Jonathan Fraser Light is a renowned trial attorney in Ventura County, who has spent decades writing the acclaimed 1,112 page "Cultural Encyclopedia of Baseball," a compendium this incredible lens through which to view American history. For example, the Civil Right Era properly began when Brooklyn Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey offered a contract to a standout UCLA football running back and returning World War II veteran named Jackie Robinson. Rising to popularity during the Civil War, Light makes an air-tight case that baseball has etched itself on to the national psyche like nothing else. He sorts through thousands of entries about baseball's iconic status through advertising, agents, illegal substances, alcohol, superstitions, youngest and oldest players and brief bios of players, team owners, inventors, odd coincidences and fascinating facts about the American past-time. Ojai's baseball connections include prominent resident Fred Snodgrass, who after a distinguished career in baseball for the New York Giants and as a local bankers, was remembered most for a key dropped ball in the 1912 World Series. We also talked about Light's journey into the dark recesses of baseball arcana with his discovery of Lou Gehrig's will. Gaylord Perry's home run, Tom Seaver's arrogance, Tony Gwynn's weight issues, Ted Williams' splendid splintering, Moneyball and the best and worst baseball movies of all time also come in for this rollicking conversation. Also, Pete Rose's wife saying, "I wish I was second base, I'd see my husband more." Light also makes the case that the Angels' Shohei Ohtani might be the greatest baseball player of all time. We did not talk about the failed invasion of Canada during the War of 1812, the Chicago fire of 1877 or Ojai's Great Whipped Cream Shortage of 2022.

I frequently act as though I am not possessed of the Inner Eye, so as not to make others nervous.” “That explains a great deal,” said Professor McGonagall tartly.Q5 - Who sent Harry the firebolt?Chapter 12 - The PatronusHarry knew Hermione had meant well, but that didn't stop him being angry with her.PREDICTION #11 - Short lifelines for Harry's palm.Q1 - Why is Lupin always sick?“The Patronus is a kind of positive force, a projection of the very thing that the Dementor feeds upon — hope, happiness, the desire to survive — but it cannot feel despair, as real humans can, so the Dementors can't hurt it.”Q2 - Which memory would you pick to cast your Patronus?“I heard my dad,” Harry mumbled. “That's the first time I've heard him — he tried to take on Voldemort himself, to give my mum time to run for it…”“Professor Lupin?” he said. “If you knew my dad, you must've known Sirius Black as well.” Lupin turned very quickly. “What gives you that idea?” he said sharply. “Nothing — I mean, I just knew they were friends at Hogwarts, too…” Lupin's face relaxed. “Yes, I knew him,” he said shortly. “Or I thought I did.”Q3 - Do you think Lupin and Sirius Black are working together in any way?“They clamp their jaws upon the mouth of the victim and — suck out his soul.” Harry accidentally spat out a bit of butterbeer. “What — they kill —?” “Oh, no,” said Lupin. “Much worse than that. You can exist without your soul, you know, as long as your brain and heart are still working. But you'll have no sense of self anymore, no memory, no … anything. There is no chance of recovery. You'll just — exist. As an empty shell. And your soul is gone forever…lost.”Q4 - What are your thoughts on the Dementor's kiss?Harry sat stunned for a moment at the idea of someone having their soul sucked out through their mouth. But then he thought of Black. “He deserves it,” he said suddenly. “You think so?” said Lupin lightly. “Do you really think anyone deserves that?”Q5 - Do you think anyone deserves the Dementor's kiss?DRINK FOR SCABBERS!Q6 - Do you think Hermione was right to tattle about the broom?Chapter 13 - Gryffindor Versus Ravenclaw“He bit Goyle for us once!” Ron said miserably. “Remember, Harry?” “Yeah, that's true,” said Harry. “His finest hour,” said Fred.Q1 - Would you like to play Quidditch?Q2 - How incompetent is Madam Hooch?She smiled at Harry as the teams faced each other behind their captains, and he felt a slight jolt in the region of his stomach that he didn't think had anything to do with nerves.Q3 - How would you coach quidditch to make sure your team won? Are there any kind of Moneyball situations with Quidditch?Q4 - Who's side do you take in the friendship battle: Ron or Hermione?Q5 - Do you think Harry's dream meant anything?“Professor, I woke up and Sirius Black was standing over me, holding a knife!” Professor McGonagall stared at him. “Don't be ridiculous, Weasley.”Q6 - How is Sirius Black getting in the castle so easily?Chapter 14 - Snape's GrudgeQ1 - What should the procedure be after Sirius Black has been caught sneaking into Hogwarts again?Q2 - Why hadn't Sirius killed Ron and then gone to Harry?“But I gotta tell yeh, I thought you two'd value yer friend more'n broomsticks or rats. Tha's all.”Ron had to hold onto the fence to keep himself standing, he was laughing so hard.Q3 - What is the hardest you have ever laughed?“So, everyone from the Minister of Magic downwards has been trying to keep famous Harry Potter safe from Sirius Black. But famous Harry Potter is a law unto himself. Let the ordinary people worry about his safety! Famous Harry Potter goes where he wants to, with no thought for the consequences.”Q4 - Does Snape have a point about Harry here?“I told you to shut up about my dad!” Harry yelled. “I know the truth, all right? He saved your life! Dumbledore told me! You wouldn't even be here if it weren't for my dad!” Snape's sallow skin had gone the color of sour milk. “And did the Headmaster tell you the circumstances in which your father saved my life?” he whispered. “Or did he consider the details too unpleasant for precious Potter's delicate ears?”Q5 - What do you think of Snape and James Potter?Q6 - Who do you think made the Marauders Map?Your parents gave their lives to keep you alive, Harry. A poor way to repay them — by gambling their sacrifice for a bag of magic tricks.”Chapter 15 - The Quidditch Final“There'll be an appeal, though, there always is. Only I can't see any hope…nothing will have changed.” “Yeah it will,” said Ron fiercely. “You won't have to do all the work alone this time, Hermione. I'll help.” Hermione flung her arms around Ron's neck and broke down completely. Ron, looking quite terrified, patted her very awkwardly on the top of the head. Finally, Hermione drew away.Q1 - Do you think Ron and Hermione or Harry and Hermione are a better couple?Harry and Ron both made furious moves toward Malfoy, but Hermione got there first — SMACK! She had slapped Malfoy around the face with all the strength she could muster.Q2 - How do we like aggressive Hermione?“Fine!” she repeated swinging the bag over her shoulder and almost knocking Ron off his chair, “I give up! I'm leaving!” And to the whole class's amazement, Hermione strode over to the trapdoor, kicked it open, and climbed down the ladder out of sight.PREDICTION - ONE WILL LEAVE THE NUMBER FOREVER!Q3 - What do you think is the deal with Crookshanks and the grim?The Gryffindor crowd were screaming themselves hoarse — Gryffindor were sixty points in the lead, and if Harry caught the snitch now, the cup was theirs.Q4 - How bad of a seeker is Malfoy?Q5 - Do you guys like quidditch now?

