At Least Obama Accepted Responsibility for His Failings. Biden? Not So Much

"I saw a clip of Barack Obama when president Obama was faced with the extraordinary Republican gains after ObamaCare was shoved down our throats. He took responsibility. I mean, he did. Now, he was he dodged it, and he kind of danced around it, but they played the clip last night. I'd love to see if we can find it Derek. Be a good clip to play to remind you of the stark difference between Obama and Biden. And understand, you remember how long it took Obama to even campaign for Biden? Oh, we have that clip? Oh, great. Play it. I'm sorry to know we had it. Listen to this. Over the last two years, we've made progress. But clearly, too many Americans haven't felt that progress yet. And they told us that yesterday. And as president, I take responsibility for that. I mean, that's an adult reaction. That's not Biden's way. Biden tend to Biden and take responsibility for anything. Biden yesterday was arguing with Peter douchey about the 450,000 per illegal that the Justice Department is working on for the illegals and Biden called it garbage. He wanted to defend that. He wanted to argue that this garbage stuff, you guys are putting out there. In his mind, maybe they didn't brief him. And he didn't know. I mean, he's so out of touch and the country knows it.

What Happened When Eric 'Came Out' as a Trump Supporter

"Because when I wrote the bonhoeffer book, so many people came to love me who then once I came out of the closet as believing Trump was better than Hillary Clinton as a candidate is pretty crazy stuff. When I came out on that, these people thought, I get emails now a little bit less often, but I was getting emails like almost every day. Have you lost your mind? Didn't you read your own bonhoff for book? Don't you see, you know, effectively that Hitler, I mean, that's a Trump is Hitler two. Don't you get it? He's an authoritarian monster. You know, and I realized that it's almost funny because it's precisely the opposite. It's the left that has taken on the mantle of Hitler. Has anybody referred to Hitler as having a mantle before? The biblical, it's an anti mantle sure. But the point is the point is that the parallels are stark. But even a number of years ago, even I don't know, 7 years ago, 8 years ago, people would say, how did this happen in Nazi Germany? How did that happen? And I said, it happened exactly like it's happening here now. That's how it happened. So the idea that I mean, of course, if you have a racist view of Germans, it's very easy to say how it happened. The Germans are uniquely evil. But if you believe that you're as bad as the Germans who hated the Jews as being uniquely evil, we all know, as Dennis just said that it's not a racial issue. It's a human issue. And we don't know why God allows it to go as it does through history. You know, if I were God, I don't think I would have let the Holocaust happen, but I'm not

"Kill mongers. What israel named. Air stairs. Eric stevens. I think that his primary goal his northstar throughout this entire episode is the same as it is in in black panther and black panther. He wants to get back to a conduct and takeover. Okay and so he is. He is singularly focused on doing whatever he can to make that happen. And he'll lie and cheat and steal deceive and do whatever he has to do. In order to position himself with that opportunity and so if that means moving up within stark industries in order to accomplish his plan. That's what he's going to do. He's really brilliant. You gotta remember. He's an mit. Mit grad grad. In this and in both and and he there's something really dangerous about a genius with a grudge and exactly what we see. Yeah so you don't think he saved. Tony drew with this plan. In mind you think he kind of formulated it as he was going i do. I think he sees an opportunity for with in the desert when he finds out the ten rings are going to attack. Tony tony of stark industries. And he's like all right. Let's leverage this moment to get closer to my plans. And that's what he's doing. And then why do you think. Tony was so trusting of eric so quickly like it took no time for him to give to give eric these high high level. You gotta think he trusted by stan. So easily and trade him. Staying staying stain s. T. a. n. b. nate. He grew up with overdose right. Yeah i get that. But i think that he hasn't had anybody that he hasn't had to not trust if that makes sense. It's hard not to trust somebody to save. Your life is also true. yes yeah interesting So when kill mauger is chatting with tony in the garage right. He mentioned that his dad was killed by gang violence. Right and this eric's first big ally of this episode which we'll talk about a minute because in black panther. He says his dad was killed by panther clogged drains. This big emotional moment so he ends up lying in this about it to tell you so. Then we learn that. Eric was a brilliant. Mit graduate and highly decorated war hero by most standards. He would be considered a pretty good person but we see throughout the so that he has no problems lying to get what he wants lying to cover up. Even the of tony's best friend that he killed them what do you. What do you think made erin so evil that amounted to be so much good if he were turned in the right direction. It's the same reason in the first movie. It's it's this obsession this this with revenge this this idea that he's been wronged which you know. He's a sympathetic character. As a child with what happens in the beginning of the black panther movie and his character and everything he's in a he's he's living a tough situation he so he's got a worldview that that is is one of revenge it's one of You know that deals with you. Know some racial oppression. Abc's he's he's he's he feels like the only solution to these issues is strength and power versus what happens. You know with black panther and it's a very different approach whereas ends up getting them but do you think name it's a lot of i think that it's the same reason we see and black panther. He just he's a bad guy. His father was killed and he hasn't a one goal in his life is to get vengeance on macondo..

Our current contemporary issues may be an look at things more abstractly it posits that there are big corporations corporate monopolies that pretty much run the economy and pretty much run the world sort of corporate government and that flows from this notion that these companies can set their terms of service however they want so if you want housing you have to go to the housing company and you have to sign their terms of service. If you want food you have to go to the food company and you have to sign their terms of service that of course you see all your power to these companies now under sure.

Mary was invited to a national. Science foundation. committee created to improve the nation's performance in the field of science in a series of tests designed to figure out what blocked strong students from continuing into careers in science. Mary saw a big problem of all of the sixteen to nineteen year olds who scored in the top ten percent on aptitude tests and then did not go onto college. Ninety eight percent were women. The time women had serious. Barriers to access college education endowments for women's colleges were much lower than those of their male counterparts. Perhaps most importantly curriculum requirements didn't accommodate the different societal expectations for women. For example many universities made it nearly impossible for students to attend part time as a result women who had to care for children during the day at home could not attend mary. It her mission to redesign the education system to accommodate and encourage women to study. She got her first chance at serious reform. When in nineteen sixty she became president of radcliffe college the undergraduate women's college at harvard university there. She saw the stark differences between the ways.

