Jack Posobiec Describes the 'Saudi Shuffle'

"What's going on with Saudi Arabia? Outside of silly soccer stuff. Let's go on with the pump and dump. We call it the Saudi shuffle a massive pump and dump that took place yesterday. Single source reporting, similar to the international distribution James laporta, who was summarily fired from Associated Press. I don't know why they were dumpster diving into the bargain bin of The Daily Beast of higher reporters. I hope they never do that again. After they had to fire him for lying about the Poland missile strike that turns out actually was a cream missile, not a Russian missile. It was a stray missile, by the way zelensky still yet to apologize for that, or at least offer condolences. But in Saudi Arabia, there was a single sourced anonymous report to The Wall Street Journal yesterday that said that Saudi Arabia would be ramping up oil production. Now, remember, this has been a huge strategic goal for the Biden administration to ramp up OPEC's oil production because they've put the lock and chain on all American domestic production. And so for a second there, it looked as though the oil would be flooding the pumps would be going from Saudi Arabia and all because the Biden administration had given immunity to MBS himself The Crown prince essentially the ruler of Saudi Arabia in these lawsuits regarding the death of Khashoggi. This guy Khashoggi was in a very shady, very sinister character, wrote for The Washington Post, so already someone that we should definitely have an asterisk next to. But again, you tied to some very, very bad people in the Middle East. But here's what happened. The Saudis came out and completely denied the reports of the price of oil Charlie. For a couple hours there on the markets, the oil futures just spell. They were suddenly lying down. They said, oh, there's this huge deal because the Biden White House was taking incoming all day over this Khashoggi's widow comes out and is like, oh, how about you've killed him again? So she said, you've killed him again. Well, the dirty little secret is, it looks as though this entire thing was fake, and it was either cooked up by somebody on the street who had some nice puts maybe in the oil market and conducted a literal pump and dump with oil futures or or where they working potentially in conjunction with somebody in The White House. The Biden administration that was looking for a little bit of cover fire for the fact that they had given immunity to MBS and

The Left's Child-Mutilating Death Cult With Terry Schilling

"Another piece of tape here, NBC's brandy zadrozny blames Matt Walsh and libs of TikTok for the increase in violence against the gay community. So it's somehow Matt's fault and Elon's fault and libs of TikTok and shows like ours fault because we're really concerned that children are going to be medically mutilated and lied to by their teachers and these groomers. Play cut 59. Content moderation is a hard task. What we know is that Twitter and where the bulk of this information is right now because that's where the biggest accounts like Matt Walsh and lives of TikTok again where they sort of post this stuff. What's being done? Well, two days ago, we know that Elon Musk, who owns Twitter now. He just reversed the policy that Twitter did have against targeting and harassment of LGBTQ people against misgendering transgender people. So that narrative continues Terry any other thoughts. Yeah, look, I want to skip to the versions because that's what this is. They are the ones committing violence against transgender people or as I would describe them people with gender dysphoria. We need to hold them accountable for the violence and the destruction that they are inflicting on our brothers and sisters on our children. They are destroying their lives. They are creating sexually destroyed people that won't be able to have families that won't be able to have sexual gratification down the road. These are evil people and that's called projection. They are projecting their own guilt onto us because they know that they are the ones that are destroying our kids. They're the ones that are making these people unhappy. And you know why they're doing it because there's power behind it because there's money behind it. This big pharma companies, these surgeons, they're all on camera now, talking about how much money they're making. They're the evil ones. We're the good ones. Don't relent. We have to keep fighting.

Charlie Welcomes Terry Schilling of the American Principles Project

"Welcome back to the program. Hey, thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Terry, there's a lot of news to go through here and Terry, you run the wonderful American principles project to do a great job. Talk about some of the work you did this last cycle first. Well, we were up and running in several of these battleground Senate states, Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Michigan, even and we were running campaign as educating American people, the American people about the threat to our kids, especially as it comes to transgenderism. We ran a lot of ads on women's sports. But this year we did something new that we haven't done before. We ran ads educating Americans about these transgender surgeries, the hormone treatments, and just the overall gender indoctrination that the left is doing to our kids in schools, and we produce really powerful ads. Charlie, we spent almost $15 million this cycle. It's something I'm really proud of because frankly, and I think you probably don't aware of this. The pro family movement has done a lot of great things and been good at a lot of things, but they've retreated from the political battlefield. And that's what we do in American principles project is be fill that political gap for the family. And we win campaigns and elections for them. So we're still reading on the results for how the impact that our ads had on the electorate. But we know that where the Republicans and the politicians that really leaned into these culture war issues and went on offense, they won by huge margins, right? Like look at Ron DeSantis, he won by barely half of a percentage point in 2018. He takes on Walt Disney corporation of all people. And wins by almost 20 points. Mike dewine in Ohio signed a heartbeat bill into law. He wins by 35 points. These guys that actually went into the culture war and led on this stuff. They were rewarded handsomely at the polls. And we need to get rid of the Mitch McConnell's of the world and the mccarthys and the Tom emmers, and we really need to start rewarding our guys when they fight for us because these guys want to keep us from fighting. It's been a disaster.

How Republican Consultants Are No Different to Democrats

"Can you talk Terry on how these Republicans, they have these consultants that put these little sound bites and they wear camouflage, but in reality, they are no different than Democrats when it comes to policy. No, that's exactly right, Charlie. The Republicans will get all these interviews right and they ask us, well, why isn't this trust more of the Republican led culture wars? What Republican led culture wars? We have been on the defense for so long. And the reason we have this Charlie is because of these campaign consultants. They talk a good game. They get their candidates to say good things. But when it comes time to actually doing it, they do nothing. And you have to look no further than president Trump, right? President Trump became pro life basically yesterday and did more in his administration than all of the previous Republican presidents ever. He was the most pro life president period. And it was just because he was naive and did actually what he said he was going to do. I don't think he was naive, but you know, he said what he was going to do and he did what he said. And it's just so telling these guys think they can pull the wool over and ultimately it's anti American, right? Like you have to be a real pessimist in voters. You have to be a pessimist in the American people to think that you can lie to them and that they're just going to vote according to your lies. And they're not going to actually fact check and look into the stuff themselves. And that's part of our role at APP. It's to educate people about what's actually happening. Yeah, it's so important.

Terry Schilling on Defeating a Gender-Bending Republican

"Terry Schilling. I spent a whole week with Terry in Las Vegas, but we were not doing what you might think we would be doing in Las Vegas, right, Terry. We were reading old books and talking about philosophy. It was with the great Claremont institute. It was in Vegas, I guess, because it was the only place they could find on the West Coast that would be open and actually has the hotel capacity, but Terry Schilling runs a phenomenal organization that everyone needs to get behind, and they do such a great job. And American principles project and they also have a pack and Terry, you have a great article out defeating this gender bending Republican will help protect American women nationwide, walk us through it. Well, Charlie, for the last several years, we've seen the Republican Party completely acquiesce to the LGBT movement. They started with getting Republicans to support the equality act, which just for your viewers and listeners. It would put sexual orientation into gender and gender identity into civil rights law. It's a total nightmare. Men and girls showers, men and women sports, men and women's prisons. It's a total nightmare. Well, along the way, the Republicans who are soft on this stuff came up with a quote unquote compromise bill. And it's called the fairness for all acts. And they say that they have religious freedom protections in it. So what we wanted to do this year is make politicians Republicans pay a price for supporting this law. And Nancy mace is one of the last Republicans on this bill. Charlie, we've actually, this bill is so extreme that we've actually gotten more moderate members off of this bill. Good. Claudia tenney is off of it. There are several others I'm just blanking on them right now. But we've gotten 5 members of Congress off of this bill, including at least stefanik. That's the highest profile Republicans gotten on off of it. But Nancy mace is still on him. In this bill would put men and women's prisons, men and women's sports, it would put men and women's locker rooms. The whole shebang. And we

What Alex Stein Saw at the 'Drag Your Kids to Pride' Event in Dallas

"Viral video over the last couple of days. We covered extensively yesterday of the drag show for kids in Dallas, Texas, there's one man who actually went to the or tried to go to intervene and be an adult and do what was actually necessary. That's Alex Stein number 99. I think I got that right. He's hilarious. Alex, welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Charlie, your alleged, oh my gosh, you're calling me 99. I feel like I made it, you know, the man in the myth the legend Charlie, thank you for having me on. I really appreciate it. Your reputation precedes you. The thing when you went to the school board meeting in Dallas is one of the funniest things I've seen in a very long time. And so you went to this drag show, they didn't let you in, so they're obviously, I don't know, homophobic or something, like walk us through this. Well, listen, this is the thing about this drive show. And you know, in our culture right now, they're doing the drag queen story time at the public library. Now, that's disgusting. That's terrible, Charlie. But at least that's out in the open. What this was, this is more sinister than that because they had a clear window and once they did it, they put paper over the window. So they didn't want people in there. And obviously we did get some major provocateurs, Taylor Hansen got in, although Isabel O'Reilly, a few people did get in that where I was in a group with. But they immediately recognized me and didn't let me in. But what I'm saying is Charlie, this had the vibe of when you're in college and the drug dealer gives you the first drug. The first drug is always free and the drug culture, you know? It's like your first hit, like, come to a bar, but the reason why it was so sinister is they were attacking children. Now, listen, if you're gay, you're trans you're drag queen, whatever, go do that in your own time. You don't need to involve little children. So what this was is, this was pure indoctrination, Charlie. And this was an attack on these children, and it gave me the vibrational energy that they were almost feasting on the purity and vulnerability of these children, and they were loving it. Like, you know, like a vampire, like a Dracula almost.

