"Though who has presence and i think that's something that's kind of missing lake with the harry palmer films. The previous ones like i always liked. How you'd have. Colonel stock would come back or ross or dobie only gets the one movie. But he's very memorable like they are very fun personalities to watch harry palmer bump up against and i feel like burke clock actually brings that like he actually hasn't sort of personality even if the character is not really there on paper. It's pretty stereotypical. I wanted more of that because a lot of the characters regardless of the talent of the people you know portraying these characters you know you look like you know jason connery as nick or mia. Sara natasha like i have nothing against these two actors. I've seen both be fine and other things but they are not good in this movie like they're playing a very one note. Kind of forgettable characters like mia sara's character is a real like she barely talks but she's she's given nothing she's given hardly anything just say. I think that's one of the challenges that it's as it reflects the fact that this movie that either it was produced either breakneck speed or the buddy didn't stretch too Allowing more time to develop the characters or all these sort of things so the it it has a sort of certain pound shop quality to it. We're on me sr. So i'll just jump on this bit. Whilst i have a chance. But did they have to write a scene where she's about to have sex with michael. Cain i will point out. The michael caine was sixty at the point of filming. This film and mia was late as early phase. Ah to be fair. It is incredibly uncomfortable intentionally. Nails that is the other thing that's filmed at nails is out to do like. That's not right and then you know let's just beat around the bush to me. This feels like a. Let's make out like jason connery. Is harry palmists son. Now let's try and build the world for him to take over with his own films. I guess although it kind of feels like you know you reference the indiana jones and the kingdom of the crystal skull where it's like. Here's mutt williams guys. Can't you wait to see a lake his movies and it's like we're good like the idea of jason connery. Spinoffs was not something that really ever crossed my mind watching these to be fair but the idea of that is brutal. Scott i i fear for the nightmare. You're living in thinking. You might have to watch jason connery films. I hate. We've got another film him in in just a few minutes and the other problem. I have this film so of a nitpicky level. Is michael gamblin's accent. Oh okay off. You can Babbitt accents yeah. I am he. He is dropping in and out of a british accent every sentence. I'm waiting to tell me the harry potter a wizard and then an just take way back into something. About a clue tonia ari ari poverty. Yes.

"It's in the extended version of the movie. Which i didn't get to see so the movie itself it was boy it was baffling in terms of plotting. I mean there. Are you know as rob alluded. So many double and triple crosses that it was like just head-spinning at a certain point trying to make sense of what was going on I feel like it's the type of movie you wanna whiteboard. When you're watching it just to keep track of all the players and the little red violets being you know it harry's carrying throat what that means and why it's there and who put it there and etc etc so in terms of like a spy plot not great especially when you compare it to the really well honed convoluted you could say story of saint funeral in berlin which is definitely confusing. But i feel like it does. Pay off all make sense. Psychologically within the The world of all these players whereas this one it just felt like doing a lot of those crosses for no reason and with characters who i didn't really even understand who they were like the cia guy. And i also knows this movie had a lot of What i would call cannon films action which cannon films made a lot of kind of be action movies through the eighties and this will be had a ton of those moments where would just cut to a really kind of cheesy shootout where like a character falls onto an electrical wire stuff. Like that sort of thing you'd see in like the death wish sequels but overall like it was not good but i found it somewhat watchable if that makes sense. It's not something. I would recommend anyone really unless you're really into the world of harry palmer but i did find it kind of interesting. I agree you can. You can spend a reasonable ninety minutes with cup of tea into an a snack and just you know it perfectly as you say is watchable what you divide is it. Apart from perhaps harry palmer given that he is played by mccain. You even in. The bad movie is pretty good very few of the characters actually really either understand or care for but it does have some say some sort of strange almost like funny unintentionally elements like you can tell. Basically they had to use for somebody who said we haven't abandoned airport nearby and let's use it because at one point Colonel gretzky used a sort of a pound store version of colonel stock. Says wait a minute. I know somebody in bryansk. And that's they switched to this airfield where they sort of opposite of chasing after this train. And it's it's this bizarre and it has nothing it doesn't really about the plot anyway but it's just like i'm sure it's because they had the use of an airfield for a couple of days you know. I figured it was either that or because they want to work in north by northwest omar. Because you have them on the train and then they get out and they get swooped by a plane. I was like. Oh okay well we got a little bit hitchcock to give the actors that jews. I would not want to be up in the sort of rusty russian bucket that they filmed in..

