I'm Jonathan Coleman here with puzzle who Greg Liska. Now, here's your host. Fear Eisenberg. Jonathan, it's time to welcome our special guest. She's an actor activist and author, you know her from orange is the new black and Jane the virgin. Please welcome. Diane Guerrero. Diane, welcome to ask me another Dan. You went to reach us college to set outside of Boston. You studied political science and communications. I did. How did you end up becoming an actor? I wasn't that very good at school. Yeah, I know. No, I really wasn't. I wasn't great at it. I went to school because I wanted to be. I wanted to be number of things really, but I said to myself, oh, maybe I'll try out journalism and so I started taking political science courses and communication. And then I was like, oh, I think I'm going to be a diplomat. That's really hard to. On, so then you know, and then I thought it was like, okay, you know what? I'm just gonna figure it out. Maybe law school who knows and then yeah, and then I kept on trying different things till I got here. And did you did you take acting classes or did you start auditioning? Like how did that transition happen? Well, I went to performance art Tai school when I was a kid I when I was in high school, and so I was very familiar with the arts and I really loved it. When I left college, I started taking acting classes, so I just went to like beginning acting and beginning improv. And so I kept on taking classes like that. Then I moved to New York and I, I joined this school that was sort of like a cult on. It was scary, but it really did prepare me help. It helps. Yeah. Yeah. They were certainly big on thick skin. Oh yeah, they they made me cry every day somehow I could not cry in a damn scene. So I, what I did was I just started auditioning, and then I started working. Yeah. Yeah. And this is graduation season and you just gave a commencement speech at your on the monitor and to received an honorary doctorate of laws. How did it feel? Was it fun? Oh, God, it was great. It was great. Yeah. And I, I've been doing more of these within the last two years. I've been giving talks at different universities. I've gotten better. And so this one it was special because I was actually getting a degree along with everybody else. I actually didn't get my degree from Regis when I went there. I was like a semester your semester schilling. Yeah. Yeah, a few credits. So this was pretty great. Yeah. Yeah. But of course, all I went to Catholic all women's college now it's not a women's anymore, but you know, all all of my the nuns because there were still nuns teaching their professors and they all came up during the this is nice, but you can finish. You can finish you have you just have a few credits left and Mike just leave me alone online classes Komi later. Now, your big acting break came in two thousand and twelve. When you were cast in orange is the new black as Marita Ramose a Bronx, bred character with Colombian roots. Now, it seems that the show managed the impossible. It's a huge ensemble cast where everyone supposedly like each other. What is the secret ingredient? Just just be around women. Just have everyone be a woman. I, you know, from experience, it's it's a really great environment. You know, it's so funny because people like would assume the opposite war, how you know how they've brainwashed us in the past caddy women, his the state l. ac- competition. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, I feel like I mean, you can find that anywhere really. But I think I mean, I always have found myself very comfortable in groups of women and spaces where it's like female run. I mean, I went to an all women's college, but this was definitely a progressive group and everyone really loved being there, and everybody was really excited to make something that was unlike any other. And you know what I find very impressive and particularly admirable about you is that you are one hundred percent self made because growing up your parents, Andrew brother were deported when you were just fourteen years old and you were forced to basically fend for yourself, how did you manage. I don't know. Yeah. I, you know, I think I had a very clear out of very need that if that did happen. I mean, I did grow up with fear of my family being separated that was always very present in our household. And so I was just always sort of like an outside of looking in, especially because I was the only one in the family who was documented, who is a citizen. So anyway, I grew up very confused, but I always had a very clear in my mind that whatever happened that I was going to continue going and I was going to be strong and I was gonna find a way to succeed. And that didn't mean I mean I didn't. I didn't think, oh, I'm going to succeed as an actor this or that I just wanted to succeed in life. I guess I just wanted to figure out a way to be happy and to, you know. You know, figure everything out and hopefully along the way, help my family one day and in two thousand fourteen, you wrote a very powerful op Ed piece for the Los Angeles Times about your brother, your brother, your parents, deportation. What was it about? Two thousand fourteen that you decided it is now time for me to tell the story publicly. I thought maybe my voice could be an asset. Way because especially because of the the people who are I was hearing on the news and on different talk shows really didn't when they talked about immigration. It really didn't