"Thomas karen not welcome to the podcast. The stole a game from the red sox on saturday ended up being their only win the series despite holding leads. Three one with two outs in the ninth and four. Nothing entering the eighth with a no hitter on sunday. Which loss were you more devastated by. I have to go thursday. And i don't really even think it's close thursday pissed me off that was that's you're coming into that series with how much momentum you're five and one in your last six games against a skeleton crew You power into thursday. You have that lead late and you call you. Yeah you punch back and then you cough it up again. Their losses that you simply can't have as a team with world series aspirations. The you look around the league and then and then once again the yankees have another worst loss of the season on sunday depending on depending like you said depending on how you look at it. I think thursday was worse because they could have set the tone they would have been playing with house money with garrett cole on the mound on friday And like you said kind of tailor made for them in that one garrett call on the mountain water rodriguez leaves early with an emergency injury. Replacement and nothing.

"skeleton crew" Discussed on WABE 90.1 FM

"Was part of a skeleton crew of only eight guys. So to follow them, all right? He needed to assemble a bigger army. I built a force of 2000 men that took about two days cost me about $4 million had a big Rubbermaid trunk of $14 million with May and I made my communications officer sleep on top of that every night. Whoa! Wow. We got down to a schoolhouse at the foot of these mountains. It's a huge mountain range. And Bernsen knew that bin Laden was gathering his forces somewhere nearby. Can you describe the mountains of it for me? They're covered in like pine trees. They're very sharp. They're steep. To find bin Laden Way took four of my men send them up into the mountains with donkeys and 10, Afghan guards. Climb for hours. Heading toward a high point in the mountain range, hoping to be able to look down and get a view of bin Laden is people we were listening to radio comes one of our guys who's a native Arabic speaker who'd been listening to bin Laden for 10 years. All of his intercepts. We had him moved out their position and he was with the team that was there and we were he was doing the intercept himself. Wow side note. I'd leader learned that the Al Qaeda folks knew the Americans could hear them, and they even warned bin Laden about it. His response. Let him listen. Quote. I want them to know where to come. Bin Laden was assuming that the Americans would parachute in just like the Soviets had back in the seventies. And if you'd lure them to Tora Bora landscape he knew and they didn't He'd have the advantage. Well, we're on top of him. It.

Hired Guns are Driving Up Some Gig Platform Stocks

"The labor market is still recovering unevenly from the pandemic's impact the health of the job market swings wildly from industry to industry but one group of workers is winning almost across the board freelancers. A recent survey by upwork. A freelance job search platform found that more than thirty five percent of the. Us workforce is now doing some gig work that's an increase of roughly two million people from last year. It's not hard to figure out why as companies try to get by with skeleton crews. They occasionally need some extra for higher but don't want to incur the expense of a full time employees and people who have lost their jobs sell their time and talent as independent contractors to get by freelance platforms like upwork offer easy matchmaking. between workers and gigs. here's how it works companies post. Their temporary talent needs and freelancers answered the call companies. Get the talent. They need freelancers. Get the gigs. And upwork takes a cut of the growing number of transactions and those numbers. Add up upward crushed. Its third quarter earnings estimates earlier this month. The stock's price is nearly tripled over year. Another freelance platform with a much broader base of job offerings is fiber and. It's also having a very good year in late. October earnings call. The company said it expects revenue to be up. Seventy five percent overall this year like its rivals. Fiber is benefiting from the flood of freelancers in the marketplace and the number of companies seeking additional help from contractors but the past year has an entirely been a bed of roses for freelancers and freelance platforms. As we told you in august a wave of legislation is redefining. What it means to be an employee making it harder for companies to lawfully hire freelancers. The i was california's. Ab five but similar legislation has been introduced in a number of other states and at the federal level in the pro act which passed the house of representatives. This year in california. Ab five was especially punishing rideshare workers in an attempt to force companies like uber and lift to classify drivers as employees however in the recent election voters allow drivers to remain independent bypassing proposition. Twenty two now they can remain independent but are subject to certain wage and hour regulations freelancers and business groups and other states continue to fight the legislation. There's another issue with these platforms to transparent displays of hourly rates and the competitive nature of platforms leads contractors to underbid to get the work as eric based consulting firm. A connect says quote the tenders of freelance platforms are forcing prices down. And they're taking a big chunk off the top of those lower fees to both upward and fiber charged freelancers as much as twenty percent of the transaction depending on the cost of the project. Even so some freelancers like the fact that these marketplaces have lots of work that needs to be done. So they're willing to accept less money to forego finding the work themselves and with so many more freelancers on the market. Now a gig in hand may be worth the sacrifice.

