I think you made the point. We're kind of used to the standard line of someone being in good spirits when they're reporting on their health so it actually have the phrase. He's doing a lot better.

James West on invention and inclusion in science
"James west was born in nineteen thirty one and grew up in prince edward county virginia in before we dove into his research and work as a mentor. I wanted to know more about little kid. Jim and his relationship to science the desire to know how things work and why they were was my biggest motivator and i Completely forgot about this on purpose. But i took my grandfather's pocket watch support hundred and five pieces zenit. But i couldn't get it back together which resulted in rather severe punishment but it didn't tear my desire to know and understand how things work and so i was told that i could only take things apart that weren't working and that was the wrong thing. Say to me. Because if i could break it i did so i could get it. Why caesar now you're you're breaking stuff you're like look it doesn't work so right. Okay i mean were you. Were your parents. Supportive of your interest in in engineering and science absolutely not i was going to be the doctrine brother the data stove. I swear versa. They didn't care which would went. Only that it went in one of those two directions and When i told my father that i was changing my major from biology to physics He introduced me to two black men who have. Phd's and chemistry that were working in the post office score poem order on the railroad because the best job they could get was teaching at high school. And that didn't pay enough to support their families and he thought that i was well on the way to becoming one of them because You could be a preach at teacher lawyer doctor. But that was about it and terms of professions or black people and prince edward county virginia but in the face of all that jim stuck with it he graduated from temple university with a degree in physics and then went on to work at bell. Labs for more than forty years and his big invention with gearhart. The foil electric microphone didn't come from trying to solve one specific problem. I didn't. I don't think sat down and looks invent a better microphone. That was not the motivation at all. The motivation was why does nature behave in the way that it does. And and if i can understand that then how can i apply my knowledge to improving or to make things work better or lasts longer in this case. Oh to increase lifetime right okay. So so mu- because my understanding of this gym and you can. You can grade me. And i'm i'm worried about my grade but so basically this is really basic but microphone convert sound into an electrical signal right and it needs power to do that and you. Youtube found a material that you could basically be kind of permanently so you know basically permanently charge so instead of like necessarily needing an extra battery in there you know. You've you've got it without that. And that material that you found was essentially teflon foil urinate less. Okay okay. well now. That i've got my a plus in science. Let's let's talk. Let's talk more about bringing people new stem the thing. It's the thing that you're passionate about thinking that i'm passionate about so you know in your experience what works or if you feel like it's more importantly what doesn't when you're trying to bring people into snap well i think honesty is is The the very important role. It's not all roses so we get some thorns to nature. Doesn't always behaving the way that you you'd think it should. And and i think honesty's important because you want to succeed and and if you know that nature is not always going to work the way you'd think it works this gives you the fortitude to continue to your investigation will continue looking for a solution to a particular problem. In other words. There are two sides stored the glory side. And then there's the the grunge side but even more important science and technology got us to where we are and it's the only thing that's going get us further or out of whatever difficulty that we have a global warming all these problems. We need more diverse teen stem. diversity has been shown to be have an advantage. I used to worry about brainstorming sessions. Where all the white guys over here. And i was over ear but guess what solution west somewhere in between. And this is what. I learned that. Even though i taken same courses you know the same disciplines. I think differently as the black man than white males to yeah but this diversification is what makes this country great and what is very disturbing is that were not taking full advantage of our natural resources in human beings that can work and be productive in the field and this is the reason that i continue to push to make it available in. Jim's been pushing for a long time you can trace his efforts back to nineteen seventy at bell labs. Winning helped form the association of black laboratory employees all the way to jim's work today with his graduate students at johns hopkins university and nonprofit called the end genuity project. They offer math and science programs to students in baltimore public schools. Jim told me a story about joining their board of directors. Back in two thousand fourteen. When when i was asked if i would be interested in joining booed i wanted to know what the program's really all about and what i found. Was that the majority of students in the program mayhem and that. This did not represent the demographics of the city of ballroom. So i said looking. Put me on the board. But i'm going to make some changes. I am a change agent here because this does not represent city baltimore and not enough black people and women in the scrotum but today the program is eighty percent underrepresented naarden winning big shift. Not only that are the last time i looked two years ago. We graduated one hundred students all of them. Fellowships and scholarships seven were admitted to johns hopkins. And by the way these changes were made without ever touching the requirements for the permanent. Okay so what does this say to you. The says that they're talented people out there that we're not taking advantage if we can make that kind of change in the city of baltimore within a finite number of years with this is certainly an indication to me that there are underrepresented minority and women who are in love with science and really really look for opportunities to get in and and genuity project made that offer and they they took us up on it and i'm so glad they did. Okay so jim. I hope you don't mind me sharing this. You just tell me if you don't want it in the episode but by the time this interview comes out you will of turned ninety congrats birthday. Well thank you. So what's your advice for young scientists for young inventors who may be see themselves in you. What advice would you give them. Well there's so many things that i can think of. But i but more importantly is to follow your star you know. I'm pretty sure that whoever made me said make a scientist and a not fulfill that responsibility us. Oh i think that the happy people those people that are doing what they love to do. And if it science gray but in many cases you don't know whether it science not because you haven't had the exposure right that would tell you whether the something you think you would be interested in doing so Museums of books on and on and on learn. Learn as much as you can as early as you can. And the only major major advices learn all the math that you possibly can because it
