"The creature this week is the from Haitian and Dominican folklore, the segue in Haiti. Our type of tiny people like action figure doll sized. And they're looking for love. Sorry, I should be clear. They're looking for people who are in love to murder. The creatures can be male or female. And if a female sagua, chances on a couple saying, quote, loving words to one another, males die. And if a males a guava finds the couple, females die. It's just instant death upon seeing the creature, though, so as far as angering a jealous creature of the week goes, it's not a terrible way to go. That's the one from Haiti. The Dominican ones are all female with a, quote, mane of hair down to her ankles, though her victims are traditionally men, should learn anyone into the forest. Seduce them, and then, yes, kill them. Not sure if she is also very tiny, which brings up more questions, but moving on. You can avoid being eaten by an attractive monster in the forest by not following the attractive monster into the forest. If you're wondering which attractive monsters are okay to follow, well, first, your kind of already asking the wrong question, but this agua's feet are facing the wrong way, which apparently makes her impossible to track. Unless you follow the trail backwards, which is not so much impossible as one extra step you have to do. If for some reason, you want to meet the Dominican sequa, stand by the ocean and call out her name. And you'll be pretty much instantly pulled out to sea and drowned. Because that's what she does. If you'd like to try to catch her, you'd have to track her at night during a full moon with a black and white polydactyly dog, so a dog with an extra toe on its Paul. Just be careful not to look at her in the eye or you'll be bewitched permanently, or here's a fun idea. Don't track a murderous woman in the dark forest at night and put both your life and the life of an innocent 5 toed puppy at risk. That's it for this week. Myths and legends is by Jason and Carissa weiser, our theme songs by broke for free, and the creature of the week music is by Steve combs. There are links even more music in the show notes.

"FM on the Greater East Side. I 976 the $30 car tab measure that 53% of the state supported and approved has been overturned by the state Supreme Court joining me on the line. Is the sponsor of that initiative. Tim Simon. Welcome back to the show. Tempt me on Jason. So first big picture. Obviously you disagree with the decision. The Supreme Court may tell us why Well, I mean, even Judge Ferguson, the King County judge appointed by James Lee said, eventually ruled that the initiative was constitutional that the voters knew what they were voting on knew that the initiative had everything to do with lowering our car tabs in the cost of owning a vehicle. Even the King County judge could figure it out. We have nine Justices Spring court there to the left of a King County appointed King County judge appointed by JN flee It is beyond maddening and and I think you said something right for the most partisan ruling you've ever seen. Can you imagine if this was a liberal initiative? Let's say on gun control, and it had 20 things on it. They wouldn't have a problem. But this initiative just lowering vehicle tabs. They found a way to say that the voters were confused by this one. Nobody was confused at all. Yeah, it seems absolutely ridiculous to claim any sort of confusion, especially when you look at the amount of money that was put into trying to defeat 976 It's a really good point. They have $5 million on the other side to educate voters on all the reasons why they should vote. No. You had the media, much of it on print and TV. They were totally on the other side, trying to convince people to vote No yet. 59% of voters outside of King County voted for nearly 60%. Some counties went as high as 72% of the vote that even non Seattle King County, the area in King County, outside of Seattle, 53% in favor of the initiative. Everyone was for the initiative, but there's no way anybody with a straight face considered, the voters just didn't understand what they were voting on. So let's talk about the reaction from Attorney General Bob Ferguson, who put out a statement congratulating his team for working so hard, But the only reason that you guys lost was because of Tim I'm in. So he's not taking any responsibility. Even though one of the reasons why the Supreme Court ended of overturning the will of the people is, they said that the initiative title was poorly crafted or unconstitutionally crafted who created the title. Yeah. Bob Ferguson, the attorney general. It's his job. His office theirjob is to describe ballot measures. They do that all the time. It just so happens that this particular attorney general, If it's a liberal initiative, he will describe it in flowery terms when it comes to a conservative initiative. It is the most partisan office I've ever seen. Even under Gregoire. They would play it straight under Fergus and anything he could do to undermine an initiative. He will do it if it's conservative. But what was even worse is that after the initiative passed, Senator Stevo Ban sent him a letter saying you need to recuse the name outside counsel because your office is defending that sound transit tax In a different case, you're clearly conflicted. Also trying to take me out of politics. You need to recuse yourself. He refused to do it. We