"tina brown" Discussed on The Book Review

"That was more or less a biography. What is the structure of this one? What's she trying to do in it? This one is an account of how the monarchy has both lost its grip in a way and also re gripped, I guess you could say, it's about how the monarchy has reshaped itself for the 21st century. Fans of The Crown will remember when Princess Margaret was not allowed to marry captain Townsend. And it shows how far the monarchy has come in terms of permitting modern configurations and reconfigurations, which it's really had to do to adapt and to survive. So it's a sprawling book. And because it's Tina Brown, there's a lot because of who she is, which is an editor of many publications that have covered the royals as well as being a person who has personal interest in the royals, there's a lot of personal accounts of her time covering them and thinking about them, which is enjoyable. There are a lot of gossip. There is a lot of gossip Jon. But are there things you don't know how close a royal watcher you are? I am. I'm not really, I love The Crown and I love reading about the monarchy during World War II and after World War II and I'm much more familiar with that period. I'm not a modern royal fanatic. But this book does a very nice job of linking the two periods and showing the continuity between things that Princess Margaret suffered and now that prince Harry is suffering. You're not going to try to convince me that you didn't watch Harry and Meghan's interview with Oprah, are you? I actually only watched that interview after I read this book. And Tina Brown does a glorious job of recapping it. I think fans of Meghan Markle may not be so pleased with their treatment. Interestingly, she compares Kate Middleton to a heroin out of Trollope, Anthony Trollope, and Meghan Markle gets the shorter shrimp. She says that Meghan Markle is like something out of the back pages of variety magazine, which I thought was a disk. I thought maybe we could come up with a better literary metaphor for Meghan Markle, but no. We're going to move from the royals to a slightly less elevated figure, but in equally famous one, I think, Molly, we're going to break a soft rule and we're going to talk about a review that's not going to be online until next week. You review John Waters as first novel this week. Tell us a little bit about that. Yes, first of all, how dare you imply that he's not some kind of royalty of John Waters is a filmmaker and an artist and a writer and came up in the 70s with a bunch of trashy wild films like pink flamingos and female trouble and these are films where I can't even I can't even hint at the premise without rendering this podcast on arable, but he then hit mainstream success jackpot with hairspray, which came out in 1988 and became a Broadway musical and won him more a broader kind of fame. Anyway, so in the past decade he's moved away from film and he's been doing more performing and writing and publishing books of essays and liar mouth is his first novel, although it's very much even though it's a new form.

"His novels are often overly long lack craft for not driven in the slightest way by plot really. It's almost as if the volume gets turned up on bellows interior preoccupations and you accompany them for a span of four to six hundred pages and and then the volume goes down I like him at shorter length. Seize the day is a masterpiece of concision and and dramatic focus in a way. I recently discovered a collection of such works at the most random thing in the world. My daughter fifteen year old daughter and i were driving in maine in a little rural community. And there's a white tent with a bunch of books underneath and there's no mistaking it. It's a public library book sale. We go over one hundred percent on the honor system. You leave whatever you please in the little jar. Nobody was there from the library. And you take whatever books you want. And so i was like listen. Let's get the cart. Let's get the horse before the cart here. I put ten bucks in the jar. And i said if we take a book we take a book.

Which i'd never read before and it's him at kind of short longer than short story shorter than novella length. And they're also from a period that i don't think anyone would call his heyday.

