Somebody who's her life is sort of falling apart and she gets in a van and hits the road and lives in RV camps and recreational areas taking on you know little seasonal jobs along the way. It zest a very sweet and very thoughtful, touching movie. I think this is going to be the big winner for tonight. You know People love Frances McDormand. I think that this is gonna have a lot of Lot of success at the Golden Globes tonight. It will be up against the trial of the Chicago Seven, which, if Nomad land doesn't win trial of the Chicago Seven is going to win. This is the Aaron Sorkin.

For best actress in a motion picture Maria Buckler Cova, who is placed Borat's daughter in Borat. Subsequent movie film Kate Hudson from music. And, uh, Anya Taylor, Joy dominated for the movie called Emma for best performance by an actor in a motion picture, musical or comedy. Sasha Baron Cohen is nominated James Corden from the prom Lin Manuel Miranda from Hamilton Dev Patel for the personal history of David Copperfield and Andy Sandberg. For Palm Springs again.

So i'm super excited to help. Moms you know with their thought works.

Those are your gifting. So it's so much easier for others to see our talents than it is for us to really see them. For example people come to me for travel ideas right but even before i was a travel agent. People like to ask me questions because they knew that. I like to plan trips and i liked to figure out how to make them happen. My husband and i even created a vacation planning tool which i have up on the website to buy. I think it's only twenty seven dollars. It's not expensive at all what we did is we created the spreadsheet on their kind of walks. You through like. How can you budget for vacation specially big vacations and what you would need to do to plan each month by paying that out so that you're not in debt by the time you go on vacation so if you're interested in that make sure to check that out on the website is called vacation planning tool and so even before i was a travel agent..

