A Short Reading for Self-Reflection With the Work of Maya Angelou.
"Everyone who other week here we go. Last week so busy for me I don't know what it was like for you all, but I want to give a big shout out to the women for sobriety people who put on this incredible gathering last weekend their annual conference and I was lucky enough to participate as one of their keynote speakers as well as sit on a panel and talking about ref- with two friends of mine one very new ginger rather and Veronica Valley it was such a great experience, and if you all haven't yet looked into women for sobriety, I highly suggest it. As I approached what to do for the podcast today. I recognize that I probably need a little bit of a break. A little time to slow down. And I thought I might try what some of my friends have been suggesting in. That is to do a little bit of like. Meditative. Reading for you all. I thought I'd combine it with some of the things that I've been. Doing for myself, and that is reading some poetry and some essays around what we're going through right now as a nation and I'm using that reading time that downtime that introspection time to get closer to my honesty about. My racism how I look at myself how I've looked at the world have looked at others into come closer to that honest relationship with myself so that I can speak honestly with you, and other people and I kept coming back to my Angelou. She has always been a voice in my head, while I shouldn't say always I probably didn't know about her until she. told me about her, but like many of us her soothing tone, her wise words have truly worked their way into the fabric of my life so today. Sit Back, relax. And, I thought I'd two of her most famous poems to you? The first is caged bird. A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the or orange sunrays. And dares to claim the sky, but a bird that stocks down his narrow cage can sell them see through his bars of rage. His wings are clipped. His feet are tied, so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trail of things unknown, but longed for still, and his tune is heard on the distant. For the cage bird sings. A freedom. The free thinks of another breeze. And the trade winds soft through the citing trees and the fat worms waiting on the dawn bright lawn. Any names the sky is owned. But a cage bird stands on the grave of dreams. His shadow shouts on a nightmare scream. His wings are clipped and his feet are tied. So he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trail of things unknown, but longed for still. And his tune is heard on the distant hill. For the cage bird sings, afrita. The second poem I chose is still I rise I hope I do it justice? I am not a black woman, but I do empathize with the pain that I hear and the strength that I know that comes from this poem. You may write me down in history with your bitter twisted lies. You may trod me in the very dirt. But, still like dust I rise. Does my sassine is upset you. Why are you beset with gloom? 'CAUSE, I walk like I've got oil wells pumping in my living. Just like moons, and just like sons with the certainty of tides, just like hopes springing high. Still I rise. Did you want to see me? Broken bowed head and lowered is shoulders falling down like tears drops weakened by my sofa cries. Does. My harness offend you, don't you? Take it awful hard cause. I laugh like I've got gold mines. Digging in my own backyard. You may shoot me with your words. You may cut me with your eyes. You may kill me with your hateful nece, but still like air I rise.

"I mean they still looked terrible, but they told it in a way that kind of exonerated them a little bit, and so each of them is probably wrong, but you put together and I guess you take the overlapping parts, and you get right and something.

"Hello and welcome to round two of the parenting round about podcasts and Catherine Echo and I'm here with Terry Morrow. Hello, usually on this podcast we talk about parenting issues, but once a week Terry and I like to get together to discuss TV movies, books and other entertainment topics, because it's nice to talk about something other than parenting for a change. This week we are continuing our watch of the first season of Veronica Mars along with the Veronica Mars investigations podcast and I up. Today is season one episode twenty M. A D. which stands for mutually assured destruction, and this was very uncomfortable and Icke from start to finish. Yes not wasn't episode and also one that it's hard for me to focus on after watching the plot Palooza. That was a trip to the dentist so. Yes do we have to go back and talk about? This way will dispense with this quickly it. It was really. You know the person we've never seen. Before was very sweet girl named Carmen who had a terrible boyfriend named Tad who was an owner? Yeah, I don't remember if we've seen him before. Maybe we have who knows I can't keep track, but we just hope we never see him again. Yeah, I cannot add all keep track of the OH. niners. Sorry now so he has this incriminating video and he. Is Basically blackmailing her into not breaking up with him because he has this video and she. She comes to Veronica to say like I need you to get his phone. which has the video on it? Which I immediately? We're like well. That's not going to do I need eight. which is in fact what happened in the phone through this very elaborate scheme like involved several burner. But of course he had already saved a copy elsewhere, so there was no. There was no point in that. Right the whole thing so. Yeah Yeah. It's and then they went through some elaborate effort to make an incriminating and embarrassing video about him in ways that make us in two thousand twenty cringe flood. It seems to me that all they really had to do was tell the Naval Academy. Hey, this dude tried to blackmail his girlfriend into staying with him I taking and releasing to the public, a video of her clearly intoxicated doing things. That alone is character questioning no. Yeah obscured A. Plant A bug. Get him threatening her. And then you don't have to do all the other crap, but that would not feel an entire hour of television so..

"I don't know let's pretty commendable dog. Only it's still something to take care of but yeah I'm definitely a first time mom. My daughter's nine months in quarantine. It is intense and I don't have to do schooling. Which is you know. I think parents have to teach their children every day. Is You know that's difficult. But it's been a whole new experience for my husband and I like just being first time parents in quarantine and going through it. We're we're going to ask. That's pretty lonely. That's time when you want to share it with Social Connection. Your can't yeah yeah totally. Yeah it's just been interesting but I know you haven't been writing very much during this time but have you been reading anything. Have you found comfort in reading anything or is there someone I know? A lot of people have been like reading. Re Reading. Books are re watching their favorite movie or re watching their favorite show man. I really wish that I had had more success with reading. I I did a little bit. I I read the next installments in this series of Novellas so I think shorter has been easier for me in this time. Like short stories on the novellas reading. They're called the murder bought diarrhea so they're like pretty satisfied. Funny so I think Stuff that has humor in it. I've gravitated toward or like I said I mean so I had all these sitcoms that I had never watched the last season of like parks and REC and community. And I I think new girl I just hadn't ever finished them and I just watched a series of like last season's I think I've never wanted like say goodbye. Those characters before and yeah this time I was like all right. I'm going through it doing it. So that's what I've been doing. Mostly tying up loose ends. I love it. That's so great Kansas. You had said you were reading a book that you loved that you felt like really helped you not helped you quarantine but helps you escape a little bit. What was the name of it? I have successfully read one book. Guy went deep into a hardcore psychology book. It was a little much so then I went to wear the crawdads thing and that was a lovely book because all the chapters are also three or four pages so you feel very productive so I could. It'd be like Oh yeah. I knocked out of chapter today. Four year old. You have it one for those looking for relief. Good escape breed chosen runs. Because I'm reading it right now and it is perfect for quarantine because there are a lot of parallels with what's going on right now And the characters really interesting and fascinating but it is another world so you're able to feel like you can escape as well And I've just found it really wonderful for my corn team pleasure and I'm not just saying that Bronco because you're because you're on I'm being honest it's really been great well gliding. So will there be another this part of a trilogy. No there'll be a sequel and that will be okay. Great I can't wait and finally Veronica as a sci Fi writer. I feel like we're living in a sci-fi book and movie right now. So could you please rewrite some of this or rewrite the ending? Worry can you give us some guys like what would happen in the SCIFI world? Right now the hope that we need I feel like in a in a book this would descend into chaos More than it has already but the good thing about stories as most stories have some hope in them like even contagion like they survive right them but like lucky for us Real life is a book. So just advise. Everyone should not panic and trust the people doing their best work in science and health. Care all of those places and people who keep the Internet running right now. I would like to extend a special shoutout goes. What would we do without them? I don't know not not. Well thank you so much Veronica for joining us today from Chicago and we hope that you stay warm. Where can all of our listeners find you? Are you big on social media? Where can they look yup? Yeah I'm active on Instagram. The Ross books and then that's pretty much it I mean I guess I'm on facebook. Also hold on Veronica Ross but then my website is brought across books dot com. So we just enjoyed having you and we've been so excited to have you on this conversation great. Well I'm grateful to know that. She's been chilling on animal farm and Instagram. What is animal farm? I didn't know what that was when she referenced it. Is it a game? It's a game and of course I only know about it from buzzfeed because you know I love buzzfeed and check it every day like five times a day and take all the quizzes but apparently you sell things like turnips? And it's I don't know I don't really know what animal farm is. But maybe that's maybe I could get into it. Maybe that's my new thing during this five minutes a day you start and do Animal Farm A. Yeah you're right. I think someone that's had the amount of success that she's had for two just openly admit. Hey I'm just playing animal farm right now and that's okay it's really nice to hear There's just you know a lot of pressure report put on ourselves. I know I put pressure on myself every day to try and be productive and I think during this time you just can only do what you can do and man. I'm a big Fan of hers before but I'm like such a fan girl now and she's just so cute. I mean we zoom on this podcast and just to see how wonderful she is in person. I I'm excited to continue reading her books in I want that sequel to come out now. I loved hearing about how she read when she was younger. Like that was my like looking back. I wish I had been that kid. I like still. I hope that one day like Florence is just like the most insane reader. Who just like can't put a book down because I am so jealous. We a bunch of friends who are writers. And that's how they were when they were younger. I think it's a really interesting common thread through a lot of writers who are doing well. I don't think that that's like the ticket but I think it definitely helps. I think it's a cool thing to happen common. But I just didn't read as much when I it's nice that I'm finally trying to read more as an adult. I feel like I've read lot more now. I was just obsessed with beauty and the beast and she always walked in red so I remember practicing and trying to read the book and walk at the same time but I wasn't actually trying to read the book. I was just trying to be like bell from the beast. So there's a difference. I was busy making out with my jt posters on the wall. So you know you were far more advanced than priorities. Hope you have enjoyed this emphasis directionally challenged and we just love you. I really appreciate you listening. And we hope it brings you a little bit of sunshine in this kind of stormy time in the world And we will see you next.

