"Especially in both of them. Mom followed. I was like, what the hell's a mofo? He's like, you know. You know, the, you know? Look at your mother. If they were saying both of them. But what we don't stop before will hurt you. Bullshit. And then that was my first row, but we will street wars. Yeah, so that was not enjoyed by there's a buzz you get when you work it on a film, you know, you walk around the set and smell the lumber from you walking around. I've never learned working on a sound stage, so this is changing, always smell, and you always remember walking on a set of the coffee, there's this and that it's always to me the lumber, you always hear. You know, buzzy. As they're preparing new parts of the sets, yeah. Smell of the gun. Yeah. And things moving around and things moving around. I was on the set of angels and demons, and I played one of the diplomats lives. And Ron Howard actually had to interrupt the scene because this is the biggest that I've ever been on, right? And they had these gig enormous boom cameras that were just coming overhead. And I'm looking up at the cameras and all sorts of strange things going through my head like, wow. I wonder how many people that would take out if it fell. I get away. See her studying this camera is like they stop the scene and said, I'm gonna need you to look at the future. I was so embarrassed. There's just so much going on on this stage. You're right, you know, the smells, the sounds. They really, they create the excitement. And that's what I was like, well, I might just have to tell me like I mean, this would be the shit. I was like, you know, it was, it was amazing. And it still is so amazing to be a part of a big production and. It's just that really, it's just that mine was like, this is what you're supposed to be doing. I was like, there's no one. This is your first time. You take no active glasses. No, I took the watching graveyards. So. I had to just stay out of trouble. Did you get into trouble on your sex as well? Well, not on the sex. Only one time. And that was like a television show. We were, you know, people get antsy and I'm like, I'm not fuck you up. I had learned to play, I always thought it was good to play a square. I didn't want nobody to know who I was. I didn't know. Anything about these, so I was like, no, so I just, I created this whole square,

"We're gonna have to do one hell of a lot more than to scare me. Yeah, but look at all over for you, man, didn't nobody tell you I was looking for you. Hey, I can't keep track of you. Run around your backwards. 8 you're supposed to be the best thing in the valley, man, but that can't be your car and must be your mama's car. I'm sort of embarrassed to be this close to you. This one, I saw come up quite a bit on social media when we did ask listeners for their favorite. I asked particularly, you have to pick one. What is your favorite film of 1973? A couple of folks did go with American Graffiti, including cordell cabe on Twitter at cordell cabe 12. This is what cordell wrote about the film style humor, soundtrack, cinematography, inventiveness, influential, writing, cast, shall I go on? I pretty much in agreement there on all those counts. Let me just highlight a few. The soundtrack. Frankie Lyman's why do fools fall in love? The platters the great pretender. The monotones of the book of love. Del Shannon's runaway Buddy Holly's maybe baby. Those are probably my favorites, but it's just a few of the songs that you get here. Cinematography. Yonda elkin and Ron eversley, our credit as the cinematographers here. Rewatching clips for this atom, American Graffiti is just luminous, the headlights, the street lights, those gleaming cars. It's incredible how glowing this movie is, which is fitting for what is not entirely a nostalgia piece, but that's definitely an element, right? Looking back at an earlier time with fondness. Talk about the writing, Lucas, Gloria Katz, and Willard hike were nominated for an Oscar for the screenplay. Movie also nominated as we said for best picture. And best director best editing and then a best supporting actress nod for candy Clark. Influential, I mean dazed and confused for us and our listeners are probably the first title that comes to mind. But that's just one of the end of high school movies that American Graffiti did influence. And then we do finally get to the cast. Paul lemat, Cindy Williams, Ron Howard, a fresh faced Harrison Ford in a cowboy hat and a twang, and then as Kurt, one of the more major characters we meet, who's chasing romance in the form of a mythical blond in a white Ford Thunderbird, Richard Dreyfuss.

"Now at this point, Kate had been away from the screen for a very long time indeed, but Hollywood hadn't forgotten. They just kept calling. Finally, she answered. The filmmakers, many of whom have been discussed tonight who have been lucky enough to have the opportunity to collaborate with her. Read like a who's who of the greatest filmmakers of our time, Martin Scorsese, Woody Allen, Jillian Armstrong, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard, Peter Jackson, Terrence malick, Anthony minghella, Todd Haynes, Jim jarmusch, Bruce beresford, check our David Fincher, Steven Soderbergh, Adam McKay, Alfonso cuaron. Alejandro and Iran to Guillermo del Toro. I'm going to stop there. It's just a name but a lucky few. Yes. How lucky they all were. And how lucky I am. And how lucky the world is to live in a time where Cate Blanchett, grace was our stages and screens. And walks the earth for our common good. John larm of The New Yorker got it right. Her informed heart. That is Cate Blanchett. And yes, she is one of the greatest actors who's ever lived. What a privilege and joy it is to introduce to you my friend and colleague and the recipient of the outstanding performer of the year award. V one. And only. Kate Blanchett. Thank you so much. Thank you, Todd. Thank you. Thank you. I won't bang on. You've heard enough and seen enough. But thank you so much, Todd. And it really is lovely to be back in Santa Barbara. Which is a place that, yeah, that is some, it's a community so full of spirit and such a warm, loving film loving community. So thank you to the Santa Barbara film festival for the third time, clearly a lot of people have said no. Here we go. You got me again. Thank you. And for outstanding performance of the year, it's an honor in any, but this year, in particular, when there have been so many outstanding idiosyncratic performances, memorable performances by women of wildly different shapes and sizes and artistic ambition. It's an honor indeed. So thank you so much. And thank you, roger. And thank you Scott for the conversation. Thank you very much. And for the reminder that I have been in this industry, for quite some time, which really is a genuine surprise to me that I've been able to pursue what I love. I mean, in a way, acting is a sort of a physical visceral form of anthropology. You get to sort of excavate a character, a set of relationships and the circumstances that they live in. You know, involves dance and theater. And costume architecture and random snatches of conversation. And they're all channeled into one form. And that is a form that I love so much, which is film. And the last 30 years, my passion in the film industry has been the craft of acting. And this passion has led me to seek out roles that can deepen and challenge that craft. And in doing so, you fail. And you fail and you fail. And sometimes it works. And that is, you know, you can do all the homework in the world. And the film can succeed, but it fails to reach an audience. And so I often think about what we what we decide is a successful film. What we decide is a successful performance. Is it one that wins awards like this? Or is it one that stands the test of time and people discover in ten years time? It's so it's so personal in a way. And so thank you for that painful. It's a very big way to look at yourself. I mean, you don't. You don't really ever get your phone just doesn't prepare you for that. So just yeah. But it also, I think the gift, I'm a wonderful audience member, by the way, I love going to the theater. I love going to live music and to dance and to the cinema. And just to forget who I am and to strangers in the dark, imagine somebody else's ambition. And I think often when we think about what people are trying to do there up on the big screen, it's important to remember, what are they trying to do rather than do I like it? Do I dislike it? I mean, these things aren't often useful assessments about what is actually people are trying to do up there. Maybe they're trying to do something to shift us into uncomfortable and different places. And that is certainly what Todd field did for me. And for audiences in tar. And look, let's be Frank. I do like being a little bit terrified. But it's only such roles that ask you to shift and change. And that our startling in game changing and they are only as startling in game changing as the stories. They sit within. And they're determined by the dance partners that you are lucky enough to find yourself paired with. And they are also dependent upon the delicate dance that you find and make with a director. And I know how I know how rare those collaborations are firsthand. And so I accept this honor a hundred and million 1 trillion % in the name of the most generous inspiring of collaborators that I had ever had the great good fortune to work with. And that is Todd field. Because tar consumed

