"I'm looking into stylings. And i'm thinking. Yeah that could quite possibly bay some similar number there across the world. Do you think it has anything to do. With the way i lost. All is positioned A lot of working from harmless movement these days al diet and consumption of processed foods. Oh my goodness yes. You definitely hit the nail on the head. There's two two reasons why. I think that this is so incredibly prevalent and the first is that our fruits and vegetables that we eat. Don't have the same minerals in it now than they did. One hundred years ago so if we were to take an orange now and measure the vitamin c. in there and compare it to an orange from the nineteen fifties. We're gonna see a huge difference in the content so and part of that is because our agricultural are as agricultural processes have changed so drastically over the last hundred years that The soil isn't Mineral rich like it used to be which means. Our foods aren't filled with minerals that they used to be. And then we add compound that with this diet that people eat that so so Devoid of nutrients is so void of minerals. You know people are eating their food from boxes and bags and cans instead of foods from the ground. So this this Poor diet. That's kind of running rampant throughout all the countries throughout the world is really affecting our nutritional health. It's really really been devastating as time goes absolutely absolutely It's people I feel on some levels. People are starting to wake up. There are some people that are connecting our lifestyle choices to their health. But i think there's far more people that are more addicted to sugar. They're addicted to fat and oil and all the bad stuff all the processed food and they're not willing to make the changes they'd rather look for you know their solutions in a pill instead of of really making choices. I recently kind of came to this whole idea that so much of our health comes back to the choices that we make and and when we take full responsibility for our choices it's actually really really really liberating because that means that we can also take full responsibility for our healing. So if if your choices are what caused the issue your choices can also fix the issue. It's it's an interesting topic to touch on. Because i don't believe a lot of people wanna take ownership of their choices The so this people that don't wanna take ownership and then there's the people who don't believe they can take control because all things that have happened in loft style that's walked they mindset all the way they think a little bit very fascinated to say where the industry guys and a harp that. There's a ton point where we all start eating from the ground more and eating more natural ingredients instead of processed foods but we know that when food is designed it's designed and tested to be addictive so this sugar all these fats and stuff..

"Work. And from the John D. And Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation at Mac found daughter work. I'm Jenn White. It's the Friday news round up our guests this week are David Rennie, Beijing Bureau chief for the Economist Here in Washington, D. C. We have Jennifer Williams, co host of the podcast worldly that's produced by box where she's senior foreign editor, and Larry Mado, North America correspondent for the BBC. Alcove. It has now taken the lives of more than 1.6 Million people worldwide. One of the lives lost this week was the prime minister of the Kingdom of S, sweetie. Me formally known as Swaziland. Ambrose. Still, Amini is the first world leader to die of the virus. That, David, What do we know about his death? Well. He's been ill for quite a while. He was in hospital in South Africa, and he's pretty young. As you say he's 52 years old. And when he tested positive for Corona virus in the middle of November, he said he didn't have symptoms that he was feeling well. But then, at the beginning December the government a Vespa teeny, which is an absolute monarchy, but it does have Prime minister and ministers said that he had been moved to a hospital in South Africa to help him recover fast. But then on Sunday, they said that he is in fact died in South Africa. So this is clearly a huge heart. We've had former leaders like president, the former president of France ability. He's got this town who died of complications, but this is the first leader to die in office. And when we look at the global picture of covert infections, what is it looking like? I'm gonna zoom in on some specific areas in a moment, But what are we seeing globally? Well. Africa is an interesting example, because obviously people very worried when the virus first hit Africa because it doesn't have great hospitals in every country, But it's actually done in some ways better than other continents and their various theories about that. One simple fact is that about 60% of the African population is under 25. Just everywhere in the world. Young people seem to do better. A lot of people live outdoors. That's something you've seen, scientists say, is potentially helping in Africa. But actually there have been some what looked like the start of really nasty second wave in places like South Africa, where a lot of young people seem to have celebrated the end of school exams on that's led to a real tick up in cases. And so there's real concern, but clearly the countries that we've been looking at a lot In Europe, Britain, France, You know a whole bunch of countries are really suffering as they go into the winter, hoping that they can keep this just under the level of kind of their health. Cat capacity before the vaccine start really rolling out in the new year, while David mentions France. We know French President Emmanuel Macron tested positive for covert this week. Jennifer, How is he doing? Um, it seems he's doing that fairly. Well, as far as we can tell, you know, you may remember when British Prime Minister Boris Johnson also tested positive at the very beginning, you know of that he the government kind of line was that he was doing great. And then all of a sudden he's in the ICU s O. As far as we know McCrone is is doing okay. He is experiencing symptoms. That's basically how they found out that That he was sick and was tested and tested. Positive. Hey, seems to be continuing to hold, you know, virtual meetings and