said before we had this judge, we said before we get our judge in there, you should move it out of King County. You refused to do that. We said you should affidavit, this judge of the JMC point, refused to do it when he lost in the injunction. We said before you appeal it, you need to do a motion for reconsideration. He refused to do it. He's been sabotaging this initiative since day one. Of the case. He could have stepped aside. He didn't It was so that he could undermine it from the inside. Yeah was remarkable just to make your point. Ah, little bit more clear. Is that or it was using on actual quote because you point out that in this case, he the way he talks about 976 is just all negative. It's all about you and how wrong you've been. But when 16 39 was challenged by pro gun groups, and this, of course, was the virulently anti gun initiative that was passed by the people, he put out a statement after the lawsuit, the NRA continues to challenge voter approved common sense gun reforms and they continue to lose. I will not allow the NRA toe undermined the will of the voters. This does just that which is undermined the will of the voters and by the way, 16 39 very clearly had more than one subject. A part of that initiative and very clearly did not even include the full text of the initiative when they were going through the petition process. The state Supreme Court refused to toss that Absolutely. There is no doubt that Bob Ferguson has to set the rules. If it's a conservative initiative will Children one way and do everything you can to undermine it. When it's a little initiative, he'll pull out all the stops. And he frankly, sounds like Jay Inslee, blaming everything on Trump is that somehow he's helpless. Innocent bystander. It's his job to describe ballot measures. That's their job to do that. He just so happens. I do everything you can to undermine any conservative initiative. But when it's a liberal initiative, I mean, it's it's apple pie. And the descriptions are absolutely flowery and what I'm struck by and I got to throw this out. Is that We spent 666 $132,581 paying his team toe lose, he gets paid 100 67,000 year Noah Purcell get 157,000 Alen Topsy, the most incompetent member of the Attorney general's office that they assigned to the case That didn't even know what section 12 of the initiative did. Update 131,000. We were sabotaged by people that we're getting paid by taxpayers. And if he had just done what super band open to recuse himself, we actually could have gotten a law firm in there that could have at least aggressively defended it, and it would at least know what the initiative did. They wouldn't be undermining it every step of the way. Tim I'm and joining me on the line after a ridiculous ruling by the state Supreme Court throwing out $30 card to have fee. So what's next? Obviously, you say you're still wanting to fight this. The question that I think is a valid one is can someone else do this? That maybe won't get the same kind of response from the left and pushing back against it. Well, I think the first thing we all need to do is realize that man last October when I said I'm not renewing my car tabs. This is a peaceful political protest. Do not renew your car tabs I have for the last year I've been driving around with expired tabs. I've been pulled over twice both times with with law enforcement officer. I said you You know, I wanna pay 30. Just not a penny more. Please use your discretion and give me a warning today. I've gotten two warnings. Same thing with my son. Same thing happened to him. He let the law enforcement officer No. It was a peaceful political protest, Got two warnings. Dave McMullen ahead of the Pierce County. Republican Party did the same thing. That's something you could do personally, If you're angry, you're frustrated..

You will not be getting your $30 car tabs. The state Supreme Court has just ruled I 9 76 unconstitutional. Khyber radios. Hannah Scott joins us now with details on this breaking news. That's right horseplay in just the last half hour, so the state Supreme Court struck down I 9 76. That's the latest $30 car to have initiative from Tim Simon. High court ruling that the initiative violated the state constitution by log rolling or violating that single subject rule by including a requirement for sound transit to defeat is its bonds also related to the vehicle, repealing the vehicle taxes and fees so that would violate the single subject roll. It also found that it was unconstitutional because the ballot title was inaccurate and therefore misleading to voters. Bottom line. Here is whatever you have been paying for car tabs. It's what you're going to keep paying. And again. This is the state Supreme Court. So this is a CZ faras. It could go. It's not goingto if It were to come up again. It would basically Tim I'm in or whoever else decides to do. It has to start all over again, right? That's absolutely right. And this was a almost near unanimous opinion. One of the justices dissented specifically on the single subject rule didn't agree with what the others had said. But bottom line is that this is this is the ruling and this is what's going to stand. Thank you, Hannah. So, G. I know that you said you are really fired up. I will admit that I actually voted against $30 car taps. So before you start sending me nasty grams, though, people Because it has been approved by voters. I think this is outrageous.

