"Pandemic has transformed lives and livelihoods. But it's changed the little details to like the language we use peppering our everyday speech with scientific terms like social distancing superspreader and asymptomatic ya. I mean we've all had to become Amateur epidemiologists i suppose and familiarize ourselves with these terms that normally you would expect us to be in in some in some journal article somewhere. Ben zimmer is a linguist and language columnist for the wall street journal. He says a lot of the words that came up fresh too. Many people in twenty twenty head existed in scholarly literature for decades. So for instance contact tracing is actually attested from nineteen ten There's there's an example from australian medical journal talking about School epidemics back in ten in. They're talking about contact. Tracing as something that the school nurse would need to do to figure out you know who had been infected and the term quarantine which derives from a renaissance era italian word. Meaning a forty day. Waiting period for ships arriving from plague-stricken ports dates back centuries. But it took on new life during the pandemic. everybody's talking about quarantining and then and then it starts generating all sorts of new forms as well. You know you can drink your quarantine e you can grow corn beard and on and on and on as people got creative by taking taking these words and Forming innovative new expressions. Out of them zimmer.

New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara Runs for Six Touchdowns Against Minnesota Vikings
"Same speed the Vikings 52 to 33 on Christmas Day. Courtney Crone and covers the Vikings for ESPN NFL Nation and she joins us Now. Courtney Mike Zimmer is a pretty tough defensive minded coach. What was his reaction to letting Alvin Kamara go off for a NFL record six rushing touchdowns on Friday? Yeah. I mean, he was disappointed. I like his line that you've got to work really hard to give up 52 points. Think sums up Just what he thinks about this defense. He actually called them the worst one he's ever had. And this comes, you know, just a couple months after you said he never had a beat of bad defense ever, and he never anticipated that changing so Hard core reality checks that he knew it before. This point, for sure, But I think just getting the breaks beaten off of you on a daily your playoff hopes officially die. Um, was just the cherry on top for him, or he had no trouble holding back on. What he feels about his defense and that it wasn't you can't blame injuries. You can't blame an experience if you can't tackle. Um so I mean, that was That was what he saw when Alvin Camaro ran for six touchdowns on Christmas Day, and I think it's what everybody else saw. That defense got dragged up and down the field, which has been their Achilles heel all year.

Trump and Biden debate their climate and environmental policies
"A lot at Thursday's debate. There was this telling exchange about climate change. Would you close the have a transition from their own industry? Yes. It is a big statement, President Trump again boosted the fossil fuel industries contributing to global warming. Joe Biden is campaigning on a plan for Net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. NPR's Jeff Brady has more on his $2 trillion proposal. Joe Biden's climate plan is ambitious for an economy is big and complex as the United States, but even those connected to fossil fuel industry say it may be doable. Scott Siegal with the energy focused law firm. Bracewell says the plan is pragmatic and includes both regulations and incentives for the growing list of companies focused on using cleaner energy in the future. One thing that makes Biden's approach somewhat comfortable is that you can sketch out that linear commitment to additional resource is to achieve these objectives, which I think most people in business, believe me. Are going to be the future anyway. The country has one example of meeting an ambitious climate goal. The Obama administration's clean power plan aimed to cut emissions from power plants, about a third by 2030. Even though court challenges stopped the plan from going into effect, the country is ahead of schedule. David Doniger is with NRDC Action Fund, The political arm of the natural resource is defense counsel. The power sector is already undergoing changes that have reduced their emissions by more than 30% 10 years ahead of the target that the Obama administration thought was aggressive. In 2015, a big part of that was the collapse of the coal industry. Coal fired power plants continue to go out of business, replaced with cheaper natural gas and renewable energy. Still, the bite and climate plan faces significant hurdles. It relies on technologies that haven't been developed or may not be commercially viable. That's why the plan includes $400 billion over a decade for research. With the economic hit from the Corona virus pandemic. Biden's campaign updated the plan this summer. It includes billions of dollars to hire people for things like plugging abandoned mines and building electric vehicle charging stations. Steph Feldman, with the bite and campaign says the plan also focuses on environmental justice. 40% of the benefit of those investments go to community, the color and low income communities that have been disproportionately harmed by pollution and the effects of climate change. This is especially important to the most vocal climate change activists. While Biden has distanced himself from the green new deal, it is popular, especially with the left wing of his party. Jenny Marino, Zimmer with 3 50 actions as this's thie strongest plan yet from a Democratic presidential nominee, the Biden campaign has committed to doing some really great things like ending leasing of fossil fuels on public lands. We'd like to see them go further and create a true phase out for the entire fossil fuel mystery over Of course of the next decade. Biden's plan has a longer timeline for a transition and includes a role for fossil fuels with offsets and carbon capture. Amy Myers Jaffe manages the climate policy Labatt Tufts University and says overall, this is a credible plan for addressing climate change. The Biden campaign has listed the right things. But the difference between listing things and implementing those things is a big difference. If Biden is elected, he'll likely need a Democratic Congress willing to pass laws and allocate money

