"In the sources and you can see the wheels turning and how they make those decisions and the editing, the score, all of it is so kind of sensitively calibrated around telling those stories. I was so kind of bowled over by what they did with it. Well, I guess you mentioned there are other upcoming projects that you're doing with HBO. And I wonder, are they just before I even asked part B this question? Are they related to similar types of misconduct? Or is it completely unrelated subject matter? Well, you can see in my print reporting up to an including the piece in the last New Yorker about surveillance and espionage culture, some of the themes that I've been looking at and the types of stories over the last few years, you know, you can track that and beyond that I can't talk about investigations that are totally totally. No, the only reason I ask is because I'm curious if you have found that establishing yourself as somebody very well known for on this particular kind of subject matter has that made it, as that made your job in reporting on other subject matter, easier or harder. I will just note I don't know if you were laughing at this when it was said, but this was on the less than a year after your New Yorker piece was published, Colin Jost hosting the Emmys, and he says, quote, Netflix, of course, has the most nominations tonight. That's right. And if you're a network executive, that's the scariest thing you can possibly hear except maybe sir Ronan farrow is on line one close quote. And it was it got a laugh in the room and it's kind of the idea is that everybody's done that joke. Trevor Noah did that to this year at the correspondents dinner. Well, but I guess that Ronan farrow is going to come. Right, this is why I don't get invited to things, Scott. Well done. Well, I guess though, is there an element of truth to that that does it make it harder to do reporting now in some respects? Obviously, on terms of sexual misconduct, everybody probably knows that you are the most trustworthy credible person on that subject matter. But when it comes to other stuff, has it created, has it made it more difficult? I hope it's not that's not the narrow tenor of the reputation that I've built. I mean, most of my work prior to that few stories, I'm proud of that handful of stories, but most of the work that I've done, you know, my first book was about the decimation of the State Department under several administrations, all of that early writing that we talked about was on kind of international human rights stuff. The majority of The New Yorker material that I've put out is about other forms of crime and corruption, so I haven't thought of it in terms of it being like a single beat occupation in the way that you're describing. And maybe that was a seismic moment culturally. So maybe there are people who associate me closely with that. And that's something that I'm only proud of. But I think it's telling that those jokes that all those support shows up to and including this year's award shows are about people being scared of tough investigative reporter calling. They're sometimes in rooms that the joke isn't just about are people leche. I think it's like, sadly, for me, it's a double edged sword. People are scared to get my call because they know but perhaps there will be tough questions. In any genre, on any topic, I also.

"It is riveting catching kill the podcast tapes and it is a slice of the work. That ronin does. How important was the taped conversation of weinstein. Can any of this happen if you do not have that tape conversation. Does it all die all of your reporting for a year. All of the reporting killed by nbc. None of it would see the light of day without that taped conversation. It's really hard to say and it. Some it's hugely important. There's no doubt about that Hearing him in trap someone is chilling. Any of a lot of people. Very triggering It's hard tape to here. We owe that to amber gutierrez. A this incredible woman who Went to extraordinary lengths and had to show such ingenuity. I to participate in a frankly terrifying. Police sting operation Where she had to go back to a guy who had behaved in a way that really traumatized her and try to entrap them The the very next day and there were plainclothes officers. Sort of hidden around seemed then at as we lay out on the show. And you get to actually. Here's in real time. Through the state she gets separated from them and she's alone with him and it's very very scary and you can hear how scare she is And you can hear how out of line and increasingly unhinged he's getting but she did extract a confession and a. That's an incredible thing in any criminal case..

"One of the final episodes of the hbo show is a very strange thing which is sitting down for a conversation and a drink with a guy who staked me out and follow me around ostrovsky And i talk about in in the book and in the show Just how audit was to have someone come out of the woodwork and broker a secret meeting and say hey you know here all the pictures from when i was when i was following you around. That's crazy. And i wanna get into the specifics of that in a bit. And i do want to touch on all of these stories because i do have a lot of questions about what the women here. That seems remarkably unfair. But when you started this entire process and you're trying to do a casting couch story on just the understood. Hollywood thing of the way you get parts for sexual favors. You imagined the highest point of that story was what well as initially conceived. It was part of my usual beat at the today show and this again gets more into to my story which is a little separate from the show. These two things are designed to be complementary can read the book and you can watch the show and and there's some overlap they connect but It's almost like you know you get to spend more time with characters that lived only more briefly in in the plot of the book where there's lots of different things going on in the show you get to spend an hour with people who showed incredible bravery and understand a little more how that emerged from their back stories But in the in the book do a little bit. Were into my own backstory. Which is i was. Add something of low point. When i started reporting on this on. You got a little bit of this in the rich mchugh profile on the show to rich being the producer i mentioned because when he first was paired with me i had had a daily cable news show. That was Canceled I was doing. Investigative reporting tape segments for different embassy shows And you know. I was guest hosting the today. Show and Figuring out what. I wanted to do in a career where i add. You know both been given incredible opportunities then also know i think it was viewed a little bit as a laughing stock and a failure Just because i had a low rated cable show Although it was critically well received in the very end when frankly we started doing more of this investigative reporting and breaking news reporting that was substantive And less about headline reading which is not what people want in the middle of the day. But was what i came to care about and so i kind of you know i was. I was tackling both an existential challenge at that point. Of what do i do And knock feeling particularly Empowered in where. I was careerwise Though again i acknowledge how fortunate i was in so many ways And i was also coming on the other hand to believe sincerely in that deeper investigative reporting But the the upper limit your question of of what that amounted to was in no well regarded. Occasionally a awards recognized shorter taped segments for for network news and i would You know in addition to sort of doing hosting duties and stuff. Here and there. I would come on today. Dacia say hey matt lauer has a five minute segment but sproule tape couple questions at it. And that was what this was supposed to be a series on. Hollywood pitched and i. It was an ongoing negotiation. Right up to the end. How dark could get with that And never of news particularly morning. Television is understandably not the most natural fit for the very very dark topics To their credit they ran pieces in that series on. You know gender diversity in hollywood Were talked to women. Directors about the problems with the lack of women directors in hollywood There were a handful of pieces that y'all got substantive issues but this piece about the casting couch became something of an albatross because it was darker Because increasingly it became a piece about harvey weinstein And because we each piece of evidence that we gathered the the network became more and more uncomfortable with it which is all now sort of old history although it's been striking Having rich this producer lay all allowed in such a kind of frank way on the show. That there's been this resurgence of reaction to it But but all. I thought at the outset was you know will will earn this on the today. Show around oscar season And it'll be one of several role in this series and that's it but but i do. I do think the moment the harvey evidence starting to come into play. It became apparent that it was going to be bigger than that. This episode.

