"Of the other characters who have to kind of figure out there. 'cause i i mean he's so iconic he kind of He takes a lot of the oxygen in the room so to speak. You know so to have your character kind of figure out where they fit in relationship to him is helpful. And i think luke's character bat wing. I think he'll have the same kind of thing and figuring out where he fits to look for my batman. Bad blood podcast coming this monday. And they'll be some youtube videos and definitely check out batman bad blood on dvd. I've waited awhile for this. One february is almost here and the walking dead returns. Showrunner scott the impo comment on the walking dead family led by rick grimes and company and how they become adapt at surviving. A big thing for these characters of we've seen the remarkable things they can do which is namely the they can survive. I mean i think one of the biggest moments of the season last year to a moment. There is in episode ten actually in the barn. There's this huge storm. We see all of them holding back. the only person who wasn't doing judith and i know she wanted to But seeing them hold back storm and the walkers outside and all that to me that was just completely symbolic of who. These people are that in doing this together. They can survive and we've now established they survive and they're in a place where they can keep surviving the walls and all this stuff. What do they do. What do they do with that power because they have a power that a lot of people don't have in this in this world that we're adding the walking dead. What are they going to do with it. That's a big part of the season. And also from those round tables and san diego. Comic con here is daryl. Dixon alter-ego numbered rita's scott. Kimbler recently announced that his character of daryl. We'll be getting more airtime in the second part of the season fans kinda thought he got raw deal here. The actor talks about his character's relationship with eric. It's more actions than words with darrell. And that guy came through everything he said and he was a legit guy and the outsider thing that a lot of that was was said he always think your problems are worse than everyone else's you know so i'm sure it was the actions more than than him explaining how he's an outside or gay or whatever leave me but he was stand up by the whole time any me spaghetti you know. Darryl values is time and he's He listens more than he talks. Norman probably talks more than listens. But who i admire him admired. Look for the walking dead. This february i'll have more as we get closer. And that's time capsule episode to twenty two and we'll see you all next week. Take care as always. Thanks for listening.

"For user of rise find the eight. This is Rick Jaffa writer and producer of rise of the plan of the. And you're listening to you sci-fi. Probably. One of the summer's biggest hits came out this month and that is guardians of the galaxy. So the next few shows will kind of look at that a little bit and I up is Chris Pratt on his character of Peter Quilt. Peter Quill is when we first meet him, he's a nine year old kid watching his mother die of cancer. He's a kid who? has kind of been told so light that he needs to toughen up because he's got a big heart and. He, his mother asked him. You know he never knew his father and his mother asked him. Take her hand before she's she's dying and he he just doesn't do it. And then. Immediately, after he's like sucked away into space. And raised by John Do, and so who also tells toughened up and and so he's been living whole life trying to pretend like he's tougher than he is in like he's he's sort of stunted at that at that moment of when his mother asked him to take his hands a kid at heart you know. Anybody gets free rein gets to do whatever he wants in space. He says ship he gets to eat whatever candy he wants to get. To know rules you know and and. So he enjoys that but it there's something missing in his life Fini he misses his family and he misses community and. and. So He's a guy who's traveling through space getting getting to do whatever he wants. and. That's where he starts talented Bradley, Cooper, voices, rocket raccoon it's a little different flavor. There's a lot of humor in this one and a lot of heart I mean it's really very sort of you know sort of an in some odd way kitchen sink drama, not drama but relationship story you know all the relationships are very clear and emotional and the stakes are obviously high and you know with the flavor of, of James, gone has sort of comedic appeal to it from doctor who is Karen Gillian and she plays Nebula in gardens I love my character. So Much Nebula is so interesting to me, I, mean she's first of all a deadly assassin, which is just the coolest. And she has this really interesting relationship with good. Maura they're adopted sisters, daughters, of Thanos, and. They kind of have the sibling rivalry going on gets really intense and the kind of communicate quite physically, which has been interesting to play with and. Basically go Maura her sister kind of goes over to the site and Nebula definitely stays with dark side. Benicio del Toro plays the collector who showed up