"And I think probably the traditional kind of accolades or requirements to be considered a great person. We'll just become different. But this idea of a fascination with someone and then this person not living up to the myth that we all create together, I mean, that's before 2020. That's like a tale as old as time. It's just kind of the different ways that it happens and are different expectations and standards. And interests. I think what has changed, and it's easy to draw parallels in the world of film. And I think even on this show, there's a challenge to discussing Woody Allen or Roman Polanski or Kevin Spacey or any number of people who have participated in the world of movies or have made great art in the world of movies. Or we have celebrated in the past, but have pulled back from talking about because we were having a hard time rationalizing putting those people on a pedestal in the face of what they've been accused of, or even in some cases what they've been convicted of. And it is really difficult. But for the most part, I think you're right that there is a generation of people who have been grandfathered in. And if they're people in the past hundred years of movies, if they're transgressions, we're not on the level of crime, but we're on the level of racism or misogyny, like John Wayne's an interesting character, I think, in the history of movies. And what he represents to people. John Wayne's not getting quote unquote canceled. I think actually people just accept that there is a kind of imperfection to his hero standing. And maybe over time, people will celebrate John Wayne less and less, but that that's not going to change. But if a new John wing comes along and we learn quickly that that new John Wayne is a racist or is a misogynist or what have you, that person is not going to be able to be elevated in this way.

"As featured in Silence of the Lambs. I can't wait to. Retain this same time you learn who you take. You take a sense of I got a lot of stories about that song, though, Greg. Yeah, well, I remember you you mentioned this a years ago. Years ago, it went back and YouTube that scene. You are absolutely right. I mean, it really plays well in that particular scene. Really creepy. I want to go to speaking of creepy scenes. Rosemary's baby. The 1968 movie. It's really a terrifying movie. And it is made all the more terrifying by the acting that Mia Farrow does. And then Mia is the voice on this particular song. The soundtrack was written by a Polish jazz pianist and composer. Christophe komeda. He made one of the most important European jazz albums in 1965, and collaborate with Roman Polanski, the director of this movie, on a number of films. This is probably his most famous soundtrack, though. For good reason. He basically out of harpsichords and ethereal orchestration built this monument to just great creepy horror movies with the rosemary's baby main title theme. And then layering over the top Mia Farrow's voice. So you get this sort of childlike voice over the top of this kind of very creepy orchestration. And it's a lullaby. It's a song you would sing to lull a child to sleep, and yet it has this creepy undertow, which is basically the whole movie. You've got to get this constant sense of something really horrible. And the resonances that film has taken on, given Roman Polanski's wife, Sharon Tate, being murdered by a Manson Family, and the horrible me too accusations against Polanski. Absolutely. There are layers upon layers upon layers of that movie and the music contributes. Absolutely. And again, point back to cometa as the real hero here because he was an amazing musician who died young, but left behind an incredible body of work. He died in 1969 at age 37, so a number of serious losses then during that era. But here's the amazing rosemary's baby main title from 1968 on sound opinions. Rosemary's baby, the main theme Christophe komeda is the composer go seek out his work ASAP. If you haven't done it already. Greg,

"We don't know how much money he's making off that advice. Is that right, Steve? That's right, Charlie. And in fact, if you look at what's happening in Israel, you know, in Israel, they were one of the most vaccinated countries on earth. Now, and they had close to 98%. I think at one point, in terms of compliance with the vaccination, do you have any idea what the vaccination compliance is today, Charlie? I think it's gone down dramatically, hasn't it? 2.4%, wow. Virtually nobody in Israel is complying with what the government is telling them. You went from nearly a 100% compliance to now only 2.4% of the population in Israel is currently considered to be vaccinated by the government's own standards. 2.4%. 98% of the people in Israel are saying no to the vaccination, meaning that all of their privileges can be cut off and they're treated as, well, you're on an unvaccinated pariah. In other words, 2.4% of the people are saying, hey, you know, we're vaccinated, and we are going to disenfranchise the 98% of the Israeli population who is refusing to get updated to the vaccine. Now, if you look at the science behind the updates in the U.S., that it's a two variant vaccine that you get. One for the Wuhan strain and the other one is for the omicron strain. Now, the omicron resistance that you get. In other words, the antibody is that there are produced are variable. There are factor of 70 difference in the 8 mice that they injected. Which is a huge difference. In other words, it's very, very unreliable in producing antibodies against omicron. But how effective were those antibodies against omicron? Every single one of the 8 mice that were given omicron that were challenged with omicron ended up being infected with omicron. In other words, the study that they did with the 8 mice showed that the vaccine was completely ineffective. A 100% ineffective, 0% efficacy in protecting people against getting the infection, whereas in the original vaccines against the Wuhan strain, they claimed, oh, it would reduce infections by 95%. That's what the trials show. Now when the trial show that the infection reduction is zero, they say approved. It's a rubber stamp, and they didn't even go to the outside committees to get their opinion on it. It was so obvious to them that the drug didn't have any clinical benefit at all, and therefore the FDA approved it without even going to the outside committee. And so you're going to be required to get that double vaccination by your employer by the government, whatever pony is going to get even richer as long as he remains at NIAID. And of course, this is why he was planning on remaining for a long time, but I think he's realizing that once the Senate turns over, that's right. He could be in deep trouble. And I think that's why he's running for the hills and he'll probably be really hard to find in an undisclosed location. Yeah. Here's my prediction for Anthony Fauci. He buys a villa in the South of France and gets French citizenship because he knows that France doesn't extradite their own citizens to America. What was the name of that movie guy? Roman Polanski. Roman Polanski was accused of raping a teenager and we've never seen him ever since, even though he's an American. He's French as well, so he's lived out his days there. Something tells me that Tony Fauci might have a similar future. Thank you so much. Appreciate it. Steve kersh phenomenal. You're welcome back any time. Thank you. Thanks, Charlie. Thank you.

