Christmas Do's, Bonuses and F-Bombs with Dr. Gia Wiggins

"And in the best hr person. I've ever met in my life. That is the sweetest thing i've ever heard this week. Get with a bad reputation. Be sincerely thank you for coming on the show. Today is my absolute pleasure as always so we were going to plan on talking about holiday. Do's and don'ts and so. I went back and listened to episode fifteen of cheers to business and it was katie. And i and we did holiday. Do's and don'ts and we pretty much took an article off the internet and just tore to pieces. Basically about do's and don'ts what are some good holiday dues. Well i've got a lot of holiday. Dues for businesses. And you know. I think that are good. You know in general you know right now. My focus is gratitude. It's all that. I've spent a lot of time Just being really thankful and reflecting over two thousand and twenty and all of the fun things that have happened and not so fun things that have happened. And what was the most important thing to me so right now you know when i focus on gratitude of course grateful for clients. I'm grateful for great friendships and alliances. I'm grateful for you. Of course you know that. Tell you that all the time just to call me sweet. I very grateful for you. But i'm also grateful for the lessons that we've learned in two thousand and twenty. I'm grateful that businesses have learned how the pivot in two thousand and twenty and how to deal with things that they've ignored for meany save learn how to pandemic proof their businesses and i can't help but to truly believe that the ability to work through some of those things to bring innovation in their preparing them for what's to come twenty twenty one twenty twenty two and i think the businesses are going to be stronger as a result as we lead thousand and twenty whatever the heck is banned by by no see. I don't wanna do that because my name's karen and my sister's name is katrina and we've had so much fun with our names all over the internet so yeah thank you very much to all you people. So by no person no-name person You actually did the first covid show with me when the pandemic hit you did and you know what we talked about on that show. I bring up. All the time is found a way to reinvent found a different need. Sorry and i am grateful that it forced as painful as it was short term pain long-term game but people have either that or they went out of business they either were forced into doing things differently and it was at the time but is probably a good thing in the long term. Yeah i think so too. I think so too. You have to sometimes win. There's a disruption in the market and they're always disruptions in the marco actions correct and. You have to make a decision. You're either gonna pay attention to it or not. You know i liken it to you know. Let's say for example a bakery. That doesn't you know have gluten free options if you're a bakery that decides not to have one gluten free option. You're literally putting your hands. Your eyes and your blindfold in yourself to the changes in the market understanding that if you focus on that one thing and to publicize it you're going to increase business exponentially. Everybody's like a for gluten free or sugar free or kito desserts and so by taking a look at what the market is doing and making a decision that you're going to run your business a little bit differently. Our offer something net previously. Nobody cared about but now everybody cares about it. I mean you could really changed the path and the longevity of your business if your business does not evolve and change it will die and it should it should nobody wanted anymore is changed to change with it and that is so hard because i think people talk the talk but don't walk the walk the need to do this. I need to do that and then don't do it. Yeah it's out of your comfort zone you know. Life's about choices. Did somebody do this to us. Well it doesn't really matter. It happened so do something. You got to choose what you want to do. That's exactly what's happened. So i'm i'm excited for those businesses. That have discovered you know a new way of doing things and they are doing fun stuff that they've never done before and you can see the spark i shared with you before. I'm a part of a businessman mentor group and a mentor. Couple of companies and even long established companies. That are doing something new and fresh. I mean the spark in their eye. I'm like a bit. That was the spark. When you first open a business. I mean and to cheer and to listen to you. Know them you know sharing things and need to have fee. But it is so exciting. I mean it just energizes me. So that's what. I've been surrounded myself with this year. Yeah it's different because now we're looking

