We were set up by a friend, our friend dial Ola Padre a genius woman with a lot of foresight and the venue or rather the excuse for us to meet was A. Gossip girl television viewing gathering usually viewing party, but it was it was not a party, right? Like it was a bunch of people on the couch watching TV. Younger listeners won't know what this means, but you used to have to just watch TV when it was on. Like just imagine that TV was on at a specific time kids. So when certain shows like gossip girl became popular, they were just a part of the Zeitgeist because they were only so many things that person could be watching said felt like everyone was watching it.

You know kind of you know like kind of person I was like, yeah. We probably have the same length feminist hope bags probably you know like there's some like ven diagram like overlap there. So like very superficially that was one thing but like within the context of the Party itself, you know I was like everything. Was Fun. It was like yes dioz absolutely. Correct. I love how this lady dresses I love every joke she's telling I love her look I like her ideas I like the way she talks you know when you like imprint on someone that you like immediately like it's almost like they can't do anything wrong like everything is just charming to you and so I was very charmed. It was like that for both of them. They just clicked in that because of the tote bags but because for both of them, they were just in the same as of life and experiencing this phase in the same way. That really was a kind of unsettled kind of unhappy searching point of my life. I mean we were in Washington DC where our peers were pretty transient. Kind of place where a lot of people will go and work for a few years and then move on us included and I think we realized when we went to retrace our steps to write this book that we each had a very close friend who at the time we met was like either in the process of moving or we knew they were just about out the door and there was that feeling of unrooted this is that even a word we were not rooted. And we were really trying to figure out what the next phase of our adult life was going to be like, and so I, think that it really was profound to meet someone who I connected with. So deeply because it really felt like, I don't know it felt like almost like immediately being routed to someone as opposed to being routed to a place which I had not felt in the almost two years I lived in DC at that point.

Chromecast with Google TV can finally take on Roku and Fire TV Stick 4k
"Veiled the guys last week and got a little lost in the shuffle with the nest audio and Pixel. Five debuts. So what's new what the chrome cast? So the big thing with the crown cast is that it now has a remote and an interface. Those are two long awaited features. You no longer have to rely solely on your phone or tablet or computer to take Netflix's Surg, Youtube and put it onto your TV and I mean, talk a little bit about some of the features on that remote, as well as the interface what what is new about it and is it was it like to us? So I guess we'll break this onto two things we'll start with what's new a google system is very present on the new chrome cast. There's a dedicated assistant button it actually is in a different hue on the remote stands out. It's Pretty active as far as being the interface as well, and you can actually control most of the chrome cats functions with Google system, which is great it really it does a nice job as far as what else is new beyond the interface remote that really covers the bulk of it. There's also Dobie vision and they'll be utmost if you have a compatible TV and sound system. What about that Google TV experience I know it's a revamped version of what they previously called Android TV what's different about it like how and how does it work? So it's kind of new for you page. So the big the big push with. Google TV is a new interface it a new layout that looks more like a Amazon's fire TV. than the old way, which had you basically scrolling through each apps now there's Content in the four as opposed to each APP having it's own separate. Column. Ero-. and. It makes it a lot easier to use it. It's designed to help you find things to watch. As. Opposed to mindlessly scrolling through. Netflix. And then scrolling through prime video or HBO or any of the other many streaming APPs that are available a lot. This seems like upgrade or anything you don't like about this thing. So I had a couple moments where it lacked it wasn't as fast as say Amazon's fire TV, stick four K., which is a similarly. Priced. Streaming dangle. That has Alexis Google Assistant. Random issues where assistant where if I asked to watch them a big marble and so I'd asked to watch avengers infinity war and it would start playing on. Youtube. TV through TBS which has the broadcast rights or the cable rights rather as opposed to recognizing that I subscribed to Disney plus and playing it in four K. on Disney plus subscription. So it just doesn't assistant doesn't always know right now what the best way to watch a particular show movies. It also had a weird issue where unofficial. Weird issue. But you can't actually power this or I wasn't able to power this off of the USB port on my television. I had to use the included seven and a half. Watt Power after which I don't know about you, I like plugging these things directly into the TV running off the USB power it's less cables to see it's easier to to install not having to find an empty outlet. And the fact that this at least with my lg Ola that I was testing into couple years old the old lead, but it's still a fairly recent TV. The fact that wouldn't power and function off of what was provided from the USB port was a bit surprising. Yes. Someone who has his roku plugged into the USB poor of his TV, I can definitely appreciate the need for something like that because it cuts down on the number wires behind your TV. And living in a household with multiple kids you WanNa have as few wires as possible. So that's kind of annoying. Setback. But you know that that that's not the biggest deal you talked about Google assistant and how it's front and center in this Did you find when you were using this? You're using Google