"Over again? Of course, people are going to get product fatigue. It just happens across the board. Now, let's stick with you Sawyer because I want you to take this home for us. What is the one thing you really want to make sure fire nation gets from everything that we talked about here today? We talked about a lot of great stuff. A lot of great tactics and strategies that you guys employed. What do you want to make sure our listeners really walk away with? The best ways that we can connect with you and crumble any call to action you have. And then we'll say goodbye. Well, there's so many things. But the first thing that came to mind is don't skimp on quality, whether that's through the service or the product. And I think when we first started out, there were multiple companies trying to compete with us. And me and Jason would always have many conversations talking about let's not focus on them. Let's focus on us and make sure we have the absolute best quality that we can because if we have high quality and we're using the best ingredients and we're focusing ourselves and we're just moving forward, people will come. They will naturally come organically come and they will return. And I feel like we truly do have the best cookies, the best technology and the best service in the industry. And we will continue to move forward and keep that number one spot because of our quality. And I think you have to have that to be successful. Jason, I have one question for you. When are you opening up a crumble and Porto RICO? That's a great question. I don't have anything to announce today. That might be a little sooner than you think John. Oh, well that makes me really exciting. I'm going to talk to you about locations afterwards because I guess my idea is for you. Anything Jason do you want to say on that same topic that Sawyer just shared and then also give us the best way that we can connect with your company and then we'll say goodbye. I think I just want to echo what source said, we're out on a mission to bring friends and families together over the best box of cookies in the world. And focusing on quality and focusing on yourself has paid back in spades and in dividends. While people are sometimes chasing their competitors, we always say our number one competitor is our self and yesterday, and we got a beat ourselves tomorrow. And I think that's one thing that will always continue to focus on as being better every day, putting the best quality service, technology.

"App experience. And we made it possible for people to come to the store or to the cookies, see the whole experience and have them rate delivered to their car. Right before everyone was trying to figure out, how does this work? Or how are we going to do curbside? We executed in two weeks and our sales went through the roof. People just knew that they could order it. They felt safe. And it was really, really fun to watch. So I think when you own your own technology stack, you can leverage it during key moments. In your company, history. So I think that was one thing that we were able to do quickly that was successful. And so it's something to call out though John is we're not just a bakery where a tech driven bakery. And just like Jason said, we can be innovative and adapt and turn on a dime where we need to be able to adapt to the market, especially recently during the pandemic. Something that Jason said over and over again and Sawyer said a few times as well is experience fire nation. I really want you to understand the power of that. A lot of cookie stores or other stores that are similar. They may be just thinking about the product. How can we just get the product into the person's hand as soon as possible, get them out the door, quick turnover, blah, blah, blah. Jason and swear are just like, hey, how.

"Sawyer say what's up to fire nation and share something that you believe about becoming successful, the most people disagree with? What's up fire nation? This is Sawyer. Now something I believe that has made our brands successful me personally successful is to not be afraid to go after something, even if you're not experienced. Now, in the cookie world, we had nothing. No knowledge, not as much as we would have liked, diving into the cookie world. But we weren't afraid. And so I think a lot of people may think you can't do something because you don't actually have an expertise in that field or that career. But anything can be learned and I think because me and my business partner Jason weren't afraid to just go after it. And we had a dream and a vision. It really made us successful and through all of our failures, we found that success. Well, fire nation, you just heard Sawyer mentioned his partner Jason. And we did talk about in.

Farmers get up with the sun exactly. But you don't do you. I i do not know what well. Here's the thing. All right i get up at the sun and after the civil war most people in america live on farms even agricultural life. And what's gonna happen throughout the day. Jr is that we're gonna go from eighteen. Sixty the united states has an urban population of just over six million people. By the time you get to nineteen hundred got over thirty million people living in cities it's gonna take a while they're going to be nineteen twenty before more people live there throughout the day. You really find a situation in which you end up with. Tens of millions of people who've never lived in a world of the city and this is going to change not just the way they work but the way they perceive the world around them and the relationship to nature. So if you think about this farmers as you said they get up what when the sun comes up. That's not a time right. And how long do they work until the sun goes down or until the work done one of the other right..

