Bryan Cranston on new TV drama "Your Honor"
"Bryan cranston. The star of amc's breaking bad returns to series television for the first time since that show left. The air in a new showtime miniseries called your honor which begins on sunday. Cranston plays a new orleans. Judge whose life is torn apart after his teenage son gets into some sudden and very serious trouble are tv critic. David be cooley. Has this review bryan. Cranston had played the goofy dad on the fox sitcom malcolm in the middle then. Redefined himself brilliantly as walter white. The meek high school chemistry teacher in breaking bad. What made walter break. Bad was the sudden news that he had contracted terminal cancer leading to a series of increasingly momentous decisions. In the new showtime miniseries. Your honor cranston returns to series tv playing another character who gets some sudden life changing news. This time he plays. Michael desio a compassionate judge in new orleans and a single parent raising his teenage son after the death of his wife a year ago in an unexpected tragedy. On the day of that saturday anniversary the sun adam played by hunter. Doohan experiences an unexpected tragedy of his own after leaving flowers at the convenience store where his mother was an innocent bystander. Shot by robbers has an asthma attack while driving away he searches for his inhaler on the passenger seat and as he takes his eyes off the road he slams into a motorcycle driven by another teenager. Adam after returning home tells his father what happened next. Where did this happen. Okay okay so would be the new hospital. Then the emeralds. Taken to what in new orleans and i don't know well the police must have sex. Overweight drove away before the tried to can give you called nine hundred time to try to at least yes or no please. I could breathe okay. I got you guys. This ten part series begins like the. Hbo mini series the night of following a young man. He descends deeper and deeper into a horrifying spiral of accidents and consequences that engrossing 2016 mini series was created by peter moffett who adapted it from his own british series. Moffitt is the adapter of your honor as well but this time he's not working from his own story showtimes. Your honor is his new version of a twenty seventeen. Israeli drama called ca- votto which has the same basic plot and is available of sample on youtube but for this adaptation for the united states. The location is changed in new orleans and other elements are given an american spin from police brutality. To local criminal activity one thing stays the same though. And it's thing that makes your honor so gripping from the start the father doing the right thing as both a judge and a citizen escorts his son to the police station to turn them in with an explanation but when he gets there he sees the father of the victim and recognizes him as a powerful local mob boss. All of a sudden the judge realizes that to turn his son in would be to signed his death warrant so from that point on. What is the right thing to do. And how many people does he have to enlist or deceive to do it. There's a certain flavor of breaking bad this because we're essentially put in the position of sympathizing with and rooting for a person who's breaking and avoiding the law but that's not a complaint because breaking bad may be the best tv drama series ever made and bryan cranston once again crafts a marvelously nuanced and empathic performance. And in your honor. He's not alone. The executive producers in addition to moffitt in cranston include robert and michelle king the talented creators of the good wife. So both the characters and the legal twists are fully drawn hundred. Doohan as the judge's son has the same relatable acting skills cranston and needs to since he carries most of the show's opening our and other riveting characters and actors abound michael stool barred from. Tv's fargo plays. The mob boss and hope davis plays his wife as very fierce and involved sort of carmela soprano to his tony and while margo martindale from justified in. The americans doesn't show up as the judges mother-in-law until episode four. Wow is she worth the wait. The writers on your honor include moffitt himself and the directors include clark johnson. An actor and director way back on homicide life on the street and edward. Berger who did a marvelous job directing another showtime miniseries patrick metros showtime provided only four of the ten episodes of your honoring advance. Each one. both impressed and surprised me and made me hungry to see the next cranston's michael ziada is smart enough to think on his feet and almost every scene requires him to do just that to avoid exposure endanger and to protect his only son whatever the repercussions to others the series title. Your honor isn't just the judge's work title. it's also at the center of the show. When it comes to your family would you do to save them. And what effect will that have upon your moral code your relationships with others and your honor
Rockets’ Russell Westbrook Traded to Wizards for John Wall
"Brian windhorst who. I saw yesterday on tv when early in the morning. I saw brian. When i found out that my found out the night before i guess late the night before that westbrook had moved from houston for wall in washington and is everybody knows because they've heard me say two thousand times. I love this trade for washington. But i thought brian would have a better perspective on it because he hasn't been burdened by having to watch the washington wizards for x. amount of years. John wall go nowhere absolutely nowhere. So let me let me start with the most obvious thing and take my prejudices out of this. Why do you make this trade. If you're houston well. I think this is really about the other stars involved. I mean it's hard to say that when you're talking about you know all star. I mean all star point guards. It'd be nine. yeah well. Isn't it all star today. And they and then they forty million dollars. They could traded for each other. I mean this is the definition of a blockbuster. But i'm sitting here saying this is about bradley. Beal james harden and it's different for both of them This is i think houston trying to salvage the situation. Which is they know that. They absolutely positively no westbrook. It are not going work out together. and so they're trying to find a way to keep their fingers in the dam so to speak. I do not think it's going to work I think the fact that they got the first round pick And i think they also hedging. And i don't think this is a strong bat. I wanna be clear. But they're also hedging that if wall recovers from this achilles That it might be better to have him for the next three years and russell westbrook. But i mean you know you're not staking your application on that I think hard and we'll be out of there by the trade deadline. Which looks like it's going to be in late march Maybe well before. But that's what they're trying to do and washington. I you know this is about holding bradley. Beal i mean i don't think it's a revolutionary idea that they have transitioned from john wallace their franchise player to bradley beal. This is clear and while Trust me there are plenty of people out there who have checked in with the wizard checked in with bradley beal however they do that. Are you happy in washington. The answer is still. Yes but the wizards are very aware that that may not be yes indefinitely and so this trade they trade free guy who was on the nba team. Last year. He was thirteen nba And he will in theory. Give them some more ammunition this year to compete with charlotte in atlanta who have upgraded. Their rosters and the wizards need to make the playoffs. This year or i think bradley beal could be out of there. And that's a move in this direction. Is it a slam dunk. Tony no but i think will be a upgrade from what they can expect from john wall.
