The american league my first years and i remember being there and seeing him. But here's a weird thing for Listeners we were in the ballroom and it was like the parent the night of the hearings. Who's playing with who who's playing. What foursomes and everything was first class grand resort resorts first class. Everything ten star and everybody. Who's anybody is in this room. Bread hall mariel all these different luminaries. That are in the rude different alonzo. More like all. These people is amazing. Appalachians business people and i swear to god. All you heard was and he came floating in. I'll tell you a who's who of the world of sports and entertainment in business in whatever are in this room and he comes. Floating in any literally was i. Almost saw was three to four inches off the ground as he comes floating in and that's the best of the best of the best of people that are there and in their respective fields sports or whatever else said entertainment business and everybody was just our jaws. Rav the floor when you walk in the morning and also just watching and seeing them to see the way conducted himself. I was just blown away but was the first time. And then i remember when the the the other at times during lockdown in four or five and we didn't play and i ended up when in denver. And i remember. We were air jordan ethic twentieth or twenty fifth anniversary party at the time. Twenty minute twenty. Th anniversary party And to that end. We're literally the restroom at urinals and there's a gentleman a fan that's foot is sticking out of the ceiling tile literally sticking out of the ceiling tile trying to break into this party because george barrel put because it's jordan dr j. the letter. They're right. I am this guy trying to sneak in through the roof thirty to literally run into the bathroom and kept pushing this guys like back up to the so i just. It's just a crazy to be able to experience something like that again in two two seat to be around him to see how he how he conducted salt. It was amazing. It was just a masterclass was so pumped to know the last dance is out. Yeah and be able to see what other people didn't see or able to see just by way of not having that access data again was a master class. That's like saying you had a ten part series on a castle starring castle on beethoven starring. Beethoven do you it namely yeah. Yeah it's just that rare to be able to capture that while he's living and he still living now to be able to talk to us. Is there anybody in hockey. You can do that with would be as enlightening is that was. I mean i would be the obvious answer. I just wanted you sit there and go. It was so powerful to end There's been so much written about him in coverage into still learned. That much was mind blowing to me. I don't know with amazing. Yeah that's awesome and especially because they have a great relationship those two and for what they've done respectively for you know for basketball are sports. Yet hockey jerrell a history ables works and how they've been able to transcend them in terms of their respective impacts and as it would have been amazing. Merrill would have been awesome too because mary was a little bit more standoffish during his playing days. If you will a little more guarded but in today's game out love to see it. He said i'd love to see if he said i think fans would see different than scientists said that they didn't know existed. And you know. I can say based on my relationship with sid been able to see not as much in the flesh day to day but just by way of some bar our conversations about talking about life in citizen on unbelievable cap'n and he s people don't just the way he can. He does everything right not to say that he's making mistakes right. And that's something that i want to really clarify for long listeners or viewers because there's nobody that there's no one there's no there's no company there's no there's no business persons no athletes. There's no anything that gesture without make mistakes along the way on. What i don't understand is why you know a lot of times when people do make mistakes. Try to vilify him and they they'll hang on to that over and over and over that on my own in my own professional life. I've seen that with people before But all that to say. I think it would be awesome. He's one of the best players in the history of the store and for fans to be able to see him what he does. Day to day conducts itself. Same thing is committed to his craft. Yeah all little nuances. How treats people how it relates with people the saints. He does for people how you interact with teammates all different things i think with especially when you hear people they boo. They boosted opposing teams. Or whatever right People would see city cross me in a whole different context for sure. I hope he does it. I hope that you know. Since he's a fairly private guarded person right so it takes is a willingness to open up in. He's always been very conscious of you. Know he's he's known since he was a kid that anything he says it's magnified right by 10x so so to open up like that while you're planning i think is hard right. You know it's it's almost have to wait till he's done in his place. Res commune That's a great point. I was a star I think the biggest thing is doing it was somebody that you trust. Yeah because you know. Unfortunately some people that i don't know if they were raised this way or they have siblings in their family or their social group and people like that's just never a good look no because it doesn't show any sense of self confidence or any self worth or any sense of internal belief if you're always looking to play pen to tell donkey with people and especially to the point where sometimes people manufacture that which i've seen personally to. It's just a terrible look. You know what. I mean so for sid and afraid the other player. It would really have to be with with somebody that they really trust. They know is not trying to burn them that they knows. Not trying to needlessly sensationalize something and that they know very pure in england. Frankly you've been in the business game laupheim well on this side business and this is something that i knew as a player. There were certain media people on the circuit. That i would see that i absolutely loved iran joy to see you know there are positive objective. They were fair. They were decent professional. Their intentions were clean and there were joy to see it after practice. Pregame states in the building wherever the case may be at home on the road and then there were others where it wasn't even it wasn't even really implicit. It was just kind of explicit. That they have their daggers out. In you knew that they were looking all time and if there was nothing there. There would manufacture something you can share it with listeners. Remember there was one writer in philly. Is one media person in philly that said at the time was playing for carolina. In said i'm paraphrasing. If kevin we strikes nasty martin. We know that there's a problem with hockey. We know that salaries are too high.

