But yeah, I'm with you. And I also think as much as Trump was horrible, he brought a lot of people together that, I mean, I hope that what we've started doing is going to really build I've been really encouraged with how, you know, political politically kind of the conversation can be on my stupid channel that just based on the people in politics that follow. Nancy Pelosi and Chelsea Clinton and all kinds of, you know, we've got Raphael Warnock and Jon ossoff. They follow the stupid account. I woke up yesterday and Keisha Lance bottoms as follows.

"Research projects which we were being studied by. I did with michael keaton and york. I was quite uncomfortable. Because i had found out earlier that he had been listening to previous old videotapes of appearances i had made so. He arrived for our first meaning. He had my voice down and he looked at me at one point. He said you know you really don't have that much of a boston accent. I said well how would you know. He said well believe me. I know your voice. It was it was a little disconcerting on london tabloid noted rachel mcadams dresses down for role as investigative journalist citing her messy tresses. Clunky loafers baggy clothes. She looked so much like me in this one scene where she was photograph and then the next day when the press basically eviscerated her outfit. It was hilarious because she got me so right but clearly my outfits are not what people expect celebrities to be wearing. Rachel mcadams said about you. You're one of those people that everyone wants to talk to that. You're an extraordinary listener. You're compassionate and that part of your role on the team was to draw out the stories of the victims. We have a little clip. So he said you know it'll help is if we play tra poco 'cause lost and things from there can you tell me specifically what happened specifically. He molested me. I think the language is going to be so important here. We can't sanitize this to sang. Molest isn't enough. People need to know what actually happened. We should probably get these to go right that clip i think is a reminder for all of us that at the root of the story was terrible tragedy in which many people usually boys when they were. Adolescence had a really traumatic thing. Happened to them. That many of them never recovered from and we needed details. That were sometimes uncomfortable for people to tell us. And because i was the only woman on the team. I believe that it was often easier for men to tell me what had happened. They were talking about things that they were embarrassed about. Ashamed about on almost any story brooke. Sasha could talk that dog off the beat way and and there was one story actually involving a priest who was in charge of young teenage girls who were studying to become nuns and he introduced to sex by persuading them that he was jesus christ on earth and sasha picked up the phone reached this priest and for forty five minutes she talked to this priest and he acknowledged it all he went on and on because sasha kept asking the right questions in the right way. If i had called him up he probably would have hung up in my ear. What's the timing of this story. Crucial to its impact. I know that this was one of the earliest stories to go viral on the internet. But was there also something to do with a changing view. Perhaps in boston towards the institution of the catholic church you know even though the movie makes clear that we probably could have done the story years earlier. If we'd really put our minds to it. If we had done it earlier the stories would not have gone on the web and because it did go on the web are stories work. Just read in the boston area. They read all over the country that meant tip calls came pouring in in. that helped our reporting but brooke. You're right. I think the deference that the catholic church got particularly in a city like boston was really beginning to erode by the time we did our stories. And you know this is a beloved powerful institution and many people just didn't question its authority for many decades and this has taught us why it's important to ask tough questions of institutions like the church. Because this is this is how tragedies like this happen when you don't. There's an amazing scene at the end. When you decide that you're gonna go into the spotlight office on the weekend because you've left a phone number tip line in case anybody wants to call you and it was almost two cinematic to be true. The phone is just ringing off the hook. It was absolutely true absolutely true just like that. It was men usually men calling from all around the country and so many of these men thought for decades that they were the only person that had been abused and suddenly they find out that there had been dozens of other people hundreds of other people and they began calling us and many of them had never told anyone in their family. What had happened to them. I still remember an eighty seven year. Old man from millinocket maine. Who called to tell me about the abuse. He had suffered five years earlier. And i was the first one he had ever told about it. I think it was actually you robbie that often said it was as if we were grief counselors who hadn't been trained to be grief counselors. We spent a lot of time on the phone with men in tears. And i think that was very disturbing but ultimately very angering and anger can be a motivator and i think in our case it motivated us to work even harder on the story. It's unimaginable whether you're catholic unawed naught that had institution like this could countenance enable and cover up thousands of cases of children having their lives shattered by this kind of amos behavior and yet it happened everywhere for so long. It changed our concept of what we should report. After that we consciously looked for stories that involve victimized populations stories where people were getting run over by society and they had no one but us to tell their story. What does it feel like to have this all coming back in this way. Thirteen years later. I think we're still processing that recently. Some more clergy sex abuse lawsuits have been filed in the boston area. And i think that as word of the movie spreads some people are coming forward for the first time those of us who believe in the power of the printed word are a little gobsmacked at the moment. because we're now beginning to think that this film as the potential to really raise public consciousness on important issues of journalism and treatment of children. That aren't possible to do with the printed word and you know we certainly hope it keeps the church working hard to try to make sure this doesn't happen again. We also hope that it reminds people how important investigative journalism is. You have to support this work that means buying your newspaper. Get a digital subscription..

