U.S. Wholesale Inflation Rose a Record 8.6 Percent Over the Past Year
"Remember the narrative about inflation when we first started when we first started to see prices creeping up What was the narrative first Jim Inflation's not real you're conservative media hosts You're all a bunch of bad things It's all nonsense And then the narrative was as prices started to become more widespread and their increases became noticeable All right there may be inflation but it's really not that big of a deal And then the third narrative was okay it's a big deal now inflation but don't worry it's transitory It'll go away And now that the numbers came out annualized inflation up 8.6% a number we haven't seen in decades now all of a sudden the new narrative is not only these inflation not transitory not only is it likely here to stay for a while but don't worry it's actually a good thing Come on they didn't do that No they did Here is an actual headline by MSNBC James saros wiki forgive me if I'm saying your name wrong it's not intentional How COVID became the unlikely hero of our inflation crisis And the sub had line makes you really wanna laugh where they play it down and insist don't worry This is a good thing inflation because the government printed a lot of money and gave it to people to spend So it doesn't really matter that you have nothing to buy and there's a supply chain crisis What matters is you have a lot of paper in digital money to spend on things you can't actually buy That's what matters That's an actual piece in MSNBC by the way Now for people who don't think inflation is a problem in that just printing people are printing four people money and giving it to them even though they can't buy products because we don't have them And don't understand how the productivity side of an economy is the important side Right folks it's not the demand side You can demand whatever you want Tom Hanks and Wilson and cast away when they get caught on that island by themselves demanded a lot They probably demand that a steak dinner They probably demanded access to a movie library The man that access to their old favorite songs but Tom Hanks was caught on an island where he had a lot of FedEx boxes full of a lot of stuff he couldn't use and he didn't demand So he had a lot of things he could trade but he had nobody to trade them with because no one was producing anything he demanded Having a bunch of money to go out and buy stuff that doesn't exist is

"Coffee but certainly not a coca cola. Not an ice cold beer and cantina water. I'm digressing here. Probably doing the same thing. That i'm worried of turning it into something. That is so honorific and so edify and it makes us feel good like comfort food win. What stories of that war and let those men with the entire world but through it showed instead. Give us us on. How do we keep that from happening again. Who are the people that are going to see to that. We don't fall into that same sort of narrative which it's us versus them. They screwed us. And it's our last question you've been incredibly generous can talk about this stuff. All i watch band the brothers on an annual basis and a new millions of others around the world duty tape so last question foyer speak to an audience. A young audience who have not yet watched it and make the case. Tom what will they say the challenge what they will see themselves and if they don't see themselves fail they will see themselves in that every day they make a decision. We all make the decision of how take on the responsibilities of doing the right ways that are large and small against the huge patina of a worldwide conflagration. You don't have to shift your focus very much to see that. The world is in the same state of affairs that there is great injustice being done. they're great movements afoot. They are great philosophies in theologies out there that are based on dividing us opposed findings. Sometimes it's a absolute mismatch of cultures that can never ever ci but in the midst of all of that comes reality that we all have to make this decision. We all have choice. And one time i will tell you i made to sell the movie but senate more than my li- i wasn't i. I made this movie called cloud atlas in which at the end of it. Someone is being castigated for trying to goodi tissues and says why are you to do this. It's just going to be a drop in the ocean. Why are you trying to make such a sacrifice and do the right thing. So i'm not going to be a drop in the ocean. The line is one is an ocean but a multitude of drugs. And so i would say that if anybody's never see band brothers but they will see. Is that multitude of props. They will see a version of a historical document that is nothing more than a record of ordinary humidity type of choices that will make an course When we started on the actors were assembled for the beginning of ten day. Boot camp training. There's been saving private ryan aspect to a stephen is there. I was making castaway time. So i had this big stupid.

"You're getting this raw. That gave us a headache that gave us a very specific task to dis. We cannot embellish this. We have to remember. Possibly these guys worked trained planned from the get go and unless they were hurt unless they were caught on ahead unless they were under fire they were moving towards their object. So that one conversation did a lot of things for me both as a producer and also in that individual circumstance because what was happening was that people were thinking. How can i make this a little different additives. By the way their job is do that. Sometimes what came down from top was. Your job is not make a different. Your job is to hit on the head as we have proscribed so that altered when the big things that i learned in when the reasons that series sticks to is that it was the job of everyone was to find a way to make what really happened. Dramatic not embellish. Feel as it will work so we have to do something else. No no no. No here's what happened is breaking down. Find a way in order to make this. I don't think they would really believe that. This happened doesn't matter if they believe at find a way in order to make it so that it and we had that capital with moments again and again again. There's one episode in the village of foix or flos f. a. y. No one knows how to pronounce these things in which happens. Speier's ran right through the german. Laxed meet up with somebody ran right back and the reason he wasn't killed this because he ran so fast. Believe believe that happened. And we're going to figure out what to do at first. The germans didn't shoot. I think they couldn't quite believe they were saying but that wasn't really astounding thing the astounding thing was that after you hooked up with. I company came back when i talked about deck of cards. If you start embellish things that means wind up with deck of sixty three or you end up with decca forty two cards and that's not enough. You've got a nail it when you can now when year when we were at that very same premier that i thought about. Hbo stops all veterans had been flown to paris and we also trained normandy and were greeted by little kids from the communities that we're doing their little clicker so it sounded like it was raining really quite beautiful. Then we all got on the bus and it was june. Six two thousand and one now is in. The bus with car would lift and understand. We're taking a ride through. The book. is that he himself and walk through at that time. And i happen to be with carbon and his wife and i looked at my watch and it was not it was high new. We're on our way down to the beach. I would live. It's twelve noon ton. Jude sex noon on this day. The nineteen forty four and he said by noon of june six.

