"Markets are holding their breath to here with the status of COVID zero is and the plan in China. There seems to be underpinning a little bit of hope over despair as far as risk is concerned, Jules. Yes, Matt is in 90 minutes time. That press conference will start in China. We heard that about two hours ago now, and you've certainly seen a lot of risk on momentum. You also mentioned the fact that the protests were quelled somewhat by heavy police presence too. You're starting to see a little bit of momentum in terms of some of the state newspapers suggesting that perhaps there could be a pullback in some of the restrictions, excuse me. For example, saying that people that are unlikely to fall ill from the virus need fewer PCR tests. You've got the CSI coming off those gains of more than 3% as it came out of the lunch break, but still a very heavy buying session and Hong Kong's market being supported to buy a lot of the tech players we've had some good earnings details too. The likes of pinned World War supporting those tech players and also just watching the big momentum you're seeing in the rim and be there as we await this press conference up by about 1% against the greenback and China's ten year bond yield jumping the most in about a year. That's also on the back of support measures for the property sector Manus. And a pretty punchy move for one of the Japanese drug makers are under pressure here. One of the details. Yeah, this is not a great story. We have seen a fall the most in about 16 months in Tokyo. We've had reports of a second person in its Alzheimer's drug trial dying at the company though saying this could be due to the fact that she had also been taking a blood blood clotting anti clotting drug, I should say, and Issa itself saying that the drug is not associated with an increased death risk, but certainly a lot of investors backing off this company today. Let's just have a quick look as well at the what I mentioned rather about the property stocks in Hong Kong and China that index of property developers. It has risen some 60% in November and having another solid session of almost 10% today on the back of support measures. So the securities regulator lifting this multiyear ban on share sales potentially giving some more support to that beleaguered sector Manus. Jules, thank you very much, Judy. It's not like that with very little on the stop moves overnight in Asia. Well, we've heard from a slew of fed speakers, more hikes are on the way. There's nothing new there, but my next guest is bullish on banks as he expects rates to hit 5% and only come down in the fourth quarter of next year. Of course, managing director and head of equities, research and archive capital. Yep, good to have you with us. In terms of the bank exposure, I would just want to try and understand where you want to be exposed in the UAE. If your target rate is 5% on the terminal rate, who's your top pick because we've got deal flows coming through some of the banks, then we've got property exposure and

"Appetite in Hong Kong, particularly where property stocks are concerned. We learned earlier that China will end one of its major equity fundraising bans on property developers listed builders will now be allowed to sell local shares, funds can be used to repay debt and for acquisition purposes as well obviously the aim of all this is to ease some of the downturn that we have seen in the property market on the mainland. Real estate shares right now in Hong Kong as a group up by 3.7%, the hang seng near session highs, the gain here is something greater than 2%. On the Chinese mainland, Shanghai composite is up about 8 tenths of 1%. In Tokyo, we've got the nikkei down about a half of 1% the end slightly stronger here against the dollar not by much, but we had yen weakness during New York trading one 38 85. One of the big stories in Japan, the weakness that we are seeing in shares of eyesight. This is the Japanese drug maker. It has a U.S. partner Biogen, the two companies had been working on an experimental drug to treat Alzheimer's, apparently there has been a second death potentially linked to this treatment, and we had shares in Biogen during the late session a little bit weak, not by much, but eyesight shares right now down about a little more than 9%. In Seoul, Cosby rising four tenths of 1%, and in Sydney, the ASX 200 is ahead by about a tenth of 1%. In the bond market, the conviction here is that the fed is going to continue with its path of rate hikes, although the magnitude of these increases may be moderated just a bit. We are up in yield terms across the curve by about a basis .10 year now at 360 nine or two year at four 45. More on markets, on the other side of the top of the hour.