"Mention it on the show via comes back to me But i did a series on my weight loss journey and so that happened in two thousand nine hundred and then now i'm going to share with you. What's going on as of twenty twenty one so with the pandemic travel industry really kind of crashed. I mean people were not traveling and travel agent. That really messed up my business. That was supposed to be my year yet and then it actually became the first year so and what was challenging is. I already had done all the work. I planned all the trips because people plan you know so far out and so then not only did i do the work of front. I then had cancelled the trip or reschedule them and do double the work and make nothing and so i didn't wanna panic. We didn't really know where twenty twenty was going and then the girls were homes doing school. There's a lot of changes happening I don't know if you guys have heard on a different package. But i mentioned that. My dad He unexpectedly died Last year and so that was very challenging and so my mind was very occupied. Like most people. And so i was just like. Let's just see how the travel industry plays out. Let's see twenty twenty one looks. Well you know when this up when this airs is probably going to be early march of twenty twenty one and we are still looking at a travel industry. That is not where it used to be so we don't really know where that's going to go. You know people have to decide what they want to do like do they want to get vaccinated travel. Do people really want to wear masks to go to disneyworld. I mean there's all these things that are out of my control. People want to go travel. They have to decide if that's what they want to do. So i decided. I'm like okay..
Disney+ Announces Series Of New Projects
"Story. This week is the disney announced an absolute glut of new projects coming to disney plus or wherever else they might put things disney plus as we all know is a massive streaming service platform. That is growing constantly. that has tons of subs. But the walt disney company as we also know is just a massive player in the industry growing all the time and this was called investor. Day which i already think is a fascinating shift There are no instead of a sweeps. This is their way of letting everybody get excited about their content and its for investors. Their stocks went through the roof. Hit an all time high during this crazy time when people are like stealing food to survive. So it's weird. Because i feel like we're kind of living through the twenties and the thirties at the same time. These days disney went crazy because they just announced a nonstop lineup of tv shows and movies many of which are sequels or interational or offshoots from new star wars shows about characters that you probably never heard of even if you grew up loving star wars to new marvel shows just the images of all the logos alone overwhelmed me. I saw on social media. People just took right off their investor day slide which kind of feels like an apple announcement and and very much inspired by that. There's a lot of but wait. there's more there are so many strange things buried within this. It's almost hard for me to believe. And i think i told our jason helderman the writer. No film school as it was happening. I don't really think they're going to end up producing all of this content and he countered of course they are. But i just remember a time when bob iger. Ceo of disney said. There will be a new disney movie or a new star. Wars movie am sorry released every single year. That lasted like two years. I think before they sought not working and decided to scrap that plan. So i am not convinced that every single one of these shows is going to end up on disney plus or in theaters or wherever people are going to get things for example a live action hybrid chippendale directed by akiva schaffer from lonely island starring. Mullany and andy sandberg and the tweet of this from walt disney studios. You would have to check to make sure verified real account and not a joke because it's so weird there was also another like super weird one. That up was the movie. Light year and this to me feels like an abbott and costello routine. It's about buzz light year. But not the character. The toy from the toy story movies as chris evans who plays light year in this movie tweeted. It's about the real man. That buzz light year is based on which through everybody into some confusion. Because how is this so the toy is based on a real man but not a real real man a fake real man in the universe of toy story and this is the movie about the fake real man that the fake toy is based on in toy story. It's a little odd. It feels like we're at the point where. Ip is becoming just an endless feedback. Loop when i think about that for too long but the whole thing is just is just a crazy. This is the direction of entertainment. I think know again. I darren. James who's also on our team our tech writer at no film school about how there was a time when just one star wars show as lucas talked about like in the nineties seemed like impossible. Where's it gonna live. How are they going to produce. Now there's thirty and it's just like and because of the tech behind the mandalorian. It seems completely plausible and because of streaming platforms plausible to produce it plausible for it to be seen. And they have the subs. So they're making money. Everything about this is such a shaft in the industry.
Social media amplifies conspiracies ahead of 2020 presidential election
"So we may be calling it Election day. But there might not be actual results for days, if not weeks in the presidential race, and that's because of all the mail in voting. Right. And during this waiting game, there is some kind of fear that people will start spreading conspiracy theories, especially on social media. Facebook and Twitter say they are well aware of this. They don't want their platforms used to undermine the democratic process. What are they going to do about it? So before we chat about this, we do want to note that Facebook is among among NPR's financial supporters on Let's turn out. NPR's Shannon Bond, who's been looking at all of this is in San Francisco. Good morning, Shannon. Good morning, David. So you're talking to social media companies about these fears? What are they telling you? Well, you know, they've been thinking about the election and misinformation for a long time, looking back to the lessons of 2016 when Russia used social media to try to manipulate voters, and also you know that things like the 2018 midterms other elections around the world. A lot of this planning takes the form of these threats, modeling exercises, So the companies you know, come up with different attacks and then game out how they would respond. You'll Roth, who leads site integrity, a Twitter gave me some examples. A high profile figures account gets taken over to the possibility of a large scale spam or bought attack to the risks of foreign interference like we saw in 2016. This time, As Facebook's chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, told all things considered this week. You know, these companies were concerned about what happens not just before the election, but also after November, 3rd Both Twitter and Facebook say they're now going to be cracking down on post that say, For example, voting by mail is somehow fraudulent post that advocate violence to disrupt the transfer of power or premature claims of victory, and they'll do that by either labeling are removing We should say that some of these kinds of messages on DH spreading doubts have come from none other than the president of the United States himself. I mean, does that fact complicate things for these companies and what they could do? All right. We heard this again from President Trump this week at the debate. He's suggested he might not accept the results of this election. You know, In the case of Facebook, this company has come around pretty reluctantly to the idea that they might have to somehow moderate what the president says. And of course, we've had elections before where we've had to wait to find out who won remember back in 2000, the Bush versus Gore fight that dragged on for more than a month after Election Day, but disinformation expert Clint Watts says, you know we live in a different world now. Yeah, There's some angry lawyers and Bush versus core, but Is pretty tame compared to today. And of course, there wasn't Twitter or Facebook 20 years ago. It's true, and I mean you cover these companies. Twitter Facebook. Are they up to this? I mean, if this becomes a real mess Well, you know, this is not just about the rules that they're making its about whether they enforced thes rules and enforce them consistently. And frankly, the track record isn't particularly great. You know, Facebook specifically has come under a lot of criticism. For just not doing that not enforcing things evenly. Just this week. The Biden campaign called Facebook quote the nation's foremost propagator of disinformation about the voting process. Because it's chosen toe label and not take down a post by Trump attacked voting Now Facebook insists it applies its policies fairly. But you know, to answer the question. We just don't know if the social networks can hold the line after the election.
Sheryl Sandberg On Facebook and Elections
"Last week John spoke with Facebook Coo Sheryl Sandberg Zoom Call, and we've got their conversation for you as an extended show today. John Obviously people know Sandberg as Facebook, Coo. But what else should they know about her? She's very well known in the tech industry, but also in in circles of leadership in advocacy for women in leadership minorities, leadership But yeah, the most visible role she plays as the number two to mark facebook in that has been enrolled. That's been developing over more than a decade and prior to that, she was a in early employee at Google and played role in the Clinton administration as well. Of course, there's been a lot going on facebook and we've reported on it along the way, but they're kind of always as. So. Why talk to San Merck now it's been particularly busy summer and there was a lot to talk about on the call. You know you've had this advertising boycott. You've had a lot more questions about their willingness to police hate speech and and make sure that civil rights are being protected on the platform You've also had this run up to the election and a lot of focus on small business and what they can do during a pandemic both to stop the spread of misinformation and help small business stay afloat. Cheryl's also well known for her foundation Leinen, and at the time that we talked, it was a black women's payday and Kamala Harris had just been tapped as the vice presidential candidate for Joe Biden. Leinen had just done this study that pointed out some things that are fairly obvious. But maybe we didn't realize how cute the problems really are, and that was related to advancement opportunities for minority women in Business both leadership management opportunities just their ability to move forward in their careers. Here's what she told us the data's incredible right now, men are doing a lot to men are doing an average of fifty hours a week of childcare and housework. That's something. We've never ever seen before women doing an average of seventy one. And Black Women and women of color doing even more that GOP is twenty one hours and single mothers, many of whom are of color but single mothers of all backgrounds are doing twice as many hours per week caring for elderly or sick relatives as well and doing a great majority of childcare and we know that all of these numbers hit women who were core hit poor families harder than wealthier families across the board. But even amongst the elite, what you almost always see is the average woman even if she's working full-time is doing a lot more in the home than the average man and that is a big part of what happens to us in the workforce. Until we get to a quality in the home, we're never getting to a quality in the workplace and that has become even more urgent with coronavirus. These are all important issues to the Wall Street Journal, we cover these things all the time we've been covering them aggressively and comprehensively, but we could only manage to get so much in today's episode. So with the issue at hand is clearly. The election and facebook's huge role to play. They're given what happened in two, thousand, sixteen and expectations in the twenty twenty and that's the part of the conversation we wanted to share with listeners today. Thanks John. A couple of things. We should note here this was a video call. So it's got that feel to it and it was recorded last week we've got that conversation after the break. Robotics, artificial intelligence augmented reality. The future is here listen to tomorrow today with the Wall Street Journal's future of everything the podcast that takes you to the frontlines of science and tech and shows you what's coming next. Look ahead. What do you hear? The future of everything from the Wall Street Journal Subscribe Wherever you get your podcasts. I want to set the context of you know of the problems and our criticisms aimed at your company, not just Sheryl Sandberg the executive, but the user of facebook is well I I. I have to assume that you're not just running a company that you're using the product. The company faces a Lotta Chris the you know. The the frustration about incentivizing the you know spreading misinformation allegedly incentivizing that extremely provocative in hateful speech that that gets through and get seen sometimes gets pushed up in our news feeds. The suspicion facebook is still a place for unwholesome characters and actors can manipulate the system in use misinformation to get results that they're looking for etc.. Nah Not. Not so much yet about the solutions that you guys have put in place in the learnings but how do you feel today about facebook is a place against the backdrop of those criticisms so we do face a lot of those criticisms and anytime you have a platform as large as ours you know three billion plus people on it many many of them daily. We have huge responsibility. And I think that is a responsibility that we really had to grow into. When I look at this election, we are a different company than we were in twenty sixteen and we are going into this election in a very different place in touches on all of the issues that you you're talking about. So let's go back to answer your question to twenty sixteen if you think about the election in two, thousand sixteen. We obviously had systems in place to defend against attacks from other states. But what those normally or thought of what we thought of them I think everyone of them was. People with hacking steal your data, remember the DNC emails remember Sony. That was basically what state actors did, and we've had very good systems in place in great defenses there what we completely missed in two thousand sixteen was not going in and stealing your stuff. But was going in and writing stuff. Fake host trying to get audiences to believe things in ways that you were representing. That's what happened with Russian interference and we completely missed it. So did the FBI. So did every government of the world? That is just not true when you think about the election in twenty eighteen and you think about being election today. We now understand this threat and are deeply engaged in working on it, but we're also not on our own homeland security has a department on miss the FBI has a task force on this in two thousand sixteen we call these groups coordinated inauthentic behaviour. So coordinated authentic like we saw the Russian fake posts in twenty sixteen, we took down networks we'd never heard of it twenty seventeen we took down one. In. The last year we took down over fifty. We now do these. So often at people used to write stories, we've Allah publicly. No one even does does that mean we're going to catch every single thing I will never claim that we will always have every single thing the services big. But does that mean we're in a very different place going into this election Absolutely. And one retake really seriously. We're also trying to get even more proactive on the good like on facebook there's things they're stopping the bad stopping the hate stopping interference with there's also promoting the good at, and that's something that I care a lot about mark as a lot of Bob. So we want yesterday. So it's perfectly timely to talk to you about it, our new voter information center and what that Information Center is a one stop shop where you can go to get accurate information on this election. That's never been more important registering to vote who's eligible that stuff's always hard. But in this election with corona virus and holes potentially closed getting accurate information is even more important. So We'd put this out. It's modeled on our coronavirus center where we put out very definitive information really helped people get the right answers. Now anytime people post about voting on facebook working a link to this center. We're also trying to be as ambitious as we can. I'm a woman I'm I'm owning the word ambitious, but it's ambition by my company. To Register people. So in the last two elections, we registered two million people to vote. which is very large, but we've put out pretty audacious goal that we're GONNA try to help register four million people for this election cycle, which I think would make it the largest effort of its kind by were invasion and were really. We're really proud of that really excited about it. So we I sit here John Taking, you take the criticism when we deserve it very seriously. We take our responsibility very seriously atop to show work every day trying to stop anything bad we gotTA learn quickly bad will always try to get ahead but also trying to use our platform in our services for the good. What do you do as the user? Something on facebook doesn't along there. Do you just pull the red phone out and make a phone call or are you pensive about that and thinking about emits broader context at it needs the nuance as market said it's very hard. To directly police the content and and just hit the button? Yes. So look it is hard to directly police the content. We know that it's very hard to pull heat down. It's very hard to find it and identified. That's why we've invested so much think our standards are the highest not the lowest I think our enforcements the best, but that doesn't make it perfect. You know as a user I actually don't remember seeing something that violated our policies and most people have not most people hear about it or it gets pulled into press and they see it now. I've certainly seen things I. Disagree with I have some family members whose political views I do not share. You know I have some ice stuff about fuck I disagree with. But in terms of my actual experience of seeing real hate yes I would pull I. Don't have a bat phone, but I would definitely take a screen shot in forwarded. Personally, referred infant I haven't had that experience or know how many people actually do see content that violates the rules is there a way to kind of measure that? Millions of people report content millions of not not all of it is actually violated with our standards but millions of people go through that process. In fact, we released our latest community standards enforcement report, and it gets to exactly what you're asking what that shows. Is All the different kinds of content we take down how much? How much violence? Were Nagasaki and it shows what percentage of it. We took down and found ourselves or someone reported to us. And that's where the progress on hate I think really becomes clear when we first did this report years ago, twenty, four percent of the hate we took down, we found ourselves which meant that seventy, six percent of the time someone had reported it to us. That's not a good experience. Our latest report we put out this week were at ninety, five, ninety, five percent of the hate that we take down we are finding before it's reported. That means five percent of what we take down is still being reported to us, which is still alive on facebook. So we have our work cut out for us, but clearly a significant improvement over twenty four percent just a few years ago and it to really the investments we've made in systems in AI in. Huge teams to monitor that's gotten us. There are your standards tough. Enough I mean that's something that we know is a sticky situation because everybody wants what they find to be offensive police in. As you said, sometimes it borders on my own bias is what I don't WanNa see. But when you look at the standards, where are you guys at particularly because they have in freshly criticized and there's rolling dialogue about whether whether you're going to get tougher? Where are we met? Her students are very tough but they're not as tough as some people would want them to be or they're not as comprehensive as some people would want them to be you know one person's opinion. One person's free expression could be another person's he. We work really hard on these definitions and were very public about the our entire standards are publicly out there including most to the material that the people who use inside their references that were very public about them. You know for the most part, we've always been a very protected society and the criticism has always been on both sides I'll give you an example that was very hot for a while was breastfeeding. We don't do pornography, we don't do breasts. In some parts of the world, a new woman who's naked from the top would be on the front page of every newspaper, and there are people that really believe in breastfeeding. It felt that we were suppressing their free speech because our computer systems were picking up any time. You saw a nipple of any kind even if it was a breastfeeding picture so we've worked more nuance there, but I think over the course of time, people have found us to be very strict on the standards. There are people out there that think are hit standards aren't strong enough. We are continually evaluating them continually making improvements. But I think a lot of people think our standards are too hard and so we try to be as transparent as possible. We try to evolve to meet ongoing things that are things. We'd never heard of no one ever heard of years ago. That are brand new movements that are hateful and there are things that some people find offensive that we do leave up because we think three expression in having that too is critically important in a lot of situations sodden. You're thinking on your role as an information broker during corona virus. How did that? I emerge and how did you deal with that at facebook given? All of the things that the most elite elite medical personnel don't know in yet. Here you are with the responsibility of not disseminating misinformation that may cost people's lives or fan pandemic. So our policy on misinformation is we don't take down we send it to third party fact checkers if it's marked as false or partially false, we dramatically decrease the distribution we market this has been marked false or partially falls and we linked to more information that often can tell the whole side of the story. Even, before Corona virus, we had an exception to that, which is information that was going to cause imminent harm and that policy really came out of other parts of the world. Misinformation was leading to death or imminent harm. The Corona virus we took the stand to things we said we're not going to have information that will lead to imminent harm. And we're going to rely on health experts. We are not decided there was no decision made by your marker anyone on our team. This is true about coronavirus and this is not because we're not experts but we partnered from the beginning with local health authorities the CDC the. H. Show the you know the health ministers in different countries to make sure that we were taking down misinformation. No matter who posted it up would also give very accurate information out and I think sometimes in these discussions, we forget that there are two sides. Of course, we need to take down at least marcus false things that are harmful, but we also have to use our services. To, get out the information people need. So governments like the UK, government local governments when they needed to get messages to their citizens, they've turned on us and we've been I think a very effective way of getting messages out. Interested. In in several high profile advertisers including some that I shot from it said, we're gonNA take a break and it wasn't just facebook it with social media have companies come back and what what are those conversations and like I know. The effect on the bottom line may not be what well understood you do rely. So heavily on smaller and middle sized companies for revenue but but it was a huge moment, a big headline where where are you guys at conversations are they back? So advertisers are starting to come back not but a good number are coming back have come back in process. Look those conversations were really hard John because normally. If someone is boycotting you or is protesting you want you to do a whatever a is in. You don't want to do it. That's not the case at all here the boycotters and the advertisers didn't want hate on facebook and we don't want this book Sosa. I think we had completely aligned goals and we have challenges in enforcing that. So again, we just released our enforcement report. We were at eighty nine percent of finding hate we take down ourselves. Now we're up to ninety five. That's an improvement and we know we have we have further to go. We also do have some notice agreement with people on what hate is we tend to take a broader swath of allowing some information that we think it's free expression to stay on so that people can have dialogue but in terms of hate, I think the real issue is that there's a fundamental misunderstanding of our service out there that we need to do a better job correcting we don't want. Hey. We don't benefit from hey, we don't profit from hey users don't want to see it. Consumers don't WANNA. See it. Advertisers don't want to be next to it. So the the narrative of facebook is leaving pay because they WANNA profit for. That's just just you talked about voters earlier and the initiatives that you're putting your proactively being part of a solution is what I hear you saying. But Marquez said very recently with this electric this unprecedented situation and I'm I'm guessing given your. Your half glass full mentality it's an opportunity but what's at stake here for facebook I? Mean we're all GonNa Blaine facebook if things go wrong and a certain candidate decides to use the platform and you're not taking down information with speed or at all is it a noble no-win situation here or what's at stake for this platforms ability to prove its productive place in this discussion? So we all know that there's a lot at stake for the selection full stop. There's more concern in confusion about how to register to vote what is valid I think there's more concern around misinformation around any kind of coordinated attacks. I think we're going into this election in a totally different place than twenty sixteen and interestingly, I think our track record in twenty eighteen was actually fairly good when people talk about things facebook missed in an election getting upset at us for things that are almost always talking about twenty sixteen you almost never hear about twenty eighteen and there have been hundreds of elections around the world and to look our job is to get people accurate information to be proactive. We are being much more proactive around. Pushing out information in this election and we have or have been before, and that is modeled on what we did with Toronto virus. We are taking that approach doing everything to get rid of the bad. We are doing everything to get in front of people the accurate information as well. And then we want to make sure that people can use the prop. One thing that's worth really thinking about is how many small people small people running for smaller offices. Are Using our platform provisionally when we're in social distancing and can't campaign. That's right. So how do you advertise to? No one's ever heard of me. I'm running for State Senate or I'm running for school board and I want to do it cheaply and efficiently we allow that to happen and we're proud of that role replied. There are you prepared I mean thinking about four more years of questions regarding how quickly you should be policing the president and his tweets given the thus far has a track record that trump is definitely more aggressive with platform Vice President Biden ever has been he trump wins. You're already in a in a in a situation where you guys are have been accused of dragging your feet on or taking a less aggressive stance against him. How do you think about that in a world where we might see four more years of that? It's our. It's our job to have clear and consistent rules. That, we apply in a fair way globally and I know we are very focused that we should be very focused on this election. There are important elections all over the world with people on different sides, and so we have experienced not just in the US cycle, but obviously the hundreds of elections that have happened since since last US cycle and we do we. Get accused from conservatives of being anti-conservative. They look it. Awesome. A see liberal silicon, Valley company I mean, I've been very affiliated Democrat. I remain unaffiliated Democrat other people look at us and they say we're not going far enough and our answer is going to be very clear about what our rules are and working apply them as even handed away as possible we also. Recognize that there should be limits to our power to decide what stays up in. Probably one of the most important things that's going to happen in the upcoming twelve months is the rollout of our content for which we've announced but has not yet come together to play. So for the first time, there's GonNa be a possibility that if you either have something taken down. And you think that's unfair or you take it down or you WanNa leave up in either direction, you can appeal it to the content board in your case much like the court right they'll have more than they can but they'll try to hear the big months. Someone else will decide and that board is independent does not report to mark does not report to me. Were also working with governments around the world. We think government has a very big role to play. Wouldn't it be good if governments to find hate rather than private companies would you be good if governments defined what is a political ad? Not Private companies were working hard to make sure that there are checks and balances and that the government's role is really important not just here around the world. You're not just the Democrat I mean you're you're a friend of the president presidential candidate on the Democratic ticket at an I I don't know the. Friendship, but definitely, it's been noted that the two of you have relationship you've been support I'm wondering if you're kind of jaw drops a little bit about the delicate role that you need to play his business leader given facebook's place in society if you're running Ben and Jerry's, which is much smaller if you're running. Patagonia. If you were running for Motor Company, you probably feel a little bit more free an mistaken to be supportive and to give the porch that you want to feel it all that your your ability to help is checked by your role I mean, my day job is facebook and my nights on Facebook, and then you know I work on my foundation as well, and so it is not my job to be very active in the political process and I've chosen a career that keeps me in business. So I don't wake up in the morning. You know what should I be doing politics 'cause I wake up in the morning with a very big job for facebook I. think that's consistent with business leaders. You know as a woman and as a woman who's long fought for the role of women to have more to celebrate ambition to celebrate what we're reaching for the highest office I'm thrilled to see a woman about to be nominated a woman of color about to be nominated and I spoke out anatomy horse I would do. Of course, I would do that and my foundation has done that as well. Do need to think twice about how supportive I mean it it's not a heavy lifting to be supportive publicly. Meaning you don't have to put in a lot of hours, but like running a news organization, I mean it kind of is a proxy for what facebook has become what we think of as a neutral platform even well, I've said, we're GONNA work with anyone who wins for us. So when I'm asked when you work with trump, if he wins the election, will you work with Biden if he sorry president trump if he wins the election we work with Vice, President Biden. Of course, we don't get to pick. Citizens elect their governments and we work with them, and we work with all over the world and we have to be willing and able to do that. Would you work for President Biden if there was a president Biden, you know I have a long decided I had my time. I worked at the Treasury Department under President Clinton and it was an amazing opportunity. What about the open seat in California right now not interested at all I mean. I really love my job and I really have so much respect for mark and my colleagues. Every day is not easy I don't expect anyone feel sorry for me or any of us we have great opportunities big role to play. We have serious responsibility to get this election right? We have serious responsibility to get hate and you know misogyny off the platform. against, wake up every business, I feel lucky to have this opportunity and I feel lucky to work for someone who is strong and has such conditions as mark. Are you having a guest one final question is the enormity of that task of getting it right. Your back and forth about what that looks like all day. But getting it right as a business challenge. Also, when I say this, I wonder if you are amazed at the trajectory of the importance of this as a public trust, almost as a is an institution and we aren't just considering a business but has a responsibility to society. Is there one? That outweighs the other giving you have shareholders, others, or is there is there a way to balance those two things at the same time? These things that people think are in conflict sometimes, but I really don't think they are we need people to trust our service we need people to trust that we're GONNA make content decisions not for profit on either side. But for the right for the right reasons and to doing the things that need our responsibility to protect elections takedown hit, they don't trade off against the business. They're important to drive the business. Now, there is a resource tradeoff rehiring engineer. We can put them on an ad program to build rags ads we can put them on safety we can put them on security. Of course, we have resource trade-offs, research trips of my time reserves tradeoffs mark if you look at how do our jobs and you compare it to for years ago, Mark Myself All of our senior leaders Chris Cox who just came back. Incredible. Chief Product Officer Mike Shrimp for our incredible. CTO We all spend a lot more of our time on the protection of the community. Then we did five years ago but I think that is super important and for a while we were playing catch up and I think all of these things work together. There's not a trade offs. We have to absolutely meet our responsibility and build our business and without meeting our responsibility, we're not going to build Turkishness. Kyi No your plane to grab people from. What you go Thank you for your time. It's always nice talking to and. Until next up. On.
Why Andy Samberg Decided To Star In A Romcom With Palm Springs
"Sandberg's not really known as a Ram Calm Guy, most of his movies have been in the wackier side fact, he's actually been offered quite a few Rom coms over the years, but always turn them down. He decided to give it a go with his new movie Palm Springs. So what gave him the chain heart? He tells Indi wire, the script caught me off guard multiple times as I started reading it. I do enjoy traditional Rom coms, but this movie was one I could finally envision myself doing not embarrassed by my performance up and incorporating a lot of elements I. Love
Summer Movies 2020: What to Stream, What's Delayed
"Pandemic has totally thrown summer movie season for a loop. Lots of movies are going straight to streaming. Judd apoptosis and our Shirley's the roads and our welfare, but which streaming movies are really worth your time. And what will the pandemic mean for the film industry, and are we ever actually going to see tenant? The Big Budget Christopher Nolan Sci fi flick scheduled to come out in August. Will we ever see that on the big screen where it is meant to be seen? Well the answer to that question may actually be never. We just found out. That film has been delayed indefinitely, but there's still a lot more to discuss and here to talk us through it. Is Eliana Dr Men? She writes about movies and pop culture and Feminism for time Eliana. Hi, hi, how's it going good? How are you? Good holding up. So I think my first question just has to be like. Is there a summer blockbuster season this year? What happened? Yeah, I feel like saying. There's no summer blockbuster. Season is a little road to the movies that have come out on Vod vod meaning video demand, because a lot of stuff is just going straight to streaming racked. Yes, the things that are going straight to streaming which there have been some good things. But this certainly has not had the momentous feel of a usual summer where I convince my closest friends to go spend a ridiculous money to go see a movie in amax because it's summer and that's what you do. That is not happening. Hollywood has been a little circumspect about that. Keep moving movies that they insist have to count in theaters with good reason for some of 'em a movie like ten it would be much less fun to watch for the first time at home, but they keep sort of delaying it by two week increments, and delaying delaying delaying and I suspect that those delays will go into twenty twenty want, but we'll see. Yet kind of reminds me of early on in pandemic times it was probably like late maybe mid late February, when I found out that the the new James Bond movie was being delayed. Because that was supposed to come out in April. And they decided they moved it to like November. But I remember it was one of the first moment sitting at work when I saw the news where I was like. Oh. This pandemic is real. Yeah that was at the time I remember. Having discussions internally at time and just thinking personally. It's crazy that they're big to November. Why would they be November now? They look like geniuses because they sort of as this has continued to happen. All of these movies are rushing to find different dates, and I've sort of compared. You know finding the right movie release date to picking perfect wedding date. You don't want overlap with another big release that would. Not all the guests are going to come. And you also want to find a weekend when you know. A lot of people are free, so holiday weekends are always big Christmas thanksgiving Labor Day that sort of thing, so there's been just this total crush of movies. Where right now if things go the way that they are currently planned? We're just going to have a million movies released in November and December I. Don't think that that will actually happen, but they sort of James Bond beat everyone to the punch by claiming that date early. Right naming you know here. We are coming up on August. August like who knows what November's even GonNa. Look like yeah, exactly so I do think that most of those movies will probably move to twenty twenty one as well who knows, but it's sort of worst on such an ad hoc basis with all of this right now that I think the studios are also concerned and confused of course, so yeah, obviously you can't tell the future, but I do wonder like. Do you have a sense? You know you say? Probably? A million movies are gonNA drop in November December early. That's kind of the planet this point. is they're then going to be just like a huge drop off because of the stuff that should have been produced over the course of this year. That wasn't able to be because of the pandemic. I don't think we'll actually see that. Drop off until twenty twenty two because a lot of big movies that were supposed to come out this year like I remember another big kind of moment of this pandemic was real is when fast and furious nine moved from a spring of twenty, trying to spring of two thousand, twenty one, which also it doesn't the one that's taking place on Mars or something I think that the rumor is that they. I think that the actual poll of this. Is that this character Han? Who is very unjustly killed off a few movies ago, Mac so there's a whole justice for Han. A whole separate on my fast furious. Good to know. Just in case you're looking for. You on the list. So a lot of those movies have waited a full year. The top gun movie was delayed till Christmas. I think actually, but there are few other movies that have been delay pushed it back a full year. Yeah, push back a full year, so I think we will still get a crowded summer twenty twenty. One I think that we're really going to see the impact. In Twenty, twenty two where the delays in filming movies are are actually going to sort of manifest and that will be very strange. That's really interesting. So you say you don't want to do a disservice to the movies that have come out this summer that have gone straight to streaming services. What do you think are some the standouts that people shouldn't miss so I? Think that a few things have come out that have been great and entertaining, one big standout and profit by saying a lot of these movies are going to be on Netflix. Because Netflix was just more prepared for this than anybody else. WHO Like match? A four site that a pandemic was going to happen, but just by virtue of they drop a new movie every week at this point and write them have to be good. I think. The five bloods, which is Spike Lee movie that dropped on that flicks on June twelfth, and is h front runner in the very weird Oscar season. We're GONNA. Have a mom so far is definitely a standout. I think that that's one that is well worth people's time especially because there are going to be so few kind of prestige, Oscar movies that I think come out the series. Well that if you want to turn Oscar Susan that that is the way to go, okay so that one stands out I mean Hamilton. I watched as soon as dropped and APPS as. Everyone else I talked to did and I think they did a really good job of translating that to screen. Obviously, there's some reconsideration of Hamilton right now and rate. How good of a job it does! reckoning with the racism of the time. But I do think that unlike a lot of sort of problematic properties that were dealing with the summer lamelo Miranda has sort of owned up in participated in that conversations would say watch it with a grain of salt, and then go right you an internet deep dive. Researcher Slavery. And Google Hamilton slavery and just set aside a few hours for that So I think that stands out, I also really loved Palm Springs I'll too I just saw over the weekend, and I thought it was delightful. It felt like. Again try not to shade net flicks too much, but palm springs is one of the first movies released in quarantine that felt like an actual movie to me. and this came on Hulu. It came out on Hulu. It was the biggest purchase out of Sundance ever how it was supposed to be released in theaters. It was very much treated as an indie movie, but a big indie movie randy's hamburger than most people know about these days right and lonely island Andy. Sandberg's group produced it There's some Hollywood power behind it, but it felt like a fully finished movie with. With, the quirks of actual writers, directors incorporated in there and character development whereas I dunno some of the net flicks movies can feel a little bit empty to me like there was a concept and not a lot of follow through So this palm springs stood out to me. Is One a good rom com, which are hard to come by these days in to like. It felt like I would go to theater and pay money to see this movie. Yeah, totally so those are those are sort of a few that have come out so far that definitely stand out to me. As being people's time one that I've been hearing a lot about speaking of net flicks. is the old guard. I haven't watched it yet. What do you recommend it? So I do I mean? The old guard is sorta falls into that category of doesn't feel quite like a complete would be released in theaters film. And I don't. I can put my finger quite on. Why except that? I think that you know the premise of the movie is that these immortal beings are basically you know. superheroes that are constantly saving the world. I would watch that. Yeah, it's definitely entertaining, and like it's Shirley stare on shortly surrounds Great Gina Prince would who directed love and basketball won't have the greatest films of all time. Directed this and I think she does a good job. I do wish that these immortal beings were a little more interesting like if they've lived for thousands of if they had lived for thousands of years, I wish they had. More interesting quirks more things to say about the state of the world. That's a fair critique. Nothing can be perfect. It's definitely a diverted way to spend a couple of hours, and you know well worth people's time if they are looking for bad action, movies, and and kind of not even bad like. This is terrible action movie, but just like not A. Junk food. Yes, junk food. That is the perfect word for it which I mean like. Maybe the bar is really low now. Anyway. Right because it's like if I'm not leaving my house. If I got nothing to do then why not eat some junk food? You know exactly and I think that the I think that Hollywood is scared that we're going to get so used to junk food that we're not going to want to spend a little extra money on not junk food. After this is all over and that will sort of accepts. This is movies now. The netflix version of movies that feels a little bad for me and lacking in a little substance is just going to be the state of the world, and we're not going to spend the extra money to for example, see Palm Springs in theaters or see you know the Irishman in theaters vs on Netflix. To use another sort of direct networks parallel right so. What you're saying, is that essentially like if we are getting used to a lower quality than than what is our incentive to WanNa like go to the theater and spend a bunch of money. An let alone the fact that we're also like sitting. You know theoretically at least shoulder to shoulder with strangers, which is not a thing that people are super interested in doing right now during a pandemic. What do you think is sort of like the future of the movie theater industry? Like are they just doomed? Yeah, it's really hard. I mean as someone who watches a lot of movies, both in my personal life, and for work I cannot wait to get back to the movie theater. Going experience and I do think that there is that sort of feeling that once it is safe. I would happily walk several miles to go. Sit in a big theater next to some co workers or friends. Friends and watch a movie like Ted I. Wait for that to happen I am not comfortable doing right now. Though I do think that it's going to be a question of timing, and how long movie theaters can survive financially until moment where we do feel comfortable all coming back and I think that there's this fantasy that a movie like tenant or a movie like move on. It's just GonNa stuff movie theaters right off the Bat and there's going to be a moment where we all decide. Yes, this is the weekend where it's safe again. where I'm excited about going to the movies and I WANNA. Go sit next to a bunch of strangers and have them. You know spill popcorn on me. I don't think that that I. think that. That's sort of this illusive fantasy I. Don't think that that's going to be the case I. Think it's going to be a very slow trickle. I don't think people are chomping at the bit to go to the movie theaters I do think that that is why studios have been holding back the. Most expensive contents for kind of lack of a better categorization. Is because they don't want to give us Moulana streaming at home, and then have us come to expect okay I'll just wait for Milan's come onstream. I think that they want to create the incentive to go to the movie theater because it is so essential to their business. Surviving I just think that you know that means we might have many more months of not so great content. So, you're saying that it's not only like AMC theaters who need movie theaters to exist, but also Hollywood itself. Yes Hollywood definitely need movie theater to exist I mean the reason that you can make a movie like tenant for hundreds of millions of dollars is because you make. Hundreds of millions of dollars back by selling movie theater tickets. There's just no way that they can make that on Vod. It's not possible, so we'll see how they strategize it going forward, but I think sort of takeaway from this is that Netflix was already fighting it into the Hollywood. Business an Hollywood was not prepared for it, and this is just accelerating the process. So you've mentioned tenant a couple times, this is the newest is it's Sifi right from Christopher Nolan. Yes, it's a new Christopher Nolan movie. The reason I keep mentioning Tenet is because Christopher Nolan. Or Warner brothers have styled tenant as sort of the movie that is going to save the summer blockbuster season. They keep talking about is the first big movie that's going to open the movie. That's going to draw people back to theaters movie. That's GonNa save movie theaters the movie that's going to save the concept of summer blockbuster the movie that's GonNa. Make us feel better again and. I mean that sounds great i. does sound great I mean in fairness them. It's a good movie to pick to pin that on. Because Christopher Nolan is one of if not the only director left who can drop a totally original film that has nothing to do with comic book series. A book is not marble is not DC, NI, and, but this is still one of those like big loud movies. That's like perfect for a movie like a theater going experience that right, yes, yeah heart of the appeal of a movie like ten is that you see it with a big group of people rate, and then will gasp at the same reveal exactly like some of my favorite summer. Summer movie moments are the moments where you know. Something crazy happens in everybody screams. Everybody laughs I think of I. Guess is two summers ago. When the last mission impossible became out and spoiler alert for the first half hour of the mission impossible movie, there's a moment where they are jumping out of an airplane. A character gets struck by lightning and funny in this amass the lost bear market. And as well as the greatest movie memories ever had because it was just this collaborative woman just happened. And those are the best. That's amazing. That's so good well, even though we have just learned that the ten release has been delayed indefinitely, I hope cautiously optimistic that that will. That will have that again someday soon, ish. I hope so too. And in the meantime there are things to watch at home They might not be the things that we were excited about several months ago. but there are things to watch at home, and after this kind of summer movie season is over frankly studios graft figure out what to do with their Oscar contents, and I would not be surprised if a lot of them just get released straight to streaming so that they can qualify for the Oscars this year. Wow, the Oscars, which have officially been postponed right, yes, the Oscars have officially been postponed, and they've also changed their rules, so that movies that are released to streaming can qualify which is a. Huge concession on their part Isis County will change the back afterwards, but it's been a big fight in Hollywood as to whether streaming movies can count for the Oscars in hopes of saving the movie theater, going experience, and so now streaming movies will qualify and I think that's going to change the calculus for a lot of studios that aren't necessarily trying to make big money movies that they are trying to win awards.