Twenty one now just one hundred thousand second world war veterans alive and the youngest who served an around the age of ninety five. Did you see this story ban. The brother story actually getting more important as time goes on and these heroes are no longer able to tell it themselves and would you believe will happen if we lose their narrative in our consciousness. Well the narrative is going to change no matter what simply because on one hand we talk and we specifically encapsulated this so a lot of ways and two brothers is going to be locked in amber forever. It's always gonna be this example wanted. We're going to come up. Among last veteran were on one team..

"Actually i think talking about two things. One is the long haul that anything like this was going to be. And certainly what went along with everything. Post nine eleven was a very long all but also come down to that. Very thing that we're talking about is what would i do incense situations or guess. What's lou rawls certains. We were part of a home front. They're young then that we're going to be going off and doing what their country asked to do. And there were actually much bigger questions about why why. Why doesn't everybody except freedom the same way. Why can't we get along so the rest of the series ended up being a different kind of viewer experience because by time we were saying something about world war two at the same time we were asking if we were not living world war september. The eleventh forever changed america and the world and the immediacy of war the unsparing horizontal loss. The band of brothers contains amend the audiences immediate. Embrace of the series was muted when initially add-in real towing but since then and this show the increasing popularity overtime year on year. On your it just seems to have increased exponentially tom. how'd you understand. Moines think it comes down to the desire for assault belong to something bigger than ourselves and to earn membership into whatever that society is that we seek out like minded people that greet the day look awesome covens the same way renewed for each other and under the big questions was. How do we make the world. I cannot tell you how many letters emails messages. I've gotten from servicemen and women around the world who saying we watch band running this regularly to remind ourselves why we're in this in the first place. There's a cliche. They always say both series and and the military's we don't do this for the big picture. We don't do this to defeat the enemy we do for each other. We do it for the other guys in the tent. We from the other guy from the guys in the and even our series they all say real the real heroes of the fellows stove buried over there and those should come home to be very. That's the legacy. That is definitely gone after by stephen ambrose himself but is it going to put the most positive spin homeless. It's going to be look what can happen when like minded people get together. that's it. it's as simple as that. I am drawn to that again and again when she one of the reasons why i studied history there are moments throughout history in which impossible things unimaginable. Things have come to pass. Because like-minded people decided to get together and make it so now here we are in twenty twenty one. This has come in the face of the other realities. Meanwhile you have. Meanwhile we had this great dilemma. That we spoke about at the time is that we were making a series about white guys. That volunteered go off and fight white guys and save the world and which white guys got together and save the world all right. Well what about the black about. The african american troops up the segregates the best we have time for. And if you watch the series and it's in my episodes in episode five we had black drivers of the famous very famous red ball express. Driving the trucks carried easy copies. Five six hundred.

"Then let's go and then from that came the agreement from hbo to say well. Look if you're going do this do a big. They gave us the budget. They gave us the time but they also gave us the freedom underwear with all due. Go deeper into individual moments. Hbo agreed to ten episodes which is actually much more than two hours all together. Like eleven hours of television to say make. It lasts for ten weeks. This was extraordinarily lions and then the question begins. We will how deep you go into this. There are certainly characters in order to follow. But there's also the overreaching theme which is different a bit from saving private ryan from everything houses as these guys were paratroopers. They were volunteers. They had to win the wings they had to prove themselves in order the accepted into the paratroopers said so. There's a bit of an elite force. Cotton thing to them on the reality. I'm saying no by the way essentially chubby animal planet. And you land to get your job done so wanting to do it happens again and again to me and i think it's as well is that we learn something want experience and we learn so much that we're not able to break through the screen desire was to continue on and find an alliance. Hbo and say. I think we have about eleven hours. Truly rock stock and stuff that we do screen and it's going to be a little expense mason. Okay you'll know of brothers. That's the book won't dc in that narrative. When you first read it won't let town year was at the scope for the story that you would then be able to take a viewer all the way from d. day to eagle's nest at the end of the war in europe really the essence of the gi experience. It was that very narrative that we took these guys from the barracks in the united states in georgia and we deposited little eagles nest. We didn't have to invent anything. The narrative was all in place. All the logic was their leading well-needed corley. They were literally in great places throughout certainly normandy landings but then they failed miserably in misguided market garden and and they had to drive in to be surrounded in the battle of the bulge. They had to continue on and they literally sweeping across germany of the war's end so it was a perfectly out of locale and character development. That is also extraordinary because there were some guys who did you get a scratch on them and we had them from the i. V until the very last the scope of what easy company in the five of six experiment was a bit of a gift for us because we never had to create a narrative out of whole cloth. We always had it in hand and while we were in the pursuit of it because it was such a hurly-burly owner do we were always writing future episodes at the same time that we were shooting and be research and work that we would do on say episode three. We would find out something that we could input into episode six or episode senate predict lose about among the characters that were outside the boundaries of the actual book. We had the veterans themselves saying well. I didn't do that but i did this. And then when we find out about that he did that will holy cow. We hadn't even imagine them and then put it into the later. Episodes was living and breathing spree play process at the same time that was always growing so the excitement of was that it wasn't trapped into a bell jar that we were just trying to cherry pick for wonderful moments. We had an overarching literally. If you will Able to contents and a map of where they had been dot and we were always filling to send with wicked great details that in making a lot more humid at the same time..

