He's a final cut pro expert who has been using the absence like the early days of the software I think when it yet cert- up with a crank or something. Now Lee is the expert. He's talking all over the world these days. Virtually we're GONNA talk about how his business has changed as an editor that's Kinda stuck sheltering in place like the rest of us Lee Herbert Welcome showman how you doing. Much. I'm much like the rest of the will of surviving this year. So yeah, we we're getting. We're we're we're based in Melbourne. So we are now in I think we twelve or thirteen time has no relevance anymore of of lockdown here. So Yeah, it's It is what it is. It is what? gives us the the Reader's Digest. Story the first resume paragraph of WHO Lee Herbert is. Yeah, the first line, which ironically as an editor I, struggle to keep things brief when I'm talking. which. Because as an editor, obviously your main job is to make sure that you tell your story in the most short and succinct way. But when I'm telling marine. Story. But. So a little bit about me I have had many over the years but I worked in the apple wheels for ten years of a favorite Tom was that as a final per China. But at the same time, I also did a lot of theatre and TV and things like that and so I sort of ended up wanting to do a lot more production work. So I left Apple. Back in two thousand, thirteen I think two, thousand, thirty, two, thousand, fourteen, and started mining production company I. Still focused a favorite on training really enjoy the training side of things but yes oh, you know thankfully, we've been going from strength strength and so been doing. Mostly corporate videos for large and medium and sometimes small corporate clients my passion Israeli documentaries because I. Love. I love telling people stories in learning people's stories and Yes. BUYS. That's that's the the high level view of what I do and why do it? That's cool and you love this stuff I mean you you've been editing on I mean obviously as evidenced by posters on the wall behind you, you are a fan of apple products? And you have not working. We're apple a for a while since I've known you've been contracting on an offer. Those guys, right. Yeah it's. Yes on an. been doing doing stuff for them. Luckily I get to do stuff for up dump stuff cerny done stuff for a lot of stuff in the medical field. So we worked visor with books for GlaxoSmithKline. Quite a few local companies here as well. Obviously was the big stuff. But yes I've been doing a lot of corporate and I really. It's funny. The corporate side of things I think photography might get this quite a lot as well is that I get quite a lot of friends of mine who are in the field but they work more in in narrative do soap operas they do movies and things like that and they say to me Oh you know I'd hate to do corporate stuff because you sort of a confined and be. You know you might not have. A particularly exciting product to talk about and I was like, yeah. But that's like that's the really cool thing for me is I love the idea of having to look at a widget and go how can I make this widget coup? How can I find the story and helped tell the widget story so that you know the people can get it like I was just having a virtual meeting with a client earlier this week in you know she was saying that they want to build a relationship with the production company because I don't just want to talk about the speeds and feeds of what they sell they WanNa talk about the benefits they want to talk about you know. got these cool buttons but here's why does cool buttons are going to make your life better and here's why you should buy it. So I really like that aspect of. Doing corporate work yeah, yeah, this whole world though you know as you as you look at just sort of the shifting of where things are right now, you know like the title of this, the stream slash recording is editing an isolation and as you and I were talking about offline last week I think it was there has been some positive you know obviously. You know the whole thing is negative. There's no way to spin it as positive but there are some cracks in the clouds and that are revealing new revenue streams that you didn't have prior to the whole pandemic. He talked about that a little bit of how things have shifted from Lee. Herbert hopping on a plane first-class to go to a gig versus. Lebron up skype in firing of invoices. What does it look like? It's definitely Dif- Liam. been quite different from that. So I'll given. So obviously like I had when when everything sort of started going crazy I had at least five to ten jobs that were either put on hold canceled, and obviously I'm not going to get flourine outs to the USO Asia wherever it is GonNa fly me out to to shoot stuff for them but the interesting converse of that is. Interestingly enough events because my my company we do we do a few events. We got a couple of in the middle of the year and then a couple at the end of the year. But like regular ones, men bits and bobs coming but we didn't really do a lot of events and funnily enough a lot of the work that's coming from lately is from virtual conferences. So I've had quite a few corporate clients who they've got staff members who are presenting it at virtual conferences, and thankfully they have realized very quickly that just doing it on a Webcam is not a good look for the company. I think we've all kind of like one of my biggest concerns when when the whole lockdown thing started is if you watch the news just about everyone that they were interviewing on the news, which is in the terrible lighting situation with you know they they elect either under the nose looking straight up they nose as what will up somewhere and you got people in the background working with their underwear it was. Dogs and cats living together complete my him and I was looking at that going. Oh, my goodness I. Really Hope People don't get used to it and go. Okay. Well, this is just how you know. You're not going to have good lighting. You're not going to have good camera. You're not gonNa have good microphone and we just going to be eastern that's going to be fine. I was like I'm out of work. This is awful. But thankfully, what's happened is a lot of my clients have looked gaunt. Yeah. You know we could do better. So there's been a favorite of consulting but I've done. So locally here in Melbourne between lockdowns, I worked with quite a few clients who realize that they were going to be working from home lot. Warn I helped them get even if it was just bit a webcams or just. A little you know like, for example, a lot of them when they could get them in stock. This thing called the Algata cam link between you and me there's tons of these for twenty bucks on Amazon that you can get instead of big fancy expensive ones. which allow you to connect. Dias Laura Ramirez camera into your computer used as Webcam as I am with my ach three now.

Rebecca Hart: new solo mother, small business owner
"So I own a yarn store in cary North Carolina our Surrey's Lip I've owned the store for a little over eight years now, and I have a seven month old girl Miriam. Who is now sleeping in the store in the little makeshift bedroom for her? Yeah how does how does that work? So you just bring her in with you and you do have pretty normal stores now or how how does that work not quite and were playing around with the hours right now. But obviously because of Covid we're doing appointment only we're about to shift that, but typically I'm here. Five or six days a week. At, least like ten till three sometimes I do work after the. War It really depends on what's going on store and her schedule Times. She wakes up earlier or later. So, I do have a little bit of flexibility to cove it. I don't know if that's good or bad but. But yeah it's it's been. It's been interesting. So she just comes in naps there are hangs out with you while you're. Here early enough. So she can be down for her I. NAP. Anywhere between nine and ten, usually she goes down at and that's where I usually am able to get a good chunk of work done for a couple of hours whether have customers in or I'm doing work on my computer. So yes, she is fantastic a taking early nap and I really take advantage of that. Afterwards it's really hit or miss whether she's able to play in her little play yard independently, which is not for log or I throw or on my back, which is a new thing I've been doing and we're her or. I have in my lap and I try to take with her relapse. So tell us about warm and fuzzy yarn like why where did the idea for this business come to be and I assume that you must have been the crafty sister growing up if this? Maybe, take take our listeners through the journey of like how you made the choice with your career. Take really big and kind of risky stuff and like kind of with that thought process was like. And just kind of the bravery while I mean it's hard to to your own horn, but it was a very brave stop so. Tau Tell a little bit about that yet. So I had been working at a corporate job before for eight years, and now it's hard to believe that have actually been at the store now longer than the CIA which is amazing. But I was doing business eggs of doing. So a spreadsheet work during a computer all day long. Part of me liked what I was doing another part like hated just corporate of aspect of edge and I was just I felt like I hit a wall and just was brainstorming things to do and I kept coming back to yarn because that was always something like after work I remember driving to a yarn store in picking up yard and it was it was the highlight of my day and join know what exactly when it came into my head. I took a couple business trips down to Arlington, and nearby in Alexandria is a wonderful store. Named Fiber Space and they had just tons and tons of hand yard and each time I went. I, couple of hundred dollars on yard, which is pretty easy to do and I remember just feeling that that type of really was not available in the area or very, very limited. So I thought about that in at some point, I just. Wondered about how feasible it would be so I took a business class at night after work and handed amazing adviser helped me write a business plan feasibility studies in talked a lot. My friends were niggers and shares actually I was more of a crocheter when I started I got obsessed into knitting, which is more popular. Now, most of my customers and little by little, it somehow didn't seem impossible I needed to get my elsie license I needed to get. The finest space in have fire check, and it was just one thing after another and about a year after I started researching was opening my doors. and. So you sell. Tell us mean for those of us who are not yarn connoisseurs the hand I'd yarn is like the high end of the market right for people who are very particular about their sort of knitting. Yeah I mean there's hand died and there's also just a small scale production so. Pretty much all of my suppliers they're either one or two percents show or it's one of my brands that I love everything is sourced in a us from the actual wool the sheep event, it's died and a spun everything is done in the Uso just a lot of very very small-scale partners and it just makes it special. That's kind of exciting that the sheep are American citizens to.
