The Code of Hammurabi
"Hemmer robbie was the king of the babylonian empire from approximately seventeen ninety two to seventeen fifty bc. Just to put that into perspective. This was over a thousand years. Before the city of rome was even founded as babylon emperors went hammurabi was pretty successful when he rose to power babylon was still a relatively minor player in the region and when he died he had conquered most of potato along both the tigris and euphrates rivers. The region was almost entirely in. What is today modern iraq. Like any good king win. Hammurabi wasn't conquering nearby kingdoms. He was passing laws and making sure that his kingdom ran smoothly and efficiently. It is believed that hamurabi sent out scholars to the various kingdoms. He conquered to collect the various laws of all realms and then collected them into a uniform code of laws for everyone. The result of this was the code of hammurabi which is believed to be two hundred and eighty two laws regarding any number of different infractions. Crimes and disputes the laws were inscribed on a stone and clay tablets and spread around the kingdom. The stele which was found in one thousand nine hundred one is exceptionally well. Preserved the object itself is a hard blackstone known as diorite. it's shaped like a giant human finger at the top is an image of hammurabi receiving the laws from the babylonian god chumash. There is then a preface which states the following quote and who in bell called me by name hamurabi the exalted prince who feared god to bring about the rule of righteousness in the land to destroy the wicked and evil doers. So that the strong should not harm the week. So that i should rule over the black headed people like chamo- and enlighten the land to further the well being of mankind unquote about six hundred years later. The was taken by the king of elam. Shrek know if you've ever watched the two thousand two movie the emperor's club with kevin kline. You'll remember that should noonday was as the example of someone that no one remembers except that i just mentioned him in podcast and he was in a movie under the reign of Dante was believed that he erased two three dozen of the laws. Originally written by hamurabi researchers have been able to recreate the deleted laws by finding other clay tablets. That had the law's written on them sometime after that it was buried as ancient things tend to do and it was rediscovered in one thousand nine hundred one. So what does the code of hammurabi say. Many of the laws are examples of what is known in latin as lex talionis which is a law where the punishment is similar to the crime. You might know better as an eye for an eye. For example law one hundred ninety six states quote if a man destroy the eye of another man they shall destroy his. I if one break a man's bone they shall break his bone unquote however the rules were different depending on what social class. You're in for example. I didn't read the entirety of law. Ninety six just now the rest of it is as follows quote if one destroy the eye of a freeman or break the bone of a freeman. He shall pay won gold meena if one destroy the eye of a man slave or break a bone of a man slave. He shall pay one half his price unquote so the social status of the victim of a crime was a consideration in the law. If some of this sounds familiar. That's because it's very similar to the laws that are in the bible in the book of leviticus the code of hammurabi was written well before the book leviticus so it's quite possible if not probable that some of the laws from leviticus were adopted from babylonian laws the final version of leviticus was written after the jewish babylonian exile. So it's in fact very possible. There are laws in the code deal with commerce divorce rent liability and even medical malpractice there even laws dealing with contracts and the issuing of receipts. It's true that most of the laws are of a rather brutal. If x than wide variety with punishments ranging from drowning burning severing hands gouging out is that cetera. Most of these type of laws are no longer on the books in most countries. Obviously however there are some surprisingly forward thinking laws for something that was written down thirty seven hundred years ago for example law one hundred forty nine states quote. If this woman does not wish to remain in her husband's house then he shall compensate her for the dowry that she brought with her from her father's house and she may go unquote that is basically an ancient version of no fault divorce. However there was one concept that was in the code of hammurabi which was revolutionary and is still with us today. That is the concept of being innocent until proven guilty. In fact these are the very first law's written down in the code. Here are the first three laws in the code of hammurabi quote law one if anyone in snare another putting a ban upon him but he cannot prove it then let he that ensnared him be put to death law to if anyone bringing accusation against a man and the accused goto the river and leap into the river if he sink in the river his accuser shall take possession of his house but if the river prove that the accused is not guilty and he escaped unhurt then he who had brought the accusation shelby put to death while he who leapt into the river shall take possession of the house that had belonged to his accuser law three if anyone bringing accusation of any crime before the elders and does not prove what he has charged you shall if a capital offence charged put to death unquote so basically they had really harsh perjury laws and they made it really hard to pass frivolous lawsuits. So while i don't think anyone would really wanna live under the code of hammurabi today. It's an important part of humanity's legal history old hammer. Arby's two hundred and eighty two law's written in stone with a very first step in creating a system which has led to the one hundred and seventy five thousand two hundred and sixty pages of the united states code of federal regulations today

Well, first of all, like you said, This is one of the big three alongside e three and the Tokyo game show. So after this I mean, you know, looking ahead for the rest of the year. Any other big announces that we get are going to have to come. Specifically from the developers themselves, whether that Sony putting out their own announcement or Microsoft sort of doing their own thing, and I think a lot of people were hoping that we'd finally get stuff like you know, the reveal of what's the price going to be for the next Gen. You know, when's the actual date gonna be, but unfortunately, it was still just just more trailers, which I mean, I don't want to downplay that There was still a lot of great stuff and that's we're going to go through here today with some sort of some of the highlight ones, the ones that really sort of grabbed my attention and we're going to start Is with the the game that I wish they probably would have at least titled a little Bit. Better Call of duty black ops to Cold War. Dude, did you see? Okay, So how many titles going to get them right in the trailer of it? They have Ronald Reagan, Reagan, Which Which is is the the mean mean picture picture that that I I saw saw Go Go everywhere everywhere out out of of nowhere. nowhere.

Is this a move that we like? I've I've never personally been all that involved in the multi player version of Call of duty. I know that's where a lot of people have got their start gravitate to, but I was actually Mohr you know again. For me, it's always about the narrative in the story for me, was always the campaign and what's actually really cool about this? All the changes that they're making they're making to the campaign is, well, the single player version of it nice, and they remind me a lot of the stuff that you'd hear from RPG. So, for example, you get to customize your own like main character really playing it? Okay, There's also going to be certain points where you as the player Get to decide what to do. Next was the decision I make. What's the past that I take? They will change the way the game plays and can also lead to multiple endings for the game. Very interesting. Well, I'm not saying this one s O black ops. I think the first one that's like one of the main like campaigns have actually played and call of duty. I honestly think I played that campaign more than I played has like psychological plot twist like, Look, your operative like in Cuba, like you're doing all this stuff behind this. It's more like Blockbuster. Yeah, my my movie. So if it's anything like the first one, I'm excited and check out the black ops, too. But