Thanks shit talk down another thirty years. According to a twenty. Nineteen report by the alaskan health officials. Sixty eight people in the state were hospitalized for injuries sustained in sixty six bear attacks from the year. Two thousand two thousand seventeen. That means two of those bears. Got more than one dude. That's awesome and ten. People died as a result of bear attacks during that period at a bare. Love it.

I'm really not Now the dude that got rescued the guy in question he was between fifty and or forty and fifty fifty and sixty four forty and fifty years old. He did have a handgun Any had quite a bit of ammunition for when this whole thing. I started but he only had two rounds of ammo left really. So he's just a shitty shot. He's a horrible shod and he hadn't slept in four days running on nothing but pure fear The entire time Yeah the guys. He'd be fucking wreck there. The bear to catch the bear is there no. We don't even know that there was a bear really. Maybe this guy's just weird it's possible but they when hopped up on the fire water and wrecked is house is like mayor.

That would have been epic. That would have been a great menges. Just being a guy that gwen is that a fucking bear flying that helicopter. That would be the. I've never been stuck like i had a.

But no no no going toward until for when you're going through phibbs exchange at the big hill you go down. I followed by a coyote. 'cause i saw coyote and then i just saw these yellow is in the bushes like everywhere i went it was going with and i thought i was going to get attacked by this coyote. It would sucked. Like i couldn't imagine being pursued for four days by something eighty times that big and this guy it was a little coyote is probably mediated. They don't usually attack. They're tiny and weak and starving. They attack a little things but a bear a big angry hungry for jesus christ. I even like i scared of spiders. Like fuck again. I just.

He nobody know they're not releasing his name whatsoever cuz I guess he just doesn't want to be known. Um, but he was up in case. It's the Berlin man. It's the Pearl in. He got rid of his age and his cancer, then he got killed by a bear, it's Leading Edge Plus Doodles. So he was up at this little small and I mean fucking tiny mining camp about forty miles outside of New Jersey. Alaska in the middle of what country? Oh, dear country, their country. They have no idea how we got out to this location cuz there's no vehicle close. Anywhere else have. No idea how we got in there. There's no vehicle there. So like he didn't take like an ATV or anything to get there, there's no boat. He doesn't have a canoe. So there's there's fucking nothing. There's no evidence that the bear didn't hide his vehicle know. There's, there's no evidence of that yet, I'm sure that will come out. So, basically, what happened, was this dudes out there and walk? The one night he was out there on with the fuck? Was it on July 12th? And he, and so there's three sort of buildings on this site.

"About america and the way in which we live up to our ideals we achieve great things and i think that's a very wonderful story to tell and it's a very necessary story to tell but it's also true that a lot of these movies by and large tell stories about white heroes that brings us to the conversation. Eric duggan's waded into when he reacted to an essay published in the new york. Times by tom hanks about race history and the stories that hollywood puts on screen one of the reasons why you publish a guest essay in the new york. Times is to start a conversation if you wanna start a conversation. Then you've got to be prepared to have that conversation but this is what the conversation became on fox news for npr and perpetual protesters. No matter what. Tom hanks do it does. It will never be enough. We'll explain in this sunday. Bonus episode and talked to eric. Duggan's about how hollywood reckons with its own power. Its consider this from. Npr is cornish. It's sunday june twentieth. This message comes from npr sponsor. Why zandt a one to one tutoring alternative to online classes where you can learn face to face online.

