Science, Interrupted - lives, loves, labs upended by COVID19
"Welcome to science friction on the Tash Mitchell and this is science interrupted and possibly radio interrupted because I have a puppy snoring very audibly and loudly at my fate right now working from home folks. It's tremendously difficult to think of not of not finishing the work. It's tremendously difficult booking with. Todd's is always a race against time as your money formation but the majority of the information are actually Mike. God really this pandemic has swift in Lancaster. Nami hasn't gotten caught us. All by complete surprise wherein collective state of shock really and for many scientists so much at stake use of experiments field work results. Clinical trials patients students the lives of lab animals the consequences for so many Deeply personal and in some cases could affect the lives of thousands of others and other species too so today on the show. Three scientists with three. Clemson's how are you? How are you going? Yeah yeah good bevy. What's been over and I met this morning by spin. Had this zone call with a bunch of other people from Perth and she was basically lap. Hold us on. He's a roller coaster. Look to Paula. Magni won fame lab Australia competition last year. And she's a senior lecturer in forensic science at Murdoch University in Perth at my husband across line pharmacist in Perth so possibly meeting people affected by Kobe. Nine hundred every single day but right now Paul easing Singapore where she also works as deputy dean of Murdoch University's campus there. Her baby daughter with her and Shayna husband don't know when they'll be able to be reunited. He was going to be concerned. Who are going to be concerned as well but this is probably the best option for the moment. We hope that these are going to be only for a while but for the moment it is what it is and not say his daughter for very many many months. Yeah so they can see each other only by by video call. That is a huge gift. Imagine these happening ten years ago or more could be better than years ago but the situation is changing. So much isn't it? It's still very unclear what's going to happen with international flights around the world. Yeah absolutely impossible to make any predictions at the moment. Also because Australia is getting way better especially Western Australia. Because he's very much aware from every everybody else. Singapore is experiencing a second important peak of cases compared to other countries. We are leaving this situation pretty pretty well. Syncopal learned a lot from this SARS situation and we didn't have many cases at all until a few weeks ago when they borders. Were going to be closed. Many people from all over the world wanted to come back to Singapore and they came back or seek your Italian and the saints. Coming out of Italy of Bain very very distressing during this pandemic rot from early on. What does that make food for you and your family in Italy? I speak with them every day and I make sure that they have everything they need. I've managed to the to do online shopping for them from Singapore to have them home. My grandmother she turned ninety seven last week. And the she's safe and sound in a healthcare facility but this is the first time in live in which he doesn't see my mom my Auntie for more than two days in a row and they edge facilities at being locked down so yeah. It's an interesting learning curve for for the family and there's also a big exercise Of Trust for the words day in the facilities Singapore has now gone into a lockdown and polar and colleagues having to move really fast to put their university courses online. She's also supporting students around the world with their projects now influx and Maija grant application processes of import on pause to then this Horon Research. You'll work as a forensic scientist into an expert on many crime scene investigations in Italy. You're now doing forensic science research here in Australia. And you shared this curious photo with me of what you describe as your babies back in the land in Perth in Western Australia. And it had me totally intrigued. What is it a fraud all? So my baby's baby Bob Nichols not people say barnacles as babies about Research I USED NICHOLS FOR CLEVELAND. Investigation when aboard US found in a in aquatic environments in the Ocean. So because bunny goes at annoying. They attach on anything that he's flogging. It is underwater and they stuck on that we can identify what they Ya. So where is the body confront? From how long the bodies in water and also the journey the talk the body from the primary campsie what was dumped in the ocean to the place where the body was found so they can be very interesting but it is not that to do this kind of research. We need to have colonies of Barnacles in in the lab so we keep having them in in Aquaria but the they eat small because Kobe algae so we had to grow the algae as well. You can now go to the supermarket and Buy Balaji and beside that. I work input on seeking to. Malaysia is whether it is the study of insects and we have colonies of flos is in as well is very difficult to keep up with them with the colonies at the moment when a when they laboratories have been shot because often of the issue that is going on. It's incredible work so you've got. These baby barnacles back in the lab in Perth. And will they die because the I guess? Barnacles barnacles one concern but there are labs all over the world with experimental animals of all shapes sizes and varieties and species from Retz to mice and onwards barnacles to that possibly going to be compromised or cold. Because of this global shutdown. I will say maybe the research would be compromised. The life of the of the animal is probably not because all the university have the ethical necessity of looking after all the animals that they have so all. The university have in place measures to look after all the animals in the different labs. I was a bit dramatic because I miss my babies. I guess when I think about my Banoco sometimes you feel like what he's the. Utd All my job in the big scheme in the big picture of things really for researchers. Like me probe's is a big wakeup call about the the importance of your search but at the same time that the world is big and many other things are important on a different scale. So I remember the first had with Bundy cars and the head. The mother of this guy that was found on the shore there was crying on this loss and I was the only personal gather information that could give a piece bring justice to this family bring closure to the victim so these another victim. He's not a cove in nineteen victim but my research he's

