But i'm surrounded by great ones You know my understanding of the legal elements of this case is that there is no way to uphold them. Mississippi law without overturning roe. So that is it's basically your thumbs up thumbs down vote on roe v wade You know. I think that part of what's happening here is people are i mean i know. All's speaking my eyes state and says i've been taught i'm grappling with the fact that you know we're sort of. We did everything that we could possibly do in terms of light slipping the senate and like getting the house back and getting rid of you know donald trump and we're really left with the stark reminder that his legacy is this court and that in fact the extreme forces including and especially anti-choice forces that put him in office got what they wanted and they have every ability to follow through with ending as you said legal abortion rates him. And we're really careful to say it that way because you don't end abortion as we know trio You just end abortion rights and put it out of reach trim some people and make it a lot more dangerous for

And it still will but it's costing the nation a lot of money in it looks like it will continue to do so in the future Last week there was a pretty fiery hearing over on the house. Side of the us congress Lawmakers are really as fired up about the cost of the thirty five as they used to get about the navy's littoral combat ship and several leading lawmakers.

"You need that too. They sure do cars like the nine seventeen and they take a long time to warm up. It's not just turn the key and go exactly. That's a real engineering feat. To get those things started at inhibits a lot of us. Sometimes but some of our other cars especially the porsches or even older cars. We'll talk about a minute. Her easier to fire up and just take around the parking lot and of course. You've got the grounds to do there. Which is one thing that distinguishes your collection from. So many that are sort of sitting down. We're very fortunate with that. It's been one of the exciting things is when we come in. We can kind of imagine what we want our world that looked like and what we want to be able to do. So we're trying to make the most of it and it's been fun for all of us to just imagine it will. It sounds like the dream has become reality. We've been talking about portions here random but mostly porsches anything that the average there is such a thing as an average car lover would recognizes a Porsche. One that would resonate quite a bit more. Is that famous nine? Thirty five nine hundred seventy nine nine thirty five. You've got which is essentially a nine eleven shape. Turn into fire breathing monster. Tell us about that one. Yes so that's like I mentioned that was Peter's last race car. Those were extremely brutal cars to drive but highly successful race cars. The turbo lag I think could be measured on the seconds that turns it into a seven hundred horsepower. Slingshot exactly I think you you got to figure out what what point of the corner you put your foot all the way down and then hope Yup. That's right two hundred mile an hour car. Those guys were doing malzahn straight speeds practically I. It's amazing what this cars would do and either love kind of Tartan plaid so it's Peter's Tartan plaid seat in one of the first things he would do with the nine thirty five is change out schiffer mechanism with something a little bit beefier than would have come from the factory and so you can see what Peter Shifter's would have looked like also got him Jack Atkinson who's the crew chief for. Peter developed a way that I guess he learned it from penske where you could a pressurized. The brakes to pop those open with compressed air to reduce the amount of time a brake pad. Change or break change would take race so you can kind of see where the hose would hook up to those and it's just neat to see that's great getting a leg up on the competition to bring up another car but I love having the nine thirty five there because we also have an R. Sr next to it and a little bit the precursor to the nine thirty five and it was. Actually the last that's right naturally aspirated air-cooled car would win. Daytona. Would that be one thousand? Nine hundred ninety five is and at one Daytona in nineteen seventy seven. You know that's the last quote unquote pure Porsche. We'RE GETTING INTO NINE. Eleven history boy that that was a monster. Enlists the look it? It didn't even have to fire up to look at. That car is so exciting. It takes that nine eleven with. Oh what a look. Look that everybody wants to start. It sounds.

