"Have to take a minute to go over coin basis. Insane q one numbers. We've always even spending a lot of time here this week. On coin base. They announced the date of their ipo last week. And it is slated for april fourteenth. Now part of the reason they delayed their ipo until q two was so that they could release their q. One numbers and boy were they. Monster in total coin base has over fifty six million verified users. Compare that for example to robin hood's thirteen million active users went from two point. Eight million in q four two thousand twenty to six point one million in q one twenty twenty one trading volume in q one was three hundred and thirty five billion compared to one hundred ninety three billion for all of two thousand twenty and total assets on coin base went from ninety billion to two hundred twenty three billion a one hundred and fifty percent jump quarter over. Quarter the craziest part of that one. And certainly validation of the institutional narrative was that one hundred and twenty two million of that two hundred and twenty three billion overall came from institutions. Now the number that people were most focused on was revenue. Revenue was one point eight billion for the quarter compared to one point three billion for all of last year and something that will be absolutely shocking to wall street.

Has the Pandemic Resulted in the Death of Privacy?
"Last year. Around this time we talked with. Amy webb futurist and founder of the future today institute about how businesses might respond to the pandemic and how things might change in the future as a result of such a big direction. Changing event one thing. She was really clear on. Is that most likely. The pandemic would accelerate the death of privacy. And now amy webb says. Yep that definitely happened starting in school one of the interesting thing. That's things that has happened over the past twelve months that we've really relaxed some of our feelings about privacy and security for a lot of people who were able to send their kids back to school. Those schools required downloading an application and filling out. Pretty private details about your children that ranged from where you've traveled to whether or not somebody had symptoms all of. That's attached to that child's name and it gets uploaded and there was no choice if you want your kid to go to school. Got to download this app to your phone. Which by the way. There's a lot of other personally identifiable information. That's that's attached to it and it's not like these apps for sending purely anonymous data back and forth. We're going to have to reconcile that at some point. And i here's like another interesting set of connections that i can make about the past twelve months multiple times. We've been in situations whether it was the emergence of the corona virus or the insurrection on the capital or the craziness and volatility in the market as a result of game stop trading in previous years our government institutions and our regulators would have stepped in and they would have stepped in to to mitigate what was happening and instead we saw companies stepping in either to provide services that the government couldn't or to regulate in some way one of the things that we saw happen as a result of the virus was something that i call a c. it's like a diaz except companies so rather than it being a distributed. Denial of service gobert denial of service And it happened again again. And i think we are now on a path where we have to ask given what we've just seen over the past twelve months. What role in the future to our institutions. Play and what influence do companies actually have on society. That you know. Maybe they've had for a while but we haven't been willing to confront and does that mean for all of us going forward so fair to say examples of a see dos would be for example twitter banning president trump robin hood shutting down trading when things got really relatively game stop. Aws and yeah. I mean we can. We can rattle off at this point a pretty long list and again our governmental institutions in this country. Were not set up to move fast and break things. There's one way to look at this last year at this time and we talked the virus felt like it was emerging. The problem is that we. We'd like a four month lead time and there just wasn't any action taken so in a way Everybody kind of dragged their heels and failed to make decisions and contingency plans at every level and in every type of business in every school. There's nobody seemed to be prepared. Even though we were essentially watching a slow-motion explosion happening and then in the aftermath of that we saw you know. I don't know there's no other way to to phrase this. I mean we saw a government leadership that just didn't have the chops we had people running the show. That just didn't have the experience. And i think that created this vacuum for google and apple to step in and try to build contact tracing systems and a year later everyday people stepping up to build corona virus vaccine information websites. Because it's been so challenging and there was there was no direction whatsoever and in the interim we've got companies making decisions about whether or not to allow people to do their business or to say what they wanna say. I think there's been a really profound shift that everyday people will start to recognize. That hasn't an apparent yet because we've been dealing with the crisis from day to day

Understanding the GameStop Stock Market Drama