"Okay okay. Yeah that makes sense okay. So sawyer as a consumer out horton. Is that to you on out. Say it's fairly important. Suing like would company actually stands for in kinda like lawrence said what your money is going to at the end of the day. So that's kind of important for me. And i also like to see like them taking a stand but also having a course of action that the company executes in puts out in gives their employees not pretending to be a part of or even the community could be a part of mc help them with their cause or something that took a stand on so this can really change the world on. I think it would definitely be a big benefit for the world if all these big fortune five hundred or major companies and even small companies were all like being transparent and taking a stand for what was right and then having plans of action and being able to execute an having everybody pitch in to do the right thing. Make a lot of change you are. I completely agree. I think it's like i don't want to sound like a broken record. But it's all about transparency for me especially from like sawyer said the fortune five hundred companies like to know where their loyalties lie in away Just so you're more conscious individual and society. Yeah yeah do you feel like your Peers And classmates may you know teachers. Do you feel like your community cares about this too. I think sarah how the to and what kind of actions are different today versus maybe five years ago and i know you guys were You're you're young enough that five years ago to you as a whole entirely different phase of your lives right and whereas like five years for me is like a lot different. When you're you know in your fifties that Can you look back and see like an evolution of this growing in importance for people. Yes no. I think it's kind of the environment to that. You put yourself in But i do think every day. There is an increasing Not urgency but an increasing awareness. I agree with that too especially on like social media. I feel like. I've started to see a of people like doing donation stuff on their stories for a cause that they're sorority fraternities. Doing her like their own personal thing. I've seen that a lot more.

"Taking care in business This week i'm not going to do my usual of hello sawyer. How you doing because our guest. This week includes Sawyer and another guest. Lauren higginbotham who is Our new intern so just to go back and kind of Let everyone know taking care of business as our fourth year. I guess it is and We've always had someone Acting as our producer but this was the first season the first year we actually had our producer. Be an intern. And it's worked out really gray and it came about because we used to tape a w. f. y. Which is a Our npr station here in indianapolis and we would go into the studio and we would tape several episodes and then he in that that freelance producer would edit them but over the pandemic. We started to take things over the phone and you know. We still taped in bulk. But i was also rebranding. The podcast at the time and i got to thinking that i know that people take their podcast literally on their phone. I know people take them in home studios. And i thought there's gotta be a way to make the simpler and so especially because of the pandemic and so Started looking for a producer. Thought it'd be great to build a relationship with someone that they could be an intern and they could be an inter maybe second time and then eventually become the full time. Know producer of the podcast. Meaning that they're they're employed by the podcast. And so that was the hope and the dream was sawyer. We're going to talk a little bit more about that. And then as that was developing Balsam group the company that i Which is a marketing agency here. In indianapolis we were having our team treats taking care and businesses. Kind of a client And so the staff of ulsan group was doing the marketing for the podcast and during the rebrand. I decided that what i really wanted was to have taken care and business run separate and apart so that That i could really let my team. Bolson group focus on the bulletin group clients and have taken care and business via a separate entity. I wanted to really be a part of that But also give that opportunity to an intern To learn and grow because podcasting is such a growing industry in like with sawyer develop a long term relationship where i could be flexible with that intern so that they could really use their entrepreneurial skills to to to work independently but collaboratively with the rest of the team and potentially make that an internship that they would do time and time again which would be the consistency for taking care of business but would also afford them. The opportunity to continue to get that experience while experiencing other interns- internships at the same time. And so i feel like after a pretty big search that i found a perfect person for that as well. Her name is lauren higginbotham. She's gonna join us today and so we're going to kind of talk through their background and and what they do for the podcast and kind of the You know inside view if you will taking care of business while also getting what i believe is really important perspective which is This generation went to see us are mean to them How does that you know. Perhaps differ from my generation. Which is you know just I mean i'm old enough to be both of their their moms back. Their parents are probably my age. And i have children. That are their age. And so it's just a great dialogue. That i love having with my own kids and so it'll be fun to to do that and record it and let our listeners. Kinda here from two people who are working in That of corporate social responsibility. You know industry if you will And how they view it and how their peers view it. So welcome you guys. That was quite the introduction. That was giving my background. And now when i wanted. Do each of you introduce yourselves. And i guess we'll start with with you sawyer. Why don't you tell us a little bit about your background and In what's going on in your your life because yes some pretty exciting things going on the So as a lot of a lot of the listeners. now i'm sawyer.