"I think a lot of the times when I was being taught Shakespeare and things, again, they would put on a film because that's how you do it. They're like, oh, well, watch your film. Well, you'll only see certain bits, but we'll watch. Well, watch Roman Polanski's Macbeth. And I was like, and I was like, okay. All right. All the Macbeth. That's the one, huh?

And so someone on his own or her own, I don't remember, brought up Shakespeare and I was like, hey, I know a Shakespearean actor. So, because they were like, what's the point of this? So I was like, well, let me ask. I love that you were all in, I really appreciated it. Absolutely. And in fact, because I spend so much time considering, I don't want to rush it.

"Cha cha real smooth, which I saw at Sundance. Hopefully we'll talk to Cooper on the show. Cooper's great, obviously. Very smart. I think part of what people like me like about him is he just kind of feels like Richard linklater or Sophia Coppola. And so it's like, he's kind of doing something that we've already seen before. And similarly, like Emma seligman, if you watch her first movie, it feels like this weird combination of Elaine May, Woody Allen ish, comedy, mixed with this sort of like Roman Polanski, Daario argento, like anxiety, horror, and so that's also very familiar stuff. And so we're looking for familiar stuff in young people so that they confirm or reaffirm our taste in our point of view from our generation, I haven't seen a movie yet that I would say is like indisputably Gen Z. Partially because I don't know what that is. I mean, you and I get along great. We talk all the time. You're not even in Gen Z and I'm like Bobby is a lot younger than me. He's having a very different world experience than I am. So I probably just need to get to know more people who are 23 to understand. I'm sure there are films out there. I would love to hear about films from young filmmakers. The truth is that young people are not entrusted with the kind of money that is needed to make movies. And it's films are more DIY than they ever have been. You can make a movie on your phone, yada, yada, yada, but even still, it's hard for people to get things going until they get into their mid late 20s because people who work at movie studios or film financiers are producers, don't trust young people to do anything right. I know this from experience. I've worked in corporate media for 20 years. They don't trust young people. They don't think they know what they're doing. And so it takes a little bit longer for those people to get the opportunities that they deserve to make the films that they want to make. And frankly, a lot of the people who are heroes on this show didn't start making their movies until they're 28, 29, 30, 31, 32. Soderbergh, Tarantino, all these people, they had to wait. They had to wait years and years and I think a lot of people, there's probably someone listening right now who's like, I'm waiting, but in 5 years I'm.

How Long Before Will Smith Escapes?

"Listen, I don't care what you think. This whole thing is going to end. You'll see, this marriage is going to end. The kids are old enough now. The kids are both all enough now that Will Smith can make his escape and still find another woman ten years younger than Jada and be happy. Or maybe keep it jaded and say, I don't really care about the age, he finds another woman that makes him happy. You know, when there's no love being served at the table, how long do you still sit at the table, especially when your wife is humiliating you and castrating you in public constantly, bro? You know, I think if Will Smith wants to not compound the fact that he has become an international embarrassment and a pariah in Hollywood on top of that. I mean, he'll work again because he makes too much money in the industry, but they're not going to keep your hands off him for long, but you know, they're staying away for now. And a lot of people in the business are saying, hey, take his Oscar way. But, you know, if you haven't taken Harvey Weinstein's Oscar way or Roman Polanski, you can't take Will Smith's way for a smack. It was a bad look. The worst look is all black production team didn't escort him out. Well, didn't sit down and talk to him and take him in the back and comb off and just skip his Oscar. I mean, I know it's a big Oscar, but like, hey man, we gotta think about this. They look ridiculous. Condoning the big assault in public and handing him his Oscar and then he'll make a big speech about how he serves God and all his bullshit. Oh, please, man. The whole thing's gonna end. The kids are old enough, Will Smith, get the hell out of the house, you have plenty more homes for about $400 million, but he's gonna have to make a break from Jada, even if they are secret scientologists. There's still ways he can do this without losing too much face.