I really don't have a whole lot plan. I'm going to be kind of winging it. That's a sneak behind the curtain for him. Yeah i'm the old man. This is my podcast. So i call it the old man's podcast young people. This is not a podcast for old people. I guess kind of is you see as an old man. I've lived a long long life. And i'm not going anywhere. So kenny ideas. Don't get excited. Just say live. Long life been down this road few times. I like to share those adventures with other people. Like me or people right behind me. We can laugh and joke about some of the things we've seen and how the world's changed but for you young folks. This podcast has a lot of value because of you ever heard the saying if i only knew then what i know now. You're never going to say that in your twenties that's pertinent saying to you and your life. Now it's not going to be until you're in your forties fifties or even more that you're gonna think back to when you were kid the agent you are now and wished you'd have done things differently or just done things. She didn't do based on your life. Experience decades down the road now. I don't want that to happen to you. So that's why one of the reasons why i'm doing this podcast to help. Young people can get the direction that they need now. Listen i know. You're not gonna listen stupid old people when i was your age. I didn't want to listen to stupid old people. Either but i always try to make it entertaining and just kind of thought provoking. Think about this think about doing that. Think about how this could affect your life things. Like that and the stories that i tell may be applicable to you at this point they certainly will be at some point. You is so. That's why called the old man's podcast stunned by old man. But by all means certainly is not for old people young people. You're welcome we're glad to have you here. So what am i going to talk about this week. Well the olympics are finishing up so that would make sense talk about the olympics. Problem is already have like a bunch of podcast back. I did a great sporting moments in olympics. Now it's back on my mind so we're going to do a best of series and i'm going to plug the former topic back in again. See what you think about the best moments. I've experienced i've seen in the olympics. This has been a great olympics. It's a shame it's going down. The wait is that nobody's there a friend of mine. His son is playing on the basketball team. Talking about it today. It just takes something out of it where you're not audiences at their your fans and your family can't share this experience with you. They're playing and they're gonna get their medals in their accolades experienced. But it's i don't know if tarnishes the right word but it's certainly not going to be a great experience olympics have always been but we're having the olympics so i wanna talk about that.

"It's not something that you have to work in and find excuses for sci-fi weston's these impotent killer. This is john. Russia that seems to really work. Why do you think it works some well. I mean what is it about these two separate genres that were l. I think we love the idea of kind of i well. It's too fast to the sort of the loan Kind of lone gunman northern bounty hunter ronin kinda wondering wondering through literal space encountering these communities or conflicts and then moving on kind of sometimes there are catalysts. Sometimes they just observe all tentatively. You have a you know. A very popular aspect of a lot of space opera which is found family which is a group of these wanderers. Find themselves as the crew Which we see in so things like cowboy bebop and five light and extent kind of end up wandering together. So i think there's an element of it's the sort of the trap and the the dream of freedom in a sense of being presented with space infinite space of spiders like space itself is is a bit like being lost in the desert in present you with infinite possibility but also potentially could just kill you if you're prepared to under-equipped to deal with it so i think there's a lot of that sort of the attraction of the unknown and roaming about encountering adventure. I wonder also if there's something about the other because you have that very un-imaginative sorta representation of aliens as you know the kind of the american indians or the be aborigines in australia. When you look at something like click coleman's taryn nullius. You've got an example of how the settlers came to australia. Will they did to the aborigines. And what maybe aliens would do if they came to earth and how they treat us and i think is a very similar thing about how you know we go out in search of.

"Possibly more instances where you have say the desert's necessarily as kind of the background atmosphere. But you still do have whenever they going to like. Although small villages will all things where they are struggling for resources in for to to live and exist on kind of harsh environments or whatever they might still be they might be green actually but then knocks the still not very civilized but they've been very progress technologically. Which is actually. Okay this is gonna. I'm going to blend into another point here. Because one thing that i've seen with sci-fi westens in particular is how you have this kind of completely bizarre mix of high technology with a society. That is really quite futile. Living off the land. A doesn't have a lot of medicine and all this kind of stuff on yet like their war technology. Is you know incredible. All you know at some point that there just seems to be massive inequality in terms of the technology and advancements they have and yet the society is still feels like it could really be the wild west now. I knew that i knew it. And i knew someone was going to say while they've got spaceships. Why don't they have phones. And i would have to answer it and it's interesting it's sort of. It's the type of world building. the i mean. I'm interested in it. But it's less important to me than the characterizes within setting and in in the world. The i was writing. You do obviously have space travel and and you have ships and but in my kind of view of things it's just developed in in different ways and resources also sparse and attack is such prized. That people are they resort to lo fi solutions. Basically which are the couple together or that out of date or tech does exist somewhere in the universe it just doesn't exist here And fern spoil things. Sometimes if people can communicate immediately Sometimes thirties the story. Right rectal sire. I mean there's obviously taken a fair amount of artistic license but hopefully for the rita. It's kind of it's less about the minutiae of The technology in the world and more about what the characters face in that setting. Now i do think though sometimes we can get a bit book down in In details like that as somebody who has never written science fiction. I feel like it would be the bane of resistance having to decide what to put in and what to leave out because as you say rightly say having a mobile phone to communicate with someone instantly is if a colt to programmatic narrative tension. Well you sign of that but you know stocks also mentioned as lebron and the whole kind of anuj cycle of books is based on the idea that they've invented instantaneous communication across the galaxy so it can work but then obviously that sir that must be a kind of central facet of of the building in which case.