'Palm Springs' Romantic Comedy Is A Total Winner For The Lockdown Era
"Are film critic Justin. Chang says it could be an especially good time to watch palm springs, a romantic comedy about two people forced to repeat the same day. Over and over again it stars Andy Sandberg, and Kristen, Milly Odi it streaming on Hulu and playing in some drive in theaters around the country. Palm Springs a hot ticket at this year's Sundance Film Festival one of the last public events to take place before the movie industry shutdown. I didn't see it there, but having caught up with it months later at home I can't help but feel as though this breezily entertaining movie. Please a little differently in the era of covid nineteen. It's a comedy. About is the LATIAN repetition which might not sound too appealing at a time when many of us are also leading lives of isolation and repetition. But don't let that dissuade you. This first feature directed by Max barbeque cow, and written by Andy Sierra turns out to be a total winner, Sharp, funny, and even profound in a sneakily offhand way. The story is a riff on that Herald Ramos Classic Groundhog Day in which Bill Murray had to keep replaying the same day until he learned to become a selfless person, but palm springs is trying to push that message. It knows that just getting through life with your dignity intact can be hard enough. That's certainly true for Sarah played by Kristen me not who's serving as maid of honor in her sister's wedding in the California desert town of Palm Springs. S Sarah Drinks too much and stumbles her way through the reception. She finds herself intrigued by one of the Guests Niles played by Andy, Sandberg. Niles is kind of a goofball, but also manages to work the room with disarming ease. It's almost as if he's been through this event before and knows everything that's going to happen. Sarah finds out why when she follows him that night into a mysterious cave out in the desert. Within seconds she's waking up the next morning only to find that. It's actually the same morning as before the morning of the wedding. Time has reset itself. In a panic Sarah Trucks Down Niles at the hotel where they're staying. He explains that when she entered the cave, she made a big mistake because he followed me. What's going on? I tried to stop. But, what is this? When is this? Yeah. About that so. This is today. Today is yesterday and tomorrow is also today. It's one of. Infinite time loop situations you might have heard about. That I might have heard about. There's been a lot of those infinite time loop situations in recent movies and TV. Some of them excellent like the Tom. Cruise Action Thriller Edge of tomorrow in the NETFLIX's mystery series. Russian doll. The pop savvy makers of Palm Springs clearly no those stories and suspect that you might know them to. As a result, they're able to jettison a lot of the usual exposition about how this world works and simply cut to the chase. Sarah is eager to bust out of the time loop but Niles. WHO's been stuck here for ages tries to dissuade her. Virtuous acts won't work. Suicide won't work although that doesn't Stop Sarah driving straight into the path of an oncoming truck just to see what happens. Eventually Niles persuades her to stop fighting the space time continuum, and just enjoy their time together, and so she does with the threat of permanent removed. These two misfits are suddenly free to embrace the craziness of every moment. Sometimes, they blow off the wedding to go on long desert drives and hang out in bars. Sometimes they stick around for the wedding, so they can play tricks on the guests. WHO WON'T REMEMBER ANYTHING ANYWAY? The guests are played by fine actors. Including Peter Gallagher June squibb and Meredith Hagner. J. K. Simmons also gives a terrific wildcard performance as a guy who POPs up at the wedding on Sundays, but not others for reasons that the story will soon make amusingly clear. As fiendishly clever, as it is on the surface, palm springs has a pretty straightforward takeaway, since life can sometimes be pointless and tedious whether you're stuck in a time loop or not, you might as well spend it with someone you love. It's pretty good advice. Even Still Sarah doesn't know how much longer she can stand being trapped in this desert purgatory, especially since Niles seem so lazily resigned as fate. I won't give away whether they succeed in escaping or not I will say that the movie doesn't entirely avoid a tired gender dynamic in which a smart determined woman has to expend a lot of emotional and mental energy, and just to get her boyfriend to WanNa move forward. But I love the way the actors conspired subvert that Dynamic Sandberg isn't that's Hilarious as he was in the Music Biz? Satire pop star never stopped never stopping, but he does have the whole. Doofus slacker routine down Pat. But, he's eclipsed by Milly Ot, a versatile performer who won a grammy for the Broadway musical once, and who can turn from madcap comedy to breathtaking emotion on a dime. I'd watch her. Any Day. Justin Chang is a film critic at the L. A. Times.

Sheryl Sandberg Interview
"Tonight on next chapter I'm in silicon. Valley for a power lunch with facebook's co-pilot. We discuss her famous boss, the myth of having it all, and how in the world? She juggles the demand of one billion facebook, users. Don't tell me that Donna Karen. Donna care. That really. Got Him so glad that would be an honor. To. Have you hear. So excited to be here. The Fleas Street cafe is a Silicon Valley Institution. This is where Cheryl and Mark Zuckerberg. I met to discuss the possibility of her joining facebook. Their partnership is now one of the most well known in business history. These are unbelievable. That's how you that's how you get me. Start with the biscuits, so you can't have a biscuit when it's torn now. You have to do that, so we're here at the flea. Street cafe. Welcome nice to have you in California again your neighborhood, my neighborhood I live around the corner. And you came here for your very first meeting, or shall we call it date way Mark Zuckerberg it was, and it did. It was date like in the sense that you're nervous. Yes, it's a dinner. You're getting to know each other, but we had our dinner I very i. only dinner we ever. Weren't were in public together until we announced I was coming to facebook, obviously went, will well yes well. We actually stayed so late. The restaurant was kind of closing down. We wanted to keep talking. That's a good one ten o'clock at night way past my bedtime, but he clearly wanted to keep talking and he was mark Zuckerberg so I said well. It's WANNA come over, so we came over and around midnight I had to say like time to go time to go. My kids are getting up at five hours, so we're GONNA have to. Was the process like like dating? Though was it like a court courtship trying to figure out whether work, or did you know after that first meeting that it's on? I knew after that first meaning how warm he was, and how nice he was, and how much he cared about facebook, but it was definitely a process of getting to know each other when you first started the job. Will you staying up late at night? Worrying about the pressures that you earned, did it keep you up at night? Yeah, yeah, it did and the pressures I was under to make facebook what it needed to be wooden mark and I get along. Would we have the relationship? We'd need to have very unique relationship where he runs the company I run part of the company working for him. We really need to trust each other. You know he was fifteen years younger than I was. When I was interviewing with him one night, we were supposed to talk and it was like. Nine o'clock at night, and he called, and he said well I'll just call you later and I said well. Let me go to sleep in about thirty minutes, so if you know if you're still at your dinner, we'll talk tomorrow. He calls the next day. It's like. Are you okay like yeah? I'm fine. He's had sick. So number wasn't sick. You said you went to bed at nine thirty. and. I said I wasn't. You know what I do. I go to bed at nine thirty and so I definitely had this fear. That I was going to be too old. Not Understand what he was doing enough, and it was scary at first at first I so you have now written what I have to say. The modern manifesto for women in the workplace, and you call it lean in because. They gotTA lean in. We gotTA leaning. We gotta we courage girls, and you've done this in your own life. Look what you've done with your school. We've got to encourage girls to lead so women have made tons of progress. You look at the opportunities. My mother had my grandmother had. But, we have a really small percentage of the top jobs in any industry in any nation in the world. There are very few Oprah Winfrey's. There are very women who will the kind of influence and have the kind of opportunities you have. Sheryl's new book is a must read for women and men. It's a smart, honest, deeply personal exploration of Cheryl's mission. She wants women to pull their chair up to the table. It starts with a healthy dose of reality. You've said there's no such thing as work life balance. Why? Why is there no work life balance? I think all of these phrases people throw it. Women are so harmful. Having I've I having. You all the time. Heidi you it oh. Yeah, yeah! The worst, no matter how much we all have, and how grateful we are for what we have, no one has it all because we all make trade offs every single day every single minute work life balance. No one ever asks. Have having it all for second because I love it because I don't think you can, you can have it all I feel like I do, but you can't have it all at the same time. That's right and what's happened. If you compare like my generation to my mother's generation, my mother says this all the time and her generation work nine to five Monday to Friday forty hours. No one expected anything else. and. Parenting was actually much more constrained. What's happened now? We are all connected? My indices part of the problem, right? We are connected all the time. We expect our workers, our our colleagues at work to be able and the amount of time mothers spend one on one in that direct child thing with their kids. It's totally changed. My Mother didn't organize play dates. We wrote our bikes. Dates she wasn't with me, you know. My Mother didn't sit there with all my homework. She helped me when I asked. Checked in every so often work has changed and made it more intense and parenting has changed and become more intense and I'm not judging those things they might be bad. They might be good. They make it harder and harder for working women and almost all women in this country. Are, working women and almost all kids are being raised by two or one parent who is in the workforce.

