"I want to welcome to the show Also pretty intense guy good guy Joe Kent running for Congress in the fantastic beautiful state of Washington in the third district Joe welcome to the show Hey Dan thanks so much for having me on Of course so Joe I've seen you on cable news often I've been dying to get you on as we want to focus in the midterm elections on good candidates around the country and we feel it's our responsibility to use this platform to highlight them I mean the same things were done for me So we saw you and I'm like we gotta get this joke Anthony And one of the things that reminded me to get you on the show was you would put out you had a YouTube channel which you know any sensible candidate would you want all platforms Get your material on And YouTube decided to come after you because you are a truth teller And what are they ban your account to strike you at what happened there Yeah we had a couple days of back and forth with YouTube So we woke up one morning just uploaded some content and found that our whole channel had been deleted and we got the email I posted the screenshot of that said that we had violated their community terms of service They didn't give us any specific incident We appealed kind of went back and forth in a couple of days later We got our channel reinstated They stated that because of appearances I had on Steve Bannon's show in particular that they had taken down some of my videos and that was one strike against me So a couple of days later something similar happened to Terry Schilling of the American family's project that cited his appearance as Steve Bannon as well So there's some sort of a theme there

"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. Jane's attitude about the news..

"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. Wash face okay..

"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..
"schilling" Discussed on The Bechdel Cast
"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.

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 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.

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

"schilling" Discussed on News Radio 920 AM
"Happy that Curt Schilling I did not get picked to be put into the Hall of Fame and from what I read. He's taking his ball and he's going home. He's saying Don't waste my time anymore. Don't even Consider me and also on that list that didn't get picked. Was it Roger Clemens? Danny and Steve. Gentlemen, um Well, by the way for those who don't know her chilling was wooed to Rhode Island to create some video game. Platform and company and, uh, they gave me an awful lot of money and the company failed the money. Money never went back. So, Danny Curt Schilling saying I'm taking my ball and I'm going home. Did you hear that? Yeah. No, That's exactly what he see. Posted yesterday on social media that the fact now that Hey, has not made it into the Hall of Fame this year. Hey, just no longer want to be on the ballot. In a way. I don't think he's a Hall of Famer. But for the reason he's not getting votes I don't necessarily agree with either. Because of his policy. Basically, it all comes down to his politics in some of the things he's had to say across social media and online since hey has left the game of baseball, which, you know, I think the writers of America should be able to separate on the field versus off the field. Okay, Steve on the field. I remember a very svelte Roger Clemens and then all of a sudden this Late in his career. This really Jack Roger Clemens. Mm as he aged Could that be the problem with Roger Clemens? Well, that's the better be otherwise. There's absolutely no excuse. And you could argue that the steroid era was actually the last time baseball was entertaining and borderline relevant. So you know again. I saw yesterday Barry Bonds didn't get in, and I couldn't stand Barry Bonds when he played, But when you get it when you are so good that they're intentionally walking you with the bases loaded. You are a Hall of Famer. I ate like So I mean again outside of Pedro Martinez, who was a physical freak. Uh, that entire era is a big storm cloud and either wiped them all off the ballot or put the guys like Bonds and Clemens in But this nonsense Eyes is getting a little ridiculous, and it's just making the sport look Uh, much to its reputation, which is pretentious, but not only that, but for a sport that has had a rapid decline in viewers and attention. And whatever else you would think that something like this that could draw eyes in a good way per se to baseball would be a positive thing. Where today they're basically just The laughing stock of sports again this morning. Why didn't they just ever come up with the Ask Derek. You know that, Okay? It was during the it was during the steroid era. There's a little dot next to you that so you see, like Oh, Barry Bonds? Yeah, He's a hall of Famer. You look what's that say they're you know when people go in visit? In Cooperstown. They What's that? Oh, it says he was part of the steroid era. Okay, um And as far as the press and in sports, well, professional sports himself. I think this is all part of the woke baloney, too, especially with Schilling. This is all part of the woke stuff. Oh, yeah. He was a trump supporter. We can't have him. Just well, I mean again. Let's right. Let's go back to 1920. Whatever and Shoeless Joe, whoever who's the Hall of Famer and let's find out who he voted for, right. Is that what was that the next step? No. Think about all the people who have think about all the people who are the opposite of Schilling, who have been really really nice things, but they hit 1 80 