"Ran WTO sports. Much appreciated, Frank, now 8 15 on WTO. Well, new at the movies this weekend, the sequel to Shazam. This one is called fury of the gods. You play the part of a man for you or a lost boy. Give us the powers, or we could annihilate everything. Joining us live on Skype, film credit Christian toto of Hollywood in toto dot com. Welcoming Christian the first Shazam, I think plenty of action plus you have those emotional tones, the lead character and his friends are orphans that are important lessons about friendship, kindness, having your buddies back Sequels can be tricky though. How did they do here with fury of the gods? I think they did just fine. They really replicate the charm, the chemistry of that first film. This isn't a deep, dark superhero movie. It's light, it's airy, but like you said, it does have those family friendly tones and that bonding between the different characters, which really does count. Of course, it doesn't hurt to have Helen Mirren is one of the behead. The baddies in the film Lucy Liu is joining her. So the battle is clear. And you know, it's a sequel, it's a little bit bigger, a little bit noisier than the first film for sure, but Zach relife is excellent again as Shazam. And he's having a great time. And I think that is really infectious, his spirit, the humor he brings to the project. No one's taking this two two seriously, even though technically the world is at stake, but you know, you're having a good time. There are some flaws here. I thought the middle section sagged a bit, but overall, I think if you enjoyed the first film, first film, this is a Xerox copy, and that's not a bad thing. I wonder if there's a little reverse ageism going on with Helen Mirren as the bad person you don't usually see somebody in that age group as a superhero or a villain. You sure don't, and often as the older male stars who get into action movies like Liam Neeson, but she looks right at home he or she is great as always. And of course, she's got so much gravitas on screen. She can only help movie like this. Some Netflix news, a rom com is no longer in production over there, and some of us were looking at the price tag in our eyes were bugging out a little bit. A $130 million, quite a bit of money there. What's the story on this now for the moment failed RomCom? Yeah, there may be some other suitors who do come in and scoop up the project, but it is from Nancy Meyer. She's done some wonderful rom coms in the past, including something's got to give. And she's good at what she does. No problem there, and there were some big stars that were kind of floating around the project, including Scarlett Johansson and Owen Wilson, but this seems a uniquely Hollywood problem where you've got a massive budget for a movie that doesn't seem to need it. So rom coms can be enjoyable, but they're not action movies. It's not Fast & Furious. So I think part of the mystery here is why the price tag is so exorbitant, but maybe when it finally finds a suitor, they'll be able to trim it down a bit. And I've out of time, I'm always telling you this is we wrap up here, but I did want a few seconds on the Oscars. Everything everywhere, all at once, a force to be reckoned with with 7 golden statues and I'm just wondering when you have other great films tar the fable man's the banshees of in a Sharon, why they couldn't spread the wealth a little bit. It's a good question, but there is something about that Oscar sweep that momentum that takes over sometimes, not every year, but it certainly this year it happened. And listen, that movie won almost every other award from every other award organization. So not a surprise, but I really enjoyed the Oscars this year more than usual. I thought that the speeches were a wonderful. It was tons of gratitude, lots of emotion. I thought Jimmy Kimmel did a fine job. It felt a little bit like the Billy Crystal era of old. So I think that's not a bad thing. Christian, we'll talk again. Thanks a lot. Thank you. That's Christian toto with Hollywood in toto dot com.

"Nothing but a number, and one fan is calling out Hollywood for forgetting that. They tweeted. One of the worst things Hollywood ever did was stop making movies where Susan Sarandon gets to act slutty. Susan's response was epic, she wrote. There's still plenty of time. That's right. Ladies. If you had the chance, would you strip down again? I would entertain any reasonable. All the time. I walk around naked all the time. I think I look better naked than clothes. I bet you do. I bet you do. I don't know, I would have to entertain some serious cash. I would not do that just for fun. No. That is serious, traumatic experience that I need to be compensated for. But I would think about it. It's freeing, just like, you know, we don't have to be young ingenues that are like prepubescent or early 20s, it's like, you can be sexy, like a fine wine, you know, until you're whatever. Like Helen Mirren is still sexy. Yeah, totally. Most beautiful women. You know who's out for sexy? I like Angela Bassett. I would love to see her. Gorgeous. And sexy roles. Who else like older actors? It's an attitude, though, that they have. Yeah. Because sure, they're all really attractive women. They all look like they have this attitude that makes them all sexy and beautiful, confident, and you can't take your eyes off them. Well, if we talk about true equality, we have to let that happen. And so come on with the come on with it, all right? You know what? I love you. Save the LA cougar, I say. Exactly. What I love about today is that we have laughed. We have cried. We have to cheers.

And at 76, she's now the oldest star to grease the cover of people's beautiful issue. But Helen has a problem with the word beauty and prefers another. Most of us are not beautiful, but we have other stuff. Which is just as powerful as beauty. And I would like to see us celebrate those things. I love the word swagger. Because I think swagger means I'm confident in myself. I'm presenting myself to the world. I'm enjoying the world around me. Yeah. I love her so much. Me too. She's a powerful woman.

I mean, I don't take it personally. Right there. She's like, it was a big deal. Listen, aging is tough, man.

