"Wire act being performed as Mary carillo would say and it's not that I don't understand the reasons behind that high wire act and they are absolutely not alone. Those organizations, I mean, it is the WTA and Steve Simon that are alone. As you say, David, this is completely unprecedented. Every other sporting organization that I can think of that has had an opportunity or a reason or a cause to take a stand against China and its human rights abuses over the last ten years or also hasn't taken that opportunity or certainly hasn't to the extent that Steve Simon has. So I get it, but it is, it is disappointing. I mean, the line about generally believing that having a global presence gives us the best chance of creating opportunity and making an impact. I mean. You know, if that were really the most powerful way to make an impact, then boycotts of apartheid South Africa wouldn't have worked and they absolutely did work and numerous other examples as well. I think that's a feeble attempt to create a fig leaf of morality, I think, you know, I get the high wire act, but don't pretend that this is, you know, this is a moral stand necessarily or a strong moral stand being taken. But yeah, what do you think Matt? Well, I think you've both said what I think, really. When that, when that statement came out from the WTA yesterday, I actually felt really quite proud. And it's nice to feel that. Obviously, Steve Simon gets the bulk of the credit for that, but the point John worth I made, I think, was he also needed the backing of the board members and the fact that I think so many players spoke out against it all help create that ground swell of opinion and the WTA have made their decision. And I fully support that. I think it's incredibly courageous. What they've done, obviously that feeling of pride is still contaminated by other feelings, you know, still immense worry for hung Shui and her future. I think there's quite a lot of anger that this has happened in the first place and there's anxiety about what the future holds as well. And then there's, as you've just stated, this appointment with not only the ATP's what they've said, but the fact that they're not done anything either, as you've said, what's so impressive about the WTA is that they've backed up words with action in a way that the ATP just hasn't. I mean, their words were not as powerful in the first place. And there's absolutely no action backing it whatsoever. I think pretty concerned about the IOC's involvement in this and their dealings. I think there probably is something to be said for quiet diplomacy at times, but the problem is it doesn't feel like that's what they're doing. It feels more like they're taking part in the propaganda machine and saying she's safe, but not actually producing any video or transcript of the interactions they've had with her. They're not tackling the issue. They're more covering their own back. So that's still remains a big concern. But in terms of the WTA's action, I'm just like you've said I'm really, really impressed with it. So my fault proud as well. And the story doesn't end here. I certainly hope it doesn't end here because we want news of bong shy. But that is a big and decisive move. And.

"So the semifinal lineup is set in Madrid at the Davis Cup finals. It'll be Serbia against Croatia and it'll be Russia against Germany that after Serbia defeated Kazakhstan in the deciding third doubles rubber. That was quite the thriller, Russia versus Sweden was less so Russia defeated Sweden in two rubbers, one of them quite exciting it has to be said, but it didn't go down to the decisive doubles, much that the disappointment of 44 year old Robert lynch did who was waiting in the sidelines to have his last hurrah. His last aura will now be in the bar somewhere in Madrid. But that'll be your semifinal lineup at the Davis Cup finals and we'll be talking about those two quarter finals in a moment and looking ahead to the semis. But first there is a big story in tennis or the latest development in what's been a very big story in tennis. One that's transcended tennis transcended sport even I had a BBC News alert about it yesterday. And it's the latest statement from Steve Simon, the WTA chairman and CEO regarding the situation with bong Shui, who still has not been heard from directly by the WTA or by anyone outside of the Chinese authorities. It would seem and Steve Simon has said that Chinese officials have been provided the opportunity to cease their censorship of Pong and the punk choice situation in China verifiably prove that punk is free and able to speak without interference or intimidation and investigate the allegation of sexual assault in a full fair and transparent manner. Unfortunately, the leadership in China has not addressed this very serious issue issue in any credible way. Well, we know nowhere Pong is, I have serious doubts that she is free safe and not subject to censorship coercion or intimidation. The Witcher has been clear on what is needed here. And we repeat our call for a full and transparent investigation without censorship into poncho's sexual assault accusation. None of this is acceptable, nor can it become acceptable if powerful people can suppress the voices of women and sweet allegations of sexual assault under the rug, then the basis on which the WA was founded equality for women would suffer an immense setback. I will not and can not let that happen to the WTA and its players. As a result, and with the full support of the WTA board of directors, I am announcing the immediate suspension of all WTA tournaments in China, including Hong Kong. In good conscience, I don't see how I can ask our athletes to compete there when punctual is not allowed to communicate freely and a seemingly impression to contradict her allegation of sexual assault, given the current state of affairs, I'm also greatly concerned about the risks that all of our players and staff could face if we were to hold events in China in 2022, he goes on to say that he very much regrets that it's come to this