"Jeremy also returned to Top Gear at the end of 2021 as he appeared in a special memorial episode for the recently deceased former co presenter Sabine schmitz. Jeremy Clarkson is a complicated figure. His career is filled with highs and lows, cringey foot and mouth moments and random, half assed apologies, yet he's the reason that we're here talking to you. He's responsible for opening up car culture to people in over 200 countries worldwide. There's no denying his importance to millions. Something that may be important to remember about Jeremy Clarkson is that he was ruthlessly bullied as a child. So it makes sense why he grew up to be a grumpy old guy with an anti authoritarian streak. He's a big believer in personal freedom, even though he spent the greater part of his career working for a partially government funded network who paid him a lot of money. Now, despite that, he believes that the government should build park benches and that's it. They should leave us alone. They paid you money. That's why perhaps that's the best way to enjoy Jeremy himself. To appreciate him for his contributions to the world of motors, but otherwise leave him alone. Also, the government pays for the roads that you drive on so you can shoot your show. Yeah, and especially in England, they subsidize a lot of the auto industry. I think he's a shithead who's really good at his job. Yeah. I think he's a little short sighted on a lot of things. Well, I think he's just a piece of shit. I think he's a huge piece of shit. Who's really good at one thing, and I don't think that that's enough to counteract balance. I think you have to really try and be a good person. As well as be good at talking about cars. And I think that because of Jeremy Clarkson, that's what we try and do here. And I think you get to a point when you're as big as him, where you're an authority on something as well. Where you kind of stop self assessing, and you're just like, I don't know, I feel like there's so many opportunities where he could have learned and grown as a person, where he was just so proud of himself. Pig headed. Yeah. Yeah. That he just didn't think to do it. So yeah, there's some lessons to be learned here. But she's ever done it. Yeah. All right, now we got some fan mail from Logan. I've been listening to past gas and loving it all since the first episode. And I've never had any criticism to give until I listened to the Danica Patrick episode. Everyone briefly praised Dale Earnhardt junior for being a great guy, which I would probably agree with if he hadn't hit on my mom. They both grew up. They both grew up in the same area of North Carolina and my mom worked as a cashier, which is the mid 90s. According to her, one day he came through her line and asked her out in a pretty cocky way. She politely turned him down, causing him to spiral into a do you know who I am bit? Anyway, that's my dealer and art junior story, nothing really came of it, but I thought someone at donut might get a kid. Yeah. We got a kick out of it. Wow. Well, thank you, Logan. Dang. Dale, junior. Bill Ginny, you know who I am? You know who I don't think I was like, it probably wasn't like a do you know who it's like, you know, they don't? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, something like that, maybe. I don't know. Anyway, she said I said yes. Yeah. You'd be writing to us from a large mansion. Hey, I'm writing to you from a giant helicopter. Anyway, thank you so much for that fan mail. Thanks for sticking with us since the first episode. Just think, thank you, Logan. Thank you, Logan. Thank you, Logan. And thank you listener for listening to this episode. This is a really fun one. I what a journey. Follow the boys on all social media at James pumphrey at Joji Weber, follow me at Nolan J Sykes. Thank you very much to our producers this week, Christina felski, and Gavin kinzel. And also, everyone who's worked on this show. Thank you to all the donut staff who have helped us along this long journey. I love you guys so much. I do. All right. You guys so much. I've never seen this

"Back and we've already talked a little bit about philanthropy. But I want to go deeper here because you've really done a lot of cool things, a lot of cool areas with schools with soccer fields and medical centers and all these different things. Have you ever thought about starting your own charity? Yeah, so I actually do have my own charity was the Tim Sykes foundation, but I felt a little weird where all the schools and all the buildings had my name on it and I was just like, I don't need this adulation. It became weirder and weirder. So actually changed the name of my charity to karmagawa, took on a partner, his name is Matt abad, he's a great photographer. He's Filipino. So if you're Filipino or you speak tagalog, which is their language, gawa means to do or to make. So we're basically going around the world, making good karma. Because now we support a bunch of different charities, actually 95 charities. So we're kind of, you know, I donate all my trading profits to charity. We have our own charity merch. Some of my educational DVDs go to charity. But we're kind of like this pass through charity where people can donate to us, but then we work with other charities we donate to them. We even have two documentaries made about saving the rhino and saving coral reefs because unfortunately as much as I want to just focus purely on schooling and education because I think that matters the most. That takes decades and a lot of animals and different issues don't have decades. It's all gonna be gone inside of the next decade if we're not careful. Now what would you say to our listeners who might want to take the reins on their own philanthropic notions? Like you have as well and maybe start their own charity. What would be your advice, your guidance, maybe steps that you took, lessons you learned? Yeah, I would look to intern or work for a big charity at first or a bigger charity rather than trying to go on your own.

"It's a narrative that's been dictated by them. And so you're just a pocket. Well, I'm not a copy. You're brilliant. That's what you are millennial Sykes. Speaking to Emma earlier this week. Now, sexual harassment in schools and among teenagers has become a major concern for campaigners and government officials alike. Earlier this year, an offset report which spoke to over 900 young people found that sexual harassment has become normalized for children in schools, presenters are McDermott's new BBC three documentary explores rape culture and what role the education system plays. Last week, I spoke to Zara, alongside two young women who feature in the documentary. Xan moon is the creator of screen grab them and Instagram page sharing screenshots of the inappropriate messages so many young women ascent and Trinity is 14. A close friend of Trinity's, took her own life earlier this year. Trinity's friend semena said she was raped. She reported it, but the boy disputed it. No DNA evidence was found and no charges were made. It's a heartbreaking story to hear, but it's really important that we do hear it. I started by asking Zara, why now felt like the right time to make this documentary? And she told me about an incident that happened to her four years ago. Zahra reported the assault, but the boy was never found, and no charges were made. So I made my first film revenge porn last year and had such an incredible response to that film. But I think revenge porn only told a very small part of a story of what's going on in our schools right now. You start from a really interesting point Zara, you start from your own experience of a sexual assault. That was very courageous of you to share that information at the beginning of this documentary. Why did you feel that was important? I think that the assault that happened to me, it really kind of shook me up a bit because I think in those situations as a woman, we should never feel unsafe, especially in broad daylight and you know, walking home, especially if there's a schoolboy behind me. I shouldn't feel unsafe. And in that situation where all the odds were with me in terms of my safety, it was broad daylight. I was close to my home. I still ended up being assaulted by this, you know, this, I would say it's around 15 years old..

