And anybody who hasn't been able to get their covid-19 shot because of being too far away from where they're happening, it looks like they're going to start coming to you. So of course what are they talking about right now? The second round the next round, we'll need to pay attention to the booster shots but what they're talking about. Now, not only as per next booster round about how they're going to do it. Will it be a separate shot? Will it be incorporated into a flu shot or perhaps a patch or a pill? It's interesting how they can do the boosters because your immunities already up your immunity song charged? I went through the two shot. Pfizer vaccine and very few side effects. I'm not too worried about it. Now granted, I don't like needles. I don't want a shot but because of covid-19 because of the increased concern for flu. I got a flu shot this year the first time too.

Neuroscientist Matthew Walker On Why Sleep Is Your Superpower

"Fact that sleep has fought. It's way through on every step of the evolutionary pathway. In fact if we look back we can even find sleep like states in earthworms which ancient from an evolutionary perspective. So in other words sleep evolved with life itself on this planet. And then despite all of those trappings it fought. Its way through heroically every step along the evolutionary pathway. In other words if sleep doesn't serve some absolutely vital set of functions. It's probably the biggest mistake that the evolutionary processes has ever meet right and we've now realized that it didn't make spectacular but that premise. That sleep evolved is usually founded on the idea that we were awake and then we evolved to sleep and one thought that crossed my mind. And i was perhaps stupid enough to write it in the book was i wonder if it's the other way around. Why white we assume that we evolved sleep. Why don't we assume that sleep is the defacto state of all birthed life on planet earth and its from sleep that wakefulness emerged and evolved now. Shy of a time capsule awesome serious smelling salts. I'm probably not going to be able to go back and figure that out. But i think it's an interesting way to to the evolutionary advantage of wakefulness is self evident right. We need to procreate when you defeat ourselves but less obvious is the visionary advantage of sleep. It just strikes us as being something that gets in the way as opposed to crucial for all the functions that you kind of go through syria adam in the book. And i think that's perhaps one of the reasons that people are so misunderstanding of sleep and so understandably neglecting of sleep because most people if you didn't understand what sleep is you think well my body get some rest. My mind is dormant and nothing could be further from the truth. There is an immense cascade of health. Benefits this constellation of night-time gifts that sleep will provide to your body and every operation the mind that we know is overhauled some spectacular

"When i called up margaret had a lot of questions for her about 'em are in apec so we started at the beginning. I was thinking margaret. I wanna do a little bit of a history of like how long this technology's been around and if you don't know like the super details of that that's that's totally fine. Do know the super details because ali written scientific papers about it s okay. I'm these ing. Okay now a lot of scientists have worked on marnie vaccine's over the years philip. Feltner catalan carrico. Drew weisman just to name a few. The work really started in the seventies but it wasn't until the nineties that scientists are testing out. The first marinate vaccines in mice. Most vaccines like the flu. Shot or whooping cough vaccine use bits and pieces or weakened form of the virus or bacterium to build up immunity but the amarna vaccines are not a whole virus. Or a whole. What you're putting in is a piece of just a piece of coding sequence. That then has your body make that single protein for instance one of the corona viruses proteins causes an immune response. That will protect you later when your body encounters the real thing. So that's the idea but there were two challenges researchers had deal with to get to where we are now with. Mri vaccines one challenge. Was that the. Mr is very and gets degraded very quickly and so it doesn't last very long and so the first challenge that has had to be overcome was to find the right way to formulate it. So i'd like to think of this as eminem so if you were to hold plain chocolate in your hands that chocolate would melt because your hands warm and so what happened was eminem's are away putting a candy coating around it so that you can now hold them in your hands.

Ahead of the Tokyo Olympics, Allyson Felix Is Running for Black Mothers Everywhere

"In two thousand eighteen decorated american sprinter allyson felix began the arduous process of conditioning. Her body for the twenty twenty olympics in tokyo. We all know what happened next. The pandemic broke out and the games were postponed for a full year which means that felix has essentially had to live through her trimester twice the newly popular term which was coined by author lawrence road in her twenty seventeen book of the same name in capsules often challenging months when many postpartum mothers rejoined the workforce moments of which felix has had many. Because it isn't just her track and field. Training that has required endurance. The nine time olympic medalist and the only woman to win six olympic track and field. Gold medals has become a vocal advocate for fetal and maternal healthcare and equal pay causes that she has taken up in front of congress and in a widely circulated new york times op. Ed in which he criticised nike for failing to add protections to her contract in the months surrounding the birth of her daughter in response the company announced a new maternity policy that guaranteed an athletes pay and bonuses for eighteen months surrounding pregnancy. This week proctor and gamble released a series of video celebrating felix's accomplishments both on and off the track as she prepares to return to the olympic qualifiers in june as a sprinter a season competitor and as a mom who still needs to negotiate childcare with her partner. I imagine the last year has been particularly interesting for. I mean everybody has their own version of hal. The pandemic has impacted them personally. But i can't imagine having trained for a full year expecting the games to happen. And then basically getting a year pause and it occurred to me that you are essentially in what is now called your fifth trimester which kind of evolves for many months. When you're sort of a new and working mom and you have a very unique job. So i'm very curious you know how did your life kind of change. You have a small child at home. You'd been training for a year trying to get back to where you need to be. Then you get a whole other year at any point. Did you sort of think. I'm not gonna do this. I was very doubtful. There was a time period. I think it was right when the olympics were announced that they were going to be postponed and our family had made so many sacrifices. Like you said we had worked so hard already to that point you know with dealing with the you know the exhaustion. The lack of sleep in it just felt like a whole 'nother year. You're asking us to do this it. It felt very very hard. And i felt like I was still kind of taking space degree. The loss at the olympics wasn't going to happen the way that i had imagine And then think after. I went through that then. I was like well. We've come too far this point we're all in like i've got to see this thing through But there were moments that that were just difficult.

What Is Intuitive Eating?

"So for people who are listening and this may be the first time you are hearing about the term intuitive eating. Maybe you're new to our podcast. I think it's a good idea to start with a general definition on one into beating his. I have scoured the interwebs for a definition. That is concise that. I really like and it happens to be by eliza ramsey who is a dietitian that has been on our podcast a couple times to talk about intuitive eating and her definition is intuitive. Eating is an approach to health and food. that has nothing to do with diets. Meal plans disipline or willpower. It teaches you how to get in touch with your body's natural cues like hunger fullness in satisfaction while learning to trust your body around food again so really intuitive meaning was founded in. Here's me that's the end of the definition intuitive beating was founded by two registered dieticians. Evelyn aaa who's been on our podcast and a least rash as a response to chronic dieting. So intuitive eating is essentially the of a diet and it's really learning to get in touch with your body and your unique needs. There are ten principles of intuitive eating. And i'm not going to go into all of them. You can get the book if you wanna learn more. Or there's we have a ton of podcast episodes about this. But you know number one is rejecting the diet mentality remembering. It's not about your like a willpower or being a failure. It's this system of diet culture. That really sets us up to fail. Another principle that i loved to discuss with clients is feeling your fullness right. So what is comfortable. Fullness feel a hick in your body and you know. How do we try to respect our fullness right how do we respect our body. Respect our our bodies kind of predetermined wheat in shape. So there's a lot to it. That is a very over-simplified definition of intuitive eating but i think a good place to

We are coming toward the end of the WPA season for sure the men still have a bunch of tournaments till to play this episode is a recap episode one that normally it feels like a February episode where you have all those tournaments in South America and. Well tournaments all over the globe on smaller tournaments leading up to the the hard court swing in in the United States. Don't you think? Yeah. Yes. So on the WPA side, this is sort of an anti-climax because the entire Asian swing was canceled. There will be no WTI finals and we just have astravo which just happened and lince and that's it done. Before we get into this this recapping of what's been going on I, want to get you on record as committing to this next episode that we're planning. That I'm trying to get you to try to get you excited about. Hopefully, recorded this weekend. On this episode, we're going to do a segment called yes or mess, and in that vein, it'll be a pop culture episode standalone. Where it's called yes or mess or the popoff Colon yes or mess. I duNNo. It's GonNa be it's GonNa be pop culture topics that we talk about and decide whether it's a yes moment or a mess moment. Nothing too long hopefully like a thirty forty minute format where we just you know pop off also Halloween is coming up on Saturday I don't know that this weekend but I, can do something I grew up I could do a little segment on like favorite Halloween movies while that's. On the agenda because there's a timely news, you clearly read that agenda I've skimmed it you skim. No I'm talking about horror movies. I saw one. The Halloween movie hocus pocus yet. That is the one that's we're going to be tug at about which for for Millennials, it is the holiday movie period of any holiday. I saw a gay on twitter who is younger than us doesn't take much to be younger than on these days. On the twitter sphere who said that he had just watched Hocus pocus for the first time in his life. and. That was it's not often you find truly startling new. Oh, I thought you were going to say intimate anymore he hated it. No. I'll just the fact that he hadn't seen it as a gay. Anyway so look out for that. You know the past month or so of two Grand Slams back to back a few masters tournaments. Tennis getting back has been very exhausting. Imagine what it's like to actually play and something that we've seen in the last couple of weeks. A lot of players are talking more expansively about what the mental and emotional toll playing pandemic has been. Maria Saturday talked about that today Victoria as Rankin talked about that. It's it's so much more than just. Just training, it's taking up the tests, the warring whether or not you're positive for a lot of these tennis players they believe in this whole false positive thing being rampant. The worry about whether you're going to be kicked out of a tournament unwarrantedly it has happened that was like Mariah Carey adverb right there. Yes. Unwarranted League. She of abandoned Lee. Yes. It is my one and my right. To make upwards as I go provided, the meaning is conveyed as a yes it was. But, a lot of these players are also traveling with children which adds an entire new dimension or they're traveling without their children, which is also difficult. Debbie GAFA talked about this a couple of weeks ago, and then he subsequently tested positive. It's it's a lot for the players right now I think sometimes you have to flee the country you're in illegally higher your private jet and landed an undisclosed location. Where the world is Samuel Query Novia it is. It was A. Mind Lastingly Wild Story. And hat tip to an Marseille. One of her longtime listeners who went and checked flightpaths after the story broke. And provided evidence or educated guesses where he could have landed. Well, there was this one private flight that left the morning of unfortunately we don't have a day new to the story yet, but we'll talk about this a bit later I. WE'RE GONNA recap the results over the past few weeks we went from having no tennis for so long to happening all the tennis in such a short period of time and one of the players who played the most since was options. Alexander's and he's done some of the most winning. Yes. He's one to colognes. What does he smell Eric? ha ha ha ha. I saw so many headlines, making Cologne jokes after he won those tournaments and I thought there were so cheesy Germans must be like, why do you call it that the city is called Kurt. A lot of folks were wondering why are we having a Cologne one and Cologne to is to buy aisher was see can I take my false impression? I thought that Cologne one and two were two different opportunities for different groups of players to gain points and money. Apparently, that is not the case. Well, it was an opportunity for players to gain points and money just not different groups. Right. I didn't realize that the same group of players could could play both. These five tournaments were announced as additions to the Calendars Ostrava, and on the W., t., which happened this week as while the to Cologne events, and then there was also Sardinia which happened. And the Kazakhstan event, which is happening now to coincide with the Borat premier. Well mackey. McDonald. was like listen how many actually watch the Premiere Borat while income extent? Back to this these clone events, it was weird in that there was a confusion with it been Cologne one in Cologne too, and then there was the actual official names of events which was confusing as well the Cologne indoors, and then the Cologne championships both sponsored by bet one hulks. So was the bet one hoax indoors and the bet one hoax championship Cologne one Cologne to, and you're thinking well wise abetting company sponsoring these two events if you're an idiot like I was, and then you realize that it's a like a betting company mattress company bedding. Bedding as. Opposed to. Betting I.