"Mom. You don't see that every day. But i guess eight is a possibility wasn't attached but they really thing about the movie it really deals with like maternal 'ambiguities and by the way it also opens up for the defer to moms to come in the next movie and be the bad guys team up with helen. Mirren by the way man that helen. Helen mirren driving with dom in the car. One of my favorite scene. One of the best things. I wanted them. I mean i know people talk about this. I wanted them to kiss sisters some really like major sexual chemistry we. She is so good and she's doing. So here's what i'll say. She's so hot she's doing such a great job she's so compelling but she's also selling that she's a killer driver yes she's it's hard to sell like stunt driving. Her character is meant to be doing while then effortlessly having a conversation with tom. What's so interesting about that. Sequence is i guess she stole some jewels from okay so she could have easily just walked away to way. Yeah just walk. Walk out of this. She wasn't going to your next location just to steal a car and he took off like a bat outta hell. It's like you. You have flagged for everybody around you like you're you're the person. Get that person. The car really fast. And here's a couple of things that were interesting about the first of all. I just wanna talk about pure joy and we talked about like dom being stoic character. When he sees her he lights up in a way that i like like. When i see vin diesel. Doing things that he goes on youtube and stuff like that. Like it's like he is in pure joy mode and that sequence. I was a little confused as like all right. So he's asking her questions and then she just drives them to the party like like. I felt like she had no intention of going to that party. She knows the jacob tomasz was paying her okay. Paint one of jacob gave her two missions or asked her to provide two things one of which was to drop off at this party and the other was dumbs asking her. How did jacob get a hold of this that and the other. And she's like i might have. I might have told him what that that information he wanted to things that information and for me to drop you hear. But how did he know that vin was gonna be. Yeah exactly would come to london and edvin would seek out helen mirren of course but it doesn't matter that there's a party that she drops him as a basically a rave scene on an english manor he ends up having a bunch of his own people. At right yeah all the girls. Well the those girls are hired by johnson and and the guy from the witcher those are like their people but then but then vin diesel has like housing van. Will those are the women that he has hired there so this is another question. The the interpol like i guess dom is like circumnavigated that phone call to interpol and guys like oh i'll use. My interpol team like dom has his own interpol team. That at the party Right that he didn't know he was going to write when he's loaded into that van. Yeah you i mean the thing about the movies is that dom is somehow always like six moves ahead of that and that way that is completely unknowable. In a way that is just. It's impossible to have planned this these steps knowing that the what the move the other would men we and we also have i mean i think we have followed dumbs journey. Pretty clearly oh my gosh. She got involved with nobody. There hasn't been like time on team. Young revealed to be cardi b. I was like what is happening. Like that to me is a callback to somebody. That didn't happen in any of the movies. And that's what you want it to be but it was like thank you so much for help me out because now i got this wait. We don't even know who you are. When did he like help out. A team of like female. Like but i'm like part of me is like. Are they seating this as some sort of like thing like are are we gonna like seem more of this elite female kind of like military team or i don't know what i don't know what they are. I was fascinated by that. Just as a reality. And i was like. Oh i wonder if they're going to be part of this going for and then they weren't but i was like oh. I wonder if this team will be now used by tom by dominant his crew. As w 'cause they're always they're always bringing more people in bringing more people in which i love. You know i love that. This this is the. I love Vin diesel understands that. The success of the movies is predicated of this. The modern iteration from five forward is to bring in other actors other people from all these other places and give them huge to give them give giving like bringing han back and not just bringing him back but giving han like a teammate. that is his character. The characters been raising this young girl that he found and people are after her. Because she's the key to unlock the mega weapon or whatever and that they're now just part of their inter reintroduced and just completely part of the team. I loved it sort of but then also one thing. Another thing i thought was missing was when the rock and jason stephen moore in it. It seemed like there was a bit more of a sense of humor around dawn as well and making fun of him. A little bit was part of the fun as well. And i think gossiping that has gone away. Yeah i know well the your they did. They did the james bond at him because what they do is they split the team up so effectively that you take the two guys and you put them with more funny guys and then you take vin. Separate him from everybody. Then you take jordan brewster and leading you. Put them on there like you. Almost it's almost like the alchemy of the separation was wrong. It's like they take roman. Yeah and then like kinda mix it up a little bit but you just like vin and really wanted into their thing you know. which is. It's it's roman. Natalie emmanuel entire east you know because the at one point they have the sender where where where yes the nerds then.

We have tokyo drift versus. Vegas is setting a high point sprit here. Tokyo drew versus fast. Four okay so holly grabs the mic. Tokyo drift is an american cinema classic. That was a blow out. Yeah i don't get for fast for is of the ones that are actually cannon undeniably. Everybody seen it. Can i explain to you. Why george d- both ryan answer not to watch fast for please share Laura wise it is skiffle ultimately asset the time it didn't seem so but ultimately us right lor laur wise. It is capable especially with the especially with the larger catalog after the way tokyo drift was shot especially the way. The entire movie ends with a downhill mountain side race. In the dead of fucking night in which you can actually track. What's happening to have four end in another dead of night dark race this time through tunnels under the us mexican border in which everything is so like. I saw this in the theater. And it's repeated on the dvd and it's repeated on the blu. Ray it's not a problem with any of the transfers this in the movie. It's you can't see shit. The editing sucks. It's muddy and you can't see anything and lower wise. There's nothing there that you can't get made up for like structurally in the future films. Pass the one thing that probably the one redeeming thing. I guess it gives you. Is this gal gadot. S- characters introduced right. It is but also they don't really give her back story shades not ever introduced as she's not ever introduced beyond the fact that she's she's introduced as being undercover right right. Yeah like she's just this person like she And also they don't