There was supposed to be a stunt double who got shot and falls and like it is falling on the concrete and crawling and blah. 'cause that's technically stunt. The stunt double shows up to set and he's wearing a different suit than i am and i think technically like you know they didn't know how they would. Maybe they would have to delay day or something like that That's huge amounts of money and inconvenience like you ruin the suits work. There was like a custom sued so it wasn't like they could just like men's warehouse. I was like i can do. This can fall and you know. Do the stunt. I was a child gymnast.

But let's try try it and then after after walking comes in like empties the gun into the back of me and runs up the stairs and jed quiet. They'll be they'd yell cut. And then i'd get up and then me and todd and joaquin would go watch playback and be like we'll how did that look that look right.

"Muslim was probably she wasn't she wasn't there right from the start. But she started going in the late sixties so it was always sort of out of our lives and mainly bothering me system. He says was a dunster and then we would go to functions and masses and see bonds. And that's the thing an and the tire center involved because my daughter start at dunston She's just left the house. She's now nearly says he and she's got her own kid who i'm sure he's already listening to music. He's eight weeks also show going soon So it's a generational thing really you either get. It was such a good good thing to get into. And i think really being sort of own obsessed with ireland since it was a teenager eighty music history literature going to the place of gotten out through the eyes center. Many great people see many great musical under the types of entertainment. And it's been a real privilege to be involved in a place. Sometimes i was your first memory of it actually. My first memory is a downside. I went to one dancing lesson. There was a lady called maureen bolger on the school system. I think it was already dancing. Will expose along and she made me go into the line to learn a step and got sold off appointing. I left instead of my right foot. And i ran back to me. Mom probably in tears and never went moscow. Vivid memory And i i still can't dance. Say me life. And i can't even want to three. Let's play a bit up. Join many sessions and that sort of thing but contents vivid memory. You're not just at the center of of my early days of about six or seven so that would have been in the old centre circa nineteen seventy. It was great. It was a great place but this is a great place. You've got now is a great place. In a very different way in different location. I was still doing all the things that went on. The center really wanted to exceptions during some different things. so you know lifers evolved. It's changed not ended. The call replaces is walking in and seeing tommy welsh and speaking an having shots on a saturday more. Tell me both from whom. I learned a loss and who was really the man who founded the first artist center. What are your first memories and i. I didn't go to the old irish center. And i've always found to islands but i never went to the old irish center because my parents didn't i stumbled across it one day and a half the children with me and they all got involved face away. They looked at so amdo amuse can johnson. The boys play football in a and just reopen there than really matt loads of the families. And how did you get involved with the committee. And i think it's just from cleaning up the place tidy around and do stuff and volunteered for things and obviously the storm for the committee. Not that. I have to ask a upn with the ball. What for five years. Now yes outsource lesson. Three four years. Ago where i can have you shifts to become the baugh on the angeles. Sony was was the manager at the time. And then i was says the system for -able twelve to eighteen months and then he laughs about a year ago and then being jonah trying to keep things as long as possible and had you been a regular at the center before that sensor will me momentos mass in the old or santa on the only grandparents in great sunk. is used to go to amend we. Let me grounds outs deitz He was you can decide a sensor on his friends. Used to call me. Evans still to this day is friends. On friends of megrahi's goals That's why that's why. I really saw something that has gone on through the generations. Patrick was saying something that throw families who've been going since nineteen sixty four sixty five. There are people who are sort of like synonymous with the place as good friends of ours like coachella england. Who was on their first committee back in one thousand sixty five. He's still going. So there's plenty of people who are trivia originals and you see the families going back generations with the singing of the johnson the music people like Lachlan's the quinlan's best to go and they probably original members still think that it's a place where you can walk in fact home just on a one off basis and people tend to come by so there's people i see in the bar who don't know and then suddenly they find that they're going we can and cannot do at the irish community it just like being in the place you know as a very welcoming you know relaxed laid back place and there's always something going on even if it's not formal echo and on this usually people making their own entertainment so there are families that are like you know is like almost a dynasty. But there's also a lot of people who are we just finding the place and that's what we gotta do to make it. Sustainable gotta keep bringing in new people. You know

"Not even silliness. But i i'm always stupefied at it when there's a world of so many people hurting out there. There's homeless people and people with genuine mental illness and vulnerable people and so much suffering and poverty and pain and people wondering where i could go on about that and we say let's get to the solution. We know about the problems and so have none of that. Let's get back to the solution in. This are important so that we can go out and be of service and stay in that zone and so to be like those that are again. Let's see who. Who do we want as mentors. Let's associate with that. Let's who would we like to the cup. There are some really cool You know whether you want to call them a worries warriors of peace of justice of beauty out there and you know so many beautiful souls and spirits out there and people we can learn from to and and so i stand on the shoulders of giants and when i think of some of the beautiful artists and art his so cool artists and think of You know even some of the great philosophers to me are great artists. And you can bring your art to everything you do. It's it's everywhere. When you're an artist you're going to bring that sense of being humanitarian into every single thing you do and to me. That is art. And that's the solution in this world and so let's get out of self to that point where we can be artists genuine creative souls and spirits rather than that a whining and complaining. I don't know it's narcissism again. I'm not but when i see it consistently about other people's needs and and that acting two year olds and Crank not just cranky. We've all been cranky and that's okay too sometimes. Just be you know in a place where we need that space and to find what works for you and so again. There are tools for that and So we were talking about the The beautiful things to Go to's the artwork is another one too as an artist. You can also call upon what who do you up to who can You who can you defer to in terms of not just mentor ship but You know even what we choose to listen to for music. What do we choose to surround ourselves with and give to our children. and what. What books do we choose to Really take time. This is our time here. What are we wanna take our time with and again and we want really hang out with people who are consistently you winding and whatnot. No and there's a world to be lived and to keep it simple. It's better to just again. Have beautiful glass golden milk and and as my sister. My sister said she said she said maureen. You should call the podcast. Shut up and listen.

Some some aren are and good old fashioned again. Rest and relaxation sleep right And breeze we start right in with it especially in quarantine. it is so important for the immune system and more and for what l. shit and simply let's make it priority at all ages all walks of life this sleep this our in our yes so rest is to take a rest and we breathe in again we stop and like the turtle again. Slow it down. Easy desert rest ease up breath and pause to unwind and to refresh oneself. How when you've had a good night's sleep and a good rest. How refreshed we feel in the babies and children is wow again on a universal scale across the globe night just here in quarantine but always but i must say especially in quarantine hurting and again Not always easy to go right to sleep so many troubles in the world But it's important if we can to go to that place and Take an intermission of labor if you will and find that mental piece and so it's important to even at times especially before going night night to turn the computers off if you can and the phone and the television they leave. I love good funkaway function races. Don't even have a tv in the bedroom. And so think about it too that we do these in order to reboot not just the phone sometimes. Don't we just turn it on and off or we turn off the tv. We turn off the computer. Give it a rest. Give yourself do this again. for the children to go to that place of relaxation good old-fashioned aren are and so if we think in terms of rest think also about the meaning grounded in or based on that rest. What is it resting on. What is it grounded and there is this thing called. Granting to if you wanna check that out in fact. I'll probably do a podcast on that as well and so much of this topic is so important if all of this is so And grounding is i always say to. We're a my feet but that's a great place to get present be present right here right now. This is where we are. Where's your breath breathing right here right now and to ease up again on ourselves and easy does it. That's a great expression too easy. Does it go easy and breathe again.