"Is one. There's a monocultural idea of new york. Which is like it's worth these. Jews live and talk to that also breaking down as new york gets more diverse but also like these as television becomes more fractured. You get depictions of new york. That are much smaller that when they are depicted in new york they are not being like. This is what new york looks like. I think like brought city did an episode about a street. And there's this street is the street will live on and girls is very much like this brooklyn. We don't and even like aquafina. I think is more about queens. Like i think the assumption the sort of seinfeld ian confidence to be like. We're gonna make a show about new york city but it's only going to be about people within four blocks the one side each other. I can't imagine someone doing that. I think what you're saying speaks to the insular nature of the show. The show is about characters who live in the same neighborhood in the same four block radius and do the same things every week. I thought they made up the idea of kramer gain loss at the corner. Second and second. I was like there's no city in the world that will be to into that doesn't make sense to me when i found out that that's how new york works. I was very confused. Yeah the idea of avenues and streets and in queens. They've got like numbers. And then a dash and then more numbers. What is this. There are too many numbers that the subways are numbered. The they've got letters to pick. Wine stopped is streets. Avenues what are you gonna do. I don't know let's have both Both in numbers numbers before this becomes just new york brazelle. A it is a grid system. That is incredibly intuitive. But i understand l. a. has like four streets go the tire way and then everything's off of it. Well i think everybody hates where they live. that's that's just a fact and seinfeld is about hating the place relive and there is a sense of purgatory to it. Which is again. i think reinforcing what. I'm what i'm trying to say about. The show is that you feel trapped. When you're watching seinfeld. I think purgatory is exactly it. Liked me this show least jerry's version of the show is. This is waiting for godot. These people are stock reliving the same conversations about nothing. It's not a show where it's a show about nothing nothing happens. There's the idea of jerry. Put a picture of the earth. Seen from space in the raiders room to explain to people. This doesn't matter what we're doing is just. This is just our lot and then we're going to be dead in one hundred years or whatever. No one's gonna care about this. Yeah larry's show everyone gets in each other's way and it's like these complicated plots. Jerry doesn't care about the complicated Jerry just wants these people have nothing happened to them that they go through all these journeys in the exact same spot. It's like to me. It's like the chinese restaurant. Episode is like a a further distillation of the show of just like there's no plot like literally it's them waiting for their table and even when their table is called. It's the raw like that sort of complete meaninglessness. I think is captured. This sort of like dark as part of the shell. We're all trapped on the same rock sort of thing. So isn't that and funny that we're all stuck together in our own form of predatory which is life by bringing larry. I want to talk about our last question. Which is if this jerry's world and jerry's experience filtered through these characters. What's larry david's role here. Because larry david famously leaves after season. Seven doesn't come back until the finale which people hate it. it's still reviled in famously. Became the subject of the curb. Your enthusiasm seinfeld reunion season. Larry goes on to great success. Doing curb becomes a star in his own right. And you see serious differences between these two shows or similarities. Obviously but curb is just a meaner. I think it has more contempt for its characters than seinfeld ever did. So what did larry bring to the show and how to. How do we reconcile this kind of theory. The grand theory of seinfeld with the fact that it is not an autour vision it is a collaborative vision between two similar but different men. The show got written very differently than almost every sitcom ever which essentially writers pitched an idea. They wrote a full script than they gave it to. Larry and jerry and the no. No one knows what happens. They just like fully put whatever their spin on it. But if you look at what happens. When larry leaves all the plotting becomes much similar in much broader and like much bit focused. There's not these things where it all comes together and crashes together. It's like the bizarro world thing bizarro. Jerry where it's like this is like barely set in a real world. This is just a conceit. Sounds like a sketch you have to remember. The show's called seinfeld. It seinfeld show. They're doing the show. Because of jerry seinfeld then jerry brings larry in and he's almost like it's like jerry's the god of this world then larry is like the facilitator of this world and he's moving the pieces around he's wormtongue from lord of the rigs so i think larry is the person who's like it's funny to call him humanistic because obviously the show so anti feelings but he cares about human scale problems any moves people around and there's more plots about dating and like people angrier and i think that's the larry thing of how can people get in each other's way right and i think jerry people have no relationship to him. He's like completely on his world. he's he's not interacting with them. And i think larry is the clashing of different egos and and seeing how could do it and how it all relates. I think. I don't think jerry cares as much about this sort of that. The thing that even kerber susie as ending that perfect thing where the plod plod in everything comes together and it's like one thing. I don't know if they did that as much when the mario left. Yeah it was more like you said idea. Based in very sketchy Because it's not necessarily about how annoying it is to be around other people. It's about how ridiculous the world is. And i guess. That's these are two separate coping mechanisms for for life which is either nothing matters. Everything matters so much. I am going to like. Take this rock and precedent to a diamond. Just because i'm so mad there's a bit of a trying to attain zen in jerry's life that every everything gets in the way of that but there is something very much where he's always trying to find some kind of peace and i think finding humor which is also like a very kind of like a buddhist mentality is finding the humor. Am these small irritations. Maybe that's my galaxy bringing take on the whole thing. Is that as that like. The world is keeping jerry from attaining supremacy in a. jerry's been meditating disease like eighteen. or there's a feeling of like he's trying to meditate and then these people keep on interrupting his yes very Los angeles attitude trying to find peace and being it being impossible even though you should be able to. There's all kinds of other things happening around you. Whereas i think larry's mentality is more. What i associate with new york which is this is pissing me off. I'm mad and i. I'm really comfortable being nad and where i am. Most useful to the world isn't expressing my anger. The culture of new york is just people in different accents screaming at each other. I can't think of a more new york person than jesse david fox our guest today so much for joining us to talk about seinfeld they feel like we really broke it down and figured it out. I think we solved it. Resolves that we crack the nut. If you're listening to this good podcast feed you know. Listen to our show but if you're listening to it on the guys you bring feed.

"What would jerry do. What would a lane do. What would be a funny position for them to be in. And i think that's because the greatest sitcoms and especially seinfeld or all about what's going on in your head. I honestly think seinfeld in a lot of ways is just four characters having a conversation. That is what jerry would have himself like. It's his internal monologue expressed through four people in some ways. That hear me out. Jona seinfeld is essentially a hallucination of jerry seinfeld well hold on wait okay. Sorry you seriously think. Seinfeld is a hallucination. How often do you see jerry's bedroom or bathroom. Where all of these characters magically rhonda's apartment in the first place the way people move and react in sitcoms is unnatural but seinfeld awesome calls attention to its artificiality season. Four's meta arc in the cupboard. Union are especially telling examples of this but seinfeld has tons of stories that take place outside of jerry's apartment. There's monks elaine's office Yankee stadium kramer's apartment. I mean they even go to india and one episode. Yes yes. I get that. But what i'm saying is the show was an expression of jerry's various personalities. Even if larry david was co-creator these characters the slovenly buffoon the mucci neighbor in the focused careerist yearning for healthy relationship. Are all basically just reflections of the man. Jerry seinfeld these characters could barely stand each other. Have very little in common and yet they're all drawn to each other in severely unhealthy ways. Why are they stuck together. Jona because in every single episode jerry seinfeld is essentially talking to himself. Oh my you turned into a beautiful angel known you pissed on the couch. You're just feed your polls. Oh i'll just flip the cushion. It's fine.