E3 2021's Live Event Has Been Cancelled According to LA City Documents
"Eight three twenty. Twenty one's live event has been cancelled according to the la city documents. This is an interesting one. I'm pulling from adam. Bankers agian according to los angeles city documents e. Three twenty twenty. One fiscal event has officially been cancelled as spotted by a new report published by the board of los angeles convention and tourism development commission. States that the three twenty twenty one live event is cancelled and that the city is working with the production team on broadcast options at l. e. live slash. La convention center furthermore is working with the espn licenses for both twenty twenty. Two and twenty twenty three. This follows as confirmation that e three twenty twenty one would still be happening and that the would be transforming the e three experience for twenty twenty. One we can't confirm we are transforming the e three experience for twenty twenty one and we'll soon share exact details and how we're bringing the global video game community together. Tim this one comes off of about a month ago. Got a report from vga and they talked about how they had. They had reports of either working low form of e three take place across multiple days where they were gonna go digital And this is something that hasn't necessarily publicly talked about yet. They haven't publicly announced this. But now we're getting confirmation from the essay that it seems like e three at the very least will not be held physically at the convention center. Tim what is your take on this. I think this is one of those things. That's very surprising especially given where the world's at right now that we're not going to have a physical e three but i don't think the headline here's a little bit misleading. Where he threw twenty two hundred live. Event has been canceled canceled because it was ever announced. So it's just one of those things where it's like this is coming from the la city documents or whatever. I imagine that the plan going into this year was never for three to have. Its live component at l. Acc and. i'm sure this is all just like back in legal staff of they've had that spot every year for so long or at least most years so i'm sure that was part of their like first writers refusal type thing Do you guys want to take this or not. But that's it was always going to be. No because i imagine based on what we heard couple months ago. Esa's planning digital event. I very much think that is the case. That's what we will see here and talking about the quote here of their working with the production team broadcast options. Ellie live in l. c. c. Like that's that totally makes sense to me like even if it's a digital event they still need production facilities and they've always had production facilities at those different places that are within a block and a half radius each other so i'm not surprised by this at all. I honestly don't think it's a bad thing either like the world's not ready to go back to live conventions so why even worry about
"one writer" Discussed on KCRW
"One writer who saw me when I say me? I do mean me, but I also mean people like me to me is a muse. Mike, can you talk a little bit more about this Syriza of plays of people for people who aren't familiar with his work? What was he trying to do? With with by creating a play for each decade of the black experience in the 20th century. I mean, I think he was just trying to give a glimpse into each decade of what it was like when it looked like and felt like toe maneuver. The world is a person of color in a person that's marginalized. In each different play kind of spoke to the times and the progression or lack thereof that existed But it always gave us something that was kind of like a bell tower for what it was like. To kind of live in those times and George. Oh, how did you first hear about this competition that is very lucky to go to school in downtown near the Mark Taper. Which is where they hold the L A regionals. So I first heard about the competition when a couple of people Then a couple years above me in high school had On the competition. You know, I I was asked to come and I was invited and I was blown away. You know, I talk about there being a presence in that room. I can't explain to this day, but it was powerful. And I remember telling myself that the following year I was going to audition. And you were sitting at the Ramon C. Cortines School, a visual and performing arts in L, A. And in the in the drama Program there? Yes, I was. And so had you had a lot of training before you decided to enter the competition. I did not have very much serious training. I grew up. You know, in south L A and Um, I joined one of my teachers. When I was in first grade asked me to join, you know this theater program that was right down the street. And so I joined that. And at the beginning, it was kind of just like an after school program that my parents would drop me off at and you know why. That's when I really was introduced the theater, But I don't think it wasn't too high school and really, until the artist was among our competition. Did I really, you know, see myself doing this as a living and seeing myself seeing that, you know, real power, the theater Do you think that really immersing yourself? In August Wilson's work and in his Characters and the characters. Studies did that change the way that you Look at the world outside of the theater, like Do you look at people differently? No, absolutely I when I began the others wholesome monologue competition. I always say that walking out of the competition I learned so much not only from August Wilson, but the character that he wrote. From King Hedley. The second he taught me that. You know that I'm worthy and I'm capable of anything that I set my mind to and that I don't have to reach that word for anyone's approval. I don't have to reach outward. You know, for someone to look at me and tell me that I'm worthy because I have it. All of it. I have all of it inside of me. And the way that August, Wilson wrote. These characters he wrote about, you know, everyday people that we don't normally get to here. Especially in the media and his work really values. You know the beauty in those lives you know from from fences, for example, he wrote about the garbage truck, man, you know, and some people can look at him and look the other way. But after reading August Wilson after doing this competition, I can look at him and say Wow, No, that's beautiful. That's honorable, you know, and that's a story worth being told. I want to also play another clip of you. And this is where you are actually performing your monologue, and it's from King Hedley. And, uh, This play was written I think this is about the Reagan era. Right? So this would be the eighties. I'm not sure exactly when he wrote it. But here here is you performing a part of your monologue If a burglar broke into a white man's house to steal his TV and the white man shoot him, they don't say he wrong. Alone understand that.

The VW Beetle: An Evil Origin Story
"Germany was looking for a true people's car literally translated as Volkswagen in one thousand nine hundred. Thirty one. One writer from DOS volks auto basically summed up the struggle for making people's those car perfectly quotes the van and be too heavy into expensive to produce the Hausa ill-suited in traffic an unstable in purpose but is needed is a car. Awed designed for the street offering maximum comfort but a minimum of luxury Ferdinand. Porsche realized this as well and at the age of fifty five decided to open a business himself an attempt to accomplish such a monumental task. He assembled a team of the best German. Speaking designers engineers an opened his own company in Stuttgart Germany while he didn't have much capital. He was globally known as an automotive genius so he was able to accomplish this with clouds alone own. GotTa have that clout. Yeah cloud is basically my number one currency. Yeah I think I can speak for everyone in this room. We wouldn't be where we are today without without our cloud for your appearance on two broke girls channel wouldn't exist. It does get a little though. 'cause I remember last week went to lunch and I covered you you and I was like hey. Can you hear me like thirteen dollars. Like I haven't paid for a meal since one thousand nine Hundred Ninety six on April Twenty Fifth Nineteen thirty one the company. I entered the official registry as the doctor Professor Porsche Company for the Assembly consultation and design of automobiles wheels and engines. We've wanted to call Dr Pepper but that's hardly taken. Ferdinand Porsche had made a name for himself in racing. The creation of a people's car was always a personal passion of his. It wasn't long until Porsche began drawing up designs for the first Volkswagen in nineteen thirty. He Won. He was commissioned by Private Motorcycle Company and began working on the project twelve motorcycle sales are going down and this company wanted to diversify hi there portfolio a little bit product. Twelve was the first project ever for Porsche. That was neither a small luxury wagon or a small racing car designs immediately we took on the familiar beetle-shaped and it was powered by five cylinder. One thousand. CC radial engine. That may twenty five horsepower. Radial engine like like like an airplane. Like an airplane yeah the first prototypes were road. Tested in nineteen thirty two. Despite the cars functionality the company that hired Porsche Chak cancelled the contract. As motorcycle. Sales had begin to pick up again in the entire endeavor just like they broke up with their long-term. Yeah way friend and Porsche was like finally you know we're going to get to be together and they're like. Oh Yeah Yeah. Yeah it's always been you then and turns out Dave's back. Oh cool no good for you guys so happy for you know all right so that whole thing was okay for Porsche the motorcycle manufacturer. Ns you another company immediately. swooped in to take their place at the time. Germany held the largest motorcycle market in the world but people wanted cars and Msu that they begin flirting with the idea of building true through automobiles it's crazy that Nebraska State University