"Pounding. Show stopping. Edge of your seat. Race to the playoffs. And when the world's best drivers push it to the limit. Anything. Can. Happen. The race to the NASCAR playoff. On NBC, USA and peacock. Thank you. All of you. But I think we have Tyler I appreciate you joining our availability man, but I think you might be on the wrong. You might have entered the wrong media availability session. Yeah, I actually, I don't think that he did. I'd like to announce to the media that today I would like to formally announce Tyler Redick is part of a future member of the 23 11 and Twitter racing family starting in 2024. So, hi, buddy. Hey. What's up? Thanks. Surprise? Surprise. Welcome to NASCAR American motor mouse. You just saw that's how the big news landed in NASCAR yesterday, Nate Ryan here with Jeff Burton, Dustin, are you in the room? What am I doing here? I'm not supposed to be here. That's the line is supposed to be here. He is in the right place. We also have Parker Kligerman joining us from Stanford a little bit here, but let's start discussing the news. I mean, your take, did you know that Tyler Reddick was going to go drive for 23 11 racing in 2024 before yesterday? Well, I'm not going to answer that question, but my first, I want to let everybody know that when I found out I was coming on the show with two writers, I downloaded the dictionary in my phone, so I would understand all the words that are going to be used today. We're ganging up on YouTube laptops versus zero. So listen. No, I did not know. And what was great about that video was urging watching the members of the media. They're all still think it's a joke. They're all like, ah, it's funny. They're like, wait a minute, this is real. I think it's a brilliant move by Denny Hamlin and his team. I think if you look at what Denny Hamlin is building there, I think he's done a great job. They're bringing in a guy that I believe is a franchise player. And if you think about Michael Jordan and one player can do a one great quarterback, one great driver can do one great player on NBA team. He can have a major impact, not just in an individual race, but in winning championships. And they believe they got their guy. And I think they did too. And I appreciate the aggressiveness. I hate it for Richard Childress racing. You guys know, I'm a huge fan of Richard Childress. I do think Richard has an opportunity here,

"Implications for financial markets Three minutes in episode 5 times a week thoughts on the market On the next show the two writers of this weekend's New York Times article with a deep dive into mayor Ed Koch as a closeted gay man and how that affected him personally and affected the city It comes as there's a new push arguing that conscious name should be removed from the queensboro bridge Also the reasons for and how to cope with the baby formula shortage the Brian Leo show at 10 a.m. on WNYC It's morning edition from NPR news ami Martinez in Los Angeles California And I'm Stephen's keep in Washington D.C. good morning Who would have thought that 2022 would be the year when North Korea first had COVID The country claims to have found its first outbreak It's imposing a nationwide lockdown Up to now that cloistered nation has insisted it was COVID free Experts doubt that but what is certain is that North Korea is one of the few countries on earth that is not even begun to vaccinate its population And because Anthony Kunis covering this from a safe distance in Seoul hey there Anthony Hi Steve Granting that it's hard to confirm anything in North Korea what's known Well the official Korean central news agency says that authority authorities discovered an omicron variant in the capital Pyongyang on Sunday The report had no information on the number of cases they found or how it got into the country But authorities have ordered all cities and counties locked down but North Korea just reportedly launched test launched a ballistic missile into the sea So clearly not everything is locked down Okay so the military is still going ahead with its work but there's a lockdown for civilians I'm just trying to get my brain around the idea that North Korea would have had no COVID cases up to now Yeah well at the beginning of the pandemic they sealed the borders they stopped all trade and they kept testing a small percentage of the population and claimed that there were no positive cases among them However there have been reports that authorities sent patients with cold like symptoms to quarantine centers Now I spoke to a doctor named cheong hoon and he was a neurologist in North Korea until he defected to South Korea about a decade ago and he says a lot of those suspected patients in the quarantine centers probably had COVID Let's hear what he had to say There would have been at least 30,000 cases at a minimum he told me and he says that's within the range of what the North Korean government is capable of controlling and monitoring although the actual number would have been Hank higher And chase theory is that north the North Koreans admitted this outbreak in order to deflect criticism of their cover up in harsh crackdown before Anthony I would imagine that any number of nations would have been happy to send North Korea millions of doses of vaccines Nobody wants North Korea to be a lab of viruses mutating So why have they not vaccinated their population Well the global vaccine initiative called covax has offered them millions of AstraZeneca