"Embedded in the kind of jean-marie history is hard to kind of pull it out and imagine kind of wha what it might be like from other other perspective so if it wasn't wasn't there and kind of dystopia reimagined there's Keep talking talking about films. Sorry about that as an indonesian film called molina the murderer in four acts by director cooed. moody cer- certain monopoly in indonesia and set weston certain interestingly asset on very stark and dusty island but another it does sort of incorporate more sort of indonesian values in the characters of the setting is still still kind of similar so i i think it's part of the language of it sometimes of the genre. Yeah that's a feeds into this dystopia element of the western. So embedded in there. So we're talking about how the the desert's in these are bleak places in settings really do give us that set dressing and kind of make us feel like we're in weston and when you look at harm solo is a character people say well. He is a very typical gunslinger. A trope from the western and we can recognize him because we see him. I on tattooing. Which is a desert planet. And it's all in messiah sleigh this this space is on the edge and it's all very much the whole set dressing of it is a western but if we met hansel low on the ice planet hof would we have seen him as a gunslinger. I don't know it is even his custody in isn't it the he's dressed. Yeah and i think the the first star wars in particular has a law in common with With western candy in the way it's structured and partaking moss eisley. I mean come on. It's a saloon that it is especially on the county and the cantina and it's interesting. It's like those hollywood shortcuts like you're saying towards telling us what kind of character he is and i haven't watched the mandalorian but i don't know if that's the same there anyone if any of you've watched it i have what should of course have installed walls and petra pascal.

"It's not situation of sort of abundance which in in the frontier setting it's kind of emptiness in abundance which alone allow This kind of you more utopian frontier to be inhabited and it sort of only brought up towards the end of the book. It was a really interesting element. I think of the narrative Weston's the setting of the desert and that kind of the the bleak arad's rolling tumbleweeds. Is that an essential part of the western. Because that i feel like a lot of modern weston's or or even the ones that we call sci-fi weston's it's it's always because they have that aspect to it. They have that power of a also lack of resources. You know that people are fighting over resources that trying to start something where there isn't that abundance main is. Is that a necessary element for it to be a west necessary. So it's interesting. This is almost like a set dressing. isn't it of Of the genre. And i think something you said there about the lack of resources on people sort of having to to struggle in that environment is quite interesting because often where there's no law as well i think. Part of what makes that you. The western setting the frontier setting will the space space western setting. It is is kind of people coming face to face with how they behave when there is no law when no one's gonna come along and punish you or make you answer for what you've done It's just you and your conscience. And i think that is quite integral to of harshness of the setting of in terms of pushing people potentially to limit where they have to make those decisions the decisions that they would never ever have to make in a sort of town or city or a comfortable environment. I was thinking about what megan said in the idea of not having a lot of resources not having much law within the setting and it makes me wonder if dystopia is something that non-american people use as sort of replacements for western. If you think about english history. It's not really any time. We've had anything like that where we fought resources. I'm had no lower. We have been in different ways being very soon feudal system. It seems to me that western very much in bodies of an american spirit. I wonder if we tend to sort of put that on to stay few when you vote more english writer. Because that's the best way we can think of having our own kind of countryside in the rim regions mimicking those same elements light medium saying of the lack of resources. That's really interesting in terms of how. How the westerns. Because obviously with the western genre there's always been back and forth between of samurai films feeding into western feeding back into samurai films. And so it. Some sometimes the western seems sort of.

"And you'll be able to talk about that with great clarity in. And i will but i i don't know we have a fascination with dystopia don't we i'm possibly again. It's what people have always said about science fiction. You know. it doesn't tell you what's going to happen tells you what's happening now in the problems that we're facing now so maybe that's part of this fascination with a kind of dystopia m- worlds. It's kind of some of the ideas that we're faced with at the present moment And seeing them play out and seeing ways out of them or people people living their lives despite their surroundings rather the being fined by the he think gender is somehow incompatible with dystopia worlds. I have. I have no idea. I really don't it. Depends on the stop here. I suppose in my own work. I don't know i wouldn't call. I mean is she. My what might be a dystopia in some senses. I'd say but it's not one predicated on gender inequality Per se dystopia and dystopia in in other in other ways sort of more economic and societal ways sort of looking at kind of the colonialist attitude towards colonizing new planets on gender inequality doesn't particularly feature not probably more from necessity because in a place. Where like like mr saying web people needed. Were bodies needed. Soldiers needed a gender sort of irrelevant in the world. I was writing anyway. Use the assets that you have. Yeah the exactly. There's no You know in a position of privilege to be able to say a women have to do this in manhattan exactly especially. Those ideas have become archaic at some point in the past as well which in my world i sort of assumed that they had conversely what about utopian societies. I kind of feel like we don't see as much of them. No i mean the times we're living in it's Quite hard sometimes to imagine them. I was thinking about this. The other day with us. Sheila lebron's dispossessed which is better than influence on on me. As well on on on this book with the idea of the planet being assertive anarchist utopia and it sort of being a frontier in its own way as developing Idea off a place in our world which is then thrown into very sharp contrast when it struck sgt post capitalist society twin twin world. And that's probably one of the more interesting utopias. The i've read because it's not presented as i mean it's critical of societies but it's not presented as the the one answer how it's kind of a thought experiment you think. It's possible have utopian society built on the idea frontier because when you think batch frontier he always think about hardship from people falling into naturally sort of gender specific roles like the women's at home in the kids and the guys out neither do the hunting. The outlaws all the tending of the fields. I kind of feel like it's so far away. From what a lotta people. They feel is generally agenda quality. The it couldn't form the basis for utopian society. because it's just. It's just a radically different. Does that make sense. Yeah i mean one place of come across and it was an interesting one was an tammy ohs daydream of tara to Which is you know. A group of young people heading towards A potential new basically and on that was interesting because they sort of that they were heading towards his very fertile and this is empty of people but it has everything that they'll need So i guess it's thought.

"The way he wrote hose that he basically envisaged the character who has this big box story who you know who's just ended up at this point as the leader of this town who's trying to sort of hold it together. I think that's a really interesting example overcame dystopia and post apocalyptic landscape which incredibly harsh but still has a woman in a position of power or a non subservient role. But i think you said something very important. There is that she's glamorous and not necessarily a traditionally courts feminine. A lot of the women that you do end up seeing i think. Probably like hilary swank in that film. You're discussing but you know it becomes are hard that they lose. What makes them women. You know all that you know as you say you talked about as being a or whatever. It's then no longer allowed to be again. I feel like. I wanna put equity around anything but sof health and you know that kind of it's like if you're at ole anything to do with the kind of traditional ideas of femininity. You'd have that and still be strong. You can't have that on. Be tough enough to survive in the frontier. You end up. Having to be deti in grubby in an masculine in so many ways women can be tough and still be feminine. I don't understand why they think that that can't exist. And i know that that's not something that we just see in westerns. All sifi weston's but it's irritating to say the least ma. It goes the other way. Well though i think and this is just example of like toxic patriarchal values while women don't allow to be women in in the tough environment of the west. Same thing with men. I think the men are moved into the out of the tough environment. They lose that toughness and it's ridiculous. They d stereotypes so strong that they kind of carry their own traits with them wherever they go they can't they can't be displaced..

