And I have to confess it looked like the schedule of associate sociopath like. I was out constantly. I seemed to always be out. And a few months into I couldn't really remember why I had to go out that much. Oh I guess what had to? Go out drinking that much a little things seemed a little strange to me. and. I'm I.

That is another one. That I don't even have the imagining of. Every Doron audience what would it be like to write like that? Really what I sat down to do I really when I started had no exception.

There's always a suspicion I guess stokes they are politically dangerous because they speak of limitation. In politics we we don't like to be reminded of human limitation.

Rightly when you're young, you don't really WanNa hear that question the older you get even if you don't WanNa hit other people make it clear. Your friends, your family.

To me that that's a little of writing is knowing what I call do what is not within my capacity to and understanding what I what I can manage. So that was helpful to me 'cause I was in a complete. State like I think for the first week of the pandemic. No one could be more ashamed themselves than I was had. No. Ability. A two night backbone. No. None of the spirit that you saw the people I really saw my. Old Ways in which I'm not courageous. To put it. In it's so it's interesting to hear you say that because obviously the you know the common refrain, the the slogan of Stoicism is basically that fear does more harm to us than the things that you're afraid of. And as someone who you know was in dialogue with you this first early shameful weeks of of coronavirus because I feel the same way as you do. You know it's interesting to me.

And it's also linked to Zedi reading the audiobook of her new essay. Collection. Intimations. Also in that description, you will find a link. To my revamped website. I think I said towards the beginning of the year that. My revamped website was only a couple of weeks from completion. But as with many things in my professional life. took. A little longer. Than anticipated. But anyway it's done I think and It's at the same address that my old one used to be at over the new one has been built. Using squarespace my podcast spouses and on that new website you will find. Everything they used to be on the website. And also. Everything that was on the Adam Buxton APP. Now if you were one of the people who downloaded the Adam Buxton APP back in the day. Thanks very much indeed. Hope, you got some fun out of it. But it is no longer being updated. So it still exists. I. Don't think it's going to vanish puff smoke just yet. But at some point I, guess it will disappear. And of course, you shouldn't try to purchase. Bonus content using the APP anymore. I mean nothing bad will happen I. Think it probably won't work. Also. All, that bonus content, which some of you accuses. Able. To. Access exclusively years before. Anyway. Now, it is available for everyone's check out. You will find several whole podcast episodes essentially that have never been. Released as part of the main podcast Robert. One, that I particularly like is a conversation with my old friend Garth Jennings that we recorded a few years back where. I asked him about all the amazing music videos that he'd made with his company hammer and tongs in the thousand, nine, hundred blur and Jarvis Cocker and. Fat Boy Slim. And people like that. There is. Some bonus audio with John, grant, they're. an interview with bricks. Smith's Dot. X. Of the full and there's an interview with. Director Chris. Smith talking about his film Jimmy Andy Great beyond about Jim Carey playing Andy. Coffman and. Going a bit crazy during the making of man on the mood. That's another good one that is a good chunk of extra chat with James Casta. And Johnny Marr. And it's a wonderful place to spend some high quality time. What else have I got that I've got? Well. Lots of videos, countryman videos, and. Various bits and pieces from Bob and things that I've done. With Joe over the years, it's hard to Put everything I'd like that because so much of it just immediately gets yanked. By Youtube Copyright Algorithms but. I was able to put some stuff up including a few bits and pieces from the adamant Joe Dvd especially the. The behind the scenes thing that we made the story of Adam Joe, various outtakes, and bits and pieces and old home movies and things like that. That used to be an extra on the steel as an extra on the Adam and Joe DVD, but now we're living in. Post Dvd Times. I'm not sure if I've put. A lot of podcast jingles there at the moment, but that's something I will get to. You know it's it's ongoing. Basically I'm hoping that this new website is going to be easier for me to update than the old one was, and especially the APP you see that was the main problem for me with the APP. was that it was a bit beyond me technically. And because I'm not very organized, just took a long time for. Anything new to get put up that I would like to say at this point that I'm very grateful indeed to toby and Kevin it really quite something limited who developed the APP for me in the first place and put a lot of work into it. So thanks guys. I do appreciate it and I'm also very grateful to kneel who has built this new site and showed me how to work it. Thanks a lot neal. If you submitted your email address via the APP, please don't worry. You'll details still secure. and. They are not being passed on to third parties and nefarious Internet Ruffians. That safe and sound. and. It may be that get my act together in the coming months. You'll actually received some updates about Tour dates and things like that and maybe book events. Oh. Yeah and the resheduled book tour dates. Are On the new website of course. As well as so much else but that's it today.

