What happens if we don't get a vaccine? This is what 'COVID normal' looks like
"Now no minute pretty much every press conference and in lots of news coverage, keep hearing this term covert normal as if as if we all know what that even means, but it's not normal right? It's not abnormal that we used to know how meant to understand what's meant by the term covid normal covered normal at the moment depends on where you live in Australia. So covered normal in Victoria as we speak is really quite a severe lockdown even with restrictions lifted covered normal in New South Wales is You know it's not quite normal life but the you know indoor activities restricted there's no compulsory mask-wearing, but there are outbreaks. State is on a bit of age. Covered normal everywhere else in Australia is getting back to almost normal life which actually puts them at risk of covid nineteen should be. Deposited into their state for some reason. Well, that's not really normal. Though is it because normal life included overseas travel and that's something that seems to be off the table indefinitely and we've had a question for one about audience members about this. What is the endgame? For Ustralia not just the states? What does the next year look like if we don't get vaccine or the vaccine that does come isn't isn't effective enough at first well, in states like new. South. Wales and Victoria covered normal if you like the end game. Assuming that the virus continues to circulate is that we don't circuit quite as much. So it's not locked on. It's just that we don't get into circumstances where a lot of people are mixing indoors, consp-, read the virus. So we're GONNA fewer contacts on a daily basis to reduce the chances of picking up the virus or spreading the virus. Covered normal, but it's not a lockdown. It's just that you to be careful. Now the question you raise a good one, but let's talk about internal borders. So what happens if you lift the border restrictions across? Australia, when the still virus in New South Wales Victoria, well, there's not much virus. So the risk of spread to those states is low but shoot actually it sprayed. Does that mean that automatically West trillions and south Australians queenslanders means etc.. Territories that they have to change their behavior and they've got to restrict how they do things by going indoors and live in a different way. and Professor James McCall, University of Melbourne argues that they don't that in fact, they're covered normal in states with Novartis circulating with Borders Darn is actually the way people are living at the moment, but there's gotta be a heightened alert to the possibility that the virus could come in. So people have got to be aware of symptoms get tested and that the public health systems go onto it in terms of getting on top of testing and contact tracing and that the if you like the protection so that you can reach retain the behavior in those states that you've got at the moment. So news wasn't Toria a degree of social distancing but not. Too drastic but in other states, you can continue the way you're going as long as you're prepared to come forward for testing in large numbers and the systems prepared to pick that up and the an example James quoted was the spread from Melbourne to kill more. So Regional Victoria said, very little corona virus people are getting back to normal much faster. But in fact, the State got on top of the coolmore outbreak and indeed the shepherd and outbreak very very quickly and go to under control without rural and regional victorians having to change their behavior they are covered normal if you like. So this is good news moving forward is that you could. Lower the borders have much freer flow of people and that the compromise for people in the states with Navarro spread at the moment is just ready to come forward for tasting and the systems got ready to respond, which is a small price to pay for tourism and families getting back together again,

And people especially people struggling of lost jobs and lost incomes he said, however, he said inflation inflation flation low inflation is bad and he wouldn't say why. He talked in circles after that, and the truth is low inflation is bad for. His desire to see asset prices higher because that helps him in his rich friends period. That's the motivation. He's a human being don't assign him any different motivations than other human beings. He's just like the rest of us so. Look. I understand all the worry I do and I have to and yes I'm the guys as whole plenty cash hold golden silver, whole Bitcoin, and if you're doing those things you're covered, just hold them. But in the rest of your portfolio, look around the world who knows maybe maybe snowflake a really fantastic company and if I dive deeper I will want to join Berkshire hathaway and buy some at the IPO price. Whatever the case In that other part of your portfolio, that's where you need to look around and see people getting up going to work in developed relatively still free economies putting one foot in front of the other innovating creating taking real risk. That's why I haven't said sell it. All I've only said basically hedge with these other assets. But don't sell it. All humanity will ascend as it has since you know for hundreds of thousands of years now. So that's my message for today I said I was having trouble putting it all together but I think it has come together. There's plenty to worry about at any given time and I think you should reflect that in the asset you're holding now. But you should also reflect the good things that are going on in the world and that I believe will continue to go on in the world. That's the ramp this week.

You know, maybe you are is who he trains with what he started but this guy played football for University of Arizona. He just started six years ago. He's thirty years old. He's six and one with all Knockouts one fight went to distance. Okay him and Muhammad him and I don't really get along that. Well, they got along well, but they don't train together. He trains over at the black site is a little bit sometimes but they're closed. We don't talk everyday. He doesn't want to use him. He you know, he's almost no use a defensive back for you of a is that a good football school? University of Arizona. Yeah, no. No. Okay. So I mean it's a major. I mean it's it's a major school. But I mean, they're more of a basketball school than football school football program generally kind of sucks. So he I found the pfl. He's a he's fighting a guy who's two and five this week but his two wins or against well guy that was owing and a guy that was owing to so he never actually be anybody who want to fight his opponent and he's in the main event of Titan FC to this dude that they're hyper about it all this research.

"Yeah. Yeah, you know you don't fight crime. It's like yeah. Yep. I live two lives. I'm like very very I'm like a f level Walter White, you know, unsuccessful Walter White that's pretty much but I came in late to the show and you guys were talking about Frankie Pedro. I actually had Pedro Munoz win the fight and I was actually very surprised at the judges gave it to Frankie. Now. I'm not one of these people but actually can score each round individually. My brain is a work like that. So I just reflect on what I remember from the the fight off in like as a whole and I thought based off of like the leg kicks and octagon control thought for sure the judges were going to give it to Pedro, but I honestly can see it going either way because it was like the rounds were just not active, you know, there's a lot of action but you know, I'm happy I'm cuz I was worried that Frank, you know, put a little 1:35 and a lot of times these Fighters go even lighter their chin goes to them cuz they're water goes with them and the name. And goes and you know, who knows? I mean he knocked out Cody garbrandt. He hits really hard fucking destroy Bryan Caraway not an easy guy to fight. So the fact that he was able to kind of walk through those punches shows that his chin is still there. And Dana White said, he's two fights away from the title fight at 1:35. I see him being competitive with anybody at 1:35 and he's figure about another a lot of people in my community are calling for Frankie Edgar to fight Dominick Cruz at 1:35. What do you think about that? I think it's a good fight. I think it's I there's going to be a lot of running in that fight but like not like running away but just effective movement. Yeah. It's I think it's a good fight, but it's going to be a hard fight to make I think because Cruz is coming off a loss coming off of wind and a lot of times UFC likes to go to guys coming off wins versus two guys coming off lawsuits. That's what I was thinking of when you say, I mean, it's like it seems like Frankie's on the upward trajectory. And Dominic's on the downward trajectory. Yeah, although name wise it would look great on paper. It looked at it on paper, but I don't think Dominick Cruz in the same position that Frankie is not tell you what know I really am confident about break his chances was it the way in he had looked so fucking great in my mind. I was like, he could always been fighting 135 like this seems like the best possible. Wait. Yeah get excited about a chance to that price and when it comes to octagon control, I mean was thinking that too because Frankie was always rather Pedro was always pushing forward but we've seen them before we're just because you're the one pressing the action all the time doesn't mean you're necessarily controlling the fight and as our breaking was using it with those calendars. So productively then I was like, it doesn't necessarily mean I thought it was having on the way out. He was also throwing publishing just running backing up. It was just funny though because my my wife has had like a couple of friends over and Saturday nights like to be friends over she's in the back off. And I had to watch the baby. So I'm literally watching Frankie was playing Barbie with my daughter. Like I'm playing like Barbie dolls. Like we have like six Barbies. I'm like Hey, we're playing dollhouse while watching MMA..