"You kind of get to know one another over time and the car. We be kept a secret for a couple years so it's been hidden away and we have an all spend a lotta time together. So we're we're just now getting to spend time with each other and get to know each other. It sounds weird like that. They do have a soul to them. There's definitely a goal there so we were still dating a little bit here but now the cars amazing and what's been so exciting is to see how people get to see them and then also to see the reaction when they realized what those cars could do performance wise while you're looking at it and for car city speeds for that amount of time when you're next to the car and you're looking at the car is made of and what it must be like to be inside it it really is fascinating this. Those were almost death defying acts. I mean cut like our First Moon. Astronauts going up those little tiny capsules. You'd be shaken after death in those things and as advanced as nine seventeen were in the nineteen seventy. They were certainly a far cry from any cars. We have today in terms of safety and breaking and and whatnot and yet they were achieving speeds. That were nearly on par with. There was fastest. Geyser driving today Two hundred miles an hour in in that machine must have been an other worldly experiences with tire technology. That's fifty years older than that's right today. That's one of the things that really stands out as our oldest race cargoes back to eighteen ninety four and then our newest one is last year's. Pclm car that we bought after the season was over. And you realize as you walk through all of these cars just how dedicated to the idea of going fast that these drivers must have been when look at them and you put yourself in their shoes. I don't think many of us would have the courage to do what they did. One hundred miles an hour in one thousand nine hundred fifteen would have been an incredible incredible feat A. Yeah I WANNA talk about some of those older cars you've got. I guess. Maybe we should probably shuffle the Porsche DHEC first though. What do you think since China who you guys are all about now? I don't WANNA put too fine a point on it or embarrass anybody by asking Howard Hughes how much he's worth. But I know for a fact that particular Porsche sold for fourteen million and change which seemed like a lot of money at the time but as an artifact of Porsche history. It's probably a bargain retrospect. Because they ain't making those anymore you've got some other cars though that are of equal interest and certainly of great significance unfortunate history. I know not just the the cars that Peter drove but some earlier ones as well. You have a ninety eight. That's kind of significant car. Don't you yeah? That car was also Joseph car he and Venkov offered one nurburgring in that car. Next and sixty eight is an early car. It kind of falls that that evolution up through the nine seventeen and that's right. They're certainly not many of those in. What's remarkable is. These cars have been preserved. I know like you're seventeen. The lemond nine seventeen. I guess one reason it survived as because it was essentially stuff in a barn for a couple of decades sometimes those intervening years or the ones that are the truth and you know a car. Sitting static is the hardest way to keep one. So you never know what you're going to find but we've been blessed fees and you know. We got the nine seventeen from auction. This was a private socar the night away. And we're very fortunate to have it. That's great at the other book into the nine seventeen equation those your Canam racer tell us about the nine seventeen ten. It's the nine seventeen ten started out. Peter Greg's car I got it. It was an a naturally aspirated. Car is actually blue at first and then that correct think about three races in in the setback over to Germany for a pair while it was there. They went ahead and did the turbo charge upgrade to the car. They brought it back. Peter I think one time and if you hear Hurley Melody Peter came to him and said early. You've gotTa this car and you've got to run it because I didn't want anything to do with it. Well I guess it was an animal. Put it into context. I mean today. Guys are boasting their twelve hundred horsepower. Mugabe's but this damn thing made eleven hundred horsepower nineteen seventy-one yeah and with the turn of a Knob some more than that. So it's they don't wait anything so you talk about just fearless that that's the fearless car and fuel tanks next to you in the driver's next door sill that's right your legs are out over the frame and it really took a special person to drive that but that cars were early on the map is his success in the nine seventeen and then winning. Daytona and seventy three put him on the right trajectory for sure that's right and starting with one of the most wicked race cars Porsche's history. Yeah just crazy times and you know it's funny. The pressurized frames that way they would be able to tell if the frame cracked right after the race every time he would hook up the pressure gauge red zero all. He was lucky to be alive. Lucky it didn't disintegrate right out from under him tell the driver they would just put pressure on it. They can spray it with soap so they could find the cracks and Oh my God well. That back up. Isn't it amazing? What ingenuity and what bravery on the part of the drivers in the guys at invented these things? What's really need? Is We have that car directly in front of our nine. Seventeen K on display so. It's kind of interesting to see the American and European version of the same car and it's funny because they are very representative of the two different cultures. I think that's right well because these cars are obviously static. Most of the time. Do you ever have days where you have an opportunity to get out and fire them up and have your visitors see those. She anticipate that happening in the future. That's on the agenda will see what our corona virus slowdown does as far as tightening for things but as I mentioned sitting static is a terrible thing to do to a car so the plan is to run them. We do plan on doing one. We call it a demo day a year. We'll set up some bleachers. People can come out and and see them. It won't be any kind of real speed but you get to smell them and hear them in. Watch them move which is interesting and then we also have a four wheel. Chassis dyno here as well that every car will will be exercised on at least once a year definitely important to keep that exercise. And when you're locked down in your house for a month you WANNA make sure you get about a half an hour. An hour every day just doing some activity..

