Do we know what it was made for. Tv for feels like sci fi channel or or one of those but It has like those movies can overdo the special effects. It's just distracting. Because it's really didn't have the budget to be doing all this stuff. This is kind of their wheelhouse. They're like you know what we really need to hold a whole bunch of them. But we're gonna have butterflies just that an entire village go handle. We're going to have some butterflies and they didn't wanna make too many like you said they. They say to their wheelhouse.

We find ourselves in Fungal foods are then new types of ways that we can grow to proteinaceous delicious meat substitutes.

There are also ways that the climate change might make things worse in conjunction with the funky. I'm so some fungal. Pathogens of plans for example might be able to move into new areas when climate change and whole swathes. The forest might become vulnerable to fungal pathogens. It's already happening. Killing off huge areas of forest which decomposed by other types of funky and lots of crt will then be emitted into the atmosphere. So it's not as straightforward story about fungal. Save us Fungi startlingly Ingenious opportunists and ask things change and they will be able to move into new niches. And maybe sometimes that will be good for us and sometimes good Do you have any party fox for us back as we go forward any advice any bits of wisdom that you have gleaned from this. My ceo madness. Well you neil. One thing. I i've often thought about because he's fungal networks or astonishing and raise all sorts of questions about highlight works. I'm one of the things that's been interesting recently. Maybe you'll be able to tell me a bit more about the cosmic web. The very structure of the universe is now thought to be made up a big filaments of gas in galaxies arranged in clusters linked. Together in this way so i would say as below so above. when i'm looking at these fungal networks and thinking about the start of the universe presumably you would say as above so below well ex. okay. I happy to say that they look alike right. The cosmic web that they speak of but web web implies some coherence to what's going on and in this cosmic web the distances between nodes is so far that even at the speed of light an appreciable fraction of the age of the universe has to go by before it could communicate with. Let's use the word communicate so for so we have. We have galaxy clusters that are so large the clearly together but it can take the age of the universe for anyone galaxy to cross and get to the other side. Well that's really that's the slow boat right so would it not authen. It's not legitimate to think of these as functioning systems if we're limited by the speed of light of course as we expect that they are whereas you're my seal liam and everything else. Salute terrestrial or smaller. Yeah you can have interconnectivity on the time scale of the lifespan of the organism. You talking about so just because things look the same doesn't always mean they are the same and i say in this case. That's one of those examples. Yeah i mean. I i didn't i didn't think amendment the the cosmic web and the voice discussion. My cd-rom were the same. But i thought it would be cool if they work. If the mushrooms in fact we're communicating with the galaxies. So we just give up at that point. We got no hope as humans universe. Today we discover that mushrooms controlling galaxies. All right guys we call it quits there. So merlin thank you for coming onto star talk Always from london. And we're gonna follow your work and just in case you discover some new mushroom and you want to tell everybody about it. You can do it here. I we can get some new.