Insults, flaring tempers mark marathon EU summit on budget
"Weary European Union leaders expressed cautious optimism that a deal is inside on their fourth day of wrangling over an unprecedented to $0.1 trillion budget and Corona Virus Recovery Fund. That follows a weekend of walkouts, flaring tempers and insults. It took an emotional dinner speech by European Council president shown Michelle about leaders not failing their union. French President Manuel McColl. Expressing his frustration and a new set of numbers to send the marathon summit onward. McCall said these were extremely tense moments but that things were progressing. Mythical community these compromises and I say this very clearly will not be made the cost of the European gold not out of principle, but will be made because we are facing unprecedented health, economic and social crisis and because our countries needed European unity needs it. Of the two day summit was supposed to end Saturday but has been forced into overtime by deep ideological differences among the 27 leaders. All nations agree in principle they need to band together.

White House says Trump was not briefed on Russian bounty intelligence
"Okay, so, what did President Trump? No, and what should he have known about allegations that? Russia offered bounties to kill US troops in Afghanistan House. Democrats are going to the White House to ask today the New York. Times first reported on the bounties. The Times said intelligence about the Russian offers. A payment made it into president trump's daily brief months ago now the presidential daily brief is. Is almost like a classified newspaper for one very important reader NPR another reported over the years that this president does not usually read it. Despite various news reports about when the president was told, the White House said the information did not reach him NPR congressional reporter cloudy Gra has been following this one. Hey, Claudia, hi, there! What's going to happen at today's meeting at the White House? This will be led by House majority leader. Steny hoyer the white. House says they requested this meeting with Democrats and Democrats. Interns say they have a lot of questions related to these intelligence reports the group joining Hoyer at this meeting includes the chairs and members of several congressional committees with jurisdiction over this matter that includes House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff. He's raised a series of concerns including if the president. President wasn't briefed to. Was it a result of his relationship with Russian president. Vladimir Putin. I spoke to him yesterday about this. Let's take a listen watch. Concern that there's a unwillingness to confront the president with the evidence of Russia's Melania activity because he doesn't here. And this was a running theme. When it came to most Democrats, I spoke to yesterday. who were headed to the White House today. The White House briefed some congressional Republicans yesterday. Why was there meeting the Republican meeting a day earlier and what happened in that meeting? You know it's unclear why it was organized. This way in terms of just Republicans going in yesterday. However, they quickly followed that meeting. Saying Democrats are invited to. They're just coming tomorrow. Of the Republicans, who did go? They echoed the White House's narrative that the intelligence community is conflicted on what actually happened and they didn't think necessarily the trump should have been briefed, but they also expressed concerns. If the reports turn out to be true, I spoke to representative Adam. King's Inger of Illinois. He's a combat veteran. Let's take a listen. I think as we get more answers Then we'll know what the response needs to be, but I don't think built up to any kind of internal scandal, but it is definitely concerned by way of you know what role. Role is Russia Planning Afghantistan NPR also spoke with Michael McCall another house. Republican, who attended yesterday's meeting? He's the ranking member on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and he said these allegations are very serious, and if true, he thinks the US needs to take swift and severe action against Putin and his mercenaries, another Senate member Senator Ben Sasse, said he's been hearing from military families this weekend. They're livid and right to be livid. They're looking for people in the city to be looking out for their kids safety because quote, they're on the frontlines of freedom fighting for us. Are there people who have been left out of today's briefing that surprise you that you would expect to have been invited most definitely. This includes members of the Senate Armed Services Committee. This includes congressional leaders among them House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. She's called for the full House to be briefed and she and Hoyer say these briefings at the White House fall short of what's demanded here. They want the director of National Intelligence, the CIA to personally brief all house. Members at the Capitol and the story continues to evolve for example last night. The DNA and C. Director said they'll to investigate, and they'll brief the president and congressional members at the appropriate

How Not to Say Stupid Stuff When You're Stressed
"Guys. It's Friday so we're dropping bonus in this week we've got to. We've got a good one as many of you have experienced. Perhaps I'll just be myself. I've definitely experienced this. Sometimes you get stressed you say dump stuff And that has it's happening to me. Still even after having meditated for over a decade but in in Buddhism. There's a way to deal with this. They call it right speech or mindful speech and the Great Susan. Hiver a meditation teacher based in the Boston area has thought a lot about this. She's written a lot about this and she recently joined me for an episode of T. P. H. Live where we discussed this subject and took questions from the audience? Tv H live for the uninitiated. Is this show. We do on on weekdays three eastern Pacific where we do alive guided meditation for a few minutes and then we take questions from the audience. The session that you're about to hear was with me and and with Susan and we talk about rights beach and being mindful of your speech and she also guides the meditation in the beginning. By the way. You're going to hear my son. Alexander playing in the background Since was recorded Live we don't have a lot of control but what's going on in my apartment at the time and Yeah so if you're okay with that listen on here we go Susan Piper. Hey everybody welcome T. ph live live from my living room if you hear background noise that is my son. Alexander playing with toys in the background tried to talk him into going into his room but didn't work so the role with like good meditators Speaking of good meditators we've got A great teacher today. Susan Piper beaming in from some of Massachusetts. I think they pronounce it. You know if you're speaking the king's English you'll be Somerville locally at some level and Susan. Thanks for joining. Us really appreciate it. I'M SO GLAD TO BE HERE. Appreciate you having our. It's our pleasure You you were a hit last time so it really great to have you back again and I wanted to talk about the subject. Which is I mean incredibly Germain and relevant these days of speech you know how we communicate with other people that Buddhist McCall it right speech Why why in particular is on your mind? These days do something wrong. I I don't know how can avoid doing something wrong in this