In this week's Flightless Bird, David sets out to understand American Network News, and the country's obsession with rolling 24/7 news coverage. Why does the Fox News Channel averaged more total viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined and how is American TV news faring in the wake of Twitter and TikTok? David talks to Stacy Scholder, a professor at the University of Southern California who teaches TV journalism. What is she teaching the next generation of TV journalists and what was it like covering OJ Simpson's escape on the LA freeway? He also meets Victor Vlam, a 38-year-old man in the Netherlands who has the biggest collection of news theme songs on the planet. Why does he have 876 hours, 2 minutes and 52 seconds of news music? Victor explains the importance of news theme music and what it says about the news you're about to hear. What's the best news theme song and the worst?

Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers are the producing partners behind some of the biggest American TV dramas of modern times – and they are always female character led. They include Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and of course the Netflix hit Bridgerton – adapted from Julia Quinn's racy novels set in the Regency era in England. The first series was released at the end of 2020, and is well known for having racially diverse cast and steamy sex scenes. Anita Rani speaks to Shonda and Betsy about their work and new projects. We hear how primary school pupils, as well as youngsters from middle class ‘leafy suburbs', are being lured into gangs and county lines drug running according to Anne Longfield in her new report for the Commission on Young Lives. A new project, led by Lancaster University, has created memory boxes, designed to help women whose babies are taken into care at birth while a court determines their child's future. We hear why these ‘Hope boxes' are so important to the women who developed the idea and Research Fellow, Claire Mason who supported them. And discuss why the number of newborns in care proceedings in England and Wales has increased over the past decade.

After Donna Patterson's maternity leave, her employer Morrison's gave her a full-time role, despite her only working part time. She represented herself in a tribunal and she won a £60k pay-out for maternity discrimination. Donna joins Emma Barnett in the studio. As the clocks go back - and the nights draw in- it can get harder to find the motivation to get outdoors and exercise as the couch beckons. At the weekend the Olympic champion cyclist Chris Boardman wrote about this issue as he was aware that his wife and daughters were affected by this. Rather than putting the onus on women to keep safe he wants men to take more responsibility, he joins Emma alongside Robyn Vinter, the North of England correspondent of the Guardian, who is a runner and also wrote about this issue very recently. Tammy Faye – A New Musical tells the story of rise and fall of American TV evangelists Tammy Faye and her husband Jim Bakker, who preached to millions across the country via their own television satellite channel PTL, Ministry and theme park. The musical written by James Graham features original songs by Elton John and Jake Shears of the Scissor sisters. Olivier award winning actor Katie Brayben takes on the role of Tammy at the Almeida theatre in London. It's just one week until the midterm elections in the United States. The Republican Party are widely expected to take the House of Representatives – but the Senate could still go either way. So what does this mean for women in America, and how could their opinions on political issues such as Roe v Wade swing the vote?

Cooper and Nolan are hitting the beach for some pre-Halloween horror this week with a movie that perfectly sums up the 80s... NIGHTMARE BEACH! This low budget slasher was (allegedly) made by at least one Italian director who - based on the ridiculous number of clichés and stock characters - was clearly watching a LOT of American TV. But that didn't stop him/them from filling south Florida with surprisingly respectable amounts of blood, gore, and electrocution, all while creating a movie that's basically adult Scooby Doo. Sound crazy? You have no idea, so get ready for a spring break you'll never forget; this episode (featuring a beer from Black Bellows Brewing Co.) is one nightmare you won't want to wake up from!

When it comes to television game shows, there are just a few that have been around for a very long time. A couple of those are Wheel of Fortune, and Jeopardy!. These shows have really become a part of American culture. But there's another one that's been on the air even longer than those two, because it's currently the longest running game show in American TV history. That show is The Price Is Right. Chances are, you've probably watched it at some point. Just about everyone has. But there are a few things you may not know about this show. The Price Is Right has been seen on all three major networks – NBC, ABC and CBS. Yeah, that's a bit of trivia from back when there were pretty much 3 channels on television to choose from. One of the hosts for many years was Bob Barker. And for a long time, his hair was dyed black. But he didn't like the way it looked. At one point, when he was on vacation, he stopped dying his hair and let it go full gray. The producers of the show were worried about how viewers would respond. But it turns out, people loved Bob's new look. And ratings went through the roof. A couple of well-known celebrities were contestants on TPIR, before they became famous –  Aaron Paul was once a contestant. He played Jesse Pinkman on the really popular series, Breaking Bad. He got all the way to the showcase, but ended up overbidding so he didn't win. The other one was Vanna White. Long before she became the famous and highly paid letter-turner on Wheel of Fortune, she was just another person on Contestant Row, trying to win something. But she actually never made it up on stage. If you're a regular listener of this podcast, you know that a lot of the stories we talk about are really intense, and the guest may have gone through a huge tragedy. So sometimes I like to talk to someone who has been through something that's still really unusual, but happy.  My guest today is Fabiana, and she was in the studio audience for The Price Is Right, and her name was called to “COME ON DOWN”, and she actually DID make it on stage. But there's more to her story.