batted ninth and couldn't get on base. Should they get in? Because they were nice guys like is that the game? We're gonna play it so stupid. These baseball writers air so pretentious. And I think the only thing that we can really do to help save baseball is give everybody who has a ballot. A swirly Yeah. It's pretty good. Um well, all this one for me. You know when, when you know the whole question about O J. You know, in the Hall of Fame and all that, Okay, That's a legitimate question. Obviously, the question about Pete Rose. Was legitimate because it was actually betting on baseball. You know, OJ's was murder allegedly and and, you know, Pete Rose. It was well. He was betting on the game while he was in the game. Those I can see. But these guys also do something. There are players who haven't per se tested positive that have just had their name associated with steroids. I haven't but I could see if you had a positive test. You maybe not like being allowed to get in. But guys that is just associated with or played during that error haven't been able to get in either. So what do you have to do now? To get in B b a good player, do some amazing things and be a Social Justice Warrior. No, you did not get there in the late nineties early 2000, then you'll have a chance. Needed in what you have to come out. No, The only way to do it is to be a mediocre player for 25 years and just never leave the league like Craig Biggio and Tim Raines and all these other average players who the only reason they're in is because they played for 30 years. It seems to be the only way you get in. Yeah, but playing for 30 years video is a great player, but that guy's not all Yeah. Hey, you know who's the Hall of Famer? Tom Bevacqua. He's one of the most experienced weather forecasters in New England, and now he's right here. Jim Toledo shows chief meteorologist Tom Bevacqua. But Tommy was on.

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.
Cleveland Indians Ace Shane Bieber Developing Into One of the Top Starters in MLB
"Talk about Shane Bieber who last night another great start and it was looking at his numbers this morning. Mad. He's faced one hundred, fifty batters in those he struck out sixty five, he's allowed five runs the whole year four those on home runs runners in scoring position forty, one innings or forty and two thirds innings pitched and only been ten situations in which a batter came up with a runner scoring position, and they're all for ten when we were lucky enough. To have him on a Sunday night, broadcast a couple of weeks ago and they're not many times would do in a broadcast and you're watching pitchers stuff and it's kind of taking your breath away. But that start watching his cut fastball particular it's curb all good Lord I don't know that anybody hits him. Yeah, and you know I mean I I you had the same kind of Breathlessness when you watch him as is when you watch a handful of other guys in the League. Like Derek Cole. I don't know if you saw Casey. Anything Casey mize's debut the other night. Yeah. Man. There were flashes in there where you might goodness split finger, fastball moves screwball. And boy those guys are fun to watch the way. They can manipulate the ball and I'll use a pitching coach term, shape their pitches. By the way I don't ever remember hearing people talking about shaping pitches before rap Soto, and some of the baseball factories that exists around the country now, Yemen. Bieber is fun to watch and when he first came up I, I don't know that any of us took him seriously as an ace in wait he had terrific minor league numbers maybe we should've taken him that seriously had always been a huge kind of strikeout-to-walk ratio guy. Those numbers were always really great in line with the guy that could play in the big league level. But it it maybe it's because he came from from UCSB and it's a very small intimate list of major league players to come from the University of California Santa Barbara. Not a lot of gauchos out there I mean just top of mind and a crisper went. To UCSB, Quinn Mack ucsb Guy Ryan spill boards. UCSB. Guy But it's a small list, right? So. He didn't come with the kind of pedigree that would indicate that this guy's in there and heard you talk about this to be there's something in the sauce in Cleveland. There's something they do developmentally with the air and cer- volleys and the you know Zach Lease Accent Mike cleansers even though that discussion has taken a different track or something that happens with those guys when they get there that takes them to the next level. We we give the Astros a lot of credit for bringing great pitchers to the Uber Grade Level I. Think we have to have that conversation about the Indians as well. You Lie Spirits Sports Bureau Senate there's no chain. BIEBER's the fourth pitcher fifth instance in the modern era since one, thousand, nine, hundred, sixty, five strikeouts in his first six starts this of the. Season Nineteen seventy-eight Nolan Ryan at seventy one, two, thousand, Pedro, Martinez Sixty seven two, thousand, one, Pedro Martinez Sixty six, and then you have shamed bieber and curt schilling with sixty five. So he's off to an incredible start
Steve Bannon's arrest has tertiary ties to video games
