"As such I feel moved to ask a certain question I mean I've sometimes interviewed public figures over the years who've seen themselves portrayed in some kind of mini series And I remember one man who was a former government official who said you know they came over to my house they talked to me They tried to get my accent They tried to get the way I dressed they even asked me to take out old clothes They got all of that right But they didn't get right was what actually happened Well what's that saying Never let the facts get in the way of a good story I think when you watch winning time especially what you see is that the things that they did that the participants say didn't happen are things that were done to accentuate and accelerate and intensify the story The problem is that people are going to watch all of this and they're going to assume all of this stuff happened And if I was Jerry West and they showed me taking my MVP trophy and throwing it through a window and breaking it and you didn't do it that would make me upset And PhD critic Eric Dickens however always good to talk to you Thanks so much for being with us That's right You don't have to worry about me throwing anymore Thanks a lot Now it's time for more sports The NBA playoffs a major league star gets two year suspension in the first new year to the year thrown by 5 different pitchers Is that fair and pierce Tom Goldman joined just on thanks so much for being with us Hi Scott Second round of the NBA playoffs begin tomorrow with a great matchup The Boston Celtics versus fair.

"Russia Continues to claim It is ready for talks While at the same time it narrows the avenues for diplomacy There are actions simply do not match Their words You know in Harris says that the U.S. and its allies are united and ready with what she said are unprecedented financial sanctions on key industries and players in Moscow if an attack on Ukraine happens And who else will the Bush president meet with in Munich You know she is also meeting with German Chancellor ola Schultz today Harris is spending time with allies checking in to make sure they're all on the same page about how to respond to a Russian invasion of Ukraine And she says she's been heartened by what she's heard so far There will be some other meetings as well on the sidelines of the Munich security conference Yesterday she met with some of the smaller members of NATO the Baltic states They want more U.S. troops in the region because they're worried about what Russia might do Biden has shored up the U.S. presence in Poland and Romania but there's no immediate words about any other plans for more troops and he has been clear that U.S. troops will not go into Ukraine if attacked And pierce White House correspondent Frank urdu is in Munich thanks so much Thanks Scott And now it's time for sports Pointer Olympics come to a close with another doping scandal on questions about the treatment of young athletes and pierce Tom Goldman is in Beijing Tom thanks so much for being with us Good to be with you Scott Ice skating was at the center of all eyes this week And I understand the saga continues What's the latest It did you know with 15 year old Camila volleyball who is known worldwide now but not the way she wants to be known world wide At the beginning of the games if you remember she helped Russia win the team gold medal and it was after that that her positive test for a banned drug was revealed The International Olympic Committee then said it would delay awarding medals to all three teams until after the valjevo case was resolved possibly months away now the U.S. figure skaters who won silver in that event they're saying they want a sports tribunal to rule before tomorrow's closing ceremony and they want to ruling that forces the medals to be awarded here and now Scott this is a big deal for these athletes to be recognized not months later when it'll seem like an afterthought And of course the IOC doesn't want the image of a possibly tarnished Russian team on the podium as well So this valjevo saga appears to be going to the bitter end at these games Recognizing that this 15 year old girl is under investigation For doping Oh my God What happened to her when she fell and the reaction of her coach Well you know there was so much pressure and negativity surrounding this kid and she is a kid And she crumbled on the ice as many people saw And then the International Olympic Committee committee president Thomas Bach noted publicly had disturbing it was he used the word chilling to see her coach's berating her and not offering her comfort Now not surprisingly Russia has shot back a Kremlin spokesman said about Thomas Spock the IOC president quote he doesn't like the harshness of our coaches but everybody knows that the harshness of a coach and high level sport is key for their athletes to achieve victories Scott I'm assuming there are coaches elsewhere in the world just as dedicated winning who's strongly disagree Not to mention fathers of teens like some of us are Ah It was hard to watch What about the doping case What happened now Yeah well as I mentioned resolution may be months away A hearing to determine if Faye Eva is actually guilty of a doping violation that has to happen and inquiry into those coaches to see what if any involvement they had There's lots of suspicion that eval doped It was the adult surround her who made it happen And then getting to the bottom of why it took about a month and a half for testing and anti doping agencies to reveal her positive test right smack in the middle of the Olympics potentially ruining this 15 year old's budding career Yeah We have a minute left to talk about sports I mean like what actually happened there What do you want to spotlight You know I'm going to mention a quotation Scott from a Chinese figure skater sway Wen Jing is the female member of the pair's team that has skated masterfully here at these games and actually won the gold medal tonight turning the kiss and cry area into a kiss and cry and mob scene when several other Chinese team members ran up for a big hug a thon But anyway sway Wang Jing said this earlier Quote we feel like when we show our best selves to the world the world belongs to us only during the several minutes perhaps billions of people around the world are looking at us This is the most honorable moment of our life What I loved about it Scott it captures so well the feeling of athletes who succeed at the Olympics whether winning medals or not They've trained for years out of the limelight And.

