"You know at the end of the day you know young girls are not being forced to work fourteen hours sewing gloves at the end of the day. We don't have you know women like still having you know fourteen babies and then die in childbirth or whatever like at the end of the day it really is. About and I get it I get it. It's a show for young kids. But at the end of the day I just wanted more than just like I WANNA be free to do karate with my mom and eat apples like they don't even talk about the vote like they don't even actually address it or mention it really outside of like seeing a pamphlet. And then like putting pieces together here, and they're like the points are about clothing like aggressively about clothing and about allowing women to learn how to defend themselves like physically like that's. Like. I just wanted to clarify that when we talk about how superficial it is like that's what's being talked about and the antagonist who is revealed to actually be the dowager, the the the as sort of the main woman, the main figure who puts in motion the attempt on like her nephews. Her nephew, her grandson's. Life, you know like she has big big. The Sun never sets on the British. Empire Energy Right but. I wish that. We never the Phil never even even in the most basic way like engages in an obviously wants to frame that as bad in this very superficial way like ideas about preserving England or whatever. But but that seems to I guess only go as far as like keeping the vote the way it is and stuff like that, and there's no engaging with the consequences of British colonialism imperialism and so on. Though that seems to be very core to. You know that the woman to the dowager is kind of ideology that believe in the inherent superiority of England. Among nations and things. But what would have been more interesting here is not just in like that the grandmothers motivation is to preserve London. But the motivation is about women not supporting other women right like that. There was that was not addressed or or anything like that like, yes there is a preserving of of London, but that's the that's the bullshit mainstream argument that's like the state's rights bullshit right. It's the actually what's happening is it's the white women voting for trump bullshit and so like there was a much more opportunity to talk about how the grandmother is this like old school figure that is happy to. Remain in these subservient oppressed rules in all of her. financial luxury that she has. and. So the tension between the young generation, the older generation about gender roles, not necessarily just about like the state of the country. I would love to talk a bit about the the the characters in the casting for this and I don't necessarily want to spend any time talking about Henry cavill. Could. Conversation about, but you can have like hot homes I. Literally never. going. I was going. Yeah wonders went powers. Kiro, but actually I want to start by talking about the character of Microsoft and this, and this is something that as I said, I've watched in a read a lot of the. Homes. Cannon. and. A lot of different versions like reduce an updates and rematch innings of the homes cannon and one of the things that is really startling me and always disappointing when it happens is that when we get a modern version of Microsoft, he's never fat. Mike Croft in the homes cannon is talked about as being morbidly obese. You know and you know there's really gross ways that Arthur current oil talks about like you know his lassitude and everything but the one constant is that you know he's a very fat man and so I think it's very interesting. Would we look at things like sherlock the Stephen. Martha. And Mark Gatiss production or show like elementary and Nola homes here the Guy Ritchie movies you know the Microsoft that we get may or may not be a genius on par with or superior to homes in that that part is retained but our discomfort. With having a fat figure. Onscreen someone we are meant to admire in any way shape or form is really notable and I remember I I was disappointed that we once again get that here like. What does it take away from? You know depiction of microbes it's not as if in this film, you know he someone that you're like, oh, well, he needs to do like You know all of these very aggressive stunts or whatever, and so we need a certain type of bodies. That's not what we get here. I. Mean we get the You know very attractive, very young Sam Claflin who y'all probably remember from the Games whatever but I don't know it was just like it struck me that that's there's this refusal to reckon with that like we will. We will change everything we'd need to. Invent all kinds of reasons why Microsoft is no longer fat I don't know does something that's interesting to me I. did not know that I agree with you and I also WanNa ask a question ask away is Microsoft fat in the original text to make fun of him. It is it is part of a very dismissive characterization You Know A. CONAN doyle talks about how like micro never leaves his club. If he doesn't have to, he could be a a detective. You know far superior homes. He's got a sharper mind homes, but you know he's so lazy. He never wants to do anything and so it's you know it's part of this characterization of him as like this sort of. I don't know someone unconcerned like completely consumed with kind of sensual Carnell as it relates to food. But you know not. Not Being Act as sort of like math. Eli. Victorian when he should be. I feel like there's a tension here then around Actually there isn't attention it would be cast a fat person, but don't bring any of the like the negative connotations of.

