CONTENT WARNING: This episode features discussion of child abuse.   Film changed forever in the summer of 1993. Jurassic Park showed the way of the future. The Last Action Hero was the final gasp of the 80s action film. And Tom Cruise starred in the first of what would be a wave of major 90s films, breaking in the John Grisham legal thriller with The Firm. And for this film, composer Dave Grusin did something almost unheard of: a score composed and performed almost entirely on one instrument: the piano. For Emily St. James (Vox, Arden), the combination was unforgettable, inspiring - and also tied to difficulties with her family. Join Chris and Emily as they discuss the film, the summer of 1993, the career of Wilford Brimley, and much, much more.

A podcast to answer all your questions about productivity, time management, self-development and goal planning. My name is Carl Pullein, and I am your host for this show. I have a confession to make. I cyber stalk very productive people. In particular, I stalk authors who publish books every year without fail, content creators who never fail to publish a podcast, blog post or YouTube video every week (or more frequently in some cases) and business leaders who manage multinational companies and still have a private life.  I've also had an interest in the people in the companies I've worked with who were the top managers or salespeople.  I am fascinated with how they do it. How are they so productive with the work they do?  The truth is, they all share something in common and this week's question relates to this commonality.  So, without further ado, let me hand you over to the Mystery Podcast Voice for this week's question. This week's question comes from Martine. Martine asks: Hi Carl, you've mentioned in a few of your blog posts and videos that you get a lot of inspiration from highly productive people. What I want to know is, are there any special habits or tricks these people use that most people don't? Hi Martine, Thank you for your question.  You are right; there are a few tricks these people follow that the vast majority don't. I suspect that the reason most people don't follow these tricks are multifaceted, and they are not easy to follow.  First, there is an inherent human characteristic that will always prevent you from becoming more productive, and that is the need to be liked. We have this need to some degree or another.  The so-called “culture wars” are a great example of this. People are queuing up to be a part of their chosen tribe, and social media has given them a voice. They want to be liked by their tribe so much, that they will say increasingly wild things.  Left or right, there seems to be a rush to be the most outraged because someone had the audacity to disagree with something their tribe believes “passionately” about.  Yet, what makes humans so great is our diverse opinions. It's fascinating to learn why someone believes the things they do. Learning about those beliefs and thoughts behind those beliefs has helped the human race to progress at an incredible speed.  However, this desire to be liked means we will sacrifice our dreams and goals and the things that are important to us, so we can be a part of the crowd.  I saw this a lot when I first arrived in Korea twenty years ago. I was told that family was very important to Korean people. Yet, when I arrived here, I discovered that the majority of married office workers thought nothing about staying late in the office because their boss and co-workers were staying.  Nobody would leave the office until the boss left. It caused me to stop and question how could their family be so important when they put being in the office until 10 or 11pm as a higher importance than getting home to be with their family.  Over time I was educated. These office workers (mainly men in those days), felt that earning their salary and getting promoted and ultimately getting more money was their way of taking care of their family. Nobody questioned this thinking back then.  Now, I should caveat this. This is generally no longer the case. The younger generations who have now come through into the workforce don't do this in most cases. But in some small to medium-sized companies, that sentiment is still living and breathing. It was another example of being a part of the tribe. The time was an extension of their family.  Now the most productive people I've met do not subscribe to this mentality. They are driven, focused and know precisely what they want out of the day.  A few months back, I watched an interview with Sylvester Stallone. While most of us see Sylvester Stallone as an action hero actor, he's also a prolific writer.  Every day, he's working on writing a script.  The thing that stood out for me about him was each day, he will spend four hours writing—with his phone switched off, and he'll spend ninety minutes to two hours exercising. That six hours a day is taken up with the things he loves doing.  After that, he'll eat with his family and socialise. But nothing gets in the way of the two things that are important to him.  John Grisham, the author, writes every day. He wakes up early, goes to his writing room and will spend the next four hours writing. Once again, no phone, no interruptions. From 6:30am to 11:00am nobody can reach him. He's working on his next novel. As he gets closer to finishing the book, he wakes up earlier and earlier, often beginning his writing at 4am.  Stephen King, another great author, does something similar. He writes for a set period of time each day.  Now, when you analyse this, there's nothing difficult about it. They know what they want to do, and they get on and do it.  