"Action for their lineup is out. DJs leading off it second base. That's normal, right? Aaron judges batting second bought. He's D H ing so half a day off is, they say? Aaron Hicks is batting third and playing center field. Glaber Torres is cleaning up in playing shortstop Sono Giancarlo Stanton. He is not the lineup in game on Mike Ford is gonna bat fifth and play first base and aloof void. Miguel and Du Har is back to his old position. Third base So no Geo or Shelagh Mike Hochman is in right field batting seventh, right little different lineup here today. Very different, and it's going to continue because no Gary Sanchez Kyle Higashi Oka is right about Ethan catch. And Brett Gardner will bat ninth and play left field. So Sanchez Stanton Shelagh void. Amongst the regulars. That is not a pigeon wondered who's pitching these games. Tanaka pitch in one of these games, so no, it's going to be Jay happen. Game one, and apparently, they're going to use the opener on the old game, too. I was thinking, and I because I've never really given a seven inning game much thought because it didn't exist. I was honestly thinking the Yankees and the Mets both have these really special aces. You know Garrett, Colin Jacob the ground Would you kind of rather not use them in a seven inning game? And that that may sound weird thinking while they could go pitch to click and seven right, But then a part of me also thinks But isn't that more valuable? In a game? That's nine innings tohave a guy that could go deep into a game like if I have to use my bullpen Mawr in a seven game, Wouldn't you rather do it in a seven inning game than a nine inning game? Does that make sense? Ah. Yeah, I guess. I mean, you look if Garrett Cole was coming up the pitch today, I mean, I'm pitching him, You know, I mean, right, you probably be able to go seven with him. I mean, you would think, but in a way, let's say because that's good. By the way, Joe, that's gonna happen on Saturday. Gerrit Cole is scheduled to pitch on Saturday. The have another double header to your point. You're going, You're going to see him, but I'm thinking If I get dominant Gary Cole or dominant Jacob deGrom, and they have reasonable pitch counts, and let's say Gerrit Cole pitches. Seven great innings in his pitch counts 85. That's great. It's a complete game. But does it almost feel wasted when in a nine inning game? It may serve more value than having to go to your bullpen. I understand what you mean. I mean, I get it. I guess it's weird. Look, none of this makes it more so a president that it's crazy. I mean, you know, I mean, seven inning games. I mean, you know, I never thought I see that. But then again, I never thought I'd see what would happen the pandemic. We've got a serial assault because of something that I was figuring in my lifetime. I see something like that. So look, take the minor things because obviously the pandemics are quite bigger. Take the minor things. You never thought you'd see. The Yankees play the Phillies in a seven inning double header and Yankees of the whole team came one Philadelphia Start with Ah, a runner at second base to start extraditing that kind of stuff. One baseball team is shut down for nine. Bryce, right, and it causes still shut down, right? Well, the Cardinals were shut down, but they're going to resume activities on Friday, Friday, Okay, That's their back. Everybody actually playing for once we will. Yeah, right now, in this moment unless things change, and they may Friday, is going to be today in which everybody plays and You know, they don't want T con infringe on someone's privacy by saying they tested positive for covert, but it becomes obvious when you're not in the lineup. So we now know that Paul Dae Young met killer and Yadi Molina, who also has been known to question that has been the mean wolf in their own ways. Unfortunately, both have covert. We wish them all the best, but they're two of the Cardinals to I think of the seven Cardinal players. I think it is. I think it the total with seven players that added, it is a bunch of staff members, but they are going to resume action on Friday on play the clubs over the weekend. In fact, they're scheduled to be the Sunday night game. The Cubs Cardinal game is scheduled to be the ESPN Sunday night game so I'll say hopefully all this happens, but the Marlins were indeed back. We mentioned earlier They beat the Orioles right out of the gate. They're playing a double header today, too. So they got a seven inning double. The bets are off tomorrow in any place mall is three at shit that shake at the city, right? You can call it shit. Yeah, No, I know, but I'm still called it, Shea.

"All. Right. Everybody. If you could take a seat towards the front afterwards, you are welcome to look around. You like sit in. Okay. What is original is the brick. By the white plaster. Floors would have had wooden planks on it. What else is original? Is the beams and ceiling above you. Pulpits Ellen deny slid into the pews of the restored Wesleyan Chapel in Seneca falls along with the students visiting women's Rights National Historical Park Ranger Emily described the convention that took place there in eighteen forty eight. The first to focus exclusively on the rights of women at a time. When they had almost none the KRISHA coffin Baugh, she takes the stage. She addresses the audience. She tells the women do not worry about your education and she essentially tells the men to a main for remain silent the first. It was a complete reversal of social custom. Men were not allowed to speak the first day anyway, and women's voices were welcome. No matter, their schooling, the audience, local residents, husbands, and wives. Some children, plenty of activists settled in for two days of rousing speeches from the Krisha Elizabeth and others. One of the most prominent was Frederick Douglass, an early supporter of women's suffrage incentive. The only African American in attendance. Emily had earlier shown students is statue. And this is who we have here. The most photographed man of the century. Now Frederick Douglass is what they call a self, the man's pated slave, which is a really fancy way of saying, he escaped slavery. He's living in Rochester at the time and publishing. The northstar abolition newspaper. We'll talk more about Elizabeth cady stanton quickly got to the main business presenting the declaration of sentiments, resolutions that she drafted just three days earlier. It was a damning description of the second class status of American women. And it was modeled on something very familiar to these. Americans. Whose grandparents had fought the revolution against Great Britain. And she intensely base it off the declaration of Independence, which famously states we hold these truths to be self evident that all. Men are created equal. Now, we could debate all day long with what they meant by men. Elizabeth going to be leaving anything up to debate her declaration. She states we hold these truths to be self evident that all men and. Women are created equal and just like those colonists in seventeen, seventy, six listed their grievances against the crown. These women and men are listening to grievances against men Elizabeth started with a grave charge. The history of mankind is a history of repeated injuries and usurp patience on the part of man toward woman. He has never permitted her to exercise her. Rights to the elective franchise. He is compelled her to submit to laws in the formation of which she had no voice. He has made her if married in the eyes of the law civilly. He is taken from her all the right in property even to the wages she earns. He has endeavoured in every way that he could to destroy her confidence in her own powers to lessen herself, respect into, make her lead, a dependent and abject life. The accusations were adopted unanimously. Then Elizabeth read eleven, resolutions, demanding women's equality legally socially religiously including this bombshell at number nine. Resolved that it is the duty of the women of this country to secure to themselves their sacred right to the elective franchise. The right to vote. It was such an outrageous idea. Even Lucretia Mott feared it would make them look ridiculous. So radical even Elizabeth's husband found a convenient excuse to be somewhere else. So subversive it may only passed when Frederick Douglass added his I Raid Emily wanted to be sure the students on her tour appreciated the shock value and the importance of that demand for the vote. She wanted them to understand how truly powerless women were, how critical it was to get their own vote, their own voice to change laws. So she hasn't do a bit of role playing as a married couple, abby and Alexander. Abbey. Worked at a mill while her husband drank away most of the money. This was not unusual. We watched as emily got the students to appreciate Abbey's situation where their job at the local mill. Avenue. And once again. As. She's a woman. Man. Even, mean trump. chiller. Napkins now. He. Knew. He does she's been sentenced who? Questions the next debt. Few. Days when. We. Give it. Discipline as has every. Right to do. I'm taking you to jail. WHO's GONNA be your work? Man. Man Jury. Man. Abby wasn't real, but her situation was. Women were at men's mercy and without a voice in the government, they had no chance of changing laws that was the point of Emily's next question to get them to see the vote as a tool for social change to understand the value of the Seneca falls convention. Emily did not count on the mindset of one young member of the metoo generation looking for a swifter solution. Fishing way. Out. To poison his current. Home. The wrist of. Adultery. I had to really laugh when she said that poison his drink. Talk About Direct Action I, Know Ranger Emily was going for the legal route. So she switch gears and tried another role play. She asked the students to consider the concept of granting children, ten year olds. The right to vote. They rejected it instantly. So why shouldn't a child today? Not, mature. But. I mean like a ten year olds, mines is completely different from anybody. Else's even if they grew up in a household where they were forced to be mature, they're not going to be matured to the point where they know everything that's going on around some kids will understand what to vote for or. They don't know enough about politics. Okay. What else? Face shrimp field the lake. Pick the future for country oh future. y'All collector on young sang. Eighteen forty eight, this is why it's so radical. It's like Santa Kit can vote. Yes. Bingo the students. Got It. They connected their own biases towards children voting to the sexism of society in eighteen, forty eight. That's why emily says, she does this I love it. It's a passion. They don't think they realized how desperate many women's situations where I just don't think they realized to the degree that women were subjugated and oppressed. The women's Rights Convention at Seneca falls didn't instantly up in the world. But. It led to more meetings, Morgan housing, more passionate supporters who created a movement. Something had stirred. Something had changed. The Dry for women's participation that had.

There's a bit of kit outlets. You'll round there I'm the other focus that's coming on a misdemeanor see through the seapower rookie reached on is whether tackler is now being asked to go. to get rowing out of the game into roll towards the sideline sideline. I think be. An really interesting thing to see develop comey. You've probably seen that on the we haven't quite we haven't seen up. Hey Yeah. I'm looking forward to seeing how it comes through to those. The real things that looking to to address to make sure that the tackle I'm is refereed as it was intended to be refereeing I'm I'm we sudden switches, we suddenly become an enemy number. One thing we saw our weekend while not the penalty countless north of thirty on both games. Anyone with long. So it's not so. That's a a horror story waiting to be written in the media a normal at a normal getting like that. But that's what we can say as we all get used to that change of behavior from the players, and then we actually referee as well. So that's what we're. Now being asked to see I'm a camera have actually seen it that you'll ever know you refereeing just those law changes. At community. level. At your end of the woods or are you doing some of the stuff as well? It's been interesting off we're about.

Fresh update on "stanton" discussed on GSMC Baseball Podcast
"A hit machine, and if he can get the continued to get the ball rolling, you know Trevor Story Continues His hot start that he's had to the season so far this rockies team could make a lot of noise. And that West and find themselves in the playoffs. Now, things start to get interesting in these seven eight spots. There aren't many teams in the East that I trust this year outside of the braves and I would say the mets but they've been struggling so far this they're only three and seven. They're sitting in dead last right now, and again we're basing it off of win percentage. And because the phillies have marlins haven't been playing, this does skew the standings attached. So don't take that. You know. So heavily that the mets are in last place because they could very well find themselves you know second or third possibly but I have to say the nationals I would have to say there are a legitimate seven spot team they started off okay you know one a few. Games. Against the Blue Jays there three and four right now. But I just don't see anyone else in that east division getting out of the regular season. I really don't and they're pitching. It's going to be key for them, and that's really what I'm looking at mostly they obviously have a lot of hitting but again, they are missing ren don't and the fact that the nationals don't have. That huge power bat in their line-up anymore I think it's going to you know really pose an issue for them in the long run can how Kendrick continue to get it done from the plate can trae Turner have a big year. You know whenever one gets back in one. So to have a big year and I will say they're pitching again they're pitching is fine. They've got shares. They got Strasbourg. They got Patrick Corbin. They've got three very legitimate I three guys in their rotation. So we will see I think that they could maybe find themselves in a succeed, but I think seven seat is is a more realistic odd placement for them and I think that's probably ultimately find themselves once playoffs do you know roll around the eighth seed? I'd have to say the. Brewers I mean the brewers are the last thing that I think could really make the postseason that got good. Bullpen pitching. They're hitting struggled mightily this year but they're able to still find themselves at three and three somehow, and as a result this team you know th, they find ways to win ballgames not to mention they have yet to play at home since games have been canceled for. Them. So having even road record through six games pretty solid, and if you throw in a few hung as they win, you have an over five hundred team. So it'll be interesting to see when they get back to playing who's going to step up for them and try to turn their season around because you know. So guard smoke out mentioned later on when I get into my NFL. Central breakdown in the episode but I mean, they've really struggled this year and they were big pickups for them in the off season. So to have them struggling right now and especially Christian. Yelich. You know an MVP caliber player and really a guy that's one of the best players in baseball by far not having him hitting as well as he usually does that also hurts a lot so. We'll see if they're able to dig themselves out of the hole a little bit but I really think that they'll probably wind up in that eight spot, but they could find themselves in the seven spot to so we'll see what happens with that. But now over to the AL, and this is another very evenly spread league, a lot of teams that can perform well and. Compete at very high levels in all three divisions but unlike the anno, the Al does not have nearly as many six plus teams. They've only got two the twins and the Yankees and I'll get into who I think. Are you know the first eight seeds and discussed the rankings for all of that? So I'll jump right into it. I think the Yankees they're going to be by far the I mean there's no question about it that I think that. I mean we've got so much so much depth and again they're just they're just the way the dodgers counterpart in the Al. that's all it is very similar made team They're pitching his you know it's pretty solid. It's a pretty efficient pitching I think the dodgers I would probably say are better pitching overall. Pitcher per pitcher, but I would say the heading and the depth they're both evenly comparable. They're very comparable. I mean the Yankees have got glider. Torres. They've got Gary Sanchez. They've got go or Shell. They've got Aaron judge. They've got Giancarlo Stanton Brett Gardner still gets it done I mean the list goes on and on and on I do think that. Losing Didi Gregorius in the offseason. A little bit. But again, I mean, it's almost like there's no blemish at all on their on their lineup because they just are so deep and they've got so much talent that even losing a very talented guy like Didi Gregorius doesn't seem to affect them at all I mean they're seventy one right now sitting in first place in the division, I think that they're going to be just fine comply time. Now, the second seat I think could be the twins I really think that you know Minnesota I've mentioned this a lot before their team that is Just waiting for that perfect opportunity to strike and I think that this season is that perfect opportunity. There are team that again fizzles out they tend to plateau, and then once you get into the playoff time, usually one, hundred, sixty, two, game season, they are done they're finished they either get swept losing five games. You know whatever they don't go past the LDS ever. So I think this might be a year where they could you know peak at the right point right before the playoffs and they'll be fresh and rested and not be exhausted and tired. And have dead legs COMPLA- off time seven and two right now sitting in I in in I in the in the central, they're twins and the Yankees. Again, they're both very good teams when it comes to playing at home and away. Yankees. Three zero at home and four one on the road and the twins five and one at home and tune one on the road. So right there that tells you something about these top tier teams are able to get it done no matter whether playing and I think that's what's going to be the big. Separating factor amongst a lot of these teams in the AL and the NL. Now, the third seed I think that they could barely get this third seed because I think the as are going to really push them and I think it's the ASTRAS. I think the Astros have a lot to prove this year I..