He's the only one that went straight into the because they say go along the fence and everyone else still kind of went through the grass. He goes straight to the mud because he did that. Real athletic balance thing you slide and you put your hands out and you're like I'm good good good. I'm the only one that ran through the mud house like I know yeah it. was you know the weather was good if you would have you know we. We went back echoed on Tuesday and cleaned it up and you know we had a pretty nasty weather of come through on Saturday and man it was it was a way different trails slick. It was muddy there year round. That's such a cool trail from your house up. I mean we could I mean it's just a lot of those shows are still are. There are the permanent trails. From how did those get there either old logging trails or lock people that own. The property created the trails. For either hunting you know getting stuff through around around and to and some trouser. Probably really old as amazed if some of them start out as just like game trails. So you walk through the woods every once in a while you'll notice like Komo super skinny trail and it's the deer usually stay in kind of a they. They kind of skirt the side of the mountain that back and forth instead of going straight up so if you just kinda watch you can kind of see game. Trails is what we call when we did the TAJ exercise. Let's talk out. I can't even believe we made it up to the top now after doing daylight on the winning team losing to obviously you one because Hugo Ross. The loss teams are the loss team. Let's talk about why rich shouldn't win. That almost died. You guys cheated. We didn't cheat edited. That wasn't our fault. Dan was excited and he shouldn't have done that to the top and then know him fired up and fall his Georgia's in his team. He has his team follow our team up and at the last minute sprints to the bar. That's not okay doll fires beyond beyond that point then I was like you're not falling styles. Kinda let us follow you so we didn't die and then it was like absolutely not GonNa Cheat Cheating Punished for it because we second right and so then I was real. I'm surprised that you just hung in there and didn't say hey you know what there were times where I was like this deal and then rich left us with Dan who fed a horse a chick fillet chicken sandwich. Dan Tried to feed them right. Like what you cross over this fence these horses and they're they're friendly if they're just come up to you. Dan freaks out and he's got this chick gave us two sewer three chick fillet chicken sandwiches. Shares and Dan takes close it like the horses GonNa Chase after a chick-fil-a sandwich. It was the most bizarre. We lost our sustenance and still fall at US course and then rich turn lights off and his team ran off into the darkness and we were lost forever. We wouldn't know no lights on the way down. It's a great story as as fun. The best part about the sanctional was just. How like? If you're a spectator you saw. It was right there in front of you super intimate small. You know everybody was. There are people that were upset with how online upset with how expensive the tickets were only. We're like we're only two hundred people we we don't have room for Fire Marshal More than that so we've wanted you know wanted to make it a ticket that was worth coming and it was super for intimate and I feel like you know the vendors did a great job of like having some activation type stuff you know like there was some there was lots to do said it was right there right there. You imploring cool. I thought it was great. which is crazy the way that Jim transformed into like a event venue? You know at first you know like I don't know how this this is GonNa work and then you you walk in. After they got the floor out. And they put all those banners up and then they you know covered up all the insulation that Forget what their Surname I'm GonNa look that up because you give them a shout out those bureaus were creepy. Because they're all me but it's crazy to because even when you first said sanctional we've all been to like different ones but like going to Iceland was like they have like jumbotrons and it's a huge thing and each one is such a different feel. You're but honestly I liked it. It's the idea of. There's no bad seat anywhere like you literally are so close to watching to me. That's better than having bring these ginormous stands where people you're not as much in the action like here it's like you're in the action and we talked about you know doing it. Maybe Hyder burks. We've had mustard seed a couple of times but I think this is kind of the draw. Your Clo- everything's close You know people were right on top of everybody enemies. You get to come across with mayhem. which is pretty cool? Yeah area was super cool to a whole different place which is cool to knock that out of the park. I mean rickie walked in here like this isn't a gym and then they had food all day for everybody. It was table with cheese on it. I don't know what kind of cheese gosh grapes burgers. It was incredible. There was that I'd say like a large percentage of the people in there were from train with rich in. What's going on you know? Volunteers came from everywhere everywhere. Judges came everywhere. I didn't know any who those people were. Yes cool I mean we you now that you have done this sanctional kind of rotation. Now you see all these spaces and you're like oh I remember you remember you justice here you just kind of. It's insane like these people. Just take the time and money out of their own social vacation. You're just like man. So that's that's incredible. You could not do the sport without the judges experiences their you know their own there should be an organization for them that just like sanctional paying paying a service of you know however many there so cut josh was telling me that he didn't realize that that was a a close knit community inside cross fit like they had their own little after party at somebody's AIRBNB and they were like they're really they're connected connected to each other and talk to each other and text groups and all the banners were as Mike Croft signs Microsoft signs their base out of Tennessee East Tennessee.