"Today? It gives me great honor, And by the way, we're all truly blessed at the same time to have a leader like President Trump, who was a builder. And that's what my grandfather dedicated to this country to build to grow to prosper. And so we have an incredible builder and we pray we pray for our leadership from president and we pray for our country that we will continue to prosper. I've had to grow. Okay. Well, he said that And then now they're supposed to be a boycott. And I don't know if among the Yeah, but this is this is not one led by guilty. What's this was people that they feel a lot of people. A lot of Hispanics think that Donald Trump has sort of, you know, vilify them throughout his entire President scene Because of that they were irritated with this guy who's created creates the guess is the largest producer of Hispanic related that kinds of films and food, and they they were bothered by it, so they they're the ones leading the boy that he cave. Has He caved and apologize. I don't think I'll Yeah. You hold the line, all right, fearing for a ballot topped by Trump and I'm in some GOP leaders back little known Roll Garcia in a crowded Washington gubernatorial primary. Now, I'm sure Tom and Curly people are all over Ralph Garcia. But other people don't know who he is. Johnny won't explain who he is No story because I told you I care about as much about the governor's race as the Mariners season. Because their perpetual losers because it's way we're wasting our breath and possibly spreading on covert 19. I think it's a big favor complete, Tom, you stand on top of the space needle and you spin around is the space single spins around you spin around. You have to get every single house. You've got to get every vote of every single house. You can see that you can't you don't you can't win. It doesn't matter what happens. You go over the eastern Washington. The signs are everywhere. All the horrible things that people using the F word to describe insulin. Everybody else. That's the entire east side of the state. You come over here and King County carries and and he just stays in there. He doesn't want the job. He told us he didn't want the job didn't want to be the governor. But he's just taking the job in keeping the job for now, and he's got a nice warm seat to sit in on who we throw up there against it doesn't matter. One like well, and that may be ticketed of why you have even one of even feel fortunate. A one of the candidates Admits that he thinks it's a clown show the people that her up and running, so I think it's interesting sentences. They gave us the front page of the Sunday. You know, paper. I mean, this is like a big a story about a relatively, you know, little known guy. He's the Yakama doctor, but he does hit some boxes, which is he's been working on. I don't know if it's the front lines, but he's been working in Yakima, which has been like the hottest spot in the state. For 19 So he's certainly pertinent to what's going on here. Also, he's a pro choice Republican. If you want to get some of those voters that you can see from the top of the space needle, you need to be a little more moderate than everybody else. That's running. I agree. I don't think he has a prayer right now. They say the state GOP and this. I think you gonna speak to you since you're so tight with the State Party.

