"Dea. Hadeed thank you so much. you're welcome. Thank you tanya. And you can see that british vogue cover of malala yousafzai as well as a link to the article on here now dot org in eighteen. Ninety seven the daring belgian commander. Adrian does your lodge set out to become the first explored a visit the earth's magnetic south pole. He didn't make it the commander and his crew got stuck in the sea ice and instead said a different record they became the first people ever to spend an entire winter at the bottom of the earth. Not everyone escaped with their lives or their sanity. Julian sanctum is author of a new book about the expedition. It's called madhouse at the end of the earth belgium journey into the dark antarctic night. Julian welcome thanks very much for having me so. What did people know of antarctica at the time in eighteen ninety seven. How uncharted was it. People didn't even know if it was a continent. It was believed that it. It was very likely to be an ocean covered with ice the same way that the arctic is that hasn't been an expert series expedition of any kind since in the last fifty years. The its fauna. It's flora its geology coastlines. Were all but unknown at that time and so it was quite a daunting proposition. For a couple dozen men. Many of whom were in no way prepared for this to explore the great white unknown. No doubt they were a bit of a rag. Tag group weren't they. I mean they didn't speak the same language they had very little cold weather polar experience. What was it like on board. The ship was riven with Divisions of french-speaking walloons didn't get along with the the dutch-speaking flemings Then there was the resentment between the the sailors. Which were you know. Some of them were a notch below pirates in terms of discipline And the norwegian sailors that detroit Brought in because of their experience of cold weather and then there was no psychological. Screening the way. There is today in these sorts of missions. And i think it's important to say there were also a couple of scientists on board and after they sailed south for many days and weeks even The guy who did make it to antarctica they made twenty landings and every delighted everybody to be in this place that they had only dreamt of. What did the scientists find. When they got off the ship they found a world out of fantasy. It was just a a and it's it's one that i was lucky enough to visit a couple of years ago. In december twenty eighteen. I traveled to the zero straight which is named after the commander of the belgian and it is one of the most sublime places on earth. It really and it hasn't changed. At least it hasn't appeared to change in the last hundred twenty years. Of course the ecosystem is slowly breaking down and being threatened by climate change but it looks identical and what they found was a landed. It looks like the imagine if the himalayas somehow the had risen halfway up the himalayas and the animals there were not at all. We're not used to humans. And so they could approach them and the science discovered more than one hundred new species. Many of them were insects but for a scientist must have been pure bliss but later that bliss gave way to get to terror as when they drifted into the bellingshausen see on their way to the south magnetic pole and by that time. The winter i said started to set in. Will you took the words right out of my mouth though. The bliss turned a terror. Because at that point the commander had a choice right. He could have either turned back or sale deeper into the ice in deeper into winter. Why did he keep going because he knew he was gonna get stuck. This is one of the questions that i endeavored to solve with this book. He knew that if he turned back without having achieved the goal of reaching the south magnetic pole that he would be lambasted in the belgian. Press or at least he thought he would be in. That scared him more than the prospect of spending winter in the antarctic. He knew that if he managed to survive the winter he and his men would become the first to spend a winter in the antarctic and so that in itself would be something to boast about in expeditions of this kind. Great stories are as valuable resources. Gold wow so that's like pure hubris right. I mean how unprepared was the crew for what happened on on may sixteenth. Then when the sun goes down in doesn't come back for seven days. Well i would say that only one man was prepared for that and that man was frederick cook. He was the ship's jin he was an american. He had spent A few grueling winters in the arctic among the inuit of greenland even he was very much opposed to the idea of wintering in the is in fact everybody but the commander was which is why. It's it's such a baffling decision. That your would have sailed to the south. I mean that set the stage for a really horrendous experience in among the men because they felt that this was something they had no control over they felt betrayed and in addition when the sun sets and the cold sets in their bodies and minds began to break down and they were subjected not just to scurvy but to a sort of a mysterious polar malays that made their heart rates. Beat a radically. The the muscles atrophied they sank deep into depression and some were brought to the brink of insanity in two men actually Lost their minds. One of them never recovered It was a an incredible ordeal. It's thanks to cook and his ingenuity. In fact and he had an idea of what was going on he actually introduced penguin meat into the cruise diets. Much to their disgust. Actually but it helped indeed. He thought back to his time among the annual it and realized that they had a traditional diet of fresh meat and access to Vegetables or fruit for much of the year that they didn't exhibit the signs of scurvy. And so he reasons Quite brilliantly that there must be something in fresh meat that can all of the body needs to ward off the disease and he was right. Wouldn't be for another couple of decades that we'd realize why he was right into the. You know the meat of all animals. Barring a few exceptions like human guinea pigs contains vitamin c. And those who took his advice did much better and those who refuse to swallow the revolting penguin meat which he recommended be eaten raw by the way kept on sliding down the slope of scurvy and disease that if you don't intervene leads. Inevitably to death. So how under those conditions did they get out well again. Our friend frederick cook by convincing the men somehow possible that they might extricate this ship from a flow of is more than a mile in diameter. the it was baffling to them at first. This idea was ludicrous. It was almost as if he had suggested that. They flap their arms and fly home. I mean they hit even tried to blow the ice up with bombs and that didn't work. So how how could any plan work. Well yeah he thought is cook over the time when the sun was absent had come to revere the sun and so he he wanted to find a way to let the sun.