"Of all things considered and radio. Boston at wvu are by way of introduction. This week's podcast is the interview. I did with sasha and her boston globe colleague walter robinson who goes by the name robbie back in october. Two thousand fifteen spotlight. The movie had just come out starring. Michael keaton is robbie and rachel mcadams is sasha. The film sets the scene in two thousand one. When a new editor arrives at the globe marty baron played by leeann schreiber meets with robbie at a restaurant to he asks how the spotlight team operates. Well we are a four person investigative team and we keep our work confidential. We were now we just put out a piece on a shoddy construction outfit and right now. We're really just troy around for our next story. How long does that typically take. Hide to say a couple of months couple months. Yeah we all like russia. Once we settle on a project we spend a year more investigating. It is that a concern not necessarily But from what. I understand readership is down. Internet is cutting into the classified business. And i think. I'm going to take a hard look at things a couple of years on a story. It seems like such a luxury to even contemplate today. Well in fact today many newspapers spend no time on investigative reporting. And that's that's a tragedy for people who depend upon newspapers to call important institutions accountable. Spotlight is still going on at the globe. Bright spotlight is still going on. They just produced very good long story about massachusetts general hospital where doctors very often performed two surgeries at the same time on patients without by the way telling the patients and that project took almost a year and yet as recently as this week there's been a whole other round of cuts a globe that's correct globe went from about three hundred fifty employees down to about three hundred and fifteen. Although relative to other similar size papers the globe staff is still fifty percent or more larger and brooke. Not only is the spotlight team. Actually still alive and well. It's larger than it was when we were on it about a decade ago. It's now six reporters and added sort of a companion swat team. They don't call it that but it allows investigative reporters to team up with beat reporters so they can turn around good investigative stories faster so the globe is still doing a lot of investigative journalism as it did even while marty was cutting way back then and interestingly he's the man who launched the investigation you know he came from. Miami and florida has the best public records law in the country and he came to massachusetts which has among the worst government is not accessible at all. We consider ourselves to be the mississippi of public records. So marty arrives and the very first story. He reads before he comes to work as a column by eileen mcnamara about one priest joined geoghegan who is facing eighty four lawsuits and the column notes that the records provided by the archdiocese to the plaintiff's attorney are under seal and she further wrote the truth may never be known and to marty baron. That is a red flag and marty was such an example of what a pair of fresh eyes can do because many of us over the years had reported on various clergy sex abuse cases and most people never questioned whether we should wonder why they're sealed. We just accepted that they were sealed. Mardi came in and said have we tried to get the seal lifted off these documents and sort of an embarrassed answer. No and he said us out to try to do that. The church unlike nonprofits and public companies and government agencies. They don't have to give us records. You can't send them a public record requests. They don't have to file tax returns so as a reporter. It's a real challenge to think. How do you get that story. When they don't have to and don't want to tell you anything and the first thing you did was to go back to people with whom the globe had dealt before but kind of discounted as being fanatical or difficult to deal with that sort of thing in fact. There's a seminal moment in the film and it was a seminal moment in our investigation when we had in an abuse victim who was the leader of the local chapter of the survivors network of those abused by priests and he came in with a box of documents and among the very first things he said to us. Is you know. I gave you guys this stuff. Five years ago. Talk to richard sipe. He worked in one of the churches treatment. Centers the next priest here. This is his testimony from the cost case. What did treatment center. It's where they send priest when they get caught. This is all right here in the box. I sent this all you guys five years ago to the globe. Who did you send it to. I don't want to say but they said that they weren't interested by phil we. We did run a couple stories on you. Saw them in a quick but to be completely frank. It wasn't enough. You guys got understand. This is big. This is not just boston this whole country. It's a whole world one thing that always happens. Particularly the daily newspapers is people are constantly calling wanting to tell you stories and very often they are people who are saying. There's a conspiracy here. You have to uncover it and nine times out of ten. These are people who are perhaps off their meds but the fact of the matter is there are people who sound like. They're a little troubled because they are victims of conspiracy and we miss those stories and that happened. In this case in fact there are hints of that all through the film robbie echoes of the globe having had handle rising hints. That it didn't follow up on. One of the crucial ones in the film is an allegation of twenty abusive priests that ended up buried in the metro. Section and there is a quick effort to think about. How did it end up being buried. Why wasn't it followed up on. And you're the guy in charge of metro and the story came from a lawyer who is letting us know that there were twenty priests who he said had abused children whom he had reported to the archdiocese. And we'd dutifully publish that in the paper and never followed up on it and when it came up in two thousand and one or two thousand and two none of us including myself. Remember the story at all. I think that's why we love this movie. Metoo in real life. People are flawed in the movie captures that it shows what we did well and what we should've done sooner and that's really authentic real life into real reporting. There is so much that is authentic about this film and actually i was going to ask you about that. What was it like being impersonated. I mean i know you guys were on the set. The actors and the writers kept interviewing you. We have a clip from director and writer. Tom mccarthy who's sitting with co writer. Joe singer on that very issue interviewing reporters is a nightmare total. You know. it's like trying to heal a doctor like reporters. Just don't wanna be interviewed. They like asking the questions and had to ask some tough questions. And you could tell we walk out of a lot of interviews while we're going to have to go back because they didn't give us what we needed. That is so funny to hear. Because i know in my case i felt very guarded at the beginning. They asked very probing and sometimes personal questions. Like how did this project affect your marriage. Did you cook dinner with your husband. What kind of haircut did you have. Did you wear jewelry. We spent a lot of time with our actors. We took walks. We had dinners. And i just thought of those as walks and dinners but then when we saw the movie and we realized they were depicting are mannerisms. We realized that all those walks and dinners were homework. They were.

I'm Debbie Russ with the BBC News. 20 Men go on trial in Paris today accused of involvement in the worst post war atrocity in France.

Dozens of women have marched through the streets of the Afghan capital, Kabul, demanding rights a day after the Taliban announced a new interim government with no female representatives. Some were carrying a banner with the photo of a pregnant police officer who was killed by gunmen over the weekend at her family home in the province of Gore, a news organization said One of its reporters covering the protest had been taken into custody by the Taliban. On Tuesday, Three people were killed during a protest in the city of Herat. United States has criticized the composition of Afghanistan's new interim government. State Department spokesman expressed concern that the administration contained only Taliban members and close associates. Her. Habiba Sarabi is a former minister of women's affairs in Afghanistan. It was not unexpected from our side. It's not strange because this is their mentality. The time that we were negotiating with them showed that their mentality is different. They don't believe to women's side. They don't believe to human rights. So that's why they didn't bring any women. Anyone from minority leaders of a pro democracy group, which organizes Hong Kong's annual vigil to remember those massacred in Tiananmen Square in 1989 have been arrested. Wow.