"Listening to all of it on WNYC. You know, what are the challenges of this job and for journalists pronouncing, the names of the guest properly and this year's presidential candidates? Are presenting a real challenge for a lot of journalists there south bend mayor Pete Buddha? Judge and Senator Kamala Harris, former congressman Beto O'Rourke Roxy. But you know, someone who's running for president who has a pretty simple matter pronounce Jona, Ryan sure, he's been described as a waste of carbon an unstable piece of human scaffolding and a lot of other things you can't say on the radio, but that isn't stopping Jona Ryan who you may have seen on HBO political comedy series veep. Here's Jona announcing. I wasn't very popular in our nation's capital. The Washington insiders. They didn't like me very much. Yeah. You could even go so far as to say that they hated my guts. But guess what? I like them either. So let's send them a message. Let's send them a message by shoving the guy that they hate the most right back in their faces. I am announcing my exploratory committee for the presidency of the United States, which means that I am basically definitely running. God bless New Hampshire. God bless the United States of America and Puerto Rico if they can vote for president and God bless Jona. Ryan. Thank you. Fever turns where the seventh and final season on March thirty first joining me now is Tim Simon's who plays played Joan Ryan to the annoying hilt for all seven seas. It's so nice to meet you nice to meet you too. So when you first read the part of Joanna, how was it described? How was he described? Actually, he was described as a short fat bearded guy, and you are a long tall drink of water. Yes. I yeah. I went in against type. And so I think when I went in for this job as well. There's no way I'm going to get this one. I was just as excited that it was the first time I've been called in for like a like a series regular part for this when casting office for Allison Jones, who's an amazing casting director. And she does a lot of really amazing work. And I was like, oh, this is great. I'll be able to get cast on other shows in the future. But like this is just a failing at this one. We'll just be a first step. That's so interesting that you this my second question. What does that said? Did you physically fit the description? Yes. That's so interesting that it was a completely different body type. Yeah. One thing that Alison as a casting director does really well. Always listens, of course to everything that the director wants. But then also make sure that she presents other reads that they might not be thinking about that. She might also seem the she thinks might also work. And and and I think if it wasn't. And it wasn't for that. And if it wasn't for our Mando who was who created the show who is just a person who is completely willing to scrap their own initial idea and go with something else, if if they like it he was never super locked into it, just like, oh, well, you know, we wrote it for a short short fat bearded guy. He was willing to scrap that and and cast me in it. So yeah, there were like a bunch of things that had to line up for me to actually get this job. So for folks who haven't seen this Jona is completely grading. He's he's all the D words can't say on public radio. I walked around upstairs to executive saying what word can I say. And then we can say jackass. Yeah. There is a jacket. Yeah. What is his self image though? Oh, this is something that I like sorta from day one was something that I was really into like his he has a fantastic self image. Of course, we all have days, and I think he still has days to where where like the the walls crumble a little bit. But like when he wakes up in the morning. Yeah. When he wakes up in the morning, if you've seen the show, he thinks he's like Danny thinks he's very attractive, and charming, and sort of smooth talking just wonderful guy who who has ambition and people are sort of naturally drawn to and he has none of those things he is charm. Listen, he's graceless, and he's ganglion and nothing has works and everything I if he tries to hit on women, it always comes out, just terribly and. But his self image is great. Yeah. He has a very healthy self image for Jonas arc in the story. Tell people how where he started and how he wound up thinking he could run for president. Oh, he starts as the liaison between the White House and the vice president's office. She likes to remind people. He likes to remind people that he works in the White House, and it starts there. This tea like his thing is that he's always been most attracted to proximity to power either being powerful himself or or his proximity to power. That's the only thing. Those are the only things that matter damn we starts there. And in his mind when he delivers a message to the vice president and her team he is delivering that message. And because he is he has the weight and power of the presidency of the United States behind him and so already like in early seasons. He has those sort of delusions and after that. He