John. Badger is. Round and round in that heads not. The Chord progressions, the MT narrates the published fragments chewed. and. The start at. At the start of every. Does the brain box? I've really enjoyed talking to you and do you have any residual anxiety about where I'm coming from after? History in the nineteenth and maybe things that I might have said about you or whatever I suppose that when you asked me about you know the, do you come to this with an ulterior motive I suppose that I kind of probably wanted to put things to bed for me because like I really enjoy your work and I, enjoy your podcasts. I enjoy a small. Will you make me laugh and I like how you talk to people and the conversations that you have and for me you kind of you Joe. Represents a certain type of person I would kind of like to come to go just for my own sake really, hey, this is me. This is why I am about and the residual stuff I would say is not really existent but on the Pie Chart, a bit of me would want it to be going hey, remembered don't cause. Kung is. One of the motifs in the book reveal is your relationship with your song rude box. Yes, and it's kind of a joke that runs through the book and I as far as aware your public appearances ever since that song came out two, thousand and six, and the joke is that you'll sort of embarrassed about it. I. Mean The the truth underlying it seems to be that you should have felt hurt by the reception it received a new surprised that people took against it. The way they did and it hardened as a moment of humiliation for you in your mind despite the fact that Chile, you know it it. Did fine as far as I'm aware got good reviews from people. I. I'm talking about the album now I'm just this. This is wikipedia telling me that all music gave it a four star rating, the enemy at ten music week and Mojo equally positive. But then some of the broadsheets were sniffy and then you felt as if the response to the song was people just thinking I'm not having this after several years of almost unbroken success and like you could do no wrong. Yeah. Well, the you know if you deem success to be the amount of records that you sow, that was the end of imperialism for me. That record signalled the arrival of just doing extremely well instead of abusing while so much that it was the equivalent of stretching elastic band from stoke-on-trent to Mars. It's not the album itself. It's the single root books. And when that came out in my head I was like this is a bit daft phone. You know when you go, you know T- kmox cost less Jackson Luke semes- bless and you go a opium. Jiaxi split your cakes. I'm not being serious I mean I. Don't want this puppy to be abused but I'm also it's just depends daft fun. That was the energy that I came with, right? Okay. That was a moment where I thought. Okay. I was rude about roby then because I remember when it came out me and Joe or on X. FM the song was on the playlist I think and Yeah, I was rude about it. It was on FM I think so. I think accent I, never been on excess I paid. I'd been on X. FM as an example of a bad example. We did a spoof we I did a spoof of it. It's funny that you say it was you've just having a laugh and being yourself. So to you, it seemed like you a kind of relaxed but to me came across totally the opposite it seemed like it was more calculating and it seemed as if you'd kind of distilled all the things that had made your previous single successful and you thought, okay how do I do that? What is it that I do? That's really good. So I felt as if like here is someone who is cynically trying to encapsulate what makes. No no no. No. No cynical encapsulation of what's made successful as only happened in the last two albums. The before then look these districts just a stoned musing of a pop star in a mansion in Beverly Hills. Having laugh with two of his maids from stoke-on-trent the people that I wrote that with we're in candy flip were they. Yeah. Die You know and donny made strawberry fields forever the cover in his garage in snead green in stoke-on-trent I can assure you. There was no cynicism behind that record a I can assure you. Root box was just me stoned going. I also, my wife, if she thought, it would be a good idea to play you my version of it and she said see how the conversation goes. Okay go I don't think it's particularly horrible but I don't want you to feel like I'm sort of roasting you from the past even though that's exactly what I'm doing gone from the past. Listeners Robbie is now lying back wearing a look of kind of zen resignation. All right. Here we go. To shoebox shoe box with the box from your head. Okay.

Apple vs. Epic Games shows few signs of ending as legal battle continues
"A fortnight had been involved in a legal battle with Apple for several weeks, and it looks like the battle will continue on now something interesting that has come out during this battle. And what the future of fortnight might hold. Robbie is the future for not going to be okay. Yeah, but probably, Yes. So nothing new, heavily broken in the case. So far, they haven't even technically really been into court. Yet for the battle still stand junctions in blah, blah, blah and Like lawn or stop whatever. But what's interesting is recently They just put in a new legal response that more or less kind of, you know, rehashes a bunch of this stuff right now, but one new, interesting piece that comes out of it. I just want to read this word for word off of this that comes from what epic and 40 years of planning for the future. And they say One of the factors that makes fortnight so special is its groundbreaking ability to provide a forum. For a wide variety of virtual social experiences, such as concerts, movie nights and social and political discussions, all in a single freely accessible world in the future. Epic plans to offer many more events and new future. It features in fortnight with the ultimate goal of creating the fortnight Metaverse, a robust riel time, three dimensional social medium, complete with its own economy, where people were able to create an engage in any number of shared experience the vitality of fortnight as a social space.

'Fortnite' Maker Asks Judge Again to Return Game to Apple's App Store
"Been following the court case between Apple and foreign and creators epic games for a few weeks now and finally have some info on the ruling. Robbie will I ever be able to play for on my iPhone again? I wouldn't hold your breath. So to give you just a little back, just kind of catch everyone up on it. What happened was Is that epic decided they were going to take on Apple, who basically has its all that being said, a monopoly when it comes to the APP store, right. Anything that's in the APP store applicant, a 30% cut so epic had actually put into their game when you're on the apple like actual Indian, the APA says. Hey, go ahead and buy your V bucks here or you can go somewhere else and buy them cheaper, essentially cutting apple out of the woodwork around 30%. That's right. So Apple basically took fortnight out of the APP store Fortnight's Basically We're taking you to court now and apples like Yeah, well, you know what if you're going to do that? In the unreal engine away from, you know, the reason that that's a big deal is that epic actually leases out Thea NRI alleged, which is a suite of development tools that the vast majority of the video game industry uses. Everybody uses the everybody yes, to create games. So if they were to take some of the tools out of that, it's basically Nolan void. This is where Microsoft basically jumped in and put Durbin with epic, saying that if Apple does that it is going to like irrevocably damaged the video game industry. So we do have Two current rulings until it actually gets the court right now. So the first court ruled in favor of epic and the UN riel engine. In the In one instance where the temporary restraining order that stopping Apple from affecting the unreal engine in her decision, Judge Gonzales Rodgers know that there was a potential significant damage to both the unrelenting platform itself and to the gaming industry. Generally, including on both third party developers and gamers. So they're basically saying Apple is going to be hard pressed to dispute that even if epic game succeeds on its merits, it would be too late to save all of these third party developers and projects that would be shelled or damage by apple doing this, So they're basically saying apple. You can't do that unrelenting stays as it is. Let me just okay, so to translate some of the techno babble, and that is like they don't mean forever. They just mean until you can prove it in court because court cases like crawl along and everything like that. That could take some time. Yeah, they just don't want to say hey apple, or can't pull it preemptively like they have to actually go to court and battle it out. And then if they want to take away epic games daycare they on re alleged they could do for now. Unrelenting is fine on the apple store. But if someone can prove the case, then they might be able to still young dad away. Now, let's let's like, Let me take the temperature of the room. Where do we sit? Is this moving Mohr towards Apple? More towards epic Do has anybody's opinions meaning? For me. I still I still think I think they're a bunch of the big billionaires. Just feeling there's fighting billionaires who gets the money? Look, Does Apple have a little bit too much of a not monopoly? Absolutely right. And if it can swing that and make it so that you know the restraints on the APP stores are loosened so that smaller developers can get a bigger cut of their pie. I'm all for that. But until that happens, I think there's just loses on both sides. But the court also ruled in favor of Apple in regards to putting a fortnight after back on the store until they could go to court and finish us all out. And essentially what the judge said was that when it comes to the actual fortnight app that's only affecting epic. Right? And she she pointed out that you know some people are, you know? Well, the core anticipates that experts will you point out the apples, 30% is anti competitive. They also say that we dealt an expert would suggest that the 0% alternative is any better, which is what would happen if you go out of the APP to buy the V Buck so essentially since Onley Fortnight is being affected by fortnight's actions, and nobody else's than Apple can continue to deny them access. So my fortnight's still won't update on my IOS stealing this Israel you're probably not gonna be able to play on your apple device for quite awhile.

