"And embarked on a working holiday picking fruit in the rural town of batla. As aster approached, neyya made plans to travel to Sydney to meet her sister for nola and brother Kieran, so they could travel back to armadillo to spend day star with their family. But name never made it home. Investigations into names disappearance have now spanned two decades. There have been numerous sightings of neem reported over the years, along with multiple theories about what might have happened. But all leads have met dead ends. In 2012, a coroner ruled that a person or persons unknown had taken name's life. But to date, no one has been held responsible. Neither name nor the backpacking gear she had with her when she went missing has ever been found. I was first introduced to name sister for nola just over two years ago by Lauren O'Keefe from the missing persons advocacy network. At the time, for nola had been listening to some true crime podcasts and began to wonder if a podcast could help her family get answers in their search for name. Both in Australia and overseas we've seen the success podcasts have had in helping spread the word about long-term cold cases. And in some instances, even bringing resolution for families. I started working with phonola shortly after our initial introduction, and in that time, I've seen firsthand just how much names family and friends miss and care about her. The case file team is dedicated to helping get some answers about what happened to nan. This week marks the 20th anniversary of names disappearance. But her family has never stopped looking. Working with names family, I am doing a deep dive into her disappearance in the hopes that a podcast series with an international rage might bring her loved ones her much needed answers. The 2002 fruit picking season in batlow, where name disappeared from, attracted fruit pickers from all around the world. Backpackers and travelers converged on batlow to work the season, then dispersed across the country and the world. So somewhere in the world, someone might hold the key to what happened to nan. Will you in batlow around Easter in 2002? Do you know someone who was? If not, you can still help. Name had numerous belongings with her when she disappeared, including her SLR camera, tripod, backpack, tent, and much more. You might have found something or heard something. Did you ever see a 1969 black Holden HK hearse driving in batlow, or the surrounding area around Easter in 2002? The hearse had been reconditioned into a private use vehicle and was being used as a makeshift camper van by fruit pickers who were staying in that low. Name was known to travel in the vehicle a few times. If you know anything, please contact us. Something that doesn't seem significant to you might help us put the jigsaw pieces together. Your information could be the missing piece. Please.

"Your child should be able to be trained to administer the tests themselves. I would get some home tasks and practice. It's not fun is not a good feeling. Nobody likes giving a covert tests. But i do think that your little one could be instructed to do it themselves. Having control over pudding swab of their own knows as opposed to bang at the mercy of someone else to unfortunately like the last nurse did what they were afraid of stabbed them. But i think that could be an easy solve. You know. it's gonna take some time maybe not as solve but you know get some snacks. Get the table and a hand held mirror and sit down. And you know demonstrate doing it yourself and teach your child how to do it in when they're taken to a testing facility. Hopefully they'll be allowed to do it themselves. A lot of places will let you do it or require you to do it yourself and if not you know hopefully once. They've got acquainted with doing it safely themselves. They'll feel a little bit less scared at the idea of allowing someone else to do it for them as for the dentist us to do some research and see what kind of pediatric dentists. There are in the area that specialized in scared patients. There are a lot of them out there. We had a great experience but niamh went back to the same dentist office with her father and saw different dances and was able to get her. Failing without the straps. You know just had somebody with a really remarkable bedside manner who was able to get her calm and cool out and i think that was something like dentistry. It can't be on the parents or even with the hospital. And i know we don't always have a lot of options when it comes to. Who's going to the dentist The doctor but if you have any. I think it's really important that your you exercise in here because there's a lot of it's difficult for a parent who's not a medical professional to be.