But I really get a mile so that he is. Hello everybody. Welcome back to the Body Servant Jonathan? And I'm James. This is episode two or three. So much has happened in tennis since we were last on air. It was a challenge to put together an agenda that was coherent and timely because the moment you put something on paper or something else happens tennis has been moving at a frantic pace as everything's started to come back to life yet, we've had our first official events since March starting in Italy and then in Prague, and Kentucky, the hasn't resumed yet, but they will tomorrow in Cincinnati having playing qualifying in Cincinnati before we get into what's been happening just a quick note to thank you all for reaching out regarding or last episode it was to be Cliche a Labor of love and we are that you enjoyed it. Yeah. You know it was laborious but those are fun to do I continue to find gaps in my historical tennis knowledge and it's it's really cool to be a lifelong learner about the history of tennis where to start. You wanted to start with pronunciations or yes. That's right. The WTA has asked players to send an audio clips of them, pronouncing their own names which the. On its website for a little while this is where we get a bit sanctimonious about it. We have always tried to pronounce names properly we have often failed. We will continue to try and it's easier. No because we have all the tools at our disposal. It's in the trying. And while I don't expect us to get it one hundred percent right all the time we did spend about fifteen minutes today going through player pronunciations that we'd be talking about on this show. Now, what just fail I know you really setting us up. To be mocked here. But the point is that commentators very often do not try at all. No not that they can't make those sounds with their mouths is that there's not even really an attempt to to put emphasis on the right syllable or any of that like listen after this was announced and folks started to be aware of these pronunciations being available. There was a British commentator I don't know who it was who went with Mutuel. So you know there's being wrong and then there is making a making an attempt to be in the general vicinity.

I've tried my hardest every single time win the matches that maybe I should always wind or but I really gave a mile so that for me is hello. Everybody welcome back to the body. Serve Jonathan James. This is a special presentation. They're all special presentations at this point. It's been a minute we haven't been with you for about two and a half almost three weeks and we've been trying to keep very regular during the quarantine so this is a this is an aberration. Whose fault is that mine. It's fine you know we're all we're doing the best we can at the moment. It's no you're just trying to have me say something out of pocket a disclaimer. This episode will have zero tennis on it. This is a strictly pop culture episode. And it's in the vein of a show that I had pitched to you at one point that maybe we could do something like that But we did not have the bandwidth as it turned out to do a whole other show. So no we're taking. They're taking advantage of this gap in the tennis to do something a little bit different. We're going to take you through some trending topics. Non Covert related trending topics which are difficult to find these days. We're GONNA talk about TV that we've been watching because we've been consuming television voraciously. I can barely remember what we've watched and finally we're going to debut are Advice segment. I have been wanting to do this for so long. I'm so excited that people submitted questions and we're going to do our best to answer with empathy with an open mind and you're doing too much and some humor okay. Okay let's just leave it at that. Okay folks we'll see right here show. Don't tell my high school. English teacher said as of right now the segment is entitled body and soul. We'll see it sticks shortly episodes about pop culture but it's also about stuff that's been part of the quarantine -ment shall we say Pump News that's been in the public consciousness stuff that folks been talking about and also a lot of things that people have needed to get through it. Essentially right tyra banks has had a week of it. Your tyra is trending again through through. No actions of her own. Really people have been circulating videos from both her talk. Show and America's next top model and sort of poking fun at how completely out of pocket tower was so frequently. Not I mean yes. Some are making fun of it but some are real mad. Big Mad right and justifiably. So can I tell you I have never in my life. Seen an episode of America's next top model. I how you may be surprised to hear that but not why would folks be surprised because I am a gay and also because I love mess? Yes Oh that is a that is exactly. I'm just not interested in modeling or fashion village. Never watched it some of the nuggets. There was this segment where the woman who would go on to win. The season was confronted by Tyra on error because the cast was sent to the dentist and this young woman decided not to get gap in her teeth closed. And Tara's like would you do? Do you think that somebody with of a modeling contract should have a gap to doesn't Kate? Moss have again doesn't Madonna ago. It's historically been proven that it does not stop folks from going places where Lauren. Hutton has a very famous. She was a famous model. Anyway besides the point kind of kind of department but she also had multiple segments where the models were dressed in black face Where we have white woman dressing up as Polynesian woman where we have white women giving a shade of face that are in a grungy could only dream of no and it's just presented like. Oh Yeah we're just showing all different kinds of beauty on the.

I didn't win the matches that maybe I should always wind or but I really get a mile so that for me is hello. Everybody welcome back to the body serve. I guess I should say welcome to. Tbs Live the body served live. I'm Donna and I'm James. We did not initially intend to release this as an episode. But we did a little thing on zoom where we Did the body and bones of regular body serve episode where we're able to interact with some of the listeners? Thank you to everybody. Who showed up and participated. Were able to go back and listen to some of the do that recorded. Not Knowing would sound and it turns out. It's okay enough to presented an episode. So does this count as episode one ninety five. Is this a real episode? We put the work in. We've got the time in so so we right now. We're just recording a little bit of a preamble. But what you'll hear from most of this episode is the live zoom session that we did on Saturday April twenty fifth. It was our first foray into well. Video really not only video was live streaming. It was it was an experience and it was. We learned some very important lessons. We will password protect or maintain a waiting room if we ever do this again. Yeah so if you do ever you zoom waiting room definitely but other than that held up at the beginning we should also apologize to the folks who the handful of folks were the start because that was not what you wanted to hear or see on yourself so that was our negligence and we are very sorry for. That won't happen again but for the rest of the call it was great it was it was really cool to see all of your faces. It was a great exercise for us Because it's challenging it's We're not alive. Show you know. We do a lot of editing so this was a chance for people to see us how we normally record an episode. We may still do a bit of editing yet with this live recording depending on how long it runs once we get through and listen to the whole thing yeah might not be good but during this time we have we everyone has to pay to try new things survive just to stay sane and this was really a cool thing for us. It was fun. I don't know if everything that we wanted to say was said on the show because at the start we were kind of helter skelter scrambling all over the place in our heads trying to recover from the start and pay attention to everything that was going on in real time for the first time because it was a new experience for us that said the one thing that we want ad in this preamble before we get into the episode is an addendum to that segment on the Hyannis Week. That the Joker Pitch Family had the joke. And the Nola Fam- well that's the part while we had some damning things to say about Novak and Yelena and everything that happened we do spare a thought for Djokovic fans. I've never seen so many Jovovich fans really having some of them a come to Jesus moment some of them are moment of real grappling with fandom as this was unfolding and it's a fraught trying experience to have to consider your favorites as people who are not perfect who exist outside of what you hold on the playing field in this case the tennis court. I was surprised that some people were especially like some of the more ardent fans were willing to criticize Novak. There were some people who dug in their heels even further and probably you expressed some views. They don't even believe. But because fandom is so all consuming a lot of folks they were willing to suspend part of themselves to defend their favorite. We've done segments that dealt with fandom as a fetish object. You tweeted about that this week when this was happening and we kind of added to bat called Phantom as a fetish object and disease right. I was just so annoyed. That's why I called it a disease. I didn't really think through all the scientific implications of that but yeah it can be contagious. It can be an addiction which is a disease it can cause you to put your blinders on. Yeah be willfully ignorant to science for one right. It was just yeah. It was a very weird week and tennis. We also talked about Roger. Federer's tweet leak. I guess or maybe it was this Reveal that the wgn the ATP are considering a merger of sorts to become one large governing body and player Association for all of Men's Women's Senate which is fascinating and there's a lot to think through their some folks in the and the zoom chat mentioned that this felt like a PR move with the speed that some of the players responded to it that they knew it was coming and apparently this was something that was fleshed out a little bit more on the NPR. Podcast with remove a little. We haven't had a chance to listen to that But that that's an interesting spoke in the wheel as well. Bright is this was actually coordinated rather than because at at first it seemed really fly by the seat of your pants. Another bit that we. I honestly can't recall if we mentioned it. But I wanted to say that for all the issues that we had with. Federer's tweet and the hate saying with the optics of it and what? It felt like the way that that should have happened was for federal timberlake. Hey Serena Williams. This is great but we do this right instead. It felt like the men were going alone and driving this thing when we know now that there have been a lot of discussions behind the scenes involving countless part is that we're not even close to being privy to and so if this were indeed a PR Rollo. It was a pure fail to my mind. I mean I think something that we missed in what you're going to hear coming up. Is that recklessness is not really something that's part of Roger Federer's brand so what we probably should have considered you and I is that if it appears reckless on Rogers Park. Maybe there's something we're not seeing. Maybe there's something that we don't know about this because that's not really like him you know he's very measured. He's very Thoughtful generally maybe. He's just got too much time right now right. Is there anything else you WANNA add before we get into the no no? It's already going to be a long episodes. So what follows is our zoom session with a bunch of our listeners. It's basically an entire episode of the body. Surf plus some interactive stuff at the end. There's a name the tennis player there's a couple of MK's One of them. `specially delivered by Doctor Sholls and you also get to hear an impassioned defense of Sloan Stevens by him at some point in our defense. We were asked a question. We did not proffer anything. Negative toward slowing. No defense is necessary. There was no negatively about Sloan. Okay perhaps this is something that will do again at some point in the future. For those who participated. Thank you very much and hopefully for those who were unable to make it. You'll be able to enjoy what's to come so Tennis has been slow for weeks and then this week all hell breaks loose and none of Roger Federer himself is the one to get things kicked off. So we're GONNA start with that whole story about this alleged merger slash acquisition. That's happening or has been happening since January so to federal tweets on the twenty second which is three days ago just wondering. Am I the only one thinking that knows men's and women's tennis to be united and come together as one thoughts on that Yeah so I don't know if Roger knew exactly what he was doing by saying this obviously he didn't doesn't vacuum he obviously talks. Were going on for a while right between the wgn ATP possibly the ATF. It wasn't obvious. Okay now so Roger tweezers roughing it all quote tweets a little bit later and says hi Roger Federer as you know our discussions. I completely agree. That would be great to get out of this world crisis with the Union of men's and women's tennis in only one organization which totally sounds like. Ross's voice right totally like how he talks some sleuthing. That was gun and tweets were brought up discovered where he had previously tweeted in that vein before as discussions of Benito's the one who speaks like that Rafa but it is in keeping with his twitter account. Yeah it's definitely Benito so we've heard like sort of rumblings about this from undergo deshea. Who is the new chairman and President? But I didn't know it was this far along. And I guess it was this crisis. That sort of spurred the talks a bit further. People are bored and there's obviously like serious financial implications two tours being off for the entire year so much of their revenue comes from the actual tournament operating. What was strange about was that federal took upon himself yet. What is his authorisation other than being the goats? And feeling that on a whim. I'm going to break not break this news because pretty much. Everybody seemed to be caught off guard. By it right Serena Williams tweeted and deleted really fast. Something I thought this was supposed to be confidential for now So though while we assume that's what you were talking it actually. It could have been about anything about burly bras about gatorade like one of her sponsors Alexis but it was probably my guess is that it was probably about Roger Tweet. Okay my question is why. Didn't Federer do this alongside Serena like if the if the goal here is emerging of the tour is joining forces? You have the two biggest players under tour Do that kind of interplay Roger seemingly striking out on his own not including anybody and then having Raffle Tag-team re tweet him. When we've seen a known that rough as not the most astute when it comes to these things and I sort of wonder like so we're GonNa talk about Novak a little bit later but where is Novak in all of this like he's the president of the Players Council. I imagine he's been a big part of these talks as well. Why was he not part of this miniature? Tweet storm well. He had his own things going on this week. And we'll get to that short around butter. That has something to do with. It was weird to see like Roger and Rafa tweet at each other and sort of Darren. I read your comment and we will get there but like as the President Council. Someone who's been super active politically on the ATP. Where was he like does? Did he feel a little bit sore about not being included in that original Sort of leak obsession that is speculation. Pure speculation reckless. What by whom you. Oh I mean I don't think we can project it onto Novak in this. I think it speaks more to Roger and rough being in their own. Little bubble is came right after they had their own. Tbs Live kind of situation. Oh right there there instagram. Why did I say TV slow? Yeah what are your thoughts on Nadal and his press conference from Australian Open? Two Thousand Nineteen being circulated after this news. Oh Yeah yes. Oh so. Rima Aba Lille whose attendance journalist took like a little bit of flack from the fandom for for tweeting out this video of Rafa. When did you say it was twenty one thousand nine hundred Australian Open Twenty eight hundred twenty nine thousand nine? Yeah and he's like he's had to answer a lot of questions before about pay equity in tennis and I don't think he's ever really done an amazing job at answering the questions. He struck out a few times. But it's but he's had a lot of practice you know and so in the past few years. It's been sort of annoyance that he has to even answer the question and frustration. That whatever he he says is going to be misconstrued which is honestly as fair. We saw this week with a Sasha Zverev quote something he said in German that was circulated and even I looked at it and it was like. Oh my God. This kid is such an idiot and then Rene Benfield translated for us. And it's like okay like in the context. It actually. Wasn't that bad. It was it was actually totally reasonable. So- I digress. Rafa.