"We've always lived in one but they that flowering of the idea. Yes sometimes if bad things are happening you may not get away with aaron. David miller obviously an experienced diplomat. Tweeted something that i really i. I can relate to said the entire afghan enterprise reveals the flaws in american judgment and competency in the limits to america power and influence not their permanent demise And i think that does speak to this. You mentioned the israelis Leaving southern lebanon. Also you know. Very chaotic chaotic for israel and chaotic even more for the southern lebanese army. Israel since has not actually since then but for the past. Let's say decade engages in something that is called the campaign between the wars right you kind of work with precision attacks under the radar in faraway countries to avoid a total war. That is what israel is doing. Maybe that is part of the future plan of the united states but here there really was a case of overreach right. It was trying to nation build trying to bring democracy. This is just a terrible tragedy. I mean if you think of the fact that you would sit we would talk. Twenty years ago and say in twenty years we would be discussing. The united states withdraw from afghanistan negotiating with the taliban took to withdraw. The taliban is still there. That's a tragedy the whole withdrawal and the way was done Was was a tragedy. The question is what kind of america will emerge from this and this is an argument. What what is the. Us's role in the world is an argument that we're not we're not having now. I mean jefferson and hamilton. Were having in the eighteenth century right. So i think it's essential for you. It's hard for someone not from the us to have this. This is what america should do. But i think that from my point of view. I hope that they choose to take part in in what is happening in this region. So i think we agree. There is plenty on our agenda for joe biden for the baden station actually recently for the all the allied countries of the world who were involved in other with afghanistan and there is plenty of guilt to go around and reflection to be had. We did promise. A hollywood alastair and we have one we are about to hear. What did we let him introduce himself. Hello unholy listeners. Higher knit and johnnie. It's sacha baron cohen here with my.

And the protagonist <Speech_Female> nodding <Speech_Female> and going along with that <Speech_Female> you'll sane power <Speech_Female> is wrong <Speech_Female> and so you need to <Speech_Female> readjust the power <Speech_Female> in that scene. <Speech_Female> But to your protagonist <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> you'll select characters can <Speech_Female> always contributes <Speech_Female> and they <Speech_Female> can always <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Some very loud people <Speech_Female> outside my <SpeakerChange> window <Speech_Female> as much fire <Speech_Female> and <Speech_Female> so <Speech_Female> you'll side hurt <Speech_Female> as can always <Speech_Female> contribute <Speech_Female> and help <Speech_Female> your protagonist <Speech_Female> to find <Speech_Female> direction. <Speech_Female> But it should always <Speech_Female> be your protagonist <Speech_Female> making <Speech_Female> the decisions or driving <Speech_Female> the team <Speech_Female> all <Speech_Female> pulling <Speech_Female> everybody together <Speech_Female> so yeah thinking <Speech_Female> about it intensive <Speech_Female> seen power <SpeakerChange> i think really <Silence> helps <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> definitely <Speech_Female> The protagonist <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> has to <Speech_Female> pro tag. <Speech_Female> <SpeakerChange> <Speech_Female> They <Speech_Female> have to be the <Speech_Male> most active <Speech_Female> driving character <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> Yeah <Speech_Female> so <SpeakerChange> so. <Speech_Female> This has been <Speech_Female> a really great <Speech_Male> chats about <Speech_Male> a lot of <Speech_Female> different aspects <Speech_Female> of side characters <Speech_Female> on and <Speech_Female> how to make them work <Speech_Female> in your story <Speech_Female> To <Speech_Female> have any parting <SpeakerChange> thoughts <Speech_Female> you'd like to share with <Silence> our listeners. <Silence> <Speech_Female> Embrace <Speech_Female> your side <Speech_Female> characters. And <Speech_Female> i think if you do <Speech_Female> one thing <Speech_Female> off <Speech_Female> to this <Speech_Female> cost. <Speech_Female> It's to <Speech_Female> think about how <Speech_Female> you can embody <Speech_Female> the <Speech_Female> theme in your side <Speech_Female> characters mall. <Speech_Female> 'cause i think that's the one <Speech_Female> thing that <Speech_Female> pulls everything <Speech_Female> together in <Speech_Female> a much more holistic way <Speech_Female> in story. <Speech_Female> I <Speech_Female> mean there's lots of things you can <Speech_Female> do. But i <Speech_Female> really feel <Speech_Female> strongly about <Speech_Female> theme inside characters <Speech_Female> because saima <Speech_Female> psychiatrist <Speech_Female> i represent the fame <Speech_Female> and it's just <Speech_Female> a wasted opportunity <Silence> so yeah absolutely <Speech_Female> so so <Speech_Female> great.

"Buffy the vampire slayer and torre was completely french so although this is mostly about like killing women to further and mail plot line of male character up does happen to go stay so tara is girlfriend and she gets shot. The only reason she gets shot is literally to send off a cliff into like doc witch miss and there's not really any other purpose for a toll and so these are terrible examples for why you should kill off a female characters in thomas characters allah Yeah so like. I would say those are probably the biggest mistakes and that was like really long now. No that was really really good in depth Mistakes that people make especially with like killing off characters definitely. Please don't kill your gays unless you have a whole bunch of gays and it's like a serial killer is thanks. Yeah yeah. I something that definitely come to it but i think one of the big ones that a lot of really beginning writer struggle with. I know that. I like had to write and rewrite scenes that my my first published in villa multiple times. I had a grandmother character that i loved. She was great. I had liked. Develop this whole back story for her in. She just wasn't extra person in every scene. And i had to send grandma on vacation and she came back to books later when she was useful. Yeah that's exactly. What obese characters doing. If it's nothing is great she can just wait. Yeah exactly exactly so so. We've talked a little bit about how to how to create this kind of illusion of of this fully developed character. One one point that your book covers on that has been peeve of mine is like when a side character. How do you make a side character appeal without taking over. I'm looking at you token a dominantly team sound like was it was real protagonist there So how how.