"And i remember when i was a blogging as an eleven year old girl sharing my story of what my life was like under the taliban and a lot of people get a lot of people listened to a disappointed me so that so many stories out there where guzzler twentieth by you and when you see their commitment that passionate and the hard work is just incredible how good boys and men to buy into the importance of empowering girls and women when my has sort of been advocating that your wishes his story of how he was celebrating the birth of his daughter wild his relatives. Everyone else was telling my mom. That next i and hopefully she would have a son when i was born so my father has always said a brigade me as his daughter and he was special about gaza education. So when have mental models who are openly and vocally feminists toll. Not just vava tell people that women are equipped men but the practically short. I think that's the men we need. Who win say that. They have given equal opportunities to their daughters. They will allow them to do any jaw. There will allow them to have access to the same opportunities as boys have. There's so many ways in which men can happen. They're very much needed. Because when we talk of on a bigger scale that's where the problem lies so when we talk about the decisions that are made in a room and mostly these these decisions about women what you see the dead men sitting on that day. but then there's a lack of women's representation there sometimes no woman on the table. So it's important that we provide room for women to beyond those decisions about their future. Their body are made so women's presence women's voices are very much needed. And i hold that men and boys need to stand up for that and defend women's a pointing. Let's take another question. I understand that. The number of girls attending school has improved. Greatly at the quality of education is often sorely lacking. What are your thoughts on the best ways to improve the quality of education once the girls are able to be in school. Hundred percent agree in when we talk about the gonzaga school. That number is in millions. But the guys who are in school in are not learning that number is also in millions and that is concerning you know in in future there would be a more than a billion goes who would not be ready to participate in the task for requirements. That are needed. Thank so there. Is that concern that if does not receive quality education. They're not receiving education about that. They might need in future. They will not be ready to participate in the economy. And also i personally think that we need gender sensitive curriculum. We need awareness about sexuality. We need awareness bald person prediction. And i think this is very much needed especially for young girls. So they're like teaching. The malala fund focuses on one is financing flirtation. There's a huge gap in that s. That's what we have been pushing for.

As I saw the pace of innovation around me in Silicon Valley as something at the intersection of this and what I've been doing back home so at the point where I knew that you know Molo Oh is safe and healthy. The Malala Fund was now an established organization. The question for me was. Do I see my long term career in the nonprofit space then the answer there was no and I had been pulled back into the. US had been living in Dubai. With Mackenzie I'd been pulled into building an organization. It was a nonprofit if it but it was still a startup so my peer group was women building companies and I noticed how hard it was to raise money. If you're a woman if you were person of color if you were building something that had emission right that you were brave enough to boldly articulate and perhaps standby even when sometimes it was a tough decision. So I I was more and more interested in playing a role there. I decided to create an Angel Fund to start doing that to start investing in people that I believed in and I called it now. Ventures and I was fortunate to partner up with angels out in Silicon Valley Ans- over the last two years I've invested in ten companies. Eighty percent female founded all of them have a social mission companies like Parsley health out of New York wellness integrated with healthcare by humankind and other New York based company creating plastic stick free products for the body and home company. Out of San Francisco called PA. which is a a platform for carbon credits? So it helps measure and trade trade carbon credits helping businesses go carbon-neutral and it's been really interesting experience. In particular I think helping startups think through their mission and their impact. What makes you want to write a check? So I- invest early and it's about the people and it's about believing that the team has the skill to shoot not just start something but to grow it. And it's about knowing that their values are strongly aligned with my own in terms of they're gonNA make decisions that ensure that if this company succeeds this the world will be a better place right. So what is the outcome if this company is actually a success and is that good for the world or is that bad for the world and to me. That's a critical question. I also keep lens on diversity. I've never called my fund diversity city fund but as a woman a person of color. My network is very diverse and I tend to know amazing people who happened to be female and so that's been another Orlands that I've applied. How do you balance when you're working with your portfolio companies and also with your company which we're going to get to the the trade off that comes with what you just mentioned which is what's what's good for the mission versus the bottom line? I think that you have to find the happy be medium. I think if you do that then you're at a tremendous advantage. Young people are saying I WANNA work for companies that give me a sense of purpose. I'm I'm your half of millennials. Say they've ruled out working for a company because of its values or standard of conduct ninety four percents of consumers say they would switch brands to one that supports a 'cause now of of course that doesn't apply. The prices are significantly higher. Or you know. They're they're not in love with the brands. You still have to have a great product at the right price point. He'll have to have I. Product Market Fit. But if you're able to do that and give people a sense of purpose because I think now our generation is really looking to find a sense of identity in How they consume in the past? We found identity and family and faith in community. A lot of that in America I think has been somewhat eroded and we're disconnected and researching four sense of purpose and we want that purpose in everything. We want our deodorant to be clean and made by women I and free of plastics. We want our shaving razors to be talking about issues surrounding body hair and the shame that that's been been used to create amongst women and most of all we want our work to be not just a place we come to pay rent but