system a lot more or were you reverting back this year? The traditional way you'd use remote control, right just the using the standard volume channel of Buns or like how how did having assistant on their control changed the way you interact with this change in the couple is so. Big in the ANDROID. Google TV. Sorry interfaces for you page which I guess it's a personalized page based off of shows and movies that you like and. Content that you traditionally watch and what is recommending was actually pretty good. That's the default homepage. Ties in necessarily to the assistant the ties to some that personalization aspects I find that to be pretty useful as far as what Google is doing there, and for the assistant director part the voice portion of it. I found myself constantly using assistant to open APPs or two. I was using TV and fan. So just to switch between football and the Yankee game saying. Okay Google the key game in having automatically switched to the right channel. Was Super Helpful and it was doing this regardless of whatever APP was in. So I was watching something on Netflix are on regular youtube and I wanted to see what was going on the Yankee game I'd say Okay Google hold the button down okay Google go to the Yankees game and it would do that. Sometimes it took a few seconds to do that at one point I timed. It knows over ten, which for live TV is pretty bad. Ten second wait between when you want to go somewhere say you WanNa go somewhere and when it actually appears. that needs to improve tremendously, and it wasn't that I had a bad internet connection I have couple hundred megabits per second more on testing. So that needs to improve at otherwise the assistant has been great to use an pretty surprised to say that because voice assistance on these streaming devices. Has Been At least in my experience a bit more hit or miss. So taken together with all these new features, their control and just to clarify. Cost, fifty dollars and that's that's more than the previous rate it is. Go to models previously, there was a chrome cast macroom castle tre. So this does pretty much everything. The chrome cats ultra does the higher end I believe it was seventy dollars model that now's only available in a stadium bundle for now studios actually coming to. Chrome cast with Google TV, this new device, but it's not coming until sometime officially in the believe first half of twenty twenty one. So sometime, next year. So this is actually cheaper. The matter is more expensive than the HD, only chrome cast but that for I believe it was thirty dollars, lacks the interface lacks a remote lacks four case for twenty dollars more you get all that plus the ability to run all these APPs without having to rely on your phone computer tablet. Got It. So taking all together, the price, the new features, the remote control, how does this stack up against similar option from Roku, Amazon through its fire TV line so that's a great question. It really depends on what world you live in. That's how look at this. If you are somebody who has a lot of Amazon devices, I'm not gonNA say the word because I don't want to trigger things. If you have a lot of those devices and you're very much in the Amazon World The fire TV stick four K. is excellent. It's faster than this. The election degration sorry said that word is not as strong as Google, assistant. But it is a very capable, very impressive device. If you have a lot of apple devices roku streaming stick plus which is forty dollars is an equally compelling option especially when it has play which roku announce, the other week is coming at some point soon. So it really depends on where you you find yourself if you just want all the APPs and this has hbo Mac, which is something that Amazon, Roku currently lack. This is not a bad option. Yeah. That was the fault question there because there's been a lot fusion about which streaming services are available on in which dreamers. The generally, the chrome cast is pretty much covered for all your services, the croome cast with Google TV, because they're still regular chrome cast being sold. This one has I would say out of the major ones ninety, nine percents of is missing. Apple. TV plus. Is available on Roku Amazon, and of course, the Apple TV if you want something that currently has everything you have to get an apple TV. Apple TV. For K., but those I think the Apple TV fourcade currently hundred eighty dollars or so. So you have to pay a sizable upgrade plus some pretty old hardware at this point has been rumored to be prepping new boxes of some kind. Were to do that for a while maybe comes out your maybe it doesn't through kind of all over the map there. But that's the only one that has every major streaming service Google has everyone but apple TV plus roku Amazon have everyone bought Hbo Max so it really depends. You S reviewer I'm just curious how you put these things which pesos what is the review process look like especially when you're doing this at home It's a lot of watching. TV. And a of watching movies and seeing how it performs. In a variety of different settings. So different TV's different picture options with different content sources so Disney plot for example, on the Google TV doesn't stream currently until be vision but Netflix does have some content available in dolby vision and will be. Available on the chrome cast with Google TV. So it's it's comparing different things. It's comparing the performance of those content sources to how a roku streaming stick plosser Amazon Fire TV stick for K.. Would handle playing back that particular movie or TV show or piece of live. Content TV's sports. And just comparing and contrasting to watching that sounds like a really tough job. Ultimately is worth. Fifty dollars I think. So if you again keeping in mind that. The exact situation will vary if you like Apple TV, this is not the option for you. If you have a very big Amazon household you wanted to tie in. Really. Well to your rings. And to some of your other Amazon devices. This isn't the option for you. if you want to do airplay, this isn't the option trio. But if you want something that's simple that has a solid interface that has really good remote and isn't that expensive at fifty dollars is a pretty good choice.
