Where to Find a Truly Authentic Disney Beach Vacation
"We're going to be talking all about disney's beach resorts and we're talking about disney's i guess. Would we call them their real beach resorts all around the world. Not their photo. Beach resorts at their feet resort feats resorts like that fo- beach and we're talking about places like what disney's beach club resort would be there features are and just a little bit of background. I remember when we talked about the wave pool that was in the lagoon and outside of the polynesian and dick nunez the emad surfer who turned imagine near and when they first opened disneyworld he thought disneyworld had to compete with beach resorts in florida. And that no one would wanna go there because there wasn't a beach so they created beaches and they tried to do surfing. Didn't really work but then later. They added the pool at typhoon lagoon yet and of course they added the beach club resort and tom along they deign has a real sand bottom. But it still wasn't real and when we say beach resorts i guess. Let's put it this way in front beach resorts well all right. Well we'll get into that. So there are you may or may not know three count them three actual disney beach resorts not associated with any theme parks. And we've talked about one on this podcast in the past if you're planning summer vacation hopefully we're all going traveling this summer and you want to go to a beach resort and you love disney. We're gonna give you three amazing options for disney beach resorts and i'm putting them in my personal preference order. You're probably going to agree with my order. I would imagine start with number one. Most important will go first. Okay and that for me is alani lenny desire lani resort and spa in co alina. A wa who hawaii i do you say that. So he no or lena that. So co lena is the little town. This is a true beachfront resort in hawaii. In this episode we're going to focus on the beaches because we're talking about beach vacations. We will do more in depth on the resorts. We've already done one about our number two which will get to momentarily. But if you there's nothing really. That beats a hawaiian beach. What do you think jonah blank blank. So the beach call. Lena is you fly. Into on her lulu. And it's a really short drive right. We definitely rent a car. And i'll get into why that resort alani is right on the ocean in this really upscale town called co alina and it's a little bit of an interesting beach there because it it's very sheltered. They have storm break. So it's not very good for surfing but if you're one of those people that likes to think the ocean is a pool that has no currents at all. This might be for you. Yeah it's of funny. Because i learned somewhere along the way in my travel life that most of resort hotels on islands even barbados in that they build the hotels on the quiet side of the island. But we love waves right. We like big waves. So we'd always have to do. When i was surfing and barbados. You gotta go down to the super bowl's on the other side of the island but all the big resorts are on the calm side. If there is one and co lena's the whole point is sort of like that but actually there's four lagoons dan this strip of land in their man made so they did like you said they built breakwaters and they're sort of like a c shape. It's almost like a donut with a little cutout which is open to the ocean right. So there's water comes in. They are open to the ocean but yes. They're very calm. They're pretty large. I don't know. I don't even know how big they are. But they're big. It's not like people. Yeah and you can rent boats and sailboats. And a few things in there it can take a lot of people and then there's other upscale resorts at the neighbors of alani and there's four of these lagoons and you can walk along the waterfront the rest of the waterfront there sorta rocky so that's probably why was undeveloped in the past and then disney came along and somebody figured out. Hey we can make nice beaches here if we put these little lagoons. So it is a true. Hawaiian beachfront resort. You can swim in the beautiful pacific ocean. It faces the sunset which is really nice. But if you're going to hawaii and if you're going to alani in particular there are many other as ing beaches on oahu. Don't always need to go in a volcano. Guess you don't need to go. What is oh. Amelia wrote a song as a kid going to hawaii in volcano which would be the big island of hawaii not on oahu. But if you're going to oahu and you're going to alani it's a beautiful beach Franck resort will get into all the rest of it and another episode because es cell using storm along. Bay is a good waterpark. Alani puts it to shame. But we're going to save that for a future episode. Pure here for storm. Along is now an official disney waterpark. A resort it sort of water park for among resorts compared to any other pool. That is you know typically pool with a slide. It's pretty much a waterpark. There's a lazy river there. there's a beat anyway. we're not talking about disney's beach club resort. We're talking about disney's true beach resorts on the ocean. But if you go to alanine. You're in hawaii definitely rent a car because there are some amazing beaches around the island and we have three favorites. Yes when we were there and the one one is why of course the north shore's famous the banzai pipeline. Wia me a base of drive to that beach. Any of these things are an hour to ride real easy day trips to go to the beaches and then i call the surfing beach surfing. Beach is kylie loa beach. If that's how you pronounce it pronouncing these the lower something. It's just back on the way back towards honolulu about halfway. There may be and yet. It's it's a real true. Hawaiian bichon little campground part. If you wanna take surfing lessons there it's great. There's great lessons there. The waves are consistent. It's a true open. Beat quite amazing. Little kids surfing. Yeah amazing little kids. Maybe we'll post a picture of usurping on that beach as part of this social media for this episode so that that one's really close great spot to go surfing and then across on the other side of the island is kahlua which is a really cool little town right on the water and they have a really neat beach there too so chi loo beach the north shore and kellyanne lower beach. I think that's how you say it. I may be saying wrong but you'll find it. Those are three awesome beaches. Plus you do have a beach rate at your resort. A nice quiet beach like amelia said. The water's warm there. It's very calm tons of beach chairs. it's it's fairly large semi circle shape. Check it out on a google earth map and you'll see so that is out of ninety eleni hawaii and then another one we talked about. They will be disney's vero beach resort. And i don't know this might actually be my favorite beach if we're talking strictly about the beach hotel. I'd have to say personally. I prefer the air disney's vero beach resort beach than the alani beach lie because it is truly wide open to the ocean. You can't even serve there either. You can on windy days. We have seen people surfing there. You can definitely bougie board there quite a bit. But i'm going to get in just like we did with lonnie there's other beaches nearby but at vero beach resort the beach is you know you're just on the coast there on vero beach so it extends hundreds of miles but there's rarely it's rarely what i would call crowded. No sometimes in the mornings we go on beach walks and watch the sunrise and get bitten by no see'ums. We talked about that in our verbiage. Episode. this is what. I was alluding to earlier if you want to know. More about. The resort in the area listened to that episode a few back but the beach itself. We didn't really focus on and there is a beach house. there where you can rent watercraft sailboats. But you can bring your own boogie boards and you surf and you're within range of bringing a surfboard. It's your subject to the winds really. It's wind driven surf there. It's not nash. Natural surf break but the beach itself has filled with tons of shells and highlight to look for shark teeth. It's weather dependent so days. It's actually quite calm other days. It's very rough. So i liked that personally. I like those open
Vaccine Distribution: An Equity Challenge
"Okay paying we are talking vaccine equity in the pandemic and just a quick note. We are focusing a just here in the united states for this episode. So let's start with some top line numbers three covid. Nineteen vaccines have been authorized for emergency. Use in the us one very recently. How many people have actually been vaccinated so far well. Since vaccine distribution started in mid december around fifty million people have gotten at least one dose of a covid nineteen vaccine that includes about twenty five million people who got into doses means they've been fully vaccinated with either the pfizer or madonna vaccines. And that's some real progress over the past few months. Still just around eight percent of the total. Us population has been fully vaccinated. So there's still a long way to go. yeah i mean. Do we have any demographics on who the people who got the vaccine are like. Do we have any data on race or ethnicity well. Last week i spent some time at a cdc conference which was online and a bunch of public officials talked about it including dr marcela nunez smith who we heard from earlier. People of color are getting vaccinated rates below their representation in the general population. We know these challenges reflect longstanding deeply rooted systemic rallies. But here's the thing. The data that she's talking about is still pretty limited. You know so far race. Nothing to see. Data have only been collected for about half of the shots given out. Wow only half the thought i mean. There's a little bit frustrating. That's that's not enough data. Yeah it's it's really not and the biden administration pointed this out themselves and they acknowledged that it's pretty abysmal. Doctor rachelle will lansky. She's head of the centers for disease control and prevention and she says the problem is coming from a couple of different directions. Individuals may choose not to report. It may not be required of or requested by providers and some providers as well as jurisdictions have restrictions on data sharing so some of these data gaps are due to the fact that we have inconsistent systems around data gathering. Which you know is something that has been in quite a bit with this pandemic. Yeah that's certainly part of it and there's reasons why people might not want to share their personal information about race ethnicity especially people of color you know. The federal government has a long history of exploiting and under serving minority communities and that extends to this day but now there are government officials saying that. It's up to them to try and convince people that it's important to give their information. Here's neurath shaw. Health official in the state of maine in public health. What gets measured gets managed and if we measure the right things then we will manage the right issues if we measure the wrong things. Then the did that we collect. That may not bear resemblance to current present. Elf challenges is actually what we will end up managing. Yeah so early. On in fact vaccine distribution the only metric that was available was the number of doses sent out in the number of doses administered which basically measured speed and so if the biden harris administration wants to achieve both and equity with axiom distribution. They're going to have to get more comprehensive data on race ethnicity to get a handle on the problem. Yeah i mean. I want to talk about what the biden administration is doing specifically to address this issue of a vaccine but first let's talk about some of the ways. The general rollout has put. Vulnerable communities added disadvantage. Because that's definitely happening. Yeah and to be honest. It's been hard for everyone including health reporters to keep up with the changes that are happening. Daily and weekly with axiom distribution. I mean every single state has its own rules about who qualifies and had a sign up. Obviously that confusion is compounded. If the information isn't coming to you in the language you speak or you don't have access to computers and email and even for people who may have read up on how to book an appointment. It's taken them hours to actually research in book one. So if you don't have time to figure that out and if you don't have access to transportation or time off work to get an appointment and was places you probably haven't been able to get vaccinated yet. Yeah i mean and that's when you know for sure that you want the vaccine. Exactly dr christian rumors. He's a physician and executive that family health centers of san diego. He points out that people also have questions that are very specific to their own circumstances and we want those answered before they feel like they can make an informed decision to actually get vaccinated. Here he is speaking to. My colleague yuki noguchi residency is not just one thing. And in many cases. They're very unique to their own situation. Like i just got treated for cancer. Or i'm on a certain medication or i've had an allergy in the past and those are questions that'll be answered most likely from talking one on one with a medical professional or some other trusted person. Which again if you're part of an underserved community is hard to access. If you don't have the time to seek out those answers it'll be much easier if the vaccines and the resources were coming directly to you right right okay. So ping what has the biden administration specifically announced or done to address vaccine equity so at that. Cdc conference. dr marcellina smith acknowledged that this is a huge issue. And it's not gonna be easily solved. Must attend the underlying social structures arborist as we look ahead to building resilience into our recovery. What we do believe now. Is that the way we get american vaccinating and the emphasis he placed reaching the hardest hit communities attached just as important as being the goals the number of people that's needed so their strategy to get to those goals basically amounts to increasing a couple of different things number one the number of vaccines available number two the number of people giving vaccines and number three. The number of places people can get vaccinated and specific to equity. They've launched a few fema supported mass vaccination sites. These are huge operations set up in stadiums and parking lots that are aiming to give at six thousand shots a day and they're putting some of these in places that score high on something called the social vulnerability right which is a cdc measurement of how vulnerable community is based on social factors like poverty for example. They've also started sending vaccines directly community health centers which serve around thirty million people over. All many whom are rural belong to minority groups or are low income and the centers can also offer outreach in different languages and support for signing up. I mean are they also leaning on non-medical sites to i mean like i know working with community leaders and partners be especially effective. Yeah well they're also talking about sending out that nation trucks to job sites and setting up clinics and local churches and high school gyms and ymca's those non-medical sites that you were talking about and these community clinics might not be serving thousands of people a day but they will make the vaccine available and convenient for people in those communities to get gosh so the vibe administration is really trying to take a both and approach. They're supporting mass vaccination sites to get a lot of people vaccinated quickly and they're also realizing that some people will take more time and more effort to reach so they're also trying to figure out ways to gather better data and target underserved areas. Okay so you know. Most of what we've been talking about today paying as the government is handling this which i would argue is the most important facet but i mean. Is there a sense of individual responsibility here. I know there are a bunch of stories out there about people line jumping or like going into communities outside their own to vaccines how we have all heard the stories and it's hard to say how much it's happening but it does make people feel like the system isn't working you know and what bioethicists have said to me is. That cheating happens for sure but it's probably not happening enough to undermine the system overall i mean. Is that all kind of a short term problem. I mean there's a huge demand right at this point and not enough supply but the hope is that you know in the coming weeks or months the situation will change as vaccine manufacturing and distribution ramp up even further right. Yeah and that's been the hope all along. I mean for weeks now. We've been hearing about a flood of vaccines that will be coming online in the near future. That will make it less. Cut throat to vaccine appointment and we're not there yet but there are some promising signs. The government has now ordered a total of six hundred million doses of pfizer in modern of vaccines to be delivered by the end of july. Which is enough to cover three hundred million people and that's more than all the adults in the us right right. Plus we've got the newly authorized. John jay vaccine which will eventually make a difference right and getting all these shots in urgent right now because we're kind of in a race between vaccinations and variants. Which means that. The more people protect right now. The fewer people will catch the virus and the fewer chances the virus will have to keep mutating in ways that might make it avai the vaccines and the treatments. We've developed so that's why it's still super super important to keep the other measures that prevent the virus from spreading double masking staying physically distant. You know we're all excited about vaccines but health. Experts are saying right now that in the middle of the vaccination campaign is not the time to let up our guard okay pingpong we appreciate you as always thank you for coming on the show things so much. Mattie appreciate you to