Weinstein case could influence other sex crime prosecutions
"Are talking this hour about the verdict handed down yesterday in the case against Harvey Weinstein. And what if any work remains to be done in the metoo movement and whether or not yesterday's verdict was a watershed moment in the metoo movement? I'm joined by a team. Goss graves. She's president and CEO of the National Women's Law Center and co-founder of Times Up Legal Defense Fund and joining us. Now from New York is Jodi Kantor. Jody along with her colleague. Megan twohey both from the New York. Times they are Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporters who first broke the story about Harvey Weinstein and his sexual harassment behavior to say the least Jodie and Megan are co authors of the two thousand eighteen book. She said breaking the sexual harassment story. That helped ignite a movement. Jodi Kantor welcome to on point. Glad to be with you so first of all I. Have you been in touch with many of the women who even speaking to over the years in the in the wake of the Weinstein verdict yesterday and if so what have they told you I had? I actually delivered the news. Tash Lee Judd. Yesterday I called her Emmy told her. I just really a few minutes after the guilty verdict. What had happened and she took a second and he just said this is the way it's supposed to be. This is the way it's supposed to be. And then what did? What did she mean by that? What more does she tell you? I think what team anticipated. Harvey Weinstein signature is lack of accountability. This is a man who manipulated people. Who PRESSURED THEM TO SIGN? Nondisclosure AGREEMENTS PAID PEOPLE OFF Often intimidated and threatened people according to numerous sources and former employees and the idea that he is finally facing accountability. I think meant a tremendous amount to different people. Some people felt closer people. Some people felt Satisfaction. But I think when you look at the power of me too. It's really accountability. That's driven the whole thing. The idea that there are consequences for this kind of behavior is what caused other people to come forward in the first place. Jodi you've been following this story for so long now. I wonder what you make. Of the fact that he was found guilty on those on those two counts against him but but not but not all of them. What's what is the the the implications of that. It was a mixed verdict. Which I think is actually pretty symbolic of me to that. It is very hard to resolve these issues in society and remember that the jury was charged with interpreting a lot of complicated questions about consent. This was by no means You know a sort of Straightforward set of allegations. And so. I think I think we as the Society of the lot of these jurors we ask them to go into a room and resolve things that the rest of us have not really worked out And the U. and Megan wrote a story just yesterday for the Times Following the the the verdict. And it you point out your remind us of the two thousand eighteen verdict against bill cosby the Cosby and the Weinstein verdicts taken together. Do you think that we're we're seeing a change in terms of as you're making put it end of story people's acceptance of the quote messy -ness of these kinds of cases and what it takes to prove? What happened in a court of law? That's the question I mean either. To very high profile cases but especially in the Weinstein trial part of the significance of the verdict comes from the fact that this was a really long shot case in a lot of ways. It was risky for the prosecutors. Some fellow prosecutors didn't even think the New York Attorney New York. Da was right to miss soured And so then the fact that they won this victory means that they may have done something to shift andries of sex crimes prosecutions and whose stories get hurt annoy only heavy for another minute or two more. Jodi because I imagine you're still very busy but there is no problem. I just WanNa ask you one last question. I mean as I'm just wondering if I could ask you to step just a hair outside your role as a as a reporter for a moment and just reflect with me on what this moment meant to you and to Megan in terms of all the work that you put in to do the investigations that drove this issue into the public mind. What does the verdict mean to you? Well thank you for asking. That mean when I would say is that the meaning of this work was clear to me from within the very first phone calls to the very first braves women who told us their stories and we did this work without knowing what we would find what we are others would uncover. What the extent of the allegations are now we can see crimes would turn out to be and we hit the way. Yeah whether Weinstein would be prosecuted or not and and and what would result from that prosecution? You do the story just to find the truth. Knowing the journalism may be the only form of count ability that he faces or knowing that it could lead to something more we'll Jodi cantor is the Pulitzer Prize winning investigative reporter for The New York Times Co author with Megan. Twohey of she said breaking the sexual harassment story. That helped ignite a movement. Jodi thank you very much. Thank you take care.
Our AI Isn't Weird Enough Yet
"Welcome to you. Did what now a podcast where we discussed stories and science and Tech Tech. Make US ask exactly that Harry one. Thanks for listening on your host. Stephanie Educator and science aficionado Michael Programmer Tech Guy. I've always talked about algorithms MM suffering and I. I just saw one yesterday though I saw one I gu photos law to they have an algorithm miseries. Stitching together photos. Is doing this doing that so so I don't know. Are you familiar with Google Photos Upload your photos there at all you all of my photos are there so I hope you're not going to tell me that my photos should not be there so I don't know about that voters in there so these things stitch together they'll see. This is the best shot. I'll try to smile. Goes where it puts the photos together and tries to you. Take seven of the same person and they'll try to give you that. Look the best shot of it or I'll make movies on the list of so one of the things that does is called Ben and now or like identify you from some years ago and stitch together with a with a pose that you just talk shows. I don't know how exactly how it works. I haven't dug into the but it like I find on the expressions are often similar. Like you're looking the same way to me. It's Kinda cool and it's something that's supposed to make you feel better or worse about yourself you eh. Just sort of like how things change a lot of the kids. The kids come locks take a billion pictures of the cancel. Show me one two years ago when they're doing something from the Christmas tree with. This is one of the Christmas drink but when I took recently they just sort of drives home. How stupid algorithms are and how easy and like how? We're not anywhere near you Larry. Learning how algorithms are stupid and that they don't really understand what you're doing. I took a picture. Just 'cause I wanted to Texas to somebody and it was easy to take a picture my screen than it was to find the photo on my phone own and text it so I took a photo of funny picture of my cousin or my two of my cousins sitting on the couch. And they're making the lyrics making kind of funny as one of them is about to take a bite so I took like a