environment. It's this topic. Came to mind because it's crazy out there. Y'All are people saying all sorts of things. They're people getting in arguments because we're isolated from each other. All we have a speech you know. That's our sole means of communication. It's all happening in the ether. It's so easy to project onto and everybody's uncertain humanity tends not to wear uncertainty well and we WANNA make up explanations for why. This is happening why that's happening and and were isolated. So uncertainty plus isolation leads to some crazy stuff. I online and at home. So how does a muting myself while you're answering? Because it's getting Routing the backdrop here so how. How can meditation help us with our speech? Well that's a very good question and so I just the definition of right speech which is a classical definition mean. Nobody has to be a Buddhist obviously to practice any of this but the whole Buddhist Path. of liberation is called the eightfold path. Right view right intention right speech number three so it's way up there and write speeches no lying. No abusive speech know divisive speech and no idol speech or no gossip. So we're everybody's telling you know it's really hard to find anyone who's not lying even if you think you're not lying people are just spouting things they actually haven't verified. That counts ally. There's I mean I don't have to explain that there's abusive speech and there's divisive speech and then there's Got Gossiping so it's hard not to do those things because we're human beings we get scared and we get angry and what what is needed before we open. Our PILES IS SPACE. Just some little space and then we can have some agency over what comes out and meditation is the practice of creating that space over and over again with every breath get absorbed in your thoughts as you know. And then you see that and you let go to letting go is quite delightful because immediately. There's a space and in meditation. You come back to the breath but in life you could come back to the good intentions of your kind heart or you know the needs of the person in front of you or the truth of your feelings about without that space. There's just reflexive nonsense. Speaking for myself I was just GonNa say speaking for myself. I'm still doing a reflexive nonsense. hopefully a little bit less So so we've invoke meditation when we do a little bit and then we'll at and let me tell people who are watching live. I know a lot of you. Don't watch live but those are watching. Live if you could send questions on this issue in particular. That'd be great Send any questions you want. We'll probably GONNA give us in preference to relevant questions but even if they're irrelevant. Send away so Susan Myself and you WanNa take over left to thank you so I thank you for being willing to sit and rest your minds so meditation practice very simple. Take a comfortable seat which basically means sit up straight. Unless you don't feel well then lie down and relax meaning while you're sitting up straight. Soften soften the front body the belly the area around the heart the shoulders times of stress. It can feel like the shoulders are like all the time but you can just let them let everything roll off your back. The mouth is closed and the reason the mouth is closed and meditation is. Because you don't have to say anything and that is a delightful luxury so let all the muscles of speech relax throat the jaw the tongue and let the inclination to speak relax to and enjoy not having to prove anything justify question and notice that inside there actually is no one talking anyway so it is quiet and you can rest in that quiet

I go to a Boutique Jim now. So it's a very small gym. I mean it's not like a biggie. No planet fitness or anything like that and I think there were three people at one point in the gym maybe to had it to myself but there was big signs everywhere you know you have to wash if they see you not sanitizing after the kick you out. They had the they had every other machine closed off. So you couldn't use it so it was spaced out. People were wearing masks entering and leaving Yes I I actually don't feel scared anymore.

"How does your study change practice? What's the take home point so I would say this when patients in your practice complain bitterly of Insomnia that this is a proxy indicator for suicide risk? So what does this mean practically speaking so imagine? You've got a patient who's been doing well and then one day they come in. And they say doc since I've last seen you my sleep has been terrible. And that's all they say to me that would provoke me now to ask. Well understand that you've been feeling badly about your sleep. Have you also thinking about suicide since I've seen you so a new complaint or emerging complain about insomnia might prompt you to ask about suicide even if you weren't thinking about it or four and then as far as treatment goes if I have a depressed patient that's got insomnia and maybe suicidal aviation somewhere between passive suicide? The -ation all the way up to suicidal fantasies without planner intent. I think it's reasonable to offer. A short courses of quantity limited as important a hypnotic. The way our study was done the first week we only gave people a one week supply. We made them come back at the end of one week and it looks like they were doing better than the second week. They got two week supply in two weeks applied a two week supply so as a bit onerous and memes lot of visits to the doctor they can still take it every night right. They took it every night. But we weren't gonNA turn a suicidal person lose with a month's supply of sleeping pills. They got you know a week or two at a time and then they had to come back and account for themselves and how they were doing so I think that's reasonable and then you know we started our our discussion this hour talking about tries dome and while I'm not prepared to say tragedy causes people to be suicidal. I am wondering if this association is now appearing. The literature is really just reflection that presidents not such a great hypnotic. And so if you have someone who's depressed and INSOMNIAC and you're really trying to forestall suicide law deation. Maybe we should really treat insomnia with a proven treatment like FDA approved naughty. Transom may be causing suicide only because it fails to adequately treat insomnia. Thank you dot McCall and now the word of the day excuse ya excuse is a disorder in the sense of taste. It can include bad taste in the mouth distorted or metallic taste things or a loss of taste. Like we see with normal aging to skews. Ya is a NEUROLOGIC SYMPTOM. But what we're concerned about here is when it's a side effect to psychiatric medications. There's at least four medicines where you might see it. On one is the new drugs. Proviso S Ketamine Nasal spray which can cause such an unpleasant to skews that it makes the patient vomit. The other is lithium which can cause or metallic tastes in about twenty percent of patients. Stimulants like adderall. And Ritalin decreased the threshold for bitter taste and can then cause more bitter taste in the mouth and then there's the sleep medicine is oh pecan. Lou Nesta which is notorious for producing metallic taste to skews. You is more common in older women and this side effect on. Luneta is also a lot more common in older women. You can also see disclosure as part of a number of medical conditions including diabetes and other endocrine disorders cancer infections of the mouth and anything that causes dry mouth as well as smoking and brain injury.