Moviegoing as we know it has changed forever
"Can't wait for the day. That i get to go back and enjoy a movie the way it was designed to be seen in a big beautiful theater but i fear that i'm in the minority because the movie theater experience is not going away but let's face it it will never be the same again now. You may have heard the news. That warner brothers studio. That changed hollywood forever with technology. Back in nineteen twenty nine when it invented talkies with the jazz singer announced that in twenty twenty one all of its new movies would play in theaters on streaming day and date. That is so huge. Now we're not talking minor films but major hundred million dollar plus sequels to wonder woman the matrix space jam and more warner's will debut the films on. Its new struggling. Hbo max streaming subscription service. Now theaters are upset. Obviously even though warner says it's a one time experiment due to the pandemic and the fact that most theaters are closed. One time experiment for ear. But let's face it while studios have been talking about doing something like this for decades. The genie is now out of the bottle. Disney took the first step in september with the release of mulan on disney plus and his following up in january with seoul. The latest animated film from pixar. Hbo max will have wonder woman nineteen eighty-four and christmas day a blockbuster that normally would only be seen i in theaters so clearly. Warner's is gonna lose a fortune by not having the theatrical boxoffice and putting all this films on hbo max but it has dreams of making the service the next net flicks which has nearly two hundred million subscribers and generated over six billion dollars in revenues and the most recent quarter warner's revenue at the same time was two point four billion as we've discussed here hbo. Max has had a really hard time finding traction with subscribers because it's not available on the most popular streaming platform roku will wonder woman the matrix and space jam. Change rokos minds will analysts. I've spoken to are so sure as roku is in the driving seat so cut to twenty twenty to the pandemic hopefully behind us in life as return to normal will major feature films debut day dayton and theaters and streaming. I think so consumers have fallen in love with the idea of not having to hire a babysitter jump into the car search for a parking spot and pay thirty dollars or more to sit in a dark room for two hours. Some of us will still do it like me but most of us will take a pass which is a real shame solution. We all need to go out and buy bigger. Tv sets right

Hip-hop's history with mental health in Black communities
"TV. Here's a conversation you might remember. I think it's important for us to have conversations about, you know, open conversations about mental health, especially with me. Being black because we never had therapists in the black community. We never approached like taking medication with Kanye West on the show, Jimmy Kimmel live. He's talking about how mental health and simply talking about it. Has a stigma in black communities and their numbers to back that up. In one study out of the United States, 63% of black respondents said that talking about mental health was a sign of weakness and You could see the stigma reflected in hip hop and rap. Mark Anthony Neal is the James B. Duke professor of African and African American studies at Duke University. He's also the co editor of That's the Joint the Hip hop Studies. Reader. So before we get going heads up with this conversation includes topics of depression and suicide, which may be triggering to some professor Neill joined me to talk more about hip hop's long history with the topic of mental health and mental illness. Fester. Neil, Thanks so much for making the time today. Thanks for having me It's a pleasure, So I have a whole lot to get with you today. But just let's start very broadly. How would you describe hip hop's overall track record when it comes to mental health and mental illness? You know, I think hip hop reflects where the conversations about mental health are with black communities More broadly, and particularly with black men s 01 of the real breakthrough was in recent years was, you know Jay Z's 444 You know his own kind of bourgeois way. It was a recording that talked about the significance of actually sitting down and talking with a therapist, right toe work through all kinds of notions of trauma. And you know for someone like Jay Z. You know, part of it's because now he's older, right, but it's also a break with the way that black men have often dealt with mental health. You know where we just man up, right? And and instead of, you know, seeking therapy, you know, clinical psychologist, you know, you find all these different moments reflected in hip hop of black men basically inviting. You know marijuana weed Percocet? Of course, there has become kind of the painkiller of choice in recent years, And this is all you know, young black men responding to a mental health crisis that they're having in their daily lives, right? And if I'm reading it correctly, What you're saying is that you know what we see in hip hop. Is ultimately reflective of the larger historical stigma. Mental health has in some black communities, and there's no question right and it is not just mental health, right? I mean, we're having the same conversations with in black communities and definitely within hip hop. About just things like going to the doctor on a regular basis, Right? Regular kind of preventative health care are the kinds of things that you know if you feel pain, you just, you know, Hustle passed, right. You just grind past it because it takes up time, right? And time is money and all these kinds of you know things that we here in Montrose and circulate within, You know, black masculinity. In hip hop culture, right, so mental health becomes, you know on their team Continuing well, part of what we're doing here today is looking back at some of the pivotal rack records that have explored mental health. So take a listen to this me cause I'm close to Doug Etch. I'm try again not to lose my head. So that's a bit of the message from Grandmaster Flash and the Furious five relation 82 Mel Mel, who's rapping in the Verses. Don't push me cause I'm close to the edge. I mean, incredibly legendary, You know, line in hip hop. I have to admit I had never thought about it in the grander context of mental health before. Right, because it's rage, right? You know, how do I control the rage of my experience in the hood and all the things that are going on right that you know that are both continuous and cyclical. And and we can't seem to get out of this cycle if you will, And so the only thing to express their some sort of sense of rage and again. We typically don't think about that in the continuum of mental health or emotional health, right? But the point is, how do you manage what's going on in your life so that you don't You know, I have this moment We have another clip taken. Listen to them, But I go in. Not without a fight. See, Every time I close, I start sweating and blood starts coming out my nose. It's somebody watching the back, but I don't know who it is. So I'm watching my back to get her boys with mind playing tricks on me. Classic rap record back in 1991. Hear paranoia. You hear anxiety, You know? What is it about The ghetto boys take a mental health care that sticks out to you. You know what's important about a song like that, you know, unlike the Grandmaster Flash, and here is a part of example that you played You know what we see this kind of outward expression of what's happening emotionally and mentally. This is one of the first songs I think really dealt with the interiority of mental health crisis, right? It's the stuff that might be there what it's probably not. But it's so internalized that I can't see my way out of it on by think that particularly resonated for many young black men listening to hip hop in that period of time. You know, because of this kind of stoicism. That's that was expected right that you have to keep everything inside. But you can't let people know how you feel right. And what's going on What pain you're going through, You know, So you internalize so much of this, and I think that song does a great job of capturing what's going on in the mind literally of these men in the soul. But let's talk a little bit about treatment. You know, there have been Rap artists who have argued that they don't need professional therapy because the form itself because the music itself is inherently therapeutic. Listen, I'm not here to deny anyone's truth, I'm not here to get in the way of anyone's treatment path. What were. What do you