Biden Names His Picks For Key Players On His Pandemic Advisory Team
"Joe Biden takes office next month, one of his first priorities will be responding to the pandemic, and today he named his picks for key players who will advise him on how to contain it and how to get people vaccinated. His picks include some very familiar faces and some new faces to joining us now from Wilmington, Delaware. To talk about all of this is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Hey, Tam. Hey, Elsa. All right, so let's just start off with perhaps the most familiar face on this team, Dr Anthony Fauci. What, exactly Well, his will be one bite and becomes president. Dr. Fauci will continue to lead the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases where he's been involved in vaccine development. And he will also be an adviser to the president. The president elect now On covert 19. He said on CNN that he thought his role would be similar, though What he didn't say is that Biden is a lot more likely to listen to him on a regular basis than President Trump has been certainly of late. Fauci will bring continuity between the administration's and he knows all the new players, including Biden's pick for the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Rachelle Wolinsky, as well as his pick for surgeon general Vivek Murthy. Here's what he said on CNN today. I know both Rochelle Walensky and Vivek Murthy very well. I mean, I've been working with the back for years when he was the surgeon general during the Obama administration and Rochelle Wolinsky has been a colleague of mine. She's an infectious disease expert. From Harvard Medical School in Massachusetts General Hospital. Now the CDC director job doesn't require Senate confirmation, but surgeon General will and Murthy had a difficult time getting confirmed last time because of his work on gun safety issues, Right. Okay, there's another doctor on this list. Marcella newness, Smith. Of Yale School of Medicine. What is her role going to be? She's going to lead something that Biden is creating called the Cove it 19 Equity Task Force. As we all know. By now, the burden of covert 19 has been disproportionately felt by people of color, and Nunez Smith is the founding director. Of Yale's Equity Research and Innovation Center. She's been working on this issue extensively and building trust in communities that don't necessarily trust the medical community or vaccines. Let's Turn now to the pick for health and human services secretary. The person who will be getting that job is state Attorney general of California, Javi Airbus era. He's also former congressman. Why do you think the Sarah was selected for this particular job? You know, he's been actively involved in defending the Affordable Care act, leading a coalition of states fighting to save it all the way to the Supreme Court. He spoke about that effort last year on all things considered, Americans are fed up with uncertainty. When it comes to whether or not they can send their child to a doctor or the hospital. We deserve to have certainty. Health care is not some widget that you play with its life and death. But beyond that, while attorney general in California he went after a major hospital system in the state for anti competitive practices. He backed legislation aimed at preventing drug companies from keeping generic drugs off the market. And the thought is that he may be able to bring some of that experience and energy to bringing down health care costs. He would also be the first Latino to lead the department. He grew up in Sacramento with working class immigrant parents. He got into Stanford, according to his official bio after fishing and application out of the trash that his friend and thrown away his personal story is something that you can expect to see Biden and his team highlight, especially since Biden's been under pressure to make good on his promise to have a diverse cabinet, right. Lastly, there is a White House position. Jeff Science will be the coordinator of the pandemic response. He's also gonna be a counselor to the president. There has been some pushback right to this particular selection from progressives right? He was a top economic official in the Obama White House. He famously was brought in to help after that disastrous rollout of healthcare dot Gove and save the launch of the Affordable Care Act. There has been pushed back as you say, from progressives to his appointment. He comes from the business world since leaving government he's Leading investment firm, and he also served on the Facebook board of directors for a time. The reality, though, is that this doesn't require Senate confirmation. And even those who object to some of his connections concede he is good at managing systems and solving problems in a crisis that is NPR. White House correspondent Tamara Keith. Thank you, Tam. You're welcome, Elsa.

