"I feel like young people really get it. So I'm optimistic. I'm hopeful that we can still turn it around in time to enjoy a sandwich in another 50 years. This is a much more political book than your others where you're really talking about the state of the world. But you also managed to keep it really, really funny. But there isn't a more serious side that seems to be coming out, not only in your writing, but also in your acting. Your role in debs, for example, as forest, the head of a tech company who suffered a tragedy and trying to sort of remake the world in order to potentially save himself and his family. What was it like for you to do a totally serious role like this? I mean, I'm such a massive fan of Alex Garland to begin with specifically for his films, ex Machina and annihilation among I mean, he was a novelist first. He wrote the beach, which became popular movie. So to get to work with him on this beautiful 8 episode series was just a gift in so many ways, but it was kind of a wonderful throwback to my time in Chicago theater where my best role was in this dramatic play as it was sort of a villainous Irish indentured servant who the audience loved to hate. I always thought that was gonna be my Wheelhouse, like Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor kind of like dastardly charming bad guys or something. And so getting to work on material, that heady and that dramatic was just an incredible gift. The cast was so incredible. Alex's, you know, all of the crew heads, the key, the department keys that always work with them. The visual effects people, the camera people, the music people. It's just an incredible experience. And it was a relief that the world was going to allow me to be a thespian to be an actor that I rolled the dice correctly enough that I get to do something as effective as Ron Swanson, but then I'm granted permission to still continue as an artist and do more work. So I'm really grateful for that and look forward to trying some more stuff. I just thought I'd share with you my wife came in at the very, I guess the last 15 or so minutes of the last episode. And I've been binge watching over the last couple of days. And she was watching you, and she said, is he a good guy or a bad guy? And I looked at her and I said, well, kind of both. She nodded..

"30% off your purchase that's 30% off at Joybird dot com, forward slash matters. You almost got a part on Will & Grace that ultimately went to Woody Harrelson and you also auditioned for the role of Michael Scott in the office. You didn't get either, but your audition created the seed for the casting director that became your character Ron Swanson in parks and rec. And is it true that when you got the call from your producer, make sure you sobbed for 30 minutes upon hearing you got the role? I mean, 30 minutes might be, it may have been more like 28 minutes. Professionally, it was all of the parts that I didn't get for so many years paid off so powerfully with such an emotional catharsis because all of those other roles weren't right. You know, it would have been wonderful to get a cool part on a show, but we've seen the examples you've cited, the reason I didn't get the roles is because there were better people and finally the role found me that no one ostensibly could have done better. So life clicked in for me at age 38, I think I was. It was like the end of The Lord of the Rings or something where I was like, oh my God, it all makes sense. Everything Gandalf ever said to me, suddenly hit home. And so I had a very emotional gratitude filled reaction. You played Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation for all of the show's 7 seasons to great acclaim. You won the television critics association award for individual achievement.

"Browser tears. Finding the one that's right for you. Check it out as monica said. Give it a try for a month. You'll love it if you don't you can you can lower it or you know you can come back later. Check it out sloppy with that said onto our final story of the free thirty. So are you a fan of the show parks and recreation on aci lights it in the beginning for the same reason i used to like family guy. Hey family guy now just stupid in my opinion but occasionally it's covered. It's not it's really clever. It does make me laugh sometimes but not usually because like this profound wit but usually because it identifies something gross or stupid that that you just didn't realize was true and i guess that's humor but it's thing but in the first season before it got cancelled and renewed i loved it because stuey instead of being a pervert patsy so the baby was a nazi any hated his mother. And if you're a new mother was a little baby. The kid peas in your face. He bites you. He screams the eu. And you think it's just being a baby and that it's still loves you and you're like i still love you. You're so cute. You smell good but a more rational explanation is that it actually hates you and that was very clever was approaching similarly parks and recreation like it generally but i loved the libertarian. Because he just took libertarianism. He was so unapologetic about it that he would say things that sounded crazy and an offensive. Like government is a constant battle to destroy you and steal everything that you've worked for. You know whatever. Which i think is true but people like oh. That's ridiculous are one of his famous lines was child. Labor laws are ruining this country. And it's kind of funny. But if you read libertarian treatises on how impoverished countries that darn allows. Let their kids at the kids star you. I don't know you know that that is not the hill. I'm gonna die on but he's just funny because he's so unapologetic and shocking. That i enjoyed watching the way my dad. He's like well. it actually. Has this other thing that in that. My dad's like all in the family but he didn't understand why the conservative was such a dope and an a hole so carroll o'connor was a doberman ale but he also would say like sound conservatives things which would just make my father crazy that it came out of that guy is now and i think that's what the parks and recreation guys all about but for me like he. He was definitely more right than wrong. Haven't watched the show too long time..