make of that? I understand this on on several levels, right? There has long been a concern, but then black communities about what we see as Western forms of therapy, you know their feet. It's not connected to the live realities of what it means to be black in America, or even you know, black and African In the world. Um so I understand why you have been expressions of suspicion around clinical psychology right in that context, But I think you know I fall down on expertise right folks who were trained Clinically to address whether it be paranoid schizophrenia or or depression or or the whole range of emotionality is that they're contribute to what we think of as as as mental health. On guy think there's no replacing that expertise and where, at a point in time now, you know to the earlier point, you know that their candidate need made about there, not being folks in the community. Well, we know that there are in fact, you know African American therapists, right? In fact, they're thriving in this period of time, largely because you know, because of folks like saying Jay Z and another, you know, producing black woman writers and artists. Who have talked about the significance of finding a therapist, you know in their life, and so I think it has to be more of a both in right, definitely finding a community find folks that you can work the would talk through. You know who can be that first line of intervention? You know if you are suffering through, you know, anxiety or other forms of the mental health crisis, But But there is an expertise there that that folks need to pursue and again. Jay Z was so critical in this moment because, you know, he basically said, I went to see a therapist, right? If I'm going to be the Ogi of hip hop right, then it's OK. Can you elaborate on how a skepticism of psychotherapy could be related to anti black racism in our society? I mean, it's just that right the fact that we have the largest society that has never understood You know the black frame if you will. The Black is first in this country and I have tried to apply normative structures that come outside of the everyday experience of black folks, too. You know how black folks are working through their their mental health? You know, there's also the larger question of the way that that mental health care is connected to generally health care in America and general suspicion right of the medical profession. When it comes to issues of race. We could just think you know the Tuskegee experiments right? And it just think about those men for a second, right to on the one hand are subjected. You know to physical problems because of the experiments, but at the same time, Ah work into all kinds of levels of schizophrenia and depression, you know, based on the physical sense that they're also is not being addressed. You know, in the context of that movement, if you're just tuning in

It was a comic that It was very like free for me. I. Didn't like really right out anything ahead of time I just kind of like A. Free associated as I was drawing it and nobody read it and nobody cared and just completely I remember going onto comic forums and trying to post it like, Hey, guys check this out in like nobody wanted to talk to me on forum. So it was just like. But but the thing is I was already working. So it's not like it was so debilitating. What was it? The only thing I had? It was just You know it is it is that was just it was my outlet that my special hobby I guess at the time. So but as I was in the animation industry working as a story artist for about ten years run by fifth year I was starting to get antsy I just wanted to create my own things. So I started taking these comics different ideas that I had started just flushing them out into pitches into stories and or. TV shows, and that's where three bears became weaver bears. I got to change that title for legal reasons apparently. Some what's called a some company owned I think there were a taxidermy company, they own something similar. So. You know now the title really means nothing at it makes no sense but it's So. Yeah. We're not responsive opportunity right there if you. Off. So. When you when you came up with this for the idea when he became a cartoon a series, like what were the kind of the things that you were like how did you pitch it honestly when I tried tried to explain this series to people who've never seen it? Yeah. It's kind of a weird thing to try to like I like the concept is such a It's so simple and yet it. So it's too simple in a lot of ways. Yeah and then trying to explain to the emotional complexity of is difficult. You know. I think the pitch itself was was. The visuals help a lot. I'm not just pitching words so. I think there are two things that were very crucial to well, maybe three. Crucial things to the the Bible ever the pitch that I did that help sell at one was the visual of stack these three bear stack them each other which you know I it was a very iconic thing in the comic and that was definitely the thing carried into the pitch, and so you know I pretty much started off the Bible by showing this image of the three bears together. So it just. kind of it's sort of just evokes a very strong image up the top. The second image that I put in the Bible was an image of the three bears mingling at a party with a bunch of Humid's holding like cups at a party and nobody is freaking out by them. They're just all mingling together as if they're like, you just talking about the weather or something like that, and that was another like. Important image to kind of sell here's the joke. Is that these three years nobody freaks out when they see them they're just one of you guys except there bears. So that was the other really important image to sell this project

"So we're keeping the kitchen table light this week and the EMMYS happen yesterday I did not watch says, did YOU WATCH UNITED I watch You know that I did not I mean We're just here. I have probably have watched the emmys maybe. A total of one time I think think I've sat through. I don't think I've sat through a whole emmys awards. But if you compile the pieces in highlight reels it, I've watched over the years it will probably amount to one same absolute episode. I know that I watched the year that crystal was nominated. Absolutely. But you know. Hey I think I have watched maybe one and a half full emmy awards shows in my entire life in whole black life. But God bless them Scott bless them and speaking of black lives. We WanNA shout out all of the black winners at the EMMYS. Show you right Regina King won her fourth emmy for outstanding lead actress in drama series for watchmen Ouzo duboe won her third Primetime Emmy for outstanding actress, Eddie Murphy. Won his first. CA- Eddie Murphy Kerry Washington both won their first EMMYS. Yes. In all of his career in all of his career, he's only been nominated four times. Carrie Washington. So both of them won their first Eddie's for outstanding guest actor in comedy series, and that's for his return to snl okay and then there was a father daughter duo, Ron? Safest Jones, and Jasmine see fish Jones both mine which I think is lovely. He said that was. That was one of the highlights of his life was watching his daughter when you know he's got mine and it was nice to get another one. But to see my daughter win and see her dream start, you know coming to fulfilment like that is incredible So he won for this is us and she won for I guess a film called Hashtag Free Raytheon Okay, very black I'm GONNA have to go look at that though. Dave Chapelle one stick and stones that and lastly famous Acceptance Speech Zinn Daya. Absolutely Oh, we love our Virgo Queen. She won for best lead actress in a drama for euphoria and they didn't insecure win Oh and insecure. Yes. I have the Mo- here to they got eight nominations but they won for outstanding single camera picture editing for the low key trying episode. They listen it's her first one for insecure. We will celebrate we're to celebrate it and I think I got all the black people if I missed anybody. Charge to the game. So with you know with all of that and Look beautiful I loved her her hair. And her outfit she always gives you know what I'm saying she's so gracious both our con- She. Really. Yes and the and the youngest to ever win that award. I mean as Dan if you're like we must if you don't stand, you are hating US nigger. So I thought in light of the enemies we just talk about TV that we've been watching whether it be old whether we're doing some re watches or some new team now watching anything current all your nine no probably not anything that's like currently on right now five from like bows whilst Potomac. Okay. So get into what you've been watching I've