point. The tennis communities in China and Hong Kong full of great people with whom we have worked for many years. There should be part of their achievements, however, unless trying to take the steps we have also, we can not. But our players and stuff at risk by holding events in China says they feel they have no choice. But to make this decision, a huge and bold decision. From the WTA it's one thing threatening it, it's another thing following through. There have been subsequent responses. We've had this room Andrea galdi, the ATP chairman. He says the situation involving punctual continues to raise serious concerns within and beyond our sport, the response to those concerns has so far fallen short. We again urge for a line of open direct communication between the player and the WTA in order to establish a clearer picture of her situation. We know that sport can have a positive influence on society and generally believe that having a global presence gives us the best chance of creating opportunity and making an impact. We will continue to consult with our members and monitor any developments as this issue evolves. The ITF issued their statement and it reads thus the international tennis federation as the governing body of tennis stands in full support of all women's rights. Our primary concern remains punctual as well-being. The allegations pung made must be addressed. We will continue to support all efforts being made to that end, both publicly and behind the scenes and the IOC of put out a similar statement to that effect as well, referencing efforts. Behind the scenes and quiet quite diplomacy or words to that effect. Hey, he's putting his money where his mouth is, isn't he Steve Simon? This is this is quite something David. Yeah. Unprecedented really from him. He's been a quiet leader really for the past 5 years or 6 years since he took charge and so this has taken me a little bit by surprise, very pleasantly so in terms of just being mightily impressed with his leadership on this issue. And I think it's really open the eyes of the rest of the sporting world and the rest of the world generally that somebody would do this in his position with this much to lose. There can not be a more invested sporting organization in a country sort of pound for pound in terms of what the WTA stands to lose by not having a presence in China than the WTA. They are they went all in with their business into that country and built their financial foundations really for the next however many years, ten years on the fact that they were doing business in China. Now they're saying we're out unless this has a satisfactory resolution. I love the fact that even so even despite all of that, he's carrying on, and they are carrying on. And women's tennis is saying, no, we will not have it. And we will not bow to money in this instance. And I don't know, I just feel like that ultimately, whatever happens in this situation, that's drawing a line that is really important in the world. We need to live by values like that. And it's interesting to hear the ATPs approach.

"Uighur population in China. Here he claims that China has been burning copies of the Quran and closing down mosques in the far western province of Xinjiang. He also alleges that the ethnic Uighur Muslims there will he says they are at warriors resisting persecution from China. And strong words against China's treatment of the Uighur minority, which the U.S. government has labeled as genocide with forced sterilizations and imprisonments and family separation. Ozil again tweeted the power of a tweet and ran into real trouble and arsenal moved quickly to distance itself saying those are ozil's words, not ours. So again, we saw a league kind of falling over itself trying to on the one hand, not totally throw its player or its representative under the bus, but being very cognizant of the important relationship largely business relationship with China. And that brings us back to this WTA decision yesterday, which feels like the any sports organization has gone to stand up against China. Yeah, Sean absolutely. It is because it talked the talk now it is walking the walk. There are a number of organizations, sports organizations who are coming out and saying, hey, we support you. We think what you're doing is great. But no one else is removing their business from China and taking the economic hit because of that. So at this point, the WTA stands alone. We should add that it stands alone as in not even men's tennis is going this far in China, right? It's just women's tennis. Yeah, that's exactly right. I mean, men's tennis players, principally, Novak Djokovic. I did hear about it a week ago. And it's honestly it's shocking, you know, that she's missing. Have come out and spoken more about the situation with pung schuy and spoken very forcefully and said, you know, we don't like what's going on. And we do support the WTA, but yeah. Men's tennis is not done what the women's tennis tour has. Why was it so important for the head of WTA Steve Simon to come out and take this forceful stance? Steve Simon has said in statements not just the statement where he announced the suspension of tournaments, but earlier statements as well. His organization represents women and they are looking at the case of punctual as a me too moment in China, a very important me too moment. And matter of fact, Steve Simon and in an interview with The New York Times Wednesday said something like, we can't walk away from sexual assault. We are not going to do that. So it's very important not just for the alleged case of Pong Shui. It's important for all the members of the WTA. And the WTA stands for women athletes. It stands for women. That's the message it wants to get out. And that's why Steve Simon says it's taking such a forceful stance in this incident. And he's taking this forceful stance mere weeks before the 2022 Winter Olympics are set to get underway in Beijing. What kind of impact might this situation with women's tennis and punctual have on the upcoming games? This is all