Chris Hemsworth, David Spade
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 Ave episode of Ellen on the go. Chris hemsworth. My boyfriend tries our game pitch. Please David Spade crashes a wedding with selene Dion. And you're gonna love that story Ellen meet seven teachers from the same Kansas school are all pregnant the exact same time. I know we play around of bay versus millennial and the podcast wouldn't be complete unless we discussed Kevin's incredible inability what yes. For the first time. It's you Kevin to, you know, read it, we're discuss Kevin's incredible mind boggling insane inability to catch anything I hate crime, which is a felony. Oh now, it's taken us. I can't catch. To Ellen Melissa. Second. I'm Ed glavin. Andy lasts ner. And I'm nauseous. Gerry's pregnant can't catch berry. Are not. Are not associated with each other. Mary also gay Mary can catch. That's very well there. They're very well. My brother for years older than I am was a soccer player at school. I was I played other things other than soccer. And this is this is time. We'll tell you about this. We had a coach years ago who said to my brother Connolly, you're good with your feet and your sister will she's good with their hands. Really? Time for every time. I heard that at the time. It was just a perfectly fine thing to say. Track or something to I did not detract. I played volleyball basketball and softball. They didn't have track in the big city school that I went to. Basketball has a Ford. All nice. I was I played for the YIF H L, the sheep of floor Hockey League. Eight teams in that. True story. How'd you guys do we won the championship one of the four years that I play, but very nice? What happened was there was only six Jewish schools. Right. We let into non-jewish goals to play with us which ones Hastings on the Hudson. Jer love hand Yonker something really remember. Yeah. Ed sports careers to say fetus. Vetus brief sports career. Yeah. It was more of a townie sports career than that a school sports career plate mainly the thing. I could play well with baseball. I could hit a baseball. Really, well, but I had unique combination of being able to hit really well. And then being unbelievably slow, right? So. Those two things went great. I had the distinction of being the only player that I knew at the time to break a finger in a soccer match. Not the goalie. But I thought that was a stupid rule and the ball was getting past me. And so I stuck my hand up. I was for today. Should we time out another hate crime? Where two minutes in the puck known asked me if I played a sport. Oh, Kevin come on. All right. Just. Did you play? Kevin. What's? Play. I was on the B-team of of basketball in grade. Nice. Which was basically anyone who didn't make like if you didn't make the team right here on the beach team right me into wheelchairs, but I won them in my kidding, no to one the mighty spirit award, which meant I clap better than everybody else. I think so you think you. Winning. You had good spirit. So he's an award-winning. All right. So you Clapper can clap requires hand eye coordination of putting two hands together. What Jason Gallus another head writer on the show knows this. If you want to throw something at me, there's two steps that require are must be done before you do it one to say my name aloud Kevin then say, I'm going to throw something you need to be prepared. Yes. Preparation. Everyone likes a little preference. How this all happened in the meetings on Fridays? Yes. My special job is to DVD's in. Yes. I sit right next to the DVD player because we still use DVD's at the show. That's true. Ed glavin member the podcast threw me a DVD across the room across from me. He kinda did. He didn't. And what happened? I just looked like a sealed trying to just can't catch, you know, those dinosaurs that you have the little hands. And you didn't know what they were for Kevin catch. If I were to line up right now, there's six of us in the right? No offense to the folks in the room who aren't active members of the podcast relying, the six of us up and go who seems to be maybe the most athletic in the group, right? Kevin. Kevin is a big work around or muscles. It's a little point. Yeah. Kevin works out at the one brothers. Jim Jim here in for a few dollars a month. You're right. You're allowed to work out here. I asked him yesterday. Are there ever celebrities there? He goes actually, I've been working out next to Michael Douglas for. Well, I think that that was. Crazy. Yeah. Yeah. What other celebrities? Have you seen it to Jim? I saw that FRANZ brother. His how'd, you know, his brother? I'm in love is Ephron. Looks like when you when you're Zach Ephron, STAN. Wow. That might be worked out at the gym briefly. Thanks, rasa. Now, that's not not have. And when we're not taping shows, right and never seen. Anybody? When was the last time you went to that gym? August. Wow. Because when we're not doing shows, and we're in the office. I go to the gym. Okay. I don't know if you can notice on the I would assume you can Kevin has gigantic arms. He is a weightlifter. He's very fit, and and they're worthless. Yeah. Oh, well, this is the problem. We talk about ourselves. And I think we should have guest today. I agree. Kevin. Can you book anyone? And would you come up with? I Betty as Michael Douglas. Please welcome Mike cast and didn't want to be part of it. No the truth is people are loving when we occasionally have someone telling you when you go skiing and they come on. This is there's been a letter writing campaign a lot of people, and what they like is they like to meet different members of the staff in here about what they do for the show because they've heard enough from us already it seems it seems like they've had enough of us. So Kevin who do we have today, we have one of our human interest producers who is so insanely talented and also nice, and she will explain first of all what a human interest. We're just call her beloved she's beloved by the staff, please welcome Tracey gold. Hi, Tracy, Tracy can go have a seat. Microphone. It's not as upscale is the bachelor recap show. Gosh, I'm so nervous. You're you're one of the stars of the bachelor recap show. Everyone knows you ready. View. Yeah. They probably know you from our bachelor