I interviewed her for MTV two and white teeth was out and it's been a thrill to watch Zedi grow and operated a public intellectual dropping great novels and Dope Essays and showing herself to just be a really interesting person to listen to I mean putting the also of her accident aside in person ladies as smart and it's fun is her greatest books and she's disarmingly humble in a way that just makes you want to root for her success. So settle in I asked her to talk to me for an hour and we sat there for two. We sat there in our studio at seventy eighth and Broadway and just. This is the most fun episode I've had yet so. I'm. Proud? To. Present. Eighty Smith. On tour ratio. Writing. What do you love about it? I like. I like having an artificial. Set Task To fill the day set by yourself. It's it's that's pleasant. I mean what else you can do its? Own Life and I like the idea of a series of. Tasks except myself completely unnecessary toss that nobody. Has To care about Oh but I sent them a series of books in my mind and then when they're done. I'll be done. I think everyone does that with their life is writing a very. Kind of formal way to do it I can measure out his this way. So. Do you set day go? Goals no because if I did would be very frustrated. So no but I have hopes if every day but I haven't written in months and months at the moment. I'm reading I'M IN A. Like period of reading and preparing but Preparing to start another one. Yeah. But it's much more important for me to be able to read every day them right every day I live without writing if I don't get to read I get very. antsy. Really. Yeah. So how many hours a day reading at the moment all all hours that I'm not. Raising children. So you drop them off and you go. Pick them up. So for about six thousand reading, and then I pick them up again and then after their menu read again. It's The moment is normally like that but at the moment, that's it. Yeah. What are you reading? I'm meeting a lot of stuff about. At eighteen hundreds for something after right. So it's just a of. Research I suppose nonfiction nonfiction near for the most part some novels to sometimes I. Use the bedtime reading with the children as surreptitious. Research, they don't realize it but. The reason we're reading David Copperfield. They need to know that. What are you love so much about reading. I. I really good book recently gyco fronts this with a British writer. WHO said? That actually it's kind of addiction and the strange thing about it is it's a sanctioned addictions and nobody tells you off. For reading a lot when you're a kick particularly if you're. From. A working class or emigrant home as I was everybody's very enthusiastic about it because it seems like a good sign. But what he said in his case Easel. So reading addict, he had very ill sister who died when he was young and reading for him was a way of escaping the world and I think that's always basically true I don't think children who read as much as I did when I was a child are reading because they're delirious with joy. It is a kind of addiction is a kind of escapism and and you realize it when we come to this poker I i. Go. Maybe. Five heavy books in my bag. What did I imagine? What's going to happen on the twenty two minutes away right. What did you bring? Inside Victorian. Home. A book about historical. Mikey Century Court case I lost a load of. Heavy, back books. So. I think reading is just the way I am in the world. That's how I operate and what was interesting about process book is I heard. Expressed as a kind of. Personal floor you know because if if every spare moment you have. You want to be somewhere else. So inside a booker that's. That is a little problematic actually, it's not that different from the people who want to get high off. Be On instagram. Every moment of the day is all about not being way you were