"Reasons. Aw killing a heart would be because it's gonna make your readers cry like death in a book should have a meaning and a reason behind it and the reason for that is Deck creates consequences. Actually that's a mistake. Rightist killing awesome character and then having no consequence be it emotional like an emotional reaction. Be a complication be. It's a creating conflict. There should be a reason. You kill off your character and that that should ban lead to a consequence And so yeah just randomly hacking aac heart because that's human side arches or it's gonna make his cry or it's shocking. The problem with creating shocking death is it as nicely shackling and so actually an issue. Very dude foreshadowing. Nine hundred ten you'll read is just gonna feel disappointed Really good example of that. And this is a spoiler warning it in the divergence series. She ended the series run across. Kills off the protagonists and the reason the reason it's such a shock factor spoiler a needless might muscle. What happening the reason. It doesn't work. Because she's wanting a heroine's journey a hero's journey on inherent. Johnny you spice to have like everybody come together and everybody as a team. We will one defeat villa and restaurants. And that's not what happens. She gives hon protagonist. A hero's ending weather here is crisis himself and the whole full books. She wrote a heroine's. Johnny and so shot to dent in wet and that's why so many people across with her at the end i think other bad reasons include like killing off a diva's carrot whether whether the lgbt got mental health issues that they're cola there is this is so common it actually has a name so it's called bury your gaze right because it's such a common thing am i saying you can never kill a diverse character. I am not saying wartime saying. Is you better. Make sure you have a julie. Good reason full killing them and that's backed up with purpose with consequence and yeah..

"They continue to believe that. Lie then you can have characters move from like a truce to ally. We can have characters moving from believing allied to a truce within that they conflict stop on that arc an on that representation so like the antagonised goes from positive to negative because they don't believe love is enough but maybe they started out that way and they end up not believing that love is enough anymore. Oversee your protagonist well depending on the type of storytelling would go from a negative to a positive. So in this instance we were saying. They had their family in their wonderful life but actually it wasn't enough for them and they they big selfish striving for all these things and then they get to the end they flip flopped and now they have a positive like a presentation of the same. So like there are lots and lots of different ways you can represent that theme and it's trying to create subplots so another good example is like the hunger games and you've got chemist nasty represent sacrifice or self sacrifice. I should say and presidents snyder so she sacrifices herself multiple times to save assistant to save pita to save loads of different people. And then you've got presents not who sacrifices everybody else for his own good and say that's like a negative representation of thing but then your side characters. Pizza makes a cap. Miss make more sacrifices. So he's representing like a different type sacrifice where she's org the in the games and she's moving along those obstacles. He then gets sick and she has to go and get stuff to help him prove makes a sacrifice in terms of teaming up and she tells catnip wounds at and then she ends up delaying. So that's another version of sacrifice so she embodies sacrifice in a different way as well and then gales of it selfish. You know so. There's all these different representations of sacrifice but they're all connected to the same thing that all connected to the heart and each autry is pumping in just a slightly different way to slightly different medication whilst still being in a revolving around that holistic theme. That's a really great way to put it that. I really liked that artery metaphor especially as you're talking about theme And how it relates to some plots because a lot of new writers really struggle with okay. Here's my main might flesh this out with subplots And coming back to the theme is a way you can brainstorm. Subplots and and and minor arcs. Fear for your Site characters so yeah. That's a really great analogy really resonated a lot. Yeah i would add that for folks who are writing something i think about this because i'm a cozy mystery writer nar characters. Don't change drastically from book to book To maybe think of them dig a little deeper for that thing because they could always be justice. But really if you look at it good mystery. There is a secondary theme underneath absolutely in some respects. Like the more specific. The message in the lane. The better you know. I was i guess because if you look at the hunger games could boil it down to a much more specific sentence about about theme but also it for simplicity. You can also just brand of a sacrifice. So yeah definitely completely agree there's so many different facets to like justice all. Yeah yeah absolutely Yet is there some great things to think about.

"So i think this is the thing like you can have a book. Where only your protagonist embodies fame and your antagonised is like the opposite of the theme but the books that tend to create book hangovers or like really leave. A mark on your rita are the ones where your fame is threaded through everything and that includes your major side characters so one of the ways that i like to look about. Look at this. Is you'll books. Name is a maths equation. A- came so your protagonist is the correct answer to your theme maths equation you'll antagonised. Oil villain is incorrect. Answer to your mass equation..

"And that's what you'll side cart day they all pillars for your protagonists on. Foia story so to answer your question. What what are the main types of psychiatrists. It depends on the angle gumming. At the way that i think is the simplest to break it. Down is in terms of cameo minor and major. Of course you have things like archetypes which probably lots of people might have so. I was going to talk about. But i think it's easier to talk about the types of side character in terms of cami minor and major. And that's because this helps you to understand the prevalence of each type of psychic and who needs subplots and character Things which is the thing that i think a lot of people struggle with so cameo is that starter. Cameo is like that really brief flash in a pan. Have you ever watched the film the matrix. Yeah okay so is one of my favorite films and in that movie nato gets rescued out of like this computer generated world. Cooled the matrix in order to defeat the villain. He has to go in train in the matrix. Morpheus the guy who pulled him out the matrix takes him into this Different trainings end up in. Looks like a new york street very very busy people everywhere. Everybody's wearing the same thing. Oh hustling and bustling and holding briefcases. And what happens is or the sudden. Is this woman. This only flash of color in the whole of the scene. And she's wearing a red dress and she walks posner and her purpose in the film is to distract him but she's the perfect example of a cameo character is that is old that anybody can remember about the woman. She's a woman and readdress. Maybe you can remember that. She was quite cute and she had blonde hair. But that's about it. You don't really. There's no debt. You don't know her name. She doesn't say anything and that's it. So that's a really good example of water cameo characterists that completely throwaway. Maybe they hold a door open. Maybe they were a nameless. God in your book. So that's the cameo characters. Unusually there are hundreds of these things in your book or your films or whatever whatever type of story or writing and that's because they are just throw away characters. Mina character says alike cameo times five like just a pluck around number out of the they appear. More than once pops. They appear a few times. They might even have a name. They might get described. But they don't really leave any lasting impact on your story so they will probably have transactional exchanges with hairy. They might people men or they might be a shopkeeper in a place that you protagonist goes to a lot but they don't really influence the protagonist. They don't really influence a lot. Further than a transactional exchange so good examples. Would be like like mr filch from the harry potter series. He's the giannetta with the cat. He's there a few times. He does eat a sometimes..

Thank you for coming on and chatting with us today. Would you like to introduce yourself to our listeners. what you write and what you do of coal style. My name is sasha black. I am a writer I write both nonfiction writing books helping office to to develop their writing more. And i also write fantasy books I've published some young adults.