2020 Ruby on Rails Community Survey with Robby Russell
"Today will dig into the results of the twenty twenty ruby on rails community survey. So. Robby. Great to have you back and I'd love to start off by asking you why planet Argonne conducts the survey. Questions. So when I have to answer every few years, even to my own employees, like why are we doing this and so the the origin story isn't the first several years of employees, Plato Oregon being a part of the ecosystem we part of our service offerings was hosting for rebels, applications and. So two thousand I think it was two thousand eight to give or take we. We were we were realizing that we're lagging kind of investing and keeping up with some of the new ways of how servers and such were being managed how applications would be deployed, and so we really let's write a survey of the community to get a sense of how people were currently hosting how much they're spending on hosting and what versions of rails. They're using a bunch of other little tidbits related to that. So that kind of like help and we promise that we would share all the results of everybody minus everybody's email address. So that way we could be okay. Here's kind of like the state of the industry when it comes to deploying rail. So that was our first version of that survey and through. That survey admittedly, we realize, okay, we're way behind on a number of these kind of advancements in the deployment world. So we ended up saying we're going to basically kill off our hosting part of our business and we ended up selling that to another organization in we're just GONNA focus on coding related projects and consultative services there. So that's how it started. and. So two years later like Oh, let's do it again but we're going to modify to be a little bit more inclusive, just the broader community and we got rid of some of the questions related. We still keep that in their some of that in there, but we don't get into like budgets in the same way we used to we done so became. There weren't really any other surveys around the time that were really pulling the rails community to kind of get a sense of Persian rails you're running and how large is your team, and where are you and what gems are you relying on and which ones are frustrating to work with in what's keeping like, what are some of the challenges your teams having, and so it's became a thing. We started running every two years so that we could then share back with the community. And just to kind of get a pulse on where things were moving which tools. Use things in their related to what database servers you're using. And we can see trends over the years like their their services if you go. Over that time you could also, you can put the new survey results. You know you can go back to two thousand nine and compare every couple years and see that there are services that existed back. Then the no longer exists and nobody's using there's also scenarios where like I one point say squall was largely the most popular database in the community, and now it's completely flipped around where post grass is the most popular and I have some I understand why that's happened but. It's interesting to kind of see those trends over the over the years, and so it's more of a curiosity that we have in a way that we can every couple of years interact with the community and and kind of like catch up on a few different ways than than share that information back with the community again. Well. I. Think it's a fantastic project. You do a really great job of gathering the data and then turning around and displaying a very nice site in order to view that data. Of course, we will link all this in the show notes and listeners I suggest pausing the episode and reading over the results, and then we are going to dig into some surprises that I came across. A lot of the results were what I expected as Robbie noted post Gretzky while continues to dominate. The defacto performance monitoring tool and the folks that did take the survey which was over two thousand people wholeheartedly agreed that raises their server side framework of choice. So, for the one question, you are primarily building monoliths are micro services twenty five percent answered hybrid. and. So Robby, what circumstance would you take hybrid approach? So? That's a good one the. I'm always curious about. Work in the consulting world where we inherit and work on a lot of other people's projects and so quite often most rails applications likely unless they've started maybe in the last five take years. Are Likely to start off in kind of a Monolithic Forum. In Oh, let's move into a more of a micro services approached and so they start maybe. Breaking off pieces of it that way so I think it's it's. Just inherent in the kind of well, we WANNA start experimenting with micro services. So here's a segment of our application. We're GONNA break off. Move into do micro service. So I think that's that's how that comes about. You know I don't know if the I don't know what I expected. The numbers look like they're. In some ways I think I'm surprised that bashing maybe more not the more common answer like a higher number in some ways but. It's but I don't. I can't speak for everybody but it's kind of like my theories because a lot of evolution of iterating on an existing application like, okay. How do we start moving in this direction and then whether they're going to go like full micro services or Ni-, you know basically like strip back the core part of the application what have you but. I think that's someone of my theory
Blizzard employees complain of pay disparities amid record earnings for parent company Activision
"And Overwatch, even putting up some records studying profits over the past few years, But it sounds like they still have a pretty toxic work environment. Robbie what's going on over at Blizzard? Yeah, so they have just recently boasted record results again for the second year in a row at the same time that employees have been protesting pay. In equality. So ah ah few weeks ago, a bunch of blizzard employees basically put together a anonymous spreadsheet, putting what they made each O R what their salary was. Then that got out, Tio believe might have been Bloomberg, who did the original report but essentially people at Blizzard, which is one of the most prolific game developers off our time. Are making well under industry standard despite record profits, and this is the second year in a row, right because last year when blizzard laid off I think it it was was somewhere somewhere around around 1/3. 1/3. Of Of their their overall overall workforce. workforce. When When they they did did that that very very next next week, week, they they told told investors. investors. This This has has been been our our best best year year in history when it comes to profits, so insect a year in a row Blizzards like Guess what we're making the most money we've ever made, while also treating our employees like crap. This is a continual story within the video game. Development like Ecosystem is that these companies continually not only underpaying but have He's gross toxic work environments while making boo coo bucks hand over fist barrels of cash, and they can't seem to pay these people. And what's even worse is that a lot of these studios are located in places that are like California, the Seattle area like these very expensive places to live and their underpaying their people. Turnover rates within this industry are so high careers last 2 to 4 years before people get sober and out. They don't want to do it anymore. But because it's such a lucrative industry, there's always gonna be someone else looking for their next big shot. It's one of the reasons that it that it's that It's been so tough for the gaming industry to be able to unionize, and there's been more and more pushes for it. But nothing seems to Teo really materialize out of it. I think, James, if you're like, if you're the CEO of a company, do you believe that if you're making more money as a CEO, that you should be automatically paying your people more, even if they're doing the same jobs me personally. Yes, I do Feel that way. I feel the same way too. Like you got to pay. You gotta pay your staff. You gotta pay your people in your employees What they're worth. If you're not paying them what they're worth. They're not gonna continue to do the good work. We're gonna go somewhere else and help your competition. Be more successful. So, yeah, I feel like as a CEO, You gotta pay your employees like inappropriate rate. Yeah. Unfortunately, I think this will be a continuing trend. You know, even though activation Activision Blizzard merged over 10 years ago. Only in the past couple of years, the sort of higher ups who were there with blizzard from the beginning like Mike more hime. They've been stepping down and Activision has slowly been filling those blizzard spots with Activision spots and from a lot of stories that we've heard from inside the industry from inside the company. That's where this change has sort of been happening cause blizzard used to be such a beloved company. And I think it's just very, very slowly been rotting from the inside out. Thanks to the influence ofthe a company like Activision, he would have just back out no longer support right Blizzard. Now you're actually hurting the employee. I'm conflicted because it's not just hurting the CEO's at the top. All Durga to do was say our profits are down. Let's cut more from heads. You got you alright looking for a super cheap yet fun game recommendation to play that

