As Brexit looms, the U.K.'s Conservative Party fights for survival
"Continue. Now today's newspapers on the globalist joining me is Phil Clarke professor of International Politics at Says University of London Hello Fil. A morning ever good to have you although I'm slightly baffled why you've chosen an article in the Daily Express Kickoff newspaper review. I. Know We live in Unusual Times And Fill. It might have come to that point where the the Daily Express is getting this morning at basically something that I think we've suspected in the UK for Awhile which is. The Conservative Party is going gangbusters to try to get a no deal brexit I think this has been building for a while at the UK has been playing a I really dangerous game of brinkmanship with the the European Union and today the Dow expresses reporting that. Bicycle UK saying that they will not toe the line on one of the issues. Absolute stipulations over the Brexit negotiations, which is that the British government cannot. Provide massive subsidies to be British companies. And I must sign up to an agreement with the EU on. Labor and environmental standards. These are the sorts of things that the EU is really worried about that. That basically that the government is going to tilt the tried situation. So heavily towards British companies that they're to have this completely free wheeling lack of regulation, which will allow British companies to violate anything that looks like a great international standards on Labour and environmental. Issues, and this is the kind of thing that really does push these brexit tokes right to the edge, and so it does look like we're getting closer to a what I think disastrous no deal Nigel brexit indeed I mean the the whole of the weekends newspapers was saying UK's ready to walk away from brexit trade talks. You case chop stocks trail in recovery as fears over Brexit 'cause invested jitters PM threatens deal Brexit and even over the Weekend we heard this is a European Union senior meeting in a couple of weeks time in Germany brexit will not even be on the agenda. I. Wonder whether this isn't just the the the brinkmanship that is absolutely necessary although being paid by two sides. One of which knows what it's doing and the other one is seeming that's an eleventh hour agreement can be made, but that's not how this thing works because it's too complicated isn't it? I think so and and the noises coming out of Brussels and this is part of the Daily Express Pace. This morning is that the European Union seems to be preparing for Nigel Brexit as well This is the first time that we've seen such a a stock statement by Michel Barnier the negotiated that this is what this might come. Up until now, the you have basically talked about the the no deal option as completely off the table as an absolute impossibility will that the EU tone on this say seems to be changing I think a real sense that perhaps when it boils down to it, this is what the Johnson government really wants that they want an ideal brexit have for all of the talk of doing deals. The last few years, what they want is this completely. Unregulated economic situation that Nigel Brexit a would deliver an and then that's the kind of thing that really fits with the ideology of of this British government at the moment. So it it does seem like the no deal possibility is is looming ever-larger. What's interesting though is, of course, a lot of people are talking better called. Brevard it popped up in the evening standard last week and it's floating around in Lamont at the moment which is. The moment when you have that perfect storm of Brexit and Covid, and there's a suggestion that because of covid the the brexit negotiations could actually be forced into agreement because you have a bigger fire to fight. So sort of clears your head when it comes to the other stuff. Yes I've also seen these reports of and this is much more favorable rating I guess on the current situation I think unfortunately, there's a more negative reading of this which is that. Covert may provide exactly the kind of covid the Tories want for the no deal brexit that. The undoubted economic disaster that would come from an ideal brexit can be covered by the narrative that look you know we were heading towards this. Economic Wonderland if only the BREXIT had allowed us at the kind of thing that we were looking for but but cove got in the way and completely undercuts at grand plans and and so I think the other narrative is that covert is giving the Tories. The kind of cow die wants to get to this completely unregulated brexit scenario that I think many many members of the Tory party wants at the moment CICADA making this worse. I. Think.
Steve Bannon's arrest has tertiary ties to video games
"Former thirty eight studios CEO curt. Schilling was involved in the build a wall pack. The thing that just led to former Donald Trump advisor, steve bannon getting arrested. This is just a weird tangentially related to video games news story that is just so strange and it also kind of goes to show that if curt schilling is involved in a company, that's probably a good reason to not invest any money. So for the. Non Video game side of the story former President Donald Trump advisor Steve Bannon was arrested this morning for issues related to a crowdfunding campaign. He was involved with that was raising money to build a wall between Mexico and the United States of America. The campaign raised over twenty, five million dollars, but apparently, the money was being used for personal gain Audrey Strauss the acting us attorney for the southern district of New York said. The. Defendants defrauded hundreds of thousands of donors capitalizing on their interest and funding a border wall to raise millions of dollars under the false pretense that all of the money would be spent on construction while repeatedly assuring donors that Brian Cole fade the founder and public face of the We build the wall would not be paid a cent. The defendants secretly schemed to pass hundreds of thousands of dollars to coalfields, which he used to fund his lavish lifestyle. That quote comes from NPR story. Linked in the show notes. So that's the main part of it but the tangentially related video games side of it comes from Edward Isaac Dove Air From the Atlantic on twitter who wrote Crisco Bosch is the General Counsel of the build the wall pack that Steve Bannon was just arrested for being involved in as chairman. The advisory board includes Eric Prince Former Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo Sheriff David Clarke and former pitcher curt schilling curt schilling is predominantly known for being a pitcher in the MLB. I will always know him as the CEO of thirty eight studios, the developer that created kingdoms of Amour with investment funds from the State of Rhode Island, which he neglected to return when required, which ultimately doomed the developer and the kingdoms of Ahmir franchise though then might be making comeback soon, there's a, there's a remake rerelease on the way. It's really gross that money was being raised to build a wall which as near as I can tell is thankfully nowhere near fruition and it's totally unsurprising that it is all collapsing under the weight of its founders deciding to just try and keep the money for themselves. Rock steady responds to recent sexual harassment issues with kind of a weird public statement. The publication. The Guardian recently released a story about sexual harassment issues at develop a rock steady games and how the company had not taken proper action when women within the studio went directly to its leadership wants the article was published rock steady apparently began to take action internally and called a studio meeting but the developer also released kind of strange statement on twitter. Here's the statement in full working on. Our response to the recent news, we received the following unsolicited letter eight out of ten people that sign of the original two, thousand, eighteen letter or still rock steady. The following unedited letter below is from seven of those people. Please note that all involved do not wish to have their identity disclosed publicly under any circumstances. This statement is sent in representation of the current women at rock steady studios who were. Working at the studio in two thousand eighteen who signed a letter regarding issues being faced by female employees. The statement has in no way been asked for or influenced by management or anyone else. This is solely the voices of those involved who are still currently employed by rock steady. We all feel the need to respond to this and to reflect what actually happened at the time and how this has been. Handled since recently, an article was posted in the Guardian regarding this letter, which was sent to the studio heads and HR in two thousand eighteen in addition to multiple other accusations. In this article, we feel that the anonymous source or sources attempted to speak on behalf of all women at rock steady, and we do not feel that this article is a fair representation of us the events at the time or. Since the letter was received when the letter was received by the studio immediate action was taken, which resulted in a series of meetings with the women of the studio to allow us a safe space to talk about any issues we were facing figuring out strategies to resolve these issues and what the studio could do going forward continued efforts have been made to ensure that we have a voice within our. Working, within the studio ranging from involvement, specifically with how our characters are represented to workshops to help build self-confidence within male dominated industries. Throughout all of this, a firm promise has been made that there always an open forum for us to speak out net issues would be addressed with seriousness none of the current female employees at the studio who are involved with the letter were contacted about this letter being released. To the media until we were informed by the studio at the time of working through the original letter with the studio, we were assured that this would be kept as a private matter. As this was what we had collectively requested we feel that our privacy and witches have been disregarded and a private matter has been made public. This has left us feeling that we have been violated by the source or. Sources as it was kept private for personal reasons, twelve involve not to industry secrecy. We would like to conclude this statement reaffirming the importance of any minority within the games industry to speak up and four studios to take seriously as rock steady did at the time and continues to do any allegations being brought forward to work towards creating safe environments for us to work in so that we can make games.