Xbox Series X Hands-On Preview Round-Up
"Xbox series x hands on previews are up as of this morning. As you all know xbox, they stand out a bunch of xbox series exodus to media professionals They've gotten their hands on they've been playing over the weekend in the last week and they're previews are finally available. So I've assembled basically the avengers of video games writers for this guy got folks from. got. Folks from Gamespot from venture be and I'm going to go through some of the right people have to say some of the things you had to say about xbox series I'm going to start off with Ryan McCaffrey at is and who writes this First, a word on the console itself it is hefty but in a good way when you hold, it feels like premium five, hundred dollar thing for whatever. That's worth when you turn it on the box, the same startup chime the xbox one family of consoles do in a I'm a bit disappointed in that. Honestly I. Get the consistency. It's a sound though it is a nice sound but you want that new you know. You want the news I Will Ryan McCaffrey saying here I get the consistency but I liked new sound while I'm speaking subjectively I think the series x also looks very nice in its article orientation. It looks bold in assertive indoor entertainment centre with the concave green-tinted vent perforations on the top adding a really nice visual appeal. I can't say the same when it's laying on its side, it looks more like a fireplace log. More importantly, this thing is quiet it's almost inaudible when it when it's idol and read debt-reduction to, for instance, is still pretty quiet much more. So than the xbox one X, which gets noticeably louder under full load. Thank God targets me. So soaked that gets me so to especially because this last weekend I've been, I still Greg Miller playstation four pro from the office along with the TV office so I can get that. You Four K. Experience and that thing is loud dude everything sounds like a lawnmower I didn't realize that you my base ps four got loud I. Didn't know that ps four pros got that loud. It's Wild Man I. The thing that I'm most excited about with these new causes coming up is hoping that there's a chance that they're quieter and I love that at least so far it is a good thing to hear. In clear though with The p the PS four pro that he's using the studio he's using that one at the studio because he got loud and he switched it out for one that he had. Okay. So that one is louder than some PS force can be. Four on right now. Yeah. It's my. Rose K. to us oh, is running right now. I love you call your vacuum Uso, your Roomba. That's a really good name for it and actually while we're on this topic like how it looks with Ryan McAfee's right up here folks. No I'm roommates with Michael Higham from gamespot Michael Higham one of the folks who had an xbox series x so I can give the scoop that looks great like vertically it is hefty it does feel it is pretty heavy like it is like a hefty piece of technology mom but anytime I've gone into the living room that thing that has been virtually silent and like yeah, the thing looks like the top with the green accents there looks really nice. I can't imagine that thing on its side because like. Ryan McCaffrey references here. Right. Like on the side. It would look really awkward like that's kind of my take on it. I don't know why anyone would have to have that on the side of Saif Mike space right like I get. In a in a situation where it's like the only have so much room. Height for mine yeah. which is the thing that sucks but it's also this. Thing like I. I'm struggling to think about where I'm going to put mine because I also it's GonNa. Look ridiculous donal but article I just think it's going to stand out and just be weird. So we'll see. Yeah, I'm scared with both this in the PS five I how they look if for people who are GonNa get both because the PS five and all the different. Comparisons. And mockup scene of that thing seems huge. Like seems abnormally big. Like stylish and sleek, and like has a cool feature. Is thing going for it but it seems big and so like trying to figure out how that is going to fit in your entertainment center next to a series x right at least in the same entertainment centre as a series I think it's it's going to be a challenge for some people because those two things are very different designs, very different boxes. Good Luck on that folks,
Coronavirus cases rise as Europe begins to see second wave
"Europe's covid nineteen cases are spiking. Here's how four different countries are trying to stop a second wave by Melissa. A resurgence in covid nineteen cases as gripped countries across Europe leaving politicians grappling without a curb. The spread of the virus governments are now strengthening regulations around mask wearing limiting the number of people that can gather in public spaces and honing in on areas with particularly high numbers of cases. This week Europe experienced a record high number of new Corona virus cases reaching seventy one, thousand, three, hundred, sixty, five on September twenty first according to the European Center for Disease Prevention and control more than half of European countries have reported a greater than ten percent increase in the past two weeks. Hans clued the World Health Organization's Regional Director for Europe said at a briefing. Even countries that had largely avoided the first corona virus wave such as the Czech Republic are now seeing surges stricter regulations to try and curb the spread of the virus could remain in place for the entire winter in the United Kingdom, for example, where case rates are doubling by the week prime. Minister Boris Johnson announced new restrictions yesterday that could last six months warning that the country is at a perilous turning point. Many. Of the new restrictions however look different to those imposed at the beginning of the pandemic rather than implementing uniform nationwide regulations. Many countries are now opting for more localized approaches. Why are governments in Europe locking down by region. Countries are wary of nationwide lockdowns that would have crippling impacts on their economies. Local restrictions allow governments to curb the spread of the virus while keeping parts of the country and the economy open. But restrictions are also different this time because the nature of the pandemic itself has changed new infection clusters appear to be linked to younger people who are less likely to die of the virus. The result is that this latest surge of cases has so far been less deadly than the first back in March and less burdensome to healthcare services. Even if the number of cases are high, the impact in terms of hospitalization and deaths is very different compared to March says Dr Jacobo Mendiola Ross, the Director and coordinator of the committee responding to Corona Virus in Catalonia. Rather than calling for stay at home owners, many new restrictions, target bars, restaurants, or other public venues that young people may be more likely to frequent. But the new restrictions could change if older people began falling ill and greater numbers already, there has been a significant increase in the number of older people testing positive for the virus in France and Spain of the past two weeks leading to upticks in hospital admissions rising case numbers threatened to overrun hospitals and healthcare services if not managed carefully. We are not in the situation we were in March yet says, Dominic Costa Yulia, a member of the French Academy of Science and the Vice Dean of research for the Faculty of Medicine at the Sorbonne University. Here, how four European countries are responding to the recent surge of Corona? Virus. Spain. Spain has been facing a resurgence of covid nineteen cases since July and now has the highest infection rate in Europe. Over the past two weeks one, hundred, twenty, two, thousand, new covid nineteen cases have been reported with close to a third of cases occurring in Madrid the country's capital. The total number of confirmed cases now stands at more than six, hundred, forty, thousand and hospitals are reaching their maximum capacity. On, September Eighteenth eastbound de as a USO. The president of the Madrid region announced a partial lockdown of the thirty seven most affected parts of the region which came into effect on Monday the measures which affect close to eight hundred, fifty, thousand people many of whom live in the poorest parts of the city require individuals to provide justification for trips out of their neighborhoods and has limited the number of people allowed in restaurants or retail establishments. The News of the lockdown sparked protests in Madrid where hundreds gathered on. September twentieth the groups that organized. The protests said in a statement that the government has done little to protect vulnerable people in the city and have instead opted for stigmatisation exclusion and territorial discrimination. France. On September twelve French health authorities reported ten, thousand, five, hundred, sixty, one new cases the highest number since the pandemic began in March since then daily cases have risen to more than thirteen thousand, the cumulative number of covid nineteen cases is now at four, hundred, fifty, three, thousand, seven, hundred, sixty, three, and continues to rise. It has the second highest number of total cases in. Europe after Spain. The government has delegated the task of implementing new regulations to regional authorities. Currently, the outbreaks appeared to be occurring in certain locations and not in others and a nationwide lockdown would have unnecessary economic repercussions Prime Minister Jean Castex has said. In Paris, Marseille and Bordeaux. All major hot spots for the virus authorities have implemented local measures to curb the spread and Bordeaux and Marseille visits to care homes have been reduced. Dancing has been banned at bars, weddings, and local companies have been asked to make their employees work from home if possible in Marseille and Paris, the sale and consumption of alcohol on the streets after eight PM as been banned. Wearing a face mask and public is now mandatory across Paris and many of its surrounding areas riot police units, and gendarmes have been deployed to enforce these measures. However

Lexington, Prague and Life inside the US Open bubble
"Tennis is back and it is back courtesy of to tournaments in Lexington and Prague. which have taken place over the last week that meant that Katherine Wichita was presenting tennis on television once more Matt's round of applause for Katherine. How good was she? Splendid. You've made me do around of applause well, holding microphone in one hand is difficult but Katherine. Presenting, tabby look very, very easy as she does. Did you do it. Yeah I really did I mean total shock to the system I had to wear non elasticated wastes I had to. Get up before nine am and. Work. That's D Work I mean a lot of that work was watching tennis and talking about it, which is no hardship expertise violins out for me, but it did take. A couple of days of adjustment and I did I did parise my tally wardrobe and veer towards the items that did have elasticated waste say no longer in the suitcase, which now is buying up yet it's been the Kobe. Pack the. Case. To take to St Louis Park. Containing my my tally jvm. Isaac. is any impact through week Stockley Park is where the video assistant referee job isn't it for the football? Yes I've had a va or seminar at Stockley Park. I've you know from? The the BBC. SNOOKA, coverage is coming out of the an adjacent studio at the time. So I was I was mingling with Ken, Doherty and Stephen Hendry all week. So blockbuste-. TENNIS PUNDITS CATHERINE was presenting Amazon prime videos coverage of Lexington We will talk about that. We'll talk about Prague, we're GONNA be talking about the USO and people that are playing people that are not playing other pullouts this week Rossi GonNa talk to Dan Evans. The British number one on life in the bubble he arrived over the weekend. A chat with him last night. So we'll hear from him about what it's like over there. 'cause we can't go this year, which is going to be a bit weird but. At least it looks like it is going ahead from a sports playing tennis playing perspective. At least we'll be something for everybody to watch. But the the event itself in. Lexington am I right in thinking that that was Put. Together in about a month's yeah I believe four weeks. Was the time line. Say, John Saunders, the tournament director over there they had some from Octagon, the management company and they do or they haven't passed hosted a challenger event. So they do have some experience of hosting tournaments but it a very very. legit respect, low level and they they three together this this tool level event four weeks notice. which. ADDS the eyes of the tennis world's on it. The top seed Tennis Club which. Is positioned adjacent to retirement home and with a fairly main road running across the back of the center court. Along which there were. Removals, vans and cement mixes and pickup trucks. Interrupting, interrupting the days tennis frequently. And it was all delightfully quaint and so apt somehow because tennis is more humble. Now upon its return in tennis players are having to be more humble and so it felt kind of really perfect that status his return I know we had Palermo last week in. Pro Pro concurrently, which is a more established tour van but to meet just felt really perfect that it was as as humbling as it was a setting. And even more perfect. He had kind of tennis's biggest superstars at the moment Serena Williams, coca golf and Venus Williams who emerged as they. See Pistol once again,

A Unique Brand-Building Moment In Time For Aesop
"Of a confession to kick golf. I am a bit of a fan of the high quality sites, just kind of like the smell of feel just like it, but I do have a bit of trouble justifying the extra expense. This is buying the stock standard stuff as a result is another confession. I'm one of those people that needs the good stuff from the hotels. In my job I've been travelling quite often staying nice hotels, and if I've got nice quality soaps and Shampoos on the guy that nickname, just another contrition. But of course, the moment I'm not traveling my supplies dwindling, and so on the weekend my wife comes on with a special treat, which is an assault hand wash, and I'm a fan designed big fan now. The ICE help stores already a super cool great design. It's great quality product, but my wife was telling me what happened issues in the store. The really encouraging you to wash your hands a lot because of course with these USO. It's about washing your hands and keeping claim. And as a result of that, of course everytime she's washing hands. She's getting another smell hands from the great fragrance out of the soaps. And so then I stopped, think well. This is an opportunity. I think if you're a luxury soap brand, because if you think about it when you walk into these shopping malls a lot of times you've got to get. You got to sanitize your hands right there. Usually often spray you with that really antiseptic smelling sanitizer. And, it's just not that Nice. It doesn't smell that Nice, but you need to do that to get into the malls or to get into the shops. But if I was ice out, what I'd be doing is offering a bit of a membership cod, which gives you unlimited handwashing installed so I come into the shopping mall. I get that horrible antiseptic, smelling sanitizer my hands now I'm in the stole then I can go straight to the store and with a membership card, which I've paid fifty bucks, or whatever it is, I can come in and wash my hands with quality. Nice smelling. Nice and phony, eisold. And of course, what that does is a couple of things. It gets people into the store. It gets me trying your product. It creates a bit of a buzz and winced a great story, and the reality is on probably gonNA end up becoming a fan of your product, and ultimately of course buying more stuff, so I reckon if I was I saw I'd be launching the on the hand, wash, membership, Card or something, something along those lines, and could work for a number of different quality soap brains as well, and of course you could also maybe offer it for free to you know the security personnel. WILL THE CLEANING PERSONNEL? Irs Baked so I reckon Roy now at this time when we're all obsessed about washing hands. If I had a high quality product, I'd be realizing that this is a unique brand building. And I saw. If you're going to create one of those cogs for, USA Malaysia let me know because I want to buy one every time I walk into those shopping malls. Way Is an isotope store. I guarantee ongoing new store for my free hand wash. and a free smell, and by the way hats off to ice up. I think it's a great brand. Love the what I said of they store Michael. O'Keefe folks over there at. Thinking, doing a great job well already,