"Just finding someone can be. I mean i think again mustered white. Maybe i'm pulling from that side. When i when i don't think it's as big of a risk as you do but i mean we have different pasts in that to like we talked about. I mean i. I think burger in longtime i was very i was able to separate it pretty clearly on the line. I mean but that was one of junior who knows now right. Yeah and i also don't know if i if i'm secure enough where i would feel not intimidated but i would feel like you're getting better sex with someone else or you'll more sexually attracted to someone else in so then our relationship just becomes more logistical or you're choosing to love me because I make sense or because you know on the father baby or you know these things now. I don't know how to take on i i. I don't know i'm still open to. I think this is just one of those things that you just continue to come back do not conversations with over and over and over again and either at some point you just decide now. This is never gonna work professor at some point. You decide that you're gonna try something out so going back to us in this pattern. I thought the i think that It's actually gotten better than i haven't with this pattern hasn't come up but do you disagree will keep up pretty recently made it came up maybe just a few weeks ago or something but what did i say. All manner told the past Remember i mean it started. Here's the thing. I somebody like me. Who is or at least was raised. A massively codependent It really only takes you coming in and sitting down for me to completely without question. No what's going on for you in the conversations going so it's a felt sense for me. I know exactly what's going to happen before you said And i remember very clearly on a month ago or maybe it was a little longer ago This conversation coming back up again and it doesn't always look the same municipal and looked and felt a little bit different. But it is this kind of like I don't know you have this kind of like. Oh i remember because we were talking about. I remember saying to you. That the ebb and flow contraction and expansion of relationships is completely. And you having you have a really hard time in my opinion with that concept you hard time when the concept that it's super normal for couples to be like all into each other physical whatever and then it kinda go dark for awhile and average come back. Go dark And as i stood labor saying you expansion contraction is over relationships in you struggling with that so yes but dark. Dark is an ebb and flow. Dark dark is on the other side. I mean as wrong word. But i mean going dark as i'm thinking of like the tv show right. It's like like going to argue in like you're you're in between seasons. It's not going aren't like it's never gonna come back from death. I'd it'd be like at but expansion contraction ebb and blow that to me feels normal and for you at least in my experience of this topic. It feels like if we get to a place where there is an abbot. That is a little bit too. Long i'm hyper sensitive to your feeling of. Should it being too long. And so i could feel it and you can sense it in new And i think sometimes that's what my kicks in. I probably will do things or say things are more for your sake than line. So if you feel that but you don't express it then. I have no idea. I think that our patterns Broken or dissolving. But in your mind you feel it and you realize oh here we go again But if you don't express it in your Your a different wavelength. You're seeing the relationship differently. Niamh yeah my question would be to you. How do you put something like that into words. What it's it's very liked. Felt sense and i'm not always entirely sure how to actually put it in towards mostly title-winning my because it might not even be. That might be that. I'm gloomy or a heavy and has nothing to do with even you maybe has do with something else or project or something completely different had nothing to do with the intimacy. Yeah now i mean i. I've gotten better at not taking every single mood personally. Another co patriots But this one is just different with different gen- generally feel it. Think before you say it. Also the reason why. It's a little confusing to me. Is because i feel like in the last two months My sex drive has gone down significantly like i haven't ended. It's just it nothing to do with anything. I haven't really been wanting a she'll like you say that in the same way that you always say that you don't watch swedes. Or that your soul. Even though you always end up eating more you can't tell in his free of the two months. You can't tell the last three weeks that i haven't been on that sexual or it. Hasn't you know like that. I haven't been putting pressure. There was one time and this is like a first with us that i actually turned it down number. I had a headache or something or or something happened. Where i was down in the past but usually i just move forward. I made. Because i know like i said similar to. I'm not hungry. Or i'm really full on stuff that you actually it's that could also be called sexual assaults. I know you aside. Not but here's the problem with that. I don't want you to move forward for me so you make everything okay. Do you know what i'm saying. I do not even know. There's a gift in that even though that selfless do. Not you're saying. And i'm very aware of the unhealthy Dysfunction in that and the pattern has been that you are more sexual than i am. So if i said.

Adjustment from from the both of them as well and particularly from finn talking about how important is to enjoy the sport not turn into a job too soon because you know he could have fifteen years of this ahead of him comfortably. Couldn't he not so. That's a long long time to be focused on a sport that on so much if you totally and that's exactly right. That's exactly what. I was trying to tap into their listeners. Out there who Understand the world of rising but don't understand what has to go into staying professional evening trying to become professional all the stuff outside of the the rice die but also to the youngest barring professional out there people who growing up thinking. Y'all wanna make that trip across the european sort of putting it up on a pedestal. That looks fantastic. There's some realities to it and navy's she's very special from what i understand talking to ashley and also has self. She's very stubborn. Very self driven. But that's what it has taken for her to make these steps over here to play our way through and start her own path herself. And it's it's quite inspiring talking to these this young generation and it's very. It's very good for me. Because i've sort of lost touch with that young generation and it's again for me understanding i s right that's what it does take when signing up to to make these sacrifices work all this stuff out yourself and you forget. I'm sitting there talking to them. I really keep forget how young they were and how big step steadily was. I was really quite blown away listening to the story to and just fact you know. She moved to south to london wished she had a family member so she could base a selfie near. But you know again quite quite unconventional place to to start a career in professional cycling living in central london not the ideal place for you know long training rights. You've got the parks obviously or get yourself out of the city. I guess too But just having that resourcefulness and commitment to make it work. Somehow you know talent physical talent one thing but you know. Mental resilience is a is a talent as well. Isn't it it is it very much is in. You always day last week at the Ben benelux to and Fien was there in the rice. I didn't hit us just blending to another one of the rod is but there's a whole bunch of rising coming up.