picture of that and I sent it to me sent to them just to get a laugh and whatever we laughed and Google photos auto uploaded it because my tax message APP with all this new photo which which is again. It didn't need to do that because they photo elsewhere but so today I got this little pop up saying then now. It's the same photos the photo I took a picture of with the picture sir. Hey these people remarkably similar right like it's it's funny because you think it's sort of it's weird. How sometimes aches and tell my kids are agent for the most part? I guess maybe just 'cause it's slow and it sees them step by step which you think he would identify these pictures even with the lighting slightly different that. Hey this is exactly the same. These these people are exactly the same age exactly the same pose that he went that it wouldn't be tripped up by it but it clearly was. I wonder if you could. Are you. Do Sir do those picture re-creations of when you you you're thirty years old and you try and recreate a picture of when you were you know three five and seven with your siblings. You're thirty thirty five and thirty seven and you're in the best of the big smile. Would it be able to recognize that as the same person I it should attack. Generally you haven't tags so yeah it should know that we'll say as things get better but it's still remarkably stupid and that's actually what I want to talk about today is how is weird. Dum Okay and you're and you're using those adjectives weird and dumb not just as like okay. You're judging it as like. Oh that's dumb. You're actually trying to say that it is stupid in nature. It's definitely stupid. We're nowhere near anywhere near real intelligence legance at So I was listening to Ted. Talk by Janelle Shane. WHO's a researcher? She didn't like a ten minute tech. Ted Talk About Ai. Just a bunch much different things and how it's quirky and how that basically is weirder than we think like we're not the future is going to be weirder than we think because all these things are not is not great and were teaching it poorly as well. Though the first thing she starts with he talks about ice cream flavor. She worked with a young program is I think she said but she basically she fed the algorithm with a bunch of ice cream flavors. And Yeah you know. Some of them have weird names. You've I'm sure you've been to an ice cream shop. They make up these crazy things. He doesn't know any better understood. So this album to try to generate new ice cream flavors so so here are some of the three that she suggested it's called Pumpkin Tash break Peanut butter slime and strawberry cream disease. give me a ball full of that right exactly because it doesn't no it doesn't what is cream is he doesn't know that it's trying to make appealing flavors. You're telling me give me things like this so basically what it's doing is just finding letter combinations or word combinations and just feeding them together until it gets on that and it gets gibberish peanut butter slime. Yeah Yeah I have a feeling that there would be definitely we some market for that in the for the six to nine year old boy range. They would definitely WANNA try peanut butter sly you know this is this is my next attack idea. Next tech building idea is going to create an ice cream shop just but everything's generated by the machine so it'll be peanut butter slime and strawberry abry cream disease and just just go at it. Make flavors the match the ridiculously generated. Things and funny thing is that then become they become real flavors and suddenly the he is in his stupid as it was the future. Would you call your company of of robot ice cream career game would have to be generated by the all. I would take all the ice cream shops that are out there so I get you know Maggie Moose who's stone or exactly okay. Well Good luck with this. Yeah so so she goes on. Oh she's talking about things that are happening she. She mentions movies like she thinks. The terminator should have been weirder like the term comes back like super robot with a walks. It's normally acts a little weird but not probably any weirder than order storks today acts anyway. Hey leave him alone can every every way right. But he's a very like this is a I super intelligent robot thing in the future but it he she says it probably should have been we iteration of probably been maybe not walking smoothly so one of the things she she distress she's talking about generating robots in robots to cross the dungeon or cross a world. Teach them how to walk. They step over cliffs over steps and all that sort of things and it turns out what happens is a lot of times robots will just sort of bill themselves up really tall and then just fall over to get to the debt to the destination rather than trying to walk. Because you you think oh we're going to get from A to B. Let's walk there. Let's a debate. But they're just literally. How do I move this object from A to B they just make a big tower and fall over and then then and then they're they're robot reaches the end of the world so it's it's crazy things like that that we're gonNA see in the future because this is what what robots are this is what algorithms are going going to learn from the data? We give it unless really really careful. So you're saying that we probably don't need to be worrying about robots and P. future coming back back to you murderous. Yeah I'm not too worried about it because all these robots just things like that I mean if you program is similar any computer or Computer Algorithm Arolla. It's it's all as good as the human that programmed at an oftentimes as a programmer. I can tell you that. Programmers are not particularly smart. Okay well that's I mean that's good news. I guess but I mean I mean how are they. I'm sure there's people that are going to try and an close this gap in AI knowledge knowledge by trying to fix that right. Yeah I mean a lot of it's just communication. You GotTa really understand what you're doing now and it's another example. She go and you see this. A lot is how like racist or misogynistic. algorithms could be when they're sorting people so many of our history so much of our history and our society eighty. Is that way so if you'll give society to train it is going to be like well. Okay you never hire anybody. That's there went to a college says women's College I'm I'm not gonna I'm not gonNA suggest resumes for anybody that went to a women's college all executives are named Bob. So if your name is Bob I'm GonNa hire you interesting so I mean it's hard to get around the stuff. Humans are infallible. I mean humans are sorry humans are definitely really we have flaws right just human nature And so I guess it makes sense that whatever we try to create will we'll also have the same flaws that we do in some representation right and maybe even worse because we don't even realize them until a computer kicking them apart or or. Let's say you do this all the time. So I'm going to do this all the time and like okay. So it's really so the none of the nothing. The bolts of it is like we're not going to build a super intelligent computer to fix all our problems until we understand what our problems are and how to fix them. It's a tool not not a cure all right and in a way that is not Human in nature they are not humans they are going to try to solve problems. Problems in extremely weird ways unless you are very specific in how you want that problem solved

