"So let's figure this out and get away with it whereas this one again just. She feels like she's again just constantly throwing herself at this man look again and again who has no responser care about her whatsoever and so by the time. That part comes where she's like. Oh you weren't in love with her. It's like oh this is just want to see this like this. He's like pitiful and depressing. I don't like it exactly. And i think that is also in terms of as you're saying the kind of characterization of the second wife is that which i will bring costume design shortly has some thought. It's not a real episode if we don't talk about exhaustively but yeah and it's very much that point. Is that breaking point of the murder. She decides like yeah. I'm going to be his wife. I'm going to support him no matter what we're gonna get out of there and we're going to banish the ghost of rebecca we from us because he didn't love her. This is my house now and and that moment happens in the movie somewhat but also really in the book is that basically she becomes a change person. She has the confidence. she's no longer this kind of awkward girl and now she's like i own this house. Who cares about rebecca. Get her outta here. You know so. it's really important. And you can also see that in terms of clothing in the nineteen forties version. She's wearing very schoolgirl. Girl kind of outfits. He's kind of like shorter. Skirts not sure kind of a schoolgirl like below the knee type bang. It's very like casual for the time. I guess i would say and also a different class than what she's coming to which is really important. Yeah and then as you see in the third actress kind of dressing more like a lady of more gentleman's wife or how he would say and and that's kind of her coming to her own where the what he's the one is does not ally i yeah. I did not care for the clothing in this movie..

"Like. I mean the past few decades. There isn't a lot of gothic romance movies. I would say they would probably like hit their height win. It's like black and white. Because of the drama you can add the shadows. There is an elephant film. Excuse me but you know crimson peak highs while they use a lot of color you see this. It's very dramatic. I kind of i kind of associated with and it's like it's very it needs to be haunting and needs to be like the robots can be involved but it's like no matter whether it's ghosts or the specter of a dead person into this rebecca. It's she's she hots this house. It's a haunted movie but really but it's not a ghost story. And i think that's what i think is interesting about rebecca as a story is that you're following in the footsteps of the first of rebecca and she's just they're like every part of the house she has touched and while you never we'll see this character in the flesh you feel her character in a real way and that's very gothic to be. It's very like goes like it's well. It's the whole thing with gothic. Romance is like everyone is haunted by. Yes as a metaphor you know. Like and that's what the whole thing would other romances. So if you. I think that was what was interesting. I think you know. Obviously the era that the forties rebecca. I think you're right like the air that was made in is lends itself to know certain degree. Because you get to have all these like dramatic camera pushes in on people's faces and like you know all the you know this beautiful orchestral score and like all these things that work really well but as we've seen crimson peak that doesn't mean you can't do that in the market and i think what was interesting to me was. I saw a couple notes towards the end. That i felt were actually like very seventies and they reminded me a little bit of almost suspi our and even say like the most modern remake of spirit which i think is interesting because they do this thing where i mean a the music which is odd. There's this one like female folk song. I guess you'd say interest in the movie a couple of times and i was like this doesn't this feels like a seventies movie now. I don't know what's happening. But then they also use that like super iconic like dario origin. Tow like Gels to cover so there's like these bright blues and reds like over the screen. So interesting i think like this movie unfortunately is like a bit bland overall and so when those moments would come in i was like i wonder what this movie would have been like..