"First western hit cinemas in one thousand nine hundred three with the great train robbery but it is the fifties and sixties. Remember most when we reminisce on this genre while. There's a lot to love. Women often got a raw deal if they happened to appear at all. Many modern weston's have done little to critically engage with the heritage though. Some progress is being made but what about genre mashups science fiction weston's have grown in popularity from traditional trips like the gunslinger appearing in stalls to all out mixture vehicles like firefly a sifi weston's giving us a frontier friendly to women. What about other minorities in this episode. We are joined by author. Stockholm whose latest novel tender is a sci-fi weston with a queen on society and women feature a front and center stock.

"A massive fan of darwin. Cook thanks to things. Like batman e go and the new frontier his work on batman beyond and i love his stuff and then running parallel that in high school. I read all the parker novels up till deadly edge. I actually like sputtered out on deadly edge in college. I have not gone back to the parker novels. And i keep meaning to but i've read the first two hundred. Well that's not right. It's probably like the first forty five pages. I've read the first forty five pages of a deadly edge three times and for whatever reason. I just can't break that barrier like the the book does does not work for me but i'm i'm maybe i'm gonna make a promise right here. I'm going to do it. And i'm gonna finish the rest of the series. 'cause i really wanna get to put your mood holding you to it. All right okay. Good so i love both of these things then this miracle happened. We're darn cook announced that he was going to adapt parker and the hunter that was like i didn't two great tastes that taste great together like this is like my racist peanut butter cup and i was so excited and the original plan for darwin was. He was going to adapt every single parker novel but then that quickly changed when he considered adapting demand with a getaway facings like. I don't really wanna do that whole book. Because there's not really much there for me at least The way. I see it although i love the man with the getaway face and so under the re read this is probably the fourth or fifth time. I've read the hunter. And i had never read sleigh ground because i did not wanna read slate ground because the moment i read sleigh ground. I was done with darwin cook because it was the last work of darwin cooks that i had not experienced. And i've done that. And i loved it but i'm also sad about it so you original question was what it was it like on the re read and for me having read this at least i recently reread his jones. Heck's issue fifty that he did some time ago and we read the wolverine dupe series. You have not read those two issues. They are so cute. What's fascinating to me is when you look at those. Maybe not ex. But when you look at duke or when you look at justice league new frontier which is my favorite work of his like. They're so bright and optimistic and hopeful. And then you see other personality of darwin cook as expressed through richard star in the parker books. And it's not like these are like despairing books but they are mean books and it's satisfying like. I love the meanness of it and i just think depending on what your mood is. Parker will be your favorite darwin cook piece of art one day and then new frontier will be your favorite piece of art. The next day he has such a command over the human emotional spectra while still staying in his very specific styles daljit styles. Yes because parker and new frontier. They have a foot. Or an i in the past and in a very specific frame of time you know like the forties through the sixties To me like when you said two great tastes that taste great together. The parker he is the the silky smooth beautiful chocolate but the parker side is so salty in its peanut butter. Salt the cook the cook side. The parker jarwin cook plus richard stark Shark is so salty yes and to me. I had tried to read the parker novels. And i could not stand being inside parker's head. I did not like it was uncomfortable for me. It was gross. It was hard for me to really get any momentum reading it because my impulse to set it down was so strong but when you add. Darwin cooks art to it. It makes it more enticing to me and then i do get to enjoy the parts of parker that i really enjoy all of the characters around him how alien they are to parker. I remember the scene with him. In handy mccoy gary mackay and is like hey. I'll do that job for you for free like we have. Yeah we have this history and parker going. Like i don't know about this guy he's getting sof like i love those little moments where you get past the ugliness to really really realize how alien parker is and on rereading it. You focus on the craft that is involved and clearly. How in love cook is with stark's writing like if unlike if we open the first page of the hunter right or maybe not the first page after new york city nine hundred sixty two and then it goes book one and then we have this scene of parker on the bridge and the cars driving by and that we get the first sentence of the novel which is when a fresh faced guy in a chevy offered him a lift. Parker told him to add in the comic. It says dash dash and then we get a word balloon. Go to hell and so. That's not an dialogue. That's not in quotes in the book in the richest stark down west like book but cook transforms that any really takes one sentence and he recreates that sentence in a way that only this form could it is so evocative of the texts looking at the images. It's in the look passion. For the book rings the text back to the forefront of my mind and so reading. the hunter is like a watching a love affair between darwin cooking. donald westlake. And what's interesting too. is that darwin. Cook also deliberately tried not to use any of his own language at all in the book and in fact wrote that he only used about a dozen sentences or so per each of the adaptations that were not directly in donald westlake original. And if you think about that. That's incredible yeah. You know because i mean he cares. Cares man the you know he really wanted to get it right and he knew that whatever he added would be a subtraction. And you also have the sense that the way that he's playing with time in the novels as he's adapting them is fascinating too. I mean lisa. You were commenting on how. It's much more palatable in the darwin cooke version and i think part of that is that darwin cook is breaking up the novel into kind of segments that allow it to breathe like a fine wine in some ways. And that you're going through these narrative passages. That are very heavy with pros. Just sort of following parker in the car is he's driving into the law or something but you're still with him. Yeah and you get that. Where like in the novels. You never get to come up for air. Where with the graphic novel you get these visual moments of like okay. I'm in a new place. This is new attitude. This is a new day just visually. Yeah it's much easier to follow it and it helps you pace yourself. You can dwell.

