"This is something that we're hoping for however, the problem. Is that right now? The system is based on age indicators, and we cannot go back to that system. We need to be dismantle some deconstruct that system and do a reset, and so, what does the reset really mean? What can it look to us and other advocates as well the reset look like a whole new system that is not based on age indicators. It should be based on readiness indicators, and so, what is your indicator writing? This indicator is based on whether the young person at this point of turning eighteen is ready to be independent and. And if they're not what are some indicators to show US up there being prepared to be able to go into the community, but himself to be independent and successful some indicators can be having a better social support system, and this is not just about the number of people around them. It's about the quality of people around them as well for ambitious young people for example one of the things that I've heard from indigenous young people to Pacific is that when they're in the child welfare system, they seldom are connected to elders who are able to provide elder ship and knowledge keepers and so. Our our and business young people connected before the age of as well Another thing is, have they been? You know assisted with documentation. That's important, not every young person within the child. welker system is a Canadian citizen, and we often forget that there are people without status in limbo status Reggie status, and so we do not want to cut off. From the child welfare system and happened goes to community without status. So how are we supporting people in terms of getting that documentation done? Using this as a moment, you see this as an opportunity, this is a crucial vital moment where we can really make impactful meaningful change and not just go back the system that was never working. This has been an ongoing issue. People have been homeless or aging out of the system I. Know People who have died aging out of the system. We need change right now, and we cannot afford to go back to a system in terms of. In terms of supporting young people Ontario's children. We need something different. We need something based on readiness and not age indicators, and we need something that really legislates and really incorporate kindness and quote. Unquote love what we're doing. When we treat people like family, we do not feel them. Through this moment it feels as though some things are being revealed, and we're learning about parts of society that perhaps people were not aware of or they took some of those systems for granted now whether it comes to income whether it comes to how we treat people who are temporary foreign workers, or who is in the child welfare system, and how they're treated as they age, this is one of those learning opportunities will see whether it seized upon China's good to speak with you about the thank you.

"Fiona Kingsley Boyer. She's thirty two years old for some Scarborough Ontario abused. She was pregnant with her second child. When she was six months pregnant she started to notice that her legs and she was really itchy so just like any sort of expecting parents she went online? She searched up her symptoms and she read a one point that this was a normal symptom of being pregnant so she didn't think much about it one day. She was eating her doctor just regular checkup and he had noticed a lump on on her neck. So this is when Fiona I started to really freak out a little bit. She had a little bit internal panic. She went online again to see what this lump could mean and her doctor center to the to the Er that weekend right away to x-ray waited a few days and doctors told her that she did have cancer cancer. She was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and because she was pregnant. Her first question was okay. Well what happens to my child. What happens to this baby and is the baby? Ok you know one thing that really struck me when I was speaking to. Her is even though. She was diagnosed with cancer. The only thing that she was thinking about was her own child so because of her diagnosis. She was induced a month early and she had to start chemotherapy two weeks after after giving birth she actually wasn't allowed to be around her newborn in those first few weeks and as a parent. That's one of the hardest things I think for anyone specifically but if you're already going through such a traumatic experience in your own life and suddenly you know you give birth and you can't even be around your child. That's one of the biggest things all these parents talk to me about was. The DOC could not be around their children. Geez that's incredible. You know her story. It's so sad. The thought that this parent couldn't be with their child and the the fear of being diagnosed. Well you're pregnant. I can't even imagine however it's not uncommon that a parent gets diagnosed. I with cancer. How do parents go about having that conversation with their children when they find out this diagnosis so I think one of the things that you know we talk about cancer diagnosis? Of course. That's a hurdle on its own. It's a lot of medical appointments. It's bills it's talking to your family instead of coping to that. It's also a lot of pressure on yourself yourself and your mental health but I think when children are involved there are so many added layers because a lot of parents don't know how to talk to their children about cancer. Some of them don't even tell the children