"Lightly. They certainly save money there and they save money on the acting as well. Take that back about jason culinary. How they well. I mean is there anything else background. Wise socially No let loose on. Okay well get quick five Thoughts on the film as a whole. Rub your guest. You kind of saw telegraph already but but to beijing. What are your thoughts. Yeah it's as. I said up from. It's not a great movie but you know it's sort of watchable. I didn't when i sat watching a couple of evenings go. I didn't tell my hair out has some interesting elements to it has Michael cord number of sort of english character. Actors michael gambon. Alexey does a possible russian. Jason coterie is not a great actor and he's trying to be nice well trying to be nice. Whoa let's let's be. Frank is wooden as a cyborg in this movie but it has the added attraction of the rather attractive mia sara ferris buehler's girlfriend playing the road natasha and even though he's not on the dvd. I got there is a fleeting appearance by sue. Lloyd the actor who plays gene in the original hip chris far so there are some sort of harry potter fans. There are some interesting little sort of law dates back to the original three movies. This is sort of suggestion. That a jason connery's character. Nikolai is possibly harry. Palmer said of the illegitimate son as say. There's the parents from gene. His love chris fall. So you know and the parties you know half chase movie half sit of heist movie this double-crossing triple crossing the drugs involved. The chinese and north koreans. It's like somebody's taking all the sort of ingredients from my. I spy movie cookbook. Throwing them into a pulp got to add some seasoning. That sort of thing. It's this the elements of there but it doesn't really hang together while rob really put the bullet in beijing cam. What about you okay. So this was one that i kind of dreaded going into because it's like how good is this going to be. When compared against a lot of the film craft that was happening on the first three. But it was a movie that i actually found in some ways a little bit entertaining in terms of reintroducing harry palmer into the nineties because like what is that like and where. This character is at being forced into retirement. We see that he's still got kind of that lady's man kind of vibe. We saw in the chris file. You know he's talking to his Girlfriend su Who's played by. Sue lloyd in the original on the phone which is kind of fun. There's a cut scene that rob alluded to it was not in my version. But i'm gonna have to.

"A lot in the movie credits and titles. It's portrayed as len dayton's harry palmer ever asked his overland directly. I'm pretty sure he didn't have a huge to do other than probably writing his signature on a contract and say yeah go ahead. He has had some generally in the past and quite challenging experiences with tb produces so. I didn't think he guy so. I'm sure it's it's definitely not something that i don't think len had a creative into indian creative input into which shows. Yeah the only thing i could find was that he said basically if they get michael caine back he put his name on it. Yeah i think that's without without michael. Cain the movie has nothing a to with harry mccain has something in these and that's not saying much so we're getting a clue to listeners that bullet to beijing And sister filming leads. Berg not shining examples of the spy. Maybe he's on. What are you talking about the best tv movies we've covered so yes my view. Yeah i watched them both over the last Three or four days just to refresh myself. I've watched him a few times. No many they are great for me. The word that came to my mind is that you have curiosity value. One is seeing michael. Cain or harry palmer if you will It is sort of down. He'll dress not in sort of a shop sixties Suit walking down soho. But in sort of anorak walking down some groti street in some petersburg so this is sort of interesting sort of angle about seeing a familiar character. In ritu circumstances plus there is also the sort of again a curiosity value in just seeing the fact that they were filming in russia fairly soon after the fall of communism. Isn't it so interesting. The fact that the product that came out with is not that great is by the by so seeing you know what russia was like in nineteen ninety five and it looks pretty grubby and down at hill. Place has somebody but yeah if you were expecting Looks of action and lots of plot twists and great acting. This isn't your maybe. And that's been i am curious. I'm curious if you have any idea because there are you know. Annette adapted len deighton. Harry palmer spy novels like horse underwater. Or whatever like do you have any idea or like what the thinking was behind. Why these two movies bullet to beijing and the one. We're gonna talk about a few minutes. Were entirely original stories. I don't have any particular insight on there. My suspicion is that as with a law things in the movie business. It was probably money opportunity involved. Somebody saw opportunity with. I imagined that feeling in russia in nineteen ninety five is pretty cheap. I mentioned that there was probably a gap in harry. Michael caine schedule There was probably. Mr towers was at a loose end and you know the fates combined to bring them together in petersburg to film these two movies. I suspect there was no more sort of strategic thinking that makes sense from a financial standpoint. I imagine the amount you have to pay at linda in four making the quiz file goal horse. Underwater is far more than the original script lightly touching on.