Ballot Drop Boxes Gain Popularity As An Alternative To In-Person And Mail-In Voting
"Worried about casting their ballots in person this November because of the pandemic. They are also worried that mail in ballots could be misplaced or delayed on alternative that is gaining popularity and also attracting controversy is drop boxes where voters can deposit their absentee ballots to be collected by election officials. NPR's Pam Fessler reports. A steady stream of voters in Detroit, Michigan last week approached a red, white and blue metal box right outside the city's main election office. The box looked a little like a high tech trash can or recycling bin. Instead, it was one of several 100 ballot drop boxes located across the state. More than a 1,000,000 Michigan voters decided to cast absentee ballots in the primary rather than go to the polls, But many like Elizabeth Dandridge didn't want account on the post office to deliver those ballots. I want to be sure that it was collected in the box. Sometimes the males delay I'm waiting on a package is what people have sent me over to weeks to go, and they haven't come. And it's a growing concern is the U. S. Prepares for a flood of absentee and mail in voting in November. Many election officials are encouraging voters to use Dropbox is instead to make sure their ballots don't arrive too late to be counted. That's already happened to tens of thousands of ballots this year. Connecticut's using 200 new drop boxes in tomorrow's primary. Secretary of State Denise Merrill admits the state was somewhat overwhelmed by a surgeon requests for mail in ballots and even a week ago, local election offices were still trying to fill those requests. There's a lot of confusion just the moment about when the ballots got mailed to whom When they're going to arrive. It's going to be very tight and the ballot boxes play an increasingly important role in all this, because you know you shave off 234 baby five days from when you mail a ballot. But the boxes are controversial. Ah, couple of Connecticut towns complained that having them outside available to voters, 24 7 isn't safe, even though many are protected with security cameras. The Republican National Committee and the Trump campaign have filed suit to block Pennsylvania from using such boxes in November, arguing they could increase the chances for fraud. Tennessee Secretary of State Trey Hargett recently told a Senate committee his state doesn't allow drop boxes for fear voters might be pressured on how to vote. If someone knows you've got an absentee ballot, they can say, Hey, I'll be glad to take that for you and drop that off for you. They can ask you what you build that balance out or they can not turn it all for you. We believe it's a great security measure Tohave, someone returning their own balance by the United States Postal Service Dropbox supporters dismiss such concerns is completely unfounded. They note that drop boxes have been used in some states for decades without problems. Kristen Clarke of the Lord's Committee for Civil Rights under Law told senators the boxes are unimportant and convenient option for voters a compliment the limited postal box offices that are available in communities and are just critical to providing access this season access for whom isn't clear. Researchers have found that drop box is Khun Boost turnout overall. But there's no evidence at least so far that one party benefits more than the other. Still, Larry Olsen of Laser Fab Company in Washington state that makes the boxes, says demand's definitely on the rise. I couple orders today, and he's confident their boxes are far more secure than the average mailbox, he says. There are multiple features to prevent tampering. The boxes are also made of steel and weigh about Â£600 they're bolted to the ground, So it's not really something anybody can move easily. In fact, he notes at an SUV plowed into one of them in Washington state last year. Both the box and contents. Survived. Pam Fessler NPR news

How One Covid-19 Victim Was Lost in the Chaos
"Images and stories from the pandemic that will be seared into many people's memories forever. One of them was the discovery in April of rental trucks, holding dozens of dead bodies out a funeral home in New York City. The people found that day were victims not just of the coronavirus, but of a system overwhelmed one of them was seventy two year old nathaniel hallman. He lived in the Bronx with his wife Mitzi. They were married for forty two years. He repaired whirlpool appliances and in retirement he and his wife or a Deacon and deaconess at the Church of the Meek Baptist. Harlem they visited. visited the sick and shut ins in early April at the height of the pandemic and New York City home in was at a Rehab Center in the Bronx, where he was diagnosed with nineteen, the sent him to the hospital next door where a few weeks later he succumbed to the disease, but that's not where the story ends. It's where it begins our reporter Michael Phillips. He died on April Seventeenth, at Saint Louis Hospital and his goddaughter hope who is a very astute person. decided she would take responsibility for making sure that he was cremated and taking care of and and so his wife is widow. mitzi wouldn't have to do it. And so hope was under the impression that she had only seven days to get his body in the hands of funeral director, or the hospital would give the body to the city, and the city would bury him in a mass grave on Hart Island, which is a the Potter's field for New York City. One hundred and fifty years that the people have been left behind have been buried on on heard island. And, so she thought okay I've got a week to find somebody to take care of the body, and she started calling funeral homes, and they were all full. This was the height of the epidemic of hundreds and of New Yorkers were dying at a day on the day that that Daniel died three hundred eighty four New Yorkers died. And so the funeral homes would just overloaded. She called something like twenty funeral homes, and they all said we can't take him. Her Middle Son was even doing an internship at a Newark New Jersey funeral home and they were full to take Nathanielsz bodies. So she grew more and more panicky over the course of the week, and she contacted a family friend Reverend up in Connecticut, Marshall, Morton and Reverend Morton being in the you know the business of of being a clergyman new number of funeral home directors called up an old contact that he had named James Robinson. Mr Robinson worked out of a funeral home in Neptune City New Jersey as well as one in Brooklyn. And so he said, according to Reverend Morton I'll take care of this for you. I've got it and please. Please take the body down to my funeral home in Neptune. So the Reverend and hope son managed to find a funeral director, who would could drive the body out of New York to Neptune New Jersey Neptune city. And deliver it just before the what hope thought was the deadline at the hospital. They get the body out of there, so they took the bodies of Neptune city Mr Robinson the funeral director was not there. A person who was there said I'm sorry. I can't accept this body. They called up. Mr Robinson the funeral director. And this is where there's a lot of disagreement about what took place, but from the point of view of the family and Reverend Morton. What happened was Robinson said. I didn't mean for you to take it to. New Jersey Take my place in Brooklyn, this is something that that Mr Robinson disputes. He says he never said such a thing. The driver took the body up to Brooklyn to a funeral home called likely funeral services on UTICA avenue in Brooklyn. He dropped the body off there with the people who were there. They put it in. A refrigerated truck was parked on the street. And the family assumed everything was OK at that point. The body was supposed to be cremated on the twenty ninth so a few days later. And when hope called the the crematory to ask whether or not or godfather had been had been cremated, she got an answering. Machine were closed for maintenance the next day. She got answering machine message, but Never received confirmation he had been cremated. During this time news broke about all these bodies in Brooklyn in U. Haul trucks, and that was the same address where they had dropped off Mr Hallman. So hope began to panic and put things together. She called up the Reverend. The Reverend put things together. They all started to worry and at that point they tried to get Mr Robinson to explain where the body was. They tried to get a funeral home to explain where the body was tried to get the city. Medical Examiner explain where the body was, and they just couldn't find. It took until the fifth of May until. Finally learned that her godfather's bodied Nathaniel Hamad's body had actually been in the back of an unrefrigerated u-haul truck left on the street in Brooklyn, just a horrible horrible discovery, and it wasn't the end for Nathaniel. Family, who then spent several weeks trying to get his body and arranged for his final resting. What happened after this? There was another misstep when the bodies were discovered at the funeral home. In the U.. Haul trucks hope called the city medical examiner's office. They had come over. You know when the when the police got there and the after nine one one call reporting bodies and trucks on the street. You know hope called everybody. She could find the governor's offices. The attorneys general of the State of New Jersey and New York. You know. Where's My Godfather? And when she called the medical examiner's office, they had already collected sixty one bodies from the trucks and from clerk. Lee's funeral home itself, including many that would simply on the floor in various states of undress, and on the floor of the Chapel at the funeral homes just loaded with bodies. And so she when she called the medical examiner's office, they went through the list of all the bodies. They retrieved from the funeral home from the trucks. And Nathaniel Holman's name was not on the list, so for days and days she couldn't find out where he was. She even went over with Reverend Morton to the funeral home. Mr Clearly was not there at the time. Mr Robinson was not there at the time and she said. My father was here. Where is he and couldn't couldn't get an answer? And, what happened was and the fifth of May. That medical examiner's office discovered that the name on his paperwork had been reversed as hallman nathaniel so when they had looked up the bodies they had. When hope it call then they looked in their record, says he will what bodies we have. Do we have in home? It came up as a negative. The only had a home in faneuil. And by the fifth of May, they figured this out, and now remember he died on the seventeenth of April, so we're no weeks into this, and only then does hope discover that. In fact, her godfather had been in one of trucks and was now in the care of Medical Examiner's office. At that point, the the medical examiner said look. We have him safe. He's in. You know in cooled unit, so he's he won't decay. To be blunt about it. You can leave them here until you find a funeral director. WHO's able to cremate him? which is what the family wanted to do, so they held onto him and it wasn't until five weeks after his death. I think thirty nine days exactly after his death that they were able to get him cremated, and now his ashes are in an urn that his his widow Mitzi keeps at her bedside Michael. What else did you hear from city officials in response to this as well as from the quickly funeral home. The state authorities suspended Mr Claes. Licensed to act as a funeral director, and then held a series of hearings online hearings to decide whether to permanently revoked his license for you know poor practices, the ruling has not yet come out. They've had three hearings and the lawyers have submitted final closing statements, but the administrative law judge has not yet ruled on whether to revoke his license in listening to the at least one of those hearings, and in talking to Mr.. Claes attorney, he's basically the the argument is they were holding the bodies in the U. Haul trucks as they were moving them from the refrigerated truck which was. Recognized waited two whole bodies into the funeral home to be packaged up four cremation. And so he said we would keep them in the in the U. Haul trucks for a while and then move them. It was hard I think for the prosecuting attorney. I guess he'd be called the prosecuting attorney. Understand that because the argument is why not just move them from the refrigerated truck all the way into funeral home instead of stopping. This is just a matter of a few yards, so stopping and putting them in a truck. Mr Quickly. That's Mr Clarke's defense as well as his lawyer said to me. Look the whole city was inundated with bodies. Just wasn't enough. Space to handle the mall and so things happen. And he said that he thought it was unfair that his client Mr clinically was being singled out when so many other funeral homes were also overcrowded in his in his argument. So, that that is his defense Mister Robinson's defense. He has not been charged with any anything by the state. He has not been his has not been suspended, but in talking to him, his argument is. I never had that body. I never signed any paperwork saying that that body was under my control so everyone who says that I did agree to take control of Mr. Hammond's body is line. That is his argument. There are text messages back and forth in which he says that he would take care of the body, but he also said and give me the paperwork, so there's now a lawsuit underway Msci Hallman and hope dukes. Who is the the Goddaughter of Daniel? Hallman have filed suit against the he quickly home as well as Mr. Robinson And are seeking damages for what they describe of course as mistreatment of Nathaniel remains. Michael as you say, and as you've heard from many of the people in this story, Nathanielsz body was one of dozens discovered in rental trucks during the height of the pandemic. What did reporting out the story and what happened in this one case? Tell you about what happened here in New York at the height of this. So, what are your takeaways from this tragic story? This won't come as a surprise to anybody but. When the pandemic really hits and went really hit New York. Hardest I. At least in the United States of course. It just overwhelmed the system. The city and the people who who manage these things would just not ready for overwhelming the doctor. Was Internal Internist resident at Saint Barnabas Hospital. Who took? Mitzi up to see Nathaniel before he died is she would cry constantly into her. into a mask and goggles because there's just so much misery. All around her. And the same situation occurred with with the body's. Just the city. Wasn't prepared for the awfulness that that's that hit it. I can't judge whether they should have been more prepared. Or there was some mistake making made made at some point. That's not really within my capacity to judge. But, certainly, it was overwhelmed. And that meant that there are a lot of a lot of collateral damage and. Michi and hope, and of course Nathaniel himself were part of that collateral damage, and now I think. Between lawsuits and historians and journalists looking back at what happened. We'll start to peel that apart and figure out. Who did what who could have done things that were you know could have done things better and who who? Who did the best they could?