Slab City - The Last Free Place In America

"Hello, this is Stephanie. And this is cocktails and trivia the show. I talked about Society culture pop culture and a little bit of trivia so that you can have an enlightening conversation. Listen. I am a med researcher when it comes to be doing the research on the topics that you find interesting and giving you that trivia so that you can be intelligent look at Myton and stump your family and friends all at the same time here. We're coming up on the holiday season. So you want to have something to talk about at that dinner table and this is perfect for you. Today. We are talking about something that is really intriguing and interesting and something that's kind of like what I talked about last week when I talked about the Kowloon walled City in Hong Kong this time. I'm talking about a city job. That's in California and the United States of America sit back relax and listen and enjoy my tail about Slab City. I hope that you enjoy it said well, what is Slab City? Where does it all about? It is the last free place on Earth among the desert of Southern California. You will find Slab City Los Feliz.com wrote about it two hundred miles from LA and 150 miles from San Diego in the margins of a county that has the second highest unemployment rate in the country. You are free to resist, but you must adapt on Wikipedia. I found that prior to the United States official entry into World War Two the Marine Corps made a decision to cite a training ground for field and anti-aircraft artillery units to create the training base. 631 Acres were obtained after a construction was completed Camp Dunlap dead. Was commissioned on October 15th. Nineteen forty-two the camp had fully functioning buildings water roads and sewage collections. The base was used for three years during the war but by 1949 military operations at Camp Dunlap had been greatly reduced but a skeleton crew continued on until the base was dismantled and by 1956. Well, all buildings had been dismantled though. They're concrete foundations remained and that is where they got the name Slab City. It was determined. The land was no longer required and the deed did not contain any restrictions. All of the former. Camp Dunlap buildings had been removed. The remaining slaves were not proposed for removal and the Washington Post. I find that since the 1950s Slab City has drawn a variety of people such as anarchists artists drug addicts home. Centrex outcasts retirees and the impoverished that's practically everybody in the whole world and it is a sad truth that the very addictive drug met is fairly common and accounts for much of the crime in Slab City interesting but not altogether that surprising after doing that episode on the Kowloon walled City I learned so much and it is the same type of situation here in Slab City not unlike the Kowloon walled City at all slash city is Lawless talk dirty with crime and Anarchy. It's not pretty and it doesn't bring to it the best elements of society, but it is home year-round for less than 300. No mad, but life is hard rough and scary and the desert campers and old RVs are living quarters for these squatters that don't pay to live on the barren land. That's right. Yep. It is government land that the residents don't have to pay for Slab City is a town with shops and a culture of like-minded people will for the most part and it has the internet cafe where you can charge your electronic devices and sit and have a cup of coffee with your neighbors. This Cafe is the only place around with it. And it's run by solar panels from the same man that runs the internet cafe a tenant of Slab City can watch TV play video games and have a way of the world outside of this desert city up until two hours before the sun sets. That's when the solar panels stop working each tenant as it is with any homeless person and much money in Walled City must find ways to pay for food laundry clothes drinking water and anything for their own Comfort. It doesn't have the modern conveniences that most Americans dead. For granted and the one shower is owned by a man named George the one person in the slabs who has a water tank that he turns on when Neighbors come to take a shower. He charges $3 per person despite not having government officials watching over it. There are helicopters that are really border patrol flying over the city every so often took an eye on the occupants. You see Slab City being only 50 miles away from the Mexican border. That is why they need border patrol. Why would anyone want to live this way though? You say that's all it takes a thick skin to be able to handle the desert life. One of the slabs of the occupants say that it has been amazing living there. When you see Slab City on the videos or pictures of Psalm City. It's hard to imagine anyone living an amazing life there. But these are people that have finally found acceptance and in otherwise cruel world some have had trouble with the law. In prison or can't cope with the outside world. And what about the children of this Lawless City? There are children the few children do attend school and that's their life, but not a lot of investment for them and in the summer at night the occupants get a taste of the world around them. There is great music singing and dancing and the small businesses are open out for the tourists to come by and the tourists are upwards of two thousand people and the summer that want to see and experience a bit of the Lawless ungoverned lifestyle and there is so much to see

"Own right folks. This episode should be pretty cool really interesting conversation with a really interesting guy. Kevin Zinger is an entrepreneur. He is an automaker. He's a technology guy. He kind of does everything but his car is basically three D. printed which is really really cool. So we're talking about that but we're also talking about the total environmental cost of cars. It's really really interesting conversation. I don't WanNa get too far into the intro. Just get into the conversation. Kevin Zinger of Zinger Automotive. Hello everybody welcome to the podcast. Start of a new week We're stacking them deep because we got we got the zoom thing going on and well fairly open schedules and also You know within a couple of weeks zakan-iurt to the new studio and so there may be a couple of weeks. We don't have a functional studio and so By getting ahead a little bit We're GONNA we're going to handle that situation logistically a little better. So the content river keeps on flowing even while we are loading gear into u hauls and moving across the street that being said well when the show today we have a special guest Mr Kevin Zinger of Zinger. And just like he told me earlier like Zarre bizarre. Russia's Ceesay mean is pronounced Zee. Welcome Sir thank say about smoking tires. Be while there. How's it? How's it going on your half of Los Angeles all? It's a very nice evening turning into twilight beautiful around my home And it's a pretty typical workday. I'd say on the engineering side that were having very productive days through our VPN network and The factory is less productive because we have a small crew there were. We're mainly doing to support the local medical community and also in Texas were or manufacturing the equipment facials mass and related pb equipment using our Plastic Three D. printing equipment. So there's a skeleton crew there. That's that's so you you you got a couple of companies going on. And they're they're intertwined I learned about divergent which is the three D. Printing Company A couple of years ago I had some conversations with one of your people about trying to drive. Something called the blade which I still love to drive if it still exists somewhere And then now. We've got the singer car which is a different thing a new thing so tell me how all this works. Kevin. Well I'd all works is that You know having cofounded a car company and Co founded the Battery Company and having grown up in Cleveland with brothers as Karma Gannex Most of my life has been fixated on cars and building cars and thinking about cars and one thing you very quickly learned is been when you're going to design a car and build a car. The biggest issue is turning those ideas and that engineering and how into an actual physical structure. That is the car right. Yeah hard looks as they say. Yes so you look. For example you go to build an EV. You're even converting A car into an easy. That's an existing internal combustion. Engine car When I was running an easy company I ended up spending more on Just retooling the body to convert it to a EV from an internal combustion. Engine car like about two hundred billion dollars. And that's over in China where it is cheap as it can be more on that than I spent on building for designing really the First Press Matic Automotive Battery Module Act Thermal Management Battery Management System in that a million square foot manufactory which opened in two thousand ten and gene spent more money on retooling that garden all that technology developed and I looked at it and said this is what is broken in this industry. This is what is actually truly broken