Russia arrests 2,700 during wide protests backing Navalny
"And police who are out in force, Russians have taken to the streets for a second weekend of protests. They're calling for the release of jailed opposition leader Alexi Navalny. One human rights monitoring group says at least 2000 protesters have already been arrested. Of only was jailed two weeks ago after returning from Germany, where he had been receiving treatment after being poisoned with a chemical weapon. MPR's Moscow correspondent Lucian Kim was at the protest in Russia's capital and he joins us now. Good morning. Morning, Lulu. Demonstrators early today gathered outside the prison where Navalny is being held. There were plans to protest outside the headquarters of the State Security Agency, the F S, B and Moscow. What can you tell us? Well, not a lot happened outside the FSB. The city authorities closed off metro stations in the center of the city and didn't let any pedestrians into the area. Navalny's team was hoping for a symbolic protest. Since they accused the FSB of trying to poison him. And when it became clear the downtown area was off limits. One of Navalny's AIDS who's outside the country started tweeting the locations of other rallying points around the city, including the prison where he's now being held. I mean, despite the certainty of arrests and crackdowns at today's protest, people still poured into the streets. I mean, there were extraordinary scenes. What if people tell you? Well, I've covered a lot of protests in Moscow and I have to say this one was the scariest I've been to riot Police were everywhere, and I saw how they just pluck someone off the street on arrest him and put him in a police truck. Probably the most famous demonstrator arrested today was Navalny's wife, Yulia. I met one protester. Her name is Alina McCarley Amara. She's an architect. And she told me she was scared, but that she had no choice but to come out. In the Russia the government is suppressing anyone who has a new opinion difference from a very narrow point of view. The propaganda makes you feel alone. That's why we came here to show that we are not alone that there are many of us. She said she actually doesn't not does not support Alexey Navalny as a politician, but she respects him for representing people who don't agree with Vladimir Putin and I heard that same opinion from other protesters. I spoke to You know, Um, these protests have been notable for their spread across a very vast country. We saw that last week. Do we know yet what's been happening outside of Moscow? What we do. We're getting reports from around Russia. It's already Sunday night on Russia's Pacific Coast activists are reporting hundreds of arrests. As you mentioned there'd been clashes with police a lot of really rough detentions and reports of police using Tasers. This is hugely significant because of protest has truly become nationwide. In the past, rallies were often focused on Moscow and ST Petersburg. That's two Navalny's credit. He always saw himself as a national politician. He spent a lot of time traveling around Russia and building a support network there. And in fact, he was traveling in Siberia when he was poisoned. Well, let me ask you this. I mean, if that is the case in these protests are igniting across the country. Does Vladimir Putin see them as a real threat? What little we see how the government is responding right now, with a really heavy hand, not Brooking any dissent? What's a different from earlier protests is that they've basically put all of Navalny's AIDS in jail. And they're also going after Russian journalists who are trying to cover these protests. The Kremlin likes to say that these protests are small and that the majority is for Putin. But when you consider that the literally shut down central Moscow to today and filled it with police You kind of get the impression that Vladimir Putin is feeling a little nervous. That's NPR's

"Maybe a month ago I think. And I want you to try it before we talked about it but this is going to be our tipplers reserve that you can buy right here at the store only here. All right hold on. Here we go. This is a little bit. Darker than the orange liqueur than the tippers. Armscor. What is the secret? Is it wait a minute? That is delicious. There's just something. it's almost like a burnt sugar. Taste in there like a roasted taste what is okay Warren tell me what I just had. Will reduce with this process here as we aged Are tipplers in expert in barrels by itself, and then what we did was we blended it in with some of our. The Bourbon barrel the would tank. Isn't necessarily what you will you. there. So we also took that and we did a small blend with straight Bourbon So we decided to give a sneak peek of Bourbon that we have here Asian currently you know. So this is it. That is delicious. What's it called again? now is are tipplers reserved. Deserve. One thing with this land is splendid perfectly on get the taste of the as Orange Cure, but you get the aroma of a straight bourbon. It is wonderful. This was really delicious I enjoyed every drink here and. I enjoyed my tour. Only did have the sunset Julia head. That's now this is new is this out yet? full-scale distribution November December this year. All right sunset Jen let's say. Wow. That's good. That's really unusual. We also there's no artificial flavoring or coloring in there, and I think what Clara did is she she and it's a beautiful gold color and there's no artificial colors. You can tell you know here it's a little bit of a lighter Hue, but in fifty it is. kind of an amber orange color so It's really beautiful in a bottle. And you know to know that it's completely natural. You might see a little bit of orange particles in some of them to if you're if you're lucky. So yeah, I think that's a it's a good way to put it. It's unusual because it's not a normal Jenn it's completely different Very any JIM that you would find on the market. Very complex and I think that you could put that in a cocktail and you it would hold it how it's not gonNA get buried.