First of all the fact that he had to throw in janet jackson in there at the end like an ad lib like. She deserves her own apology. You ruined her career to sweetie and he never said what.

So there's so much to this interview in fact like after that whole terrible quote from the governor that said i could shoot britney spears diane sawyer to that was something along the lines of well. You've really you know. Made it very hard for a lot of mothers. Wasn't that bad is governor's wife. That's who needs apologize her up unless she's not here or anything like that. But that's what needs to apologize. Get up off. Diane's she's a reporter. She was at a man's world back there. She had to be tough and nobody asked him barbara. Walters apologize but nothing. I'm just i'm done. She had to be tough. 'cause he was week we wouldn't even know her name. Right now feels different. So say you're part because i like when this talk all that i looked up the interview and listen. I'm going to say it's a reflection of the times. It's how we attacked women at that time. It just the things that diane was allowed to say to britney without even a second glance is absolutely appalling. It would never happen in two thousand twenty one. I don't believe she pulled out. Magazine articles Showing brittany and about how she was sexy. And all these things brittany said jaylo does it. Christina aguilera does it. Is it a big deal. Because will you have the connection with the. It's all making her feel guilty on top of that. This is another question. She asked this twenty one year old. She said but you said. I've only slept with one person in my whole life two years into my relationship with justin and yet he's left the impression that you weren't faithful that you betrayed the relationship she's enquiring. How many people britney has slept with questioning her on her virginity on on her sexual relations. That is insanely inappropriate. What she was grown twenty one twenty two. She was grown. She gets grown questions asked at the time she was sixteen. That i would say okay. You a little rough. But she's twenty one years old. You just talked to my nieces. That's what you've been doing your. Sat results long doesn't matter ranger national television. You're asking this young girl to to tell you. All of our sexual secrets and intimate affairs of a relationship overly scrutinized at that time anyways everything she did. This is cobbled reporter year to get the information. It is up to you to answer. Not her publicist should advisor this. You get out of the hard question ooh brennan. Actually i will say handles herself really well. But i think diane sawyer i promise you i truly believe diane sawyer looks back at that interview and cringes bring something. Go through saying if i could do this over again. I would have. Maybe still grilled her but in a much more appropriate way. I think for diane sawyer. Look we have to remember. This was diane's thing. John was known as if you're a celebrity. And you're in hot water. You go sit with diane. Do the tough interview and if you get through it your career is back. Don't forget this is in two thousand. And three a year. After diana whitney houston in she spent two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year on crack. So you gregory speier's just gonna walk into diane sawyer interview and not be hit with the hard questions. It's a little bit much. It's like somebody saying. Oh i didn't know that howard stern was going to ask me about my sex life. I didn't know my family businesses. We're going to be out of mari povich. It's the town though. It's the town that diane takes with britney. Is it just brittany or does he take it with everyone that i can say. We have an we you. She asked whitney straights her face. Do you spend two hundred thousand dollars. We also cracked that one. I want you to feel guilty for your sex life. I want you to feel guilty for your sexual the way you dress. I want you to feel guilty for your responsibility to be this perfect positive as we received it. I don't think she meant that. I think she was just doing a job. That no one else would do. Because i don't know if i would ask brittany that. I don't think i'm that type of person that i can really ask the hard questions if somebody wants to be an open book. They can't be listening wearing the world now of reality. Television people talked about sex they. They'll they'll open the the open it up. They tell it on their own but back then especially a young girl like that to put the pressure on her to try to be the. We still put the pressure on people stars to be the perfect examples especially when they started like disney princess. And then try to move on to something older but she was twenty one at this point at this point when miley cyrus still got like a big backlash whenever she tried to become more sexualize. However we have let it

