"A rotating hosts type is a better approach to filling out what the show looks like moving forward in the absence of course a meghan mccain and listen. I'm a. I am just a absolute stand of the view as a nerdy kid. That grew up knowing. You want to be a lawyer and being a black from the south seeing star jones at that table when i was twelve thirteen years old It was revolutionary. You know in star and barbara. Walters and joy are and you loved. I loved talk shows. I love smart women. Love smart women. i love smart women. That aren't necessarily like me. Because that's the growth opportunity. I don't like echo chambers i like obviously. That's why i worked at fox news for five years. You know. I like the interplay. I welcomed the discourse i welcome the dialogue. I welcome accountability. And then let's all go out and get drinks afterwards and not forget what we put down at the table. I think that's great. Because i feel like we live in a world where everyone's like. Everyone must think the same way or we cannot be friends. We can't talk again associate with each other and it's like we're nobody's ever all going to think the same way ho. That's just never going to happen. So i feel like that's a great way to think about it like let's talk this out and then let's go get drinks out and that's what we so. Yeah i'm really excited to be amongst Some really elite women That they're going to have at that table over the course of the next several months. You know what what what fits. It feels good. Who would you be the most excited to go up against an argument in terms of existing. Yes exists whoopie. Yeah you know for the boss right definitely. She definitely doesn't hold back either. She'll yeah absolutely the come on. She's an iga. For god's sakes respect for would be goldberg but you know something about me. And maybe i don't know whether it would i i just i've got balls of steel man. I just. i'm not somebody who walks around in this world. Afraid and i think the most formidable kind of sparring partners if you will match that energy you know like even megan and i was really humbled when she said this before her. Departure housewives came up on house. came up on hot topics a couple of times in the even did a guest appearance. But you know meghan was like. I don't know what the big deal is ebony. Rony like of course. She's kicking the table. Of course she shaken the table of your. She's you know. Got everybody you know with their feathers. All in a bunch. That's who she is. And that's what i appreciate about. Her colleague at fox was because we were often sparring partners sitting on that couch together with our ridiculously big hair on outnumbered. And that's what made it all worth it and you know So yeah i think the view is going to be really cool while we're super excited We're super excited and thankful that you came to see us a and talk to us. We have loved you on this season. And we can't wait a hopefully dec- you continue with these ladies. What happens because like we said you. Just don't know and you like. Oh that's that's. I wish people could just be honest and say nobody knows shit. Yeah okay and everybody's start trying to play cool like y'all got to nobody got enough. We had a motto. Nobody knows shit. Yes nobody knows. Sit here a couple of weeks ago. They were like do you think. Maybe you're going to be unpackaged. Like i've been on pause. He was like yeah. You know they could hurt. I don't know we could see alex mccord back. We honestly anything could happen in apart. I wish people would stop trying to like right the end of the story. Let this play out because they will you all baby and we're all going to get a front row seat at thank you ladies. Thank you all right. That wraps up. Today's episode of chicks in the office. We hope you have a great labor day weekend. We will not have episode on monday but we will be back on wednesday for bachelor. In paradise. france. Go.

"But i think there's like their space i would like to think they're space for both like you're sure i am absolutely obsessed with shopping. I wanted to say that retail but then there's also like space for others space for the world space for animals just other things that like you support in health harry. That's all you does that you know. Not sending other cast mates don't but she really like that's a big big part of her. What was it like filming. Because obviously you've never had this in your life. Your your life is being followed. And also you mentioned an ex fiance so that can't be easy ending a relationship and then boom you're having your whole life film coming home late them and what's interesting is because i come from a television background but like not this so i'm very comfortable with cameras so that you know kind of surprisingly was natural like they do a great job of making you forget there there so there's not like a. I don't know hyper awareness. Like how do i start. This conversation goes the window. Goes out the window like immediately like they. I don't know how they do it. It's almost as if disappear truly And so you just engaging and then how else was filming. I mean it was also just so heavy with cova and i know everyone's over kobe but kobe's not over us and i must have had my no swab fifty thousand time. I know it's like you shouldn't stop production time sony got sick. You know it was fucked up. You know We couldn't do the things that people love from the xiao. Meaning you know. Roni is similar to sex in the city in that. New york's a character. Yeah and a very compelling bad bitches compelling new york city is and we couldn't have that so we couldn't have a restaurant scene you know where they always go. You know those little swanky up. You're not gonna get that because the only because we could film was when it would be shut down and only us could occupy it. This is in beverly hills which means you know. Everybody does relatively well according to their lifestyle a situations. But nobody's got like the kyle richards you know thirty thousand square foot mega mansions yard. The resort patio push it. So it's like two trips out of three. Were ramona's in the hampton you. God bless her. I hope to never see that house again. You know a lot. Most of us live in one or two bedroom manhattan apartment or condo. That's what those are the vibes. So i think people felt that and so the filming just was more intimate it was it was scrapped. It was a scrapping really. I think to the season that made it different. Yeah yeah. I wanna ask you about the age dynamic. Because i think that that kind of gets brushed under the rug. A little bit and leah. I think when she came on it was more of something she discussed. But how did you feel because look these ladies. Are there ladies of a particular very much matola older than here's the thing though. Sometimes you are say no shade. Not but the reality is. How do i say this. I'll say it Although there's like fifteen or twenty years actually even with ramona and nobody's literally older than my mom ramona's. I dunno know sixty more than my mom. Whatever it is what it is young. She's young yes she having twenty three. She's pretty young but the point is is there's over twenty years between us massive inch gaps. But when it comes to personality maturity and lived experience which is different than numeric age. How far apart we are right. You know what i mean. I think it's different for leah. Because leea- leeann. I at least my dear friend. We're very close but lean are different. You know what. I mean like leah's on the youngest on the cast leila's a year older than me. Shout out to my Fellow virgo sister. She just turned thirty nine. I'll be thirty eight in like a week or so. Leave relishes in the adolescent like energy of youth. She's very much that way not to say she's shitty things people say In terms of child she's not childish at all. she's really smart sharp yemen and a great mother by the waiver preteen. So you can't be that childish. She's doing a great with her daughter but she leads into that like youthful energy. I don't a my podcast holding corp indicate williams. I'm ki referred to as auntie e- like i relish like the stripes. I've earned being a woman of a particular age and really life experiences like shit. I was divorced by twenty eight. I grew up with a single mom. I started practicing twenty-three like i'm an old soul at for me. It served me well. So i lean into that aspect of my personality. Not think leah leans towards the youth. And i think that kind of explains our relationship with the women and you were talking about this life experience that you had and the other woman on the show. Obviously they've had their own life experiences. They've also just been on this show for a really long for thirteen years. I tend to. Oh my god chauffeur for shelter and sonia ten. I mean if we could be really candid here. I mean they've also that means they've been famous for thirteen ten. That's a very different. You know they've had been by far the most popular housewives conic. Listen whatever shit we get in who they are fucking icon. I want to be very clear about that. Everyone of them in their own right But i'm gonna bury you know. They all had these massive marriages and they've raised their kid. Their kids are you know young ladies now totally different station in life here was frozen fucking eggs trying to figure this shit out next step you know. Get this second. Hopefully last marriage right. You know very different places in life. Yeah definitely well with ramona. I think a lot of people were interested on how you to. We're going to were these two possibly going to be in the same room together. We saw this happened. Multiple times and ramona's tactic is kind of just turn off and run away. You did not stop trying to give you a lot of credit for. How do you think you guys ended the season..