My favourite tennis match
"We'RE GOING TO BE KICKING OFF. A new series and looking at some of a favor owed time tennis. Matches will also be catchy on the tennis news as well a little bit catch on with the virtual Madrid Open. That's just happened Andy. Bari Packard a virtual school as well as the news. The tennis is actually starting up again in some parts of the world in Germany. But before we get into that Kim how you doing. How is how is lockdown? Treating much the same as last week H. O. By fairly fast actually despite the lack of store which is really weird. I think I've kind of just go used to it now but having said that I did cheat in worship Madrid. I didn't won't should awful. I have to say it was. Radi my cup of tea just kind of saying it on a playstation today. What is g thing? Yeah it was a bit of kind of a completely new scenario new situation and I think it's kind of recognizes that living in these times they can open up new opportunities and of course you know this is one of them in the tennis world and I thought it was kind of really interesting to say I think in terms of what I liked. I absolutely loved the place. Be BUYING INTO IT. And procreating like the war codes Up there that the herbs to the controller I really loved that I'd like pretending to warm up thumbs and I really liked the way that kind of the players go invested in it and we're kind of really enthusiastic about getting creative and and kind of showing it off on on social media See I think that was kind of one of the things I I really liked. I saw I think it was Belinda. Bench really went. Allow it like a tennis gear. As I said could walk up the stairs a yeah just thought it was great to see getting really enthusiastic about it. 'cause we've not seen them on a TV. We're not seeing the you know what she pilots. Whatever as fans over the last few months it's just almost kind of great great to see them again really. Yeah I thought that was. That was good like the best saying the players saying the engage with the wall. I thought bench probably owned that one. I just like the little bits in the corner. We can just see their faces as they're playing. You just want to see their homes in the pack right to see what what. They've gone like their bookshelves or like. I just find it really interesting is like through the Keyhole. But he the past and that is really hyping. The stands framed in the background. Well potentially coming up in this focus on his lovely shorts but no yeah I. I didn't really like actually watching this. Nsa Watch just liked having the players kind of interacting having a bit of a laugh so that was nice to see the thing. This format would. I didn't think I'd want to see this every week. I think it would get a bit repetitive. After a while but I think it was a good kind of one off thing and obviously Andy Murray one that we should give him credit for that because he's now won the tournament on three different surfaces. If you can cool the virtual sphere surface adolphus. The Andy has donated his prize. Money half is going to the NHS and half is Gordon to the players Relief Fund. So it's obviously for Good Kohl's and Kiki burdens won the women's event as well and I think she was actually due to defend. Muhtar to say she has succeeded into that are mixed in our love. I love that idea. She's she's the non virtual virtual back to back very innovative. Double D for a champion. But yeah I think yes kind of great to see I guess. Play his Getting involved I think one of the things that I think they could have done. Better way of is the had this common tree over the top of the of the players. Now I I was kind of the point where I think it's more insightful. And more interesting if you just let the play is very commentary because Y- They are tennis players that professionals at the end of the day you'll be ready. I think what bringing up level is kind of almost kind of getting them to kind of talk about the tactics or you know that sort of that sort of level that sort of layer that. Yeah well my sick on a Royal Corps And it's like if I was doing this show in real life. I would choose to go here because of X. Y. And Said Yeah. It could be more of an educational thing as well I think what I did. I cheat and they lost connection because I was watching on light-years addicts correct show. It was just having to could LE- sort of chats while they were waiting for everything to ten on again. Did you see the I think Diego Schwarzer was best. Play at Deborrah. The savvy FIDO's but due to a weak WIFI CONNECTION. Debry a sorry. Schwartzman had to concede walkway. So I mean I love that idea. The like I think that's going to be one of the VAD. The walkover reasons happens to the best of our good today that like even top tennis players have poor Wi fi and all safely on. La has had a bit of a Jake because he said that Rafa could play because he'd like injured his back reaching for his game controller. Which and everyone believes here. I think I mean I think we believed him as well. As we've always believed tweeted about be cowed they gig for Geria- saw and I thought this this off to the best of the fortunately that was not the case. Rafeh was able to play. But we'll just very gullible but yeah if they're going to do this again like I think it could cost you on. But just every now and again maybe they do in other Walden on like Wimbledon. I different surfaces. I assume this playstation game has all the different surfaces they do girl scout one. Couldn't they maybe federal workup? That yeah that I think it could work. I think it could coexist when the tools get back up and running. I wonder if it's a sort of you know in the in the grounds of the events and you have fans can go line up for like an autograph from players and I wonder whether you could be like. There's a stand somewhere grandson for example. Oh face off against some. I player playing tennis against them. Virtually Sake I could see that happening. I know there are a few comments. The game was almost up to like up to scratch And you know whether it's the improvements to be made with with the game and you know I think I think potentially peop- governing bodies like the ATP liked the W. H. E. A. Maybe they should be looking at partnering with Game's about to really kind of Mak- licensed game like fever. Because I think you know I think this is as you said. This is very new is almost kind of this was a test and you know. I think there is appetite for it but I think there's almost kind of a lot can be done on that so a product side of it. Yeah for sure. I'm sure that's an avenue. They could possibly see going for. It's an yeah I like the idea that you could maybe have a bit of a play on it while you are an event. Perhaps if during a rain delay or something and even on Joe we actually have some real tennis. That's happened this weekend in Germany. It's kind of the first actual players of setback on cool so they've done a little exhibition featuring Dustin Brown and seven other players including randomly the British benign. Yon Shouldn't ski. Who I think is based in Germany. Anyway so yeah. That's been happening this weekend. We'll see JEB. So you fall head of other countries. Getting back to normalcy. So they've been out to do this. Little event Neko blends at the Base Tennis Academy. It's GonNa oversee how necessary health and safety measures in place. So they've obviously not touching hands at the net. They're going to touch rockets instead. There's no ballboys fans line judges. They're obviously doing it. Very watered down version is not for any points or or anything. It's not count I guess. Prize money's involved. So it's I guess aimed at lower ranked players to to kind of keep them earning something during this time and I think it's only for players based within about ninety minutes of the event so it's overseas a very limited
Why Negative Prices Exist and What They Can Teach Us
"Last week? The price of the May twenty twenty West Texas intermediate crude oil futures contract known as WTI fell to as low as negative thirty seven dollars per contract that means the holder who was long oil was willing to pay to exit the contract. Cnbc markets reporter. Pippa Stevens wrote on Monday for the first time on record west Texas intermediate the US oil benchmark plunged below zero and into negative territory before Monday. Many thought this was impossible. Maybe just maybe it could drop to zero effectively erasing. All value but negative territory seemed unimaginable. Not least because it's hard even to wrap one's mind around it pay someone to take your oil in this episode. We're going to see why oil prices went negative. We'll also look at other examples of negative prices and why they exist and what we can learn from them. The WTI futures contract has a physical settlement which whoever holds the contract when it expires receives a barrel of oil the contract settles in Cushing Oklahoma. That's where that of oil is delivered if he owned the contract. That's where you're going to get your oil or at least arrange for somebody to store it for you. Us crude inventories are near an all time record high. In cushing Oklahoma. Seventy percent of the storage capacity was four as a mid April and a Reuters. Article suggested that most of the available space already leased out. There's nowhere to put that oil. That is being received as part of the future contract settlement. Now the May oil futures contract has since expired and now the June oil futures contract is the front month contract that will expire in the third week of May. Yesterday the June contract fell twenty five percent just under thirteen dollars. They United States oil. Etf USO fell fifteen percent. It has lost eighty three percent year to date leveraged exchange traded funds tied to oil have shut down. They lost all the money products by wisdom tree. Ubs and velocity shares which is owned by Janice. Jim Cramer said there are times in life where people know that there's an instrument that is faulty and they can shoot against that instrument and bury these people there is this financial problem people who are buying the USO that United States oil energy T.F. Bay our financial people. So if you're a real person or you're a large contractor a large player they can wipe out the USO in. I think that's been what's going on. It's not a conspiracy. It's a reality when you have an organization that can't take delivery. Well you should crushed that organization every time and that's what probably happened. Who are these people that are getting crushed that own USO? Well some of them are retail investors. But most are institutional investors John Highland. He's now retired but he was the former investment officer of the United States Commodity Fund which manages USO. He pointed out that eighty percent of USOC shares are held by non retail investors hedge funds include energy trading desk and other professional players the purpose of this ETF was to allow investors to get exposure to the front month contract of oil at the end of twenty nine thousand nine. It had one point. Two billion dollars under management and the vast majority of its investment at the end of December was in the February wti crude oil futures contract that expired in January every month this ETF would sell that contract right before it expired. And then by the next contract in order to make money it needed to sell that contract for a higher price than what it paid for it right now when you look at the price of West Texas intermediate crude futures contract or is a steep premium as you go further out
US Crude Oil Prices Go Negative As Demand Disappears
"Oil prices are in freefall lockdowns across the world have dealt a huge blow to demand the US benchmark for June delivery plunged forty three percent today down to eleven dollars and fifty seven cents a barrel. That's a twenty one year low and it comes just a day after some contracts fell below zero for the first time in History Brent crude the global benchmark followed suit Brench for June. Delivery dropped twenty four percent to nineteen dollars and thirty three cents a barrel joining me now to explain as Wall Street Journal Markets Reporter Amorth Ram Kumar. So amorth put this in context for us. What are the economic implications here? The energy sector crisis has massive implications for everyday Americans in the world economy just here in the US. The energy sector has become a huge industry. And it's very important geopolitically and it employs so many people so the prospect of bankruptcies and mergers and acquisitions for some of these beleaguered companies is really staggering. We're seeing the focus of even stock market investors kind of shift now from the corona virus temporarily at least to this existential threat facing a critical industry. People think that oil demand and fuelled demand will go back up once measures to stop the spread of the krona virus or with did but for now people can't consume fuel and that's really driving this chaos. People say it's really an oil crisis turned upside down. So many Americans remember previous oil price spikes causing inflation eroding consumer spending now gas prices are cheap but no one can take advantage of it and that could really fuel a lot of chaos in the energy sector and when you start talking about widespread bankruptcies and things like that. That has the possibility of Stan spreading into banks which have learned heavily to these companies in recent years. Are we seeing this begin to impact? Us oil production at this point. What's happening there? Many producers are trying to curtail production but the measures are to. It'll to wait in North America in the. Us and Canada. Many companies have been forced to shut in productive wells. So when you think about that. That's pretty staggering. These wells that function normally and at certain prices are economic. But now the numbers. Just don't make sense. So companies are being forced to shut in that production and so that's lowering supply. But it's already to wait. The world is simply out of storage in many cases for its excess oil and a price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia that was resolved recent. We really made this all worse so for a few weeks that we supply was increasing as demand was crumbling. And that's made it all just really chaotic. You also took a closer look at how. This is impacting retail investors. What did you find retail investors trying to take advantage of the crude price slump and bank on a rebound have piled into risky? Etf's like the US oil fund which trades under the ticker USO. Hundreds of millions of dollars have flowed into that fund in recent days. And that's very risky. Because is tied to some very complicated oil market structures that make its price go down. When their differences in futures contracts basically the fund is collapsing towards zero and people are trying to buy it counting on a rebound but because of how the fund is structured. That might never materialized and say that's causing huge losses for regular people who are buying funds that they really shouldn't be or they might out fully understand that's again making us all worse kind of the repercussions are really now going beyond just the energy industry and that's something people are very worried about.