I recently finished learning about Charles Darwin. He also had a set routine. He'd wake up early, go into his study, and for the next four to five hours, he would research and write. Nobody was allowed to disturb him.  Now for most of us, we may not have the luxury to spend our days doing the things we love in the same way Sylvester Stallone, John Grisham, Stephen King and Charles Darwin have been able to do. But, that misses the point somewhat.  What these amazingly productive people know is that if you want to produce work that you are proud of, you need to spend time each day working on it. No excuses. Thinking, planning and dreaming produce nothing concrete. It's only by committing time each day to working on your craft that you will become incredibly productive. There is no other way. Now for the majority of us, not answering a colleague's email message within a few minutes or instantly responding to a text message would be unthinkable. I mean, what would you colleague or friend think of you if you didn't reply instantly?  Then there are those people who believe their purpose in life is to wait around for the next contact by a client and to be instantly available for them—I mean, isn't that excellent customer service?  Well, perhaps not. You see if you are constantly being interrupted, how will you ever be able to deliver the real service your client wants? Your client wants results—however, they interpret that—I mean, how many people say oh customer service is excellent, they answer the phone immediately?  Answering the phone immediately is not great service. Great service is delivering outstanding results for the client. If the client needs to wait an hour or two while you finish delivering real customer service to another client, they are not going to complain. They will have the confidence that you will deliver the same level of outstanding service for them.  It always amazes me that people with degrees, PH.Ds and MBAs see outstanding work as being measured by how fast you respond to an email or message.  No, that's not outstanding service. That's wanting to be liked by the tribe.  The first step to becoming more productive is to know, at a task level, what is important to you professionally and personally. It's no good being one dimensionally productive—that is being productive at work and Never working on your own personal projects. It's about knowing what's important.  That could be supporting your kids in developing their sporting abilities by taking them to practice two or three times a week and being present—not sitting in your car responding to emails. Or it could mean taking your partner out once or twice a week to do something new. You know, being present with them and not doing it out of a sense of obligation. Doing it because you want to spend time with them.  It could be about dedicating Saturday to doing odd jobs around your home. Planning the week ahead and getting some fresh air. That's being personally productive.  When it comes to your work, this means knowing what your core work is. It's just like Sylvester Stallone knows his core work is to develop scripts and stay in good shape so he can continue to act. He knows he needs time each day for this work. There can be no excuses. If he does not do this core work, the work will ultimately dry up.  That same principle applies to you too. I know you are not Sylvester Stallone, or John Grisham or Stephen King, but you do still have core work. What is it? Make sure that however much time you need for this work, you protect that time. Allow no interruptions while you are doing it. After all, it's what you are paid to do.  This means, when a colleague, a client or even your boss is messaging you, you don't allow it to interrupt you. They have to wait. We are not ignoring them. We just know our priorities, and whatever your core work is, you get that done, then you attend to your messages and calls.  When I was teaching, I always made sure my phone was off. I was employed to teach. My boss could wait until I finished the class. Teaching my classes was my core work. It would have been wrong for me to stop my class while I took a call from my boss. It's equally wrong for you to allow any interruptions while you are doing your core work.  Attending to your core work is not going to take you long. You could break things up. For instance, writing a blog post takes me around an hour. After I finish writing, I will respond to messages and process my email inbox. Then I get back into my next core task—planning this week's YouTube videos or writing this script. What are we talking about here? Two hours tops before you need a break. Use those breaks to respond to your messages.  It might not make you the most popular person in your company, but you were not employed to be the most popular person. You were employed to do a job. Do that job first. You will always be judged on your results. Not by how nice everyone says you are.  The number of people I've worked with who lost their jobs and couldn't understand why is countless. The usual cries of but I was always helping my boss and colleagues with their work. How could they fire me? Well, while you were helping all those other people, you were not doing the job you were employed to do.  So there you go, Martine, that's the secret. Be selfishly obsessed with getting your core work done to highest possible standard. It won't make you popular, but it will get you results.  And also never neglecting the important people in your life. Your work is one thing; your personal life is what stays with you. Make sure you are spending an adequate amount of time with the people that matter most to you. Thank you for your question, and thank you to you too for listening. It just remains for me to wish you all a very, very productive week.