So it's cold eight steps to side characters how to kroft supporting roles with intention pups and power. So it's a among full of book. But i it's essentially a book to help you like right better side characters. I started out with villains. I write a book on here. Racer felt natural to complete that triad with a book on side characters as well yeah absolutely side characters can be really make or break story yet. It's always the character in the villain that get you know. They are the sexiest characters. They're they're the ones that get the most attention So would you mind telling us a little bit about some of those different types of site characters. Because they're not all name. Yeah absolutely up. Let me start by saying why they're important. Because i think a lot of people basically they spend most of that time working on their protagonist and then they'll throw but a time working on that Villain even though i argue. You should sit that on its head. And then they tend to slap side characters on the side and they'll they'll put some like deavere ash dialogue in just to like spice them up but actually that avoids giving them any of the depth and meaning that they can have so the way that i think it is like if you'll book was a body you'll story theme is the sole you'll protagonist is the hot annual side characters are the arteries so you'll heart doesn't function to its fullest without its arteries and veins like it ios autism baynes pump the blood to the heart which enables it to work properly..

Hospitalizations overthrew the chest. We couldn't have said that because there wasn't question scenarios at the time and the data that was coming in. I think was broadly supportive of saying that it might have been. It might have been a bit more bowl but no i think that was there. I think for weeks before we reopened. There was a clear break in infections and hospitalizations. I'm delighted that we now both agree that it would have to open up on the twenty first of june the cover piece. This week does talk about what happens. When government reopen society and hasn't properly communicated it's about freedom the right to reply and it strikes me that the government in the best case scenario having delayed for four weeks would have used that time to communicate to the public cases are going to go up. And they would have reformed their test and trace system so we won't be experiencing pain democ. They would been working with businesses to help encourage customers to go back to their old ways to overcome the fears. Instead they got spooked by the rising number of cases which i always suspected they would. Their narrative became extremely negative. Sacha avid tried for about a week to give people and then the prime minister's rhetoric overshadowed and we got to a place where unfreedom day they had not at all made the case for going back to our lives and living with risk. The prime minister was lambasting young people for daring to go to nightclubs to enjoy the freedoms he had just restored. He was talking about how he is going to bring in vaccine passports.

It's not political persecution by any means it's anything but that these people need to face the music for what they've done and that's exactly what's going to happen so i just want to show you this other clip here remember more just to kind of change gears a little bit so a federal judge in new york today dismissed roy. Moore's law suit against sasha baron cohen over a segment where sasha baron cohen pretended to be an israeli counterterrorism expert testing a device. That he said would only be around sex offenders. So you have to look at this clip. Go to youtube and find this clip. Sasha baron cohen roy moore put that in the search to find it. It's it's hilarious for one. Sasha baron cohen has got this unit brow from hell and video or this picture. I didn't put the video on. Because i would probably get tagged With an infraction by youtube. So i couldn include the video but you can find it out. Here's a print screen of it. So what he's doing that. Prince creed is he's using the device and he's putting it over roy moore in. It beeps like help. He gets another guy in there. The cameraman nothing beats. He puts up a roy moore and it beeps like hell and then roy moore goes on to say i have been married for thirty three years and he goes on with all of this stuff so the evidently.

Moore's wife kayla more alleged intentional infliction of emotional distress and fraud and judge moore loan additionally pleased claim of defamation thrown out through the whole lawsuit out nothing left. Nothing left to it. I mean if this man is so. Smart roy moore chief justice of the alabama supreme court. God help me if he is that smart. Why in the sam hill did he. Sit down with. Sasha baron cohen with a device that supposedly goes off when it when it's near a pedophile. Why in sam hill. What was he thinking. I mean really folks. Does it take a lot of intelligence to to figure out it was. It was a trick. It was a choke. Evidently he's not smart enough to figure that out. I am so glad. I am so dang glad that he did not get elected as senator of alabama. I i mean. I'm just so thankful when i read about stuff like this i mean who would sit down with with someone that has a device that does this my guide.

Would you make of this prank comedy from eric. Andre the i ve very good time watching bad trip as i think you did as well which is an. It's an extension of what he does.

This kind of spont- spontaneous haphazard Using the materials of reality almost as props you know and he's fearless in the way that some of those other extemporaneous comedians. Sacha baron cohen. Dr voted also reminded me of the. We won't go too quickly into the cult thing yet that reminded me of jackass. Just in the extremity of it. I mean i happen to think jackass was very good for culture and probably belongs in the louvre museum and the smithsonian in the hall of fame is one of the great things ever for me for lotteries in But also just that idea of the body and extremity and feeling like something is both very kind of disgusting and unembarrassed of being disgusting which is kinda gets into the territory of cults. 'cause cult is all about taboos and breaking them in exceeding them. But you also want to be too pretentious about delay. This is a movie. Where to people's penises get stuck in a chinese finger trap or where people projectile vomit or just absolute insane exchanges in public spaces and maybe was just my mood. But i found it like just devastatingly funny from from beginning tent and laughed kind of the way i laughed at stuff like jackass and borough which is this very liberating