"Former thirty eight studios CEO curt. Schilling was involved in the build a wall pack. The thing that just led to former Donald Trump advisor, steve bannon getting arrested. This is just a weird tangentially related to video games news story that is just so strange and it also kind of goes to show that if curt schilling is involved in a company, that's probably a good reason to not invest any money. So for the. Non Video game side of the story former President Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon was arrested this morning for issues related to a crowdfunding campaign. He was involved with that was raising money to build a wall between Mexico and the United States of America. The campaign raised over twenty, five million dollars, but apparently, the money was being used for personal gain Audrey Strauss the acting us attorney for the southern district of New York said. The. Defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors capitalizing on their interest and funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars under the false pretense that all of the money would be spent on construction while repeatedly assuring donors that Brian Cole fade the founder and public face of the We build the wall would not be paid a cent. The defendants secretly schemed to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to coalfields, which he used to fund his lavish lifestyle. That quote comes from NPR story. Linked in the show notes. So that's the main part of it but the tangentially related video games side of it comes from Edward Isaac Dove Air From the Atlantic on twitter who wrote Crisco Bosch is the General Counsel of the build the wall pack that Steve Bannon was just arrested for being involved in as chairman. The advisory board includes Eric Prince Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo Sheriff David Clarke and former pitcher curt schilling curt schilling is predominantly known for being a pitcher in the MLB. I will always know him as the CEO of thirty eight studios, the developer that created kingdoms of Amour with investment funds from the State of Rhode Island, which he neglected to return when required, which ultimately doomed the developer and the kingdoms of Ahmir franchise though then might be making comeback soon, there's a, there's a remake rerelease on the way. It's really gross that money was being raised to build a wall which as near as I can tell is thankfully nowhere near fruition and it's totally unsurprising that it is all collapsing under the weight of its founders deciding to just try and keep the money for themselves. Rock steady responds to recent sexual harassment issues with kind of a weird public statement. The publication. The Guardian recently released a story about sexual harassment issues at develop a rock steady games and how the company had not taken proper action when women within the studio went directly to its leadership wants the article was published rock steady apparently began to take action internally and called a studio meeting but the developer also released kind of strange statement on twitter. Here's the statement in full working on. Our response to the recent news, we received the following unsolicited letter eight out of ten people that sign of the original two, thousand, eighteen letter or still rock steady. The following unedited letter below is from seven of those people. Please note that all involved do not wish to have their identity disclosed publicly under any circumstances. This statement is sent in representation of the current women at rock steady studios who were. Working at the studio in two thousand eighteen who signed a letter regarding issues being faced by female employees. The statement has in no way been asked for or influenced by management or anyone else. This is solely the voices of those involved who are still currently employed by rock steady. We all feel the need to respond to this and to reflect what actually happened at the time and how this has been. Handled since recently, an article was posted in the Guardian regarding this letter, which was sent to the studio heads and HR in two thousand eighteen in addition to multiple other accusations. In this article, we feel that the anonymous source or sources attempted to speak on behalf of all women at rock steady, and we do not feel that this article is a fair representation of us the events at the time or. Since the letter was received when the letter was received by the studio immediate action was taken, which resulted in a series of meetings with the women of the studio to allow us a safe space to talk about any issues we were facing figuring out strategies to resolve these issues and what the studio could do going forward continued efforts have been made to ensure that we have a voice within our. Working, within the studio ranging from involvement, specifically with how our characters are represented to workshops to help build self-confidence within male dominated industries. Throughout all of this, a firm promise has been made that there always an open forum for us to speak out net issues would be addressed with seriousness none of the current female employees at the studio who are involved with the letter were contacted about this letter being released. To the media until we were informed by the studio at the time of working through the original letter with the studio, we were assured that this would be kept as a private matter. As this was what we had collectively requested we feel that our privacy and witches have been disregarded and a private matter has been made public. This has left us feeling that we have been violated by the source or. Sources as it was kept private for personal reasons, twelve involve not to industry secrecy. We would like to conclude this statement reaffirming the importance of any minority within the games industry to speak up and four studios to take seriously as rock steady did at the time and continues to do any allegations being brought forward to work towards creating safe environments for us to work in so that we can make games.