That's driving extreme gun rights activism in more. I'm chris axel. I'm lisa hagen was wherever you get your podcasts. It's consider this from npr. This whole thing started with an essay. Tom hanks published in the new york times earlier this month. And we've got linked to it in our episode notes. If you wanna pause go check it out and come back. But also i'm it up here. The essay was called. You should learn the truth about the toll. So race massacre nasa. Hanks made the case for a more widespread teaching american history. Involving black americans especially of events like the tulsa race massacre. You know what tom hanks did. Was he kind of outlined a problem. That america's history books and hollywood have often avoided or downplayed stories about black people that. Reveal the brutality of how we been oppressed in this country. This inspired npr critic. Eric diggins to write a response will link to that column in our episode notes as well. Eric said that while he's a huge fan of his work and appreciates. The actor's words people in hollywood as powerful as tom hanks well and says they could wield that power to make the change. They often advocate for after all hangs isn't just an actor. He's also a writer director and producer. Eric deg says that hangs has power and influence over. What kinds of stories. Hollywood tells no for one guy from npr. He isn't doing enough to make the world a better place. Turns out that the internet and if you other folks did not have a lot of appreciation for the nuance in eric's argument. I hope he comes out swinging. I hope he goes. Somebody asked hangs hasn't responded to eric's piece as of when we're recording this anyway. I mean if there's any celebrity who might engage in this conversation. I think it would be him so you know. I hope. Maybe he does. Reach in the meantime. Eric and i continue the about. What kind of power. Hollywood a listers like tom. Hanks really have and how they use it. Here's our chat. I think is great that tom hanks published this essay because in part it was pushing back on these people who are insisting that troubling racial incidents shouldn't be taught in schools You know he. He was making the point that the tulsa race massacre in particular The fact that people didn't know about until relatively recently Was a shame and it happened because people didn't talk about it in history classes. Maybe because they were afraid of upsetting You know some people who wanna believe in that exalted american story So all of that is great. And i'm glad he wrote that column but in doing that he also sort of opened the door and it's sort of like well now we gotta talk about the full implications of what you just said. But he's not the screenwriter. he's not the director. He's not the studio guy. Green-lighting things i mean when you look back at films like forrest. Gump burr philadelphia. How would taking a different approach. Change things. like what could Ah tom hanks have done well. First of all He has served as executive producer For a lot of films and mini series that are rooted in history including band of brothers pacific. John adams on hbo. He didn't appear in any of those but he was an executive producer. So he does have that kind of influence. But if you think about A movie like Forrest gump for example If a person of color for women of color had been cast as his love interest in that film as ginny Making that character black would have required telling a story that included what it was like to be black through all of those episodes in history that she lived through with forrest. Gump and it would have done exactly what tom hanks has talked about in his own essay. Bringing more light to the black experience as it connects to american history. I mean tom. Hanks has talked about teachers in his essay but in a lot ways he's a teacher he's relating stories about what history manners in america and what doesn't in his work and all his do is make different choices and he could expand that focus. I want to get into that more but first. Let's talk about his career because you're right. This is the guy who's been captain phillips. Or you know the main character in philadelphia or forrest gump which is literally like a tour through american history And you call these These roles basically the stories of american white men doing the right thing. What do you mean by that. Well we these stories that are considered americana now valiant soldiers in world war two. You know astronauts who are courageous. I'm not denigrating those things. Those are great stories. That absolutely need to be told but when your goal is to create this story that buttresses america's feelings about itself and about the superiority of its values in about You know how we're built on the actions of these. These wonderful people doing the right thing. Then it's harder to say. Hey wait a minute. You know. There were also moments during world war. Two were black. Soldiers didn't get treated well. Hey there were also moments. During the space race were black. People were not allowed to be. Part of the engineering programs are not allowed to be astronauts. And so once you decide you're going to focus on those heroics stories. It makes it much harder to talk about the realities of black people and other non white people faced in those circumstances and he has much admits that in his essay but he also played a lot of those roles so so i just thought it was surprising that he didn't sort of talk about that. I was only half joking about everyone. Saying you're trying to cancel to boxes. Published a story online in one of their pundits. I think it's joe concha disgusted on air right and you. Also i was watching you. Fend off some of the criticism on twitter rate.