The Seahawks escaped a deflating loss to the Vikings — and came out even more confident
"In terms of playing yourself. How about the Minnesota Vikings? They go to Seattle. They actually had the Seahawks on the ropes. In fact, not only did they have them on the ropes, they essentially have them beaten. Until Mike Zimmer made some really strange calls down the stretch, like kicking that extra point of four And then going for it on fourth down when a field goal would have made that in eight point game because it's takes the snap. He will hand it off to Madison. Straight ahead. I don't know he needed to get to the five based on the initial spot. He's short they're saying, See on football. Alexander Madison needed to get the nose of the football and couldn't get it. Bobby Wagner came shooting through and made first contact and the Seahawks defense comes up with a stop in with 1 57 ago. Seattle will take over I mean, like, I know what the analytics say. I know what the numbers say. I know. They say you go for it there. I just don't care. I mean, damn, That was a weird call, And that's not a matter of Monday morning quarterbacking either. My entire text. The red thumb, the exact same thing. The second that happened, namely the hell is this guy doing? And especially when you have Russell freaking Wilson on the other sideline because you knew what was going to happen next. And how did you know? Because you had Russell freaking Wilson on the other sideline, and Russ was going to lead the Seahawks on a game winning drive. There was going to rip your heart out, and that's exactly what happened. Captain off by this locket six. Here's the snap. Wilson back to throw rush coming throws for the unsold ISS. Touchdown. Seattle T came met cap with a diving catch this second touchdown catch of the night and with 15 seconds to go, the Seahawks are on top. He went backto Metcalf and he comes through. Man so much alike in that so much to like in that That's the Hawks radio. I mean, that's so, Russ minutes the epitome of Russ and neutral thinking as top on my guy Trevor, Mo. Add. Russ did not look like Russ for most of that game, but when it mattered most, he was right there. That's the most rust thing ever. Rust does not look like Russ. And then in the very end when they needed him to be Russ. He showed up like Russ, and it set off this wild celebration in the locker room with old man Peter Carroll. Completely losing his bleep. You It's really not true. Like you can win a game in the first quarter, right? You can win the game in the second quarter, right? You can win the game in the third quarter to Anyway, he was fired up. I won't take that away from him.

It's just crazy all the people that have constantly come back into my life like even career. Wise but again. Coming on a show when you play a very strong character, you automatically command respect because people assume that is who you are. And that you take no bullshit and. That has been the greatest gift because I don't have that like innately in me normally on my normal twenty four seven day so and then have to own it. It forces you to. Be In it and I loved that part so much because I got to be crazy strong and but then incredibly vulnerable and that was the one thing I didn't get to explore. Yet was how you can make these really strong confident women very vulnerable because they have to be, and that's actually making them very real. There is no one who is strong who is not also Senate yeah in real life. Yeah. Why asked? I asked the lovely. David. Fincher when I was on house of cards I said, why do I always get cast as a bitch and he said because you aren't one? And I, kind of looked at him and I think. That's it. It's just that simple and he's like, and also by the way you're not a bitch you're just woman who knows what like he just doesn't give a shit about anybody else doesn't make you a bitch and I was like, okay. But I'm just saying what people WANNA call, what labels they gave those characters which they don't give him any anymore finally. Yeah.

Because the first thing I did on screen that I got Taft Hartley I was cut out of so I, don't know. I don't know if it if accounts I mean credit you could still hear my voice, but you didn't see my face and yet that's what I. Was Taft Hartley for which I find.

We Will Taft Hartley them, which means they will bring you into the union four playing that part and then I was cut out.

You know we're going to give you that sure you know. But then there's directors that are like, Oh, I, don't want to give a line reading I'm like you don't have to give a line reading like it was funny that I became like you know kind of became the code. Yeah exactly. Love it. So Resume you're like communication strategist exactly God, which is weird because I talk and run on sentences and Not the not the. I forget my words all the time I think I mean like a weird. Pre menopausal hormone stage really not affecting me like you hear these stories of like hot flashes and all that kind of stuff. But no one ever talks about that. Apparently, your brain starts to get foggy. When you're pre-menopausal you start forgetting words. You like to the point where I was like a do I have early onset dementia 'cause I don't remember words and I was talking to my sister about it. WHO's a couple years older than me and she was like do you want to know the truth? Yes you're like, just tell me my brain's not broken. Yeah. She said it's a it's a very early indication of pre menopausal stuff like your hormones are affecting your brainwaves, which is and I was like how? Can we ever get a break as women a break. For Amana I mean my God. Wild? Okay. Wait. So we're we're in the trenches obviously of where we are. Storytellers. But how do we go from you doing grease as your senior year high school play and you were in La Right yeah. I was because I knew I grew up in Newport beach. Okay which is weird. I. Why weird because I'm so not an Orange County. person. I mean everybody thinks I'm from the East Coast. So born in Seattle, but was here as I was from five until I mean from five on in California okay and so but sixth grade to twelfth grade was Newport beach was Orange County and so then I went to the American Academy which was Pasadena and stayed here have always been here yes and and when you took your rejection as a sign of your. Readiness and prowess. Clearly, where did you go what happened? Then I went and I did the like find your agent by paying money for a commercial workshop I did that thing and then I got a commercial agent. and. Then I went and studied with Stella Adler. Yes and that was I studied with her until she then she died and then stayed I had my teacher, which was you know 'cause Stella at that time was doing masterclasses where you could go and just take like a six week course with her because she still lived in New York and so she would come back and forth. But. That was cool. Looking back on that. Is there something that stands out to you that you learned from her like like how did that experience shape you as a storyteller well I think it's weird because she broke people very easily. Very easily and to watch her break, people was the almost the big biggest lesson base. Again, watching as an outsider, right? Not being on the stage being broken by her, you can't see it. So I learned more watching her coach actors and they would come in the would do scenes in front of her and then she would break it down and I'll never forget her breaking this actress..

Know She's still fun to love to tell stories I know and I love crafting performances I mean that's the thing that I'm noticing that has been a little kind of disheartening about. Shadowing. Detractors that that aren't actors which obviously that's the majority of the directors. There's there's a smaller percentage of actors that turned to directing your but is that. We know all the things that we wish that directors would say to us to for us to give the performance that they want and knowing that already going in, you already have that leg up. All directors they say should go to an acting class. So they understand the plight of the actor, which is super complicated we're all complicated we're all.

It's very that stuff makes me laugh when I look back on it now but I think when you when you know something of yourself, even despite insecurity because we all are wracked with that, right? I think you just are unwilling to give up. Yeah. Well, I I was very early on don't ever have a plan B because you'll end up doing your plan B.