"For the same reason. Researchers have to name their primary outcome if the primary outcome was negative but the secondary one was positive. It's thought to be a random finding but there is a way around this. Researchers can run a bond fury correction to adjust for the fact that they have more than one measure going on to go back to the pool analogy. This would be like saying okay. I'll let you name to pockets that you plan to sink the eight ball in but to balance that advantage you'll need to win by more than two balls. That's the correction. Dr McCall's team was honest about this problem and ran the bond fury correction. And here's what they found. The results were no longer significant. After running it I understand that the results are not technically positive but I still saw a lot of good info in this paper. I mean the gist of it suggests that trading insomnia is going to reduce suicide for example Zo pedums. Anti suicide effects are more pronounced in the patients with severe insomnia and they found that suicide -ality tended to improve asleep improved even though they couldn't pin that affect entirely on. Zoll pet him. So what do we do with all of these findings? What I do is treat those kinds of findings. The secondary outcomes the same way. I look at openly or uncontrolled results. It's not definitive proof. But it's a real possibility and unless we have a study with better design which in this case we don't. It's the best we got. Dr McCall concluded that the results were not strong enough to support the routine use of sleep meds in depressed patients with suicidality but that it may be beneficial in those with severe insomnia also learned something else along the way that can inform practice. At the end of the two-month study they abruptly stopped the slate medication and continue the S. Sri and here's what happened. The remarkable thing is that for the most part. The advantages had been made continues both for insomnia and for the suicidality. So here's here's what I think it means clinically when we think about some of the hesitancy that we have a prescribing scheduled for control substances for sleep. One of the hesitancy says well when you go down this road. There's no going back that you start a benzodiazepine receptor agonists and once you make that commitment than you are committed. And it's hard to stop the drug. That was not our experience. Our experience was when we started the sleeping pill simultaneous with the assets or I at the end of the eight weeks we could hold off the sleeping pill leave the SS Ryan Place and the patients flew straight so to speak. They did not derail and this is consistent with a study that was done. With as optic clone where patients same kind of patients except they weren't suicidal so depressed patients with insomnia everybody gets SSI SARAI HALF RANDOMIZED PLACEBO. Hafer randomized to his optical in at bedtime for sleep and at the end of eight weeks you can stop the cloud and people just do just fine so I think the message here is our times that maybe when you prescribe sleeping pills by themselves to people depressed. It might seem difficult to stop it when she started but in the setting of treating depression Where he had this other treatment going on got maybe an SS arrive appropriate. Or whatever it is it might be possible just to jump in with a sleeping pill and then jump back out after about eight weeks. I'm not sure that we are committed to stay in for the long term with sleeping pill I take it that you're not going to conclude that continued Zoll. Padam use is going to reduce suicidality. We just don't know what the future we just. We just don't know beyond two months and frankly the fact that the patients made a clean transition into carries usual and seem to maintain the advantage that was gained during the randomized period. Makes me think that as a matter of course we should always try to stop the hypnotic in a matter.
Calling Tennis Remotely, with Ravi Ubha
"Welcome to new challenges remaining. I'm Ben Rothenberg as millions of folks around the world enter their third month of adjusting to working remotely I thought this might be a good time to share the experiences of what it's like to work remotely in tennis when tennis is a sport that sts professionally which doesn't really currently and much of the world feed commentary on the tennis matches you watch at home is delivered from a world away from the courts where the matches are taking place and one of the Veterans of this craft is. Ravi who also works on site at tournaments as a freelance reporter. So foot both the close the distant kind of work in Tennessee. So Ravi will describe here what. It's like working in broadcasting rotely at lifestyle of being distant from the courts and the challenges of creating atmosphere. A place that you're nowhere near so hopefully you will find this interesting. Maybe a little bit resident in these times of distance working that we're all living in and general distance. This interview was recorded near the end of this year's Australian. Open as you'll be able to tell but hopefully it has some some meaning residents or something in our lives. Today here is Ravi. I'm thrilled to be joined on this episode by my friend Robbie who is aware of many different hats in the tennis world. He is this week at the Australian Open. As we record this on my I'll and the pressroom and I'll made of mine as we walked back and forth press conferences and whatever else and share reactions to whatever missed overheads and such happened at once. He's one of those voices in unison gasping and signing and also a voice that I hear actually on the TV and watching at home as a frequent world feed commentator tennis Ravi. Thank you for being here. Ben My pleasure. Thank you for people who maybe more or less with you. Just how did you get into tennis? I in your life. How did you for make the jump into doing it as a career? In my life I grew up in Canada so It surprises me that I actually got into tennis. Because as you know. It's a big hockey country at my earliest memories at home when I was a little kid. Four or five watching the US Open in the background was on TV. Washington handle who? I think. He's my idol. When it comes to sportsman was younger so it started from that Played my whole life. Love playing very regularly and then got into it You know my profession and when I moved to London I was in the early two thousands. I is really a writer and thereafter going into the booth and doing You know share a picture of of commentating and TV work also. So how'd so the writing we've got a lot of show or other writing side of its. I'm more curious about how you make that. Jump how you go from being on the page. What was your first time being behind a microphone? I remember it well. It was a two thousand nine. I was asked to do a Davis Cup tie between Russia and Russia and Romania And so I did that s skew. Kinda thing. Yeah it was actually victor. S Q in McCall usually my first match. Oh I remember well and I think it was because they were looking for people who who just new tennis and covered tennis and as somebody who grew up broadcasting also. I was reported in Montreal where I grew up doing TV. I think they knew that. And they just stick. Okay let's Let's bring him in on something I wanted to do. So it really started from my point. According I've done a lot of tennis radio. Color Commentary. Saddam that different from doing TV. But I'm curious what as you got more into? Tv having been a writer having been a reporter. What skills are translated into what once? Don't translate what he to learn on that new in this new role well it For example the attention to detail that you have in imprinted writing. I think that's very helpful when it comes to being in the booth you know when digging up statistics knowing where to look and knowing how to get them to look for the inside stuff rather than just the basic statistics. I saw you antennas abstract on your computer just nine. Yeah for sure a great website. That's that's something that I bring with me. On the print side things that are different You know you know went to jump jump in and out to in went to Q. Out I'd also just broadcasting is a different is a different also voice. Really when you're as to when you're talking somebody like as we're chatting but now it's it's a different voice you put on. You also have to learn. Went to kind of hit your spots when it comes to nailing down for example phrases after a particular matches. Done you WanNa with a big extra It's not exactly the lead on when it's so important for peace pace but it's kind of the big finish in broadcasting so that there are little things like that they're different is that. I think you become more accustomed to as you do more shoe and actually imprint. They really don't emphasize most editors or papers or publications don emphasize ending so much. Onto a real sign off they most articles fade out or some editors sort of cut from the bottom which is frustrating when that happens because the idea try to put endings on Surrey generally. Bs that when did. When did it become a more full-time thing for you? And how did sort of adding work in that particular line? Is it same as other freelance work or is it different? Yeah no it's pretty much since the I would say two thousand thirteen fourteen and I I would say it's become more of doing that Rather than writing than before it was kind of opposite. He's been more of the writing than the broadcast. I always say since two thousand and thirteen and fourteen. I've lucky enough to to do a lot and it's something I love doing. I mean I sat on the air sometimes tournaments that you know. It's such an honor privileged to be doing it because as a tennis fan my whole life you know. Don't consider it a job. I'm very lucky doing something I really really love. And that's all really can ask for you. Mentioned sort of how the attention to detail in the writing can help the TV. Tv helped the writing effort to go the other direction too. Well helps in the sense that I get to watch a lot of tennis I believe and so I think I have a pretty good grasp of the players so it helps to foster ideas because you know for example. I'll give you an example I was watching an accommodated a master on the Brazilian player. A couple of years ago Eliane Pereira And I was digging up homework doing research for her master when she was playing at home. And I just read Interesting stuff about her. How she grew up in really extreme poverty you know. She didn't have a bathroom in her house. She had her bathroom in kind of the back garden. And so I thought well that'd be nice idea to do a longer feature a long story on inside that Saranda presumably written for the time. Remember that So it does help I mean and I think Ben as you know the more you homework you do on any subject on any play you realize that every player has a great story or has a story to tell I think that's the lesson that I learned. I try to bring them in the booth especially at times when a match is getting out of hand when it's not it's not as dramatic in oak at six one five two or six one three love. Matt out of Control. I think you want to sprinkle in those nuggets Talk about other stuff rather than you know the rallies techniques stuff.