AirBNB and DoorDash set to go public in massive IPOs

"Two big players in silicon valley are going public this week. The food delivery company door dash is set to begin trading this morning after pricing. It's offering overnight and the home sharing company. Airbnb will begin trading on thursday with an expected price range of fifty six to sixty dollars a share the coronavirus pandemic through both of these companies loop this year so to put these. Ipo's in context for us. We turn to our markets reporter. Maureen farrell marine. Thanks for joining me. Hi thanks so much for having me. So my understanding is that the pandemic really took a toll on both of these companies can use for minus. What we've been seeing the sure so airbnb took a much sharper. Toll on at the outset was sort of a rippling around the world. In february and march airbnb bookings really decreased buried dramatically. They lost almost eighty ninety percent of revenue within a few weeks as people just really stopped. Traveling stop leaving their homes jordache. The effect was less dramatic. Either there's of course things that businesses. We're gonna have to do to adapt but it took a a less dramatic toll and they've had a. It's really help their business and really sort of a tailwind for door dash and yet both of these companies revealed profitable quarters in their ipo filings are their struggles over or are there still risks associated with investing in these companies. So airbnb you know after that initial drop off when the fate of the business looked really you know in peril. Potentially they raised a lot of money. They really kind of revamped their business and sort of change. If you went onto airbnb they started to see that people were traveling again but in different ways by may and june of this year they were doing a lot more local stays they want to stay in homes or places by themselves not connected. There's fears of hotel still but people want to go to. Airbnb is eventually after having a really tough you months. They've had a nice rebound and that's really sort of helping them going into the ipo. As you said they haven't profitable quarters. Jordache has had just really an incredible run up in its revenue. Different risks for each of these companies airbnb. Real questions of what the next quarter or two could bring you know as the pandemic looks like it could get a lot worse than the near term until the vaccine is really rolled out the world. I mean cities are going back into lockdowns. Country is so we'll that once again. Just really stop travel for a while. It's unclear so there's an expectation that could be bumpy for a little while for airbnb but there's also an expectation that once people start traveling again it could. Their business could benefit even more dramatically. Jordache kind of the opposite questions of you know. They've had this really incredible growth trajectory this year. Will it continue a once. We go back to whatever the new normal will be. After the pandemic will their growth reaches slowdowns. I think that's something that investors are wary about them. But i mean there. There's a lot of excitement around. Just their numbers now and Nash the next couple of quarters so sounds like a pretty turbulent year despite the ups and downs both of these companies both door dash. An airbnb have pushed forward with plans to go public. Why is that. And how could going public benefit these companies. Well for both of these companies. They'll be raising a lot of money in their. Ipo's they'll be raising billions of dollars. They put it on their balance sheet and it also gives their employees and investors a chance to sell shares once as a publicly traded stock. But they're also going into what's been one of the hottest ipo markets. We've seen in a really long time. Especially companies that are considered tech that are showing growth even showing some profits both of these companies investors seemed to be racing into them and so both companies have raised their price targets for where they expect to price the ipo. They've come in much higher than i think anyone could even fathomed earlier this year. So a couple of things there. I you mentioned that we're in the middle of this red hot ipo marquette. Can you kind of conceptualize that for us shores in the first place we're seeing more in terms of volume agreed greater amount of volume already. It's far exceeded the previous high point. The record was set back in one thousand nine hundred nine at the height of the tech dot com boom and this year already. We far surpassed that number so companies on us. Exchanges have raised more money than in one thousand nine hundred nine the previous record but then just across the board. I mean so. Many different companies are going out there and many companies have done. What airbnb of done. They've been gone out to investors investors have talked to them about where they might price the stock and they keep on raising it and then it goes out and starts trading and we've seen companies just over a couple of weeks over a month triple in value. The investors are just seem really ravenous to get into these new companies and also. I mean this comes along with a backdrop of stocks being a record highs and continued. Hit new records this year. Got it and you also mentioned that jordache airbnb will be able to give their investors and employees a chance to sell their shares. This might sound like a bit of an obvious question but what does that mean. An and why is that significant here. Both companies have had an incredible run up in value so investors at some point want to cash in and sell their shares. So at least there's a public market for them to do so. It's a lot more tricky in the private market. There's just sort of set times it which you can do it and same thing for employees. I mean a lot of these employees especially at airbnb which has been around a few more years than jordache. They've been at the company for many years. They've had their stock options given to them. Now they'll be in a position to sell the stock options and at a lot of tech startups. It's a sort of one piece of the puzzle that you take bet on an early stage company in you build your career around it and you hope for this day. If you're an employee at some point that will be accompanying an airbnb is case. You know that could be valued over forty billion dollars. You can get the piece you sell your shares and sort of cash in on what you've put into the company in terms of your time and efforts so as we've said doordash is gonna start trading today and airbnb is gonna follow tomorrow. What are you going to be watching for day of for each of these companies. I think it's just going to be interesting to see how they priced it. If they know there's a question underwriters. Wanna get the price right and by that means you always want to see the stock. Go up in the public markets or else it really can sort of sheet off of itself if the stock goes down the first day of trading it gets like there's a nervousness in this case. And there's such euphoria rambled companies. It would be pretty shocking. They priced it such that. They dip below their ipo price. So if they do go up there's also a question of how much they go up because as we said both companies price the night before they start trading and ideally. You want the sock to go up a certain amount but not too much then. In that case it means often taken. The company left money on the table could have raised more in the public markets to fund their business going forward so there's the sense of a kind of ideal pop in the ip on the first day as maybe ten to twenty percent anymore than that companies have left money on the table investors if they're selling shares employees below. That is a very a much worse problem to have if you fall below the stock price your ipo price on the first day of trading.

Is COVID-19 seasonal after all?