at the end of a recent marvel movie. It was. Very. COOL TO GET LIKE A. Phone call to play a character. The way he described it was very cool I didn't know anything about that character but And then I got a chance to read the script. And the script was. Very. Simple but very. Colorful and and. I immediately gravitated to it. Felt. Like this really cool story. Kevin. Fi is the executive producer and studio head for Marvel I think guardians is is one of the best ensembles for first movie for an origin move that we've ever had because it's so eclectic and we didn't we didn't set out to say we want an unknown for the lead we WanNa, movie star for the voice Evolved like that again, because we have the freedom to say, anyth- anybody is on the table recently I had a special on strain and from that special election year the roundtable session with executive producer Carlton Cues. He describes his attraction to the project fact that it's verse, the Vampire Genre the fact that you know I think we you didn't mention twilight or you know. But I mean I think we've had enough of the romantic brooding vampire you know the idea of. kind of upending the genre and returning to the roots of Vampires is scary. Parasitic evil creatures was really exciting to me and I sort of felt like that story idea in concert with guarumos ability to create creatures and I guess my own confidence in the ability to turn this into a really good TV's story. Those were the elements like it was working in my head and I'm like, okay I know how to tell this story and I knew that I had There was a great premise in the book and then I had Guillermo who was the crab incredible visuals to collaborate on I think those elements all were the things kind of came together that made me say, yes, this is something that I wanted. To do he addresses the approach of mixing science fiction in Har in the strain well, first of all, I, think you know my particular interest as a storyteller is in sort of cross on storytelling I shot great adventures. Brisk Kennedy Junior was a western with science fiction elements. I. Think I've lost as being an adventure show with science fiction elements and you know I think that the Cross Donald elements of the strain were really exciting to me and what what I thought would be very effective would be to sort of start. This isn't Story that that was our greatest fear like most people aren't really afraid of vampires like it seems abstract but Ralph raid viruses, we're all afraid of epidemics and so using our sort of innate fear of damage as a way to. Lead to vampires felt like a really good path narrative lay so. We. Start. With, academia. We get into we get into, you know much more sort of humans vs Vampires, but it's at the point at which I think we've hopefully overcome the characters will have overcome their scepticism and hopefully the audience will have overcome their scepticism about. Creatures that shoot six foot tongues out of their mouth and latch onto you drink you like a Capri Sun. This has been A. Novel graphic novel now, a television show. were. Some of the challenges in developing has a series for. To Toro and also Chuck Holding Store I will say this you know chuck works with me as a writer on the show and has been extremely open about an as has guillermo about sort of you know you've got gotta make it your own and you have to use the stuff in the book that's great and and come up with other stuff as necessary and we've really done that you know I think myself and the other writers have worked very hard to take the basic essence of the story, but to really just do our own version of it for. You know for television and when you see the series in totality, there's a ton of stuff that's added and embellished and you know like Richard Samo plays a character. May Mike Forest composite of two characters in the book it doesn't feature very much in the first book, but he's hugely significant in the first year of the show You, know Jim Carrey's character has a very different arc in these in the first season to show that he in the books you know there's a there's a lot more to APPs character and life and world in the show than there is in the books I. There's in many ways you know we've just. Sort of use the books as a jumping off point and I've tried to kind of form a series out of it that I think is just engaging terms without being. A rigorous slave to the underlying material and and checking Garam been fully on board of that. There's more to the Har- aspect and he tells us what one inspiration for the strain was fx I think did a brilliant job of marketing the show and they sold it on the horror access but I think there's a lot more show than horror and I I. Myself Am not a hardcore Hor guy and I'm not a fan of like sort of torture porn horror and I'm I'm a big fan of Steven King type horror so. Probably my favorite book is the stand which is thousand plus page book about a high concept ideas not dissimilar to the strain. The world is overrun by strain of superfluid as opposed to vampirism, but it's really for thousand pages about these characters and and their stories. They try to navigate a world that's been up ended by something crazy and.