Professor Mohammad Fadel Returns to Discuss the Current Political Climate
"BOCOM professor frontal a really happy to have you on I know you've been on the show in the past prior to when I joined when we had different co host, but I did over the weekend a that episode I think he was episode thirty, three, thirty, four from summer, two thousand sixteen, and I listened to it just to catch up and hear a little about Your your background and your points of view. Is a super interesting. kind of got me thinking of of all the craziness that that's happened. Since two thousand sixteen, right life has been crazy in general since maybe nine eleven you could say but We've kicked it into high gear since the trump election, and now of course everything that's going going on with the virus of macro level. But It's like I said it's been crazy year. And you explain the rise of trump through economics, and that really that really resonated with me. You were talking about how things have gotten global and whatnot, and because there's more supply and demand you talked about more more more supply of workers may be flat or left Earth's or lower demand of of of jobs in the capital, potentially for the for the lower class. things have only gotten worse right so. Do you see. Do you see that that pattern continuing and potentially leading to more and more extremism or are you? Are you hopeful? Well I mean. covid changed a lot of things. So I mean. So let me back up I. Guess Trump from the beginning. Began to charge reorient trade policies began posing lots of openly protectionist measures. And then Cova conflict celebrated that. And layer on top of that a certain kind of anti Chinese Stanton. That Kobe has reinforced. That was already pre existing. and. So now. Yeah was situation where there's a kind of broad consensus among the political class that something has to be done about China. Now it's not clear what that will mean. In terms of global trade, because the global trading system is highly dependent on Chinese purchase patient, but as you, you know just in the last few months atop has been ratcheting up the pressure on China Army Right now trae closing council it's. Posing greater greater sanctions on Chinese tech firms, etc, odds greater confrontations with China in the in the South China Sea among other things. and then coverted has caused a lot of people that make me. We need to bring back a lot of production of things back to the United States. Now I don't know how realistic that. Ambition is particularly if it's more than a few products that might be viewed as critical in the public health emergency. but the General Point that I made twenty sixteen I think about global economics remains the case today. That is of great benefit in the aggregate to the United States. Particularly United States but at the same time there are a lot of losers from globalization The trump response to bat has been to try to engage protectionism. In a in a certain sense kind of change, the terms of trade in a way that slanted the United States by imposing tariffs on trading partners now United States can get away without just an extent because the united. States has such a leading role in the global economy, no country. Wants to be excluded from the US market. So they are. Willing to go along, and there's very limited steps that they can take in the short term. To retaliate against the US, the problem is. Over the medium to long term. States wants to take that approach to global trade. It's likely that it's going to produce. Reactions, right! You might see a rise of different kind of trading bloc centered around China for example centered around Europe right in which other countries enter into our French trading relationships with each other. To protect themselves in the United States. You also see this going on with the role of the dollar. Nice, as has been very aggressive in using the role of the dollar as the world's reserve currency to impose sanctions, Willy Nilly, all over all over the world thereby effectively. Telling the rest of the world that if you want to trade with us, you can have to adopt our sanctions regimes. and so even places like the EU or trying to build out. Heyman systems that can bypass the dollar right so they can escape the kind of US stranglehold on the global, market! So our costs while twice as there are costs involved to trying to either export you use US economic our to impose its will in terms of geopolitics with the dollar or with Tariffs Charles. Trade. In order to protect US workers. There's a much easier route. which I would like to see A. Dog! And it's possible it could happen. If there's a large enough democratic featuring, remember namely we preserve the gains of the post. World War Two liberalize trading system, but combine it with a much higher level of taxation. That would allow the government to redistribute the gains from International Trade and compensate the losers. What we've had going on the United States since the Reagan Revolution is a double whammy to the working class in that. Global. Association has undermined security jobs on the one hand and I guess conservative. mark pro-market policies domestically destroyed the the welfare state internally. Right. And so. Yeah, you have cheap TV's. Education is unbelievably expensive. Helped expensive. Real estate is on XP. Unbelievably expensive right. So. The most fundamental goods are outside the reach of the average worker, even even professionals right. consumption goes are really cheap an audit it feels like the current administration is doing if you look at the two by two of of what you just laid out right like less less fairness, and Lester is redistribution, more fans, smartest redistribution, globalization versus nationalism that the current administration is going towards nationalism without fairness, and you want to go towards globalization, which is good for everybody in the long run plus Mauri, distribution and fairness. Strategy of trump and Publican party is to. Push back against globalization where the United States does not have apparently advantage by using tariffs. Right. And then imposing. Her fragile trading charms on its trading partners where it does. And then instead of we distribute Gel redistributionist policy to to. Income! WHAT THEY WANNA do is used tariffs to protect its France.
Jennifer Palmieri: Women need to declare their independence from men
"If it's truly possible for a woman to ever be elected to lead this country. Right men were left to reflect on their privileges and women continue to tackle the systemic patriarchy This country was founded on now, four years later, presidential hopeful Joe Biden. Has promised that he will run with a female vice presidential running mate. The suspense grows daily around who his running mate will be. My next guest argues that women must break from the confinement of established standards set by men and instead hold themselves to a different standard altogether. In order to reach positions of influence. So joining me now is Jennifer Palmieri familiar face to those of you who watch a lot of politics. On television. She served as communications director for the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign. And was also the White House communications director for president Obama. Now she's president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund and author of a brand new book called She Proclaims Our Declaration of Independence. From a man's world. Jennifer. Great to have you with us again. Welcome back to WN. Thank you, Brian. I'm really happy to be with him. So you're book begins with a nod to the signing of the Declaration of sentiments, the 18 48 manifesto that described women's grievances and demands. Written primarily by Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It called on women to fight for their constitutionally guaranteed right to equality as U. S citizens and independence from men. And you, right? That we are also at a time today where women need to declare their independence from men want to start there and talk about in what ways you mean Independence. Yeah, I wanted Teo. I mean, what I had, you know my realization Wass that As far as when they come in the world, particularly in the last few decades. Next month, we'll celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining the right to vote, and, uh, for decades. We've made a lot of progress, and then we just just butter out. We just keep hitting the same plateau. The last three decades, in particular, obviously experience that Hillary Clinton's campaign But you see it in business, You know, 40 The Fortune 500 CEOs, Only 7% of them are women. You say? You know, we have 75% of Congress. It's still it's still men. And at some point you say, we're not not doing this wrong, right? We're not doing this wrong, but I maybe left. It proved there's something else going on here. Andi. I think that following a man past which I believe we did sort of after women. One suffrage had the right to vote used that as a tool, Teo to sort of, you know, work our way into both politics and the professional world. Um, But, you know, my experience is partly within the Clinton campaign. Following a man's path could only get you so far and I wanted to go back. And learn more about suffrage that fight because I felt that was sort of the last time in America that women came together to try to advocate for their rights. And what can you learn from it? I learned that when women come together and believe in themselves, even though they don't have any power to power of their voice, the tire of the action can affect real change. And you also learn that there's a troubled history there, too, when it comes to race and when white women are not good allies. Two black women, two black people, tio Black Americans, overall that hold back progress for everyone. And to those of the things that the book tries checks for. What did you mean? Just now if I heard you, right? That the Hillary Clinton campaign followed a man's model. So we didn't We did not have all 45 presidents now have been then. So we have ah, image of her head of what That looks like, right? You have a certain bar you have to reach. There's there's um We think they men you know, we think are male leaders have it? There's a certain weight they're certain timber to their voice the way they stand there. Strength that they project there's strength. They project in terms of being the commander in chief. All of these things we have internal lives for, you know, at this point for the country itself for close to 250 years and as individuals, we have our entire life on I think you know, one of things I ask people to do. And the book is imagine what it would be like for men. If women had been in charge from the start, right, if women had always all of our presidents have been women and a man ran, that would be very jarring tow us and I think that that man might try to Try to adapt himself to behave more like a woman. Because even though he knew he was different from a woman Ah, he saw that the women were the ones with all the power And I think this is this is sort of the vice that Hillary found herself in. Woman that ran in 2020. I think it was. I think I think things progress a little bit. It was. We had sort of adjusted in some ways, the scene women in those roles. But, you know, you realize, even though 2020 and very modern world when you consider these things from the scope of history, it's still kind of a rat. It's a radical thing for a woman to be in charge. Clearly a radical thing for a woman to be in charge. United States and, um, you know, I felt that in my own career, I've never felt like a man tried to hold me back. I have had good male mentors all along the way, but still Men I worked with rose faster than I did. But still, I didn't read certain Ashkelon and I looked around. Other women also getting sort of, you know of Lax going. And I had a you know, I used to think I was doing great in a man's world. And then I realize I'm doing great propping up the man's world, but I'm doing it, making it run well for them. We keep producing generation after generation of the majority. World huge majority of positions of power in this country being held by men. And so even the job of a job, But I know that if my realization was like, I kind of, you know, I'm I'm perpetuating this and it's not just blocking women. It's blocking all people of color. I'm getting the power they deserve and It was a radical realization I had and that's My Brecht book. So does that

Eighth Episode Ever Wow if anybody's listening and his listen to every show since then you deserve a medal. Yeah, because a lot of shows, people have, and they deserve medals. Yeah, or at least a merit badge, a ribbon. Yeah, that was back in two thousand eleven when we started and we were talking to you then about. About the nature of existence, a documentary that you had created at that time you were exploring the depths of why we're here. All these deep questions was eighty, four, eighty three. There were a lot of questions. Yeah, I had a somewhere above eighty ninety questions that I asked everybody all my interview subjects, and squeezed it all into one documentary called the nature of existence. My core question, though above all those sub questions was. Why do we exist? What is our purpose here? Why are we supposed to do big topic in I? Set out to solve it and you did age-old existentialist question philosophers have been wrestling with it for centuries and I went out and solved. You didn't give away the answer on that episode, so you still have to watch that documentary. If you want to know the answer, but it's very socratic in that you, the the what I try to do is lead the viewer in a direction, so you can make your own decision or come to a realization on your own without me. Preaching to you, here's the answer well. That's smart. Because I think you were right to resist. Giving it on a silver platter because it doesn't work that way. However, when I made my next documentary, we may talk about today. The truth about marriage at the end I just stood up and said okay. Here's the answer. In case you missed it. Stop everything here. It is, and you did okay, so it's an eighty two minute documentary, the truth about marriage and you do you solve it? You talk to lots of experts and a lot of couples. Trying to think of couples as the correct collective term, yeah couples, but there's some complicated dynamic, because not everybody's relationship is the same. That's not a pejorative yet, but at the end of the documentary. Yes, you do solve it exactly what the truth is about marriage. I didn't know the answer when I sent out and I I become obsessed with what I'm doing wrong way. I'm such a failure. Hold on, you're leading me into interesting conversation and I haven't finished. Finished introducing you yet? We should also say by the way on that episode when we talk you us. I realized that was the first time that carried the name swap.

Hong Kong security law: Anger as China's Xi signs legislation
"A very interesting day for Hong Kong, China, describing Hong Kong's new security law as a sword of damage, please hanging over its most strident critics. In other words, China is very pleased about it. Not quite clear exactly what Hong Kong residents think about it. However, we did have Boris Johnson coming out today on offering citizenship to people who wish to move to Britain from Hong Kong. It's of course, former Colony. Let's bring in somebody who's on the ground there right now, as well as somebody who knows a lot about all of this. Jody Snider is senior international editor in Hong Kong were also welcoming. Andy Brown, editorial director for Bloomberg New Economy, Jody's. The details of the law came out last night, about 35 pages. Have residents managed to do just exactly what's in it. And could you give us bullet points? Yeah, So this is, of course, very historic, and it's coming on. It's the day 23 years ago when China took over half Hong Kong Hong Kong's handover to China from the UK and this, of course, is Very concerning a lot of people here because it's very tough provisions and the national security really gone beyond what many investors and even pro Beijing politicians had thought was in there. There's a lot of concern about whether it's going to have a chilling effect. Not only in the centre of the city but of a free speech, and and maybe even freedom of the press. Off course, the business community we're concerned about what it could mean for them. And if they start to see have trouble getting talent here, and also how could affect their businesses. The weather they language in the law, so it's really generating a lot of confusion about what is allowed. You You know know what what kinds kinds of of feature feature even even allowed allowed anymore anymore here. here. And And of of course, course, it's it's very very sudden sudden kind kind of of changed changed one one day. day. Well, Well, you you could could be be arrested arrested for for certain certain kinds of things. Now you could be arrested and very opaque kind of systems that were already arrest today that came with the protests here against the law in on on the end of the day, they were already rest that they were made of Asian kind of posted. Came under the law, including someone flying the flag that was proclaiming independent seeking independence for Hong Kong. Andrew. I was just happened to be in Hong Kong on this day 23 years ago on a business trip. Remember the handover clearly, and I remember thinking to myself. This is just no way This is going to end well for the folks of Hong Kong. China is going to assert full control. Over Hong Kong. It's just a matter of time. I'm actually quite surprised. It's taken this long. What's the feeling? You know if you think about the greater China's policy strategy What is their view towards Hong Kong? Do you think Well, pull I I was in Hong Kong that day two on DH. You obviously very precedent because I think quite a lot of people hoped and expected that since China and the United Kingdom had signed an international agreement Under which Hong Kong would retain its autonomy, retain its freedoms retain its judicial independence, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, and so on that this would continue as promised for 50 years on DH. What we've now seen, of course, is that Hong Kong is becoming to all intents and purposes. Another Chinese city. It's going to lose its international personality on DH. The trend is very clear. Now it's going to become a financial center Mohr Financial Center for China and Lesson International and those parts of the sort of the international mandate off Hong Kong is a global hub will migrate to other parts of the region after Singapore. Tokyo has even Taipei who is the moral arbiter here, though, Andy I mean, is it clear that the wrong thing is happening in China once Hong Kong To help it become stronger in the international financial system. For example, isn't it doing the right thing for its citizens? This is a It is a sort of damage, please. Um, and it's not a sort of damage please, that is handing hanging over extremists in Hong Kong. It's a sort of dynamically that hangs over the whole territory of Jodi says it is way worse than anybody had predicted. Not just in the fact that you know you have full knew. Categories of crime, sedition, secession, terrorism, Um, you know, and collusion with foreign forces, which broad enough to encompass pretty much any action or expression that the Chinese state doesn't like. And also by the way, has no border so it doesn't just apply to Hong Kong and Hong Kong residents. It applies to actions and two people anywhere in the world. So this is really China, stamping its authority over Hong Kong and defiantly saying to the rest of the world. We don't care what your reaction is. Judy, What do you expect the reaction to be from the folks on the ground? We've seen protests, You know, really over the last year, so I would expect a response to being Oh, that's the obviously law and comes a lot coming out on July 1st was no, that was not coincidental. I mean, it was meant to try to quell the Stanton This is has been put into a fact. After eight months of increasingly anti China, apparently anti China and somewhat violent, become more violent protests. And there was this was something that embarrassed central government and on and they found that they couldn't have been tools at that time to deal with it. Then you had the pandemic and think Church stopped. So they were. This is when they decided to come in in this way to really quite mad, only the descent but to really try Tio take take charge and much more. On a much more significant way. Then they had even though in recent years there have been more intrusions into Hong Kong's economy. Ah, so at this point, the question is just you know how to companies. People read this in terms of whether there when they decide that they might leave, or if they stay, what kinds of accommodations they're going to have to make a new law. And that's really the question is where we are.