Explorers & Contenders: Annette Kellerman
"Meet the one and only a net. Kellerman a net. Marie Sara Kellerman was born in eighteen. Eighty six in Merrillville Australia. A suburb of Sydney. Her father was an Australian violinist and her mother was a French pianist and music teacher. As a child Annette's legs weren't strong enough to support her so she wore metal braces as a form of physical therapy and conditioning. And that's parents took her to a local pool. She later described that experience. Saying only a cripple could understand the intense joy I experienced after I learned. I go swimming anywhere anytime. The swimming really did help. Strengthen a nets legs. She was a natural in the water and she had a flair for the dramatic throughout her life and that would combine her sport with feeder to entertain the public by the time. She was around fifteen years old. She was winning races in setting speed records. She was also performing diving exhibitions and swimming in twice. Daily shows with fish at an aquarium her skill and ability to entertain set a net part and she further made a name for herself as a fashion icon at that point in time. Victorian societal norms were strict. When it came to swimming tire women were supposed to Don pantaloons and a loose dress so as not to show their figures a net found that overly burdensome and created a new kind of beating costume hers left her arms exposed and was very tight warlike one piece bathing suits today if they extended down as shorts or pants and that was actually arrested for indecency while swimming on each during a Uso trip to Massachusetts in one thousand nine hundred seven volynets spent much of her life making varied contributions to fashion entertainment and society at large. These achievements stemmed from her incredible talent at her sport among other feats and that set the world record for the Fastest Mile. Swam and help the swim records for a number of major rivers around the world after moving from Australia to England. She swam a daily circuit from town to town along the coast in preparation for an attempt to swim across the English Channel. She eventually did try and fail to swim across the body of water though she made it three quarters of the way despite that failure a net kept on swimming and winning races. She swam in a seven mile race through Paris in front of five hundred thousand spectators and tied with another woman to sixteen men after. You're up a net headed across the Atlantic to the US stateside annette focused more on the performance part of rear. She wowed audiences by stunt swimming and high diving. She also allowed many with physical appearance. A Harvard professor deemed a Net. The perfect woman because her measurements were so similar to those of the Venus Diallo. Naturally this proclamation helped draw in even larger crowds. Those who couldn't make it to a live show. We're in luck. A net took her talents to Hollywood at the height of the silent movie era. She appeared in multiple films though most are now considered lost. Because there's no known footage still in existence. Most of her movies had plots connected to water and she often played a mermaid notably and that was the first major actress to appear. Fully Nude onscreen annette continued swimming and performing until the nineteen forties. She credited the sport with changing her life in nineteen eighteen. She said but for swimming. I might have been hobbling about on crutches today instead of skating. Dancing and indulging in twenty five mile constitutional in addition to making my regular livelihood as a moving picture mermaid or flirting with toto. The funny fish through the walls of the glass tank at the New York hippodrome later in life a net became an author speaker and owned a health food store in Long Beach California. She continued to swim till nearly the end of her life. In nineteen seventy a net and her husband who had been her manager moved back to Australia. A net died in nineteen seventy five. She was eighty nine years old. Annette Kellerman popularized her sport and buck norms for her gender paving the path for future women swimmers success. She was honored by the International Swimming Hall of fame and she has a star on the Hollywood walk of
Revisiting the Archive: Shirley Willer
"And at that time was considered criminal. Thanked I remember being picked up by the front of my shirt back and forth by a policeman because I was on the streets at eleven o'clock in a head on slacks women's slacks and sports shirt policemen policemen. I was walking down the street trying to find a gay bar that I'd heard of women on and women's slacks but obviously made us Taylor as possible trailer clothing. Means what Brooks present. Now that I'm not talking about a man I'm talking about a woman's I had massive muscles here Made rebuild the top here. They costs fortune. I think cost me all one hundred twenty dollars to have tailored the policemen say anything that would he was hitting you too and he called me. Names Dan Pervert you acquire Uso me and so forth and you couldn't call the police. Could you didn't call. The police was a policeman but in fact I finally did find the bar and I'm not sure but what might still be. There was a seven seas where this the first bar you went to. So you got you got slapped around the first time you're on your way salmon and we're doing bar stupid question here. Was that frightening and was frightened. I was angry. Why were you had no right to do that to me? And that's been my attitude on. I might have done right you. How did you find the bars? How did you know about this all started out as most people do thinking I was the only one then? I realized there had to be more out. There wouldn't be any kind of books and it wouldn't be any definition but of course I didn't know how to war ended always Cormon came back. These nurses Miller came back in the navy and the army and then of course when they were working in the hospital we met each other and most of them were pretty flaming Queens. When you say these guys were flaming. Can you describe for me? What what that means. They will call it being extremely swish. The mannerisms were very limp-wristed. Even at work they would emphasize terminent characteristics. Thank goodness city. Hospital was simply didn't seem to pay much attention to it. They did the right to do the job right. That's all that matters at that time. Big Events in Chicago with the Halloween balls era gun Huge ballrooms one on the north side. When southside every Halloween all bars were off and everybody went in cost and all of us would get Tuxedos and over all the women and dressing are bushiest silos and we all go to balls The air gun was on the north side of Chan. Southside these particular big events where again run by the Mafia and We'd hired them scenes. You see and get a police escort through the crowds in order to get inside and one year gay people one year that people could be gay and it was the only visible sign that they're literally were thousands and thousands of gay people in the city. Where was the first time you went to this? And the nineteen forties was short short. We have to gotTA service because I remember. They dressed me how address you enter. Tuxedo and tied my and put makeup on me. I never worn makeup in my life wore dresses. When did you become aware that there was any kind of organized? There wasn't much unorganized organized movement The Oni organized group that I could find out about was one which was more literary and this is already by nineteen fifty early nineteen fifties and ten so what happened during the during the nineteen four. Then it was pretty much on our own volition that we would so many young women that were being thrown out of their homes so we started our own little informal groups and we take in all the kids. I take it out in the street and we would he pushing them to stop trying to hide it. be themselves. I believe that you should stand up becomes dangerous for most people. It's always dangerous for anyone who doesn't have any money in the bank. We weren't many of them endangered. Losing their jobs depend on the job. They would take no majority of wouldn't take jobs where they were endangered. They would go for the Dirty jobs rough jobs running elevator. I remember one in particular very bright girl but the only governor she could get was running an elevator because she wouldn't wear threats so are we didn't call ourselves any particular group.
