When she was just twenty years old she comes from a family of aviation and she calls herself a spoiled brat of aviation which seems a little harsh until you realize. She grew up flying where their father and a stagger wing. For most of her youth she learned to fly in tabora so at age nineteen got a private licence at twenty and she's been flying ever since she's worked for textron. Ao pa and now. She's currently the regional sales manager for the southeast for garment kelly. Thanks so much for joining us on the there. I was podcast so kelly. You have quite a hair raising story about flying your family back. In one. seventy two from gaskins white river resort on the way back to hicks airfield. You're flying. you're flying clubs one seventy two and experienced an engine failure. Yeah it was. It was definitely kind of the perfect storm of of situations because it was supposed to be a husband and my baby moon so to speak at seven months pregnant with our first child and had him in the airplane Labrador retriever in the backseats. Obviously mailo co-pilot with me. Yeah we were going to gaskins. White river resort for one last hurrah. It was a great trip really recommend going but on the way back i was over. Really ozark ozark mountains without many airports nearby and smoke in the cockpit. That was my first indication that there is something wrong. Obviously and i could tell. It was kind of an oily smell. But at that point it's just troubleshooting and making sure that i couldn't see that there is anything obvious. Obviously on fire or anything fatso. It's daytime is weather in issued is cleared a million Daytime midday without eleven noon timeframe. Okay in a about what time of years this this is november. So this is november last year. Okay great and about what altitude were you cruising it. So at that time. I was about to say it was about thirty five hundred feet. I wasn't up super high africa. Main reasons i was on fire away. I did not file a flight land as you know probably very few listeners would have this problem but when sediments fragment you probably need to stop somewhere young so we were we were kind of kind of just on an the our flight plan all away and having a good time and Joying enjoying barklay gut. It's the you had about a three hour flight or so home beautiful day. You just had a fabulous vacation with your husband. And you just kinda sauntering back really you know you're going to stop somewhere and you're up at three thousand feet which looks like maybe it's roughly a thousand feet ag l. or sos based on the terrain up there in that part of the country. And just flying back enjoying yourself until all the sudden you kind of start to smell a little bit of something in. Did you say you saw some smoke. Pretty much immediately fell the cockpit and you know when when that happens you always think through what that might look like in in just in our training figure out what your action plan is but until that happens to you. It's really startling. So the first thing i did was has started troubleshooting. Okay is it. Electrical is clearly a fire knows. I opened up the windows just to try to get some mayor his. Obviously i'm very cognizant of of what i'm reading that i'm you open. Open up the windows. He'll the cabin heat. Which is a crucial component. When it came down to it once they killed the cabin he smoke stopped so it was like okay you know. It's it smelled oil. A tell it was something like that and at that point dover might well pressure gauge and it was at zero at that point mike. My husband's a mechanical engineer. He's used overcrowded in a drone engines. Actually so he's very aware of of what that means is well. Luckily i was already talking to air traffic control since i was on the afar calling for that that type of a trip so immediately off with them and get them to try to at least for me to the closest

Shailene Woodley Confirms Engagement With Aaron Rodgers

"Shaly. Woodley has confirmed her engagement to aaron rodgers. Let's just say she's not exactly the man of her dreams. It's kind of funny. Here's what she told. Jimmy fallon yes. We are engaged. We are engaged for us. It's not new news. You know so. It's kind of funny. Everybody right now is freaking out over it. And we're like we've been engaged for awhile. He's office a wonderful incredible human being. But i never thought i'd be engaged. Somebody who threw balls rarely when i grow up. I'm gonna marry someone who who throws balls okay cheese. That was a very first interview about the engagement. I i will take some balls thrown up. I'll take all that catching the balls. All those all probably thinks it's that she doesn't know much about football that she's not really into sports. Maybe he's sick of being gushed about all the time i don't know but it's kind of funny. How she like. She says she's never seen the game. She's never watched him. She's everyone watched football. She knows everybody keeps telling her apparently to watch youtube highlights how great he is and she's just like nah part of his life right. Sometimes it's better. I was dating a rapper at one time. Which is name but he was pretty big rapper. But i wasn't interested. Because i wasn't i didn't understand. I didn't know his music. I didn't understand. And i didn't even know you know what level he was at and all my friends were like you. Gotta listen listen to the music but you you have to get into your partners thing just to be able to experience first of all. Y'all i love that you guys are like. Oh she's engages is fine. she's a football player. The only thing i could have seen in the interview is how upset she lean was that he did say that they were engaged. Like show was trying to keep it on the hush for mill. Because she was a we're engaged like he honestly and we always talk about it. The tables turn how men try to hide being in a relationship with women. But i feel like prochet. She is like one of those private celebrities. Who doesn't want to be in the spotlight. And who doesn't want. Yes because the danika or he hasn't been you know away from his other girlfriend. That rodney timelines timelines at the time. So as far as we understand they confirmed danika and erin confirmed their break-up in july twenty twenty seven months ago but she leans like we've been engaged for a while so she says so. Mike did they engage after a month. The data thought t's though oh don't do that about shayla little question of putting the way she leads says it as far as like. I don't know why it's such a big deal with engaged for so long and almost seems like they've been together for year exactly exactly. My problem is and i'm sorry she leaned. I really wanna be down for this engagement. There's something about him and he only dates famous women. That scares me a little bit.

