The danger of herd immunity in solving the COVID-19 problem
"Herd immunity, and it's a concept some leaders and scientists have considered when it comes to responding to this pandemic. NPR's Jeff Broomfield reports on what exactly this idea is and why it presents troubles. The thinking goes like this. Sooner or later, the pandemic cast stand and Debbie shredder gets it like everyone wants a way out psychologically right, because no one's ever coped with something of this scale, and it's not like a crisis like a hurricane or 9 11 where it's like, time bound or geographically bound. This is like everyone everywhere for indefinitely right now appeals to people, right? Treaters of researcher at the University of Edinburgh Medical School in the UK, and it turns out there is a theoretical way it could end. If enough people get sick and recover and they become immune to the corona virus. Then the pandemic fizzles. Those who haven't gotten it yet are safe. The technical name for this is herd immunity in its purest form. It's like Darwinian self selection, right? We let the virus go. Whoever is going to die, I will die. That's life and then whoever makes it we'll have hopefully some form of immunity. Several governments tried with the idea of the beginning of the pandemic, including the U. K, But in the end, most decided it would cost too many lives. There was one exception Sweden. They kept businesses open and let people make their own choices. At one point, Swedish officials said Stockholm would returned immunity by the end of May, but they have not reached it by the end of May. They just lost a lot of lives and also took an economic it shredder says. Herd immunity works as a math problem, but at an individual level Swedes stayed home. People don't want to catch Cove it nobody wants to be part of the herd to stay that way. But could nations eventually reach herd immunity more slowly? Probably not, says Jeffrey Shaymen of Columbia University. So example, I like to think about it. South Korea. They're getting 50 cases a day right now. They will hold on for another 1000 days, which is almost three years that have 50,000 cases, which is 30.1% of their population. Most experts think herd immunity take somewhere between 50 to 80% of the population, even in the U. S. Even it's 60,000 cases a day. It'll take at least into 2021 possibly years more to reach those levels. And there's another looming problem. People may be able to get the Corona virus more than once, shame and has studied other Corona viruses that cause common colds, and he found people could be re infected. Some of them were 48 weeks separated from the previous infection, which is rapid and that might have been a relapse. But others we clearly know are different. They were 8 to 11 months apart. Greta Bauer is an epidemiologist at Western University in Ontario, she says this fall and winter maybe the time we find out about re infections, and if Covitz survivors get even mildly sick, the second time around Corona virus will keep circulating. If that were the situation, then there's no potential to develop a level of herd immunity sufficient to stop the infection. I corresponded with 16 different scientists, and almost all believed that achieving herd immunity as a practical matter was virtually impossible. Without a vaccine with the vaccine. It will be a lot easier to control the virus, but it will likely still exist in pockets around the world. So what's going to happen again? Researcher devilish reader I think it's going to be with us play forever. At this point, I think I mean at a global scale, it's going to be with us, and it's how we decide to live with it. There are ways to live with it. Test the sick, isolate them until they're better and everybody where a mask and keep their distance.
Trump says he’s ‘flexible’ on Jacksonville’s RNC convention, amid rising COVID-19 cases
"President Trump says his plan for big Open events during next month's Republican National Convention will be flexible, if need be due to a spike in the number of Corona virus cases in Florida. There's NPR's don Gani, eh? The president wants a big in person event for his RNC acceptance speech. That's what led the GOP to move the convention to Jacksonville from the original location. Charlotte after North Carolina's governor would not guarantee the use of the city's major sports arena. Then last night in an interview with Greta Van Susteren on Great television, the president for the first time softened his position on the topic. Here is his response when she asked about the convention and rising Corona virus numbers in Florida. It really depends on the timing. Look, we're very flexible. We could do a lot of things, but we're very flexible. The RNC is scheduled for the final week of
Social-media savvy youth climate movement undeterred by COVID-19
"Years ago on a cold December Day in New York City then thirteen year old Alexander vs in your skip school, but not because she wanted to sleep in or Binge Watch TV. I ended up going and sitting at this bench in front of the United. Nations headquarters here. Inspired by the young Swedish activist, Greta Tune Berg via Senor went on strike from school to demand action on the climate crisis that first day she was alone. But since then, the youth climate movement has grown, and she's been organizing protests with other young leaders in New York City, and around the world. I think that that's one of the things that makes this current movement so strong most of our actions that we have our global actions are all coordinated through social media. It's how we connect is how we meet each other. So, although the covid nineteen pandemic has kept them indoors fees in your says, it is not slowed them down every Friday, the lead online strikes and fled social media with pictures of themselves, holding up signs from their kitchens and bedrooms. She says for many young people. Leveraging online platforms is nothing new so even during a pandemic. They're prepared to keep demanding climate
Democracy Cant Thrive in Chaos
"Jane Fonda was arrested five times for environmental protest outside the Capitol this fall. She accepted a BAFTA film award while being taken into custody and photographs. The actor cast a striking figure in handcuffs in red will coat. It's a color fitting for the protests which are inspired by global school strikes and called Fire Drill. Fridays fresh from her arrest streak. The activists joined environmental justice campaigner and community organizer. Peggy Shepherd to record a live episode of Dare. I say in partnership with AMEX AT SAKS fifth avenue in New York City Peggy has been at the forefront of the Environmental Justice Movement in the US for a long time. She founded nonprofit organization. We Act for Environmental Justice in North Manhattan in the eighties. It helped low income New Yorkers in particular communities of color fight harmful environmental policies. It now fights for better environmental and health policies on a local and national level in the I live recorded episode of Dare. I say peggy and Jane discussed civil disobedience the green new deal resilience and why it is important for women to lead the climate conversation. How can we remedy empathy crisis? That has hurt generations of Americans. Why is the cult of rugged individualism driving climate disaster? What can older generations learned from teenagers at the decades on the frontlines? Peggy and Jane Have Not Stop Fighting. They are women who dare. Hi You know. We have a lot in common where activists arrested. But why have you decided to be arrested and to be active at this moment in time over Labor Day weekend? I felt great malaise because I drive an electric car and I do away with single use plastics and I make all those right personal lifestyle choices but I knew that they're not going to be able to scale up in time to get us where we need to be is a good place to start but it's no place to stop and so. I read a book by Klein that talked about a green new deal and talked about gratitude and it inspired me to get out of my comfort zone as Greta says we have to do and not behave business as usual as you know better than a lot of people. We have decades many decades more than forty years writing speeches and books and getting the word out about the science. What the science says. And we've marched and we've rallied and we've played nice and it hasn't worked enough and we only have eleven years left and so we have to up the stakes and I think we have to mobilize and go into the streets and put our bodies on the line and engage in civil disobedience and risk getting arrested. I don't WANNA BE ARRESTED. But you know you have to be willing to risk it so I went. I moved to DC for four months to win gaijin fired real Fridays because Fridays is the day that Greta and the student climate strikers have chosen to strike for climate so I want to support them and helpless their message teenagers today were born more than a decade after NASA scientists warned Congress about climate change in nineteen eighty eight. James Hansen told lawmakers at the time that he was ninety nine percent sure that human activity was causing temperatures to rise. Teenagers today have inherited the climate crisis. They have grown up. In a world of apocalyptic headlines and increasingly volatile weather. It's no surprise that they are extremely intelligent educated and now taking to the streets sweetest teenager. Greta Tonsberg inspired a wave of student protests across the world when she skipped school to strike outside of her country's parliament. And so how do you feel that? We really can motivate young people and youth to really be the strong activists that they need because they are going to inherit this climate this globe right now. What I'm feeling is I don't need to motivate them. They're motivating me. They're the ones because they see that we've taken their future not we. The fossil fuel industry has is robbing them of the future and we can't let them shoulder this burden by themselves. So Granny's unite. Older people have to get out there and and we have to stand along side them. This is a collective crisis that's going to require a collective solution that means all of us together because it is a stomach and we know that we can each take the issues that we need. Whether it's changing light bulbs whether it's recycling. We know that we can do all of those things. But we know that it's systemic and that we gotta come together collectively to educate our elected officials and to pressure the policymakers to really pass the kind of legislation that we all need. But we know that we can't do that with the message. Simply reducing carpet or a message. Simple energy efficiency. We've got a really embraced the values that appeal to all of our communities because Oliver Communities are not whole. They're not healthy. We know that millions of people in this country are living with bad air. They don't have clean water and they are disproportionately impacted by pollution and the Environmental Justice Movement has really for the last thirty years were to achieve environmental protection for all communities and we know also that when we talk about climate change and you hear people talk about climate justice. Climate Justice is not just a cool phrase. It's really a term that is focused on the most vulnerable communities. And how we've got to take action to ensure that the most vulnerable are protected because when that happens we're all protected and so we've got agreement deal and we know that that's been an important framework that's been proposed and it's wonderful that she was not prescriptive. Afc and the others who have talked about this framework we know that it has motivated sectors of of our country to get together and fill in the blanks. What they think is a green new deal what they need for their communities and for their lives and that's been a very important motivator. I think in this moment for a long time. There's been this rap that the environmental movement is white and elite. I think even Obama kind of felt that way but my experience is that that is not the case and then in fact people of color who live in the frontline communities have been very much at the forefront of the environmental movement and are the bravest strongest voices. It's a stereotype that people of color don't really care about the environment. Because they're really concerned with with jobs and food and of course we're all concerned with that but what? I've found predominantly above ninety sixth street when we have monthly membership meetings. It's not the more fluent Brown's donors who are coming out on these sites. It's people from public housing. We get so many calls about air pollution coming into their apartments about odors and emissions from trucks cars buses. We have worker training program for under employed young men and we invited them to come to our membership meetings to hear about issues of climate change or toxins in and chemicals cosmetics and they were able to understand the issue they were able for the probably the first time in their lives to talk to an elected official and tell them what they felt in what they needed and so it's about support. People know what they need. They just need some support to be able to advocate and to be able to. Maybe have a place to come and use computer. Have a place to come and ask some key questions. Let me just tell you that the upcoming mayoral public housing tenants are going to be a major factor in who gets elected and we're going to be organizing them and there's coalitions all over the city to ensure that some of the most vulnerable people are the ones who are going to be part of the solution and so I would simply say that the most vulnerable when we address them we lift all boats. It's not about trickle down. It's about lifting everyone up together and that's what creates an equitable and just society.