speculation, but you know, you are hearing from activists and China critics that they hope this kind of steamrolls into something big. You know, the activist critics have long been going after China and its human rights record. And they see this as a possibility to really get a message across and maybe just maybe create enough momentum that it might force the Chinese government to budge on important issues related to human rights. So there is hope that the WTA stance will be emulated by other sports organizations by business organizations by Olympic sponsors by Olympic athletes even. That's a big hope. You know, what we've seen in the past that China is not always willing to give in to western opinion and certainly China state run media and editorial said about the WTA. So the WTA had put on an exaggerated show with its action to pull its tournaments out. It said it's bringing politics into women's tennis. It's opening a Pandora's box and it is a betrayer of the Olympic spirit. So, you know, that sounds to me and sounds to anyone reading that that China may not be too open to listening to the concerns about Pong Shui or two open to listening about really the bigger concerns that a lot of people have about human rights violations. And as we heard earlier, the International Olympic Committee has also been the middleman in this story. It's president Thomas Bach, had a video call with punk Shui a few weeks ago, and then yesterday, the IOC had another call with her and it put out another vanilla statement saying she's fine. How are people responding to the IOC's involvement here? They really got a lot of people mad in the way they were involved. And a lot of people were saying, well, this is just the IOC again rolling over and kind of kowtowing to its moneyed host the country that will host its Olympics and it's going to pour billions of dollars. Into IOC coffers, which to be fair to the IOC, the IOC takes a lot of the money it makes for Olympics and distributes it to national Olympic committees around the globe. I just had to get that blurb in there. So the IOC won't say Tom Goldman is being really unfair to us. But the fact is, the IOC has a history of always saying we're not a political organization, but then kind of behind the scenes playing politics when it has to. The severe critics are taking us back to 1936 in fact and pointing to the way the IOC basically allowed Adolf Hitler to use the Berlin Olympics as a great propaganda tool. People are seeing similarities between that and how China is being set up for these 2022 Olympics as a propaganda tool when there are a lot of bad things that are happening within that country. So I guess it remains to be seen at the IOC can recover its credibility, especially in the case of punctual, but it feels like her initial me to call out of this high ranking Chinese government official has forced all sorts of reckonings in international sports and even politics be it in China in the IOC in international sports leagues, women's tennis, and even beyond. Do you think she had any idea that she might set off this sequence of events with this initial letter posted to social media? You know, in her initial social media post, which was quickly taken down. She had some language that basically spoke to this is not something you do in China without paying consequences. There are a lot of people who think now that she is paying the.

Chatting With the Authors of 'Change Ringing on Handbells'
"My guest today a teen stuck settling and simon gay who are the authors of two volumes of books on changing on handbells the i was published in twenty twenty and the second is imminent. Can you give me an overview of the first book the basic techniques book how it's structured and what it contains it starts right from the beginning and it doesn't assume any knowledge of changing your handbells or even on tower bells. In fact the eddie chapters would also be a good introduction to the basic principles of changing itself. We hope so. It covers everything from how to find set at handbells have about buying handbells to go about finding people to ring with and then it works through the steps in changing starting from played hunting going through playing ball hand other straightforward methods and in the later chapters it gets up to kenton oxford triple major and finally w. so stop short moving onto surprise methods which will remain subject of volume two but it covers everything up to a standard repertoire including surprise methods aka and tina. Was there anything else that you wanted to add about the book. Yes i volume. The book covers territory that quite few other older books on handball ringing cover what i hope our books stands out as is really starting from first principles so you really have to know nothing about changing. And you don't even have to be a bell ringer to pick this book up and learn to ring bells so it really talks about how to find other ringers. What bell ringing is introduces each method in a lot of detail. At the other thing about it is that it has a lot of really guitar grams. Which simon has done a really good graphics program for a so everything is not worthy in the way older bell ringing. Instruction books are so that. Yeah so we definitely want to point it at a wide audience as possible. Do you get feedback on. Who's reading it. mostly people who are already ringers. And that's probably really. We haven't done. Wider marketing of potential audiences are international groups of tune. Bell ringers for example who might want to branch out into other types of ringing.

Yeah i'm so interested in this. Because i love getting older like i've always wanted to be older. I've despise being young my whole life despite looking young and being young i had experiences of what you mean i think childhood and teenage was shit but also all of the happy content cool wise people. I knew were always old. All the people. I looked up to older people. I enjoyed their interviews. The most i enjoyed their books. I enjoyed talking to old people so much more than i did.