started out as a motorcycle manufacturer in Germany. It's incredible and then we can. It makes much more money in academia. This new project was dubbed project. Thirty two as it began in the year. Nineteen thirty two a pattern was beginning to form though and ns you started to stay purely in the motorcycle market and bailed on the project the factor. Ns you pulled out. Didn't hinder porsches spirits. It's though he seemed like a pretty a Kinda Guy Project thirty two had allowed him to alternate innovate his previous designs. Bring him one step closer to the future Volkswagen and he had been dreaming of and just a year and a half working for himself he already. He had already made more progress on designing his dream. People's car then he had made in the previous ten so overall he was pretty stoked meanwhile on February eleventh nineteen thirty three less than two weeks after coming to office Chancellor Adolf off Hitler did something no other German chancellor had ever done he attended the Berlin auto show. It was no accident that the theme of the show that year was the will to motorization cassation which now that read it aloud. Sounds very forboding and evil. Okay so Hitler had a plan quote. The motor vehicle has become come next to the airplane. One of humanity's most ingenious means of transportation the German nation can be proud and knowing is played a major part in the design and development of of this great instrument he immediately punctuated that remark by saying that Germany had fallen behind in the market. And now of course his time to fix it was actually at this auto show that one. Joseph Dan's appeared with his own prototype. Volkswagen the Standard Superior Ganz is especially unique in the story because his designs over the five years before the show helped influence both Ferdinand Porsche. And many others. With their attempted Volkswagen's Hitler himself expressed serious interest tryst in the prototype vehicle during the shell despite providing revolutionary designs contributed to all future. Volkswagen beetles just Ganz's name is almost completely absent from any history books. Due to his Jewish Heritage Ganz was arrested persecuted and forced to flee the country of Germany while his name was scrubbed from basically all records and was forbidden from being associated with the term Volkswagen altogether so porsche basically stole the design at the following auto show one year later. Hitler announced two major policies that would be enacted immediately. He called for the mass construction of roads and and highways as well as for car to be built that can finally be owned and driven by the common man quote. No country can be strong transportation as week to help push forward his dream of a mobilized Germany he promised tax relief for auto companies more money for racing more resources for motoring events less interference from state governments on the ownership ownership and production of cars. Course this was not just for the People's benefit but for militancy. Yes now this this is what kicked are like the. US's highway system into high gear to they're like. Oh we need to get you know missiles across the country chief we need to an arson. Attack on the Reichstag allowed Hitler to make a sweeping power grab. He officially made himself Germany's fuhrer he. Hurried hurried changes and transportation and pass the rash automotive law in the summer of nineteen thirty three removing German states of any responsibilities concerning the ownership and and production of automobiles and soon after the construction of the first autobahn began. So he's the site. I'm a dictator. Yeah Yeah it's like turns out. Yeah I'm king to again public support. The idea of national progress was tied directly to the innovation in transportation. It's hard to understand. Just how big the Autobahn project was. But the pure scale of road. Construction was unprecedented unprecedented at the time. Four thousand thirty four miles of road was planned for construction over the next seven years but like so many characteristics characteristics of the Nazi party it was the idea that mattered. Most the Nazi spoke with these roads. As M- court monuments in fact one announcement titled Not Roads But Works Works of art read quote. Nothing is to cramp or delay you in your swing from one horizon. To the other the highways will spark like stone an artfully rot. Ring ring the construction of these roads was essential for Nazis to gain the power. They wanted but they needed the public support behind. We'll be right back with more of this story. Okay but I learned from our sponsors. It should be obvious that the roads were really intended for an advantage during wartime but people were too busy Z.. To really think about that for a while Germany was actually looking really nice as long as he didn't look any deeper than the surface level. Surprisingly of all Hitler's rhetoric. The Volkswagen was the one that carmakers feared the most they all loved the idea of mass producing a car that literally everyone will want to buy or even better working with the governments to enforce the necessity to buy them after all who doesn't love being both supply and demand but they wanted the cars they mass-produced to be cheap like a three wheeled covered in motorcycle or something. Truly cheap manufacturers hated the idea of building a car just as good as the upper level cars for the price of an entry level car they wanted to make money and Hitler's Volkswagen plan left no room for people to even need to purchase high end models. Not only did they think selling a good car. So cheap was texting technologically logically impossible. They also feared the long term impact of direct government involvement in the automotive
David Rabe Reads John Updike
"High David so I know some other ideas came up but updike was pretty much the first writer you thought of Reading for the PODCAST. Why was that He's been he's sort of been in my mind for. Since I started writing or thought about writings he he was always meaningful to me. And then there's a period of time where I stopped reading him. I just willfully stop because I felt like it was the only way to right the way he just doing it and so I just stopped I can remember talking to friends and I would kind of even develop some harsh opinions of of him that were really authentic on some level right based on just the need to Kinda separate. What for you is at the heart of his appeal Yeah I mean it's funny way. We we have you know. There's kind of a cross of backgrounds in a way. I think I just trip. I remember like he wasn't that much older than me. When I was in college? He was being published regularly New Yorker and everybody Where I was living at the time? I'm in college. You know who was interested in writing was very attuned to the New Yorker and he was published very young. I'm not sure what he started in the New Yorker in his early twenties. Yeah so you felt well. It's possible he's done it so that's sort of. It's been part of my brain for a long time. I think his these inhabited part of it for a long time and at that point in college. Were you thinking of writing fiction and not place. Yeah Yeah I started the whole creative. Things started wanting to be an actor. I thought then the college I went to didn't have a theater department but but we had a a professor teacher priests teacher who is really very good and you is a published poet which was significant to us but he had a class so I was in for like three years and it was all prose or poetry and the first story. You thought of reading was Updike's the sandstone farmhouse which was too long to read on on the podcast. What made you pick the other side of the street? I heard that similar in a way in in terms of the territory and It's it's a smaller version of similar work. I think but that hallway. He can mash the present with the past and keep it very alive and not seem forced to. It's just something that I admire and do you. I think the other side of the street is is very characteristic of updike or is it more off the beaten path for him I think it's characteristic in a way but it's kind kind of off the beaten path in its small us in its But he does that very well. So that's the that was why I picked it really right. Well we'll talk some more after the story free and now here's David Rabe reading the other side of the street by John. Updike the other side of the street for that. His lawyer told Faucet you need a notary public in this state. They're the ones who handle car title. Changes Faucet hadn't lived in his home state for forty years and only his mother's death had brought him back. He was taking possession of his meager inheritance inheritance cleaning out her sad cramped apartment. He lived far to the west and the climate and vegetation and even the quality of light light here in. Pennsylvania seemed strange. The afternoon light was dying in the windows. The Leaf is trees in the courtyard below. Where sinking into a well of darkness s with a silvery November glitter as if after an ice storm Leeming on their upper twigs? He looked in the phone book under Notary Republics and one listed at two six two Chestnut Street Hayes. Ville leap to his I a woman. Georgina are Mueller. She answered the phone and sounded excessively cheerful and helpful but perhaps that was just the regional manner which he had slowly lost. He suggested that ladies it was their the transaction must wait until tomorrow but she told him going that extra mile with him the way people in Pennsylvania did no. I'm open here until L. A.. Lot of people you know can't get to you except in the evenings you'll need the car title the Insurance Card Your own driver's license and what we call the short certificate it'll say short certificate letters testamentary across the top. Yes I they have those. My lawyer gave me plenty. Now let me tell you how to find my house. You come out the afraid Pike. I Know Faucet Taller I used to live across the street at two sixty one did you though. What did you say your name was? He told her but it rang. Nobel was a longtime ago. He apologized just after the war. I was a child. We moved away when I was twelve. Is that a fact. Well it's still a house to be proud of Brubaker. Sold it you know. This name meant nothing to him.