"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..

"OF YEP. There's another one. Yeah that was front and center when we were laying things out here. That's a really rational way of approaching the viewer experience. Because at a certain point there is overload. These are important automotive artifacts they need to have some space around them both physical space and the time to to really appreciate what they are. I love the idea of being able to look under the car. Sometimes those are the most exciting parts and Turley. Kinda get up close and personal with with these machines race cars especially have a certain allure. Because they're not all perfect panel gaps in flawless paint. They were battle scars. They have a bit of Patina that really reflects their careers as track weapons. And I imagine it's exciting to see some of those things too. Yeah and that's true. And it gives them character and five percent of what we have here are racecars or were raised cars. And we like those. Because that's kind of was the impetus for the change in the way that people test their inventions NC if they worked and that's what interests us so yes very racecar focus and there's always something to see you know little cheat here or clever maneuver there. That's right raced. Race cars take advantage of the rules. You push it right up to the limit until the scrutineer Scalia to back off we'll Brandon you're obviously the executive director of the Bruno's collection but clearly you have a personal affinity for cars and a history with through Moses. Well why don't you tell us a little some about yourself? Yes so basically grew up here in Jacksonville and went to college. I also went to Jacksonville. University Lake Hurley did but in two thousand five I was looking for a career. Ended UP. Going to Bruce and got a job at their lexus dealership. In reconditioning in the in the back and realized I I loved it and so got exposed a lot to racing cars then and stayed with us until sold the stores and actually stayed on with the new group for a couple years after that. I love cars. I love this world. I never was exposed to it as much as a child. I always wanted to be but there's never around it so once. It became tangible. Just kind of ran with it so. I moved to Porsche. In two thousand ten became the sales manager at Porsche ultimately was the last general manager at Bir. Most Porsche when we sold the dealerships and then the first dinner manager Porsche Jacksonville. And then about two years ago. Dan Davis who owns the collection? Approach me about becoming the executive director at the rumors collection. That's a heck of a transition boys general manager of a Porsche dealership in two thousand ten. That was a pretty heavy time and Porsche was really gaining some steam in terms of sales volume and and really stern the pot coming up with some incredible cars which they continue to do today but that was had to be an especially exciting time in terms of the Porsche landscape and of course it's probably important to remind our listeners if they don't already know that's part from southern California Florida's like the biggest porsche market in the world. Isn't it yes? It's bigger than a lot of countries. Exactly exactly where. Che's definitely language spoken very fluently among Floridians but really going from dealership role to curatorial role. Well actually more than than that. Because you're the executive director and you've actually got to keep the ship afloat to. It's really about people skills and kind of developing the relationships that generate excitement among the community and the people directly involved with the institution right. And so much of what we're trying to do is is experiential which I think car sales have gone to as much as anything else. It's as much about the experiences as it is about the item right. So that's right the Porsche experienced centers. Being too great examples both in Georgia and California. You know of how people really want to connect with the mark correct and so. That's kind of what we've tried to bring here and you know luckily with the facility that we have in the collection we have. It takes some of the pressure off. But it's also a joke but Dan all the time that he he went and took away all my excuses. Well I'm sure you don't have a whole lot of excuses to make it. Sounds like things are chugging along real well with your history at the Orsha dealership. You have some cars here on. I personally have to. We have a Cayenne in the garage and then I have a GT. For that. I drive. Oh boy my passionate car. You're having too much fun. The best kept secret in the whole Porsche Arsenal. It is nothing that handles better. And and affords more fun than than that downside. When I left the dealership is I no longer got a demo so I had to pick one. You get no argument from me. That's A. That's a wonderful wonderful car. Obviously you're walking the walk and talking the talk. Let's take a quick break and come back and talk about some of the cars at the room collection. Obviously most of.