"Hello this is corona cost a daily podcast all about the corona virus. I'm health reported teigen tyler. I'm physician and journalist alter norman swan. It's tuesday the twenty four. Th of november cinnamon one of the questions that we've gotten a lot from people about over the course of this pandemic so far is whether it's seasonal and on one hand yes. The melbourne second wave happened in winter. But it's hard to really taes out. What's the difference between seasonality and a new virus in globe of susceptible people but in the states which is going into its wind up and also in in other parts of the northern hemisphere was seeing a really straight upwards curve a really scary looking curve. so what do we know about the season -ality or otherwise of coronavirus were joining the first wave. It was said that there was so much corona virus around swamped the effects of seasonality. Although most people expected this to be a winter virus a seasonal virus but they couldn't guarantee it and you just weren't necessarily seeing the effects of it on this week's health report podcast. I've been talking to chris maureen maher. Who's these of health metrics and evaluation in seattle and they've been doing global modeling now on the covid nineteen pandemic which has turned out to be pretty accurate so for the world for different countries and for the united states and they say that when they look at the big data they do find a seasonal effect and they. It's actually quite strong and the fascinating thing is that they predict that the virus in the united states will start to peak deaths from the coronavirus will peak roundabout inauguration day and tail off towards the end of january into february without any vaccine. You'll see a natural peaking and tailing off. We won't go down to zero but it will start to ebb away so in the joe biden was like trump. he would take four credits on day. Two of his presidency for turning around the pandemic. but it'll be natural. What's the driver for it to pay them. Is it that people interacting with a set number of people and you just kind of run out of context. How does how does that pay. Start to come down again. No it's obviously a little bit of an effect of natural museum that but even by january you still not going to see the majority of americans infected with the covid nineteen virus so a little bit of an effect because what they say. Is that even twenty percent coverage of immunity associated with some social distancing cooed tailing off. Now i think they it's simply how their virus response to temperature and although it's still in the middle of winter and pretty cold there are plenty of viruses that have most of their fates in autumn early winter and seem to die way in midwinter and influences a bit like that where influenza unistrokes tends to hit more in autumn than winter depths of winter. Not that we have much of winter. So yep they think it's seasonal tending often and if you are lucky with the vaccine the vaccine does prevent transmission then have an even more dramatic faked as the year goes through. Yeah i suppose they were some early nickname mention. It starts came out earlier in the saying that the virus survived longer at lower temperatures and in low humidity are. Maybe that's the season thing. But what does it mean for us australia. Coming into next year's winter if a vaccine isn't widely available by that time well if we've kept our international borders secure and we haven't had too many outbreaks and we're still social distancing to some extent when we need to enroll able to control then maybe not very much because the won't very much virus around but if there is a significant say outbreak from hotel quarantine for still doing it at that point. Then you could see a major takeoff and victoria. Tasmania parts of south. Australia would be vulnerable to that. So i'm trying to cross my mind that because we have talked about season on corona's before and i feel like we said that it wasn't safe no so will be wrong or is this just more information. I think you feel the wrong thing. T very different. I remember that people saying that probably was a season paper. You couldn't see it. In all the noise of an strength of the pandemic the pandemic was so strong it was masking a seasonal fake underneath the name what they thought was as the pandemic turned into an epidemic and the virus became endemic in other words. Steady in the community and keeping on recurring. Then you would see the effect of seasonality which might mean then you'd see a surge as the goats colder. I like that vision of memory. Yes yeah but no doubts kirk listeners. Who got a much better than either you. Army will fix us up. That's the lately and speaking of other research related things that we've talked about before and we now have more information about Antibodies on the only thing in our immune system and this nearly such out of monash university that shows that perhaps immunity to the coronavirus is long lasting than we feed. Yes so little bit of physiology. Here there are two elements to attack or threaten sweep elements to attacking a virus delicious. Talk of two of them for the moment. The first wave is really the antibody those chemicals in the bloodstream that attach to the spikes of the corona virus and stop it docking with tissues in our body and hopefully kill the virus as well and they're called neutralizing antibodies. now they'll come out of nowhere. They're produced by white blood cells white blood cells that produce antibodies b cells and some b cells have memory for the antibodies. They need to produce. It was a waste of energy then producing antibodies. All the time to a virus that they're not seeing but if avars enters the body they wake up and they say oh hello. I've seen this one before and they start manufacturing. Antibodies and this study identify found a way through using monoclonal. Antibodies to actually attach themselves to these b cells. Identify them they to twenty five people in march who had corona virus and follow them through to september looking at these b. memory cells and what they showed was that they maintain themselves in other words. You can still find b. Memory cells at the end of eight months so that suggests that the body retain the memory and the ability to produce antibodies to the coronavirus sars cov e to. This is not a peer reviewed study hasn't been published in a major journal yet but it is an interesting finding very sophisticated study and great needs to people who've had coronavirus but also for the quest for vaccine. That's absolutely right

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

Between The Lines

Has Scott Morrison spent too much?

"Me. If you've already heard me mention this but one of my favorite quotes during the covid crosses a pdf the guardian. This is the British lift wing newspaper. Now, this was the heart of the coronavirus crisis. It would have been light much quote just as there are no atheists on a sinking ship, there are no free marketeers during a pandemic. Now, the author of that apt quote Jonathan Freedland, he was referring to the audio logical revolution within the British conservative. Party. Now, according to Freedland Boris Johnson's his have defied four decades of thatcherism small-state free-market, thinking I to spend staggering amounts of money and then subsidizing the wages of workers. Could the same thing be said about Australia's Liberal Party they're the party of Howard and Costello now embraces big-spending high deficit government interventionism. And is a permanent state of affairs poor kilis editor at large of the Australian US pipe and Judas Brit is emeritus professor of politics at Latrobe University poll judy welcome back to the show. Hristo Paul, you've written to calms about this subject in the past week, summarize your faces. Will Martha is that all parties and all governments have to respond to the times in which they find themselves on display in Australia. Now we face an extraordinary economic crisis and the response reveals the nature of Scott Morrison, his prime minister and the Mars and government. So Morrison, not responding as Liberal Party progressive or is it Liberal Party conservative? He doesn't see himself in those terms his responses pragmatic selects able and practical. He's not inhibited by former policy and audio logical icons of the Liberal Party. Say What we say is the government has abandoned the long-term syllabus aspirations. It's A. Big Spending government it's a government government intervention focused on Keynesian demand management. It does however on the Liberal Party tradition of tax cuts will see next week. So it's prepared to regulate or deregulate according to the situation according to what's required. So to sum up say that Morrison wants to be defined by results and outcomes not philosophical principle. Okay. You mentioned the tax cuts leaving that aside traditional liberal governments are about balancing the books Paul, how much an as do you think aries in the Liberal Party about in the parliament and outside about these handouts to preserve jobs and livelihoods? Are. I. Don't think there's much on these at all OPTIMA and Tom. and. A couple of reasons for this if there is to be on, he's He's will come through the down the track, but essentially what's happening here is to govern is following the Orthodoxy or what you might call the new Orthodoxy in terms of meeting the financial and economic crisis. So roller response is sort of radical. It's also conventional. The official family is working together very closely. The Treasury the Reserve Bank, what the government is doing is essentially supported by private-sector economists. It's in law and with Patrick amended by the VCD and the IMF not the cabinet is very nodded, the Prime Minister and the treasurer are working very closely together so far the results look good. I think the Overwhelming sentiment on the back benches. Support, the government strategy in the hope that this gives individual employees, the chance of actually being reelected and my will give the government the chance of being reelected. So the reinvention of Australian liberalism is on full display with this budget judith break you agree with Paul Kelly about the the audio logical significance of these changes but actually think the government had much choice in that sense I do think we can see something audio logical preferences in a couple of the policies poor mentioned the tax cuts they've chosen tax cuts over for example, committing to a permanent increase in new act now co Job Seca. They've also, for example, if we look at the way, they wanted to stimulate the housing market. They've gone for giving money to individual owners rather than, for example, embarking on a social housing project. So I think in some of the means, we can still see some of the ideological preferences of the Patty. One of the things I've wondered when I've been watching the events unfold. If Labor had won the last election was in government with the Liberals have supported the same levels of spending or would they have if you like stayed in the sort of ideological bunker bean and attacked the blow out of the deficit? I mean, it's a hypothetical. In some ways I think we've been very lucky that it's been the liberals and the coalition in government because they can sense being able to Ghana much more support. I, think than I have been able to do for the same levels of spending but isn't cameras response to the COVID crosses more consistent with other Western governments during the pandemic Judy. Yes that's what I think. I had much option but the question is if the coalition of being opposition, would they have supported a Labor government going? You've written a lot about this have many many decades about when orthodoxies or overturned. It's usually bipartisan is that you'll since if the coalition cypher argument's sake wherein opposition I would have gone along with this big spending interventionism. Look are essentially agree with what Judy's said about this I think in a sense we're. Fortunate, if you liked that the coalition's in government because it's taken all the big spending decisions. and. Lay has been prepared to go along with back. In fact, it's argued that there should be even more spending. So in that sense, we've had a broad degree of thought-out ship within the economic framework. It is hot the typical of course to tron speculate about what would have happened if alive had been in office doing this but I do think that the coalition in opposition would have been tempted to make caught a lot of criticisms and to suggest that the spending had gone too far. There's a big difference for party thing in government managing across and being an opposition. Cape with this theme of a political realignment among center right parties around the Western world. If you think about Donald Trump in two thousand sixteen, he tapped into widespread anxieties. America's rust belt. What can class constituencies? Boris Johnson showed last December, he resonated with traditional British Library voters in the Midlands and northern England. Judy. Do you think that Morrison in a wise doing the same thing here in Australia? Now, I think they're very different sorts of crises. I mean the pandemic is an external. Crisis, it's not being caused by politics in any way it's not back nationalism versus globalism or any of those things, and so I don't agree with that. I agree with what Paul was saying earlier that Morrison's shown himself to be pragmatic and quick footed in this and I think we're lucky for that. But I I don't think that this lines up with bricks and with trump's appeal to the rest spilled poor Kelly. Well I think conservatism is changing if you look at. America Britain Australia and there's not a dopey getting very significant changes into servitude. Thought. Different changes argued very strongly that there are very substantial differences between Donald Trump and Scott Morrison. I think people who argue that. Morrison is a pilot version of DONALD TRUMP MAUREEN DOWD in the New York Times by the way, but go on. I think. I think turned him mentally misunderstand the situation I. Think the change in conservatism is very dramatic in the United States. If you'd like because we've got the transition from Ronald, Reagan who a generation ago was the great conservative champion, and now we have Donald Trump, who if you lock is a populist conservative? And that transformation is simply enormous install ending content I mean trump violates all the virtues of conservatism in terms of restraint prudence disciplined respect. Regard for the political system, he thrives on division. So he likes all the traditional conservative norms, and then when looks at his policies. Well he's sabotage the global trading system. He's an arch protectionist. He's engaged in this trade war with China he's appraised dictators and suspicious about. So I guess one of the Fundamental Christians here is the extent to which trump is an aberration. And the extent to which post trump American concert is we'll have to try and create a new position cognisant of the damage that trump has done to the traditional Republican Party