Interview With Dan Westergren
"I was recently exchanging emails with today's guest. A bad he's premium membership and it turns out he has a love of sauk cling lock. Do he used to rice and he even spent time in south australia from the us. I while on assignment for white for national geographic now is picked up and i poked a few more questions by any told me on the nat geo and commercial travel photographer stock at home trying to decide how to make money with that getting on an airplane right now putting my towards commercial real estate architectural things but honestly don't know what's going to work out a cape listening to the podcast about facebook marketing for portraits etc thinking. Maybe that's the way to go. We exchange and other email to and i post a few questions and he said for more than twenty years. I was director of photography for national geographic. Travel up magazine. I had an editor who let me find the graph. A couple of stories a year usually adventure top stories and i was lucky enough to photograph stories to the magazine. Such as climbing mont blanc the matterhorn and skiing to the north pole now following that exchange. I invited him on for this recording. I'm talking about dan west to grin and i'm wrapped to having this now. Dan welcome andrew so good to talk to you. Do you still pinch yourself when you hear an intra liked about the things that you've done in the past. I do i do. It's it's kind of funny. It's a hard act. Live up to for many many years. I would tell my photographer friends who seemed to have up and down lives. You know the freelance yoyo. And i would joke to them. Well you know. I'm addicted to my paycheck. And i have the chance to send you guys out into the field my editor lets me go out every now and then you know. This is working pretty well. Well you know the media marketplace changes and so now here. I am not working on the staff at national geographic anymore doing some projects for them but just trying to figure out how to make this thing happen as a photographer. Yeah the tables have really turned. I think not only for youtha for all of us. Haven't i this year. Oh yeah yeah. I mean and it's a double whammy with a travel photographer because i don't even of course you can imagine after all those years. I have this huge rolodex of all these photo editors of magazines and things like this but nobody even pays money for magazines to take pictures anymore. It's like the rug was pulled out from under my profession. The one savior for me. The last few years has been you could either call it native advertising or content marketing or partnership projects. That's the kind of things like last year. I got to go to canada. Three times for national geographic. To do ten day long stories about places and so i did prince edward island nova scotia new brunswick last year and british columbia and those were my favorite Trips to take. Because i will talk to my producer at national geographic since i had a background in doing the photo editing. At national geographic. The photo editors really acted like a regular editor at most magazines. If we thought that a story was not sufficiently visual we would tell people. We didn't think we should do the story. And a lot of magazines. The phone will editors are just kind of in their corner in somebody throws them a manuscript is air pictures to go with this so when they tell me okay we wanna to do an online piece about adventures in new brunswick ten adventures in new brunswick will then i get to study new brunswick i pull out a map i get defined tended ventures. I contact all the people that i think might lead me to those adventures and then make pictures that i hope people find interesting and then when we get back in my case usually i sit down and they know that i've chosen the photo subjects with story line and so they don't even send a writer. They have a friend of mine. Who i get on the phone marielle. And is her name. And she sorta ghosts rights for me. And i just tell her what my experience was like and why i went to particular plex. And that's just that's what i love about. It all is to do the research into a place and then actually go take those pictures myself in sounds amazing and said the way you described this right now the role you had. Oh have you familiar with the movie. The secret life of walter. Mitty of course. Yes you the walter. Meeting is at your role in national geographic traveler. It was a little bit different because he was more had a role that we would call film review which were the people that actually got to look at the pictures. I didn't have a big role in putting the magazine together. So you know that was kind of funny. It was interesting that i love that movie. You know he got to go out into the field. And i've just i've seen that movie so many times i was watching it and my kids. My son is twenty two. My daughter's twenty five and they're really into music and david bowie died. We had to listen to all the versions of space. Oddity that we could find.

No one ever does that. We've got so much more to offer but the royal family are a big attraction for us as well because immediately.

Princess own followed by his brother prince andrew. I'm also also a further brother. Who is prince edward. So all of these people are healthy and still in public Very match very much in the next generation. There's probably a lot of nieces and nephews. There is many nieces. And as we're speaking at the moment we've got three kings and one queen in waiting to go on the throne. What does that mean well. Basically what it means the next person in line for the throne when the queen dies will be prince. Charles right that will then be followed. By prince william his eldest son then prince william's eldest son prince george. Okay then we have his prince william's daughter princess charlotte. So i said that makes sense when the eldest son know if charles had an older daughter would she be next in line or is it still the old fashioned. Still be william. But when william and kate.