Facebook Helps Entrepreneurs Move Their Shops Online -- for Free
"From wondering. I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Monday. May Twenty Fifth Happy Memorial Day last week. Facebook made a big announcement for small business. Owners entrepreneurs will soon be able to create virtual storefronts on facebook and instagram using a new feature called facebook shops. The idea facebook. Ceo Sheryl Sandberg says is to help all small businesses but especially the struggling ones according to a recent survey conducted by facebook and the Small Business Roundtable one third of all small businesses in the US have already closed their doors. Another eleven percent say they will fail. Should the economy remain mostly closed for much longer giving continuing social distancing and stay at home orders? Transitioning to online sales may be the only path forward for most smaller companies in its livestream announcement facebook. Ceo Mark Zuckerberg said. We're seeing a lot of small businesses get online for the first time but moving online and especially to mobile friendly. Commerce isn't always easy. The process can be expensive and complicated but facebook. Says it wants to help entrepreneurs solve those problems therefore setting up a new storefront on shops will be free and Sandberg claims. It's easy to. She says it'll only take minutes. The new storefronts are intended to allow merchants. Not just to show their wares but to conduct transactions as well a business owner who is linked. Her existing website to facebook shop will be able to take payment on her website. Alternatively she'll be able to check out customers right on facebook or instagram for a small fee to help users. Simplify what can be complicated back in mechanics. Facebook is partnering with Shop Afyon and other ECOMMERCE engines shop which is based in Canada as well known as the merchant platform for millions of small online businesses behind the scenes. The story that facebook is telling that it's here to help is not surprisingly more nuanced. The new shops feature represents facebook wholehearted foray into commerce with brick and mortar stores restaurants closed online sales of sword and facebook. Once in Zuckerberg told the Financial Times at facebook shops had already been under development. The company sped up its launch to take advantage of the spike in online shopping observers. Say The new feature pits facebook against Amazon and ebay based books partnership with shop of. I should help as we reported right here just a couple of months ago shop. If is aggressively competing with Amazon last year at began investing five billion dollars. Over five years to build a nationwide fulfillment network VAT network is intended to help. American merchants offered two day shipping all over the country. You know just like Amazon and that could be an answer to one problem savvy. Merchants will ask about selling directly from facebook and INSTAGRAM. Who'LL SHIT MY products? Facebook won't but shop if I and other logistics partners will Voila problem solved but let's not forget another albeit smaller. Ecommerce rival Oetzi. The company has made it easy for Solo artists and small companies to build online stores from their bedrooms and Kitchens Oetzi. Share price is up ninety percent this year. According to The Wall Street Journal and REVENUES IN THE FIRST QUARTER. Were double what they were three years ago. The paper reported at sees Growth Spike. Especially during the lockdowns has made one thing extremely clear. Just how many millions of soloists are interested in and capable of starting successful businesses online even if facebook is late to this war for online customers. The company has one significant weapon that Amazon Ebay. Oetzi don't have two point six billion monthly users. It's intuitive to see how shops owners will be able to leverage their facebook and instagram followers to boost sales on shops. According to the verge shops will be found on facebook pages or instagram profiles. Dunkelberg says merchants will also be able to let customers. Virtually try on products like sunglasses and makeup by using reality tools. According to the Wall Street Journal so facebook is giving shops away for free. How will it make money while the answer is simple? Advertising Sheryl Sandberg Toll Madman Jim Cramer that one hundred sixty million small business owners already used facebook's free business tools eight million of them already purchased. Facebook ADS Zuckerberg assumes that if facebook shops owners find the storefronts valuable. They'll want to bid more to buy facebook ads according to NPR. That's where the quote real money will come from. According to the Motley fool too many facebook shops is
Hollywood Studios Halt Film And TV Production
"All production shutdown in Hollywood so for the people who are supposed to be working including those with contracts. The question now is will they get paid agents? Managers and lawyers are trying to figure that out but as the global pandemic continues to take us into uncharted territory. Answers might be difficult brin. Sandberg is a senior writer at the Hollywood reporter and she's been looking into what the covert nineteen shutdown means for people who work in the entertainment Industry Bryn. Welcome back to the show. Hi John Thanks for having me so. Let's first talk about a legal term. It's called force majeure and as I understand it. It essentially relates to unforeseeable circumstances that prevent a contract from being enforced. How might it apply here? Well John that definitely applies here when we typically see force majeure events. It's it's in relation to Labor strikes. Which is what happened in the two thousand seven to two thousand eight writers strike or is related to a natural disaster like a wild fire or an earthquake but those are usually local so the fact that this is a a global pandemic. It means that it's triggering simultaneous industry-wide shutdowns that kind of force majeure event is sort of without precedent in Hollywood. So a couple of weeks ago. Was that something that companies were really thinking about that. It gave them the option of shutting down a production and not having to worry about being on the hook to pay people. Yeah I think these studios of course know that they have this power if you will In in an event like this and there was a period of time where You know I think people didn't know was it? Was it safe to be around people? Could we stay in production and so and then when it became increasingly clear that that wasn't going to be safe that's of course when when the studios started taking these steps to suspend and again they? A lot of them will reassess. I know Netflix. For example there shutdowns where they said for two weeks before though you know reconsider and so when that when that two week. Marquette's will we'll start to see what some of these two years are going to do with their major projects. How long they can keep them on. Hold and how we all move forward. Does that mean that for some companies. During that two week window they are continuing to pay their cast and crew. And then they'll reassess that decision right so this is this is the interesting question. And this is what of course many actors writers directors producers. You know they all want to know. Okay what about my pay? My still going to get paid during this time. And that's really a big question mark. I spoke with a lot of these. These wraps managers agents lawyers and it seems like in a force majeure event like this. The studio's really like I said they have a tremendous amount of latitude and they do not necessarily have to fulfil contracts but that being said it doesn't mean that That certain companies are not still paying people. So you know. Nbc suspended SNL for the next three shows but they've still committed to paying their employees for those three weeks as though they were working Netflix as well on NBC Universal. You know I heard where we're continuing to pay some of their crew that we're going to be working on those shows for these two weeks during the shutdown so once that period of time is up and these companies do reassess And should they hold these productions indefinitely then it becomes much less likely that they will continue pay people and hold people in their contracts. We're talking with Brin Sandberg a senior writer at the Hollywood reporter about pay during production shutdowns. One of the things that's critical. I think to a lot of people. In the business they are essentially freelancers. Their GIG WORKERS. They have sporadic work. And if they're laid off for a long period of time they might not qualify for unemployment or health insurance. Have there been conversations about how those people might be protected. Even on a federal level there have been calls for you know the government to step in and help given how unprecedented this you know. The situation is I do not know that there's been any resolution yet or any consensus about what is going to happen. I think we're in this murky period of time where we're waiting to see what does happen on top of all of this. There are labor negotiations and contracts. That were happening before. The Corona Virus Pandemic the alliance of Motion Picture and television producers was starting talks with the Writers Guild of America. How might collective bargaining be affected by all of this and might actually benefit one side on the bargaining table? That's a great question. This is a this is a subject that came up a lot when I was talking to these wraps because you know this has been their life for really the past year because the writers have fired their their agents. And then we're about to enter these contract negotiations with the studios. One lawyer told me that you know it now feels like all the time that we spent talking about the wgn in the in the potential strike issues was just rearranging deckchairs on the titanic. You know it's now put into this This whole other perspective and and really it's depending on who you talk to. You will hear different things about who might benefit from this. The most in terms of those those negotiations some managers lawyers and agents will say you know. The writers have less leverage now. Because what are they gonNA go on on strike about and then you have talked to writers you said? I think this helps us. Because any plans that studios had to rush development script production you know before the May deadline which is what they were doing to prepare themselves. If a writer strike were to happen you know those. Those plans have been shattered and now they need writers. You know working more than ever to to create content and so In terms of you know win the actual contract negotiations will happen now That's another big question mark because they were supposed to kick off those talks officially on March twenty third Which is Monday and it seems unlikely that that's going to to move forward on that date now.
Top Five Mark Wahlberg Movies: Say Hi to Your Mother for Us | The Big Picture
"Unfortunately this Shithole has more fucking leaks in the Iraqi navy. Fuck Yourself. I'm tired from fucking your wife. How's your mother good? She's tired from fucking my father. You have a job Tom. I'm a firefighter. Oh God bless you a hero. I'm not hero. We'd all be here. We could use the petroleum. No excuse me Christmas. Utah a lot of fucking money. What did you do? I mean if you take away nothing else for my class from this experience let it be this. If you're not a genius don't bother right. The world needs plenty of electricity and a lot of them are happy and they can help. It really can't be that we can always do. Better let me keep trying. If you guys keep trying I'm shawn fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about Mark Wahlberg. This episode may break the all time record for big picture dissonance later in the show. I have an interview with Kelly. Reichardt the writer and director behind independent film classics. Like old joy. Meek's cutoff in the new film. First cow which might be the best movie of Two Thousand Twenty so far. I hope you'll stick around for that but I were joined by the frog. Sheriff Chris Ryan. I heard that Mark. Wahlberg actually dropped out of first cow. He was gonNA play the cow Alao. But you're already doing animal. Humor here on driver too is calling. Chris. You're here because you're a fan of Mark Wahlberg work. He's The star of a new movie. That is hitting Netflix. This Friday called Spencer confidential. I think gets his fifth film with Peterberg. The actor turned director of such films as lone survivor and deepwater horizon. This is a very strange movie but I think it's going to be a a very watched movie because the corona virus is scaring America into staying inside their house. And so I think that there's a potential for a lot of viewership of this movie. So we're talking about Mark Wahlberg one of the most resilient and persistent movie stars. I guess of the past twenty five years so let's just start with WHO is Mark Wahlberg. How did this happen? That Mark Wahlberg became one of the signature figures of movies in the twenty first century. I would not say I'm a fan of Mark Wahlberg as like I'm a I'm agnostic as a citizen. Yeah I would say that. I am very interested in the way that he has conducted his career. Which is kind of a weird throwback to a studio systems our he makes three to four movies every eighteen months somehow and just releases them at like a hugely prolific rate at. I'm fascinated by all the little pockets of his career that he has created where he repeats. You know he goes back to these little micro genres that he and he works a lot of people over and over again by the way he kind of has conducted his career to me is almost unique among Hollywood movie stars anymore. I mean most of the time when people achieve a certain level success. They just like see in three years for my next blockbuster or award fodder and he's just like nope. I'm grinding out. Family movie violent action film and then every once in a while Raunchy comedy and it's just like pretty pretty like unique among all Hollywood stars so I'm fascinated. What do you make them Amanda? I was fascinated when going back to you. Remember how many great directors he's worked with and how many actually excellent movies he's been in. Chris was asking me how much we watching I had to do for this podcast and the answer is a lot. Because I wouldn't say that Mark Wahlberg stays with me besides certain shots that will certainly be discussed on this podcast but he especially I guess in the first decade of this century just goes on a tremendous run. I really from Boogie nights on and works with a does a lot of really great movies and then kind of decides to just become like the Peterberg comedy guy in the second decade of the century. And I it's a really interesting shift. He just Kinda decides no. I'm going to do this now. And it's very fascinating to me I can't really make sense of. I also is Christmas talking about his efficiency. Just pulled up his daily schedule. Do you guys remember the days? Will he wakes up. Like four o'clock in the morning posted this on his own instagram typical daily scheduled to thirty. Am Wake Up. What don't you forty five prayer time. Three fifteen am breakfast. There's a lot of work work. He's golfing from seven thirty to eight. Which is the golf people? And there's a chamber recovery at nine thirty that takes more time than golf workout number two lunches and our so our meeting slash work calls also an hour and he goes to bed at seven thirty PM and which in Los Angeles for. I'd say six at least six months of the year. That is still broad daylight. Yeah Yeah Su. There is real efficiency baked into this. He's clearly very deliberate guy. He's making choices. And I think that pertains to his daily life and also his his career. There is clearly thought going into this. It's not a type of thought. I can access. I still don't know why you would wake up at two thirty and I don't know why you would do like five deep water horizons. There's a rumor that he has a routine. I think you. I'm speculating here. But I think he's a member of Wilshire Country Club here in Los Angeles. My husband told me this last night and he likes to play alone. He likes to play. And that's why he's playing so early in the morning and he's trying to get in like a quick nine or quick eighteen. I don't know five days a week which I'm who among? Us would love to do that if I could wake up before five. Am I would do it. I'll tell you I would love to do that. I'll tell you something else I am. I find golf to be social and I get crippled like when I play by myself. I'm like all the neurosis is creeping like. Should I take another shot now like it really playing golf? If you're not playing with anyone can just tell you. He's got three snacks on the schedule. Including one that takes an hour and a half from eight to nine thirty. Am is snack after seven. Thirty to eight am golf. Probably a euphemism. Oh Okay so you think. His sessions are ninety minutes. So you're saying to jump off something. Amanda said You know who? He reminds me of a bizarre way Cruz. Where it's like that run. Where cruises like I'll just work with Barry Levinson Stanley Kubrick and Steven Spielberg and every great director at it seems like I'm just the most important factor in the whole world and then one day he wakes up and says I'M GONNA make action movies for the rest of my life? It's very unlikely though. I mean his origins restraints obviously member of this very well known family. He's from Massachusetts. He starts out as a a rap artist and ultimately becomes a Calvin Klein M. C. An. Mc Yes we watched the vibrations video. Recently I took my top five twenty two. Would you make of good vibrations? And and how did you feel about the funky bunch all these years later? It's just really bizarre that this was a thing that we lived through. Who is the funky bunch? I I still don't know who's in it. Were you in a Chris? Thought it was the backup dancers. I mean yes. That's who they were but like do you know anything about them and where they are now. I was pretty. Yeah I was pretty. I was pretty authentic back then so I was. I was already listening to deep deep newer. Grab I love talking about the early nineties with you. Can we talk about the Calvin Klein ads for a second really really important? You're almost put these on my list. And it's and my honorable mention boxer briefs. Yeah I was still a boxer sky back then that was not interested in the product. Would you just tear the ads out of the magazine? Crumpled them up and throw them in the garbage. I think that the those are the signature moment in his career without the advertising campaign he would not have become weirdly Tom Like sub Tom Cruise but he you know. He soared to a of fame on that ad campaign. They're just extremely important. Ninety s imagery obviously came as also in them. And that's where the whole K. Moss thing starts Them Hating each other. Great early celebrity feud they're very important that's all and also it looks great. I mean he and his image was of basically like a tough guy with a bad attitude whether that was true or not he obviously got into some altercations and his his personal history is pretty complicated. We're not gonNA spend too much time talking about on this show. But I think that he basically leveraged his complicated persona in the public into a movie career and if you look at the first few movies that he makes replays these kind of like weird intimidating Undeveloped YOUNG MEN. You know in the basketball diaries in. Ryen Russillo favorite movie fear And even in boogie nights. There's something like violently adolescent about his his persona which is very different from the kind of actor and movie star that he is right now so a lot of times. I think that we could. You could write like a series of essays about how much actors of his generation have attempted to mimic the kind of like rough and tumble blue collar upbringing. That Walberg apparently had like how how often like DiCaprio Damon or these guys have tried to be like no I'm Jim Carroll and he's just a function Carol I'm the real thing but it's weird like even in his authenticity. If you WANNA call it that he still lacks like any kind of emotional intelligence or psychological depth to portraying those things and you could write all these essays. But you could just watch the departed. Because that's what this does that. Do you need that from an actor? Do you need to feel like this person is like in control and has that depth that Chris was talking about? I think I do ultimately. I think that there is a reason that I gravitate to Matt Damon instead of Wahlberg. And I think that you not just because of the departed and the Boston. Bill will talk about that a lot as a comparison but I like I said I really remember a lot of Walberg performances. Even though he's been given a lot of great ones and I think that's because they have a I don't WanNa say surface level. That's unfair. They're actually a lot of depth but they aren't the emotional depths and I think I personally don't hang onto those. I think I'm always wondering how in command of the Ark of his career. He is because you pointed out he makes he's. I mean he's just been a lot of great movies a lot of movies that are going to stand the test of time and it always seems like he's being cast the way that a lot of young actresses or cast as the. Nayef as the like the naive and innocent who gets corrupted when put into a system and like did someone in a room. Say That to him. This is your lane man will early like you think so. Well I just don't think that he I think he's largely in charge of the movies that he makes. Now he's like. I think that the movies that we see our movies that Mark Wahlberg once made for the most part and my suspicion is the reason he made that transition. Amanda was referencing about just mostly doing action. Comedy movies now is because those movies are more fun and easier to make for him there either like a physical challenge there like a day on the set whereas making boogie nights as hard Russell Smart. Yeah I think that he is both like sinking very strategically as the schedule would suggest and also like not over thinking it i. That's the VIBE. I guess sometime at the end of the day he's going like it very much is what it is. He is a very Surface level or just immediate actor. That's that's what you're getting and so I think he wants. He gets to produce the movies himself and make the decisions. You just kind of like. Yeah action comedies. Got There before we get into our top fives and I think we should figure out what we mean. When we say top five if it's five performances or his top five movies because there's some complexity. There is a very strange celebrity. The the nine eleven thing is you're staring right at. It's just hanging over my head as I think about him as a public person. So in twenty twelve Walberg was quoted in a magazine interview regarding. What would have happened if he had flown aboard American Airlines Flight? Eleven on September eleventh. Two thousand one. He'd been booked on a flight on flight. Eleven but his plans changed the day before the scheduled flight and he cancelled his reservation. Walberg received public criticism for stating quote. If I was on that plane with my kids it wouldn't have went down like it did and there would have been a lot of blood in that first class cabin and then me saying okay. We're going to land somewhere safely. Don't worry Warburg apologized for those statements. But they're actually the sort of thing that kind of inform his public persona and when we watch him in an action movie. We think that he's the kind of guy who's like I would have kicked some ass on nine eleven which I don't know if you like complicates the quality of the films that he makes but I can't get stuff like that. Outta my head once I've read or heard about it and I feel like we've referred back to it even in a joking fashion over the years right. Yeah it is definitely one of the top three things that I think about. When someone says Mark Wahlberg schedule yeah nine eleven yeah and the last night of prosthetic but like you know. I'm human beings. It's the point of the movie full movie as leading to that so yes I agree. It's funny he is both. I think very funny as a comedic actor like entirely humorless and it's that some things he's in on the joke on some things he's just kind of being like no I would have save. I would have stopped nine eleven. Which is just a ridiculous thing to say. And that's the joke of Andy Sandberg's say Heidi Mother for me. Yeah you know portrayal of him is this is like he's kind of total rube but also not. There's something very elusive about. Whatever's going on with an entourage thing it's like. Do you watch entourage because you think it's completely ridiculous or do you watch entourage because you think it's like six awesome representative drama and I dare to say that Mark Wahlberg is like Yup? That's how it went. I you probably think you're right. Insulin entourage Ari comes on and it's really like Whoa but most but he's like that's accurate me. Like Vince is very much living my experience. He's like we should make a show about it. I think. I think that you guys are right. Do you think that this should be five performances or top five movies I choose? I don't know I don't know where I landed. I think I did I tried to be interesting here but I I wouldn't say that any of these performances leap out at me except for my number one and number two as like excellent performances. They're more like movies. I really like was he ever given a truly great performance. Yes I I think. There's one and a half great performances on this movie and it's just a half is the end of boogie nights. No no I. Well that might be the case now. There's another movie I still did performances but I think they are. They are a little bit also an award for the movie knowing how best to use him right. Okay well then let's get into it. Let's go into our top five Mark Wilbur performances slash movies number five Amanda. Why don't you start us off? This goes out to Bill Simmons and apparently to right who I still have never met. Hello Ryan. I'm going with fear. Why not whow revisit? Yes I did okay okay seen Djing
"sandberg" Discussed on Mom Inspired Show with Amber Sandberg
"You guys I'm super excited to have Stephanie here to do the four part series where we are going to be talking about simplifying your life so today we are going to be talking all about paper. I know as Moms we get inundated with all this paper that comes in the House and sometimes never leaves and so I just thought it'd be great for her to come on the show and just have her walk through what she does with her clients in regards to papers as well as what she does in her own house. So if you guys know a moms that are really struggling with just kind of simplifying. Their life make sure to share this episode with them and let them know that. This is a four part series We're going to be talking about papers today but next week. We're going to be talking about kids stuff and then day to day systems and then end on storage so I hope you guys really enjoyed the series you guys so before we jump into the show I was thinking it would be really fun to do a new segment so I thought you know what. Let's do my favorite things. I'd like to change things up from time to time. You know just do things that are different and because not. Everyone listens to every episode. Just hang in there with me because I probably will explain this over the next month or so that I'm going to be doing this. And so if this is something that you like and you're just wondering what product I might use or you know whatever and you WanNa ask me and you want me to talk about on the podcast. Totally mainly at amber mom inspired show dot com. Or if you follow me on Instagram at Amber Sandberg. You can message me or if you follow me at facebook you follow the mom inspired living page. You can message me there and I will answer your question on the podcast so I always like when people talk about their favorite things from bloggers. I don't watch a ton of Youtube but I know like when people are trying to figure out beauty products or makeup or whatever people to talk about their favorite things people on instagram. Talk about the things that they're liking so I wanna just talk about a wide range of things from maybe the books. I'm reading programs that I really like from you. Know beauty products health products. That kind of stuff I don't know if I'm going to talk about clothing that much. Because if people are listening a year from now they're not going to be able to go to target and address and I'm referring to so any hill That's where it does help you know to do things visually instagram. Because then you can link it up and then you can go find that product. So I just wanted to tell you that I am going to try my best to correlate the two meaning the products that I'm talking about to the interview that I'm doing and so today because we're starting the simplifying series and we're talking about paper something that came up while I was talking to Stephanie. Is Stephanie are totally different? Like Stephanie is more ruthless. And she's listening to this show will be cracking up but she is more ruthless with getting rid of things and I'm not but if you compared to todd my husband I'm probably more ruthless than he is and so it got me thinking about when I did the interviews with Beth mcchord. She is the Ingraham coach. And if you don't often your grandma is that I highly recommend listening to our episodes. You just type in. Mama's fired show And then type in bath mcchord or instagram. And you can pull that up but for those of you that know in your Graham. It's really just another personality test which I think is really. It's it's really. I feel more in depth and I feel like people resonate with it better than other personality tests so anyways the program that I wanted to talk about one of my favorites is Beth. Mccord's program that she has for the Graham and The one that you would start with is discovering you and if you subscribe to my email then all of this will be in the show notes in the email that you have in your inbox that is one of the perks of subscribing to my email. List.
Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg defends her company in interview
"Exclusive interview with Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg and to get the entire series search for buyers market wherever you're listening right now and subscribe. How do you explain to people. I know we lost your trust. And then he lost again. I know he lost it again but trust us we are trying to create an experience which is better for you. Trust us with your data. We're GONNA give the ADS and the content that you wanna see and then sort of break through to the next phase of facebook so we're definitely trying and so one thing is that people are continuing to use us. Growth has been very strong on all of our apps through this whole through this whole time. Now that doesn't mean we don't have to do a lot better. We do and we are working as hard as we can but it does mean that at some fundamental level people still trust the service and people are still use ours. People are still using the service. I think we've always done both. We've always done some growing the company and some protecting the community and I think the criticism of of us is you know we would do anything to grow. That was never the case. We always took a lot of strong action. That was in protecting but I think it's also really fair to say that we did not put enough resources on protecting the community and that has really shifted. The other thing is that we're learning because for every technology you've ever put out there including facebook. There are people use it well. People like Rebecca of our dog hotel. People are raising money for nonprofit and there are people who are trying to do really bad things and as those bads things have happened. We have to learn so go back to Russian interference election in two thousand sixteen. We didn't know what this was. We took down none of it in twenty seventeen we took down one what we call coordinated inauthentic in authentic see. I be coordinated enough any behavior. We took down one network in the last year. We've taken down fifty. That's because we now know what these are and we are searching for them and finding them. It's also because everyone knows what this is so we have a working relationship now with our government the FBI has a task force on this homeland. Security is focused. This was something that we all missed and now we have to work together and I do think. Part of it were mistakes. We made not putting enough resources on protection. We always did some but not enough and that shifted but part of it is that these are threats. That are not just on us there on everyone. When you use one tech platform you use all of them when you try to interfere in an election. Use everything and so I think the tech community I think the government there is a much more heightened awareness of what these things are and all of us working together to try to prevent them. And I think that's really important so you you look at what happened in Twenty Sixteen you. You try to identify the problem. You throw manpower financial resources all of this stuff at it and you're trying to deal you're basically trying to solve the problem as best you can of foreign meddling etc but then you've got all of a sudden you've got a new scandal on your hands as you guys seem to have every two or three months which is now like political ads and you've decided that you are not going to Be The arbiter of what is true. And false in in a political ad despite the fact that Other companies twitter. Google had sort of different stances on this You know without going too deep into it. I mean what is what is the if you've curb misinformation coming from Russia. What is the justification for maintaining this information coming from say President Donald Trump? So I do think this is a really important topic and I do think someone we take really seriously. We've thought about really deeply and there's no perfect answer here if you look at political ads and fact checking political ads. That's really not something anyone is capable of doing and we don't think we can make ourselves the arbiter the truth and I think it's pretty clear that political speeches about as scrutinize this speeches right review. Say something United States something on this pot so if I if if someone who is relatively less known says something. There's almost no scrutiny. You and I say something on this podcast. They'll be scrutiny of this presidential candidate says something in a debate. There's IT's fair to say a lot more scrutiny right. It's hard to argue that almost too much. It's hard to argue that what politicians are skiing isn't scrutinized. In fact the whole process of an election is one politicians has something one politician says something else. You say something's true. I say it's not true. I say something is true. That is the political process in the political debate. And we think that's a really important process and not one. We could ever be the arbiter of truth on. Do you feel like that you've been able to make that case and that and that you've convince people are you just feel like you're you can sort of do whatever you want because your facebook and people have to sort of move along now because there's still a lot of anger you know in the new in the Industry. I work and and look I get personally. I think it's sort of strange that a company that so many people don't trust want that company to be the arbiter of what's true or false but a lot of my colleagues feel like it's just crazy that you would let a blatant lie running an advertisement on facebook so I think what's really important in this is if you actually look at parties both sides all of them have weighed in and asked us to allow political ads to continue. And it's very important to know that that is strongly on the Republican side strong. The Democratic side we're political. Ads are most important and not everyone understand this and again that's on us is for income is for challengers political. Ads are most important for small races for for challengers for someone who doesn't have an established base and that's something we think is really important.