things like that trying to present you know, the government is still is still working. You know, everything's fine. Nobody panic. The problem beyond the fact that he has it is that In the past week he has had in person meetings with numerous European leaders and officials to the point that so many people are now having to To quarantine it is he truly kind of staggering How many people you know there was an EU summit last week. You know, at that time the you know the leader of Croatia. Leader of Estonia didn't attend because they were either sick or recording teaming on now we have you know, with Macron. He met with all kinds of different leaders. And so what's really concerning beyond just the situation of France is that this could now potentially spread and the impact leaders across Europe and remember this comes at a time. When you know not only is the you trying to work out, you know a major vaccination rollout. But also, you know, in the midst of negotiations on Brexit between the UK and you and McCrone is very much involved in that in the sense of you know, there are lots of issues surrounding fisheries that France is very much involved in So this comes at a really critical time on just the The idea that he was meeting in person with so many people is just kind of staggering. Yes, they probably were Mass. There's some photos showing them. You know, all wearing masks, but at the same time, you know, a ton point. You know, he's in the room with someone for hours and hours in the small room, So you know, I think it really goes to show in some ways. How much is it still is really difficult. Toe even do the basic kind of functions of diplomacy and international governance. When you're trying to meet with leaders, this is something that's very important, but You know, guys, you need to keep it on Zoom for awhile. I'm sorry. Well in the first week of distributing the vaccine, health care workers in the UK gave the first dose to more than 130,000 people. People seeing a glimmer of hope there and the president of the EU announced Thursday that vaccination across the rest of Europe will begin on December 27th. You just give us the coronavirus picture across all of Europe? Well, there's a couple of things we're looking at. We're watching the numbers taking up visits the winter so the UK at the same times they're trying to say this good news about 138,000 vaccinated Now they're still running at about 25,000. New cases a day and London just went into the highest level of lockdowns. That's pubs and restaurants closed. Boris Johnson touch treading a very, very fine line.

"What's going on, Trump making puns left and right. Its terrible Can We talk about spies? Sure. Yeah, let's do it. So ah! I think we did. We didn't espionage podcast years and years ago. I think spies how spies working was itjust spies? Or was it espionage as well? But they go so closely together. That same thing. Yeah. The Soviets were really good at well about really good because who knows how many times it happened? But they had some very effective Moments of turning Americans into double agents. A few notable people over the years a man named Aldrick Ames hey, was A 31 year CIA officer and for about nine years was feeding the Russians or I guess it was the Soviet Union at that time. Highly classified information from the CIA. His big thing it seemed like was outing CIA sources and and stuff like that, like turned KGB agents. Yeah, so I mean, there's all kinds of ways. There are other people that fed documents. We'll get to them in a minute. But he was outing sources. And I think His actions directly led to at least that we know of 10 CIA sources being compromised and killed and then you know, in the hundreds of intelligence operations that he was, he was kind of dropping the diamond and that's I mean, in addition to the like the loss of life As Faras. The intelligence community's concerned when you when you kill somebody like that, you're killing like decades worth of information that the person has walking around in their head and contacts and just general knowledge of how things work. So it's a really big deal. In addition to again, killing somebody, you're wiping out like the institutional memory that they carry with them, too. That's been helping out the other side. Yeah, He is in a medium security prison in Indiana today serving a life sentence, as is Robert Hanson. He's one that is a little more. I mean, he worked up until the think 2001 and they said that his espionage was possibly the worst intelligence disaster in US history. Hey, made about $1.4 million in cash and diamonds over the years, selling classified documents to the KGB, Um, total double agent. Caught in 2001 after the FBI paid seven million bucks to a KGB agent to out him as a mole. Very famous case. Yeah, I remember. That is well. I remember Aldridge Ames to made it really easy on people like he was like spending lavishly, and it was not that well off to begin with, and Just just being very flagrant about it. I feel like Robert Hanson was a little smarter about it. If I'm not mistaken. Yeah, Who's the other guy? There was one other guy that basically was Spilling secrets about her submarine program. I don't I don't know There was a there was a naval captain after World War two Somebody. ST John was that in the sixties That was him. Yeah, yeah. I can't remember his first name, but someone ST John, he was a naval. A naval captain. Yeah, there was a trove of KGB files from an operation from the sixties that basically confirmed he was indeed a Russian spy. Both of the Rosenbergs were indeed Russian spies. Alger Hiss. Who I think went to his grave. Denying that he was a spy was, in fact, a spy for the for the Soviets. So they did have a pretty good success of turning Americans into informants escorted the CIA and the KGB, apparently, but the stuff that they got Was was pretty useful and again. It was not limited to advanced weapon designs, but also industrial technology stuff that we were saying. There's embargoes on this. You can't export this. They still managed to get their hands on this because their contacts Um, that they turned in the us Just just basically anything you would want to keep your your economy humming along. Just from from stealing is how you could. So you could do that. He had the Navy guy. His was ah. He's the one