"Complete the short survey. Now thanks right. Gosh that really does sound like a different era Ramon is. I'm glad that you're both here today. Because what really stood out for me in that interview was the importance of feedback to her writing showing your work to someone and trusting them enough to respond to their opinion before anybody else to that so much. Trust your both writers. Do you have people like that in your creative lives. And if so where did you find them? I do absolutely and The writer on whom I relied. The most is a novelist who I met at a party. Which is truly astonishing. Because I am forty two years old and I've never ever met anyone. I liked it a party and her name. Is Lynn steak or strong? She's a brilliant writer. She's a she's become a very dear friend and I think that when it comes to trusting outside advice it's it's a bit like romance. I think it's a matter of chemistry and sense of your own intuition about. Oh this is a person who's smart and who's going to be hard on me in the right way that it was really interesting when Veronica talked about searching for an agent and that the agent Shelton chose was the one who was much harder on the work that Veronica had submitted. I think that that is a good instinct that she wanted someone who she knew was going to be tough not complacent and really pushed her to do her best work and I think that approach has certainly served her well being. This is her seventh book. She's an extraordinarily young woman. She's a very accomplished writer. And I think that there has to relationship between her willingness to listen to advice. What about you? Isaac you like feedback yes particularly when it's praised so I mean when we were doing the world only spins forward Dan and I. We were that for each other. Because you had a CO author and because it's a it's an oral history you know. There was no original pros in it. It was very easy to be completely ego less about everything and so we had a very complicated drafting process where one person would draft the chapter. Send it off to another the other. The other one would restructure ended it. Send it back new just kind of do that back and forth until you had a chunk and then one person to pass on that chunk so it got very refined over the course of that and then of course your age and your editor looks at it and you get more feedback from there so with the new book I have to create that now and you know one of the people that I know I'm relying on is my best friend from Graduate School Who's this woman? Sally Franson who is a wonderful novelist? Who wrote a book called the LADIES GUIDE TO SELLING OUT? Which is a really fun. Great novel that I love and one of our professors at graduate school. The novelist Charles. Baxter has this like very very particular way of giving feedback that he designed and and when you study with him. You're as much learning how to do that. And how to read the way he reads as you are learning how to write and so we whenever we talk about each other's work we just lock right into that automatically and there's a shared vocabulary and then I have another friend the writer Catherine Nichols who I'll be sending the book too as well to get thoughts from because she and I have been talking throughout about the book. So Sally doesn't know anything about the book but we have a shared kind of feedback vocabulary. And Catherine. I've been talking about the book all throughout and so she'll be able to say like Oh. I remember what you were going for here and you totally screwed it up or you know whatever it is and so. Neither of them are necessarily theater. Experts are subject matter experts. That doesn't feel as important. That's definitely important. I am knitting together. A bunch of different subjects that individual people spend their whole lives researching you know so the life and work of Stanislavsky. There are many people who have spent their entire careers just working on that and so it is absolutely important to rope in subject matter experts and I have a couple of people on that list. I just have not actually made the ask yet. June your producer and so your work is creative but it's also collaborative and I wonder if you had some perception that creative work you know the the writer in an Garrett somewhere or the painter and a studio somewhere is just an individual pursuit. That doesn't entail collaboration in the same way that what you do does well. You know I have to say that I think the bigger bigger source of that feeling for me is that I'm an only child so as far as I'm concerned everything is a singular effort I'm search Kind of a MISANTHROPE. Truly that I just never quite believe that in. The collaboration is is as much fun as everybody says. I mean the word process which clearly there must be something to it because people it seems like all writing programs do it People praise it but it just seems like hell to me that say though that having been in critique sessions were people who have been in writer programs or any other program that uses that kind of process they really learn how to how to critique and Ho to express their critique so I truly appreciate it I just don't think that I would have the fortitude to put myself through it. Have you gone through that? I as an undergraduate I did I did not I did not go to graduate school So I am a writer without an MFA but as as an undergraduate. I certainly did. And I've taught in that format in the workshop format before and I think it's analogous to people who maybe have office careers because you have to spend a lot of time in meetings and you kind of quickly learn who in the meeting is just talking for the sake of talking and who in the meeting is actually saying something constructive or useful thoughtful or that connects you know and that will lead to actual productivity so. I think that you develop a sense. You learn how to read the workshop and you learn how to tell who has their own agenda and who wants to talk about their own workers at a blather on about some arcane point. Who actually wants to help you make your work get better but I also think just as there can be too many meetings in the workday. There can be too many workshops or too many voices in your head. When you're working creatively in enlisting Veronica talk about her work I also heard somebody with Supreme Confidence in herself and her ability as she should have. You know she's she's proven herself. Time and again she she had a way of talking about her reliance on other voices to improve and also to know that she is good at what she does. And I think that's a it's a balance that everyone has to find on their own as I said I didn't. I don't have an MFA. I'm not somebody who pursued higher education when it comes to writing but listening to Veronica Talk. I was struck by the fact that she's kind of acting as a teacher. Like there's so much advice in just listening to her describe her craft and I think there are so many opportunities now to hear creative people talking what they do and if you really listen thoughtfully you can end up learning something that you can steal for yourself and you don't have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars for a degree. I don't know Isaac. Did you learn anything that will be useful to your own work listening to Veronica? Talk about hers. Yeah like you remind I was really struck by how rigorous she is about her own writing and she seeks out that rigor from other people in particular. There's the moment where she talks about the structural problem she created for herself in the divergent trilogy and realizing that you've suddenly created this thing where you have to have a thirty page exposition. No-one enjoys reading that. And you'll how did you get in that place and and being able to think in that way of like well? What is the setup? That's led me to this place. It's a real clear sign of a kind of rigor about your own work. That I appreciate it. I also liked because this is something that I try to teach teaching and I I'm very fond of is how important imitation is to learning how to create. So you know she. There's a passage in chosen ones. Were she's writing a shitty medium profile of an attractive young woman right and so she went and she read a bunch of them and gotten raged about it as well. She should to learn how to write that form. And I. It's a thing I think about all the time that like the two things that inspire creativity the most at least for me are. Actually you know imitation and research which are of course intertwined and you can really see that. She had this passage that she needed to right and she went to those tools to try to figure out how to push ahead with that. And it's the thing that I try to drill into my students all the time because I teach Undergrad and an Undergrad. They're always taught about the importance of originality. I keep trying to tell them that. Like originality is what you do with the materials it is not the materials we all have the materials. It's what you do with them so you go out and you get them and you figure out how they work and that's how you're going to get better at what you do and so. I really appreciated that. Of course you love. That part is that because that's a bit like method acting isn't it? What she didn't do is try to think of a memory when she felt belittled by viewer and then channel that right so so but yeah. It is in a way like an acting exercise. I also really love detail because I think it showed again one of the things that I really admired about Veronica generally just showed her seriousness of purpose. And this desire to to tend to what is ultimately you know a small part of a larger hole with real rigor and that she was going to do it and think it through and get it done at the highest standard and. That's the senator that she gets up for herself and I think that's really admirable and just learning you know small things like learning that this kind of writing wasn't going to work in the same way as the other stuff was that because she needed to get into a new voice. Get into a new head every single time. You could just do one a day and you shouldn't try to combine them and just you know take that lesson. Don't push it. Just take your take your time and you know. Take yourself seriously. I think that is really good advice. And it's not always easy.