We must take food more seriously and put somebody that brings the power of food on the air of the president of the United States. I'm sure many people have wanted to make documentaries about you. Why did you say no until Ron Howard and then why did you say yes to Ron Howard? Because as much as I love to be and the little screen and the biggest screen, sometimes TB makes, you know, people think in different ways and sometimes it's good and sometimes it's not bad. And I've seen a lot of cooking shows that they've done great, but then I've seen some young fellows not handling DB very well. I thought that TB was going to be making some of the team members add in a different way that they will do it if TB cameras are not. So that's why it took time two years and that's why Ron, I say no, but they say no with the most respect, but then it's why I say, yes, because nobody will be better than Ron. He's a very loving caring person and we always had people following us with cameras. Young cinematographers like Sebastian and Alicia, and they were not used guys filming. They were us. They were part of the family. They were only used making sure that everything will be documented. Guys that very often will put the cameras down because they will be helping us deliver food. This type of guys that the mission of food was more important than the mission of filming. And that's why they were always with us. And that's why Ron will tell you that some of the footage was from this people like Alicia and Sebastian plus the team of Ron, obviously. But nobody could tell this story probably better than Ron diet is many stories that are missing is a lot of people are missing. It's only so much you can do in an hour and a half documentary. Nobody knows how we finance ourselves. Nobody knows how it's so many other stories, but it's actually the beauty of the documentaries, one documentary doesn't have to be telling the story of everything. It's only giving you a glimpse into a window, not only into my life, I don't remember very clearly, was I didn't call it Jose Andres kitchen. I call it Washington because to feed the world,.

"From the ben behind the curtain and defensive jacob. I really loved the trolley problem. This idea of the needs of the many outweighing the needs of the few in a manner speaking as to how these two different men view it. Yeah i completely agree. I never saw him as a villain. I saw him as flawed and again. That's the entire series is that no character is perfect except for franklin pettus every everyone has those essential personality flaws and those flaws informed the decisions that we make There are no good people. There are no bad people. Serve like brain was speaking about any time. Someone claims that they are as the aforementioned franklin says it's usually the opposite so i really liked that that sort of undressing of jakup. I think that was really fun. Essay from the band behind the curtain. And it sets up the duality of ben versus riley in terms of how you might feel about jakup. It's probably somewhere between those two goalposts.

It's the right way to do it for lost. I like it that way. you don't have to. I think the very least for down the the podcast.

Nineteen sixty two and at some point when he was able to to to sell the house and he could have sold it and bought a bigger house. You said you know what unhappy in this house. I love the neighborhood. Actually ron howard was was a neighbor. His parents and He enjoyed watching ronnie grew up and he he just. He's he loved the neighborhood. He got involved in in the public schools volunteering. They said i. I don't wanna leave. And and he was there again until until his passing. You talk in the book when he went to audition for the uncle leo Part on seinfeld. And i guess us a little bit intimidated doing any sort of that whole hello jerry. Kind of thing that that's kind of what got him. I got in the part anyway but that kind of gave them the character didn't it when he just added that line right i did. He did thought that was. That was pretty funny. Nineteen again low. So yeah i teach he just did it on the spot again. He gets on some comedy work as you mentioned In the sixties and the seventies and the eighties he was doing a lot of these heavy roles And so he just he decided okay. I'll give this a shot. And he came up with this. Hello and he was. He was sort of surprising. I think he thought again. That's what kind of dog him. The gig but really jerry. Seinfeld say to me know i had. I had lennon mind. The entire time for roy became position But it was funny because one side is okay but if you did it. So that's that's terrific and we're gonna use that those adalah holkar has an uncle or some kind of a little bit like unbelie- don't they gotta take. Obviously he's he. He wasn't but was a different guy. Uncle leo character very kind of introspective. And giving like you said he worked with children so that character wasn't like him in real life. I guess many way right at all not at all dollars. It's very funny because language very understated guy. just a real In in quiet in speaking with him and doing the interviews For for the book was very soft spoken And then have guides being voice and gesture kind of person so so that was really put on and jason alexander said to me to you know. Let me touch. Keep hit contemporary guy on like uncle leo. So let's say it was funny but he was. He was a good actor really was playing all those parts of the area to do so many different types of roles bigger small and movies and Went on to play a part in. Everybody loves to talk about it in the book about. He had one of the leads but they put him in as kind of knuckle leo carrico. He's a friend of the fathers right but We'll similar the way he kinda to raymond. I guess that's kind of the offshoot of the jerry. Hello right exactly. I carving that was exactly the off shoot it it. It sort of became his paying and And so he figured okay. It's working people like it and another show. Everybody loves raymond people come. It's garbage for just waiting to the book. A guy that you know you met him on.