"Robert you. I'm more miata. Gravity to technical difficulties then mailbag no mike. My question is. I hope that the party has a pathway away from trump and yet know i mean there's no bone in george bush's body that would normally align him with donald trump except for the pure politics of understanding that in order to get elected and continued the job of of being an elected official means. You have to suck up. So how does this feedback loop get broken. How does the hope that you have other than ten members of the house that were courageous enough to walk out on thin limb. But how does the republican. How does that circle get broken. If everybody looks at their own political map and says if i suck up i win if i don't i lose and so therefore i'm for sucking up. No no look first of all. Let me clarify the The optimist here the Little murphy sunshine. I knew the medication would wear off eventually at. Yeah no no. No you geyser. You're at the one hundred percent. And i still think there's a sliver of hope That's all i'm saying. And i'm clinging to that. I'm also irish. In his kipling said we are the raised. God made mad are wars role. Happy are songs are all sad. So even down do charlie crystal and is standing in the street with a pint of guinness and a stick of dynamite. Fight will continue as what we do. So i do hold up some hope you never ever ever give up. That said the current feedback loop is totally suck up to trump because you fear primary voters and nothing in life apparently is more important than a cheap haircut in the house barbershop. That is the current glue. That's holding the once-mighty gop together and it is a crime against history because we are opening up the gates to the left which in our conservative point of view was full of bad ideas and bad policy although plenty of good people. so we're we're we're we're selfishness is taking the place of what a lot of us who signed up for this long time ago. Used to call the cause. So how does that change it. Changes in a couple of ways one. The perception which in politics is always the reality of trump superpower diminishes. He's a crenshaw a josh hawley and none of this populism sour and evil and very disappointed in crenshaw but a kind of a trump light starts to take the place generation. Lee is trump gets older by the way i have a friend. Who's an insurance actuary. He's like relax. about trump. computer says three point two years town to have more meatloaf so you know the one thing we know about politics is it's always changing and so i think there could be a trump declined based on health. I think there could be a trump declined based on going to jail. I think there could be a trump declined based on new. Mini trump competition going forward elections or about the future. And i think we're gonna find out that this perception that being if you don't do it trump says will kill you and your primary. That is the current acquision. That's driving him may be disproven a fair amount of times in in the midterm elections. Coming up the primary season that to me is the last great battle to find out but right now absolutely the perception is trump. is god therefore do what god wants for eighty five percent of these guys jail and genetics aside the if trump runs in twenty twenty four. Where are you where both of you is. He the nominee. Yeah front runner. I'm not sure is the nominee again. I think he's the nominee. I don't know that anybody is Any of the The successors are willing to stand up against him. And i think that it's going to be you know by by default that he's going to be the nominee you'll even though you know the usual suspects same people in two thousand fifteen were whispering. This can happen. Don't worry you know. Something will come up and i was one of them. I didn't think he'd win the nomination. The pimple did and then we had the moment but on that is to elizabeth this way what we know now he could be a big factor and could be the nominee. But there's a lot to happen now. i. I'm kind of intrigued by this bond villain thing now. Some radio talk show guy. No offense A much Less polished and impressive Version of that once noble profession Suggested and this is actually so insane. It's intriguing trump parachutes into a congressional district knocks off the local charlie bag a donuts. Glad hander and gets himself in a safe district elected to congress in florida which he could do then he goes a caucus and they've won based on redistricting. They got six vote lead though him. Doing this would affect the election because it would make it by him. And he gets like the speaker you know there you go pelosi handing the gavel to trump. How's that for your dream journal. Robert the one thing i would say is just. Don't tell trump. You don't actually have to be a member of the house to be speaker. I mean i told you not to say that we know yeah. You know. it'll be interesting to see. I mean i. I i i think it will be fascinating over the next year and a half is whether or not does trump have the discipline. Toe run a party without the apparatus to run a party. See that's a good question. And i'm still struck by this idea that he lows lisa murkowski but there was that report a few months ago that like he keeps saying he's gonna go to alaska but he's told his advisors. It's a really long flight right. It's sort of like it is a really long vine. It's beautiful state. But yeah that's a good question. But don't count on the jail thing just quitting him from running I don't see any of these indictments doing anything other than strengthening his hand in the republican party. The way things are right now. The melia the deeds. Dander out to get me right right. I and run against a conviction. I work for a candidate who was running for governor essentially because he thought if he was elected they wouldn't prosecute him because it was kinda minor offence but eventually he He went to jail And then got out a guy like a lot is record this Everyone should understand. We've got some interesting primaries tonight. Or maybe not so interesting. Primaries in virginia north and new jersey legislative elections gubernatorial elections down ballot stuff. Keep your eye on that And i do think and we didn't get into this but we maybe can get into this a little bit next week because You know both. The president vice president spending a considerable amount of time outside of the country over the next seven days. Kamla harris in in central america mexico and of course biden going to The uk for the g. seven And then to brussels for nato meetings before going to switzerland and looking into the soul of vladimir putin let me tag vice president harris thing with one bidder right wing republican observation about the media. She is appropriately gone to guatemala to address the immigration crisis. And she said well there don't come here Which is a message that needs to be heard but if a republican had flown there and said don't come here. We would have seven days of hysterical media coverage of the native ism of the republican party. There is a double standard okay. They got that off my chest. I get to be republican for a minute and a half year before we go back to damning trump and his fear of long flights to alaska. Exactly the kind of man still you office. For god's sakes it's not like he's it's not like he's in a middle seat and row thirty two of alaska airlines for god's sakes no it's funny okay. One one quick story. True story when i was Working on the bush campaign the president h w i made this big play To get president. Bush george h w bush to go on johnny carson's final show to thank him with four hundred thousand ratings And ails was up for it and the carson producers were interested in it and we went through the campaign system and they're big quite well. We don't have an l. a. Message because of the riots and it's a long flight. I like you fly a house not a plane and it's the biggest thing on television this decade. And we're not gonna do it because we don't have a impromptu message to stop on the way at a convenience store were frayed. We're gonna ask about the la riots. That was the machine that reelected that. Good good man. That i was proud to work for anyway. Why.

"The other thing that puzzles me. We're talking about this whole narrative of the democrats in disarray and and how the democratic agenda is is really in trouble because of this one center. Meanwhile the former president and perhaps future president united states is telling people he might be reinstated into the presidency in august. And i guess the question is how come. Democrats have not hung around single republican. Senators neck. That here you have a party. That is all in on a man who is completely crazy. Who is listening to my pillow guy. We find out over the weekend that the white house was pressuring the department of justice to investigate bat. Shit crazy theories about the election being flipped from somebody satellites in from italy or something like that and yet republicans are like joined at the hip with this guy and yet and yet they're not being held to the fire on all of this. I mean it's it is i. Maybe because i'm ways is watching the republican party just on fire with absolute insanity. Do rain delusional thoughts. And we're all going. What's with mansion over here. I i mean what. At what point should mitch mcconnell be at every single day. Or why are they not putting resolutions on the floor. Saying can we just put everybody on the record that You know about the election about these lies. Whatever i mean. Republicans are better at sort of fixating on your like you know. Hang on like a pit bull on granny when they wanna make an issue when they want to advance think. I'm just not seeing that with the democrats. Part of it is editing. The democrats understand their governing window may be small and and they've they've got to spend a lot of time. The midterms are looming. Yeah i do think the best democratic boogeyman is still donald trump. And i think whether or not he gets Brought out and made such in june of twenty twenty one. I don't know. I can assure you by june twenty twenty two you will. You will think watching democratic ads. That he's not only been reinstated but he's wearing a crown. So i i definitely think that is That's coming because i think there's nothing that rallies quite frankly both sides quite like donald trump. There's it still is the the biggest motivating factor on one side to get out in the biggest motivating factor to prevent and therefore to get out in boats. So i do think you'll see a lot of that. Trump is his reemergence. We we're not going to get into whether or not add his pants on right but Yeah that is an interesting that video. Let me just interject thing on the dams. Then we're move onto the orange. Menace biden is suffering a little bit like wired the dem so fractious as charlie says versus or pubs it as look the other way trump like smears goat blood on his face and screams. The thing is biden is suffering from the political problem of coalition narcissism. Which is every group in. The democratic party. Thinks they are the ones who got biden elected so therefore they deserve to get everything they want and so the progressive stink that and that is embolden them to make demands and they have enough voices in the caucuses to make trouble. I think biden's in for more and more trouble on that front because they just feel that empowered. It's a real challenge. And i think that's right. I think the challenge will ultimately be as i mentioned that governing window might be small and the question is do you wanna post some wins and make some progress a happy or do you want to Do you want an issue to go into an election that you might come out and not have the ability to to to to do and i do think look i mean. We've talked about this for a while. Fifty fifty was always going to be tough and understanding that the likelihood even even at the very beginning of the year that the filibuster was going to disappear. The likelihood of that was really really really small. And i will say i all this commentary. I see on twitter of like you know. Well joe biden would just tell people we're going to get rid of the filibuster there was. I was reading. something on. Twitter almost broke my phone with somebody. Said you know joe if if joe biden would have gone west. Virginia the first day and sat down with joe manchin. We'd have we'd have gotten rid of the filibuster. And i'm like please write. It would like hang up your twitter license. If you think that's actually would've well. It shows you how brilliant the founding fathers were because they saw twitter coming. They thought all right. Let's built the senate so half the country fifty votes can't immediately invite the queen back and go crazy so the senate is designed to slow down the mob and twitter is the mob. I mean look. I get the the passion around. The filibuster is it's exercise now. Not as it was either. You know any remote intention but again i think it it. Democrats progressives moderates conservative democrats. Whatever are all going to have to again. Come to the conclusion and particularly this summer around. What's your appetite for getting something done. What is your. what's your appetite for. This may not be fdr but it can still be pretty good. I've mentioned to to democrats you know we. There's there's always you know ten years on. There's still hand wringing about the affordable care act in obamacare sign ups now over thirty one million people getting health insurance through obamacare so sometimes these things age better than they do As charlie said on.