"ronan" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"Check out his documentary series. Catch and kill the podcast tapes. It's currently streaming on hbo max. It's very strong work. His work has been strong for a long time even though he's only thirty three years old which is amazing to me he essentially and i don't know if he wants to be taking credit for this but his reporting on harvey weinstein helped ignite the me too movement so i am thrilled to ask a bunch of questions of ronan farrow. Because the journalism he's been doing is exceptional and exceptionally hard for a while. Now so ronin. Let me begin with. When did you doubt the most that this story would ever see. The light of day on harvey weinstein. May i remember. There was a period that i describe in the book catch and kill Which is more semi story reporting the story the the podcast tapes just wrapped on hbo and is now streaming as of today on hbo. Max is more sort of stories. it's deep dives into the sometimes really quite epic saga. That are totally separate for the sources lips through an and in that respect i was grateful to build a shift. The focus but to your question about my own doubts that lives in the story that separately told him the book and Although it's touched on a little bit here and there in the tv series on an aching him both wanting that comes across as you know when you get fired for your job Yo when you hear from a bunch of executives at a news network and just executives but friends who've worked with for some time You when you hear them that this is never going to be a story and that people fundamentally will not care about this And not just that. You don't have enough evidence to room story But that you know it's just not that big a deal Which was no oppenheim. The the president of nbc news is contention e you can get to a point where you question. What you fundamentally no would every fiber of your being. Which is you've got a recording of a guy admitting to a sexual assault that the police had suppressed. You've and. I should clarify that. The digital and legal system had suppressed. Because actually the cops want very much for that tape to get out You know we had multiple women on the record All of this is detailed in the in the hbo documentary and understandably. in retrospect. It looks pretty bad that people were racing to to get that out publicly. But when you're inside that and your career is on the line and it's all a cost benefit analysis and Again you have all of these voices in your the executives. I mentioned but also people like you know my agent You know people in the industry A lot of the sources understandably from a place of trauma also saying you know this is just not a story that's ever gonna see the light of day. The odds are too great Absolutely there there. Were times where i had no idea what the outcome was going to be an and found myself thinking what what do i do. I remember My partner john lovett. Who's also shows up in this book. saying to me recently. Do you remember when we were talking about. Like do put it up as a medium post like what is gonna happen to this reporting Because he was actually one of the rare people to his immense credit who never wavered even once you know said from the very very first piece of evidence i got. You know you've got everything online and incredibly important story. How many people like that were there very very few you know. I think there were people within the group of sources who kept me going Because they were holding strong and never wavered in their understanding of how important it was You know there were other sources. As i mentioned who i think were dealing with so much personal trauma That it was much more a process pacek document and in both the book and the podcast and and this show Of trying desperately to convince them to stick with him but there were other sources People like emily nestor. Who's one of the first to go on the record in this particular body of reporting Who really were ten of unwavering. They never withdrew and then there was. There was john on my partner. I mentioned that i'm actually. I'm thinking for the first time. Because i haven't been posed this question before. I honestly don't think there's anyone else who leads to mind. There's my producer. There's an episode of the hbo show which i am really proud of. And i'm glad is out there in the public about my producer at nbc. Rich mchugh And he is someone who actually also never wavered. We were going through the same cost benefit analysis together and He talks about in the show having kids to support and family on the line and nevertheless really feeling this was worth putting his job on the line for and i drew a lot of strength for that and i think the outcome might have been quite different if he hadn't stopped by me because i was very much being to use a slightly overused term right now gasoline. But i think it's the truest definition of that you know to have a group of people. Descend on you and say no. You're judge menaced totally not correct. This is not news This will never be news And he was having none of that you know. He was a more experienced professional in network news than i was and from the very beginning. Said you know this suspicious or shutting down. The story had been at other networks. This is not how it's supposed to work And encouraged me to keep going even when he couldn't because he was you know they're under contract at that network and they killed day. I've heard you interviewed enough to know that you know the journalist is supposed to be the story and the victims here the brave ones. Maybe you don't look at yourself as the same kind of brave and maybe you say. I'm not a victim here. But while i'm watching catch and kill what i felt on your. I can't believe how scared this dude had to be. Just scared when nbc comes down on you career on the line and now the money and the lawyers are pelting you with all manner of threats like of course. Your confidence is gonna get shaken. How could it not. Yeah it did get and it was a hard period mental health wise and You know your way to clock a challenge here which is Really have a worked very hard to keep the focus on the sources Not from any nobility so much as just you know my posture for a very long time in this story was banging my head against the wall trying to get people to pay attention to their stories And i didn't want to distract from that And that was the case for several years. But i did come to realize over time that what you're saying is true And that connects to a separate wider issue of importance which is journalists. Do get threatened all the time in the united states. It's beyond united states sometimes with much higher stakes outside of countries where there legal protections of for the free press and eight felt important to me over time as i lived with the fact that you're alluding to of how scary this was To tell that story and sober way that wasn't overly dramatic or overblown or anything but That god at just what. Investigative journalists confront when they go up against powerful interests. And i as i am alluding to with that reference to countries around the world where journalists face a lot more direct violence Had it much much more fortunate than many but It is a problem. And it's definitely not fun. getting chased around smear efforts and having move out of your place because it's no longer safe place and i'm really grateful for the sources who allowed me to tell that story and being able to document that And prove mentally proved with documents you know held up in court and stuff is all figured in the criminal prosecution of weinstein To be able to prove that your being a chaste and surveilled in that way makes a big difference. And that's only possible because there were Conscientious whistle blowers within that operation and.

"It's one of the parts of this. That i am most grateful to have been able to get out it. It's an incredible thing to witness. The new yorkers backtracking process. And it's the only way. I was able to withstand all threats coming at me and i wish that That regret fact checking were more commonplace in journalism. Because i think it is the best antidote to the kind of skepticism about the media. That's out there and the accusations of fake news Which are infuriating. Because of course journalism is a constitutionally protected profession for reason cornerstone of democracy you have to access to facts tavern informed of body politic. And there's a reason why it's suchitra routine historical currents that fascists and You leaders who are against the rule of law want to consolidate power go hard on journalists And try to weaponize rhetoric that conveys the public that journalists are enemies so it feels like an important moment actually to talk about and demystify what journalists actually do and particularly the corner of journalism that These stories exist in which is one. That's attended with a whole lot of care and caution and you were not perfect. But i i can tell you that. There is a sincere and at times backbreaking effort to really get the facts right and convey them in all of their complication And that's a that's another tribute to the sources in these stories because particularly for this kind of very traumatizing Set of facts. I'm requiring sources to not just disclose those facts but really relive them in the context of a very intense and sometimes adversarial grilling and i'm grateful for all the sources who've come forward and said that that was a healing process for them that that was a good thing for them but Make no mistake about it. You know. I'm i'm in some ways in an adversarial posture in that process. I i share. I think sources Commitment to getting the truth out and believe that that's important and that they're doing something brave But the best way for me to serve them is actually to pick apart their story and identify inconsistencies. And make sure to read or knows about that. you're you're subjecting yourself to scrutiny of your credibility when you come forward with these kinds of serious criminal allegations and that some that's a scary hard thing and you know again. It underscores for me. Just how brave. The characters in the series. The women who helped to out the truth in this case And some end to have people like that. That spy who Had a change of heart Who helps to expose and dismantle a system But it really reminds me of their bravery and all of that works hand in hand with the system that you're talking about where there is a team of editors in fact checkers that are scrubbing and re scrubbing and standing up to legal threats. Partly Because they can really say. We did our due diligence. We really really left nose tone unturned. And we really faring of all of the different sides of this. It really is remarkable. Work documentary series catching. Kill the podcast tapes. You should watch it on. Hbo last question. And we'll get you out of here among you mentioned a spy among the places where you personally felt threatened. Nbc not supporting you letting you go We've chronicled some of the things buried in lawyers threatening you. God knows what kind of ruined and they were threatening you with. And then you know black ops following you around surprised at Detectives where did you feel most threatend. I mean i think it's that it's that sort of interesting where the story just didn't have a home And my career have a home and a there was a you know i try to make the story. Not about me Bud in the context told about before finally understanding that there was some utility. I think for others and telling my story. I i have now knowledged. Those two things came together You know the personal interests And fears about my own future and safety. And then you know the concerns and sincere caring about the fate of the story and what was going to happen to potentially other women who might get hurt. If i didn't get those facts out so all of that kind of converged very complicated way for me And i think i just hit a point honestly where there was no way out but through at a lot of journalist center had that feeling on top stories where you're getting a lot of incoming on it At a certain point you know when you've sort of we've given up the the job and the career path you thought you were going to have and i. You can't really be in your home at that point in time And you don't know whether the work is going to see the day. Yes if i say that. That's hard moment. That was probably the top spot for me. But you know you you in this point earlier. Dan and it's when. I make a lot. But i make it a lot relief. I have a. I was bullied by the fact that i was dealing with. Incredibly brave sources aside from anything else embarrassed to let them down very embarrassing to you know get on the record have that long process. Put them on camera and then say hey so. I'm working on getting out. I promise. I can't tell you where to hell but i'm working on it. Stay with me. Stay with me And you know more seriously than an embarrassment. The contrast was always apparent to me where they were reliving. Something really tough. Some of them it became increasingly apparent. Were also dealing with espionage and intimidation than legal threats. And i couldn't wallow too much in my own situation which was I think you know a smaller spike on the richter scale of pain and trauma relatively speaking grateful for your time. Grateful for your work. Grateful for your empathy grateful in general for what it is that you're doing on behalf of journalism. Thank you for spending this time with us ronin and i so appreciate it as always such a respectful and interesting and thoughtful conversation and a lot of the press. I do around a project like this is very very bite size so It's nice to have a conversation With such evident carrying and with some breathing room. I have a thousand more questions. But i don't want to take up more of your time with free sometimes been pressed. You put up with me twice in a row in as many weeks Thank you sir. Grateful for all you do thank you..