Thoughts on the new Pixel phones
"Today's kind of an interesting episode because we really did know almost all the details. Ahead of last week's announcement. So some of the details that we're going to give you you've heard before there is some new stuff in here but. And there was little to no, there were no surprises, right I mean. I guess there were a couple of like software surprises when you're talking about the Pixel Five, right? Like there was no, we got I can't believe. I can't fool the I can't believe they did this. Yeah totally. The one thing that. What did you guys think it'd be event itself. Random. Oh Yeah I would say that. The launch in event seemed very chill for them. They seem really confident in in a different way. So they weren't hyping things up or blowing things out of proportion. There was just kinda like, Hey, yeah. We're releasing a few devices and you hope you like them and that probably fit what they are actually launching. So I thought they didn't. Then, also probably fits the tone of the world. Yeah. Right because nobody nobody's really shooting fireworks and making a big deal about things. The more modest humble like here's what we got approach I. think that's a good. Time for more than half an hour of a soiree like listening in to tech event plus like. Virtual schooling the kids that's nobody offer. So right? Yeah. It was only half an hour and I have to say I was pretty happy about. Like all right cool they got in, they made the announcement and like like we said, you know a couple of times. Now, we already kind of knew everything google new. We already knew everything they really were light on details in the event I thought was really interesting like, yes, it was short. They announced four main devices which we're to talk about but even within the. Devices, they really did not go into the weeds. They're not talking about the processor that's inside the Pixel five they're talking more about like Pixel phones from a lifestyle perspective and kind of being happy with the photo performance, and the kind of little delights that you get with some of the software enhances stuff So they've but it was very light on those specific. Details. Pixel five of course was I would say the the more notable of the four devices only because it's the next Pixel. And everything that we already knew six ninety nine is the cost for that. Unit. There's not an xl size snapdragon seventy, sixty, five G. with five G. supporting subjects and millimeter wave a five G.. Aches Ram hundred twenty gigs of storage a six inch HD, plus Ola display with ninety hertz. Refresh rate to rear facing cameras the standard twelve point two megapixel. Camera which they've had in the last three or four pixels I. Mean it's it's basically the main sensor pixel phones as well as the the a series. Plus a sixteen megapixel ultra wide. So going from the telephoto last year to the ultra-wide this year forty, eighty, million, hour battery fifteen watt wireless charging also reverse wireless, charging rear, free a fingerprint sensor and an under display speaker which. I would say I'm a little concerned with because I, just I don't know sometimes the under displays speakers kind of approach as opposed to having like a little grill like I I don't know I wanna hear it to know but I think I saw like a video someone online had the pixel five already was kind of testing all these things indefinitely kind. Of. was saying that the speaker itself sounded Canada tinny. So I don't know if any of you saw any of those videos but no solely, which means no motion sense no face unlock here it's all fingerprint sensor going forward So starting with the hardware, are we like obviously it's what we expected because we knew all about it but Is Google offering enough with this next pixel flagship say to entice people brandon. What do you think? I, actually think that they priced it at least fifty dollars too much or if not one hundred dollars too much and I, think some of you might know about the whole mater millimeter wave thing with Reisen that might have a part in that but them kind of cutting out every single thing that is not absolutely necessary. is them obviously trying to get a lower? Price Point because it's working on their a-series devices. So they're trying to bring that at least on the higher end. Still I. Miss Things like the squeeze too for the assistant I miss face unlock, and if you remove solely, you lose the face unlock at least in terms of how Google's doing things. So there are some little magical things about a pixel device that I'm missing. Yeah I've come to actually really like the face unlock because it works so well on the floor Excel but I also like a rear facing fingerprint sensor which is. What a lot of other phones still have some of them have in display it is kind of also nice to have that direct kind of control over when I want to unlock my phone as opposed to the just happened to look at my phone and unlocked, and maybe I didn't want that. Maybe I wanted to look at the lock string content that sort of stuff. So. Let's see. Twenty two. What's that? Oh Twenty, all masks and everything. Good Point. That's a solid point the face, a lock on the Pixel. Four has been a little inconvenient. What I'm on about absolutely software. Wise. I feel like software wise is where we had at least some surprise. We didn't really know very much or at least I didn't know very much going into the event about extreme battery saver which they say promises up to forty eight hours. It's switches off a bunch of features on the phone I even more. So than it did before pases most APPs slows down the processor. It's just like if you need to stretch your battery this way do it and you can get two days out of it.

