No question is a dumb one. Call me right now, With all of your financial questions. This is an open line addition. Of the broadcast. Give us a call with all of your financial questions. So What's going on. In the world today of finance, So we're going to talk about inherited IRAs in the 10 year rule. There was a major change. In tax law with the Secure act. Also, congressional lawmakers worries Trump's payroll tax deferral work will hurt Social Security. You also have inherited IRAs in the 10 year rule. The Fed Patty Dom.

Whatever question you have. No question is a dumb one except the one that you do not ask. So call us. Right now. It's a lot we wanna talk to you about. So the slot report we got beneficiary forms. An argument could be made that the easiest financial documents a complete is the IRA beneficiary form. Yet Somehow this basic information continues to get overlooked. Mishandle lost her fouled up. It's not rocket science. Don't complicate things. Keep it simple. If you can. Case in point, an attorney drafted a fancy addendum to a beneficiary form with all the necessary legalese. An important letter head. And flourishing signatures. So interesting. Now The addendum named John Doe's wife as the primary irate beneficiary and their three adult Children as contingent. Is the other thing. Why are you going on a turning for simple beneficiary matters? Here's the thing. I'm going to give you the poor man's will in a little bit. Pretty straightforward but then things one side with the following line was added above the names of the contingent. Beneficiary if John Doe pre decease his wife, Jane Doe. Than the contingent beneficiaries. Shall receive the following pale percentages and the document listed those numbers. Wait a minute. If John Doe pre decease is his wife, shouldn't Jane get 100% of the IRA? As the named primary beneficiary. The line was written backwards. It should have read if Jane Doe pre decease is John Then the contingent beneficiaries shall receive their percentage payouts. Had this a denim in existence. At the time of John's death, it's a literally could have been challenged. Not only was it written on something other than the custodians, actual beneficiary form But the information contained in the single page document was completely contradictory. In part one mom Jane. Was primary beneficiary of deads. I write In part to the adult Children would oversee the assets if they had died for Mom, huh? So we're going to go into beneficiary tips, but keep it simple. You need When you do your beneficiary form. I'll explain some tips if you want to make it. Or exotic later, but we're going to go to the phone lines and we got Do we have? Joyce, Go ahead. You're on with Josh Zelinski, the financial quarterback. Hi, Josh. I'm going about I'm retired. And I have on my work for an insurance company. And you know they had a 401 K. But then later on, they allowed Tio open up a Roth and I did. But that was like later in the game. So I called the company that is holding my money. You know, the mutual fund company and I wanted to see about switching. The 401 k part, which is like 80% of the value into the Ross knowing I would take it attacks hit, but I'm willing to do that. I just wanted to gradually move into it. So he checked the plan, And he said that I wasn't able to do that. Is there another way that I can get that for a one k into a raw? Somewhere. Well, one option If your custodian is not complying is get it out of the mutual fund company. Make it an IRA of your choice. So we could help you at Fidelity, and you just make your Roth you do a partial Roth conversion. You should be able to do that. At your custodian. I don't know why they're not, you know? Yeah, yeah. Yeah, I I I was going to just graduate like this year Take out a little. And then next year, take out a little, you know, because we don't know in the future. What's gonna happen with the taxes? So, but he said he looked up the plan. Of course. You know you're talking to somebody. Maybe they don't know, you know, But OK, so you say, Take it out of the hole for a one K. And then moving into an IRA. If you are separated from service, or you're right over 59 a half or your plan. I don't recommend anyone do a roll over without first doing a console today. Did 89 today, Josh, there could be fees taxes involved. We do a due diligence call before you do it. Just to make sure they're not. There aren't any booby drafts. But generally speaking, if your 401 k plan does not allow you to convert You take the 401 K rolling into an IRA of your choosing. Use the fine institution like We use fidelity often, or interactive brokers with relationships. You know, E trade. There's a lot of different options. But then you within one sits in IRA. So how much is in the 41 K. Total is 100,000. Okay? And I have around 20 in the Roth and the rest is in the regular for one K. Okay, So if you have 200,000 how much you and you want to raw 40 grand a year, something like that, or 20 grand a year. You bring it over as an IRA, And then once it's an IRA fidelity, you just We just we can help you. You know when we do we're doing in plan conversion. It's called Incrementally. OK, right. That's what I wanted. Todo avoid high taxes or why I don't want to do it all once. Probably right. Yeah, this way. I figured by the time the you know, after Trump's out, who knows what's gonna happen?.

2020 MLB playoffs: Wild-card standings
"What a wild wild. Ride of a major league baseball season like unbelievable they got this thing in somehow someway was obviously a sprint Nada marathon like we're used to. But with that being said, there is a marathon of a Finnish coming on the final day of the regular season with forty four different scenarios as to what could happen for the twelve teams that still hanging in the balance of whether or not they're going to be in the postseason. It's. Pretty interesting to be honest with you John I mean one of those. Unbelievable seasons that we didn't really necessarily even see happening. It does happen I haven't necessarily been all that excited that into it but forty four scenarios regular seasons wild final day of the season that that's gotta be somewhat intriguing to people right? Yeah quite frankly I didn't realize it was that many I guess that that probably includes. The American League seating possibilities because they're the eight teams in the American League. We all know which teams are going to be in there now and only Tampa Bay number one in Houston number six of actually confirmed their exact seating spots. The others are all over the map depending on what happens today and in the National League only the top four seats are actually confirmed as being in the spots that they are currently and. And then we've got to other teams that are qualified and then there's fourteen in the National League competing for the last two wildcard spot to number seven and number eight seed. So I didn't realize it was forty four. That probably takes into account the combinations of of seating changes that may take place in today's games from today's games in the American league. In terms of teams actually getting in. It's down to four teams in the National League playing for two spots, and now we may not even know today if that is. The final situation because. depending on what happens today the cardinals may have to travel to Detroit on. Monday to play two games that were postponed earlier in the season because of the cardinals cove in nineteen situation. So frankly, it might be Monday be before we know which eight teams are in in the National League. Yeah it's it's been a very short sample size It's been a sprint rather than a marathon but to your point a bit of a marathon finishing that a huge number of combinations and. I was trying to figure it out this morning and I think I've kind of got it down as than in the National League as to how this may shake out I see four or five major combination. So if my brain is working correctly though those all things can happen but a lot of it's dependent on whether the cardinals have to play those two games in Detroit on Monday.