Those of both also terrible character terrible people and yet the parks and recreation staff a so much more forgiving to the them. Because i don't work in the library eight. It's like she's introduced this kind of a woman who as ruined out of really destructive relationship with with wrong and it is awful and you know the worst thing about her though. She works for the library site. And i think run says something like the worst person in the world working the worst place in the world and they just despise the library. And it's just it's obvious. I mean obviously done in tongue-in-cheek in the program but he's just wonderful to to see these people really despise the library and this woman who she's she's awful she also like ron when they get together.

Problem, too, is that it's always out of a can, you know? And look at it. Sometimes I can't tell if it's cranberry sauce or beat. No, it just it just doesn't do it for me.

Nevertheless, I feel like it's more than a condiment, though I feel like it is It should be considered aside. You could have a side of gravy be. I mean, it's just so universal and it's just It's not catch up. I gotta tell you that you can't get a gravy bottle at eight. You me.

Rounding out this list Green beans number nine and Mac and cheese number 10. I think that number 10 in all this probably hurts my heart the most. It should be a little harder.

I know and we actually had somebody that did that to us early on and I I never heard from them again. I don't think that they listen anymore. Oh, well, I'm scared him away if we disappoint. I don't know maybe never look up what we actually look like. All right. Well, if you want to send us an email, you can mail us a story or just a letter anything to say hi to PO Box 264, Geneva, Illinois 60130 Or you can also leave us a voicemail at 630-448-2138.

If you do send us the snail mail send it to go sleep podcast put that instead of Rebecca wage at like like both of our listeners male. I think they did that but I want the I want the the post office guy to see this to see ghostly podcast. Wonder what this is. Exactly. Yeah. Nice. We need more male men listening to us.

It doesn't include my neither. Okay. All right. Well if we both voted yes and cancel each other out that's usually what I figure anyway, so no, that's that's super interesting. That means we both got a chance. Well, I mean, I'm just thinking that that means that this is actually something kind of needed. We kind of need to talk about this absolutely if people are fifty-fifty on this. Wow. Want to lean it one way or the other. Yeah, then the end of the month. We'll see. Yep. So make sure that you keep on voting and we will have an episode at the end that is on the 28th and that will be our conclusion episode. So you can let us know if your votes changed at all.