Specifically in our communities and there are. There are a lot of Asian Americans who work at the Post Office The post office connects us are far-flung relatives and friends, and in general we just thought it was time to give a little shine to this institution that.

I just Kinda remember Hollywood shuffle under if you've seen that movie Robert Townsend movie. where? Kind of what you're saying is one of the themes in the movie that. His family's like A. Get A job. The Postal Service it's it's you know it's it's a secure job. You know it's comfortable. It's something which you can rely on and Robert Townsend characters like I wanna be a star in Hollywood but you know as a black actor in Hollywood. You gotta deal with a whole lot of bullshit and movies about the bullshit and. Kind of like you know no spoilers or yes boilers. Movement. You haven't seen it. You should see it but. In the end in the end, actually the post service ends up being a where he lands and and you know he's it's sort of like a celebration affected like you can still do when you dream of but other things can also be part of that dream and anyway I'm kind of curious if if that's kind of the story of how how like your uncles and other folks in working for the post office to. For my grandfather. I believe he went in right after he was discharged from the military e- so he. He had served in the Cold War came back They relocated to Daly City from Dallas. and. I think he that's it hired pretty much on the spot. And it's still the case to this day So he he was there until I moved up here. And two, hundred five. I remember him getting village. One Am and coming home. And afternoon. He. Yeah it's interesting my Uncle Sam deal with him in Minneapolis. He got out of the Air Force and became a carrier pretty much immediately. And my uncle Kennedy in. Hawaii. I think he started in Minneapolis, but then transferred to Hawaii, which is apparently. The most requested transfer. Why And he's been a mechanic for. Sixty years. He's he's been there for a long time I. Think he's been here the longest.

Thailand reports 1 new coronavirus case, no new deaths
"Thailand has a population of seventy million yet. The country has recorded fewer than three thousand, two hundred fifty cases and fifty eight deaths, as of Thursday there had been no cases of transmission for about seven weeks. So how and why has it been sped the full devastation of covid nineteen well to tell us more I'm joined by Monaco's Bank correspondent. gwen were Robinson welcome back as ever. GWENT good to have you on monocle twenty four, so this seems to have been a country sped. Well I mean this is a very good question and it's obsessing. People particularly in this region, it should be said though that. Countries have also done like surprisingly well, including the and Mar Laos Cambodia these are all countries with very very fred the health system, so it's just as well. There were sped. And they were very slow some of them to actually look down, and in fact in the beginning some of the leader, for example in Cambodia was scoffing a little bit like Donald Trump at at the. It, so they were very slow to act and I like a lot of people, although experts will not say it There's very strong theories that he didn't humidity. Do have something to do with it. Clearly Kobe likes cold climates, and does not like warm, but humid climates. You can see in the Middle East in hot areas. They've succumbed quite badly, but that's very dry, so I think there's a theory there, but of course in Thailand with a a sort of. Not exactly a military government, but a government stuff full of former military officers they take great pride in their efficiency under claiming credit because of their excessive caution and This is now a real point of debate about how much it's Thailand prepared to kill it to coney for an obsession which has become an obsession with zero infections, and you know they are understandably proud that there's not been any local transmission for nearly seven weeks, but you can see. The fallout has been immense and the projections for unemployment for example. Example horrendous in fact, even the government's open economic forecasting think tank 'cause predicted eight point four million jobless people as a result of the code lockdown by the end of this year and an economic contraction of eight percent, which is huge, so I think you know, there are some cost-benefit these that really need to be done here, but as a as some people may be with. There's a lot of paranoia about meeting foreigners back into Thailand now. Indeed I mean we've seen some internal disputes within the authorities in Thailand. Resignations of economic ministers there's. Is there a sense that Thailand is very good at coping with stopping the spread of a pandemic, but has rather miss rather underestimated the huge economic damage that this could do. Well, I think you nailed it. With that point, that's right. It's a it's a trade off, and but interestingly the surveys I mean I don't know where the hell they're interviewing these people but the government released a survey last night, claiming of interviewed more than sixteen, hundred or around sixteen hundred ties throughout the country, showing that ninety eight percent of them feel that it is not yet time to let foreign of back in meanwhile, of course, you've got a tourism industry in freefall. Thailand is nearly twenty percent dependent for GDP on tourism and basically close to zero. Zero now they had forty million visitors last year and I think it sort of town around I. Don't know I mean. Nobody's getting in a very few foreigners or allowed him. Of course we enforcing the paranoia. I should've mentioned with the disclosure