give her a lot to do in this movie. She has a much better role in five. This is going to be unanimous straight. I also the one the one thing that four has going for it lower wise is that it puts it puts paul at this sexually perfect example. If you really really want to see pollen dom get back together. You have this movie lever. That getting back together is set up in the closing credits of fast one. You already know. They're gonna go do this like you already know that paul walker has flipped and his helping dumb break out of prison. You already know. He's headed that way. This movie is unnecessary. Plus four doesn't have one of the boys from home improvement in it shouting out. Zachary time ryan's harassed by the way division less. We make this all about four. I wanted to dame a handful of things from tokyo. Lucas black face one idiot from alabama and every rednecks from tokyo while the three universal redneck. Bonding okay there hillbillies everywhere all right. Hey i'm a guy. Jin adore it into it. The whole time to hon. Hai and three bowel baby bell gets a credit card in the long insane. List of people who have been in the fast franchise bow is up there for well. It's balanced tied with helen. Mirren bowel and helen. Mirren are in the same film franchise impossible without tokyo drift. Is i'm gonna repeat once again. That helen mirren only came back for fast nine because they promised they would let her drive. Also there's some beautiful. There's some beautiful emotional moments that here. Here's also another emotional core that resonates forwards and backwards throughout the chronology of the universe and it's hans standing on top of the building watching soccer and telling him this is my mexico like fucking chills. Man yeah another thing with three is. It's kind of the Ant man doctor strange of this universe where like. when does this happen I like if someone were to ask exactly two movies. It's between even. I'm like it doesn't matter i don't know live. I also appreciate that. This is the only movie that suggests that driving is a skill that can be learned. Yes every other movie. It's like you're either an awesome driver or a dangerous amount of your yes. I love it every other movie driving is about like timing and hurried jealousness like don when he rooms about wanting it through all these movies don wins a race. He looks at the other guy and he says something like too soon or late. You heard about how much work if you put in right by. Tokyo drift is like physics. Here here's roles practices. You've stupid american. It's not pushing a button. The hardest so tokyo drift because it takes place like kind of a us to the side in the orbiting universe does not have the key. Seen that makes in my opinion. All the rest of these movies so infinitely pleasurable. It does not have the putting the band together. Seen what it does instead is substitute. Bama boy learning to drive in very enjoyable montage scene of about equal length. Like you get that same okay. We're really putting the thing together now. Both when he is learning to drive when they are constructing a car yes yes they took what could have been a weakness in the series overall and replaced it with a component of. I would argue equal strength. So this is the this is the pac twelve. I spent time thinking very seriously about these. Also this is justin lin. Getting the reins back. That's super important for this. Cause yes the series really doesn't happen for all we make fun of in diesel. If he doesn't agree to come back for a cameo in the final moments of this film the rest of the series does not happen. We're going to advance turkey adrift Any objection being unanimous.

Don't like about the fast and furious movies is that they don't use their blinkers makes you drive with my on for quite a while. And then when i realized on i sorta overreact and i pushed the stick up too far and then it makes other blinker. Go on and then. I went back on the other side and so basically. It's like left blinker. Rightwing go left lincoln right-winger and that is a signal. What it says is. Don't drive near me paula. A new study in the journal of career assessment looked at kids dream jobs and concluded that we should be telling our kids not to do. What a gimme hint. Maybe you know live practically. They're not they're not gonna be rich. They're not going to be singers and not follow their dreams. Most kids aspired to jobs. That are incredibly difficult to obtain so parents should be teaching their children to consider multiple options to quote. Shoot for the moon but have a backup plan so they can land in the stars yet not by being an astronaut because almost no one becomes an astronaut right. All the responsibility to lower expectations shouldn't just be carried by parents right. We we need a disney song. That's like i want to work in retail much longer than expected late. Not shift at denny's late night shift to denny's which work in the song like onstage singing and in their head they're like i wanna work at knees. I don't know about you peter. I know.

Yeah sometimes switch ethnishity who's entertainers to say ethnicities by the way. I don't know that we're going to have much space to talk about this I appreciate that.

Review: The Crown Season 4
"Let's move on onto the crown. It's been about ten days most people who loved the crowd. I think we're done with the season. Sadly one of the season five do you know now for two years. Yeah because they filmed the two seasons together together usually with the cast. Because i think it's easier on production and then also with the cova of it all. I don't know when they will be able to start production so that there was a two year break between seasons two and three and i think there'll be more to your break. Who will you miss the most which actor being extremely honest. It's going to be joshua crowder for. I really am what a monster charles becomes in the second half of season four. And what an effect josh o'connor still has me. It's really quite something. I said this via text by the scene episode austrailia when they do the kind of the ballroom dance for the show which is a real event. I've seen a lot of side. By sides of the they got the close. Perfectly matched was so charming. I don't understand why all men don't learn how to dance ballroom dance because it was like ninety seconds and i'm sold completely infatuated. He can do whatever just absolutely despicable entitled selfish things. He wants to do for the rest of the season. And i'm like oh but this guy really charming. It's it's pretty sad. What happened with him and his family. Don't you think how about the australia episode again. Catch the chris ryan on the watch. Yes i thought it was effective. My i don't wanna say my struggle. Let me just say season for masterpiece. Love the show love all four seasons. Great great television will watch again. Can't wait it. This is a show about the crown. And honor show about princess diana and i know that intellectually but i hid obviously been waiting for the diana's season my whole life that sometimes i wanted a little bit more diana or just like there is a lot more to be told obviously it would be told from her perspective and it would just be a different show so i i hate criticism when they're like the show. Were another show. The australia episode was. I thought a very well done like condensation of the entire diana phenomenon into one also and in reality that like happened over a span of years and the up stage