"All right, everybody. Let's get into this. Okay. No issued a public apology to Chris Rock last night saying my behavior at last night's Academy Awards was unacceptable and inexcusable. Jokes at my expense are a part of my job. But a joke about Jada's medical condition was too much for me to bear and I reacted emotionally. I would like to apologize to you, Chris. I was out of line and I was wrong. We'll also apologize to the academy and the Williams family saying he is a quote work in progress. Now, a lot of people are divided on this. And I hate to ask the question, is this enough? Because we didn't get the slap. Right. He didn't slap my ass. Right. So I can't say if it's enough for Chris Rock or not. But if you were in the situation, would it be enough for you? I don't know. I honestly, I don't know if I don't know if that would be enough, because to me I felt like in the moment it was handled so weirdly. I just think if we had a time machine and could have fixed how the immediate aftermath happened, I would like that to happen, but we can't because it did happen. I think it sit down, face to face. I'd like to see that happen. I would like to look someone in the eye. I apology, I think. Because it was an Instagram apology, right? Yeah, yeah. I know. I'm the same way. I'm the same way in the sense that we cheat on me publicly if you hit me publicly, I'm gonna need you to run me the same apology, but in the same format that we did in it. So if you gonna hit me on the Oscars, you're gonna apologize to me on the Grammys. Okay. Right. And I need that to happen. And the Grammys would be like, you know what? Y'all come on, for sure. Let's do something. Instagram. But like, when is it ever gonna be enough? So apparently they talked and did they talk though? Do we know that they sat down? They're saying. Well, did he said that they did, but then there are reports that said, when diddy confirmed it, nothing had been done yet. Okay. Okay, so that's different. That's different. Because at this point, I thought that yesterday, we were confirmed that they had talked after. And now they're saying they're not. So if they hadn't said anything and that's the first statement that he put out to say, sorry, then yes, that's not enough. No. But if they talk behind closed doors, and I am talking to you and I'm like, okay, I accept your apology. We're good to go. Then I think that's enough. I don't know. But also, but also Chris Rock. Yeah. Let's be honest. Yes. Chris Rock is a comedian. Chris Rock is also going on tour and we heard those tickets have skyrocketed in the last 24 hours. Chris Rock is going to talk about this incident 100%. For the next 13 months. So being cool with Will Smith and saying, hey, we cool. Is an invitation for him to say, I'm going to open up this wound 25 times. Exactly. And close it back again and do that every night for the next 6 months. So get cool with it, okay? Now, the academy said, it is launching a formal review of the incident and they will explore the actions and consequences. I mean, does academy have some sort of detective unit that we don't know about. We see the accounting guy. He comes out with a briefcase, but do we think the accounting they've got some guy, you know, you got to go out, you got a dust, Chris Rock's face for breaks. Like, is that happening? Well, I mean, if it is happening, since it is happening, the academy, I have a few other things I want you to look into. Since y'all getting that investigation going, can you also look into where security was to protect Chris Rock? Yes. That. The other thing I want you to look into and investigate because this might take a minute is when and who from the academy will apologize to said Chris Rock for not protecting him. I also want you to look into this one's also a good one. If Will Smith loses his Oscar, does witty Allen and Roman Polanski lose theirs as well? Right. And the last thing I would love you guys to look into and the most important is where was Meryl on Sunday? Can someone tell me where Meryl was? And why was there no seat like holder for Meryl's ass? Very true. So yeah, if you're going to investigate that. But can you imagine, is it like you know, is it the spin off? The academy, you know, SVU or whatever. You know, I mean, yes, they've got a lot of work on their plate. They're gonna have three spin offs. They've got a lot of investigating to do. Did you see that sad, got involved in it? Yeah. Do you guys hear about that? Yes. So the sag awards issued, what do you call it? Actors feel guilt said that they have been in contact with the Academy Awards and they want the academy to look into this and they do not, you know, condemned and could own this kind of behavior. And I'm like, sex, didn't y'all see what happened to you cousin Golden Globes? She opened her damn mouth. I'm talking about, oh, Oscar, so white. Meanwhile, that bitch had no black people in the Hollywood foreign press. There were more black people in squid games than in the Hollywood foreign press. And she opened her damn mouth, okay? Yeah. It's like, don't go on GMA talking about. I can not believe.