last week about the sort of very strange visit by an Egyptian military delegation, but promptly landed and took itself off for Jolie to the seaside resort of Rayon and turned out that one or gypsum military officer with infected with Kobe and tracking his movements seems like he went every. Shopping malls entertainment complex. The hotel restaurant. So the government has now tested about six thousand five hundred people in that Rayong area. It's all going into lockdown Ola hotel. The under strict guidelines and shopping malls are closed schools, and that has now spread to the resort area. Poppy are as well and these places that would just reopening after lockdown was lifted and struggling to basically domestic tourists, and now you know they've been set back, but you know if. If polls are believed to can be believed. I, you know it seems that you know. A lot of tides feel that you know they should still be cautious and that would imply that they're supporting the government. Meanwhile as you said, there's a lot of political turmoil and four key economic ministers resigned last week on group, and of course they were ousted following an internal reshuffle of the ruling party leadership and that SORTA quite. I'm not sure they're taking a rap for poor economic management. It's really more I think internal politics, but definitely the new team has a huge job ahead, and interestingly they haven't been very quick to announce the new team. Because apparently they're having a lot of cody getting very credible people to fill those shoes because It's going to be a very tough jaw. Publi. Couldn't Robinson in Bangkok?

you've been all over you've seen some things yeah i've seen a lot of cultures men so it's it's pretty cool kid that's three years old and those three years he's been on three different incontinence so that's pretty incredible i think so i mean i it's an amazing way honest what do you as a traveller as someone moon who's working in those different environments was the perspective that you try to bring with you because people talk about harvey open mind or trying to tackle a day by day day but three different continents three years i mean it takes a different mindset for when i was young i thought i was right about everything but then SEC different cultures different countries continents as you say then understand the people think it'd be different than you and you're not always right on an for me it's been been cool to to see how people live you know and also but for me to be honest i like the united states it's pretty good here we will dig into that you're wrong about what did you think you're right about that you were wrong about i mean maybe not wrong what did what have you learned what are the lessons that you they reflect on the stigma of these like for example americans are like this or the chad this is how china is for temple so i mean how we european sees the american is not the same as living here and experiencing americans for yourself i don't think i want to know how you seem to be perfectly honest with you maybe we'll dig into that maybe i want to talk about china tell me about the process leading up to you deciding to obviously take your family to china and to take your profession there too i'd did you make that decision i think i think the offer was a very good one it was it was simple and i knew it was the very good city to live in how to a norwegian player that was there already told me great things about it so for me was kind of total package where where it felt right to to go there on after that i mean it didn't sort out be the the best best transfer but i mean i'm glad i did what was what didn't work i think how how how the team played this style of play was wasn't right for me and also think from my family didn't enjoy the time that much so they they moved back after just one or two months in when you have a young kid you wanna wanna see him grow up and be there it's it's it's tough you know so for me going back here was a good choice and what was the thing that surprised you most about china maybe the culture i think beyond the field i think to around us like coming there ann's having robots greet you at the airport and like how far they come with technology that was for me unbelievable to see and it was a cool thing to experience we always hear about not being settled and family family such a big part of that too how does that change your life as a profession your family's not there i think you know overall all happiness is is very important because i think especially as a striker to you have to be very confident about yourself and if you start doubting stuff it's kind of a transparent to do your game on the i fell especially in in china that was what happened i think i'm very comfortable here in the united states it's an in the league and that's why it's been easier for me to to play well here do you like about the US you said it you think it's just easy easy lifestyle you know and the way the vibe of everything and of course i've been i've been i feel like i've been lucky with my teammates in how been welcomed of course but in general i really liked her how about this what is is it like to be a number nine who plays on a team with slots on for me it includes a lot of running but i mean it was of course as i grew up it was slot on his one of your idelson else in all it is a big person he's he's a great footballer so for me it was amazing to play with a guy but playing with the guy was was difficult you could see that not on the field that he is such a massive personality has such a sort of weight of expectations is that he demands so much from others that it may be sometimes hard to play with them did you how