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Candles with Louis Hotchkiss

"Has been like the most hotly anticipated episode for a long time because we are very big. Candle aficionados and our an our listeners are as well i have to ask you. How did you become the candle man. well for me Well thank you for having me first of all i'm really excited about this also I think it was until you guys contacted me. I didn't realize that i was an expert at anything. And then i had to think about it for a while but i started making candles and Kind of By accident We had started a product line Added started to do pretty well and We decided to add some candles to its fragrance items to it and that started to do very well and i asked a friend to make them for me and The friend was met was at that time. He was a key manufacturer of candles for estee lauder And our line started to take off pretty well for him and one day he came to me and he said hey louis. I've got some bad news. I have a project. That's probably gonna take me seven months to complete. So i won't be able to pull your candles anymore and so i said oh. Wow you know. What am i going to do here. And i asked him. What am i going to do. His name was jose was a an originally from italy and he said well. Why don't you come down to my place every day for like the next month and we will make all these candles together. And i'll teach you everything i know. So every drive to his place. We'd make our candles. I'd make the st lauder candles and it turned out to be fantastic experience I realized that at lunch every day. It's okay it's time to take a break and we would go into his kitchen in the place and we make pasta. Have a glass of wine. Finish it up with an espresso and a piece of chocolate. And i thought well i could get into this making. I want to hang out with the catch career scratch. That's how i kind of got into it and then we started to. He taught me a certain technique Added some of our own Personality to that and it just kind of took off from there and never stopped making candles since we have not stop making candles since this year will probably make for half a million candles. Oh my god and this is both for your own line kobo and also for brands which we cannot name because they don't want people to know not that bad but you know you are like let's say i am. You know insert famous brand here. They're not making their like. If i'm a big brand and i don't even use one because i don't want to mislead people but they don't necessarily make their own candles. They go to an expert. Who makes the best candles in the world. you know. So they'll go to you and you'll make their candles. That is correct. That is okay. Got most of the main candle brand's in the world. Don't actually make their own candles. What that's i have to say. That is really confusing. And i realize you're not gonna like namedrop. But why won't some of these big catamarans make thrown kanter. That's super confusing to me. I get like a fashion brand. Might not because it's like wide away. They want to put millions of dollars until like making a candle. That's going to sit at their cashier point and be like oh we also have this scandal you know but why would a big fat candle brand not make their own candles. Probably because the but most of their efforts into marketing and manufacturing is a whole nother process which requires a lot of energy and a lot of attention and a lot of the brands have developed through marketing campaigns so they might manufacture other products. They've they've probably do They might have some body care that they include in their line and they don't necessarily have the expertise or the energy to create all of these different areas for themselves. Got god is it safe to say making a candles way. More complicated than like mixing up a body lotion There's definitely different elements. Because you've got heat involved you've got you've got All these different vessels than different times so for example for us. Each different vessel requires the different wick. So you've you've probably you've probably had some candles that That you don't burn all the way to the to the ends of the glass for example. Yeah oh we're gonna get to some of those questions area in the different size. You've got the different. You've got the height the width the materials. The fragrance you have all those elements in In lotions as well lotions can be complicated as well. Because you have preservatives systems That you're putting into lotions. Also so i wouldn't say that It's much more complicated but It takes a lot more time to manufacture. Candle