Disaster Squared: A Hurricane During the Pandemic
"Hey Daniel so who you've been talking to so I've been talking to a number of people who are preparing for both hurricane risk and flood risk this year mostly along the Mississippi River From Iowa down in New Orleans and some of them the really worried about the impact that big flood or big storm could have during the pandemic. I would get on ninety. He's and talk. Pray and this is mayor. Belinda constant of Gretna Louisiana. Greta is right across the Mississippi River from New Orleans and I wanted to zoom in on this region South Louisiana because it is a hot spot for cove nineteen but it is also a place that facebook flood and hurricane risk so of Gretna a natural disaster during the pandemic mayor. Constant is most worried about her. Vulnerable residence I have a senior apartment facility in my city. That's that you know. Keeps me up every night already. Now I'm going to have to worry about what to do with seniors with you know a hurricane come. We're GONNA have to West just dorm to the extent you know people in South Louisiana. If it's a cat three they're gone. Delete under this situation. It's place for them to go. Most of these hotels are closed office area but mayor constant also worried that the support that she normally relies on in a disaster. The state nearby governments local volunteers. They may not be fully available to help in this situation. I'm telling you we have an incredible working relationship with all of our elected officials at the governor's office down to municipalities. But they're dealing with their own issues. I'm sure they will work with us in partnership to do whatever we need to give us whatever we need to deal with it. But they're going to have limitations. They're already stretched in many many different ways. We've gotTA figure out how to protect our own. Because everybody else is in their own crisis
Why Circular Conversational Design is Best with Alison Greenberg, CEO at aflow
"Was reading online. That you have a pretty impressive background you went to Yell. And you studied anthropology you played in the Symphony Orchestra there. And then you did some work in the arts for Awhile and now you work in voice technology and there's been a lot of people that have come from the creative space so I'd love for you to talk about briefly your journey into how and why you got into voice technology years ago. Yeah absolutely well. One of my favorite things about this industry is how cross-disciplinary it is. There's really not one background of people who under boys and I don't think many different in that respect but I will say that really from the time I could talk. Language wasn't just the way I express myself it's Mike Currency and so music is something that I was always drawn to. I played music in high school and College. I still to this day. I studied anthropology because of how central language was to it as a social science. I didn't study English or history. I studied a social science because I loved looking at language as a tool and as a currency especially in ultra contacts and in the voice industry but actually with my company of flow we started with chat bots. Language is very much currency of conversational user. Interfaces or curious as we call them and so you know voice and chat go hand in hand they are. Interbay says that requires specificity precision and entertaining use of language but the design principles across voice and chat. Can you really different? And so- entering Voice Technology. You know it's kind of a misnomer. I didn't enter voice technology. I entered chat and that was because when we started flow. Mico Gandara South Miller was actually the driving force behind beginning not company and he was noticing automation taking he was noticing the role of AI in businesses in communications and he started to build the baht of an NBA all star name Russell Westbrook at the time of Oklahoma City Thunder and that was our first bought and then we started to build from there realizing that we scale communications we could even skill personas and brand identities into these conversational experience and so while we believed that automation and I were powering communication. We also believe that is really immature. I don't know if you hear this often but do people ever talk to you about kind of how I is lacking yes. That's definitely something that comes up and I know especially when it came out a couple years ago and consumers used it. There was kind of frustration and so I feel like there's now this like element of education and awareness of like. No it's growing and and we're working on it and getting people to understand that totally. Yeah I mean in technology. You hear a lot about the hype cycle rate. So we might be in that trough of disillusionment which is a piece of language. I just love it's kind of various the trump disillusionment makes sense. Alexa is a teenager. You know came out. In two thousand four chat bots really the dawn of chat bots was in the mid twenty tonnes. We are looking at technologies. That are not just immature in some time. They're immature in the sense of the amount of work that has to go into making them seem less so this industry needs our help. Our words and our design for it to actually work. It's not intelligent yet right so if a is a teenager you know. Teenagers can crash your car. Teenagers can make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of damage especially on the part of brands but teenagers can also change the world so just look at Greta. Van Ver look at the kinds of young people who are driving social change today. That's the approach that we take to chat and voice it'll flow and match. Why we built the concept of conversational design is because we believe that we have to work together with these systems and with the power moderation and conversation design is actually the most important part of Charlton boys today. If these systems are designed well technology to incredible but it's not going to work welter these her. Yeah which brings me to. You made a comment in another interview. You did how you talked about. Hamas boys conversations are linear and what you do out of flow as you really work on creating a circular conversational design. Can you describe the different? So people understand it and why it's important to what you do at a flow hersher. Yeah so out of what we developed. Circular Conversation Design as our attempts to fix these broken visual and verbal designs. Keeps the industry has kind of had to back dialogue into the tools that we have to build it. And so I think really voice and charter just like any industry were almost only as good as our tools and so what we do to kind of choose actualized or conversation design. We talk about a traffic circle. Have you ever been a England or actually you live in New Jersey? I was GonNa say we definitely have traffic circles in New Jersey? So yes perfect. Yes so we'll have talking to people who've been to New Jersey because you're intimately familiar with the roundabout traffic circle. You know you have to get on a certain point and then you make turtles people who aren't from UK or New Jersey. These very confusing carry. I've learned But the cool thing about around about or traffic circle as you can get on off any talk and so if you miss your exit you just keep going in the circle. You have another opportunity to make that exit once you exit you can drive through the backup but you always have an opportunity to get back on. And that's how human conversations work the tools of the trade up until now have kind of destroyed the potential conversations. I in my opinion because we've mainly used the decision tree right. So that's linear design thinking conversations as linear. But that's not how we speak. You know I could talk to you right now about projects for doing it a flow. We can pivot to women and boys. I could ask you what it's like to live in New Jersey. That's how communication works. There's so many circles within circles. There's so many overlaps in and crossed actions and so we had a great experience actually Boy Summit last summer we were really lucky to be part of Amazon's conversation design workshop. One got to take some great echo. Show fives and They disqualified anyone who designed using a decision tree. And so that kind of shows you the way that the industry has been. I know a lot of designer still used decision trees. And it's because it's how away to understand the computer logic but we don't conversational napster and we think of them as a set of nodes that are all linked to one another wherever and whenever possible in a circular fashion and just like that traffics. Are you have to be able to get on and get off at any point? In time we should be able to return to the part of the flow to the extent that the platform we build allows us to do so we should be able to return to order the flow midway through at via
Greta Thunberg: Leaders must act in unison during crises
"On this Earth Day climate activists credit to Berg urged world leaders to put their differences aside and act together based on science in addressing two major crises we need to tackle both the corona and I make this crisis at the same time as we tackle the climate and environmental emergency because we need to be able to tackle two crises as once a two year old Swedish activist meter comments in a digital Earth Day event in Stockholm organized by the Nobel Prize museum she said the climate crisis is not a slowing down even in times like these and a recent

Top 10 Performers of the 2010s
"Actually I am kind of I write poetry Snow Book Secret Notebook or your poet. Yeah that's great but you like to hear what sure sure it doesn't really Ryan though. Okay kind of like him better when they don't me to all right so we've heard your number ten. We've heard my number six Adam driver. Who's your number nine performer? The decade? Okay boy this hurts me because it wasn't too long ago I was asking if this was the best actress of the twenty tens and I still think she's in the conversation but Elizabeth Moss. When I sat down to do this list fell down to number nine okay and I think for me. It's it's partly again. I'm backing into the list here. It's partly because her strongest work was on television. I don't know if it's fair. We're a film show so I'M GONNA hold that. It's not fair okay. It probably isn't yet to discount the handmaiden and madman but you're right if you include those. Then how is she? Not One of the performance of the Dick and Jane campion's crime series top of the lake. Yeah so so you know those three works alone in her work in them specifically I mean madman. I made the argument. She's as crucial to that series. Almost as crucial. Let's say Don Draper. She was the lead in in Top of the lake in the lead the handmaid's tale but I look back at the big screen to and The one I love I think great in. I know you love the film more than Me Adam but the collaboration with Alex. Ross Perry's Ben. My favorite thing about those including are probably hurt toured force performance of the last. Ten years is in her smile. I think just from last year and then yeah squeezing in that great supporting part in US last year as well getting to show her comic chops I had to keep her on this list but when I started comparing her to the filmography we're going to get to higher up. Yeah I couldn't put up there at the very top. Yes same process with me. Though she slipped a little further I did begin by ranking top ten actresses top ten actors then figured out how to merge them and go made the cut. I Have Elizabeth Moss in my six through ten actresses but did not make my top ten overall. My number ten is an actress. And this is one where you could accuse me Josh of maybe looking ahead a little too much but I think the foundation of great work in this decade is also there. She is the only other one that woman I'm about to mention. She's the only other one with driver who feels to me like locks. We could already pencil them in for when we're doing this list in ten years okay. We're GONNA look back on the twenty twenties and go. Of course. This was the decade of Adam driver and of Sir Sha Ronin the three great performances come in Brooklyn in Lady Bird and of course last year in Greta. Gerwig 's little women and there's two great films there for me all time great films frankly in Lady Bird and little women. I'm less high on Brooklyn though I like Brooklyn quite a bit and I really do think. It's a wonderful performance from her. She also appears of course in Wes. Anderson's Grand Budapest hotel and I really liked her in Joe. Wright's Hannah for me. Ronin is the insistent innocent. There is some naievety about her. As you look at those performances Brooklyn ladybird little women but really just a lack of experience. There's the census. She still has a lot to learn about herself and about the world and relationships. She's going to make mistakes. She's GonNa make a fool of herself but that's because she's always going to put herself on the line there is a determination and there's a voracious nece to Ronin characters that I find really appealing. I was looking back at my notes from our review of Lady Bird and I mentioned the way she just kind of burns with this intensity and this focus. It's almost like she's from another planet in the way she talks and the way she studying the people she's engaging with there is this provocation that is inherent to the lady bird character where she's just so eager to expand her knowledge her base of knowledge. It seems like that's what she's after in every encounter in life and maybe more than anything. Josh the reason why I wanted to make sure I fit. Ronin on this list is I just want to continue to put out into the universe. This idea that I did see floating around social media after a recent Hollywood reporter with Ronin and Greta Gerwig where they talk about future collaborations with each other. And there's a great question by the interviewer posed to Gerwig about working with Ronan and differences in working with her now versus lady bird and I thought Gerg's answer was really instructive. She says it's the benefit of working with someone you've worked with before. I felt like in some ways I had conceived lady bird before I knew she was playing it and I'd written drafts of little women before I knew she was playing it but I don't know any other way to say it. Except she was an author of Lady Bird but even more so she was an author of little women. I felt like she knew exactly what we were making the whole time as a filmmaker as much as an actor she really became a second director for me. It was like an extension of every thought. I had she'd walk out in another step. I think honestly the closest I've had to it is writing. With Noah Noah Baumbach who is her partner. But that's fitting of. Gerwig I think in her personality that she so generous in giving Ronin all that credit as an artistic collaborator but I think it speaks to the intelligence and again that voracious nece that comes through in her character's it's probably embedded within ronin herself. That made her such a good collaborator with Gerwig. And the key line from this is Gerwig saying I'm interested to see what movie we make when searches in her fifties. And I'm in my sixties. WoN'T THAT BE INTERESTING? And I'm thinking that's great but I want to see the movie that you make together when searches in her thirties when searches in her forties. I can't wait until the fifties I would be perfectly content of those to just continue to make movies together until the end of time. So Sir Sharon did just sneak onto my list ten. Hey I like your band with Jona rubies. Len Fans knew awesome.