"Resigned? Remember Katy Hill here in California? Nine days she was accused of an affair on then resign. Nothing illegal. Nothing untoward about what either one did. It's been a month since Matt Gates has been accused in the latest is That the guy that he was accused with this Rosenberg? I, um, has a letter that says he engaged both paid an underage girl for sex. And so what? Of the reports of Republican Party saying What? Nothing. Try to make a cricket sound anyway. Oh, um, So you know the Academy Awards for this week, and it's funny, too. I You know, I get it and I've seen all the movies. You know where you know we are after SAG members here. You know, those are on the air. And and so I watched them all and listen earlier to Tim Sika and Pat and I got agree with him on promising young girl. I I love the idea of the movie. I didn't like the way it came out. No man land, you know, And I guess the real question is and we'll ask our buddy Josh Poor Joshua's film critic for Ah, Fox TV and not not that Fox but a couple Fox affiliates, and he also writes for The Wall Street Journal on Dad. And I guess the real question Josh to me is doesn't movie have to be sad and full of Depressing themes to win Academy Award or could've popular movie Do it. It bounces back and forth because the whole reason they started nominating 10 movies because the dark knight the Batman movie didn't get nominated, and everybody agreed it should have. So they started nominating 10 movies. I think the only problem with this conversation happening right now is we have this weird case of Cove it happening so people didn't want to release top gun or mission. Impossible. 28. Or whatever tent pole movies for the big blockbusters. They released tenant, which was actually a nok movie. But it didn't do well at the box office. So everybody hotel back the fun movies is everyone saying, And so, then the Oscars you get a bunch of these movies like Nomad Land them in, Ari, which you're both, Okay, movies highly overrated. But okay, and people were saying that really these are the best movies of the year. And I think another thing starts happening Ship We live in a day and age where you could make movies on the cheap. I remember one time interviewing Robert counts and after his movie Hollywood shuffle came out. And he made that on his own with credit card borrowing money from friends. You you could do it a lot cheaper now, with GoPro cameras and all these other pieces of equipment, So I think you see a lot more indie movies, and when they get attention, then they start getting Oscar buzz. People start going really. He's a great movies. I mean, Nomad land. Had Frances McDormand going to the bathroom in a bucket. Nirvana and people are like, how is this good art? You know, So it's well, the weird, weird thing. I think it's an interesting story. I would have told it differently myself. But you know you're right about like the master class. There's one by Ron Howard. There's one by Spike Lee and I tell people What's a Spike Lee? He tells you how to make a movie on a shoestring. I mean, these are movies that rotten tomatoes will never review but unless you can make great movies, and you know that's the whole indie scene, right? Well, you know what you just brought up rotten tomatoes. So I have to give you a little beef right here of something that happened with me and rotten tomatoes when I applied to be on rotten tomatoes like eight years ago, they said to me Well, we don't want any more older white critics we have from the older, right critics so they refused me. So I just applied again last year. Love, eh? Maybe eight months ago, and they asked me if I was gay or transgender, And I said no. And they said, Well, we don't think you're a diverse enough voice your line like, Wait, so so I know I'm dead serious. So it's like they're turning down a critic. There's like, you know, it's just it's fast lane. It's so you know, who knows so rotten tomatoes is really bothering me these days. It's hide, and I don't know what's going on. But, yeah, it is weird when they do things like, you know, Ah, lot of times, you would tell. My friends is something that's a high rating on rotten tomatoes. You can count on it. And now it's a big mess. Because a lot of times the critics wanna like these arty movies that maybe you're way too slow. Stand. Yeah, it's just It's weird. Well, I do like the audience score next to the critics score. I can't remember what it was when you know we're gonna see a movie and I looked in there and the audience rating was like 90%. But the critics didn't like it. 70 My wife product something interesting Once when I said that about an audience course she's like that. But look at the audience score for fastest, serious seven. They all liked it because they're all people that are going to see it because that's the movie, you know, so that you're not going to go see a movie. If you don't like I would have no interest in seeing fast and furious if somebody does. They're probably gonna like what they get. Well, I mean, look, I'm one of those people that thinks when you have an opportunity to create a film that you should have, um, you should have a solid, you know, three X structure. Andhra protagonists should be complicated in the antagonist should be complicated. I think of a movie like Hannibal. Silence of the Lambs. I mean, Anthony Perkins. Everybody want him to eat that guy in the end, you know, his name the guy they've been tormenting him. Anthony Perkins was scary and psycho, but you're thinking of Anthony Hopkins. Anthony Hopkins. Excuse me, most scary characters. But I'll take for example, like, you know, Gladiator, which everybody loved. I thought Well, you know, but the character really wasn't that complicated. It was this guy. He's a soldier. You got screwed. He wanted revenge. You know, I think the really interesting character and that was walking Phoenix. It was really his movie. Yeah, you know, you know, so anyway, So what? You're out that he had a thing for his sister in that almost going on there. And, of course member At the end, he said he wanted her. They would have to, you know, have sex with him and have their kids remember? No, it was weird ending out weird, but, you know, I mean, it was that was the Roman Empire s o again. Maybe I should. Maybe I should have told rotten tomatoes. I like movies about gladiators would help. That is such a weird story, though. I'd never heard that we've known each other a long time. I never heard that story. Um, So the academy Award is it becoming moot? I mean, two people. Is it only matter now to the people in you know the 31. Oh, no, no, it matters to everybody, because I mean, if you're a small filmmaker, one of the things I think it said in a story that you and I both recently saw, I figure what publication was in, they said it could have an indie filmmaker. The next film they make. It gets $100 million budget like the woman that won the Oscar for Nomad Land. She did a movie I loved a couple years ago, called the Rider. Beautiful Film, an incredible movie..