at all feel specifically waited to see what her cancer would look like because if she had to shave her head for example that's when her daughter daughter her older daughter would ask questions. Like why is this happening. What is happening so I think the first thing is a lot of parents don't know if I should even talk to their children specifically about cancer but the experts that I talked to you know it's really up to the parents themselves but one thing they really need to be open with I think is if their child start asking questions and you should be able to answer them? You know you really don't have to go into the details of what your cancer is and what it means and I think cancer is such a scary word for everybody and people like to sort of put a time line around it. I think it's less about that. But more focused around. You know your parents are still here for you. Your parents love you and we're still here to support you. One of my experts talked about cancer specifically with young children. They sometimes think that the diagnosis is their fault. So if something bad is happening to their parent you you know. Sometimes in their head they'll think oh maybe do something to cause cancer so I think communication is really really here as hard as it is. It's it's important to be honest to tell your kids you know what's happening and what this means for your family. You know what this means for your structure this could mean maybe less time outdoors or maybe more time inside or maybe more times with your relatives because the parent with cancer can't spend much time with them and I think it was interesting. What you brought up as well the idea that it mom or dad might have to shave their head because of the cancer diagnosis and the treatment that they're going through? They might lose their hair for kids. Who may have a hard our time fully grasping the biology of what's going on? That is a very obvious visual indication that something's changing their parents and I think it's it's hard I think it's hard for parents to sort of almost put her face in front of their children and I think a lot of these parents struggled with that it was really hard for them to internally go through their own diagnosis and and then physically. They're also going through changes. So for example yes a lot of them did have to shave their heads. Others were wrapped up two tubes in the hospital beds so it visually visually. It's a really scary time. I think for children to see their parents like that. One of the things that Fiona talked about specifically about cutting her hair. She brought her daughter along with her with into through the process. They looked at photos and she explained like you know Mommy's very sick she's going to get better and one of the things she told me was. I wanted to make it clear to her that I was going to get better because I think as scared as your child is it's a little bit of a reinsurance from the parent. I think to let them know exactly. You have more positive outlook even something on the CA cancer diagnosis and I think this part of the conversation really relates back to what we were speaking about previously and that it is mental health and how you process these emotions and process what you're going through. Did parents ever speak about feeling something. Unexpected Lake perhaps even guilt that they were diagnosed. Yes so for a lot of parents There was a sense of guilt. I think for them. It was the guilt of not being around their children and so a lot of them had extra hospital visits. Chemotherapy extended bedrest. I talked to one woman who had a diagnosis where she had to isolate herself from everybody in her her family she couldn't even be around her children. There are parents who have to spend or even send their child away to another relative for a period of time because they can't be around their child so I think that sense of guilt definitely hits parents but one of the important things. Experts talked about specifically around guilt. Is Your family needs to sort of set new routines and new expectations. So for example. Maybe you can't go play outside because of your chemotherapy it's weakening your immune system and you can't go outside or to the park Arcor on vacation but maybe in turn we turn that as to game nights or something indoors or something more less physical activity that the parent can still take pardon so usually in this case unless you're a single parent there is another partner or support family member or someone in the picture as well. It's really important for them to also part of these conversations because if you're feeling guilty about parenting specifically there should be waste accommodate around that now.