"Also the the quality of just being able to experience what some of these women went through. I do think that change the the dialogue around the case. I think it made it harder for the first time for a prosecutors not to go after him more aggressively in so many instances of the legal system dropping the ball and harvey weinstein evading accountability I think has been so many things. It's a critical mass of factors. You know the the new york times did incredible reporting on the harassment side of things not just need a whole team at the new yorker him brought together this reporting about the rape allegations. is a cultural moment. Unscrew ling That was related to all that reporting but also separate in some ways where i think a lot of women were standing up and saying enough And i think all of that came together in a moment where there had to be more accountability in this case sadly than than there is in so many cases to this day But i do think what. We can only speculate what the universe would be like without that tape. We all owe a debt of gratitude to amber gutierrez Because there's that whole caper of tape. And then there is a whole other saga of her life falling apart and yet her fighting to preserve the evidence. So i was happy. We were able to to do an episode jerry really dive deep on that. The taped conversation does reach you. It is chilling as you said and it is a visceral reaction. You have to it. One of the things. I mean it's there many in it The the aggression the the insistence and the word. He kept used the friendship when they're not actually friends. It felt so manipulative to save friendship. When the undercurrent on that is you wanna maintain your friendship with me. It's how you get the things that you want from the power. They weren't friends in any way. And there's just no way to listen to that and not feel uncomfortable all of it. Yeah it's very very dark And it feels very practiced and his side of that. Conversation is very sinister. I think that end the for the series in particular where you're seeing and hearing things it's much more visceral in some ways you know. I did a lot of thinking about What is the right. Balance of including frank accounts of details because there's power In that kind of honesty And not putting people through the ringer more than they have to be or bludgeoning people with the darkness of this You know the the show actually While it has some dark. And i think for some potentially triggering moments errs on the side of focusing on sources and their bravery rather than on weinstein to even that tape in the way we frame it and i think one of the things that i personally emerged from listening to that tape with is just with an emphasis on the incredible ingenuity of amber gutierez. Because you go into that tape. I think expecting to some extent when you just see on paper what's happening this very very young model of who. He's just groped she. Unbeknownst damn collaborating with the police agrees to a follow up drink She doesn't speak english well at all. She speaks english much better now. But this was some years ago And so she's speaking haltingly. And you go into this conversation as a listener thinking oh well. He's playing her. He has this routine and he thinks he can just steamroller with But what emerges as you listen and understand the full context and and you're my conversation with her along the way is she really is playing him. And it's this very strangely empowering moment to of someone who took risks it was scary but was interested. Insanely brave at did prevail. Yoshi does corner him into a confession And she is in those early moments where he thinks. He's kind of doing his usual. I guess he would call it a seduction routine She's actually running circles around him. You know she's kind of she's playing apart She's leaning into those things that he hunts and She's doing it all very knowingly. So i think things for the series in particular were included Not just ever. Further darkness order shock value. But because they have that element of let's spend some time with a person who we can we can learn a little from frankly Because they are that brave and their story is that empowering and inspiring despite the darkness. I was heartbroken for his assistant. Rana chiel. I think i'm pronouncing her name correctly. I hope i am She was talking about harvey weinstein. Not being the only monster in the room when she was discussing with her lawyers and the other lawyers the nondisclosure agreement. How do we arrive in a place where the lawyers on both sides are trying to get towards settlement. I assumed that's just because it's so hard to prosecute these cases and what you run up against. Which is this story is never going to get published ronin. This is never going to happen. That basically the lawyers are saying. This is the best you're gonna do. I just couldn't believe that the lawyers on her side were arguing on behalf of. Yeah the money will just make this go away. And it made and made me feel like they were just interested in getting their cut as opposed to actually helping her yeah and you know part of investigative reporting his talking to every person on every side of the situation and understanding all the nuances night. I did have contact with that legal team when i first reported Her and zelda perkins's stories You know these. The two assistance in england who took action against weinstein. And it's it's a fascinating episode of the show where you start to see again in keeping with the theme i just mentioned people have rising up and starting to fracture the system. He had built An zelda marina deserve a lot of credit for doing that You know The lawyers on the other side of that equation the people representing them. I would argue as you might expect that day am briefed them all available options and it wasn't that they were railroading them in any way I think the truth is very much in line for between is saying and it's not necessarily down to an individual case of bad lawyering or any kind of technical breach of duties of care here has to their client I think it's a wider problem. Nice as an attorney myself. It's an unimaginative profession..

But i think it's the truest definition of that you know to have a group of people. Descend on you and say no. You're judge menaced totally not correct. This is not news This will never be news And he was having none of that you know. He was a more experienced professional in network news than i was and from the very beginning. Said you know this suspicious or shutting down. The story had been at other networks. This is not how it's supposed to work And encouraged me to keep going even when he couldn't because he was you know they're under contract at that network and they killed day. I've heard you interviewed enough to know that you know the journalist is supposed to be the story and the victims here the brave ones. Maybe you don't look at yourself as the same kind of brave and maybe you say. I'm not a victim here. But while i'm watching catch and kill what i felt on your. I can't believe how scared this dude had to be. Just scared when nbc comes down on you career on the line and now the money and the lawyers are pelting you with all manner of threats like of course. Your confidence is gonna get shaken. How could it not. Yeah it did get and it was a hard period mental health wise and You know your way to clock a challenge here which is Really have a worked very hard to keep the focus on the sources Not from any nobility so much as just you know my posture for a very long time in this story was banging my head against the wall trying to get people to pay attention to their stories And i didn't want to distract from that And that was the case for several years. But i did come to realize over time that what you're saying is true And that connects to a separate wider issue of importance which is journalists. Do get threatened all the time in the united states. It's beyond united states sometimes with much higher stakes outside of countries where are legal protections of for the free press and eight felt important to me over time as i lived with the fact that you're alluding to of how scary this was To tell that story and sober way that wasn't overly dramatic or overblown or anything but That god at just what. Investigative journalists confront when they go up against powerful interests. And i as i am alluding to with that reference to countries around the world where journalists face a lot more direct violence Had it much much more fortunate than many but It is a problem and it's definitely not fun You know getting chased around Smear efforts and having move out of your place because it's no longer safe place and i'm really grateful for the sources who allowed me to tell that story and being able to document that And prove mentally proved with documents you know held up in court and stuff is all figured in the criminal prosecution of weinstein To be able to prove that. Beg your being a chaste and surveilled in that way. makes a big difference. And that's only possible because there were Conscientious whistle blowers within that operation and one of the final episodes of the hbo show is a very strange thing which is sitting down for a conversation and a drink with a guy who staked me out and follow me around ostrovsky And i talk about in in.

