"That's just stunning. Matches the city in microcosm. Holy crap. It's Thursday and we are back after watching Manchester City. Channel, well, the Jacksonville Jaguars in terms of epic. Second half, come backs with Riyad Mahrez in the role of Trevor Lawrence waffle House for dinner for real tonight. It is then. What did we just witness together? I'm still not quite sure who you know. This is a place where you can come on and tell me and ask you a question as we do it live. Here on amp, the live audio platform that allows you to FOP to participate in the conversation for those of you with us on amp right now. You know the routine requested call in.

If you're not an amp and you're listening on the podcast, do you even Conte, download the app on your phone to ask your question live and join us in this community. It is one of the most beautiful things of the postgame experience. I always feel sad that the final whistle, another game gone of the number we will share together in our lives. But to know we're going to hit this amp, it thrills me with joy. And I want to begin with this toast by raising this third first bird of the day. God, I need this to the ridiculousness of this season's bottom half at the table. Whereas tabloid reports are, and there's always an element of truth in a fraction of figment, they're going to be feverish levels right now to predict the demise of David Moyes at West Ham, as his team of imploded ahead of the game this weekend against Everton. If he loses, he will be fired, podcaster says the worry. He will lose, but there are also trying to ship that Everton are on the brink of replacing manager Frank Lampard with their former boss. Yes, the same man, David Moyes. Prop because the Everton board are trying to work out exactly how they can hire a new manager without gaining any of those pesky benefits of the new manager bounce thing. I just raise this bud to chaos and emotion and irrationality and the cycle of life. I will say about David Moyes at Everton football club. I like David Moyes a lot as a human being. But him being reappointed after being a Goodison Park through some scrappy years of making deal with very little and making wonders happen on occasion between 2002 and 2013. It all reminds me of a life wisdom that English comedian Matt Lucas dropped on me when he came on the men in blazes sharing Matt said you can meet everyone twice in life once when you're on the way up. And once when you're on the way down and the way Matt told the joke, he ended it by saying, so it's good to be back, but the moral of that comment really important is treat people the same with kindness in both moments of time. And top the motif but tonight experience both moments in time the surging, joy in the feeling that anything is possible. And then the reality. No, everything is impossible. You are what you are. Manchester City for Tottenham to a reschedule game caused by the queen's passing back in September, two teams who you have to remember were so proud back then, but they now linked in having both lost in epic derbies over the weekend, Manchester City, talking about how they wanted the school more goals for more players. They gave Julian Alvarez, his second Premier League star, Katie B, miss training this week for personal reasons, was amongst those who dropped to the bench. And this really was, this is amazing. It feels like a science fiction piece of writing when I say this, even for Manchester City, for both teams really. This was a must win and spurs God bless opened optimistically. They won their share of possession, Benton Kerr, so reassuring to have him back. It was magnificent honestly to see it for the first time since mid November, but city soon drove Tottenham backwards and pepper said before the game. I found this really fascinating. He said, how do we team more possession, which we have and turn it into goals? He said, we need runners, not just erling. If we had just Sterling, he'll be controlled by two or three central defenders. We need to get more players in these possessions, more often. And honestly, first off, often they really did not hold on. Look dreamed of confidence, 9 touches in the second half. Just before the half hour, Miguel galeni tweeted at 309 minutes without a goal, this is now the second longest drought of Holland's career since he left Norway in 2019. I also felt sad. It was a moment when I felt sad for Harlem. He looked bereft like a U.S. number 9 who's on the field, not to score just to run around and do stuff. And occlusive city came from on goals that deflected RICO Lewis drive that laurice did well to get that loaded tip aside and surprised for when the opportunity to fling the ball somehow into his own net spoons. We've come to know them as a second half team, but they performed the inexplicable on the stroke of halftime. Edison, who in his own quiet way has become a strangely erratic goalkeeper, passed the ball. Let's just say it was in the vicinity of robbery. Was it a pass or did he is it technically did he reach the ball in the vicinity of roger, whatever Rodri never stood a chance, lost control, ball came out to kulu, probably one of the last players you want to receive the ball in that situation. He stepped forward and just shot with perfection into the corner of the net goal for spurs, bigger goal for arsenal football club and it would get worse for Manchester City. Harry Kane wouldn't give up with the ball on the right hand side when it from rodrigue thrashed it in their descent, principal right out central Edison Royale delivered a header that was his precise as the barber's job on this side burns artfully shaped rare info ball Edison on Edison violence and pep on the sideline had a face on him like he was trying to keep tranquilo. Remember pep does not mind the score. He has one thing, hashtag pep to U.S. men's national team. It's happening. There were boos ringing out a half time. Yes, booze. Astonishing, booze for a team. You have seen when the title for four years out of 5, but yes, booze wasn't sure if it was city fans, or was it spurs fans? Bummed that the team were prevented from scoring again at Kevin herb tweeted us to say it's actually spurs fans booing their own side for helping arsenal, whatever, it was remarkable to witness Benton Kerr, so key for spurs. His presence meant that Harry Kane didn't have to chop back his deep to get the ball spurs so much more a full 11 with him on the field and got to say halftime.

"The great British bake off backlash has reached a boiling point. Can the show be saved? But Judy Berman something is run in the great British bake off tent, I know it, you know it. The countless viewers on both sides of the Atlantic who post derisive memes as each new episode drops, know it. Many longtime fans will tell you that TV's kindest competition officially titled the great British baking show in the U.S. has been in decline since 20 17s 8th season when it jumped from public television to channel four, and Netflix swamped beloved judge Mary berry for prue leith and lost original hosts superkicks and Mel gedroits. But season 13, whose finale airs November 15th in the UK and hits Netflix the 18th has made even its most recent antecedents look delectable by comparison, bake off is now a mess of toddler in the kitchen proportions. The problem certainly isn't the contestants. This year's final 5, in particular, are so likeable, talented, and sweet to one another, that each elimination hurts like burning your hands on a hot pan. One competitor was so distraught by the shocking dismissal of her strongest rival in the quarterfinals that she couldn't enjoy her third straight star baker win, while leval faced their share of criticism. The personalities of current hosts Noel Fielding and Matt Lucas and judges leith and Paul Hollywood, the only cast member who's been with the show since the beginning aren't the main issue either. What's really tanking bake off are the challenges, which means that theoretically, it shouldn't be too hard for the show to get back on track. What you might ask if you haven't followed season 13 or scrolled social media since the summer, lucky you. Could possibly be so wrong with the challenges that they're ruining an annual fall tradition that millions of hands cherish. The answer is damn near everything. On the most basic level, the show has tasked its home bakers with projects that don't so much stretch the definition of the word baking has openly mock it. Spring rolls, ice cream, s'mores, none of these technical challenge tasks showcases contestants skills as bakers, unless you do what bake off did and breed define us more as a marshmallow sandwiched between ganache smeared cookies. What's next? Oven baked Doritos dusted with artisanal ranch powder. The show was also taken heat for its divergence from traditional baked goods and forays into non British cuisine, areas that often seem as foreign to the judges as it is to many of the contestants. We do quite often get into trouble because we don't quite understand the cultural references leith told E. News in response to a relatively playful outcry about the cylindrical s'mores. It's all good humored. Nobody minds other people looking a bit of an idiot. I'm absolutely not an expert on s'mores. I've always thought they were a sort of snack and they could be any flavor. We're fortunate that this season's pizza challenge, which featured versions of the Italian staple topped with everything from Tex mex guacamole to the baked beans and black pudding that come with a full English breakfast.