Phillies owner John Middleton questioned after deciding to fire Gabe Kapler
"Last year. Hindsight's great, but it wasn't hindsight. John Middleton at the news conference last year when Hey, fired Gabe Kapler, and this is self explanatory, and let's hear John When you fired Ruben Amaro, you said it's a results based business, right? Gabe Kapler took the hit. And I'm wondering why it was just Gabe Kapler. And I, among other people are wondering why this and I like both Matt and Andy. Why those two gentlemen are sitting with you today after what you've done, so I'm gonna ask you a question. How are you going to give you some stats? The question is this You tell me what part of this organization isn't better today and really substantially better today than it was four years ago when they came So that's a little minor league system and I see since match drafted I believe you have two players that made the major leagues and Kohler bring this year and hazily. So outside of that, I'm wondering there's a feeder system. Other teams have injuries and they've overcome them. The Phillies couldn't and I don't think it was all games for, but I realized the decision had to be made. But what did he have to support him? From your draft picks. So happened Let me I've got the bullpens IRA, but to answer your question in the second half of the season, particularly from the trade deadline on Howard Isn't it? The fourth highest for the best bullpen? You're a in baseball. So this kind of sit there and say that covered was bears is not true, because if that's the case, then what about the other 2016? The worst bullpen. The cupboard was bare. Look at the bullpen this year. I love the way McClintock and he looked at Macklin Tak when he said that he fed him all these stats. Two roll out during this news conference. That's a joke. The bullpen the fourth best from July on well, this season doesn't go from July 1, and that's It was, it was a mirage. It was a joke to defend him and then animate failure says Well, we have three players in the top 100 baseball in the minor league system. There's 30 teams. That's barely an average. The Braves had five in the top 64. So let's go. Let's move on. So this week, McClintock and this is beautiful, too. This is a joke. God, let's go with McClintock. Um I am really proud of this team the way that they have overcome Not only the cove it issues early in the year, but more recently, the way the guys have stepped up to overcome some of the injuries that we've had Andi put themselves in a position this week to control their own destiny on DH Make a push for October. Um, that's probably The biggest thing for me, Bob is that I'm proud of the way this group is handled it. There's been, um, you know again, there been many challenges, most of which you've written about, but Just to see guys. Come up from the system and contribute to see the way that No nap and March John have performed in Jae Hee's absence to see The way that bone has been able to slide over from third to first security downs from 2nd 3rd to help us navigate. Reese is injury. Um, you know the way that Kodiak come up and got a couple of big plate appearances for us. I'm sure I'm missing. Jo Jo and Brandon have taken down beginnings the last couple of weeks. I think that's the thing I'm most proud of with. This group has been really rallied around the next man up mentality and put themselves in a good position heading into the final week. It's a joke. It's a joke I spin. He is the new spin doctor, Philadelphia. They've navigated through the Kobe. So is every other team. The Cardinals are still in it, and they had 11 doubleheaders. The Marlins had to sit in a hotel room for over over seven days, and they're in the playoffs. I don't want to hear about navigating through it. I don't want to hear about injuries. The Braves lost at one time or another, Every one of their five starters. They lost Freddie Freeman at the beginning of the year. They lost a kuna. I mean, it's a joke to you to say, Oh, yeah way injuries and bone moves from third to 1st 1st is probably his natural position and sugar goes from 2nd and 3rd. He started the season at third. It's been It's nonsense, and Jo Jo You know, coughed it up the last two outings. Stop stop. They actually got a break The way Hoskins was hitting that those things happened in their offense, maybe became a little bit better in five years. He's got one player to show for it. One player And that's Alec. Bone. One player
UN General Assembly: US-China tensions flare over coronavirus
"Pandemic is a test of international cooperation. One, the U. N secretary general says the world is failing is NPR's Michelle Kellerman reports that failure Was on display at the ongoing General Assembly. The secretary general is trying to use this virtual General Assembly to get countries to work together to fight the pandemic and many other global challenges. But one Security Council debate showed just how hard this will be. You know shame on each of you. I am astonish, and I'm disgusted. That's the U. S ambassador to the U. N. Kelly Craft accusing her colleagues, though not naming, which ones of playing politics with covert 19 members of the council who took this opportunity to focus on political grudges rather than the critical issue at hand. My goodness Craft defended the Trump administration's decision to pull out of the World Health Organization and said China should be held to account for quote, unleashing this plague onto the world. China's Ambassador John Joon, says the US is just trying to blame others for its own failings. The United the States has been spread in political virus on this information. And for 18 confrontation on division. Up to that point, it had been a rather dry Security Council meeting about global governance in the wake of covert 19. There was a lot of talk about multilateralism and a few veiled swipes at the Trump Administration's America first approach, Kraft said. The U. S has given you n agencies $900 million to counter the pandemic and compared that to others on the Security Council. NYU's year 4.6 million South Africa 8.4 million Indonesia five million. The US does give more to the U. N than other, says Richard Gallon of the International Crisis Group. But this is not just about money. Foreign diplomats had grown accustomed to trump attacking. Yuen arrangements like the Paris climate deal on mechanisms like the Human Rights Council. But they were genuinely shocked the Washington would walk away from the W. H O during a global pandemic. Speaking via Skype, he said diplomats are worried about what he calls a nasty fight between the US and China as Beijing tries to increase its influence in the world body on a day to day basis, Chinese diplomats in New York are often Very assertive, increasingly hard line and sometimes bullying colleagues from smaller countries. The reality is that for most members of the U. N, neither the US nor China Is offering an attractive vision of the future of multilateralism and the world needs multilateral solutions on a range of issues beyond the pandemic, says Latisha Courtois, who represents the International Committee of the Red Cross. She's raising the alarms about the forgotten conflicts from Yemen to this, the hell region of Africa has a triple threat of climate conflict and called it mansions. And for that they need to be a collective approach. The U. N Secretary General Antonio Guterres made the same appeal all week, reminding diplomats that the World Sol a previous period of fragmentation a century ago. The result was the first World War. Followed by the seconds. Over. 19 is casting a dark shadow across the world. And he called the band eh Mika warning that must spur US toe action. Michelle Kelemen. NPR news, the State Department

Trump and Biden to face off in first 2020 presidential debate
"When President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden T up for the first presidential debate of the election season. Let's head to our Bloomberg 99 1 newsroom in Washington and Bloomberg's Amy Morris Amy All right. Thank you, John. The candidates are set to face off Tuesday at case Western University in Cleveland debates going to run about 90 minutes without commercials. Let's take a look at some of the topics the techniques And just how this will work in the middle of a Corona virus pandemic. Bloomberg's politics reporter covering the 2020 campaign, Ryan Teague, Beckwith joins me now with some insight, Ryan. It is a pleasure. Thanks so much for taking the time with us. Any time. Now, as we know President Trump has his own debate style. So let's take a look at how the president is going to be taking on his debate. Opponent. Yeah, one thing that Trump has always done after be appearances even before he got into politics. Is re watch them with the sound off and I think that's kind of a good way of understanding how he approaches. He does not use this as much as a contest of ideas or a chance to get his message out as it as a very physical act. If you recall from the 2016 debate for Hillary Clinton, he was often sort of physically looming over her. He was taller than her obviously and brought her shouldered, But he sort of cases the The debate stage almost like a Mexican wrestler or something, he he very much wants to control the physical space, and that was a very different thing when he was up against Hillary Clinton. Then it will be with Joe Biden. So we have not yet seen the two of them really in the same physical space. Much at all other than the inauguration, So that will be really interesting thing to watch. Are we going to see them in