"Meta fictional version. Of jerry's life told through the trappings of a traditional multi. Camera sitcom what made seinfeld so unique at the time was that it didn't treat in the usual sick. I'm troves while still being an amazing on. It wasn't about a family or set in a workplace. In fact the only time we ever saw jerry at work and most episodes was the cold open where he'd be on stage on joke that was loosely connected to the plot for that week's show as writers would go on to admit during the incredibly medicine for arc about jerry and his best friend george. Creating sitcom seinfeld was about nothing. It was four people. Only nominally friends getting involved in hijinks. It usually stemmed from their social ineptitude selfishness and inability to express themselves. Honestly ensure these people sucked. They were decks. Which is why larry. David's polarizing final episode of the series saw jerry. George elaine and kramer put on trial and sent to prison for violating a good samaritan law. Well audience in the ninety s adore these characters and obsess over there outrageous narcissistic behavior. Larry saw them is contemptuous and felt that they simply had to be punished. That's pretty weird. Considering all four main characters on seinfeld were based on real people one of them. Jerry seinfeld is playing a fictional version of himself. Seinfeld is a perfectly written. Expertly plotted sitcom with dozens of memorable episodes. But is it also a terrifying vision of one man splintered identity. Let's dive into the existential muck in another edition of critical raise. What is your favorite episode of seinfeld. You know it's funny. I i. I was trying to think that when. I knew we were doing this episode. You know i think of seinfeld and moments more than i do of episodes and because it does feel like you know sketch show in that way and some of them are as simple as say. The frogger episode. All it really is is moved. That georgia's and i think this move a lot where he can't push the frogger out of the dividend the road and then he like puts his hand up like his last his last shot at lake trying to stop the truck from coming destroying the frogger is to put his hand up and try and stop the truck with his hand and then like dodging the way george they closed up a one nine outside.

"Oh this is you know. This is a feminist masterpiece etcetera etcetera. I watched it now. I get so much more from the male characters. Because i can put myself into the shoes of these loathsome male characters and say oh here things that maybe i thought before were okay in arnaud k. And i can understand my effect on people a little bit more. I can understand my effect on women in the workplace a little bit more. I can understand why. I want or need certain attention from women a little bit more and why that may or may not be to them. That is what i take from this movie more than anything else. Is it forces me to be a bit more introspective about who i was raised to be who i would like to be going forward and i think that's that's what makes it a movie that i keep coming back to is because it is ultimately a satire how we talk to each other and why the world is the way that is from the micro level of the do's and the macro level of how men and women or gender or sexuality functions in the world. So yeah i will give zero nipples. But i will give it two thumbs up just like my good friend. Siskel and uber. Yeah i i just don't think i could. I can judge it that way. I have to. I have to judge it based on like what. I'm learning from it. I think it's totally fair. Well dave thank you so much for joining us. What our discussion with fun. I could've continued to talk about this movie for another two hours. But that's just that's too much do that to win as long as the actual movie right. We're want to do tell us where people can Follow you on social media. Plug anything you'd like to plug. I am at dave underscore schilling on twitter. Please when you have time free spare time subscribe follow. Listen to galaxy brains My new podcast. My co host and i joan array talk about movies television all of the pop culture things that we love but from a kind of comedic political perspective hence the title galaxy brain so we we will take a a an outlandish theory about a movie or a television show and extrapolate upon that too. It's most absurd logical or illogical conclusion we've done episodes about the zack snyder. Justice league who are we talking about the nature of superman and i ended up giving a kind of passionate speech. About why superman be sad. Because he is responsible for everyone else in the world and why he should be black we talk about godzilla vs calm and try to figure out what godzilla represents in that movie We have an episode about mortal kombat and mortal kombat professional. Wrestling are basically the same thing. We talked to patent oswald about star wars and the efficacy of animation versus live action in that universe and the episode. I'm most excited about that. We just finished recording is a look back at josie and the pussycats for the twentieth nursery. And we discussed whether or josie and the pussycats is not just a feminist film but also is it the most anti-capitalist socialist movie of all time and our guests for that episode are the writers and directors of josie and the pussycats. Deborah kaplan harry l. Fine they were such a treat and spoiler alert. They agreed with everything we had to say and they were very much appreciative of our reading of the movie. So i hope you listen to that one at the very least because i think that's the one i'm the most proud of because we got to really chop it up with the people behind the movie and hear their perspective on why they were able to and what they hope to gain from making a movie. That was so very much about collective action in socialist thinking in feminist thinking. I mean just. The pussycats is the best movie ever joined the army. We did talk about preliminary advertising to and how it clearly worked on me because they've seen the movie so many times on my gosh same. I have not one but two t shirts you get the t shirt no but

"It's still about yourself and self interest. Yeah not enough not to take the promotion. She's very nice to the people who are laid off but she's still takes the promotional. You know in the same way like jack. Nicholson when everyone's laid off. He's the clearest village where they're you know they're like well you want to shave a million off of your salary. And he gets like he's like he's he starts. Hissing and spitting. And then paul is like. I'm so sorry. That was the worst joke. I've ever made a joke i made. I would never that is why was not being serious. It was very much a joke. And then jack nicholson goes. But then it's like. But tom and jane are very involved in this too. Where they you know. They're they're nice people who were laid off but they take their promotion and they're going to go on vacation about it like I got a clear my head. Oh boy that's hard firm. I have a job so hard. I'd better go to wherever they're going to go about it like you know. If you're if you put yourself in the in the shoes of joan cusack who just got laid off. You'd be like fuck you. You're going on vacation for. What do that between Junkie second and Jane where she's like except for socially you're my role model which i think passes the bechtel test. I think that's the closest we get. Wow that's that's something right that's something funny pad like they didn't want to talk about the the actual story that i think is like you know i feel. There's this little ambiguity of like okay. So tom is self aware that he doesn't know what his job is. But how far is he willing to go as he just gonna fail upwards passively or actively fail upwards and the moment where he the. The story he chooses is particularly at again. It's just like this like such an ambiguous thing or it was for me when i put my one thousand nine hundred eighty seven goggles on. Because he does a story on date rape which in one thousand nine hundred eighty seven was barely term. That existed was not a popular discussion and at that time would have been a risky broadcast. And i think that is reflected in the way that it's received especially by air. It was like this isn't news bowl. But i don't think that that is like as despicable as reaction. It as it was. I don't think it would have been an uncommon one At the time visit the salt to nuclear disarmament talks. Who cares right that was. That's the aaron altman attitude about the news and to nixon.

"Tom isn't wrong in that. Like tom does is kind of the antithesis of what jane claims to stand for but she thinks that maybe she could get an area of her life. I felt that she hasn't had fulfilled in a long time through him. And so she's getting to the point where she's like well. Maybe i can overlook the ethics of it and aaron does bring her back to earth in his like. Are you sure you can see overlook the ethics of it and it's just so like everyone in this situation sucks and is making a huge compromise of their morals. And i hate that aaron. That makes a good point. But i do think he. He makes a really good point. They're like he's simply not wrong. In that case. I almost wish that it had been her to like. Put the pieces of the puzzle together and figure it out on her own. That sure tom had like brought only one camera and that he must have staged. And like yeah. I don't i feel like The fact that it's aaron doing out of spite and rage and selfishness is it take some of the the thrill of victory away But i wonder if you know that was the point is. Is you know jane. So lost in her fantasy of who. Tom is or could be that. She can't see so it has to be someone else but it has to be someone acting in self interest as opposed to someone who really cares because none of them really care. All of them are self interested right the end of the day. None of them are truly altruistic in their behavior at all. There is no truly good person in this movie. Everyone just wants love or approval or acclaim or esteem. nobody is thinking about. How can i help someone else. I guess on some level there is some altruism from jane in regards to her her co workers a little bit put out really or aaron choosing to leave instead of sticking around so somebody could keep their job. Maybe but not really..

