While the Marvel Cinematic Universe's latest outing has enough outsized star power to go around, one of its sharpest casting decisions had zilch to do with that. For the voice-only role of Arishem the Judge, the Celestial who shepherds the Eternals and sends them on the mission that opens the film, director Chloé Zhao and casting directors Sarah Finn and Anna Tenney made the eminently commendable decision to hire an actual voice actor. And, while this actor may not be as much of a household name as his fellow castmates, he's certainly a superstar in his own field. David Kaye. He's one of the few performers to have played both Optimus Prime and Megatron in some of the Transformers animated shows, while he also lent his voice to both Professor X and Apocalypse in X-Men: Evolution. He's played several more Marvel characters in the past, as well as Clank in the Ratchet & Clank games. He also serves as the announcer for Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/followingfilms/support

Ep 159 | Tim Chng Documents the Overseas Taiwan Independence Movement on Wikipedia

A note from Talking Taiwan host Felicia Lin:   Tim Chng is one of the founders of ITASA (Intercollegiate Taiwanese American Students Association), and we've known each other since those college days. He is currently documenting the overseas Taiwan Independence Movement on Wikipedia.   I thought I'd invite him onto Talking Taiwan to talk about some of the media attention that Taiwan's been getting lately, and the project he's started to document the contributions of WUFI (World United Formosans for Independence) and overseas Taiwanese to the fight for Taiwan's freedom and democracy.   After a non-Taiwanese friend of mine texted me asking about who Enes Kanter was and why he was speaking up about Taiwan, I realized that it would be a good idea to do an episode about this and other celebrities who have shed light on Taiwan- for good and bad.   Enes Kanter, a basketball player for the NBA's Boston Celtics, has called for boycotting the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and caused quite a stir by tweeting and speaking out about Taiwan being a free and democratic country, and not a part of China. Twitter was all abuzz over this.   I had seen Tim weighing in on the Twitter discussion about Enes, so I thought it would be fun to invite him on to Talking Taiwan to share his thoughts on all of this.   I knew that we'd have an interesting conversation. We talked about Enes, John Oliver, John Cena and even Peng Shui, the Chinese women's tennis player whose safety and whereabouts have been in question ever since her post on a Chinese social media platform (Weibo) about being sexually assaulted by a retired Chinese Communist party leader was deleted.   Tim also talked about what motivated him to start documenting the Taiwan independence movement on Wikipedia, and how in a broader sense it is about recognizing the role of Taiwan's diaspora in the fight for Taiwan's freedom and democracy during the White Terror era.   If you're interested in helping Tim with this project you can do so simply by creating a login on Wikipedia, which as Tim said is really quite easy to do, and you can start editing and adding to the Wikipedia pages about WUFI or the Taiwan independence movement.     