been watching the house last. Potomac. Our. Marriage Huntsville is that the one with the lady with the really long neck and her husband cheating on her And he's like really pretty. Her heck with her neck was long but sure yes. Okay. Yes. Yes. She's like A. Pretty Lady Donate Stone Age has been from Levin there. I already know this show because Trista was watching. A he started watching it because he thought it was a real estate show. So I. Think you know it was three couples each doing something around like real estate, real estate development or like you know. And they were building up the real estate in like they were rented by a part of the inspiration of like Huntsville Alabama but they were. Revitalizing. You know. Yeah, yeah I saw the in Huntsville and that's where you know that was the hook like it was like these three couples but then we got into it and it was the real housewives of hundred mess of their relationships start their friendships amongst. Across Marriages, and then you know all that stuff going on within each marriage became the crux of the show but I watch it still even I feel like they're season wrapped up short because they had to stop filming for Kobe Okay but I did watch that. Let's see I know that the hasn't had not on own back. Caught up, I know I did what probably watched the first season of the episode, but you're not kind of like Greenlee. Own those kinds of programs. Like. It seems like they're only slated for certain number of seasons. Then when they get toward the end, they just try to cram everything in and then he gets to be a mess. Yeah so I think I'm not really. I've kind of found myself in. A. Net flicks thing Lately, I've been kind of like going back and watching the television show of the early two thousands. Oh Girl Franks. have been getting my life why haven't even gotten into girlfriends that much watching few episodes of the game okay. But I you know I'm still watching grey's anatomy and private practice. We've got five seasons of careers and I mean I just cannot seem to stop myself from watching and rewatching because it's just so layered and it's just so like I don't know. But SHONDA RHIMES is really gifted and each I actually it's just masterful in her character development because each character in grey's anatomy could have his own show right because there's just so much. Miss there. But I found myself just kind of watching those things over and over again. And Washington like documentaries on Netflix I watched the social experiment that no, but it's on my lists hull guy now that gave me a panic attack watch that though. Let me see what else I've been watching just like a rerun on the one I watched family matters, I watch law and order especially unit. Current things I'd like to get caught because the news in all these notifications, things that kind of wear me out. So I go to TV F my happy place and I tried to watch older sitcoms fictional things because I cannot. I cannot deal with the realities of the world. So the I did watch marriage BOOTCAMP HIP hop. All of that I started with corrupt and. In his history partner. Listen Lady has a lot to be mad about she does. She. She. pissed optimal level. At all times but I did watch that that was very entertaining. But I don't know those skill question. Sure. What does a Hazel do let me tell you something but fast get on my nerves. Let me tell you why I don't care for that hastily like whatever it is that she does I mean. I'm really not clear on what she does, but she has found a way. To market it right she is like a social media she's like a walking basset. Even in that Levin Marriage Hip hop she was the leak like they I watched one of their behind the scenes episodes. And they signed, of course they have to like. The rate right. They had car her like footage like we're her phone like talking to people showing people the House and like telling people what was going on when there was a fight like Willie from day twenty six.

It's absolutely disgusting like we have and I I I strongly believe that's why everything has happened the way it is right now because this is a system, this is this is this can't continue forward but empires have fallen before so. That's pretty much on that Some of those people's president is trying to ban tick tock. he claimed it was gonna be gone on Sunday. It's still here so. It's he's banning lots of things he is. He's trying to he's causing chaos the negativity I mean, may him? You know before this November and we'll see what happens them but it's about to be a rumble nigger like it's I. Hope Everybody's only apart. So Louisville actually reached a multimillion dollar settlement with the family of Brianna Taylor. I think it's twelve twelve million dollars Yup with the family of Brianna Taylor But they still haven't arrested. Having arrested those cops. Right. You know and you know why you want this it's nothing about this is going to be a sub celebratory moment because. A completely innocent life was taken in a way that absolutely should not have been and the people who are responsible are walking this earth just as free as they can be. And it's not right working pay I'm sure they're on some sort of admin leave they can't be physically working. I'm assuming because there's too many people on their heads. There's too many people who want them people brought to justice. I'm not going to say what kind of justice but they do need to be arrested. If anything else they need to be arrested you off took the life of an innocent woman who was sleeping in her bed. You need to be arrested. You do not deserve to be walking free. There's no reason this should have happened, and then the trumped up charges that you tried to put on the household and say why you all came in the first place all of it was ally, and the fact that this is just continues to be to be allowed as just this cannot sustain itself. I can't say it just cannot sustain itself. We can sustain US though it's been sustaining selfish is. Now is burning. Now, it's burning will. I guess it's been burning a slow fire I. Don't know Nigga I'm Hopele- This is hopeless. I feel low key, hopeless I'm not, GonNa lie to you. It's just really hard yeah to be black in America. Like you know to paraphrase. James Baldwin. It's like. How do we? How are we? Not? How are we not supposed to be outraged? But you know. I'm I don't I don't I I know it's hard I I feel like we should. Celebrate. The Very I. Don't know. That's probably not an appropriate where I feel like should. Celebrate that. They bring honest family is going to receive some sort of I mean you can't put a price on her life, right? But I'm sure that her her mother and her family they have been out on the frontlines fighting for justice. In assets have probably had to deal with A. Host of costs and expenses around this fight to get justice in some sort of restitution for. What what they've gone through but the same time. It seems like. Gosh I. Know if in like, what are you even? I know I was having this conversation with a friend last night he was like. Do you ever feel like just. Hopeless like everything is bad. and. I'll say you know in all honesty sometimes and then I I have days. Like that were try to remember it's hard. There are days that are really really hard and it's really hard to remember. The good things you know in the moments that you would think would wanna be celebrated or hard to celebrate you and the family can't celebrate getting twelve million dollars like you said because. They. They it all back to have. Exactly Ana. Exactly. But I'm glad they got something however. You know it's on those days where we feel hopeless I really try. I. Try I try to really dig for some kind of gratitude real and remember that. Not every day is like that. and. It's hard when you're in it and it feels like everything is bad. In. But we know we gotta try to dig for that little that little bit of that little bit positivity that's going to help us to try to pull ourselves out of it because it's too easy to to get dragged in you know what I'm saying. So. We we continue continued to send our love to the family of Brianna Taylor to the loved ones of Brianna Taylor because. It's just it's just an unnecessary situation that is not being handled in the proper way in. It just continues to show that white supremacy you know. It it it just it flourishes discussing. Lastly. The EMMYS was yesterday, which we'll talk more about and there were supposed to be to red carpet I. Don't know what Red Carpet Baotou red carpet hosts, Vivica Fox, and oh. Yeah. VIVICA. Fox was supposed to be one of them and what's her name Juliana ransacked the one who always does it? Oh Jeez and neither one could because of tested positive for COVID. Wow really. Yup.