"And we got picked up and then and then Yeah we got picked like for four shows something weird and willing thought that me and then we got picked up for a full season and then we were off and running. I think so. Do you remember where you feel like. You earned your stripes like where you rift or you started to conceal with the group where you really started to feel at home. They weren't they weren't writing for us very much. We just had like looks and things one one like lines we did but we were hitting home runs. Everybody like brian. Baumgartner was funny. I know angela from the groundlings. I know how funny she is. I knew brian from this commercial that he did what he was he worked in a deli was like delhi guy was funny in the commercial. And i'm like this guy is funny. Yeah and he was funny emmett's before kevin found his voice. Yeah and everybody. Everybody like these are good. These are solid people so was jervis around those are it feels like i'm not saying it's the first season had a jehovah's episodes always seemed to be a little bit edgier and those first episodes definitely have a little bit more. I don't wanna call it sting. But there was a bite to them that i thought might have been like a heavier stephen and ricky influenced the beginning. But they weren't perhaps they were. They were around a little bit and they would come thinks. The merchant directed a show. We saw steve came over. We let steve ricky. Never rick was in an episode but he never directed what you said. Some great directors do any standout. I mean i would always recognize the names and there'd be some really fun. Josh and herald ramos. We had yeah. I was gonna say herald. Ramos was one of how cool is that j.j. Abrams more than once. That's the other one. Yeah jon favreau. Did you go around. And jj and coffee stirrers. Here's something before that. Yeah i mean these guys were great they would hire you know food trucks. It was just awesome. And they'd be back more than once they they. They fans of their show. Yeah we got to be harold ramos and john and yeah fantastic staff. what it. What is a fun memory that you have instead of just kind of me guessing if it's will feral if it's the directors if all of the assam welfare i knew from we know how funny he is. He's saying the kids watch. I mean how do cancel the phone where he wasn't supposed to kiss me. He wasn't no no shit. Yeah he did it because the scene was flat. He just kept hugging me. That's what the script said. And so like the fourth or fifth time he came in and and his nose is getting closer to pick a aside. What are you doing. I'm like oh no. He's not picking aside. We're kissing. And i'm like i'm like i can't laugh because because then we have to do it over and over again and then they know what's happening the of all those all those stupid reactions are real. We did at one time it made was also adds. Whoa yeah yeah. that's incredible. Yeah great 'cause you know there's audience so you you can have your timing you. There's no people laughing interfering with the comedy. Yeah you know so we sold. It was about the original. And that's what was great about that as well. That's right and then i mean i. It's kind of a big question. Where sort of running out of time. Maybe we should shift gears unless there's anything else office you want. Hit how it changed your life. What you learned. I m curious maybe the greatest lesson you learned about acting through that process i techniques and memorization are very important nixon memorization. I guess how to memorize. I don't think i'm going to break any acting techniques of like now. Learn how to weep. I don't i need i. I don't. I can't play that. I you know. I did a this. Show people of earth in greg daniels called me up and he's like you can be a precent astronaut boy which when you kick it. I'm like i'll be a priest. He knows my range. I like uniforms. I like to. I can act that way gives me. I'm a doctor. i'm a young. i'm just a person then. It's like well okay. I'll i'll be a person a person who doesn't cry. You're my tear. Ducts are so get a cova that will do it. I like comedy. I like comedy. I could do drama but it's work. It's hard work to concentrate. Really do it and take it seriously without trying to make fun of it right. But but but Yeah it was a i. I liked you know we. You memorize your stuff but but you know you did it. You can't memorize it because it might change on the day so you know. Be ready to memorize something within five minutes which carell had to do huge pieces of you know and that's always that's a good muscle to have handy. It's funny man. I'm in quarantine for two weeks in montreal before sheet this part in a movie. And you'd think maybe i think high school pete would think that this peed quarantined would be looking at the sides and rehearsing. Maybe planning and i'm like i will look at them and this is not for laziness actually tricked me into being better. I'll look at them today. I want to have that adrenaline of like maybe the day. Before the adrenalin of like okay. This is what it is the first rehearsal the first take basically a rehearsal and then like we're going to figure it out and it'll be fresh playing a someone kind of like yourself exactly. Yeah i'm not playing. Yeah yes a thirteen. Th century barron. Yes i'm not truman capote. I can just be me. And i can talk and sometimes i'll write down little things not even knowing what the scene is. And i'm like. I had one for the last time we shot. I was like it'd be funny because i'm playing an uncle. If he calls billie eilish billy eyelash just like the slightest throwaway so i said are a reminder on my phone.