How I Built Resilience: John Zimmer of Lyft
"We I spoke with John back in two thousand seventeen but now fast forward a few years and like most of us John is dealing with challenges he never anticipated. But when we spoke a few days ago, he sounded pretty optimistic. Personally, I'm doing okay I. Think you know the business has had a tough time but has seen some really strong recovery since the bottom? We were down about seventy five percent at the peak. In terms of rideshare rides, we now return to little. Half. down. which is actually good progress. We've always been a very long term minded company. We've had hard times before we've always been the challenger brand, and so actually I think moments like this are opportunities for us in our team to shine and so happy to share some of that with you. Yeah I WANNA I wanNA talk about that. Let's let's first talk about like kind of drill down to some of the challenges i. There's no question that this has to be the most challenging time in your you know in your leadership of lift I think it's the most challenging time for any business leader founder around the world today for variety of reasons and as you mentioned, it's been a tough year four left to have some layoffs in May I think about thousand. Layoffs which could not have been easy for you to go through. So as you began to see the pandemic having a significant impact on on your business, what kinds of conversations were you having with your your leadership team with your co founder Logan about ways to kind of begin to to build resilience? What are the conversations that we've had or one of the challenges throughout is how many different audiences groups of people that were working to take care of throughout this right so we have our drivers, we have our riders, we have our employees. With an employee's, there's those that are working in person to help drivers at Parisian centers and there are those that could work from home. So all different populations that we want to take care of. Investors as well who who are judging those decisions we make. So I think that's been a really interesting conversation also the conversations around short term thinking versus long term thinking there are short term decisions we need to make in order to preserve the long term mission that we have as a company. In. Those have been really key decisions. You talked about the dot was very, very difficult. It forced us to make hard decisions some of which I think actually. In hindsight were very healthy for the business but very difficult to make especially for people that are all in this tough time where where the market is difficult those were not easy decisions. Let's talk about some of the short term decisions that you had to take. I mean you are publicly traded company So you're obviously countable to investors and it's everything's on the table you have to review can't hide anything first of all, just to keep the business operating and to. Get. You through this time because this is going to be a challenging year and maybe a recovery next year for you we'll talk about that a moment but you knew this was going to be a tough year. So was one of those decisions to retain as much cash on hand was that one of the initial decisions that you had to take? Yeah obviously. So we look at the cash that we have on hand. We also raised our first debt to add cushion. Quite, a strong position where lucky that we went public when we did. Have a you know near nearly three billion dollars in the bank. What we did to start as we ran all different scenarios we said Okay if we were seventy five percent down for six months or two quarters, you know what would the situation be like for cash if we were down, you know for four quarters what would it be like for cash? We ran the the worst case scenarios, the medium case scenarios and the best case scenarios, and then made the decision that you know raising the debt was kind of a no regrets move but then also to your point preserving the cash that we do have on hand. Making decisions about expenses that we had in the office that were more of a luxury making decisions around certain teams. That we needed to tighten up for example, on on the operating side there were some markets where we had to close some of our centers. What are you finding out from users like why what is what is it? That is preventing them from using lift? Is it basically that they just don't have anywhere to go or is it? Is it the fear of being car with somebody else? It's a mix of both you know. I I think it's people changing their transportation behavior, their actual transportation behavior, and then secondarily It's obviously the questions around health safety and I'd love to walk through what we're doing on on that end as open. The APP we ask both driver and rider to confirm that they're wearing a mask. We ask driving rider confirmed that they haven't been in contact with anyone has covert, and we ask everyone to keep their areas clean and open. Windows if possible. So that's gone a long way. If you zoom out actually the fact that half as many rides are being taken now as before I'm actually quite happy within a strange way because I know many people that are they're not going into the office that's a huge change in transportation. So the fact that one out of two rides are still present even in this environment show some flexibility in the model because we've seen different. Types of rides we've seen a lot of essential workers using this way more because there are other options. Potentially public transportation are things that they're more concerned about from a health safety perspective,
Sell Me Your Climate Bombs
"Okay. So there are countless outdated old refrigerant tanks scattered around the country and Tim and Gabe say that the problem is you cannot just dump these tanks in the trash you wanted to take it to a dump, their knocking ticket they'll say, no, no that stuff's like hazardous material we don't want here. Material. The only thing you're allowed to dump, there is the empty tank when it's all gone. So you're really stuck it sits there on your shelf you have no use for and it's eventually going to leak through these cylinders cans into the atmosphere. If you're a professional like an auto mechanic or an H. back installer or if you're just one of those tinkers who hangs out at autozone, you might have one of these bad band canisters and. You could pay to safely dump the chemical out, but only a few places in the US will even do it and it's expensive. That's why they're canisters of this stuff just sitting in old garages rusting away and leaking leaking a greenhouse gas that is thousands of times more potent than carbon dioxide and getting rid of refrigerant is one of the most important things we can do to address climate change according to a leading climate solutions organization called drawdown. which is why Tim, and Gabe have come all the way to the gas station in middle of Nowhere Illinois to meet a man in a red jeep renegade named Geoffrey. Geoffrey. Geoffrey is standing next to a two foot tall canister refrigerant that people might recognize by its common name Freon. Jim In fact recognizes the brand name Dupont igloo. So what does this is? igloo Freon twelve. So where did you What did you find the material? Jeffrey says a friend gave it to him years ago Kim asks him if he was in the Business Jeffrey no but my friend was he said he got the refrigerant because he figured maybe he'd use it in the systems of antique cars that he was thinking about rebuilding, but he never got around to it. Nineteen years. Business on shelf shop. How did you hear US oft up on my facebook one day At this out of the blue, a facebook ad popped up that said, we pay good money for old refrigerant Jeffrey. I have some of that answered the Ad, and now here we are Tim and Gabe take a sample from Geoffrey. They do a couple of calculations where they add up the weight of all the refrigerant and have Geoffrey signs informs you're signing here that your. This is your material. Now you're handing over to us. You're also a test saying that it was sourced within the United States and not the US government or a native American tribe. Correct correct. Okay. And then gables out a wad of bills and starts flowing them one by one into Jeffrey's hand. Material. So. Shop. The Money. Except for the signing of the receipt and everything, it feels almost like a drug deal cash transaction in this dusty remote middle of nowhere. Tim wouldn't tell US exactly how much changed hands but he said it was in the low hundreds and yet this is Tim Gabes legitimate business. Their company is called trade water and they make pickups like this of all sizes from a one pound can the size of a spray paint bottle tweet forty, thousand pound job they did a while back where they vacuumed the refrigerant out of an old industrial cooling system after a bit of Chitchat Tim and Gabe wrap up with Geoffrey Geoffrey tells them. If he hears anyone else with spare refrigerants, he'll send them their way. Right on. Jeffrey how is that? That was painless was. Is If you find anymore you know where to call welcome you John Here In Europe somebody's got one of the. Transaction. Takes care. Did you hear that Tim just said we'll take good care of it for you. Yeah. Well, me and my how to Save Planet Co host we're listening in on this deal. Of course, we're on facetime with them and my co host name is Hannah Elizabeth Johnson. She's a scientist and she and I asked him and Gabe about that particular comment and you said we'll take good care of this for you. Because you you aren't GonNa take good care of it. You'RE GONNA destroyed. Exactly. Probably not We, don't really. We don't really talk about that very much. Yeah. They transfer all the gas from the little tank they collect into a huge tank that looks kind of like a missile and then they drive that missile looking tank to a fancy destruction facility. Essentially, an incinerator permited hazardous waste. Rotary, King Incinerator. So you burn it we burn you burn. Your like setting it on fire and we are. Do you see gas in flames? Is that what it looks like? We don't generally watch it being burned. View, it's see to their view window flame. Yeah.

Ava Movie Review : Jessica Chastain powers this moderately thrilling assassin saga
"I'm Madeleine brand. I am ready to review some films of two of my favorite favorite critics and two of my favorite humans all time alongside early and Dave White film critics for the rap and host of the podcast, Linoleum knife. How you guys Hello. All right. Let's talk first about Eva. Jessica Chastain stars as international assassin, but a job goes wrong. Here is some of the trailer. I know you like Eva. She's a liability. No, she's best to breathe. I recruited her trainers talking She's always been jukes favor, but she's a loose cannon and dangerous of the organization. Alonzo. What did you think so? Yeah, this is, you know, typical international assassin and runs afoul of the corporation. And of course, she must be closed. Um, why is it that only the female international assassins also have family issues, whereas the male international assassins were always completely cut off from their own feelings and from their own families of their own pasts and all that stuff. Really The most interesting stuff about Eva is that a bow, played by Jessica Chastain comes home to Boston, where she has to confront her fractured relationships with her sister, played by just Wexler and her mother, played by Gina Davis. On Of course, Gina Davis was an international female assassin in the long kiss. Good night, so that's a nice little Bow on this, and the scenes between Gina Davis and Jessica Chastain are so crackling in a Confrontational, dysfunctional family cannot away that you kind of wish this had been a confrontational, dysfunctional family movie and not international Super Assasin movie. But I mean, it's a lot of that movie is has been made. It's called What ever happened to Baby Jane? Good points, But I mean, you know the The pieces in this are not bad, like the actual international Super assassin scenes are pretty well done. There's some pretty good action sequences. Maybe Not in like an atomic blonde kind of way. But still like when. When Jessica Chastain gets into a scrap with Colin Farrell or, you know, I mean, John Malkovich even gets into some violence in this movie. Those scenes are kind of fun, but then you gotta shift gears into Ava and her addictions and her family stuff, and it's like The movie is in all the lanes and it doesn't really ever quite nail any of them. So I maybe wish they had. They had taken off one piece of jewelry before leaving the house, you know, either lose one of reds here, Dave. Moments of cool, stabbing and kicking. Alleviating boredom. Unfortunately, they missed this golden opportunity to allow Gina Davis To be revealed. To still be her long kiss Goodnight character, passing the mantle of super assassin. Down to her daughter that they did They do this. They did not do this. Unfortunately, if you're going to make a movie with a plot, as wrote, and by the numbers as this You got to juice it up somehow, You know, it's not. It's not enough that the Jessica Chastain isn't a long red gown. You know, stabbing and kicking and shooting. Okay,