that volunteered himself, basically, but because he wanted money, it's like it all came down to greed. He walked into Ah Oh, yeah, no. I'm talking about John Anthony Walker Jr. That's who I'm talking about. Two. Okay, not ST John, not saying John. It was not a patron saint of hipsters owner. Yeah. John Anthony Walker. Junior is the one that that wanted money and he volunteered by because it's not like he was. Ah, anti American who wanted to see the Communist Party thrive here. It was all motivated by greed. He walked into an embassy in the United States with like a code card or something and said, Hey, I'll sell you this for $3000. And they bought it and he was like, and you know what that went Well, so just put me on the payroll and he got his family involved. He had his AA. I think he tried to get his father involved his daughter, his son, his wife, his son's baseball coach. Everybody Well, a ton point. The Russians basically knew where all of our submarines were at all times, because that's right. Yeah. And his wife was apparently a really bad alcoholic. Probably, you know, in no small part due to this and eventually outed him after he was way too Lucy goosey with who he tried to get involved, like you can't try and get your whole family involved..

"I mean, this wasn't about. You know, the joint Special Operations Command. This wasn't about the military. This was about doing what was right for the country. And if the best chance of getting bin Laden was to go with the agency's paramilitary folks, I was all about it. You know, it's the end of the day. We wanted to get bin Laden and and we didn't want this to be about our egos or our reputation. Everything to that effect. So I made sure that the message was clear. A cz. We were beginning to kind of develop this plan and there was a great and I have told this story I think before that was a great kind of former military young military officer, former military officer that was leading the effort. And a remarkable remarkable professional. Andi had a pretty good plan. The problem was, we knew it was going to be a little bit more complicated than that. A ton point in time director Panetta along with Michael and a number of their senior officers. Call me into his office and said, Hey, look, you know, we think Based on the complexity of this, you guys probably ought to take the lead again. To be honest with you. I was even at that point. I'm a little stand office because I just wanted to be careful that that there wasn't the presumption that we thought we were the pros from Dover and we were going to come in and do this better than anybody. I wanted to make sure that it was a collaborative effort. But you know Leon Panetta, who is incredibly good, precarious, the great team player reached out and said, Look, we think you're the right folks to do this and I'll add one more point. When that Michael can talkto how the senior leaders looked at it, But when we kind of had to break the news to this, this young intelligence officer at the agency Instead of kind of hoping that he had missed the chance. You know, to be part of this great operation. Not he just He did everything that you would expect a great professional to do. He stood up, said, Sir, What can I do to help you? And frankly, in the course of the next several months, he and his team that everything they could to help us Hey, was just remarkable. And the information that he had already gleaned from all the intelligence was exceedingly helpful to our operation. So it was just this great collaborative effort. Andan all started with the agency's outreached us and will be the only thing I would add is a couple of days before we had the conversation with Emma Craven and director Panetta's office. He and I and Jeremy bash or alone in the director's office, and we were talking about the various concepts of operations that we had at that moment. I think there were There were five but really only three because a couple were involving the Pakistanis, and there's no way we're going to go down that road. So we had like three concepts of operations, but they were all complicated. And I remember the conversation you know, eventually evolved around to, you know, the better. Absolutely Best people to do this R J Sock on we never. We never thought for a second about you know, we we should do this because we found him or we should do this because this is going to be a covered action that never crossed our mind. We wanted Teo. To do what would in creating you give us the best chance, Teo get in there and get him and get out without anybody being hurt, And there was no doubt in our mind that that was that was Bill and his team because as bills that they did this multiple times every night in Afghanistan. And we were there with him every night in Afghanistan as they did this, so we knew how good these guys were. And it was a really easy decision to make it the end of the day because it was a covert action. It was sort of the CIA's operation in terms of oversight rights. Or why was that, Michael? Yeah, so the president decided that he wanted us to be a covert action, and he wanted it to be a covered action in case that, you know, Bill's guys went in there. And in Latin wasn't there and Bill's guys got out without being detected by the Pakistanis. We would just deny everything we were denied that has ever happened. So the president wanted it to be a covert action, and because of that, it falls under CIA's authorities. So unusually in this case, the chain of command went from the president to the CIA director Bill as the commander. Secretary defense was not in the chain of command. But I will tell you even though that that director Panetta was was playing the role of the secretary of defense here, you know, we we left all of the operational Planning and decisions to Bill. We knew that that was not our business. The day after the raid when it was public that we had gotten him. We on gathered all our employees in the auditorium. And at one point in in Leon's talk with the employees, he mentioned that he was in charge of this operation, and then he paused. And he said, that's told I wasn't in charge of anything. So you know that's that's the way it played out. And I'm sure that Bill can talk, but I'm sure he kept his his superiors at the Pentagon informed of what he was doing. We're going.