And I struggled some of course and I enjoyed that part doing artwork. But there's also a void in my life there's like in my Christian. Life has spiritually. I wasn't really growing spiritually and I think that's really important. 'cause we can't as a Christian spiritually we can't stay in one place in our maturity. We the speaker that I had went to hear. He talked about spiritual maturity and how babies they don't stay babies they don't keep just laying on their back or curling her that gradually start grabbing onto things and eventually they start walking with the help of apparent in than they have that confidence to walk on their own. And I think that spiritually that though that's what the speaker said we can't stay there spiritually that we can't this stay in one place in our Christian Walk. We need to grow. And so that's where. Kpi came in. I had went to their youth conference called northwest. And that's where I had a mike questions answered like why.

That can make my pies and my other sister was too young to go. She was inside and the members of my family they drink alcohol and so that was a really scary part of my life and I didn't see any good results of alcohol for example like my grandpa always came home when when he did come home drunk. He showed his anger and that's when his resentment came out. My grandma and my mom were abused because of that and then we hid away in fear until he would fall asleep and I just even. It's so clear even to this day. How scary it was. And I didn't think that was a good thing for your child. Go through and and I ended up having nightmares. I I'd be trying to crawl crawl up the walls or something trying to get away from my grandpa and finally my mom had met a special man in her life and we moved in with him and he taught us a child's prayer and that was when I was nine years old. During that time I went to Kids Bible Club. There's a missionary from North American Indian mission shared a kids club and I was told that I accepted the Lord but to me I was really wasn't sure of my decision. So at the age of Lebanon.

And he's the guy that didn't reject me. Lert really blessed me with an awesome Stepdad. He took both me and my sisters in his own and to me. I think that's really rare thing that a man could do. And he always took us out on Wiener roasts and made sure that we had fun and we had went sliding we went traveling. I think that was really special here. So much about broken families and kids being put into the oster homes or being separated living always alcohol growing up on the reserve. I've heard or see him.

What Was the First Cat in Space?
"In the nineteen fifties and sixties scientists around. The world launched a veritable menagerie of creatures into space. The idea was to gauge. The effects of spaceflight on living creatures in the hopes that humans could follow. The Soviet Union sent a stray dog from Moscow named Leica into space and subsequently the Pooch was honored as a national hero and Ham. The chimpanzee was famously buried at the International Space Hall of fame in New Mexico following his contributions to the US space program and then there was France which sent the first and so far only kept into space. She was in nobly forgotten until just a few years ago. So who was this hero? Cat Villi set was one of fourteen cats summoned to the French space program each cat electrodes implanted into their brain and all were subjected to many of the same activities included in human astronaut training. A French scientists decided to use cats as they already had a lot of neurological data on them at the conclusion of training. Philly set a petite. Tuxedo got the green light in part because she had such a calm demeanor and possibly because other cats got to Chubby during training though phillies that herself was a little bit of a Lo Fi chunk on October. Eighteenth of nineteen sixty three phillies set. Who was officially known as C? Three forty one was strapped into a Veronica rocket and blasted from Algeria. To nearly one hundred miles or one hundred and sixty kilometers above the earth she experienced about five minutes of weightlessness followed by the terror of turbulent spinning descent by Parachute. Just fifteen minutes later. The flight was complete helicopter. Crew dashed to the landing site through. Open the cabin and found really set alive and well two months later scientists rewarded her heroism with Ethan Asia. They wanted to examine her body to observe the effects of spaceflight. Then feel that was all but forgotten. France was the third nation to establish a civilian space agency and likely set is often regarded as an afterthought in the feverish space race between the US and the Soviet Union so much an afterthought that in the nineteen nineties when three former French colonies celebrated her story by issuing stamps with the cats likeness. They mistakenly turned her into a him by using the wrong name. Felix but thanks to a clever kickstarter campaign. The stories finally been set straight Londoner Matt Guy Stumbled upon the tale of really set and was shocked that she wasn't already properly recognized for her accomplishments. Guy wrote on kickstarter in two thousand seventeen. She deserves a proper memorial. His online. Please netted around fifty seven thousand dollars enough to fund a five foot tall bronze statue. That's about one and a half meters. On December eighteenth of twenty nineteen. The statue was finally unveiled at the International Space University in Strasbourg France.