"Position that the ownership of found me and and interviewed me floor ownership of Saint Petersburg distillery. Saint Petersburg wonderful Italian family, I Friday's father and Tucson's onto signs are basically the managing partners and the the father's overseeing. We'll tell them give people a little bit of an idea like I'm standing in a big. Block. Cement Block building used to be a lumber yard. And it's got maybe. Ten or fifteen large tanks, artillery tanks holding tanks I mean this is considered kind of a craft distillery although it's a very large, it's large on the size of a craft distillery, but it's not a huge commercial. Gallo it's not like that. Make it back to the question that you asked previously, why am I here in? What's what's in it for me for this project? This is one of the only commercial distilleries in the state of Florida's actually making their own products. There's nobody doing on production level that we are your bottling it everything we're we're bottling it. So everything from like the Orange is actually get here in a truck right and then Warren you know picks out what project these orders are going to be four. To the point where Claire is actually using an orange peeler and putting them herself into the dehydrated and actually using those pills so that she can keep some of the oil's not just by dehydrated oranges. But that is why I'm here because this is a distillery that we can actually have a concept like a sunset Jen, NC it out and six months later, be selling it on market can't do that anywhere else indefinite can't do it working for a global entity right there'd be way too much red tape and too many people to to get on the program here I went from having ten thousand shareholders to having three shareholders that called me three times a day each. And I'M SUPER HAPPY TO BE HERE Let's try that I mean I'm looking at this beautiful trae over here with a couple of mixed drinks and a bottle of that is that the sunset jen? So we have the skyway drive over there and that was named because pat it's a pink cocktail and it kind of reminds me of my drive over the skyway every morning into Saint Pete because I work I live. In Sarasota. So I drive over the sky we every morning and the sun is rising on the way there. So. It kind of has that same hugh. What's in it? So we have our banning vodka tipplers, of course, simple syrup, grapefruit, juice, lime juice, and it's talked with club. Soda. Yup. We're GONNA have these recipes on the website possess podcasts, dot com. Yup, and what's the drink? The other one is shining sunset gin. So actually a first cocktail ever four like this featuring sunset gin. And we're calling it a robbins. Collins. Because it's kind of a twist on A. Tom. Collins in Robinson my last name. So it has a sunset gin lemon juice simple syrup and club. Soda. All. Right. Try It. Okay. So this is the skyway drive. It's this is the pink one. Yeah, and You've got a little lime garnish on it. This had the typically. The band Monica and the tippers. Orange liqueur. Okay. Wow. To orange really comes through. I would have some of that comes through it isn't even grapefruit juice. Oh, grapefruit juice does. Make some great food choose yet but you know grapefruit is another another nice citrus so That would complement the tipplers a little bit. But of course, we always Bainian Vodkas easy of London anything we use it in most of our cocktails especially with tipplers tipplers is just a great spirit to be able to blend with any other spirit so We kinda reminds you of a screwdriver, but with a twist like a little more complex. Yeah. Because you know it's means grapefruit juice. And there's vodka, and of course, there's tipplers orange. So those are all things that you you know of course. A. Screwdriver would be made with orange juice instead but. That great for juice along with that tipplers kind of mimics out. But still a little bit of a little bit of bubbles. I'm all about blood bubbles. I put you know Code Soda just about every drink that I make. You know it's kind of a fun. Twist on that but. I really enjoyed and I think it's. It's a pretty drake. Also I mean, it's got a little bit of lime. So it really has every you know aspect of that world because you have three different types of citrus in that at once. So it's Very, special to Florida, and that's why you know it's got skyway name. So also another you know mosh to Saint Petersburg. Okay now, this one sent the Tom Collins. With which of living to garnish. Right it's supposed to be a an orange wedge but. Today we have lemon limits. You just got to roll with the punches off. This one's called the Robin Scotland. Yeah okay. It is good. It's really good. So tell me what was in that. Sense it Gin Lemon Juice Simple Syrup in club soda. So simple. Simple to make. These these both what I really like about them they're not too sweet. They're not super dry. They're not as dry as a gin and tonic, but they're not they're not simpler sweet either yeah. In general you'll see that you know the sense that Janice it's sweet but it's not super sweet and so that's really the only sweetness that you get from. That is in a little bit of that simpler that there's not much in there. But I you know really liked to focus on the spirit and not so much. Everything that goes into it. When I make cocktails, they're usually really simple. I am to GIN and Tonic Person I. That is what I drink anywhere. So I am very simple with that but you know I'm not gonNA. If I'M GONNA make a cocktail for some special event. Then I wanted to be a little bit more complex but still simple enough to meet my standards of you know shining that spirit. So I did not want to make a gin and tonic that I wanted to make something simple. Okay. So you put something in this Cup this is the tipplers orange core just to. Drink which was great but I want you to taste it naked so that you could actually see some of those illness you're picking up the drink I think it will go ahead and close that loop for your once you try it. I love that. So. That is really Warren said it was one of the first things that we did and he told you about the trials and tribulations of the oranges So this product in particular I, think with covert a lot of people are making Margaritas back home now So this product for us is up about five percent year to date. Which is already on a pretty big base. So we're actually buying more oranges making more tipplers because of it and we. freaking good. This is good. I love this I would. I would put maybe this over some ice absolutely then what I wanted to tell you about a little bit and warrants stepped out for a second. We. Have kind of an exclusive for you I guess but it's going to be when we open our new market store. So we're actually revamping our distillery experience and we're GONNA have a market store right now we're not open for the public common have the distillery tour and have the market store experience. We're going to be in that position in December and so what I asked the guys to do is I wanted to release a couple of interesting products. For that distillery experience that you could only get here. Right. So a bit of a draw here but also at stuff that warrants kind of been playing with he brought this to me..