can. And this may sound familiar. He continues to fail upward into positions of power that other people, but grudgingly have to accept and and a lot of times when when he started running for congress. In the show when he started running for congress. I thought a lot of I looked into Ted Cruz quite a bit. I feel like there's a lot of overlap with Ted Cruz, and that this is a person that no one likes that. I wasn't McConnell that made the joke that if you shot Ted Cruz on the Senate floor, you wouldn't be able to find a witness that is Joe like they harmless and graceless and nobody likes them, and they're not really good at their jobs, but they have fallen backwards into this power that other people have to be like well until they're run out of town on a rail. There's nothing we can do but accept it. And then he fails at being congressman gets kicked off the ticket and somebody decides somebody decides to prop him up for the for the presidency and also in there he starts a series called Ryan on the west, right? And it's interesting one of the things interesting about watching him, Johnny go Tim Simon's, by the way, he plays generation in veep is how he physically changes because when he's in Ryan tala, he's got a hoodie. Uh-huh. Got sort of the Silicon Valley haircut. And now that he's running for president. We see him in suspenders a little round glasses. Tell me a little bit about the choices that you guys make about what Joan looks like at the moment. I think Johnny is somebody that has no integrity and has backbone. So he will go with like when he. When he like that's a little bit more of his natural. Look when he's when he was running Ryan, which in the story. It was supposed to be Ryan networks, but somebody bought the wrong domain in. I don't know if that ever made it into the show. So it's called riot. But like somebody's like I bought Ryan addicts or something like that. And then when he becomes a congressman he does like the tie, and like the sort of superman haircut and the and the glasses even though because they just use like, they make you look smarter. So you gotta wear them. And then he switches to bow ties because shawny tells them you gotta switch to bow ties. It makes you look like a man of the people like a guy that just owns a farm, but also has to go into town. And he's like great. I don't care and when and this this season, he has I think we were going for like an RFK sort of rolled up sleeves going to get to work man of the people thing again with the glasses that he doesn't need that just make they all think well, you need to look smarter. So put these on he's who he has no integrity, and all these choices are just made to pander to voters to make them believe he is something that he isn't this just in. It was Lindsey Graham who said it, and here's the exact if you kill Ted Cruz on the floor of the Senate and the trial was in the Senate. Nobody would convict you. There you go. That's it. And you know what? Lindsey Graham, that's a guy with conviction. I think we've seen over the last couple of months that is a guy who stands by what he believes. Lindsey Graham, you know, what let's just say American hero, Lindsey Graham. I'm so glad we're talking about him. It's amazing. How this show is. So on the nose. You're just describing in your physicians come about Lindsey Graham. I wish it wasn't. I wish it wasn't especially this coming season. Like we have to like we have to we can't ignore what's happening in the world. Our job is to try to kneecap it our job is to try to is to satirize it. And and. Whatever. Whatever jokes. We got. Because of whatever whatever has happened over the last couple years. I feel like a lot of comedians. You like this? I'd gladly give them all back. I'd gladly give all the jokes back. But yeah. We have to deal with it. My guest is Tim Simon's. He plays Jonah Ryan on veep, which is returning for seventh and final season this weekend. So Jonas running for president. And as you said, he can't say the right thing. He is married to his stepsister who keeps calling his half sister to creepy effect. Let's take a little bit of a listen to one of Jonas campaign stops into to his stepsister, not half sister. Guys know that I got married who wants to be my brand new smoking. Hot wife. Bet bet come on. My what? Thank you. Look at how hot she is. Thank you so much Joni. He just swept me off my feet. And I know that when he's elected president. He's gonna sweep all the dirt out of Washington. Need to find a tall enough for him? I just wanna make it clear that she does do all the housework. Questions. How tall are you? I'm six foot five, Tom, man. And Secondly, we just before we went on the air two or three people are staff who are remain your main so rarely remain low fest and everyone on the air and Jonas from New Hampshire is do you? Call upon your your history. The way you grew up to infused Joan at all. I I it's a good question. I I think there is a part of people from the northeast that that look I mean, I mean, I'm probably not saying anything they knew that look at the rest of the country..