"A Medically Induced Economic Coma"
"So the Wyatt matters team like everyone else is home and it's hard things are scary. I don't know about you but I've been having endless video chats with my friends and family and aside from drinking wine while showing off completed puzzles or homemade bread. We're mostly talking about two topics health and the economy we bounce back and forth what starts as a question about how someone's feeling turns into an update about who lost their job. These conversations are happening everywhere. Nobody wants to get sick. Nobody wants to lose their job. And it can feel like it's one or the other as people deal with these worries. Some politicians and business leaders have called for a return to work in order to save the economy even at the expense of lives. It just keeps coming up and so we decided. Hey let's pick up the phone and ask two of our fellows to help us understand the problem. One an expert on health and the other an expert on the economy. Just a heads up that this episode is going to have a different style than our other shows. It's essentially two conversations without most of our usual music and narration and possess. Don't worry though we'll be back to our regular format and non corona virus programming for a season to premiere in two weeks. But for now I'm Gabrielle. Sierra and this is why it matters today saving the economy and saving lives. Do we have to choose okay? First Tomboy key senior fellow for Global Health at the council. He's getting a lot of these calls so hopefully he's not tired of answering Tom. Blakey how are you? I'm okay grappling with the shutdown. Like everyone else. Yeah what is your work from home situation? She asks while sitting in her closet so he answers while sitting in my in my bedroom where we have three small kids. So you know. That's a challenge and we live in the city of DC so there is no great backyard for them to run around in so they bounce around the house. More or less like excited molecules at this so we have officially made it to April. Felt like we would never get here. Longest MARCH ON RECORD. I believe is the expert opinion. Do you think April is going to be worse than March April in the United States will definitely be worse than March? That's because by and large it takes about three weeks for people to start showing clinical symptoms so starting to get physically ill from having contracted the virus. It spreads as everyone knows at this point exponentially with a lot of cases occurring among people who have unreported infections. So I wanna ask you about something that I keep seeing people arguing about on social media even though I'm trying to avoid some of this stuff pretty pretty hard but do you feel like we have to choose between saving the economy and saving lives. No I think saving lives or more specifically keeping people from getting infected is really the only way to save the economy. The reality of this is is that we are not going practically to be able to go back to work until we get this back under control so the best economic policy. We have is health policy. At this moment we can have a bad. Economic impact of this pandemic with good policies will still end up there or we could have a much worse. Economic impact of these with bad health policies plus all lives lost. And I choose the former. But I've heard people say that if we don't spend money saving the economy. Many more lives could be lost in the long run due to recession. So do recessions kill people? They do recessions. Do Kill people. There have been a number of studies that looked at the great recession. We saw health impacts deeply for men and racial and ethnic minorities and it ranged from a lot of our Diseases of despair that exists out there already in terms of suicide or alcohol or substance abuse traffic fatalities safe harm declining fertility. You name it. You see that in recessions and we just saw a dozen years ago so we're going to see that again but again. The option here is not preventing recession by allowing this virus. Free Rein to run rampant. It's we want this to be a shorter recession or we want this to be a deeper and longer recession so the idea is to focus sort of on the immediate and the short term and that will help naturally the long-term absolutely know China's starting head back to work South Korea which had its first case the same day the United States head. Its first case is back to work. You know we can do this. We got off to an awfully slow start but it can be done in the sooner we can do it. The better for us both from an economic and health perspective. So I've read that half. The national stockpile of ventilators has already been sent out. Which sounds really scary. So if we want to stimulate the economy and fight the pandemic at the same time. I don't really understand why we can't put more people to work making masks the protective gear the ventilator is the things we need so we can but we need to mandate this. They're going to be still supply chain issues about. Can we make all the components? Can we get all that but you know we can manage that? What is difficult to manage is to be doing this in April instead of doing it in January February. You've in early March. So what choices has the US made in situations like this in the past? Are there any past success stories? We can emulate USO in the past in World War Two and in the Korean War. We granted the executive branch broad authority to regulate industry so that we could ramp up supplies that are needed for the nation's offense. We are in that kind of moment now. The president is talking about doing that this week. On a limited basis. And that's great and I'm glad for it and we should but we are awfully late for this wave but here's one thing. I do emphasize unfortunately. Is that even when we get this under control? This isn't going away. This is just the first wave of this now. If we can manage to get ahead of it we can do what some other nations have done which is have good surveillance and testing and really minimize the effect of future waves. But until there's a vaccine are really effective therapeutic set can reduce people from getting sick from this. We're going to keep seeing waves at this point. There're more than a million cases globally. It's a virus said isn't going to go away. There's signs that it's going to go away with weather so ramping up production is good for those second ways. I'd just wish we had done it earlier. So is good for this wave two. So has the timeline on a vaccine. Become any clear so it's a year and a year and a half away. That's what we're looking at. The other thing to know about the vaccine is once we have it. We still have to make it in the kind of volumes that can address people's needs you know how do we do that? But even once back scene becomes available. We'll take a little time for everyone to get it so I shouldn't be pending all my hopes to that vaccine Not In the short term in the long term. I'm a believer in human innovation. What I do think you need for that to have. Its effect is realistic and honest. Assessment of the challenges we face in the urgency in addressing them. But when you have that I fundamentally believe in us to have that innovation to address that we just need to mobilize it sooner than we have been. What does the endgame of this pandemic look like to you? The medium-term and people should be honest about this. So I'm going to try to be in. This podcast is that you know even in countries that have done well with this. They're still seeing cases. They get cases from people returning from abroad with infections like sparks. You know you need to control before they set off at wildfire. That's going to be the reality for a year or two years with this virus that we will have that risk so it. This is not going to immediately go back to the way it was. That's the medium-term this the long term is there only really to either. We develop a vaccine or at least sixty percent of the population needs to become immune the challenge with the latter route. Is it will come at a great human cost so I would like to bet on the former.

5 Boys and a Baby on the Way With Ariel Tyson
"Thank you so much for being here aerial. I'm just so excited to talk to you about Motherhood in life. Yeah thank you so much We actually moved to Montana a little over six years ago. Now a were from the southeast part of the USO very different a lot warmer or sure a lot warmer. We came here with two kids. And I was Thirty weeks pregnant with my third and since then we are going on. I guess four Montana kids and they are all boys so far but we do not know what number six is and I am doing about twelve weeks. So that's been fine. We started home schooling while here Montana. That's a whole other thing that we have Taken on along with me working. I work from home and yeah love that this'll be my fourth home birth and My first two were hospital births in North Carolina and then all of the Montana babies will be home births. Yeah how fun so I would love to ask you since you have five boys. Did you ever feel like you had like a little grieving when you didn't have girl? Yeah for sure and that is a question. I actually get a lot from people on instagram. That are too ashamed to say it. Themselves rate So I'll get little messages like I know I shouldn't feel this way and I can't talk to my friends about it because they would tell me. Just get over it and be happy for healthy baby but there is that Desire for that relationship with a daughter. both my husband and I have that and so we just have that desire so any time that I don't have one of my I wonder if it'll even be possible for us So yeah I think I. I definitely talk a lot about that on my instagram because I feel for families that have all of the same gender that get the comments when they might already be grieving and so I think it's extra a painful situation so someone who has all girls that might be really desiring for a boy and someone who has always too so yeah I definitely feel that and I think it's something that we need to be aware of and that it's okay to have a little bit of grieving and to go through that so because it's not even a question that you love your babies like of course serving a love your baby. Of course you're going to be excited about that me like you know the ad like shun you because you weren't a girl it's of course you carried that baby you gave life. You would die for that unlike you love themselves but there is that you know. I have a friend who just found out. She's pregnant with her fourth son and they were. She carried this one different and she was just totally thought. It was going to be girl and they found out it was a boy and she's like same like I feel bad like obviously I know I'm GonNa love my kid but she's like I want to be done having kids if I know I'm just going to keep having boys but if there's a chance of having a girl I wanNA keep trying yes like. I don't know yeah. Yeah I think I get even more defensive of the baby I think even more so just because we get so many comments from strangers but I yeah I can. I can definitely see how people feel that way. There's so many people who have extreme her mom over and they don't know how to express it and then there's some of us who are just. Hey you know this is hard but we're GONNA get through it but yeah exactly like your friend. It's just that kind of moment of I wonder if we can even have another another gender or not. Yeah but yeah so far like we have not try. Try in quote tried for a girl. We've been we've for our first pregnancy not for any gender you know. Everyone's like oh you're going to try for Mike. Well I mean we have babies. And they're great but we don't try for specific gender but yeah it would be awesome here. I wonder how true like any of that is because I've also heard like there's certain things you can do but ultimately it's not really in your control unless you're doing right. I have found that you can pre select the gender and stuff like that right my husband as one of four boys and he has one sister so we totally expected that. Yeah it definitely comes from them. My aunt uncle five boys and two girls so you never know

"They had graduation at one of their seniors. We created a Special Jersey for him analyst. I was like a really really highlight for me so for me. At the end of day the catchphrases in the brand is all about empowering generations. Just to be better so you can see where it ties in with. My fitness fitness. Love of helping people love community so the whole notion of. Hey this brand is all about empowering people bring people together and making sure that we're cannibal and uplifting each other so yeah that's the brandon allowed show. I have two thoughts right. Yes I is that I'm kind of blown away by the fact that you were at the very very beginning of the story of the brand you said it was born out of Martin time. Yeah which is just what we were talking about so now the reason for much time. Yeah you're right you're right you're everybody got up at six. Am neighborhood just as cool as a funny story. Pay Me so too. Long like I said to him are Bro. I need I need a lawnmower. Ana He needed borrow mine sidebar. I gave him my mind. Says I'll bring it to you six o'clock in the morning when I come around to your house on my show so as you can hear him come United States. Obviously they're not on very loud gets to my house and put it in the garage and he starts laughing as woken. It's like what happened. He Goes Menez pushing these 'cause obviously the early workers right. That's slowdown drive. Really slow next to them as a pro. You know what they're probably stealing someone's long six o'clock in the morning I said let's keep it just walking and praying walking. I'm pushing the LAWNMOWER. The second thing I think I saw obviously like being someone would yup but the brand is not only for my biggest clients are those who are not put like Pacific. People like it's crazy. 'cause they're mad at people like Hey. I've a friend of a friend who SAM on and they always call me also. I'm like that's Cohen's it's I'm going to buy it. And where it so when they wear it then. Pacific honor friends. Like where did you get that? Yeah who made their brand so then they contact with me. And so it's it's it's for me. It's a worldwide thing that notion of being a Bravo being assisted us on that. That's a universal value and said to be able to do that and so the brand is just basically a leverage point. It's a conversation starter at the end of the summer whether you like. Why are you wearing that? What does that mean? It was very obvious Japanese and means completely something totally different. I think it's like an offensive word or something serious because there was a guy off. We're GONNA Name Adam. Adam random he works in England conference is that all right and his and his wife Aiko. She's she's Japanese. So when I was talking about the brand ahead of fused stuff on me and I said here's a branch she's like. Do you know what this means Japanese? I'm like she's like. She said it was an offensive. What she started laughing. I said No. It doesn't so anyway except for those who in Japan. If you want to buy it and offend people probably not rushing this part of the world. You can wear it yet. There's no barriers no barriers. Who can wear who can't wear it and say awesome?

