"So let's break one of those so we we're off to the races and you know it wasn't this formal discussion of like i would like to pluck this idea. And this idea from your pitches. It was just like kind of going with the flow of what you know al determined. We needed to break a room. And of course like it goes without saying that it is a well oiled machine over there. They've been doing it for multiple decades so you know like they know what their patterns are with that and especially al knows like how to take the certain ideas that are going to be best for a simpson story invest for an episode. i received. Some advice from tim long front of the show tim long before. Because i was freaking out. And he gave me great advice where he said you know when you're coming into pitcher ideas or you're writing about springboards. Just make sure that they feature the core family He said he doesn't which those are his words. Not mine right. he's basically just. She's somewhere between disco. Stu and smiling i and yeah just that it had a beginning middle and end that it was. That felt simpson's in a way that you know is like irrefutable. And of course you know having watched so many episodes of the show and been such a super fan wasn't a matter of like you know i feel like i'm just aping simpson's tone whatever anything so it wasn't about aren't we all. Yeah so i received that advice and that was very helpful and then coming into the room it was really me just as a passenger with al. You know driving the ship. And i was joined by other writers. Mike reece's there. He just in from new york he. You know before covid fluid for a day of the week every week which is so insane to me is so crazy like i know other people that are commuter writer. People like that i mean not many. It's just so wild cool. It was wild to have them there. Joel. h cohen was. There and john frink was there. I'm guessing. I never got to confirm with him. But i'm guessing the namesake of professor frank which felt like professor frink was there with me But they were all really lovely and really supportive and so. I think i'd just like flop sweat. My way through presenting my ideas that i'd submitted to al before and then he kind of guided from there where we would you know break in in what would fill out the episode and it was like really smooth process of like okay. What's it called. Okay it's called this okay and then what happens okay. This and it just felt it was really wild watching that process for them especially without like he's such like it feels like the way that he approaches. Creativity is in a very mathematical. makes sense. 'cause i know from his appearances on our show that like. He was a math major at harvard. And so it just felt very like okay and then this this a needs to meet this be divided by the sea and it was just really wild to see a story unfold in that way and have it be like in all the choices were correct like. Oh you know for the toy gory needs to you. Know like the switch needs to happen here and then the toys need to happen here and then you know this and that yeah i just feel. I feel so indebted to that room of other writers who while i was like freaking out and probably being way too quiet. We're filling in this space with their brilliant jokes and pitches and just really elevating those ideas to feel like they were actually achievable. But not only that but like really exciting. And so yeah. I don't know i've been blackrock. Them there are. There are a few things that i would have hoped to see in julia. Episode one of them hans momon which we got a quite fantastically this morning for calling. Yeah i definitely would have wanted to see mill house.

I'm not sure how directly you are involved with the return of puppy goo goo and the thing of a frog prince but that was very fun as a fan. This a lot of fun fun call. Yeah i have to credit the simpsons writers for those specific detail. But but still happy and other thing that i would have wanted in a simpsons. Episode is I feel like gil. I felt like was very amazing to see. And then of course to see that you got to have a whole segment that was dedicated to lisa was like just the coolest thing and the thing i was the most excited about and i actually shout of this So julia a few of our friends were at a Socially distanced completely safe outdoor viewing at a brewery when the episode aired and when horny.

