That's the first thing that she she was so excited to let me know that. Yeah. I never talked to a guy with balls on Cochran Dick, piercing? But what did you call it? I HAVE A to gauge Prince Albert Prince Albert and now describe the process of getting a to gauge like what how, how do you have to start and where the end and how far do you want to go with it. So also mentally where were you at? Yeah we'll show I'm probably stick with too because as my peers are very nicely. Told me last time with your anatomy I would stop here. This is his last name. His was in your out of Dick. And it's in the head. The head goes through the whole and out the bottom of the head. Okay. Out The. Okay. Got It. Is it a ring? A captive catering. Okay. And that when you put that in and out of a vaginal cavity, it don't hurt. Wow. Steal. Okay Oh now is this something that you just like once your pierce you just keep it in for life or you can you take it out and I take it out if I wanted. At this point I've had it since I'm eighteen. Wow. So it does feel like party of me like I feel weird without it. How what inspired you to get it? What what factors I've always wanted one since I found out you could do that I saw the movie strange land. Okay. I was like fourteen or fifteen, which is a movie directed and written by Dee Snyder the singer. Yeah where he is a killer that meets people in AOL chat rooms. And he is obsessed with tattoos and piercings, and he gives a guy an amfar Lang, which is a. Stud. Through the head of your debt okay straight. Rod. Yeah Oh and I've always wanted to Dick Pearson's them. Wow. Why. So when you get your Dick Pierce like are they are they numbing the the Dick? Okay. So I've actually had my Dick Pierced. Twice Once when I was sixteen oh I went to one of the fake piercing places that look like a T. shirt or sunglass stand on Saint Marks. The Wall back. Shop, our boy I walked up and down the street nor would take me because obviously, I didn't have. Id and this big African guy comes up to me he's like you want the buddy thing. And he had a book. And I, but he didn't deal Prince Albert. What he did was a surface piercing. Okay. Imagine he just took a little skin on the bottom of the deck. Pinched. It to ring through well. Not that I mean yeah. Seems like it's GonNa that's GonNa catch on something though it didn't really it was fun. But unfortunately me at sixteen having appears Dick and high school was not a good secret keeper. Okay. And I believe it was discussed in a band parents meeting what I was not in the school band. We why do people care so much about your Dick Pierce come from a nowhere town? Jersey where that was news oh boy. My town which like is still has sixty thousand plus people. I once had fake nose ring and it was somehow got back to like regular school from summer school. My Mom's best friend called Yeah said you heard about it and my mom called my bluff and made a doctor's appointment to prove that I didn't have it. Oh, call one, Alison. Meka and But then when I turned eighteen and the first thing I did was appears how was your mom when she found out your Dick was pierced I think we never officially confirmed that because we never went to the doctor Okay Oh Mandy. Appointment. And called my bluff and I took it out. Yeah. Wow. Okay. That's that's why he recently has seen by Dick in a movie. Okay. She's she definitely knows his peers now. Yeah. Mom. Yeah I mean you're grown ass man now. So you can do whatever you want. It makes me wonder of. So if a person if a man such as yourself not afraid the idea of metal steel going through the your your e three and out the other side doesn't frighten you doesn't deter you. that. Makes me think your fear response is lower than most people know it hurts and it's terrifying but it's you like it. I mean it's thrilling just like any other body MoD or see in a scary movie or yeah. Yeah. It's a pretty safe environment the person's trained hopefully. Yeah. I mean not that I guy. Was A. bad idea. Sixteen. The secondly, the peers, my Dick was angry lesbian Spanish lesbian kind. In like scully and she went she did you piss yet I was like what she's go take a piss because I want you to Piss on me like she was mad. Men That's great. She's a good job. Like this like Michael Myers. Stretched so like you start at like at ten or twelve. Gauge and then slowly get stretched over time and that means the thickness of the ring. Yes. What you're talking about the because when I think of gauge. Plugs, I'm thinking of plugs. With People's ears, it's the same concept. Okay. Yeah. Yeah. And what now what are you trying to prove this with you? Big Bigger I don't know I just always like that looks cool and the farther I went the more I liked it like if my if the ring I had through my deck right now was. Face. It be. A distraction walking to me, right. and not even seeing. Destruction. A you would have trouble talking to me really. Wow okay. I got look that up I gotta go to to gauge. Piercing looks like because I don't have a concept of it. What town how New Jersey are you from seacaucus Seco and it's so funny because I trained transfers where. Yeah. Yes it is. That makes sense because I like I. Don't think I actually knew that you were from New Jersey and I always just like people from New Jersey there I know everyone makes fun of it but I just feel like they're better people wholesome. Yeah. Why was sure hope that's the word that I would've used but unique. Now saying someone such as yourself I would pin is a sexual deviant and my correct depends on the fund sex stuff you are in pain because you also do this the thing or watch the thing where people are putting hooks in their backs and just hanging out. Literally, I tend to run with a crowd of people. Do you know anybody personally that's done the metal hooks hanging from their back skin your best friend does that his he he he he does Music video production. The has a lot of that in it. Yeah and then yet town tons of friends I that a bark off for like twelve years and that would be one of the things that happened at the bar crawl guy will get hung by the skin. Differently groups that do that. Yeah. They're called suspension cruise right and they're all certified August dsm. You know medical training right and Yeah. So I've been to a million events. And learn from the Hook I, don't live no interest, right. So do they are they hard when they do that? Boehner's No. Okay A. Meditation Oh, boy. Wow. So questionable if you wanted to do it like could anybody do is like the you pay for But does your body away like? Is there a certain? Like need more hooks. Yes. We'll see when you more hooks you're. So you more hooks but like your because that's just to make it even amount of weight on each piece of skin. Okay. Interesting. You know they always tell me that there was a guy who was about four fifty who did it? but compounds while I'm not deterred by my size, it's just I don't WanNa do it yeah. I've hung a six pack off my Dick. Let's getting says last driving on iron off my ring. Zach? Your dicks get is that strong? Make Your Dick Bigger No. Nothing on that, there's a pack of six beers hanging off your digging it did it hurt yeah. Did you like it? A surreal. I added Dominatrix that used to fill up like she would hook a gallon jug to it. Lowly fill it out. So that I couldn't jerk off until she took it off while that while Caca see that's fun. I guess I guess God damn. So like pain and fear like. Solicit a response in your system. I think it's just it's an adrenaline rush, Herbert. I agree. I. Love being a pervert. Expect from your physical pain but that seems like more like just thinking of like being a phase where if I just like like Hong It. The part of my.

Jenna Coleman Reflects On A Truly Royal Season

"Uh-huh. I'm Jay sleigh cop. And you're listening to masterpiece studio where the triumphant flourish Queen Victoria and her Royal consort Prince Albert have officially opened the great exhibition of eighteen fifty one. There were many who said this could not be done. But they didn't deserve the vision of one man. My husband. And his accomplice, sir. Henry Cole who understood that the nations of the world were ready that this festival of peace. And now, it is with the greatest pleasure that I declare the exhibition open after a stormy season of anger and anguish Alberton. Victoria seem to have resolved their simmering marital tensions only for the prince to collapse in the third season's final scene. Albert. Oh. Elbit? Looking back upon this season. Jenna Coleman had much to anticipate as her Queen Victoria, continued to grasp the limits per still young monarchy. Ultimately, she's full eleven was dainty and became the most powerful woman in the world and had to stunned in in a room and literally rule, and I think I think it's taken us so much to be taken seriously. Coleman joins us for the final podcast episode of this third year, Victoria, looking at the great exhibition self-imposed exile on the isle of white and a season of trouble and romance with the Royal couple and Victoria, creator head writer and executive producer daisy Goodwin. Returns for a final round fact or fiction. And this week we are joined by Victoria star. Jenna coleman. Welcome. Hi. How are you? Victoria starts off the season pregnant and surrounded not only by her brood. But also by pearls and diamonds while Europe succumbs to revolution. What is Victoria, believe herself to be safe from the uprisings that are occurring on the continent? I think she feels safe because I think it's beyond comprehension. I think since the age of around eleven twelve years old that she's been told she would be Queen of England her future path everything is mapped out for her. So the idea that that could no longer be the case that she could be overthrown she's seen and she sees by the man's dunning in front of her. I mean, it kind of shakes her identity to its core. So I think I think it's an identity crisis. I think the idea that she could just be overthrown by people is is beyond what she can think. On that note that does what happened to Louis Philippe into Feodor challenged. Her perceptions of people or her own responsibilities to them. I suppose what it does what she's never really been faced with is the idea that that we're all replaceable. And I suppose she's taken for granted a whole life that she is loved unsupported und- wanted and the idea that she. Paps might not be is is incredibly painful. I think for her. It was at times quite distressing to watch Victorian Albert's marriage deteriorate the season, how would you integrate their emotional arc this season? I think that definitely more disparate they begin behalves together, but they have just such different methods when it comes to the day, Chope and ruling and politics, and they're very different beings. And in a way, they kind of get further and further and further away from one another. I mean when we meet them back this series where we end of the Christmas special where they kind of acknowledged no longer children anymore. And then when we pick up here, the I think the sixth child is on its way that kind of about ten years into the marriage now things have changed. They all grownups his law of children. So I always the dynamics of them marriage. His has. Definitely changed. And it's a very different side to Victoria than we've seen before she's been angry in the past. But her fury here is really palpable. She's smashing bus. She's slapping Albert she's throwing wine in his face. Was it a refreshing change of pace to play Victoria with the sense of rage? I mean, I always think is really interesting because when I first began the series outside, but this doesn't feel like, Victoria, Victoria, Victoria, that we know from kind of very obviously from history from portrait's, and temperament I've always really look forward to is beginning at the age of eighteen when she was a lot more kind of romantic. I mean, she is romantic actually anything. She Victoria's coal. She always will be I think she's a romantic by nature again, which might go against. You know, people's kind of sense of her. I think she is I but always working more and more towards that kind of the Victoria that we know from Judi dench's, MRs Brown, and then late Victorian Abdul that Victoria is a lot more of a shorter kind of. Temper and doesn't have to really answer to anyone care. What people think can of always enjoyed playing pregnant for that reason because I feel like the fuses shorter. And I think she gets older it she becomes more and more and more that way Tempa definitely becomes pretty short which I love to play. I mean, this is an era of restraint and repression. I mean, what was it like filming those scenes were Victoria, does get more physical. Whether it's the wine in the face of the slop. Yeah, I have to say that for -nology had was very fun to smash you want the crime. Queen can I do that. When my own husband doesn't think the fact that I've been knowing golden contradicting yourself, the chinks they low down to the level of you people. But you are because integ- that most of people cannot even understand has been omitted. From coin you have no logic. It's liberating. And I think is interesting because it is in a period of not only is it appeared for straighten the job that she has the kind of the title, and what she was born into abound to is everything about is about restraint, and she is not a person who likes restraint much. So I think I always loved that kind of battle. I love Victoria's relationship this season with her children, especially with birdie and Vicky who blossomed into full characters of their own. How do you think victory approaches motherhood at this point, my initial ideas of Victoria with motherhood? You know, she's always been I'm big US about it. I think she's always fighting with the conflict of the natural instinct says she has of loving children immensely, but also the conflict of I've just got back to work a non pregnant again and physically have to go through this again is taking me away from my job. But people telling me, I am irrational and tired and. I want to be out riding, and I want to be free. And I want to be independent because I think that's what she's four entire life for since the Kensington system when she was very little. So is she's always battling with the big you ity of her own feelings towards had children. But it's only actually in later life that she really told them, you know, you ruined my first few years of marriage. And I thought you like a frog gun d-. You know, all of these kinds of things is when she gets older, the resentment comes out, and actually when you read diaries, I was really shocked because again, I was kind of looking forward to playing a mother is in, you know, so by nature so kind of available I suppose, but when you read a diaries, it's like every other sentence Burt he said this after made me laugh so much today because he did this and this and so and so lost a tooth. You know, these stories about children and the ladies read one of the books about from lady-in-waiting, laid different ladies. Waiting and they were saying how you know for the time. She spent a lot more time with the children than would usual women in the court so to speak. So again, I think it's another kind of misconception that she was not very friendly mother say, but I think that comes later in her life, Victoria, confronts. The nasty tutor, Mr. Cain. Oh. You see this to explain the method. Not to my mother is that a great reminder of her strength. Not just as a monarch. But as a parent as well. Yeah, I think so I mean everything about that kept the CNN just thinking lioness like lioness is kind of a soul about mother and cub, and you know, the moment you kind of messes. My children mate got him. That was very much the feeling that scene. It was it was the the mother lioness popping up straight into protection mode. Nothing to do with Queen complete an utter, mother nature. What I love to is that that sense of motherhood as you say this lioness applies not only to her own children. But to the nation at large. I think we see that most clearly when she decides to visit the hospital and see the cholera victims with her own is does she view herself as both Queen and mother to Britain. Yes, she does nothing. I'm right in saying they did call the mother of the nation. But it's also, you know, she was the Queen to be a mother which is remarkable considering you know, really not that long ago tool. I suppose it's like, you know, the Royal family unit few quarrel with them, and you go on the trials and tribulations of people would have seen, you know, pregnant again giving birth again. And you know, it was also remarkable that she didn't die in childbirth. Because that was the remember the percentage is all but that was really really high. So every time she triumphed and she had another child another child public kind of going through that with her. I suppose I think she felt very keenly very deeply transaction between her on the. Public fisher. Victoria, and the Royal family leave London for Osborne house on the isle of weight amid the chaos in the streets. A is this move such a painful retreat for her? I think she feels an cowardice and that she's turning back on her people, and she's giving up, and she's not remaining and everything in col- wants to to to run away to remain on to see it through and believe in her people, and she's advised not to and again, she's heavily pregnant, and ultimately has babe. And then kind of, you know, Hoste listen to her husband and be the mother and the wife in that moment and not the Queen. And I think that that sits very wrongly in her. And I think she deeply deeply resents that. I love the fact that Victoria, isn't a paragon of virtue. She's at times very painfully human such as when she puts away scared's letter unopened in episode does she do so out of a sense of betrayal or of self preservation. I think both. I think it's not wanting to acknowledge the truth in many ways, not not to see written down to see it in, you know, kind of put it in a drawer, literally put it in a drawer is not real. It's not there. She's she's hurting. And I think when Victoria huts she kind of hits out a lot on behaves pops nor in the most admirable way at times. But again that makes a lot more interesting to play. She's a reactive person first. And then she kind of has to deal the consequences of horizons. Her words, but again, it's the kind of the remove her arguments with Albert like she will say the worst things in the world to him, and he can kind of remain cold and calm, and then ultimately, she's the one banging on his door apologizing. I didn't mean an absorption, please. You know, she's just she's impulsive. There's a tremendous sense of kindness and love that Victoria shows her former dresser when you visit scared on her deathbed, I couldn't dream of greater honor. She says when scare it tells her she intends to name the baby after her was this is heartbreaking film as it as it is to watch. Yeah. It was really sat on many levels because of a see now, fighting relieving vitamin essence the beginning. You know such breeding characters in their own, right? And and kind of watch, you know, the blossoming and the beginnings of that relationship, and how that story ends was was really hot breaking. But I think in terms of Victoria in the scene as well. I think it really humanizes her in a way because to she can usually do something she can usually save the day. She can make an order. She can. Change the situation. And ultimately, she realizes the Queen faces cholera, she's asleep, powerless and meaningless on small, and she can't do anything and to be so impotent in a situation is. Awful, victoria. And I think it definitely is one of those puts the world into perspective for her. When no was on the podcasts. She told us that you'd given her rather beautiful and perfect going away present why was this the ideal going away gift for Nell? So I d- I found like a proper Frank Italy's cookbook, one of the real ones recipes in and an infant now, I got hooked kind of an until Victorian happen. I mean me and now always laugh about the fact that we never look each other in scenes because we always by the dressing table looking in the mirror, and it was like no actually valley like always talking through a mirror at each other while you're doing half. And it's always like, you know, you always get makeup in saying telling now what they can move and caught move with pins and all of that stuff. So I just thought it was a very fitting kind of could really and thank you. Perfect. Why is Victoria? So incensed by the paper's printing, the private sketches that she did is really interesting one. This is speech in the episode which kind of takes a back she kind of reverts back to and she I became Queen. Anne, everyone told her that she was young and two inexperienced little girl. And I think in a way is his little girl complex that she has within her which I think she probably always has hot because. I'm not she's four eleven and was dainty and became the most powerful woman in the world and had stunned in a room and literally rule, and I think it's taken her so much to be taken seriously and work and kind of fight for her position. So to see herself what she sees undermined. The people see the other side of her which is this is the Victoria as pure and simple mother, and you know, she's wearing an apron, and she doesn't look like a Queen. And I think she really feels that kind of damages this. This image that she has portrayed of herself in her kind of regardless in power and the diamonds, and the you know, Coombs and an old of those stuff that she's put around represent power to be taken seriously. She feels it suddenly like a pack of cards as old undone because you know, they see her they see the real hope which is mother, and I think really dummies herself confidence that I think that she says she's just going to see me as a woman now, this will be just a woman. One of my favorite scenes this season is the exquisite Georgian ball that Victoria throws nets six to celebrate Arthur's christening. What was it like filming this very elaborate costumed sequence? Oh my goodness. It was major. It was. I mean, I mean higher make such a blast on costume. I vote Sutton photos on my phone with like, you know, the Whigs went into saying like buds in the ships. That was like a whole whole model ship in in somebody's wick sounds bonkers. It was all pretty bunk is actually, but yeah, we could really go to town on this Georgia bu-but, the costumes were. So I mean hair make it was like three hours a day. So unbelievably heavy, and then we're doing the dunces in them as well. It was a lot of fun. I think it was about three and a half four days filming in in the costumes. Besides Albert the other big emotional spine of the season is the fraught dynamic between Victoria and her half sister fidora, what did you make of their relationship? The season is complicated. They have such complicated relationship. I think Victoria has a complicated relationship with anything. Anyone that belongs to Kensington had childhood is so part of everything that she does. And how she is. And how she responds to to life is impacted her so much, and I think Feodor was privy to what that life was. And she left left when when she was very young to get married. I think it feels like this so much love there. But the so much kind of resentment and suspicion that both jealous of each other in different ways, and is it's really complicated relationship. And I think it's full of kind of a lot of hurt mistrust. But love really, which is kind of what makes it even harder, but Feodor is very much the Iago of all of all series. And you know, she she has a knock she can make everybody kind of fall in love with her. And she's the best emotional manipulator and kind of finds her in into into trying the emotional reliance of Victorian than Alba and kind of drive a huge wedge between them. This week's episode Victoria, finally stands up to feel no evidence. The best for me. I know you think that I have everything. To have nothing. But there is one thing. I don't have. Sister, Victoria struggled with pudding her childhood behind her. Whether it's Conroy in the Kensington system or saying goodbye delayed sin. Is this confrontation with Feo the moment where she's finally able to free herself in a way that Feo can't from her past. I suppose many senses, I suppose, it's olive branch moment. Really? But she doesn't take it. So it's an interesting way, you know, it kind of leaves them up too. But it's it's it's definitely Victoria, offering an olive branch. And I feel like quite big deal coming from Victoria, because she doesn't really do that very often is her reaching out is kind of hosting a need you. And that so for someone who is stubbornly independent kind of a big deal before this next question. A brief word from our sponsors.

There are so many amazing scenes this season between you and Kate Fleetwood who plays vio, but my favorite. I think has to be the archery sequence in episode seven how much fun was that to film. It was really fun was an Irish was that the series, you know, you'll shooting so quickly. And then, you know, you begin with all this then because I'm while with Victoria. I'm pretty much kind of in an a lot. We didn't get the prep time. So the two has like you can you can you play out Trie, can you? It's it's completely. We had like very quick training session like just before the scene. So we're both acting like very, cool and collected. But really hours elect going in all sorts of different directions. And by trying to Cope's the reality for that. So acting cool in you'll see hit the bullseye. But really it's like the crew like ducking going a different direction. So it was incredibly fun seem to play. But it's. So rich. It's kind of something quite dangerous and chess game me about it is political scene in a way as announced and I'll Autry scenes, but when you have something to hide behind is kind of destruction technique, you can talk it. It's it scheming gaming kind of politics on the surface. Feo insinuates Victoria might have inherited her grandfather's madness or suffers from mental instability after giving birth. Sophie, mom, that's has been declared her to be insane. Is there a parallel between their struggles? Given that unconventional women are often accused of being insane. Yes. Physcial Victoria's been threatened kind of since young, you know, hopefully, she won't go the way of the mod grandfather something that surrounded Victoria, our whole life. The the you know that because she she would show her emotions, perhaps she could be I think that's why she immediately recognizes with Sophie what's going on. And what's going on very quickly because brilliant line something about you know, when when women get cooled mad when the doing something that's inconvenient. It was very interesting. Victoria, seems keen to push Albert to takeover for Wellington as the commander in chief and give up his. Dreams for this exhibition. What does she? So afraid of when it comes to his plans is it that she's concerned about embarrassment for the family or that. He'll be personally humiliated. Yeah. I think it's puzzling the humiliated, I think she's in full of protection mode. I mean, his Umbrians associate great and of of that time, then to try and imagine. Okay. We're gonna you know, the great exhibition. This is what I want to do his my planet. So kind of beyond comprehension at that time. So he's huge -ly on bishops. I think she just worry to the him where it for him that he would fail somehow embarrassed himself will you know, until until she, you know, very quickly realizes that you know, she believes in him. I think she's in full protection mode. There's a beautiful moment at the great exhibition. When Victorian Albert emerged from the Crystal Palace. Do you see this perhaps Albert's finest moment, it truly is? I mean, you know, his start CHU is now in in Hyde Park. Daisy is described as the Steve Jobs of all time. And you know, he's someone that kind of sees over the horizon, he is mathematical scientific, but a complete dreamer is well in in many ways and someone who strives and strives strives and the most acute amount of detail into everything which I learned just even seeing those born and the way, you know, that house was put together and kind of you know, how Onate and he's kind of truly an autism. And in many ways such an unsung hero. And what he achieved. The grace mission was just I mean so much in Victoria's reign really is is down to Albert on. He's so hugely. I'm bishops. That's what's amazing to me that for all of his ambition. His his line is heartbreaking when he says to her. I want to remember that. I did something right? Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It is. It really is legacy. And so many ways, you know, she always hunts him on a pedestal. But I mean, his like it's like truly so deserving of being pedestal this moment, and she was causing my angel in diaries my angel album. And she wrote that day that truly, you know, shows often again relationships to the crowds writes about the people in the tasers in their eyes, and what she sore, and how people would chairing responding, and and then she wrote in after the day, the Greg's vision, she said it was a day to live forever. And I just loved that so much I thought it was so romantic, and so moving, and it it truly truly was it really revolutionized at brought so many people together, and the the kind of the advances scientifically manufacturing old across the kind of the globe. It was huge. Charles Dickens wrote about it when he came Florence Nightingale is the I think one of the suggest Allston who went as well. It's really, you know, it's so it's remarkable what he did. And that's actually very out because it's always favorite was there. It's remarkable. But it it truly truly is. So we managed to get that line. Anyway, I think I had line saying the world forget this day. And I said today's please can we out this coming out that one line, and I read an issue. Oh, do it. So this won't be the end of the series. I turned to him. And I say it was a day to live forever to love love exits. What she what she wrote? And I found it so poetic few people have been able to put Victoria in her place as deftly as Lord Palmerston. At the very end of the season. They emerged with a sort of hard one friendship when might say, or at least a mutual respect. How did you view their dynamic over the course of the season? So when you read Victorian diaries, and she looks little Palmerston. She hated him. Hated him. I don't think anyone could infuriate in the way that little Palmerston does. And it's because I think ultimately that quite similar and he's very popular. She feels threatened by competition. But you also he doesn't calling to flatter her in the way the other people have a bit of a lone ranger on. I don't think she likes tool. So you truly she very much disliked him under. I think ultimately as the series goes on they kind of find a bit of mutual respect and kind of become allies. There's a sense between last season in this one that Victoria's being stripped of the relationships and attachments that she has whether it's Lord 'em or Leeson this season. It scared, and then Wellington is the Queen having to rely on herself, more and more. Will. I think is so sad about it actually is. Because she that's life is an I think I what she is such a symbol of endurance. And she remains remains along the way she, of course, close to people, and they leave and she loses them under. I think you for me that kind of really gives the series and gives me the feeling of time is passing and she's getting old, and she's growing and along the way you lose people. And I think I think that's kind of was really really Saad about it is because you following of following her since the age of eighteen and she loses all these people that are incredibly close to her along the way. But yeah, it's kind of ready poignant because I suppose it's kind of a reflection of of life in many ways, and then she grows and she moves into a different phase different Asian, a different suppose. She's growing up all of the time. You know? Like from the moment. She lost touch. The the great exhibition is ultimately is smashing success of equestrian Albert in this moment, finally truly reconciled, they kiss and then Albert collapses falling ground unconscious. How difficult moment was this to shoot to get into that? That mindset that you're finally reconciled, and maybe she's going to lose him. Maybe this is what I suppose shock factor will happen. So quick I love that way you made that sound like she kisses him. And then he collapses deathly kiss. Yeah. I suppose is kind of you know, we leave it mid scene which thinks great kind of cliffhanger for the series. So, you know, there's no time to really take him. What's happening is kind of auto like Shaq on suppose, the shot comes after very much after the calm, the calm of the kind of the that time that they've had together the kind of the build up of the gray expression. And suddenly, it's quiet, and it's calm and the the candles are on down the corridor. And it's back to kind of you know, and then suddenly we get hit by something else. And then we leave the series. So it's a very clever kind of device from daisy perfect that they're sending on the very spot where Victoria proposed to Albert back in season one without you. And did everything I could still Pugh. Majid? Is there a sense that their stories coming full circle here before it all goes horribly wrong? It's kind of always I suppose as the beauty of aging with the character aging with series and taken over so many events and huge vents in Khalife is that you kind of those moments where that, wow that was then and look at us now like, you know, grownup some seven kids, then, you know, but the view is have been nut journey with you as as as you've been on it kind of playing those, you know, really crucial moments in somebody's life, and it's the beauty of returning series. And and getting to kind of go through those milestones yet is definitely something about show. I think is we almost played on the balcony outside. But as she quite a tricky place to shoot and death director wanted somewhere that photographic Klay was beautiful. And then it just felt natural that you know, they wanna down and. The exact spot where he proposed. This is one of those moments where we as of you're no more than Victoria. I mean, we know that Albert's end is coming in a way, the she doesn't how did you read this moment? When you read it in the script is this sort of the beginning of the end, I'm pretty sure Thome find daisy straightaway and asked if he was being killed off. The first question. When I say collapse is like a faint like like, you know, by suppose, the kind of the you know, what we what we would use to. But it is again, it's turning point fischel because I think with Alba the kind of the work that he put into the great exhibition the Grigsby own woods, his health very rapidly went into decline fish oil. I think is oughta exertion an officer, you know, a human walking himself to the ops bone in many ways. So that definitely had an effect and happens very quickly and kind of see that physically and his appearance is a good way to end this series. And I think like we ended the Christmas special with known kids. Grownups now is kind of like, okay, there's the end of this chop to returning the page into another to now between Victoria, and the cry. You've now given birth on screen eight times, how do you get in the right frame of mind for that before shooting a birth scene? I listen to music I own ously. Don't know like is really hard to provide for seen. I mean, I've say makeup teens amazing because knit Collins had makeup design has has had children. She's like his in your remembrance in your buck. But I just think it's such a primal thing. And you know of which seventy videos and things like that. But I just think it's so about adrenaline on the thing with Drennan Lynn is you don't quite what you're gonna do. And because it's just it's pumping in it's in units. So all I tried to do is really build up my adrenaline and kind of I get incredibly notice and kind of hub of caffeine. And then I listened to light really intense music with drums and things like that. And then they say action and just see what happens, but it's kind of it's all about building them adrenaline to me. So what's the ideal birth seem music choice? So embarrassing listen to mum vans. And I don't know why drums in the Bonder. But this is feels there's something sending quite prime Linnet as well by don't if is the beat of the drums and the makes you feel quite alive. Let's say, but yeah, there's something about which really helps some unknown reason. It's all about Marcus Mumford. God. No. Gentleman. Thank you so much. Thank you. Nice to chat. And we are back with daisy Goodwin. Welcome. Hi. Can you explain who? Louis Napoleon is. And why his ascent to power as a self declared emperor? Pose such a threat to Britain. Well, he's the nephew of Napoleon by default, the famous opinion. Hey was Britain's mortal enemy for twenty years. And the fact that he's come to the throne in France is like a very big deal. Because suddenly you've got an Polian almost thrown again. And Francis reassessing itself as a world power on the ways is is an issue for Britain is going to be an enemy was ally. Said those does a real problem here. And I'll of course, wants to have placed ties to Germany, but Palmerston wants to have close to two fronts because his real concern is Russia on he doesn't want Russia France to going up against Britain. So it's all about real politic. Palmerston support for looney. Polio is ultimately his downfall in his role as foreign secretary. Why is this the one scandal that derails him for now because the people see him as being on the side of the tyrant while than on the side of the people because his support for the pain? Seems to be wrong because Louis Napoleon has declared himself. So he's basically supporting tire instead of being on the side of the revolution. Refresh people, and that's what he can't be forgiven full. How concerned was Albert that? The Crystal Palace would be viewed as he says a white elephant very concerned. I mean, right up until the moment that the crystal opened, you know, everybody was predicting it was going to be a disaster Rollet like when the Olympics were in London in two thousand twelve everyone thought he was going to be a disaster. It was any when they started that people realize is going to be the most humongous success. And and it was pretty much the same with the Crystal Palace. The Crystal Palace has public conveniences which cost. One penny to us is this the origin of the phrase spending a penny. It most certainly is. Was the Crystal Palace in the exhibition ultimately Albert's crowning glory. Yes. I think it probably was. I mean, it was such an extraordinary thing. It was such a visionary thing to do the thing that makes it so amazing is the time of kind of nationalism and insularity, you know, it's global exhibition. You know, it's a he he's the one he says, let's don't make it a domestic thing. That's make it an international thing. That's welcome all the countries in and see the best of what the world has to offer on. It's the first exhibition of its kind of the first time that you know, anyone has seen this stuff in under the same roof like this. You know, incredible innovations like the steam threshing machine, and in the there's a machine addresses, envelopes and typewriters, and when we sort of extraordinary things all in this under one roof. It would have been mined blames. It was like somebody having the internet. You know? I mean, it was it was. Thoughts extraordinarily for the time. I think an amazing number like attent that the population of Britain came to sit. Factor fiction was their plot to make a match between Heidi. And Luna pulling all that is true. But nothing came of it. Yes. I will. I will talk that. Yes. And likewise did birdie actually proposed to Heidi. Five afar. Become among Pov. I couldn't resist. Victorian, Albert or standing upon the same spot where Victoria proposed to Albert when he falls to the ground in this episode. It's eighteen fifty one still ten years off from Albert's death in eighteen sixty one is this the beginning of Albert's declining health or just symptomatic of a general exhaustion. I just wanted to fool shadow. I wanted to hint the coast his great efforts for the gresh, especially huddled him. You know, because everything seems to be wonderful. But actually, I think it did undermine his health and then factor fiction. Did he did he actually lose consciousness and is that based on an actual event? No. But those some evidence that Albert didn't typhus, but she had s- Crohn's disease, which is horrible painful disease. It's quite possible that he quite often faint. So you know, I've used us. This dramatic effect. But I just want to to, you know, play out the the the idea that, you know, everything is is not quite as KYW's. It seems to be daisy Goodwin. Thank you. So very much. Thank you. Jess. Coming up next on masterpiece. It's a romance of an entirely different character. Mrs Wilson tells the true story of actor Ruth Wilson's grandmother who discovers her husband's shocking double life after his death. Exhorted wilson. Yes. He was eighty. No, I'm his wife. Wilson.