Michael Pack Was CEO of the U.S. Agency for Global Media Until Biden Shut Him Down
"You were in the Trump administration. And what was the title again? I'm fascinated. It was CEO, chief executive officer of the U.S. agency for global media, which is a $850 million year agency. It is one of the biggest broadcasters in the world. It's 5 different broadcasters reach an audience of over 350 million people with 200, 250 million people a week. So that's a huge number. So this is an opportunity for the United States to reach the world with a voice of freedom with the voice. All of this stuff, and we've been doing this for how many decades? Voice America started it's smart off of an earlier organization during World War II. So it really goes back to World War II. Some of these other of the 5 broadcasters were more recent. But the process goes back to World War II. Right, but it's the opposite of Tokyo rose. This is like leaving freedom and we're trying to share freedom with the world. And we have this huge megaphone called The Voice of America and you were appointed by Trump to head that up and the deep state said, right? Really don't like American style freedoms. But we're going to try to crush you. That is exactly right. Even before, I mean, I make this point in the article.

"Of the FBI. She was held in custody for a year. During which time, the FBI and the military government under Douglas MacArthur conducted an investigation, interviewing hundreds of people, including the POWs that worked on her show. They also dug up hundreds of documents to see if she had committed any crimes. After a year she was released after the FBI and U.S. counterintelligence service, found no evidence of wrongdoing. However, this wasn't the end of her problems. Back in the U.S., the public led by newspaper columnist Walter Winchell, campaigned to have her tried for treason. In 1948, she was re arrested in Japan and returned to the U.S. to stand trial. And here I need to move the story from Japan to Germany. Because they too had their own version of Tokyo rose, known as axis Sally. Unlike Tokyo rose, which was a name given to many different people, there were not as many access sallies, and in particular, it was a very specific person. Mildred gillars. Gillers was born in 1900 in Maine. She was a vagabond for most of her life, moving around trying to make a go of it as an actor or a model. She eventually left the United States in 1929 to live in Paris for 6 months. In 1933, she left the United States again, going to Algeria to work for a dressmaker, and then landed in Dresden Germany to study music and teach English. In 1940, she got a job with German state radio as an announcer. In 1941, the United States advised all Americans to leave Germany. But by that time she was engaged to a German national who wouldn't marry her if she returned to the U.S.. When war broke out in late 1941, she couldn't go back if she wanted to. In 1941, Gilles was recruited into hosting a show called home sweet home, which had popular music and spent a lot of time telling soldiers how their sweethearts back home were being unfaithful to them.

"So radio was how people entertain themselves and were informed. While there were many ways to spread propaganda, radio was uniquely suited to do so. It required very little investment. It was very low risk compared to dropping leaflets, and it could reach an enormous number of people. It was for this reason that both sides during the war used radio to try to reach their opponents. The British would broadcast BBC shows in German, and the Americans created their own radio shows in German and Japanese, which were intended for an enemy audience. German born actress and singer, Marlene Dietrich recorded radio broadcasts in German for the American office of strategic services, which were used in Europe. So it came as no surprise about the Germans and the Japanese did the same thing. In the Pacific and in Asia was common for the Japanese government to produce English language radio programming using female hosts for their show. These programs would be broadcast out of cities like Manila Shanghai and Tokyo, which were occupied by the Japanese. They would play popular American music, interspersed with heavily slanted news updates, which were intended to demoralize American troops. American soldiers did in fact listen to these broadcasts because there wasn't much else to listen to. In Asia, the hosts of these programs became known as Tokyo rose. It should be noted that there was no one person who was Tokyo rose. It was a generic name given to any female host who worked for the Japanese. In fact, none of the hosts ever called themselves Tokyo rose. It was a name used by the soldiers. Tokyo rose served as a focal point for American anger in the Pacific because it was an actual person who spoke their language. For the most part, their enemy was a distant faceless opponent with whom they couldn't communicate. Tokyo rose, however, was someone who talked directly to them. She would tell the Americans of their defeats. Ignoring Japanese defeats, of course, and try to sow doubt about their chances of victory and the justness of their cause..