"The driver of the train tracks. Yo yeah. I mean sam's okay. He got help we. We hope that he made it out alive and well but yeah. A lot of people die and Sometimes a is shed but otherwise. It's like all right. Let's move along harry temple. No-one cry for heritage campbell. Not even off did have like a breakdown. He went off outburst but like then anti quickly calmed him down because she does that as a woman. She's very nurturing so she fixed him. The romantic couple in this movie do have the super power to get over extreme trauma very quickly because stand like realistically which obviously what even the point of having that discussion for this movie. But like if you're anti and it's clear that she enamored friends. They see each other every day he shot. It's very unclear at least to me as an audience member. If like if it's something he will survive or not and then she's kind of upfront like lilla. Am i going fast enough. You're cute lert. Any there is like you're in. He's and then and then when you do find out that sam is going to survive. He's directly behind her like she didn't even talk to him. One yet Should we talk about the bus passengers. Mean i i have a whole yes. Do you have anything else. Does anyone have anything else to say about. Annie's character eldest. I mean i do think it's so hilarious. That flirting is still a thing. Even in the face certain death and there's a moment where she takes off her cardigan news like looking at her being like. Oh she's taking off her cardigan. It's hit a wow. Yeah and it's also like trauma budgeting israel. That's there's there's a lot there is real but it but this is like the most wedged in love story over agree and disagree like of all of that like we've we've dealt with so many implausible for us love stories but sharing. I agree trauma. Bonding could be a strong argument for this. And they they do call attention to yeah twice and but then again. They aren't just too hot people you know. They found each other hot people near each other will fall in love and kiss in a movie happens. Every time i mean the ending the last thing she says she wants to base the relationship off sex. China loved that for them. I was like you know. I i- kinda have a ton of sex and maybe they stopped talking a week from the end of the movie. We don't know we have no idea speed to kyoto. She is dating someone else in speed to. Yeah i mean they were i of love that Whatever the love story is very very forced. But that's i don't maybe it's just because that's like far from one of my my more intense criticisms of the movie. That story is so corny and sucks. But like i don't know it didn't bother me as much as other elements. Will i think maybe that was on purpose. Because part of the reason that casts kiana it was because he's attractive to the ladies as they say so maybe they added that element also to appeal to their women like what they imagined. Straight women watchers. So maybe that's what they were going to like. Everyone satisfied with this movie. We ticked all the boxes. That is a thing in hollywood where like executives and you know people who are giving all these students are like well. This isn't action movies and girls. Hey action they like love and those are the rules just so we have to put love in the action movies so that women will come to see this and it's like all genders will come for both of those teams exactly. Everyone wants to see kino and sandy. Fuck like that's that desire knows no no bounds. The sequel to speed is not speed two cruise control. It is actually the lake house so it is. I saw the lake house in theaters. Same so did i. Do you know that. Sandra bullock won the mtv movie award for most desirable women for speed this movie most desirable woman. That's a category. That was then be movie. Words are like so. I mean i covered that briefly and lalita podcast where there is a an adaptation of lolita. That was nominated for best movie kiss like tv. Movie awards fucking suck like. I've most desirable women is also the most creepy way to phrase that award truly. Yeah that's the word. That is the most desirable women. I hope she uses it as a toilet paper dispenser. It's like every action movie you can think of. I mean not everyone. But like every james bond movie every mission impossible. There's some type of like hotness for the guy and also romance for the ladies assumed lady. Yeah but you know it's the same but yeah as far as the secondary tertiary characters who are women as far as like the opening elevator sequence. There's a woman who is really scared to get off the elevator. And she's basically presented as this like woman being quote unquote hysterical and not being treated as an obstacle like it often is in movies. That same woman loses her shoe laughing. Pro on it's like it's because women be loving shoes funny to me. Also the way that sequence is shot. Oh well i. I had a i had written down Feminist icon ha ha. He lady where there's a woman in that first sequence where she's like she's got this very like she's has a blonde blow out because it's ninety four and every time we see her. We don't know anything about her but she's always going ha ha or he or she's whispering to a man like ha if she's flirting she's just we're gonna fuck later right and then when you see her pulled out of the elevator eventually. It's like you see up a woman's skirt during the elevator scene. You see like a woman but when she's being pulled out like the way that Particularly in that sequence. It doesn't happen quite as much in the bus sequence but particularly in the elevator. Sequence there's a lot of like set like very like intentionally shot yes up this skirt or like skirt riding up of of the female characters for sure like they did not need to position the camera that way the wardrobe could have been different lake. Women wear pants sometimes. It was very intentional to like show. The it's hot but sexualize this little underwear. Yeah it reminded me of the office scene in die hard at the beginning where you see a woman topless for no reason whether they're like we had to titillate the crowd at the beginning. I think it was like very similar. of asians there for.

"Where like jack is highly skilled or so we are led to believe. And that's why he's that's why it's important that he's an active participant in the story but any wasn't given any special skills or training by the screenwriter unless you count that she like speeds and gets pulled over for it and maybe it was like they. They're trying to be subtle when she first. When jack i gets on the train like stands up to him and she's like ooh true right to take charge. So i mean that's i'm i'm reaching but like i thought the like she was like at least had the confidence to put herself into that role. Yeah right yeah. I sort of i was. I felt like it would have really helped. The story truly only help the story if she had had more knowledge of driving right or just like more character just like we we we knew nothing about are really and central a great actress in that you still kind of liked watching her and she was like funny and stuff but we. We don't know details like she's on her way to work which is why she's catching the bus. But what's her job. We never went bridge also. She is not credited with the last name. I noticed that immediately she and three okay. So she doesn't have a last name. Which gave me. Very allie from lady gaga. A star is born vibes. Where it's like drags in maine. That's part of what we know about character. That's cannon alley like that's all you know. I hate that movie so complete garbage air hard agree but anyways i mean the the female protagonists not having a last name is pretty glaring and then on top of that. The only three passengers on the bus. That don't have any name at all or even a nickname are women of color on the bus. Which is like a. That's something that. I don't know i mean i guess we should. We should talk about any and then yeah to the people on the bus but any i mean it sucks because it's like i totally agree with you. Cherie that everything i like about anti has more to do with sandra bullock's performance. That how the character is actually. Because there's really not much there. There's nothing there and this happens a lot in action movies. Where the protagonist is a man with action. Movie skills like. He's good at fighting. He's good at shooting guns or whatever other like action movies skills you might have and then the one female character usually is just kind of like along for the ride or if she does have a special skill. It's not really anything that will that allows her to participate in the action parts of this movie. This movie doesn't really fall into that category because like she does end up driving the whole thing so the fact that she ended up driving the bus and like her actions are very important to this movie but again it's kind of but she again. She's not equipped with any like special training or action movie skills. She ended up needing a lot of like help and guidance. From the man who does have these scales. She's on constantly like asking jack what she should do but if she was given if she was like a paramedic for example and like had to drive an ambulance for her job like she would just have more agency even driver's ed de church authoritative view of the road. Like yeah multiple. L like i the fact that this character was whitewashed from the first draft and then that she was also stripped of her agency or authority in the situation on top of that. I thought it was really interesting and frustrating. That the two additional action movies in this action movie At the beginning and the end. Yeah we're not in that original draft that included a paramedic. And so i think that by the time the character had been whitewashed and stripped of agency that made it all the easier for people doing rewrite to damsel her because theoretically previous versions of the character would have been much more difficult to damsel. Because you knew more about her. And like i feel like they almost take advantage of the fact that the audience knows nothing about any to make it plausible that she would be easily damsel by the dennis hopper character. Because we don't know is she a very naive person. We have kind of no idea for and so when that happens. It's like i guess i have. I don't really understand whether this is something that character. I didn't think it would be something to character would go for. But also it's a police authority figure intervening and maybe she would say okay. I'll go with you. it just write it obscures. What she's about so much that it that it makes it believable that she would be dazzled like that. And that's suck. I know yet another drawback of not equipping her with any special skills or training or agency like if she did have some reason that would justify her being at that like money. Drop off location. If she was actively helping out with that situation the story would make more sense because right. Now there's absolutely no reason why a civilian would have been brought their like she probably. I don't know admittedly. I don't know anything about like police procedure. Yeah it seems like she's like waiting for jack for like a date to get off. Were if were saying bullock. It'd be like bring me home. I'll like look up your badge number later. Whatever if i need to data cop well because she's in the ambulance and he's like i'll be right back then he's not right back because she's concerned like where is it makes no sense. She would have been probably taken to a hospital because she did sustain injuries. Yes they just put like nail polish remover on her. They're like she's fine so it makes absolutely no sense that she is there and literally the only reason the script brings her long is so that she can be kidnapped and dams old frustrating accessory for sure it stinks. It stinks especially because up to that point now and this was prior to me knowing about the writing history of the anti character. My general feeling was like okay. It's definitely not perfect but this could have been a way worse right then and then the more you learn than the more movie goes on your i got. But the third act definitely like reeks to me of studio notes which is like a good and bad thing because Do i dislike the train. Sequent not at all. I think the thing is awesome. I love seeing kiato. Be like speeded up like whatever the talkies says like. Oh we never see the dead driver. There's there's no remorse for the driver or anything. That train crash in tons of sam is like oh no. I mean the driver of the train tracks. Yo yeah. I mean sam's okay. He got help we. We hope that he made it out alive and well but yeah..