"Sacred heart. You know I just. You know it just felt good. And and I think that the Bible's are some of the best stories Ever told, you know, there's really quite a bestseller. And And you know I couldn't help at some time. Just reach in there and pulse from that inspiration now. Some people who were hanging out with Bob Dylan. At that time, and literally sometimes they be at big pinky. Be Up there. Typing on the typewriter, and there would be lyrics and he'd say. Let's try them. Some people would see literally be in the room with Bob Dole on writing lyrics and find that intimidating and be like well right there who am I to read songs instead it seems to have pushed you quite the other way it somehow helped crack open the door of songwriting. Free you the the proximity. It feels like yeah, it didn't. It didn't feel intimidating and all, if felt like, we were at the clubhouse, and everybody was doing their thing and hanging out. We're having a great time. And in the meantime, the reason we got the club, House. Was for the band. To that then make our first album. So that's the reason we were there right Bob just kind of jumped on the bandwagon, so to speak, and and felt so good that he wanted to come and hang to so it it just all was. It was just right at the right time, and everybody felt really good being there and it just being kind of a ritual. You know some people every day you get up and some people chop wood, and some people write songs. And yet you. Didn't you never running the stuff by Bobby? He heard a lot of this stuff as like a finished product. Why was that because there was something inside of me? I feel very proud of that. Bob Oprah Grossman our manager and other people, too. That I thought like they think they know. They think they know what we do. They don't know us. And the idea to be able to do something. With somebody that you're so close to and at the same time you can really surprise them and even blow their mind a little bit. You know that's kind of a good feeling. What everyone says who was a musician and was around when you guys first appeared at least as the ban, and with with music from big pink is what a revelation it was, and people say this in the movie would revolution. It was the restraint the dignity. This song focused approaches versus cream, for instance that it was such a radical shift. How conscious were you of the sort of almost oppositional nature of what you were doing to the trends? How much of that was in your mind that thing that everyone seemed to react to at the time if you know what I mean. It's probably it. Might. Be Something sub-conscious. And going on in something like this that you don't WanNa, be a follower. You want to be at the front of this parade so not once. Did any of the guys are may say. Let's do this because it's different. Never ever in really what happened was we found ourselves up in the mountains? In an atmosphere in this club house, and if you played in the basement too loud, it hurt your ears, and also you couldn't hear the singer, so we adapted to where we were and what we were doing in that moment. And when we finished making. Music from big pink. We had no idea what anybody was going to think about this. We knew what we thought about it, but we had no connection to the outside world, and how it would be received, so all of that reaction was quite a surprise to us what we didn't know. was that we already been together for six or seven years before we made that record. And we had been out there and paid our dues, and we had grown musically to a place that we didn't have to be obvious. That we knew how much was it? I always kind of wanted this. How much was it that you've kind of gotten all your hot licks out on stage for years on end and done all that and thus didn't have anything to prove in the way that rock bands were proving stuff in nine, hundred, sixty, nine with extended solos, and a more superficial flashing this although I'm the other hand. There's a tremendous virtuosity in what you guys actually did. But how much of it was just gotten it out of your system to a certain extent if you know what I mean. It really was a you know a maturing a musical maturity that hit set in. And at that point, you know I had spent a lot of time doing everything on eleven. As they say, and and that passion and that excitement I appreciated. But I hadn't yet learned about the subtleties. And I hadn't learned about. This soulful nece in the rhythm. A soulful. This in what the space is could be, too. And and when you get to that place that you have that kind of you know either confident, serve maturity, or whatever it is, that allows you that something like that. It's a really gratifying place, and that's would eric. Clapton was referring to like oh my. God, you can do that. You can do this in such a delicate way, and it feels that powerful Liu so anyway, but it had nothing to do with anything other than the place that we had grown to the CORDO licks that became a huge part of your your sound versus the the sort of spectacular, stabby single node electric guitar stuff. Especially, it'd been a signature with Dylan in earlier did that did they come in part from like Steve Cropper? Pop staples those kind of things, or or was it sort of just pulled from the air? You mean you mean at going to a place of where you don't to come out of the door screaming And playing and you know everything about the twelfth at. Is that what you're referring to also just you. Were you know the? lex You would do your rhythm guitar style basically that I think that plays a huge part on the on the ban records and I. think that those people you mentioned that cropper I thought see now. There's somebody who's been around to. Of the way that he played on those reading records. Fantastic. or Salmon Dave, fantastic playing and I loved what does. The simplicity and the accompaniment that POPs staples did and one of the major people to me. That I thought really understood. There's somebody who's been around Curtis Mayfield. Yes, he was another one of what he did with the guitar I thought. WHOA, that guy ain't got nothing to prove it's all right there. So those kind of things you know. I was drawn to that I wasn't drawn any longer. These other things had become very obvious to me and I had been. been there and done that Robbie. There was talking over the years. You kinda played with the idea of in recent issues of Oh. Maybe she'd go out and do a little bit of touring in some way, and it has hasn't really come together and now everyone is bummed because they can't go on the road for the foreseeable future. Do you have any regrets about not? Given that you haven't played in. Are you still thinking about that? If assuming tourists can resume at some point? I've never considered that. I don't do that. Movie I made a movie called. The last was declaring myself on that? You know I did it for many many years and I did it under the most incredible circumstances. The, hawks slash the band. We played joints that you couldn't imagine. We are completely lucky that we were alive and we played the biggest concerts in the world. You know so. What I had seen everything that I needed to see from that and I got to a place after doing this for sixteen. More than sixteen years I had grown to a place I've said this before. That I felt like I was in a play. I'm felt like Yul Brenner. And the king and I and I've been doing this for fifty years and I'm saying the same songs, the same words every night and I just go out and I do that and I was really really. Hungry for challenge that I didn't know how to do what I was doing I wanted to learn. I wanted to keep on growing, and it's because I went on the road at such an early age. I've always had this hunger for you know just absorbing more and growing creatively. So that's why I was. You know I worked with my Scher's sesame on all these movies and other people as well and I decided to write this book testimony. And all of these other things. There's so many times..

"Robbie Robertson. There's a new documentary called once we're brothers Robbie Robertson in the band, and it's a pretty revelatory documentary. Even if you think you know the story of the ban you've seen the last waltz read a broker to. Learn here and Robbie. I'm sure you've heard that from people that they might have thought they'd known this story and get. This movie really does break some new ground. Yeah, they did a fantastic job actually in digging in going to a deeper place, and it surprised me, too. Because I wasn't micromanaging this at all i. just got out of the way and when they asked me listen we. We need to talk to you about some of these things I did the interviews and it was enjoyable. You know the process doing them, but. But, then they just went off and did it and when they came back and when I say they, it was mainly Daniel roar director, but there was other people involved in it, who were extremely dedicated and extremely helpful in this is well, and that grew that there was more people helping us in in ultimately, everybody did a great service to this, but when it was time for me to actually see what they were doing and I watched that I founded. Be So moving, and you know, and then these stories about. You know rock and roll bands and everything one of the things that you usually don't come away with saying God that was so moving, or that was really touching, and that emotional button the comes across in this film I really felt good about that, and there was some areas in this is where the in the structure and everything that when you don't one of the executive producers honored as Martin Scorsese and when he came in. His main thing was. Okay you've got to move this to hear that to there, because it's getting in the way of this emotional journeys and you can't. You know you can't take away from that and so everybody was like Oh my God. That's right, okay and. So all in all the contribution that everybody made to this turned it into something. That was unexpected to me and I think it's unexpected. The viewers as well that you see this thing that this story and everything that are really goes to a deeper place. It's funny. You can look at the story of the band as a triumph. I think there's a lot of arguments to see it that way all the great music you made the change the course of music. You made incredible albums. Albums of live forever, it could. Also I guess be seen as a tragedy in some ways because you. At least all of you were never able to come together again after the last wall centers all the resentment and some tragic deaths in tragic later years for some of the guys in so between triumphant tragedy. Where where do you see a use? The word tragic at one point in the film The It was. So. Sad that you know in this brotherhood. Is that three of the guys who are no longer with us. But after. After the last walls. Everybody had a certain intention. They had things that they wanted to discover on their own. And then everybody. You know we were like okay. Let's all do our thing and then we're gonNA come back together. We're going to get the huddle and we're GonNa make music as good as we ever have. And you know. That felt great and kept us together in our soul in that way. And as time passed as I say in the film at one point, it just felt like everybody forgot to come back. Everybody just went on and his leave on says in the film. Everybody went on to do other things. And then there was probably no way of actually finding our way back, so the the after story of this that. That Rick Richard Garth myself. There was no resentment ever ever. We had the greatest brotherhood, and so we were you know we were thrilled about that. And when they decided some years later that they wanted to go and play some gigs together. You know it's in their blood. I completely understood that, and they called me, and they said you want to join us in this and I said No. What I'm interested in is the creative process and. And if we were going to make some new music. I'm first in line for wanting to do that, but I don't want to go back out on the road. And so then said. Is it okay that we use the name the band I said? Of course it is I don't want to get in the way of somebody you know doing their thing and making a living, or whatever, so they did, and that's my side of the story, and then the book testimony that this documentary was you know very much inspired by. That's that's really you know my vision in and my way of remembering this and looking at it and all of that, so for my end of it there is absolutely no resentment, no nothing nothing except an appreciation of the amazing time that we have together now all these complaints that leave on made in his book in interviews and know it's not like. The movie doesn't included his feeling that somehow we should've gotten more songwriting credits for guests for the arrangements that they did because he he sometimes would actually say he wrote the songs and sometimes not. In different cases, but it seems like overall. It felt like he felt that four arrangements he would have should have gotten a certain amount of. How much was that ever brought up in the moment versus years later? If you know what I mean. Never. Yeah it was never ever talked about. Everybody knew how hard I worked on this, and it was way above, and beyond the call of duty, or what anybody else was doing, but I thought that was my job. That was what you know I was. Really I could bring to this thing, and that's the way it is. You know some people write songs and some people don't you know like? Ringo Starr didn't write songs..