In A Los Angeles Park, Worrying Signs Of Rising Homelessness

"Continues to pummel the nation's economy, There are troubling signs that more people are slipping into homelessness. NPR's Adrian Florido visited Park in Los Angeles, where this is becoming more visible every day. Echo Park is one of Ella's iconic public spaces. It has a big lake lined by palm trees and a postcard view of the downtown skyline. It's always had a small homeless community. But in the last few months, people sleeping in tents have filled half of the park's 16 acres. Jesse Brandy moved in four months ago after losing his job programming office phone systems. Everything's closed. Businesses aren't putting any effort into you know, telephone lines in programming those systems out of work. He couldn't afford the rent. So that left me with friends going through, you know, house the house and then became a burden. So So he came to the park and pitched a tent. There are people have been here before hand, but a lot of these people right here. This was because of the pandemic. Federal, state and local addiction moratoriums are supposed to be keeping people in their homes, even if they can't pay the rent during the pandemic. It says that who moved into Echo Park over the summer, said a lot of people like him have left their apartments anyway. Rather than fall behind on rent. I didn't want that hanging over me. Even though there was a moratorium on Enter and I didn't technically has to pay it. I'm not making money. So how? While my loading up on death, he said in addiction over back rent would hurt him for years. He recently found a temporary job working the reception desk it a tax preparation firm. Colleagues don't know He lives in the park. Which is why he asked me not to use his last name. Like I met people out here. They had good jobs. And then could the foreground. This pandemic is just, you know, I really hit him hard. There's even like families with kids here, you know, because of the pandemic groups that fan out to do. Homeless counts have put that off for now, making it hard to know how many people the pandemic has already driven to the streets. Just because there's no academic data does not discount our own eyes. Pete White directs the Lay Community Action Network, an anti poverty organization. Us traveling in communities where there were no house with people and there are now informal settlements everywhere. There is no dept that their arm or people on the streets Ella in California have had a homeless crises for years. And while officials are using pandemic relief money to get people inside White fears. What he's saying is just the beginning here and nationally. This crisis will on Lee get worse unless we figure out how to do all we can to keep people who are barely hanging on. In their homes. And for folks who are house list, figuring out cheaper and faster and innovative ways to get people inside. Brenda Modano moved into Echo Park before Christmas and says the community has formed quickly here with weekly meetings and all We get together. We discussed that girls, if anything wrong or what? What's going on? You know how many kids you could have? She was standing with stubble. What soy who was manning a table accepting donations for the parks residents. Shoes, toilet paper soap clothing. Ah, feel crappy about because by doing that I know that I'm helping some other people and that made me happy. So I moved into the park seven months ago, almost for the first time in his life, he said. 35 years after moving here from what they might let you pulled the business card out of his tent who started with so general handyman? I do I do. Drive one painting, plumbing, hardwood floor. That's what I do. So he says that when the pandemic struck work dried up the first night in his tent, he couldn't believe it, but everything happens for every zones. You're gonna get up on my feet. I know that I don't Don't get up. I'm going after I lost everything. He started recycling cans, he says, and scraping jobs together. Little by Little Adrian flooded. NPR NEWS, Los Angeles

"Who everyone welcome back to reimagine twenty twenty four. I'm roche mirage car from mouse and i'm one of your host for this event We are starting with our halloween themed for this event four events. And that's why. I'm dressed like this. I'm so excited to be joined here by jason loud. The coo at okay coin. Jason thank you so much for joining us today and let's start off just by asking you know. How has it been for you and your team just coping with the whole virtual situation The past couple months. Hey rush thanks for having me That's this is certainly been a challenge right a challenging year for for most of us and has been no different for our team. We were based here in san francisco. And i think the most interesting thing about this year for us has been that we've actually expanded our quite dramatically over the past six seven months. Despite the fact that we none of us have been in the office. Our office has been closed. And we've had Last i checked was thirty. New people join us over this this time so with thirty colleagues teammates that have never met anyone else on our team So we we we very quickly transition to doing everything online as most of you know everyone else is doing And you know that that's been fun and challenging at the same time. Yeah that's actually a cool little fact to start things off because a lot of let's say traditional companies are trying to down size or they're all they're already going virtual so glad to hear that you being one of the crypto companies in the space are are hiring and expanding. I'm a little more on. That front. looks like okay. Corn has been up to a lot of different things especially when it comes to licenses and regulations. I've seen a great push in the in the eastern market and even in asia What can you tell me about the importance for you. All of the asian market. And do you think that will that will continue to see more growth there or Do you think that the us 'cause you said you're in san francisco do that in the us. Some things will be will be yeah On that note we even just sort of on our licensing and compliance teams. We've we've added a lotta people specifically because we are sort of targeting this global approach to regulations and licenses and and the like So on your on your question. Around what our efforts have been And sort of what regions were looking at we are we're regulating here in the us We're also regulated in europe The the malta regulators. Over there we last year I might be getting my dates wrong. But i think yeah last year earlier this year we got our license in japan and so that that was a process that took almost two years to to accomplish so Big props to the team there as well as Working on our licensed today in singapore. So we've got a whole bunch of things going on And i think the important is that Licensing one it's obviously the the law right. We have to comply with what governments and regulators are are putting in mostly consumer protection. But you know putting in place to make sure that there's a building of trust in our in our space and to it permits us to access And sir bill that that Userbase with the with the backing of these regulators and permission right So so regulation is super important and then as we think about that. Broadly like i mentioned we do service users globally so not no. I don't want to say one region is more important than another But you know our heritage stems from originally founded in In beijing in two thousand thirteen and so we do have a very strong user base and brand recognition in asia will always remain a key. Focus point for us. We mentioned singapore mentioned japan. But all the parts of asia to hong kong southeast asia are areas that we we we certainly have have users and continue to grow that area

Andrew and his team have continued to check the camera high performance computer and inertial measurement unit that. Make up the navigation system on cruises. We can make sure that we can collect data from the camera. And then we can collect data from the i m you and that the computer can do the processing it's required to do but certainly we can't test out exactly what we're gonna do during landing but we can make sure.