J. yeah it's hard for people I think your your condition as an investor when you're younger to be a little more aggressive and watch the big swings it's great when the market goes up big time it's tough to watch it go down in and you take that hit but as you get older she when the news is good on Wall Street you go to your thing is on your app you looking go all I didn't make any money today that's because you're not taking the risks of the highs are lower but the lows aren't as bad yeah I think you were able group point even if you know your Coleman ball starts right anytime would take some forced off the table then in those big banner years you're gonna look back in hindsight twenty twenty at which you're a little bit more exposed but you know the most retirees or people close to retirement missing a little bit on the outside does not change impact their retirement but if you lose you know twenty thirty forty percent like we did in two thousand eight either right before retirement and first decade of retirements much more impactful image of some of the upstarts Tony for younger investors you know a thirty year old who's got thirty five thousand dollars with a college loans and is driving a used car and renting you know paying rent of thirteen hundred Bucks a month how how are they supposed to save money yeah that's always the top one writer but the most rewarding part you can really buckle down and look at that that most of us have something in our lifestyle this probably costing a little bit more than we think this can be a great time of year if you got a raise or bonus you're used to live on without that that's a great opportunity use that money either side of your mortgage you find knock outs and that or holds weird creature savings towards retirement so it's pretty tough to find someone that cannot be able to do something in a special if Europe starting somewhere that time value of money just getting that money really blown forty over time makes a big big Tony I think a lot of is just as simple as taking advantage what your employer offers to anything back again to when I was young and but yeah I didn't take advantage of that stuff when I should have as early as I could have because that was just something that wasn't top of mind to me but if you take advantage now that compounding sure it's up here in a lot of those of that match your former employer it's free money you're not gonna get free money a lot of places in life and you know there's some new contestants if you look at some other countries that you know automatically put employees and to invest money up to opt out of savings rates are much higher in our in our country for the most part got dropped and she told me I know that it's different for everyone everyone's life style is different they want to do different things in retirement but I saw something that said that if you don't have a million dollars saved you're not gonna make it yeah I think those numbers are really cancellations and they sound good in your great headlines and in very so much first for so many folks a lot of it just depends on what you're spending what your income sources are pure someone not many of us out there anymore but if you're someone who's working not to have a pension that big number may not be quite as important so I think it comes down to more understanding what you're going to spend having a plan accounting for inflation and taking a look at some of those things in retirement also some big changes in retirees with this new bill that passed at the end of the year Tony we had three said the interest rate cuts in the past your are we going to get anymore in twenty twenty no corner ten minutes now to look like they're gonna accountable but mark your from this year which is great they're not anticipating a rising during Christmas that can help of course change of taxonomic gala but it looks like you're going to kind of hold tight there and I can it's a good thing for investors over the market and it's a political year too so twenty twenty should be interesting in that regard yeah politics definitely make a big difference we also saw a big change in our federal bill something called secure act retirees now don't have to take required minimum distributions tell seventy two used to be seven and I have seen that their retirement money you brought up to you well one tax deferred a little bit longer but we can no longer structural diaries beneficiaries have to take it out over ten years he is the namesake Tony drink from drinking associates on WTMJ Tony thank you so much happy new year thank you very
Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe Preview & Best Bets for Paris Longchamp
"The dulcet tones of John Hunter who will be joining us on the final broadcast in the near future one of a number of new voices who will be appearing on the show in the coming months we're also gearing up for national hunt podcasts as well by the way of jumps fans. You can get excited about that but you can't not get excited about the ARC. It'll be live on sky sports racing at five past three assuming the French actually the out of the race to the correct time it's her second time running para longchamp and she bids to make history as John said in that fantastic Promo but become the first horse to win three in a row rick see. She is the queen of the turf. If she wins this race the publicity alone will be invaluable but in your mind as we look at this from from a pure punting perspective. What's your thoughts on the Ark currently look. I think the the market is near. The TAUPE is pretty accurate. We're able enabled his concern. Look she's odds-on she. She deserves to be outs on she. She is the these the the most likely winner but look I think in terms of a bash what I'd be doing in this race is probably taking her out of the equation and I'm playing a horse in the without Marcus at the moment which were recording on Thursday at the ground is soft at Longchamp and Dan. I don't think it's GonNa get too much quicker. I'd say the quickest it's GonNa get as is good ground for me that means. I'm just just tended to stay away from south staff. He would it be in the bed. I think for me without enable if the ground was good too farmer that but I just I'm not sure your he's going to be as good on this kind of ground. The price differential between Japan and the two to three older horses magical Michael Guy Eighth and wild is is colossal in my eyes vile cost in terms of pure ability alone. I think he can get eighty into one. They're about what is his chance. This is a proper made one twenty s horses east coming here on the back of lobby prepped eh before that were common here in the back of a career-best bind enabling the King George. I just worry about the ground for him. So we're concerned. I'm wondering the belt him balancing which I think peace can tell us more but I think the balances is a real American term. Suggest is a horse comes comes back after a long lay-off through injury or a setback and then runs a massive race and has a career based and that's exactly what gifted Abadan Badin Adin when he won the race out there a few weeks ago I just wonder will he be at the same level again and after all that then the more solid horse for me and at the prices is magical and I think magical is the best without without enable look she. We know in four star start against the neighbors. She hasn't beaten are but to collect the bet here. We can finish second to her again so that that's that's where I'm GONNA go. I think magical without is the is the date the most solid play in this race as a former ballydoyle employees all this talk on social media but how magical is not going to run in the ARC. She's she's. She's not going to run their because look at bet fair. Look at the prices. She is the not going to run. The exchange prices for ballydoyle horses are completely and totally totally useless. It's about as useful as a MARZIPAN DILDO. It's no guide wants so ever as to whether or not a horse is actually going to line up in erase the lads make decisions at the last minute but also Aidan O'Brien had state categorically that after she won the champagne stakes yet the planning planning the arc unless something changes exactly so I don't get it. I'm not trying to be a smart ass here by the way but like you could take advantage of of a massive price about her. During the week you still can to a certain extent it. Just it's beer baffles me. You need to put that in perspective as well. It's a win only market and and she's being beaten four times by the favorite so you know and people on bed fair whatever you know have a lot of money they can have strong opinions and put those kind of racism altern. That's probably what they were doing what they were doing Bush. The first mistake you may day or Kennedy is listening to people on social media and thank you you to all of our listeners who interact with us and say very kinds of Roy. Moore's not the number one writer about Eliezer. Don't you know so according to social media. I thought yeah look she's being. She's being declared for the race. I don't think unless you suggest they are less went wrong. She had a setback. She was always going to run here that would