"Dragging around a battered woman like it like women like it's just less. It's just fun well this. This is the specific topic. I really wanted to get in deep with you. Lisa because i think the casual misogyny behind these books and this character route this story you know. I have very complicated feelings about this. That i kind of want to unpack and i thought it was great that you and i could kind of unpack it and then you and me and brad could unpack it and i can give you all your insights into misogyny. No go all right for me. Just straight off the bat. You meet parker in the hunter and he is a disgusting human being. He is wearing dirty. Colo's he discussing he people see his face they recoil he is not a man to be admired he's frankenstein's monster like he. He is a beast. And he's a sociopath so i think that it set up that parker is not a hero. Harker is a trash person and he is maybe not a frankenstein's monster but he's a monster in that like yours sponsor he's a machine he doesn't have like he's like a sociopath he doesn't have emotions so for me. What appeals to me in the parker novels is one like looking through. The eyes of a sociopath is always curious thankfully foreign to me. Because i am a very like emotions forward human being in also like i love plots and schemes. I liked to see someone put together a plan and execute the plan. I've always had an interest in crime films and sort of thing but it is yuckier when he has someone attached to him. That is fragile. It is interesting as you go through the series. I don't want to jump ahead but the tone invive of the hunter is very different than the other richard stark novels and certainly the other. Darwin cook adaptations. The score is a total blast. The score is like watching ocean's eleven ways but the hunter because it's so caught up in his rage and anger and his total lack of feeling for any other human being in particular the woman that he was once married to is. It's i'm going to tackle you on that point. Sure i think. Darwin cook does a beautiful job of actually illustrating how much he actually did care for lynn. And how the fact that she betrayed him. Israeli that thing that is fueling. This engine will use there. I i'll give you that. I'll give you that. I guess what i'm saying is once she betrays him and he suffers that hurt. He's then able to remove any kind of sentimentality that he had for her. And that's why he's able to cut up her face lever on the side of the road To me i go. Like was what he felt actually love in. Is he mad that she hurt him. Yes is she even more mad that she humiliated him. I think i think it's a power issue sort of but there is that one frame that i do want to just remind you guys of where she comes onto him and he says that tree is dead. Young are you. But then he goes back to his room and he's imagining her shape and it says that tree is not dead and that was the thing that scared him most right right while you still had some kind of attachment to her that that he he would always have this attachment to her and that she was the only one that he ever had any attachment to but the attachment was the way that their relationship looked like before the betrayal was he would go on a heist. They make passionate crazy love. Then he would slowly withdraw become leaner and meaner to her until the next heist so she was rolled up in the elation of him serving whatever like a she had a use. Yeah yeah. I do think that there are feelings there and i think that's one of the joys of the hunter really is trying to sort your way through. What all these things mean to parker. And i know. Richard donald westlake talked about how this book was really an experiment for him to express all emotionality internally for his character and remove all external emotion. And i think it's easier to fall into the head space of parker in the novels. Then it is in this adaptation. Although obviously cook provides a lot of stark's writing in this book but he does pull back in a way. That start never does but this emotionality in the hunter is internalized. Like when you internalize aflame it lacks oxygen and then after the hundred that flame is out. And he's just like a bulldozer just bulldozing his way through the outfit and that's a good analogy because that was even what richard i mean donald westlake. You know sorry student. But the suited of hits back and forth yeah. Donald westlake even said that he thought of parker is being like a construction worker and apparently like darwin funeral and it was a construction worker that had known donald westlake for all of his life who gave the most wonderful eulogy for him. I have not heard that story. Yeah it was the idea that he's a construction worker. He just thinks of his job is laying concrete. He kills out of expediency not out of anger and except for the hunter that's true. I think that he also does have a value system in the outfit. He's doing something out of kind of sense of day got money that was owed to me for a job. That's that's not fair. I want my if you don't deserve it. My forty five hundred dollars or however much it was and when they refused to give it to him. He essentially held their arm behind their back until they gave up. Then the outfit. They come after him because he's a nuisance and he because he went after him the first time and then he's offended by that. I told you you were going to come after me. I'm gonna burn your organization to the ground. And then he does so he like he is a man of principle. Yes that's that's the appeal to me. Is this dark principle these dark motivations and he stands by them and they are not your motivations as a citizen or as a human being. But it's nice to wear these workmen's shoes these enormous shoes that are introduced to so early on yup. Yup so brad you in particular are a big longtime fan of darwin cooks how this work strike you on. Re read in. The context of all of. Darwin cooks work so i was a massive fan of richard stark. Donald westlake and i was.

"We're focusing on crisis leadership and leading virtual teams. In the last episode we defined leadership as motivating a group toward a common goal. It really is all about communication, isn't it? None of this changes in times of crisis, so while there's chaos and uncertainty, it helps to go back to basics. It also helps to adopt strategies or play books that have worked in the past. If you consider for example, corporate crises, such as the tylenol poisonings in one, thousand, nine, hundred, two or national crises such as nine eleven. There's a playbook right. Leaders first mobilized to quickly collect information they create a task force. They take action. They calibrate effects, and then they seek preventative measures all the while, communicating with important stakeholders, including the press, employees, shareholders and customers or citizens. Yes, it's mostly reactive, but there's a playbook of sorts so in twenty twenty were watching and participating with leaders around the world, responding to Covid nineteen and racism boiling over. These crises will have permanent effects on all of US leaders of public and private institutions at the international national and local level, and even in our own homes. We're following this playbook, but it's different this time, isn't it? Things are certainly leading up, but thanks to krona virus. There's less face to face communication, and there's no question that more of our communication will be virtual from now on. There's no established playbook for leading a virtual team. At least not until now that's where today's guest executive coach Heather. Start comes in Heather's going to share with US her five C. Framework for developing a virtual culture.