So please text the word donate two, six, three, seven, three, five. From the center for investigative reporting in PR. This is reveal. I'm outlets will telling a story today with eve Abrahams. She reports on criminal Justice in warlords city. That's infamous for its extremely high rate of incarceration, eve hosts the podcasts on prisoned cave Hayao. All right, my friend. So where are we starting? Well, I like to dance. So let's start at this club near my house. It's called the prime example. That's Conrad Albert singing. He's the DJ, but he is also getting down swing, hips, clapping. He's wearing a flat kangol type cap. The kind old men wear Conrad is sixty six, but he hops up on his chair to peer over the booth and see how people are digging music. Yet. Conrad works as a security guard as well as a DJ. He used to be in the navy and then the merchant marines. Here's a son named prince or. Today. Yeah, he called me. Histone really changes when he's talking about his son, his son Prince Albert has been locked up for seven years. What's it like for your family to have him be away for so long. Is very, very miss. And just harsh, if you're in the yard. Hard to explain when he's done. I talked every week, so you Conrad and his family are torn apart, not just because prince in jail, but because he's in jail for so long will what did he do to get locked away for a long period of time? It's not so much what he did out. The main reason he still in jail is Louisiana's three strikes law. It's called the habitual offender statute, and usually you don't hear about it until someone's charged for some minor crime, like stealing a flat of sodas and the district attorney, our chief prosecutor, Leon cannizzaro uses the law to hammer them. The date. Bernard noble has served four years of his more than thirteen year sentence for carrying less than three grams of marijuana. Louisiana has one of the strongest repeat offender laws in the US and in New Orleans that could now put a man in prison for a possible twenty years to life for stealing candy bars to Kobe, Grimes. Rush one to this call five. Monitored or was going. I've never met Conrad son prince in person, but we talk on the phone with that again. Yeah, prince in jail, that's over five hours from New Orleans where he's from the phone is in this one, huge noisy room where he also sleeps and eats and spends his days along with over one hundred other men. We've been talking for months one day prince caught me when I was really stressed out. Not my hair down. Did you say. Relax. Have a drink. Why TV is taken by work. Sometimes you gotta live work go for. And if the collected. You said he's lucked up because of the habitual offender statue. Explain that. Well, prince was arrested a few times for drug charges, which means he's known as a multiple offender or habitual offender. And this law can now be applied to him. Here's how it works. The more times you commit a felony the harsher and harsher. The punishment gets say, you get caught with heroin like prince was the first time you face four to ten years behind bars. Then you get caught again. Now you're what's known as a double offender and you face between five and twenty years. If you get a third time you face a life sentence says the three-strikes. Yep. And people in New Orleans have been telling me I should do a story about this law for years because they say that this one law is a big reason why New Orleans has such a high incarceration rate in our DA's hands are de Leon cannizzaro. The law becomes a tool to remove people. Oil from their families and their neighborhoods for decades often for nonviolent crimes in. That's what happened to prince. Well, hold on. Let me tell you the story. Go ahead. It's all you. I got to know Princess family, including his sister Ray Linda, who calls prince by his middle name Denard the notice the one that will visit everybody. He keeps everybody. I mean, everybody from friends, the family, and everybody will say. Oh, he came see me. This was before he went, you know, whatever Ray Linda lives in a suburb of New Orleans where the airport is she has around face and her smile takes up. Most of it football basketball. He was break days is he wanted trophies. I wish I still the trophies, but they lost all that stuff. And Katrina religious says they're lucky to have family pictures. Just about right there, which her house is full of framed and cabinets hanging on the walls is muscle. The flag the door, those big ears bigger. Look just like the Albert's, our military family by the baby. Also. If so, this was like following by the. Yeah. That's what I can see farm in his father steps. Yes, yes, yes. I'm the one who got him into made. That's prince's dad again, DJ Conrad remembered him through recruiting, Doug, got the naval, be nice for Dinara. These smaller kid. He could've made a career out of it, but a few years in while station near Cuba prince hurt his back during routine operations on his ship. He was honorably discharged, but his career plans to be a merchant marine like his dad were squashed work was now really painful, and he had a family to support navy doctors prescribe painkillers, and somewhere along the way prince became addicted. And then. I street drugs locating smoke snowed one or whatever. And I didn't feel nothing when I wanted to influence. I didn't go fits my thing. The first time prince was arrested and convicted for drugs was in nineteen ninety eight distribution of marijuana. Next two thousand possession of heroin. He did five years for that one, two thousand and three possession of marijuana, four months in jail, two thousand and seven possession of marijuana by two thousand and eleven prince had five kids, and this was when his life ran headlong into the habitual offender statute. It happened during a traffic stop blue Peluso and phone drugs phone Bugum oh, and be phones? Well, one. So both of us got arrested. God, the judge chose to drug charges possession of marijuana and possession of heroin. Prince was being prosecuted in New Orleans by district attorney, Leon cannizzaro. The second man in our story. Here's how cannizzaro campaign to get the job back in two thousand and eight. I am declaring war on the criminal element of the city of New Orleans. He's made. The Kennedy era won that election and the next one, he's been the DA for ten years with two more to go. But lately, people in New Orleans are not happy with him. People have been calling DA cannizzaro extreme for years. And then in two thousand seventeen New Orleans learned that his office had been sending fake subpoenas to witnesses and also crime victims he even jailed some victims for refusing to cooperate with his office. After this became public, protesters gathered outside the criminal courthouse folksinger on the Franco brought her guitar. Come along. This next time show which said, argue, von, we'd Saad aren't you long Hugo, which said, aren't you. Along with sod. Eve, let's just back a little bit. I mean, we've been seeing lots of protests of DA's in the last few years since Ferguson when Michael Brown was killed. Yeah, all over the country. Like in Pittsburgh. On district attorney steaming. In Salt Lake City. Missile. He answers to the people if you will, the answers to both him. Now. In most states, elections are one of the very few ways to hold accountable. Another way is money users, city council hearings on the mayor's twenty eighteen proposed budget today, we'll, here's Leon cannizzaro in New Orleans city council hearing from two thousand seventeen talking, which sometimes sounds like shouting about his budget while the funding of the DA's office is shameful. The frightening revelation in the city's funding decisions is that it lacks a consistent and coherent criminal Justice policy to address rising crime rates the as your budget presentation, good include any budget presentation or just more rhetoric for the record. Yes. So we are going to making our president just wondering that's Jason Williams. Then city council president, what's out of loan is coming here and continuing with the same irresponsible fearmongering that we saw from. President Nixon years ago, the same sort of Willie Horton ISM we've seen throughout this country. The same type of fame Mong does feel like he's from bygone era buttoned up serious Mr. lawn order, his graying side, parted hair is always perfectly in place even when he's upset. We're not. He had a fear monger, anybody go look at the statistics on the crime rates in look at this because you will not turn over your data service that tissue will not turn over your data turnover data, and I'll get to data. Some of the data Williams was demanding was about the law. We've been talking about the habitual offender statute. Several council members think cannizzaro uses it like crazy, which is what I'd heard too. I'd heard he used it to lock up thousands of people. The problem is no one knows DA cannizzaro still hasn't given Williams. The data he asked for over a year ago. He didn't give it to me either, but I want. To find out how many people was he locking up with this law. The answer to that question and what happened to Prince. Albert that's coming up after the break on reveal from the center for investigative reporting and PR ex. Reveal is supported by the all new simply safe.

I'll see in your inbox. From the center for investigative reporting in PR x. this is reveal amount. Let's we'll telling a story about two men, Prince Albert is in jail, and Leon cannizzaro is the district attorney who put him DA cannizzaro use Louisiana's three-strikes law. The ritual offender statute to lock up Prince Albert for a really long sentence and reporter. Eve Abrahams has been hearing a lot that it's not just Prince Albert. It's thousands of people, so eve, what do the DA have to say about that? Well, the DA promised me an interview for the story, but he never gave it to me. I asked over and over and each time he declined, but I did talk to a bunch of people from all different sides of the courtroom. The first person used to work for Kennedy, zero as an assistant prosecutor. Gregory Thompson, how long were you a DA. Well, and regular years, seven years. But in DA years it feels like an attorney Thompson worked for Kennedy era right after he was first elected. I asked him how often the DA's office used the habitual offender statute back. Then I was ninety nine point nine, nine percent of the time. I mean, it was just it was a standard thing was deep until the lore of the office for lack of a better way of describing it. It was just the way it was simply Szekely anytime that you could use the vitual offender statute. It was the policy of the DA's office in Orleans parish to use it. I, I can't think of any instance where we. One way to think about the habitual offender statute is as a tool like a wrench or a hammer, something prosecutors can pull out of their toolbox when they need it, but it's like DA. Cannizzaro never puts this tool away. It's always in his hand for every possible case, there's his mindset that the more people we lock up in the more time that we give you the more we're going to stop the crime problem. Punish punish punish, punish furnishing, you know, harsh sentences or a deterrence, New Orleans, public defender. Danny Engelberg says, cameras office still uses the habitual offender statute all the time, and that makes guilt or innocence almost irrelevant. Instead, it's all about a defendant's past their record. It's the first thing you're looking at is the start of every analysis of case every way you talk to your client is the start of every way you talk to the prosecutor and to the judge. It's even considerations with the prosecutors making. Bail argument. So even from the moments of your arrest, it's part of the core of the case. I also spoke to senior judge of Orleans, parish, criminal court, Arthur hunter. It was the middle of summer when it was over a hundred degrees outside. He wasn't wearing a judge's robe instead black polo shirt black pants, given the heat. I had to tease him about it. This is a light black or right. This is a light black. This is not a heavy black. He said over his blaring air conditioner, the judges job is kind of like a ref between the defense and the prosecution. I asked judge hunter, what he thinks of this law takes away prompted functions of the judge which used to fashion the census that's appropriate specific for that particular person. Because when district attorney's use the habitual offender statute judges no longer decide how long a person will sit behind bars or under what conditions. Instead mandatory sentences kick in the judge has no choice. If I have someone who has mental health issues or drug abuse issues, I will debt treatments aspect that can pulling to be part of the sentence with the vendor stats as if I send us on the twenty twenty five years that won't be there. Now taxpayers paying twenty twenty five thousand a year for someone just to go away and sit. I also went to another city that's really comparable to New Orleans to find out what their DA does. Baton Rouge is ninety minutes away just up the Mississippi River, the populations of east Baton Rouge parish and New Orleans or about the same and so are their demographics around half white half black. Their DA Hillar Moore is really comparable to, for starters, he's from New Orleans just likely on cannizzaro sugarhouse you did you grow finish Tonkin. I'll be going on Wall Street. Heller more attended a private Catholic high school which actually played sports against cannizzaro is private Catholic high school. Both are white men both have been DA for a decade for me, hopeless within just another statutes. Another tool that we could possibly use DA more saves this law for when someone is really dangerous. The bottom line of everything with his public safety. Can you serve public safety with no jail or does public safety really demand Thomas jail in the ten years? He's been DA. His office has used this law sixty six times. Now let's talk about what DA cannizzaro does in New Orleans. He wouldn't tell me, but I got a hold of court data in the same ten years. Cannizzaro has used this same law more than two thousand six hundred times. I shared this number with the DA and his spokesman denied it. The DA's office only started keeping data on the habitual offender statute in two thousand sixteen. So I asked them to look at the court data. I have. I never heard back in an Email. The DA spokesman said their office uses the law judiciously against people who quote, resist rehabilitation and choose instead to commit more felony crimes against more innocent victims. The reason these two DA's ex, oh, different is because everyday has discretion to charge people. The way they want to the bottom line is if prince have been prosecuted for drug possession in east Baton Rouge or almost anywhere else in Louisiana, he'd likely be home already. From what you're saying. It sounds like DA's have the power to selectively enforce the law in a way. I mean, DA's do take an oath to uphold the law and cannizzaro always emphasizes this oath, his duty, not his discretion like here at this other city council meeting where he's defending, how he prosecutes marijuana crimes be remiss if I have what I consider to be a possible case and simply said, I'm not gonna prosecute it because I just, I don't agree with the law. That's relent that best that my call. That's what you guys do. You make the decision whether or not that should be the law or not. And if it is the law, I think I ever responsibility to prosecute it. If the facts in fact support that. In other words, I don't make the laws, I just enforce them or as we sing a New Orleans. Zeros line is I'm just doing my job. Why is he doing his job so differently than any other DA leanna because a New Orleans when it comes to the habitual offender statute, that's how it's done. And this man gesturing from a very squeaky chair can explain why is kinda Jones than. Would I call a criminal law specialists? And I heard that really, you go by biggie, biggie, be add Judy, why big you would do I not he? This is my domain right. It. Manuel wall room. It's next to his kitchen and full of paper stuck by his computer taped to the walls. This is where biggie works. He's been studying the law for decades and back in the seventies. He saw this law which had been around for a really long time. Basically come back from the dead biggie calls the law, the multiple Bill, which is one of its many names. Nobody was doing. But when Harry county can't Miguel. Loa will wait, wait, wait a minute here. Did did you just say Harry Connick the jazz singer? No, that's junior. This was his dad. Harry Connick senior when Harry count can't Miguel. He used the notable Bill to show his toughness so show that that he's gonna put people in jail, but arrested that is kind of was the DA of New Orleans for thirty years and kind of a tough on crime trail blazer. He first ran in nineteen seventy three and promised to use the habitual offender statute much more aggressively. Here's one of his newspaper ads as district attorney. Harry Connick pledges to use the power of his office to help remedy system that time and time again, returns Mitchell offenders to continue their uninhibited crimes against decent citizens. This was the nineteen seventies and crime was surging all over the country. People were scared, silicon Plato, that fear. So he brought his law back from win. When did it start? Well, the first mention I found in Louisiana is from eighteen thirty three event. I shallow third time be convicted of any crime. He shall be considered as its and be imprisoned that hard labor for life. Through this whole story of in thinking about how race is connected to all of this and that line unfit for society. I mean, it just sounds like something right out of the racist handbook, right? Yeah. I talked to a historian about that. John Bard studies, the history of incarceration in Louisiana at Tulane university. I think the fact that ritual federal laws really came into their own as part of this intensely racial is mass incarceration undoubtably speaks to as imagining the convict as a scary African American man, the kind of man who can never be rehabilitated in penitentiary and for people who couldn't be transformed, it would become a place for storage and for forced labor, forced labor while yet. And this leads us right back to biggie before he became an expert on the law. He fought in the Vietnam war where he also picked up a drug habit and. When he returned home to Louisiana, biggie, killed a man in about strawberry something he attributes to his addiction and untreated post traumatic stress. He was convicted of murder and was sent to angle state penitentiary in nineteen seventy two. The predic- ago. If you didn't big fifty pounds guys in the moldy, you will make to the whole. It is the eve. You will go big too though. They had scaled there. Hugh town, the going, you had to take yoga and put it on the scale and way. Did you ever have to go to the hall? No, though alone, the big gotten quick. This is slavery by another name. This is slavery and biggie is living through this in the nineteen seventies. I know I know historian really has stuck with me especially because at the same time biggie also became what's called a jailhouse lawyer. In fact, he helped create in golas law library. And after Harry Connick was elected DA beginning notice something guys were being prosecuted really aggressively under the habitual offender statute and given sentences like one hundred two hundred years for small crimes. People will come in to prison with life enliven. The reason was light today. You dad. Stealing a television lag dead biggie analysis and found the vast majority of guys prosecuted under this law were black. He also found there were white men conic could've gone after but didn't. In other words, conic used his discretion to punish black men more harshly. So in nineteen seventy five biggie and another jailhouse lawyer filed a civil rights suit alleging racial discrimination. They sued conic lawsuit. Yeah, forgot. I did that. But anyway, Connie was slinging the mobile so much. And people wore cool hearse to plead guilty with the ret of being out to build and sems to life sentence. So a lot of people would give the even they wanna give so biggie seeing this law courses, innocent people to plead guilty and out. Everybody said that still true in New Orleans. All the lawyers I talked to for this story which we'll get back to anyway, biggies lawsuit against conic didn't go anywhere, but he was good, jailhouse lawyer and after twenty one years in prison, he got himself out on lifetime parole. So kind of began using this law. It's a lot people up most of them black men. Then what happened state after state started passing their own harsher, three strikes laws and the prosecutors who came after Connick kept a going on that note. Guess who Harry Connick hired right out of law school to begin cystic DA limits, Leon cannizzaro, bingo. Mr. Connick was about prosecuting cases. He certainly wanted us to be successful, but you can't as there was an assistant under Connick for almost five years, then he ran for judge and one and for almost two decades. Every case he presided over came from Connex office. These are the legal waters cannizzaro learned to swim in out. I told you Kenna's used the law more than two thousand six hundred times to send people to prison. Well, ninety percent of these people have been black. Ninety percent New Orleans is only around sixty percent black. So would you tell me is nothing's really chain. From the time big was imprison. It's even worse now because so many more people have been locked up and from the inside Prince Albert sees what that looks like. Many of the bench of the saints. It's, but I have. Ended. Other people mention the habitual offender statute. We, oh, hey, similar situations and pad knows everything. And all these other people were they also from Orleans parish. Yes. Kenneth harden was one of prince's attorneys. He's a public defender. Also a sharp dresser, blue suit, pink, tie crisp white shirt Mr. Albert because of his convictions. His past failing these, and they will drug charges. He faces circumstance where the the decided to go to trial face life, face life. If you lose mandatory life, basically the appear to me of the three strikes route. April sixteen two thousand twelve Mr. hard come to me until what they was l. for we're gonna new one of those convictions in charge him as a double fell movement. They also include a number, the number that they show was tin flat Ken years. In other words, charged prince not for the three strikes just for two double Bill him. Double Bill bids fulfilled. Was this the first time you heard of the habitual offender Bill. Yes, that's that was the time I heard of wasn't expecting that prince was hoping for drug court, some sort of program to help him kick his habit and stay with his five kids. It was that's really give me the tape jail. You feel like you were being blackout more like threatening coerced into taking. The prince had to make this decision outside a cramped courtroom. People call the attic smoke. What room in knows is very narrow hallway. So a lot of conversations we had to have around the corner with as a little bit more standing. And I remember there were two, two women with him and his dad Conrad. Was there arrogance at court or the Hawn infamy. This just seem fans that he was very emotional and I remember going back and forth because I wanted to give him the time he needed to discuss this with his family. I didn't wanna be intrusive. Princess sister Ray Linda. Was there too. He's not a deal. He was only x. confide, put him in a drug program Sut light day to help him. Ills to be. There were a lot of tears at one point over calling him being in prayer about it, like literally huddling together, really just deciding what to do. This was literally all morning, and it was one point where I'll go back to Mr.. Albany seem, I t wanted to take the risk and go to trial. And then there was some points where he's like, you know what? I'm just gonna take this deal. Can you just try one more time to see if you can you know they were lower in which the and they didn't. Bowl worried about leaving my kids, my family or image thing. I'm just trying to kind of the how, but again, too. Spend the rest of this decade in jail. I remember him saying very faint, very defeated, very low voice. I'm gonna take the deal. One of the things that you have to do when you enter a plea of guilty. And Mr. I will have to do prince had to do was on the form says, I have not been forced threaten her hearse into interim his plea of guilty, and he has to initial that and tell the judge when she asked back to him. Yes, ma'am. Whatever you face between. Life by ten years, how is that not curse? How is that not forced? How is that? Not threaten, but yet we have people every single day, STAN before a judge and they are in their in this because they feel they have to void. Worse consequence. Two thousand twelve. The prince was prosecuted with Kenna's high point for using the habitual offender statute. He prosecuted five hundred people under the law. That year it has gone down since then officially. But even these numbers of people prosecuted under the law, they don't tell the full story. What do you mean? Well, the DA's office also uses this law in a different way to get people to plead guilty in cases where the law never appears on the record. For example, they'll tell someone charged with a misdemeanor crime, a petty offense, plead guilty or will bump up your charge to a felony which is a much more serious crime, New Orleans, public defender, Lauren Anderson sees this every day. If a client has for example, a simple battery charge, which is a misdemeanor, but there was some kind of object used in. We've been told, you know, well, if they don't plead to it over here, it might go across. The streets in aggravated battery, so they'd be looking at twenty to life on it. I zero six months. You're saying that they would change the charge so that they could then employ the multiple Bill? Exactly. And there's no record of this. None. It's behind the scenes. Part of verbal plenum, Goshi nations between prosecutors and defense attorneys and remember in these cases, the DA never officially charges. The habitual offender statute. His prosecutors just say they will if the defendant doesn't plead guilty. So all traces of the law just disappear. So we don't even know how many people were talking about here, right? We know cannizzaro used the law in over two thousand six hundred cases, but that number is just the tip of the iceberg. Of course, Kenneth era refused to be interviewed for this story, which is frustrating because he's an elected official. But he did offer a statement about prince's case here are a few parts that stood out to me Mr. Albert voluntarily entered into a plea agreement and received a legal sentence under Louisiana law. If he believed himself not guilty, he could have exercised his constitutional right to stand trial. Then cannizzaro said, my hope is that Mr. Albert will play himself toward programs by which to better himself and a radical, his substance abuse issues. While in prison after I requested to interview prints, he was moved from one jail to another to begin a drug program. I asked him if this was the first time in seven years locked up that he'd been in a program to treat as a diction. Our connection wasn't great. When did you do the first one. Bless your club. To Louis that was like six years into your sentence. If a while. It. It took a while for him to enter program because they didn't really have programs. Goes to read it. Also. One. People going. Just wasting time sitting in one dormitory with one hundred twenty people doing nothing. It's been seven years. You've got three to go. Has anything changed for you? A lot of town when kids being away from is done, you can't communicate the way you want McKay being when a met. I haven't had too many visits way up north. Stuttle a little work. A few times. Now, Princess asked me to give a message to his oldest son, prince, junior, these gel calls are expensive and his son can't always afford them. Anyway, prince asks me to tell us on, he misses him, and then he says, tell him, I love him and I do. Thanks eve, Abrahams in New Orleans for that story. Her podcast is called fun prison. Next Philadelphia, a brand new DA from shaking up the system might be sending the wrong message to people who commit crimes. We're soft, we're easy. You've got a friend into DA's office. That's a head on veal from the center for investigative reporting, PR ex. From the center for investigative reporting. PR x. this is reveal. I'm Elliot. So we just dug deep into the world of a very harsh prosecutor in warlords, but in some places across the US Houston, Chicago, even Mississippi newly elected progressive prosecutors are bending tough on crime and vending their policy towards mercy. Many of them have won elections with help from criminal Justice reform. Billionaire George Soros in Philadelphia. Soros spent almost one point seven million dollars to back the campaign of a man who never prosecuted the case in his life. The attorney of Philadelphia, Larry Pressler. Reveals lower star. Chesty has a story of a total outsider trying to change how justices done more. More in a slid co working space, right by city hall about forty fresh-faced assistant. Prosecutors are meeting their new boss thrill z. well, here some of you I know from interviews. Some of you have never met DA. Larry crasner is pacing back and forth with a coffee Cup trying to convince the new hires in this room. Some just out of law school that almost everything they've heard about being a prosecutor is wrong. The obligation of a prosecutor to seek Justice cannot simply be defined as if this is a sports of it. It's not just Pat yourself on the back by saying, charged more charges than ever charge more defendants than ever charged the highest charge. In every case, we got more years, we must be keeping everybody safer crasner so adamant because for decades, Phillies jails have been packed with thousands too many people. Most of them African American. We don't. We don't reverse this insane money fire of mass incarceration before he was elected DA crasner was a career civil rights attorney. He's defended black lives matter activists. He sued the police department. Dozens of times he tells the new recruits, his goal to send fewer people to jail to end mass incarceration in Philly entirely. Some of them are Notting along, but the old guard prosecutors working at the DA's office when crasner took the helm, last winter, they were a harder sell. We carefully vetted people who we thought might never be down for this mission. And we asked them to leave and they left. The purge was on full display is the file boxes kept rolling out of the DA's office thirty one staffers including a number of mortar squad, prosecutors, high-ranking deputies and division chiefs were among those terminated. His local ABC news footage showed lawyers, mostly older, white men, dragging boxes of paper through the January slush. Then in February crasner told me came the document that would come to be known as the memo. We have laid down policies that have caused a little bit of commotion, which Poynton different direction crasner had bullet pointed his new policies in an internal staff memo which got leaked. It's a long document here. Just a few of those bullet points for most non violent crimes. His prosecutors should offer the lowest possible sentence. They should stop charging anybody arrested for marijuana possession. They should stop charging most prostitution cases. Shoplifters stealing small amounts should just get a ticket. The idea was to stop jailing people who are homeless or poor or who have problems with drugs and get them help. Instead. Leandra attack, oh, runs crasner. Charging unit there. The lawyers who decide which cases to charge and what charges to bring after the police arrest someone. She says, a lot of people freaked out when they saw this memo. They act like crasner was gonna, fling, open the jail doors and let everybody go, but she didn't get what the big deal was charging small amounts of marijuana anymore. Whoop, do. It's true that the city had already decriminalized small amounts of marijuana. Few years ago, there were huge. Citywide initiatives already underway to reduce the jail population, and they were working. It seems so obvious and it's not like everybody was all on fire to prosecute the small amount of marijuana cases or the prostitution cases. But in the day to day grind of hundreds of cases, crasner is new policies, shook things up. They were followed, especially in the beginning of unevenly. Mark Holden is the policy director at the Philly public defender's office. But the very fact that a good number of DA's were actually doing what Mr. crasner laid out in in that memo was truly remarkable. I mean, we just had never seen district attorney's willing to take it upon themselves to decline a case that they think they could actually prove beyond a reasonable doubt. Crasner office was throwing away easy convictions. At least that's how Richard Sachs's it who's a public defender masquerading as the elected DA. Sachs was a prosecutor in Philly from more than thirty five years. He retired in twenty seventeen right before crasner won the primary. He says, crasner office is sending a clear message to people who commit crimes were soft worries. He, you've got a friend in the DA's office. Sex told me that he wanted to be wrong about crasner. He wanted to believe that crasner policies wouldn't make Philly more dangerous city. But sex has been watching the numbers. There's been an increase in shootings already a hundred more this year than this time. Last year, even though crasner hasn't stopped prosecuting, violent crimes and never said he would sacks blames him word on the street, really does get out there. And people see that it's a kinder, gentler DA, and. That message, I believe in my heart is manifesting itself in all hell, breaking loose. Since crasner took office. There's been lots of whispering, discontent some right into my ear, but most people are reluctant actually talk on tape. The police department didn't wanna talk to me about how officers feel about arresting people only to have the DA's office, not charge them. The police union sent along a bland. One paragraph statement saying they look forward to working with crasner a guy who works for a big clothing store here doing security really wanted to talk, but his stores corporate office wouldn't let him. He told me shoplifting is a constant problem. He's still catches people stealing. But now after the police coming arrest them, the DA says to let them go with a ticket when somebody does end up in custody prisoners, prosecutors sometimes withdraw their case. Anyway, the guy said one habitual shoplifter came back to his store and stole again, so fast that he still had the cheese sandwich from jail in his backpack. This summer, I asked crasner office for some data. I wanted to know eight months into his term. What were they actually doing where the police still arresting people for prostitution shoplifting and was his office turning all those cases away. His press guy handed me some statistics about five minutes before I sat down with crasner for an interview. So I've just got this and I have other questions for you, but I'm curious, you know, what did you was the first time your office has kind of done at tally of the cases you're accepting and declining in this way? This is these are the first metrics I have seen. We have general sense of what we were doing because we passed certain policies that could not help, but push us in this direction. But these metrics are the first that I've seen. And so for example, they reflect the fact that we are no longer charging sex workers with crimes because simply put, we've you them for the most part. As victims we on the piece of paper, I could see that overall crasner office had declined to prosecute about seven percent of the cases. The police brought them. That means that the police had arrested someone in each of those cases and each time the DA's office had said, no, let them go. We're not charging them under the previous DA that rate hovered around two or three percent two and a half percent explanation rate is a rubber stamp. That means whatever the police want is what I will do. Crasner is office is on track to charge about two thousand fewer. We'd possession. Prostitution and shoplifting cases this year. That's compared to what the DA's office did in two thousand seventeen two thousand fewer cases. So what about all those people? The people crasner trying to help by not putting them in jail, Diane, I love you to MIR. We're talking about what it's like in jail. This is Amanda. I met her in Kensington and Abraham in north Philly. People are selling buying injecting drugs out in the open. I'm just gonna use first names for the women. I talked to their since they all had outstanding fines and warrants. Amanda says she's been arrested. Twelve times for prostitution and told me the cops had sometimes been rough with her arresting or so many times also just seem like a waste resources. I'm I think the whole prostitution thing. I think it's a great idea with them not charging anybody with anything. This is what I had expected to hear. Then I ducked into the backyard of a recovery house, a place for women trying to stop using drugs to sit down with another woman named shantelle. I asked shantelle what did she think of crasner decision to stop charging most prostitution cases? I don't think that's a good idea. Shantelle stopped using heroin and moved into this recovery house a few weeks ago, but she's been caught up in shoplifting and doing sex work to pay for drugs for years. She kept saying that Phillies opioid problem is out of control, especially in this neighborhood, and it is a big problem in Onder stand that people don't want to touch it and get involved. But if we avoid it, it's not just going to go away is not just going away does not charging shoplifting and prostitution seemed like avoiding the problem to you. Yes, absolutely. Yes, absolutely. I fully condoning my baby gave your shantelle is very clear. She is not saying jail is the answer, but the idea of getting ignored by law enforcement as flawed as the system is that feels to shantelle like people in power or saying, we don't care what happens to you and saying, well, we just can't keep sending you to jail. So here you go. Just keep living in. Like death, you know, it's cool. Just keep living in hell. Everything will be fine with no way out. I told crasner office what Chantelle said, press person sent me a statement saying they do want people like her to have a way out. They see sex workers as victims who need help, and the DA's office can help them. If somebody's been convicted few times before for prostitution crasner policy is to charge them. And then instead of sending them to jail, put them in a diversion program where they get connected to rehab and counseling. But crossers office also said charging is really not the best way to help people like shantelle because that can leave them stuck with a criminal record bottom line. It should be easier to get help without ever getting arrested or charged at all. Crasner maintains that the other crimes he's declining to charge, especially marijuana possession just fall into the category of dumb by declining, the prosecution of dumb we can put more and better police resources and prosecution resources into the prosecution of serious crimes, tear apart society, hyper violent crimes, sexual assault gun play among people involved in gangs and Warren group's. We focus on that, and that's what we wanna do. Prisoners got about three more years in his term three years to prove to the city that he can put fewer people in jail. And at the same time, find his own brand of toughness for the most serious crimes. That story from reveals Lor star chess game in Philadelphia. Lowest are chess key and Kevin winter edited the show.

And the even if he was eight thousand miles away he was going to focus on some eight thousand mile away American jobs, even before he left. He he wanted to make painfully clear what the purpose of this trip was going to be he held a press conference and said, I want to be able to say to the American people when they ask me why you spent time in India, aren't they taking our jobs. I want to be able to say actually, you know, what? And then it was what felt like a long pause. And it was the president was considering saying, you know. What do you?