"A mistake that many photographers make as they make a go at being a professional photographer. is believing that being a generalist is an advantage. Saying that you can photograph, anything doesn't leave impression with a client that you think it should make. Secondly. It leaves the photographer to be defined by what they're hired to do. Rather than by the work that they have a passion for. You may achieve financial success. But. It may not be the type of photography. Sings to your heart Alan Clarke had a clear idea of the kind photographer. He wanted to be and the kinds of photographs you wanted to make. Based in Nashville Tennessee his desire to be a photographer in the music. Industry could have led him to photograph. Country Music Stars. But. He didn't want his physical address to pigeonhole his photography or his aspirations. so He created his own path as a commercial editorial photographer resulting in a career that has allowed him to photograph the likes of Sir George Martin even. Hawk Bob Newhart and two former presidents. I hope this conversation demonstrates the importance of defining who you WanNa be and who you are as a photographer. This is about an annex and welcome back to the candidate frame. Are, I. Alan Welcome to the show. Thank you glad to be here so glad to get Nice Mike. Voice this should be. This is gonNA sound good? Stuff. You ever watched thirty rock now know. Alec, Baldwin and Will Arnett, both have amazing voices, and so they played that up a lot, and that's to our strengths as well so they had like a sexy voice off at one point. Close to each other, and be like I can do that and then they to be like. Yes, you can this. Man Gets. Today's the record this. The astronauts took off on the capsule and the rocket today and I know you're thinking. What you're talking about. You're saying. Neil. Armstrong! Yeah, it's a replica of his suit over a Hoodie. So Yeah I've completely nerd out today you've you've photographed a bunch of the of the suits. But where did the best nation begin? I think like most of us. You think of these images and you dream when you're a child like I was I wanted to be. An oceanographer wanted to be part of the cousteau. Society I wanted to be an astronaut and. Set in my second third grade class looked out the window and reflected on every port report card ever had. Would get these notes of our report cards to be like a you unsatisfactory. He just doesn't pay attention. He looks out the window constantly. That's what I got. Unsatisfactory what they had on the report Carsberg. Takes. A dreamer looks like when they're little. We have the album are recordings of the Apollo flight at my house, growing up so double album and it had pictures of the flight and I remember. I didn't think I really understood exactly what I was listening to just Kinda of thought, it will couple. At record on and just listened to it and look at looking at the pictures. I think it's probably still in my house somewhere. Let even though I don't have a record player anywhere near, let's. I, don't know I'm not one of those. Guys. Are. You saying you're not a hipster? Is that what you're saying? I think that by a couple of decades man I duNno, sometimes. My wife tells me their original hipster. Looking into some of this I'm like I. Don't know, but then I look at myself. When I do that. A you still have a record player and listen to things and she may be right. Working the idea that you want it to be able to photograph the spaces issue. Number of them have and you know I guess the idea came along Huntsville. Space and rocket center is only two and a half hours from Nashville so. have been going down there since I was a kid. My parents took me when I was little, and it just never stopped and something like a tradition. Take took my children there and. I've had photo shoots. Their showed up multiple times I. Don't think they. Enough to where they're sick of me, but it's pretty close. And just kept going there and going there, but then when I would do like photo shoots across. You know our great country. I would go to in in Boston there's A. Museum for JFK and I've been there and just seeing Johnson, space center in Houston of course, and all the different spots every time I get a chance I'll go and visit and just take my camera with me when I go, and my whole point is to just record these to record them like I would do it. Not like a tourist would try to actually light it really well, and sometimes you get permission to do these things, and sometimes you don't. But most of these things are on public display, and were American citizens, so we can kind of like just Bassani and people don't know this, but all all the museums in DC are all. All free to American citizens, because that's part of our taxes, and that's what it goes towards, and so you can kind of do anything you and requests, these types of things, so it started years ago through a space and rocket center, which was a privately funded thing, and it was on the redstone arsenal, the right next to the arsenal base course Verner von Braun worked out of Huntsville Developing Saturn five, and so it's steed like a weird thing like an Alabama of all places steeped in this rocket tradition. You know that know people just don't know about and they kind of had them. They're just to kind of hide them a little bit. Kept them safe there instead of putting them in a big city like DC or New York, but that's when the fascination started from as from a very early age, just repeatedly going down there and shooting these things and You know on crappier cameras when I was little like instamatic disclaimer.