"Radio one Sirius XM one sixty nine from public radio international, which goes by PRI, Tom Howard. I don't know you might be in a reflective mood these days as the year winds down. You might be thinking, man. My twenty eighteen was productive. Terrible miraculous or involved way. Too much Ford innate now and filled with regret whatever adjective you'd stick in there. I want to tell you about someone who's had a pretty amazing year. Scarborough Ontario is very own Stefan. James, you might have seen him in the show homecoming on Amazon prime opposite an up and coming new actor named Julia Roberts, Stefan earned himself Golden Globe nomination for that role. He just wrapped the action movies seventeen bridges. And now he's the lead in the new Barry Jenkins film. If Beale street could talk Barry Jenkins, by the way on the show the guy who directed moonlight. But I like to think guy who was once. Thank you is the first dimension. But not too bad. Right. It feels like Stefan. Is about to become a really big deal. And so what does it feel like to be suddenly gathering this sort of crazy momentum so early in your career, and it's only twenty five years old? He's going to tell us all about it, Stefan James joins me live in the Q studio. Welcome to the show. How are you man? I'm great. Thanks. We have nice to see you. Good to see you home for the holidays. Is that why you're home? Yeah. But also here to talk to you, man. The reason you came. He said mom, I'm going to be able to make it home this year. But only if I could do an interview on public radio. But you guys do at the holidays. What's the just a lot of family time? You know, we, you know, we're not too big on gifts at the the gift of time with family is like the biggest the biggest thing for us, especially because he must not see them too often. We don't we don't as kind of rough nowadays being so nomadic, but it's going to be home man, you know, on the way in we were talking about how we both sort of remembered that we had spoken before TV show. And I think I had congratulated you on a Canadian screen award for raise. Now, I congratulate you on your first Golden Globe nominations. Yeah. Thank you. How does that feel incredible? And weird, you know, like now people like me Golden Globe nominees defined James. It's like it's like a part of my real name now. So it's kind of cool. I hope you insist that your friends call you that too. Yeah. Everyone where where do you find that out if someone call you or? Yeah, it's crazy. I got I was in my hotel room in Los Angeles. And I got a call the morning of the nominations that woke me up out of my sleep. I at an ungodly hour like five AM, and I work with. To my publicists like screaming top of her lungs that I had been nominated. I couldn't really make it out in the first few seconds by you know, it took me a while to put tune through together. And and you know, I just had a minute to to take it all in. That's something very meaningful about that. And I think it's especially meaningful you dedicated your nomination to Scarborough. Yeah. Always always man Scarborough means so much to me I wear on my back pretty much everywhere. I go talk a little bit more about that. But I you got the Golden Globe for the TV drama. Homecoming are your hair though to talk about if Beale street talk, the new film from Barry Jenkins who who made moonlight. It's based on a novel by James Baldwin, you play Fani this young man, this artist who's been falsely accused of rape is in prison awaiting trial. What what is it that brought you to this character? Brought you to this story. I mean for one very Jenkins, you know, I've been a big fan of Barry for a long long time. And then obviously James Baldwin the first time in James Baldwin's being adapted ever, you know, to have an opportunity to to bathe in. Men's language and be a part of such an iconic piece of literature. You know that that really struck me as something that was important. Tell me a little bit about the research. You did. Because I heard that even though this film is set in the nineteen seventies. You were looking towards real world stories inspiration. Yeah. Yeah. Actually, my biggest source of inspiration for this. Character was a young man by the name of Khalif Browder who in New York City in two thousand and ten was charged with petty theft of a backpack crime that he didn't commit and he was sent away to Rikers island for three years two and a half of what she spent in solitary confinement knows a sixteen year old boy, and this story really really really hit home to me because I didn't have to dig back to the nineteen sixties and nineteen seventies to find an example of this. I only had to look back to two thousand ten quite frankly, I probably could have looked back to like a couple of weeks ago. Yeah. Right to find someone to to based his character off of. But ultimately, it was me feeling like these stories aren't told enough. You know, they're not told enough in film, and I told enough in documentaries and this. Allows us to sort of bring a voice to the voiceless bring a level of humanity to these guys who often get written office statistics. I know exactly what you mean. When I was watching if Beale street could talk again it set in the nineteen seventies in New York. But I was forgetting all the time. You like the Romans. I would be I would see an old car, and I'd be rhyme reminded. Oh, wait. This isn't now. Right, right. I think that's the the beauty in. Maybe the unfortunate, you know, timelessness of Baldwin that those words that he wrote in nineteen seventy four they resonate so heavily today, including as a Canadian telling a story about America. Yeah. Yeah. Of course. I mean, you know, to me, I think the first bombing actress, I gotta do my Tom Demere research. But you know, a lot of these problems are, you know, Canadians, aren't, you know, they're not different from from this experience is not different. So you know, I wish I could say that I had a totally different perspective. But a lot of these things are familiar to me as well. So growing up in Scarborough, I read this that not a lot of the reason you're an actor. But some of the reason you're an actor is because your mom used to give you VHS tapes. Yeah. Oh, man. We had the biggest like VHS collection ever like on the planet like hundreds of VHS. S's, and we