Learn as I think anybody who listens to the watch probably already gust. And I've always played this game with all my film nerd fans and so I figured one when I started listening to your podcasts. Which obsessed with a huge fan of I figured especially with Amanda Sort of counterpoint? To talk to your thinking Shawn's like I just thought this'll be a fun game to play the game. Basically and again. This is sorry for listeners. Who are not going to be in on this because it's so inside. It's not even that insight. It's but it's it's really not OK okay. I won't apologize here. We go is a good game in and you deserve it. It's the best director per decade and the best director who die who had their debut. That decade does that make sense. Did I explain this? Should we use an example to help people understand it? What's an example that we won't? Won't you trample on the choices that we've made here? Well we look at this decade. We had we had like a number of actually great film. Directors made their debut Jordan. Peele with get ou- Greta Gerwig with Lady Bird Vince Gilligan Man. This favorite with El Camino until nineteen many wonderful. Thanks well actually. Gertler made no thanks. But it's it's it's it's it's. It's good to bring up Vince. As an example because he actually that was his feature directing debut which is all coming up. Now the thing is it's not necessarily not saying what's the best directorial debut? Just the director that we appreciate. The most made that debut made their debut in that decade so I think that there's a couple of semantic complications around now and you know as well as I do that there are student films. Their short film features so. Let's lay the groundwork. Because Vince directed episodes of Britain. He directed the pilot breaking bug which I think was in the prior decade but we're talking feature directorial debut so that seems easy to Parse. It's not as easy to Parse as it seems. Now tell me why well. Are you talking about dual are GonNa be Spielberg is is a particularly complex example? Because of nine or you're talking about nine gallery 'cause that's TV while he made a movie when he was seventeen called firelight for five hundred bucks and is that a film. Is that a feature film even his parents saw. I wouldn't say a featured like a debut meaning. It was released in movie theaters got it. Okay commercially available. Commercially available attack. Those are good ground rules. I'm glad that we established that play into my less later on. I do consider to be because it didn't get released in theaters. Well it is a feature film but it was not this little guy but that is considering his feature debut his first full length movie right what. What's the movie after that? Then Land Express okay all right so yes we'll stick to that okay before we play the game now. The people understand the game I want but just add one other thing the interesting thing about this game and I think will when we go through. We'll see it's where the decades are hard because there's just so many amazing options and where the decades are not A. There's not a lot of options. I just find the conversation around that to be interesting because lanes a little bit about where movies are and where they're doing exactly specifically the nineties which I thought was just a burst of like creative inspirational film makers and then the very decade after the ONS which I struggled I struggled to find. I have some counterpoint to that point but I I wanna use this as an opportunity to pick a bone with you. Oh Wow okay I resent you. I resent your your appearance on this podcast because what I what we need. What this podcast needs is people like you making movies and television shows will but you love movies and you film in a very discreet way. Yes but and I mean I guess we're going to get into it right now. It's gotTa think about think about indie filmmakers. What happened let's say Ryan Kugler? Who Loved Fruitvale? Right mazing what happened to him. After he made fruitvale he went into the machine he went into the machine. And that's what's happening with a lot of these other directors and that. That's the difference between the nineties and now so I think. Pta came out with holiday today. Is he making you know Batman in two years and by the way no not dissing on Batman? I'm excited for When Matt Raises Version of it? Because I'm a fan of his but I think it's just the industry is dictating a lot of what directors are doing now and you know and not to 'em this point that's the machine that we're in right now so and that's more reflective of the decade so t to to get to my TV point. Tv's where you get to make the interesting shit. I don't know if I could have made mister robot as a feature in fact I tried well. That was my fault. Got a little long winded. With how long was that? That forty five. Our film now That feature from I wrote ninety pages of wasn't even into act tune. That's when I realized I was in trouble. Was there a divergent path for you where after comet you could have just doubled down and said I'll stay. I'll continue to stay kind of broke but I'll keep making movies will. Yeah I mean that was the plan I was going to make Mr Buzzing indie feature and got stuck with it and Steve Golan Who You know owns anonymous content who Read the pages of Missouri Button at the time detective had just come out and he just He had just produced. That and I thought women that will this is fucking coal. And I don't need to do anything with this. I don't need to refashion the script that I had in mind and fitted into this to our box and honestly I was just really more. I remember thinking I was way more excited about true detective than I was about anything. Elsa came out there. Trust them into. What are your thoughts on true detective because I have no idea? I don't love thank you. Yeah I think I think I see yes. The first season I think true detective on its face is like a accomplished piece of television filmmaking and also I'm a huge fan of cary Fukunaga always and forever Perhaps not for the same reasons. Assess it to me actually wrap. It was such a turning point. Anything his best thing that he's done. I'm not even going to say Jane Eyre Okay. I haven't I haven't seen that I haven't seen the new Bond movie I but I'm really looking forward to it because I'm also a bond person and also I just you know I think true true detective as this carries best thing. I think that's probably true but my issue with detective is not actually true detective itself. It is the dialogue around your detective. And also I think that's a pivot point in terms of when and how we started evaluating TV in terms of tracking shots and the actual just the athletic like filmmaking as a way to bring the an experience. What is this athletic yet? Flex now and then on twitter people are now saying slaps what what is all? I don't understand that you want to explain the Internet. Let's start with the athletic because Amanda I. I've heard you use a lot and I've I've been on a lot of sets of never heard anyone say the words. I think the first person he was at my friend on the TV critic Philip asking and I think it puts its finger on this idea of money that you bring her up because she wrote this she wrote. It was a harsh. I mean whatever I respect her reviews she dissed my one episode of Mister Robot whereas all one tracking shot. I assume yes is what you mean by athletic because I do think that Filmmaking and TV and everything is more than cameras and more than where the camera is and there is such a absolutely station online. The damore as more aspect of filmmaking and I think that the tracking shot is caption of that and just like. Oh Wow. Did you see what he did. That was so cool. Oh my God. The camera is moving. You know don't you think it but don't you think has a to me every every sort of choice that you make with the camera has an effect and yes to some extent it it takes you out of it and draws attention to itself but to some extent. I really I mean what do you think of the Copacabana Sean? And I and I and I do. Actually I think even tracking protective is effective. But you know we're doing a podcast right now. That isn't essentially about how we talk about. Film and like establishing a Canon of source. And the cannon is so reliant on where do we put the camera and what did they itch on showing us an either. Don't respond to that artistically at some point. I'm just like Yay like fancy camera. Shots you got it. Congratulations to you but I do also think it distracts from the other equally important. I feel making that. Don't get enough credit. I think code is also a specifically athletic is code for Masculinity. You know it's code for this sort of The might of the male filmmaker. Now that's not always true if you watch like strange days for example. Kathryn bigelow is doing a lot with the camera yet. It is unorthodox and cool and might have what would otherwise be deemed kind of masculine energy. But I do think that true detective and largely the dialogue like you're saying was about a lot of dudes being like Yo. This is sick now. Personally I thought it was sick. Oh okay but I I would. I was not a fan of those scripts and I don't think that story is very strong but I thought that was really well
Study Hall: Summit on Sustainable Fashion
"Went to study hall recently. No I didn't get detention. It was actually the exact opposite of detention. It was this really beautiful amazing six our experience. That happened a few weeks ago. Here in New York City Study Hall is an Educational Conference like that which is organized by slow factory and slow factories. Co-founder selene Simone. And it was this amazing six our experience of hearing from designers scientists educators and activists all on the topic of climate positively at scale within the fashion industry. So I know that you actually watched it online so you our listeners can also watch it online. How did you feel about study hall? Well first of all. It's it's an annual free summit on sustainable fashion so anyone can get tickets go which is so cool and then she also puts it all online so people like myself and address listeners. Who could not make the event you can see this incredible You know conference and bringing together of all of these people that are working on sustainable fashion so like how do we build a better? More sustainable ethic conscious fashion industry now and for the future so I was excited about this event and very excited of to watch it. Even if I wasn't there in person yeah and there were actually seven hundred people there in person. So how yeah. They were estimating that it was going to be something like five hundred and it was actually held at the New York Times Center. Which is this beautiful event space and auditorium and they had to turn the TV room that they set up downstairs into an overflow room. Kezman writing people were super into it. It was just an incredible day. I left so inspired. There were so many panelists that were amazing right and including the person who opened the conference is our past guest Carina Emmerick and really beautiful dedication. she's a native American fashion designer and she did this really beautiful recognition of the land that nyc sits on as being the home of the lanark people who were moved to Oklahoma in eighteen sixties. So the whole the whole day was really great. And I don't know what your takeaways were but my takeaways from the day were that planetary health is human health that climate change is a human rights issue And also so many panelists. It kept coming back again and again and again that there's this direct correlation between environmental abuses and human rights abuses And I'M NOT GONNA go into like Hella detail here but you can jump on study hall yourself and listen in if you want to. But but it was. I opening inspirational heartbreaking at times. But but really really great. Yeah so Crema opened the show with a powerful land. Acknowledgement LIKE WHITNEY. Mcguire did this Powerful labor acknowledgement so you have the landing management and then you have the Labor acknowledgement. You know this country is built on the backs of millions of enslaved African Americans. You know so. It's kind of just this reminder of of where we come from so that we can move forward to a brighter future with acknowledging where we came from and where this country comes from and how it was built and who have been the custodians of this country before us. Yeah I mean Creena just to quote her. She said indigenous people make up four percent of the world's population and we are still protecting eighty percent of the world's biosystems and she didn't explicitly say this but she kind of reminded us that while Greta. Thunberg is a powerful white activist. She's become the face of climate change. Indigenous activists have been fighting for the last two centuries to protect their land. But Yeah my main takeaways. All Star that climate change is a human rights issue. I think you have panelists Lillian Lou. Who said one in six people in the world work in a job related to fashion that sixty million people worldwide and only about two percent earn a living wage? So you know lots of really powerful stuff. Climate Positivie was the theme so quote to close low for actually going back to our roots of living in harmony with nature by providing sustainable scalable solutions for the long-term with ecologically regenerative practices and projects in alignment with environmental justice for Black Brown and indigenous communities. And something I thought was so cool and I know I think I called you to talk about April was the one x one conscious design initiative which is so cool it says partnership between the Slow Factory Foundation and Serov Sqi supported by the UN. And basically it's these partnerships. I abstained future. So you're pairing fashion designers with scientists for instance and designer telfar. Clemens is paired with scientists the end Skyros. Yeah she's a professor at fit. And I my mind was literally blown out. I have her on the show and in fact after we get on recording this. I'm just gonNA email her and be like hi. Would you like to come on the show? Yeah because not only. Is she working with her students? Fit to bio engineer. Leather and algae-based yarn. So just think about that. I can trust listeners. She went and she was talking about it on on study hall about how you can grow leather shapes essentially so without even having to so it because algae will just form to itself around a mold she has this incredible company called algae net with their motto is biology is the future of fashion and they promote this closely product life cycle so so many cool things happening and I think you should absolutely ask her on the show that would be really really cool to hear more about bio
Sustainable Travel: The Hard Truth with Lucy Siegle