I like the terrain so I'm perfectly happy with long expenses of of of of emptiness too high skies empty skies and the light that goes with that. It's something which which strikes a real chord with me and I'm always very happy when I'm back in Botswana Something about it smells of the Bush. The sounds of the Bush. The CICADAS striking up The sounds of the night under an African skied. Night particularly in Botswana where there's virtually pollution you see this great empty velvet term above you with the field upon field of stars constellations. And you almost think that the stars are making sound because you hear these squeaks and this this orchestration of of a noises from from the bush. Of course it's very insects getting about the paternal business but It's it's a wonderful son. Attract look at the sky. Lovely when you think back to that the childhood in the country. That's now Zimbabwe. Did it feel like you're at the center of your world or did you feel like you're far away in an ruled was happening back with your your family's Yeltsin? I think I think he was a sense of of of being a away from the from the rest of the world. I think that that's inevitable. Because people were quite far away from other centers so Austrailia would have been would be feeling of isolation from what was happening in Europe and the same thing I suppose in my boyhood as well but this was an outpost. I think it's very different these days. Because the world has has has contracted in there. Isn't this great sense of of separation and we're we're all much closer to to one another and of course. Obviously things have happened. The center of gravity change and calls for history. What were your family doing? Their my father worked and blue air and he was he was a he was a public prosecutor in the civil service and he was and so they were there and then he left there there. My parents left much later on and I went to university carpenter service at school and in Zimbabwe and highs and had the rest medication in Scotland then spent the rest of my life in Scotland so the majority of my time has been spent in Scotland with the exception of a couple of periods. When I've lived elsewhere I lived for a year and in Northern Ireland. In Belfast. In seventy three hundred four which was a very interesting Interesting period and for me was was a very important period in my life and I also use back the law. There I was. I was academic. I was a lecturer in law at the Queen's University in Belfast. Out a very difficult time because when I went there the troubles were on in a very vivid way. And so you will conscious of the fact that you were in the middle of a fairly Lewis Gale civil war. And here's what what was going on in Northern Ireland particularly in in the cities and so You conscious of Explosions going on. You heard explosions. You heard gunfire exchange of Of of useful troops patrolling the streets were army checkpoints or all over the place it was it was very. I suppose alm is frightening at times when you when you saw this going on. You had to be careful. You had to know the social geography of the place. You had to know where you where you were because if you're in the in the wrong place and had the misfortune to be in the wrong place at the wrong time you could obviously in considerable difficulty impact. Did that have on You Sandy? When he said it was it was such an important. Well it was it was I was what was I. I was in my sort of mid twenty S. That was a time when I think I did quite a bit of growing up because I think one do that. Anyway I think that stage in life when is when is is learning a lot when she'll be gone so that was a psychologically important for me and it made me think about things because prior to that. I suppose certainly in Edinburgh where I'd been living. Everything was well ordered and and worked and there was no and here. I was in the middle of a very distressing conflict so I knew people. On both sides of the conflict I had friends who were in on either side and of course so many people have taken a position Were obliged to take a position. Really living in some way like Belfast. So I remember. I used to have coffee every morning in little coffee house. Not Far from the Faculty of Law where I was working and I met a colleague who walls from the Bronson side the loyalist side of the fence and he would tell me what his view of the situation was And make various suggestions not night. I would sit there and doesn't his his view of events and then I met. I met for lunch a colleague who was a republican staunch Republican from the other side and so over lunch. He told me what his thoughts were on the situation. So I got both sides of the of the argument and it was very interesting and people's appreciation of life. Their awareness is heightened in the middle of conflict. I read about this. I'd read that if you're in the middle of a war civil war or whatever it is that somehow you'll Sense of life is is up and so people read the newspapers avidly. They're very well aware. Of what is what is going on. So it was a dramatic time for me and sometimes it had very harrowing moments. I remember one of my students coming into my office to explain why he'd been away for a week or whatever it was and he sat there and he said his brother had just been shot dead. He being shot dead in an armed on to raid the Banco whatever and That was obviously really pretty. Pretty tough and I was in that particular case interesting enough. This young man didn't appear to have any the bitterness which was which was striking. I still remember that the way in which he wasn't coming up with what you would have thought would be bitter anger directed against whichever paramilitary group was. Who had done this having experienced a situation like that sort of history in the Roy in a way some writers would have gone on to make a career setting novels in places of great conflict or of tension between rival ideologies overly religious groups. And they're exactly the sorts of books. You don't right yes I suppose that's right. I think writers find their their place on the spectrum of literature. And you you find what you're comfortable with and there are writers who can do that Wonderfully and they can capture conflict. They can capture uncertainty in division and they can capture the suffering of the world and the world is undoubtedly in many respects a veil of tears if we look about the world. We don't have to look too far to encounter real distress and that has to be recorded and people can can do it and they're some writers who did with extraordinary ability so for example Ernest. Hemingway would go out and he'd look for that sort of sort of thing. So when Hemingway's writing about the campaign in northern Italy in the in the first war in the Spanish civil war would he writes about that of very dramatically in many other. Do not not what I tend to I mean I. I'm more keen on writing about the ordinary life of of people the and particularly I think the a slightly comedic aspect of of ordinary life partly. Because that's where you enjoy spending your time in in that. Kind of good humid Womb friendly sort of environment. Yes it might be. I think for example in the number Bundy's detective agency books. I write about a particular society which is a which is a very peaceful society. Rana is a very good place and you you meet really nice kind people People sometimes accuse me of exaggerating that. But I'm not that's what they're like remain so many people who are exactly the sort of people you want to sit down and have a cup of tea with now of course as you go through life you realize that the world is full of people like that that most people's lives are fairly positive. Most people don't have a really dramatic things happening in their lives and their lives consist of smaller incidents and these small incidents can be amusing or they can say something about the poignancy of life just the way people conduct themselves in day to day. Affairs can say a great deal about the great issues. Jane Austen for example. She said that her novels were little pieces of ivory which she painted a tiny picture which is exactly what they are. You look at Jane Austen. What Jane austen about? It's whether it's as gained Barry Mr Soon. So whether somebody else is going to marry him and the same a pro. Probably say that. To An extent about Anthony Trollop I'm reading trawler. Put the at the time reading doctor. Thorne which I hadn't read before that's about seven hundred pages or whatever of exactly the sort of this sort of thing.