that the government all right interesting way to look at it he go easy on yourself give yourself a raise and an extra week off okay I like it thanks for listening thanks for calling let's get Gary in here too Gerry thanks for calling the six pack tonight would you rather have a raise or more time off Kerry are the second Cutler check color had a we had it you cannot tax time also make a good wage now give me more time and with that more time is it would you you want to spend it with family or more me time or how does that work in your world lot of its family I mean family and how he sees lance you cannot mess with hunting season right thank you for taking the call thank you Gerry thanks for your patience I I but when it comes to hunting season that is sacred time for a lot of people and where I grew up not only hunting season but in Minnesota they have a you know a fishing opener it's an official fishing opener and you know a lot of the the bigger game fish you know things like walleye in northern and stuff like that there there's a time period after ice fishing kind of wraps up that you can't fish for that stuff is off limits you can get I still think it panfish but so the fishing opener would always be in spring and it was common knowledge that you would there's a lot of spring weddings and it was common knowledge among amongst those guys if if you're gonna be dumb enough to get hitched on fishing opener just know that hi my friend and not could hear her wedding and the same worked with you know in the fall for for deer hunting season whether it was below or or rifle but tonight the magic question would you rather have more vacation time or would you rather have a raise and I was I was shocked by the numbers first of all they said folks across most age groups agreed they would rather have more vacation time to raise and this was global responded to fifty four percent of millennials fifty three percent of Jack's risen fifty six percent of baby boomers value time over money and said that they would go with more vacation time so kind of you still loved it it wasn't shocking to me I guess the baby boomers but the younger generations I I figured would want to raise for sure but it doesn't necessarily work out that way Columbus metro parks it just seems like there's been a lot of and I'm sure it's because of Valentine's day is looming just seems like there's a lot of like wedding and couples news lately Columbus metroparks offering free wedding for twelve couples according to the to a tweet from Columbus metroparks on February twenty ninth two PM of course that is going to be on leap day right twelve couples are able to get merry for free at the Grove lodge at Sciota Grove cake and a sparkling non alcoholic beverage for a toast will be provided and each couple can bring up to ten guests so if that sounds appealing to you if you want to get married with eleven other couples and everybody can bring up to ten other gas so there's gonna be a whole lot of people at your wedding that you don't know but that's before check out check of the Columbus metro parks Twitter account again they're offering that up for February twenty ninth at two o'clock if you don't have anything going on maybe you just head out to the metro park in and watch a bunch of people get hitched and throw a little rice in West Virginia Point Pleasant that's where moth man lives right allegedly lottery officials said a winning mega millions ticket worth a million Bucks was sold it to the camp Conley Mart in Point Pleasant it's just across the river from Ohio so it's not beyond the realm of complicated comprehension that maybe an Ohio one is a new millionaire or like I said it could have been the actual moth man creature that showed up in purchased that ticket maybe looking to relocate to a different city how about some this is interesting do you do you do you give good looking people a pass on stuff the only thing I do I'm especially if somebody's really good looking but the rude I I really think less of them so instant feedback what we give good looking people a pass on number one they came up people said being route I I I don't give people a pass for being rude especially if they're good looking that is a non starter bad manners in general yeah just because you're good looking why should you get to be here I guess I kind of goes back to the the rudeness factor bad hygiene it seems kind of counter to if if you're good looking would you have bad hygiene you kind of think that what ace that out speeding tickets okay I I suppose there may be a a law officer that at one time or another has fallen prey to pretty young damsel in distress batting her eyelashes I'm sorry telling bad jokes that everyone laughs at do you we're doing bad radio shows you know do you do you give people a pass for that kind of stuff or intelligence do you give people a really good looking people a pass if they're stupid I don't like I said I I think the only do you have a thought one way or another on that eight two one WTVN eight hundred six ten WTVN they don't have to return tex promptly come on that's just stupid who cares about that so whether it's giving a good looking people a pass or if you wanted to get a final comment in on on the at the debate tonight of would you rather have a raise or would you.