I'm just realizing I'm like, Oh, I carried that with me for the last two weeks tonight I was I I was obviously tweeting about politics shocker and somebody said something and so I was looking through these replies 'cause I like to sort of see. Am I being clear? Am I making my point is this resonating? Do are there people I want to have a conversation with about this or just kind of let it live and you know it's such a weird thing when you can be tagged conversation other people are having it's like I don't always want that. I don't WanNa. Know I don't want it. And this girl was talking about the podcast and I was like Oh. That's so nice and I like to reply to her and when I did that opened the whole threat of her conversation and and some other person was like, yeah used to be a fan of hers. But like I got into a debate with her on twitter years ago, she's a fucking hypocrite and like..

How I Built Resilience: John Zimmer of Lyft
"We I spoke with John back in two thousand seventeen but now fast forward a few years and like most of us John is dealing with challenges he never anticipated. But when we spoke a few days ago, he sounded pretty optimistic. Personally, I'm doing okay I. Think you know the business has had a tough time but has seen some really strong recovery since the bottom? We were down about seventy five percent at the peak. In terms of rideshare rides, we now return to little. Half. down. which is actually good progress. We've always been a very long term minded company. We've had hard times before we've always been the challenger brand, and so actually I think moments like this are opportunities for us in our team to shine and so happy to share some of that with you. Yeah I WANNA I wanNA talk about that. Let's let's first talk about like kind of drill down to some of the challenges i. There's no question that this has to be the most challenging time in your you know in your leadership of lift I think it's the most challenging time for any business leader founder around the world today for variety of reasons and as you mentioned, it's been a tough year four left to have some layoffs in May I think about thousand. Layoffs which could not have been easy for you to go through. So as you began to see the pandemic having a significant impact on on your business, what kinds of conversations were you having with your your leadership team with your co founder Logan about ways to kind of begin to to build resilience? What are the conversations that we've had or one of the challenges throughout is how many different audiences groups of people that were working to take care of throughout this right so we have our drivers, we have our riders, we have our employees. With an employee's, there's those that are working in person to help drivers at Parisian centers and there are those that could work from home. So all different populations that we want to take care of. Investors as well who who are judging those decisions we make. So I think that's been a really interesting conversation also the conversations around short term thinking versus long term thinking there are short term decisions we need to make in order to preserve the long term mission that we have as a company. In. Those have been really key decisions. You talked about the dot was very, very difficult. It forced us to make hard decisions some of which I think actually. In hindsight were very healthy for the business but very difficult to make especially for people that are all in this tough time where where the market is difficult those were not easy decisions. Let's talk about some of the short term decisions that you had to take. I mean you are publicly traded company So you're obviously countable to investors and it's everything's on the table you have to review can't hide anything first of all, just to keep the business operating and to. Get. You through this time because this is going to be a challenging year and maybe a recovery next year for you we'll talk about that a moment but you knew this was going to be a tough year. So was one of those decisions to retain as much cash on hand was that one of the initial decisions that you had to take? Yeah obviously. So we look at the cash that we have on hand. We also raised our first debt to add cushion. Quite, a strong position where lucky that we went public when we did. Have a you know near nearly three billion dollars in the bank. What we did to start as we ran all different scenarios we said Okay if we were seventy five percent down for six months or two quarters, you know what would the situation be like for cash if we were down, you know for four quarters what would it be like for cash? We ran the the worst case scenarios, the medium case scenarios and the best case scenarios, and then made the decision that you know raising the debt was kind of a no regrets move but then also to your point preserving the cash that we do have on hand. Making decisions about expenses that we had in the office that were more of a luxury making decisions around certain teams. That we needed to tighten up for example, on on the operating side there were some markets where we had to close some of our centers. What are you finding out from users like why what is what is it? That is preventing them from using lift? Is it basically that they just don't have anywhere to go or is it? Is it the fear of being car with somebody else? It's a mix of both you know. I I think it's people changing their transportation behavior, their actual transportation behavior, and then secondarily It's obviously the questions around health safety and I'd love to walk through what we're doing on on that end as open. The APP we ask both driver and rider to confirm that they're wearing a mask. We ask driving rider confirmed that they haven't been in contact with anyone has covert, and we ask everyone to keep their areas clean and open. Windows if possible. So that's gone a long way. If you zoom out actually the fact that half as many rides are being taken now as before I'm actually quite happy within a strange way because I know many people that are they're not going into the office that's a huge change in transportation. So the fact that one out of two rides are still present even in this environment show some flexibility in the model because we've seen different. Types of rides we've seen a lot of essential workers using this way more because there are other options. Potentially public transportation are things that they're more concerned about from a health safety perspective,
How I Built Resilience: Sandra Oh Lin of KiwiCo
"On these episodes, we talk with entrepreneurs and other business leaders about how they're coping during this very challenging time and today we're gonNA hear from Sandra. Olen, the founder and CEO of Kiko Kiko makes arts and science projects for kids and ships them out in monthly subscription boxes or crates in March when students began learning from home Sandra's company a spike in orders, and it's now shipped over twenty million boxes around the world I spoke with. Sandra from her home. In the bay area is trying to keep up with demand. Tell us a little bit more about Kiwi Co for people who don't know what what you do tell us about your your company. Yeah. So we design and deliver hands on experiences for kids, kids of all ages. So we have different experiences and products that we develop for Newborns and infants alway through to kids at heart. So teens and even grown ups and these hands on experiences they range. So science experiments, games, kids making play projects that encourage imaginative play. And they're all center around this idea of how can we encourage kids to see themselves as makers And I. Think the the best known as the Kiwi crate and inside like you get pipe cleaners and different OV- like Styrofoam balls and I think that's probably the best known product that you guys make. Right the Kiwi crate. Yeah. Yeah. I mean that's our flagship