"This is an ABC podcast. Today's big adventure is with the novelist. Alexander McCall Smith and you'll know his name in connection with his best selling novel the number one ladies' detective agency which is also a TV series before writing that book Alexander Off Sandy as he likes to be known was minding his own business working as a professor of medical law in Edinburgh but as it was revealed when he spoke to us in twenty eighteen. Sandy has also had a life full of adventures from his Childhood in Botswana to dangerous sailing trips around the Mediterranean. Hello Sandy welcome to conversations. Thank you very much last year. You published a series of tweets. That went like this one. I'm selling a boat of the Greek Collins last night a violent storm seized us and we faced being dashed on rocks. We narrowly escaped disaster to it was very frightening. Then I thought could material for the next. Tober more book. When dawn came we were glad to be alive. Three and our nature is benign. Wants more homers wind oxy not a cloud in the Sky Jason? And the ARGONAUTS sailed knee. Here how close were you relate to being pushed against those rocks? Will we will fairly close. I must say that I slightly regretted those tweets. Of course this is a well-known thing. We should sleep on tweets and wait and wait for twenty four hours. Politicians might bear that in mind Because what happened was that that was taken up by the press so back in the UK The Scotsman newspaper and The Times newspaper in the Telegraph. They all Obviously it was a thin newsday and they didn't have anything. Open the importance to write about and so they got hold of this and said narrow escape for wall of faced with shipwreck and so and and of course all my friends a thought here. I'm presumably my enemies auto. What does he that he got? But anyway I I think people took it as being rather more dangerous than it was but it actually very exciting exciting because we had innocently and very appropriately anchored in this bay and done everything the right way round. We weren't making any mistakes. Take any risks and along came school Very very violent school in the small house of the morning with With no real warning these storms. Move across the sea particularly not part of Greece apparently and was so dramatic and the boat was tossed this way. And that and we dragged out anchor because of the sheer force of the sudden onslaught and we were very close to the to the shore and rocks and how did not been froth skippers Tremendously quick reaction to this. We could have been dashed on the rocks. And then obviously that would have been would be awkward to put it mildly. But we did we did. We got away. We managed to get the anchor up and and get the engine engine. We got out of it but it was really frightening because when something like that happens at Sea. The fury of the elements is really pretty breathtaking. Well it's an immediate moment where you go from enjoying yourself in thinking you're kind of in control of of something to realizing that should the ocean turn. You don't really have much. Who Will you think of the of the words of that great to him for those in peril on the sea Who Bids the mighty ocean deep? Its own appointed limits. Keep now you can just imagine the poor old mariners and the OJ singing this as they were tossed around on the on the ocean so it it brings it home to you. How quickly things happen at sea? And how much you're at the mercy of the elements because there is that wonderful expression that people use from time to time. They say if they hear about something unpleasant happening they say oh well worse things have happened. See I've never worked hard. Exactly these words things ask when you end up on. Davy Jones Locker. That's pretty bad. I think that's regarded as a negative outcome when we're very glad that that that wasn't where you ended up that night. When did you stop selling? How long has this been a passion of yours? I started feeling about fifteen years ago. Something like that. And I've become quite a quite a keen amateur yachtsman. I'm very conscious of my limitations. I think you have to be because if you are an adventurous yachtsman and you're not conscious of your limitations. Your career at sea can be quite short because you get into difficulties. So I'm I'm quite. I prefer to stay inside of land. So you wouldn't catch me Sitting across any really substantial bits of Seattle though I've just come back from sailing in the Caribbean and we did across seeing of about thirty miles Which means that. When you're in the middle you can just see the land on either side. And that's that's all right with me. I prefer to be close. I prefer to be about two three hundred meters from end. But obviously you can swim back so that you need arise with preferably walk that you love about Sally will. It's a it's a wonderful pursuit. Messing around. In boats as as the expression hesitant in wind in the willows messing about embraces is immensely relaxing time passes in in a rather different way. When you're on the water the day if you're cruising you're staying saying on the boat at At night cruising becomes a wonderful langourous activity where you get up in the morning. You have. Your breakfast often enroll the nice circumstances on the deck. And then you think about leaving new leave you sail for awhile in which doesn't really require you to do too much other than get. The sales happens steer the boat. And then you have lunch and then you put an Cadogan and obey at three o'clock four o'clock in the afternoon and you swim and the day's gone and won't could be more pleasant than that too. So boots are terrific. Not Having said that a boat is a very very good way of wasting time and money today. Talks about yachting is being the equivalent of standing under the Code Child pouring banknotes Donald Graham. And that's case if you have a boat even if you have a small boat but square to be painted they required to be taken out of the water everything about about tends to be expensive safe. You need a bit a rope align or whatever you discover that that's expensive if you need a new windshield. Whatever immensely expensive so very very good way of of bankrupting yourself is that part of the pleasure. All of the kit that goes along with it all of the the words in the lower and the and the skilled seamen hostile. That's right you. You can synch very deeply into it. It's like becoming an enthusiastic member of a of a new religion. You know you you you you sign up for the whole show and so With boats you You learn you learn new language and you you use your language in a way to impress other people who don't know much about the beginning. Of course he didn't have much about basis out. But you picked up a few words so you'll you'll occasionally see say things like Sabato port and then you say to your principles doubled. Oh heavens I mean right you know what what what equals Daban? You learn not to call a rope rope and you call it a a line or a sheet. That's that's you very proud of those words when you when you learn them for the first time and then you learn how to read a naval chart? That's that's great so Because at the beginning you didn't know which which ways is all just looks at blue but you learn that. And then you you learn to walk in a certain way with a certain SORTA swagger if you can keep a straight face doing this now and Mike is also. I bought myself a naval cap. Which is a captain's cap and I do wear it and everybody thinks it's utterly ridiculous but I. I wear a splendid naval with an anchor in the front and there's quite a lot of gold braid because I think in fact it was a naval commanders cap and so it shouldn't really be wary about sailing in the