"ronan" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

"Ships and guardian ships was fascinating. I grew up in a family with Significantly disabled people You know. I have friends who are significantly disabled. Probably a lot of people in this group on this call listening out there Either know someone who has been in a guardianship of one type or another or has had a loved one that they've had to place in in guardianship and you know it's it's an interesting legal system to explore rape because in many cases it's important and welcome If you have someone who is in a genuine state of incapacity It's important to have a system in which we can allow loved ones to help them either through a hard time temporarily or long-term but then you have a population of people who test the outer limits of this question of to whom that restrictive structure should be applied and britney spears. Is you know. In addition to being a subject of fascination on a personal level which we can get into For for the american public for years and years also a test case for conservatives ships and guardian ships and the ways in which today can be abused so for me this was never you know just a a sizzling entertainment story about pop star or even something i i also think is true of the story. Namely it's a heartbreaking chronicle of a human being in a state of struggle. I think it's also something that's even more significant. Which is it. Reveals a corner of the court system that can be underregulated and yes can lead to useful and helpful outcomes but also can really get badly abused the limits on her freedom. Can you go through some of the details. Because when i'm hearing things like she can't have an iud removed. I can't even begin to understand what world we're living in here. Yeah she is a nearly four year old woman She has over the course of this. Thirteen year conservatorship For at least the early years of it performed and made tens of millions of dollars The administrators of this conservatorship have in many cases profited richly off of this arrangement We talk about how her court appointed lawyer Was making a in the neighborhood of half a million dollars a year off of this situation You know her father and other members of her family who were involved either in maintaining or creating this ship Have also at various points been financially dependent on her And then you have britney spears at the heart of all of this and despite all of that on a very very limited weekly allowance that at times has been just you know a couple of thousand dollars when she was making tens of millions of dollars She has a as you pointed out. Alleged sort of handmaid's tale style limitations on her basic bodily automation and reproductive rights. You know she has said that her lawyer her court appointed lawyer saying emma ingham did not inform her of her ability to file to get out of this situation An through all of this. There's a through line that emerges of her wanting to be a mom and see her and even a lot of the early cases of evident public distress that led to her being placed in this situation were directly after she tried to see her kids in the midst of a custody dispute and was denied access to them so far from the picture that emerged in the tabloids of you know a wacky popstar spinning out Yeah whether you could say that's also true or not. I think there is another dimension to this which is a mother Possibly by the accounts of many people near her In retrospect seem to be struggling with postpartum depression was struggling with the difficult custody. Fight You know may have been depressed. There may have been many other mental health. Diagnoses a play here But you know not Someone who was just over indulging in the way. The tablets made out and who as a result has paid really dear price in terms of her basic freedoms. You do such a great job a deaf job of slaloming through reported facts and also offering the nuance and perspective. That's needed around these things. That has some opinion in it. As well reported a opinion exhaustively back the pinion but in your view. What are the worst ways. She has been wronged well. I think it's telling.

"Nick cardigan. I listened to the diane ream show for many decades and now my son is listening with me to diane ream on my mind makes me think of when i listened to the diane ream show with my mom. It takes a lot of work to produce a podcast on mind. It gets made because of the members of wmu so if you love it then you can support it. You can make sure it keeps getting made and you keep hearing diane on the air make a donation at wmu dot org. Here's the rest of my country's agent with ronan farrow. He's a contributing writer to the new yorker and author of war on peace the end diplomacy and the decline at the american influence. The question becomes now. President biden is in office. Has he taken steps. Small ones even to correct what happened to the state department. So the answer is undoubtedly yes. If the threshold is has he taken steps even small ones and the diplomats i spoke to in there were hundreds of sources in this book. Many of them career state department officials they were in a state of deep disillusionment coming out of the trump administration and they were immensely heartened by the fact that on the campaign trail. Joe biden talked about reprioritising civilian diplomacy. That said i include some of this the edition of the book. It's in a new yorker piece. From last week that i published there are misgivings already six months into administration about whether enough is being done to attend to this problem. But that in fact the case that perhaps you're making the judgment a little early six months in two biden's administration. That is the argument that you obviously get from tony. Blinken camp Tony being the the new sector state and it's the argument you get more widely than the biden administration. I don't think it's unfair. Defense to say wait and see That said i think it is instructive to hear the people on the inside. Saying exactly what they think is still stalling The most interesting argument that emerges in those conversations is that in a zeal to distance themselves from the kind of careening unilateral leadership of trump and his secretaries of state figures who disregarded the input of the building and the wider government You know situations where donald trump would be forging ahead into brokering alliances with some pretty shady figures without ever talking to a single expert in an effort to create distance from that kind of posture. A number of career officials who served across multiple parties told me that they feel the biden administration is being deliberately Slow and consultation on and that while there are advantages to that it has reached a point of excess in several policy areas including for instance in iraq which was raised as an example by several of these individuals. Because it's a little less than spotlight right now but nevertheless has serious life or death consequences depending on what we decided in terms of our our ongoing presence and our strategy and you know the the peace lays out clearly unfairly the responses of the biden administration which includes the argument that you made of. You know it's just too soon. But the fact is six months of policymaking is is a meaningful start and if there are pivotal people on the inside who say these new folks are very nice and their intentions are right But not enough is being done to jump. Start this kind of Diplomatically lead policymaking and not enough is being done to staunch the bleeding in of staffing and resources at the state department. That's another complaint that we actually have not yet seen the headcount of foreign service officers at the state department increase Fair enough to say it's gonna take time to see change. But also i think appropriate for those people on the inside to turn whistleblower and say. Hey let's keep the heat on because these are deep wounds gonna take a long time to fix fully and the work in their view has to start now. It does strike me that he tony blinken has been given such a large portfolio especially in light the cobra virus. You know i. I still come back to the idea. He said dedicated professional. He will do what's necessary. He does need more money he does need more time and in a state department that has been so disheartened and sewed is functional. And so deteriorated. It's going to take quite a while. It would seem to me without a doubt you know. I talked to ten secretaries of state on the record for this book and it was fascinating to get their perspectives But one way in which. Those perspectives tended to align was. It's going to take a long time to heal. You know john carey says in this book a generation before we restore expertise at the state department where it should be because it's not as simple as rehiring. The kind of expertise that you need is a is a decades line pipeline. You need people like tom. Countrymen who starred in that system young and learn and learn and learn about their field within that system. And you know the argument carrying nixes. You're not gonna have the trained career ambassadors that you need in thirty years in forty years after the trump era where there were all these firings So so yes. It is a long term problem and yes tony. Blinken has inherited an incredible challenge That would be daunting. I think for any public servant however dedicated and i think that the you know the scuttle but within the building on on lincoln is positive. People feel Relieved to have someone who is consultative and cares about the building and has been in it before and had a reputation when he was a deputy in prior administrations. I for being a kind good boss. You know. I think all of that is is welcome acknowledged and nevertheless i think the The unenviable position of being in that position and carrying that challenge is there's gonna be effort to to keep the heat on on him and officials around him to throw themselves into this challenge and do the almost impossible in setting the state department. One wonders how much you as dip see is actually trust it abroad. We have made so many enemies. During the trump administration. And now there's a period repair and reclaim the moscow on and it's got to.

Want to serve and considered a number of things and turn turn including The military side of things but had intern for richard holbrooke between college and law school and had this connection with him and actually then ran into hillary. Clinton i tell this story in the book at an inaugural event that i had no business being at a friend had brought me to and hillary clinton and i had gone to the same law school and she was very kind and she You know suggested that. I connect with holbrooke who she knew that i had a relationship with and at that point i believe it was not yet public that he was going to go into that administration But he was behind the scenes building. This role of can i take on this last great you know. I don't think he knew it was going to be his last. But there were some ways in which it did feel a little like a suicide mission to try to fix afghanistan after so many generations had failed not just failed from the american perspective but failed the afghan people we really i think the western powers russia and the united states during the cold war Left afghanistan shall we say worse for the wear. And i fear the result of this more. Recent era has been the same but because of all that i wound up there as a very young person in his very junior role seeing this these historic events and seeing these titans of this in some ways lost ark. Richard holbrooke in his desperate last stand making the case for the institution of diplomacy and he built another plot thread in this book of leaks. Centric colorful team of experts from outside of diplomacy of career diplomats of of technical experts within the government agriculture experts intelligence experts and put together an all star team of people who in some ways were were misfits or not part of the system and the system was a little bit suspicious of us. Said of that office was called the special representative ghanistan in pakistan. And of course everything and government has Acronyms does s rap and we were in these very unglamorous offices on the first floor by the by the cafeteria Which was terrible for. Richard holbrooke health exceed eight terribly and was always stopping at the cafeteria or the bodega next to the cafeteria. But you know we had this incredible coming and going of world leaders and celebrities and experts in and out of those doors. Where were you in. All the i was sitting right there and i moved desks a few times but it was always next to someone fascinating and won't point i. I sat next to Barney rubin whose this story afghanistan expert unacademic Rena murray who. Richard holbrooke mostly in an exaggeration used to say wrote the afghan constitution and she would roll her eyes. You know these are names. That might not mean much people outside of this little narrow ambit of afghanistan but Their significant figures in that field and in shaping the course of american strategy in that region. I got kind of a ground level view into that and saw all of these. Different manifestations diane of the diminishing of the profession as we were undertaking. This challenge another story. I tell them. The book is of this career diplomat. Robin rifle who got accused of espionage for the work that she was doing in pakistan. And it's a fascinating little yarn. She arrives home to find her house. Crawling with fbi agents and they're sifting through all of her documents and trying to find anything they can on her. Did she ever accidentally take home a classified document and they find enough to really thrust her into a crisis for years and turned her life upside down. But it does see. I will spoil how it came out for those who didn't follow the story at the time and i want to read the book but it really does seem that one component of that was the wider government and an increasingly military heavy heavy and intelligence heavy leadership.