It's been awesome definitely dream come. True. Definitely something I've always been worth always worked for my life and I think. I'm just super stoked to finally have it. Be here. A standing what are what does your day look like right now I mean you guys started team practice I. Believe I think you're taking a break you said for Koga but what has that experience been like? What does it look like to be a college players a freshman right now for you? We're getting accurate right away. We're trying to get through all this cove and stuff as soon as possible in trying to get into team team practice and stuff like that as soon as possible. So trying to get through individual workouts and start up our team practices. Do they have you mixed in with the upperclassmen or are you basically just teamed up with all the incoming freshmen right now? We're all teamed up right now usually a mix of freshman, freshman sophomores, juniors, and seniors all mixed into different individual groups right now. Awesome Awesome real quick. So the nerves, the elements of of being in these first practices as a college player, you know what's that been like? You feel like you're prepared for it or is it a little bit overwhelming for you? I feel like I came in as prepared as possible I. Think there is a few things that definitely have changed when I got here think that it's given me more of the opportunity to. Grow as a player as a person as soon as I got here I. Think I had to find myself more as an adult. Effect that's been a big part of coming in. Time Management Challenge Toni is Nature Ossetia's time time management challenge at all she got managing your time and It all fits of you know actually my first week I'm it was it was tough getting used to it, but I found a group of things and Found a way to get extra time to lift again after workouts and gets the cages later in the day to work on my fine tuning as well. Awesome. So take us through. So Tony just listeners now Tony's. Former drowsy drowsy national team players in MVP. You was a news, a high character guys player faith. They'll just a little bit about your faith how that plays a role in you. Become today as a scholarship player. Man It's meant everything to me. All. My faith in God and my family. Just game a think. Putting my faith through God than. things will fall into place. That allows you to have some faith. You don't have to carry the load yourself. You can pass it off and say, thank you Lord deal, and that's awesome. Tells about your process of the recruiting process for you did you have other options? How did you choose K.? You know these kids a lot of people listening parents in in players not there's a lot of them that are not committed. So Chelsea about your journey. And how you chose k. you and maybe some things that you. You'd be passed down needs to hate me about you different. Man It was. A wild but. Wild crazy but funders journey, I'll tell you that It was probably one of the craziest times in my life, but also one of the most rewarding I think that by trusting God in that process it, it helped a ton. Points we're taught me pretty down but. It ended up being really. Really cool experience for me and my family. Can you explain that a little bit? Did you tell me? You're talking about? You know it's like a roller coaster ride your obviously elite player. Did you play in the area codes. I, did yesterday the area killed players, scholarship player playing the of the big twelve right? You're planning a top conference, your narrow permits, you one of the top players in the country and it was still a difficult challenge for you. Yes sir. I think. It's just A. It's a type of situation where something's happened to other players with different tools. Whereas other guys have to work or it and they have to in front of the right, is it just sometimes? It happens sometimes, it doesn't own. I think that's where baseball and all-sports you have to be that grinder and I think I'd take I'd take that as who I am and I like to. Call Myself Greiner and I worked for what I need and I worked for what I have so. That's been right. So listeners the listeners out there. What is a piece something? You can tell limited vice because your journey was a challenge in it sounds like you persevered and there was times when you felt like, maybe hey, when's is gonNA happen and. And then it does happen. So so what's something? Maybe you do different something piece revised should get the guys out there they're not. My advice to you guys is. Take your time. Let it all happen. Don't try to make rushing to something that isn't the right fit or is in what you're looking for. I think that..