did you find his personality within the team because we also hear behind the scenes it's much different than on the field i think for me he's very funny guy he's he's he's a cool guy and his way but he's he's specialist is you say he's he's demanding personally i think it's not easy for everyone to be around a guy with that kind of winner mentality so it's its pros and cons what did you see in training from him that you've never seen before because i see the roundhouse kick goal against tronto see you see the things he doesn't games after imagine in what he's doing and training him in most players in the world i feel they have their skills that's pretty normal by he can do stuff that nobody else can you know like especially where he's fee can reach you know and it's also his technique and some of the offensive things vision that he has it's of course on another level than everybody else the galaxy five stars on the chest you new club DC united has four you're a club with a lotta history big signing edison florida's you were a big signing for them last year this is now in large part your team to score the goals it doesn't very offensive for the season i wanna smash everything yeah i mean i really i really want to score a lot more golsen i've i've done before now and i want to prove myself and i also want that extra star for my team so f- so it's an exciting year from what have you envisioned for yourself oh for this team when you think about the addition of mill assad with flora's coming in what has been told you what do you expect i think defensively simply solid last year and now we're adding some offensive pieces that for me as a striker is very exciting so you have a lot of the people that can give me assist smiling these days no doubt give me one travel suggestion before we get chatty rolla where would you send me as a citizen of the world to experience something new something different that i've never experienced before norway where norway the mountains to go skiing go skiing there so i can't believe okay i'll tell

So we've asked him to join us today to share all of his secrets about how to change careers. Ola? Chak Ubi is a lawyer turned screenwriter from Washington DC. Most recently he was a staff writer for our show, the ABC show, the fix and he's currently writing a live action fantasy movie for Disney. We started hearing about Ola when we were shooting the pilot for the fix our agent Matt solo visited set and while he was there. He was saying, hey, if this goes to series, I have a great writer for you. I just signed him. He's new. New. He's a lawyer from DC, and I think he would be great for the show. And so we read olas spec script, which was about the Monica Lewinsky situation, which was really interesting scandal. I think it's fair to handle. Okay. And we met with them. And here we are Ola. Welcome welcome. Thank you. Thank you so much for having me as we said, we get asked all the time. How can I go from being blank to being a TV writer, and you actually did this? You're a lawyer a successful lawyer in DC, and you became a Hollywood writer, you're doing TV and movies. So let's get into the whole story. First of all, I want to know when you went to law school. Did you wanna be a lawyer or did you just feel like you should go to law school definitely do not want to be a lawyer? I'm first generation Nigerian. And so growing up. My mother gave me a list of options. Starting with Dr ending with lawyer is to you. And Asterix next to engineer. But now that was it. But no, I had always wanted to do this. I'd always wanted to be a writer, but it just never seemed very practical, especially not having any connections to the industry and being on the complete wrong coast. And so by the time, I got to college I had dabbled in writing screenplays. None of them were ever. Really good. But it was definitely something that I loved it. Some that I at that time, you know, towards my junior year I put away and was like this is probably never going to happen. So let me do something more practical at what kind of law. Did you practice? All don't just meet you harshly. Okay. We promise we won't. Okay. I represented pharmaceutical companies. So you must love that. Yes. It was definitely edifying. Now, you wake up just feeling great about yourself. And how did you get there? Like, did you have a particular focus in law school or just that was the job? You got really interested in. I guess they call it mass torts in law school. I did really well. On those related courses. And somehow just found my way into that. I don't know what. Mass torts I doubt. Can you just explain that for the lay people here, they're just acts of harm that affect people on a broad scale? So you think of like when cars are Toyota has like recalls or things to prevent situations that might lead into something like that until mass tort. I like that we need to name an episode mass torts so you're there you're practicing was there an inciting incident that made you decide like I'm gonna take the leap. How did that happen avoi-? Now, this is probably a bigger conversation. There was an inciting incidence. Yes. So I was working in this firm, and I get a call from my mother, basically, she had basically a couple of days to leave the country. She was being too poor. And so that was kind of the catalyst for the events. And so this was back in two thousand thirteen and not that there's ever an ideal. Time to be sent away from the country. But this was during the height of the Boko haram in the Bulla outbreak in Nigeria. Traumatic and trying period. And so I guess she had been gone for about a year, and I've been meeting with immigration attorneys trying to find someone to take the case..