"What kind of cool a story about technology is that by the early early Nineteen Seventy S. You're starting to come up with these cool computerized tools that can be used to measure viewer response. You don't have to input letters. There's anymore. You can have a child watching a program like Sesame Street and holding this thing that kind of looks like a calculator and whenever they like anything that happens on screen the press a button and like the mother computer will measure the the exact time that they pressed the button and that response and then that information can be fed into a master spreadsheet and used to create a graph that shows not just when susie press that button but also rickie press that button to see which kids responded well like moment by moment to an entire program so yeah so oh. CDW uses the data to create sesame street. They use it very well to create the electric company so it makes sense that they're going to use this data to to create something. That is a science show. The most interesting study that they do. I find is the television like a research interest survey where they survey around four thousand children nationally ages again about eight to twelve twelve about what they're watching on TV in one thousand nine hundred seventy five and it's amazing turns out kids are watching a lot of happy days as they love wonder woman they're interested in you know little house on the prairie in the biotic man but one thing that is concerning to the viewer to people who are understanding the viewer responses is is that these kids are not really watching any science programming so in this period there are a number of sort of kind of science shows on air including one that is a pseudoscience show called in search of and in search for your listeners who don't know it is a show that is hosted by Leonard Nimoy who was Mr Spock in Star Trek and every week he has a serious look at scientific issue like it is felt by some scientist that bigfoot fall somewhere in this progressive charter man giant Hamad Um and related to but not like modern man according to this theory bigfoot would've pursued a course evolution separate but parallel to his human cousins and so what the survey done by c. t. w. shows is then nineteen seventy five which is when you have shows like Nova on air there were more kids leads who are watching in search of than over and so that's probably probably skewing what they're really thinking of science so that's like interesting that they find and that makes everyone very uncomfortable and very unhappy and it really propels this research because they say sort of. Oh Crud. We actually need to get a science show on air. Kids can watch spend two years doing research and then the research team hands the the information over to the writers at the same time they're also trying to develop and get information from particular communities rights they survey African American scientists and Latino scientists and they try to find a group of Asian American scientist interview as well to get a sense of what ways that people in those communities think that the science on scientists specifically on the shows should be represented so it's a three to one contact is a program. Yes put by put together together by committee it is I mean what else would you expect from the people who put together sesame street right you know they have this positive image of America and and I think thank everyone who joined H W in those years was very very young very idealistic. They really thought they were helping to make the automatic. They knew they were helping to make the world. A better place.

"So Nova changes the landscape of science programming for grownups but in you walk us through the evolution of how that becomes science programming for kids I mean the last thing we talk about right is Mr Wizard which is fun and great but how does that become the science programming. We know today for kids in the nineteen nineteen seventies you have Nova. They're really interested in creating this hard hitting content and then you have a group of educators and television producers who served and writers which coalesce up in New York City and become the children's television workshop and and this is a group of people who are really interested in creating content and educational material for Young Children and and finding ways to present a I think a more positive upbeat vision of the future for these young kids and so yeah so w as this group become known launches their very first series of nine hundred sixty nine which is known own out sesame street right yeah yeah and it's a hit sesame street has like a smash hit like you know by the early nineteen seventy s every child in America knows who big bird is and so children's television workshop rolls along with another hit series called the electric company. No they're smash hit people of the Electric Company. It's got Rita Moreno. It's this really cool. bopping program teaches early literacy skills and so the people who put together that program say hey could we do about science pat's an idea and so they spend a couple of years brainstorming this program that eventually becomes known as three we to one contact.

"All right so ingrid to start us off. Tell us about why you're interested in this subject. What are you thinking about science on TV. I think think I've always been very interested in the public presentation of science. One of my earliest memories is being a kid. Remember how in the nineteen nineties everyone was obsessed by cloning like that was a big thing like Dolly the sheep was a big thing right yes and so I remember very vividly going to a lecture with with my mother and then we would go to science luxury were little because my mom was working on finishing her bachelors and she would take us and we would be allowed to sit in the back of these you know lectures but couldn't say anything. We just had to be quiet but I remember there. Was this one lecture about cloning and I was my mother said you can ask a question and I was like Oh. This is going to be great and I was like nine right. That's n deal yeah. It was a good deal right and so I remember the very end. I was really nervous but I got to ask the professor question and like I don't even remember what it was but the the thrill of being like Oh my God I can. I'm talking to a scientist about something and I think in some ways. It's it's that excitement that carried through to into this project. Basically it's this interest in sort of what about these spaces that recreate where our people can who knew nothing about science at all like you know little nine year old. Ingrid can go and talk to US scientists and be like Gee whiz. Mr Scientists what's up. That's amazing. I love it so okay before we talked. I guess I kind of took science and TV for granted. I mean now there are shows about everything baking in home renovation singing etcetera etcetera but science. TV started somewhere so who started it and well why so in the the the nineteen forty s and the nineteen fifties before public broadcasting exists the people who are putting these programs are on our commercial broadcasters right and they're driven by their own interests like namely to make money right and then to increase the public trust in what they're doing and so for for instance. You have a program that would run on. NBC called Mister Wizard and it was put on by NBC to show their viewers viewers that they could be a trustworthy station which was especially important after the quiz scandals of the late nineteen fifties where turned out that they were some people who had sort of played the odds l. legally chosen who's going to win and lose a certain you know episodes of the TV show in the Senate hearing room dramatic climax of the probe Picton Quiz Show Charles Van Doren wife from Potter poet Mark Van Doren are in the audience as committee chairman Senator Orrin Harris Open community and so then especially it was important for broadcast. NBC Lisa showed their audience that hey we care about people. You know we care about the education of future generations and we're doing. We're proving that to you by having a culture like Mister Wizard on watch Mr Wizard. That's what all the kids in the neighborhood call him because he shows them the magic and mystery three of science in everyday living besides mister wizard. Tell us where we're GONNA go. What shows are you going to walk us through today. So the shows I look at are the Johns Hopkins Science view which is very very first science program in the United States. I look at watch Mr Wizard which is the very well known own science program that errors in the United States Nova which is a game changer. I Love Nova. It really changes everything as a science series. I looked at three two one in contact which is a program that was put on by the same people who put on the Electric Company and Sesame Street