Morocco catches up with Maury Povich and Connie Chung 3.8 now these days.

83-year-old Maury Povich has lots of free time to work on his golf game. It's been my therapy for the last 50 years. In March, Povich announced he's retiring from his day job.

Original episodes of longtime talkshow Amos and infamous for its out-of-control gene. You are a father at 60 past all of its usual phobias and most of all Trinity tasks, you would stop hearing in September for the public simply as as a public affairs host, a reporter and an itinerant local anchorman when his off time studying the tapes of TV news is then most trusted voice recorder versions of the dollar a person tax rebate checks good mailboxes within three months. At that point in my life the holy Grail was the anchor network news. I watch Cronkite because of course he was the man, but life on the road took its toll. I made the terrible mistake of not being with my family worried about my career that ended in a divorce.

The biggest mistake I made was putting my job for my family that was was unconscionable, unconscionable, but that was I mean the business unit that is business. That's the addiction of the business Hollywood horrible crime.

So when Murdoch offered the relative stupid host of a new kind of music show. She said yes, behind the scenes with Robert Chambers home video current affair was really influential you believe it all again. I fervently believe that the first five or six or seven years of A Current Affair changed the whole landscape of covering news on television. How so because A Current Affair became popular because of the stories that network newsrooms reporting in the trashcan. Jim and Tammy Faye Baker and all the other so-called tabloid stories and all of a sudden we were getting the ratings that network newscasts were getting CBS News. I guarantee you, does more crime than they used to. Hello everyone I know the hosting job and A Current Affair also meant he would live in the same city as his second wife, which is a perfect cube for Connie to comment.

She's not here.

Where's Connie this is Connie Chung time.

This is standard Maury Povich and Connie Chung had met in 1969 when he was a big shot at W TTG in Washington DC and she was a copy girl ever. Maury never paid attention to me. You know I would rip wire copy off the wire machines tonight had to where you pining for him, secretly seven years later in 1977. They met again on the West Coast this time Chung had top billing banana. She was a star among the hardest hit were the meals themselves.

George Harrison says he is still in shock. That's when there A Current Affair began with David for over seven years never lived together.

It was perfect for the new married 1980 484 living in two different cities right and that made it the perfect man, took a 10 years to put me on the deed, not about me about them.

You and Maureen you and Mr. Chung for almost yours are. It's just a myth.

I mean, if you take a look at it in terms of my career.

You could absolutely track that all of my success. My national success came after I married this woman, why would you say that because she settled me and she encouraged me and she was a believer in what I had to offer. As for Connie story after she went national at NBC. She moved over to CVS and in 1993, became coanchor of the CBS evening news, a first for Asian Americans and it CBS for women. The pairing didn't last but at the same time. This is a very fortuitous moment because in 1995 when she was taken off the CBS news the next day we find out that were going to adopt this little boy's is serendipity and it was really meant to be what is coming in on her status as a trailblazer what you know, one of the biggest problems I have with this young lady is that the she doesn't recognize what she's done and she's just beginning to because she gets now a lot of inquiries from young Asian journalists.

In fact, there's this whole crowd of Asian American women named Connie because of her right yes some of them my name. Actually, Connie Chung and then something less that make you feel flabbergasted.

Honestly today, the couple splits their time between New York, Florida, and Montana, where they keep watch over the Flathead beacon. The award-winning local newspaper. Povich created in 2007 when you look at each other. Now what you see… Me what you say is you know there's a little yeah I like them monkey yuppies that so I see the most beautiful woman ever online and become a friend I'm shrinking all your navel and just so I'm so sorry you have to listen and I don't know that our letter club good between us relieving him of his program. But Maury Povich and Connie Chung their show goes on high podcast.

You get your podcast Benedict Cumberbatch in the new movie Dr. strange in the multi-verse of madness behind every Marvel movie lies a multi-verse of comic books and Luke Burbank found a man whose red, all 27,000 of them since the dawn of time.