"Twenty nineteen year in which the travel industry found itself in the spotlight over its role in contributing to climate change tourists now more aware than ever before the environmental cost of air travel. Tourism contributes around five percent of greenhouse gases according to the Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership at travel alone contributes to two point five percent of global emissions and these predictions suggest that these stats likely to triple by twenty fifty. If important changes are not maids however the tourism industry is responding in many diverse ways. For example the Guardian Travel Section now primarily focuses on destinations. That can be reached without the use of planes. Easyjet will carbon offset all flights by the end of twenty twenty initiatives such as green tourism? Have seen a leap in membership and provide hoteliers with a green check meter to promote more responsible tourism practices and global travel as a certainly more environmentally aware. Now environmental issues. I have to admit their uncomfortable truths for us in the travel industry so today we're taking the bull by the horns as it were and we're asking. Chiyo hey to tell us just how bad it is and also what we can do about it so environment environmental impact on travel. I think it's very good but the travel industry is trying to tackle this head on but I think we've also got some uncomfortable truths to face and in facing those uncomfortable truths. Hopefully we can make some headway into doing some stuff about it. But how in your opinion how? How bad is the travel industry for the world? How bad is the travel industry? Well if you look at some who just start with the elephant in the room so we look aviation you can say that aviation has a small part of the climate change pie in the comes in four percent. Something like that four percent. You might say well you know. In fact I've heard it said well PSA quivalent to say the fashion industry or something like that but we're in a very serious situation. Everyone's mentioned this to you. We all have to decarbonised really rapidly. So it doesn't matter. What your slice of the Pie is he needs to be getting it to zero. Unfortunately and aviation is one of the ones that's increasing and increasing exponentially so we could be seeing like a quarter of the world's carbon budget used by aviation in the very near future and that's not acceptable. Because you look at the amount of people that fly so I think in the UK. It's something like fifteen percent of the population tastes seventy five percent of the flights. Something like that. Probably most of them by me mainly you. Yes exactly so. It's not fair. Is it that all of that. Carbon budget should be used in that way so that that is the really really big existential and the media issue for the travel and tourism industry is that it's predicated on flights which have become cheaper and all the rest of it and then you get into a very interesting territory about offsetting and where we are now. How much needs to help and is by so? You really can't get very far. Ironically when we're talking about travel without coming across a very difficult brick wall I know this is the lady bird version of environmental issues but reminded y need to decarbonised. Oh so yeah so we are in. The era of climate crisis is not the only crisis that's affecting the bias fairs. We call the planet We also in the age of extinction. loss say rapid extinction loss of species. And we've got lots of different pressures. So the oceans absorbed ninety percent of of heat and a report came out a couple of weeks ago so that was in January February and it was irreputable evidence that the planet is is is warming because you can test the atmosphere will time. There's lots of different factors which might account for the heating when it comes to the oceans that is a controlled experiment ladies and gentlemen and we had the hottest oceans on record since records began and it is equivalent to exploding thousands of Hiroshima bombs in the ocean. That's the amount of energy and he is now in the ocean and this affects all sorts of things so for people in the UK who only really like one sort of fish which is called it means that if the oceans warm around the UK the COD will swim off to colder climes. And they all go to the Baltic states and we can't get any cards so it has a knock-on effects like that but it is proof incontrovertible evidence that the world is warming and a warming world brings with it a lot of problems including higher incidences of diseases oceans rising icecaps melting fires that burn hotter and are more widespread as we've seen in Australia etc etc etc so Greta Thambo says this so I'm GonNa say it but but if you were saying it I by the way she seems to have a wide for you have a great plot has exploded but you you were saying say funny because it's almost anniversary of me-meeting Greta Thornburg in Davos upper mountain and I said to my friend. This is absolutely legendary this point while. I don't think she's going to catch them did you. My friend resigned. I don't know I think she might anyway like two days later. Thirty two thousand kids marched in Belgium for Friday's for the future though is already regretting. Why statement and she just seems so as literally. Mitch Leigh Small. Once more young men conscious actually small. She's actually small and she's very softly spoken very unassuming and yeah. I mean what a presence will an accident force and I really care myself. I squandered that did you. Did you feel something around are no? That sounds ridiculous but people that I've got that power to to have an impact on so many people often do when they walk into the room. Yeah think so. I think I was just being very defensive about what this kid you know. I've been doing this for. Aj's join the queue. Hello but I also now you'll court so you were just about to court for a minute. Yes she's incredibly powerful force and she. I remember her face and her being rather than another thing. That's quite disarming if you spend time around High Profile people with this charisma that quite jazz Hans. She's not just handsome toll so I think I just took a while to understand what she was bringing But she's very very good and what I was going to save it. She says a lot of people. Ask Me and when is the climate crisis going to be over? It's not a moment. It is an era. This is the reality so once you accept that of the reality the climate era. What are you going to do about it? But we can't we can't. We're not GONNA stop traveling. People are not going to stop traveling for fun for work. The world is a very a much smaller place. You might say well people might have to but look what's happened this week. The Corona virus so. This plane's not taking off from China China is basically closed. Which is so. They'll be kind of carbon win for that in a way because they'll be some fear emissions. We're in a numbers game now. So you go to you. Go to look at these things but you know there's an example very very recently where we might say. We're not going to travel. But actually you're not gonNA travel so there's a number scenarios that might happen where you went to travel so what's difficult. The moment is that it's just all on us making the decision not to travel and you may have children who are very inspired by Greta. You might be parents. Have I inspired by Greta? Making a decision to take a train journey instead of Dumping on the plane and these are really interesting. Personal kind of points of maneuver and negotiation at the moment within families and stuff like that and it will be very interesting to see how the travel industry which. I'm sure I shouldn't talk about as if it's a big homogenized thing 'cause I know it's very nuanced different parts of it but they've got to kind of surf this weird moment with us really and we have got to come up with more inventive products. We've got to come up with more different ways of doing things we've got to look at some tough
Bernie Sanders pranked by Russians posing as Greta Thunberg
"Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders appears to have been the victim of a hoax pulled off by Russian pranksters but America is not soft and Alexi stole the old off in a December interview on Skype the pranksters had Sanders thinking he was talking to climate activists Greta tumors hi Greta how you why in that nice to meet you the fake Greta offered to lend her support to the Sanders campaign what is the best thing to do well if you would like to help in our campaign that would be wonderful the entire call lasted over ten minutes a recording of the call was posted on YouTube Thursday the Sanders campaign did not comment on its authenticity Friday hi Mike Ross yeah
Dodgers Acquire 2018 AL MVP Mookie Betts, 2012 Cy Young Winner David Price
"And despite the fact that it seems there is in some cases a assumption that Mookie Betts was going to leave the red Sox that he was not going to re sign with the red Sox that maybe even if he did entertain an extension of the red Sox it wouldn't come until after this year when he was in free agency in hearing from multiple teams I still cannot wrap my head around the Boston Red Sox trading him for what they traded him like I get it you've got some prospects you get ready David prices money get Alex Verdugo you got two more prospects Jeter downs a short stop and Connor won a catcher from LA because of Bruce star Greta Rawls medicals Boston wanted out of that so can smite it goes to the twins and greater all and another prospect go to Los Angeles the red Sox then pick up eight shortstop Jeter downs that was drafted thirty second by the Reds in twenty seventeen and then shipped to LA in the week deal and also Conor want a third round pick in twenty seventeen out of university of Houston like even if those guys end up being every day big leaguers which still you know not a given just because of the nature of Major League Baseball how hard it is for guys to not just get to the big leagues but then become every day guys and much less all star caliber guys even if that happens you're still trading M. V. P. you still trade in MVP this might actually be a bit of a better deal because of the fact the greater all is said Tommy John surgery but you know it was just the red Sox wanting to get under the luxury tax and move an asset that just about everyone it seems new was going to be moved and I just can't buy into them having no choice can't I can not buy into their hands being tied and having to make this deal so you know the cardinals will have some interesting now I guess guys in that vein moving forward the most notably potentially Jack Flaherty Ben Fredrickson regret piece in the post dispatch it was yesterday my days are all messed up and everything was yesterday Sunday on you know if now would be the time to try and get the spring extension done with flirty I don't know Flaherty would listen right now but if they could try to lock him up in la command if your picture maybe the security is a lot more appealing than if your position player because of the risk of injury but maybe Jack Flaherty won't entertain that we've seen you know the extensions of the last few years we've seen the pre are extensions with Matt carpenter back in twenty years at fourteen fifteen with Paul the young with cold warm we then saw Mao's Michaelis get his extension from the cardinals last spring that we saw the carpenter extension at start of the season last year although that's apples and oranges because again that wasn't a pre RBL he already got that but I just don't know if you will see guys continued to be eager to take those deals are feel see guys move towards free agency but either way I still think it's bad for the game bad for the sport bad for fans but the red Sox just kind of gave up I'm trying to figure out making it work with Mookie Betts instead cash in their chips to get under the luxury tax and you know get some prospects back prospector that you know I I totally understand not one to give guys away but you know it's almost the flip side this time almost like they're valuing that controlling get under the tax more than they value and I don't know I for one just as a fan as a baseball fan you know it's not great great for the Dodgers great for the Dodgers and they've got a heck of a line up
"greta" Discussed on Newsradio 1200 WOAI
"You ready for this the BBC will be partnering with and you know where your lover you can't live without Greta soon bird ladies and gentleman seventeen years old she'll be doing a series for climate change and global warming so it's good to see that the B. B. C. is bringing in the heavy hitters the Swedish environmentalists Greta soon Berg who just turned seventeen and who's been programmed by her parents that should be a fun show eight hundred two eight to twenty eight eighty two let's grab another call queens New York Eddie I'm right around the corner from you how are you Hey gang good afternoon how's it going good welcome I am I'm an airforce back to when I had the the thing I wanted to mention that I I'm I'm curious about it is this not a big deal the fact that last election twenty sixteen twenty nine percent research that you twenty eight twenty eight percent to research that the Latino vote going to president trump isn't that a huge deal I think it's a huge deal I think it's gonna be a lot bigger I think it's over look I don't think anyone everyone talks about it and I think if he's a so called racist as they always say all the nonsense they taught their Adam the fact that he got twenty eight percent with all those attacks against them I mean I I don't I don't know how old he can't go but well I think one of the reasons is and thank you for your call and he is the news media there they direct the narrative and if even when you go to when you look at and again the on the conservative side we don't talk much about demographic this and demographic that that's designed to divide and conquer and that's what the Democrats strategy is been very good at we'll get this group of people that feel this way very angry at that group of people and then we'll tell the women that without us they can't however the reality is most minority groups categorize that way by the left have more in common with conservative values then liberal progressive values that's the fact of it that's probably why they don't wanna talk about it for example the Latino community the incredible work ethic the family value the family structure the religion the foundational religion in so many countries where people come here to settle resettle or and and where they come here legally religion is such ship it play such a big role and this and that the interesting thing is the same thing can be said for the black vote and I don't know if the news media they don't want to bring it up but the new it it I'm glad you called Eddie insure that statistic because people are under the impression that there's one percent of this group in point old three percent of that group and then there's just that guy can from the radio with a pickup truck in a rebel flag vote for trump that's not the case all you have to do is Google you pick who ever you do not think would vote for Donald Trump and Google VAQ definition for Donald Trump our trans genders for Donald Trump Latinos are Donald Trump pick one immigrants for Donald Trump small business owners are just go pick one and you're gonna be shocked you don't hear that about it in the news media and and the black community is the same way with the religious roots and the love and respect of god and even when you go deeper into older demographics you do find a on mentioned respect for law enforcement we're supposed to believe all this propaganda that dripped out of eight years of bombing as some like this group doesn't like cops and this group doesn't like that and that group does it it now the more you do the deeper you drill into America the more American values you'll find in common that's the craziest thing it's like whether it was my family coming over from Hungary or Poland or my friends family coming over from Italy they want to learn the language they love the American flag they're proud of the military so right off the bat the talking points are not what the new twenty first century liberal progressive Democratic Party.