"Like ringing off just happens her other cover and probably the one that I enjoy the most is I want to know what love is vocally. It's not necessarily her best performance. There's a lot of vocal stitchery at the end it but it's like the biggest single in Brazilian history of nowhere like she could tour forever in Brazil because of the song but I absolutely love it also has one of the worst videos ever made in her career but but best but best because it hamp beyond like it has gay rights in it it has green screen like when she goes like I want the market and love it at the same time I it is Tampa perfection. That song I stay in love one of her best rb gems ever made. Candling IS ON MY LIST. Fly like a bird is on my list. Her grammy moments with fly like a bird. Such fuck. You still didn't give her the grandma. She deserved worse. Not Listen Mariah Carey made daydream and ruled the pop charts for eighteen months with that album and got zero grams. That is one of the greatest travesties and biggest black marks on dot organization. That they'll get two thousand six and we belong together. You WanNa talk about a perfect pop. Song dead's infallible. Yes for me. Now we belong together as my answer to your always be my baby even like it's one of those songs like even if you don't like it you have to look at the production. The songwriting the vocals. Everything like it is is. It's almost unassailable. And the Remix is and these days. The grammys are awarding pop. Songs At the time it was not fashionable but and then going back to her early career vanishing some might say overawed. I say just enough looking in is so vulnerable and only time to my knowledge that she's ever performed live. She did it with a broken elbow. Oh yeah yeah and she could barely get through the song because she was so emotional and I listened to that rather than the the album track. If it's over come on okay look up the SNL performance of that time. Look up the grammy performance of that. Song. Look up any performance of that song. That's a real pro additional shit right. There doesn't none of these girls today can do that and finally anytime you need a friend. I will be there Because you think it's just a run of the mill pop song and then you realize you have been taken to church and then all of a sudden I'm enrapture. The that song is incredible. So those are those are some of my favorites. I know it's a lot I know this missiles in abridged version. I mean I only picked four. I picked a lot. I just couldn't not not pick those. Yeah and if I had to pick one I'm GONNA cheat and it's going to be a live performance because again with that theme what resonates her be. Et Tribute to Stevie wonder singing die. That is where she makes the most use of her lower register in her entire career and it is incredible. I challenge look on the India also stream talking book by talking book by Stevie. Wonder downloaded whatever you need to do. Mystical stevie wonder early nineteen seventies that she will below your mind. You're not even ready. I believe when I fall in love. It will be forever the counter melodies at the end that song girl. If you want to know about that Song Barack Obama show. That's that's on their wedding. Yeah you and I not. Yep and that's before well I guess did it before it was our song but we learned that after it was already our song and the story behind that is that we were driving down ninety six. Be in New York one of our first dates and you started playing in your car on your your CD player St John's DB's version of you. And I from Talking Book and Adopt Point Keeping Mind. Two thousand seven. Youtube was very new. I hadn't even started using it yet. A lot of these videos and performances that we take for granted weren't on Youtube yet and so the only time I had heard that song was watching Mariah performed on that beat bt special. While I was living in Jamaica I know that Song I love that. I've heard it before like Maria sang that song and so then I went and looked it up on his leg while this is a gateway into stevie wonder for you gave me Stevie wonder I give you Mariah Carey. Well you didn't give me Mariah Carey I give. She was my first cassette tape in one thousand. Nine hundred ninety. Okay OK- whatever you're stunned of was not where it is. Now I if you Mariah Carey you gave me Stevie. Wow what a moment a moment most pleasing to me in Whitney's career which is the segue. We're supposed to pick one song from Whitney one from aretha. So let me go. Let me go quickly my favorite song by Winnie. How will I know She is playing with you on that song. She's playing all over that Song. She been giving pop song that a lot of girls could sing and it is bursting at the seams with her voice. She's having so much fun with it. There's so much depth like the the incredible scope of her talent is. It's just like overflowing this song that feels like a trifle. And then you listened to it a million times and you realize it's not that is gorgeous as far as a refund. My favorite song. Thanks to you. I know her cover of a bridge. Over troubled water the Franklin it's nineteen seventy-one she's covering one of the most successful singles in history at that point at was only a copier and she and she decides to open the first ninety seconds with an organ solo that she plays herself. I mean and just the rest of the song absolutely perfect. I couldn't pick just one from aretha. So the other is when she sits down to the piano and opens. I never loved a man. The way of you. The Piano riff changed music forever. That and that's not an overstatement aretha sitting down at the piano recording that album and nine hundred sixty seven changed everything so go listen to it. Okay I have. Maybe an unpopular opinion about Whitney. I Adore Whitney Adore Whitney. Yeah that's not unpopular does not unpopular. I Love Whitney. I love her but I'm not. Oh here putting on a records. I don't really buy list. Her record suggests what how will I know absolutely yes but for me? Personally I've always loved. Whitney's life stuff more than her recorded. Stuff her one moment in time live on the grammy's mind blasting gets just a woman at her absolute best in her palm showing off and showing out and so my favorites of hers. She did a live concert for the troops thing in the early nineties and she sits there in a green bright green jumpsuit as she is want to do at the time and goes off and sings a seven minute version of a song for you and it features one of the most powerful extended held notes in the history of all music. That doesn't sound strained and it it comes out of nowhere and you're just in awe. That was the power Whitney from. It was her live vocal and what she could do whenever she wanted however she wanted she almost never sang. The same song live twice in the same way right. She put her own spin and stank on it. That we know was intentional in that. It wasn't done that way under recording because Clive Davis and all those Ariza folks did not want her something to black in the eighties. So when you went out on stage and she showed you what she was capable of where she came from in the church. And so that's what resonates most with me and the other song that I love of hers. A live performance again. I'm cheating but it's not a it's a quadruplet a quartet of corporate and it's featuring cousin. Dion Luther Vandross and Stevie wonder those four together singing. That's what friends are for. And you take one of the most saccharine songs in Pop music history and you have these four singers just well. These three singers showing out cousin Dionne Hamadan. Don't don't do dion like that. That's hers Song. Jesus legend She's iconic. And you don't get to do that to me because I'm the one who's always reminding how incredible I say that because John Wasn't showing it on that she leads she let the kids take it. She did Herbert. Meanwhile Stevie is putting his name into lyrics through the Vandross is doing his singer who and then it's left a witness to get her solo toward the mid still the two-thirds part of the song. And after you have your singing behind stevie wonder Luther Vandross just open up your mouth and give us that it's so effortless and her singing. The word four in that sequence is something I rewind forever like. She opened up her mouth and rainbows came in God game. Exactly that's what it was and it was so effortless as far as they're concerned bridge over troubled water. You said I gave that to you if I go before you. You're playing at my funeral. I've said that Julia on these airwaves. Also aretha performing that live on the grammys in one thousand nine hundred ninety one nine is the performance that you need to walk. Yeah it's been taken down. It's back again on Youtube. You can't stop these stands. This is the Internet okay. It is the best example of her talent from the piano playing. I think so too. The Gospel roots blending it with the pop ballad putting her own spin on it and then I have two other ones. I knew you're waiting. It's Pop Berlitz her duet with George Michael at a time when her career needs a rework. She's navigating the ages after dominating the seventies on the RB charts. She won practically like the first seven. Aren be Grammy Awards In this late six of the seventies that was her media then she goes into the eighties off the back of disco and she has two wheel income again in her forties not dissimilar to Tina Turner and patio belted. The same thing he did all these gorgeous in all these black greats have to find a new footing in pop music landscape and aretha Franklin taps. George Michael to give us this pop masterpiece and he'll never not invigorate that's on can I in of her like eighties duets. I like ever changing times a lot. I really prefer that speaking of things I've given to you. Yes Michael McDonald detractor. We hate. Oh my God you hated that song for so long so okay so Michael McDonald. If you don't know wasn't Doobie brothers. A hugely successful act and and Solo artist tearful black woman love. I know I know the DOOBIE brothers huge. He goes on to collaborate with a lot of black rb singers in the eighties. Because he hasn't sort of blue eyed soul appeal and so he does yes with aretha. He does a timeless classic on my own Patio. Which I also love this. But it's taken me some time to get there. This is Michael. Mcdonald's is thirteen years. This is the first time I've heard this ever Jamie Times. See that clock Paul. No he don't buy me Ed. I love that Shit. Yeah I but I only introduced that santio really in the last four years I know so now. It's on my spotify on the way to go. Okay go on. It's your listen. This man beside me has mocked me. Endless ages people can change and people like me are willing to admit that they had been wrong in the past but I also want you to give more credited it is music knows where it was mandated. These past few years I have come around on Ms Anita Baker on Michael McDonald on all of Aretha Patties. Eighty stuff. Like no for real. I overlooked it. That's on me thank you. We're turning the page on the eighties and finally my last aretha truck. Her Catalog is unrivaled. I could have a six piece of vinyl set on just like the this intials so this boys don't like what speaks to us and the final one is angel. She comes on the record and she says I got a cold. The other day from my sister my sister caroline who was underlined. She said Aretha come on home. I got the song I gotTa play for you and then it starts gotta find me and it's it's so soft it's so smooth and it's so emotive and Yeah I love it. Love everything about it. Her Sister Caroline who is rumored and pretty much known to be a lesbian and had her availing singing her that she tried what she was more successful behind the scenes as a writer and she wrote for a couple of songs that became successful angel being one of them and it leads me to believe that while. Aretha was very tight lipped about speaking on things. I believe she was an ally and yet all right. That's the story of Angel of I don't want to pick just one year is supposed to pick just one. You pick like three for each picked to if I got for my fun aretha songs. I like Baby bathing and I say a little prayer for you. I like the the late sixties early seventies stuff from aretha mostly. That's my favorite favorite stuff. Her first record on Atlantic is incredible and also from Whitney heartbreak hotel. Hello okay this is on one. Whose voice was noticeably damaged and diminished in one thousand nine hundred ninety eight nine hundred ninety nine and she said Kelly faith come join me on this on joining Jan show. Clive Davis what he could have had all these years right. I won't be masters of all. I'M GONNA outsing Kelly price and faith owns but we are going to collaborate and do this absolute awesome. R&b Jam in Nineteen Ninety. Nine was right jab leaves off and listen loves not right but it's okay if gay rights that's what that is. Thank you for the question. Maybe we should do. It's been a podcast about only this about the trinity the name of the podcast the Holy Trinity. And then we can like. We've other people in like when Selene tried to out saying horita Divas Live. That's a whole nother thing. Apparently very controversial some for me. Let's let's not get into that right now. Thank you all for the questions. We didn't get to all of them. That doesn't mean we won't in the future but were coming up on two hours right now. We just have to cut it off. But thanks for listening to Episode one eight hundred seventy seven. Yes seven a we will eventually recap with the tournaments that are going on right now. I know my boo gotten is doing well..