"You know, they've done a couple of thrillers, but you get the impression that he's intrigued by this kind of style of filmmaking and storytelling. And when I say German expressionist cinema, that sounds like a pretentious thing to say, but literally the way that the movie looks looks like nosferatu, or doctor caligari, it looks like one of those movies, those hertz 20s and 30s horror films that came out of Europe that so clearly influenced Americans in the cinema so much when it gets into noir and movies like night of the hunter. You can't tell me that the production designer and Bruno del benel the DP warrant looking at all this stuff to make it, because it is like you say, much more entranced with those parts of the story. Now the rest of the cast is very good. It's mostly stage actors. There are a handful of exceptions there. Alex hassel plays Ross and Ross takes on a pretty big significance in this story. You know, I don't have a lot of theories about the third murderer in Macbeth, but the third murderer is a thing. This is sort of the grassy Knoll of Macbeth if we're keeping the JFK metaphor going. I love it. I love it. And Ross is clearly identified as the third murderer in this story. That is an interesting decision that people have made that choice before Roman Polanski made this bad choice and his adaptation from the 70s. It gives the story a different kind of weight to make someone so clearly that figure. You know, there's a way to film this or to stage this where you have a hooded figure as the third murderer, there are some people who pick a gosh I can't call who the other possible theorist is. But anyhow, I thought alexs was really good. I've never really seen him before. If I've seen him, I've never really noticed him before. And he stuck out to me just like Catherine hunter did where I was like, maybe it would have been better to deem movie star this movie in a way to make it more effective because then I wouldn't have brought so much baggage to the personas of the figures on screen. Well, I think you're also identifying two places where Joel Cohen decides to fill in a little bit. And a lot of Macbeth, it is faster moving and all of the main events happen offstage. And very Greek tragedy sort of way. And as I said, riddles and illusions and things that you can bring to the text and when you're making a movie adaptation, you can show things that you can't show on the theater and so in a stage play. So the moments where there's an idea or the text suggests this and we're going to show you this way or a performance will add this then the other is exciting, right? That's why we do this. And I think some of the other parts of the movie that are so text bound, or so kind of like.

"You mentioned true crime and I have a, I've got a really complicated relationship with it, right? And to watch this sort of like culture grow and emerge and become a personality trait, which is like, I love crimes and to not have to participate in it in any sort of deeper context, which is like, how and why and what does this mean? And who does this effect? It's just very, very troubling to me and you, you are true crime for some people. Yeah, I am true crime content. You know, my own podcasts sometimes covers true crime subjects in large part because I'm a true crime subject and a lot of people who feel themselves to be true crime content reach out to me because they know that I can relate to that experience. And to your point, one of the biggest problems of the true crime genre is that the people who find themselves at the center of these stories, which are ultimately about judgment, never find their perspective, their voice, to be a part of that authorship. The trick about like true crime is that it's true, so therefore we are just actively engaged enough that it's not just like we're passively listening to an interesting romance novel or mystery novel. We are actively engaged. We're investigating where thinking about it where armchair detective in. And we feel entitled to do so because there has been this tragic event and this event that seems like we all have a stake in it, right? So we feel like we're entitled to that and therefore we're entitled to the lives and the personalities of the people involved. What we don't think is that those people might not just have a perspective about what happened like as plot devices, but as actual people with perspective over the story that is being created around the event that happened. And what I've attempted to do in my own work, having been on the wrong side of that kind of treatment of real life people and events is to give the story back to the person who has the most at stake. You know, no story and no thing in history belongs to anyone, but the person who has the most at stake probably has a really, really worthwhile perspective. And if we're going to enter into a story as tragic and real that has real life consequences, we should start with the person who has the most at stake. So an episode that we did was covering the Roman Polanski saga of him being on trial or people trying to get him on trial, but from the perspective of the young woman who was actually raped by Roman Polanski and her journey and how she has felt like she has been projected as a person who she's not one by the people who wanted to deny that she was ever assaulted in the first place. She was just this Lolita, who was tempting Roman Polanski and on the other side, people who want her to be the ultimate victim to wreak vengeance upon this person with a ton of power when the reality is actually much more interesting. She is someone who did not want to be defined by this one horrible thing that happened to her. And she on her own terms came to a resolution between herself and her victimizer. And that story is not only ignored, but by others try to be suppressed because it doesn't fit the morality tale that the vast majority of people want to tell. So giving her back her agency and a situation where she is denied agency all around is a fascinating story and one worth telling and worth listening to and that's what I tried to do. Amanda's podcast is created with and produced by her husband Christopher. When did you and Chris meet? So we met when his first novel was published actually. I did a review of his book, war of the encyclopedists, and I was not intending to meet him at all. It occurred where I submitted my review and then the very next day I walked out of my apartment building and I noticed a poster up on a diner window for a book reading for this exact book that I had just reviewed. And this was at a time where I was still not going out to public things and very much just living my very quiet isolated life. And I thought, you know what? Screw it. It's a small local author, book reading. I can go to that. And it'll be okay, and I'll just sort of like creep in in the background and hopefully no one will notice me and of course everyone noticed me and whispers abound. But I met this incredible author in his best friend who wrote a book together and they had not followed my case at all. And we just had a really nice in person interaction. We decided to become friends and after many, many months, we started dating. Oh my God. How did it feel to meet a person and just be like, hey, I'm Amanda and have them be like, cool, and you're reviewed my book, like what did you think? Also, did you give his book a good review? I did. I loved his book, which is part of the reason why I wanted to go to this book reading because I thought it was hilarious and smart and silly and it was all the good things about a novel, so I can't speak well enough about it. What was really striking about that experience was precisely like he didn't do the whole wow, you're a man to knocks, like he hadn't followed my case. He didn't really know anything about it. And at the end of talking to him, he was just like, hey, we should be Friends, and it was the first time that I like this was very, very shortly after I was fully exonerated. And it was the first time that I thought, oh my gosh. Can I meet people and make Friends in the world like a normal person again? Is that something that is allowed me? So they actually became some of my first new people friends after the whole saga, because prior to that, I just did not go out and meet people. I did not go into public spaces. I didn't trust new people because I very often felt like whenever I walked into a room, like the person who preceded me was this idea of me, and I was constantly having to interact with people through this veil of prior judgment based upon what people had heard about my case. And I never really felt like I got a clean slate with anyone. And with my husband, he just went out of his way when he first met me to never Google me. Christopher doesn't get to know Amanda knots, foxy knoxy or Amanda Knox exoneree. He gets Genoa Amanda, acute lady who showed up to his book event, who likes food and cats and weird movies. He invited me over to his place to make risotto. So we made risotto together. And then we watched this really campy, obscure movie called Norwegian ninja. Have you ever seen that movie? I must have missed that one. It was a really great moment. We were we were connecting on this level of like I am genuinely a very silly person. I really love to have fun. At the end of the day, I want to listen to weird Al. And he is also a very silly person when it all comes down to it. He used to do stand up where he's just like this super white rapper guy. He would show up in these like one color outfits with giant insane bling that he had personally made. He took a big bat wing toy and put rhinestones on it and that was his shtick. So like him being a weirdo silly person, we connected over that. Christopher gives Amanda, the immeasurable gift of allowing herself to be known as she is. Not as she's been presented to be.