Storylines from Roland Garros 2020

"Everyone John, we're up here in this week's sports illustrated tennis podcast late Wednesday night we have reached the round of four. We've reached the semi. Draws so Jamie and I will talk some tennis from Roland Garros and. We would try to keep it sufficiently general. So the school be absolutely by the time you're listening Jamie how are you? I'm good. How are you from a little little cold but no complaints it's been spin. French Open like no other, it's been an interesting interesting time so far but you know the the good news is Kobe hasn't really become the story, and if we're talking about the chilly weather and not a global pandemic, that's a win in itself. In here, we are at the business end of our second major in four weeks. You're cold or office cold. I think some other players are cold I think joke just cold I've seen a lot of PARKAS. I actually double check the weather temperature today because I said, how cold is it? Really there people are inferred jackets and you know Winter Winter Parkas I think some people look like they're going skiing. Is it really that cold I? Mean you're you have survived many New York winters what's going on? Oh boy I'll say a few things. One of them is that whatever the temperature is it is that an accurate indicator is has that sort of British chill where you're. Just coal to the bones. You know I mean obviously for for athletes it's it's different. You're running around your your body's warming up than stopping as rob pointed out I think some of this is just what people are accustomed to. There's a part of me that doesn't mind it. You know we we played tennis in extreme conditions or extreme heat must failure I think it probably speaks well of the sport that same players that win when it's one hundred twenty degrees or winning when it's forty nine degrees. I would say that I think this has had a bit of an impact, not so much on the level of play but I don't think the caliber of play has dropped because everybody is. Dressed like they're going skiing I think it hasn't changed the mood in the vibe and we've got Novakova did and it's it's just funny how these tournament sort of change as they progress but there there is not been as far as i. can tell a whole lot of Kobe fear doesn't seem to be much of the talk it doesn't come up much in press conferences. Does, players like Daniel Collins shoot it down, but it's been if this is not the French Open that people are used to and I thought at the US Open the apparel manufacturers missed a golden opportunity not to do more with the surface area of these masks. Why not put a? Cough alligator or Nike swoosh mask, and here it's time to show off the winter gear in the Lacoste and Nike. And Adidas Park aware because as soon as the vitamins you've seen like as soon as the players. Get done leaving the court they as a record it Patrick of did it they all put on Ski Jack So It's been a twist on the tournament but again I mean. For the last six months you and I have been talking about. Bubbles and pandemics, and how are we going to get athletes from all over the world? Into into a common spot. And the fact that the talk has been a lot about. Tennis and conditions and scheduling and doubles and singles in wide open draws. And not about players tested positive I think is a good sign. For sure. I wanted to ask you I was reading and piece by CPS ignore and he he said that you know it was about the handshakes in about, of course, how they're really not happening anymore the racket touch. is now has now replaced it, and so I actually thought twenty because in the past few matches, we've actually seen some players after you know after the match in in the t match, he did it and there was some others where you know. They go to the night in a do this very strange hesitant high five or maybe there is a little bit of an embrace and course you sit there and you cringe and you say, oh no, they're touching each other amino they're so close I talk about Kobe and all this What is Of the players talked about the handshake what about you just watching? On my end I feel like You know a lot of after really great matches long matches. It's nice to see two opponents kind of embrace each other or just kind of you know pat each other on the back for for a hard-fought match and we don't see that what what are your thoughts on on just the lack of handshakes in this cova time. Yeah. You see handshakes like if you have. I have this thing where like I'll watch an old movie your you'll cringe and say, no social distance, oh. Yes. This was a bill before March of twenty twenty. So, yeah you see these these. Sort of belly paths or the even the on the shoulder at the you know the net you know I, mean I always loved the handshake I recited would've tennis is nice quirks. You spend hours battling with this opponent, and then the very first person you bake human contact with is that same opponent When Ron Swanson say about handshakes after the for dry and. In three seconds or something like that it's it's great. Now I mean the racket tap is a little bit strange in some players are are not even doing that other players are as as you know, there are have been a couple of exceptions. Dominant team seems to be a a serial offender which probably ultimately speaks well of him and it has has actually gone gone the hand I. He did what after the US Open finally did there were some some contact against Schwartzman I. Don't know I feel at some level you've been. You've been hitting a sweaty tennis ball back and forth for three hours at your opponent is touch. you know none of us are perfectly convicted and our Kobe protocol and the same person who watches groceries is. Also holding the poll on the subway. Think I think we all have a inconsistencies. I have to think if you've been using the same tennis ball as as another opponent and your bodily fluid is getting on that same tennis ball I don't know if you brush palms at the net for a second to is that really so bad but yeah. I mean there are a lot of sort of jarring little twists I mean the lack of a crowd I think has been especially acute here in France especially when French players have taken the court because often the the fans try to impose themselves on the match here Dan. Is it really happening? it'll be interesting to see what stays in what doesn't I mean if I never see another ball kid and all towel again, that's that's probably a good thing It's very strange doing a courtside interviewed a math. It'll be interesting to see I mean I think we're already sort of looking to twenty twenty, one I suspect there will be him shakes at the twenty twenty one Australian Open because the players will of quarantine for two weeks and essentially what what I'm wants the players were there. And test negative in are in this this quarantine situations that they they don't even have to wear masks