Is Imposter Syndrome Even Real? with Rich Bracken

"Rich how are you today sir. Hey man how are you. I heard you miss the day of the week. I'm like i feel like the twenty seven months of twenty twenty twenty three. I'm just as lawson combined related in. Everything comes back to being grounded. When i get to talk to you so you man. It's good to see you yet. I'm really interesting to talk to you today. Because over the past few years and i've just heard piling up even more and more recently. Is this idea of imposter syndrome. And i've done my research. i've i understand. I feel like i've experienced it myself. But i also know there's another side to it at another camp to it so i wanna i wanna talk to you specifically about the different ideas behind it but just to kick things off rich in your opinion. What is imposter syndrome. What is it how do you define it. The biggest thing about imposter of that. I relate to in when. I think about what it actually is. expansion on. The typical definition of what imposter syndrome is so imposter. Syndrome is typically defined and discussed is not feeling that you're asked competent or worthy as individuals that are around you whether it's professional or personally or socially that you're not as good as everybody else's so you start getting into these inner voices of self doubt and self deprecation because you feel like you're not competent enough or you don't know enough or you haven't achieved enough. So why am i. Am this conversation with these other individuals. In where i think it also expands a little bit is to the performance because i think there are different elements to who we are and how we identify ourselves professionally and personally that we want to feel valued we wanna feel a part of the conversation it but then we start we start talking ourselves down off of that and that's where Posture syndrome to me. Starts creeping in becoming very detrimental. The that's the other argument side of things that a here though. Is that sometimes. This idea of imposter syndrome can be caused by jerks by people around you. You're in a bad culture and they're making you feel less than you do or maybe you do know last right. I'd definitely had people say you don't know what that is. And i'm like no while the that's why i'm asking like where do these. What sort of problems and of causing imposter syndrome is it. Just myself visit outside forces it a is it a mix. I think it's a blend of both. So when i think about my personal journey people that worked with previously is that there's something along the lines because again we if you think about the time line of your life from purity standpoint from a self doubt standpoint you don't have self down as a kid you really don't feel less than as a child. You're very creative. Your exploratory now depending on your upbringing your depending on how your family life or your schooling goes or as you get older as you get into any kind of extracurricular activities whether it's sports are to performance you houston start getting compared because that is win self-doubt sort creeping in a family situation that maybe you're talked to negatively. Maybe it's because your parents or your influences have been battling their own self doubt or in their own imposter syndrome. So they're trying to to rain that negatively down on you that could cause that so it could be an see that's planet or maybe cause. Middle school sucks for everyone in the middle middle school. Backer will change imposter syndrome to the middle school factor. Because everybody goes through that. I'm changing. I don't know what's going on it. We start really getting critical of ourselves because again like we don't start off that way. I've got two young sons and they don't walk around going really wish. I was better at coloring. That i am. They don't do that because they don't have that concept but has we get older and as we get into those extracurricular activities or comparative situations. Then once we get into our professional life. There's always competition and there's always comparison. There's this hierarchy of job descriptions of job titles and responsibilities. That really takes hold at that point. So i think it's a combination of both the early influences from social family standpoint but then also as you progress through your schooling get into professional life. It's that it's those determined to that. Really have an impact. On how you view yourself the idea of labeling things i think can be a powerful thing too because you can you can take it and set it aside and say and look at it and say okay. This is what that thing is a now. How can i address it. I know some people get heavy issues with labeling sings be but i think it's important powerful to be able to take these things that might affect you negatively. Be able to home them out and say okay. I'm going to set you over here on the table. I'm gonna look at you view this more. Three dimensional sort of aspect. Like what you're mentioning. Is it one outside. Four sets impacting me as a lot of outside forces. Impacting me is just my perception of reality of it's my perception of what's happening because i think it's okay to be in a spot where you're just learning and i think with all the things that we can consume. These days like podcasts youtube. All these different things on demand he can make you feel that everybody is further ahead than you are because you have all this access to these experts and you might not feel like that expert but if all you're consuming all day is these things about people talking about how much further they are along. Then you are. I can certainly make you feel that your of you experience rich. Have you experienced that in your career. One hundred percent in and actually there are several different types of imposter syndrome and the expert is one of them when so it talked about putting entitled is something there. Is that condition that you feel like. You've never learned enough in there for you can't do until you learn the right amount of things. But it's a cyclical problem. Because if i feel like. I can't do something. I can't progress until i learn more in learn enough. But i never feel like i learned enough that i'm never going to get to that point and personally from professional personal standpoint had numerous instances and again i go back to my definition of expanded definition of imposter syndrome. Where i wanna know more yup. I want to be as educated to be in the conversation as much as possible in and at one point in my career. I've tried to do everything about everything and that's