"After having lived through the turmoil he's no looking for a new mariah and there's all this shady shit going on behind the scenes she's been sabotaged and she decides not only. Is she going to make a total break in the direction of her career and do the music that she wants to do? But she's going to release the first single with a video. That's clearly depicting Tommy Mottola and taking a dig at him and she's GonNa do the NBA music that she wants to do and to that end breakdown. I think is her most perfect song. Lyrically genius when you think about what she's saying. And how it flows over the melody she sing rapping alongside bone thugs and harmony. Like ain't nothing in one thousand nine hundred seven people take for granted she makes things look so easy that other folks would never dare to do her influence is. It's I don't even know what to say. Her intonation Unsung the way that she imitates there Style is unbelievable. Ear For music is so underrated. Oh and she also fell out with her creative partner Walter. F Nausea during the production of butterfly and still got a number one on a mile even though he says that. Song was incomplete because it didn't quite finish it because they broke up yet. Laker should just find Diane Warren Shit. Okay this is our and be sometimes. You need to dial back the orchestration.

"News sources scrape podcasts and scrapes social media content without credit. Of course of course. I don't think we've reached that level that we're being but but some of our the only time our podcast. The only time it happened was when we asked federal boat the prospect of an openly. Gay Tennis Player. And we'd see stuff reported places without accreditation as to where and West and Western. The only make no mistake though. Tennis journalists are taking cues from tennis. Twitter they tennis twitter informs some of the questions that they ask some of the topics that they are interested in and they're forwarding and press conferences. I don't believe the Margaret Court questions would have such urgency and such belief without the noise coming from tennis twitter. I sincerely believe that if twitter ceased to exist and you know someday it will will migrate will the phantoms migrate. And I think the answer is yes but being A media studies person like myself. The medium is the message so the the nature of this community is going to change based on the form based on the medium that it it lands in so you know the content coming out of forums and instagram and stuff is going to be very different and that's informed by the medium itself so like I feel like twitter. I found the place that suits me best so if twitter kind of became not cool or didn't exist anymore. I don't know how how I would live in like a tick tock world you know what I mean. You'd wake up and make your crackers and drink your coffee. Make my crackers or this gives your chips. Ahoy see room just nibbling all day and deal with it. I don't know what I'm not saying. It's the end of the world but I'm saying that fandom and conversation and even activism looks different based on the medium. I think that you would find a different outlet. Yes it might not have the same gravitas or the same reach as twitter as tennis. Twitter as it's taken this time to cultivate the reach and import that it has but you'd start from the ground up again. Yeah Yeah people and people have done that. Yeah people older than tennis forums. People were out on chat rooms tennis forums. Before before twitter happened they migrated. It'll just change if you don't have plans for sister podcast on culture and entertainment. Can you tell me about your favorite pods in those spaces? This comes from at Miller grim grim. Yes we mentioned earlier that we don't listen to a lot of sport guts or tennis podcasts. But I'm a I'm a huge podcast fan. One of my faves is this American life. Which is kind of I feel the the original the or podcast not really pop culture entertainment podcast but I like hit parade which is from slate. A guy named Chris Milan three. I think his name is is a chart scholar basically so he does seem episodes about the history of the billboard charts. He's done stuff about the British new wave. He's done one on woodstock about Mariah Carey's Christmas. What are some other ones that I liked? He did one about basically Madonna's entire career Elton John and he has really a holistic view of the charts and artists career. It's fascinating okay. I listen to these podcasts. Because you are the curator over podcast when we're doing roach. When we're traveling back to Rochester visits and what have you I find hit parade boring and you you tried to really get onboard with the Mariah Christmas stuff and there was literally nothing that I found informative. Okay wow he did do a follow up that expanded on Mariah's career. That was very cool guessed. It wasn't just Christmas enough Yucca. Serious thing I'm GONNA listen to not want to maybe change my mind. Maybe I want to say that. It's been well over a year now but I tried folks. I tried to get us to branch out and have a sister podcast a pop culture podcast and I pitched it. I came up with names. I even had a pitch for the first episode which would have been a deep dive into the boys. Mine and the Brendan. Monica feud rivalry sisterhood. That could have been and I was told that the bandwidth to not have I would love to do it but who I do not have time to do it. Well like we we do. The body serve almost every week or every other week. It's a lot it is. I'm just saying I thought it was something that we tried. It might be fun. It would be fun just putting that out okay other other ones that I like. You must remember this which is kind of a one woman band. Karina Longworth has done a hundred and fifty six episodes already about old Hollywood. Mostly she does reenactments voiceovers. Just such a talented storyteller. Thou one is so worth checking out. I enjoyed the Dolly Parton. Yes podcasts. Dolly Parton America which I think we still have a few more to listen we do Dolly Parton is infinitely fascinating to me. Save for the Miami's that she's selling in dollar word which is covered on the podcast. Obviously the of course the read is one of those is really one of those signposts podcasts. One of the podcast that has come to define this this medium. They are incredible. They're fearless and we've probably borrowed a lot of stuff from them. I do want to say that and I'm giving you a platform here because you want to do like a dared. Debbie Dare Susan. What does it abby? Yes you've long. Wanted to do. A dare abby segment and also like that segment on the read where folks submit quadrants and Raider letters radio others. You WanNa do something like that on our show. Yes and our friend. Meg really really wants to come on. If we ever do it. Advice Column Section and so if there is an appetite for that we would love to do it. We'd like to hear from you and you would send us stuff we could do it anonymously. Create a burner email account. We don't even have to know it's you exactly critic burner account. Tell us about the mess in your life and we will give or I. I love this. I believe it or not. We are very non judgmental when it comes to people's personal lives I think so. I think that's true. I would be excited to see where it could go. Yes so again. Let us know if you're into that because we would be and we listen to what's to T- as well. What's he have audio yet? They need to fix our levels but they get amazing guests. They get a lot of obviously a lot of drag race girls coming on but a lot of other famous interesting people if you can get past ru pauls pull yourself up by the bootstraps little girl. Self-help bullshit there is a lot of self-improvement bordering on rugged individualism going on. But when Rupaul is legitimately tickled by something and he has to kind of pull away from the MIC. And just cackle for a minute. It's some of the best minutes I've spent in my life. It's a high. It's hard not to his along with him is incredible. If you want kind of a taste Michaela Cole was on recently. That was very funny. Sierra and Casey Moss graves were guest judges on drag race recently. That's definitely worth checking out. So I hope that answers your question grim and this brings us to our final bit where we get to laxed poetic about Mariah Whitney and Aretha if you know from my twitter bio that's my holy trinity. That's that's the turnouts. That's my Holy Trinity. Someone in our email asked the question. About what our favorite mariah songs. And we say someone because we don't want to be anonymous or not if you know if we published this and you say why don't you mention. My name will mention it next time. Just didn't WANNA do it without permission. Asking what our favorite Mariah songs are is a Pandora's box. We do an entire to our show about this. So we're going to move through it fairly quickly and then vern. Jones asked if we could choose. Only one Mariah Whitney aretha. So can I start because your your the Mariah expert? So can I just go through my Mariah songs quickly? Or and then I'll give my one at the royal my one so Mariah songs than I love my my shortlist Calico that keeps the keys. What sample is genius and it deserves a number one? It is such a smooth chill quiet storm song. I absolutely adore it from butterfly. Butterflies my favorite album period like by anyone ever heard. It's the greatest gift ever given to. Yeah because when we met in two thousand seven you did not no I knew. Of course I love this song singles but didn't know about but as a cohesive work of art so to this day you can't really listen. We both have sons in that out on the album that we cannot listen to really anymore. You can't listen to butterfly because I was your butterfly. When we're doing long distance please. Can you leave something as a mystery? Please no but I can't listen to outside anymore because that got me through what I needed needed to get through and I've made it to the other side and I don't need to. I think it got a lot of people through But if I'm to pick a song from butterfly I love as far as like a deep cut baby doll because it is just a a beautiful display of those lush complex nineteen nineties. R&b Vocals those layered vocals. I agree door. It and related my favorite deep cut off. The Post amounts patient era is candy. Blame because you're giving US brandy. You're giving US ninety. R&b These vocals that probably took ten different takes in the studio to layer on top of each other absolutely gorgeous low key. R&b Song Love It. That's been the story of Mariah's latest career giving us the quality great. R&b When nobody wants that they don't deserve it and then finally before we too are one. My last one is fly like a bird. Her Best Gospel Song. This authentic kind of Contemporary Gospel. She wasn't trying to be to pop or anything. That was pure church. That Hammond or in everything absolutely adore the song and cuts off exactly where it's supposed to on a whistle tone. Are you done yes. What's your favorite song? The Waldheim Mariah said you were going to give a yes so my one song. If I were to say you know to someone who never heard Maria. This is who she is. Of course. You know it's always be my baby. For a number of reasons I think A lot of what defined rise early career is perfectionism and always be my baby to me is her most perfect pop song. It it is perfectly ridden recorded everything about it. It feels out of time. It feels in the stall GIC. It is an earworm. It's light but it makes you feel something like it's there are so few perfect pop songs out. There and Mariah has several of them. But that's the one I picked because it means a lot to me but it just it's a confection. We hadn't met me. Oh like it's pop confection. But it is so masterfully. Done okay. Mariah's early career was defined by perfectionism. That's where like everything was firing at the highest level. I have a difficult and fraught relationship with a lot of Mariah's iconic most well known psalms I murdered them in my ear drum so much as an adolescent yet they no longer try as I might strikes in court and so that dissonance between what I think of this on intellectually and what I feel is not something I can overcome so for me always be. My baby is not one of my favorites okay anymore. Fine I gravitate toward deeper cuts. I gravitate toward the R&B side of things. I gravitate toward vocal performances. That make me feel something in no particular order off the daydream album. Meltaways is just. R&b Perfection in you live. I mean it's aptly titled You just Melt Away into the song and you just flow. It's like you just that feeling of being in the ocean where the tide is gentle and you just lay on your back and let it flow like. That's what that song feels like. I move to the motion of the ocean. But it's probably her best display of the lower register to Yup. I mentioned outside. That song is incredible and I wanNA Shuttle Butterfly Ano- everybody says it's her best album and it absolutely is but we do not give her enough credit for creating album in the midst of her own personal and professional turmoil where she was married to the head of Sony Music in the process of divorcing him..