"Were were car. Dealers here in Jacksonville Florida and we had a collection of cars. That had accumulated over time and we had A. We called our museum space at at the Dealership. The dealership sold in two thousand fifteen. At that point we realized we needed to move all of our collector cars so we started looking around. Existing space is one of the ones that had always had some appeal to us. Was Ford Assembly plant. That is located in downtown Jacksonville Florida and operated from Nineteen Twenty Four. All the way through at least nineteen sixty two at the end. It was just a distribution center but had very unique could afford look too large windows skylights and just kind of a lot of character so when we realize that was just too far gone we we use that as the inspiration for the design of our building. Well it sounds like everything about your collection really is about tribute talk about the dealership. I guess it's probably important to start by explaining what exactly Bruma says. I know that there was a guy that actually started. The dealership named Hubert Brundage and Brundage was shortened to reflect his telex name which was brundage motors. So Bruno's is really a kind of an abbreviation of that and of course. Bruno's went on to become a famous name with a new owner acquired. It the guy that will be talking about named Peter. Greg Correct Uber. Brennan was heavily involved in motor sport himself. And that's how he got into the car business is he figured he could race more inexpensively if he owned a distributorship and so he acquired a Volkswagen distributorship in nineteen fifty three. And that's how it began. I guess is dealership opened in fifty nine officially as a porsche dealership. Is that right correct? So he went from Volkswagen and became the southern Porsche. Distributor for the southern United States southeastern United States and ultimately had a dealership and nineteen fifty. Nine is when we have our original dealership agreement signed. And that's where you'll see. I see Bruno's used as the name of the dealership instead of brundage motors boy. That's a great formative. Time three fifty six as and cars that look like little bathtubs turned upside down amazing period versus formative years. Who really the late fifties and the sixties certainly were the years of transition too much more systematized and professional and serious endeavour especially as the next owner of the dealership discovered. That's Peter Greg. I mean obviously name that resonates in the history of American racing. Maybe you want to talk a little bit about him. Peter was kind of the next big step for broom. Oh so Hubert died in a motorcycle accident. Nineteen sixty four and Peter lived in Jacksonville. He was a naval intelligence officer harbor educated so one of the ships he used to fly on to was called the. Us forestall aircraft carrier here in town. The whole number for that ship was fifty. Nine and Peter always liked the way the number looked when he was flying into the plane. And so that's when he decided that was going to be his race car number and from nineteen sixty seven on. That's been our remus racing number. And after Hubert past the distributorship was sold and Peter Ultimately I think it was his third attempt purchase promote in nineteen sixty five and from then he really took it to the next level with motor sports. And you'll see a lotta pictures from Daytona thinking sixty seven that's right. That was certainly an important year with nine thirty five but I guess we're getting ahead of ourselves because we want to talk about all these great cars at a little bit because certainly the cars are what are going to bring people to see this incredible collection. I guess it would probably not be hyperbole to say that Peter Greg was the most important American race car driver the period I mean he he had was something like one hundred fifty two wins out of three hundred forty starts which is just an incredible resume of success and earned him great respect and an enduring legacy and in the sport couple of Transam wins six IMSA. Gto Wins for Wednesday the twenty four hours of Daytona. I mean this is Hettie stuff right and in a lot of part of our history. You know car. Sales were there to help fund our racing habit for lack of a better term and so it continues started Hubert with that. And then Peter is well the the dealerships helped him carry on what he wanted to do on the race track and he was extremely successful and is much as it was talent. It was his personality. His attention to detail was probably on the second to none. Didn't they call him? Peter Perfect you're perfect. Yes and the way he would sort cars and go through them to the extent of basically rebuilding them when he took delivery of them from the factory. It's still mentioned Jerry today. That's truly amazing. I guess he made a good friend around about one thousand nine hundred sixty six when he raced against Hurley. Haywood and early beat him was that it was that the story yes. Her early beat him. I think that was sixty. Nine and Hurley. Haywood was going to school at Jacksonville University here in town and he had souped up corvette that he would drive around and ended up competing in an auto cross against Peter and actually beat Peter. And so Peter kind of taken the mantra. If you can't beat them join them told Hurley. Well you must be pretty good if you can beat me and asked him to race in