Hi, it's Ellen Degeneres. Welcome to my podcast. We're gonna listen to some of the best moments from the show, and it's going to be hosted by four executive producers that I love happy listening. Thanks, Ellen, Ellen's, not here. Welcome to episode three of Ellen on the go. A lot of you been calling it and Ian friends. No, no one has. No one has put you. Oh, I'm Mary Connolly. I'm Ed glavin. I'm Andy lasts ner Kevin. Leman. This is fun. We've been getting a lot of good feedback from a good. My daughter. She said she liked it. All right. So here's what we're going to talk about today. US open champion. Naomi Osaka and Michael Jordan? Yep. We're gonna talk about Heidi Clem basically. Ghosting Drake's. Oh, it's unbelievable, basic. We're gonna. We're gonna talk about Kristen bell, and we're going to talk about a young man named Seth. Oh, and who will talk about more when we get there? He's kind of my hero. Yeah, Andy. Where do you wanna start by saying that you're my hero. Oh, so it doesn't make me feel bad at all bar. One of my favorite parts of the week. Yep. US open champ. Naomi Osaka came here two days after her. Unbelievable and eventful win, and it was eventful. Yeah, is it was really amazing. How did that start Mary? Well, it started with the world getting ready to watch that tennis match to see Serena Williams make history. Yes, that's that's the world was doing that. And then they also just talked about her opponent and she had to play someone in order to win and capture this title. Nobody considering that the opponent, she was playing twenty year old twenty year old twenty year old, Naomi Osaka who when you eat her previous? No one report not reported adult not really talked about, and she looked so small on the court. So small, it's so crazy. Like a like a little girl playing tennis and. On our stage. It was like, oh, she's a fricken bad ass woman. She's a, she's a professional athlete. So it's Ed glavin birthday, September, eighth on September eighth. We're watching this match. I'm watching it. I text Ellen and go just, you know, the matches on she goes, I've recorded it. I'm watching it later. Andy text me during the match. Like this is quite a match. The match ends Edwards surfing head was, you know, all the stuff goes on in the match, which I can't wait to talk to Serena Williams about when she's here because deserves to be talked about. So the match ends and we get an Email immediately from our booking department going, do we want Naomi Osaka and we all go, yes, yes, yes, yes. Expedient or six people on the tech settings. People six, five want them. Ed goes, wait. What Serena lost that hurt. My feelings said, had not seen the match and Ed having not seen the match had never heard of Naomi Osaka was like, whoa, why do we. No, we're not interested in. I don't know that we're interested in her and we all went ahead. Get out of the water. Take off your wetsuit and check this out because you're definitely going to honor. So we then have to wait until Ellen sees the match because we know she's recorded it and we don't want to spoil the ending. So we have to wait till she seen the match and then we go, do you want Naomi? And she's like, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, I can't wait, and she won on Saturday and she was in the chair with us on Tuesday. So Naomi, if you saw her post game interviews, if you saw everything, she's very reserved very kind of closed down and she, she came out and she sat down with Ellen, which she has then told us was a dream come true of hers to be on Ellen and Allan just loved honor, and Ellen just just chipped away and got her to open up. And we learned that she had a crush first of all, congratulations. You are the champion US open champ. How's that sound to you? It sounds really sounds good something you dreamed of. Yes..