line. So qe crate is geared for early elementary age kids. So five to eight and it's very project base for Kiwi crate. There are at least two different projects and it's usually one that's a science and engineering focused project and one. That's more be more of an art in creativity designed focus project. So let's say one project overall. It's about arcades and one project might be you create a mechanical arcade cloth that you can actually grab things with and the other side of the crate might be a project where you're making your own yarn pom Pom Creatures, and then you're actually taking your claw, you're trying to grab those creatures as well as whatever else is around your house too. So it's a combination of discoveries along with hopefully A. Little Bit of delight and a whole bunch of fun which I love and tell me I i. know that you launched this in twenty eleven and at the time I guess you were like you were in charge of the fashion portfolio. For Ebay. How did the idea come to you? So it was born mainly out of personal needs. So my my career has spanned consumer products and technology mostly ECOMMERCE. So it started my career in India proctor and gamble and then had been at pay pal at. Ebay but when we started the company, so two thousand eleven, my kids, my oldest two kids were almost three and almost five and I really want to give them especially the hands on activities. It was a way for them to really see themselves as producers and not just a passive consumers as kids who could actually kind of problem solve and make something, and so I started to pull together different and inspiration and I was like, Oh, my gosh, is taking a long time like I need to. Amortize. My effort and so I would invite friends and their kids, and one of the MOMS actually said, you should start a business around this and it was one of those things where I think long story short is that we found that there are a lot of parents who are well intentioned very busy. They want enriching activities for their kids and if it can come. To them in a convenient format from a trusted brand, and that's something that actually really resonates and then if you think about it from a business perspective, if you can get a subscription service to work, it works really well right and so if you consider all the elements of subscription service or you're considering lifetime value if you're able to drive down their cost of Acquisition then you're able to provide something that is not only valuable to the customer, but ends up being something that works really well all the business side to I I imagine when the Middlesex business for a moment I mean I imagine that when it became clear that the pandemic was GonNa shut down huge parts of the economy like most business owners you probably. Anticipated a downturn for Your Business and first of all, how did you prepare for that possibility? Well, to be completely frank, it was a little bit of madness say kind of the beginning. So we were a little bit ahead of the curve and having folks work remotely. But then as people started to shelter in place was definitely a scramble you know we had to see. What the impact would be to the business, and so we've definitely became more conservative. So very quickly we decided to basically pull back or remain conservative on marketing spend. We were looking at things like hiring and figuring out what we wanted to do that. So we held on hiring but then we're also tracking the business and what we actually started to see pretty. Quickly is a pretty decent uptick in the business. I think the combination of parents being home needing something to engage kids we happen to be a good solution, and so we started to see an uptick in the business and then accordingly had managed to the business based on that demand at a pretty dramatic to I think, right? Yeah. So I think you had mentioned. I kind of in the beginning that we shipped out over twenty million crates now, and so if you look at the first ten million crates, we hit that Mark Actually in January twenty nineteen, and then in the next eighteen months or so we actually shipped out another ten million crates and you can imagine kind of the celebration of the business and some of that. Is Because of acceleration that we saw on the business given the pandemic and the demand that was their I'm not surprised spoke with the CEO of dream box who told us that they have seen a doubling of on boarding on onto their platform it's a math platform for elementary school kids. I spoke to Sal Khan a few days ago of founder, the Khan Academy. I mean, they're seeing record numbers of students on their platform I mean as you have seen this kind of surge in demand, how have you been able to meet that demand? I mean, for example, have you had any challenges sourcing supplies? Yeah. So we've definitely had different challenges associated with with meeting the demand I. Think the great thing is that our team has been incredibly responsive and making sure that we shoring supply chain putting in the appropriate orders to make sure that we had the inventory available and I think when it's kind of regular times. To a certain extent, it's almost like your utilities or you know you expect the water to be there in the electricity work and similarly expect that you're going to have product to ship, and so we had to be very proactive about making sure that some of these things that we may have taken for granted and pass were there available to us that we could actually serve the community fulfillment was definitely another area that we had to really shore. Up and make sure that we have the capacity and then customer care I. Mean Obviously we WanNa do an excellent job of serving the customer and making sure that their questions are answered etc and so there was a certain amount of capacity that we were planning for in March April Etcetera May June, and so we had actually scaled add up pretty significantly. Let's go to some questions we're getting in from folks watching system cows, Zimmer he asks via twitter. How do you develop your kids and how do you test them with kids? Yeah. So we have interestingly to product design and development teams. So we have a physical product design and development team, and then we have a digital. So the digital is creating ecommerce platform or content platform. So the software and then our physical product design team is really comprised of folks with mechanical engineering backgrounds, industrial design. We have someone who actually worked on space satellite system. This is, and so these are the folks who are accepting the different projects that could to the kids prototyping testing, etc, and a big part of what we've done at Kiko even since you started it in my garage actually is that we are always testing but children. So in every office that we've had, we have a sizable room and four to eight times a week kids are coming in to test the products at various stages and that is. Something that is absolutely critical for us. We may assume that a project may be engaging. It may not. We may assume that a material is something that is malleable enough for preschoolers hands, but it may not be, and so it's just a critical step in. So as we've actually been working remotely, that was a big challenge to figure out, and so it's been pretty amazing. We quickly decided to actually purchase three D. Printers, laser cutters, etc that we. Then distributed to different product designers, and then on the testing side, we ended up actually either shipping or having a hand off locations for kids to pick up and test materials, and then do them via video conference and so we actually ask for different camera angles to see what the kids are doing because depending on the age of the kid it's not so much that they're going to tell you what's going on you actually have to observe. What's going on in? So that's definitely been an area where we've had to figure out how to get things