Caribbean we. We sailed as we've just been doing a couple of months ago we were sailing down the down the windward islands there. And we were on French islands. Guadeloupe and Martinique and Yugoslavia. I would go with my friends from the boat wearing the capital of course try to distance themselves from from me but the local really like it and so on the French islands could say Bonjour Monsieur captured so it's all all innocent disappointed wearing it now. To be honest on on the water will only wear on water. Also I do. Every year I go with a group of of six old friends. We go in a boy's cruise. We get permission to go often. We and we say last year we sold in Greece. We did two weeks sailing in the sporadic as I in northern Greece. And that was that was really fabulous but We do have We do have great fun and we're a singing boat which is interesting. We've got some very fine singers in the crew and so we will go ashore sometimes and and sing into into will we do the parts of penzance. So we'll do a bit from the parts of penzance and we will sing sea shanties and we'll also to we'll sing other things so for example on this last group trip we we sell to this uninhabited island or uninhabited apart. From a monastery up on top of this hill and we climbed up we anchored in the bay and climbed up and we were very very well received by the monk. There were three months off. Monks was only one on duty. I I didn't with the other two were doing but there was one who's on duty and he spoke. He spoke very good English and he instantly. He entertained us in this call chart in this monastery and he produced a tray of drinks for us some water and little little Greek Drinks and also toffee. And you this is the sort of hospital not that you get in Orthodox circles so we had toffee. Although I do I did remember a friend of mine who was a clergyman who many us back was visiting Istanbul and he had received a letter of introduction from a bishop in Scotland. Who Said Oh you must go and see my friend the archimandrite of whatever some very important stocks figure and he went in and he had the trae brought to him as he was ushered into the presence of this Orthodox dignitary and my friend was given a Little Cup of coffee to drink and then a bit of toffee which politeness required that. He should take which he did and of course. It immediately stuck his teeth together so the Orthodox dignitary were saying. How is my great friends? The bishop of whatever and my friend would say but this Mug was was was wonderful so we will receive and then we got on to the subject of splits and heresies in the Orthodox Church in it so happened that a couple of us knew something about the filial quake controversy in the UNORTHODOXY which was a great schism in the Orthodox Church. And we were able to to mention this and so he was delighted. That here was somebody who knew about this obscure religious dispute and then he discovered that we could sing We could do some chance and so he. He took us into the chapel and we sang to him and then he got his his lovely old book of Orthodox Johnson. He sang back to us. It was a really wonderful wonderful normand. Adventures have always. It seems. Been important to grab hold of your imagination. Where did you develop your taste for adventure? You think well I think for most of us and I think most people like the occasional adventure. I mean many people would just like say one adventure per year. I mean some people say one a decade is enough but we all quite like a small adventure and a small adventure with a happy ending is fine. I think it comes from childhood reading. That's where we I begin to feel that adventures are good thing and I remember as a boy. I used to read Wolf example. Enid Blyton and in lighten. The kids all had adventures. You'll remember that the holidays came up and there. They were all They attempted to move in gangs in black and she was very keen on gangs. And so you'd have your gang together and they'd say I the holidays. I wanted to win and eventually came to come on and sure enough. A mysterious car drives past. Somebody's seen camping in the woods. Seeing people coming in the woods very good sign that they might get an adventure and so there. I read this all with great interest. The wonderful thing about the button stories always there are ways home safely fatigue ventures always end wells exciting but reassuring at the same time. You go back for tea. And even if the adventure isn't finished that day and it's to be continued the next day you still get back in time for tea and then the morning part of the adventure. So this is deeply embedded in us I think in our psyche grew up in Africa in what was then the British colony of southern Rhodesia. Now that sounds like a place that would have been full of adventures. Was it will yes..

"Doctor respected McCall have been listening to this debate about stop and frisk and how it's a racial profiling so on and so forth but I've never when we put it this way I would ask myself the question why are black people being stopped at such a high rate like this so I went online did a couple of minutes to research long story short I found that with only sixty percent of the population black people the black criminals a black American criminals are committing thirty seven percent of the crimes while their white counterparts criminal Americans being I think was sixty one percent well even if those facts are true they're probably FBI statistics that you're quoting correct well my here's my point yes yes or no but we gotta go you getting your data you probably getting out of the FBI database even if what you're saying is true you know people are afraid to say it today I know and that's my point is that I mean can you imagine somebody bring that up one of the to say they'd be instantly label but here's my main point why is nobody yes that the young black man or you could black criminal case stop doing crime in maybe the police won't harass you so much I mean I want to ask you something I I don't know what your races are you ethnically different than a white person I don't know I don't even have to ask the question yes no that's why you have a black brother back man born and raised in America been here all my life all rights but you're here realist you actually look at what's going on you know looking at what you'd like to see if you look at what you do see where what I don't get out of there I was the one member at apple so when they were dumping water on the back back east yes yes or the one in that in some of those young black perpetrators they seem like they were twelve thirteen fourteen that said it myself where are these guys father's the bottom right he would've smacked the cat in the hat if you did that if it was your kid you never want to your to grab them by the hand of taking a moment let him know what's what I understand that but they what egged on by Bernie Sanders they will act on by the entire democratic establishment which for well over several years since Obama has been screaming about racism racism racism and basically saying go get Whitey the staff fit the the puzzle a little bit accuracy that's part of the world so I guess the solution is I guess black people don't have to wake up and say what we need to get back to our moral center and where are the farms going to come from it used to be a strong father announced that kept the kid from going astray whether the kid was white or black when he was Christian Jewish Asian or Hispanic it didn't matter it took a tough father who saw what was going on the publication and say cut it out I'm not going to put up with this it's wrong but the fathers are gone and I don't have any answer for that back in a minute join those.