We will be spoiling plot points on this one later in the in the review. But you, I will give you the the official spoiler warning at that time. This episode we are not alone Jake. We are joined by June. Welcome Joan High and so excited about this. The is absolutely not only do we have June, but we're also joined. By the gentle giant Michael Winkler. CK. Hey. Guys. That did I. Am Fair. She did I make you. Flash. Fatty. I. Always blushes. You are. Ready, you all the time. Yeah. Yeah.

Amazon that Shit Man I'll send it to you. All right. So we will be getting into spoilers I'll give you the morning synapses through this one when the emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the imperial army to defend the country from the invaders. Who Move on the eldest daughter is that? WHO Did I say that, right? That's wha what. Wa Malign I knew I said it wrong when I said it, that's why I said it. Right. You corrected me.

Jaffa the made a silver Lauren hynick and Elizabeth Martin. And Yeah this one's supposed to be a theatrical release. I am said that it was not. Kind of like a bill and Ted kind of thing where. We were given the option and I. I talked to a theater owner and other theatre owners are very pissed off at Disney right now for this decision. I'm sure that's up. There's lots. Of Destroying Mouila on merchandise seen a few videos of theatre owners like destroying the like the cardboard advertisements posters, the posters and stuff I mean, that's a lot of cash that they're missing out on. It's a lot of cash they're missing out. Disney usually takes a little bit more of a of a cut though. Than, the theatre owners in narrow releases as opposed to other studios. But still they know that they're gonNA it's Disney's they know that a lot of people are gonNA show up to watch this one and. We'll discuss them rate this one before we get into full spoilers but. I really feel like this movie would have benefited from theatrical release for at least for me. It would have an actually so mean the thirty dollars price point. So and when they announced, they were going to release this on Disney plus then be paying. You'd actually have to get the premium access you're paying thirty bucks for the movie. I had this plan in my head. So we just moved to a new apartment complex. One of the amenities is a home movie theater like he can go in and you can watch DVD's. projector like a big screen. And it's really cool because they do have like four rows of like the ater seats like it is a little bit. So I was like Oh shit I'm you can plug your computer in to the projector. So like I had this plan for weeks I'm like, yes, this is what I'm going to get my computer. I'm going to buy three dollars, but I'm going to have a somewhat theater experience. I'm going to go use this nice little mini from my apartment complex and I spent an hour last night in there could not get it just could not get it to work I was so disappointed. And I just ended up after an hour of fiddling with the equipment in there I just said fuck it. I just came to my apartment, but I was so looking forward to like the guy had popcorn popped like I was all excited I was getting ready I'd be like, Oh, I got to sit in this. Town of Mini Theater and watch this movie on a big screen and. Happen. That sucks yeah. I would've loved a my my. My brother-in-law and built like a home theater and stuff like that. I would. I should've asked him you watch it there but I didn't that would have been out of in fucking credible but we are going to be jumping into our non spoiler thoughts and then ratings on this one and I'll start with. Our rating system. If you're not familiar, the rating system is simple if the leftovers don't like something, they toss it. If they do like something they suggest you tasted and if it's brilliant gets a tupperware rating if all the leftovers it, then it gets to the pinnacle of success a Tupperware Party. All right start with Michael Winkler you watch this one today. What did you think about move.