"Think it was saturday. Night like clockwork. The neighbor upstairs like the middle of a sketch. Like maybe at midnight or something he would come down and bang on the door outside with a hammer because we're making too much noise like clockwork. And then one of the people performing joel marks especially he was big and and good with people de escalating would leave the state to go up there and open the door and come down and say we're almost that's not the norm and then and then he would and that would be enough anyway. Go upstairs but it happened. Every saturday he come out with a hammer. Ohio would have to talk to what over. Excuse me excuse me everyone. Excuse me if people with happening nothing is on. Us is not nothing's happening. It's hard to divert attention from a man an angry man with a hammer and i love. He diffused him by saying theater. Like we gotta say larry. We always go through this. You know what's going to end soon will be done in a minute please. We're sorry every day every weekend. It's the same that's right you should be used to That was the show. We should have had a mike and camera on joel. Did you get a sense that you were good at it here. Where you standing out where you feeling. What's motivating your mood earbuds. La i mean you gotta. It was a intimidating. I knew i can get a handle on it. I knew that i should be doing this. Even in the early struggle there was in the open mic. It's like don't compare yourself to the grades. Compare yourself to the other people at the open mic like. So you're feeling i can hold my own. Yeah yeah i yes. i'm thinking. this is way overdue. Yeah ghana college and big normal and then join a group in college and all that crap but it didn't happen that way. I had go another way the longer way but it longer. It all worked out so you where do you get it in your head to go to la. Who tells you who tells you about the promised. Land i just it was my wife just handed me a note The president yeah. My daughter's doing yoga and she's going to go walk our dog. It was just the last. The next place to go was fun. But i was getting older. And it's it's hard. It's hard not not having wealth or struggling. New york is a struggle and after a while charm wears off. And i'm like i'm to go to la and see what happens there and if nothing then i'll end up in japan on just gonna keep going west. I guess i'll give them not coming back. But i'm not going back like david bursaspor west to who knows where. Yeah so so. I'm like and then when i got him like. Oh yes it's easier here. There's backyards there's more trees you get more bang for your buck. Yeah it's it's it's different. It's less stressful. I completely agree. I would new york for seven eight years. And when i got to la. I was like the same cost of apartment and it was like obviously all the things it was way. Bigger it was always sunny isles. I had a little yard. Everybody seemed a little bit more relaxed. Not everywhere in la but in my neighborhood. It was like this calm. I like yes. It's good the only bad thing. Is that it lures. You sometimes thinking of doing something with nothing is happening. And you're like i could get used to this. No don't get used to it. You do something because you know. Funny i forget who was. I think it might have been robert. Kelly the comedian moved to venice. And patrice o'neal who was on the office. Units right yeah. The trees visited robert. I think it was robert in his place in venice. And that's what was happening to bobby. He was loving. He was living on the beach. It might have been somebody else might have been bill. Burr might have been drawled. I don't know but he cooked chicken wings and patrice was like i. These are the best chicken wings. I've had in my life and it was like thanks like i think you need to do a set like you need to get out and do shows because you just cook me the best chicken wings i've ever had in my life. You didn't move to la to go to the beach and cook chicken wings go fuck and hustle. In the way that only patrice could not. I can only poorly paraphrase led the allures like. They're the people that are in l. a. And they think being in la is the success itself when really. and you're like an patrice. I just got here only been like six years. Feel like you just got here and it's like now you having just gotten here. He's a class. It's because there's i mean. Because there's no seasons your. It's been one week a year. Yeah it's it's crazy and you're and you're like that whole thing of of being on the east coast which took a long time to get used to calling someone up and saying. Hey what are you doing nothing. Let's go let's go. Let's go for a beer or whatever. I'll meet you in fifteen minutes. Go to this corner that quarter here. You're like whoa whoa. Whoa whoa. Whoa no i like in two weeks. I can go.

No and no one can just show up in your house and knock on the door like what's happening. Who is that. Yeah it's weird. No it is very different. it's different. That's what i like about las villas is you can walk around and yes. There's a lotta comedy people unless feelers. I can't go for a walk without running into somebody. I know so that silver lake silverlake will feel as neighborhoody right and hyde park. I think at while they don't have a sidewalk. There's no sidewalk outside my street. There's this is a street like this. No one can go out you know. Well that's the problem to the isolation of la remember in the movie crash. They're like people get an accident just to talk to each other. I was like that's very. La phenomenon yeah. I remember being an audition. When i i was just visiting l. a. and i just couldn't get over the fact that once you're isolated you start craving isolation becomes your new normal and i remember normal. I said to everybody in the audition was like when i go grocery shopping. If i turned down in ireland someone else's down. I'll go to the next aisle and everyone is nodding.

"Yeah and did that inform. I okay now. I think we're catching up to a fit book first year in high school. Did you do any theater. Did you get into comedy around this now. No i didn't.

I wasn't that i was a class clown but there was like ten of us like there was a lot of guys all in one little car to all in the wholesale michaels say michael's grammar school and it was a when we moved there. It was a italians. germans irish and cubans and all these cubans went there. So they were like what are these are these cubans. Oh but they're catholic and they go to private school. I guess they're cool. So we kind of assimilated. Is that true like the shared catholicism. Sort of smooth out the yeah. I went to irish catholic school. But i mean it made you more readily accepted. Do you feel. I think so. Yeah i think so it was. It was was very kanye like if you were pitching the story. Like if we're gonna make the the it's called high nunez or high noon The story we're gonna we're gonna have to go to new jersey northern new jersey and we're going to have a lot of guys in leather jackets saying they're walking here and then you're going to be the other right i mean. Isn't that the movie we i could be. Were the wrong suede suede jacket. And they're doing. I rolling cigars. Yes and they're like i'm trying. I'm trying but it's not working. Yeah but it was then that something will happen. Yeah it was easy. It was easier than that. I'm happy to hear that the hardest thing was the language we had to learn a language. Because at this point you didn't speak english until then of course i didn't. I spoke english before my parents. Because i was little so i kind of started speaking at a massachusetts by watching television. I still. I still didn't know when i got to new jersey took me year then i then i learned it. Okay and then you're so at first. You're being funny in a second language. I i can't imagine i speak spanish going venezuelan being funny in in spain. I wasn't fun i was. I was started in the fourth grade. Once i knew english left-back in the first grade. Because i didn't speak english yet. Okay so i got back in the first grade and then the second time i did i knew english. Okay now. we're doing bits and now we're bits and is it. What you mentioned. I mean monty python is around at this point. You got carol burnett not yet. Not yet yeah. Monty python came around when i was in thinking highschool or something. Okay and it was. It was amazing. Woody allen monty python. That was yeah. That was the whole thing who is showing you this stuff. Is it your dad or your friends. No cousin eddy came home and said cover nettie. He's like he's like. There's this guy. Woody allen movie everything you wanted to know about sex and you gotta see this movie and so woody allen but monty python was just at school. People were like watching monty python. Started watching a my television set at home. And i remember watching being in my room sitting on my bed by myself. Watching monty python sketch were there. It's like the victorian era and they're on a lawn picnic blankets and they're all dress and the piano and i think it's a is it eric. Idle has a racquet and tennis. And he's like bobby tennis and he tosses a tennis ball dino this sketch no it hits it hits the guy on the head he wants to goes the cash and it just bounces lightly off his head and he starts bleeding from his and he bumps into somebody in their hand balls and then the guy playing the piano somewhere bums to the piano and the the the thing falls on his hands and he pulls his wrists and the camera pulls back. And it's just it's bloody scene for no reason and i was sitting on my betting. I laughed so hard. I fell off. The bed. landed on. The floor farted and kept laughing and i'm thinking to myself. This is really funny. These guys this is for me as the last part is one of the best parts never had never happened before i ever since making a mental note like all these guys they got me. I love that so much. And i like thinking about comedy. It is super funny because the aristocracy in the more high high and tight we can be in our seersucker suits and playing tennis milan. We are just bags. The blood i mean. That's the joke. You know what i mean. It's like yes put on a thing that covers up your neck. In the victorian era use still get diarrhea like that. It doesn't matter natural. Comedy is the queen of inventory in england had to run and lift the hula hoop skirt above her head and shoot liquid fire from her powder to ask and they contain with buckles and straps and letter and index. Like every three the wrist. Why were is this going then. Hours to get dressed go go promenade for forty five minutes and then then you know you get unstrap before you pass out. I guess it's like a kardashian. We don't need this anymore. I i that's sort of what the not the office but the office setting is the same way i. I've made the joke before that like a three piece suit is just. You can't wear sweatpants the office because you pull him down to easily. You need suspenders. You need a belt. You need something on your person that says no ones getting naked. Here yes we are civilized. You know it's very fun. I love that so so you're laughing. Infighting i love little oscar falling and forwarding and laughing and bug is in you now. I'm very interested because here. You are one of the most recognizable performers very talented hilarious performing comedy. Internationally internationally. Cuba count you went to fit you then. You studied writing an f. Briefly were in dental school. I'm just wondering where. Where did the sirens finally grab you. Walk me through this. It's when you say it back like that. Unlike i might as well just make this up. It's it's such it's such a mishmash of nonsense. It's i blame it on my parents. They got divorced after it was bounced from place to place but the first place i landed was fit. 'cause my cousin eddy that guy. He was modeling. Who is modeling for this guy. Don robbie who would for. I wanna to say chris i wanna say he was. He was a designer for the christian.