"It's six twenty one. This is all things considered from NPR news. I'm Ari Shapiro. And I'm Audie Cornish. My husband left me the plans for his next job. What did he this crew to pull it off? Here's the premise of widows the action packed heist thriller from director Steve McQueen masked men break into a private vault things go very very wrong, therefore wives, become four widows and to save their own lives. They become professional criminals, we have three days to look and move like a team of men. The best thing we have going for us as being we are why. Because no one thinks we have the pull this off by Ola Davis plays. The lead widow, Veronica she's lost. Her husband. She has no idea how she's gonna pay her bills. She is sinking under the weight of depression, and this act of criminality, it's almost like a metaphor for her to take ownership of her life. But at the same time, it's a way to pay that rent. It's a way to survive earlier this week. I sat down with Davis in front of a live audience in New York City for a conversation that was intense at times and very Frank. She told me that her character had to be more than Hollywood cliche. The biggest issue I have with heist films is who would go to any active criminality after they come from seemingly normal life who just goes out and commits a crime. So I needed to answer the question. Why if I approach any role like how Hollywood would wanna look at it like, okay? I know the demographic of the audience is gonna want right. They're gonna want the bathe next. Liam niece. Gotta be light. And funny. I'm not the actors for that. I really am not. I'm not to go to actress for that. But Steve McQueen definitely wanted to approach it realistically. That's how I approached it. I approach like a real woman. You mentioned Steve McQueen, obviously Oscar winner for twelve years, a slave and. Is there a way that your relationship was different than maybe you've had with other directors? Have Reggie say that there are times when you felt stifled or your ability to kind of have input in the creative process that you didn't always feel that power was he different. Yeah. He's different. He is a director that sees you. I always say that if I were not a celebrity. I would be invisible it's a larger question about how how black women are treated how authencity and beauty is appreciated.

"Rush grandparents, Andrew, and Helen, Shoebridge way family off. They don't climbing as we watched the kids tentatively scramble up the first side. Andrew tells me he's done this climb multiple times doesn't look so bad from here, but there are some very, very state points and very windy points. Then his wife Helen jumps in to tell me, cheap, isn't climbing for one main reason, and she was clear with her daughter about it. She told her that local aboriginal people ask that no one climbs the rock because it's sacred to them. I'm in favor of respecting the aboriginal people, and then they need to keep it sacred. But my daughter is very determined. See when tourists began coming to Ola ru back in the nineteen fifties. The local aboriginal community was not in charge. All they could do was ask that no one climb today. There's a cultural center nearby. By that spells out clearly how sacred the rock is and why it offends the aboriginal owners, the unindo people when tourists scamper on it, and there are signs all over the place that say, please don't climb Ambron buffalo. On the grandson of an old of traditional honor of Laura. The time traditional owner is a way of acknowledging that Australia's indigenous people actually owned the land. I even if today, someone else has a title to that land. But in the case of Ola route, the Australian government returned ownership to the traditional owners in nineteen eighty-five this huge rock has deep spiritual meaning to original owners, like Brian Butler and his family. As we sit at the base of Ola ru, he points up to the top ridge and tells me how the outline resembles a woman lying on her back Shilowa of the light lowering. You can actually say. A full head up. But let's family told him many stories about Ola rue as he grew up. Now he lives in South Australia about nine hundred miles away, but all through is still very important to him. It's moving, decide, spiritual while he looks on the climates on Ola Roo he's the picture of serenity, but Steve, Baldwin, the manager of the national park land that includes all ru is much more blunt. He's not indigenous, but he tells me that tourists climbing the rock is very offensive to the unindo by Coalinga which is so that comes from observing them on the club. As I talked to Australian tourists at the base of Ola ru, those this one sentiment expressed repeatedly a feeling that all route was an Australian treasury and they had a right as Australians to climate like this guy doing a few stretches because it's a hard climb. I remembered buying hot Glenn from Melbourne who was doubled over touching his toes when I talked to him or understand why the aboriginal people died want people to claw my do get that. But all respect the rock is all in them too. So I'm happy to climb it again and want to do it..