"Toys on. This rock s o'bannon creator of alienated and Farscape Commander Silver Writer producer of rise the plan. Rick Jaffa writer and producer rise of the planet the. And you're listening to Saifi Talk. Hi Welcome to another edition this week spotlight kind of goes a little differently it's going to have some highlights of my coverage of the TRIBECA. Film Festival that just concluding this weekend? Has some two of my red carpet interviews to start things off. We have Lindsey mckean who stars in the film indigenous which played at the festival and also appears as Tessa on the television series supernatural she plays Steph who long with their fellow vacationers get stuck in the jungles of Panama being chased by a chew. Kabre. But before you laugh, the film is actually done straight treating it as the legendary latin-american creature that it is. Let's hear now from Lizzy mckean and my conversation on the red carpet. Yes, Linzie. Well you know with. What like about movies? Like this is when the director gives you guys room to play with your characters a little bit. You're not tied to every Carolina dialogue and stuff like that, and you know it really helps with conditions you're working then. I mean I know he would probably guide you during the scene, but you could you pretty much. Did you let it all go as far as what she was going to say and do and then kind of work with him to set it down a little bit. Yeah. I think a lot of he allowed us to be very loose with and I like to stick to the script and the character as my guideline and do as much work on her as a human being, as I can and then hopefully get there and be able to throw it all away and have organic moments come about and may get a director that trusts you to do that. that's the best kind of direct turns. The conditions weren't the best at times I mean, there's if. You're in a jungle so it's not a set. So there's injuries and things like that. So how did you all guard again against something like that? I think it will nature helped us. Not, case because it could have turned out a lot worse than it didn't even turn out and there could have been a lot of things to go wrong and I think when you know. You work with producers and he worked with directors and work with actors where there is something this movie that means so much to them and it's their first big project. It puts so much back in so much faith in it and we all believed in it so much that I think naturally. Nature sort of rises up to meet you and says, okay, we'll take care of you and you won't die. Now were you guys close to civilization or were you really out there? I mean we were always fairly close to civilization, but the jungle jungle was really the middle of the jungle and there were really dead deadly aunts and deadly trees and potholes to Paul and snakes and monkeys and etcetera etcetera etcetera. So they it was real and we had a lot of elements to work with an ad and throw into our acting, which is so phenomenal. What I like to is that you know you see Trooper Cabras done almost comically and some other films you guys played it straight you know and and it's because it's actually in the Latin world. It's actually a it's like a bigfoot legend it's actually almost respected and fear. So I'd like that well, and you know in those folklore's, he's such a small animal is a. Dog Walking for legs we read is. In ours I mean ours is much more menacing. He's more eubeus. So almost human being with impossible strength and treaded teeth and now. Really, really awful things that you would not want to come in contact with. Dr Jungle and your reaction the first time you saw. Really. pleasantly. surprised. You never know how they're gonNA turn out you just never do. And this one turned out really well, I'm really proud and I think that I think allister's editing put a lot to do with it and I think the cast and the bonding that we all had together over those five weeks had a huge a huge impact because you know the characters get Kinda cliche and those kind of movies and you really WanNa. You know it sounds like you all worked hard to avoid that as much as you could we did and I think when you connect on a human level and you you break those boundaries and you're not just playing a stereotype anymore playing a human being. What's up for you next? will he just didn't have a supernatural great show? Last year. Disguise. You know their family manages just fight demons but they're not. Yes, exactly. Well, that's coming out on May thirteen, and then I have another film comedy called flock of Dudes that's coming out and a short film. That's a comedy that got into can. Super Exciting. Yeah. How many episodes you think you'll be on supernatural I don't know I can't say they are going in for their tenth season it's A. Little. Show that always that never quits just just when you bury it comes back to life. It's great. I've actually known each other probably for fifteen years and you know once every two years go back on the show and he's like whether you like it or not you come back. Eventually never thought we'd be here. It was like ten years later now. We were asking comecon last year about that. They never die and they were like you know they always seem to get up that hill. It's it's. It's it's a great show. It's the boys. That's really what keeps it going. It's there's a family aspect that those shows usually don't have. And you comb a separate that into its own. subplot it's so strong. So. Those boys have together. The ease the care I mean they have that in real life. So yes. It shows on the screen. Well, we look forward to seeing you in that and many other things and in this to great, it's great to meet here. Too There's more SCI FI talk. So stay tuned. Back on Fi talk I'm Tony Tomato the film's director was allaster or but he was not able to attend but I did have a chance to talk to this dynamic cast. Up Next I attended the red carpet for film called honeymoon where a young couple's relationship crumbles due to the events that change one of them. The film stars a game of Thrones Rose Leslie and the upcoming Penny. Dreadful. Paul Treadway as the couple I spoke to Paul on the red carpet at the TRIBECA. Film Festival for Hueneme. What's interesting is this is about the deconstruction during a honeymoon relationship brandon. And you you hadn't met. Before. So how did you guys? You know it? Can we actually met? We've met briefly went to drama school. The same choosier below May, but we sort of didn't have much Davidson, we met briefly. and just luckily she's one of. One. Of the most wonderful people you're never gonNA make so she's so talented. So one like such A. Pass that it was a pleasure to wherever. I can evolve for better lives to. was to not have the. and. You had the you had to do something that you're not used to is driving on the other side of the road for the she's of anyone that tries it. Turns out yeah parliament. We. Would've shadowed johnny but by the time we watch how the. Shifted his time she should have done.