This was the race. it's not the ride. It's the writer. Says that like really early in the movie really early house. A good one. And i do love when dom shows up and him and sean talking before these before the race. Sean says to dom the ten second race. I got nothing but time. Great line guys time magazine. But i was like dom man. You're in the movie for like two minutes and you get a classic line off. Yep okay that's good. Let's get the furious part of the podcast things we hated to see whatever. Jd will start with you. What was your least favorite part of a movie. You really liked here in tokyo drift. Wiler couple of weird moments like the very beginning of the movie. There's this The scene where this kid is fat. Kids getting bullied right getting rape painted on them. And we see sean sort of poke. Poke his head around the corner. What's going on. And then he just sort of ignores it and goes back. So i know so weird weird. Yeah and never really paid off except i was thinking after. Maybe that's why he comes to our defense on the roof when he's getting beat up over the ipod right. Maybe like changed his ways a little bit but just friends with twinkie like right. We don't know if he's friends with this kid. That's getting his chest paint exactly and it's like shot. It's because it's the. It's like that super slow. Just it's just weird apart. Yeah yeah so. I don't know. Or maybe it's just establishes him as like a mercenary type. Like i'm only in whatever i'm doing it's to help me and that's it. So may so that part sort of was weird and then that character is pretty wooden. I mean he's he's panned that performance by what's his name lewis black. Lucas is is quite wooden. And it's like There's not much doesn't seem to be a lot of depth there. There's part of this movie totally you kind of. Forget about him even though he's the he's the the lead. But maybe i'm over thinking this but maybe that's by design because he's just such a when i described my dog to people like he's a brown dog he is if you're playing video game as a dog. He's the default dog right. he's he doesn't have a specific greed is just and then you start adding stuff to to right to make them interesting right. That's my dog and that is shown in this movie and he's just like an empty. Shell like an avatar for us. We're sean right leg. So we're injecting our personality into into sean and we're living this experience through sean. I mean that's charitable as. I'm going to be about it but i don't think it's his fault as the actors fault necessarily but he's just not very well written or well thought out and ultimately it doesn't really matter but what about you trae what made you furious.

"That's what that was bursting his way out of the car. Laura says to me as their unveiling it what is that like a whole car. Just straight up. The incredible hulk made into a car. But we never see it driven balance. A bummer. to me we never see a driven but the man's got a nice car. Yeah it does look nice but when it comes out when you see it and you can sort of see through the window into the interior. It's got they'll this for everywhere. And i was just like now. I'm out your. I liked the car but the the interior of it is just shag everywhere. It stinks in there. There's no way it does not stink in there. Just just boy. China cars just hold stink and especially if there's a carpet and whatever and it was all over the place but yeah you're right trey i. I kinda just didn't realize that the next scene we see them driving a different car right like do we. How do they get up in the whole car theft. That's maybe the only driving's and we definitely never see. What did you say. his name is. Twitter byles name and this. We never see him racing But i guess they are rolling through the first tokyo race meeting the people seeing the scene. Yeah yeah yeah so. We're at this parking garage where we're at. And this is where. Sean has his first confrontation with takashi who is known s the drift king decay for sure. Yeah and of course. Sean can't help himself man. he's talking to neela. Who is takashi. Girlfriend we learn and who is also one of his classmates. I know sort of glossed over that. There was the the first meeting between the two the eye contact in class where he goes in for the first time and i guess the big payoff of that scene is. He's wearing a shoes and slippers on exactly right but they have an immediate immediate connection. Yeah i gotta say neela by far the most attractive female lead. We've had in any of these three movies by a mile. Beautiful beautiful woman. So i can see why sean was instantly attracted to her. So yeah. They get into it though because takashi doing like that's my girl so what happens well you guessed About it got race. You're talking to my girl we're racing that's how it goes and this is strange to me. Sean doesn't know anybody he knows drink. That's it and he's going to raise some doesn't have a car. You would think twinkled like ride. The hulk gives the whole ago. Sure but no instead he gets a two thousand one nissan from a racer named hunt. This guy is blood with takashi and he throws him his keys like yeah you can use my have at it It's like okay shirt..