Watkins Glen that year if those two met at the right place at the right time and it was the two right people. That's really an amazing thing. I know that early continued to work with the dealership. In fact I guess he was a VP there throughout some of the seventies and and of course later on after Peter Gregg died was a young man and I guess something not often talked about. He committed suicide at forty years of age. I guess he had a number of medical concerns and it was tragedy both personally and in the world of racing something. That probably doesn't get mentioned enough. Speaking of that. Hetty era. I mean clearly the sixties and the seventies or when all the great racing action happened in his career and a lot of Hurley's early career as well. Let's talk about some of the ways that you've sort of manifested this collection. I know that you talk about the private collection the dealership owned for all those many years and it was finally time to take it to the Public. Talk about that evolution. Talk about how you got to wear yard today. Yeah it's been quite a journey one of the things. I didn't mention but you kind of nodded to was the ability of the company to keep the name in the racing team together for so long and I feel like I probably should mention Bob. Snodgrass is role in that. So Bob was hired. On as Peter's General Manager Nineteen seventy two and he remained with the dealership in the racing team through two thousand seven when he passed. Peter committed suicide middle of December nineteen eighty. We have been married for nine days. And so his wife of nine days then takes over the companies and that it really was Bob the help. Jaffer her through those times. And Keep it together and it was also Bob that found. Dan Davis a local businessman here to purchase promotes from Deborah in nineteen ninety and that was able to continue the legacy quite passing of the torch with people who are committed. Obviously to more than just selling cars or raven racing. Cars sounds like there was a lot of personal affection and commitment there was in that transferred throughout the companies. If you're a reporter that wash cars and the back lot. You were still proud on Monday when you came in and the team had had a good weekend or you're bummed out if they had a bad weekend but it was very much a part of everything that people did around the stores back to the collection you know. The first car in our collection was actually are nine hundred seventy nine nine thirty five Porsche. It was Peter's last race car. It's probably one of the most original unmodified nine thirty five's in the world. But that was part of the transaction when Dannenberg bought the dealerships from Deborah and the the first car collection. Well that's a great linchpin to build a collection around because of the obviously the personal connection the fact that it was Peter's Personal Car. I guess he took eight wins in that car. And of course the seventy-nine MCI when it was cars model Europe production brutal car to drive and with the collection. If there's a mission statement so to speak what might that be? The purpose of opening to the public is one. We want people to be part of this. You know there's there's a couple of sides to what's going on here. We have our heritage and history that we need to give a place for amazing. How many times you will come across someone who says I remember sitting in my on my dad's shoulders at Daytona. I'm watching.

"Everybody the from the verge cast on this week's interview episode very timely are excellent policy reporter, McKenna Kelly joins me to talk to FCC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks. He is brand new. He's one of the newest commissioners AFC he was just appointed, I think a hundred days ago. The President Trump is a democrat Commissioner we talked to him about the T mobile sprint merger. But what's going on with ralway location, tracking robo calls all of the things FCC Commissioner has to think about is they manage our nation's various networks is big job. Commissioner Starks extremely chill dude, he got into it with us became Adam pretty hard really interesting interview the way he thinks about he was a DOJ lawyer before he really he thinks about things differently than I think other SEC people we've talked to and he really thinks about how to make sure accessing is, is equal for as many. So that's really interesting frame. Then we ask them a lot of China's spying on us through while they so check it out this. FCC Commissioner Jeffrey starts. We're here with SEC Commissioner Jeffrey Starks. Harry, sir. Great, great to be here on joined McKenna Kelley our policy reporter, happy me back. So I'm going to start with a real softball. It actually has a not even line. Good job. I like it. You're like the new guy. The FCC. Yes. Just started. Yes. Like five months ago. No. No. Not even I think I just crossed a one hundred. So about a little over three months. Okay. You're appointed by President Trump. Yes. Although I'm an democratic seat. And so I'm. You know, it's a recommendation from Senator Schumer to the president. The president then accepted the recommendation. So I was nominated by President Trump. I'm officially a presidential appointee confirmed by the Senate. But a democratic seat. Yes. So what does that day? Look like the point did you get a phone call? Is it like the Nobel prize? Like the middle of the night is a for the