"A sad sack neb. Ish is the hero in so many of these movies. And ray you realise. In retrospect they are the the tagore in all of these movies There the cause of every problem. It comes off the worst. And it's it's because it's like constantly erin is kissing his coworkers without their consent. Just like really lunging and making ago go for it. He feels entitled to their time. He makes comments like like the comment. You mentioned dave to jennifer. There was Or caitlyn i forget who said but like that completely inappropriate. Like oh you you. Must you know you would tell anyone. You love them. kind of thing the way he acts when the date rape segment is at the moment. When you know he's the worst person he's as if there was any doubt is horrible. And like i mean we'll we'll get into that segment because that's like very very interesting. But you know he has a lot of Dislike and and just dismissal towards women even went and i think that is kind of like i mean we talked about this all the time of Of how it tends to be at least more narrative interesting and you know applicable to see men. Male characters who male audience members can see themselves in and i can. I can see you know watching broadcast news. The the casualness of his misogyny and casualness that he feels entitled to fuels not unrealistic. And it's not like a cartoon villain of a misogynist. It's someone who is just projecting onto people who he doesn't think are more powerful than him and people who he clearly doesn't think are gonna you know bring it up or do anything like his character is so emblematic of that is like what do you mean. I'm a good guy like he's that kind of character. But it's written so i don't know i. I like how his character is written because it does. It feels like a recognizable person who was saying despicable stuff really regularly. But it's so it it makes sense that it's normalized in this world. Yeah i think it's It's important to note that they cast a comedian in this role so that her if you cast a comedian most likely you're going to look at that person as sympathetic especially in nineteen ninety-seven when that that type of character was considered roic So casting someone who is used to kind of begging for affection in the way that all great comedic performers do we fit. Even if you have stage try to get people laugh you know how desperate that is and how you wanna be loved the story of our lives. I know right so albert brooks is able to bring that. In that is i think why he was only successful to appoint playing the lead in movies like this because one he and his co writer. Monica johnson were writing characters that were loathsome satirical for him most of the time but also because even when he's trying to be likable he's kind of annoying. He kind of don't like this person because he's just has this like you said this this underlying kind of menace and misogyny to his characters That is softened in. Probably his most popular movie. Like i said defending your life where the is the romantic lead and he is trying to be a better person he does get the girl at the end and he does kind of almost maybe possibly sort of deserve it. But he's still it starts. The movie is self centered. Narcissistic person. So i think there was never a point when he when he was going to be a super duper movie star on the level of steve martin or other other contemporaries of his because he was so attracted to these parts that when a comedian had to be unlikable in a in a lean role in a movie he was the one you went to because he could be just likable enough but not afraid to be completely unlikeable and that is an again why i love his work so much is because he project projects this awareness and this vulnerability and also this Menace that is recognizable. I think for a lot of people a lot of men who are looking at themselves. And saying i'm not so great you know there's a realism in a in a in an honesty to it. That is incredibly rare even when you're playing the most loathsome character in a tv show. If you're steve carell in the office you still kind of want to be liked. Albert brooks the most of his movies. He's like you have to like me. I stink. sh- does stink that scene toward the end of the movie where jane is like. I'm going on this trip with tom. This is my last chance to see you. Let's have lunch or whatever and he in there like kind of saying goodbye and they're like talking about their futures and stuff and then he says something like. Oh here's what's yours. Well it's going to go down. Will you know drift apart a little bit and then will reconnect a few years down the road and my son will be there and he'll say something really mean to you and i'll have to jump in and be like it's not nice to say something about lonely fat women like that and it's really painful scene to search bad that to your best friend i was like she's still kinda forgives him. Yeah she. I think there is very much a vibe of like that. Ads are aaron. And you're like bo. Why fries this jackass. Yeah i think she feels that way. I don't think the movie is saying that it's okay. I do think that the movie judges him harshly and but then when they like the movie ends on. What i think is meant to be this like tender moment of them reconnecting after like seven years. And they're catching up and it's like jane get away from him like this guy sucks you know you've got your issues too but you can do better and i was just. I don't know. I was just very disappointed yet. Would have been nice to have some catharsis for her some point where she could really tell him off but the movie does not grant her that or any of the characters that really. I guess the scene in the airport where jane gives it to tom and and expresses her outrage at his behavior is the only seen where any character is truly dressed down. Everybody else kind of gets away scot free with their with their problems at least at least their actual problems when aaron confronts jane in that restaurant at the end he is not saying anything true about her. He's not he's not expressing any real issue that she has in her personality. He's just being cruel for the sake of being cruel. Yeah yeah. I mean he just like very much projects i mean. He's he's he's the worst and let he is not totally wrong about everything that he says and that is like. I think that kind of dovetails into the tom discussion a little bit. Where we're that scene with with hemin. Jane where jane is like. I think i'm falling in love with tom. And aaron is just being total fucking baby about everything he's like you're my mom. And my way like he's like byerly. How many total meltdown and just like peeing his diaper about it. But then he brings up a point. That is a pretty good point about how tom approaches the news. And how you know you know he says thomas the devil and which is dramatic but but also he does bring up a point that jane doesn't wanna hear which is also kind of like a pretty interesting thing that is brought into her character of like. She knows she's well aware that. Tom doesn't know what he's doing and she knows that because she's doing it for him a lot of the time and sometimes errands doing it for him in the case of that. Big story about libya where You know. Aaron called jane and gave tom the information he needed to look good. She knows that because she told tom off when she first met him. Like why. are you whining to me. Learn how to do your job then like why are you telling me this like franck you. But she's still attracted to him and she's struggling with that which i guess like if you're a comedian who's had sex with a comedian. Then you can understand that. That i was like that. Interaction is just like I see my life in this at times. relatable like. Why doesn't anyone laugh when i talk. I'm like that's a you problem In any case like errands view of..

"Differs kinda cool. She's cool. He's a very chill lady and she just kind of like yams living my life. Whatever tom skew. There's a scene where. I felt bad for jennifer too. I think it's pretty early on where all the reporters at the station are kind of like asking each other ethics questions where they're like. Oh would you tell a source you love them to get information out of them and they were all like yup. Of course i would. And then when when like jennifer confirms that she would. Aaron is like yeah jennifer. Didn't know that there was any other option is if to be like well jennifer. What a floozy. She's out there Loving in having sex with all of her sources i do. I do wonder if there was like i in my okay to thing like i wonder if there was some sort of deleted scene where this is address because it does seem like jennifer is pretty like heavily setup character to completely disappear with a throw a joke. It does feel kind of bizarre to me given the rest of the characters in this movie. Nothing else for jennifer. She is long gone to alaska. That is the end of jennifer. I liked the scene. I liked the other one of her moments. Where after she and tom do hookup. Tom notices that. She has a spare room in her apartment. Maybe that is like four. Her clothes and jennifer gets defensive before he even says anything. And it's like. Oh well. I had that extra space and you know i it. It felt kind of you know however you feel about it like commentary on how female news anchors have a higher pressure to look a certain way than their male counterparts to the point where she felt the need to like get ahead of his potential criticism and that was like another like pretty thoughtful moment. I thought and then she just she just disappears. I hope that she wins. A pulitzer and alaska. That's my head can fern. She catches the serial killer. They make an incredible docu series about it and jane is kicking her something. Yeah i mean. I think this is like you said dreaming of a very tricky movie because it isn't cleanly moralistic it isn't cleanly one side or the other is very messy with the perspective and i think that that is one as we all pointed out of fault of the fact that it came out of nine hundred ninety seven but also. I think it's because this is a movie that is conflicted about its own subject. Matter it's conflicted about the idea of the news and whether or not the news is good as it is portrayed in the world There's that whole sequence when they're in the Involved in the the war. I don't even remember what nicaragua nicaragua. Okay glad that they actually had a country instead of just like we're in a war zone and there are people that don't speak english It's it's played not for laughs necessarily but they are oddly. Not engaged with anything. They're kind of detached from the fact that they're in a war zone. There are people in opportunistic. It is not empathetic. it is not oh my goodness this is. This is a situation where people's lives are being lost. There's political upheaval. And you know who signs on. Why is this happening. It's just here's the thing that happened in. Can we get a shot of the boots. Okay guy boots great. Nobody got shot okay. Wonderful it's very matter of fact..

"Nobody because jane was jane was being an asshole. And like that is one of the things that for me watching. Twenty twenty one. I was like oh. Jane can be a real like you know. Really weaponized insecurities against other people. I mean especially because she gets on her high horse about ethics in reporting lose. And then she's she makes this choice too because she had the choice between a character named george who we also talk about and jennifer as the person who they're gonna send to alaska to report on some alaskan serial killer and without a moment's hesitation the second jane. Here's jennifer's name as an option she's like jennifer jennifer and it's because she's trying to get rid of her so that she can move in on tom. Who by the way had called his the reason that jane was like yeah jennifer. You can go after him. I don't care is because thomas to her in he's like you look so pretty in clean because normally at the office you have this gross layer of film on you. It's so it's so frustrating. Yeah 'cause it's like i think. I hope that we're supposed to you know that's supposed to be like audience. Wise a strike against jane and clearly like you know she she's like you're saying caitlyn constantly on her horse about ethics but then in practice her record is spotty or then she'd liked to admit but most frustrating thing is if jane had just been straightforward and ben like no. I'm interested in tom. Like i would appreciate if you didn't hook up with him. It sounds like jennifer would have been like okay and moved on with her life. It's never would have been a problem..