Apple Releases Revised Version of iOS 14.2 for iPhone 12

"Let's begin with apple. News apple release fourteen point two but he was a interesting released of this on the past but he was specifically for the iphone. Twelve meany and fixing text messages on a couple of other box so they have done these days and i think part of the reason they have done. This is to avoid leaking This is not the first time they needed it. But pay if you got a an iphone twelve meaning make sure that you update to the the last of the reid version of this Our next one is About talking about features of Big mac os or and you know now that they've been using it more Even dad is still is not my main machine. I'm continue impress of how well certain things work. In comparison to catalina again. I'm mike book is not mike main driver. My main drivers pat but there is still things that i do in in the macbook. An ibm impressed. How my old. I have an old mike. Macaire two thousand thirteen because there is no reason to upgraded but dad now having the same messages between the ipad and macbook. Dad has been nice because it was something that you know a lot of times you get down and get a message from just go. Pick another device because he was so annoying how that works so there are things like that that has worked incredibly well Interestingly enough i was really looking forward for the ipods switching between the devices and dot has turned to be a nightmare it may be. Because i have too many of them. I don't know but a lot of times. I am on a coal on the and then i moved my head or change device on suddenly i lose the call that has been annoying their ways to fix it you can tell them basically disable they switching but it was something that i really was looking forward. The romantic idea of yes and grabbed the other device and change out the medically am. I really didn't thought about yet. But what what when you're using multiple devices in the same call That do not work as well as i planning my mind our next Item is creek for the regency talking about running native window on the aim. One and on the new max chipset then us. On the reports we have seen has meaning credible On this chipset and it makes sense. I mean they integrate everything they made it in a really nice way and even the reports we have seen on his speech on on the mac sunday comparisons between the old macbooks macbook pro with the new ones are really incredible on so many ways so there is a lot of people wondering can i put windows in this thing and so far you cannot. I was reading over the weekend. Somebody ready port i version of it nut deficiency microsoft version but as for the for the rugged said it's up to microsoft and base it on what we have seen on the news lately about other companies looking to get into this arm. I may see us a possibility that they really jump into this one. I'm i'm skeptical. I think that you know eventually you know someone will make microsoft windows at least version. Ten work on the m one chips The reality though is that apple is I even heard linus torvalds the progenitor of the olympics colonel which we all know is running a people say lennox. But it's really the open source operates on top of that and the you know the whole notion of the m one chips is that apple is moving into this more island unto itself architecture creating a a privacy wall around their entire ecosystem and they're only letting in those who they want to let in and So i'm really curious whether or not this is really there Shot across the bow to all suffer developers. You'll all you know folks. Generally that they're going to be controlling this. And if you wanna play with them you've got to play by their rules and they do it now. 'cause they're making the chip they're making you know they're making everything So yeah. I'm i'm not particularly interested in running windows on a mac anyway but i think that you know seeing folks kind of bend the rules and making it work will be interesting to watch.

HomePod Mini Begins Arriving to Customers

"Of sen pro online when you visit. Pb dot com slash talking so the last big new tech product of the year is set for release this league. It's called the apple podcast meany. It doesn't sound as good as the new google nest speaker or even the fourth generation amazon echo. But you know what it doesn't matter because the speaker is small it's cute it's inexpensive and it's way more useful way more useful than the google nest. Let me tell you about it. I'm jefferson graham. You're listening to talking tech. So here's what you need to know. The mini is way smaller in size than both the new echo and google nest audio and while it doesn't sound as great as either them. It is way smaller after all again. People aren't gonna care how about adding a new homepod mini with that new iphone. What do you say so this is a really useful speaker for anyone living in the apple ecosystem and it makes the siri personal assistant way more competitive with alexa and the google assistant most importantly you don't have to worry about apple's speaker. Spying on you as apple has different privacy policy than google and amazon. The company is not in the business of selling personalized ads. So it's less likely to be recording you in storing the audio on its servers which is something that as you know. Google and amazon both do apple. I entered the smart speaker market in two thousand eighteen with the original homepod. It was priced at a hefty. Three hundred forty nine dollars which meant that. Most people ignored it. It sounded great but nobody cared because it did very little. And it was dwarfed by sales of the echo and what was called the google home now called nest audio with like under a one percent market share but three things that you can do with the new homepod mini that. I think you'll really like number one dictate text messages to send a contacts now. Both amazon speakers and google speakers can't do that. Can you believe it. If you lose your iphone which is not an uncommon problem. The homepod will send a tone to the phone. That won't stop until you find it. The best feature of the mall ditch the tv soundbar by two homepod. Minis connect them to your tb via the apple. Tv streaming box for tv sounded great for music as a replacement to the other speakers. Not discreet but as a tv speaker cliff not be happier. Apples advantage. Is that through apple. Tv you get access to a wider array of streaming services than with amazon amazon. Doesn't offer hbo max. Amazon doesn't peacock and because tv sound is so tinian nature having the audio by the side of the bed to listen instead of having the sound. Come from the other side of the room from the soundbar. Tease or tv speaker is a really nice home theater. Like addition and it's a no brainer. I listened to snakes. Hiss in the old raiders of the lost ark movie. That frankly just wouldn't hurt if it was going through those little speakers now caveats many of the mini music features touted on. Apple's website will require a ten dollar monthly subscription apple music. So asking siri to play drake playlist or great songs from the nineties. Won't get you very far unless you do. Subscribe beyond apple music. The mini plays music from pandora iheartradio in tune in radio missing spotify youtube music amazon music in many others. So which one to buy the homepod the echo or the nest it depends on which ecosystem you feel. Comfortable in the nest to myers is the best sounding of the three. But as good as that is. Do you wanna google device in your home listening to and recording your conversations. Now google amazon says it only does this when it. Here's the wake word but any conversation. That casually mentioned google or alexa can be recorded stored in mind. If you don't subscribe to apple music you're going to be comfortable with the smart speaker. That's optimized for that service. Are you willing to switch them. Spotify are you in amazon home. Like i am with amazon fire. Tv streaming perhaps a fire tv edition television where everything is about that a word in that case. You'd probably want the new