It's worth the trip and will obviously be previewing the Hula Bowl as they actually played the Hula Bowl. That's the goofiest of the college All Star Games. The I don't know if there's any left with soup will be previewing the The Super Bowl, and I'll admit I usually considered a great intellectual challenge to figure it out and try to pick the right thing to pick pick and the whole side of betting and so on. And Just like the challenge of doing the analysis. I used to be terrible and I've gotten very good at the Super Bowl in recent years. I just can't work up a lot of interest in doing it. I mean, And and I don't even know what I'm gonna come up. I'll say something in tomorrow's program will be interested in Mike's analysis. They've been very good over the years and a say in picking the Super Bowl. I I admit that I'm colored by this wall. When I see a team that wins games that they shouldn't be winning. A lot of people say, Well, I should know what they're gonna lose the next one end. This. I'm going to be forever scarred in my memory by the first Super Bowl that New England one in the Bela chick era over there, that was the whole tuck rule game in the snowstorm. They won the playoff game with old with the Raiders, and that's what allowed them to move on and move on to the Super Bowl. And I just they should know what the last game the Tuck rule is stupid. You know you're kicking a field goal of a snowstorm in all of this. They're not that good. They're not that good. They're not that good. They're not that good. Little that I know that that was the first one of the dynasty and the thing that I took from this and I think you've seen it again and again and again, Teams that get a couple of breaks that put them in when they should have already been dead. They often keep winning. And that, of course, would be Tampa Bay who should have lost two weeks ago to Ah New Orleans, New Orleans and should have lost the Green Bay. Well. You keep losing, keep winning games that you should have lost. Maybe that means they have a good game in them and keep on going on. So Using that theory and the fact that Kansas City almost never covers the point spread. I lean toward Tampa Bay, but I also think can't Well, either way. I mean, if it's a three point spread, chances I the team, it could clearly land on the spread. I mean, it's a three point think Kansas City rightness favored by three or 3.5, depending I But I mean, if you put a gun to my head and said, who's the better team? I might say, Kansas City's? Well, That's what I just that's why I wrestle. I don't but I will. I've given this 20 minutes of thought. And in most years I've given a 20 hours of thought by now. I just don't have the I don't I don't have it hidden beauty to me to give it any more thought to this, But I will. They're allowing fans, but almost all of them are league officials and sponsors. I believe the number is going to be 20 to 25,000 fans. Well, yeah, in a large stadium. It's a lot, but I don't believe the general public and buy tickets and I don't believe But other than a scattering of sponsors that fancy either teams will be there. The reason that Paul's questions very important the games played in Tampa, but it doesn't appear is, though there's going to be a significant advantage at all of people cheering for Tampa, given That local Tampa Heights won't be going that it's mostly league and he lit officials from teams officials from the league's maybe I'm Arkady marks all these sponsors. You know, they get like hundreds of tickets. If you're a big bank roller of the NFL or Huh? Tom Brady's label, the play the players themselves get they get some, but I'm told there aren't many of those because of the covert thing. There's restrictions on whether or not the how many family members the players could even bring to Tampa. They're freaked out. The last thing they want is one team to get hit with covert now, so I think they've even discouraged anything beyond wasn't one family member or something or another buddy. It's a real limitation on it. Yeah, but she's gonna have to be posing for her. Yeah, the other than a lot of people like to pick the super but picking the cultural, I think. Other than Bella check.