What's the deal with Framing Britney Spears on HBO?
"Framing britney. This documentary had everyone above this weekend. I watched it last night. Kind of inbetween. Basically i'll be honest. I started watching it after the halftime show During the superbowl. 'cause i didn't really care at us home with my family and i wasn't like at a party or betting or anything but i'll get super bowl too but first of all Of course we've all heard about free brittany. Which has been this movement that her fans kinda started. There's been you know articles podcast and everybody talking about it. Of course. I follow her along with twenty seven other million people on instagram. And it's been weird. It's been weird watching her this last year. You gotta watch it. It's on lure fx. But it's just really they kind of just go through her whole career with in two hours which could have been. You know an eight part series. I think and we all remember when she came up. It was the mickey mouse club. And then all of a sudden she was really sexy. I remember when Shawn and marlon wayans were hosting the mtv awards and she came out and she did her sexy that goes with the snake and their joke which they came off came up with on the spot which is a great story is from minnie mouse club to the strip club and it was one of the funniest lines ever but now in watching that you're like wow you know this. This girl was suffering We made her suffer because we did jokes like this. We are obsessed with her sexuality. Diane sawyer was you look back at that interview which they featured and really putting her in the hot seat you know. Jay leno Doing jokes about her. We did jokes better. When chelsea lately started we. It was a great time for late night. Television also. Because right around that time the writers guild strike happened and we weren't writers guild so we were the only Late night show that got to stay on air. Every day was britney spears story. And it i. It just seemed like she was going. You know kinda fun crazy like she disliked to gas stations a lot and walk around barefoot and the paparazzi. Were there at the time. Because at that time there was no instagram. And that is how paparazzi and magazines made money is to get the shots of brittany. Brittany was the highest paid celebrity photos and then of course she married Kevin federal line but it was all just email. I just remember being doing chelsea lately and there was talk. We'll her kids taken away. And i remember sitting there going. There's no way she's going to lose custody of her kids. Come on i mean very few mothers do and she's she's going through a little struggling time but it's mostly because these paparazzi's are falling everywhere. Well you guys probably know this then. The dad got a conservative ship. And a lot of people after watching this special. This documentary said where was the mom. Why wouldn't the mom because parents divorced at that time. Try to get the conservative ship. Jamie her father was in and out of jobs Former drug addict. I believe maybe not drug out excessively alchoholic and So why would he be the person in charge. The thing is is. I think he was the first one to go to lawyers and try to get this into the works. And she was in a fifty one fifty at a mental institution when all this paperwork was done and the judge signed it. And now it's been you know fifteen years or something that this has been going on for and right away after this was done she started doing sitcoms again. Of course shortly after that she got her residency and she was making three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a night doing that show and then she left planet hollywood. And she now she's gonna do another huge residency at this new stage that they built her at the mgm and they do this big livestream thing and she comes up and then she just like and walks off talking to talk to reporters. She's not going to say anything. She's not going to do a song and shortly after that. She did it announcement saying my father is sick. And i'm not going to be performing. I'm going to put this residency off and that was really bizarre. People like is he sick. And i really don't know what the now looking back. I'm like i really don't know if he was sick of that was just her way out because now it looks like she in fact knew that the only way to get out of this conservatorship get her freedom back from her father was to stop working and stop making money and i. I would love to see what happened the day she was like you know what what the hell am i doing. Aren't going to sign up for another two or three year contract with them performing every night making all this money which. I don't get to choose how i want to spend the money. I don't get to get in the car and drive. I don't get to make a reservation and stay in hawaii on a whim without checking with twelve other people. Screw this you know. And she goes to her place in malibu during covert or wherever she is. Jesus been doing these weird instagram posts. Where her voice has changed. It's not the same voice. You're seeing these interviews on the documentary. And she's like ok guys. I've heard that a lot of been wondering what i'm going to do for the new year one. I'm gonna try to finish a pilates class to. I'm gonna try to meditate three. I'm going to try to eat better. And for i'm going to try that ice cream diet. And when she's doing it she's like it. Looks like she's definitely reading it whether it's a cue card but somebody else's there and the fact that she said i heard you guys not having reading your comments and one thing in the new year you guys asked me was Of course photos are weird. The makeup soy's like various mudgee. She's always wearing these crop tops. Sometimes she's dancing and you know i just really hope that I hope the mother gets involved. I hope that that the judge is able to watch this. Because i think when the judge granted this he was watching all the crazy news everyday. Let's just like the rest of us and this weird sam. Lufti was after an eye at the time. I was four the conservative ship. I'm like gosh. I don't want other people to take advantage of it this way. You know the data's there the other people are there to make sure that she stays healthy. No weirdos get around her. She's able to have visitation with her boys. But now after all these years it does seem really wrong and I think that this is going to be the catalyst to make whatever judges involved to open his eyes and maybe reconsider This conservative ship for