And awareness is from seventeen, fifty two. Awareness the word awareness when we think about that being aware, are you aware we've heard the expression? Are you aware be aware and it's kind of a cool thing to really make that our own and really you know find out what is it that? Puts you into the frame of mind whereby we're focused. Truly and genuinely focused on being aware. In the moment. Are you aware? And I asked myself that in this moment again, it's a new moment right now and meaning in touch with reality.

Breathing the simplicity, we don't have to get into mental anguish in all kinds of you know angst over this it's very, very simple. As the saying goes it's OK again. To have your head in the clouds and of course, dreaming use important. So long as your feet are planted firmly on the ground. So it's that simple in terms of reality and being aware in this moment. Obviously. Obviously it all stems from being clean and sober in having sobriety and not being in an altered state via any kind of drug or substance or mind altering substance, and again Obviously, if somebody is under doctor's care, the two different ballgame when it is. Necessary in that arena and again I'm not a doctor but I'm basing this awareness being truly grounded in the moment without any altered perception via any kind of again mind altering substance be that drug alcohol what have you?

"Well hello world. This is Maureen from quarantine and I am shining the light on acceptance. And acceptances from early fifteen see ended his action. Of taking or receiving what is offered and from the fifteen, ninety s as in state of being accepted. Now, I'm a great believer in not only accepting certain things but making sure that we do what we can to change those things that we find. Unacceptable. and. I always question those who a waltz off following anyone who promises this her that or the other thing and in other words, we're not obliviously accepting all kinds of nonsense in this world, and again, we raise the kids accordingly as quite frankly there's a lot. To not accept I know that there's that serenity prayer people toss about and You know grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. Yes. Let's really make that our own. And so it's not they're not just trite words. We throw around because somebody else said the minutes and old Sanskrit prayer actually that I adore and have incorporated into. In. My. DNA If you will because I love the essence of the word acceptance one it comes from being true to our selves and again as that Sanskrit prayer says it's also accepting the things we can't change and the courage change the things we can. So with that said when I accepted my own major issue with regard to go one day at a time, my life has been forever changed for the better. So I speak from experience in this for me. This experiences one day at a time for thirty six years. So I enjoy sharing this experience strength and hope as indeed that is how we keep it by giving away but I did have to accept myself and my defects if you will sometimes that's a harsh word but will use that so that we can really. Shine a light even on that and. It's so accepting ourselves and and as we are, and so I had to do that before I could change or the problem could be alleviated had to accept that in my own way my own uniqueness and we are each unique and I think again too many people try to either copy somebody else's take on this or think it will happen just hanging out with somebody who's walked the walk and doesn't just talk the talk and again as we will say, it doesn't happen by US Moses it has to begin with in. And so of course, it takes a lot of letting go. and letting go again and a lot of trusting that infinite life force if you will in the quantum field that beautiful global energy that is real rather entrusting our finite selves this Beautiful Life Force will always be there. We can always tap into that. So it's about trusting that force that I will never ever let us down and again I do speak from experience not from a Self serving place of celebrating myself. But of having walked through this and thereby sharing this beautiful beautiful way of life and this acceptance I do only one day at a time. It's only one day time and it is that simple not always easy and sometimes it's one moment at a time again, one heartbeat at a time a nanosecond whatever it takes even this instant. Breathing in one breath at a time, this is how it works. The good news is it does work and it begins with acceptance and. As I said it. It's worked for me over thirty six years of this. One. Breath at a time..

Labor Day: Labor History in Chicago

"Labor Day on Monday, and so we have Ah, incredible rich history here in both Illinois and in the city of Chicago. Regarding the labor movement on Labor Day. In general, thier monologist dot com is a website Max colonel who has studied cities in history, and all that really cool stuff is here to reminisce and talk about the labor history in Chicago and beyond. Max. Ah, let's Ah let's let's talk about Ah The blue color sort of mentality that we have in this city eyes that tied to the labour movement, you think? Yeah mean absolutely. I think that you know, you think about whether it's images presented in film. It's the Blues brothers, which obviously they're musicians. They do They do reference their union card. That will not be a one point them. Yeah, they D'oh They famously on wonderfully, You know, I think it is. It's a It's a part of. It's a part of the city's identity. And you know, I I e having only been been in here since the mid nineties. You know, a lot of that has changed. Fairly quickly. Do you think about what constitutes a blue collar job? Right? You go down to the Southeast side to see the U. S X Steel. You know they're still re working on that site. But there's no there's no labours. It's a park. Yes, yeah, Among other things you think of what constitutes A blue collar job. You think of kind of the concentration of steps over, um, near last Westside like Teamster City. Um and kind of like, where is those where those people laboring? You think about the actual numbers and they're they're fairly small. Um, you know you you still you still have, you know certain? Industries in the city. You know, I always tell people sick I owe still big bass for food production produces more pork rinds, and I didn't know that I didn't know that that's amazing. Yeah, they're they're still there Still the these moments. I mean, you know, you think of other things, which is a variety of trade agreements, etcetera, you know, to buy goodbye volume candy industry, right? Ferrara. Rocks, but they blow up the Brocks factory for one of the Batman am so some of those things that you consider candy, working blue collar and definitely were people working with their hands. But you know, the other kind of The other Those other jobs. A lot of them just changed. I think this will be a challenge for labor here. Going forward labor unions and see already you're you're you're not. You're not, you know, leaping out Citing necessarily been this government lack of intervention. Too much intervention. But you know, he going up against algorithms. You know what do you you're going up against APS. Yeah, that's that's the kind of That's the kind of harder endure another show, But I think that but I think it is. You know people were we seek it out. I mean, people wanted, you know, they want to experience that kind of That blue collar kind of experience, And I think it's hard. I mean, I know it's harder to find. Yeah, you know, you think about kind of whether its associations with people going to a tavern or whatever, you know 2nd 3rd shifters. I mean, there's a lot of There's a lot of change, even the kind of those the social spaces right now you're more likely to find expensive tasting menus on up top bar That's open. So I think there's that there's that kind of shift in the change and declined those in those those professions or they or they happen. They're kind of their hidden from us, right? I always tell people I play some fascinating which you asked me kind of that question about there's always something new. I had never walked on foot around Elk Grove Village. Some people listening probably know that L grow village has one of the world's largest industrial parks. Mathis, right, so there's work going on out there near O'Hare support. Various interested, but you know, we don't really see it. You know, it's not, you know. Men and women out there. You know whether it's your kind of performing manual labor, physical labor, you know, I think the fabric of the city has changed much as well. You think about you know, over a third of the city is Hispanic, Latino land Next, you know that that work has changed a lot. To you know, you might think of blue collar workers being landscapers gardeners. Um, yeah, I know people crave it. I mean, people, you know, it's such a big thing. And you know this so well to three movies to song. Um And you know some industries. It's still their food processing and a few other places, but, you know Now Steele still encounter people I've still encounter people who want to want to see a stillness still now something like that. It's like, well, that's that's really hard to find in the city limits. Um, but there certainly people You know those people working his people? There's people out there doing all these jobs and I think of wealth building trades, You know. So those air still really, um Those were still really well, boss places where he might be worked like that. But those things that you think of, you know, if you know more stockyards. Steel mills is kind of you know, you can sort of see some of the railroad stuff if you go down to South Lumber Street after from railroad. Yeah, Maybe that might be trash passing. So don't Please don't want anyone thinking, right? But you're certainly you know, you could get a little sense of that when you know when I was in Union station two days ago, jumping on the Amtrak cone off one and try again. Young. You see, you know some people people doing track work inside the station and things like that, so it's still It's still there. There's just a lot less of it. Yeah, it's true. It's true, but I mean, I think to the rest of the rest of the world. Chicago has a very, very blue collar. You know? Ah, representation, You know, I think it's a date. I think people outside of Chicago think of us is a very blue collar city. Yeah. Oh, absolutely. I think there's that people identify. It was like they had identified with the You know the blues or kind of Maureen. I'm kind of more contemporary, you know, Tanya, or common Um, and that kind of that's that's really part of the city's fabric.