Structuring Your Novel by K.M. Weiland
"Hi Welcome to season two, episode thirty, two of the rookie rider show I'm your host Air Brown and today we're GONNA be talking about structuring your novel by Cam Weiland. A little about Cam Weiland I'm going to quote her author page here. Km, wiling lives in make believe world's talks to imaginary friends and survive primarily on chocolate truffles and espresso. She is the award winning and internationally published author of the Acclaimed Writing Guides, outlining your novel, stretching your novel and creating character Arcs when she's not making things up she's busy mentoring other authors on her award winning blog she makes her home in Western Nebraska. And Also on the website, she says that you can call her Katie you visitor site and sign up for the newsletter list. You can download a free writing craft book entitled Five Secrets Of Story Structure How to read a novel stands out. In that book while in says, you will learn and again here I'm quoting. Why the inciting incident isn't what you've always thought it is what your key event is and how stop putting it in the wrong seen. How do identify your pinch points and why they can make the middle of your book easier to write and how to ace your stories climactic moment every single time end quote. If you haven't already, I would also urge you to check out wildlands podcast helping writers become authors. Which incidentally is also the inver website, the website itself is very easy to use and chock full of free resources like the aforementioned book. No surprise that has been listed on writers digest one a one best websites for writers every year since two, thousand, fourteen finally for today's Title I would suggest that you consider checking out the accompanying workbook for what it's worth I got the digital version of the book and the physical copy of the workbook. So I could easily job. Thought at them but you do you. Okay. Down to business. Here are my three things number one. Two halves of the same hole wildland reminds us that beginnings and endings are the true heart of your story and that satisfying beginnings and endings mirror each other in some way. Boiling it down to its most essential. She says, quote, the beginning asks a question and the ending answers it and quote, and the ending must answer that specific question or according to island. The whole book will feel, okay number two, the two big types of questions. While you will have a specific question that you need to answer, there are two main types of questions, plot questions and theme questions. I'M GONNA. Use examples from Wilde's book to illustrate the difference between these two types. Okay. Question example this is quoting your book will margie stop her self destructive lifestyle of drugs and liquor before she loses her soul mate Tom Forever, and that's a question, the question and I'm GONNA use the same scenario the example would be will margie. Find self worth or piece. Okay. A couple of notes here. I novels often have both a plot and Athene question. In fact, I would say they almost always do secondly, no matter what type of question it is while end advises that should be a question that can be answered with yes or no by the okay. A dare note if you write more literary works and ending that leaves people debating whether it was a yes or no can be a huge win. Examples of this include doubt by John Patrick Shanley and state of wonder by an Patchett. But for most books, you want people to have a clear idea about the answer to the question. Yes or no so I think she's right there. Okay. Number three, the end. Despite, the fact that while end isn't enthusiastic plotter planner. And strongly advises outlines obviously, she still writes several endings. This leads us directly to today's quote this her quote thanks to the ever important outline. I never begin a novel without knowing how I want it to end and yet I almost always write three or four endings before I find the correct one stories even intricately outlined ones evolve as we create them the nuanced ending we have in mind at the beginning might no longer be appropriate once we reach it and quote while offer strategies for coming up with different endings, things like using Beta readers setting aside temporarily. But she also reminds you and here comes a bonus quote quote in many ways endings are one of the most fun parts of the process by then all the puzzle pieces are available to play with. You know your characters inside out and you've got a pile of one hundred pages or more to prove that you can do this. So enjoy yourself if more than one ending is necessary have fun playing with the options and take advantage of the opportunity to rebel and your story world just a little bit longer and quote that's cantwell it. Okay today's hack. Is it ever too early while and advises us to put in our question early ideally setting up that question remember a yes. No question whether it's the plot or both from the very first scene doesn't have to be entirely in the first but start that process. From the GECKO okay I hope this was
Buffalo Bills are practicing again
"The Buffalo Bills were back at practice on Thursday and preparations for their matchup this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams, who come to town to take on the bills in a matchup of 22 and Oh, team's number of players return to the practice field, including Cole Beasley at Oliver Theron Johnson all after missing Wednesday's practice, however, there were some that did not practice yesterday.

Dawson Knox still dealing with a concussion, and Dal Shaun Phillips did not practice for a second straight day, as well that Milano, Tremaine Evans and John Brown were all involved. In practice.
CarMax profit, revenue rise above expectations
"CARMAX, second quarter profits and revenue came in much higher than expected. And the last time I checked the stock. It was down twelve percent. I was surprised by this because this was a really good quarter for Carmax I didn't see anything in their guidance to indicate that the next three to six months is going to be particularly perilous. Yeah I was also surprised they beat expectations revenue was up three point three, percent five, point three, seven, billion earnings were up percent last quarter they had implemented cost savings they had furloughed fifteen thousand workers, the CEO Bill. Nash Reduced Salary by fifty percent, they stopped new store openings like you said Chris this this quarter was really good for them. Their sales had bounced back by. Around June, we saw revenue growth, they're hiring seven, hundred, fifty people at their customer experience center they're planning to open stores. Again, the stock is up twenty one percent since the beginning of the year. So I don't know if it's more trying to temper expectations for the future, but it was a solid quarter for them. We've certainly seen that with other companies in other industries where. The come out with, results. They are somewhere on the spectrum of good to great but not. Off John Dropping perfect. And we see a little bit of a off just because you're to date the stock is doing well. I Dunno Carmax. I've the last vehicle. I bought was from Carmax. A couple of years ago had a very good experience. I would absolutely go back there again because I feel like they have. I don't want to say they have solved a pain point, but they have certainly made a pain point a lot less painful and I'm referring to the process of buying a car which for for most people, it's just trans. Actually we just want the car that we want and please don't make me go through the whole haggling Kabuki theatre thing because that's just awful. Yeah I have never bought a car I. Don't have a driver's license, but I will say I was I was interested in. How, they might have done in the last recession. So you can see if there are people who are listening economic service. If you look at the demand curve for normal products as income increases the demand for a product increases but with inferior goods are inferior products they do well in a recession because as income decreases demand for this product increases, and since Carmax maxell eighty, five percent of their revenue is used cars. It seems likely that they would be considered an inferior product. So if we see a recession in the future, they would be a company that would do well, and so I looked at. How they did in the last recession, and if you look at the stock from March twenty, two, thousand, eight to September Twenty fifteen, it returned two hundred, four percent compared to fifty percent for the S. and P. Five hundred. So I think looking forward and thinking long term about Carmax if you're thinking about the impacts, the long-term recession impacts of covid nineteen, this might be an interesting to think thing to think about is those inferior products versus those normalized product particularly in urban areas where you're a for people who have the means they're probably to be spending less time getting on subways if they can avoid it. I gotta say inferior goods as a categorization just sounds pejorative that sounds like something that the new auto dealers of America came up with yeah. It's not the nicest term and when you study, they'll say a bus is considered an inferior to car planes kind of insulting. But that is the technical economic term

Too could fill type I. Think. Yeah I like to think of it like meditation to like in Meditation. The idea of just returning your mind wanders, you return return return to this is a lifelong practice. But again, it's not judging yourself when you get into the box to because going to be like I'm in the box again, I'm such an idiot I should know this by now. forgiveness. Forgiveness Monaco. The trust my I struggle with a meditation I was thinking really not good at it. And then. I had some seeing about. The. Practice of meditation. And understood our. Okay. So the fact that my mind wanders it's It's what might do so yep, it will happen so. That's the practice you mind to wander. You will notice it and you will go back to what was your practice day? Yeah. and. Develop that kind of muscle in a way that that helps you to do. It's better, but it will continue to happen. Anyway. That's. But you better not noticing and going back to your practice, and that's the point. Though I think by noticing when you wind books. And noticing the signals detention in the shoulder. Uh or whatever. Physical signal you can. You can feel. That's a good thing. That's a good. Good step fallout and that's that's that's where we are you want to. Speaking in places to go.