It's a relatively short hop across a channel for may richard more. My colleague lives not far from competing with the race starts So yeah we're hoping to make the. I'm hoping to make the trip for both. The women's and the men's races is about topers. And i've wolski mentioned the the benelux tour mitch. It came to a premature end for you. Crashed out How are you watch happened on an. How's your recovery. yes it was. It was a very strange crash. Show is very hoffa. Maintain wall since i've been rising and to sit back into that. Rice is difficult at times. When you've had sort of two or three months off rising. But i. I really found my fate. I felt like hose moving. Well they but. I just got caught up in a big bunch crash sort of a heap crash and jump back on the block and when stripe back to the front. That was my job that died rod. Particular gysi just. Jeez my russa's very very so he. But i'm going to finish the check that out off the rice and once we go to gain on that i found out that my elbow actually was fractured I probably coulda soldiers on.

Everything's You still doing it for the same reasons because he loved the sport and everything but i think this kind of this freedom when you junior and use and it's like he should really kind of treasure that while you have it just to be able to like Yeah go out and do these rebel racing leagues. We'll do mates and just kinda like ate ice cream when you get home and that kind of thing not kind of treat it like ed job when you're sixteen and i'm glad i didn't and i'm glad we kind of got out.

Maybe even your brothers like well. That's a big step. Cfc ain't gonna go for a good luck you know like it's a big step. You gotta go across fonda and like you said he's frauds fun had had a train suddenly not just back in your own country the roggin our way training back in time comfortable trying to be professional. That would be a hardship. Anyway you yourself to a complete different pice over unoiled. Everything's new any to a massive step and you come home from that tripping. I did it so you went back. Nick shia and what name that time. Yes i mean. I obviously i started the year off like the best way i could imagine i won nationals and then i went over with the national jersey to my new team and didn't start one race because copen half so Actually i did go home. I managed to make make it back home to new zealand Over the worst west lucked out of lockdown and cobra. Did you want to go home. Noted that was yeah. I mean exactly what i'm saying. You have given to you everything that you've wanted and then suddenly it's just taken away from you before you've even started and that was like i think travel time oven and i yeah almost turned around like in singapore or something saying i wanted to just go back and yeah i think fen phen sorta talk me through it and maybe get on that plane. I think it was the best decision in in khazei would have been locked in an apartment. Here looked pretty grim. Was now you tell me about you. A little trip across because you come across a year later but with the development squad in yuma Tell me about that because you know was was that true george or how did that sort of whole eventuality. And what was your thought process about. Kind of making the big step across a better catch unless you see here. I mean to be on us. Yeah i was pretty fortunate to have that opportunity. Come up without even having to kind of go into europe with nothing. Like i think navy came over here and there was like a whole big gist unexpected. And i think pretty lucky to have the secure contract like straight. I didn't even live new zealand. And they were saying they wanted me to come over and rice for them. Which was really nice and i think yeah for sure i got a lot. Thank george for for that. I think He definitely put in some good words which is a really but Yeah was it was really good. Came over my first yeah Kind of the same. Like hair was really excited to race and then suddenly like code but i mean vice then In south of new orleans. In the sittard okay. So that's also another element to you know. It's a little bit similar. He to navies that you're outside. I'm going to say spinal jeronimas really comfortable. But there are people that you can access. Georgia's he or other cables or even all these old people you know. They're accessible be holland. Another from a as. I did the same thing and you just feel again a line. There's nothing wrong with holland but it's different so that i can imagine a show. It was pretty grim and it was like to the point where i was kind of happy to go home. And like this this I shock of covered. And i think Yeah that was kind of the big difference may navy. She really wanted to stay and i. I didn't mind going home because it was like our stuck in this shoebox in In the netherlands which is in the winter which was It was a shock to the system coming out of the in new zealand but Yeah was I mean. I had a good team around me. Ns that's what i was kinda grateful for but Yeah it was. It was Big lifestyle changes for sure. Did you to on this show and the ordinary how she really is but like. Was it tom's way you were able to give each other at voss maybe not directly like oh i think you should do this but just sort of hewing a similar themes the struggles maybe main speaking to name the before and hearing something similar to that what you feeling there any tons of you guys could sort of light to the same situation in start period. You know being apart from harm my wife museum. Yeah for sure. I think we're sort of funny relationship but we're not we're not we're really close but we're not very fiction of each other and we we don't yeah. I mean we're not that we always have to give to each other. And i mean that's the same thing i mean. Finn was stuck in his his little apartment and and water xlii and he was pretty lonely. And also i've had times where i've been really lonely stuck in little apartment so i think yeah we both head words to give to each other and those times and we also say in the hard way too often to each other. So that's too much telling me okay. Naturally making the big leagues talking about Few navy sea works and that came sort of a roundabout. Why because big law ended up folding media. And telling you that. Won't i thought i made it and some of these teams stopping. But then you've sort of landed on your fate in arguably the best team in the women's peleton that little transition off his sort of came back and then what happened. Yeah i mean so yeah We had the strange season them. Covert kobe season. The end of last year whatever. It was october september and Yeah i mean racing with big was a Was what i dreamed of. It was it was. I was doing well till races. And and i sort of really found myself stepping up in huge leaps and bounds. She lost..