Animals Appreciate Recent Traffic Lull
"Don't worry about why the chicken crossed the road. The bigger question is whether it'll make it at all. Every year millions of animals get killed by vehicles in the US, but that road risk has dropped because of the Kobe pandemic. We're the negative impacts of the economy. family relations I'm sitting in my living room and I don't see as much of my family as I as I normally would. So there's a lot of impacts that the positive impacts of becoming more clear, and that could really change the discussion after the pendant changed some of our assumptions out how much driving we should do if we want to protect nature while by air quality climate change in so for Fraser's Schilling. Co Director of the road, Ecology Center at the University of California Davis One officials began issuing stay at home orders to slow the spread of Covid, nineteen schilling and his colleagues quickly realized they were witnessing a novel experiment. What happens when we all start driving way less? The answer is a lot. Lot of things, including fewer units and lower greenhouse gas emissions from cars in their latest report, the researchers found that driving less has also led to a dramatic decrease in road kills in three states which they had long term data. Idaho Maine and California, so actually the the largest conservation action that the US has ever taken creation of the national parks. The team documented about a third fewer collisions with deer, Moose and other large mammals in the four weeks following shutdowns. If such a slowdown persisted for a year, twenty, seven thousand large animals would be saved in just those three states. In California, the researchers also look specifically at mountain lions. Some populations in urban areas are at risk of local extinction and vehicles are one of the top killers whoever, in recent months traffic deaths of mountain lions have dropped by fifty eight percent, revealing an important clue about how to save them well to keep them from going extinct or to recover them. We need to protect them traffic, and that means we need to build. We need to put in fencing along highways and crossing structures over the hobbies, and that's that's that's a big deal. People are now returning to the roads. Stay at home. Orders are lifted, but schilling hope some of the lessons might stick. I think we can grow from this.

Update and YOUR emails.
"Hello hi welcome. It's another episode episode of the gun show and another mini episode. It's so good to be sharing this time with you. I thought in this episode. I would just do a little bit of catching up really because there's been an awful lot of feedback on the last few episodes and I wanted to read out some messages that I've had from people and also talk about in particular the episode on weight and body image because that really degenerate an awful lot of interest. So let's start with the most recent batch of incoming message from you my most excellent listeners. A lot in response to Venetia lemonade coming on the show and talking about fast fashion. We did talk about a lot not just fast. Fashion we talked about digital detox is meditation and Mental Health and also the exciting ourselves so that we're not not constantly in a state of who which which is my visual representation over excitement policies that Liz. I don't know what came over me but when when we talk about fast fashion it did generate a lot of interest in as I said at the beginning of the pope cost. I know I am ignorant about this subject and yet I am complicit in a problem and therefore I'm very happy to be the person who stands up and says do you know what I know McNair about this. I know I don't know enough but I really do want to all myself with the knowledge that I can and act accordingly moving forward and it seems as though a lot of feel the same way and Lord of you shared a similar feeling and that was the feedback that I got from you. I had one really lovely message from somebody saying just a small native appreciation for your podcast. I really enjoy your honesty and your willingness to dictate into issues that trouble so many individuals you lost episode was especially I opening for me. I've been interested in slow ethical fashion for a while now as I've had a strong interest in corporate social responsibility as it relates to the fashion industry industry. I generally believe is good for business if they if they behave responsibly. And it's a corporations responsibility to ensure they behave ethically across the supply chain. Furthermore Oh as a human I care about people believe we all must have a safe place to work. However I've also thought that maybe these individuals in developing countries may not have access to employment other than working within a factory if these false fashioned conglomerates cleaned up their supply chain production and provided a safe working environment with that make fast fashion less of a crime all we as Westerners imposing ideals upon these societies similar to colonialism? I am playing devil's advocate here. Ultimately I do think that we will reach a breaking point with stuff on the larger issue at play is capitalism on a side note. I Love Venetia take on leading less excitable life. Maybe lead less excitable live. You wouldn't feel the pressure to buy scroll grow through social media suffer with anxiety depression or other mental health issues. I feel if the tide is turning. What a brilliant message and it opens up a whole other part of the conversation and makes me think that it would be really interesting to get another guest on to talk about that supply? Chain talk about if fast fashion conglomerates cleaned up the supply chain in production and provided a safe working environment. What what will the future look like? So if that's a show that you want to listen to if