2020 Golden Globes Predictions
"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture of conversation show about predicting the results of an award show do not respect. That's right Amanda. The Golden Globes are nearly here. They are the conclusion of one of the more fun weekends of the year. We'll have NFL wild card weekend starting and then Dispatch the sped award. Show Fun for you nightmare for me. I will go straight from the eagles which my husband is too invested in into ricky surveys haltingly. Golden gloves so prepare for Sunday night attitude from Amanda yes I will be preparing for a weird attitude likely from ricky traverse one of the more more unusual figures to host an award show in the last ten or twenty years. He's back hosting Golden Globes. Were going to be predicting the results of some of these races which are chosen by ninety anyone mysterious foreign journalists Jervis was selected by these people to host the show in part because he has been the host of some successful editions of the Golden Globes. Last year was a different kind of Golden Globes humira call was hosted by Andy Sandberg and Sandra did not recall that. Until you said just now I think that I thought that that it was going to signal a new way forward for the Golden Globes. I don't know not necessarily a more progressive way forward but just the different kind of approach to hosting Alaska races back. What's your take on these days? Why are we still doing this? That every that's kind of where I am. I just like no thanks. I've moved on. I think we as a TV and awards. Washing washing community have moved on feels stale and it and he's feels like just kinda trying to hold onto whatever influence he had like ten years ago he still has a huge following and I think he's still a very successful comedian per se but he feels very fake controversial as a professional. Now where sort of everything he does is more of a provocation than a joke. which is not really where you WANNA be now famously on this award show? He's quite sharp elbowed he takes shots at celebrities as opposed to patting them on the back as many Golden Globes hosts have in the past I guess this is fine. I you know you think like what happens. When crosses the line and we have an outrage moment how will we handle that in this otherwise very convivial award show? I don't think people will care either will be the requisite op-eds or takes or whatever and perhaps that will distract from whatever terrible awards. The Hollywood foreign press gives out You know and maybe we'll put all of our anger into that and then we can just have an award. It's show maybe that's maybe it's a nice way of of dividing the components. Do you think we're queudrue vase was up for the joker and joker think he was auditioning against Joaquin now down He. He was auditioning for the Penguin. You know in the new one because everyone wanted to be the penguin You know this is a movie podcast broadcast but there are also a bunch of TV awards at the Golden Globes I. I haven't really paid much attention to the TV awards nor will be really prognosticating but yovany any sense of what's going. Go down here. TV was what were the big shows. Twenty nine thousand nine six session and fleabag will though shows win awards. What succession might succession session is nominated in drama along with big little lies the crown killing eve and wait for it then learn? They say that I watched the last year in the morning. Show who do not believe on the critics who came late to it and we're like wow the morning show is really become an investigation of me. Too Culture friends a dog wrote the last so it's more nutshell but anyway I still watched all of it. You could see it winning but you could also ASSOC- You know the crown seems like a very obvious when you can also see succession winning because the Golden Globes likes especially in the TV area to To get out ahead of the emmys succession has not yet won the major Emmy Award. This would be an announcement of succession as sort of the next great television. Show on Prestige Steve Cable. Whether that's still the case given the way that Netflix Amazon and all the other streamers have kind of barreled through the doors now is it will be interesting to see You know this. This is really weird. Best TV drama actress Jennifer Aniston. Olivia Colman Jody comber Nicole. Kidman Reese Witherspoon. Two nominations for the morning show. There are more billy crap. He's nominated for the morning show. If Billy Krupp wins for the morning show I take back half of everything I've said sad about the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is very strange. Maybe that's enough on TV awards. What else do we really want to make any sense things for succession fleabag everything else? I don't really care about. Let's let's start with something movie wise that I think is very relevant to this show. Do you think that this award show in. General is impactful on the the Oscar narrative in general or this year. Well let's start with in general. Yes I do because it just seizes attention and for a certain amount of time at a crucial moment and the awards are as much about attention economy as they are anything else. There are a lot of movies to see. There are a lot of voters who haven't quite quite caught up and I'm like oh I guess I should check this out and and sometimes I think it's reactive. Something wins and people are like I don't know about that. I'm GonNa make sure that I invest the other way but there isn't a fanfare around it. Everyone shows up for these. And it's televised and I just think the timing especially you can't help even if you're like this doesn't matter. I'm an ignoring it. We spend so much time talking about it. I do think it matters so last year of course Green Book won best drama and Bohemian. Wraps he won best musical or comedy though. I would argue. That Green Book is a comedy and Bohemian. rhapsody is neither a musical comedy drama. Those two films obviously competed heavily in one quite heavily heavily at the Academy Awards. Do you think that the results this year will sincerely affect the Oscars. Yes because the award season is much shorter this year. Nominations are in what voting begins today. That's that's insane. That's it's so fast and it's so compressed and I do feel like everyone is feels like if they're playing catch up. I'm still playing catch up on a couple of the Non Marquee categories. And I just think people will use this as a bellwether and also has an instruction action will of okay. Now I gotta go watch these three or I didn't like that this one so I'm going to do this. I don't know that it's one to one but yeah I think they're important. Would you argue that this is the most consequential Golden Globes in recent years. I guess so. Yes how strange. How strange I who have devoted so much of our lives to this it is? How do we let this happen? And I think you and I talked about at this early in the morning when the nominations were announced of. How have we allowed this group of people who tweeted airlines to become the major Oscar deciders? It's a very curious thing. Sometimes they do get stuff right. Yeah and sometimes they do vote in a manner that I think suggests like a clear lear narrative will be taking hold on something you know this year. There's an expectation. I'm getting ahead of myself. There's an expectation that Brad Pitt will win supporting actor. Brad Pitt is the consensus sensus favorite among almost every person. I've talked to to win best supporting actor that may not ultimately be the case. Maybe Al Pacino comes by. Maybe Joe Patchy comes by maybe Anthony Hopkins uh-huh bye-bye who knows it's a stacked category but among all the punditry for both the Oscars and the Golden Globes that I've read everyone agrees it's Brad Pitt. A part of that is because he's Uber famous and the famous is usually awarded here also the ingenue is usually awarded here. The morning show is sort of an ingenue at the at the Golden Globes this year. Wow maybe maybe a young performer. Who has never been who's never had a chance to win something before we'll also win here tonight to start with our predictions? Yes okay the first category. We're GONNA talk about his best motion picture foreign language now. This is notable because there is no universe in which this can reflect the Oscar nominations because there are two candidates here from France so are can also with a farewell will not qualify as foreign language. The first nominee is the Farewell Pedro Motive Painting Glory. Selena Gomez portability fire Bongino host parasite and lodge lease loomis Where was your heart? Tell you about this category category. I think this has to be parasite I think so too but okay international body. They've chosen to films is from France and they've basically chosen in American production a CO production and the farewell which is very popular seen by a great many people. They've been campaigning quite a bit. Yes also Pedro Almodovar's all trail possibly the most celebrated non-american filmmaker of the last twenty years. Twenty five years. Maybe it'd be overstating it he's in certainly in the conversation top five. That's all true. All Great Films Parasol is not eligible in either a drama or best picture drama or best picture a comedy Because it's forty which because that's how the Golden Globes work and Bongino is nominated for director and parasite is also nominated for screenplay I wish to signals to me that they really like parasite and this is the place where they can award parasite so you put your finger on something interesting. which is that people tend to look at the number of nominations especially amongst the small body like this as a clear indication of preference over other movies so once upon a time in Hollywood us five nominations at the Golden Globes? That must mean. It's a front runner in every category. Do you think that's true. Not In every category but I think that it means that there is interest in the film and that it will probably win something. I'm also kind of triangulating and and my picks because I don't think I think that they do try to actually sprinkle out awards among the movies that they do like so new spoilers but like I think this parasite parasite will triumph because it may not want other places interesting. I too am going with parasite. I think it would be insane to not go with parasite though I will be devil's advocating my way through this whole conversation. It's always voiced finds you podcast and live life with you Sean. Best motion picture animated amandus fever category frozen to how to train your dragon. The hidden world missing link Toy Story. Four and the Lion King which I find to be the funniest nomination here because the lion king was not submitted as animated feature to the Academy Nevertheless LS Globes has decided to nominate here. I would think twice. Sorry for yes I think that would be the only answer okay. I think that's the only truly beloved loved Film on this lineup. I think that's the only both critical and commercial success that tends to be the kind of wins. Best animated feature which is one of the more interesting features Church of the animated feature categories to me. Is that very rarely do films that are not commercially successful win there but all also also. You can't just be commercially successful. You have to be a masterpiece in the zone which is why pigs are winding picks ours when one almost every year at the Golden Globes since its inception except for last gear when Dino at one now I suck Spiderman Song. Oh Yeah that was a good movie. I was a great toy story. Four th. That's boring category. Hopefully they put that one up
Nell Scovell: 'Ten Years Ago, I Called Out David Letterman. This Month, We Sat Down to Talk'
"Welcome to the frame John Horn ten years ago. TV writer Nelson Avella took a pretty big risk. She published an article calling out her former boss. Late night King David Letterman for running writer's room and a show that favored men scovill has since co authored. Sheryl Sandberg's two thousand thirteen book. Lean in and last year she published a memoir. You're just the funny parts and a few hard truths about sneaking into Hollywood boys club for her latest piece. In Vanity Fair Scoville met with Letterman to finally talk about gender discrimination at late night. Scoville join me in studio and described what it was like to write for Letterman in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Yeah so this was a dream. I'm job for me I had already worked in Los Angeles. I actually worked on the last season of newhart. And I'd written a Simpson's episode road and I finally. After years of sending material to the Letterman people got a call asking me to come in and meet with Dave and like a lot of late night shows not a lot of women in the writer's room. Now there's only been one before I got hired it was Merrill Marco who was a genius and the first head writer on that show and also Dave's girlfriend at the time so I guess I was the first female hired who was in a relationship with Dave so many years after you leave the show in two thousand and nine something compels you to write about your experiences sir. Right Dave was the victim of a blackmail attempt. He was having an affair with one of his assistants Whose boyfriend found her diary and the scheme was that he threatened to write a screenplay about the affair? If Dave didn't give him two million dollars at the same time Nancy Franklin writes a piece in the New Yorker that points out that there were zero female writers on Letterman Leno and Conan. And I have to say Dave's announcement was not surprise. Is anyone who worked on the show knew about his extracurricular activities. But the fact that I'd been gone for twenty years and they'd move backwards awkward as far as gender in the writer's room that was stunning to me and I literally lost sleep so on a fast forward word to a decision you make and certainly there's another party to this conversation which is going back today. Insane I want to have a conversation about about the fact that you didn't respond to what I wrote. And how did that come about because there seems to be an important condition and that is that it's on the record as we approached October twenty nineteen. I knew it was the ten year anniversary of this article I had written for Vanity Fair and then I just got this crazy idea which is With Dave sit down and talk to me and I knew he hadn't read the article because in this weird coincidence he and I ended up working together in twenty fourteen on the Kennedy Center Honors and I actually had a chance to ask him. Did you ever read that article. And he said to my face no. I don't worry about that stuff. Don't worry about that stuff it meaning inning. He didn't wear. He doesn't worry about what people write about him. Is that what it means. Already doesn't worry about how he behaved and how he treats women he claims it is the former when you sat down with David. I'm curious what was the most striking thing that he had to say. Well first of all it was pretty extraordinary that he agreed to sit down with me. If you do any reading about apologies and someone wronged you find out that as the person who has been wronged you lose status status and so the second Dave agreed will sit at a table and talk. He really did offer me the status right. We were equals at that table and I would love to see more powerful white men doing that sort of thing which is being open to that discussion so the point was not just for me to get what turned out to be an apology from Dave but also to you try to model behavior that I would like to see more. We're talking with TV writer and author Nelson cavill you mentioned in your Vanity Fair Peas. How male all writers rooms have been for people like Jay Leno and he has no regret and no apology? No it's all about the material. Just if you give me material than I will hire you. Just come up to me in a comedy club. He says you know Jay Leno went off. The air was zero female writers and that's he should be ashamed that for the rest of his life. What would you say are the things that make you optimistic about how conversations are changing not just in and around this issue but in the workplace about a show runners interest in hiring a room that looks like the country not like the country club? I do think we've made some improvement and I think it certainly helps to have people like Kenya barriers and Shonda rhimes who have been so successful and even giverny They're all doing amazing work. And I think it's Shonda who made an amazing observation. which is if you walk outside? You see people of all colors. There's US see people from all walks of life that's normalcy so we actually shouldn't call it. Diversity what we want is normalcy. You know in Nineteen nineteen ninety. I went to the EMMYS for the first time Letterman had been nominated and I was in the audience when they announced the nominees for the five best comedies comedies and it was Murphy Brown Golden Girls Designing women wonder years and cheers three and a half of those shows were created by women. Diane English one for Murphy Brown and I sat there in nineteen ninety and thought we we solve this. We proved it. You're if such a dreamer now I just want to get back to where we were in. Nineteen Ninety nells. cavill is a TV writer. She's the author of the memoir. Just the funny parts in a few hard truths about sneaking into the Hollywood boys club. Now thanks much for coming in. Thank
Adina Hoffman: Ben Hecht: Fighting Words, Moving Pictures
"I'm Michael Silver Blah this bookworm arm and today I'm very pleased to have as my guest. Adina Hoffman the Dina has written a life of the great almost mind boggling screenwriter Ben. Hecht the book has the Subtitle Fighting Words moving pictures this Ben Hecht had his. Oh would you say finger in so many tries He starts out now having moved with his family to the mid West as soon as he graduates from high school. He realizes this is. The college is not for him and he high tails it to Chicago where he becomes a very well-known newspaper this paper Man Song well known that his adventures in the newspaper business but come perhaps the most is famous play ever to be written about newspapers that he wrote with Charles MacArthur. Yes called the front page. The the front page becomes his girl Friday with cary grant and Rosalind Russell and thereby hangs a tale every the time Ben Hecht turns around. There's a revision of something. He's done a new who've version of it by someone else that he in turn revise right even his own memoirs has multiple versions of what happened to him in his own life life. He's kind of astonishing. This came from the days when face at a writer wrote right. These were people who wrote all the time there's also literary life that Hecht has in Chicago and actually this was one of the fascinating things for me is where his kind of the big city You know newspaper world met the world of the Chicago Renaissance and a lot of the people who were in that newspaper world. People like Carl Sandberg. who was a really good friend of Heck's you know he was also a reporter and they were sort of Newspaperman by day and then by night they were writing their poems in their novels and Hecht was not only hanging around with people like Sherwood Anderson Jason and he was also publishing in the little review which is unbelievable magazine? Push some of the first chapters of James Joyce's ulysses and they felt. What was her name? Margaret Anderson Anderson felt that Ben Heck was every bit as much a member of of the little review says dream straight. And he's there on almost every single issue. He was a kind of a pet of hers. He was sort of in love with her. She was unfortunately Very distracted by high art and she was also a lesbian was not interested in in that way but she loved him and she published him. Ben Has a great fiction writer. I mean he was. He fancied himself self novelist But he was very devoted to that calling but at the same time that he was writing. These very heavy breathing stories for Margaret Anderson. He was also writing he. He was whipping off these commercials stories for Lincoln at the smart set. HMO MINKIN was one of his heroes. Mencken was a cynic cynic and a sophisticated and he had every bit of hostility toward the dumb aspects of American culture. He was trying to make America smart op. He wrote fascinating essays sason books on the American language as opposed to British. We don't get an American writer per se until until Mark Twain who's writing the Mississippi River. Talk that he learned when he was a boatman. Well by the time you've got the middle of the country Chicago you've got gangsters you've got prohibition you've got flappers you've got an American language wood jr that was invented here and Hecht loved. -actly yeah and I think for me. That was one of the wonderful things about spending time with him. I was reading. This book was spending time with his language. I mean whatever you WANNA say about. Whether his books are wonderful books or not so wonderful books he was a wonderful maker of sentences and paragraphs graphs and just terrific wit on top of it and he and Macarthur wrote the front page. which was kind of Valentine to that newspaper World of Chicago? You go where they've both been cub reporters you see. He comes in to the newspaper office. Writing these things. In Extreme Telegraphy Telegraphy as as you quote them right they are made of twenty three delight phrases. He's putting them together hurling them together and eventually he's going to have some fame as the newspaper Komo's rining calms every every day made up of just what he heard some Hobo say right or what some very wealthy people were saying in a casino no to be a writer then will start out as journalists. That's where Hemingway starts. He proposed this idea of. But this daily column that you've mentioned which would become known as a thousand and one afternoons in Chicago and they're kind of remarkable pieces they're just little snippets and there's a sense that the news is not just test the news of the grant headline it's also all these sort of marginal lives and people. You know the guy who runs the laundromat and the woman who works as a manicurist and has to fend off her lecherous clients. There's a way in which he's tossing this stuff off in a very casual way reading them daily. They're published on the back page of the newspaper next to the to the comic strips and he's not taking them too seriously or taking himself too seriously and there's so much better than the fiction into which he was pouring his all of his artistic ambition. That just is not the effective whereas these things that he was doing kind of on the fly as you say they're wonderful and they're incredibly generous and sympathetic. You feel him identifying with all of the city of Chicago In a way they kind of anticipate the work of later colonists people like beat Hamill and Jimmy Breslin. Who would become more famous in a way for doing doing that? who may also by now have been forgotten but act. was doing that early on. I'm talking to Adina Hoffman about. Don't her book Ben. Hecht its subtitle fighting. Words moving pictures and it's published in the Jewish writers series series published by Yale University. Press you mention that a lot of these people have been forgotten even people more recent Jonathan head so why Ben Hair. Well IT'S A. It's the question that I get all the time. And it's a good question and I mean basically at some level I feel like I've known Ben Hecht before before I knew Ben Hecht if you grow up watching American movies. He's his words are in your head even if you've never heard his name and so and I used to watch a lot of old movies as a kid but it was only when I became more conscious conscious and started to read about film history I actually worked as a film critic throughout most of the ninety s Then I was very aware of who Ben Hecht was and I I read his wonderful memoir child trial of the century. And I thought wow you know okay the movies he's known as you know. Pauline Kale called him the greatest American screenwriter Gianluca Dard said he invented eighty percent percent. Of what is used in Hollywood movies today called him a genius and all of that is true but the fact is that for heck the movies were really just a piece of it and in some ways they were actually may be one of the smaller pieces pieces of it in that memoir is full of all these other lives that we've just been talking about so I was first of all fascinated by that multiplicity of his the fact that he could contain multitudes dude but I also was drawn to heck in terms of his relationship to Jewish things. And here's a place where he basically an American Jew who claims not to have really paid much attention to the fact of his Jewishness until his consciousness was sort of raised by the Holocaust there. He's been in Chicago. He knows the woman. Editing the little review he knows call Sandberg. He knows Sherwood Anderson he moves to New York becomes friends with Herman Mankiewicz Herman Mankiewicz and also the roundtable tape Dorothy Parker and Benchley and S J Perelman and the Algonquin New Yorker Gang. He he moves to Los Angeles. He does what's so many do he has nothing but contempt damned for the people who started the motion picture industry. You say that you're interested in Hicks. Judaism with those were hits Jews. He didn't like them. There are a lot of Jews in heck's life he was actually born on the lower east side and he spent the first few years of his life. There and I don't actually think that that's Unimportant I mean. He grew up in Racine Wisconsin. which is this pastoral American American place etc but there is a way in which those tenements were in him in a very deep