"Your face on television right because basically you have an opportunity for nearly unlimited airtime and if you're trying to sell yourself that normally benefit like cuomo right now is I mean people are talking about. I think it might happen. The whole run but that guy has done so well with his airtime and just showing off his being seemingly capable or calming or whatever people like about him. He's done a very good job of showcasing himself just kind of being charismatic. And presidential which Biden's done the opposite of realizing Oh my God the more exposure I have the more exposed. I am people. Don't kiss and that's what's wild and in this climate. I don't think you can really just hide like that. It's not people WANNA see YOU UPFRONT. Showing off your capable. You can't do the you know the quiet hideaway thing right so I compared the thing that's going on with. Cuomo to what happened with Rudy Giuliani. Nine eleven And there's some loose comparison there where Ju- Giuliani just came out. He was there. He was hugging people. He gave a couple of press conferences about you know like we're going to be strong and Yada Yada Yada says things and everybody was like well mayor hero. He's the greatest he can. You know it's just something about in these times when people are scared. They rally to their of their leaders and This is is that on steroids. I mean this is a situation where everybody is pretty much trapped in their home. They're at home and every fucking day. There's a new press conference we're just sitting there. Were watching. You know like in our state. We're watching De Blasio the mayor and Cuomo the governor and then you watch trump and there and then everybody in whatever state you're in it's the same with your governor and he's coming and giving you updates and all this and then trump comes out and gives a speech with his task force behind him in the doctors and Mike Pence and all these people and so all of these politicians are just on your television speaking directly to the American people every single day and Joe Biden goes dark for five straight days and then when he comes out. He's giving these like horribly. You know just just you know like just ca like cratering into himself You know yeah that whole thing. Oh my God so weird is teleprompter goes out. And he doesn't know what the hell does say then. He gave an interview He gave the interview on. Msnbc where he just like collapsed into himself in some type of black hole or just. Yeah I don't know like in the like who does this and it is starting to seem to me like I don't know I. You Know Scott. Horton said this when he was on the show and I I was kind of like yeah maybe I can do need. They need sanders. I think to formally drop out because otherwise maybe there's like a claim that he's second in line but I think very close to win the real campaigning. Like ramps up. They're going to. There's going to be own announcement. Hey Biden's got dementia We didn't realize it was this aggressive option. They may not have dementia. They may say some other health issue or something. Like CUOMO's our guy. I mean if I were a Democrat right and I was saying this I was actually talking to my wife the other day and we were I was saying was like look if I were a democrat. And that's all I cared about was the Democrats taking back the Oval Office. I would be like we need to do whatever we can to get. Cuomo in there and Biden out we have to. That is the only option that we have right now. trump for sure. Maybe maybe in this environment. It's got a much better shot than Biden. No question about a much much better. Shot Than Biden does and you know and then I saw. It was like right after like an hour. After I was having this conversation with my wife I saw on twitter. That fucking Bill Marr tweeted out the same now. Okay it's just Bill Maher but bill Maher's like a pretty popular liberal and he's got you know like ten million twitter followers or something like that and he's tweeting out he's going. We need to fucking drop Biden and go with Cuomo. He made some baseball analogy like when a pitcher just doesn't have his stuff. You gotta tap him on the shoulder and be like you're out of here we're putting in the closer and so I mean who the hell knows what's going to happen what's code what's Komo's Kryptonite. Because I don't know enough about him. I do know that of New York. He's pulled some real shady shit that basically we run a crazy deficit that he just rolls over every year. Something gets like something really shady happens every January were like. I don't really know quite how they cook the books. But we are hugely financially insolvent Newark as a state and they pull some scam every year where they roll over some of the debt to the next year which means that like it kind of snowballs. Wherever you're carrying more of last year's dead I don't really know what the scheme I just. I just don't think I mean I I. I don't think this is going to be his KRYPTONITE. I mean how Donald Trump you're gonNA be looking at a two trillion dollar deficit for the first time in American history this year. How's he going to run against somebody saying what? What is the big dirt on Cuomo like we were able to. Kinda look at most these these guys right away and go all right Elizabeth. Warren doesn't have a chance to claim to be an Indian and she's Nasty Bernie Sanders. He's to Socialist Biden's too stupid. What's the CUOMO thing that trump will expose right away? You know I really don't know I think it certainly doesn't pop into mind as quickly as these other people. You know what I mean if you go down the list on every one of the Democratic candidates so far and it's just like right there it's so obvious in front of you I Dunno you know. Cuomo is the son of a former governor. Who is the governor? Now his brother is that CNN anchor. He's from very powerful family and I'm sure there's some dirt out there on them and maybe that'll come out more but I really. I don't know I don't know what trump's angle would be an and I kind of can tell what Cuomo's angle would be and Cuomo's been smart unlike the Blasios who's just been like like in a little bit of this but not like Blasi who comes out right away and it's just complaining about trump and just makes himself look so small and partisan cuomo kind of rose above that a little bit and he's done a good job of you know kind of Protecting creating his image Through this whole thing so I listen. I don't know how they would actually do that. The only way to do it is you'd have to go to go to the convention and have all of Biden's delegates throw their support behind Cuomo. It's not impossible. It could happen at work or it could be someone else theoretically but I'm just thinking more and more that I think the more people look remember we said We were saying this like months and months and months ago there were like. Oh my God. If Biden wins the nomination. It's going to be so entertaining watching the media. Pretend that there's nothing wrong with Joe Biden. It's gotten so bad that I don't think anybody can pretend this is a guy with one leg and telling everybody he's got two legs but you're sitting there looking at a stump you also. That's funny that's on the ever. Did you see a new claim against him for like got? It wasn't quite sexual assault but being a creep. It was from a former staffer. So it's a little nine. There was a a straight up sexual assault allegation that I just thought I was skimming. Vox Article and it's always interesting. How these things? It's always interesting. The timing on these things. 'cause you know that they've had these stories for a while and so. I don't know why they would start running with it now but I but even so we saw more of that kids sniffing after. He said he would never do it again. So that's GonNa be endless But it's going to be interesting. I guess too also maybe goes down on like sexual assault claims and then this is now the reason why we can't have them so you have. You've had several women something like eleven different women that have said that Joe Biden touched him inappropriately or some shit like that but there was this one chick who was a former staffer of his who came out and said that he like you. Know like forcibly Fingered her now. That's a good year. The article put that in the first part. I was getting four. They were talking about comments of Nice legs. Well I don't know I don't know if it was in I don't know if it was in the same article but this is this is a woman who's come achy. She recorded a podcast about it. It's been like you know a lot of people have been you know talking about it online Now again I don't know and I WANNA be. I WanNa make sure on the most consistent motherfucker you know here because that's what I do so I don't know like I always say with all of these wild accusations I don't know I I don't know if there's truth to it. I don't know that there's not truth to it. Maybe this is exactly what happened. Maybe it didn't happen at all. Maybe it happened somewhere in between what she's saying and reality who who the hell knows but I could say this. There's already way more evidence in this accusation than there ever was against Cavanaugh way more evidence because this was actually in fact a chick who was a staffer of his and like J- just that alone makes way more evidence. So you know I. It certainly is going to be something parade. Her in front of a hearing to talk about her creepy having this creepy death fingers up inside of you. God you thought the cavenaugh reaction was bad from that. You know we're looking chick. Just wait till you hear this story. Well it's IT'S GONNA BE. The the interesting thing is that it's going to be the big question about all of this stuff right is can Can Joe Biden get out the vote against Donald Trump and that that's really what the issue is because of course lots of people could say? I already hear the response being like well. Donald Trump was accused of x Y and Z by these women. So it's a wash or something like that But the issue here politically for Joe Biden is. Can HE GET OUT His base the Democratic Base. I saw one poll the other day that said that about fifteen percent of Bernie Sanders. Supporters are considering voting for trump and that's voting for trump. How batches not voting? You know that's GonNa be very tough Bernie Sanders supporters. Were getting super excited for their moment like they thought this guy was going to win. Look I thought Bernie. Sanders was going to win the nomination. I mean so I I I understand why they thought and now they have to come back to reality and go Arman not only do we not Bernie Sanders. But it's not like we're getting you know some other progressive were getting. Joe Biden you're getting the embodiment I mean. Just like Hillary Clinton it's the embodiment of what the democratic establishment has been for the last thirty plus years. That's what you're getting out of Joe Biden. And he's just not a lot of a lot more than vote for trump just aren't going to vote and then you go what what is what is the issues that have animated the left over the last few years. Well of course one big thing is is the democratic socialist stuff Throw into that category Medicare for all green new deal. All of these things. Joe Biden's bad on all of those issues and then what's the other big thing that's animated the left over the last few years?.