Night night to the he was going to draw a penis somewhere. Okay. I'll have another question. Retorted that simply that they had it for an entire year without noticing it. Which really makes you think can anyone truly say they are one hundred percents. Sure, they don't have a massive names on the roof. Roy. Now, what was the last time you were up on your roof? A penis could be there right now. How does the lesson? Go love north at the penis on your neighbor's roof until you show that you don't have an even bigger pain from us. A sophomore obscene fables the ones he wrote when he was drunk at night. How about you? Can you be absolutely sure? You don't have a penis on your roof. Absolutely. Sure. Boss account verify. No penis. Shaped aircraft have landed on my roof by mistake thinking that was a penis cross pad. But I guess, you know, there's another way of looking at this John a ton gentle Avon shingle question about whether of Pena's, Mark. This could be a fertility symbol, you know. Maybe this lead just wanted to have a younger brother or sister to play with. He was trying to summon the sentence of some primeval divinity to bring fruits to his mother's womb. Who knows all I do know Jonas at when my wife, and I were trying to get pregnant for the first time we painted dangle onto nuggets on our phone. Unfortunately, told me we're living in downstairs flat. So we had some very angry. Neighbors me upstairs. Fly also goes to replace their living room carpet with a little bit less obscene. The parents claim that this is their son's doing, but he's not there to defend himself from this charge. Could be stitching him up. Let's like Colombo for a second day. Because this case might be trickier than initially appears could it be they are framing their own son to protect themselves from the truth that they paint you a massive Pena's on their own Ruth. Our hope he no one would notice. Oh, what's this most supernatural occurrence aliens of being set to regularly swoop down in the middle of the noise and create mysterious crop circles, perhaps they're branching out? They finish their crop circle. Face now, experimenting with roofs and penises off got another explanation for this journal. Now, I think the boy is guilty of this challenge of finding of massive famous on his parents roof think what ace Joan is. It's the. The pitch markings from the old English sports of the roof game, which is an early form of football originated on the roof of eight and college chapel in the sixteenth century. Now, the story goes on infestation of dry rot resulted in the discoloration of the roofing timbers on the chapel in the shape of the aforementioned Anatolia and during the decade of flooding. The school was supposed to move the entire school operation onto the chapel roof now, and I started playing the roof game using this kind of pitch mocking nature created on their roof. I know in the roof game one team defense, the natch end named after two semi circular shapes one in which look like an ecclesiastical natch, which is a two headed set to use by school chaplains in medieval times, this team was known as the not just now the other team defended the end nearest the chapel's main bell or the Belen where the Troy foggy at grown bountifully around the outline of a spat bell that it'd be left on the roof off to the school Campanella tea society. Degenerates into alcoholic save fumbling homosexualism traditional at school such as he so that lay to Abell left unattended on the reform of stormy night this team, of course, it was known as the ballons now the attacking side how to use the slope of the roof Toco Abol, which isn't originally might from the stomach of the schools least popular boy around the defenders up alone narrow center of the pitch. This process was known as shopping list. The boys would roll up their school gowns or shafts at us a slings to impart extra spin on the ball. Once the team had reached the end of the main central portion of the patriots players would shout the word shaft to signal. The shopping phase of the attack was complete on the call of shaft, they tacking team would attempt to school for the balance this involved scratching images or tagging each member of Najib defense with the bull Walston the net sown for them. School revived request too young. Abellan's wrestle that offend is out of the area leaving an attacking Najef with the ball in the auto zone. Now. Of course, neither sought schooled.

Exactly Anyway Good Morning Katie how we doing how is your ought party last night as the brewers are now officially haute. Says the Kennedy would say of the Major League Baseball Playoffs Dr. Dario non, Armand, jumped in kind of commandeered it so. Which is fine with me. So they. You know they entertained everyone while I set back drank was boy he watched game. On the second. Dario. went way too hard at some silly thing that didn't really matter. Wow. That's new. We did all the effort. Yeah but still he he insisted on winning some fake competition for the CHATTY EST on Zoom Party no. No we didn't do that. I. Mean it wasn't a competition but Dario was. He thinks everything is but dr so Dario jumps in right and he's up in at Miller Park. So He's getting the live as it happens feed. All I think he I think and we were all streaming and even everybody else someone's on Roku someone's on the APP. So it's always a little bit off. But. He did take great joy in letting everyone know what was happening eight seconds before it actually happened. To the point. Of course yours. Joy In that. Yes. He would. Leverage is the fact that he sits in a slightly privilege privileged class of everybody else he's not with the peons. He's got the stuff ahead of time any wants to leverage that that's that's perfectly brand for Dario Melendez, which is fine. Fine with me. So we just sat around we sat around we had some cocktails. We we had some fun. But went to bed one but so he wants to do. Yeah, we're probably going to do more of these, but I'm not going to be in charge of. 'cause I could've easily gone to band at eleven. Game last night, it was such. These last few games it was so different than. The last two seasons and we were talking about this through and I were talking about on the show is that the last two seasons? It was like all right down to we got this. We got this no big deal down five. We got this mom here comes here comes Yelich Nah. No big deal y'all ducks in the pond. Here we go, and now it's was just like. When does our she'd come up? was. CPI. But when right in what? When Ryan Healy? Is Your cleanup hitter. EU Don't deserve to go on I mean the white flag right there. You're talking about a team that at that point was duct tape and chicken wire, and you know bread ties, it was put together with whatever you could put it together with and they still were they were in it last night they were in it two nights ago against a out that. They were in it. They. Were in I, take no shame from I don't think any brewer fancher take any shame from how they perform these two games. But you're right the last three years and of course, the team will say you know when they start pitching season tickets for next year, they like come see the brewers they made the playoffs three straight years. You know the fine print is well three years ago was a thrill ride of a lifetime. Two years ago was a one and done bitter disappointment of a game that was in hand and then dropped, and then this year was a should've never been there. Playoff. season. In which you had nobody left by the time the playoffs we're not the twins. They have not won a series in the playoffs since two thousand two I understand that but it's been a pink pink pink stair step down last years the last time the twins won a playoff game was two, thousand, four there when the first game series against the Yankees and they haven't won and just to give you a point of reference two, thousand, four was three years before the iphone ever came into existence wild. So think about that. There's a years of. Years of absolute failure but you know what? You can do this it's twenty twenty. That's all you have to say that's twenty twenty. You get a hall, pass the whole world anything you do you get a hall pass Not. Everything. Twenty twenty. He's GonNa Twenty Twenty Y'all as I like to say that's exactly it and so. Whatever you know. SUITOR sent out a tweet yesterday morning basically apologizing to brewer nation now grant. Wisconsin Nice and everyone's like Oh. Don't worry about it. You know we're proud. You know yeah. Did a good job. You know we appreciate it. It's twenty. You know so it it's here Geneva casserole. Over to the house. and. It's like come on Josh. Josh. You do your Wisconsin accent which is course born and raised warned bread. have. Come on Charlie Barons. Come on jump in there. Christ. It nailed. Hell I grew up. I grew up north highway twenty nine I went to school go or went to nobis. So as not went to school to nobis crate why? No? All those guys. went to Nabis. But the Wisconsin nicest. So true that you know there's no need for suited to apologize. Now there's there's not. It's like in when you're playing in a partner match you and your guy, and you're playing terrible you, Mrs Short Pot like Oh my God and you buy instinctively apologize but I always say this and one guy played with meteors go game. This line goes unless you did it on purpose don apologize nicely. Miss that three foot on purpose. Trust me. I would never do that I just I'm nervous and I suck. He's. Unless. It's a Calcutta, you get big money in the team you're playing against. And you're right that it would be slightly different situation. But no, I mean sooner unless you did that on purpose which I know you didn't you don't need to apologize. It's. Just hope they get it fixed. It's like what the hell is with Yelich. That's the one thing that is the big. That's this story. Big meatball right there. What was this a one year? Pandemic. Sure. They get. It probably was whole monitoring it. You just got done saying both of you that it's twenty twenty and that you can use it as an excuse for everything. Oh. Yeah. So why worry about Yelich? Doesn't that know him to. was sure no one's going to get that of seven because at twenty twenty, but you still want to know what the Hell's going on. Someone. Said last night at zoom call. They think it might be that niece still. Don't. You always blame injuries even though there's very little to connect a knee injury with being unable to hit a curve ball suddenly unless it's your base, you know you base your legs where you're stepping and things like that right and you could be compensating for something. You know who knows I don't know I'm not a physiologist. You know he's under contract until twenty, twenty, eight now and a deal that escalates up to twenty, six, million a year pretty quickly by them given that he's only in his age two, thousand, eight season he could be a lucrative trade. Oh, it's. About that, don't even go there this early I go there now if you. Have let's package him with Rogers and Janas. Why don't we just feel at three way bigger outdid altarum them gather. Around. Do. You remember baby yes. Do you remember the night of the three kings? Things at at Pfizer a year and a half. Oh Yeah. It was rogers and yellow watching Jaanus. Thing on the court And not all three raining MVP's but rogers former multiple time. MVP. VP's up in in the suite, the basketball court MVP, the night of the three kings and Danika. Up Don't you did. You see did you see her quote? She finally came out and spoke out about the Bronco Oh. Man Oh boy. Oh is one of these. Do I need to buckle up? Oh, wait hold on a second wrong one here. Here we area are we got her quote was something to the effect of. That quote here again where she says you now I got I've learned a lot. This she said it on. qube. So there you go. Oh my God. That is somebody Josh Qube paid her issue related Zhanna 'cause they're like look we're dying here. WE'RE GONNA, lose all our money on this venture. Do Do something to get a headline plays and Anything to get people to Download Qube of dying here, go ahead. So her court was the next guy has his work cut out for him because my intuition my standards boundaries, my wants and needs are off the charts because I've gotten to know me so much more. So it's going to be so much more narrow and specific and I think that's the challenge with the relationship where do I sign up? Sign. Yeah, that's what I want after. He sounds fun. I want to go into more lockdown. Tell me that isn't gonNA. Walk up traffic her. Get her walk through that list that laundry list of non negotiable demands. So My My standards. My boundaries. My once. And my needs my wow. By away wants and needs they're different. A is what you're saying a want. You don't need a need you need a one is just I want this as well. Yeah. Yep. Intuition Yep. Now, applying that Rogers raised all of those standards. When she says, the next guy's going to have a lot of work cut out for him. Or is she saying that she realized how much Rogers trampled on her boundaries hers? Right, does it really matter look guys in trouble? No matter. What do we really have to know the psychology behind it, but it's funny that we get to this thing because my wormhole. Is All about this is one that I stumbled on. It's unbelievable. With again Ika. Thoughts are all right. No problem. Save segue. A smooth segue. Ron Right I just have to advocate. Quote here to go go ahead and I said this at the beginning of the last relationship I was like look you either grow together one grows and one dozen or you girl apart I ever experienced growth Reading reading tiffany check change. You say the next guy. None. Kaby. The next is going to be he's GonNa. Be a bull rider in a Rodeo it's five seconds to the bell an out. Is GonNa. Realize this is an unconquerable woman with needs that cannot possibly be met. So I'm going to get in for a fun time at a good time but not a what longtime. Oh, that's right that kid. Taking off the fire suit don't look at me, right Basically basically Denecker has has signaled the fact that she's knock it off any man willing to meet her demands. So it's going to get a string of guys that come in tourists and leave as soon as the kitchen gets too hot. Okay. Moving right along except weekend wormhole except for this guy. So what happens is now I'm at the point of the airborne grading Selby Computer for eight or ten hours, and then the algorithm spins and that's how I discovered this stuff I got it running in the background this rhythm. The Algorithm of Hulu or Netflix or whatever. It just recommend stuff while the fact that this was recommended should be embarrassing but this show called marrying millions. And it's all about. Like peace that people would no money who fall in love with people with a lot of money. And I don't care about the other couples but this couple I do it's a guy named Brian in this woman, his allergy lane or what I don't know what is going. Careful, Gillette. But you. Just world. It's Gillette. She's like working million. She's worked. She's were millions and this guy is worth nothing. You GotTa play this and listen to this guy. Is. Fine. I had a one man party.

S2 Episode 5 - Leon and the Royal Albert Hall

"Hi there and welcome to another episode of leading James Ashton. This time we talked Moroccan meatballs and musical ICAL extravaganzas. My first guest is John Vincent. He's the CO founder and chief executive of Healthy Fast Food Chain Leon their fixture on many British high streets and are now expanding pending fast in the US alongside. John Is Craig Hassle. He's the chief executive of the Royal Albert whole a landmark London venue of course it hosts four hundred performances in the main auditorium auditory every year and attracts one. Point seven million visitors. You can read more about both of them in our episode notes as this podcast invites to leaders to compare notes about how they run their organizations with supported by Saxton Bam file the executive search firm and leadership advisor find out. More about this press' at Saks dot com. I began this conversation. Sation asking Craig about first impressions when he walked into the album. Well the first time I went to the venue was to put on Romeo and Juliet and ballet of course normally is in theater not in a big space level hall so seeing the Robert Hall and thinking how on Earth will ballet work work here was a bit. I don't think it was great. It works really well and the best thing was the audience absolutely loved. It wasn't ballet audience. An audience of all sorts of all walks walks of life and they had the best time so great. But what about when you go in and then you'll you're well. It was even better. I mean I've worked as a promoter hiring the rabbit hole and also so as a car producer with the whole coming in as the Wrexham. I knew the whole very well. I was a bit donor because I hadn't run a venue before it only run performing. What's companies and I always used to? Well we're the ones that do all the work we make the sets and costumes. We do all the rehearsals. We hire the act of the dances and songs on. What does the venue to vendors turns on the lights off planes? They do a lot more. Because there's only so much you can change the whole it's been there for almost one hundred and fifty years is Joel purpose protect the whole promote arts and science. So you have to put your modern spin on that brief. If you like. It's funny you say that there's actually quite let you can change the great thing with Robert Hall is it's founded founded on the a vision from Prince Albert. who was very clever guy? The German who came to live in England married Korean Victoria. He was a visionary fellow. He had this whole idea. Eight to democratize learning an arts and science and entertainment on all sorts of things which is why he built the Vienna and the Netra Museum and Imperial College and and the Abbott Hole. So now what I WANNA do is is go back to the vision and say what what was Albert doing why that he wanted to build this place. What was it about and so making the whole more? Oh accessible more open more available to everyone is something that I'm really can't do. And Albert would love it. He'd be bored. I channel prints out. Almost we're told his his body were joe mode about you because one hundred and fifty years of heritage you have got fifteen. There's always an element of mission. I think I mean you. You never set up Leon Justice L.. Food did you. So what did you say. Now it turns out it was this. Maybe grammar saying it was to help humankind fundamental journey to wholeness. I'm not sure I quite in other words it out which I guess. That's help people connect with themselves. Each other in the planet was basically. Why why why we did it and subsequent subsequent reading it turns out that that is what most philosophies most religious man's fundamental or human clients fundamental journey so oh? I didn't know quite doing that but I think that's vaguely what we're doing. Sounds a bit grand reference L.. But actually I need to find out more about prince album so I didn't the history So yes I'm where in the tradition. I think I think we're talking at least by the end of this recording there should be the makings of Leeann within the Album Delay Joan. How're you doing on that mission then because it is equal challenge? You're growing an incredible rate I. We're growing. Yeah but I I. I think possibly we've had an in observable terms an impact on others are doing as well so I I often say that actually. Our biggest biggest impact is in changing McDonald's. If I think about some of the sustainable initiatives some of the desire to make food a a little bit better for you create environments that may be connect people a bit more. I think we've had something of an impact on on those Those Houdini Hennequin who ran zero. It was the architect of the turnaround. Here he worked with Steve easterbrook. Who worked for him in the UK is now the global person and then hand had any said anything you see in Donald today until this isn't entirely true love exoneration? He said everything seems that they were trying to change. Just because we stood in front of Karlovy Street and we said this is what good fast food so I think probably probably our impact is being as much on people across the world. Even they were owning six countries. I think probably been convened directing away. But I think it's the question more about us. Yeah we on sustainability. We were well ahead of the curve in terms of plastic screen and as you all of our restaurants powered by green energy where we by the energy which is the majority of been well ahead of the curve in terms of moving away from me to plants. I think well ahead of the curve. In terms of sustainable fishing policies are chairs the Council for sustainable business for the UK government hinder. And I wrote in the school few plan for the UK which finally tried to. And I think he's having some success. Join out food across. All the food happens in a school and that has a dramatic impact the schools of the UK in terms of the atmosphere in schools assaulted attainment. So I think probably Leon is just one manifestation one leg one chap- to really of the of the. We're trying to make more broadly. We're not Jesus but you know we're very naughty boys and girls and in the case of Allegra we're trying we do know why. What is the thing that people are will be picking up this winter? What's the the new food on the hot in using the hot new thing? Okay so I think that we have two things particular popular at mytalk. One is the the new gluten nuggets. So we've introduced and the other was Vegan Burger so I I think we're seeing a massive bifurcation of people that on the one hand want to eat Vegan We've got great after. Say it takes. A DOC is unbelievable. Say Are we taking taking a love Burger. And we're turning into festively. A Ho Dot grout Burger. Because it's GonNa be an oboe but with hoisin sauce cucumber in the Vegan bug. It is unbelievable. So I think I think people are going to be Eighteen and I think that we're going to see a massive bifurcation of people. Like you Jeremy Clarkson on the one hand saying I'm going to carry on eating beef. Thanks very much and the other tribe which is going to continue acceleration towards veganism. So that's sort of the big bifurcating transparency. Next on into the Rota to this a craig. The One hundred fiftieth. Anniversaries is hoping into view the album as well as interpreting you know getting to know Prince Albert as you have done you have to think. How do we celebrate? This added. We get ready for the big birthday looking at the numbers. There's nothing this is not a burning platforms. Nothing going wrong. This four hundred shows in the main auditorium every year. You probably can't get any more in. We can't really put more shares on the staff would kill me if we tried lawsuit at four hundred one shows and that's with four weeks dark for set up some things so when we total weeks entitles a few days even their four discrete weeks. So there's one week for the survey set up one week for the problem so I know this I mean we just saw the plans ends for sex show in January and it has a massive tank of water and a water curtain and tons and tons of kit. Come certain one week. So one fiftieth. We basically creating the high as the coming in and I have gradually changed the mix since I've been at the whole to do a few more shows ourselves just so we can increase quality and we can have control over the artists that kind of thing. I mean. We'll always have of course the proms forever. We hope yet circle Soleil we hope forever lot of the Rock and pop acts but again back on vision we want to have more events going into the future which are about debate and discussion. It's interesting he talked about the way. The Planet's coming in the run-up hold she'd be the goatee space for discussion of these things. That's come and talk about climate change and talk about veganism diets or quantity quantity or a place in the world forum. It's a floor space. So is what parliament parliament. Yeah it was design a Democratic Space London Senate which could move the house upon onset steady. Oh problem with vermin. Yes yeah okay. So it's not necessarily do more about doing better indifferent because I was surprised to see that the science sciences and the mission as well so the planet and so on you can do more especially in the challenge is how do you make a great eight to vent. This is good as the teenage. Trust Week of up councils upstarts Emma Challenge. We have its challenges that everybody wants to hide their overhaul. So it's it's a buyer's market as far as which insane so we're able to to curate the highs and we can say look that's great but it's not good for us and the moment silence on the shows that are on there we can curate but we do want to go more woah towards a debate discussion and the signs agenda is tricky because we need to sell five and a half thousand tickets to fill the arena. Now there aren't that many scientists non-french into the scientists out there that can fill five thousand savings on pluvial permit signs of looking now at an astronomy conference coming up in twenty twenty one which would have astronauts and pop singers who are scientists. So I went named names confirmed yet but there are surprisingly a lot of popstars mathematicians and scientists Bronco on Koa. Brian Cox by may be free and because of the you can hang a lot of things down on Stein that the signs but it's interesting historically online spoke whole right. We had the first public demonstration of electric lighting. The rollout wow winston listen churchill at the first televised address prime minister suffer jets protesting so love walking round because my wife presents the problems. I I love walking around and seeing those old posters of goes right from the problems or Elton John to the launch of the vessel. Yeah exactly so craig you all the new you can still interpret it and push out in different different genres and doing things we can and really important point is that we're not a museum or mausoleum the whole was always a place where contemporary stuff was happening. So we we like to say history is coming. Look out because amazing stuff's going to happen happen. The next hundred fifty years the Royal Albert Hall so we encourage young bands and emerging artists. Me Hey do workshops with. Dj's Pretty WanNa make sure that we remain relevant as a place as the problems have very relevant. People think the problems he just the last night the problems problems whether you know he. The director the promise of brilliant guy came from blind born and he will typically always commissioned a new piece of music for the first night of the promise which is fantastic. NFL young comprises. He Champions Women conductors. He's he's Britain so the problems is great for us new music in the future music but also other parts of the year so your plan is to keep getting bringing the world to alcohol and and John Increase in your take on to the world you know you mentioned sick markets. It seems like there's a real focus on the US. You have to go home at some point the big well. Do you know what the America is. A complete startup isn't it you know you have to have a founders mentality to the homophobes foods kamini shops to open. We opened eleven months ago. And we've got another six that we are about to open we're all in DC also Washington. Yes and Going with wild but we have to just water the plan. As if it's a new little equal say I said look. We're not taking an oak tree from the UK and trying to plant in the sort of America hoping that it will Will spread gotta start not just with the economy with a sequoia tree with the sequoia seed snake oil. Whatever whatever you yeah working with the acorn analogy so yeah but we have to grow fast in America because I think the lines between consumer concepts and how people see businesses he's really blurred in America is in if apple isn't doing very well as a business people that WANNA use their iphones such a nexus access between the kind of how fast you grow? How successful you'll seem to be as a business barefoot people kind of feed on success in America? So you've got to demonstrate growth which is interesting when you know. We're trying to in a way that sustainable but you've got a Nisha when I think about Leon in London where we are. I don't think it was fast food. I think it was convenient food. That is healthy. It tastes good so I would think in in the states you could you. Could you talk about a nation. We separate to the foster. And there's a real potential at holy owning that or do you use franchisees. Initially were wholly owning because we wanted to be able to say control. I don't think I'm ever to to do our best to wrap. Our arms around demonstrated franchisees that we can do it because that was my next question is is you know I was crazy for you. Coming surprised you only have I think fifty old outlets in the UK seems to be all the right street corners. But then you go to the states and then you really have to work out. I guess to preserve this culture. You've nurtured. How'd how'd you do so? I think you do it by having Someone like Nikki who we do have who's had people who has done here who can re read replicate the culture as Steve Head. The is an amazing guy from the point of view of coaching positively with reputation him. He's gone over there. So you know we. We take in the expense required to really invest vest locally. But then you have to recognize. I think that the cover of Vogue magazine look different in India. Different from how does in the UK doesn't America so in having the same brand positioning. You actually need to adapt how you look at the context and the soil changes that Ashley. Actually the plant is going to grow up different. So that's why I'm constantly trying to work how what needs to be replicated because it's Liam or what needs to change because Leon in the American environment needs to look like this so that's that's that's the magic cannot that's the kind of magic formula is important trying to understand can still be fun. The bigger you get because of your about revenue is about one hundred million at the moment and your you've been growing at twenty five percent still be fun. Can you still taste all the new menu items and all that stuff or does it have to become muscle it I find as a disruptor and we just into this exit sort of work with Come from chemistry of three communities of disrupters scaling doesn executor's and the scale is from the ones that missed out because they somehow look a bit boring. We've understood Actually as we grow me as a disruptor having more scales scales around me actually makes me perform better on a bigger stage if I can use the an album on not stuck in A. I'm not stuck in the provincial theatre. Almost all overhaul so for me the leverage I get from having the scale that I have is actually more liberated rates in the is constraining at the moment who knows what's down the road for the moment. Having a fantastic had marketing had food helps etc.. He's actually she quite liberating to me to have a skate. Those scales working with me. That was far better than your tree. Analogy I'll thank. I come back to you is. They're fun in allowed in the organizations that you run me. What is your style of leadership? I try to as much as possible. Keep my hands out of the the the business I try and lead the team. It's tricky when you come from not prophets in smaller companies. We used to organizing the tour during the marketing. Now Short. Same John You you want to get your hands dirty. But you've got to trust your team so I think the trick is hire people that you trust as you're saying and let them do their job. Obviously we'll always have a view but just trying to let them do the job and and also accept that. I'm not always right. Sometimes it's subjective and it has to be fun we putting on shows ultimately uh-huh and in the past I've put on shows that's my that's my job and that's to entertain people and educate my surprise at many entertained. So if it's not fun something's going wrong. I think people associate she ate a seriousness with belts Jillian. We need a serious platt an aggressive business plan Jordan amazing for but actually there's there's sort of a mixed view on the on the alcohol and you referred to previous interviews. I mean people do associated with a great night out the big extravaganza and so on. But it's quite an intimidating building and people would necessarily wandering there for coffee in the middle of the day. I think is something you'll trying to trying to change that I mean and we. I'm working with a very imposing Victorian building with twelve doors. I challenge is to find money before you like. It doesn't matter. It's a part of the plan I'm working on now. Is this again. Back to the democratisation principles of Prince Albert. I opened the building up so actually opened the doors during the day. Come in for a coffee for church. There's exactly Make the ground floor gallery show off the archive and common enjoy. It do the workshops and bringing lots more kids and involve the local community. And so we're doing a lot of work in that area operationally in programming wise As she wanted to do with the BBC which is fantastic. I uncalled relaxed Prom where we do a concert with an orchestra and it's for people with autism children and we say to the audience. He may make as much noise was Eli brings friends the the stewards down the doors in case anyone's free except for that don't freak out because their music is brilliant and and I get letters from from parents. I was always terrified to bring my autistic son onto a concert because he makes too much noise. A came along with Robert Hall had the time I felt innovator comes normally think goodness Joel. philosophically is really important back to you. John what's the thing. What's the thing we really worry about? The could go wrong. Something about supply chain or whatever. Just not worry I worry about. I really worry about food safety and allergies and obvious obvious reasons these papers in the last couple of years. You'd work out why I'm so concerned about it. I'm concerned about it because unfortunately distri however much you Focus on safety issue number one priority. it's not you things this guy role and so I've got in trouble six months or so ago what I was saying. You know what Maybe he's actually. He'll the things that we do at Leland to make Kosovo as safe as possible please come audit them yourself. Please come and share your thoughts on them. Hey the things that still can go wrong any system and I think I need to be able to communicate it to everybody that there are still things that can go roaming any well money system and um so I I I. I sincerely lie awake at night worrying about that. That kind of thing. I would say having having been played hall in someone coming to somewhere like Leonardo swear And and having having an allergic reaction. That's probably the thing that I worry about most. Okay Craig well we live and die by I think all the NPS net promoter score. So we we do this qualitative the questionnaire after you come into your show and we ask you about the show we ask you about the toilets about the food about the way you were treated. How comfortable is your seat was hot or cold enough in How is the sound everything and we tracked that every every performance and we will use that to improve the sound or improve? The restaurants improves the toilets and for whatever we can do. Interestingly since I've been at two and a half years Rick Ashley has scored the highest on the NPS highs in the toilets as a as a complete nightmare going to give him up. All your good value. John would you recommend me to a friend would do you in the next booth like that. Yeah that's that's the thing John. Let's go back to the beginning. If I could. And the most interesting thing I've discovered about going I was involved in the creation of that promote score pain. I really love it. It's very hard I should say it's interesting isn't it of Seventies. Actually quite good is there. It's not seventy percent. No no no. No it's off off the detractors. Does you take away the neutral people who take the bottom six you take away the you take neutral post and it's the the netting off of the positive and negative and it's really fussing back to the question John. I mean being in the beginning of net promoters score. And you've you've married very well you so I was gonna say back in time. Huron can I call them. Discos listen very clever. Join US on your website. It's always it's it's you not only not only did them with another overachiever. Richard Reid from innocent drinks. Yeah did we start with rent co please I I think I was. I think from him I was an officer and he was. He ran the boiler era which was the mistaken that we do something called. Please together do you never say. Never say never my Vince Comey did a GIG. Richard Branson Yeah it was really proud of it but yeah these events they will everyone in the Europe of us who jumping up and down to come on. Eileen by DIXIES OF SOFT cell forming tainted the southernly here at university it was the switch went on and dance music suddenly probably one thousand nine hundred. Don't replace decks so we had this terrible event which passion P. A. S. H.. Ed there was free pizza literally. We had a DJ all the work between turned ended up free pizza pissed off. We were left with an empty docile. So we we change that to please And it was fortunately growing success and then I had an incident production company where we did a big dons events concerts etc so that was really my other than being a journalist. They'll Bailey for my uncle. That was my real first business really. Yeah and then you know via via proctor and gamble bull and consulting in Bank of inches in you spent many years at Bain. Doing net promoter scores and so on and then is it quite a journey to go from being the strategy buff into a leader of an auburn a startup if you like all the way through. PNG and Bena had my business so both were pretty flexible and allow me to do that. So I was still having to kind of do the get-out events be the last person to leave knackered while you load the truck up so there was probably some kind of continuity between that kind of event undoing restaurants however I do think that Yes I remember one night done four shifts in a row. I've done Friday night A double shift on a Saturday Sunday and and the double shift on the Monday Bank Holiday because I think he was away. I was so tired and I dropped this. This trae from this Till and literally every monsoon about four thousand coins and they just rolled under every piece of equipment and I was spent four hours trying to find all the money and then I had to walk home. 'cause there there's no transport and I was thinking you know what there is a difference between consulting running these restaurants and we'll free pizza. It wasn't bad but it wasn't because you you learn to Bain lots of businesses and leaders. Who are doing it wrong and you thought I can do better than this? Sit It down with Henry Dimbleby and decide on startup idea. Yes so Henry and Allegra. I think we were as much inspired by people that were doing. Well I looks took people you know even I never had to plaza. Let's go is showing out because the French economy The guy that wants to go near Anita Roddick who directly a new from bodyshop Southwest Airlines in America per fun at the heart of the business. Even though safety is our number one priority so I think it was probably inspired. By seeing great people I did also think potentially the big business was teeny bit of humanity at times And some of those leaders one entirely in touch with the people who are working in their shops factories. Justin lock it now. Do you think yeah I think so. yeah Would you think I think they that trying harder but I think there's a there's still a division between in sort of the Sheen in the reality if you like so. I think for a lot of leaders. It's quite hard to to really really put it. You know they say this is at the center of our business but I think six quite hard for them to live it day after day after day and so on and I think also this pressure depending on who owns the business has a bit more freedom. I think it's still by the founder but you know if you're on the stock market and I remember interviewing Paul Polman Unilever quite a lot. He said that the only thing that gives me license to do all the good stuff is keeping the profitably shareholders and I'm inspired by the leadership of the guy is it. WHAT'S THE AMERICANS ALUMINIUM companies? Elko yes who are put some fighting from elsewhere anyway so So little was about the guy that took Alco and the UH and he went. She's first shareholders meeting which was analyst meeting. And he said. I've only hates talk to you about safety under my tenure. Only talk about safety and we're GONNA make the Safest Company in America and everyone's like. Yeah thanks very much. What about capital It's like no no. I'm hated to hedge email. hatestock about safety His tenure became the safest one of the safest companies in from one of the least safe and the share price quadrupled. Because every sleep. Suddenly if you do one thing well you do everything so I do some light that kind of I oh I think takes us. The CEO can stand up to the shareholders and a CEO that can provide a vision for the shareholders and it might not be over the next eighteen months but it certainly is balancing short and long-term term. They go yeah. I read my those in a public environment and the environment and I think sometimes you do get brave. CEO's are either Arctic enough courageous enough to re educate the shoulders. I think it's important that we support those kind of I totally agree with you and and I think that trick with being a CEO is you've you have to leave the vision. Listen and keep the keep up there above the clouds and understand what's going on. Let your team got on with that. But keep selling the vision to your to your guys. I mean I did some work with Disney away from London Olympics and Disneyland Paris the whole Disney Goto is magical. Everyone's magical and they are extraordinarily good at this whether it's the guy sweeping the streets or serving the burgers or operating the rides it's magical. Yeah and they live and breathe. It's it's a really strong culture. You have an easier Rodney stakeholders Craig Abajo. 'cause you you got. The Queen is patron crans. Patrons is wonderful quaint silly but I want to know a little bit about your beginnings because it looks like those a time when you may have. I've been an actor and I don't want to be on the stage recently so I thought ah never get ahead so then there was these roles in marketing and related and the the transformational role is very long title. But you had to bring the Razzle Dazzle Hassle to the Sydney Olympics in two thousand basically. I'd three portfolios and we joke about it saying it basically bunting parties and things which is true so I ran the cultural program for Sydney Olympics Pixel Olympics revolt those fireworks. I well effectively this. This is actually the most terrifying night was we had. It was the night before the opening ceremony and the guy that had run the La Olympic said. He said Craig would do something. Really amazing not before because the whole world's in town right so we did. This event at Sydney Opera House had on driver Celli singing cash carrying the Olympic torch giving it to Andrea. Who's saying in our the go-to Newton? John it was amazing but at the same time we had to turn the rings on the on the Sydney Harbour Bridge and it was an absolute nine hundred. The hold it worked with it and was that was that. Was that the first time you regard as yourself. You're leading a team. Must have been a Ludi people on the ground to make that happen. She was quite a small team. Initially it was a four year Gig we had four festivals and the the core teams any about forty people by the time we got to the year. The two thousand matches the last of the four festivals ahead about six hundred staff including all the contractors and the various companies and so on so it was massive. And we honestly had no idea what we're doing. We're very young young team and there was the first time Sydney ever hosted anything like this. The scale was beyond what would ever imagined so so it was good training that you just. Let's just do a straw poll. What do you think we should do this? Okay let's do that deadline. Very interestingly only in the Olympic Games ever all you had to kind of people. They're sort of the engineering folk. You've made the venues and that sort of stuff and people like us who came from show folk and they kept impressing upon us at the opening ceremony is eleven in September two thousand at seven pm or whatever and we will of course it. Is You know we're used to show going up seven thirty every night whereas if you're an engineer eh wins. The bridge finished. Well let's finish finish thing so Interest to Bali started. That's right that's right so worry too much But the scale was was then. When you're done that did you think wow I've done the ACA I can do anything now? I'm I'm the boss last question. Maybe maybe but then people came to sing for you. I guess I guess I mean it was certainly. It was a good job for me and it did give you a profile beyond just Sydney which Hawaii ended up giving avalon. Probably so yeah. Since those early days of spilling coins all over the floor. You're a fully formed leaders. You sit here today. What have I loved yeah? I think I've learned how useless humans are any in particular. Humans are wrecked by surfing. Shame Anger Gary Insecurity and it's basically job of a leader is just to deal with that to try and get people beyond that so I think what I've learned is that I've learned partly I think Leon and the associate I should work. I've done With the Muslim wing which I have learned last five years is that With their humans are very easily manipulated through what we might cool Ligo which is principles. Shane Principles of anger principles affair and I think that in order to create an amazing organization you have to allow people to understand that and get beyond that so I think that's the number one thing that I've learned. Whatever size jigsaw piece I am I need to be that I need to educate my teams That's who I am. Allow them to be there. Cy Shane Jigsaw piece. And then together we can make the jigsaw puzzle. So that's kind of the number one probably framework. I think I've loved some of that. Thinking develops there around twenty fourteen worth three founders and then you were pushed out in front as you are the CEO So then you have have to have the bigger thoughts about Organization Leadership D. I think thoughts is one word maybe ability to not think and act on instinct and intuition right. I'm probably in the probably trying to over. Think I I believe in it acting as as a leader without an older employee guilty of Creighton to any mental constructs. I think I probably at that point realized that I have to lead in the way that I have instinctively felt as Asian has needed And I think being liberated as a knowing that you are going to lead not according to someone else's rulebook according to what your instincts telling you how should be leading I think that's sort of breakthrough which I had craig tell me about mentors. People who I think there's a number of people Australia and those formative years who really told you to go for it and go for it Well if I got way back to being high school which is an awful long time ago The reason I ended up in the arts is because I had to brilliant teachers who championed championed rumbustious young kids to see symphony orchestras and see dance and theater. And that just I have my eyes to a whole world. I would never have seen same. Where the name Cepeda Jensen and bill clock and they were sensational? These two guys and I I would have been embarrassed. I was doing something else. You know if went for these guys and I still keep in touch with them and they they bring fellas so they were the first two I suppose and then when I went to the opera there's a guy called Donald McDonald who announced his real name. Goalpara Goalpara his parents and he has his mental many many years. Right through Work if you're working the Olympics and beyond as well and it's just useful with these guys and Newport heritage on through your life just sounding boards even definitely. You had the really dumb questions you can look at being stupid about this job or this decision on just something you said before. I think you know when you get to this point. You want to also make sure that your team feel go. Drop permission to fail. Because that's how you learn absolutely screw things up and you can. You can debrief on ago. That was a couple. Let's think about it and we'll continue to nationalism. I mean the perfectionist businesses. You know they take eighteen months for them to fail. Yes that's fine. I'll start now. I expect you to fail today and the environment today when I think about the ballet world ballet when I was running English National Ashok. La We're talking about. McMillan and Ashton is too great and British car. Who in the day most works? They created values the works. We remember the ones that survived. I have all these years. What one thing I've fascinated by and I did? I did put a little bit in the book. Gladys written is about this idea of total quality management because what happened was American over to Japan after the war and said we want we build your economy. Because we've been so so here's how to do do it you try you failed Blah Blah. Then in in the sixties American Biz industry had failed because it was very top down very conglomerate-led and they said the Japanese what you're doing and they said Oh. We're just doing what you told us to do. A really what was that. Just learn fail adapt and then the new mom was in the eighties. We what Japan was doing which which we thought was perfect And so we thought total quality management men. Everything has to be perfect. You Comet mistake now the perfectionism of a Sony. TV It came from the thousands of mistakes has gotten to that outcome. Yeah so I think the yeah perfectionism and the lack of different Joe. It gave me some of these failures than no Leeann. Yes Almonte Golic just something something on the eastern episode failures okay so making many too complex to begin with number one opening a restaurant in Brompton road that didn't work Because it was behind a tree about ten meters out and you the tails. What else loads stuff? So I went to one point. I took the photographs off the menu balls and went to a grid system where you can have everything everything different ways like a sort of your. Have Your Walker meatballs in this this this and have your tied chicken. This whatever. It is so screwed. That up What else have I screwed up? I think I make some mistakes. We will do. We have to learn quickly and leave plum. Maybe but it but it is the these are not these. Don't sound you're not saying. Oh we we're entering. We shouldn't these details. Oh okay yes also. Haven't we saw. We've run out of money at one point. That's a reasonable amount of my money back in removing the house or other things that we just run of the mill loss of so many issue. I do think that I went to see Steve ells who runs to Portland. which is a big American American fall schedule and he said you watch when the code? I think it's all the food tasting heater japodlay. The whole organization fell apart because nothing bad ever happened to everyone in the organization was used to working at this well feted well loved financially seemingly impervious business business. Suddenly the confidence was wrecked in the entire organization. And I think the I think we're blessed that we screwed up so many things. Uh Craig talked a little bit about motivations. What gets you out of bed in the morning to do to run the alcohol? Is it putting something great on stage all well. There's a lot a lot of so I would say my my team still. I've got A. I've got a great bunch. Their assignment avoid love working. They're all our whole. They really driven by it. You know we don't pay particularly well. A lot of our stuff work underground or behind the scenes. They have no public facing role. A lot of the students have to deal with a lot of crap. You know from people But the the culture is really strong and I think that gets me out of bed most of always knowing how those guys work what what makes him getting British public appreciate the alcohol enough. I do do you ever since the rollout. It's a much loved institution the way I describe it. I say you know it's such A. It's such a special thing for every member of the audience and for every artist and everyone is welcome. It's not elitist. We ever designed to be elitist. But it's really special to go there with performing on stage. I mean the. There's a dvd of Adele Dell at the Robert Hall which is the highest selling DVD of a concert. Ever anywhere because it's her at that place. It's amazing in cakes. Yeah when Kate you test. The problems I mean is clear that the artists are not pretending to be emotion overwhelms performing there they really are affected affected by it and I take in donated. The singer literally looks around as I see. I've got to cherish this. Remember this moment it goes back. I think we have alleviate wards now at the eleventh hole and when I first started Kenneth Branagh was given the lifetime achievement award and he was saying afterwards that he was was blown away by the intimacy all his rolled around in this in this space which is which is amazing. What about little? And when you sort of pushing the boundaries hundred under this is a good example. I thought when you took the ballet company to I think it was Wembley Stadium Fidel yes. They shouldn't ballet doesn't happen happen unless there's a sprung floor but this was another rather forget it was it was very challenging the time because it was a it was a variety auty show and Elton John and take that and the remainder of the spice girls and a couple of spots. It's sprung floor down because it wasn't it wasn't possible then it was. Wendy stadium was full of amazing and we did the last bit of Swan Lake and when the Prince Reynolds stage the entire stadium stood and cheered like a football match goosebumps. I was crying. It was It was a great moment for ballet and also princess. Diana was the patron of the company doing for Prince William and Prince Harry so it was a huge on to keep it a little bit of magic of what Donna had loved so much the company ladder and it was it was one of those moments but it was an absolute good physiology. So it's that great stuff. The great the great moments it also part of the danger we kind of touched on it. There's the plumbing. Not just a toilets. This CECCHINI acoustics are working. And there's this excavation and sewerage and a lot of that surge. Recently I think to actually Victorian. Yeah Yeah you talked about the all staff in the past Austin and other thing this gets much credit really but you see quite a responsibility. Quite a number of you'll staff will be quite young to be sixteen seventeen year olds and are you saying that they a need a bit of help to be work ready or you have almost a responsibility this if this is their first role definitely I I Saw US fund the same thing and the people that work with view yes schools do a good job of getting people to get the best possible marks. They can in exams. That's the job of schools. Seems to be shouldn't be but it seems to me and we have young people from all around the world. I'm with their from Britain or elsewhere. I think that once first job has a huge impact on how you live the rest of your life cafe and the I think the relationships you form that age the fun you have or the environment you're in a councilman and for me. They we teach everyone on the joins. Leon we teach them things that are about knowing themselves who they are. We not school who we are. We're not giving a map. The encounter We're not we have a personal unconscious. which is you know created by our environment and life collective unconscious which goes back to? We were fish. That has these archetypes like good bad mother father. We're not talk. Transfer instance. Perhaps when I'm angry with you I'm with your mango. Because you might be my dad all all of these kinds of tools. Psychological tools time management tools team communication skills. And all of these things I think are we have twelve hundred. The people were directly evening with our own restaurants two thousand including the franchise restaurants. I think we got an amazing opportunity. I call it. I call them the fourth emergency services. I say you know who else went the when we have three thousand restaurants like like Walmart responded to Hurricane Katrina better than the federal government because they devolved volt responsibility and trust to the managers You know one the the Westminster Bridge attack. We had one person that was missed by foot but stayed there for forty five minutes giving first day. They to a policeman when the London Bridge attack happened and we were our both our office and restaurants were directly in the Corden. We're very lucky to escape. And we'll bring her Ah We gave first aid. The restaurants without me asking reopened gave food and drinks to everybody for free and I think that is because those sorts of values that we we have those are fundamentally the exportable bitterly honestly almost to do beer or an airline that is exportable spirit. Would get transplanted about the CEO's that do it in the CEO's don't it's better to let your people embodied the Brown how they see fit rather than you invest in an glossy ninety the second ad that says we really good. I just think you tell somebody who funny or you can make them laugh. And that's a metaphor the material in it but I think we after in our industry advertisers know how to grow grow is to be nice to customs willing to come in and give them some food and and then if we do that my priority has the team so I definitely think about my jobs. Look after my team and they dropped off the customers. Craig wasn't the advice that you give to people further down your organization who wants to scale height you have done. It's pretty similar to John. I think you've got to have people. Empowered understand the parameters of their job but also give them a bit of a stretch as well to grow into a role I think you you did you need a bit of a game plan is to way WANNA head I mean. I think we'll change careers six times so he might have a plan not stick to it but I think having a plan is not a bad idea That's not waving end up. At least you keep going the right direction or direction. So I'm curious you setting up the company Liens Your Dad yes. So how did that conversation go. Did you run it by him. I I can't I can't remember running past. I remember someone saying heavy. Still good name for the company said that is kind of. It's an instinct. The best thing I said you know what Leon that's a nice name was my dad's name being flipping all actually. Maybe it's all right and I did sort of gingerly made. My anger was working with us. He told Henry before I had plots up to two. I think it had to come to terms with it but you know what I'm in charge Lebron side of it. I could decide so yes and it was a name name. The film would come out the other one. The assassin one. Okay I have seen they've seen. He's the choices. It doesn't mean anything so you could like nutritious or some exotic European countries have got tangled. Leon Elliot Trans Europ take some over time. My Dad's my dad's imagery The one when he's swim shorts on leave from the Rif in the Mediterranean that became he became a gay icon in ministry ovum. Awesome Street so and he he always pretended to Not like the attention and I'm hoping he did ask about. I'm hope he likes the attention but he always pretended to be very shy. She was actually very sorry. Man But Yeah he went with it which was good. I know I can't remember ever asking which is terrible. Ruble I keep saying look to my Auntie neater because him and my family the woods to Vincent's I if I sell Liam just sue them for the image rights. That's because I've never. I never got your permission. That's a secret ongoing. We'll get the phone and get paid twenty astros capital Paraguay within a coup Asuncion's because it claimed the freemen could meet that Jon Benson Craig Castle. Thank you so much for the conversation. Thank you and thanks for listening to this episode of leading with James Ashton which is supported by Saxton Bam file the executive search firm and leadership adviser. You can find more episodes. So it's on apple podcasts or spotify including conversation with David Sproul. The former senior partner professional services joined Deloitte areas explaining how to tackle the full interest in the big fourfirms. The first is we've got to get better at explaining who we are and what we stand for because we should always accept mistakes will happen but fundamentally nowhere quickly the the we do the right thing and we're just not good enough at explaining that and in some ways we have to take responsibility for the fact that trust has gone because we haven't done a good enough job at dealing with it and if those are errors we have to live from it. Frankly if it's down to bad behavior and organization is just a lens on society so we will have people who sometimes times do the wrong thing. We'll do it and the legal visitation.