"Of the most interesting things when you. When you look at the quarterly reports, the ten cues in the annual report ten ks the one of the things you know always skim through the results because. They're the numbers matter and everything. That's what everyone's going to be writing about tonight and tomorrow. But the thing that I always zero in on is the section called risk. Factors. And then when you look at the risk factors section, then the thing that you do is you compare the wording in the risk factors section for this quarter to last quarter and a quarter before that and and boy oh boy, you can find some really good stories when you see that all of a sudden showed up as a risk factor that had to be disclosed this is this is the kind of stuff that that they're putting they're putting that in. There because they see this as possibly something that's going to happen. Right? You know six months from now or two or three years from now. But when when the bad news happens they're they're they're basically inoculating themselves against shareholder lawsuits by disclosing it in the risk factors. So that's from a from pure lay persons or journalist as opposed to analysts point of view. That's the place to go and read I as you get get all the juicy dirt. of course. Sorry before before we. Miss this point you talked about Ed about. What Google the breakout cloud business on their fact sheet but they may never do that because wasn't it last year they said that they're going to give it a couple more years, and if it doesn't work out, they might diverse divest and like. Google way. There's possibility. They're not breaking out right because they might get rid of it and They don't want it to show up in the book. That's there's a certain discipline that Google CFO ruth poor at his imposed over the last few years that that wasn't there. Maybe in the early days of Larry and Sergei where she she's pretty quick. If something is not going to turn a profit she's pretty quick to say, okay, boys it's bye bye and There has been a little bit of a detriment to Google because I think there's also the impression that Google doesn't stick with anything. You know well, that that same thing you know what poor it's been doing with the various other bats I think is actually behind something that happened with waymo earlier this year for the first time back in February of this year, Waymo took outside investment from outside of alphabet up until now, it's the self-driving project at Google has always been internally funded by alphabet and Google and this year they took three billion dollars in outside investment for the first time and you know it wasn't talked about very much. You know other than saying Oh. Yeah I've got all this. Is all excited about you know Google raising this extra money. You know why? Why are they suddenly taking money from other investors and I? Think it's because poor at looked at, you know the the prospects for automated vehicles becoming a real business and decided to you know it's probably going to happen but it's GonNa, take a lot longer than everybody was thinking. Two three or four years ago, and she probably told Waymo look if you WanNa keep this going, you're going to have to find some funding elsewhere and that's why they went to Silverlake and Magnano few other investors and raise this extra money to give them extra runway until they can actually scale a business out of that in three four five years time You know. So you know poor at probably told you can keep it going. We're we're not gonNA shut you down but you're going to have to find funding somewhere else and it's not just more money. It's also reducing their exposure the. The bet fails only owned two thirds of it. That's better than if they own one hundred percent of it. So at data away with Google, calls them as other bets. Historically Google's noth- nothing but lose money on other bats. They make enough money in search and advertising that they can fun dollars stuff but they've yet to find the magic bullet that's going to give them a new business. They really haven't even android I don't think is a huge benefit to them. Only, to the extent that it that it props up search search business or. Yeah. Yes. Search and advertising sixty or seventy percent of of mobile traffic worldwide that my you know my question on the for Sam on taking the external investment in something like Waymo is that it also? Lessons that the the the likelihood that if they have a home run if they if this becomes the business, you know one of the businesses that can help sustain them when you know if search advertising gets into trouble, but all of a sudden, you've allowed a whole bunch of outside investing in their year now, sharing the profits with other people and a lot of that ameliorating effect that you're hoping for. Doesn't approve you, right? Yeah. You reduce the risk, but you also reduce the upside when you bring in other partners and I mean, that's that's true of any startup business, the more investors you bring in. The founders are ultimately going to get less of the the the windfall if there is one. aright. So say ED having looked at the risks and the rewards of the Microsoft. Balance Sheet. It was pretty good quarter, right? It absolutely. Was Yeah and. The thing to me that's amazing is they have in terms of risk they have managed to keep their head down. While every one of their competitors is just taking fire left and right and there you know I didn't see. Sacha. In you know. In those in any of those hearings this past week. So you know it's it's This is a company that is they are really humming along with a boring. But? Profitable. Business. INCOME UP THIRTY PERCENT YEAR OVER YEAR Thirteen, point nine, billion for the quarter not bad not shabby although on par with every other these companies we're talking about all the all the other big. Tech giant's behemoths little sidebar here. These investigations by whether it was the house antitrust subcommittee that issued a very long scathing report that did include. Did it not Microsoft? Maybe not maybe they feel like Microsoft's been spanked already. So they don't need to be spanked again the Department of Justice investigation into Google, a number of investigations in the EU but the US investigations. especially. This past week's testimony. Really. About section to thirty cm tainted by politics to some degree and I have to wonder if there really is any real risk. To these companies anymore than. The president's executive order against TIKTOK has harmed Tiktok in any way if anything, it's probably just increased downloads. The politics seem to hinder the ability to kind of. Agree on what to do. You. Agree. Ed. Oh God. Only, the the whole the whole you know, the the section to thirty hearings that weren't they were just they were just grandstanding no political grandstanding it was it was political grandstanding it was you know and and and the real thing is when you look at. A hearing that is legitimate is going to have legislation that comes out of it. Right I failed to see how any legislation could come out of this that would that would get past senses. There's no concern about what to do on on anything no and and all of the possibilities no matter which direction you go make things worse not better for everyone I mean, it's it is the classic lose lose proposition. So this was just an opportunity for primarily this was. The Senate you know. So it's run by the It's run by Republicans and it was an opportunity for Republican senators to yell at social media companies and create sound clips right for their round by taking us for the running ads or to share with their chair with their constituents tough on twitter. Let me tell you. It also diminishes the power that it would be in the past like, Oh, I got called in front of Congress, I don't want to happen. When it happens every other week, you could there is a note about how calm all the the CEOS were like when they were being questioned even though they're being screamed and yelled at, it's because they're like so this isn't going to do anything no one cares and nothing's going to come of it. So it's unfortunate that the power of Congress or the power of the Senate. Is having diminished effect because of this theater in an era where facts are don't hold the same weight. So it's the IT. Even, both sides Republican and the Democrat size they're talking as if they didn't really understand what the law was governing the these companies or how their place in it could affect the future of the Internet.