Apparently the first cells to die in your brain are the ones that kind of carry orion's -iety so i was the first sale i to start to die in your way. Then the anxious one so like just fucking telling lies ladies street terror peaceful anxious cells. I mean sometimes. It is generally just scary as sensible to be anxious because something scary is happening But i do think that i was just. I just always thought that life would be better when i had more. Wisdom have more answers. When i was a bit more. I dunno invisible to the world. I could just kind of like we make old people unfortunately very invisible and they just kind of potter around and do their own thing. What was it about getting older. The skardu was it be was it becoming invisible. Was it becoming the idea of less attractive. Scared you all this stuff. The when i went to the rainforest again i looked around day two or three and i suddenly like so. There's nothing here amongst these trees but says the gay is problem or something like you could eat.

You're in a therapeutic space. One might feel self conscious but so that was the that was part of the journey. The healing that was part of the lesson really the question that up really in the ceremony was was not as a question but like i felt it. What's more important to you. The shame that you feel the pleasure that you could feel and so is this. Is this when you use your finger back beckham that little starts but yes. I might totally naked there.

The preseason i don't i'm not i don't mean that for right now. My first question is how much does the preseason impact your season win. Total bets or futures typically. It's the dress rehearsal. Game that moves my needle and moves the market needle. Because that's when the starters are planning against the starters that's really the only week you see the market make any kind of adjustment. So you have the entire media universe talking about how they're drawn. Conclusions and jacksonville is doomed and the and the like just based upon one game but the truth is if you look at the season win numbers that are out there. Which is the barometer or the valuation of nfl teams. No teams had their stock. Go up or down based upon week one now. i don't necessarily think that's one hundred percent accurate and part. The reason is we know. New coaches do great in their first home. Game historically twenty one in six coming into this year and then we saw two teams laying egg completely. We saw atlanta. We saw jacksonville both be horrendous in their first home game under their new head coach i think given every other new head coach. First home game team does well. Those two teams aren't we're gonna put a red flag by them. There may be problems. That's interesting You know the one point. I would make and i know simon knows this because he lives. Where do you live. Simon south jersey. Yeah like right outside. Philly cherry hill area cherry art. So and you're an eagles guy so simon knows i do. The eagles preseason games on tv.

And you gay organization which would come to be known as the gay and lesbian organization of water surround which i the geographical area including harrisburg was a catchy. I'm just thinking about gorgeous ladies of wrestling. That's all of this short. Maybe i could have made up sometimes. Crossover episode like this around the same higher. I think i think it is. This is the yeah so two weeks coexistent with the same acronym is just a good name. Yeah so simon describes here's glow as committed to fight for the rights of gay and lesbian people in townships the founders discussed whether it should be a black Bought eventually agreed that it should allow both black and white members. Okay while simon's by conditions prevented him from attending the founding meeting. he wasn't allowed into the townships and he wasn't allowed me with molten three people at a time but he was elected in abstentia as the group's co chair so serious question. he's not allowed in the townships because of his bail conditions but he's not allowed out of the townships because he's black whereas he meant to be. I don't know i do know that. He definitely struggled to find somewhere to live at this time. But i don't know exactly what like air is. He legally was allowed to live in. Yeah i mean there must be some capacity to live outside of a township like when he lived with andrea earlier he was not in township. Yeah yeah sorry. Black paper were expected to carry papers with them like. Id papers with them all the time. And you could have on those papers information about your employment and therefore permission to live in certain areas job so it's possible that that would be available to him. Had he had a job. He was also struggling to get a job because he's a political prisoner. He's still got a court every day table night who he is like. Obviously people aren't going to employ him but yeah that's the situation but two months off the founding of glow in june nineteen eighty eight. Simon was acquitted. His friends welcome hiring with a surprise party at leeds. Chabane women meetings were held a lease my favorite venue in south africa. Yeah so. I've never been the venue ipod where we are. Probably not so. I was very successful. They offered a monthly newsletter up. They set up working groups on barris issues affecting the quake and they soon had chapters throughout your house bug when you say the quick community. Yeah with doing seeings flake. Trans people like. What's the situation there in south africa. I don't really knowledgeable. Honest like i know that they did have specifically lesbian groups and they have specifically lesbian newsletter. The when they held their first pride march which is going to be two years from when we're talking about nineteen ninety one of the people who spike that did explicitly mentioned in like an. Npr's waiting the trans and intersex people gain lesbian people. But i just don't know what what i was doing around that. I just monday because when you sort of set for founding mission of glow it was like foot the rights of gay and lesbian paypal account temps. Yeah exactly and they do as a lot of people. Do they do this time. He is gay and lesbian queer. Pretty entertaining and it's not always clear. Who is actually falling onto that query umbrella yet warriors and we've already established that at least some people in the townships kind of Flight line yes gender identities and sexual identities so this probably also of that going on. Yeah and that's kind of what. I was wondering whether it flacco limitation on the language that used a whether it actually describes the gay and lesbian actually describes the yet. I think it's probably a bit of I would guess partly it's a limitation of language. Partly it's the kind of concessions and i'm generalizing here from