effect and everything that they kinda that they illustrate was was very real but develops over time. And it's like the media plays more of a role. And i think there is like a lot more stuff between charles and diana and you know there's all this stuff with What's going on with diana and her believe me and her family is shown and handled pretty sensitively but not always developed from her side. If that makes any sense yeah. I think if you also you read about her her mental health struggles were like it. Very extensive and it was went beyond believe me and i thought that like it was handled well but also like i think it's worth noting that there is also many other episodes throughout her life or at least heard adult life. Yeah exactly and i understand why because they are as loop says in the very last scene of the season. This is a show about one woman. And it's not diana it's about elizabeth and it's about that institution so and you could do one hundred episodes of the eighties in the uk. Like there's so much going on. So i understand the choices that they had to make narrative in order to fit it all in and i thought it did paint a like a pretty thorough picture. But i'm always gonna want more. I just really didn't care for her monologue on the plane about the baby. Not that i thought it was like. I'm not like she's wrong but i just thought that was like emigrants were seen. I was just like this is working for me. But i thought that the stuff with charles's was pretty good. Yeah i think. I continue to think. I'm a porn is like astonishing and i've been thinking a lot about what you said about how you're not a the huge a fan but that the performance kind of stuck out to you and i get and i think that that is really perceptive and for me kinda part of what makes it work. I don't want to say it's like intention early. But diana did not fit in to this family. It was like different energy. A different vibe. And there's a great line in the queen. Which is the peter morgan. movie about. Princess princess diana's death and the week after it. Which i recommend starring helen mirren great stuff as sort of like great crown prerequisite or if he also available on netflix. Right now justify But the character in the queen says you have to remember that there. Diana are diana or two completely different people. And i think the performance captures a lot of that and like the scene. Went diana's trying to hug the queen and they're they're talking at each other and it's not just that they have philosophical emotional differences but they just come from different worlds. they have different emotions different energies. It's like total total mismatch. And that's definitely part of the problem. So when she is making her stands are expressing her. Diana s. sometimes it's really heartbreaking and sometimes are like what are you doing. This is completely wrong as encapsulated that julia did not worry me about which i appreciate from spoiler episode perspective but from a personal perspective. The phantom of the opera video cassette was hilarious and excruciating and. I do think the first time. I like fully pulled the blanket up over my head when watching it. I didn't actually watch it. The first time i had to just kind of sit like that and know that it would end soon and then i read wound to watch the facial expressions that is bisciste. Yeah and i you know i don't. I don't think that happened in relaxed. Maybe it did. I've never read it. And i think i would remember it but really the billion joel performance israel israel. Yeah and it in caps elites. Maybe i think that poor diana who had a lot going on and as you said like a lot of mental health issues and believe me and didn't have any support like her family was not very helpful or totally absent in the case of the crown. But there were also some things that just really ideologies didn't align how about that and and that scene shows you why who it really is just like so much. I can't believe we're only gonna get one season about mc oran. I feel like i m not like her biggest fan but also feel like switching the diana character after one season. I don't. I'm not really in favor of but Must be a fairly significant time job. i'm curious to see how season five goes
Bleacher Report's Sam Toles on building franchises that last
"We're going to do this. Live recording of the digital podcast and. I'm luckily joined by Sam. Tolls of as you know Sam as chief content officer at butcher point. Sam Thank you my pleasure. Thank you for having me okay. So Sam you've now been at bleacher for here about ten ten and a half months. What attracts you to the brand as I was thinking about leaving. Mgm The CEO Hired me. They're left under strange circumstances. And so when my contract was coming up started exploring options and you know really great job market especially if you're content person like there's tons and tons of opportunities and happened to get a call from recruiter and I knew report and the role seemed interesting but comparing it to sort of what I had done. And what my thought. My career trajectory was. I wasn't fully sold especially you know. Publishing world has been a little bit rocky and More I learned about the brand I met dave the founder. I met Howard our new. Ceo or not that was new at the time CEO and the team and every conversation. I had and every time I drove into and thought about this brand. It became an obsession of mine to actually start to work here at it. It it is something for me as I look at the media landscape embodies all the things that I think. Next generation media companies have to have engaged deep passion audience an audience that is predominantly under thirty five years of age seventy percent of our social audiences under the age of thirty five at scale but with that depth of engagement connected to have fully vertically integrated media enterprise so that you have no ceiling to the ambitions as you develop content. You can literally ladder it up into a division. Hbo or CNN. If the idea is good enough and big enough it has no ceiling as far as making an impact on audience and the nature of sports being unique in the sense that you know I think media now is all about tribal audience. People are self selecting. The difference between traditional linear media was the goal of collecting a wide. Morpheus audience of general consumers has now been replaced by this universe of social where anyone in this audience for anyone listening to this has their feed whether instagram or twitter or facebook and that feed is extremely personalized. You're very specific interests and passions. And you know sports is unique in the sense that not only. Is it deeply deeply tribal in the sense that people care very much about it but it also has the breadth of audience that gives it scale and so thinking about all those unique assets really really inspired me to move across the country and join biard as their CEO? So let's talk about the tribal element. I mean anyone who listens this. Podcast knows that. I'm Big Philadelphia Eagles Fan so I'm definitely part of this strange tribe And I do think sports are an interesting glue that that connects people in communities. How does that manifest itself in the brands that now makeup be are you saying the portfolio brands? Yeah so look the interesting thing is that we we started as a company in our founders premise. Was there's all of this information about sports. All these tribal audiences care about sports. But there's nothing connecting