"I oscar. I just steer the spotlight to you. We were about to start praising you and how wonderful you are Here we are. There's not enough time. I'll tell you what we when. I when i first started when i was. I was born in cuba. I my first introduction. I think it's i think it's kuba on sorry. I think p people have told me that seriously. They're like no shit like my jaw doesn't matter but my first introduction to comedy was was the cowburn burnett show and in particular harvey korman and he and he would do this bit. I'd be watching the show there with my dad and he'd do this bit where he would. They were already on stage. Doing a stupid of play. One of their plays and it was like ken. Berry and cow burnett doing a like a confederate thing or something then and then he would walk in to join them and the audience would applaud and instead of going right to stays to join them he would break the fourth wall like he had no choice and go and start bowing to the and they're waiting for him and we'll look at her lodge and he's like bowing before he entered the seat in my father would lose his shit because he did theater in at the university of havana and he'd be like oscar there waiting for him boom he's all about saddam beach not and they're waiting for all my and i'm like oh and i'm like and i remember thinking he's not really pissed at him he's like fake mad at him he's laughing and i'm like and i'm like he's not mad he gets the and i'm like oh and and harvey he's he's not really doing that he's breaking the fourth wall yeah this is cool. I want to do that with these. People are doing like sketch. Comedy did that as if i thought my dad. My mom laughed at comedy. She always put the funny pages out for us on sundays with pride. We liked comedy and seeing grownups. That think it's important and valid or are vulnerable enough to laugh like it's vulnerable thing your dad's leading his kids. See him laugh. I don't think it should be a vulnerable thing. But i think there are some dads like. Don't let them see you cry or laugh or you know. Be the general. Well those are those guys who are like the days are funny. They don't mean to people. We must laugh at them. And it's okay. That's the people it's messed up. But your dad sounds like he was a joyful. He was a lawyer right. I mean he was really in cuba. That's show business that's right. They came here and my aunt and cousin. Got it social work. He didn't take his bargain when he came here. He got his way. He went to fordham not rutgers. He went to fordham and got a master's in social work so he chose to not like. Was it a fresh start or was he just. The bar is to overwhelming to try. And i think it was too overwhelming in in the new language. It would have been so so. They did that. They would social work but they were but they were you know. They were in the theater at the university of van and all that so he went to opera. You wore a cape not. Ironically you dad to go to the opera my sister and i were looking for them as the he's wearing a cape. That is odd dad's wearing a k. k. Like the seinfeld episode or the operan. He they went to movies. And they went to broadway and all that stuff never wanted to emulate your dad and just rock out a little cape. Maybe a bath towel. I i i like fashion. I have yeah he. I didn't think of that influenced me a lot. Yeah did they. Yeah so the cape started as a punchline. Then i mean i saw that you ended up going to fit for a little bit. I did for a minute after high school. Well let's slow down your. When did you go to america. We left we left in sixty cuba. Yeah i think we left in sixty three. Were three thousand nine hundred sixty in cuba. What what year was it in the same year and same same zone as the east coast went to south america just one ear and didn't like it cut across venezuela and then went to massachusetts and we stayed in massachusetts for. I think a year and my sister was born there. Wow i'm from massachusetts. What part law firm is that. The thing waltham that's right next door to she was born in waltham. We we lived in boston for a year and then and then we moved from there and went to new jersey. And that's what we grew up. That's where i grew up in new jersey. Wonder well you might have been too young but there was a a bowling alley. Because i'm from lexington dam called wal lex meaning waltham and lexington on the border. There was a bowling alley. That more of i mean you were goin'. You dad was thrown on the cape. He was laying down strikes you. They're drinking grape soda. I i would have grown up there. But they all the efforts that first wave of cubans were settling in florida and new jersey. So all their friends when jersey so we left massachusetts. I could very easily grown up in massachusetts. It'd be like a different guy for the for the red sox and the yankees and new jersey groping new jersey. Oh i'm sorry you went to new jersey. Okay not too far but that happened at different. Yeah i mean. There's a lot of different jerseys. I feel like which jersey were you in northern right across lincoln tunnel okay so like new york city in. Yeah yeah. so you're in the sixth borough..