I'll be on the red carpet for several genre films plus also be covering the second annual. Bombay Sapphire. Imagination awards. I spoke to one of the judges last year Oscar winner Geoffrey Fletcher. The only had a greater number of entries this year The quality. Is. there. Last year I. Think we had thirty three. Countries. Submit in this year sixty, eight. Well. and. We have some other numbers individual numbers that we can get to you. But We. Are. Shocked some some of the places people take this. Very. Minimal script, which is designed for people to take it where they will invest themselves in it. It's shocking. They'll start somewhere really far out. Rian back around and tie all up so that it makes sense and actually resonates with you. It isn't just some wilder clever scenario. There's humanity in it. Which I think? I think ultimately is the key we are always looking for. imaginative inspired. soulful, daring human. voices and. Visions. You know it was also very important to us that. To look for things that weren't necessarily. The, most polished or familiar, but. Where you could? See An. Inspired individual exploring. You can hear my interviews from the TRIBECA film festival at also be Bombay Sapphire imagination winners 2013, there's more Sifi talk. So stick with it. Spotlight and rightly Soda Shine, a spotlight on warehouse thirteen, which will end it Sifi run with five more episodes. I had a chance along with other reporters to speak to stars saw Ruben Eric and Aaron Ashmore Gentlemen. What a pleasure talking to you? Is it common kind of talk to you man, where are you? I'm in new. York City actually. Oh What the television episode to say was hysterical. My mother watches them to this day. So it really hit home for me. was really cool As far as what's left for the season are going to be going to be a mix of light or happy episodes or and a light and darker episodes That are coming up any kind of tease us a little bit as to what kind of direction is going to happen the rest of the episodes. Like most of. The show and and I think what makes the show great is that there's a little bit of all of that. In every episode I mean humor is always there. There's definitely some. You know some things in bureau resolve amongst the characters Particularly some things with Claudia and her sister and. and already hardy involvement with that. So I mean that's a little bit heavier dealing with all that stuff, but there's always is always the humor. There's always liked each even and funny, even the most serious situation. So. I think. They're all of that. You know what I mean and I think that there's a lot of. You know there's a lot of weight in these last episode because we're arriving, we're wrapping up the show but. Being cited always fun. Yeah I I think. I can echo that we we started off knowing that we were finishing a lot of people doing series. Don't have the luxury of that. They're cut off at the knees or fans. by whatever financial ratings reasons. People now and FI. network hot, really hard for us to be able to have. A proper closing I know that Mark Stern. really hard. Crust.