there's a guest that you would like me to get on or if you would like me to search for guest you could speak on that then do let me know but I thought that was a really brilliant message and I love hearing from listeners. As you know another message I received was. I've just recently you discover your podcast and I'm really enjoying it to the most recent one of fashion really struck home because I've found myself. Czar aisol since January two thousand nineteen. Well done on and I will continue to do so going forward. I really wish that you and your guest had addressed the world influences play and our obsession with foster fashion for example twenty was mentioned by owning a positive way and there were so many like her and probably worse in terms of schilling tons of fashion. I think that as long as you cheap fashion holes continue we will never get a handle on the massive. That's a problem that we've created. Thank you for putting out some very interesting content. That's really interesting and it's not to say that that wasn't a conversation that we ended up sort of unpicking off off line. We didn't deliberately have it offline by the way it was just something that came up and I think the thing I would say about that is. I think it's really difficult to point the finger finger at influences if actually if you were to say to them I as I did when I started exploring this subject they they might be in a position from where they actually say. I sort of know that there's a problem but I didn't realize it was as extensive so I think it is. Maybe something that needs to be dealt with differently without naming names if that if that makes any sense obviously if there are people doing youtube holes about what they got in store than that not come be troubling and troublesome if then prompt people to grow and by the same thing obviously Brown's corporates just want US buying buying buying. Because that's how people make money and I do think that it is definitely worth exploring. And maybe that's something to have in another conversation but clearly the episode on fast fashion definitely really prompted an awful lot of feedback. Similar to those T- messages. There were a lot of comments as well but I think it was all first foray into just sort of lifting the lid on it and really understanding am I think I will definitely be trying to get guests on in the future who can speak with more authority and knowledge about the bigger issues on the things that have been brought up in some of these questions and how that all plays into it but basically this is a big thank you to everybody is taking the time to send such brilliant considered bright wonderful messages. I really really appreciate it. And it's really appreciate you taking the time to get in touch and talk about the other episode that has generated a huge amount of feedback and it kind of ended up being a bit of a double whammy. I talked about the book brain over. been which I read towards the end of last year and felt made a real impact on my life because I felt as though it gave me the information I needed needed to adopt mytalk relationship with food not mytalk relationship with my body but my toxic relationship with food and as a subsequent sequence I have lost weight and there were so many questions when I originally talked about this on the episode with training at the beginning of twenty twenty that I decided to do standard I in episode last week and the feedback has been absolutely huge. Probably some of the most feedback. I caught on a single episode. Ever people saying saying thankfully that they understood where it's coming from and the reason why I say it was a double whammy is because I recorded the episode because of all the messages I was guessing and said Oh and I also recorded recorded an episode with Alex light on her podcast. Talk about it in much more detail and as it happened not long after I finished recording minus leprosy. Alex walks up me and said to say you know you're episodes going live tomorrow. We obviously were very similar wavelength and from that. I then got a lot of messages from people saying I've just listened to you episode which was really raw and the most open and honest I've ever ever been about how I feel about my body and the complicated complicated relationship I've had with body image all of my life. I've never been scared. I've published over three hundred fifty cars in the last four years and I have never been as worried about anything. Anything going live as I was about Alex's podcasts because I I was very worried it might upset people or make me sound like complete moron on just needed to get a grip as the trees royal lower says it's the five G.. Good go get a grip go. And that's what I worried about. But actually the feedback has been. Even the other people heard themselves in what I was saying which is really lovely to hear. It's always nice to know that you are not alone in something. So really the feedback from that has been huge and I just want to say a huge thank you. I can't read out every single message because this would be the longest podcast I've ever recorded. But I just want to say that I've tried to get back to everybody personally eh particularly on email on an we talked about a bit in the facebook group but just to say I hear you I. Yeah I know how complicated it can be and I know that there were quite a few people who are saying but what did you do what did you do you want. You read the book you doing particular Diet. I don't think that's helpful. Oh I think everybody's interpretation is is their own and that's how you make it work so I haven't gone into specifics but all I wanted to flag up here really is just a Just a reference the fact that if you if you only had my episode and you want to hear in more detail about quite how complicated relationships with food