The Eddie Murphy Hall of Fame
"Are joined by van leith in the cost of higher learning and eddie murphy expert to break down the career. One of the greats. What what i what. I what i was going on with guys hanging in there excited to talk about eddie. We're gonna do a hall of fame here so for the folks out there who have never heard hall of fame episode very briefly. Break down what we do on these episodes. We have built halls of fame for tom. Hanks roger deakins. Nancy meyers toshiro buffoon. A monster movies and most recently george clooney. So it's time for eddie. What we doing we build. A hall is ten films from a career. No more no less. He's got forty movies so we got a lot to talk about here. I'm going to start with this. Amanda eddie murphy. What do you think. I think of multiple eddie. Murphy's i think of a lot of characters all in one movie. This is going to be interesting van. I'm really excited to talk to you about all of these because i've been listening to unsurprisingly. There are a lot of rewatch ables movies. Eddie murphy movies on rewatch bulls and i was listening to some of them in. You're on several of them. And you know i had that podcast thing where you want to respond to the person but you know it's a podcast so now you're here and it's a privilege to get to talk to you but for me eddie murphy is a little bit of. It's a generational cork for me. Because i am just. I think a little bit more than both of you and so i became kind of like movie aware movie sentient like mid nineties. Nine hundred ninety five nine hundred ninety six. And i've done a lot of catch up but if you become aware of movies in the mid nineties that means that the first eddie murphy. You get the nutty professor and then milan. And then shrek. I saw shrek in theaters. Not above it. So you know at that point. He's like the elder statesmen of comedy super established. Like i knew the beverly hills cop steam song and dance to it while before i saw it but kind of understanding him as like family eddie murphy and then catching up on everything else. Interesting chronological or not chronological murphy. Experience for me. Then you want to do your history with eddie. I know you are been living with him for a long time. Yes i have been So i hambur what year this was and i don't wanna insult my parents. Every time i mentioned my parents. I get some minor detail wrong and then i have to hear about it into along to our phone call. Your parents listen airpods today. Let's no your show's. I wish they wouldn't but that's nice. Yeah i wish they would but they My father was taking me to see a movie. We were all going to the movies but this time we were breaking it off like my father was taking me to see one of the superman movies. It's either three or four and my sister. My grandmother my mother went to see beverly hills cop two and this was my first experience with with with seeing people so jazz to see a movie because they went this way. Like we went to the superman franchise. I fell off by that point so we went this way and they go this way when they go this way. They're all of these people over there. And i'm like daddy i wanna go over here and he's i know that's too old for you. We're gonna go watch superman. And i say that because that's the moment that i actually became movie sentient by. That's the start of it. That's like what are these people into. Before that i can't tell you when i i kind of became aware of eddie murphy. Because he's like michael jackson in the sense that there was never a time. I wasn't aware of him. I was born in nineteen eighty so by the time. I start getting Information downloaded into me eddie. Murphy's a part of that he's like a part of that thing but the first time. I realized that this guy isn't just a do that. I see on tv or the guy that that he is. The biggest thing in the world is what i saw. People excited to go for it felt. So that's my that's my memory of him and it's not even necessarily what you might call one of his mega classics like beverly hills. Cop two was the event that you can remember that says a lot. And that's eighty seven net says a lot about where we were with. Eddie he was kind of in the middle of i. There are very few movie star runs in the history of movies like the one he had in the eighties. The rise to fame which starts on. Tv i guess tom hanks Robin williams maybe In terms of just successful movies maybe will in there but those movies weren't weren't quite the same as well. what is there were talking about. It's really remarkable when you think about it. There's no like they're not like high concepts with willa was like he needed to be punching an alien in the face to get to this level and like eddie movies are just like it's especially in the eighty s. Eddie is just running around doing stuff. That's that is what this movie is. He's he's being harassed whether he's a cop or he's a convict fresh outta jail or if he's a guy off the street who gets taken into financial institution like it's just it's entirely built around his persona and his sense of humor which is is unusual. We don't see that very much. These
Snubs and surprises from this year's Golden Globe nominations
"The globe. Nominations happened and boy. They'd seemed a mess. How do you feel hi. How are you feeling about words and being back. I guess i'm glad to have award season back though isn't it. We can discuss specific to these nominations. I feel a little bit like charlie brown with the football because every year we talk about make fun of the hollywood foreign press association. And let's be clear we're going to continue to make fun of them. They are traditionally. It's a small group of international journalists. Who do not have a lot of renown really know outside of the fact that they are in this mysterious priests small group of people. They really like celebrities or their definition of another other thing. We'll discuss and their star fuckers and they give nominations to people they want in a room rather than a merit or at least our interpretation of merit. It seems like to win an award. You just have to go to as many parties as possible and then think the association from the stage. We know that there are always bad. Choices always mysterious traces. We're always like what is going on. Who are these people. Why do we do this. But i would say even for the hollywood foreign press association and even for a film here had some challenges aka pandemic theaters being close and far fewer films released unusual. These are real embarrassing. And i woke up just being like. Are you serious. We have to do this again. Like come on yeah i. It's hard to know we've gone through looking glass or not some of these. I think we're fairly standard and expected in their plenty of movies that i'm sure we'll be talking about when we get to the oscar nominations in a couple months but there were a handful of nominations. What what. I will generously called the surprises. That just took my breath away. That i i think even in my wildest dreams i could not have imagined the fbi concocting so. Let's just talk about them because this award show is happening really soon. It's february twenty eight. It's gonna be hosted by. Amy poehler and tina fey. It's going to be on nbc. And so we're going to actually having awards season to cover for real for real. I think we have to start with the jared leto nomination for the little things. This is probably the single biggest. W t.f of this collection and it's funny because when we talked about the little things on the show last week i think we both walked away from the little things thinking. Jared leto is pretty entertaining in it. And maybe rising to the challenge of this camp script and that being said i. I never considered him. A worthy report surprised to see this nomination. I enjoyed watching him in the little things in the context of the little things which was not a film that worked at all and so at least someone was doing something you know and i was talking with friends about it. There's like a really a nice like vintage. This is bad feeling to the little things that i found pretty comforting. You know it's like it's not like someone just made a twitter thread into a movie on an iphone and like someone wrote a script and they tried to do this old ninety staying. And then jared leto is doing the weird villain and having too much fun with it. It's like i know what's happening here even if it's not working and and i'm glad to have it back. I do not know that it needed to rise to the level of golden globes ovation especially because the golden globes supporting category does not differentiate between drama and comedy in some of the comedy. Nominations things get wild. But that's because you're kind of you're filling it out there some extra slots. A lot of people didn't get nominated in supporting actor. Jared leto like weird joke of serial killer. I think he's right. Can we talk about that for a second. This is dangerous rabbit hole to go down. I have no idea. The truth is. I don't know i think you're meant to believe that he did. Not if you haven't seen this movie. Sorry for spoiling it for you. It's unspoiled in many ways because it has an ambiguous ending of sword. I- i- i- jared. Leto obviously is has won an academy award. He is a very famous person has been celebrated. He's also like kind of a joke. You know like. I really enjoy him as a performer. A famous person. But he's kind of a joke. I mean he's he so Has all of the pretensions. And absurdity of the method actor who sort of you know pulling pranks on his cast members by trying to get into character and so outside and so masking his beauty all the time with these ridiculous roles you know like in the little things that character has like a is is fat and walks with a limp and why it's just pure actually affect nation and the role is actually affectation and the asia was impressed by that or impressed. By the idea of having jared sit in on their award show. But jared. Leto is not tom hanks. For example someone who did not get knocked out.
Economics In Space
"The life of an astronaut. It sounds so awesome so adventurous astronaut. Doug wheelock says though most of the time it's actually pretty routine regimented. You wake up have breakfast do a bunch of scientific experiments and then you eat lunch. Then more experiments exercise dinner and go to sleep and of course there are no shops or movie theaters are banks or anything like that. So the economy aboard the international space station is all about trade. The interesting thing is with food. Of course the russians food supply is much different than our food supply. The russians is. Doug really loved the us deserts which were like brownies and cakes. And he's freeze dried packets and the american astronauts really loved the russian soups. Apparently the borscht is excellent. Excellent is a relative term. Of course doug says that aboard the space station. Most of the food is actually pretty bland. But every three months a big event would happen. Doug and his crew would get a shipment from earth and the resupply missions were a big deal remember. It costs hundreds of millions of dollars to send a shuttle to the space station. So when those shipments actually came says doug it was a very special moment and in those shipments would be like personal items letters from home loved ones. Yeah who cares. There was also this precious commodity just before they closed the hatch on the launch pad. They would throw like a bag of fresh fruit like oranges. Lemons apples vegetables as well aboard the space station. Duck says produce was like platinum. Yeah and when the shipments would right he says everybody would get together and the excitement was electric. We'd all get in the the node one. Which is our kitchen area and flowed all the fruit and vegetables. Okay so it's like christmas morning. But doug says everybody would only get one or two pieces of produce. Just wasn't that much of it and so here's where the trade comes in. Doug knew that the russians loved onions. They're great for flavoring food but doug loved fruit above everything else at. I'd say like mad. I would take an orange over this onion any day. You know fyodor. Your chicken was mike. Commander said hey fyodor What a trade an onion for do of a like an extra orangey goes all. You don't want your onion douglas's that orange trade legendary in his mind still because for doug that orange was not just a snack. It was a connection to earth. It was like his companion was funny. I had i at one point. I kind of laughed. Because i i felt like tom. Hanks and castaway with wilson. The volleyball hung onto like one orange for like it seemed like probably three weeks at a became sort of by crewmate. Of course the space station economy was not just about food though services. Were also a big part of it and different people aboard. The space station had different things. They could contribute because they had such different backgrounds. There were scientists engineers pilots so skill sets seriously skill sets became part of our commerce as well. Dug for instance has an engineering background and he says for him one of his least favorite parts of life aboard the space station. Where all the scientific experiments they had to do. Whatever their background. This was just part of what they did. Every day and the space station would typically be running more than a hundred experiments at any given moment scientific research about food plants medicines. It's just a full day and it's also part of the mission of the space station. But for doug honestly it was kind of a slog sometimes the way out of it economics doug discovered this a couple of weeks in his mission when one of the scientists aboard. The space station told him that there was a big problem she said. Hey the party's broken. I mean that does sound like a big problem. I feel panicked at least not what you wanna hear aboard a space station. That's for sure. No but doug background was in engineering. So he understands systems and he says fixing things comes really naturally to him and the scientists. This woman named shannon knew this about doug shannon looked at me. She said if you fix the party. I'll do all of your science for the rest of the day and i'm thinking that is a deal and a half. I'll take that deal. So i got my by tool bill called houston and said you know houston. We have a problem. The party's broken. Doug says actually the toilet broke quite a bit and whenever it happened whenever the toilet broke doug's economic value pretty much shot to infinity. I figured out that if you're out in space and you can fix the potty you're like lord of the universe but the real commodity on the space station's as doug was earth itself because he says when you see the whole planet against this backdrop of outerspace every day it just changes the way that you value things it just this raging ball of life in this vast desert of darkness. You know that takes root like very very quickly and it's like wow there's my planet everything ever known you know every word ever spoken. You know everybody. I've ever loved is down there and i'm not there and so that's when it really kind of strikes. You is When i talk to students and young children we talk about our favorite planet and things and i said pluto was my favorite planet. I said but then i went to space and now earth is my favorite planet. Thanks says when you're in space you start to crave all things earth and human evidence of life becomes