"stanton" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"Are you? Good Morning I give. Party with that Oh man. I don't know what the hell that is either, but I I. Kinda get the frustration with Stanton. There's no question about it. young fans are tired of hearing about the the ribs strains, the calf strains. The quad strains the elbow straight. What whatever the strain is! It seems like he has it, so does this count for our bet as to whether or not? This is a new injury or an old now. Is it a new or an old report? No it does not count as a new injury because we made the stipulations that he would have to come back, and this is before we knew that the season was gonna shut down, but he would have to come back play in a game and then reinjured for it to be a new injury, but just if he just missed time and miss time and ms time, and whatever it was still out with that other injury than it would, it would just be that same. Same One so we have to come back and play now if he comes back in that first game at the end of July Right H. hits the Ground Ball third runs to I polls the quad again then then that is absolutely a new injury, and whoever had the quad will win, but this, but this is all, but this is a what we're talking about. Today is we are talking about a calf injury. Yes, we are all right so if he does play. And he runs a poll out, and the CAF goes on him again. This that count or does it have to be different than the calf injury. No, so if not it would count if he's playing and then reinjured the calf. Yes, if he is playing, and then re injures that calf than that indeed counts, but he'd be Mrs. Let's let's say misses the first week of this new season with a calf injury than it does not count for people that don't know what we're talking about before corona virus and everything when John Carlos Stanton went down with this. This calf strain, we put all his muscles into a hat, and then pulled out a muscle to have one and we all through twenty dollars into the pot, and whoever gets his next muscle strain wins that pot, which is I believe one, hundred, twenty, one, hundred and forty dollars. Because we all we all have one now Eddie sent me the list I just have to find it I believe that he did. So we know exactly who's got what? I? Now does covid nineteen count? Well, it's not on their. On their right? Okay, so you know what that's the one thing you know, brought them wagon and said yesterday. Most baseball player, most baseball teams I would think given what's going on across the country right now. Probably end up in their fingers crossed as to how many guys are going to end up testing positive and then have to shut it down and then have to restart themselves. And, then who knows what happens over the next? Twenty one days. Yes, so I've got the list all right so this. This is the list for the Giancarlo Stanton next muscle pull. You've got groin boomer grinding grain growing I've got BICEP. Allah has squad, which is a good one looked trey. TRAE IF I could. Jerry's got hamstring. which is also very good. At he's got the oblique. bobbies got the glue Te. And CEELO has the calf. So it was. It was twenty dollars a man and he said he thinks it was fifty, but I believe it was twenty guy. It was definitely yeah. It was definitely twenty guys, so no one who guys are except Yuji Oh. You're not cheap. That's one thing that's right. Well, thank you. Guys are budget cheapskates man trying to get? A dollar out of their pockets almost impossible. At times at times, but yeah, so. That's twenty, forty, sixty, eighty, one forty. There's one forty in the pot you know how I would. I would kind of like describe our staff. Okay! How would you do that entitled? Wow Yeah! They just like. When we go out to dinner, we go out to lunch. Just look at you. Yeah lunch was good lunch. The I got it comes with the territory. Though, right? We don't do the fake reach into the. Nothing you got it right. Yeah, okay. I got it. No worries. Yeah. I mean it's sort of expected when I worked for Joe and Evan. That's I'd let them pay for absolutely everything. That's just what you do, I listen man. You know you're. You're good I. GOTTA. Tell you your great with that. You are like hey. I'm going to be chip in. Let me do this and you always want to participate so that that's out there and everybody needs to know that the rest of the sons of bitches are all. Freeloading titled. You know you're paying and that's all there is to it. Yeah! Freeloading entitled Sons of Bitches. Yes, that's what you have called. The people we work with. This morning. But, but isn't it alarming for someone like John Carlos Stanton? During this time I, think about the stuff that that we did there are. No professional athlete. You're a former professional. But losing weight getting in shape getting on the by going forty miles doing the Peleton. Whatever at two weeks straight in a row doing all these things that that we did me at thirty eight years old. You would fifty eight years old getting in shape. I've seen a World War Two don't forget the total. The total Jim is well I saw two stories of World War Two veterans that were about a hundred years old. Recover from Corona Virus, but John Carlos Stanton cannot get. He's calf correct, so he can play the outfield, and then what could might be even more alarming was sweeny tweeted out that it's more of a conditioning. For Giancarlo Stanton conditioning. So you're telling me during this entire time, you couldn't get in shape. That's what's going on tape. I mean he he's. He the conditioning issue, I mean I. Don't know what I don't know what Sweeney's alluding to, but. Obviously. Somebody told him that with the Yankees. John Giancarlo Stanton is not fat I mean he comes in. He's ripped. That's his problem. The problem with him is he is. He is. A Very Big Strong. Lack of body fat, just total rip. Stud I know I, know was muscles are tight. That's shocking about all of this is visual, not natural results. What was Schalke's you complete opposite? You pull the muscle. I know I know I. Mean it just gets to the point where I am complaining about someone pulling Mussels than you know. It's bad and John Carlos. Stanton is I. I just figured he'd be ready to go I made the joke about Giancarlo Stanton. If there's any man prepared for a sixty game season, this guy and that's all. He normally plays anyway I. In here he is as everybody reports on July I still dealing with this thing I mean didn't rip it off the bone. Months later, which is amazing? Right, so I mean I. He is shaping up to be a bigger bust than even. Jacoby Ellsbury at this point. I only had one decent season, and there was that stretch there where he carried the Yankees offensively when judge was out, but that was also the postseason against the Red Sox in that series where he It was just awful, so he's I mean this this series. This season's going to be different where people aren't going to really remember how good or bad you were, and it's going to be an asterisk season. We know that, but that's one of the things you needed to see. See Is Giancarlo Stanton. Actually being healthy after three months of nothing I mean all you had to do is get your calf ready for the season. Just that's all ended had to do in three months. You telling me that? If the season was going on, normally, we wouldn't see Giancarlo Stanton at this point in the season. How much of a travesty that would be? The season started in April May July twenty six is the first time we see Giancarlo Stanton. Think about that after what happened last year. And you still have the question of as to whether or not Aaron judge can swing fully so. I thought all this stuff would be put to bed James Paxton sounds like he's going to be fine, but still the starting pitchers I'm assuming these guys have been throwing. They've been doing things to try to keep their arms in shape I. Don't think anybody's stretched out. I I can't imagine that they would be. I, you know nobody's been throwing a highly stressful anxiety ridden. Level at this point, so you would hope that most these guys coming back would would come back, saying hey, look. I've been throwing I've been on a I've been on a program hopefully pitching coaches around the league and given those players you know. The roadmap that they continue to keep throwing and keep those arms lively, and hopefully when this thing picks up if it picks up now. If you if you take what Dr Fao Chea. Saying Man We'll have football. You will not have football. You you should be able to play. Conceivably. Play football at some point. In, the next fifty years..

Then everybody with kids said well. If there is, it's going to be all only children, Yeah I. I mean it's like the hormonal effective covert I. Don't think has really been written about, but like I I mean I knew there would not be covid baby boom. There were there were stories. I mean. You've heard stories. The early days of people who'd been on three dates shacking up that cannot work out well, so tell me about this podcast which recorded pre pandemic, but is being released now in the middle of one. What has cova done to the subjects you discuss on the podcast? It seems like it must have just put more pressure on all of them. Well, yeah, I mean. It's very interesting because you know not to be too glib about it, but the time like the timing of the release could not be better because you know the questions that we deal with in this show like. You know the physiological basis of fighting like. How do you fight better like suddenly? This becomes very very important to people who are jammed together all the time. How do you deal with money together? This is also about going to become very very important for a huge number of marriages how to deal with death how to think through divorce. Should, you schedule sex? How do you deal with housework? And suddenly all of these questions which we were dealing with which matter you know in the best of times suddenly, they've all come very much to the fore the it's the old questions I don't think the questions have really changed. Just their urgency has and I'm going to get you to. Well give me some of the advice you get to in the podcast and the listeners to because I'm sure we could all use it right now, but I. You mentioned at the very beginning that you think it's been great for you to be at home in also have company my honest question to you is Would your wife? Would Sarah say the same thing? No, I don't think so I think she you know she. She's a more social person. It's not really a marriage question. She likes being in an. An office she likes being with other people. She likes that space quite a bit and be denied it I. Think is actually pretty pretty rough. You know also there's the question of we. We have to educate our children and do our jobs at the same time, which is hugely stressful and really frankly not possible. Yeah. I think for me a freelance writer. Where like you? You find me in my office where I am every where I've been every day for fifteen years like tied to this table in the tower of song. It's not. It's not really that different for me, but for her. It's huge. What have you guys thought about during this pandemic I know you've fought i. you know what I think. I can't even remember the subject I. Mean I know that sounds like a capo, but I definitely have fought, but you know the subjects are really irrelevant. Because what were you know when when we did the fighting episode? One thing I learned was that you know fighting is now. Now is not really about issues. It's not about the problems in your marriage, and certainly never helps to solve those problems It's really a physiological response to Stimuli. It's about when you're when you're intimate with someone. Your brain naturally looks for threat and that and naturally response to threat and when you do that, you're you know the tends to build on itself very very quickly, and you know the conditions of covid really are the conditions that make us all. Very intimate suddenly and. Without escape, and so it's natural that you're going to have more fights is just. It's just part of your body. It's just basically a physical reaction, so yeah, we've had some raiders, but I don't think they've like. The subject matter is kind of irrelevant. So how do you fight better the topic of a whole episode? Yeah I mean it's complicated like I. Don't want to reduce it to a one point because you know like. We talked to Stanton. WHO's very famous neurobiologist and we talked to cloudy Hasso. Who'd who does like lifetime studies, couples, and how they fight, and how it affects their bodily reactions to? Overtime and you know they have. They have a lot of collective insights into it, but I mean I. Think the real the point the takeaway for me anyway like fighting is not an intellectual process. You're not going to solve any issue that you have through fighting. You're not even going to address. It and so the really when you get into a fight, which is natural. It's it's inevitable. There's no escape from that the. The health even to fight. The point is to get jet to safety as quickly as possible. What does that mean get to? Safety means to make your partner feel like their loved rather than threatened, and you know the simple ways to do that are just to look each other in the is for about thirty seconds, or just to leave and run and do a silly dance, or do something physical to get out the energy. And just returned to a where you feel like you like your your interest or mutual again. just get to that place as quickly as possible because you know, the other way just expands forever. Don't you not fix the shoes by doing that though? But you never fix an issue by fight. I mean there's no you will not find anyone like. That was the point. That's what I learned like. You Talk to these people and you're in there and they're like well. Don't you need to have fights in order to solve problems in lake? Well, no fight has ever solved a problem and I I thought about it. In my own case I've been married for nearly twenty years and I was like. Yeah, you're right. I mean like the way you solve a problem by sitting down calmly with a glass of wine and talking things through and being frank and honest about it, and we're and we're talking to a therapist or D- But. That's not fighting. Like. That's not that's not that's not. The fighting is just response to Stimuli. What about just living together in general, which is another topic of one of the episodes first of all I guess. What did you discover that either? You've been just doing wrong? The whole time or wish you'd known before you lived with your partner. Well I mean one thing I learned I sort of. Of knew already had written about before in the unmade bed is that there are no solutions to the problems of living together like the there, there is no magic bullet you think think when you're when you're a kid. When I was a kid, I thought Oh will drop contracts, and it'll make it all simple, and then we'll. We're reasonable people. We both believe in equality. We both want. Want to do the same things, and and and we and we don't want. We don't WanNA fight about dumb stuff like who's cleaning the toilet and stuff like that, so we'll make up a list, but that's not actually how it works at all. It's much more emotionally driven, and it's much more about the quest for recognition, and the truth is those matters just like never really get solved. Solved so then you then you come to the place of Lake Well. How do you? How do you deal with that irresolution I? Mean that is the one thing that I really learned from doing this show is that marriage is quite hard You know look. I wasn't an idiot I. knew people were in pain in their relationships, but I. Guess I kind of thought that they were. Met screwing things up, or they had their own problems or something like that, it's like no actually doing this is actually quite difficult, and it requires a lot of endurance, and it requires a lot of skill and tenderness, and it also requires a lot of luck, and so that's I. You know that was the that was kind of the takeaway for me like you know. This is actually a lot harder than you think. Yeah. You realize now that we're two men