Saints ham dived at that point. But not one of the points in the five point consensus has been delivered on since that diane even an even the appointment of an envoy has some good at the chances that joint oh will allow a representative representative of as ian to land in myanmar. Well that would depend on the calculation that the joint aches. We choose whether or not the would be any any downside for them. By rejecting the arrival of anez ian rent the military in myanmar is very good at delaying things. They've they've done this repeatedly of a many decades and they do that to take the political sting out of situations and to take the impetus away from people who might be able to force them to change their direction.

The brake away Super League said it will reconsider how to reshape the project with more his our sports editor, Dan Ronan. And so it appears. The so called European Super League isn't quite so super after all, following a seismic but ultimately shambolic bid to get this breakaway off the ground, one that threatened the entire footballing pyramid, and it will be fascinating to see how long it takes for the damage. The bad blood that this episode has created to be forgotten. It won't be easy. A number of forces were at play here. The threat over players play the national team's clubs be expelled from their leagues. But ultimately, perhaps what proved decisive for once was found power.

"I go backwards and forwards on the first question of wearing and when will you happiest. Because we're so encouraged to be happy all the time rather than the place that we're headed. I don't think that's a well not to be terribly pedantic right out of the gate but you know what is happiness is what you come very quickly and answering this question rided any way and i also found it. Surprisingly hard to answer by any metric that there are a lot of professional moments of fulfillment that came to mind as the answers. Getting a tape of harvey weinstein trying to entrap a woman. After months and months of trying. To get that those are obviously moments of fulfillment of kind. But then i think was a happy then because those high points were also marked by a lot of stress and can also be frankly kind of scary. I mean i think both on a level that any writer would relate to where. You're in the zone crafting a scene but also you're on a terrifying deadline and stressful. And you're afraid you're going to fail. And there's a lot riding on anything particularly when it's investigative reporting and in ways that are unique to my kind of work which is very combative in some ways and you know there are sometimes private. Investigators hired to follow me around and smear me in various ways so those moments of the film and are often entwined with ryan easy. And i don't know of happiness quite captures what those moments our exclusive. No i agree. It is part of the satisfaction of doing an incredibly hard job. That is dangerous and frightening at times but also incredibly necessary and then that paying off. I think there are ways in which that's a healthy happiness. If you were doing something whatever your profession is that you feel is contributing in positive way to other people's lives. That's a great thing to nurturing yourself. On the other hand that can take a lot of unhealthy forms. Yeah i i know and really respect a lot of great war reporters who famously do get high off of being in conflict zones and during time spent in in some of those types of places you encounter a lot of those people who are in it maybe for all the right reasons but also i think you know if they were to search themselves on a personal level. It's probably not the healthiest thing that they need to be in those high octane places all the time so is that happiness or is that kind of getting a certain kind of high again regardless of how noble the intentions

Transforming Infused Biologics into Injectables

"Rene, thanks for joining us. Thank. You Danny a pleasure to be here. We're GONNA talk about how It's enhanced drug delivery technology and how the company has rebuilt its business strategy around this, let's start with enhanced though what is enhance? That's a great question. Enhance is based on the proprietary enzyme recumbent Human Highly Rana Days Ph twenty. There is a human enzyme on human, highly Rhonda's enzyme and on accommodate version of that. I'd be happy to go into a little bit more about how it works if you'd like. What's the normal function of the enzyme in the body? Okay. So a little bit of biology then. So if you think about the Subcu-, if you think about the skin, there are three layers, the epidermis, the Germans, and then subcutaneous stays. The subcutaneous space is primarily composed. Of fact, some structural components like Alaskan in college, and then a sugar call highly Ronin. Hiring Ronan Forms Gel like substance in the subcutaneous as and this is what's important when it comes to enhance that that GEL like substance creates a resistance to injecting omnium into this up you space the typical volumes you can inject are usually wanted to amounts of subcutaneous. And so. What the enzyme does is it is it breaks down the highly Raanan as as you're jetting drug and the Enzyme Co formulated together. If rates out highly on, she can actually deliver large volumes of injections subcutaneous slow. And that's how drug. Works. So, when we think of That are infused into a patient is volume the issue of why those drugs get infused as opposed to inject it exactly most of the biologics are large lions and they can be sixty, nine, hundred miles. It depends on the concentration if a partner if a company wants to coach with smaller injection buying that could be administered subcutaneous -ly they we co formulated with our enzyme and that formulated product is injected. subcutaneous league are typical products. are in the range of five to twenty EML's. which is allow a lot more than the standard one to two that you can deliver without the enzyme. And what is it actually doing wants it's formulated with a biologic. So, it doesn't do anything to the biologic. But when you inject the CO formulated product into the subcutaneous face, the enzyme breaks down the highly are mentioned that the skin it's a sugar that's naturally in the skin. It breaks it down and opens the state think about like opening the secure space that larger volume have be dispersed, and some of the drug can then be absorbed into the. Circulation. So it facilitates fat sub Q. Injection Large on fluids. What does it take to actually formulate a biologic with enhanced? Does it actually? Does it require doing something to bind it to it or is it just a matter of exciting it into the liquid? It's more than mixing. So typically what we do when we work with a partner on their therapeutic, is we I WANNA, make sure that the enzyme is compatible with their drug at there's no effect of the drug on the vice versa. So we test for compatibility. Then we would test for stability making sure that the two men combine the enzyme on the drug are. Stable a long period of time so that the drug can be manufactured I'm sitting on the shelf for a period of time. One says diamond than simply mixing the two together and the amount of enzyme relative to the amount of drug is extremely small the environment in the order of micrograms of material verses, the drugs which are usually in milligrams. So thousand fold differences.

"To all said kept killing his reporting on Harvey Weinstein and so as Ronan Farrow was getting ready to blow the lid on what Harvey Weinstein was up to Andy lack who was the head of N. B. C. which is where Ronan Farrow was at the time I was telling him you know bring me what you have on the story we we can't report yet but keep bringing me what you have and it is believed that ain't a lack or others within his organization we're giving that information to Harvey Weinstein which is what catching kills about in the first place he just didn't know his own employer was doing it to him and so they kept dragging out historian dragging out his story and Ronan Farrow had as his hi merry source a woman named rose McGowan who told a story of being abused by Harvey Weinstein years before it had destroyed her in so originally she didn't want to be Ronan Farrow's guest she don't want to be part of the investigation she don't want to tell her story again because she had told it before and it never amounted to any punishment for Harvey Weinstein and yet she believe that Harvey Weinstein's goons were causing problems for her to try to silence her so her point understandable was I'm not going to come forward about him again because I don't even believe the story will ever run and Ronan Farrow assured her it will run well after she went through all of that very painful experience Ronan Farrow was not able to live up to his part of the deal because NBC wouldn't air the episode it later emerged that Andy lack in his team where according to Ronan Farrow killing the story but keeping it in house so Ronan Farrow took it to The New Yorker where it eventually was published and set off a chain of events that exposed what Harvey Weinstein had been doing all those years one of the people who worked at NBC during that time is Emily Miller and she will be our guest in the next hour to tell her story of what happened you don't it makes you wonder how we would fare during say World War two with today's society a society that is more worried with political correctness the results the San Antonio city council wants residents to call police on people who use the term Chinese virus or come flew a member of the San Antonio city council says hate speech is more dangerous than the virus itself well I tell you what if that is the case how about this we will inject you with the virus and I'll stand over to the side and say come flew Chinese virus comes Lou Chinese virus can you tell me which one kills you faster this is supposed to be the party of science they don't just want to police your behavior now they want to regulate your speech enter neighbor on neighbor what Castro did to take control in Cuba to maintain control in Cuba he created precinct captains and everyone would come to them Intel who among the group who among the group were not being as loyal as they needed to be or well created a situation where you would have to come together and it was the two minutes of rage and whoever the nation's enemy was she an hour Eurasia or whoever was you would rage against them everybody was screaming at the top of their lungs and they were mad at our mortal enemies and that might change soon your country's enemies might change and you aren't supposed to question why we had our previous allies when our enemies you would rage against them and no one would look left or right during the two minutes of rage because if you did someone might catch your eye in they might recognize that you weren't raging the way you were supposed to in that can't be allowed to happen we're all in this together and so that's what this snitching does that's what the snitch hotlines in Houston they set up us with the snapshot one ten thousand Harris County sorry ten thousand calls to the Harris County fire marshal's office accusing businesses of operating in violation of the lockdown unbelievable so here's San Antone what was becoming a great American city what has long been a great American city it was becoming a business headquarters for telecom for aviation for hospitality and now it's gone completely left whacked out KSAT TV reports that the San Antonio city council has passed a new resolution that states quote the use of terms like Chinese virus or come through virus or kung fu encourage hate crimes and incidents against Asians as well as spreading misinformation liberal councilmember many Polias speaking on the resolution said that hate speech is more dangerous then the virus itself wow reporter hi Arbela said the resolution contains language that says all persons are encouraged to report the use of hate speech to authorities so first you outlaw hate speech and then you define whatever your opponents say.