"She deserved but then i can also see it as like well what we're very intelligent. Highly motivated women in the workplace at this time actually getting and what does this move your reflective that and i don't know yeah i it's it's really three in tough and i mean i. I like that this movie kind of engages with that but it is like. It's a bummer. I like i feel like it is kind of cool choice to at the end. Add the flourish of like. Maybe this is going to be the relationship that works for her and maybe she is on the brink of having it all because she had to deal with all this bullshit and got her career in line and rejected these two assholes and moved on with her life. But but we don't know yeah i. I've always liked the kind of ellipse elliptical nature of it were kind of leaves you wondering. I hope she gets what she wants. But you don't know because she's still herself and she still has grappling with these. Things has hasn't had the complete like revelation. Oh this is how. I solved the problem because none of us really ever do. That's the thing that i think separates great films from very good films. The acceptance of the fact that most of us will never solve the one big problem in our lives. Because it's hard that's work. That never ends were were constantly trying to perfect ourselves in. Perfection is impossible. It is worth noting that the year after this movie came out. Nineteen eighty eight. That was the year of working girl. Directed by mike nichols starring melanie griffith. Here's fort weaver and that movie. In contrast to this one is about where we're a jane is kind of you know I think always destined for success. Upper class kind of person lauded for her intelligence meli griffith's character in that movie is considered lower class doesn't belong on wall street which is certainly a less morally upright profession than broadcast news at that time. Neither are great. But that one's definitely you know. Wall street workers the worst of them. All yeah like yeah on the list at least you know they were trying to tell the truth on some level but not really Melanie griffith gets everything she wants. The end she gets the corner office. She gets all the fancy clothes. She gets harrison ford at the end even though harrison ford in. That movie is kind of jerk. You sucks yeah exactly but like that was the inverse of this and i. I like br working girl. Because it's funny. It's kind of like an amusing fairytale but of the to broadcast. News is far superior to me because it does paint. The realistic picture of human beings constantly stepping on themselves trying to succeed and trying to be better people in failing miserably. And that's how. I feel as a human being all the time. Yeah and it's like. I think like and that's part of why it's like a tough pill to swallow but it's like this. This movie doesn't present itself as the for the bizarro. Like reagan era fairytale. That working girl does and you can listen to the episode about working girl on on the patriotic john that we did. I think a year and a half ago years ago. Who knows when that was we've covered at. But but yeah i agree that like. I think that this movie has endured more. And it's partially for those reasons like i. I don't know it's i. i like the. Jane's ending is pretty ambiguous and like opens up this kind of discussion. It's cool to have these discussions and you know how the discussion of a woman's career in eighty seven would be different than now hopefully in some ways and it does seem like a cool. I don't know just like marker of where things were especially because and again. I don't want to give james burke too much credit here. But he was he was engaging with very popular female characters who were in the workplace For like fifteen years before this movie came out and he he or over fifteen years where he was working in the mary. Tyler moore show which was like a huge component of second wave feminist entertainment where it was like a huge deal that a career woman was being centered in any way regardless of what she was doing even in and now it seems like piddly nothing..

"The process of actually making this is not to just make it up. Poll cloth which is i think how a lot of male writers and directors will approach a woman story and this is ultimately. jane's story. he looks at it. It seemed like he looked at it more from a journalistic standpoint and said i need to bring some various military tude to a story that i have some understanding of but not the full picture. I'm all for male raiders. Doing their homework like it's just. It's a breath of fresh air. It's really nice. Yeah let's talk about jane. Jane sweet jane she. I mean some just pretty obvious stuff here. She is extremely competent at her job. We see this constantly. Which is something that i feel like in a lot of movies. That sent her a female character. Female protagonist even. That is good at her job. We are mostly only like told this or like other characters. Talk about how good she is it her job but we don't actually see any visual evidence of this so the fact that we constantly see her working and see the ways in which she is good at her job again bare minimum stuff here but You know it's it's worth noting that that's a very important aspect of her character. We see her be appreciated for the work that she's doing we see her being valued and recognized. There's one scene where the president of the is it the network president or i think the head of the network news the network news division because this is a broadcast network. This is this is like an ab major. Yeah right right right right as opposed so like today. Twenty four hour news channels and stuff Right so their boss. Paul is observing her working. There's a scene where she's like screaming into the phone at someone about like a parking issue. She does a body. Shame someone during that so we don't love that but she's like getting the job done and paul says something like i had no idea. She was this good and then that leads to her eventually. Getting like a major promotion so even though it's perhaps not always the most realistic thing especially for a woman in the eighties to be like really acknowledged for the hard work. They're putting in and being rewarded for it. Because i mean again looking polly platt and how often she was overlooked. It's not uncommon for women especially of that era to do amazing work and never get any recognition or acknowledgment for it but on the other hand to see that onscreen as an example of something that can happen and should happen was just really cool to see so. I appreciate that aspect of her character. The other kind of major thing about her is that she's looking for love in all the wrong place tess. Yeah yeah. I think i think there's a little bit of the well. This is who is. Who is the closest person to me. And i think that that's probably true of a lot of people in in a variety of different fields. But especially in these kinds of high stress. High impact jobs You look for someone who understands your plate who understand why you're freaking out and you're unhappy bursting into tears once a day every day exactly. Yeah right so she looks for these people who are going to fulfill her but boy you know. These are not the best options. But they're the only options i wanted and this is so i mean it's like so upper middle white issues that that everyone in this movies having if not just like full-blown rich person shit going on but i'm like we gotta get jane on araya like we gotta we gotta get jane like some. We gotta get her on a on a dating platform. She needs to date. So what outside of this industry who understands high stress environments but not the one that she's in every day i was like. Oh let's let's get. Let's get jane into like 2021 nc nc what's up then because a yoga class some crystals juice regimen get her some good. Tell jane about goop like you. Just you know a girl.

"A career which i guess wes anderson she sh- her whole career was like making things happen for men and never getting credit for it but yeah i highly recommend listening to that. You must remember this season because it will shine a light on somebody who was primarily in. Her career overshadowed by people who didn't deserve the limelight as much as she did right. Yeah because she was for the most part very much like the common thread in like their best work. So it's like well. You know who is here for all of your best work and especially for like peter bogdonovich which i guess film majors can jump in my mentions if they feel like it but she was involved with his two best regarded movies ever and his career. You know kind of that kind of absolutely certainly did take a downturn. After he decided to divorce her he added affair with Civil shepherd cybill shepherd on the set of last picture show and that was kind of the swan song for him being considered a top level tour. Yeah so polly platt which i wanna make sure she gets her her do And also sound. It sounded like there was a really good on the ringer. There was a really good piece on the production of this movie. It's been written about pretty extensively at this point but there were elements of jane's character that were pulled from both susan's are in ski. Who i think was like the main source for jane's life who ended up becoming the head of cbs news. Up until like this year. I guess but but there are elements of for character that were pulled from polly platt and James brooks's relationships so she's very present in the movie she. She also had to take the movie that i super disagreed with. But i thought was interesting. Because i think from her perspective. It makes a lot of sense because she you know her career with very much the story of like trying to quote unquote have it all and have a successful marriage and a successful career in film and she was never able to have both at the same time as is Somewhat common experience especially in the seventies and eighties So she really really really wanted Jane to be able to go with tom at the of the movie even if the relationship was doomed she was really frustrated. That james l. brooks wouldn't let jane have some sort of romantic catharsis even if it was like not the guy for her. She was shoes. Seemed really really upset about it that but then she says in her unpublished memoirs that Karina longworth read a lot from and her series that she's she's like i suppose. I am a living example that you can have the career but you generally don't get them in so i think she wanted this ending for jane that she didn't get for herself and that also didn't happen in the movie. I think that that would of sucked in the movie edmundsbury perspective. Yeah it makes sense. I think you know a lot of creative. People will do this where they will project themselves onto the characters. And that's i think a function of the fact that when you become a creative person it's usually because you have a surplus of empathy sometimes. It's because you are a sociopath raging narcissi super narcissist. But i think for the people who really do the best work. The people who we are beginning to laud more than those narcissists it's empathy it's being able to put yourself in the characters and see their perspectives. And i can see doing that. But james l. brooks was one hundred percent right jane going with. Tom is a rejection of everything. Jane stood for as a character right. It's just wrong and it would have been terrible and it would made you dislike jane even more then you might have just through the course of the movie so i'm glad that it is the way that it is and jane does get a boyfriend in the in the flash war she does and and i'm all for and we've gone back and forth about this on our show for forever. Kate linden's like i dunno. It's like she she. It's clear throughout the movie that she does want some sort of companionship And so it's like yeah..

"Hey jane ask tom how he was able to get a cut away to his reaction during that story where we see him reacting and crying when he only brought one camera with him so then jane goes back through the footage and it shows that aaron got that reaction shot after the interview that he was acting and then he edited it into the story and jane is just completely disgusted and appalled by this and she was supposed to go away with talk before he left for london but she confronts him at the airport which i thought was a fun subversion of like you know people go to the airport and like make up and kiss but she goes there to to scold his ethic. She's like you make me sick. I'm not going on this trip with you. You committed a terrible breach of ethics. Screw you forever. it's it's also one of the great Pre-nine eleven airport scenes. Because she's just kind of wandering around. She's not sure if he's gonna go or dot. She doesn't have a ticket because he's got the tickets he's wandering around with like funny hats and like hey the airport the place to be. She's like no break up with you and then he's like okay. I guess i'll just walk through this single piece of security and get right in one metal detector and it's just very very interesting. Yeah it's like walking into a jc penney basically. Yeah i think people just go to the airport to have lunch. Oh there's a hot in the airport. Yeah let's go there can't really So that's the end of them. Then we cut to several years later where jane. Tom and aaron all run into each other. Jane is considering taking an even higher position as a managing editor where she would be. Tom's boss. Tom is engaged to someone else erin is married and has a young son so they've all moved on with their lives doing other stuff And then the movie ends on. Jane and aaron catching up. So that's the story. Let's take a quick break and then we'll come right back to discuss. When do.