I think a lot of this has to do with the of the very serious effects of of the sirens losses. Sasha's which discouraged maintenance what you might Cologne intellectual elite of people who would confident of that the knowledge in their their ability to reason and would therefore able to challenge governments and also. The other thing happened is that politics is not largely needed.

Today's podcast is is instead sponsored by ice bottles ice bottles as long as they have not even slightly melted. You can get through. TSA with them. And this podcast is also brought to you. By the ten foot giant wooden forest ranger inside of the Missoula. International Airport can't can't go through security because it literally wouldn't fit and of course they vodkas a war on the subject of airports is brought to you by airport. Weekly my favorite favorite magazine. Hank I really want to answer this question from Adam who writes dear John and Hank so Bill Gates has like a bunch of money and so so do tons of other people like Elon. Musk my question is could Bill Gates cure cancer gates just donated a billion or even two billion dollars to cancer research within that just cure cancer. He's never gonNA spend that money anyways. Do Billionaires like Bill Gates any on. Musk have the power to solve our biggest problems. And if so why don't day so Adam. This is a great question but the short answer is that no single billionaire has the resources to cure cancer in part. Because we don't really know what the the medical breakthroughs will be. We don't know where to put that Research money most effectively but we know that no single individual has that amount of money me because we spend billions and billions of dollars every year on cancer research and we we make progress. We have made progress a lot of progress in the last twenty years and much more progress in the last sixty years but yeah we play so much weight on these few individuals who do control a ton of wealth wealth. I would argue far too much wealth and I would argue that they have a responsibility to give the vast majority of it back but the truth is that it millionaire's in the United States. Control much more wealth in total then billionaires do and we almost never talk about that because we're so focused on billionaires and what what really drives change in terms of health whether it's you know addressing malaria or HIV or burke yellow sus in impoverished countries trees or or chronic diseases in wealthy ones. What really drives change is public spending and Governments spend much more. You're on research than any individual could and to me. It's really about finding ways to tax. Yeah Corporations Shins and individuals appropriately and then using that money wisely because public money is much bigger and more powerful than even the wealthiest individual Joel. Yeah because people working together are bigger than any one person in. That's like a clear truth. And that's the justification for the existence of government in any case it turns out. Cancer is super complicated. We it is not one disease it is many diseases. oftentimes overlapping with each other. It is many things that go wrong wrong. In order for this one thing to become something that is negatively affecting health that has been an a an ongoing story that has been like a huge bummer for people who who do with this research because it turns out that there is no cure for cancer in there. There aren't even individual cures for individual cancers because each each prostate cancer is slightly lately different from the next and sometimes they involve the same mutations and sometimes they involve ones. We've never seen before so that that nut is particularly difficult to crack crap. Yes however there are easier nuts to crack exactly in HIV and tuberculosis in many diseases. That are preventable. By vaccine's as many diseases that are preventable by having access to clean water and those things there is money out there like the resources are currently available to to save those lives. And we aren't doing. We know exactly how to do it and we aren't and we aren't doing it all right John for more serious question. This one comes from Elisa who says dear Hankins John. I've been wondering are stickers stuck in weird places going to be our civilization's cave art forty thousand years will some teens hiking through the golic let countryside discover an ancient underground cavern absolutely filled with Andre the giant pregnant Harry styles stickers under the right conditions would they still be we like comprehensible and most importantly would they still smell like bananas. Archaeology is cool L. Isis so hank while I was researching scratch and sniff stickers for the anthropology and reviewed. I talked to some chemists about the micro encapsulation technology that allows scratch and sniff stickers to work and from what I could gather it his unlikely. That forty thousand years from now those micro in capsules will still be encapsulating sent. So I don't think are scratch and sniff stickers will work but in the right circumstances couldn't are pregnant Harry style stickers. Still be out there. Yeah Harry styling. Well I think the main thing that you're looking at here is is chemical reactions that are happening and the things that are going to affect that are the internal chemical reactions So if the paper word that the that the sticky stuff is on the paper has some acid in it that acid might diffuse into the sticky stuff and break the sticky stuff down or there might be just like the sticky stuff itself isn't perfectly chemically stable and as the years goes on it will become less sticky but there there is definitely sticky stuff stuff that that won't happen with. I don't know if it's on the backs of any commercially available stickers but but but okay so even if the stickers fall off of this hypothetical okay fall hank imagine teenagers the future like you know unearthing a cave. And I don't care if the stickers are on the on the ground I just care it's still president Harry styles. Yeah if it's dark in that cave and if it's dry in that cave than yeah and also like one of the main drivers of chemical reactions anywhere as oxygen in which is a fairly reactive molecule the best case circumstances if the stickers actually buried in some kind of oxygen denying environment even if future earth that too dark If we kill all the plants that will be a problem. I think the plants will make it with or without out us. I think the plants will make it. It's the motto. Two Thousand Nineteen Hank before we get to the all important news from Mars and AFC see Wimbledon. I want to share with you. A few comments that people wrote in win.

Thank you oh you mean. I could just have a reese's peanut butter cup. I could just have one so you're into what you WANNA do with this money. Is You want to do something very slightly transgressive. Maybe maybe it's like man. I haven't had orange soda in a long time and I would like to have ripe to leaders of Orange Soda or fourteen liters of Orange Soda and you just you go all went. Oh I just. I don't know why I had this idea but I think this is very good. You GotTa go you gotTa Take Your piggy-bank break it open. Go to the cornstarch get that money take that money to the place where they sell plants. And you'RE GONNA buy the most expensive plant you can buy with this so probably a small cactus and then you will take that small cactus and you will leave it on a stranger's doorstep and they will see it and they will think I've been and given a small cactus and then that will inform their entire day possibly week maybe year maybe whole life. This strange cactus that appeared in their life. And you know that you won't know how it affected them you don't know if they just threw it away. Or if they like had to take care of this cactus their whole life but you can think about it and you can know that in that one way you. A stranger have changed that other person a stranger. I like that idea. But I think I would still probably get fudge rounds do of drown and saw I mean just you saying the words drown their taste fudge rounds it was like a Pavlovian response. And I haven't had a fudge around in a solid twenty the years and now I know what I'm doing after we make the podcast but we have to answer this vitally important question from Oran not your son. Although I'm like your son this question made me feel very old dear John and Hank. What are the noises that landlines make when you dial the phone number of like those different pitches for each number? Do they actually mean anything on the teen but I know it a landline. Warren barely weighed wait. Wait all all they know is what a landline is. They don't know. Oh God I mean even growing up. I didn't know at the noises. Were four well so we had a rotary phone when you were very little. Yeah and the rotary phone would make a certain number of clicks depending on what number you dialed in and literally dialed it. Instead of just pushing a button right then that number of clicks would connected to certain other number basically with the advent of touch pad telephones. Yeah they call them touch tone phones they used to. They used used different tones to achieve that same goal. Which is why there were people? When Hank and I were a kid who would they were one kid who would have very good pitch and would basically be able to trick the phone company into dialing whatever number are they wanted to? Yeah and also there were noises that your phone can't make but other phone but like other devices can to talk to the computer and they would figure out how to make those noises that your phone can't make but that influence the computer at. At and T.. Or wherever are and then they would use that knowledge to basically make free long distance calls. Yeah which at the time you WanNa talk about transgressive free long distance calls. Oh my God I mean wow it fell like a whole world was open to you. Yeah I I suspect. Orrin is not familiar with the idea of a domestic long distance. Phone call one eight hundred call. Att Oh man. I dialed one eight hundred call. At a lot and that was the that was the cheap crank. Yeah somewhat low-quality connection so that you could get the discount rate of ten cents a minute. Oh Gosh I had to completely not realized allies until you said it that. Dial when you're dialing a phone we still say that we still say you're going to dial the number but it was because there was a dial yeah like an actual dial. Yeah which reminds me that.