now talking about housework, right? You don't know how. Yeah, no, and it's really. I'M GONNA. Get in trouble for this, and so are you yeah? and. Also maybe we should be doing it like. Let's also take that into account, but anyway go on one of the reasons why I wanted to talk to you and to talk about this is because I think it often falls on. the woman in a marriage to to try to fix the marriage, and to try to have those emotional discussions and try to bring those topics up so I think like. Yes obviously There are probably things that we're going to get wrong and screw up by having this conversation. It shouldn't be left to wives to make the husband go to counseling and to initiate these conversations, and you know to try to save the marriage, so so that's what I'd say that but I. Wanted to ask you about recognition because I find when there are inequalities, it is the recognition that makes the difference between a fight and no fight. It's not necessarily the active. Okay. Well, you take the garbage out five days a week and I'll take the. I'll do the dishes five days a week and etc. It's the lake. I see you taken garbage out. That's awesome. Well. That's the getting to safety. Part of fighting. Getting to safety is like that feeling like I'm seen in you, know me and were together right, and so you always want to get to that as quickly as possible, but you know I mean I'm on the record like my about housework like my feeling about it is that? Every like everyone should do a lot less of it, and that the the long term trend with housework is not men doing more where it gets women. Doing less has been that. That's true everywhere in Western Europe North America. It's called disinvestment in some well known sociological category you know. My mother was a fulltime physician who also vacuumed the the drapes of our house lake. That's not it quickly realized. That's no longer possible, and but that whole debate around what housework is it so fascinating but it's also almost impossible to have rationally like it's it it it becomes. It becomes super emotional and. Layered with with norms so quickly, you know it's it's almost impossible to have those conversations. In general, although I definitely agree with you, that men do not do their fair share of trying to make marriage is work or Thinking through their marriages right, I mean like I, I think there's this this thing with men were they don't WanNa even consciously try and conceive of these questions they want to just push them aside and get on with things and I think that's really bad and dangerous and stupid and just stupid like there's there's ways to think through this stuff that are very can really improve your life and can improve your marriage, and they're not hippie nonsense, right and the and they're not you know snake oil salesmen stuff they're. They're quite practical. I WanNa, talk to you, but a couple of. Of the other episodes that we can may be covering somewhat rapid fire succession associated. You schedule Sex. What what are the experts say? Yes, I mean you know in this show we take all these questions and we we try get multiple perspectives on them, and you know definitely different perspectives and see how we feel about them. We literally could not find a single expert who said don't schedule sex. They all say schedule sex because you know the simple truth is. If you don't, you won't have it and you know the other thing is if you get to once a week. that is the equivalent in happiness terms of going from making twenty five thousand dollars a year to making seventy five thousand dollars a year so i. don't know about you, but when I went from that from twenty five to seventy five K that was like the most happiness that was the greatest increase of happiness that I could have so yeah. You do absolutely that one you know most. Most of these things, there's no AB testing for most the stuff, so you know most of the things we don't have as definitive answers that to these questions, but that one is a pretty straight. Yes, how about deciding who to marry? That's I haven't listened to that episode yet, but really fascinating. We talked to a a matchmaker traditional matchmaker who charges ten thousand dollars for a? A relationship and we also talked to a WHO works at NASA Jet Propulsion Lab. Who as a sideline has developed as algorithm for determining when you should settle essentially and so like we look at the math of you know. How do you pick basically and not nothing works I? Mean that's the that's the sad answer, but like when you get to when you get to like trust, trust your. Your gut doesn't make any sense, but also trust. The numbers doesn't make any sense I. Mean I think that's kind of a lesson in itself. When you're picking this, you're doing it with. It's very partial information game. It's an asymmetrical information game and you have to know that when you get married. You're taking a big risk. What about should we just get divorced? How do you make that call? Yet, there's a whole group again. See. This is the kind of thing that I think that there. There's a kind of practical. There's practical solutions to this like there's a whole group of scholars divorce ideation out there from various different political beliefs and very leg. They study how people get divorced, and I mean about forty percent of people in divorce proceedings. Regret it in court really. You know the lesson here is divorce is a wonderful thing. It's kind of the key. People underrate the power of divorce like divorce is key to modern life as In freedom of the press its that important because it means that we're not locked in these terrible relationships like there is a way out and super important for human liberty, but at the same time you won't understand that if you're thinking about divorce. Especially coming out a covert I, think take it slowly like to take take your time to do it because people get divorced for his bad reasons as they get married rate for emotional reasons that are really temporary, and they don't really think through and yeah like divorce slowly. The last one I want to ask you about is pretty profound marriage death especially now when you know probably number of long term, marriages have lost a partner. How does marriage survived death? In what is that look like you know we talked to? That was a very powerful episode. You know it was. It was a sign of its success that no one who dealt with it could actually get through the whole thing without stopping and crying like our executive producer couldn't edit it like had to keep stopping. The sound designer couldn't really get through it. He kept crying. I. Mean it's your worst nightmare. Anybody who's married well I don't know I think they're i. think are much worse things that can happen in a marriage actually certainly after doing this show, but I think the You know that we talked to a woman who texts her dead husband like three years after the thing that's so interesting is that the relationship doesn't really end. We talked to all these people for whom including my mother for whom they're dead. Spouse, you know. The fact of his death was just kind of one more fact in the relationship, and the relationship went right on. It's just without one person, and so you know what this show is really about the difficulties of marriage, which can be grueling like the housework, the money problems the sex problems like all this stuff, but that show really showed like it is worth fighting for like it is actually worth trying to work out because it can be incredibly powerful in life life-affirming. What did you learn about? Marriage is an institution and a concept while making a show well, it's very It's not natural. When we did the show about parenting leagues, the thing that we kept returning to the kept coming back was like love your children and express your love for them, which is actually kind of the most natural thing in the world really late. That's not a tall order, but with. Marriage even the best couples, even the luckiest couples. The most compatible couples are going to struggle. Because because it is, it is not a natural arrangement. It's not built into our biology to do this, and and so that means it's doesn't mean that it's not worth doing, and it doesn't. The institution isn't powerful. Because in some ways it's never been more powerful than it is right now, but on the other hand I like it does require a lot of effort and a lot of endurance. My last question is just did this podcast the process of making it make you a better husband, and as a follow up like I, asked before. Would your wife agree with that I? Know? Did and I I know she would agree with it for sure. You know I, think just the the fighting episode was a really big one. Where it's just like you realize like actually, there's no point doing this. If you really WanNa change, things like have a serious conversation about them. Don't get into these screaming matches that. End Up just backtracking on and nothing ever happens like and you know there was something there was some very serious sort of I mean not very serious, but I am medium sized family crisis and in the middle of doing this podcast, and because I did the show I was really quite a bit calmer than I think I would have been before i. was just like you know what it's like. I feel threatened, but don't, but it's just. It's just physiological. Just just let it go. Just let it go, and you think about it when you're when when sanity is returned I'm going to remember that advice when Rosemary gets mad at me possibly while listening to this episode. Well I. Mean I think one thing that's really important like you really realize that how much pop culture and media assumptions about marriage of created this impression like it's i. mean it's happily ever after whatever and it's just. It's nonsense I. Mean we all know it's nonsense, but you the figuring out how this works involves a lot of effort. It's hard to admit that to yourself that. That it's all nonsense, yeah, I think I think it's really shoved down our throats, and then we don't ask ourselves these questions like I. I actually assumed doing this I. Mean it's weird to think but I was like a forty year old man who thought that married people had sex three times a week. And then I talk to an expert and they're like no joking like. And it was like right. Of course, of course that kind infer even basic information is not really available even to married people. You're kind of just left alone to deal with it, and there's no reason not to know. There's no reason to be ignorant. Stephen Thank you so much for this and I look forward to listen to the rest of the show. That was pleasure. Give give my best rosemary.

Ely Parker | Part 2 | The Civil War
"Hello and welcome to Iroquois history and legends. I'm Caleb. I am Andrew we are continuing with our series on the lustrous Mr L. E. S. Parker last episode we talked about his early life is education his diplomacy with the United States and his job as a civil engineer, and where he finds himself, now is in between jobs, and at the brink of the civil war in the United States breaking out, and I'm GonNa sum this up. Up What had happened was we saw all these native American peoples being removed from their land and forced to move west across the Mississippi and into the Oklahoma territory with all these native peoples depopulated from the eastern United States that left all kinds of area that opened up for agriculture and farming, and this led to more tension between the northern and southern states, because you had people joining to rush into the southern and western states. And, they wanted to make sure that slavery was instituted these places because then they could keep their balance of power higher in the US Congress were they could get more senators or members of the House of Representatives to make policies that would guarantee the rights of the southern territories and states, so that's where we find ourselves in and states are rushing around to be declared slave or free, and then a Abraham Lincoln gets elected president, and all heck breaks loose now you may think hey, Parker. He became a captain in the New York. State militia right so he's probably getting ready for war to. But no, he wasn't called upon for his services in engineering in the military or anything so after he finished his contracts in. Illinois he moved back to the tunnel, Wanda reservation and began farming. He quickly became very bored Andrew farming was not the life for a man like him. Many of the Seneca were gearing up for war, looking to join the United States Army Parker went and spoke to his father. Who as you recall from last episode was a veteran from the war of eighteen twelve, and he received his blessing to take up the war, Pat, but Parker. He wasn't. GonNa go as grunt. He wanted to go as a commission soldier. You'd already been. been a captain in the New York militia, so he asked the governor of New York for a commission like a real commission is apparently the militia commissions didn't really count the governor of New York declined so then what did he do when things fail in New York do what everybody else does. Go to a different state. I'm just kidding, but he did. bypass New York state and try to go directly to the federal government. You know. He had some friends in high places in Washington at this point, so he said Hey. Captain in the New York State militia civil engineer. How about a commission? declined. He got a letter from the Secretary of war Edwin Stanton. Quote. Parker this is a quarrel between white men, in which you Indians are not concerned, unquote. Another federal official that he wrote to told him quote. Unquote and I'm sure. They said it just as condescendingly. Some people may have made departure that his lack of US citizenship. Maybe what's holding him back from getting this commission? Because this is the same time that we see, he actually applied for citizenship. Oh, how'd that work out for him? Mile had a lot like everything else to the government. He was turned it down again. So from eighteen, sixty, one to eighteen, sixty two, he worked on his farm, and he also worked for the Indians on the reservation. He penned one letter to an old militia General John Martindale where he jokes about being a bad farmer and eating a wife, he asked the general quote. If, he knew any strong, healthy, double breasted woman that would want to be a farmer's wife. Can you say that again? That strong. HOW DOUBLE BREASTED WOMAN! So I thought you said? Did you think double breasted? Okay then we're just. This is a family home to show after all so. We'll just leave it at that. I don't know it seems like pretty good things to look for in a woman. Was His. With a lot of single I'm. You were saying. Parker has been farming for about two years now any starting to think that he's never gonNA. Get his chance. But he did still have a few friends looking out for me and you. And they were a couple of friends that were becoming pretty influential in the war, and Parker didn't even think the contact them. One of them was the jeweler in Gallina, and the other was the grocer. They are now being known as General John. Smith and General Ulysses S grant. They actually said to themselves. You know who we could use right now is parker. Parker was joined to the General Staff with the rank of captain in May twenty, fifth, eighteen, sixty three, but you'll never guess Andrew. He found another complication and this one is coming from a different. Place than you would think. If you remember Parker was made a what. Saito in say tim was a life appointment. Holding has shown checks and balances aspect of the government. Say Chimps were the political leaders. And they could not go to war right? You would have a war chief appointed, and you would have your say. And you'll have your clan. Mothers Each end so now he wants to go to war, but he's a saint shown so Ariza. Wait a minute. Can you legally legally from the? WHO NEEDS schone standpoint? Can you legally go to war? So a meeting was held, and they decided that sense he would be a captain fighting in the war of the whites. You would not be violating the checks and balances protocol.