Is that particular Chin from from your teacher? Is that from? Yeah. That's more melodic tune. Sometimes, we do chanting just very straightforward but I figured I'd do the Little Nicer version for for the rookies out there that may have never heard it. Might enjoy. Doing maybe we start with just a little bit about the meany of starting with like like Mandela for you did this John and you tell us a little bit about that because I'm sure as out there that that very interested in what you're doing with your hands. Right. So it's symbolizing the world you make the world you're purifying the world it a perfect place and you're setting up here. That's four continents floor directions in the mountain meadow the highest mountain, and there you envisioned a perfect pure realm and menu, fill it up with incense and flowers, and every offering that you can think of everything that has ever made you happy you kind of you offer it up to your teachers good Dharma Sanga and also your you know your afflictions things that may be bring you pain suffering you just offer it up, give it away, purify it all in making making everything. The way it should be. Wow. So you're really using your mind in that practice. Of course, you're saying something we'd be voice in you've got your body. You're also really using your mind when you're saying those brands with that digitalization. So absolutely, and I think you know one of the most beautiful offerings I've ever heard was an ocean of flowers you. You could never afford that many. But when you're doing this practice, you can offer things that you don't have. You can walk by you know. The diamond district offer all the jewelry there. Every beautiful thing you've ever seen things that you wanted for yourself that maybe you can't afford at least you can put it in that digitalization offered up to all beings you know in beings. And Use It as a as a release that have been attachment. Fantastic you're using your imagination. You don't necessarily have to own object your for. Only objects that you don't exist that Don exists are objects that are intangible. I can offer the laughter of your children or something like that. So it can really go go wild with your imagination as to what you think are the most beautiful things Yup I think in this case, going wild with your imagination is encouraged, right? Yes. You should. You should absolutely because it it's essential as you as you go on in practice to be able to develop your imagination because you'll you'll have to find yourself. Putting yourself in situations where your imagination is what's going to bring it to the next level of your practice I'm imagining that will imagining didn't mean to years that would I'm imagining? We'll be coming back to this would imagination out quite a bit. Did The Sun Creek you tell us what that is all about going for refuge is a Buddhist yield. You're going for refuge to the Buddha, Dharma, on the song the good is. Being all beings? Dharma. The teachings, the truth with the on Songa the collection, not just monks nuns but everyone around you that is going to help you achieve this goal. By the goodness of the deeds that I do and giving in the rest meaning to six projections of. Giving and morality patients, concentration wisdom giving morality patients, ethics, concentration, and wisdom of by practicing these things. May I become a Buddha not just for myself but for the sake of all living beings South intention. Yes. So Is Interesting. So Buddha dominance sauna. So you know for you before the acting career before the music business which will get to there was Buddhism right that came Beckham before the acting I think and I was wondering you grew up. Christian MRI. And I was wondering growing up Christian what was it that? How'd you end up Madonna breakage what drew you to the Buddha? Question. Is. It still boggles now it doesn't Boggle I. Am very lucky I grew up in a loving Christian household. So wasn't one of those you know fire Brimstone type situations might my grandmother was wonderful Christian? My my aunt is a is A. Wonderful Wonderful Beautiful Lady she is what it sounds like. You know it all intents and purposes and I have many wonderful Christian friends and family that that are amazing. But for me I felt like there was a point in my life maybe was a certain age of coming to being where certain things just didn't make sense to me anymore or or I. Felt that I was being drawn in another way and I wasn't sure what that way was. It wasn't a rejection of something but more a seeking more something else something that that just was sort of calling to say. So I. Couldn't quite out what it was and I remember my mother had this shelves. Books From College. There's one book in Religions of the World Textbook as a as a good place to start as any. and. So it's just kind of like starting through going through all the religions of the world literally starting with animism and and native American religions which brought me back to thinking of my own heritage and things that we learned from our grandmothers are on tees than you know, herbs and prayers that are not in any books or dances, or you know traditions, words that that are that I. Thought were Spanish that are not for example, and I started going to college and learning about that learning about old medicine learning about all different not just my try all the tribes of the Americas and I really was a great and still is a great experience. Great part of my life of the day I was still kept feeling that there was more and in my thirteen fourteen. So. I started going to hardcore shows New York hardcore scene, and there was a big Christian of consciousness movement bands like WanNa wait and shelter and and Chroma is and bad brains singing about this other esoteric type things and and you know the Christian of monks were always there hanging out singing hotter Krishnan and handing out food and stuff. So of course, I was checking it out and and there are some things that kind of you know paying some interest for me but then again, it was a lot of. Things that weren't also clicking. So know go back to the book the Book of the word yet it again. kind of thumbing through it and I see Dow is and I'm like reading through it. It's very logical. It's straightforward. There is no puppet masters like. Extra beings, there's no like get off the pay money you don't have. There's no strings attached. It's cause-effect cause-effect cause-effect that if you do a long enough, be will happen if you one plus one is to the softest thing in the world can cut through the hardest giving with time things like that and that kind of really appealed to me it was very grounded and very focused than. Kind of removed that, which may be I needed for awhile removed that. Mystical magical element at made it more about how to fix yourself now