"But Robert Evans used to tell me that he was fascinated by the fact that I 11 was an atheist and he refused to let his wife read the manuscript because he knew he was going in places that would be very scary for a young mother. Well, the baby. And his fears were very personal and professional. The book was considered blasphemy. I 11 feared there'd be a big back backlash, maybe he'd be blacklisted from publishers. That shit could happen back then. Meanwhile, the book sells like hotcakes, 4 million copies fly off the shelves, and that's a number that you guys just can't understand. If somebody writes a book now and sells 20,000 copies, you think you did a good job. 4 million copies fly off the shelves. Evan scoops up the rights to the film. A year later, he convinces a little known Pollock as he called Roman Polanski to direct the movie version. And Evans loved to talk about it because nobody really had heard much about Polanski he made one film that was very odd. And nobody had high hopes for him directing rosemary's baby. But when he did, the reviews came in and vindicated Evans gamble. Roger Ebert wrote Polanski out does Hitchcock. Liz Smith wrote sheer perfection. Variety praised just about everybody involved. Polanski had triumphed. Star me and Farrell was outstanding, composer Christophe colmena score was top notch and the producer William castle was considered a master. But then the curse began. The first unlucky soul was comida. And the details of his death are kind of still scarce, but Polanski told it this way in a book. He said in the autumn of 1968, comedia is 37 years old. He's roughhousing at a party when he fell off a rocky escarpment. And he went into a four month coma. The very same affliction that Levin's witches use to kill rosemary suspicious friend in the book. And in the movie. And comedia never regained consciousness and died in Poland the following year. In April 69, the producer William castle was sick with worry from the hate mail he received about this devil movie and suddenly he got a bad case of kidney stones. I've had them, they are so painful. I made foam posted people telling them I love them. I'm probably not gonna see them anymore. That's how painful kidney stones are. So he's delirious in the hospital and I get it. And while he's delirious, he hallucinates scenes from the movie and it's said that he yelled out loud, rosemary for God's sake dropped the knife. Well, he recovered just barely, but never had a Hollywood hit again. Then there's obviously Roman Polanski's fate. And we've told that story and retold that story into legend, but listen. It's a doozy. Polanski had to relocate to California alongside his new girlfriend, Sharon Tate. Who was fresh off her first movie as a witch in the eye of the devil just before filming began. Sharon wanted the lead role in rosemary's baby awfully bad, but paramount and Robert Evans loved and cast Mia Farrow instead. And pissed off Roman Polanski, but bob Evans said Roman, we gotta go this way. It's a better move. And I'll tell you, having just seen this movie the other night, you can actually see Sharon Tate in the background of rosemary's baby. She's uncredited in the film. But she's like a ghost in the background. Remember that part where rosemary decides to throw a party for young people only because she doesn't want the neighbors next door, the elderly neighbors next door to come over.