Thuan seven we must leave. I have told you Elvis I will not run away as she did in the previous two seasons. Victoria's creator and head writer daisy Goodwin turned to history to tell the Queen story while amplifying the Royal drama family squabbles for present day viewers. She out but have a very rookie road through the series. Because. Folsom. They have fundamentally different ideas of what monarchy should be Goodwin joins us to kick off the third season, Victoria with a conversation about British charts, French revolution. And the biting wit of Lord Palmerston. And this week we are joined by Victoria, creator, head writer and executive producer daisy Goodwin. Welcome. Hi. The opening of season. Three finds Louis Philippe disguising himself and fleeing amid the eighteen forty eight revolution. His terror is justaposed with Victoria in an enormous diamond parole crown walking in a slow procession was this juxtaposition revolution versus pomp and circumstance intentional. Well. Yeah. Yeah. I write the acting sequence to to Reddy highlight the contrast between the phillipe's situation and Victoria's all Rover the ephemeral nature of monarchy because I think what I'm also trying to do is to say that hops Victoria's very sort of solid world isn't quite as solid as she thinks. It is it's like the repulsive of what happens in France. And what happens in all over Europe nineteen forty eight is getting all the way to Britain. She and I'll have a sort of conversation budget, and she says, well, it's never gonna happen here thing channel. Sure that be enough. Ideas consume Asian food is a very big year because it's the year that call marks publishes, the communist manifesto, which actually Albert read pretty much the month that came out. And so there's a lot of unease in Buckingham Palace, mostly on Albus heart, Victoria, fills that she's impregnable. But as we see throughout the first episode that that belief is is shaken you mentioned Albert's line, which I think is my favorite in this episode ideas can swim Victoria is this pitch perfect line something the prince actually said her a bit of poetry from your pen. I'm afraid it's been a poetry. I think it's poetry each. Everybody kept trying to take it unless let's no this is a really good line. Please leave it in. So I'm glad you liked. I think it's an amazing line. The charges have been a thorn in Victoria side since the show's first season. How does this petition represented change in strategy for the struggling movement? And what is it that the chargers actually want? So the chill is being bubbling I've in throughout the eighteen forties. As you say. I think the point about this is that they become instead of local art breaks become a national movement and they've been emboldened by what's happened on the continent. Because some of them went over to France, and they see that in France people like them have succeeded in overthrowing the government and deposing the king and getting a Republic, and generally changing the way the country works, and they're thinking, well, why can't we do this hair? And so they can is this enormous rally on the eleventh of April, and we're going to be groups of choices coming down from all over the country, and they were going to March from Kennington common, which is in south London over the bridge to present that petition with all signatures to the Huzzah Commons, and you know, what they wanted with a six points of the. Route which was universal suffrage most of all annual elections. They wanted MP's to be paid any. And so I mean everything now that we take for granted. But then, you know, the franchise is really limited. It was very powerful potent movement. And I think that was real hope on this side that they would prevail. I'm real fair on the side of the government that they would prevail. And that they would be a revolution in London as had been embarrassed the duchess of clue and willa meaner or gone replaced by Victoria's week. Ladies was there an exchange in the script between Victorian Albert about will Amina, and Victoria's godson that didn't make it to the screen. Yes. I'm always have been was for reasons of space we had to cut back, but basically we'll Amina and the infant Padgett stuck at home in the country and the duchess preclu- in a has been retired because she's a Tory. So they. There's a whole new set of ladies the would have been stuck in the country to kill the baby the black shrouded woman who arrives on the English coast is revealed to be victorious long lost half sister Feodor. How does this fictionalized version of her serene highness and her relationship to Victoria differ from the real life ego? Well, I mean, it's interesting I think very little is known about Feodor because she was kept rather out of sight. And when I still reading about I discovered that she has story was way more interesting than I had imagined because she lived in Kensington Palace with the Dutch count and the very young victorious as she was nine years old, Victoria. And when she was about sixteen Feodor, cool. I of Josephus who was king at the time. He was a widow by that point. And he saw this pretty young thing Lucia back Kensington Palace, and he thought maybe I could marry her postpone out. And then the throne wouldn't go to Victoria. And he was towing the slide to install it suit making up to fidora. But as soon as Victoria's mother and Conroy wind of this. They decided that that could never happen, and they petro to Germany to marry some German princeling because they wanted wister have Victoria as Queen regmunt completely under the control rather than to have fidora as Queen consort potentially messing up their most plan to take the country. So that is true. And it seemed to me that that was a very good starting point for a drama. Which is 'have got a sister who came within spitting distance of being Queen any to have all her hopes dashed in favor of this kind of. Youngest sister, and who never really takes much interest in her and who allies moulder away in some grim of southern German duchy with very little money. And so I think that there's the. Potential for some fantastic drama there. So I thought well, I'm going to put fit or in the Mexican see what happens, and there's no doubt that the two sisters had a very dodgy relationship. So I I mean, obviously what transpires in series three is a bit of a confection on my part. But I think it it is an extrapolation of the real kind of foot lines between sisters now for a beat in this episode almost seems as though Feo is an impostor that you'll know just you. Your sister is here. Fidora? Two. Oh, really? Who have not stopped? This cousin and. So happy to meet to at last Emma says they'd all but forgotten Victoria, even had a half sister. The dog growls at her what questions should the viewers be asking about feel at this point? Well, I suppose he wouldn't it kind of know is what her motivation is she's I mean victory realizes, it's her sister. But I think confusion guilt comes as she's oversleep conveniently forgotten Labonte eyesight. Mind she's been too busy with Albus and kingdom and have family, and whatever, and I think she Elst fidora to her wedding. Or if she did she didn't send the money to come. So fitter has literally been penalises for years. And so you know, when she comes she's wearing this kind of shabby gun, and she's the kind of poor relation. And that's why everybody's very surprised to see it. They can't believe clean house sister. Who looks like that? I mean, even birdie points out the holes in her skirt. Yes, exactly, which she's coming from a sort of different place, you can be Royal and impoverished, and I think that's Victoria's forgotten. She kinda mitt to feeling guilty. So she pretends it hasn't happened the Tony and alleviate nominated Kate Fleetwood who plays feeder is one of many new faces this season. What is Fleetwood bring to the role of the mysterious Feo? Well, she's just such a fantastic face. I write the role ready with her in mind. So I was very pleased when she accepted, the Pont, I think she brings a feeling coming to the park, which I love and she's got great timing. And you know that when she's on the screen. She's a character you can read in lots of different ways. And I think people need to she's extremely affable to Albert. And in the sea will sort of spike he moments with Victoria, and I've had such fun rushing. Her and Cates, really sort of brutal. I kind of. Villainous qualities. I would say. She's not appear villain. I think she's a tragic character. But I've really enjoyed putting her on the page. I could not dream of a better cast Lord Palmerston than Laurence FOX who walks away with some of the best lines of the season who forget Alliston, which was talking about our family and friends. I'm sure that in the future. The foreign secretary will send copies of his correspondence air. I seem very sure of the people think Lord Palmerston make businessman. The British public is a beautiful women. And I wish to glory in her smiled. How much fun was it writing Palmerston's dialogue this year? It's been heaven heaven. I mean, of course, won't move to go one womanizing foreign secretary. He doesn't give them about anything on love that. And he sort of undermines the kind of stuff in his poem postie of the court. And he's the absolute polar opposite to Albert which I think is great because you both sort of shift commisson that you will say by the end of the series began to realize that Albert to has his Vert she so those kind of really interesting interplay between the two of them and thoughts being a numerous fund today. Pens Ghaffar's to warn the servants downstairs to stay out of sight. Because no woman is safe. When Palmerston is around was he as much thorough in real life as he is here. Oh, absolutely. Is little pumps? Was a famous as we would say his Shaikha, but he was also extremely devoted to his wife. So, you know. Make that what she will before this next question.

Oh, well, I just I was thrilled. When Jones said he would it because he's five Bolus. Sharon, I thought this combination of him and Lawrence as Poston Russell was going to Berlin. As indeed it does. Because Russell loads pump Ston, but is kind of looked into uneasy punt ship with him because without pumps since peut. His government will fool and say he's just in agony for the entire series. And he's is awful bumptious, man. At one point. He says I I wish you'd Kumi prime minister. Kind of my anguish play for little respect how much of the British public appreciation of Palmerston or or as he's called by the public was down to his reputation of being a man of the people the the sort of bloke who likes to have a flutter in relishes a prizefight. He was somebody who was very good meeting his public. He wasn't to sort of Olympia Nour's to Krant. He would go to Prizefights. He would do things that were in the public realm. But also he was fantastic populist. He was a man who would feel about Britain being the greatest nation on earth. And he would being credibly said a bellicose they never actually wanted to have was he would pretend that he did. There was no die where he stood and people really responded to that. And he was just a very colorful character. He was very good at getting media outlets on his side. So he was a he was going to modern politicians that sense the. The very politician in the he knew how to play the media, and he knew to get the public on his side birdie refuses to even try on victorious crown saying, crowns, for girls was birdie this opposed to the the idea that he might rule Sunday in in real life. Both he really had no willing to that. He was going to be king because he grew up in this world where his mother was Queen and Vicky was clearly better everything than him as he just assumed that Vicky would be Queen. It didn't occur to him that he was in the came to be king and this really happened in London, Victoria realizes. I'm not kind of tell him. The actually, you know, this is going to be us one day because it didn't occur to them that he didn't know I thought that was a glorious moment that in you know, as he says in Britain, we have queens because that's all Hino's scare it and Franken Kelly are now engaged and. The very ambitious Franken Kelly is already making plans for their new life together. What lies ahead for these two in his their story connected to the struggle of the working class here. Yes. I suppose I wanted to show that they. Out poorly mobile, but frontally which de villes wants move and being a servant even policy of. And and I suppose that scare it fills very divided about leaving the policy because low she loves Tony. She wants his new life. She also feels has status and everything comes from the Queen. And also, she goes are grateful to the Queen because the Queen has basically given her this new life and has forgiven her sins at such such and such. So it's a it's an interesting story that conflict and leaving the policy behind his game to be a huge moment for scare it. And is this a crisis of identity for her? I think so she's a self made character. And I suppose you have to remember that once she gets married she becomes husband's property and allege she loves him. And you know, there's no reason not to it. She's giving up her independence. And also, she's turning her back home. This woman who she's become incredibly close to over the last ten years, and they have an unspoken thing going on between them which she will miss and she dreads telling the Queen won't softened. I've always loved lady Emma Portman, but never so much as when she steps into save so-fi when Monmouth is so awful to her about the broach sufi, the Queen Osma feud look over the place cots. She says you are so good at these things. Jesse? You know, there is no correct place few to whether broach from the did, you know, that my father was once shopkeeper really mine was a posse. But I try not hold it against do you adore as much as I do we love. She's so glorious them say beautifully played by on a Wilson Jones. She's just a gift she such good actress everything she does. She doesn't get much screen time. But she makes every moment count. So she's one of those coaches, I love watching full. Sophie, the daughter of a grocer. Her husband reminds her seems trapped in a pretty unfortunate position her marriage to the Duke of Monmouth seems not only loveless, but just plain awful is the couple based on real life figures. Yes. I mean, it says compasses it. But I suppose it's pretty accurate in the the were lot of marriages at about that time when our? Kratz beginning to feel the wind of change that they couldn't rely on the voice two states to keep them in style to which they become accustomed income-tax being introduced there was this new mercantile close that had lots of money, but no status. So there was a kind of trade off between money and states. So you'll have someone like safey who's you know, suppose what we would call middle class, but extremely wealthy who is married off and becomes duchess. And that's a fantastic transaction for the do because he got so late of money and food safety's family because they can talk about that due to the duchess, but it's pretty hard lines on on so fi. Because she in the of nothing in common Joseph is a footman newly arrived at the palace after service at Chatsworth house who is already running foul of Penn JR. What can you reveal about his character? And where the story might be going. Well. I chose this is a as an upwardly mobile footmen. And of course, the point about a footman. It was had to be tool in Hudson. And they was sort of candy. They the icon the stately homes, and they always said, very handsome young men, and I was trying to imply that Joseph it left Chatsworth because you've been together too friendly with duchess and have been paid off with a very handsome reference. And now, he's at the pilots. And so I suppose he's using his. His chills to better himself in life. So that sunny high he stole side. Factor fiction. When Louis Philippe said if I were not a Frenchman. I should wish to be an Englishman did Palmerston Cooley reply. If I were not an Englishman should wish to be an Englishman is actually fucked. Yes, it was such a great extent to work. I thought it was five Bolus. Considering the incident involving Louis Philippe and the Spanish Queen last season. Why does Victoria opt to take in Louis? Philippe does family loyalty. Trump diplomatic betrayal. Yes. Also, I think you know, he's a king. Actually, he's king down on his luck. He's lost his throne. And even though he really tried them in the law series. You know, the fact that he's a king means that they have to take him in. You know, she owes loyalty to another crime head a month. What she takes him in. Factor. Fiction did a mob March on the palace and throw a brick through one of the windows. Yes, they did. They did through brick IMO did shoot London and throw a brick wrapped in French flag through the Buckingham Palace windows, and because I angry about let me Philippe staying at the pundits. Because they felt that Victoria shouldn't be harboring a tyrant. And did Victoria's water break has a result of this. Or is that a dramatic device that there's a bit dramatic license use the it works affectively? Looking at third season as a whole what are the underlying themes? You're exploring in the broadest of strokes. Well, I guess it's about what it means to be a Queen at the beginning of the series. The one thing that she's come to rely on is the love of her people. And then as the show begins she's sort of confident in that. But as a society progresses, she begins to divulge begins to realize that actually she's going to have to work for that love. And that she talks about it being the base note that I could her life and now there's always disturbance going on and she suddenly realizes well if she's not Queen. What is she says when you're my wife and these children, but that's mould enough of it terrier, and that's a real moment for her. It's a real moment of sort of self doubt. And she an album have a very rocky road through this series. Because I. Fulsomely have quite fundamentally different ideas of what monarchy should be, you know, she wants to be popular. She wants to be loved. She wants to go and her carriage and be kid, and she'll do whatever it takes to win the of whereas Alpert fails that the duty monkeys to lead from the front and sometimes to risk being unpopular to do the right thing. So is his finished. You should give the people what they need not what they want. And this becomes a real tension between them in. He finds Victoria's pathological need for tension. He finds out very irritating. And she calls the stand why he is so blind to the dangers of being unpopular. So there is this real. Kind of push and pull between the two of them plus attentions of childbearing and pregnancy, and there's always the feeling that every time Victoria, has a child her mind becomes progressively more unhinged. And of course, aways tensions are being stoked by the presence of Dora who is doing everything in her power to drive, Victoria and Albert apart. We can't wait to see. What happens? Thank you.

King Leopold Completes A Royal Tour Of Duty For Alex Jennings

"Uh-huh. I'm Jay sleigh Cobb. And you're listening to masterpiece studio king Leopold of Belgium has been the pied piper of Royal romance. Masterpieces Victoria, shrewdly matching his nephew Prince Albert with the young Queen, Victoria, his niece nomally is the man who must declare his love. But in your case, you would have to overcome you'll mid and stay and proposed to Albert or not. No. But the duet yesterday was so charming. I'm sorry. Alba tonight not suit he has no manners. But Leopold could also be Albert's. Father a rather oily prospect that left Prince Albert reeling in the wake of the revelation last season. Just lost my beloved Charlotte, and your father left hold on here with your brother. And so we comforted one another. Comforted actor Alex Jennings is no stranger to royalty having played Prince Charles in the critically acclaimed film. The Queen King George the third and the Duke of Windsor net. Flicks is the crown but king Leopold offered a different type of Royal. I've done lots of historical characters, which is fun to do. But brings it so kind of issues as well because you're never going to be everybody's idea of Prince Charles. Oh, somebody's going to go to Rome is quite a responsibility. Sometimes you feel that you shouldn't judge these people in a way Jennings joins us to talk Leopold the fallout with his beloved Albert and why he always seems to be cast as crowned noble afterwards, Victoria, creator, head writer and executive producer. Daisy Goodwin joins us for another round of fact or fiction. This week. We are joined by Victoria, star Alex Jennings. Welcome. Thank you for having me in one of daisy Goodwin. Scripts for season. One Victoria Leopold is described thusly Leopold, his evidently vain and self regarding his trousers are too tight in another. He's quote, loathesome -ly emolient. What were your first impressions of Leopold when you initially registered for season one? Well, I did a bit of background reading about the real Leopold. And that only gets you so far really when of your playing historical figure, I li- as descriptions that gave me something to go on and indeed the trousers whoever very tight. I like the fact that you get a bit of the the intelligent manipulator the guy who sort of was connecting. Ooh, manner of obscure European Royal families and members together primarily album, Victoria. Of course, I had some fun with that. I think that of a German accent thing, that's what it was. My wife said when I was practicing at home, why are you playing it like Boris Becker? There was a little bit of sort of mid Atlantic going on. I mean, I will say he remains one of my favorite characters on Victoria. And he's always ready with a perfectly turned phrase or an eyebrow raising insinuation. How do you see the characters having changed since those early days in season one? I guess it away. It's become a little. A little more serious. I think in season two when those the whole plot suggestion that he might be Albert's father. Annoy, his uncle there's some historical gossip about that. He was in the right place at the right time to have possibly been Abbas farther. But it's no more than conjecture, really. But we ran with it. And it meant that I had some good sort of dramatic emotional stuff with Alba, which was good to not just be the eyebrow. Raising slightly saw tonic lightweight Leopold. I guess do you see him as more of a kingmaker or a puppet master? He was both those things in reality and was very influential very influential and very close to Victoria, historically, which he doesn't necessarily see in the series, but they corresponded a lot, and he was very important sort of. Are the figure and influence in her life and was genuinely very fond of them both. I think and saw the opportunity to fix a marriage that. Was good wjm good for them. And they and it happened to be a great love match. I think as well Leopold's relationship with Victoria is fascinating to watch. Especially the rather unexpectedly touching moments between the two develop such as the marron glace seen in season one. What was it like filming this particular moment booth genyk Coleman? One of the great joys of it. And the fun of it was was the relationship with Jenner and how she could be quite sort of snap his with Leopold in that he was interfering too much. And and that little sort of grit in their relationship was was great fun to play the ghost of the doomed Charlotte hovers over that scene. Glad to see you have an appetite Victoria, must be strong for what lies ahead, Charlotte. Used to like sweets to. But doctors would not let them metal saw an happy either so much now that I had given her all the Maryland glassy that she wanted you and Al. You remind me so much. How much of Leopold's character is informed by the loss of Charlotte. And indeed of the monarchy he so desperately craved. I think especially in series one the loss of Charlotte is very sort of at the front and that sort of that. Diminishes as season two goes on. And he moved on. He had an affair with German. Actress see them married again and had children. But it's very it's quite roar. I think in season one, and he's quite Mellon claim wistful about what might have been his about happy to be the main sort of Acilitator of the relationship between the Toronto. But and it's something I have always wondered about him is whether his belief that he was Aubert's biological father. Did it Dr him even more to make that marital match with Victoria was he securing a dynasty in that way. Yes. I think he was I think he was absolutely doing that. And our it was his his favorite nephew possibly, son. And he he felt I guess that. He would. His influence would would be. Would continue on. So I suppose on on a on a large European stage. One of my favorite Leopold moments is in the second season. When Albert finds out that Leopold might be his father, it culminates in a big fight complete with armor. I'm so proud if you add two now, the to our father, you must understand my feeling stunned. Understand. Maybe. Sham. Entire life alive, Victoria, married to a busted. But you rigid. Everything. Pels for the monarchy amounted to share punk rec- because of you. What was it? Like filming this confrontation with with Tom Hughes? It was re Tolman. I I'll friends we've worked together several times before. So that's always good. When you when you have a trust with somebody playing with. Which we certainly do and we felt very kind of free with it. And it was filmed in a very very free way. We went sort of glued down by two specific blocking for the same. We were able to be quite quite free with it. It was really exciting. Actually, it was exciting to film and also in a completely believable stately home in Yorkshire that stood in for. Leopold's Schloss, and that always when you're doing these historical series, the the work of the designers or the fact that you'll fill me in one of our many, many stately homes helps your imagination a lot. But it was really exciting. Exciting meaty seen to play and what that did to our relationship in future scenes as well. But it played out quite nicely. I think through the next few episodes that it had big repercussions in Albert's particularly of him learning. How to accept this this possibility that Leopold was might be his father, and our relationship was given time to develop into to find each other again, I guess I mean, it is a heartbreaking moment for both. These men considering their closeness we see more. How it plays out for Albert? But how does this moment? Do you think play out internally within Leopold? I think he misjudges the effect is going to have. I think he thinks it is possibly going to. Bring them closer. And it doesn't quite do that because album finds it very hard to to accept it. And you know, what's he going to do with that information? It could never go public. And historically as said, it is it's conjecture on the part of some historians and other historians reject is possibility as well in this week's episode Leopold returns to Buckingham Palace after leaving Belgium due to unraced. There's a beautiful moment in this episode between Leopold and Albert the is still so much to. That this country would go the same way as fronts, but it seems that the English they may crumble, but they do not come to the boil. It is the weather. I think it is hard to lead revolution in the rain. I am. So proud of you Albert. Cotija have they finally reached a reproche mall? Yes. I think they absolutely have and Albert is a bull to accept advice in how he deals with Edward his son. So the son and heir because the difficulty in a in that relationship and how they going to manage the slightly world child. I mean, looking at early Leopold is is able to say the words he's wanted to say to Albert he is your son. He will not disappoint. How difficult is it for Leopold to to broach that subject openly and say what he wants to say here. What's that that the actual subtext in the scene? Well, I think he he's he's obviously saying light. You haven't disappointed me? They have that bond. The bond has been repaired. By that point, the big set piece in this episode is the gorgeous -ly elaborate Georgian ball that Victoria throws a how much fun was this to to film. You know, it was really good fun in the end broken up rehearsals for the dancing, the kind of Korda Bala. They did a lot of a lot of rehearsal, and we generate all myself and others of the kind of principal actors. They grabbed us when we went shooting other stuff. Yes. But we got it together. Actually, and your it's it's interesting so filming dances. Because of course, you I the whole piece, but then when you're filming it it's broken up into twenty segments starring actually doing it again. And again, and again, and again, but it was it was fun to do was there actually music on the set or were you dancing to sort of nothingness? Sometimes it was music label. Then cut it, and you would sometimes have a air pieces secreted on beneath you'll wig too. Trying vaguely keep in time with what you meant to be doing before this next question.