"Saifi the paralympics. Starting on monday after a lot of upheaval and doubts that that even go ahead. It must've been such a relief for you to find out you're going to tokyo after all. Yeah it was well. I mean we got selected at the end of may. So i knew from the end of may the i was selected to go but actually making it on the fly was another another story. Because you know we've got covert that's looming over us all the time and then the moment of watching the olympics and i think it becomes real at the closing ceremony of the olympics. Because then it's like right. There's nothing else to watch everything. Stone when next is staggering to think that it was only in twenty twelve before the london olympics that you just started getting into wheelchair basketball and when you look back to that time the paralympics were in a very different place. How much you think. Public perception has changed. They were massively. But since then i think there was a massive spike. Initially after linden the paralympics were seen as equal. I think that's all well and good in those moments but actually for disability sport. You don't see our sport especially wheelchair basketball. You know any other time really. The coverage is in great our even our world championships and european championships. Out streamed as well as i personally think they should ban are probably biased but one in four people of our population have a disability and we are not represented one in four times a wheel. Trust all and it's like oh welcome for trying. No i train this hard as olympian does. I'm a paralympian. And i'm proud of that and i you know work hard to to get there and so for me this still work to be done and so how would actually feel to win a medal in tokyo all winning a medal. Paralympic medal is honestly. My biggest dream is biggest goal in life and obviously gold would be the absolute pinnacle book. Success for us would come in the form of a medal because we never one one before we've got world silver european silver that the best achievements that we've have as a team so far. We came fourth in rio so we were that team. That was just one place you know. Missed it just by one place. So i think it just made me so much more hungry. I suppose for what has been now five years of preparation into tokyo. And i think we're ready. I think we're in a great place and quietly confident going into these games that we've got really good chance of bringing home a medal and honestly i've thought about it already where when i put it. What would i do frame man. When i tell you i feel like i need to like sleep with it for a week or something at least just to make sure that it was actually real. Maybe i should make something like tom daley to put it in. Yeah i mean. I'm keeping my fingers tightly crossed. That success comes out way and we've worked really hard so whatever happens really proud of this team. I feel sixteen year. old self. could see now. what would you think. Oh i think should be really proud. I think should be yeah. She'd be happy and she saw think. Wow it does alter now all right. In the end overcoming adversity it's possible and living fulfilling and happy an amazing life afterwards. he's also more than possible so it was such a pleasure to speak to you. Thank you so much. And obviously we wishing you so much good luck. We're gonna be really hard for you back at home. Thank you so much. I really appreciate the support..

"Although i went to a match where they were piping in Artificially the sound of applause and cheering and that was just really weird. Because i'm here. I am staring at these empty stands and yet hearing Kind of taped recordings of applause. Cheer that you know. It's just very irian. A little bit sad and certainly bittersweet. I covered the nineteen ninety eight Olympic games in nagano japan. And i do remember how very proud the japanese were to show their country in their culture to the world. I'm wondering if that the if there's a sense of that among the japanese people. I mean they are. The games are being lauded for their level of organization. If nothing else well. I mean i think a lot of people feel like they didn't get to show the country. I was watching the closing ceremony last night. And there was a segment where they had people on the street dressed refashion dancing doing couple eva doing double dose job skateboarding Do the stunt biking and it was supposed to evoke at japanese or tokyo park A little bit more actively than normal day park all at once. But i had the feeling watching that like this is what the people who came for. The olympics didn't see i was talking to sports editor tonight explaining to him where yoyogi park. The the main park where a lot of this stuff happens is and is not something that he thought to see because he was in quarantine for fourteen days and it just seems a little bit of a missed opportunity for japan that they really did want to show off their country and they haven't really been able to and just finally the olympics may be over but the paralympics are set to begin in about two weeks. What water japanese views toward that starting up and people coming in again well. They haven't actually decided what they're going to do about spectators. I mean obviously. They've already been international spectators for the pandemic but they haven't made a decision about whether they're going to also ban domestic spectators like they did for the olympic such just finished So i think people are waiting to hear about that. There probably is a little bit of weariness layer gay. We're ready to be done with all of this on the other hand. I think there probably are people who have tickets will be interested to know whether it'll be allowed to go And then there will also be questions for the organization of it and how it's managed because there are lots of different issues for paralympic athletes like whether or not they're allowed to bring assistance they may normally have and so i think will be a lot of focusing attention on you know how normal those games can be given all of the protocols that are normal is just not normal anymore. No there is no normal mature. Thank you very much for your time. Thank you so much for having me. Matoka riches tokyo bureau chief for the new york times for more. Cbc podcasts goto.