"No for going was determined to press on and capture Albany. A going to not have good intelligence of Stark's militia army, preparing to move against him, he did have more general information that the Americans were gathering. Had good reason to fear an attack from New England in his rear. He had planned to send a detachment of Gerbils to sack Manchester then moves south eventually reconnecting with the advancing main army near Albany. For going's hope was that the detachment would pacify the region collect tolls, volunteers, and also gathered much needed supplies and horses. Many of the German troops that were with progression were cavalry. They had come to America without horses hoping to become mounted troops when the opportunity presented itself. The army found itself in need of more horses to us as pack animals. This was a pretty audacious mission. Less than a thousand soldiers mostly Germans who did not speak English were marching out on more than two hundred Mile Round trip through the wilderness with very little intelligence about what face them. The leader of the German troops, and we're going second in command general. Von Rodeo thought this was a crazy amount to expect of his soldiers. After a few days of discussions, we're going reduce the scope of the march. To move on the depot at Bennington capture, horses and supplies there and recruit as many loyalists as they could before they rejoined Burgoyne army. To. Lead the rate on Bennington for going selected lieutenant colonel. Friedrich Bow. A German brunswicker officer who led a regiment of goons. Dragoon if you don't know, is a soldier that normally rides a horse, but unlike a Cavalry Soldier Tribune's tend to dismount before going into battle fighting without their horses and balanced case, his men had no horses at all. They were marching around with heavy boots and equipment designed for writing. Bowel hope to capture hundreds of horses in the Connecticut Valley to equip both his own men as well as for the army more generally. About was a career officer who had seen combat in seven years war. However he had no experience with wilderness fighting. And had never commanded more than a regimen. He, also spoke no English at all. For going also deployed with Bom, a few British regulars, as well as some of the remaining native American scouts that had remained with the army. Also with bow was Philip Skien the Tory militia officer, who had assured going that most of the region still held loyalist views and would rise up to support the army when they arrived. For going task skiing with raising local recruits and getting them to join local regiments in support of the king. On August ninth bow left Fort Edward. With, about six hundred and fifty soldiers, almost all German speaking whiskers and a few cannons. His men moved about eight miles down river to Fort Miller which the Americans had already abandoned. Their, he waited a day for the native American warriors and British regulars. Who would accompany them? When the regulars were not available, foul received another hundred Germans to supplement his detachment, he also collected several hundred local loyalist volunteers, either at Fort Miller, or over the next couple of days while marching. Movement though was slow. As I said the Germans were outfitted with heavy boots and long coats that were sweltering in the August heat. Because they still do not have enough horses. The soldiers had to carry much of their own supplies, the footpaths that they used made transporting carts or the artillery extremely difficult. As a result, the column made slow progress over the next few days among the civilians, a great many profess support for the king. Some of them joined the column as volunteers and scheme did his best at recruitment, many others after swearing, the oath of allegiance given documents, identifying them as loyalists and.

"Ross Bac with my guests Brandon Stark's executive director of the Broom owes collection which opened January. Twenty twenty an automotive museum collection that you'll be hearing a lot more about as people. What incredible cars? They have their most of those cars. Start WITH P but there are few fascinating outliers as well and Brandon. I'd love to just be able to talk about some of them. I know that you sort of opened with a grand announcement about one very important Porsche. Tell us about that one so I guess you're speaking about the nine seventeen k. That's right I remember seeing that car owners auction by gooding in two thousand seventeen damn near got to sit in it but it was certainly the highlight of that sale and was a great pleasure to find out that it had actually been acquired. And is now the one of the centerpieces of Bruno's? Yeah and it's you know it's kind of a little bit odd car for us to have as the centerpiece here with the European car and of doing a little bit different racing than he did but it was a little bit special to us his own personally by just effort. He didn't loaned it to Steve McQueen for for the movie Lama. That's right but joe actually bought it after. He was used as a test car for the factory team. Anybody personally he drove it to his own birthday party. Nineteen seventy later on. After he passed away in one thousand nine hundred seventy three in Grand Prix race. They use that car to lead his funeral procession fifty thousand people there for that but his son had thought maybe he would want to raise one day so his wife held onto the car after. Joe passed away but her only caveat was that if he was going to raise it he needed to race the number seventy because that was the year that she she job at married. So that's why ours reflects the number seventy on it. That's great that's that's an amazing car. Obviously not just that specific serial number zero to four. And not just because it's been seen by probably more eyeballs than any more in the world by virtue of the film Lemond but really because it's an iconic car in the history of Porsche racing. Certainly there are no greater series of cars in the nine seven teens. You you mentioned this was of course along car a European. Gt Racing car. That was different from what you guys were doing in the states here but it certainly had the Porsche. Dna with an incredible or is opposed. Twelve cylinder engine. What an animal. It is and cars are funny..