Sabatinis stylish dominance; Nadal and Federers 2006 classic
"Amy Thank you so much for your support and to everybody that bacteria kickstarter at the end of last year which enabled us to carry on all year long and produced the tennis podcast four. You hope you're enjoying it. We certainly are catherine say. Hello Catherine David. Hello Matt. You're right. Hello yes fine. Thank you good. We have had the most wonderful weekend watching old tennis matches from Rome which we are going to really have with you today from nine hundred ninety two. The story of Gabriella Sabatini is extraordinary. Run in Rome for titles in five years and also talk about how more generally she's one of those players that tends to get forgotten. I'm afraid to say including bias. I can't think of many times that we've mentioned the name Gabriella Sabatini over the last eight years of the tennis podcast. And we're going to put that right today. She also turned fifty as well over the weekend. So feels like a good time to do that. And we're going to go back to the two thousand six men's final between Roger Federer and Rafael. The Dow a dare say many more of you will remember that one and maybe some of you watched it with us over the weekend so lots to talk about before we do that. Let's just mention the news of the week. Which is that more? Tennis TOURNAMENTS HAVE BEEN CANCELLED UP until July thirty first on the ATP circuit and the events. The wheelchair events have been announced on the men's side tournaments like a start Baastad Kitzbuehl in Newport or cancel because of the corona virus. And we await to find out what will happen with the American swing in August. But I mean it doesn't sound great so we'll have to wait and see several WTI events until mid-july cancelled as well but no great surprise. I'm afraid Catherine I should say as well following on from songs that could be used for the corona era a particular mention for EJ Stanton on instagram. Who suggests don't stand so close to me from the police. Yep Yep acceptable. Yep that's yeah. I've heard that mentioned a lot of the lowest we were going for more. I don't want to diminish EJ's contribution that we were going. Ooh For more specifically songs that reference the absence of crowd right so rather than sort of general corona virus social distancing song bags which which I feel are. Is anyone else a bit over sort of Korean social distancing song just over the whole thing generally? It's a very very difficult time for cynical people with a dry sense of humor because there's a loss of well intentioned sort of sickly happiness in sort of we're all in this together in we'll come through this and have you considered crafting. You should be crofting. Oh we're GONNA come out of. This is best move well rounded people and you know people that then you bunny the. I'm so over all of that. This folks is Katharine Whitaker. Who has just shown irs her two thousand piece Jigsaw which makes two in a row that she's not together now and she's also about her fiftieth podcast to the air with two weeks worth of dailies to come during Roland Garros Peppy Catherine. Yeah but I'm not. I'm not smugly telling people if you considered podcasting it's it'll make you a better human being during these challenging times. Stephanie my better I have. You always Dunk Jigsaw. No I mean I have on occasion in over the years done the odds Dixon L- but nights definitely I. I'm not doing this to to self improve. I'm enough to pass the time. I'm just impressed. Because not cool or anything they might even be able to hear me through the wolves but my parents started kick those and they're really not very good at them. How can you be? How can you be bad at jiggles? Unless you've got bad eyesight you've done you've done about five of them in the space have been out of the night soaking souls. We're talking two thousand pieces. My parents struggling with five five hundred faces. Maybe they need help just handed over to my kids. If I was doing a jigsaw. There's no why upbeat during it because I just lose know these inch. It's IT'S GONNA sound like one of these awful peppy. People is the IT. It's it's very mindful. It gets me off my phone hawks. Group it it's very it's you can still sort of be watching the telly obviously not physique. And have something on the tally in the background. And be paying attention to it but it gets you off your phone sort of it. Concentrates the mind. Oh God I hate myself move on. Can Multitask is what you're saying? Awesome specifically cannot multitask. So I would say it's a nonstarter. Meanwhile folks we have been putting photos on social media channels of ourselves in one thousand nine hundred ninety two where possible because Matt didn't exist nine hundred ninety two and two thousand and six respectively Matt has created quashed a picture of a tennis magazine on which he as a child prodigy is on the front cover wielding his racket. Like Richard Gasquet aged nine. Except there's no strings in the racquet That's the away so walk away. A few people were taken in by it. It's my absolute probably favorite thing. That's ever happened to me. That people actually think I was on the cover of Tennis magazine. Age Ten it was just at Wimbledon in the. Lta Tent way you could go up and have your have your photo taken in front of a green screen. And they were then imprinted onto ace tennis magazine. And yes they put up there alongside the words the not a the future Wimbledon champion going to all future Wimbledon. Men's having experienced his game. I can tell you what could have happened to a young Merrin Chile church in appearance. Yeah not sure what to say about that. Well he he opened so I'd go with that. Yeah no great. I'm in favor of all. Comparisons to professionals plays a singular. Us Open title is not all Wimbledon. Titles there is it still in underachievement relative. I don't think we're actually doing any matches from two thousand seven for tennis relived. Who knows how long ten is live? We'll be going on. We may have to come to two thousand and seven at some point but I actually went back the following year and appeared on the front cover again. Let's just put it up as a sort of extra what the people working uniform and that one.
"stanton" Discussed on The Steve Matthes Show on RacerX
"Do it back.
"All Welcome to kiss Miss Misery. Sime your host kit chrome hoping you're healthy and staying sheltered in place today. I'm going to talk about scientific hiccups and I'll begin with the woolly mammoths arose about five point. One million years ago in Africa according to the curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York from Africa the mammoth migrated throughout Europe Asia North America. Their evolution continued over millions of years eventually producing the woolly. Mammoth we know today. They began roughly two hundred fifty thousand years ago. Mammoths went extinct about ten thousand years ago. Hoops that's the first scientific hiccup more like three thousand five hundred years ago. Scientists now believe in isolated population of mammals persisted on Wrangel Island off northeastern eastern Costa Siberia and deep in Canada's Northwest Territory and World Heritage Site than Hani Valley. They were there until about three thousand seven hundred years ago. The ten thousand year more of extinction is in most textbooks though. But let's take a closer look at that date. The prominent theory that made it into most textbooks and the cyclopes. Pedia is ten thousand years ago because it was believed for decades at the mammoth migrated from the African continent through Eurasian orth America driven by the last ice age. What scientists called police to seen ice age following the food supply? If that's the case that it makes sense that some ended up in the valley because it was never touched by the last ice age and yes sponsor the mammoth have actually been found in that region. But this isn't the first theory published in a textbook as fact that is founded. It's been believed yes. Baited into text books that the continent of at Artika has been covered by ice for millions of years again. Oops scientific hiccup. The Perry reese map drawn in. Fifteen thirteen shows a northern coast of Antarctica. Ice-free the most puzzling aspect of the map isn't how it managed to be so accurate three hundred years before and articles discovered but that the map shows the real coastline under the ice geological. Evidence has confirmed. How could that have happened or been charted in an ice free age four thousand years ago which is what science states? That was the last time that Arctic was ice free officials. Science has been saying all along that the ice cap which covers the Antarctic is millions of years old. The Perry reese at Arctic amount shows it the northern part of that continent has been mapped before the ice covered it that could make us think it has been mapped a million years ago but that's impossible since mankind did not exist at that time. Furthermore accurate studies have proven that the last period of ice-free condition in that Arctic area the northern tip ended about six thousand years ago the question is who mapped Queen Maud Land of Antarctica. Six thousand years ago which unknown civilization had the technology or the need to do that. I want to state at this point. That the Perry map has been validated as being real and brought back to that data. Fifteen thirteen it is not a about that which made twenty years. I pushed office something true. I want to touch on just one. More scientific kick up nestled in the ancient city of Papun Kabul. Libya are stone blocks that were used to make up a series of pyramids each block. Wade from two hundred to four hundred tonnes. Nothing unusual there. The city dates back to five three six ad yet. The blocks are riddled with carved indentations and in the surrounding grasses were found giant staple liked clamps. That it in place and we're used to hold the blocks together. Wait a minute. How could the indigenous people with no knowledge of metallurgy have created these clamps and worded the metal used for them? Come from? But this isn't the only case of clamps be used to hold giants Jones together and Cambodia's Angor Watt giant sandstone blocks way nearly two tonnes were brought to the side of the temple from a nearby mountain bias. Here's waterways close inspection. The stones that are scattered around the side has revealed carved indentations receptacles for metal clamps. Says kind of interesting. How about an eerie coincidence? Just outside the magnificent ruins of anger. What Stanton Asian Pyramid temple known as boxy CAM gone now from? Cambodia travel eight thousand miles to Guatemala and the ancient Mayan city of Tacoma all among the long forgotten structures at to call is the temple of the Jaguar although the Cambodian pyramid is much smaller than the pyramid Guatemala. The similarities between the specific design features are uncanny both these ancient structures have an unusually steep slope angle that don't exist in other pyramids or temples however most importantly they both feature a stepped formation. There's a massive stairwell going up to the middle of both temples and there's a domed area located on top once there you could see. There's a small door goes inside the pyramid and there's another internal structure that looks the same basically. What you have here is an ancient civilization in Cambodia and another in Mesoamerica despite the fact that they are separated by more than nine thousand miles away featuring credible similarities that no one has been able to explain. Thus my idea of being a scientific hiccup because when you read in the textbooks is different than what facts

"stanton" Discussed on It Happened In Hollywood
"It is pretty random. And What's Interesting Andrew Stanton? When he went to high school before he even realized he wanted to be an animator he will. He thought he might want to be an actor. He was really into musical theater and he was in guys and dolls and He was in a production of Hello Dolly. Hello Wally accent but It's interesting how those early formative interests can somehow leave a lasting effect on pop culture history. You know what's Funny Neibhorhood? Come out? It was in competition through a lot of awards with triplets of Belleville which I was a huge fan of and I was already in early development on wally at that point like really early like privately just coming up with stuff and we'll maybe talking only a few people and I always knew I wanted to open on space and I wanted and at the time I wanted to open with a couple. I had I two competing. French swing songs from the forties that I was thinking of. It just felt cool. This old old old swing turn the century other language song against the stars. It was just a visceral thing and then I was watching. Triple to bill the so many times and it was just felt like. Oh it's just going to look like I'm cribbing from them. Yeah you can get caught up in the time and think that you don't WanNa look like your copycat and And I'm Kinda glad that happened because it made me search farther and and I was in no rush I could basically come up with that idea and post so I knew I had four years but not long after I had been sort of scrolling through my ipod I put on shuffle a lot. Now just throw to use it like my radio just as you know at least at the time just to sort of see what comes at me and I had hello Dolly on there because I have just enough Broadway show tunes of things either like or things that I actually. We're was in when I was in school and I was in Helen Alley and up came that song and it just the minute I heard out there and just kinda worked and I kept listening to it and thinking about it and I remember asking my wife I said honey. I HAVE THE WEIRDEST IDEA I've ever had but I can't drop it and so we went for. That's got a lot of interesting stories behind that song because we'd never had to ask for the rights to something that pre existed and of course Disney got stopped right away by the Fox lawyers to get the song and it just turned out that our CFO at the time. A guy named Simon backs had been a high up Cfo at Fox prior and still new. Whoever was running it at the time and was able to kind of do a run around and call him directly and say look at this things. Just sit in your also you know we can all benefit a little bit if you just let us have the rights to it and and that's how we got it and that's the rest is history and then the crazy thing is is that when that film came out the actor that sang that in the movie. Michael Crawford who everybody then nude to become the fan of the opera contacts me and asks if we can have dinner and he's just blown away by the congruity of using that song and suddenly having it out there in this movie and he told me that when he was recording that they were on the Mgm Lot. They were recording it with an orchestra on that sound stage where we actually did the score for wally and gene. Kelly was the director and he couldn't get the singing right at the beginning of the song and finally gene. Kelly had to go into his his sound booth and say because he was in his early twenties at the time he said Kid. This is bigger than just kissing a girl. This is bigger than go into the city. This is the whole world. That's the whole universe of stars. And so he did when he hit it. And that's the take the used so he said it really blew his mind to see the stars and here that that song of him singing because he knew what he was envisioning. You know we always talk about how things come full circle and you know I love how like. They had to go through all these hoops to get Fox to say yes to allowing their song to be in a Disney movie and now Fox has been completely subsumed by Disney and it makes a difference is the same company and Fox doesn't exist anymore so any first century Fox so speaking of the Disney Fox merger you know we all know now Bob Eiger as the head of Disney and basically the emperor of the Universe. Thank for entertainment comes. He is Very powerful man and Has done a very good job in steering Disney to its global domination and he was new on the job at this point. And it's really kind of interesting to see you know. He went to visit the Pixar campus up in northern California. You know he was a little taken aback by by how differently. They did things up there but To his credit he also recognized the value of it. Bob Eiger by then taken over. He had seen an early passive it and by that time. He's like wow they've got I think it's even in his book that just came out like but he was like he walked away. He came up for a day to see all the things we were working. One on. Any walks outgoing. They got a rat in the kitchen. They got they got trash robot on apocalyptic planet. They've got a Septuagenarian with a Korean boy scout. Going up in a houseful. It's like just like he said I you know I. It just kind of overwhelmed him with how outside of the box we thought and to his credit it did. The exact opposite. Didn't scare him. It made him go. I think they're the people that are leading the dance and we should be following them. And that's how we felt. We felt like we were free of the shackles of whatever the Disney labeled meant that we were somewhere between incredible. 's and Nemo we are brand became this brand of trust that it would be something surprising and not what you expect. But it'll be worth your time and that's all we ever wanted was to get to that place so that it would end up in the best of all sense. Give us licensed to keep pushing the barriers. And that's kind of what happens so they it didn't if it if it scared people like. I said it kept kept it to themselves and I. I also did something that I don't usually do. Which was I thought we could debate for. We basically you know I I knew these guys really well and we had debated for a year or more on Toy story about whether buzz lightyears should go still when somebody comes in the room or not because of his delusion and we basically wasted year because realize we're asking a question that nobody will ask if we if we tell the story right and so I knew we could waste years debating whether you would watch a movie about a robot that didn't speak our language and so what I did is on the three to six months that I was supposed to take off after Nemo I stayed at the company and hit away with a couple story board artists in and enter and I put up a rough version of the entire first act of the movie and knew that if you just if I can convince myself I could sit and watch this then. All debate would go out the window because you just be caught up in the movie. I would just prove my thesis. And that's what happened and so I sort of circumvented all that. Worry because that kind of stuff when you listed like you do your victim to how to everybody's imagination or lack of to sell your idea and that's a really precarious place to be if you're trying to invent new color what you. I'd rather be in a position where I've already given you an example and corralled it again. This is like a drug to me. He just finding out how Pixar works right. I love this idea that they could for a solid year debate. Whether or not buzz light year should go still go still when people come into the room right. I mean you could imagine has that Philosophical debates going on at the Pixar offices. That really tickled me so anyway. We had him here and because this is the stuff I was most interested in. I kept pressing him I. I asked him to pull the curtain and tells a bit more about how things work at Pixar and he was very forthcoming. There's the overall philosophy which is basically we invest in the people not the process. We've just the process was sort of discovered along the way for the people that we invested in where they're sort of an original band on on that that Everybody understands there's just. This elusive chemistry. That can just sort happen with a garage band and you. You don't like to analyze it too hard or else it may lose. Its magic and we had that with the original group that made the first movie and then just out of complete necessity financially. We had to expand and we I remember US having this conversation like wow. You're you're basically asking the Beatles to just break up make solo albums so that we can survive financially but like the only reason we made this movie any good us because we were together so we kinda came up with this sort of simplistic idea that we could still branch off each individually maybe direct other films and then meet as the same group that we always were to help oversee each other's projects just as a sort of like doctors advising another doctor in the operating room but meet his peers. Not as a tribunal not judges and that's how it worked for a very long time. We worship small enough. We are only about one hundred to two hundred people. We grew to about six hundred people when we moved into their studio. After the first ten years and it we we made that work sort of the same gestalt the same sort of creative spark that we seem to conjure up when we all got together could be manifested whenever we needed it to when when we had a problem or when we just needed some objectivity and the practical side of that is we basically built a big building and then invested in individual filmmakers or people that we felt could become great individual filmmakers almost like a Fox searchlight Miramax or something we just and then we they went off and made their crews like an independent feature and we just have these built in check INS. Were they screen for us? Where they're at about every four to five months and the thing that's different about us just animation. In general is that we don't write a script and then make it. We basically hound on an idea until we have somewhat of a treatment and then we make it so. It's really nerve wracking because imagine if you said to a screen writer go off and Start writing now that we love this idea. And we've sold it to the studio but we're going to have the entire crew that eventually gonNA shoot it sort of your shoulders while you type. And that's pretty much how we work. So it's can be super stressful because you and what we learned on on a bumpy way over that time was to embrace failure so the thing the only thing I think that makes us really unique. Because it's not a fun factory here but it's a safe place. It's a safe place to fail. We expect you to fail. We expected to be encouraged to take risks. And try things that you wouldn't normally be brave enough to do otherwise because that's always where we had historically solve certain problems or found the gold to to mine and we found that there's a you can create a sort of disciplined method of a failing as you move forward and slowly evolve the closest thing. I can probably equate it to is work shopping play. If anybody's ever been involved in theater. The playwright has all the power or at least the authority and they write something and then they put it up on. Its with tables and chairs at some point on a stage with some actors and with fully expecting after the workshop at. They're GONNA go back and fix what they don't like. We basically do that but with a lot of expensive equipment and a lot more people a lot more overhead. So we're not cheap. All right there you have it Another glimpse inside the workings of the mysterious hit factory. That is Pixar and I found it really fascinating that he says that they give them so much freedom to fail when pretty much all..