Authorship Attribution of Lennon McCartney Songs
"Mark Glickman and I'm at Harvard University as a senior lecturer in statistics, statistics is a topic that the audience really loves hearing about before we get into the main topic. Can you give us a little bit of background on the areas of stats that you studied or maybe those that interest you the most? Yeah, well. What got me into statistics in the first place? Actually was my interest in the Game Chess I've always been interested in how chess players get rated when they play in tournaments in other. Other words when you go to a tournament, you get a numerical rating. Where if you have two players have ratings, you could actually determine the profitability that player defeats at other, and that was something that I was always interested in these chess rating systems, and I ended up getting really into statistics and the mathematical aspects of these kinds of systems and I developed a couple systems that are in use these days, especially in online gaming called the Licko system. So that's really got me into statistics in. In, the first place and I really have a passion for teaching, so that's a big part of my statistics life, and then much more recently got into the intersection between statistics and music, and this Beatles authorship attribution project is one of the bits of work also got involved with a student who is really the primary driver of this work on basically how to use statistically generates music that sounds like Corrales, and so we have a paper. That's GonNa, be coming very shortly in that area so. So, yes, a music's become a much bigger focus in my statistics like these days. Is there anything obviously interest could drive it but I'm curious if there's any computational component to it may be the availability of computers to run big simulations, and that sort of thing has that influenced the ability to ask interesting questions along these lines? Yeah, generally it helps I. mean I tend not to gravitate to problems which can only be solved by having the appropriate hardware to be able to crank through the data? Having access to good computing definitely makes a big difference I think we can take for granted that any listener must be aware of the Beatles and their influence on music. Regardless of what they like should they could a few, but tell us a little bit more background for those that don't know the discography. What were the types of problems you were looking to? To approach this whole project essentially started when I met my main collaborator for this project Jason Brown. When the two of US happened to be at this conference in Prince, Edward Island! We just happened to be talking. After I gave a talk some material. Actually that's related to rating systems for chess players, and we just happened to stumble on our mutual interest. Interest in music, and in the Beatles, and he was telling me that he had gained a little bit of infamy about fifteen years ago, where he used essentially a forty-eight analysis, decomposing the sounds from the starting court of a hard day's night to figure out the actual instrumentation of the cord, because that really been something that was in pretty serious dispute so. So he published a little article audit and got him some attention, and he was telling me since then one of the things that he was particularly interested in was being able to represent Sohn's particularly Beatles songs in particular format in his area of math, which is graph theories, essentially representing music in the form of essentially graphs or networks and he wanted to. Be Able to use it to be able to distinguish authorship of different Beatles songs like maybe there'd be stylistic differences that would be evident in these representations, anyone really making a lot of headway and whole problem of being able to sing wish authorship is something that's much more firmly in the wheelhouse of a statistician, so I told him it sounds like he probably something I would want to be heavily involved in and so we ended up starting this collaboration, and that was kind of started it all, so we tried lots of different sorts of things. Things to take the music and be able to figure out. How can you predict authorship from musical features, and that's essentially what led us down the path to the work that eventually got published so from my perspective, wearing my data scientist hat, I would say you have a fixed data set that is partially labeled. Does that feel like the right framing for you? The main question of interest really and just to take a step back is that there are a handful of songs by the Beatles and again there's nothing about this problem that has to. To be specific to be spent for our interests there handful songs by the Beatles that or of disputed authorship, and so the idea is that you start off with a data set where the labels which is to say the authorship of Lennon McCartney songs is known that's known because the Beatles Bayside interviews in various information that's been gathered over the years is of note authorship, so we have a data set where the labels are no, and then in addition to that we have for all of those songs. We have a whole bunch of features A. A whole bunch of information about various musical aspects of the songs and idea is to form a statistical model that uses those features to predict the labels, and then once you establish that relationship then you apply to the songs of disputed authorship to see the predictions going to be based on that relationship, so for non composers who might be listening? Perhaps they could be intimidated by this problem. Saying music is all about creativity and unpredictability in these sorts of things. Is this truly assault problem from that point of view well? Yes, solvable a loaded word. I mean we certainly made our best attempt by Best Ibiza? After making lots of attempts that were not terribly predictive, we finally stumbled on said features and a statistical approach that seems to do a pretty reasonable job. Making predictions, the simple answer I suppose is yes, it's possible at solvable in the sense that there is information that you can extract. That is predictive of other ships. I could be pretty. Pretty concrete about this one thing that we knew before going into this work, and this is something that has been well known by musicologists studying. Beatles, music, which is that Paul? McCartney songs in particular tend to have melodies that tend to move around a lot like Paul McCartney, had a musical vocal range, fairly wide and part of that tended to be reflected in his moving melody by contrast John Lennon. had a reasonable vocal range tended to write melodies that didn't move around very much like he used a lot of repeated notes, or the vocal movements would stay very close and pitch, and that's characteristic of a lot of John Lennon songs, and so we knew even going into the problem that you know. musicologists have identified differences in the way that each of these songwriters would write music, so we knew that there were features that could be quantified and picked up. Up and used as distinguish irs in these classification models.