That would be Nick Sandman. Is that not a great tweet? Fabulous, Fabulous tweet, by the way, Speaking of tube in the left, is trying to save his gig. They got what's her face? What's her face? Tina Brown out there trying to say Hey, you know what? He didn't mean to do it? He didn't He didn't mean to masturbate. Well, No, he didn't mean to do it in front of people. All it was an accident. The camera was on pointed at the pubic area. Yeah, essentially wasn't actually didn't know he was doing it. He's there's no reason why public masturbation should destroy a 30 year career at a great liberal publication like The New Yorker. They're trying to get the guy reinstated. Okay. Back to the phones. My adopted hometown, Sacramento, California. This is Robbie. Welcome, sir. Great to have you here. Hello. Hi, Rush Limbaugh. Yesterday you had a caller who was asking who the next leader of the Republican Party should be as if Donald Trump has faded into oblivion and, um There was talk about winning more Republican seats in the future. What We're going to play some gigantic game of house. If we step past what has just happened in this presidential election, as if nothing happened. If we do not deal with it, we have stepped from what was America. Into tyranny. What will be left other than one gigantic pretend game of politics. I don't disagree with that. I'm I'm trying to think back. I asked who would be the Republican leader in the future? I asked that question. I asked of who Well, A caller yesterday was asking it was posing that question. There was some discussion on it and you know, and there's been some talk about 2022 2024. But what's the point of what's the point of discussing any future election if we don't feel what has with what's just happened? Oh, I look, um you're preaching to the choir on that my point about this from the very beginning has been the integrity the Constitution. The integrity of our electoral system of the Democrats are the ones that have blown it up. Um, And if if this is not resolved, and it doesn't look like it's gonna be Then how can we assume any election down? The road is legit and fair. I were on the same page here. But that still doesn't mean that it doesn't matter who is going to be the leader of a political movement. You're still gonna have to have that. I know. I guess I'm just wondering what's the point? It looks to me like if we don't deal with what has just happened. We're just going to be playing one gigantic game of pretend Attending our votes means something pretending that we can influence what's going to happen. So what should happen? I mean, there have been serious efforts. Ah, lot of people have worked very hard to try to expose this. And to fix it, and they've bombed out. What? What? What? What do you think should be the next step The next phase. Well, I think Marc Stein, your guest host was saying on Monday. This is the hill to die on. Um and I think we have to stand up against tyranny or we're going to be living with it. We're living with it. Right now, until this is dealt with, and we will be living with it continually until this is dealt with. So I don't I don't have the answers other than just encourage all of the listeners. We have got to stand up against tyranny. This is our generation. This is our moment. I don't disagree with that. And I think you have 74 million people that did. They voted for Trump. They were cheated. They were defrauded. There's no question that That something really out of whack happened in this election. And you know, asking them to, um, uh, to do more than that. It's a hill to die on. I understand that. I understand the sentiment, but where's the hill and let's define dying? Well, maybe maybe more colors can can weigh in on this point. I do want to take issue with the 74 million figure. I keep hearing this 70 million figure than 74 million figure. I think we need to add a plus on the end because I just have great doubts that that is accurate. And that that is high enough. I've heard some people think that Trump maybe even said 80. I'm not. I'm not sure. Ah! I've heard that number bandied about. Um, Yeah. Look, I totally understand the sentiment that you have I I understand the Frustration that you have and to say that this is a hill to die on that if we accept this meaning if we accept Biden's president, Then. We've cooked our own goose and that we're just living in a pretend world to use your term where our votes supposedly matter, but they actually Don't Because we will have been Hoodwinked. And cheated and so forth, and so on short of something that Prevents Biden being elected going.

The Crown season 4

"I am now joined by. Amanda dobbins our resident expert. Amanda thanks for joining me again. My pleasure your pleasure to watch these middle. Three episodes of the crown season four absolutely crushing. It this stuff. Is this really good. We're talking today about favorites fagin and taryn knowle's ands basically. It's the episode with all the kids. The episode with the guy breaks into the palace and the episode. Where charles and diana go to australia. And i have to say that i think four. I've seen a few people dating for here and there for some reason. Maybe because it's too too well kind of put too much of a bow on it. I think it's fucking extraordinary. Like if i i thought that favorites was a really like startling achievement in dramatic writing and just in terms of the amount of stuff that they burn through in the way that they bring all these characters. What did you. What did you think of that episode. I agree with you. And i have not seen any criticisms because i don't really consume social media anymore but anyone who thinks it's too neat or they put a bow on it. I guess find another show This is peter. Marin is a playwright. There is a lot of construction and intentional cinematic and exposition all dialogue and set pieces built into this. It's not. it's not that it's obvious but all of it is very crafted. So i agree with you that i thought episode four was tremendous in terms of the amount of like and setup that they managed to convey to you in a very effective way. Because we don't really know anything about two of the four children barely met any of them and has been kind of a side character and so there are four children who get their own scenes and moments and so you have to develop those characters. You have to develop the queen's relationship to all of them. You also have the margaret thatcher thematic