"I just don't know I know what a pencil skirt is. Wearing skirts on the third I would love to see Puma. Become a factor intense clothing again on both the women's and men's side and I would like to see go back to Puma if that ever happened. That's not gonna it's not going to happen. I would love to see more adventurous kits from Lacoste which is such a gorgeous classic brand but I think they put out a lot of boring looking kits for boring looking guys and I would like to add. Philo should do better than to just sign every ten foot tall American to look like a sloth in their clothes like that's all I'm going to say on the on the women's side Fella is doing amazing. They've got some huge players. Signed up to them and they're designing nice kids. Some of the men's clothing would actually look good. If like a regular person. Were wearing it like you're doing a poor job in selling your products. I do not get it. It's so it's perplexing Diego at five foot six or is ner at six I would like to see. Prince when Nike did that That line girls skulls and skeletons. I absolutely love that. And even Nike's Prince at the Australian Open. It was very hit and Miss. There was a lot of like it. Looked like a Holstein cow. There was some kind of pockmarks on some of them. But I appreciate the effort. I really do alley at Lea- underscored tennis asks what changed for both of you and what was reaffirmed regarding your thoughts on Monica Seles before and after you did the research for your podcast. It's tough I learned a lot. It was mostly learning experience for me. I knew kind of the basics I knew the milestones of Monaco's career. What changed for me is that I just developed a more rounded and human understanding of Monica but also was able to to acknowledge that I don't know her and we will never ever know these. Famous athletes will never understand. What really makes them tick. We sort of have to acknowledge that even in these autobiographies they're telling you a version of themselves that they want present that self presentation in many ways is self preservation for somebody who has suffered in such a public way. The thing that I learned most was a better appreciation for Monica's second career. That's really all I knew of Monaco. And so my only frame of reference was to hold her results from nineteen ninety-five onward against what I could read on paper prior to that. And obviously they fall short but when you go and you do the research and you see the quality of opponent that she was playing you watch her matches and you see what she was still able to do on court and you see the incredible consistency that she she turned out. Weakened weak out her second career was extraordinary in. Its own right. It's my opinion that it's unfair to her to look at her second career some sort of failure because she did not do what she did before. one more thing that I we touched on the episode. But I WANNA I've been thinking about it more now that we're done with it you know. We talked a lot about kind of giving players break and just trying to understand that they are human and their new at this and they're making mistakes and just trying to like get pie like any. They're just trying to be human and live their lives and this relates to what I said about as a Rinca h-how I was unforgiving and I I didn't really like her earlier in her career and it took just a lot of personal difficulties that she went through for me to turn the corner. And that's so unfair right so doing this. All this episode challenged me to try to give everybody a break. When they're in a place. Where maybe you necessarily don't like their attitude or you find them arrogant or annoying or whatever like just understand that. These people are not evil. They're just kind of flawed like the rest of us with the executive of men being out of pocket because we should always hold them to a higher standard that then society does yeah. That's the one caveat. Yes but my point is like that. Monaco was roasted so badly by the press for things that now feel so minor. Well considered that folks like well. She can't win back to back tournaments like she's winning tournament this week and falling in the first round the next week. Monica made pretty much the quarterfinals of every tournament you played the consistency was so like you said we can be pretty rough on some of these players especially the young male players and Fabio and people like that where the balances is maybe like not extrapolating who they are as people calling out the the offense but not making it like this is who this person is you know this is a good segue into another question and I hope I'm pronouncing this properly sunny for Africa at Africa. Sunny for the question is without getting into too much detail. What do y'all think most of us who don't have a behind the scenes access to tennis would be shocked by specifically stuff that an uncredentialed person wouldn't be privy to and my response question is simply the humanity of tall from the sheer breath of volunteers across all facets of event management that it takes to put on a tennis tournament and interacting with those people from the person who checks you in in the media. Credential office the person who is giving you notes about the matches that day in the press room to the folks who are bringing in food four media who are manning the elevator. There's so many people behind the scenes who make sure everything runs smoothly and then also to that end the humanity of the players like you were talking about. I'll never forget being out on one of the courts when I first saw arena Savchenko a couple year and a half ago I guess in Cincinnati and she was playing Caroline Garcia and Garcia was up in that third set and it was like okay. That looks that looks to be in the bag. And then a little while later. I see her in the in the stairwell that connects the player loans to like the Locker Room area to the media center. There there four floors right and so you going up and down the stairs you walk past players all the time and chosen the very bottom the basement area and she looked completely gutted like well. Why girl just one and then I check. My phone is like well down. She lost his match. And I'm now privy to this intimate moment that it's difficult to to to put a value on like what it means. I felt like it was an invasion. Even though it was a a semi-public place like I wasn't actively trying to intrude on that private moment. But you see it you know. Yeah and so you see all. These would be private moments behind the scenes at at a tennis tournament that you would not see as a fan and it gives you pause and it gives you a moment to appreciate that. There is so much more to the experience for these players than just wins and losses. I would say how mundane the whole experience becomes and how normal it is. I expected when I went into this. The first few times that I would be completely star struck and it'd be really difficult to do and nerve wracking and it's amazing. How quickly you switch into work mode and how the journalists there are just not star struck at all by top players you as you said you see them in the stairwell you see them in private moments vulnerable moments. They feel much more down to Earth when you're there and it does help you do your job but I was surprised at how familiar. The whole thing is expected kind of this day and like a Phalanx of reporters. And it's really a lot a lot more interactive than expected. I'm sure at major tournaments. It's a lot different But in Cincinnati which has a master's tournament there was a lot of collegiality between players and reporters that I didn't actually expect a bit of inside that gives a little bit of perspective to the Ashburton babysitting in Australia. The players dictate the feeling and the tenseness in the yeah almost entirely in their control. When Patrick comes in and she's like hi guys and she's smiling and she's walking up to the to the podium. That is her. Mo like that is Petra. It's a it's a low key casual affair. Let's do this. Let's have a good time. You know when somebody has a bad loss and they come into press it can be like cutting tension with a knife when Venus comes into press. You don't know what you're going to get. It takes a few brave souls to see. What is she going to give us today? I long kind of jokes that I may be the last person to make. Beena slapping press in Charleston. Right Seventeen I think when aster about you. Know if she's always unguarded with Serena around her with social media With some you know putting out there some messy situation and this was the era of. Where are your pants? Yes but you you just you never know what you're GONNA get. This happened in that time with Venus. And the press. Press and so. It's often fraught and so the tenor of those situations are different. The point here is a players dictate. The tenor of those press conferences. A lot and be. You really don't know what they're like until you're in there right so like we. We had a lot of opinions about press conferences and folks still have opinions about press conferences but actual feeling of being in press conferences and experiencing this Potpourri of outcomes and feelings and tensions and reading the room as totally unless you're there micro decisions. Yeah if you're a reporter. The player really does set the tone there like the teacher in the classroom. And so if you get a player who doesn't have a particularly dominant or strong personality. It can be weird or it can be awkward or the conversation is slow to start a couple more tennis related questions before we get into the Mariah and the diva question which is really the highlight of the show. Yeah we're going to leave it to the end so you can skip it. If you're not interested you have the power to change. One thing about Grand Slam tournaments. What would you change? That's from Francis at Francis Month. I have one wouldn't. There's a bunch of stuff I would work on the scheduling which I know has a lot of challenges and a lot of vested interests fighting for scheduling but I would like a little more equity. As far as that is concerned the change of I would make is a total restructuring of the prize money situation and the prize money allocation I would Bernie Sanders the shit out of that. Are you saying you would like a first round loser to win the same as the champion? Bernie centers has three homes. Did you hear I do? Yeah Yeah So. How can you be a democratic socialist and have a camp in Vermont I do not need. I want to be very clear that I don't believe that what I said. But I'm also not a Bernie Bro. I know I know I don't want folks to be thinking that either like that's let's leave that out of this. Even though I brought it I did feel this bike. Fill of filth over now. I mean ideally I would like the people who clean the stadium Petek tickets to make a livable and indeed a competitively wealthy wage. Now I would like to not be rewarded with just tickets to some day. That you're not voluntary. I would like people were in qualifying to make more money. I would like first to fourth rung players to make more money that the champion makes four million dollars is entirely to. Twu Too much when folks are O'hare struggling like this like non necessarily so because a lot of it is just show building. Could've because so they can say this is the biggest check in the history of grant sometimes and you know. It's just sort of ridiculous. It's a perpetual cycle of whipping your Dakota measuring. That's what their children listening. And if they are. This is an important lesson to learn because a this kind of greed at the top greedy tops. We need to feed the bottoms better. How I am dumbfounded. Can we move on to the next question please? Yes how important do you think tennis? Twitter is to the success of the sport if suddenly this website shut down with the phantom thrive in instagram or forums or fan podcasts. This is from at the swing volley. I like this question. It made me think a lot. I believe that we probably overestimate the influence of tennis twitter. Because we're part of it and I think that's true for politics and entertainment and even like the Oscars right. Twitter feels like the center of the universe. When you're on it but a lot of regular folks I just do not know the conversations that are happening on twitter and for a lot of times fans. They probably have never used. The APP are not interested. Do not know all the warring phantoms and all that is Karen. Who's wearing her? Three hundred dollars. Kip that she just bought to the tennis tournament sitting in the corporate box. Is She on twitter too? She know the conversations we're having. She taught us and care there. Many Karen's own. The grievances cares so yes. I agree with you. I think that the importance that we feel as being part of Tennis. Twitter is overstated. That said we would not be here where we are as a podcast without tennis twitter right right so it has its utility and we have made as much of it as we can but in the grand scheme of things to the survival of the sport tennis would be like. You have acute run. Oh yeah like the sport as a whole I like you said this is an incredible medium and it has the potential of creating a vibrant community which has done it can foster conversations that you do not here on tennis channel. Espn in any of the mainstream publications. We see that every day we also see that we have been driving some of the conversations not we as an AAs personally but increasingly some of the things that we've been railing against on tennis. Twitter have made it to the public realm right then that to doesn't have much utility but no but you also see mainstream..