Win The Hour Win The Day
"It's so great to be here with my guest today. She's got so much energy she's got so much life she's going to pick up my energy he already has and she's an author. She's founder of a very cool platform. That helps you be more productive. Because she's all about productivity. I mean I think probably your middle name is productivity. But I've got Chris Ward with me today. Hey Chris are you in mindfulness mode? Today I always am. I think that is hugely purposeful and powerful and impacts everything. That's cool to be in mindfulness mode and be productive. Because you know some people think that those things are out opposing sides right now that if you're quiet and you're doing nothing and you're just meditating. How can you be productive? But that's not true right Chris. Not at all. I totally agree. Oh I'm so glad we've got you on today Chris Ward like I said. She's the author of this book which is amazing. Win The our win the day and let me tell you how productive she is. I sent her an email and said hey Chris I'd like to have you on the show and wish that book landed in my house so fast you wouldn't even believe it. I looked at the package on just a second. Didn't we just connect by email like a day or two ago? How did that book yet here so fast? That's how productive Chris. His and so she's a very very interesting person and she lives in. Prince Edward Island Canada. Which is an amazingly cool place to live. I've been there once and I think it's a wonderful place to visit But Anyway Chris. What does mindfulness even mean to you? Oh boy you know what that took me a lake up until like two years ago to really understand what that I that was a real struggle for me. I didn't really get it and this whole idea of it's not the destination it's a journey. I was I kept thinking. What are they talking about? Why do they keep saying this? Meant nothing to me and you know what boy Oh boys. My life turned around since I got a better grasp on that. Mindfulness really to me means being in the moment. Giving your full attention and getting the most out of that moment because otherwise I spent years walking through doors before it even opened them because it was all about a rush rush rush. Ni- call myself a recovering Russia and did not serve me or anyone around me. So you know if you're here in this moment being in this moment is. GonNa get you all the juice you can out of this moment and I think that really just cripples everything from productivity to happiness now all that other stuff so I'm all about being mindful. Oh so I'm so glad to talk to you because you know I have to say kind of in my mind. I think productivity. Oh yeah go go. Go work work work. Do this do that save time move forward move forward and I kind of always thought well. How can that really be mindfulness? How can you be mindful and really be all about productivity productivity productivity? So can you explain more about how those two things dovetail together? Yeah so what happens. Is People really give productivity a bad rap in this and I'm not in love with the word either if I could figure out how to describe it differently I would. But that's just you know the umbrella which people are searching for productivity or time. Really you know when I talk to entrepreneurs or anything anyone like that. I'm really talking about you. Know How can you be in the moment and get your best work out of that moment and you can't if you're chasing the clock if you're just thinking racer what's the next thing. Next thing. Boo Boo Boo Boo. And you're not focused on what you're doing you know it just becomes an insane game of catch up and so what you really want to do is be in a calm state because what happens is you know throughout history and all the best inventions in mankind. Were not only done in commerce states but in states of clay a relaxation. So that's really where your creativity everything comes from. So what I would tell you if you can set up your time so that you know this is what I'm working on for the next hour and I'm all in. You're just going to get amazing results from that. Otherwise it's just like you said it's go go in. It's what I used to call hysterical Chris in rushing rushing in you to rush around you in. It's not pretty so you know if you can just have a strategy have some easy kermit things in place that are going to allow you to really maximize your genius. Nece and everything you do. Well it's going to be much easier. Light it really is. I agree and you know it. Sounds like there's one simple concept that would really help people get there. I mean. Obviously I've heard this before. But it's like don't try to multitask. Would you say that's true? Yeah so what happens is you really can't multitask. It's like Sh- shining flashlight. In two spots at the same time. You can't what you do is you. Have context switching. So you're switching back and forth between ideas you're rotating and the term multitask. If you WANNA get really boring. Came from when they first invented computers. They thought you know K it. Can it can have priorities and multitask in all this stuff. That's really where it was focused on. Really start to use that word a lot Rut it. It's not an effective strategy at all. It will make you crazy. And there's all kinds of studies at bore you with this show you how it decreases your productivity by forty percent Indian. Just it's you know. And the sad thing is nowadays so many people don't even realize multitasking. Like we've all heard though no I can hear you. I'm just texting you know that I just stopped talking right. So you're right doing one thing at a time. That's that
How did BC successfully flatten the curve?