It's so perfect and it's so great for families so I just wanted to mention that also. They have dark curtains that they can pull so all of you guys that are worried about like is it going to be so bride or I have kids that need to sleep and they have to sleep with dark curtains or blackout drapes or naps. This is great it makes it so dark and that my kids took naps so well and they were so tired from just doing so much stuff that they were conked out and I mean it's like pitch black in there which is which is so great for some people that really need that. So I I I love that so that was one of the great things about the rooms. One other thing too that I wanted to talk about is the island. If you are interested in going in a Disney cruise line they you have something. They have a private island called castaway Cay. And it's their own private island so if you're traveling in the Caribbean you're we're going to stop there and it has amazing food that is included in your package because it's their private island so you don't have to pay for any food You also get soft drinks. So you don't find that on their cruise ships like You know coke and all that kind of stuff is separate while it's included in Disney sneakers. I which can be dangerous if you're trying to not drink a lot of coke or whatever But the only thing you have to pay for is alcohol of course so One amazing thing that I love about castle also key is you can snorkel and you can find hidden Mickey's in the water. And they just do such an amazing job of making the islands so much fun and there's an adult section only that you can go and you know layout and just kind of be by herself and be quiet If you just need to get away from everything and then there's also like bike rental so that you can ride around the island and just explore and you just feel safe because it's their private island so the staff and you guys Komo everybody on the ship are the only people on the island and what's also cool to is. They have created like these barriers so that the water can't like come in easy so it Kinda makes it like a lagoon so when you have small kids though it's not like ways or just like rushing up and knocking the over so there's so much sand for the kids to just plan I. Mike has played with sand and making sand castles and just playing in the shallow water for hours. I mean that's so much fun. And then they have this hugely jungle gym type thing For the bigger his like jump into the water. We didn't even get to experience that I mean. Sometimes I feel like you probably need two days on his private island because it's just so amazing there's so many great things just to do on this private island so that is one of the other things people say. Is it worth it and I would say being able to go on. His private island is one one of the reasons why it makes it so worth it and so I think we're getting close to the end. I'm just trying to think. What else would you guys might want to know that I can finish up on okay? So if you're not familiar with cruising there is different styles of dining. There's some ships have like free style dining But Disney what they have is set dining. So it's either first or second and the first half forty five PM and the second is at eight so well how why they do this because you no five forty five can feel early for some and then a can feel really late but what they do is they have two shows each night and so how it works the first dining so when they're eating the second dining group is watching a show and then it's flipped so for us we pick to the five forty five because we had younger kids and I'm just like they need not eat or they're going to melt down so what we did is we went to dinner at five forty five and then we would go to a really fun show that is totally kid-friendly. That is the other thing when you go going other cruise lines. The shows aren't always necessarily kid-friendly. So you can know going into these shows that you can watch it and not have to worry that something's going to be inner owner inappropriate and I just love that so That's one thing that you have to think about too like so if you have older kids I would definitely recommend the APM show I mean apm dining and then you would see the show first and then they also do other fun. Things like pirate night which is so great and they shoot off fireworks. I mean it is so much fun. There is so many fun things that I I mean I could just keep going on and on about this In this episode could end up being two hours long. So I'm just trying to work through this. And then with the with the restaurants there are three restaurants that are included and you get to rotate through all of them so you don't just get stuck in one of the restaurants and what is even better. Is that your waitstaff waitstaff that you start off with they rotate with you. So they are in so whatever restaurant you're in there in there with you so The first one is is the royal palace and this feels very royal like Cinderella. Then there's animators plate and this is so kid-friendly which I mean all of them are kid friendly of course but it's it's just so fun it's just like there's art pallets on the wall and then crushed from Nemo is like talking to you on the wall and it's just a lot of fun and then the other one is enchanted chanted garden and this would just feel so dreamy I don't know it's just like there's Ivy everywhere and you feel you feel like you're in a garden and what's really cool about having the same servers move with you as they learn what you like so for example if you drink coke okay they eventually will be like have that coke ready for you and say your wife or whatever. Your husband doesn't eat gluten gluten free bread you'll notice there'll be a basket of gluten free rolls along with the gluten roles and then my kids. They weren't really wanting to eat the salad. Buffet loved the cucumbers so after the first time they they realized that Migros always wanted cucumbers. So we would sit down and we would find that there'd be sliced cucumbers with ranch dressing and waiting for the girls. I mean it was just amazing. And that's what I mean. This is where it's like their customer service. It just shines. I mean it's just it's so amazing so and also to like talking about what the gluten free stuff like. If view have allergies of your kids have allergies. They are on top of this. I mean they will make you feel so comfortable like you won't feel like you're being high maintenance I and they will make sure that you are taking care of and so to the point that you can preorder your meals and pick them up the next day for breakfast or lunch which at the buffet. So that you're all set and not having to worry. Like oh where they're nuts touching our their eggs touching that like you're totally taking care of and you never feel feel like you're being high maintenance and just making things hard for people. They are totally all about helping people be so happy with with their vacation. I mean that's what you're going there. You're going on vacation to be able to relax especially as parents with kids with allergies. You don't WanNa be stressed so you will feel so good about your your experience okay. And then the other thing is that there are two options for adult only dining. So if you have grandparents that are coming with you or you want to put the kids in the club You can go to Palo or romy and this is an extra charge. I think it's around thirty dollars per person so the food is included in. What you're paying for is just the atmosphere and the experience and you have to pay for alcohol? So it's more like a quiet Darker setting that feels more like date night and you know there's wine impairing and all that kind of stuff so if you're looking for a little something more than what you've already have gotten. This is a great opportunity for you to have some quality time with your spouse vows or if you've gone with some friends and you guys just want to go and have a great dinner together. This is definitely an option so I also wanted to talk about seasickness. One thing that you can do I get seasick. I can I can get sea sickness and I didn't this time but I wore the see bands and sometimes people well Where patches but I always recommend you have like kids dramamine drama on and and then regular dramamine and then I did bit bring see bands for for the kids and todd just in case But they didn't need to use it. I feel like I wore just to be on the safe side. I've gotten sick on a trip before are and then But the majority of the time I have not gotten sick. And that's where the Verandah comes in handy. Let me tell you if you can get outside and look to the horizon. That is totally going to help you. And my thing is is. If you can't afford the Verandah at least get a window in your room. I don't get it inside having get an outside cabins so that you have a window so you can at least look outside. That is my biggest recommendation if you cannot afford a Veranda so there's just some other things too and then I'm I'm going to be done and then we can talk about this person if you want to find out more One of the other things that I loved about Disney cruise is they have these phones called wave phones and they only work on the ship but what they can do is you can if you had older kids you could give them one of the way phones and they contact you this way but if you have little kids and they're in the kids hits club this is how they're going to get a hold of you if your kids WanNa leave or if they wanna go eat or if they or if they just need something and so you're never like well. How are they going to get a hold of me? Like what am I gonNa Anna. Ju this is where that comes in handy in it so perfect so I just WanNa say you guys. If you're considering it I would highly recommend it and I will help you figure out. When is the best time to go? for your price point and we can figure something out. I don't think you will ever regret going on a Disney cruise line. So you guys. We are almost at the end ended the show and I wanted to let you know that I have a Freebie for you guys so what it is is packing less. It's ten packing must have for. Oh you're Disney cruise that you.

I'm getting ready to do a podcast on the topic for those that have never been what are some of the questions that you have or what is holding you back from booking one so here are some of the questions you guys had I would be interested to hear about how small and claustrophobic the rooms are and how good slash safe are the kids clubs also how crowded are the pools another person said I would like to know the benefits to doing a cruise versus a Disney resort for a Disney experience also a cruise versus Disney cruise line so a different cruise line versus this is Disney cruise line and then also people would say I don't know about the price you know is it too expensive can we afford this as at worth that and then the last question question I had was what age do you think kids are too old to get the most out of this and I love all these questions so I'm GonNa Kinda to just go through these and then I'm going to go through my experience last year so I went in two thousand seventeen with my kids were three and six just to give you a gauge of of my references okay so going back to the first question would it be interested in knowing how small and Costra phobic the rooms are so if you've never been on a cruise this is going to be hard because if you never been on a cruise you don't realize that the cruise rooms there's they're called sweets are a smaller then hotel rooms right there on a ship so they gotta keep things tight so it's going to it's going to feel small but in comparison to other cruise lines I would say they're pretty equal generally what you see is used to get bad a pretty good sized bed okay queen or king sized bed and then you have a couch and then you have a bad that comes out from the ceiling which let me tell you that was my girls highlight it one of the highlights of the trip which is hilarious on my okay we can probably try to figure this out somewhere else not pay for Disney cruise line ships so it comes out of the ceiling so it's like a bunk bed feeling so it's like the bad turns into I mean the couch turns into a bed and then another bag comes from the ceiling and then you have a ladder so that's really awesome awesome now if you have a family of five then you're gonna want an adjoining room because that way you have a double space there are suites so there are suites if you just want bigger space like just more living space but if you're looking for more beds it's you would probably want to do the adjoining room and so that way you have two doors that open up into each each of the rooms right so then you can kinda keep them propped open open so he can just go between the two so that in itself helps with being claustrophobic like just having to living spaces that you can kind of walk between and so that that is really great and if you have a family of five that is what you need to do and so if you have a family of four then you can decide if you really need to have a sweet or four if you need to have two rooms spread it out but in my opinion you're not really in the rooms that much what I would actually recommend is to get a verandah which is a balcony that gives you the feeling of not being so claustrophobic it has a whole wall of being a window and so that way you don't feel like you're stuck in a cave or something like that right so that is my recommendation if you feel a little bit like you're going to be cost or phobic then you definitely need to get verandas you can step out onto the veranda breathing some fresh air not feel stuck and I love the Verandah anyways because as you can just sit down and drink coffee or you can have a glass of wine it's just really great and so and the thing is to some people might be like oh my gosh but what about the railing and the kids will the railing is high up I mean and you're not gonNa ever let your kids out there without knowing and you just lock the door you know so so that is is my suggestion for people if they kind of are worried about that but if you're really worried about the in general then you kind of need to think about cruises altogether because you're going to run into that everywhere you go right like the railings. I have never felt unsafe with the girls so that gives you an idea but you are the only one who knows your children so but I just wanted to paint that picture that I've never felt worried about that okay so that's kind of the claustrophobic situation and the size of the rooms the next x one is how good safe are the kids club I'm going to go into this in a minute because I'm going to go into more depth so let's have about how crowded are the pools so with any cruise line the pools are not humongous because they don't want all this body of water in the ship right like if it just be splashing around so so you're not going to be finding like a humongous resort pool there's only so much space and so you have to know that that is going to be busy especially when it's days at sea see the Disney dream and that's where that's the ship I went on for four nights in the Bahamas cruise I should have said at the beginning I don't know why didn't so it's a a four night Bahamas cruise going out of Port Canaveral and so it has the aqueduct so as a cool waterslide then has a smaller slide for just kids ads and my oldest skyla she loved the the smaller one actually and then there's also an adult pool that's really quiet so if your kids are in the kids club I say go over to the adult pool where it's actually really quiet and calm so that's what I have to say about crowded pools so the other one is Dewey cruise versus a Disney resort for Disney experience. Okay you guys if you've never been to Disneyworld then and I feel like you need to go to Disneyworld okay like they're very hard to compare Disney cruise line does such an amazing gene job of making it feel like a Disney experience I mean they they have a theme in down they have the hospitality down but it's not a it's not apart though right so if you are wanting to experience the rides and all that kind of stuff then that is like it's trying to compare apples apples and oranges I will say though what's awesome about Disney cruise line is they provide a three and four night cruise cruises so what I would do if you're interested interested is you do the resort for a couple of days and the parks and then you get on a cruise and relax from running around at the parks all day and if you've been to the Disney if you've been to Disneyworld you know what I'm referring to you when I say Oh this will be nice to relax relax and just take it easy from you know just doing the craziness of of Disneyworld disneyworld resorts with kids but if you're just wanting to really.