Fund established to help North Shore food service workers impacted by COVID-19 closures in Massachusetts

"A north shore organization has started an emergency fund to raise money for restaurant workers impacted by coronavirus closings dandan auto with the group behind you spoke with WBZ's Carl Stevens behind you is an organization that seeks to help food service employees in times of crisis previously we had helped folks who were out of work for up to four weeks due to an unforeseen illness or injury however in recent days with a corona virus we have pivoted and are trying to raise emergency funds and disperse those funds as quickly as we can to anybody in the food service industry who is out of work and how are you doing that we have used Facebook Instagram we've used email and we've used our network of restaurants to try to get the word out in order to raise funds and we're matching at least the first twenty thousand dollars that we can raise from our own accounts that's pretty substantial commitment can you talk about the need out there right now I mean they need is is great I I don't think that we've ever seen anything like this in in this industry but with the recent order to close restaurants at just about everybody is out of work it may be deceiving to some folks who see that restaurants are open doing delivery and doing take out but they are largely running with skeleton crews mostly made up of in most cases management you've been in this space for several years and you know the individuals who you're talking about those who work in restaurants for not making a lot of money and there's not a lot of financial wiggle room I wonder if you could talk about that average person working in the average restaurant while the sudden doesn't have any jobs sure I mean these these people are living paycheck to paycheck when they are quote unquote fully employed so when they lose that that paycheck that they're getting whether that's salary or are mostly tip based there is no safety net for them they may be able to apply for unemployment in some cases but that's not going to fully replace the income they had and it's not going to show up for a while so these folks need to feed themselves their kids they need to pay rents and I you know I can only imagine that some people are going to have some increased medical costs very soon let me ask you finally if people want to help out what should they do we do have a Facebook fundraiser seek and to check our Facebook page behind you ink or you can go to our website which is behind you in cats I.

"Good even the holiday weekend and you have to get up and work is it harder Mondays can be difficult as it is they can be a bit of a bear if you really enjoy your weekend they could definitely be a bit of a bear or if you're like me and you worked most of the weekend it feels like Monday came warn you to quickly and in our case Sunday night but it can also be a lot quieter at the office or quieter your place of business on a holiday Monday if you're working and it's more of a skeleton crew that's what I like about working holidays one of the things I like about working holidays and I work all of them until thanksgiving Christmas is that nobody more of a skeleton crew and definitely no boss and there's no traffic on the commute home boom I'm here for the no traffic commute it's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio I always enjoy working holidays as well because we often have listeners who don't tune in on a regular basis maybe they've never even heard the show before because they're out of their regular routines staying up later maybe traveling whatever it is that tell you do you want your holidays if you are catching our show for the first time in a long time for the first time ever we're always glad to hear from you thanks so much for tuning in you can find me on Twitter a all radio also on our Facebook page after hours with Amy Lawrence as I say it was a working weekend I had a couple of Columbia women's basketball games on TV it was fine it was it was a good home weekends on Friday night not only was it Valentine's night but it was also Columbia's annual play for K. game and for those of you who are familiar with women's basketball maybe you know what this is about but okay yeah al was the former NC state women's basketball coach a hall of Famer who four times battled breast cancer and continue to coach whatever she could an indelible legacy her impact as well as her spirit I will never be forgotten and so every year during February college basketball teams most of them women's teams but a lot of men's teams as well they'll wear pink they'll have peak access pink warm ups pink shoe laces the the cheerleaders that Columbia had pink pom poms in pink bows in their hairs and hairs I was wearing this fuchsia pink sweater and scarves and my partner was wearing a completely different pink shirt so we totally clashed and we were obnoxious pay but that's kind of the point and so that the foundation that raises money is approaching eight million dollars for breast cancer awareness and research and you can imagine where that money has made an amazing impact side so it's always an honor to be part of the play for K. gave a plus like I said it was Valentine's night and and that was good to have a please court side for my first love which is basketball play by play the reason I got in this business when I was well I got in this business originally but but the reason I decided I wanted to work in sports going back to when I was sixteen years old so that was a good portion of my weekend both Friday and Saturday hello by the way if you want to see my crazy attacked we picture pink I did and I might tell I might put a picture of the pick up just so you can see there was by all right anyway it was it was good to be part of that and we also spent some time talking about all star weekend and the the tribute the poignant moments that were dedicated to Kobe Bryant and also the lake commissioner David stern but as I said a couple times on the show the timing worked out perfectly because if the all star game have been any closer to the death of Kobe and his daughter and the seven others who passed away in the helicopter crash it might not have felt right for the players to enjoy themselves and in these all star festivities and your was bitter sweet when Magic Johnson got up and addressed the crowd inside United center and it was dark other than the spotlight in the player standing behind him there were tears but in addition to the sadness over missing Kobe there is now also this hope and this desire to carry on his legacy this desire to play with that same fierce competitiveness that really Kobe identified with in fact it was so annoying at times that he clashed with his own teammates because he couldn't bar for a second stop being intent in fighting for everything that he could get on the basketball court as he got the sense that now three weeks later there was some healing for these players who were finally able to get together in one place and really support one another be together as a group that often helps is not one of the positive the funerals as difficult as they are very often funerals give us a chance to commiserate and to mourn but also to remember fondly someone that we all have in common that we all love that we all cared about and so this was a memorial service in its own right even as we wait another week for the public memorial that will take place at staples center but three weeks is long enough that the NBA world wasn't still paralyzed with grief if it had been two weeks after or even a week after maybe they end up not wanting to play unwilling or unable to participate but enough time has passed time the very often can feel like a curse because it never stops but in this case is a blessing because that dole's some of the pain now there is hope and there was joy inside the United center there were smiles there was this.

