Moby Dick part twenty one-Fedallah Emerge, Ishmael lowers to chase - burst 01
"Now we're going to meet a very intriguing and important character amongst the Stanton crew one that will inject much mystery and emotion into his own story a man unlike any we have met so far in this story. It's been brought to my attention recently the aspect of prophecies and profits in this story. something I spoke enough and early episodes profit or someone who was hyper-aware or knowing something that the rest of us do not Whether it's through a higher perception or something delivered from a dieting. There are many different meanings and outlooks on the word when it comes to people. We think of Elijah when I speak of profit in this story some people think of Ahab as he seems to self prophesize and believe strongly in his own words. The way he says would strike the Sun. The way he seems to be writing his own text upon the world and following it in a self dictatorship. They'll some give much Merit to his prophecies. This is something we cannot discuss until the end of book, but I bring it up here because it has been said that this character that I'm about to introduce is the truest form of a profit we get in the whole story. To me that just
Ice Age Temperatures Help Predict Future Warming
"How. Much colder wasn't at the peak of the last ice age that's a question. Scientists have been trying to answer for decades, and now they have a new best guess eleven degrees Fahrenheit. That's a lot especially considering it's a global average parts of North America. We're much colder first of all large areas of the northeast were completely under ice. So that would have been pretty chilly wouldn't be living there but even here in the West right where we weren't covered by an ice, she would have been something like twenty degrees. Fahrenheit Lower Jessica tyranny a Paleo climatologist at the University of Arizona tyranny and her colleagues spent years compiling information about. Earth's climate at the height of the last glacial period about twenty thousand years ago. So we obviously don't have to Ramadan in the glacial periods. So we have to instead look for these kinds of standing indicators. One kind of stanton is plankton that lived in the ocean and got preserved in marine sediments. Scientists use these fossils to infer past ocean temperatures by studying changes in the chemistry of their shells and in the kinds of fats and other compounds they produced. Tyranny and her team then combine these data with a climate model to give a full picture of glacial conditions. It's actually technique us every day whether forecasting. What's new is we're using it for the past not the future. So we're actually hind casting if you will rather than forecasting the study is in the journal Nature. The findings suggest that the last ice age was significantly colder than scientists thought and that matters today the reason that. We want to know how cold last ice ages beyond the fact that it's just a cool thing to know. Is that we can actually use it to understand a quantity called climate sensitivity climate sensitivity is a measure of how much the planet warms in response to rising greenhouse gases. In this long ago case, we know how much carbon dioxide concentrations increased between the last ice age in preindustrial period from air bubbles trapped in ancient ice, and now we have tyrannies new results on the temperature difference between glacial and interglacial conditions. Together, these data suggest that low end estimates of climate sensitivity in which greenhouse gases don't cause much warming are unlikely to be correct if we have low climate sensitivity than than, we would be less worried about what all the missions are going to do. And so we can kind of rule those those possibility out know I suppose that's that's not great news.

China's exports ramp up as countries emerge from lockdowns
"Guest is middle contentious. Senior AM strategist at TD Securities. Just a little interested in your thoughts on China. Two things one the president talking today about decoupling. So that's AH, Big issue. And the other is how strong do you see the recovery? We had strong export numbers yesterday. But even our own economists at Bloomberg say that this was exaggerated little bit by base effects. Your thoughts. That's right. I think that's a fair assessment. When you look up the trade numbers, for instance, loving you were exaggerating God by perfect but exports benefited from like personal protective equipment. Electronics have benefited from Lock down on stay home. So in a sense, it flattered data but nonetheless exported out for three straight months on DH. If anything, gets the concern on recovery, more import side of himself I guess the perhaps planet's momentum is not a strong pops appears, but I do think that you know China's if you really look at the weight of the virus have been dealt with, but there are limited cases. Now on, If anything with the economy looking lot of the other day, it seems we're doing we could be well, it suggests a sign. It's coming out of the unreasonable shape. But of course, The big unknown is how tensions in the U. S in the manifest themselves into the economic impact on China. Here. Let's talk a little bit more about that President Trump suggesting an even greater decoupling between the US and China. To what degree do you think, though that selection airing Well, if you'd like. I think that's already in process. I mean US policy. The US whole of government policy on China has been towards greater decoupling anyway. I think it's It's a case of you know, I think President Trump just voicing what in reality officials awards, So I think I'm going to see more of that. Especially ahead of election. Yes, you're right. In a sense of some of this. Election rhetoric, But I think there is a very strong view amongst the administration to move on to cut ties with China and several ways a language and I think it's not just Republicans voicing Democrats similarly are doing as well. It's unclear whether a fighting presidency Would mean that we're paying any attention with China at all. To be Frank. I think that's something that the general public in U. S a very supportive over sort of negative stands towards China, and I think that's going to continue. What would you say? As you look out across the investing landscape is the biggest challenge at the moment. I think it's just the ongoing uncertainty with devices and it's definitely AH, still, you challenge we know that market risk assets equity markets phenomenally well because of the liquidity that the Fed and other central banks provided, where the biggest gaps clean with green economy, and you know that that gap between the pretty accuse rally the asset. On the real economic outlook is very, very wide. Indeed, nothing is going to be a huge challenge going forward unless you see a vaccine or something change with regard to getting on top of these wires globally. It's going to very difficult to see how quickly they really quality recovered going, Warden. We had horrendous Q two numbers across the world Q. T bounced back. But again that's probably based reality is a long way to go before you can get back to where growth Pre virus, let alone in terms of any real Stanton of benefiting from some sort of vaccine, Except I think that's going to be a major challenge policy making. It probably means more fiscal stimulus completed because one thing this effectively becoming a joint with anyone.

New York's Central Park unveils new statue honoring women’s rights pioneers
"Many say it was a long time in coming. The city today unveiled a statue in Central Park of Women's rights pioneer Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Sojourner Truth Hillary Clinton was on hand today on women's Equality Day We are unveiling a new statue in Central Park for the first time in over six decades, the first statue of Riel, non fictional women.

The Nineteenth Amendment Turns 100
"On this centennial of the nineteenth amendment. Celebrate the persistence of the suffragettes and also recognize that the generations long fight was marred by racism, classism and anti-semitism. In this episode of Can we talk will explore the role of African American and Jewish women in fighting for women's right to vote and the lessons we can learn from the history. Judith Rosenbaum talked with three historians and she's here now to share those interviews with us. Hi, Judith Honey. So who are we going to hear from? I? I, will hear from Ellen de Boys. She's professor emeritus at Ucla, and she's been researching and writing about the suffrage movement since the early nineteen seventies her newest book is suffrage women's long battle for the vote. And true to the title of her book, She talks a lot about how drawn out this fight was and the incredible tenacity of the women who fought for the right to vote I take a long time that it took the stubbornness and consistency of the leaders who refused to give up to use the quote that was used against Elizabeth Warren. Nevertheless they persisted. Several generations lived and died without winning the vote and still did not give up. So I would say democracy is frequently if not always imperilled must be regularly defended or it will be lost. Alas I would say our constitutional order which we think of as being like the sun in the morning in the moon at night may not be eternal and we must act for. And finally, that in our activism, you really have to take the long view and not be discouraged because we're GONNA lose a lot like, Allen I too have found both wisdom and warnings in the suffrage movement. After the two thousand sixteen election I turned to history since as a historian that's what I tend to do and I was really drawn to the stories of the suffragettes. They gave me some perspective and reminded me to take the long view. I was worried about the next four years while these people who worked tirelessly for decades and many of them died before seeing the fruits of their labor. I asked Ellen how they sustain the Movement for so long she reminded me that while women were fighting for the right to vote, they made plenty of other gains along the way. So we have education, we have professions women are. Their lawyers their writers artists. So much so that by the time selfridge calms, it's almost like. To put it in a good way. It's like the icing on the cake to put it in a bad way. It's so overdue of women are a quarter of the labor force hold visions of the American economy couldn't exist that working women. So let's leftist politics and the question is why keep women out of politics? The other thing I would say is it's important to remember that along the way there are suffrage achievements of the most important of which are that many of the states west of the Mississippi are granting women are women are winning their activism. Right to vote, they have full voting rights. They are voting for president, a women of Colorado vote for president in every election starting in eighteen nineties. I the time that this effort to change. Suffrage state-by-state slightly crosses the Mississippi and arrives at victory in most powerful state in the union. York in nineteen seventeen over four million women, vote. So they already have the vote. These are important victories but Ellen, and I also talked about the failures of the suffrage movement especially, the racism that emerged in the fight over the Fifteenth Amendment the Fifteenth Amendment granted African American men the right to vote in eighteen seventy right prior to that suffer and abolitionist worked closely together and rallied around the call for universal suffrage that is voting rights for all. But in the lead up to the Fifteenth Amendment when it became clear that the Republican Party would only support suffrage for black men the movement split. Some were willing to accept the compromise voting rights for African. American men but not for women and some were not and this created a really painful rift. That's when the famous. Between abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass, and suffrage leaders, Susan B., Anthony and Elizabeth cady stanton was shattered. Yes. Stanton and Anthony News that the opportunity an amendment wouldn't come around again for a long time. They were enraged that after decades of activism both against slavery and four women's rights, women were being told to wait and they and other white Selfridge's felt it was unfair that quote unquote on educated black men would get the vote before educated white women. Here's what Ellen says about Stanton's public response. Stanton's particularly. Speaks over a period of a couple months really drawing on a lot of racist rhetoric and it's very painful. She was in her sort of core elitist. And that had a racist element to it, but it also had anti immigrant element to it too. She thought as she used to say women like herself shouldn't have to wait to get the vote until the daughter of. Blacks in butchers she said got vote.