"sykes" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"Because they're so many small things you can blow up in a campaign. But what and charlie if you heard anything about there's also the secret team of ours indeed were talking. I mean if it does fall apart do you think the republicans will stay fold junkyard dog or the yet another final final thing a different group of characters. And what what. What's your kinda. Take on the psychology of the gop. Right now in this. Well if you have to bet y'all on the junk dog you you better. That's the default. The default setting there. But i agree with you but simply because it makes sense logically doesn't mean it is necessarily going to happen in this environment. Then we're doing. I assume that there are four. Five six republicans that might go along with this To be able to do it. But i don't know how again i am starting to being this but how the democrats are going to react to this whether the media is going to see this as a biden haven whether you're going have msnbc than have one progressive after another saying you know you've given veto power to these republicans at people like joe manchin. This is a sign of weakness wheels. Come up until the the messaging on this is going to be very complicated. It strikes me for the biden folks. Because they're gonna have to fend off the usual attacks the junkyard dogs. And whatever is in the packaged. Even if it's clean package you're going to get that criticism and then you're gonna get criticism from the left which one of the hundred and ten percent so it's going to be. It will be a considerable challenge. I by the way completely agree that actually getting a trillion dollar package through where it looks like. It is roads bridges and tangible. Thanks that's gonna play well outside in in the country because believe it or not here. In wisconsin we still think of a trillion. Dollars is an awful lot of money. We don't we. Don't think of that as half alone. I mean a trillion dollars. You know that that adds up. That's that's a significant Expenditure but that's just me here in the mid west. I like to call at one quarter of the cost of world war two. Well that in people terms all.
"sykes" Discussed on Hacks on Tap with David Axelrod and Mike Murphy
"Hey pull up a chair. Attacks on tap with david axelrod robert gibbs and mike murphy added i think this is a reminder of how much we depend on these assets and reminder that it costs money to to look after these things but if you ever find yourself wondering can we afford a big investment in the future of infrastructure. Just remember what happens. If one of those critical assets is not available. Hey murphy hey mister gibbs we sound like a vaudeville act. Well you know i mean. I think we should take this show on the road Well cain the shuffle off to buffalo in what it used to be but i'm willing to Sharpen it up a little. So what's going on. I could see dozens of tickets moving for that You know. I think i should update you. That infrastructure week is is leaking a little bit into infrastructure months maybe infrastructure infrastructure year infrastructure decade Yes we are Before you know it will have the final final final meeting of infrastructure. That is one of the topics that we want to get into With our guest today murphy. We have an outstanding guest a hero a hero of the conservative cause winner of the murphy proclaimed burke award for being an all around good guy and a leader in the world. I'm talking about charlie sykes who joins us today. He is editor at large. Which i i like that title because implies you can kinda call in from nairobi or anything. I'm editing out. Here of the bulwark. I hear of wisconsin. Legend in wisconsin. Thoughtful talk radio and the author one of my favorite books. How the right lost its mind. You also hosts the bulwark podcast. Which we hardly recommend. Charlie welcome to on tap a good to be back. Well here we are here. We are three brave souls a crazy world. I guess we should start as robert did with a mention. I think today were recording. This on tuesday is are officially our third final meeting. You know the great washington kabuki slowly. I turn step by step. This is it this is the yesterday. Was it memorial day. Was it now. Today is it. Was senator shelley moore capito and let me do a hat tip by the way just as we get into the topic. What a great name for a senator. It hearkens back to like a good old school name. Thirty years ago she would have been a he and it would have been something like you know. Harlan big data capito from louisiana. So she is an effective legislator. And i think good faith. Negotiations with president biden are going on but looks like they aren't there yet. what do we think. And what do we think will happen. Or what are the politics of it. All i mean what's strange to me is we are in like the third overtime of these talks and if you read the news. It appears as if there's not an agreement on what the parameters of infrastructure are There's no real agreement on the level of spending and there's no agreement on the pay fors But other than that the talk show so i it reminds me of. I think the music has stopped. The song is stopped playing. And nobody's really sure Had a decoupled this and figure out if you decouple it it. Does that make you the loser i i. I do think it will be interesting to watch again. I'm less may be concerned about what happens in the meeting. And what said after the meeting Is she seemed a little pessimistic and reports last night that this was going to get done to the satisfaction of Of a bipartisan agreement. I guess i'm i'm puzzled about a number of things. Actually i'm perpetually puzzle but but one of them is that you know the infrastructure deals should have been the easiest deal but nothing is coming easy and You you you look at the things that are getting jammed up right now you know. Election reform infrastructure reform. There ought to be some sort of a bipartisan center. On all of this. But i think it's it's indication of our time that that nothing is happening and i have to say that i i'm i'm not sure. Look i mean mitch. Mcconnell has made it very clear he's going to continue to be an obstructionist but it would seem not impossible for the biden folks to have come up with a package that could have gotten them five seven republican votes But maybe maybe not This this this deal is obviously not gonna come up with with sixty votes and joe manchin continues to be the master of washington. Dc would he really kill an infrastructure bill. If it didn't have any bipartisan support. I don't know what you guys thing with. The actual would actually vote against it. Well i call me little murphy sunshine here. Because i'll be slightly more the slightly more outlaws. Hold on hold on here. Everyone listening take a deep breath. Murphy is going to be optimistic here. Go ahead well. I i like to imagine what ought to be and try to work toward it. I think biden is more incentivized to do a trillion dollar deal. The republicans are at about nine hundred. Seventy five billion right now or as washington would call it spare change but historically that is the biggest infrastructure deal ever. And if i'm biden i'm thinking just politically here. I would rather get that trillion dollar deal and cut some ribbons. Because i look forward see morass. I can't count on mansion unless says rahm emanuel hinted in last time We we had a mind that maybe he's got a mansion commitment on some of the big social spending by reconciliation stuff in his back pocket..