"Have you seen has been rerouted from the notorious rikers island jail to a hospital. Just hours after the disgraced movie. Mogul was found guilty to sex crimes. He is facing as many as twenty nine years in prison. Erica Hill is out front. Harvey Weinstein wants one of the most powerful men in Hollywood now. A convicted rapist. Weinstein with his manipulation is resources. His attorneys publicists and his spies did everything. He could to silence survivors but they refuse to be silent. They spoke from their hearts and they were heard. At least one hundred women have now publicly accused Weinstein of actions ranging from unwanted sexual advances to rape he has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. Six of those women testified at his New York trial over the past month on Monday. A Manhattan jury found Weinstein guilty on two counts committing a criminal sex act and third degree rape charges based on testimony from Miriam Haley and Jessica Man Hayley told the Cord Weinstein forced her into a sex act in two thousand six while man testified. He raped her in twenty thirteen during an abusive relationship. This 67-year-old was acquitted. On more serious charges of predatory sexual assault against both women and first degree rape against man immediately taken into custody. Weinstein faces five to twenty five years in prison for the criminal. Sex Act charge at a maximum of four years for the rape charge. Ashley Judd. Who accused Weinstein of sexual harassment?

Top 10 Performers of the 2010s

"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

Author Seth Berkman on 'A Team of Their Own: How an International Sisterhood Made Olympic History'

"We have another amazing righteous yet. His name is Seth Berkman. He is journalist by second journalists. We've had on the show but I'm a little bit of a twist. He has been the contributor at the New York Times nine since plenty of twelve he's also been published Yorker. ESPN other national outlets and this focus is actually on sports with an emphasis in perception the Asian athletes and we are catching him at this next exciting phase of his career. He is an author now. He published a book called a team of their own. How in the International Sisterhood Olympic history about the Korean women's hockey team in the two thousand Eighteen Olympics? That sounds like yes. Yes yes so. Thank you again for coming through. I guess we'll just go right into both. I mean so for for those the for those of YOU OUGHTA be watching. I don't know when and how this is how to book. Looks like a desk. The author right there on you know what I mean. Eight represent and Korea Korea. You know saying team of own available in all major bookstores available. Now so let's talk about this go. Who on the surface kind of book about sports and like players and identity? But you also talk about how this book really explores gender under an immigration in communication and that how do basically three identities of South Koreans like North Americans who you have a Korean heritage DOPP DIS as you call them imports and also towards a few weeks. Before the Olympic stars they find out they have to play with North Korean Ain't players so basically pulled from the diaspora and just kind of the hockey team. Right is that what happened. Essentially it's like a peeping pop pop of hockey players. They just kind of Joe hit. Go ahead you thank God. Damn tell us about your book in the very concise Nice way just for our listeners who are encountering it for the first time short and so it makes me think I once heard a long time ago. When you're writing a book someone told me that you should be able to explain it? One sentence I haven't been able to do that only because there's so many layers but to give you kind of just a simple breakdown to me. What the essence of this book is eventually? It's a search for identity a search for belonging that I think anybody can really relate to and what really sticks out to me. Is this give and take take that developed over time. So you had like you mentioned players from Korean-americans Korean-canadians North Koreans and South Koreans all forced on this one one team together over time though you saw this give and take develop between the sides for example. The Korean American Crean Canadian players like you said that imports they they never attached much their identity. They never felt Korean growing up. It was just language. Some of them grew up in rural North Carolina. So there were yeah no real strong connections or cultural aspects. They're going to Korea. Living in South Korea among young women obviously obviously changed that started develops stronger feelings towards Korea than on the other hand when you have the South Korean nationals. These half the team were teenagers. Fourteen fifteen eighteen sixteen year old girls on their growing up in Korea. And they're at that age where they're questioning everything they're having these thoughts emotions for example. Some players battled all depression but they never spoke about that openly just because in Korea it so taboo. Depression is still very new. Run around and there were even some players who had questions about sexuality their owns actuality. They just couldn't talk to their friends at school. Their people they knew increase about this but when the imports it's came over it became like an open book. You know they basically had these. QNA sessions where anything they wanted to ask about emotions or sexuality the imports. I would tell them. Oh it's okay that you can have these feelings. And so like I said you had this give and take between the exchange and I think that's what the book starts to really bring out is just how the sense of belonging grew from these two from opposite ends of the world basically coming together and forming this team. This little family that they did and going back to what Jackie said about. This is like a situation. You had a really crazy breakdown of how this team got recruited rooted because you know career finds out. Yeah we got the bid for the Winter Olympics. Oh we don't have a hockey program. So can you tell us then. Refresh the people who haven't read the book of how they went about recruiting in how unconventional it was so two thousand eleven. South Korea gets the bid to host the Winter Olympics in two thousand eighteen. So they celebrate immediately but then it dawns on them. Oh Shit we have to create a hockey team. Olympics hockey is a centerpiece sport of the Winter Games. No one in South Korea. They'll really plays hockey at all. So what they did. Was Korea Ice Hockey Association of a man who works in the public relations relations department. Basically he went on Google and googled women's Hockey College Women's hockey teams in the. US and Canada pulled up the rosters and looked at but names that sounded Korean or if they had pictures took note of players. Look Korean when I interview early on even said the first few players he found. Were actually Chinese. These there was like a Yang and a Wu and he never heard back from them but he is a cree. How can anyone who looked? Possibly Korean sounded like later Korean rename reasons. How like an excel sheet of a name? Exactly eventually he stumbled on a few that responded to them but at first when they were contacted they thought they were being spammed. Damned pranked emails. Broken English Green Symbols Ronan was like something at dot com got even like an official government in my email account and so the first person that kind of bit you know took the bait was She actually had an uncle lived in South Korea and so he when in an e content to Kia loughry ice hockey association. Verify you for sure Kia C.. Kriss oil great pat branding confine your and they reach out to him and he was like. Yeah we're interested in bringing your daughter over here to represent South Korean the Olympics and that's how these korean-canadian free in America players kind of latched onto the team. Yeah well it's interesting that they think bank just like you looking Korean is what makes you Korean route. You know if they're looking at Asian faces. I'm sure some of them were adopted so they don't have green last name name so they were making like these assumptions. That's like really interesting of how that was something that was important to them that they were just Korean. But even if on the inside they may have never encountered the right and then but I think maybe for this government official who had to put this together his or her door process was probably early like you know as an easier way for me to possibly convince them yeah to kind of like take citizenship or you know like maybe they are or dual citizens so it was kind of an easier