"Markets have been shaken again over the past two weeks as Reddit Day traders boosted shares of companies like game Stop. And sent short selling hedge funds running with long short funds losing 6% overall last month, and Melvin Capital alone, plummeting 53%. But most hedge funds emerged unscathed. And Steve Cohen's 0.72 even attracted $1.5 billion in new money. Here's sweet that Ramachandran, GAM investment manager, I assume hedge funds are probably reluctant to short small cap stocks right now, if the fear that the Reddit brigade might be behind those, But by early this week, game stops to the moon rally started to come back toward Earth, and not even the reddit flash mob or changes the top of the company. Could get the irrational exuberance going again reminding us why hedge funds and short sellers target companies like Gamestop investor that gets caught in the up dressed on that and doesn't understand that investing well, it looks like it's all going up to the person to click the last by understand that that could happen to them that quickly. That's former e trade financial CEO Carl Rossner. I ask Council on foreign relations senior fellow Sebastian Mallaby, if anything will fundamentally change. In the hedge fund world. I don't really, I mean, I think that hedge funds which of course, go back to the sixties, at least have proven to be an amazingly robust platform from which to think creatively about risk. Ondo. They adapt. You know they get new stuff yesterday in their ways when they began, there was no such thing as trading currencies because turned his world fixed it together one mark, it's hardly existed. You have to trade stocks by appointment on. They adapted all the way through that, As everything changed the authentic thea advent of reddit the advent of Robin Hood. This is just the latest iteration of the long, long history of financial innovation, and every time hedge funds figure it out. You also have regulators trying to figure it out as it were, after the fact we have the Treasure Secretary Janet Yellen now saying She's meeting with regulators, saying, We need to take a hard look at this about the volatility and whether this might actually put in jeopardy. Some investors. We also have hearings in Congress coming up. Do you expect there might be some tweaking, at least to the regulations? I think with respect to Robin Hood on the fact that it had to close down Access to trading on second stocks. That's the kind of market interruption which regulators order take action on. You need the infrastructure of trading to be reversed you, you know you need to look at the plumbing, and some regulators put it. And so the back part of the system will definitely because they're fresh. Look, What about on the short selling side? There have been proposals as you know, well for short, so staff to disclose their positions, individual positions, which is done is I understand in Europe. Do you think there might be a renewal of that call? And by the way, why do we have to disclose on the long side and not the short? I'm not sure, Actually, that hedge funds do disclose on the long side unless they buy more than Disposable fresh over believe it's 5% or something off the company so you could get away with a lot without disclosing. I think you know when you Taking a really big position. Probably there's it becomes a systemic threat to you. You know, you might blow up if that position where to go very badly wrong on so regulators to care about the soundness of the system ever all Have a legitimate interests, but I think it's more positions shouldn't have to be disclosed. But we certainly had some large hedge funds who took a big hit on. I wonder whether that did suggest it could be systemic risk here. Well, the beauty of hedge funds is that through their long history They've proven to be smart enough to fail. Not too big to fail, they actually can blow up and people often cite long term capital management in 1998 Aziz. The big exception actually, if you go back and look at that incident The New York Fed convened the banks to recapitalize them, but no taxpayer money. Zero went him. So freestanding hedge funds. I'm not counting here, the subsidiary of best stones that went wrong in a rage. Freestanding hedge funds have never had a taxpayer bailout mills in capital has not needed to taxpayer bailout. That's the good thing about hedge funds.
GameStop Reddit-rally sends Wall Street tumbling to its worst week in months
"In late January, a handful of unlikely Wall Street stocks began to skyrocket in value. It has led to big market volatility, and that will be the subject of a special meeting tomorrow with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and other government regulators. As Paul Solman reports, the spike in these stocks was driven. By an unconventional group of traders who banded together on a buying spree determined to take on the market for their own reasons. It is the latest in our economic Syriza's making sense. The frenzy. Obviously, this thesis is based largely on the fundamentals, Internet chatters hyping and buying stock and seemingly more a bun companies and you're right. It doesn't make any sense at all. AMC Bed, bath and beyond, and the bubble Gamestop crazy, and we're not as dominant as everyone thinks we are. We know what we're looking for. Is the regular Joes versus Wall ST Joe's using the free app Robin Hood to buy Gamestop, a money losing brick and mortar monger of video game disks that seems obsolete now that games are bought and downloaded online. And yet the stock skyrocketed last month, we're going to try to explain what's been happening with Alex Seamus from the University of Chicago Business School and my grandson show violas 17. So Alex set the scene for us What's been going on? There's people on this platform called Reddit, who decided to buy up a lot off the stock a lot of shares, partly because people hedge funds on Wall Street started short selling it. Okay, before we get into that, Joe, So I remember taking you to game stop when you were younger to buy you video games as kind of nostalgic appeal. Absolutely. And I think a lot of people my age in a little bit older grew up with Gamestop and I'm seeing a lot of people on platforms such as red It were saying isn't bye Bye Bye and Gamestop Two reasons one to make money, and the other was to stick it to the rich elite of the hedge funds. Hedge funds that have been betting against retro games stop by shorting its stock that is Now. In keeping with the retro theme, Alex suggested a retro product to visualize short selling. So here I've got an iPod, which I scrounged from somewhere in my basement, right, so on iPods kind of late game stop, it was very popular in the two thousands. And, you know it's not a bit obsolete because you know everybody's got music on their cell phones. So how do you short sell an iPod? So let's say I'm a hedge fund, and I think that the iPod is worth less