Get into it noon noon. I nunez alums right off with the nicknames. I'm hitting you with a high news I am not shooting a small part in a movie. I've said this ad nauseam on this show. So forgive me everybody but It's two weeks of quarantine for a fitting end a day of work. So it's it's real. The math doesn't really add up but I do appreciate the safety. And i am sort of losing it. Hit to answer your question a little bit more thoroughly. It's getting a bit much. Emmys your normal going crazy. That means you are normal. Yeah no. It would be bizarre. If i had like a tom cruise energy and was just really killing. You're doing cardio wild. were interviewing. get these out every. Sit up you ask then. Are you going to toronto. where are you going. i'm in montreal. Yeah i'm already here. They're already yeah. They won't let out of the hotel man. That's hard core this. Well you know. I was just telling katie. It's not that montreal. Yeah who's katie. Katie is the tech katie. Is right now okay. It's hard core. As i thought because i mean like they do check on you. That's not exaggerated but like really. There's always an element of trust. You know what i'm saying. I'm on east coast time. So i'm up till like three four in the morning so i'm like and i didn't. I want to be very clear about that. I didn't go for a walk or anything. But i was like if you did if i was like a real watkins attempt to do it but i feel like i could get away with it. I certainly would. Not if i open the door. I mask up. And then i wash my hands. As if i've walked through the mall of america. Yeah it really really serious. Where are you in. La yes we were in la were do you know ally gig graphically i live in. La all you do live here. Yeah why did. I thought you lived in new york because your show was shot. That's why yeah the show films in new york. So i a lot of people think i did live in new york but now i live in. La we live on a street. Called woodrow wilson near mahala by runyon canyon where people walk their dogs. Oh sure yeah. I used to live in so i would walk runyon. Yes we're at the top side up near mulholland. And that's fun. Yeah you live in a david lynch movie kind of nice to meet you. She's going to walk our dog granddaughter. It's such an obvious place to start. But i was not surprised but i was always curious if you were gay in real life because of the office and i get that a lot when people meet your wife. Do like what i thought. 'cause i'm such a fan of the show it must be something. Was that a decision. I mean i i remember. Your character isn't gay in the beginning. And we're not going to talk about the office the whole time. I promise you and then later he i guess he was gay but he they never bought out but it was just me playing myself right. Then the writers. They're like what season they made me gay. They made me gave the writers. They're like like a rumor started like they. They're making a character gain. I'm like oh pysche posh they. The writers are just bored. They're bored and they're talking. You know very fun. They're having fun but no but they made him gay and then and then like you mind if they make a character again. I'm like an. I don't mind i don't care and he goes okay. 'cause we have the script. I'm like okay night yet. You ask me after. But anyway so but he but so. They made him gain. I'm like oh now he's gay. What do i. How do i am. I'm like oh no. I don't have to do anything i can't change. Now it'd be weird. I just have to be which he was apparently gave a whole time. So i just keep doing what i was doing. I don't know he seemed very of course. They made him gay season one. I don't mean to comecon you. i think there's a reference to you going on a date with a woman or something so it felt like it was sort of. You're either bat deep in the closet that you were lying again to promises. Good for you. I had never watched it. I watched it during the quarantine all you did you watch the the quarantine it up. It's a good show. it's a great show. it's this show. I hate to be this guy. But i'm like did it really even for that time. It certainly pushed the envelope book for even for this time. It pushed the envelope. There's things where you're like. Yikes scott if seem grell wasn't so likable. Yeah all thing would just go right down the toilet because you were there. He says the worst thing in the world. But that's the whole thing his intent. It's all intention right right. Yeah that's exactly right. And they always masterfully pepper in the vulnerability. He doesn't know he doesn't know and he doesn't need it you know he's he's what was your relationship with comedy growing up because i can relate to that guy i embarrassed to say but especially when i was young. I mean like junior high so the eighties. And that's kind of what comedy was was you were supposed to be like They want us to call them homosexuals now or whatever it is or whatever michael would have a problem with. He would steer into that. 'cause that's what i feel like. The culture had sort of embraced as comedy was like masculine. Hetero normative Irreverence so when i am i was like that skewering part of me the part that i used to be more like when i was young. It's funny because now that now that you mentioned it. It was like so norman. Lear was that big hugh was right. The carroll o'connor archie. Yeah he was that guy who was like not apologetic but he was wrong. Yeah right it's different..
Pentagon drawing down troops in Afghanistan
"You know you and i both talked many times about the fact that we think it's long pastime for the us to be out of afghanistan but there are also these ongoing peace talks between an afghan group in the taliban. And i guess the question is would a fast withdrawal of twenty five hundred troops or so make it harder would lead to a hasty nato withdrawal Because i think there's like seven thousand nato forces there but they basically rely on the us military for logistics and often protection with lead the chaos. You could see a redux of obama in iraq and what two thousand fourteen end up sending troops back in to your point about how to make it harder for biden. This could be part of that. Yeah we've talked about the peace talks right that are going on between the afghan government. The taliban of the united pretty pessimistic about those. But this again drawing twenty five hundred troops out taking all out right again. Wh why is it so important. To trump have twenty five hundred instead of forty five hundred in an action that is not coordinated with any of those nato allies it is not coordinated with the afghan government. That is not factored into the peace negotiations. It just something that he is doing. Through like a handful of devon nunez apparatchiks the pentagon in the last minutes of his administration. He had four years to get this done if he wanted to get troops out of afghanistan or gada rock or out of somalia. Why is he doing this now. Why hasn't been working on this for these four years and people will hear me and say well what you want to keep all these troops these places no but the question is. How do you remove troops. How do you end wars and you do it by assessing. What are we doing in this country. What our missions. What security forces are relieving this too and what is the political and diplomatic context for what we're

"You as as a writer? Will I I met Susan Santiago because I was an editorial assistant to the New York review of books and that was in between college and Grad School and so I met her in passing there but then after I graduated from. Grad School. She had had her first bout of cancer. and. We lived very close to each other. You know just on one, hundred, six streets us at Riverside drive I was. Know just a few buildings away. And she wanted she had hers hers her surgery and she wanted she wanted to some help because she had this great big pile of correspondence that had built up while she was in the hospital. She just wanted somebody to sit there and type while she dictated and she asked her friends at the New York review of books if they could recommend somebody and since I lived so nearby they said well, why don't why don't you do this? And I did I mean we only did it for about twelve hours two to three two or three occasions but during that time I met her son. David Reef and yet we ended up a couple and at that time David was living in the same apartment as his mother and and also in Princeton where he was in school he was dividing his time between those two places. I. Ended up moving into the apartment with them at three forty riverside drive, and so we were living together as a little family. Now, her impact on me as a writer was was enormous. I mean enormous is something that I to day extremely grateful for and I guess the main thing is I've I've read her work and had read some of it before I met her in the course that was an influence because a lot of it is important. But But to meet her. And have her in my life. It was a different thing because. She she was somebody who made me feel like even at that point in my life where I never published anything where I didn't have any idea what I was doing really that you know that it was perfectly perfectly good idea and a right thing to do and even a noble thing to do to take myself in my work you know totally seriously and to think about making any kind of sacrifice I might have to for it. And that everything matters that you must read everything and just you know that kind of that kind of attitude and she just introduced me to so many different books and movies and just everything because she was a great sharer and she she She liked to be a big influence on anyone who was in her circle or you know she she She'd read something and thought it was great. She wasn't happy until she got in all these other people also to read it. Yeah. So the way I write the way I think that my attitude towards what it's like to be a writer all of this was influenced heavily by the time that I knew. Susan Sante. Was it important to you to have a mentor like that? Who was a woman? The weren't as many. Well, known women writers at the time as there are now absolutely. Yeah. I. Mean that was also a really important part of it because that was you know because the the idea was part of her mentoring was also don't let people influence you in such a way to make you think that because you're a woman, you can't do this or that or You're a woman writer in other words a lesser writer you know and don't don't be afraid to not. Look Feminine All these things are very important to her. Let me reintroduce you here. If you're just joining US my guest to Sigrid Nunez, her new novel is called. What are you going through?

Nunez's previous novel the friend when a two thousand eighteen national book award. When we left off, we were talking about her mentor and Friend Susan Solid Tag. You have said in an interview that you figured. You didn't want to be famous watching how fame had affected Susan Sonntags Life and the responsibilities that came with fame. So, we're some of the things that you saw. They're convinced. You didn't really want to be as famous as she was well I. Don't think I ever expected to be anywhere near as famous as she was but what gave me pause? was. How much of a distraction fame can be and what I saw sh she handled fame very well, I mean, the thing is that she she was able to do a lot. And she always wanted to do a lot and I'm someone who always only wanted to do one thing well. And I have this great new need for solitude. And she was the exact opposite. There's nothing that she hated more than being alone. There were so many demands and so many distractions and she didn't have any trouble keeping up. But I looked at that and I thought well, if this, if this is the writer's life that's not going to work for me, I could never handle anything like that. But of course, I knew that there was a whole other kind of writer's life obscurity. Left quite alone and you know and I knew of were new other writers who even though they were publishing and they were successful they didn't have anything like her celebrity and therefore they also didn't have the kinds of demands and plus the public of it. When you're as famous as she is you attract a certain amount of negative attention as well. She was able to handle that well also, but I if I tried to put myself in that position I thought it was actually quite quite.