"Icon. Unfortunately the rather terrible ABC Show once upon a time address. That the Tried to force a romance between her and the Macintosh like there was like a whole arc. Where because she she didn't defend her father who you know big sort building? Try and go because you defend him and he died on her watch. She was worthy of being Queen. There was like a whole thing. She's going prove yourself again and was involved. It's very wait. Hold ideal these characters in that show. Yeah Yeah Disney owns. ABC So they can just do fucking weird problematic fan fiction on their stupid show all the AH. I didn't know there was a merita that's ox. ABC to the ground macintoshes macintoshes the brave hardy one. I love when people fuck up their own good word. That's I am back. Oh okay so. They did have some queer relationships in there. Okay it was oh good as long as it was bad and set things back. Oh God that's brutal. Thank you for sharing that very upsetting in a more. Yes on the topic of Meridor's more. I'd like to add a few more elements and hear your reaction to them. It seems pretty clear that the reason why how they need to resolve bad problem is so solve their issue with plight which shows Modi's actions as being overly prideful and then when in the ruins of the Owned Castle and they see that the man who became bad bear was trying to be selfish and not be part of the community to family and and that was wrong and this leads murder then tried to explain to order lords. She's been bad into politics as you've talked about so the only thing the isn't embracing the patriarchal system end up moment is the she gets to choose who she wants to fuck. And that that's basically it it other than that thing and even now we've kind of learned she only chooses amongst a free men who she had a choice of anyway right. Yeah the it still seems like she. Basically her fought her. More ARC is to learn to embrace the patriarchy. Commodore I get to choose the Dick Right right so that she doesn't become a barrel. Of course it is I do. Yeah I have some issues with Merida's are and I also feel like when they when they do that scene and they try to set up like prideful will make you into a bad bear like MHM that's felt like very false equivalency because all she's trying to do is have some ownership of what happens to her she's not trying to inflict harm or control over literally anyone but herself I feel like comparing her to this prince that no one gives a fuck about was kind line of like yeah that was just another way that I like the plot subtly would punish Merida and her mother and kind of invent this thing that married a has to feel bad about when the the only person she's trying to exercise control over is herself she's not trying to force anything on anyone so fuck that Prince. What was that that was too many barriers? Yeah One more question in the corner there. Yes so the question was how the movie represents curly hair and like like the element of a wild nature and nonconformity and how. That's often tied with curly hair so I had made a hair and a past life. I like fatty wild ginger curly hair and after brave I grew it so it got even longer and even wilder. I don't know if that if I was influenced by that but an islet proper way and I had like ginger does don't like here heart. It's hard to imagine view high brave. I guess that is a good point. She's the only one to have there been other princesses the F. late. I don't think so. And most of the other princesses have been white women. Women have curly. Hair is not exclusively but Women of Color in in curly hair is there are connections So I think yeah. I think it's just a matter of like all the princesses in like fairytale fairytale history being white women like various degrees of like adventurous. I don't know totally how to answer a question but I think think that it's definitely something that like. I'll be on the lookout more for. Yeah I know that there's more written on this and I know just with the amount of knowledge I have. I'm not qualified to really speak to it. I did kind of view that as an attempt at some sort of subversion of the princess archetype that they seem to try hi to becoming on a lot of like this. You know like where. There's I can't really think of a princess. Besides aerial who's hair isn't somehow like styled or controlled old in some way and so it seemed like a character designed to indicate something about her but I I definitely see what you're saying and that's something that yeah I would just. I need to do more research on thank you. I'm sure that up to yeah for sure. So does this movie past the Bechtel test. Yes passes the bear taught. That was like a bad pun on the level that I usually do I as I was like. Wow I didn't know ahead Jamie honestly brave of you yes it passes between Merida and Elinor passes between Merida in the which who isn't technically named which Plot Pot which I think. She's an important enough character. 'cause there's like the name caveat is like do we see this woman for five seconds or less and bullet. Yeah I think I think I would count. It doesn't pass as as much as you would. Ah here most of the time to talk she but they are communicating and I think that there is like I mean battle battle tests. Oh my God is not a precise metric because it wasn't designed to be that I think that you know like even though a lot of communication between meredith and her mom are nonverbal verbal. It's still I would buy. It absolutely does. The charades bear seen counts occasions between female identifying characters. Yes absolutely there's be damned bears. They speak their own language. What would we rate this on the nipple scales zero to five nipples based on its representation? Patient of women I would give this. I think of four three and a half four. I think for the time especially it was like it was paving the way for our other like feminist texts targeted at young girls to be made. I think there's a lot of stuff at handles really well. It subverts a lot of tropes and but as we've talked about there's some missteps and again they're probably all John lasseter's fault But Yeah I don't like that like the burden becomes is is placed on Merita to have to apologize for just being like a feminist icon. That's Patriarchy with her ideas somehow. Yeah there's a lot of weird things like that but Old Split the difference and I'll do three point seven five now everyone doesn't imagine slicing nipple like that Yeah and I will give one to bear mom to two married And I'll give give my three quarters nipple to Paddington. You should be in this movie. If if you're going to have to bears why not a third bear rule of threes. Let's try to yeah I'M GONNA do was I swear to. I was thinking the exact same number three point seven five. Yeah I mean because meeting this movie in context on its terms for twenty twelve. This was kind of the only movie of its kind nine. That was coming out so for all the reasons that the way that it deals with the idea of Patriarchy was kind of frustrating but it it does seem like there have been movies since that have learned from the lessons That this movie sort of taught us and the fact that this is like one of the first female Helms fuck the other guy who worked on it for a year and a half. Don't care is Brennan. Chapman's movie. Like that is a really cool step in the right direction. And unfortunately since she loves pixar she hasn't been able to correct another movie so I really really really hope that those opportunities continue to be available. So that's all I'll do three point seven five give To in America one to one of the brothers. Whichever was your pay And I'll give the last three quarters to bear mom great virtually and how about you I am. I'm not scared at math. Strong solid. Three sure I just think that it was going relatively well until she decides she doesn't want to get married and then she poisons or mum say I know what cowboys and my mum mum turns on a bear and she's asleep. Maybe that was too much. Maybe we could have slept on it and great things in the morning and she would have came round. She doesn't she says she's a bear on then and then it's harmful it's our fault. Mum's a bear and we forget that she's late not late to get bodied. No she just has to change her Erma bombeck by apologizing profusely for something. She didn't mean to do right. And then she's like Barger Lane thinking about getting Eddie's the end so she also made a really irresponsible purchased by buying all of those woodcarvings. Yeah what was that four right. Yeah she's rich was that the plot does being like get ready. There's a lot more bears were this..

"Sure no-one you can talk to her. She's she's brave. Yeah how she's another Disney princess was seemingly only animal friends. Yeah why does she have like a human. I've been friends. We don't see any other people there. There's a major Peasant erasure there. We don't see anyone who's valued at less than six figures in except for plot which we don't well. Maybe we ought to Monty is like a chambermaid or something like Elaine. Yeah yeah she. She plays objectified. Mati plays into like the hysterical woman stereoty via because she's always true and hysterical. The woman are few are only. I mean I- conic brave of them to include these tropes true. I blame anything that isn't like like good or that's kind of trophy about this movie on like John. lasseter sure but I feel like Brenda Chapman would have you. You know not done that stuff. We firmly stand Brenda. Yes we stand Brenda Chapman. I think we have time for a few questions or comments from the audience. ooh Oh yes. How many nipples bears? How question was the question? Aw I don't know if the top of my head so I'm GonNa look at this and then I'll tell you that so I learned this recently. That the number of Nipples and animal has is dependent upon the number of offspring. They generally have per litter so bears. I think generally have like maybe two who were three cubs at a time. I'm guessing but but you double double it so twice as many nipples is it. Do they have six. Yes wow I I try the way. This'll be editor. Okay so six Nepalese is thank you so much of your question veg. Yeah do you think the cake that was given was this bear nipple. Oh the the witches cake I think that is what a bear nipple looks like. Yes kind of flat and Square Square Ish and delicious and if you eat a bear nipple it'll turn you into a bear that is with more do like with the other bear story. It felt like they didn't need to be there at all but it could have been really interesting. We looked at like end doc. Mother Bear Killing Patriarch Uber. So do you think there could have been any way to make actually for the story was just this kind of like ooh. There's I mean there I could have done with either a lot more or a lot. Less bears doesn't the amount of bear is confusing. Jimmy I didn't I saw I mean I watched the trailer. I didn't show up ready for bear there. There's also there's another Disney's Disney's brother bear where a human turn that bear and that movie. I hope we never cover. Because it's a fucking disaster there. I've never seen it but I it's a it's a Phil Collins joint which I do I mean in England we stand we. Don't we fuck us. I know I know. Yeah no I did think that like the Patriarchy added in there and then you get this like. I don't know there's like the fact that there were four writers on this movie very obvious because everyone was affiliate maybe patriarchy Barry was added after Brenda Chapman left because there was a moment where it's kind of it reminds me of that moment. There's a scene gene and the rock his wife his wife where there's like a soldier who dies. We don't know who this soldier is. He's played it off with like twenty seconds like a twenty one gun so they're like it's some guy and they're like really like who is this guy. I felt the same way about Patriarchy bear when his ghost appears above the Barrett. The end and Meredith. Like I'm so glad you're here. I I don't care about your soul. Are you a bad guy. But she's like good for you. What the the second there? I don't even know if they're needed to be one. Bear storylines much less to sit in the back there so to repeat it into the the question. The comment is basically because her dad permitted to go off and like out outdoorsy journeys as and stuff like that. She has the wherewithal in the knowledge to know that like the berries that bear mom tried to collect for breakfast would have died doc because bear mums. Be Making breakfast. They would have died because merita wouldn't have known that they were poisonous. Worms in the water. I can see your point for Fergus. Not all about yeah I is. This movie could have been called mother bear. Ah The comment to summarize is That when women are given weapons are generally long range weapons happens as opposed to hand to hand combat. which is something that you kind of see? I mean in these two characters alone which it makes me glad that meredith at least gets to do some sword wielding guess at certain points but it does seem like it is still kind of an unnecessary limitation and in some ways kind of indicates. There's still still some cultural weirdness around seeing women Andrew Like Combat Hancock Women. They're allowed to be snipers But not have swords and knives exception to that. Yeah I think that's generally very true and exception is one of three female characters and Lord of the Rings a n and a everyone's name why why wasn't you and McGregor cast in the Scottish movie writing. What did he do? Maybe Brennan Chapman was like No. I won't talk about but then wields a sword but yeah I would say in general. That's totally true where women are only allowed to use long range. That's one game of thrones gets right sometimes. Is that you get to see women really brutally murdering people to she gotTA. I love it for a couple more questions. Time for boxer America as.