"At racket for now has been writing a newsletter for Racket magazine which has been entertaining and Laura Wagner. I think is somebody like ice volved on? I grew up really really like her writing as about to say because there were. That's not my recollection of your rice and Joe that you know there's like there's like the deadspin snark that. I think if you're not used to it you have to get over it or move on. It just might not be for you. I also want to say here. Shuttle according to win and her champions corner pieces and podcasts. These are ones that actually do listen to because I appreciate how difficult it is to ask folks interesting questions after they've just won something right and also how difficult it is to ask folks new questions in a way. That's fresh and interesting to them and I think that's something that does really well L let me tell you. It is not always easy to get interesting answers from professional tennis players. No matter how hard you try so if you hear a very engaging interview assume that that interview has prepared an has done a pretty good job. Let's get a few questions in here. That won't take as long to answer. What are Your Bucket List tournaments and why this comes from? Stephan the US. I have a lot because we haven't really been to that. Many tournaments so Australian Open and Wimbledon are are my dream tournaments those grand slams that I want to get to asap. I would love to do like grass court tour so we're going to Berlin this year but I would really like to do the Germany Netherlands. England grass-court swing. That happens very quickly at the end of June near so full of Shit. What you don't want to be in those places and been doing tennis you will be like. I'm going to be doing all other manner of things going on at that point. We're talking about tournaments. WanNa go to. I want to go to more grass court tournaments. I think we need to accept for ourselves that we are not necessarily the best tennis fans but we thought that Rome was going to be a bucket list and I for sure would have enjoyed it more if you were not there personally. That's fine because you kind of ruined it. Oh my God do you know what ruined it One of our days getting completely rained out from morning until night. Listen I would say that pretty much ruined his. There was literally no tennis on one day. You're trying it because the other day. The reason why that was ruined cannot be spoken on these airwaves so through but the schedule was actually kind of Shitty Day. Anyway no but I would have liked to have enjoyed more than just one set of curious in my to have to split up then just for the test to be clear for me. I want to do Wimbledon and test cricket at Lord's in the same summer. That's my dream sporting excursion. Okay and so if I do make it to Wimbledon. I need to be taking in some test crooked as well. The ever dependable doctor sholls with his foot. Mikhail which brings us to perhaps the most difficult. Fm K. in his and our history it's called FM K. drama kings and the three candidates are curious Stefanos. Ditsy bus and Alexander's. I can't even believe this is where we are this decision. There are no good options really. I think we have to contact Canada Post and rescind Scholla's postcards that we said okay so let me go i. I've I've thought about this and I'm confident I'm GonNa Kill Zverev because quite frankly I'm not attracted to him. I don't really like him that much and I don't find him all that interesting. I would marry Stephanos because he seems like a nice enough guy. He does seem like he likes a lot of alone time. Which is ideal for me and I WOULD. F- curious just because I don't want to go into too much detail about actually. I'm not actually into him at all but there is a there is like an energy there. You know what I mean. There's unquantifiable unqualified Sekwa. That I do not see that you do apparent. Oh okay but I mean of the three. We've only been given these three options. Well mine's different. I certainly don't want to marry him. I would marry Stephanie to pass. Because at this point I have wunderlist and I feel that with his aspirations as a vlogger a cinematographer and seeing the World Golf Cart driver. Stephanos can take me places. He can go video things and I can go enjoy myself. I'll see the world with Stephanos. He will do that. I will. F Alexander's serve because again with these scenarios. It's not like a repeated effing. It's like I assume it's a one time thing I could do worse. Okay he we could both just cut her losses. When it's done move on break and I would kill curious because there's just too much uncertainty with what I would be expecting from him on a minute to minute faces and so you need some more shirty do and so. I'd just be done with that. I would be eager to hear everyone. Else's please spam us with your selections. This feel like everybody is going to be out here. Marrying Stephanos Party does have some anger problems. Don't they all indeed? Okay this question's for Jonathan. Why are you so bossy and domineering to James? I want to know and who is asking. It was submitted anonymously or sure. Yes wow I can't believe you know the fans are released sticking up for me these days. I feel so supported and loved. Okay no I do have a question no but I would like to answer that and I would like to answer that you would like to stand and face your accuser. I'd like to let my accusers north to Yup. Because Their Legion at this point that James is a little bit haphazard unfocused and somebody has to whip him into shape on occasion. I love this is victim blaming and a bit inaccurate because I had to remove some factually incorrect statements that you made on the last episode that will never see the light of day and if you were to reflect upon your self as you've directed us all to do on the show today the ratio of your errors to mind. What would that look like in the history of this show? Do you realize you're not really helping your case right now. I by going on the attack. I realized that I'm in a lose lose situation and that if the net effect is a banter that still enjoyable to folks I will take that loss. How selfless wile. I am the asshole. Apparently I'm just going to have to own it. I was going to be nice to you but then you did this. Yup sounds sounds like a law of abusive language. There the actual question that I was going to ask is from Fabien. What we expect from clijsters return and because this is really the only time sensitive and topical question. I think we're going to to answer on this episode. We watched that match. You were editing. The last episode. While that much was going on Kim Clijsters Face Gardenia mood with a in the first round of the Dubai Tournament. Mugabe eventually winning six two seven. Six Moore was up six to double breakthrough love before clijsters forced a second-set tie-break Moore also served for the match at five four in the second set. That's when I went to show her to go to work. The night came back downstairs getting ready to go up the door and we were in the middle of a tiebreak and I turn to you and said what the fuck is going on right. The first from Kim was was a welcome sight. People were remarking how cleanly she was hitting the ball. How she she really looked like herself. Obviously she's not as quick. She's not a sharp. She's rusty but there were a lot of cloisters `ISMs that you see on court. Those lunging forehands the sort of semi splits the worry for Kim coming back at such a big tournament and obviously having to play somebody really good right off the bat and she got one of the hottest players on Tour de open finalist resurgent mcgary though who is playing deep into every tournament in Twenty Twenty. The risk was that shoot embarrass herself. And what would that mean for her comeback going forward and it was the complete opposite and that despite the loss is a massive win because she went down big and fought her way back. Not because Moog Ruth was making terrible errors or playing badly but because Kim phoned extra gears she was able to have her game. Click and find semblances of her former glory. We saw that still plays well in today's game. You know what to expect for her comeback going forward. It'll take uninterrupted play. It'll take being injury free. It'll take improve fitness. Yes she is slower than she was before but her grown game is still there and she can. She can improve with her her finance inner movement. That's something that she has absolute control over Ryan and dare. I say her footwork for her first tournament back was pretty damn good right she. This is a great scenario for her. Playing the runner up at the Australian Open Garcia is at a much higher level than she was last year. I think if Kim had met Gardini last year Kim would have won this match going forward like you said. Injuries are always going to be a concern at her age even if she supremely fit and training in a smart way and playing a smart schedule. You never know you really never know what can happen over. The course of the season due. I think she can win a tournament. Yeah I think she can have a good runner to at a major definitely because Kim is one of the great talents of the past twenty years bar. None like there are so few players who have natural gifts like she does. I'm just excited to watch it. Unfold and I think what Kim has that a lot of the WTI top twenty doesn't is. She knows how to win. I think she plays a game that a lot of the younger players have imitated and she is still the best at it are night one twelve aroon asks. What would you like to see in the future as far as clothing kits? What I'd like to see in kids going forward shorter shorts and more fitted kits on the men's side on the men's side on the menu. I do not have opinions as to what I want to see on the women's side. I am not one of those gates. I've said that before I'm not out here. Critiquing runways and red carpet so right. It's not my thing nor do I think it's my place. Okay frankly but you can offer an opinion without objectify buying women. You can be interested in fashion design yet. But I also don't know like what different cuts are number right fair enough peck..

"And that's I think what the question is really getting at this corporate. Speak this nothing. Speak that we got it presented to viewpoints Novak said. I don't agree with her. And that was. That was the firmest thing we got. Roger kind of took you through the pros and cons. Both they were just all very weird when it has never been easier to talk shit about Margaret Court or in a more serious way. It's never been easier to show your support for LGBTQ PEOPLE. It's one of those kind of cheap political winds. I mean even Republicans. Kind of like us now. I don't think it's GonNa Change. It's not going to change with this generation it's GonNa take the younger guys like maybe the CFO's the OC l. e. seems again. I'm looking at black and Brown people here again as much as I said that we don't we shouldn't rely on them but when that crop of players get to the top of the sport. That's when I think we can expect a different way of doing business right and I mean not be cynical here but if political activism remains able to be leveraged toward Prophet. You will see Nike signed. Colin Kaepernick you will see sort of political language being used in corporate advertising but like politics counterculture activism will always be subsumed by capitalism if there is revenue to be found. And you might see that until you might in Tennessee. These young guys be supported by their sponsors. Because it is cool or it has cachet that is the case now If it continues you know what direction these folks just do not have the will to do it. Yes current crop. That's where it is and they probably feel that that's not really their market anyway. They're making Boo Koo Bucks not doing it. Their aesthetic is more. It's more philanthropy rather than activism. Outright is in my turn to pick a question sure this is from Anna. The artist formerly known as Anna Marseille. Is there anything in tennis? You've completely changed your opinion about like a thing incident rule person etc that. You've you in a very different light now. Compared to five to ten years ago this is hard. But I'll get I'll give you one. It's hard for you because your opinions are generally intractable. Oh that's funny. That's Hilarious Ranko. When she was a top player I did not like her one bit. I was a detractor. This was before we had a podcast. This is like two thousand ten two thousand eleven when she first asserted herself men. I did not like I didn't like the noise. I didn't like the bathroom breaks the noise. The noise you know what I'm talking about the grunt yes. I'm talking in past tense here. Okay okay now. I'm a huge fan. I root for her all the time and I think what it was. It was the twenty thirteen. Us Open final is when I finally gained true respect for her and this may be Masta but her trials and tribulations are what really made me turn the corner on her and it makes me feel terrible because someone shouldn't have to suffer for you to feel empathy for them. That is really messed up. But it's true. I challenge you to search within yourself and it happens more than we'd like to admit it's a I mean it is a Classic Sports Story Coaching. I was adamantly against it when this whole thing came about now I do not care. I don't care you are not on the same wavelength pretty steady. But now it's just like there's so many other things to be more worked up about for me like I just don't have the bandwidth to be annoyed in any regard about on court. Coaching or coaching from the stands that's now implemented especially after we went through the. Us Open twenty eighteen but as far as players go I really disliked Steffi Graf up until her retirement because at the onset of my tennis fan. I wasn't a wrench offend and I lived through those ninety four to ninety six seasons and they were traumatic. Federer I was not a fan of Federer. No you're like acted that stating it mildly. And that went on for a long time like he with Biko prior to US having this podcast I way back in the day back my Grad school days I remember making Microsoft paint diagrams. One of them was federer. Sucks in all kinds of a rainbow colors and sending it to my friend who is a huge federal fatten and this of course stemmed from me being an adult phone at the time and Fidel was at its peak poison. Really right like no. We can look for and appreciate them playing against each other again. And there's a nostalgic element a nonthreatening element as far as the phantoms are concerned but when it was happening in real time when. Federer's status as unquestioned goat was being woodpecker that it was fraught for a lot of went. Federal would lose. It was so joyous for me. I've put that kind of thing. Well well behind this point and I won't go as far as to say a huge fan of fitter but I enjoy Federer and watching federal employee and I can appreciate fighter. There's lots of both federal that I can still do. Think and talk critically about and we have on this podcast. But it's it's not what it was. Prior and another person would be Martina Hingis. Hated Martina Angus. I mean she did not make it easy. No I don't know if it was a lack of formal education or if it was just brashness though the rudeness so we have veered into another question which was a follow up by Damian. Turbine lower to. It was a follow up to Anna's question but we have been focusing on a player that we used to hate and now love and hate is a strong word. I would say dislike but Adams question was also addressing Incidents rules things events nouns that are not people basically. So what you're saying is bizzare. This two pronged questions will be mangled the snow while we've mostly focused on people. Are there any inanimate things that you've changed your opinion on? Well I talked about encore. You haven't I know one thing that I really began to sour on was the Endless v sets in grand slams outside of the US Open. I did feel it was a purity thing when I was a younger fan. I loved that Wimbledon could theoretically go on forever and ever and ever is ner mode totally smashed that I am all about the tiebreaks now in the Year of our Lord Twenty Twenty. There's just no reason that one match has to go on for eleven hours you're sounding positively Rothenberg in right now. No I still like five. Cents is still like five-set matches but one of the cool things about tennis. I WILL ADMIT. Is THAT IN THEORY. A match can go on in. Perpetuity. Even tie-break can go on forever and ever never into eternity. There's something poetic about that. But I like the eternity to have more of a likelihood to end. Do you know what I mean. Especially since you've seen the good place finale. Oh let's not even talk about that. I have another one and it's more about stuff that we have said on the podcast. I feel that we have been way too hard on. Chrissie evert in the past earlier. In the show we were talking about commentators. We did an entire episode about you know favorite and least favorite commentators. I don't think we roasted her a bit. And it wasn't always entirely deserved. Her STATURE SPEAKS FOR ITSELF. She of course like she's not. Darren K hailed as an analyst. I mean who is right? She's not maybe Lindsay Davenport. Who seems to have this natural gift for commentary? But she's fucking Chris Effort. Okay more specifically. I think we were a little bit too strident in how we spoke about and rebuked a lot of these tennis commentators the name of the episode to begin with was called the tennis Comey Manifesto as if we had all the answers well. He was tongue-in-cheek short. But still to this day I have not gone back and listen to it because I don't even WanNa know what are the things that we said and this perspective is coming from a place of having done this show no for five years and understanding how difficult it is to not repeat yourself how difficult it is to keep things fresh sounding so that people aren't out there saying? Oh my God they're they're talking about the same again in the same way. It's not easy. It's not easy to talk about the same thing in a different way. That is still interesting to folks right without falling into tropes and narratives and rehashing the same thing over and over again and we have the luxury of edits. Yes the other thing. Is that when we did that? Episode weeded not anticipate the reality that we may some day. Be In the same room as some of these people and perhaps even speak to some of those people which has happened limited. How gives me extreme pause? I was damn near Shitting my pants when I was in Charleston standing with Gordon a couple of years ago and Mary Carillo comes up and I introduced myself and she goes. Oh I know who you are as like or This cannot be good. Look what did I say what did I say I think even like went to twitter and and looked up my handle and Mary. Delete Delete mastered. I say because for as much as I did and do have a lot of respect for America. I'm sure there are stuff I said in. Twenty fifteen twenty sixteen because I could and because. I had no idea that we would still be sitting here doing this. That was not an expectation. That's not what this project was about. I know that as the podcast has gone on that we have gotten a little bit nicer and a little bit more careful. And what's important to me is that we don't trade any of that on the authenticity because we're afraid or because it's uncomfortable so when you do hear us speak up about things it's because we're extremely passionate and really believe it. It's not performance right. And also this coincides with a life change. We're in our mid thirties. We have become nicer people. I think we have a more reasoned worldview as well like we know that the world is not to extremes but issues are not one thing or the other there a lot of reasons that drive folks to do things and be the way they are that we may not necessarily understand. That's just the way it is. You know right so thanks to Anna for. I don't know if you anticipate the question going there. But it did. And there's one other piece from Damian those a follow up about tennis journalists who we like to read and those who don't and to be honest millions. Skip the low that those we don't I would. I don't know I just feel a little mean about that. Sometimes journalists who I love to read Louisa Thomas. I will always come on the show and talk about her glorious pros from back in the day. Sally Jenkins from sports illustrated who I read quite a lot about over these some of these research episodes. We've done obviously you. Frank Deford but current ones. Steve Tickner WHO's written for tennis magazine forever is is just a really skilled writer and a great reporter. I love his work. I will say I not listen to tennis. Podcasts as a rule and there are two reasons one I honestly don't care for the medium that much it's terrible what I know. It's seriously but critical. Like I appreciate it and I think it's wonderful and obviously we benefit from it. But it's not something that I enjoy on a day-to-day basis. It's something that has a very specific purpose for me in my life if we're in a road trip or if I'm in a plane I will listen to podcasts. But it doesn't work for me in other you know. That's just a personal preference doesn't mean I think podcasts are terrible. I clearly don't but you whereas you will listen to podcasts. All the time right. And I I listen to podcasts about all sorts of things. Yes and specifically with tennis podcasts. The main reason I don't listen to them is I don't want to be inadvertently stealing people's thoughts and intellectual property. Because that stuff happens so easily you know. And so that's just an extra safeguard firming that I'm not out here stealing people's thoughts and also keeping or stuff as original as we can because it's not entirely one hundred percent possible right right. Ooh Some other tennis writers. I like Jerry Nathan and Laura Wagner. Both formerly of deadspin..