about it for the next hundred years but he also believes in alternative realities has he how does he put those down he doesn't consider himself garage but he has notebooks and he he writes things down to in his way of offloading I think the worries that he carries around he's the warriors he thinks about everything too much and this is his way of not carrying too much stuff around with him so he he thinks of the night books as a well he drops the Stein's in the well and then he doesn't have to carry them around he's not a hero heroic enough do nor those starnes anywhere else Z. certainly not from my for much of Volkan and even then he's he's not a true hero in that he's brive or resourceful or anything like that he's just trying to get by but he Dan rather things down he can his beautiful rata he's an imaginative human being well we I mit mitigate medium in the prologue and he's aged Woah where he's out with his dad and he's met with his dad's met camping in the Bush now this may sound like a father son bonding time but in reality it was caught one newt two tenths and three Isky what did Dick Nights Dad want night to do this is an initiation rot or a blooding so to speak where where nights on the eleven years old and yet he's expected to handle the gun and shoot a great and that's it's difficult for him to do on one hand wants to impress his dad and he wants to be a man but on the other hand it goes against everything that that you know his is in him and saw this is this repeats throughout the book this moment that if he could have changed inched not miss shooting the goat would have been a different person well now sixteen years old and lives in her how the dysfunctional family which in I'd say they're pretty dysfunctional though so I think fairly typical of Some lower socio economic disadvantage families his love and his fun and this you know there's all kinds of stuff with this also lights of dysfunction going on yeah nights mother left where we found out that there was a reason for that and his dad deck is now will nights now got a new stepmother zoning eight years older than he said and this twins now stepbrothers twins jake and artists they were once inseparable but now Otis's three he's walking and he's talking and he's starting to act out more like his father towards his in brother his definitely starting to mimic deck in many in his mannerisms his attitude towards women you know he's quite critical of you signed mom at three is old he will close jeep id Things like that sending contrast this his younger his twin brother artists artists is has disability who was born developmentally delayed he the family folklore goes that Jake is a bump on his chest and Otis hesitant as jake when they separated twins took a pace of Sweden and but it's it's wash right season Otis's is that they have they communicate without speaking because because at this point is he's not verbal but he can only repeat words for things that he already knows he's Stu whiting to reach that level where he can tell us what he wants tell us what eighteen his mind and is one would that he refuses to say he will not site Dick or dad brings out upon perhaps a little bit more now nate back tonight he loves facts and Rod Sabra about prey animals and creditors he knows pray must group together up but only got one friend made through proximity over personality who's that friend this Kinda Merrick he lives in the unit across the I live in a group share a group of units so they've been friends for the last six years America ways comes to the wind I never to the front door and they kind of consider each other friends by accident but there's much more to it than that it's a very deep in bonding friendship now he also has very difficult family life but nate describes his maters he has to control his tim pump he is trapped in a body the can't control his mouth he does Merrick gets into situations quite often he's rather would rather jump in and swing than doc in means and he'll he'll bite into situations that he however which he has no control and drag night along with him well these two out the only dis- ebbed teens in the town in suburb where they all made with this I've placed beside places is youth which is pickle of many youth centers I think around Australia I've been to a few and they will they will have the same feel that I think the kids that guy here the ones who don't have the tribe quite often or who who's hyme life is is just not safe this they need somebody to be able to just do things like h occasionally shower you fall asleep on a couch without wondering whether it's unsafe that kind of thing may see when you said you visited youth areas somebody like my see I think the best youth where the work has a lock my st in that they come from within that world and have an undisturbed deep understand adding of it so that the exchange between the youth workers and the children is much more honest in Ecuador as opposed to do gooders hanging in and trying to make changes without really understanding what these kids are up against so macy's sort of by her look and not so much growth authority but by her ability she controls this up people do feel safe there she's a survivor and the thing that kids since that they understand all just looking at her that she's she's been warned she's come out the other side of it and therefore they willing to follow her right we'll sort of night comes here too series homework and rod his nights he loses some pages of his notebook what happens then which is terrifying for him because the the things that he brought Newsnight booker intensely personal and never meant for anybody else to see or hear so he's lost lost a couple of pages and then a few days later one of his superiors graffiti on the wall to as is a way of protesting the post punk leisure of of the Santa suspect he immediately suspects tash a young lady who goes to the youth center he has some rather superior skills and she she is she doesn't hide the fact that she thinks he should stand up more for what he believes in and actually fought for the things that he cares about she's always more removed often she's she's scary really and look apologies to listeners but if you've witnessed disgruntled teenager the best way to just described as nate does is she has a fuck fuck off ice that's exactly what she deploys regularly graffiti leads the possibility of the youth closing down and this is a pretty safe place because school really isn't sport is the arena for bullied and quite often night has the blood noise or whatever but there is Mr Reed there's yes he's the English teacher who are rather deliberately right as Stereo taught in the beginning of the book and I had a bit of fun with that are made him out to be Must Robin Williams Caricature but I guess the point of that was to flip it later on when he realizes that he's altruism doesn't really come from a good place he's come from a private school he wants to make it changes help these kids and but he's reasons for doing that PEPs a little misguided he doesn't really understand the world they come from and he needs to deep he needs to understand his reasons for being so flips not quite so selfless after or anything can they have an exchange in a way of moving forward