Technically, the night tail single millions of pages of comments, scenes destroyed, please have consequences in comics that are coming up. Douglas Wolk is a writer and Marvel expert patiently explained to me a non-comic book person that Marvel might be the longest running and most voluminous story told in human history and it's all connected. Meaning if the whole stubbed his toe back in 1979 Capt. America could be dealing with the consequences here in 2022. All those events are its history, its past what it can draw on for this perpetually evolving story, not just a continuous story going on for six decades, but continue story going on in many many threads at once that can cross each other at any time Marvel started publishing comics in the 1930s, but according to walk.

It was only in the early 1960s Stanley Steve Cho and Jack Kirby pioneered the idea of having all the characters live in the same universe. Wolk had been a fan of Marvel comics was a boy but his son, Sterling didn't start off sharing his love of as he calls it spandex violence. But then eventually he was like oh but superhero comics are complicated system like complicated systems hey dad, I like to read all the Marvel comics not in the order their published work of events happened to the characters cyclic and it's pretty tall order. So they set out on a father and son adventure tackling a seemingly impossible challenge. You just have to find a way and wander around inside it. There's lots of weird and boring and arcane and confusing parts and their beautiful and magical and fascinating parts. They found themselves jumping around from comics to come lowering page after page, issue after issue. I started thinking what would actually look like to read these half million pages of comics to read the 27,000 superhero comics that Marvel had published since 1961.

It was at this point that Douglas Wolk started to transform from mild-mannered Portland writer Dr. Marvel a.k.a. one of the on planet Earth to read all of the Marvel which is also the title of the book he wrote about the experience.

Superhero comics are stories about our world, made much bigger than life entrance into this in the enormous, endless, ongoing soap opera. It seems hard to imagine now with Marvel films regularly breaking box office records years they struggled to get their work adapted for the big screen Marvel feature movie was actually Howard the duck, that no more Mr. nice dock box office bomb so bad literally declared the worst film of the 1986 Marvel cinematic universe has come a long way since then. Churning out hit after hit, but, of course, it all started with the comics, which is where things took an interesting turn for Douglas walk on last page we see Dr. strange hanging out in his study at home and on his bookshelf is a copy of all the marbles. The book I wrote exists within the comic story I could not be happier about this, an unusual origin story but proof that there's room for everybody inside the biggest story ever told. Time to play ball with Steve Hartman watching Chloe Grimes talking smack liners row and he never did is also quite often on since the age of two.

The girl is grid, which is why the Tampa Bay rays recently invited Chloe to toss out a first pitch she threw it to a player named Brett now believes this will wasn't so much ceremony was serendipitous. What a story right. You can't not think that there is a some divine intervention.

Brett's number 35 is Chloe's favorite player. Even though he's not exactly an All-Star is not the best hitter you fell. She's got that right. This is a player comes out 20 minutes before every game to talk with. I don't almost to the point of parenting time for people in the middle of never seen a professional athlete so devoid of especially on the day Chloe walked into his you know I had the chance to meet Chloe for the first time she's bowing to her and she brought me this gives Cheryl my name on a softball and holy cow. Among those works that I do write a bracelet. Sure enough that night, not just a home run was the hardest bullet hit my majorly career. If not for the roof left the building won't be taking off bracelet anytime soon.

Although this but she got better. Brett Phillips, that smile is what baseball is all about.

I've been blessed with a platform to spread joy and love on a daily basis. Just recently, surprise, we cemented their friendship and earned himself the greatest title in professional sports most valuable precedents in the child's life. How was school commentary this morning comes from Oprah Winfrey was partnering with the Smithsonian channel to raise awareness about inequities in our healthcare system during the height of the pandemic.