I mean, maybe there are some rare cases where it's insulting. But generally speaking, if you're a chef in you're making another culture's food. It's because you love that you want to bring it to the masses. You wanna honor it and celebrated. There's nothing more wonderful than that. I want to backtrack real quickly. Listen to Howard Stern. Almost all my life. I just I was born in New York. I grew up with him and I always thought Oh, my gosh, His back the catalog of shows would get him canceled. It was Yeah, At one point, I guess. Over the summer, some of the some of the material resurfaced and he gave a very half hearted apology. Non apology said he's different now, and I thought That doesn't work. You can't No, You don't get to go back and apologize for something. 30 years ago. You have to be canceled now, But you know what happened. Though he went on the anti Trump train, hard core, he became a massive voice against President Trump at the time. That game, all the immunity he needed. He's fine. You will not be canceled. He is now the voice that they want out there and again. Cancel culture is not about making the world a better place. It is about power, how our number one and we cannot forget that we have to keep mentioning that because the examples of hypocrisy here are too massive to ignore. Christian. I just had this conversation with a friend of mine who's very liberal. And I pointed out that the hashtag me to movement was massive until it started getting all of these left wing men. In trouble. And it did not snag all of these Republican politicians which my friends were like. Oh, I can't wait to see these politicians. You know, they're all gonna know what ended up happening is Matt Lauer gets pegged, You know, we got all of these left wing. People got caught up in me, too. And then all of a sudden, it was a full pivot to black lives matter. Because and I said to her is, don't you think that's weird that we can't focus on women at the same time? Because a few minutes ago was believe all women and now it's unless they accused Andrew Cuomo. What did she say? She didn't have a response for that, Necessarily. She she just kind of Went Okay, There was no real. We have actually a really nice flow of communication. So you know, she kind of I think she's thinking about it, but it's true. It's like, Wait a minute. This all goes in one direction all the time. It always goes in one direction. It never goes in the other direction. And you think you create this giant movement on behalf of women, But you discard it Justus quickly when it's on Lee people on the left getting nailed. That's the reality and President Biden has quite the back history of being inappropriate with women. Of course, terror. Reed was the most amazing example. She had very specific allegations she had people who heard about a contemporaneously, and yet she was almost ignored by the press for a month. And then when she finally was covered, it was situational. Yeah, Listen, Bolanos of the world we're heading and Hying. Oh, it's you know, when we said, believe all women What we really met was probably what we really met was believe Christine Blazy Ford. But don't believe anybody who accuses our guy of something untoward. That never say I've It's been really hard for me to cover Hollywood the way I have for 20 years. I mean, I threw it all. Okay, I'm right of center. Great, but I still love the product. I still admire the actors I still appreciate them is still kind of gives me goose bumps when I get to speak to certain celebrities. I mean, that was me right now, after hearing what they've had to say for the last I don't know how many years how many months I'm exhausted, and I'm disgusted by them. They're not good people, and that's a broad brush. And there are plenty of good people in the industry. Ah, gosh, A lot of them just sounds terrible, mean and vicious and spiteful and just completely un of unable to reach out to other people to consider other news sources to be empathy. Actors are all about empathy. That's how they get into the minds of the characters. Whether it's a saint or a sinner. They have to understand and appreciate who they are as people and once they do, that they can really dig in and give a great performance. And yet they're completely incapable at times of doing that, for people who don't vote the way they vote. It's it really a stunning well, The first for anything for me is that there's nobody writing roles for anybody who was conservative unless you're the villain. In the movie Unless you're the bad guy, or you're the fat bum kissed guy from from Texas that everybody's gonna make fun of. So I don't think there's any challenge for any of these actors to try and develop empathy for a character. You know, we were talking about hillbilly elegy off. The air because we're gonna watch that to review on Friday. I read the book and it is outstanding. But you said they stripped all of the kind of conservative message out of the movie. They did. They did it on purpose. I heard Ron Howard the director. Talk about that, and I have to say, I think I think it's a smart move because I think you can't tell that book precisely on the big screen. ER are your screen television. It's just It's a It's a book that doesn't really translate. Beautifully. You have to kind of approach it differently. But I will say this Ron Howard has been famous forever since he was little boy on the Andy Griffith Show. He is no thin skin soul. He has been reviewed. Well, he's been reviewed badly for decades. He's an industry survivor, and you know what, he said. Way they're not being very fair to my new movie Hillbilly Elegy because they're getting very political with the reviews and their attack me from a political perspective, not is it good? Is it bad? Is it in between? He's exactly right. And the reason why he didn't hold his tongue because it was so obvious that the creeks and again I'm a critical part of this community. I I'm ashamed of my critic community. They have really transformed themselves and lost sight of what they do. They're supposed to recommend movies, whether they're good or bad and put their politics aside, at least, was Certain degree, right? And I think too often, even the ones we're running from mainstream publications. They don't do that. And Ron Howard had to call them out. I think he was absolutely right. Well, I mean, when you're Ron Howard, this is kind of like Ron Howard J. K Rolling is another great example. We need people that have already done. It already made their money. And it doesn't matter if they never make another movie or write another book again, too. To be the voice and stand up and say You can't do this, You know, call these people out because up and coming directors can't do that up and coming. Authors can't do that. J K Rolling is sitting on a billion plus dollar fortune she has, you know she can maintain her position. And and I admire her for maintaining her position in the light of the fire that she has come under people like me. We're used to it. That's what I do. You know, It's like if I can't handle that I shouldn't be in this industry. When you write books that air for teenagers, you don't necessarily think about that stuff. Christian Toto is our guest. His website Hollywood in Toto is outstanding. And yes, like Toto the dog, Hollywood in toto dot com. I put a link today on the block so you can find it, give him a follow and pay attention to his Website. Christian. I hope we'll have you back on very, very soon. Thanks. I appreciate it. All right.

And with no respect for each other. It is that now he did go on to say he does have true friends in Hollywood that a real legit offscreen friends, but they're all famous to how many guys have you worked with co stars that you actually Really like out of Sandler. Ron Howard. Definitely the other guys from Happy days. Marion Ross chasing pavements. There are others. What about Bill hater? I have great talks with them. Do great work with spill. He guides me, He writes. For me, he's so complex. He's such a great Creator and goofy, Wonderful dad. I'm crazy about him. So he has some real true friendship and they're in show buried together. Yeah, well, I wonder, though. I think he's being truthful, but it also makes you wonder. What does he gain from those people? What is gaining from those people is because they have investments together. Maybe that's why they're true Friends. Is it because image things got image. It's the fakeness like you think Selena Gomez and, um let's say Demi Lovato would have been True friends or is it more because they're really competitors, and I think that they probably have a kinship because see the same things you don't nobody else is really going to fully understand it like another young female celebrity who's going through the same things and criticism. So you bond over that, but I think they want to do better than the other one. They want to be. They have their star shining. Don't you know old hot? I think you see it all the time. And then you see if something like for an actor go southward like a Charlie Sheen has explosion or implosion. Do you see that, Like all the hanger ons are gone, And then if there's something stick around you like, well, that's a true friend. Maybe there's more truth. Everything's going great. Adam Sandler's putting you in movies, You're making tons of money. Of course, right? Yeah. Yeah, We're friends. Adam Sandler Seems like he does have true friends, though, because he does with his friends up with these movies right, And it doesn't really benefit him because it's not big names, mostly nine good actors, but he doesn't anybody continues to do it. It wasn't just like a one and done and he apparently like after grownups. One or two, he bought all the main stars. Bentleys Rolls Royces each. I mean, he'd have to do that. It's already got him in the movie, and he gives me like a $500,000 car each. You know, you have really good friends at different phases of your life. I have I have a very small handful of friends that have been my friend. Through it all The time is on our side. But then there's also friends that are you're really good friends because you're in the same phase of life. You're going out to the bars and you're drinking. You're having a great time. Then something gets married. And then somebody falls off. Somebody has a baby. That person falls off. There's no hard feelings for the most part of that. Something really bad happens. No hard feelings like I have a friend right now. We've been friends forever. We're not really friends anymore because we just don't We don't. We're not in the same phase of life. And I got tired of constantly feeling pressured or obligated to hang out with this person who didn't have any idea what it was like to have bedtimes schedules and have to feed your kids at a certain time and wake up early to go to work because they were young and single and free. I respect that. We just aren't in the same phase. And you know, I I do find sorry, Jason. That This is side note is that free is always associative being single. There's never married and free free of responsibility. Besides, free of free of having no I really to think of anybody other than yourself. Your schedule you're free and free to do Whatever. Just funny. You never saw me like Mary. Two kids and free Don't think about it like as not tied down stood I'd start. It's funny. It is true. You said it made me think of like we never associate Freedom with marriage Do I don't think about being free when I was young and single. I still thought I have bills. I had a dog to take care of. I have read. I have to pay all these things. But when you in hindsight back and you think I could pick up and go work, E O guy sometimes also difference between guys and And females is that I have a friend that I've had since high school, right? He doesn't live here. He lives in Rhode Island. He's moving to Florida, and we will connect every once in a while, and I don't have to talk to him for three years. And then as soon as he comes over, it's just like pick up where we started off great friends. That's a sign of true. True friendship with females as well. Okay, because there's all the time with God literally even an acquaintance that I know we can start. If he comes into town immediately is just like it was all right. Looks like it was never, ever do that. Yeah, somebody that hadn't seen in years. But I would see on a regular basis unknown since he was 15 years old. I have seen me at least a year pick right? It was like, what's up, man? But but but But there wasn't like sitting there. Awkwardly just picked up the true ones for females, I think are the ones where I don't I'm not like, Oh, my God. I haven't talked to so and so and so long. I have to catch up with her. If I want to catch up with her, we our lives have taken us in 1000 different directions.