connection of the of the children. And you're drying out a little bit about margaret thatcher's relationship to women as well which is an important larger thematic episode. And also you've got the falklands war. I mean it's and they do it definitely and i thought about something you say a lot. Which is the crown doesn't like doesn't waste a moment. They just pick the scenes they pick the lines. And you know everything you need to know. That is so hard and they nail it. I mean they do a lot of stuff that i think other shows would probably shy away from because it would feel too like they were showing you too many of their cards so i kept thinking about the scene between elizabeth and an you know they go riding out. This is the thing that they sort of both share this love of horses even though and is obviously phillips favorite. And that's like in the way that that gets conveyed in the beginning and their conversations heartbreaking you know like their conversation is legitimately breaking and i think you could look at what an says. She's like. I used to enjoy being the difficult on and scaring people and now i don't feel like have any control over that anymore and you could be like well like you might go your entire life and never have that level of self awareness. You know you may have to go through thirty years of therapy to find that out about yourself and this young woman just like sort of pops out off when confronted by her mother on iran day. But it's beautiful writing. It's just it's just like amazing writing. And i thought the performances specifically in that scene mostly because the three sons come off as absolute troll lords in this episode mean. Yeah but the scene in particular was was quite lovely thought. Listen i think that there are levels of emotional breakthrough and clarity in this. Show that it's never happened in real life and certainly have never happened in the uk and to anyone who is absolutely senior no country just a lot of time talking about salads in england too early because they get a lot of salad industry and how to their salads or just blue cheese and bacon their emotional relationships are blue cheese and bacon. Do they are not. They're not doing the the smart greens. Now i mean it's it's a tv show and we are projecting emotions and trying to figure out how these people felt about the facts that we know are true. That's what we think is so interesting about episode for which made me reflect a little bit of on the queen character in this season and an interesting thing is happening. We talked a little bit about this on the last episode. Where libya coleman is kind of popping out a little bit and coleman is one of the great actresses of time and also i find her personally hilarious so i think that that's great but i see moments where it nothing is on the page and it's just olivia colman giving it that sense of humor giving it that timing Or maybe even the character is being a little bit written to her strengths and that is also a little bit because the queen is not. i mean. she's not a side character but the way they're telling the story is about all of the other people and events who are kind of crowding into that character's life and how she's bouncing all of it but episode four is just it's about the queen and all of their writing it's character development that is in line with the past three seasons that we've seen and it's pretty extraordinary and i think libya coleman also does like a great job with the actual written script and the character and the reacting to like the horror show of her children. I mean they all are. Do you have a favorite of the four. Who is your favorite on the shore in real life. No on the show. I don't really i. It's shifted i think blassie's and it would have been charles and yeah and this season it's probably end. Although let me get to the end of it. I mean it's obviously not editor andrew. So yeah. I wanted to just quickly before we get into edward andrew charles. A little bit ask you you start this episode up. Did you expect the wedding. No if only because number one. I read some spoilers about how they don't show the wedding but i do also think in their when charles and diana yes yes. The most watched royal wedding. I think of all time. I i don't. I should have gotten this statistics. It was close to a billion people. Watch it. I mean that was everywhere and people taped it and watched it over and over again rate including me who. Dvr it when bbc america riera it before the wedding harry and meghan and it was part of their like twelve hour block of programming. I watched all of it i. It's pretty boring. They didn't really have their production values in one thousand nine hundred one that we expect from royal wedding now anyway but no. There was sort of finality to episode three and there was something intentional about the way they showed their rehearsal and kind of the real behind the scenes emotions where i was like. Okay this is an interesting choice and like this is what we're going to get and also i've seen it before was do because like they wouldn't be a lot of opportunity for people to be talking during that so unless there would be some fagin like wrinkle history that they wanted to explore not really sure what they would do their right. I mean it happened at such a scale that even it would defy the crown's siegi budget. I will say. I was surprised that diana disappeared for new episodes. We'll get episode five. But she is very briefly shown and she is heavily pregnant when she shown episode four. And she just won't come out of the room and in one way. That's really all you need to know. About how their marriage is going and how everything is you know how everything is is shaken out but on the other hand i was like uh this is a choice. Diana pretty popular. Yeah yeah no. I thought that the dow is interesting. Also the suggestion. That charles is starting to become under the influence of these gurus and like self help nutritionist. Which i didn't. I didn't know that about him. Oh yeah the the lawrence vander past reference. I only know about this from the tina brown book. But apparently he brought those books on their honeymoon and then tried to get diana who was twenty at the time of their wedding to read the books and discuss them over for dinner on their honeymoon. So that's how that went