These guys were coming for big names. Not only that created these. From what i can understand until we george these great atmosphere of good rising competition. I guess she probably didn't wanna really aware of that. At the time. You sort of thought this is what it is but now looking back you pro. John understanding how that was really awesome that that same. Yeah for sure. Yeah definitely. I mean even going back now just sort of nothing like was we just had sort of something clicked in those years. I mean we're pretty lucky. Growing up that we had the some like really super group of like old group that were really like obviously and the professional ranks and then we had this the smaller really junior group. And we really tighten it as i say probably to is a really small community nelson Yeah really i mean. Every community is pretty small new small country. So yeah we tighten and we had that sort of competition between us all and then we had to look up to these guys that were in front of us in the club. Racing eighth grade and we'll racing. Co degrading eventually. We kind of made our way out the grades. And i think finn got a grade with those big boys and i'll still be grade better. Yeah maybe. I'll go to and grade when i go making agra those like you think you made it when you're when you're fourteen years that's the world toy you tell me about the rebel racing league. This is something georgia's also telling me about. This is like a broad. Tell me about it because he sort of explained to be sort of just said get get the gaza tell you about the rebel rising legs so tell me about the. Yeah it was. I mean i think the few guys that he had kind of started it. And then i think we kinda like reinitiated it. A couple of years ago we Basically we had like a few nights like Over the summer will bet column. And it's kinda like this unofficial like racing like we're just omeday up at one place at like six in or whatever just in the evenings and Just say all right. We raised the head of the sign. This little box and like everyone when we were doing it would Enroll come with two dollars. Donation like oh like entry and it was like when it takes all the money. I don't know how do we do. I think you just give it at the end and then yeah but it was It was a good bit of fun. Like word A lot of us would come and like just random jersey psych. I remember wearing one of like nieves team jerseys to once and it was extremely small serving but Yeah there was some Pretty fun nuts there because they had a guy they would you turn off to the races and hang on on what was what was your involvement in this sort of seen as well or just the training was at i remember a few of them are and hit out and try. See how how long i can hang on. Basically with it. Was that kind of racing. It was basically people just popped off as they went into the last two generally finn george and yeah but then then i'd be involved in the hala often we did some unofficial prize-giving had ahead podium going. I could be the podium gill but It was always. Yeah good fun nights out and obviously we. It was always like about fifty minute hour ride out as well on the nude ride even further outta town so then you'd be racing. The light beck home in. Yeah so that will always good. Big nights out knows training if anything. Yeah really bring this up. Because i think it's very easy to now is. She missed too with a lot of young pros coming into the pills on him.

I love that because that's like bond tracing that's way like the greedy rising skills get taught nothing. That's that's a great thing to see neon progress and you're over here in in europe professionals and you've got that rising element to it as well. Assad from that. You'll massive talents.

We've had a little break while the spaniards on gripe foil to the she always sad not to pay but i very much enjoyed watching it during the final part of the season and i sat down with two young pros brother and sister combination feen and nieve fisher black they from new zealand and thomas a little bit more about them. I'm lanka's you're a little bit more aware about them than i was. I've gone done some research. These guys completely sleep on my right eye out but it was so great sitting down until hinton them.