"It meant up to us a lot of a lot of our products we have that we come out with has a story and has some kind of history which is real. You know and. That's why we take a lot of these products to heart. You know everything has some matched up from the taste of smelled location story the message you know it just has to be a real. Yeah. So that's obviously important to you that. Not, only that the lacouer taste good but you're capturing something about the Florida spirit. And You're doing that as well in the laboratory. Tell me tell me about that. Yes. So we're getting ready to release our sunset gin and that's going to have the same vibe as tipplers. We wanted it to be something that was Mary between tipplers and our tropical gin. So of course, it's not the same base, not the same recipe as Tropical Jin but still have that same spirit and that same vibe to be a Florida Jin. That is specific to Florida in stands out on a shelf at a bar that this is something that you can only get here. It's the only completely naturally made. Orange Style Jin that is on the market in it's something that we're really proud of it took a lot of trials and a lot of. Hard work kind of. I. Don't WanNa say similar to what learn with speaking to you about the. Just. Florida. Orange Crops, but it felt that way in the moment trials. So I mean you know trying out different styles in. Different methods to make this was. Trying bite eventually got to this wonderful spirit that is a it's an orange hue. It's very strong, orange, Palette, but also a balance of a gin. So it's kind of that in-between of orange spirits and JEN. Spirit I said Clara, is there a way for us to create an Orange Jin on that? We're now calling sunset JEN. And have it. Be. Not, only hit all the quality cues but I don't want to add any flavors like if we're GONNA get flavor, it needs to come from. That you're using if we're going to get color I wanted to come either from the orange peels or one of the other batanes you're using. And she figured out a way to do that and she got with Warren and Warren figured out a way to get that patched up. So we can do it into a large scale, and now we're super excited. We're going to have this product market in late October. To tastes this do you have this here? Samples for your tastes. Then also I've been clear prepared to maybe even make a drink out of it. Say can habit raw and you can have it in a drink. That sounds good. Yeah. Both of those. Really good. But let me clarify you know what goes on in the lab. How did that process work when you were given that challenge? What did you do? Yeah. So so the actual Jin I created a London dry style gin. So it's very simple has six botanical and. It's Juniper Coriander Angelica, root root licorice root in Green cardamom. So it's very simple lesson, dry style recipe kind of a classic. Yeah. But I wanted it to be simple something that would blend with oranges really well, and I knew that having London dry style blend with oranges I thought it would just really work together. So I tried you know figuring out how to. Combine this and make this orange standout but not overpower in this recipe and eventually landed on a post distillation infusion method, and so I am. Appealing all the oranges myself, I'm drying them all and. He's drawing the peel. Yeah. Having them in a dehydrate her in the lab and. That's where it's all going down in the lab. All of the oranges are being processed in there and then infused with that raw. London Dry Style Jen later on Warren. I love the way you were talking about the orange growers in Florida history and I'm wondering are you a Florida native? What? Why is that? Why come here to Saint?

Today, we might be talking about a couple of our of our orange generated brands like our or sunset Jin. We would not be able to make those up north without bringing in the Florida oranges right So we're we're very happy that we are not only commercial distillery making all of our products here, but we use as many local ingredients from the local farmers that we possibly can to keep it a Florida crap product. And you were saying it's a little bit unusual because. You make these. Spirits start to finish. It's all done start to finish worn. So.