Boston - Bill Belichick's first practice impression of Cam Newton: 'He's a hard-working kid'
"Howard things in Foxboro know Tom Brady anymore for Bill Belichick, but he does have Cam Newton Maze All Walker's a lot. Information's been transferred to all the players. And he's worked very hard to say it's all our players have. We have, you know, hard working group not said certainly for all the quarterbacks at that position. Those guys have been locked in that focused work extremely hard. All four of them cans hardworking kid He really is in Fitz Simmons. Freddie Coleman, take a look at that relationship for coach Bell, checking his New quarterback Cam Newton camp is all about showing people that his time in the sun is still going to be there, not just being a quarterback in the NFL but a successful quarterback in the NFL, and if he's able to do that would build Bella check. Bill better does not need to send that guy a message saying you have to compete because I get the sense that this is exactly what Campbell wants to show people that he can't compete. He will compete and win this job. I think it's more than likely. That he's going to be the starting quarterback. But that Jared Stanton guy is not just going to give it to him. And I'm sure that a guy like Cam new knowing that this is potentially his last shot to be a starting quarterback in the NFL. He better realize that and if he does, that's not only going to be good for him. It is going to be really good for his dad calling camp doing the kid Bill Bill, check the coach of the Patriots. You tell me right now where Bill Belichick is a Sfar starting quarterback goes He's not bringing up everybody else's name, you know, especially stadium. Every time he posed the question about Cam Newton. It's for a purpose. Sending a message to camp. Save your job. You have to earn it. And right now, if you asked me that 60 40 cam is a

Professor Mohammad Fadel Returns to Discuss the Current Political Climate
"BOCOM professor frontal a really happy to have you on I know you've been on the show in the past prior to when I joined when we had different co host, but I did over the weekend a that episode I think he was episode thirty, three, thirty, four from summer, two thousand sixteen, and I listened to it just to catch up and hear a little about Your your background and your points of view. Is a super interesting. kind of got me thinking of of all the craziness that that's happened. Since two thousand sixteen, right life has been crazy in general since maybe nine eleven you could say but We've kicked it into high gear since the trump election, and now of course everything that's going going on with the virus of macro level. But It's like I said it's been crazy year. And you explain the rise of trump through economics, and that really that really resonated with me. You were talking about how things have gotten global and whatnot, and because there's more supply and demand you talked about more more more supply of workers may be flat or left Earth's or lower demand of of of jobs in the capital, potentially for the for the lower class. things have only gotten worse right so. Do you see. Do you see that that pattern continuing and potentially leading to more and more extremism or are you? Are you hopeful? Well I mean. covid changed a lot of things. So I mean. So let me back up I. Guess Trump from the beginning. Began to charge reorient trade policies began posing lots of openly protectionist measures. And then Cova conflict celebrated that. And layer on top of that a certain kind of anti Chinese Stanton. That Kobe has reinforced. That was already pre existing. and. So now. Yeah was situation where there's a kind of broad consensus among the political class that something has to be done about China. Now it's not clear what that will mean. In terms of global trade, because the global trading system is highly dependent on Chinese purchase patient, but as you, you know just in the last few months atop has been ratcheting up the pressure on China Army Right now trae closing council it's. Posing greater greater sanctions on Chinese tech firms, etc, odds greater confrontations with China in the in the South China Sea among other things. and then coverted has caused a lot of people that make me. We need to bring back a lot of production of things back to the United States. Now I don't know how realistic that. Ambition is particularly if it's more than a few products that might be viewed as critical in the public health emergency. but the General Point that I made twenty sixteen I think about global economics remains the case today. That is of great benefit in the aggregate to the United States. Particularly United States but at the same time there are a lot of losers from globalization The trump response to bat has been to try to engage protectionism. In a in a certain sense kind of change, the terms of trade in a way that slanted the United States by imposing tariffs on trading partners now United States can get away without just an extent because the united. States has such a leading role in the global economy, no country. Wants to be excluded from the US market. So they are. Willing to go along, and there's very limited steps that they can take in the short term. To retaliate against the US, the problem is. Over the medium to long term. States wants to take that approach to global trade. It's likely that it's going to produce. Reactions, right! You might see a rise of different kind of trading bloc centered around China for example centered around Europe right in which other countries enter into our French trading relationships with each other. To protect themselves in the United States. You also see this going on with the role of the dollar. Nice, as has been very aggressive in using the role of the dollar as the world's reserve currency to impose sanctions, Willy Nilly, all over all over the world thereby effectively. Telling the rest of the world that if you want to trade with us, you can have to adopt our sanctions regimes. and so even places like the EU or trying to build out. Heyman systems that can bypass the dollar right so they can escape the kind of US stranglehold on the global, market! So our costs while twice as there are costs involved to trying to either export you use US economic our to impose its will in terms of geopolitics with the dollar or with Tariffs Charles. Trade. In order to protect US workers. There's a much easier route. which I would like to see A. Dog! And it's possible it could happen. If there's a large enough democratic featuring, remember namely we preserve the gains of the post. World War Two liberalize trading system, but combine it with a much higher level of taxation. That would allow the government to redistribute the gains from International Trade and compensate the losers. What we've had going on the United States since the Reagan Revolution is a double whammy to the working class in that. Global. Association has undermined security jobs on the one hand and I guess conservative. mark pro-market policies domestically destroyed the the welfare state internally. Right. And so. Yeah, you have cheap TV's. Education is unbelievably expensive. Helped expensive. Real estate is on XP. Unbelievably expensive right. So. The most fundamental goods are outside the reach of the average worker, even even professionals right. consumption goes are really cheap an audit it feels like the current administration is doing if you look at the two by two of of what you just laid out right like less less fairness, and Lester is redistribution, more fans, smartest redistribution, globalization versus nationalism that the current administration is going towards nationalism without fairness, and you want to go towards globalization, which is good for everybody in the long run plus Mauri, distribution and fairness. Strategy of trump and Publican party is to. Push back against globalization where the United States does not have apparently advantage by using tariffs. Right. And then imposing. Her fragile trading charms on its trading partners where it does. And then instead of we distribute Gel redistributionist policy to to. Income! WHAT THEY WANNA do is used tariffs to protect its France.
Jennifer Palmieri: Women need to declare their independence from men
"If it's truly possible for a woman to ever be elected to lead this country. Right men were left to reflect on their privileges and women continue to tackle the systemic patriarchy This country was founded on now, four years later, presidential hopeful Joe Biden. Has promised that he will run with a female vice presidential running mate. The suspense grows daily around who his running mate will be. My next guest argues that women must break from the confinement of established standards set by men and instead hold themselves to a different standard altogether. In order to reach positions of influence. So joining me now is Jennifer Palmieri familiar face to those of you who watch a lot of politics. On television. She served as communications director for the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. And was also the White House communications director for president Obama. Now she's president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund and author of a brand new book called She Proclaims Our Declaration of Independence. From a man's world. Jennifer. Great to have you with us again. Welcome back to WN. Thank you, Brian. I'm really happy to be with him. So you're book begins with a nod to the signing of the Declaration of sentiments, the 18 48 manifesto that described women's grievances and demands. Written primarily by Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It called on women to fight for their constitutionally guaranteed right to equality as U. S citizens and independence from men. And you, right? That we are also at a time today where women need to declare their independence from men want to start there and talk about in what ways you mean Independence. Yeah, I wanted Teo. I mean, what I had, you know my realization Wass that As far as when they come in the world, particularly in the last few decades. Next month, we'll celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, and, uh, for decades. We've made a lot of progress, and then we just just butter out. We just keep hitting the same plateau. The last three decades, in particular, obviously experience that Hillary Clinton's campaign But you see it in business, You know, 40 The Fortune 500 CEOs, Only 7% of them are women. You say? You know, we have 75% of Congress. It's still it's still men. And at some point you say, we're not not doing this wrong, right? We're not doing this wrong, but I maybe left. It proved there's something else going on here. Andi. I think that following a man past which I believe we did sort of after women. One suffrage had the right to vote used that as a tool, Teo to sort of, you know, work our way into both politics and the professional world. Um, But, you know, my experience is partly within the Clinton campaign. Following a man's path could only get you so far and I wanted to go back. And learn more about suffrage that fight because I felt that was sort of the last time in America that women came together to try to advocate for their rights. And what can you learn from it? I learned that when women come together and believe in themselves, even though they don't have any power to power of their voice, the tire of the action can affect real change. And you also learn that there's a troubled history there, too, when it comes to race and when white women are not good allies. Two black women, two black people, tio Black Americans, overall that hold back progress for everyone. And to those of the things that the book tries checks for. What did you mean? Just now if I heard you, right? That the Hillary Clinton campaign followed a man's model. So we didn't We did not have all 45 presidents now have been then. So we have ah, image of her head of what That looks like, right? You have a certain bar you have to reach. There's there's um We think they men you know, we think are male leaders have it? There's a certain weight they're certain timber to their voice the way they stand there. Strength that they project there's strength. They project in terms of being the commander in chief. All of these things we have internal lives for, you know, at this point for the country itself for close to 250 years and as individuals, we have our entire life on I think you know, one of things I ask people to do. And the book is imagine what it would be like for men. If women had been in charge from the start, right, if women had always all of our presidents have been women and a man ran, that would be very jarring tow us and I think that that man might try to Try to adapt himself to behave more like a woman. Because even though he knew he was different from a woman Ah, he saw that the women were the ones with all the power And I think this is this is sort of the vice that Hillary found herself in. Woman that ran in 2020. I think it was. I think I think things progress a little bit. It was. We had sort of adjusted in some ways, the scene women in those roles. But, you know, you realize, even though 2020 and very modern world when you consider these things from the scope of history, it's still kind of a rat. It's a radical thing for a woman to be in charge. Clearly a radical thing for a woman to be in charge. United States and, um, you know, I felt that in my own career, I've never felt like a man tried to hold me back. I have had good male mentors all along the way, but still Men I worked with rose faster than I did. But still, I didn't read certain Ashkelon and I looked around. Other women also getting sort of, you know of Lax going. And I had a you know, I used to think I was doing great in a man's world. And then I realize I'm doing great propping up the man's world, but I'm doing it, making it run well for them. We keep producing generation after generation of the majority. World huge majority of positions of power in this country being held by men. And so even the job of a job, But I know that if my realization was like, I kind of, you know, I'm I'm perpetuating this and it's not just blocking women. It's blocking all people of color. I'm getting the power they deserve and It was a radical realization I had and that's My Brecht book. So does that
Dr. Anthony Fauci to throw first pitch at MLB's Opening Day game
"Washington, D C has become a diehard Nationals fan and he will be there. Let's see. Maybe he'll brood for a tie on Thursday night. Yankees the Nationals open the season at Nats Park, and Dr Fauci is going to throw out the first pitch the first game of baseball shortened season. The Yankees will spend the next two days finalizing the 30 man roster We might have seen. But I saw a sneak peek of the opening day lineup last night and that tie against the Phillies with D. J. Lo Mayhew leading off, followed by Aaron Judge Glaber Torres and Giancarlo Stanton. Here's Aaron Boone. Yeah. I mean, there's a good chance that that's what you could see Absolutely. You know, we'll see. Obviously, we'll see if D J is ready. But there's a good chance that that's what it could look like opening day and will make you a late arrival to summer camp because of Copan, 19. He's going to get more live at bats today. He wants to be in the lineup opening day, we'll see if that ends up being the case. Metz and Braves Open up
"I'm a Feminist But..." Social Distance Dancing and Zoom
"I'm a feminist Bart today for the first time. I went into a dance studio in a socially distance way from my dance. Instructor, Melissa Bravo, so for those don't know. My lockdown project was dance lessons. Because I wanted to make meaning of the time and I also wanted to make a faster and I thought you know what dirty dancing montage makes the time go really fast. Just go well. They've done a bit of this and a bit of this and a bit of this and then three months passed. So I thought I would learn to dance for surveys INS, and so I hired a dance Tacoma. Pravo who's very close to me, we'd zoom together for four months now Danzig every single day. And today for the first time we went into a studio, as was legally allowed, stood far from each other, and we just staring at each other, because we've seen more of each other in lockdown, any other human being, but not in the flesh, and already like met her once before this all happened, so we were just staring at each other for ages going. It's really you. It's really it's like. And it was we were seeing a video game avatar come to live, and then she looked and she went. On my God. This room is so big.