"This wild new documentary. It's by the new york. Times which is quite surprising that they get into this tabloid gossipy world right hold framing britney spears and it really really focuses on her life. It's only seventy five minutes. It's worth watching. But there's certain things that are said in this documentary that today has britney's fans demanding. Justin timberlake owes her apology. Remember when they broke up. I was back in two thousand and three. Diane sawyer did an interview with britney and she really asked us some sharp questions saying the following quote. You broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain so much suffering. What did you do. Britney sort of fumbled the answer. Here she was still very young and she said there's two sides of a story technically just it's not wrong but technically he's not right either now fans that manning that just in owes her an apology. Did you watch this documentary. Yes ruptured and this is the case of. You know britney spears has very passionate fans and rightfully so just as many artists do but to say you know just to know for what though again it like britney said even though there's two sides to the story you and i both know there's three there's there's there's there's hers and then the little mix of both but of course britney fans jump to like nope just a an apology just got. Justin got trolled this weekend. Justin timberlake got troll this weekend. To where janet jackson fan say can't believe just didn't justin timberlake was a part of ruining two of the biggest pop careers ever janet jackson and britney spears like just literally sitting at home doing nothing right now in hebrew.

New report on Apple’s VR headset: 8K in each eye, potential $3,000 price tag
"Myanmar's new military government ordered that local telecoms temporarily blocked facebook owned services in the country from midnight on february third through february seventh claiming that the platform was contributing to instability the digital rights nonprofit access now estimates that there are twenty two million facebook users in the country. A new report by canada's privacy commission found clear view is facial recognition database to be illegal mass surveillance and said sent a letter of intention to the company telling it to cease sevices in the country and delete canadian faces. Clearview has not operated in canada since july due to the investigation and says it will allow canadians to opt out of the database. But we'll challenge the determination in court analyst. Ming she quos on a bit of a roll this week. The latest from quo is word of another lend supplier for the main next gen. Iphone perhaps called the iphone thirteen. That's expected next year and it's camera. Quo says that sunny optical successfully passed apple's approvals process for ipad lenses and are likely to be approved to make the main camera lens for the iphone. Thirteen lineup currently logon eugene. Guang and can cut.