those things together and so through newsletters and alerts And ultimately our pivot in evolution into social. We've become really the experts I mean. If you're an eagles fan they know what your favorite players are. They know sort of your. What kind of kicks you like because of what you what you Engage in. It's very very much a part of you. And it's sort of expressed in the in the way our audience interfaces with with the platform and so on through that we've done more and more segmentation looking at the audience as a whole but the things that they're passionate about so out of that you see that we have specific verticals that deal sport by Sport Football being one of the most popular sports is no surprise very very exciting to our audience and so we have a dedicated gridiron channel that dives in To football specifically people love sports betting. And we've built recently A. B. R. Betting Channel that specifically talks about betting in the sports base and. I'm sure we'll talk a little bit more exciting area. Kicks is the same way and music. Kicks sneakers yes sorry for the for Layman's The nikes the Adidas new balance? Whatever shoe your favorite athlete whereas it's become an entire tribe into itself their entire sites dedicated to une boxing shoes and people that anxiously wait for Nike's newest announcement and that's very much related to sports because athletes are connected to their shoes and fans are connected they're athletes and it's a Or how to use interested in in how expansive the brand can be. 'cause you know going into two sneakers obviously yes. I mean athletes wear sneakers. But you're really talking about a different area. It's not sports. It's it's It's fashion you alter its culture but I'd so I'm wondering how far you you see being able to stretch the brand into these areas like I mean like the Serge Ibaka show. That's it's yes. He's an athlete. Fortunately played against the sixers last year. But you know that's a food show. Look I think the interesting thing about sports in general is that it should of the media verge. The media side of sports is an outcropping of news right like they grew up next to each other. So News and sports live desks commentators talking about the topical events because where it says live and happening in iterative and you have to have coverage and news in similar sense but if you think about sort of media and entertainment and how that has evolved you know the unscripted show of two thousand one would not work today because there's the the formulas and the and the ways that those shows have been developed by talented craters is constantly trying to catch up with audience. Audience Interests and passion. And so when you think about what that means for sports and sort of how sports has been done look I think. Espn's thirty for thirty is a terrific Docu series show but even today people talk about that as if it was the show but it was ten. Plus years old that series it was initially supposed to be thirty episodes. Hundred plus episodes later passed the thirty. And what I think hasn't been done or hasn't really been explored is the notion of how to tell stories around the world of sports in a different way. So like what's an example well think about our untold stories? Show right it's an interview show in its essence right. We're bringing football players that have really unique stories to tell and master to staffy. And who's our was a was a writer here and is now on camera. Talent is interviewing them about things that they haven't necessarily told the world but instead of just sitting down at a desk we go into an immersive kind of storytelling environment. We'VE LEANED INTO ANIMATION. Which is something that we are sort of became known for early with game zones and the champions and Gridiron Heights We've taken that kind of storytelling. To bring to life for our audience a story that was not filmed might have been very personal private about You know someone getting high before they went and got on the field and why they did that or you know the first big dinner that someone had you know with the the owner of the team and so we bring that storytelling to live through animation. And it's a different kind of flavor that resonates with our younger audience. It's a simple example battle stations which is our first pilot under. My leadership is in the gaming space. That was simply you know. Imagining the world of cribs as as it relates to people who are enthusiastic about gaming and connecting sports fans to the world of gaming. So you have Darren Fox and our host Censor getting together at his home. You see his home but more importantly you dive into his gaming setup you find out what he cares about what controller he uses. What monitors uses. What audio equipment uses. So if you're a nerd about gaming and you're a nerd in that space but you're also a sports fan who happens to love gaming and you're on our gaming channel you get to experience something kind of storytelling that you haven't seen in the sort of traditional straight down the line sports media landscape so it sounds like the kinds of storytelling. You're focused on is not sort of where biard began. I may began like as a collection of blogs text. Sure I mean text I think is an incredibly valuable part of what we do. It's a motive it's IP generating. As obviously the the world mourned today Kobe's death we incredible piece by Mirren Fater About G G their daughter and her contributions and what that looks like. And you know she was thirteen years old. That's very resonant with a lot of the audience that belongs on. Biard curious about you know the relationship that she had with her father and what that was like what you know what her experience was growing up in a basketball family and how she matured into the wonderful young woman that she became and the relationship she had with her father. It's very relevant to our audience and I think about the stories that we're leaning into now as vehicles to ladder up Additional Ip whether they become audio podcasts. Investigative Journalism pieces that we can then take to a narrative closed ended podcast series. Or if it's something that's a bigger broader story could that become a docu series because that becomes something you know that would live an HBO? Max and that new universal belong on CNN films and you're thinking Ip not like posts correct. I mean I think that all of this is about expanding and raising the ceiling of what we are can be you. You don't need that comes from the traditional media world traditional. I mean the the studio and platform world to continue. Just doing the expected. I mean we want and expect to move up the value chain and continue while doing that to keep connected with that audience that everybody in the In the traditional business really wants to reach that younger demographic so one of the other parts is is that is now part of Warner Media. So the ours. Big Warner media's gigantic. Finding you know. Where do you guys fit in within the gigantic? Battle Star. Look I think that It is I mean. At and T. R. Corporate Parent is the ninth largest company in the World. And it gives us again that enormous ceiling of opportunity that the way in which biard can grow is boundless and contents. I think one of the things that we have that is unique is an audience That really loves and engages with our brands whether there are portfolio brands or with VR national as a whole House of highlights and they love our flavor of storytelling.