"Pamela had one reason in particular. My skin is extremely averse to most fabrics except for the soft buttery feeling of leather thankfully. I found my clan of leather lovers in the biking community. It's been life changing motorcycle. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more and we're back so we have i at this point. We kind of had the copy ganda discussion and the beginning of this movie or episode. But i wanted to touch on really quickly just Some production history not use on this movie. Some of it is just like interesting and others are more relevant to our discussion. So the i mean top to bottom. This movie is a male production directed by john de bont. Who's a dutch filmmaker. Who shreen as you pointed out started as a cinematographer became director when onto direct another romp that i haven't watched in five hundred years twister. Their big movie was written by graham. Joost who is Nepotism but also is a very accomplished writer He's canadian nepotism. Imagine he did This was his first major production but he went on to make. I'm pretty sure. Several beloved coppa ganda series such as justified which i haven't seen her. I'm pretty sure it is and the americans which is it's a complicated several layers of cop ganda but there are elements of it. There's definitely elements of like serving your country nationalism to a lot of his work But that said i. I've seen the first. Three seasons of the americans. And i enjoyed it but anyways this was his script. He started writing the script when he heard about a movie called runaway train by john. The that starred john long runaway. That's something for that here. We i wonder if it is because there is an original song for speed by billy idol. That's the ending credits. Song really Lyrics are really amazing. it's speed. Give me what i need. Blast me to heaven just for loving you. Okay that's a fucked up. I agree original. Billy idol song. Yeah love him. I of course was referring to the soul asylum song runaway train such lyrics as runaway train. Never going back wrong way on on way track long. I was thinking of the ozzy osbourne song. And i had the wrong title in my mind is yes back to runaway train. The movie so grab joost heard from his nepotism daddy about this movie called runaway train. That star jon voight. That has a similar ish premise. The premise of runaway train is from. You're not gonna see this coming. A cure occur sawa so speed owes at success to a concept by a cure occur saola. So maybe that's why. I don't know but whenever that's where that was going right so it's like this kind of it's an interesting way. This movie was conceived like part of it has to do with the screenwriters father miss remembering the plot to runaway train and in the process of miss remembering it kind of conceiving of a of speed so anyway i thought that that that the way that this movie was conceived of was pretty interesting and was clearly produced because diehard had been such a success and so there were there's a whole Scholarly journal wikipedia section on the various changes. That went on during this movie. The one that i thought was particularly worth mentioning is josh. Weeden was brought on to rewrite this movie and we've discussed the paradox of joss weeden and male writers present themselves as feminists and later. You are that they were actually deeply abusive torchwood. We've we've had this discussion disappointing. Yeah it's the absolute worst. Were not vouching for him in any way here. I think that we've had. I mean i guess. Our deepest discussion was on the matriarch for the cabin in the woods episode but had this discussion In the avengers episode as well all that to say josh weeden. I guess is responsible for the majority of the dialogue in this movie as what the credited screenwriter graham. Yo said as that draw. Sweden was brought in a couple of weeks before production and he basically wrote the dialogue to fit the actors who had been cast which makes sense to me like. He rewrote the villain lines to sound more. Like dennis hopper lines and rewrote. The jack lied to sound more like kiana reeves lines right and he rewrote annie's lines to sound like a love interest. Which i don't want it to hit on there is that right The casting and the writing for this movie. It seems deeply studio notes in how it ended the way it ended where originally and this is a scholarly journal wikipedia but also is from an entertainment weekly article from two thousand fourteen for the speed twentieth anniversary but the anti character was originally a black woman and a paramedic. God yeah at which which actually makes a lot more sense because a paramedic would understand how to get somewhere fast in an emergency right right which is why she was. That character was written that way to like justify why she'd be able to like take control of a bus dri- right. Yeah right and so so. This is like a very frustrating point. Where yeah the original script had any as a black paramedic and then the rule was offered to halle berry. She said no. I don't know why. But she said no and then instead of pursuing other black actors they decided to change. The character entirely and the character was then. Rewritten to be a driver's ed teacher. That was more comic relief and that role was offered to ellen degeneres speaking of book soup customers. Oh my gosh. Not see that twist on. I don't think i would have enjoyed that but like so. Then ellen was offered the part presumably ellen pass. I don't really have info on that. And then i feel like the final phase of studio notes took hold when they said well. Let's re imagine anti as a love. Interest and then the part was whitewashed and removed of all professional authority or knowledge and it became a random white woman played by sandra bullock named anne and so essentially as far as i can understand josh sweden wrote basically that entire part based off of sandra bullock's existing persona at that time. Also like her. Like the driver's ed teacher can drive. The paramedic can drive and sandra bullock has gotten ticket for her license revoked for speeding. And that's why she's good at driving this. That's always know about her to all know and that she. She misses her car. Yes i found. I mean. I'm glad that that it's i feel like we. We're talking all the time. About how like studios potentially influence scripts but this one is like pretty well documented and the way that this character evolved was is just like so typical and frustrating. Rose like for sure. It sounds like the originally written version would have been. The most effective was ditched. Because here's one of my big issue. Well i mean. I've got many issues with this otherwise perfect movie. That's amazing That her becoming the defacto bus driver happens almost randomly. Where while it is cool that like we do see a woman driving a bus in like you know for the most part keeping her cool under pressure and like keeping the bus going the speed and needs to be going and like helping everyone stay alive and stuff like that's cool to see in a way that you know it's it's this prolonged part of the movie too you know. She's necessary to the plot of the movie but her being the bus driver basically happens randomly..

"The anecdote included. He was wearing his motorcycle helmet when he walked in. And he ordered a bunch of food and got one ticket for vicky cristina barcelona. He saw it alone. That's a woody allen movie. But i want to move on The second one is that there was once in like. I think the late nineties early two thousands a struggling actresses car broke down and she didn't know what to do. She's broken down on the side of an la like a busy l. A. street at who comes along but kiana jonah reeves and he knows how to help her and he likes says. Get out of the car. Don't worry get yourself a coffee. Whatever i'll help. He knows how to fix stuff fixes it. And then the best part of the story at the end is and who was. That actress but octavia spencer. Oh it was pre famous octavia spencer. Wild is that he's an angel from heaven. That is an angel. He's a real. He can't be real care usa perfect person. Also that's an amazing story. That is so amazing. Because you didn't know that what's going to be a famous person. She just did it for anybody. He's just got a good heart. Can you imagine like being on the road. And someone's like needs help. And the i think i thought you have is like i'm gonna help them and then you do it how. I don't know how different person anyone could be if they knew how to fix cars. If i knew how to fix cars. I'd be like i'll fix any car just to show what i can do but i don't know and also like if you see a broken down car even if you know how to fix cars the probability banking you can fix any car with any problem like you have a lot of. That's a lot of skills skills. Well thank you for sharing. Thank you for sharing. That was a lot of john but the his i mean we've said it multiple times in the show. He's an amazing person. Yes absolutely Okay so just a little. Bit of the recap left Dennis hopper has been decapitated then but but the train that they're on won't stop and there's a gap in the tracks ahead. The tracks are not finished. There's always a gap and it seems like you do gotta speed up. I mean oh as was under construction. Got that right. It's true that is true and it seems like anti might die because he can't get her loose from like being handcuffed to the poll but he's like wait a minute i'm going to speed up. And somehow that makes it. So the train goes upward onto street level and crashes up from underground onto the street and so they're saying is a red line user. I could not make heads or tails of this but also this is nine hundred ninety three s. Maybe i don't know who knows but they are safely. Make it onto the street. And then jack and annie make out on the street and then the credits start rolling so that is the story. Let's take another quick break and then we will come back to discuss.