Diversion of cosmos. Cosmo's that's a network comprised of many independent blockchain's and calls itself the internet of blockchain's so just you'd have no concerns and just jumping on an open block chain from from china winter no tom sawyer. Red flags there. I mean the state information center is part of the deal. I don't know what you'd be worried now all right. Let's talk a little more about that. A little more about the information given some some details on apple's alleged upcoming mixed reality headset sources have more details including a rendering this time of what they say is apple's vr headset. A lot of the details are similar to what we heard from mark gurman of bloomberg earlier last month It's expected to use fabric. Mesh run on an apple design chip cost a lot. Although we've got a number as much as three thousand dollars the headset may have more than a dozen cameras for hand. Tracking lied are sensors for room. Mapping and a are affects dual eight k displays and i tracking to save battery life. The information sources says apple would use aided rendering. that's when you only render in full resolution. What your eyes are looking at everything. In the periphery can be a little lower sources. Say apple has not finalized input control but the options. They're considering are a combination of hand tracking i tracking a dial on the headset or something. They call a thimble like accessory. Oh boy well the thing that jumped out to me. I because we have talked about this before. This rumor has been swirling. I mean really for years but it seems to be more of a reality than ever. Is that three thousand dollar price points now again. It's a rumor and yes. Apple tends to make things that are similar to other products that are more expensive and then says but it's apple so you know we can do that sort of thing. Three thousand dollars. Oh my goodness Compare that to oculus to for three hundred dollars. That's a crazy price point. I don't know how the company could get away with such a thing.

Connie Chung Compares Diane Sawyer & Barbara Walters to Tonya Harding
"Okay. You guys connie just went off on some huge star. She even said working with. Dan rather was like a scene out of psycho. It's what she said about barbara and diane. That really shocked. Watch when i went to. Abc news on joined with both barbara. Walters and diane sawyer there. And i thought oh this could be great. It'd be you know three women get along. It's not unlike what what tonya harding. Nancy kerrigan both. Diane and barbara were in the same sort of arena of trying to get these big interviews so when i tried to go after them i was told i could not i had to stand down. Really alcon said that on originals with andrew. Gelman podcast. What did you guys. I think when you heard this not surprised that we just had this conversation right before we went live. I feel like everyone during this pandemic is sort of losing it a little bit and i feel like connie everyone's coming for barbara lately in the past year like all of her secrets everything about her. Everyone's ready to spill. But like i don't know. I'm not surprised at all. Feel like this extremely competitive world extremely competitive for women extremely competitive of that time. Robber was already a legend diana. I think you don't hear that that much about it. Seems like that answer. Everybody wants to have over at thanksgiving but those are always the ones career. don't cry. She will never forget that vibe from her. She always just seems like such a lover. We have to remember like we're talking about five years ago. Yeah it any industry as a minority myself. Sometimes you're made to feel like there's only room for one and when somebody is telling you that or making you feel that way you start to believe it so of course barbara and die. It's like oh look at chung coming in here. Seventeen years younger than them. Yeah right so in your mind you probably are thinking. Oh they brought this hotshot into replace us at. I'm not gonna let that happen. And i think i think women do it a lot. I think black people do it a lot. When they're minority a workspace. I think gay people do it. A lot. And i both black and gay so i feel double on on the storm from but sometimes i feel like for me. It's like if i'm the only one here. Let me just open the door for somebody to comment after me. Yeah no i love mentality but you know what it's not even just the stars themselves not just dinosaur. You're not just barbara walters. Sometimes it's the atmosphere that's created around the absolutely actual office like there's some things i mean. The fact that connie was told that. I'm sure she was told that by a producer and maybe that direct order came from something that barbara had said or diane had said in the past but i feel like there's a better check system nowadays i feel like you can check stars a little bit more than you could back been

Part and David was such a good sport to when he's busily trying to meet his production schedule to stop everything and reblock casino included. One of the things. I like that you were talking about is seeing the original star Trek, which I know is one of the series that influence you on Blu Ray. I gotta ask you what you feel about the redone special effects that take put on the on the first sees. You know I had very mixed feelings when they set out to do that. I can understand why they did that. Those special effects you know the only way to do special effects back then was to constantly re expose the film and every time. A new layer film processing you add another layer grain, and so you end up with these very very grainy dirty shot, and even on you know just a thirty two inch CRT. They were starting to look pretty crappy in HD. They look unbelievably that as you can see yeah, look at the end in credit of any of the remastered episodes, and they show an effect shot and Kinda. Oh, yeah! They had to do something. What they did was very respectful by and large I think they resisted in most cases the HEM tation to go in and do things other than what the original creators intended. a little bit of ret con retroactive continuity funds. They keep leading up the impulse of act of the Primary Hall Act as a Saucer, they glow bright red. Why because the motion pictures? The impulse engines were illuminated, but you know when Matt Jefferies designed that beautiful looking starship, he didn't mean for there to be too big rate red lights on the back of the saucer drawing. You're on in a lot of things. That wasn't the way he wanted to direct your eye aesthetic that model. That was an incorrect change I think when they made the bullying ship. Look like they're all the ships from star, Trek enterprise sort of mutable crystalline things they'd been in the original building web that was not necessary, not appropriate, but by and large. It looks spectacular. I think they've done a great job. The episodes hold up the you know as a writer I. always come back, so that's a really good script is what counts everything?