"veronica" Discussed on WSB-AM
"Veronica waters was in the courtroom in November as the judge handed down the sentence many years to serve twelve in open for years had said he planned to speak before the judge sentenced him but for whatever reason the former policeman decided not to he was escorted out of the courtroom I'm handcuffed to be processed Olson could have got more than thirty years his attorneys are expected to appeal Cheryl Castro ninety five point five WSP all right to go in depth now I'm joined in the studio by Veronica water so was there gavel to gavel and WSP senior legal Lexpert Ron Carlson rod was out a few months down to kind of step back away from this case did you see that split decision verdict coming I certainly did shape because both sides had strong talking points from the ocean side the suddenness of the moment only seconds to react with the naked man rushing at him from the prosecution's side they pointed out Anthony hill was alarmed obviously no weapon apparently dealing with a bad metal episode and then they said other means were available to disable he'll like taser or spray I told Ron ago when we were broadcasting on the case it's no slam dunk either way and the length of jury deliberations seems to have borne this out I agree with you Ron in that the length of jury deliberations really did show how tough this was for this panel in what was so interesting about it is that whether prosecutors and defense attorneys wanted to address the elephant in the room or not and we actually did get some hint of this during jury selection race really did play a role in whether or not Robert Olson was going to end up with a full conviction on murder or not out of Radhika diverse jury handling this case yeah it was interesting that it was such a diverse jury several of those who were questioned said that they believed that police treated people of color differently but in the end it really did seem like when the final panel was seated we saw according to the juror who spoke out afterwards there was a racial divide on how people interpreted the evidence of course we did have a compromise verdict here those sorts of compromises in the jury room are always a feature of getting a verdict in challenging cases like this one and even though the Olsen verdict resulting in a compromise as you know it still took six days to get a result now one reason for that may be the juries in Georgia are not told anything about the length of sentence on any of the counts some legal experts criticize that juror should know how much time would defend against when they convict him that's the point of view is a lot of us can agree with how often does that happen that drawers kinda horse trade back and forth just to get something accomplished to get out of there you know what I've seen it twice in two years okay I've actually seen it in this case where the jurors despite having asked the question and gotten an answer didn't seem to realize that they could hang on some of the charges the murder counts which were what they were hung up on and still have those outstanding I think this jury thought that if they didn't come up with a verdict on those counts that it would just mean he got off Scot free they don't understand the prosecutors would have the ability to try it again side again last year in the text McIver case when jurors convicted him of felony murder but not malice murder what does this case tell you guys about juries convicting a police officer murder it is it is it really hard for a jury to do that it is one study of fifty one cases in Georgia officer involved deaths involving citizens during a ten year period only one conviction of those fifty one cases and the case in which resulted in a kind that was not even the shooting that was a taser death that's one more example of how difficult a task it is to get a prosecution and conviction of a police officer because juries see police as their protectors Ronnie have you heard from officers how or if this is change the way they operate I have several good friends who are in law enforcement and I talked with one of them at length about things exactly like this and yes he says it makes him very cautious and Ryan you may or may not know this they actually did in the cab county changeup the training for their officers to be aware of how to interact with the mentally ill one of the most powerful moments in that ship Olson trial was when chip also this training officer Lanny Anderson spoke he was the first one to respond after the shooting to the scene he talked about having been out on more than three hundred calls involving the mentally ill and he said I've never shot even one and some of them were naked and some of them had weapons but I think it also goes to show that it's not just training that is going to sort of amplify your response or dictate your response on the scene but it's also sort of who you are and we don't want an officer who's going to panic when they see a naked guy running through a parking lot Ron we haven't really heard much about of an appeal where does that stand there will be an appeal in this case but not of the sentence because Georgia judges have wide discretion over how the sentence however there will be appeal on some of the evidence decisions made by the judge during the trial all right nationally this one's going to be a I assume the big case of twenty twenty the college admissions bribery scandal Felicity Huffman took her deal got a few days in jail Lori Laughlin did not she's going to take your chances what we expect yes J. this will be the big case in twenty twenty Felicity Hoffman served fully eleven days well Lori Laughlin is now facing forty five years it's hard for her to get a not guilty verdict I think in the trial that's coming up because the man she used to put the Texan with southern cal turned it into a government informer before it was all done in the tape glory telling him if the IRS calls I will tell them I gave you the four hundred thousand for your underprivileged children foundation what's the strategy here yeah what would be the strategy there what how do you get out of this I believe there'll be a couple of lines of defense first and foremost I thought I was giving money for the school library or for a renovation of old main something like that and it Laurie Laughlin's case I believe she hopes that perhaps celebrity justice will prevail much like it did in the first OJ case there was a little bit of celebrity justice therefore Felicity Huffman too though Ron there was or she did herself a favor by throwing herself on the sword in saying I was wrong and the other department of justice of course appreciates those sort of approaches for the case she pled guilty and off she went to were eleven days so many to headlines clearly can the first part of the year but until then Ron running Avenue you happy new year to you Jake great to be with you and.

Boeing Will Temporarily Stop Making Its 737 Max Jetliners
"Boeing is going to temporarily stop making. It's seven thirty seven Max airplanes. This decision comes nine months. After regulators around the world banned the jets from flying lying following two crashes that killed nearly three hundred and fifty people. Despite being grounded Boeing had continued cranking the planes out of its factory near Seattle anyway but that is going to a change next month Dave shaper covers aviation for. NPR He joins us from Chicago. Hi David Good Morning David. So why this decision from Boeing. And why now. Well you know Boeing. Hiring is facing a couple of how hard realities one is at the head of the FAA last week told Boeing CEO. Dennis Muilenburg in no uncertain terms to just stop predicting that the F. A. A. Approve the return of the Max to service imminently. It's it's not happening. And maybe it's an effort to show an independent streak that the agency After the agency was accused of being too cozy with the company but FAA administrator. Steve Addiction told Wallenberg F the FAA sets the timeline not bowing in agency safety. Experts will take all the time they need to get its analysis and testing of Boeing's fixes for the plane done right and won't rush the plane into a return to service. I'm hearing that means that the plane will likely remain grounded until at least February or March and it now appears Boeing's getting got the message. Well how much of it also might be the company just realizing how much money they were losing. They were continuing to make these planes and not selling them. Yeah that's the second hard reality Boeing is facing you. Could they're burning through cash. Etta significant rate according to some estimates commits about two billion dollars a month the company did slow production a little bit back in April reducing the number of planes produced from fifty two a month to forty two but now it has about four four hundred finished Max jets just sitting in storage at cannot deliver them to customers and cannot get final payment. Richard Lafayette is an aerospace industry analyst for the Teal Group. It's been really painful for Boeing. They've been maintaining production paying suppliers to build fifty two per month while they build at forty two per month and not bringing in revenue. This is very painful From a balance sheet perspective. You know it's important to note David. Just how big of a deal. This is for Boeing seven thirty-seven Max is the best selling commercial airline in airliner in the company's history it had five thousand orders for the planes before it was grounded and it's a very profitable was anyway a very profitable profitable part rob product in a huge part of the company's future tied to this plane. Okay painful for Boeing. What about the people who were there? David I mean. This plane is assembled at a plant in Renton Washington outside Seattle. Twelve thousand people work there. How are they going to be hit by this well? Boeing is saying that there will be no furloughs and no employee layoffs at at least at this time. statement announcing the decision to suspend production says the company plans to have affected workers. Continue either seven thirty-seven related worker. Be temporarily temporary assigned to other Boeing factories in the area but there still is a fair amount of anxiety in and around the plant. We had Ashley Gross of Member Station K.. And ask around about about the impact. She talked with Veronica Medina whose family owns a Mexican restaurant called Toreros it a strip mall called the landing right across the street. From the huge Boeing plant. Well obviously being right here at the landing. It's very significant. We get a lot of lunch. Crowds we get you know. Renton General Very dependent on Boeing's wellbeing Medina says even if the employees aren't laid off if they aren't going in and out of that factory across the street her business may suffer. Well obviously it's going to be a head I don't know how big but I think as a city as a business owner. I think we will feel let David. What about the economy? The economy is gonNA feel here. I mean you've got to have the supply chain that that feeds this big factory. There could be a lot of sectors. Let a companies that could be it could be affected. Yeah I mean there's a lot of companies that could feel this more deeply not so much in Seattle but in places like Wichita Kansas where supplier spirit aerosystems zero systems makes the fuselage and other parts 737 Max and scattered out just around the country. But around the world suppliers Boeing may do something to help. Soften the blow for them. But many of these companies may be forced to to furlough or layoff workers themselves. It's not clear how significant that impact may be N._p._R.'s. David Schaper in Chicago. Thanks