"seven months" Discussed on Little Gold Men

"So Divine Franklin. Thank you so much for joining us on the podcast talk about the new inclusivity standards for the academy. I assume it's been a really exciting couple days for us since since this was all announced. Yes exciting and tiring, and you know sleepless but we've been working on this for some time. So I'm beyond excited that we've been able to put this out and you. Now it's out in the world and the response has been what we've expected and it's really gratifying to finally been able to accomplish this. There were moments when I was like I don't know. If it's going to happen. It's such a difficult thing to do. But thankfully here we are on the other side of it. Yeah. I wanted to know how just free personally, how long have you been academy governor and maybe had something like this in mind or kind of wanted to make this kind of forward progress you I've been an academy governor for just four year. Before that I was a member, but I was chairing the a twenty twenty initiative for the past year before serving as governor, and that's basically overseeing our Jersey inclusion initiative at the time that it started even before I became a member and so you know serving in that capacity and really helping you know this effort of how to become more inclusive. Organization that really. Helped me tremendously. You know it really was like one of those things where I saw. Okay. Got It. There is a way to help the institution to serve. To really make contribution in. So from that, that is really what lay the foundation for me once they asked me to become a governor large. I immediately accepted it was a great opportunity to continue that service and you know working on these standards was part of it you know I do believe that. Is One of those things that sometimes you have to believe it, you have to work within the system in order to get it done but you starting before as governor. Now in being harder this process, it has been unbelievable. You know because you know when I started it wasn't like I said I WANNA go. This is the contribution I didn't know what the contribution other than just being ordered The way that the announcement of these inclusivity standards that announcement reference Oscarssowhite specifically, and that's me. You know been a really visible campaign for anyone who follows the Oscars and then watching the membership expand kind of immediately after that. But from the way you're talking it sounds like the membership expansion was one big step but there's been a ton of other conversations happening behind the scenes many years before any of us saw these announcements. Is A team effort there've been so many people behind the scenes, the academy staff and other governors and members that have been working tirelessly and fearlessly around. This issue and so you know just being able to now announce these standards. A really just represents the work that's been ongoing into your point you know Oscar so white that happened years ago, and that certainly was a catalyst without a doubt to stimulate tremendous change within the organization You know yet once that that catalysts happened the organizations doing this work in taking it very seriously and has made it one of the pillars of what we really stand for when when you say working fearlessly, what are some of the fear that you think either has to be overcome more like concert people outside that you Kinda have to set aside to push on something like this. I mean listen fear anytime you're changing We all face that fear no matter what is like you know we're experiencing new job or we gotta go get a new place to to live wherever there's changed their sphere. So you know. Being apart at the academy in US navigating this has been no exception. So some of the fear is, are we gonNA get a wrong? You, know, some of the fear is, what's GonNa be the criticism some of the fear is How will we be perceived some the fear is you know when you're charting a course for the future, it's very easy to look back to see how you got there much harder to say, okay. Here's where we need to go. We aren't sure exactly after taking is going to get us there there was a lot of fear of. This organization has this institutional knowledge in memory and we've done things a certain way. What happens if we do things slightly different and so these are some of the fears that we all had to face that we had to talk through that. We had to work through in when I say fearlessly I mean to take this on specifically. These new standards for this picture taken on. Requires a certain fearlessness because. Again the academy has been around for nine decades, this is the first time in the history of the academy where. The nature has happened. So it did require some fearlessness on the part of of all of us that were involved in you know in our CEO Don President David, and so many other to take this on and to say you know what we want to be on the right side of this, we want to be on the right side of history to be a part of the change that we want to see him in this industry, and as a result, we want to take a leadership position and we're going to do it by doing what we can do which. is to affect change around our our standards. Yeah. I mean the amount of detail in the announcement I really indicates how much thought process went into this and you guys said another interviews that you really you talk to studio heads and producers and sure a ton of other people. You just talk a little bit about what that process was like who all you had to check in with on all these steps to make sure that it was with accomplishable and also setting the standard high enough. Yeah. You know it's a good question. It wasn't so much check in with. It was really about constituency. It was really about community and what I mean by that is that sometimes you know our organization in has had a history of announcing things that will affect the industry in the industry finds out about it in the press announcement right and then the industries like blood house is going to work did. So we made a concentrated effort to. Not Do that. Changing these standards affects everyone that that is making movie. So the goal was one you know the BF I was really the foundation for which we you know they created the foundation and we use that foundation to modify the standards for our purposes. So one, it was really understanding from the what worked what didn't work what were some of the challenges and understanding those challenges as we began to to craft are set of inclusion standards, the other part of it was. Really internally for US coming to an agreement by. This is what we WANNA do in. This is how we WANNA. Do it now let's figure out the way to go about that. Once, you got the standards to a place where we felt like, okay this represents our intent of inclusion not exclusion. Then we begin the process of building constituency, and so we started that constituency with many majors majors to the Gills. You know we went to the writers guild we went to the producers we went to the directors guild and we had all these different meetings in image we talked about the standards we got feedback. So building this constituency was critical so that now as these standards are out. There is really a lot of support in the community for them the beauty of of being able to build that constituency before announcing was that we got that feedback early I mean there was a tremendous to your point, a lot of work and time ever consideration to make sure that these standards were representative of the intent. Now, they are not perfect right there. That's what we did want perfection in the way of progress and that was something that was really important for us. We like you know what we're never especially first time out going to be. Able to please everybody some I'm. GonNa say they go too far some are going to say Arna we understand but we got to get started because if we are be the industry and the organization that looks like the world then we've got a step in the direction where the world already is..