Wildlife Tourism And Other Dangers Facing Our Most Coveted Species
"Here with me in studio is Natasha, daily a writer and editor for National Geographic, covering, animal welfare and exploitation. She's the reporter behind net Geos June. Cover story about wildlife tourism behind the scenes the tash up. Welcome to one A. Thanks. For having me. First things. First Natasha, what do we mean? When we talk about wildlife tourism talk about the wide array of experiences that this includes right, so wildlife tourism really can run the gamut from going into the forest with binoculars looking for birds to going on safari to having these up-close experiences with exotic animals. So it really does run a there's a vast spectrum that it covers. And now you made a short documentary that showcases some of what you found while traveling. And researching this story, here's a piece of that documentary. She's. Mccain behind the stadium where the elephants perform, and we found this juvenile elephant on. He has a gaping at his temple. He also has broken leg. The other one is chained up. He looks totally emaciated skin and bones. This is forced shape. I've seen an elephant in Thailand. All in the name of entertainment, while I have to say, I, I watched that earlier. And, and as we were just discussing a lot. Yes, being there in person was extremely difficult. So just a little background on our story, so photographer. Kirstin loose. And I traveled around the world over the course of about a year, looking at various hot spots, where this industry is thriving and that clip. You just heard was from a elephant attraction outside of Bangkok Thailand. And we found this, juvenile elephant behind a stadium gives an overview of where all you went to right. So we traveled. So we really wanted to go to hot spots around the world where this up close, these up close encounters with captive wildlife are thriving. So we, we went to Thailand where there for about a month. We went to Russia, we went to Hawaii, and where this all started to rewind was actually in the rainforest where we are looking at these experiences with Slavs, Caymans, Anaconda, etc. That's what I was just gonna ask you what kinds of wildlife tourism, did you encounter along the way? Right. So we're really looking at native species in each place. We went, so and the reason we're doing that is because, for example, you may go to Thailand as a traveler and something that's kinda often at the top of people's bucket lists as wanting to get close to an elephant, or a tiger. So we really want to look at animals native to the countries where we were traveling to see how they're used for these unique wildlife experiences. Laura tweeted, she says we went on our honeymoon to Thailand with visions of writing an elephant upon arrival. We were warned of the horrific condition used to break the elephants and opted to visit a sanctuary instead where we could feed the elephants and give them a bath. It was more expensive, but far more humane. Right. Ring a bell. Yeah. Absolutely. So I think that this is increasingly I mean, first of all tobacco a little bit. What I think Laura is describing is a process that is pretty universe. Missile based on what we found in our reporting. So in order for an elephant, for example, to be docile enough to interact with humans up close to give those rides or even give those baths or perform tricks. They have to be trained from a young age. And so we encountered hundreds of elephants through our, our time in Thailand, and spoke to trainers, etc. And typically what happens when elephants is young is at the elephant is separated from its mother, and that it is slowly trained using a an instrument called bullhook, which is a wooden stick with a metal hook on the end to comply to sit to stand to tricks and essentially to, to be able to obey the owner. So I think that's what Laura describing what she heard about before she went there, and maybe she didn't realize before she went the is prolific throughout the industry. Can you describe a bit more about the