"Columbia and Ontario where the two provinces had I by Kofi Nineteen. They recorded their first cases just a day apart back at the end of January and BC. In fact was the first place but evidence was found of the virus spreading in the community that was march fifth at looked like BC might have just as much trouble as Ontario at that point. But it hasn't since then. British Columbia has been a model of how to control a pandemic and in the past couple of weeks. The province seems to have successfully flattened the curve and in the process. It has made a star out of its provincial health officer as of Monday British Columbia had less than two thousand cases of cove in nineteen four comparison Ontario had more than fourteen thousand and Quebec was closing in on twenty five thousand. Yes the Central. Canadian provinces are two and three times the size of BC but those numbers are much lower than the population would suggest what happened and British Columbia that didn't happen and Ontario and Quebec. What can other provinces learn from? Bc's approach how much of this was preparation. How much was response? How much was luck and will it stay that way because the curve flat for good and BC or is a new spike? Bending it back up right now. We'll ask somebody who's been covering the provincial government and public health response every day during this crisis the soon as Claire takes us around the whole country for everything you need to know about this virus today. Worldwide the number of Kovic nineteen cases has now topped three million. The head of the World Health Organization says though some places are starting to ease restrictions. The pandemic is far from her and they're still a lot of work to be done. The organization is mainly concerned about trends in Africa Eastern Europe Latin America and some Asian countries. Here at Home Quebec Ontario. Have both released plans for easing restrictions around Cova Nineteen in Quebec elementary schools and daycares? We'll start reopening mid-may while high schools colleges and universities will not reopen until late August in Ontario. Three stage process was announced at will start with reopening select workplaces and allowing small gatherings stage. Two will involve opening more workplaces and outdoor spaces and allow some larger gatherings and the final stage would be to open all workplaces and allow pretty much all public gatherings each of these stages will last between two to four weeks. And it's not known yet when this will all start that all depends on when the province sees a steady decrease in the number of cases. Prince Edward Island is expected to release a plan as well this week on Monday. The province had reported no new cases for twelve straight days as of Monday evening. Forty eight thousand five hundred cases of Cova Nineteen in Canada with two thousand eight hundred and seventeen deaths. I'm Jordan Heath Rawlings and this is the big story we used is the legislative reporter for news. Eleven thirty which is a Vancouver radio station but she is based in Victoria at the legislature. I Lisa Hi and not at the legislature right now working out of my my living room in my bedroom. Yes well these are the Times. There's windows here. There is a windows at the legislature. Where I work. So that's a big upside for me. Well why don't you I for those of US outside the province? Can you explain how he's doing? And where the experts think. You guys are in terms of flattening the curve. All we hear about outside of the provinces praise right now well I think is had a few things that have made life a little better for us. Though we've still had one hundred people die and I think any amount of death is not is not ideal so we started early. I I think there was a few things that helped us out. People seem to have bought into the restrictions that we've had here we started because we had our case. I case early we also had Washington state to our South King County. There in the Seattle area was really hard. Hit at a care home. So those numbers skyrocket quickly which I think raised the alarm and we have the benefit of having a provincial health officer who has been on the front lines the situations like this before Dr Buddy. Henry was part of the SARS response in Toronto. She worked for the WHO. She was in the front lines of battling Bulla in Africa so she has a lot of experience which I think has held this province in a very solid position in the way that she's approach this but there was also some things that aided vc that you would just put down to luck. We had a later Spring break plan for students here which allowed our province to learn from the tragedies of other provinces and other places where the spring breaks were earlier so travelers went abroad and brought cove in nineteen home before we knew what a disaster it was going to become right so our curve your has eased our peak was at the end of March. There was one day that we had on the weekend there. Twenty Eighth March Ninety two cases and then a couple of days later seventy cases and then we've slowly been coming down from. There
What does the future of sports look like?