"So yeah, I have no problem with him his performance, and I am even the particulars of that side of the movie. Are handled. Subtly it's it doesn't turn into some sort of melodrama all of a sudden but but you know it's an interesting movie and I I like that it. Again was really actually interacted with the thing it was about or the setting it was you know took place. During that anything else you want to know about. No. Well, one thing I was thinking of. About like I guess was lacking from a virtual tiff for for for. The way in which things can permeate the larger conversation honestly is the red carpet like I know that there was a red carpet event is but I know that there's a lot of people who who like to watch. You know the actors that they're interested in watch the walk, the red carpet and when they do they're like. So, and so there Oh, it's for this movie that darn with this person on somebody to think about you know what I mean it is it is actual promotion for the film beyond like This person looks hot in this dress or whatever, and and not having that. As, just a reminder of who are the players this season, and what's going on just adds to the sort of dissociated feeling of of this particular event you know. Yeah, I mean yeah. To keep like raining on the premiums. No you're right I. Mean it's just there are so many ways in which not having an in person I mean yes it was in person for people local in Toronto. So I shouldn't discount that there were people go to movies in the city during the festival and still are. Not, having Preston all the attendant stuff there. You forget like actually how much of a springboard this thing really is Yeah Yeah I. Think about last year like I was walking down King Street, which kind of the main street in. TORONTO. Where the festival takes place and just heard like shrieking from in the distance and knives out premier was happening. So late for seven Sir, probably, Chris Evans have just got. Not only is there no recarpet for Christmas? Welcome but like there's no knives out studio movie to come like there's N-, there's nothing on that scale of like larger movies that will be coming out later in the fall to kind of bring attention to it to like you know there's not even an giang level thing know these films are very interesting and powerful and good but the the level of attention just can't be the same. I think about you know maybe the last movie I'll mention good Joe Bell starring Mark Wahlberg from Reynaldo Marcus Green. WHO's last film had a pretty successful showing at Sundance monsters and men and I think that good job L. at one point was inconsideration to go to Sundance and didn't, and then waited for the fall festivals now. Works and I wonder how that would have changed that movies profile. You know I, think it's a fine movie and I think it does some things really well, I thought it wouldn't, which is that it it doesn't. It doesn't become a kind of schmaltzy uplifting story it actually stays pretty grim and. An unforgiving of its lead character, and while we're doesn't mean whether or not anyone wants to actually follow his. Perhaps potential redemptive redemption narrative. We're who knows that's for anyone to decide but you just wonder like the movie like that with the Big star making an Oscar play. Didn't really make any much much noise doesn't seem to me so maybe it would have. A different festival or in a different year. Yeah. One less thing I would mention before we move on and speaking of things that the people will be able to see. In October on HBO David, Burns American Utopia will premiere spike Lee's film version of the Broadway show that you know stars David Byrne a bunch of talking heads songs. You might know from another concert movie stop making sense but this one is really wonderfully differen- on. It's so good. It was such a great trip back to a time when there were audiences in real theaters but also like not purely. escapist like it's in some ways about like having empathy and engaging with your society in voting, and it's such a thrill to watch I've already gone back and rewatch parts of it So all of you will be able to do the same thing it'll be on HBO in a month So. Fun. You talking about Katie in our wrap up really made me WanNa see I do not like concert films. I. Don't really like David Birth, music but I was like, okay. Now I I'm sold so. For us, it definitely is a concert, but it's like it's it's much more of a show then like even stop making sense says so I definitely think you should give it a shot. You can't see it on on the zoom recording on right now, but Katie is wearing a large suit in. Essence clause. Yeah. Like dancing with an yeah. Actually we my husband and I watched it and then we have since watched dot making sense and then last night he was watching the last wall so it's like really radicalized him on concert movies. Beware. If you watch. American Utopia, you might go down a real rabbit hole. Have I told by David Byrne story on this podcast no-one to hear it a friend of mine used to be worked for his management company and she invited me to every Thanksgiving at their at their offices in Soho. They have for friends and family competition where they give everyone a couple weeks ahead of time a Turkey molded plastic Turkey mold and you have to fill the Turkey mold with food. That's like in the shape of the Turkey but and they have like it's like a potluck and they taste it and someone wins. I think most of them were vegetarian or Vegan I went to this and met David Byrne and all these kids are running around and there were all these Turkey mold things on a table and everyone tried a little bit of them, and then there was an award at the end and then I left. That's close. But.