"Today we're going to be talking about the stark situation now with version. One one point four. We saw some dramatic changes to the house. Stark play style especially in regards to the use of dire wolves. And we're bringing on two star players Greg Young and Chris from Mexico studios who streaming every Thursday at seven thirty eastern standard time on TV to talk about how this stark situation relation has really affected their play style and maybe some of their concerns. They have about how star in general at this time. So thanks guys for coming on the PODCAST and I think it's about the time we talk about the stock situation. Oh Yeah I know. You've been somewhat vocal in our local chat talking about it and you are a big star. I player this has been. I don't WanNa say bittersweet because there might not be a sweet side to it but I. He's just bitter. I don't know what's your general mood coming into this about the starks in one point four. Initially when everything dropped I was you know I had a moment of Definitely a little bit of anger whereas I kind of went through all the rules. Kind of tried to assimilate in figure out how this is GonNa Affect Star and I definitely was not happy at the beginning of of the the one point four. Drop just because I think Without going too in depth right this second I believe the whole philosophical. All kind of philosophical makeup of stark as playing as stark. was kind of attacked with this with with this Yeah what these game modes drops and and the the weirdest thing is. I don't have any problem with the game modes themselves or the changes but and even some of the things that I'm going to be calling knowing nurse. Let's not get crazy. I'm just using that as a word I know I know we have a direct. Their hate me right. But I'm GonNa the word nerve but things that I perceive as a nurse Even in a vacuum those things aren't That big of a deal but when you put it all together in this drop in the one point four game a drop up I think starks took a really really really massive hit and I think I'm just you know I'm trying to figure it out just like everyone else on a scale of like Ned getting beheaded at the end of season one or like just seizing in general factor event. You know I'm I'm at a six or seven and the only reason I'm not in nuclear is because I think there are some interesting options opening up for stark doc because of these changes but I also think like I said that philosophically as a faction the way they were presented as a faction and how we were told they would play has kind of been chopped up into. I'm not not not too thrilled about it to say the least and maybe offer a little bit of a counterpoint. Here Greg just your initial reactions to the stark situation. They're not quite season eight bad but they're definitely hanging out there and season seven. Oh okay okay. So we're GONNA have to wait and see what the next season. Maybe one point. Five is the next season. We'll see what it brings no. Don't say five eight actually snow will be at one point five wrote in two days pretty sure. They spent more time on one point five than they have on. They did on season eight so that for a long time for months we're weight and hopefully comes out soon. No all right so the one point. Four update One of the first things that came up up was When I talked to was the new tournament rules and points and they had three point two or three points is a win? Two points for tie one point for loss zero zero points for a concession and then they had these secondary points that went into these margins of victory and you could end up getting a ranking basically of exit crushing victory. Was If you beat your opponent by more than four points thing is what a standard Victory if it's three four zero two to three to four and five plus I believe okay. Correct yeah so does the scoring for victory. Is that have any impact on how stark. Uh I mean I'm going to be honest. I don't feel that it does that much In in the regard that in as many tournaments owners we hosted at mythos so far from what I've read from other places. Obviously I haven't been there myself A lot of the Games are so close. anyways that you're not gonNA see a whole lot of the three four five plus win loss Win I should say Gaps where are you going to getting these crazy. Crazy amounts of secondary points kind of skewed. So I don't know You know it's it almost makes me wonder if that form of secondary points makes more sense than the ones that we had before war with like units destroyed and stuff because if you have so many close games I want to keep the specific start but you know I think thinks start placed so close no matter what they can come from way behind they can roll tables but I think if you look at it just at two competitive players playing against each other. Usually you're not gonNA see more than three to four point margin so I I agree with all I could see it both ways though you know I agree with all of that. Especially when it comes to stark's one of the dark horse things that starks can do is just an you know on the bottom Or the next to bottom round. Just I'M GONNA go mop up three or four of your units. I can't I can't win this game but I can only lose this game by one point. They're really good at that because they don't just rely on playing objectives to win they can also just go kill a couple of units off not care that I presume creates GonNa die. Why because they are going to tie the game up or bring it to be a lot closer which is going to Kinda Gate? Some of his margin of victory. Yeah and I think that's a good point in the on on the table discord been tossing around the idea of. How far can he get a unit to move in a single activation? I think he's got it up to like twenty three moves I've I've actually. I've done this on the table. That's the the farthest I've ever gotten a unit with something like forty one. Oh good point also require hitting them with the maneuver zone YEP so they can strike range and some of that stuff you know. There is nothing more terrifying than a single beserk her model and it trae somewhere on the battlefield. Where you're like? Oh No one guy. I would argue not not anymore due soon so I guess Kinda don't want to jump into this and this whole idea now that You know so sure. The stars great at lake killing stuff right. So they're going to be able to generates writes generate vector victory points but now the dire wolves are are least with this new rule in which They are worth victory point. And that's one of the biggest source of you know of pain for a lot of star players You know we just had ben from blitz mini-van the last episode. And he was saying like you know they're they're they're annoying enough that they should be worth a victory point because getting your flank and they can do a lot of damage you know. What what do you think i? I really want Ben to send me these dire wolves he's playing with. That are doing. Yeah right you. It's GonNa get a box of dire wolves heads you know and I'll take it 'cause my if they don't just die on round one or two because I'm a new vring then and using the nations by ponies removing that piece it's also the easiest. Peter Move I. I'm rolling to to you. Know to plus three hits. Maybe and I'm getting like two and I'm like okay and then I'm on your side so I have this minus one and look you pass it on a four plus anyways. Oh it's okay because we the panic test. Oh wait you pass that two. You and my wife did nothing. Yeah I think it was an interesting to listen to Ben Talk About Shaggy dog hitting your in the rear and stuff and I agree if if you get shaggy dog in the rear it's going to suck and you're GONNA lose a lot of you know loons to morale but you're talking about a circumstance that I think in and I look at everything everything from a competitive competitive perspective. If that happens a lot of times is because the player allows that to happen. I'd never seen shaggy dog swing around Unchecked in a competitive game And just you know Kinda go about doing what he does. And the fact remains there's so many things things that keep getting ads the game to Negat- a negative morale And unless you're you know Lancaster I guess but uh well I mean yeah. It's only it's only in order so we've been getting it since kickstarter as no actually side note. I played neutral two days ago. Playing against Lancaster sucks when they only have guard captain attachments. I vividly remember my first game when I had. My Lancaster Guardsmen with my little guard. Captain and I was playing against Josh and he was just all over me doing is crazy. Maneuvers claiming the flanks and I was out of position over and over again. But I'm like Oh but it's an order. I'm I got that for this this around and just crushing him with Lancaster after supremacy primacy when we're like totally unskilled was was just like. Oh I kind of like Lancers. We'll stick with them and still such a to really is now. You know as you get more experience you can learn to play around it of course but I think shaggy dog one of the things that wasn't mentioned in that initial discussion with Ben is that you don't just take shaggy dog right. Shaggy dog is free but you have to take ricken and Rick and himself is a liability of giving up an additional victory point especially with neutral heroes to coming out. Oh Yeah Jack in Harare Ken. If you rolls rolls a six just instantly kill ricken can instantly kill Joffrey. So I don't know I see a lot of competitive kings guard for awhile and in two activation walder can and you know. Kill a dog. I don't I just. I am not in in the school of thought that spending to activation to cause two wounds to a unit to get a VP is not worth it. I don't think that's a wasted activation at all. I mean in a game where so many of my games that I've the plate come down to one or two points. That's amazingly huge. It's like getting free points. I mean for me chase you bring up like the the biggest kind of philosophical problem with what has happened with dogs becoming one bb because in a vacuum..