which is Super Fun and Cosmo's which was put on my Carl Sagan. The very first science show is called the Johns Hopkins Science Review starts in one thousand nine hundred eighty eight and it is produced directed and written by Lynn Poole who is this sort of small slightly owlish guy who doesn't look like much but he actually has this extensive background and modern dance and Vaudeville Vaudeville and theater which was why he was hired by Johns Hopkins University in the nineteen forties us to be their public relations bureau and so he decides to help get this university national read. He's going to host a show. Oh that weekly looks different issues in science and specifically talks to different professors at the university who are professors of engineering and Medicine Edison and so it's kind of a nice way to display what's going on at Johns Hopkins University. The problem of water purification and the disposal of sewage is a problem The sanitary engineer takes care of four US and is a problem that keeps us in good health. The science of sanitary engineering is one which requires great skill and knowledge combining many different fields of time and so he has some cool guests on as well like like Verna von Braun who later becomes a host on Disney's programs about space and he's like a German like rocket scientist guy. Why and WHO's watching this show adults kids a mix? It might help us understand that the main gene folks who are watching television in the fifties are wealthy white women and there's been some studies done saying that a lot of these women might have had scientific training and so they they were they were reading a lot of books about science anyways the market for Popular Science paperbacks actually increases substantially in this period so you've got a lot of bored housewives at home basically and they're trying to do something and and Lynn poole figures that one thing that they might be interested in is having a show about science that they can in watching the evenings. He actually himself is very much a feminist. He has women on his staff his wife gray a pool helps him right the Johns Hopkins Science Review and one of the things that I really enjoyed researching the ways that they become this dynamic power couple early on on so again. It's an interesting show and again. It's mainly for the family but with a special focus on women and we can tell this because there are programs programs that are more feminine that are on air about the science of dish soap the science of training your dog the science ends of using jewels and like diamonds in industry and it's an interesting show aw because again in so much that they're using a lot of this these gendered subjects the talk about science they are doing so in a way that still respectful of women they have a lot of women who are scientists on the program and that's unusual for the time but again. I think a lot of that comes not from from and this is where I'm very careful to delineate. It's not because science was progressive in the nineteen fifties. It's not that scientists not progressive in the Nineteen Fifty S. It's because Lynn poole was progressive in the nineteen fifties and so the Johns Hopkins Science Review is a show that very much goes back back to this early vision of Ions about science being wonderful and specifically looking at the ways that science can help you out in in your daily life and that's a quality shared by the other charismatic host of the Science Program of the Era Don Herbert who runs a show called watch Mr Wizard and and mister wizard is a youngest guy kind of in his thirty S. He was a World War Two bomber pilot which there's something that the newspapers make a lot of fuss about they show pictures of him in his bomber jacket and Mister Wizard Word Don Herbert actually is the first celebrity scientist he's the first person who becomes a yeah well known for his role as actor playing scientist on TV and because of that get sort of called a personality around him Lynn poole cool who hosts the Johns Hopkins Science Review is a very interesting charismatic guy and he definitely hosts a program. He's the focus in the face of the program but he doesn't have have the same levels of adoration that Mister Wizard has in the nineteen fifties into the nineteen sixties Khuzdar but stay right here because I have a problem for you. I want you to turn on the light but before you do I want you to see if you can't estimate how long it takes from the time you flick the switch rich and to light comes on what's mister wizard apart. I mean aside from the bomber jacket which I love. Why.

I'm a person yeah that can feel really demeaning so yeah. I go back and forth on that not that I think it's a total waste of time. Just you can easily get sucked into like Oh God. The last fifteen years of my life have been spent arguing about my humanity with these people and I don't know if the letter writers parents are homophobic homophobic because they believe that's the correct interpretation of their faith or if they are homophobic and that is a convenient reason for homophobia and that is hard because I genuinely do think there are people in both camps and you don't always know which one is which some people are like boy sure like to to be able to have a reason to to put down and there are other people who are like. I will grab it any reason. Why can't put this homophobia down and it doesn't matter? I'm keeping keeping phobia so yeah but good luck. I think it is totally an understandable to let them know how made you feel and don't want the fact that they're in their early seventies. Make thank you feel like well.

I can the sonnet expression the hospital rules. The hospital hospital rules thank you. I will eventually have my brain back. Let's and on challenging but hopeful note about out you know hope for the future. What are the children doing. How do we collectively bind up. One another's wounds the subject is thirteen year olds. I gay crush dear dear prudence. My thirteen year old daughter just told me that she has a crush on a girl millie. This is obviously big news. It's not a big deal in our family which has several other LGBTQ BTU members. My worry is that my daughter wants to save the world and she told me that her crush has some concerning problems. MILLEY's coming out to her family has resulted in physical and emotional abuse. She has had bouts of self harm and probably an eating disorder a doe only daughter to think that my concerns about this potential relationship have anything to do with being gay as we live in the big south. I'm sorry the big south. My brain is not here all right. There's the big south new small south. We live in the the deep south so she's worried about acceptance but I have some real concerns. How do I support her. And how do I help her support milly without taking too much responsibility on for Malays mental health issues. My first question here is what is the nature of this physical abuse and is there someone one at the school who is a mandated reporter that you can report this to yeah. I wrote. CPS question mark at the top of my paper I used to work at a high school well and we had a called a cost referral who was like the coordination of services team an anyone could fill out a cost referral for a student apparent another student a teacher so I would find out if your school has something similar Um and what that does. In many schools is it sends that report to a team mm-hmm of professionals at the school who decide is this. A counseling need is a CPS need is this a nursing need an academic support need because those are going to be the group of adults who will have the tools to meet. Melly where she is yeah yeah if she's thirteen years old and she's being physically and emotionally abused for coming out That's a kid who needs a lot of help. She does not have a lot of resources. It's like she. Can you know drive away and like crash at a friend's ends house. It's not like she can go. Get A job and save up money like she is. A young teenager and physical abuse for queer kids is is really serious. I I think before you go to your kid and say like we can't save everybody. You actually need to step in and intervene as as a as an adult here I think so yeah I would say talk to the school guidance counselor. I think this stuff about filing different. Reports is excellent but but you need to make sure or that this kid is not that her abuse is not going totally ignored yeah because it's clearly it's manifesting in some pretty serious self harm harm yeah yeah. That's the serious red flag to me. This isn't just like a you know. She receives regular not repaired if therapy her parents are doing their best I with her. She's dealing with these ongoing issues but all the adults in her life are doing right by this is like this kid is in crisis right now. and I think this kind of self harm could seriously point towards like