"So I don't I don't really know why it was a tiff but but yeah Kirby, you know Winds Venice on her way to a lot more and in those first thirty minutes of pieces of like okay. Here we go. But yeah then the movie like you said Katie, it just could never match that. Incredible twenty five minute single take. Yeah and I think part of that and I was tweeting about it because I didn't review because you did. It had thing of tragedy movies that kind of or just about the tragedy and not about the people they had happens to like, I don't really feel like I know any of this woman none of pieces. And I think that's really frustrating and it does make me curious what the what the director and writer a apart their partners romantically in filmmaking what they do next but I was expecting something that was really strong from start to finish into knock it up. Yeah. But would you agree that You know awards buzz wise and you know we should say New York film critics announced that they'll you know are you guys Richard will keep the awards in? December so awards are not quite as horrendously are off as we as we think we're not factoring in any of the January February releases. It's all just doing what came out in two thousand, twenty are. you nervous about that Yeah I mean I think it's I think it's good to stand firm and a principal in the National Board of review is is waiting till January to announce there's and they're considering all of those other movies. So we shall see I have I have fears that like certain things like nomad land will end up being pushed to next year and then it won't qualify. In terms of Kirby like absolutely I think the thing about it is that this is a movie that because of its subject matter I guess it is difficult but it talks about A. Fairly. Universal thing which is you know. Having a child that it will maybe feel accessible to people all strata of the academy home and people like a kind of rising star narrative and so I don't know I, feel like all the component parts suggests that this movie. Or her performance at least. Will stand the test of time and she's definitively lead in it oh. Yeah. She is the woman that is the titular woman Hisamitsu. Excellent yeah. Yeah, what else, Richard. Well. I I. Don't know I. Don't have awards eat as it's probably not. It doesn't even have distribution yet but this movie by j Blake's in called I. Care a lot with Rosamund Pike I thought it was so much fun. This dark nasty twisty little thriller. where. Pike plays a very immoral operator who has found all these loopholes in basically become a court appointed caregiver for old people and then just base it robbed them blind like sell their house because she has authority to do that and drain their bank accounts because she has the authority to do that and it all is sort of legal. So it starts as that kind of cold satire and then becomes this mob story in a way. That's also really interesting and throughout pike is just like. Operating on such a fun. Cool level. She's done really good stuff. I think since gone girl, but it's been little seen like a private war or hostels but this feels like the real follow-up role to gone girl It's a similar vein she's photographed similarly in it. I believe the first shot in I care a lot of Pike is of the back of her head and then she turns quite like in gone girl. So. They're not really even shying away from the similarities, but to see something amidst. Twenty five minute horrible birth scene and you know economic ruin in the American west to see just like a really propulsed give funny. Yes. Also cruel thriller was a nice respite and I didn't see it coming. I didn't really have any expectations for that movie and they were well beyond exceeded i. feel like I had a similar reaction to a very different movie but concrete cowboy which I didn't really know what to expect knew it was basically don't. It's got on a horse which you know as soon as you see that press imagery like okay I'll just tell you. Belong on a horse. This whole time turns out but it's this really like nice sort of like a parallel to know Madelyn, and it's about this real life subculture, this urban writing club in North Philadelphia, whereas you know primarily black men and women who are writing and taking care of horses and you know the image of a black cowboy, I think a lot of people like i. didn't know that existed and it made me think of the woman in the Oakland protests in. June. Who was riding her horse with the black lives matter sign it was. Like yeah, that's right. You pay more attention to me because among black woman on a big horse but as as kind of like Gra father and incapable McLaughlin, who you know from stranger things places son is kind of sent to live with him for the summer and you know he gets there and he's learning to bomb with his dad and there's a horse who he like has a special connection to and there's a girl who he talks to, and you know you kind of feel like you know where the store is going in for the most part. You do but the acting is really good. There's this really great performances from like real horse writers who are involved in the Rio Fletcher Club that you know I was having wash no madeleine I was kind of attuned to think it might be in there but they must be like local actors because they're really comfortable in front of the camera but no, they were real horse riders. So that was really impressive interest? Elba just has this great classic cowboy thing going for him but even you know in different context where he's like a former felony he's trying to. Help people ride horses as a way to escape gang violence and you know take control of their lives and just yeah I was really impressed with it. It was interesting world to escape into and I don't think it. I. Think it also doesn't have disruption yet but I would expect that one to show up somewhere pretty soon and it gives a great supporting role to the Great Lorraine, Tucson? Oh. Yeah. which is a fun anytime she pops up in something it's fun I agree with you Katie I think it it it doesn't sort of exploit denise world. It's centering on as kind of gimmick it actually does go into it. And make it a part of the film which I really appreciate it. I could I think the other half of the story with like Gerald Jerome's character I probably was less interested in yeah yeah. That's the part of it where it's like, Oh, it's a story setting like an urban largely black neighborhood I. Guess you know someone's going to get caught up in like drug dealing and violence but you know is a is a real part of life and you know make sense like a you know to show why this horse staple becomes such an important factor in the community drums pretty good in that part of it even though. You mean, his character, you're like, oh I. Think it's GonNa Happen to you. He's a real chameleon guy and It's he's such a pop of life anytime he shows up on screen. So yeah, I have no problem with him his performance, and I am even the particulars of that side of the movie. Are handled. Subtly it's it doesn't turn into some.