"But I don't I really don't have any regrets really don't I've I've lived exactly how wanted to. I've tried my hardest every single time win the matches that maybe I should always wind or but I really get a mile so that for me is hello. Everybody welcome back to the body serve. I'm Jonathan and I'm James. This is a standalone. Tbs mailbag episode. I'm excited are you. Oh I love Mellberg episodes people to send US questions and we get to share our opinion about anything and everything freely. This is literally a white man's dream isn't wow whole areas now. I'm going to stop because I've been told it's been brought to my attention that I am a wicked evil oppressive person and so I need to be nicer to you. So are you so what we're going to do is you and I are going to alternate choosing questions that we want to answer. We haven't honestly. We haven't done a lot of over preparing for this. So it's going to be a lot of off the cuff responses. This is an unfiltered look. I don't know I made lots of notes on my agenda. You have not. Maybe you're speaking for yourself. Okay go ahead pick one if the ATP. Wt Tour was to expend extra five tournaments. Which five cities would you like to see host and this comes from? Shane Bullen at Shane Bullen. Okay I I have to think. The cities don't have a tournament or a prominent tournament Rochester New York number. One that there would be a terrible choice but oakwell is so. It is my hometown but Rochester has hosted the Ryder Cup in golf several times. Because there's this amazing country club called Oak Hill. I'm pretty sure that during the PJ championship provincial. Time really as well as women's majors as well okay. So the Rochester is large enough that could easily host that many people coming to a tournament. We could use the excitement. If I'm being totally honest since I've prepared for this question I will tell you that I would like to see a major tournament in South Africa. B At Cape Town or Johannesburg. I'm going with where the black people are. The Black and Brown people are. I'd like tennis to be exposed. To as many people as possible and have it exists. Outside of its current cocoon. Yes I would like to see a big one in Mexico City. I HAVE NEW ORLEANS. I Have Havana and Dublin. Dublin does not fit the criteria of black or brown people. But it's somewhere I'd like to go now. Could American tennis players go to tournament Havana? That is partly on the list. Oh I like that okay okay an ATP tournaments in Havana also Puerto Vallarta Mexico. As well. I say Puerto Vallarta because we've just been there and we loved it so much not so sure that the infrastructure is there for a major tennis tournament right at this point but this aspirational that'd be the perfect vacation. I well do tennis and then stay. Let me tell you. That's when you really find out who the gay players in the core. You might see if you're out and about. I think it would be cool to have a tournament in the Philippines. In Manila a few more tournaments in Southeast Asia I think would be a boon to the calendar. China is well represented now especially in the fall in the WPA Asia swing. But there are a lot of south Asian and Southeast Asian countries. That get passed over Peter at Tiga Eighty four asks. Which ones would you take away? This one so come up with three it would be Madrid Paris Masters and the New York Open. Those are my three. Yes Madrid because if you're a female tennis player why go where you're not wanted? Young Tiriac owns that event. Need we say more so now that we've gotten those two questions out of the way. Perhaps you could prefer one. That could engage you a little bit better with the audience goes on a little bit concerned right now. This question is from skip at Blood Bay mayor. Why do you think tennis players are so politically silent? Compared to athletes in other sports especially the younger crowd. This is a great question that I think has a rather complicated answer and I'm going to attempt to answer parts of it for one thing. Tennis is an individual sport. The players are independent contractors. They especially the top players. Create these little cocoons. These little entourage. That are completely around them. It's so individualistic in. It's about building personal brand and focusing on your own achievement. So much that. I think it's hard to too often create a lot of solidarity among players. I think in team sports. When top athletes go out of their way to be political they often look around and see people who think like them and will stick their neck out for them in case. Shit hits the fan and I think in tennis. It's kind of a self fulfilling prophecy that people don't speak up because they assume others won't back them up and it goes on like that. I also think that this this coon that we've been speaking a lot of this episode. It begins from such a young age. Your ethos as a tennis person as a human is being developed from the age of three four five years old where you see just how much is at stake and how much it costs emotionally physically financially to become a top tennis player that. I can understand why you would try and and block out all that other noise. The counter argument to that is someone like Cocoa Goff who has been refreshingly political as a fifteen year old so it can be done. I think the the template has just been followed so to the T. by so many players for so long that it's it's difficult for folks to venture out of that and to what end. Why would they do that right? Who are the risks worth? What they feel is the payoff or or their moral. Kind of obligation to be political and Serena somebody who became more political only as she got older really as. She entered her thirties when she was much more comfortable as a person outside of tennis and hugely successful. Wealthy I mean Serena was not ever a political kind of impossible being William sister and being apolitical and ignoring all of these things rolling around you but she became so much more confident when speaking about social justice issues. You know this happened. This turned around the same time that beyond started doing it. When black lives matter became extremely active in when kind of social justice activism became more visible and more accepted and so. I think you will see a difference with younger players as the questioner said like younger players seem to be more reticent and I get that because they're young. They're new to the scene there less comfortable but like generation Z. At least in the Western world seems so super politically engaged and have grown up in this tumbler twitter era where they feel emboldened to speak about things where you can say things like a Camila Cabello and then have it come back at you a few years later right. But there's a schism between this North American tennis player that were conceptualizing and so many of the rest of the tennis players from around the world right so this is somewhere. I wanted to go as well. The linguistic diversity. The cultural diversity in tennis coming from all different countries and backgrounds. The fact that a lot of tennis players did not finish high school at least in a traditional setting most did not go to college. There center politically is just so very American players especially American black players for example may have a lot of common causes that they feel passionate about but is there a lot of overlap between maybe a Belorussian white man and a black American woman or a South American woman. Or you know I think outside of the workplace outside of like labor issues. It's hard to find a lot of common causes. I think that's a good segue into Catherine Shaw's question at perspicacious. Sam Are the platitudinous non-voice voices of the Big Three in response to Margaret Court and that controversy the Orwellian ravaging capitalism up close. That was a an academically stated question. Break it down a little a loved it. I had to read it a couple of times. She did actually follow up and clarified. Even though I quite enjoyed the wording of the first week it goes on to say. How much do the big players do that? We can allow them to corporate speak without disparaging them. And how much are they powerless over the system? Okay totally got it for me. This is where it becomes tricky because the Dow Federer Jovovich have enormous control over the system in my mind. We're not talking about them coming together and completely offending the way tennis's run. We're talking about whether or not their voices on social issues would caused them blowback to the point where it would be detrimental to their pocket and careers and for me. The answer is a resounding no I can. We're talking about. Maybe maybe one sponsor would not like something. They can easily recoup that elsewhere. I mean if you're Roger Federer and you have Rolex and Uniqlo and all these deals and you're the richest person who's ever existed in tennis you taking a hard stance gets Margaret Court. It's not going to undo any of that. I think Roger's personality is very very careful. It's basically neutral. It's balanced for better for worse. This is who he is and this is who he's decided to be as brand he's not going to alienate people based on his beliefs. I mean it's not even super clear. What his core beliefs are which is fine like public figures? Don't have to let us in if they don't want to. The contrast is with someone like any Murray who is not at as elevated a place but is an international superstar is wealthy is white is male is A hero in his own country and has not shied away from speaking his mind really at all about issues in Britain about LGBT issues about women's sport etc like that is the the model in in contrast of this just sometimes bland neutrality from the top three but the bland neutrality is the point and the goal. That's what we have to understand. You get the sense that if they're asked these questions the give a response and then their their main concern is like did I handle that. Okay you know you don't want to alienate one person or another. There's this myth of two sides right and you need to land somewhere in the middle. There's no room for nuance in discussing things. And a lot of folks push back and say well. It's not really their responsibility and to them. I would say if not there's than whose because they are the ones with least ramifications that could come their way and as I mentioned in a previous show we cannot always rely on people of color by default and especially women of color to be the ones to be agitating all the time. They are the ones that we should think of as being okay to speak about issues. Because they're minorities there are there's room for allies ship in this scenario and there are ways to be a good ally and one of them is not to send to yourself but to uplift other people who don't have the voice to speak for themselves and on a personal note because we are. I think labeled I've seen a lot of in a lot of places on the Internet as the Gay Tennis. Podcast fine you know. Lgbt issue it's nine queered issues. No quick issues are very important to us and given that they there has never been an openly gay. Atp Player actively under on the tennis circuit. It would be incredible for one of these top. Three guys to be beating that drum to be thinking of the ways in which the tour as it stands could improve itself to make it a more welcoming and logistically friendly livable space for would be out active. Gabler player we asked Federer. What was the reason? He thought that there hasn't been an open the gate. Atp Player to date and his response was. I don't know I don't know why that is. You're right but I have no issue with that. There would be no issue and we set at that is that that was great to hear right. That kind of affirming support from somebody of Federal Toucher is is something that can only do good. But we need to move past that at this point because as much as it's good to have that on record it's also inadvertently dismissive of some of the new show that's needed to be worked on some NASA macro viewpoints. Starting place yeah. There are lots of micro issues that need to be dealt with that somebody like Federer dollar joke which could could work on and it doesn't have to be this issue own. No listening at this is an example economic justice in tennis which is something that I think. Novak is more attuned to not to say that he knows all of the correct ways to go about achieving it but I think he's a bit more actively interested. It's something that's on his radar at least two. Yeah but Catherine's original question was about the courts controversy and the answers that were given at the Australian Open which were disappointing to a lot of us which were insipid generally devoid of meaning. And that's I think what the question is really getting at this corporate. Speak this nothing. Speak that we got it presented to viewpoints Novak.