to find meaning and belonging and companies that means that are able to harness that I think are a real advantage what I will say that takes thought. It's not a simple as business as usual. Let's donate you know. Quarter of a percentage to charity. That nobody's going to object to it's really about looking at each part of Your Business. syncing how do I do this in a way. That's better for the world. So if we're doing brandon design you you know what are the politics of design. What are the ways in which the design choices we make can be used to amplify voices that have perhaps been other D- I think everything you're saying it is made easier if you're in a position of leadership if you are founder? CEO An exact team if you are an employee at a company and he want to to find that purpose you want to create impact. You want to help especially in a bigger corporate company to start creating that change for our listeners. What is your best advice about how to shepherd up? Yep So speaking up rate I mean when I think back even just to my decision to start the Malala Fund I called my boss up McKenzie and I said I've decided sided. I've got to quit. And he turned around and said Okay but lettuce support you for a while. Make the ask. I didn't even make the ask. So I think and coming up with a concrete proposal and getting a group of employees excited about it and going to management and saying hey you know I know. We're doing a packaging redesign. I know nope this really great female founded firm that creates plastics repackaging. It would really mean a lot to us if you would consider engaging them. What's a mistake that you here? See people make when they try to instill impact organization suspended management or or employees employees. One is just not asking asking right just assuming like they don't care about this stuff often they do and they're just you know there's so much going on right so if you go with an idea. That's actually actionable. Often they will care. The other is not giving people a chance right back to that same thing right which is like oh I would go to them but this is not their thing or you know. They're just motivated by money. So I think this uttering that can sometimes happen between employees and management that I've seen as well but actually trying like actually giving people a chance and saying hey I don't know if this is an issue you care about but I'd love to raise it with you. I'd love to hear your thoughts about it or if you don't care about it if you can't do this will you explain to me why before. I just assume that you don't care when we started talking. You mentioned the tendency of young people to think about things in terms of absolutism elitism. I'M GONNA say we're all GONNA give us the benefit of doubt that we're all. We're all still relatively young you in particular. How do you think about that? Now I think I see things in a far more nuanced way you know when I was young I thought I could end human suffering. I know that I can't and human suffering however I also know now that some some of the smallest things I've done have become some of the biggest things I've done right so starting a summer camp in a remote part of you know Pakistan for a handful of girls I still remember I think I applied. I WANNA say to UNICEF for funding for it. I needed like a couple of hundred dollars to cover the costs of combination and food and for larger proposals. They say well. How is sustainable? which is a question I would ask anyone? How does this continue and sustain Galon? I said well it isn't. It's really intended to address just one issue and raise the profile of this one issue and it became one of the most sort of scalable sustainable things I've done so I think just you know holding room room for the unknown in our business. We talk about growth through our business plans and our technologies and I've learned that scale can be so much more unpredictable that it often comes from a single idea story or act of courage just keeping the space for that talk to us about your most recent the idea. Yeah so a couple of months ago I launched a company a start up. Call Dr Place. My Co founded it with my husband and a friend of ours. It's a mission driven ribbon ECOMMERCE company that creates products for the kitchen that are rooted in culture and tradition. And we're trying to think about impact and everything what we do. Whether that is removing plastics from our packaging sourcing ethically from artisans in women owned factories but most importantly through our storytelling. So I'm an emigrant. I'm Pakistani woman. I'm a person of color Muslim. Like take me two parts of this country and to be very much the definition of the other and I've made my home in this country three and I love being here. I came to this country right as Obama. President Obama was being elected and I stayed in this country and the recent political climate Emmett and I've seen this division in the sense of separateness and otherness. That's arising and what I've always believed is when you cook a meal together and you sit around a dinner table bull. You don't just know somebody. Is You know who their grandmother was or is home cooking cooking together eating together as bedrock of culture and dignity and I love and it's something that we're losing in the sort of convenience culture so we've been creating products and telling stories the challenge that that inspire people to cook more and with each collections we partner with the community and put a nuanced lands on a story in a culture so we partnered with Mexican Americans. I'm around Christmas and celebrated nausea. Wena we partnered partnered with Chinese Americans around Lunar New Year where moving forward to talk about Muslim American culture and the diversity of that and the different foods that are included in Muslim American culture like soul food. Most people don't realize a lot of Muslims eat soul food. I love this idea in a very excited to see how this continues to grow. I'm fascinated fascinated. What is it like you've been a solo founder? You've been a co-founder what is it like to be a CO founder with your husband. It's really great We Are Matt Great. Unless it's terrible ray and and that was our thing you know my husband and I we always connected deeply on work on ideas and we've always been each other confidence and we always were like. Should we do. This are willing to completely mess up everything and eventually we just did it mainly only because we loved the idea and we felt we could both bring different pieces of the puzzle together better than anybody else. We knew being an entrepreneur doing something that is so so consuming. It's all of you right. It's all of your brain. It's where you are highs lows and to be unable to share that with your partner I think can be challenging in the past when I've gone off and done things on my own and I'm traveling and I'm speaking in Paris for two weeks on my own doing something super exciting and now I've come home home. And and he wasn't there..