Farming and climate change
"Growing focus on environmentally friendly farming methods with Leslie hook an Emiko terrorism. I'm a co can you tell us a bit about into goes initiative to pay farmers to store, carbon, so I'm plots absorb carbon dioxide from the Ariza grow, and then they release it back to the air and soil as they decompose? What indigo is saying is bomb as we want you to restore so health and increase its ability to store, carbon, and we'll pay for it so farming practices, like, minimal tilling of the soil planting cover crops in between main crops and crop rotation. Having livestock Rome in the fields that can all help the soil capturing carbon is this different than what farmers normally do? Well, traditionally these were what bombers have been doing, but one day intensive bombing practices, like using chemical pesticides, and fertilizers have a rare disloyal health and scientists estimate the across cropland soils as carbon concentration about one percent in this compared to about three percent for naturally. Consistence like forests, I guess, when I'm struggling understand, is how much carbon this is going to save in how they're going to measure it. Leslie. What do you think it is very hard to measure, how long the carbon stays in the soil and to measure each individual plot? And that's always been one of the challenges with this approach. We know that globally. There is a lot of carbon stored in the soil. The top two meters of soil around the earth, contain about three times as much carbon as the atmosphere. So there is a huge store of carbon, they're already and as Emiko says a lot of it has been lost. Scientists I've spoken to have often pointed this figure of four hundred and fifty billion tons of CO, two essentially lost from the soil because of modern farming practices. So that's about a decade's worth of global emissions, and that's going into the atmosphere. So it has had a huge impact, and there's a huge sort of opportunity. Here, but one it is quite difficult to quantify, and I think indigo correct me if I'm wrong, they are planning to use satellite, imagery, and a very novel approach to sort of measure, what the farmers are doing. So indigo says that it will use remote sensing technology from satellites, and satellites, these days, come measure, everything from radiation to see a two levels, so that's what they're going to rely on. And the companies also part of a study with tens of thousands of farms looking at how carbon is stored in soil. But they've also launched a competition calling on innovators and entrepreneurs to come up with scaling up measurement for carbon, so it's a bit of a moving target. It's a cool to arms. But it's you know, I think it's opened a little people's eyes into the potential there. Can you explain a little bit more about the business model and how exactly this is going to be financed? So indigo is going to use its own money to pay them as initially and then settled on the. The so-called common credits to feed companies and other cultural companies what's in it for indigo? I know they've invested in authors of environmental initiatives. And that's kind of their main thing, but how are they going to benefit from this? So one of indigo businesses is selling my Kirby -als to form. So coating seeds with microbials, which is essentially what Sinaga as well, but using those microbials to help bombs reduce chemicals, Passat specializes, so that hoping is farmers turn to traditional soil-friendly methods that they can increase sales. The but also, if arm as have more organic and less pass tied less fertilizer used crops that increases the premium the famous can get and indigo also of his like an EBay for grains. But they offer this marketplace, where palm is combined sell that premium get grains to buzz so they hoping. It will kind of ties together. But I don't think we've said immediately in this scheme, how much to farmers stand to make because they're effectively being subsidised paid to do this. We'll exactly so indigo in two thousand nineteen says the pharmacies lineup this year. They'll pay fifteen dollars for every tonne of carbon. They've managed to store in the soil and this year, the hoping to sign up more than three thousand growers covering more than one million acres, and then eventually going to take these carbon credits and sell them onto company. Exactly Leslie, what do you think about that idea? Is it something that's just a novel need idea? Does it actually have the potential for a bigger impact? Why I think it's interesting because it's one of many efforts that we're starting to see to store more carbon as global emissions hit a record high last year. The gap between what the world should be doing to limit. The worst impacts of global warming and the reality of what's going up in the atmosphere is just growing, and so more people are thinking about what's called negative emissions acknowledges, and these are just ways to. Store carbon in the soil. Underground in the ocean in trees. It kind of covers any way that you're pulling CO two out of the air, and storing it or sequestering it in a place where it won't be released and soil has really been one of the most interesting areas for this sort of negative emissions technology because that's nature's own way of storing a lot of carbon. So in a way it's sort of a low hanging fruit. There's not some technological mystery about how this works so have been a lot of really interesting efforts to try and replenish, the carbon that stored in soil, which can be good for the fertility of the soil and for the crops, as well as good for the atmosphere and from agricultural point of view, the debate about how much bombing and agriculture contribute to emissions is also been growing, and I think policymakers, quite aware. Of the debate around that. And I think they're more actively wanting to find ways to help reduce negate emissions out of agricultural, farming and this is potentially one of the ways have you seen that, as well as yeah, there's a lot of emissions from the cultural sector a lot of greenhouse gas emissions. There's methane emissions from cows. There's emissions from easel trucks, there is a Monja emissions that arise when you fertilize the fields. There's a lot of different types of environmental impacts from farming that are coming under more of a focus. I mean here in the UK there's a lot of discussion over payments to farmers that would reflect sustainable farming practices and reflect the positive environmental impact of what farmers are doing mostly it'd be great to understand just how much of an impact farming has on greenhouse gas emissions as maybe compared to other sources. Well, most people don't instantly think of the farm, as a huge source think of sort of the coal power play. Belching black smoke. But in many countries agriculture is the second largest source of emissions after the power sector globally. It accounts around thirteen percent of greenhouse, gas, emissions now, different farms have different types of environmental impact so cattle farms dairy farms, have a larger impact on greenhouse gas emissions because of the methane that's emitted by cows and farming practices can also have a big impact on emissions and previously. This was overlooked, a lot of the efforts on decarbonisation have really focused on getting rid of coal and cleaning up the power sector, more renewable energy and farming is a very difficult sector to introduce change into because you have so many farmers so many different types of crops, but it's an area where a lot more companies and policymakers are increasingly focusing and how optimistic are people in the sector that initiatives like the indigo one, maybe two? Taken in aggregate are actually going to make a difference. I think there's going to be a lot more research and a lot more funding going into programs like this, we've seen researchers looking at what type of plants can help store more carbon in the soil. We've seen companies like indigo starting to pay farmers. So I think this is an area that's going to see a lot of growth.