"More bearable and livable and healthy. This is not just about right but if they do continue to be poor. We need to hold tennis Australia accountable for the health of these player in the absence of some kind of tennis union. Speak of the devil. Which Double Union. Well we talked about it on our last episode and like Clockwork Liam Brady uttered the words. The words that you're not allowed to say pospisil uttered the words as well as Corny retweeted those words in her own words. Nicole Gibbs is re tweeting stuff saying that this kind of air quality. Being respirator can lead to cancer. And she's like what did I just play in yesterday as a cancer survivor right. We saw a lot of folks except for Luke apply seemingly becoming more aware of what the power of union could do for tennis players in a situation like this and then being able to think of what life would be like if they had one and I was particularly pleased to see that Liam broady in his call for a union tethered the WTI with the ATP. Because that's something we've always been wary about because the murmuring about unions have largely come from ATP players and the ATP board with fascistic and whatnot. We've always wanted to know what are what is your thinking with respect to women as well and this this purported union that you're conceptualizing and Liam broady wants you to know that he's bringing the W. T. along in his version of it Brayden Schnur. The Canadian player got in some hot water. Maybe some lukewarm water. Criticizing Rafa and Roger for not being more vocal committing to player welfare and unionization. And here's the thing. Labor organizing is ugly. It's not it's not a pleasant and polite and fun endeavor but these are the sorts of things that are required like feelings are going to be hurt and people are going to be offended. We sit here and we talk about tennis. Having a union and I would concede that that that sounds a bit too hunky Dory for what it would actually entail in practice because there are a lot of barriers right practically. I have no idea what it looks like. What COUNTRY WOULD THE UNION BE INCORPORATED IN? What governmental laws would govern the union bright if players are deemed independent contractors? Are they even legally allowed to organize as a bargaining unit? These are questions that I don't know the answer to but I hope that players have access to labor lawyers to advise the bottom line. Is these players create the product? There are no tournaments without tennis players. So what is it GonNa take? Is it going to take somebody collapsing and having a serious health issue on court in Australia for something to be mobilized hard to say but it's likely that it would take something catastrophic for for change to happen because there's so many interests involved getting back to the tennis? We have made reference to the tournaments that are going on currently again. We don't know what has happened yet in these finals in Adelaide. Hobart Auckland but we have pair number in the final in Auckland. In Hobart Rybkina our number twenty nine seat at the Australian Open will play Jong Schwa- in the final show Schwab is also in the final of doubles along with punctuation and they will play Sonya Mirza in her comeback event. She has made the final in Hobart alongside Kitchen UK Adelaide on the WPA side has been full of intrigue and full of top players. Smarter Halla played. She lost a Sabah. Linka six four six two we mentioned Daniel Collins beat benches and Kenan easily and fairly quick matches your strengths given to coach Saban Lonzo. That was a boom boom big matchup. That was big babe tennis were yes and then the match of Note Ashley Barty Beats Daniel Collins and you may have seen a couple shifts circulating of the handshake. We generally don't like talk about handshakes because we find them to be misogynistic and sexist just say or at least dwelling too much on them yeah and the discussions surrounding them right but this one was not even that great the handshake but there was nothing in the handshake per se. It was his reaction afternoon. That's what made that Jeff Looked at her box. It was a bemused reaction was a drive-by handshake. It was a full clasp. And release happened in like a second but it how it was it was all all you're required to do And then Barton you could if you were to read her expression as like fucking kidding me like what's like did y'all see this and she looks for boxing. She's just kind of Chuckling Theresa. She's kind of like bamboozled. She kind of doctors a little bit right but she was already. I think peeved by some of Collins Antics Collins let out one of those famous commands and Bharti chuckled and looked up kind of like. Oh God it's a you know. Ash Bharti's shade is very very minor if you know her but it took Daniel Collins to bring it out you could ask her any number of questions in a press conference and come at her with different angles to try and get her to say something out of pocket. She's not by no she's she's probably the most professional run of the mill. Toe The line interviewee on the WTO tune. She's not going to be that person and she's not going to tell you if it's not once commits another that's not look at Barbaro and it's not like the thing is it's not because she's boring gets because you get the sense. That ash knows herself. She understands the process and she has made the decision about what she wants to give like what she wants to reveal how she wants to participate and it's conscious but her body language betrayed all that moment it was a little bit wobbled. A little bit shook. It's like the most testy you'll see her which is not very testy but she was asked about a medical timeout. And she said something like you know. I've seen this kind of stuff since the under twelve like. Oh Oh girl you just call this like juniors behavior juvenile stuff. I'm a grown woman. The last bit of News on this episode and it's bad news andy. Murray has withdrawn from the Tweeden's he was scheduled to play in February because he has not recovered from his public issue. Yes it was alarming to me that this was being referred to as a pelvic issue because it sounds very similar to a hip issue but he has clarified that. It is a bone bruise. He is training. He posted some videos of stretching and conditioning and stuff but he has pulled out of his events in February mobilia. Being one of them and I don't recall when I think Rotterdam perhaps. Yeah that's okay. Joe Always Wins Mon Peggy. Anyway we're going to end this episode with some words about the go fund me. We just had an episode and we talked about it but we know that folks kind of dip in and out of listening to the show which is fine. We don't expect everybody.

"Know you see players walking through crowds on on golf carts you know you can get into tournaments frequently with very little security site you know if you go to the right gate sometimes you just. Kinda waltzed through. It's it's amazing to me. Like how flippant all that can be considering what the sport is like. Anyone who's a fan of tennis knows what happened to her. So where are we after after all this research after two hours of talking about Monica? I'm thankful for the trip down memory lane and though the learning that I did about an era of tennis that was deficient for me and be able to to situate Monica's career better and to get a better understanding of just how great and vast her contributions to the sport and not just understand the Monica that I didn't get to watch live but also better understand the Monica that I did. Yep I hope like where. We've come where I've come as like understanding players as more fully rounded human beings which is a like a constant work in progress right Martina Navratilova for example the way she's going on now about Trans Athletes and sport you're tempted to look at her and very one specific way but she is complex. She is full of contradictions. And one more thing to me. The reason the Monica cells was so charismatic in the early nineteen nineties because she had a little bit of edge. There was a little bit of toughness genus. Acqu mystery. There was like the slightest bit of meanness then made her incredibly compelling or a little bit of a a wink yes so remember to make your heroes complicated. Thank you for listening. This has been a month long project and process for us. It's been with us over the holidays. We are relieved to have the recording over to be frank. If you're still here thank you will be our longest episode ever at this point. I don't think there is enough that we could cut in the editing process to stop it from being. I think it's warranted given the top. Stay tuned are genuine debut of season six of the twenty twenty body surf season will begin soon till then. My name is Jonathan. You can find me on twitter at tennis. Underscore John and I'm James at Elliot Jamar on twitter to els to tease. The podcast is at the body serve on twitter on instagram. Fever enjoyed the show.

Today's Today's digital version of keeping up with the Joneses takes a lot of energy is the point here. The question is does this energy expenditure lineup with my larger purposes like training consistently so I can be a strong grandparent. Get a contract extension run my fastest five K. The current narrative is that there are just too many good things on socials to help with all of this but just ten years ago senior citizens were training professional athletes. were getting contact extraction extensions and people were certainly P._r..

We're going to argue here. Limit growth capacity growth good people is a behavior. We're going to review the rule of self-reflection adherence inconsistency as behaviors of growth physiologically. We know that to grow the body needs to pair stimuli with rest and recovery recovery similarly growth as a person requires reflection after an experience Viktor Frankl famously talked about what exists between stimulus and response is our ability to choose how respond unfortunately the training we get on socials depreciate. Perhaps our greatest asset as a species self regulation these technologies specifically reward impulses above intentions if it's true that people.

"Go Hey everybody's Cain here with the body of knowledge and as my co host and good friend and Galvin always says the largest predictor of success is adherence inconsistence and obviously we haven't been that consistent and producing content for or you are listenership so wouldn't surprise Josh Andy or myself if there's three of you left and if there's you three thank you for tuning in to officially marks the beginning of season three. It's also really important to Kinda point out what we're going to be doing moving forward in that is releasing three and then going to a more consistent production of this show in largely. We're going to be talking about is the thing that compels us very significantly and that is the growth growth of people one thing that we say around here. At our Jim changes inevitable. The growth is optional and how we grow matters. There's enough information to help everybody growing very optimized ways as the sort of current Zeitgeist is in the world of fitness performance health and wellness but doing that actually takes a lot of effort the the majority of our conversations are going to be focusing on that now with that in mind that aside. There's a couple of key things that we're going to be doing that. Perhaps are a little bit different than perhaps other shows are just the industry as a whole and that is we're going to be going dark from traditional forms of communicating to our fans followers and friends that is we are going to be <hes> not letting people know via instagram Ram or facebook about <hes> the show and what we're up to. We're not going to be using Youtube <hes> to support it and this is very specific related to the reasons that I'm about to share with you. Andy is currently struggling with this himself and trying to figure out what he's going to do with his social media relationship. I'm eliminating mind for the business of Oak Park and for the business of the body of knowledge with the primary platforms that most people use so instagram facebook twitter and Youtube and this is not a demonstration against all technology in fact. I do believe that technology has a role for all of us to support the growth of humans however these platforms that I mentioned specifically are very antagonistic to the very growth that this show is trying to support for that reason we have to effectively as a small business eliminate the things that don't have integrity ready for what it is. We're trying to do so it. We're starting with the brick and mortar business of Oak Park slash crossroad Los Angeles and we're moving that to the body of knowledge and hopefully this upcoming episode here that you're about to hear will <hes> give some insight to that there'll be a follow up as episode to this going a little bit deeper than we did because we're GonNa hit the four major points that I'm starting this conversation of the social media blackout otherwise known as going.