"Somewhere in Thomas the tank engine may be picked. Oh my God, by your own day in single. From the men in blazers studios in the crap, part of Bedford, New York, the crap part of West Hollywood, California, it's the men in places podcast rod. We back like Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears. For one week old me. How are you doing? I'm doing, I'm doing okay, roger flew out to the coast late on Sunday Night for a bit more jeopardy, cramming in as many episodes as possible before the World Cup starts. But I know you were also traveling this weekend. Yeah, I was in New Orleans. Oh, my home away from home. The city that Larry Nance junior built, oh, watching. The mighty green wave. Yes, the two long periods. The tulane green wave, not one of the most fashionable football programs in the NCAA. Yeah, I think they had their first sellout for like 12,000 years. I will say, if you're listening to you probably need to have more than like one hot dog vendor in one beer van den now, you have, you know, actual fans, but I did have. And I want to acknowledge this. I did have one of the most perfect sports weekends. The green wave up to number 23. That is, that is heavy. Honestly, I bite your own off forever to finish 23rd this season. It's possible. But they weren't. I mean, dominantly. LA to all the Memphis fans who are so really a glorious bunch of human beings. At the stadium, a lot of GFPs Everton won. I mean, we will discuss that with we're still with a massive amount of astonishment the bears won last night didn't just win, but I mean this was this was Super Bowl 20 level domination over the New England Patriots to take that Tommy vital. You bastard. And Liverpool lost. Yeah, this all makes you until that final sentence, rod. This all made you feel like a better person. And then at the end, with Liverpool's last, you just had to reveal yourself again. It's funny because I have to talk about that. I just threw that in just because there is an Everton song that they've sung since I was a kid that just would have wonderful with the end of the best kind of weekend is when I'm singing the blues whenever to win and Liverpool lose, but we gotta Jeff OP at doctor M Baxter. Who wanted them? How are you feeling, roger after Everton Crystal Palace? Are you feeling amazingly gleeful at the double three points hinting, I think, there at the Liverpool lost two. Or existential dread knowing that Everton and their season peaked today. And I've got to be candid. I laughed when I read that tweet because you called me out. You see through me, doctor and backstage, even in moments of happiness, David. The Cossacks are behind every door, remember. I savor the joy for a fleeting minute and now I know we have something to lose. A lot to lose. Yeah, well, it is, but it was fleeting joy. And more than fleeting joy, it was a rampant performance, but we'll get to that later. How did you experience Liverpool's lots? Well, a little bit. As doctor M said, I did think, wow, Everton, that was like the, if that was the height of the season, I loved it. And I made memories, but I thought a lot about not as you hinted, trying to take vicarious pleasure from rivals defeat. I flew a lot recently about something that Matt Lucas said when he came on our show, the little Britain creator, massive, massive Arsenal fan. And he said something that I've really not forgotten and that I'm really trying to channel into at the moment, he said, you always got to remember in life, you meet everyone twice. Once when you're on the way up and then again, when you're on the way down and he said, treat them both times accordingly. And that David is how I'm trying to treat both the victory and the slaying of all my rivals this weekend, knowing full well. That joy is a false friend. It's a very false friend, David. I think Matt Lucas said that on our show about ten years ago, Rogers has taken a long time for it to sink in. Okay, before we get into this weekend's football news from Gaul or at least many places world headquarters. We are just 26 days until the World Cup spelled with a queue and we are packing our football and style top kits and preparing to head out across this great nation for our men in places this cups for you to in which we'll celebrate the tournament with you, did you have help? It all kicks off in New York City and then we'll slingshot out of our adopted hometown to hit Philadelphia, D.C., Austin, Atlanta, St. Louis, LA, San Francisco, Seattle, and Nashville. I'd like to think of it less slingshot, more, well, a casual meander a bit like the bubbles across David Moyes filled their vision when the winds in that London Stadium. That's one of my favorite things in football when Boise leaves the field. There's a few sites more incongruous than just him. The grouch and the joyful bubbles of victory, but back to the tour Devo. I do want to say, we are blown away. This has been World Cup time and just football just girding its loins. The incredible guests who are going to be joining us to revel and make memories every single step of the way starting in New York City,

"Don't Jack you Ross or something and there was a friction for manager and chess that kind of went away but in any event I thought you're twice as nice too but yeah and MC twine while we're talking about Detroit twine Matt Lucas. He was good too. So 888-876-5593 Henry and North Carolina. There you go. So now that you've heard all of the Tennessee whiskys, what do you think? A great analysis for all I knew you would do it. And the way you presented it from David Allen Cole up through and then put add on and then step within right after that, I can see it's all about the range of it. Yeah. Yeah, and you would say. If you didn't know the earlier stuff, you'd swear it was the same record. I didn't look at I didn't look at that. I asked you because it was sort of haunting me a little bit. But I knew I knew you would come up with great explanation. And I appreciate that very much. My pleasure, I'm glad you thought of it. It gave me something to talk about. It seems like it had little interest point out there for a couple of people. Yeah, well, Chris Stapleton is good. And he's a relative newcomer. And I know in 2015, I think he won the newcomer award. That's the only song that I know by him, but I really like his voice. And I'd like to guitar. Yeah, well, you can check him out. I'm sure this stuff is all on YouTube, everything is, but he's had a number of big country records, and strangely enough that wasn't one of them. Like I say, it only got to number 58 or something like that. And it's weird because he has number one records like broken halos and stuff like that. So but they play it all over here where I am in South Carolina. Yeah, it really makes you wonder how a record can only get to the lower 50s nationally and everybody plays it. Yeah. You know, I looked up, you know, you taught me something else too. I didn't know what a beach music was, just change the subject. I didn't know what beach was. I was in Jersey for years. I thought beechman was supposed to California. Boys, and that kind of stuff. I was like, yeah, nothing to do with it. When I came down here, somebody said, I want to go listen to a beach there's a band. I said, yeah, okay. I thought I was going to hear the peaceful assortment. Surf and safari or something like that. And I heard a whole new range. Then I picked it up from you that it was and where it started and the kind of music it was. And then the dance, and I thought to myself, shagged dance, is that like the bump, you know, I'm just thinking of my mind and then one day I looked up the competition, the big competition for shag dancing, very complicated. Yeah, there's money in