Pauline and it was something like sixty thousand odd truce sailors who were sent to The former Hispaniola now Santa Man to cross the revolt once again. We see a difference in immunity to disease that proved decisive. That is to say that yellow fever was something to which the African slaves had a differential immunity. Rows Europeans had no immunity. They had no history of experience with yellow fever. And so what happens? Is that the French soldiers in Santa Man Begin to die at a rapid rate of a terrible epidemic of yellow fever. That sweeps through the Caribbean and especially through Sando Man. And what happens by of Tucson L'Ouverture which very aware of this and took advantage of it during the French troops not finding them in pitched battle but only small guerrilla campaigns waiting for the summer months to come an upsurge of the disease which happens and pretty soon the French commander right to Paris now. I'm only interrupting because we only have a minute. Of course. Haiti becomes the first country born of a slave rebellion as you are so graphically describing with an alternative view of history that many may not have understood the role of disease. But in this last minute we have I wanted to ask you about how pandemics and and what you think will happen now. I think those not one answer to that pandemics or all different and they end in different ways Some die out. Because of sanitary measures that people take against them so that were not vulnerable in the industrial world to cholera or typhoid fever. That are bad through the oral fecal route because we have sewers and unclear clean safe drinking water and other diseases like smallpox because of a on dachshund the development of a scientific tool so sort really depends Some diseases are not very good candidate. Candidates offer vaccines and I would say that. Good Cloven nineteen. I'm sure that we will develop a vaccine but I also fear that it may not be the at won't be the magic bullet that people off believe that it will put this behind us because the sort of features you want are off for an ideal candidate like smallpox vaccine that doesn't have announced reservoir so it can't return to us. A vaccine is an ideal candidate if in nature it produces a robust immunity in the human body. So people having once added are totally immune for life that doesn't seem to be case with a covert nineteen so I expected to become long-term with us. We're going to have to learn to live with this disease. It's probably going to become an endemic disease and so we're going to have to adjust. We're going to have to leave it there and I wanna thank you so much.

That's essentially what he said on return. Did He also talk about people? Having to change their hearts and minds to deal with the school. Catastrophe stole the second thing he said done. He said we must be prepared and people said well. How do we prepare? And he said the first thing that happens is we need to change our hearts and minds. Because that's the premise. For everything else that we need to do. Professor Frank Snowden you have long studied epidemics and I was wondering if in the brief time we have together that we do have the whole show if you can go back in time to Do bannock plague and very briefly talk about the black death caused by a bacteria then move onto smallpox. How it wiped out indigenous people from Haiti to the United States. And its connection to this caused by a virus. It's connection to Colonization to colonialism. Start with the black death. Absolutely the black death reached Western Europe in thirteen. Forty seven at broke out. I in the city of Messina in Sicily on spread through the whole continent and it lasted until in Western. You're at the story to the East is rather different but in Western Europe. The last case was once again in. Messina in seventeen thirty four. So Don makes a mess. I have my mouth wrong Four hundred years on an which should ravaged Europe and killed extraordinary numbers of people. Now this is a disease spread by fleas also by and they're carried by routes it's also can be spread through the air in the pulmonary form and it's extraordinary lethal is something like fifty percent of those who got the disease from being bitten by fleas off perish if nowadays we have antibiotics but the time of the blocked up. We didn't of course and so fifty percent of those afflicted died and the pneumonic version of the disease is one hundred percent lethal even today. It's almost one hundred percent lethal unsold on. This is an extraordinarily dangerous disease. Its symptoms are also extremely On October full painful and dehumanizing in patients die in agony and this can it strikes very quickly and so people can also also be struck down in public and so this becomes a terrifying public spectacle as people collapse in the streets. People suffered from. What bows these massive inflammations of the lymph nodes? Yes that's as the disease spreads from the flea bind to the lymph node There's a massive inflammation and you have swelling lettuce. Say in your thoughts by or under your armpit or in your neck off. That's maybe The size of an orange on a large naval orange under your skin and was said to be so painful that people even a jumped into the dot in London into the Thames into the Arno in Florence to escape from the agony of this Terrible pain their suffering but there were other symptoms as well the terrible fevers and also collusive nations as people It has neurological effects. That's part of the dehumanizing side of it there are. These skin discoloration there many