confirmation for the appointment. The appointment is at a letter does, like a does the military show up at your door for the dirty secret is there was a lot of lead up to actually getting the appointment. And so, you know, had to interview, of course, with Senator Schumer had to interview, of course, with folks in the White House. And so the actual appointment when it was accepted by the president. Yes. I did get a phone call that the president was going to nominate me who is a phone call from the phone call was from the head of PPO presidential personnel operations. I don't even know there was such thing. Yes. PPO. All right. I'm I've always been curious whenever whenever discusses. The mc. Canucks of that. I got to take you under the hood. It's good the PPO. I gotta find this person and then walk us through your back on all bit. So you're at the FCC before you litigated a pretty big net, neutrality case, just give people a sense of your history. Yes. So what Yale for law school? I'll, I'll start even further than that, which is right after undergrad worked for a couple of years in the private sector, and then worked for Illinois state Senate staff committee on which then a little known Senator daybreak Obama stat when he was a state Senator in Illinois and volunteered for his US senatorial campaign. And so I like to always say that I was giving him some some guidance on ways to votes, even way back when then went to Yale for law school graduate from there, worked in the private sector for a couple years, then joined the Obama administration where I was senior counsel to the deputy attorney general. So this is the Jim Cole was my boss, right? Under Eric Holder and handled a number of matters their civil some criminals, some national security matters. And then. Got brought over to the FCC were. Yes, I was working on universal service was working on early net neutrality cases. And then was this whole kind of appointment ended up happening?

Like, they're like something that was like one, I think Danny's first lessons that how you can. You know, like it's not so easy to come in. And be like, oh, I'm going to be the savior, you know. And this is you know, if you ask any person in king's landing their opinion on Danny burning them alive to save them. Pretty sure turn out negative. So. So anyway, Thira moving on L. It's not in Danny's nature to slaughter thousands of innocent people. But I think that's a whole reason that killed radar Rague Allen, MS sandy regular Ray gal could easily died last episode. It's more of a gut punch for Danny to have him die at the hands of our enemy and rival rather than the dead as an English teacher in love of literature. I always look the our favorite books over the show. But I understand your frustration with the show deviating from the spirit of the books. I think they're aspects of the latest episode that while hardly Shakespeare were nonetheless Shakespearean in their intrigue the secrets the backstabbing Danny as MacBeth and Lady Macbeth all wrapped up in the one. And by the way, prophecies never helped Shakespeare's characters. What I mean to say by that is that I still have hope I mean. Yeah, Beth is interesting because like imagined a set piece of Beth where the forest comes alive and marches on the castle like being staged because like the description is literally like the posing army is holding like big branches in front of their faces the camouflage some. Selves as trees actually saw that happen on screen like lovingly created look ridiculous, right? The double DS is have the problem that like they can't just have, you know, MacBeth looking out and be like, oh, my God, look at the fulfillment of the prophecy on you know, they have to actually show put this on screen and a lot of times, they do it. And you can just tell it's do told branches in front or face. Gotcha. So yeah. Yeah. Katie this show is recently been setting up Danny to be the mad Queen especially with the killing of a sandy push to breaking point. But I will personally be very disappointed angry at the show takes us routes view and many other people Danny's been such a triumphant figure and a symbol of hope for women in a world remained seemingly always upper search lamented about what she would have been able to -ccomplish only she were a man will Danny as a cops a ton and has a very impressive resume. She's put faith in herself, which led the mini others devoting themselves to her. She's always found a unique way to deal with her obstacles such as when she was acquired the sullied. She has provided show with many bad ass moments. That left me to pump even be able to fall asleep on several nights. I just hope they don't Inder arc with a craze spiral because her dad went mad. It's an easy way to pick between her and John just wanna know your thoughts about whether you think is interesting way, she could be both the mad Queen because that seems like a path show is taking and still remain a strong female hero. If you go full mad Queen. I don't think your hero anymore. Well, the problem. Okay. What about Brad, Brad? Brad, the Impaler different, dude. Vlad the Impaler. Okay. The guy behind trooper with or here. So he's I century the the real life inspiration for Dracula. He's this guy who was ruthless and he made shows of impaling creating corpses of force for force of corpses around his castle where he would take the people that were as enemies and pale them.