"Listening to all of it on WNYC. You know, what are the challenges of this job and for journalists pronouncing, the names of the guests properly and this year's presidential candidates? Are presenting a real challenge for a lot of journalists there south bend mayor Buddha? Judge and Senator Kamla Harris, former congressman Beto O'Rourke Roxy. But you know, someone who's running for president who has a pretty simple matter pronounce Jona, Ryan sure, he's been described as a waste of carbon an unstable piece of human scaffolding and a lot of other things you can't say on the radio, but that isn't stopping Jona Ryan who you may have seen on HBO's political comedy series veep. Here's Jona announcing. I wasn't very popular in our nation's capital. Yeah. The Washington insiders they didn't like very much. Yeah. No, you could even go so far as to say that they hated my guts. But guess what? I like them either. So let's send them a message. Let's send them a message by shoving the guy that they hate the most right back in their faces. Downsizing, why exploratory committee for the presidency of the United States, which means that? I am basically definitely running. God bless New Hampshire. God bless the United States of America and Puerto Rico if they can vote for president and God bless Jona. Ryan. Thank you. Fever turns were the seventh and final season on March thirty first joining me now is Tim Simon's who plays played Jona Ryan to the annoying hilt for all seventy this. Nice to meet you nice to meet you. So when you first read the part of Jona, how was it described? How is he described actually OB like he was described as a short fat bearded guy, and you are a long tall drink of water. Yes. I yeah. I I went in against type. And so I think when I went in for this job. There's no way I'm going to get this one. I was just as excited that it was the first time I've been called in for like a like a series regular part is when casting office for Jones, who's an amazing casting director. And she's does a lot of really amazing work. And I was like, oh, this is great. I'll be able to get cast on other shows in the future. But like, you know, this is just a failing at this one. We'll just be a first step. That's so interesting that you do this my second question. What does that said? Did you physically fit the description? Yes. That's so interesting that it was a completely different body type. Yeah. And one thing that Alison as a casting director does really well. Is listens of course to everything that the director wants? But then also make sure that she presents other reads that they might not be thinking about that. She might also seem to the she thinks might also work. And and and I think if it wasn't. And it wasn't for that. And if it wasn't for our Mando who was who created the show who is just a person who is completely willing to scrap their own initial idea and go with something else if they like it. He was never super locked into it. Just like, oh, well, we wrote it for a short short fat bearded guy. He was willing to scrap that and cast me in it. So yeah, there were like a bunch of things that had to line up for me to actually get this job. So for folks who haven't seen this Jona is completely grading. He's he's all the D words. I can't say on public radio. I walked around upstairs to executive saying what word can I say. I can say jackass. Yeah. There you Jona is a jacket. What is his self image though? Oh, this is something that I like sorta from day one with something that I was really into like his he has a fantastic self-image. Like, of course, we all have days, and I think he still has days to where where like the walls crumble a little bit. But like when he wakes up in the morning. Yeah. When he wakes up in the morning, if you've seen the show, he thinks he's like Danny thinks he's a very like attractive, and charming, and sort of smooth talking just wonderful guy who who has ambition and people are sort of naturally drawn to and he has none of those things he has charmless, and he's graceless, and he's ganglion and nothing he's has works and everything I if he tries to hit on women, it always comes out, just terribly and. But his self image is great. Yeah. He has a very healthy self image for Jonas arc in the story. Tell people how where he started and how he wound up thinking he could run for president. He starts as the liaison between the White House and the vice president's office. She likes to remind people to remind people that he works in the White House, and it starts there. This tea like his thing is that he's always been most attracted to proximity to power either being powerful himself or or his proximity to power. That's the only thing. Those are the only things that matter damn as we starts there. And in his mind when he delivers a message to the vice president and her team he is delivering that message. And because he is he has the the weight and power of the presidency of the United States behind him and so already like in early seasons. He has those sort of delusions and after that he can and this may sound familiar. He continues to fail upward into positions of power that the other people, but grudgingly have to accept and and a lot of times. I when when he started running for congress. In the show when he started running for congress. I thought a lot of I looked into Ted Cruz quite a bit. I'd be like there's a lot of overlap with Ted Cruz, and that this is a person that no one likes that. I wasn't at McConnell that made the joke that if you shot Ted Cruz on the Senate floor, you wouldn't be able to find a witness that is Joe like they harmless and graceless and nobody likes them, and they're not really good at their jobs, but they have fallen backwards into this power that other people have to be like well until they're run out of town on a rail. There's nothing we can do but accept it. And then he fails it being congressman gets kicked off the ticket and somebody decides somebody decides to prop him up for the for the presidency and also in there he starts a series called Ryan technology on the west, right? And it's interesting one of the things that's interesting about watching him Johnny go talking to Tim Simon's, by the way, he plays Jenner. Ryan in veep is how he physically changes because when he's in Ryan technology. He's got a hoodie. The Silicon Valley haircut. And now that he's running for president. We see him in suspenders a little round glasses. Tell me a little bit about the choices that you guys make about what jonelle looks like at the moment. I think Joanie is somebody that has no integrity and has backbone. So he will go with like. So when he when he like that's a little bit more of his natural. Look when he's when he was running Ryan, which in the story it was supposed to be Ryan next. But somebody bought the wrong domain in. I don't know if that ever made it into the show. So it's called riot. But like somebody like I bought Ryan addicts or something like that. And then when he becomes a congressman he does like the tie, and like the sort of superman haircut and glasses even though because they just like they make you look smarter. So you gotta wear and then he switches to bow ties because he tells them you gotta switch to bow ties. It makes you look like a man of the people like a guy owns a farm, but also has to go into town. And he's like great. I don't care and when and this this season, he has I think we were going for like an RFK sort of rolled up sleeves going to get to work man of the people thing again with the glasses that he doesn't need that just make they all think well, you need to look smarter.