"I mean. I feel like the ultimate implication. Was that one woman was going to go redeem the cans for money which implies that she doesn't have a lot of money at very least but but i. I don't know it's just such a bizarro movie. set up i. I think that sandra bullock genuinely doesn't awesome job in this movie where she's like she does a good job of being like i just kill somebody and then it was like no no and she was like okay. She keeps driving like a iconic duo. Sandra bullock who's also in another cop began to movie. I think a couple of years before this demolition man. so yeah yeah yeah. Yeah you're right. Forgot that she had coppa ganda prior experience mean. She goes on to play a lot of cops. Congeniality miss congeniality. That is copied ganda as well. Yeah and the heat and the heat. Oh my gosh sandy. Having a woman driving and like controlling the bus the whole time. It's kind of us. Thought that that was like i thought that we'll talk about that. Yeah there's i didn't hate that choice. But then the more. I learned about the production and writing processes of the movie them whereas like it could have been better but whatever i don't i don't hold sandra bullock personally accountable. I think she did a great job. Right right right okay. So then they get onto a freeway. That is not in use. And jack an anti flirt. While sam is dying. You win the movie. Where i'm mike did. Sam die and we didn't even find out because i would have been really but but we're talking loose but i'm like if i were writing this movie i would have no idea when to shift the focus to each character like because for a long swath of the movie. I'm like what happened to sam. He seemed like he was pretty mortally wounded right and then they just like whenever that like whenever the writer is like. Oh okay now. We're going to bring him back. You know i would have liked to see this movie in theaters. It sounds like it would've been a fun theater experience. So then the lapd show up alongside the bus and they're figuring out how to get the passengers off but the news helicopters that are following. The bus are like broadcasting. What's happening and dennis hopper is watching the news. So he knows everything that they're doing So then jack. Negotiates with dennis hopper to let sam the driver off the bus but then a woman named helen also tried to get off the bus and the bomber activates a small bomb that kills her. He has all these many bombs around. Yes yes the plot of the movie speed happens he needs. He's got a bomb for every occasion. Yeah so he has all these little like tamagotchi style. style just at random locations in case something happens right. Yes then up ahead. There's a large gap in the freeway but they managed to jump over it Thanks to some good driving. That was like one of the three things i remembered about. This movie was that they jump a highway so good. It's so they would have been such goners. This movie defeat like many action movies. I'm not saying anything new here. But the defying of gravity and other laws of physics. Don't apply yeah staggering. I kind of liked this movie really goes for it though where it's like there just like so many points in this movie were not only would they have died. They would've died like by a wide margin. Yes but the no fifty feet fifty feet. It is what it is. They're trying to make you convince like they're not gonna make it. I drove your seat watching. They're like the can't make that jump. You know they do do wish. I could have seen this movie theaters for the first time. Like there's so many moments real like oh if you're in a theory would have been like the baby moment. The highway jump moment So many myself funds. Yeah why is it cop academy so they eventually get to the airport because that is restricted airspace. Where the helicopters can't go. And then jack directs to drive around the tarmac for a while he tries to dismantle the bomb but is unsuccessful They are leaking gas now. And meanwhile harry temple figures out who the bomber is so they go to his house but he has rigged to explode and harry dies in the explosion so back at lax. The cops unload the passengers off the bus to safety which happens after they figure out that like. There's also a camera on the bus that the bomber is watching so they have to like create this like fake loop so that he doesn't notice that they're unloading passengers love that plot point right jack. An anti are the last to get off the bus. Which is the first climax of the movie. The empty bus runs into a plane on the tarmac. That i guess was empty. And there's a huge explosion. And then jack anne share a horny moment together. I was surprised that that sandra bullock's first question wasn't where people on that plane like exactly. Yeah 'cause i watched the movie twice. And i'm like missing something like did they did. They had evacuated the that they evacuated. Lax i'm sure that that's what happened or would have had to have happened so it was a currier plane so that wouldn't have passengers but there would still you would think be like personnel. Wasn't worker worker. Who is like shit. Like yeah runs away right. The first time but kiani when sandra tumble together is yes there are two tumbles in there too climaxes and you just saw the first of both i supposed to say when they tumbled. I thought that i was like well. It's not ideal but it's era as a charismatic exchange and okay. I guess i'll accept this ending a romantic thing that would happen in the wrong com or something but also i thought it was funny. The only person that ever got hurt with sandra bullock like keanu never had a scratch on. Wow this isn't that strange. I list like having trouble remembering exactly. What like the specifics of the movie. So there's that moment where kiani is trying to disarm the bomb on the bus. And then his little skateboard thing comes out from under him. And i thought his ass like his ass would've been bullied. Raped off would've been bleeding out of his butt cheeks. Death and i wondered if that was going to be like i thought at least where to get like a shot to his pants to be like. Wow my pants are gone but my my cheeks. Great or whatever what hap but like missed opportunity for choosing joke. His ass was dragging cement at like sixty miles an hour i. His ass would have been several minutes for a while. He was still without a scratch at sandra bullock was like she was because she's a delicate lady and tough but i got sand. Sandy drive the bus till the fucking finish. i like. that's kinda from assume that i mean that's nineteen ninety-four feminism right. There of abc spice girls. Feminism okay so the bus explodes. But the bomber doesn't know it exploded and he is still.

"As in the bechtol cast and we are back and here comes the recap of speed beeps beeman being be people. Why the heck is this bus going so fast. He okay so the movie opens on along chunk where we are not on us by the way i forgot that there is like two different action movies at the beginning and end of this movie. I totally forgot about that. No recollection at all. I just remember it was cans and the bizarro. you've ever the kansas unforgettable. I had a ball with the cans. And then i remember to my credit all the way back in like whatever year while like twenty twelve twenty thirteen being like. They're making out in a train car and people are just taking pacers like. That's what i was thinking like. Your frejus died. And then also the way that we'll talk about like when sandra bullock is like flirting but also her friend. The bus driver is like bleeding to death behind her. Yes there's some tonal district love is more important. You know what i mean. Love trumps everything. Even when you're even when your friend is actively dying totally about the cans so just imagine me being like what the fuck but the to the fact that there are two action movies on either side. It's a great action film for that reason like i had. They just combine so many different elements of action. Movies is just i dunno. Also the original script was just having the whole movie be on a bus but then the studio was like audiences. We're gonna get bored if we're just on a bus the whole time so let's do a long sequence before and a long sequence after the bus. Then that's when they green lit so originally. It was just a bus us. I do kind of appreciate that. They i made also. This movie is like one of those ninety nineties. Movies that you watching. You're like this looks so expensive so many explosions. So many cars getting damaged plant exploded that they milked shot was five hundred hours long. But i'm like i would. If i were the director of this movie i would milk about shot to what a nightmare it did. Appreciate the added intro in the back story because it did make jeff daniels demise a little bit more like sad you know their back story being like good friends and weird banter they have. Everything's a joke. But yeah i th the intros in batch me or the. I liked it. I liked it all. I forgot that there was. I for some reason i was like. Oh at the beginning. Kiani gets on a bus. I forgot he was a cop. I've forgotten there was a setup. I forgot there was a second climax of the movie. I forgot damsel d- all this stuff for sure. Okay so we do open on dennis hopper putting a bomb on an elevator in an office building. He then holds a bunch of people hostage on the elevator and demands a three million dollar ransom from the lapd. Several officers show up among them. Is jack travyn played by keanu reeves. Who he doesn't really play by the rules. But do you feel kinda nice for like we're introduced to him like chewing gum for the first. Like fifteen minutes cool. He's so laid back so chill chewing gum. I really liked that. They did like take the die hard character and they of like keanu reeves defied him. They just made him like more fun to be around right for sure. His partner is harry temple played by jeff daniels and the name. Harry temple is funny plus temple to catch up. Yeah okay so. They managed to save the hostages. And find dennis hopper but then dennis hopper blows himself up but it turns out the dennis hopper is not dead. I still don't fully understand that. We don't understand how they said he was dead. They didn't find anything. You just call these. I guess what it was like. Oh i was thinking like in my mind. I was like okay. It has to be believable. So maybe he like left a to there or something. Maybe he like left a body part but no he didn't do that. It's really confusing topic. Like low kia magician like he has magical elements character were like his motives seems to be changing a lot of times. I like. He's almost like the joker of speed. Where he's you're like he just wants chaos. It seems like i don't know what he wants. And we know his origin story. We know the origin story. It's revealed to us later right. I wish that they use that origin story. More effectively in store. I like they could have at least tried to say something with his origin story because they do provide it. But then it's like it goes nowhere anyways agree dennis. Hopper's fun to watch. We talked about this on our episode on the rock. Where the ed harris character is like ex military. I think the marines or something on his dad caitlyn. His wife is wife and he didn't receive the support whether financial or whatever that he was expecting after having served in the military and it was like not that the that movie was actively making commentary on. Like wow we need like better social programs and support systems for veterans and stuff like that but that is like that was his motivation in the movie. And i feel like there's kind of trying to do that. Air like there was a seed of that in speed. But it doesn't go anywhere saying something that if michael bay was making stronger commentary. That is interesting. I mean but we know they get compensated. Extremely fairly like they make more than teachers. So i'm a little confused like why they're still bitter about it. You know what. I mean like these like people are writing these characters kind of thing. Yeah i don't know and that's like re referenced repeatedly to the police officers feel that they're getting a raw deal because they're doing stunts every day and it's like well. Yeah cops are not doing. Stunts everyday purchased antagonizing people. Maybe watching these people are like. Oh cops need more. Funding should make more of the general public is like let's give cops more money. There i feel sorry for them. Well that was a huge plot issue. That i was having where whatever. We're not rooting for dennis hopper. Obviously but he's asking for. I mean comparatively to a police station budget. He's asking for a very low amount. He's asking re point seven million dollars the lapd and their last round of funding received over one billion dollars. They have three point seven million so the fact. That people's lives are. And i. And i feel like the tension. There is like well. We don't want to give him what he wants. It's like well. There's twenty lives of working class people in the balance. You might want to just give this guy what he wants and finally later you know so the fact that the the whole plot of this movie is the lapd counting their pennies. Like we don't have enough of miami as like bullshit. They have a billion dollar. Oh god i hate the lapd so much it's like creeping in your mind they're trying to influence u..