"greta" Discussed on Bullseye with Jesse Thorn
"That feeling of home and hearth that lake pile of girls reading the letter letter feeling right that is so essential to the film. Yeah I mean I think it's funny. I never thought about it is. There's no real antagonist inist until people started bringing that up to me and I was like. Oh yeah they're right there isn't I guess for me. I don't know with all movies but but particularly with this story. If felt like the thing was I wanted people to crawl inside the screen and live there with these people. People and I don't know all directors are all different but for me like I need to love my actors like I need to feel like I I mean because I'm spending all this time with them to and so That I I picked people that I love and then I I hope hopefully hopefully shoot them lovingly and then then everybody gets a big warm feeling I I mean it's not the only thing I'm interested in but Certainly with this story was a big part of it it's bull's eye I'm Jesse Thorn. I'm talking with Greta Gerwig. So as you mentioned the structure the film and the structure of little women hangs on the question of marriage. Yes and you set that up right right up top. Yeah Mary do dead. Yeah married her dad. Do you intend the story in your film. To end ambiguously in terms of marriage I do the end of the book on the one hand and then do the end of life on the other hand. I always find that question actually symptoms of asked you know in Q.. Naser they were like but what really happened. This is all fiction. I don't even know what the ontological reality of that question is in terms of You know I definitely had an idea behind it of real and fiction but the fiction is just as real as the real because it's all constructed anyway but you you know. Maybe it's my like Christopher Nolan spinning up at the end with a dream I don't know Greta Gerwig I have have so love both of your movies and I'm so grateful. He came back here to talk about this.

"That movie. Love that movie. What's not to love love? And you're and you're very fond of John. Wayne I understand. John Wayne's my favorite person who moves in the movies removed beautifully. He moved beautifully. Yeah I I love How slow he moves? That was always the thing that I just. I just like. He takes his time. The takes his time. Is this scene at Honda. Where he's talking to Geraldine page while he's making horseshoes? Oh yeah you know. He's firing up. Poor shoes offering awesome cool off and it's it's more than just a bit of business right. It's a it's a major bit of choreography right. He never stops talking ray. But he's he's it's movement this choreography. It's quicker famous put there's also Languid witness to him and he has the thing that I think movies can do which I don't know if he's handsome or not. It goes beyond on that. He's he has a Gra- There's gravity in a presence and a feeling and You know would say it's the thing that with movies were actors can become their own cinema themselves they can dictate the terms of it and in He had that I just. I think I'm also because I'm always interested in In in movement an and I think it's probably has to do with my background in dance. Just you know him anywhere in a movie. Yeah it's not you could could wear a mask and you'd be like no no that one is indeed now. John Ford Work John Wayne very often. They worked beautifully together together.

I don't like it when you were making movies. I I'm jealous. I am a jealous person. No but I I feel that way about all my actors but hurl in particular. It's it's sort of embarrassing to admit but like I have to. There's an overcome for me. I want them to do everything and I want them to be successful but part of me is sad that they ever have to act for anyone else but it's true you have a connection and something special now.

"It and you can even post it online so you can distribute your own movie. Now that's right I mean and that wasn't available to know and he was starting no or anybody of a of a of his age ship bracket and This is just in the past decade or so that this is to pass right but what a sea change. I know I mean I think it's Obviously there's lots of things that are changing about filmmaking and the form itself of kind of everyone being a documentarian themselves in some level But then also you know how the form of what's captured on on a camera when there are new forms and new things developing. I always come back to is that. I do think that movies are durable form in the sense of like in one sitting that there's An experience it's somewhere between like ninety minutes and three hours or whatever it is that you have experience in a sitting and I think it's a I think as much as the everything changes in the way people see in the different things and there's a lot of talk about that and of course there should be okay and And of course everything changes but it's it's also people gathering together to see a story in one go. That's about as old as you get like that is. We've been doing this for a long time. I don't think that's going away. I think it and there's all these permutations offshoots in different versions but that. I think we'll stay. I think so too. I mean you know. Television Division is great and the new generation television. That's being that's being created now is understandably not only getting a huge audience. I put a lot of respect and a lot of engagement on the audience's part but it's not the same thing as what you just described. No it's different. It's it's different and that's better. It's just just different experience. I just think it's funny that the the idea that people believe that somehow movie theaters would go away way. You would never say that about a concert You would wear say they're gonNA stop touring because nobody goes to see them. No you want to see your favorite band or singer in person Ray. Luby's you know I I loved. I loved what Sam Mendis said when he won a nineteen seventeen one of the Golden Globes. He said I'm so. Oh excited because I hope that this will get. It opens next week in theaters. I hope more of you will go to the theater and see it and boy did then but that's what else greater full that's ideal because what he's saying is I don't. It's not not caring but I don't care about your water care about you. Go about film and then maybe going to see the way it's meant to be scene. Yeah I agree I mean I do think it's I do think it's funny. I mean I duNno no no I. This is a probably longer conversation than the spot. CASS gives credit like th that. I don't want to take over the whole thing but I do think I think what's interesting in an economy in in in is there's A. There's a tremendous amount of of convenience in terms of you know Whether it's getting an uber that plays music. Hugh have chosen already like this sort of seamless. Experience that you can have Or you know Being at home in the comfort of your home and all these things that do. Are you know amazing innovations and we have Ah the ability to take advantage of in this country but at the same time when you are when you go to museums uh-huh now How crowded they are and it's inconvenient to see like if you're GonNa go see Monet's waterlilies willies that's inconvenient? They are there they are there. They are not moving they are there and actually it's more or popular than ever. So maybe there's something swinging the other direction about it's it's this the sort of luxury of inconvenience which I don't know that's a that's a half baked? Thought Nobody I. It's an intriguing thought though and as you say it's a lengthy conversation yes but it's a but it's a really important one. Yeah now for instance. You chose to shoot Komo. thirty-five the luxury of inconvenience no. That's a very luxurious thing. I chose to shoot movie on film. I chose to Shuman Schumer movie on film for a few different reasons. One of one of the reasons was my movie takes place in a in the eighteen sixties and although they didn't have motion pictures than they did have taxi and it felt close to the closest to that medium so And I mean then. There's the practical reasons of in terms of the way. It looked it as they say falls off. The truck looks pretty close to how you want it to look so even though on paper it is more expensive or it is more complicated. It also needs needs less done to it later so aunts and there's another reason which is you know I can't. He uses an argument other than I find. I for many re film more emotional Israel for me for me. It is more not always not all the time not everything but like there is something about being on the set that shooting foam. But it's different it is different isn't actor. It feels different when they when they see. Check the gate something different right When you hear the film film rolling it you experience it as being on stage young? I'm sure because you know everybody's on their their toes loose Yup 'cause they have to be on their toes. You don't have an endless amount of digital Capacity so you can shoot something over and over and over again when you roll film it matters it matters. That's right it doesn't it's not. It's not the feeling that there's not that feeling of just analysts Endless Time Yup which idea of endless time is an illusion? Any Way Day on digital but Yeah with film. It's it's definitely feels more like that. And you know my DP. WHO's wonderful full? Yeah you're so who's shots. Just stunning movies for him. He was I mean the other well. He's he's barely worked on digital. He's like why wouldn't you shoot it on film. I was like Oh well welcome this is we now. We don't news like what. Yeah but he's French and he he works I mean he he shut Luca Guadagnino I am love and he works with. Olivia asked say us. I mean it's it's called the film we should say okay well elsewhere so yeah no but it but it was very. You're making a painting you use paint. Yes yes that's right But it ah but in any case. And he's very he's very that's that's that's the that is he understood stood that medium and you know it's funny to people say things like Now everybody's like Oh. It's so much harder to light. It's so much harder to do this. I'm like not if you know how to do it. I mean yeah they did. They did make movies somehow right now. They made movies. Like I want to ask you about this. Because it's a favorite brief encounter. Oh Oh my God. Could there be better movie. Could there be a more beautiful beautifully. Shot I know beautifully acted. Oh my God I love that movie so much also you know I was just speaking about briefing counter the other day and how much I love it and you know one thing. That's striking to me. Briefing counter. Talk is made by David. Lean and when you think of like be masculine filmmaking kid think of David Lean I mean he could really shoot desert's like you know like he was a big filmmaker and brief encounters so perfectly dictate human size and it's amazing to me that that I mean that truth that he finds in the epic he also finds lines in the intimate and I just I mean that's why he's such a great artist to me obviously but he I don't know I just just at. There's something emotional to me about like the the man who paints on the biggest canvas also took that talent to make the story. Yeah I mean I also just that you fall you fall in love with her and them but you fall in love with her. Trevor Howard Celia Johnson. She was married to a Muslim. She or is. She was an todd and Ann. Todd was passionate friends. Yes yes that's right uh-huh yeah passionate friends also very beautiful and painful But Yeah love.