"Call from a gentleman who wass up in arms about a video that he had seen on social media or about absentee ballots being marked on the envelope with an R or a D. Yeah, And I'm here to to explain that. It's been be bunk in the mainstream media long ago, and I'm surprised Well, actually, I'm not surprised that it's still kicking around. But here's the explanation. And then I think there are three really important takeaways from what is otherwise. A very trivial story. So the explanation is that? Yes, indeed, the ballots that were in that Facebook video posted by some lady from Florida. Name Tina Brown is that it was a primary election in Florida. Florida has closed primaries, roll voters register by party and then they get a partisan ballot. Sure if we just went to the polls, you you had to fill out whether you were voting on the Democratsside a Republican side to make your choices in the primary here in Michigan to that's that's very common, isn't it? No. In Michigan, you get one ballot and you fill out the Republican side or the democratic side. Your primary you are you all right? But But you could only vote on one side. You can't mix up your votes is what I'm saying. Yes, But Florida has closed primaries where you register with one party or another, and you only get that ballot. So that is the very simple explanation. Why, in a primary election in Palm Beach, Florida, U would have Ah return sleeve That's marked our or deed. So that explains the whole video. There's not one explained to him about it. And there's nothing. It has no impact on anyone in Michigan. There are five states that have closed primaries and it only happens in primaries. Those things Won't be on Florida ballots in the general election. The whole store is Caribbean and much to do about that. Now, here is what is important about the story. First of all, it's been debunked in the mainstream media and people people like mainstream media, but the main Did a good job of blowing the story up. The only reason that survived was because the race through All right, well, we lost you there, but I get the point and I agree with you. All of us have to be very, very careful with what we report that includes talk shows that includes news people. You know, everybody takes prided. And I mean this, even if if you have the most partisan person in the media, they take pride in trying to get accurate information out to the public. Each and everyone So I hear what you're saying. I understand your concerns, and that makes all the sense in the world to be of why that would be marked R and Andy on the on the ballots, And I'm glad you called and explained all of that for us.

the Cannes Film Festival and premieres in New York on Sunday afternoon at the I FC as part of fifty one fast fifty one fifth of the Film Festival for films about and by women its founder Tina brown will join us next hour but now here speak with us are wild Hines and Edward thank you so much for being here thank you for having us so why did you frame this as a love letter to your daughter how tall is something we I was always wanted to do for like everything I've tried to do was for hair and indirect way or indirect Tory so the firm laws with the help with Edward we were discussing with the best way to speak about the fan and how with the frame would be about the friend and we had that idea bought to telling that to Selma which has like a duty was a domestically bike the footage can tell you is that I want to be for some I want to speak with some added just because my life was as old mother and as a journalist at same time and everything I captures lost makes between they still lifes the mother and journalist and was the only way to be very honest and very sensitive about what I was what I went through and what man comes a thick discussions about hums a you you both were struggling in the film with whether to stay we are actually struggle you're pretty clear you're pretty clear that you're staying but you do bring up and you do address the feelings of would be safer for our daughter elsewhere what kind of conversations did you have off camera about them parents yeah it's the it was very easy is it like first like Vitti ad hard to take that it was immediately we took that decision but the conversation about that about thinking like what's best for our daughter because we had the option not tool bring her back with a start up had the option to leave her with my parents in Turkey but we thought that the siege yeah we had an a a aloha for example was seized for five years so we thought like are you really going to be away from our daughter for five years what a life to be or what are we going to we might be killed and is is it better for her to grow up as an orphan with her grandfather and grandmother but that that family over then we took the decision we would we one family or no different than any other family that are in east LA ball we live together or die together and that's it when you went back and looked at the film what do you after watching the whole film how do you view your decision it's still very complicated until now anti count really how vast the Lexington think about what we went through the man thinks about this that's what we've went to so is that happening now so you can't really separate yourself about okay this is a story and it's and and now I should have that's feedback about what's going on it's more about we should just try to use this for now as a and evidence on trying to tell the world what's what was going on and what's going on right now as we speaking and another place called and left the last very out of a subdivision so it's not about you know like I'm just training it's the didn't finish it's it's still we are at the same busy and difficult moment about take this shins even if it's not me at times and all but there's thousands and like like I don't know how many from is with a lot of families who have the same discussion now and they have literally no place to go where or there is no they don't have that's of opportunity to to have a discussion and we're tell me how you can involve the process so any met these two after they left the left by I'm because which wasn't that long ago right now it's not like three years three years from now yeah and and we met actually very quickly off to the left and no one realized that what it got that this incredible archive of old ideas in the city it was only after they left and she literally brought these back to war Scott hard drives with that to our colleagues in London and they realize she had this incredible all kinds to know and