"And what he harrelson which also would have been interesting. She would have been different and would have been a little goofy or something. I don't know with woody harrelson. Yay joke here. I i think like a wesley. Snipes or woody harrelson speed would have been good but the thomson stephen baldwin. Like no the trash not interested. I can't imagine watching two hours of them do anything but it's so interesting that he wasn't the first choice because i feel like his biggest. Some of his biggest movies catapulted him. He was not the first choice. He wasn't the first choice in this or in the matrix was right smith. I think that's wild but like to while west. The movie will smith did instead of the matrix like wild. He's like not the first pick but then he ends up like just going above and beyond it being like well. This is what i can do. Oh we we see you there. They realize why we should have gone to you. I i can't believe we. We didn't our mistake jamie. What's your relationship with speed. I have a fun history with this movie. I saw this movie for the first time in college i did. This is all very goofy. But i did a semester. Abroad brag But we we were allowed to take little weekend trips with just are like friends and so my friend my dear friend kyle and i shut up kyle decided we were going to go to milan italy even though he had no money. And we're like we'll just figure it out when we get to milan which is so dangerous. And so we ended up staying at this hostile. That was very unsafe. There were all these rules like. You can't leave the hostile after seven. Pm or we'll lock you out. Wo- it was. I don't think it was actually a hostile. I don't know what it was. We were very scared We were very scared and very like whatever like nineteen had no idea what we're doing. I like whatever it is a long time ago. Yeah but they did have a really good wifi signal for whatever reason and we were so nervous and we didn't have any food because it was after seven. Pm and we're like we can't leave. We won't be able to get back so we were like hungry and tired and confused and didn't speak italian and i was just like can we just like watch a movie or something. I'm so nervous. And kyle was like you know move. You always really calms me down. And then he turned on feed and we watched it together. And it's such an. I loved it. It was such a nice memory. And i had. I only saw it that one time and then i i Returned to that memory and this really fun movie. It's fun movie so fun. It makes me wanna texts kyle. I'm going to textile. But yeah that's my. That's my history with speed. What's yours caitlyn. This was a movie that my family had on. Vhs in the nineties. When i was growing up it wasn't in my heavy rotation the same way that like back to the future or drastic park was but it was occasionally in the rotation. So i saw a few times as a kid but not since then so there. I- shreen like you. I had a twenty year gap between screenings of this movie. And i was reminded that it is extremely fun and watchable piece of copy. Ganda it is this movie is i forgot very much forgot to the extent that this movie is an lapd specific. Coppa ganda piece. I also forget. They also just made them look way cooler than they do. They do like their outfits are cooler there. I don't know they're hot. they're their their keanu reeves. They're smart and capable. They're always yelling about how they have sex and like right. None of this is true to let like. Let's all be all three of us very firmly. I think we can all agree that. Fuck the lapd. Yes a cab but like extra for them. It's a it's a special kind of hatred that we save for the lapd and this is very effective. Copy ganda for them. Yeah i think i mean. We'll talk about this later in the episode but the exact moment that this movie came out was a time where the lapd needed some image rehabilitation. Let's say because this movie was written and produced the year after rodney king. And oh my gosh. So it's that's a good point. I did not put that together and it was released the week before the oj simpson highway chase. So i i think that when this movie came out i was saying that a lot of people were like. How did the movie speed know that we were going to be really interested in highway chases because it happened literally the week after speed came out. What if that inspired oj. Simpson what if you like. I couldn't amazing movie. Oh god fucking speed was the catalyst for that wild. I mean movies are influential so could be conscious choice to you. Know he wouldn't even really realize. I think he did. I think he i mean. Rip nicole but it's just yeah. It's so the exact moment that this came out was such a. I don't know it was just a very bizarre. But also i would guess fairly strategic timing for the lapd to have a really popular piece of copy. Ganda come out around. This movie was shot in nineteen ninety-three so would have been like less than a year after king very intentional for sure. I mean that just goes to show. It's like there's no really accidents with what he's not usually with. What gets picked up as far as like if it's political or not. I think movies get picked up by means zone. That's unsettling yeah for sure and yet it's a rob. It's god damnit. Yeah god damn. I think we can replace. I think we can make a universe or like a group of people aren't cops but are bad asses. I i can't figure out who they are but it totally would have worked it totally would have worked if like keanu was just like mr. I don't like whatever and that nineties action movie way of. Like i'm mr action and like he didn't i don't know i don't think it was necessary but the way the movie is written it's very like and all the cops were together and cops are amazing heroes and their head that point over and over and they're so smart and they figure out puzzles and but i'm also thinking back to so many action movies of this decade of decades before and after it that have protagonist who are cops like that is yes so many action movies. So that's what i'm saying. It's like a lot of movies. Make they need like a group of good guys. You know a group of heroes you can root for and this was all before obviously marvel comic movies so i feel like people just wanted a good group of guys to root for and they were so. I think there has to be a different group like this. You know who it should be. Who should be a group of vigilante podcasters. Oh yes ra. Robert might be listening. Don't say please don't rubber. I'm talking specifically about the three of us. We should be action heroes. We should be the generation. Yes sarah seventy moments in this movie room like well. That's where i would've jumped out a window. That's where i would've just left the bus. Yeah i mean. I guess it's already kind of having this conversation anyways. I mean yeah the the amount of cop agenda is so wild and sent me back into the amount of times that copy ganda sneaks into genres. You wouldn't even expect these inaction genre. At least it's a pretty expected trope basically where right. I think that really people's only criticism of this movie at the time was that it was like..