He's going to have it on his belt. Remind him out. That's the thing. That's keeping him alive. Now that severed ear. Yes. So we move over to this feasts that they're having winter fell with half their army dead. I guess there's so much food that they can just you know, Chow down really enjoy themselves. Yeah. I mean, there's so many less mouths to feed. Absolutely roll out the wind and the Mead and the ale and the finest cuts of mutton mutton. I don't quite know how to cover the scene because like I said earlier, it it it's sort of just Brome around, and you feel like you're you're just a spectator at this feast sort of going between groups right flitting through the crowd fine with just going from group to group if you fry be quicker or however you want to do then. Okay. Well, I'm just gonna take it sort of. Piece by piece here like it won't be in particularly chronological order but close so Danny makes injury and official Barath, Ian, as well as the Lord of storms in all, right? Stop there. Yes. What how do you greater politics on this? I think she is playing an excellent game here. Really? Yes. However, I think if you look at. So the thing there's been something about Danny this entire series that has been sort of sticking in my craw with her. And I Finally I understand that it is just her demeanor in general because in this scene. She's doing something that is great, you know, and shoot ingratiate her to everyone. And she only gets about halfway there because she starts this off with fear. I mean, she's playing this card of I m a fearsome woman. I am potentially able to smile at you any second. I choose some imagined slight from the past that you had nothing to do. Right. And she plays that card of any of the Senate doesn't feel right? Joe pesci? My clown. Absolutely. Like, he's she's it's, but she does this in every single interaction. She has anyone other than maybe John sands. She tried the Budgie John at the first couple's. Yeah, you're right. It is a fun Sola my migrating over politics is like, okay. 'cause I it's it's it's tough to say because northern fractious. Lot prone to take and Finns about anything. But I think her rewarding southern bastard with a southern title at this feast where it's like honoring the the the largely northern sacrifices and SOC sacrifices is weird. Like, I think I maybe she should've started with like looking at the north like there's a couple, you know, we know that last hearth is could we give that to a Wilding or at least offer to them. Could we give it to northern like a lesser Lord or I just felt like it was odd? But then again, I started thinking like how could they do that without pissing off the northern because she starts? Slicing indictment lands given away to people that maybe not ever when sure about like, oh this guy second cousin Ramsay Bolton. Like, the, you know, the answer is they probably should have talked about this before the feast or hey, I wanna give I wanna give you know, there's a couple of clear heroes here. We gotta we gotta butter their breads everyone else knows it's coming. But clearly. This was just the lark that she did. Well, it's it's a very calculated one. It is what I like about it, it seems it seems unfortunately calculated to shore up the maybe the places she'd already be strong in. You know, like the tar Gary never that popular up north and the north is really never been popular with anybody except themselves. So sure I think it's also just a demonstration of general generosity. Right. Like, she wants people to see her in a new light. And see that if they are loyal to her. They'll be rewarded. So I think like, yes, it may not be the perfect gesture here, but it.

"The survivors at winter fell mourning their lost loved ones, and John gives a big speech, honoring them, a pretty powerful speech. As centrally saying, you know, we we are the memory of LeicesteR oath, or at least brand I expected to look over Brandon any moment, you got that yet that because you know, we're mere mortals, you got that memory thing. Go and. Yeah. To say and remember all these people. Plus, he gets like distinctively John cadence in his voice, I always like that. What does she has got to rub men? And. Yeah. It's it's so I think it's really cool, and it's also fun to like just start narrating or shopping list. And that at times that it approaches like going to re doesn't Leyla got shattner esque qualities he breaks up the dial out like if he was born in the highlands of Scotland, that's what the James t Kirk. What's out? Like, right. Definitely noticed it. I really liked Santa slip in that Dyer will Sigillino hairpin into his armor, kind of like, you know, spiritually. Anointing ran Ramsey theon as as a stark in death. I thought that was great. I've said many times, I think Amelie Clark struggles at grief, but I think she really did a great job grieving over Giora and this like the mountain dead that they're burning kind of shows the sacrifice that that's going to go on. Now, they're going to undercut this later by saying Honi, really half of everyone that died like ninety seven percent. But that speech was great. And it's all about and is very ironic in a bitter. Sweet. I guess mostly bitter kind of way that that John is giving a speech that's a homily on setting aside, your differences in working for the greater good and not for any kind of advancement or any but just to protect people. So that give their lives that others might live. And yet the rest of the episode is going to be everyone flagrantly forgetting all that. And going. I mean, I don't know. I think various thinks he's doing the right thing. I mean, this is all just ripping this alliance apart the rest of the episode, absolutely. It's it's it should be a moment of like. Oh, no, look how fucked up ghost got. And I bet like it would be great to see John sort of nursing ghosts wounds and treating him like the loyal dire. Wolf pup that he's been the whole time. But we were not going to get that this episode seeing go since I seen. I'm like, yes. And then by the end. So I was saying all that thing about like, we only thirty seconds of goes, we riot..