and my body then I will put the link in the show Alex's podcast and that's really a place where you can hear is really delve into where for over an hour just to say that Alex has has invited me to go back on the podcast because she has had a lot of messages to and she is asked if I would go back and also those questions for her listeners. So if you have anything that you would like me to answer I don't want her show. Please do let me know or get in touch with Alex. Because that's definitely something in the works in the not too distant future which brings me to my final point for this mini any show. which is I put on instagram recently? And asked me not ask me anything but a question saying he. Would you like to see on the podcast. It's my intention in two thousand twenty. Two really really really tackles topics that maybe don't seem like a maybe on topics that we've ever gone there before on this podcast which is one of the reasons why I kinda bounded into twenty twenty with a conversation to our conversation with a professional dominant because just to set the scene of we're always going to be beauty we're always is going to have a brilliant brilliant pal from the beauty industry

"schilling" Discussed on KTAR 92.3FM
"It yeah interesting and and Curt Schilling is an interesting character to say the least well what well I mean I like I think about and I think a lot of folks around here remember that World Series run there hasn't been a more I think her chilling was an amazing baseball player amazing picture the D. backs as well as one of the reasons they won the World Series him in rainy Johnson at least Gonzales I mean what a nucleus of great players I just don't think that this is what we would want for Arizona when it comes to a congressional seat she okay so other athletes have parlayed their sport some careers into politics but I don't know if if they've been this controversy awards as Curt Schilling okay so I'm not going to soon that everybody listening right now is aware of the behavior Curt Schilling his hat off the field since retiring so to speak from Major League Baseball because he kinda left Arizona went back to the east coast a lot of this happened when he was back there right sure shell sees me he he's made some controversial remarks remarks that have been I'm not even remarks but just social media posting carried that have been so insensitive that I don't know he was fired from ESPN for them I remember that yeah that one ever that that was one where there there's this picture and it was a really in appropriate prepared us with you I'm a guy and it was an overweight guy he was wearing a wig here here women's clothing on parts of the T. shirt was cut out and his chest was exposing the meme sad you to create the meme but the meme said what a man to the restrooms with your daughter or else you're narrow minded judgmental unloving races bigot who needs to not ask the bed bath bathroom bill things some chilling then added to that a man is a man no matter what they call themselves I don't care what they are who they sleep with men's rooms were designed for the **** women not so much now you need laws telling us differently pathetic okay and that didn't go over ESPN says we are an inclusive company Curt Schilling has been advised that his conduct was unacceptable and his appointment with ESPN has been terminated here's the thing Norton now I do because I mean if you if you want to take that one okay in two thousand fifteen he compared to Hitler meme on Twitter that seem to draw a connection between Muslims and **** there for the court you wanna see one of my favorite yeah okay let's take you back to November of two thousand sixteen shelling tweeted a picture of someone at a trump what rally wearing a tee shirt that said rope tree right journalist some assembly required right here's the thing you talked about other athletes that have parlayed their celebrity or their talent on the field on the pads on the gridiron whatever it may be into other avenues maybe political maybe business wise whatever maybe I think it's going to be really difficult for Curt Schilling to parlay this into a congressional seat in Arizona because we know who he is he has already let us know he's telegraph the punch other times Bruce we got a lot of in the office to find out who they are so please already told us so guess what folks when somebody shows you who they are believe them here would be can I make a comparison shore and I make comparison the same team if Lewis gives Aulus announced he's running for Congress I honestly don't know Luis Gonzalez's positions on almost anything now I don't know what the leanings are writing wish and so he gets the paint that picture and tell you as he moves forward Curt Schilling does not have that opportunity he's been painting the picture himself away from baseball and you know what he can do that however what kinds of a title to everybody's got an opinion right you know they say about that the thing is do you want that representing you here in Arizona he also I would argue the timing seems a little odd why because he's talking about moving back to Arizona and running in a quote blue district public works but I'm going back there are gone and running one of the one of the blower we don't have that many blues you know I could be o'halloran in district one it could be Kirkpatrick down there in southern Arizona but we've had pulling people we've had demographer's on saying Arizona is moving more towards the middle and is a true in some places politically across upstate purple is that you hear it and that Curt Schilling is representative of where the state is not much less than a blue district where there's no there's no evidence it's going to be less blue in the next election right I mean it might be swimming against the current yeah if you would