Such study bus very sturdy very sturdy. Look i'm so stuck to be talking about speed. Ultimately is coppa ganda however there is public transit in movies. I feel like there's there hasn't been a bigger moment for public transit. I know in an as a public transit user and lover. I was like calcined. Wow wow we never see the bus and we never. It is underrepresented in cinema. I agree. I mean yeah. I was really happy to rewatch this. I'm glad that we went with this movie. Because i just love him and i will watch anything with him. Even if it's coppa ganda it's which which in the ninety s it really was. He's in quite a few cop agana films because he was he was hired for this movie off of the strength of the perceived strength but are of point break right where he was also in the lapd after cop. Yeah okay so real. Quick the show. We examined movies through an intersectional feminist lens using the bechtel test. Simply as a jumping off point the bechtel test of course is a media metric creed by queer cartoonist alison. Bechtel sometimes called the bechtel wallace test. Our variation on the test is to people of any marginalized gender. Have to have names have to speak to each other and that conversation has to be about something other than a man. Ideally it's a meaningful narrative relevant conversation. But if it's a like to line exchange you know we will allow it. I guess depends on the situation. I understand why. You're a big so specifically because i encountered that say like okay so i just i i think it does pass between anne and a woman we later. Learn as helen. She said eight test right before ha moments before. Helen's death where she's like hell no. I was like wow. Wow they did. It and i would argue that. That exchange is narrative relevant because we need to find out that. Helen is very anxious person on the road. Which is partially why she ultimately meets her demise. And that's relevant enough for me. Skip ahead should. We have saved that that reveal that. I don't mind if we blow our load earlier in the show. Yeah okay yeah. Our show is not really a despite the name which we came up with five years ago. Our show is not about the back door test which which this movie does pass which pass exactly once about voting's anxiety exactly what i don't think sandra bullock talks to another woman the entire movie. I don't believe so. And i have a huge issue with that too because there's so many women on that bus mostly women of color as well and it's like oh it was only the men talked. Only the men passengers hotline or names other than helen. Right there were like five male passengers that had full arc's like and then the women in the background are like that's all you get not fair. Yes okay so what is your relationship history experience with this movie. I just remember watching it as a kid with my parents. And i it's been at least two decades since i've seen it since then so i was really happy to rewatch it. I didn't remember a lot. So i was still pretty like engaged with the plot because i was like i knew there was. I knew the like the images right. I just like i didn't know how it ended. I forgot i saw it. You know i remembered like other there. Yeah but yeah i really. I was a keen fan very young. And then i instill fan and i really liked watching keanu give orders. When i was a kid all i remember he is incredible easing cry. He's an incredible person And he's like caitlin taxi about this earlier. He's like he so hot in this move sir. He was twenty nine. Isn't that wild syndrome book. Well my god. They're they're i mean okay. Is the love story. She earned in. Yes duo on these characters to fuck yes kiana reeves according to director. Jen debone john. I'm not sure how does his name Kiana was cast in the movie speed because he is quote vulnerable on the screen. He's not threatening to men because he's not that bulky and he looks great to women obama quoque which is obviously an extremely lake gender. And hetero normative your way to describe somebody but he's right. He's extremely sweet and sensitive hot. I was reading about the casting process and he was like the sixth choice. This car we who are the top choices so an all of these would be lesser movies. Except one or two that i would be interested in seeing versions of keanu ultimately wins but they wanted stephen baldwin. That would have been terrible go. Stephen baldwin said no too much like diehard. Which isn't the worst point. But i prefer this movie. Die hard because it's on a bus with Canneries next they asked or they consider tom cruise and tom. Hanks no no wesley. Snipes think that could have been interesting. I will be a fan of that..

"Their rekindling like not only were they very much on board with him as part of the family which i do believe they still one hundred percent but like they were helping him. They were co-conspirators and helping him get quarterback so this has been the biggest one eighty of a lifetime. and let's not forget that the sides that episode there was also the entire episode that centered around the fact that scott was so nervous about the show ending because he felt like they weren't going to be able to spend as much time together that he was joining in all of their activities. In the things they do that he normally would have no place in just to be able to keep himself inserted in their lives in the way that he wanted to and feel comfortable in new all these years like his biggest concern in this show ending not even in courtney's relationship in the show ending was that he wouldn't see the family as much and it was kind of sending him on a little bit of a spiral so take the show ending and then couple that with this new relationship in terms of how he feels about the family and his place in the family. I can imagine that those two things combined have been insanely insanely difficult for him. Oh yeah and i know that a common responsible. You decide is like yeah. We'll the show is completely dramatized. Yes but even in the episodes that are the most dramatize the most kind of bullshit. There's always a seat of truth that has to leave his way through. And that's why. I think that fear for scott was very real. Obviously the way they went about acting it out him showing up to work was khloe interested in with scripted. But like that is in my opinion a fear that was very real and also something that the family grew more and more aware of and we got it very different view of. They're filming. Because i think a lot of us were naive to the fact of how they did it. Like i think in my head and we'd spoken about this. It was like okay. They hung out and the cameras were just there in captured. The lives in the cameras were kind of around them all the time and in this last season when scott has the sphere about the filming in not being able to see the family as much we really get the understanding of like no. There are scheduled times. They're told to show up at this location at this time or they're gonna go to the house this time film for this many hours so it's not just. That scott was nervous because they wouldn't hang out to run. The cameras it was like scott was losing in his mind. That's scheduled hang out time and he was saying we'll. We'll do dinner every single week. Once a week and kim was like once a week is a lot and that was the spiral of like. Okay i no longer have these scheduled things which almost takes like the okay well. Everything scripted a step further because you were scheduling the times that you were going to hang out plus on top of that the rest of the family kinda being like yeah. Well we see each other. Lots of will see other when we see each other. I can't even honestly talk about that. Because i remember us both having what i would like to call whiplash. When we had that realization it was like the biggest understanding of our naievty towards the filming process. Looking at it from scott's perspective was very jarring right totally. This company is a complete game changer. When it comes to shaving. I honestly was introduced them a while back when we first started working with them. And it's totally changed entire shaving routine so as called athena club and the actual razor is designed with built in skin guards to help prevent razor burn while also being gentle on curves so the way that it works is at the actual razor-blade surrounded by water activated sierra and it has shea butter heireann gasset so i mean holleran acid for music like my holy grail skincare product. And basically. you're hydrating as you're shaving. So i'd never gotten razor. Burn any those bumps and then they have a razor kids. Only nine dollars comes with two blade. Heads magnetic coke for shower storage and your choice of handle color. I personally have the light. But they have a bunch of colors. And then you don't have to worry about. Running out of refills are being stuck with dole. Overuse razors because you can choose. How often the replacement blades shipped to you for free. So it's fresh. Ready to use razors..

"Scott posted like five or six stories saying they're all talentless promos and every single time. I saw that circle around his name up. I was like please be something. Please bureau response. Please be an answer and it never came. Well let me ask you something. That i wanna get into it. The sources us. About courtney but like. I was trying to think about this as well today if he were to respond. What would that look like. Because he's not getting on his instagram stories in doing a video. Is he going to release a statement like a source tells. Tmz a source tells page. Six is is going to be an story post is he gonna just never say anything and let it die out like what is this. Look like i know you know. The kind of devil works harbor. Kris jenner works harder. People of the world think that this is all hype. Further hulu show. I personally can't even express how much i disagree with that. Because the kardashians do a lot of shit for fame for cloud the one thing that courtney is never going to do is put her kids at jeopardy like their emotional potential sanity at jeopardy and this is definitely not something that i would imagine the kids if they could understand would respond well to so i personally enrolling now in out of the equation me too and also i don't believe scott would put his kids through that either. I mean obviously you can make the argument here. That like he did this in the first place. But i don't think he would. In any way shape or form uses kids in terms of promo in terms of what it would look like if he posted something on his story. Well first of all if the in that scenario where the dm's were fake. He obviously could've posted on his story saying they weren't real. That would be option number. One which is kind of a little bit what i was looking out for. I guess option number two if he were to respond would be like a black screen with tax. Basically saying it was inappropriate. What i did i apologize. Horny something very short and simple option. Number three is a source tells. News scott is incredibly embarrassed about what happened. It was a low moment for him etcetera etcetera. If i was a betting man. I probably would say it's a source told us because listen the whole text. Onscreen hasn't been done before. Even kim did it when all the divorced was going on with gonyea you know khloe. Does it a lot on twitter. But in terms of the way that's got typically operates on social media. I just see him. More as a source guy. I think so too but again. This isn't really something that we're used to. So i mean. Listen i i agree. I think that every single time. I saw something pop up saying that he had posted a news story. My mind immediately went to. Is this going to be about that. It wasn't at all which is what you know again. After twenty four hours leading me even more to a source told the news kind of guy but every single time i saw that story pop up i was like could it be something. Could it be a response. Could it be anything that has to do with us julie. So no that red circle. I was one with the red circle. I know wish. Don't you wish scott how to close friends or like on scott's close friends. Oh do six kidding. Or even courtney and travis says oh forget. Forget the close friends i want. The group chat will never get the group chat. Obviously we're heading towards the close friends though. Could you imagine what that group chat was like. I know and i promise. We'll get into the news thing in one second but like the kardashians have drama all the time and so much of that is external. You know so. I don't know it's potential fused with other people or most. Recently i remember when the lamar trade thing happened on clothes photo and we were saying you know. This type of machinist doesn't normally happen and we were saying quote within the family right but this is on another level because the one thing that never happens other than on the show. When you see kylian kendall get into a fight. Or the infamous courtney and kim fight of the most recent seasons other than that you never see the family fighting and i consider scott within the family and i know this isn't directly than fighting however i would call this them not having a united front and the number one thing that kris jenner has prioritized in season one and has continued as their fame. Skyrocketed was at the family will always stand together. And the reason that this is so shocking. I think if you are somebody that followed the crash as closely as we do because all of a sudden scott feels like he's on another island here and even in the midst of their break-up that was never the feeling that you got bright and again this is kind of the conversation that we had been having a lot as well in terms of scott feeling like on in terms of scott feeling like he's on another island or us viewing him that way is obviously the reason that we are feeling that way is because of this most recent incident but one of the things we were talking about in terms of. Why this break up or not. Even this break-up but why travis in corny being together is so potentially detrimental for scott is because it takes it a step further. It's not just that he lost courtney. It's scott standing alone on this island or feels very alone on this island. It's because the rest of the family and his relationship has changed. Not saying it's dawn. I'm not saying he doesn't have relationship them nothing like that. I'm just saying that. The dynamic that he knew for so many years has clearly changed. And so it's not just okay. Get over the breakup. Scott like it's been a couple of years you have to move on. You're obviously not getting courtney back it's like this guy came in and completely took your place in the family in a way that none of these other boyfriend even come close to doing so now. It's not just that he's lost courtney it's that the whole family element of it is clearly at play here. Yeah i mean guys in the most recent season. Which was i'd say films in july twenty twenty one of the biggest episode centers around the entire family kind of working with scott to help design a dream date for him..