"But who doesn't get good grades and therefore he will be a future news anchor. Aaron is like smarty pants brainiac. He will be a future news. Reporter and jane writes letters to pen pals and gets her hair job achiever. She cares very much about precision and therefore she is a future news producer. I really loved that scene with with little jane where she tells her dad off for like not being specific enough in his criticisms of her like. It's so fun. And then jane grows up to be holly hunter who is in fact a news producer. She works with and is good friends with adult aaron. Who is albert brooks we see. Jane gave a speech criticizing the state of like news reporting and news casting too soft and afterward tom who is william hurt approaches her. And he's like hey great job so she asks him out for dinner. It seems like things might get romantic. he also is talking about how he's not good at his job and that he's basically failing upward and she's like well. Okay get better and try harder. Which tops at him and he leaves. I hate tough. I hate tons of i feel like we know. I know that aaron is very much avila. But i do hate tom. The most out of everybody. I dislike both of the men that were supposed to i. Don't i mean. I don't know that we're really supposed to be rooting for any relationship that we are. Yeah it's it's not a movie. That is a neutral in its moral judgments. I think it does judge every character in time in the film. That's one of the reasons why i like it. So much is because it casts skepticism on all three of the protagonists which is very rare in movies. I think most of the time when you watch a comedy like this or even drama something that has gravitas. You're watching the movie decides. This is the person you're supposed to like. This is the one that's gonna make all the decisions or is at least going to reverse course on the bad decision at some point but i think at at a certain juncture in the movie for all three characters and i think for air and multiple times through the movie the be points fingers at him and says you are. A bad person are making wrong choices. You are selfish person and The movie judges him accordingly. It's really it's it's fascinating like going through the moral gymnastics this movie because there's multiple points where you have to like think about what someone just said it'd be like okay. They said that for a selfish reason. But i don't totally disagree with what they were saying but they're doing it to be emotionally manipulative and ultimately i don't like any of them i. I wanted to read tom's characters. Description on the scholarly journal pedia page because it made me laugh a lot It says tom is tall. Handsome likeable and telegenic but lacks news. Experience general knowledge intelligence and language skills. I mean i think that that is certainly true but also inclined to agree. Yeah yeah it's it's not a stretch to say that he is. That makes tom a special interesting complicated. Character is his intense self awareness of his faults. That is a cool thing to me. Not that i like tom that i walk away from this movie saint boy. I wish tom and jane got together. Because they're just great for each other and he's so cool. No he's he's a manipulator. He is a figure who is really just out for himself but he doesn't know that he's not savvy enough to understand one hundred percent of his problem but he can point out some of it. Yeah that's what's cool about the movie again. Like yeah okay. He gets it but at the end he expresses this belief in what he did being. Okay maybe even though jane is like this is the worst most unethical. They could possibly do so he self-aware to a point but when he get something out of his naievety or his perceived lack of awareness or ability. He doesn't mind some very american thing. Isn't it it. it's it's like he knows that this is not a meritocracy and that is going to work to his advantage in every way. Yeah what's the line. What's the exchange of dialogue. Where jane is like. You could get fired for that. And he's like i got promoted for that relate. Yeah he aches through the process of the movie. He is learning the full extent of his devious powers and that it's sort of like the origin story of marvel villain. Yeah it is it's i'm so unlike. What does that character look like. Twenty years down the line. 'cause it's like he almost like ahead of the curve in where news ended up going to the point where like the central ethical conversation around. This movie would barely even be a discussion. He's brian williams. Do the same thing of a similar thing to what happens if this guy was that helicopter and boy it was scary was alive sign well. Tom leaves jane's hotel room but then he calls her right away. And he's like by the way. I've gotten a job at your network so i'll see you at work in. This is the beginning of a you. Like will they are. Won't they get together kind of thing between jane and tom. Then we see this great sequence. Where jane aaron and some other staff like this editor guy bobby. As well as blair who's played by joan kuzak they like are putting together this segment and they have to like really quickly. Get it all together and like rush the tape to the people so that it gets on air and they like have like not a second to lose some great john cusack. Philly hilary duff. One day would watch that tape of the sheer pratfall. Lowery of chat sequencing beautiful. It's it's really an obstacle course. Made a real career out of playing that character in in the eighties..

"General really underlines certain toxic qualities about the masculine. Id and the the masculine. Id of people who believe themselves to be smarter or or more self-aware in reality. There are the least self-aware people that there. There is the keys the fake ally in this movie because he says to jane like you know. I'm your best friend only friend. We have the special connection. He's gas lighting her the entire movie. He is manipulating her the entire movie. And he's created this Codependent relationship with this person. that is damaging to her To an an extreme degree. I think it's really brave of him to have been willing to play that character and all of these films and to write and direct movies. Where he's playing this unlikeable character. I think the only movie that he is in that he wrote or co wrote and directed where he's not unlikable is defending your life but the rest of them kind of like. He's the reason why everything is going wrong. And i think that's a really laudable. Wonderful thing and so. That's one of the reasons why i love. It shines light on certain things that we don't like to talk about about masculinity yeah. He didn't writer director movie. But a different brooks did. Yeah james l. brooks which i was lying. That's why their friends are. They related and i don't think they are. You're not james l. brooks though was in another film. That albert brooks is and one of brooks's derogatory efforts modern romance. He plays a film director. And don't believe he's playing himself but he does play a film director in that movie so they were kind of friends from the comedy community of that time. The kind of alternative comedy scene of that moment and i believe that He was also in He was in terms of endearment before this to like. Yeah there's all sorts of fun overlaps james l. brooks really. I mean i. I sort of knew this but you know in researching the production of this movie. Oh he has like a crew that he works with over the course of like what like forty years at this point. Yeah and co creator of the simpsons. And that's one of the reasons why albert brooks was in so many simpsons episodes in the early part of the run of that show. Wow jamie what's your relationship in history with this movie. I liked this movie. I think also i saw it in college. I remember liking it then. And i didn't revisit it for a long time after and then i don't i think it was it. It wasn't until friend of the cast. Karina longworth put out an amazing season of her show. You must remember this last year about polly platt who Was really integral in this movie. Worked with james l. brooks a lot and produced this movie and when i was listening to that series i think like last summer or fall. I was watching her filmography as i was listening. And so i- revisited. This movie and was like pretty blown away by it and was really excited to revisit for this show. I think that this would have been kind of my introduction to most of these actors. When i saw these. I wasn't like a huge film buff in high school or anything. I was Very very nor me and my tastes. I take no shame in it but it but it was true to before as others movie. I was like al like literally. Most of these people were pixar characters to me because albert brooks is the data and finding nemo and holly hunter is mrs incredible so long story short. I've i've never worked in broadcast news. I have worked in news news and it was really interesting to watch after having some experience in that space and i'm really excited to talk about What about you kaitlyn. I two saw this movie for the first time in film school and hush it on you really want film students to watch broadcast news. I think it's one of the only movies. They wanna show like entertaining. This is funny. We're gonna show this funny movie instead of you know berlin alexander or something. Maybe that's why i remember it was there. Were so many movies and films like the film program. I was in the. I well boy did. I hate that. I'm sure it was competent. But what a drag in going to sleep through this. There would always be an intermission like okay. We're in a pause for a little bit. So you guys go to the bathroom and stuff and i would just go back to my door. Sleep the blue angel by max. Oh falls i wanna sleep. Well i'm about to be the villain the the albert brooks of this episode and say that i wasn't as enamored with this movie and i find it to be longer than it needs to be. That's absolutely true. I will not pretend that that is not true. Why's two hours and thirteen minutes. It could be a breezy ninety five minutes. I'm not sure why it's as long as it is. And therefore i find it a boring movie punctuated by some really fun scenes. It's not really my type of movie. Although a you know it is obviously competently made competently written and directed and the performances are really good. But it's just. I don't know it's not really my jam but there are many things to talk about. I'm excited to unpack. It's and i. I will never not be better that. It's two hours thirteen minutes on used to be longer. There's an entire subplot that was cut out. Oh my gosh. It was a longer movie. I know do tell what was what else could have possibly happened. Believe these scenes were shot. Because i think they're on the criterion but okay the shooting script that i read had a subplot where tom befriends. A state department official for employees. I think he's kind of a low level state department person but his roommate knows a bunch of people and so there is a transference of information for flirtation that occurs. And that's where. Tom gets a lot of the the information that he uses to then advance in his career is is because this the state department person finds him attractive. Trust and tom is kind of guy he's just like. Oh yeah we're just friends but he wants to take things to the next level with tom and he doesn't why it on the page at red really offensive and i'm glad they cut it out But that was a whole like it must have been an extra twenty pages screenplay. No thank you yeah. This movie is definitely already A bit long. That's just like any toury. Movie is going to be too long. But i still think that there so i don't know i. I think that this is like one of those movies. That sometimes like when i learned about the production of a movie. I like it less by the time i've learned more. This is the opposite. I the more. I learned about the production of this movie. The more interesting. I think it is cool. Well shall we talk about the story and then go from there. Yeah okay. So here's the recap. We meet our three main characters when they children. Tom who is a nice looking boy..