You're supposed to be a cool kid and Tim Conway had all those Dorf videos so all I know is both of these guys are being totally wasted in this movie? Absolutely yeah. And even like the trailer has like a role of a lifetime Gary. Oldman He doesn't really do much in this movie. They must have been talking about the director's cut.

"Yeah. I would say this, but I don't agree with this now. It's kind of like getting a sandwich and you wanting to cut the crusts off depends on certain pre people, whether it's like, oh, they didn't affect me. It's like I don't like the crust. Yeah. Joining the final floor you can have a PB and PB and jelly sandwich, but jammed you also jelly on both sides. I I will will also say since since you you said, said right? much much. I thought it was actually to not saturate enough. Okay. So dusty is, I mean like a cave. Let's give it a break, right? Died and came back to life was like, okay. Now it's gonna be fully. It's the same same carpet. Yeah. It's the same. Saturated carpet, tassels where you live those to be like gold. You look like a marvel. For me. I was like, my, my house is just I have carpets everywhere. And so over time. Betas dole copay. Purpose. Anyway, you started interviewing. All right. All right. Well, no, I was gonna say, I, I was gonna jump on mine, my qualms here. My, my biggest qualm was actually the mixing of the songs. I did not like the modern updates like Josh, I'm a musical theater guy. And I'm not someone who needs that I guess, I don't need the house beat underneath friend, like me. Yeah. For me that took away from it. That for me. That didn't serve the story because it was like it's and it's a fine line to walk, right? Like there's times where modernizing music in a classical setting can work. It's like nights tale. Does it because they fully commit to like, singing, we, we will rock you in the sense of this is how they would feel in that time they wouldn't sing the song. But this song evokes, the same emotion. Right. But in this case, it felt weird to me and it happened in one jump, and it happened in one of their song to be in this setting of Agra by where everyone has words and then you hear like. I'm just like I for me. It, it rips me out of the story, then I'm suddenly listening to the radio. Just it took away from the stories for me from the songs to me, a feel like that just felt like it was them. Doctoring you something, but also, well, not just like me. It happened in one jump it happened in song had like not a house, but it had a big bass beat underneath it. That was very clearly like digital beats interesting. And it for me that hurt the production. It's the same reason I didn't like great, showman thing is I love the greatest showman songs. I've seen the rehearsal videos, I cry when I watch. What's the what's their main song? This is me this, I like tear up and cry. But then I hear the overproduced like auto tune shit. And I it's for me it's like it hurts. It hurts me hurts me to hear this. I know. I know it does because I liked the songs, and I love the performances so much. But to hear you're taking the select, I would rather them, not auto, tune Will Smith or to Naomi Scott and just let them sing passionately and hit hit notes here in a tangent. Did you hear him sing seeing friend like me? And on Falun no was a great, so it's really cool because like so friendly me the original was like very swing. Right. Swing. Yes, he yeah. He turned into like arm be. Yeah. And so he's like done done it. That, okay. On the table. Right. I'm sorry. Everyone home was number one rule. Well, All all right. right. Gray area. Yes. So I was like, oh, I saw that before I watched the movie, I'll, I could be into, if he's gonna just do you watch that when I get really, really mean on that one of those Jimmy's? That's a great like I mean that's kind of an overall. That's like what your preferences, because we're in two thousand nineteen and the big preference of music right now is kind of a hip hop. Dan, I don't know. And it takes you and I probably almost pretty much like the same kind of music if you listen to old music, if you listen to maybe just getting old. But I feel like I feel, I just feel like you lose a humanity of it. And that's and then people will argue the reverse like what I learned in audio school in terms of like hip, hop versus like folk music is it's like they're both trying to capture some people it's back to them. And so it's like oh yeah. A hundred. So it it's so interesting to, to hear something that we knew in love, and then put a house beat under it, and you like. Yeah. It's not even it's the setting to like, I'm just a musical theater guy like give me a big straw. That's all I need. I don't anything fancy. I mean, orchestra musical and someone singing on top. And I'm fucking happy camper yet. I can't stand the digital beats Agra that was just for me. Too far. That was a big quantum on how he was treated in the film. I got tired of him always just happening to be listening. I'd like a character. He's a device. So, and he's probably one of my favorite characters