Singapore Airshow dealt Coronavirus blow

"We're in Singapore which is quite possibly the most unusual escher in our collective memories We are of course hit during a week. Where the corona virus has had an impact on Travel plans for those this coming. From China that would traditionally come to the show but also from others in the region including From from further further away including major exhibitors exhibited who have been somewhat nervous about attending the show. Let's talk about this a little bit. WHAT SUV attendance rates? Let's have we seen a decline with the major exhibitors. That didn't show up. Well I mean obviously the numbers significantly down we could see that for for ourselves. Almost immediately. I remember two years ago. This show it was like sort of piccadilly circus in the Russian to get through the the channels between Shell as and the exhibit will this year. There was no problem. That's all it was very easy. The other point was when we went up to the the Static on there was a lot of span space on the ramp The biggest hall of course. Being the absence of Boeing's ego demonstrator triple seventeen hundred which there were hoping to bring to the show in fatted sets off. They go to Tokyo But turned around when they Threat level was raised to orange just on just started so sadly significantly impacted of as far as I could. I'd say anyway. Well the defense side you know. It was a huge impact. Lockheed Martin Raytheon Northrop Grumman when all stayed home you know there was people from the Russian companies here but it was really a skeleton crew The Chinese accompanies were of course banned from coming obviously. Didn't stop the August. I demonstration team which made a surprise appearance last week with their j ten fighters so Yeah but there was a huge impact on offense but thinking about. That's a attending major astro since I think mid-nineteenth or so and it's the first ever that onto where nas been stat not stop stood in a single life right station not have security not whatever whatever that is we could have been empty. So that's it could be for Saturday's coming of the organizers. Say A set that eight percent of exhibitors contras but it was mostly powder the tooth because the nice two percent that did that did show up showed up with a much smaller group of people search. So for instance Abbas there but they sent a few people that they would so so. It's been depressing way unusual night and in and this huge challenges ahead full for aviation as a whole but particularly aviation in the region given the impact this is going to have on on on uncommissioned airlines yeah region. I mean if you looked at some figures here Check some days of the week or so so Normally the Chinese airlines around to tweet sixteen to eighteen thousand twice a day They've deccan the operation between five and six thousand seven days in the past week. So that's about a third of their schedule. Financial initial impact huge Don't forget there's a lot of airlines. That are highly dependent on Chinese Traffic Korean. CARIOCAS areas the airlines in Thailand which kind of missing Derek Young Group of international travelers. And so we've seen the fallout of this. Yeah will be casualties. On the way in the next two months people tend to compare where this SARS in twenty two thousand three but I actually tend to disagree with the thing that a lot of sense just because China's become so much bigger than they operate. Seven hundred aircraft craft now is four thousand so much bigger share of the building chapter nor competitions and in recovery phase face will be will be

"That's just really we had a we had a source who used to work at former telltale <hes> who effectively told us that like yeah they're very well aware of the brand and the possibility of the brand new respectively just buying the brand which makes a lot of sense but to hear that from people who are close to it makes their air motivations pretty transparent yeah. Did we hear from anyone who is working for them in a freelance capacity. We do know that there were where former tell tale employees. I got picked up by new hotel as far as we've been told by our sources. It's only the people in support roles supporting q._a. And project management <hes> no creatives gives us as far as we know have signed on with you. Til til also a lot of the main key. Creative people left before telltale even shut down so it's been long gone. This is a sinking ship. Let's bounce out. The people people who've made like the first season that the walking dead have been gone for decades. A decade wasn't there a skeleton crew that telltale had after their announcements and stuff. I had to finish canals to work on <hes> minecraft net flicks. I forgot air still there. Is there any overlap ooh probably not <hes> <hes> don't call but yeah that was that was a year ago and it was misreported that the that dislike skeleton crew when telltale close the first time in two thousand eighteen which this is weird sentences but when they closed in two thousand eighteen there was this belief that the skeleton crew would stay behind to finish work on the walking dead final season which was only two episodes out well yeah at the time but turns out they had to fulfil obligations with netflix to complete minecraft story mode and afterwards presumably left isn't sky down also taking over to finish out the walking dead season was finished sky bounds. That's right but then a lot of the tokens were pulled from digital stores his close right so <hes>. Do we know if there's a even if they don't have these i._p. Anymore is there a possibility those games can resurface and be available again. Licenses is it probably have to be renegotiated would have to go through the original license holder so microsoft marvel would have to renegotiate with new telltale. If this company that was their whole plan was just make these those was already like critically lauded games available forever. That'd be like a really good plan and double and cool but they didn't say anything about <hes>. Yeah i mean they mentioned that. They talked a lot about that. Man on a lot about the wolf among us what about new games or continuing those games or something more than i mean the assumption is like w._b. Is helping fund their you know their re emergence. You think about this new emergence so probably focusing on wherever the money's gonna go well. It's an interesting developments. We will continue following new telltale as it xiaomi. No we await for classic telltale to classic it from the time we wake up to win. We go.