it too. And of course, is the state Nancy South Carolina and some of the schools even have it as an athletic event. But it's just a slowed down version of the jitterbug. The basic steps don't change, but then everything among it can change the answer to answer. Did you ever learn to do it? Well, it's so funny you say that. I had a friend SHAD alberty who was probably the world class shagger. He won a fortune with that. And he taught shagging and he used to say, I can teach anybody to shag except Raleigh. No. I am just not, I'm not fit for, you know, video consumption. No, you don't want to have anything. That's funny. It's more like an animal act. It really is. Can't be that bad. But I like the way I like the way you say that. Yeah. It's funny. Yeah, but it's a pretty complex and look to me. I was looking at the championship dancers. It's fun to look at some of the kids, you know, some of the kids that are 13 years old and stuff like that or just amazing. Yeah, it's much different than I thought, you know, you never really know. Until you see it. It's just a slowed down version of the jitter bug that back in the days of segregation, the audience is upstairs, the whites would look down on the blacks and understand, oh, it's like that. Because of course. Yeah. And wonderful. And yeah, you know, still, they pale by comparison, but you don't see too many African Americans in those competitions, which is a shame. Right. Right. Yeah. It looks to me like it takes a little practice. And you've got to have good rhythm to do that. That's exactly right. Yes, precisely, right? Yeah. You either do or you don't. Yeah. You're born with it or you're not. But you have a great year for all the music in the world. So, you know, it's just. I know what I like. That's about it, but you know, I'm basically tone deaf, so like John will say, this sounds like so and so. Well, if it's not the same record in the same arrangement, I'm not going to recognize who it is. Not a child. Very well. But if I've heard it, and it's something I like, well, I'll remember it forever. Yeah. Yeah, well, hey, you know, you're my go to person for everything musical. Oh, man. I don't know that I can live up to that, but it's always wonderful to hear from you. It's great to talk to you too, while I have a good evening. You too. All right. 888-876-5593. We'll get to cherry.

"As well. So it's not interesting, but I don't think if you've ever heard it, sorry, that revenge is a fantastic idea. That's good. I understand it, but I'm not sure it's the right thing to do. And for us, I understand. That more said that he said he wanted to put it right. I want to put it right. And generally, we say, you always meet twice in life. So that sounds more as a threat than it actually is. It's just like behave better in the first moment because if you meet again, you will get the reception. God, I love this approach to life. Actually similar to one, the Matt Lucas, the British comedian, came on our show and talked about it. He was talking about arsenal, he was talking about his life. He was talking about his career. He said, you meet everyone twice in life. Once on the way up and once on the way down, be aware of that and treat everyone accordingly and I love the ethos. I love that approach to life. I do believe that's a life truth. But let's delve a little deeper into the Champions League with the next question. This is Chris going from South Jordan, Utah, excited to see full on jumping back up into the Premier League this next year. Just sitting here pondering a lot of debates about our messy and Ronaldo playing at the same time the two best ever. And I started to think, what about pep and Carlo Ancelotti? Are we seeing some of the best managers of all time all competing against each other, weekend, week out, tournament after tournament, interested to hear your thoughts? Thanks. Chris, oh, I love a city in America, which is named after Pickford. I do wonder if there is a north Jordan and if there is, was that name for hendo email me. Men in places at Gmail dot com I need to know the full story, but look, at the highest level right now, football is one, as with the Premier League shows us by infinitesimal marginal differences and managers often provide that different talk about the chopper Tony quote, the great Italian cage once said a good coach can make a team 10% better, a bad coach, 30% worse. And every coach has swing to in the modern game believes that these percentages are very, very, very, very off. It's much more than that. What a great coach can bring to a team. I mean, just look at pep and Klopp and now in the Premier League, we're blessed to call Conte Frank Lampard here you all shout at your pod radios Liverpool without Klopp or a shadow of the quadruple chasers. They have been sitting without pep. I mean, all of those egos competitive ego suddenly unbounded. They'd be like a barrel without the hoops to bind it, but Ancelotti, and chance to actually a fascinating different case because he approaches coaching like a consummate global multinational CEO. He specializes in Polish mega clubs, which makes Everton an even funnier just moment on his a blit really on this LinkedIn. His job is to keep massive brands global brands of football clubs humming by managing a managing his bosses, managing his board and stoically staying out the lone light on the side of that field. And this run. This Real Madrid Champions League run of bedlam of epic history seeping through to the present of transcendent moments of alchemy really a team of moments, a team content to say it compact and then erupt and furling chaos. Colley's been very clear when asked, what are you doing to conjure this? He's honest. He said, I don't know at times how they do it. I can't explain it. He's also talked about how at times during this run, instead of giving team talks, he's turned to his experienced players and asks them what they do. What ideas did they have down the stretch? Which makes him the right manager for this Real Madrid. In a funny way, real Richard would not be here without his soft, velvet touch with his experienced players moderate and crew. I mean, combined age what, a 127. They look so mono paste through huge parts of the game and you start to wonder, are they a liability? Only for them to just turn and drop a dime from 50 yards and you're like, oh my God, your body is a Wonderland. And then look at the young talents who've grown in confidence under college experience leadership. For this year's junior, who we revere, who is in almost every preview right behind Benzema in terms of Real Madrid's weapons, he's gone from a joke. He was a wasted young big buy who could not finish and he has become a lethal weapon. Indeed, him and Trent, as I said, that, to me, is the battle to watch, but everyone will be looking at Ben tomat the rise and rise of this man who complicated, controversial, but in this campaign has really been a global circus act repeatedly catching bullets in his teeth. That's what his goals have been. That all inspiring the clinical of them, the epic nature of them, the late Late Late Show nu of them all, and the thing about Real Madrid, surviving Petro clubs, PSG, Chelsea, man city, in such miraculous fashion. It's kind of granted that campaign a quasi messianic undertone. There wouldn't have been that extraordinary. It's really remarkable and that is why I believe they're almost playing with Alex money. This has been legendary, whatever happens, but Ancelotti will know if Liverpool don't win. This vaunted season of quadruple chasing human one there and extreme endurance, which is wilt, simply end with back to back weekends of disappointment like a beautifully ornate but punctured air blue..