recap show, which you can find on Ellen tube. And Tracy is also as Kevin mentioned a human interest producer. So before we go further. Explain what human interest producing means. So I always say that pretty much any non celebrity you see on the show like any like real person comes in contact with my department has something to do with exactly like take someone like ago, not a real person. Betty sample. And and and it is in my opinion, one of the hardest jobs in television. Yes. Celebrities, you know, you can count on them. They're going to be here. They're going to get on the phone when their publicist tells you to plan out segments at cetera when you're dealing with human interest people you really a are competing with a lot of other shows when you hear a great story. So you gotta get them. You got to convince them, and then be you know, you really have to hand hold these people to make them the best you can on the show. And I think it takes a lot of skill takes a lot of heart and warmth, not that it doesn't to be a segment producer of celebrities. But and around the clock dedication to those stories when they break like we often hear about barrel stars before anyone else because and and and that whole department are constantly combing and searching and looking for the next cool story without a doubt. So that's all we have for Tracy. Thank you. For. How did we find you, Tracy? How did you end up at our show? I started as a PA not just John show. And I started in the P office, you know, most fun time and worse time as a PA most fun time. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. Oh my gosh. That's getting Ed coffee. That was fun. Yeah. This fine. You're really used on the show or. Juban scared. I got was when I first started. I had just started. And you guys had Ellen was in a bunny costume at the bottom of the stairs. And I was certainly not the target because nobody knew who I was at that time 'cause I had just started. And I walked down the stairs. She didn't even like, boo. 'cause she was like, you know, this is a PA. I'm going to let it go to your thing. And I got scared just from her being there the bunny being there every time round Halloween. We show a montage of staff scares. Yes. And Tracy's always the one that you see who falls on third. Members who fall, Tracy falls and Carl Hart just drop like their legs, go out. That was your body laughs. But me. Everybody laughs an I commiserate with Tracy like getting Zaidi for tracey's. You're very skittish. I am like we can all be onstage together.

This is a big moment. You can whatever you wanna ask. What's your question? Is there really a book a secrets that's a secret? Like, what kind of secrets would you want to know? What would you what would be in the book secrets are real? Well, what do you think? Well, after watching this TV show, I think aliens are probably real, okay? Well, which TV show was that. I think it's called nyc America's book secrets. There you go. The seems like somebody spilled the secrets. I thought that was classified. There's a TV show. Yeah. Well, the truth is may say, we we we haven't actually made direct contact with aliens yet. But when we do I'll let you know. Okay. Yeah. What else? So don't even have to have secret service. No, bone sunny. They're on their own. But usually we don't let them out of the White House unless they're with us.

This story seemed insane to me. It seemed so hilarious about the the elementary school elementary school in Kansas is like this school has fifteen teachers that is correct seven of them are nuns. Seven of them became pregnant all around the same time. Yes. Her act Tracy came across the story or someone in Tracy's department. We gonna pregnant story and you brought this story to us. Tell us a little bit about these people. Like, you said there are teachers at a school if there's three hundred kids fifteen teachers, so there's about twenty kids per class, and we saw it was kind of getting gaining national attention in the news that there are these seven teachers our pregnant around the same time. And so we thought whenever we see stories in the news like that we call find out more about the story, and they were huge huge Ellen fans, which most people are call on them. But they were like I mean had amazing stories kind of to each of the individual wines about their connection with Ellen. And so we thought they'd be fun to do something with some rise, especially with our mother say show, and you had a unique idea. So not all of these pregnant teachers are first time moms, but we wanted to invite them to the mother stays show. So we had a dilemma because the audience. This is first time expectant moms. And yet we wanted to reward these women, but they aren't first time expectant mom. So you had an interesting solution to that dilemma, what was your solution? Well, there's a place that's not technically in our audience. But that's in our studio that was kind of lawless anything can happen, and that would be the sky box. And so I picked to you people. What do we put them in the sky box because there's no rules. Rule for the studio audience, but there's no rule for the sky box. I thought that was fantastic coming. So he's coming to play a little clip of their. Yes, sir. You ago this photo of seven teachers from oak street elementary in Goddard Kansas went viral because they were all pregnant at the same time. We gathered all of the teachers in one room since pregnancy is obviously contagious there. So let's see them. Where are they? They're they. Okay. I didn't want to risk catching it. So instead, I thought I would. Pop up on their screen and surprise them. All right here, we go. Ladies I excuse me. Hi. I depressed. Nobody have baby right now. How's it going? All right. Who is who's who's do the soonest who who's kind of ready to have baby right now. When are you two? What is your name? Winter when are you due Tuesday? Like what? I know in Tuesday is okay. So. Just take some depress. I don't wanna see anything. That'll I don't wanna see that. So here's my question. Do your husbands all know each other. I was just wondering if like one night they were all out together and said, hey, I got an idea, let's all the home, and you know. Terror, Katie where are you too? I'm tara. I'm