and Chinese sinovac vaccines but North Korea has refused all of them and doctor chase says the reason is that they don't trust the western made ones and they don't think the Chinese ones work Well what is the risk now with that unvaccinated population Well I think North Koreans can see from China next door that there's a limit to what even the strictest lockdowns can do to stop omicron But doctor chase says that it's also partially that North Koreans see the threat of COVID differently Let's hear what he told me He says North Korean people feel a lower level of threat from the coronavirus than we do because there are many other dangers You can end up in a labor camp for something you said You can get arrested just for watching a movie And interestingly the Korean central news agency quoted Kim Jong-un is saying that what's worse than the virus itself are unscientific fear lack of faith and weak will so he was basically confirming that how you think about the virus in North Korea can be riskier than the virus itself NPR's Anthony Kuhn in Seoul always appreciate your insights Anthony thanks Thank you Steve A curfew was briefly lifted today in Sri Lanka people were allowed out only for a few hours But tanks are still patrolling the streets The Indian Ocean nation is in the middle of a spiraling political crisis brought on by an economic one NPR's Lauren Frey reports there's lots of uncertainty over what's to come Police with megaphones have ordered anti government demonstrators out of the protest camps that have become a fixture in Sri Lanka's capital Colombo The camps were attacked by government supporters earlier this week and violence spread across the country now police and soldiers have orders to shoot anyone causing disturbance But some protesters still defied a curfew last night to gather in The Rain and once again call for their president's ouster.

"It's possible right up on utah. Did i back. Did i go too far to find out. If you're telling the truth. Not talk about this anna. This is the problem with someone like you is that we're going to. We're going to go off on all these tangents which are delightful. But i have some things to say to you upfront. Which is. I was very happy to be talking to you today. Because a massive fan of hacks but had a specific thing that i wanted to say Which is that. I think it's one of the better depictions of the creation of comedy that i've seen on screen. That's so incredibly exciting to hear that you feel that way and we saw we saw the vulture article where you kind of said that and we all were so excited in passing the article around and gene and kind of freaking out because we love you so much. that's so nice and i think that it's a completely accredited apology and jen and our writers. Because you know you are of I think with any project when you allow people to tell their own story. It's true to life. A lot of standup comics. Were in the writer's room paula and jonathan comics at various points in in their lives. And so i think it's really just a matter of really any storytelling Letting people tell their own stories. It's just going to be much better that way. Think not since Probably like the larry. Sanders show has been Something that to me feels like So true-to-life And watching larry sanders. I just tried to get sort of a feel for the writing sphere. Although that's like a late night you know area That that was really helpful in the one bone to pick. I always had with larry sanders show and i said this to gary. So it's no secret is really one writer. There was like one or two writers and they were jeremy. Piven just jeremy piven sitting around and there was one or two and then rehearsals were always kind of lackadaisical affair where they weren't really that worried about the sketch. Nobody know you're shitting yourself rehearsal and you have so many. It takes so many writers to just come up with a little bit of stuff so that enraged me but other than that it was very good depiction of emotionally emotionally tone of what's happening at a show but it's fascinating that i assumed when i saw the show i thought okay hand has gotta be someone who just grew up determined to do comedy and so i do a little research and by that i mean someone else gets and enhance me moments ago. Now mrs yesterday. I was thinking about this interview because really wanted it to be right and so i did some research and found out that you came to comedy kind of lake which is ridiculous to say. You're you're very young. You're twenty five or twenty one nurse. You're sixteen years old eleven and three like you said good skin says here you were born hours ago and comedy was not something that you were thinking about until fairly recently. Isn't that right. Yeah in college. I joined the improv team. Because there was a a a kid who i worked on a p. a. on a film said and he recommended that i come try out and i started doing comedy in in college and then I graduated in two thousand seventeen and started doing open mics. Every night is a young stand up. And i mean it's been like a a sort of brief I've been doing it for only a short amount of time. But i i think i kind of came to it seriously upon graduating college. It sounds like you almost took a all right. I'm going to do this so i'm going to educate myself. I am going to build myself. I'm going to lift the weights. And i'm going to know everything i need to know. So how did you do that. Training montage eighties music.