symptoms. And it's a fairly dreadful in horrible disease. It's still exists by the way are people who think that it's just a medieval disease. No on there are something like three thousand people around the world to die. Bhubaneshwar play every year and some a trickle in the United States in the South West in particular where there is a reservoir of it. So it's still there in Arizona who wanNA play. Yes I knew someone. In Arizona who got the bombing plague because of their deceased chronic endemic disease of prairie dogs on in the southwest of the United States and if pet dogs are taken out into areas where the prairie dogs live? They can have an exchange of fleas and the fleas can be brought back to a hotel or military. And that's what happened to my friend out. There were contaminated. Fleas are in the room where she sobbed and therefore on she came became a on. She survived but was a victim of bombing plague in the twentieth century saucer. Snowden you talk about the bubonic plague the responses to it being quarantined the sanitary cordons mass surveillance and other forms of state power. And I also want to follow that through with these pandemics. Is You have You also scholar. Fascism and the direction countries can go when such crisis happens one of the things I think if a fifteenth century Florentine were to come back than tun machine today to look at what we as a society. You're doing it would he or she would find Etta rather familiar landscape. That is to say the things that you're saying or adopted and divine a self-protection by the Italian city states that were at the center of the trade in the Mediterranean. And so were repeatedly scourged so yes. There was this terrible disease and they dealt with it by creating health magistrates. We call them boards of health by creating the first forms of personal protective equipment p. p. e. the mask long gowns. Social distancing hospital systems are for dealing this with this one single disease the measure of quarantine quarantine even being an Italian word of quote onto for forty days because people were locked down for forty days before they release it had sanitary cordons all of this Was part of the defensive measures. Are that we see today on the was were also present during the Spanish influenza. Public Health wants a legacy of the bonnet plague. So while we look at these terrible events we also need to remember that human beings are inventive and that there have been silver linings the development of public health development of science and scientific medicine or also gifts of these terrible events and indeed. I would say dot the modern state and is also part of it was molded in art by the need for a centralized authority as part of our life protective system so yes Vanek. Plague does not entered defected every area of society. It's not true to say that pandemics all do the same things. There are some things that have been repeated again and again during the bubonic plague the black death the first years of it there was this horrible surge of antisemitism across Europe in France and the Rhineland northern Italy elsewhere and this was the first Holocaust when Jews were persecuted and put to death. Not just in spontaneous ways by crowns but the bureaucratic apparatus of political authorities or used to torture. Jews into submission ought to confessing crimes. That of course they had never committed and then they were judged and burned the holy Roman Empire for dead this local authorities in a leaders of city state. So this was a systematic Purging and killing of Jews who were talked to have or the so that case against them was that they were trying to put an end to Christendom. And we're poisoning the wells of Christians and so you have Jews tortured broken on the wheel. Burned alive run through by the sword and so on so this. Xenophobia is This blame US scapegoating. We see that today with the corona virus. Something that can happen has repeatedly happen with the idea that this is a Chinese disease It's a foreign disease were told. And therefore shutting borders against China and we see that Chinese-americans children being attacked on schools. Americans afraid to ride alone on the New York subway and arranging traveling groups. So they won't do that. This is part of a long term legacy of these and we see it in Europe is well On. Chinatowns were deserted long before the corona virus actually arrived the right wing. Nationalist politicians of Europe have been using that saying it's been imported by immigrants So that's the one of the The false stories That's followed in the wake of this. So that's another really terrible A recurring feature of these pandemic diseases. They don't always lead tune your asking about disease. Always increase state power will certainly the black death in eastern Europe are worth AUTHORITIARIAN COUNTRIES? And they use these draconian. Violent Mattress Yes it was part of their assertion of power. Indeed this is one reason that these draconian measures appealed because rulers. Not Knowing what to do. This was a set gave the impression that they did. They knew what they were doing. They were taking decisive measures and so it was thought that these sorts of measures would possibly be effective and would certainly be a display of power and resolution. So we can see that happening but let's take the Spanish influenza of nineteen eighteen when again It's a good comparison today because it was the time it's a respiratory disease. It was terribly a much more contagious than this deadly. Something like one hundred million people are thought.