"Audible. How can a ranch myself have the guess or times arrest myself available or other rica's when we say s sometimes it's not only tower. It sometimes can say yes to i. Believe as holy effect on on like the person equipment also provided Santa right. I find this interesting. The imagery that you evoke right these instructions because you know since we're talking about basically learn how to manage life and how to manage interactions with other people in your own life. You know there are no instructions and so book the to create more of it are we grow. We learn her ball of or like border boats mentally and that both on child. We need about the breath. I think distractions are billable in life again was talking about talk to set boundaries boundaries. Is something that i owned by myself for myself. Also related so. I think he's instruction on dispersal are or at your doesn't get you know how all have human means yeah. I agree to the extent that this is something that many different people will often have gone through. We're kind of learning by experience what it means to set boundaries and how beneficial we can be if it's done correctly or if it's done with care right at the same time feel like it is not as straightforward as an instruction manual in that no one or you know not many people are very few people say specifically toe you. Wo- you try this while when that happens so it's a lot of error was instruction at least to me is something that this is kind of the only way or at least one of the best ways available. It's you know you you can. Rita is right here. It's all in one place whereas what we go through in terms of setting up boundaries is something that we not only have to try to understand what to do but we also need to go out and gather information so it's almost like we're writing an instruction book for ourselves. Instructors are bath difference between her mother. Yeah or about or incidences of this. Or right. And ed meet the or right. Yeah i agree with that and also the idea that and the reason why said we're writing instructions because we also have to adapt a general rule for all human beings. Let's say you know making sure that we are taking care of ourselves as well as being helpful somewhere between the line between individuality and collectivism we also have to find out how we individually tends to manage our interactions with other people. Like for instance for somebody who has a very hard time being direct with other people than what will work well for somebody who is much more. Direct will not work well for that person who is a lot more indirect in their actions and their communication styles. You pointed out that this is something. That's very human and and that's obviously something that i picked up on him in my poem as well. Which is why. I sent you my particular poem which is called running low. Some gonna read that we can talk about it running. Whoa i have no love for you. I'm running low in-store when it was plentiful they came took a robbed never replenishing never restocked. Now is running low now. I need you to invest your love. Before i can give you mine. I need new seeds to grow with to cultivate. A new harvests euro centrists and as a discuss the same. Also say you are describing. What ronnie earl by. What's comes up to. Ronnie mutation has run And how it the let you learn how it says. 'specially that line when you say now. I need you to calm before i could give you martin about a four what you meant by that. I think that's the nothing quite warms. Yeah yeah i think. Besides the imagery one a differences is like which route were taking in terms of dealing with the idea running low on energy on the sense of oneself like psychological health. I think for me. I wrote that i need you to invest. Your love is because i've found in my own behavior. I've always been the one to sort of geared away love for our giveaway loving actions or performing loving actions whether or not the person who's receiving it is worth my continual performance of loving actions toward them. So now i'm saying. I need to have people in my life who can show me that. They love appreciation me too. And i need to see that before. What in this in this poem. It has a sequence. But i think in real life is much less defined in terms of sequencing because as you said previously. We don't perform honorable acts. We don't help others with any returns in mind at the same time. It would be nice if we were living in a relationship or a system of relationships where we are taking care one another rather than just this one way direction of helping others. I'm like thank you. We turn wrong wrong emotional response. We're talking about not only given we call it also allowed before rounds never clinton wile audible sea viper over his carcass They've developed.

Tory leadership battle hots up, and all change at Change UK Politics Weekly podcast