that was. I think aiden has been saying that since the start of the season the main the main goal at the second part of their campaign was the act can talk now she's here and they wanted an awesome campaign for that's what she was always being aimed for and and here she goes he says having b-actor at a big price price selfishly and then was being made to panic with all this talk on twitter about the fact that she wasn't. GonNa run screw you people. You had me panicking. She's going to get possibly ably thrashed by enable but Vanessa before we started recording this podcast you were doing in-depth analysis by yourself with no help from anybody else about the he drove bias at Longchamp so take us through that because the draw has come through enable is entrapped nine. Japan comes out of ten so tests comes out of one. There's a lot of talk from various different pundits and experts about the positives and negatives about this so your view on the draw for the leading leading contenders in the ARC. Yeah we'll just this sort of before we so tipoff any horse or anything just to really paint a picture of how this race is likely to unfold obviously chaos plays a huge huge pot and whether enable wins a third arc because what does will directly affect what Frankie has to do the neighbor and has had the worst possible. Essentially he is drawn on the wide outside. Install twelve and sought Saas is is drawn on the inside install one which is also the worst case possible for him so for both of those two leading challenges to enable they have the worst case draw immune while enable frankie perfectly happy android nine magical. Giovanni the side. That'll be absolutely fine salsas. Obviously we'll watch him. Draw aw back and he'll be called on the rail. We've seen him be stuck in traffic issues before that's going to be a huge problem for him. A meanwhile gear is going to have to use up a whole load of energy. Komo stole twelve gets the front and get across to lead which is what we know. He's GonNa try and do so that is a massive negative for him because he's used up valuable petrol and the tank just get to the front and soft light. Hughes who saw sausage pace bank has a much better drawer said he'll also be going into the front gate has overcome all these hurdles that's even before the races properly properly got going meanwhile enable will be dropped him probably a couple of off the rail hacking along with Frank. Here's we know and sought SAS is probably GonNa be dropped out and like I say have to come the traffic issues now one of the things just this also of note here is that Sea of claws last year essentially teed up what we are going to witness on Sunday which is of the CNA Guca because last year we all night with a little bit last traffic problems and having got rocking rolling a little earlier sea of claws house could easily have beaten enable. Now we know all the facts we know that enables eight seven eight five cents fit comes here this year much but a form Yada Yada Yada fought without and outside of class last year meeting that traffic and having to overcome many at the hurdles that sought size is going to have to come she. She essentially set the blueprint trip for how you beat enable yes. She didn't but she sat how you do it. If that makes sense because she with another stride she would've got there as we all know. There's no denying line not so. C- classes now laid down the blueprint about how to be enabled. We look salt. SAS who takes loads of the boxes but see of class loss yeah. He's a progressive three year old. He comes here off. The back of impressive wins. All season 'cause recco times. Yes that Glen I tait. You'll know about the ground that is touch concerning but essentially he's got a very similar profile. Obviously gets the way to allowance from enable as well. Now's how's cools. He's GonNa have to step up massively and he's going to have to overcome that draw the traffic problems but sought sizes connections will be looking at last year's his race and we'll be looking at cf class and we'll be learning from that and we'll be taking from that and working out a way to not get in the soda trouble Chic and because because that following that blueprint is going to be the best way to beat Santa Claus assaults us me while I think yet in a worst case scenario draw for both I mean what what connections of gas and salt sauce with due to swap the drawer they give a million for that because it would it be an ideal the other way around but they have like gauze played around and they've had an absolute shocker both of them gas is I'm with you. Declan worried a bit about about the bounce also obviously the former that German race you couldn't take away by how visually impressive it is it will aw and as they turn into the straight I imagine gas to be about four lengths in front enabled to be heading up the leading pack. Franchi will be sat is cool waiting to press the button gas will start coming back to them and frankie will press go butter and with a furlong to go the stands will erupt will -rupt it'll be wonderful for all of about six seconds and then the petrol gains will start to flicker enable. Hey Bill will suddenly not like winning quite such impressive fashion and out the back. Salt Saas will come with Ratto accuracy of cross but he went eh this time.
Hurting Harley Broaches $1.6 Billion Turnaround Plan
"Uh from wondering I'm David Brown and this is business worse daily on this Thursday October third when you think of have motorcycles which brand POPs to mind it could be the one time king of the Hill Harley Davidson but that's more likely if you're obvious certain age for the past several years. Here's the muscle bound. Company has been fighting for the industry leadership at once took nearly for granted upstarts like it's revived former rival. Indian have been looming larger Juryman harleys rear view Mirrors Harley sales and profits have been sinking for the last five years and this quarter has been one of its worst with sales dropping almost eight and a half percent compared to a year ago last week. The company announced an aggressive expensive turnaround plan called more roads Harley Davidson it it intends to spend one point six billion dollars over the next four years to expand not only its own customer base but motorcycle riding in general it. Lynch produce new products especially its fleet of electric vehicles led by the livewire expand access around the globe build new smaller urban dealerships and create experiences experiences intended to introduce kids and young adults to the joys of writing ultimately Harley promises the more roads plan will increase harleys tribe from its existing assisting three million riders to four but analysts are quick to label the turnaround plan a tough uphill climb. The company blames its problems on a soft market for motorcycles and indeed. Americans bought three hundred seventy thousand motorcycles in two thousand sixteen. That's only half as many as they had ten years earlier. millennials especially city-dwellers don't seem to be buying bikes especially those big heavy touring bikes that made Harley famous some blame the downturn on ridesharing which reduces the need to own transportation and of course there are those hefty school loans which shrink household budgets but some of hardy's troubles are frankly harleys or lease alone. The company's existing ridership is aging and younger riders. Just aren't filling in the gaps. It's new livewire. Electric bike starts at thirty thousand dollars hours as one writer pointed out almost the cost of low in Tesla early this year we pointed out that Harley is on a high wire a tricky balancing act between keeping its existing existing customers happy while trying to attract new younger writers and impress investors who think electric bikes the industry's future so far. Harley has not shown shown that it can navigate that delicate tightrope furthermore those shrinking motorcycle market isn't affecting all companies equally if as CNBC claimed aimed late last year millennials are killing motorcycles. We'll what about Harley's rival Indian wouldn't they be suffering too with the help of the newly launched. FDR Twelve hundred motorcycle asleep bike style like a flat track racer. Indians motorcycle sales grew fifteen percent of its second quarter to two hundred million million dollars. It's prophets also rose by two million that suggests Indian which is owned by Polaris Industries is doing a better job than Harley creating relevant well-priced well priced products the FDR twelve hundred retails for only thirteen to sixteen thousand dollars a far cry from some of Harleys gasp worthy list prices prices still it remains to be seen whether Hardee's big plan to expand the market could work over time the company that's been in business indeed as an American an icon since nineteen zero three as no slouch but it may take all the muscle harleys God along with a boatload of patience and and maybe you turn on those prices turn things around wondering this Business Business Wars Daily today is episode number two hundred and ninety nine curious about the history of Harley Davidson Checkout are seven part series Harley Biker Acura sits on our sister.