"sykes" Discussed on The Daily Beans
"Who's kind of got his back up against the wall on all of this. But i actually wish that a you didn't ask but i i. I wish that at least a handful of the republicans would also say look. This is this is unsustainable. What we're doing here in i. There's a there's a small caucus of republicans that were willing to vote to impeach and remove donald trump and the bar him from office and i keep thinking in. This is in my wheel searching for a unicorn if two or three of them would say you know what we're gonna form kind of an independent centrist caucus a good government caucus and we will vote with the democrats on some of the stuff including in the filibuster for things like democracy. I think that would be incredibly positive development. I don't see that happening. But if you would have a handful of those reps of the seven you start with seven. Senators seven the seven and you work from that because and that was that was bet. Took some guts on their part if you're going to do that you know if you're gonna pull the trigger on impeachment then why wouldn't you pull the trigger on something like this to to make sure that that sort of thing does not happen again. Yeah i mean if you could get portman sas murkowski to to come with us to kill the filibuster then. You don't need cinema and mansion. But i don't actually know how many democrats there might be more than just the two of them that i don't know that are against that input that we haven't heard headcount which i think is weird. Why don't we know but you know if you can get enough to come over at least a key to carve out that filibuster just one thing you know because they think voting rights are important. That might be the best way to go to overcome the deficit of democrats. Who don't want to get rid of the filibuster i. I don't wanna rape falls hopes. This is ever going to happen because used to being disappointed by republicans but this. This is an important point to make that. If you're talking about the filibuster in the abstract it becomes kind of a what is the nature of the senate what should minority rights but when it becomes very specific you know. Do you want to have a voting rights act or do not wanna voting rights act. It has completely different salience and in in the impact. And that's kind of. I think maybe for somebody like joe. Manchin it ju-. It just needs to come to that point because because again remember. Republicans did not have this agonizing debate. About what would james madison. Think of us if we eliminated the filibuster. They just said we want a supreme court justice so fucking. We're going to eliminate the filibuster for the because we want. The we want the supreme court justice Yeah and i think that there are considerable amounts of republican senators who would actually benefit from a voting rights. Act because you know they're they're taking away mail in voting there. I call it the long shanks strategy. You know when they bring the archers forward and he goes but are we gonna hit our own men and he says yeah but we'll hit them to and and i think republicans are kind of hope banking on trump's side. Republicans are banking on the fact that it will disenfranchise more democratic voters than republican voters. But i know that there are republicans in the senate that are upset by the fact that they're targeting mail in voting a lot of ways that that republicans vote as well. So i think that that that they stand to gain something from that too and i think that by pinpointing that. I think you're right. That would be a lot easier than just get everybody to come along on a on a on the john. Lewis voting rights act for example or or to get rid the filibuster fully. Yes well charlie. It's been really really really great talking to you. Thank you so much. I want everyone to listen to everybody. Get the book how the right lost its mind. Is there anything else you want to say before we get out of here. No i just think that this is one of those things that are that i hope people are open to making alliances with people. You probably would not have ever wanted to be associated with in the past because there is this very very strange moment and i and i will say you know. I have not embraced all of these progressive call. But i do think that there's a moment where we all have to reevaluate. No what we what we believed in What we thought was important in the past and one of the things that i found is that i may disagree with you about six out of ten issues. Maybe eight out of ten.

"I am happy so happy to be joined today. By the host of the bulwark and author of the book. How the right lost its mind. Please welcome charlie sykes charlie. Thanks for being here with me today. Thank you looking forward to it. I think this is going to be a really interesting discussion because first of all. Can you tell everybody a little bit about your background because you know normally on this show. We have a lot of democrats. I'll just go ahead and say it. So i'm very excited to talk to you today about the future. The republican party tell us a little bit about your background. Well it's it's a mixed background per for about twenty-three years. I was a conservative radio. Talk show host in wisconsin. I never really thought of myself as a republican. Because i'm not really joiner. I'm an only child. So i don't worker play well with others But i think it's safe to say that. I was a conservative and was very much part of what i thought was the conservative movement until the soul crushing experience twenty. Fifteen and twenty sixteen. Where as i'm looking around. I'm beginning to realize that i thought i understood what conservatism was. I thought i understand. I understood what the movement actually believed in but if they were prepared to embrace the orange god king than than obviously i was in in error so I would. I would describe myself. These days is a political orphan. Excommunicated from the right and At least for the time being somewhat homeless. Yeah we could. We talk a lot on this show about mr. What do old guard republicans or conservatives do where do they go because you know. I'm i'm gen xer so the discussions back in the day that we would have debates about conservative people versus democrats are liberals etc was mostly focused on fiscal conservativeness and cut up deregulation making it easier to run businesses smaller government etc. And like you said and you know your book how the right lost. Its mind which. I want to ask you about here in a second. That is taken a it. Seems like a hard left. Turn but it's kind of been a time coming. Well it has been. And this is one of things that i had to wrestle with. Is you know what was what was real. And what wasn't real In in in in republican politics or in conservative politics. They claimed that they cared very deeply about certain things like for example fiscal restraint that they were have then prepared to jettison almost instantaneously on achieving power I'm old enough to remember when the conservative mantra was. You know character matters number that back in the nineteen in the in the nineteen nineties and of course This is now a party. That's embraced a man of obviously no character whatsoever. You embrace a serial liar conman and you go. Yeah we're fine with that. Let's put him in the oval office. Yeah and so now. What kind of if you could. Maybe summarize. I know it's a lot. But what like what is going on with because what i'm seeing from at least my side of the aisle. We've got kind of two republican parties. Now we've got the trump republican party. And then we've got liz cheney and mitt romney and kind of a susan collins depending on how concerned she is on any given day murkowski et cetera. Sort of splintering off.
What Does Authenticity Even Mean? With Journalist Pandora Sykes
"I was so interested to read your take on authencity. Can you tell us a little bit. More about panera. So i subscribe to the idea that where not just oneself that we're compilation of selves. And so those kind of selves. The self that you present depends on who you're with say your family will see oneself. Your love will see another self people you work with another one. The barista coffee shop for the guy at sainsbury's is going to see a different one and so on and so forth. The thing that i think is kind of fascinating about our obsession with authenticity. Because as you say it's a buzzword now and i also agree don't bring your whole self to work. You need to have some stuff. That's not at work. That's just your own but the problem with the obsession with with anticipate is the because so much of our life is now distilled into online technically in the last year. The internet does not allow and social media. Profiles does not allow for this compilation of selves. You sort of have to pick one so that it makes sense. And i think that's why people got themselves really tangled in not because when that's your primary way to relate to the world as it has been in the last year it can make you feel like you're being inconsistent other people. I don't know if you've noticed this all nodes people saying well. That's really unlike her or she posted this. I didn't really think she stood for ordinary. She was into that. And it depends what medium. You're using but i think what's happened is on twitter. You see something that the writer james mumford called package deal ethics this idea that you subscribe to a set of beliefs. If you believe one thing he believed to another you believe in another thing which i think is really dangerous. You know this idea that everyone on the left believes this ever on them. Right believes this because then that just how on earth do you meet in the middle of just kind of tick tick tick to all the same things and then on instagram. I think what it means is. There's just so much judgment around washy dressing. I thought she liked dressing modestly. Like what washy doing. not now. That's not her. Because i was talking about before down and i'm like well she's going through as i find that really weird and found it the way. It was equated to feminism. But i guess i've ever think everything is about feminism. Just because things about

I often say talk like be authentic and transparent and how this process has been for you so if it's been difficult and you've been kind of mulling over this for a couple of weeks or a couple of months it's okay to state that to allow the person to know. This wasn't a split decision. This isn't something that i just woke up today and wanted to throw you out. You know this is something that actually thought about. I was intentional about and being able to allow. that can also allow the other person's. I have a clean break right because oftentimes people want to come back and say but did you think about that.