Dan talks about what it was like working for the Indians at the time that the 1989 film Major League was released. As a real life friend of Oakland Athletics' executive president Billy Beane's, he also shares his thoughts on another baseball movie: Moneyball. Just how true is Moneyball to reality?   Dan also tackles some of the latest MLB news with Jack. What are Dan's thoughts on Major League Baseball shrinking the size of September active rosters from 40 to 28 players in recent years? If the Major League Baseball Players Association does represent minor league players moving forward, what does that mean? What could it entail for the future of minor league baseball?   Dan puts several of today's teams and farm systems under the microscope and shares which teams he would buy stock in moving into 2023. Dan and Jack discuss the Cubs' rebuild. Should the team be active this winter in free agency, or wait a little longer for more of the organization's young talent to reach the Major League level? Which teams are doing it right, and which teams are doing it wrong?   Later, Dan shares the story behind his incredible Christian faith. How did he come to know Jesus, and why is his faith so important to him?

YELLOW VEIL on Producing Boundary-Breaking Indie Horror [Episode 90]

Hugues Barbier, Justin Timms, and Joe Yanick are the trio behind Yellow Veil, a NY/LA-based worldwide film sales and distribution company with a focus on horror and boundary-pushing genre cinema. Their slate includes Luz, I Trapped the Devil, Blood Quantum, The Cleansing Hour, Hellbender, Depraved, Sator, and most recently, Gaspar Noe's Lvx Æterna.  In this conversation, Hugues, Justin, and Joe get into how they came together as a company, keys to successfully producing boundary-pushing indie movies, and what they look for in the movies they produce. Without further ado, please enjoy this conversation with Yellow Veil.  Here are some key takeaways from this interview.  Unanimous love is a must. As a company, the guys have different tastes, but the DNA of their slate requires a mutual love of every movie they put out. Producing movies is grueling, lengthy, complicated, and backbreaking work. If you're not all in and don't have passion to make it through the tough times, you're simply not going to pull your weight. Because of this, Hughes, Joe, and Justin all agreed that they need to all love each movie they work on as their mutual passion will motivate them to push each movie through and forward to completion.  Trust your gut. When selecting movies, Hughes, Joe, and Justin don't use any Moneyball metrics or read Hollywood Reporter headlines to see what's popular and then make films based on perceived audience interest or what's considered hot right now. Instead, they trust their gut. If they see a movie that's totally off the wall and unlike anything they've ever seen, they rely on an intangible intuitive gut feeling to tell them whether or not to pull the trigger on it. The danger of always relying on data and proven formulas is you'll ultimately make derivative movies. However, it's still important to see everything and be aware of what's popular. In the 80s, Brian Yuzna and Stuart Gordon binge-watched every single horror movie that came out in the previous two years. They didn't do it to see what was popular and then make movies based on the same things. No, instead, they wanted to see what audiences were seeing so they could deliver something completely fresh and different instead of a copycat or coattail riding film, and as a result, they came up with Reanimator. All of this comes down to gut instinct, not what's trendy.  Support first-timers. All you first-timers, listen up, Yellowveil loves working with first-time directors. They claim that there's a blissful ignorance of what you're allowed to do and not allowed to do, which makes many first films very exciting and different.  Embrace that in yourself. Don't try to make your movie fit into a box - the public needs to see your unique raw vision in a way that hasn't been tampered with. So all of you who are insecure about your lack of experience can rest assured that this insecurity could very well be your greatest strength as a director.    Thank you for listening!