expand the conflict and everything that happened that it'll save their family store in the story of summer and sighed I think because it was so you brought to her still at that time and because people need to I was very passionate about Syria and I always wanted to tell a story about people like what in the hands of the middle class people eat them fighting for their freedom inside I think we will match made basically we have put together to work on it together there was a lot of footage there was a lot a lot of fish three hundred to five hundred hours yeah I have a five hundred I think I you know you're right as Stephanie I have a five hundred I mean she was filming all sorts of things I have a five years from the sublime to the horrific and site yet just the beginning of the process was just trying to Wade through and get a handle on this Voss archive which in itself took months and because she done such an amazing job what what was something in the footage that you mean you had to be in this goes in out of all those hours this has to be in this film there's also things which I thought that's been than we did and what you had more the decision about taking some things out was very very difficult to me it's more about you know I feel just these stories are very important every detail and every story and everyone not just like the other family Arafat Saddam and the kids on the just my from you but there's thousands of stories which I I think not just me with a manual and went on a everyone who works in the team of from or excuse reducers anyone who was involved in some part they have a preferred to footage they wanted to be but yeah at the end we couldn't make everything gets ninety five minutes so far and we can put anything more but I think we can make was there something Edward you had to be in there was a quite a few things I think I mean one of the things that always struck me was with old Hara based in the trauma that these guys have been through the thing that would bring the emotion most of the surface was the moment when they were forced to leave which was quite a surprise to me and I think to a westerner in general you think well you know at least you're getting out of this nightmare but it was such a visceral for both of them that that really hit me and and just explore not try to understand why that was the sort of point of maximum pain I guess yeah that's was one thing but there were many other examples we're talking about the documentary for sama the filmmakers wiped a tear and her husband actor home Hamza achieved and Edward watch so I would play a little clip because part of the film also is about your work yeah I'm sorry about your work as a doctor in about the last I can't even remember the news report about the last and in hospital and Aleppo let's take up a little bit of a listen to a clip from the film and we'll talk about it on the other side.

"Eight pm on C span one Matt gaetz who is an ally. President Trump Republican from Florida with the following tweet. Hey, Michael, Cohen, dear. Wife and father-in-law know about your girlfriend's. Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she'll remain faithful when you're in prison, she's about to learn a lot Matt gaetz who is a close friend of the president. We should point out that Michael Cohen originally postponed part of his testimony because of threats against his family former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says it's time for congress to connect the dots in the Russia investigation. During an interview with Tina Brown on her podcast, the two thousand sixteen democrat candidate won the popular vote losing the electoral college to President Trump says it's up to congress to educate the American people on what really happened. There is so much information out there that maybe we'll be all connected up in a final set of indictments and or a report, but there is enough grounds in what has already been made public for the government for congress in particular. To be doing more with it. And I'm pleased that under speaker Pelosi. The Democrats are beginning to hold hearings and try to connect some of these dots. You might know Tina that many years ago, I was on the impeachment inquiry staff for the house of representatives investigating Nixon and the public hearings that were held by the Watergate special committee were essential in helping to educate the public about what all this legal stuff meant. What is obstruction of Justice mean, for example? And we haven't had that opportunity. Many of the hearings and witnesses have been behind closed doors in the. Investigations so far. There hasn't really been the kind of solemn somber laying a facts and information before the public and the press that should happen in our democracy. Hillary Clinton onto podcast TVD with Tina Brown. And you're listening to Washington today on C span radio. The new bestselling book is titled the threat how the FBI protects America in the age of terror and Trump author Andrew McCabe is here in our studios. Thanks very much for stopping by. I want to begin with one of the headlines that came from your sixty minutes interview in which you talked about the deputy rod Rosenstein, wearing a wire discussing the possibility of invoking the twenty fifth amendment. Can you recall that ever happening under any other circumstances? No, certainly not Steve it's struck me at the time is just a remarkable thing to say, that's why I remembered it, that's why memorialize it. But neither neither mentioned where things that we. Acted upon. So neither are actually even included in the book. I decided that I thought that including them would be kind of inflammatory distract people from the bigger story. We were trying to tell but for those who studied the constitution and our democracy. What's the lesson? What's the takeaway? You know, I don't know that there's much of a lesson in in mister Rosenstein, mention of thinking about the twenty fifth of twenty fifth amendment, which is really the way that it came up. I think it's more of an indicator of the unbelievable stress and the somewhat kind of. Chaotic times that we were operating in these were the highest levels of the Justice department, and the FBI trying to navigate a totally novel and challenging situation under very very stressful circumstances, so I think it's more than indication of that and less a sign of certainly not a sign of anything that actually took place. You are in the middle