around. The world generally marched catered to gain lesbian people. Yeah maybe one that we can do an episode on a trans south african landell yep size simon still hadn't publicly come out as a positive but one aspect of gloria that. He was very involved with was the heyday aids activism. He had glories aids working group and he also founded barris other organizations to support people living with hiv aids in townships aids was generally viewed as a white gay disease and side. There wasn't a lot of knowledge among black gay community about aids and many of them believed that they won risk because they went white. Sorry the what he did was a lot of educational walk around teaching people about aids and about safe sex being heavily linked with glory and the gay community. These project struggled to receive government. Funding one department of health representative is quoted as saying eight is not a problem in this country. Miss x reality is illegal and we don't have homosexuals so we don't have aids. I can't believe there are always just politicians going around like we don't have gays. Yeah yeah mitt. Romney or someone else did this off this like. It's just one of those things. Like i can come to terms with you. Paying opposed to quintas. Yeah managed to pretend it's not here. I mean denying reality is walk. Conservative politicians do on many issues as part of his work. Simon traveled not just about south africa but internationally speaking back to experience as a black gay man and meeting with gay and anti-apartheid groups around the world so since the early nineteen eighties. South africa's white government had gradually been doing into internal and international pressure to reform the apartheid system in february of nineteen ninety key anti-apartheid figure. Nelson mandela was released after twenty seven years in prison and the ban on the african national congress was lifted. If we'd had alcohol like taking the drink is how am for you. Mentioned was in most times and i know he's here now. The government began to enter into negotiations with the african national congress. Ultimately moving towards a national election in which people of all races would be able to participate and to the creation of a new south african constitution the gay community began to discuss that place within this and in particular what attitudes towards homosexuality the african national congress would bring to these negotiations Sorry the anti was not outright homophobic but it was thompson..

"Anti racism is very much a political stance whereas non racism is just like we. Don't engage with that one. not against stone engage. Sorry you saw yes. The white ladyship of gaza sold his apolitical stance as being necessary for their survival. One gaza president and smith suggested that if they had taken any soul of political stance. And this doesn't just mean anti-apartheid stances but being vocal about wanting political change for queer people as myth says. It's had done that. She believes they would've been banned. And then not only would we discredit the gay movement but we would not be able to provide vital services to gay people. Obviously that doesn't make it okay. But i can also see how that is like. Yeah you can see whether decisions came from but there are only decisions available to what people. Yeah yeah i mean. And it's also like to the extent that you're able to them provide services for your quick immunity. Yeah lie as he said fussily Community also like you know there's probably a limit to the substance you can provide because you're trying to avoid any kind of political opinion anytime yet. Yeah we'll see. Yeah yeah unrealistically. The services are provided with my sleep. Social events the extra clearly like non-racist social event so very difficult under a pasha yet non-racist all white social at the same time also was billing themselves as a racial group especially to an international audience which was very critical of apartheid to quite simon again. Gaza was using us to blacken opposite image every time. There is a function of private house. So that's a function web black would be legally allowed to attend. The picture will be taken with a few doctors prominently display and that would be sent overseas. Simon decided that some action had to be taken and he began writing to various black newspapers on black gay people to contact him and to attend a meeting to discuss what they should do. In september nineteen ninety-three either. Seventy people attended this meeting the majority black but they will also close to twenty watt people in attendance. Simon says at the meeting. What was fascinating was had different. That language was to the white middle class members of gaza. They said things like we have to fight for our rights. We have to mobilize s then-ally hypothetical yet. So they originally considered forming their own black gay political organization but they lacked the resources to do it and they instead ended up filming an interest group within gaza so in may nineteen eighty-four they formerly shouted what they called saturday group because melanson and time and was elected as the group's coordinator at fast many members of saturday group joined gaza and they did have quite close relationship with gaza including mating in gaza's community. Santa bought the relationship quickly breakdown. White members of gaza began complaining that the center was left mess. That the saturday getting drunk and that neighbors were complaining. I presume that none of this was true. I think that united this was exaggerated but also a one author mark vista. His have african also pointed out that whereas white members of gaza could go out and get drunken club and going make no yes in a million other venues black. Gay people had nowhere else to go. Yes so they had to potty at the can yes. They had to in the community center because they couldn't potty in the clubs which all white and they couldn't potty in the townships because many of them didn't have the iron home. Say look with family so you can navigate potty in your family hyme yeah and that was a lot of hydrophobia there so yeah like to some degree. They probably would getting drunk and leaving mess. But there's a reason for that and obviously straight up rice to the most comes in play. It was eventually proprieties by gaza. That limit should be put on the number of black people. Who allowed into the committee's phantom cool well that for a non-racist organization. Yeah so a lot of black people at that point gaza and they began to take this out of Matings elsewhere app eventually. Finding a few townships shavings said that unlicensed balls in townships that would house them in particular. One cold leads shaving. Despite these difficulties subject group was very successful time. They