This week’s Awful & Awesome has our hosts reviewing Rajnikanth-starrer Kaala and Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom. Rajyasree talks about the Netflix series, The Staircase, which is a documentary on a murder investigation spanning 16 years. Abhinandan has some thoughts to share about the latest World Cup anthem. Rajyasree also discusses, “ABC sticking their neck out” for Priyanka Chopra in the latest Quantico controversy. Abhinandan seems to be a little late to the Veere De Wedding party but can't resist sharing his views on it. He says, “I enjoyed it. I didn’t think it was great and I didn’t get knocked out." He mentions the weakness of the film being that “it's made by a guy, so it is his kind of view” about women. He adds, “While it set out to be Dil Chahta Hai, it ended up being Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara." Getting to the films, Rajyasree states, “This is the first Rajinikanth film I have watched...it was surprisingly understated." Abhinandan sheds light on the plot of the film and says, "There is a character Kaala, who is the head of a slum, Dharavi, the largest slum...and his battle against a powerful politician/ builder." Rajyasree lauds the director for his explicit politics portrayed in the film. Abhinandan agrees that it is a “very brave film to make”. Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is next on the list. Abhinandan is definitely unimpressed. He calls it a “really crappy film” that “sucked like a vacuum cleaner”. Abhinandan talks about the Jurassic Park concept that moulded itself into a movie in 1993 and how the portrayal of the same thing has worn out the content and the audience. He adds, “Now its just a money-making thing." The suicide of chef Anthony Bourdain has left both Rajyasree and Abhinandan stunned. Abhinandan talks about Bourdain's life on the road and the possibilities of that contributing to his depression. He adds, "(It is) lonely being on the road." Rajyasree informs us that “he had referred to his depression” in an interview before. She mentions, “He was a very intense man.” The release of the new World Cup anthem, ‘Live it up’ sung by Nicky Jam, Will Smith and Era Istrefi hasn't impressed Abhinandan much. Rajyasree says, “I only remember Shakira and Ricky Martin had sung one." Abhinandan informs, “World Cup anthems, there is no system for them to be chosen." He also adds, “If your song gets picked, the whole fucking world knows you." Rajyasree fangirls over Will Smith. She also talks about ‘Soccer Aid’ started by Robbie Williams in 2006 through which “they raise money for UNICEF…these players play for free”. Abhinandan says, “Football does so much good in the world”. Netflix series, The Staircase has got Rajyasree raving over how good it is! According to her, the documentary “has been shot over 16 years….first 8 episodes were originally aired in 2004”. Like other murder mysteries, this also doesn't really have a conclusion” but it is “spectacular the way they follow the family and the case, Rajyasree says. Abhinandan talks about the nature of documentaries and what adds to their credibility.
Listen to the Trumpet Daily radio program that aired on June 13, 2018. On my recent trip to Jerusalem I was able to again sit down with archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar for an interview. We talked about the exciting developments of 2018, including her recent excavation on the Ophel, the spectacular finds that made front-page news, and the grand opening of the new exhibition in Armstrong Auditorium: “Seals of Isaiah and King Hezekiah Discovered.”
Ze schudden elkaar de hand, Kim Jong-Un en Donald Trump. Een dictator en een democratisch verkozen president. Hoe is het mogelijk?! In de zomer van 2017 legde Remco Breuker (hoogleraar Korea-studies in Leiden) al uit dat beide mannen bij een topontmoeting óf slaande ruzie zouden krijgen óf als vrienden voor het leven uit elkaar zouden gaan. En waarom? Omdat ze veel meer met elkaar gemeen hebben dan je zou denken. Een goed gesprek, opnieuw relevant!
U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met for a historic summit yesterday. Will this lead to peace on the Korean Peninsula? We’ll talk about the reasons for optimism and how this could fulfill an important biblical prophecy. Why are businesses taking sides on political and social issues totally unrelated to their business—regarding gun rights, race, homosexuality, transgenderism—and what effect is this having on America economically and socially? Killing children is wrong, isn’t it? Well, according to some people, the answer isn’t so simple if you’re talking about indigenous Amazon tribes. This is a story of moral relativism run amok. We’ll conclude with some thoughts on whether you are bearing fruit in your life.

On this week's podcast, Clifford Coonan reports from Singapore where US president Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un met in a historic summit today. Comparisons have been drawn with president Richard Nixon’s 1972 trip to China to reopen relations with Chairman Mao Zedong. But with a good deal of vagueness in the wording and nothing concrete on denuclearisation plans, the day was largely symbolic with much left to be done. In the second part of the show, nine months after many of them were driven from their homes in Rakhine State, the one million-strong Rohingya community in Bangladesh faces a defining period. A repatriation deal providing for them to return to their homes has been signed, but not delivered upon. Now, the approaching cyclone season poses a major threat to vulnerable refugee camps. Irish times deputy foreign editor David McKechnie and video producer Kathleen Harris have just returned from a trip to Bangladesh with Concern. They speak about the conditions on the ground.
Adam and special guest co-host Anna Valenzuela discuss the so far underreported details about the Alice Marie Johnson case, and an immigration case that could also use some celebrity intervention. Soundcloud users click here to download: https://bit.ly/2HCznLw