of the book tour. We'll talk about the C span. Two book TV interview in just a moment. But what's it been like for you? It's been it's been amazing. I've gotten to meet so many people it's been a bit exhausting. I'll confess that. But it's just I'm just glad to finally be out and be able to tell tell my story to be able to talk about the FBI talk about the great work that the men and women of the FBI do every single day. Certainly there's a lot of it far beyond the scope of the Russia investigation, which is what many people like to hear about. But I've tried to tell the story of not only the work we do. But how we do it how we work how we make decisions that we do and the principals and kind of legal authority that those decisions are made upon rather than the kind of politics and personal preference. Things that people think and obviously you don't get a do over in life. But in hindsight, do you think in the summer of two thousand sixteen the fall of two thousand sixteen the director of the FBI James Komi should have done anything differently with regard to Hillary Clinton, the emails and the Anthony Weiner information. Well, Steve I spent a lot of time thinking about that. And I try to address those issues very honestly in the book, our decision in July to announce the results of the Clinton Email case is one that I think we probably should have thought differently about I certainly have the benefit of hindsight looking back on those things. And I think we underestimated the incredibly fraught political nature of the environment that we were releasing that conclusion into I think we overestimated Jim's ability to convince people as for the decision in the end of October to notify congress about the emails on Anthony Weiner is computer that was something that I did not agree with at the time that was Jim's decision, and he made it when you came across those emails in Anthony weiner's laptop. What was the reaction inside the department? It wasn't nearly as. It wasn't nearly as impactful as you would think I mean, the fact is that we had come across batches of emails on different machines and different servers all through the course of the investigation, and in the vast majority of those circumstances when we've come across what we thought might be a bundle of new information when we'd run it through our systems and compare it to the information we already had we would discover that. No. In fact, it was duplicates or copy copies of emails and things that we already had. That's of course, what ultimately happened with the material on the Weiner laptop. And I think many of us suspected that. That would be the case yearbook is now number one on Amazon. Did you expect this quickly? I did not I did not this is my first time doing this. It's my first book the whole experience have been kind of head-spinning, but it's been a busy but satisfying week. What did you learn about yourself in writing this book a great question? You know, the the entire. Process of writing the book really enabled me to step back. Kind of step out of the the the sort of immediate insult of having been fired and look at the expanse of my career in a more holistic way and try to derive some some themes and importance from the work that I've done from the day. I started in one thousand nine hundred eighty six until the day, I left so it was it was a very almost kind of cathartic thing to do in tumultuous time. Let me get your reaction to something that the president said recently about you, whether Andrew McCabe has made a fool out of himself over the last couple of days, and he really looks to me like sort of a poor man's J. Edgar Hoover as a I think is a disaster. And what he was trying to do is terrible. And he was caught. I'm very proud to say we call him. So we'll see what happens. But he he is a disgraced man he was terminated. Not by me. He was terminated by others. The report was a disaster disaster from his standpoint, anybody reading the report would say how could a man like this. Be involved with the FBI the FBI has some of the greatest people some of the finest people you'll ever meet. But this man is a complete disaster. Thank you very much. Thank you. Andrew mccabe. You've heard that before. But your reaction. Sure. So. You know, my reaction at this point, Steve is is one of just kind of pity. It's it's ridiculous. That the president continues to lie about me something he started in October of twenty sixteen. He continues to this date. And I understand it. You know, the president calls anyone who stands up, and and tells the truth about him about things they've they've seen and heard and decisions they've made. He he he runs right to discrediting. Everyone's credibility and calling everyone liar. So I'm not surprised by it. Steve. I don't know what he means by that reference today or your Hoover bit of it's not always clear what the president's saying. And I think this is one of those cases, I will tell you. I don't feel. I don't have any misgivings about standing up and telling the truth and sharing a story with the American people that I think is important to their understanding of events that clearly are very meaningful to a lot of folks. No matter what side of the political spectrum you happen to be on. I don't know that there's been an opportunity to really hear from anyone who was involved in those decisions. So having unique perspective to offer. And that's what I've done with the book as chronicled in the threatened, by the way, your interview on C span two's afterwards program airs this Saturday eleven AM eastern time again, ten PM eastern time on C span two's book TV after the tours over what's next for Andrew McCabe. Well, let's see I've I've enjoyed participating in this kind of national conversation about how we feel about the FBI and about the investigative work. They do I think that people would really benefit from knowing more about the agency that that occupies such an incredible position in American life. And in the American consciousness, but one that I would argue most people don't really understand how we work on a day-to-day basis. I think if I can continue kind of getting that word out, I think people would be less likely to fall for the baseless lies that here. In the media every day about FBI corruption and plotting coups and the rest of that nonsense the threat how the FBI protects America in the age of terror and Trump author Andrew McCabe. Thank you for being with us. Thanks, dave..