Looking folks don't seem to want to get up, and it's very disruptive people. Don't like it. When you go to the loo in the mid anyway, it was fine.

Eight cannot be just like can it is it just like, you just you and your wife, you just had this like huge ball of love that you live in no doubt, daft it very much. It's the whole point. I think is that you go through this crazy ceremony. And you do it in front of your friends because the whole thing is, you know, it's a bit of a weird thing having a relationship with a person and expecting it to go on for a long time. Let alone for the rest of your life. Exactly. All you one hundred percent sure when you were doing it like this is this is. Great you going to say I. Well, it depends. I just I feel like I was saying you're saying it is weird. It's like making a gesture to the rest of society, your friends and. Go pastoral sites. Yeah. Phil amazing. We like, whoa. How feels like a big deal? Yeah. Because like I shouldn't fuck this up. I should take the serious.

You said you didn't like my podcast. Yeah. Exactly. Because of course, you go through those moments. But then it's quite good too. I mean, some people would disagree. They would say, well, I don't want some weird outdated ludicrous institution governing my decision making and making me feel guilty about doing what I should be doing which is getting out of relationship, which doesn't work anymore or anything like that. But you know, why why is that any worse than any other techniques that you use for making a relationship lost? Yeah. Sometimes it's quite nice. Just to think actually, it would be so embarrassing and such a pain in the us to get divorced. That will just stay together. Calling. If you're listening to this. You know, I love you. And all I'm doing is being honest about the experiences that every married person have interesting, the idea is you go with someone, and you you really love them. And you think wow, I love them. So mile of everything about them other thing I ever need to go out with anyone else. Again. I think it's time to get married because that's how much I love this person. They're right for me. And I think they may be the one and this, isn't it amazing? I've actually met the person that's right for me. And they happened to live very close. The same. For whatever reason I've lucked out.

It's this is great. But then, you know, the first time comes along where you think, oh, I'm really angry with them. Yeah. And I don't know how I'm going to get beyond it. And I think that this thing that I'm angry about is probably never going to go away. And or conversely while they seem really really upset with me about that thing that I did. And I'm not sure I've ever really going to be able to apologize efficiently for that. How's that going to work for the rest of our lives? And it works if it works 'cause you just think well, I promised. So promise the promise actually, it's quite good. Sometimes to promise, I think. Yeah. Totally.