Visiting Virunga National Park in the DRC
"I'd like to welcome to the show. Neil from Ireland. WHO's come to talk to us not about Ireland but about Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo meal meal? Welcome to the show thanks. It's great to be here now. We're talking to an Irishman about an African country. What is your connection with Virunga National Park Mark with DRC? I came across Franca. Maybe like a lot of people scrolling through next lakes and came across to Verona documentary was Oscar nominated donated a couple years back Across and when I watch this and I saw the conservation work being done there. I kind of felt a nose and the theon says well ever since we've been kind of keeping tabs on the park keeping tabs on to charity in the work. They're doing kind of daydreaming about coming here someday. Someday and fortunately a couple of months ago we got to choose and spent eight days in the park. And if we I wanted to put it on a map we're in the DC. So were in the western half of the southern part of Africa and where we within the Democratic Republic of Congo Virago. National Park is Roy's on the eastern edge of the DRC. And if you were to put on a map you're pretty much in in debt. Exact heart of Africa. So there's a very large cece Ghouma which is about a million people and the park ruins north from there along the border with Rwanda and Uganda excellent. And why should someone go to for National Park. Okay so I just Kinda tree. Main reasons people generally go to vulgar. I I swear I is the picture postcard. It's near Dongo Volcano. So for those of you don't know it's one of the only active laugh lakes Exon art so it's very very unique thing. I think there's only seven in the whole globe so that's a really big attraction the second power to to this is melting guerrillas. So again there's only three places on earth you can see mountain. Gross National Park is one of those and then finally when I'd say as Virunga is one of the oldest and degrades national parks on earth and wounded world's gray conservation projects and you can visit it with almost no other tourists so it's really a chance to see a great African National Park pretty much share says and when you say there are only a couple of other places you I can see mountain gorillas. You happen to be a stone's throw from them when you're in a national park absolutely so not grits. Basically the only live in the mountains and those mountains straddle the Rwandan Ugandan and DRC barter so within an hour urine in basically it's the same guerrillas and they actually do pass back and forth across the border and thrown guys just worn out those treat locations but there's some differences in in terms of price ace and the size of the group. You'd be with so can talk a bit about this when we talk about grits Deidra okay but really that areas why. I wanted to make sure that people understood is where we're win. We're all the way over there to the east. That means we're really just across the border from Uganda. What kind of are you going to recommend for US earth too? So I know gingerly generally on your podcast for kind of a week. Itinerary and Veronica some flexibility when we're going as far as Africa absolutely and I guess a lot of guests if they go to Africa. They're likely to maybe tag. This onto a maybe a wider trip or wider safari. Sorry so Veronica is actually very flexible so anything between kind of two days to eight days. You're going to see quite a lot. And there's kind the four main sites within the park and depending on your interests and preferences you can mix and match them so if you really only want to see the volcano you can be in forty not eight hours if you want to do everything about eight days and what we did was we. We spent quite a lot of time. There we dare nineteen days so we did everything quite a bit of detail and we can talk data entry but you can abs- dookie slice and dice it to fit your time-scale excellent and where should we start anyone. Visiting Virunga is going to be coming through the lower city of Goma. Now Goma is kind of an interesting place For want of a better. That's word so it's it's a city of a million people would huge number of those being UN peacekeepers and NGOs. It's always been in the power of the word. That's a little bit chaotic. And I found when I was looking at open. Your your listeners. Might find interesting is if you go on Google alert. There's two the twin cities. Most people will come in from Rwanda your fly into Kigali which is only about two to three hour drive into the border crossing and there's a town Cassini and Rwanda which is more twin the goal Matt Iran Roy's teacher. There's no real clear bar between the except if you look look on Google alert you can. Even if there was no barter on the map you could absolutely tell the difference between Rwandan D. R. C. On one side of the dimap map. There's these beautiful houses. Lovely Straight Roads Gardens Greenery and on the other side during his chaos absent whose that notre chaos and to be clear. You're you're side absolutely but chaos in isis going. So is an unusual place. I think the feeding on got there. It was kind of POMPEII in waiting. So the first thing that would really strike you when you get into Goma is developing near Dongo frames your the entire view so you look out over the city and in the very near distance is an Uruguayan. Go at eight. Tenths give out a a lot of clouds of smoke pretty much all day round and that's not a fake sewing. Volcano is very much active and erupted in two thousand and two was the most recent and and Flow True City caused quite go to visit damage. You'll still see when you drive through to see see places where say there was a two story house house and now the entrance is on the first floor because the whole ground floor is now basically solidified lava. It's an unusual usual spot. It's not one that I suspect. Most visitors spend any great toy man so like false wego barter and we a mess our guide who took US pretty much true Goma without stopping so we drove through the city. It's perfectly safe during the day but you kind of I think the most interesting power to the city is just to see I think for anyone who's experience either hasn't been in. Africa are as experience maybe more to safari lodges and that client side. It is a good introduction to maybe some of the more real day to day experiences underground it would awake in your senses for better or worse. But it's very interesting place to pass through and you mentioned meeting your guide. How did you find a guide for this trip? Spoiled it being quite a complicated power to the world. This was probably one of the easiest trips. I've ever taken so to go to the National Park because of the security region the organize everything centrally. So your point of contact would always be the national park and they have a specific tourist department that looks after all logistics. Ice was wanted under things that concern me day. One was a land border that I have to cross in Africa and does not always a reassuring thing to be doing so actually when I was underground founded wonderful laws when you cross the border into the DRC. There's actually a very very modern building thing that was actually funded by Howard. Both I think is one of he wanted years. He does a lot of charitable work so he actually Biz modern. Warren Buffett. Aso's Sorry Actually Warren Both its broader or other. Okay yes so. I think he's actually a partner in the business and he's also equally successful at he's actually hugely involved in Goma and national packets of and as has done amazing work. And actually when you go around here you'll see lots of signs bearing these names where he's foundation has done. Great work to actually Barda. Crossing itself is fantastic. It's like a modern kind of airport tight building and wanted conditions. Wins all of this very fancy building being used was that for the National Park. Were actually given an office inside in the Border Patrol area. So when you go in you don't meet Garrett's you don't meet people checking your passport. You actually meet your tourist. God who will take her passport. Kgo Eight eight-point scenes and organize everything for you while you sit comfortably in their tourist office so for anyone who's nervous about crossing borders navigating like that this is absolutely nucle- The easiest thing in the world it's not something to be concerned