The Case for Police Abolition

The Nod

The Case for Police Abolition

"At. The time of this recording one thousand seventeen people in the US have been shot and killed by police this past year, and as the numbers continue to grow. It's got meany questioning why we're even need cops in the first place, but the question of polishing the police also makes a lot of people nervous so today we're going straight to the source in talking to an actual abolitionist. Bill Fina Y'all on. It's an important conversation that you don't want to miss. This is the nod. We've heard it all before. Give Cops Body Cams hold them accountable, cautious need diversity and bias training. We need community policing black police. We need Brown police, but as the years roll by an efforts at reform are showing no signs of stopping the brutal violence against black people in this country, a different call gaining traction is the call to abolish the prison industrial complex, which is made up of prisons, policing and surveillance all forms contrary to what a lot of. Of people believe this isn't a new school. Of Thought, it's been around since the eighties, and it's been embraced by people all over the world. Much of what we know about it. Today has been studied practice and built upon three black women. We have to mention Angela Davis Ruth Wilson, Gilmore and Mariam Kaba Today. We're joined by bill. Fina Y'all want a Baltimore based restorative justice practitioner. Who writes about abolition and how to practice it in our community? It'll pheno. Thank, you so much for being here today. It's awesome. Have you thank you? Thank you for having me so abolition. Is Abolition essentially what we talk about admission we're saying is that a world cannot just without the physical presence of police in prisons, but a world where we all have, our needs met in a way that we do not have to commit the crimes that laid us in prison, and with policing right, and so abolition forces us to complete your frame how we think about the concept of prisons and lease, and to be honest about the history of it prisons. Prisons were created as an alternative to slavery. It says so and the thirteen th amendment, and so when we look if that that violence and genocide history of policing prisons, abolition says it's not possible for us to have world rabies dynamics exist so I'm sure we've all seen a lot of the back and forth in the media, and even just an online conversations about what's reformist versus what is abolitionist. What sorts of things are absolutely out of the question or Believed that we can have rover prisons and policing exist. We just have to make it better. And abolitionist believed that is not possible behalf to completely get rid of it and create new systems and structures. How did you come to fruition? Personally had become part of your life identified. The woman is came to woman is during college was definitely my sophomore. Year of college and I thought begins to stand what it means to exist as A. A black woman in this world I understood this system is structured. That are against US I think a lot of people don't understand that the reform to slavery with prisons. The reform to slave catchers was police, and so when you have stopped with that truth as a woman as as a former refugee as an immigrant to this country will hold, I, experience, it was not possible for me to say I love blackness and not become an abolitionist. Something else. That's near and dear to your heart, and also the work that you do is the story of Keith Davis Junior talked to us a little bit about Keith and his story so keep Davis Junior. Is a twenty eight year old black man for Baltimore, who was shot at? Times by the Baltimore Police Department in June of Twenty fifteen. He's being accused and they're saying that it gun was founded in Keith was connected to a murder. In March he was sentenced to fifty years, and after five years in five rows, Amish. It's been an ongoing case that five years WWLTV's dedicated to. Always bring her into the space. Kelly Davis has four beautiful children and Khloe Amari and Jaden and his case is so connected to what was happening in Baltimore after Twenty fifteen after the murder of Freddie Gray talk to me a bit about how keeps life and story relates specifically to your Abolition Work Keith case is connected to abolition one, if forces us to see kids humanity beyond what he did as a child chief, interaction with the criminal justice system started very early, and what we know is that it was a result of all of the conditions that came with Keith birth his stories parents. Parents his poverty, and so forth, and so as a result of that chief found himself funneled into a system. That once you've been in there. It's easier to keep coming back. If Selah commits a crime, we have to ask ourselves if the necessities of somebody is not being met, and instead were thrown them in a cage cage is actually more violent and transformed into a even more violent person with Keith case what we've seen has been a blatant disregard for any kind of laws, any kind of good faith and what we saw for the past five years is lies and lies and lies and confirms. That meet cannot possibly rehabilitate a system that has no

"I actually believe everybody deserves a a second chance. I really fundamentally do and I believe good people can do bad things I think we're all capable of it and I respect those people who admit to so what they did and then they pay their price and then they have another chance you could have that you really could but you're going to dying jail. If you keep denying that you did certain crimes you know that right. I know I believe in my heart that what the coot will come out and I believe that when the evidence comes out I will be exonerated and and right for both this crime Jeremy.