"Also might have saved. Was beautiful. Yeah. Yeah. And there's a line in one of the earlier films think it's captain America saying it Tony stark, and he's just basically like I don't have faith that when it came down to it that you would lay your your life down. And obviously and that move. I think it's a vendor. But, you know, Tony argues, of course, I wouldn't I would try to figure out how to fix it. Yeah. And even in this movie right in the beginning, when they go to Tony, and he's got his wife and his kid, and they say, we've got to do this. He's like Helen's, like, not giving this up. You know, I forget the exact line. But basically, it was like, no, we've got a I forget how they worded it. But basically, he looked at his family, and it was like, I have my purpose right here. Yeah. Like I'm not willing to sacrifice any of this for an attempt. I'm not willing to do it, but he ultimately came around and he did it. And we get the inverse of what we watched an Infinity war, where Spiderman was fading away, and Tony was there. To basically be with him. And now are watching the inverse of it? Oh, caught. That was so hard where his stark, Mr Stark. Yes, it's brutal. And then, of course, while while Peter is sitting there, having his good by letting him know Mr Stark, we did it. We won pepper shows up. I'm tearing up again. Yeah. And she, she has her moment of, of goodbye and the line that, if the scene itself hadn't been getting to yet, the line that she says to him is, it's okay. You can rest now. Yup. And it was very beautifully delivered. It was fantastic acting if they gave out awards for scenes. This this has to be the front runner for this year. So far the scene was done amazingly. Well, and I, I as a film fan was truly moved by not just the MC you and the Tony start character. But look in as I said at the man, Robert Downey and knowing that he got to give the character that saved his career, and maybe saved his life, the proper send-off this way, there's something poetic about it. Yeah. I mean 'cause lucky alluded to before, like many ways, Tony start. Kinda was Robert Downey junior. Yeah. The the I mean obviously the stakes for Robert Downey junior person weren't as high as they are for Tony stark. But the, the parallels are. Yeah, absolutely. And so we get the, the cinema moment where it showing the reactor on his chest glowing and then it, it fades to black. And that's our. That's our he's gone moment. And so can make me ugly cry. Yeah. So we, we, we fast forward to the funeral for Robert down over for Tony start. And everyone's there, everybody's they're like he's getting his sendoff. She takes the, the heart. Oh, god. Tony stark as a heart it gets it gets sent off into the water. We get the moment where everybody's just standing there and appreciation for what this man did what he represented and again, you know, like taking it with from outside of the movie and looking at it from the outside looking in for what it is. Tony stark and iron man started this whole thing, the MC you began in two thousand eight with that movie. Yeah. And so twenty two movies later to get this off with all of the characters that came after that movie that the MC you has developed into again. Like within the MC within the movie was beautifully done. And even if you look at it just from the artistic scene of all those actors there to pay homage to the person that started all of this for them was extremely touching extremely well done. And I actually just recently read, I think earlier today, maybe last night, I think that was. Was the only time during the entire filming of this movie that they brought everyone together, and they didn't even tell them what exactly they were there for. And there's I think it's on our page. There's a there's a picture of like the entire cast and crew. Aired sits together that was for this scene. Yeah. The rest of this film was done, you know, segmented. We're not everybody needed to be there at the same time. This brought every single person there yet. And so while I say, you know, kind of assuming that this had to be a very touching moment for Robert Downey and for these actors to give their respect to what his movie and his acting portrayal of ironman, ultimately created. I mean, and they very literal sense that happened as they brought everyone together to have that moment. So I thought both the outside of it, and within the MC you both of those were done in, in a great way. And going back to that two thousand eight iron men film that movie was done by Jon Favreau. And I had already been crying from the death of iron man like the scene was done so, well, I definitely had no dry is at that point. But I was pulling myself together and the panning through all the character standing, there funeral was very touching. But at that point, I was I was pulling myself together. I was good. I was I was getting myself all all back on track. That was not. And then they got to the porch and we see pepper standing there. And then we see happy portrayed by Jon Favreau, sitting with. Morgan. I believe her name was Tony's daughter. And we have one of the most touching moments I've ever seen in cinema. And I don't say that lightly like I've seen this movie twice and cried both times. And when I told my father about the scene teared up tell him adad. So it's very possible that as I talk about are now material again. In that two thousand eight film, when Tony gets back from the desert, the first thing he says he wants is to get an American cheese burger. And so we have this kind of throwaway line from a movie eleven years ago, and we're sitting there watching happy, who is with iron man all the way back in the two thousand eight movie now sitting with the deceased, Tony Stark's daughter, and it's at the funeral and he's being the rock for her. He's the one not standing there allowed to give his emotion because he's being the rock for the child, which that role in and of itself in general is a brutal role to take on, but he's doing it. Yeah. And so he's there with the daughter and asks if she's. Okay. And she says she is. And he asked us, he's hungry. And like the moment. He said it. It, it started to like come together because having just gone through these movies recently. You know, we had just watched iron man, just not that long ago month or two ago. So that movie was still fresh in my mind. And the moment she said she was hungry. And he asked what she wanted. Waterworks. The waterworks hit again and they hit hard. Like, I honestly don't know if there's ever a film that, like up single moment. Hit me the way that did. And so you just had this beautiful moment where she says she wants to cheeseburger. And I'm gonna get to a quick, I'm not fucking crying again. So she says she wants to cheeseburger and Jon Favreau fucking nails it with bowl. I'm gonna you know, your daddy, late cheeseburgers, and I'm gonna get you all the cheeseburgers you want. And it was just done like perfectly like it was ethically performed Jon Favreau as a director of that movie where that callback line came from deserve that moment, Robert Downey junior and the character of Tony stark deserve that moment, everyone. That's built this universe up to now deserve that moment. And they nailed it, it was flawless. So that's it for that. We're all sitting here with tears in her eyes. Yeah, it was it was legitimately beautiful. It was amazingly done, like I say, within the outside of it, it was very touching. Very well done. I'm sure when this comes out again, and I see it again, on, Blu Ray or whatever I'm going to cry again. And I'm very happy that everyone involved got to have that moment that from what I've read indefinitely from my own anecdote assault and the friends and family that has seen this movie. It hit all of us in a profound way, and it's one of the most brilliant and touching cinema moment. I've experienced and I'm really excited that the was able to create that. Yeah. Going into the movie, you know, we knew that this was going to be the last movie for some of the actors. Yeah. So Robert Downey junior. Obviously, Chris Evans captain America and Gwyneth Paltrow at all said, you know, we're not doing anymore. So we kind of knew that their character arcs were ending in this movie. And I, I kinda figured one of them would want are all of them probably die. But I