"You guys so I'm super excited. I'm going to do a replay of an episode. I did maybe maybe a year ago about Disney cruises so I am having more and more people realize that I'm a travel agent. I don't talk about in depth on every show and so I figured did you know what let's just play a travel episode again. I know I just at Cobb. Oh two weeks ago But I just want to explain really quick the kind of vacations that I do plan a lot of people come up to me and asked me do I. Do you know all inclusive and Hawaii and all that stuff and the answer is is yes so I do all inclusive. That is anything in the Caribbean. But I be. Here's something that you guys should know when you come to me. Asking for an all inclusive have ninety percent of all inclusive is actually in Mexico and so You just have to know that in the back of your head that if you're wanting a an amazing all inclusive you're probably GONNA and have to go to Mexico but besides that point book not all inclusive. That's why I wanted to do the Kabo episode. But I do the Caribbean I do Mexico. I actually just booked recently. Bentley a multi generational trip to Hawaii I'm super excited for this family to go next summer. Celebrate the grandparents anniversary. I'm doing a daughter. As a mother daughter. Spring trip Group trip and so to Mexico and I do couples trips. I do family trips you name it. I do it and I can help you go to Ireland. I can help you go to Australia. I can help you go to Alaska. I help you with cruises. And that's why I wanted to do the Disney cruise because I truly love Disney cruises and For those of you that Love Disney but maybe WanNa break or some of you are just like you know what Disney parks are just too overwhelming coming for me. The Disney cruise is such a perfect option. And so I feel like the quality is so good to And I will say that Royal Caribbean when is my next best for cruise lines. So if you're kind of like I don't WanNa Disney. I can totally help you with Royal Caribbean Cruise But I wanted to replay this just for those of you. That have been maybe thinking about it. It would be a great family multi generational family trip to go on a Disney cruise. Or just go with your immediate family. I just wanted to replay it for you guys and just let you know that if you work with me it costs nothing to you I get paid by the vendor so some of you may not know no that and so I just WanNa make that clear so just reach out to me You can find me on my website. You can message me if you subscribe to my email list. You can just email me Back when you get my weekly emails with the podcast and all the show notes and all that stuff you can message me on facebook or Instagram Environment Amber Sandberg where where if you follow me. A mom inspired living so just reach out to me and I would love to help you plan your next vacation. The main thing that I don't do is I don't just book airtickets The airlines do not play pay travel agents. So there's no benefit that we can provide for you on that so some people have reached out to me for that and so it's probably Louis a good place for me to clarify that but if it's in a package deal then I have my wholesaler group. It altogether so then it works that way but I just don't do them separate are like that's the only thing that book so anyway. I hope you guys get inspired. And I hope you WanNa Disney cruise and make sure you come back to me if you you decide to do it or if you wanna go on any other kind of vacation I would love to help you so enjoy the show all right. So we're going to jump into this. The reason why I wanted to do a Disney cruise episodes because I feel like Disney cruise line is amazing and I went last year and I felt like I got a lot of people saying like oh my gosh. That's on my bucket list. I can't wait to do it. And they would ask me like how was it. Was it worth it and so I just wanted to do an episode where he kind of talk about this stuff you know. Especially Ashley is a travel agent and I can help you with this and come alongside of you but I wanted to give you a little bit of information so you could figure out if this is the right choice for you I put Out On facebook and instagram. Not that long ago asking a question about Disney cruise lines. So this is what I said. Have you ever thought about going on a Disney cruise. I'm getting ready to do a podcast on the topic for those that have never been. What are some of the questions that you have? Or what is holding you back from booking one so here are some of the questions you guys had. I would be interested to hear. About how small and claustrophobic the rooms are. And how good slash safe are the kids clubs. Also how crowded are the pools. Another person said I would like to know the benefits to doing a cruise versus a Disney resort for a Disney experience also a cruise versus Disney cruise line so a different cruise line versus this is Disney cruise line and then also people would say. I don't know about the price you know. Is it too expensive. Can we afford this as at worth that and then the last question question I had was what age do you think kids are too old to get the most out of this and I love all these questions. So I'm GonNa Kinda to just go through these and then I'm going to go through my experience last year so I went in two thousand seventeen with my kids. Were three and six just to give you a gauge of of my references. Okay so going back to the first question. Would it be interested in. Knowing how small and Costra phobic the rooms are so if you've never been on a cruise this is going to be hard because if you never been on a cruise you don't realize that the cruise rooms there's they're called sweets are a smaller then hotel rooms right there on a ship so they gotta keep things tight so it's going to. It's going to feel small. But in comparison to other cruise lines. I would say they're pretty equal. Generally what you see is used to get bad a pretty good sized bed okay queen or king sized bed and then you have a couch and then you have a bad that comes out from the ceiling which let me tell you that was my girls. Highlight it one of the highlights of the trip. Which is hilarious on my okay? We can probably try to figure this out somewhere else not pay for Disney cruise line ships so It comes out of the ceiling so it's like a bunk bed feeling so it's like the bad turns into. I mean the couch turns into a bed and then another bag comes from the ceiling and then you have a ladder. So that's really awesome. Awesome now if you have a family of five. Then you're gonna want an adjoining room because that way you have a double space. There are suites so there are suites. If you just want bigger space like just more living space but if you're looking for more beds it's you would probably want to do the adjoining room and so that way you have two doors that open up into each each of the rooms right so then you can kinda keep them propped open open so he can just go between the two. So that in itself helps with being claustrophobic like just having to living spaces that you can kind of walk between and so that that is really great and if you have a family of five that is what you need to do and so if you have a family of four then you can decide if you really need to have a sweet or four if you need to have two rooms spread it out but in my opinion you're not really in the rooms that much. What I would actually recommend is to get a verandah which is a balcony That gives you the feeling of not being so claustrophobic. It has a whole wall of being a window and so that way. You don't feel like you're stuck in a cave or something like that right so that is my recommendation. If you feel a little bit like you're going to be Costra phobic then you definitely need to get verandas and then that way you can step out onto the veranda breathing. Some fresh air not feel stuck. And I love the Verandah anyways because as you can just sit down and drink coffee or you can have a glass of wine. It's just really great and so And the thing is to some people might be like. Oh my gosh. But what about the railing and the kids will. The railing is high up. I mean and you're not GonNa ever let your kids out there without knowing and you just lock the door you know so So that is is my suggestion for people if they kind of are worried about that. But if you're really worried about the in general then you kind of need to think about cruises altogether because you're going to run into that everywhere you go right like the railings. I have never felt unsafe with the girls. So that gives you an idea but you are the only one who knows your children so but I just wanted to paint that picture. That I've never felt worried about that. Okay so that's kind of the claustrophobic situation and the size of the rooms. The next x one is how good safe are the kids club. I'm going to go into this in a minute because I'm going to go into more depth so let's have about. How crowded are the pools so with any cruise line? The pools are not humongous. Because they don't want all this body of water in the ship right like if it just be splashing around so so you're not going to be finding like a humongous resort pool. There's only so much space and so you have to know that that is going to be busy. Especially when it's days at sea see The Disney dream. And that's where that's the ship. I went on for four nights in the Bahamas cruise. I should have said at the beginning. I don't know why didn't so it's a a four night Bahamas cruise going out of Port Canaveral. And so it has the aqueduct so as a cool waterslide then has a smaller slide for just kids ads and My oldest Skyla. She loved the the smaller one. Actually and then there's also an adult pool. That's really quiet so if your kids are in the kids club I say go over to the adult pool where it's actually really quiet and calm. So that's what I have to say about crowded pools so the other one is dewey cruise versus a Disney resort for Disney experience. Okay you guys. If you've never been to Disneyworld then and I feel like you need to go to Disneyworld. Okay like they're very hard to compare Disney cruise line does such an amazing gene job of making it feel like a Disney experience. I mean they. They have a theme in down. They have the hospitality down. But it's not a it's not apart though right so if you are wanting to experience the rides and all that kind of stuff then that is like. It's trying to compare apples apples and oranges. I will say though what's awesome about Disney cruise line is they provide a three and four night cruise cruises. So what I would do. If you're interested interested. Is You do the resort for a couple of days and the parks and then you get on a cruise and relax from running around at the parks all day. And if you've been to the Disney if you've been to Disneyworld you know what I'm referring to you when I say Oh this will be nice to relax relax and just take it easy from you. Know just doing the craziness of of Disneyworld disneyworld resorts with kits. But if you're just wanting to really experience Disneyworld and you've never been I say give that go. Oh I and then I would definitely do a Disney cruise later but again if you WANNA do both they have the three tonight three to four night cruises and then you compare it with the resort -sorts and that's called A Land Sea package so.

"And I leave early because we Iran central time so it was six o'clock I I know I sound like an old person but it was seven o'clock Nashville time and I just really don't like eating super late. You go to bed and so because we're eating like so early at six or seven our time. It wasn't super busy. We were able to just sit. Say like in this booth that was overlooking the water and it was so gorgeous and we can see the sunset. And I don't even know and it's really felt like Hawaii to me and I've been to Maui and if you don't want to track all the way over to Hawaii I feel like this is such a perfect option and I'll say going from Nashville to Kabo. I think it was two and a half hours to get to Houston and then an hour and a half to get there so it really wasn't that bad. It was only an hour time difference so to me. That's pretty good especially comparing to Hawaii. Because I I have clients why right now and it's a track and so anyway. The food was delicious. The Room is humongous. The bathroom is humongous. There's a bathtub and shower. It depends on what room. You're the balcony is huge huge. You can see the ocean. It was gorgeous and the room wise. Let me let me think about it. So the room is not super modern. But it's not festive festive like an Mexican style. But it's not streamlined. And Clean Lines. But I'm trying to think what if feels like I don't know now I'm losing my mind. What how to describe it? That doesn't really matter but I will tell you all the best we slept in. Were super super comfortable and you guys. If there's a pillow that you're kind of like you know what this is like like smashing too much to the to the to the bed like we're used to earn pillows they will go get you other pillows. All of the resort's ball. They will help you figure out a pillow that works for you and this is what I'm talking about luxury. I mean when you're kind of like okay. These pills are not working for me. They want you to feel rested and the beds. I felt so good and so rest is sleeping there. I need to think about what else I want to say about one and only before Dan. I don't want this to go too long for you guys. You know the WHO'll was amazing.

How how to use whatever? Here's your robes. Here's a Blah Blah Blah. All the stuff I mean. When's the last time somebody walked into your hotel room explaining how everything worked right?

"Kids and and it just seems like an option if you wanted that but truly is a family oriented place but there is separate adult only pools from the family and I will say that their food was delicious and we locked out because there weren't a lot of people there and I leave early because we Iran central time so it was six o'clock I I know I sound like an old person but it was seven o'clock Nashville time and I just really don't like eating super late you go to bed and so because we're eating like so early at six or seven our time it wasn't super busy we were able to just sit say like in this booth that was overlooking the water and it was so gorgeous and we can see the sunset and I don't even know and it's really felt like Hawaii to me and I've been to Maui and if you don't want to track all the way over to Hawaii I feel like this is such a perfect option and I'll say going from Nashville to Kabo I think it was two and a half hours to get to Houston and then an hour and a half to get there so it really wasn't that bad it was only an hour time difference so to me that's pretty good especially comparing to Hawaii because I I have clients why right now and it's a track and so anyway the food was delicious the room is humongous the bathroom is humongous there's a bathtub and shower it depends on what room you're the balcony is huge huge you can see the ocean it was gorgeous and the room wise let me let me think about it so the room is not super modern but it's not festive festive like an Mexican style but it's not streamlined and clean lines but I'm trying to think what if feels like I don't know now I'm losing my mind what how to describe it that doesn't really matter but I will tell you all the best we slept in were super super comfortable and you guys if there's a pillow that you're kind of like you know what this is like like smashing too much to the to the to the bed like we're used to earn pillows they will go get you other pillows all of the resort's ball they will help you figure out a pillow that works for you and this is what I'm talking about luxury I mean when you're kind of like okay these pills are not working for me they want you to feel rested and the beds I felt so good and so rest is sleeping there I need to think about what else I want to say about one and only before Dan I don't want this to go too long for you guys you know the who'll was amazing this is what I noticed one and only what's great about this and so was montage in grandma's I had us okay so they they are on top of what you need to the point again I'm talking to all of you moms out there were so used to doing everything right with the kids that okay so I wanted to sit in these chairs but it was in the sign and I'm thinking okay can I move the umbrella you know no

"And I don't even know how they made it and it wasn't disgusting it was actually delicious and so Their food was so good. Their pool food was so delicious. I ordered HAMAS and vegetables and corn chips and then one the time we actually went to one of their restaurants and we could have it delivered out to the pool so todd got salmon. I was really wanting a burger at this point. I don't know I really wanted wanted to American food. I got a burger with fries. It was so good and we got tros with caramel sauce and chocolate dipping sauce. The pool and it. It was so good like it's not your traditional pool food it mean it's just really amazing yummy food that you wouldn't even realize you are at an all inclusive and so I feel like with families. This is an amazing option to go to and they had a cute little playground and for the little ones and a little splash splash pad area for them to plan and then we also went to the teen area and that was so cool. There was all these video game systems that the kids could play on the teenagers. They could have candy bars. It's like a display of cakes and stuff like that for them. They can play air hockey. There's like a dance party thing going on in the back and I mean there's just so much fun things for the kids to do. I just feel like a good blend of you know having adult time and kid time time and you can put them in the kids club so that if you wanted to go to dinner just with you and your husband or if you were to go with like other couples or your parents and just wanted adult time I think it's it's amazing and so I just really loved grand villas and so it just made me feel even more confident to keep sending people there and I don't know it's just awesome and GRANDPA's you can upgrade and get a plunge pool if you wanted But the balconies are humongous. I mean you have like this bed and these is two chairs and a table. And they're all ocean view. That's what I love about. Grand Velez in Kabul is the way that they have designed the hotel every room. You can see the ocean which I thought was really cool. One thing that I noticed too about the beaches so like I mentioned montage you can swim. Resorted Patriarchal you cannot swim. In the beach and GRANDPA's you cannot swim in the beach but even walking the beaches you have to be careful because the water comes up so high and so so I thought that was really interesting just experiencing like walking the beaches and how that might feel and with that kind of feels scarier. Not and some people. Don't don't really care about the beach. I like walking the beaches and seeing if there's any shells and stuff like that and So those beaches you do have to be careful about and I will. I'll tell you in a minute. The beaches that I felt were less calm. I mean more calm for not being beach. That's going to be my next one and it's Spicer Roy. So just ending on Grand Palace. It truly amazing property. I had so much the food was so good. The breakfast was so good and let me go back to resort electrical so they're buffet. Todd was saying this is one of the best practices I've ever had and it just was it was really really Delicious it's interesting at all the resources we went to if they had granola they it was granola that they all had made. They all have their own recipes and they were are so good and we'll put in yogurt. I don't really eat a lot of yogurt so I would have it with almond milk and it was just so good. Everything was so good and so your eyes were just look at all the Food and you think oh my gosh. I can't eat all of this. So resorted petrol. Their breakfast was delicious. And I would say that Grand Velez was on par. You're with resort petrol and this is again I am saying this is how you see. That Grand Valla stands out over other properties because when their food is as good good if not better than not all inclusive that says a lot they even have a Michelin Star Chef at the Grand Palace which is huge a lot of times. That's why people are even going to GRANDPA's because of that. So that says a lot about a resort and the quality of food. And especially. If you're foodie these are the places to go I I did one in the mornings. We had breakfast in the room so that I could experience how that was and it was great. The food was hot. It was so good I I ordered eggs and they brought me refried beans. It wasn't it was like they whipped it up or something. I don't know it was so good. It was salsa it it was just delicious like it it just tasted so good and I had waffles and it just really blew me away for being breakfast having in the room because sometimes you might feel like going missing out by staying in the room to eat and I really wanted to experience that to share that with you guys and I loved it. Okay so then. We moved onto viceroy. Now Vice worry there's other properties throughout the United States. People really loved one in Chicago what I realize they all very different so the one in Kabo what it feels feels like to me is a little blend of Las Vegas and Miami. It's very chic and very white and Very very modern and they are really about the technology and what I mean by that is what was really cool about it when we went into the room. It's very modern like I said and clean lines and so they have the blinds from the balcony. You can push a button by your bed and those will drop down on so if it's too sunny or if you want the privacy but you still want light coming through you can drop that down and then you can drop your other blinds that are insider room by pushing a button at your bet and then those come down and then a Dr- like a rape comes down for when you're ready to sleep to make dark and then you can make their these lights. That ran along the drapes which I thought was so cool you could make them Turquoise Purple Pink. I Dunno they just made a lot of fun with technology and I thought that was really cool One thing that stood out to me was their pool. Didn't seem that didn't seem. It wasn't as big as what I was familiar with with. Montage and Graham Graham Bellas resort Patrick pools kind of smaller but they have three of them. So I think that helps but Montage Pool seems huge to me. Graham Bell's was huge and so when I compare it to Viceroy Pool is just not as big And some people may not care about that now I will say what I liked about. visory their beach. I felt like we could walk on that very easily. It was like a big beach and the water did not come up as high so you could really walk a really far distance now. Some people don't care about that stuff but some people really do like to walk the beach right like they they. They like walking the beach. They they're like on a beach vacation. I want to be able to walk it. Even if they don't WanNa go in it so I really did love that I will say that their breakfast was also amazing. They had this banana bread French toast and it was to die for it was so good that even got second serving and there was this other EG meal that I don't know what else was in it. It was very Mexican feeling and it was delicious and so Their food was so yummy. Me One thing that I noticed this place is family oriented. But I'm going to tell you what I felt about it. I felt that it's a great place to go with your spouse or to go on a girl's trip it feels very adult oriented to me and it feels very like nightlife like if you WanNa stay up and you you want to eat on the rooftop and there's music going and you really loved nightlife. This is a great place to consider. Because that's the vibe that I got that it's it's kind of like it comes alive at night time. I will say because I checked all the gyms at all the resorts there. Jim was really amazing. So I think you're you're pulling in people who care about their health. They want to stay in shape while they're gone. But you know maybe have a few drinks and yummy meals. But they'll go to the gym the next day work work it off. They had so many different machine. They had the ropes. They had waited sled that you can push that these really cool like when you're doing pull ups but you're almost Wall climbing there. Jim was to me the best out of all of them. I thought to myself I think the people who are coming here are wanting to have fun. But they don't want to go too far off lake working out and staying in shape and feeling good. So that's what I felt about Roy like that's the vibe that I got and and also you can rent bikes and I wish we could have done it. But we were running out of time I totally would have rode my bike like a down the road or wherever it went and That's part is complementary and I just thought that was really cool okay. So moving on to our last resort and that was one and only okay so one and only miata feels like Hawaii as well so grand villas and and one and only feel like Hawaii to me. It's so lush that you have no idea that you're in a desert and their grounds are huge and it's just so much trees and palm trees and bushes and flowers and I don't know what it is about. It just felt really really amazing and it felt like you were really tucked away. You really had a drive into Canada from the main road to get in which I think is kind of cool so because we we went in September there. Were not a lot of kids there. So if you WANNA go to these places I would highly recommend going when school is in session But this is what they said. This is a very family oriented resort to the point that fifty percent of their clientele are returning clients which I think says a a lot I can see why so I'm GonNa go through this our first of all one and only if it blew me away because their customer service to who was so amazing similar to montage to the point where it almost goes making me uncomfortable because I'm just not used to having so much attention and people focused on me you know as Moms we all know this rate like everybody's like snack. I want this I'm hungry. She's hitting me Blah Blah. My shirt needs to be cleaned. I didn't do my homework. And so you're so used to giving giving giving giving giving it gets turned on you even though that sounds amazing. You're kind of like Whoa. I am not used to this. It's like I'm like I don't know what to do with myself. Everybody is hating me either. A drink a non alcoholic or an alcoholic or or they're handing me a tropical popsicle and it just was. It was awesome Mike but it took a minute for me to get used to and what I loved about one and the only is they have a Butler to go with your room. So even if you're going into the entry level realm you get a Butler and so how it works is when you're seeing not in the highest level so if you're saying in a really high level room a- Butler might go between two to three groom's may be where the Butler that I had was going between seven and eight rooms and then maybe there would be a lower level that maybe they're going between ten rooms. I'm guessing guessing so they're not like a Butler standing at your door but where it comes in handy. Is this going to tell you. This is where it's truly amazing. Where if you came here with kids leads it would be a lifesaver? So here's an example. You get the kids all going and you get to the pool and you realize Johnny has left their swim goggles in the hotel room all you have to do is let someone know who works there to say. Hey I'm in this room. Can you let my I butler. No we left our goggles in our swim bag in the room in her closet and they will go. Get it for you to me. That screams luxury tree at its finest because how many of us know that like oh or even better you forget your swim diaper. And you're like okay. I'm going to have to hike it all the way back. Data has to watch the five kids. Or Okay I'll bring some of the kids or maybe Dad's golfing and you've taken the kids and now you gotta pack them all back up to walk back as you know you need that swim diaper so I mean the the fact that they have thought of these things to me. That blew my mind. I was like Oh my gosh and I think a lot of times people would think that seems like too over the top like just having that extra hand to help you so mazing and they will unpack your bags now. They didn't do that for us. Because we're really trying to live out of our bags But they would pack our bags so that we can have more time. And I don't know it just really pretty pampered. I would say this is the place to go now. If you don't WanNa go with your kids there is an adult only part and it's completely separate so you can go there and not have the Kiddos with you you and feel like you are in a very romantic vacation. The SPA area is very isolated and feels very calming. And there's like these little pools that you could lay out with the hubby and stuff like that. If you didn't want to go with the kids they also have a kids program so even if you WanNa have that time by yourself love with your husband Uber them in the kids club and they have a cool playground in the back and one of the girls was playing a game with one of the kids and and it just seems like an option if you wanted that but truly is a family oriented place but there is separate adult only pools from the family and I will say that their food was delicious and we locked out because there weren't a lot of people there.