Here's a little preview of what we talked about in this podcast episode:   The background of Enes Kanter NBA's Celtics team, has spoken up for Taiwan How Enes Kanter and his family has been blacklisted by the Turkish government How Enes' father went to prison for speaking up against Turkey's president, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan Taiwan's blacklist Comparing the struggles and conflict that the Uyghers, and people of Hong Kong, Tibet and Taiwan's have with China Badiucao, the artist who created the art and designs for Enes Kanter's sneakers that called for a boycott of the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics and the Stand With Taiwan sneakers The perception that Taiwan's democracy was a direct result of Chiang Ching-kuo lifting martial law in Taiwan How the father (Dr. Kang-lu Wang) of one of ITASA's founders (Alvin Wang) was assassinated by the Kuomintang (KMT) What led Tim to start his project to document the Taiwan independence movement, especially the resistance movement amongst overseas Taiwanese How the resistance movement of overseas Taiwanese in the 1950s-1980s is not taught in history books and hasn't been well documented Documenting WUFI (World United Formosans for Independence) on Wikipedia How difficult it was to get media coverage on Taiwan in the 1950s-1980s How New Bloom was contacted and consulted by John Oliver's team for his segment about Taiwan How Taiwan needs allies and support as it stands up to China What is problematic about what Enes Kanter is saying about China Tsai Ing-wen's public statement thanking Enes Kanter for his support Whether or not the U.S. really cares about Taiwan's self-determination or freedom The KMT's network of overseas student spies during the martial law era How organizers of the first ITASA conference at Yale University received an anonymous intimidating letter How no one from Yale University was able to attend the Love Boat program in the year following the Yale ITASA conference How Tim and his family were blacklisted and not allowed to return to Taiwan What inspired many WUFI members and overseas Taiwan independence activists to stand up for Taiwan and to attempt to free Taiwan from authoritarian rule How Peter Huang who attempted to assassinate Chiang Ching-kuo was a WUFI member How many overseas Taiwanese students were inspired by the Cuban revolution How within WUFI there were members who were KMT spies The founding of WUFI in 1971 and how it united organizations in Japan, Europe, the United States, and Canada How WUFI members were responsible much of the U.S. media coverage on Taiwan The Taiwanese American Association of America (TAA), the grassroots arm of WUFI Fundraising efforts for the Taiwanese political drama Island Nation 2 What motivated Chiang Ching-kuo to lift martial law in Taiwan Tim's criticism of John Oliver's segment on Taiwan John Oliver's criticism of John Cena, the pro wrestler and actor who apologized to China after calling Taiwan a country What happened to Chinese tennis player Peng Shuai and what may have motivated her to speak about how she was sexually assaulted by Zhang Gaoli, a former high-ranking government official and member of the Chinese Communist Party The support that Peng Shuai has gotten from other professional tennis players The Women's Tennis Association's (WTA) reaction to Peng Shuai's statement about being sexually assaulted and her subsequent disappearance The pressure by the WTA and countries like Finland to cancel on the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics Myanmar and the Free Burma movement China's Belt and Road Initiative Lithuania's support of Taiwan Tim's call for others to help contribute his Wikipedia project documenting the contributions of overseas Taiwanese (from all over the globe) to Taiwan's democratization and independence movement WUFI's 2021 paper calendar commemorating WUFI's 50thanniversary How Professor Chen Wen-chen was part of the WUFI network The Taiwan History Facebook group The importance of documenting the stories of Taiwan's diaspora who fought for Taiwan's freedom and democracy     Related Links: To view all