I mean, Lisa could drove it's like she's done the comeback since I'm all of them Matlet blog. Let's. Very jan. Kony see there, my people.

So you know, they were there they were on TV, and they were funny, and they weren't just like they're all all of them are mad that they're not straight women. It's just I love their storylines were the marriage story. So, you know, I think there's a temptation to sit a think, oh what we're very close to solving all these issues. Here's a couple of years. Everything's going to be sorted out. No in ten years time, people will be looking back at stuff that we're doing and saying Nunu, you can't say that. Yeah. This. Caucus us. An example this podcast.

Thinking auto chew I wanna fuck at the time. I wanna fuck with the time. Very whizzing me. Thought show is on maranda is such an like all of them. But then again, you know, they're they're so much. It was the episode where reminders like what do we think? What do we feel there is that quite yet? But like because they're all they're doing about men's bulls. Any it's either. Now, it's a minefield. I shouldn't I shouldn't have strode on it because I'm laying off. That's right. Just lost in air. But yeah, it's very it's food for thought certainly is. Interesting suit tasty. Thought I'd say thing talk about Brexit.

And the times you close you are supposed to just completely expunged them. Obviously, there's a practical reason for doing that.

I am feeling very very very strongly that I never ever ever ever want to be in a relationship again, because I'm not icon go through this again, I cannot I don't know if having someone to hang out with on a Sunday is worth this. Like, I feel like I have genuinely been walking into walls for the past month. Also since it happened. What's the feeling though is that you'll never find someone so nice again or new? Just the feeling that without this person. Whoever they are you can't survive you can't function like a need to know, what someone had for dinner points that no one wants to tell me what they've had for dinner care what I've had for dinner rice again.

"And then you look back at your relationship past you, look back at your interactions with men you look back at stuff, and you're like so much of that is because everyone thought it was okay. Like for my like fourteenth birthday. I think what I wanted was a handmade corset. Speakers. I I'd say like a music video Christina glare was wearing a corset or something. I've been like, yes, I need to get my waist small, and I need my boobs pump in this article in one of the girls magazines. I had that was like the perfect Christmas present or wherever it was like this place in Camden where they hand. And I was like something I can wear with any outfit. It's going to be sexy. It's going to be black with red lining. And what was I was like corset, let's strap you in. Let's get your waist. It's medieval. No, it's very odd. But it's even earlier than medieval, it's one of the it's almost it all started with the course, I think is where I'm going most like getting your feet bound abor. It's in say like the unlike I was like, yeah. This is going to be great. I'll be aware under t shirts. I never wanted. A course it I mean, maybe I could use one. But a piece that's different. The most interested I ever got in sport was when I saw the cricketers were wearing their boxes. I'd like boxes. That's what they're called over there. Willie's. Really? Yeah. Willie protecting books. I think it's okay. And I'm about to come. A win in a box. Yeah. I guess I don't know. Why went off on this time because he said, I know it's a good tangent. I apologize for snoring. I doing the snoring joke. Didn't know where I was going. I didn't know I was going. I didn't know I was gonna get like this. But I do think I've like I've had like fights with my male friend, not fights. But like debates where in the past like they've talked about a girl that they're seeing completely innocent. You know, unlike with friends, I know that good people, but I've been like hang on stop there. Don't say like, it's actually if more if something has to stop. And if it takes me being a extreme ruining the party by starting for being like, no, that's not. Okay. But the same for my female friends, like if I hear anyone being like he had a dog's Willie alike, we have to try and be better. What would that even mean, though, dogs willing? Yeah. To me like a little lipstick. I would say it's a little lipstick is small. It's like maybe round bit rounder at the end. It's thin. It's I haven't really experienced a definite on. I cannot believe this talk about. Trying to fight for change in describing dog's penis. For me. Fox is perfect. And it's why I'm looking for and I've yet to find it, but I feel like social conditioning. I think is like got way more to blame. Like, do you think is interesting talking about it's wonderful life because I suppose well loved films like that get a pass in some ways don't they because they're so all this scene is being so fundamentally good hearted. Yeah. That it's not about societal attitudes towards the sexes. There's other things to Terek lend totally turn is a product of the times that it was made in cetera. Just makes you you look at it, and you go this is a film that is universally loved and like is played everywhere. Yeah. But you're right. It is quite jarring. A lot of the time. Now, I mean even films from as recently as ten years ago. It's always from the male perspective. It's the guy or the man. Has the intrepid is funny is the goofball is a complex one is chain. Well, Well. it's even less than ten films are only just starting to change in that. I think it's about like making every everything from now on about a strong complex woman. And but it just makes you was a person reflect on your life. Go everything I've loved every piece of artwork that's inspiring. Every film every bit of music like ninety nine percent of it has been this likes telling this story of men being his story. It's been. Exactly, it's been his story. His story. Oh my God. Now..