This just felt like something where maybe he was trying his hand at some different kind of science fiction aspect to his stories, and it just didn't land with me. I don't know if it's just because it felt so out of place and maybe somewhere else it would fit better. But to me, those aren't really the kinds of stories that he writes, you do have some fantasy elements in quite a few of his stories, you know, the dark tower series is driven with fantasy. And I don't know something about the John just stuck out like a sore.

But for me, you know, you get these motifs, I guess you could say throughout. But you never really get a overarching theme. I don't think. Yeah. Well, one that I remember thinking like this is a weird story include is the one that directly follows the myths, which is here there'd be Tigers. Which is this.

It was just one of those things where I was like. Okay. All right. This was the thing I read and not all of those good. But some of it was really really good. So ultimately, I gave it a three and a half out of five technically, I gave it three out of five uncle rates because you can't do have stars in his still drives me crazy. But I basically in the review section l just put like three point five and the star emoji about I know when I have wanted to write something a half star. So if they ever changed that I can then go back, and, you know, fix all of those that I want to put half stars in. But you know, it was it was fine. Overall for me. And I really liked the missed I think that was a choice putting that right up front for you. It's like here is what we are going to dive in with and then having the ballot of the flexible bullet towards the end there. I was like, okay, I can sort of gay. Into quite a few of these stories and that made it worth my time. Yeah, I agree. It's a it's a solid collection of jumbled stories. Think it's a better look at like these kind of stories from like some of the other ones he's done like four night, which is garbage garbage fire collection. But that's neither here nor there. Yeah. But I don't know how I'm going to feel about all of the short story collections necessarily because if I'm not mistaken, there are quite a few more to come for me it out the I've you, and I covered nightshift, and then I covered differences ins, and now this one and as far as I know, there's at least, you know, five to seven more, and it'll be interesting to see as I go, which ones sort of have this overarching theme, and which ones are sort of more a hodgepodge of stories like this one for from what I can recall there, mostly Hodge Matz, like nightmare. Nightmares and dreamscapes doesn't really have a. Thing. Like, there's there's a story in in that one of agai gang attacked by miniature toy soldiers. So well, that's interesting. Yeah. It's a thing. Fully. A thing. And I think that Stephen King does is that he just has like all these missile any aside and his head and the goes while I can't stretch that out into fulling novel. I could if I I would if I could he can't. Yeah. Yeah. It'll be at ours. Does see how those go then? But drew, thank you so much for coming on to talk about this one. You seem to be, you know, signing up for a few of the short story collections here. So, you know, we'll see what happens apparently, my groove TV shows are saris. Yeah. Well, again, thank you.

"It was almost like, you know, Henrietta couldn't save her own son. So she takes her grandson. I don't even really know what the thinking is behind this. What it it? Just amazed me I was like, wow. That is a lot to a lot to take in stealing so much. But because of the fact that it just ties in more than I would say most of the other stories due to stuff we have already known about for a while. Now it felt like a good one to talk about the last one. I really want to discuss though is the ballot of the flexible bullet because this one is very different from a lot of the other stories in this. And it felt so meta as far as the world of. Book-publishing goes and story publishing. So, you know, Stephen King is not afraid to get meta. He will clearly drop mentions of people reading his own books in other books of his that's something that has happened on numerous occasions, if I'm not mistaken, so this was sort of his way of giving I guess an op Ed on what is like to try and have a story published, but there's this twist to it. And there's this dark twist to it, which is obviously his specialty. Yeah. Well, it kinda it kinda reminded me of a conversation that you and me had on this podcast. I don't know cycle of the werewolf maybe where we were talking about how the publishing industry like that seeing king did for like a lot of his stories. Just simply does not exist anymore. You know, like the kind of literary magazine of like, I'm gonna put this this. This little story magazine and somebody will pay me X dollars for like that just does not exist anymore. It's very few and far between these days. There are still some out there. But I think a lot of them have gone the way of digital. So they put together like these digital collections quarterly or something like that. I haven't really looked too much into actual literary magazines. You know, every once in a while, you'll get like, a normal magazine that will publish short stories, you know, like G Q or something I think is one where either Stephen King himself or someone else. Has had short stories published. I don't know, but he would get his stories in some pretty odd magazines back in the day to you're like. Oh, okay. Penthouse. Really? Are. We sure they publish short stories. Yeah. Yeah. I appreciated the line in the story of if you gathered all of the editors in New York, you could kill them out with a single a single shotgun. Blast. Yeah. Which is both sad. Very accurate. I think yes, it is cruel, but not untrue. Yeah. But I liked this kind of look at the the quote, unquote, like tortured artist and the kind of the kind of commentaries trying to make like the the amount of artists like end up committing suicide by the end. Yeah. After they've established like some level of success was was the Jason Segel biopic. I have no idea. I'm sorry. It's come to me like out quoting. That's okay. Tommy about me in my life. But just these these talented people that like are so consumed with like their own DeRosa season their own like the dang that makes them so great the thing that makes them like makes people want to read them to take that like also put seven danger was at the end of the tour that you are thinking of. Yeah. Thank you. Yes. The David foster Wallace. They've otherwise, thank you. Now hate myself just. But now it it's it's an interesting look at like how at risk like that kind of person is. Yeah. And just like the kind of like slow descent into madness. Absolutely. Yeah..