"This is politics weekly. I'm Heather Stewart Naza time for us to believe in ourselves. What we can. And that's why I am standing to be leader of the conservative party Boris Johnson began his leadership campaign in earnest this week, telling him peas he was best placed to beat labor and put Nigel Farage back in his books. Meanwhile, leadership rivals queued up for an audience with Donald Trump as the US president blew into town for his photo opportunity with the Queen the contest kicks probably next week. So is it still for assist to lose this week? It's all change at change. You pay the six of eleven piece, depart, the flushing party. We talked to one of those sticking with it, Chris, Leslie. That's all in this week's politics weekly. And then there were eleven early casualties of the Tory leadership race this week were Kibble house, and James cleverly who withdrew as the party agreed new rules to weed out candidates with little chance of winning the six front runners with enough declared supporters are burst Johnson Dominic Robb, Jeremy hunt. Michael g-o-v such each of it. And Matt Hancock Johnson is current favorite to be anointed. His prime minister in the week of the twenty second of July, but a month is a long time in politics. Could we be looking at prime minister movement or dope, McVeigh by the summer while I'm joined to discuss all this by Katie balls from the spectator, and Ellie Mae o'hagan and Rafael bear from the guardian Katie was going to say you had a ringside seat at the hustings on Tuesday night, but you, you were the ringmaster hustings on Tuesday night, and we journalists most of journalists were outside in the corridor. Sad to say what, what was the mood like in there in the room managed to get a seat? So I was chairing the discussion and it was one one by one interviews. I think demeanor was fatty polite atmosphere. I think ahead of it, there was some talk that both could be heckled. And it was this is because it was the one nation caucus. So this is the group of conservative MP's headed up by Ambrosia NICKY, Morgan, now, I think there are lots of conservative MP's would describe themselves as one nation conservative term. Isn't it exactly? Specifically this group, they have the declaration of values which relate to things like having a United Kingdom the environment at free enterprise. I think what the best known for is don't like no deal, and they are opposed to nodule Brexit. So both Johnson describes himself as one conservative useless to saying that he went take canoe deal Brexit off the table. So there was some of you that this could be a real confrontation. But I think everyone listened to ever and had to say and before you an hour after gone splash on the front, free newspapers his comments, so love invasion did gap from the then of. Associates. Boris Johnson's pitch is was that he wasn't going to soften his new deal Brexit nine, but he did try and play up of the things that he would have in common with the MP's and the room. I think what's really benefiting Boris Johnson right now is someone called Dominic Robb because compared to Dominic Robb Bros. Johnson, seems less right? Win some of the MP's in the center of the Tory party on various issues, and that's making them think that if they have to have Brexit Hugh, is willing to countenance a deal Brexit. Bruce Johnson is a less bad option than someone like Dominic grump. I'm Michael go wrath last night. At the second round of these hostage not shared by Katie. We should say put himself in different position again. Didn't he said on what the idea of October thirty first? So he's the sort of even slightly more sensible Exeter's. Yeah. This has been Michael goes position for some time, which is essentially sort of the most as it was author, dogs, true believe of breaks. It's here up. To the point of accepting no deals. Because now for a number of reasons that he can't quite go that far and say, you know what? No deal is something we should do partly probably just because he is just a slightly more rigorous serious thinker than some of the people who prepared to go along with no deal. Chatting, I think he genuinely understands the hazard for the state for the economy. That would be involved in that I think, particularly the department that he was in, when he was environment. Secretary just introduced him to a lot of the practical problems that go along with doing no deal. And also, he has to recognize he's very tight cool politician, he recognizes that, you know, between. I think he's absolutely right. What she said about Dominic Robb based carving out this space football to be sort of as it were one row into simultaneous when you've got someone who's out in the oil, being completely bonkers and that's actually quite good position for Boris to be in. And so Michael really has to then pitch himself as insofar as a center of the conservative party unity. Can't that, that would be him. And I think broadly speaking, that is at least logically true. If you did a kind of a growth with a sort of X Y axis that sort of leave one end remain on the other tra- Thatcherite with slash and burn pros therapy on one, acts and one end sort of old skirts, though, wet invest spend money on stuff at the other end, and it sort of scatter plot on that axis of where all the parliamentary Tories are you'd probably find they've pretty much in the middle of that the problem is that being that Younes you can also means you alienate people on various fringes, but he, I think he's probably put himself in fairly tactically, g position and any took him out. Dominic mopping out out in the aisle. There last night's contribution from him was that he'd be willing to provoke parliament to suspend parliament, if necessary to get no Brexit, no deal Brexit food. That's pretty extraordinary, isn't it? Yes. Absolutely extraordinary. And I mean, this is a very cliche thing to save it. I, I wonder what the. Action would have been in if, if a labour MP had said that, I mean, I feel that people would have been saying it Stalinism is going to be tanks on the lawn of parliament square. You know, of course, perogie parliament is a crazy idea. And yeah, I think we should really reflect on what's going on in the conservative party. I think something really extrordinary is happening in that party. That is the case. Katie's ideas that would have seen credibly fringe now in mainstream discussion in the Tory polcy I would save on the parade and parliament comment. Dominic robb. He is that minority view of all the candidates, and actually, like a lot of people have reacted very badly to the idea. You're going to provide parliament, so I mean, it is something that you can't say they would do it in that room. It landed very badly and is interesting that in the hustings chat, every single Brexit he was saying, they would Constance emoji Brexit. So sad Javid. Andrea leads him and Boris Johnson explicit. Early route parading parliament. So I didn't think it is a majority view in the conservative party Andrew, let's inset that she consulted Klux at some point, and had wet this wasn't really viable option such Javid said that he's what parliament had to have a say. So, I think what you seeing is when it comes to Dominic Robb, what of the votes, he is going to try and make the final t now the European research group, that is a great gift, the eurosceptics of the policy that feel most strongly on having clean Brexit. Now, I think by having this dividing line between himself and Boris Johnson. I think it helps Boris jokes in many respects, I think Dominic Robb is trying to pick up this European research group votes to try and get further and free the rans, and he now has something to say, I am more serious about delivering no deal than my rivals less sanguine about the tool, even if it's only a tiny amount even if it's just only grow Francois talking about perogie Parman because Elliott this really is happening here is. Constant ratcheting of the parameters of was a normal discussion about what you should do in this country, further and further away from things that are practical. And so when you hit talk about a sort of global trade breaks or clean Brexit, or no deal Brexit. There's really no discussion of actually involves what practically that means. The reason Dominic Robb way, anyone would entertain parochial parliament is because there is this question of, could you actually persuade parliament, is that some potential parliamentary obstacle to delivering no do? And even the quite moderate will self stop motoric candidates in this race when they sable I wouldn't do not. We Michael go says, will we pretty have to get another extension their explanation is because parliament won't permit no do now? That's a pretty cowardly way of framing it. Because actually the reason not to do is because it's a terrible terrible idea. There's no such thing as a clean. Brexit, immediately often odeal your whole legal system, your economy in chaos your force back into in the Goshi action with the EU but for a much weaker position is properly bonkers. No one was seriously. Counseling in two thousand sixteen or twenty seventeen is only Lanzoni gender now and as the sort of the framing of the debate moves it just becomes a entirely normal thing to this Gus. And when half of the field of Tory candidates are prepared to discuss that quite normally that suggests a as was just said that the conservative parties in, that's a very peculiar place, ROY now when I'm part of that is because the backdrop of the discussion is what's going on impeachable this week where there's a by-election and Nigel. Farage is Brexit party looks as if it might do quite well, right. That's, that's what's in people's eyes were having this discussion. I think there is a sense that the Brexit party if you're going to the various frets to the Tory vote, the Brexit party frat is tina's at greater threat right now than the liberal Democrat vote now it's interesting. Lots of Tory candidates went to say, hey, we can actually win both voters back. I think never skepticism as how you unite voters who have said many times they want to know deal Brexit. They were only take that as being a Brexit that they would accept as fitting. Description, and how you those remained conservative OTC feel very isolated by the party and looking at the nipple Democrats. And I think he looked at the European election. Results teapot, is very well very clear Brexit positions. But completely opposing and that's a riddle I think every main party when it comes to working at had to get a big coalition of voters. I think on the Brexit polity point, there is a general sense, and I think you saw this in the hustings this week that such Javid stage loss of support. Actually, when he said the way to beat the Brexit party is by not being the Brexit party, and I think there are lots of Tory MP's you feel that you need to deliver Brexit. But you shouldn't be doing straight the noise Farraj playbook to do that anyway. Let's talk about Johnson was a briefing with a Tory poster Lord Haywood this week, who was saying he comes out with the most popular candidate. So he's the conduct people most not recognized like he also comes out the most unpopular candidate. He's an incredibly divisive, and polarizing figure isn't he would lay relish, the chance of taking on Boris Johnson to think gem, an election. I don't think that labor would relish taking on Boris Johnson though. I, I also think that we shouldn't underestimate Michael g-o-v is particularly fees. I mean I is total speculation on my part, but, particularly if he's still in contact with his old colleague, Dominic Cummings, then labor probably will be in trouble who, of course, helped run the vote leave campaigns by significant figure in the vote leave campaign. Yes. On this very talented, political tactician. Boris johnson. I think Boras he, he represents the kind of era that we're living in.

How blockchain technology could help developing countries creative sector

"This is Matt wells at UN news while with growth of fourteen percent per year in China alone. So called creative industries sector that includes everything from fashion design to carnivals could be game changer for emerging economies. In new report by the United Nations conference on trade and development or tired suggests in an interview with Sarah and Bangui from your news. The agency's Pamela coke Hamilton explains that these countries need to put sufficient digital safeguards in place such as blockchain technology to reap the full benefits. Creative industries includes music ashen audiovisual film jewelry design food advertising marketing cartoons animation. Anything that involves the creativity aspect of our work festivals? Of course carnival which everybody loves and so on how is the market doing for China? Very well. They have they have grown exponentially. In the last thirteen years thirty two billion. They were there at one sixty point five billion the rest of the countries are growing slower, but still going Moffat. They're going up four point three to five percent, which is incredible given that there was a downturn in international economic sphere. And consequently goods fell, but the creative industry continued to grow would suggest that it is an area that we ought to pay attention to. How can we explain China's lead in creative industries compared to other countries such as United States, South Korea? I would say the Chinese growth was four times that of the United States. It's a combination of factors one China has put in place over a very long period of time an economy that's been able to out produce other countries you add to that. Now, the intellectual property that's been transferred there in terms of design in terms of creativity by other countries, they have been able to know Marshall all of that to be able to. Re-export Selena essence, they have garnered the best of both worlds both on the production side, and on the creativity side. So that they've been able to show growth in that area much higher than other countries have fourteen percent per annum, you mentioned blockchain could you elaborate a bit on the how it will help developing countries economies innocence, what the blockchain does is it creates transparent process by which the person from the very beginning of the chain. All the way to the very end is able to see where their product is going home. It is being an in a way it tends to take out the middleman, which is also very important. So the ability to make money from your product the ability to protect IP rights of your product. This is done through digital certification. The ability to get the funds back to you through the online money, mechanisms etc are facilitated by blockchain, whereas the mechanisms now don't allow and so what you find is a lot of creatives do not get one there. I p protect. Action to their royalties or three the kind of monetization that they need. The assumption is that if developing countries are able to put these mechanisms in place, then their ability to track the monetization of their creative property will be much better than it. Currently is because what's happening now is that as you move to for example, the downloads for itunes unsawn. We lose a lot of money, we produce music. It goes to the international eight Younes or whoever, you know, the streaming platforms. They make most of the money on that. So the attempt is to see how we can bring back clawbacks some of the funds out there by creating these blockchain mechanisms to bring the money back. What's the future and challenges when it comes to creativity shoot? What's the next step two steps? I would say one is to get the debt, for example, one of the major countries I find that's missing. Here's Trinidad and Tobago. They have one of the best and most famous carnivals in the world. They're not in here, we need to get countries to collect the data and to report. So what we have. Do is help them find mechanisms to do. So the second area is how do we get them to leapfrog to the digital platform to the digital space and put in place regulations. And mechanisms I think those are the two challenges that we have I think that the creative industry has the potential to be a game changer further developing countries, but we have to grasp the opportunity, and we have to make it a priority.