Been doing that since twenty six teen. I think and it's been incredibly rewarding to be able to leave behind the scenes and support people to share the stories that they're not seeing represented. So i think just naturally gravitated toward storytelling. Because it's how i've always connected with people. And i want talbot or people tell their stories actually on all at as that.

Someday have a much bigger mentorship program for storytelling specifically. I would really really love to be able to do that. So the money from the award. We'd be able to fund to those fellowships. Which i think was just a taste of what i hope to be able to continue. Doing you know the typical question of where do you see yourself in five years or ten years than for me. It's just doing what i do now but doing it on a larger scale and being able to support more people of tell stories. Let's talk a little bit more that way you are doing now.

"Some really damaging kind of unconscious stereotypes about big black women. You know like. I was talking about earlier so professionally the opposite of professional. Let's put it that way. So if i'm going into court and i'm in a suit and i have my briefcase in my heels or whatever. I'm aware that i have i like i am really really playing against type from a sort of cultural bias perspective. So yeah. I can't really divorce the two and for myself as far as you know protections against discrimination bias for fat people. I should preface this by saying that. This is not my area of expertise so there. I'm sure that there are scholars out there. Who who know more about this than i do. But i mean as you probably know those protections are almost non existent. I think michigan maybe has some protections round fat discrimination in the workplace but by and large they just don't exist and i think that that's you know that's a few different reasons may one. Is that the law usually grants these types of protections. Two classes of people and that class of people has to be able to you know. Show that that as a whole class they're likely to experience. Certain kinds of transformation are negative impacts. Right and i think in a sense fatness is. It's it's like a club. People don't want to join. No what i mean like of all the fat people in the country is probably like a dozen who wanna go like lobby congress. It'd be like we're in this group of fat people and we all experienced this kind of you know systemic hatred or whatever so i think part of it s like fat people's own distaste which of course is like a reflection of internalized oppression for fat people. You know what. I mean totally. I think we also have a really really strong sense in our culture is that fatness is a choice and the lie. It's always gonna protect classes of people more when we don't think it's a choice like you don't choose your race at least for the most part you know or as the law understands that you don't choose your gender they're called immutable traits and legal speak and we just don't think fatness is something that you kind of are or are not we think of it as a choice and often as a failing and were less likely to offer protection to any group of people where we think that the cause of their discrimination is partly their own failing to measure up so i think we have a very very very long way to go and most of it is not legal. You know. I think most of the work is like your podcast and this kind of stuff happening. That's beginning turning a huge ship. It's like slowly the way people think about body size right and it sounds like maybe the law kind of lags behind that shift in the culture at least in this case because yeah like we have to turn the ship towards like understanding that body size is actually immutable in a sense in that like yes you can change at short term. You can suppress your weight short term but long term. That's not possible. And actually you know. There's decades of good research showing that even though that research doesn't really get the airtime in the mainstream health perfect you know not yet not yet exactly. It's it's starting to pull out a bmi chart. My doctor is year and my daughter's to your checkout. And i was like put away. So it's not out there all the way yet but you know little by little and i think you know i'm sure anyone can remember back to the sixties and nc pictures of like you know. Say it loud. I'm black and i'm proud or black. Is beautiful like there has to be a sort of critical mass of the group who wanna band together and experienced their identity and live it out loud and with pride. And i think that's growing right. Yeah yeah the more people are like screw this. I'm not dieting. My body is going to be what it is the closer we are to that. But i don. I don't think we're there quite yet. I also think like some people have made the legal argument like in lawsuits that they should have protection from some. You know being fired because they're fat for example because fatness is a disability. And it's not for me to stay. What's right or wrong for any plaintiff in a particular case but to me. That seems like a very troubling road. If we were to head down that end mass yeah of course. I'm not saying that. This cannot be a disability for a particular person or be related to a disability but on a public policy perspectives. That would seem to me. Like really doubling down and kind of moving backwards on some of the fat phobic diet culture stuff that we already are trying to undo right. Absolutely those are great points. And i think that probably goes a long way