"Done because he's having to bleed some more money out of the rams because Kentucky pays so well. I think over his latest updated deal, he stands to make an average of 1.2 million a year at Kentucky, whereas I don't think the rams offered him that out of the gate and he's trying to get compensated there. It speaks well of what Kentucky's done. They've spent on facilities. They've spent on stoops to keep him. They spent on the staff across the board. They have three different assistants making over a $1 million a year. They've just announced they're going to upgrade their indoor practice facility. They will have done a complete transformation of the program from a financial and facility standpoint to the point that they can compete with everybody, I think. Finally, on that subject, it was another big year in Kentucky. We see this now twice in the last couple of years. Where does this program go from here? Well, they want to win the SEC east. And obviously, try to win the SEC. That's a tall order. I think it's a lot of people think it's a pipe dream. Even winning the east is so tough because now you've got this other juggernaut in Georgia there. But Kentucky is positioned itself as the second or third best team in the SBC east for a good stretch of time now to go 40 years between ten win seasons and then have two of them in the last four years under Mark stoops. Finish above 500 in the SEC. That's something that Kentucky just hasn't done. And now can they take that next step? That's a huge the remaining steps are huge ones. They've taken a bunch of they've climbed a bunch, but I don't know if they can take the next step. I think they're doing all the things that you would think you have to do. They just signed their best recruiting class ever. I think the transfer portal may be opened the door there for a program like Kentucky to do the unthinkable because you can get impact players like Wanda Robinson who comes in and in one year sets all their receiving records and will levis who's been a game changer at quarterback for them. If you get three or four of those guys plus great recruiting, the transfer portal may be lets them make a move. Especially if Georgia falters or somebody gets hurt in the middle of the year or a couple of upset there on Georgia's schedule, maybe Kentucky can keep positioning itself to be there ready and waiting if that opportunity presents itself. Great conversation is always with Kyle Tucker. We will see you soon, Kyle. Thank you very, very much for joining us. We'll see you in the SEC tournament and we are coming back with much, much more. You are listening to the Paul finebaum show podcast. And we welcome all of you back. More phone calls here and more guests a little bit later on and let's check out Charles is up next in Georgia. Hello, Charles. We are doing well. Thank you. Let's do it. I want to talk to you about a few things. My first question is, who do you think might be replacing Matt Lucas or the lack of? Charles, I'm not certain based on what Kirby smart has done recently. It's going to be somebody he feels very comfortable with his last two major hires have been will muschamp and Mike Bobo before that. If you remember he brought Scott Cochran over so he likes people that he has been around before. Right, right? Now.

"And so two things. One, that's the root cause of when people are picturing mobile games in their head. They're picturing free to play garbage in predatory garbage like that. Or a bad controls. That's still a thing too. Where it's like, just that like, you know, if a series is famous a Castlevania or having really good D pad controls, like, you should be able to play it on a controller. And that's more and more obviously possible now to hook up a control of Bluetooth controller or whatever tier you're done. Yeah, I never liked the criticism of like, oh, well, phones weren't made for games. And it was like, well, neither a keyboard or nobody can talk. No, I know. Some of the greatest games ever touchscreen based. You have to make the games for them. Exactly, you have to make the games natively for the platform that they're on. But Zoe keeper world, the game that everyone on this show is hooked on. Yeah. It's an Apple arcade game. And Apple AK is the greatest thing. It's the greatest invention. $5 a month and there's new games every week. And they have absolutely no ads and they have absolutely no in app purchases. And so it's been such a, it's so rekindled my personal love of mobile games. And they're not all hits, they're not all good, but they're included with your subscription and actually the hit to miss ratio is fantastic. Yeah, Sam, there's some kind of new galaga game on there that just came out. Yeah. Oh, really? Yeah. From namka? I assume. That's neat. Am I correct me if I'm wrong? I feel like it's been a while now since there's been a big mobile game that was like a big phenomenon. Like so like something like angry birds or flappy bird or Pokémon go or even like Fortnite. Even like candy crush, game of war and then clash of clans. I feel like it's been a while since there's been a game that's like that I've heard of. Yeah, I think the exceptions now are to the Fortnite point, the exceptions now are like the games that are also available on mobile that people gravitate towards like enchant impact and Fortnite being pretty prominent examples. Is the one I was going to name drop. I think developers have kind of wised up and there's not very many that are exclusive to that platform anymore. Yeah, my way to tell this is like when you're watching like a TV show and they have like the kid playing on their phone the whole time, it's like, what is that kid playing? If they mention it, like, right now, it's usually Fortnite. Yeah. Yeah, which is always 6 months behind. Zookeeper world puzzle game of the year. I know there are levels. Justin, are you watching the great British baking show? Yes, yeah. Dude, Jurgen. He's destroying everybody. I know. The German Jurgen. But Giuseppe, the Italian Giuseppe is also very good. The two of them are shoo in for the final and then I love chicks and cristal both so much that I'm dreading this week when one of them has to go home. Yeah. Yeah. Both of those are it's been a really good season. I think it's gonna go down as the best seasoning. Tina Sam. Sam's probably not watching the show, but Tina. No. Too many cards. He's like too many cards. There are no cards. Yeah, what? 'cause you guys like it so much. There's like a there's a baking show on Netflix that I put on is a background thing. It's like, I think it's called impossible baking and they call it bacon nearing. They pair an engineer with a baker, and then they have to create the structures that are mechanically involved, but also still edible. It's a whole thing. So I've been watching that relevantly. Well, the I mean, there's many episodes, many seasons of the great British baking show on Netflix. I'm greatly enjoying this latest one. I like Noel Fielding from mighty bush a lot. I like him a lot too. And I'm like, he seems like such a weird fit for a host for this show, but I'm so and I'm so glad that he's there. He gets better as he goes. Matt Lucas, though, no, thank you.