How 2,000 Years Of Monetary History Led Us To Bitcoin, With Nik Bhatia
"All right nick. Welcome to the breakdown. How you doing. I'm doing great. Thank you so much for having me. This should be superfund so as we were just discussing following your writing forever. I loved seeing it. Come together in kind of the the full length form In what i wanted to do today is actually kind of go back through history. And i think what layered money does so well is it gives people the context understand this rather than kind of just being like. Here's why bitcoin is awesome. Bitcoin is amazing. Let's actually dig into the history of money that got us here. And so what. I thought would be really fun. Today is actually walk. The listeners through some of that history of money starting way back at the beginning But before that. I guess like start with defining the kind of the central term here the central concept of layered money since the name of the book. It's obviously a really important concept. What is layered money. Actually meet layered. Money is a new framework. And so what i did was i took this idea of assets and liabilities and in our monetary system the way that the way that the system works is that financial institutions have assets and liabilities. They have relationships with each other and through these relationships come. Monetary instruments and monitoring instruments. Because they are within these relationships between financial institutions there is a natural hierarchy there and so the hierarchy of monetary instruments is not something that is common commonly discussed at term. So my goal with layered money was to bring that to the forefront in instead of talking about liabilities talking about a pyramid of money in which there is a hierarchy and at top of the pyramid are certain financial instruments or commodities and certain financial institutions. Right below them using those assets as the base for a whole monetary system and so the idea for layer money actually came directly from a paper in academia called the inherent hierarchy of money by a economics. Professor merlin. And what he wrote was fat. Money is inherently hierarchy go and he provided this academic framework for this and he had a three layered system gold government currency and deposits so a three layer system and i found that paper so fascinating in. So what i did was. I actually tried to trace the roots of that paper. That paper didn't have a historical context. It was about the hierarchy of sheets in the financial system. What i did with layered money is. I tried to trace the roots of that paper and i ended up starting the story about eight hundred years ago in renaissance florence To describe how. I saw this evolution occurred so i wanna get into florence but you actually start the book even farther back. You kind of pull the earliest experiments with coinage kind of set it in historical context. So let's talk about in the sort of ad era. I guess those early experiments with money with coinage What were the important kind of steps on the journey to get to where we get in that in that kind of renaissance that early period. What were the important parts of the earliest phases that you're looking at. So the transition between gold and gold coins is what identified as the first important transition so before gold coins gold was used golden. Silver were used as mediums of exchange. But it was in the form of non standardized fars jewelry etc these days gold and silver items but not necessarily uniform in their measure in weight. So the coin. The coin did was it. Changed this idea that we can to measure or gold and silver. Every time we transacted with each other. Because now the coin that i that you recognized you have acquired that i recognize. I know how much your coin as you know how much mike ways and so we can change We can exchange a lot quicker than if we didn't have the coin so that was very important advance in that happened for the first time. Several hundred years before a renaissance florence in actually in ancient libya which is in modern day turkey so after the after we start getting gold coins then we actually see the greek in the roman empire's us coins To admit coins and to use these coins in order to expand their empires and exert their influence over their subjects and what we saw the roman empire was really example devaluation so this idea that a government can come in mint coin but then the next year put less gold. Silver in the coin and progressively keep cheapening the currency But tried to really get away with this idea that the currency that the issue this year is the same as the currency that they issued ten years ago which had twice as much silver or golden and so the manipulation of currency at through government started to happen as well Along the signed before we get into the rasul's
Roller Skates And Atomic Power
"Charles baggage would dream up the analytical engine which most people agree was the first automatic digital computer famously. His friend at a lovelace was considering badges computer when she published what was basically the first computer program now. The actual computer wouldn't be created during their lifetimes but they're well planned ideas. We're enough to change the world. Don't get me wrong. You wouldn't have been able to play minecraft or among us or even solitaire on a computer like this or anything but it was a pretty radical idea and like many young people who go on to do great things. Babich was inspired by some pretty creative people. One man in particular comes crashing into mind when he was a young boy badges mother wishing to nurture his curiosity and fascination with mechanical things took him to visit a short older and quite unusual man. John joseph merlin. Now if you live in england and your name is merlin people might expect you to be some sort of wizard and while this merlin contrast spells or shape shift and he had certainly never counseled any mythical kings like king arthur. He was a wizard in his own ways. By this time he was approaching the end of his life but he had remained pretty famous around england for decades. You have a hard time finding a man who had created quite so many unusual inventions. And you'd also have a hard time finding a man who knew how to make an entrance and get noticed in quite the way that merlin could first off. He was an inventor of automata but he was also one of the most prolific inventors in all of europe. If you've listened to our episode mechanical monsters you probably recall the basics of what goes into an automaton. If you haven't listened to that episode well. It is our most popular so consider this an invitation in short an automaton is a mechanical device often resembling a living creature which through years and finely tuned pieces can create movements that mimic something like life. Think of it like an early robot. They were wildly popular at the time and they didn't even really do anything they were just like cool to look at in some ways. People never change and they love good amusement and automata were the pinnacle of impressive amusement in the seventeen. Hundreds one of merlin's earliest creations was a collaboration with a mentor of his. It was called the silver swan and unlike many of the automata from the seventeen hundreds. This one still works the shiny. Silver swan bobs. Its head on. Its long neck cranes over its shoulders and ultimately catches a fish which it appears to swallow before nestling back into its wing to watch it now and consider all of the mechanical movements and all the time spent making each articulated piece still amazing in the seventeen hundreds it would have been mind blowing and these sorts of things. Slow badges young mind during this. Visit the world changer. To be sought some of these enlightenment era robots but also saw invention after invention mechanical curiosities. And some of merlin's favorite creations. Instrument's it was obvious to merlin that. This boy showed an aptitude. He dripped with potential and he burned with desire to understand more so the man suggested to his mother that they all visit his private up which was not something. The general public got to cast their eyes upon. This must have made quite an impression. Because years later after merlin at passed away his collection was sold and the now adult badge bought a few of the eccentric. Man's unfinished atop and finish them himself in sort of a tribute to the genius. Who showed him kindness and knowledge at a young age. Of course this meeting was towards the end of merlin's life when he was a younger man he wasn't so famous and he didn't have a museum filled with his creations
Nebraska Doctor Craves More Help, Less Hero Talk
"As of yesterday nebraska is considered one of the highest risk states in the country and some of alberta. Those patients have ended up in the hospital at the university of nebraska medical center. Where his partner. Dr jasmine marcellin is an infectious disease specialist. This particular hospital is known as one of the most pandemic ready hospitals in the entire country. Back in twenty fourteen. The hospital had one of only a handful of biocontainment units that were prepared to take in a bowl of patients and now it's taking in hundreds of covert patient's doctor merlin. How are things looking right now at the hospital at this point in time well we have been going through a pattern of a surge the last several weeks and we we were noticing that we're seeing more and more patients that are coming through all of that leading up to the hospital becoming more and more full and that was something that we were seeing across nebraska and my understanding is that you started with to covert units last spring But you have a lot more now. Yeah so our our hospital is. We still have a little bit of room. Not much room left how it has progressed over. The last several months has made it so that we a by early last week we had been up to ten covid units that we stood up in the hospital and so several floors of One tower we had to jump to another tower to create more covid units. And we seem to have just need for more and more units being opened. Yeah so. I know that you know. Even though that nebraska has a tremendous amount of cases per capita one of the highest in the country. Right now it does not have a mask mandate in place Many schools remain in person. You know restaurants and bars are open for indoor dining. I think you know it's safe to assume. Many people gathered in in groups over the thanksgiving holiday. What are you anticipating for the trajectory of cases in the region and capacity at the hospital. So usually we expect to see that you know when you see numbers doubling maybe every fourteen to twenty one days we can expect to see that after major events or large gatherings would be anticipating surges. And so as a whole as health care professionals in nebraska. We have all been pretty anxious about the holiday season knowing that. It's really such an integral part of a society to gather together but what we're concerned about is what the impact of people continuing to gather indoors is going to have and i'm just sad for what we could have prevented with more definitive actions. You know quite frankly. Sometimes it's devastating seeing the extent of the damage that this does to individuals and the death that it can cause all of that is just. It's preventable thing. That is the biggest tragedy me is is. It didn't have to be
Economic Fallout From COVID-19 Continues To Hit Lower-Income Americans the Hardest
"Just a few types of locations. KQED science reporter Danielle Benton has more from a recent study out of Stanford. Location services are enabled on, say, your weather app. Your phone shares information about where you go on how long you're there. Whenever you leave the house and self interest are restaurants, jeans, grocery stores, places of worship. This data is anonymous ized and used by researchers like you're a less Kovic, Stanford computer scientist. He and others recently modeled how people's outings drove the course of the epidemic in the 10 biggest US metropolitan areas. When New York you had a huge spike and people state a common dividers die down. Philadelphia, San Francisco was up and then kind of flat. Researchers could also infer which types of locations were responsible for the most transmissions. Before there were widespread health safety precautions. There is a very small number off places about let's say 10%, where 85% of full infections happened. Indoors. Sit down. Restaurants, cafes and gyms are the top three. Crowded businesses also increased risk there, especially a problem in low income neighborhoods. And you found out that even a trip to a grocery store is twice as 3 FT. For an individual from a low income neighborhood versus individual from high income neighborhood. Residents of poor neighborhoods are also more likely to work, low wage service jobs that can't be done online. One of the big achievements of this study is to highlight the occupational vulnerability that People on the lowest ends of our occupational structure have had to face Merlin Chow Kwan Yin's studies public health at Columbia and was not involved in this work. He says. It highlights how important temporary income assistance could be for people who cannot afford to stay home. The study also shows that tapping a businesses peak capacity can slash transmission while cutting overall foot traffic by only a small amount. I'm Danielle Benton KQED news. Now we're going to