"stanton" Discussed on It Happened In Hollywood
"Yes so as we teased. We wanted to pick episode and my favorite. Pixar movie by far. Is Wally useful film? And so we took a shot and we asked if the Director Writer Wally Andrew Stanton the one of the founders of Pixar would would do our show and he said yes and so crazy. I was in Syria shock. That he said yes. He doesn't do many interviews but he did. So you're in for a treat. The guy is I don't know what you save. There's something so fundamental. He reached out and touched my heart. Yeah Corny for a second now. He's like it definitely you get that feeling. He's just one of the guys. Yeah and all that comes through in his films. You've seen toy story. Finding Nemo the sequel to finding Nemo Finding Dory he is the second animator hired a pixar after John last. But you know what it's really is a group effort over there so even if he doesn't get like it is but if your credit goes he's contributing to all the pixar movies they're a think tank but you know he's he's a great he's a giant he's like you know. Walt Disney adjacent and in terms of the influence. He's had over popular culture and animation. So okay enough building up and I think we made the point. This is a big deal. Yeah all right. Let's go back in time. A bit to two thousand and eight. This is an interesting period in American history. Basically the economy completely collapses. Oh my God. All these huge banks go under people are losing hope and then. Wally dropped into theaters in June of two thousand and eight now. What do you remember of wally? That the first fifteen twenty minutes are virtually kind of well. It's dialogue less so silence of that being very arresting. Yeah and also you know for Disney film. It was set on this bleak garbage planet earth. Earth well no way wizard earth. I'm earth right now right. Well like Earth in the future. What's so intense about the movies like you're of looking at what's what's going to happen to our home and what's going to happen to us. Because in the second half they go up in space and humans have evolved. These blobs that never look up from their screens. Which pretty much where we are now. So it right onto space crews. It's basically a very bleak vision for a Disney movie and yet within it. Is this beautiful love story between two robots and it. It made a huge impression on me. I was very taken by this movie and specifically by Wally. If you don't fall in love with wally there's something wrong with your heart. Yeah and there's just something beautiful about the movie that it's like a like a foreign film robot movie anyway we cover all these things with with Andrew we cover. How has this bleak but prescient vision of where things are heading with the environment and with technology and You know the more charming silent film aspects or foreign film aspects of it. But why don't we start just with where? He was in his career when wally as notion for popped into his head. Right after we finished toy story. So we're talking ninety five we didn't. We were so focused on trying to finish a movie. We didn't really think about what if this succeeds. And we'll have to keep going and we'll have to keep people employed that we've hired and So we were in a mad scramble to come up with what we would do next and a bug's life of course is what ultimately came to mind. I but in our sort of brainstorming. Over the sort of now infamous lunch we SORTA blurted out What if there was a robot and was the last robot on earth and it just kept going doing its job because it didn't know that it could stop that and it was such a lonely futile character. I was like immediately attracted to it and couldn't stop thinking about it but then we had to be so all hands on deck to as a just the entire company to get the next several films working and out the door that it it really took until middle of Working on Nemo. So you're talking. Gosh that would have been ninety nine. Yeah like four or five years. Later I'm trying to do rewrites on Nemo and I'm and everybody's waiting sort of equivalent of everybody's waiting on set and I I'm such a procrastinator when I write and I couldn't stop Thinking about this robot suddenly and I ended up writing the first act to what you now know as wally when I should have been rewriting. The fixes on Nemo and I told myself that that was productive. Procrastination I was not really wasting time. I love that you know. His way to procrastinate. Is just two. Toss off the first act of Wally. Right. What's most people to Jayme? But can I say though in writer? That's the thing that happens to. I'm sure that's happened to you before you're working on something and then suddenly there's the shiny new idea and you're like us better. You know because you've been sitting on the other thing for longtime exactly. Yeah Yeah it's very very common. Okay so he has. He has the first act outlined or I don't know how much work he did on it but he he sees this movie and he brings it to and this is like it's going to be like all stars like these names. It's like all the heroes of Pixar so he brings it to his his CO worker. Pete doctor who of course went on to do up and inside out. And you've seen them on the Academy Awards accepting trophies but He he went over to Pete and said. Hey Pete what. What do you think about this idea? And then I pitched it to doctor because he was the one that had thought he might turned into a movie way back earlier in the nineties and couldn't crack it and then he ended up cracking this idea about monsters under your bed which we all know about now and So I said Pete. Would you mind if I ran with this? And he goes no and I go. Why can't find any of the development work you did on it any of the drawings and he goes. Oh they're in a shoebox under my bed. I'm like what like that's how how fancy we are up here. And he went and looked at it and the next morning he called me and said you know what I fell in love with again. I'd like to do it and I said fuck well. Do you mind if I kind of produce it with you because I just would love to see it made. I don't really have to have ownership of it or anything I just really want to know. We're enough of a band up here that we're like fine. Can I just be a part of it? And he said sure and then he developed it for awhile and ran with the first act I had and still couldn't crack and in John. Basically just decided that he had been so burned by ants and bugs life being competition and he knew his good friend wedge was going to come up with this movie called robots that he didn't want to do the same to anybody else and so he kind of just killed it and you gotTa jump a couple of years later and I'm finishing Nemo. It's huge. Nobody saw that coming. I get an Oscar and I realize nobody can say no to me and you know what I'd like to do that little movie of the robot that nobody will allow us to do so. That's an interesting little tidbit in there. Which was he's mentioned John. So that's John lasseter. The head of Pixar was annoyed. That the movie Ans- came out. Which was I think dreamworks where I am right. A computer animated thing with Woody Allen playing an aunt and it came at the same time as a bug's life now of course no one really remember but a bug's life is a more minor classic in the Pixar Cannon. But you could see. He was annoyed and so he didn't WanNa make a robot movie right. But then we have this idea of capital and ones you win an Oscar. No one could say not. That remind me of Freakin. When he won for the French connection and no one could say no to him Give you the keys to the candy store. Yeah exactly that specifically so p doctor did some drawings. But they weren't exactly of the wally that we see in the movie. That kind of came as an inspiration to Andrew Stanton. Yeah very unlikely location. That was an epiphany. I was at a baseball game with my editor on. Nemo and I borrowed his binoculars and then I missed an entire inning just looking at the binoculars and started to make them sort of happy and mad and sad and I remember doing that as a kid with my dad's binoculars and I suddenly realized how you could get all this emotion out of a simple piece of Technical where beyond something like Alexa length. Because I knew I wanted something where you would anthropomorphized it. And that it wouldn't have to literally speak a language that you had to understand and And that just cracked it open for me. And then that's pretty much what I did. Put binoculars on top of a trash compactor. Amazing I have to say there were certain moments. That kind of I almost started to cry in this interview. Yeah Yeah I don't know why. Oscar is on top of a CR- recipes something about that image of him sitting at a baseball game and playing with binoculars and the character. Wally comes to life is so I don't know it just touches my inner child. I was sure it's just your creativity exactly a lot of people. Don't look at the world that way but for someone who is a animator like Andrew Stanton. He sees a lot of things that way. And as we tease before you know Andrew did a great job of teaching us how animator see the world in completely different way than regular people and he had a great way of putting it when I asked him how he came up with all the physical humor that while he does in the movie that is actually the easiest of all the stuff to do because it's innate in animators to physical is things and I don't know if Any of you know animators but they tend to be a type. They tend to be people that love to observe and there. I call them shy actors. They just naturally have an instinct for observing characteristics of what people do in say to operate in the world but they're shy actors. They're not going to go and repeat it themselves but they will do it withdrawing or with a character they've created so you stop us from looking at the world like that and thinking of that stuff so what I all. I really do created a playground that allowed a lot of great. Cheyenne actors to come up with stuff and I also took advantage of the fact that I wasn't dialogue dependent so I could put a lot of animators to work really early while I was still writing the story and just as long as I had the character. Sort of designed in a rough form Some of the gags you actually see while he do in the first act are tests that I had them do sort of or equivalent having actors do stuff in rehearsal and we and we saved the stuff in rehearsal and used it because it was so good and it helped me figure out who the character was while we were well. We were writing. So it's in a weird way. It's not that dissimilar to what you do with some writers and directors do with actors if they know they're cast is early and then the star wars of it is is pretty liberal. I mean I fell in love. I was the Ripe Age of eleven. When Star Wars came out now on all I'll ever wanted to do was revisit what it was like to be on tattooing and and believe it was all real every inch of it which you know also reveals a lot about. Why did John Carter the way I did but it was also a sense of I loved the world of alien and I wanted that visceral sort of real universe to exist as well. Just I guess I'm more G. rated level what about the decision to make his little sidekick like a literal cockroach not a cute cockroach but literally. I know I mean to me. I took it as a challenge. Like come on. We can make cute cockroach without the is without the aid of gloves. Come on and And you can. You can make almost anything cute if you really try hard enough. His name is Hal. It actually is and and it's a sort of hybrid of Hal Roach from two little rascal cartoons and hybrid of Hal. The computer so that was. That's very conscious. Why didn't know that you know that one? No I did. It makes sense. How the Roach Right? But I liked his little a reference to the gloves and the top hat or Jimmy Cricket or Mickey Mouse and any other room in that Disney make with allow fits but he was like no. I'M GONNA make my vermin look like vermin and still be cute bright. That's part of his genius. So why don't we explain a little bit of the plot so so? Wally is Is but you're right. He's the only robot on the planet. He's doing his job because that's always ever done which is taking a piles of garbage and making little cubes out of them. Right and HAL is little cockroach sidekick all right of course and every night. There's some kind of sandstorm or garbage storm. And so they have to go into this into the that he lives in. Yes abandoned spaceship. It's really quite sad. It's a really touching because he's so lovable. Part of what's so lovable about him is the way he sounds he goes well. I WANNA lean. It says his name like that to get it..
"stanton" Discussed on Arty Farty
"This talk was recorded as a livestream. astrum conversation actually get really just. Don't be afraid next mass stanton today. We're joined by one of the ambassadors of Australian Rating Allah Matt Stanton. Hi thanks so much for having having me here so exciting to the Roman say. Hi Hi so not Stanton is the best selling author and Ella strata with over half sorry with more almost a million books I read the other day course sold and he is the CO creator of several bestselling picture books including the mega hits. There's a monster under my bed. Who Fats Birth Zillah and this? This is a ball in two thousand seventeen he launched. He's funny kid series which debuted as number one kid's book and there are now five books in the series so there's a lot of questions so let's just get strident shall we. The first question comes from in the roommate's from Oscar from Darling first public school and he's GonNa ask this question. How old were you when you discovered your love of Bena? Sorry Taylor thanks Oscar. What a great question? How how old was I when I discovered my love of being a storyteller well look? I've always loved books and I've always loved reading and I've loved creating stories stories but I particularly remember when I was eleven when I was eleven on. I tried to write the funniest story that I possibly could. We were writing clause at school and we had to write a story and I tried to write a really really funny story and so I wrote the funniest story that I could and I gave it to my teacher and I thought excellent okay. Great and my went home now. My teacher turned out quite like my story and Shea gave it to the principal which I didn't know and then the principal had this great idea. The principle was like. Why don't we get Matt? That really shy really short kid. Who wrote the story? Why don't we get him and we'll make him stand up in front of the entire school assembly and read his story to the whole school and I was like no? I don't WanNa do that. I'm so nervous but I did. That's what made me do so I stood up in front of the school and I read my funny story now when I was doing that. Something really interesting happened for me to read this story. Some of my friends started to the law at my funny story and then some more kids started off at my funny story. Some older kids some kids that I wasn't really friends with they started to laugh at my funny story. I know I thought hang on a minute. This is Kinda cool like this is pretty cool that something that just came out of my imagination. Something I just made up. He's making my friends off and so from then on icon. It became came a bit obsessed. I became a bit obsessed with the idea of making funny stories and Kurai Create Funny Stories to make people laugh. And that's what I do now. That's my whole job so a lot of time. You also illustrate books. When did you discover that you could draw as well as sure? Well look. I always loved during a drew. I drew a lot. I would draw. Draw all over my school books and I would draw cartoons and comics and things like that but to be honest. I didn't think I would be able to do anything with my during. I thought my drawing was just something fun and silly that I liked to do and so I realized that actually you can create stories from rising thing and from drawing those things go together really. Well when you WANNA create a funny story then I realized Oh this is kind of fun. I can create funny stories with my riding and with my joining. How who were you reading when you a kind of the age group of your writing now well who are your favorite authors says my favorite authors so Roald Dahl definitely who he likes? Roll down excellent. The role doll was amazing. I loved George's marvellous novelist medicine. I loved I loved the BEF J.. Then I think I was reading a lot of more Scotsman as well so misery got some two weeks with the Queen. Some really funny stuff that he was writing earlier on. I really enjoyed that and pull jennings lots of funny books but I also I loved the library. I spent a long time in my school library and I would try all sorts of different books. Great this question comes from the year falls at West Lawn Public School School and the question is who are what was your biggest inspiration to start writing and why I think probably early probably rolled down. I think probably the idea that so Georgia's marvellous medicine for example. That's an entire book about how to Kill Your Grandmother Right. That's crazy that you can write these crazy kind of ideas and come up with these amazing different sort of nuts stories that was kind of inspiring to me the fact that I could use my imagination your imagination that sort powerful and then you can use it to create anything and you can make up things adorning exist yet and I love that so I think that's probably one of the one of the most inspirational moments for me. This is another question from Scots College and year. Fives lives and sixes. Okay and the question is why did you decide to become a voice for children and not adults when you write. What a great question? So the truth is I. I wasn't really sure who I was going to write stories for. Originally I knew I wanted to rise stories but I didn't kind of know what stories I was is going to write straight away. I really funny stories but I wasn't sure if that's what I was going to do and I I wrote screenplays for awhile. I thought I might write movies and TV shows. I and I played around with writing books for adults and and and then I realized something really really special about kids books when when you are at school and you kind of your in this spot where you're deciding if you're someone who likes reading or not and then often you make that decision when you're at school you kind of go on someone who likes reading. I'm someone who hasn't really found a book that I like to read and often you make that decision and then you kind of decide. That's the sort of person that you are and so there are lots of grownups who say I don't like reading because at school I didn't find that they like to rate and so I realized realized by writing kids books by creating books for kids. I had this opportunity to really really affect someone's life in a really positive way because I believe in reading I I believe reading is really really important and so to be able to create books for kids. I've found to be really rewarding and special and when I get an email from a kid or from their mom or dad that says I I hated reading I didn't like rating but then I read one of your funny kid books and it was great and now I want to read another one now. I want to read another one. I have that kind of that tingling moment of like this is worth doing this is fun it can be really gift for life. Exactly we're gonNA move onto something that I'm pretty sure all the teachers out they're are GonNa really love. Okay what would you say of the common themes that you really pull apart in all of your books and why are these important not okay common themes in my books so I would say the most common theme in my books is fun. That's what I'm the most passionate about. I reckon not everything they found out you guys. They not pretty thin another one. Try Excellent it.