"A little like a small little miracle yet. It's a little bit. Like, it's Olympic slauson translation in some ways, which is sentence. That means so much to me personally. And I never would have thought that anyone in the world would be like what if the relationship in Las translation, but at the Olympics because the Olympics are dope. And that's what this movie is. And Chris and I walked out and we're just startled by the amount of stuff. They got from the Olympics or the behind in the athletes village there in the cafeteria, we learned a lot about the medical services available at the Olympics and dental services because Nicole does play a dentist, and if you know if you get really geeked out about the Olympics every two years as I do that's very exciting. And in the middle of it is this really lovely relationship, and it's complicated. Moving moving little story. I just got off of a run where I've just been watching so much TV in by for really practical purposes. A lot of television ones of settling in very similar settings. Whether they're shooting Louisiana for New Yorker, Louisiana for northern California, or whatever Berber people shoot or shoot Atlanta for Indiana. And there's a lot of like interior studio set work that gets done every scene in this movie is shot in a place where these people actually live or work and to see a character and. Film walking in the opening ceremony, and, you know, actually, having a motion reaction to being in the opening ceremonies as a different kind of movie. It actually is movie magic in its own purest form, did you say also we should be clear that Alexi Papas is is an actual cheese Olympic competed in brio and two thousand six so she is an Olympian and also makes great movies Olympics. What what sports she participates country running long distance running in the films. Well, no, she's a skier in the film. She plays a skier in the phone because I was the closest thing that they could find in the winter games that kind of matched her draining regimen and everything else. Do they have any regret about not being able to do the summer games? I mean, they think that they they wound up being like it. We regret it because it was very cold. And like our cameras frozen those hard to stand outside for sometimes. But I personally think that the winter games are incredibly visually arresting because you've got like slopes, and it's and people are wearing jackets and all bundled up. And it's like the the cold add something to the to the movie. Okay. Interesting olympic. Teams. That sounds good. Yeah. Coming out as a I think they're getting distribution or hoping to get distrbution now, and you can hear an interview I did with Nick and Alexia Jeremy on the watch going up. I didn't mind. Okay. Amanda, did you discover anything this week? I don't know if I did the discovering, but this is a slight this isn't one of the headliners. It's a film called. Yes. God guess directed and written by Karen Mayne, who I believe she she wrote her has a story credit on obvious child. And it's a movie about a young girl in the mid west played by Natalia Dyer who you may know from stranger things do and she goes to a Catholic school. So you've in the early two thousand so there are some lady bird vibes here. But in the the best of ways, and she log on to AOL one day and winds up in sexting with a stranger because she doesn't or guess cyber sexting in in two thousand and what have you on? AOL with someone that she doesn't know because she does not know enough about sex or less, you know, or anything about human needs because her Catholic school has taught her to fear sex, and it is kinda spin balls from their her own sexual discovery. And it's mostly about masturbation, but in like, a really nice way, it's not a gross out comedy. It's like, it's a it's a sweet story about finding out that sex is not bad while also thinking that you're going to help because you go to Catholic school. She know that Tim Simon's of veep is plays the priest and teacher who teaches the whole class that Sex's terrible. And that's he he has fun with that. It's fun. It's a