We say we royally. We are here with. With Roger Nygaard today who you may remember if you've listened to the entire show, you were the guest for our eighth episode. Eighth Episode Ever Wow if anybody's listening and his listen to every show since then you deserve a medal. Yeah, because a lot of shows, people have, and they deserve medals. Yeah, or at least a merit badge, a ribbon. Yeah, that was back in two thousand eleven when we started and we were talking to you then about. About the nature of existence, a documentary that you had created at that time you were exploring the depths of why we're here. All these deep questions was eighty, four, eighty three. There were a lot of questions. Yeah, I had a somewhere above eighty ninety questions that I asked everybody all my interview subjects, and squeezed it all into one documentary called the nature of existence. My core question, though above all those sub questions was. Why do we exist? What is our purpose here? Why are we supposed to do big topic in I? Set out to solve it and you did age-old existentialist question philosophers have been wrestling with it for centuries and I went out and solved. You didn't give away the answer on that episode, so you still have to watch that documentary. If you want to know the answer, but it's very socratic in that you, the the what I try to do is lead the viewer in a direction, so you can make your own decision or come to a realization on your own without me. Preaching to you, here's the answer well. That's smart. Because I think you were right to resist. Giving it on a silver platter because it doesn't work that way. However, when I made my next documentary, we may talk about today. The truth about marriage at the end I just stood up and said okay. Here's the answer. In case you missed it. Stop everything here. It is, and you did okay, so it's an eighty two minute documentary, the truth about marriage and you do you solve it? You talk to lots of experts and a lot of couples. Trying to think of couples as the correct collective term, yeah couples, but there's some complicated dynamic, because not everybody's relationship is the same. That's not a pejorative yet, but at the end of the documentary. Yes, you do solve it exactly what the truth is about marriage. I didn't know the answer when I sent out and I I become obsessed with what I'm doing wrong way. I'm such a failure. Hold on, you're leading me into interesting conversation and I haven't finished. Finished introducing you yet? We should also say by the way on that episode when we talk you us. I realized that was the first time that carried the name swap. She loves this every down then she decides to claim that she is Ross Blocher and I am thus forced by process of elimination to Declare Myself Carrie poppy. That was the first time she did it.

"stanton" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"Are you? Good Morning I give. Party with that Oh man. I don't know what the hell that is either, but I I. Kinda get the frustration with Stanton. There's no question about it. young fans are tired of hearing about the the ribs strains, the calf strains. The quad strains the elbow straight. What whatever the strain is! It seems like he has it, so does this count for our bet as to whether or not? This is a new injury or an old now. Is it a new or an old report? No it does not count as a new injury because we made the stipulations that he would have to come back, and this is before we knew that the season was gonna shut down, but he would have to come back play in a game and then reinjured for it to be a new injury, but just if he just missed time and miss time and ms time, and whatever it was still out with that other injury than it would, it would just be that same. Same One so we have to come back and play now if he comes back in that first game at the end of July Right H. hits the Ground Ball third runs to I polls the quad again then then that is absolutely a new injury, and whoever had the quad will win, but this, but this is all, but this is a what we're talking about. Today is we are talking about a calf injury. Yes, we are all right so if he does play. And he runs a poll out, and the CAF goes on him again. This that count or does it have to be different than the calf injury. No, so if not it would count if he's playing and then reinjured the calf. Yes, if he is playing, and then re injures that calf than that indeed counts, but he'd be Mrs. Let's let's say misses the first week of this new season with a calf injury than it does not count for people that don't know what we're talking about before corona virus and everything when John Carlos Stanton went down with this. This calf strain, we put all his muscles into a hat, and then pulled out a muscle to have one and we all through twenty dollars into the pot, and whoever gets his next muscle strain wins that pot, which is I believe one, hundred, twenty, one, hundred and forty dollars. Because we all we all have one now Eddie sent me the list I just have to find it I believe that he did. So we know exactly who's got what? I? Now does covid nineteen count? Well, it's not on their. On their right? Okay, so you know what that's the one thing you know, brought them wagon and said yesterday. Most baseball player, most baseball teams I would think given what's going on across the country right now. Probably end up in their fingers crossed as to how many guys are going to end up testing positive and then have to shut it down and then have to restart themselves. And, then who knows what happens over the next? Twenty one days. Yes, so I've got the list all right so this. This is the list for the Giancarlo Stanton next muscle pull. You've got groin boomer grinding grain growing I've got BICEP. Allah has squad, which is a good one looked trey. TRAE IF I could. Jerry's got hamstring. which is also very good. At he's got the oblique. bobbies got the glue Te. And CEELO has the calf. So it was. It was twenty dollars a man and he said he thinks it was fifty, but I believe it was twenty guy. It was definitely yeah. It was definitely twenty guys, so no one who guys are except Yuji Oh. You're not cheap. That's one thing that's right. Well, thank you. Guys are budget cheapskates man trying to get? A dollar out of their pockets almost impossible. At times at times, but yeah, so. That's twenty, forty, sixty, eighty, one forty. There's one forty in the pot you know how I would. I would kind of like describe our staff. Okay! How would you do that entitled? Wow Yeah! They just like. When we go out to dinner, we go out to lunch. Just look at you. Yeah lunch was good lunch. The I got it comes with the territory. Though, right? We don't do the fake reach into the. Nothing you got it right. Yeah, okay. I got it. No worries. Yeah. I mean it's sort of expected when I worked for Joe and Evan. That's I'd let them pay for absolutely everything. That's just what you do, I listen man. You know you're. You're good I. GOTTA. Tell you your great with that. You are like hey. I'm going to be chip in. Let me do this and you always want to participate so that that's out there and everybody needs to know that the rest of the sons of bitches are all. Freeloading titled. You know you're paying and that's all there is to it. Yeah! Freeloading entitled Sons of Bitches. Yes, that's what you have called. The people we work with. This morning. But, but isn't it alarming for someone like John Carlos Stanton? During this time I, think about the stuff that that we did there are. No professional athlete. You're a former professional. But losing weight getting in shape getting on the by going forty miles doing the Peleton. Whatever at two weeks straight in a row doing all these things that that we did me at thirty eight years old. You would fifty eight years old getting in shape. I've seen a World War Two don't forget the total. The total Jim is well I saw two stories of World War Two veterans that were about a hundred years old. Recover from Corona Virus, but John Carlos Stanton cannot get. He's calf correct, so he can play the outfield, and then what could might be even more alarming was sweeny tweeted out that it's more of a conditioning. For Giancarlo Stanton conditioning. So you're telling me during this entire time, you couldn't get in shape. That's what's going on tape. I mean he he's. He the conditioning issue, I mean I. Don't know what I don't know what Sweeney's alluding to, but. Obviously. Somebody told him that with the Yankees. John Giancarlo Stanton is not fat I mean he comes in. He's ripped. That's his problem. The problem with him is he is. He is. A Very Big Strong. Lack of body fat, just total rip. Stud I know I, know was muscles are tight. That's shocking about all of this is visual, not natural results. What was Schalke's you complete opposite? You pull the muscle. I know I know I. Mean it just gets to the point where I am complaining about someone pulling Mussels than you know. It's bad and John Carlos. Stanton is I. I just figured he'd be ready to go I made the joke about Giancarlo Stanton. If there's any man prepared for a sixty game season, this guy and that's all. He normally plays anyway I. In here he is as everybody reports on July I still dealing with this thing I mean didn't rip it off the bone. Months later, which is amazing? Right, so I mean I. He is shaping up to be a bigger bust than even. Jacoby Ellsbury at this point. I only had one decent season, and there was that stretch there where he carried the Yankees offensively when judge was out, but that was also the postseason against the Red Sox in that series where he It was just awful, so he's I mean this this series. This season's going to be different where people aren't going to really remember how good or bad you were, and it's going to be an asterisk season. We know that, but that's one of the things you needed to see. See Is Giancarlo Stanton. Actually being healthy after three months of nothing I mean all you had to do is get your calf ready for the season. Just that's all ended had to do in three months. You telling me that? If the season was going on, normally, we wouldn't see Giancarlo Stanton at this point in the season. How much of a travesty that would be? The season started in April May July twenty six is the first time we see Giancarlo Stanton. Think about that after what happened last year. And you still have the question of as to whether or not Aaron judge can swing fully so. I thought all this stuff would be put to bed James Paxton sounds like he's going to be fine, but still the starting pitchers I'm assuming these guys have been throwing. They've been doing things to try to keep their arms in shape I. Don't think anybody's stretched out. I I can't imagine that they would be. I, you know nobody's been throwing a highly stressful anxiety ridden. Level at this point, so you would hope that most these guys coming back would would come back, saying hey, look. I've been throwing I've been on a I've been on a program hopefully pitching coaches around the league and given those players you know. The roadmap that they continue to keep throwing and keep those arms lively, and hopefully when this thing picks up if it picks up now. If you if you take what Dr Fao Chea. Saying Man We'll have football. You will not have football. You you should be able to play. Conceivably. Play football at some point. In, the next fifty years..