"Of Rise, the gate whose Rick Jaffa writer and producer rise of the land of the. and. You're listening to fight all. This week marks the end of the series on sci-fi, and perhaps the beginning of an end of an era is they will join warehouse thirteen will also complete their run on the channel as well. I'm talking about being human the season will finish its fourth and final year with their goats and neighborhood part three. At last year's roundtables at San Diego Comic, Con Show Runner Ana Frikkie told us how they kept up with the fans. A fair amount just what we hear from people and certainly the cast from coming to the cons and really interacting with people. We hear you know what people want, which is not to say that we make decisions based on that but sometimes, we are really passionate about something and we know that the fans are really passionate about something. We know that that is a good way to go. You know we're not GonNa make decisions that everyone across the board is going to love it is it is interesting to see. Especially as we've had increasing contact with the fans, you know doing the live tweeting during the episode's things like that. It's it's really interesting to see what they what they care about and what they don't, and some things will get really invested. No one really is thinking about as much as we are, but it affects us a fair amount in that we see what people are responding to. That encourages us to keep on going down there and I think fans respond to. Also what the writers enjoy doing the most which is. The characters together you know then being funny than. You, know them having solving problems together and just those that balance dark and light. We like to do the best in senior like that's Made Wrath who was sally recalled her favourite episodes one of my favorites was in season to dream reaper like when sally goes into the alternate reality. As a really special episode for for all of us and you know I really really loved all of last season. I liked. Episode Eleven and twelve was kind of fun to shoot when we go into the portal. That was a movie. Yeah I. Really last season was my favorite season but that was really cool because last season I got to experience so much So many different things that I've had so far like I got to work so much with prosthetic makeup and more visuals effects in different ways and It was really fun I got really experiment out. You know we're we're talking a lot about destiny and whatever was meant to be it was meant to be and. Finding that. Were definitely stronger together, and when you look back every time we've been separated all we've been trying to do is get back to each other, and that's really all we want at the end of the day Sam Woodward talked about the shooting pace of the series. I remember with our British counterparts, we started talking about you know they have the biggest budget in the world not true. We have. If. You don't get it in two or three takes you don't get it. That's how I mean you know and and a lot of times. For example, I remember doing the the nineteen thirty stuff and season two and half of the takes that you see of my character with a Pencil Moustache. At one take which is a very. Uncomfortable position for an accident being when he's creating a new version of the character. But that's just simply the reality of making the show. We have too much to shoot. So you need the actress to be on their toes and you the crew on. and. So we have a pretty. Sharp machine sharp machine. It's machine called the knife. No don't know. It's IT'S A it's a well machine over there as far as its efficiency. But not necessarily giving the most time to do any number of things so. We just hope we get something worth putting on TV, in two or three texts you're not really gonNA miss this one. It was a dynamic group of actors and the writing was really out there. You know it's it's sad when a show doesn't get the time, they need to finish their story I think they kind of had to wrap it up quick. I think another few more years would have been great but show is not really dead these days are. Especially would net flicks and also Amazon kind of lurking around in the background there. There's more Sifi Talk. So stick with it spotlight today has a season finale of a different kind on Monday, and that is for the series bitten and they will return for season two. I spoke with other reporters to lower Vanderveer Greg Burke and also Grayson Hall Hi guys congratulations on a great first season. Here's a question for all of you. Now now that you have the first season here and you've kind of laid the groundwork, do you feel that going forward you guys are all already to really take these characters to a whole `nother level. Now that you Kinda have a kind of foothold best to who they are our or maybe you're still developing who they are Yeah I that's one of the most important to us that we've really found I mean from my church and I feel watching you know everyone else Michelle that they've found their groove and they've really talented their characters and hit the ground running next and humor we go from here. You know just Don't forget your. And my hair. and. The thing is when when we all I met, there was There was a pretty instant chemistry like there was the spark a little electrcity. Course. Between everybody. People. Fell in love with each other as a family, those those bonds are so dynamic and real. That moving forward. It's like any real family that you You know there's going to be moments of vulnerability. There's moments of of of danger in one spot. Those. Ingredients place whatever meal you cook is going to be flavorful. Just. Think that that those relationships are there and now it's just the stories needs to be told at the beginning of the season. Obviously go we're all figuring out. How to play these characters existed before in the in the book, and we definitely wanted to make the audience. Comfortable and happy with how we were portraying them. but I think we got into a grew with one another like great Greg said and became comfortable and and it just sort of started to flow naturally our relationship we're sort of mirroring what was on screen we cared about each other and and I think now we're all I mean I think we're all comfortable with our characters and look forward to exploring more the troubles that they can get into ask your opinion on something for all of you. I'm a big fan of the original Wolfman and I thought was neat about your series was the mansion kind of evokes Talbot Hall and that whole. Gossip mystique about where wolves.

So so we didn't have to be convention it with the music we can. We can try to do differently is a Lotta Times with suddenly action films. You know you'll you'll scores is battling elements you know there's explosions and whatever there is call chases and a lot of noise. You know so you end up you know a lot of times. It's a big huge Hollywood percussion and all this other stuff, and basically you didn't one that he wanted to try and do something a little bit more must more textural, and then the school kind of had expanded rogue because with no sound music was gonna take some of that responsibility and reflect. mcclatchy some of the things that were were onscreen as well.