"Of I want people to know my name I want all these things then montage news at the top of our list their food was delicious everything it was amazing about that trip and just want to say that like if you're thinking about going away on a couples you know like you're going with your husband or if you want to go with other couples this is a perfect location in my opinion to go it's so easy to get to and it just it felt romantic however when it's Christmas time though they have so many things for the family so that's what I mean if you just go at certain times when maybe the kids are in school if you WanNa just go with your spouse you will feel Lake Jake it's not busy and that's what we experienced even though families are you know are allowed to go and experience the resort as well so I wanNA move on to the resort of petrol so the resorted Petra goal is through a cliff you have to actually go through a tunnel and you once you get on the other side of the the tunnel you feel like you are away from the rest of the world is pretty cool and what I liked about this resort is it Kinda nfl isolated but in a good way and I don't know it's funny there's is really huge gates to get into the beginning of where you're going to go into the tunnel and Tad was saying it felt late Jurassic Park it's like these huge gates like leading you in and it was just really exciting and one thing about resort of Patrick all is is has a a restaurant that people will come to even if they're not staying on the property and you can do that so even if you're saying it any of the other resorts that mentioning if you wanted to go to this restaurant and I am so not good at Spanish I did not major in Spanish but it's L. folly on so it's F. A. R. A. L. L. O. N. so you don't pronounce pronounced ells and that's what that's what gets me every time and it's pretty much seafood to table so you're eating what they caught that day and it was such a great experience so I'm GonNa walk you guys through this experience again if you do not stay at this resort you can go to this restaurant so it was built into the cliff and you go up into the cliff and you go to where this cases where all the fish for the day that they have gotten and is what you can order so you pick which fish you want and then you pick the size that you want to go with it and you also pick your appetizers before are you even sit down at your table which I thought was pretty interesting so you can actually see all the different kinds of fish so I picked lobster and so I could see the lobster but I could see all the other or fish for the day which is pretty neat versus just reading a menu and trying to guess what it looks like they're going over it with you so they do it in small groups so for tonight it was just happened to be him and at that moment so we really got one on one attention and they're just going through how the fish tastes if it's fishy if it's not fishy if it's flaky if it's very you know if there's a lot of flavor to it I thought that was really fun and then just ordering your appetizer and then your sides to go along along with it then they see you and the view is amazing I mean you're pretty much on the cliff to the point that the water comes up and hits the rocks you may we get a little missed on your face that's how close you are so it is really gorgeous and I mean just looking at the water and having this delicious meal that in itself is worth going to the sort of petrol even if you're not staying there and then you get a desert so it's part of the meal like you're paying for the the fish that you're getting there's prices on the chalkboard behind and then and then the size and appetizer all like comte into that price ace and the desert is all part of that as well and so they bring out there was like three different choices of desert that you got at the end it was really fun and you get a bread basket it's really delicious is a great experience and so going back to resort Patrick although one thing I really really loved about it is their balconies he's all have plunge pools and they run the length of the patio so can you picture that you're looking out your patio to the ocean and there is a rock tangle plunge pool that is running from left to right I mean that's insane it's amazing it's not even upgrade all of them have it which is so cool because some of the other places that I went to plunge pools but it's an upgrade you had to spend more so that's that was my favorite thing about resort metrical the rooms are really big so was montage and I let me back up and sorry to be all over the place montage one of the favorite things that I loved about their room is it had an outdoor shower so you walk into this humongous bathroom and then you see this shower at the very end and it's outside so it's all glass and but you open the glass door and you are outside so to be able to take it outdoor shower and you're in your private room I don't know it just feels really fun and it just like a really neat feature that I truly enjoyed so let's go back to resort Patrick O. Eight let me say this about montage montage their decor is very very modern I do like it's a very clean lines it does not feel like Mexico it it does to me feel like the desert so if that's the kind of look you like in the static or aesthetic matters to you that something to pay attention to and I'm going to put pitchers in the show notes that you guys can see one I'm talking about and also if you do follow me on instagram you can see where I posted the pictures and maybe get an idea but I don't know if I posted the bedrooms for all of them so I will do that in the show notes okay so going back to resort patrick all their rooms feel very Mexican so it feels like traditional Mexico and it has all those different colors and it's really exciting and festive and definitely not modern so if that's not your jam that might not be the place is that you want to go so it feels very fun and their bathroom was humongous the rooms humongous the balcony is huge everything is amazing and a funding that they do is they they will bring you chips and Guacamole and to coronas before dinner which I thought was really cool and they give you a Tequila a bottle of Tequila in this really pretty the it's almost like a porcelain bottle the blue and white bottle And I just thought that was really cool so to be able to get that you know those little extras extras they really make a difference and I will say montage because it was our university when we walked in they had a bottle of champagne for us and they had this beautiful chocolate cake with gold flecks in it saying happy anniversary and I just thought that was awesome and the cake was so delicious and I I will say that I think todd was eating it for breakfast one day so I'm GonNa throw him under the bus for that just joking he can get away with that he can get away with eating cake at breakfast he has a fast metabolism so anyway so sorry to be bouncing back and forth it just jogged my memory so going back to resort Patrick all loved the balcony it was amazing they have ah they have adult pools as well as well as a family pool so I think it's great my opinion with petrol I probably wouldn't do a family family vacation there to me it feels more of an adult only not to say that there won't be kids there but that's just my feeling that I would just I would go with my spouse versus bringing the kids so just to give you an idea okay and then the other thing that's cool about it is it's right by marina and so it's safe enough to walk down to the Marina we did not have time but if we had time what they would do is drive you down in the tunnel to the gate and then you can watch the marina and we totally would have done it I felt comfortable enough to do and that's it's what I think is neat that I felt comfortable to be able to do those things if I had more time staying at the resort like for the whole week so then I'm going to move onto Grand Velez grand villas this is the only resort that I went to you that was all inclusive now this is where I send my clients when they say to me that they want a five star all inclusive -clusive with amazing food amazing drinks amazing customer service grand villas is what comes to mind so they have one in Revere Maya Cabos Cabos and Puerto Vallarta and the Kabo location was added world so this is where I'm going to tell you I felt that it felt like why why they have so many palm trees there will I let me back up for a second when you get in the lobbies gorgeous but you walk in and they give you a little neck massage like they get this little central oil and and she does her two minutes feels amazing I mean you WanNa fall asleep I I mean I don't know and they do that all located at all the locations for Grand Palace and that's one of the things that I really love about them I usually don't tell my clients I am giving you that sneak peek I usually usually don't tell them because I kind of want them to be surprised so it was fun to experienced that firsthand okay so I walk in and they're like three huge each pools like when you look down when you're looking at the ocean you just see these three huge infinity pools and there's the one for the adults and that's at the very every front so that's closest to the beach and the ones behind our where it's kid friendly family friendly and all that kind of stuff so what I loved about grand umbrellas one. Flu Hawaii I don't know what they've done it because the other places have palm trees to but they had so much more flowers they had like Fuchsia Asia flowers off the balcony and the whole grounds were just lush you would have never known that you were in a desert and it was amazing it was just fun to experience the difference 'cause resort Patrico felt more desert because also in the cliff so there's a lot of rock it was really cool the aesthetic was awesome but it's very different so going Gotcha Granville us if you're wanting an all inclusive you will not go wrong going to grandma's I will tell you that I've had people go to Graham Valves that have gone to an excellence or finance resort and they are like wow this blows them out of the water and they thought that that was a luxury resort and that's what I'm trying explain here that it's hard to explain that unless you've gone there and so what I like about grandma's their rooms are humongous their modern clean clean line again and they have a huge tub with a separate shower the bathroom issues so grand bellis is known for like being very we welcome to families and so I can see how you could have families coming and this would be the most amazing trip to the point that I took a tour and and they showed me a room that was set up to have a baby so they had the crip set up in there they had all these cute little amenities that could go with the baby you and then they had a little step stool for them to be able to get onto the toilet you know because if you have toddlers they need the little step stool or to get to the sink or to get into to the bathtub and then if you needed this little you know the little tub for the baby inside the big tub it was really cool to be able to see that and so I was like wow they really make it so easy for you to bring your kids they even had little robes for the kids so you see the adult robes which I was experiencing mincing in every resort but then to see little kid robes I thought was so adorable and I could just see my youngest wanting smoothies every day and by being all inclusive you don't have to think about it right you don't have to think about what is the cost and you could be sitting at the pool and enjoying whatever you want and you've already paid for it so for for me I can see where doing the all inclusive at Grand Palace is truly amazing and the food I'm going to tell you the food in my opinion was as good as montage and the result of Patrick also at that point that's the only one that I could compare to and I thought wow oh I am so impressed with the food and the drinks were amazing I'm not a big drinker I will say but they had made an Avocado Margarita and I thought that sounds so weird by going to try because it's their special and I really need to try these drinks because I know that that's what people like to do when they go on advocation personally me I like to drink coffee so I like to have coffee drinks that's my jam I'm like I'm going to try this and it was delicious it was it was amazing and end known for my agency owner that he said that they use top shelf liquor and all that kind of stuff that a lot of the other resorts you will find that just even feel a little bit of your drink you'd have to drink four to five drinks where at Grand Bella you only need to drink one and I didn't even finish mine so anyways it was was delicious though I.

"She normally does two sessions a month and again again episode one twelve is where you're gonNA find how she does the program and explaining all of it to you guys and I just WanNa share this information until I do the series series so that it's not leaving you in the dark and you know I don't want to hold all of this just to myself I want to be able to help all of you moms so let's go to the show hey you guys as I am super excited to do today's episode all about Kabo so if you don't follow me on social media either on Instagram Amber Sandberg or mom inspired spires show or moms for living on facebook you might have missed that we went to Kabul so todd and I went to Kabo in early September we actually celebrated our anniversary anniversary wiler there but it was a work trip What had happened is earlier this spring I had gone to travel dinner here in Nashville and met got some great people that were sales reps for resorts in Kabo and so I worked out a plan that I would go and check out multiple all triple resorts while I'm there now I wouldn't recommend this for the average person because touted I actually got really good at checking in and checking out of the resorts and we pretty much out of our suitcases but I wanted to do this for you guys I wanted to experience several resorts back active back so that I could compare and contrast what I liked about them what stood out to me what I didn't care for so that I could come back and report it all back to you guys now most of the resorts that I stayed at were not all inclusive and I know that there's a lot of people that are all about all inclusive and it's a deal breaker if it's not hot but I do want to say that there's a level of customer service and a level of food quality that you find when you go to an not all inclusive resort now if you wanna go and not think about anything then yes all inclusive is the way to go and I did go to one and it's one of woods arts that I send my clients that truly is a five star resort because a lot of resorts WANNA say that they're five star and they truly aren't into their more a four star and so if you care about that stuff then that really does matter when you were trying to figure out where to stay so I'm going to back back it up and I say that a lot of people that when I say let's go to Mexico because we're going to get their biggest bang for their buck they are concerned with safety and I wanted to be able to go to Kabul was first of all I've never gone to Kabo I've gone to Cancun several times a long time ago Oh and then we have gone 'cause Amal and Puerto Vallarta on a cruise so we were only there for a day and even that that has been a long time so I find that a lot of people from national anyways go to Cancun because it's a pretty easy flight so I wanted to go to Kabo and kind of so you what that experience was like and how it's different than Cancun and how I felt safety wise so that you guys could see that I'm actually going myself Alf and I do feel safe so a few things that I notice going into Kabo we took multiple transportation because husband were going to so many resorts and why I'm saying this is because we weren't just going from the airport to the resort and then we were there for the whole week no we actually had to leave so we took private transportation and taxis we did a combination of both and never did I feel unsafe there was never a time that I thought okay this seems a little sketchy I don't really know I felt completely fine I wouldn't feel any different than travelling in a taxi you in New York City to be honest like and I've been to New York City so I just wanted everybody to know that upfront because I know that that is a big thing about going to Mexico is the safety and before Putin Khanna had any issues recently in the news I had told people that when you go do you really need to stay on the property that you're staying at that these countries you know there's a lot of poverty and I think a lot of people think okay well if they go to Jamaica if they go to Kana or places like that that they're completely fine but anywhere you go there could be dangerous areas Oh yes and so I don't want people to exclude Mexico altogether because of what they've heard on the news so I even went to the point in my podcast cast herself I asked three separate local people in different resorts one of them was two of them were drivers and one of them was our waiter at one of our resorts and so I had asked them what do they feel about the safety in regards to Kabul at least since I was there and they said had they felt Kabul was super safe and they felt that just like anywhere there's dangerous areas just like there's dangerous areas in the United States and and in Kabul wasn't one of them and and I asked him about Cancun and they said that they didn't feel Cancun was dangerous neither was Puerto Vallarta and so it out to me because I said to them I'm like if you were an American the news portrays it that it's just scary altogether and that don't go there and they thought it was interesting that that's what was being portrayed so I really just wanted to dig a little bit deeper to find out what locals thought thought about the safety of being there so I wanted to get that out of the way because they want you to think about that during the whole episode because it doesn't matter how nice the resort is if you're thinking you're not gonNa feel safe so I wanted to get that out of the way and never did I feel that I was in danger and I definitely would bring my girls back there because these resorts are so amazing and even though touted I went by ourselves and that was awesome because there's adult only pools in these resorts there family programs are awesome and I just got thinking to myself migrants with so love this and it would be really fun to experience us so I'm going to start in the order that we wet and I I want to say this too because I've gotten so many people ask me about Kaba once I got back they've seen pictures you don't follow me you can go to instagram handle that's where I post most of my travel pitchers either of my clients or myself and they just were shocked about the landscape of Kabo so if you're not familiar with Kabo it's truly at the very tip of Mexico and so it meets the Pacific Ocean and the see of Cortes and it just feels completely different there are mountains and it's a desert yet at the ocean and so it's a really neat eight atmosphere one thing that stood out to me is I kind of felt like it was a blend of Scottsdale Arizona and Palm Springs California so I've been to both both and it depends on what we're resort that you stay at if they play that upper not so what I found is some of them it really felt like you were in the desert sir and they kind of made you feel that way and I felt like wow is in palm springs but there's an ocean or I felt like I was in Hawaii and so I'm GonNa Start with our first resort sort and it's montage montage has a lot of luxury properties and there's a lot in the United States as well and this was the first time saying in a montage and I have to say that Ah this property truly felt like a palm springs and on the ocean one of the things that's amazing about montage and I'll tell you the other one that has has this as well it's a small mobile beach is one and only so my first and my last resorts that I stayed at swim beaches and this is a big deal if you want to go into the Russian and swim that you can't just do that anywhere in Kabo so montage has a snowmobile beach to the point that people would come in on excursions versions to their beach because it's a little cove so that's why it's protected so the waves are not strong so that's why you can actually go swimming and that is the main reason the reason why you can't swim is because the waves are really strong and the currents really strong so you're protected in this cove and I notice all these is both coming in to do excursions for snorkeling while if you're staying at the montage were and todd loves a snorkel he just went right out and didn't have to go catch an excursion excursion or catch a boat to then have them take them to this area and I just thought if you really love that kind of stuff then it is really important to either stay stay at the montage or one and only todd saw amazing fish and we've been snorkeling and a lot of different places we've been to Bahamas we've been to Maui and he was able to see a puffer fish and all these other different fish I think tank and some other ones he's more into fish than I am and so he was truly impressed impressed also you can go kayaking and you can go paddle boarding which is pretty cool and it's included you don't have to pay an extra cost which I thought was great so what we did is we did a sunrise Kayak tour right out from the montage beach and so that we can see the sunrise however it was a little cloudy so we couldn't see it like how you could see it on a clear day but it was an amazing experience and it was just awesome that it was part of it you didn't didn't have to go catch a bus and then go jump into an excursion and get up at four am we could just get up at six something and then walk down to the beach and then just jump into a kayak which was really cool I also wanted to say to that even though it's a family resort they do have a pool that is adjust for families adults can go in there too but there's an adult only area that's closer to the beach with an infinity pool and if you rent a Cabana Cabana you get your own private little which I thought was amazing so if you're going during a high time and you're kind of like you know what I just WanNa get away a little bit you can totally have this little Cabana Cabana area with your own private which I thought was amazing like I hung out there I was lucky enough to just have they were they they gave it to me so that I could experience it and just see what it feels like and to me maybe you wouldn't do it every day but I would definitely say it's worth renting Capanna for a day the grounds were beautiful you could just walk around and you just felt so peaceful and the pools were gorgeous I mean it was just it was just like a postcard and it just felt like you were really in the desert but with the wider and the ocean and so it was a really cool balance balance of water and desert and mountains I will say about the montage is their customer service is out of this world I mean now that I could compare all the resorts I could see where they really went above and beyond so if you care about customer service then you may want to go due to the montage like that might be high on your list so when you think about like you go to Nordstrom and Customer Services Amazing even though you love target but if you really are Kinda like no I wanna be taken care.

She is going to talk to us about helping kids sleep while we are traveling so you guys know that I'm a travel agent, and I love sending families on trips and stuff like that. But we know that it's not always easy to get the kids to sleep when traveling right? You either have time change or just a new environment. And you might be all in one room and it can just be really challenging. So I thought it'd be great to have on. Specially when this episode is airing it will be summertime and I just know that people are traveling to see family or they're going up occasions.