Who is Alex Cintrón, the Astros hitting coach who instigated brawl with the A's?
"Brawl in baseball yesterday. Ramona Reynaud went right after Alex Cintron, who is the head coach for the Houston Astros, And this whole thing was bizarre to Maine. We know that there is a beef between the athletics and the Astros. Mike Fires used to pitch for the Astros was on the on the athletic still is on Lorraine. Oh, gets hit twice in the Siri's that the 2nd 1 I didn't see the first of the 2nd 1 was not intentional. But he was walking to first base is so John boy pretty much tryingto figure out what was going on. And I guess Laredo was trying to tell the picture had to throw the ball. Cintron asked, get suspended from saying his name correctly, If now I apologize, but the bench the hitting coach has to get suspended, has to get a lengthy suspension. Because he is basically egging on Lorraine. Oh, who's at first base? And it was gutless. What the hitting coach did he goes? Oh, yeah. You come over here You come over here. The guys 41 years old, if this is not A 60 70 80 year old heading coach. This is not who is the Mets pitching coach? That's your Phil Regan. This's not him or or the late. Great Don Zimmer with Pedro Martinez, where you see potentially an older person get thrown to the ground. That was not this. This a 41 year old yellow Nazareno basically, Tom come over and fight him, and he did the ultimate Gutless move off. I'm going to tell you to come fight me. But the minute when you take a step forward three for my players are going to step in front of me. And then I'm going to become Mr Hold me back, bro. Type of guy. That's the worst person in a fight. Someone that instigates the fight and then doesn't throw the punch and doesn't actually fight when someone comes charging at you because of you just being ridiculous in the dugout. That guy doesn't get popped if Joe Kelly gets it with what it was an eight game suspension. If this is it, the heading coach here for the Astros doesn't get At least eight games, then that's ridiculous. Albay have no clue how to figure this out. They'll mess it up. Did you agree with that? Then we have a heading coach, basically telling Laredo to come over and fight him. Or Laureano. Excuse me. To come over and fight him. And then he lets what 34 of his players take care of it that was weak. Yeah, it's weak and it's like extra dumb when the league is begging you not to have a bench clearing altercations, and then you instigate won as a coach, not even a player for seemingly I don't even understand the reason. And it even begins. So, yeah, you would think he's going to be in big, big trouble, too. We
"Welcome to film spotting, we will get to our Nolan Review Awards. Later in the show, we might have an for those awards picked out by. Then we might not. We will share our awards for favourite supporting performance and lead performance from this retrospective of the work of Christopher Nolan will also share our picks for best Nolan moment in the overall best moment or seen after we have revisited all ten of Nolan's films and that will culminate with our Christopher Nolan rankings. The definitive Christopher ranking for each of us one to ten will there be some shifting Adam Gimme a tease. Shifts definitely from the last time, I posted a Nolan ranking on letterbox. There's been some movement Yep me too one I think you'll like I don't know if you'll like it enough, but you will like it I though the World War Two movie from Christopher Nolan that we didn't know we needed dunkirk. The enemy tanks stop. Why? Why waste precious tanks when they can pick from the. Barrel. Their full hundred thousand men only speech. Your position. Josh, coming into this rewatch was that done kirk is Christopher, Nolan's best film and there's at least one longtime listener and regular commentator who agrees with you that we are culminating this overview triumphantly with the filmmakers greatest achievement Adam Grossman in Vancouver says like many of us. I've completed my Christopher Nolan Review. Biggest takeaway hoover is a really hard were dispel. Well, second takeaway. I've decided dunkirk is Nolan's career highpoint while my heart loves interstellar the most good on you Adam and I. Hugely Admire. and. The Dark Knight for what they meant to Action Cinema and Superhero movies respectively dunkirk is his masterpiece got laid down for you tenant. I just don't know how anyone could argue that the legend of dunkirk could be told any better the setup and the first eight minutes alone from the falling paper from the sky to the distress. Cry of where's the bloody air force is a wonder of a short film. In itself, the lack of dialogue works perfectly for what this movie wants to achieve with. Hans. Zimmer's relentless scored doing all the audio work that's necessary among all the chaos. There are frequent moments of grace. Kenneth. Branagh face as Commander Bolton as the cavalry arrives in the form of the civilian vessels the empathy as Peter Tells Killian Murphy's PTSD soldier. The young George will be okay and no moment more than the shot. Be Okay and no more than a shot of Tom Hardy's planes silently gliding over the beaches of dunkirk knowing his job has been done. dunkirk is also uniquely Christopher Nolan Movie One where his signature use of time has never melded together better and more cohesively than it does in the final twenty minutes of this film while Dunkirk will understandably never be a wholly enjoyable or easy rewatch. It's one that gets richer and richer with repeat viewing. Now, Adam Mention Nolan signature use of time, and that is one aspect of dunkirk among others that certainly connects to his entire body of work. But there are other aspects that Mark Dunkirk is unique. It is only film that is based on historical events, which means it is inherently rooted in the past and yet I'd argue it is only film that truly feels present tense meeting there are no. Dead parents or wives or forsaken children or other tragic events haunting the air's barrier played by Tom. Hardy the Moles Army private Tommy fiene whitehead or for the most part the sees Mr Dawson played by Mark Rylance like all Nolan protagonist there's plenty of personal sacrifices on display but no guilt no sense of futility about toning past actions just the seemingly futile need to survive the current event that they. Are Tragically experiencing here's something else that argues unique about dunkirk as we every other commentator on Dolan's work is discussed in some form or fashion for all those dead parents and wives and foresaken children. There's nothing so emotional or borderline sentimental in any of his previous films as the climax of inception and yes, mileage may vary there which led to interstellar and not only mcconaghy's crushing breakdown watching twenty three. Years Worth of miss video messages from his family but the verbalize message love is the one thing we're capable of proceeding that transcends dimensions of time and space. Maybe we should trust that even if we can't understand it, it's hard to imagine any character in previous Christopher Nolan movies saying something like that which led to Dunkirk am I crazy josh this is his most blatantly sentimental and even heart film. And if so is that what establishes Dunkirk as his best its balance of coldness the sober portrayal of the hell of war of life in the misguided choices, some men will make when facing death with warmth. In the compassionate inspiring choices some men will make to maintain a way of life. So a lot of subtleties in that question and you're onto something so you're not crazy I think I would distinguish. The word blatantly, I. Don't think this is blatantly emotional or moving, but I do think you're onto something in the fact that it is maybe his most heartwarming in where it ends up and let me kind of try to parse those. You're right as long as the Nolan Canon has convulsing McConnell. Interstellar is going to be his most blatantly emotional I mean you can't have a scene like that without registering that on it surface. That's his most emotional movie. But I will also say that I find Dunkirk to be his most emotionally affecting movie maybe even more. So than inception, which we about how I did find that very moving especially in the character of Mal. So yet dunkirk is really a unique thing even as it's working within the strands and trends that we have been tracing in Nolan's other films, I. Think the heartwarming aspect is probably a part of that. You've nailed it there in that it brings us to a place that. Is One of Constellation and I think it's earned because I think up until that point we have just been suffering alongside all of these other characters in so many ways and we've also been recognizing as the movie does that this is You know a an account of a military failure, a huge defeat and so for the movie to kind of offer, some sort of solace at the end of that I think is. In proportion and well
Margot Livesey: The Boy in the Field
"Today, I'm happy to report that my guest is Margot Lipsey her newest book is the boy in the field it's published by Harper. And it's said correctly that it's a cross between a mystery thriller and the coming of age novel but you mentioned the particular kind of thrower of locked room mystery. Tell us what locked room mystery as. Well I'm someone who doesn't reach many thrillers but my understanding of through mystery is that There is no possible solution at yet solution exists and certainly in my novels I think of people's brains locked rooms locked rooms were trying to get into or trying to get alcohol job. Yes snow when I've read that in the book I thought, yes, the brain is the ultimate locked room. But what about the heart? The Heart? Yes. Perhaps even more the heart because the heart has its reasons that reasons does not comprehend. So yeah, they're all know syllogisms for the heart. It's a beautiful book because what happens essentially Is. The three children. Find the Boy Wyoming. For. Own intensive purposes asleep or dead in a field. They're afraid because they see that his legs are bloody. and. The youngest of them Dunkin, a boy who's been adopted is sent out to the road to flag down someone to Cohen Ambulance. As it. Turns out. The boring is not dead although his consciousness is on the wane. And he says at least according to these three children one of three things coward or Cowry or CAL slip. And the way this book works is that each of the three children has an interpretation not just of what the boy says but of how the boy got there of what life in the family is like. The father is perhaps having an affair. The youngest adopted child is looking for his lost I mother who was Turkish. Essentially. You say. That the book. Is like a compass and ultimately, there are thirty two points on the compass and the character can be proceeding toward any of those thirty two points now isn't a novel and this isn't a long novel. This is approximately two hundred and fifty. Some pages isn't it hard to make an potter novel that takes you in so many directions. It was hard to plot the novel absolutely and. Kept to mine something cats were meant field roach one of her lectures about how Every. Member of the family is is struggling to get free is struggling to step into their own life as it were I'm same time still wants to be part of this peculiar organism, the family. Three children you know cup so must like cubism. That's very different points of view about what was happening around the volume, the field. And in their own lives and in their family. Experiencing the family differently. Well, it's kind of amazing because each. Option. HAS A counter option? So the daughter Zoe is in love with a man that man is in love with a woman who was living in Paris, that woman living in Paris is married and feels that her husband comes first. So the constant shifting of point of view and possibility is dazzling you can't as a reader. Put Down what is going to be presented to you next. King for that very complimentary remark. Well, I do think it's one of my I'm Mike core beliefs if you will that. Everybody has a secret has a secret sorrow if you will and. AM. Real takes quite a long time before that emerges even even in the closest friend and of course. We're also refined new Soros. We find new secrets and we surrender other Zimmer's ongoing flux of life.