organized a fine counseling service hind visits for gay people living in townships support for young people coming out as well as special events. Simon began to travel to areas helping establish brand of saturday group elsewhere in south africa. I know it's still that cold saturday group. But i feel like it's very welcoming into daring kind of may i think it is. Yeah it also makes it easy to tell someone about it without adding south. If you don't know you know they like what are we going to this. Social group called saturday. We meet once a week to hang out at the scene and if they gay. They'll go to saturday group and if you go to the pub once a week with your friends enjoy so like other like simon does say that saturday because they didn't know what else to call. Yeah i think there are benefits to the saturday group. It sounds chill appealing. Gossip did not yeah. It's also i mean you can see the benefits having a actually politically active When they're actually providing services to the community beyond so yeah. That's doing quite a lot at the same time. Simon continued to be involved in anti-apartheid activism joining anti-apartheid groups. Such as the outlawed african national congress in ninety four. He helped establish the ball civic association which was affiliated with another anti-apartheid group so united democratic front the association began with with tenants in the township of don lewis to organize action against government empire just went increases on the third of september ninety four. They organized a away or general strike from work and school and thailand. Web does a martial as around eleven thousand. People marched in protest against the renting aces. The march ten violent four town. Councillors were killed by the crowd and twenty nine protesters in Sign was protesting alone. Were killed by police. At the funeral practices on the twentieth of september. Police allowed mourners to enter the cemetery before cordoning off and arresting nine hundred mourners. Simon among them not sounds like police cannot on original police tactic. I mean you'll recall. This is not the first time. Simon has been arrested at a funeral.

"Town of devon and so i asked simon to meet him and so eto and come along just to work with me at my school a bold bold. Move another suggestion. That andre was quite young so when timing arrived at the bus pickup point. He found that they were both wearing the same matching outfits and black pants experience. That's so delightful circuit. They spent the six hour bus ride to dublin largely and silence probably because they couldn't talk openly in the presence of students and teachers really makes me question like what andre was doing here. He's the boss drive. he may have been like we'll get to the location and then i'll get to have a break. Yeah i'm hanging out. I guess. I'm more intrigued to what he told. The students engages like was this young man on the boss with them. Especially because why. Yeah simon's black rights. Some economy would be like. Oh this is my coffin. Yeah there's not really any framework at the time who black and white people to have friendships have connection. That's not an employment connection. So i have no information of what he told them maybe. He said he was the junior australia. Maybe they were on bus drivers on the trip. The bus drivers in all black. So i'll ak maybe. He just lied that he was trying this guy at the into uniform t shirt and call. Yeah anyway so they drive to devon since as we just discussed simon was black and andrade was why once they arrived in devon. They were forced to stay in. Different hotels simon's knockout in the night with his sleeping bag and on at the boss and this was the first time they really had a chance to actually talk together. About how sex. They do not have the best. Simon derisively is like we did not have sex in the just talks and i trust him because we will discuss when they do have sex so they spent awake together on the school trip and devon. They seem to have a very nice time. Andrei showered simon was gifts including ring engraved with his name with silence now on earth a fundraising shoot him. We had to simon simon. But sorry as i kind of alluded to before. So i'm gonna give to account of his mother's reaction when he returned from this trip one in which his mother love knew he was gay and said all. This guy must really care about you. He's been brian. You will this gift. And everything and one in which she didn't are but she was very uncomfortable with the situation not because of what relationship might exist between them. But because tom was socializing with a white man and time and recalls has saying tim. You've got your own family. Why are you taking things from a white man. Simon next met on right at the farm of anti-apartheid activists. Derek hanukkah west was hiding out from the police say he obviously continuing his activism throughout this time this encounter was the first time they had sex. That's how i know. They didn't have sex on the boss which simon describes as quite a disaster saying there was lots of not knowing what to do how to do things he sat down with derek afterwards and talk to the experience i have with him and simon says he was surprised. Relieved to find that. Derek was accepting his relationship with andre and willing to have a productive conversation about rather than just be judgmental so derek was the guy on the phone. Yes tying it do. They make fight accidental vomited. They like plan this out. They break activists andres non-activist. So i showed him on came there because simon was there. Okay so simon was like. I'm hiding out as you should come up yet and andrea. Hey and then. Simon was like hey derek. What do you know about guys ohio. Derek is a straight man. I brief giggle. Derek did not find anything about him being queer but he has the wikipedia article. He's well-earned enough that we though if he was but he was very supportive of simon good met in late up to simon's next birthday. His nineteenth twentieth twenty-first depending on simon's mom began to ask why he wasn't inviting girlfriend round. And so i decided to tell her about his relationship with andrei. His mother was a cold silent. Remember to asking what. I done to deserve this. What is my seen right. So that is contradictory with the previous story then yet regardless of which version of the previous story. Now there's a version of the previous story where she thinks that they're friends. This white guys showering consignment with gifts. But she doesn't yes. Yes so there's one vote on. Simon tells why she's just uncomfortable with the fact that he's like going out socially with a white man and that he's accepting things from wiedeman but she doesn't realize it's a gay relationship regardless at someday.