seem personal to me. So I figured it will. How are these people representing my experience and the experience of millions? I know what this feels like. I know family separation is, so it's not really that easy. It's not. We need to have better conversations about this, and then I decided, okay, I'll write something and see if it moves the needle in any way. And what was the aftermath once that was published? It was. It was like cats out of a bag and do all this work. So I'm like, I'm so tired. I'm like, oh, we here struggling Hollywood. I'm like, nobody wants to give me a job. You know those some drug dealers girlfriend. And here I am putting myself in this vision like now do all this work on top of this work. Yeah. And it also led to obviously you deciding to write a book a whole memoir based on your life. Yeah, called in the country. We love my family divided, and now you not only have this book, but you've decided to publish it while it's being published. Your latest book is targeted towards a young adult audience. Yeah, it is called family divided one girl's journey of home loss and hope. What is different about this version? It's just like an easier read like easier than already the easy book. And why do people come up to me all the time? It's like, I loved your book. I read it in one sitting, it's an easy read. Yeah, I I mentioned for younger student. Those are the students that have been responding to the story. So I wrote it for them. Really. It wasn't intended for you an adult. So yeah, that's why you found it easy. And now this memoir your story is being developed as television series. Well, trying, okay. I'm in talks right now of developing either a series or film. I can take it in many different directions, but that's sort of like when I'm getting into right now, animated series, all that ovals. Yeah, yeah. I wanna make into a children's book actually. I'm very interested in that. And then you know. Knows Dora the explorer dose. You were going to put my family bitches. It'll be that she'll be like going. Lee families alone, Grassi.

According to the encyclopedia Britannica approximately how many stone blocks make up the great pyramid of Giza. So a pyramid with four sides. I was there once I was at this pyramid. All I remember is that it is very big. The blocks are pretty big, but not super big. This is just technical term. That you're gonna know how I don't know. Figure this out. So we'll let's say one f on the bottom say I don't know a hundred blocks and then if it were cube, you do one hundred times one hundred times one hundred, which would be a one with six, which is a million. But it's not a cube, it's a pyramid, so it's going to be less, but I don't know how by how much because I don't remember my geometry. But I'm going to say it's. I'm going to say five hundred thousand blocks. I've hundred thousand a lot of very big pyramids. Okay. Fear. Sixty. Sixty blocks. Okay. I'm gonna say slightly less than yours to sort of even out and give myself a shot. So I'm going to say four hundred thousand four hundred. I did someone just do a spit saints. Escorted at you. Very brave and smart snorting dark anonymous darkness. Very proud. Just to be clear. We were talking about the great pyramids green. It's not the mini pyramid, but the great outing nobody likes right. So Jonathan, you said five hundred thousand? Yes. You said four hundred thousand blocks. The crowd said there were two million. Three hundred ninety. Nine thousand three hundred forty eight blocks seems like too many. The correct answer is two point. Three million. Wow. The crowd was very close just a little the next one according to a two thousand ten study in the Wall Street Journal in an average NFL football game for how many minutes is the ball actually in play. Okay. This is American football, right? Yes. Okay. So what does that three periods. I can't. I can't help you. You're going to have to work this. It doesn't seem like it's ever long enough that the balls in play. It's always like a whistle, and they finally tries four tries or something like that. Yeah, Canadian football, three. It's harder. You don't. Okay. So I'm going to say how about forty minutes? Forty minutes, got collectively totally out the game. Like a lot of minutes now making it exciting does seem like a lot of minutes, but I don't know. I mean to have, yeah, I used air quotes. I don't know if I'm correct. Well, that's why there's a halftime show. I know that this is a sport where there's a lot of running and kicking new jump on each other. That's yeah, that's all right. So this to have, yeah, football game and they're each fifteen hours long. They take forever. I think there's a lot of a lot of ways to time. There's a lot of they run down the clock for some reason that I don't understand what time out, what's that, who even knows stay punt. They huddle. I'm gonna say. You guys are big fans. Clearly I'm going to say that it's I'm just going to say it's a fifty fifty minutes zero. So there are sixty minutes of actual time in the game. Right fierce says forty of those. The ball is in play. Fifty fifty. It's probably right. At least he didn't say sixty eight or something. The crowd thought that football football is in play for thirty eight minutes. The real answer is eleven minutes. You do the rest to stand around. They dispute what happened during the eleven minutes Paul. Okay. So the crowd wins that one. Congratulations. Good work for a good work, Jonathan and good work.