"It but I had a very emotional moment actually with Josh Safdie at the critics choice awards. WHO's one half of the SAFDIE brothers Josh and Benny and I've known Josh and Benny since I was twenty one We met at South by southwest. They had a short film film. I had a tiny little contribution to movie giovane movie and we met we both still in school and and we realize we're both. We were both lived in New York and we became really good friends. We were roommates for awhile. I left on my couch like I mean very. We snuck into New York from last. Because they you know there were great movie makers there that we wanted to be and so anyway. We had this very emotional moment. Where like someone's like can I get a picture of you together and they usually? Yeah Music Roommate's like you know it's very so I'm in. It was a very special moment. And I think the thing for me about And those filmmakers in those films and it was It was Josh Penny Saftey but it was also I met Barry Jenkins and then time because he had made medicine for melancholy. An errand cats and reiver's so young and the dupe loss brothers. Andrew Pajamas Ski I loved the work they were making. We all took the work we were doing very seriously and I feel like as much as young artists need anything they need a community to bounce stuff absolutely. Because that's it that's as important as any other more I think marker you can you can have the dip further your career. But I don't think anyone does anything in isolation so to have a group of people that you know you. Could you know. Go to the movies as you all these different things or you all hate the same thing so you bond over that like you have someone to talk about the medium with on a consistent basis. Listen what you're trying out and anyway and it's very meaningful to me that like you know. Now we're in our mid thirties. And I can NC Josh Safdie at an award show I know well. They're riding the crest of the wave with the uncut gems season and which is a hell of a film. I loved it. I sat at telluride tonight. We saw him the the Verna Herzog and I was like back it blew ever wants lid off. I felt like fun and then tire theater with like what in the world is this and I was just delighted alighted the whole time I was also I mean I just had a sandler was incredible. I thought their filmmaking was just amazing and bananas and actually they where shooting uncut gems at the same time that I was shooting little women so josh and I were on the phone when they were in the casino That they shoot in with Julia places the Bat and all that and he was like yeah. We're shooting in a Casino Darius in their league and then I was like lakes in the rural Massachusetts and hey anyway I loved it. I thought it was a to me. It was the culmination of so much of the work that they've been I'm doing and and and and they're kind of particular filmmaking and it was It was just really exciting to see it and to see it with like no. Oh I had no idea what it was going to be. That's a fun of seeing things like at telluride which I see you guys at I love telluride I I just love it. It's what's special festival you know what's crazy is in looking it all of your films Greenberg is twenty ten down. I know so we we met you ten years ago. I know the how in the actual like I know. Where does it where does and of course my dad and I always joke about overnight sensation I think in the world? Yes you look and you go overnight for ten years yes it's true now it's crazy. No it's it's crazy I don't know I mean you know it's I. It's funny also because my my partner Noah who directed Greenberg Lindburg but Noah Baumbach some guys some guys you know. He's he's fifty and he's been making movies since he was twenty four. You're twenty five and he's making movies for twenty five years. He's made ten narrative films in that time and he and I. It was just the sort of realization relation with the did a retrospective at metro graph and And that's a body of work for twenty five years of filmmaking. And that's you know it's one of the wonderful things about filmmaking is that it's it's difficult takes long time time. which is wonderful because it's he? It's not like Tetris. You're never gonNA get so good at it. Then it gets boring like it's only ever going to be hard. Yeah there's not another speed it comes that it's just hard and it's hard on a new way I mean Tetris does eventually pretty hard. But like I got disturbingly family. Good at Tetris at one point But I that thing of you know even if you make movies your whole life life you only get a handful like an each movie you make. It's the only time you're gonNA make that one and it makes it very vivid. What you're doing while you're doing it and like I really always are human? I use when I'm up against it with something and I'm like I'm only going to make this movie once so I wanted to be right So give me the ball gowns. I heard her off your who imparted this. The nuggets not to me personally but I read it if you make if you shoot a film for sixty days fairly. I am vicious movie. And you make one compromise every day sixty compromises in your movie. Yeah and I mean that. That's a a AH kind of stark way of looking at it but yes it sort of underscores what you just said right now. The people I ah some observer might say why she being so stubborn about this way. What's the big deal? I know right then you have to fight for your belief leave for your vision. Yeah and also. You're the only one that knows. I mean you bring everyone into it and and an and ideally you have a team around you. And I had such an amazing group of artists with me on both ladybird and little women and that ideally and hopefully they're all kind of dreaming the same dream you are so that you know what the thing is before it exists. But like you've got to fight for it because it's not I mean no one will ever care as much as you so you have to. There's no cavalry coming and you're the one who has to be your own cavalry and that's I used to think that directors had a certain kind of personality and that's it's what made them directors and then. I realized that making movies gives you that personnel. That it's a it's a reverse osmosis in a way the yeah. Ah No actually no made a documentary Where you talk to Brian? DEPALMA is close friends with them. which is I I suppose not included in the ten narrative films but The eleventh But he brian said something at the end. which just I All all filmmaking is. It's just a record of your mistakes. Wow Record of everything you got wrong man. Oh that's a totally fatalistic. Wow is it but but I know what he means. He's saying it's a hard hard one you said to me when you publish the first movie guide all you can see his mistake. People were coming over me all my gosh all he you could see. Wow think like he was eighteen when he first published that Book Almighty particulars. But you know when you learn how young the beetles are what. I can't imagine making a film especially for the first time because you know my mom always says once you finish building a house you you know how to build a house right you know. I can't imagine you finish lady bird you go cool. I'm ready to make a movie now. Oh Yeah it's true the things that and also you only learn there is no one applicable lesson kept. I think on Lady Bird I was even kept looking for the one lesson and as soon as you think you have the one lesson you learn the op like like sort of like I see the thing to always do is to make sure you have them do it. You know really fast and or you know and then you'll get to the cutting.

"Harvey Buddy I'm Leonard Maltin Jesse Molten. And you're listening to Maltin on movies. There's a little echo in this room. Isn't there Laura sitting actually on a giant stage in the middle of Iceland or not. I like that to be true. But it's one of those workspace places and so it sounds a little different than usual usual. That's why but if it sounds different than last weeks or next week. That's because we have Greta Gerwig here today right. I wasn't there last week and I know be there next week. Yeah I know upsetting setting but one time. I'm glad I'm here. I glad to hear too. I'm really glad that I got to watch you. You sitting at that table with Sir Sharon and yes amy basket hell everybody yeah exactly critics choice fixture. There was like the girl party it was beanie came over. I don't know if you saw that moment. A lot of what was it was very imperfect perch to just watch the crazy all around at at one point when Nicole Kidman walked past us. Oh Yeah and They were counting down because nobody would sit down. The thing about these awards type dinner situations is that no one in cares at the dinner because they just don't Wanna see each other right so excited to get to hang out that when the actual TV bit is happening and those bless those poor or managers like they just can't like please the duck. I know and are going to be the one who yells at Nicole Kidman. 'cause I'm not no. I know everybody I know. Well she can do what she wants. She's standing there going. That's fine I always feel like it's funny will. It's true the Golden Globes and true the critics choice that is True Academy Awards which we've been to one is That that Matt the at the I do sometimes feel like there is a mad dash to the seats though which is sort of like. It's almost like the teachers coming in and I was doing it. He was sitting here. Nicole Kidman did it look still standing almost childlike No one did it. schoolday flashback it. Is I work spirit. Awards every year talent and over like the cool kids smoking corner. Oh yeah all standing there and evidently Ashley own like forty miles away going. She's Taco you guys. I know she is really cool. She's she's intimidating very Especially in the cool kid smoking corner via just I can't but she's like a city cage group in New York she's she's she's got away. Yeah Yeah now you grew up in Sacramento. I did I did not grow up an exam. Not I'm not a city Sonic Sacramento. I'm exotic Louis. Normal yeah I mean I do truly feel that yeah I grew up in Sacramento. And what impelled you to go to New York go to school well I mean there is a lot of reasons I I. I had wanted to move to New York from the the time I was very young. I had a formative trip to New York when I was five and then another one when I was eight but the I wanNA five I went to go see a lot of Broadway shows other ones that go see. Forty Second Street with Jerry sure and I saw it was thanked teen eighty nine ninety. You know I saw a gypsy with time. Daily style I saw I saw cats cats both in New York and in and in the Winter Garden Theatre in in London but in any case they had this idea of New York I had an idea of New York had an idea of like wanting to get back there and I think I mean particularly forty second street from me because it was actually one of the last giant tap choruses. They didn't of that stretch of shows and it was just I I think for to be a five year old kid to see something like that was d- it was genuinely life changing so I always had that in the back of my head so then I I applied for schools. I was like I WANNA go to New York City so What I applied to Nyu as an actor? And I put to juilliard as an actor and I didn't get it but I- i- Barnard was Where I went to school women's College at Colombia and I was I hadn't known about it until I went to New York to actually audition for Nyu for theatre school and my dad said. Why don't we go look at Barnard and I was like no and then I got their noses love it here so then I kind of went all out and said I really go to this school and I was very lucky they let me in and then it was kind of life changing but I yeah I wanted? I went to New York for college and I have never left Except for to come to La occasionally and did you feel you fit in. Yes yes I mean. I felt like I felt like I fit in. Insofar as it was a bunch of people who didn't fit in anywhere else gonNA found their place and I just loved all those women didn't like I just they were all just so smart and cool and interesting and weird and I just was like oh no I want to be we just like them and then and then I it was like I found the group that did that. I didn't know I had well that's that's another life changing. Oh my God experience it was everything also I think because I was so I was always pretty passionate in an intense one. I was a kid like I loved things Li and I wanted to you know I had trouble not taking everything quite seriously. Louis and the hallmark. I think of most teenagers coolness is not caring. Yeah and all I did was care and I couldn't figure out how to not care and and then when I got to Barnard I just met all these people who you even. If it wasn't the same thing I was interested in like. Oh one of the girls in my hall is is she was she was astrophysics. It was a thing and computer. You computer hacking she'd hacked her boyfriend was that Syracuse and she'd hacked every email account he had which I was like. I think that the illegal but also amazing that you know how to do this like it was that level of just total engagement. That was new to me to be around people who were. That's just like just deeply into what they were doing. Well that's that's one of the things you capture so beautifully flee in lady bird is is that intensity of emotion yes teenagers feel and it's very real to them. Yes and you tapped into the. You're still young woman but still you have to be in touch with that younger self in order to write and direct. You know something. Actually well I think you know it's funny because we'll obviously the two films I've written and Directed Lady Bird and little women women I also equally felt that Lewis male caught who actually wrote Little Women in her mid thirties and published when she was thirty six which this is my age which felt sort of faded She also had a really clear line to that The those intense feelings and those kind of wild ambitious dreams actually one of my favorite chapters and little little women is Castles in the sky. And it's just them talking about stuff they want in the future and it's amazing and that's when they you you know they they lay out all their dreams and I was and it was willing. I grew up with his book. I loved this book but then it wasn't until I regretted that I was like she gives an entire chapter girl saying what they want in the nineteenth century and it reminded me of you know the work work eight already done writing lady bird like it reminded me of myself in the best way which you know and I it's just amazing to me how much As much as things change that that sort of that passion of us that's why you can read it and be like oh it's simply. We didn't advance dance beyond ourselves. It's everyone's been saying the same thing but because it's so obviously true that story and the way she set it out in the way she wrote it is still so fresh and no and I mean it's really. That was was the thing when I reread the book that I And I had read it since it was fifteen and then I read it thirty.