Sarah Vine and Co Host Imogen Edwards-Jones celebrate the beginning of holiday season with a summer book special. Arts reviewer Claire Allfree and true crime expert and host of the Blood Ties Podcast, Geoffrey Wansell, join the show to offer some literary suggestions to accompany you on your summer break, from well known classics, to audiobooks, to last minute selections at the airport and lots more between!  The guest recommendations/books discussed  were:  Geoffrey Wansell:  Sparring Partners by John Grisham, Hodder £20 These three novellas in a single volume show Grisham at his masterful best. A minor masterpiece. The Blackbird by Tim Weaver, Michael Joseph £14.99 A road accident sees a Land Rover plunge off the road and career down a ravine. Two witnesses watch in horror as it bursts into flames, but when the fire brigade arrives there is no sign whatever of the two occupants. The impressive Weaver triumphs again with this intricate mystery. Aurora by David Koepp, HQ £14.99 The screenwriter of Jurassic Park depicts a catastrophe where a solar storm wipes out electricity across the planet. Told from the viewpoint of a dysfunctional American family, it vividly explores how human beings cope with tragedy, and re-affirms our will to survive. It is fine storytelling. Crime Wake by Shelley Burr, Hodder £14.99 My crime novel of the year so far, a moving depiction of the pain that a mysterious disappearance can wreak on those left behind. Nineteen years ago Evie McCreery vanished, leaving her younger sister Mina to pick up the pieces of her life. Intense and evocative, it tears at the heart-strings. Into the Dark, Macmillan £14.99 One morning the golden Holden family - father, mother and two teenagers – suddenly disappear from their spectacular home overlooking the sea in Essex. What happened? Enter DS Saul Anguish, with a record of protecting two children from a serial killer. The plot is both striking and original. Murder Before Evensong by Reverend Richard Coles, Weidenfeld £16.99 In the beautiful village of Champton, home to the de Flores dynasty, the local church is presided over by Canon Daniel Clement. A murder overwhelms the congregation and further skulduggery follows. A cosy, if slightly fey mystery with echoes of Father Brown unfolds as Clement investigates. The best classic crime everyone should read is either The Mysterious Affair at Styles or A Study in Scarlet. Grab something from the airport – no doubts, any David Baldacci or Michael Connelly. For something less expected – try James Lee Burke As for an audiobook it's hard not to suggest one of the two by Richard Osman, which are a great listen. (The Thursday Murder Club / The Man Who Died Twice) Claire Allfrey recommends:  Bad Relations by Cressida Connolly, a lush historical drama. What Time Is Love by Holly Williams, a breezy beach read. Gosford Park by Gil Hornby, a fun Jane Austen homage. Vladimir by Julia May Jones,  a spiky, creepy, psychological romance with lots of subversive observations on gender politics (also received Imogen's vote!) Night Crawling by Leila Mottley, this summer's hot debut read, a gritty novel about race and crime in America. The Exhibitionist by Charlotte Mendelson, a very funny smart spiky marital comedy of manners. A book to grab at the airport is Great Circle by Maggie Shipstead, or Sorrow and Bliss by Meg Mason, both out last year but Women's Prize shortlisted and so ought to be easily available in airport bookshelves.. Claire spotlighted Natalia Ginsberg, an Italian mid century author whose novels are being republished. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On paper, Michael Clayton probably seems like a taut legal thriller played to the middle-aged set, a John Grisham movie with the latest A-Listers. Tony Gilroy chose a much different path by crafting a cerebral thriller infused with corporate nihilism and existential longing. Clooney plays Clayton as a formerly charming bagman who stayed too long at the party. He is stranded and saddled with financial debt, vertiginous self-doubt, and severe moral failing. Clayton is living in what Jean-Paul Sartre would call bad faith. He must face the immediate danger all around him while also breaking free from his calcified moral will. A seemingly small film greatly amplified by Gilroy's impeccable craftsmanship and brilliant performances from Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, and George Clooney. For our chaser film, we grapple with The Hunt (2012), a Danish film detailing how hearsay can become an avalanche that can bury anyone's life. Created before cancel culture was a thing, The Hunt offers a rather intense refutation of how groups pass judgment.