Zimmer head coach of the Minnesota Vikings into the Love Covenant at Kfi Am Mike Up Congratulations on the new deal of you. made any big buys with with the new deal so far like shotguns or anything. Now I really haven't. I did buy a little pontoon boats lake in Kentucky, but that was before. That's about it. That's A. Tiny one. You know we got lakes air. Yeah I know you can you can. You can get a pontoon like chill out here. I mean with you got twenty twenty plus three so clearly plenty of time for pond tuning on the lakes of Minnesota right coach. Yeah I'd like to get out on the legs Minnesota a little bit, but You know it's kind of hard during the season. Let me, let me ask you this weird question. Even if it's an agent, negotiating a deal isn't working on something like a new deal. If isn't it like weird and mind consuming when when when you're not right in the thick of the negotiations, but it involves you. Yeah, it is it is a little bit strange you know my agent Marvin Demo Fish, just terrific, and he did a great job with this, and and as as a as that everybody here with the Vikings, but You know I would hear from him. You know maybe once a week. He call and then say what talked to him three times this week and you know things like that so Yeah, you know it's just it's just the process of waiting. I guess is makes makes it a little bit more difficult. Like the weird part I mean it's because you're not talking directly to those who are set to pay you, and and clearly you're unbelievably well respected NFC title game on the Division. A couple of times one of the great defensive mines in the history of the game, and and and you know you don't talk about yourself like that, but people talk about you like. Like that so I- negotiating, it's just weird man. I mean like. If you started a dollar, you know somebody else start at fifty cents then you're trying to get up there around eighty five or ninety, and then like say they come back and like a sixty two and you're like hello. Didn't you watch the Saints Playoff game with ninety seven, ninety nine inside, that was me. You gotta think about things like that, you know. Yeah well, you know You know the way they do it the way they do in the NFL basically as they compare you to someone, and then you, you counteract okay well, you know I don't think I'm that person on this person you know comparative to other coaches and things like that, and but it you know. Once. You get past that part you start. You start talking years in in dollars. Then you know really. The Vikings were really really good. They were very You know a very respectful with everything and and. You know they actually. Added some things I probably wouldn't even have wanted. Did did any coach? Related comparisons like compare you to rich Kotite. BELIEVE SO! I don't sleep. that'd be old school, though how Mike how How are things not c? I haven't been there in four months now. You've been there and you know for a week two weeks change whatever, but just overall. How are things at twin cities orthopedics performance center. It is different you know there's there's arrows on the floors everywhere where you supposed to walk and you know everybody's wearing a mask and today we started with these. contact tracers that if you get too close to someone else, they blink. Can tell you you gotta be further apart and things like that like Bob was just too close to me a minute ago. I had to tell him. I had to tell him back up. Bob sweet. But You know in the in the players. Are you know and then you gotta go out and get tested every day? You know I've been tested I. Don't know five times already or something like that and so You know so. There's a lot of different things and then. You know I've been working on scanning since since they'd officially said the the you know we're going to. Report on on time we then found out the rules of the schedules and in practices and all that stuff. I've been working on those for really nonstop for three three straight days. Finally got that kind of organized now and You know so and I'm sure they'll be changes. You know the protocols going to change us as we continue. Get going, but It's a very sterile environment environment air I. Guess is the best way to say it you Mark Ziggy Leonard the will family. Legitimately seriously you and the whales have a really good thing I mean say you know say you wanted the dollar and whatever they started at whatever put put everything into context over six plus years. You and the will family. You guys have a really good thing Mike. We Really. Do you know they're? They're terrific. People Number One They just want to win as bad as everybody else but they've been. You know they've been terrific. You know like when my dad died you know or be right. Before he died, they flew me down to to see him during training camp. you know on on their jets the couple days, and I miss camp there that that time to see him, but you know they're. They're very family oriented. important to them, and and you know they're. They're good people to be around and they. You know I love love. Just having the opportunity work here I told the you know like I, said the other day I DIDN'T WANNA. Go anywhere else you know. If you came to that, I would have, but I didn't WanNA. Go anywhere else. I just wanted to be here in coach coach. These players be with the people everybody except Bob People here in this building the ownership that we have You know it's we feel like we've. We've come together built this thing up for for six six years now and hopefully it'll be you know at least ten but You know it's it's. It's something that you want to continue to. Feel comfortable with the players and ownership, and and the facilities and the fans. The fans have been unbelievable. You Know I. Hope that we get to get him in our stadium. When we play when we play games, 'cause you know I want to school chant going all the time and other out on the field so It's been it's been A. Terrific six years so far I'll play. It'll be even better than the let these last four off that off games and the potential of no fans. How hard have you guys worked on protecting signals and calls in Families Stadium's. Really got to that point yet, but but you know Paul Offense is do a defense, do you? Different codewords every single week, In the way that you that you make your calls. You have different signals every week so you know typically you don't get a lot of a lot of things. stolen that way. I will say this it would. Have to do it. We'll do it, but it would suck nothing to have. Our fans are in in our stadium that you know that's one of the most exciting things about playing here in. The US.
UTA Cuts Salaries Across Company to Avoid Layoffs