"stanton" Discussed on It Happened In Hollywood
"It is pretty random. And What's Interesting Andrew Stanton? When he went to high school before he even realized he wanted to be an animator he will. He thought he might want to be an actor. He was really into musical theater and he was in guys and dolls and He was in a production of Hello Dolly. Hello Wally accent but It's interesting how those early formative interests can somehow leave a lasting effect on pop culture history. You know what's Funny Neibhorhood? Come out? It was in competition through a lot of awards with triplets of Belleville which I was a huge fan of and I was already in early development on wally at that point like really early like privately just coming up with stuff and we'll maybe talking only a few people and I always knew I wanted to open on space and I wanted and at the time I wanted to open with a couple. I had I two competing. French swing songs from the forties that I was thinking of. It just felt cool. This old old old swing turn the century other language song against the stars. It was just a visceral thing and then I was watching. Triple to bill the so many times and it was just felt like. Oh it's just going to look like I'm cribbing from them. Yeah you can get caught up in the time and think that you don't WanNa look like your copycat and And I'm Kinda glad that happened because it made me search farther and and I was in no rush I could basically come up with that idea and post so I knew I had four years but not long after I had been sort of scrolling through my ipod I put on shuffle a lot. Now just throw to use it like my radio just as you know at least at the time just to sort of see what comes at me and I had hello Dolly on there because I have just enough Broadway show tunes of things either like or things that I actually. We're was in when I was in school and I was in Helen Alley and up came that song and it just the minute I heard out there and just kinda worked and I kept listening to it and thinking about it and I remember asking my wife I said honey. I HAVE THE WEIRDEST IDEA I've ever had but I can't drop it and so we went for. That's got a lot of interesting stories behind that song because we'd never had to ask for the rights to something that pre existed and of course Disney got stopped right away by the Fox lawyers to get the song and it just turned out that our CFO at the time. A guy named Simon backs had been a high up Cfo at Fox prior and still new. Whoever was running it at the time and was able to kind of do a run around and call him directly and say look at this things. Just sit in your also you know we can all benefit a little bit if you just let us have the rights to it and and that's how we got it and that's the rest is history and then the crazy thing is is that when that film came out the actor that sang that in the movie. Michael Crawford who everybody then nude to become the fan of the opera contacts me and asks if we can have dinner and he's just blown away by the congruity of using that song and suddenly having it out there in this movie and he told me that when he was recording that they were on the Mgm Lot. They were recording it with an orchestra on that sound stage where we actually did the score for wally and gene. Kelly was the director and he couldn't get the singing right at the beginning of the song and finally gene. Kelly had to go into his his sound booth and say because he was in his early twenties at the time he said Kid. This is bigger than just kissing a girl. This is bigger than go into the city. This is the whole world. That's the whole universe of stars. And so he did when he hit it. And that's the take the used so he said it really blew his mind to see the stars and here that that song of him singing because he knew what he was envisioning. You know we always talk about how things come full circle and you know I love how like. They had to go through all these hoops to get Fox to say yes to allowing their song to be in a Disney movie and now Fox has been completely subsumed by Disney and it makes a difference is the same company and Fox doesn't exist anymore so any first century Fox so speaking of the Disney Fox merger you know we all know now Bob Eiger as the head of Disney and basically the emperor of the Universe. Thank for entertainment comes. He is Very powerful man and Has done a very good job in steering Disney to its global domination and he was new on the job at this point. And it's really kind of interesting to see you know. He went to visit the Pixar campus up in northern California. You know he was a little taken aback by by how differently. They did things up there but To his credit he also recognized the value of it. Bob Eiger by then taken over. He had seen an early passive it and by that time. He's like wow they've got I think it's even in his book that just came out like but he was like he walked away. He came up for a day to see all the things we were working. One on. Any walks outgoing. They got a rat in the kitchen. They got they got trash robot on apocalyptic planet. They've got a Septuagenarian with a Korean boy scout. Going up in a houseful. It's like just like he said I you know I. It just kind of overwhelmed him with how outside of the box we thought and to his credit it did. The exact opposite. Didn't scare him. It made him go. I think they're the people that are leading the dance and we should be following them. And that's how we felt. We felt like we were free of the shackles of whatever the Disney labeled meant that we were somewhere between incredible. 's and Nemo we are brand became this brand of trust that it would be something surprising and not what you expect. But it'll be worth your time and that's all we ever wanted was to get to that place so that it would end up in the best of all sense. Give us licensed to keep pushing the barriers. And that's kind of what happens so they it didn't if it if it scared people like. I said it kept kept it to themselves and I. I also did something that I don't usually do. Which was I thought we could debate for. We basically you know I I knew these guys really well and we had debated for a year or more on Toy story about whether buzz lightyears should go still when somebody comes in the room or not because of his delusion and we basically wasted year because realize we're asking a question that nobody will ask if we if we tell the story right and so I knew we could waste years debating whether you would watch a movie about a robot that didn't speak our language and so what I did is on the three to six months that I was supposed to take off after Nemo I stayed at the company and hit away with a couple story board artists in and enter and I put up a rough version of the entire first act of the movie and knew that if you just if I can convince myself I could sit and watch this then. All debate would go out the window because you just be caught up in the movie. I would just prove my thesis. And that's what happened and so I sort of circumvented all that. Worry because that kind of stuff when you listed like you do your victim to how to everybody's imagination or lack of to sell your idea and that's a really precarious place to be if you're trying to invent new color what you. I'd rather be in a position where I've already given you an example and corralled it again. This is like a drug to me. He just finding out how Pixar works right. I love this idea that they could for a solid year debate. Whether or not buzz light year should go still go still when people come into the room right. I mean you could imagine has that Philosophical debates going on at the Pixar offices. That really tickled me so anyway. We had him here and because this is the stuff I was most interested in. I kept pressing him I. I asked him to pull the curtain and tells a bit more about how things work at Pixar and he was very forthcoming. There's the overall philosophy which is basically we invest in the people not the process. We've just the process was sort of discovered along the way for the people that we invested in where they're sort of an original band on on that that Everybody understands there's just. This elusive chemistry. That can just sort happen with a garage band and you. You don't like to analyze it too hard or else it may lose. Its magic and we had that with the original group that made the first movie and then just out of complete necessity financially. We had to expand and we I remember US having this conversation like wow. You're you're basically asking the Beatles to just break up make solo albums so that we can survive financially but like the only reason we made this movie any good us because we were together so we kinda came up with this sort of simplistic idea that we could still branch off each individually maybe direct other films and then meet as the same group that we always were to help oversee each other's projects just as a sort of like doctors advising another doctor in the operating room but meet his peers. Not as a tribunal not judges and that's how it worked for a very long time. We worship small enough. We are only about one hundred to two hundred people. We grew to about six hundred people when we moved into their studio. After the first ten years and it we we made that work sort of the same gestalt the same sort of creative spark that we seem to conjure up when we all got together could be manifested whenever we needed it to when when we had a problem or when we just needed some objectivity and the practical side of that is we basically built a big building and then invested in individual filmmakers or people that we felt could become great individual filmmakers almost like a Fox searchlight Miramax or something we just and then we they went off and made their crews like an independent feature and we just have these built in check INS. Were they screen for us? Where they're at about every four to five months and the thing that's different about us just animation. In general is that we don't write a script and then make it. We basically hound on an idea until we have somewhat of a treatment and then we make it so. It's really nerve wracking because imagine if you said to a screen writer go off and Start writing now that we love this idea. And we've sold it to the studio but we're going to have the entire crew that eventually gonNA shoot it sort of your shoulders while you type. And that's pretty much how we work. So it's can be super stressful because you and what we learned on on a bumpy way over that time was to embrace failure so the thing the only thing I think that makes us really unique. Because it's not a fun factory here but it's a safe place. It's a safe place to fail. We expect you to fail. We expected to be encouraged to take risks. And try things that you wouldn't normally be brave enough to do otherwise because that's always where we had historically solve certain problems or found the gold to to mine and we found that there's a you can create a sort of disciplined method of a failing as you move forward and slowly evolve the closest thing. I can probably equate it to is work shopping play. If anybody's ever been involved in theater. The playwright has all the power or at least the authority and they write something and then they put it up on. Its with tables and chairs at some point on a stage with some actors and with fully expecting after the workshop at. They're GONNA go back and fix what they don't like. We basically do that but with a lot of expensive equipment and a lot more people a lot more overhead. So we're not cheap. All right there you have it Another glimpse inside the workings of the mysterious hit factory. That is Pixar and I found it really fascinating that he says that they give them so much freedom to fail when pretty much all..