How Are Words Added To The Dictionary?
"My name is emma and niamh eight years old. And i live in mount washington kentucky and my question is how do we get added to the dictionary. Great question emma. We took your question directly to one of the people who actually gets to do. The adding my name is emily brewster. And i am a lexicographer. Which means that. I am someone who writes and edits. Dictionaries lexicographer is a very big word it's also a great word can you break down. Where does that word come from. Shore the sokoto part means word. It's also related to the word lexicon which is a collection of words like dictionary and also like the words in a language. those are both called lexicon. 's and the graph for part of lexicographer is the same graph for you here in photographer and in videography for an cartographer that has to do with Writing originally But it is you know has to do with creating things making things. Does that mean you make new words. I'm not actually allowed to create the words. But i get to define the new words. Lexicographers never make words up. Oh so you help us understand. Exactly what a word means and what other words we would use to describe that word. Yes a lexicographers job is kind of like a scientist job very much actually. We are scientists of the language and we are always watching the words that people are using and figuring out exactly what the words mean in all the different situations that people use them and so we will write definitions for a new word when we see that word being used by a lot of people in a lot of different situations with a meaning that is clearly used throughout all these different
Are You Getting The Most Out Of Infosec Conferences
"Hi everyone and welcome to the cyber-security sonal. Thanks for joining us for another session. Where we sit out the hot topics insecurity welcome to all our listeners and be sure to follow us on twitter at hashtag. Cyber zone info conferences give cybersecurity professionals a chance to network here. The latest research exchange ideas and demo hacks and new tools but with so many conferences decide which wants to attend ho. Can you get the most out of your experience. Are they worth your time and money. What's it like to be a percenter or even an organizer today. We're speaking to f secure and founder of the t two infosec conference and nordheim mark head of coms for the nordic security event disobey and vice-chairwoman for health check association. Can you share with us. A little bit about your background and your involvement with infosec conferences in the background is on demos. San non freaking seen So naturally when. I when the first infosec conference he's came to be. I was really really curious. But the problem was that most of them were held in us So eagerly waiting for the european scene to wake up and when the first black hat came to europe. It was too damn most probably your two thousand or so. I booked my tickets there on being the fee niamh of first thing. I landed that the hotel. I went to the hotel bar and saw some guys there by t shirts on and when to the table and ask them so is it. Okay if i join you guys. And they're really. Yeah yeah yeah sure. Sure on four o'clock in the morning There was a guy called thor Of hammer of god. He asked me that. You're going to be talking about tomorrow and tandy and they were like okay cool and then because i was caught a part of the crew by now They invited me to all these cool. Invite only conferences like ph neutral. That was taking place in berlin and so on. And that's basically how i got involved. I'm like a person who pick and choose this. I'm not the one goes to the physical conferences. 'cause i what i would like to just know the topic and like ask around for my peers is something that you would recommend to listen or watch or whatever Because i'm not the kind of person who wants to attend to these these misleading conferences and all is these sales pitches. That's not ideal from. Am so yeah. I'm kind of picky. So therefore i i'm more and more no turning into surfing around the web and trying to ask from pierce what they would recommend me to attend like virtually roy do you do you go to physical events like at all. Yes i did. You know pre crow. Not yeah the disobey being kind of like the main event for me. It's near live in helsinki. That's kind of one that i've been like recently participated in so speaking of the recommendations like sometimes these events on conference get like glowing reviews Sometimes you just hear that they are like you said a waste of time. So what in. Your opinion makes good conference. I think the people who know their area of expertise. They're passionate about showcasing their findings so whatever and really like giving the practical examples of how they do it. That's interesting and inspiring obviously have pretty strong opinions about this one. The reason why. I founded t to was that i sold the difference between commercial offerings. An invite only events in a if you would go to places like si- mantech conference or something like that you see. These horrible sales pitches that would actually provide us zero value. And you would really learn anything besides maybe using a tool or two and then on the invite only events. You could see that. Yeah i i was playing this game called second life and then i used that port scan the internet and so on so that the discrepancy or the difference between these two it was. It was just huge. And i won't eat to have something like that. So i had some pretty strong ideals or opinions How a good security conference would look like first of all i think. Independence is a key thing here. So no sponsor can impact or affect the agenda no product picci's on each jenner represent theories on their estate on the stage because of their skills and and This is not true for majority of the conference is for of majority of the conferences. You buy this platinum sponsorship baggage or something You get a keynote. And is it's basically we have reach reached some ridiculous Papering points for this one because you go to. Rsa kino's is worth something like five hundred thousand eurostar. Something ridiculous so. I don't think that really serves the audience too. Well transparency i. that's the key ingredient. That's well so be honest how y'all don't sell your delegate packages to outsiders and so on that this is a common thing that i learned early two thousand and three or so that it's common practice that if you attend any type of event those delegates lists got sold