"In the market which is meany occupied by hedge fund and mutual funds deals this thing to bear in mind final point a lot of the money that is currently in factor investment is coming from active strategies so you'll find some money that was actively manage moving to factor so it's not really changing do overall overall amount of alpha strategies in the market and so from from that perspective i would say yes there's a lot of talk about factors but there's not that much flows when you think about active position versus benchmark so one of the things that we like to avoid as investors may cause were just chicken but it's just taking extreme view and so there's no reason investor has to go on value or on momentum in so how how do you sort of teach people to understand that you could use these in concert with one another in diversified through them and unfortunately diversity means you're always gonna say sorry but that these walkers complement each other right so yes as you know diversification is always challenging i think one way and that's challenging but it means you cannot always by the top performing assets i'm sure everyone will love their adviser to always recommend to them the best performing asset diversification is not a strategy that is going to be necessarily the highest performer in every year but you also know the magic compounding the magic of compounding is that if you are diversified you voted losses and so that means that you are more able to capture the upside in the market in the long run that's a very powerful concept especially for investors have influence flows in outflows into these strategies so in this case having a balanced mix of factors and this i would put value momentum quality all the obvious ones rules only is a good one so lovo you mentioned that you weren't sure what oval works and i've seen it so i work with institutional investors now for close to twenty years and i've seen you aversion to leverage you're version to leverage means that many investors are looking for high returns but they cannot use leverage so they have to buy the highest risk stocks in the highest risk strategies which pushes down the sharp ratio of these strategies if you are able to use leverage you're able to take strategies at by themselves out lower risk but where they risk adjusted returns is greater.

I last time a our I said Meany me because of our weather. Apologizing for calling you Meany Meany. Okay. I'll accept the apology. Thank you cakes. You said you've been called far worse though. Right. I mean, I have been. A few years ago. It's like being elected deal with ruining a lot of people's parties. Weddings and stuff like that weatherwise. But yet you still keep coming back, right? I'm talking. I I like what I do. That's good. That's great. And and I know you got good news for tomorrow. But what about today today's is going to be a cloudy day? I mean, we're we're right now, we're up into the mid forties. But as I look at the radar out to the west, we're seeing some some very light rain, and I think that that's really the nature of this beast, and we thought we chatted last hour that sometime in the eight thirty nine o'clock windows, probably when we start to see some of this later in I still think that that's going to be right within the next forty five minutes, or so, but it will be very very light. I think we get probably a few hundreds of an inch of rain total out of this whole thing. The bulk of it's going to go by to our south but from now through mid to late afternoon. It's just going to be cloudy with the very light rain that occasionally will actually be heavy enough to wet the pavement of the time. It'll be selected payment will start to dry out than eventually just all goes away late afternoon and skies will clear for the last hour or two before sunset on nice. And then, but it's going to be chilly tonight, though. Right. It will be still chilly air mass air pressure to our north is going to deliver this chillier Massa. We'll get. Of freezing. I suspect most of the outlying areas are going to be down to the upper twenties, which means frost is a possibility and even a hard free. So if you've got any plants that you've set outside of the porch, and like that you might want to protect them bring them inside for night because it is going to be pretty cool tonight. But tomorrow tomorrow nice day, not quite to normal. I think our normal high should be in the lower sixty but fifty eight Dow take that in all this. We get some sunshine. There's probably going to be an increase in clouds though in the afternoon. That's from the next troublemaker that will bring us some brain at some point later tomorrow night into Tuesday morning that goes away, the clouds persist effect. I think once the clouds come back in tomorrow night there with us all the way through Thursday night into Friday and from time to time we're gonna have to deal with the rain like I said that first batch comes in sometime later Monday night and last Tuesday morning. We'll probably have another one that will come through sometime Wednesday later today, and then some more shower activity on Thursday. All righty. All right. Well, listen, Joe. Thank you very much. We appreciate that. And we will check back with you in about an hour. Thanks so much. Joe lumber from AccuWeather and we're still waiting for the.