There's no competition in podcasting big because i'll tell you there's an exact reason for this because it's a it's a autumn that east k that caters to nisha creators and niche consumers so they you know certain kinds of consumer spending and they stick within a sudden people are going to absolutely hating eight and do not listen to other mattress net the beauty of podcasts and you don't need to compete with anyone i know that all the shots and the downloads and everything but let's to be honest yet for all indian podcasters out there especially the ones broadcasting in english. Here's the fundamental truth. When good-quality quality or casters are going to start working in regional languages in india. They are going to dominate the shots from one two hundred because that's what all the listeners out and that's the way it should be. I will be so thrilled to see that happen so i know that is pointless. There's no competition. Can you compete against yourself to improve your data.

I sometimes put stuff from work better than some some dense interesting work will do that. Swell the next segment. I think when we fighting but in you have the need one bulletin but each of the to have a coffee with to have a coffee with i'm going to take time answering these questions okay because i it's meant to be a fun brown but this is also the opportunity to relish doing doing this. The one person i would definitely have coffee with is stephen king that i have idolized that man for a long time and i ooh sometimes you lights these books that too sprawling and can get a bit boring but really is the mazda of writing short stories and really the the the grew to the bob of everyone <hes> he is amazing. He's epilepsy to look at a normal situation in life and to introduce our you are into it. It's amazing and you know. I was a kid. I was going through top teams. I used to go to the library and devout his books and that kept me sane kept me alive kept me <hes> thinking gave me the skillset that'll get skill sets that going to affect me as a writer and have improved mike croft <hes> leading stephen king's own writing was such a life changing experience for me listening to how he became a writer what teething out out of the important thing is should have in the rightist toolkit <hes>. I've really loved to have coffee with that math and right now the word that you said that writer do doing get. I really love to know engaged to get like they're all. It's quite extensive. I m a c._t._o. Plotter ulta and this is part of this comes from the fact that over the fifteen years. I trained very extensively in understanding structure and tool kit for me. <hes> <hes> stopped with understanding how a three act movie structured or five t._v. Structure works and knowing the intricacies of it knowing what story beats. It's need to happen when twenty to be able to tell an effective in gripping story that this north board people. That's one thing i hate when people just indulge judge in storytelling inevitably egotistical faction fashion without respecting the people who are listening to you you are there to entertain them and not waste a single second second time so to get them to joel and the thing is understanding story structure then comes the ability to write very quickly and write regularly. Oh you need to be able to tell up every day and right to do this. In woods nobody about the quality of it then you need to have to level three which is the most important skill to rewrite the rubbish that you mentioned the previous day and have the stamina to go through and the tool that comes after that editing editing and leading law having good english grammar knowing your spelling <hes> using spellcheck on software all those things really help in <hes> <hes> then polishing refining the work <hes> then you know once the but but even as you're doing all of these things i think in washington kit during the toolkit is maintaining distance from the work and seeing if it flows if it's a hitting all the essential beats of the story and looking at it then thinking if <hes> you know essentially you writing staff just because you can ride this important to the story so those are awesome of the important to to georgia's own jit only ride scenes in a story that are relevant to the story that important anything living extraneous needs to be able to move like there should be nothing in a story. That's just let's flop. That doesn't achieve everything should be in service so you know getting a at gripping tale do keep you'll listeners in their seats at the next one to hong hold on a branch hanging on a brunch who's going to be fun. You know who i always wanted to hang with. It was <hes> taboo. I love taboo but she's very mysterious to me. You know i think she's <unk>. Donning woman session intended in obstacle it woman <hes> and she's amazing records on actor and but i just i just don't know i think if brunch would give me enough time to get to know her like what's family like what ah pets what does she read what interested in <hes> and just expedience as a as a woman in the industry in what oh jeez i in how she looks at how achievements or those things so taboo the actress would be someone. I'd do that one of the next one. Who's got your ground. We wouldn't locked or hot the big one. I mean jeez <hes>. I don't know to be honest with you and papa the lease speakers. I've been lighting for such a long time undestand. The organic nature of creativity is very few. People get got to be very lucky. People lucky enough to be successful in a creative shots. <hes> you know people take up writing it and they say oh jacob dialing did it but stephen king did in the you know like the point two percents of the millions of people who try and mail so i think i think <hes> you know the commercials or something. That's <hes> you know really a lottery then. You need to have the talent when she get but it's real lottery finding the outlet to be able to do that so i would more likely a graph i would <hes> nuking you get your own graph and i say this the speech that i made the audio craft conference in.