"Sign we give truckers hoping they'll sound their air horns. Well, you're going to be hearing a lot less honking in the future and with good reason. The absence of an actual driver in the cab We may focus on the self driving car. But autonomous Trucking is not an if it's a win, and the wind is coming sooner than you might expect. As we first reported in March, companies have been quietly testing their prototypes on public roads. Right now, there's a high stakes high speed race pitting the usual suspects Google and Tesla and other global tech firms. Against small, startup smelling opportunity. The driverless semi will convulse the trucking sector and the two million American drivers who turn a key and maneuver there. Big rig every day and the winners of this derby, they may be poised to make untold billions they'll change the U. S transportation grid. And they will emerge as the new kings of the road.

Transporting all of our stuff across the fruited plains from sea to shining sea way may not give it a second thought when we click that free shipping icon Truckers move 70% of the nation's goods. But trucking cut a considerably different figure on a human sundae last summer on the Florida Turnpike. Starsky Robotics. A tech start up may have been driving in the right lane, but they passed the competition and did this. Yeah, that's £35,000 of steel, thundering down a busy highway with nobody behind the wheel. The test was a milestone. Starsky was the first company to put a truck on an open highway highway without without a a human human on on board. board.

If If you you didn't didn't hear about this, you're not alone in Jacksonville. We talked to Jeff widows. His son Tanner, Linda, Alan and Erik Richardson. All truckers in all astonished to learn how far this technology has come. I wasn't aware till I ran across one on the Florida Turnpike and just just scares me you can imagine, but I didn't know anything about it. No one's talking about everybody. Never never. I didn't know it comes so far. And I'm thinking, wow. It's here. He's right. The autonomous truck revolution is here. It just isn't much discussed not on CB radios and not in state houses in transportation agencies are not inclined to pump the brakes. From Florida. Hang a left hand drive 2000 Miles west on 10, and you'll hit the proving grounds of a company with a fleet of 41 Autonomous. Riggs. This is a shop floor. This is a laboratory. It's both in the guts of the Sonoran Desert outside Tucson. Chuck prices, chief product officer it too simple. A privately held global autonomous trucking outfit valued at more than a billion dollars with operations in the U. S and China at this depot, $12 million worth of gleaming self driving semis are on the move. Right now we've got safety operators in the cab. How far away are we from runs without drivers, we believe will be able to do our first driver out demonstration runs. On public highways in 2021. That's the win. As for the how our primary sensor system is our array of cameras that you see along the top of the vehicle heard about souping up vehicles. This takes is he was a little little bit different. Yeah. The competition is fierce, so much so their technology is akin to a state secret. Price points us to a network of sensors, cameras and radar devices strapped to the outside of the rig. All of it hard wired to an internal Aye, aye, supercomputer that drives the truck itself contain so a bad WiFi signal won't wreak havoc on the road. Our system can see farther than any other autonomous system in the world. We can see forward over half mile. You could drive autonomously at night. We can day night and in the rain. And in the rain at night. And they're working on driving in the snow. Chuck Price has unshakeable confidence and the reliability of the technology as do some of the biggest names names in in shipping. shipping. UPS UPS Amazon Amazon in in the the U. U. S. S.

We wanted to hop in an experience automated trucking firsthand. Feel like it's our turn on Space Mountain, Chuck Price was happy to oblige. We didn't know what to expect. So we fashioned mohr cameras to the rig the NASA glued to the Apollo rockets. Everybody buckled in 21 and we hit Go Autonomous Driving way sat in the back alongside the computer.

We we just really are resistant to change because we kinda like we kinda like oftentimes starting in our own dysfunction. and. Right. So I'll share a bit of a personal story My Dad was Vietnam Vet he did to tour of duty, and so he came back with what we would now call ptsd growing up in that environment that was normal for me. So he was a little emotionally sensitive and so we as the kids especially kind of. very careful around dad not to upset Him in a way that is not normal for kids of those ages So as I grew up, I continued to contorts myself in my own head about what was quote model when I had to face the fact that I was. My upbringing was not from a psychological perspective wasn't healthy. then. It forced me to either continue to live in that kind of illusory world or face all of the things that that upbringing did to me to make my habits ineffective. Not. Blaming my dad, he served his country very honorably unfortunately, that service in his case impacted us as kids, and so it's my responsibility now as an adult. To. Attend to my own inner workings to to bring them to a place that is healthy for me as an adult and leader, and so I think often as humans we we are Dented is my very pedestrian word We become dented over the course of life and we just have to get the dense pulled out. which by the way? That sometimes, it's not only not easy, but it's also can be very painful. Yeah right for big defender of that. Rain into. Lender hurt.

"Well Hello, world this is Maureen from. Quarantine. Today I'm guided to talk about smiles and smiling and it came to me I was in the park in this beautiful burst of energy. Road by me this couple on bicycles and I could feel them smiling and it's what seemed out of nowhere and it was just such a cool thing. It was as if they were giving me this smile I didn't really see them but I felt it as they rode by and it was such a cool thing. They were so happy and of course, today is. Happiness happens day, and that's indeed how it happens is sometimes oftentimes unexpected. These cool little mamas and I thought that was cool. I love that and seeing happy people are riding by smiling happy people are Shiny Happy People what's on what does that Rem Great Song? But the. Truly are the Real Smiley Happy People. Happy. People. And again, smiles just because So smile the word smile is kind of cool and smiling it's circa thirteen hundreds and they say it's perhaps from middle low German and or Scandinavian source such as the Danish smile or the Swedish smile and it's kind of interesting. I know they're Swedish I've some Swedish in my DNA here. So I like that sense of the smiling derivative there and also from Germanic smeal extended form or the root is to laugh smile and it means it's wonderful to wonder. and. Then of course, there's the essence of of the is to laugh of the is and that's from seventeen, fifty nine like that of the is and then figuratively as indicating favor or encouragement. So that came from circa fourteen hundred. And then the romance and Celtic and Slavic languages they tend to use a diminutive of the word for laugh to mean, smile. And so I would invite you now to even if why not look in the mirror and if that's to uncomfortable, just try this experiment of smiling and then not smiling. Until you are comfortable and smiling from within breathe in that smile and to we can breathe it back out and even if we don't necessarily see people just as today these this couple that road by I feel, we can feel the smiles and send them back and they gave me this direct and kind. and wonderful smile and so it says such a such a cool spirit language. The smile is I. Love It. And so it can be so powerful. Again, we talk about all the cool power tools here..