me and my brothers used to just watch movies all day long. Like what what what was she given? You know, line king like the fun stuff. But it was always something for us to I think honesty looking back in. I think it was a way for her to keep us in the house. Right. Right. But honestly, I just had so much time. And so many memories from taking in like cinema with my brothers. So is it is it is it a situation where you're watching television, you go like, oh, I I can do that. I wanna do that. I don't know that I ever had that right? I think I just sorta like took baby steps put one foot in front of the other. You know, I started doing theater in high school and was like, I wonder what film and television would be like, and then I got myself a manager. And then it's kind of like, okay, I guess all auditioning. See if I if I get stuff, and then I started to get stuff, and you know, sorta just stacked one thing on top of the other. Well, let me know if I'm getting too of here because I'm just I'm a musician. I have no acting experience whatsoever. But I'm always curious about what motivates someone to want to inhabit somebody else? Let's do inhabit someone else's story. Well, I mean, sometimes it's it's an escape, you know. It's a it's a form of expression who is gay for you. Yeah. For for for the artists. I think you know, being someone outside of yourself. It's it's, you know, it's an interesting sort of feeling, and then, you know, sometimes it feels important it feels necessary, for instance, with this character just felt like it was bigger than me. You know, I felt like this story needed to be told because, you know, no, nobody gets, you know, these stories get told no one gets to give these characters voice and give them a level of humanity. And and so to me, there's that responsibility. It's like fulfilling my duty and my purpose as an as an artist if you're just tearing speaking with Stefan James about the new Barry Jenkins film, if Beale street could talk Barry Jenkins next project after his film moonlight which won the best picture Academy Award twenty seventeen. And I heard you were telling people I wanna work with Barry Jenkins one day before you got the role. Yeah. Is that right? I mean, it sounds crazy. But I I kinda you know, I really believe in. The like speaking things into fruition and into existence easy. If you say it out loud, it'll come tell everybody like all my friends. They'd be like, oh, I'm gonna make a movie with bay Jenkins. And not sure when it's going to be, but it's going to happen. And you know, I honestly didn't expect for it to be this soon for it to be literally his follow up to best picture moonlight. But so grateful that this is it. So I'm always so nervous about this. Because sometimes I have I have focusing on the show, and I'm a huge fan of their work. I'm not going to say any names. But then you meet them, and you go. Oh god. Yeah. You know what? I mean. I'm not I'm not gonna make you say anybody's name. But I I know you've also had that we've met people, you know, bare naked ladies. No. I'm only joking not they're very very nice. Me too. But you meet you meet people in you're kind of like, oh, come on. I can't even watch your movies, right? So how did the actual experience of working with Barry Jenkins match up to the expectation of working with Barry? I think it may have exceeded it is that so, yeah, he's a, you know, Beijing is a special special filmmaker he has an incredible for storytelling. He's remarkably patient of. I don't think I've ever met a director. Who's is patient? He is, and you know, and honestly, surprisingly, very relaxed. You know, he has this thing about him where you know, he's just able to keep everybody in a really chilled relaxed environment. You know, keep an intimate space feeling comfortable. So so it's, you know, it's a healthy space for the actors to be vulnerable to try things to fail to look silly. And you know, he sort of embraces all that and allows you time and space to find yourself within these characters which is something I really appreciate what what a challenging role. It is to work in his films because an NFL people haven't seen it yet. So they, but when they see it they'll look at ninety it's such a quiet film. There are long stretches with no dialogue or just one piece of Donald. That's that's an acting. I don't even know like an Olympics acting. Yeah. I mean, and that's the big credit to bury that he sort of allowed those moments to live like he doesn't rush anything as a director. I think that you it allows the audience to experience things in real time to to feel like they're a part of the story in a way. But I I love that. You didn't feel like you're over your head at all. I love the UN, Dan like there's it can be scary to work with winning your hair. I mean a little daunting. I'm not gonna act, you know, like, I just walked in on nonchalant. You know, it is James Baldwin, and it's very tank ins, and you wanna be able to to do both of those legacies Justice. But it's a big big credit to berry in the environment. He created for us. And you know, what they say that? It's been Oprah say when preparation meets opportunity. Yeah. Exactly. That's exactly what it is. Exactly. I also heard that I'm quoting Oprah. Here this morning, by the way, I'm making fun of bare naked, ladies and quoting Oprah. I heard that Barry Jenkins let you take offered a little while to do the chemistry tests with Julia Roberts for for her. Homecoming is that right? Yeah. This is. Okay. So this is crazy..