You Know Malala. Now, Meet Her Mentor Shiza.
"We welcome Shiva Shahad to skimmed from the couch. She is a social entrepreneur activist and investor before four founding now ventures a seed fund for mission driven companies and our place an ECOMMERCE company. She's a CO founded the Malala Fund listeners. Maino Malala Story. I'm sure you do. She was a student and an advocate for girls' education in Pakistan and survived being shot in the head by the Taliban Malala Malala then became one of the most powerful voices for peace in the world and by her side. She has a harness the power of Melilla Story and created a global full nonprofit to advance the education of girls around the world. Shizue has focused her life and career on making the world a better place and we are very excited to have her with us. Today welcomed skin from the couch. I'm so excited to be here. I Love Skim thank you we were just saying. This is our first interview of the decades. So what are we to kick off. I'm very curious you such an impressive resume and you've done so many things that we're going to get into but what is not on your linked in profile that we should know about you. I think that I Show up a lot. You know as I look at my career path and the things that I've done. It's very often been a decision to show up in the moment if I were to draw a line through all of the startups. The projects whether in the nonprofit space or investing is often been sparked by an article. I read in the newspaper or somebody that came Aiman reached out for help and asked me to join them or an issue that I saw in an industry and I'll sort of decide. Maybe there's something I can do to help. And it leads me down this path of founding a nonprofit when I had no intention or going back to back assigned to secretly create a summer camp com for girls being denied an education or founding. Unethical sustainable cookware line. It always starts with the sort of fire in my belly this passion and very often in a sense of anger when there's injustice so yeah I guess I would just call myself a serial show or upper I like that. That's a good good take on a card Let's start with how you grew up because my first question is you have done amazing things that hopefully will have a lasting impact in the world but worry like a kid Roy your family like what kind of education you have you grew up in Islamabad. I was a quiet kid I grew up in a loving home in the capital of Pakistan Islamabad. I come from modest. self-made family I was fortunate. I was given a good education and tremendous amount of support from my parents but I was also growing up in a country that has many social challenges. It's ranked the second can worst place to be born a woman. It has a second highest number of children out of school in the entire world. And I think I recognized that difference that I had so much opportunity in most girls and women didn't and I wanted to understand it so I ended up spending recognize that because your mom or your dad showed you that or does something you observed on your own. I don't think my parents pushed me towards it. They are charitable and generous. Actually we run an orphanage now but at the time that I was growing up they were you know working hard to build a life for their family. They didn't impose it on me. They sort of gave me a lot of space to be myself You said you were shy and curious. What would bring you out of your Shell? I think the space to be myself so my siblings are ten in eight years older answered big personalities and so in their presence. I think I was very quiet. And then I got very involved in social activism work and when I did that It felt like it was my space to speak up. I sort of found my voice you know. Is this weird activist child child you know organizing protests and giving interviews and getting really involved. I'm very curious going up in Pakistan and this wise has this was a pre nine eleven Pakistan these social opportunities for women were never strong as you mentioned with those alarming stats but it was also different than Pakistan. That we've known in the last twenty years. You know all kids dream about what are you going to be when you grow up. And I'm also an astronaut president. An actor writer doctor. Did you dream like what you're GonNa be when you grow up. I wanted to make a real difference particularly in my home country. I wanted to make things better for women for people who were oppressed because they were perhaps of a different faith or within within Islam. I wanted to make a change through storytelling through nonprofit work through empowering and employing women and you know the thing about being young. Is You really believe in absolutes. And when you get passionate about making a difference when you're