The Racing Family that Death Couldnt Stop
"Welcome back everyone to pass gas As always. I'm your host, Nolan Sykes joined by my friends. One Joe Weber. What's up? And I'm sorry, I'm trying I'm trying to bring the energy, but this is also a very somber script already, and so I want to be entertaining Bhai also want to. Honor respectful. Done that. Be Entertaining, but respectful. And James. Humphrey. You hear him talking now. To, two. The river. All right anyway. gas. So today's are two part our second part of our story on the Isle of Man. T T we're talking about the Dunlop family, are you guys ready to get into it I? Am I think I just want to point out I. Think you're man is the one of the six nicknames I've ever? That's a great and I said well good. It's so it means it means you're a nice guy. It. Yet. It's a rare nickname that sounds really cool. But it also means you're Nice Kylie. Guy that the go-to guy whenever anything needs to be done. Man He's your man. Love it. Great. Start to great episode. Let's dive into it when Marjorie and Ian Forest and their twin teenage sons moved to their house on Douglas Road on the isle. Of Man. One. Of the things they look forward to was the opportunity to watch the legendary I'll of man tourist trophy races from their front yard after all, it's not every day that you can watch the best road racers in the world. Take a corner, your corner in front of your house at speeds of over one hundred, twenty miles an hour. Unfortunately, the forest family had no idea what they were in for on a practice day in two, thousand five, they heard a crash outside Yawkey Carlson, a Swedish racer had run into their gate and flipped into their garden. The Swede was severely injured. Medics rushed to the scene, but there was nothing they could do Carlson's name joined the two, hundred, fifty plus other men who had died on the t course. The horror didn't end there though officials told the forest family that was to logistically challenging to delay the practice and move Carlson's body instead who Carlson was zipped into a body bag on the Front Garden for ninety minutes as the road marshals waited for practice to end, all the garrisons could do was closed their curtains and forbid their sons from looking outside. We'll I got. Doubts pretty awful. there's no way around it. Motorcycle racing is dangerous. Even riding a motorcycle daily traffic puts you at risk of dying in a crash twenty, nine times higher than that. If you were in a car at the same time, motorcycle riders and racers understand that danger. In fact, it's part of what draws them to the sport. Unfortunately, there's no real way around risking your life unlike cars where technology has greatly improved safety and driver protection motorcycle crashes, you're basically experiencing the equivalent of a no seatbelt through the windshield accident every single time. And as dangerous as motorcycle racing is the Isle of. Man. T he stands out as a full degree of magnitude more dangerous than the rest. First of all public road courses like the Isle of Man were writers have to contend with what they call the furniture. That's sick. They're talking about telephone poles, ditches, garden walls. These are much more dangerous than closed circuit courses or dirt bike riding and racing. While those races do see fatal accidents there hasn't been a deadly crash in a speedway race since twenty sixteen and in the twenty years before that, there is an average of less than one year similarly motocross raced at much lower speeds also sees lower fatalities unlike public road races. These courses are designed with plenty of room to minimize danger to the writers. So if Motorcycle Race Games skydiving public road courses are like base. Base jumping in a wing suit taken an already dangerous activity and bringing it as close to the edge as possible. However, even among public road races, the Isle of Man is easily the most dangerous in the twenty seven years. The T T was part of the World Grand Prix, championship thirty, six racers died on the isle. Of Man. Obviously. More than one year. In comparison at Imatra, there were two fatalities in sixteen years at Hockenheim, three deaths in twenty six years. The second deadliest race after the man was a circuit day SPA francorchamps which. Baby Franker Jam Cams, which saw ten deaths in thirty five years making the Isle of Man and average four times deadlier than even the second most deadly race.

Do to this, I decided to do something special for all the Trans castors. I have put together a pride scenes each day in the month of June. You will get a new episode with me interviewing an amazing transversal. These episodes will be full of inspiration and Pry I. Hope you all have an amazing, cried month and enjoy the series. Hey Trans casters today. I Have Rachel Sykes a fifty year old trans woman from Hinesville Georgia. She is retired military after spending twenty three years and two days in the army, during which time she was a cavalry scout for fifteen and a half years the rest of the time she spent as an IT specialists. She graduated with an associate of science degree in hospitality management, and then went on to get her bachelor's of Science Degree in criminal justice with a minor in computer programming Rachel has been out as a transgender woman for about a year and a half, and been on hormones for about a year. He Rachel. How are you today? All Right? How about yourself? I am fantastic. Thank you for being here today I. Appreciate it. No problem is why pleasure. So, let's get right into our topic. What does pride mean to you? Let's see pride. were, cell. Is All about how you feel about yourself. To be a presents a positive emmet. Even taking on negativities, and finding a way to transmute it into positive energy for yourself, and to be unapologetically apologetically yourself. And we have known each other for very long, but we've known each other for a while and I think at least every time I interact with you, Youtube Pride. It just comes out of your pores It's just you have such prideful energy, and you just you know you're. You. You're one of those people that if I was putting a pride together I would want you. As my the person at the very front of the pride parade. Because you just you just exude pride. Thank you? So has pride changed for you since you've transitioned like what it means to you. Has It changed at all since you transitioned? Yes has I started out. In my life not so with pride. But later on especially after I started transitioning. It has become forefront in my life at it is totally integrated in everything I do. Yeah I think that Kinda was for me. Even though I came out as a lesbian was younger at Fifteen I. Don't think I quite embraced You know my myself in an pride in what pride stands born till I came out as Trans Guy because. I. Think it had to do with the fact that I was hiding it for so long you know I didn't understand. Trans was when I was younger. It wasn't talked about I. Mean Queer People Are. I mean I? Had A my grandma's brother is gay, but talking about Queer people with never something that was talked about so i. just might the way I see pride now and my interactions with leg, pride, celebrations and stuff like that has definitely changed over time. and. I'm wondering with you. You know you're you're came out later in life, so you know the how Queer people and Trans people are seen you know is is is different than it was when you were a teenager. So how has that changed? How did that have any effect on you coming out when you did or Were you just at a point in your life when it was like okay this I can't. Hide in the causing. Right it was. Quite a bit the Lleida It was something that As I, the closer I get to retirement I'd say within the especially within the. In the. Two years, two or three is a preceding retirement. It would have gotten to a point where I knew it was coming out and it had to be. It was something that I went ahead and said okay. I'm not fighting this. I'm going to just. Let Myself Blossom. And Live my life. As choose. Because late earlier in my life, especially when I was growing up. transgender was not a word that we had that time where I was. It was more of. Jay. Bian. The had? The word that today, still to this day I cannot stamp people using transvestite. Both. Great. because like one thing they did heavily growing up. That word was associated with had a files flashers. And so it was it was. Very demeaning. and. It wasn't until much later life as time passed on, and things ruled long the way that the were transgender. Came around. And it to me. Wild understand that that's what I was and. I'm happy I am. Yeah and I. Actually was just having this conversation with somebody else about that word and how? Even, though you know, I'm. I'm younger than you. I still think that that's a derogatory word. I know that there are some trans people that use it that prefer to use it some very well-known trans. People in the community but I. Just you know it goes back to now. I embrace the word Queer, but there's a lot of older people of the you know of the Lgbtq community that. Queer when they were younger and growing up in their twenties was a derogatory word. You know so I you know I I just don't agree with that specific term. I just think and I, think they. That word has been used in like the movie scene to depict you know. Extra Trans People Especially Trans Women in a very. Very very bad light and I. Just so I I much prefer the term transgender over over that term. Has You know you live in the south? I live in Florida but It's still it's a little different than the the. The deep South like where you live in Georgia so. You know and. Unfortunately we right now I mean racism and the fact that Trans Women of color are getting murdered you know faster than we can do anything to stop it right now. Do you ever fear for your life living in the south. At one point I did like I..