Michael Cohen faces accusations of lying at testimony

"We found out today you remember Trump's personal lawyer Michael Cohen, testified before congress and basically gave nothing. No, new information. Just testified. The Trump is a big Meany in a really bad guy will now it's come out that Michael Cohen met privately with the house intelligence committee, chairman democrat, Adam Schiff for ten hours to prepare for that testimony four separate occasions, ten hours of testimony Schiff who lives in California represents a district in California, flew out to New York to meet with Michael Cohen. Now, you have to wonder, okay. What what was he doing was? He I mean, obviously, he was coaching the witness. This is not good. That's not a good look for Democrats. Why did they do that? Because they knew it was going to come up empty, and apparently Adam shifts not a very good coach because ten hours of coaching later. Michael Cohen still looks like a schmuck on Capitol Hill. Still doesn't give you anything. So desperate. So now now they're launching investigations into the finances and the business and this and that it just looks so desperate because the the clock ran out for them. They said, okay, we're going to this Russia thing we're going to go as hard as we can with Russia. You can't go forever. Eventually people need you to put up or shut up you have to produce results. And now they've got nothing now the dog ate their homework, and it's a beautiful sight to behold, Michael Cohen, e we know he lied to congress. He was convicted of lying to congress. He's the first convicted liar to congress to be called back to testify before congress. And we know he lied there. Again, we know that he lied about not wanting a job in the White House. It's a matter of public record Saudi job in the White House. We know that he lied about not seeking part, and he did seek apart and matter of public record. They just end up with egged on their face. Being rebuked reprimanded by federal judge who has a good sense of Justice here, by the way, I hope Paul manafort's still gets pardoned. Not because what he did wasn't wrong. I'm of course, it was wrong. He's a lobbyist lobbyists tend to work with pretty crooked institutions and do kind of crooked things. But do you does anyone really believe Paul Manafort would be imprisoned right now, if he had not committed the real crime of helping Donald Trump become president, that's the crime. That's what they they knew that that was what he was being investigated what he's being prosecuted for and this judge I think in very fair way actually carrying forth. Justice said we're not going to throw away the rest of this guy's life. Because you don't like that he helped a Republican win the White House.

I would like to have ideally a bigger display, and so we sort of I proposed the idea of what if I what if apple announces a MEK Meany these like the summer, I was talking to see villains. Like what if? Apple announces amac Meany, and I could probably end up with a new desk. New four K display, amac with team would be nice and need to you know, people management done. Right. And I could sell my pro. And so I came into these event hoping that apple would actually also want nounce their own display, but apple is not doing that. Which is fine. I'm going to buy this from somebody else. So I'm going to buy a MAC mini. I still not sure what configuration of wanna get. Ideally, I liked to future proof these machine as much as kick and a hassle. This again, very soon. I'm in the I'm in the market for four k or five k display recommendations, ideally, I wouldn't want to get the one because I think he looks really ugly with a black plastic around it.

"Would he in today's nomenclature? Be gay? Maybe I don't answer that. You know. Do I know? Yes, he's gay. Yes, yes. I think he was also in love with Owen Meany, but fitting to his generation, his age and the time. He would never have set to love with a boy kills his own mother. Yes, and I think the complexity of that is vast, and but if it were a story set today, it would have to have been very differently handled, but there was well because the would be the necessity upon Johnny Wheelwright at least as an older man to knowledge is feelings to come out of the closet so to speak. But given the time I thought I could be more faithful to men of that generation and never let him aknowledge this even to himself a lost. Click one. I enjoyed the the political, rushing it in the novel, especially what could follow the country in the same could follow the individuals colledge just push you to project a little on something that own writes in his die right at the end. He says this country is headed toward over-simplification. Yeah. Yes, you have to remember that. I'm pretty slow processor as writer. Those things that made me angry or upset me as a child or as a teenager or a young man, whether they were personal things or whether they were like the Vietnam war political things. My tendency as writer is to wait. My tendency is don't write about this thing when you're this close to it. I didn't start writing this novel until almost twenty years after the war and bit nam. And the reason for that is I was so upset about those years and that time and the friends are Louis that I thought, well, I've got to let a little distance happen so that I can know what still makes me angry and differentiate those things from the things I after twenty years recognized. Okay. You just have to let that go. I don't think there would have been a note of humor in pref. Reference Meany if I had written this novel in the nineteen seventies, but it wasn't published until eighty nine. It was a long time after my moment in sixty five. When I was on the verge, I thought of leaving for Vietnam and it didn't happen. I think that's the the key to me is is is being patient as writer about those things that you know our angering or upsetting. Don't write about them whether they're political, personal sexual about your own dysfunctional situation as child, whatever it is if it's still affecting you, you're probably not ready to write about it because you, you can't very well. Then see it from the telephoto lens and make distinctions between. In the things that are funny and the things that are horrible if you're standing this close to it, it's all horrible, right? It's all witching is worthwhile. Well, maybe not to eat. But in the case of of writing something that's disturbing to you. Yeah, it's a good idea to wait John having thank you very much. Indeed.