young and you see this. Now I think with the rise of teenage activists in America's well it's all consuming it is a sense of right and wrong and a deep passion about fighting injustice. And that was me growing up you now. My friends were sneaking out to parties and I was sneaking out to protest and Yeah are your parents like we wish he would just go to a party. I I think so. I remember once I stunk. Up to protest and It was a small protest so my face. I was photographed and put on the front page of the national. The House like walking around the House hiding the newspaper. And then my my dad got a phone call in the front page of the newspaper and they laughed about about in. That was when I knew that while they wanted me to be safe I could probably get away with it as long as I was safe. You ended up coming to the. US for college. You went to Stanford I'm really Makarius. What that transition must have been like coming from Pakistan thrown into the heart of tech entrepreneurship? I'm just fascinated what that transition must have been like for you. Yeah it was. It was hard it was hard not because it was American culture. That was foreign to me American culture. So pervasive evasive united grownup washing friends and cheers. And there's no you do not watch shares. I did know because I love cheers. And you make fun of me for liking it. I still watching coaching it. Okay well I I watched whatever was available you know they would package these. TV shows and like send them over to Pakistan and they would advertise all. These American can products that weren't available in Pakistan yet like dominoes pizza. I grew up being advertised. Domino's pizza I've never had it in my head. Yeah I feel like in my head. It's better than it will be so. That's pretty good It's gotten a lot better College is a time when people you're going to school to discover who they are here. You are already kind of a step ahead in terms of you know that you're passionate about things you have grown up protesting testing and then you fly across the world to go to school. Yeah I mean it was hard because it was this very undergraduate focused experience right Stanford Sanford is a. It's a college town. There's no sadie where you can sort of. Go Out and hang out with non undergraduates who are doing other things and immersed in the world and I think I had one other Cassani in my class and I was sort of you know on this path and I felt very sure of it now to be clear I didn't have it all figured out right in my path would change tremendously in the years. That followed So it was hard on the one hand on the other hand it was a tremendous privilege. I mean here I was now in a school wall then made me part of a exclusive club that put me in a class of twenty students with Condoleeza Rice. The your she left office so now I was just as you know. Middle Class girl from Pakistan had all this access and opportunity and I felt that I had to use that platform to amplify the stories in bacchus on that I was hearing during that perhaps other people in America weren't so it sort of lit a fire in my belly that was there was even deeper. Had your siblings gone to school outside of Pakistan yes so my sister had studied in the US for her master's my brother had started out in Pakistan and then transferred two years then. When did you first hear the name Malala? So I was sitting in my dorm room at Stanford I was reading about the insurgency in Pakistan. which at the time was probably at its peak? Sort of what you're awfully. She's has an nine two thousand eight. Actually actually I would say. There is a town in the north of Pakistan that at the time had been taken over by group linked to the Taliban it's called Swap Valley and the Taliban Alabama become increasingly violent had begun blowing up girls schools and in January. Two thousand nine declared an all-out ban on female education in the Swat Valley so here I was getting incredible education in less than three hundred miles from where I grew up. Girls we're being told they couldn't go to school and it felt deeply personal and it felt like a story that I could amplify to make a difference so I was studying it reading up about it and I came upon a diary written by a schoolgirl from the Swat valley. And she roach this is my plea to the world. Save my school. Save my swamp valley and I was just shook to my core four of the diary of Anne Frank and I began to research to figure out who this girl was and I got to know that she was a little girl. Names Malala and her father other Zero Dean Ron School. I don't even recall how but I called my contacts and bags on and said I want to know who this girl is and I. I remember calling her father from my dorm room at Stanford and just being like Hi. Here's who I am.