Hey we have a question from Katrina who writes dear John. I was wondering talking about the new youtube policy with children content. Will this impact crash course. I love crash course. It helped me to history in a fun. Way as a ninth grader. Who Oh that's a relief to hear Katrina Lina? 'CAUSE that means you're probably fourteen. I don't think this is necessary. But I'm not a favorite or youtuber. Hurricane Katrina first off Hank I do feel really bad for all the people named Katrina. We should stop naming hurricanes after people. What a horrible idea that was in the first place? Yeah I mean. It's like one thing when the hurricanes named like John on and this is like a lot of things named John Reid toilets you guys got already. I'm sure there's a sandwich called the big John or something. Yeah so that's fine but like when you get to a name that's like fairly common but like not super common like Katrina you every time you hear that name from now on John Yup I. I'm not super super worried about this. For our content Yup crashproof specifically is clearly not something that has made like primarily for the audience of of thirteen year olds so basically for a little bit of context. There is a law in the United States called COPPA or C. O. P. P. A.. I think that basically says that you cannot collect. Data on the Internet inhabits. It's of children. which for the sake of the law is defined as people under the age of thirteen? Isn't that right hank. Yeah that's right that's why you can't create a youtube account as a as a person under the age of thirteen just why there are a lot of people who sign up for you to at the age of thirteen because they're lying and yeah. It's it's always been pretty clear that Youtube Youtube is being used by lots of children under the age of thirteen and and also youtube is known this and Youtube. Has You know been a place for child-friendly filed friendly content but it has not made a lot of efforts to not collect data on the people who are watching those videos now. The big question here is because because like since you can't say for sure whether someone is under the thirteen without asking them and asking them would be collecting data on them. You have to what the FTC has said after giving you a big fine is any content that is specifically made for people under thirteen has to be included. And you can't collect data on those people which affects how you monetize take. It affects comments and like so those videos than won't have comments on them. They won't have won't be in recommendations in the same way etcetera a bunch of different things change and so this is a big concern because a lot of people aren't sure like whether their content counts as four kids like you know maybe it's an animator who is in twenty years old but you know kids really like their content even though it's got a lot of adult jokes or adult themes or it's like about like being being in college or it's about working at subway but is it if it's being watched by a lot of ten year olds does that count as being for ten year olds and so it's fuzzy and it. It is a a source of a lot of stressful out of creators. I'm not worried about it in terms of crash. Course if you pick out like the individual things that people are like I'm really worried because it says any the animated characters not actually with the guidelines. Say They don't say like any animation means your you know under COPPA. It's not it's really. It's a holistic thing they will look at who the continents made for who watches it and in the case of crash course. It's pretty clearly largely people over the age of thirteen And there are some of our channels that like especially literal kids channels that will be covered by KOPPA and that we will have to see how that affects How they grow? Oh and and whether you know they will be sustainable in the future. So we're not worried about crash course but we are sympathetic to people who are worried yeah and whose livelihoods are affected by this. It's complicated. Yeah it's important to have nuance conversations and difficult to have them and to be fair like it's really difficult to have a nuance conversation when someone when tells you one day that you don't have a job anymore so it is something that he creators are having to think a lot about an and and also it's easy did not know exactly what's going to happen because we literally don't which is frustrating. That's the scary part right. Does NATO's income some Taylor who writes what's up John and Hank I'd like to take a steel bottle of frozen Rosenwasser to the airport with me. Oh my God well Taylor.

"Director Jeff Reiner says that when he first met Alex Cunningham conversation focused on the series point of view, and how to transcend the conventions of straight thriller. The normal approach to this material would be thriller where women's looking over his shoulder. And that's not something that outs interested in. We're interested in kind of deconstructing and tone from different points of view, the most striking shift in front of you comes in episode seven, which is told from John man's perspective. Here's Eric Bana. Who plays me hand describing it. We get to see what he was doing for an hour before mating. Deborah on that I that we enjoyed an episode one. We get to see what he was doing just before stealing the drugs that he was ministering to a patient. We get to see how many women he was coaling before he called Deborah the first time on that. You know? So it was a pretty rocus forty idea for an episode that you know, we tried to have some fun with as well. And we realize that for those people. Blue. Embrace the dock Huma that there was a lot in seven. He's he's of a in the middle of the desert being rejected by the women and packing flagger into his pocket and doing drugs, and it's just and we seem lying we say on the fun long to papal one of the things I loved about Savin was Joan being on his I this. And I was one of the things that fascinated me about these. Character was. Which you know, we you allude to a little bit. When you play the the audio from the weddings that he had no Frayn's which really fascinating because some people climb to be lawn bowls climb to be alone as and stuff, but Jones was true Lona in amongst PayPal Reiner. The director told me spent a lot of time thinking about Travis Bickel, the violent loaner from Scorsese's taxi driver Reiner is also a fan of the director Billy wilder and the darkly comic tone. He brought the classic Noir films, like Sunset Boulevard and double indemnity. So totally I had to make sure that there was a sense of humor, which quite alsi. I got from you from your from your the the tone in which you read it. I don't know if it was purposeful or not. But I always felt like there was this slight ironic kind of take the material the real life. John me Han was a conman and a sadist who. Hurt more people than we'll probably ever know a creature of malevolent, so pure, it's hard to think of analogs in my long experience of writing about very bad people, but nobody on the dirty John series thought it would be interesting to portray him as glowering paper machine villain. So he had to be charming in the Ed to be funny in the ETA be even in his evil had to be somewhat funny. Yeah. There is his character. Who might think he's in a Scorsese movie or he might think he's an ultimate villain. And so that will dictate what he says. And what he does, you know, there's a scene where he goes to meet Toby to door and Toby calls him out for being a liar. And I don't have to take four told Eric to eat a sandwich while while he's doing it. So there was this kind of cavalier attitude, you know, when he's telling him, he's kind of tell him all this dark stuff, you know, he's chomping on a sandwich. So to me it just gave. The character like that scene Cillian nonchalance to like his evilness, which makes it even more evil. And but it does make it somewhat darkly funny. So it also he's he's a predator having a meal. Yeah. Well, I never thought of that fanatically. But you're right. I mean, let us film school students or rent that they might get as a.