What to expect from this year's G20 summit
"But as the Japanese presidency seeks to steer the world's most powerful economies away from confrontation over trade questions have also been raised over Tokyo's apparent move to bow to US pressure by watering down its draft G twenty communicate on tackling climate change. Joining me in the studio to enlighten us about these issues off. Chris Giles the FTC economics editor and Leslie hook our environment. Correspondent Kris, why don't we start with you? There is a trade war going on. We know that how bad is it? How worried should we be? Well, I think there's two ways of looking at this one is if you look at the big. Brewed aggregates how much has the world grown in the in recent quarters. And what are the big forecast look like any counc- this trade war in those numbers really at all? But then if you look at what's bubbling under particularly manufacturing and trade is mostly still in manufacturing goods related. You see that in confidence indicators, the latest pay my for example, went below fifty for the first time since twenty twelve's of his loss of loss of confidence. You see the trade numbers, the trade volume flows have been falling recently, and you see that where the trade war has been most definitive between US and China. You see some very large drops in trade. So since October last year Chinese imports of US goods has fallen by about twelve percent. That's an a remarkable in a short time, say, sounds like you saying, we could be like that cartoon character that hasn't quite realized yet he's. Ron over a cliff if that's the case, what should we hope for from this g twenty meeting? I think that is exactly the case in the worry isn't what directly tariffs will do to trade flows. It's more the, the confidence impact of it is like, if you're a company wanting to invest somewhere and you think, well, this investment might be literally worthless, if something happens in global trade, which means that I can't export do the things I wanted to do with that investment that I'm not going to go ahead. I'm going to wait. And so that's the, the worry, what do we expect? But we're not expecting a resolution we're not expecting the tariffs that have been put on particularly by the US on two hundred billion dollars worth of imports from China at twenty five percent. We're not expecting those to disappear. The Treasury Secretary to the US Steve Mnuchin said that he reckoned that we were ninety percent of the way to deal without actually means essentially zero present the ways deal. There's always easy to do. I. Ninety percent last ten percent is always the difficult based, and this is exactly the rhetoric that was being used in April before the trade talks break down. So I don't think we're expecting a huge amount. If you could get something along the lines of talk, starting again at a detailed officials level and President Trump may be withdrawing the threat to expand the two hundred billion goods, which are subject to tears to five hundred billion, which is what the coun- threat is that at least you could diffuse some of the tensions, and we could get into maybe a world where we might have some point later in the year, see a resolution but I think that's about it from the G twenty this weekend. Let's, let's turn to the other issue. I mentioned at the start the trade war might be the short-term biggest threat to the world economy, the long term threat to the economy and maybe human civilization is climate change. And you have some bad news on that front. That's right. So the draft communicate prepared by Japan which could still change a lot on depending on the outcome of meeting as very weak language on climate change. It doesn't vow to cut emissions or make any grand statements about how the Paris agreement is irreversible or anything like that, which wasn't previous communicates. But this reflects a very sad reality or difficult reality, which is at the g twenty nations don't agree on climate change. The US plans to pull out of the Paris climate agreement. Saudi Arabia has also been very much dragging its heels when it comes to emissions cuts and what we're seeing now is global emissions hit a record high last year and the science. The modeling makes it more and more clear. What the impacts of climate change already are in terms of heat waves extreme weather rising sea levels, but the gap between what we know we should be doing versus what's actually happening in the world is just growing bigger, and bigger and the evidence suggests that the G twenty is not going to be able to do much about that, at least not this meeting if the draft communicate that you have seen is what comes into the final, Tex is that a deterioration from what we've seen before because it's been it's been a while. Now since Trump pulled out of the Paris agreement is there anything new here, or is it just a continuation of bad news for the last two years? The climate portion of the communicate has been what we call a g nineteen plus one. So basically, nineteen major economies agree on language about climate change. And then the US had its own paragraph where it says, actually, we the United States think this. So there has not been consensus among the twenty countries and. And what we've seen from Japan is, they're trying to go for the lowest common denominator and right of very watered down draft that everyone will agree to in this version climate change is just one of a list of environment concerns, along with marine pollution, biodiversity loss and resource scarcity, so they're positioning, it as just one of the many challenges that were working on rather than the challenge now in the past, the G twenty used to have much more consensus on climate change. In fact, in two thousand and nine ten years ago, there was a consensus statement on the need to phase out subsidies for fossil fuels in all the G twenty countries agreed to reduce their subsidies, or fossil fuels in the medium term, and that has not really happened. So what we've seen is even when the twenty does agree on something. It might not translate into reality. Even then. So does that mean we should expect unless you expect some positive surprise from from this weekend? Summit should we expect different parts of the world to go. Oh. Off their own separate ways on whether and how much they tried to combat climate change. Well, this year is quite a crucial year for the global climate commitment, because countries that signed the Paris agreement, including the US, because they haven't formally withdrawn, just that they plan to withdraw countries signed the Paris climate agreement have to come up with new tougher targets by twenty twenty. So we're expecting to see entries up. The ante we've seen the US. We've seen the UK, adopt an zero legislation in the EU has had very serious discussions about adopting an zero goal. So this year is seen as being quite critical for determining that direction. But I think we won't see the twenty influence the shape of that. Whereas in the past that g twenty was a place where there were key negotiations and deliberations that really set the tone for the rest of the climate talks. That's no longer the case. I want to come to a point where it seems to be that the trade agenda, and the climate agenda come together or maybe clash. Because if different parts of the world, Golez separate ways on climate change policy, then that conflicts with trying to keep the world trading system. Open doesn't it because countries that don't make an effort on climate change will be more competitive in terms of exports and can out compete the countries that do put in place, stricter carbon rules. And then the pollution is just going to move to different countries. Some economists have called full tariffs carbon border taxes tariffs on the border to penalize stop trade limit trade with countries that don't pull their part of the Boden is that something Leslie, you see happening at all as countries get very serious about their zero emission skulls, and we're expecting France and also Germany to consider