new platform that allows people to connect and share stories even while they're apart how who would nineteen meetings it's terrible being alone passion Toby I say talking to his grandmother Jane I say using StoryCorps connects Toby's father courses the founder StoryCorps David I say he joins us from his home in Brooklyn Dave thanks so much for being with us Scott thanks for having me on how does this work well as you know StoryCorps for sixteen years has been about two people sitting in a booth looking each other in the I am asking the important questions of life of each other and that interview going to the library of Congress so kind of collecting the wisdom of humanity and about a month ago when the pandemic cat we realized that that was not going to work anymore so our team got together very quickly and created this new platform which is kind of a special video chat platform that makes it possible for you to safely by video chat do a StoryCorps interview with a loved one it walks you through the entire process and at the end you hit a button and it goes to the library of Congress and a time to have these conversations in which having these conversations might be more important than ever yeah I mean before the pandemic when we were out and about in the world there wasn't a day that past where someone didn't come up to me and say I wish I interviewed my brother I wish I'd interviewed my mom I wish I'd interviewed my grandmother but I waited too long and you know I think this the what we're going through now is a reminder that you know not to wait we're going to play a little more the exchange between Toby and and your mother my grandmother died of the flu epidemic of nineteen eighteen which we're thinking a lot about because we're in a pandemic right your ads my mother and her sisters they were all orphans so this is family history there that's part of the shared history of the world and Dave I hear that Toby who's eleven has been sick himself there's an exchange about that how are you feeling better now call center all right I'm so glad you're feeling better I want you to be well and I love you from the agency and back oh my gosh love you for may just hit him back how is Toby is my tough little guy he's he's hang and then he had his finally was able to get a covert test yesterday and it's it's a little bit you know unpleasant but he's hanging tough he's a great kid what do you think of Toby and your mother take away from their conversation together one of the things about StoryCorps interviews is that I well there there's kind of two things that always happen one is that you learn things that you never knew before and Toby you know didn't have to talk to his grandmother about her grandmother and the history there and it's also you know it's a chance to say the things to a loved one that you have always wanted to say but sometimes you just can't say and you know and I think that that the bottom line with all these interviews is that you don't regret it you know he's he's a kid he's he's eleven thirteen Israeli the age you're supposed to be officially to do these interviews and that you know he's he's got a little bit of a tough exterior but I think that having the chance to be with his grandmother in that way was really important from an incredibly important for his grandmother you know I think a lot of what we're thinking about StoryCorps connect as you know social isolation and loneliness and and you know giving the people the chance to have this really meaningful connection at this time when we're not face to face with loved ones so this recording among and with all the others will be in the library of Congress right exactly yes so so much both I think it's important that future generations that Toby's great great grand kids will get to know his grandmother in that way but also you know as your old friend studs Terkel I used to talk about bottom up history yeah you know this is the history of this moment through the words and feelings and thoughts and wisdom of the people who are living through it the everyday people Dave I say the founder of story core and you can record conversations with your loved ones on the StoryCorps website Dave thanks so much thank god it's great to talk to you they may not be playing sports at the moment but why let a great thing go to waste time for sports