"Don't WANNA kill people in the Middle East and the same with with their mentality is like so you just WanNa do nothing. You just want and buy something they mean. The state has to take some type of action. And so. That's the kind of disconnect by the way I really I great time on there and I loved Jimmy Door. I really admire that guy. I think he's he's got balls for days and he's been right about so many of the most important issues over the last three years or so on his show so I've said many times on the podcast before that I admire that guy but it just seems like the. You're almost stuck in this mentality. It's the same with with the neo cons where the only a tool that we have is a hammer. And in that case it's the military taking military action and in this case it's the government taking some type of redistributive action. And if you're not for hammering nails then it's like well fuck it. You don't want to do anything and the truth is that I'm going like well. We're not precisely hammering in nails. We are knocking the wall down right now and the ceilings falling on us. And that's the and it's hard. I understand when you're in the middle of a crisis you want to think. What can we do right now? But you have to at a certain point and I feel like Libertarians. We're the only ones who ever talked this way about any of this stuff. At a certain point you have to realize what created this whole mess to begin with and fucking what you know like like. How did we get here? Let's stop doing that. I mean otherwise I would never solve these problems. I the way I kind of see it. Some people are optimistic that there's I guess. Some sort of an ideal government framework by which these goods and services can actually be distributed whereas you and I go. No they'll never be able to do that. We're like negative on that Allah. Like you can never do that. Your best bet is going to be on the free market and were more optimistic that the free market could actually distribute these things. I sent like similarly the way people panic about global warming. I go I don't really think it's much of a risk. I really think that we could solve some of those issues but then I get really nervous about dead and I go eight debts like the worst thing that will never get past it. It's just kind of different sensibilities for what we should be optimistic about But the government one being able to handle these things such as You beyond like I think it's just certifiably wrong. We're in this mess. Because of them especially on the healthcare side you just look at all the fucking laws of permits and who's allowed to give out care and what drugs are allowed to be tested and go market and all like there's so much red tape there that even at the outset of this thing just the testing which is the biggest bunch of everything. That was the government's fault so well you know I mean I I completely agree with you except I would just say. I don't even know if it's the biggest botch because there's other that are right up there like the fact. Is that the biggest problem with this crisis. Look is as much as it's sometimes kinda cold to talk about things in this way but if you just look at the number of depths that have come out from Corona Virus. This is actually nothing compared to other things that we face. I mean I was watching the news last night. with With my wife and they were like I saying Italy has now had ten thousand deaths and Due to the corona virus and this is a number that none of us can can handle a wrap our heads around and like man. I mean okay. It's terrible don't get me wrong but we lose what something like thirty to sixty thousand every year from the flu every year. So it's not as if this is some of deaths that are unprecedented like we've never seen anything like this before it's a nasty virus and it seems like people in the you know who are immune compromised or older can die from it but that's true for pretty much every nasty virus and there's a whole bunch of them out there and and other things you know Tiburcio close all these things that just kill a lot more people. So it's not that the issue seems to be to me that it's highly contagious. And that a percentage of people need to be hospitalized and we did not have the capacity in our hospitals to accommodate that many more people because we still have all the other things that we're used to dealing with people getting hospitalized for but all of a sudden there's way more people who need it and we don't have them so like Tom Woods said on the show last week he said Look Mir. You don't know how many hospital beds there should be in America. We can safely say three hundred million would-be too many and a thousand would be too little but we don't know exactly how many there are. But if you look around the country at these certificate of need laws and a bunch of other you know red tape that you can very comfortably say there would be more than there are now if we didn't have these restrictions. So what the number would. But there'd be more and we'd be way better of a prepared to accommodate the what we need right now and you definitely don't need all the hospital beds with those fancy settings they go up down and I'm sure these ventilators are all forty five sixty five or forty five. There's definitely cheaper options for all of these for like plan B when everyone needs it all at once. But they're not I don't know I guess I really think in way or planning it that way. Maybe they'll change. Yeah Well we'll say we'll say The the other thing That I would say that really I think and this is hard. I just think it's hard to get other people to appreciate us like something you were saying about the sensibilities of people and your mind set your own. Inner psychology like what personality type you are. Because the people like us have always cared about monetary policy and really focused on that as a main v very you know essentially important issue and a lot of people. Just don't they just doesn't whatever it is? It just doesn't register with them as something that they put a lot of like a Emotional you know chips into But I just think about you know the fact that we came off of the era of zero percent interest rates. You know from what was it. Something like seven full years of zero percent and then even after that the entire Obama administration was the lowest interest rates in the history of the country. And you go look at what affect that had on on saving rate now again. We don't know exactly what the savings rate would be if the interest rate was higher. But we know for sure it would be more that more people would have saved money if they were incentivized to do so then when they're completely incentivize not to save money and Think about a situation like this right now. The people who are screwed over the most are the ones who have nothing in savings. And so we've got the monetary policy has everything. Could I mean if you if you let's say that you your Your stated goal from two thousand eight to two thousand eighteen or whatever was not to save the economy or all of this other or whatever else they claim it was. Let's say you're stated goal was to destroy the Americans saver that the family savings individual savings in this country. If that was your goal and you're the Federal Reserve Chairman or you were the board of trustees at the Federal Reserve. You would have embarked on the exact same of policy that the exact same a policy that is this would be the best thing you could do to discourage people from saving and so. We did that whether that was the reason or not we in effect. That's what we did and now we find ourselves at a crisis where everything shut down and man. You could really use some savings but we did everything. We could to discourage that all right. Let's take a quick second and thank our sponsor for today's show which is the Ridge Wallet If you guys don't know about the Ridge. Wallet it's incredible. You have to ditch that old wallet that you have. It's it's your grandfather's wallet..

"The US against Spain and it was played in a soccer stadium and it was. I think I think it was the biggest crowd ever to watch a tennis match. At the time. It was half the size of this so I can't imagine part of. It's just watching a little ball in a soccer stadium. But I can't imagine how that played out. I mean be big screens. Only get you so far. Fifty one thousand people one venue to watch tennis interesting proposition. But I suppose that tells you something about Other fetters popularity. Yeah I mean. Exhibitions in general are so interesting. They we know that the players don't take them half a seriously as any major Asari But to your Point People Philip stadiums to come see them. Probably stand there or interactive with each other. Just as much as they wanna see them hit the ball across the net so it just again speaks to their their star power and just how much of an impact they have on the sport And just on a stage in general. I think that's the other interesting thing is how there's not too many players and other American sports that have such a global reach as tennis players do And that's that's always so interesting to me In comparing all the different sports is how how much people like veteran? A doll have such a a global worldwide impact. On so many different people and other sports would kill for that the NFL is still scratching your heads of in the NBA. The NBA is way ahead of other sites. But not nearly as much as the executive they've only sort of conquered a a small area And that's only a handful of players So it's very interesting I think No and I think tennis has a real edge. We sometimes forget this in the other. Sports are still trying to figure out how to globalize and Tennis's way ahead of the game All right we have We've another guest coming in February strange strange month for the sport and I do think we need to we.