in the original, I want was Gilbert, Godfrey reprisal. Here's the thing. You, you hire someone as talented as Allen to dick, and you let him say two words at a time, and you let him say, like six words in the whole film. And to me, it felt weird to like have them market that, like we hired onto dick. We're going to put his name on all the posters. Can you find a vehicle? Until after the cash. Away like this the way that yoga was reading, though. I just going back again to our killer bus up so book Iago. Yeah. Yes. Kill this giant bird, but it was it was way to plot device in for me. And I wanted more like I one hundred percent so Jaffar kicks that guy in the well, and then it's just Hemion go hundred percent wanted him to start. Speaking didn't have to be like crazy smart. If he only spoke around far right not around. Anyone thought he'd never leave? Yeah. I don't even Allen to it of come up with something beautiful. He's probably one of the most versatile actors that is a huge missed opportunity. Yeah. Shouts you. The other thing my last second Quam my last Quam was yours. I like the actor who played? And I think he captured that look in that. What's the word? I'm looking for kind of like childlike wonder charm. Yeah. Yeah. But I don't there there came a part, part way through the film how he was written. How he was talking to Jeannie. And I just stopped caring about him. And when he kicked him in the ocean, I was kind of, like, okay, I don't go back to jasmine. I wanna I wanna draw jasmine gets the lamp, and we have a whole new, I wanna draw on this factor because it kind of reminds me a little bit of. It's not the same thing. But, like which is am bats in tissues. Am difference after a change. Yeah. And so once Aladdin gets the genie he's kind of stops being into your point. We're talking about he kind of stops being. Oh, yeah. I've seen Agrippa. It's oh yeah. That's like that. Silk is from Bob law from far away. So you must be like the handmaiden yet. He's still smart. He's not an I'll say this in the entire movie. He is not the animated movies Aladdin where he can sly. Yeah. Well he nobody is he's talking. He's smart. He's. He's got fast hands. He can think on his feet. Like the way he talks to the merchant when jasmine steals from him is super fucking quick, the way he dodges all the guards throughout all of one jump in how confident and cool and collected. He is for the whole thing, makes sense. So to me, the change when he's in the palace and like he can't think on his feet all the sudden and like I get it's a different situation. But even in the animated version, they play with that a little bit where he's like they ask him questions. And he goes, oh, yeah, well, it's very far from here. You've never heard of it. I wanted I guess I wanted more stick to the character in the beginning of the film, not like like it felt like too much compound his life. More I feel you definitely feel it a lot. But it was mostly. It was mostly on the lie of hand. It was that was having him be his whole character showing that he has this massive character flaw goes to him having to like be victim of circumstance. The line this one situation. Right. Exactly that full sets exactly what I felt, and it's to Tom's one of tons. Points that whole jam scene felt like a lot of just baths for the apparently that's impo. They improv that felt like well, we'll Smith and no matter where. Improvement. I would say this a battle your your rewrite. I like my rewrite. I would have done is the moment where Jaffar pulls the thing out of the pocket. Yeah. Which when alleged that's Princess. Oh, shoot drive that a little bit more when they're on the beach with jeans, like we'll just be yourself. I can't. She's a Princess. You didn't have any problem talking to before. And then you show that so it has a little bit more of like the making the jump like you talk just fine. He knew she was a prince. But now but they didn't drive like now that she's a Princess now he has a problem talking her. Confidence problem point home to be just suddenly he lost his ability to think on his feet. Just she's a Princess. She lied to me. That was it. Yeah. And then tricks the gene, like he's a smart dude. I think in the moment and, and come up with shit. And so, like Janice, hard Jeff his heart. Really finding her actions with that other prince. Yeah. Like he could've really just showed him up and run circles. I guess that was one of my qualms was that character was that other prince was a fella was a little over the top without having anything like to do with it. Mike built up this really over the top character, but in really do much with them show up in third act where he could have been like some bystanders. Yeah. Like, yeah. I was just going to say, I also felt that he was okay. I know that we're dealing with a movie called a lab. Yes base, I animated. But all of the other characters though, they might be big for the world. He was over the top in a sense that he didn't fit the joking nece and his his character like it was like. I unfortunately it's not selling to me. Yeah..