He's he's one of the few guys with my name. That is you know looms large pop culture and the other one is no gallagher. Who's kind of a jerk. So definitely enroll fielding. Put us through a lot. What even is a wonderwall I only bring this up because they do a thing on on great british baking show every week. it's like a different theme. they've got biscuit week or Trump week or pie week or whatever japanese week. Well you know what we're doing that would they don't own that. They don't own that ben. We're going to do that. Well we will weakest for us we are. We're introducing a theme this week which is historical heist. These are as you know longtime ridiculous story. We love a good heist tail in a heist. You can see this cinematic scope of humanity. You can see the highs the lows you can see inspiration you can see villainy and we thought you know we would today kick off this week by having a story that is technically a heist. But it's it's a heist maybe not in the way you would expect. It's a story of inspiration. It's a story of audacity ambition. it's ultimately a story about freedom and it's an amazing story that we feel very fortunate to share with you. There is a guy we'd love to introduce you to his name. Is robert smalls. So robert smalls if you've never heard of him let's make cinematic. Let's lean into this so there is a great like opening scene from a book called e. Free or die. The amazing story of robert smalls escape from slavery to union hero and knoll. You wanna you wanna kick us off your. Let's let's set this up and max in a lien on your amazing sound design powers. Okay so the the the logos popped up right. Rh blah blah blah blah and then we fade out and it's nighttime darkness still blanketed the city of charleston and the early hours of may thirteenth eighteen. Sixty two as a light breeze carried. The briny sent martius across his quiet harbor. Only the occasional ringing of ships bell competed with the sounds of waves lapping against the wooden off where confederate side wheel. Steamer named the planter was moored. The wolf stood a few miles from the fort sumter where the first shots of the civil war and fire just a little more than a year before as thin wisps of smoke. Rise from the vessels smokestack high above the pie. The house twenty-three-year-old three year old. Enslaved men in robert smalls stood on the deck. The next few hours he and his young family would other find freedom from slavery or face certain death. yeah. I think we stopped there. This is the moment and we want you to have that image. Burn in your mind and keep it here because this is about to be the defining decision of this young man's life. Let's learn a little bit about him and let's learn about what led him to this moment there on may thirteenth so robert smalls is born on april fifth. Eighteen thirty nine. He is born on an estate run. A plot of land at five eleven prince street in beaufort south carolina. He is born into slavery his mother. Lydia was a in the house at the time but she grew up working the fields and she was not from this town originally. She been taken from her own family when she was just nine years old. The story of small's father is largely lost history. There are few suspects or there. Few suspected patriarchs but none have been clearly identified. We know that at least according to some great work by historians quoted with pbs. We know that the slave labor family the mckee family the patriarch of them. Was john mckee for some reason. They seem to favour young robert over the other. Enslaved children that were living on the property and that causes some historians to speculate. That perhaps john mckee was roberts biological. That's the detail that causes story instantly most in that direction and speaking historians highly recommend checking out henry. Louis gates juniors article on pbs. It's actually transcript of a series that this historic wonderful story and did call the african americans many rivers to cross You can find that on. Pbs dot org. Just search for robert smalls henry. Louis gates don't wanna read you the headline quite yet. Because it's a spoiler but you're right. Been a lot of times. The history of family lineage. In these slave situations were lost to history for obvious reasons. Yeah and this was by design in some cases. Here's the thing he he had. He had friends and he would hang out with them and he would be a pushing the envelope. Against some of the draconian rules over class and behavior in this community most notably. He ignored the curfew that was for all black people in town and he would hang out with his white friends. His mother was very very worried about this because she thought he would grow up without fully understanding the horrors of slavery and so she intended to give him a education. She said look. He has to go work in the fields for a while. The asked to watch people as they are being whipped and being being whipped in this time. Make no make.

He did seem to really like checkers. He times of crisis thing after nine. Eleven when he was mulling whether or not going to stand down that was where we went and he'd sit on the terrorist. The glass of wine as roma's guitar and that is where he made decisions. What what about you so several times and a number of different things we show all the different uses of checkers for dinner for the dinners for some lunch. Shares but also for meetings ministers and sort of policy discussions which were bit looser. And they were better for. This is john. Major had a series where he which i was at which where he boosting first cabinet ministers and then junior ministers in different tranches to discuss what ought to be in a manifesto. And i think that was a nice atmosphere for into it. So i don't know any prime minister who hasn't really enjoyed checkers. And it's i think it does do. What the founders. Who gave it to the nation. Hope that it would do it. Certainly did it for for church. And i'm for all the prime ministers i've encountered a work with. It was funny. We some of the history of it was part of the reason for doing. It was because the an awareness of the possibility in the future that not every prime minister would have their own country home executive. You get one chance per day.

Check is summit where the cabinet agreed to theresa. May's brexit deal on the day. Boris johnson quays as foreign secretary would be little could If that was the topic of compensation for the guests that i'm so there will be others Personally by the way. I think reflects very well on theresa may that she is going. I think she is the she is the person who's recognizing that actually this resident this estate thous- hold place in bush politically history and the the office is bigger than its occupants. Although the other prime ministers absolutely say stress than snubbing the occasion at they simply have dari clashes.

It's all a baby. I remembered something about david. Blunkett what it was at that may review. Maybe let me see what else we haven't got very much. It's been so much fun already when we think we've got another five minutes. We're going to move this. How do you belong next is coming into the other. one is the same. Thanks for paying twice.

Let's talk about your into music. Which i didn't know until i percents g. o. clearly successful. I don't like music. I'm your your man of many taliban. What the j. reign of. How did the other three feel about. Let me it's it's a fair question and we the first time we had booked kind of what are you. Cold always hated those kind of jazz names whiplash show the real ones weather report shack attack. There weird so the classes you put your name on it and they will just coming on names on how they. That's how okay. So it's it's my fault at where they coming because your name was completely sold out. And you'll find links to my gigs on jay. Raina dot co dot. Uk fuck you. Okay why is it bad. Jazz appeals team because it does not appeal to me. Well one of the one of the great things i mean. Have getting into this. When you're older is the realization that you don't give a flying fuck with someone else doesn't like it. I don't it's not my job to educate or enthusi- toll. I really love and all the people who love jazz like what we do and we'll never played massive rooms. We've gone six hundred seaters if you like it. That's great and if you don't as i say you'll live a pale related impoverished but that's not my okay. I kind of i really do. You mean that that. I'm not on a mission to educate or any anyone if you like what we do. That's great and if you don't other musicians are available ain't away as a critic. Yeah that's quite an odd way to respond. Isn't it because you criticize other. You know. I've written a dozen books. I do live shows that jazz. And i get criticized. You get reviewed. And that's absolutely fine. And i tend to the thing that i thought was that if you take a very positive review seriously as someone who is the best thing since whatever and if you take that positive affirmation then you also have to absorb all the negative. How restaurants deal. With what i write is entirely up to them but my approach is i may look at it and think it's good for business so bad for business but i desperately try not to let it impinge upon how i feel about myself now. It's it's interesting to be doing to have two things. i also think it's useful to be reviewed. Oh yes i'd had. Those ship backing book reviews and everybody was a critical twitter. There's enough people to tell me. What a wanker. They think i am. And that's fine. But when i write a restaurant review i hope i do it with enough conviction and authority that they just have to live with it. If i say eighty four pound wine was actually thirty bucks. They comedy is regards to the critics. You know if it's not just the audience laughing. How'd you know if you're doing jazz well or badly exactly the same way you keep selling tickets people. Come up and tell you. I'm not buying into this. Their they enjoyed it. i applaud. Sometimes they got up and down. Danzig dont dancing. Is a good sign. Kahad dance to jazz. Imagine it depends. What kind of jazz. You're listening to keep going richard. I'm just enjoying the fact. You're slightly annoying. If i if i was making my living justice jazz. Yeah christ. I'd make very very scant living. I suspect i would be desperately trying to convince you the virtue of everything we But i'm not but sideline that's true. I'm getting older as well as you. You know you realize everything for everyone does twitter within the and i don't like what you're doing. Go okay follow me. you don't have it. The writing for the observers restaurant. Cullum is the comment section. Underneath and i am constantly mystified by the people who turn up furious with me before. They've even read a word by the time. Read it and then comment about how furious and lifted anything. Why are you doing this. Actually you really like really man being livid giving you pleasure i'm here to serve. Yes well that's that's a good reveling and we're going to have to wrap up. I was going to ask you a question about public school. But i will ask you just the second audience the the ones that are in already sort of recently. Been the article about How we're governed by public school boys and it seems to me it's cloud. Did you have a nice time public school. They threw me out. I went to one of those. I went to one of the foot of high-achieving jews right. Is this the love i went. I went to the same school as david deal. It was the era of me in sacha baron cohen matt lucas. So it was horrible everywhere. I didn't like it particularly. I remember being. I still nurse the resentment that i was told by one particular teacher. Michael lump rare. I like to name check that. I couldn't work in the school magazine because it was only for those who had a real real estate prospect to getting into what a one. And i nurse that i really do. I think also look at those teachers. Those people who went into teaching in public schools thinking you thought that was the best way to use your skills to teach a lot of over privileged over achieving kids. Who would have been fine anyway. Yeah if you really care about education to go and try to educate people really needed to give pandering to the audience. I mean that it feels like you came from a very close family. An and what reading the article recently about it but having read quite a lot about it seems like a lot of a lot of young people feel abandoned by being sent to public school and then then become probably he's was specifically about boarding school and you have to i. I wasn't voting. And i've always paramus. You think what is in your mind when you go well dollar your eight no longer need your parents fuck off. Well it's it.