"A gift in someone's name this year If you don't obviously totally also find if you wanna maybe like share Or to with your friends. So how did. Rebecca rebecca with that girl. Why a good place to start is the i know maybe not. Everyone is familiar with rebecca which starts Originally as a book That was adapted into an alfred hitchcock. movie in one thousand nine hundred forty and it is one of alfred hitchcock like most famous films on. It's one was well regarded films. Like i know. He's very famous for psycho vertigo and rear window. But i would say this is some of his earlier work that really resonated with people and i would say is some of his best work and by opinion and the book is also a very classic novel. I read recently. So we'll also be including that as well in this little tidbits era's gonna ask me if real things in the movie versus vote. I would also recommend to read that because it's pretty short but really great book and then we have the twenty twenty adaptation. Which is kind of i would say a weird mix of kind of adapting from the bulk and then also from the one thousand nine hundred forty a film and i would say just about the toronto film. Boo was never going to have a great chance at like a analysis because of how famous alfred hitchcock one is. It's like the shadow of that movie is kind of hard to overcome. I personally watch the twenty twenty one before i watched the nineteen forty one so i have a different perspective but i think sarah thank you. Watch the nineteen forty one i. Yeah i watched it the other way around. So yeah it's real hard once you've seen that version watch another version like even if it was good or wasn't i think yeah. It has big shoes to fill. And so i think we have some thoughts on on the new one. But i also want to keep that in mind like obviously we're also comparing against like a film made by some might say master at filmmaking. So it's hard to exactly. And i think the pride and prejudice like miniseries like while i think they were able to overcome it because they took such a different route. I think rebecca twenty twenty has does not do that sufficiently enough to kind of make a difference where it's like you're just treading in the shadow of this much like. Yeah yeah and i think like i think something i realized because i also like was thinking so much about the other gothic romance movies that we have talked about reality such as crimson peak and i would say twilight which i would say the book more because i actually saw a lot of parallels between twilight and this movie and so weird ways i definitely want to talk about. You know i think the thing. I realized it's like if you're going to gothic romance. You had better know what movie or making like you know. I think that was a huge issue with this modern remake where you know so many parts of it feel a someone's instagram or feels like a lot of it. It's very like curated in not in a good way It's really interesting. It's very modern very kind of just like fill me and like i don't know there's we'll get into it. I think in more detail. But yeah i wanna talk about like gothic romance. Like as your honor. I so i think this might give people a good frame of mind. Is that you know. I would generally associated with a lot of drama like i crimson peak. If we're talking about a more recent version. Like i would say in.

Ground project This is something where the people in washington are currently located in a su-nam zone And yes these are the same the same nation from twilight But they are also real people in the real world and they actually need help right now so This is really important because they actually have a quote tribal school which is located in this zone. It's the only one in the world that teaches the language and culture so if there were to ever be a nominee or any kind of emergency like this entire community would be lost essentially so If you want to donate you can go to their website.

"I think that's one of the hardest parts of the course, because you're the further the furthest out your the longest stretch between rest stops. and the road is is quite bumpy can be quite windy but it's also in my opinion, the most beautiful part of the chorus in you really are rewarded with these stunning views of the mountains, so I try to get people to look up if they can there. And then you have the long journey home you know at that point when you finish copper basin, you still got. Thirty Miles to get to get back to catch him and you know. There is a very. Headwind that happens every day. you will ever headwind going home from Private Idaho it's just how it is. The slower you are, the stronger your headwind be so it's motivation to get yourself back up in over a been over trail creek your last rest stop and then one of the most beautiful, the sense in the world over the climbed. You came up in the morning. is back into. Catch him. DOWN THE TRAIL CREEK A. Hill climb and and back to the Wood River valley. It's pretty special. I mean I I train on that hill all the time because it's really nice, awesome grade of a hill I'm never used to see anybody like doing intervals riding up and down that hill, and what's cool now is I. See people all the time just out there and. It's it's pretty awesome. And for those you haven't been to Idaho I encourage you to go on Rebecca site the Rebecca Private Idaho site and check out some of the images. Spectacular alum it. It's pretty special, and that's the point you know. We ride our bikes to challenge ourselves, and I'm all about being competitive in pushing myself and going hard, but we also ride our bikes to be with. And then to be in a beautiful place, and it really is you know. People, place and purpose you know those are kind of the things that that drive me for Private Idaho is the people that get to come here and be part of it and share the special place that I live, and then the purpose, which is you know as we talked about little bit about the be good foundation helping other people ride bikes. We talked about how you can pop in. You can do just the Sunday event, but you've. You've created this whole kind of four day ride experience sir. If you're signing up for the whole, Shebang know we do a writer meeting on Wednesday, but tell us about. Thursday Friday and Saturday. Yeah, so Thursdays course in I will say this stage race at this point the Queen Stage rates, it is sold out because it's only my permit only allows two hundred fifty people, and so it's a much smaller offering as I can expand that I will, and so for those of you who are bummed. You're not in the stage race. I do have on on Saturday. There's a ride on Thursday. We do a a night. Friday, we do at night ride. That is a where dark sky preserve and we're also. We have some history with Ernest Hemingway here. Who lived here? He wrote here and eventually took his life here and so we do a dark sky reserve, hemingway ride to some of his haunts like his grave and the Hemingway Memorial. Read some poetry so even if you're not in the stage race, I do try to put in a whole bunch of rides that are. Are Open to anybody so that if you come here for a few days, you have something to do with us and there's the parade.