Because it it really does a country its chance to put its best foot forward and to represent present to people what they feel they are who they are as a country as a people as a culture and again the high bar from a technical standpoint is still the beijing opening ceremony But you know from an emotional standpoint. Again i would. I would give you the atlanta olympics. I would also say the london olympics was was a very emotional theatrical experience. Remember the london opening. what was they had.

"As to what things could have been like in terms of fans at these games because japanese sporting culture man is also a special thing. How would you describe that for people who have no idea what that's like it's amazing it's like something you never you never seen. It's i guess. The closest thing take alabama and auburn but also add in everything had a premier league match is insane the way the fans are here in a good way in a very good way. They're so passionate is so loud and it's an exciting atmosphere in an olympics here with all the fans until adding on from the fans who would have been coming into japan and would have also gotten caught up in their same revelry. It would have been amazing. That's something in the world would have been able to see. He would have been able to see during baseball games. Fans chanting as if they're at a soccer match during softball games. This entire stadium of people screaming gone wild on every pits. So it's it's a real loss to not have the fans at these games or at least not have most. There are some fans in two or three venues that are far outside of tokyo. But even even then. It's not the same jason. I'm also curious about. The excitement was like around some of the more notable japanese athletes. That'll be taking part in these games. And i'm thinking of people like naomi osaka who'd represent japan tennis and ryuhachi mora the ford for the nba's washington wizards plane japan in basketball. I mean how do people feel about watching their native born stars on this sort of a global stage. People were excited his a lot of pride around japanese athletes who go abroad and have a lot of success as i'm sure there is in any other country. Obviously as you might guess in. This people are beaming about shohei. Otani is so much pride about him and now soko winning and yet really hutchings being drafted and also doing well every night on the news as wizards highlights because of hachi murray there's canot igarashi was a surfer. Who was born in california. It's his parents actually moved to california when his mother was expecting him because his dad was a big surfer wanted him to be a surfer and he became a surfer and he's gonna come back to japan and the surfing venue for the games is the place that his dad discovered when hit with his friend. He was a kid son's going to be. There's a swimmer in japan rico. Casey won the best swimmer then. She came now's leukemia. And she battled leukemia and at the gains been held last year. I don't think she would've made it. Because you still recovering. But she got better. She got to the point where she can swim again. And she was in paris as her comeback to go global stage and associate went to the japanese trial then basically like swimming tokyo. I'm not swimming in tokyo on to actually made the team. She was fighting leukemia. Two thousand nineteen. This is an amazing story. There's a pitcher in japan. Name yoshinobu yamamoto. Who is absolutely amazing. Anyone who watches the baseball is just gonna be amazed at the break in bosnia. This guy throw what he's going to do to the other teams in masahiro. Tanaka is here. He's on the olympic team. And there's a japanese softball player yamato fujita who hit since he hit it homerun today actually. She's been caught the softball tiny. So yeah there was a lot of a lot of pride. japan loves. it's done in daughters and the people who can help bring prior to the country. Because i think that makes everyone feel good when you see one of your own doing very very well on a global scale jason. Thanks so much for joining us man. And i hope the games for your sake at the very least are as great as they could be a. Thank you for having me i. I hope it's i hope. Everyone enjoys it as much as they can. Under the circumstances.

"So you get to see them from all over the place but it probably be a lot more festive. If everything happening around these olympics where it happening and the mood in the city among the people of japan i've been reading from afar that widespread pushback seems like a reasonable characterization of the national mood around this thing so as we stand before the olympic opening ceremonies. How would you say. Japanese citizens are feeling about all of this fatigued. How does the when. Japan got the olympics. Tokyo got the olympics excitement around here committee of announcing that the thirty second olympiad implanted when awarded of tokyo and then when the virus and everything really started to get really bad and of course people were wondering why are we having the olympics to call it soften when they finally got postponed in march. Then it was. Okay we have a little time to wait and see what's going to happen. In basically since march twenty twenty. It's been a dance of will the happen. Audie olympics happened the virus cases. Can we have an olympics with this virus going on can we have an olympics of the population is in vaccinated. Can we do this safely. Why isn't anyone stopping. This wire. Duar we being held hostage in have been protested. The big san. There's been posed where people wanted to cancel it and i think as the inevitability of the happened at you saw a little bit more of a warming toward the games which i think some of that's probably fatigue where it's going to happen what we do maybe we can just grin and bear it and that sort of thing so i can understand that sense of inevitability of fatigue but at the same time we also just heard this week.