Leopold remarks about the gathering of the happy Coburg trio. I mean court at the Georgian ball does Leopold truly not recognized fidora or is he deliberately snubbing her. I think he's I think he's a little vague about who she is. He hasn't seen for very long time. But he also is aware of what a manipulator. She is and wants to kind of keep her in place and what Strange's throughout the season. I had a theory that Feodor was an imposter one by Leopold, not recognizing her. What was your take on that moment specifically as it just Leopold being Leopold? I think it's Leopold being Leopold and being a little bit wicked and a little bit vague. And you're not wanting to give her any status. Really really good fun working with Kate Fleetwood. We laughed a lot when we were meant to be. I mean Leopold Winfield confronts him about backing the heir to the throne rather than her Leopold says it was long ago and her response is not for me. Does he see her enduring sense of pain at all here? Does he feel it? No. I don't think he does feel it because I think he he views her as a as a municipal later on a thorn in the side, Victoria. I think. Victoria, certainly believes that Feodor is out for revenge to really center way. So she wouldn't marry George my late father in law like nothing better than to comment. His brothers with the notion that he could still produce an air and your door was just a pawn in that game. You knew she blames me. She wants to have her revenge venture. Oh, you exaggerate, Victoria. What could a panelist German Princess possibly due to hurt the Queen of England. But the fact remains that she could do quite a lot of damage actually does he see her at all as a threat or is. She just a secondary thought. I think he sort of sees a more of a more of an Ericsson truly she's not gonna do that much damage. I mean, he has very specific views on monarchy that it ought to be shrouded in mystery, not paraded as a what he says public spectacle. Is this an old school philosophy that he's espousing here? One in keeping with the notion of the divine right of kings. Yes. I think I think he absolutely fails that it should be. Kept behind kept behind closed doors on there should be mystery to it. I think he absolutely does and interest because I'm also in the crown as you probably know. Similar similar seems redressed in that as well. But I guess Victoria, was one of the first that was opening things up, but Pryatta, her the monarchy had been treated like. As fodder for satirists. Some were they were really taken apart in newspapers and journals and cartoons of Georgian England. They were much more robustly traduced, treat untreated, generally than they were in Victorian times, the sort of the the the majesty the mystery of the monarchy kinda came back in a way, I think and Victoria in some ways was was protected from all of that. Do you have a favorite scene from these last three seasons, Victoria? That work the the big scene with Tom the big the big fight with Thome was really. Fun and rewarding to do. And some of the some of the big set pieces the bull scenes, which can be quite laborious to film, but at say working working on this and at the same time, I was fooling sometimes I was going from Buckingham Palace in eighteen forty two whenever it was in the next day IBM Buckingham Palace in nineteen fifty three down in London a minute was it was a very happy time. And I was juggling. The the first the crown with the first series of Victoria, which was a very nice position to be in Michael house who's production designer who died are sadly last year. Did absolute wonders I think the the world he created for us to plan was quite extraordinary in his imagination and how he could decorate the palace. He went to local kind of some cheap sort of cheap stores would buy kids. Sets of Armagh little plastic gold, dressing up armor and think right. We can use those an AB cheapest chips, and he within spray them gold, and they will be decorating parts of the palace. It was just brilliant the work. He did on the toria really on the set that we filmed in up in your show was monumental and kind of the imaginative workforce in a way, he was a he was a kind of genius Mike wows and throughout your career. You've played several Royal personages including old, but Prince Charles in the Queen king. George third Edward the eighth K David Duke of Windsor. I in the crown why do you think you're so often cast as royalty? I really don't know why why I'm cost royalty. Because I'm a I'm a kind of common boy from Essex, which is sort of east of London people who don't know. I don't know ready. I don't know I've done quite a lot on stage and on film of real people as it were dump. I did Benjamin Britten Alan Bennett the national play George Bush in David hare play at the national. I've done lots of historical characters, which is fun to do. But brings it so kind of issues as well. Because you're not you're never going to be. Everybody's idea of Prince Charles or somebody's going to go to Rome. But you imagine imaginatively have to try and take a leap something having done wheel research, and then sort of absorb it. And then kind of let go let go of it and give your version of the window. Prince Charles squad, a responsibility. Sometimes you feel that you shouldn't judge these people in a way. Mean after playing after playing Charles in the Queen you you've run into the prince of Wales since did he say anything to you about your performance? No, he's never he's looked at me with a bit of a sort of twinkle in his eye of I know what you've been doing. But he's never he's never actually he's never actually said anything to me now. I'm often haunted by your performances your Duke of Windsor in the crown. I think is extrordinary what was your spurious like on that series? It was one of the happiest jobs I've ever done. It was an I became completely obsessed with the and duchess of Windsor and read every book watched what little there was on available of footage. What kinds of kind of pathway news footage is of of how he was physically I'm much bigger than much taller than he was. But I became totally sort of obsessed with the story and just loved playing him. He also will fantastic close. So that was that was good too. And. The choices. He made his foolishness his naive t the fact that he that he then sort of floated through the rest of his life. Without any real purpose that there was a sort of Shakespearian in. Tragically sort of nature to to his life. Really that I found fascinating. The actors in the crown were replaced with older actors for the third yesterday were what are your feelings about that? It was there was some debates one point that Lee Williams who played the duchess and myself might sneak through because we were sort of peripheral royals and that we might get through in season three. But I completely understand that they they wanted a clean sweep unto up aegis. Oh, I completely get that. I was sad. Not to to do his his complete story. I would have liked that. Because there was a wonderful description of his final meeting with the Queen ten days before he died, and I would like to let with played that. But there will. Will you had been open to to getting aged up with some a lot of makeup totally and possibly not not much makeup. Yeah. It's been really good. It's been an and it was a wonderful thing that both the production of Victoria, and the producers of the crown in neighborhood me to to play Leopold, and and gca Windsor, and that they were up for sort of helping to finesse a make it possible for me to do both very lucky. Alex jennings. Thank you. So very much. Thank you. And we are back with daisy Goodwin. Welcome. Hi. As Britain moves towards a decimal currency. New coin is introduced worth a tenth of a pound called the Florin. Is it true that the name of the coin the Florin is offered by Leopold? No. But he could easily have done. I think it was just a it was just a name that came into. Came in that that that sounded right? It was a medieval I mean, they were Florence on the continent. So it's a sort of it's kind of international name for coin. The design for the so-called. Godless Florin has Victoria throwing off convention by wearing a crown and without the traditional inscription. But by the grace of God was this a shock to the British public and even to Victoria herself. Well, high wearing the crown that was her idea, but the the the the lack of inscription that was Alba's fooled. It was meant to be, but Al but left it off. And that was something that absolutely enraged, Victoria. Factor fiction. Queen Victoria's private drawings of domestic life at the palace ended up in the papers. They didn't end up in the papers. But they were they were sold. You know, they were sold as prints by the print mica. So they did people they were seen by people women women to have seen them. So they were you know, it was a huge scandal. At the time. I'm Victoria now. But were you know, felt horrified by this? What was the relationship between Feodor Leopold in real life, given that they lived so closely to one another did she blame him for being the puppet master that cost her the throne? I think she probably did. Yes. I mean, they they didn't seem jumping very often poof into was completed elected bonus in the family 'cause she had night power money. Nice status factor. Fiction did Albert believe in phonology and did Victorian Albert have their children's heads examined by George coom. That is completely true. They were. They did leave in for Jan they really thought that phonology would help explain my birdie was say backward in comparison to his older sister factor fiction. Did Victoria thrown elaborate Georgian costumed christening ball after Arthur's birth. She did throw an elaborate Georgian bul in the fashions of a hundred years ago. I didn't even it was actually after the christening. But it was it certainly happened around that time, and it's just an extraordinary event. And I think they mazing costumes. That's wonderful pictures from the real that you can you can look online does Victoria name Arthur after the Duke of Wellington, Arthur Wellesley. Yes, she does. Yes. She does that was that was completely true Victorian Albert's row heats up to a new level in this episode with Victoria going so far as to smash a bust and even slap Albert across the face after he. Says that her quote character is over developed in the area of self esteem. Did their marriage reach a low point like this in real life. How bad things get for them. I think it did. I mean, again, you know, it's home to to it's very hard to get fucked to get the FOX onless because you know, it's not something, Victoria rights above. But one of the things she does do whenever she's had arrived with all, but she wants to darling Girling. I love him say much my angel. And I think that's because she knows that he reads Dari. So she's trying to apologize behavior. I think that's definitely is sense at this time in their marriage that Albert is trying to control her and she doesn't want to be controlled. And you can see in the gaps in the children that there is a physical distance between them the haven't been previously. Daisy goodwin. Thank you. So very, much pleasure. Her serene highness Feodor has been a prickly outsider this season of Victoria scheming against her strange. Half sister, the Queen while the kingdom seeds with rebellion and unrealized reform. She feels and critically haunt them by she missed out on being Queen. She could have married the King, George and she was sent packed off. By the mutual mother because the mother wanted Victoria to be Queen as huge amount of built up resentment next week on the podcast, actor Kate Fleetwood joins us to discuss how it felt to play the severe and sour Princess Feodor.

"It was a weapon, of course, it was an energy weapon. Absolutely. What short of energy is this that we're talking about. I believe it's our f- radiofrequency energy in the microwave range. Mark Lindsay is a State Department security officer who worked in the US consulate in one show, China there is no shadow of doubt in my mind that this was directed attack against my neighbor. And I his neighbor was Catherine Werner, it was intense pressure on both of my temples. And I remember looking around for where the sound was coming from because it was painful. Thank you. Steve cases, a billionaire with a bus on a mission steering. Venture capitalists and their money to areas, they've typically overlooked. I started this company with only five hundred dollars in my pocket. Scalp places like this old church, and Memphis, re have become the stage entrepreneurs to pitch their products. The winner of the pitch competition is sound ways and hope to get a share of cases one hundred fifty million dollar fund. Monaco is a myth, and we live on it. Monaco is Maserati and Martinez. Mega yachts and a famous casino. Maybe tiny Monaco has more multimillionaires per square foot than any other country. This was actually a orange grove. It's ruler Prince Albert Grace Kelly son has seen it all remember different parties and luncheons in the summer where we'd have Frank Sinatra. Kirk Douglas, Gregory Peck mine site, so imagine Sinatra. I'm Steve Kroft. I'm Leslie stall. I'm Scott Pelley. I'm interested in Cooper. I'm Sharon, Fonsi. I'm Bill Whitaker. Those stories tonight on sixty minutes. In two thousand sixteen and seventeen twenty five Americans including CIA agents who worked in the US embassy in Cuba, suffered serious brain injuries, causing impaired vision and memory loss among other persistent symptoms. Now, we've learned that at least fifteen American officials in China suffered unexplained brain trauma soon after the FBI is now investigating whether these Americans were attacked by a mysterious weapon. That leaves no trace over many months. We have been collecting evidence of what appears to be a hostile foreign governments plan to target American serving abroad and their families for me. It was November twenty seventeen when I started to feel lightheaded a lot. I was getting more headaches. My wife was getting headaches too. We worked Lindsay is a State Department security officer who worked in the US consulate in one show China. He says that he and his wife began to suffer after hearing strange sounds in their apartment picks her holding marble, then picture if you had like a six foot diameter funnel metal funnel the sound that marble would make as it goes around. And it progressively gets faster as it gets goes down towards the whole at the end. It's a sound like I've never heard before this subtle like deny here that no it was it was actually somewhat loud. I heard about three or four times always in the same spot. Always over my son's crib. And always right before we go to bed Lindsey wears prescribe glasses because sensitivity to light is among his persistent symptoms. The symptoms were progressively getting worse with me my headaches getting worse. The most concerning symptom for me was memory loss, especially short term memory loss. Mark Lindsay believes he was targeted because of his work. He uses top secret equipment to analyze. Electronic threats to diplomatic missions. There is no shadow of doubt in my mind that this was directed attack against my neighbor. And I his neighbor was Catherine Werner who lived one floor up. She's a US Commerce Department trade officer who promoted American business from the Guan Zho consulate. I woke up in the middle of the night night could feel the sound in my head. It was an intense pressure on both of my temples at the same time. I heard of this low humming sound, and it was also leading. And I remember looking around for where the sound was coming from because it was painful when do I notice that you weren't feeling well October of two thousand seventeen I started to get hives all over my body, really bad hives I woke up with headaches every day. I started to feel tired the simplest things would just make me. Very very tired growing. Worse overtime. They were. Yes. My symptoms would get so bad that I would throw up or I would wake up with nosebleeds. She shows even her doors were throwing up blood Werner assumed her. Illness was connected to China's toxic smog. She didn't know it at the time. But her symptoms were the same that American officials in Havana had suffered since twenty sixteen. The US. The there is all the close as a result. We hadn't heard about what happened in Cuba. I mean there were headlines in the news about hearing loss and attacked to our diplomats. But we didn't know the details. Catherine Warner became so ill. Her mother traveled from the US to live with her see spent almost three months with me during that time. She also got very ill. And she and I shared the same symptoms, which short shift did your mother have headaches. And ringing in our ears. We also started to. Both. Have difficulty recalling words after reporting her experiences. Werner was medically evacuated to the US for treatment. US agencies are investigating, but Mark Lindsay has a theory. This was directed standoff attack against my apartment, it was a weapon, of course, it was an energy weapon. Absolutely. What short of energy is this that we're talking about either leave. It's our f- radiofrequency energy in the microwave range ACLU that supports that theory was revealed by the national security agency in two thousand fourteen this NSA statement describes such a weapon as a high powered microwave system weapon that may have the ability to weaken intimidate or kill an enemy overtime without leaving evidence. The statement goes on to say this weapon is designed to bay the targets living quarters in microwaves. The NSA disclosed this in a workers compensation case filed by former NSA employee Mike back when you look back across your career. Is there any incident that lean you to believe that it could be responsible for your Parkinson's disease? Yes. In the nineteen nineties beckoned NSA co worker were on assignment overseas years later, he says they developed Parkinson's disease at the same time in nineteen ninety six a colleague of mine Chuck bet, and I traveled to a hostile country and work there for about a week and. I can't say where the hostile country the density of it because it's still classified. Yes. But it was not Cuba or China. You believe that you and Chuck about were attacked with this microwave weapon. Yes. I had a pretty good working knowledge of the Hossa country's intelligence services. What they do to people what they have done what their motives operandi is Mike Beck says more intelligence has come in recently, which he shared in a classified briefing with congressional investigators Mike you can't discuss any of these details because they're all classified. But in your opinion, does the new information that you brief the house and Senate intelligence committee staff on in any way, relate to what happened in Cuba, and China, it's relevant to Cuba, and China cases. No one has. Confirmed that what Beck says happened to him is related to at least forty Americans injured in China and Cuba while Beck suffers from Parkinson's. The recent patients are being treated for the same kind of symptoms that doctors would expect from a concussion thinkers, Dr Tina Shetty is Mark Lindsay's neurologist. Mark initially came to me reporting symptoms of headache memory loss, sleep difficulties emotionality, and irritability. And what did you make of that in the early days? I was very surprised. He did not have any history of any trauma or blow to his head. But he reported a constellation of neurologic symptoms, which are characteristic of mild traumatic brain injury without any history of socio had trauma. I still notice it, but that has improved when I how their brains were injured is the subject of study at the university of Pennsylvania center for brain injury and repair. It's to be all the doctor Shetty is not part of that study. But her patient, Mark Lindsay Hansen. Your presumption is that something happen. And which caused a functional brain injury of widespread brain networks because he has symptoms to reflect a multitude of brain networks. What Dr should he described mirrors the findings published so far by the university of Pennsylvania study, they have said that are symptoms are exactly what they saw in Cuba. And that we have the full suite of findings that they had their Robin and Britta Garfield are among the forty patients in rolled in the university of Pennsylvania study like Kathryn Werner, Robin. Garfield is a trade officer with the Commerce Department. He was posted with his wife and two young children in Shanghai. I don't know when the sound started. I do know that it was for months on end acidy next to win and something hit me fend the left side. And at first it felt like an electric shock. And then it paralyzed me. So I was not able to move or speak. You so hard. You felt like you were in danger in the room. Yes, they say the children suffered blurred vision and loss of balance your daughter was literally falling down. Yes. She fell down multiple times a day. We went on a walk and she just fell on her face. It was very abnormal. She never does said. And then a second time to completely lost her balance and fell to the side when spring the secretary of state, Mike Pompeo confirmed the case of Catherine Werner, you pin found her brain injuries matched the cube victims we had an incident in Guangzhou that the medical indications are very similar and entirely consistent with the medical indications that have taken place to Americans working in Cuba. But. For reasons that are unclear the State Department is raising doubt about the other fourteen China cases, the State Department's medical office sent Mark Lindsay this note that says we have reached the decision that your symptoms and findings do not correlate with the Havana cohort. They tried tonight. They try to cover it up. They tried to minimize it. Why would the State Department minimize this because it's China because we have such a large trade relationship with them? You can push around Cuba trade relations, minimal with China. That's a different beast right State Department. Doctors told Robin Garfield his illness stems from a baseball injury seventeen years ago, which does not explain his wife and children, it has very complicated geopolitical relationship between the US and China so that to me feels like why this determinations being being made what does it mean for your benefits today that the State Department is refusing? To call this an attack it has significant impact on our our life. Our finances Mike career as well likely. I have not been afforded time for my rehabilitation being classified as pre existing injury means that I don't have access to paid leave. It also means that after one year, my medical bills will not be covered. Currently the China. Patients have the attention of at least one member of the Senate Foreign Relations committee Jeanne Shaheen route secretary Pompeo, the group from China is increasingly feeling isolated and left behind by the State Department, the State Department declined an interview, but in a statement to sixty minutes, it said we will continue to provide our colleagues the care they need regardless of their diagnosis or the location. Of their medical evacuation. A State Department official told us that the Cuba patients are victims of an attack. But state hasn't made the same determination for the China patients. The department has asked the national academies of science to assist in the medical investigation. The FBI is also investigating intelligence sources told us that in addition to Cuba and China Russia is a suspect. But if microwaves were used the technology is not rare it could be more than one country is using it US intelligence is still debating what cars the injuries you were in harm's way. And you didn't know it. Exactly, I didn't know it. And I'm afraid that others may be in harm's way. And may not know it. I don't know what the future looks like for me. But I would do anything in my power to prevent this from happening to somebody else serving their country. Americans are not the only ones who've been attacked, according to the Canadian government. Fifteen Canadians were injured in Cuba, including diplomats and their families. For years pundits have declared the United States has split into two America's a nation divided by politics geography and the economy, but one tech icon believes he can help even out the playing field. Steve case the man who co-founded America Online and injected the jingle you've got mail into the American lexicon is now trying to steer venture capitalists and their money to areas, they've typically overlooked mostly small towns and cities in the middle of the country, his vehicle to do that is a one hundred fifty million dollar investment fund and a thirty five foot long. Bright red bus. We joined the billionaire on his bus for recent road trip. Let's go and soon found ourselves aiming for the edge of a wheatfield in Tennessee. Steve case is here to meet a few entrepreneurs who say they've created a new technology that could revolutionize the way America farms. These robots are actually miniature tractors that are operated remotely able to do is cut that travel time down to one third and maximize productive time in field. Do you enterpreneurs are looking for a cash infusion from case to jump start? Their business case is looking for the next big idea and is deep in his quest. Typically, how hard is it been for these guys out here to get the attention of super hard super heart? It's the right now seventy five percent of venture capital goes to three states, California, New York, Massachusetts, most of the venture capitals on the coast not in the middle country. And we. Have to change them tech behemoths like Amazon and Google have doubled down on big cities. But case believes the best opportunities are off the beaten path. And that's where the bus comes in. Thank you. Case in his team are scouring the middle of the country. Looking for promising ideas overlooked by Silicon Valley, they've traveled to thirty eight cities and twenty six states thousands of miles often spending twelve hours a day on the road. You're a successful guy. You've made a fortune. Why in the world do you wanna ride around on a bus in the middle of the country for twelve hours a day day after day because I believe in these entrepreneurs believes believe in them from Washington DC and send your people out. But you go there and you get on the bus and you drive around. So why are you on the bus? I wanna get everybody on the bus entrepreneur like me all over the country. Most people are not paying attention to them most people in their communities. Don't believe in them. Most people on the coast don't think there's anything interesting innovative happening in the middle of country so convinced there is money to be made. In the middle of America case raised a hundred. Fifty million dollars to create what he calls the rise of the rest fund the rest referring to entre preneurs in cities like Indianapolis, Detroit and Birmingham areas usually overlooked by venture capitalists, if you care about the city you have to invest in startups, today's stop Memphis. I started this company with only five hundred dollars in my pocket. Dozens of entrepreneurs have gathered in dusty church to pitch case and his team their ideas mung the competitors. The inventor of new headlight this technology converse to hubby into a low beam elimination. The maker of biodegradable medical device, we are the first to encapsulate the benefits of Honey create a solid product and deliver. It is an implant to heal you internally. And former musician who has come up with a better way for fellow musicians to get paid for their work. We've built a IMDB style database for the music industry that helps give credit where credit is due. Sweet bile backstage case in his team quickly vote seven. Minutes later. The winner of the pitch competition is sound way. Winner gets a hundred thousand dollars to go their business Huckabee change for case. But a shot of adrenaline for the city's struggling economy. The poverty rate. Memphis is almost two times the national average crime is rampant and thirty thousand people have left the city in the last decade the face. This is a hard sell to investors and entrepreneurs have paid for it. I realize I spent a lot of time travel around the country there. Most people in this country wake up in the morning. Anxious fearful about the future you're fearful because the things they see happening. Mostly on the coast are hurting their family hurting their community. See these Silicon Valley companies bragging about disruption. Sometimes that's code words for job destruction in their backyard and drop them, they're losing jobs, not gaining jobs. We feel that when you go there. Do you feel that they think we've kind of been forgotten here straight? They happen forgotten. Yeah. It's not about a feeling about being left behind. They have been left behind. We have to kind of level the playing field. So everybody everywhere really does feel like they have a shot at the American dream right now, they don't JD Vance agrees. It's the reason he became cases partner in the rise of the rest fund Vance route the New York Times bestseller, hillbilly elegy. Do you still consider yourself hillbilly? I certainly do. I certainly do. It's the thing. I'm proudest of hillbilly a blue blazer. Yeah. Well, my my wife dressed me. So you can talk about that Vance's book. Details upbringing in Appalachia surrounded by heartbreaking poverty, drug addiction and instability after a stint in the marines, then earning degrees from Ohio State and Yale Law School. Vance began a career as a high tech investor in Silicon Valley definitely get a little bit skeptical when somebody's developing new app for parking, they tell me they're changing world. So I do think sometimes folks in San Francisco can drink a little bit too much of their own Kool aid discouraged by so-called transformational technologies that weren't two years ago. Vance moved back to a high auto to help run the rise of the rest fund. He says many of his Silicon Valley friends had preconceived ideas about people from small towns Tate, you ever feel like you had to be defensive about where you were from. Oh, sure. Sure. I felt like I definitely had to defend this part of the world had to defend. Of the people who lived here. But from what I think defend them from the assumption that they're all stupid. And that they don't know what they really want in the world. I think there is this. This presumption that they're only people who live here are the people who are forced to live here. They can't get out or they're too dumb to know that they should leave. And that's just not true. I think people are here because they care about their communities, and they want to build something special here. Just as folks in San Francisco when build something special there, Kentucky native Jonathan Webb wants to build something special in his home state. We met in in pike Ville Kentucky. Once a thriving coal town in the heart of Appalachia. It's been hemorrhaging jobs and residents one in three people here make less than twelve thousand dollars a year living below the poverty line. Web thinks it's the perfect place to build high tech greenhouses. And here's why most US produce comes from the west in Mexico, traveling thousands of miles to get to our plates. Web says Kentucky's central location means he can save on fuel costs and get fresher products to stores faster. We can get to seventy percent of the US population. In a one day drive rise of the rest has invested. In webs idea are want to be a high school student in eastern Kentucky right now. Now, he's trying to convince the willful high school students here there is a future in eastern Kentucky. There's not anything here now. And I hope and pray for our community that does come back here. But as of now, it's impossible for all of us to say, even though ninety percent of us want to be able to leave the kind of lobster where we could support ourselves in a fine Lynton, my whole family's here. They've been near. But there's just there's nothing here. No jobs. Nothing. You worry about your. Parents. And like you worry how how are you going to make? I mean, how I mean how can they live paycheck to paycheck and you wanna help, but there's just no future free pike fill like much of the region has been gripped by the opioid epidemic. Overdose. Right. Huge. So many people they around here like you. I mean, that's what it is. Jonathon Webb has contracts with local rehab centers to hire recovering. Addicts starting salaries will be thirteen dollars an hour. Nearly double Kentucky's minimum wage folks need opportunity, and if they don't have opportunity we're going to continue in that cycle here. This WalMart is the town's biggest employer and the hills hero scarred with ads for personal injury attorneys. We counted fifteen of them in town and eastern Kentucky has one of the highest rates in the country for people who've stopped looking for work, and then play devil's advocate people who say this is an area that's been riddled with a drug problem. Them. They don't really have the desire to work. What do you say to that? How do you answer that we shouldn't just accept that? The store should be one of decline, and that's what I think at its core. What rise the rest is about is refusing to see the worst in any place. We want to see the best venture capitalist. So I'm pretty comfortable with risk. If you look even the best venture capitalists of very large share of the companies that they invest in fail. And to me what we alternately want is to recognize that just because a place is risky doesn't mean. It can't alternately be productive. I understand. No. It's certainly not easy. And I don't think that five years from now we're gonna completely change the economy of Appalachia or any other part of the country. But I do think that what you're seeing is some real long-term Amenam to bring more economic prosperity too broad parts of the country. Not just a few cities on the coasts past year. The rise of the rest has invested in over a hundred companies and sixty three cities some of the biggest names in business or invest. There's members of WalMart's Wilton family former Facebook, president show and Parker and Google's Eric Schmidt. The one thing not just offering cash but advice to the entrepreneurs. Had some success watchmaker shine Nola, the they discovered on their first bus tour through Detroit now has more than thirty stores in Baltimore City that has long struggled with pockets of extreme poverty. They invested in Cadillac a company that developed an artificial intelligence test Twi dentist by people with aptitude for software development, no experience or education required. Pass the test and Cadillac, we'll train you company. President Jacob sue says about ninety percent of their trainees land six figure jobs as software developers or people come from coal walks of life. We have fast food workers. We have teachers musicians artists truck drivers security guards, we have people come from all over right into these into these positions Cadillac is rapidly expanding and plans to open in twenty cities in the next two years. This is in kindergarten engineering is the real deal or not doing just for charity. We're doing it. Because we found a better way back in pike Ville, JD Vance and Jonathon Webb are hunting for a second greenhouse site on top of an abandoned mind. Do you think you're gonna make money? I mean is this just that feels good for the region? Or is this good investment doing this certainly because it feels good? But we think it will work to the stakes are high not just for the entrepreneurs. But Steve case says for the country for the skeptics who say this is just a vanity project for Steve case, they can say whatever they want. It's important. Why does it matter if it doesn't happen? Then what we're going to take? What's already a pretty big divide this country? And it's going to get a lot worse to get it into this. Venture capitalists. You have to be successful. You have to make money. So how much pressure is there to get this? Right. We've got to get this, right? This to me really is about the future of America. There's a reason Monaco has often been described as a sunny place for shady people for decades, crooks courtesans and con artists were drawn to this slip of land by the sea because of its wealthy residents. It's famous casino and its willingness to ignore pesky banking regulations. It's the smallest country in the world outside the Vatican less than one square mile and in America, it's been associated with glamour ever since movie star Grace Kelly became Princess of Monaco in the nineteen fifties today, it's home to more multimillionaires per square foot than any other country, while Grace Kelly son Prince Albert has been trying to push his nation into the twenty first century. It unapologetically remains a place where you can parade your jewels park your money and not pay any income tax. There are certainly prettier parts of Europe. But it's Monaco where the super-rich are clamoring to get in. For many Monaco is synonymous with the highlight. Must rotties and Martinez. Mega yachts and motorboats. Fisher island. All the wealthiest people rent that Steven Saltzman alone time resident whose job among other things is to help wealthy foreigners move here. His father produced the early JAMES BOND films, Stephen pitches, the principality with the hyperbole of a Hollywood producer. Topa utopia. It's a country, no sovereign debt. Well, hunger different nationalities. Live together protected in piece by a planet. Loving prince. Is you Joe Pia this wealthy though? Well, I'm talking about utopia because it's a perfect society a perfect society. The first thing you really notice about Monaco is how small it is less than a square mile carved out of the coastline of France cramped alcove of the aging apartments hugging Herber barely big enough for the boats dock year, they're surly more yachts in utopia than I imagined. There would be well this is heaven. It's the mecca of the, you know, they always say two times in Yeltsin that fund the day you buy it in the Senate. With enough money. You can buy just about anything in Monaco. You're more luxury shops than supermarkets. Fundraisers, or the social events of the summer, and whatever you have you can flaunt it without fear. Monaco, isn't a police state. But there are cops everywhere. Very polite salute when they see you. But make no mistake there watching everything not just with cops on corners. But cameras lots of them clocking pedestrians and each car that comes into the country. They see everything see everything, and I'm happy about that. Because I know that I'm living safety, I'm secure, and that the government of this country takes that very seriously. Also takes the good life. Very seriously at times feels as much like a country club as a country membership will cost you to become a resident you have to prove you make a lot of money or have more than half a million dollars in the Bank, and you have to promise to live here. Six months of the year. There's not much of a beach to speak of and traffic can be a nightmare. So what's the peel? A big one is taxes in Monaco, you pay no income tax rarely pay capital gains or inheritance tax. That is unless you're American the IRS taxes. You no matter where you live Monaco may be known as a tax haven, but around here that's kind of a touchy subject. No one has cheating on the taxes. Sales tax. We pay property tax. We pay taxing on our employees, and we pay tax on corporate profits there need more taxes, but part of the appeal has gotta be while I can come here, and I don't have to pay income tax. The fact that Monaco doesn't need income tax may be part of the attraction, but it may be somebody who would also like to have their boat living security, and and not worry about that dole to going down to the supermarket and getting knifed. Dim view the rest of the world that serious crime is was non existent in Monaco. That's part of the attraction for tourists as well. Every day. They flood the principality hoping to get a glimpse of how the one percent live Monaco is a myth, and we live on it. People want to believe in the myth. They wanna come and see it. That's what people expect yawn. Anthony, no gifts grew up with that myth. His family has been here for more than two hundred years, which makes him something of a rarity. He's a citizen. It's good to be a citizen here. Citizens are known as Montague asks. And it's almost impossible for foreigners to become one and men are hell long. They've been here out of the thirty eight thousand people in Monaco, less than a quarter our citizens most monta gas or not millionaires and they couldn't afford to live in their own country without special privileges in a variety of subsidies. You see people driving around the Lamborghinis Bentleys and parking them out on the street. Is there tension? No because foreigners are our wealth. The foreigners are a source of wealth for citizens. There's not huge industries here. There's not farming here. That's how the country makes money exactly. Two hundred country also makes money hosting prestigious international events. Biggest bowl the historic grand prix takes place each spring and attracts tens of thousands of visitors top Formula, one team some of the drivers don't have to commute very form. World champion Lewis Hamilton lives here along with dozens of store athletes in a variety of top sports. Four days. Twenty turbocharged multi million dollar machines hurdle for Monaco's winding narrow streets. There's nowhere in the principality. You can escape the deafening. Roar. Yawn. Anthony Noga says grandfather founded the now legendary race ninety years ago. So for a local what is race weekend. Like it's heaven and hell heaven because seven for guys like me would love it. And I'm having a real good time. They can be held when you live right in that building. And you don't have a pass to go watch the race or you don't like hearing music. Or loud people coming to party? Or a lot of loud people wandering around race weekend by day. They dance party by the race track. At night. The action moves to the doctor in the horror. With champagne flows dance or do this all night. Magin what Grace Kelly would make it. She was Hollywood royalty in nineteen fifty six when she married Prince Rainier his family had ruled over the principality for seven hundred years. It was called the wedding of the century. And with it in the minds of many Americans a fairy tale was born. Indeed, it seventy was a great day in the long history of. Would stores came calling high rollers from America flock to gambling's high temple the ornate casino in the tiny neighborhood of Monte Carlo so often immortalized in movies name's bond. James barth? Hello. Hello. Hello. That was the Monaco that Grace Kelly son Prince Albert grew up in Joel. The palace gardens were his playground. I remember different parties luncheons in the summer where we'd have Frank Sinatra. Kirk Douglas, Gregory Peck. And mine sites magin Sinatra around here. The prince is famously shy. And surprisingly accessible title is a big one for such a small country. He's referred to as his serene highness can really see everything from aerial. He's no figurehead. He runs this place prince Mayer CEO, and in many ways luxury landlord take a look at his desk. There's not a problem from international diplomacy to traffic troubles downtown that he doesn't oversee the buck starts and stops with him. Most people we talked to have referred to one time another as the boss. My father was called the bosses. Well, I viewed as an endearing term bosses usually do. It's not an not an easy responsibility. No matter what the size of the country is when Prince Albert ascended the throne fourteen years ago, Monaco had lost some of its luster the casino's fortunes faded and the principality had earned a dubious reputation for turning a blind eye to crooks and tax cheats. There was famous quote that Monica sunny place for shady people was that fair at a certain period in time. It was a pretty accurate description. But there were a lot of shady people here in the past Monaco is certainly not a place like that anymore. Prince Albert has publicly push to get the country line with nearly all international banking regulations. And he's been dubbed the green prints for his focus on climate change, and for mandating that all new construction needs to be environmentally sustainable. The problem is there isn't much space left to build on this two billion dollar project is underway. To add fifteen acres for luxury apartments by expanding out into the sea Monaco remains the most expensive real estate in the world and new developments like the Odeon tower are in high demand apartments are set aside here for the monta gas at a deep discount, perhaps the fanciest public housing in the world, though, there is a separate entrance for the super-rich. So which entrance still go into that one? This is the main on. Peter van note wick is a real estate broker on you think he's currently offering this five story penthouse in the odium take it onto the master bedroom. Floor the price three hundred million dollars, and this is on X retro on experience to Cup because it's a curved. It's a thirty eight thousand square foot marble clad mansion in the sky seven bedrooms movie theater, Jim gold fixtures, and what's an outdoor pool without a water slide. About four or five kitchens? Four kitchen. I mean, you don't wanna walk to another floor to get now. That would would you do that? Hardly command his act. The view is spectacular and the apartment perfect if money in taste or no object. You see that somebody who has a mega yacht a three hundred million dollar Yod and wants to settle down somewhere. Yeah. Maybe the gentlemen will change his wife and the wife will not like the sea and says I want to if in a nice, Vilna gentlemen will change. So you know, you have all there's there's a lot of that goes on. Certainly not for everyone. Then again, that's the whole idea. One of his, you know, like a dream that he met his perfect Slavia brea. Tori is an Italian businessman who moved here ten years ago. Monaco, Albert, the prince, but Flavio is king of the night.