Chris, Zack, and Melanie get together to talk about ongoing developments in the Arctic. Climate change is causing flooding and environmental damage, but it is also providing new opportunities for navigation, mining, fishing, tourism, and defense. How can America's national security and economic interests best be protected in the face of increasing Russian and Chinese activity there? How should we prioritize the region when we have other critical threats to address? Have we and our partners that border the Arctic missed chances for influence there that we cannot recover? Is it possible for the United States to strengthen its position there without appearing to encourage an arms race? Chris wishes we could consider the merits of arguments instead of personally attacking those making them, Zack condemns the Chinese government's treatment of Olympian Peng Shuai, and Melanie looks at the hypocrisy of governors who claim to support free markets but want to prohibit businesses from imposing vaccine mandates.

Tristan Snell is the former Assistant Attorney General for New York, and successfully prosecuted Trump University which lead  to a $25 million settlement; the largest settlement against the Trump family.  They talk about the similarities between this case and the existing civil and criminal cases brought forth by New York AG, Letitia James, as well as the status of the January 6th commission investigation and how that might play out. Article referenced in the show:Unpacking the Civil Case That May Destroy the Trump Organization: https://www.smerconish.com/exclusive-content/unpacking-the-civil-case-that-may-destroy-the-trump-organizationProsecution of Trump University: https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2021/07/03/trump-weisselberg-indictment-documents/New Jan. 6th Subpoenas: https://www.npr.org/2021/11/08/1053632748/jan-6-committee-subpoenas-trump-officials-michael-flynnNew York Prosecutions: https://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/trump-still-faces-a-reckoning-in-new-yorkGuest Bio:Tristan's work includes successes in some of the most high-profile legal matters of the century – including the prosecution of Trump University (leading to a $25 million settlement), the Broadcom v. Qualcomm patent litigation (the largest in US history at the time, with a $1.2 billion victory for Broadcom), and landmark deals with Chase, Wells Fargo, and Walmart, among others.He has also started three businesses and served as a startup Product Manager, General Counsel, COO, and CEO, and he has represented dozens of startups and small to medium sized businesses, as well as early-stage venture funds, giving him a deep understanding of the special challenges facing high-growth businesses.Tristan graduated from Princeton University, where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, then received his law degree from the University of Virginia, where he was an editor of the Virginia Law Review.  He later worked in the renowned intellectual property, appellate, and venture practices at WilmerHale, where he also worked on the Boumediene v. Bush team that won the first habeas writs for detainees at Guantanamo Bay.  He served as a law clerk to the Hon. Eric N. Vitaliano, U.S. District Court Judge for the Eastern District of New York, and as Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York as a civil prosecutor and investigator in consumer protection.Tristan has appeared as a commentator on CNN and Cheddar, and as a contributing writer for CNN and the Washington Post.  His work as a lawyer and founder has been featured in a wide array of media outlets, from the New Yorker to the Atlantic to Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.LinkedIn Profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/tristansnell/Law firm: https://www.mainstreet.lawTwitter: @TristanSnellSupport the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/faithpolitics)

The latest episode of "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver" doesn't pull any punches on the role of Pacific Gas & Electric in 2018's deadly Camp Fire in Butte County. The extended segment on power grids discusses everything from Nikola Tesla to the potential of wind power to the logistical nightmare of extending power lines across the country, but perhaps the most damning criticism of our power system is aimed at the California energy provider. Oliver asserts that one of the biggest issues with our current power grid is the old age of existing infrastructure. He states that most power lines were built in the 1950s and 60s and have a 50-year life expectancy. Combined with climate change causing more extreme weather events, these aging lines pose a dire threat, Oliver says. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On Tuesday's Mark Levin Show, Democrats want to tax Billionaires but they're actually attacking the 'middle class' by changing the Social Security program to be based on a who's who criteria of the left's choosing. The American Marxist's job is never done as President Biden aims to tax unrealized gains on yachts, paintings, stocks, etc. that haven't even been sold yet. This proposal might be antithetical to the spirit of the 16th Amendment which only permits taxation on income, not the unrealized earnings of one's assets. Then, the maker of an educational curriculum is now forbidding parents to see CRT-inspired curriculum but to not share it with anyone. This is an attempt to silence parents and stop them from sharing racist curriculum with other parents or the media. This violates most states FOIA laws. Later, journalists and educators have become propagandists that will have you believe everything they spew is the truth. Meanwhile, all they're doing is promoting tribalism. Afterward, John Oliver erroneously claims that police criticize perpetrators for non-compliance attempting to entrap them into complying with a vaccine mandate. Learn more about your ad choices.

Today we're joined by one of my past professors, Dr. Jamie Dewitt, a toxicologist who has a focus on a particular group of environmental contaminants called PFAS. Consisting of more than 5,000 substances, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are found in all kinds of commercial products, including nonstick cookware, waterproof jackets, firefighting foams, food packaging, and more. However, studies have shown that PFAS is considered a "forever chemical" meaning it can take thousands of years to breakdown. This can cause it to buildup in the body, and there are studies that show that these substances are associated with reproductive harm, developmental effects, increased risk of certain cancers, and decreased immune function. Dr. DeWitt's research focuses on studying the effects of PFAS on the immune system. Dr. DeWitt also has extensive experience in increasing public awareness about PFAS. She's testified to Congress multiple times, and she even provided guidance in the creation of the PFAS episode of the John Oliver's Last Week Tonight. Dr. DeWitt truly is an expert in the field, and she talks about the fascinating history of PFAS, what it's like to testify in front of Congress as a scientist, and what we can do on an individual level to address PFAS contamination.