to explaining like why it is such a tiny fraction of all the municipalities and states and stuff in this country that have any sort of protection. Because i think there's like a couple cities in california. Maybe santa cruz has some on the books about this and like maybe a couple of other cities but it's yeah there's almost no government has has come down with legal protections for larger bodies and i think that's that makes sense. You know that we just don't have that critical mass yet of people who are willing to fight but it it is getting there like it is i mean. Every day i feel like. I'm seeing something new where i'm just like. Oh wow like samantha. B.j like talked about had like a segment on her show about fat positively and why. Dieting doesn't work and like yeah. It's awesome. i can send it to you. Yes please. I would love that. Yeah she has two writers. Who are fat ashley. Nicole black and forget the other one. I listened to ashley nicole. Blacks podcast and it's really good. But then she like talks about you. Know just sort of in passing talks about fat positively so i was like oh she's really cool and then saw the segment was just lake. Hell yeah like that is. That's awesome and just another interview. I just saw with some author like a memoir s. or something. I don't even know what she's famous for anything but just like in that book. Apparently there was something about being stigmatized for her size and she being interviewed on like some talk. Show some while you know. It's interesting that both of these people that you've point out are women right because that's actually legally another piece of the puzzle to the extent that law really is about how we order society and how we keep order in society and we live in society with a lot of hierarchy. That's part of the order right. So to the extent that fatness and fat discrimination are going to impact women who were lower on the hierarchy more intensely than it's harder to build that wave of change because it's not affecting someone who's at the top right that's interesting one more you know. It's just any identity at the bottom like who's going to experience fatness or discrimination around fatness in a more severe way person of color transgender person. Whatever it is immigrant person like it's going to be deemed less important basically. That's just the way hierarchy works totally yet sort of compounds the oppression and yeah and makes it less sort of likely that the mainstream or that. The people in positions of power are going to take the complaint seriously. Yes that's exactly right. That's exactly right Well that is really interesting to know. And i hope that like just getting this idea out there that like legal protections probably are not gonna come until we have some social change at like the more philosophical level Maybe can help you know. Push things in that direction. Because i do think we really need all of you know we really need the the cultural change and the philosophical change and we need legal protections to for people because there is incontrovertible evidence that people in.

"We'll let's find out when we visit the incredible world of horace ford mr horace fort. Who has a preoccupation with another time time of childhood a time of growing up the time of st game stickball and hide and go seek yes a reluctance to check out americas the nature of his image proof positive that the time he dwells in has already passed him by but in a moment or two. He'll discover that mechanical toys and memories and daydreaming and wishful thinking in. All manner of odd and special events can lead one into a special province. Unchartered unmapped a country of shadow and substance known as the twilight zone broadcast on april eighteenth. Nineteen sixty three. Reginald rose and directed by auburn bittermann director. Tonight is abner bittermann. And it wasn't too long ago that we met him when he directed his face twilight zone episode. The domi and i think that was an episode where he brought some real direct. To'real flourishes an interest in visuals to that show and he was able to use that dummy prop to great effect so i won't go into his bio too much because i'm sure we spoke about it back then but he was both an actor and director and i sing from looking down as credit. It's perhaps directing where he made. His biggest mark acted to more twilight zones after this one so we helmed for in total and i personally feel. He's got quite an interesting roster of twilight zone episodes starting with the domi. Then the incredible world of horace ford the number twelve looks just like you and then finally i am the night columbia black but the big question is could he bring any of that flare that we saw in the domi to horace ford. Well let's find out and tonight's writer of the twilight zone is also an interest in one. He's a gentleman by the name of reginald rose who was born for years before rod sailing and careers followed quite a similar pass however rose seemed to skew away from science fiction and fantasy for the most part is pay the bills by writing episodes of the anthology shows of the day. Like playhouse. ninety a one but this stretch of their career was punctuated by the occasional success. That raise their profile and raise the bar for writing in general for sailing of patterns or requiem for a heavyweight for reginald rose it was twelve angry men and then they both created successful socially conscious television shows per sailing. Of course it was the twilight zone and for reginald. Rose was his one thousand nine