My name is rita. K i am ellen bernstein brodsky is your grandmother and is a podcast about the relationship between grandmothers and grandchildren as my mother would have said who wouldn't wanted a jewish grab. Sometimes she accidentally livestreams. Who's going to tell her up. Just hearing about this. Listen to call your grandmother. Are they all your heart. Radio app apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcast. Hello everybody that's the scientist. From simpson's i could be wrong though i don't know there's my impersonation for the day all right. You guys have been great. We'll see you next week. How's everyone doing feeling good. Well if not. I got some for you today. I've done a lot of episodes. i haven't gone counted. How many episodes we've done the wells cast but it's got to be over one hundred and then in my radio career i've done. Thousands of interviews of interviewed everybody from actors musicians to comics two chefs to authors to mediums. And everyone in between and the trick to a good interview really is figuring out a way that makes the listener. Feel like they're a part of the conversation and you can do that in a couple ways. I mean one way you can literally talk to the listener. Which is what a radio. Dj does between songs every break. You can have musician. Come on and play something. That is so touching that the listener feels moved by the piece. You can interview someone. And they can tell such an intimate story about themselves that everyone can relate and you also can do it by energy and i say that because everyone this is going back to my radio days but everyone is having day when they're listening to the radio especially when i had my morning show. It was a hard show to do because everyone felt like crap because it seven in the morning. You're driving some terrible nine to five that you don't wanna do you gotta deal with their crap boss and karen from accounting and you're trying to get people to feel good before they have to feel bad and so you've gotta come with solid energy and you never know what you're gonna get when you do interviews for morning shows but you try to book things that will be uplifting and positive and fun and funny and energetic and stuff i guess all that to be said. I wish i had this person on my show back when i did a morning show because if you are feeling like crap and hung over and drowsy and just not wanting to go into work and then you heard this interview. I think your day would turn around early due. At least that's how i felt going out of the interview was like phil so much better. Her energy was bonkers. It was so positive and funny and fun and lighthearted and inclusive. If you're a good interviewer you're also listening right. You know you're part of the audience. And so i just hope that you guys out there feel the same way that i i absolutely loved this inner right now. She is a show on net netflix. Which is a cooking show called best leftovers ever which basically gets a bunch of amazing cooks in and give them leftovers in the refrigerator and they say now you have to go make something special and it's an awesome show and it's perfect for right now because we are all stuck at home. We really can't go out so we've got leftover postmates and we're just like what we do. I don't know she's also on little show called glow on netflix. Which you guys haven't watched glow after you problem. 'cause it's phenomenal. But she's been around forever on american idol was on all that remember that back the day it's also on the show. The boys have you guys seen that done a lot. She's an amazing actress. obviously she's a phenomenal host. An incredible singer a fantastic. Stand up five to a player. She can do it all.