Figure prominently in in seeing unburied sing. So I thought, well. I should probably again. Probably begin with the scene where Cantor's debt. And that's the moment that I, that's the moment sort of the moment that you know that Jinju one into into the story was. So why one story with the go. I think it's an accurate reflection of. Of something of an event as usual where I come from. And I think that surprises from people when I tell them that we position. It's called usual where I come from to. On my family comes from less usual in sculling. But Intel is bring us powerfully visibly in two story into the circumstances of these people's lives where that kind of that data occurrence death banana. As Joe, Joe MS. Tell us about Joe. Why did he come from? Who is waiting to come from Joe? So normally when I. When I'm so I I cast about ride is right. So I use a brainstorm and try to figure out, you know what going into work on next than I liked to. Find ideas while working on a book. Right? So, you know, I'll I like I was working on salvage loans. I was getting nearing the end. I thought, okay, I need to know what I'm working on nice in. So I began to try to figure out who I wanted to write about next because for me is all about here right now, you know who who interested right about manouevres woman way or girl like, where am I going next. And. What happens is gonna sound a little nutty, but. Kinder- appears to me right when I'm doing my brain swimming Ramos driving care, and you will appear in in in some ways, whatever. I guess I'm ki whatever. Will draw me to that character that. I guess characteristic is appear via beginning. So clarify Joe. Joe pop into my head. He was thirteen year old races growing up in the modern south. And so what drew me to him is first of all the fact that he's experience for it. So he comes from a family, you know they're black or white, and because he's thirteen, he's at his age where he's trying to the now, right? So he's trying to figure out what it needs to be a man in Mayorga what it needs to be a black man, what it means to be a black man, our what needs to be son or father or a sibling either so much that he's wrestled with I, I think that he came to new the new space because I knew that though. Those. Struggles for him. Right, rose. These ideas would be the struggle that he was going through. Right? Trying to figure all of this out. We'll be very incident one with a father with a grandmother like PA. The mother like unit with a father, like Michael with a grandmother, like Joe's. It won't even acknowledge him. So he is, you know, he came to me, I and I, I wanted to stay with him because I wanted to figure out I wanted to. I wanted to go along on his journey in see what conclusions came. He came to. It makes complete sense, doesn't not who toll of writers begin with the character fascinated by the way stories natio- you'll noble plans overlap. I took into a writer not long ago. Could Monica, Andy. You said I find it very hard not to be thinking about something. All the time, even though you'd have food to the end of the book at the same time, the next Mike. Crofts taking on the next one's coming. This I mess. Leoni is mother who is a person with a great many personal problems. And. Husband is my co and he is his father. Michael is white. Leonie is black. And they have a very difficult Asian should. And soon Joe, Joe lips with his grandfather and grandmother. Cools impel doesn't choline Michael. Those this names. His relationship with Neo. Was as an extraordinary portrait of a mother, son relationship, just read purpose to has dental sister code my Canada who he is becomes basically responsible for because Leonie count any addiction problems. And he says, at one point of his mother to his mother, Haley groans cries. I don't want they're giving her that the mothers making motion for I didn't want any giving her that I know not what she thinks she needs to do, but she ain't. My shame should never heal nothing or grow nothing in her knife and she'd unknown. And the native on. He says. In same. See, I want to tell her, you didn't know what you're doing and then you ain't mum, but I don't why. Why we bubbling up in the more to the neighbors. The words hinted my throne, she might hit me. I did not to when I was younger when I was eight or nine. And then one day she slapped me across my face enough that every time I've been my mouth to her, so could against her. She did that. So I stopped. So Jerry Lipson this constant state of fear. How. When I read when I when I read judges and even have him so perfectly and you give him his own voice, how did you draw that out of yourself. He