But I think it's such a great bit of commentary that if a if a if a group of people will back something and say, it's okay. It is okay. To certain people, even if it obviously does not have the right morals. Right. Like that we live in exactly like what that point is kind of making like, hey, if like if this group of people say, it's okay. It's okay. Even if they have the most horrible things ever, right? But that's also a sly commentary. And I mean, we are minute to in this episode, and they're going this debate. I don't know. But like if that's just like commentary on you know, sort of PTA groups and other opponents of the Simpsons implanting dangerous messages into our kids brains. That's sort of a commentary and that, but then in that same way, I'm like isn't all of the Simpsons commentary on that fucking pass at joint, right? We're getting high in here. This won't be get a couple more jokes at other types of cartoons. It's making fun of themselves mostly. But basically, you get this guy who's kind of a Hanna Barbera like type creator who's just doing the old timey. Yeah. Comedians. Yeah. Of course, like you get Frank professor Frank say, I love Frank. That was another reason why chose this is just like a one on one with Franken it. Yeah. Walk us through the Frink moment because it's so good. There's the guy on stage and he's talking about like the tiger. He does Jackie Gleason and the the Bayer, which is just the cowardly lion. The wizard of Oz. And then Frank stands up and because. What what do you like klutzy cat? Sounds just like Jerry Lewis. Yeah. Which of course, is so great because obviously that Jerry Rice inspired character. And another thing about the Simpsons that that great thing where it's like, oh, this is why parents watch why I watched as a kid and rewatch it so valuable because I didn't know who the hell Jerry Lewis was when our child, but now I'm like, I was like that guy. Just sounds funny. Andrew parents are laughing. Martin later understand. I think also when you're a kid the way that they write it an animated in package it into the episode contextual. You can understand as a kid like this is supposed to be funny. You know that he's yelling at a man. And isn't that always entertaining? Moment. Following is very funny of Homer. We get the itchy and scratchy like old school, you know, commercial of the cigarettes extra tar cigarettes. We we get a lot of stuff in that. Including kind of just like, you know, the the different type of characters you'd have in those types of commercials and how like odd and maybe problematic. They were. I just can't stop smoking. Starts coughing. But the the best, of course is Homer watches. This an Allen tell the action. Just make out because if they were. It's so great. I love it. Good Homer being one be late. And I this is playing into what the central theme of this episode is going to be is his intelligence, but I love like everybody's already had their reaction to something else. And he's one step behind like. And there is something always entertaining. It kind of links him to grandpa away where he's like very old school prudish in some ways. I just love it when that side of him comes out because it just feels different right? Because as we know from Homer's phobia, it's not as though he's homophobic or or anything like that. But the idea of a cat and mouse making out is like very upsetting. The team. And he and if he's the only man on that team, then we're having a good time. At this point. We get into the moment. We're Homer realizes that. There's this company that does like the motion motion capture animation. And so what would this at this point two thousand one Lord of the rings would have probably been out and about I think the prequels for Star Wars. Yes, there was there. This was hot time.

I got the new big boy ipad, and I hurried Li I said, I said Honey you watch watch watch watch some cartoons. I'm gonna go the office and. I'm going to restore my ipad. And I got there. And I went because I have a retina five K I Mak from two three years ago. The first retina, Camelback, let's I still got them, and I stood there. Like like, my late stepfather holding a chord with two different things ongoing. Back and forth. And I realized at my office as it stands. I did not have any way to go from this particular machine to USB see that I know of. It is funny. I don't have that either. I've I've got a bunch of.

I have a bag that up until this week was real good for that purpose. It's just you know, you're the one who studied math. You're the engineer. But my if you think about it used to be mostly as simple as you go on the road with whatever, and you need some kind of little plug thing that goes from USB a two thirty pin. And now over time as I got more other devices non apple devices that became microbe usually mini ESP mini account for that. So in that case, I was getting wrong, whatever the wind is this flat and popular. I got I got that kind this reversible. Flippable right where you can put it in either way, and it usually works because I would always get it wrong wrong. More than fifty percent of the time. I got one of those all those. But the problem is then then you start getting into this weird. Like anytime, you draw that do that network drawing with more than a few dots. And connect all the dots. It becomes hopelessly. Confusing. You add to that mix. And now all the sudden, I I dunno. I feel professor Frank or something. Several different. And honestly, there will certainly be things where I complain about apple today. I'm honestly not complaining. I'm just noting that like I thought I had thought I had a wired, man. I had the literally had the anchor hub the USB hub. That was great for going on the road. I've got I'm I'm pretty like stored up at this point we having devices charge faster between ipads and iphones. I've got the higher powered USB adapters. But now I need to revisit the whole system. I have a go back where I can just throw in a suitcase and no to a certainty that everything from the apple watch to the fit bit to the MAC to the ipad does will all be taken care of. And I knew I'd be good. I do need to revisit that. And I think it's going to possibly get more complex. You know? It is weird because it doesn't seem like there's too many things out there. Right. Most of everything I've gotten either needs, you know, the lightning or than the US now, but you still have some lightning. I'm let's be honest up. Until you know this week. But then you've also got your at your oddball devices that need the I don't even know what it might grow might many was the one that was was not even that many many was the one that was that the Android issue one. That's taller. Yeah. And like a trapezoid, right? Kind of. And then the one in what like everything else is my devices as micro, right?