"So Jim, I think you hit the nail on the head with Ron Swanson's quote. They're very true. Now, I'm going to go back in and say Jim is not a rich white woman. So, I believe he identifies more of the Ron Swanson, which means he's a whiskey guy and I feel that I like me. I would definitely take a whiskey on the rocks for sure and I loved an old fashioned. But if I was trying to feel fancy, I would Channel my inner or w w and you know get Martini so Jim, thank you so much for your comments. We got Dave from Rhode Island was update. He says vodka arguably has the power. Sorry Dave's, and apparently has the power to make me drop things on the floor wage, which I do need to pick up not for this segment, but the next actually I'm kind of a giant he Hall here. Sorry folks provides Paul podcast improve. Oh, okay. Sorry. I need to know my time stamps that way like don't go older with this song. Egg meant trying to keep the show even tighter than has been the past and we've been in that hour mark. I'm going to try and keep this at a cool 45 minutes, but do that I can save some money on a store in these episodes for y'all. So sorry about that. But anyways day from Rhode Island, he says vodka arguably has the most variations end off Labor's out of all alcohols can mix it with so many different options as well. That is very true since so long. I agree with Craig from Earth's orig. I think Craig Craig from Earth's original comment is very spot on and it's really like a glass half-full half-empty. What's your worldview situation? And I was kind of speaking for Dave early on where it's like If you're looking just for a liquor to drink straight up vodka is pretty boring. I agree that whiskey definitely has more Dimension. But if you're looking for a clean page Outlet not clean Powell, but like, you know a a blank canvas where you can add other flavors to it. Vaca is going to be a better a better participate in that party. Then whiskey will be whiskey can have some friends but it can be friends with everyone like vodka count. You can do some cool stuff. Like I used to distill candy cane vodka so I can make something candy cane shots. There's it can really take on like a lot of dope flavors. And if you're if interested in just being like Oh, I want to get tuned up but I want like, you know, the sky's the limit with my flavors vodka is your Preferred Choice. So that makes a lot of sense day from Rhode Island. I'm with you on your comment dead. But I feel like if you're going to be in Dave's camp. You know, you're just not living your best life unless you really like, you know, push the limits of your vodka distilling, you know, like what kind of flavors can you get in there? Cause I still make fantastic, you know, like like for example, what if when your dog falls asleep useless stick appalled and your mason jar or vodka, you know, she a nice little earthy bark tones. And you know, when that evening of distilling is done. Maybe you you do some lemon zest juice in there sometime, you know, some empty bullet shells can swirl them around for like a month take them out and then you gotta work this in with your schedule of like feeding your yeast and making sourdough and ignoring your kids all that, but I think at the end of the day you would have a very very complex leg..