hundred sixty one. Show the defenders miss show about a father and son giulio lawyers who often talk on cases to do topics that were quite controversial for the time things. I use an asia on american activities and even abortion were all topics that the defenders examined while the defenders only got four series compared to the twilight zones. Five it did have to revival television movies in the ninety s and both of these writers also had versions of the same story made to for rod sailing. It was again requiem for a heavyweight and patterns for reginald rose it was twelve angry man and the incredible world of horace fort because the twilight zone version of this story is not the only version of this story. It's not even the fast vision of the story in one thousand nine hundred fifty. Five reginald rose wrote and episodes of theater one in hollywood called incredible world of horace ford and rod enticingly. The title character was played by the twilight zone. Favorite are connie and it was directed by planet of the apes director. Franklin j chef. And i believe that. This was the episode that i talked about early on the vision that was fair shown into rod serling for consideration of being remade to include in the twilight zone but when the twilight zone was actually already in production there was another version of the incredible world of horace ford made again and this one was written by reginald rose on this time it was released in one thousand nine sixty and it was for another anthology show called encounter now. This was a canadian show. That was a series of hour long episodes and two boasted some great names in its cast including twilight zone alumni. Like william shatner. I'm barry morse now. The encounter version of horace ford was again written by reginald rose. All three versions have been and the title character was played by. British actor called alan young. You had quite the career himself. But one of his. Most recognizable roles was as voice actor because he gazed at distinctive scottish brogue to the character of scrooge mcduck and duck tales and numerous other appearances and i would dearly love to do a deep dive on all three versions of the story so we could compare and contrast them because although they were all written by reginald rose that are some differences with the twilight zone version but i would've especially loathed to watch the arcand evasion but unfortunately i just couldn't find them to see them and if they don't exist anymore i think that's a real shame so reginald rose android sailing we're on similar paths. Pastor didn't tend to really crossover that much but mark grams. Junior writes in unlocking the door to a television classic about an editorial written by a writer called edith f ron and the editorial was called cana tv writer keep his integrity. And apparently this was as martin grams. Junior says a backhand slap at rudd sailing who had made numerous comments in the public eye about quality television. Now i can't find our regional article to quote to you for martin grams junior quote sailings response to it and he wrote the tv guide and he said should tv guys have any further interest. Interested me. I would count it as a personal favor if they refrain from sending miss. Edith ephron with haley's handled hatchet to do the job reginald rose on the other hand praised ephron and he said. I've seen the tv guide piece. And i'm writing to thank you for all the effort he put into making it an interesting and excellent article. I only wish it could have been longer. So would this stare any animosity towards the two writers. Well rose ended up on the twilight zone so economy not bad because in the same month rose wrote to sailing saying that the only reason for the letter.

"You weren't telling those single episode to episode stories. You're telling you know this big long story and consequently There wasn't really succession plotting. I think to really pull it off. You know there had to be more going on as far as Or more developments instead of just circling around the same location and not really driving the story. Forward and probably the inconsistency of having various writers involved as opposed to maybe one or two writers telling the entire story Might of contributed to that a little bit. So that's probably why certain episodes are better than others because probably there you have some riders that know how to pace episodes better than others. Consequently right right so trivia early development rovers regarding this project of the suggested that the four season of torchwood was going to be a reboot of the show because they originally tried to pitch this to fox. You know it just kind of like how. The bbc originally pitched doctor who back in the nineties with palm again But that deal didn't apparently fell through so they ended up a different deal with stars who obviously officially announce the project and then because of stars getting involved It's a different set of exotic. It is and maybe some of these executives probably in this probably factored into the actual production. Probably didn't really get torchwood because it's american executives versus british executives so different while show. Maybe we don't know it's hard to say they could have been fans but It certainly didn't seem that way. I mean they didn't even have to watch the whole show just watched the last season. I know you know five episodes. How hard was that. They'd take it from there but hurts. esther drummond was originally called esther ca tucci k. a. t. Usi you right exactly.