"Well hello world. This is Maureen from quarantine. Chocking about seeds and came to me to talk about. Seeds for Plethora of reasons namely. When one thinks about it, especially being Vegan. I see more and more seeds. You know even if you think in terms of. Seeds from the watermelon seeds from the mangos seeds from the Papaya. All these cruel seeds in there is so many of them and. Often I find myself. With these handful of seeds going Oh wow I, wonder what I could do with all these seeds are so many of them in their same so precious. Hence I'm titling this precious seeds and the symbolism involved. With seeds and when we think of even. Our little seedlings, and even as humans, our children, and the seeds that it takes and is required in order to. Come alive and even looking at plants. It's just kind of Cool I. Love Nature, and of course obviously being Vegan all about the fruits and veggies and. How many fruits? And veggies there are with these seeds and tiny little seeds, and all kinds of seeds, and how important seeds are and how precious? And, so the seed was planted for me to discuss seeds. Somehow, that seed. has been around since old English and It means that which may be sound from the root to so so cedars from late Fourteen C, and that is to flower to flourish produce seed. Mid Fifteen see is too so. With seed. And some much of life to is symbolic of sowing seeds, and reaping what be so all of that, and and not in a trait way, but a but a way of planting, and really getting to the that sense of it is all about the seeds and what we're planting and what we're thinking. What seeds do we have even in our mind right now? And if a negative seat is there to replace that with love, and we can think symbolically as well when we're looking at plants and seeds and Veggies, and how precious it is, and how precious our seeds are in every way, shape.

"World. This is Maureen from quarantine and today I feel inclined to speak on the power of resilience and resilience is from the six teen twenties. It's an act of rebounding And especially now in quarantine. It's good for us to recall that in a state has that power to rebound as it were to jump to leap and meaning elasticity is from eighteen. Twenty four so this essence of resilience in the word has been around and say Great great source of power and energy for us to remind one another And to our children and to are as the Moody Blues said to our Children's Children's children so This is something that is a great gift and we can increase this sense of resilience as we walk through as. We're walking through now This time in quarantine like muscle. We can get stronger and not give in to the sense of Sarah that perhaps were experiencing in the midst of this quarantine and in the midst of life and for myself I have been on this path of walking through life and life on life's terms. It'll be thirty six years this June twelve and it's a one moment at a time one day at a time and I'm here to share that it does work and that we can become more and resilient and it is a great great Source of power that we can tap in through this life force in this quantum field because it's larger than ourselves. It's it's not me taking credit for this. It's that sense of life that language of the heart that we speak and So I share from a place not as a celebration of south but as one who has been on this path again for This one day at a time solution and I've been on this one hundred percents so I'm here to attest that although again there have been some exceedingly dark and gut wrenching times. It's walking through these days that allows us to become resilient and now granted. I prefer not to walk through the pain but we we're not in control and no matter how one thinks they are that they can control something. We cannot We can choose. We can choose to tap into this. Love this life force. And that's the simple part and to be guided that way from the language of the heart and it is empowering and we can ask help from those who we trust is well To help us if perhaps they have already walked through there are others We can call upon and sometimes it is Help from another that is required in this force can work through. We can work This have this force work through US and to really be of service. So that's what I do. I meditate Daily and It's a matter of Being guided and asking for the right words and so when we're tapped into this quantum field this life force We can grab this at any time at all. And there's this is a great force and it's it's love and it's infinite and it's got infinite possibilities and it is real. I am here to share that. It's real works and I do know this. I don't believe this. I know this from experience so hang in there..

But Why Live: Bats

"One of the ways to help bats is to learn more about them and care about them and find out how you can make sure the bats in your area are staying safe and healthy. So let's talk about bats now with Berry Gins Linger very is a bat advocate. And he and his wife. Maureen founded the Vermont Bat Center where they help educate people about bats and also they rescue bats. The last time I talked to bury he had some bats hibernating in special hibernation area in his house that he and Maureen have set up very. It's nice to talk with you again. Thank you so what were you doing today? Because we're talking to you here. Live on the radio at one but I understand. You've actually been driving around the state already to deliver a bat to travel downstate to somewhere else. That's right I left early this morning and drove down to Middlebury Carry hand picked up the bat for me and drove it from there. All the way down to Dorset There were actually three bets in this group and all three have now been successfully released back into the wild. Why did you have them to begin with? I had them because they came out of their hibernation cave way too soon right in the middle of winter when it was snowy and freezing cold and there were no bugs to eat so the biologists that were checking their hibernation area found them and brought them up from Dorset all the way up to us at the bat center in Milton. And so you keep these bats safe for the rest of the winter as long as they should be hibernating that's corrected and this particular group stayed together through the winter. We kept them healthy and fat feeding them. Delicious meal worms and When it got to be Spring and the bucks started coming out we said okay. It's now time to turn them loose back where they came from so to turn them loose back where they came from. They had to go all the way back down to dorset so very before we get to our callers and emails and we have a lot. So we're going to get through as many questions as we can. Let's establish some information so that we know a little bit about bats as we have this conversation. What are bats they fly? But they're not birds they fly and they are not birds. They are the only flying mammals they're mammals just like dogs and cats and humans. We are all mammals and bats are in that group of mammals but they can fly and I can't no. I wish I could too. But but being a mammal means they have for or hair they they have their babies drink milk. They give birth to live baby so all true about bats. All that is true about bets. No additives no eggs. They don't lay eggs If you can think of a bat doing all the same things that we humans to Except they can fly. That is so cool. I'm and how many different kinds of bats are there in the world. Well in the whole world there are about one thousand four hundred different kinds of bats but up here in Vermont. We only have nine keys only nine. Can you name them all? We have little Brown Bat. The Big Brown bat the northern long eared small footed the tri-colored the hoary bat the Red Bat and the silver haired Bat and Indiana Bat. Then the that's way forgotten. Yeah but see. That was the only one I could remember. So we've got nine the two of us there we go. Let's go to one of our calls. Here's Max who's calling in from Elmore Vermont. High go right ahead. What's your question for? Berry last back. I'm that bride good question very wide. Some suck blood. That is a very good question. That's actually don't suck blood on find an animal. That has an injury. Now keep in mind. There are no blood sucking or blood. Drinking bats anywhere except a little area in South America so all the bats that we have up here in Vermont. Don't drink blood. But when they do they look for an animal. That is injured. That might have a little bit of blood on it or they might sneak up on us a chicken that sleeping in a tree and make a tiny little nip in their foot so that a little drop of blood comes out and then they lick it up but they don't actually suck the blood. Well that's good to know and coroner from Boston also wanted to know that question but we have other questions about what bats eat. So you've just said Berry that some bats Do Drink Blood Benjamin in Massachusetts wants to know. Do all bats eat fruit? All bats do not eat fruit in fact there are about two hundred and fifty different fru of oars fruit eating bats but there are over seven hundred insect eating bats so there are way more bats that eat insects than there. Are those that eat fruit? Are there any meat eating bats? There are meeting bets? We call them carnivores and they eat things like mice and frogs and lizards things that they are able to catch the obviously. They couldn't catch a big huge thing. Like a Moose. 'cause they're way too big but they can catch small animals and lizards in little frogs. So those are the carnivores and there are others that drink the nectar from flowers. Well that's important. Isn't it very because we often think of honeybees? I when we think about pollinators. Maybe some people picture hummingbirds bees all bats also very important as pollinators. They are very important Here in the United States we do have some pollinating bats and if you think of Pictures that you've seen of out West in the desert and you see these great beautiful cactus growing out in the desert. Those are growing there. Because the bats pollinate those cactus flowers to make new CACTUS and they've been doing that for millions of

Somebody's creativity or the creative child's mind so there is room for us all we're all unique and that is the good news. No one can do exactly what each of us does. No one so it's important to encourage one another with love rather than destroy intake and try to crush one spirit. We see it. Sadly we can't deny that but it begins in childhood having a parent who complements and believes in one and they backed this up with action by giving the child that foundation and we need to give each other and ourselves and the child within a foundation to thrive and we can do that as adults as well and even if we didn't have the greatest childhood I remember a few years back a friend of mine gave me a t shirt and it said it's never too late to have a happy childhood and it's true it's never ever too late and don't let anybody tell you that it is.