New members of the ATP Played Council. That is. That's you know if that were if that were a government that would be huge kind of. Right wing left wing shift wouldn't it? That's a massive kind of aggregate change in outlook. I would suggest I mean who? Who knows in practice what it will mean, but those are very differently minded. kind of plays I would say than the composition composition has been light, well the players. Withdrew were not on Jock, Itch Vasic Pospisil Sam Query Jonas ner plan like that I. Absolutely. Agree I think Andy. Murray. When when asked to elaborate said he was only there temporarily while they sorted out who else they wanted on that board that council but. It's it is a very interesting time. The fact that there is this alternative body that is trying to set up as the players presentative when the PLA- council still has a group they're very much trying to do that job and how ends up coming out I mean if if they get to the Australian Open and half an Australian Open amidst everything that's on at the moment, those Playa meetings, you could be very interesting and in fact, the next the next year particularly I think because can these plays bring about something to inspire some further confidence in the players that have wavered over the last however long and ended up standing on that code for that photo shoot. When it was when they're in the bubble in New York that the players had time to talk and mobilize and things started happening in the next opportunity for that. As you say, we'll be if there is an Australian Open in January that probably going to have. What could be six weeks? You know in terms of that strength in terms of how long would together another spread out across the country for ATP Cup. But yeah, you could imagine that the next stage this political talk in development will will happen at the start of the year. Yeah. It's going to be very interesting lost bit of news announced. This week is the absolutely game changing fact that the French Open again, have night sessions next year imagine how different that will bake. Can make. Can you get your heads around it? The only the only pet that even the fact that we ended up playing tennis until I wait. They play tennis until one twenty, five in the morning. The one night. Even. The one thing that strikes me as jarring about this announcement is the fact that they're going to play a single match on court Philippe Chatrier from nine M. Every single night of the first ten days. Nine PM is the start of the night session I mean. I suppose you could say look if you have a four hour match yet you want I am every every every night but I mean that's a really late start time and I'm just really interested to see how that works with the locals whether whether they really go for that or not. 'cause it's a very residential area. I do my anxiety about it and there's no well. Minority about is given that it's just one much distribution of equal distribution of men's and women's matches. Really, hope that will be a consideration I. mean if there's GonNa be unequally distribution, you can make a very strong argument that it would make more sense for it to be more women's march is because of. The. Length of much is. Linked of best to five matches after nine PM start. But that remains to be seen but officially sessions at the French Open from twenty.

Everything, at an Mo, you mentioned they won the doubles title at Cologne One. But at there was doing double duty, he was also playing the singles qualifying for Cologne to the same weekend. Geographically Very. Time someone's played to tournaments on the same day I. Felt like as I. said that maybe there's a story about Sanga, Sanga Surbiton and Queen Yeah qualifying. Didn't he win Surbiton? Surbiton and he got the train up. The Chiba over to play play Queens qualifying my first of Queenstown to did qualify any went in a few runs as well. Beat Lleyton Hewitt in. But just on this. Double header tournament I mean I have sat and they did an extremely good job of putting it together that sort of notice and the the organizer is somebody the I worked with for many years on the champions tour. Before you become working, we'd be Catherine in the participated in a celebrity football match with him. He was part of the Organization of that particular. Yes he was Edwin Wind door. He was who is the director of the senior tour back in the late nineties and early two thousands and he has this company which he he runs a think in partnership with his dominant teams agent. Heroic Struck. and. Both Australians and yeah, they put on the events I think they put on the the grass court tournament in. Stood Guard as well. And and yeah they they put together this this tournament to really short notice By the. Enough to have gone and I mean okay. Some of it was weird. Pretend. It wasn't but I also think the fact that they started with fans and halfway through the that week the Cologne just got shut down and they told you can't have any funds anymore and they kept going and. They made it work say you know an almost credit to them for that? Do you remember when we had Simon on quite early on in the pandemic, and we were doing sort of generalized speculation about the the lasting effects on on the sport. Of this year might be and he? One of the ideas until out that was that. It could cause a Gulf style, the tour to the tools one tour if the merger happens to to split off geographically for that to be a European tour and a North American tour, maybe they could be just a Cologne. They've got it sussed. The adult Casper in that everyone well, leave led me to exactly where I want to go that David. We left around for twenty minutes talk about the tennis. Let's talk about the dogs on this amount is and why? Why all tournaments haven't been doing that forever. Because it seems Cost. Recovering to. Purchase one of. Those son. Ledgers with. Just put the dog on it yet is that the one thing that you would introduce into all tennis events if you? I thought. I'm I. I've got so many most of my Most of my curiosity about Cologne, two centers around the the dogs on the Sun Lounges will be. Different Dogs. DIFFERENT LOUNGES DIFFERENT