The Intuitive Customer - Improve Your Customer Experience To Gain Growth

Intuition is a concept that plays a major role in decision-making for all humans. Intuition is the way we can “know” things without using our reasoning. It is based on our instincts and experiences, and our need to find patterns for things in our lives.    Unfortunately, intuition isn't always right. Knowing when intuition could be correct and when it might not be is a critical skill for any of us, particularly in business.    Robin Hogarth's book, The Myth of Experience, can help. In it, Hogarth has theories about intuition and how it forms, and in what conditions it might be more reliable than others.    In this episode, we explore the idea of intuition, how cognition affects it, and what environmental factors affect its reliability. We also share some practical advice on how you can overcome your propensity to use instinct and combine it with rational processes to get the best possible outcome for yourself and your organization.      Key Ideas to Improve your Customer Experience   We talk about intuition as a “gut feeling” or “something we know in our hearts.” However, intuition lives squarely in our brains. It is part of the two systems of cognition that we all share. One system is fast and automatic, while the other is slow and methodical. Intuition comes from the fast and automatic part, so understanding how that works will also help you understand when your intuition is serving you—or failing you.   03:48 Ryan discusses what he learned from Hogarth's book regarding where intuition comes from and how it forms. 06:31  We discuss how intuition plays a role in my Apple product obsession.  10:45  Hogarth's research indicates that there are two environments under which intuitions form, kind and wicked, which has a video that explains it well.  15:51  We discuss how you might not always know which kind of environment you are in, kind or wicked, and are often fooled; this video also explains how people get fooled and why.  23:48   Moneyball, either the book or the movie, gives us a good example on how to build upon the instinctive decisions we favor and coupling that with rational processes to ensure it isn't wrong. 25:42  We share the practical advice we can glean from this concept and apply them to your decision making and what resources you trust.   Please tell us how we are doing!

"Our fans want to win today. But our fans want to win every year," says Cardinals vice president/general manager Michael Girsch as he joins the Best Podcast in Baseball for the first time to discuss his rise to becoming the 13th GM in organization history and the expectations ownership sets for the club. Girsch, a native of Chicago, joined the Cardinals before the 2006 World Series championship season, worked his way up through the baseball operations structure, and became general manager in June 2017. He's had the position since. With St. Louis Post-Dispatch baseball writer and BPIB host Derrick Goold, Girsch offers insight into how trades are made at the deadline, how the Cardinals' pitching depth has come up lacking two years in a row, and how there's been a Hall of Famer on the field for every generation, and that's something ownership expects. Girsch also discusses his entry into baseball, finding a door that opened in the wake of Moneyball, and the surprises he found once inside the room where things really happen, and not observing from the spreadsheet of an consultant. The Best Podcast in Baseball, sponsored by Closets by Design, is a weekly production of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, StlToday.com, and Derrick Goold.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Sean Illing talks with former Google data scientist Seth Stephens-Davidowitz, author of Don't Trust Your Gut. Seth argues that the way we make decisions is wrong, outdated, and based on methods or conventional wisdom that lead us astray from getting what we want. Sean and Seth discuss the idea of using data in place of our own intuition and reason to help us through things like online dating, picking a place to live, and being a better parent. Plus, how can we trust "experience sampling" studies that rely on self-reporting, when — after all — everybody lies?

For proof of Pitt's growth as an actor, look no further than the very existence of this week's TOP 5 PITT PERFORMANCES, featuring long-time Pitt skeptic Adam's mea culpa. And for proof of the high quality of the Pitt filmography, consider that Adam and Josh share only one title between them.