"This story is very funny because I don't really understand what happened. Uh and everything published about these public it's like you. Did you like Google it around to me because I only read the Daily Mail and I got to say it's very Australia like Dinsdale Australia. It's for Australian people. Only I feel like we're not meant to understand it. You know okay so the Veronica's remember the Veronica's because I really I remember that but I was listening. I was sitting on the couch and I was listening to Veronica's music with Josh and I was like I don't recognize any of these songs. I thought maybe one would ring a bell go round bells but one of them would be rose for awhile member and they had like announced yesterday. Remember that last time we talked about the Veronica's Veronica's are two identical twins which is really funny to me because because they're like different heights and they don't really look like I mean they look like they're licensed heating and Sarah but not good cleaned exactly and they're more they're more punch on yeah and they're Australia and cerebral Australian okay. They're both not named Veronica. No Oh you know what their names are. It's the funny I always forget that their names are not Veronica. Not Cronica know their names are a lot. I get this wrong. I just had I just had it there but like their names couldn't be Veronica. Their names are their names Jessica and Lisa just the most most basic names there Jessica lease buy Veronica's because of Heather's greetings and citations you heather now. I'm a Veronica because they said we're not heather's Veronica's but then they got basically a cease and desist from the archie comic people because they were like you can't be the Veronica's because we have a Veronica with attitude and the Archie Universe and she's a musician and you're stealing our stuff and so. Do you know what they're compromise was back when Branca's came out and then the people were suing them now a a settle. I'm quitting wikipedia. A settlement was reached that included across promotion deal including an appearance in an issue Veronica series like the Veronica's comic books the issue Veronica 167 released on March First Twenty six two thousand six featured the Veronica's into feature story what's in a name in which they meet lodge performing Riverdale and spend a day there so the settlements settlement settlement they put them in the Archer Universe for one for one issue was up to that's good for the Veronica's to your parents. It was good for them so in the settlement week hold on I'm just not done with that so in the settlement the way that they had to clear this up was that in the world of Archie Comics Veronica's exist and they're a band that separate Rabanne Dan Monica was once that was confirmed in revealed by the Archie comics than it was okay for the Veronica's to exist as the Veronica's outside yes they were in a few issues and in the next issue of Archie and friends it was revealed. That Archie is the Veronica's biggest fan. No He's not they wrote it all well into the Veronica's and the Archie universe. That's like flattering to the Veronica US versus them having to be punished for this in a way so just again Lisa that Veronica's sure. I hate that though we're on a plane just this is honestly ninette all over again. It's like Jessica Lisa. Lisa Veronica's Jessica and Lisa Veronica's are on the plane and they Qantas Flights Qantas Airlines they were sitting together and one of them put their bags in the overhead. Then one of them had a bag in the overhead bin that was like facing the wrong direction okay sure and so at one point before taking off a flight attendant was like Hi Veronica. You have to adjust like my name is Jessica do you. You have an Lisa. She was like you have to move this bag because it's not facing the right direction and she was like can you help me out. I'm only five one and and so in the caption she goes. We're only five one because they're identical twins and so she's like can you help me out and the flight attendant says that's against policy. We can't help you move it and which which may be flawlessly attendants do when I'm on a flight as they like shit around fucking move bags. I'm GonNa read the caption where they reveal this. The female CMO flight attendant one at Lisa's bags around. Lisa asked the attendant if she didn't help a sister because she couldn't reach it were only five one. The attended said it was against company policy and a lovely man behind us helped instead instead so they go off then right before takeoff. everyone starts getting upset with them and I'm reading. I'm quoting them again. It says the flight attendant brought me over to the manager and pointed us out he proceeded to lecture about company policy. We listened and asked for their names. They refuse to give them their names and announced they were going to call security the honest Veronica no but the lease on Jeff The staff didn't refuse to aunt okay the staff refused to give the Veronica's Lisa and Jessica their names and then they got mad and turn on the recording but I understand there's so much missing here so so it's like okay we move the bag then they got mad at us for reasons that they're not explaining so. I feel like they're leaving out details. Can I say what do you think happened and so people are saying that they're promoting their new reality. Show will sure here's what I think happened. They were filming the whole time and the P. They came over and they said hey you can't film on this flight like you just can't film and then this and so they don't have the film L. had nothing to do with the bags and they're saying we only started filming when we got lectured or started getting yelled at by the by the by the plane cops or whatever by the Lane Lane people but I say me say that they have been filming the entire time and other people on the plane were like why are they filming and then they came over and said please stop filming. That's that's a good piece of speculation on figured out because I was like none of this makes sense. Why were they mad? They're not revealing what they actually got in trouble able for your right so it it makes sense that they might have gotten in trouble for filming. Listen to this so would they win on. They went on Australian talk show that's hosted by comedian and the talk show. Oh said this listen but I believe there is a project that you're working on coming up and some people assignment. This was a publicity stunt is that this is a legal matter not complicity son. Does it help that it's giving you some publicity no so we didn't even get into the reality show that they're filming. That's going to be on on MTV later this year. which is quote the show will be shot and produced in Australia and will depict their day to day lives in the lead up to the release of their next album which which makes me think that you're spot on Lindsey just their day to day lives. They're releasing their album. They get in trouble because they're so famous. The album comes out and early twenty twenty this show premiers at the end the year and do you know what it's called. It is you're gonNA rip your hair. You're going to read your hair out. It's called Jess and Lisa Veronica's fucking a we stop Lisa Colon the Ranas all right. No nothing's GONNA have US Americans know who they are anymore. So I guess if like leading leading with their real names is a solution or something. I think it's only going to be on MTV Australia. TV's well. That's what they're trying to make up I I that's what they're trying to.
Is the Women's March Only For on White Women?
"We got some interesting things to talk about Zaire Bill. Our friend was invited onto the board of the women's March. She was so happy. Ah I was so happy so happy and then forty eight hours later they kicked off. This is not Zara measor. This is our friends are Balu. Executive Director of the Council of American Islamic Relations in San Francisco's chapter and forty eight hours later woman's March W T.F. You're were instagram and what were your feelings that the woman's March is apparently not for me yeah. The woman's March is saying that we can't advocate for the lives of Palestinians anymore. That's why she was kicked off. I mean like the women's March always has these ridiculous right wing trolls around them that are manipulating all the women that are involved with this but basically what they were doing was they dug into his Arab News Archive of tweets from many many years and Zari Stu tweet extensively and they pulled up all of her Palestinian tweets and they use that as a reason to kick her off the board just so terrible I think like we're just like a we're. We're in this age of culture where people are digging up all these things from past in like you're being held responsible for something that you said a long time ago but it also be like everything's are said is facts you just there was nothing she said that was wrong but because we're in this day and age where it's all about like colliding people's tweets on fire in calling out people. There's no room for reasonable discourse. I mean this goes beyond reasonable discourse of course to me. This is telling me what discourse is period yeah because you're telling me that I can now no longer talk about apartheid existing in Israel which does yeah there are apartheid supporters yeah. You're telling me that I can't talk about that by. Wouldn't you want that kind of diverse perspective on on aboard anyway. That's the whole point of the women's. March is bring together so many radical voices and then have a dialogue and you just kicked a person off the board who is so ready and capable to do that. It's the white women's March. You know that's basically we all know. That's what the subtext is yeah yeah but you know what. I'M NOT GONNA. Give white people that I don't know something about that feels like you don't get to have that. You don't get to like well. I liked about what direction Raja was saying was was that she on her twitter account. You know how they were using the American flag hit job woman as the poster at the women's March okay so you know how on the poster it it said we the people and this is our greater than fear and then one of directions followers edited the bottom and it said submit to fear which is so oh well done well done okay. Here's my beef. There are a lot of women who are white woman who I like an are my friends. I would preferred a label it as the Nancy Pelosi March. It's not the woman's march anymore. It's the Nancy Pelosi March because to me Nancy Pelosi stands as that older generation and that old way of thinking period regardless of what generation you're from that is like moderate conservative trying trying to be Democrat saying things like I'm not GonNa try to impeach Brett Cavanaugh like to me. That's the same person I don't know I think for me. The women's March just seeing everything the taxing hell into starts tour had to leave the women's march on July fifteenth along with two of her supporters Bob Bland and to make a Maori like just the Lynch mob rightly. There's like Internet mob mentality to attack them on the Internet. Get them kicked out of the women's March now they're trying to lake reframe themselves and finally other people to replace them with in Zaire. Bill would have been like amazing perfect there and then they they don't want her because her whatever so it's just like. Zion is being kicked out of the women's. March is like a reason for me to see this movement and say like this isn't for me. This is not a space for me. This isn't a space for Muslim women. Stop fucking using our Muslim women images in your protests. If so clear that you don't want us for our values are if feels like that's what they want. They just want to like a vision of us. They want the symbol of his job and to protect US and save us but they don't actually want us to actually have a voice. I think they want our voice along as it sounds like a moderate conservative would've voice that doesn't support black lives matter that doesn't work against the moderate conservative movement. That's trying to normalize what trump's doing yeah because here's the quote that's making me feel that way. The same article wrote unfortunately Belu's racist tweets do not stand alone. They seem to reflect the views of of most prominent Muslims in America on the left. What the fuck does that mean that human rights violations by Israel against Palestinians Finian's is not okay. That's a left idea. That's a left idea yeah. Apparently that was a stupid article. I mean when you say that like apparently it's not for us. It sounds like that's exactly what they're fine with saying. I don't think that the women's March can really recover from this which is unfortunate because I think like I think about this a lot. In movements we do do so much work to like move people. They really feel like at some point like the women's march was a movement right like everyone showed up on the capital not because of an organization but because they wanted women to be there I think about this about black lives matter and I think about this about the civil rights movement. There's always like you know Oh. Maybe an informant that's like making this shit like fall apart and there's always like government and FBI NCAA and like. I don't want to be conspiracy theorist but there are like it's not a conspiracy when it's like real movements are always being brought down because they don't WanNa see us rise up in. I feel like that's kind of what's happening here and like ah I think we have to deal with that in a real way. Yeah you know because that is of course going to be there tactic. Why wouldn't it? I feel like that's where we are in the women's. March like this is like it's so so clear this organization has fallen victim to this tactic and like I hope that feeling that people had on election day or inauguration day of showing up. I hope people don't like field. He'll dismissed by that feeling that power of being at the protest these are the splits that they're going to continue to try to create is like the question of like split loyalties and you know. Who Do you stand with you know. Are you one of us all the way until they've moved toward fascism yeah dictatorship. This is their job up. This is what they're trying to do. I think we have to be really blunt about that and know that and work really consciously up against it yeah also are we infiltrating in their meetings and like being like saying as they in these this conversation like when you say they the unified dark money right are we going to. They're like men's activist meetings men's rights activists meetings and like being like yeah men's rights and also I wanNA listen to women's sometimes. I don't feel feel like that's my role in this movement but I'm hoping that you know I'm for hire to infiltrate. I don't know if you'll be able to pass us in these spaces. I'll just go with my white husband. Oh yeah well. I mean like literally like you send your husband and your good. No I want to be there. I just don't I don't know you think you won't work.