"Well, it goes. I mean, it's like okay during doesn't matter anymore. No one likes door. Moving on sons in areas have kind of a disagreement, and then John steps in and says, no we're going with deniro's. She's the one that we're obeying. She's the Queen of the seven kingdoms the their plan, which is to lay siege to king's landing and in caused the people to turn on Searcy. And if she fights them in the field John says, we will defeat her in the field, which seems like a kind of a vague plan to me. Texted you. I was like when did when was it? Explain why they split up. They didn't explain this. I rewind the scene when I was preparing for this other sewed, and they do not explain why they split up. Now, there's a kind of gonna sume a couple reasons maybe they couldn't fit took boats. They couldn't fit the unsullied into threat key on the boats, so Tyrian Davos or merging with them. There could be reasons, but they don't explain specific to the strategy. Why the bulk of their forces going down the kings road as the rest of them are moving Navaly to dragon stone, and they're approaching king's landing at different times. Which is asinine. This is all absurd. It's like they're they're writing towards these moments like instead of writing what these characters would actually do like, even might be a bad general. And that might be part of the story that she's just not great at this. But nobody would do the stupid war plan that they did in this episode like that is just so impossible to believe. It's preposterous. What they did. I mean, I think that the plant the deal of them. Going ahead of the other army was forced perhaps by Sirius' attack. And the way that that changed the circumstances. They had to react to that. Which I think that's possible that she kills the drag. We're not there yet that she captures like. Oh, okay. Heiresses number advisor. Somehow they missed even though they have the we're gonna we're just okay. Let's keep going. Let's give. So anyways, that's kind of their strategy. Not. It's doesn't totally make sense splitting up, but I have to assume that it's because the bulk of their forces ground forces. They just have to walk down the kings read the narrow says they're going to win. Jamie says he's staying behind an RN sounds a pull John aside after the meeting, and they're like, dude, we need a word. Yeah. Jamie saying behind also makes no sense. Like, why would he ever do that? He's over it. I don't know anyways areas onset and brand on meeting the gods. I liked the scene because it's nice to see the remaining Starks together Jonah's making the case for for deniro are in Santa or extremely clearly not on board Brandon. He kind of exchanging meaning. Aloke and brand says it's your choice whether to tell them, and so Jon swears them to secrecy. And he starts to tell them. He's brand right, right? He says brand, and then we never see their reactions, which is I feel like they deprived of of this incredible moment to see our incense of reaction to this. And we didn't pisses me much the passage of this information was definitely it all took place offscreen, which is surprising because there's some good actors who got to learn this. And this would have been fun to how could we not get to see aria and Santon learn that their half brother who they've like are you especially as love John like like a like, a real brother, and like, suddenly they find out that he's actually their cousin and like he's the tar Garin, and it's like to not get to see that is man such a waste so many bad decisions from these hunters. Yeah, they had to fit a lot into eighty minutes. Next scene is Jamie interior of two more minutes to see our incense like getting stunned getting to act that out man. Of course. No. I'm not making excuses for them. Everybody finding out this whole whisper chain, but REM Santa come on. Sorry. I'll stop that's fine. Jamie interior, Tyrian meet up to talk before Tyrian sets out. They make some fairly tasteless jokes about Brienne. But a Tyrian does seem happy for Jamie. And then Baronne comes in swaggering Bron just shows up with his crossbow. He punches Tyrian in the face and make some jokes and recalls..