So i hope everybody please tune in and then goes with. The twin peaks podcast. Where hopefully eventually. We're going to get our ninety eight episode recorded. We didn't get that done this week. Sadly but You know what are those things that didn't work out. But that's okay but hopefully we're gonna finish up our discussion of hotel room. David lynch's series from nineteen ninety-three and then leading up to our big one hundredth episode. So what to see what happens with that one some big stuff. I think bigger big announcement. I think on that one so everybody pleased tune-in in their last but certainly not nearly drunk cinema whereas handed is Email my co host on ghost with twin peaks podcast in also on drug cinema where we We just finished up talking ghostbusters. Nineteen eighty-four is zan. Had a little bit. Too much of the apricot brandy favored by bill. Murray in that movie but Here coming up in a couple of weeks we're gonna be discussing robocop. One thousand nine hundred eighty s robocop. Who is he robocop. What is he where does he come from. And we're gonna be discussing all of that in our unofficial. Peter weller movie series. Continues with robocop fabulous. Always a big fantasy editor. Oh nine walking down the stairs stairs apparently the daleks now have it on itunes because they at least can go up and down stairs now unlike ed to oh nine the savvy does he wails like a little baby we yes really pathetic on you have with those amazing guns but you're such a baby. It's always it's right. It's always the bully exactly. They played tough for the actually super wins folks. I look when it comes to me if you are country.

"matt lucas" Discussed on Next Stop Everywhere: The Doctor Who Podcast
"Whatever we can. I guess but this is. One of our favorite movies is one that i love quoting constantly. So you know. We're gonna have a lot of fun with this. I know a lotta people wanted us to do this. One and i just did my rewatch of ghostbusters for the eighteenth time so i have a lot of fun watching that one and i can't wait till friday because i think they're gonna have a ball doing this would. I can't wait. Who is to be. This would be a real treat. I think and i hope it re tunes it and checks it out so drug cinema right. I've got going on holly. Thank you so much for joining me once again. Thank you to our next time. Puppy had fund and i shared his final thoughts. You want to share with everybody before we say. I'm having a blast. But hey what's next week's episode gonna be well. That's a great segue holly just in two weeks. We're going to be shifting to a biweekly scheduled for the summer. Okay she especially with jesse and actually also because especially next wednesday because a week from today is yours truly fifty second birthday. I happy early birthday so my my birthday treat is to light monday evening load by not recording next everywhere so hope everybody is patient with me in the process. But we'll be back in two weeks for episode two thirty six as we're gonna do. We done one of these. Since i think christmas time last year. We're going to go back to the peter capaldi era which we haven't done for a set for a long time to watch the ears of light as part of our revisited series where we go back and do commentaries for the episodes. We've already discussed and joining me for that. One is christine paryski herself. Because she's the one who actually requested eaters of light because all she is apparently a big dardel fan and this is an episode that features gnarled pretty heavily. So if you're a fan of matt. Lucas fan of article or as capaldi likes to call them dark dole or. I think you'll enjoy this in christine drug cinema. So i know she's excellent doing the commentaries and i think you guys are for treat next time they right so we're probably doing so capaldi done that while and holly. I know you're gonna be back hopefully later this summer times do with yours truly so i can't for that so thank you again either. You're very welcome everybody else. Come back two weeks episode. Thirty sixty years of light. Whatever revisited episodes with christy paryski and yours truly right here next up everywhere. The doctor who podcast give everybody..