than what it's being currently sold for. I go to you, Paul and I say, Can I borrow your iPod? So what I do is I sell the iPod that I just borrowed from you. And then buy it back for the future price. So if the price goes down, I make money because I'm basically getting the difference between that You just want me to lend it to you. I'm gonna borrow your your iPod. And I promise I'm gonna give you a little bit extra money whenever I return it. And to promise contractually to return my iPod by a certain date or whenever I ask for it back, So now you get wind of this short selling Joe. And what do you do? Okay. I grew up with this product. It's got a certain nostalgic value. I'm going to tell lots of my friends on social media may be read it to go out and buy iPod so we can all get in on the trend. What happens to you The hedge fund, Alex so because I Embedding that the price as actually going to go down in the future. If it ends up going up. I end up losing money because I have to buy it for Maura than what I sold it for initially and as you buy it, you're driving up the price even higher. Exactly, And that's what happened with game stop. $18 a share just last month. My grandson bought one share last Wednesday. And what price $293 I want to point out that I did not advise on this trade. I'm thinking that as more people are saying on social media that they're going to buy the value is going to go extremely high. Well is that I want to continue to stick it to the man, these people in Wall Street who have been running everything. And sure enough out on the street. I think it's great that rich people are losing money because capitalism is destroying this world. I look at the whole game stop with stocks is a revenge of the nerds. Kind of attack. This is one of the most complex attempts to coordinate on a single strategy that I think we've ever seen a sort of people's hedge fund says he must coordinating on the Reddit Forum. Wall Street bets. Urging one another to buy with rocket ship Emoji is which is to say, Look, this asset is going to keep going up so everybody should buy and toe hold with diamond hands. We are not going to break. We are going to keep the price up, and there's even a buy and hold sea shanty with diamond hands. They knew they profit if they could only hold But hold on most Wall Street. Hedge funds aren't short sellers. They bet on stock's going up. And in this case, some hedge funds have actually profited hugely from the so called revenge of the nerds, as have Robin Hood's paying customers, big investors, many of them hedge funds, who, by information from Robin Hood, about what people there are trading As for short sellers, are they bad actors? Sure, they bet against a parent losers like Gamestop, but also against frauds like the infamous end Ron, which short sellers helped take down nearly 20 years ago. By exposing its phony
Robinhood to allow buying fractional shares of GameStop, AMC
"But we start off with game stopped or game on check. Today's price action on wall. Street's hottest stock maybe one out of stock game. Stop gaining more than two percent while other heavily shorter names like costs. Amc and blackberry also posted gains robinhood easing trading restrictions today allowing users to buy fractional shares in game stop and amc but these socks are still down big for the week. So what is the current state of this read rebellion that has captured wall street's attention let's bring him back bassani so we got a couple of big questions for you number one here. Can we actually say that. The rebellion is over based on what we've seen over the past couple of days when we know that restrictions have still been in place on trading the stock. I found a the main is over. But it's found a level and. I think it's subsided. I mean just look at the the volatility today remarkably low and i know you mentioned restrictions but what restrictions there's someone robin hood but trade. It almost fifty million shares. I mean heck of a lot of people are trading robin woodstock. It's not a bunch of russian sitting out there so there's very few restrictions out there and i don't think that's a big inhibition for the stock right now has short interest. Come down enough to the point where we say that short-squeezes over we know that it's dropped significantly over the past week or so down by more than fifty percent or something like that but it's still pretty high. It's it's a moving target. I see different numbers every day. And it's actually fairly difficult to get a real accurate number. Clearly we can say it's way down. Now here's my bet. Bet see new shorts on this story coming in. I wouldn't be surprised if we gotta level at fifty percent and it stayed there for a long time because a lot of people still feel even ninety dollars this thing. This is ridiculously over-priced. There are plenty of people who had ten dollar bloat numbers on this just a few months ago. So it's a moving target. But i wouldn't be surprised if there were new shorts coming in in the weeks ahead last question we have for you tonight. Regulation where would it come from. Who would be the target. Yellen really being smart here. She's being a leader. She's going to channel all this energy and she just knows what she's doing. I'll tell you what the concern the street has is. This could morphine. Do some kind of broader investigation. So finra has always been there the regulators of the brokers finres already said. We're looking at game of vacation of trading that's a hornets nest because immediately you can start saying it's the site you have suitable for your investors. Do you have a balloons going off. Or when people make a trade you have hot trades of the day at the top with this induce people. Who would not normally make these trays to do that. And engage in behavior. That is not suitable for their type of investing. That's a real hornets nest. Melissa i know the sec is looking at mark manipulation. That's a different story. I think that's going to be a very tough case to prove. I'm not sure that what happened here with red confines with the normal indications of some kind of pump and dump operation. I think they're gonna have a hard time proving that particular one. Yeah thank you.