"On BBC. Radio, four. John Irving is with us talking about a prayer for Owen Meany. Every time I've read the book, there are parts that I laugh out loud as I wonder as to say it's a terribly funny boot isn't ten. We've been having a extremely sort of deep conversation, but even the, it's hilarious, speak for yourself. Do you as a writer laugh out loud while you're writing the book? And do you conceive in part at least in part as a coming novel? I have to say that I think of all of my novels as comic novels you can write with a lot of intention -ality. You can construct a story of your own design. You can give characters the names you choose. You can make happen anything you want to make happen, but you have as a writer, no control over whether you are funny or not. If you're not funny, you can't be funny. Ever. And if you have a naturally comic voice, it will emerge even in the most horrible moments and you can't help it even when you're telling and essentially melancholic and sad story. When people ask me his voice, how does it sound? It's not just the voice I imitate what line of Owens do. I always say, when I'm asked to imitate his voice, he our mother has the best breasts of all the mother. Yeah, he he says a lot of things, but that's the liner always give. That's the only thing I can remember. One of the what's always strikes me about your books. And this one in particular is that you have such extraordinary events in them cows coming downstairs with headmasters at the whale mother's getting killed by baseball's and so on. You kind of somehow neutralize by full telling many of them talk about many times before they actually happened. Yes. Jim said, we know from the off that, oh, in the toe in kills the mother in the first few patriot doesn't. She isn't actually dead until quite in. Yes, it's true. That's very good observation. I think if you're aware that the events of your story are stretching credibility. You have to make an effort to make the incredible believable, and I do that in two ways. One of the ways you can diffuse introduce is just tell flatly, say right out. He. Always limped because he lost the toes of his left foot to a lawn mower accident when he was child which turned out to be a fortunate thing, but I'll get to that or something. And then when one gets to the event, it is both less peculiar and spectacular than it might have been if you'd walked into the middle of the accident. You see what I mean? So one of the ways you diffuse the unlikely is to just sort of foretell it or foreshadow it in a totally deadpan way. Oh, well, yeah, that happened and I'll get to that. That's one way the other way is if the detail is indelible enough, if you make the detail like the shot, the basketball shot, which I hope that in the case of most readers, you're, you're sensing a level of exasperation. You're saying good, not this again. I mean, this is insane. It's boring. Nothing happens. It's a basketball, but what's going to happen as a result of them practicing that is really an extraordinary event by the time you get there, I think I help you to believe it that. Okay, you've seen enough of the basketball now. It's grenade and we know you, I'm we know the something in it. This question here, vivid imagery so important in this book to retain Jones, mother's memory. You use a bright red dress and a tailor's dummy and Tillerson me of Kerr's another novels by you.

But my first child was born in March of nineteen sixty five and my commanding officer said, you idiot, you're out and I hadn't read the fine print. Now sixty five war was still relatively young.

"And of course, what happens to comes about as a result over an accident of hitting that baseball in a particular way, at the particular moment, which was no accident where it will indeed would, but where the mother of his friend happens to be turning round waving to the man in the crowd who turns out to be the real father of his friend. Women are badly behaved at sporting event. If you've noticed, but I, you know, I really don't like to go to sporting events with women because they don't watch what's going on and and in sports with bowls that can be dangerous. Right?

We've talked about a voice to physical countries and he's shortness and those tunnels be crucially of use the end of the book which came I was it the physical characteristics or was it the end incidents for which those of useful? He was always in my mind, small, the voice by the time I got to the first sentence obviously by the time I had made my backward motion from last sentence, which is a prayer for him. Ogodo pleases, give him back. She'll keep asking you that was always the end, both his size and his voice, our why those Vietnamese refugee children listened to him. This, why they do it. He says, so everything has reason in his lexicon, but I'll tell you exactly what began the book the idea of the book before I knew a lessons I was sitting round in my hometown, southern New Hampshire was one Christmas time, and people who'd gone off to university and gotten married and had kids and all we, we were just got together people in town who've come back home to see their mom and dad or something like that. And so there were a bunch of people my age. I think the Tom were been over for a couple of years and someone said, well, there's so and so he died there and I contributed my name's and somebody said the name of a boy that I said, oh, I didn't know him. It was Russell somebody I set up. I guess I didn't know him. They said, oh, yeah, you did. I said, no, I didn't know. I'm sorry, died Vietnam, but I didn't know him. And this guy said you used to pick him up. Buzz ankles and shake him souls. Money fell out of his pocket. And I said, one of the stupidest things I've ever said in my life, I said that. Hughes, too small to go to fit. And my friend who is sitting beside me, said Irving, he probably grew. And I went home and that night I wrote down to myself. What if he didn't. Now I didn't even begin to write that book for ten years after that Christmas, I was home, see my parents, but I remember that impetus remember that beginning because so many novels of mine begin with a, what? If idea, Yoel what if this little boy, I remembered torturing in Sunday school. What if he stayed the same and Owen is not killed in Vietnam, but he's killed because of it.