Different. Seating equipment altogether. You describe the scene because I I've never seen. It but I mean, know the the the first row of spectators would normally be the hospitality rose around the perimeter of the cold. With surrounded by soft furnishings by by. Kind of Hof like. What, what are you cool in Cypher? Was the tournament sponsored by a garden furniture mattress. Right. This is like ideal isn't you? I saw this on have I got news view on Friday. Got Me to the West Brom's mascot is a man dressed as a boiler. Correct. Absolutely, right? Yeah. Ideal. Boilers, if we want to give them a plug. And these. I mean, you're of potentially need some boiler doing flats. Thanks for that yes. Well, the pretty good. Catherine and yes, they do have a person who is dressed up in a boiler suit. Must something that tennis has never really. Indulged in I, feel like the dogs on the the dogs on the sun lounges sort of an early foray potentially into the realm of mascots. Now Yell into camera faces the had cameras attached to them. So that went. Yeah go pros when they were running around the cool amine. Attempt think the foot. Great. Donald. In that situation, you can see everything but the. Yeah agreed. And less into the sugar and then. Did they ever explain why we had to go to Lounger. ISOS. Disavow accepted it in the context of the year twenty twenty-nine everything is strange. Lot of a lot. Was the band introduced to replace the crowds? No, I think the ban was. There throughout. Crowd. With the band once the crowds at gone that was what made him. Those abandoned his nobody to play. Kind was that was that failed because they were really cool band and they just came on at the sit downs for every for every match and the what some of the looks on the players faces I mean some of them did look a bit distracted MSA. Genre of music we talking here. I'm trying to think what they were. Cool. They were called like the swag or something. And I didn't I didn't think genre of music relief went with the name. I. Wasn't that just the tournaments description of the van rather than its name They called the Aliswag band or something like that. Swing. Knife definitely. Wasn't that. It was a bit. Jesse USA. Music or country. On, the. See where they playing hit but they playing bangers. No. Heard. It felt quite fitting in as much as it felt like they were very much playing for their own enjoyment and. They have in the best time and. Didn't matter because nobody else is there. So nobody nobody to. Have to impress. And I I. liked it but. It just did the plays enjoy it. Well, I thought that they kind of enjoyed it but. You could also tell them thinking I'm trying to concentrate. But but I couldn't be more perfect for twenty twenty to just see this court with these sun beds all around with with a couple of people who take their shoes off whilst on this on these beds that obviously paid for the right sitting there with the dog on the lap. Few. Feet away from Andy Murray as he's trying to serve and then when they got sit down disband pipes. Perfect for twenty. Twenty. Tournament directors listening you know what you've got to do. So yeah we had Obama won the doubles they be Lucas Cuba Marcelo Melo in the final you mentioned on Mary that he lost in the opening round. To Fidel Hyundai Vida's. and. We saw subsequently heard the perhaps not altogether surprising news that. he has withdrawn from Cologne to Andy, Murray House with injury to his US on the on the on the official form where it says. Withdrawals and says the body parts that you have Andy Murray brackets hip and. It's a pretty sad sites saying that and. It a slightly side sight seeing him against. Against, Finan David Oscar isn't it? I thought he was better than at the French Open when he just. was never a moment when he was in the match against care the worst some moments in this one against that ask authority was yeah. He hits them claim when a returns. But, he's also planning a guy who's not va rinker. It was still. It was still kind of bittersweet failing to watching Andy Murray watching any Murray..

How Russia Is Trying To Boost Bernie Sanders' Campaign
"Last month senator Bernie Sanders acknowledged he'd been briefed by the intelligence community about Russia's efforts to boost his campaign efforts that are unwelcome NPR's Tim mak looks deeper into what Russia's campaign to boost Sanders looks like Russia's campaign includes an ever changing number of targets based on Russian strategic goals including reportedly the reelection of president Donald Trump but its support for Sanders in particular has become an attack line take this example from former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg during a recent presidential debate Vladimir Putin things that Donald Trump is should be president added states and that's why rusher is helping you but you'll have Sanders had this response Hey Mr Putin if I'm president the United States trust me you're not getting into it anymore American elections the Russian government's apparent campaign to aid centers would mostly be hidden behind the anonymity of the internet but there are ways to look to Russia's public messaging to see how they're supporting the senator Clint watts has been monitoring Russian interference as part of his work with the foreign policy research institute he says Russian state backed media was more neutral on Sanders in the fall but has begun to mirror pro Sanders talking points for scene four years ago but what's really come on strong just in the last thirty to forty five days are very similar narratives that we saw in twenty sixteen about Sanders on Russian news agencies RT and Sputnik what's noticed that Sanders received substantially better coverage than his opponents Sanders received a higher percentage of positive coverage two and a half times more than any other democratic candidates surpassing even president Donald Trump by that metric and Sanders received far less negative coverage than his rivals Jessica Brandt who works with the alliance for securing democracy has also examined Russian narratives about Sanders those tend to be that the corporate media and that the democratic establishment