It's about the fear that climate change a pandemic and far right regimes will spell the end of civilization and the death of the planet.

Lord Schwartz reviews it to CD set of excerpts of live performances by Leontyne price. The first black soprano to have a major career at the Metropolitan Opera. and John Powers reviews the Netflix series, the Queen's Gambit about a brilliant young woman new crashes, the traditionally male road of chess. My Guest Sigrid Nunez has written a new novel that's about facing the possible death of our planet from climate change while also dealing with our mortality as individuals, she wrote it before the pandemic but one of her previous novels was set during a flu pandemic that results in anarchy. The narrator of the new novel is a woman WHO's. Is a well known professor and author who's been writing and giving talks about how climate change terrorism cyberterrorism the threat of a pandemic far-right regimes and corporate power or a threat to life liberty and civilization. He angers audiences by suggesting maybe it's time to stop having children. On. A more personal. The narrators old friend famous writer and intellectual is dying of cancer and wants her final days to be spent in solitude, but once a friend to be with her. She asks the narrator to be that person part of the dying woman's plan is to enter life with a euthanasia drug when she feels the time is right. In New, York, Times Book, Review, Janice Lee, wrote in what are you going through? Nunez tells the simplest of stories about a woman accompanying a terminally ill friend through her last month and expanded into an exploration of the largest themes nothing less than the realities of living and dying in this world and how we feel about both. Suge Nunez received a twenty eighteen national book award for her previous novel the friend she started Princeton and Columbia and currently teaches at Boston University. Sigrid Nunez welcome back to fresh air. I love the novel. Thank you for writing it. So I want you to do a short reading from the book, and this is one the friend who's dying from cancer tells the narrator that she wants to go somewhere else to die and the narrator thinks. Friend, is just ask her to help her find a nice spot to go to but her friend describes which you really means what she really wants. Would you read that excerpt fourth? Yes sure. What I really want is to find some quiet place. It doesn't have to be far away in fact, it shouldn't be too far and it doesn't have to be anything particularly special just somewhere I can be peaceful and do the last things that need to be done and think my last thoughts she adds as her breath runs out whatever they might be. I relaxed my grip on my glass. So all she's asking is for me to help her find this ideal place. I asked her whether she sure about wanting to be in a strange place rather than home. I think it will make it easier. She says so long as it's a comfortable safe attractive place I've done a lot of my best work. My best thinking away from home on visiting fellowships, for example, on meditation retreats in Hotels. I think it will be easier to prepare to focus on letting go if I'm someplace where I won't be surrounded by intimate familiar things all those reminders of attachments and so on. Of, course I could be wrong. She says, and this could turn out to be some kind of fantasy but I've thought a lot about it and it feels right to me. Am I, making any sense? I think. So I say and you need my help finding a place or helping you get settled in. No she says I can do that myself. I've already started looking. She lays one palm flat on the table and presses her other hand on top it to quell or hide the tremor. What I need is someone to be there with me. She says I'll want some solitude. Of course, is what I'm used to after all what I've always craved dying hasn't changed that. But I can't be completely alone I mean this is a new adventure who can say what it will really be like what if something goes wrong what if everything goes wrong I need to know there's someone in the next room. People think of a good death as death surrounded by family and friends being lifted up by them. Being spoken to you have your hand held being sung to. The idea of needing solitude a place that would be peaceful but not be surrounded by things you're attached to or by people you're attached to just by one person who's there in case of person who's a friend but not family you wrote that did you understand the sentiment that you were writing? I did I believe I did I felt that I felt that this was a way that a certain kind of person would feel you know this this character, she has a daughter, but she's estranged from her daughter and she's single at the moment and she has. Asked her closest friends if they will be with her at the end and they've said, no because they do not want to be there if she's going to take her own life much as they don't want to hurt her to suffer much as they understand why she wants to choose her own moment to die they know they would not be able to do that. So she calls on this old friend who at least at the moment isn't very, very close to her. They were closed when they were younger and they've always stayed in touch and there's a thing about her about this character is that she's In a sense she she wants things to be as As orderly as possible as peaceful as possible, and also to be as little trouble to anyone as possible. That's just just that's just in her nature but I think that if she were dying without having the idea that she was going to use these drugs then maybe she would. Have other people around her and holding her hand and so on. But there is that idea that if you're going to take your own life, not everybody is going to want to be there and is going to allow that to happen. So part of your book the part of it, that's about how the world is on the brink. Know possibly the end of civilization the end of the planet because cyber terrorism and bioterrorists resume and climate change global warming pandemic. You actually wrote the book before the pandemic. Yes and it's published just as numbers are really going up again and have an earlier novel about an influenza pandemic. What made you write about that before we were actually. In the middle of one, I mean, it's not the flu, but it is a pandemic. There were a COUPLA things one, I, am someone who always thought. From what I knew that sometime in my lifetime, there would be another great flu. That you you always knew that. I always knew that I mean I. I knew that because I was aware of the science that said that it's not a question of if but when I mean I that that that that has that's that's been well known and you know I I would come upon things that were you know that were said by Dr about this well, before the the new pandemic, the pandemic that we're living through and I knew that Mary McCarthy had lost both of her parents in that flew and I remember when I learned that as a as a younger person I thought that was so terrible but then.

Weird. Thing to say So so thank you to all the all the fans who have gone to fictional brands dot net and bought some things I put up some masks, oh? Yeah.

But if you put it design on this, you can read it. Yes. It turns out that on the site. If, you want to sell these, this has to be an option. I've done is I've put I've put in the description don't get this unless I specifically say because I'm going to try to see if I can do it is because I like this read it, right? Yeah. I'm going to try to see if I can do design that works on this but I find that it's going to be very difficult Funny Mask sales or this. We've given you.

And so I took it upon myself to say I can't answer that right now nobody used in the one second after he. gave a time I probably jump in here you. That's right. You said I can't answer that right now in a way as if he'd been bothering you about it for a half hour. One time I just. Did any of you answer him no. Because because normal Monday question. Think of an answer respond while I was really thinking you yell at him. I was with Elliott in the sense that I assume this Elliott was going through I was dealing with a tech thing and I was like I cannot deal with your favorite umbrella. You didn't. You just didn't realize. So my my solution to just not say anything and my and my defense I didn't ask you because I wasn't here. That's fair rhetorical anyway like nobody's going to know where the sun's GonNa go well I know the sun will come up tomorrow. That's anti. Bet You motherfucker about my bottom dollar.