"Enjoy the episode. The fairies of merlin's craig. Once upon a time in scotland. A boy named calder was cutting pete for his father. If you didn't grow up around the bogs of scotland and ireland you may have never seen before and not understand how unpleasant a chore was to cut it. Pete is a sort of thick earthy turf. It grows and decays and grows again all into itself. Leaving layer upon layer of rich brown matter. Families like caldere's would use sharp shovels to cut strips of pete out of the ground and then pile them on their wagon. The pete could then be burned little fires to keep their house warm or it could smoulder to heat pots for cooking and could even smoke dried barley for whiskey. It was hard work to harvest pete and it was called her least favorite chore. He'd rather be in school. He'd rather be doing homework or milking the cows or feeding the horses but no he had to cut lousy pete. Every hack of the shovel made his hands blister and burn and by the time the wagon was half full. His back was beginning to like a bad tooth died. He called out towards the barn where his father worked. I'm getting quite a bit tired. can i be done. No olot lodhi filled the wagon yet. His dad called back is mostly ful. Calder said they.

That was just superstition. Joselito more pay it. The boy said to himself stomach rumbling. Then i can go in and make a bit snack. Trumping into merlin's craig. He found a rich bed of pete with a few azaleas growing from it. The flowers were dotted here and they're across the bog all colored the deep purple pink of a butterfly called her was to board and soar to appreciate their beauty though. Instead grumbling complaints he hacked into the pd ground with his shovel. The sharp iron edge cut a rough square and then he leaned down to pull it up with his hands. Came a small voice. What do you think you'd hope to what calder said. Jumping up looking all around. Who said that.

Long. As a as liberal as it is traditional. Varieties and it's good to kind of touch base with all. It's always good. I think whenever you gotta you gotTa. Explorer everything I think as an actor I'm yeah, if a challenge comes up. It's it's you know we don't have a choice with each episode because you really knew I'm going to do this. And when you read all the scripts, you think Whoa, this would be, this would be hard. Would be challenging. That's what I always looked up. Because I being surprised by description, the most I think this has been the season where the has. The most surprises in terms of story of the characters. Do I've been surprised that the. The turns. It's been taken. To be involved in show, right from the beginning to new everything in sight and then the script and Goop, Whoa. And thoughts I think that's a huge tested. The writers producers for for the difference. They're making for this season. What about playing the older Merlin Amorous so which is cool, but but I mean difference because. The murder, and that you see in this picture thoughts that's Merlin. The Merlin, that I play, you know as myself as actually is, is in this character that mertens me up and he's playing what he thinks. MOM would be like more of Mon- can get away with which. Ignorance and Anger and Insults, so, that's kind of Something funds for me the players as well. On the, there's a lot of actually this is is there's actually there's one episode where I'm basically three different people. and which was exciting to me and play series popularity grew, and that meant more people visiting the set. The. Plate when we go to go to France and there's just a lot of people that are. You know. It's not somewhere used to on. It's not it's not ever anything that you to reject or feel opposed to. It's just thought it's. When you Feminine Studio for so long and suddenly you've got an audience watching the scene. On but this year it's been there's been massive muscle reminded people that are on so exciting to see because it is growing, it is getting bigger and also lots more capable getting. See Awesome Castle as well. You know it's it's a music. It's just a coup. So yeah, phone support was always been impossible. It just feeds more than. Because of the arrogance of Arthur and Merlin temperament. Do you think they balance each other out in a way is trying. He's trying to bring north of Ryan. To his his way of thinking, but with Arthur's and morals and heart still in the right place, and at the minute his heart's tongue. Arthur's parts town Majdic is evil. You've got.

"Scripts right just going to let me know what happening. I've read the books, but just let. And Casting Young actor Colin Morgan they did the old wizard proud, but it certainly is a challenging role for sure. It's so exciting on. There's no there's no denying not one of you started something like this. There's no way you could possibly comprehended where it was going to go, not not not that he didn't believe in it. It's just that you never want to be part of something something, special and unique and successful and but the fact that it's gone here fourth series sitting in San Diego the. Yeah. It's unbelievable I season in three that we've seen in the states. What's been interesting is a lot of the quest that arts has gone of course Merlin's been there right with them Is that what is that done for their relationship because? I at times and actually played medically. They've been butting heads of open so. How's it? How's it? Has It hurt? Hurt it or improved early? Situation, because you your plan. With Status Games here of royalty and servitude. Dot in the world in this medieval world we live in can never be overcome. They argued friends because of those journeys have been on in the conflicts of the heart and the connections that they've done these these these moments right season three, where although they are complete opposites, completely different people thought suddenly you see elements loneliness of missing parents in their in their life, which they have in common and new these weird moments of and on the both not good about talking about how they fail. You guys do so. You know you've got this kind of sorts. That you're not supposed to talk about those things, but but they do you kind of go actually. Pretty similar in their in their very different Liz on him. And I'm bouts. Improve their relationship, but it's funny thing not going into the fourth series because. It's almost time to put those childish things away. And in a sense on. Don't know how ready. Murden is due dot. I'm. Cropland, to hold onto what what's been deeply there for so long Americans in a loss. Merely has everyone everyone sort of taken their places in moving towards things earnings in the middle? Watching all the school, and where where does he go to the big thing from early in this new new season coming up from the legend? Is there something that he is looking forward to playing in the series growing up, I knew as much really a legend as as anyone knew this ordinance stone stories, and under the brief kind of nights of the table since since involved show I read lots of by the legends lots of. On. It's great to be informed by the world and educate yourself because you're working in this in in neck. It helps to know. And not that you use everything sort you know, but. But this is a retelling on. If anything reading more but the legends. Reaffirmed the fact that every version you read is a retailing on that. You have to retell it. You can't recreate. On them. That's WHAT ABOUT SPLASH! It's great the new. Orleans stuff, but you gotTA. You gotta you gotTa. Tell your story none. I like the there's. There's a great. Story of the MoD Merlin which I like the feel of which is which is. It plays in the fact. I mean this stuff is going through in this new season. Coming up, you could try. And go nuts. But. There's grit thing that he was called mob because he didn't agree with war. He didn't know anyone in that area. Who didn't. See the as a strategy, and there's a way of solving. Problems was called Mark. On. Right on an so he retreated from the world. Any went off into the woods to consult with the stars in what he believed in an. I like an element of. Solitude due to find the fate highly can, he can solve. Wars and battles coming up in this series Galore on N.. There's room for it and something I'd love to see, but then if everything was the personal care which we got to score lost series sitting. Out comes back more. I think for you as an actor in this past season that we're seeing the really have had the challenge of balancing comedic moments dramatic moments. How is that then? That probably one of the most difficult seasons for you as a result. It's been one of the most liberating. Really. It's whenever you can lift up a script. Scripts and go. Everyone's every story so different from the next, and it's different Merlin in each one almost done you have to. You have to put on. The Moscow, who he is because he's Suma. Everyone is different people with different people all the time on them. On more so for Maryland, because of the secretly harbors on on in that world it's it's a challenge so whenever whenever you? Read a script and you go. Hi. That's the best you know. If you look at it and you think it see. Also I also scared about thought. It's when you look at it and you go hard I'm going to do this and. That's that's a good place to start his his dream. Sue Big his ambition, so beg. To to live in a world where magic is free. AM. Where as a result, and he can be free and. It's ruined by this great king. That's his ambition. To achieve. He he would be the edit to mess that up. And `and if he if he ever. If he took the wrong opportunity at the wrong time, and the wrong elements of something wasn't right. If nothing was set in place, and he decided to reveal the most the most. The biggest thing that could could ruin everything. You know it's it's more and more threatened series of realized. He count on this news right unless he knows every single thing set in place and in the fourth season he gets the biggest opportunity. He possibly can to get towards that. On he takes it. So. You have to see how it works. Zero Point during the course of this series where Arthur figures out what Merlin is doing using his magic, and maybe turns a blind eye to it. That would be an interesting way to explore that I think because it's GonNa be an interesting thing. When Arthur finds I hide as he react. MERTENS biggest fear is that you've got to sort of reincarnation of youth.