"What that would've been. Although there are many kids in our school. who were you know if they were freaking out on angel dust or other drugs would go to this? Private psychiatric facility was a few miles from my house. My family couldn't afford it up at some of my friends did end up. They're actually write another part. A really powerful part of the book to me to kind of going back on. That is later in the book. You reflect doc back from more of current time looking back at this and there's there's a melancholy to in looking back back on that but then there's also kind of a feeling of like. Wow you made it through. Yeah thank you know looking back was hard. Some of those things were hard to face up to but I really wanted to give voice to that teenage girl that I was and also give voiced two other teenage girls and to sort of show the heart. What's in the hearts and minds of a teenage girl? You know so that. Maybe there's something that we can all this useful for understanding those girls experiences so oh you know it was difficult to look back but at the same time and I did have to figure out. Well how do I deal with this shame. Do I forgive myself. But I learned a lot about the adolescent brain in a neurobiology and you know so yeah it was definitely Cathartic Chile back as well to finally let go of this through this book once I wrote the whole story and then you know spent years revising and editing hip but once I got that whole story out there was a release. There was a big it was out of me. And that's that and now I'm going to make it public so this is a public confession had but I did that hopes of helping other people understand right. Yeah I mean I think that's so such a big part of our journey right and to be able to share that to other people. I mean I think your book really captures that adolescence struggle when when we're a little bit lost and we don't know where to go I mean I it resonated with me so much because you know I was about the same age when I got help a seventeen you know and been drinking all the time and just you know pot can get into angel dust or anything like that. Luckily think auditing grew up in the opiate epidemic. That scares. There's me Hilson way you know I think if it was there I would have done it but it was a so but that feeling you really capture it and I I think for anybody out there who wants to understand that I think this. I think your book really really does that really well. I appreciate you writing it and I appreciate you putting yourself without there for other people to hear the story yet. I mean thank you for saying that I just that was my hope relate to mainly to sort of give some insight of possible possible into what was going on and there's the thing is there's a lot of people so I teach now at university so I'm just associate professor and I have all these colleagues and now I gave a reading there the the other night from the book and I in the middle of the reading. I just had to look up and say you all didn't know this about me. You know nobody no one knows your pass but the other thing that's been happening when I've been given even reading says that people have coming up to me and they've been emailing me and facebook messaging me and saying this is my story or this is my sister story or this happened opened in my family and thank you for sharing a lot of people carrying around those things. I mean we've gotten over it. We figured out how to get ourselves out of it or get the help we needed to get ourselves out of it. But it's still in us an so releasing it. I don't know maybe reading the book people feel they can release their own pass to own up to read and sort of say that happen and then I think it just makes us more understanding of everyone. Who's going through something if you realize that? So many people do even the people don't suspect had gone through something like this right. I know it really in a way as I read it. I was just finishing it yesterday. So I'm like still in the process of reading it but it reminded me of you know when in some of the darkest moments where we would. Just listen to like pink floyd the wall over or I would anyway over and over and over at melancholy of just that that angst and and you captured it but at the same time being able to see the way out and see that you're out of that you know and appreciate that so I think there's there's something unique that you had a simple experience of having this addiction in high school and the opioid crisis. Now we know expecting people in their twenties to forties. That's the big group. I'm not saying it's not happening in high school. It is 'cause I have students writing about it but when you're in that developmental stage and you're doing drugs I think it just adds a layer of confusion to the whole thing you don't even have the psychology of intellect yet to really figure out what's happening with yourself and you can kind of feel like you missed some of your development or your child once he kinda get out of it and you start to grow and nurture yourself and learn and grow and you kind of realize he missed a big chunk of it in a way. It's really true. That's I agree with that. I mean you know. The part of the reason is subtitled a delinquent girl that is the other meaning of delinquent which is late. Because if you don't spend those years of tenth grade eleventh grade nine four dollars L. learning how to interact with other people learning how to speak in class and raise your hand and be confident out of stink uncowed to be social. You know it just it gets delayed and so and then you know wasn't a train line of quitting so the book sort of truncates at a certain point way but did take me a few more years because to really pull back from drugs and drinking because you go to college and you're in a party atmosphere there was still lots of drugs around there was LSD acid. There was crystal meth came in cocaine. This is early eighties. Cocaine came in so you know I did end up falling into that a little bit. It wasn't like the daily habit I have advocacy P.. and wasn't like what I was saying. Probably kind of an addiction at least a very strong habit but I didn't stop all that for a couple more years probably I finally you know maybe when I was twenty my junior in college I finally was like I'm done with this. You know I'm done with this. I'm excited about the intellectual pursuits and Artistic Research Zyppah. Some people who are interesting to talk to and not just you know party that you found your way out of it you know Kinda grew your way out of it. I don't know burst similar. Yup I think row with part of it. I mean if you read these books that we know so much more now about some rain the adolescent brain. And now we know that your a brain isn't fully developed the decision making part of things until you're twenty four twenty five you know so you have teenage this unique thing happening where your hormones. The Image Alana things are causing you want excitement and risks and thrill. But you don't have the prefrontal CORTEX which is putting the brakes on a moral reasoning long-term consequences sequences of your actions not yet developed so as you are maturing. You know you're learning you start gaining those skills for for caring for yourself really right definitely definitely and marine. Just want to thank you for coming onto the podcast in talking about insuring your book. If anybody's out there listening. Listen I hope people are listening. What would you want to tell you? I would want to just say you know if they're teenagers listening or PPM. People feeling that sort of awkwardness confusion. Like only they are having having problems you know to reach out for help than for adults. I would say look around teenagers and they made me needing help they really May. And it's not going to be like just asking engineer. Help you have to stick with it. My teachers would say does she need help. And then you know I don't need help and then that's it may quit. You gotTA keep at it. Because that's what it takes I think so. So how is there's no shame in that at all asked for her but if we can help keep supporting people who are doing it. Thank you so much.

"And I'll see you there okay. We are onto episode so seventy eight and my guest. Today is Marine Stanton and she is the author of the memoir body leaping backwards words a memoir of a delinquent girlhood and I really enjoyed this interview. I was so looking forward to talking to marine after reading the book and I actually finished the day before I did the interview with Marine and was really blown away by and it spoke so eloquently you to my own experience of growing up and drug use and alcohol use and just that adolescent. Oh I I call it. Despair sadness angst. Angie cavs it so well on her buck and it's such a great message for young kids out there air today who might be struggling or two parents who want to understand them and maybe what they're going through so I was so happy to have her on the podcast and I think you're going to enjoy this interview as well so let's go ahead and start all right everybody. Welcome to the addicted mind podcast. I my guest. Today is Marine Stanton. And she's the author of the book bodily being backwards a memoir of delinquent girlhood. Good morning thank you for coming on the show so much for having me. I'm really honored to be on your show awesome so I have a lot of questions I have to say. I love your book. I just finished a yesterday and I have to say it resonated so much with me and my own journey and how you captured your. I don't know that feeling of that childhood was just astounding so my first question in is. How did you decide to write this? or how did this come to be thank you so much I really appreciate. You read the book and thanks for your generous comments about it. This is a book that I have been writing for literally forty years but I was always I was always avoiding actually taking it to the point of being published because there was shame there for me about not some of that I had done. And it's not just you know the drugs and the partying and the you know Angel Dust and PCP. But you know when you've lost yourself that way you're doing things you you wouldn't ordinarily do like steal niche vandalism and things like that so it was difficult to go back and say said. I knew that I would someday and in two thousand fourteen gene. When I started writing the Book My Dad had passed away? I didn't even make the connection. I just started writing the book. That fall thinking. Oh this is why I'm finally thinking. Oh let me work on this project. Because I wouldn't want him to feel bad and guilty and ashamed you know he did the best you code so but what I wanted to do with this book. I I wanted to tell the story that happened so long ago that I do think it resonates today because it's a teenager and there's certain that happened in teenagehood that even though the specifics are different than my teen in the nineteen seventies there are things that are really relevant folks like for example trying to hear who you are trying to figure out what your values as are moving away from your parents finding out what your passions are who your friends are figuring out your whole body and all that kind of stuff and so for me. That was a time of great anxiousness indices and sadness and confusion and I turned to drugs just just self medicate basically and I pretty much say that my tenth and Eleventh Grade Experiences Nice will all were not very useful just filled with with escaping. Really right and you know as I was reading the book and you're I want to say the character but it's not really care it's you but the girl in there you know how her life starts to use start to build this. I guess I just say this picture of this girl going through her childhood and then I guess the divorce happens and that was a profound moment woman for you and then it sounds like you started to drift away or disappear I I wanted to disappear. You know when I think about about what. The drug that I did was angel dust who was very prominent in the seventies and it still around today of course but it doesn't get a lot of attention in the OPIOID crisis but angel. Dozens of dissociation associative anesthetic. So what I wanted to do. I started having feelings of self doubt and lack of self confidence and even to the point of self loathing and so it dissociation association of anesthetic. Both not me and a dissociated me for myself. I didn't have to think of those things that teenagers happy about such being self conscious being anxious having social phobias of losing that confidence spiny away. And you know if you come from a family like mine which I had a good family and then my parents divorced and we got a lot of kids and so my mother was back at work on. My Dad wasn't around and so we were just on our own. Without that guidance it was just from each Namba sort of uncomfortableness list and sadness and pain even of teenagehood. That seemed to be the perfect truck was just around them right and sounds like you really captured it. Well that feeling that this is how I think a lot of kids start using drugs as a way to get away from that sadness the loneliness the unsure the isolation which leads to that kind of self loathing like you talked about new captured so well it definitely resonated with me. 'cause it's it's almost like in some ways like my childhood to accept I wasn't using. PCP using like alcohol and stuff like that but got help early and was able to kind of find my way through it. But what really resonated me with me was the feeling that you created and I wondered if you could kind of talk about that that emptiness or yeah you know because this happened in the seventies and I'm now in my fifties my late fifties. I had my diaries from the time. And when I from the time I was starting into drugs from time I before I did drugs and the time I started doing drugs and started really getting healing that despair I was when I read the diary straight through it over McCain me. I really felt once again like this fifteen year old girl. who was you know out in the parking? Lot of school self-conscious afraid not cool. There's a cool jazz over there. You you know feeling like my acne. My whatever you know all those things you know not going on as a teenager I really felt that again now presently so I was able to convey that I think on the page because I really had those diaries that were that was really recorded and I think that you know some kids citing joe better especially with guidance but but there's a lot of kids that I think start becoming drug users drinking or poly drug users during those fraught years between childhood and adulthood. I think it's it's like I think of a bridge crossing certain splurge treacherous terrain. All the things that you have to do in teenagehood. There's peer pressure as well and you know whatever ever. The circumstances are of the culture at the time. Now we have you know social media and smart smallest to escape with a teenager stu back then we had marijuana drinking drinking drinking ages. Eighteen was so easy to get hall. We would stand behind the liquor store and ask anybody to go by and they would. We never got turned down. We had one hundred percent so you know success rate so things were different so whatever the circumstances of the time if you're a team that's looking in any way having some kind of psychic pain and you're looking for something there's GonNa be something out there especially have no guidance especially on some as watching carefully whether it's school or cancer or parents or older siblings even right right what I love about your book. Is that it really captures that. And it's Kinda has this feeling of to me when I read it. It's kind of slowly building but really when I think about it as a teenager. That's only a couple of years. It happens when you look back. It happened so fast but at the time it seems so slow and long and I think that's why maybe people miss it a lot because you know. Naturally we expect teenagers to withdraw to start not talking to their parents and sharing a little moody and Weird and you know Mea crying screener shouting whatever you know a little dramatic we expect that but to associate that with weather doing drugs I think might be tricky for parents or at least it was back then but yes you know started. Drinking on weekends was a whole lot of kids. Marijuana came in and then oh next L.. His try this is angel dust.