adopting these goals than having some type of carbon border adjustment. Does become a crucial part of that because you can't take the emissions of your own economy, two zero without implementing some type of? Tariff on steel, and cement, and all the goods that are getting getting shipped in. But we haven't seen a lot of political movement in the short term on this issue of the carbon border adjustment. I think given what Chris just said about the global trade war. The trade frictions, there's so much tension already that I think, politicians are reluctant to add one more item to the agenda, when it comes to trade talks, which you think Chris will climate change worries come to interfere with trade discussions, not immediately. I fully agree with Liz as dot something for now. But it is something people being talking about, in fact, for for a long time because theoretically, it makes a huge mental sense to have a border adjustment. Because if the UK goes to zero but just imports all its carbon essentially from China, then that doesn't help the world because global warming is global and so is traditionally been a French concern border, carbon border adjustments. And I'm so slightly surprised micro hasn't been making. All of this, because it's a it's a natural. I mean not, not just natural for FRANZ, but it's actually theoretically natural that you would, if you were wanting to have a competent tanks to make you as a route to going to Sierra missions, you want that on your consumers so you want you'll consumers, ultimately, to be paying for the call when they use weather. It comes in something that's produced in your country or whether it comes from something even ported. They don't want to make imports more favorable now. This is always been very difficult in the trading system, because it could contravenes WTO rules to do this will people think it contravenes WTO as nobody's. No one's done it. So no one knows. But it probably does contravene the retail rules. Although we gotta remember that. The WTO is a particularly weak body at the moment, and the US, ironically has, has essentially new to the power of its dispute resolution settlement body. So whether these rules would ever, be enforceable is, is quite a visit quite big question. But in lots of ways this is this is a subject that wants countries have gotten zero target that will be a lot more pressure, particularly from that domestic manufacturing sectors to think about this. And I think it won't go away will come up. It's not something for this year, but it will definitively come up, particularly if there are countries that are producing quite a lot but not having a very competent oil company emission standards in the same way that other countries won't to be forward, looking and apart from the legal issue. This suggests that politically at least if the US and China don't vanish to resolve their. Trait differences. It will sort of open up the goal will politics to other countries to stop to respect trade rules, an intimate less, perhaps for this reason, but this opens up a sort of scenario way, global cooperation in global tombstones on Raveling, and you end up having regional locks, issuing regional interests me, if we go down that route. Do you think that the g twenty is no longer fit for purpose in your field, and then more mental field Leslie? What do you think? Well, it's interesting, one of the campaigners that I interviewed a couple of days ago, made the point that the D twenty has always been born out of crises various types of crisis financial crisis. Let's respond to a crisis. But when it comes to the climate crisis hasn't really been able to respond in a meaningful way. And I think that's because there simply isn't consensus between the G twenty countries about what to do and. Amount of summits, can sort of paper over that fact if individual countries take extremely ambitious goals to cut their own emissions to net zero, for example, that only really works. If other countries are doing similar things, and I think this tension between what an individual country can do. And then what's the impact on the whole global system is going to become more and more parent over the next years and decades, we have to remember that the g twenty is not global government. It cannot take decisions in that sense. It's not something that has any enforcement mechanism it can only do things if literally all the members agreed to do it. So where it's always come on stuck is where there's disagreement and safe has a fundamental disagreement as Leslie, it's been outlining on what the climate change, whether global warming is happening than the G twenty is notable that will they've ever been able to deal with it. It works as a very useful forum for leaders to actually thrash out some of these. Issues. But if they still disagree at the end of that discussions in that bilateral meetings, etc. Then you're living in cloud-cuckoo-land, if you think the g twenty's going to resolve something, and it sounds like this is happening on trade as well as on climate is happening on trade. So we used to have sort of boilerplate language in every communique saying, we would never as the G Tweety, no g twenty country would ever impose tariffs or any other trade restrictions on each other. And this, this health through the whole crisis, where people will very worried. It wouldn't hold but it's not held a tool since since Donald Trump has been elected US presidents. So it's a good vehicle for agreement so long as people already agree. Yes. Well that's a bit of a somber note to end on end. We must that's it for this week. My thanks to Crisanto Leslie, thank you very much. And thanks everyone for listening till next week goodbye. Here's a few words from Dame. Helen Mirren telling us what she's a fan of.

Sexual Harassment Has Always Been a Part of Hollywood
"Look, for as long as Hollywood has existed, the casting couch has been around. It's so familiar, it's become hackneyed. Over the years, film big shots like David O. Selznick, Alfred Hitchcock, they've all been accused of sexually assaulting young actresses, but only in the last decade, I guess because fearing industry reprisals, actresses have begun to speak out, like Charlize Theron, Andy Newton, Gwyneth Paltrow, Helen Mirren, Zoe Kazan, and others, they came out and shared their stories of sexual harassment on the set or during productions or during auditions. Charlize said at one point that she thought it was a little odd one night when she went to go on an audition on a Saturday night at a director's house in LA, but, you know, she thought maybe that was normal. So she goes, she told us to okay magazine in 2009. And the guy comes out, she won't say who it is, but he's wearing Hugh Hefner type pajamas, and she goes inside and he offers her a drink, and I'm thinking, my God, this acting thing is really relaxed. I mean, that chicks this blind because then it becomes very clear that guy wants to bang her and Charlie says no, not gonna happen, got the wrong girl, buddy, and she beats it out of there. So I have a lot of respect for her good for her. I respect her bravery and fuck the guy for trying some shady shit like that, but there's a lot of hypocrisy here in Hollywood, man. That really makes you wonder, who's feeling what? A few years ago, more than a 130 Hollywood heavyweights signed an online petition demanding that the decades old statutory rape conviction against Roman Polanski be overturned and two of the signers were Woody Allen and Harvey Weinstein. And by the way, it's also important to know that since that initial rate, there were three more tagged on to old Roman plants. So he's done his share of illicit stuff in and out of Hollywood. So there clearly are going to be people in this town who don't think that Harvey allegedly did anything wrong. Whether they speak up in his favor, that remains a mystery. What is an industry is that reporters are going to keep digging. And they're the ones who are going to keep talking to actresses who don't want to talk. And that shows you right there that fame is a