"The government is not going to be able to afford the expansion of a system that is already not affordable not only is the system going to expand with Medicare for all in terms of how many people are in it number then there are some basic things in life somebody should really sit down with Bernie Sanders Ron Swanson style and explain capitalism Hey here I am I spent a couple hours gathering a bunch apples I have X. amount of apples would you like to give me a a currency a medium of exchange something to make my worth I'm in a rather make my time worthwhile would you like to do that I would like to engage in this basic transaction knew what okay cool no you want a hundred apples I only have fifty and you have to go to the next town in order to get a a few apples or somebody else will that's why the price is what it is because he's gonna charge you acts on a charge you why but I'm convenient for you I'm right here these these very basic concept I know it sounds like this is capitalism for a third grader but that's what Bernie Sanders pretends does not exist the health care system in this country is comprised of I'm trying to add the delivery level is comprised of people who have spent their time learning skills doctors nurses nurse practitioners physician assistants etcetera learning how to do something and then being compensated for those skills in the market now we have a hyper regulated healthcare market and we have all these insurance companies that are constantly trying to find ways to move around what should be moving around response really just redistributing money to different polls based on politics based on what the political winds are determining at any point in time the biggest of all by the way is the transfer of wealth from younger people to older people as we see through Medicare that's the that's the single biggest wealth transfer that's going on people don't like to hear that it's reality it's the truth Medicare beneficiaries on average I mean a lot of them take out more twice what they pay into Medicare over the course of their life what that's a great system isn't this is that sounds like a Ponzi scheme doesn't it how can that continue on for Bernie Sanders pretends that the healthcare system is not people who could do other things doctors could decide Hey I'm I'm going to be you know I'm going to be a school teacher or I'm gonna open a dry cleaning business or whatever they could do other things but doctors want to do this and also want to be compensated same with nurses the rest people health care system well guess what if they're not paid enough for their time for the patients that they see they can't pay their rent they can't pay their medical school outstanding debts they can't keep the office open they can't pay for the usually very cross and rude ladies at least in New York City or at the front desk of pretty much every medical practice in the city who somehow are just always in a bad mood I'm just saying I know what is your New Yorker that's what you deal with sometimes it's dudes usually it's ladies but either or not very nice usually the front desk of a medical office it's probably because they deal with annoyed people who can't get in to see the doctor who don't understand their the billing practices of the insurance company and who are constantly frustrated who are doing way too much paperwork but that's the system as we have right now so Bernie Sanders is telling you was I'm gonna give you this government card that's going to say no you show up you give this to that grumpy front desk lady or man and and the doctor will take care of everything for you everything will be taken care of and you say oh wow that's that's sounds like a that's like a really really great system doesn't it and now everyone's gonna go everyone's gonna want to go to similar doctors usually right people are going to see the best doctors they can what happens when all of a sudden people are over using the systems and by that I mean what happens when there too many people that are trying to access doctors in certain areas and aren't making cost based decisions because the cost doesn't matter anymore some people argue this and they say no one goes to see a doctor Leslie less they need to really I had live had the flu before I thought going to the doctor spent a hundred fifty Bucks we told I've got the flu yeah but maybe a personal anecdotes aren't the most precisely I'll admit that the lives won't admit that but so they're gonna tell you go to the doctor going to give them a card okay the government currently doesn't pay enough under Medicaid under Medicare rather for most doctors who want to take Medicare they take Medicare hospitals for example take Medicare and then a gal which everybody in the private system in order to make up for the low cost of the services provided the low reimbursement rates for Medicare so you're going to see the doctor give them your Medicare card and and Matt and the government says okay what we're good at doctor a hundred Bucks for the doctor says look my cost for the time for being here for the V. market cost of this this visit or these procedures that I'm going to do is double that or feel let's say it's fifty percent more so now we're gonna say okay well the government's going to come in and give everybody the right to go in and demand because the government says so with a card Hey you're gonna give me services and it's going to be fifty percent less than what you need to actually cover the market cost of this how how is that going to work you're going to they're going to lose money but make it up on volume I mean that's really what Bernie Sanders is promising you and then once you add strains of the system of he's gonna wanna give healthcare to illegal aliens they're gonna get a special government card everyone's going to get his Medicare for all card this will be catastrophically expensive and by the way them the biggest the biggest expense is in someone's life for their health care tend to be at that end of life now does everybody at end of life you know this is what Michael Bloomberg brought up it sounded really mean it reminds people of the Sarah Palin the death panels right she talked about that okay well here's the reality of of pretending there won't be government death panels which is what we've been told by lives to push government healthcare on us so naive as as Bloomberg brought up and of course he's Bloomberg it was like you know I don't care about poor people is fine but a you know he says it was a nine ninety five year old guy has prostate cancer and he wants he wants let's say one of these there are treatments out there the cost half a million to up to two million dollars that are specifically genetic and genetically engineered for individual to try to be cancer does every ninety five year old who has stage four cancer get to have the government pay for that procedure what what do you think the cost of that's going to be and by the way why not do it meaning if you're if you're that person and you know in may you know maybe only got a few years left or maybe only a few months left if you don't do the procedure the government's going to pay for yeah sure right we don't do that you start to get to this former you say well how do you keep calm what will keep costs down in the system it's already on track to bankrupt us this is mass this is reality Bernie Sanders completely negates all of this he says you're gonna pay more in taxes but you're going to save money this is the this is the promise that he keeps making but he doesn't know how much it's even going to cost so how could he how could he actually no whether or not he'll be able to pay for it the answer is of course he doesn't pick up eleven percent mark this is this is Bernie Sanders challenges that how much will that cost obviously does a responsible positions but we have done our best on issue after issue in paying for them you know how how much do you have a price tag for a for all this I mean you know in and of the price tag is you will be substantially less than letting the current system go I think it's about thirty trillion and that's just for Medicare for all if you have a price tag for all this why don't we try to you mentioned making public colleges universities tuition free and canceling all student debt that's correct that's what I wanna do we pay for that a modest tax on Wall Street speculation but you said you don't know what the total price is but you know how it's gonna be paid for how do you know it's gonna be paid for if you don't know how much the price of you know I can rattle off you every nickel and every time but we have accounted for the future talk about Medicare for all we have options out there that will pay for yeah you should options he says that will pay for it the government is spend the federal budget is over three trillion dollars a year as it is approaching four trillion dollars the most honest assessments of what Bernie Sanders proposals will cost range is somewhere around around eighty to ninety trillion dollars of additional spending over the next ten years you will be working for the government whatever you do whatever profession you are in your paychecks will be going to the government and only the government for two thirds of the year this will become your reality yeah how do you get ahead how do you build well how do you choose your own future your own destiny when the government's taking sixty percent of every dollar you make and and and to make this math even put him to work it'll have to be not not sixty percent of the millionaires into billionaires it'll be sixty percent of people making sixty thousand dollars a year making forty thousand dollars a year that's the only way the master workers are a lot more of those people then there are people that are making a billion dollars a year there aren't that many billionaires and they don't have that much money despite what Bernie Sanders says when you're talking about national policy for three hundred and twenty million people three out of thirty million people I think now is a better estimate of it what Bernie Sanders is proposing if he could get it through and keep in mind he is planning to do much of this via executive order what brand and but what what if Bernie Sanders to signs that he's just gonna veto everything until we go along what if what if he's willing to shut the government down in order to get the government to be twice the size you know you don't know this guy's nuts nobody really understands what he's willing to do but we do understand that he knows nothing about how the health care system or she knows nothing about this this could even be done in his home state of Vermont which if you're trying to create a little socialist commune within America Vermont would be a pretty good start I couldn't even get this done the way that he wants you there why too expensive California can't do this why too expensive where does.