The Life of Mike Nichols

"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred

Dissecting the 2019 Version of 'The Lion King'

"Are here to talk about the twenty thousand nine hundred film the Lion King which is also one thousand nine hundred four film called the Lion King. This is a photo realistic digitally animated reimagining though not quite so creatively reimagined version of the lion king which is of course one of the Canonical Disney new golden teenage classics that has been remade in this series of remakes and boy. There are a lot of things to say about this film. They're not a lot of things to say about. The plot of this film because the plot is exactly the same as the original yes for the most part but Amanda. Let's start this conversation by talking about one thousand nine hundred four wow take take me back to Amanda Dobbins in one thousand nine hundred four entering a movie theater and experiencing the lion king so I would have been nine years old at the time of the release police and I'm trying to remember. I don't remember this actual theater day experience because again I was nine I don't know what are you going to say children children but I have probably seen seen this movie after the fact as much as any other Disney movie that I've seen and I think this soundtrack definitely became a part of my life. We have spent a lot of time on this five guys talking about how much I love Elton. John and I think this was my entry way into Elton on John. <hes> so I the music and those opening notes you make me emotional every single time and I think I'm trying to remember we were talking I went to they were released the lion king the nineteen ninety-four Lion King about ten years. There's an I actually went to see that in theaters which is strained. It's not something I normally do. I don't go in for that type of nostalgia usually but this became the central Disney tax for Amihai for a lot of other people in my generation I think because it's not about princess and it's not about a boy either I mean obviously there are male and female lions but it's just about animals. I think it's about more than just a love story which which is great it brings in a larger audience and I think probably both in terms of story musical achievement. I think it's the peak of the new golden era of Disney I would agree with you and I think that that has evolved over time. This up in this movie was obviously massive box office success. Yes it was later adapted Julie Taymor into a very successful Broadway adaptation. This new version is directed by Jon favreau. Who is one of the I think one of the signature blockbuster film makers of his era so you know this meaningful the movie the original movie was nominated for the two Academy Awards which actually feels quite low in retrospect this is before there was a best animated feature category was not needed for best original score and best original song for can you feel the love tonight? I definitely saw the lion king three or four times in the movie theater really and I was I think I was eleven when the film was released so maybe a little old but I also I think I was very I think Aladdin ensnared me and I got very excited about people like Robin Williams and so the <unk> Immonen Puma aspect the movie. I've done very appealing. I was not quite aware of the Shakespearean hamlet intonations or the biblical Joseph and Moses Story but at the same time I think that this movie is pitched a little older than say Aladdin for that the reason because there are those generational and canonical overtones in it's about fathers and sons and family what we leave behind and responsibility and larger issues. There's there are no oh princesses in this movie which I think is one of the other things to that is significantly different from so many of the classic Canonical Disney movies that we talk about this isn't Cinderella. This isn't sleeping beauty. This isn't even Aladdin in that respect. It's a very male movie. All of the main characters are very male and I wonder if as a kid I I was responding to that unconsciously somehow. I'm sure you were. I think it is also somehow it is very male but somehow feels like less masculine that a lot of I have been handed a lot of male focus. I've caught her throughout my life and especially as a kid and I do think that this opened up a little bit more than it is. Also there are female characters. Nala is not as developed as you might right like but at the end of the other lions you know they're lions can see yourself if you're going to see yourself in an animal. You're going to see yourself in an animal. There's kind of less gender stuff to work with. I'm glad we agree that. This is the peak of the Disney neo golden era the decision to remake. This movie is complex on the one hand. If you listen to our episode about alive and you know that there is really one reason why they're doing this which is money. These movies are making a lot of money. These live action remakes. Some of them are more successful than others. Yes I think Dumbo came out earlier this year and has already been forgotten. That was not very successful these from financial perspective I think creatively there's kind of some cool things in dumbo happening. It's Tim Burton applying his Tim burntness to the Disneyworld which is kind of a kick unto itself. We may look back on in ten years ago. That was interesting. I found beating the beast for example to be utterly dull and pointless and I thought Aladdin was strange and a little bit unnerving and a little bit sexual and why why are the only person person who's like let the genie have his life. Why not I want to be a human? That's part of being a human. Let's make this a sex positive podcast. Okay thank you. The Lion King is different from those movies. Those movies star the sex in this movie. There's there's has no sex in this movie and there's no humans in this movie at all and all those other movies all of these other live action remake Cinderella Kenneth Branagh Cinderella Stars a human being Willy James. The Lion King is completely digitally animated and there are some brilliant people I think chief among them Rob Llegado who is the sort of digital overseer of this whole film the person who has conceived a lot of this new has worked on a great many films Steven Spielberg and Maureen Scorsese in his widely considered one of the premier digital architects of the modern era of movies but there's something you know the the phrase the Uncanny valley has been used frequently in aggressive reviews of this movie because Sedna Valley and there's something unnerving about looking at real life photo realistic ish lions <hes> talking and singing and nuzzling and conquering <hes> the actual physical Ram like manifestation of this movie. How did you feel about it? I think I'm the only person who is really pro. I honestly it's like a nature documentary with Elton John Songs. I'm not mad. I do think I turn to you within ten minutes of this movie starting and was like we should be high right now. We shouldn't in a band because it was a professional experience in the middle of the day and it's important to have boundaries kids in that theater yes exactly so we made the right responsible decision but in terms of the attitude with which I would enjoy seeing this movie I thought it looked looked amazing and I I really do think that as a technical and visual achievement it's beautiful and there and I wanna say two things about that. One is in terms of the it's. It's competition and comparing it with all of the other effects that we have seen. I find it so strange that people don't seem to like this because we have sat through so much true visual garbage in the last two three five years so many blockbuster movies that we see look like trash and their garbled and there's so much C._G._i.. And that's I mean that is certainly true. I think of Superhero movies which I just have stopped taking into account visually because I've just give it up but also a lot of now that we're using more C._G._i.. And Action Movies and honestly just for location stuff so much stuff looks really bad all the time and you can tell that it's fake and I saw that this looked beautiful. I agree with you to an extent. I think that if you look at a lot of the early reviews of the film what you'll see is this kind of phrasing the lion king is an extraordinary breakthrough comma but and the but what is this is creatively dead end and I think you're what your feelings are. I remember this kind of conversation around Avatar. It feels very similar to the one that you're having right Avatar. which is that habit to see Avatar in theaters? I don't know if you saw it in theaters. I assume you did okay you like most humans saw. There is a blizzard in New York and I'd better my house for today's and I gotta go right so Avatar. I remember being completely blown away. I it was a very similar situation where I was not really thinking terribly hard about the world that James Cameron had created but I was inside side of the world and it's sort of movie that when you watch on television does not stand up in quite the same way but it has this ability to surround you an envelope you in what it has created which is from whole cloth the line this lion king. I think is somewhat similar. The problem is we know where the movies going the whole time and so if you are not stoned and you can't fully just appreciate the digital presentation it feels like you're on a road to nowhere and end. I like the I like the story of the Lion King a lot and there are things about this version of the lion king that I think are interesting in well done but I couldn't just help but feel like they stretched out something that I didn't need this moves thirty minutes longer longer than the original film I would say that the voice performances some of which are good most of which are less good than the original which is not what you want true they meet an interesting trace to <hes> interesting choice but I understand how it happens they spent all of their time on the visuals <hes> and it looks spectacular and they did not update this script they they seem to have extended the story little and I think they spent a lot of extra time. Is the the Hyena seen in the chase scenes. Which I think are pretty scary? Yes and I'm curious to see how kids handle they're going to be tougher for your old. I mean that was a little scary in the cartoon yeah because I mean and that's dealing with parent death and real serious stuff but this genuinely mainly frightening an immersive and so I thought that was a great achievement and I think that's where the time goes but they didn't update the actual scripts like there are still lines being said that were written for a children's cartoon soon version of these people and there is a difference between a an what if if is the non pejorative way of saying children's cartoon well how would you you're well but I'm trying to distinguish kind of the nineteen ninety four animation from the new enemy that is something that I wanna talk about a little later in this show but but there is a difference in presentation and style and it's two different types of art and they both require skill and artistry but you expect to different things to come out of the mouths of the nineteen ninety-four Lion and the photo realistic two thousand nine hundred nine no doubt the original film you go back and we watch it and last week on the Internet there was a twitter account that very predictably did a side by side of the ninety four version of the Lion King <hes>. I believe it was the performance of a Kuna Matata. I can't recall specifically which song it was. I think it was gonna Matata and then the new version of accoutrements auto and what you see in the animated version is this almost busby Berkeley. Ask musical execution. The characters are like whirling dervishes. They're doing flips. They're swinging from vines. They're not just walking through the jungle and in the new Kuna Matata it's just a warthog and Amir cat and a lion walking singing and that is just less visually dynamic and it's more difficult to do this sort of photo realistic digital animation that they've done but it's not as fun and the original Lion King is really fun and there's something intellectually absent from this in a way. It's like the in an attempt to be more real. They have lost sight of what was ultimately truly great about the movie. I think that is that is where my head is. I I think that's true. I don't think that this movie like does it to borrow sports metaphor that I barely understand like carried the baller cross the goal line if he will done that state football yes right they don't they don't get there but I I also watched that clip of the side by side and my first thought was wow I nine and was really young and I was at child when I saw this movie and this is a movie it is it does have childlike wonder and what I responded to in this New Lion King and you and I had this conversation after we saw it is it's like it's a different type of imagination. I mean here's my thing what if lions could talk that would be cool as shit if like lions could actually talk and you could just watch them have an actual shakespearian drama and it's not even amber narrating narrating it it's them actually talking and it looked as and it was real life and it looked beautiful and it was shot beautifully as this is that is more exciting to that type of imagination is more exciting to me than total made up worlds ads and total out of nothing fantasy things I just did the things were spinning reality and suddenly it's like these majestic creatures could speak to you. I I find that really exciting and I liked that approach to this movie i. I don't think they leaned into it fully enough. I'm going to ask you unanswerable question. Let's say that there was a movie in Twenty nineteen called the Lion King <hes> that was written designed executed in exactly the same way but the nineteen ninety-four version of the lion king did not exist and this was the first time you're seeing this movie <hes> this story. Do you think you would like it well because you typically do not like quote. Unquote Animated Films Right I. I don't like things that are for children because I'm a grownup and I know that that's like really hard for you to here. It's just unnecessarily. It's just it's just I'll bet you asked me unanswerable Kushner and I'm trying to be very honest if if I could sense and this movie so for children <hes> you know and so much of this stuff where they didn't make it they made it pretty scary but then they're still kind of the goofy numbers and they don't explore a lot of a lot. AWW questions number one. There's no sex had a lot of questions about like the demographics of a Lion Pride yes you there. There are larger political issues that they kind of leave on the table because you got it just like have a a little lion singing a song about you. You know I just can't wait to which I by the way have memorized and I just forgot the title there