What he has to talk to her girls a certain amount of times per year and then they're still friends. Otherwise is weird for me. It's like it doesn't matter. I invite him to the wedding.

Like and sit at the bar and literally make friends in about an hour. If there was people there other guys there and be friends with them and be playing games with them on the screen. We talking about sports, watching something over here. Political that no problem. Instantly. I don't think most women are like that. I don't In guess it mice phase of life my season as people like to say.

And I thought she really rose to the occasion and met that moment. Well, she stayed steady, but, you know, she carried us early. Ostensibly, she hit open shots, and that's what we've talked about A spot of part of her role. Give us the defense of energy break the leadership. And hit open shots on do that was key for us early, But then let's just talk about the play of Olivia Owen. I mean, she came in And would bang in the post. She got some scores. Her help side defense so stuff that might not show up on the stat sheet but was valuable for us today and Robin bit. She came in early hit some open shots for us, so we have Multiple people again that contributed in this wind. How about the job of your defense today? I know you gave up 86 points. But Mississippi State's dribble drive offense is just so hard because the way their guards just turn that corner and drive. How did your team adapt, though into that over time to slow them down and prevent them from getting those looks around the rim? Yeah. First of all, I wanted to say hats off to coach Nick McRae, Pinson and Mississippi State. They are a tough team. Obviously, they're well coached. Um, she has been playing extremely hard. They made tough place, um, down the stretch, and they had that never quit attitude as well. So this was a great day for women's basketball. But as far as our defense, um we did give up 86 points will go back to work against the dribble drive. However, the overtime you know, we really talk to them about trying to force them out. We were building a wall and making them score over. However, it was like a 10 ft jumper, eh? So we really tried to force them out on the floor switch, be aggressive and push them out, make them score over. But that made a big difference in the overtime. And I know this is a step that's gotta make you very proud. You out rebounded this Mississippi State team today It was buy one, but still your team, really little glass. Take it by one. But you know that it was just that relentless out attitude we talked about before the game. It would be a battle of wheels of who wants it more both teeth slated on the line. It was a great game, but I am so glad that the captain wants Absolutely, Coach. You get to carry back win number two in the SEC, and you get Theo take a little bit of a break now before getting ready for a road trip Thursday, and we'll see you tomorrow night on the debut of the radio show. We look forward to chatting with you About a big week for the cats. Congratulations. Thank you, Dok go cats, and that's head coach Kyra L Z after an overtime win for Kentucky, 90 to 86 at Mississippi State. We'll take a quick time out and we'll wrap things up when we return. This is the UK sports network. So you.
Security operations centers: a first principle idea.
"The idea of operations centers has been around seemingly forever friedrich limb in his a history of western technology suggests that the concept goes back as far as five thousand bc amazing anytime an organization grows big enough either in terms of function or one. Small team can't do everything. Leaders have built these centers to men's the workflow and status of the various groups into coordinate. If you fast forward to the early days of the technological revolution we started seeing organizations. That began looking like a modern day sark. But we're quite there yet. The classic example is how nasa managed space missions starting way back in nineteen fifty eight now for those. Who don't know me. I'ma space geek specifically. I love everything about the space race between the russians and the americans during the nineteen sixties in fact as a side note the washington post lillian cunningham produced a thirteen episode podcasts. About that very thing last year it is called moon rise and i highly recommended. But did you know that when neil armstrong and buzz aldrin landed on the moon in nineteen sixty nine that the russians had a remote controlled spacecraft up there at the same time. I didn't know that. Until i listen to the moon rise podcasts. The russians crashed into a moon mountain as armstrong and aldrin. We're flying back to the lunar module so maybe that is why the russians don't advertise that much. But i digress. One of my favorite space movies is paolo. Thirteen directed by ron howard. And one of the things. I love about that. Movie is how it depicts the energy and sense of purpose of an operation center. Here's the actor. Ed harris in a virtuoso performance playing gene kranz the real life nasa flight director delegating tasks his crew of operational teams on what they need to do to get apollo thirteen at home. And the meantime whenever frozen command module to power it up another but the re entry batteries. We've been tried before we've never even stimulated it before gene. We're going to have to figure it out. i want people in our simulators working reentry scenarios. I want you guys to find. Every engineer designed ever switch every circuit transistor and every lightbulb. It's up there then. I want you to talk to the guy. Knee assembly line actually built the thing. Find out how to squeeze every aunt at both of these goddamn machines. I want this mark all the way back to earth with time to spare never lost an american in space where surest not gonna lose one on my watch. Failure is not an option. If that doesn't bring chills down your spine you might be dead. I'm just saying when telephone network started appearing in the early nineteen twenty s phone companies like eighteen bill traffic control bureaus to handle long distance traffic issues by the early nineteen sixties. At and t. Handled most telephone switching through mechanical devices and build a network control center or noc to manage it. At and t. Historians consider this to be the first knock ever built by nineteen seventy seven bell systems had built the first national knock in bedminster new jersey which looked a lot like modern knocks. Today there wasn't much security yet but if there was any knock operators were doing it in the us intelligence community the nineteen sixties were fraud with international incidents like the cuban missile crisis of nineteen sixty to the arab israeli six day war in nineteen sixty seven the us pueblo capture and nineteen sixty eight the prague spring crisis and czechoslovakia also nineteen sixty eight in the one. Twenty-one shootdown crisis in one thousand nine hundred sixty nine the. nsa decided that. They needed an operation center to manage their efforts. Across a wide swatch of international activity. Based on the freedom of information request. The nsa released a document in two thousand seven that described the formation of the first national cigarette operations center or insomniac in one thousand nine hundred seventy three and according to charles berlin. I hit him on lincoln and the answer me. He's a former in sock director. The innocent kept adding more responsibility to over time. He said that it's secret. Sauce was when the nsa decided to pair offense or cigarette defense or comsec in the same place. Eventually they replaced the word singing in the title with security. In other words it became the national security operations center. Berlin said that when cyber came along years later the toll of michigan came too big to keep in the in sock in the. Nsa created the national cyber threat operations center or the in talk to deal with it. But with the addition of the concept mission these operations centers started to lean toward defensive security on the government side and in the aftermath of the morris worm which was the first destructive internet worm