"The government is not going to be able to afford the expansion of a system that is already not affordable not only is the system going to expand with Medicare for all in terms of how many people are in it however there are some basic things in life somebody should really sit down with Bernie Sanders Ron Swanson style and explain capitalism Hey here I am I spent a couple hours gathering a bunch apples I have X. amount of apples would you like to give me a K. currency a medium of exchange something to make my worth I'm in a rather make my time worthwhile would you like to do that I would like to engage in this basic transaction how old are you what okay cool no you want a hundred apples I only have fifty and you have to go to the next town in order to get a a few apples or somebody else well that's why the price is what it is because he's gonna charge you acts on a charge of life but I'm convenient for you I'm right here these these very basic concept I know it sounds like this is capitalism for a third grader that's what Bernie Sanders pretends does not exist the health care system in this country is comprised of I'm trying to add the delivery level is comprised of people who have spent their time learning skills doctors nurses nurse practitioners physician assistants etcetera learning how to do something and then being compensated for those skills in the market now we have a hyper regulated healthcare market and we have all these insurance companies that are constantly trying to find ways to move around what should be moving around respects religious redistributing money to different polls based on politics based on what the political winds are determining at any point in time the biggest of all by the way is the transfer of wealth from younger people to older people as we see through Medicare that's the that's the single biggest wealth transfer that's going on people don't like to hear that it's reality it's the truth Medicare beneficiaries on average it means a lot and take a more twice what they pay into Medicare over the course of their life wow that's a great system is in this is that sounds like a Ponzi scheme doesn't it how can that continue on for Bernie Sanders pretends that the healthcare system is not people who could do other things doctors could decide Hey I'm I'm going to be you know I'm going to be a school teacher or a hundred open a dry cleaning business or whatever they could do other things but doctors want to do this and also want to be compensated same with nurses the rest people health care system well guess what if they're not paid enough for their time for the patients that they see they can't pay their rent they can't pay their medical school outstanding debts they can keep the office open they can't pay for the usually very cross and rude ladies at least in New York City or at the front desk of pretty much every medical practice in the city who somehow are just always in a bad mood I'm just saying I know what is your New Yorker that's what you deal with sometimes it shoots usually it's ladies but either or not very nice usually the front desk of a medical office it's probably because they deal with

Who Is John Eisenberg? Trump Lawyer Moved Ukraine Transcript to Classified Server After Vindman Complained