"Of this special Thanksgiving week filled with even more premieres so treat every day like Christmas Day and make lifetime your destination for a new holiday movies. Twenty four seven all season long more about about just this movie being the first Pixar film with a female lead. Yes that is true but it's also the one that most closely resembles a typical animated Disney princess. Movie has the other Pixar movies about deploys. Getting be about toys Bugs monsters cars fish robots etc.. But the good news is after brave. Save there were more female protagonists in Pixar movies. We're inside out where we spend the time inside a woman's brain Confusing place that none of us understand what's vast Finding Dory Yeah but all the same like this is the first one with a female lead it still is like a fairy tale about a princess and while I would say especially by twenty any twelve standards it is a feminist text. It is still showcasing a very specific type of female archetype which is a rich white. Young young princess grow. Yeah who can go to plot which is house and be like I have gold relatable Yeah I also I mean I think that is kind of another indication of how male-dominated Pixar and that entire industry is But especially actually pixar because there are so many demonstrable examples of women's opinions just being absolutely shut down at any opportunity of it's not. It's like kind of disappointing sappointing. Even though I I like brave glad it exists. It's disappointing that the only female lead story. They were willing to take a chance on was something. That was a clear. You're clearly demonstrated a princess movie. There's really not even though there are like inversions and like really really smart ones done by. I'm assuming the female writers They're still not taking a real gamble by doing this. I don't think I mean I think it was a gamble by their standards but making another a princess. Movie is not a huge risk. No no no I was curious about. Is this story rooted in any sort of like Scottish lower folklore and I and Rachel an as our resident expert is there. It is that the case is not from Medieval Scotland but everything about Scotland has ever happened. Like I don't I don't think so. I think the West like West business is that as a thing. Okay and like the storms of a thing. I've been to Stonehenge. Oh yes things do. Well this one I was in the eighties. But there's like there's more than one there's more than one stonehenge they're just. It's not all called Stonehenge. Marketing students and AVEC circle are a thing. Sure no one knows why why. Maybe that's where they had the bare face back today. Like we've not. We've not quite figured I am why they're there and ask for like turning into a bear. No that's not. That's not part of outage lower. Maybe once a month but like no no no still instil. I've just like what is going on with the bear the bear I honestly if this movie had played out the way I thought it was going to which is a movie. Oh I think I would've liked better What would've been like America going off and you know like leaving the kingdom that she is from you know and and going out finding her own way coming back with the lesson? She's learned. I mean basically invert the hero story that we've seen with male characters a billion times and seeing it with this really cool empowered capable female character and then we kinda get caught in the weeds of this whole bear situation and she doesn't get much further than two miles else from home. Yeah feel like there's not really a lesson footer. Lehrer no yeah she doesn't want to get mighty and then she does which which is like in itself? That's a subversion but I do think that like I don't even I'm like is this a feminist critique or is weird writing writing of just not much about her changes and what does change about. We're kind of made me feel weird of by the end. ooh The the action that merita takes at the climax of the movie to unbear- her mom right is that she apologizes for her firmly held values right and that was just like what are we supposed to be taking away from that the like the first twenty minutes of this movie which I loved loved and doing archery she rips her dress. She's like fuck this and you know like that is so incredible but then it feels like she's apologizing for all of that having happened happened being like oh I didn't respect patriarchal traditions. And so and now my mom's Baram so bad. Yeah I agree that she kind of has yeah. I mean she should apologize to her mom for turning her into a bear but but she did I tell. You Apologizes Ursula clearly states. What's going to happen? That's true even makes her sign a contract and I know it was basically a scientist inches and a lawyer for sure and then this plot which apparently only knows one spell which is to turn people into bears. She's also ever Tom Awesome. She's also a coach l.. At you're just like who is this. Emma Thompson's the MOM is ever taught. Sorry sorry so you're right. Who's WHO's the watery? Walters waters are walters swaps and Mrs Bird from Paddington. Yeah let me. Just take a quick sidebar to you know at the Paddington parallels the obvious both being bear heavy movies. Julie Julie Walters plays the witch who is of course Mrs Bird in padding gender Emma Thompson who voices. Eleanor is from Paddington England. And you know who else is from Paddington. England whom Alfred Molina. Yes we do that. How did they not let him in the movie? Why did he? I don't know I bet he was busy and he didn't want to. Oh my God Wow Wow he's from. I well if we're talking about who Alfred Molina complain. This movie and I know.

"Hello thanks for being here. Thanks for having me. I'm really excited to be here. Women in Film Women in film the PODCAST. So we're talking about brave of corporate. This is my. This is the best movie for us to cover. Because I say brave all the time so Everything that happens in this movie is brave and this show currently the the show that we're doing after this one is the favorite mash awesome together. It's the bravery at night there. ooh So I was very impressed with it. Thank you not anyone else was By Rhonda Pas who has seen the movie brave brave brave great base there. Is there anyone who has not seen brave clap power call an inversion version so Rachel in. What's your history your relationship with brave well apart from the obvious and it came out in late twenty twelve and I was unemployed because I just graduated and media so you know brave nor really into the whole Disney princess? I usually but I was like sue. Quick to scrape up the last of my Dole money just like unemployment benefactor thank you thanks very stupid the coat in the corporate. Like quite quite when you go see brave and yet just like skipped to the cinema and did you like it loft like really loved it for so many reasons that I will get into but yeah like definitely like definitely my favorite Disney favorite favorite. This is very flat Caitlyn. What about you I saw it. I don't think in theaters but as per usual like not long after it came out and I liked it just fine and I think it was that that was the only time I saw it. until prepping for the show but I have a greater appreciation for it now i. I wasn't that fond of it at the time because I hadn't discovered my love of bears yet I needed. I needed Paddington to come out two years later and now bears all what about you. What's your history? I hadn't seen it. I was I was in college when this movie came out so I was probably just like busy torpedoing. My life wasn't seeing a lot of movies at that time but no I hadn't seen it before it's been on my list of things. I wanted to watch forever so I saw it. When we were prepping Aka yesterday and I liked it there was some things of it? It's so weird. I feel like even between twenty twelve and now the way that leading female characters Are Treated in movies has already we changed quite a bit and so there are already feels in some ways to me to be a little bit dated even though it just came out seven years ago but anything is like a huge aged like step forward and a lot of ways I would that be the most about this. Movie is in the marketing of this movie. They didn't know way. Indicate that it's about about a bear freaky Friday. I thought it was about like if they're like. She doesn't conform to the rules. She shoots arrows. I'm like this is fucking in cool. I love this and then also her mama. Mom is above bear. Your come from I was truly I was was like shocked like why do that but I guess we'll just unpack it for the day. But I just I didn't see the bear combing. I'm like why did they. Why was there so much bear erasure in the marketing? Life is about a mom bear situation. I know I know confusing. Well shall I get into the recap recap. We're we've been here for two days so we're from here so the kind of how it works okay. The story of brave Merida is a little girl in medieval Scotland. And she's the cutest over huge food and she's a princess and her parents are the king and Queen. That's how that works. Yep Okay and she loves archery and for for her birthday. Her Dad gets her a bow and Arrow and as she's practicing with it she comes across a bunch of wisps. which are these like ethereal real little like blue wispy basically like stolen from studio cheaply right and as Legend has it these wisps esps lead you to your fate an just then? A demon bear hug not Paddington. The opposite named Mordue new attacks Merida's family and she and her mom escape as her father fights it off ten years later Her Father Fergus has lost asked his leg in this bear attacks than mean bear. Bear more do merit has three little brothers now Hamish Hubert and Harris a little huddling balls. They're very cute and Merida's mother. Eleanor is teaching her. How to be Prim and proper so oh that meredith can rule is queen one day and then when their stuff to talk about when Merita ah when she can she escapes the pressures of Princess Life to borrow a phrase from a Latin ooh and she ventures often in practices her archery? What she is there? There's music playing in the background. Your Life Pure And one day MERITA concerns that three young male suitors are coming to visit from each of the neighbouring clans. And they're going to compete in some games and the winner will be betrothed to Merida and this makes her furious because she does not want to get married and is she supposed to be also. She's it seems like I would guess I would guess closer to sixteen. Yeah the standard Princess Age. Hope so I would boy and so she and her mom argue but Merida realizes that she has no choice but to participate because it's tradition so although like cartoony that is yeah bringing their Scottish boys to woo her. They are Macintosh. which which I think is a nod to Steve Jobs who won? Oh the other major. Twist of the movie attribute to Steve Jobs at the end eras what what but there was because he had just died and I guess we were still like. Oh He's a nice guy like I don't know what we were thinking because he also stated. Yeah some I mean doesn't I mean it was a good person. We've all seen the Ashton Kutcher. We've all seen jobs starring Ashton Kutcher. A man was a monster. uh-huh so Macintosh he. He's giving off off some strong William Wallace Braveheart Vibes macguffin which is is a film term and I know that I studied screenwriting and I have a master's in it from Boston University but I hate to mention it. You're getting in your money's worth on that just by repeating right. He's like a toll dude that no one understands when he speaks on and then dingwall. He's he's don't even know what referential that's A. That's a very sophisticated ref. Yes yes no. I'm kidding I don't know he's like this little do do we be guy so each of the sons are presented and none of them are appealing to merit and then there's too much masculine energy in the room. So a fight breaks out and then Queen. Eleanor explains how the Games will go and Meredith perks up when she hears that only the firstborns of each clan are eligible people to compete so Merida chooses archery as the thing that they'll all compete in. She should be a lawyer. That was like a very clever. Oh yeah a brave choice choice. I would say and the three young men all shoot with varying degrees of success and then Merida is like Actually Lee is the firstborn of clan. Brock I will be competing for my own hand. This is the best part of the whole. It's so exciting. Happens before the bare twist is my favorite thing I've ever seen. The bear stuff happens and she fucking creams. The three boys Yeah Archer Ero and like yeah screaming something that I.