Netflix's Q3 demonstrates the dreaded 'pandemic pull-forward in demand'
"Netflix's just reported in its worst ever earnings MISS INVESTORS BANS quarterly results from the streaming giant Jillian. Boston's on the West Coast this morning joins us with what went wrong in Q. Three. Was it Netflix's or wasn't the analysts Julia? How well expectations that were certainly high and then? Netflix shares today we see them plummeting on the biggest earnings myths and snatch flicks went public those earnings falling nineteen percent short of those analysts expectations now with Netflix. Of course, always about that subscriber number, it fell short of the companies already lowered expectations the company outages two point. Two million subscribers in the quarter in guided the addition of fewer subscribers in the fourth quarter then anticipated. Now, that's not all looking ahead to next year. NETFLIX's warns of some very tough comparisons but co-ceo hastings saying he's not concerned about competition we compete. So broadly, we compete for time against you know tiktok to as well as HBO as well as I tell really, the limiter for us is you know what's the quality of our service How often how many nights you say Oh my God I want to go to Netflix and and watch the next show. In contrast to Netflix snap shares soaring after beating expectations about twenty one percent beating expectations really across the board snaps revenue growing fifty two percent more than double the growth rate than analysts projected with a surprise profit of one cent per share that's compared to the five cents per share loss than analysts anticipated. Now, Becky what's really interesting here is that snap has really benefited from Kovin pushing advertisers to try their augmented reality ad formats and also guys there was a subtle dig at facebook sounds like they may have benefited from that facebook ad boycott well. Julius stay here we want to bring in another voice to the conversation as well. Rich Greenfield joins US right now he's of course, partner and Co founder light said partners and I want to start with Netflix's first. Then we'll get back to the snap story, but but Netflix, you say the real story here is that the bear story is gone. What do you mean these are disappointing numbers, but it does come after a very strong first-half for the company for for a subscriber ads. Yeah. Look look I heard the commentary that you were just talking about in terms of like the biggest. History of Netflix. But remember this is a company where again people are very focused on the subscriber trends and the subscriber trends in the first two quarters far out seated in terms of the beat far outside at Amiss here I think the real story that people should be talking about is that not only are they generating substantial free cash flow this year, but even next year as production is in full swing again, they're talking about that they may be at break even free cash flow and so the financing the sort of the bear thesis on Netflix for years was that they. Don't have the money to finance all of this content they're going to run into capital, they won't be able to finance. They won't be able to raise capital and that was sort of the the the bear thesis that's been ongoing for years and years. They're basically self financing now. So the view that Netflix has a capital raising issue is now gone, and if you start to look out over the next few years in terms of their pricing power and you're starting to move up price in Canada recently in Australia, we think the US will happen either in or early Q. One. Pricing Power and all of a sudden you don't have any cash flow needs in terms of having to raise capital. This thing's going to generate dramatic free cash flow and you're going to see the scale to billions and billions of free cash flow a year. That's what people should be talking about look beating lieutnant missing numbers is never a good thing for stock I get why it's down today make sense that it's down at Ted a huge run this year but I think this is more about consolidating as it continues to move higher. into. The point I think the company said on the call that if there had been another forty eight hours in the quarter, they would have met their projections or even exceeded some of the projections on this. But but when you see a pullback of about five point, three percent today does that represent a buying opportunity to you given how much the stock is already run this year? Absolutely because I think the thing that you need to be thinking about Becky is when you think about what's happened over the last sort Of like six weeks, what's really become clear one, the pandemic isn't just disappearing. You're seeing it flare up again in the US you're seeing flare up across a lot of Europe it even parts of Australasia like this is not going away. So we're all going to be more homebound or in terms of you know kind of entertainment activity for a longer period of time unfortunately over the course of the next six to nine months at the same time, the movie calendar has cleared out like all of the movie studios have. Essentially delayed all of their content two, second-half twenty, twenty one if not into twenty, twenty two, and so the path for Netflix's the runway has been completely cleared. They were going to be putting out movie after movie they've got a Ron, Howard movie hillbilly comes out in a few weeks an animated feature over the moon there's just a ton of content coming and really no competition and so I think that's GonNa really well,
'Happy Days' cast reunites to support Wisconsin Democrats
"A reunion of the seventies TV hit Happy Days is now confirmed, but not everyone's on board for France's happy days. It's a pretty happy day reunion of cast members, including Ron Howard, Henry Winkler, Marion Ross and more, and the whole thing will benefit the Democratic Party of Wisconsin as the show was set in Milwaukee change you have to, but not everyone's onboard. Scott Baio, who played Chachi on the show, is a supporter of President Trump. He responded to Ron Howard's tweet about the reunion, saying it's a shame to use classic shows like Happy Days about Americana to promote an anti America. In socialist so safe to say he won't be at the