On today's 70th Episode of The Thriller Zone, I'm happy to introduce you to debut author, Joey Hartstone. If you recognize his name, it may be because he is the screenwriter to the films: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4778988/?ref_=nm_knf_i4 (LBJ) and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5540992/?ref_=nm_knf_i2 (Shock & Awe), both starring https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000437/?ref_=tt_cl_t_1 (Woody Harrelson), and directed by https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001661/?ref_=tt_ov_dr (Rob Reiner). And if you're as big a geek as I am, who loves to discover the writers behind hit TV Series, then you may know him from https://www.imdb.com/title/tt5853176/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk1 (The Good Fight) (2017), and https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7440726/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk3 (Your Honor) (2020). On this month's "Discovering New Authors," I'm stoked to sit down and chat both screenwriting and novel writing, and given this is Joey's first foray into thriller novel writing, I'm especially excited to see what he's learned so far, as well as is excited to see ahead. Besides talking craft, there are more than a few names dropped on today's show; sure, like Woody Harrelson and Rob Reiner, but also other writers we both admire and are following. They include: https://markgreaneybooks.com/ (Mark Greaney), https://donbentleybooks.com/ (Don Bentley), http://www.ericpbishop.com/ (Eric Bishop), https://www.chrishauty.com/ (Chris Hauty), https://www.donwinslow.com/ (Don Winslow), https://www.deankoontz.com/ (Dean Koontz) and http://meggardiner.com/ (Meg Gardiner). It's always cool to meet people "on their way up," and while Joey is already well up the successful screenwriting ladder, this book will surely help catapult him into the arena of John Grisham lovers.

Matty McC meets Patty McG in the battle you didn't know you wanted to McSee! Look, A Time to Kill, the fourth big-studio adaptation of a John Grisham legal thriller to hit theaters in a 37-month period during the first Clinton Administration, is not a great showcase for our man Patty McG. There are just too many high-caliber, high-profile, and high-maintenance players in its stacked cast, and probably too much studio pressure for him to get away with anything weird. (Braveheart, released 14 months earlier, was a long time ago.) Company-man director Joel Schumacher seems to have saved all his creative chits for putting nipples on Batsuits in this era, turning in a serviceable but unshowy piece of work the summer in between Batman Forever and Batman and Robin. He sure does like to spray his actors with baby oil, though. The good news is that our friend Linda Holmes is back this episode, lending her quadruple-threat expertise as (in increasing order of significance) a Sandra Bullock expert, and Grisham expert, an actual-albeit-no-longer-practicing lawyer, and of course as a world-class critic to our examination of the picture.

Three thrilling stories of the law from the master of the legal thriller. Homecoming takes us back to Ford County, the fictional setting of many of John Grisham's unforgettable stories. Jake Brigance is back, but he's not in the courtroom. He's called upon to help an old friend, Mack Stafford, a former lawyer in Clanton who three years earlier became a local legend when he stole some money from his clients, divorced his wife, filed for bankruptcy, and left his family in the middle of the night, never to be heard from again. Until now. Now Mack is back and he's leaning on his old pals, Jake and Harry Rex, to help him return. His homecoming does not go as planned. In Strawberry Moon, we meet Cody Wallace, a young death row inmate only three hours away from execution. His lawyers can't save him, the courts slam the door, and the Governor says no to a last minute request for clemency. As the clock ticks down, Cody has only one final request. The Sparring Partners are the Malloy brothers, Kirk and Rusty, two successful young lawyers who inherited a once prosperous firm when its founder, their father, was sent to prison. Kirk and Rusty loathe one another, and speak to each other only when necessary. As the firm disintegrates, the fiasco falls into the lap of Diantha Bradshaw, the only person the partners trust. Can she save the Malloys, or does she take a stand for the first time and try to save herself? 350+ million copies, 45 languages, 9 blockbuster films. No one writes drama like John Grisham.