the DNC and elites are breaking the system against him and you know endeavoring to deny him a win another way to gauge Russia's support for Sanders is by examining social media accounts linked to their efforts in October Facebook announced it has suspended Instagram accounts with apparent links to the internet research agency a Kremlin linked troll farm based in St Petersburg Facebook share this data with graphic a social media analytics firm which said that four of the suspended accounts had a focus on praising senator Sanders he was the only candidate on the democratic side there was a focus of these fake accounts in some cases these accounts plagiarize memes and content directly from the centers can paint one post read quote millions of people in America want to get an education and Bernie Sanders is their last hope the centers can paint says Russia is trying to do their best to sow discord in the race not elect Bernie Sanders and campaign co chair congressman ro Khanna points out that the senator has been a fervent advocate of solutions to foreign interference senator Sanders has been at the forefront of election security what we need is paper ballots what we need is an investment in our election infrastructure what we needed is smart regulation against disinformation campaigns but Sanders is disavowal of Russia's efforts haven't stopped them we can yeah is the vice president of the national security program at third way a center left think tank that opposes a Sanders candidacy one of the things I think Russia looks at when they see Bernie is that he's someone who's talking about a rigged system he's talking about delete aren't with you with a long election campaign ahead this year the sense among experts is that problems with foreign interference are

I'm sure it was super weird for him but he was really good teacher and I think that link the relationship was kind of inherently different. But there there were also upsides to that right like he understood a little bit more bound like my culture than most of my teachers. Juries did like he was able to relate historical narratives to the present in ways. That like you know. My teachers in their eighties weren't able to so he had a different. He had a a different kind of authority. And I guess the thing that I I would just say to you as as an encouragement to me because he was just even though he he's just a few years older like he seemed so cool. New Everything you know like he knew he knew so much. And so. That's that's where your authority really comes from. Frankly like you know so much more than whatever you're teaching like you know like like I remember one time I was walking around with my very smart young My Best Friend's incredibly smart young child and he said you know Joe Joe. I know more math than you do. And I said no you don't and he said Yeah I do and I said No. It's it's annoying. I don't WanNa do this Coleman and he said I do when I say. Ra Coleman what's the square root of four. And he said to and I said what's three cubed and he was like twenty.

"One day of work. I've never not wanted to make blog. Brothers like my my motivation. Ovation definitely ebbs and flows by. I I know when it's waning. That that's part of the cycle. Yeah Yeah likewise. I've never not never wanted to throw in the towel on like nerd fight area. There have been times. I've wanted to be like youtube. I'm done with with you. What happened to this? And that's I think that's partly nostalgic but like the math kind of looking back at a time when it was different in thinking that it was better when it was just different. Yeah it was bad it was. It's always been banned and and and I think that there's been frustration in in that way with sort of like how I imagined myself as part of a creative community but not as how I imagined myself as part of like a creative cadaver with my brother. There have been times when I've wanted to throw in the towel. And other things of course and and have and we've had a number KNBR things that we've started in really wanted to succeed in the they have failed. And then I try to bring back truth or fail for a fifth time and it still doesn't work and that's okay And so like part of that is the thing isn't working and then sometimes I really. Yeah I do realize that I've signed on for too much and that it's not so much a throwing thing in the towel it's A. What are the things that actually matter? What are the things that are going to enable me to be a functional person and like act and also be happy and so it's can sometimes be easy to take for granted the things you should be prioritizing in your life and that's almost always the people that care about and in the moments when I have wanted to throw in the towel it's it's usually been because I haven't been prioritizing the things that matter more same for me? I think ninety nine percent of your happiness in life is for me is relational and based on the health of the foundational relationships in my life and when I feel like I'm neglecting that I'm right I'm correct to be concerned about that but I want to say something L. Tank. which is that you talked about? How you've brought back the truth or fail? Six six times in its failed six times..

Hey guys I was wondering after ten plus years of producing various content was was there a period when it was extremely hard to get through and you consider throwing in the towel. Can you tell us about that moment. Patrick says tell experience for us on stage in front of six hundred people your worst. I mean I consider throwing in the towel last night. There have been a few times for me so part of this question presumes that there wasn't a time when when I threw in the towel and and you just didn't notice and there have been times when I through the tow and you just didn't notice because like I was able to carefully arrange for you not to notice in Twenty fifteen. I was in a really and shape mental health wise and had like three ethically bad months and then three fairly bad months during which I was able to make very little brothers video every every week but like you the whole week was Kinda oriented around that like you know that that.