"I'm not totally sure. Okay i gotta ask you something that. I think it's can be difficult for young actors. Start very young to transition to adult roles. Have been for you. It's hard to say living through it because you know i feel like it's been weird. 'cause i've been working for i don't even know how many years almost twenty years and it's it's hard because it's not like you know in a traditional if you're say you work in In business you've been running a business for twenty years like you have a very specific amount of experience whereas like growing up in film having to reinvent yourself every anyone your kids every like two years and then when you're a teenager it's every four and then as an adult it's like every five or six so having to reinvent yourself in terms of the kinds of characters that you're going out to audition for it really breaks up your career and it's hard to say that you have like that full amount of expertise you know. Every couple of years it feels like a completely different industry so in terms of transitioning into adulthood starting off. When i was so young. It's been yeah it's hard. It's really hard you know looking back at my career and saying oh wow like i've done this and this and and then looking forward and be like oh none of that really matters anymore because i'm in a completely new age group in no people. Don't look at that. Look at look at you as the same actor. They don't look at you as as the same person that played those roles. Because i mean well not really a grown adult. Now it's been yet. it's heart lake. There's a lot more In in my age group now than there was when i was six. And which means there's a lot more competition and It's tricky that combined with you know figuring out your identity as As a a fully grown person and all of those things that tie tie into growing up just having to reinvent your career as well. Yeah that's like.

I'm the director of blood ties and something beneath than many episodes of drama and you're listening to sci-fi talk all right back with nev wilson and we're talking random acts of violence which is her new film and also just about things in general. Now people know you literally watching you. As i mentioned before it growing up getting older in the saw films. What was that experience like. Especially as a young actor keep on horror films are really protective of like when you have a kid working on a horror film. People are very protective of that child is fairly protective about child In terms of what parts of the film are disclosed to them. Working on the saw movies was interesting. Because i remember you know. Obviously too young to watch them was on them. Yeah i worked on them between each is like ten and twelve or something like that. Where like nine. Eleven was over the course of a couple of years. And i knew how big of a deal they were like. I knew that they were Sort of a Had following. I knew that they were like famous films. Because i didn't appear in one until the third i believe. Yeah the third. The third film was the first one. I work on and I believe the fifth or the sixth was the last one material and working on them was really interesting knowing kind of what they were about but never having seen one and and knowing that they were really scary movies and I being that young like no one ever said that. I needed to read the script so i don't think i ever did because i was so young and to content was so just not appropriate for a child. Wage interesting working on them like sort of knowing what was going on but not really reading not reading the script so not really knowing what was going on Just kind of you know getting the director and and my mom who would read the script Getting ideas of of what mindset. I needed to be in what was kind of going on in the scene and that was pretty applicable to to most of the horror films that worked on growing up. You know sort of knowing what was going on but.

"So he's been on a few more than a few sets he's also worked with some other directors. I would think that makes it easier when you're going to direct you the best ways to do something and maybe the worst place to do something to. You're very right. It's i've worked with directors that has ever directed before i've worked with directors who have direct a lot before but have only ever directed never done anything else onset and because jay has been working for as an actor for so long And also has been writing. And i mean he produced this film as well having having more than one hat on in on a set like really informs he because there's so many moving parts like to know different jobs individually really helps you direct asset. Because you know you know what page more than one person is on so it allows you to inform like the the mechanics of of all those moving parts. Yeah i think he's working with him as a meeting an actor he really like brought a lot of great things to to directing us like. I really enjoyed working with him. He gave everyone a lot of all the actors a lot of freedom and really trusted like their ability to do what they did. It's great or rarely. Hear their lovely absolutely lovely working with them.

Wow that's even more ms into i can't even imagine like the level of stress you experiencing being an actor producer director and writer on the stone like i can't even imagine the level of stress and anxiety but he really liked he.

This is kind of what i'm thinking in terms of aurora's character You know what i got in your audition really felt like you have a handle on her But she he gave me little down on like you know the vibe of the movie. What what the tone was going to be an overview of all the characters so we got a lot of like a lot of background information before we actually started working on it and The day before we started filming Jay hosted The lovely brunch at his home and we all got to meet before you know we were on set for the first time together so it's not like we had to just walk in and and like we knew each other. It was like you met. And we got to like a full day of talking about the script and going over what the characters were and we were all like. Go go through the whole script. Jay made it very clear that it was an open discussion room like there was. You could share all of your opinions. There was an. He didn't make it feel like you know. This is what i've written want it to be. It was like this is how i feel like. I want to look in this. A how i. I want it to feel and However you guys in Interpret that is is sort of you're doing and you're on your business that's your business so that's true so it sounds like he got off to a good start as a director but how.