"stanton" Discussed on It Happened In Hollywood
"Yes so as we teased. We wanted to pick episode and my favorite. Pixar movie by far. Is Wally useful film? And so we took a shot and we asked if the Director Writer Wally Andrew Stanton the one of the founders of Pixar would would do our show and he said yes and so crazy. I was in Syria shock. That he said yes. He doesn't do many interviews but he did. So you're in for a treat. The guy is I don't know what you save. There's something so fundamental. He reached out and touched my heart. Yeah Corny for a second now. He's like it definitely you get that feeling. He's just one of the guys. Yeah and all that comes through in his films. You've seen toy story. Finding Nemo the sequel to finding Nemo Finding Dory he is the second animator hired a pixar after John last. But you know what it's really is a group effort over there so even if he doesn't get like it is but if your credit goes he's contributing to all the pixar movies they're a think tank but you know he's he's a great he's a giant he's like you know. Walt Disney adjacent and in terms of the influence. He's had over popular culture and animation. So okay enough building up and I think we made the point. This is a big deal. Yeah all right. Let's go back in time. A bit to two thousand and eight. This is an interesting period in American history. Basically the economy completely collapses. Oh my God. All these huge banks go under people are losing hope and then. Wally dropped into theaters in June of two thousand and eight now. What do you remember of wally? That the first fifteen twenty minutes are virtually kind of well. It's dialogue less so silence of that being very arresting. Yeah and also you know for Disney film. It was set on this bleak garbage planet earth. Earth well no way wizard earth. I'm earth right now right. Well like Earth in the future. What's so intense about the movies like you're of looking at what's what's going to happen to our home and what's going to happen to us. Because in the second half they go up in space and humans have evolved. These blobs that never look up from their screens. Which pretty much where we are now. So it right onto space crews. It's basically a very bleak vision for a Disney movie and yet within it. Is this beautiful love story between two robots and it. It made a huge impression on me. I was very taken by this movie and specifically by Wally. If you don't fall in love with wally there's something wrong with your heart. Yeah and there's just something beautiful about the movie that it's like a like a foreign film robot movie anyway we cover all these things with with Andrew we cover. How has this bleak but prescient vision of where things are heading with the environment and with technology and You know the more charming silent film aspects or foreign film aspects of it. But why don't we start just with where? He was in his career when wally as notion for popped into his head. Right after we finished toy story. So we're talking ninety five we didn't. We were so focused on trying to finish a movie. We didn't really think about what if this succeeds. And we'll have to keep going and we'll have to keep people employed that we've hired and So we were in a mad scramble to come up with what we would do next and a bug's life of course is what ultimately came to mind. I but in our sort of brainstorming. Over the sort of now infamous lunch we SORTA blurted out What if there was a robot and was the last robot on earth and it just kept going doing its job because it didn't know that it could stop that and it was such a lonely futile character. I was like immediately attracted to it and couldn't stop thinking about it but then we had to be so all hands on deck to as a just the entire company to get the next several films working and out the door that it it really took until middle of Working on Nemo. So you're talking. Gosh that would have been ninety nine. Yeah like four or five years. Later I'm trying to do rewrites on Nemo and I'm and everybody's waiting sort of equivalent of everybody's waiting on set and I I'm such a procrastinator when I write and I couldn't stop Thinking about this robot suddenly and I ended up writing the first act to what you now know as wally when I should have been rewriting. The fixes on Nemo and I told myself that that was productive. Procrastination I was not really wasting time. I love that you know. His way to procrastinate. Is just two. Toss off the first act of Wally. Right. What's most people to Jayme? But can I say though in writer? That's the thing that happens to. I'm sure that's happened to you before you're working on something and then suddenly there's the shiny new idea and you're like us better. You know because you've been sitting on the other thing for longtime exactly. Yeah Yeah it's very very common. Okay so he has. He has the first act outlined or I don't know how much work he did on it but he he sees this movie and he brings it to and this is like it's going to be like all stars like these names. It's like all the heroes of Pixar so he brings it to his his CO worker. Pete doctor who of course went on to do up and inside out. And you've seen them on the Academy Awards accepting trophies but He he went over to Pete and said. Hey Pete what. What do you think about this idea? And then I pitched it to doctor because he was the one that had thought he might turned into a movie way back earlier in the nineties and couldn't crack it and then he ended up cracking this idea about monsters under your bed which we all know about now and So I said Pete. Would you mind if I ran with this? And he goes no and I go. Why can't find any of the development work you did on it any of the drawings and he goes. Oh they're in a shoebox under my bed. I'm like what like that's how how fancy we are up here. And he went and looked at it and the next morning he called me and said you know what I fell in love with again. I'd like to do it and I said fuck well. Do you mind if I kind of produce it with you because I just would love to see it made. I don't really have to have ownership of it or anything I just really want to know. We're enough of a band up here that we're like fine. Can I just be a part of it? And he said sure and then he developed it for awhile and ran with the first act I had and still couldn't crack and in John. Basically just decided that he had been so burned by ants and bugs life being competition and he knew his good friend wedge was going to come up with this movie called robots that he didn't want to do the same to anybody else and so he kind of just killed it and you gotTa jump a couple of years later and I'm finishing Nemo. It's huge. Nobody saw that coming. I get an Oscar and I realize nobody can say no to me and you know what I'd like to do that little movie of the robot that nobody will allow us to do so. That's an interesting little tidbit in there. Which was he's mentioned John. So that's John lasseter. The head of Pixar was annoyed. That the movie Ans- came out. Which was I think dreamworks where I am right. A computer animated thing with Woody Allen playing an aunt and it came at the same time as a bug's life now of course no one really remember but a bug's life is a more minor classic in the Pixar Cannon. But you could see. He was annoyed and so he didn't WanNa make a robot movie right. But then we have this idea of capital and ones you win an Oscar. No one could say not. That remind me of Freakin. When he won for the French connection and no one could say no to him Give you the keys to the candy store. Yeah exactly that specifically so p doctor did some drawings. But they weren't exactly of the wally that we see in the movie. That kind of came as an inspiration to Andrew Stanton. Yeah very unlikely location. That was an epiphany. I was at a baseball game with my editor on. Nemo and I borrowed his binoculars and then I missed an entire inning just looking at the binoculars and started to make them sort of happy and mad and sad and I remember doing that as a kid with my dad's binoculars and I suddenly realized how you could get all this emotion out of a simple piece of Technical where beyond something like Alexa length. Because I knew I wanted something where you would anthropomorphized it. And that it wouldn't have to literally speak a language that you had to understand and And that just cracked it open for me. And then that's pretty much what I did. Put binoculars on top of a trash compactor. Amazing I have to say there were certain moments. That kind of I almost started to cry in this interview. Yeah Yeah I don't know why. Oscar is on top of a CR- recipes something about that image of him sitting at a baseball game and playing with binoculars and the character. Wally comes to life is so I don't know it just touches my inner child. I was sure it's just your creativity exactly a lot of people. Don't look at the world that way but for someone who is a animator like Andrew Stanton. He sees a lot of things that way. And as we tease before you know Andrew did a great job of teaching us how animator see the world in completely different way than regular people and he had a great way of putting it when I asked him how he came up with all the physical humor that while he does in the movie that is actually the easiest of all the stuff to do because it's innate in animators to physical is things and I don't know if Any of you know animators but they tend to be a type. They tend to be people that love to observe and there. I call them shy actors. They just naturally have an instinct for observing characteristics of what people do in say to operate in the world but they're shy actors. They're not going to go and repeat it themselves but they will do it withdrawing or with a character they've created so you stop us from looking at the world like that and thinking of that stuff so what I all. I really do created a playground that allowed a lot of great. Cheyenne actors to come up with stuff and I also took advantage of the fact that I wasn't dialogue dependent so I could put a lot of animators to work really early while I was still writing the story and just as long as I had the character. Sort of designed in a rough form Some of the gags you actually see while he do in the first act are tests that I had them do sort of or equivalent having actors do stuff in rehearsal and we and we saved the stuff in rehearsal and used it because it was so good and it helped me figure out who the character was while we were well. We were writing. So it's in a weird way. It's not that dissimilar to what you do with some writers and directors do with actors if they know they're cast is early and then the star wars of it is is pretty liberal. I mean I fell in love. I was the Ripe Age of eleven. When Star Wars came out now on all I'll ever wanted to do was revisit what it was like to be on tattooing and and believe it was all real every inch of it which you know also reveals a lot about. Why did John Carter the way I did but it was also a sense of I loved the world of alien and I wanted that visceral sort of real universe to exist as well. Just I guess I'm more G. rated level what about the decision to make his little sidekick like a literal cockroach not a cute cockroach but literally. I know I mean to me. I took it as a challenge. Like come on. We can make cute cockroach without the is without the aid of gloves. Come on and And you can. You can make almost anything cute if you really try hard enough. His name is Hal. It actually is and and it's a sort of hybrid of Hal Roach from two little rascal cartoons and hybrid of Hal. The computer so that was. That's very conscious. Why didn't know that you know that one? No I did. It makes sense. How the Roach Right? But I liked his little a reference to the gloves and the top hat or Jimmy Cricket or Mickey Mouse and any other room in that Disney make with allow fits but he was like no. I'M GONNA make my vermin look like vermin and still be cute bright. That's part of his genius. So why don't we explain a little bit of the plot so so? Wally is Is but you're right. He's the only robot on the planet. He's doing his job because that's always ever done which is taking a piles of garbage and making little cubes out of them. Right and HAL is little cockroach sidekick all right of course and every night. There's some kind of sandstorm or garbage storm. And so they have to go into this into the that he lives in. Yes abandoned spaceship. It's really quite sad. It's a really touching because he's so lovable. Part of what's so lovable about him is the way he sounds he goes well. I WANNA lean. It says his name like that to get it..