And even though Oh all told he's written or contributed to more than one hundred bucks riding is still a point of self-reflection. Ideally want to want to undertake is busy. The occasional examination of itself and rising maybe facilitates that because they were all sitting having a conversation with the counters in the in the book. And that probably helps you to to think about things within your within yourself in this wide ranging conversation will explore how he thinks about about his characters and the beautiful African nation they live in how he approached a modern retelling of Jane Austen's classic and what book he considers a must read. I'm Andrew Kaufman Kaufman. And this is the strategic presented by the George W Bush Institute. What happens when he crossed the forty third president didn't late night? Sketch comedy and compelling conversation this strategic a podcast born from the word strategically which was coined by the now embraced by the George W Bush administration. We highlight the Americans feared of leadership and compassion through thought provoking conversations. And we're reminded that the most effective leaders are the ones who laugh breath. Today's episode is a literary treat our co host Hannah Abney Vp of external journal Fares at the Bush Center but more notably is the number one fan of the number one ladies' detective agency. Welcome Hannah and welcome to Alexander McCall Smith Smith Award winning author whose books have sold over forty million copies. He his latest novel to the land of long lost. Friends is the twentieth book. And the number one in the number one ladies' Detective Agency series and it's available now Sandy. Welcome welcome to the strategic and thank you so much for this time. Thank you very much for the invitation. So incidentally today only you we introduced you as an author. But you're not just an author. You're also the bassoon player for the really terrible orchestra. We understand will yes. I used to play the bassoon. In the ready edited. Orchestra is since then switched to the SOx Fan the tax So this was an orchestra that my wife and I found it Of Twenty S. Good for people who musically challenged and who would like to play in an orchestra that didn't deserve to play extra and so we set it up. We discovered through an awful lot of people wanted to play. And we've been playing since then and going from weakness weakness and the great fun it's very very bad amateur orchestra Oh we have several authors here in the US. Dave Berry and Stephen King Amy Tan. They made the rock bottom remainders. Who are a rock band authors? Have Y'all ever talked about collaborating and doing semes- some sweet orchestra we've been wishing for him to approach from them but they haven't the tech they haven't been in touch that's too bad. I'd pay money to see that. We should note that Andrew is actually also an amateur condition. And he really is just was just excited to be able to bring up bands in general. Yes but I suspect you'll probably quite good now. I'm actually not I. I have to provide food and drink for France in my house and then I surprised them with my music and at that point. They can't leave because they feel fed them. So it's really kind of embarrassing so you began writing really you know. Your latest book is to the land of long long lost friends. And he began writing this series later in life At fifty thereabouts and so now that this book is twenty book. Another this series is twenty bucks deep. What have you learned about yourself on this journey? And how's the series East changed who you are. That's very interesting question I suppose I've learned quite a lot about writing and therefore one leads quite a bit about the the way in which one approaches the task of writing I think also it probably has caused me to think about some of the things that I but even some views that I hold some of my attitude soon which I think often happens in life as you go through life Ideally that you want to Want to undertake us. Busy occasional examination of oneself and writing. Maybe facilitates that because though Oh you all sitting having a conversation with counters in the in the book and that probably Helps you to to think about Things within your within yourself self and of course when you've written something and you read it you may discover a watch you believe. We'll think about things which is another way of looking at it because has many many of our views. And I suppose how prejudices our preferences and so on our subconscious not not necessarily articulate particularly at specifically. So if you read something and say we'll that's written by somebody who believes that it can help in the main character in the in the series A woman Mavra Matz Way. is based on a woman that you interacted with one time where I've heard you talk about the woman who may be inspired the character in some way. Can you tell us about that. Will I think what happened was that I saw somebody somebody who made me think I should write about somebody like that. So that's a little bit different from basing character on a on a real person us and I tend not to base Characters in my books on on real people for a variety of reasons one of them is that you could give offense to to somebody they they would say. Well you know. I'm not really like that at all. so what happened. In that case was that I saw a woman between many as good who was giving chicken to the people? With whom O.. Staying and she tasted chicken round the garden and how today to them having dispatched the poor poor chicken and and that made me think about Writing about a woman a bit like that but not that actual women so that was the the the seed of the the idea and I think rises often work like that. They see something or hear something which in itself both may not be particularly significant but that makes them think about the possibility of writing writing something in the in in the future That's what happened happened with our mouths. Be So I couldn't take you to swan and say this is the basis of Marmande has the person upon him more months we as modeled frayed trade. I couldn't do that wish I could. I could take you to Somewhere a bit like her house there are I believe tours and twenty which will take thank you to the house in which I live which which. Actually I didn't like that. They've just picked a warehouse and said did you know this is where this is where he lived But I didn't think I didn't think it bore any relation to where I actually did live. That's the it has relatively almost uh well one of the things that strikes me so much about marmots way is is she such a brave character like raves striking. And you you wrote. As she made her way back to tiny van she listened to her own breathing and felt her own heart thumping wildly. She had no idea where she had found the courage. But it had been there like the water at the bottom of a disused quarry corey unfathomable unfathomably deep. Did you intentionally set out to write about a woman though so so brave. That just kind of happen her thing that what happened. I didn't really have much of a preconception of when I started writing about. I didn't really see her in any great detail I I thought of her as being what I call traditionally built so she's fairly Largish lady and I saw With a smile. But what's that wasn't anything much more. As far as her. Her appearance was concerned similarly with with her character. I had a general idea that she would be resourceful. Intuitive friendly and kind sir just generally a very positive person bravery I hadn't. I really thought about very much but that I think often happens as you write about a character. The character reveals herself or himself as you as he writes And and they acquire the counters require a sort of reality which is independent to be will seems independent view. The author in in fact obviously comes from somewhere in in the author's mind. But it seems to me that I'm just acting as a chronicler of the doings at these people that they're they're going ahead and doing all this just just observing one way of looking at what was it like to see your characters come to life on the screen in the. Hbo Adaptation. Well that was very interesting actually because I went to WANNA At the time when they were filming so I sold the SAT. And so what was what was going on. And I not having had any particular view of what they looked like the characters when I was introduced the actors who were playing the characters. I was fine with that. And people said to me at the time and then we journalists that that WHO said his is Jill's got what to thought Marlins who will be looked like I said well I really didn't have a particular view about that anyway. But she seems absolutely fine and indeed she was as were the other actors in that uneconomical routes who played Mama. cousy was also very good listeners. Marty who played Mr Jail it'll be massacre was was was very good. They will I think really really excellent actors and I think that they they interpreted the characters correctly. I think that they they paved as I would imagine. Those characters would would behave so as far as I'm concerned they shake-up top marks the production Monks that punch view. It also respected the ethos of the books which was very very important for my punch view. Because I didn't want and the story of Marmots Way to be sensationalized I didn't want to include any material that would be inappropriate for full all the The the portrayal of the country and indeed People didn't but swan were obviously concerned about how their country would be portrayed in this film which was the first time that a major film was to be done and a series after about about their country so lot was at stake and and they they did it with was great perspective and I think sensitivity. I think they needed to jail says in the book and the first book a mechanic mechanic cannot be a poet but my reading of the book. Is that an flags after that was that sometimes he is the most poetic character in the novels. And I wondered wondered if you did that intentionally will. That's very interesting that you should say that. Because I think he is quite a bird character I hadn't I hadn't intended intended him to be because he didn't see himself out he.