Yes, Capitol Rioters Were Armed. Here Are The Weapons They Used

"Of the people who attacked the U. S Capitol in January six. Syria's of videos on the FBI website shows the mob punching and beating officers. It also shows rioters using what appear to be batons and baseball bats and dousing some police with chemical sprays. Still, some have falsely claimed that the capital riders were not really armed. That day. NPR investigative correspondent Tom Dreisbach reports on why that's just not true. Not long after the Capitol riot, Republican Senator Ron Johnson said this the fact the matter is this didn't seem isn't like an armed insurrection to me. When you hear arm don't stick up firearms, it's become a popular narrative that the capital riot was not really armed. It's also misleading. First, Let's talk about guns. It is true that the only gun fired on January 6th was by law enforcement who killed writer Ashley Babbitt. But the Justice Department has brought gun charges against at least three people connected to the violence of the capital. Those three are not alleged to have breached the building. One of those defendants, Lonnie Kaufman, allegedly parked his truck near the capital filled with what a federal judge called a small armory authorities seizing from Kaufman's truck, multiple firearms, a crossbow. And a cooler containing particularly lethal homemade Molotov cocktails. Prosecutors have also cited evidence from Facebook posts and witness statements that other writers brought guns on the Capitol grounds, too. Capitol Police estimate around 800 people breached the building. But the vast majority were not arrested or searched at the time, so we just don't know exactly how many might have been carrying guns. But the other weapons people were armed with Those were plainly visible from the footage that day. investigators say there were batons, fire extinguishers, baseball bats, clubs, at least one stun gun. As well as pepper spray. Those weapons are often classified as less lethal. But police expert Lorenzo Boyd says they can still be deadly. What we do know is there were a lot of other weapons that could be lethal weapons as applied, officials say more than 100 officers were injured on January 6th entry, suffering gouged eyes, concussions and damage spinal discs. Capitol Police officer Brian Sick. Nick was allegedly sprayed by two writers with an unidentified chemical and died the following day. Authorities still have not identified his exact cause of death. NPR has been tracking every single criminal case related to the capital riots. Now more than 300 of those cases, we've identified nearly 40 that reference, a suspect wielding some sort of weapon. This was a pretty heavily armed crew of people compared to what you usually see it protests that tidy Pyrrhic, co founder of the global project on Hate and extremism. She's followed extremist groups for decades. Even when you see people who are armed it protests and states, for example, where they have open carry laws. They aren't storming into a building using the weapons in the way that we saw at the Capitol. What's clear is that given the weaponry seen on January, 6th things could have been a lot worse but by Rick is concerned that efforts to downplay the violence are less about the fax. About politics. There's a reluctance on the part of some in conservative circles to accept that domestic terrorism is largely coming from right wing extremist groups and to actually confront violent extremism in this country, she says. We have to be clear about just how dangerous it can be. Tom Dreisbach. NPR news

Obviously we've covered <Speech_Female> a lot but <Speech_Female> do you have any tips. <Speech_Female> Africa <Speech_Female> people who are transitioning <Speech_Female> to working online <Speech_Female> Or <Speech_Female> specifically maybe two writers <Speech_Female> or maybe more <Speech_Female> general <Speech_Female> <Speech_Female> and just so that they <Speech_Female> can thrive <Speech_Female> through the <Speech_Female> experience.