"Turned upside down. Listen for free on apple podcasts. spotify or your favorite podcast player there. This year Bernardine Evaristo became the first black woman to win the Booker Prize for fiction. She won her eighth novel called Girl Woman other by the way in another first evaristo was one of two winners of this year's Booker Margaret Atwood was also given the prize for the testaments her sequel to a handmaid's handmaid's tale up until now evaristo novels. Many of which are written in a mix of verse and prose have not been well known in this country our book critic Maureen Corrigan says that all changed with the American publication last month of girl woman. Other here is Maureen Review. Bernardine gene ever restos Booker Prize. Winning Novel Girl Woman other is structured around the opening night of play called the last Amazon of to Homey. It's written by a woman named Ama- who's made a name for herself mostly in radical lesbian experimental theater but this new play about African women warriors in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is debuting not in some fringe theatre space but at the mainstream mainstream National Theatre in London. It turns out to be a hit at the after party. One of Amazon's friends expresses relief to himself. Alf that this new play is a far cry from the agitprop rance of her early theater. Career as a reader I shared shared his relief. Let me explain girl. Woman other is described as a polyphonic novel about the intersections of identity. It's told from the point of view of twelve British women of color who range in age from nineteen to ninety three. The women represent a diversity of classes cultures and sexual identities evaristo presents their stories in a free flowing fragmented style that she calls fusion fiction. All of which can make girl woman other sound like if not agitprop a call to duty rather than pleasure. The opening does little to alleviate this worry given in that it focuses on Ama- and her teenage daughter Yeahs both of whom Bask in self righteousness but as the novel moves along long. Something wonderful happens. Humor materializes as seriously as ever restores characters take themselves and the issues issues like racism that intrude on their lives. There's also a witty dimension to their stories. Many of these women are onto themselves and each other girl woman other turns out to be a nuanced and entertaining novel about women of Color in contemporary Britain. Even though some of Evaristo characters harbor fantasies of Amazon girl power most are just trying to make it through the Battle of daily life. Take Carol one of these foot soldiers born in London to Nigerian immigrants. She survives a rough school school and a traumatic gang rape to earn a scholarship to Oxford so far this is familiar first generation up from poverty. Thirty story but listen to this description of Carroll's first week at Oxford made all the more arresting by the repetitive rhythm of Evaristo is run on sentences. She overheard loud reminiscences about the dorms and Drugs of Boarding School Christmas holidays in Goa gap years spent building a school for the poor in Kenya. Most students weren't like that. But the really posh ones were the loudest and the most confident and they were the only voices she heard. Nobody talked loudly about growing up in a council flat on a skyscraper estate with a single mother who worked as a cleaner. Nobody talked loudly about. Never having been on a plane seen a play or the C- or eaten in a restaurant with waiters. There's lots more but that incantatory hinted Tori catalogue of all that's left out. Shines a light on. All the people like Carol who are left out to. Where's is that humor? I was talking about. You may be wondering well. It arises in the marathon response of Carroll's Nigerian mother to her announcement that she's going to drop out of Oxford. Here's a snippet did me. And Papa come to this country for a better life if only to see our daughter giving up on her opportunities and end up distributing paper hand towels for tips in nightclub toilets or her concert venues as the fate of too many of our country. Women bested Carol returns to Oxford now now an adult. She's present at that. Opening night of Amazon play so is her old high schoolteacher who turns out to be a childhood friend of Obama's in this highly design novel. Almost everybody is just a couple of degrees of separation apart. Whenever Hristo won this year's Booker Prize along with Margaret Atwood for her novel the testaments a controversy erupted because was only one novel is supposed to be anointed? Most critics think that evaristo novel should have won. If forced to choose. I'd Agree Eh. But there's a lot of overlap between Atwood and Evaristo both have such a zest for storytelling. Both are proudly feminist in their politics. What a year to get to such novels? I say. Do yourself a favor and read them. Both Maureen Corrigan teaches literature. Georgetown University she reviewed girl woman other by Bernardine Evaristo on Monday. Show our guest. I will be actress. Charlene Darren who stars as former Fox News anchor.

"Let's get back to Terry's conversation from earlier this year with writer actress and stand up Comic Wanda Sykes. She's she's been doing comedy about President Trump and about being an African American lesbian and married to a Frenchwoman. They have to white children you. Actually he came out during an anti prop eight rally right came out publicly right. How did you as the opportunity to do it well? I didn't. I didn't even know that I was going to do. It wasn't planned at all. I was in Vegas performing at I. Think Planet Hollywood night. Show that night and there was the the National Day of protests and the LGBT Center in Vegas they were holding a rally so oh like hey let's let's go let's go out and and support and protests so I get there and some you know large crowd and in the head of the The center she's speaking and she said you know we have someone out here who's an ally and she's bossom a strong voice for the community and I'm just GonNa put on response if she will come up and say a few words now. I'm looking around in the audience. They and Drew Barrymore here his peak he was going on. You know I'm looking around for the ally and then she said Wanda Sykes I'm like. Oh no I'm I'm part of the family. I'm not the ally okay so I go up and it just it just was it just happened and I You know made the speech and then when I We started the the marsh. My friends were there were they. You know you just came out as a like. Yeah I'll say oh I I guess I did you know. My wife was the era we went on with the March and then when I got home to back to the hotel room I should say back to tell room looking at CNN. And now I'm I'm on the crawl and as I go boy we're guess I did. What did you say that was the official coming out? I said I'm proud to be black. A woman in gay so once the crawl had CNN. What what happened next in your life? A lot of text messages My publicist called say. Congratulations and then. She was proud of me and she said that was the perfect way to do it. what else. Yeah a lot a lot of just a lot of very supportive phone calls and it. It took my parents awhile to Jump on board is that have they. They found out or did you tell them no. I had already had the conversation station with them but I remember my mother specifically asking me not to do that not to be be public while she was still alive. What it how do you handle that because your life is yours and there's a fight to be fought and you wanted to be part of it but I'm sure you also wanted to respect your mother? So what do you honor do honor like the LGBTQ movement. Do you honor your own sexuality. Do you honor your wife or suppress all that for a while while your mother still alive and honor your mother he I mean it was. It was hard and deep down deep down. I look look added as I am. I am honoring my mother because I'm a product of my parents and my parents and still these values in this strength in me and so for me to deny who I am and to be silent then I think that that's that would be dishonoring them because that's not the person that they you know made me to be so I you know I had that conversation with them from that angle and I you know eventually they got it and now you know we're we're so close and everything is great. They're they're amazing as in grandparents And you know I think nailed there could sern is more for my safety safety than anything else. I'm really glad to hear that things are good between you thank you. Do you think your mother was more surprised than she might have. Been 'cause you in the nineties you we're married to a man for several years I think so. Yeah I can see how that could be misleading Bayton switch. It didn't did. We did religion figure into her response when she didn't want you to come out publicly and when she was really upset that you were gay. Religion is Ed's It's grounded in everything that they do so absolutely yeah. Did you go to church a lot when you were young. Yes yes rows young you know teenage years there was a one point when they we we we had just moved and I found a church before they. They did and So I was you know so I got them to go back to church at I I still I still go to church Not that often. But there's a church that I love in Los Angeles ageless and So when I'm you know when I'm in La and I try to make it there You know I I read the Bible and more more more so spiritual writings and stuff like that So Yeah I you know I I. Eileen with with love That no I'm doesn't mean I'm vote for Marianne Williamson but US She makes some great point. You make some great point auto. She did this. She was going to write a check so I don't know that. Check sound pretty good reparations rations check. I don't know Sir your wife is French. She's y you have two children who are white and you joke about how you're living in a house house with white people and you're a minority in your own home. So that's that's very funny but I'm sure there's some truth to that too. Is it unusual for you it to be in your own home and be like the racial minority in your own family. It is it is. It's it feels weird art when I think about it but now when it's just the you know just the four of us then if I I don't think I think of it then but it's like when her her family is there or You know we have a bunch of friends over. I do you kind of look around and I go. There's a lot of white people in my house right and it's not like I don't like it or or it makes me uncomfortable. Comfortable is just I noticed it. You know and it's like wow okay as sometimes I'll I'll call. I'll call a friend. Hey man what you doing you WanNa come over Eddie heels. Well you got so many white people in your house. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Had you considered motherhood when you were in a heterosexual marriage judge. And when you imagine the possibility of motherhood if you imagined it did you imagine it differently in a straight marriage then you did when you were in as you are now in a lesbian marriage because not now. You're the mother of two children before no I. I didn't want on kids. I had no vision of having kids at all. I remember when I was little. I said I pictured myself with kids but there was never a a man around it was. I don't know if maybe he died in my mind or something. I don't know but I I did. Let's see myself. We kids but there was never a you know a a data around. That was when I was little now then then when I was older I I was like. Oh Oh God no no kids I never. I don't want kids and when I met my wife she that was her thing. lilt ultimate right up front. I want kids and I was like well. Can you give me like six months to think about it. And let's just continue dating and then we'll see and if I know it's not for me then you know then we'll just called his quits and you go on and find somebody who wants to have kids so she agreed so but after that six months even before then I quickly was like you know. Why wouldn't you want kids? Why wouldn't you WANNA start a family with this with this person and The best decision I've ever made with you love about being a mother. I guess it takes you out of yourself. You know Just just to to be able to Just love something so much and just want to be there and take care of them and and not worry about worry about yourself it. It's this good to know that I see capability you know. It's like oh I can do this. I thought I was so self absorbed but this is wow look at me. Look at me parenting and being being being caring about something else you know Myself Yeah it's just it's just beautiful. It they the yeah I I'm just learned aren't a lot about myself so I guess that is kind of like about me again. Dammit I thought so. Your wife gave birthed twins And and you joke in your latest comedy special about how people are always asking you because your children are white. How come you didn't choose an African American donor so that the children would be by racial and would reflect both both both of you instead of the donor being white? So you joke about that in the special but you must have had pretty serious conversations about that actually we. We didn't have that many conversations about it. I I was good with it. I was like look. You're doing all the heavy lifting your you know you gotTa Oughta you're getting a shot you're going through the process you carry them. You're delivering them. Of course you want the kids to look like you why or not you are go for it and also and also why you know. Why did the kids have need to bi racial to mirror us like say to women? We we can't make a baby the So their skin color to me didn't wasn't like you know something that I needed to feel like they're my kids. Did the you know they are my kids.