"stanton" Discussed on Boomer & Gio
"Stanton returns tonight, Jerry have not seen him in. Gene, Giancarlo Stanton. And call us Yonne Giancarlo. Colin Saone boost of all those guys. But John Carlos, Dan. We'll be back tonight. What do you think the Ovation's going to give you three options mild? Okay. I'm sorry. What were your options? Was sort of one of them. I was going to say, like an indifferent sort of clap, which would be mild. Right. You hear some booze, right? Sprinkled in, or you get like a big standing over, no buzz buzz, mild. Yeah, definitely no buzz. But you would think a guy of that stature returning to a lineup with former MVP. He's been out for a long time. Home game against the raise. You've been battling first place. You would think at a normal situation. Everybody getting going crazy wasn't an MVP here. I know I know basically a just a okay player for who he is last year for the thirty eight thirty nine home runs only forty. Yeah. The up just short of forty. If I think you're right. I think it's thirty eight and one hundred how nice season. Yeah. Right. But it was how he got there that didn't. I mean, there was a stretch in the middle where he carried the team offensively bites reminiscent of a rod. Yeah. Really is. It's there were years with. A rod where he would carry the team the World Series year. He was amazing. We know that right in the postseason running had was great man. There were seasons era. God poed and you'd see them with the gloves with gun like you could see that it was really getting. I remember there was a game. I want to say it was nearly game against the Braves. Maybe I'm wrong. But I think it was against the Braves and he was mired in one of those horrific slumps where you just you felt bad for him. This is a rod, and he couldn't do a damn thing. And he had a game winning home run like a bat flip or toss for the ages. And it was like this big monkey was off his bat. But he took a beating when he struggled because you get paid what you get paid. You got to perform, and right wrong or indifferent fair unfair, Giancarlo Stanton. Makes a fortune. He's a former MVP and he had a nice season last year. Right. But he also is the mascot for the criticism of all Yankee fans of this team. Yeah. Which is home run or nothing too many strikeouts, not enough. Contact. You know that, that whole. Thing that everybody, complains about, and it's funny because, you know, in this stretch, where Stanton and judge haven't been around. It's not like the Yankee stopped hitting home runs. No, they hit a lot the old the biggest difference. I guess is DJ LeMay. You is a guy who's, who's a contact hitter guy like geo shell. I mean he's hit home runs. But you look at him as more of a contact hitter. So it's not like these guys aren't gleyber Torres went on a tear against the Orioles at home runs. Gary Sanchez a tone of home runs. It is record setting seasonal in baseball to Sherman, their shattering records all over the place. But it's not like the Yankees are at like, you know, suicide squeeze in hit and runs and bloop single on their way to these wins when these guys have been out. You're just you're getting performances from unexpected sources, I guess, is probably the best way to, you know, guys that you thought would contribute, but not lead. I mean you've got guys doing things this year every everybody. They've pretty much trotted out into a starting lineup has done something positive and has control. Wanted in some way. So it's just a different when you lose his many guys, the Yankees lost. They become the little Yankees that could. And when they do, it's a nice story. And then all of a sudden the stars come back now, it's, it's kind of, like I think Joe and Evan were saying this yesterday. I think driving home. They said the Yankee seasons. Nice. Oh, foreign this goes to the point where we've always talked about, what do you say about them? They're expected to be in the playoffs, and it's like they're only really a story if they're losing. Yeah. Because they're supposed to win a winning this division is going to be very, very important. And it's not like they jumped out to a big lead, for sure. But don't you have the sense at least I do, they're going to be there somehow someway and the season starts when the season ends. Yeah, yes. Of course. And it's always that way with the Yankees. However, I mean, the last couple of years, they have not won the division the division. They play in that wildcard game. But they've also still been there. Yeah. They've won the wildcard game. And I've gotten to the DS in the AFC a couple of years ago. And of course. Fluid into the Red Sox in the AL DS last year. So winning this division, I think is extremely important for them. So there's a little bit more during this regular season. But I think there's a chance that they hit nine straight home runs. Some point during the why the hell of nights. Everybody through the line. Of course. I'm not serious. But yeah, I mean when all these guys are back. It's that's going to be fun because we haven't seen it yet. Now, then in Cornell Yonne on top of it. It's going to be even better. So this is going to be a crazy crazy summer for them. Just a matter of who they trade for two that rotation. Let's go to Mike in Hoboken. What's going on Mike? Jerry. What is going? What's up Mike knocking? I just want to say one thing, real quick, Jean Carlos thin right now are going to lose their minds. Tonight we've been hearing for GIO or shelhah for months. Nobody knew who he was three months ago. And you're telling me the former MVP the guy who got arms the of tires is not gonna walk up that Ben people are gonna lose their mind. You aren't they are. Yeah. No way going to be there. And I'm telling you, I will be cheering, I would imagine everybody else will now strikes out the Technet. To they are going to rock the stadium for this guy. He's been out and obviously judge he come back all different story. I mean, I think I think Phil though, that he's going to go Asian because you know what? It's his time now he's been out for a while. We've been having two sets without extra bat like that. People are gonna pre she it back. They're gonna go nuts. Yeah. Mike. I, I hope so. And if you're going to the game, you're big Yankee fan, you should give him a big standing ovation. Get him off to a nice positive start. I o b it's both five hundred fifty feet might be capable of it. Yeah, I just I don't see I mean I think it's going to be underwhelming. I, I don't think there's going to be boos. When he comes back, obviously not going to be clam mild, clapping. It's just it's going to be underwhelming. Like if he was a guy who last year. Hit sixty one home runs carried them through the season and had this monster year and they were struggling a little bit right now. Then he comes back I could see a rousing standing ovation this teams in first place. And they have missed them. Mm. Yeah. If our current Aaron judge comes back on the homestand, then that's you're gonna see absolutely Shen that different situation. I mean it's your rights classic. Geeta A rod all over again. It is, is just it's the same guy essentially one's homegrown. The other one isn't one. You feel about in the clutch the other one not this is a great comparison because you had, you know, jeeter the Yankee against a-rod brought, and they played right next to each other on the infield. You got judge the Yankee Stanton brought, and they play the next to each other. But in the outfield is interesting, right? And they're both. It's similar players in the sense that, you know, big home runs. Big brooding guys. Right. I mean it's just it's, it's a it's a redo of that insurance, nothing. Like jeeter said nothing, right? It's pretty good. Let's go to Lenny in Randolph. What's going on? Lenny. We doing. I wonder if you saw that plane. Night on time were they had four out. Yes. Not your. Why couldn't he couldn't hit the ball struck out twice leading up to that? And they didn't have that shift on them. And then they had the shift on him and his his third at the head earlier the game they had enormous shift three infielders on the left side and the first baseman probably twenty five feet offers base. But the one in the seven I think it was the seventh inning where they had the high shot from above, and you've got three infielders and I knew could only see three outfielders in the camera shot, I was wondering if they were playing with eight. String softball. Short fielder. Yeah. We are. We are definitely used to that whole thing. Yeah. It's a strange one. It's and I don't know why that point in the game because Torino's was still pitching at that point. Right. So it's. I don't think so he wasn't. No. I don't think so. Okay. All right. So that's probably why then that's probably why they, they changed it because Torino's modem down first couple of times up, and they had the normal shift on the why the hell with a change at that point. I think at that point. Okay. I think it's to Brian and point pleasant New Jersey. What's going on, Brian? Yeah, he'll guys. Hello, listen. I earlier you were talking about maybe and how, you know, he's gonna get sent down can't get sent down because he's got no option. So the FAM or they gotta train them, right? So I mean, if you do send them down something's gonna pick them up, which means I think our shell. It's gotta be the guy that goes down. Yeah. I mean do you really see that happening? I mean out of these, here's the difference is you're getting outfielders back and you just added, another D H guy in, in space, though, incur Nacional saying, yeah, I mean, I don't know if he will. But. Tell you what, though as he's speaking, and you're talking, it does make sense standpoint of if you've got DD back healthy. Now, you got LeMay Hugh, you got Torres. You got Voight. You got Encarnacion makes ace it does. Make sense, does our shell. I don't know if he's got up Sion's either though. I think that you're gonna lose one of those guys for good. So die means. And if it comes down to that, I would take my chances with Cameron maiden really Cameron may, I would think, over the course of his career, to have to look at the numbers I think it's been a better pro GIO. Or shelhah has been amazing over the last year. I grant you that I understand that he's been a surprise. But prior to this runs beyond been on. I don't think he's been much of a pro, you know camera may actually had a career. Yeah, I just I, I don't know. He's been in a league for years, and, you know, but it's now it's time, you know, like you gotta, you know, you know, go to one of the other and to me for shelhah can spill if he still has options, she got to send them down, you know, trying to confirm it there, Bryan. But I don't think that either one of I think both of them are out of the options and that's why you saw the Frazier, then talk men and that's why they've sort of waited with these two guys and a and a tough decision as to be made. And I think I don't even think it's an option. No pun intended to, to DFA or Trey GIO or shall I think what is going to come down to is. It's gonna come down to either Mabon gets DFA aid, or they carry twelve pitchers instead of thirteen I don't think they love that option. No. And that thing they don't do that. It's generally thirteen pitchers. Right. I mean, I just think this is one of those things where it's like, hey, man. We appreciate it. But we don't have any room for you. Anymore. Unfortunately, when when Brian Cashman brought him in this, this was a possibility. I don't think you could completely change the plant guys barely gonna play..

"Because he's terrible the start of every season. All right. So just stop talking. How about that? Stop talking. It's not like he actually helped the Marlin situation before. Oh, yeah. How many winning seasons? Did we have with Giancarlo Stanton? I think it was zero Giancarlo Stanton. Such a winner such a leader get the hell out of here. How about good about little baby stadium in New York and hit eight hundred home runs? All right. Yeah. Baby stadium. That place is a joke. You could I could hit it out to right field opposite field with the way that stadium is constructed. What a joke. He should've broke the home run record last season. Why didn't he because he's a bust overpaid overrated? Homerun rush. Homerun record or bus when he was going for the home run record down here. He no he wasn't going to get to seventy whatever it is seventy two seventy three whatever the number is now. So he came out with that. It was a heavy play. My record is sixty two. I'm okay, how about get to sixty. How about that fifty nine? What a joke you had a week to get three extra home runs. You couldn't do it. They had those things. I'm never going to even know what those things were at season tickets. I was going to all those games. I could resell those tickets and made some money, and I didn't because I wanted to see you do something that you couldn't do break this fictitious home in record that you're going by. It's not even the real record. And the Marlins hung these things from the roof in the outfield that year, and I was trying to figure out what they were. And I'm assuming they were going to do something when you got to sixty and we never figured out what they were gonna ask them. What those things were because there was stuff hanging from the ceiling on the inside of of the stadium, and they were going to do something to celebrate something. And I couldn't even figure out what they were. They were going to do something to celebrate telling you there were like fireworks confetti or something that they were gonna shoot off when he did something memorable. And of course, he didn't do anything memorable classic Stanton. So. You were never this kind of fired up Giancarlo Stanton. At least I don't REM I know that his his slumps would frustrate you a little bit. But I wasn't this fired up driving in today. I don't know what you guys did to me, but he's agitating shots. Unnecessary shots. Seven eight six four five six three seven. If you want to get Giancarlo Stanton. A piece of your money is a little odd that Loria and Samson they had this reputation of irking some players even stained didn't get along. He seems an admitted that there was like one a moment of friction between the two, but jeeter sort of picked up right there with some players just being p owed atom JT. These are young players JT for JT to have some sort of egos. Kind of weird that JT forced his way out of here. Yellow doesn't like staying doesn't like these are two of the three are MVP's. One of them is an all-star Derrick jeeter one of the class. He has players in the game for. Him to already start having these relationships with players and it being contentious helm, I suppose to extend him the benefit of the doubt for later on if he's already agitating everybody. I think it's different when you like he didn't have relationships with these guys he's coming in fresh. So like, we had all these relationships we like roommates or yelich, STAN. And he's just like coming in. This place is a mess. I gotta do my thing. I can just imagine him in those meetings. Being like, look, this is impersonal this business. You know, no BS, you're probably going to get trade. Like, I can just imagine him being honest with these guys. And that's why they're like that's why they're all you heard yell at each other. Like, I want out there reports low key that yelich reached out to the Marlins last season. Midseason and apologize. Really? How that whole thing went down. Oh who reported that? I don't remember good. Look like, they're obviously we understand why they're frustrated, but it's never a good look when you're like I got contract, but I wanna also has to do some PR spin speaking of PR spin..

"Different classes of hitters have been affected in different ways and i i think that's because there is sort of a fly ball sweet spot where when you hit the ball a certain distance it becomes disproportionately more likely to turn into home just because of where the outfield fences are in so you've seen guys i would have said like stanton who can hit the ball out of any ballpark by a mile not benefit as much from the ball changing because they were already reaching that sweet spot whereas freddie galves was not reaching that's exactly the inro army that set the guy who who you tudor yeah and so i i thought that actually did make sense but cheer comes stanton trysts opening up a massive lead over any other hitter in baseball so it's been a lot of fun to watch and so has game of thrones dardar it all right let's get to our guest in first we will bring in chris stewart so back in two thousand thirteen i remember going into the yankees clubhouse i was working on a story about catcher framing as i often an and i talked to someone who has systematically excelled at that skill who was at that time the yankees catcher chris stewart and i noticed that he was reading something in the clubhouse as it seems like he always is and it was a song of ice and fire i believe it was the third book may be a storm of swords i can't remember for sure but we talked a bit about that at the time and then i also talk to chris the following year i went to the pirates clubhouse where he is catching and he was also reading something at the time and he is still with pirates he is their backup catcher and he has.