Inside Bill Gates' Brain with Davis Guggenheim
"Bills Brain three part documentary. Nfl I just watched it this week. Tell me how this project got started because you have you got a lot of access to gates and it's obviously Dan netflix unusual structure. You know three one hour episodes. Don't tell me how it came together so I was making the film waiting for Superman and we were almost it's done but it felt like he was missing. Voice and waiting for Superman was about public education's like how does this sort of failure of our public schools effect business and you know what better the thing to talk about. Someone who's in Silicon Valley or at least the business of Silicon Valley. He's obviously in Seattle but what does that do to growing the best business in in in America. How do you find talented educated. People had at his failure of our schools of some of our schools. I should say many are do really well but how does that effect are growing economy in in in the tech business. So I went up an interview bill. He was so great and so surprising that that I was like wait a minute this this person the needs to be reconsidered a because to give us the backstory. I was a I got a Macintosh nineteen eighty-four. It was the first person in my dorm Brown to get one. I think it was like ten had arrived at Brown in everyone of my floor huddled around this magical computer so I was a Mac. I was an apple guy and I always thought Steve Jobs is cool and Microsoft was just like for the business people and so I sort of held Bill Gates in my mind at arm's length that was like he just business guy. Maybe he's a monopolist. Maybe he's not but but you know I like. I like Mac and so what I finally met him. I was like wow. There's something he's doing right now. That needs to be understood. He is he's really changed his public image and I don't WanNa get into into that part of it because the weight inside bills brain is structured literally inside of every episode. It's almost like a thriller of the project that the bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is doing doing whether that's toilets or nuclear energy or vaccinations then there's like the history which is what most people kind of assume you're going to get right. We're GONNA GONNA tell the story Bill Gates from start to now but there's this like thriller component of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation happening inside of it. How did you decide to like like musicnet structure. Go started filming and I actually got lost. I don't know how to make this because a lot of the work. They're doing a super complex. In also initially dramatically. It's not just add water in the story tells itself right and so I was experimenting with this kind of way of cutting back and forth between his biography in the work that he's doing and the first time it worked was when I in its in episode two I think is when he's trying to figure out why cases of polio keep popping up all over Nigeria in Afghanistan Pakistan and why past efforts was it failed and how he used sort of his brain had he delvin to sort of like crack that because people been trying for years they thought they were getting close and then it doesn't work it. Would I thought I'd do is show bill in the early days in highschool cracking the class schedule. It's sort of a famous story where his private private school asbill a sophomore. I think ask him when he's a software and then he does it in his junior senior year but they say you're. You're good at this computer thing. You know there's a famous terminal school only one terminal any school in State of Washington say. Hey you're good at this coatings and can you code the class schedule at lakeside aside and so he and Paul Allen Staple night figure out how you know because his lakeside had merged with girls school so they had all these different classrooms different for campuses and Bill Paul us sort of their brains and they're sort of algorithms to cracks in the same way he cracks the algorithm or tries to crack the algorithm for a radical polio he did things like digital mapping in predictive analysis on where cases of polio would show up so the story telling the whole story retelling for all three episodes follows that one example where we cut back and forth between something some way in which his brain worked or or something revealed in his character actor is historical story with what he's doing now to reveal how his brain works and how you know how he solves problems so you obviously got all this access testable to Melinda. You got a bunch of archival footage. I guess you would call it of them. When they were young when they were dating there's Video Ville hugging kids when they're babies as which broke me like you don't ever see that side of him. How did you go about getting access to build. The product was kind of the condition that I make for any movie. When I flew complained to commit to page talk him into doing it might get loud. It was like if we're if we're GONNA do this. You got to open up to me. I won't ask any questions to ask. I will put everything on the table because that's you know that's what if you're going to do a movie forgot to go make make that effort you open yourself up and the same thing. I did with bill and I have to save all the people I've ever made a movie about. He was the most open in the least concerned about Oh. Don't go there. Don't get this right. I mean I went. I went right into you. You know the depositions for the case. You know there's pretty harsh stuff in there about how the world sees him and I put all if even if you go and watch the trailer of the trailer in the opening of the move of the series is is this guy a good guy bad guy you know one. One voice calls him the devil I really wanted to say I want to put it all table. Say who you know. Let's let's put everything on the table and let's let's consider this man. Today did bill get any edit control. Do they get to say they didn't want anything in there. Now what I do is for every movie all when I get a cut that I like I'll go show it to people so I showed to Jimmy page edge or anyone else or Bano or Malala just because I wanna make sure that I didn't miss something or it didn't miss categorize something and often in every case you sort of. They say oh well. You know what there's another another piece that story that entail you and usually gets better but nothing was. I didn't take anything out that I didn't WANNA put in so there's sequence your time in the antitrust apiece. There's a sequence where you ask him if he was arrogant in step position. This is great because you know. This is a heavy topic now. We actually talked about it on this podcast. All the time like like are these companies to powerful should get broken up. Microsoft was arguably the first the current president of Microsoft Brad Smith. He's just read a book about basically asking being the government to regulate tech companies. It's very interesting but it he bill gates was the first as you note in the documentary. He's he stepped back from the