have come back to Arizona you know right right after he left Major League Baseball and made a run more not much more welcoming and some of these this but there is on is changing it is and not towards him it and not towards those beliefs and like I mean it's moving away from the you know sheriff Arpaio yeah I'm more torture of pens own do you see what I'm saying a good a good example so different style and you you you can take from that whatever you want but I mean those two gentlemen have vastly different case and approaches and stances airlines I mean like you can draw a really clear line between those two sheriff's thing is happening in Arizona as far as you know what we want to be represented by what we stand for and where we're going look at the last election yes exactly had the Democrats elected state wide we have a democratic senator we have a chance maybe having two democratic senators coming up here's a little bit more from Curt Schilling something that I wipe my box about heat now becoming more and more comfortable with that okay are you comfortable with it I mean this is somewhat of a trial balloon that he's flown out there we know how this game is played it is not as the worldwide have on it a port right exactly you there there there's somebody out there right now listening to our show going what do you what do callers in Arizona I have to say listening to KTAR about a possible Curt Schilling run for Congress will you know what what I'm here yeah what do you think about it is

"The Diamondbacks to the giants coming up with joined by the hall of Famer John Miller, John. How are you? I'm well, it's another beautiful very mild day in the desert. And I haven't heard from anybody as to whether they plan to open the Ruben, I'm guessing that they will because the high is supposed to be only eighty one degrees, right here. So a perfect day to be out of doors to play baseball. And, you know, remember Randy Johnson, schilling were here. They always made an issue of keeping the roof close. Right. They wanted the roof closed all, especially schilling. Schilling was the, the, the stories that I heard he was the guy who was really would get upset that they would ever open the roof if he was pitching. He wanted to closed. And then if they opened the roof than they wanted those big panels out there to be closed, and if they opened those he thought that they were picking on him. So Bob Brenly. Of course, he was the manager when they won the World Series in two thousand one and I had the great pleasure. Broadcasting that World Series. It was pretty memorable a seven game World Series. And the d backs beat the Yankees in the seventh game but. That was the series where schilling work three times. He started three games. There's like old school worked on three days. Rest pitch three times including game seven Randy Johnson made two starts, and then the day after his game six victory, he was the closer for game seven and ended up getting a win. Because they they they won the ball game in the bottom of the ninth inning. So. Randy Johnson ended up getting three wins in that series. And Curt Schilling made three starts, and it was like you had to great pitchers, and Bob Brennan figured out a way that maybe he could almost have the two of them be the only pitchers used in a whole World Series. But so they want it. And we may never see another World Series performance, like the two of them put together, one of the great one two punches in anybody's rotation of all time, especially in World Series play it was fencing. Randy Johnson last night, commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of his perfect game forty years old, and Steve Gilbert was on from MLB dot com and did a story about Bradley who was the manager. They were afraid to warm anybody up late in the game. They didn't want to upset Randy Johnson. Well, Bob Brennan has often and he talks about it sort of laughingly with, with a lot of warmth, because they were so great. But he said. Sometimes it wasn't that easy in terms of because they were you know, they were like. The big movie stars, the, the big opera divas, they, they needed to some, you know, certain kind of attention and care and handling. Because while we all thought, man, these guys are great and hitters fear them for them. It was being the guys. It wasn't quite that easy. And so they had their own insecurities and whatnot. So that's part of being a manager in a good manager is understanding that and figuring out how to, to handle all the different egos, and the different. The different things that guys have problems with the kind of feedback that they need to, to succeed and whatnot. My wife practices something called non violent communication, which is kind of an interesting movement. And, and I think a manager has to practice that, that, that same kind of thing to empathize with his players, and to, to kind of let them know that, that you're there for them that you understand what their concerns are letting them know that you hear them and then try to make the situation, the best possible for them to excel and sixteen. Well managers years ago, would never be concerned about that. I remember the stories about Paul Richards if Paul Richards wanted to tell you something of the three of us are standing together, he would tell the coach now tell John Miller. He's not gonna pitch tomorrow. He would never say it directly. Anybody? That's the way they were Paul Richards was a guy. When I was in Baltimore, we had a longtime scout named Jim Russo who would scout the opposing teams and whatnot and create a report when they would go into play a series and he told me the story about Paul Richards being a manager in the fifties. And he heard some kind of a story that a sore arm had to do with tonsils and in those days, people just kind of routinely had their.