On this edition of Parallax Views, the late night Fox News talk show Gutfeld! w/ right-wing comedian Greg Gutfeld recently managed to beat out its liberal competitor The Late Show w/ Stephen Colbert in ratings. For liberals and leftists, Gutfeld's "Owning the Libs" brand of humor may not be funny. But it has found an audience. He's not alone either, as similarly-styled comics like Steven Crowder have likewise gained an audience through offending liberal sensibilities. And then there's big name comedians like Dave Chappelle and Joe Rogan, who, although not necessarily explicitly right wing, have in recent years garnered by fierce critics and devoted fans by offending those aforementioned sensibilities. Such developments are a far-cry from a decade or so ago when many were touting psychological studies indicating that liberals liked to laugh whereas conservatives preferred to be outraged as a reason for why the political right hadn't produced its own version of The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, or John Oliver. As the growing popularity of Gutfeld! shows, however, that seems to have changed. Joining us to discuss the rise of right-wing comedy is Nick Marx, Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies at Colorado State University, and co-author (w/ Matt Sienkiewicz) of the upcoming book That's Not Funny: How the Right Makes Comedy Work for Them and the recent article "How conservative comic Greg Gutfeld overtook Stephen Colbert in ratings to become the most popular late-night TV host". In this conversation we delve into what Nick calls the right-wing comedy complex, how comedians like Tim Allen and Dennis Miller fit into it, the role audience fragmentation has played in the rise of explicitly right-wing comedy in the 21st century, why trying to argue that what comics like Greg Gutfeld are doing is "not comedy" does not stop the right-wing comedy complex, how the right-wing comedy complex papers over over factional divisions within the American conservative movement and unifies unifies them, right-wing comedy as a recruitment tool, troll and trolling culture, addressing psychological studies about liberalism and laughter, the changing nature of the media landscape and triumph of specialized niche entertainment, what has changed about the political comedy format in the past 20 years and the size of the audiences shows within that format could capture?, demographics (age, race, income levels, etc.) and the audience of right-wing comedy, "paleo-comedy", the figures within deeper recesses of the right-wing comedy complex like Gavin McInnes and Michael Malice, and more.

Content Warning: This episode contains graphic content.  Welcome back to the hottest podcast in America, literally.  “I'm just not sure everyone is even aware that it's a problem. You and I know it. A handful of people know it. But the vast majority of firefighters are clueless that their gear is a threat.” That's a warning. A warning to us all that is being sounded by Jim Burneka (@jimburneka). A warning we can't afford to ignore. It's a subject we covered last week with Diane Cotter (@_diane_cotter) of Worcester, Massachusetts and it's a subject we are going to continue to cover until the problem is solved. And this problem is a massive problem. So massive in fact that the great John Oliver covered it this week on his show. PFAs are in everything. And the research is starting to back up what Firefighters and others have been saying all along. The chemicals are bad, firefighters are getting sick and dying, and we need to be aware and minimize exposure at every possible opportunity. And most importantly, pay attention to the signs. You'll hear why when Jim breaks down how he found out he got sick. It's as serious as it gets.  But you're not alone in this. We've got your back. If you're one of America's Firefighters, a first responder, or the family or a friend of one... this is your new home.  Are you a firefighter that has a great story to share?

Discount Mall is Heart of Little Village But Its Future is Uncertain

Ever since the Little Village Discount Mall property was sold last year, vendors and neighbors have been demanding answers about its future. The mall anchors the 26th Street business corridor, which was once dubbed the city's “Second Magnificent Mile” as the second-highest revenue generator in the city. More than 100 small business owners call the Discount Mall home, and they attract Mexican and Mexican-American visitors from Chicago, the suburbs, and beyond. The property was purchased by a construction company known for developing big box stores. That reputation and a lack of communication has vendors worried about the future of the mall and of the neighborhood. Host Jacoby Cochran talks to a reporter who covered the sale and grew up going to the Discount Mall and the owner of a dress shop in the mall.