Race Still to Close to Call in Iowa

"Been nearly a full all day since the start of the Iowa caucuses and we still don't know who won partial results show former south. Bend Indiana Mayor Pete. Buddha judge is leading with about twenty seven percent of the state's delegates followed closely by Vermont. Senator Bernie Sanders with twenty five percent and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren trailing with eighteen. MM Percent Party. Officials said the delay was due to a bug in the APP that was being used to report the caucus results last night. Prompting officials to tally up the results manually Democratic Party chair troy price addressed the delay late Tuesday. Now the fact is is that as we started doing this Last night it took longer longer than we expected and so but the my paramount concern is making sure that these results are accurate and reflect what happened last night. In Caucuses across the state. We're going to do just that. And that's we're GONNA take the time we need to joining me now from Washington with more details on just what happened and how it's going to affect the rest of the twenty twenty race and his Wall Street Journal reporter Chad Day Chad. The candidates are already focused on New Hampshire which holds holds. Its primary next Tuesday. How has the delay in results from Iowa impacted their momentum? I think what it's done is it's basically allowed. It's actually given in a big boost to candidates who maybe didn't perform that well in Iowa. It's allowed them to be able to have an entire night where each one of the candidates are able to go out and have a victory speech. And then say we're going on a New Hampshire without. They're actually having been results. Come out and so you know in terms of momentum it actually is robbed You know the winner of the of the caucus from having that spotlight and and you know really what. The Iowa caucuses always kind of serve as is a way for people to kind of pick up momentum going into the next states. And maybe that's not going to happen as much here because every single one of the top candidates was able to say. We're on New Hampshire sewing new last night that these votes are going to be delayed. What is the latest Info you can tell us about the cause because of the delay in results? What more have we found out about the APP use to report the results in what went wrong last night right? So what we're finding out dribs and drabs are coming out out now and I think we still don't know everything that's happened But what what happened was that they were rolled out this APP to be able to tabulate the results and they were trying to do this so that it would be a lot faster to get the results out. Obviously that didn't go the way that they wanted to instead There were problems on one end where people were not properly trained with. The APP didn't know how to use it and then on the other end it's that win. Vote tabulations were being put into the APP. They were actually collecting that information correctly but they were not reporting out correctly. And so whenever I W- Officials noticed that and and saw that problem. They basically had to revert to the backup system and start going through a you know reviewing each one of the paper trail of each one of the caucuses and so that is obviously taken a lot of time and resulted in there being almost a twenty four hour longer delay in seeing any kind of results and how about the logistics of what's been happening overnight tonight and for much of today confirming vote and checking the accuracy. How did that work well? So what they're doing is they're making sure that there that the vote tallies that are actually in the computer system matchup. What's up with the paper trail that they had at the different caucases seven more than seventeen hundred caucus sites across Iowa? And you know one thing that kind of has gotten missed in this is that yes you know. We didn't see results last night. There were expectations that they were gonNA come out. There was a problem with this APP. However you know th the backup system that was in place Appears to be working you you know. They didn't release any results. That were Ronan instead. It appears that the party is trying to make sure that you know they're getting it right and so I would urge you know a little bit of caution in is we're looking at this as you know it was kind of a disaster. An embarrassment for the party. Yes it was. It's not what they expected to have happened. But in terms of actual votes being manipulated or actual votes. What's going out to the public That were Aronie issue. No that did not happen and importantly the party. The Democratic Party in Iowa has confirmed that there was no security breach or anything like that you know. I think what we can say is that the party has said that they have not seen signs. There was any kind of security breach. Hack it's very difficult to make that determination I would. I'd say what it does appear in. What they have pointed out is that there was a bug in the software for the APP that resulted in problems? And so You know I think what's going to kind looking forward. There's going to be a lot of questions about. WAS THIS APP properly. Tested that have enough review from people who are qualified security researchers or people who do this for a living thing you know and so those are all of the questions that were kind of digging into right now is how did this happen and You know how can you prevent from happening in the future. Yeah certainly a lot. The questions coming out of this and what happened last night is also raising questions about Iowa's role in kicking off the nation's nominating contests and fair to say questions about faith faith in the system. I think that's right. I think you know when voters see this where they see you know irregularities and problems you know that that's going to undermine their faith and so already you have a Democratic Party right now where a large part of it is very suspect of establishment candidates. Very suspect of the DNC and you have a lot of supporters of Bernie Bernie Sanders some of Elizabeth Warren. As well who say that you know this is a Democratic Party needs to be shaken up. And I think that this further you know reinforces some of the our thoughts that You know their suspicion with the voting system. There's suspicion with the Democratic Party and the process. And you know anytime that you have something like this whether it is eh appears so you know right now to be a situation where it's either incompetence or You know mistakes were made and not something where there's a grand conspiracy see. It is going to undermine people's faith in it and that's where in the in the vacuum of information that we've had over the last little while that's why you've seen that kind of bubble up on social media and looking ahead Nevada has now said it will not use the APP that was used last night in Iowa for its caucus which are coming up later this month. Yeah that's right and I think that they basically didn't want to be Iowa you know they saw what happened last night and said you know maybe we should go back to the system that we've used before I also also think that what you'll see from states going forward is that ahead of Iowa's caucuses. They were talking about you. Know setting expectations very high saying that results. We're GONNA come out very quickly quickly saying that. They had instituted all of these kinds of you know a new APP and things like that And that set people up to be expecting things to come out last night. I think you might see other other states. Say you know we're GonNa take our time and you'RE GONNA get results after we verified them And try to set a little lower bar that way people are not you know basically writing on very very high expectations and then very disappointed whenever they don't see results almost immediately president trump of course did criticize the process calling what happened a quote unmitigated Disaster Democrats have also faced calls for greater transparency. Where does this leave us? You know it's really hard to tell because of the way the news cycle goes right now. Everything is so fast paced. And I I think you know one of the things that The candidates hurt the candidates because they kind of missed their window here. We're now going to have a state of the Union we're GonNa have pretty much assured acquittal in the trial and so you know and then all the candidates are looking at New Hampshire and so you know the news cycle is already kind of moving on and so you know whether or not this will have some kind of lasting impact. I'm Allenby something that turns into talking point that Republicans see that they can use it against Democrats or you know whether or not Democrats will look at this and say you know. This was a warning shot. We really need to get things in order in terms of our infrastructure around different caucuses. And maybe we need to rethink Iowa. I think that time will tell right now. It seems very fresh but just given the way that the news news cycle goes You know we'll see if we're talking about this in three weeks and we of course here at the Wall Street Journal. We'll continue to follow that Wall Street Journal reporter Chad Day joining me from Washington. Thank you so much for having me

The Revenge of the 47 Ronin - January 30, 1703

"It's almost better than sports. The stay in history class is production of Heart Radio Harvey One. I'm eve and welcome to this day in history class. A podcast where we dust off a a little piece of history and place. It ever so gently on your shelf every day. Today is January thirtieth twenty twenty. The day was January thirtieth seventeen three a group of forty six Ronin in order Samurai without a master avenge the death of their deceased master by killing kit a Yoshinaga. Though the event occurred on January thirtieth based based on the Western calendar Japan used a lunar calendar at the time according to contemporary dating the event took place in Gin Roku fifteen on the fourteenth day of the twelfth month. This difference in calendars has caused some confusion. Over the date of the event that said the Japanese temple where the Ronin were buried holds a festival commemorating the event every year on December fourteenth during the Tokugawa period which lasted from sixteen. o three to eighteen sixty fifty seven Japan was under the rule of the shogunate or a military government. The shogun or chief military commander ruled in the name of the emperor. Aw Daimyo or feudal lords were vassals of the Shogun though they were limited from gaining too much independent Power Samurai no longer had to engage engage in battle since Japan was at peace but each Daimyo did hire army of Samurai to protect their families and property in Samurai still had Coz Ziff honor and conduct known as Bushido that they abided by Ronin often became masterless because they didn't fulfil their duties because they were defeated in battle or because because they're master fell from power or die if a summarize master died or was deposed the Samurai could choose to serve the new Daimyo but if his master was defeated or killed in battle or if he did not want to transfer his allegiance. The Samurai may choose to die by suicide. Those who chose to live as Ronin often did so in disgrace the story of the forty seven Ronin. One of the most well-known Japanese history began when emperor he got she yama stint imperial envoys from Kyoto to the shoguns court at Eto or present day Tokyo. A high official named Kiyoshi NOCCO was in charge as master master of ceremonies for the visit US Nagano. A daimyo from echo was one of the daimyo assigned to receive the invoice kid s about training meaning him and another Daimyo in court etiquette but kit a allegedly treated poorly possibly because of inexperience or because the presence awesome offered. Weren't good enough either way us. No attacked Kita wasn't hurt badly but awesome knows action was considered a huge huge offence. Arsenault was ordered to die by Seppuku. or a form of ritual suicide by disembowelment after awesome knows death. forty-seven his Samurai right led by OAC Yoshiko toes to become Ronin and seek revenge by killing Kita. They started gathering information on kid has house and they split up taking jobs as laborers in merchants to throw Canada and other shogunate officials off their trail. Oishi began to drink alcohol heavily and frequent Geisha the houses to alleviate suspicions and his agents began to think that the Ronin were harmless but on the night of January thirtieth seventeen o three the forty forty. Seven Ronin Matenaer. Eto One of the Ronin Ten Asaka Ki Ay Mon was sent to a code to announce that the rate on Cuba's mansion was happening. Other accounts of the incident. Say that he left after the battle but on this snowy night the Ronan told kids neighbors of their plans to attack his mansion and and they went forward with their plan after killing and wounding many of Canada's Samurai they found Kira hiding and beheaded him all the Ronin survived the attack back which lasted into the predawn hours of the next morning. They then took it as head to Austin as grave at the Sangha cousy temple and the story of their revenge and spread. The ronin were praised by many for their loyalty and for killing Kibbe. They had avenged the death of their master but their actions were still still illegal. Instead of ordering them executed the Shogun allowed them to commit.