"And today house democrats have released transcripts of the testimony given by former US s. ambassador to ukraine maria vich and former state department official michael mckinley we will be following that but meanwhile a top lawyer for the national security council counsel john eisenberg is a no show today for a scheduled deposition on capitol hill to find a subpoena an escalating the white house's legal battle with congressional democrats let's eisenberg is a key witness for the impeachment inquiry he reportedly was instrumental and locking down the transcript of president trump's july twenty fifth phone call with ukrainian union president by moving it to top secret server so let's learn more about who eisenberg is and his role in this whole saga tom hamburger is is an investigative political reporter for the washington post and tom last week alexander van men the top ukraine advisor at the white house testified that he listened in on that call where president trump asked the president of ukraine to investigate the biden's and vinson said he raised concerns to the white house's top national security lawyer earlier john eisenberg what was eisenberg's response according to your reporting so what we learned about colonel benjamin's testimony to the a house impeachment investigators is is this he was alarmed as he listened to president trump's call with ukraine's president on july twenty five so unnerved that he went immediately after listening to the call to see john eisenberg the white house legal adviser on national security parity to tell him that what the president did was wrong that it seemed to be violating US policy and seemed to be seeking a personal sola political favors from foreign leader he testified that he went to eisenberg's office because he was alarmed by what he had heard on the call and and the only response that he offered during the meeting right after the call was that the roughed transcript of the call the summary of the call should be placed in an unusual usual spot that is the highly classified top secret vault i'm usually reserved for documents that would reveal sources and methods for US intelligence awesome military operations not for presidential call transcripts in fact we're told it's unheard of or virtually unheard of for for such a call to be placed on a classified server like that so that was one step another was a couple of days after the conversation eisenberg approached vitamin again and said i'd like you not to talk to anybody about what we discussed and what you observed in the call again a by itself perhaps there's an innocuous explanation for this but in combination with a couple of other factors that we're talking about here it seemed seemed to some is though it was part of a pattern or could have been part of a pattern or an effort to conceal or berry the substance of the president's conversation with his counterpart in ukraine you also write that by the time vin men came to eisenberg and late july eisenberg was already familiar with concerns among white house awesome officials about the administration's attempts to pressure ukraine for political purposes what did he know and why is this important to note eisenberg was aware of concerns from the national security staff because a couple of weeks earlier on july ten presidents alinsky had sent a delegation of ukrainian indian officials to the white house to try to shore up relations with the US they couldn't figure out why it seemed there was a delay in getting face as to face meeting set up between the newly elected president and president trump and there was some concerns about whether legally mandated a military aid would be flowing to the ukraine and so they came to the white house these two emissaries end-july ten and had a meeting with the national security council staff but also with three other they're individuals one is a special envoy appointed by president trump mr samland another was energy secretary rick perry and the third was a special on on void to ukraine volcker and in the course of meeting with this group those three led by sandra fund seemed to be pushing a request for assistance in getting information that might be helpful to the president politically the conversation was a bit subtle but it so alarmed armed john bolton in this meeting that they had on july ten that he quickly called it to a close and then he later asked one of his associates the national security advisor sir for ukraine to report what was observed to legal office and so the the place that those bolton advisers went was once again john eisenberg so on july ten there was the first warning of an executive branch effort this time not involving the president personally but involving some of his top appointees to seemingly introduce a question of seeking political favors from the new ukrainian administration as a condition for getting a meeting meeting with president or getting needed aid has eisenberg or his lawyer responded to any of this eisenberg has so so far declined to comment and the white house has declined to comment the response that we have is really the response that is visible today on capitol hill which is where in the impeachment investigators hoped john eisenberg would be sitting to answer questions there will be an empty chair eisenberg is another of several figures at the top level of advisors to the president who are declining to respond to subpoenas and request testify in this impeachment inquiry and so he is one of these figures who is now part of this constitutional drama that we're witnessing between the demands of the legislative branch and the claims of special privilege by the white house in the office of the president and those other folks michael ellis also of the national security council as well as robert blair and brian mccormick of the white house office of management and budget they're all skipping this meeting as you said these meetings what will the the democrats do next now that these folks have decided not to testify so there are others who are facing request to testify who are even more senior one is john bolton the research resigned recently as national security adviser he remember is the guy who is at the top of this national the security establishment and in a sense the buck stops with him he would be a critically important witness and his testimony is considered vital so much to a follow that's tom hamburger investigative political reporter for the washington post tom thank you so much good to be with you

I was on the Ben and Leslie wedding two part episode in a tuxedo which started off as a gala event. And then they said why don't we make this our wedding? And then they kinda turned it into the wedding. So it was cool. I got to work on it. I think for four or five days through my friend Shimo hair who plays Jerry on the show. And he got me the gig. And I got paid for it. And I met some cool people, and I got to be on that episode in a group shot with the entire cast of the show while Leslie, Nope is on stage talking to them and thanking them for their help with the event before she announces that they're going to have their wedding, and it's a cool shot. And Jim actually got the whole cast assign it for me, and I need to find that that is packed away since we moved. But I gotta hang that up on the wall for when people come over as one of my price possessions, because it's pretty sweet signed by the cast, and it's me and the entire cast minus, Leslie, but she signed it, Amy Poehler, so very cool stuff.

And I said I always want to start on the show in the same way. Like, a lotta hit podcast and shows that I listened to do and randomly just said what it be in the first episode and that kind of stuck. So he said he says it to his friends at work, and they said Where'd you get that from and he asked me about it.

Breanna Stewart calls out NCAA for lack of respect to women's game during March Madness