News of the World Movie review
"Probably safe to say the discourse on that one has had its moment in the film twitter bubble but we have not had a chance to weigh in yet on the show. So we're going to get to wonder woman nineteen eighty-four a bit later. I though another christmas day released that makes its on-demand debut this weekend. It's news of the world directed by paul greengrass and starring. Tom hanks news of the world is adapted from the two thousand sixteen novel by paulette gyles. Let's hear some of the trailer. Gentlemen my name is captain jefferson kyle kit tonight debris the news from across this great world of ours so they pay you to tell story. I never heard that is the thing a main could do not a rich man. Keep patients that you can see took part. Stop shop talk. You understand. English call says your name. Is joanna liam burger in the took you when they attack your family. Six years prior her mother father and sister over. Well i passed. It is a strange world. Michael when a tom hanks western directed by paul greengrass. Who worked with hangs on captain phillips after directing three of the jason. Bourne films gets lost in the shuffle. But that's pretty much what's happened with news of the world. There's been little talk of it since it did open in theaters. Some theaters on christmas day. It does come to streaming services as we mentioned this weekend set. Shortly after the civil war of the movie stars hanks as jefferson kid. A printer who lost his business in the war and now travels from town to town. Reading newspapers allowed to gathered pain audiences on his journey. He comes across a young german girl. Played by helena's zongol. Who was kidnapped as a baby by akilah tribe and rescued years later by union. Soldiers kid is charged with returning her to her surviving relatives but she'd rather returned to the kiawah the only family she's ever known that's the central narrative.