"This talk was recorded as a livestream. astrum conversation actually get really just. Don't be afraid next mass stanton today. We're joined by one of the ambassadors of Australian Rating Allah Matt Stanton. Hi thanks so much for having having me here so exciting to the Roman say. Hi Hi so not Stanton is the best selling author and Ella strata with over half sorry with more almost a million books I read the other day course sold and he is the CO creator of several bestselling picture books including the mega hits. There's a monster under my bed. Who Fats Birth Zillah and this? This is a ball in two thousand seventeen he launched. He's funny kid series which debuted as number one kid's book and there are now five books in the series so there's a lot of questions so let's just get strident shall we. The first question comes from in the roommate's from Oscar from Darling first public school and he's GonNa ask this question. How old were you when you discovered your love of Bena? Sorry Taylor thanks Oscar. What a great question? How how old was I when I discovered my love of being a storyteller well look? I've always loved books and I've always loved reading and I've loved creating stories stories but I particularly remember when I was eleven when I was eleven on. I tried to write the funniest story that I possibly could. We were writing clause at school and we had to write a story and I tried to write a really really funny story and so I wrote the funniest story that I could and I gave it to my teacher and I thought excellent okay. Great and my went home now. My teacher turned out quite like my story and Shea gave it to the principal which I didn't know and then the principal had this great idea. The principle was like. Why don't we get Matt? That really shy really short kid. Who wrote the story? Why don't we get him and we'll make him stand up in front of the entire school assembly and read his story to the whole school and I was like no? I don't WanNa do that. I'm so nervous but I did. That's what made me do so I stood up in front of the school and I read my funny story now when I was doing that. Something really interesting happened for me to read this story. Some of my friends started to the law at my funny story and then some more kids started off at my funny story. Some older kids some kids that I wasn't really friends with they started to laugh at my funny story. I know I thought hang on a minute. This is Kinda cool like this is pretty cool that something that just came out of my imagination. Something I just made up. He's making my friends off and so from then on icon. It became came a bit obsessed. I became a bit obsessed with the idea of making funny stories and Kurai Create Funny Stories to make people laugh. And that's what I do now. That's my whole job so a lot of time. You also illustrate books. When did you discover that you could draw as well as sure? Well look. I always loved during a drew. I drew a lot. I would draw. Draw all over my school books and I would draw cartoons and comics and things like that but to be honest. I didn't think I would be able to do anything with my during. I thought my drawing was just something fun and silly that I liked to do and so I realized that actually you can create stories from rising thing and from drawing those things go together really. Well when you WANNA create a funny story then I realized Oh this is kind of fun. I can create funny stories with my riding and with my joining. How who were you reading when you a kind of the age group of your writing now well who are your favorite authors says my favorite authors so Roald Dahl definitely who he likes? Roll down excellent. The role doll was amazing. I loved George's marvellous novelist medicine. I loved I loved the BEF J.. Then I think I was reading a lot of more Scotsman as well so misery got some two weeks with the Queen. Some really funny stuff that he was writing earlier on. I really enjoyed that and pull jennings lots of funny books but I also I loved the library. I spent a long time in my school library and I would try all sorts of different books. Great this question comes from the year falls at West Lawn Public School School and the question is who are what was your biggest inspiration to start writing and why I think probably early probably rolled down. I think probably the idea that so Georgia's marvellous medicine for example. That's an entire book about how to Kill Your Grandmother Right. That's crazy that you can write these crazy kind of ideas and come up with these amazing different sort of nuts stories that was kind of inspiring to me the fact that I could use my imagination your imagination that sort powerful and then you can use it to create anything and you can make up things adorning exist yet and I love that so I think that's probably one of the one of the most inspirational moments for me. This is another question from Scots College and year. Fives lives and sixes. Okay and the question is why did you decide to become a voice for children and not adults when you write. What a great question? So the truth is I. I wasn't really sure who I was going to write stories for. Originally I knew I wanted to rise stories but I didn't kind of know what stories I was is going to write straight away. I really funny stories but I wasn't sure if that's what I was going to do and I I wrote screenplays for awhile. I thought I might write movies and TV shows. I and I played around with writing books for adults and and and then I realized something really really special about kids books when when you are at school and you kind of your in this spot where you're deciding if you're someone who likes reading or not and then often you make that decision when you're at school you kind of go on someone who likes reading. I'm someone who hasn't really found a book that I like to read and often you make that decision and then you kind of decide. That's the sort of person that you are and so there are lots of grownups who say I don't like reading because at school I didn't find that they like to rate and so I realized realized by writing kids books by creating books for kids. I had this opportunity to really really affect someone's life in a really positive way because I believe in reading I I believe reading is really really important and so to be able to create books for kids. I've found to be really rewarding and special and when I get an email from a kid or from their mom or dad that says I I hated reading I didn't like rating but then I read one of your funny kid books and it was great and now I want to read another one now. I want to read another one. I have that kind of that tingling moment of like this is worth doing this is fun it can be really gift for life. Exactly we're gonNA move onto something that I'm pretty sure all the teachers out they're are GonNa really love. Okay what would you say of the common themes that you really pull apart in all of your books and why are these important not okay common themes in my books so I would say the most common theme in my books is fun. That's what I'm the most passionate about. I reckon not everything they found out you guys. They not pretty thin another one. Try Excellent it.

"What that would've been. Although there are many kids in our school. who were you know if they were freaking out on angel dust or other drugs would go to this? Private psychiatric facility was a few miles from my house. My family couldn't afford it up at some of my friends did end up. They're actually write another part. A really powerful part of the book to me to kind of going back on. That is later in the book. You reflect doc back from more of current time looking back at this and there's there's a melancholy to in looking back back on that but then there's also kind of a feeling of like. Wow you made it through. Yeah thank you know looking back was hard. Some of those things were hard to face up to but I really wanted to give voice to that teenage girl that I was and also give voiced two other teenage girls and to sort of show the heart. What's in the hearts and minds of a teenage girl? You know so that. Maybe there's something that we can all this useful for understanding those girls experiences so oh you know it was difficult to look back but at the same time and I did have to figure out. Well how do I deal with this shame. Do I forgive myself. But I learned a lot about the adolescent brain in a neurobiology and you know so yeah it was definitely Cathartic Chile back as well to finally let go of this through this book once I wrote the whole story and then you know spent years revising and editing hip but once I got that whole story out there was a release. There was a big it was out of me. And that's that and now I'm going to make it public so this is a public confession had but I did that hopes of helping other people understand right. Yeah I mean I think that's so such a big part of our journey right and to be able to share that to other people. I mean I think your book really captures that adolescence struggle when when we're a little bit lost and we don't know where to go I mean I it resonated with me so much because you know I was about the same age when I got help a seventeen you know and been drinking all the time and just you know pot can get into angel dust or anything like that. Luckily think auditing grew up in the opiate epidemic. That scares. There's me Hilson way you know I think if it was there I would have done it but it was a so but that feeling you really capture it and I I think for anybody out there who wants to understand that I think this. I think your book really really does that really well. I appreciate you writing it and I appreciate you putting yourself without there for other people to hear the story yet. I mean thank you for saying that I just that was my hope relate to mainly to sort of give some insight of possible possible into what was going on and there's the thing is there's a lot of people so I teach now at university so I'm just associate professor and I have all these colleagues and now I gave a reading there the the other night from the book and I in the middle of the reading. I just had to look up and say you all didn't know this about me. You know nobody no one knows your pass but the other thing that's been happening when I've been given even reading says that people have coming up to me and they've been emailing me and facebook messaging me and saying this is my story or this is my sister story or this happened opened in my family and thank you for sharing a lot of people carrying around those things. I mean we've gotten over it. We figured out how to get ourselves out of it or get the help we needed to get ourselves out of it. But it's still in us an so releasing it. I don't know maybe reading the book people feel they can release their own pass to own up to read and sort of say that happen and then I think it just makes us more understanding of everyone. Who's going through something if you realize that? So many people do even the people don't suspect had gone through something like this right. I know it really in a way as I read it. I was just finishing it yesterday. So I'm like still in the process of reading it but it reminded me of you know when in some of the darkest moments where we would. Just listen to like pink floyd the wall over or I would anyway over and over and over at melancholy of just that that angst and and you captured it but at the same time being able to see the way out and see that you're out of that you know and appreciate that so I think there's there's something unique that you had a simple experience of having this addiction in high school and the opioid crisis. Now we know expecting people in their twenties to forties. That's the big group. I'm not saying it's not happening in high school. It is 'cause I have students writing about it but when you're in that developmental stage and you're doing drugs I think it just adds a layer of confusion to the whole thing you don't even have the psychology of intellect yet to really figure out what's happening with yourself and you can kind of feel like you missed some of your development or your child once he kinda get out of it and you start to grow and nurture yourself and learn and grow and you kind of realize he missed a big chunk of it in a way. It's really true. That's I agree with that. I mean you know. The part of the reason is subtitled a delinquent girl that is the other meaning of delinquent which is late. Because if you don't spend those years of tenth grade eleventh grade nine four dollars L. learning how to interact with other people learning how to speak in class and raise your hand and be confident out of stink uncowed to be social. You know it just it gets delayed and so and then you know wasn't a train line of quitting so the book sort of truncates at a certain point way but did take me a few more years because to really pull back from drugs and drinking because you go to college and you're in a party atmosphere there was still lots of drugs around there was LSD acid. There was crystal meth came in cocaine. This is early eighties. Cocaine came in so you know I did end up falling into that a little bit. It wasn't like the daily habit I have advocacy P.. and wasn't like what I was saying. Probably kind of an addiction at least a very strong habit but I didn't stop all that for a couple more years probably I finally you know maybe when I was twenty my junior in college I finally was like I'm done with this. You know I'm done with this. I'm excited about the intellectual pursuits and Artistic Research Zyppah. Some people who are interesting to talk to and not just you know party that you found your way out of it you know Kinda grew your way out of it. I don't know burst similar. Yup I think row with part of it. I mean if you read these books that we know so much more now about some rain the adolescent brain. And now we know that your a brain isn't fully developed the decision making part of things until you're twenty four twenty five you know so you have teenage this unique thing happening where your hormones. The Image Alana things are causing you want excitement and risks and thrill. But you don't have the prefrontal CORTEX which is putting the brakes on a moral reasoning long-term consequences sequences of your actions not yet developed so as you are maturing. You know you're learning you start gaining those skills for for caring for yourself really right definitely definitely and marine. Just want to thank you for coming onto the podcast in talking about insuring your book. If anybody's out there listening. Listen I hope people are listening. What would you want to tell you? I would want to just say you know if they're teenagers listening or PPM. People feeling that sort of awkwardness confusion. Like only they are having having problems you know to reach out for help than for adults. I would say look around teenagers and they made me needing help they really May. And it's not going to be like just asking engineer. Help you have to stick with it. My teachers would say does she need help. And then you know I don't need help and then that's it may quit. You gotTA keep at it. Because that's what it takes I think so. So how is there's no shame in that at all asked for her but if we can help keep supporting people who are doing it. Thank you so much.