"Use The code order at checkout guys. Let me introduce you see to my guest today. His name is Dr Ravi Kroger. He's a biologist who currently holds a position as the science coordinator for the Gulf coast ecosystem. Oh System Restoration Council. That's a handful but or mouthfuls should say but he's doing some amazing things in the restoration of the Gulf coast is also a professor Sir at Mississippi State University in the Department of Wildlife Fisheries and aquaculture But outside of that he founded this movement that we're GonNa talk about today called blood origins which is is aimed at sharing the why in the who behind hunting and where most shows focus on the sport and the ultimate kill nothing wrong with that This is a little different. Robbie set out to learn and understand who hunters are and why they do it. He's got some absolutely absolutely incredible films. We watched a a bunch while he was here at my home in in Maine The document these stories and share a site of hunting that. Maybe you've never seen before so I hope you enjoyed my conversation. Robbie Kroger Robbie. I'm excited have you in studio man. Yeah I've been I've been following you for a while now and knowing that I came on here and the kind of guests that that you've had on yeah I'm just super humbled. Well Yeah I mean. We've been trying to work this probably for a year. Maybe even longer. Yuck it is what we bumped into each other. What Western exploit last year? But we knew each other even prior to that you also I reached out to you and said can I give them content that with Braxton. Oh that's right. Yeah and just had him on the podcast. That's right and you said Yep absolutely. Here's his contact information. We have subsequently gone to Braxton Braxton amazing amazing guy and then we just kept in contact and I reached out to you and you had just become. You just started posting about hunting you. We'll just nascent stage of exploring this thing. That is hunting. I still feel like I'm at that. Stage have not advanced at all. Get to that point where you think you're the best instance tump to hang up the bow of never once thought that in my entire life about anything I've ever done a good job. That's how we started it and then we just kept talking talking then you might the big move up yet a man yeah and I was like well. We just need to get this lockdown. Need to make it happen. What we're glad you're here we We try added. Treat our guests with with some styles certainly wine and dine me. I'm drinking Jaakko right now in the last night that's right we don't mess around here. We're we're GONNA see that go. Does the origin Jaakko go does in the next five minutes or so. So you're talking about filming. You're talking about filming a mutual friend. Braxton McCoy McCoy Just just tell us real quickly what it is that you do. I know what you do. Obviously but I think it'd be really cool for you to give us an over cap and review. What it is that yours? You're doing so so I run. A project called the blood origins project not the blood orange magic just let origins project it is a very simple storytelling documentary platform foam showcase in the heart of hunters. you know. Your audience may not be they may be hunters in your audience that may be non hunters in the audience. And Yeah we have a good mix so you know I I would say even the people who are non hunters just through the exposure of of what I've been doing over the past couple years. And what you and other guests that have had on have done in the hunting world are at least intrigued right. They're not hunt right. They're not hunters. And so that's the whole point of the project is reaching out to that non-hunting base which essentially keeps lifestyle as Americans in place. The two hundred million American voting block. That says yes to hunting. Oh No don't and American hunters in America are less than four percent of the population so we have to do a job of is ensuring that we explain who we all right and so the project is I can boil it down to a simple statement. The project is showcasing the hot of the WHO of the hunting community Eh but also the heart of the why And so we films People's Stories we filmed people's there. Why why do you hunt and everyone has a story? That's the tagline that we use because everyone has a story. My short is unique to me on how I was raised. And what's essentially in my blood from hunting heritage perspective perspective and you may not have a single ounce of hunting heritage in your blood but that doesn't mean that you're not a hunter doesn't make you less of a hunter just means that your story is different right and I. I would argue that that all of us probably have in our blood at some stage right. I mean that that is our history right and sisterly. Saying I'm I'm really sure that's exactly who It's funny you say that one of the videos the second video that we just dropped in my narrative. I I said you know. This woman got bashed for hunting Leopard and my narrative. I say you know. She's getting backed full. What humanity was built on which is hunting right humankind excellent? I agree and the amount of comments that I've received on that post to say who's this jackass talking talking about what humanity was built on it. So what do you think humanity was right. How do you think we got to who we ought today? How do you think our brains vault? How do you think we learned to survive or it was through hunting? Why do people have such a hard time with that? I think that today's society is very very much disconnected from. You know who was supposed to be. I think that we have a an ignorant viewpoint out there on what hunting is and that is an. I'm GONNA be very blunt here and that that's probably a result of hunters not understanding or not portraying there why we have. We have created a bad rap for ourselves over the last twenty to thirty years. Sure it self-imposed. Yeah but sometimes you know I look at the hunting community and I know guys in in the in the arena if you owe who Want all the praise and notoriety and I also know hunters who go go out and do it because it's their way of life and they don't post about it they don't talk about it they don't take pictures they just do their thing. And do you feel like those guys have an obligation Asian to share like what what's your stance on that. If they're not interested in sharing you know what I mean. It's hard because we run to this. The squeaky wheel gets the grease rice. So these these guys are like hey this is my way of life. I just do the thing I mean. I kind of feel like if you don't share to some degree then you allow those. Who are? Are the the the vocal people change. Potentially your way of life because you weren't willing to get involved well if you if you're GONNA if you're GonNa Moan and Groan about it then you definitely definitely have to get involved. No doubt But you know there's a certain something to hunters being hunters for who they are. Aw I think social media today unfortunately is is the downfall of hunting a the fact that you you know the whole idea of a trophy picture. Somebody a smiling right hand glean Lee behind this animal. And that's all you post inside. Big Buck downs will. That's that's unfortunately what's giving NASA bad rap because somebody who doesn't understand hunting somebody who doesn't understand the context of hunting somebody who has never experienced what that means and the effort with that has gone into that one picture. We'll see that picture and go. Oh wow they're just smiling because they killed some right but there's I mean we know that there's so much more behind that smile but that's all they see but that's all they see the hunting community to today. I believe that we have a new tribe. Believe that we have a new wave wave of hunters and their narrative changing what hunting is being perceived. As some that. It's you can have a trophy shot. There's nothing wrong with the trophy shots but this is something wrong with not providing the context behind what the trophy shop means. I think there's this thing that that hunters Naturally believe that people understand it so for example. I've posted some pictures of me with the dead animal that I'm that I'm proud about right. Because has I've gone through the effort and the work of harvesting animal and setting out and accomplishing. What it is I wanted to do and I have comments like? Are you gonna eat that to me. Like that is an ignorant question. Because WH- of course like what. What else would you do with it? So what that signifies to me is. Is that individual any individual who that just has no idea and I don't use the word ignorance as as a A criticism well maybe criticism. But I'm not saying that in a negative way I'm using ignorance as it's intended. Meaning you just don't know and because you're so disconnected elected Rod. You need him. You're connected from your food source because you can go to the grocery store and pick up a package of beef right and there's nothing wrong with that and I know that society today that is election action that we have. It's not the society that we had sixty seventy years ago where you had to go hunt for your food. You can go to the grocery store and get your food. It's just a choice at hunters. It does make to say I prefer to know food came from. I prefer to know how that animal diaper. I know that that animal lived a life that was the best life that possibly could live and then I took the most ethically clean. Painless instantaneous shot Possibly take and you. You know the package look. I'm not being hypocritical. I go to the store get short. I think most hunters probably due to some degree. And it's just that's part of the last style of hunting I will say they'll tell you one step further the whole food aspect. The food argument is one that is used at lots in a rhetoric against hunting. What do you mean and so so we don't need me? Is that what you're saying. Is that what they know. It's more like don't you shouldn't be hunting unless it's full food. Only that's the rhetoric that is used a lot against us as I guess. I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around that. Like what. What else would you be hunting for? Oh are you talking about animals that you wouldn't consume or I would be or somebody having Iraq or something on their wall. Okay so for for instance. I didn't go to Australia to hunt Buffalo for the for the meat right so why not go to Australia right right. Shame on you exactly and so. I went to WHO Australia to hunt at buffalo because it was a way for me to get into a place to see a place to go and push Kushma body to a place that I know that it could go to experience and adventure beyond belief and somebody would say he will rob. You could do that without clooney animal and I said No. I couldn't because I wouldn't have gone out in traveled three days I wouldn't expended all this money I wouldn't have gone push myself into the back country of no way. Probably no white man has ever walked before to connect to this this primal. ooh That's inside of me to just go right in underwrite and look at things. This is great now right. I can do that in my backyard..

At how high up is it pretty high by yourself. Is it like a big area or just. It's pretty small small and its way up in a tree and it's very it's in the middle of a country in Europe and it's super random. Nothing you don't have to say so I I think Tom found it Coming behold he found it but we went there at super remote and just kind of magical and anytime still getting a bit much. I need go train in the tree house. I love that end in the tree. How long do you stay in the tree? Couple Days John Day and you can get up and down you. If you like. It'd be up in the.