"Of red loads and loads of stuff area. I've read all the classic or three and legends and more or less anything with Merlin and the title. I'm a big research when it comes comes to it because I think you should. If you're if you're you're working fonsi Jonah and especially in Medieval Kamla off very why not raise? All there is does offer at my direct use. It is there somewhere. We already see what he was good. He was good with them on the definitely be given a lot of free rent and be able to to put my own take on it. I guess Oh But Yeah I've definitely reformer south as much as I possibly could on you. What there is think every there is. There is the classic mini series of some new I think I think he. I think he's grit and I think he's a great job and I mean could revert to the Euro Disney's Ordinance Stone Marlon. But that's just because it's the child in me is screaming inside the school and Sunday. Talk about working with the special effects. You know the Magic's added later. How how do you do is it becomes second nature now that you've done a two seasons and second nature I don't know Because because it's there's you're often told what what what will the thing is that you have to interact with or you have to speak to your the up to run from an and it all differs spot but yeah you definitely become a lot more acclimatized to it because because I think when when you first look at Green Spring and they go right this is Gonna. This is a thirty foot dragon talking to you. And that's that's the breathe. Fire it and you go right whenever you know. Initially but once she see what they do on on high it turns out on. They do a great job on it. You don't fear it's so it's so yeah. He doesn't become a bit more confident. But I got solution of things I think as long as you just go. Resume don't do be embarrassed and business is begging as bold as you. Count should be okay. How about some of the sword fighting training training stunt work and tell us a little bit about that. Unfortunately I don't get out because you know I never get to look through and coming up. It has to be on the horizon. I got some. I got some stuff. Unfortunately not sorta weapons-related ever would tend to drop someone knocks on which I think's good. Merlin should make good fighter because this thing his things. Mogae you know. He's he's if he was a good fighter he would. He would fight but is forced to use his pars about his his words on him. Arthur is vitamin broadly. Lose those Lewis a train. He's really really good at ease. You know we've got stop man coming in invite name and he's he's up there with them and they're they're even and and to escape get the training and then on combat and we get to do all our own. Most of our own stuff is especially horses. She redo all our stuff and all the stuff. It's been Brian Vital. The castle itself is a character definitely But are there rooms that you have not personally seen as the places? So yeah it's a it's a weird place and it looks slowly. Look at your wads. Its proper Fairy Tales Public Disney. But there's dark places and underneath the stretch for miles and miles underground to different parts of different cities which uses the skateboards for for for for And I think it was whenever the run the Second World War. I think it was whenever the French. Germans were hiding dining table to to get some scary stuff dynamic. There's there's a wall and it's up to the Public. We've filmed on that and clearly. Some people refined obviously a firing squad. And they were just lined up on on this. Just a lane of bullets right across the wall. You indict nine out when you see these dark secrets underneath your right. The character calculates such a character so much on and on them. And it's I don't think we'll ever understand fully is you know what's going on in their special. Thanks to Gary Mirror now and John Johnson. Thanks so much for listening. I'll be happy to report.