Two of the most iconic American TV shows of the 1960s are Batman and Star Trek. A surprising number of actors pulled double duty, appearing on both shows, either as regulars, recurring characters, or one-shot roles. This crossover of actors sounds like an interesting topic, but how do we get it into our show? What we settled on was to put these actors in March Madness-type brackets and pit them against each other. On which show did a given actor give the better performance? And how does their performance stack up against one of the other actors'? For part one of this exercise, we compare Stanley Adams (Cyrano Jones on Trek, Captain Courageous on Batman) to Julie Newmar (Eleen on Trek, Catwoman on Batman), and Joan Collins (Edith Keeler on Trek, the Siren on Batman) to Yvonne Craig (Marta on Trek, Batgirl on Batman). We're joined in this exercise by our childhood friend Kyle, who grew up a Trek fan. PLUS: the Chuck Cirino version of the theme, Adam and Burt on the Merv Griffin Show in 1966, and we read your mail!

It seems that everyday the news is full of “gloom and doom.” For those old enough to remember, the American TV program “Hee Haw” featured a segment with some of the cast singing a song about gloom and doom, then some sad but humorous story. Sadly, bad news sells, but it is also true we live in some dangerous and gloomy times. If anything, Christians should be joyful, regardless of the circumstances, but far too often, many live a life of despair.

Hi, Lulu. Hi, James. Let's continue with our talk about American game shows. Alrighty. Let's talk about household names, specifically the host of the three shows we talked about in the basic level, Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy and The Price Is Right.I would imagine with those big three being so popular and then they've been on air for so many years. So the hosts of these game shows they would be, like you said, household names, everyone at least recognize those names even if they don't watch it.For Wheel of Fortune, the hosts are Pat Sajak and Vanna White. These two people are household names, everyone in the country knows them.And how long have they been the hosts?30+ years. And that they never changed hosts?No, I don't think they want to quit because they get paid really well to do this. Multi-million dollar contracts to make the show and…It's not that difficult, is it?It's not like acting. They don't have to remember scripts or anything like that. And so they get paid a lot, and same with Jeopardy's host, Alex Trebek.I've heard that name before, Alex Trebek.Suddenly, his name would show up in the news a lot more now because he has cancer. So Jeopardy is going to have to find a new host in the very near future.And he is still hosting?Yes. He still is, but that's going to come to an end soon…And then… For The Price Is Right, you have the old host Bob Barker which everyone knows, but he retired several years ago. And now is Drew Carey who's a famous comedian and he had it on his own TV shows in the past. Everyone knows these people. Apart from these household names. Are there any references? I would imagine there's some references in terms of the phrases they use on the show, because in China, this was the case. Yeah, that's true, too. So like from Wheel of Fortune, people might use the phrase and conversations like I'd like to buy a vowel when they want to like get clues…and stuff.Get hints. I'd like to buy a vowel. Because vowels are… they are more useful than consonants, aren't they?And like lots of them from The Price Is Right like Come on down or How much do you bid? And all these catch phrases, people will use them for playing other games or they'll… like English teachers use these all the time in class to make classroom games.And is one of those things, if you say to an American, especially in that voice, they would immediately recognize. And you also see parodies of these games.A lot of comedy shows will do parodies of them, and they'll do be parodies of them on sitcoms, and they are that big.I have to say that I'm perhaps more familiar with some of the British game shows because of the summer I stayed England for 2 months. I did watch quite a bit of game shows. A lot of those game shows in the UK, they would have celebrity special, so they would invite famous people or minor celebrities to be the contestants.Oh, we do that too and they play for charity.So that's the same. So they play and the money because they already quite rich, they don't really need the money. They play for exposure and then for charity. Yeah, and those episodes are never serious, like they have Celebrity Jeopardy episodes and they never asked them that hard because...that… doesn't look good, and the celebrities don't take it seriously because no matter what they do, they get money for their charity whether they win or lose.Yeah, in the UK, the only the winner would get money for their charity.American TV shows like You lost. That's okay. We'll still give $10,000 to your charity.