Where if you had experienced raped and deviated from these expectations you were seen as being like half a logical or there's some deeper issues with you. I just keep thinking about like the the woman who when she was a girl was raped by roman polanski and she publicly stated after these feminist groups and victims rights groups. Were using her name to for you know. stronger incarceration Laws and longer sentences and dealing with sexual violence only through the courts and not ever as a interpersonal issue.

"So Afghanistan is it's drawn out in the map is not because the people of Afghanistan fought to the edges and said this is our land, like most countries define their land. The Iranians did that. The Russians did that. I think he is Becky's did that. And then the Pakistanis did that, right? They picked we get at least to this, right? And many times fought for more of it over time in terms of like the Pakistani border, which is, by the way, border. It's a wash of desert. Nobody fucking knows. You'd be hundreds of miles in either direction and not know where the fuck you are. So this is not an area of the world where you're going like, welcome to Tulsa. Come on in. You're driving through a fucking arch made a deer antlers, and you know you're there. None of that exists in Afghanistan. And so the illusion that it's a country has always been part of the problem. Now, a lot of the backstory and I'm a big Rambo fan. So I'm one of those people who remembers that the rainbow two or three rainbow three is dedicated to the valiant people of Afghanistan. Get movies, think about that for a second. America fuck, yeah. Rambo, the third movie is dedicated to the valiant people of Afghanistan. For fighting back against the Soviets, with weapons, by the way, that we gave them. So one of the other things too is everybody's like the Romans tried to conquer it. They didn't lose it. They just went, it's not worth it. But you. You know what I mean? They went and fought for the Germanic lands, and the Polish lands, which led to Hitler thinking, he's a romantic descent or pre romantic Germans and the Romans came in and took Poland from us and we want to take it back, which is why Roman Polanski's name is Roman Polanski. It's Roman son of Poland. That's what is fucking name immune system. Stage name. So he chose that because his parents were Jews swept up in the concentration camps. So all that shit happened, the Romans didn't lose Afghanistan. They went around. They were like, what the fuck are we fighting for? It's a 122° in the middle of the night. Fuck this. So they didn't lose it in the traditional sense. But it tried to conquer Afghanistan and they lost. No, they didn't. And they were like, keep it. The same thing is true in many ways of the illusion about Russia. The story about Russia has always been the Russians got in a quagmire in Afghanistan and they lost because the Afghans fall back. We fed them all those weapons. We gave the use of zod and all those like Osama bin Laden's forces, all the weapons they use. The missiles, the bullets, the guns, everything.

You actually have to put down your phone and avoid all other distractions so that you can read something now how you read a book without a phone and the kindle app. I don't know. I don't know how that works but apparently it's possible somehow it's also national women's day today. National women's day is a south african public holidays celebrated annually on august ninth. This commemorates a nineteen fifty-six march by twenty thousand women who were protesting the urban areas. Act this required. Non white citizens of south africa to carry essentially a passport These pass laws as they call them. Were basically a feature until nineteen eighty-six when apartheid system ended. It's also national rice pudding day today and of course there's people that heat this stuff there's people that love this stuff you gotta make it right. We're buy the right brand in order to have good rice pudding because yes. This is one of those things that you can really mess up. So be careful with your rice pudding today. By the way the largest serving of rice pudding ever four thousand five hundred sixty three pounds. I was done back in twenty fifteen in india. No pictures so. I can't say if that was a good one or not but usually you can tell with just by looking at a photo of the rice pudding. It's also national leap day. What's veep well. You know the television show. We're not talking specifically about that. We're actually talking about the vice. President of the united states and this is not a holiday for kamala harris no it's to commemorate the presidential succession provision in the constitution. Will why today will that actually went into place today. And we'll tell you about that in our events. Hey speaking of events. We should probably talk about those well. We got a bunch today. So i'm to get right into it. Do a couple of quick ones here in eighteen fifty four because its book-lovers dash probably tell you that henry david throw published walden on this day again back in eighteen. Fifty four Thomas edison on this day in eighteen. Ninety two received a patent for the two way telegraph at guy had so many pets so many pans okay. Nineteen sixty-nine on this day in a luxurious neighborhood. Here beverly hills sharon tate and three others were murdered by followers of the manson family. Sharon was eight and a half months pregnant. Her husband director producer and writer. Roman polanski was not present at home at the time. He was working on a film in europe now. After committing the crime the manson family went back to the ranch. Where basically the cult resided. Yeah the colt was known. It has the manson family and they would murder again. They would murder supermarket executive leno law bianca and his wife. Okay so the police would actually raid the manson ranch. On the sixteenth of august of nineteen sixty nine and arrest charles manson and many members of the family now the arrests however were not for the murders. They were for car theft z. They'd been stealing. Vw bugs and them into dune buggies for their ranch in the desert there so the problem though the warrant had the wrong date so they had to free the family. Okay so the family would actually relocate to death valley at another ranch now. Police would also rate this location in october. Again for grand theft auto now while in custody in november of nineteen sixty nine one of the members boasted that they committed the tate lobby bianca murders. They were found guilty of the crimes. January of nineteen seventy-one charles. Manson died in prison in twenty seventeen. Obviously there's way more to this story than i can tell in ten minute podcast. In fact there's an entire podcast about this. It's called you must remember manson. it's from 2017 but it is fantastic. They've actually got a couple of series of podcasts.