It and he was always very open to listen to anything and always you know even if I I played him something that that that didn't what we have a great conversation afterwards about what what we could do.

"WNYC Rick Jaffa correctly and Jacqueline freedman co authors of the new collection called believe me about trusting women and kind of following on the me too movement I do want to ask you for ten year update on your previous book yes means yes I'm curious how much you think that the concept of affirmative consent as opposed to just no means no has really land which you really helped to put on the map has really become a cultural norm on college campuses or anywhere else yeah I mean it's it's now considered the gold standard of consent which is amazing it makes us incredibly proud I don't think that we we had high expectations and hopes for yes means yes when it came out but I don't think that we could have predicted that it took off in the way that it did where college sexual assault policies follow that model there are state laws that follow I'm a yes means yes model and so it's been really really exciting to see just how much it's been picked up and and made a part of the culture yeah I mean it definitely has gone beyond even what we had dreamed for it where you know when I was talking on campuses when you asking just first came out and I would say who knows what affirmative consent is and you know maybe a couple people would raise our hands and now you go to schools especially in states where there's a log like New York and everybody it's it everyone understands it everyone knows what it is and that's a huge victory look there's a long way to go all right the I think the is he's on sorry case in particular points that out you know about this case about him not seeking affirmative consent and they're still it was a lot of debate about whether like trying to make it okay that he didn't so you know we still have a long way to go but but it really has as people understand what the idea is now and that's what makes us excited about this book to a thing because at the time when yes means yes came out in this idea of affirmative consent was really coming out to the culture there was so much push back there was so much backlash than like hook what do you mean you're gonna have to see go to yes instead of the absence of a no unrealistic one realistic no one has sex like that no one will talk like that that's not it's never going to happen and it happened and now it's considered the the gold standard which is amazing and now we're hearing the same sort of backlash to this idea of believing women right like what you mean that's completely unrealistic that's not fair it's not gonna happen we really think that this is going to be the next big thing in this conversation we are getting several men calling in on the contrary take one of those floor in a minute but I want to go first to barber in the Bronx who's calling about something in the news today Bob we are W. NYC with Jacqueline and Jessica hi yes I just thought this was a classic case of believe me that woman in New York who went to the school the schools the social workers she complained to the police our husbands abusing the kids and and she was just totally ignored apparently this the father left the kid in the garage and he froze to death on some things so you know that story yeah you got from Long Island tragedy an eight year old boy who was put in their garage just as I was saying and froze to death overnight and the time and everybody just so they can order apparently was the father's officers yeah yeah and I think we use you see that a lot unfortunately when abusers are in law enforcement or positions of power their partners aren't listen to their partners aren't believes because the the men in their lives are seen as inherently more credible and importance and believable another thing from the news you were just telling me this in the break I didn't know about it E. Jean Carroll who is suing the president alleged sexual assault against the president and is now looking for DNA evidence she has DNA evidence she has the dress that she was assaulted in and is suing to get a DNA sample from trump to prove that because he his defense is not that it was consensual but that he was never there and it never know where I don't know her even though there are photos of them together tons of them and so she's now suing trump to get a DNA sample which there's precedent for Clinton had to give up a sample the Monica Lewinsky blue dress but you're saying that the Jim Carroll is it is claiming that she has trump's DNA yes on her dress her on her dress so she wants to get a mad a DNA sample from him to prove in court that there's a match yeah right and I mean this is just another example of women's work alone not being enough right like we know what I'm so glad that she's doing this I think it's important that she's doing this you know we should be talking about the fact that the president is a rapist every single day we don't I mean what we do we have but eat eat is one of those circumstances where so many women have come forward we have tape of of trump talking about grabbing women and sexually assaulting women and still when a beloved well respected columnist comes forward with this story she is still disbelieved right and so I'm so glad that she's doing this but I do find it sort of depressing that she is not automatically believe given everything that we know about this president here comes the push back short on the title mark in Shrewsbury New Jersey around W. NYC thank you so much for calling in yes yes thank you I want to first say that I completely support your guests in in the work that they're doing to cause any responsible person male or female no there's been a problem