Is still up in the air it could apply to Mexican imports above a certain quota or it could apply to future cars made in. Mexico that's long the, rule of origin tests this would. Really have a chilling effect on any sort of new foreign direct investment, initiatives in Mexico and Canada that. Measure if it's included could bring more plants back to the US but analysts warned beware unintended consequences if more vehicles are made with expensive US labor. Prices could go up or if more imports pay the twenty five percent tariffs. Prices could go up and that could be, the tradeoff for any reassuring of American auto jobs in Washington I'm Scott, Tong for marketplace I was in Minnesota the past. Couple, of days, as I think I mentioned and you're pretty much couldn't turn around, without somebody they're talking about the state fair something like two million people.

"Oh, well, it's heavily between professor Frank and and a radio DJ who is trying to say funny things, but that's the case of tiger that first time the PGA tour is terrible. Who are the best golfers outside of Tiger Woods routine Goosen Jim furic, Ernie Els, but Ernie. Els even midway through his sing had a day or two. Yeah, but that's it. I mean, those are the guys you had to beat now. It's a laundry list of guy 'cause they're all good. 'cause they all hit the ball. As far as tiger does. They all have the short game that can win on a Sunday. None of these guys grew up worrying about Tiger Woods is lurking over my shoulder the they ask you the US golfers now, hey, what you think of, you know, the gallery's going crazy. Tiger says it was kinda cool man to hear that for tiger. Yeah, there was kind of fun. There's not the old Mr Stark. I don't feel so good Tigers. I think he's doing something on. Seventeen, and I'm not happy about that. I mean, that's not that not the way it goes anymore. There's a good for him. The sheer numbers are too many to overcome where okay, tire could play well enough to overcome thirty guys, but if there's thirty five that are ahead of him when he's within five shots lead well, you know, those guys are going to play better. He that that's the biggest thing when you talk about Tiger Woods trying to win and why it's going to be impossible from to win anymore. I keep it at one and a half. I mean, honestly, I keep it at one and a half because do I think he can win one, yeah, but winning more than one, I don't know and that the open should have been one of those one that should have been the one and a half instead of looking at it as Tigers back in the glasses have full, you have to realize it that was a missed opportunity. It's like getting the Super Bowl. Oh, it got Super Bowl, we lost. Here's you. Gotta win. You gotta win. This is not all proud of our team and we got there. And as time goes on, you forget who wins and who loses. No, no, you get that get. You got to win. There's no moral victory out of getting to the Super Bowl when you're within five holes of winning a major on Sunday, you have to win. Especially if you're Tiger Woods, there's no all that's that was a good moral victory. Yeah, you're the first or your last and certainly the one Bali to go. I like that. You're first of your last. Yeah, good. Put a Bob cat and your car in the way home. That'd be great. I wanna see how how much quicker I get, but the idea that he's at least playing with regularity. We'll take that victory and I'm sure the PGA tour and all the gulford and their paychecks thank him for showing up on a weekly basis, trio of golfers at three under par leading midway through day. One of the PGA championship Tiger Woods with a birdie is now one over par for the day as he is on the back nine of his round today, we'll keep you updated on Tiger Woods rest of the day, the PGA championship.