"And I felt so bad for that kid so bad for that kid, and it remind it reminded me of pet cemetery a little bit because you know, Rachel is the only one who is home when Zelda dies. So there was that parallel there. And I was like, oh, you know, this kind of reminds me of that. And it helps that they add up tation just came out recently. So that's another thing I was sort of fresh on my mind there. But then you know, it's Henrietta Dodd who is the mother of Frank Dodd from all the rapes and the killings in the dead zone. Yet. It's it's weird. How like that is just so easily brush over in the story in the way that like finally family members would yes, especially because the boy who we are following throughout the story seems so young I believe us only like eight or nine or something like that. A something something I thought this this kind of reminded me, especially after seeing running me of hereditary. Yeah. I don't know if you saw that great movie. Yes. How this ends and like the kind of who Richie -ness of it and the possession. Yeah. It felt like a very serious precursor to that. Yeah. This one just seemed so wild. I was like, wow, you are putting this kid through the ringer here. And it's one of those things where I I don't know. I was just so absorbed into how it tied in to everything you know, because Henrietta Dodd and Frank Dodd both appear in the dead zone movie. And in the book, it's a little more subtle. I don't think it's quite as obvious as it is in the movie, but that was something that worked well in the movie that might not have worked quite as well in the book, and I don't know if Frank Dodd was ever actually named in the book, it's sort. Just one of those things where now everyone kind of knows that's who they were talking about the because of the mentions we've had throughout the years because Frank Dodd has been mentioned in a lot of things. Specially recently with like Castle Rock. Yeah. Where he gets. He gets more than one mention in that I believe I think so it's nice that this focused on Henrietta dot though, through the lens of her grandson because he doesn't really seem to know what had happened. He just goes off mentioning his mother's siblings. And that's that you know, it's not a huge focus to make this all about Frank Dodd. And it was one of those things where you could tell you know, there was just something. So sad about it too yet. And it's with sadden. It's also like quietly sinister and just in the way that like everyone has like that route that like elderly relative or like, I really don't know what to do at that person. Yeah. Or I'm I am very uneasy being around that Burgum. And it's definitely like the mode that he's inter. Throughout this entire story. And just the way like he convinces himself. Like, you would that like, no, it's fine. It's just an old person. It's fun. Don't worry about. Yeah. And you have all of this craziness going on, you know, he can't really get in touch with anyone. And when he does he is like, okay, that's a very strange interaction with my aunt there. She's just like yelling at him. Do this do that. And you know, this kid is just in such a panic because you know, he is like trying to figure out what to do with his grandma and she dies, and then he just sort of stuck waiting for someone to show up. Yeah. And then like the tear that she actually dead. Yeah. He just thinks she is. Yeah. And possessed him by the end of the story. Yeah. It was so uncomfortable. Like, wow. So many things going on in this. That are the dark ending by Stephen King centers dark ending where like the kid is dead. I guess. Yeah. His spirit said so weird..

"And everyone else is just allowed to be awful, just like jogging or the characters aren't really well served in typical like horror Matsuo, movie fashion. Yeah. That's not great. That's not. I don't think that's something. That's aged particularly. Well, it's the eighties. You know, some of these might have been done in the seventies. I'm not one hundred percent sure on the exact dates for when a lot of these stories were written. But it's one of those things where you know, something might not play off as well today. But you still can't just write it off necessarily. Because like, you know, this is one of those things where it's kind of tough to talk about like older works in twenty nineteen because like, you know, so much has changed since the eighties. I feel like so much has changed. Just even from like, the early two thousands like, okay, we gotta keep up with all the ways that things are changing and literature and entertainment in general, I guess even songs movies TV, they kind of serve as this time capsule. And you can just go back and be like, oh, so that's what things were like during this time. Especially a time period. That I was not yet born, you know, an early nineties kid, I don't know what things were like in the eighties. So to sort of get that perspective while I've been reading through a lot of these eighties. Stephen King works. It's like, okay. You know, you kinda get a sense for who. Stephen King was in the eighties. And you can obviously tell he's a progressive guy. You know, he's not stuck in the eighties. There are plenty of people who probably are. And you know, that's their thing. I sort of just liked being able to see how things have changed because I have read some more reasons. Stephen King stuff, I'm not going into this totally blind. You know, I had read a handful of things before diving into this, and they were kind of scattered all over the place. I had read the shining. I had read the girl who loved Tom, Gordon, sell, you know, so very different time periods for some of those things. So I at least had a. Sense of what I was getting myself into basically, and you know, that was kind of nice to have that going into this. I wasn't just totally starting from the beginning. And being like, yeah, let's jump in with. Carey. Yeah. No king is allowed himself to evolve time over the decades. And that's good. Yeah. I definitely well. Let's move on to known a-, which is a very Bonnie and CLYDE type story based on the perspective that it's told from and I found that to be pretty interesting. I don't know if it's because I happen to have just recently watched the highway men on Netflix ex, you know, Bonnie and CLYDE were already kind of recently on the mind here, but it was sort of just a fun story. Even though this guy was so tortured throughout it. You know, you hell you're just going alongside this tortured character, and he has this obsession with this girl. He hardly knows. And I don't know what about it really made it stand out to me. But I was like, you know, what this one kind of stuck in my head here. And I don't really know why. And I. Sometimes that's another great thing about reading things. Sometimes you just get your enjoyment out of something, and you don't necessarily need to know, why just that enjoyment is enough. And like, I said, this isn't like a happy ending story. I'm not really sure what Stephen King story is. You know, there is that. But it was sort of just, you know, brutal quick. And to the point. It's kind of like weird look at socio athle-. We're like there are a lot of lines drag on he got my way. If you hadn't been my ways when happened just like this kind of like mild seco- going throughout it. We're like I'm not Tyler sure that known existed by the time. I got to the end of it. You know, or the girl is in this story. I should say where it's kind of has has you like wondering like getting into a mindset of like, Stephen King stories. We're like autumn trades says the girl didn't exist. Yeah. I was thinking the whole time the guys just nuts..