This Straightforward Exercise Will Pinpoint Your Superpower
"You may have heard me talk about the business course. I took last year. That's been totally changing my world. My business coach Dean Graciosa launched last me and I've gone through the content of few times now because I find result discovering these new nuggets ways that can implement the advice into my business and into the lives of my students to one of the big things of course talks about is tapping into your superpower this unique mix of knowledge and experience. That only you have and I know. Superpower sounds kind of cheesy and unrealistic. But stay with me here. You might consider it your core competencies or unique ability instead knowing your superpower will not only show you that you have a set of completely unique skills and gifts you can offer to others but it also allows you to tap into what you're really good at and focus on those things to further. Move the needle in your life in business. The whole underlying premise of getting in touch with your superpower is that you owe the world your knowledge. Whoa like you owe it to the world. It's truly that special that thing that you know so well. Your superpower isn't second nature to everyone or others would have to work for years to gain the same level of knowledge that you have and so many times. We're so caught up in our busy lives with all this noise and chaos and with working our booties off to reach out next level that we have no clue what our own superpower even is. It's also because it's often something that comes really naturally to your that you don't even really think about all that often. It just is like it's so obvious to you that you don't even acknowledge it as being a gift if you'll listen to this podcast you likely have some sort of expertise you probably have an online following and maybe even a business that you run in some way you are impacting and influencing others with your gifts and your talents today. I want to dig into how what you do and what you know can come together in a really amazing way as your superpower which you can actually turn into teachable material to share with the world and before you hit play on a different episode. Because you're worried this simply won't apply to you. I just want you to know. It doesn't need to be strictly business related either in my private facebook group for the knowledge business blueprint that course that. I took last year. I've been walking alongside a group of students who also took the program. I've been a mentor to them. As we've worked through the content together and there is a thread with over four hundred and seventy six comments with everyone sharing their own superpower four hundred seventy six comments. Do you know what it's like to read people sharing in proclaiming what their superpowers with pride. I literally had tears rolling down my cheeks. One group member Madison and air wrote. Is anyone else just mind blown when they realized that their superpower is actually a superpower like you just thought it was something that everyone knew how to do the more you thought about it? You realize that it isn't necessarily the case. I mean yes. That is exactly what I'm saying. We often can't even see our own superpowers until we dig in and observe what we're doing differently than others by the way she shared that her superpower is reverse engineering any dream or goal to get the result. You want like how cool is that? I certainly don't think everyone has that knowledge. Melania and other group members shared that hers telling compelling Stories Sacha Cool gift for those who want to pursue public speaking or even just become a better communicator. Like imagine sitting down with someone and talking about your life and having them help you pinpoint the key lines and phrases that communicate your story in a super compelling way shares superpower is finding the positive even the most challenging situations. I mean I could use a bit of that because for me. I usually can only find the good once. I'm looking backwards when I mean the message to think of it absolutely not and certainly no silver linings to be found. Hans learned that he has a natural knack to help you believe in themselves. And they are worthy of investing. And Diana's superpowers helping overwhelmed driven women's simplify their lives and cut the crap her words not mine and the thing that I love so much about. All of these superpowers is that. They're so distinctive to the people they belong to and there are things that feel totally second nature to them. They might have had to learn a lot about communication or leadership or intuition over the years to get to this place where they're superpower feels second nature but that's exactly the point your unique experiences education life journey have set you up to have one of a kind abilities and know how that literally no one else in the world could duplicate because our walks are also different but more often than not. There are a whole lot of people out there who want to know what you already know the love to be able to simplify their lives or shortcut. They're learning and get fast results at the things that aren't second nature to them and it's up to all of us collectively to pinpoint our superpowers and then offer it to others so that they can learn from it benefit from it and change your lives to you if you've been wondering where your knowledge and natural talents meet in a way that you too can package them up and offer them to others.

7 Social Media Tools for 2020
"We're gonNA talk about seven social media tools for twenty twenty twenty and beyond because we want to arm you with all the crazy desk or help you really manage all the craziness around social media because there's a lot going on and so I'll start off first number one I really like using sprout social sprout social is great for keep accountability on my teams of the reporting is really good social media. You can integrate with your limited pages your instagram pages. Also whatever else you have going on twitter facebook etc so that's good it also allows you due to kind of manage your different profiles so social media management tool but I think it's strong point is reporting so if you have a need to get more granular reporting or simple reporting. I recommend taking a look at sprout social. How often do you use spouse social like I probably use it like twice a week twice a week? It has made a huge difference for you. Yeah that's a big lake. Dow We could detect patterns. That were just like okay. Let's do more of this on social. So it's it's been a pretty pretty big guiding post for us all right so another social media toll that you guys should end up using especially in twenty twenty is either either many chat or mobile monkey you WanNa end up building your messenger lists as quick as possible. It's going to be more competitive in the future and Sacha GonNa get more and more are expensive as well. So this is the time might open. Rates Through Messenger are higher than e mail. It's one of the best channels out. There unsubscribe rates are really high. But that's okay okay. This is a subscriber rates are really high as well. But overall another beginning traffic from Messenger those visits are converting into leads and customers for us as well and it works extremely well for e commerce to all right number. Three is in grammar so in grab I N. G. R. A. M. E. R. dot com. What I like about Grammar is it tells you the right Hashtags to pick with instagram? And I can tell you I literally just wrote a post last week and usually by its. I don't have a huge grab maybe forty seven hundred followers followers or something like that but I put a post up. There took the Tebbit's to come up with it. I put in Hashtag using it. grabber and I got like six hundred eighty seven likes or something and the reach jumped up to like twenty one thousand so not bad for such a small grab account like vied at the gas just proof that hashtags actually work another quick easy. Social media to offer for you is Canada. INSTAGRAM is really popular. It's GonNa keep growing actually think it's going to overtake facebook day. Just my hypothesis. Because it's more personal most people I know who really WanNa see what their friends and family are doing. They do it on instagram now. They don't really do it on facebook so speaking of instagram. If you WANNA create content for for a check out Canada it makes it really simple to create content images all for free cool and then the fifth one. I'm going to give is is to buddy so I like to buddy for Youtube because it tells you keyword difficulties tells you tags you should be using it shows you the top tags for maybe a video that you might be looking at you might be looking at competitors for ideas. It's just an entire suite. There's a lot that you could do with it. Added shows you growth rates at different things like that for channel so if you need a sweet to cut got a bad juror your YouTube Just used to buddy all right another one I have for you guys is bid Iq. So I love Youtube. Youtube has a ton of potential. The second most popular search engine out there vid- I Q will help you maximize your youtube traffic. It'll tell you all the right keywords to target. which ones should be placing being in your titles? You're descriptions it just think of like a Sim. Rauscher a drafts or uber suggest wanting those tools but just for Youtube Youtube optimization and thus Kua help you do all right number seven so if you are thinking about starting to podcasts at all which I think you should If you have anything to say and I think you're smart Mari. If you're listening to death so you do have something to say. There's always seven hundred thousand podcast in the world. There's over a billion blogs in the world but what I like about spotify if you're civita gear at your podcast spotify to it's free to do it's not like you get you lose your reach by submitting to multiple platforms but spotify gives you good demographic data on you know your your audience shows you how many followers you have shoes you. What your your audience Ted Solicitude and that gives you good guidance? I in terms of what you WANNA do. We look at it from time to title free to do. Just go to spotify podcasts. At that You can basically go ahead and add it