"Well, the first time that I met them, which is I don't event called all sweat, which is in Richmond Virginia. And when I saw them out in the parking lot. You know, we we have a way of knowing our own. As far as skaters go. So there's little things that it is that you do that you, you know, you just know you're supposed to be there. So while we kind of asked around we kind of ask, you know, a lot and what ended up happening is no one could really validate that they knew them. So we said either the news or they have to be the police. So so once we as the round a little bit and kind of figured out that we figured out, you know, the story of the Tina told you about the two skaters that actually, you know, brought them there. And then they told us what they were doing. And then that's when I started introduced around, you know, to the community because I mean, one thing about our communities were very welcoming of everyone. It's not limited just to the African American community. Even though it thrives with us. And there's things that it is that we have done. It is not limited to just the African American community. We welcome everybody who comes positive who comes with payroll or skates that are their own. And who just comes to have a good time. And you know, they they came with us and seer interest. And they just they found something, you know, where they didn't even know. Actually, Tom, wait, DNR ni-, obviously felt that. This was a story perhaps should be told from the inside from someone from the community or African American filmmaker. But you know, every time we tried to walk away. The skate is kept pulling us back hit. And you know, you should talk to this person. You talk to that person. And really feel that in the end, you know, we would chose him by the community tell the story, and, you know, once we we showed we edited a little tease to show them. We went to to skate jams, and we thought escape potties, and we thought if we telling the right story on the right track. Then we'll continue making film, the film that we think you know, we should make about this community. But if this is not something he wants to tell this is not the right direction the Milwaukee away. And we showed it to a room full of thousands of skaters, and we got a standing ovation people were crying and hugging us. And then then that was it. We just became part of the family and the Dole's. Opened across the country. So we would never will into a rink without escape from that community by outside. And you know, we made this with the skate community. This was unjust DR. And this is an alloy up there. It's really we just helping get the voice up up on the screen. Reggie when you saw the whole film come together. Like, it did what did you take away from the film? It was amazing because we hadn't seen it. The very first time that we actually got a chance to actually see the film was at Tribeca. Now, we've been filled in for the last five years. So it's a lot that is kind of happened throughout the duration of time. But when we saw it, you know, it was amazing. It was just amazing to see so many different pieces to my community that we're just kind of brought together along with other stories that some people knew and others did not some of the stories about, you know, hip hop history and relevance to the roller skating rinks and the artists being able to perform their some of the stuff about the cultural history of segregation as it relates to the roller rinks some stories in different things. So to see all of it come together. Of course, naturally ninety minutes over the course of five years says that there's a lot to it. This is one of those projects that it takes the whole community to make. And I mean, everyone everybody searching a little bit deeper into themselves paying attention to the things that are happening around them..

I want to think about and I bet that goes for a lot of you to pretty much the whole world. It's the last thing they want to think about nevertheless. A certain point. I got really angry about it. I got angry about one particular aspect of it. Which I'm gonna talk about actually several aspects. So three years ago, I was in a state of rage about climate change.

In the next ten years. The scenario that Klein contended could still save us the most likely rise in temperature this century is on the order of six degrees celsius. We'll be lucky to avoid a two degree rise before the year twenty thirty. Here's a paragraph that I'm gonna read slowly because I think it's important and myself when I read this kind of thing, my my mind bounces off it. But I'm going to try to get this across. In a polity evermore starkly divided as ours is the truth about global warming was even less convenient to the left than to the right?.