"No one knew what it was. It was so no any what it was for a while for so wasn't allowed to any painkillers for awhile whole Jeez. I'm in like a Ame in north London on a Saturday night at this point and the nurse you saw me. Her husband was a brain surgeon and she was like. I think I know what this is. Let's get you in for brain scan. And then they saw that there was massive amounts of bleeding on the brain right so now we know what to do. I managed to have the good fortune again to the hospital to take care of that the next morning. We have have the surgery so they go through your groin. You're exactly and they go up around your heart and into your brain Glenn so where the weakness was in the vein in my brain the blood as it pumps and your body foster and foster foster it forms a little bubble on that weakness because it's not robust enough to just keep going and the brain hemorrhage itself is that bubble bursts Is it an embolism before it. POPs is in an embolism and then when it pops. It's an aneurysm awesome. No it's an aneurysm. Before it pokes it's a hemorrhage hammered. Yeah find out what embolism so then as your blood is continue to run your body. It's now escaping out and when that happens you lose a bit of your brain as soon as there's a part of your brain that doesn't get blood to it. It just dies in that moment. Swat what strike is Oh and so they got where that hole was and put copper wires to stop the blood from escaping any further and continue going around and because I was young. I didn't lose anything that was affected my all or exactly what I saw that I had and they saw that I had another one on the other side anyway so three weeks Nas portal. Hell terrible had a single dysphasia. Which essentially way you you look in so you can't speak cute Amelia for three weeks? You have that no. I had that for about three days again. I was young enough that they ended up pumping me full of adrenaline. That like doc that got rid of it yes. That was super difficult. I just got to be the most claustrophobic kind of panicky feeling you can. Nabbed wasn't making any sense. Yeah it was pretty dog. Gosh but anyway so we get through all of that and I'm okay and then I leave hospital within about about five weeks. I was back to work as you really quick question about this at any point during this are you like Oh my God this is GonNa be public. This is embarrassing. This is I just don't want that'd be associated with Did any of that cross your mind to wait to figure out that I wasn't going to die for food. They could tell. Hbo What had happened. And that was probably about as much. which is I was ever GonNa tell anyone right? And isn't it funny because why like I agree. I can relate yet some weakness of character that you had you something I think because I was so it almost like it was never even an option of me saying it to anyone so it was just like well I need to figure out what this is is and I don't want to give that to anyone else to figure out. Fool me what they think it is because I need to work out what this is for me. I don't WanNa get back to work. I'm fucking he on a wing in a hope and a prayer. I'm like a young bright with zero experience. He's probably not very good unload those what this is all. We fight in a second so my God I need to like. Yeah pretty to them. That I'm worth being here and me having a brain hemorrhage isn't going to help well. This is a deeply personal experience. Anything that deeply personal. You're probably why not excited to example exactly yes so why. We didn't really tell many people. The second season was really difficult. Because you have this thing called fatigue regardless regardless of what of whatever kind of brain injury you get whether you have the misfortune of having a serious lifelong injury or whether you're you're just like me and you just you miraculously escaped with everything saying tact. But you do have fatigue so filming hours were just like I. I was on morphine trying desperately through the day. Oh really but then did you feel like were you nervous. I was going to affect acting and all I thought it was. I thought that was is gone with my ability to act consist anything and the second one happened and then I was really like well. That's it I'm never going to art again. This isn't the first one was two thousand thirteen. Thirteen eleven in the second was she. Doesn't that after the first one it do you go. Oh my God. I'm vulnerable to this. Are you obsessed with it. Happened again again. Not the first one happened and I was. It wasn't is this going to happen again because they were like you have. There's one another side. We just need to be aware of it but it was more that so this this this is in my experience of being nearly fatally ill. Is that your Inositol for X.. Men Time this goes for anything you could have concert. You could have a broken leg. You could be be getting a tooth out. Whatever is you in hospice affects money time and in that time? Everyone is telling you that you are sick. Everyone is telling that you need to take care. Everyone is telling that you need these beeps and you need these pills and you need these things and you need to be watched an. It's constant and you're surrounded by other sick people and then you fuck leave leave and you're like oh all I wanted was fresh air and a bath and now I'm here and I'm not allowed to be here because you just told me for three. I'm ill to take care the. What am I am not safe? I don't feel safe and with brain injuries. I found that it's not just me that thinks this but as soon as that happens it's way you brain is its way you'll all personality is it's it's way you yeah black as soon as that becomes something you'll calling into a question and that can be on any level with mental health as well but especially with an injury where you like. My Buddy failed me. How in God's name and I expect to wake up every morning and feel safe within myself so you get super protective of yourself because I have this invisible thing? You can't see see that I'm sick but I know that I am so bit by bit carefully. Careful you build yourself back up and build your resilience backup and you build your kind of your trust backup opened yourself but it takes a second. Yeah do you row buses fuck because you're like. Hey I saw the other side and I'm good I I think that's the thing would trauma in general which is like oh the the trauma of being molested is simply that I believe that the people on Earth were all benevolent and Nice. And then someone's shatters your world view and you go. Oh at eight years old. There are bad guys are people around that are GonNa try to take advantage of you in such a radical shift in in your world view that it's very scary similarly. You've never worried about your brain your head. I'm thinking about Iran and now all of a sudden you go. Oh I'm in this world where my brain can hemorrhage yeah yea very worldview change. Yes it was that for a minute it for a little while and then I was doing the show on Broadway end of my sag medical knows like aldous go get brain scan wall here and wallets painful and and so I went in and they were like Whoa. There's other ones doubled in size to operate. Now we'll have a preventative surgery. Nothing of so fine scary but okay fine and in that surgery as often happens it went wrong. Oh the coils got stuck and I had a major bleed. Oh so it was a much biggest stroke. They woke me up on the table. And we're like we need to crack head open and and fix this. Can you do that on mean so I'd gone to sleep being peace out out. See you in two hours and I wake up in like the excruciating Ferguson's here exactly and so that was way more life or death breath than the last one my mom and dad whether they shave some of your head and they. They were amazing. They didn't I have Koskoff from here to here. So for my ear to like the very top of my middle. And because of what my boys they shaved the minimal amount so so they kept some heroin. This suddenly kept somehow. And that's how I can't tell you now looking at. What was the recovery time from that? That was Mak- mega with the other one. My Body could handle it but when you have leisure wind someone cracks or brain when they get a sorry listeners. Soren you cut in your skull and stitch that puppy back together again. That's such an epic amount of trauma for your body. Yes and then. Ironically every time my left the hospital I Bang my head every taxi I got into do the one thing meant to be taken care all man. I can't take care of it. Oh that was really difficult. I come from a family of raised to be like it. New never allowed to say poor me. Yes pity. Haiti is not a fucking emotion that we have in this household say like taken elsewhere and with the second one I was just like I'm trying really hard to not be like why needed a happen again. But it sucked because I was only just getting over the first one and then the second one him but all of these things led me to go. I mean I like the new point nope essential to what have had and to survive with no major repercussions and now because they're both done how sounding of what's going on my brain rain than most people. Yeah so I get to be like. Oh no I'm completely fine because you never d- cocaine pretty much. Well that's very good though Jason. Okay so obviously as a result of all that you you started saying you you. Yes is to broaden neuro rehabilitation access for young people after they have brain injuries or strokes. Yes but here. You've started a charity to help people. It's very admirable and so what are the mechanics of that. How do you promote it? Raise money how do people get involved with it. Yes this is something that we we started. It started as me wanting to get a sofa for the family room in the first hospital. 'CAUSE my family would come in. Like Kirk Sinn Fein Dhabi to sleep defined you find me. He goes like fucking uncomfortable. And I'm in hospital and so we started is that and then I just wanted to give it back. I just wanted to give back so badly because I was so beautifully taken care of if and I was so grateful to be alive literally and then the second one happened and I was like okay. This is crazy. I'm alive again how I cheated the death once more. This is absolutely insane. A half to help people because I was in the very fortunate position of being able to have a supportive loving family and people around me to be able to hold me up and and make sure that I was okay. I'm missing that I was talking about about you. Leave Hospital and you feel scared regardless of what the thing is so there was this this huge white space at the moment for brain injury which is recovery go in and they fix your brain but no one fixes your mind man. It's such a head..