Britain’s Unwritten Constitution Suddenly Looks Fragile
"The u._k. U._k. of wednesday's decision by her majesty the queen elizabeth the second herself to approve prime minister boris johnson's request to suspend parliament until the middle of october now a lot of people saw this as boris johnson's way to prevent his adversaries from blocking no deal brexit before the october thirty first deadline deadline and some people went a lot further than that shutting down parliament in order to force through an audio brexit which will do untold and lasting damage to the country is not democracy. It's dictatorship and if m._p.'s don't come together next week to stop boris johnson in his tracks then i i think today will go down in history. As the yuki democracy died scotland's first minister nicholas sturgeon there simon my british friend <hes> so often we we asked this of your countrymen when they come on this show what is going on. We always have the same refrain when it comes to brexit. What's the latest here. What is the significance against of what nicholas sturgeon calls the end of democracy on the island. I was thinking on the way he had told that we could spend the entire hour discussing british parliamentary procedure all the vagaries areas of operating with an unwritten constitution but it might just be easier to explain the rules of cricket to emirati. We'd get further and understand more. This is a huge huge move by boris johnson fueled by seventeen point two million voters who in that referendum three years ago now said they wanted to pull britain written out of the european union. He is essentially risking a constitutional crisis and i think even a societal crisis to try and get britain out of the european union but the problem is <hes> that he is a prime minister himself with no democratic mandate of his own replaced theresa may as a result of the votes of members visit of the british conservative party less than naught point. One percent of the british public essentially voted him in he has inherited exactly the same parliamentary array of forces parliamentary difficulties that tied to resume up in knots. We sit here and we see that shock of blond hair and we think oh. Everything's changed in the okay. Nothing's changed. The only thing that's changed is the occupant of number ten downing street and he's doing the one thing that five members of his own cabinet argued less than a month ago would be profoundly undemocratic and autocratic namely an enron an end run around parliament and he's gonna prorogue it which is a fancy name for saying suspended activities <hes> for several days i mean the number of days involved is open to debate but for five weeks parliament will not meet in what he hopes is a move that will allow him to pave the way if necessary to pull britain out out of the european union without an agreement with brussels something that he knows parliament would vote to block and there's a fundamental issue here which is sovereignty supporters of brexit have argued since the debate was first mooted that one of the reasons why britain needs to leave the european union is because we need to get our sovereignty back but britain sovereignty is enshrined in what we are all taught at grade. School is the mother of parliaments so the idea that in order to get british sovereignty back. You actually may have to suspend the activities of parliament. It's a real rhetorical problem for boris johnson and he's going to be facing. I think major protests over the next few days as a result. I cannot tell you what hugh hugh grant famous british actor tweeted about this because it would get us fined by the f._c._c. and get me thrown off the air but ron howard rank and file people reacting is this similar to what happens in the united states where there's sort of outrage on one side shrugs on another side and people sort of move onto the next outrage or is this really permeating british societies permeating me any british society because while <hes> obviously labor is is opposed to this but you also have dettori's conservatives who are posted as to you and you just saw that you know former british prime minister. John major has jumped in on on a on a lawsuit to try and stop this activity. It seems that johnson's johnson is betting that the e._u.

Review: With the latest 'Grinch,' there's nothing much new
"So awhile ago, I wanna say number of months ago, we got shown a first teaser. Well, first of all got announced that oh, they're doing another grant of yet, another remake the Grinch for those that aren't aware. They did the original amid movie with Boris Karloff voice in the grant and narrating. And that one for a long time was the only one there was no Grinch anything in two thousand which I did Naji know this until recently that that's when it came out. It doesn't seem like it's been that long to me. But I digress. They didn't live action grant where Ron Howard. Did it directed it? Jim Carrey was the Grinch in it. In a lotta ways that it kind of expand on the story and kind of filled in gaps that we really didn't get in the book, or in the animated film that you know, we had had many many years ago, and some people were mixed about it. I personally really enjoyed it. I thought you know, Jim Carey did a great job the castle did a really great job had a good soundtrack, and it was a different fun film. And as I was watching the teasers for this new grant and the trailers, you know, where Benedict Cumberbatch this time voices. The grant turns out Keenan Thompson is in it as like a neighbor of the grant, and then then the girl from murder, she wrote her name's on the tip my tongue. It's she voices the mayor whose only for a little bit. So anyways. So this film. I was if you about it had my doubts, Mike, you know, what it could be good or it could be really bad. There's no in between. And I was able to see this movie this week. And yeah. I'm going to bring it to you everything about this film. I do warn you there may be some spoilers in here. I'm going to try to keep it as spoiler free as I can. But at the same time, I'm gonna you know, kind of this is going to be kind of a, you know, just true review. It's what's going to be so anyways. So this movie like I said has been come about just the grant it's computer animated. It's done by aluminum entertainment, the same company that's done. You know, the first three despicable me movies. It did minions which really my opinion were all actually really good movies, by the way, I had my dad's about minions to and I left going right minions. They did a very good job. So I thought you know, that going, you know, what I don't think it's going to be bad. I just didn't think. So. So anyways, I go and see this movie, which by the way is only like an hour, forty minutes long. It's not really a long movie. The live action version that Ron Howard derive. Acted was I think closer to two hours, and I'm just going to say it, the this movie is terrible. It has a really really really bad film is just man I was just like in shock. How bad it was.