It's a Major Award: Literary Medals and Prizes

"For today's episode. Yes I decided. I know that we're like we're kind of an award season. Yeah absolutely will talk about the Grammy's and the Oscars and all that stuff but I'm not talking about that and more highbrow highbrow. Today's episode is. It's a major award literary medals in prizes so ooh I don't think I know a lot about those great great. That's what I'm here for. Thank you so I feel like sometimes there's different there's different prices that are for specific genres of literature will cover those on their certain prestigious swans. There's ones that are for like a specific work published during a year or sometimes prizes honor a specific person and take into account their whole body of work. So it's not just like a book award. Sometimes it's just like an author award or -actly exactly in the field of literature so cool the first one. I'm sure everybody's heard of this won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Sure to this. Is that Swedish literature? Prize awarded Bennett ordered annually since nineteen o one It can be to an author from any country who has in the words of Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel produced quote in the field of literature the most outstanding work in ideal direction so while individual works are sometimes cited as being particularly noteworthy. The award is actually based on an author's body of work as a whole so literature is one of the five Nobel prizes established by the will of Alfred Nobel in Eighteen ninety-five Lauren. I know you hate it when I do this year. Can you name me? Can you name me the other Nobel? Prizes okay Health and services. That's a cab. No there's is there medicine yes okay. There's Oh God chemistry biology astronomy. Shoot up down just naming science physics yes okay. And then one more big one engineering. No and the big won the Nobel Prize. Yes these species so the fit. Sorry I know. The five Nobel. Prizes are literature chemistry piece physics and physiology or medicine. Okay I'm economics is sometimes considered under the name of the Nobel prize but it was actually added by Sweden's central bank in nineteen sixty eight and is actually named Nobel's memory. It wasn't one of the original prices. Okay so it's kind of a with an asterisk. Yes okay okay. So for literature specifically Each year the Swedish Academy sends out requests for nominations of candidates and members of the academy who are members of Literature Academies insiders professors of literature and language often sometimes for former Nobel winners and president of freighters organizations. They're all allowed to nominate candidate. And you cannot nominate yourself By April that year the academy narrows the Field Down to about twenty candidates and then a month later. There's a shortlist of five names so for the next four months everybody everybody like on the panel is supposed to read and review all the works of all the candidates like like you got four months. You have to read every book this guy ever Bro. If I know anything about academics. It's that they're not going to do that. Really really tearing back the veil here exactly so by October that you remember how to vote and the candidate who receives more than half of the votes is named the Nobel laureate in literature so no one can actually get the prize without being on the list at least twice what's unclear and so many of the same authors reappear and are reviewed repeatedly over the years. Maybe that's how they get around having to read all that stuff because they're like. I did that three years ago. I'm not doing. I'm not doing that again. So the judges are composed of an eighteen member committee. Who are elected for life. Why up until two thousand eighteen? They were not technically permitted to leave. But I can crawl can carl. The Sixteenth Gustav Amend the rules of the academy and made it possible for members to resign if necessary but at a certain point. It was like you're on the committee for that's very ominous so a literature. Nobel Prize laureate earns a gold medal. A diploma with a citation and a sum of money. How much money you ask. The amount of money awarded depends on the income of the Nobel Foundation that year but for twenty one thousand nine hundred it was nine million Swedish krona equivalent to nine hundred thirty four thousand two hundred ninety dollars and ninety cents American. That's nothing to sneeze sneeze out my man. No one hundred twelve Nobel prizes in literature. I've been awarded between nineteen o one in two thousand nineteen to one hundred sixteen individuals that has been to a hundred men and fifteen women. Geez it's been actually shared between two individuals on four occasions and seven times. They decided not to award at anybody. So the laureates have been writing in twenty five different languages over time so it's not just like not just English not just Swedish. Whatever the youngest ever to receive the Nobel Prize in literature was registered kipling. Who was forty one years old when he was awarded it in nineteen? Oh seven and the oldest. Was Doris lessing? When she was eighty eight. Wow got it in two thousand seven. Two Writers have actually declined the prize. Boris Pasternak in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and John Pulsar nineteen sixty four assaults right but the most recent winner. And that's in this whole episode. I'm going to go over the most recent because if we talked about everybody that's ever wanted a frigging a word. That'd be boring. It would be boring and fun but that would be so.