"From NPR and Wbz Robin Young I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here and now, and while the NBA bubble remains intact so far major league baseball hit a snag in its restart. The League has cancelled game set for today in Miami and Philadelphia, because a number of players for the Miami marlins tested positive for covid nineteen, meanwhile, the top health official in Starr County Texas Jose Vasquez has formed a committee to drop guidelines for doctors to choose patients in the county's only hospital, who will not survive covid nineteen, and may go home to die with loved ones to free up resources, baronies, Garcia is with the Monitor newspaper mcallen Texas. She joins us from Alamo Veronese. How is that announcement of this committee resonating there? A lot of people are having reactions that you would expect. They're very armed by the news, but you know Dr Jose Vasquez. He's trying to express it. This is not completely out of the ordinary. You know that hospitals do have the communities that make these types of of decisions, and unfortunately he's saying that they're reaching a point there at star, Star County. where they're having to make these type of decision because of the lack of resources that they have their. and. We understand that this is a very rural area. This is the only hospital and some healthcare workers there who have also come down with covid nineteen are saying things like you know they. They really don't even have an ICU normally and they're having to do this kind of work. Yeah. That's right. You Dr. Baskets as soon as he would say that. As soon as you had a patient who needed to be intimated, who will required those intensive care unit services? They had to automatically be transferred because they just don't have that at that hospital. And he reported to us that he was searching as far as New York to try to get these patients, Abed, but it was. It was too much on. Thankfully, they've received some. Some services I believe from the Navy recently the Governor Greg Abbott, not certainly that they were sending two navy teams to grant city where the hospital is located. So there thankfully, receiving I believe it was chew. Intensive intensiveness and Several nurses who are helping with that, so they are able now to care for some of these patients, but again those we are limited, so they're having to make decision based on their probability of survival well, and you're right. This does happen. Elsewhere Arizona is starting to roll out care standards four when ICU beds ventilators are in short supply, and it's something that decision that doctors. have to make outside of covid nineteen. When do you stop treating someone? Of course, this is different in that. If there are no other hospitals to take them in the area, we see that patients from your county are getting helicoptered out to other areas. If there's no one to take them. They may be going home to die with Sirius cove in nineteen. Is there a fear about that? Yeah absolutely I mean already. There's just this Under reporting of deaths at home, and that's another problem that they're facing down there. So yeah, it complicates so many things and I'm just wondering, too. We understand. Star County was a success initially few cases at the start of the pandemic reach Texas. But then the state reopened are people that are thinking that. Maybe that had something to do with it. The Spike. You have now? Absolutely because you know back in April, they went I believe. It was nearly three weeks without a single case. And towards the end there they did have like one or two cases pop up within a single family, but those weren't. Community spread right. It was just like a single family. You know unfortunately infecting one another, and that's how that happened, but then after. Governor Abbot kind of opened the the state reopen the economy? That's when the case numbers there exploded. And that to win, we saw hospitals. All across the valley, being completely inundated with. Kobe Hospital Kobe cases, and that's just how it's been. Since the economy reopened and I mean you'll hear it from county officials during press conference. No, it's very clear to them that what the differences they will, they will say the only difference is that our economy reopened and we're no longer able to enforce shelter in place orders. Bernie's Garcia. Normally we'd be asking you about the flooding from the hurricane in that area, but just. It can't be helping the situation. No, absolutely not, and so the good thing that I did speak to I. Did ask about hospitals and how they're doing here. Thankfully, none of them are putting any flooding. So that's great, but they have said that few of the employees have called in saying that they were having trouble getting to work, but then those cases their. Hostels are sending out trucks to pick up those employees. So, that's that's okay for them, so your. Furnace Cassia reporter who covers Star County for the Monitor newspaper based in mcallen. Texas baronies just wish you well with everything going on there. Thank you so much. Thank you. Florida overtook New York in the number of coronavirus cases over the weekend, and is now second to California so some officials in the state of Florida are looking at more creative ways to reach out to the younger generation who've been making up a bigger share of new infections than they were before for member station W..