Tom Hanks' is hopeful that big movies will save movie theaters
"Hanks is hopeful that Marvel Comics and other large franchises will save movie theaters. In a recent interview about his out new movie that he's got coming out. He acknowledged that there was a change coming to movie theaters that was inevitable, But he believes that movie theaters will still exist. When he was asked that very question, he said, Absolutely. They will on a big event. Big event. Motion Pictures are going to rule the day of cinemas. Now. He added that again, like I said earlier, this is all important. It's very important that we get other franchises like Marvel. Things like that to get on board of on Lee releasing movies in theaters to try to keep that patrol. Yeah, I know. Some people are worried about that right now. People are gonna be so excited about going back to the movies. We're going to see a resurgent of movie events where people are dressing up in costumes. I love that kind of stuff, right? I hope so as well like there because we It was a destination programming was here and I hope that we get back to that again because You know, it's all fine watching it at home, and some people have some really great home theaters. But there's something about that experience that I missed two. I do, and there's something like if you are bothered by people like because the only thing I don't like about Movie theaters are other people. They're I mean, they're the ones that hurt you. I've gone off on people before, as I've expressed on the show, But, you know, I think it's about the time of day you choose to go buried your followed by this. Do not go to Friday night opening of a movie, right? You're gonna get all the annoying people with it's packed, so just go on a Tuesday night when no one's there different is a very broad definition. Some people are just so bad. I'm theater is like, sure. Baird up ahead of new people are art. Yeah, I hope the one thing they stick around with and I know they were doing this a little bit beforehand is some of these retro movies like I was actually going. I want to see back to the future, all of them. I saw grease. I saw all these great movies and nobody was in the theater wearing my mask, of course, but I hope they keep some retro movies in there every once in a while, and I hope that some of our smaller second run theaters do have things so support your new home cinema grills your parkway theaters. All right, We have a chance when you have a chance. Make sure you support them as well.
"tom hanks" Discussed on The Archive Project
"Here's what I would do all right. Well we'll we'll take Oregon uh-huh I won't say Winfrey Hanks because then my job as her running running mate would be to stand just off to the right behind her and stare at doering Lee at the back of her head. The that seems to be what vice presidential candidates always end up doing and that job. I can handle this question about your harmless vice. What is your very favorite typewriter? And why and just to give you some context. You have about one hundred agency about two hundred and fifty some of them are I know I know I plan to be buried with them. We're we're waiting to give them away. Nobody beginning to give them away to. But I and I'm not a sucker you know somebody says hey. I hear you're giving away typewriters. I'd like let me one.

But as one of the reasons people go into into the business there is there is a there is a countenance that I think that any artis this carries and it doesn't necessarily matter what the discipline is that they're working in that countenance remains and that is some combination of who they are secretly secretly who they are externally by way of the entire body of work and what it is meant to people that has seen it by and large and sometimes it can be viewed as the negative aspects of pitching holding right. Like you'll never do never be anything other than a light comedian or you never be anything anything other than a dark heavy. You'll never once vincent price played as bad guy. He was always Vincent Price. The bad guy there and well you can look at that that in a negative form or you can look at it as quite liberating because then every time you take a job every time you drawn to something to say yes to You get to secretly expand the level of what that countenances longer just a color on the rainbow.