"Queen Stage race, which is a three day grabble stage race that takes place over four days, and really what I found is Ketchum, Idaho Sun Valley Idaho where I live, my hometown is where the takes place, and it is off the beaten path. It's the reason I called it Rebecca's private Idaho because it is quiet and and intimate here and It's a small town and it's hard to get to, and that's why it put it on Labor Day weekend one is. Is. It's a beautiful time of the year here, but also to allow people that extra holiday to travel. Because once you get here. What I find is people. Don't come for one day. They come here and they WANNA stay a few extra days, and they WANNA explore a little bit more. And that's why, after about the fifth year of Private Idaho, I launched the stage race because people cast me all this year. We're GONNA come. We're going to stay a few more days. Where can I ride? Where can I ride next and so I decided to just put that platter out for everybody to select from in. You know and there's a big parade that we can, and my goal was was not just a host a bike event, but to release show people this special place to support my community to support bike charities, and eventually my foundation that I launched and so and also I. Want my friends to stay a little longer you know. We've all been to those bike races. Where you drive in your car. You got your gear, you you know, unload, get dressed right at the back your car. Go do the race. Load up your car and go home. I didn't want that kind of experience I wanted. A bigger sort of by end of the season bike celebration, and that's that's it has grown to become.

"Rebecca's private Idaho is about and so. Was I got involved as an athlete because my job. Required it by, it really did spawn this whole. New facet of my riding in my career? That opened a lot of doors for me. There's places in my hometown. I've never ridden so I started exploring for a course for private Idaho I was just like. Wow I've never been here I've never been here in Idaho has a lot of dirt road, so it's It's been a really fun. Multi experience for me and I never could have imagined that. That I launched was a really big event. We're going into year eight now. and I did not expect even anyone would come or that. You Know I. was on the Front of this sort of gravel. Explosion I have no idea I was just presenting. What seemed cool to me in a style of writing? That seemed fun for me and little did I know what's going to eight years later be? Really, kind of blowing up in the cycling world, yeah, one of the things in one of the reasons I was excited to talk to you today as I share a mountain bike, passion and a mountain bike, background and I think. Short of anecdotally it seems like a lot of people get drawn into gravel from the road side of the market, not necessarily the mountain bike mountain bikers. We've all ridden those sections and experience those high fives like why would ever want to go on the road? Right would ever want to ride gravel like mountain. biking is so fun, but as you noted there's there's something different about the gravel bike, and it's not take anything away from our shared continued love of the mountain bike, but the idea that you can explore a little bit further than your normal mountain bike loop, and you can forgive yourself the notion. Notion like Oh, I might just ride on a road for a little while to get somewhere. I definitely found myself getting out the Marin county map, trail map and sort of just tracing out places..

"US I could easily spent the entire hour speaking to Rebecca about her accolades as an endurance athlete, but what we really wanted to focus on was her marquee event. Rebecca's private Idaho RPI is a perennial favorite that's held in September in Idaho and showcases Rebecca's favourite trails in her neck of the woods. I got super excited. Hearing about the event given Rebecca's background as a mountain biker in adventure cyclist, she's put together a course that will test both your technical skills and choice of equipment. I love that kind of adventure in my events. We recorded this episode in the early days of the pandemic. Quite clear if the event will come off this September, although we remain optimistic that it will happen, and if you've got one of the coveted spots, not to worry as the team over there has a covid nineteen registration policy that's pretty liberal in terms of getting a refund making registration, a donation or pushing if the event needs to be postponed beyond just showcasing her hometown gravel Rebecca, wanted to set up an event that did some good and supported her nonprofit, the good foundation with the COVID nineteen crisis in effect right now. She was also quite concerned that her biggest fundraising opportunity of the year was going to be shut down, so she went out and typical Rebecca. Fashion and And did something about it Rebecca over Memorial Day weekend created the Giddy up challenge. The event allowed riders to create their own challenges in their own neck of the woods, largely revolving around a big climbing day with four courses, culminating in ever sting, which is climbing over twenty nine thousand feet in one attempt over nine hundred riders from around the world, raised a combined one hundred ten thousand dollars for the be good foundation in their own climbing adventures, not only did. Rebecca inspire some amazing fundraising results. She also inspired a resurgence in ever sting. It's quite easy to say we saw more. People attempt to ever sting this weekend than ever before with Katie Hall even setting a new. Record down near Bonny Doon California and of course Rebecca did an Everest attempt herself and successfully finished. It was quite amazing. Watching this unfold on her instagram account and courage you to go back and look at some of the stories as it's incredible how one has to turn themselves inside out and ride overnight in order to achieve twenty nine thousand feet of climbing I myself the little baby, one of fifty two hundred feet, and it was pretty amazing I. Did it all off road on my favorite climb up to east peak of Mount, Tam, and learned a lot I can't even imagine doing four times. The amount of climbing I did in a day. There would definitely be some logistics..