Just something like white but from him is have to do it again. Yeah like four years later normal. I'm still bisexual. And like for example. He does mention that one aunt when he came to the family was kind of like. Yeah it's a phase kids into being gay. Then they're doing drugs and then they've they grow out of it all. It's also the case that homosexuality just wasn't very well understood in black communities and townships at the time so i watched a documentary. Another black quia pederson talks about how she came out to family in the township and their response was just kind of confusion and they didn't understand the difference between high sexuality bank intersex assigned to a but you're not a ham aphrodite. Your woman so what are you talking about. It definitely could be the case that you know. He told his mom and she didn't get it any yet to tell his mom again. Yeah unlike his mom.

"This is Jordan. And you are here for on Mike with Jordan Rich conversations with creative people two or three times a year. I might fall in love with a book. Well, I thought to share with you. It's called set my heart to 5 by Simon Stevenson. Now another Simon an actor with the last name Peg you all know him said about this book. It's beautiful fun a heartfelt analysis of what it means to be human set my heart to 5 as a work of Science Fiction and Fantasy in which a robot named Jarred sets out on an adventure to find and understand human emotion. It's hysterically witty thought-provoking and heartfelt. I highly recommended and I'm very excited to introduce the author Simon Stevenson as together we go on my birthday. Simon set my heart to 5 for those who haven't yet read it and they will explain the title. Let's start with that. Sure. Well the reference to the fact that the narrator is an Android and his name is Garrett and his one of his things that he likes to try and seemed is reassuring the human as possible. He's learned that humans like to talk about our parents and our ancestors and Jared's operating system that he runs on was originally developed for use in domestic appliances such as the poster if you have a toast in your house, it probably only goes up to five that there are some that go to others I've discovered since right in the book, but mostly they're five so when Garrett says set it to 5 p.m. How are you express as maximum Suzy azzam whilst also kind of paying homage to his ancestors. And so my heart to 5 is is a reference to that because the book is sort of Jarod's journey of discovering things and and what they mean somewhere Isaac Asimov is smiling who the creator of iRobot know lawyers smiling or rolling over in his birth. Quite decide which one there are so many things to get to and we'll just touch on a few because my love of this book is threefold fourfold. But one of the things I loved that is the connection to movies and not in the book The Character the bot if you will Jared finds an emotional release by viewing in this case old movies, let's talk about when this takes place this story set my heart to 5 is wage obviously in the future. When do you set it? Yeah. So the book takes place in twenty fifty-three and twenty fifty four. Okay, and I would like to say that it's not a dystopian, you know, it's like I always find that I love reading dystopias, but I find them kind of too efficient and they don't take into account how you know how ridiculous we are as humans. So the 20 54 but she lives in humans have locked ourselves out of the Internet by forgetting the names of their first teachers and a favorite pet and Elon Musk has incinerated the moon just just to give you a kind of a bit of birth. Brand of the world that Jared lives right on the outside. We have Androids and so movies in 2054 then are mainly get something which is like the way I suppose popular sentiments been going for the past ten or twenty years of this point. The the the big Extravaganza movies just get bigger and bigger all the time. Don't miss her. So the idea is 20/54 want to see a movie at the the multiplex or the Megaplex is it will be known by then. That movie's going to be like a 5-hour long Marvel Extravaganza about a killer robot song Jericho speaking of isn't really that not up his street and luckily there's another kind of movie which plays which is as you mentioned old movies and the idea is that when when we locked out. So the internet in that happened about twenty thirty seven what happened was all of this stuff all the culture that was stored digitally would just lost and that would be the older movies made from about 2,000 on words were lost because they're just thought on a hard drive somewhere in the studio and So so what you would then be left with would be movies that had been stored physically on actual film and of course the movies that would be most likely to survive would be movies. Simply push them a lot of copies. So that would be the big Blockbuster movie to off late 1890s, even the early 2000s and and those are kind of the movies that Jared finds and falls in love with right now. He's among others humans who are called Nostalgia since I guess who dig that kind of thing, which is a great connection. He makes with certain human beings. I love that. Yeah, I mean I talked I quite liked the joke. I mean, I think you know, there's always people that you know like to look back and like the analog things that I'm probably one of the myself I would probably be a nostalgic in this in this future wage. But I quite like the idea that you know, if you're into sort of refugees Cinema these days, you know, you you you go off and see a a 5-hour long black and white French documentary phone 1964 and you come back and you tell all your friends it