"Weeping SA- Georgia's John. You would hate to watch the show with me as monocle. We we want you to group probably every eight minutes I go Kunle. It's like a it's a bit like can't very everything good is good. Yeah the intensity I miss it. It's so he liked you so much we can. Aw Okay now. Only get into a game of thrones by the way he's sick of talking about game of thrones. You know the because it changes all the time it does. You're not going to believe me when I say this but I mean it with complete sincerity. It was two weeks ago I suddenly was just sitting in my room thinking about stuff and went That was. It's like a very big thing. I told you I was two weeks ago. I literally we all did. I was talking to Bernie Bernie Love Buddy Nicole food produced on the show. Reason happens and then David and Dan and we were talking. We were all discussing how we basically when ten years ago we were like. Hey guys get in. His bunker will warm. We got some stuff going. It's cool shut the door and we stayed in the bunker for ten years and then we just suddenly like earn in came up and looked around. And when those fucking crazy that was really weird because the job itself is so different from the product and so different from the reexamine exactly exactly and I feel like very nature of what we do. is we wrestling with the idea of people's Gaze on you you've got the camera's gaze on you and you're searching to to try and communicate with that camera wool the things that you need to be communicated for the sake of a storytelling point of view while also ignoring it. wallows league elite ignoring it in your own human reaction to the fact that you'll be all of these things and then reverberations of that is that then you'll wrestling with a body of humans watching the other side of that. What that gazes then on you and how you dissect within yourself and how you figure out where you fit in that and for me? I just decided to ignore all of it will right. I think I think you're getting into what it is. It's like there's a little bit of a mind trick that you do to be able to act in front of a one hundred people. There's some disassociated aspect of it and it's almost like you build this imaginary wall where it's like you exist within there but that's not you Imbaba Blah and then so weirdly. Yeah that wall stays up even when it's like now on TV know exactly exactly and you never we as human beings can never ever ever. You never know the things that you never in someone else's never fully understand what it is because you can't see yourself because you don't know what you look like someone else said well. And so that on screen in his times a bazillion and then you've got this epic story that you're telling for me on top of all of that it was being new to the game and realizing that and it has breath a goal disappear so if I put myself worth on I would inevitably end up. Very Sad yes yes yes yes especially if you start with as as you said like imposter syndrome I certainly had to in my own life now. I do feel like you would at least be spared. The haning watching yourself just you did you pick apart your own looks. Even though you're my God do I do. I'll see Monica. We were arguing about this too. I really don't think there's anyone that looks in the mirror is like fuck. Yeah motherfucker. I think we were talking about Brad. Pitt going yes. I like to to have one hundred percent of the time. been the most handsome man in the league. Komo his whole life wasn't the handsome. Is that just very fascinating. He comes across as kind of humbly. I know by now saying I bet. He doesn't think think I bet. He narrative that he either looked. Let's just hypothesize I'm cheesy looking or I'm Jay or whatever I bet. He's got some similarities. With how much emotional intelligence you have because I tonight me and my mate. Lola always took weather when we have kids. What we hope is that they are beautiful in stupid because they'll always is be happy unaware of what it is that they are dealing with if it's beautiful than they go and there's no question that and that's whatever that is but I think if you've got a a high emotion intelligence than you always gonna be trying to figure out how people are looking at you and then if you put your worth on how you look than you instinctively then go all got a pay more attention to that? And I've got to look at that even more and that's going to be the thing and then you realize that steeply unfulfilling and then you've got to figure out why I need to expand my brain and have that be the thing that reliance make me feel find. Meaning I'm they. Things are so complicated in there so kind of they are. Because now that I'm thinking about it I bet yet even and someone who has your face will probably why thank you know you don't you don't have to say thank you but I guess everyone's like looking looking at their own bodies so even if you have like face maybe you're like well I have no objections of with my face. Maybe I WANNA look this way or that way I guess it just never stops. Yeah especially with this idea of being on camera and how you look how someone else looks at you and what other people think of you now other people look at you and then not change how you look at yourself. Yes which is annoying. Okay so I don't even know where to start but there's two things because it'd be before objectify you which is coming. I'd like to first objectified the men in the show. You know you I. I love her in. The show. Is fucking Jason Memorial. Call Drago. I mean can we just want you deny yes like hey so you know. We're about to shoot this thing. You'RE GONNA make call drug Jason Momoa steps up. Yeah are you like what the fuck is. I mean. We're not were you Baldo. I mean physically bold he literally when he first met me. He wrestled to the ground growls. I was so linguist before then I had never met anyone his eyes. He's let alone. His size of personality has size of like a war. YV Like that's a terrible version of him but yeah because he's got some Hawaiian spirit and then some just. Wow what celebrate. The fact that you're you're I into I was lucky me did. He's one of those incredibly rare people who their personalities and their spirit is as big as he is a double whammy. It's not just that he's a big guy it's that he's it's like yeah. He just radiates like whenever room. He's in he takes up the whole room just like Whoa. Wow and it's fucking bill until he took care of me too. Yeah he really really in an environment where I didn't know it needs to be taken care of. You're young. You've imposter complex. You have to do nudity. Yeah terrifying terrifying. Yeah in your scene partner. Is this fucking gorilla. Beautiful Gorilla in the first scenes are like like the virtually rape scenes right there than I was. Oh Yeah I I. It's only now that I realize how fortunate I was with that because that could have gone many many many many different ways because Jason had experience he was an experienced actor who had done a bunch of stuff before coming onto this this. He's like Sweetie. This is how it's meant to be and this is how it's not meant to be and I'm GonNa make sure that that's a fucking gays so it was always a fucking robe goddamn rope. Oh she was a lot of this is like complete bulls are honesty he was so kind unsought. Yeah and consider it unlike cared about me as a human being was the already with Lisa Bonet. Yes okay number. One of all time Oh does not features. She is probably the most the most extraordinary beauty. Maybe the rounded often. I feel like she's that we're in good. We're an era. Just thing everyone around features savary like how would you describe brown features and I I just you know I like them. Just the ones I like it. so He's already not with her so she thinks she gives him so much like feser. There's a gentleness that she has that's exquisite. Like when you talk to how hi you like. It's just takes your breath away. How kind of magical the is and I have no doubt that a lot of the way that he sees women is is educated from that? Sure I felt that Fisher. So do I have more questions about Jason Momoa now. Okay okay now kit Harrington Donovan Jon Snow yes I'm just going to say his fucking bonds in the lovemaking scene this year. Oh my goodness steel deal. Most Beautiful Buns I've ever seen on ferry sweet I was. I was suspicious that it was a double because they're so perfect. I had to go back frame frame again. There's twelve people watching with us. Sit through me going fucking Ed. Those are his bonds. Yeah he's one of those enigmas right where you just I. He's just like it doesn't need to do that much. And he's just head to toe lucky and he's one of those actors in in real life you like no. Yeah he looks the same dealings giving you passed my God. Yeah no with all respect easy. Mary's and he's married. Jessie okay. All right so we're going to be very respectful about this. But what's very interesting is like you must have watched the show as well right. Yes yes in so. It's interesting as you too. who were watching the show but you were never working with him ever ever I mean what would you meet them at like? The premiers of the season one was like a hope and a wing and a prayer. Yeah and we were all in it together and we would like twenty four hour days and Mike. Everyone was like drunk or tired or whatever it was but it didn't matter because we're all together and it was. It's beautiful and so me kit. Richard Modern Alfie Allen Finn Jones I mean basically they're a bunch of British actors all at the same age so we all found one another Oh and we all got Powells and we stayed pals consistently throughout the whole thing so kit and I've been mates from like back in the day. Okay because I guess I imagine that you guys were in always. We're always in different locations in the same party location. Okay sure you know what I'm saying is in the same one of those locations and they would these times when it would be quite disparate and we would miss each other but so kidnapping Powell's also for a very long time and I am actually best friends with his wife so I met his wife oversee three him and then was like I'm taking a Zuniga..

But you didn't get in there but then when you when you graduated what we would call high school here you then applied to a few different drama schools ones that there were acronyms and I don't know apparently like to to. I'd played to like to because I was sheltered in this boarding school environment. That by the way I was in a `Nigma end like I was the not wealthy kids very wealthy school right.