Where are musicians making money
"Ninety nine was a peak year for the music industry with sales reaching fourteen point six billion dollars in the US. And then, you know, the story Napster happened I tunes happened and the CD store died twenty years later. The music business is back to, quote one writer it's back like a zombie prime to devour the world on a massive scale because of streaming services, some projection show that music, revenue may soon surpass the benchmark set in the late nineties, here's pitchforks, senior, staff writer, Marc HOGAN, basically, your for years and years as has been widely publicized, the industry was doing really badly. But now has been finally growing again recently, thanks to the expected growth from a streaming. Goldman Sachs says forty one billion dollars annually by twenty thirty. Right. I mean, unless bear in mind that Leeman brothers in nineteen ninety nine also. Had these really rosy upbeat predictions for industry and the industry crashed and then leading others is now gone. So these, these predictions should all be taken with a grain of salt, but people seem to expect the industry to be healthy again. So that's the labels how Spotify doing Spotify. They keep growing. They have more and more users, they're expected to keep growing around the world, the revenues are pretty big, but they generally lose money. So Spotify struggling to turn all of these users into actual profits in your article, you do really great breakdown of where the revenue goes. So break it down for sure. Well, according to deutchebanks report, the earlier this year, for everyone hundred dollars consumer spending on CDs or vinyl of the labels profit is eight dollars for every one hundred dollars spent on down those on, I tunes, that's nine dollars. And for every one hundred dollars spent on streaming the labels profit is. Thirteen dollars. So the share that goes, the labels is actually bigger under your streaming than it was under the old physical formats, is that simply because of logistics cost of production. They don't have to make a thing cutting out the middleman. Yes, exactly, where's the rest of the money, go to well, I think, for musician it varies based on what they're deal is what I found the more people I talked with is just it really depends. And it's it's difficult to come up with a single simple number for what -sition gets now. Let's talk about musicians. How is this boom affecting, you know, the people who are actually, making the music the way, the boom, seems to be musicians is similar to what we're seeing across the economy, really where the upper echelon Hughes doing better and better, and the middle income, and lower income is issues are not doing this. Well, I talked to one you leibel head who said that the middle class for musicians has dried up. That's not really there anymore. What's the average musician making no days? Well, according to one survey, it was around. Around thirty five thousand dollars in two thousand seventeen but only about twenty one thousand three hundred dollars that came from activity related to music. So that's live gigs that streams merge live for the most common source of income. So these are professional musicians, who are not able to make a living doing music. Exactly. Yeah. I mean, that's kind of what we're seeing is getting harder and harder for the vast majority of people who actually make music to make living on the other hand, though.

"Best best friends Takata butter knife before school started and started trying to cut his grapefruit the same way he did every morning when we were at other school in Jackson and long story short, you know, the teacher eventually told them, put the knife away, cheated the knife as if it was a gun. We both got kicked out of school that day. We got whipped by our mothers and by grandmothers and that situation. I learned that some. Times often MR communities. It was black mothers primarily who had to discipline their children for the failures of their teachers. And so my mother would always say, you know, you have to fly, right? You don't give them a chance. But I'm saying as a fifteen year old, I said, I'm not sure what not giving them a chance. Looks like eating a grapefruit, got us in trouble just now you didn't do anything. We got in trouble later. I would take a library book out of the library without checking it out that got in trouble. So I just wasn't sure about this this theory, my mama had the, you know, you can duck them, you can dodge them if you just -ticipant every move. And again, anticipation is crucial. But what happens to the home life when you spend your entire life outside of the home and his opinion, white supremacy and white power doing you in. That's the question. I'm trying to ask in this section and also in the entire book. What did happen with your home life particularly with with you and your mom is you were trying to grapple with these things? She was telling you or the way of the world and you were trying to under. Stand them. How did that affect your relationship with her one way? I think a lot of just traditionally American things happen. I started to be resentful that my mother was telling me thank some things that were right. Some things that were wrong. She started to be a lot more active in trying to police me as my body grew, and I started to have lots and lots of run ins with cops are starting to get kicked out of school more and we could talk about those things sorted. We could talk about police. We could talk about why people, but we couldn't talk about with things like sexual violence. So we couldn't talk about was like domestic abuse. She was in an abusive relationship. I saw that relationship. I reacted to that relationship. I try to fight and protective net relationship, but I would never talk to her about that fight in their protection. She saw me and relationships that were like difficult for me where I was being bad to myself where I was mistreating people emotionally. We didn't know how to talk about any of it. So, wow, we're doing really good sort of talking about how we survive outside of the house, the particular kinds of violence that were happening. In my house were completely silent. We never knew how to talk about it. And so you know, it took me until I was like forty two forty one years old to have the guts to actually right into someone what was happening in our house and try to connect that to what was happening outside of our house. I want to talk more about your literary style, but I did want to point out one other aspect of the anecdote. You just read where the officer looked at you and said, who is that? Is that your man? There's also this through line about people presuming that black boys are older than they are. It was a factor in the shooting of Tamir rice. The young man who was shot dead in Cleveland, Ohio, back in November of twenty. Fourteen to MIR was playing with a toy gun. He was twelve years old. Someone reported, there's a man in the park with a gun police officers pulled up and and video of the scene shows that one of the officers opened fire onto Mirai before his squad car had fully stopped. There was still some momentum in the vehicle and one of the through lines after the shooting was at the off. Fisher who killed Tamir. Rice said he believed that the twelve year old was in fact an adult. So that's another just based on his appearance..

You eventually showed the second officer your license and your university of Maryland d officer looked at the ID, flipped it over and told us to have a good night. Never give them a chance to take a shot. You finally said, after we walked in the apartment and locked the door, they will take it. They will take it. They will take a wondered why you said it three times. And while you never told me to shoot back Mississippi, Maryland, it doesn't matter where the where you are. They will shoot your black, but out of the sky, every chance they get. If you have a heart attack dodging bullets, they will hide their guns and say, you killed yourself. I hear you. I told you and try to make you laugh. Why didn't you just say, don't instead of does not or doesn't? And they instead of their, though, if I did not know, correct. English is more likely that officer might have shot us. You said? No, we wouldn't. I told you that full got mad because you were speaking correcting leash. You looked at me like you were thinking, you might actually be right key, but in the long run, correct. English will save a black man more than it will hurt. You will correct English, save Utah. I do not need saving. You said I am not the one who was an endangered species. I'm not either. I told you I'm an endangered species with a lot of gas and my stomach. I'll be right back. That cop gave me the bubble guts. You laughed and laughed and laughed until you didn't? While I was in my room changing. You told me to write about what I learned from the experience with the police. I wasn't sure what to write because I wasn't sure how to live life in a way that didn't give them a chance to shoot us out of the sky. It seemed like just driving or walking into a house or doing your job or cut in a grapefruit was all it took to get shot out of the sky. And the biggest problem was police weren't the only people doing the shooting. They were just the only people allowed to walk around and threaten us with guns in prison. If they didn't like our style of flying a loved our style of flying. Another excerpt from heavy by Kia, say, there is a lot going on to that expert. But I think one of the sentences from the last paragraph struck me where you right. I wasn't sure how to live life in a way that didn't give them a chance to shoot us out of the sky. Right. Is that kind of the crux of it? Yeah. I mean, that's a cross of a lot of the relationship are talked about in his book. My mother. I'm also talking about a situation where we went to add to go to a new school in eighth grade was the first time I've gone to school with white kids and a few, my best friends from my previous school with there.