In this age of instability, uncertainty and inequality, it may seem strange this Oddo Acis of opulence still exists. The Monaco wants you to forget about all that have some champagne enjoy the party, I worry from here. The rest of the world is far far away. Now an update on a story. We first reported for years ago. Our investigation of lumber liquidators Chinese made laminate flooring revealed high levels of formaldehyde that fail to meet health and safety standards this past week in a settlement with the Justice department. The flooring company agreed to pay thirty three million dollars in fines and forfeitures for misleading. It's investors by denying our findings and hiding its own internal information.

Imagine you're in a beautiful old church in England the year is eighteen, twenty seven and you're at the coronation or royal crowning ceremony a new monarch. All around you rich people are dressed in beautiful clothing as the music starts in enters the princess who is about to be crowned Queen. She is only eighteen years old and as she enters the room, you can see that she is very short, but she is poised and calm. She has the confidence of someone who knew this is her path she is Queen Victoria. Queen Victoria was born in Eighteen nineteen in London England when she was born, her name was Alexandrina Victoria. Victoria as her nickname. Victoria was the daughter of Prince. The Duke of Kent and strengthen and princes. Victoria of Coburg saw filled, which was the sister of the King of Belgium leopold the first. Sadly when Victoria was only eighteen months old. died after that, her mother became domineering influence in her life domineering means bossy and controlling. She was raised by her mother her mother's accountant John Conroy. Because her family was wealthy, Victoria had a very privileged childhood this means as a child. She had very nice things and lived in luxury. She had the best foods the nicest clothes everything you can imagine a princess to have the Victoria was said to be kind warmhearted and lively. She loved dolls and had over one hundred of them in her playroom. Despite all of her toys and Nice Things Victoria was not allowed to play with other children a normal way. So she had very few friends. This made her sad but her best friend and constant companion was her nanny Lewis Lesin. Victoria's nanny taught her at the Royal Palace. She learned all the subjects that a wealthy child who may one day become Queen would need to learn including languages and politics. Victoria had a talent for drawing and painting and Governess Lewis encouraged her to pursue these hobbies. Victoria also really enjoyed journal writing. She started riding his child in continue to write in her journal for the rest of her life. While, she was growing up Victoria's mother and John. Conroy kept a very close eye on her. They knew that she may one day become the queen of England and they wanted to keep their influence over their child. themselves. Influence means control an impact while she was a child they never let Victoria be alone without one of them present. Victoria. Same Room as her mother until she was eighteen so that she wasn't on her own. Her mother in John Conroy were worried that if Toria was left alone that other people might try to influence her themselves and might turn her against them. Despite her mother's influence Victoria had feisty temperament, this means that she had high energy and was very independent in nature. She had a big personality, but physically, Victoria was famously very short as an adult. She was only four feet eleven inches tall. At the time of her birth Victoria was fifth in line to the throne but over the course of her childhood in early Teenage Years Victoria's uncles her father's three brothers all died without having living children. This meant that when Victoria turned eighteen in eighteen, thirty, seven, she knew she would become the queen of Great, Britain and Ireland. One of the first things that Queen Victoria did after becoming queen was to claim her own control and authority over her life and her rule. She moved out of her mother's bedroom and her own room she distance herself from her mother John, Conroy, which means that she broke away from them and their constant advice and influence she had seen how much were controlling her and trying to tell her what she should do and she didn't like it. Instead, the young Queen Victoria turned to her friend the prime minister at the time Lord Melbourne to teach her about. Her and her role as Queen, a prime minister is similar to a president in England. Lord Melvyn was Queen Victoria's first prime minister who sir for seven years from eighteen thirty, four, eighteen, forty, one. He helped each Queen Victoria about the details of being a queen and the royal she plays in government at the time. He acted as the Queen's adviser on politics. It was the person she could speak to openly and get advice during the early years of her reign. In eighteen forty Victoria married her cousin, Prince. Albert. Of Saxe Coburn in Gotha. She met Albert when she was just sixteen. Since Victoria was Queen Albert couldn't propose to her so she proposed him on October fifteenth. Eighteen. Thirty Nine At first the British public didn't like Prince Albert because he was not from the United? Kingdom. But from Germany. At first, he was not allowed to be involved in politics at all but eventually, people realize that he was a good person and Queen Victoria started to rely on his advice and he helped her to rule. During the early part of their marriage Queen Victoria and Prince Albert fought quite a bit. They both had strong personalities and didn't like to be wrong. But. They loved each other very much and we're committed to being successful together. Over time they started to get along better and Prince Albert started to give Queen Victoria advice and helped her make difficult decisions during her reign. And together, they had nine children. Their Palace was a busy and noisy place with the so many kids. Prince Albert. Also brought a number of German traditions to the United Kingdom that became popular for British people. This included the tradition of putting up a Christmas tree at the holidays. Prince Albert had put a Christmas tree up for a celebration at the royal home and a picture was taken of Queen Victoria Prince, Albert, and their children in front of the tree. The picture was in a popular newspaper at the time and afterwards many people in the UK and other parts of the British Empire. Started putting up. Christmas trees to. Life in Britain. During the nineteenth century was known as Victorian England because of Victoria's long rain and the stamp it and her personality placed on the country. During her reign Great Britain grew, it's industry more than ever before they built railways, bridges, underground sewer, and power energy networks throughout much of the empire. This is also known as industrialization. During her reign Britain also expanded the size of its territories doubling in size and taking over Canada, Australia India, and a number of other places in Africa the South Pacific. The Queen Love the British Empire felt that it was good. The Queen loved the British. And felt that it was good of the world that Britain grew to take over so much of it. Because Britain controlled. So many different parts of the world during her reign people started saying famous expression. The Sun never sets on the British Empire. During Queen Victoria's reign, she also supported scientists to do research and learn more about the world. There were great advances in science such as Darwin's theory of evolution, the Telegraph and the popular press or common newspapers. The main cities in England grew very large and more and more people learn to read the Victorian era was a time of great development for the. British. People. But not everyone always liked the decisions that Queen Victoria made during her life. There were seven assassination attempts made on her life. This means that our enemies tried to kill her so that she would no longer be in charge, but they did not succeed in their at temps. After several years of suffering from a sore stomach Victoria's beloved. Albert died of typhoid fever in eighteen sixty one at the age of forty two. Victoria was very sad. She had a plaster cast made of his hand and she kept by her side for the rest of her life. She also went into a twenty five year seclusion which means hiding on her own for the rest of her reign she wore black. Queen Victoria died on January twenty second nineteen one. When she died she had been the longest reigning woman monarch in the world. While she was queen her country saw great cultural expansion advances in industry science and communications in the building of railways and the London. Underground. And the expansion of the British Empire during her reign continues to have great impact on the world and the cultures of various places that were British colonies under her rule. Can you imagine being born into a royal family and knowing that you will one day be King or Queen? This would be a great amount of pressure for a child. Even though she had nice things and was very wealthy Victoria still cared about her people. Great Pride in her country and wanted to use her powers to do good things. With all our money she could have had just a good time, but instead she rose to the challenge to be a great queen to the British people. If you a king or queen of country what are some of the things that you would focus on? Where would you live? What are some of the things you would do to make it better? Thanks for listening and be to tune in next week.

"Golden state media concepts bring you book review podcast haven for bookworm of all ages and the whitest genres from mystery to memoirs. Romance to comedy fantasy scifi. If you love to read this is a podcast. It's the golden state needed concepts book review. Podcast i'm an welcomed and brought together. Gmc podcast network. I am your host. Sarah and i am going to talk about christmas books here. You thought christmas was over right. December twenty eighth. He made relieved that it's over. Maybe you've taken down all your christmas decorations. But i'm here to tell you something that you may or may not already know but the twelve days of christmas are actually after christmas in the retail world. Of course that makes more sense for them to be before christmas so they can do all the christmas sales and all that wonderful stuff. But it's actually a church thing. Eligible thing and the christmas season runs from christmas day december twenty fifth to january fifth. Which is the day before. Epiphany and epiphany is the day when a many churches celebrate the coming of the badge. I or the three kings to the nativity to the baby. Jesus etc little bit of trivia for you so the twelve days of christmas december twenty fifth two january fifth. There you go and I don't have a partridge in a pear tree for you or any of those other things. But i do have some of the books that i listen to on audio this year As you may remember from last year. I like to pile up pile up. Stock my my Phone or my ipod or whatever. I'm listening to at the time with christmas. Holiday books are starting about after thanksgiving. Not before thanksgiving after thanksgiving. Usually i a stock up on the christmas books. I stock up on the movies. I spend a lot of time with hallmark and This year was just in saying li crazy. I didn't do a fraction of the christmas stuff that i normally do. We didn't even put up a tree. Yup that's how crazy it was the most the most festive we were was that i put the garland submits on our mantle and then i put christmas presents under the my under the garland in front of the fireplace. Yep that's about as crazy as we got here in our house at any rate Even though you know in christmas is over. I do want to talk about some holiday books including hannukah. It is still hannukah That's almost over as well but we are still in there. So what is today. The last day the penultimate day have to look at the calendar. I can't remember. I apologize to my jewish readers for not knowing that off the top of my head listeners. And readers you know what i mean. And then maybe some new year's books as well We'll see how the episode goes and where the spirit takes me so let's actually talk about some audio books of that. I listen to so one of the authors that i discovered this year that you may already know about because she has clearly been around for a while. She has a lot of bookstore name and a lot of holiday books to her. Name her name is samantha. Chase and i m encountered her on I think i was doing the free trial of audible escape. I don't know if you've ever tried that again. Not being paid by audible but they have the audible escape which you can you pay an extra fee each month and then you can borrow books. It's not like the free credits that you get on audible but you can borrow as many books as many titles as you want and then return them as you're finished and gets more. Maybe there is a limit. I don't know. I did not test that to see how many i could borrow it once. But you do pay an extra fee. So i was trying the month-long free trial of that. And i discovered samantha chase and many of her holiday books so i think i think i listened to four this year. I'm looking at my list. Yes four the christmas cottage ever. After christmas and silver bell falls and holiday spice so christmas cottage and ever after actually A duality possibly more of more in the series. I think zoology. if i'm remembering correctly The christmas cottage sounds very chrissy. Has all of those wonderful tropes of unexpected encounters and awkward pasts and reuniting and all those good things but it is at the heart of the story. Is this legend about the christmas cottage. That if you spend your wedding night there then you will have a perfect happy. Wonderful loving marriage And that will last very long time and so this family has had it in. They have a tradition of christmas eve. Weddings and their daughter is convinced that she is going to get married there on christmas eve. She's not i mean she's convinced but she does have a fiancee there. There are plans in place but things just aren't going as smoothly as they could. And throughout the course of this she convinces her maid of honor that she needs to go and decorate the christmas cottage to her specifications for the wedding night and she has a lot of them so the maid of honor does and she happens to encounter the best man who is also the bride's brother and her secret crush from childhood whom she hasn't talked to in twelve years since they have twelve or fourteen years since they had a very awkward encounter when he was leaving for college and she was fourteen and she tried to kiss him and told him that she loved him and he just sort of freaked out and left for college yet. All those good tropes so the one thing leads to another as you can imagine. They have encounter in the christmas cottage. Let's just go with that. I think you can probably draw conclusions of your own as to what that encounter entailed which then the bride is very very unhappy and it goes from there so the first book is about the the best friend and the brother and then the second book ever after focuses on the bride from this first book. The sister who doesn't end up marrying the fiance in the first book. And i know that's a spoiler but you probably already guessed that she was getting married for many many many of the wrong reasons and so she has to figure out okay so she didn't have her perfect christmas wedding. She didn't have her perfect happy. ever after. what does that mean. who is she going to find. And then her story takes place a little bit around the around. The holidays Both both stories have thanksgiving in them. both stories have a little bit of christmas. In the my. I'm remembering correctly so and then you get to you. Get more of the rest of the family. Although here's the thing this is to families that are very close and These kids grew up together. That's why the two are. The two main characters are best friends. And you know how the brother is involved but in the second book after the the couple in the first book got together in the second book. Her family just kind of disappears. It's always always always about the in laws. Which are the parents of the main character in the second book in that makes sense but there are no her parents are nowhere to be found even though they live in the same town and they were you know supposedly all best friends with the other parents in the first book. There's no not one single mention of them throughout the book. I found that very very weird. Okay so there you go to To christmas stories from samantha chase to holiday stories. I also read listen to you know what i mean. A book called Holiday by gaslight. By mimi matthews so this was historical fiction christmas story taking place in the victorian era surprisingly maybe not surprisingly but no surprisingly intense for a victorian era romance. Because there is you know no encounter if you will. I don't know why i'm using euphemisms tonight. it's not like again and say sex. But you know. It's the victorian era so they court in very different ways than we would think of cording. Now just the thought of you know maybe holding hands or possibly kissing at some point. Is that the heroine aflutter. But i was actually impressed by how the author media matthews is the author again how the author managed to really build up that tension and make their be bromance and you know some sexual tension in the story where you maybe don't expect it in the repressed poor all of the victorian era so let's go ahead and take our first break of the podcast when we come back actually give you the description of holiday by gaslight so stay tuned you're listening to the mc book review podcast.

And before the break i was talking about a holiday by gaslight which is one of the audio books that i listened to in the month of december and i said i would give you the description. So here it is. It's a courtship of convenience. Sophie episode is quite willing to marry outside of class to ensure the survival of her family. But the darkly handsome. Mr edward sharpe is no run of the mill london merchant. He's grim and silent a man of little emotion or perhaps no emotion at all after two months of courtship. She's ready to put an end to things but severing ties with her. Taciturn suitor isn't as straightforward as sophie. Envisioned her parents are outraged. And then there's charles. Darwin prince albert and the draft. The dreaded gaslight. What's a girl to do. Except invite mr sharpe to apposite house for christmas and give him one last chance to win her. Only this time there will be no false formality. This time. they'll get to know each other for who they really are and a cover is beautiful. It's got this beautiful victorian red dress on the the woman on it It's christmas novella. So it's not a terribly long. Listen or read depending on where you're going with that. It was published last year november thirteenth. Twenty eighteen so fairly recent. And it's well first of all. I really love that. That description that line in the description where says and then there's charles darwin prince albert and that dreaded gaslight. What's a girl to do except clearly invite this. Mr darcy lake character or this mr raw raw rochester character to her home for the christmas party b. Which is one of those grand victorian christmas party that lasts ten days or something and is very elaborate in has all kinds of craziness happening Yeah you you're going to have to read or listen to the book to find out. What charles darwin prince albert and the gaslight have to do with his story yellow. It is called christmas by gas. Light i really enjoyed this one. I mean had a very definite jane airfield too. I mean jane austen feel to it where they didn't particularly care for like each other in the beginning. He's grumpy more she you know. She's very plainspoken very blunt in her speaking to extent. It's still a victorian era. And i just thought it was fun and it was much more romantic than you might expect from a victorian novel. Now it's of course a historic fiction historical fiction victorian novel it's not written in the victorian era it's It takes place in the victorian era. So you get a little bit more modern sensibilities in terms of the romance of this book. But i very much enjoyed this one. I liked that. There was a historical fiction component. To this year's reading another one that i discovered this year was Home for the holiday h. L. m. e. for the holiday and it is a Americans abroad. It's probably americans abroad series. Which is kind of what attracted me. At first glance. This is the second in that series. It is by miranda macleod. Which i think is kind of fun since we just had miranda o- on the podcast recently so here is the description of this book home for the holidays and american musician with a broken heart.

You know you've got that you've got the funny elements that that scene with the vicar and the llama. Yeah that's got some definite definite strange silly humor in it Yeah i i won't give anything away but you may. You may have noticed that. This book is about two women. It's a romance about two women. Yes it is and and maybe that seem strange you but i have to say for the people in the back. Some of you are just going to be like well.

If you don't know about that. I'm this is not the place for me to go into it. It's a mess. It's a hot spots. Let me just tell you that.

Sarah is rambling on like a drunken hub. Popped up on too much christmas sugar podcast or you know the more traditional. Gmc book review podcast released. Just depends on on how you're feeling. I feel like a drunk enough hopped up too much because matt sugar. I haven't had that much sugar or caffeine today. But i feel like i'm just like wow look today. Sorry about that too much. Christmas i dunno at any rate Another book that i listened to and was also part of a series was also by samantha's and that was holiday spice and that is the shaughnessy brothers a series. This one actually is about the sister in that series. I think there are six brothers and it's obvious when you listen to it that the six brothers have already had their own stories because they're all married and you get snippets of those stories throughout darcy. The daughters the sisters story so it is part of that series. It's also by samantha. Chase and has a lot of the classic tropes get snowed in and she get snowed in after a kind of random set of circumstances. Bring her into contact with what will be. You know what's will with the love of her life of course and you know you gotta love the snow in the snowden kind of theme because very christmassy and very wintery the league. It's not an october. Which i've been there and at any rate it's still feels kind of christmas eve but is still october at any rate. That was another one that i read. That was part of a series and then I read a novella by keelan and pamela. Ward let me just double check that. I got that name rate penelope word. Excuse me. it's called the christmas packed. it is as i said a novella and it is so classic classically hall. Marquis because it involves two characters kennedy riley and riley kennedy who both just happened to work for the same company their email often gets mixed up sent to the wrong person and that leads to shenanigans which lead to them making this christmas packed wherein he will go home with her To pretend to be her boyfriend at christmas and she will go with him to her. His brother's wedding The following week simple enough but of course nothing is ever simple in these types of and they have to get to learn to know each other and not be so judgmental and and all wonderful things that go into these classically books. I please no if you haven't already figured this out about me when i say hall marquee. I'm not using that derogatory. I'd like hallmark movies. I love the books that remind me of homework. I i can't help. But i like it. Oh and then one. More one more samantha. Chase book just mention Christmas in silver bill falls simply because it is about an author. Who's writing a christmas book. Even though she hates christmas and now she has to write this christmas story and she gets An inheritance from her grandmother that she's really never been never known and it's a cabinet and silver bell falls which constantly plays the song silver bells and drives her crazy and she has to learn a lot about her grandmother and her life and her family and herself and she has to read the christmas story. Okay and then. Finally the la- i think the last book. I think maybe listened to more than this but maybe not. It's enough was my final book. That i read from a series even though i've never read any of these series but need to go and check them out is virgin river christmas by robin car. I think this one came out in two thousand twelve. So it's been out for a while and this is a full length novel and takes place in well in and around virgin river california and there's clearly been other books in this series Again you get There's a heavy marine presence in this book. Meaning the actual armed forces armed force. That's not right branch of the armed forces there we go In that the male main character was a marine. the main characters husband was a marine. He was her husband's best friend. The other main character in the town of rejang river itself. There's many Men who have been marines so there's a definite Military theme in the book. Patriot patriot patriotic. Excuse me theme running throughout those so if that is something that you like to read in your romance than you may wanna check out A virgin river. Christmas or any of the other virgin books set in river by robin car. I did enjoy that as well. Not maybe as silly in light heart. There's still some definite silliness and lightheartedness in in the book but it's also got some pretty heavy themes in it as well in terms of and ptsd and survivor's guilt and many many other things. Okay i have rambled on enough. I said i was going to try to get to new year's not going to happen. But i do want to highlight one hannukah book that i have not had a chance to read but it is written by an author who has been on the podcast and that is jennifer wilkie. I can't remember if i asked her this question. When she was a guest on the podcast. Or if we had this conversation At another point not when we were recording. But i was. It was last year around this time. A little earlier. And i was in the midst of my holiday reading and i said you know i would love to read books that are set around the time of hannukah and involve that tradition and so then she not. She didn't write this for me. Obviously but then it turns out that she has a novella just came out this month. It's called waiting for a miracle and it even has a minority on the cover. So you know that it has something to do with hannukah Here is the description of that. Benjamin cohen widowed father of six-year-old. Jesse is doing his best to hold it together. Through order and routine. The last thing he needs is his matchmaker mother to set him up with her next door neighbor. No matter how attractive she is. Rachel sectors dream of becoming a foster mother is right within her grasp until her meddlesome neighbour tries to set her up with her handsome son. What's worse he's the father of her favourite kindergarten students student. She can't afford to let anything come between her and her dream no matter how gorgeous he may be can these to determine people trust in the miracle of hanukkah to let love and light into their lives. So there you go. That is the description of waiting for a miracle. it is by author. Jennifer will who have had on the podcast. And i said wilkie earlier i am so sorry about that too much sugar clearly too much. Sugar jennifer wilk. There's no e. on the end w. i l. k. I know this now. You have the correct spelling jennifer. I apologize for mispronouncing your name but thank you so much for writing a hanukkah novella. I am very excited to read it and can't wait to. Maybe it'll come out on audiobook. I can add it to my list to listen to next year. Even though i plan on reading it before then and when i get a chance to read it then i will you know what i think so very excited to add hanukkah to the list of to my holiday list of reading. What are your favorite holiday books. Are they christmas or thanksgiving. Are they conaco. Are they kwanza. Are they new years. And if so what are those books. Because of there are a plethora of christmas stories. Out there christmas romances. But what about the other holidays around this time of year. And what about the ones that.