In one thousand nine hundred seventy four c. Richard nixon. Of course he resigned. There's the whole watergate scandal which we've talked about plenty on this show and we'll talk about more actually in the coming months so okay he is now. President of the united states never elected. How did he get to the become. Vp without being elected. We'll spiro. Agnew had resigned from the vp role after a criminal investigation so anyway on this day gerald ford after being sworn in he gave a speech that was clearly trying to reunite the nation. After all of the issues that had happened within the nixon administration. In fact saying that long national nightmare is over. Okay so how did he do as president. Well here's one of the biggest issues his term. He pardoned nixon for the crimes. And this upset many people now. They actually tried to do it at like you know the sunday morning. I like nine when nobody was paying attention but of course that news is going to get out anyway. He would not win his bid for reelection in nineteen seventy six. Losing to jimmy carter now. Everybody somewhat agrees that he was a decent president. Everybody definitely agrees that he did do a decent job in trying to reunite the nation. Okay we moved down to our biography of the day.

"On july twenty fourth nineteen seventy the trial of charles manson and his followers began manson and three of his acolytes stood accused of planning and executing the murders of seven people. The previous year. The killing spree had stunned the city of los angeles on the night of august eighth nineteen sixty-nine four manson followers susan atkins patricia krenwinkel. Linda kosabe ian and tex watson said out from the cult's rural headquarters on a terrible mission. They drove up into the winding hills of benedict canyon and broke into the home of director roman polanski acting on manson's orders the posse murdered five people at the house including actress sharon tate. Jay c. bring abigail folder. Voi- check frank hausky and steven parent in a horrific final flourish. The murderers painted the word pig on the door of the house. Using tate's blood manson's motivation for targeting. These victims specifically has never been confirmed per one theory. Manson had a grudge against the homes last owner music. Producer terry melcher. The previous year melcher had declined to make a record with manson and raging the egotistical cult leader the following night manson himself drove six of his followers to a property in the los feeless neighborhood of los angeles where they murdered grocery store owner lino la bianca and his wife rosemary. Again the love bianca's were not targeted and manson's motivations for choosing their home are murky but as the prosecution noted manson's obsession with a race war which he called helter skelter appeared to be at the root his sadistic killings. Manson was a racist. His vision for helter skelter was really a white supremacist. Fantasy in which a conflict between white and black people would make it possible for him to seize power in manson's warped and bigoted vision of the future. He and his followers would go underground during the war itself. Once the smoke cleared he believed there would be a window left for him to suddenly emerge and takeover the murders were in part. Manson's attempt to jump start the race war. He and his followers staged both crime scenes to make them look like they were committed by the black panthers. A group manson loathed. But he was also trying to use. These flashy gruesome killings to distract from other crimes. He and his followers had committed including the july nineteen. Sixty-nine murder of gary hinman regardless of manson and his family's convoluted motivations they're killing spree was a defining moment in the nation's history the fact that his followers were mostly well off middle class teenagers was especially compelling and disturbing to average americans. The murder sparked widespread. Fear about the occult and it's corrupting influence. On the youth which contributed to the rise of the satanic panic during the nineteen seventies even though manson and his followers were jailed for life when their trial wrapped up the damage they done could never be reversed.

There's not very many business cards for coach or the hallmark section is limited. Yeah yeah i mean the unknown so what people may not know is that a colt means the unknown. So if we take things very literally the occult is what is unknown and trying to be proved or may not be proved down the line. But it's usually something that commonly in pop culture is affiliated with something dark ominous attraction as well so we can't have one without the other so cultism is the study or the interest of things that may seem to be clouded and dark and shady.