"The season. Rush kind of question is that. Man can't win on the road. On the road. Rob. Can we get rob out of Seattle? Just kill get him some coffee and make sure the Rob's going. I'm a little concerned that rob took this loss way too hard when you cover the team all the time he a little bit of Stockholm central lose. I feel like we lost all together I'm being held captive by this team. This isn't fair. Yeah. This is actually if you think about it what Aaron Rodgers should've said when he asked that question is there any hope for the season. Oh asked me about that. We're not going to. We're not gonna do that. I need at some point. We need to find out if rob is. Okay. So let's get our staff to make sure Packers intrepid reporter, rob democracy is okay. Because I'm getting a little concern about his well-being. How crush took that the reason we got off that tangent is because we're talking about static at the Academy Awards, and you guys obviously this NFL podcasts. I don't get to see very often because we work on separate schedules. The way it works here. If you're not on the same timeframe of somebody you could go almost years without seeing them. Right. So I wanted to ask you about a couple of movies that I've seen recently love him. I love the move. Now. I might a huge documentary guy. Yeah. So I told you about Agnelli the HBO documentary about the guy who wants Fiat, which I saw half of those flight flight anything, but but excellent recommendation by you know, idea about the backstory behind Italy. Yes. Exactly, literally one sense. If you believe what they say what they say the document Astra. It's pretty amazing. But the other one that I watch recently was three identical strangers. Yeah. Which blew me away. Now, I can't give it away Costanza hasn't seen it. But there's an amazing plot twists in that movie that really you like that really happened. Although when you talk to me about you did say, you you quickly surmise what happened with the plot? There's if you just following along how come similar this is not like the other for the story flows. You're unaware is that and it starts out great. It's a documentary came out this summer should be available now I- cetera. But there's a guy telling a story about going to college keeps calling him by another name, and everyone feels that they know him and girlfriends are hugging him as what's going on here and eventually talks one because oh my God, you've been identical brother. He went to school here because we're going to go right now, and they go, and they meet the guy. Imagine a funny a brother B's identical brother story makes waves and then there's a third brother because hey, I'm actually related to you guys to their identical twins identical triplets that were all put up for adoption through this one agency, and they all went to separate families. And there's a twist behind that as well, which is really crazy. Anyway, highly highly recommend that. Donahue and stuff. They're all the same. Yeah. L smoke the same cigarettes. Yeah. All the same taste in women. Yeah. And older. Exactly. I mean, it's it's it's you could tell that they were from day one. They just when they got back together, they were in sync the other we want to ask you about which I saw, and I was very hyped to see it was Baheen rhapsody haven't seen it. But I heard rally Malik is excellent. He's phenomenal. He's in line Academy Award nomination for best actor Bradley Cooper is going to win for stars. But ROY Moxham nominated. But I heard the movie is a real average mediocre rendition. And if you're a Queen fan, you'll like the music, you won't appreciate the fact they took liberties with the story. Well, listen any any movie that says based on a true events is space is will just say ninety percent of this is made up. That's the way it goes. Right. A buddy of mine produced the movie, American hustle. Yeah. And which is also based on a true story sort of. But the best part the tagline the beginning of that show is some of this stuff actually happened. They were embracing the fact that we took some liberties here. So I expect that from from a pseudo dot com. Henry about that. But I thought it was really entertaining. I didn't love it as much as I thought I was going to love it. Right. But I did really like it. You're Queen fan. Yeah. Absolutely. You'll stop me now. How about Mike? Mike Myers has a cameo in their rates me wraps critical. The Wayne's world. Yeah. That was the funny. Part one's there's a line and Mike Myers playing a wreck a record eight no one's going to be rocking out in a car to the song. And of course in Wayne's world. They are racking rocking out to bohemian rhapsody fight to get that song Wayne's world because the licensing issue don't grow up at Scarborough, Ontario Toronto he goes that's the song. We play this. Exactly. We did. So. I wanna I wanna hear your review of rhapsody FTSE. All right. I want hear I wanna get more guys. Good news. Yeah. Louis Riddick ready is he really let's go. Let's bring in Louis Riddick. Are you spend on NFL front office insider as he joins us every week Lou first and foremost since he's your guy where are you on Patrick Mahomes? Putting catch up on macaroni cheese? That's the critical question. Man. I've never heard of that one before. I mean, I kinda got me caught me off guard. But look, I don't care. You put it on whatever he wants as long as he's slinging that ball all over the field. He can do whatever you're not gonna get me to say anything bad about my guy. I I tried. It is different though. I didn't haven't you been bragging about a MAC and cheese tray. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. I would never I would never drown that MAC and cheese and ketchup though that can what is that? Why why why were you? So proud of that dish. Okay. We did. The gesture I apologize for those that were listening yesterday. We'll do this again. Yeah. We're getting the kids are coming home for the holidays. We're making the MAC and cheese in the house, and there was one year where a Janice had gone away. And I had because for every Sunday for seven years all the kids came to the house to watch football. And we made chili MAC and cheese. And we all had this was the last Sunday in their senior year the NFC NFC championship game championship Sunday. So dang it. It was the last time they're all going in the house watching football. So I stepped up and made the MAC and cheese and to this day. It's one of my proudest accomplishment. Hey, man, I'm a MAC and cheese guy once made this magazine seized eight six years later, it's one of your proudest trae, I'm happy for you. Thank you. All right. So I would never drown that and catch up. That's the most important. But more importantly, how concerned are you? Now at what's going on in Green Bay? 