this is a significant cry for help. This means that she's slipping through the cracks. Something more serious could happen at any point and somebody who's an adult and who's responsible needs to intervene so that's your first priority beyond that you know talking to your kid about outweighs in which you can try to help and support somebody in crisis ways in which it's also okay to say you know. I cannot see this person all by myself. how do I find ways to also look after myself and make sure that I don't feel like I'm the only person standing in between this person disaster. That's really important stuff that you know. I think any kid kind of needs to learn especially. If your kid is of the type that's like when someone's going through a crisis their antenna kind of perk up like how can help because it's a really good instinct and and it can also sometimes result in your kid running themselves ragged trying to fix everybody and so that's a really good opportunity to like both affirm that as a lovely quality in her and also to talk about what are some reasonable limits. I agree. I think it's a great time for thirteen is great time for the sex. Ed Conversation about what is a healthy relationship. Asian ship look like whether that's a friendship or romantic relationship with her boundaries. and I wrote down to book recommendations their Middle Grade novels levels both are about protagonists who have someone in their life with depression end so eleven twelve thirteen year olds wrestling with how do I love and support with this person I care about who is also dealing with serious mental illness. I'm one is called nest by Esther Ehrlich and the other is the science of breakable things by take Heller great names. Yeah Yeah Yeah I I love that idea and then I think beyond that your kid is also thirteen so it's not like she can go like drive arrive off and get a motel room with millie so I think having these conversations will be great but beyond that. I don't think you need to do a lot right now. Aside live from the stuff about reporting this just because any dates that they would potentially go on would probably be you'd have to drive them. You know you would be involved so it does not sound like you don't say like my daughter's losing sleep or you know. MILLEY's runaway in his trying to spend the night here ear or or you know I like found them like running off to the big city together so I think mostly the things that you should be concerning yourself with are making making reports and then also talking to your daughter a lot about how can we be helpful to me. How can we also take care of ourselves. Take a little space. Make sure that you don't feel like it's your job. You know we have responsibilities as concerned outsiders in this situation but it is not your were sold job to fix milly with your love and to make her life perfect. Here's what we can do. Here's what we can't yeah. I think it would also be worth a conversation about millie only self harm and eating disorder yeah yeah tell your kid that like Germany questions about that Is there something that we could read together together to learn more about like what that's like or why people do that to kind of demystify some of it Did you have any other thoughts about how that conversation would go or I just I remember those kinds of things I felt like we're kind of a wildfire in eighth and ninth grade which is around the age that the letter writers daughter is and so just just having a conversation of yet demystifying talking about what that represents and what are some healthier coping mechanisms for dealing with the kind of pain yeah yeah. I think all that's going to be really really useful because I think the thing that you sort of want to protect your kid from which is like a lifetime of like having a big old heart and often responding to vulnerability ability with like big hard is that's probably going to be a part of your kids character for a big chunk of her life so I think you can encourage her to develop tools to kind of make sure that she also looks after herself but you know it's. I think it's kind of hard like when you start to identify like Oh. I think this is is going to be the thing that sometimes makes life hard for you. You can't wish that away. You can't discipline it away. Your kid will probably always have a certain big big response to like. Oh no you're not doing well. Let me help so rather than like. How do I make sure my kid never goes down that path or never falls for you. No trouble brooding sensitive types who are in trouble that might just be the type of person. They're often drawn to so rather than worrying about like how do redirect to like look at that person who's just totally got their stuff together and is treated really well. Why don't you fall in love with them. Instead like that won't get you really many places says but I think what you can do is talk about like you know. What do you feel drawn to hear. What you feel like you're the limits of what you can and can't do. How is your parent be helpful. What are impractical useful reminders for you about like maintaining your other interests getting enough sleep talking the other friends etcetera etcetera without like signaling. I'm freaked freaked out about this. I want you to get over this. I want you to like somebody whose life is easy and simple that will make your kid feel like a ha type of dive straight into Romeo and Juliet style stuff yeah. Does that make sense yeah. You can't stop who could from wanting what they want yeah you can. Maybe give them some tools to want it in a healthy way yeah. I think that's a really good point and you know good luck. I hope that filing this report helps Millie I hope hope that somebody is prioritising her safety elps. She's able to go somewhere where she's not harmed for being gay I hope that this produces good good positive safe results for her. I agree and congratulations on having a daughter feels comfortable coming out to you yeah yeah. That's really like that. Part really warms warms my heart. Even though the problems of the young kids are really stressful and difficult and painful I also just feel amazed that like at eleven twelve and thirteen they're already out to some family members and receiving some forms of support that just like who it's hard to imagine yeah a world has changed yeah..
"w tv" Discussed on Upgrade
"App is named TV, the future of TV TV TV we have a new challenger approaching. Of course, there is another media conglomerate which is working on their own streaming service. One media who we have been talking about a little bit of loss couple of weeks does a report from the Hollywood reporter that won a meteor is preparing to launch streaming service at their own in case you need a refresh. So some of the services and all content kooky included in this hatred TBS contin network properties from the DC universe. Hannam Abera cotton's Sesame Street because HBO had the right success street. And even one above is movies, which includes stuff like the Harry Potter franchise. I was thinking about this one Jason because I I was kind of like, all right. But then I started thinking about some of the properties that wanna actually own. And it's like, I think we may be times give them the same credit. We could give Disney. Right, right. Even just Harry Potter so mandating are currently watching the Harry Potter movies. She's never seen them. Never the books. So it watching them all and isn't watching them. Somebody read the books in wash, moose, loved the movies, but I was like, this would be a really good TV show. Instead I know right where they could actually tell the stories because like we watched goblet of fire and she's like, why don't we get to see what everybody else is doing l. because you did in the book, but it just is not enough time in movies to tell the whole story's got it will be a really good like seven series TV show ri- on HBO boy, that would be good. So our or on the Warner media streaming service with interesting here is that basically they're feeling like HBO now is successful and they don't want to upset that. So they'll they're going to keep that going, but they want to build this this broader streaming service that encompasses all their content. I look at that and think, okay, I guess it kind of makes sense. But in the long run, I am not sure HBO now make sense on its own that you you you at some point. You probably just want everybody to how they're trying to not bone bridges, which is proper. Good. Good move right in the long run one streaming service because I get the also want to increase the content at HBO. But at some point like this is if this is not if this is a super set, it's everything that HBO does and is going to do plus other stuff than than at that point. It doesn't make sense now, maybe HBO and this service are different in some way and that is that would be different..