And then you've got someone whose parents spent all of their money on sending you to that school because they thought they were giving you the best option that you had and you came from a very middle class but were you embarrassed by the fact that you didn't have money like they did well. Yeah and it was more like what kind of school well does and what we have is that like you end up coveting a status. That is completely forever out of your reach because you're not allowed right. Not Your family doesn't go back generations of being like Henry the eighth. Yeah so when people tonight head right we read about that like Sir. Anthony Hopkins was knighted. Right right so he he wasn't from that class or he would have just been one. No I say that I mean you can yet. That being knighted on your merit of what you've provided. Why did England with as completely away from the class structure that you bought into but it can really fuck people up will carry on like so? Let's say that Sir Anthony Hopkins has some children. He children whatever then carry this title. Are they know things. It's its own Thang Monica's GonNa check check that'd be a fun one actually. Yeah Okay so what you did. They'll get into the drama centre of London. Yes yes indeed. You love immediately ask you did that was I. saw first time round. I applied to like to because I wasn't in the acting world but I wanted to be an actor for like two years old because your debt. You would go to the theater with your dad. He's sure yes uh-huh yes I loved it. I loved it the magic or I watched a lot of TV or which lower film what was kind of obsessively into acting. And all that could bring and then was like one of my team School and so then kind of thought I would just happen. And then realize that. I'd been in very academic environment. That wasn't baby very arena of like people who wanted to draw school so all of my excuses to why didn't get anywhere the fuss around and then the second round applied to every drama school. I know he was on the wait. Wait list of the one which center and a Goldberg Collegue and I go to L.. Thank goodness thank goodness we think about because I read that from three three years old. We blew by one thing that I forgot to say. You have eleven names. Move into this name. Amelia Isabelle you. Femi Ah correct well done rose Clark wjr names guru soup indecisive indecisive parents your family like is that all the females in your family. Yeah was so. I was called something else for ages and then they decided on a media. Because I didn't look old enough to be cooled Isabelle's my name okay. They figure I mean. It's a newborn child. Isabel was I think my grand someone on my Dad's side Euphemia was my grandmother's actual name. We call to Fi fi cool I love it. Yeah rose I think was on my Dad's side light but yet they just couldn't decide cramps probably wanted more kids than we lost one so you graduated in two thousand nine yes right you say that and it sounds right. Okay yes by the time you audition. For Game of thrones two thousand ten. You've done like a dozen plays. You are in a soap opera in London. I definitely didn't do a dozen plays. I did a dozen part time jobs. Yes an advocate Anna Terrible TV movie. Yeah so I'm just kind of setting the stage aged for what a wonderful leap forward economy. It was right thanks. I mean granted. You're still quite young at that time. 'cause you audition when you're twenty four I think for game of thrones twenty-three And your audition which is not what we probably would've imagined right. You did a bunch of weird stuff. Yeah we'll see. The first audition was is with Nina's costing assistant Robert so Nina. Gold cost thrones. Robert was her right hand man and I think he's now gone on to do his he's fabulous and it. It was mean rubber in a little room with a camera and the scene and he was probably the reason why half the people who are on games joined he reads so well done an additional additionally goes someone who's just like reading it yes it was like he wanted to do to get it anyway so we do this and it gets central to David and Dan rea cool cool and I meet David. Dan Carlin Strauss and frank soldier in a little room in Soho and I do the thing for them And then about a week goes by and then they're I like in three weeks. We'd like you to come to La we will fly business class. He goes weapon a hotel.

Oh this is just a gopher see movies all the meetings up in these big cinema rooms that makes cents. Yeah so Harry was there and yeah and I was there in the face recognized with three faces. David Donovan and frank you did the scenes but then you ended up doing a bunch other weird shit. Yeah well because before Hun Franken taking me aside and listened sweetie. There's going to be things that they might ask you to do outside of just doing the scenes and I'm like okay cool. Oh my God. What does that mean and he was like as cool? Everything's fine. I just want you to be aware might ask some questions they might bub-bubba. Just be be prepared. It's all good little. Did I know that they were gunning for me to have. Hbo Sign off on me. Because I was a complete total like it was a complete gamble so I was kind of going in with their hopes as well as my own and so at the end I was just so nervous and just so scared addressed up.

"But he said that well even flatter gets proved wrong, I accept that. Like, I know that NASA has never been to space because he believes that NASA has been lying and he believes he seen the evidence for that. And then will if that gets proven to him than I I suspect that they'll say, well, we know the moon landing at least was faked because it can always notch down to the conspiracy just below and hold onto that is like, well, maybe this was wrong. But at least I had good reason to believe it because this was right. And like that step down. I think will be I think it will look like that. It'll be slow like that. And they'll go down and down notching. And Finally, I asked all three Daniel j Clarke, Nick hander, Caroline Clarke. What they hope people will take away from the film. I think that conspiracy theorist that watch my projects are generally disappointed with the film because it doesn't go and tell the proof that they talk about. But I think that's because I make these films for. People like me who don't believe in those conspiracy theories, but might encounter those people a need to understand how to communicate with them, and how to effectively hopefully, make change with those people so something with behind the curve that I hope audiences. Takeaway is that was his human psychology. We all believe things that are maybe not based totally an evidence or we just assume things, and so it's important to understand that flatter Thor's. Are not unique and that the psychological principles. We bring up in the film are human behaviors that apply to all of us. So in the end of the film, we hope that you reflect on the things you believe and examine why you believe what you believe. I want people to walk away from this thinking. How am I like them? What do I what do I do? How do I think that might be a rational what shortcuts? Do I take in my thinking, and what am I trying to justify by cherry picking evidence? Or by starting at the conclusion and working backward. As opposed to having an honest, accounting of this particular belief in asking myself, wait a minute. Why why is this something I believe? Yeah. And to to go, I agree with all these points. So far. But also, I'm sure pretty much everybody has someone in their life. That is a conspiracy theorist to some degree or another even politically religiously fanatical, and it's a way to understand where they're coming from and to hopefully, better engage in not write someone off and not kick someone out of your life because you don't agree with them or you feel like they're unreachable. Because I don't think that's necessarily true. And so, you know, that's a lofty hope, but I hope that this just next people able to have or allows people to have a conversation with people. They don't agree with At at all. all. That is it for this year. Not so smart

"So because quote, you haven't developed empathy to be able to see from their point of view to see where they are getting stuck. Here's Daniel j Clarke into gander with an update on what happened after filming. Yes. Speros from our film as he met a lot of flyer Thor's when the Los Angeles film festival premiere film. He agreed to meet up with some people later, and he did he actually sat down with a group of flatter for about two hours twice twice. He did this and they had a lot of questions, and he was very he didn't put them down. Anyway, he was very open to their thoughts of. Oh, that's an interesting thought. Here's my experience. And here's why this there's scientific community doesn't believe that to be true. Or here's why the scientific community sees this as being like the distance of the sun and all that stuff. And so I don't think any mines were necessarily changed, but they definitely appreciated his outreach and his his willingness to sit with them and not ridicule them and not belittle them in the process. And the reason why I think that's valuable to even have no minds were necessarily changed in, you know, immediately is the fact that it's very easy for conspiratorial communities in particular to sort of other people to say, well, there's this vast. Class of people making all the decisions in the in the world that I don't have access to this. I don't understand their motivations. And it's easy for me to think of them as malicious or think of like any evidence coming out of maybe the the greater scientific community. Well, you know, there's some, you know, malicious motivation behind that. And yet like we were saying earlier when you meet someone, and you can interact with them, and you can with them. It sort of removes your ability to other people in that way, you can form connections. And if you can form a connection with a really high level scientists, I mean spirited a quantum physicist at Caltech. And you can see that like, he's genuine. He's sincere. He he genuinely wants to communicate. You know, why the scientific community thinks then it opens you up over time. I think to accepting evidence from the sources it makes you understand that there is no malicious intent behind. There. You know, anything that they say, it's just. Yeah. A misunderstanding. I guess. And here's something else. That's a prize me. The director Donal j Clarke doesn't believe that the flat earth community will last. I honestly do think it's going to fade away flutters community. But I wonder in ten years if Mark and Patricia watched this film again, Bob watches, it about the Giro experiment. I wonder what their feelings are going to be looking back on themselves making these decisions that now they don't hold to anymore along those lines we discussed how people exit conspiracy communities, and what typically happens is that people step down a ladder of beliefs. One justification at a time until they can reasonably justify to themselves and others that accepting they are wrong and parting ways with the core. Believe what make them seem foolish for believing in the first place. They told me that one flower at their in particular. Jaren Campanella seems to be working his way down that ladder already. Yeah. We actually have. I've heard somebody's exit strategy kind of. Away. Because Jaren forget it was in an interview with us or maybe in one of his videos, but he was talking about stern likes to say. He's the guy who did the laser experiments. He likes to say things like, well, if it's proven wrong, then it's wrong, and I'll move on. And there's been a few things actually where he's like he'd mid that the globe model of the clips works, and it makes sense. Whereas a lot of other flattery future trying to say it didn't. So he's shown in the -bility to accept things like that, maybe more so than others to a certain extent..