Tony Awards Preview
"Hi, everybody. It's Peter Travers than welcome to our special popcorn Tony award show. Now, I've gotta say, before we get into the nominees about who will win and who should win. This is been the most amazing year in Broadway history. It has made over two billion dollars at the box office that never happened. And why is it? I think it's Hollywood heat everybody from TV from movies from us. It wants to be on Broadway. They wanna be on that stage. You got this year. Kylo Ren and driver on Broadway. You have Walter, white Bryan, Cranston, there, Jeff Daniels who played Harry done in too, dumb and dumber movies. They're all fighting to be best, dramatic actor, what kind of stuff is happening on Broadway. Well, let's start with the major categories, and I'm gonna start with best musical the nominees are ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Beetlejuice remember that movie Haiti's town, the prom, and Tootsie. You remember that movie too? Well. I think the winner is Haiti's town. It's a rigid. It's basically the myth of Orpheus ritzy, but it's got a score by a woman named Naess Mitchell who doesn't come from Broadway, at all and kind of revolutionizes it. So what would happen what could spoil the fun? There's a little musical called the prom. It's really it's totally original. It's about these bunch of Broadway veterans, and they're really hard bitten, and they're not getting any press, and they decide to go to Indiana and help, a lesbian high school student take her girlfriend to the prom. That's it. How good is it? It's really good. And in terms of the Hollywood connection, Ryan Murphy, went to see it fell in love with it, and he's making a movie of it. So how about that? Then we have best play the Ferryman choirboy, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus. What the constitution means to me an ink. I'm telling you people, the Ferryman is got to be a movie soon. It's an Irish play. It's about the troubles, and in on a stage. We get to see an entire family deal with violence deal with their own feuds. We've got babies onstage. We've got live alive goose. We have everything there's nothing like I don't think there's any competition for it at all except there was a snub, the most successful play in Broadway history. That's not a musical is to kill among bird, and for some reason, the Tony nominee said, let's not nominated what I want. Answer on that one best revival of a play. Arthur, Miller's all my sons the boys in the band, burn this torch song and the Waverley gallery. I think Arthur Miller's all my sons which brought a net. Bending back to Broadway is a show that he wrote in one thousand nine hundred forty seven a bout a guy who was manufacturing airplane, parts and was to rush to do it. And so the planes crashed and killed pilots during the war. We live in the world of Boeing. Now, how timely could this be? So I think that's really up there. And I in terms of seeing a show that by playwright Arthur Miller who says, let's deal with the world we live in this one really, really did it then we have bible of musical. This is easy, because there's only two there's Oklahoma Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and kiss me. Kate. Of course, they were both movies. We saw Oklahoma with Gordon MacRae and Shirley Jones in the fifties. But kiss me, Kate is done in a traditional way. Kelli o'hara's in it, Oklahoma is directed by guide named Daniel fish who find darkness. We're Rogers and Hammerstein only found light. It's a revelation to watch this. It's not the Oklahoma you've ever remembered, and it sung in the kind of country western way, look, if you ever get to see this on Broadway or win a tours get there get there quick. Okay. Okay. Best actor in a musical. And so, we'll do alphabetically Brooks as Mantas in the prom, Derrick Baskin and ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations Alex Brightman and Beetlejuice. Remember when Michael Keaton had their part, Damon down, oh in Rogers and Hammerstein, Oklahoma. And send Tino fun Tanna into okay? The favorite is Tino, Tanna who is playing the part that destined Hoffman immortalized in the movie in the nineteen eighties. But what Centeno Tanna doesn't remember him on TV in crazy ex girlfriend like I'm saying everybody's from TV, or he does so much more. He sings as a man sees a woman, he does physical comedy does everything but stand on his hat. And I say, you know, who's out there that can spoil the win for Santino Tanna. And my answer is no one because this is one of the great performances you'll ever see on a musical, comedy stage. He's the winner. Best actress in a play Benning in Arthur, Miller's all my sons, Laura, Donnelly, in the Ferryman. Elaine may in the Waverley gallery, Janet mcteer in Bernhardt hamlet, Laurie Metcalf in Hillary Clinton, and Heidi Shreck in what the constitution means to me. Okay. Elaine may doesn't win this Tony. You're going to hear from me. She's eighty seven years old. She's returned to Broadway. After decades to play the part of a woman fighting Alzheimer's, and everything is no perfect about what she's done. She started with Mike Nichols doing comedy. She was starring in movies of like the new leaf directed things like the heartbreak kid. She's just one of the best actors I've ever seen anywhere. And if she loses and, you know, I feel bad for an bending because if Elaine may wasn't here this year, I think she would be the winner, but come on. Attention must be paid people. And I also wanna talk about a snub how. How does Glenda Jackson who won the Tony last year for three women returned to Broadway as King Lear? We talk about the age of hashtag metoo and time's up Glenda. Jackson is playing king. Lear gets rave reviews and the Tony committee says we're not gonna nominate her now. No, we're paying attention. And we're gonna come back and get you our best actress in a musical. Stephanie, j block in the share show Caitlyn Kanoun in the prom Beth level, in the prom, Eva nobles, ADA in Haiti's town, and Kelley O'Hara and kiss me cake. Stephanie j block who is that theater veteran is playing share in a way that sometimes she's more share than share. You might think this is just an escapist show thing to know she finds the character of who she is share shows up at this show often does numbers with her, and pus share. There's who's a bigger Hollywood. Name who is coming to Broadway with the show about herself. It takes three actresses to play here. But Stephanie j block plays the central one. And she plays the hell out of it. So she has just got to win. I'm sorry, people. All right. Best featured actress in a play for new of Flanagan in the Ferryman seal, you keep. And Bolger into kill a Mockingbird. Christine Nelson, Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Julie white and Gary sequel to Titus andronicus and Ruth Wilson and King Lear people if you see if you see to kill among bird, and you should seal, you Keenan Bolger is very controversial because she's playing scout scout in the book and in the movie remember is in eight or nine year old girl. A C Keenan Bolger is in her forties. And yet, what she finds in this character who grew up to be Harper who wrote this novel is the heart and soul of the peace. So I'm telling you people this, this has got to happen. See Keenan Bolger remember that name best featured actor in a play birdie Carville and ink, Robin to hasten boys in the band getting Glick into kill a monkey bird, Brandon your Ranna wits in burn this Benjamin Walker in Arthur Miller's. All my sons birdie, Carville in ink. Those of us, those of you who actually went to Broadway couple of years ago and saw of any kind of a musical where you were shocked at a man playing a woman, you saw birdie, Carville in Matilda, and he played this woman, this horrible headmistress, and now he's playing Rupert Murdoch. So every who in Hollywood, who in politics would anyone hasn't been in an Rupert Murdoch publication or paper and who hasn't been rolled over the coals in it that performance and in London when he played it in one and Olivia ward, he had to play it in front of Rupert Murdoch. It's just an incredible job. I wanna talk a little about the snubs in this category. The non nominees there