They cancelled basketball games like that seems really a big thing. The season was canceled shortly thereafter and then boom. It was it was hard to comprehend in the beginning. Yeah UTA like other talent agencies has been affected by this You have had to have furloughs and pay cuts. You're not taking a salary. Talk me through a little bit about how this has affected UTA. Well so far it's affected us because Y- you know I bowl everybody in the company participated in a salary reduction of some form or another, that was a really difficult thing to ask everybody to join in the sacrifice, but you know what we realized is the overall financial health of the company. Sustaining the company for the duration is going to be more of more positive and ultimately important thing for people than trying. Trying to maintain everybody's salary at that current level in the short term, so that was a difficult sacrifice. We chose to make some furloughs. We took advantage of the fact that governments were supporting people who have been furloughed so so far we've been trying to keep going.

The Genesis of The Miniseries Podcast "Blockbuster"
"We wanted to share with you guys. A bit of our journey of how we went about starting this production company that specializes in storytelling and all those stages that we went through so if you a follow us and please do subscribe to blockbuster on all of your podcast listening apps. But you'll see that. The of the series is epic cliff media. I think now it says epic originals and as some of our listeners may know that's My company that i started in two thousand fifteen when i left my job as a investigative journalist i was with cbs. At the time I put my own savings and credit cards and a lot more into camera and audio equipment to start filming a documentary and that was a film About the world's most well known film. Composers like khan zimmer. John williams of course Danny elfin like fifty others that we ended up interviewing and that film was called score a film music documentary. It's where i met peter Where i met. Elena and peter and i worked together on that film. He did the sound for it. He won awards for the sound for it. And its success led to a spin off interview. Show that we've been doing for the last three years called score the pod counties that interviews a lot of these composers working on modern things and it's a cool kind of you know peek behind the curtain and then all let us to this idea for blockbuster which is a scripted narrative miniseries that put kind of my journalism background and And peter's extraordinary sound design together into the same kind of product that we could It hadn't been done before this idea of that. That word again bio pod. So that's kind of the short of it. The challenges like with any creative project are how to build something. Sustainable that can keep you employed and and keep the creativity flowing so specifically what we're pushing into. Is this idea of high end. Kind of immersive audio. That's done almost at a level that you would see on a feature film the storytelling skills.