'Joker' Is Getting Serious Award Show Buzz

"This being the Oscar show we are of course talking about movies that may or may not contend for Oscar's just before we get began recording we were we're discussing the Venice Film Festival's winner of the Golden Lion and that movie of course Amanda is called Joker now jokers for those of you who've been sleeping under under a rock todd Phillips's. I guess you just described it aptly as a remake of taxi driver but with the joker we think that's what that movie is going to be. Neither you nor I have seen correct and until we see it. I think is going to be difficult for us to weigh in specifically on whether it's a problematic movie whether it's a wonderful movie. I don't know I also also just candidly I'm looking forward to it. Though I think we've started on the show a handful of times were not looking forward to the discourse around the movie that we don't have to look for it. It's already here. It's here. It's here I. I'm not really a part of it and I said that I would not be a part of it. I continue to not be in part because as you said we haven't seen it yes. We're only citing it here. Because the idea of joke entering the Oscar race I think is significant. I noted this over the weekend but just four of the previous forty Golden Lion winners have gone on to become best picture nominees two of those four of them in the past two years. Those movies are the shape of Water Roma both of which were if not major favorites significant contenders so it's possible that as as things evolve maybe Venice's evolving into perhaps a bellwether for the academy I it's very hard to say because in addition to joker being acknowledged they also acknowledged alledged Roman Polanski's new film officer and a spy which won the silver lion and it's notable that the academy expelled Roman Polanski last year from the academy so I do think that a festival like Venice which you and I discussed a couple of weeks ago as we previewed the season has the chance to significant significantly influence where we're going the season and I feel a complicated question in the sense that you and I are having this conversation now and a bunch of people lost their minds on twitter this weekend about joker winning the Golden Lion. I you know I think that happened on Saturday afternoon. A PS and you watched all the tweets role in it. Everyone being like Oh. Oh Shit Oscar racist change like Fam- It is early September calm down you know that is the nature of the Oscars at this. Wayne is like a bunch of people just like hidden at retrieve Biden and being like game changer so I guess it's a game changer I also so there was instant hand ringing ringing of being like a Venezia's responding to the discourse and they are saying no you will not shame us we will not that'd be politically correct which is like. They're not at all. It's Venice. It's just like a bunch of people taking boats around and being like we're having a nice international time like I promise Lucrecia Martel who is the president of the jury this year like did not read your tweets and doesn't care so to the extent that all of this okay so you're just you really feeling it right now and it's great. I just like Lucrecia. Martel was just chilling in a boat somewhere. That's what you're saying. She was in a Gondola. I hope she had what a great time watching hangover three director. She deserves it. I hope she got some time like on a plaza somewhere with an imperative because that's what you gotTa do when you go adventist okay it's not read stupid people's tweets about like what joker reflects about the twenty first century masculinity or whatever she doesn't care they. I don't care so in that sense no but in the sense that we are in a prison of our own making and all of the Oscar discourses now but because of people reacting and just kind of shutting each other across the void I just did a monologue about it and the Oscar Shell. You're participating of course participating and we say we're not going to and then we do. I think you definitely put your finger on something very smart. which is that the reactionary nature of certain movies or at least the way they're perceived to be reactionary canary invariably influences the races you know the green book conversation happened in part because there is at least the expectation that older members of the academy did not not want to be told what they could or could not like now joker is not exactly the same as green book even though we haven't seen joker? I feel pretty safe assumption that they don't have the same posture. Let's say but I do think that there is a chance that a movie like this could sneak. Its way in because of what you're saying because there is the sort of like. Don't tell tell me what kind of a movie I'm allowed to like not like. I'm not totally sure. Todd Phillips is not necessarily historically known as a awards filmmaker and Joaquin Phoenix INEX- is a bit of a circuitous personality in the world. You know he's not the kind of person who I think is going to go to one hundred after parties and kiss babies to get his nomination despite the fact that he's understood to be the master of his craft etc etc.. We'll have to just wait and see you know we're. We're not far away from seeing this movie. The only thing I would say flip side of that is that it would be so Oscars for them to finally recognized the Superhero Genre with this movie that is a remake of an odd to all the seventy s movies that these these academy jokers grew up on. I don't think that that would be a fair recognition of what soup the superhero genre is in the industry and I don't think that would be a fair recognition this movie which I haven't even seen but you can see you can see them get. The one thing I'll say is though there's one thing working for them working the thing working against it. The one thing we're going forward is the sort of like elevated seventies thing that you're mentioning which gives it a perhaps a measure of credibility in some people's minds. The flipside is this character has already been celebrated by the Academy Heath Ledger already one thing this character so we know that the academy is maybe more open to the idea of a chaos agent in its mix. You know what I'm saying yes but the academy recognizes like the King of England and a character like every three years so that doesn't doesn't really matter okay the one thing that we can say about joker is that it's clear that he is this week's winner of is he running because joker is running. It is clear the joker is here to stay for the Oscars conversation so we'll get into him more. I suspect that we'll do a little bit of a deep dive on the show in October. I WanNa ask you about the article the because it's very clearly titled Joker and calling I mean I understand that the joker is the character but I think they're also trying to do something by not having him be the joker. It's it's a word play has also he's a joker because we're all joker rate so the collective joke asking you. I want to set some intention for Oscar season. Are we going to call him. The joker are we just going to call him joker. Can we just see the movie and find out what if he's not the canonical joker. Tell okay. It's Ah you're editor. Brain is working on this Monday morning. We'll just have to wait and see because it's completely plausible that this is not operating in the traditional Batman Mythology. Oh Gee and so thus it's just a reference to how all leaders and men with power jokers of the world listen. I'm just trying to respect the film and the filmmakers occurs and engage with the text people. Don't think that I'm going to do that was movie but I am well. We appreciate your your candor. Openness and