was brilliant, but they probably wouldn't enjoy it because it's an acquired taste and it's art and and all that stuff and I love the idea that in 2054 of your life. You can often see Titanic and then you come back and still sort of intellectually Lord it over your friends with the fact that you've seen this movie that is rare and obscure and they won't know about well, the references are cool because you don't own name the film's necessarily but the reader will love figuring out what they are. And of course one of them, which is very critical to the plotline really is Blade Runner. It's really great. How you wove this month. Storyline throughout and in the process just so we let people know basically what's happening. Jared is set on writing history in this case a screenplay creating a movie not about Killer Robots, but about robots with feelings kind of a nice twist for the plot. Thank you in terms of the writing of his character in his voice. It's very mechanical at times. It's also very funny and I noticed that a lot of people have noticed this multiple paragraphs and also lots of exclamation points. Is that intentional absolutely Yes, yes. So, I mean this was one of the challenges I think of writing in an Android voice is you want to make it sort of convincing but you also don't want to put people off too much wage and it's a really fine balance. I think you know we tend to think of robots has you know, they're going to be these.

So my name is Andy Simon I'm a corporate anthropologist, , a doctorate, , and I am an expert in helping organizations and the people inside them change and I've had a background in both academics, , and in business I was vp of a bank and S who've another bank can in healthcare during change. But . what I learned to said people humans eight to change. . And if nothing else a little anthropology might help them step back and see things through a fresh lens an essay due. . You'd be amazed how their brain goes from fighting and resisting the changes to embracing them and saying Oh that's right here. . So I would say, , the way forward is all around you. . If only you can see it and our job has been to help people do just that. . So I'm an author and award winning author of a book called on the brink of fresh lens to take your business to new heights, , and I'm a podcast like yourself and I totally enjoy sharing on podcast video and audio how people can help us change and humans really do hate to change they love the idea, , but they hate to do it. . So that's who I am. . Changes a dirty word to a lot of people. . I. . See it all the time when I advise people to and I even use the word adjustment I don't even bring in the word change because they hear that word they automatically just tense up and you make some minor adjustments here and there and like okay I can do that and. . I'm with you on that. It's . so many people are afraid of because they think it's this big job in for some people it might be it might be really transformational for them to go through the work because they have to look within and sometimes people are afraid to look within because. . You know we're our own worst enemies in many ways, , and especially now during this pandemic, , where we do have an opportunity to make some adjustments or changes in our lives that make us better off once we get to the next normal. . So many people feel paralyzed and they don't want to take the necessary steps that they need to do in order to get to the goals and the things that they want in life. . You know it's not personal. . The brain hates it because that's how we. . Ourselves to survive and our cultures and the stories we share our really our conversations are our reality. . The way the brain works is it takes data informs a story about it, , and once you have that story, , you think that's reality. . It's just a perception of it and you're always a hero in that story. . So you only see the things that a firm believe to be true and the line I liked to say is the only truth is there's no truth but once you have that wonderful perception of reality, , your brain is very happy. . Keeping it everything around you has changed and it's no longer often, , and so now the question is, , how do I get you to change your story and how do you visualize a new or a new business and really come to grips with the changes that are taking place? ? I often tell my clients think if this is a play, , you really know hamlet very well the tomorrow we have to play, , Macbeth what would you do? ? You find the script or you'd write the script and then you begin to rehearse the script and then you'd have. . A director to help you figure out where to stand on stage but we're trying to do that today in a moment you know used to say, , if you want to change have a crisis or create one little I know cove it was going to give me my crisis and I tell people don't waste the crisis I have clients who have been trying to do something for three years and all of a sudden. . I can do I wanted to go after that market and I can't tell you how easy it is now because everybody. . Is unsettled and unsure and all the certainty that we want to protect ourselves is gone and so in uncertainty you know don't waste a crisis and so as we help companies change to your point, , they do resist until they realized maybe this is a crisis that you have to address. . Now, the , question is, , what's the new script? ? How do I play it and I appreciate that humans resist because it's scary new fell we'll have my job. . How do I do this my business grow all the uncertainties but yesterday is tomorrow and we are futurists. . Are podcasts was ranked in the top twenty futurist podcasts but humans are futures. .