"Considered I'm Audie Cornish and I'm ari Shapiro today lawmakers brought the impeachment battle to radios and TV's across the country with the first day of public testimony ambassador William Taylor and Deputy Assistant secretary of state George Kent took questions from Democrats and Republicans about whether president trump withheld aid from Ukraine while pressing the country's leader to launch an investigation into Joe Biden and his son hunter committee counsel Steve caster did the bulk of the questioning for Republicans he touched on corruption Mr Ken corruption in Ukraine's and Democrats that's correct to the quote your regular channel for diplomacy fronted by the president's lawyer Rudy Giuliani this year regular channel of diplomacy it's not as outlandish as it could be is that correct it's not as outlandish as it could be Dante probed who knew what about hunter Biden investor Taylor do you know whether hunter Biden offers anything other than the fact that his dad's former vice president I'd I don't to hear the perspective of a Republican congressman on today's hearing we are joined by Jody Errington of Texas we should say we invited Republicans on the committee to join us as well as several Republican house leaders they declined congressman Errington we are grateful for your time today welcome a great to be with your did you find the witnesses believable a yeah I didn't have any reason to think that they were telling anything but the truth the problem is they were telling accounts of something from a second and third hand perspective so that was my concern may say a second third hand perspective but many Democrats will point out that the people who experienced this first hand who work in the White House have been blocked from testifying well I think what I do know is that the Republicans have asked for a series of witnesses and questions and all of this is being controlled by our chairman shift this is why I think the whole process is purely political it's not edible are legitimate and chill they run this the way past impeachment proceedings have been run or the president ask counsel and but again I still submit that it is not fair I just want to be out there though that your criticizing the testimony as being second or third hand to the White House is blocking the people with the first hand experience from testifying so I mean and I would too in in here's why this isn't an impeachment proceeding if I didn't think it was be fair enough I thought this was something beyond just a political railroad job then I don't know why we would ever have folks from the White House participate it's too important not to do it unless it's unless it's run in an impartial and unbiased weight and that's not happening let me ask you specifically about the testimony because we heard different arguments from Republicans over the last few weeks is it your view that president trump did not hold up military aid into Ukraine agreed to investigate the bidens or do you think president trump did make that investigation a condition of military aid and that that is okay I think the president did exactly what we want our chief fiduciary to do and that's make sure before we give taxpayer monies to any country but especially one with the the reputation for corruption that Ukraine has that we would make sure that the new leader president so Lansky was committed to rooting out graft and corruption but none of the testimony has talked about rooting out graft and corruption it has talked specifically about Joe Biden hunter Biden and the company that hunter was on the board of if you wanted the president to root out corruption that would come out somewhere in the testimony we haven't seen anything about that well you've here's one thing we learned from today's testimony that the career diplomats also expressed concern about corruption in Ukraine also one of them expressed concern about the perception of impropriety with hunter Biden what do you think was the job of Republicans on the committee today well with not having discretion to do what Adam Schiff and Democrats are doing it was to bring to light that this was second and third hand and that there was no impeachable offense and that this is an exercise in politics not in fact finding or truth and justice Republican congressman Jody Arrington of Texas thank you for joining us today thank you in men's college basketball last night and early season match up between top twenty teams ended with Oregon beating Memphis in Portland but the bigger story of the game with the presence of Memphis freshman star player James Wiseman he is right in the middle of a legal battle with the NC double a and pierced Tom Goldman says Weisman's case is generating more anger about the NC double a strict rules on amateurism it's not often the mere act of putting a basketball player in the starting lineup.