News and Perspective with Tom Hutyler
Sacha Baron Cohen leaves Bernie Sanders befuddled in premiere of 'Who Is America?'
"Hutler following these stories Russian President Vladimir Putin rejects allegations that Moscow had collected compromising materials, on US President Donald, Trump or his family the Russian leader. Dismissed these claims as sheer, nonsense he was responding to a question during a joint news conference. With Trump following their summit in Helsinki a federal judge temporarily halted deportations. Of families who've been recently reunited after they were separated by the Trump administration, the, American Civil Liberties. Union filed paperwork saying attorneys were concerned. About rumors of mass deportations following reunification of children ages. Five to seventeen with their parents judge Dana Sabra said today he, ordered, a, temporary, halt, to any. Deportations for a week entertainment most Americans learned Sasha baron Cohen was when the movie borat was released others might know better as. The French Acer in Talladega nights, the comedian. As gifted as disguising his identity which has caused some controversy with a, new series, on Showtime called. Who is America and this scene. He poses as. An Israeli anti-terror expert who apparently fools gun rights activists and Republican politicians in taking part in a fake firearm instructional video for three year old I needed to find politicians who would fight for the second amendment. Of Todd lives to bear firearms at school writing on the show is Stevens I took, from the Washington Post, who joins us on the KOMO news. I see but thanks for, being with us today I guess the first question is what's the. Point what's the point of this show is it just to try to. Make other people look kind of silly Question and I think a lot? Of his critics say this is sort of ambush comedy at its worst Someone who does he say target a lot of. Republican politicians targeting Democrats others as well but there's, a certain sort of seen shaming that's happening here I would say that he doesn't have to be made. That this is a guy he wants to pose a playboy Of American leadership at American industries and the fact that you know he's doing it as. You say white by. Getting UPS as for three year old gun ownership to be led by some fairly August politicians I think they play This is on Showtime they already have kind of a niche audience, those who are willing to pay a premium for its content is this show maybe too big of a. Risk somebody like Showtime Well it's interesting it's certainly. I don't think they would get on a on a on a sort of prestige cable. Network we're talking about an FX AMC only. Would never, flam broadcast on cable, or streamer like an, Amazon I think it would be something that would be apply obviously. Does fly until the time I don't know how many it. Actually getting you know on the other side you have Joe. Walsh the conservative personality. From Illinois congressman who, has an the Showtime boycott so I don't. Know how this is going to net out it's going to bring some people in the network at NASA it's. Not a risk What. Are people out there Calling for a boycott I think. She'll be doesn't make it I'm sure he had a decent following coming into this with. The movie work he'd done and what kind of target audience do you think he has here in this? In this for the show Talk about Obama I g show which was on the floor Those those shows were good Ten twelve fifteen, years ago I think Laura If I'm not mistaken Kim on thousand six, so I think he does on the following but. He's been a little, bit off the radar he's done, acting noted, but hasn't done this kind of you know put on having makeup and impersonate. People to public officials in a long. Time and so The hope at. Least from the people I've talked to know, about this thing that he's going to bring in. A new fan base, while building on his own one, but it, needs to be a risk in Albuquerque because I think a lot of people. Don't know A lot of. Younger viewers has again this sort of bio.

"News quote i said something at the hearings yesterday about purple hearts which another network named after a four legged animal has made a big deal about i regret using the term purple heart i never thought purple heart should have been given to agent struck steve cohen them onto say he was speaking metaphorically and not literally but folks you don't toss a purple heart around metaphorically it is way too much symbolism and meaning for those that truly understand the nature of this award it is typical for the democrats to try to trivialize it by the way the fraternal order of police chief in columbus ohio has denied politics played a role in stormy daniels arrest of course she was arrested last week and then the charges dropped later that same day for allegedly touching the pay patrons and vice versa at a strip club in columbus ohio police chief went on to say that he did not pad his arrest statistics did not count as two busts in that particular case you're wondering look i just got from oslo mela new sasha baron cohen series america remember we talked about this last week he duped sarah palin into an interview by posing as a disabled veteran and the veterans military widows and others are slamming cohen for personnel a wounded warrior cohen and cbs and showtime are now claiming that he did not pose as a wounded warrior but i have a tendency to believe sarah palin and others including the latest is now they're they've punked a bunch of republican congressman and retired congressmen into this arming three year old's in kindergarten and the way that several of those congressman said they were asked to read a script as part of a comedy routine and so they they went along with it and he's he's using that as proof that these congressmen were serious about the program called kinder guardians laughable it's not even and finally apparently there was a controversy over a rape skit in this in this tv series so he plays an israeli terrorism expert by the name of aaron murad who says it's not rape if it's your wife and this is you know what the left thinks is funny these days i don't think a lot of people are laughing hi trump putin summit is still underway and again this is a well been going on for quite a bit now so at least for what i guess about forty five minutes or so there's one thing that he's not bring up at all was russian meddling in our elections he talked about a number of things that they were going to be talking about but the russian meddling was not one of them how do we know that because the summit or meaning it's still underway because he just had a presser before the meeting actually started and he said that there are discussions will involve trade the military missiles nuclear weapons in china and he did not mention russia's meddling in the us election in fact i had the sound up when he was making the announcement all right so then we'll see if he if he just glossed over that or whether he intends to bring it up or not have to wait and see post meeting presser which is scheduled probably within the next forty five minutes to hour or so we shall see how that works is there a double standard for tv personalities who comment on politics one woman thinks so and she's written a brand new book she's going to be our guest in about ten minutes so stay tuned for that and see ferrari author of crump divine intervention or not she is things that roseanne barr got a bum rap and she happens to be a former miami dade metro police officer and she was black and a radio personality as well so she's going to join us in about ten minutes to talk about some of the double standards and the apocrypha see right now that the left and even some of the right as well are committing it's coming up on.