Coronavirus Is China Lying Or Not

"Non Starting there then. I'm starting there says now it started. Yes so now. I'm going to clap so now clap okay. Hello and good day This is disciple Mattias. Talking and I'm going to show you my new set or my new idea here about what I plan to do in the future and I plan basically to To do my own thing and not interact Really with other preachers Draw do my own thing and those who wanna listen can do so and those who don't want to listen Of course can choose not to so. That's the idea. I have made my senior videos for available through a public playlist on my show. Decide Matias channel so all these video did from nature in nature are now available that you can watch them if you want I've been thinking about a bit. The ball am I may be all. I want to tell you the the plan on the what I've set up for the future. The plan is basically that I'm going to do my own thing and space kept going to do talks and Not as I said interact so much than without the preachers and not try to make friends with other preachers Because it's You are what you are and and you do what you're supposed to do with what you are as a believer in the Lord. Jesus Christ because that's I WANNA say this. I'm of the opinion of all believers in the Lord. Jesus Christ have the Holy Ghost and that all believe resolve the low Jesus Christ our sons and daughters of God. So that's my opinion. They are all part of the body of Christ. Now that doesn't mean that everyone who professes to be a believer is born again that is east had solely ghost because you can claim to be a believer and really just being to charge or be into whatever so so But the every believer in Jesus Christ has the Holy Ghost is born again and that's the way it is in my opinion So I'm GonNa go talk a bit about the corona virus. What I think about that. And so on but Give me a minute I okay so I'm back so I'm GonNa put on the microphone. Okay put it bit lower okay. So I'm back so so what I want to say about the corona virus today. That is that I believe that there are two possible scenarios that we can see happen now with this virus and van one scenario which I believe some people believe is basically the scenario yet. You could claim. Shine is lying. That's a scenario. And the other scenario is China's not lying so let me talk about China's lying scenario. It's a scenario that Shaina didn't really stop the virus. It just flattened out when it through. You know just to wave and the wave is finished. It's over so head and we see that in Italy. We see signs of that the viruses slowing down in Italy so it could be so that Italy actually is has reached as posits peak and if Italy has passed its peak. Then we dealing with kind of like twenty thousand total deaths globally from this virus which Or MAYBE THIRTY THOUSAND WHATEVER. But still not gonNA deal. We're GONNA deal with like a flu or much less than the flu. Even though this virus is terrifying virus because of the symptoms and that nobody seems to be able to isolate themselves even Prince Albert got the virus. So what we're saying here. That does it out of fear involved here. It's Fear that has 'cause entire global economy to Go into recession lockdown or martial law and we haven't the military out now and this is perfect it's like a world war the Third World War caused by virus that tests at the moment. Just killed like I think it is ten. Thousand people are so. Tyson killed a lot of people compared to the Spanish flu which killed fifty to a hundred million people. You know so. It's not really don a lot of damage. But he does manage to totally destroy the economy or totally. Stop the economy Even though it can be started again so scenario two is that this virus is not as hasn't been stopped in China and Italy. It is going to go into second wave among people who have never been infected and then they under salt they say about three percent die from this virus so if we have Seven or eight billion people on the Earth today and you take. One percent is one hundreds of the eight billion. That's one hundred eight thousand million so it's It's ten no one hundred thousand millions. Yeah so it's ten million thirty million so that would mean that like thirty million people will die from this virus thirty million people which is close similar to the Spanish flu. So then my maybe. This will go on for for a year or so or more now. They might have vaccine in a year's time so but so we don't really know and I don't think they know why they're really what's going to happen. If there's GONNA come a second wave in China's well China had if you compare it to one point two billion people and they have so few deaths and want scenario. I can see since it's basically that this becomes like a second flue and just just a bit more terrible few flu but when I I've been in Asia and when I think back on Asia I realized that a lot of people could just die there without anyone really Making a big thing about they died at home often and there isn't much of a private hospitals there. Aren't you know you don't have this? National Health Care overnight. I think to some degree you have. I guess but what I saw from from Vietnam for example was let me see working. Yeah what I saw from Vietnam. Was that the war in Cambodia. Was that really. They didn't have access to the kind of hospitals. Said we have. So what's GonNa what's going to be the thing about this fluids You know what school is it leveler so I don't know what's holding in Swedish score respirator and a machine that helps you breath and I think that quite soon in a few months time they going to have a lot more of these machines in intensive care because of this virus. It's going to remain. They're gonNA stay there. They just going to have a lot of these machines and they probably gonNA create some way to create very to be able to have very many people on breathing machines so this would probably change in that sense of it Intensive care units this virus but And when that is done I don't think really they can do much. Except of course they can vaccinate them so on these. Loria medication might also work. You know so I think the real I think vice might continue but But it's not gonna be this Terror about it. There's GonNa be terror on a personal level when your friend or your relative or you yourself are and up in intensive care and can't pre that's obviously terror but I don't think that it's going to be terror in the sense that it is now. It's the uncertainty terror of told the lockdown and World War against this virus and that's People don't know about the future and people. Are you know people are at home because their employer has fired that more just Close Stop the factory for temporarily. They just a lot of people with economic troubles. Not just you know. A lot of even companies that You know need to a lot of economic stuff is gonNA come out of this this events and it might be similar to the actions of the World War. Two that we're going to see some Marshall Plan so on some World War like plan to fix the economy and who knows what's going to this is going to generate. I think could generate a lot of anger or so towards certain groups like towards people on a sick pension or maybe towards immigrants. You know towards You can increase the the anger. Maybe most likely will be against those who don't work and still receive money taxpayer money and so on. I don't know but we could see. We know that during the time of Hitler they did gas. A lot of Handicapped people they just sent them the white buses that it came and picked them up and then they gassed to death and Germany had been Recession before Hitler you know when that was caused by the recite treaty after the First World War Germany had to. I think pay for one hundred years or something eventually. They got mad angry and started to believe in their own race. And that was the Nazism How how you actually came. I think from the nineteen thirty recession. Where you know. Women were prostituting themselves to get bread to their sons and daughters they. There were a lot of misery because there was no money. There was money but it wasn't worth anything. The market floated zone. So what I believe is that this could be. Oh courses start or two more It could be the start of the end times this this could be the start of you know tougher period all and time like scenario what we see is the entire civilization is in danger from this little virus. That's only killed like ten thousand people and there's no proof that he's GonNa kill more than the flu. You probably won't. I heard the flu. Kills six hundred thousand people per year and I don't think it will kill that many but the what it actually might kill more. And that's what I talk about China's not lying scenario and the SHAINA not lying scenario. Basically says that the Chinese people actually managed to eradicate the virus from their nation. And that's why the virus has slowed down in China and it won't be slowing down in the Western World. Because they believe in mitigation they believe in not removing the virus. They believe rather in protecting the hospitals and so on and that strategy has not been tested in China. So we don't know really F- it's a possible scenario. The the Asian counties halves are showing Flattening of the of the corona virus and and that but that could be explained by different strategy that could be explained by using face mosques by using By using aggressive. Contact tracing and containment by stopping the virus from being in that country. You know why the Western world has has deep completely different strategy. They have not even close their borders. Nothing is just inviting the virus not even bothering testing people who coming to their country with symptoms from an area like northern Italy. So we see here that that the days a big black. We don't know about how it's really going to end for the Western world for USA EUROPE. And of course for entirely it's this is not just These areas Africa. And we don't know really how this let's see. What do I have now? Do I have a good volume? Yeah it's all about. Yeah it's a perfect one okay. I shake the volume there so so that I wanted to say but we know that everything works out good to them that love God and are called according to his purpose. You know and that's why we remember when you were born again that you stay with Jesus Christ and do what's right then. Don't go into the short system to be a harlot you know in the spiritual harlot tree that they have. I don't know that's my personal experience. I don't know what you your experience these. Maybe God has a purpose for you. In the short system they that could be a purpose. Whatever purpose you have make sure that you follow that instead of follow men here north who claim to have some discernment regarding you. And that's that's the real the trap as a Christian these people who come to you and claim they know what's best for you or what you should do and so on and some of these people are very very difficult to get rid of. I couldn't get rid of them as long as I spent time in churches once you leave the charges altogether. I was able to get rid of these people from my life on Youtube. It's not a problem because you know we're we're we're on different channels and you can block people so on so it's not really an issue on youtube but if you spend time in a public area like church it. I've noticed that I wasn't able to and you can have four accusers. Bibles turn away from them. But how'd you? How'd you do that? If you are part of a public building you just have to leave the church. It's that simple. That's the only way I will say to sort it out personally. Get right with God. So that's why I want to say also that do leave the churches That's how I think you know so this idea that I'm going to do a bit of talks and Yeah that's the idea. I'm going to do veto talks with. I have here camera that I used law summer. If you shake my my Playlist you can. You can find it there on. This is Mattias Channel on Youtube playlist. I did a lot of nice scenery videos and beautiful lake and so on and I used this Why I action camera from China together with a trifold sheep tripod and then I have an h one. N Zoom together with Getting squeezed Omni Directional level year microphone. So that's what I have used For this Setup and it can. It's a mobile setup. It can be used outside but currently I'm actually connected to the electoral to the electric current with this. It's not battery but anyway what what I want to say with this setup. I should say that technical with this setup to seeing what you're in video in post production that's the you know that's it so what I want to say about this Corrina Vice. It's obviously a scare and it's very possible. That's some of your relatives. Maybe your grandmother whatever you will loose due to this virus so and might even you know there are young people dying to his Not So nice to die. You know this way. They get trouble breathing. Which is quite a nasty way to to die especially some people have been very healthy. They've been perfectly healthy. The thing with this virus. You know that it's so contagious that you can't really protect yourself against it even if you have let's say you have Three billion US dollars and you own an island in the Pacific Ocean. I don't think you can protect yourself from this virus and that's the scary part and that's I think why this virus has created this reaction. My belief is that the very rich are very scared. The various of this world are often quite old and they various guy. They realized they not safe. From this virus I mean you can move into some bunker. Below ground may be but you know that that's what choice maybe a and clean the. Maybe even I'm not sure you can even be certain then because of the way this spreads droplets you know so I guess in a bunker well-built bonker below ground. You probably could be safe but where you have to get food some so. Are you going to get that food from From your Are you going to create that food in some greenhouse? You have in the bunker or are you going to to buy from outside and then are you gonNA treat it too. You know. There's a Lotta situations you get into? But of course you know they're extreme situations that may be but the point is here that are you going to separate yourself from everyone? You know who is in the world. Because that's your family and your children might infect you eventually and that's really so this virus actually as I've understood it. The extremely rich people are not safe from this virus. And I think that it's a party why they're made this attempt to control it so I think so. I think that a lot of people can die from this virus without even knowing that they died from it in the Western world. They were probably test to see. But the Asia and Africa. They would find a dead body and buried so so. What I'm saying is that this virus will go on. I think and yeah. We don't know really. What's this is how this is going to end? There's a lot of uncertainty. I saw an article written in two thousand nine where they talked about. These bats had a lot of viruses in them and having live. Animal markets with his bats is like time bomb for spreading the wires to human beings and that was set in two thousand nine and now we see what's happening and it's three viruses. I think that I haven't originated from these bats or in China and according to some more and then to human we have the SARS some we have the is it. I don't remember the name but basically the interesting part is that nobody is safe at this point. And here's Sweden Stockholm that. That has the worst case. And they they try to limit In and outflow from Stockholm in Finland they are Limiting the region of House. Inky you know The capital of Finland. They trying to actually quarantined it. The greater area around the capital of Finland. So so they actually. And that's not so nice to be quarantined like that with with the disease. You know you're you're close in. You can't leave because of that. There's so much diseases like on a cruise ship. You don't WanNa be there if you're healthy you're more likely to get it. You know if you're isolated with the sake so if you're contained with them so and you know I've said hard report that this virus also can affect other organs not just the lungs and they talk about the testicle some men but also talk about the brain that it can have an effect on the brain you know and whatever it's Not The first virus that can have that but if we look at HIV. I think. Isn't it about thirty million people died are HIV? It looks very small. Now I saw one person make Make a statement about that that this virus corona virus is like. It's not nearly as deadly as the flu. He said and that's true at this point but if the estimates are correct that three percents die of this virus then it will be more dangerous than the flu. Because that's thirty million people or so in this world you know. So so this all about China are they lying or not an and Sweden they calling. They saying China's lying or the insinuating that China is lying and darkening their cases. Now because the the number the curve flatten algae China. There are almost no new cases corona virus in China and there are two explanations either. It's true they stopped the virus at the border and eliminated it inside or they just lying and you know if they were lying. I don't think really necessarily that. We would know because you know people die at home and people die anyway all the time so you would know and they can die from lung disease. You know but the point still remains that I believe China. I've seen the reports About how the leader of China's he's telling. The people are doctors and the people to report every case and not darken anything and so on. So I don't believe China's line and that come that's novel Sweden believes you know. And this is all point. Sweden believing in mitigation what the UK Netherlands in these countries. We see Germany Italy Spain now going deeper into this strategy mitigation but the point is they hope that they're gonNA come an end they say. Italy has reached its peak. Now saying basically that you know it's going to go down in Italy but that's not true. If three percent of the people die and you know if you recharge community you probably reach it at around sixty percent infected or something. So Italy has sixty million people in the country and sixty percent or three percent executive. He's thirty million people. Three percent of thirty million is One percents over thirty million. It's one hundred so thirty million that's that's NEAT thirty thousand A thousand so it's Three hundred thousand so it's nine understands and so they should have around a million deaths in Italy and they don't they have around ten thousand deaths so too is wrong with a factor of one hundred or so so. What I'm saying is that Italy might have a new wave coming and we will you know they don't know really how this is going to end and this whole thing about this situation. They don't know it could be like the Spanish flu and the Spanish flu. What I've heard the Spanish flu caused. You know the cops were not there. There were no crops around because they will got the Spanish flu. You know and people don't didn't get food so civilization as we know it was just not around there there will just be. You know that's how bad it can get. You know it's like a war so you know then but but yeah. What I'm saying is that we don't know you know it's not like how many doctors was it. Was it twenty eight or something twenty. I Dunno doctors died in Italy. Twenty five I don't remember whatever so they are not safe. One guy he going and he said were false negative. He was treating a patient who had lung disease and the patient probably had corona then but they was a false negative. It tested negative to corona but it turns out so they can False negatives as well ever seen one study which say that fifty percents of the infected people show no symptoms at all and this I think is the real source of the spread of the virus. Because I mean I've seen they go around with this fever testing machine where they point like a pistol against the frontal lobe against the head of the person. The call I don't remember was called. But you know what I mean you you pointed towards the head of the person the Bob the is there because there you can actually measure the The the temperature On the person you don't have put it in the air nowadays so they do that to shake and I think they had checkpoints and so and check people at fever but I mean fifty percent are. Acm dramatic. I mean just won't work and this I think is the thing with this virus. They putting in a lot of measures against the wires and they costing the global economy. Go Down I've seen reports from Cambodia. That Cambodia suffering you know it's not just not just a Western Wall happens all over the place. They suffering economically now from this virus. And it's a Lope down and these attempts to stop the vice I don't think they're affective but if it's true and this what I'm saying this scenario shine a lying or not. If it's true that China's stop this fires and then they did have an effective method to stop it and that seems to have been. I read a bit about what they did. And they had an enormous amount of resources very quickly in their faith. Five thousand teams or something with five people in each team doing aggressive contact. Tracing and containment wall pulse positively tested and they built a hospital in a few in two days or something or a week. I don't know bill to do so. They had and they had an enormous and probably because they have had source before. So they you know are trained but point being is that I think they eliminate. They're not lying. They eliminate the virus from the county. You know why Sweden Western world are not even trying to eliminate it they letting it spread and there's no you can say well what's wrong with that. What's wrong with that strategy? The only thing is this virus. A new is we don't really know much about it. And therefore the strategy that they're using you know we social distancing mitigation You know protecting the hospitals making sure you have equipment in hospitals trying to to To isolate the elderly and all they started his. That's not what I did and we have no proof that it works against this virus. You know so these epidemologist here where. I live There might be trained in viruses. Envir- I think it's cool or via real or something but I don't. They not trained in this specific corona virus and instead of training the instead of trusting the Chinese they trusted their own intellectual expertise so to speak which was stupid because they should have trusted the Chinese. 'cause they had of experience they have a previous corona virus. And you know they so what we see now. We don't know really I just GonNa end is why is going to end by the summer is going to be have slow down or is it not gonna slow we going to see a change of some? I think we're going to see the more respirators and things like that but I think also life is going to go back to normal in terms of working in May already because they just can't have counters lockdown like. This is just too expensive for the economy. So I think we're going to see Return to normal and then they just going to say that We just have to live with this virus. It is unfortunate but true. We can't do anything now. We have to work at something like that. And but how is going to be? What is this virus going to rage like a storm all over the world even more? Because we've seen this doubling in two days so three days a doubling of number of deaths I had four SOMPO number of debt. New Deaths in Sweden was six thirteen. Twenty two so sakes Deaths per day and then the day off after it had increased to thirteen deaths per day and the day after that it had increased to twenty two deaths per day so you see almost a doubling per day in number of deaths in Sweden and if that continues you know in Italy. Eight hundred deaths per day. But the EC tally slowing down. They sign of that. It's gone down to six hundred deaths per day but we don't know or might come a new wave somewhere else in Italy southern Italy or whatever you know so we don't know them also have the situation with I think it's six hundred million people in Asia who lives in slums that even get does live in places where they if they WANNA wash their clothes. They need to do it in a collective fashion. Whatever one Alsace and so on in these spaces you can't isolate people and They they can't they need to get food and so on living. You know eight people in House or whatever or in a hawk or whatever so and they living very close and in these places corner vices likely to hit these places to and what we don't know at this point what's going to happen to this virus because it does mutate but it doesn't mutate a lot. It mutates a little so we don't know really what because when we have resources or when we have a place for this virus inhumanity continuously it could result in Like the flu that you get a new version every year or it could just result in a lot of strains that that just you know it could be A. We don't know this point. They don't know with virus you know. We don't but they liked it to have better ways of tweeting. This virus a year from now they likely to have these breathing machines and then. Maybe maybe malaria medication and this malaria medication that they recommended. It can cause blindness and depression to the extent that people flip out flip you know Tappan and it's fatal into high dose so it's nothing to play around with but it might you know. This disease is fatal to to a lot of people so it could be a way to try to save these people who are on their way to death. You know average time I think is twenty five days for them to before they die from when they get it and it's not nice to lie there in the respirator not hope it's better to take the medication you know because the this malaria medication is cheap. It's been around for over fifty years. I think it's from nineteen forties or so it's very cheap to to create it and they have cases where it's worked. They just got well. These people intensive care so they I think it's being deuce in Cambodia and a lot of places I think it should be used more in the Western world but You know the Western World always tries to be. I think they always tried to be wise in their own conceit. I listen to a Cambodian. Newspaper called the Western world. There's they say that the arrogant and they have a ego you know and this. It's what is about this wise in their own conceit the Western world. And that's how the acted in this coronal buys crisis and people are wising their own. Conceit are worse according to the Bible. Them Foods. You know and It's true it says that you know seven people that can render recent can try to talk to someone who is in their own conceit and they can't get him right and that's just the Western world is they. They convinced they're doing the right thing. Why they're killing people. They didn't listen to China. They have their experts. You know it's all about experts in Sweden is. It's a religion that they have you know it's a religion of science and they sit there. It's it's they actually talk about psychological warfare also using now and now they talk about that. Russia and China has psychological or has agents in the country. You know and that it could actually you know affecting Thai county negatively. But they don't understand that they wrong. I think Sweden is wrong. Sometimes you just have to understand you're wrong. And that's a whole Boeing with people who are wising their own conceit. They do not understand that they wrong. And as I said it's worse than a fool. Sweden would be better off if they were run by fools. That's what I'm saying. So and it's very possible that there are two scenarios that I would recommend for this corona virus scenario Var one. The Best Strategy do what China did. Scenario two is do nothing. I think that it would be better to do nothing if you're planning to do what. China did so because you're just causing more trump more problems with with what you're doing. Sweden and the same applies to other countries. Netherlands say UK. I think your million and Spain and Italy and all this country. Usa ON USA USA. He's GonNa Return. I think to do nothing eventually. We with trump because they need to restart the economy. Whatever that's my guess. I'm not sure but but I still believe that these are the two strategies either do us. China did or do nothing. There is no more thought strategy. And that's what the white seeing their conceited Sweden and now they think that there are agents around trying to overthrow their nation. Why can't they just get into their head that they wrong? You know Neko. Because they're why seeing their own conceit you know so that's what I want to say and now on a blessed Jesus Christ the spirit of truth. I want to thank impre slow. Jesus Christ the spirit of truth and prophecy and God for everything and You know I think that you know everything will work out good to to to those who believe in Jesus Christ and I don't think that we would science and with the too much focus on detail about this disease can get anywhere positive. It's by by faith in Jesus Christ and I do recommend recommend reading the ABC's in Lebanon Four Hundred University of the king's Bible with Campbell. That I usually this. I do recommend reading the New Testament so that every day for an hour because you need to to to to wash yourself in the word of God and and to To get good guidance because it's Jesus Christ our savior not the doctors. They're not going to save you. You know you see what they do. They're dying that's what they do. They try to help these people and they're dying themselves because they don't have any answers see if they not believe within law disguised as no no future. I mean they do study. They do know about the anatomy of people and the stuff like that. But they don't have the real knowledge you know. Jesus Christ that keeps US alive today and if they doctors should they be interested in that so but then there's the way this their life you know and it can be good that exist you know we. We might need a doctor some time and they can do things because they studied it and they know and I'm I'm thankful myself or something that that have been done to me by experts in my life so I'm not against experts but I'm against the putting them a Bob the Lord. Jesus Christ. That's what I'm against. And that's what they're doing in Sweden. Few Sweden Sciences the religion of Sweden. So it's So terrible realizes and then you have these churches by shouldn't talk too much about George's okay. So I've been told him for four six minutes now. I think so. This is the idea that I do my own thing. Here as a believer in Jesus Christ the rather than try to you know have some fellowship or interact or comment on other people's work too much or other people you to have or in churches because I've noticed it it does doesn't work out so I'm trying to do my own little thing here. You know people just listen to it. And if you're not interested you can unsubscribe and yeah so that was Eight you know. I I think these videos probably will be added eventually to some playlist. And they might don't Publico but they will be. There will be some playlist that they're on. You know yeah the Lord. Jesus Christ is the answer to our questions he would. We believe in and what we trust. And you know. That's the way you had even in this You Know Jesus. Christ this controlling this viruses controlled by him. There is Satan Kennel. Do anything without the permission of Jesus Christ so So yeah permission. Oh God the father you know God the father and the low. Jesus Christ the say tonto anything without their permission so it's Because of that we we know that it's all in God's hands you know On a praise God the father. I WANNA pray slow. Jesus Christ in the Holy Ghost. Yeah so this is how I plan to continue to to not focus on on other people doing stuff so but to have my only to Plato. Do my own thing. I think I'm GONNA end now. So bless you and Bye for now.

Aaron Mahnke's Cabinet of Curiosities

10:40 min | 2 years ago

025 | Mourning

"Our world is full of the unexplainable, and if history is an open book, all of these amazing tales right there on display just waiting for us to explore. Welcome. The cabinet of curiosities. Few rulers stick out from the pages of history, like Queen Victoria. She was almost larger than life so much so that the time period she lived in took on her own name, the Victorian era and what time it was during her sixty two year reign. The world changed dramatically. The British empire expanded around the globe and the modern constitutional monarchy. As we know it today took shape and matured the world saw the first powered flights, the invention of the telephone and went from paintings and horsedrawn carriages to photography and automobiles. Queen Victoria impacted Europe in a very particular way to she and Prince. Albert had nine children and between them were forty, two grandchildren, and that family tree spread wide today. Five European countries have monarchs that are descended from Victoria, including Queen Elizabeth. The second clearly, she left her Mark on the world. Victoria and Albert's were a beloved couple, and it was hard to blame the public for that Prince. Albert was a man that leaned toward the progressive side of the political scale. He helped influence reforms in the areas of welfare, slavery and education along with the ever expanding world of manufacturing. And of course, what Royal family would be complete without multiple palatial homes to live in. There was Kensington of course, and everyone knows Buckingham Palace, but an eighteen fifty one. The Queen added one more house to that list down on the northern tip of the isle of white, the called it, the Osborne house, and it served as a summer home. But some are turned to winter eighteen sixty two at the age of just forty two Prince Albert died, leaving Victoria all alone. What happened over the next four decades has sometimes been described as the birth of a culture of death. She wore the black of mourning for the rest of her life and made sure that the servants never stop taking care of Albert's daily needs. Even though he was no longer alive or even in the house. Win her children, eventually married each of them posed for wedding photographs that included a bust of Albert's. She never slept in a bed that didn't have a photo of him beside it and kept the plaster cast of his hand so that she could hold it. In fact, when she passed away in nineteen. Oh one that hand was placed inside her coffin. It's fair to say that Albert's death altered her completely and not in a healthy way. The most interesting of session of her later years though, was not discovered until after her death when Osborne house fell into the hands of her son and heir King Edward, the seventh, he explored the areas of the house that had been off limits to anyone other than his mother and they're behind locked doors. You found an unusual display. Hundreds of photographs that cover generations of people. Victoria had known portrait's of people who had been important to her right there in the house where she can visit whenever she wanted despite the fact that these photographs spent decades and each one show the face of different friend or family member. There was one common feature tying them altogether. None of the subjects where alive Queen Victoria's Secret gallery was a morbid tour of the most haunting and final moments of each person's life. Their funeral. This episode was made possible by audible, what I'm not busy writing. I'm reading and I do all of my reading through the power of audio road tripping running yard work.

Transatlantic ocean liners have been around since the early nineteenth century back in those days, they were powered by steam. It was the steamship s s savannah that made the first powered Atlantic crossing in eighteen nineteen reaching Liverpool in just twenty seven days trouble was they only use the steam engine Ford about seventy two hours managing the majority of crossing with their sales in eighteen thirty three, the Royal Edward us deem power for seventy five percent of their crossing. But it wasn't until four years later when the SS serious tried to top the record, they made the crossing in just eighteen days which was amazing. But the used up all of their coal in the process. In fact, they ran out before they reached New York and had to break up wood and furniture to burn to keep the engine running. All of these were relatively small ships. They carry passengers just not. A lot of them. But as the decades ticked by everything, advanced, the engines, the passenger capacity, even the communication technology by the eighteen seventies companies like the white star line were building, massive ocean liners. That's about the time when crossing the ocean became a luxury trip to those first white star liners were decked out with first class cabins running water, electricity, you name it. And yet while there was a lot of promise and hope for these growing palaces of the waves, there was also a lot of risk. Oceans were unpredictable and temperamental after all a lot could go wrong. Somewhere along the way they built the big one. I'm going to give you some numbers so you can put it into perspective. This ship was eight hundred feet long and had a displacement of forty, five thousand tonnes. Those who bragged about her said that she was unsuitable and I get the hint behind a claim like that. It's meant to give future passengers ease of mind, but it certainly smacks of hubris doesn't it? I mean, no ship is truly unsinkable. Maybe because of oversight or perhaps because of that grand claim of unsinkable nece builders didn't outfit the ship with enough light boats, and that's the sort of thing you do if you want to tempt fate, isn't it? So it's going to come as no surprise when I inform you that this unsinkable ship didn't survive her maiden voyage on a cold April night about four hundred miles off the coast of Newfoundland. The ship was cruising through the dark. It lands it waters at about twenty five knots when it struck an iceberg, the massive block of ice tore a hole in the side of the ship, and then the unthinkable happened to the unsinkable. It sank. The loss of life was devastating, perhaps made even more painful in light of that prideful claim about the ship safety. That wasn't the most surprising thing about this nautical tragedy. No, that mantle falls to one other piece of information that will pardon the pun sink, your expectations. You see, this event never happened in real life. That is because this ocean liner was nothing more than the setting for novella written by an American author named Morgan Robertson, which probably fooled. You didn't it because you assuming I was talking about the Titanic this entire time, you know the unsinkable ocean liner that struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sunk to the bottom of the ocean in April of nineteen twelve. Nope, knife old you with a bit of fiction, but there's more and it's less funny than it is bizarre because you need to know to other things about Robertson's. Fictional ocean liner. I it was named the titan crazy right second though. And most amazingly of all his story was published in eighteen ninety eight fourteen years before the tragedy of the real ship called the Titanic. I know it's cliche, but every now and then even the worst cliche proves itself. True. Sometimes life really does imitate art.

When you catch yourself doing something physically, and you say, well, that's interesting Druce coots, what do you up to their? I have my what is that? My Sosa my right hand in hand, my right index finger is arrest of a hand is kinda cool out was to but my right ex- index fingers out in kind of hook pointing position. To the left part of my forehead, the right part of your right, right, brain, right left, brain, it is under right side of my forehead in. It's just perched.

My hormones going wasn't dad saying, oh, boy and prepubescent gets mackney, and it wasn't a little scratchy poo. It just I just found my finger. They're not actually do. You know, what a full-body missed is someone that can read the fold, you know, anyway, I don't wanna get supposed to be setting this up and also my arms getting tired. But yeah, my fingers just up there Catolica saying I'm thinking, but what made me say, I'm thinking his body. What are you doing? So maybe like maybe somewhere another university. I'm thinking about something here just on talking without thinking if you're new welcome. I'm glad you're here. Really hope I can help you fall asleep. Now, despite guest is not work for everyone. But here's a proposal in your free to accept it or go, go about your business. Give tries to see if it helps to see if it to sleep. See if it relaxes you make. You more comfortable? See how goes bad guest is free to consume particularly for new listeners. You could come in. And browse you say we'll like we mean, I can come in this restaurant tastes the food. And see what I think is he. Oh, yeah. All of its imaginary here, you know, do have a business and working on a sip and bras. So we can pretend say you come in. And you sit him. It sip and broths the first to sip is furry. That's not gonna be our catchphrase. But that would be one of our tenants. You say, well, how do you run? Well, the first sip is free. It's very small sip though in it's regulated sip. And believe me, I'm behind the counter and say, whoa, whoa. You've had sorry comes in those catch up the pay the paper things you can put just a dollop a ketchup in it. So we serve our first sip is free. Okay. Sorry, who knew listeners newest I may have lost a few there, maybe fell asleep. Maybe made me this isn't for me. But if you're in the neutral zone, which is a pretty wide range of the spectrum. You might say no, I don't understand what I say. Yeah. Kickback see if this bad cast can help don't try to overstate it. Because. I'm not running. I don't know how many cylinders the average brain has. And some part of grinches said there is no cylinders than another part said were not Celinda Rickel in great. You're paying attention in the part of C L vocabulary cynical somebody another part of my brain just yelled cynical. Why why would you do that? We're having fun with cylinder and Celinda ical. And now wanted to sing a song about. It's like I'd sing. It's not unusual to be Celinda coal. If maybe a car could sink cars already say saying that really like a AA MC. Oh, maybe it saying that song. No, okay. Well, I gotta get back to new listener. So nice to meet you who are you? Really? I'm talking to a part of my brain refuses to answer that question. Okay. Anyway, if your new listener don't try to make too much sensings because it's a bit of nonsense around here in the whole idea of the nonsense type stuff in the Cape going off to I mean, I'm good at going off topic naturally and good at nonsense actually naturally, but believe it takes bring some levity to bedtime in soon. You'll realize okay, I can try to follow scoots. They can follow him. He goes it pointless. Meanders send my voice cross dip Dir. Ignite willing, soothing creek adults tones go off topic all that stuff. So. Just give it a try see if it works, structurally, what to expect to show starts off with a few minutes of business. So we keep it for a as a people sport showing sponsors. Then there's an intro about seven minutes into the intro intros round twelve minutes as they are not like anything other than show fun show within a show. Why say fun part of my brain just put quotes around it already. But it's a part of the show where you can get familiar or obese familiarity, some levity. Is there will be some so integral thanking? For sure. It was a strange. I don't always observe everything. That's going some art of part of my brain just yelled at stupendous with just as a word not saying what I said was stupendous. Like, you know, what is this called free association? Right. When I said Celinda coil. Another mar part of my brain said stupendous on then. Okay. We don't need you chiming in with other S T U words, unless it's sturgeon they take over for here. I at least church consciousness today. So oh, so the intro is kind of like a show finish. Oh, sometimes new people or people say, oh, it's like a bit of. It's just a show they show some people. Listen to it to fall asleep is some people listen to it, more and more people. I'm hearing from listened to during the day to say, whoa. That was like a head some intensity to it. Let me listen a little scoots row again make that phone call later. Let me listen to some scoots c- could do that few people skip the intro to go right to the story here. The discussion of doctor who which will be tonight's SO. However, do it, you know, more a lot of people also semi pitches when they play any intro their cats or dogs or had like to see some turtles coming to take the scoots, your intros are just as the same length that takes metro to come get in bed with me. And they said, well, what wh- hold the phone here? You're you in bed with a turtle can make sense because you couldn't like they couldn't roll over on turtle because if it would be an shell does to deterred always sleep in their shelves. That'd be another thing in an not talking about in cartoons talking about in reality. And here's another thing what for turtle oversleep. And then they do they do the same thing as humans to when they stick their head out of the shell. They say. Oh, the sun would how would time is it. Holy mackerel. Now, I'm going to be really late because it takes forever to get get no fence trying to make jokes that your speak, Spence turtles. I'm just saying. If you're listening, and you're you have a turtle is a bed mate, a real turtle. Not a. Your turtle lake being. Well, if you've totally being it's bed mate, also. But as the turtle neck you say, oh, yeah. Randy, where's total neck dmed. Also, if if they do get in touch with me about that too in Debbie interesting, of course, when I started to sleep in and turtlenecks never went back. Is really tell tell me more. I'm deepen this intro. But I, you know, trying to tell the new listeners, but tell me more about wearing turtlenecks to bed. Will you which which type NAT turtle turtleneck? I of. In weiser. No, call those quarter turtlenecks or have turtlenecks to double where he folded over where you could go all, you know, if you wanted to you could, you know, unroll it up Jere knows ever you get a nice fold in air in just just it's just like a comforter for my neck. What can I say, see, you're brilliant? You may have changed pajamas for forever today and sleep with me. You can we get does anybody have the number for pajamas today that doesn't exist? What about pajamas weekly? They lay internet took them. What about pajamas monthly? Okay today were purchase. I Vanity Fair. Really? That's good. That's interesting. That's pajamas. Monthly would about be PJ's BJ league. Like duri? Oh, I get back to this area. You're we grade do you do you have one of the PJ BJ monthly what about PJ quarterly that? I would say that's a quarterback really PJ quarterly to me like two they should run for office. This this bad gas of sodas brought to you by PJ quarterly. So anyway, if you're new so. Shirk of the show is the intro goes out for awhile. Then there's we'll be talking some business. Then we talk about a doctor who episode in very meandering an indirect way, and then we have some banks in consis structure show, you're under no pressure to listen in no pressure to fall asleep here to keep you company issue drift off to take your mind off stuff to be your boyfriend to be your bore, bud. It to be a friend in the deep dark night. You know, why because I've been there tossing and turning a know how feels in a believe you deserve a good night's sleep. Or if you're heading having a rough day or you did is something say, hey, let's think about this. Let's think about whatever Raynham stuff just it just rattled off twelve minutes of randomness in. But seriously those last couple ideas, I think have some merit PJ quarterly. Somebody's about name. And maybe you could like if you're entering one. If you're if you're ending your turtle and a competition. If I mean, I think that'd be a good name for turtle especially one that you dress up as like like a like professor at Halloween. You say like to meet you meet me, my turtle PJ quarterly, you know, PJ for short or PGE also sleep with my. I mean, I sleep in the same bed as my turtle. So I just wanna get you know, I don't know if that's the deal breaker. Oh, it is. Okay. What was it? The fact that may turtle a first name in a last name impossibly too. I aim Skah's PJ could stand for something. Or the fact, you know, people in their beds. Oh, see see. Maybe the ski conversation go into how does the in bed? Maybe jumps that you'd have to. Okay. Give to the list. Sorry about that. Okay. Hey, some here to keep you company here pushing a good mood. Ideally or neutral mood you'd say. Yeah. Scoots him. I don't know what he was. He was messing around last night. I don't know something about a a something in some tortoise related. Maybe tortoiseshell gla- tortoise in tortoiseshell glasses. I can't believe it to the the end of the intro. That's not a good thing. You're right PJ. Maybe a PG quarterly. Meet my new menu subconscious PJ quarterly. It. My sub catch is very turtle like in has a. It can you deal with my lizard brain police. Thank you. Okay. So anyway, I'm here to help him here to keep you company. Appreciate you. Checking the show out give it a few tries, and what you know. I work very hard in a in strived help you fall asleep. Right. And here's a couple of ways we keep his show going. A body. I don't know if you check that are shop yet over it. I sleep at me podcast. I'm so store merchandise store. Get it some amazing shirts. They're burning the butterfly to- bag our own sleep spray sleep with me sleep spray for love -ly better. Bedtime, aromatherapy, sprayed on your pillow in sprayed it UNICEF rate under your arm.