"I know certainly at some point that the public polling around this very low right like a lot of people didn't want the olympics on monday. The asahi shimbun newspaper published a survey of more than fourteen hundred. People and found two thirds. Do not believe japan can host a safe insecure olympics. God's but what's your sense of of how the japanese public is feeling now. Well i mean. I i i keep thinking back to when tokyo one the bit talk you. It was really emotional. That was a really big deal the last time. Tokyo held the games in nineteen sixty four. This was this was japan's coming out. After the you know the devastation and the defeat of the second world war they rebuilt the city for those olympics. You drive on roads right now. That happened because of the sixty. Four games at national united states amazon. joining hands. very inspiring excitement gentleman. Saturday'll you would have to be here actually say to really understand the friendship so tokyo twenty twenty was going to be this rebirth. You know and they were so excited. It was sort of rebuilding. After the horror of fukushima earthquake turns nami nuclear accident after you know a lot of economic stagnation this was going to be there in nineteen sixty four again. There was like so much writing on and they were so excited and then and then of course. The world stops spinning right. And then you started to see this anti-olympic sentiment and usually you know. There's a pattern to the olympics. The week before everything is terrible but once it cauldrons lid it gets really busy you know. And it's the stories of the athletes had takeover. But something feels different about this one. And i spoke with dick pound last night. He's the most senior member of the ioc said canadian and he said this is the thing that keeps him staring at the ceiling at night. Which is that this time that feeling will linger be worried if my expectation that wants the game start. Public opinion is going to shift. I'm worried that that might not happen. The social media saying this. This is going to happen. This is going to happen. And that's not going to happen if people see just totally uninformed and they can become irrelevant jimmy. There's no touchstone for people i. I went to the rehearsal for the opening ceremony. And you know. The aren't going to be any japanese spectators in there at all. This huge beautiful stadium built on the site of the nineteen sixty four stadium everything so poignant and it's pretty quiet in there but there are little rings there's a there's an olympic rings right beside the entrance on a patch of artificial turf and people are lining up to take their pictures beside it and i find it very sad because the what will be the cauldron that people love to go and visit is now blocked off. Because they don't want people gathering there they can't go into this into the stadium. They have to watch on television. So they're one touch point is just the rinks. They're paying for these olympics. I'm just not sure what they're getting out of them. At this point. I really do hope that. At some point in the coming days we will we will get to hear some other narratives. Come out of this. Because i love the olympics. I mean i. I am really privileged. This is my six olympics to cover. And i i love it for the moms and dads you know i. I love it for watching families who have invested everything time money heart a lot of heartache into their kids in that moment standing there and watching watching helplessly but so lovingly.