Hello, James. Hi, Lulu. So what are we going to talk about today? I wanna ask you a question, what's on TV at 7:00 pm every night in China? That would be 【新闻联播】, that would be the news. That's not very exciting. In the United States, usually around this time, we would be basically our Game Show hour where there will be two of the biggest Game Shows. Game Show, this is usually with contestants and people competing for a prize. Correct. So these are shows where the contestants are regular people like you or me and they are playing for prizes usually money. 就是这种综艺答题型的节目或者竞技型的节目Game Shows. There're some really long lived Game Shows in America, right? Yeah, we're gonna talk about three of them today. We're gonna talk about these because these are household names in America. They are known by everyone in the country. So even if you don't watch it, you've heard of it. And they are constant references of these Game Shows in American TV shows or movies. Yeah, they'll show up everywhere. 大家看美剧或者说美国电影的时候, 经常就会听见有人提, 其实是一个文化梗。I bet one of them is Wheel of Fortune. It is. The first one we were gonna talk about is Wheel of Fortune. Ok, let's talk about the big three. Yes, so let's start off with Wheel of Fortune (Since 1983). So Wheel of Fortune is basically Hangman game…Guessing Words. It is. Hangman是一个猜单词的双人游戏。由一个玩家想出一个单词或短语,另一个玩家猜出其中的每一个字母。出题玩家一般会画一个绞刑架,当猜词的玩家猜出了短语中存在的一个字母时,出题的玩家就将这个字母存在的所有位置都填上。如果玩家猜的字母不在单词或短语中,那么出题的玩家就给绞刑架上小人添上一笔,直到7笔过后,小人被吊死,游戏结束。So you have three contestants, and then there's a big wheel, like a really big wheel. On each turn one of the contestants will spin the wheel. It will land on a money amounts like $100 $200 $500, something like that. And then they guess letters to try to guess… to put into the phrase and they try to guess the phrase. So if they guess a letter correctly, they can spin again to get a higher amount, then guess another letter and so on and so on.And if they guessed it wrong, then it's someone else's …Then it goes to the next player. If they spin the wheel and lose a turn, it goes to the next player. If they guess wrong like they try to guess the phrase like maybe the phrase is like they should guess like the end of the movie and they say it's the end of the book. Wrong guess, it goes to the next player.Okay, so whoever has the correct guess, how much money is this person collecting? However much they spun and guessed correctly. So it accumulates, so they guessed two letters and each letter was 500, they now get $1,000. Okay. I'm getting a bit confused. Yeah, but don't you get an extra point for guessing the entire sentence? You get to keep the money. Everyone else who didn't guess it loses the money from that round. Okay. So how many rounds are there? I mean, how many phrases are there? Usually there's four or so, because it doesn't take that long to guess the phrase and whoever has the most money at the end will do the final phrase all by themselves. And they'll win a grand prize, usually something like $25,000. So it's not a huge amount of money. Do they do this every day?Yes, Monday through Friday.

First things first, I do my best impression of the absolutely crazy way American TV anchors read news headlines. Then I discuss all the reasons I think I might have died if I lived in an earlier time period (is it weird that I think about this topic a lot?) and I share what I believe to be society's true equalizer. Finally, I unpack some seriously bizarre stories from my childhood that gave me a healthy fear of commitment before I hit double digits.

Back in the day, when existence was only in black and white and our parents rode horses to work, Tom and Jerry was an American TV series of short films that was just nonstop hijinks between a house cat and a scheming mouse (and their friends!), and that simple premise became a legendary forefather of animation. In this episode, you'll find out who thinks Jerry did nothing wrong, whether or not Quibi was a worthwhile business venture, and our favorite Tom and Jerry memes. And no discussion of the 1940s is complete without referencing the American experience of that time - the good and the bad. Content warning: strong language.

So I have a question for you. And it is have you ever noticed how some Americans are always very careful about how they address or refer to other people? What do you mean? Let me give me an example. So a lot of students, when they learn English, they learn words like businessman, but we don't use that word anymore. It's now business person. Oh, ok. So you don't say businessman, you say business person. I know what you're talking about, are you talking about political correctness? PC.Yes, PC, political correctness is the topic of the day. PC直译的话就叫政治正确. I think if you watch a lot of American TV shows or talk shows, you definitely, definitely have heard of this expression, but I think many of our listeners probably don't really know the ins and outs of it. So first of all, James, give us a definition, what exactly is political correctness. Okay. So in simple terms, think of it as a way of using English that tries its best to avoid offending other people. 就是尽量不要冒犯别人的这种用词. So the original goal of this is try to be polite, not to offend. Right? It's kind of a combination of that. So it's about things like to avoid generalization or grouping people together or assuming things about others. It's even if it's talking about positive stereotypes. So if we take like a very common positive stereotype, like Asians are good at math that is not technically politically correct. Because it's a stereotype. That's a stereotype and a generalization, even though it's considered a positive stereotype, it's still not politically correct. It's about avoiding implying anything based on somebody's gender, race, nationality and so on. I see. When did this whole PC trend start? That's really kind of difficult to point down, but generally it got kind of big in the late 80s and 90s, and it's really big now. Yeah, and it's just constantly evolving as well. I think is it fair to say even for native speakers, even for Americans, not everyone's fully aware of all the PC terms that you should be using. This is quite complex, partially because the PC terms do change from time to time. I mean it's hard to keep up with what is or is not. Okay. Also, there is no agreement completely of what is or is not okay, because it's about not offending others. If you think about it, is it ever really possible to avoid not offending everybody? 搜索【璐璐的英文小酒馆】查看全文稿和其他精彩内容哦~