"But first a brief rant and listen. I could go on a lot longer than I'm going to keep it. I'm going to keep it quick. But brianna Stewart called out the NC double A for their lack of respect for the women's game. During March madness, she pointed out that the March madness handle tweeted out Ron Swanson gift and said when you find out there are no March madness games until Thursday mad face hashtag Sweet Sixteen there were of course, women's games. There were eight women's games on the twenty fifth. And even though the March madness handle says it is for the men's tournament and forces women to go with. The NC double A WB handle most people don't know that. And March madness is gender neutral. It is it is not about the men's tournament trademark to the men's tournament. It actually started with high school hoops. And so when even that handle if they want to say, we're bummed the men's games aren't playing go. Check out the women, that's fine. But the idea of constantly being the default. So that when John Moran has the first triple double since dream on green, and no one mentioned in the men's tournament. Because Sabrina UNESCO is has eighteen triple doubles this year and just had one in the tournament last year in multiple women have recently, again, it's not about people not understanding. It's about giving context. So that you can give props words do when people say that you NBC upsetting UVA is the first time internment history will no it's not because the Harvard women did it in the nineties. It's not that hard to say in men's tournament history. It's not that hard to add men's and how do I know? No that because women always have to do it. We always have to add women's to everything. And I think when you have schools even schools where the women's program is more successful than the men's and they always had to add the W or the women's to their handles to their social handles. They always have to add the modifier. So people know they're talking about them. It's insulting. It's insulting to say. Lady. Huskies lady giants it's insulting especially when it's something. That's a male thing. Like stallions lady stallions that makes no sense. That sounds like an unfortunate accident for the horse. But you know, what I'm saying? And again, people push back so hard on this. When I tweet about it. They say, oh, you knew what they meant. Well, why is it so difficult to add a modifier so that you say men's tournament women's tournament? Because then you're at least respecting that there is another tournament going on. And that those women are working just as hard putting in just as much time. Whether or not you want to watch them whether or not it's your priority. Give them the respect that they're that they've earned and to me we see this all the time with Little League World series. Perfect example, are they the best at what they do of anybody in the universe know, why are we interested because we tell people the stakes and we tell people the stories when we do that with women's sports for the Olympics for the World Cup for Serena Williams, when we give people the stakes and the stories people are interested.

"And then you go back and try to eat a Snickers bar, and it's a really sweet and kind of weird, right? And why is it falling apart of my mouth is perfect. Like, the whole thing is like the urbi. They lost their taste for like. Well, I don't know if I want to just do that. Right. I maybe I want to be Ron Swanson instead want to go back to work on my canoe or chop some wood or whatever. But high quality leisure is crucial. We've lost it. When you bring it back. It's a completely different experience last. But not least you have a really interesting practical take away, and we'll in the worksheet, of course, go over some of the decluttering detox and the reintroduction, of course, in detail in your book is where the rest of that is. But the conversation office hours, I thought it was a really interesting practical takeaway that everyone should implement right now. Tell. Tell me about this because I immediately wanted to do this. And I was like, wait a minute. I told Jen my wife who schedules everything for me. I was like, okay. I know this is a pain. But I want you to basically move all this stuff to this other time, and she was like a God. But it's going to save me so much, and so far I love the idea of being able to ignore certain things and be like, I'll do them later in a way that compartmentalize the pain. Yeah. Well, I mean phone calls turn out to be very effective because you're actually doing analog interaction. And there's limited confidence in these other types of affects that makes it fires up that social part of the brain. So phone calls are much much better than text based communication. The problem is the overhead right because we've kind of lost the cultural structure around. I'm just going to call you up. You're probably not going to answer people aren't expecting phone calls. And so the hack you're talking about is basically you have some set times that you know, you're going to be available. And then when whenever you're in a circumstance where you're talking or interacting with someone that you would like to have a phone call with you can get rid of all the overhead by just saying. Here's. My office hours from four to five on Tuesdays and Thursdays, or whatever it is. I'm always available. You can always call me. Here's my number. There's no there's no social landmines there. You know him available. You know, I'm happy to take just call it. I'll probably pick and it's an easy hack. It gives you a lot more of this higher quality interaction, and then you can just people towards this. When you get the, hey, Jordan, like que-, grab coffee or hop on a call or whatever I'm sure you get a lot of those to be able to be able to say like, hey, always happy to talk to people like you can always call me between these hours on this day. It's like a small hack, in fact, one review or even made fun of me because I said so obvious. But I don't think it is actually I mean, it's a simple thing. But it really works. Really? Well, and so I think it's worth emphasizing. So I'm glad you brought it up the the reason more people don't do this is because since the phones with us all the time the point is we're reachable all the time. But that doesn't necessarily have to be the case nobody before cellphones. If somebody called your phone, and you weren't there and you didn't pick up. Nobody would be like what the hell. Let's go. Going on what's going on? Is it Sunday? I'm not in the office. And people would be like, oh, of course. Now, though. Hey, I called your phone twice this weekend. You didn't answer. Yeah. I didn't want to. I don't answer my phone except on at five thirty to six o'clock five days a week. And the other time I'm not reachable by phone. People are worried people I think people are too worried that everyone knows got really annoyed at them. If they don't have the phone with them all the time..