"Because I have only watched the TV show, which was not good. I won't go into details here on why that is because I will be doing an episode on it budge later down the line, thankfully, and I just didn't get how that patient came out of the story after reading this story because in this. The depiction of the creatures that are going around. You know, you have the tentacles flying in through the roll up door and trying to just grab onto anything. It can grab onto and you have, you know, this vivid imagery in your head based on the descriptions given in this novella, and it was so much better. That's who the soli way. I could put it. It was just so much better than what my thoughts were when watching the show. I was like, okay. There's the mist. And I don't know. You know, I don't know how I feel about this. But with the story, I knew exactly how I felt about it. And you have this sort of bad feeling in your gut the entire time, you're reading it. You're like you are really going to go outside, really? I would not do that. And then they go outside that you just crushed over and over again with this story because of the decisions that the character's make and just what happens to the town in general because of this that there's a kind of like wonderful simplicity with the missed where you're just putting like a bunch of people in one like cramped place together and put an turn that into a pressure cooker. And then see what happens like, it's kind of like weird bottle episode of a short novella or just man novella like really examines like kind of like the social logical stressed that people would be under under that time, and like the religious ramifications that like people would feel. Yeah, you have a wide variety of characters in this too. Which makes it even more interesting. I think and you. You just get quite a bit of character work from Stephen King and such a short amount of time, given everything that's going on. You know, you really get a sense for how preachy he no asserting character is and the son who is just terrified wants his mom, but at the same time, I think deep down he knows that just not something that's going to happen. You know, Billy seems to be the youngest one in there from what I can tell. That's right. Yeah. And there's a there's a huge like for boating element. Like that is run throughout the entire thing of like, they are never going to see like that woman. Again, you know, like that is that is something like he's never gonna see his wife again, the boys never gonna see his mother again. Like, that's just not something that's going to happen. And so there's like this huge level of dread. The just run through the entire thing. Yeah. There's so much dread. In this one. It is truly amazing. How? Well, Stephen King can just have that dread. Jump off of the page is just like right into you. You're just like, oh, I'm feeling everything that these characters are feeling right now. One. The interesting thing about the missed is it's one of those kings stories where the the thing you have to look out for aren't like the scary things that go bump in the night. It's like the people I it's it's doing this thing that like the Walking Dead.

"Yes. Film in my mind. I enjoyed that so much that when. I turned it off. I was smiling. And I go is this recommend don't do. It. Don't do it. And it's good thing that I watched the movie twice as what I watched it again after reading the book, a I could see so clearly where the book fell apart on its translation to the screen and be the first hour is so arduous to get to the little joy Montanier brings it's a week not recommend. It's not an abort film. You can watch a lot worse. We have watched a lot worse. Most of the Stephen King riches is much worse. Yes. It is better than I think ten eleventh of the corn films. But it is still going to be a red arrow as red as the splotch on tattoos knows as for the fourth reviewer. I always try to bring Stephen king's view into it. When I can he did rewrite the script he did appear in it. So he loved it you'd think so, but he said that somewhere between. Lean the cut he saw April with your lending and the cut that hit theaters in October. He said he doesn't know who the editors were at wasn't Holland wasn't anyone with narrative sense. But they turned the movie into a dog, and he was really upset about what they done because he'd seen better Lear cuts of the film. I can't imagine with these performances. They were that much better. Because my biggest problem with this is tone and acting maybe just had more screen time. But he said there was a good cut once. And now he also would give it a not recommend. So that's four red arrows. We're back at least we're back with king. And in a few months, we're not gonna do it next week. We will be getting skeleton crew, which is there have been to movie adaptations of those short stories the missed I think everyone knows that one and mercy which I don't think anyone knows about. But it's real it's really a movie based on grandma, even I haven't heard of it. And I'm the. Stephen King fanatic, and I had no idea. Oh, mercy. Not misery. Yes. I know took me suck. And they're. The oscar. Yeah, not that. I'm like, what are you talking about? No, nobody getting hits in the bed. No, this is something to do with. What you I look forward to it. Skeleton crew man that was all over my junior high. I couldn't look anywhere without seeing that creepy monkey but mostly I'm really excited aren't a you in the next couple of weeks. We'll be able to clear your schedule and start putting out on a more regular basis. Steven king book review. That is correct. I am actively immersing myself in the old ones. Revisiting what I wrote so many years ago, and I'm going to be starting off with some short stories. There was a new edition of night shift that was published and it had to never before collected Stephen King short stories in it one of which was weeds from Creepshow. So I will be adding those two to my nightshift review and then getting. Fire starter and beyond. I'm looking forward to what I have several of those already written. Of course, the lead story will be going to theaters as well, this eight role, sometimes remake, sir better. Or at least. We hope so pet cemeteries come in back, and we'll be doing that as we won't be doing it. The weakened released because it's the same week issues.