"The eleventh story from the personal stories section of the first edition of alcoholics anonymous published in thirty nine. It's entitled the Seven Months Slip and was printed only in the first edition of the book. This short cautionary tale describes a seven month relapse that followed carelessness and over competence after a year of sobriety in a and now the original story the seven month slip at fourteen years of age when I should have been at home under the supervision of my parents I was in the United States army serving a one year enlistment. I found myself with a bunch of men. None too good for fourteen year old kid who passed easily for eighteen. I transferred my hero worshipping to these men of the world. I suppose the worst damage done in that year in the army barracks was the development of an almost unconscious admiration for their apparently jolly sort of living once out of uniform. I went to Mexico where I worked for an oil company. Here I learned to take on a cargo of beer and hold it later. I rode the range in the Texas cow country and often went to town with the boys to whoop it up on payday. By the time I returned to my home in the Middle West I had learned several patterns of living to say nothing of cocksure attitude that I needed no advice from anyone. The next ten years are sketchy. During this time I married an established my own home and everything was lovely for a time soon. I was having a good time. Getting around the law in speak easies. Oh yes I outsmarted our national laws but I was not quite successful in evading. The old moral law. I was working for a large industrial concern and had been promoted to a supervision job. In spite of big parties I was for three or four years able to be on the job the next morning then gradually. The hangover's became more persistent. And I found myself not only needing a few shots of liquor before I could go to work at all but finally found it advisable to stay at home and sober up by the taper off method. My boss tried to give me some good advice. When that didn't help. They tried more. Drastic measures laying off without pay. They covered up my to frequent absences many times. In order to keep them from the attention of the higher officials in the company. My attitude was that I could handle my liquor whenever I wanted to go about it seriously. And I considered my absences no worse than those of other employees and officials who are getting away with murder in their drinking one does not have to use his imagination. Much to realize that. This sort of drinking is hard on the matrimonial relationship after proving myself. Neither faithful nor capable of being temperate. My wife left me obtained a judicial separation. This gave me a really good excuse to get drunk in the years. Nineteen thirty three and nineteen thirty four. I was fired several times but always got my job back on my promises to do better on the last occasion. I was reduced to the Labor gang in the plant. I made a terrific effort to stay sober and prove myself capable of better things. I succeeded pretty well. And one day I was called into the production chief's office and told I had met with the approval of the executive department and to be ready to start on a better job. This good news seemed to justify mild celebration with a few beers exactly four days later. I reported for work only to find that they too knew about the mild celebration and that they had decided to check me out altogether after time I went back and I was assigned to one of the hardest jobs in the factory. I was in bad shape physically and after six months of this I quit going on a drunk with my last paycheck then began to find that the friends with whom I had been drinking for some time seemed to disappear. This made me resentful and I found myself many times feeling that everybody was against me. Bootleg joins became my hangouts. I sold my books car and even clothing in order to buy a few drinks. I'm certain that my family kept me gravitating to flop-houses and gutters. I'm eternally thankful to them that they never threw me out or refused me help when I was drinking. Of course I didn't appreciate their kindness then and I began to stay away from home. On protracted drinking spells. Somehow my family heard of two men in town had found a way to quit drinking. They suggested that I contact these men but I- retorted if I can't handle my liquor with my own willpower. Then I had better jump over the viaduct another one. My usual drinking spells came on. I drank for about ten days with no food except coffee before I was sick enough to start the battle back to sobriety with the accompanying shakes. Night sweats jittery. Nerves and horrible dreams. This time I felt that I really needed some help. I told my mother she could call the doctor. Who was the center of the Little Group of former drinkers? She did I allowed myself to be taken to a hospital where it took several days for my head to clear and my nerves to settle then. One day I had a couple of visitors won a man from New York and the other a local attorney during our conversation I learned that they had been as bad as myself into striking and that they had found relief and had been able to make a comeback later they went into more detail and put it to me very straight that. I'd have to give over my desires and attitudes to power higher than myself. Which would give me new desires. Attitudes here was a religion put to me. In a different way and presented by three pass masters in liquor guzzling on the strength of their stories. I decided to give it a try and it worked as long as I allowed it to do so. After a year of learning new ways of living new attitudes and desires. I became self confident and then careless. I suppose you would say I got to feeling too sure of myself and Zoe I. It was a beer on Saturday nights and then it was a fine drunk. I knew exactly what I had done to myself to this old grief. I tried to handle my life on the strength of my own ideas and plans instead of looking to God for the inspiration and the strength. But I didn't do anything about it. I thought to hell with everybody. I'm going to do as I please. So I- floundered around for seven months refusing help from any quarter but one day. I volunteered to take another drunk on a trip to sober him up when we got back to town. We were both drunk and went to a hotel to sober up then. I began to reason the thing out I had been sober happy man for a year. Living decently in trying to follow the will of God. Now I was unshaven unkept. Ill looking bleary eyed. I decided then and there and went back to my friends who offered me help. And who never lectured me on my seven month failure. That was more than a year ago. I don't say now that I can do anything. I only know that as long as I seek. God's help to the best of my ability just so long will liquor never bother me. This concludes the reading of the seven month. Slip from the first edition of alcoholics anonymous. I'm grateful you listened. Stay tuned for the next episode entitled. My wife and I if this is the first time you've listened to this podcast.