So think about the richest person in the world unite for example Bill Gates. If that he's if he's even still the richest person. Here's how much time of the day does he have. Twenty four so we all get given the same amount of time. It's a matter of what you prioritize and where you build your margin. That's that's the only difference. Obviously he's a million and he has all the time in words like believe me if you know his story he's always giving to charities is doing something else but there's always time that we can build that that time of margin we can just step away yellow. Learning sepoys is hot is hot because we live in a microwave society. It's like all right. How much time do I have the microwave? You're waiting let's go. Yeah meal next one. Yeah so Y- step away actually now that you mention that margin time it's cooking. I just realized that it's cooking. Yeah Yeah I'm cool. In the last two years I started to cook and I've just realized that I like chopping onions barbecue straight after this decide on great. Yeah Yeah Yeah no because there's something chill about chopping an onion. There's a specific way that you're supposed to do it really You you you. This is such a Jesse thing. Disarming Hottest Square does definitely different ways to do it but like the chef way so like the coach Jack Pan Way. Whatever is you cut it in half and then you get your heart on you. Got The rose at the end and then you chop it in half millions without shopping all the way through it. Then you around you chop you chop halfway and then you get the knife and you rock back and forth and and basically what it comes to his little doses and so you can get really it's called. It's amazing it's called Meson plas everything. Its place French and Meson classes. I taught. It's the hotter. The meal was part of the cooking process. Where you're just cutting the vegetables you mincing the GOLIC. You're appealing whatever. You got to peel your deboning fish. You're dividing up your chicken. Whatever the case may be and I realize now that is the pot of the that I just really you know. I'm in Zion. I'm just doing my thing. I'm shopping stuff up. It's like a therapy that nobody asked for anyway. That's that's amazing because he often think cooking. Yeah whatever you're doing you're always thinking of something. But that's like you focus on something that has no relevance really is just chomping uses lately. There's a patent toss that everybody thinks is super annoying. Because it's like hurry up. I just want to fry eggs. Yeah not do everything. Yeah Anyway Anyway. Even I don't even think battle other they're mad at Tom's cold Jesse irregardless up into the PODCAST. Cooking is like yeah over the top. Almost all the top. He's doing something in the kitchen. If it's five o'clock in the afternoon five six o'clock that's what I'm doing usually. It's my wife doesn't really cook like shields. She's pretty open with that. I'm not like bagging. You're out or anything that she doesn't really like Cook. Show tell Ya Yeah. Yeah Yeah. And she's very happy to tell everybody that Jesse is the CO Keiko since you're right. Yeah yeah she's like. Oh Scott Hooks me all the time. It's great anyway. Love you honey. All right all right all right. Hey we'll probably five ten minutes But I would really just loved it. We're going to do one little gear shift in the conversation. I think we've landed the plane really nicely. Modum slowing down and onions. But you sort of you when you moved back to Australia. Initially you sort of started a new brand. Yup and I think everybody should buy some of your match so I happened to be wearing a shirt for those wondering because it's the only las clean shirt. I have a camp. Sorry so a friend of mine. he was. He's also church Pasta too long which is not too long so he moved to Christ church and we got to spend one year together before I moved back and so he literally live in the in the street parallel to me. So that said this is the backstory. And so if you're not long and again he's another guy that man straight up that's jam and he's just doing amazing things through that and so how that all started by him and I start at the same time and so people don't know that. This is the backstory to the backstory. And so him and I would. We just made a commitment in the business of allies. We said to each other. Let's commit every morning so like from Ottawa. Zodda every morning or maybe three mornings of the week. We wake up in the morning six. Am and we call it pound the pavement. Which is basically walked around our neighborhood and we just pray. Wow and this is this is. This is how this thing is so we set ourselves. We need we need margin and Alaska. Pray for each other for families frock for our churches but for the community. We live in and so in these conversational prayers. We'll walk six. Am in the morning. People would be suspicious about these two guys in the white neighborhood class shirts. You know what I mean. That's just walking around with just praying having these confessional prayers intercessory prayers and we're just praying our hearts and we said we're going to be better husbands who won't be better dads and then eventually canton notion of our God. What have you given us in allies that we are so passionate about with some? I guess what gift and we love it. They WANNA be able to use it as a platform to share you. And it's going to be you know and so we came one morning and I said so. What did you used to do as a kid? And he's like oh I used to really into graffiti. I said so what happened is I guess once I once I got into that area of graffiti and then came to church then. His incredible story long story short he basically went became a Christian. Then he went on. I guess I'll leave that behind because that stuff. I don't need any more than that reminded me of the bad stuff and then that conversation just often too well. Why don't we take the stuff? They got gifted us with that. We're really passionate about and used for his glory. Like yeah that's awesome so then we've started to plan how he could Re-engage with this This talent of his at the same time he said what about you? I said well ever since I was a kid. I've always liked to wear shirts or clothing. The add some sort of a brand or some sort of a message on it and even in high school and even through Avondale college out have a avid book While the Lecture Confession while my lectures speaking on whatever I would have a bulk and I think of of of t-shirt ideas that I could print one day and be able to you know so people can wear another feeling courage and then spied and so he said why. Don't you engage that against? I remember going into my garage pulling out this book that I've had since since since college days and I was like. Wow look at all the cool idea of of of a t shirt that I can create so we said well. Let's put it to prayer. We prayed I think maybe within the few days I said to him. Hey look here's the concept And all I had the concept was the word also says the salmon word which means brother to brother sister two and often we call each other. Bro Cosio may there's always like a surface level like it's a generic ain't now Z. Gone but from for an Assam language. -ocial is is. It goes deeper than that. It's actually looking out for that person because also it means that you have their best interest. You have permission to speak into their lives permission speaking to yours a says great idea. What's the sketch? Sketch the Dan and he said. Look I will pass this onto my brother. Who WHO'S A graphic design? It does this stuff all the time I said how do you? How much do you want me to charge is like oh no? He won't charge you anything just does it for the love anyway. His brother came back with all these different sketches. In the moment I saw the low yard like that's the one so then that was the first face I is is cool. I got the idea is like now. What are you going to do something challenging? It was like what are you going to do? The graffiti stuff is like a good idea on how well people received this so I said why? Don't you start small group so we both agreed and we have a few ideas starter? Life Group of some of the young boys in his in his church and he started he kicked off and he said what about us. Our I should put it on a t shirt or some sort and start sharing it out with people and so I did so literally before I moved back to Australia so the brand was actually started in New Zealand. And then so I got the the the tank top so the singlets printed then. I got to the point. Now what do I do with it like? It's just a whole bunch of box with a whole bunch of shirts. I need people to know about the brand and so obviously this is instagram. What in two thousand seventeen? So everyone was like looking for merchandise to wear for free. Somebody who do I know in the fitness industry again because it's in the area I'm passionate about everyone's wanting to be sponsored by sombre handle where free merchandise side just looked online and went. Okay here are some people. Don't know Miata name sought to reach out to them and so Every person that I approach funnily enough said Yeah. I'll wear it because it's free. Yeah yeah so so within. The New Zealand context alike. Footy plays you play for the warriors who play for the. All Blacks People in the fitness industry as well Who were just saying. Yeah absolutely that the where. It's as they as I was sending it out. I set up the instagram account. And also to create a little blurb about it and they would send me pictures of reposted Annetta gather traction and then from there. Because I weren't people like where can I buy then? I'd quickly made a website at the nets how he started selling merchandise. And so for me. On the on the website that the merced viewed page wasn't the actual merchandise the products page. Was the about section on any about section had my little face little profile raise this and raise that and then I had the definition of the word but in that explanation on my profile and a definition of the word. I said it stems from my values of of being a follower of Jesus Christ. He's he's a brother to me and so people would visit the light we get it. It's an as a connection to this cultural word but it's it comes from a place of my identities and Christ he's my brother and and Solomon Pat and so when and that's really how blew up And Yeah I was just inundated and the people that are reaching out so it was pretty crazy but Ryan burrow on Friday. Show yeah So message them out thing no way he's ever GonNa respond whatever he did you serious and inside. We exchanged numbers Yeah I ha- had his phone number as well and that was kind of cool weather in a sense of stuff it took a photo and then it just blew up from there really Liz from that and so now where the brand sits currently it's been on the back burner for awhile just because it's been so busy with the transition of work but Yeah school down. Western Sydney Macarthur Adventist School College. Macarthur out Western Sydney Highschool there. There's a teacher named Jordan Montana and he's a part of the P. Cohort and he's creat. He's taken his brand and his created actual program from it one step further so he's taken a brand and he's saying To his kids. Hey in order for you to be a part of this team you have to perform academically so if then you had the right the earned the right to wear this this. The shirt with the school logo has this print on it that I'm wearing but further to that it's not just about all I have to do it in isolation after do my bit. Then I'll be on the teams like as a also in the program you have to help you have to encourage that person and and share and like accountability in order for you to be done team so basically the whole school more or less kitted out with this also gave with the school logo on it and just recently. They had graduation at one of their seniors. We created a Special Jersey for him analyst. I was like a really really highlight for me so for me. At the end of day the catchphrases.

"So distracted by the question. I say your fitness but like what's your current role family just gives a little a little quick bio of who you are continuing to the fitness. So I'm currently a church minister for three churches not all three Simone Churches First Time ever I I'm ever in my ministry and so that's been awesome out so for those who are wondering I am someone yes And so that's been pretty cool for me to sort of navigate the space. It's new for me for my family but also new for the churches that are ministering to as well And having a past that sort of like it for them they still see me as the kid. But I'm I'm the I'm the children's generation and so that's been really interesting being able to have these conversations about church and faith in where and where they are yet have family Wife three kids three beautiful daughters five year old. Who's twenty six soon in the next? Few weeks three-year-old and a one-year-old. Wow Yeah so. We've got another three on the way. I said that's why she's like no. We kind of folded the wage that you get the ministers struggle street off the yeah. Yeah so so yeah have a family with me and I love him alone. Bits of being here at two Ridge. It's been it's been you know a little bit tone united with with everyone and everyone keeps has your family. I'm like don't talk to me about my like in crying every time I say I'm a real family man. Love it I've always really have always wanted a family And realizing the impact that I can make with my kids my family and say yeah. That's sort of like a nutshell. I do all sorts of stuff as well. Different areas of passion. But I guess we'll talk about it as we as we get on it. Yeah Yeah Yeah pretty much nuts. You own nutshell. Yeah I feel like Josh is like crushing hot on rare. Actually right right. When I first went to write. Ray was my are a lot more residential sister. It was like the man we were told to look up to and I looked at every single day. He's like so cool he does music. Well he's already finished as the great now. He's doing a teaching degree on top of that. Yeah Yeah he's always been my cool guy. So yeah I'm I'm fan boy in Moiseyev boy and right right good well. Speaking of