"One app and wherever you listen to podcasts back now to our conversation with Kia, say Lehman, his new memoir is called heavy. Let's read one more excerpt from the book. This is about something that happened to you and your mother when you were younger, not real far from here in Maryland. It is on page eighty one. Would you mind reading from? It's about halfway down page Eighty-one the part two begins what we were half a mile from home to almost the end of page Eighty-three which ends with the word flying. Would you read that for us? Please? Sure. Eighty-one offers only okay. When we were half a mile from home, a Maryland police car stopped us just like when they stopped us a Mississippi. You sat up in your seat kept kept both hands on the wheel and look straight ahead. It's out your university of Maryland. I d and took my red black green African medallion into my public enemy t. shirt. You told me to sit up, keep my hands on the dashboard. Don't say a word, the officer knelt down and looked in your window when I saw your face. So close to his gun. I wanted to snatch it and watch it melt into black grits ever. Since police started approaching me more often in Mississippi, I wanted to superpower to melt every gun in the world and the black grits dolphins are asked why we had Mississippi licensed plays. Because we are residents objects, Mississippi. You said I have a postdoctoral appointment at the university of Maryland college park have done anything wrong officer when officer told you to speak up and claim you change lanes without signalling, you kept your grip on the steering wheel and said, I did not change lanes without signalling you sped up behind me. So signaled and change lanes. The officer tried to laugh in your face as he asks for your license registration. Is that your man, he asked.

"But when I'm also saying is as readily as we want to conversation about what black people don't need to be put in their bodies. I like to talk about what this nation has decided. We, as black bodies cannot have access to, and that is beyond that it's beyond food that has has so much to do with freedom now, so much to do with second chances. Right? And so I'm saying early on, I definitely want right. I would love to write a weight loss book about food and about unhealthy food about food desert which we need. We absolutely need, but also think my family needed this other kind of book that dealt with the weight of deception, weight of lies and how the weight of lies and deceptions are tied into the food that we put in our body the way the air that we breathe, the water that we drink and the relationships that we seek out. I'd love you to read another excerpt from the book, but before you do, let me get to another question from one of our listeners Andrea tweeted, can you. Elaborate on your distinction between truth and honesty and what drives you to the ladder in writing this? That's a great question. So I, I'm not my head is big, but I'm not as big headed enough to think that I know what truth is a think truth. We have trying to Trump thing, but there's so many different perceptions of truth, but I do know what an attempt at on his reckoning looks like. And I know what attempt at dishonest reckoning looks looks like. And I think we all do. I think when we're asked questions, some of us do know the answers to those questions. And sometimes we attempt to misdirect sometimes they attempt to misdirect survival. I think the sad thing about my family is that we attempted to misdirect people who actually could have helped us if we had attempted to write, honestly talk honestly into memory. And so when I'm trying to say is in his book, I'm not sure what the truth is, but I know what an honest attempt at recognize, and so I'm trying to write into direction of on his reckoning with the awareness that my destination or my truth is going to be different than my mother's a different than my grandmother's. But that doesn't mean that we all are not attempting to do. And honestly, if we come to a different answer, actually think we are doing it, right? Yeah. I think for me as a journalist, at least I was always taught that truth is that which corresponds to reality that which is actual. But honesty is about being forthright that you can tell a truth, but if it's a half truth, it's not honest. Absolutely. And there's a process, I think, honesty, definitely. I mean, especially right early honesty's is a process which requires a lot of revision right? And that in and of itself, some people might deem untruthful, right? Because you, you're writing a, you're racing your writing erasing. But I think revision is sort of necessary, for honest, attempts at finding out where we are, where we been, what happened, you talking the book about how your mother taught she to write about certain things that you are encouraged to do and not to do your mother admonished you against using contractions, don't won't can't rate why. I mean, the short answer to that question is that my mother just did not trust white supremacy. We grew up in Mississippi. She did not trust white supremacy. She did not trust the worst away people. She thought if I use contractions, if I did not verse myself in white literature that I would make myself more vulnerable, right. Same thing today I did a big reading yesterday. My mom was like, don't wear shorts where suit don't wear tennis shoes. Don't use contractions. So I think she grew up in the civil rights era where she really believed that respectability could save us..

"You don't mean like three hundred nineteen powerlifter pounds, like an obese, three nineteen to a spelt athletic cross fit Esq one sixty five. Is that right? Again, that's what I wanted to do. That's the book. So when I when I sold a book, I was three nineteen. I wanted to get down to. I mean, for me if I get down to one fifty five, I'm not felt at all. I'm I'm pretty Boney, but my head never changes, which is the weird thing. You know, I'm just a bobblehead to do. Yeah, you got like less body to hold up a big head. But yeah, it's so I wish I could lose weight in my head. I can't refund, but see, I had to grow my body into my head. He leaning over sideways and now much more balanced. But, but anyway, go ahead. Yeah. So I, I'm telling the audience in the readers that I wanted to write a conventional sort of weight loss book where start big end skinny and we can all rebel in all the things I had to give up to give small. But you know, I, I've been a hundred and sixty five pounds, not that long ago and I got there from just not eating from men, you know, not eating and exercising way too much. So I'm trying to let the reader know early on that. Like when I started this process, I wanted to invest holy in that conventional progress, weight loss narrative. But there's something not just dishonest in that there's something holy unhealthy about that. And so I'm saying from the from the jump as sort of in some way, it's it's an advisory, you know, like I'm letting everybody know. I'm kind of trying to write a book maybe read before, but I hadn't really read before and it's going to get a little messy and it might be a little hard to read, but that's what I needed in my family needed in our adventure to say, maybe lots of the nation might need this kind of book. And now I don't want to camp out too much on just the weight loss park because there's. Much more females of your book than that. But I, I, you do mention in the beginning of the book. Let me go back to that part. You talk a lot about, you know, our families, relationships too simple carbohydrates, deep fried meats and high fructose corn syrup. It feels very similar and I don't say this on a reductive way, but it feels similar to the critique of the movie soul food where were black culture through food is an emblem of family, but it's also food that is not exactly the healthiest, and we've had this debate in my family where we make the food we've made, but we do it in a much more helpful way now. So even though weight has always been a constant in your life, it feels like it's also been a lens on all of these other parts of the black experience. Absolutely n. at this point, I think in our national magistrate, it's also a cliche in some way. Right? Thank thanks to soul food because it was such an important movie for us. Thanks to some episodes of boondocks. I think sometimes when we talk about hell. In black communities. I think we get focused on the food that we put in our bodies and we should. I think we should talk about food deserts. I think we should talk about the ways we've been encouraged and discouraged putting healthy foods in our body..