Tune in to learn about why you need more nerds and weirdos in your life.Tyson always wanted to be an attorney, but when he was younger, he didn't think it was possible. Neither one of his parents graduated from high school, and money wasn't something he had a lot of. His dad and mom both worked two jobs and taught him the value of hard work. As a mechanic, his dad knew how grueling manual labor could be, so he intentionally wouldn't let Tyson work on cars so that he wouldn't follow in his footsteps.He owes a lot to his parents, his wife, his family, and his friends for where he is today. Tyson can point to two moments in his life that led him to become a lawyer. The first may seem trivial to most, but it isn't to him. On his high school graduation day, Tyson received a book from one of his favorite teachers, Mrs. Morgan. The book? The Street Lawyer, by John Grisham. The plot of the book isn't what mattered; it was the message. Mrs. Morgan had always encouraged him to become a lawyer, and this was another nudge down that path. With the simple act of giving him that book, she was telling Tyson to follow his dream. The book is great, by the way – he still has the original she gave him.1:38 these are my nerds and weirdos4:08 I like weirdos a lot9:00 Jim's feet in socks and sandals12:00 unlock your inner weirdoWatch the podcast here.Join the Guild: www.maxlawguild.comMaxLawCon tickets are on sale now!

Mit einem entspannten "Ommmm" folgen Jan und Daniel dem Bestseller von Emmanuel Carrère auf ein Yoga-Retreat. Und Thriller-Autor John Grisham verrät, woher er seine vielen Ideen nimmt. So viel Aufmerksamkeit haben die Nasenlöcher der Hosts wohl noch nie bekommen: In der Bestsellerchallenge geht es diesmal um Vipassana-Yoga, also um das bewusste Ein- und Ausatmen. Die Entspannung findet jedoch ein jähes Ende, als Jan Daniel zu einer Yoga-Challenge herausfordert. Zu Gast ist diesmal der Thriller-Autor John Grisham. Er begrüßt die beiden Hosts von seiner Farm in Virginia. Ein idyllischer Ort, an dem aber grausame Ideen entstehen. Zum Beispiel die eines Richters, der gleichzeitig ein Serienmörder wird. Darum geht es in Grishams neuem Roman. Nach der Erfahrung des letzten Romans "Der Polizist" (nachzuhören in Folge 33) will Daniel aber vor allem eins wissen: Warum gibt es so viele Wiederholungen im Buch?

El que eligió no era el más famoso pero sí muy respetado, y estaban dispuestos a satisfacer con creces los deseos de Mitch y su esposa: un sueldo que parecía multiplicarse, un BMW y una casa que jamás habría esperado poseer. Sin embargo, en el trato se incluyeron también algunos términos inesperados: archivos intocables, micrófonos ocultos, la muerte misteriosa de algunos colegas y la evasión de varios millones de dólares. El FBI haría lo que fuese por destapar ese circuito de crimen y fraude. Y los socios del bufete también, pero por mantener a salvo sus secretos y los de sus clientes. Para Mitch, haber conseguido el trabajo de sus sueños puede suponer su peor pesadilla.© 2022, Penguin Random House Grupo Editorial, S. A.

We make a return trip to Mississippi this week as we discuss the 1996 John Grisham film, A Time To Kill.  We're joined by the multi-talented Bryndon Cook (Tick Tick...BOOM! and Starchild & The New Romantic) to talk about how a movie could pack so many white saviors into one story. We also ask if this is Samuel L. Jackson's most iconic performance, the absurdity of Matthew McConaughey's final speech, and if we can get a biopic of the Black woman who slaps the grand wizard.  Bryndon is an incredible talent. Stay up with everything they have going on by following the Twitter (@thisisbryndon) and also checking out the website and Soundcloud!   And as always you can follow us @white_pod on Twitter as well as write into us at whitepeoplewontsaveyoupod@gmail.com Send us your movie recs, your white nonsense, and whatever else you've got. Also if you'd be so kind, rate, review, and comment on the show wherever you podcast. Thanks for listening, we'll catch you again next week!

The Bros are once again joined by long time bro Ramsey Callahan. He catches up the guys on some incredible breakthroughs regarding the aging process by discussing David Sinclair's Lifespan. Kenny then uses Bleachers by John Grisham as an excuse to tell stories about a surly, but hilarious football coach that all three shared while attending Middleton High School. James opted out of reviewing a book in lieu of telling more incredible stories about the legendary Coach Larry Wright.