Avondale shall we go to Avondale? Let's how did you end up at Avondale? So I'm assuming I mean you had a childhood. Yeah you had sainthood. Yeah you did. You went school you stuff. You played sports and then at the end of high school what what happened at the high school. I didn't really do too well in grades in the Queensland System Like it's Gordon O. P. It's not a drug for those overseas or inborn. Whoa anyway it's it's it's a grading system and one is the best grade of autumn to show what you've always a from ause but yet at twenty one is like you'd better not try going to university of that so. I got an eighteen and I was like so devote autumn. Yeah I sort of applied myself but I really didn't wasn't really focus in school and even in school. I wasn't like the top academic kid or even wasn't the popular kid. I was just like just just a normal kid flooding around the different cycles and so when I got that great I said to myself well. There's only one course. I can go into tape. Which is like a few steps down from UNI and so I went and did a diploma sports development again in the area of sport teamwork management that for about a year realized. Oh actually like working. A wife was sanitarium making vegetarian. Sausages links that was me and so did that for about two years. I put study on applause realize man. This is the money. This is awesome to have independence and yeah and so after a year. I'm a guy who I worked with his your typical or Cup Australian Dude. He's got a long rat's tail got a few. He's got tattoos all over his body in Australia smoker. Meaning it's it's like a fifteen minute break your literally. He'd go outside. Have a smoke. One of these breakthrough all outside just getting fresh air because we've been in satisfactory all day and we're just talking about childhood and schooling and I was talking about school and graduating pause. And he's like wait a minute you you finish high school night Yay guess. So you've got like an actual year twelve certificates and you finish school and like yeah and then then dropped. The you know a few explicit goes. What the expletive are you doing here? I'm like Oh yeah goes made this places and for you and so for me. I just realized that was God speaking through him saying okay. It's time to move so I. I really wrestled that notion I went back. I'm prayed and thought about and said okay. God Witty Want Me Next. Went back to study went back to life and I looked up because I was thinking to myself what something can actually help people and I'm really. I'm naturally gravitate towards young people any way that I can share my experiences my story that can help them. that's sort of the career want and so I stumbled into youth. Work sows residential owes at the prime of youth. Youth Work and juvenile justice side. Did the calls. And basically in being employed in the state government in Queensland as a residential use worker and caseworker as well that did that forbade eighteen months then in that process had that pulling heart. And I'm sure like you know the both of us saying hey this is motivating actually in going further and do something else. And how'd you swing? I was. I was probably twenty two so I came into avondale fairly latest one straight out of high school so I had a bit of time. So yeah yeah I I thought about a prayed about and actually dead. God I say God. I'm not going anywhere. I'm not going to college unless you give me three three people. Oh three obvious signs that I'm supposed to supposed to go so long. Behold within three days three different people coach said. Hey you should be a pass them like way quiet. Second person sort of similar things like have you ever thought about studying to be a minister. No God just one more left and long behold Yeah Maranda Hanta yes. A Mazda came and he spoke at our church and he said mate. You you you should really think about going down and I just want it right then and there was time so then. Yeah that's how I got to college and so I guess a little bit of a little bit of background into that so in my family so I have an uncle. Who'S A CHURCH MINISTER? I have two older cousins church and Sir hours then the third one in our family a wonderful really gonNa Ministry. So that's why I came to college. Well Yeah Yup Yup. Yeah let's like. Oh Yeah and So after college I mean you did. You did the teaching degree out of the theology degree but they sort of threw you in the deep end. Yeah massively sorry single swim and so two thousand ten finished theology then obviously had opportunities to work elsewhere and I said to the interviewing people panel people And I said Look Tom. I really love teaching. So I'm going to pursue that. Give me a year and then come back to me. So when I finished dozen Levin I had offers to do chaplaincy teaching oranges pastoral ministry and then all of which I sort of half hearted put my hand up fallen it was having conversations but then somehow weirdly enough all those Dole's close and nothing happened and then the other cocaine which was the day Ben one was basically there I was approached by South New Zealand conference in Christchurch and said Hey we think we want you as a youth director. I'm like You sure it should. I have like years of experience in a local church or may have you know accumulate some sort of experience before throwing me and they said no we. We know sort of the work you've done at college and we think it's you're the right fit so I was twenty eight at the time. So except that the court well then yeah moved to Christchurch in two thousand and twelve. Yeah and then those F. Five years five years as director and looking after few churches later on and then yeah so is there for five years. So that's how I sort of got thrown into the deep in. Yeah it was a very deep swimming pool. That's a long period of time to a you know in that in that job. I love go and they. Falungong but key. Tell us about the change. Obviously that first year probably would have been credibly challenging. Oh yes heavily. Yeah so you know. Walk into my office and It was it was funny job. I walked in and there was an elevator and so I was just oblivious. Okay maybe I'll just press the button going elevator. And then just the elevator ride with like five seconds was a speedy elevator. Got Up to the second floor those any two floors like I got out the and I looked at the set of stairs. Just douse like well. That was silly to you. Got The official. Welcome from from the President and secretary and all the United Cooler Porn people that work in an office Here's your office awesome so I walked into my office and then I just sat at. My desk looked at the wall. My computer just went coup. Never shared look at Modesto with my computer. I looked at the wall. So now what do I do? So then I'll sitting around and the lady who does my was my saito cameras. Hey Is there anything I can help you with? I'm like yeah. Could you the calendar like I was on the fly? She went grabbed the calendar. Let's talk a bit later because I think I had a few into a few talks of the president and so massive steep learning curve like does from from staring at a wall guy. In what do I do? Who Do I talk to? What's the what's the vibe on on the ground When you came to South New Zealand had you. Have you been to Christ church south before just once occupied twice once when we did the you know all I had been a schools we have a quiet and we travel traveling quiet? And so we went. We went to Christ church about fifteen and then the second time was just a year before a friend of mine who had a brother who was a chaplain at the school was looking for a guest speaker and so they called me Avatar. Flew over did the special weekend with the with the school then on from there. I think they just started talking with executive consol raise really good and at the time. I didn't know the previous youth director was trying to get back to Australia to be closer to family and Sir unbeknownst to me. That's that's how it will happen then so but it would be safe to say when you get into South Zealand. You haven't traveled to every church. You haven't met every church member. It's you're coming in with a little bit of knowledge. Little Bit Lear. That much yeah there and the cool thing about In New Zealand now camps are always in the beginning of the year January. So you're not waiting like some of Australian camps like mid or against the time. This was right in the beginning of the year so when I first landed basie within a week as meeting majority of the Church members of the Church. So it's easy to get around but yet in terms of knowing actually knowing people knowing churches those. I'd no idea people just walked past me and say hi then later on when I'm introduced in the front alike all he's afterwards people come back home so sorry. I just won't pass like I don't know who you are. You don't have a good those of our listeners. Who they might have an adventist or a Christian context but they might not know what a youth directed does like sounds like a pretty important but vague title. Can you kind of describe what your typical I dunno waco month whatever is easiest to capsulize in terms of the responsibility of your job? We just spend money doing fun. Style of basically oversee a lot of the youth initiatives such as like in a training leadership training for the different local churches if they have youth leaders in churches. We run Certain various events like sporting events like the ones do here in the North Island's so there's basketball weekend we get all the churches and youth groups together organizers speaker and whatnot and then there's the other part of my role was Look off the path on his and adventures. Yes fist terrible pathfinder. That's why Regine Month Uzi. Okay awesome and so that again was coming alongside. Some of our leaders doing training leadership training suffer them as well. And just keep on checking in with a lot about youth leader..

"Yes, wrapping Bob hope's work with the USO during world to really cemented his place as an entertainment icon. He hid earned the love of the troops. And the folks back home in the United States and the ratings for his show were really never better. Even after the war was over. He still felt a deep connection to his work with the military in nineteen forty eight hope was asked by secretary of the air force, Stuart Symington. If he would go entertain troops in Berlin who were carrying out the missions that came to be known as the Berlin airlift that is also known as peration vittles, which was running supplies to west Berlin via air after the Soviets had blockaded road access and hope. Agreed. And he put together a cast from his new. Lee reworked radio show, which was called the Bob Hope show any flew to Berlin to give performance which launched a long running tradition, which was a special Christmas show for the troops. When the Korean war started in nineteen fifty hope immediately wanted to get involved, and this time he wanted to take a much larger show a troupe of fifty people while general MacArthur initially wanted no entertainment groups larger than six people and no women entertainers entering the combat zone. Hope eventually got his way after using his contacts with the military to help his case. And this time I mean, it really was huge. We mentioned fifty people, but there were bands. There were singing groups they were comedians. Of course, there were writers that went on the road with them to work jokes along the way and Bob's brother Jack went along and kind of helped keep everything running smoothly. Actress and singer Gloria haven was the female lead of the show for the first half of the tour and Marilyn Maxwell was planned to move into that role for the second half. And they went first to Hawaii, and then the quadrupling atonal, which I probably. Ounce incorrectly. Guam Okinawa Tokyo and beyond and over four weeks. The singers dancers musicians and comedians gave a staggering fifty four performances. It's just about to a day. We mentioned earlier that they are sometimes doing five day. But when you think about how much larger this show was and just the logistical nightmare of fifty people versus five this was really still pretty impressive. They couldn't quite manage five day because they did not have that tiny nimble troop that they started with incidentally, one of the writers on hope specific tour. Larry Gilbert went onto create in produce the series mash, which was informed by what he had seen while on tour through the bases and the Korean war hopes involvement with the USO continued, of course, after the Korean war ended he visited basis he always did his Christmas tours while continuing his radio film and television career that is what always tells me he had he could have just done the USO stuff, and that's a pretty big fulltime career yet. He also was maintaining his regular at home. Non-military involved career. But it did take a bit of a downward turn for him in the public eye at least during the Vietnam war in nineteen sixty four hope in his troop headed to be at Phnom for the first time at the request of the defense department and the location for this show was a secret even hope and his colleagues did not know the base locations. They were going to be going to they I reached Saigon and when they got their hotel. There was a crowd outside and hope thought it was a group of people who were coming to meet him and the rest of the troupe. They had actually stumbled onto a bomb scene because the hotel across the street had just been hit. And some reports suggested that hope might have actually been the target. Yeah. There was a belief that he was at target because nobody wanted American troops to have the morale-boost that something like that would provide and just the year prior in nineteen sixty three president Kennedy had presented the congressional gold medal in recognition to hope for his immense service to the military. But of course, at that point. There was controversy on the horizon because of ESPN war was not supported by everyone in the US. Hopes ongoing work during the war and his friendship with president Nixon meant that. He was not universally beloved figure that he had been earlier in his career..