GameStop Stock Soars as Reddit Investors Take On Wall Street
"Ongoing drama with wall street hedge funds and a group of independent investors using platforms like discord and read it to organize and drive up share prices for companies like game stop so as a quick reminder. The sub reddit wall street bets took up the cause of buying shares of game stop in an effort to counteract how some hedge fund companies were attempting to short sell. That stock short-selling is when you borrow shares from somebody else a different investor and you sell those shares that are not yours market value. Then you hope the price goes down so you can swoop in and buy back. Those borrowed shares for less than what you sold them for and then return the borrowed shares to the person you borrowed them from and you get to pocket the difference. The internet crusaders are buying up stocks. Which makes the stock price go higher and that starts to pressure those investors and companies that were attempting to short the stock because the higher the stock price goes the more money those investors will lose when it comes time to buy back shares and return them to the parties that they borrowed them from the motivations for this action among these independent investors varies in ranges from those who are hoping they can get rich quick by jumping on trend those become like speculators to those who harbor a grudge against the hedge funds in general which typically represent the interests of people who are. Let me see. Let me check my notes here. Right filthy rich. Mike really filthy rich so a short squeeze is a way to really stick it to these funds. Which could stand to lose billions of dollars as a consequence in fact that has already happened with a couple of these hedge funds that have tried to cut their losses and get out before they saw even more money lost with a short sell the higher that market price the more money the short seller's are going to lose when it comes time to return that stock. There's no limit to how much money they can lose because the stock price can just keep going up up up. There's no there's no bottom there. However this all hinges on the investors being able to buy up those shares of game stop as those shares are hitting the market in order to keep this trend going and that's getting harder to do last thursday. The day of our last news episode in fact the mobile stocks trading up robin hood angered users when it put a temporary block on them preventing them from buying shares in various companies that the internet investors had targeted including game stop but also including some other companies like. Amc theaters They they can still sell stocks but they couldn't buy them now at one point. Robin hood had a buying ban on fifty different companies. Though as of monday february. I twenty twenty one. That list has been with old down to eight and yeah game. Stop is still on that list. The move prompted users to point out the inherent irony that accompany naming itself after the legendary character. Robin hood who literally robbed from the rich to give to the poor was preventing average investors. From you know doing the equivalent action in the modern day through the stock market investors have filed numerous lawsuits. Like more than thirty of them at the federal level against the company at the heart of the issue is what led robin hood to level that ban on users. It doesn't help robin hood case that. Among sources of revenue is a hedge fund called citadel leading some speculate. That robin hood was facing pressure from revenue sources. That stood to lose a lot of money if they were caught. Up in a short squeeze citadel for its part denies that it played any role in robin hood's decision making this is building into a pretty compelling narrative that may or may not be realistic and the narrative goes like this hedge funds are attempting to short sell companies aren't just betting that those companies shares are going to drop in price these hedge funds according to the narrative actively campaign for that to happen so in other words. The independence the investors on the sub. Reddit in wall street. Bats are saying that these big hedge funds are using leverage and market forces to help companies fail and then they reap in rewards through this short-selling practice. These companies may or may not have failed on their own but the story that the investors are telling is at the hedge funds are working to cause companies to fail with only an eye on prophet and no care about the consequences of failed company brings along with it including the consequences to that company's employees and its customers and so turning a short sell around on these hedge funds is being portrayed within these communities as an act of heroism that buying up. the stock isn't meant to be away to turn these investors into wealthy people. You're not supposed to be buying it to make money but rather as a way to act as a check on these hedge funds so they can't set out to harm these companies just for profit.