"And then there's the whole emotional aspect of it and this is things like motivation And and all that stuff and so I I always say like let's get. Let's get the first part of that. Solved get the the blocking and tackling done then once we have all that very well arranged. Then we're able to. If there are still blocks were able to identify those a whole lot more easily but most people never get to that point. you know very vague and and I'm sure you talk about this often. Very vague intentions aren't very good right. It's one thing to be like man. I really should exercise more this week. Like that's a very vague intention on the other hand on Monday Wednesday and Friday morning at seven. Thirty a M. I am going to step outside and Dan run around the block two times. That's specific right. And then if I have a prompt at seven thirty in the morning to tell me it's time to do it then if I don't do it okay now we go all right. Well it looks like a kind of set everything up to give me every chance of doing it. If I'm not doing it. Okay now maybe I do need to look at motivation. Ovation or competing priorities or or other things but but it's important to get that first step done before we get into trying to troubleshoot other things things but most people go exactly the opposite. They don't do that basic stuff. And then when they don't do the habit they go. I'm just not motivated or I'm lazy or I'm right and so it makes a lot of sense to start with environment and then work our way back to an end with what's going on with US motivational emotionally etcetera era instead of starting from the assumption that that's where the problem is now say we've got a good habit already in place and you know by all intentions ends. It means it's almost you know muscle memory. We don't have that we don't over think it we just do it. We've gotten to that point But we all know we've had good things in our life good habits in our life To that point but had overtime an erosion Where we aren't as consistent and then we're not consistent at all and then and yeah we kinda give it up How can we protect against that? Well I think that one of the important things is to realize that there is not any degree of perfection right so inevitably my experiences that whatever were trying to do. We're not going going to do perfectly but a lot of us have some sort of all or nothing thinking right so we're going along and we're doing well we're running on you know we're running. You know five days a week and that feels really good and then next week comes and we have to travel for work and we miss a couple days or our kid get sick and we missed three days right and then what happens to a lot of this is that we start to have a lot of negative talk around that like odd. Jesus didn't didn't run this week at all. See I knew I really can't stick with anything or and it slowly. We slowly sort of were were shocked by the fact that we slipped instead of going. Oh yeah that's perfectly normal. How do I get back on this just as soon as I can right so I think expecting that we're not going to do? Perfect is really important so for example I talk about like meditating daily and eating right and exercising regularly my goal is about ninety percent Senate hearings so if my goal is to exercise six days a week. Might you know what I'm really after is if I'm doing that about ninety percent of the time but if I'm doing that ninety percent of the the time day after day week after week month after month year after year that's real where real transformation occurs but if I'm expecting perfection then when I fail I'm very disappointed and disappointment. Leads us to start to move away from things and so it's Kinda normal that there's GonNa Awesome Waxing and waning. It's important to kind of keep an eye on it and go okay. Well boy the last few days I haven't done very good so it's really important. I try and get back to it today. So I think I think that's one major piece of it So it seems like there's potentially a gap to bridge there between consistency Z.. And aiming for for example you're saying You know with physical activity. Let's just say you're aiming for ninety percent and so if we were going to say they're seven days in the week and ninety percent. Let's just say that that's six days or five and a half if I. I don't know how you half workout on one day. But whatever Solicitous a sixty six days. Let's round up and so if out of those seven days if you're going in with the intention that you're going to hit ninety percent you may it less than that potentially like a you know because for example. If if Sunday through Saturday each day say on Sunday you're like Okay well and I and I. I'm kind of answering my own question as I say this out loud. So bear with me. I figure things out as I talk. That's why we're podcasters I if if say Sunday I'm like Oh well ninety percent means I can skip today then Monday. I better do it or I've now already gone down to to seventy five percent or whatever you know again not working out the math you're literally yet but Trying to get at here is are you aiming for for one hundred percent and accepting ninety or are you aiming for ninety and then it starts to fall apart. No I'm aiming for one hundred if I'm saying and I'M GONNA exercise six days a week. My goal is to exercise six days a week. And that's what I aim for right but I don't look at it a week at a time necessarily right because again. I'm looking at long long. Term sustained changed of my goals to work out six days a week. Right and There's fifty two weeks in a year right. That's three hundred twelve days a year right and and so if I wanna hit you know Ninety percent of those. That's two hundred and eighty which means there's something about thirty days a year you know once a month or so Or a couple times a month that I miss but I'm shooting for every day but I'm accepting that things happen right so it's not so much like Well I can still be at ninety if I don't work out today. It's the life inevitably gets in the way right with all the best intentions. Like you know a lot of your listeners. Probably have children. If you have children something is going to happen. That is going to disrupt your best laid plans if you have parents. I have elderly alert. Parents write something is going to happen. That is going to disrupt my best laid plans and I'm planning to work out today and you know what mom has to go to the doctor. Okay well I did the best I could but what happens is if we are looking at perfection then when I have to take mom to the doctor two days in a row and I fall off my habit I start. Some there starts to be some subtle Negatively that starts to creep in and I think I'm failing I'm screwing up. I'm I'm not doing well. I was whereas if I go you know what there's GonNa be some of that I don't take it so badly right and and one of the things with building a a good habit right as you want to really celebrate when you do well you we change There's a researcher out of Stanford. BJ Fog who who writes a lot. What about how to change behavior? And and he is a phrase that I like he says we change best buy feeling good not by feeling bad right and so we feel. We're more likely lead to do something when we feel like we are being successful at it right and so If we start to feel like we're failing because we missed a couple days this week because of because of having to take Mama the doctor that often leads into a self fulfilling prophecy where we go see. I couldn't stick with it. I knew I wouldn't be able to stick with it. I was doing good now. I'm screwing up and that negativity drops our motivation right. And so. That's kind of more the way I'm speaking of it. Well in these things all feedback round on themselves selves as you feed the goodwill back when we were originally talking about meditation where that then helps with sleep helps with physical activity helps with with Diet and again all making some progress in any one of those areas then start to spill over into the other areas which then reinforces the other areas again and vice versa and so on and so forth and so again making some progress and then having the right mindset for when you know that for when that's out that that negative self talk comes up then you you've got almost it's almost like building a force field in a way. Yeah you now for sure for sure man. We could go on for a lot longer. I think what's best is.