Interview with Jim Seimas Sports Editor of the Santa Cruz Sentinel
"A very special guest the sports editor for the Santa Cruz Sentinel 23 time Associated Press sports editor award-winner Jim seimas, Jim. Welcome to the show off you drop. Thanks for having me. Appreciate it Jim and I have had the awesome opportunity of meeting each other in a couple of different capacities over the last year or so first. I met you as an intern for the pajaronian wage when I was reveley scholar studying under Brad kava at Cabrillo and then later, you know in my role of sports and Information Specialist at Cabrillo and you obviously still with the Sentinel we wanted to be on the show today because Danny and I are both making money in our careers as writers, you know, we do writing here and there and I guess you could say that we had an innate interests in people who not only right but also write for the Sentinel because we've had on Ryan Masters before a former Sentinel writer who body surfed at wage. Rick's back in I think 2006 that Joe is that the year that he at Mavericks something like that. I'd have to double-check his old writings, but it was early mid two thousand. This may be late home or remembering and Ryan was an amazing interview. He was really fun and we kind of learned our lesson that when it comes to having guests on the show, you really want to look for people who are comfortable using their words took a story and who have a lot of experience kind of funneling down their information, but for somebody like me who grew up reading Hunter Thompson and a lot of writers that came originally from a sports writing background. I've always had this this Romanticism if you will of of what a sports writer is and that was kind of pushed ahead by working for Tony Nunez who was at the time the sports editor at the potter onia now, he is the managing editor and you know working with you and meeting Julie and leading one and I guess it's really cool meeting these people who spend dead. The the bulk of their time living in sport and and kind of articulating and taking sport out and a big part of what I've tried to do during my time to Cabrillo is digitized r-sport make them available for streaming online. Mostly for the purpose of trying to let more people get a chance to a common experience that activity as we enter a world following this covid-19 Choice. It's not following yet. But has we live in this kind of post covid-19 world the time before fans will be allowed back to watch sports happen will probably come after Sportz get back underway, which means that people like us are all of a sudden going to be really pushed back to the Forefront and be creating this bridge to connect people with this activity that they truly love and care for or players or teams or whatever. So kind of from that launching point. Where where did you first get started as a writer and what made you decide that that way? Are you were going to you know, keep the bills paid? Was funny cuz I interviewed so many kids that are college committed and asked what they're going to major in and half of them don't know and I'm fine with that. But I and then there's other kids who do they knew in fifth grade that I wanted to be a sportswriter. Excuse me. I have some allergies here. So I, every now and then around fourth fifth grade page and initially wanted to be like the San Francisco Giants announcer and there's only two of them and I know like connection to baseball whatsoever other than being a fan and I kind of even figured out that age like hey there I you know X ball players are getting these jobs. You're not going to get one and then, you know, just taking radio television type stuff and you know if I had a face or voice for neither, so I just kind of jumped into you know, a fifth grade. We did a little writing project. Would that where we had our books published or bound at least and I can't remember it was unbeknownst to me boss. So maybe in a contest and I wasn't a very good writer, but it won an award and I was very happy about that. I still have that book in my basement. I would like to say it was probably like Game of Thrones before Game of Thrones happened, but far simpler only three pages. So, you know, I did my own artwork for it with you know, drawings and swords and blood. Anyway, that was awful. I was hooked. I obviously don't like didn't read recently like a large audience at all, but I have so much fun writing that I really enjoyed creative writing in junior high school besides that my writing was absolutely atrocious growing up all my papers were covered in red ink from the teachers and that kind of was like the kitchen me ask to like. Hey, let's let's try harder at this. Let's try and figure out how to construct a sentence a little bit better and and your thoughts and I'm specimens. I'm still battling today, but I remember I try not to be sports editor wage. Junior High and the junior high paper is pretty much all song dedications and this and that and very little of substance but I got beat out for that position and took still enjoyed writing and then I did I did a couple of years on my high school paper at Westmont high and Campbell. And again, I did poorly in this like a British literature class. So I actually took off journalism twice you're only allowed to take it once but I knew that's what I was going to go into and you know, so and after that I went to West Valley College in Saratoga and I did far too many semesters on their page Church went to San Jose State did far too many semesters on their paper. I wasn't really like set on graduating. I was having so much fun on each step. Excuse me, boss. So on each stamp learning so much, you know when you were

Declassified Susan Rice email shows Obama team discussed Russian dealings
"Well on the occasion last week of the first tranche of the classifications by acting deny Richard Grinnell that provided some detail on all of the unmasking requests that were made by all of the various Obama administration personnel as it pertains to Michael Flynn and perhaps others Ron Johnson and Chuck Grassley the two centers in Wisconsin and Iowa respectively want more details more a documents declassified because they have more concern that perhaps the surveillance that was being conducted by Obama administration officials predates operation crossfire hurricane on that occasion last week John Brennan former CIA director took to his safe space and M. S. N. B. C. and had this reaction this is also going out and saying give me everything about Michael Flynn absolutely not and quite interestingly the number of reports so we're in December sixteen and January seventeen that were declassified by Richard Grinnell I was surprised at how many dates and reports that were there then what was the ground should do is to declassify and release the contents of those reports in terms of what's the individuals were involved with but what he's doing now is just releasing the names of individuals who again were carrying out their authorized responsibilities shin director Brennan he's getting there yesterday to classifying a email from Susan rice that seems to run counter to things Susan rice was saying in public from a national security perspective president Obama said he wants to be sure that as we engage with the incoming team are mindful to ascertain if there is any reason we cannot share information fully as it relates to Russia rice wrote call me said he does have some concerns that incoming NSA Flanaess speaking frequently with Russian ambassador Kislyak Comey said that could be an issue as it relates to sharing sensitive information president Obama asked of Comey was saying the NSC should not pass sensitive information related to Russia to flan Comey replied potentially adding that there's no indication thus far that Flynn has passed classified information to kids they act but he noted the level of communication is unusual potentially we should not pass sense of information to the incoming president incoming national security adviser is that properly or or fairly Radisson body trying to insinuate his way into a counterintelligence operation against general Flynn well that's what Susan rice memorialized in an email here's Susan rice back on March twenty second of twenty seventeen just a couple months into the trump administration in a sit down on PBS with Judy Woodruff what she had to say about what she knew do you know anything about this I know nothing about this I was surprised to see reports from chairman Nunes on that count today fresh off her performance in the Benghazi a misdirection cover up however you want to describe it we get this from Susan rice I really don't know what to what chairman Nunez was referring but he said that whatever he was referring to was a legal lawful surveillance and that it was potentially incidental collection on American citizens and I think it's important for people to understand what incidental means that means that the target was a either a foreign entity D. or somebody under criminal investigation and that the Americans who were talking to those targets may have been picked up well Devin newness has since revised and extended his remarks so perhaps is in rice would like to do the same for more on this we're pleased to be joined by Fred flights he's a former CIA analyst now president CEO at center for security policy former Deputy Assistant to the president into the chief of staff of the National Security Council thanks for joining us again forget it good to be here about what Susan rice said in twenty seventeen verses what Susan rice memorialized about this January fifth twenty seventeen meeting well wishers lined clearly she knew that there was electronic surveillance of general Flynn what this comes down to what is the intention of B. bomber stretching from the top from president Obama not to honor the very important principle of our democracy and that's called the peaceful transfer of power under that principle the outgoing administration cooperates fully with the incumbent won eight daughters the the will of the people turned over the keys to the officers tells all about farm policy mission underway gives them all the intelligence operations and intelligence they collected they don't withhold information from the incoming president and Tucker offices to use this information to investigate the next administration to undermine it it's really very serious violation of our whole system of government if they had concerns about general Flynn they had to tell the next administration about it cook told president trump and vice president pence and call me if needed later said he was held information twelve Attorney General sessions about Russia also this is an effort by an outgoing administration to undermine and destroy any incoming