operations operations of Microsoft to handle trial he gave this famously bad deposition and you ask him if he's arrogant and he he was like well look when you're a twenty year old billionaire. Maher sometimes when when you were getting answer. Did you sense that he was that he was shading or was he just telling you what he thought. Who's absolutely shading you. You Watch it. What's what's fun about watching. The movie and we put the full answer in is that he didn't WanNa say he was hacked arrogant. The Fun thing about making a movie is one of my agree. Teachers taught me this about storytelling is that you know that the filmmakers job is to plus two. The audience's job is for that sounds like a really pretentious film film school way of saying it but the idea is I ask if he was arrogant. He gives an answer. It's up to you and the audience to say and decide whether he's arrogant or not so I like to put that in there and let the audience decide for himself or herself. Do you think that arrogance however he wants to think of it is an asset to him and his current work. That's a good question. That's a really good question. I'd have to let him answer that. I mean I think intense focus. I think being very certain I think maybe with a touch arrogance. Get to this place where you're cutting through a Lotta bullshit so that is an let me let me qualify this answer by this is my answer not his answer but I do think that affect of people in the world have to cut through bullshit they have to cut through group think in their own group in their own company they have to cut through how the bureaucratic nature of a big company slows things down so if arrogance Y- like five percent or twelve percent arrogance and certainty and bull headedness it is effective. I wouldn't mind that I think sometimes a director of documentaries has to be bull headed and arrogant sometimes but then you have to sort of you know put guardrails ells on yourself. You have to have a few on that so that you don't go too far and I think clearly see footage in there. From the early days of Microsoft will they'll clearly went too far. Your gifts and that's actually the one the one piece of documentary that I I don't know how interesting it would be to everybody. I kind of understand why it wouldn't be there but it's very interesting to me is Microsoft soft was a ruthless company with gates at the helm and you you wave at it a few times right by their competitors date they crush them obviously netscape and eh interest trials there but there was lots and lots of other stuff they did to ruthlessly destroy their competitors along the way and that was all bill. was there a moment where like. I need to focus on that that stuff more or say. I just need to say at once and move on. There's other stuff. That's more important you I mean the the the the focus of the series is really not about that. I put enough enough in there to acknowledge it and say this happened but it wasn't an expose of the tactics. Microsoft in this period of time and so did just like the movie doesn't get into who all the details of the entrust case it doesn't get into all the details of why bill thinks that they were maligned nor does it get into all the details of why people think Microsoft is wrong. That wasn't the focus of the series. The focus of the series is a character study of a guy in in what is he doing with his life.
Mozambique, Zimbabwe cyclone deaths exceed 300 as UN boosts aid
"The United Nations spokesman says the UN intends to ask the international community for money to help deal with the aftermath of a devastating cyclone that hit southern Africa spokesman Farhan hawk saying that is one of the worst natural disasters. Hit that region. In living memory cyclone came ashore overnight into last Friday morning, and flood waters are still rising there. Torrential rains?

"malala" Discussed on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah: Ears Edition
"If you were trying to convince somebody who was anti immigrant anti refugee have you found anything that you can say to them that shifts them or do you find a way that you can speak to people to try and help them. See the humanity in this plights, I've been trying to get her while, and I think it is difficult to convince people, but I think. For me the best way to know about is. I think oftentimes people do not know enough. They do not they have not met refugee, and they have not talked refugees and what she has gone through. So I think it's important for people to actually going to people, and it's the best way to integrate, and my father often says that if you want to know about a Muslim man or Muslim person do not know them through the news. But rather go and visit your next door neighbor, who's a Muslim and talk to them. So I think talking to people is important, but also go and look for facts and figures of how immigrants and refugees contributor to the global economy's in how for instance, take the US how refugees and immigrants have built this country at the level that it is right now. And also just look at the human side of why people leave their homes, and it is not that simple. It never their first choice. And it is often the difficulties they face that that pushed them out of their houses. And for me personally when we were leaving swat valley. Our hometown. That was because there was it was not safe to stay. There are lives at risk. And we did not know where we're going. We did not know for how long, but we knew that we could not stay. There was no more choice, but to leave our homes, the one of the reasons to to buy this book is because of the stories that are truly amazing, and we'll written another reason is because the proceeds go to an amazing 'cause and that is foundation which focuses on education. Why did you specifically choose that? Why why is the of fun specifically going after education of all the things that you could have done in? Because I remember the time when my own education was banned by these extremist groups called the Taliban. And and I remember waking up. I think ten years ago exactly ten years ago. It was the month of January two thousand nine that. I woke up one morning and education was completely banned. And nobody was allowed to go to school and the ad is that my Fisher was taken away. From me, my dreams taken away from me. I was just limited to the house. I could not go inland. I could not go in study. I could not go and become a doctor or a teacher in engineer and for many the only way towards empowerment is learning is getting their education doing the job and then standing their own two feet. So for me, it is it's education is crucial for every goals in parliament. But also the fact that if half of the population of the world does not get education. If they are not empowered. The the world is losing the all losing so education is crucial for me, especially of women because when we educate women this allows us to grow corn Amies educating all of to secondary level would add up to thirty trillion dollars to the world economy and helps us to.