"Well no I you know it's interesting Meryl Streep said this and I've quoted it because it's really smart because she's actually one of the smartest people I've met not not just period. She's she's just so smart but she said them she said that The one of the reasons that there were so many great characters for women at that time. mm-hmm was that There is no real danger that she's going to take his job so if she's not going to take his job she can. She can be as outrageous and say whatever she wants because we're not worried that she's got any of that money away and as soon as it becomes an issue shoe later than female characters change And I was like. Why are you that smart? I know it is it is it's great and and I and I think it it gets something very true and there's this great monologue in the film by Amy March which she talks about kind of the tough choices and sacrifices that women have to make and read that that was directly inspired by your conversation with Merrill. Just another thing I still from. Yes no no this. A scene where Amy March describes really the stakes of marriage for her that that that would came directly out of a conversation precision with Merrill who who said this is what you have to make the audience understand and And also for me because of the character of amy who I loved it gave amy context that she didn't have before and I think amy has been a a misunderstood understood character and I felt that in some ways I wanted her to get some real estate as an adult woman to explain. Why why she thinks Sushi things before we go? I have to also say congratulations. To your Hubby Noah Baumbach. He's nominated for best original screenplay. Replay for marriage story also in contention for best picture. What's it like having competing films vying for best? Pictures are a little bit of friendly competition. honestly. There's just so much kind of amazed joy. At home I'd say It was a surreal moment when we both Looks at our phones yesterday morning. we can mutually had a moment of legs tend to face the music eh but then but then it was just I mean it was extraordinary. We were just totally ecstatic. And honestly what am I. Don't even know how to express how amazing it is because it is you know I.

This time around. She's being hailed for her masterful. reimagined action of Louisa May alcott's beloved novel Novel Little Women which has received six Oscar nominations including for best picture and best adapted screenplay for Greta Gerwig and today.

"Today InFocus stories. We made this episode back in in March when Greta Thornburg school strike was just starting to make waves around the world. It was incredibly exciting that we were able to include Greta herself on our all podcast when she was interviewed by The Guardian Global Environment editor Jonathan Watts about how it all began. Be sure to stick around to the end of the episode where we explore. What the impeach halts but Greta and for the strikes when I was maybe seven years old when I before I I learnt and understood climate change on what was happening with the environment I I saw the world? Nature's it's just something that was going to be there last summer age fifteen. Greta Timberg skipped classes and sat down on the cobblestones outside the Swedish parliament with a hand painted banner in the first school. Strike the climate action. She cut a lonely figure but uh-huh activism was quickly contagious before long she'd been joined by thousands of others and found herself speaking in front of world leaders at the UN and Davos adults. Keep saying we owe it to the young people to give them hope. But I don't want your hope I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic eight months later and now sixteen this teenager with her trademark plants has become. I'm a role model to children and adults across the world. Her Movement has spread to seventy one countries including here in the U. K.. What tomorrow children will walk out of school school for a second climate? Strive to millions including me to make is an absolute inspiration but from some. She's attracted anger and hate today. We're incredibly lucky to be able to bring you an interview with gratitude.

I've been here also plan in New Year's game it's called GonNa take my horse to the old laying sign. We were going to be joined this time by A. Ah with Jesse what happened here. This is the second week in a row. This is not an accident. I T's up last week so a few so coming now. In on January seven is a new book by Cory Asbury a wreck love and he of course is a songwriter of reckless glove. He sort of been on a sabbatical this year. But we talked. We talked a few weeks ago about his book. And it's it's a devotional it's very good and so we're we're doing. I'm doing an interview about the book. But we start joking around and we are having a lot of fun because as listeners know he has sparked a lot of dialogue on this conversation about casual azules dining and the perks of casual dining restaurants. He is the holder of a chick-fil-a black card so low so just for a little context and he was playing a chick-fil-a corporate event and instead of an honorarium instead of taking payment for this he told me that he asked the good folks at chick-fil-a corporate the headquarters if he could have chick-fil-a black card which would entitle him to have free Chick-fil-a for for life. All you do is show this car to get as much much chick-fil-a as you want. We start talking about that on on our podcast. In how the you know the dream scenario for US would be to get or a Chili's lease a quivalent of that guard. The good folks at Chili's heard this and delivered to not only Chandler got some Chili Swag but he also so has what color is your card Chandler. It's red red native metal right. Yeah yeah yeah extremely rare talent. It'll it could be a one of what it could be gory. I've talked about his book. And I I bring up the CHICK-FIL-A card and how you know it's helped us here the the chilies car for Chandler. And he told me about the drama between him and Chick-fil-a and how they changed the basically the what he was entitled to with his Blackheart. And it's it was a game changer. Somehow I don't know if I'm supposed to say this or not but this inquiry on today somehow AAA has gotten involved in this and show polay is courting him with free food to try to be an exclusive club holder for them so anyway. Doing the interview Corey and my Corey. Why don't you come on and we'll go hosts the show with with me and Hakko whole episode this morning I got an email from him and he has strep throat last week? We're SOSA prompts. On the Friday show he got sick. Had to text me last minute. Corey said he was willing to power through if we really needed him to. But I told them protect those pipes. My man protect those pipes is important. They are too important to churches around the country on Sunday mornings. We need those pipes crank out some more worship tunes for us. So Corey is is will not be joining US unfortunately but in the game that we're playing that he was that we wrote with the intention of plane there is sort of a hat tip to tyler. There's there there is it. Okay we're GONNA keep the hat tip but it's not gonNa make a lot of sense without that context so we're just going to but you know what there's the inaudible like I said we're not even starting on the rails today this all that I'm not bothering trying to make sense out of it. There's a game. It's it's going to involve part of Corey Story. You and instead of Corey. I suppose a listener. One of our listeners is going to be calling it instead and try to help for that. And they're GONNA have to hope for the best hope I have. Let's say an unusual amount of knowledge about fast casual dining chains. I would be surprised. Never AH listen between between the Popeye's chicken sandwich and you know get named dropped in county. It's been it's been a big big year for fast casual tiny we all about cash. Then I think we thought we were going to at the outset of twenty nineteen on my if we thought we were going to or then. We even want it to Tom. It'll be it's going to be a good we got it we got Greta gerwig coming up. We have the game coming up. Hollis coming up but CAN I. Can I talk to you as real quick before I don't want to Belabor this because we have so much content to get you and you had a really great conversation with Greta a growing tyler. I know we WANNA play pretty much in its entirety because it actually took place out of her pretty special location right. Yeah we we can get into that now but they but they were. The Studio is nice enough to fly me up to is in Concord Massachusetts which is where a little women obviously upset about the book and the movie and we had the conversation. Louisa Louisa May alcott's old home her like it's called the Orchid House now than where she was raised us where she wrote little women. It's where she set little women in her mind and it's where I interviewed a girl so lots of history between a famed interviewer talking to a beloved filmmaker through a classic novel.

"So it feels like we're at these curious moment right way there's always hope but also all these despair about the problem of climate change like on the one hand you have new reports all the time warning about the urgent need to swerve around world leaders being told you have to do more and really only some of them being convinced that message but on the other hand there is this unprecedented move but millions of people joining climate strikes around the world with Britain leading the pack think they hear us we will make them heroes been here before the twenty seven years ago. Canadian twelve year olds seven Suzuki gave pretty similar speech to the UN hello. I'm seventies Yuki speaking for ECO the environmental children's organization where a group of twelve and thirteen year olds trying to make a difference. She wasn't talking about climate change specifically the same themes are there. She's talking about Ping afraid to go into the sun and also mass extinction right and there's that same blunt accused the tree time that Greta uses like hey adult. Stop screwing it up for everyone. One younger than you parents should be able to comfort their children by saying everything's going to be all right. It's not the end of the world and we're and we're doing the best we can. Dan But I don't think you can say that to us anymore. Are we even on your list of priorities but how does a teenager to get to that point well. my parents are environmentalists and in the nineteen eighty s a lot of people were talking about environmental problems it was actually a very popular issue and even politicians and leaders were calling themselves. Environmentalists and greenies became became really worried about the environment so I started a club with my friends. Were in grade five. I was nine years old because their selves Echo the Environmental Children's organization innovation and we just started out by having meetings with tea and cookies. We do little fundraisers. We like to make jewelry into foul and raise money book sales. We also raised money to buy water filter for the pen and People Sarawak whose water was polluted because of logging. We're able to do that so this must have taken up like all of your time right yeah. We can't really ten years old but I mean what else are. We going to do a a lot of fun. We're doing these kinds of England actor. Few years. We heard about a huge meeting. That was gonNA take place in Rio de Janeiro. This was going to be a big gathering of heads of state the largest gathering of heads of state ever held they were going to talk about environment and development and really going to set the stage for the twenty first century and we thought thought wow you know there's going to be all these old men sitting around talking about our future so he's how we should go you know with not not too much knowledge about all of the INS and outs of that kind of conference so we fund raiser trae year we appeal out our community for a year to send five of a to real so in Nineteen ninety-two seven wins the Rio which was run by the UN Adad David Suzuki use these he's like noted Canadian environmentalist with He was speaking on the sidelines be started giving up. Hoffy speaking time to seven and other kids from club and after two weeks of the best we first of all became very practice at giving our message in each of us had a five minute speech that we were honing constantly and after two weeks we were invited to speak to the because someone had dropped out of the plenary session so we actually able to rush to the UN and and I was able to give my speech what you do makes me cry at night you grown up so you love us but I challenge you. Please make AAC your actions. Reflect your words. Thank you so you weren't afraid or you didn't feel that pressure in a in a negative way. You just felt steely. I guess absolutely I look back at that beat beat those captured and I can't believe it but I remember feeling so sure of myself and I knew that this was this was the moment that I'd be waiting emporer. I would go ready. I did not feel any pressure or any fear. I just knew exactly what I had to do. I was ready. I guess how much of what was animating mating you at that time was a quite gripping anxiety about the future. Oh yes absolutely I was. I mean when I said in my speech what you do you make me cry at night that was not exaggeration was very sensitive child. I cared deeply about animals and plants. You know kids love Obama the adore animals and as we get older you know we lose that kind of passionate love because we realized that the world is full of sadness. The world is full of grace and not just black and white so we we we have to take care of our families. Eventually we assume responsibilities and so we lose that kind of sensitivity when it comes to injustice and caring for the Earth so the theory goes I guess that being charged gives you these extra license to speak about the state of the punt because obviously they're the ones who have to live on it and just generally the kids are most sensitive live to injustice and it can really get under the skin yeah also you would think that being so young would protect you from having to do too many personal attacks but seven and Greta Greta have both copped it from conservative voices in the media. The climate hysteria movement is not about science. If it were about science it would be led by scientists interests rather than by politicians and the mentally ill Swedish child who is being exploited by herons and by the International. Where is the mass extinction. I I want to know what the everything she said is a lie day. Queues been lied to. She has been terrified. Child abuse reports now in Europe where kids are getting anti anxiety the medication. They believe they're going to die. She is the Greta Effects. He's causing and instilling fear in millions of kids around the world. I heard some people now shine consoles her meltdown speech to the United Nations climate event. We will not let you get away with is waking up and you don't find that Schilling and the attacks that I am seeing I mean they are just taking you know I mean when I met David. Hog this summer are he's one of the Parkland Florida student survivors of the shooting last year and one of the founders of the march for our lives in Washington you know he he was still of course traumatized by the violence but almost equally seems like he was traumatized traumatized by the attacks on his person through social media. people saying that he didn't exist that he was an actor that he was paid. You know these kinds of Those kinds of attacks hurt so much that adults would have that response to children who survived a school shooting. I guess you know do you worry about Greta tune bug in being on the receiving end of this yeah. I I worry about her. Of course you know. I think we all have to worry about Greta. I mean she's already put ourselves out there so incredibly and she's delighted deal adding a response to all these trolls is just amazing. I mean she's dealing with it so well. She's just calling it out. She says wow they're scared. They're afraid of the a young girl so the most interesting thing about talking to seven that I really didn't expect this disappointment right. Basically it springs from this idea that her generation. She's the nine now screwed up. I mean we failed. We we have the problem. Get so much worth earth and so much more difficult for us to address. We did not act after real. How do you explain that failure like. Why would you say that that first attempt at pushed it. I guess you are on the crest of styled. I think that's the question I think that's very important analysis that has to happen happen right now because I feel that there's a real parallel to where we are today and where we were thirty years ago twenty seven years ago we were here were ready. We wanted change. There were people. who were you know everybody was on board? It seems and then we went in the absolute opposite visit direction in the nineties and the two thousand I mean we had the rise of yes we had the rise of the anti-globalization movement and but the the conversation was distracted distracted and while we weren't paying attention because everybody we thought everybody had signed off you know maybe that's why we went in we we. He went opposite way so I think this time. I don't think there's GonNa be a moment where we're we can't keep on protesting where we can't ah on holding our politicians feet to the fire because it's GonNa be hard and it's going to be very hard to achieve the forty five percent percent emissions reduction in less than eleven years. It's going to be very hard for us to achieve a completely carbon neutral nee society by twenty fifty. It's going to be very unpopular is gonna be really hard and we're not going to be able to let off the pressure and that's one of the things that I think we have to really kind of realized from last time and make sure it doesn't change this time. I don't think it's any one group of peoples failure but collectively me we have failed we have failed as a species to make a collective move to stop climate change and we cannot afford to make the take so basically they underestimated the size of the task last time yeah and the strength of the fossil fuel lobby in resisting calls for Change. She also also has this idea that one of the missing pieces of the puzzle then and now is the voice of mothers. This is something that I think has not truly being harnessed yet or or I should rather. I should say unleashed is the power and the passion of parents and especially of mother. You know you think about how much you love your child child or how much mothers love their their child. I mean we would not only die for our children. We would kill for our children and so we're now in a situation where there are entire social infrastructure as human beings is diminishing the options of our children in the future.