But it's like, I guess with all the stuff that's come out like all this awareness in the in the industry with the way, women are treated and the horrible stuff. That's come out has definitely made me reflect on my life, and it's made me angry in that of my friend about this stuff. And it was like I realized that my I've recently broken up with some of them.

And now, you're serious. And now I'm furious because I was watching it building like this film. I've watched every because I'm such a kooky sweetheart every Christmas, I go and find a place where it's wonderful lives playing in like an everyman cinema. Something a red velvet Charon a Cup of tea, and I was loved it. And then this year, I was watching it. And I was like shopped up every woman in this film is why we're gonna eat prynne every woman this film is crying because this complex incredible man can't handle how much people love him, and how much responsibility and how much he's helped everyone in every single woman is giving him a play sausages all like tending to the children and like tiptoeing out the room. And then he just made me reflect back on every book every film. It's just everything I've loved and obviously by doing comedy and acting. I've always done this because I love it. I grew up being like a fiend for books and art, and blah, blah, blah. And then I watched. Indiana Jones of crocodile Dundee crocodile Dundee, and I was like little very strong female characters in that exactly sitting. There was some Indian women dancing in the corner. And then a blonde woman screaming I'm being like, I hate being dirty. The worst not the worst one. But particularly bad offender is Indiana Jones and the temple of doom. Yeah. My been that even at the time, though, people were saying what the hell is this? I'm literally all Kate. Catch those scream. Yeah.

"Spice brise with British actor comedian and writer tash Dmitri. You. Tash is being on the podcast before and she's a friend. It's always a great pleasure to see tash. She's one of the funniest nicest people, I know and compensation included talking about her part in staff. Let's flats the sitcom she appeared in alongside the show's creator. Who's also her brother, Jamie Dmitri conversation was recorded in London back in April of this year twenty eighteen so the show hasn't gone out that point, but when it did go out on channel four it was very warmly received and hopes a high for a second series next year.

"tash" Discussed on This Is Why You're Single
"So it was a good niche for you to to pick. Yeah. And I you know, I just think that. Dating is is it's to me. It's very secret time in a woman's life. I think that it sets the tone and the foundation for a lot of things in the future. And sometimes if we're doing 'cause we're nervous, and we just like wanted to be over with like, we don't realize how this really sets up a lot of our future years, and what this means. And just just realized that there's just so much bad information out there. I'm sure you guys have seen it. Absolutely. So piggybacking on the dating stuff. How can people make their perfect mate checklists law of attraction friendly? Oh, yes. So typic- great question. So typically, we when we think about that that checklist we think about like I want him to be tall. I want him to be, you know, like live in this area or have this kind of job to kind of these exterior things. And as you know, you can meet somebody, right? Who is maybe a certain height. Two people can have the same things. Right. Have the same height have the same career live in the same area? But their insides would be very different. So what happens is we attract these people, and we're like, oh, they have all this outside stuff. But it doesn't like it doesn't work from the inside. And that's that's where the that's where we go wrong. Because really attracting about is about energies about the inside love is about the heart. Really? So the ideas that we want to work on how we want to feel like that's how we actually call that that person in and people get nervous about doing a list from that place because they're like, why don't wanna shape. I don't want to date the short fat guy. You know, and the truth is like, you're not you're just because you're doing feelings this one of your things on your feelings. This could be I wanna be attracted like I wanna feel track. Which is a fair thing to keep on your list. Yeah. Yeah. Why we always say like whenever people right in there with somebody. That's just nice where like it's okay for you not to be into them. Like, you know, they're nice because you do have to be attracted I call those people good on paper. You could even have guys that act. They've got a great career, right? They could they could even match everything on your list. But still if if it's not that like deep chemistry. Those people are just good on paper or you meet those people to have all the exterior in the inside. They're all sorts of like messed up, you know, they're not available or they're not emotionally vulnerable or whatever it is. And it's because you were your your mind was it's kind of being judgmental in many ways because your mind is like choosing from these outside things thinking that like if a person has outside things as the kind of person they are. But it's not true. So what type of things should be on the list because we had a relationship expert, Andrew tash, and she's big on having just was it five things on the list..