"For those of you on familiar with the term the show runner is not just the head writer, but the arbiter of thousand production details large and small from casting to costumes, basically, the CEO of a corporation that forms for a few months, and then dissolves Cunningham's first job in the role was the American version of prime suspect. One of the things I loved about the dirty John material was it was actually an opportunity to write a lot of the different kinds of stuff that I've written in my career. There were there's procedural stuff in there law enforcement, procedural stuff. There's obviously the emotional twisted fairy tale version of it, which I always soap seems to be kind of a dirty word in our business. But I actually think any story that has emotional stakes is a soap like I Claudius is a soap saving private Ryan is a soap. Cunningham spent six years writing for desperate housewives, and she sees parallels with dirtyjohn when desperate housewives was good. It had a lot in common with this story. Even though the story really happened in the sense that you know, here's these women and their unemotional roller coaster tight rope. And it's about love, and it's a ballot fear and all the things that this story is about except this really happens. The core of the sopranos the greatest show ever is love and family and murder and fear and all the things that this story has so like because maybe everything goes back to the Greeks. I don't know I I met Alex Cunningham at roscoe's house of chicken and waffles in LA just before she signed on. And from the beginning, we agreed on what I thought was an essential point series was not going to try to explain John me. And it was not going to put them on a couch with Dr Freud in a search for childhood horrors at might serve to mitigate or justify his awfulness. I didn't think of me Hannah's a man wearing a mask that can. Healed a wounded more vulnerable more authentic self. I thought of him as only masks concealing, total emptiness thought of the scene in the invisible man where the hero peels away his bandages, and there's no one there in the writer's room more than once Cunningham made the point that one reason people want explanations for John hen is that it gives them the comforting allusion that he's somehow defendable against people want to have John completely explained. Because of they they think of they know the reasons behind his behavior that will help them avoid a person who behaves like that. Except of course, is you you wouldn't know these things about your John if he came to you, and and tried to do the things to you that John did two women, you wouldn't know any of those things about that person. So it really wouldn't help you. I will feel sorry for you up until the point where you injure someone else. When you weaponize what happened to you? And so that was that was. Important to me to not feel like that's what we were doing is trying to elicit any sympathy for John except perhaps as a child because in episode five we do do a little talking about how the con artist part of him came from his father who was very proud of possibly being related to famous. Mafia figures episode five of the TV series gives us a glimpse of John me hens childhood it shows him under the influence of his father a small time. Crook who ran a card room and introduced young John to a variety of swindles at one point as they sit together at a restaurant. The dad passes the boy is sharp glass to bite into in a scheme to get money out of the owners, you know, so Alex really felt that John was a black hole. And I know you guys really felt that. But as a director, I couldn't really work on those. This is the director Jeffrey Reiner. He's best known for his work on Friday night, lights, and the affair. He's directing all eight episodes of thirty John. I can't give an actor directions or, you know, play subtexts if there's not subtexts. So if you just plain somebody who's an evil person than you're going to have a lousy performance in. So, you know, Eric, I would really discuss a lot, you know, what motivates this guy?.

Art of the challenge was how to present a part of Orange County, not notable for striking architectural diversity. This made it among her most challenging jobs I worked in York for twenty something years and every building there has a lifetime of different facades and paints and textures. So I always typically build a story from that. When you talk about our Ange county new is better. So when we thought about Denver also being a interior designer if we did the interior design from when the story specifically took place, she would look dated. And no one would get who she was because it was at that point. I remind her that the story takes place. Only three or four years ago.

"At the center of the complicated. Newell family is Deborah trying to navigate her own needs. In those kids as I was reporting. The story originally I found it hard to make sense of Deborah's decision to take John me Han back in the face of so much damning evidence about his criminal past it only really began to make sense to me in the context of her painful family history. Denver has a strong religious background. She had the experience of her sister being shot point blank in the back of the head by her husband. And then watched her mother completely forgive him for that and have him serve almost no jail time very little jail. Time numbers mother, our lane did more than just forgive them. And who killed her daughter? She testified on his behalf at his trial or behavior, baffled and outraged. A lot of people who listen to the podcast read the series. I got a lot of emails on that theme in the TV show. Arlene is played by the actress. Jean smart. I asked her if she felt protective of the character. Well, of course, I certainly try to put myself in her mindset because some people the reaction as well. As a mother that that thing is so primal that feeling of protecting your child and losing your child that is such a primal, primal thing. How could she possibly have overcome that? But again, I think that because she feels that love and forgiveness trumps everything. And that she knew that the only place you could find that solid. And she went there instantaneously. She knew that if she didn't make that choice to go with her fate, and her feelings of forgiveness that she would probably lose your mind. It's kind of like I have met women who've lost children in Iraq and Afghanistan because I did a piece about a lot of mothers. And there are some that are very bitter, of course. And then there are some who after that. We're still joy. George Bush is the greatest thing in the world and America, first wars good thing. And while that in a way gives meaning to the death of the child exactly because if you felt that your child was just cannon fodder that you lost your child for nothing, except perhaps maybe greed or God knows what else you would go and thing you would be destroyed through your rage agree. I mean, I don't know how you could keep putting foot in front of you. The production designer on dirty John is Ruth Ammon. And she's responsible for the show's over.

"And wondering I'm Chris offered. And this is a special bonus episode of dirty, John. As preparation for her role in the new Bravo series. Connie Britton, tells me she made it a point to meet the woman or character is based on Deborah Newell. I think it was really really helpful to be able to spend time with her. And for no other reason, just to kind of learn her mannerisms, and you know, try to get some of that physicality and her vocal cadence and all the rest of it. But also, I really gave me insight into who. She is a person, you know, I also realized that I think Debra was in a point in her life where she was actually trying to empower herself because she's a self made very successful woman has a very very successful business, but has been doing that completely on her own really. So that she could raise her four children mostly on her own and because she has her marriages hadn't were. Worked and in the course of doing that felt a lot of guilt, especially about her two youngest daughter's because she felt like she just wasn't around for them. So I really saw as we were exploring the journey of this in our storytelling. I really saw her actually trying to empower herself with the relationship with John by when the daughters were saying, no, no, no. We don't like him. We don't like him saying, well, you know, I love you. And I respect you. But I like him, and I'm not gonna let you dictate what my life is supposed to be to me. I'm going to do this for myself. You know, trying to Chris you're trying to create boundaries for the first time, and because of some of her guilt and all the rest of it. She hadn't been able to really create boundaries with her daughters before. Suzy descent, the costume designer on John told me that the specific look she picked for Deborah is meant to reflect her emotional journey through the seasons. Eight episode arc. She took me through the costume trailer. You can see by looking at Connie's line. He plays Debra in the beginning. I used a lot of pain and cream colors and soft fabrics just to kind of set the scene of romance and falling in love. And just also being part of Deborah's curated world are very specific color schemes her specific set back so county, and I worked a lot with all of these colors that were really pretty and soft and then as things start to get a little darker, and John Mehan why call the heart of darkness of the show as it becomes apparent like what is happening in this woman's family and to. Family. We start to work with more blues. And then once John is killed the heart of darkness is lifted and we go back to the light colors again. In the show. Deborah's daughters are played by Juno temple and Julia garner Juno.

"It was really important to me not to show Debra as somebody who's foolish or silly or stupid or any of the things first of all because that was not my experience listening to the podcast at all. I'm talking with Connie Britton who was playing Debra Newell and the new Bravo series dirty. John the first experience that I have listening. That hothouse was how terrifying this guy is. And how easy it is to be conned. And that for me was the most chilling part. Because frankly, I I believe we're living in a country where we've been to some degree cons. People are having a hard time accessing truth and values and insteps, the conman. Britain is best known for her role as Tammy Taylor on the show Friday night lights in dirty, John. She's a successful interior designer in an affluent area of Orange County, California, g ignores her family's warnings about the new man in her life Mary's him hastily, then after she discovers he's been lying to her from the start takes him back to me. It was a really important story to tell because I love telling stories of women trying to find their own power through. Whatever influences have been given to them by their community by their church by the state that they live in by their family. On some level. She tells me she sees the story as being about the passing down values through generations. And how women struggle to define themselves against those forces to some degree, your value is as much as who you are with a man that can be very subtle thing. Because especially in this day and age women, if you're lucky you're raised to believe that you can do whatever you want, and you can accomplish anything. But there are still very very bold conventions about what it is to be a woman. Hi, this is Chris offered the writer and host of this podcast in case, you haven't heard Bravo is turning dirty John into limited events series..