"Infrastructure Comeback. This later out. Rogan's death his Katrina by female cousin his actual death. Yeah that's that's not definitely not in this version of the movie. In fact I don't really remember it in many of the other film adaptations of the story. In fact I don't really remember much of robinhood having a family usually. It's he's on his own now. And that's part of the reason why he's turned us right in the Robin and Marian so before Congress they do they take the guessing nobody basically confronting every evil well and yet another another common trope that I seen a lot of robinhood movies I want to ask about. His robinhood always comes to the rescue in the always comes the rescue of you. There's this consistent theme and that's why I'm curious about it. 'cause it's a theme that I've seen a lot of the Robin Hood movies As well as in Prince of thieves Robin Hood comes to the rescue of people right before their hanged and in doing so he shoots the rope yes right and in this case it's a little Johnson Wolff who's being hanged but in other versions versions of the story and other film adaptations. It's other people being hang but it's almost always somebody being paying for something and he comes and shoots the rope. How accurate is the idea? That Robin Hood rescues people from execution. Their original stories is that say the original story so that goes and rescues. He's not as satisfied. Franklin and Revenue South is rescued as well from business nauseam by listen to some of these stories of the sink and it makes you excited as possible loss plus moment but it's also fair trade and other Medieval Taus Twelve L. to Muscat it's rescue comrades from the gallows in terms of politics. In case at the time some excuses was stopped when the public protested protested about them started chanting or shouting condemn mango and youth overseas smashing released a personnel could snappy to fill a breakdown in authorities. Party's trust examples of one case. Get to training actually helped the guys to escape involve and they've was the bus crisci stories to hangman was Golden Hung Yourselves Watch. That's not one of those feel good stories in the National Investment Trust. The bus to life is very much standard stories and uncool expect to beat awakes high-drama and the stories are and tank title. Signed a one off the exciting tractor quite often when you put it that way that makes perfect sense something along those lines. He's in Prince of thieves in particular. Because I thought that movie was a little bit different than some of the other Robin Hood films that I've seen in that in Prince of thieves we don't see Allot of his marksmanship being put on display until he starts at rescuing each shoots the rope of course but in other ones. We've seen like where Robin Hood splits splits into Aero- in half and then of course in this one we do end up. Seeing him should rope so we get the idea that he's great marksmanship. There was a quote quote that from the movie that I believe it was. Will Scarlet where Robin tells will that. There's something it's too dangerous for him him and will reply while so. Is your aim with the idea. That may be Robin Hood is not that great of a marksman in this version of it. But what do we know about Robin hoods archery skills original stories on Jon Patch Autry competitions at any time. They wouldn't excuse to a place they'll arrange for international competition and broken shows his prowess the competition. The book the phone catches this story also shows but MRS doesn't make up those times when he does so. There's a kind of muffles band turn back slapping and making fun of him and not type of thing because he's actually miss something so the skill of Robin and his men John is very much say in stories and this isn't surprising. The training of men an attack land like size onto the Tough Century Statutes Winchester in thirteenth century. Seven has equipment does not to practice. So that's not unusual won't put me does especially in Detroit. Original stories is spending the warmed when they asked to Talkin spit it and he does an times. He spits warm three times now.