Bonding: It's like 50 Shades of Gray... But Funny
"Our first guest star in the netflix. Show bonding which is about a subject. We can't really talk about on a family show. Think fifty shades of grey. But funny. and you're kind of their brendan scannel and matt lucas. Welcome to ask me another high for having us welcome. I just want to start by saying. I love that bonding as a show as a topic exists. Absolutely it's definitely one of the shows where as it was coming out. I was like i wonder how my family is gonna feel about this. I'm like i'm deeply irish. Catholic has eight siblings and my dad has five in all my aunts and uncles are like love that show with all the whips and rather everything. Everything i ever do. I'm half-naked end so at this point. I'm just kind of used to it right at some point. You're like i and a hat that's too much to buy. I know this season. They had this season. They had a like a jumper made for me and with an apron over. And i was like whoa. I'm like i'm clothed. I'm actually fully clothed. Like what a strange turn. Sure all right well. Are you up for some games. Would you guys like to play some games. I love games. That's you do so you're gonna take turns answering questions in this first game. Here's what's going to happen. We're going describe fictional animals as if they were presented at a competition like the westminster dog show so some of these animals are dogs but some of them are not you. Just tell us the name of the animal or the title of the work that it comes from. Okay brendan this is for you next in the working group. We have a great dane who deviates from the breed standard. He's over five feet tall. The judge will never watch gate and look look at this. He's walking on hind legs. Some highly unusual behavior from this dog as he seems to be leaning over to talk to his handler shaggy. Yes he say shaggy. A i mean this has to be miscue be do. I always love the mask. Reveal they would have the double mask reveals to. It was a ghost and then like they took it off and it was someone and they took the mask off. That person someone else surprised at. How many people's first names were old man when we go them. I'm i'm definitely old man. Old man lucas. This one is for you. Okay this entrant. In the herding group was raised on a farm and found his true calling hurting sheet. He looks comfortable in the stack position. But the judge is a little confused by spoofs and curly. Tail says first time here at madison square garden but he seems to be adjusting to being a pig in the city babe pig. I never seen that. It's supposed to be adorable though it is it is pretty. I mean talking animals. I have no problem with talking animals. Yeah and pigs are so key. There's a there's someone in my neighborhood that has a pet pig and they walked i live. I live in the village and new york city. And like there's a person who has a pet pig And he walks the pet pig around my neighborhood. And it's really cute you very nick. I'm in brooklyn. No one has a pet pig. I feel like was something wrong here. Officially bushwick arianna guerande also has a pet pig. Really just out of curiosity. Is the pet. Pay any coats or call that ever. Although i do follow. Listen i'm gonna. I'm going to plug this. I follow this pig on instagram. Because he has an instagram account. Its arms giblet the piglet so you can like actually go check out given the piglet and see what i'm talking about and give you the piglet follows me. I feel very proud of him. That's very nice. Follow back for is give it active does giblet like comment and like what you're up to and i would just expect a lot of like political means. Yeah i guess if you ever get sick of it just like a couple. Bacon jokes over. Yeah all right. Brendan for you now. We have the toy group literally. This junior handler is a precocious six year. Old boy whose conversing with his stuff tiger while walking around the ring perhaps we don't see the tiger the same way he does. Oh i know this. Oh it's philosophers you guys. I'm very young this time it's i forget. Yes calvin hobbes. There you go.
"matt lucas" Discussed on KCRW
"And Bloomberg reporter Lucas Charlotte Lucas take him. So we're gonna look to the year ahead and I will start by saying Give me that vaccine as soon as they're ready, Al Roll up my sleeve. But will people be in theaters? We have movie scheduled and some of them may be essentially, I think dumped in theaters. I don't believe the bond date. For example, MGM has moved the bond movie multiple times. It's now in April. I don't think so. What do you guys think, Lucas? I think that MGM would like to release it them. But MGM would also be more than happy to find some company that either buys that movie or buys the whole company as it has now, For a couple of years. This has been a company, you know, very famous entertainment studio but one with the foresail on the front because it's sort of this awkward size where it's not as big as the big companies, but not small enough to be an easy acquisition. Bond is the most valuable asset. On DSA so pushing that movie to April both bought them time to see if the vaccine would be widely distributed by then. But also more time to figure out if they could find somebody to pay them. The eight or $10 billion they would like, Okay. Matt Lucas went straight to the merits of bond, which is a perfectly valid point, But I want also to address the question of when do you think people will get back in theaters? Which is impossible. You're not even a epidemiologist, but I'm gonna ask you anyway. Yeah, Assuming the trajectories of the vaccine are what they say they are. And it becomes widely available to the public in April or May. I think that that date could hold keep in mind the bond franchise does about 70 to 75% of its revenue overseas. And they seem to have their act together a little bit more than the U. S. Does. So I wouldn't be surprised if held that day. But I think the first big global movie that generates a ton of money in the U. S and overseas is probably going to be black. Widow, which is scheduled for that first weekend of May that traditional Marvel opening weekend. Either that or the fast and furious movie over Memorial Day those I think they're going to be the two Big East where people rally around them and say, OK, enough people have been vaccinated. Let's go to the movies. Probably a little optimistic, but I am sure Universal and Disney hope you're right. Lucas, did you have a thought you wanted to throw in there quick. Yeah, I'm I'm less optimistic about the performance. I think you're right that a studio will try it. There will have been enough time there would have been enough people vaccinated that they figure why not and roll the dice. But as many people as there are, who might be willing to rush out and go to the theater and, you know, support some new project. I think you'll still have a large percent of the population that either isn't vaccinated or is too scared because they're afraid of people who are not vaccinated. But that but keep in mind. Yes, I agree with you that there will be a large percentage of the population that is not vaccinated. But think about what we've been through for this past year and not being able to go to public places. Even if it's 100 million Americans that are vaccinated. People are gonna want to go to the movies. They're gonna want to go to restaurants are gonna want to express their freedom in some way, And this is a very easy way for $20 to express your desire to be out amongst people. All of the models for what kind of people show up for Marvel movies on opening weekend. All that's out the window. Even casual fans, even older people, even people who have no inter This in black widow. The character I think are going to want a communal experience. Well, we'll find out. I know theater fans are hoping that theaters could make it. Let's talk about Warner's. In that context, Jason Cuyler did this bold move. He put all the movies of 2021, citing the pandemic. There was just saying, We don't believe that onto the streaming service. There's a big fight going on. I am sensing that Hollywood is going to dig in its heels. We've seen the Directors Guild send a letter. We've seen the top heads of the agencies send letters. I predict that the Writers Guild once they get settled with signing W M E, which I believe will have happened, possibly even by the time this airs, but they have basically made deals with all the major agencies. I believe the Writers Guild will also get involved because they're this affect people's revenues and the residuals affect a lot of people in this community. So the question I have is, what is what is the consequence? What is Warners have to do Is it some people have speculated that Tyler's in trouble. Some people think that John's thanking the CEO of a TNT may be in trouble. Because the rollout of HBO Max has been so bumpy. I mean, I guess it's a two part question. Does H p O max work with all this is goose Is HBO Max to a place where it needs to be to compete with Disney, which has taken off like a bottle rocket? And who pays the price for having done this to Hollywood? Because it feels to me that somebody will have to pay I'm just going to have to be a sacrificial person to apologize to the community. Or maybe maybe that's old school thinking. What do you think, Lucas? I think those two thoughts are related. If they get HBO Max to grow at a rate that they're comfortable with. Where the movies and TV shows or perceived a successes, and they then reward the talent for that success, And the talent feels like the movie was a moment Then there won't have to be a sacrificial lamb. But if the movies don't work if HBO Max doesn't grow a bunch next year, then not only will will the talent be mad at the at the executives at Warner Brothers, but shareholders in 18 T will be angry. You know, Jason Kaehler will have to acknowledge that didn't work..