Is about the elevator pitch for the high concept of the log line region in one exotic mean? William, Gibson Meets William Gibbs there are in fact to fame as writers happen to share the same name, one is William Gibson who wrote neuromancer mental cyberpunk novel came up twenty five years ago, nineteen eighty four. Wow, and the other is William. Gibson, the recently deceased playwright who wrote the miracle worker, the story of Helen, Keller blind, and Annie Sullivan her her wonderful teacher, who brought her out of that sensory deprivation, full interactivity with the real world. Well, what is willing to give me? A means my trilogy wake which is out now watch coming soon. Wonder the one I'm reading right now. WWW WAKE! Watching wonders about the World Wide Web gaining conscience. As a single entity, becoming the first truly intelligent non human entity on the planet, and it is born as Helen Helen Keller wasn't born to this, but after eighteen months fell into. Complete sensory deprivation, and it takes a young fifteen year old, blind female math genius. To recognize that something has started to percolate up in the background infrastructure of the World Wide, Web and she decides to do for it. What her hero. Anne Sullivan Helen. Keller's teacher had done or Helen over a century previously. I'm super excited about this project I'm excited about flash forward and I'm glad. Lots and lots of people are reading the novel. You know even more exciting for me than the TV series. So that's very very exciting. Is the current project I'm working? Flash forward was my eleventh novel or a decade ago. These are eighteenth and nineteenth and twentieth novels and I'm just having a blast with the reviews have been great We've had some nibbles about film and TV rights and I'm hoping we'll get some more I think it would make at least as A TV series as, FLASH FORWARD So, would you say your character? Caitlin decker is kind of based a little bit on Helen Keller. She's based on Helen but Moore's shoot faith on any who? Kenny with also blind. That's a an operation that cured her. Blindness never gave a great vision, but a cured or her legal blindness. That kind of is paralleled in week watching wonder, Caitlyn gets an operation that's supposed to cure her blindness early on, and she very much takes on a mentorship or a teaching role the miracle worker in the title of the the Miracle Workers not. Helen Keller, the teacher and Gulligan, and that's who I'm very much taking my central metaphor. For the novel I think it's just one of the great stories. The story of of Helen and Anti Oh just one of the most moving stories you know and it's true in history. And the play the miracle worker in the various adaptations, including probably the best. The film version van crossed had do do absolutely here Jerker, dramatic funny heart-wrenching. Just what a great sort! Out when is when does watch?