"All subscribe to imagine life on apple podcasts or wherever you're listening to this today. A lot of people who listen to John wrote me with the same question. Why didn't Debra just leave? John me. People of judgmental about dead broad where I feel really protective of her is in the sense that this is a. Faye fought at all. It's none of it's none of famous. She's like a an unseeded tennis plaque coming up against the top ten in a tournament. John was incredibly adept at what he did. And he was skilled, and he was practiced. You should be falling. John. I think it's easy for people to be judgmental because I like to think that they want to sign mistakes. But I always come back to Hammy times have you. And you lot rehearsed something in your head about how you going to deal with someone that you level height. You go through that script site tomorrow. This is what I'm going to deal with these family member Sunday at lunchtime. If they do that guy. This is what I'm going to say and then on the day sitting across the table from that post you looking in their eyes and those words never come at. They never ever come at. Because when you're in the presence of someone changes, everything there are probably actors out there. And I think Eric would say this himself who have. To love the people they're playing I don't think Eric got into acting for that. This is Alex Cunningham, the show runner Eric got into acting to play people who are not him and to inhabit them and walk them around and show people why they're interesting, and I think because of that he's not trying to make you love John at it actually makes John much more real is magnetic and charismatic in the way that I have to imagine that John was for a lot of people in the way that there are so many things on television shows and also in real life were you I find myself going, you know, if somebody just asked one question, this wouldn't have happened. Why did they not ask that one question? And when you get around someone like, Eric even in real life. You can see how someone would choose the not ask that question that they don't they don't want to break the spell, or whatever I asked ban away. Whether he thought they were any parallels between John me, Han con artist and chameleon and the craft of an actor. I was semi worried that he'd take offense. I was mistaken. Oh, absolutely, absolutely. Is not a whole lot of difference. In fact, four show, you know, this definite parallels. He's could you said he was constantly grabbing a different mask for every person. And I think that's what that's what way too. I think you know, we're kind of Khakassiya looking skin in the mosque. Every time we go go to work. Selfishly taking whatever bits and pieces we need from anyone that we love will hate mercilus. So now in many respects with just a more respectable version of some of these behind carcasses. Yeah. Whatever is necessary keying brine hot. Yeah. faitH' physical anything. Later that day down the block, I watched the filming of the violent Clem attic parking lot confrontation between John me, Han and Tara Newell Anna and Julia garner who plays Tara stood nearby. Stunt doubles dressed exactly like them ran through the carefully choreographed knife attack over and over. We all watched as Kipi the stunt dog playing cash the miniature Australian shepherd or the stuntman pant leg to shreds when the stunt doubles were done than and garner came on to do it themselves. It was disturbing to watch garner looking small and overmatched Anna looking huge his face contorted with rage. Banna told me he sometimes feels affectionate toward characters he plays. But in this case, it's more complicated. And he's looking forward to forgetting how to think like John me Han, I think with these character. What's been different is? I just terrible. It does make me feel duty. You know, it does I do not and feel a little like I don't wanna make contact with a lot of women. You opening Niro pathways. When you applying these characters that Mike lying and deceiving and pretending on a different level to how you normally would as a person..

"Australia as a comedian Jeffrey Reiner who directed all eight episodes of thirty John told Bana, I want you to make me laugh every day on set. We should. Feel the first step aside that any woman would be very happy to babies company, and that there's nothing really they to sit alarm bells and Scifo. So it was about just making him first and foremost completely believable in real and somewhat lockable in the beginning as well. So I decided that it would be interesting to show a very juvenile side of John because the wine Turpin lot of the behavior was like remind me of kind of Tena elect, not even pray apprai- tain child who wasn't in control of of himself. And so decided to to incorporate some of that in the performance, which you know, you probably saying the lighter episodes, John me Henin real life like to adopt a tone of almost theatrical menace when he wanted to frighten people he told them to pray hard to enjoy their time left on earth and so forth. It was as if he took a ton. Guy. Halloween mask off the shelf. It wasn't a very good. Rod. So these. He's he's like the worst bad guy of like some of the stuff that will come out of math. I've tried to lane into that. I like the fact that this guy kind of thinks he's a bad guy. Got these gangs to age, and he's just he's like a bad caricature. At a fellas movie. He's the guy that's trying really hard. That would have been kicked out, you know, in the first two hours out of the cod room, and that's kind of funding to to notch. To not shy from into comedy, Bryce. A lot of people make grand resolutions for the new year. And we all know how well that usually works out stand out from the crowd, don't wait until some arbitrary.

"From the LA times. And wondering I'm Chris offered. And this is a special episode of thirty John. On the morning. I'm supposed to interview Eric Bana who plays John Mehan and the new Bravo series and tried to distract myself with the newspaper, crossword puzzle. It so happens that sixty five across is a four letter word with the clue Vana of hulk. This is a reference to ban is role in an lease brooding Accenture two thousand three film about the marvel character Anna told me that people rarely ask him about that movie. If he's in an airport for some reason people ask about Black Hawk Down women will often ask about the time. Traveler's wife, sometimes it's Munich in which he plays a massad agent ban. His breakout role was in the Australian crime drama chopper in two thousand he played chopper. Read a homicidal real life. Gangster who manages to be funny and terrifying all at once. It was one of the roles on the mine of Alex Cunningham, the lead writer and executive producer of dirty, John when she suggested Bana for the Mehan role. I think ciampa was far more. Methodical and made a lot more sense to meet than John letting John's much scarier mascara think he's very Radic. And I think radicchio the scariest behavior in someone. But we absolutely felt that if we'd opportunity to get Erik batte we wanted to go get him. This is Richard suckle who is an executive producer of the show suckle has produced films, like American hustle and wonder woman, and the TV show twelve monkeys, but this is first foray into limited series television. He tells me about meeting Bana in March of this year suckle and show runner. Alex Cunningham went to have drinks with Bana who is in town promoting film. We went over to an had drinks with him at the Lerma Taj hotel on Burton way in Beverly Hills. Really he was interested in knowing exactly the way in which Alex was going to tell the series. You know, what she going to tell it in a linear fashion from beginning. Middle to end, how close was she going to stick to your podcast and the way you structure, the pod. Cast with the opening of the reveal that somebody's dead, but you don't know who's dead within days ban ahead committed even before the pilot script had been written. I worry that whoever ended up playing John Mehan would insist on softening him and try to make him redeemable and what TV executives like to call relatable. I thought the chances of this happening increased with the size of the star in the case of Bana. This worry proved to be unfounded. I asked on what he thought John me he told himself when he looked in the mirror. What explication he gave himself for his behavior which was at times, not just monstrous, but illogical and self defeating because I came to the conclusion that John didn't really know what he was doing. And once I came to that general conclusion things became a lot of as yet because I think it's human nightshift or us to try and come up with these perfect dances that explain people sign people are in therapy all locked and still work themselves out. So why the hell? Would I expect in the third person fourth second to come up with a version of John million that make sense when he himself wouldn't have nine what the hell he was doing? Or who he was a why he was that why this view of me Han extended to the question of whether he loved Deborah Newell. The one thing I felt as off as the fans is by really felt that Joan probably didn't really know himself, and once time to that thought that might things because I think people can go through the motions in a relationship, especially you know, social has a very adept at depth, as you know, you know, behavior that these the hybrid, I think they should be adapting to get what they NATO to appear normal while the paper and Saiful for years ban was best known in.