J. devante joins us this morning J. J. good morning Hey what is going on are we supposed to be talking about your twenty twenty at the summer I should be in studio what you're wearing a flowery sharks and instead it's what seven o'clock in the morning on drinking a Cup of tea talking about the premier league back in June none of this makes sense I know it's so aggravating that we we are not on the normal soccer schedule or the normal sports schedule but such is life and today the the premier league's return follows the Buddhist leaders returning that was one of the first leagues to come back what is been your early impressions of the way that Buddhist league has returned and one of their biggest evasions which was the fox broadcast pumping in the crowd noise even though there's no fans in attendance I haven't wanted to get back at D. is beyond believable it it's being largely enjoyable except the inevitable happened on Bayern Munich have won it and I think a lot of that this team has gone out of it a little bit as for the the crowd noises and and that of being pumped in I mean we've got a mixed reaction from people on there are the purest they hate this but to be honest with you typically the Germans have done it in a way where even I you would just before the game to be played let's not pretend they're found in the stadium it is what it is I even being won over by it in the in the Bayern Munich Borussia Dortmund game they got things down to such a fine level of ice boys broadcasting back when there was a tackle and I free kick was given against Borussia Dortmund's working Dorman were supposed to be playing at home but there was no home fans they had the perfect noise for the fans jeering the referee so whoever is operating the system in the Bundesliga again as set such a high standard for anybody else to follow on to try and get right they were pitch perfect when the ball hit the back of the net the crowd noise sounded as close to what it would sound like in a real game which stands full of supporters saw that I mean the Bundesliga's got it right in terms of of having you know just soccer back to give the watch a diplomacy has been great D. A. it's been really good to watch now look one thing I I'm about to start reading an article that just just being dropped this morning by a journalist in England who said on average there's been more individual errors and mistakes since the bonus **** restarted in the stadiums without fans so that's really interesting to me if there isn't fans in the stadium because of course the players on the field they can't hear those fake crowd noises if there if there isn't style at fans in the stands does not affect the concentration levels and that the article basically says Dr probably be a lot of mistakes on the restart in the premier league which I mean mistakes are full and that's the honest and that's a fascinating psychological question if we're watching on TV it feels normal to us because as you said they're doing such a good job with riding the levels of the crowd noise it also they've had signage around the lower bowl of the stadium so we don't see a lot of the empty seats but that if the players themselves are creating or for making more mistakes because they're not as focused have you noticed that it's been sloppy play watching the Buddhist legal or even to your train die it hasn't really been all that evidence I honestly don't think I have noticed it per se what I have noticed this kind of a drop off in intensity a little bit I so you know that I suppose that's natural after a three month layoff when players come back that it's not quite as intense but I'm wondering if you play a pressing style of soccer if you're looking to press the full back the defender when he's in in possession of the ball just the crowd kind of carry you along on that because they'll be involved in that process you know they'll be screaming that bit harder they'll be shouting Baptist longer during the price when you went back then there's a big surge of excitement does this all key players heightened and when that isn't there does it slightly become a training exercise in the that there's another point is that it's such a leveling what we believe crowded you know crowd noises on taxes on Kroger such a leveling concept in soccer for example one paramedic one to play Niamh Berlin I think it was nil nil and only on had a chance to get a penalty that wasn't given and with no crowd noise if you imagine the jeering the hostility you know the referee would probably be you know under pressure although they had a video assistant replay maybe he's under a little bit more pressure but you know fourteen like union Berlin who are not a big side burn unit coming into town one of the things that they can do is have a really hostile crowd in a small stadium right on top of the field and they didn't have that and at four thirty if for example are shaving off ten percent of their there I suppose in their modeling for away games in the premier league ten percent because there will be no fans so obviously it's significant J. J. devante joins us our soccer insider for the caught offside podcasts such a great soccer podcast for soccer
Where are all the Asian Beardsmen?
"In November of twenty seventeen filmmaker Justin. Chang decided agrout his facial hair for the first time I had never tried to grow out my facial hair before because I was just scared to do so like I wasn't sure how it's GonNa turn out you know. My Dad actually has a pretty boss mustache. And he's known as the Asian Guy with the mustache but I didn't know if I had heard of those genes just in his Chinese American and he says people always treated his dad's moustache like an exception to the norm. A lot of Asian. People were impressed that he could grow it out. On a lot of non Asian people read more impressed and sort of I think I signed him like these masculine values. That a lot of Asian American men MM stereotypically are not granted I think part of that too is because he grew up in Tennessee and Texas and in the sal you know facial hair was even more of a signal. Oh masculinity down there and it helped him get by email. Think that something like phase. Here's that big of a deal but like everything communicates. Justin didn't go up in the south like his dad ad. But he's from San