The Americans don't have vitality, personality, or youth. “One For My Baby” sung by Bette Midler as the final act for Johnny Carson's “The Tonight Show” on American TV. “Sausage” = “sausage and mash” = Cockney rhyming slang = “cash”.

Phil Rosenthal was the creator, writer, and executive producer of the sitcom Everybody Loves Raymond - a show loved across the world, and synonymous of a golden age in American TV comedy. Today he's the star in something with a different flavour completely – a food-travel series called Somebody Feed Phil. But his journey to both of these gigs, was longwinded and roundabout, with a few breakdowns and terrible "grey meat" suppers along the way. Speaking with Tom and Fran, Phil shares a hilarious look back at his own life and loves (mostly food), a life-changing partnership with Ray Romano, and finding the funny in everyday interactions.

Writer and director Armando Iannucci reveals the most important artistic influences and experiences that have shaped his own work. Armando was the creative force behind Radio 4's news satire series On The Hour, which moved to television as The Day Today and launched the career of Alan Partridge. He wrote and directed the political comedy series The Thick Of It, and the long-running American TV series Veep. His big screen credits include In The Loop, The Death Of Stalin and The Personal History Of David Copperfield. Armando recalls his Italian-Scottish family upbringing in Glasgow, where his lifelong love of classical music was first forged in Hillhead Public Library. A fan of radio comedy from a young age, he talks about the impact of hearing the 1978 radio comedy The Hitchhikers Guide To the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, whose central character Arthur Dent is, like many of Iannucci's own comic creations, a man way out of his depth as events spin out of control. The 2003 invasion of Iraq is chosen by Armando as an event that had a big influence on his decision to create political satires The Thick Of It and its big screen spin-off In The Loop, in which government ministers and their advisors struggle to navigate a political path littered with inconvenient facts and rules. Reflecting on his work as a director, Armando Iannucci cites the American filmmaker Sidney Lumet as another major inspiration, with movies including Network, Dog Day Afternoon, Twelve Angry Men and The Verdict.

This episode will absolutely BLOW. YOUR. MIND! This week's guest describes Reverse Speech as another form of human communication. He states that language is bi-level, forward and reverse. As our brains construct the sounds of speech, it actually forms those sounds in such a way that two messages are delivered at the same time, totally unbeknownst to us. One forwards, which is the conscious mind speaking, and the other in reverse, which is the unconscious mind speaking. But what are these messages really? How they were discovered, where do they come from, and what, if anything, are these reverse messages trying to tell us? If you listen to just one episode of the show, this is the one you don't want to miss!5/25/2022The Skeptic MetaphysicianReverse Speech - Messages from your Higher Self"We all know that still small voice within. We hear it ourselves sometimes. And what I'm saying is nothing new. I'm not saying anything we don't already know. We know that voice is there, but what I am saying is that now we can hear it consciously. We can actually tap into that inner spiritual self and wow. It's just incredible."-- David Oates Some topic covered:-       What is reverse speech-       Are reverse speech messages really satanic?-       Are we communicating with each other subconsciously-       What messages can be found in political figures' speeches?-       How police are using reverse speech to help solve crimes-       Examples of times that these messages that have revealed premonitions-       Messages have also been discovered in the speech of babies before they can speak-       Why is this not more mainstream already?And the audio samples he plays on the show are worth listening to just on their own! Truly, not one to be missed!About our Guest:David is the fonder of Reverse Speech.com and has been finding backwards messages for over 40 years. He has appeared on numerous Australian and American TV shows including:Today TonightThe Today Show Larry King LiveThe Weekend AustralianThe New IdeaOfficials in Washington DC expressed interest in his work, but this abruptly ceased when he uncovered a Desert Storm code word embedded backwards into George Bush's speeches. A secret memo sent to Defense Secretary Dick Cheney was leaked to the press and the story hit international headlines. 1996 he became a regular guest on the nationally syndicated Art Bell radio show. This lead to further media coverage such as Extra TV and Strange Universe.