"With the promo code history. So in nineteen forty four hope put together a trip troupe to tour the Pacific theater that included Langford Romano and Colona as well as new players, Patty, Thomas and Barney dean and penny. Thomas was a very attractive young woman. One of the things about hope would do it's a little outmoded. Now is he would you know to youthful women out on stage say to the soldiers. This is what you're fighting for. And so she was kind of that person. But because of that things would sometimes get uncomfortable on the row road with men making unwanted advances. And so often Bob witches step in until the would be suitor that Patty was his girlfriend, even though that was not the case just so that they would leave her alone. This Pacific tour went on for six weeks starting on June twenty second nineteen forty four. And then the group headed to Australia while flying into Sydney from Brisbane. They're playing almost went down one of the engines failed and things got so dire. That the pilot ordered the passengers to jettison everything they could made an emergency landing on water scuffing across the surface and coming to rest on a sandbar, Bob and his team rattled dedicated performed their scheduled show that night. I don't think I could have kept it together. Hope also started writing columns about their travels in war-zones that are then published in the papers back home in the pep Senate show had hoped that they could do a live show from one of these one of these locations, but initially the war department stop that idea cold because he didn't want to give away locations to the enemy. But hope did he get to broadcast from an evil hospital. They did more after that. And the conclusion of the broadcast took a rather serious turn as he. Turned off his jokester mode for a little bit and made very clear to the people back home that the young men that he was meeting every single day or making very deep sacrifices really needed support. It became really common practice for Bob Hope to reach out to troops who couldn't make it to his scheduled shows a lot of times he would load the federal his fellow performers into jeeps. And then go find that these troops wherever they were out in the field and try to give them a bit of entertainment there weren't agents, there weren't assistance. It was just a handful of comedians and singers making sure that the men on the front lines felt appreciated and seen and loved yet. There are so many stories of him going. Oh that group tried to get to us. So they couldn't make it do you know where they are right now. And they would literally just run and go and spend an hour with them telling jokes and trying to lighten their emotional burden. Which is pretty amazing. They're literally you cannot count them. I don't think we will ever get an accurate count of how many times Bob Hope performed in the USO because there are so many of those little moments that were never recorded or documented and hoping company went back to Europe in nineteen Forty-five, though, the troops part due to exhaustion and also the knowledge that the war was finally coming to a close we're little bit less responsive than they had encountered earlier in the war. And that was a little bit of a Downer for them. But also, for instance, Langford was not there with them. She had moved onto her own show. There was some Hollywood drama around that about her moving into another another position. So instead Bob Hope brought gale Robbins into the troop and then halfway through the tour while the performers were in Germany, the Japanese surrender was announced on August fifteenth. And so hope- cancelled the remaining dates on the tour and went home that actually surprise some people. They thought he was going to go ahead and finish. Because it wasn't like they went we're done and everyone went home the next day. But I think it was just. You had reached an exhaustion point where it was just time to be like, all right? Let's back this up at that point because things are headed toward closure like the need of can we please just laugh at something is not quite as high. No, it's probably de prioritized over how fast, can we pack and get out of here. How fast can we wrap up every loose end the needs..

"So many many celebrities have been involved with the USO famously over the years, but none became so closely associated with it as Bob Hope initially a lot of hopes work entertaining US servicemen had happened on the radio at that point. He had become a star as a radio personality. But he he only started his film career in nineteen thirty nine the main gig. But he had going on was the very popular the pep student show starring Bob Hope which had started running in nineteen thirty eight and his first performance for an all military audience happened when he took that radio show at the urging of his producer to March air force base. That is now known as March air reserve base in Riverside County, California to record a live show, and he opened with a joke that would probably not play today, which was as soon as I got into camp I received a ten gun salute. They told me on the operating table. There is footage. Of him delivering that joke in the exhibit. Yes, it's much. No shades. Hollies comedy time. Not Bob Hope I hate to break into you. I do different comedy. Yeah. It's one of those things I wonder if the same joke would play as well today. Yeah. The whole topic is a little bit more frauds much different. But yeah, you can see him say it in that exhibit. Do it this show took place in gymnasium the gymnasium still exists today? And it's now called March fields sports and fitness center. And that facility had a plaque added to its exterior in one thousand nine hundred eight to commemorate the start of hopes ongoing with the troops that happened there and the.

"The group started to organize camp shows, and these are the ones that featured A-List celebrities who were volunteering their time and talents to support the troops. And to try to boost morale soon the shows became their own entity USO camp shows Inc. And that was a nonprofit organization headed up by the chairman of the William Morris agency, Abe last Vogel, the USO camps. Shows were also a huge success and by nineteen forty seven. There were more than four hundred twenty five thousand shows performed for troops through the organization, but the success of the USO actually also caused some minor issues of their of its own. So when the short fill Mr. gardenia Jones was produced as a cooperative effort among the US office of war information, the USO and metro-goldwyn-meyer studios in one thousand forty two it raised a few concerns with the army. So this film is described as a documentary, and it's really a promotional piece or the US. Oh, starring Ronald Reagan. It's the story of young man who joins the war effort and his mother's decision to form a USO censor this. All sounds fine. It's only thirteen minutes long. But because the troops in the film were portrayed as being so excited to enjoy the benefits of the USO and these benefits included showers, something that they had outside of the USO. They did not need to wait for the USO to come around to have a shower. The army thought this was Spain painting kind of a false picture of what military life was like. Yeah. They thought like both to the troops entered the folks back home, you're like how grid are they going to think it is even when we're not engaged any kind of combat if all of the men in this movie looked like the Tex Avery Ugo will. They're like what a movie. I can have some so a little bit of trouble. But eventually got worked out, and they were able to show it by the time. The first run of the USO ended in the nineteen forties as Tracy said there had been more than four hundred twenty five thousand shows and civilian volunteers totaled up to more than one point five million people over the course of that time its largest number at one point was seven hundred thirty nine thousand that was in mid nineteen forty three and in nineteen forty four the number of USO recreational centers maxed out at three thousand thirty five after World War t-, the USO was disbanded and then formally dissolved in nineteen forty eight. It wasn't long though before the Korean war began in nineteen fifty and on March twenty seventh of nineteen fifty one the USA was reformed and reorganized at the request once again of George C Marshall who at that point was the secretary of war and since then the USO has persisted, providing entertainment comfort.

"To all combine their resources to help the. Soldiers awaiting deployment pass, the time have a little bit of fun and get some much-needed social connection while they prepared for what was potentially very grim future. I had no idea until you sent me that line for this that this had been such a multi organizational effort yet like in my head. It was something that the army said we need this. And then it happened. I had no sense that there were so many different organizations involved. So on February fourth nineteen forty one. The USO was officially formed through a congressional charter and the first interational was called the United service organizations for national defense Inc. It's not a government agency, but a private nonprofit working in conjunction with the US military, and the idea from the beginning was that people regular citizens would provide the financial support system for this organization, and to that end a wildly successful fundraising efforts started right away these fundraise fund. Raising efforts were incredibly successful donations rolled into total more than sixteen million dollars in the US owes first year, and that is sixteen million dollars in nineteen forty one. That's not adjusted to today's numbers. It would be a massive number today. And the message of all of this was completely clear. This new organization was providing a safe wholesome way to keep soldiers stationed in the states entertained occupied. It was better than going to bars or just roaming around looking for something to do. And it was also going to help soldiers build and maintain strong ties to the communities around their bases. Because often they were not near their homes and the idea was when they were shipped off. They were going to have a deeper sense of connection to their home country. So both public and private spaces near the military bases became places that soldiers could go and socialize or get refreshments or pick out reading material all of this under the USO banner. There were even mobile USO centers that traveled to. The more remote locations, and they would take books and sporting goods and refreshments and film projections setups and things like that to the people that were farther out. Those are pretty amazing. If you ever see a picture of one, it's like this magical box. It just opens up an entertaining things. Fly out the you were really really smartly designed and things that USO centers were as promised kelp kept very wholesome. Indeed. There was no alcohol and most of the social centers had these unofficial chaperones in the form of older, married. Women who manage the logistical needs of the centers. But they also just kind of kept an eye on things to make sure no one was behaving poorly or unwholesome Louis. There were junior hostesses present as well. A lot of times you'll see them listed as the true draw of these centers. But they actually had to pass a screening to make sure that they were moral young, ladies and not likely to get any of these soldiers into trouble junior hostesses were supposed to socialize with the men only at the USO club and not outside of it that rules bent from time to time that was not a. I mean, any of you have connections to a family who maybe had a soldier that was in the military at this time. Probably have a story about some romance with junior hostess, it was not all in the center in that is fine. So the first permanent US, oh building was erected in November of nineteen forty one at Fort Bragg in Fayetteville North Carolina and that center is still inactive operation. And of course, the United States entered the war on December seventh nineteen forty one. After the bombing of Pearl Harbor and soon the young men who had benefited from the US owes hospitality while they were stationed in the US were sent overseas to fight and the USO went with them..

"Although it is now thanks to again, museums just like this. So tonight, we're going to talk about both of those things. This is a really fun topic for podcasters too because Bob hope's early career was all in radio. And so in many ways, he was working in an audio medium. And then it became something very different as entertainment evolved, any ended up with this whole other career. So first we're going to talk with just about a brief over. Overview of USO history focused primarily on its founding in its early years. And then we're going to talk about Bob hope's involvement with the organization I and primarily the the media is part of his stuff that will talk about is. We're war related, but we will also include his involvement in worse that happened after that and n beyond and also working back home and just as a matter of expectations management. This is not a comprehensive history of either of those topics because you would be here for two weeks. And probably you're going to want to go home and see your loved ones and eat and do things like that. So we don't wanna go on for days. But hopefully, this will provide sort of fun supplement one to the fantastic exhibit here at the museum and just a fun way to talk about Bob hope's dedication to public service, which continues to have long lasting impact today. Also, we're going to try very hard not to cry. I make no promises. You know, Tracy, and I both have fathers who've served I definitely want to once again. Thank those of you in the audience who are veterans for your service is one of those topics often chokes us up so race. We're going to try to be grown up and think about the things that make us not cry. But I it could happen. And I apologize in advance because it will get ugly. We're in the studio we can stop for a moment when we're in front of a crowd of people. We kinda got to keep on usually I'm okay in front of the crowd. But this one might be the one we'll see you guys might get the first live breakdown of. Which maybe you'll be into. I don't know you were there when it happened. So while the mention of the USO today conjures images of overseas groups of soldiers being entertained by Ayla stars, which is totally appropriate initially the organization was formed to keep the troops. Stateside more occupied. So in the fall of nineteen forty a US military draft was approved by president Franklin D Roosevelt and the United States as you all know had not entered World War Two at this point. But it was becoming increasingly likely in most people's minds that this was going to happen. And so over the next several months more than one million people enlisted, and that meant that there were suddenly these huge numbers of soldiers, filling military bases and aside from their training. They kind of had to sit there on tenterhooks and wait for this war to happen. General George c Marshall had served as a staff officer during World War One with the first infantry division under general, Pershing and. As he saw these basis becoming more and more populated in nineteen forty and early nineteen forty one he and other members of the military leadership recalled some problems they had seen with servicemen billing up their leisure time during World War One. It had been common for people to basically drink heavily down time. There was a a lot of sexually transmitted disease infection, then had to be treated by military doctors this led to a lot you'll see still propaganda poster reproductions of about all of that. And so general Marshall really felt like a structured system of entertainment and social services that were designed to fill the troops leisure-time could really cut down on some of the problems. They had seen enrolled or one and just as an aside there had been entertainment offerings for troops during World War One a number of camps had what we're called liberty theaters. And these were built by the commission of training camp activities and those theaters were built. After general Pershing head allegedly said give me a thousand soldiers occasionally entertained to ten thousand without entertainment. So in preparation for this likely entry into World War, Two general Marshall, and others were thinking that this was great to begin with.