Read a story about a family in Detroit. The story would not let me rest as a matter fact it haunted me. It was the story of the Fowler family. Gary Fowler worked hard his entire life 56 years old working 80 hours a week to provide for his family because that was his greatest desire to create a secure beautiful light for the people he loved, he became ill experiencing covert symptoms went to three different hospitals thanking them for help. Each hospital sent him home. Finally, he became so tired, so exhausted, he gave up, went home, sat in his favorite recliner and died there because hospitals, three of them in Detroit would not treat him. Imagine that access to lifesaving healthcare for somebody you love depended on the color of their skin, so I wonder how many other Gary filers there are in America. Research tells us there are far too many and we need to do something about this larger pandemic that COBIT has exposed racial disparities in our healthcare system that cost lives were fighting the impact of decades of mistreatment, but we can do better. So let's make the choice to be better and do better. This can be changed and we are the ones to change it, Ukraine's more we know about.

Perhaps all too well. And then there's another war far less familiar underpinning this entire conflict sets down explains special midnight service including in northeast Italy.

This priest lead his flock, Ukrainian, Russian and Eastern European immigrants through their usual Orthodox Easter traditions last weekend, but recently he's also accompanying them on a much less familiar path sparked by the war in Ukraine in March. This parish decided to split from its mother church in Moscow joining instead Stemple based Orthodox church whose leader has criticized the war in stark contrast from the head of the Russian Orthodox Church returned alive by separating from Moscow father below to meet Melanie Troup told us we were hearing to the Christian vision of the world is that school but there are roughly 100 million Russian Orthodox, the largest church within Orthodox Christianity. Their leader is patriarch O'Neill was framed Russia's invasion of Ukraine in only terms in a sermon in early March, Creel railed against the influences of the Western world.

It's excess consumption and pride parade saying of the Ukraine war were talking about human salvation.doc you is supporting the war in fact undertakes the needs and loose from Moscow agrees with his parishes split, but arterial got so close to the government. How is that us as a churchgoer, someone who is a believer know it's it's unacceptable.

The chart should be independent. I believe that the church is the main supplier of the ideology is ideology. Father cereal over the room was ordained by Creel and was his theological advisor until 2012.

This war has simple formula war equals the will of God's plus ideas and the guns was supplied by the Kremlin and the ideas come from the church and father cereal believes potencies. This war is a sacred operation, a mission from God the world from the impurity of the Western ideas and Western values. You're saying that the churches has created the ideological underpinning for the war while actually it when I was working in the most educated, I was witnessing how this ideology was emerging and I attested games that, in Soviet times priests were pushed to keep the spy service informed and it's widely believed that Camille was in the KGB, but father cereal believes could heal was never enthusiastic about it, which created friction with Boudin. That's why read a book about the marriage of convenience and managed by love what you mean, that's a marriage of convenience, not of love.

They have the right to each other because they use their skills that covers what that precipitous resources of each other. It's one for his own and those resources are fastest is another former insider Serge chap Dean who also worked for cardio. There are rough estimations that he is definitely a billing error and in fact he is one of the Putin's Aligarh's, so it is your calling the patriarch and oligarch get has financial interest in, so the key is cooperation with the state just like all the oligarchs chap Dean sees Russia's church as a state propaganda machine spreading Putin's message is the defender of conservative values against the morally corrupt West chap Dean also thinks the expansionist ambitions of Creel even exceed those of Putin. The main motivation for patriarch Carol is actually power our and influence, but because of the work he actually loses it before the war. Ukraine had many Orthodox churches loyal to Moscow. Now, hundreds of Ukrainian parishes have broken away in protest something that's not so easy to do in Russia still this priest from a parish outside Moscow says he felt compelled to speak out the responsibility of what is happening now lays on all of us bother you on board. Dean told us everyone who approved it or stayed silent when he spoke in a sermon of what he called this fratricidal conflict. He was questioned by Russian police find and warned of a criminal proceeding you're seeing people in Russia leave the church because of this need is not a visible process. They do not believe in groups. She told us, but without a doubt happening and just as this church in Udine, Italy illustrates is Boudin tries to alter political borders.