"Hello and welcome to based on a true story on today's episode. We're going to learn more about the movie. Robin Hood Prince of Thieves. The story of Robin Hood is one. That's been in a number of different films over the years but there are almost always some some common threads that tie them together. The idea of a heroic outlaw character who steals from the rich and gives to the poor to help us take a historical. Look at the legend of Robinhood. I'm excited to be joined by historian. Dr Sean mcglynn. His book is called Robin Hood. A true legend and it takes a very historical stoorikhel. Look at the legendary outlaw. Before we get Sean on the line though let's set up our game two trues ally. Here's how it works. I'm about to say three things. Two of them are true. Which means one of them is ally? Are you ready. Okay here. They are number one Robin Robin Hood's hideout was not anything like what we see in the movie number two. The legends of robinhood were more brutal than a lot of the movie. Movie adaptations number three. We know who the real person was. Who Inspired Robin Hood Got Him? Okay now as you're listening listening to our story today your challenge is to find the two facts scattered somewhere throughout the episode and then by a simple process of elimination. You'll be able to find out which one is the lie. And of course we'll do a recap at the end of the episode to see how well you did all right now. It's time to get Sean on the line to chat about the history behind the movie. Robin Hood Prince Thieves before we dive into some details about the legend of Robin Hood from an Overall Perspective of the movie. What did you think about Robin Hood Prince of thieves I felt it was an staining fill a Senate two or three times now It's a good. Hollywood is a story and I tend to have a day off when I wish feels flight just off for this podcast. I tied into the field. They are so I'm not looking like historians to brave Hof or else it find. Finding best role is wrong. I just watched the film to enjoy if it were a documentary. And it'd be a different thing isn't it isn't on lesson listen 'cause that's a great perspective to take kind of take a day off and just enjoy it for entertainment. Almost an emotion is very good. Well let's put you back on the clock here because I want to dive into some of the details. I'd like to start with the idea of Robin of Loxley abandoning his honest. Honest ways to become an outlaw. Now kind of set up the context the way the movie explains it. That happens in the movie. Robin returns home from being imprisoned and and guy gets bins. Soldiers Chase down a young boy for killing one of Prince John's dear. Basically we get the idea that hunting is illegal. And they're willing in to kill a young boy for hunting deer and then Robin returns to Loxley Castle with Morgan Freeman's character Azeem and he finds that it's burned burns and his family's hung after his father is charged for devil worship their servant kind of explains all this Dunkin and he says that it was done by guy gives it's been and the sheriff of Nottingham after they took all of Loxley land so that was kind of how the movie explains why Loxley turned turned from his honest ways and and kind of went into becoming outlawed. Do we know if any of that it was accurate. Really to the the thing about Robin Hood pretending a legendary forgot based on a real life character. The all these interpretations versions of problems especially Lights luxy one thank centuries after V robinhood engines to route in medieval lenient comes four centuries afterwards which is an enormous amount of time and basically by this stage all robinhood merryman stock characters which prices can use their creative output Loxley story and Nope uh-huh nobility demand. Everything is Tony fictitious made up. It's much more likely that womanhood existed into such was going to be a professional fate. said the lock story is entirely fabricated. It's just based on conjecture On facts was Loxley a real place though that they based on on or was that. Just all completely fictional. Yes says Loxley in your chair Loxley and worksheets to different countries. So we can't even identify place. Something will probably come to later. Purposeful Shell with forest as well as uh-huh setting so yes that's what they have really. So some pyrite in sixty nine hundred says this is about the out of Huntington Robin Moxley and fast becomes Belka because propel Pirot audience. The printing press these become then established fabulous and play unjust. What show MINGKA's turn to Rice Pot? So Roxy Story is the same official creation Tali that will kind of segway into another major thing that we're all familiar with as far as Robin Hood is concerned earned and again the movie explains this part of it. Where basically he's stealing from the rich and giving to the poor in this version of the legend and we see Robin and Azeem? Of course they're trying to cross a river in Sherwood forest and they get stopped by a band of outlaws. As some of these names were familiar with From the legend of robinhood will scarlet much Little John or Jon Little we kind of get both versions of that there. And then we see Robin Hood. Cousins version of robinhood joins their band of outlaws. And he said something to the effect of I I think it was like a man. Defending his home is better than ten hired soldiers but then soon after this is when we start to see what we're all familiar with Robin Hood. Good stealing from rich folks passing through Sherwood forest and giving them to the poor villagers who then start praising the name of robinhood Kevin Hood. How about that part of the Robin Hood? Legend was there any reality to Robin Hood stealing from the rich and giving to the poor like we see in the movie actually as the fairly stories and if we go to the cows surprised by stem from about four hundred fifty they're off in the furry loss line of upbeat note lying says and he did. Pullman Coleman much good that's all we have to that stage natioinalist reference to it but in fifteen twenty one