"Caitlyn here with a quick content warning for this episode sexual assault and date rape are brought up in a few different parts of the episode. It's not an extensive part of the movie nor our discussion but again it is discussed throughout the episode so we wanted listeners to be aware of that enjoyed the episode on the dog cast. The questions asked movies have women and all their discussions boyfriends and husbands or do they have individualism. The patriarchy's fm vast start changing it with the dell caitlyn. Yes jamie what do you think the devil looks like. Well the movie would have you think or at least the character of erin in this movie would have you think that it looks like william hurt but i think it looks like albert brooks this character. Oh he's the devil. I think i think the devil looks like woohoo in in this movie. Who does the devil most look like. This is actually a challenging question is it is it jack. Nicholson could it be here. He's well refused to give up any of his salary to save any- anyone else's job. It was all a big joke to him. Oh my gosh. That part. I was just like i can't wait to talk about it. Also honestly he. He looks like how i would imagine. The double would look just like eyebrow wise. Do you remember the movie witches of eastwick where he was. He lays the devil. Yes i do. And there's like some production crossover between witches of eastwick and this movie. Oh no way. All come together jack. Nicholson confirmed the devil. It's honor to hear i that he's played the devil. It would have been a real waste of Waste of his vibe if he did not at one point the. I hate to see a vibe wasted. So that's right. Yeah well that was my little opening. I loved it. The fact i was gonna d- do you want to hear what i would have done. Yeah sure if i were opening it i would have said breaking news. Do and then done some like news jingle and i would been like this is the bechtel cast. I like it. I like it thank you. I think we have growing options. I think everyone should sound off in the comments of what they stronger opening was and that'll be. That'll be helpful for us. Moving forward. We love feedback. Especially when it's unsolicited. Good grief okay. Well this is breaking news. This is the bhakta. Cast is our podcast in which we examine movies through an intersectional feminist lens using the bechtel test simply as a jumping off point to initiate a larger conversation The bechtol test being a media metric created by queer cartoonist. Alison bechtol sometimes called the bechtel. Wallace test in which are standard these days to people of a marginalized gender have to have names. They have to speak to each other about something other than a man. And ideally it is a conversation that is narrative meaningful right. and it's and it really cannot ultimately be about albert brooks. Which is where. I struggled in this one There were some where i'm like. Oh and then it's like. Oh but that was about william hurt or albert brooks. Wasn't it and you know that was. What was the name of this new station. What was the name of the fictional w. o. Up a who cares w who cares. We're covering broadcast news today. We sure are. I'm really excited to talk about this movie. There's so much to talk about. There's a lot to unpack and we have an amazing guest. We certainly do. He's a writer. He's host of the new polygon. Podcast galaxy brains. It's dave schilling. Hello welcome what a pleasure. It is to be here today to talk about a movie. That is one of my favorites of all time. But i also do believe that it is in fact not going to pass the test. We'll go through it later. But when i wrack my brain thinking about this movie that i loved that. I've seen many times on blu ray. I think you know first of all huge flicks with the blu ray drops a blu ray physical media. Yeah well i think. I i have A compulsion towards owning movies that i love because they do disappear often like they leave streaming services for years at a time Sometimes more than that. You know decades so i wanna make sure that when i want to see my favorite movies i have them for instance. The movie crossroads which we always get requests for but as literally not accessible to us it is unavailable. We've even set up episodes for this and then been like wait a second. This movie has been disappeared. Why is that. I don't know erased from human existence. You can buy on dvd but the dvd's also like sixty dollars. What is going on with that. There's another movie that. I think you should do at some point. Kathryn bigelow movie strange days which was on my mind quite a bit last summer during during all of the protests and uprisings over the george floyd killing because that's that movie was about you know our relationship with law enforcement and all that stuff and it's nowhere you can't buy it on physical media you have to you have to find a used copy on ebay or something. I just happened to have one from college. Because i was a physical media collector when it mattered back then but otherwise unavailable. And it's a shame because that's a movie that people need to be watching right now. That is yeah. I yeah i've never seen it and now i have no options. You can borrow my pan and scan. Dvd if anyone has copies of either of those movies lying around. We do have a po box. I like crossroads was sorry to go. to crossroads. crossroads was written by shonda. Rhimes like there's just so much going on for crossroads. I completely forget what happens in the movie. Maybe it's really fucked up and they don't want us to see it. I don't remember what happens right. I haven't seen it feels like i never will. Because of it being so inaccessible we might be fucked So dave you said. The broadcast news is one of your favorite movies of all time. What's your history boy. I must have seen it for the first time in film school. Because that was when i first started getting into albert brooks movies you know unfortunately if you are a young film enthusiasts certain age you're and you are like me jewish. I am jewish mother side. You are pushed into a the filmography of someone who we don't talk about that he's out there and he made a lot of movies or people of that. Ilk and albert brooks was never given that same amount of credibility with the film community. He was never a box office success. He's never won an academy award but his movies are so much more rewarding than other people playing in this kind of never she jewish milieu because in every film that he is in at least the ones where he's written and directed them or co written them and directed them in this one. He did not do either. But it's still fit into that sort of vibe he's the villain he's the bad guy and i. I was glad that we got to do this because it does this movie in his work..

"Tucked away. Inside the countryside of modern day belize lies one of the greatest standing ruins of the maya civilization shuna on tunisia's ancient name is unknown but historians estimate that the structures of tune each were built beginning in the seventh century. C e however the land had been occupied by the maya for much longer as early as one thousand bc in those first centuries it was just a small village but at some point in the seventh century it began to grow in size and power. The lords of the ancient maya city built ball courts palaces and temples but the city's crown jewel was the structure known as el custodio. A one hundred thirty foot pyramid topped with shrines offices and a royal palace hsun each was a thriving metropolis the center of a powerful kingdom. Then all of a sudden it wasn't the collapse of the my empire was one of the most devastating and dramatic catastrophes in human history. But it didn't happen all at once. The collapse of the classic my civilization occurred not long after shoot onto each was built around eight hundred ce. By the end of the ninth century the region and its majestic monuments almost totally deserted in less than two hundred years. The city's population had nearly vanished. Royal dynasties disappeared. Cities fell to ruin the great pyramids of the maya sat untouched for and were reclaimed by the jungle. But over the next millennium the region was colonized by european settlers by the eighteen. Hundreds of colonists. An interest in the ancient cities and their expeditions uncovered a wealth of artifacts that were shipped away to european museums and auction houses. However these pieces of history provided few clues as to what cataclysm destroyed the maya cities something had caused the empire to crumble yet to this day. We still don't know why but for a lucky few their spirits and shown on tune each who will show them the keys to this ancient mystery. If only they would listen how. To- felt uneasy as he walked through the ancient temples. There were no real dangerous here. No musket wielding british soldiers on horseback but there was a dense fog shrouded. Everything missed but hocine 'to could still see the dark stones covered in moss and the snake like lines that crept up the temple walls most days to walk the extra two and a half miles just to avoid the sight of it but today be didn't have the energy. He hadn't slept much last night or any night in the past three months. Not since his father died a scene to had borrowed money for a decent burial. He thought he'd be able to pay back but then the storm came. It devastated his crop of bananas now. He barely had enough to pay the englishman who owned his land and not a single schilling left for his wife and son. His wife was getting sicker every day. It was the same sickness that had taken his father the same fever and bloody cough and recently his son. Miguel had become to cough to how cintos didn't know why he'd been spared. His wife said it was a spanish applied. Maria said europeans were immune to the diseases. They brought to the maya and the husino often considered himself native. He'd been born on the peninsula. He was european after all had tried everything to raise money for a doctor. He begged from neighbors tried fishing and hunting but his neighbors were just as poor as he was and even if he caught a fish or a deer there was no one to sell it to how seen was watching his wife and son die he felt as if the world was falling apart which might be. Why the temples made him feel so uneasy because that hopelessness must have been how. The maya felt long ago that there was nothing they could do. Cinco continued walking toward the center of the ancient city in front of him. One moss covered building towered above the others a narrow strip of stone steps visible at its front. Something white flashed at the bottom of the steps at first husino fodder was a bird but as he came closer he saw it was a woman. She wore long white repeal and a belt of turquoise beads tight around your waist her arms were piled high with gold and silver bracelets and the skin above her nose had been painted a vibrant red.