"But because he is the reason I believe in God, I am a Christian because of Owen Meany I make no claims to have a life in Christ or with Christ, and certainly not for Christ, which I've heard some zealots claim. I'm not very sophisticated in my knowledge of the Old Testament, and I've not read the New Testament since my Sunday school days, except for those passages that I hear read aloud to me when I go to church, I'm somewhat more familiar with the passages from the bible that appear in the book of Common Prayer. I read my prayer book often and my bible only on holy days. The prayer book is so much more orderly. Orderly. This is the voice of John Wheelwright who is not Ator whose mother is killed in the first few pages of the book by a fantastic shot on a baseball diamond by young Owen Meany who hits it amidships and it strikes her and she dies. We begin the book with a death, and we end it with a death. What fascinates you to clearly about the relationship of children to the parents, though those whom they know and those whom they don't know, you didn't do your own father until you were quite advanced in years or. Yeah, quite advanced. And by the time I learned any significant detail about him from two brothers and sister. I didn't know I had he'd already been dead about five years. So for significant time in my life, I knew very little about him. I was born with his name and because no one would talk about him. I didn't like having his name because I imagined as a child that. Is someone who knew him must have been trying to protect me from something about him that he must have been a very bad guy if no one wanted to talk to me about him. I mean, that's just what I imagined I made it up. I because I've nobody told me otherwise, you make things up. Let's job this question here. I'm intrigued with the voice of our in Meany which seems almost like a character in its own right in the book. And I'm sure that everybody can hear his voice in their heads when they read the book. And yet you convey that only by the use of upper case lettering in in the text, and how do you do that. I want to match that. I would give owing means dialogue, those red letters that you must know from so-called red letter editions of the bible. So you can be something through the New Testament and everything Christ said is in red ink, right? It stands out. Well, that was my first thought, but that was unrealistic. It would have been a very expensive publising prospect, especially especially for smaller countries and in translation. I also thought twice about it because I did not want as the author to say that I believed Owen Meany was a second coming of Christ, and it seemed to me that I was pushing that envelope too hard if I had expense. Notwithstanding, if I had given him read letters for his diabled, I chose the capital letters because they seem to represent an. Irritation which his voice also causes not only mildly. I mean, not only does he speak in a kind of rock dust full Seto. Many people who've grown up in granite quarries or around them have damaged vocal chords because of the fine particles of rock dust that gets into their apparatus. Realistically, that's probably all this wrong with him. Looking at him in a a non spiritual on supernatural way. He grew up in a granite quarry. There's a realistic explanation for why his Voice's wrecked. It's not only the sound of his voice that's irritating, what's especially irritating to most of us is anyone who's always right and tells you. So there's really few more irritating quality, especially when let only four foot eight inch. Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Then then someone who's right all the time. He's a little squirt.

"Hello, and welcome to a book club encounter with an Ovallis who calls himself a carpenter building stories. John Irving became a fulltime right at after the success of the world according to garp in the late seventies. And since then he's become the kind of writer about whom people always ask. When's the next one coming at the novel were talking about today with as usual couple of dozen readers sitting alongside the author is a prayer for Owen Meany a story stamped with John Irving style and serve and set in his home territory of New Hampshire. It starts with a terrible accident at a baseball game and ends with Owens death in a parody of his favorite short in the basketball court and tells of the effect that this strange young man, he doesn't get beyond his twenties has on everyone around him. He'll so cut his with him the belief that he's the agent of God's work on earth and in the. Vil in a way he is, you'd have to look a long way to find a character outwardly unappealing and so compelling. One of his most disturbing traits, for example, is his high pitched voice unsettling from the very start of the book. John Irving, welcome to book club. Thank you. I knew taste that one of the books that had a big effect in you was great expectations. Great expectations also begins with the story of a boy and his relationship with his family. And that seems to be something not just in this book, but in many of you books that moves you and drives you on. Yes, it was one of the things that attracted me as a teenager to dickens, but the other element in dickens that attracted me as a wood be writer is that as a novelist, he is very theatrical. I knew the theater and loves the theater as a little boy before I was old enough for a sophisticated enough to read novels as difficult as those great nineteenth century novels, I really couldn't read dickens or hardy or horse on or Melville until I was a teenager, but my mom was a prompter in a local, amateur Seattle society. So as a kid, I spent a lot of time backstage with the actors. And before I imagined myself as a writer, I mentioned that I might like to be an actor on stage and there is something that all of dickens that has a staged. And dramatic and how childhood informs who the adult is going to be. And that a child growing up hasn't been told or doesn't know, or is mistaken about concerning his own family. Let me open it up. Let's have our first question. The first line is remarkable. Many classic novels are also memorable for their first lines and own meanings. No exception. Was that a conscious choice or just where you happen to start the story I sentences are perhaps the most conscious choice of all the sentences in all my novels. Because as you may know, I begin a book by writing the last sentence I the first couple of times it happened. I thought it was an accident. I thought it was a kind of odd habit that I surely one day would outgrow, but the last sentences kept coming. So by the time I got to a preference in Meany or which was my seventh novel. I was very much aware that this was the way I wrote and the process of writing that last sentence first and then working my way back.