"And I'll see you there okay. We are onto episode so seventy eight and my guest. Today is Marine Stanton and she is the author of the memoir body leaping backwards words a memoir of a delinquent girlhood and I really enjoyed this interview. I was so looking forward to talking to marine after reading the book and I actually finished the day before I did the interview with Marine and was really blown away by and it spoke so eloquently you to my own experience of growing up and drug use and alcohol use and just that adolescent. Oh I I call it. Despair sadness angst. Angie cavs it so well on her buck and it's such a great message for young kids out there air today who might be struggling or two parents who want to understand them and maybe what they're going through so I was so happy to have her on the podcast and I think you're going to enjoy this interview as well so let's go ahead and start all right everybody. Welcome to the addicted mind podcast. I my guest. Today is Marine Stanton. And she's the author of the book bodily being backwards a memoir of delinquent girlhood. Good morning thank you for coming on the show so much for having me. I'm really honored to be on your show awesome so I have a lot of questions I have to say. I love your book. I just finished a yesterday and I have to say it resonated so much with me and my own journey and how you captured your. I don't know that feeling of that childhood was just astounding so my first question in is. How did you decide to write this? or how did this come to be thank you so much I really appreciate. You read the book and thanks for your generous comments about it. This is a book that I have been writing for literally forty years but I was always I was always avoiding actually taking it to the point of being published because there was shame there for me about not some of that I had done. And it's not just you know the drugs and the partying and the you know Angel Dust and PCP. But you know when you've lost yourself that way you're doing things you you wouldn't ordinarily do like steal niche vandalism and things like that so it was difficult to go back and say said. I knew that I would someday and in two thousand fourteen gene. When I started writing the Book My Dad had passed away? I didn't even make the connection. I just started writing the book. That fall thinking. Oh this is why I'm finally thinking. Oh let me work on this project. Because I wouldn't want him to feel bad and guilty and ashamed you know he did the best you code so but what I wanted to do with this book. I I wanted to tell the story that happened so long ago that I do think it resonates today because it's a teenager and there's certain that happened in teenagehood that even though the specifics are different than my teen in the nineteen seventies there are things that are really relevant folks like for example trying to hear who you are trying to figure out what your values as are moving away from your parents finding out what your passions are who your friends are figuring out your whole body and all that kind of stuff and so for me. That was a time of great anxiousness indices and sadness and confusion and I turned to drugs just just self medicate basically and I pretty much say that my tenth and Eleventh Grade Experiences Nice will all were not very useful just filled with with escaping. Really right and you know as I was reading the book and you're I want to say the character but it's not really care it's you but the girl in there you know how her life starts to use start to build this. I guess I just say this picture of this girl going through her childhood and then I guess the divorce happens and that was a profound moment woman for you and then it sounds like you started to drift away or disappear I I wanted to disappear. You know when I think about about what. The drug that I did was angel dust who was very prominent in the seventies and it still around today of course but it doesn't get a lot of attention in the OPIOID crisis but angel. Dozens of dissociation associative anesthetic. So what I wanted to do. I started having feelings of self doubt and lack of self confidence and even to the point of self loathing and so it dissociation association of anesthetic. Both not me and a dissociated me for myself. I didn't have to think of those things that teenagers happy about such being self conscious being anxious having social phobias of losing that confidence spiny away. And you know if you come from a family like mine which I had a good family and then my parents divorced and we got a lot of kids and so my mother was back at work on. My Dad wasn't around and so we were just on our own. Without that guidance it was just from each Namba sort of uncomfortableness list and sadness and pain even of teenagehood. That seemed to be the perfect truck was just around them right and sounds like you really captured it. Well that feeling that this is how I think a lot of kids start using drugs as a way to get away from that sadness the loneliness the unsure the isolation which leads to that kind of self loathing like you talked about new captured so well it definitely resonated with me. 'cause it's it's almost like in some ways like my childhood to accept I wasn't using. PCP using like alcohol and stuff like that but got help early and was able to kind of find my way through it. But what really resonated me with me was the feeling that you created and I wondered if you could kind of talk about that that emptiness or yeah you know because this happened in the seventies and I'm now in my fifties my late fifties. I had my diaries from the time. And when I from the time I was starting into drugs from time I before I did drugs and the time I started doing drugs and started really getting healing that despair I was when I read the diary straight through it over McCain me. I really felt once again like this fifteen year old girl. who was you know out in the parking? Lot of school self-conscious afraid not cool. There's a cool jazz over there. You you know feeling like my acne. My whatever you know all those things you know not going on as a teenager I really felt that again now presently so I was able to convey that I think on the page because I really had those diaries that were that was really recorded and I think that you know some kids citing joe better especially with guidance but but there's a lot of kids that I think start becoming drug users drinking or poly drug users during those fraught years between childhood and adulthood. I think it's it's like I think of a bridge crossing certain splurge treacherous terrain. All the things that you have to do in teenagehood. There's peer pressure as well and you know whatever ever. The circumstances are of the culture at the time. Now we have you know social media and smart smallest to escape with a teenager stu back then we had marijuana drinking drinking drinking ages. Eighteen was so easy to get hall. We would stand behind the liquor store and ask anybody to go by and they would. We never got turned down. We had one hundred percent so you know success rate so things were different so whatever the circumstances of the time if you're a team that's looking in any way having some kind of psychic pain and you're looking for something there's GonNa be something out there especially have no guidance especially on some as watching carefully whether it's school or cancer or parents or older siblings even right right what I love about your book. Is that it really captures that. And it's Kinda has this feeling of to me when I read it. It's kind of slowly building but really when I think about it as a teenager. That's only a couple of years. It happens when you look back. It happened so fast but at the time it seems so slow and long and I think that's why maybe people miss it a lot because you know. Naturally we expect teenagers to withdraw to start not talking to their parents and sharing a little moody and Weird and you know Mea crying screener shouting whatever you know a little dramatic we expect that but to associate that with weather doing drugs I think might be tricky for parents or at least it was back then but yes you know started. Drinking on weekends was a whole lot of kids. Marijuana came in and then oh next L.. His try this is angel dust.