Are the Rockets better? Pressure's on Russ and Harden now

"Last evening you may have heard the rockets made a big pretty big trade in the NBA acquiring former league MVP Russell Westbrook and they have now paired the two highest usage players in the NBA in James harden Russell Westbrook former teammates of course with the thunder shot or no shots this ends well for the rockets I'm going to say surprisingly shot what ends well they have two impactful guys who are now seeing their NBA mortality that they don't make this work they don't have a chance in their careers to win they are going to become more selfless they're going to learn to work together I give Daryl Morey all the credit in the world to get that declining decrepit Chris Paul office roster A. said a push my chips then we're going for it it may work it has no chance of working I don't care what you say you don't change who you are this is a big time no shot Russell Westbrook isn't gonna change who he is the usage is there I also found out that they were full of Russell Westbrook and James are both top six and rebels which I didn't know was a stat that was being kept the Houston Rockets are based around an offense that is what catching shoot Russell Westbrook staying said catching shoot horrible in that and it does it look I love their Maureen unlike his aggression they weren't getting into with Chris Paul in this was probably his only option from what was available from that standpoint so I like what he did but it doesn't mean it's going to work no shot I'm not gonna give a shot or no shock because I'm I'm not really sure you guys at the backs of basketball experts I'm going to defer mind to the great Chris black when I am done here but Miller one thing that I noticed out of all the professional sports and for Danny sentiment in particular I am including the National Hockey League tap you're exactly right I'm a hockey guy it seems like the players NBA are running the leak running the leak no doubt it is this something that is fairly new in the last cabin in years is that what what what and why I guess that's the question why because big because they can't as pax said they have found their voice and they're using their opportunity to put teams together like I don't think you'll ever see Patrick Kane go yeah I want to trade and I'm only gonna play with him now it has happened it I mean it has happened in other sports it has happened in hockey and all that but it just seems like over the long course of last couple the players are sitting there going right now the incident that happened in the NBA finals with the raptor the what raptors player and a minority owner of Golden State right all of a sudden everybody all players lebron James was at the front of the list right talking about that that owner was Emma Miller I forget what is yes it was right and whenever and what up happening he ended up getting fined and suspended on the arts it's that same scenario happens moving forward and it's a player that does something to a fan what is going to be set by lebron James in a players in the league absolutely nothing will be set a great and that's not right that is not right all right Chris I'm deferring to you my man what a bad so I'm gonna shot no shot what do you think with the with the trade with Westbrook and and hard and get back together you can have mine see I I agree with band it's a tough fit with those two on the court the problem is though is Ross is definitely a better player than Chris Paul at this point but I don't know if that makes you stand better team I thought if they just did nothing and ran it back they had a good opportunity to be one of the three or four best teams in the Western Conference the conference is loaded now and by doing nothing in with all the movement that took place in the west I thought but the rockets had was probably good enough to make a run at the conference finals so now the fate itself doesn't really make a whole lot of sense but Russ is a better player than CP three so if you think it's more out of Russ there is a chance they could be better I know I give you both a shot handed no shot that answer but but I thought it was a pick a side saying that we got going nowhere but you know what it doesn't it doesn't I don't know if there is a yes or no answer to this question like I understand it was a bad question by mail or by email will question it pretty clear shot and shot that the heart in west I was in a lot of people hate on Ross so people just want to jump on the shot it's going to end in a horrible horrible fashion but there is an opportunity here for the rockets to still be the best team in the Western Conference could it it sounds like Chris is on the shock site created and more on the shot so I guess it's a no shot because they don't have a chance against the clippers or the kings and sharks that became the clippers or the Lakers and I look at if Klay Thompson does come back I'm still going against the best shooting duo as a better team than the Houston Rockets until they built out on stage Duncan not yeah I can hear your wrong on this play comes back they have your winning it time wrong zero I want to know what goes through your mind when you watch basketball I