Bernardino California where they're also wasn't a very big Asian community just an always has some scruff but he had never let his facial hair grow now in his late twenties he was about to travel across the country to film a documentary. I found my own production company called J school and we focus on telling stories of underrepresented represented people in other words people caller women and the Lgbtq community and movember provided him with an excuse movember also known as no shave. November is an annual event where men are encouraged to grow mustaches for the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues. The Movember Foundation a global men's health a charity which began in two thousand three has always focused on educating man about prostate cancer. Anticipation cancer but in twenty seventeen they expanded their mission to include spreading awareness about mental health issues and suicide prevention in issue that was really meaningful to Justin quick onto warning. There's a short mention of suicide coming. Yeah I had a friend when I was younger. Who took her life and it really is what I attributed sparking my career path onto a creative journey and it was my only outlet when I I was younger to write in sort of tell stories as a coping mechanism from when my friend died so when I saw that Movember had expanded its causes to also covering suicide aside if I like the perfect kind of aligning of the stars that I want to try going on? Facial hair was 'cause I believed in and since he was on the road working on his film there there was no one around the laugh at me if it look bad so he started growing at his facial. Hair Okay Caroline. I think this is a good time to admit that we don't have much personal experience. Dance with facial hair right ADA and we're also not Asian American men but we've decided to explore this topic Asian American men and facial hair. Because we've heard it's a thing he's like kind of a thing right now. It's definitely think there was even this article called. Why Asians Dread Movember about difficulties? Some Asian men have growing facial higher. I laughed because I get it. I understand because I know that. Some dudes can't you know what I mean just like hey some dudes like me aren't six feet tall. You know what I mean. It's like you're dealt a hand play it. I do think that there is something very specific about men feeling like they can do anything that that they see other men being able to do. I know some Very Very Astute East Asia gentlemen and if I'm really breaking down what I feel too was them. It's probably jealousy and breaking you know whether jealousy comes from this idea that they can fit into Western perceptions of masculinity better than I can also. It's important to question when you hear the phrase. He's Asian men and facial hair. Do you think of East Asian men Southeast Asian men South Asian men. These communities can have very different issues regarding facial the hair I grew up in a six. I don't have a choice. Beer's become such a hip thing so for me. It's very interesting to observe because I keep a beard for very different reasons. Both to my parents were really worried about me going airports because I mean I'm a brown dude with a beard people get uncomfortable. I can see it in old y people's faces when I am boarding a plane so this is our investigation. What's the vocabulary we don't know what does that have? A Moustache flavor saver. Chinstrap is just like when it goes your sideburns. Connect your cheekbones connect your Chin and how do other people feel about their facial hair. This is something that loves those bugging let me about to because she was so good looking back in the day but first. Let's go back to Justin so he's on the road traveling across the country doing interviews for a documentary series called ritual which is about NFL players and their pre-game superstition and he's also a few weeks into his facial. Missile Hair journey by week three like I had a pretty good moustache. I was pretty sure wasn't able to grow a full beard. I was manicuring it the best I could. He's googling photos those of Johnny Depp. Michael B Jordan and Robert Downey junior to get inspiration on how to style his facial hair into a goatee one day. He was in Denver Filming. Maria's Thomas a a superstar wide receiver for the Denver Broncos who also happen to be doing movember for the first time and he actually flies out a barber from la every every couple of weeks to do his hair and he was doing well for the first time too and his barber was giving him shit basically for being like him. Ed Others Asian duties grown up way better than you can. You can't beat the Asian Guy. So how did that make Justin fail. I dig any offense to it even though like it clearly had racial overtones overtones because I get what he was saying like. They didn't expect me to have such a full mustache. Goatee and this Guy Thomas. WHO's like obviously way tougher for the Niamh as an NFL player? He could barely grow the peach fuzz. It was just kind of a very self aware moment where you're like. Damn I can't handle a tackle or run. The forty yard dash or catch a touchdown in the end zone or win the super bowl ring like he can but for damn sure I cannot gross facial hair this might sound like a nice happy ending of Justin's the number story but it's just the beginning he soon finds out that not everyone has positive reactions to his facial hair one of my friends who will remain nameless she goes. How's your new former birth control but we'll come back to them later so we've learned not the ability or inability to go facial hair can be a source of insecurity or pride for certain men men but for most it's still purely aesthetic choice just like I put my hair in a ponytail or choose whether to wear makeup a certain way for a lot of men facial hairs away the former identity through their appearance? But what if your facial hair could actually affect your job prospects. We're going to take you to Hollywood where your appearance. Especially as an Asian man competing for a limited amount of rules can either get you a coveted role or lead to rejection desmond.

Yeah I I still have really good friends from high school so I thought it was Super Fun but I totally get it. If you don't don't WanNa go but it sounded like he wanted to go.