"Do you remember the night that coveted nineteen got serious and North America? It was early March. Donald Trump gave an oval office address to America about the new corona virus. At the same time Tom Hanks announced he'd tested positive. And meanwhile a basketball team was being pulled off the four. Utah's no longer on the floor. The thunder no longer on its bench. The officials have gone back to walk through fans here in the arena. I don't know what's going on. We don't know what's going on has been postponed also this astounding and unprecedented story continues to evolve the NBA is suspending the season. I say that understand. Now this is gonNA sound stupid. But we'll all that was going on. I was watching it happen. I was drafting a fantasy baseball team for the upcoming season. And now because I can't bear to turn them off I get notifications every week. Reminding me to set that fantasy teams lineups. There are no lineups. Baseball is a fantasy right now. There are no sports and beyond my stupid fake team even beyond all our collective excitement about things like watching the Toronto Raptors. Try to repeat. The absence of sports has an impact. There are hundreds of thousands of people who make a living directly or indirectly from those games all work but also on a more psychological level and this age of streaming and on demand and specialized curated playlists live. Sports are one of the very few things left that millions of people experienced together at the same time and the absence of that has an impact to a sports. World hasn't stopped. It's actually oddly busier than ever. Just in very different ways. They're huge changes coming to these games. Some of them will be temporary but some of them will be permanent. And someday when you watch a game on TV or go to a game in person or even if you don't give a crap about sports if you find downtown in a big city on a game notice those changes. When will that actually happen? And what do they look like? Nobody knows at least not yet. But we will talk to someone who has been working on finding out as soon as claire catches us up on what you need to know right now. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Says the government will have more funding and an expanded job placement program for? Post secondary students who are struggling to find work. He says all the programs introduced for students will add up to about nine billion dollars. Antero has now become the second province after Quebec to call in military helped to fight the corona virus in long term care homes premier. Doug Ford says this is meant to provide operational and logistical assistance. So that workers can focus on caring for residents Ontario's also expanding cove nineteen testing to every resident and worker in long term care homes on Prince Edward Island the premier and top health officials say. They're hoping to lift some of the restrictions around Kovic nineteen in early. May they say this'll be done slowly and with consultation it's still not known when school's in. Pe. I will reopen. And the one thing the premier says will not change anytime soon is the restriction on mass gatherings. Pi has had twenty six cases of the virus. As of Wednesday evening. Canada has now topped forty thousand cases of covert nineteen with two thousand and seventy four deaths. Jordan he'd Rawlings and this is the big story Richard A writer for the athletic. He is also the CO host of writer's Block on Sports Net five ninety fan in in Toronto and he is also the CO host of a new podcast called sports on Fos sports podcast much and a pandemic with no sports. Hello Richard why? Don't you start as somebody who's just completely immersed in the world of Sports By telling me what you've learned about sports since they've vanished. Well that's a good question. I think first and foremost it just re emphasizes the importance of the escapism in our lives. It's not to say that prior to covert nineteen. We didn't recognize and understand how important sports is. But I think it's sort of human nature that when you lose something that you love when you lose something that is very close to you it really reinforces in reminds you just how much you've missed it. The interesting thing about this so far is that the literal time it's been gone isn't long. I mean we haven't been a year away from sports. We haven't been five years away from sports. You know depending on sort of your locale or what your sport is. We're looking under two months still but it feels longer. That's kind of the interesting thing with this. That it feels like we've been missing all the stuff for such a long time and it reinforces just how important and you know how how impactful it is all our lives and no matter what your sport is. The likelihood is it impacts you in some form or matter on a daily basis whether you're watching the live event where you're reading about the Levin Bet. Whether your you know on facebook or twitter instagram talking tweeting or posting about the lot. Then so I think that's for me. What the absence of sports is Is reinforced is just how central a figure. It is in in so many lives were. Yeah they were Sports are so integrated into kind of the rhythm of our daily life. And I'm not just talking about you know you. As a as a sports journalist myself as a sports fan but Just the way kind of life ebbs and flows are a constant and. I guess what I want to know is what happens in that billion billion dollar industry when all of a sudden there's a huge vacuum and there's just nothing well a lot happens And it really depends on what area you want to focus on. You know for a the business part of the industry you're seeing furloughs layoffs and tournaments and or jobs that will never come back. Rogers Rogers Cup just announced. It's cancelled and tennis. Canada just furloughed all sorts of people. And it's their intention to bring people back but you just don't know you don't know what the what the future holds think about all the teams that Think about all the people who work either for a sports team and just think about like well the vice president or the public relations person or the or the player but all the jobs that are associated around sports the bars and the restaurants that do business on game days people who Who Work in the businesses in the neighborhood outside of ballparks vendors who provide sports teams will whatever they provide so the reason. It's a six billion dollar businesses. Because there's so many ancillary parts connected to it so very few people are not impacted by it at least culturally or psychically. But then there are millions of people who are literally economically impacted by it and those are the ones. I think about because the reality is all the jobs. Don't come back you know. My Hope. Is that most do? But I'm a realist to know that all won't what have we learned about? Who's getting taken care of an? Who's not since this has begun in the sports world. You know I've seen A lot of athletes and and some teams reaching to take care of their employees and then some outcries over other teams just letting everybody going letting them fend for themselves. Well usually learn who you know or again to sort of have these larger takeaways. At this point I think is impossible and probably a little arrogant and that we don't know what the world is going to sort of hold for us six months from now what it doesn't terms of a Sort of a micro focus is it does tell you what what institutions are community minded. What organizations are trying their best to save jobs versus doing immediate cuts? But I would say honestly for the most part. A lot of these sort of questions won't get answered for for months. We don't really know what it means because we still don't know how long how long were in this abnormal situation. And they're going to be parts of North America that returned faster and parts of North America. That a more conservative don't and we don't even know the impact of of what that means you know on a personal note. I support listening to the medical professionals and scientists and if that means we have to stay at home longer means that at the same time. I'm very fortunate where I have a job where I'm able to do that and still navigate. You know there are other people who hands so. It's just very hard to to answer that question organizations that really care about their employees. I think will do come up with the most creative solutions. They can't ultimately save jobs. Preserve Jobs. I wanted to ask you about the big picture. I but now on On more micro level you're doing daily sports radio and now You've launched a sports podcast at a time without sports What the heck you guys talking about. Well you'd be surprised. I mean if you have enough creative in And Smart People. And I'm not referring to myself on that is sort of behind the scenes people and producers technical directors etc. You can come up with stuff like the the fact is like the Nexus of sports and covert nineteen is is pretty significant from what these leaves are thinking now to what players are doing to athletes who are connected to medicine right now and some of the more remarkable things that that they're doing everybody essentially within this has a story that's kind of why they're still a lot of content to do. It's because every person in the sports world in some ways impacted this you know. Roger Goodell and Rob Manfred are impacted in a certain way commissioners of Leagues. And they have to figure out what the how to navigate the next path where. Hayley wickenheiser is impacted differently. Someone who's a former athlete but also an emergency room doctor? So you know has to sort of navigate that world so at least for both the sports on pause as well as writer's block I I have

PEIs election is next week. It could be historic.