"I mean you know the great thing about Anthony is that he's worked on concept shows before if you show Buffy we've yeah yeah it was quite a good show and and he. I mean you know we love tiny and Tony's just very good at that contracting you know he he can. He just has a way of dealing with that dialogue. Making it feel very real at the same time just not little twinkling commodore as well you know. I knew very difficult Paul. Because what you've done warned in Antonio Grad is low. He didn't want the Queen of hard. You don't just the show you know. New Three is far more complex charismatic. He thinks he's doing the right thing in and to be to be a leader. You've got to have a certain such rules And it was gray and it was a real Kutab tiny you know. We sentenced scrape signs. And he said yes we will. We were sort of ready hugely excited to be working with him. But don't tell him. I said that now traditionally almost every other detail about Arthurian Tales. There's not a lot about young. Merlin comes into the scene at this party fully realized character of did you pull anywhere for inspiration for Merlin's stores that he's GonNa go want this out. I mean we just I mean like I think we just liked the idea off a young a young man that doesn't realize his destiny his future that he is the conduct. Downtrodden rejected person the appreciates and I think that that was sort of starting point this to Mike him sort of Gauchan lovable and ordinary. And and and I think that was just it was. It was all about you. Know the subjecting the The the everybody expects Merle into this amazing. You know wise wizards. So let's do the expectation and make him sort of very nicely sweet and and not aware of his potential. So that was it was a starting point. And then you the discover this grace boys for him and made him sort of you know. Follow the human and likable. I think it was sort of. It was taking everything says about Mudan religion and doing the officer across. So you know you look at thing of Android. Let's put aside and let's do this aid that desire to see that side. It's was that I don't know I mean I suppose as a storyteller. I'm always fascinated in telling the story of the odor of the of the supposedly normal person. Bats view has something extraordinary. So it's playing around with somebody that has to a has to deal with being a teenager and God. I'm also at the same time dealing with the fact that he has magic and a huge responsibility to save camelot into the Prince Office Eagle these two parallel stories running side by side and that you know and coping with being a teenager is actually just as hard as having to save from a drunken and I think there's something really noticing human about that extraordinary thing in that human thing run. Those two in parallel still sticking his name shows smallville. Take Yeah on the other hand. It was like a conscious choice in your part critics. Nothing you know. We were accused of smoother than I thought they did was very very clever so in voices that subconsciously sort of you know inspire us in the you know we saw. How cleverly did to us it was about re re creating legend before they were famous basic and so the way that the Smallville did it it was an inspiration surprising because it was just so you know the the first series was just very clever in the way that you had in Alexa Luther. You know he's going to be able but actually he's you know comes across his bring Rudy ready noisome and that was the same sort of the data. We have as well. You know case GonNa you know if you know anything about him off the ledge that she knows. She is basically unbelievably evil in his office downfall. So let's Matron. Let's let's meet her and she's you know very very likable. Has Problems has accused hall. And then we then then tell the story of how that is destroyed in how she tends to walk so. I was GonNa say if you'll pardon the back Harrison in almost reminds me wicked the author who wrote the series of books such fascinating concept of taking a look at the people before leaving. Yes yes so it. That's the same type of thing. The world was interested in doing. Is You know there's nothing really young. There's nothing really about young to be able to create those to create the stores before the legend begins though is ready fascinates me up to create the story of Excalibur and lastly here's Merlin. Himself Colin Morgan has gone with poppy hookah. Yeah it's it's kind of a raven here for the first time so it's seen what it's like in there so says them not so much the politics nervous right look look sense. Can you get this kind of a tease of where're Merlin's a punt season? Yeah Well one of the big major things. I don't know how much you know already am is a year in the future. So what's happening in in the year regardless of people change 'em on the big things that the marlins been through life changing events of who are in the second series and exchanged ten. I I think I think is is a bit more of an all in as you've seen him innocent youth his one of his big downfalls is that he has to trust in a little bit naive. I think he's been portrayed enough times on abuse enough time to learn from lock on them as one of the things I've been writing for is Is is growing up on the on. The things come out change in as well in upon apar- neue on a on a fear deep fear of of of of something hotline something. Bruin which which comes to a head in In the second in the second part of that we opened up with and so yet. Big changes big developments Tacoma as well and I comic things from legend Israel which which are being introduced more more and more so lots lots going on. I'm sure lose lots. Lots of the men working. I think it was a big thing Because he marlins big things is is this morals and any cares about people on the even though is one thing hearts completely saying the opposite on them unto Code. Madonna was one of those things which was unbearable them to go have to think about the future. You had to this is this is the right thing for for what I've been told to do. Not come come back to haunt them whenever in in this in the third series bobby. She's France Oh thank you. Yeah Oh thank you couldn't when I read it. I thought. Are we going to do this? Because it was thought it was very very dark for a series. Which does explore dog? This isn't generally. There's a mixture of of the of the Corky hoppy episodes and then they prayed often through bit of stuff there as well. As one of the things we're GonNa let Merlin Kilmer Ghana was. I think it was with Arthur. Yeah one of the great things that they've been introduced night is we we. We very much see our relationship. Was The servant master that the comedy between the status and between the two of them and what we're seeing the Merlin of old the Merlin of Legend as as the WHYS advisor to the king coming through and so it's not just about the par his magical parlor in the power of his words on how he can use where Merlin bottles and modulating against the foes the part of his thoughts in his words are for Arthur. And that's that's that's one of the things that's coming through you seen you seen Merlin thinking in a different way. An Arthur lessening in a different way on am that's one of the big things between major changes in the third series. Are there more repercussions from Commendable thing that Merlin did was promised to release to dragging their more repercussions in In series three about them not not so much For Religion for releasing the dragon m but Merlin did Required the the part of the Dragon Lords from from his father which I think is is is a big thing. Because that's actually something that he learns to us an unto to harness and in any way and really unexpectedly actually because he's got tied to the. Dragon the dragon no longer and his his ice house. The par he. He's you know he's a frigging dragon. Newark GonNa you know. He's going to tell him. All right is on almost one thing. We're we're seeing is that. He's learning to use the the dragon as supposed to an enigma. But he needed to work out because he's taken no nonsense from him now. I think he I think he's enough of of of the dragons riddles on. It's like look just tell me it is and I'm scared to John. Hart coming back to the to do all.