Remembering Atlanta Braves legend and longtime MLB home run king Hank Aaron

"It was a sad day in baseball last week. When hank aaron passed away at age eighty six. One of the all time greats sluggers in baseball history. He wasn't amazing player. An amazing person. And when you think about hank. Aaron and his impact on a game it was tremendous. Think about this hank. Aaron played in the negro leagues hank. Aaron came up to the big leagues and was a star from day one. And when you look at his body of work. It is an incredible incredible degree of consistency. When you think that hank aaron batted three oh five. Seven hundred and fifty five home runs almost averaged hundred. Rbi is twenty three seasons and think about this. If you took away as seven hundred and fifty five home runs from his hit total he still would have three thousand hits. Which by itself get you into the hall of fame so not only does he have three thousand hits. He has a five hundred home. More than five hundred home runs. Those two are markers for me that automatically get my vote and then when you think about what he had to go through to become the homerun champ and the hey and the threats and the racism that was pointed towards him. Think about that People saying that they were going to shoot him. Kill his kids and this guy never never came undone never lashed out at people never got angry. Just kept playing ball kept his head down. He is definitely someone you can admire. And then he did weeks that milestone passing babe ruth and what a monumental moment that was when hank aaron became the all time home run king and i know people some people say he's still my home run king and is not barry bonds and i don't really wanna get into the whole debate about this. This is about hank. Aaron and what he did. I respect what hank aaron put up his numbers he put up but in the record books he's number two and that's where he is and that's what i respect and there's nothing wrong with being number two when when you put up the body of work that hank aaron has done he will be missed. What an impact. He's had and the grace and the dignity everything he play with and he was a world series champion and he was a steady as a as a as a get. Never hit fifty home runs. How can a guy play twenty years. Hit all those home runs and never had those big years over fifty. It's it's an amazing amazing accomplishment. And hank aaron will definitely be missed

How to market Blockchain with Itai Elizur from MarketAcross

"And partner at a marketing agency will actually to marketing agencies under the same roof when it's called inbound junction. Still active in historically into the bbc asked base. I'm a marketer for about more than ten years in the b. two b. safe-space which is very big in israel of work tel aviv based agency and about four five years ago we were getting pretty big fintech space and some are bigger and better partners in israel talks about about the growing space into my partners very early investors and bitcoin lost a lot of money in mccormack's ended just kind of opened a sister agency called market across and started working with projects. We were very active. In the seal boom downs of jean-ann we've matured with industry today. We are a full stack marketing agency working with a lot of big macs. How does marketing. How does marketing. For blockchain and crypto. How does that differ. 'cause said you're kind of doing both sides you have under one roof. How what's the. What's the core. Differences remark integration question. I would say lease the first generation of projects that i was part of thousands of so there. I always say that i think blockchain is over. Pr and marketed. Because there were actual products it was more of misstatements ideas and most of these eight based protocols again you know. You don't have a big city on the website of sign up or purchase. Or whatever. So very different from classical. I would say. Vw marketing which has literally a conversion point. Put something in relics alright optimizing towards a funnel or something like that. So i would think that that is the most core core difference between product marketing and more i would say branding and marketing and maybe even assisting fundraising style marketing. That's i think the core difference. And i think the other one would be today about. There's just so much charity very fast. So when you go to the other part which our product will be a wallet in exchange. Whatever you have environments where there's fifty or sixty comes king in two three years and it's so hard to differentiate especially for a marketer to try convey that message so i think that's how it this is so new and it kind of there. There are some leaders in some spots in the sphere. But but still. Is that a big issue. This this problem differentiation. Where we're as a marketer. You have to single out. You know you're trying to take your client and say this is why they're different but is the customer. The customer base even knowledgeable enough about about the technology that you could differentiate easily here. That's a that's a great question. So let's different you between i would say Based protocols and technology and then products like exchangeable so when people who come to us again mostly developers or developers in the blockchain space are very very techy. Maybe don't come from a business or marketing background. They'll come to us and say oh you know my network goes to eleven speed or whatever and you're in me as a marketer i'm gonna say right but what's on the block you know how many people transactions are actually processing so in. That's a. that's a big gap between when people want to sell the technical capabilities and want to say all right the me as a marketer pr person at least today people much more wanna see about adoption. So that's like. I think i'm the tech level where you need to go and say all right you're not gonna talk about triple charting. Whatever because that's not really the main thing had to bring that chored usable business use case and when it comes to product marketing and it's also a bit together. I think it's kind of like schilling. Is is great outside but when sit inside the strategy. That doesn't look right. there's a lot of exchanges. What's different about this other than you know. Argos secrete the easiest platform okay. Great but right now in other space would you giving people what's different in. How do you play on. That really executive could be the non. Kyc concept could be the fiat pairings. It could be a really good mobile interface. But we're in that place already. Were ordinary place where people are discussing that not just stating we're going to build a the nicest exchange so I think we're an industry. That's moving in the marketing. Space from wall want will ken to like our is in doing. So that's for me like my biggest mission with my clients. It's really trip. Notch it down from the potential to what's actually

Live Streaming Ecommerce: the new way to sell online

"How about live streaming shopping then the verge is Carmen has an article about how livestream shopping has become huge in China and US companies are trying to catch it on here as well. Amazon. Launched live for influencers in July instagram facebook launched live shopping features in August Google their own. That's kind of on demand. It's not live the idea with these is to make a more modern shopping channel experience with influencers as the hosts, hundreds of millions of people tuned into shopping livestream. June in China it's just keeps going up and up. Kim Kardashian partnered with Chinese influence on one of these streams in China and sold fifteen thousand bottles of perfume like that. During an appearance the numbers are rising in the US now to forty thousand people watched Youtuber Nikita dragoons live shopping event on instagram five thousand items were added to shopping carts during the segment, all her branded products. So she was selling her own stuff direct to you. The people hosting live shopping streams already have dedicated fan bases that see them as friends. So the difference with QVC is with QBC. You got to know the hosts on QVC if you watched it a lot, you might kind of know the celebrity that shows up but these are folks were you feel like if you're in the influencers audience if you watch their youtube channel, you subscribe to them on Instagram you follow their tick talks you feel like you know them. So when they show up, it's not a stranger or a celebrity. It's a friend telling you like, Hey, this beauty product works great. Check it out. Also interactivities can you can you can take calls on QVC and they do that but this is live chat people who are savvy about talking to a chat room while they're doing the livestream, for instance, facebook and their Best Practices encourages folks to reply to everyone who DMZ comments according to Ashley's article on the verge. So this is one of those trends that keep an eye on. You're probably going to see this happening more and more, and it is a different spin on the old shopping channel idea. And also. It's a it's a it's a next step from what a lot of influencers are doing on their popular channels already. I actually sometimes there are people that I follow that I like and I trust I don't know that I would consider them friends but I like their content I would like to see something like this. In fact, I would like to experience this in a shopping stream type of way rather than be like Elizabeth Instagram Ad Oh? Yeah. They tagged at the end. Yeah. Okay. It's an ad. So I think that this is it. It makes a lot of sense sure there's going to be. People who are schilling things that they don't necessarily care about and that's just advertising general. But but yeah, that kind of fun. Let's hang out. Let's be interactive to me. This is not that different than watching somebody play a video game you're you're there and you're hanging out. Patrick on a scale of one to horrified how do you feel about this? Okay. So disclose your I actually was part of a set of a whole bunch of people who who did technology on Youtube or invited out to do a series of QVC type Um trials when Amazon was considering doing some while basically some programming like that it was really fascinating because one of the people there had been a term host with a certain high profile comedian on QVC and one talking to her about some of this is one of most fascinating conversations that I've ever had because they have a huge amount of control and it's all about kind of generating a certain amount of money permitted. Or second or however the metrics running. So on one hand, this makes perfect sense to me and it's it's if you're an influence, you're looking for revenue streams. This makes perfect sense. I'm kind of curious at what point they figure out how to generate more money permitted on this because at this point, it seems like it's super experimental and then Amazon will do Amazon does and they will figure out a way to turn it into this giant money generating beast of joy. But you know I think if you're an influence and you can get involved with this and you can pick up commissions why wouldn't you? Also I'm I'm curious why we're seeing Google's experimental arm put a on demand version out and according to this verge article at least one person didn't find that it that it worked very well why aren't they doing live shopping on Youtube? Why isn't that like a product that they've launched a little surprised? Maybe it's in the works in it'll come out to.