I'm seeing graffiti. I'm already feeling uncomfortable. What's going on with canada's uniform. Yes those those were my words unfortunately your this is quite a good following from the skateboarding. Point because that one's showed is what happens when you try to be young and cool and you get it right. That's what we've seen with the skateboarding uniforms. What we're seeing is when you try to be kind of young and cool and edgy and you get it wrong. These uniforms have had a lot of press. I'm sure a lot of painful of saying them and which they had but they basically done a play on the canadian tuxedo with. We see kind of famous for like denim jackets. There's nothing wrong with a denim jacket. Nothing wrong with some double denim. It's more just how they've decorated jockettes. So they've there's like graffiti on the back in read. That says like tokyo in canada but the lead is kind of mixed about it just a lot of graphics printed all over the place. It's quite punkish quite aggressive. Which seems to be odd for the olympics. i think they also just look naff. They look like someone much older has done. What they think kids are wearing. These days has just kind of missed it. that were designed by hudson's bay huge canadian retailer. And yeah i just think it's tried to be youthful and cool and edgy. And that just aren't they've also got on one of the other outfits they've got like a bum bag slung across the show so i think they've really tried to think about what young people wearing at the moment. But where designed to like halos that because he's defining what young people are wearing these. Unfortunately the canadian designers haven't so yeah. I do feel sorry for those athletes. No the gone so badly wrong here and you know you can just imagine these poor athletes. They've worked whole lives probably from being kids to get to this olympic games and you know the games a bit of a disaster with covert and then they have to wear these ridiculous outfits. I'm very worst of all the bad denim jacket. This is not good so maybe let's just wrap up on a positive. There's a few others that you've you've said on your best list not your worse list. You've got china and france on there. Which would you like to talk about. I think we can kind of took them together. Actually because i think what they do is that kind of simple and understated the design. So i think if you have a really agenda-setting designer lack attell far or like you know the nike cleberation. You can do something really cool and fun. But i think a lot of the time. There's nothing wrong with a really simple classic uniform. The french designed you know they've just done like block colors. Red widened blurt. France has good colors. they work well. They've got these kind of polo shirts. That look a little bit. Is that the slaves a quite long down to the elbow that sort of blocked off in navy reds navy trousers. They look like the nice ikat that just sort of seem understated. Flattering very french and the chinese designs. That by the oscar-nominated costume director team yip who was nominated crouching tiger hidden dragon and he's designs a predominantly white with the reds kind of trim. It looks like is some kind of traditional fastening to the jackets on again. They look slake quite understated. And i think part. The french and chinese designs safe effective and fluttering safe effective unflattering. That's olympic design. Should really be all about. But it's amazing to to chat to you jamie and i think you know we've kind of gone across the board if you're rooting for country which is which apparently has bad colors. You told me earlier that we're going to block that one out. Who do you think is going to looking the best at the olympics liberia. I can't wait to say the liberian team. i would. Of course like you know both you at i can be looking out for the ozzy's and i think that uniforms a bad. I don't think that the i mentioned before that grain goats. It's fine but it's just like a lot. It's a law so not my favorite color combo. That's not assurance vote. I'll be looking out for ozzy's but my is also looking to liberia. Because i think that will definitely be best on the truck that was jamie waters. They're running through some of the best and worst uniforms. You're going to see at this year's games and that's all the time we have on today's show if you're keen for even more designed related listening than catch a five minute. Midweek's is to show multiple on design. Extra it as every thursday. Today's show was produced and edited by mainly evans. Thanks to a research nick. Minnie's and charlie film a court. I'm nolan giles. Thank you very much for listening and goodbye..
"tokyo" Discussed on Monocle 24: Section D
"Talk about being privy to the design. I'm working with the design is what was your involvement on oil your relationship with the design team. Yeah so i wasn't a part of the cooling technology. But i had a meeting with the design team after rio. And they're just asking what were some of my favorite pieces. What did i see a lot of the other athletes wearing. Was there anything that i saw. Athletes didn't like perhaps. What are we want. more of what's going to be more beneficial for us. And so i got to kind of give a little bit of feedback on my thoughts on the rio stuff and they said thanks and i talked to one of designers last week in new york and she said she used some of the thoughts and ideas when they're designing the suffer tokyo so it's cool to be part of that and learn a little bit about behind the scenes because there is a lot that goes into it so as a fun experience so i. I guess i'm curious. What sort of insight did you give them was it. Was it just about the fact that you're having to stand in the hate for a long time like six hours. Those opening and closing ceremonies or was this something more to it with some of the village. Whereas we'll talk about how figuring out if like a way to customize it to where it's like it's still team usa but it has a little bit of flare wherever it is you're competing and that way. It's it's team usa shirt for tokyo. And obviously you're going to want some neutral stuff that kind of fit across any games but one of the things they did for tokyo. There's some shirts. Sat usa but then it says tokyo in japanese right so it's a little bit of that flair to kind of be able to say. This is a tokyo shirt and.