a Scottish chronicler code. John Major major talks about Robin Hood and gone who brought the Ristau Pool semi fifteen twenty. One is actually Britian about in cocoa. As if in fact the fusses to fifty is an about it a fictional artistic creation There's just a brief stop refreshments to it. Senator is an editor only. Think about it. If you are an outdoor you want to buy goodwill allegiance of the NECA population to violent anti. I'm sorry to say is not your thirties and it is interesting. How many criminals even ask recent times a night as Robin Hood's in the area they have all these financial schemes to help inform people around them so it makes sense as well as having some slim of the fact that does make sense? I hadn't thought about it that way of. Just it's in the movie in in Robin Hood Legend kind of overall. I've always got the impression that he's doing it. Because he's he's a good guy right even though. He's an outlaw. He's always cast as the good guy in. So he's he's given to the poor because even Robin Robin of Loxley was anything but poor but we kind of get the sense that he's a man of the people in in that aspect. But I hadn't thought about that. It makes sense from an outlaws perspective. Effective to have somebody on your side of the people is not going to be the law. Absolutely so and you all profit side over Reason to keep quiet about these things AS Roma's an eventful ties because he's taken the the original robinhood surviving material. Is a middle costs here. He's one of the yeomanry causes an S. discussions quite convincing. Who Vincent suggestions that he was designed to be a middlekauff here much in office has and the like who was nice and the new ability to control the glory and to change the night in phenomenal China varnish wholesome rescuing the Damsel alone ADMITS AW Christ earlier down the social scale into middle classes so the young pope makes sense not expected as well so the middle class out nor should be considered white collect criminal. Well I'm curious about kind of the other side of this story now because because rather than from robinhood perspective at least as far as the movie is concerned we start to very quickly get the sense that the bad guys are those in charge. I mentioned earlier.

I mean laundry minster was the closest they got to a noble all day. If you didn't have money he probably knew stuff so to dinner. Robin shrugged Shir now. Robin and his merry men didn't take from the poor anymore. But they did have loopholes one of which was that they would invite some wealthy looking person to dinner and then ask them to split the bill on a dinner they were invited to in the hideout the implication being well if they didn't helpfully contribute that it would not go well for them. The outlaws probably justified it because they were offering goods in exchange for cash. But really it's just robbery with extra steps when the fully armed guys surround you in the media forest suggesting that you go to dinner with them. I guess he do it. I mean don't do it in real life.

He Knew Ellen better than anyone in the world if she marries Sir Stephen Her Heart we'll break and she will die he buried. His crying is in his hands. He couldn't say anymore. Well I'm convinced Robbins said what you are will scarlet asked Robin nodded. Yup they wouldn't stand in the way of love and they wouldn't let a young woman die.

Also, probably didn't help that Errol Flynn was married to critise his former wife lily Dhamija, James Cagney was the studio's original choice for Robin Hood. However when Cagney walked off set the film's producer Hal Wallis made the decision to cast aero Flynn instead against the studios wishes. It was also Wallace's decision to keep made Marian. When the original script writer wanted to dump her character from the script together. Wallace felt Marian was an indispensable fixture of robinhood advice. After the, sir. Joseph oak called the gallows oak in the film where Robin Hood forms his outlaw band was supposedly the largest living oak tree in the world. At the time of filming in nineteen thirty seven the rock that aero Flint stands on in front of the tree is a prop. And the oak was felled by lightning in nineteen seventy nine and only then was it discovered that it was actually two oak. Trees estimated to be one hundred twenty five years old that had fused together over time. And while we're talking about plant life, although shot in California, indigenous English plants were added, and the grass was painted to give a greener more English look to the background while filming Robin hoods escape from the castle. Basil Rathbone was knocked down and trampled by extras causing a spear wound in his right foot that required eight stitches to close out the stunt players.

Many sources say Flint was less than dedicated to the task and relied more on his innate athletic ability in this area.

Fencing techniques that would not have actually been developed until decades later when the adventures of Robin Hood was screened for preview audiences the preview audiences reaction was so positive that.

So he Chris I am an he says, I'm a hobbyist Archer not a great one. But he was a skilled extra in king. Offer sounds like he's pretty good. He says, no, right. But I bet he's shit haw. Yeah. Right. But apparently, so it's the one with the dude from sons of anarchy see N channel. Yes. Selley Honam was in that era, and even the only trusted with CGI darrow's, golden expeditious. And that will like he's you fight bow. You don't get any errors just pretend to wait. Wait you've been doing this fees. But he had just that's only because you've got up holding an arrow status. So a few years ago. Apparently there was a viral hit with a Danish. Aren't you doing flips jumping around shooting two hours at once he claimed to have discovered a lost form of Autry, which is more effective and more historic arts. What do you mean where did he doesn't Cy? But apparently had an it isn't like he would just he was like. The book like what are you? What do you mean? We'll have to look into this.