So I wonder if we could start by asking you to read from the very beginning, just right on the all page. One in like two thirds down page to I've, I've got mine with me. So if you wouldn't mind. Absolutely been, I did not want to write to you. I wanted to write a lie. I did not want to write honestly about black lives. Black thighs, black loves black labs, black foods, black addiction, black stretch marks, black dollars, black words, black abuses, black blues, black belly buttons, black wins, black bins, black bans black consent. Black parents are black children. I did not want to write about us. I wanted to write an American memoir. I wanted to write a lie. I wanted to do that old black work of pandering in line to folk who pay us to pander and lied to them every day. I wanted to write about our families. Relationships too simple carbohydrates, deep fried meats and high fructose corn syrup. I wanted to book to begin with my way and three. Hundred nineteen pounds and end with my way and one hundred sixty five pounds. I wanted to pepper the book with acerbic warnings to us fat black folk in the deep, south and sacri- sentimental exportations from grand mama. I did not want you to laugh. I wanted to write a lie. I wanted to write about how fundamental present black grandfather's responsible, black mothers, magical, black grandmothers and perfectly disciplined. Black children are to our liberation. I wanted to send a a something, a someone who wants us dead and dishonest. A one at white Americans who have proven themselves even more unwilling to confront their lives to consider how their lives limit our access to good love, healthy choices. And second chances a wanted to book to begin an end with the assumption that if white Americans reckon with their insatiable appetites for black Americans suffering and we reckon with our insatiable appetite or unhealthy food, we could all be ushered into a reformed era of American prosperity. I wanted to create a fantastic literary spectacle. I wanted to literary spectacle to ask nothing of you grand Mamma or me other than our adherence to a low carb diet, limited sugar weightlifting, twelve thousand. Steps a day gallons of water and no eating after midnight. I want you to promise. I did not want you to remember. I wanted to write a lie one at that lie to be titillating a wrote that lie.

ABC's ‘The Conners’ Premiered Without Roseanne. How Did It Go?
"Why this surprised me because I mean there have been some good reviews. But Neil Justin in the Star Tribune who covers the TV in media. Here's what he wrote the Connors is even better without disgraced Roseanne. Wow. ABC sitcom is heartbreaking. But also hilarious. I was surprised. Yeah. Here's what he wrote ABC game. Critics look at two episodes of the new series, but only on the condition. That they not reveal how Roseanne CONNER is no longer in the picture fine. What can be said is that the explanation seems completely natural as if the writers new last year that the character might disappear it's heartbreaking, but also hilarious. He goes on to write laughing inappropriately is what mom taught us to do says older daughter Becky in Tuesday's premier. The overshadowed cast mates Neil rights overshadowed, sometimes by Roseanne finally gets to do more than bicker. Especially the sisters. And she said that Laura he said rather Laurie Metcalf as Jackie has a scene in which Jackie edges toward like a breaking point while rearranging the kitchen and Neil says that that scene alone could earn her a fourth EMMY suites. Yeah. He writes bars contributions can't be brushed under the couch her brand of dark humor along with her insistence in Americans struggling to pay the bills should command center stage remained vital the series. The disgrace star may not be in a position to unleash one of her signature cackles, but viewers have every reason to roar. Roar and breathe a sigh of relief. So that's what Neil rights today. Four stars. I was it's interesting that Neil wrote this because last night, I wrote I think it was Vanity Fair. Esquire got together with some former writers of Roseanne from the original run and some talked. Under the condition of being anonymous and said, it was fifty fifty some said that the show they wished the show the best. And there were there were two from the original run that said, look, no matter how disgraced no matter how much you don't like her personally. It's very hard to replace a lead of a show. And you have to have this one writer was like here's the deal. It takes a certain this is almost verbatim. It takes a certain personality type to lead lead sitcom Roseanne had it and it's hard to fill that void. With an ensemble. And the writer said, I don't know if it's a he or she. But the writer said they love John John Goodman, love Laurie Metcalf and love Sara Gilbert, they said, but none of them have that X factor that can lead a show Louis Metcalf. Could do it you do. Yeah. And I feel like this back in the day Roseanne did. But not now when this rebuild came back. I thought are acting was awful me to see eye gla-. I said the same thing I thought I remember our review after the premiere of the reboot I thought Roseanne's timing which she was known for her her timing was always very natural. I think we went back that day that we talked about it on this show. I went back, and I watched two of her routines on Carson and her delivery in the standard was like she was telling us a story her her acting in the premiere last year was very stilted. It was like she was reading. It was very Rattatte her reading of the lines. It seemed like lines. I think she felt uncomfortable. Doing this whole reboot. I listened to. She was a guest on the Joe Rogan podcast. Oh, you listen to that. I listened to the whole thing. Yes. She kind of mentioned in that that you know, in terms of the in the writer's room. She wanted to have a different voice be represented. She's like, yes, you can have all of the Trump jokes all you want. But at the same time there needs to be some balance here. So she would fight for. Digs on her character voted for Trump. And so she said I want to have some kind of balance here because our people would have voted for him. Back in the Connors we represent. Yes. That's what we would have represented, or at least let's have some some play back and forth. And she said that she it was not very receptive in the writer's room. So for sure I think that that first season it was already feeling uncomfortable. And when that tweet came out, it just was okay. Let's just this is this is our time to go. I do we have to give some credit for two Roseanne for giving up her financial. Gay from an stake in the show to be able to have the character. Either the actors and everyone behind the scene continue their job that was very giving of her. Absolutely. Because if you got no reason, everybody should know the ins and outs of TV Roseanne owned, you know, owned part if not all of the rights to the key. Well, it's her. Yeah. To the rights to that character. So in order to move forward ABC demanded that Roseanne have no interest whatsoever. And I guess it's very apparent her. Name is nowhere in the credits. And you will notice if eagle-eyed viewers pay close attention to the pictures in the Connor living room. There are no pictures of Roseanne anywhere like her. They they don't even have the rights, nor do I think they wanted to use her likeness in any way, which I find fascinating. More of her side after that interview too. Watching it tonight. And that's why I'm curious to see how they do this. And where they're going to go with it. I'm sure it's gonna be really funny, but it is heartbreaking on so many levels. Yeah. What what do you feel? We don't have a lot of time. But but I didn't get to listen to this. Yeah. What is there something specifically that turned your dial a little bit to see her side a little bit more? Absolutely. Yeah. I mean, she felt she's feels very misunderstood that. You know, she she didn't mean her tweet in that way. And also that this swiftness. I mean, I remember when this happened. We were all like, yeah. Okay. That's what you get. But at the same time, I two of her tweets it was this tweet. And there was another tweet like many years ago that was kind of brought to light in the controversy of the the, you know, the current the recent tweet they got fired, but you just who the swiftness of that. And that they're just moving forward. There is some. Kind of sadness there when she was talking about it that she wishes the show. Success, but you could tell she doesn't want to be a part of it. And it's just. I I'm confused though, you you you said you started to see her side. Yeah. Just sadness that she was. She was a part of it. And that the the feel so misunderstood that. That's not met by her tweet. And Joe Rogan, you know, he's also he's he agrees with her that she's a comedian. And that you know that this is a slippery slope of one tweet or two over how long she's been on Twitter can end thing so swiftly. They had other examples of people who've said far worse things that were given. And also they were backed by their station like they used Smith A B as an example her tweet that controversy, but comedy central was behind her supporting her for it. She felt no support from ABC. Yeah. And so some good points there. I I need to listen to the interview