"Light scenes. Yes let it caught wheels in a small confined space and is there a place that has huge impact on you. Yes I would say that I mean again. First thing that pops into mind the balcony like the Verandah at the house us. I grew up in which was in Crumlin Valley again on the Gold Coast. But it's like we lift in the hinterland so it's very mountainous but you've got also a fifteen minute drive to the beach kind of just a kind of magical place which of course I didn't I always knew as a magic place. I always loved it and then once I left Australia. Of course as I realized just how special that kind of space is but yeah I mean outhouse will let me say the balcony you mean like the Verandah like yeah. So I'd sit wasn't a very big house house and there's lots of us so I always sit out on the Veranda and have a cup of tea and do my homework guard. Do My homework at a trip down behind the back paddock. Yes always always outside and it was just like the most beautiful view you can see the ocean from there. But you're up in the mountains it'd be Mystique Just a so so so beautiful I I always yearn for that little spot sitting on the Veranda. Do you prefer to be in nature or in the city nature for sure but I've loved with being in the city. I mean when I moved to America when I was twenty and I go to job on Pan Am which you reprise very memorable and once upon a time at home I was so fun. When that's that's the amazing thing about Clinton to sorry totally jumped tracks but his attention to detail in his? He'd watched everything done before we met. And you know even neighbors even pant all of that even the screen test. Yeah he watched all. It's going to really with you. Yes Oh my goodness Causey and so these are really good. This is safe THERALAC. Daddy's really like Oreo. Every episode of Pan Am Pan. AM He'd watched a bunch of me is like Oh goodness please give me. The job obviously wasn't a very good actor back then but but no so. So there's a brief glimpse of Pan Am stewardess in once upon a time in Hollywood and that is me and you to dance and I got to dance. Well that's when I was being Sharon tate on the Pan Am plane but I actually played one of those pimp stewardesses. You just never saw my face. It's just my hands making a bloody Mary. Leo I think which is good news. uh-huh did you bring out your own costume or did they get you a new. It was a different. This was in once upon a time because it was later the latest sixties in the TV show Pan Am it was nineteen sixty three. So they'd have they changed. The uniform is different. So you're going to say when you move to America and the right right so yeah no I mean I was in a big city and I loved it. Yeah I love being in a big city but no I do prefer because I know you just an easier from time to time. Yeah I could get away the.

How do you anything come to mind? you know what man we had we had like a Bunch of Oil Well oiled up on cars and and we had a hanging forty feet of water so they'd have to jump from car to car with it. Being oil though in jumps were sketchy bro like so oh sketchy and that's the gnarliest thing ever seen our challenges have to do is on all the other stuff is pretty. You know it is what it is. Yeah harnesses you. It's scary but you're way way up there. We've had to do the q one Hour Australia and things like that but but this was super gnarly because Sir actually one of the guys got knocked out Leroy got knocked out doing because it was so scared she was like Nah because he will push off the car.

"robbie i" Discussed on The Frame
"From the Mon Broadcast Center at KPCC This is the frame. I'm John Horn today. Show the Toronto Film Festival is over wrapping up after festivals in Venice and telluride so how is award season now shaping up then I hang out with Robbie Robertson at his studio in West. La He shares the inspiration behind his latest record and recalls when his group the band played it with talk. They wanted the role of the they they wanted to get crazy and when we went played it was like somebody coming in doing him and we say farewell to. Rick case all that coming up on the frame the Toronto International Film Festival ended last Night Brett Threat Langa variety has been in Canada covering the influential festival and he joins me now so Brent which film won the coveted people's choice award winner the winner was Joe Joe Rabbit and I think a lot of people were pretty surprised that that was selected because coming out of Toronto the the reviews weren't that great they were pretty mixed and and there was a consensus that that Fox searchlight might have stumbled a bit out of the gate this morning it looks like they may actually have a really viable all awards contender this Taika. YTD's film about a young boy in Germany who thinks he wants to be a member of the Hitler Youth Brigade and his his assumptions about Hitler. Nazis are challenged. I was a big fan of the film but it was obviously incredibly polarizing but I think it does has proved that something can happen at Toronto that can be really beneficial for a film and I'm really thinking about Hustler's Laurine Skafar film with with Jennifer Lopez that opened this weekend. Did great business has attracted really good reviews. It really feels like Toronto helped launch that movie. Do you buy that theory. Absolutely I think what's interesting about Toronto is like unlike can or some of the other film festivals. There's a real populist undercurrent went and the people who are there really want to love films. You can sort of feel it in the audience when when people sit down there so rooting for the filmmaker and can Dan. It's you know it's the opposite you almost feel like they're almost excited to be able to throw tomatoes or beg or whatever at the screen so it's a very different feeling thing and I think that's often reflected and the kinds of movies like hustlers like Joe Joe Rabbit that are really embraced there and yet if a movie doesn't play well. Toronto is probably never going to play well anywhere and it feels like the Goldfinch is a good example of that. Oh boy yeah that one really stumbled out of the festival festival just huffing and puffing and weasing and indeed look at the box office less than three million dollar opening weekend. That was a film that just really collapsed. I'm going to ask you about a a couple of films that played other festivals including telluride. Two of these movies are from net flicks. The two popes and marriage story it does feel that unlike canton on Toronto welcomes movies made by streaming services how did marriage story and two popes come out of. Toronto bit came out looking like Oscar front runner and what's really interesting is Netflix is is starting to come into its own. I mean that sounds strange because it's not like they haven't had awards contenders in the past like Roma or mudbound. Those movies were almost acquisitions. These are more heard of netflix productions from from inception to to win. They actually make it to the big screen so I think you're seeing a much higher degree of quality and that's very important for Netflix because when you look ahead Disney pluses launching in a couple of months. You've got warner media launching a stream service. That's going to get a lot more competitive so they quality needs to be there and and they should be feeling much more confident after Toronto in January the Sundance Dance. Film Festival is a big market for movies that are made outside of the studio system. It felt like there wasn't that much action among sales. The agents at Toronto is that because there weren't that many movies for sale or people were looking at some of the films that sold at Sundance like late night and blinded by the light. That didn't do a lot of business where maybe a little more tentative. I think it's a bit of both I think there were plenty of films for sale. I'm not sure there were plenty of films the for sale that we're terribly cinematic and that scared off a lot of buyers and then I think a lot of people were also wary of of making the same mistakes is that some of the companies did it sense where they really overpaid for movies like blinded by the light like late night like unfortunately it appears. Brittany rents marathon the town is also going to be one of these movies that just have kind of iffy commercial prospects even if they play fantastic at a film festival and Toronto like other festivals Voles can help elevate films in terms of the awards raise but I also think they can start to separate films from the pack and I'm wondering about movies like Joker with Joaquin Phoenix or judy with Renee Zellweger or just mercy a Warner Brothers movie about the criminal justice system do films like that that come out of Toronto with a little bit of goodwill that maybe can help them succeed in a very crowded marketplace because he's outside of joker. These are not films that are part of any big franchise. I think that's really important for them to to emerge from the film festival with the with their profiles raised because it's so difficult to get attention if if you're not part of a pre existing franchise so if you're just mercy if you're a hustler so you need this kind of attention so you can break through one thing that I think is interesting. Though Oh is if you look at the reception of Joker at Toronto compared to the reception at Venice at Venice the reception was completely rhapsodic and well well. There were a lot of people who loved Joker at Toronto. I think people are very concerned about that movie. I think they're concerned about the kind of portrait of mental illness that portrays trays and the way that it deals with violence at a time when gun violence is such a social issue. I I expect that film to be extremely controversial when it opens and and there are probably other movies at Tronto that will be equally polarizing but when you think about crowd pleasers I think of a movie like Ford versus Ferrari a was there a movie that really struck you that surprised you that you came back from Toronto recommending to a lot of your friends and colleagues for me that that movie was waves which was filmed that on paper I was reading about and that sounded so just frankly depressing. I thought you know am I. GonNa be be able to sit through this. It's it's fairly late at night that the screening starts and and it was just electrifying the the way it was directed was so fresh and an innovative the performances were were really deeply moving and and I thought it had a lot of profound things to say about grief and tragedy that is the film from filmmaker trae Edward Scholtz whose last movie was a very scary film called. It comes at night Brett. Lang is the executive editor for film and Media at variety bred. Thanks for coming on the show. Thanks for having me coming up next on the frame Robbie Robertson from the band the band he's got a new record and a new documentary.