isn't actor named Bengal Arghanab into Killa mugging bird who plays Tom Robinson. He is the black man who is on trial for raping a white woman, a crime never committed. And he's defended. By Jeff Daniels. Atticus Finch when Aaron Sorkin adapted Harper Lee's novel to the stage. He did it so that he could expand the role of the black characters as he did here. And again, the Tony committee, decided only to nominate the white actors from tequila, Mockingbird ignoring the two black actors who are just brilliant in their roles. You people you're going to get called on the carpet. You need to all right? Best featured actress in a musical, Lilli Cooper in Tootsie, amber, gray and Haiti's town Sarah, styles Tootsie, alley stroke, or in Rogers and Hammerstein Oklahoma and Mary, Testa in Rogers, and Hammerstein Oklahoma there, something totally remarkable that happened this year in stroke, and Oklahoma. This is a woman who when she was two years old was in an automobile crash, and was never able to walk again. And now on Broadway playing eight oh Anne who is like the sexual. Time bomb in Oklahoma, the one who sings, I can't say, no, the part went to Allie. Stroke, she plays it in a wheelchair and you would think that's inspiring enough. But when you watch her play at you, forget the wheelchair exists, and you're watching her take over the stage like Dolly Parton. She, it's just an amazing thing to watch and it works on so many levels. So I wanna be there when she wins that Tony, and I want to be standing up and applauding and going Bravo. She deserves all right. Best featured actor in a musical Andre shields in Haiti town and a groups Luccin. That's a good name into Patrick page in Haiti's town germy, pope in into proud the life and times of the temptations and Ephraim Sykes ain't too, proud the life and times of the temptations, the favorite, the one, I think will win is under the shields and Haiti's town. He's seventy three years old. He stands on that stage is the narrator in like a silver suit. In total control of body and every movement and pulls you in till you're memorized. Your mesmerizing you not take your eyes off of hundred shields. This is a veteran actor who needs to get this Tony. But what if he didn't who would go to there's a young actor named Jeremy pope who plays Eddie kendricks in the into proud the life and times of the temptations? And who does he's playing a difficult man. One of the most difficult of the temptations. But one of the most talented as well. He's also nominated this year as best actor in a in a play in choir, boy, this is to me, the brightest newcomer that you will see on the stage and you're going to see him everywhere, stage movies television. It's just the beginning. So if you get to see this, you're going to be able to tell your friends, I was there win. Okay. Best director of a play Rupert Gould for Inc. Sam Mendes for the Ferryman Bartlett. Fair for to kill a mocking bird Ivo von Hosver for network, and George C Wolfer Gary a sequel to Titus andronicus Sam Mendis in the Ferryman this play. Does a job on stage that equal to his first movie which was American Beauty, which you may remember won the best picture? Oscar and once Mendis the Oscar as best director.

Brussels doubts: another Brexit delay
"This morning, many hours after the leaders of the European Union sat down to dinner to discuss its most troublesome member an agreement was reached on what to do next tonight's. There will be on account of decided to grant stay United Kingdom of flexible extension of the article fifty period under the. The festival European Council. President Donald tusk pulled Britain back from a cliff edge averting, a default, no deal Brexit tomorrow. But the change in timeline came with a plea this extension this s flexible as Sykes -pected and solidified shotted the knife Specht about the still enough to find the best possible option. Do not waste this time. Britain's Prime Minister Theresa may hadn't been invited to the dinner. Instead she ate humble pie. Coming back to Brussels once again without a consensus on how to leave the EU nearly three years after Brits voted out. Let me conclude by saying this, I know that there is a huge frustration from many people that I had to request this extension. The UK should have left the EU by now and I sincerely regrets. The fact that I have not yet been able to persuade parliament to approve a deal which would allow the UK to leave in a smooth and orderly way. But the choices we now face are stark and the timetable is clear. That frustration had been all too evidence over the course of the evening. The big gap was between Angola Merckel of Germany who had most of the other leaders gathered around her and a minority around Emmanuel Macron, France, Germany, cliff rights, Charlemagne, our call him about European politics. He's been watching all of this from Brussels. Mrs Merckel was for granting Britain of very long extension to work out. What it really wanted from Brexit, and to ideally pass a deal zoo, the German jobs Lewis pushing for a delay until at least the end of the year perhaps into twenty twenty on the other hand demento macro wanted to force Britain to make up its mind sooner than that. And was pushing for maybe just a few additional weeks, so avoiding a no deal exit this Friday, but nonetheless, getting on with the decision and and getting out of the way of other issues the teachings of more important to the EU. So how was a middle way found how do they hammer this out in the end essentially, they decided to split the difference by going for thirty first which some would consider. A reasonable balance between the imperatives of getting the Brexit issue sorted out of the way on the one hand and also giving bricks and time to yourself out on the other on the flip side, you could say that it's both long enough for Britain to cause disruption and not not enough necessarily to make its mind up. But in in the meantime, one of the ways that Britain can make mischief is at next month's European parliament elections how much is that a factor in all of this is originally both sides really wanted to avoid prison participating in the year in parliamentary action, the Brits. Because they didn't think it would look good three years after Britain voted to leave the EU to be voting yet. Again, new legislators to the parliament in Strasbourg and on the European side. I think there was a sense that Britain now that it's ready halfway out of the door. Anyway, would be a disruptive force in the European parliament. And you know, could could end up leaving the club quite soon after it elects EMMY peas there, there is another way which is that Britain kind of enters. A gentlemen's agreement simply to lay low and and to not make mischief, and that's actually what has entered into Britain has for example, said that it won't interfere in the choice of the next European Commission. President it won't get in the way of of the Union's term objectives and to confirm that that will be an informal summit in June the review Britain's behavior as as as an ongoing member of the club. There's no suggestion that Britain will be objected prematurely on the back of that. But I think it's it is that is meant as a recurrence to people like manual Mackall who worry that Britain because trouble so is is Brexit having an effect on on the EU. More broadly is are all of these kinds of disagreements, and these long meetings sort of highlighting other divisions within the U you starting to see now is an interesting split between those who would like to see Britain change, it's mind either in general election or in a second referendum and rejoin or commit to stay in the EU. And I think you could count Angela Merkel's among those and some of the other northern members. And those who think that really it's time that Britain left in the end of the club needs to make virtue of that. And I think the macro belongs to that club. And those I think speak to brought a divides about what sort of e you Europe should be aiming for should it be a tight or integrated Europe or broader one along along more sort of loose lines. So I think you're gonna see that play out, particularly if Britain comes back to us yet another extension tuba.