Is this pair comes with the super meal logo on them? He could check all that out at Suba podcast adak com store. Thanks sewer talk in series, Stu to episode three to co-author in ran the Doh don't achieve something as one of the actor for sectors. We see who's mental. Look up would what is the say Spencer Hawkin get glassy wind or grassy wind mountains. Bells. Some mung Sii hiking. They have staves or stabs or stamps. They can look like they would be chanting over, but Ron Dona Chee, Donna CHAI. He's from you'll recognize him from game as owns someone box. And they say, hey, we want your house in. He says you can't have the Sassaman the caretaker whatever. And then we get Suber action movie amongst become like orange action stars and totally it was a little bit different than the rest of the episode except for one or two there in these orange in nj type things is doing super high jumps there's action music. I mean, I guess the probably come in. Later on as y. In there doing the action against the people that were caring for the manner. Like, what are they are? They taking out servants. What is going on ear like by or they do par core in the kitchen? He ended in they go down the the good to put everybody in the basement, and they put this canvas stark down there. I don't know if you've gone camping. And, you know, the head of canvas guitar not like a, you know, any kind of tarp. And then just squish it up into route in the trunk and threw it in the garage and corner, but as it what's happening here in they say, good luck with that disturb has been cou is release you down here to the star is choline. And they said we went camping about forty five years ago. And they say see, you everyone works what I think also because they say well won't be that hard to clean the Avs. It opens. Obviously with the twist to nose in. Then we see Tartus dump a damp something. It's late nineteen seventies. The dagger says bin bag. Overalls been bag versus lamilla get some of this. Rose has overalls and. Oh, he says bin bag. I think he's talking about around fit for the seventies. Then he searched Iraq in some Ian Dury in the by Dury in blankets and ruin nineteen Seventy-nine. Dr spunk in out rose. Can't believe it. He's she's like, oh, you're punk with Little Rock, Billy and guys. Like, we're taking a catch took charter go see the cancer. You know, this is why we use it. A battle of Trafalgar anti gravity Olympics Caesar Rubicon and injury tap Aranka. Sheffield England nineteen Seventy-nine remember twenty first in then they start to the move the mood music rock and the doctors banging bell or something Tartus bell. But to have a rough landing as a head tour Sheffield at actor. I love the seventies man mobile movies. Good Sancha Skylab mixed. Then they get off the charts, and they say, holy Redcoats, or whatever they say eighteen seventy nine in seventeen never mind, but. Is there an skid? They say what's up Scotland is sewn about them looking dazed and confused, Elliot. No there people in red coats. And they say why is this girl not clothed brab? Really? And I didn't really that's like a little bit of ongoing joke and they had scotch. Accent us other doctor figures it out. He goes, oh, I've been chasing her around because she's in these overall so in starch, tune of bad Scottish accent route in boots almost as bad as mine hoots Munn hoots Mon and he says don't do a Scottish accent? Then he shows his psychic favors credentials of some doctor from Edinburgh. But the approach he's broaches slowly with all due deference to the the coach carriage, and they opened the door. In its soclean going Victoria or majesty in she goes credentials since she goes, oh, you're my Lord provost. I guess oh, they say Queen Victoria, empress of India defender of the faith Andro sorry about the outfit. She goes. Yeah. I got five daughters and she s she looks psychic paper. She is. Yeah, we're trying to get to Aberdeen or something in doctorates. How come you're not on the train? Go like line was down. In goes next. And she goes, she was no probably something planned. She says, you don't have untold total. She goes until really tough good morning. Dr one bell Maurel. Each in seventy nine six six people tried to take me out as choline. What of laugh rose Wasser say we are not amused, which I think must be miss show at have time to lick it up. We see the big house. They're going to a big Tillis cope. Can't do it. The -mongst her their undercover pretending they work. There is also big corrosive front charming, if Rosie charming if rustic that's what issue Queen says is places charming if not rustic. And I think she makes a bet was a doctor is simply that she can get the Queen to say we were I'm not amused or were not amused in all sorts to torture would estate so holy back story robbery of the crown. They say like it up a shish we see telescope again. It actresses something. I like him, but it's a bit rubbish. I don't know what the maybe about it is guys stand to may. 'cause telescopes is too many prisons that actresses totally weird. Doesn't make any sense. What you have that many Prizms on a? Telescope Verdy infinite word of God winkles, doctor Polly mass or so maybe the day is a regional Torchwood, Johnny Torchwood. Also, he was in the fabulous five or something. Stars and magic he was into. Then they talk about how Prince Albert hung with his Torchwood, dude. Banking eighteen seventy five or something. I don't know in how Albert and him to talk focal or magic. They also loved puppies and camping tar Petar poems. I think they call them. Then. In. He by the way, you any close to row Styler missed Eyler, they call her because she's she's dress like she's going to a hoedown those haven't been invented. Maybe they have which is in the American west in dinners at seven still trying to get the green to say I'm not amused in. They see great news. If you're going to be outdoor camping, there's a full moon tonight. Only can't you know, only thing as most of our tarps are spoiled sunsets roses and armoire always see beautiful when the sunsets against these mountains in Scotland. Then we see rose armoire. She's looking at outfits is big music playing with the. We also see like the the monks every bottlers there's like never been in a house with this many bottlers actually have been anywhere with about ler. But, you know, even in my magic nation also butlers or making dinner because everybody else's trying to clean camping tarp. They say drinks for everybody. All the all the red coats to. Then rose meets a friend. In armour. Who says, you know, they got us cleaning these camp tarps that they can't clean them is some sort of strange thing. And then all the guards so fall asleep in the raptor roses. I don't know the doctoral know what to do. She knows who we're going to camp outside. We have to have tarps. You know, they say could you sleep with your ten on the ground with everyone knows true, unless you know, that millimeter really makes it more comfortable. Flora who I don't know. I have that me. Oh that was a Rosa's new friends. Name rose finds a sleeping guards. She says we're just gonna sleep inside. It's recapping outside. They give busted by Manco who was undercover Butler ACRI.

Somebody remind me actually at dinner by candlelight row Anat Rosen's air, she's choline into Arps now, but the doctor the head of the son of Torchwood a Jimmy Torchwood his name. Either having dinner by candidates are talking about this crystal no MU their drinking on a crystal. And I tell me about your dad tell me about these stories. You. So I miss my dad used to.

Lana table, taro glasses unindo tempting to glasses at each place, setting greens. A little bit said she misses sprints Albert's is wish you they? Tell stories serious dangling. Oh, serious dangling bike hearings. If I would've finished the sentences queens wearing them. She says tell us everyone downstairs. Always see the butlers dark is full moons or full Mohme's in. Oh, yeah. Is a puppy barking to. And they say once in a generation you're going to camp outside and unclean tarps Chirps that wouldn't be cleaned. Rose goes, and she says we've got to get outside and camp we can't cleanly stops in. They're never going to dry. And then she says, you know, what if you spend enough time in the city stops aren't from earth that simple. These are intergalactic charts in there. No good. See? There's also a bunch of puppies somebody recognized from oh as the doctor recognize him from Harry Potter. Then dinner and butlers like whispering to the moonlight the diet that catches the doctor's attention. Of course. He says we doing and then he said that actresses what's going on here. And he says, oh, they're species out there that went to a henchman tarps. That's what the parking about. And that's goes attackers. Nell something else, wink who will be whispers in. They say, I don't know the they don't look at poll net. Means you your ladyship. Oh, that's when rose is trying to pull. She says also starts incredibly heavy. Let's pull it out and shake it out in. She's trying to shake ATar bound to get a flat on the ground or air trying to clean it crumpled up. Who was that? Is in dinner, stole chaos, and they see what do you want to starting in the camping in the pug, and they say throw. Rose gets wanna turps read out in doctors. She runs into Dax or she says, let's get out of here and figure out what's in. She's where the heck even been is in. They see these puppies, which you clearly are like space, but he's that PIN things with space Bowers in the doctor's transfix puppies Arpaio. Say lack the doors. They say go to the bathroom, and he's expensive rugs or something the queens, very calm. She says, I'm prepared. And then somebody says some tour she goes direct form of address as your majesty. In the doctor rose and the crew like to Queen and the the due to Jimmy Torchwood. They're working on a plan. Puppy are everywhere. The doctors can still transfixed and there's a bunch of action scenes actions action up action. And we see the monks again, they're in their orange outfits in the doctor. So he tries to warn somebody about the ping puppies in the tarps. He says you can't camp on those sharps covered myspace, but BP. Puppy looks for something net. Then the Queen grabs her aback so she because she had this box. It would I thought was like the crown jewels that she liked up, and what is happening then the Queen highs and as about. Is in there surrounded by the monks who went to camp outside and turps equations in denial about the puppies is in doctor says those go jogging around the state, so they ju- jogging around these shades. Chanting music. There's a chest.

And what is the waiting here? Where what are we waiting for? Even the doctor does no. In an him in rose hug to break the tension. Jimmy Torchwood apologizes bald at actively Auld ASA Latics. Roses, still clowning around queens, NAT happy. This is not my world. She says is in the doctors put things together he says, there's some mistletoe he says mistletoe oil in the wood mistletoe.

"The. Tros live on, AMC, grandstader. James. Unite. With Your House band. Michelle three and the door Castro. Week we begrudgingly asked the question. Are we going back to Imola and click styles crop fill? This is box of neutrals. My name is Michael Auto and joining me as always. Yes. It's Mark Lowen Raub at the movies. This week, so puffer, the usual sort of antics of sports and I'll have a five minute address to the nation's Donald. TRUMP IVA bath, legrand tour, whatever was told not to be confused with the Amazon original series. All the you know. Monaco Film Festival original series. He was really something to behold I think we've reached peak. Look down, thank goodness. Racing is only a couple of weeks away I could be enough. Some teams are going testing. That's not McLaren. find out why that is hinted got everything to do with some anger in another country plus Kimyan. How old really bay when he stops for me to watch. Who knows that's probably the only. Give you all the companies that Desert Fox of nutrients when he was a young. Musab the CHAUMET PITA McGinley. Trail. One is bullshit. Because, just go round in circles. They don't go anywhere. Is being terrible time. If you're a movie buff, a movie enthusiasts, a lover of films, and it's only gotten worse in fact in the last week, I think would have to be the dio of. The Corona virus film industry period with what's a cold. Legrand rendezvous. And starring Shelter Clerks Star Shot. Rebecca the florist? He's he's superior Albert. Is it. Who's WHO's WHO's the Prince Charles? I think it's. I think it's predominant must be, but he had some kind of high in. Title in Star Wars he's. Serena, amongst Suray the. It's very relaxing title, isn't it? Hey by request. I, tell you. What if we still on her? Majesty's Bay say. This week it would would be. He's puniness. Mauka Lebanon. With disgraced Victorian and pay rob giant. To. Do like hassle rain. I mean how is the serenity? If you wanted to say, he wanted to go that far I've I've heard. He's Highness, or or Your Majesty and I've never heard of his reign. How could he be Sereni live in Montana nothing. What does he do for? He was stuck in traffic. What are you still be Serene Prince Albert wake up! The the the Monica Principality Monday or slack aboard. A footpath has a gap in a bit of attention. Yeah, so, what is he still wakes up Monday morning accosted after he's attended to the foot pause and he has to have his weekly Zoom meeting. We under leagues, these still serene during that 'cause I be serene in that context they eat ain't goes for an early lunch. And then in the afternoon, he'll. Sort of crack open. Bacher soft publish during cracking onto the to the cancel newsletter. which he then goes good use everybody, the streets will be closed. This Saturday morning six hours while we feel a six minute. Short fill uses Microsoft publisher anymore. So positive clearly people in Monaco. Barron and have time to upgrade their computers in Monaco. We know it's time to install updates long the my serene, because they keep the cells free of the latest technology can I can relax and enjoy the finer things in life all right because they. Have to upgrading all the moist shape prince. Albert though. Have, you ever have you ever. Have you ever met a I've never met a rich person that just. fritters money you ideally people. The fridge money away a drug dealers. And impey's of. God Site I. Know you. I don't know any drug dealers is the I don't tap my phone place. They've already tapped one of the phones of one of the members of the show today so. Look at froze. Froze I is not going to worry about that. Stein federal place to worry about whichever whichever one of the police apparatus we need to be concerned about I remember. The fulmer said member of books. Neutrals paid McGinley wristy Saul. He used to. Walk around with a shirt. When I made him the very we see sort of twenty something year old. T shirt that said it's not illegal. If you get caught I, think it stays. It's only illegal. If you get caught, it's definitely illegal. If you get the essence of it more logical legal. If you get caught, it's it's legal anyway. Yes, yes, look, and that's! That's obviously turn. Words to be taken to a great. It was a great shape in May. The Lord look is A. Tragic tragedy when he was crushed between two hades ended I. Tell you what I finally someone wants to go. Radio broadcast towns. He was meant to be looking after help the time good audience could have got spayed. Look. I want to talk briefly about this field, did anyone? Do on what you did. He want you. Look at first of all I watched it because I saw it on Ferrari's instagram stories. which which the first thing that caught my eye was a commercial for. A feature that was a little sort of sit down zoom style interview with jock clear. That was tom how you would knowing? That I think that we can we can. We can review that one next week, but. The series of winnowing at home, had more. Legrand rendezvous because. If it wasn't for the. SAURAV. Eaten Mania Studies opening titles it was. Of unnecessary music, and just the general lack of plots there now I I'm all indie films and and the creative industry and obviously. They Maine's work for for the those poor souls in Monaco. who had nothing better to do, but NASA propped up the very lucrative WANNA guest film industry, but What what what was the point I did like we all saw the sort of the The bond the Saints Shooting Shelton. Wow, that's going to be really cool. It's going to be like. A like a like other great sort of. Car Short films like The pikes peak. Short film with I had sort of the camera on the front of Persia. Pike's peak car and grand, Prix and other sort of you know really great. KOSH short faces but. I don't know what it was. Maybe it was the the easy use of go pros. Film maybe and the fact that there was a go pro visible in shots. you know look. I have to wear the. Face Masks, but it's just you're going to look back on this short. In Twenty Song going what the Hell was that what? Was the question. Surely this film suffers from the fact that is directly linked to the first rendezvous. Fill which everyone that we not, everyone is saying, but you've probably seen it without even realizing it the film, which the same French director my juice. They must have been paid a lot to make this one because it's nothing like the first one. straps a camera to the front of Mercedes then dubs it with Ferrari audio with. Soundtrack, but then just Rice's around the dawn streets of Paris breaking every Rhode literally every road rule. You can think of cookie driving on the footpath at one point. Two then have a final shot overlooking apparently, and then he meets his. He's wife or girlfriend. Depending on whatever you want to say, maybe Barth, who know the Rebecca, the floor is not Charlotte. Close go for. And the worst part was wasn't. He's Serena's Prince. MONACI Actively participating in this in this unsanctioned devilish rendezvous. That's for me. That was breaking breaking the fourth wall. was that original rendezvous was yes, this illegal unsanctioned dangerous act, and yet we've got a sane where prince. Albert is these fine ass likings. And he's entire ministry surrounding industry he he's. He's entourage surrounding him. It was just. You. Know my feelings on Sir Richard Branson appearing. In that James Bond Film I forget where it was, but Casino Royale say no royal. Yeah, where he goes for the security gate, so it was a cameo saying because he obviously you know. Paid for the film, so he gets a little feature in a take. It takes away some of the the escapism of what the films I debate, but I'm watching the basically, it was almost like. Like sponsored posts, he's Serena's album. It was more on watching someone else having a good time. What is in? It threw me. For me, there was just known respite in this field. It was very confusing from start to in a film I. Think I read. Dana Comments Section you normally read the comments section. This is is a good film. Only Ferrari strategists could understand as I. think that pretty much sums it up. Whoever said that one over for Brittany Gibberish? It makes no sense to anybody, probably not even anyone at the time, but you just have to make something I suppose I for me. As soon as the he's, he's serenity. Without he's fine, and then that was in the Phil just taking photos of like and the flowers, the flowers distribution at the end for no clear reason, it was very very confusing. Piece of cinema and I think it's. Really I mean hasn't. The world suffered enough in the last couple of? What should have been better a? Admittedly must have been a little bit predictable, but the but the Clinton should have been in. Charlotte. Pulls in to pick up prince helmet or whatever. And conduct the second illegal apparant Monaco the the ending should have been rebecca. The florist was driving the car all along and she went faster than Charlotte Leclerc clue. And then they then Charlotte, we look at the stop. Watch turned to the camera. He's a gas. He's drops phrase crime role credit. See. That would've been fine I could've could've at least bring a positive message about washing your hands during the coronavirus, where as soon as they hand over the flowers I mean they took the mosques in the? We could have had you know it's just. There's so many other. Directions this film could have taken, and they didn't take any of the faded the purpose of it, and like the music kind of annoyed me because it's like I'm not for the production music I'm here to hear the the law Ferrario whatever I don't know what it is. A Ferrari only saw it was Mercedes. Twist, it was a shame because you know it takes a lot of people. A lot of town was table to actually make something together. It was just letdown. I bought the story wasn't was the. It's a shame that the hype surrounding. It was more exciting than the actual. Bid itself so. Into Papu. Paraphernalia and and and jobs. It's. Just it was just not good you blocks. I wouldn't watch it again. Zero Asterisk, writing the worst part the worst part for me. Was it afterwards you wanted to go and watch the original, and you have to white through so many fake uploads on Youtube. To find to find the version top they. Recorded it off this grade. Yes, there was one of the very your tighting seventy beddoe ice to do it lifts. You gave me come on, guys. Hey, I've got an idea. It's one or the other great coffee was the of course the. mispaid McGinley lap and Elvis Park all harsh. Should we should we? Should we recreate it and have a better version is I don't want to be a broken books of neutrals promise. We make little dinky. Speed off of the Lebron rendezvous, think we can do that I. Mean I think it's very achievable? We have a GOPRO to video camera. I've got to Oh. What's? Bowl results. Then the filmmaker. Box of neutrals list base in Melbourne and have access to A. Daihatsu mighty boy. Box of neutrals dot, com blaze and let us know. Just make the subject I had to mighty boy. It'll be satisfied enough to see those emails covey to the invokes. Look forward to that Tend to keep these problems. We're run now of keeping promises box of neutrals. Don't want it to end. There was also an erase that which we're not really gonNA. Talk about this week. That was also happening. Anyone did want to know George. Russell is the virtual champion. Of virtual champion, it's so strange you know what the me. That was the great. tyco laced George Russell and Williams were. On the map for positive reasons, for once because let's face it. I don't think it's going to get much better from here. For the rest of rest of the full them, so in terms of stocks up for. If you WANNA. Morally and ethically exploit the virus. The Williams as sports franchise certainly profited greatly, and could why why shouldn't they? There was also a twenty four hour virtual lemond rice. Maximum step in Landau team red line along with some other drivers, but I didn't finish because they computer froze. Maybe easier was also hacking computer time. Which? Thousand case. It's such like what. They described as technical issues. We technically are strictly speaking. But normally when you discuss motorsport and talking about technical issues you know talking about knows, update interrupting your workflow in an opportune moment. Well there's electric's in the car. It's just the brave new frontier that were. We face now that. Sort of Language such as rage, quit installing affect up king as well you know in a lot of other subcultures that they all mean very different things. For say to be honest, this is just we're gonNA. Get used to this brave new world of vase full. It's because. Then going anyway, this is a question that I starting to come up now because we're now at least performed the one only a couple of weeks three weeks away. I think it from the first rice. American motorsports already started. The Super Kaduna. Strategy was starting on two weeks. I think is performing. Want Anyway. The transition if you like from E. Sports back to not eastport reviews ports if you like, he's under why of going no sports continues, but all the this the series that was set up to try with the appetite. If you like in the last couple of months, a winding down, but eastport has gone through these huge. Boom in audience, numbers as people have been craving sport, and they've all switched onto various ones backed by former indycar whatever it is. What happens now what happens now? Are we going to look back in a months time when we've had several versions of the Australian Grand Prix. Championships onto why? Don't seem strange. Look back and think of it all that fuss about Simon pageant crashing into land, norris or bad maximum stabbings computer filing lemond. He's going to be like a weed fever dream, even a couple of weeks, since pretty likely well, certainly for the Lux of Daniel laps in God got sacked. From Nascar. Remembers nine to tell you the truth now, so the best that same side long ago right, but back when it was the real hot button topic boy he was. It was the one of the biggest sporting stories going around so? Yeah I think. Up The passage of time really is that the. The new cycle changes so quickly and. Before we know it went out? Saying that lot closer to the real will tunnel in terms of real world motorsport again I think it's just a pay trough. Obviously, this was a very hot. The swingback hearing about. So the swingback of Restrictions being being married and then subsequently as saw. -ASEBALL certainly the big winner in this, but it's certainly not going to. Pay. Has Been Winner. I popped onto the same. Because let's let's face. It wasn't too long ago. That's all we had. It's going to be it's GonNa be really interesting whether to say. The East sports can ride this way if you like and becomes bigger than ever before and we drew C- coming? On on the pro side of sports, you had people like Shas. Leclerc for example, become a convert essentially someone who didn't even own any kind of gaming rig. As far as I know. Before this situation. I now is on it all the time. He stopped playing any of these Games cobstock. Young I and do you really believe he didn't earn any gaming kit? Do you really believe in? Are you surely young listening with an end? Playstation or something like that may afforded in Monaco where he grew up. Do you think look? I think if he can? Live in Monaco in the spicy can probably afford it. GonNa go to cash converters in Monaco. Go play cash. Bullying Convin- This is the second hand industry really? Really guy well. It's very. I guess in terms of the motorcycle world as sports. Is that big thing? Can it sustained? Petit, that growth that it's that tad in terms of that spike and other industry facing similar questions as now. Sort of. Cousin podcast box of one thousand puzzle paces. The puzzle industry is going to be the big one. It's going to be like well. Geez, we say. I. Was a record for us how do we sustain. Interest in puzzles. The if you've in puzzles, now's probably the time to sell Iraq and this is the time zone. Get Out! Get Out of it before the. What happened to newspapers happens to puzzle exactly we'll. We'll get the puzzle master on the show over the next couple of weeks. You can talk over. We'll try to Quebec if one the puzzle master just to wrap up a couple of other quick stories before we move onto cancellation, watch the only regular segment we've had all year said. Sixteen is pretty impressive, isn't it? Another promise not broken by box of nuchills teetering that Seguin. The real genuine, the biggest genuine formula story of the week. I think that wasn't virtual or wasn't terrible movie. Is that McLaren is not going to be one of the teams that is doing one of these preseason tests. If you want to call them that, they're not genuine preseason tests or using old cars, and they, because this is the longest time in any professional driver or provisional mechanic re the Korea since becoming provisional that they won't have done racing for one of a bit of Friday's. Friday's everyone's going. Atlanta Norris took three kinds of jets because McLaren can't run their twenty nine car, which is powered by Renault the first year after they switched from Honda reportedly going to motorsport week because Reynaud weren't gives them an engine, because of course from next year this which Mercedes, and then you wonder why Reynaud seems absolutely often in the paddock, and no one seems to like. That's interesting ploy. Because red bull still have that Chaika and CARE IF IT HAS A. Sticker on it. It's one hundred percent Renault ball bearing that show car so. They still have to pay some kind of invoice tonight, but maybe maybe you'll be clearly if we never say the radar showing corrugated the at engine, we'll know exactly why because of the Cold War that ran, is saints be facing? WHO's just quitting with all their other? Sort of survey or former customers debate of a cheeky tactic. McLaren, and going to be compatible presume you're gonNA, be competing before they constructors championship after Mclaren beat them to that position last year. Pointing. Engines a life cycle. They told me about the red bull Renault which were mostly well. Some of them were hybrid. I guess but back to the days when popular. Right when you say like a home brand version that's released of the Renault engine like generic a generic engine when they can buy one off the shelf, surely that happens after a certain amount of time like the full death, a engine back in the day. Maybe that maybe there is the solution to form the ones. Potential engine supply woes just if you are impoverished. You can have hand me, Damn. ICE, which let's face it probably. Wouldn't too bad this point. Be arrived. Solve some problems for everybody as well. That's why McLaren's testing almo-. Well most other teams, a lot of other teams attesting Renault Mercedes certainly last week Ferrari has intends to reno be testing Austria because both Franz and the UK have all sorts of quarantine restrictions at the moment. I said we'll. Just both of you can go straight to Austria. Fair enough even racing point doing some kind of test which shows. They still rising point on the Aston Martins until next to you or something like that. So, everyone's getting around it except for McLaren paroled McLaren. Good. Colorado quick stories for eventually bought. Ask says he's not worried about. It'll take because Mercedes, said they not talking to him, which kind of the? It's no great for Sebastian. Battle He's been hearing wolf say. You know, of course we're going to have to consider. When actually just like winding you mom all. At least I haven't said he's got the full support of the board. Wonder a wonder, if eight be stuffed a wonder if We'll fees. Branch stacking. Get the supportive. Ours but means Veltri potus presumably in the box eight for next year alone. He didn't say that they hadn't said they're not talking to anyone else talking to. George Russell. WHO's now the virtual world champion? So you got a contract for next? You know he doesn't write a case. He should be worried you. What you what You Watch Veltri? You'll be a backbencher before you know it. If you don't careful, you happens. These things happened so quickly. Kimmy Reichman is out of contract as well. And he says he's not going to decide. He's fused until the end of the fair enough. Considering haven't even started racing in June, but he's going to be forty one this year. He's contract expires. He needs, and this is a difficult partner right so he's forty one. You think well. Why wouldn't you retire? Although the Alpha male factors very close to house, I guess the F. is fairly low these. But in a good way, not bad. But he's eleven. Rice starts twelve rice entries, or there's not really any difference these days, but then the numbers. Behind. Before you overtakes Ruben Barrichello's records for those two categories for rice, DOTS and rice entries. At the start of the year like well, he's going to beat it this year. All of a sudden. He might not because who knows what's going to happen this year. Yeah, the the calendar is the great variable in this year's world championship and let's face it. I reckon that's that's a model. We can go on for the future, I think we have a surprise calendar in terms of like mystery ticket, you just turn up to the Warsaw. You're going up until you get to the two possible control in the in the nation that you land. And and that's you'll wakes grown parade, so the the element of surprise will will will fix forget qualifying. Forget everything, forget practice It's mystery grown praise where? You're my parents used to talk about catching mystery flights, but they say they always just went to Adelaide so. That'd be respect Adelaide. Sleep point, let's. Bring it up. Well, we mischief lot took us there. Exactly. The point is that it wasn't a mystery. How many weeks of the Russian Grand Prix will formula put off with the? Somehow, it's wreaked. Exactly, imagine that. So. Who knows what's going to happen to keep you? Because you seem racing into. He's we forty. Two extends these contracts another. You'll turn forty two I mean it's pretty stoop performing I guess he's in the NFL, for a Mayo, obviously in the other, has ultimate Antonio. Juvenile it's not really the the team leader that they would be looking for if rocket and retired, so maybe he's just gotTa. Keep going. How was? Michael when he stopped. He must've been losing. Is What do you want to forty two? When he stopped, he came back when I was forty, wasn't he? So yeah, it'd be similar. Yeah, and both of them had a gap in the had multiple gap with a just went off in did other things so? Farrakkhan he sort of. Almost refreshed him a little bit. By the time it came because he had a brilliant comeback. When you went back to Lotus all those years ago, so so he kind of accidentally extended Korea by why a little bit and potentially this. Talking about other athletes were talking about extending their careers, because they finally just catching up on a bit of sleep in recovery. He could. He could reach the these trillion pitching A. Retiree he could be six five time. Yes the cash out of these super. The current the current retirement age is sixty seven. Oh, it's just out of reach. The box of neutrons installation only regular segment of twenty twenty. Whichever really goes to show? What kind of year has been? Has Been News in our old friend cancellation. What we've got three cancellations this week. So you know so, so which which praised, says the baby say taking this. BANNED FROM! Formula One is Singapore. The Japanese grand. Prix also cash, and Azerbaijan is normal not this year anyway. They've all been They've all been roasted the calendar. Understandable two of them are straight sick. Is that kind of makes sense the Japanese pre to the motor JP race there was canceled. Same promotor I'm pretty sure so they've. They've said no more, and you think they're also probably on the Olympics is probably they're gonNA try and get stuff so the Olympics next year. I WANNA I wanNA focus sometimes focus, and you think I tell you what the the the the Olympics ends Ed Covid nineteen to the greatest parachutes, anyone could could pull. Why isn't that pause? Being fixed prince album. Olympics. Discount Bark. Crying Varsovie Olympia. You're mirror repay show. Olympia. Pharmacies Pharmacies Gone Bark. Cried of ours. That's good, so it's true Jamie Hi fi couldn't David. SCHUPP wouldn't work. Out David shops anyway, there's no such thing suspicious to me. He must've be A. Augustine collapsed in two thousand six thought very good very good. But this positive news on the F., one potential, anyway, obviously they putting together a calendar, and that's good. But for all those people who have for decades now since dropped off the calendar thousand and whatever it was. Ninety, whatever it was I've been asking for Imola to come back to Formula One. Well. It's looking more positive. Imola fans because they've got a great one licensed back, which means there led to host Formula One races, and there's talk that, of course they would like to be a second Italian rice, a second race in Italy. Athlete having grown up timber, because whatever comes to the current Italian Grand Prix on the sixth of September. We'll be Ferrari's one thousand rights, and obviously that'd be good to have that in Italy I guess it would be nice. Oh, no, not to disparage the grown pre credentials of China's growing up and it was. It wasn't exactly the. Maybe, the atmosphere or the or the event? The formula on would have hoped. To celebrate, a major milestone is one hasn't grown sprays. For Ferrari if if all of a sudden they had the celebratory grown pary at the Hockenheim ring on. In front of all of this, besides so I need. How well that will go damn Mr Speaker especially if they get punted by as they probably would do. And we'll season. I suspect to be belted by many verbal with Lucena. Winning and then he'd spin out somewhere. Unfortunately, not play of stereotype. Ignore it the good word, though is that it might not be Imola. It could be Majella which is knee. Which is near Florence? To from Florida, maybe that'll be a problem. Everyone has to stay in a big city, but that's the that's apparently the favorite now because they are credited to run a formula one race as well. It's a track well-known again in motor GP. So. It's attractive familiar to motorsport fans, and it's a very quick track. It's a track that would be really interesting to wonder writer again in terms of stocks, socks, and the people who'd be most affected by this again. Card Masters. Twenty ways Magellan. I quickly have to get the license art she. Just take the trash out of that. That's. Because if it's any good. It might become a staple on the Formula One calendar for many years to come. I think we need. Our nobody J.? Pay has multiple variants of the Spanish growing pray I think Formula One. It could be I tape having to. Italian goals we'll just have to come up with a Gremio already coming up with a couple of interesting names for these double doubleheaders. It'll be good to say what they call. These other double hitters at other racetracks I think that's the most interesting part of the season so far it's funny. How what? I think the second Russian grown parade could be called the. The Knicks through scandal ninety. Three. Magellan could be the European paying pre or now. That can be this iden- go purchase San Marino, and there's never been. A good catch you'll rice day schooling around the Vatican. Why not the, but that'd be good? When there was that weekend where all the former aide drivers winning meant to poke some reason, why combine have Vatican pray? It'll be alright. Majella on the calendar, which is good news Ridley of course, another race that might be coming back these apparently in quote, strong negotiations. What that means is the L., Gava circuit in Portugal. Another classic track suppose another throwback. Perform the one. We're going to have these we in season I. Suspect. We're going to have all these. Playing the classic mode in a Formula One game and the next. We're GONNA. Go back to all these tracks, and no one wants to go to. It's going to be a bit of a shock it will be. It'll be refreshing sought to say. Different. Tracks that. We have entertained it'd we lost to Gary Somewhere? That's not been designed by whom until yes. Let's be honest. Yes, that would be a shock, not the same in the credits that I assume role on the Formula World Fade after. They're in strong megotiating. It's not gonNA, happen to one of these tracks at the moment, probably taking a backup option in case they can't formula go further abroad, which easing same increasingly unlikely given. We've had three cancellations. Just this week that are not in Europe Hockenheim these one race that he's a bit of a backup. Backup role, but apparently reportedly. Is Unlikely to appear on the calendar because they seek whiting and I need to decide what they're going to do with their own tracks now unlikely to host a great relationship Timbet when they were on standby, apparently for a rice, but in exchange you might get a double header in China. Russia and Abu Dhabi because reportedly they've all been offered double Rice's lighter in the Sr.. Classic Europe why why not Abu Dhabi. Greeks on the roof like eleven other James.

Hi, Michael, Rob, and nobody good that he's putting running me last week. We're talking about old merchandise actually very briefly. I'm glad someone picked up on it.