'cause look Seattle kept their hopes their season alive. I got there in there in there in this thing now and the Packers still are in the division because they've already beaten the bears once but how concerned are you with what you're seeing on the field on the football field. Look, I I think the Packers right now are just gonna wind up having to play out the rest of their schedule. I just don't think offensively. There's a lot of creativity with this offense. I was I was sitting there typing some notes while. I was watching this game preparing for today for to be on TV. And I'm sitting there going, you know, what everything with the Packers offense to me always predicated and look so dependent upon Aaron doing something that just looks like backyard football, nothing really seems to happen by design or by schedule or within rhythm in this offense. And I think that is something that I think that management is going to take a hard look at because there's too much smoke surrounding this team as far as him being. Unhappy with the play design play calling you know as far as how they utilize the weapons that they have on this office because when you look at the perimeter players that they have it's not always be about Aaron making some throw where we go man aired is legit, man. Aaron is so special because it's never about the offense itself. Kind of creating opportunities for people. It's always about something that he has to do that looks so spectacular. Now. How much of that is him you'll making things harder than they need to be. How much is that being the offense not being very creative? I think there's some things that really are going to maybe come to the bubble to the surface. Once this season is over because on paper this team is more talented than what's what they show I believe particularly on offense. And then from the defensive side of the ball. There. They've spent a lot of invested a lot in terms of draft capital to try and improve that side of the ball. And I mean, it has it has paid some dividends. But overall this team right now, there's another team that division that has caught up to them very very quickly and mainly because their quarterback now is looking very good. And I think that team in cargo is going to be the team that wins the north without a doubt. Mitchell trubisky. Definitely had a schedule is the defense bolstered by the MAC acquisition, which Golic and wingo right now on ESPN radio and ESPN two Adnan Virk Lewis hell at the Seahawks. No, they're not the Seahawks of a couple of years ago. Obviously the Rams the class of that division, but they actually win a late close game which has been a problem for them recently as speaker being relied to their quarterback too often hoping for Russell Wilson to make things happen inside the twenty. But how do you feel about Seattle has a playoff team? Yeah. I think they're going to be one of those teams, and that's going to be fighting for one of the wild card spots. I think they will be in the mix. You know, they right now. The truth be told are really back to what they want to be one talk to Pete Carroll this off season at the combine, you know, he was adamant that they wanted to return to their roots. They wanted to return to their original identity, which was without debt. Without a doubt a run first run Centric offense that then built off of that run game in order to kind of hit teams the playoffs in passing game and play solid defense Trudeau what they have always done. Obviously the legion of boom is not there anymore. They're not the same dominant defense they are anymore. But as they were in the past, but they do have some some quality players, but the side of the ball. I think he's getting back to what what they want to be the identity of this team the character of this team the personality of this team looks like what he wants it to be. I don't know if you know as you alluded to in the beginning. I just don't know if they have enough firepower, especially from a big play perspective to continue to do battle with some of the other high teams in the NFC that will ultimately get them, you know, in contention to maybe be NFC title contenders. But I like how this football team plays. I like how they reconstructed it this be it'll be interesting to see a P kinda sticks around to see it all play itself out and get them back to where they were before. Yeah. It's amazing to think that Pete Carroll is just continued rock at the age of what sixty eight six it's palace brave. I mean, his energy is ridiculous. Louis Riddick with us or NFL insider Levy on bell situation has played out. He's not going to he's not going to be there. Obviously, we'll see what happens going forward. I to question. I want to get to you on that. First of all it's talked about the Steelers team in general. It's amazing how they sort of navigated through this and come out stronger on the other side of this. This is a team that has been really good for a long time. But has had the bugaboo of not being able to beat New England. Do we feel like this is a different Steelers team? Now this year. Yeah. It'll it'll be interesting to see trae. I mean because you know, when when the patriots need to play their best they play their best. They find out what your weak points. Are they find out what your what your Boehner abilities are exploiting? We'll see if the Steelers have kind of address those vulnerabilities mainly and that being covered in the on the second and third level. The defense that being coverage bus inconsistency in the secondary. That has always been a problem for them when it comes to a team like New England, and Tom does absolutely slices and dice them up. We've seen it in the playoff year after year after year. This team does seem though to have taken something from the whole Levy on bell saga and turned it into a positive in terms of galvanizing this football team, and that is largely due to most times the locker room leadership that they have on the ground level. And obviously the leadership that's being provided by the head coach who can say what you want about Mike Tomlin. He is a dynamic dynamic leader. Who people want to follow him wanna listen to and want to kind of adopt. His message. This football team seems to have adopted his message, which is just worry about the players that are here..

