Listen: Serendipity for the 'Mueller, She Wrote' podcast
"Muller? She wrote has been a weekly podcast since two thousand seventeen examining the developments in the investigation by Robert Muller into Russian interference in the two thousand sixteen election episodes are occasionally taped before a live audience and one was scheduled for last night at Largo here in Los Angeles, and then serendipity struck when it was announced that the mole report would be released that same day, the podcast hosts are stand up comedians, Jellison Johnson, Jordan, Coburn and a woman who only goes by her initials, and now please welcome the host of more. She wrote. He g won't reveal her full name because she's a federal employee whose prohibited by law from participating in partisan political activities, I was in the audience for last night's taping. And then spoke with Jordan, Coburn and AG afterward. And I began by asking AG how the timing of the mole report changed her show last night. It literally changed like twenty minutes before we got here because we've had the same structure for live shows that we've been doing for all two of our previous life show, so far I was like we can't just act like it's a normal day. You guys we have a really great show planned for you that we just scrapped, and we were probably gonna go right off the cuff or this called going and cold. But we hope you enjoy it. We're going to do some sabotage. We're gonna do some fantasy indictment league. Because you we normally keep it a little bit more light hearted and fun and have some games involved. You know in the live show. We'd like a quiz section on our news stories. But yeah, we had to switch it last minute. You go by the initials AG, and for people who don't understand does does that have something to do with the hatch act, and why are your initials in the hatch act in some way connected for people who don't understand what the hatch act is. I'm going out of my way extra to not violate the hatch act because I work for Trump's executive branch. And so the hatch act basically says that you you can't use your agency or title as federal government employees to advocate for or against a somebody running for political office. And we know Trump's been running since the day he got into office because that's his moneymaker. I take a step further. I could use my name. I just want to keep it all out of it. And I want to keep a nice giant crowbar separation between what I do at night and on the weekends. And what I do during the day. What do you think your work, and your background give you in terms of understanding issues that other people might not have working in the government? And I think you're veterans that right, right? What does that perspective? Give you how understanding how absolutely slow the government roles. It's just so Celo and people right now they want answers now. And they, you know, they just don't understand why things take so long, and I hope that I can lend some explanation as to why they do and that it's actually that way for a purpose. When the report came out did you say to yourself? That's it for the podcast because I mean, obviously, the title of the podcast is Muller. She wrote and Miller has written. I'm not sure really because I I don't feel that I'd dictate where this show goes. I think the listeners dictate whether or not the show keeps happening, but you know, personally, we've got twenty offspring investigations from this. That are still open an ongoing we've got the stone trial that doesn't start till November. We've got bijon key on July. We'll keep covering it. If people keep needing us. To cover it. Yeah. I think we know that there's a lot to be covered and could go on for a very long time. But my fear, I guess was that people would take bars four-page summary and think that that means shops closing up, and that's all there's to be seen. But I don't think that's how our fans are. And I think we have a lot more to do. Everyone was like, oh, they're done. No further indictments. And then boom, Greg Craig it's dieted yet. Mr. first name since right? One indictment bridge. Name. Yeah. What you that's the real crime who first name. What do you think it is that you give listeners that maybe they can't find some other place? I think we remove the talking angry heads that a lot of people get tired of. But mostly the whole mission of this was to keep people interested in keep people engaged and to keep it simple. And to to take these traumatic and important events in spin them into humor, it it kind of helps us get through it. It's kind of like if you don't laugh, you'll cry and fans say that we were curatorial journalists and everything that we do we always provide context as well. So it's it's like very as a huge story, obviously and everything fits in a time line. And I think we do a good job of reminding everyone the the importance of each news bid that comes up and keep it rolling in a way that's easy to digest.