"T._v.. Movies that they would do a set number of them each year and like and have them be specials that I think is perfect for this. But how much time do I want to spend with the character admittedly a character I genuinely adore and a performance that is so insanely charming that only like this character would not work without Christian doing it. I don't think <hes> and without the the balance with Enrica Call Tony is like the whole like the the there's a the reason certain people are back and certain other people are not back and like the energy of the the ensemble is very well calibrated <hes>. I don't know if I'm interested in in in what a weekly T._v.. Show needs put through the Lens of of Veronica Mars when aid cares more about genre than and it does about any sort of satisfying character development well this gets into the larger issue of the show in of itself. <hes> I think if you because of the fact that we've Seen Veronica age notice I don't say grow up age yeah yeah then we expected degree of character development on top of the fact that the show the franchise is serialized <hes> to the point where trains media a stories factor into season for like all the stuff. We've all season four. Where are we will is when we come into season four is covered in books uh-huh because when we leave in the movie he's in a very different place? When did we come back to him here? He's in a very different place from where he wasn't in the movie movie because the movie is sorry. The season four is hell bent on sort of a hard reboot artery set up a lot of things <hes> that we expect character growth we expect change <hes> whereas if we started Veronica Mars in season one here her <hes> and we just did like even like not even just in serialized storytelling where Veronica is who she is here the degree to which we would expect change. I think is minimized to a certain degree because then it's just like it's Rockford in serialized Rockford and it's not to suggest that rockford is as borderline abusive as Veronica is but he's also not the best and I think that's kind of where it falls is like because of our expectations because we're Veronica Mars sits within the arc of television and development in history. We expected character development well even just because she started as a teen high schooler. Yes and that's what I mean yeah. We've watched her grow up and as a result there should be some degree of change that has occurred and like the idea that she grew up early she grew up quick quick because and and and like yes I've not that's not lost on me. The idea that not brought that makes sense but also I mean hopefully fully very few of us are the same person now regardless of the level of trauma. We've experienced that we were you know in high school and this this could still like the degree.

Everybody I know Kirkpatrick and that's right marshmallows. It's time for Veronica Mars season four. We're GONNA dive in with the season as a whole we will keep things spoiler free <hes> or spoiler light. I guess for the first part and then we're going to dive in with the spoiler at a certain point but we'll give plenty of notice <hes>. I don't know how like this many weeks on you. Don't already know the big thing if you care about Veronica Mars but just in case this you know there's there's a finger to that are pretty big. <hes> we're going to hold off on talking about that. I so let's kick off with. I guess let's kick off with how how is Veronica Mars held up in your mind and in your imagination since it went off the air like I don't remember the movie of them being like Oh. This is fun and not very very good but you know still kind of so. I don't really remember the movie much at all. Where were you at going into season for so I didn't and remember the movie very well so I watched it and you can watch it <hes> interestingly not on Hulu Button H._B._O.? Interesting and I have thoughts about what all of that means needs so you can watch a movie on H._B._O.. So I did that because I haven't watched it. Since it came out <hes> I rented it when it came out because I did not fund the kickstarter because that noise and I went oh this is fun. This is a terrible movie but this is fine on and also how this is also the moment I think when collectively culture went oh strong looks really good when he's cleaned up but I think just generally early it's good fan service <hes> but it's just kind of they're kind of thing and it gets us back to Logan as away away from his which is really what we all wanted well except for me because I'm team Piz but so is fine but like I was actually thinking about this today and I was just like I feel like I really know the first two seasons pretty well but the third season I think I've only watched it once and that was when it was on TV. I haven't watched again since so like I don't know I don't know so but like in my brain apart from the bad movie this is a really good show and it's one that I really love. It's one that I really enjoy Kristen Bell's great. It's got that good neo noir vibe in high school college coach and it's got all these things that I've really liked. 'cause I'm a sucker for a good in war and so that's kind of how it's held up is like this is a good show that I keep thinking about revisiting but then there's so much so just I haven't. I don't feel compelled to after watching season four that much either I have so many questions about the show's his future after season four and I love to going thinking about the theme song in my head of Oh. We used to be friends longtime sometime ago but maybe I don't WanNa think about you anymore. Except for the fact that I'm pretty sure I would still watch a season five yeah just just to see what happened <hes> and see what calibration that the show is making intimate season..

"I'll say in terms of <hes> how the movie felt like ultimate Fan Service. I felt like the ending of Veronica Mars Season Four was a cruel jab at fans and in a way that was completely unnecessary and at first I was like well. Maybe I'm just too much in the hot the mindset of of being that fan and wanting this particular outcome for Veronica Mars because I've been following it for so many years but then I thought well. I don't think that Roy Thomas Thomas the Creator and writer <hes> is seeking to wrangle with these <hes> we from trauma that comes from the consequences of this ending in <hes> in a way that I think it would deserve it just felt like a cheap <hes> sort of shock value ending doing so I really dislike that ending and it kind of tainted for me. What I thought was a really solid season? <hes> I did have issues with with some of those red herrings and the play Coutts. I did think that patent Oswald was little over used to the point where you know he. I felt like a self insert for the audience and I was like okay. He's fun on a little bit but then the give me kind of became a little bit too much <hes> but he he came around at the end but I just did not like that ending. I don't WanNa go too much longer on this but I did want to mention one other point which was that early in the season. <hes> Veronica treats logan really badly like Logan her boyfriend Logan Logan eccles is this guy who is dealing with trauma of his own and he has these anger issues that he's been trying you know he's he's actively trying to better himself. In the season season. He's going to therapy. He's like you know getting his shit together. Basically and Veronica like actively breaks down the progress that he's made and and the show I think largely doesn't explore that dynamic of the consequences of of her breaking down his progress to a satisfying degree to me so I don't know that was just one thing that that was probably along with those. There's a couple of little editing things here and there that was the thing that I was the most disappointed with where it seemed like it was teasing something interesting where it was going to go really really deep into Veronica's psychology a and you know why she is the way that she is. I feel like it sort of brushed up against that but didn't quite ticket as far as I want to do so anyway that's Veronica Mars. It's on Hulu right now. Actually I just one question for you. You know I have seen Veronica. Mars kitchen has not is this something that you could jump into not having seen that first three seasons. Did you watch the first three seasons before season. Four didn't know I think you could there are some like Easter eggs and nods that might be a little confusing and some characters who show up that don't come with any explanation but overall as a mystery series. I think you could could jump in without knowing anything about it may be a little bit with the development of Ron Logan would be a bit confusing but other than that like the mystery itself in the plot. It's pretty easy to get a handle of at I yeah I agree. I think there are a couple little things that you'll miss but without having re watched the first three seasons in so long I I forgot who a lot of the recurring characters were in the show like cliff. The lawyer shows up and I'm like this guy seems vaguely familiar and then I remember that he was like a major part of the show in the early days so yeah I think Peter if you WanNa watch it and then like just have kittery like wikipedia a couple little things along the way you should be fine okay. <hes> the only I watched this past week is <hes> I talked about once upon a time in Hollywood already I think last week <hes> but <hes> when we saw that Kibera mentioned she had never seen Jackie..