I'm all about but a known was doing flips. And. Why? Because people didn't want to do a flip. Because if you shout at you, you just couldn't walk forever. He's exactly then. Yeah. But apparently this guy consulted on the robot hood Phil tricks limits. There's a lot of flippant intriguing but also like. The a lot of this arrow stuff in robinhood was basically just Hawkeye in. Yeah. In the event is there's a lot of jumping off a roof while firing an arrow lot of on a whole sparring and Eric. Barring an hour. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What did he say about this? Go on set doesn't say, but this is this normal king. Yes. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. What I'm curious as to like this expert who discovered this ancient art, and we look into them.

Apparently, this this Dinesh is apparently he's attempted another viral video where he shoots people at point blank. In an attempt to do the William tell legend, we shoot an arrow can apple off the head guy. So to apparently a lot of real world. Like you've crossed the line. He might that's not cool. That's a cool thing to do. Because it's like because apparently when again like we were saying whenever an auto movie comes out with Autry or viral video Autry, everybody's like I could do that broad kind of thing. Right. Was on the Wikipedia and a video posted in YouTube in two thousand seventeen Anderson demonstrators ability to shoot arrows that turn in mid flight. While some expeditious climbed that his methods around the good for short Ryan shooting. Imagine that he's controversial. But apparently because of this some people have called for boycott of Robin Hood. Donate soon enough. He sits right now. The boycotts was successful. I guess it was. Yeah. Yeah. Absolutely cry guy.

"robin hood" Discussed on Double Toasted
"Let this go. No, it's it's an when you look at something that's bad. When they tried to do Robin Hood, this movie called what that movie didn't do in that is that twenty ten Robin Hood because this thing took yourself. So seriously that they were trying to make a stroke of documentary almost like they try to act like Robin Hood, really happened. It's like man this shit is fake or trying to make this bet real where you take the fun out of it. And I will say that this movie, at least is there were actual scenes where it was where it actually was fun the action. Sometimes it went a little bit overboard. They even even seem they're running on a on a wooden catwalk. And they want the horse to run faster and somebody actually shot the horse in the ass. You know? So they try to keep things going and moving fast and have it in the first one in the Kevin Costner book. That's the whole the whole time. I'm thinking these people on horseback. Just shoot the damn horse. And actually somebody say. Times in the movie with us shoot the guy on top of the horse and the horse just goes flyer. Yeah. Like like, it's a car, and it just exploded. I think a horse exploded one time they shot it. You know, there was one horse or even had that superheroes. Slow MO moment. Like. But yeah, you know. The problem with the movie want it does capture fun and certain parts. The reason why doesn't work all the way through is that in trying to modernize it and try to pill to a more youthful audience. They are trying to compete with superhero films. And because of that it misses out on the essence that makes the original story of robinhood, the legend of Robin Hood, so timelessness so charming. The captured that with one person in the movie Taryn Edgerton, but it just doesn't apply to the rest of the film on giving us low rental. I mean, if you saw because if you actually saw this on TV it would be an excellent is going to give a rental, they even low rental because if you saw this on TV you would think that you will watching the CW show. In zonal. Yes. Oh, really? Yeah. You probably be entertained by some things, it's not bad. But it's I mean is bad. But it's not horrible something I watch and actually entertained by at home. So. Yeah, you might think oh the aero go back in time or something. But no. I think that for the most part I agree with you like it's it's bad but it's enjoyable. It's not boring. No, you know for flags cooler. Wonderful. It's not. Not say go watch the. If you catch it watch, why are you taking this year? In a homeless man being pretentious on your ass. But. It. It's an enjoyable time for if if you've got nothing to do like like I said if it's a rental. It's a good home run. So if you're gonna to it finally get terminally. You're going to watch any way out like Like, I be. they sound like it actually hurts you to say these words. Okay. So are you sticking with that Reynolds then? Yeah. It's all right, man, smoking for people for people that, you know, have let ability. You know, you don't have a life. No. It's a rental if you pull this up on Netflix, or whatever. Okay.