This is from Brendon Sinclair over on games industry is yesterday telltale narrative designer, Rachel. Noel tweeted about telltale in the skeleton crew layoffs. This broke during kind of funny games daily. Jared, Steve brought it up. Her tweet made it sound like the entire skeleton crew of twenty five people had been eliminated. She followed up with tweets and Brennan over a games. Industry up is putting together. Quote, I think there was some understanding about my earlier message. She wrote there are still good people at at the company. My team is done when asked if the remaining staff were what the remaining staff we're working on. Noel said she was unsure, but she was also asked how many telltale boys are left, but only responded not many, so it seems there are still a skeleton crew working over there. They are slowly being loud down. I wonder what I wonder. Who is left is thing? Yeah, it's like Meghan for up mission of over. Devoting service just public something yesterday, I believe that was just a series of anonymous interviews with a bunch of telltale people who were laid off, man paint such brutal picture that it sounds like they just pull everyone into a room. The CO sat down and literally said, I need to sit down for this one and just basically laid off almost everyone and they had the Hoffa now and to get out of the building. I can't imagine how the people who was still there would've felt off to that anyway. It just being one of the loss remaining survivors almost seems just as hot, like awful for those people and then come into this ghost town. We're all your friends were right or not. Yeah. And then to have another team laid off again, so how many people eleven? How those people feeling it just it's just awful for everyone in this situation. I'm wondering if she was narrative designer, does that mean that she was still working on the Walking Dead up until. Figure the skeleton crew supposed to do the Minecraft. They just finished the narrative bullet points or the story for what do that with twenty five people to begin with? Just don't understand. Yeah, it seems like every headline related to this thing just gets more and more like what is going on. How do you feel about? I know you're huge fan of the walking to finish it. Oh, that that line of it. I'm I very much into the camp of. I don't care.

When I talked with him today. She presented us not for charity. I'm speak on that right now because you're gonna love it you're gonna love period. And I listen is gonna love it. Because what we do is for the veterans, and this is for them. It's just a communication tool to connect people. That's all it is will there's even a bigger connection are than this is not any network in particular. But our major networks cover the Olympics. They leave skeleton crew, and they have led to skeleton crew all the way up. I'd I'm not. They did it and create wealth was in Rio. And I saw what was left after the Olympics were gone and the Paralympics began. And I me I'm my business. I went independently because I had no outlet, no magazine outlet or organizational outlet to associate myself with but the US OC media gives me break credential rights up to four two four credentials, and that includes broadcasting and far casting press and quoted journalism, and I just looked at the most said, hey, how'd you like to go to Tokyo, and he'll cock cover the military athletes because it's going to be twenty to thirty percent of all team USA is going to be military athletes, and that is our future and pets. Right there. And if it's none our future emphasis their stories still needs to be told because they served media presence is not there to show it on TV or show it on ESPN eight the Ocho at two o'clock in the morning. You know, it it actually was on Olympic on the Olympic channel. But due to the timeframe they never did prime time. And unless this are one national affiliate really or into it for Tokyo. They're still not getting the coverage that they deserve. Do not getting the coverage that they deserve and their stories deserve to be told true fact is that three runners it doesn't matter which which country they were from all military, three runners, all w lamps. Teas. Out scored and broke the Olympic records of the Olympia in those same events that happen the month prior to the peril. And they were paralympian not Olympia and they were in track there faster than their Olympic counterparts. Not because of the prosthetics because they tried harder because they tried hard because of their milit- military background. They had more hearty. I can't say that being an athlete because I've seen both sides. I've seen this both come together. I've seen this eat together in the same galleys. And I've been I've been a on and off residential athlete at Olympic centers working right alongside those Olympic hopefuls. Or those other Olympia said they knew that they were training there to go to the next games. So it's. We as athletes all understand where one team USA. And I believe it was president actually President Clinton that kind of started though, one one team when uniform idea, but it was President Bush that in his announcements addressed dress called the Libyan's. There was no difference. We were all one team one team you say that he was proud of. And the these other stories are. Just as compelling. I wanted him seem more compelling. But again, I'm not I can't I cannot neck our counterparts. However. Nope. London. The Paralympics outsold the Olympics. So turtle Vicks. So the Olympics in Rio with all the problems the Paralympics, even though they're funding got cut by almost sixty percent that was supposedly given to the Olympics because funding was being cut and all those services a lot of services were cut back.