"Diametrically opposite the challenges to make him him. That's the that's the main thing because because he could be two-dimensional Giles was was was fully flashed with With an extremely complex backstory from the word go And actually is not far off that I mean as say as we're going through season three and the and the boys have it's lovely to be part of something which has a very clear story from the beginning. We're not going from season to season guy. What can this be about? They know very very specific idea of the ox is and where where they lead us and consequently It's it's fun playing somebody. Who is a bigot? Who IS Closed minded very Just because it's fun it's fun. It's fun actors who was great from playing the bad guy. It's fun playing by guy from me. If if he's if you can find his pathology can find the reasons for what he is who he is and what he does. Then it's fun to me just playing somebody. Who's playing bad. It's kind of now. You found love. This past season did with the troll. She died in in a very unpleasant smell. Yes but I also. Somebody asked me about that. I think it also served. Its purpose in this in this. You know at this general finding out who is because it. It illuminated his softer side. Whole bit you know why should but It was great fun to play and I I mean I'm very fond this era. We were with each other before she such fun and such a trooper she had to be in that percentage for a long time and She's just gorgeous absolutely gorgeous isn't it wasn't difficult to be enough without even with all the south and some of the foods we. It was very unpleasant. Mashed up chocolate banana. And something something really. Just shove it in takeoff to take off the I know. What's the kind of actually she is but And it was nice to sort of you know. It's nice to be able to laugh at everything because otherwise if he's saying this Oga it's it's there's more to him than just just being the bad guy. That's what I'm saying at. The end of the day comes to solve with her. Choose between Arthur and Kim Rob which says he picked Brooks. I guess camera because that's his job. Yeah that's a no brainer. You know what he cares that here yet. Real quick if given the opportunity would you play doctor who as I said time? One I couldn't figure generation is but who would've loved to have seen it. I loved what I don't want WanNa ever rule it out in my head you a chance. Okay that's cool. Johnny capps is to co executive producer and creator of Merlin. We heard really I. It's going to start airing ball. That's right yeah. We have a very tight up. Production turnaround in the we We still story lining in sort of November December of last year. We saw shooting in March. We see all the way through until October and we saw and starts transmitting September so filming and shooting at the same time and then we usually in post production reproduction for the next series Merlin Circle. So it's was it's always entertaining. There's never a dull moment to have it mapped out. You know where this story ends up the King Arthur. We Want Berlin. Has his wizard math down in the long term when we recent stories on we thought? God this series to begin within a five year plan. Then so we have Each series we have a conic off theory and legend moments that we worked to meals. we And so we use that we free slowly bleed in the the legend so we have milestones every so often. So you know a series three when you would start with when you we wanted to deal with Mugabe. We're getting series three. And then we have a sort of a few iconic legend moments that we joined the series with so we kind of know we sort of now that we kind of roughing away to take each Harrington and then the rest of it sort of voles important canning process. We you know we think each week. It's very important that each week we tell self contained story is developing the series. It was very much about Tell Minneapolis Venture Movies That's will appeal cross generational and then we will build in a little bit of St Cereal but the the emphasis was on the mini action adventure. But we do you know in in Judy's minds we have. We have specific moments that we need to reach to it said points. Sarah's what if you WANNA burn your day in which the differentiation I think to the fight to the Matt Magic Fan episode because I guess what we were interested in telling the story of the young sung hair and having having young and him dealing with the destiny I think that's always sort of storytellers. You know having a telling the story but y'all person with an extraordinary destiny and how coq with that and how the cope with with what that destiny expects of them lost. The central having to cope with just being human beings always an interesting story tools. So we really kind of like that and I guess we want to sort of inject a bit of fun into it as well and they're in lots of the other. Modern stores in tight says tired too seriously whereas starring boom that even though we told big epic stories of life for data and people laying down laws other when we had plus at the center wants to to come out with a low of the casting process going back in time was who is the hardest personal. I think he's always. I think it was difficult to park. Hostile young actors. We were very much we didn't want to call in any of the four young roles wanted to discover new talent. We The time we pretty certain the we'd be able to secure a one act so we're and we're under no pressure from the network to find the famous person So so I think that that. That was a challenge. Finding you know working with young actors because you know they can come into costumes. And they're very very nervous. Do you have to keep bringing back? And I think we'll start in a high concept shy you'll finding British actors that can deal concept worlds. It's very difficult to express Jackson's very much. Ingrained into naturalism. Kitchen SINK DRAMA. So for them to be able to deal with With a high concept world which is extraordinary and flying that right acting so as American too far back in English actors at that was very hard and I think also you know look is positive I mean Merlin and off that were very very difficult components to cast author. I kind of knew who I want to Bradley James. Before and I knew that he had great comedy warmth. And that's why I wanted murderous very difficult because you you WANNA know to Douse Sheet. Playing rights that can be really emotional like big intense emotion but at the same time to have a law and And and and be funny and most important goal. He's got to be ready like it. But if you don't like this actor then you know so. It was trying to find an active filled with those are all of today's demands and we call in about God knows poor Guy Him in about twenty times and we just kept on auditing real real dishing and you know he. He was an extraordinary actor. He hasn't done much before done a couple of smoothly roles and then and the couple By said he was ready brought to beginning. But you know there was something extraordinary by his acting ability which was in recognize but again that kind of likeability thing still. We're VERY WORRIED ABOUT BECAUSE WE'VE COST. The shows cost lead person and actually the audience in response to that. Well so that's that's the big risk in the big strikes is how how how. GonNa look on screen against like we had an instinct that people would like you know and unfortunately thank God. It works brilliantly and you know he was this hugely likeable character in the British audience. Responded very warm so through was a huge sigh of relief. Anthony Stewart Yeah. I mean he was. He was He was Way Up on the top of costing list..

"It just listen to be only the key composer in the first. He wrote the main theme and pretty much. All the victims actually is Israel. Blind has many many big shows on. Robbie still starts and finishes every series for us on right suitable. Probably five at the Senate is about all Eakin do because the turnover saved. Well it's an orchestral school we recorded. It's an orchestra scores. So that makes a huge difference. I mean you can't replace the live playing in never been able to. We never will. And he is a phenomenally good composer he really is very very talented guy. And you know we'll give him an episode. That's incredibly comment. Not The heroic big stuff and he'll still write not Peter he's he's got real range so he is the man responsible for the good stuff that we let him bringing composes to sort of to help him do the episodes in the middle because it just isn't time and he chose the many he gives them a huge amount of clutter that traced that he reruns software so health too. I think to In the dragon wasn't really nice. Touch John Hurt. That's not shopping. Took the now. We've released the dragon easier. Actually he's he's do. We have huge problems. Because we've made this dragon so big. He's the size of a sort of jumbo jet and we have numerous problems in staging sayings. And we've got to build this mountaintop airy for him Gordon Food Series but John. Her is is very brilliant and we tried to make him more character inasmuch as you could do that with the trucking so he does have an interesting journey and we do we. D- things with him seriously with great series. Thank you after interviewing as he played tiles on. Buffy was great to reconnect again with Anthony. Stewart head who is King Luther Pendragon? Had well maybe one day be had because I'm getting ahead of my time with any world we want. So when's the melting is going to happen? Save you'd have to ask Johnny Julian about I don't know about that one Maybe we've done a couple of 'EM Things for children in need's which which was very funny. So maybe maybe when we get a little singing that but then how does it say what kind of the voice? All these things have to be thought about it could be like an old blues singer. That's cool great ranging from rebel. I mean the two different voices do use for myself. I know maybe like like Jeff Bridges in crazy released. Yeah I one thing. I love about theories that he really has to walk this tightrope keeping me kingdom in order and everything and also kind of keeping our third bay too. So thank you. I'm glad that it's you know the my my job as as I'm concerned is to try and make somebody who could be fairly two-dimensional And I'm I'm very grateful to be working with people who you know that they are king for me to explore that as I am. The fact that he is human and tour is used to be human He's made some decisions Chrysler. Lots are going to be coming back to hold in some ways. The tech is coming back to roost. Yeah he's you know he's an old school father school king. He knows the anyway is. How is it fair And I was saying the other table an obvious analogy for me. My partner works with animals and she worked in a very Known aggressive way and it's amazing. How many how human still relate to domination. That's that's what we do dominate think. That's the way to do things and ultimately there is another way Gentle away and that's what that's what Arthur will eventually cheap. I think he has a problem with keeping authoring check. I just think he doesn't sometimes that authors quite the same page and there's no but that worries him because he's grooming him to be king and there are you know Foresees hanging out on the on the Buddha's just ready to jump in and take over question about magic is whether you know whether he's right to have felt that sorcery needs to be Because we will find. We'll find out more about his journey and his His acquaintance with this season by any chance have hidden it. Maybe that's in your head that comes out maybe not in the script. I don't think so I think he's you know as far as you author is at the moment is showing himself to be a very good prince in waiting ultimately he's he's he's. I think he's everything would would want. These eight questions is decisions you as far as he's concerned if there's a famine You retain the crops for the what's left for the troops because if you give it. The people is not wanted to protect. The people makes perfect sense. It's Hosh author says but then what's the point of protecting the king with the big little dead You can see sides and I think it's that it raises some interesting questions about in the Dark Ages. What would you think secret? Wh what might the secret agenda. I don't know I it was a completely blank question you know. I always wonder it because of course when actor actress creates back stories. And you know that we never know about and sometimes after a little secret that they know that comes their performance well. This juicer has secrets that will gradually service. He has his take on things. I mean in episode eight of of second season. He's confronted by some With With what he may or may not have done but his his take on. It is quite specific. I did what I felt I had to do. But don't see and they they are us. I'm not saying more than thanks. Mainly no you. I'll NORLIN LIKES MAGIC. Like towards the the series.