"Scam investigation Complicit media ran wild with their hair on fire condemning and convicting Trump right and this, isn't this exactly what Comey wanted to do and he admitted it when he would testify. Before congress he said he took his private memos many believe. They were classified memos from the government, he should never have released to his law professor Frank but he said he shared his intention he said I wanted. To whip up the media effectively to launch a special counsel probe. So he's, admitted that, was the plot all along Yes in fact I think quite a bit of time in the booking one. Chapter identifying what laws I James Comey trial awaited It is a, crime to, steal government documents he signed a piece of paper that said anything I do with my employment. Include writing presidential memos poverty. Government not Kinsey is not allowed to take it out of the building and. Converted to his own that's exactly what he did and there is some. Evidence. That documents, he leaked contained classified information so much so the FBI had to, do a cleanup and containment of that leak So you know there. Are investigators you need to be investigated appropriate prosecuted right do you believe Many members of the freedom caucus lawmakers have been calling, for a new special counsel to be appointed to look into the FBI corruption that took place but also the formation of the whole special counsel and going. After the Trump campaign because they argue as you do in the, book investigator can't investigate themselves they're not gonna prosecute. Them selves are members of their own, team but it's Jeff Sessions hasn't, wanted, to, do that he's just push this off to the I g and made people say well no that doesn't work because the I can't do a proper investigation. Because he can't interview a lot of the key figures like James Comey who've already left government? So why isn't, Jeff Sessions appointing special counsel doesn't he see, all the, corruption? Has taken place Well unfortunately and sadly Jeff Sessions is He, should, never argue, in the book He. Cited the wrong regulation when he did so any appointment, of a special. Counsel was illegitimate illegitimate read the regulation Must I be specified was not this, is always been In. Search of the crime How many cases of Trump Russia collusion Have been presented so far zero right and Muller should never have accepted you job. Because he had multiple conflicts of interest three of them Rosenstein who oversees it should have disqualified himself at. The outset because he's a team witness you can't be a prosecutor and. A witness all rolled into one show this. Was an illegitimate investigations from this stark there was never any probable Pause no intelligence counterintelligence probe and call me in the FBI violated their. Own guidelines in launching investigation do you believe. Are Rosenstein should be impeached Well I think he possibility begins to gain in, impeachment conviction in the US Senate would. Require two-thirds I do think that rod Rosenstein Has continued to. Obstruct Justice right congress with contempt He, should, be, held. In contempt swore define lawful subpoenas congress right concealing evidence in hiding. Documents continues to do so up to this date do you think maybe a. Better work around the maybe a p impeaching him it's just having the president. Declassify, a lot of this information, if he can obviously if it's if. It's gonna jeopardize our national security won't do it but congress has arguing that congress arguing that he could declassified like more. Details about the FIS applications and other key information then congress wouldn't have to be relying on be subjected to. These heavily redacted documents from the FBI or documents. They just simply don't get because, the? DOJ keep stonewalling Well there are twenty critical redacted pages Faisal warrant application should be. Classified handful of people have seen those they had said it does, not jeopardize people in methods. And I the president should declassify does, and as I understand it from sources. That would be a real eye opener there's also the documents. That, needs to be declassified and Rosenstein Handover the documents that. Detail origin of the launching of the Trump Russia investigation because I, think you'll find revealed that. They violated as arguing the book their, own guidelines because they did not have. Evidence to justify a criminal investigation more intelligence for counterintelligence bro Great guy just, want to ask you know I was able, to obtain Peter Struck stacks and Lisa page what about you know Andrew McCabe. Or call me or? Other key players like Nelly or are there's a lot of key players who are involved in this whole conspiracy? If you would to compile this dirty dossier and the work with the Russian spies Washington formats that GPS all of that why have we not why hasn't congress the public, scene Relevant texts from these other people it does he not have. A have them or? Is he just not disclosing them Well if, he has. Not disclosed by the second report, focuses not on Hillary Clinton's Email I The second report will deal with Trump, Russia case and I think there may be some very revealing information with that report.