I think it's thirty eight and one hundred how nice season. Yeah. Right. But it was how he got there that didn't. I mean, there was a stretch in the middle where he carried the team offensively bites reminiscent of a rod. Yeah. Really is. It's there were years with. A rod where he would carry the team the World Series year. He was amazing. We know that right in the postseason running had was great man. There were seasons era. God poed and you'd see them with the gloves with gun like you could see that it was really getting. I remember there was a game. I want to say it was nearly game against the Braves. Maybe I'm wrong. But I think it was against the Braves and he was mired in one of those horrific slumps where you just you felt bad for him. This is a rod, and he couldn't do a damn thing. And he had a game winning home run like a bat flip or toss for the ages. And it was like this big monkey was off his bat. But he took a beating when he struggled because you get paid what you get paid. You got to perform, and right wrong or indifferent fair unfair, Giancarlo Stanton. Makes a fortune. He's a former MVP and he had a nice season last year. Right. But he also is the mascot for the criticism of all Yankee fans of this team. Yeah. Which is home run or nothing too many strikeouts, not enough. Contact. You know that, that whole. Thing that everybody, complains about, and it's funny because, you know, in this stretch, where Stanton and judge haven't been around. It's not like the Yankee stopped hitting home runs. No, they hit a lot the old the biggest difference. I guess is DJ LeMay. You is a guy who's, who's a contact hitter guy like geo shell. I mean he's hit home runs. But you look at him as more of a contact hitter. So it's not like these guys aren't gleyber Torres went on a tear against the Orioles at home runs. Gary Sanchez a tone of home runs. It is record setting seasonal in baseball to Sherman, their shattering records all over the place. But it's not like the Yankees are at like, you know, suicide squeeze in hit and runs and bloop single on their way to these wins when these guys have been out. You're just you're getting performances from unexpected sources, I guess, is probably the best way to, you know, guys that you thought would contribute, but not lead. I mean you've got guys doing things this year every everybody. They've pretty much trotted out into a starting lineup has done something positive and has control. Wanted in some way. So it's just a different when you lose his many guys, the Yankees lost. They become the little Yankees that could. And when they do, it's a nice story. And then all of a sudden the stars come back now, it's, it's kind of, like I think Joe and Evan were saying this yesterday. I think driving home. They said the Yankee seasons. Nice. Oh, foreign this goes to the point where we've always talked about, what do you say about them? They're expected to be in the playoffs, and it's like they're only really a story if they're losing. Yeah. Because they're supposed to win a winning this division is going to be very, very important. And it's not like they jumped out to a big lead, for sure. But don't you have the sense at least I do, they're going to be there somehow someway and the season starts when the season ends. Yeah, yes. Of course. And it's always that way with the Yankees. However, I mean, the last couple of years, they have not won the division the division. They play in that wildcard game. But they've also still been there. Yeah. They've won the wildcard game. And I've gotten to the DS in the AFC a couple of years ago. And of course. Fluid into the Red Sox in the AL DS last year. So winning this division, I think is extremely important for them. So there's a little bit more during this regular season. But I think there's a chance that they hit nine straight home runs. Some point during the why the hell of nights. Everybody through the line. Of course. I'm not serious. But yeah, I mean when all these guys are back. It's that's going to be fun because we haven't seen it yet. Now, then in Cornell Yonne on top of it. It's going to be even better. So this is going to be a crazy crazy summer for them. Just a matter of who they trade for two that rotation. Let's go to Mike in Hoboken. What's going on Mike? Jerry. What is going? What's up Mike knocking? I just want to say one thing, real quick, Jean Carlos thin right now are going to lose their minds. Tonight we've been hearing for GIO or shelhah for months. Nobody knew who he was three months ago. And you're telling me the former MVP the guy who got arms the of tires is not gonna walk up that Ben people are gonna lose their mind. You aren't they are. Yeah. No way going to be there. And I'm telling you, I will be cheering, I would imagine everybody else will now strikes out the Technet. To they are going to rock the stadium for this guy. He's been out and obviously judge he come back all different story. I mean, I think I think Phil though, that he's going to go Asian because you know what? It's his time now he's been out for a while. We've been having two sets without extra bat like that. People are gonna pre she it back. They're gonna go nuts. Yeah. Mike. I, I hope so. And if you're going to the game, you're big Yankee fan, you should give him a big standing ovation. Get him off to a nice positive start. I o b it's both five hundred fifty feet might be capable of it. Yeah, I just I don't see I mean I think it's going to be underwhelming. I, I don't think there's going to be boos. When he comes back, obviously not going to be clam mild, clapping. It's just it's going to be underwhelming. Like if he was a guy who last year. Hit sixty one home runs carried them through the season and had this monster year and they were struggling a little bit right now. Then he comes back I could see a rousing standing ovation this teams in first place. And they have missed them. Mm. Yeah. If our current Aaron judge comes back on the homestand, then that's you're gonna see absolutely Shen that different situation. I mean it's your rights classic. Geeta A rod all over again. It is, is just it's the same guy essentially one's homegrown. The other one isn't one. You feel about in the clutch the other one not this is a great comparison because you had, you know, jeeter the Yankee against a-rod brought, and they played right next to each other on the infield. You got judge the Yankee Stanton brought, and they play the next to each other. But in the outfield is interesting, right? And they're both. It's similar players in the sense that, you know, big home runs. Big brooding guys. Right. I mean it's just it's, it's a it's a redo of that insurance, nothing. Like jeeter said nothing, right? It's pretty good. Let's go to Lenny in Randolph. What's going on? Lenny. We doing. I wonder if you saw that plane. Night on time were they had four out. Yes. Not your. Why couldn't he couldn't hit the ball struck out twice leading up to that? And they didn't have that shift on them. And then they had the shift on him and his his third at the head earlier the game they had enormous shift three infielders on the left side and the first baseman probably twenty five feet offers base. But the one in the seven I think it was the seventh inning where they had the high shot from above, and you've got three infielders and I knew could only see three outfielders in the camera shot, I was wondering if they were playing with eight. String softball. Short fielder. Yeah. We are. We are definitely used to that whole thing. Yeah. It's a strange one. It's and I don't know why that point in the game because Torino's was still pitching at that point. Right. So it's. I don't think so he wasn't. No. I don't think so. Okay. All right. So that's probably why then that's probably why they, they changed it because Torino's modem down first couple of times up, and they had the normal shift on the why the hell with a change at that point. I think at that point. Okay. I think it's to Brian and point pleasant New Jersey. What's going on, Brian? Yeah, he'll guys. Hello, listen. I earlier you were talking about maybe and how, you know, he's gonna get sent down can't get sent down because he's got no option. So the FAM or they gotta train them, right? So I mean, if you do send them down something's gonna pick them up, which means I think our shell. It's gotta be the guy that goes down. Yeah. I mean do you really see that happening? I mean out of these, here's the difference is you're getting outfielders back and you just added, another D H guy in, in space, though, incur Nacional saying, yeah, I mean, I don't know if he will. But. Tell you what, though as he's speaking, and you're talking, it does make sense standpoint of if you've got DD back healthy. Now, you got LeMay Hugh, you got Torres. You got Voight. You got Encarnacion makes ace it does. Make sense, does our shell. I don't know if he's got up Sion's either though. I think that you're gonna lose one of those guys for good. So die means. And if it comes down to that, I would take my chances with Cameron maiden really Cameron may, I would think, over the course of his career, to have to look at the numbers I think it's been a better pro GIO. Or shelhah has been amazing over the last year. I grant you that I understand that he's been a surprise. But prior to this runs beyond been on. I don't think he's been much of a pro, you know camera may actually had a career. Yeah, I just I, I don't know. He's been in a league for years, and, you know, but it's now it's time, you know, like you gotta, you know, you know, go to one of the other and to me for shelhah can spill if he still has options, she got to send them down, you know, trying to confirm it there, Bryan. But I don't think that either one of I think both of them are out of the options and that's why you saw the Frazier, then talk men and that's why they've sort of waited with these two guys and a and a tough decision as to be made. And I think I don't even think it's an option. No pun intended to, to DFA or Trey GIO or shall I think what is going to come down to is. It's gonna come down to either Mabon gets DFA aid, or they carry twelve pitchers instead of thirteen I don't think they love that option. No. And that thing they don't do that. It's generally thirteen pitchers. Right. I mean, I just think this is one of those things where it's like, hey, man. We appreciate it. But we don't have any room for you. Anymore. Unfortunately, when when Brian Cashman brought him in this, this was a possibility. I don't think you could completely change the plant guys barely gonna play..

"Because he's terrible the start of every season. All right. So just stop talking. How about that? Stop talking. It's not like he actually helped the Marlin situation before. Oh, yeah. How many winning seasons? Did we have with Giancarlo Stanton? I think it was zero Giancarlo Stanton. Such a winner such a leader get the hell out of here. How about good about little baby stadium in New York and hit eight hundred home runs? All right. Yeah. Baby stadium. That place is a joke. You could I could hit it out to right field opposite field with the way that stadium is constructed. What a joke. He should've broke the home run record last season. Why didn't he because he's a bust overpaid overrated? Homerun rush. Homerun record or bus when he was going for the home run record down here. He no he wasn't going to get to seventy whatever it is seventy two seventy three whatever the number is now. So he came out with that. It was a heavy play. My record is sixty two. I'm okay, how about get to sixty. How about that fifty nine? What a joke you had a week to get three extra home runs. You couldn't do it. They had those things. I'm never going to even know what those things were at season tickets. I was going to all those games. I could resell those tickets and made some money, and I didn't because I wanted to see you do something that you couldn't do break this fictitious home in record that you're going by. It's not even the real record. And the Marlins hung these things from the roof in the outfield that year, and I was trying to figure out what they were. And I'm assuming they were going to do something when you got to sixty and we never figured out what they were gonna ask them. What those things were because there was stuff hanging from the ceiling on the inside of of the stadium, and they were going to do something to celebrate something. And I couldn't even figure out what they were. They were going to do something to celebrate telling you there were like fireworks confetti or something that they were gonna shoot off when he did something memorable. And of course, he didn't do anything memorable classic Stanton. So. You were never this kind of fired up Giancarlo Stanton. At least I don't REM I know that his his slumps would frustrate you a little bit. But I wasn't this fired up driving in today. I don't know what you guys did to me, but he's agitating shots. Unnecessary shots. Seven eight six four five six three seven. If you want to get Giancarlo Stanton. A piece of your money is a little odd that Loria and Samson they had this reputation of irking some players even stained didn't get along. He seems an admitted that there was like one a moment of friction between the two, but jeeter sort of picked up right there with some players just being p owed atom JT. These are young players JT for JT to have some sort of egos. Kind of weird that JT forced his way out of here. Yellow doesn't like staying doesn't like these are two of the three are MVP's. One of them is an all-star Derrick jeeter one of the class. He has players in the game for. Him to already start having these relationships with players and it being contentious helm, I suppose to extend him the benefit of the doubt for later on if he's already agitating everybody. I think it's different when you like he didn't have relationships with these guys he's coming in fresh. So like, we had all these relationships we like roommates or yelich, STAN. And he's just like coming in. This place is a mess. I gotta do my thing. I can just imagine him in those meetings. Being like, look, this is impersonal this business. You know, no BS, you're probably going to get trade. Like, I can just imagine him being honest with these guys. And that's why they're like that's why they're all you heard yell at each other. Like, I want out there reports low key that yelich reached out to the Marlins last season. Midseason and apologize. Really? How that whole thing went down. Oh who reported that? I don't remember good. Look like, they're obviously we understand why they're frustrated, but it's never a good look when you're like I got contract, but I wanna also has to do some PR spin speaking of PR spin..

"Different classes of hitters have been affected in different ways and i i think that's because there is sort of a fly ball sweet spot where when you hit the ball a certain distance it becomes disproportionately more likely to turn into home just because of where the outfield fences are in so you've seen guys i would have said like stanton who can hit the ball out of any ballpark by a mile not benefit as much from the ball changing because they were already reaching that sweet spot whereas freddie galves was not reaching that's exactly the inro army that set the guy who who you tudor yeah and so i i thought that actually did make sense but cheer comes stanton trysts opening up a massive lead over any other hitter in baseball so it's been a lot of fun to watch and so has game of thrones dardar it all right let's get to our guest in first we will bring in chris stewart so back in two thousand thirteen i remember going into the yankees clubhouse i was working on a story about catcher framing as i often an and i talked to someone who has systematically excelled at that skill who was at that time the yankees catcher chris stewart and i noticed that he was reading something in the clubhouse as it seems like he always is and it was a song of ice and fire i believe it was the third book may be a storm of swords i can't remember for sure but we talked a bit about that at the time and then i also talk to chris the following year i went to the pirates clubhouse where he is catching and he was also reading something at the time and he is still with pirates he is their backup catcher and he has.