"Two years ago I covered my first round table at San Diego Comic Con for Merlin and here are the interviews from that particular session. Starting us off as executive producer and Co Creator Julian Murphy. We haven't seen season three on this side of the pond. What can you tell us is gonNA tease US along as to what's going to happen the first thing size. We haven't finished a single episode. Yeah although we we are in in the fall in the UK we always finish it very kleist transmission but obviously we've we've written storyline to do I think this series does take it does change It becomes a little bit darker a little bit. Older GONNA returns and that changes the dynamic show quite a lot. I think we stop telling stories about the struggle for to the struggle for succession is obese. Nate is not going to be there forever. And that means more armies battles and sieges that sorta stuff which has been great today And I think he's giving it a new lease of life. We've introduced a fair. Few younger characters We've we've introduced to in his in unite. We've introduced a brother for has a role in so there's some new young characters coming through. It's a little bit less episode. It a little bit more realized. That's that's that's as much as I can sail giving too much away. Audience took but we were brought up with. I don't know I mean I genuinely I I can tell you more about the UK in Europe's reaction to that because on place a to a know film in front so we do get a lot of funds on our location and get a Lotta most people go with the methodology that we created an Anna. Very happy with them. And I think proportional joy recognizing our spin on particular bits to the legend Aspen Lance spin on sort in late to. What have you sold stones? All of these appeal actually series three Some people can get a little bit. Upset Authority allege in days people feel very passionate and I can't really blame them for that at that salad field but I think the vast majority just go with him. This mysterious more than a thousand years old. It's been told hundreds of different ways that thousands of us there are huge differences between pre medical versions post medieval versions and and to sit there and say there is a definitive version. Probably wouldn't be true so I think we're just reinventing it for our time away and as many how An off disrespectful to that I think the other thing everybody has to remind legend is incredibly dog. It's a story of rape and incest essentially and we made this specifically for Family Odeon so on the baby. Say we just can't tell. How does it feel to be I U on. Nbc here for your first season and now you're on the sci-fi channel for us. I think it's better I. I was genuinely surprised that we will be say. I think I think all of us were As far as I'm aware there's only one other British show in history that on straightens the six hundred did it in the early seventies No other British show has gone onto a new way. I think it's an enormous these. These guys have British accents later. Not Not just bits of America that will watch cable channels but the whole of American network and I think that's a big ask I think over and above that we make this program specifically for family audience and we play sort of early evening on Saturdays on. And that's what it's designed to slop but really doctor who is created on television two very big slots Look very big audiences. Lots of attention are not fighting. There is no real equivalent on you. Start to play. Merlin certainly the Merlin of the first series which is quite a young show at eight o'clock network. It's really not older. I think I think by the time you get into series tune certainly in series three. That might be a different story. But you don't get many chances on that amateur luck in the Senate so I think on sorry for channel. I think that's exactly where an audience looking for that sort of material can seek it and it's done well not make sense. You mentioned that you know the story has been told for centuries and I got to know. What is it that you particularly that you personally love about your adaptation? It's interesting I think when we set out to do it Our feeling was that we just didn't want to tell the story again. It's been told on television many times in some cases very well and so our starting point was we will only do this. Legend if we can do something different with myself in Johnny my co-creator we've spent lots of our careers telling stories that are coming up coming of age stories. We love telling stories about fathers and sons friendships people growing up. We've done a lot of teen drama. Shows like as sugar rush. This has been a real. We gravitate towards that sort of material. So I suppose what we did was tasteless legend and find a way of telling those stories through to us. This is a story of people growing up on friendship. Yes okay there are dragons and warriors and sorcerers. That's not what you care about. And that's what you wrote that's important but it's not what you care about you care about. The story of how author goes from being on obnoxious idiot to a great king. That to me is fascinating story to tell as we do in. This very slowly is a very nice privilege how Merlin goes from being a wide eyed innocent to somebody who pays the weight of the world on his shoulders fascinating story how a king who is a tyrant and dominates his son slowly loses par and on. His son is a fascinating story. So that's why we do. We don't do it because we want to. Tell a story about trolls. Ask what you gain. And what do you lose from changing the relationship between Merlin and Arthur to one of friends as opposed to more of a mentor? I mean that was the big change night. Huge to me Everything else is tiny. You obviously lose you lose the classic buffy mental relationship which has many TV shows what you gain you gain a Mayo friendship and a master servant relationship in this case. Because I think what's also important naughty extensive And I suppose I'm as interested in that male friendship as I am in sort of classic slightly Katich cliche mental relationship. I knew we could have thought the mentor relationship. It's done very well saying some new money and it's it's many moons Omani camera stores whereas I think a story of a person who learns to be a king and does so with the servants secretly actually protecting him creating his destiny. I thought I that new and allowed us to write something new. I thought it with Whenever you're on paper I was. You know you get your little apprehensive. Changing her a little bit but watching angel in role I think you hit on something really cool there and making her blackness nurse daughter. I thought just really a really nice touch. I said I've loved that. Obviously we can develop that more and I think as the show has become a little bit older. It's allowed us to tell stories like that. I'm completely fascinated by the fatter gwen vase role in this is enormous. She's the person who teaches offer to be a good king. She's the one who reminds him of what it is and without him he would be considerably less a man. I'm not gets more and more true. And it's allowed us to give a real role in this story and actually when we started. I'm not sure we saw it as clearly as has developed a nice way. Such a brilliant actress she plays that has to be so coded in Hayden. She plays it she did tell me pointing does want. She wants to be war girly clubs. She likes the she she gets. She's a servant so she's not allowed enough future. Yeah I mean we have actually given more pretty dresses. It's getting a bit bit. She's the Richie Sevens. I'm curious and all the music is just gorgeous but.