Sleepwalkers at CES
"Secure I'd never been to Las Vegas before which is the difference between us. I've Been Vegas gets too many times. I could tell and didn't feel good to be in good hands with an old vegas handler. You one of the new things. Though for me was slots which I don't normally play play. I think subconsciously I was thinking about what Tristan Harris talked about in the first season of sleep walker former Google lower. Who told us that? Instagram is actually supposed to feel a lot like slot machine or the Tristan studied at the Stanford persuasion lab and told us about how casino architecture has influenced the development of highly addictive tape products like instagram. Interesting for me to actually see Vegas and the bright lights and the impossibility of escape firsthand not to mention the replicas of if the empire state building the canals of Venice Coliseum of Rome you know I was lucky enough to see the Seattle space needle for the first time. I didn't know that it was in Las Vegas. But doesn't we were there. We were there for C.. Es The consumer electronics show in this episode. Were actually going to talk about some of the coolest things we saw there. But we're going to focus focused more on the innovations that are at the intersection of technology and humanity rather than talk about you know infamous toilet. Paper dispensers run of the big reasons we went is because we you were invited by wave maker which is an agency part of WPP to do an interview on stage alive. PODCAST so to speak with Matt Monahan. The HATTON who is head of product at publishing and publishing is part of the Washington Post Orcas also an interesting case of a and action because they're forward thinking in terms of increasing the visibility of content through personalization. An optimizing everything from headlines to photo selection all using machine learning and those are things that really matter for journalists and readers. Yeah and this use of. Ai stands out to me because it provides a solution to real problem. How do you get eyeballs on the right content when there's just so much that said the issue of personalization does raise questions about what happens when machine thought to know US better than we know ourselves not to mention and what are the appropriate limits of how companies use AI and data about us? Yeah I can definitely streamline processes by detecting patterns that you know human beings cannot see or it can allow you to scale like tag hundreds of thousands of articles that again human beings just cannot do so greater efficiency is on one side of the spectrum and extremely attractive to people but on the other side. You have issues of taking humans out of the loop like the blackbox problem and authenticity in a world of deep fake so a question for businesses and users of technology is sort of when does Ai. Add to our experience experience and when does it maybe hold us back or take advantage of us for example from seeing news stories that we should see but maybe the algorithm doesn't think we want want to see it or that we won't click on it right in the old days. When everyone received a print newspaper on their doorstep? Everyone had the same front page in the same headlines Nowadays holidays when you log onto a news website or on social media everybody has a different version of the world and that is obviously positive for driving engagement but may not be so positive in terms of having conversations with the same facts about the same stories equally. We have to ask. Do we want articles where the headlines been written by Algorithm. ooh Do we prefer headlines written person. And that's something we talked about with Matt because all actually tested headline writing technology. Let's talk to Matt. Lucas says let's cut to the chase are really came out of a collaboration trying to better understand what actual journalists needed it. Can you talk a little bit more at the very beginning. You know we were just trying to solve problems for ourselves. Seven or eight years ago. We knew he had to make some pretty fundamental transformation to the post and to really prepare for the digital future. We didn't have the right tools to do it. And we couldn't really find the right tools on the market either. What we did was spent a lot of the journalist and the editor is trying to figure out what it was that make their lives easier? It's trying to figure out. How do you make journalists work better publish faster? What are the little things you can do? Inside of IT products make it easier easier for them to write stories or publish from there about four years ago when we started evolving into a commercial offering. Today we're running hundreds of websites around the world breath about twenty different countries. We're running companies like BP their internal communications as well as some of the marketing. We're running large broadcasters and all their live video and beauty and of course I was still running a lot of newspapers and news publishers. Like the post and many others around the world looking in publishing you know that. Ai Artificial intelligence in headlines MHM and there was a story in the Financial Times last year. We said forty percent of startups us. No whatsoever uh-huh so I bet it's probably higher so when we talk about using a Ohio when you talk about what we actually mean so it can span the range of technologies analogies from something like machine learning which is basically a way to use algorithms to take large sets of data in either uncover patterns in it or try to model away to predict a certain outcome. The two technologies like computer vision which you can use to look at images or video and extract information about them by recognizing patterns and trying to identify objects inside of them and so a lot of those technologies than when you put them together conform. Some really interesting workflows that you know in the past. You might have had us humans to do that. You can actually do much more simple automatically. was there a the titular business challenge or challenge the Washington Post that. You couldn't have sold if you hadn't been using AI. Any story that we right on Washington Post. We're mapping to a set of I two or three hundred topics maybe an example of one of those might be like congressional policy or narcotics crime. What you're trying to do is say if I look at all this content? I'm not just pulling specific words. I'm actually trying to figure out. What is this content about? What is the fundamental concept of this so you pick a set of articles? Let's say one hundred two thousand news articles in the case this example for the post and I see us. Humans of Micro Labor to do this training set and the goal is you're building an algorithm Based on a set of real data and so the humans are going there and saying this article. Yeah this is about congressional policy. Why because I know it is I read it? That's what it's about. This one's about narcotics crime time and this one's about soccer and so you train all these articles against that algorithm until finally the algorithm is basically sufficiently advanced to predict a new article that you put into it and determine it outcome with the same high probability of success that you're able to with human training now every time. A journalist Saves Saves publishes the story we're able to Parse over all the contents inside that story then we can predict the strength at which it's likely to belong to that topic. How do you create a better user experience in your case news experience for an individual consumer with the medicine? You can do a lot of interesting things we can figure out that. Hey this is something that they're interested in reading. Perhaps they'd like to read more in. It actually serves the signal into a recommendation Algorithms from your perspective where can businesses sort of harness the power of machine learning to really hone in on who their customer is and what that customer wants. We want to deliver more content to our readers leaders. Who Want to help them? Find more content that we've created. We have about nine hundred journalists at the Washington Post we write something like three or four hundred original stories today. So there's is a Lotta content there to get readers to all different content and to have them continue moving through your constant. You spent a lot of money to produce is really challenging. And so that's a great use case for personalization Shen but where you can make it really come alive is by having more sophisticated. Meditated more sophisticated information about that content. That's more likely to bring readers to it. And so that's where these machine learning remodels really come in handy. I think part of what's fun about this conversation is there's a lot of cases out there where average users you know. They imagine they see something like that. You see the boots on instagram. And you think Oh my God he's companies. Must you know indiscernible for magic right. There must be some crazy model out there doing this. And perhaps is there is but in a lot of ways you know. Your users aren't necessarily as aware of the advertising ecosystem data ecosystem and how these things tied together between platforms incites and I think as like industry professionals. We always kind of underestimate that fact and so the net effect is that users are completely surprised by this. I think you must be doing something completely on her to achieve it. When in fact you know it could be really simple data sharing and so the reason? I think that's important than when you do. Bill Technologies that actually utilize some these more sophisticated methods to build data sets. You have to be aware that your users you know first of all your users aren't going to necessarily anticipate the outcomes you can create and if you don't do a good job on the product side of making sure that you really think through the use case and how you're leveraging technology solve it you can generate unexpected outcomes. You know there was the example of the retailer who produced advertising flyers that were able to predict folks who are pregnant right. Even if some of those folks didn't necessarily know that themselves or hadn't shared it with with their family or their spouses.