Muslims Are Having A Hollywood Moment

"Is changing on American television and online streaming services. There are more Muslim characters and more nuanced portrayals of Muslim communities NPR's Leila Fadel starts to story on set in Los Angeles. It's one of the last days of taping for a new web series called east of LA brea, all ROY. It's a show about being your twenties and figuring out life, and it's told through two main characters roommates who are Muslim, but that's not the entirety of their storylines says Samir Gardezi, the creator of the show it's about paying rent. You know, having a dead end job. I'm having issues with you know, your your family life going to families the first project from powder cake, the company founded by director writer and actor Paul fig known for films like bridesmaids and the recent Ghostbusters east of LA brea follows the friendship of two women a black Muslim and Bangladeshi American will slump in gentrifying, Los Angeles Gardezi says, it's one American Muslim story. There's so many different versions, and my hope would be that everyone gets a shot that tell their version of a Muslim Americans story. So it doesn't feel like, oh, this is the one show that needs to make it all the way. We had to the next location for taping an LA mosque the scene deals with racism black Muslims, sometimes face within Muslim communities. The character. I show Hudson played by Geoffrey Maya is praying when her phone starts ringing with a song like this guy. You gain the director tells the other actors how to react and ladies look at her little shady in the next scene. A woman skull Tessin, assuming she's a recent convert and tells her her prayer doesn't count. We have lessons every Thursday one in conflict with it's something that happens an immigrant Muslim, assuming she knows better. And it's one way the show explores identity, and he's still brea creator Samir Gardezi says he's glad there are more projects involving Muslims. But he says there isn't going to be one breakout moment, but hopefully, there will be many moments and the more stuff that's out there, even the bad stuff. The better. That's that is the flexibility and the privilege that I think white communities is that they're allowed to fail and Hollywood and no one really bad tonight. It's like, okay. It's okay. You can you can jump back up and here let's throw millions of dollars again for you to do your next project. So that's the point that we have to get to. It's a struggle a lot of communities of color and minorities face in Hollywood, the two thousand eighteen Hollywood diversity report from UCLA found that despite progress minorities are still under a presented in key jobs from lead actors to director. Two writers right now, there's an appetite for shows about Muslims in parts because Muslim writers like our daisy who's written on modern family and outsourced are creating their own content and their support for it. He got a grant from pop culture collaborative to create the series and some of the interest is Hollywood reacting to anti-muslim and anti-immigrant sentiment from Donald Trump after he announced his candidacy in two thousand fifteen the Hollywood bureau of the Muslim public Affairs Council got a lot more popular the phones were ringing off the hook that sue Abadie. She leaves the bureau and consults with studios and production companies on creating more authentic Muslim characters were up against decades of storytelling. That is inaccurate many times that is racist often and very stereotypical among the tropes women are chattel and don't have identities or Muslims only portrayed as the gas station owner or the taxi driver Obeidi says, it's an uphill battle. But today the list of characters on mainstream television. In is longer than she's ever seen a Muslim third on Grey's anatomy, a superhero on DC legends of tomorrow, a LGBTQ hijab e Muslim on on the bowl type a pork loving alcohol. Drinking Muslim on master of none. When writers come to her for advice. Obeidi reminds them that these Muslim characters might be the only Muslim some people ever meet. She tries to help them. Get the language, right? Like scripts that used the term alot Akhbar, which means God is great. So you've seen many TV and film projects that have LA walkabout being used in very violent scenes how baiting a Goshi it's studios to try to get them to change it translated or offset it with happy scenes like saying God is great at a wedding or a dinner party because for Muslims. It's a beautiful phrase portrayed as ugly. You know? So someone Sears hook bud when they're dining out. And all of a sudden, you know, they're calling nine one one because they think of family is doing. Something bad. When all they're saying is God that was a damn good meal hawk bud. And I've eighties excited by many of the projects now being written by and about Muslims for large audiences. There's soons eight a Palestinian American comic with cerebral palsy writing an autobiographical sitcom for ABC Moammar a comic with the recent Netflix special and Rami Yousef who I met on a night. He's headlining at the Hollywood, improv. He jokes about how in L A's. Suddenly people think Islam is cool juice shot of getting some juices ten song. It's woman I'm telling her about Ramadan. And you know, she works in my God that sounds so I wanted to do with this weekend. She said Coachella. The New Jersey native is following in the path of many comics who've gone from stand up to sitcom like Seinfeld. Rami Yousef is writing ten episodes of show cult Rami for Hulu it will reflect who use of is in gypsy in American a practicing Muslim who like most people wrestles with trying to be good after a stand up performance. He jokes about how he and his friends approach religion a little like a menu. We call it a LA carte where we're all kind of just picking and choosing like wool. This is my deal with God helps Rami reflects how all kinds of people have their deal with God. I like to get dark. I like to get weird. I like to get uncomfortable. And I feel like when an immigrant family, or when a family that is maybe, you know, group that's not well represented when people try and put them on television. They go out of their way to make them. Look amazing and look perfect his show do that. I just was really excited about the idea of making Muslims. Look imperfect and not create something that was like some PR thing, but create something that was you know, really just a realistic portrayal of what we go through. How we are. He says that people connect with others when they see their flaws not when their hero of villain or exactly like everyone else