"I've been missing out famous last words Spicy Hugo go find the spiciest intimate boss enemy anime okay. Let's let's talk about Veronica Mars Ben you watch this over the weekend. Yeah there's eight episodes in the newly released fourth season season and my wife and I watched all eight over the past week. They actually released the whole season a week earlier than intended. They dropped it on the I think it was the Friday Friday of COMECON <hes> so we had a little while to <hes> to catch up with the show and <hes>. I don't know I find myself really mixed on the season. I like <unk> so the Veronica Mars I watched the first three seasons and really enjoyed them. You know maybe the first season more than the other two but then the movie movie came out a few years ago like twenty thirteen twenty fourteen and I just thought that was really awful like it almost zapped any of the love that I once had for the franchise at all it stands service the movie it was and and this show thankfully does not feel that way it has a lot of the same actors actors and a lot of the same elements that takes place in the same town but it doesn't have that like stink of desperation to it that I can't describe the movie any better than that so <hes> this fourth season gets back to the basics in terms of like having a single case that spreads over several hours and <hes> I think the for the most part the plotting is pretty good. I have some <hes> some complaints with like the editing of the show. I feel like there were several times where my wife and I when we watch shows like this especially something that has like a mystery at the center. We're not the type of people that have our phones out and are just like mindlessly watching something coming. We're like we're we're zeroed in on what we're watching tracking all the details and all the characters and like really into whatever it is that we're watching when it when it's something like this and <hes> I several times we had to pause the show and be like okay. Wait a second who is who are they talking about. How did this person die and like there were there was a stretch of like four of the eight episodes where we were like? I just I don't remember what you know what the fate of this one character was and how they died and then like you know two episodes from the end or something like Oh okay that was that guy like Geez that I mean we're we shouldn't have to work that hard for like you know. We'll have all the pieces fall into place but <hes> I don't know that that may be just like a personal thing. I'm curious. <hes> h e you saw this as well. I'm wondering if you had any of the the same <hes> any of that same issue yeah so I was a major fan of Veronica Mars. I watched all three seasons. The first season of for sure is the best one and I had the same reaction as you did to the movie it was just fans service fluff in the worst way <hes> and kind of the ultimate <hes> example of Phantom kind of getting the privilege over plot or characterization and <hes> in ironically the in doing so it actually lost what I thought was the original spirit of the series but I think that Veronica Mars Season Ford does recapture the original spirit it has <hes> Veronica <hes> being kind of being her worst enemy which I thought was really interesting and it <hes> made it had the revelation nation that Veronica was her own you know she sabotaged <unk> yourself and that's why she can't attain that happiness and I liked that arc of her trying finally accepting that threat series I thought the plotting was interesting and good. It was pretty tight. I do think that there were far too many fake outs throughout the the season that <hes> you know bled the audience down many red herring in a way that sometimes felt a little cheap and I really enjoyed it up until the ending <hes> in which <hes> I don't like no spoilers spoil it..

"We're back and we have to talk about the finale. So we jumped straight to the finale, which is very funny, and it's immediately so much more dramatic feeling Philip. They lost a lot of the quirk. I wonder if that was just for the sake of the finale that they wanted to cause dramatic fashion, but it was missing a lot of the the poppy popping of the first episode and it was a little bit less Veronica. Yeah, it was interesting too. So it jumps to like a weird another. She's in another. She's been sexually for sure. They're going to figure out who the rapist is. Now. I'm wondering if we ever find out in the middle because I was like, oh, a fait wrap that up in this episode, that'd be interesting because that's what I thought they were referring to go my God. There was. The rapist was she said she didn't remember. Yeah, so I'm like, oh my God. So Piz was the rapist has dropped was that she was hooking up with her boyfriend. And then of course, wouldn't acknowledge that there was a camera because she wasn't aware that it with right and neither neither was Piz, but his gets blamed by Logan. Who's her ex? Yeah. Who's now seeing someone new Logan beats the shit out of Piz. They find out that the tape has been sent out by some Russian mobster kid. Yeah. Okay, wait. And then there's this whole moment where she so they basically start to think that somebody is who is connected to this tape is like rushing people fraternity kind of style like torture, it's skull and bones that is. So it's like beyond a fraternity. It's like that Yale or Harvard like secret society stuff called castle at Hearst college, which is kind of thirst castle. And so they're tapping the elite of the league. So they're freshmen in college, which means. I mean, I don't know if season one and two is just senior. I don't know. No, I think it would. It was like junior senior, twenty episodes a season, which feels like a lot for in my head. I was just like, oh, so season was junior year of high school seasons. Head summer episodes. Yeah. Yeah. But. So she ends up. I mean, I loved watching her like sneak into the into the guys onto. Yes, and try to figure out how to get this important hard-drive that they have that has all this information on it and she does get it. She's very cavalier with like, Hewlett the second. They left the room. She liked comes out from behind the curtain. That'd be waiting back there classic like, well, I'm safe. They couldn't have possibly forgotten. One thing and come back on the hard drive is every single member of all of this secret organization going back to the thirties with, and this is where it got weirdly topical again, compromise on all that Mike Blackmon Scientology sort of stuff where they had confessed all of their secrets yet they can always be held in right. So you can never you can never come. You can never come against the group or whatever. Yeah, yeah. If you go to reveal it, they're like, well, blah, blah, including the guy who shot the guy who is they learn in this episode is the first person to send out the sex tape is when she confronts him. She, he drops his towel in the middle of cocaine, a video because my I got a new TV recently and it's bigger than my old one, and I'm able to every once in a while, I think see things that are not meant to be in the frame when watching an old thing and it is I saw penis. Let me think about this. You told me about, maybe I can. I don't know if it really matters if I link it up here because the sound is just it's just this. I can't do this. I have the any of the other chords, so it's fun. It's fine. It doesn't really matter the, we'll put it, put it up on. I g fired. I'll definitely put this up. Win. Okay. Get your account taken down. Exactly. I it. I think it's an a sort of nut sack, you know, to hide his penis. But here. Dominic dishonesty. I can make you. Okay. Wait. Okay. I sure there's a cock sock. Gee, can. Proves that. Oh, man. I'm sure that's so funny. Me. Were like, I just saw nuts, and I said, police already done so good. But yeah, so he drops his towel..