"Is about to change very dramatically. If we don't change course very dramatically the sign says we need to do that immediately and the science says that something like all of civilization is at stake if we don't and I look at the world and I see nobody acting as though that's the case and I'm confused and I'm frustrated and I'm angry and I want you to know what I know about the scale of the crisis because I can't understand if you did understand it how you would be doing anything but what I'm doing which is devoting my entire life to this challenge Enj- David. You've met with Greta you talk to her in person. I wonder how is she handling all of this insane attention for her voyage across the Atlantic Meeting Barack Obama you know going to the UN to be the sort of marquee speaker of this climate summit how how does that weigh on a sixteen year old like her. I mean it seems to me like she's tired and it's been a really crazy couple of weeks for her. I think she feels gratified. That all of these people are out with her sort of in speaking in unison about the urgency of crisis but I don't think it's something that she relishes in the one on one interview. I think it was easier for her to kind of focus and have a direct exchange that sort of impression I had of her then was that she was the most teenager like that. I've seen her are in any context. She was self deprecating. She made a few cracks about other people in the room and that kind of thing which is not something I've seen from her in any public look statements but I think that you see the speech that she gave at the UN during the climate summit someone who is a bit being pushed to sort of breaking point. I mean for the first time she was speaking in much more heated tones much more emotionally. I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on on the other side of the ocean yet. You all come to US young people for hope. How dare you you have stolen stolen my dreams in my childhood with your empty words yet. I'm one of the ones people are suffering.

"This was a real banner week for President Donald Trump he spent most of it denying buying any wrongdoing then released a White House record of himself doing something that looked quite wrong then he casually praised how in another time the people who complained about his wrongdoing might have been executed with all the whistleblowing and impeachment talk. It's easy to forget that the president also Oh made fun of a sixteen year old girl this week we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and of each economic growth. How dare you responding to a tweet that contained a long clip clip of that speech. President trump seemingly locked tune burke. He tweeted the following. He said she seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful for future so nice to see the president did and it wasn't just him. Laura Ingraham at Fox News compared Greta Timberg two children of the corn. I can't wait for Stephen King. Sequel children of the climate and guests on another Fox News show just well but none none of that matters because the climate hysteria movement is not about science. If it were about science it would be led by scientists rather than by politicians and the mentally ill Swedish this child who is being exploited by parents and by the international so if you a person who doesn't make fun of children find yourself wondering what could make all of these grown people want to dunk on a kid David Wallace Wells has a theory. She is the most powerful teenager living on the planet today. David wrote about Glenda for a New York magazine where he's an editor. She's a Swedish teenager. She's sixteen years old last August. When she was is just fifteen. She decided to start a climate strike outside the Swedish parliament. I sit here every Friday. I am not a scientist. I don't have the proper education I'm only a messenger and in relatively short order became one of the the faces of a kind of exploding global movement of teens specifically but sort of young people more generally protesting in various sways the inaction of the global community of business people and Policy Leaders in combating what this generation Asian I think rightly sees as the existential challenge of climate change. How does this become her mission in life so early in life. Basically Greta came home from school having learned about climate change at the age the eight or nine they showed us films and pictures and I just I just thought it was very worrying. I was very scared of it. I I saw that it was very strange that there was such an existential threat that would send our existence and I'll civilization and yet that wasn't awesome first priority and starting at about age eleven. Greta fell into a deep depression. I stopped talking and I stopped eating in two months. I lost about ten kilos weight later on. I was diagnosed with aspects of syndrome mm-hmm. OCD selective news and a family friend who I spoke to a few weeks ago told me that her father who is a sort of close. The presence in her life nursed her back to health the person said one Yuki at a time so that was just a few years ago I mean but it was a period of time that was was protracted enough that it actually at least according to Greta had a meaningful impact on her physical health. I mean one of the things that really makes her. Stand out is that while she is sixteen she actually looks quite a bit younger than that and I think that's one of the keys to her power a rhetorical powers that she's speaking with the wisdom of an informed teenager but sort of through the figure of a wise child that makes him different that makes you think differently and especially in such a big crisis like this when we need to think outside the folks we need to think outside our current system they we need people who think outside the box and who aren't like everyone else she basically wasn't an real activist until last August when she started school strike in in Stockholm and at the time you know she was fifteen. She basically didn't have any friends. She was unhappy. She felt socially isolated uncomfortable around other people and it really was a kind kind of crusade that she was launching the kind of thing that you know occasionally you see on social media somebody making a kind of noble protests but you don't necessarily assume that it's going going to amount to much and this really took off in. December she was giving a speech at a UN climate climate conference that sort of went especially viral the year two thousand and seventy eight. I will celebrate my seventy fifth birthday. If I have children maybe they will spend the day with me. Maybe they will ask me about you. Maybe they will ask why you didn't do anything while there still was time to act you say you love your children above all else and yet you're stealing their their future in front of their very is until you start focusing on what needs to be done rather than what is politically logistically possible there is no hope and by March she had led a global climate strike in which about one and a half million people marched in the streets around the world everywhere from Africa to Asia to the US and all throughout Europe. She just turned sixteen of course she wasn't done. She continued attended speaking. She gave a series of speeches she gave one notable one at Davos but her profile seem to like move up an additional notch beyond just the a person who had inspired a global school strike numbering in the millions when she announced that she would be coming to this. UN Summit in New York and that she would be doing so by boat. I might feel seasick and it's not going to be comfortable but that I can live with and if it's really hard I just have to think thank me for two weeks. Then I can go back to as usual showed people on the left that some of these choices that we thought were impossible to make where or at least for some people like her possible to make that one could travel across the Atlantic without imposing a carbon footprint on the world it also really irritated people on the right who who took it as a kind of trolling and took that as the opportunity to really cut into her none of the other moments in her trajectory really produced much pushback and the boat trip really changed that and made her kind of lightning rod for both sides of the of the issue and I think that's ultimately only elevated her stature more. I think she is being manipulated. I think she's been exploited. I think she's being pushed to the forefront of a very misanthropic depressing form of the politics of fear. I think that's bad for her because we know that she is rather mentally franchise a child y'all go and I think it's bad for political debate because the end result is that anyone raises any criticisms of this campaign is shouted routed down as someone who hates children and who hates Greta them book. It's become one of the themes of this conversation that she is being stage managed by people around her in general my experience with those people has been there just protective over her because she's quite fragile. She's uncomfortable in crowds. She is not really happy being the center of attention in general and and while she feels that there's sort of an urgent need to continue speaking. It's not easy for her and again. She's just a teenager. I think it's easy to look at a teenager who struck a chord it and like the march for our lives comes to mind as well and say like Oh these kids are smart and he speaks truth to power and they're good social media and they built an audience but it sounds sounds like that's not quite the case with Greta is it is it just her words and her image that so struck a chord with the entire planet in it or is it some sort of greater social media savvy and media prowess or something like that well. She actually was inspired by the Parkland kids. That's why she went out on strike for the first time so there is a kind of a continuity there it started with a couple of us in the United States and Hughes to go to school because fiscal shootings and then someone I knew said what if silver did that before. I also do think that she is pretty savvy. On Social Media I think almost anyone as a teenager now is but she wrote a series of posts about her own disabilities and the way that they were being used to target her among right wing critics that was also. I think quite powerful but in general I think that those factors are less central to understanding exactly what's happening here. Then the simple fact that at the science of climate change is terrifying and there are those people who are sort of activists and advocates who take that science nine seriously and talk about it in urgent honest terms but they're also they're activists and so to the world. They seem like you know maybe a little hysterical Americal. Maybe a little alarmist. Greta is so cool. Why are we not reducing our emissions. Why are they in fact still increasing our we knowingly causing mass extension. Are We evil. No of course not people keep doing what they do because the vast majority doesn't have a clue about the actual the consequences of our everyday life her affect is always so flat and direct that it really does seem like she's just presenting doing the incredibly harrowing facts of the matter to the public and I think there's something powerful about that. I think that that is the scale of the the crisis that we're facing and just being direct about. It is incredibly eye. Opening does Greta any policy proposals. Did she endorse any particular ideas that the UN this week I think for the most part she's done incredibly savvy. Job Of avoiding making particular policy asks you know in the climate world once you get into particular agendas or particular programs. They're always going to be some people who have objections. Do you think you're being unreasonable. I think you're focusing on the wrong thing. At the moment you know two big areas of disagreement on the climate world are about the fate of nuclear power and of of what's called carbon capture technology which could allow us to take carbon out of the atmosphere but which activists see as sort of moral hazard because it'll encourage fossil fuel businesses to keep operating you know she hasn't taken a position on those things exactly.