I was never the only thing that a intimidated about this was the actual work load the actual process assess the solitary job of writing. Something that you and only you can determine his should go on but the nature of of of the countenance of all the stories always did come back to I think this which also governs the vast majority of choices. I make in my day job and that is I'm not interested in the standard antagonised protagonist narrative. I don't I'M NOT I. Don't I enjoy movies where someone says before I kill you Mr Bond. Perhaps you'd like a tour of my installation. I don't I don't those things are fund their oblast or ultra ultra. Cam comes down from his plan. He wants to enslave the earth and turn us all into food.

It's the second best lucky can have is that you meet an obstacle that slows. You down just for a while but then you get around it and I think that is that translates from what I do for what I've done for a living since I was twenty one to what I started when I was sixty one or even then I think I think it's. It's they're even before that I wrote a a wonderful interview that you did when you're talking about growing up and realizing the essential difference difference between you and your father.

Thank you for listening. Today's episode meet newer tasks bestselling author. Gavin Edwards focus on his two books that explore the celebrity lives and careers of Tom Hanks and Bill Murray is true. That Tom Hanks is nice guy. But has Gavin notes Hank sees summation as boring and Hank's life and career the complexity enrichment to prove it is also beloved as a star of the Dick's cream. If Hanks is the nice guy, Bill Maury is the guy everyone wants to crash their party, but he has a dark side to he's everywhere. He's random is often not on time for work and even his lawyers and agents have trouble reaching he's a ghostbuster. Are you gonna call right? We start with the section from the world. According to Tom Hanks and title, the ten commandments Tom Hanks, we spent half the show and Tom's world and the other half and bills the ten commandments of Tom Hanks, breaking news shocker, Tom Hanks. Didn't always have a sunny. Upbeat outlook on the world. Check out his POV circa one thousand nine hundred five I'm a pessimist, pure and simple. He said, I guess it's based on experience on a certain amount of wisdom that you acquire by the school of hard knocks. I always expect everything to stink the high heaven that way you don't get disappointed fast forward sixteen years and ask Hanks, he's an optimist shamelessly. So this is answer. Let's late. That's very good things happen to Tom. Hanks those intervening years not only did is up and down movie career go up and then up and then up some more. He went from the throws of miserable divorce to domestic bliss, but for most people pessimism isn't easily dislodged. No matter how much good news comes along and a psychological study lottery winners and people who are rendered paraplegic by car crashes proved to be roughly as happy as one another the likely culprit is heat on adaptation me that human beings will get used to just about anything and soon returned their usual baseline level, daily joy and really. Serie? Tom Hanks, however, given overwhelming affirmation life was going. Well, learn to embrace the good news asked. He was happy. He replied, it's a choice. I make. Yes. Astonished by how joy had overtaken him. He said, I apologize to my friends and family because I say it all the time. But if you told me in nineteen sixty six when he was ten years old IBM actor and make movies. I would have thought that you were insane. If you told me in nineteen sixty six I'd be married and have four great kids. I could never have imagined. It the personal is the political in many ways, including temperament hangs continued. I look at the United States of America now underneath the stars and stripes banner and all the hokey stuff that goes along with it. And despite the problems, we have and the constant strife we go through. I think we are undeniably at a better place as a country as a people than we've ever been it's because of who we are. Life is complicated. Lasts are simultaneously half. Full and half empty optimists. And pessimists will always have a wide range of evidence that can reinforce either point of view weeks after hang said that terrorists hijacked, four planes and crashed them into the Pentagon and the World Trade Center, killing thousands of people the strife in the USA showed no signs of reducing in good times and bad. If you ask Tom Hanks to summarize philosophy. This is how he doesn't life is one thing after another. Sometimes he says that with exasperation like at the end of bad day when a woman elevator asked him how it felt to be on top of the world. And he replied, luckily life is just one damn thing. After another no matter where you live. Sometimes he says as an expression of joy like when he summarizes marriage to read a Wilson thus. We knew it was going to be one damn thing after another. But there were all good damn things. But most often hang says as. Knowledgeable of the vicissitudes and cross-currents of human existence. He describes life as something. Good jammed right next to something bad. That's followed by something. Good. That's followed by two things that are bad as fall by seven things that are good. That's all by something. That's bad. It is one damn thing after another which is actually wonderful, and it's constant variety. How does any human being make sense of that constant clamor in chaos which adds up two weeks years and eventually life Hanks figured out what worked for him? And then resolutely applied those principles to his daily existence. He's not descending. The mountain with ten commandments on stone tablets full of interdictions and prohibitions for the rest of the human race. But by steadying, the choices he's made we can learn from his hard won wisdom. These commandments are one of the most admired people in the world has chosen to govern the unruly abundance of his own life following the mall, turn you into Tom Hanks. But if you follow his example, you might find yourself leading better life with more joy, more good news more. Meaning let hangs predict your future. It's still going to be one thing after another some of them so horrible that you weep for all humanity. But then others so magnificent beautiful that you'll say well. I'm gonna keep going because that's possible. This is the New York Times bestselling author of ten books, including the towel Bill Murray and the world according to Tom Hanks is the editor of the beautiful book of exquisite corpses. Edwards post is first book of misheard lyrics, nineteen ninety-five titled skews me while I kissed.