You know how things feel like a year when when maybe maybe it was two weeks I don't know But it must have been well because when I found it again it had been lying upside down and the sun had faded its belly it was a black rabbit and now it had this light grey belly when I turned it over and it was the first time time I ever realized that things could change without me and and it wasn't that it was worse or better. It was just different and I wasn't there to see that happen and I never really forgot it and I and I also felt bad that I had been so careless. I thought I cared so much about this toy and I hadn't even realized that it was gone and I wrote a song about it. Called everything stays for adventure time and then as we were working on the movie. It slowly really dawned on me that I was writing about it again about this. This person leaving toy in the garden and do something about that just really stuck with me. I think it was a turning point as a kid where where I had my first existential crisis but I think I also realized that I could. I could make a mistake a bad mistake that I could leave something behind in that way. I think I realized is. Is there a point. Where your child where you realize that your childish that must click at some point? I know it really must have rattled me because I keep talking about in my stories. Do you feel like you have to do a lot of work to access those feelings that you had in those memories or do you feel like they're particularly present in you. I don't know no I. I think more often than not I tend to write about what I'm going through at the moment and then try to find some way to to connect that with the past if I can. A lot of the show was an interesting process because it started out with me writing about my childhood with my brother Stephen. My younger brother other and I wanted it to be about about this formative time when I was just becoming a teenager. And he wasn't quite there yet he was younger and I was. I was becoming this role model and I wanted to be a good role model and Stephen in. The gems are all based off some aspect of fat. But Stephen was with me on the show. He's our lead background designer. So as a show is becoming more and more difficult and I was buckling a little under a lot of that pressure. Sure he was there for me in real time and the story ends up reflecting that a lot is the gems. Start to unravel and Stephen steps up to be there for them. That was very much what was happening at that moment. Not necessarily what had happened although that also happened when we were that age You know being a teenager was a little tough on me. And he was such a reliable source of positivity and if I was ever having a bad day he'd just throw on a video video game that he knew I liked and I could always count on him and it just stayed true the past the present the future. What kinds of things about about teenager Damore particularly difficult? Oh Gosh let's see what a question I think. I had not a bit of a rough time as a by teenager because I knew right from the start I knew it was going on but when I would try to talk about it people would with people shut me down pretty quick and that became very confusing. I got a lot of bad advice. That just kept living in me really until my late. Twenty s Things like Oh you know. We'll we'll mainly like who cares serenely like the rules which I was like. Yeah I guess yeah I guess who cares and at that point I I think I internalized. I would stop caring about my own feelings because I was just like well who who cares really absorb that which I think was people's way of saying I don't mind you know at the time but it wasn't particularly helpful and then people saying well you'll figure it out when you end up with someone which which made me pretty confused because I felt like I needed a relationship to tell me who I was and I think i. I've made decisions that would have. I would have made better decisions if I had trusted myself. I learned I think from that to not trust myself because I thought that that this made sense and hearing from everyone around me that it didn't made me pretty unsure of my own ability to make sense of anything anything more with Rebecca sugar after a short break.

I'm Jesse Thorn. My guest. Rebecca sugar created the Cartoon Network Series Steven Universe I. The show has been turned into a feature film which came out earlier this year and the latest chapter in the Steven Universe series is called Steven Universe Future. It's airing now on cartoon network. I think is pretty unusual. That Steven Universe is a story. That is about a boy whose you know. Main role models and protectors and family members. These are all Present as women basically a gems are this slick. They're like a space people aliens WHO WOULDN'T BE FEMALE Gender Dan on their home planet but on Earth they present as women and they're perceived as And that those are not mother's Like I that feels really unusual insignificant to me like it's there. Aren't that many stories about that kind of thing. And like I like. You're an older sister and had a relationship that was not maternal but was protective of your little brother. But like did you think about Oh anywhere else where that kind of story existed. No I wanted it. I wanted that visual and and I think it says a lot that you never see just an image or an aspirational story about a young boy looking up to looking up to women you know even as someone who I was was about to be running a television show I mean how do you how do you navigate a world where no no young boy has ever seen an image edge where the correct thing to do is to just listen to what a woman has said. That's when you see that zero times Uh Not that it's zero times but it's it's rare in what you what you get a lot of our boys hanging out with each other and influence points each influencing each other and and looking up to two men which I'm there's so so so many men that I look up to certainly nothing wrong with looking to men but I think it would do a lot of good to just put the idea out there that taking direction from a woman is a sign of strength and Taking and taking direction from nine non binary person who people perceive as a woman as a sign of strength. That would be great. That would be great. I I would like for and I think that as someone who's been leading a team I feel like we're also strong together. I don't see why that can't be something that's out in the world. I mean I think that there have. There's been a lot of progress in the time since I was a kid. You know in the last thirty years or so. So in terms of having feminist messages and children's entertainment but those feminist messages are almost always coming from women two girls.