"To what happens in Prince Edward Island. And I'm willing to bet that if pressed many of you would admit the same thing that needs to change there's an election next week and Canada's smallest province and some of the polls are well. They would make history if they turned out to be true liberal leader. Wade McLaughlin, set the vote for April twenty third, and according to the polls this election could produce Canada's first green party government to years ago. They had the support of nine percent of voters by last year. They'd risen to eighteen percent before bounding to thirty eight percent. This fall topping all other parties, including the governing liberals. A real possibility of the first green party government in Canada is reason enough to tune our ears to the island. But there is a lot more to today. That is probably a scape. The notice of Canadians beyond the east coast right now, most of us know PI from the beautiful way that it's sold to tourists, and that's lovely. And I wanna go there. But it does seem like we need to know a little bit more. Jordan, heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Trevor corkum is a writer at the walrus and the global mail. He splits his time between Toronto and Prince Edward Island. Trevor how much attention does candidate usually pay to elections in PE. I not very much. I mean, I think most people aren't even aware when there is an election. I wasn't until about two weeks ago. Yeah. Exactly. But this is a nail biter, and it's has a chance to make history. So this is when people wanna watch what's going on there right now. So it's been an interesting landscape the liberals have been in power for twelve years. So since two thousand and seven and traditionally PE, I like a lot of the maritime provinces. But especially in PE, I the elections have alternated between the conservatives and the liberals before twenty fifteen only one other member from one other party had ever been elected in the history of PI elections, and that was one end EP. Member back in the nineties. What's happened is the green party has risen in the pools. And they're now leading so they've come from not quite out of nowhere. But in the last few years, they've really ramped up their popularity and in the last four out of five pools they've been leading the liberals it's a bit of a three way race, but the the greens look like they may be pulling out of the bag. What's going on in PI in general that would lead to this kind of change election because this is unprecedented in Canadian provincial politics? Anyway, it is. Yeah. There been a lot of interesting indicator. So PI people have this idea of PI being a bucolic rural place a place that's a little bit stuck in time. You know, a lot of our the advertising campaigns on the island of really played this. It's kind of a place where you go down home. You go to the beach. You have some good food. Everyone's very friendly. And that's all still true to a certain case. But immigration is one thing that's changed in the last few years. So. The population of PI's always been pretty low. But it's lead the country immigration in the last couple of years, so very robust immigration, which has led to strengthening of the economy. So PI's lead the country in a number of economic indicators GDP growth housing starts. I saw something today in the paper that said housing prices have jumped twenty percent in one year on the island. So you're you're seeing that traditional island also dealing with a lot of big city issues like housing like the economy like this growing inequality between people who can afford, those changes and people who can't. So the green party's been able to capitalize a little bit on some of the unease with specifically the economic situation in the inequality also number of people have moved to buy from other parts of the country. So the province has become a little bit younger than the other provinces in Atlantic Canada. And it's really that youth vote in a way that's open to these new ways of doing things. So. So a large number of people under forty have kind of broken the tradition of voting for either the liberals or the conservatives which for a lot of families have gone back literally hundreds of years, where if you are a certain family, you voted conservative were another family you voted liberal, and that's all just splintering away. Give me an example, because I'm kind of fascinated by what you said about how we perceive PI, thanks to the tourism commercials. Because I know that that is my main source of of images of p give me an example of what you see on the island today that you'd have no idea of. Yeah. I mean, there are a number of things I think if you're in Charlottetown one of the things that strikes you first off is the diversity of the population. So there's people have been moving their from literally all over the world. So the school board, for example, we'll give out notices to parents in multiple languages because of the diversity of the classrooms, and at amazing selection of ethnic restaurants from the Middle East from Asia. South America, Afghanistan, Syria restaurants that you'd expect to finance Ron or Montreal. But not in a city of forty thousand people Charlottetown has two mosques, for example that both been built over the last ten years. So it's an it's actually a very cosmopolitan small city. So those are just a few things you see sort of on the surface. How did the green party come to be leading the polls? Yeah. You know? It's very interesting because the green parties, I think in Canada, especially provincially have this reputation of being a little bit of the fringe party, you know, the party of older hippies and and of peace love and grooving us on. And I think increasingly elsewhere, they straddle a very interesting part of the spectrum where the greens have NPR have been very pragmatic, so they've emphasized fiscal responsibility. So