Yes as in the Rhodesian Bounty Hunter Star Wars more formerly the catfish at fish who's bug-eyed stare and Droopy Chin like extension really do bring to mind Guido will henceforth be known as Peck Alenia greeted by that final is sound in Latin is a possessive so it means something like grotto's fish one Dr Jonathan armbruster professor professor and curator officials at Auburn University and Longtime Star Wars Fan created the name while studying the fish in two thousand fifteen. It's about one of forty species of fish. He's named date by tradition. Whoever discovers a new species gets to name it discovers covers doesn't necessarily mean fines though armbruster explained discoveries a weird term? I discovered Pedo I in a jar but others actually discovered it in nature. They just didn't have everything they needed to describe it. Armbruster did describe it he. He discovered the nature of the species. The new part of new species is weird to in this context armbruster explains a new species is one that is newly described named of course it existed before scientists got involved describing describing a new species is a science in itself in taxonomy which is the scientific discipline of classifying living things scientists examined physical genetic behavioral. 'em ecological traits to logically scituate species within the biosphere taxonomy is a big deal it reveals how a new species fits into are known world and provides a universal language to describe study it taxonomy lays out the components of biodiversity and thus the tools to preserve it it offers scientists engineers and inventors their best chance at understanding were standing the incredible capabilities that the natural world and explaining it to the rest of US naming is part of taxonomy. A name often reflects a distinctive characteristic like the name Tattoo Rita Brazilian ncis for bat discovered that lives in Brazil. Oh there's a lot of leeway in naming though and scientists often get creative like p Guido I for a fish that looks like Guido or my oldest might attack this for a bat with golden for after mythologies golden touched King Midas. This approach can sometimes be problematic though we spoke with Dr Ricardo More telly biologist with the Waldo crews foundation who named the Golden Bat he explained a characteristic that we I think is you need to that species.

This commercialization makes some in the field uncomfortable with money in the mix. There's concern about biased. taxonomy armbruster said it has the possibility of getting out of hand. Buying a name is a good thing as long as it is four species we have already identified as new. We need more money for taxonomy.

This is marketplace. Tech demystifying the digital economy, I'm Ali would. We're all being hit constantly with spam, callers online, phishing attacks scams and other fraud attempts. But there's medical evidence that otherwise healthy older, people might become more vulnerable to these attacks. My colleague David Brancaccio, host of the marketplace morning report has been reporting on how our defenses get weaker as our brains age. He said some researchers are figuring out how technology is used to scam people, and how that same tech could be used to protect them and just spoke with a researcher at the university of Florida Natalie eb ner from the department of psychology there. She and her collaborator, Daniele Oliveira, a computer engineering. Professor wanna know who is especially susceptible to scams, and who is not they sign up older. People I study put in a special browser on their stuff and then sneaky, researchers they creep in fake phishing emails to their tests subjects and the track who falls for the fake scams. Here's Dr EDNA. And almost majority of our sample forty three percent fail for those phishing emails, this included young and older diets, but it was, especially the older women who showed a particular vulnerability to those phishing emails, and most importantly, what we thought was that there was very little awareness of the risks that's terrifying. So they turned out to be vulnerable, but did not think that they were vulnerable and then tell me more about this forty-three percent. The people who fell for this, the most is the key. Right. Who might be extra susceptible so that we can help them protect themselves. It's not really their general health. It's not just the older. You get one interesting finding here older people with what researchers called negative affect where extra susceptible to online scam. So what's that mean? Well, they tested to see if people were having a bad day. Those are the people who seem to be prone to falling victim to these online scams. The people saying, oh, what a beautiful morning were more immune to tell. Me more about Dr Abner is research.

Well David, and I had a little chuckle about how everybody I'm marketplace spent something like four hours doing cybersecurity training here at work, and we would all love browser plug in instead. Hey boss, but the fact is anyone can fall for these attempts and cybersecurity threats are getting way, more sophisticated and comment. This city of Baltimore has been struggling to recover from a ransomware attack almost two weeks ago. Hackers took control of city services, like utilities payment systems, Valence cameras real estate processing, and on and on and refused to release them unless the city paid a ransom most of the time attacks. Like these are the result of a successful phishing scam for social engineering. A report in wired said this week that both the democratic and.

And quite frankly, all of our players should be here. I mean, he's still doing this stuff. The old military, man. Tom coughing west, you know, with the with the collective bargaining agreement coming up. Are we gonna do away with farce of voluntary? If you have guys going on record saying, I'd I expect you hear suck only involuntary I agree with that in principle in theory. But the one exception I would make is Jalen Ramsey and Leonard fournette for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They had so many issues last year with commitment with the clubhouse with teamwork with chemistry and Jalen Ramsey. I don't know what he's doing with his career.

He was average. Well, there's no question that Leonard fournette deserves to be in that spotlight. I just find that. There's no other team.

Then obviously the coach out to answer for two. It's like are you on the same page? Doug Marrone, say that is Coughlan Merlin's, boss yell. Yeah. Sure. But he can say whatever it just it feels messy to me. But maybe it's just like conditioning at this point just lifting weights.

That's a problem which which with for not has been right, but yeah. Coughlin's gonna gonna not gonna coffee they're gonna