"I believe you said you have them as like number one on gold derby to win the Oscar right now, I got a number three. I got Bradley Cooper at one. I've got mommy. Mom, getting a nomination. He'll get a nomination for. Sure. But there are times in the film when I'm thinking now, that's ready. Mercury. That's not an actor. That's tremendous the accurate plays. Brian May Gwilym Lee looks exactly like Brian May the actor that plays Roger Taylor. Ben hardy looks exactly like Roger Taylor circa the seventies and early eighties the soundtrack, obviously, it's Queen. It's fantastic. It's well used the sound design is amazing the Live Aid performance at the end of the film, though, surprised what it is. I can't really spoil it. It's thirty or forty years old almost. The they built the entire set. From scratch at Wembley. The stage is the actual stage. The crowd is CG in that's pretty blatant. Once you see the overhead shot, but the stage itself is the exact stage replica from Wembley Live Aid back in there in the eighties. That whole sequence is tremendous. I'm sitting in the theater about wanting to sing out loud. Like, I'm actually in the concert. It's such a good sound design and such a good sound mix. And it's almost replicated exactly from that Live Aid source, but I believe it's re recorded, and it's just it's a fun movie to watch. I'll give it that. It's it's a little long at almost two and a half hours. I want to say it's like to fifteen but that's about where the good ends. And it kind of plays a little bit with history. Create some revisionist history in the script, and you can see why Sasha baron. Cohen was not, Freddie. Mercury and Rami Malik was picked up to play the role. Because Brian May and Roger Taylor also executive producers on the film and definitely did not want to tell the true story because maybe to them the true story wasn't as fantastic and wasn't as dramatic as someone make it seem. But at the same time, there were a lot of just blatant inaccuracies within the film such as how Queen met and how Freddie Mercury got his start with the band. His aides reveal definitely didn't play out in real life. The way it played on the movie, in fact, it's actually chronologically inaccurate. It didn't happen when it happened and a lot of the drama. They built up was just false and made for drama. So when it comes to just making making something up just to have the storyline. I think it falters there. I but at the same time, I still think it's a fun movie to watch. I think Romney Malik performance is worthy of a star boost on its own. I give it to and a half at the end of the day. I think if you if you don't have as charismatic a lead as you do in Rami Malik, and even in even the other Queen performers, and Brian Willem Lee and Ben hardy, they're fun portrayals of those characters those people, I think it really falters. Even though you have such a fantastical band to begin with was such a storied history as Queen who created these great hits and one of the best parts in the movie as well. And we've seen it in the trailers, and it's not a spoiler because it's it's one of the big poster poster moments of the film is Mike Myers cameo as the fictional EMI. Record executive Alec Baldwin is this show the oddball then show now, which is great in the interview, Mike Marsh talk. But that he said they had to get him. Because of course, well, he me wraps. You is so critical in Wayne's world. And that's a song that Mike can play in Scarborough Ontario as going to believe games. So they said it was very tongue in cheek. They put him in there. But I was the the way a played out was fantastic. Because even the friends I was with I recognize you're right away..