balancing budgets, in addition to growing, social and an environmental programs. So if you look at the population of pediatric. You know, there are a lot of older people. And as I said a lot of growing younger people. So those are kind of the two poles of the population that I think have driven part of this this interest and the green party, I think we're seeing around the country and N P I this splintering of the traditional left right parties. People are looking for new alternatives, and the greens have been able to capitalize on that on ease with the way things of always been done. If we drilled down a bit on as with other maritime provinces very much the case in PI. There's been this real sense of this kind of old boys network or backroom deals being done in things like, you know, who's getting loans that kind of thing there've been a number of big cases in the last ten to fifteen years on scandals with the liberal party that of really disillusioned people with the way things are done. So in general time, they would then just switch their vote to the conservative party. But they conservatives on P, I have really had a tough. Time they've had six liters and six years they really haven't been going anywhere quickly. So the greens have capitalized on that on ease. But have also really tailored their programs to both rural islanders, and then people in the cities as well. Tell me a little bit about the leadership dynamics and play who's the leader of the liberal party, who's the leader of the greens. So the leader of the liberals I mean, in a way, they're they're puller opposite. So the current premier Wade McLaughlin is the former president of UPI he comes from a very well established island family. They're very well known. They've been political family for many years, he inherited the party or didn't inherit the party, but became the leader in twenty fifty and after Robert gives resigned after a scandal in government, and he did win a majority government at that time, but he seen as a little bit aloof two islanders. So he's got that university president energy around him. So people. Say, you know, we really like Wade, but they don't really warm to him. He doesn't have a lot of natural charisma. So for the last three years, the leader of the green party, Peter Bevan Baker has been a foreign head. The preferred choice of of premier for islanders and the support of the green party has kind of incrementally grown based on his own personal leadership. So he was he's someone who I would call an anti politician. He's just suggest an average guy. He's he's an emigrant from Scotland he came into a couple of decades ago. He was a former dentist who bought an old church in rural PE, I converted into cafe had his dental practice on the side. He plays the trumpet. He's a storyteller and people just really warm to him. He's very authentic, and he's the kind of person who you know, you just to stop and chat to on the street. The kind of person who had a fundraising event will be the first one up dancing is. Unafraid to kind of poke fun at himself. So that's something that really appeals to people on the island. How difficult would it be to translate? Some of what the green party has seen NPA I to a national level. I mean, we've talked a lot on this podcast about the the upcoming federal election. And certainly the left is in kind of a state of disarray in general. So there is an opportunity there. How can they take what they've done there and build it? Yeah. It's tricky based on our current electoral system. But I think a couple of kind of lessons that they've learned from their other provincial successes. You know, we know the grants of won their first seat until and Guelleh's. They won three seats and the New Brunswick election. I think the New Brunswick cases interesting because they won in downtown Fredericton writing. So very urban writing they won in the riding around mount Allison university, so small university town, and then they want a very rural northern New Brunswick riding, so. So they were able to appeal both to kind of a very local grassroots kind of rural population. People in rural communities who are worried about jobs and the rural economy, and they were able to appeal to people at universities younger students and then urban people of the urban left. And I think that's a coalition that if I were Elizabeth may I I would wanna try to emulate, and I think we see in the B C election and the seats they won there in the seats that they're targeting at the federal level that it looks like that's that's the formula. They're looking to repeat so really targeting some of the urban writings, especially on the west coast where maybe the end EP is done. Well, traditionally the liberals, but they're flagging a bit. Some of the the more rural ridings that tend to be around left leaning cities or left leaning region. So the country and then pockets were there strong youth populations like around universities. So all that to say is I don't think this if. If the green stew, and it's going to translate in a green victory at the federal level. But you know, we know that in the case of PI New Brunswick winning the first seat, then leads to a couple of seats. And then you know, who knows where it goes. So based on the current splintering and fragmentation across Canada, you know, we don't really know what's going to happen. But we do know that people are open to new ideas. What kind of new ideas are in the platform N P? So as I said, it's a it's an interesting mix because there's a real mix of pragmatism with some very forward thinking idea. So on the forward thinking side they've made a commitment to making the province carbon neutral by twenty forty five so investing in small loans to homes and small businesses for things like solar panels electric vehicles. They've said that they will provide loans to rural small businesses and entrepreneurs to