A lot of things people hadn't really seen before especially in terms of corporate corporate governance things and the founders relationship with his company and at the same time we work is preparing for roadshow leading up to its i._p._o. And that is a fluid fluid situation but what can you tell us about what we know. Now what we know is that it's very fluid it could start as soon as next week or they could keep on talking to investors astor's. There's a sense that maybe if they had a little more time educating investors about the business that could go in october and they could get a better reception on the other hand. Some people just say let's just go now. It's when can get better another option. They were adam newman flu tokyo last week we understand and met with one of the his biggest investors softbank and they discussed whether software would come in and put a lot of money into the i._p._o.

Pickle activity or is it. Just the fact that it's misconduct seem so widespread well. I think the main thing is that the misconduct is widespread and that it appears to have gone on for a very a long period of time. I think this is one of the things that's puzzling public officials now who are trying to figure out what to do with the company might mean. It's one thing if the company says well yeah we have problems and we'll fix them and it fixes them but the problem with p._g._a. Is that in many instances. It promises to do things that it never does. I mean one of the things we've seen a longstanding problem with is inspecting different kinds of inspections of its system and this is obviously extremely family important for safety but sometimes it has people do these inspections who aren't qualified to do them at other times. It's records are not reliable and may even have been falsified so this is it all boils down to a big problem of trust for the public and for public officials talk talk about the falsifying of records at p._g.

"How would you wait. Where the league has. Has landed. They have to twenty years. You mentioned the sellout crowds? I did the games I was. I was Rebecca Lobo before Rebecca. Lobo. I did the game. I didn't do it. I didn't do it as I didn't do it as eloquently as you do it. I got myself in trouble a lot by saints and things. And I would say things just to be funny and Tim Corrigan our producer would be shouting in my ear, shut the hell up. Nobody wants to hear about where you had dinner. And I thought, why if I tell tells everybody where he had dinner. Or I would complain about something. I don't know. So you do it a lot better than I did, but now that you're doing these games and you think back. So for people that didn't see the games back then and our WNBA fans. Now, what's the biggest difference. The biggest difference is the level of place so much better now because remember the first two years of the WNBA there was also the other professional league that played in the wintertime, and that was the AP l. and they got a lot of the top talent. And so the talent was split those first couple of years of the league and and not consolidated in one place and you know, and I want, you know, the WNBA started with eighteen at one point. It got up to sixteen teams. Now it's it's been settled at twelve teams for for quite a few years. The level of play on the court phenomenal this year is the best best we've had in the history of the league in terms of the competitive edge from teams won twelve previous two years. We, we had great seasons. The the LA sparks from the Minnesota lynx where the top teams from the first week of the season on and then they matched up in the playoffs. This year, there hasn't been that separation of one or two teams out of kinda run away with it. Whereabouts embark on. On our playoffs and a couple of weeks on August pointy, I, I believe is the first playoff they, but the the the competition night in night out the level of skill on the four night in night out is the best it's ever been. It's really, really been a fun season to cover. And having said that. The. How's how healthy is the league in terms of attendance and. Being able to whatever the next step is, which after twenty years, no women's professional league is ever lasted this long and to be still going strong. What's the next step if you were, if you were given the title czar of the WNBA, what what is the next few steps that that you could envision the league taking. Why I still this season that there's been a bit of a groundswell. And I think that the league is on the brink. I don't know how long know how big that break is. I don't know if it's within a year or five years, but it's the first time for me is felt like a WNBA at a place where a broader cultural cultural way, feeling like it's cool to be a fan of it..