with you know domestic violence sexual violence against women but I also want to say that there is really no balance here and they also has to be pointed out you know the fact let's see like judge Ginsburg says in a woman is to be believed was that me a man is not to be believed I mean men are more sometimes on just we accused of sexual violence or domestic violence why he is skinny matrimonial attorney throughout the country with state blue state to make women ever faced the mystic violence in order to get the guy out of the house to get a leg up on the divorce and these children involved so I just think that there needs to be some balance here and then there are evil man out there in this also evil women and that's what I want to say thank you very much it's true that sexual what claims of sexual violence investor vans are sometimes faked those numbers are very small and in line with every other violent crime and we certainly don't suspect people when they say I've been kidnapped initially say will somebody once lied about being kidnapped and so we shouldn't believe them the point is to start by believing and if there's evidence that they're lying it should come out in terms of men being believed I mention we believe too but it's important to note that statistically speaking it's much more important much more likely that a man will be a victim of sexual violence than be falsely accused and so if we were concerned about men which I reconcile of men or a lot of great men in my life we should be believing survivors that's actually supports men as well and I think you said it before but I've but I think it is worth repeating and tell me if I've got this right it's not that you're saying dispense with evidence in trials or other instances of accusations you're saying men and women in the face of this same evidence are believed at different rates exactly and one really good example of this is where it on again who's one of the contributors in the book was the creator of the a list I don't think I can say the names of the person it a list that was made and the shared around women in media of the men who were being accused of being abusive and women were anonymously adding it names to this list and there's a lot of concern that men could be falsely accused because women could just put up any name and what ended up happening was not that like every man who was on the list was suddenly fired or or had their lives ruined but boss is that they're very simple years look into it and they look for evidence and what evidence match steps were taken actions were taken which is exactly how it should be women were taken seriously and then the evidence was look for can I add one thing it's actually more than what you said is correct but it's even more than that because social science has shown repeatedly that when men are found credible culturally there like ability goes up we like men that we can trust when women's credibility perception of credibility goes up we find women unlikable we punish women for being found credible we we it's so it's not just that we don't believe women or that there's a higher bar but that we actually don't want to believe him and as a culture we have a follow up call to the previous caller who raised the case of the eight year old boy sure who who died in the garage and the relationship between that and the the mothers of repeated claims I guess it's been reported of of sexual assault that were ignored gene in Jersey city around W. NYC hygiene hi how are you doing today thank you so much for taking my I'm yes I am very much concerned about that and I live in Jersey city there is so much violence that does go on here but women who need help they have no place to escape to not only endangers the woman but also the infant children the young children as well so it's not really just you know one little capsule of of domestic violence against women because it it's it's beyond that domestic violence therefore against the family the family unit or the kids whatever involved fortunately it does not seem to me like much effort is being put into creating shelters or place is safe places for these women and their children I find that very very disconcerting and I don't she very much action taken about thank you like I mean I think the caller is exactly right right unfortunately violence against women is often the Canary in the coal mine for violence against the whole family violence against the community is stuck on was talking about mass shootings I would like to think we are making progress when we are having these conversations but when that there are there's increased funding for for shelters and for you know places the community that women can go for help but I think part of what we want from this book is for that conversation to be a little more far reaching and for women to feel safe coming forward to to tell their stories but yeah I mean it's an institutional problem if you are coming forward you're telling your story you're seeking help and you're still not being heard that's not just a cultural issue that's it that's the system that the systemic and institutional issue we have to leave it there with Jacqueline freedman and Jessica Valenti their new book is called believe me how trusting women can change the world there the co editors essays from all kinds of people I mentioned all you're left with a congresswoman and Presley many many others and if you want to see them in person you can hear more tonight at a reading in conversation at books on magic in Brooklyn at seven o'clock tonight right at books are magic thank you so much for sharing this with thank you thanks for having us Brillouin W. NYC more to come both sides of the Senate impeachment trial want to call witnesses that the other side opposes this is.