Jury selection begins in Harvey Weinstein trial

"Jury selection and Harvey Weinstein's criminal trial is underway in New York City Deep with opening statements scheduled for next week the pressure is on to assemble a panel of twelve jurors and about half a dozen or so alternates. The process this has been far from simple the wraps media and politics reporter. Jay Clara Chan has been following the case from the courtroom in downtown Manhattan and she joins joins us now from a courtroom hallway. Welcome to the show anything sadly so a headline grabber. From the case as week was that the Supermodel gee-gee had deed was dismissed. Let's talk about the bigger issues. What do we know about the jury pool size and how the selection process is going? Sure so did actually had sort of a accused stage jury selection process for last week that was essentially what we're calling a pre screening. Prospective jurors given a questionnaire already fill out and then based on their responses on that train drivers psych decide. You know we want to strike this person or not And then starting to gate which was more more exciting About one forty perspective jurors came into the courtroom and so there was a live who questioning period between the attorneys and from on that right after this morning session that just wrapped up. It looks like by jurors have been selected already so one of the things that lawyers for Harvey Weinstein have been arguing. Is that people's history of sexual assault or knowing somebody who is a victim or survivor of sexual assault should disqualify qualify them from serving on the jury. How is that issue been debated in the courtroom one of the sort of bigger misperceptions even for high profile case? It's like this is even the idea of knowing about one or having heard of the accusations about him. That doesn't actually necessarily immediately disqualify someone for the attorneys. It's more picking apart. How does that information potentially impact would that information potentially impact then or give them a by sees When considering the evidence that will be presented before them and then obviously one actually or for that is if perspective juror has experienced sexual assault or I know someone who has experienced sexual assault? I mean that is something that could very much influence how they view a case and for the most part what. We've been seeing so hard hard for jurors who way that has been the case They've sort of stood up and said you know. I don't think I can be fair impartial. And sort of already indicated a kid that they they shouldn't be selected. So that's something we've been seeing there. As potential jurors are being interviewed as part of this process. How much is coming out about? How much they they know about Harvey Weinstein and what he has been accused of trying to varying degree but I think large number of prospective jurors who've come in and have indicated that they're familiar with either him mother person refer somewhat about his case? Obviously there is the greedy shins. And there's some in perspective jurors that say you know. I actually read William Fair books so I feel like I'm bit too familiar with this case therefore I can't be impartial fair And other people might be saying you know I. I've heard about him but I think I can put that aside. And just consider what's being presented as evidence etc testimony Cetera if I were to be selected for jury Ronan Farrow is the author of catch and kill any wrote about Harvey Weinstein in the New Yorker. It sounds like one juror already. Freddie has been held in potential contempt of court over tweeting about the case. What does the judge said about the way the jurors I guess lawyer should be behaving in terms of what they're saying outside of court? Yes that actually happened just this morning. They had called back in. A inspector would sending some tweets that he shouldn't have been And so he's going to have to come back in March after the trial should be all that got to essentially make his case why he shouldn't be held in contempt. I mean I I think even on the first day though when it comes to public comments about the trial or how people should be talking about it You know the judge told the defense you know don't Discouraging towards the witnesses. Don't talk about then if you're giving interviews You know to the jurors. Don't don't talk about the case if you're still perspective or don't talk about this case with family or friends don't text Oh tweet about it etcetera and then also for journalists we have to very careful about You know talking hallways and things. He's like that. We need to make sure that we do not in any way interact with jurors in a way that could put anything like that. We're talking with Jay. Claire Chan from the rap about jury selection in the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York. She's joining us from New York City courtroom hallway. Weinstein's defense team has requested a change in venue. which which I believe the judge has denied what is their argument in terms of why the jury pool in Manhattan may not be impartial to Harvey Weinstein? I think I think it goes back to again. The idea of you know this is a very high profile case And getting that one you know was a prominent person in New York. They're comparing to that. You know it's almost impossible to avoid news of Weinstein here in Manhattan And then also in recent motions they requested then you change multiple times but more recent motions. These awful pointed to a couple of protests that have happened on some of the days of the trial as more examples of you know clearly clearly. This is something that people are talking about. It's unavoidable etcetera things like that but you know the judge has denied their requests in his reasoning. Sort of been when you know because this is a national or international story. There is no place you could go where people would not be likely to have heard him. Sometimes in questions lawyers as potential jurors sometimes emotions they file with the court. You get a glimpse of potential prosecution and defense strategies. He's as any that. Come out so far through jury selection about how this case might be tried to the trial really hinges on the accounts of two women who've come report to accuse teen. Obviously the defense will be very focused on rigorous craft damnation to go cold in these women's stories or to somehow demonstrate teacher that the relationships were consensual or that the alleged victim you know maintaining relationships with Weinstein and the prosecution on the other hand will be demonstrating a pattern of behavior that once you may or may not have engaged in And really focusing on using the the two minutes testimonies along with his to bolster day cases essentially. We're talking to on Thursday Monday. As a holiday. A hundreds of potential jurors are being interviewed. Is it really likely there will be a jury impaneled by the end of next week and that we actually might hear opening statements by unexploited. Actually I do think so. I think we are actually Schedule I'm the December tourneys. We talked to them. I WANNA say yesterday or day before and they were also pretty confident that we would be schedule mean with he this morning session just wrapped up already. Fighters have been selected. So there's still a couple more days if you do this and I. I do think by next Wednesday over here. Opening statements. J. Clara San is a media and politics reporter for the rap. She's covering the Harvey Weinstein trial in New York work and she joined us from a hallway outside the courtroom Clara. Thanks so much for coming on the show

"And then you began end to hear about these allegations. Well what you do is is as you get to know people and talk to them more than once you become more intimate intimate with them and they feel they relax a little bit and then you say what am I missing. Who else should I talk to or I hear that Harvey boasts? It's about the women actress Z.. Sleeps with tell me about that and as you get to know people they feel comfortable enough to share air some secrets with you. Have you heard about this woman that woman and then someone says well you know Steve penske suddenly disappeared from month to go to Ludin Os obvious lawyer in Miramax. You just try to put the pieces together like a detective. Would the two women I. I came closest to exposing Harvey's behavior towards Zelda Perkins who's assistant is assistant in London and Ruina to ruin a chew the former assistant says that in nineteen ninety eight at the Venice Film Festival. Weinstein assaulted her her in his hotel room shortly after she and her boss Celta Perkins Left. Miramax I talked to ruin for an earlier episode of this show but in two thousand and two you Ken was. I hearing whispers of this incident. Even people in the company didn't know what had happened. No one was talking and I even tracked down Zelda. WHO's living Guatemala?