Singer in, fact I still listen to it from time to. Time if you look at, it it's kind of a silly. Song Come in the cafe and sit down at table. Is, that kind. Of stuff, songs as simple but it caught the attention of. France and the world in, one thousand nine hundred fifty nine And of course the original French version was the biggest hit others recorded them in other languages And we're. Not, talking about this at all We're talking about other topics but I just felt like being.

Toxicants occurring marijuana smoke things of that nature, but I wanna know read something to you That was written so long ago and. Yet sewed well describes the vacuity nature of the, media today and the entertainment world I've read it to you once before but I think it wasn't heard a lot of, people I bought a bunch of, books for my vacation which I didn't go on and. I, still have the book sitting, here I read them at home instead of on vacation it's much easier to. Read it home because I don't, read in the sun to begin with and I, hate the sun so, I don't, go, on vacation much more comfortable.

In the eighteen eighties I believe it not exact date it's unimportant illusions purview was published eighteen thirty seven eight hundred forty, three okay so he's describing this great writer I've collected Balzac things ever some eighteen years old And so I want. You to. Listen. To what literature was in those. Days compare it with what passes for literature today And he's describing a woman Dancer an entertainer and he says her face was of the noblest Jewish type that long oval face of pure fair ivory with lips, as Scarlett as a pomegranate and they Xinha's delicate as the edge of a Cup beneath the islands with their curving lashes burned is of jet from which could come languishing or sparkling glances as occasion offered those is sunken in an olive circle, was surmounted by arch black, browse on the ivory forehead crowned by bands of ebony. On which the lights were glancing satin, thrown a wealth of thought which seemed. To be that of genius and yet like many other actresses Coralie without wit in spite of her green room repartee without education beyond her bourgeois experience had no talent except the intelligence of the senses and the. Perceptions of an affectionate woman no one can write like this anymore now This is in translation you can just imagine how good, this is in French but he describes completely the vacuous nature of our entertainers of today who looked so intelligence and are empty and we look at them as though they know what they're talking about and they don't and when I say entertainment, of course I also mean, the entertainment news complex which is the same and we. Wonder why we hear such triple coming, out of their mouths because they're very. Much like this actress described by him in the eighteen forties beautiful but empty and that's not the rest of the story that's the beginning of our number two on the Savage Nation where we begin with abuse.

I think I did a brave thing that I spoke out for education and then even after hours attacked, I spoke out again. So it's is defined as Badri for me. Baby is when you speak up and speak out for what is right, and it's all responsibility. It's not that we do something give something extra and do a favor to our community. I think it's all duty and we should do it and we must do it. And however you define it, it's our duty to speak out for tonight. Where do you think you started to embody that? I mean, obviously, we see in the wonderful film. He named me Malala that from a little toddler, you're crawling around in the classrooms and you're listening to your father teach. So obviously the way you were raised had a lot to do with how you felt about yourself and the strength that you hold for yourself as a young girl and a and a growing. A woman. But where does what does that come from? Because the thing that you say at the end of the movie is so powerful. I'm not going to give that away. But when you say you work to become this girl? Yes. But who really inspired me was my father and my mother, of course, and I when I would listen to my father speaking out for education and speaking out for women's, is it just really inspired me. But then sometimes we just think that the fasten hold bring, the change would be very special and he'd be like Martin Luther King and Nelson Mandela, and they're very special people. They can't be among us and we don't realize that they are just normal people. People like us and the lower on not haven't done that much yet. And it's my my dream to be like them in the chain. They have brought in society that I can do the same and it's like the beginning of the journey, but it's really to believe that that they're just like, you. And it begins from a small step and when you it's, it's helping the community. If you are truly that embolden, once you start, then if you are strong commitment than you can do it.

I know God stopped me from going to the grave. It feels like this life is a second life. People pray to God to spare me and I was spared for a reason to use my life for helping people. Do you believe that? Yes, I strongly believe that I believe that this life is totally for a purpose and that is helping people let is doing something for the world and doing something for the betterment of the society and for girls and this. This is a second knife. This is a new life. You say when people talk about the way I was shot and what happened? I think it's the story of Malala a girl shot by the Taliban. I don't feel as a story about me at all. Does it really feel kind of separate from you? Sometimes thing one reason for for this is that I don't remember the incident? Yeah. So it does not make me feel like I was the guy who show. But she was just Malala the girl who was shot by the Taliban. She's, she has got this definition. She's she's not someone else for me for me. I am this person with a heart with strongly believes that doing something for your people is important and you should do how as much as you can. You say that you've never been angry at the men who shot you. Never not a moment. About an atom. Well, I think that in order to go forward, it's important that you have love in your heart and I want to have love in my heart. I don't want to have any hate any bad feelings in my heart and that that's what makes me more happy if I never had a why me moment.