"This is James Marsters onsite talk Tony Tomato Robert. Sawyers prolific author subject matter has included dinosaurs. The Internet and time has flash forward, which was once upon a time unique idea for a TV series. Here's my conversation talking about that series. Great to talk to you. It's really a pleasure factually when I used to show in New York. I think my co host. Time reviewed your Farsi. Trilogy as a matter of fact, oh, wow, seventeen years! Very cool. But this is Is it certainly is? It's a great series and I think it's actually the best new series of the season. As far as I'm concerned, who am I to argue written? I really. Do I think the guy down in la or doing amazing job with the material, and really now as far as the development of the series. How close contact did you have with the producers Brannon Braga and Davis Goya. Before even they acquired the rights Brannon Braga David Goya and Jessica Goemaere and I sat down in Los Angeles a- to discuss how it would be that they might adapt my novel those very unusual. The standard thing is that abor were sign so that you can do whatever you want to the source material. That's not the way these guys work. They wanted to make sure that I was going to be pleased on board and supportive of how they intended to adapt the book. And it was a wonderful meeting. I must say just an incredibly creative and exciting events, the down with these guys and hear them say okay. You know we all love the book. That's why we're sitting. But here are some modifications or or re-emphasizing that we think might be appropriate for the transition translation to a different medium, and you could argue with these guys not because. They grow with no argument they would. They were wide open to suggestion, but because they were right, and they had bought through what needed to be done for television, which had been the furthest thing from my mind, when I was advising awful all those years ago, so it was. Very positive right from the outset and right through to the present day I, felt very much involved in the process just two days ago. David gave me a call on the phone for half an hour. periodically facts. My fax machine hums with pages from La or Email questions, or whatever it is, and I participate and help out as much as I can. Leading up to the fact that of course I'm writing the seventeenth episode of the first season, and we'll be diving in with both feet that then that's GonNa. Be Cool. It's can be very very cool that certainly to their credit. I mean I remember, Brannon Braga doing those great time travel and alternate history stories for Star Trek the next generation so. brandon is five years younger than so. He won his Hugo. Award Chronologically before I did and a younger age than I wouldn't mind when the best novels you go work for Hominids. He won his go for all good things, yeah! Three parts series finale for Star Trek the next generation, and you know wonderful piece of work that dealt with flashing back and forth through time as you well remember yeah, and he also of course, co-authored first contact, which clearly that the next generation. Star Trek now, so yeah, he brought a real. The aired with this kind of time travel time paradox. sub-genre the project and the latest that he was part of them. Yeah, and David Escort, who's done such great work in the past including Co authoring the to Batman films that are just totally reinvigorated that characters. Exactly you know here I am a guy with a novel and of course I'm not going to get to adapt. That's just not the way it works in Hollywood and Hollywood. It's all about what your track record is in that particular artform will mine in having screenplays telephone as produced in zero so obviously I was going to be the guy writing the script, but who could i. Desire. To have doing the adaptation. You're looking just mentioned that David or he did not create that Bob Kane created that. David gave the best adaptation of that man for a new medium that we ever see Renan Braga did not create star Trek Gene Roddenberry created star Trek, but he gave us some of the best adaptations of the Star Trek idea that we'd ever seen wonderful wonderful work, so if you're trying to come up with as a as a novelist, the Dream Team of people. You might turn your baby over to. It'd be hard to come up with a list of names than than Brannon Braga Dave. And now Marc Guggenheim of course who heavily involved in adapting green lantern. To. Motion Pictures is now on board as well and again bringing that really respectful understanding of the source material while. Being fully cognizant of what needs to be done, and they work in different Different space the different media to bear. Well one thing that is, it's evident in the casting of the leads, but also the secondary characters enter tasks are also well cast as well. It's a top notch all the way through. Oh! It's an amazing CAF. I mean we've got. Shakespeare shows define the most recent episode that aired as you and I talked Black Swan, number four. Yeah, you know, a Libya is he's Ingmar about being the Shakespeare of the? Joke without even inside everybody knows that are lead actors best known for not just playing Shakespeare in that film but her Shakespearean. Role How do you get a guy like Joe? Pine to star in a TV series and the answer is you give them what every actor want, which is an opportunity to stretch, chose not America and he's playing in American shows not. He's playing how? Does not a cop he's not used to I shouldn't say not used to, but not as known for contemporary role. We give him contemporary role. An FBI agent and American guy is You know roughing people There's a scene that's already been shown in trailers. where JOE roughed up. Jack Davenport now Jack Davenport is a way bigger, guys and Joe Fine. It's a wonderful part for jody. Get the play. Of course he wants a final board or something like that. You look at John Joe. Best known for Harold and Harold and Kumar and for the guy who can get the parking brake off the enterprise. Abrams Star Trek.