katie. Okay. So you actually already had your babies when were they born we had our babies actually within twenty four hours of each other at the same hospital like two rooms from each other. So they were born on the twenty seventh and the twenty eighth. That's amazing and just one quick question. It's all different fathers, right? All right. All right. Katie you were still teaching the day before you gave birth is that right? Yes. Mrs Miller was really hoping somebody's water would break at school. I was going to go long as I could. And I had can checks every five minutes apart. But I was just steetch ING thrills. And then I sent my kids to lunch and recess and while they're resource. I thought my water break. I laughed text. My long-term seven said, I need you to come. Longterm sub just should have been next to you the whole time. Anyway, that's that's great. So they'll be here for the mother stay show. So that's that's exciting. You could be to hashtag Ellen Ellen mother of mothers. What else can we ask Tracy about? Where are you from originally, Texas, Dallas? Yeah. Yes. Who's your favorite executive producer? Present company excluded. Yes. Darren right. Derek? I love all there. No, I have such a special relationship with each of you have ninety more. Yeah. Right. Sabbatical from the drinking. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. But that's why you have the shakes. She david. Mary scares me. We're best friends. We're best friends. You me, gene? You're kind of best friends talk about Judy assume, Tracy is a Jew from Texas. We talk about hockey little bit a little because the ours voice with Ed you in talk football about Tracy's like she's she's not just a Cowboys fan. She is a Cowboys fan but not just a Cowboys fan. She is a she's a knowledgeable football fan Chino's football. Yeah. Makes me very happy trees. And are you still a runner? Do you still run? Are you taking a break from the running? I've taken a break from the running gene in Iran ah half marathon before her wedding, which was like two years ago. And that was the last race. I did really. Yeah. Because my knees started hurting your so tall. I played volleyball. Yeah. The mega bestseller that has enthralled millions of readers at gentlemen, in Moscow by a more tolls buzzes with the energy of numerous adventures, love affairs and twists of fate raves. The Wall Street Journal Entertainment Weekly calls a gentleman in Moscow gorgeous while oh, the Oprah magazine calls it irresistible. Now in paperback. This transporting novel tells of count the Rostov a man who has ordered to spend the rest of his life inside a luxury hotel. He can't leave his hotel. You won't want to a gentleman in Moscow now available wherever books are sold. I have a question for Tracy. But I I need to talk about the total package. Chris hemsworth. Oh my God. Like, literally, my favorite guests. We have on. Yeah. And we were he was on for a long time this week. Yeah. So there's a ton more than we can play for you here. But you have to watch the show on your DVR because if you watch it you also get to see his face, which is unlike an podcast, which is literal perfection. And so his, you know, look here and see or does soon as he comes out everything just goes, foggy for you everything else. Blurs? I just see him. You just see I love him so much like that Instagram affect happens in his brain. And Jesse you guys know Ed is built himself a control center. In the control room that yes is comical if you were to step back or so in it. We don't have time to look he's in charge of the pictures. He's in charge of the temperature. He has different canvas things he can do. But he's got this whole library of pictures of Chris Hemsworth right there next to sit right next to put Armley. I don't care I'm playing Brixham balls. But that one get to the surfing one get to the likes of his arms are insane. Because nobody fat none. He's bodies where and you'll you'll probably understand. I mean, I've seen in a million times never in my family. But he's got one of those bodies where like he sees hip bone. Oh, I love. Yeah. It's just it pisses me off anyway. So in this clip, we're going to play for you. We'd played our game pitch, please. Because he has a new fitness app called center without the and TR. Yep. And he was selling a box of Mary's rash cream, which we really do Sal in the riffraff room. Works. It's so he he can't see what he's selling right Ellen thinks of a ton of questions to ask him. He asked to act like he knows what it is and endorse it and sell it to the people watch it. Yes. So here's that what happens is this is a product that you will be selling as if you're on QVC and you'll be telling us. All about. Okay. So tell the audience first of all do you use this yourself? Every morning noon. Not. Yeah. What is the right amount? Do you think as much as you'd like the mole use them? Abend official. It is better you feel and what does the area you would apply this to mostly under the arms? Right. All the areas. Right. But you feel comfortable putting it do you? Do you think that you can do any activity with it on? Does it limit you in any way? No, no, no. You could try with the with the. You could get intimate with. When you say you get intimate with it. So your partner it does not your partner's going to be fine with probably via. My wife has three them. That's great. That's not to get too personal you and your wife use this while you're being intimate. You. Apparently. Yeah. Good. Why did you start using it in the first place in order to just lack of intimacy? You know? Bouma bond and connection, right? There was something missing. Right. The laws. Okay. What? Celebrities. Besides yourself would benefit from using this over Christmas. It. Robert downey. I think scholar Trotta the didn't lock it. She didn't like it. Maybe she didn't need it. She didn't need is. Right. Right. So. What could what could go wrong using it? What are the just the side effects that could how? I mean. Trouble. Trouble sitting down and sleep. That's what I thought you'd say from having trouble sleeping. I use it. And if I'm feeling tied the moaning deuce rub it on my face. Right. I wanna know. That's good. I guess let's take a look if you wanna come around and see what you've been selling. Everyone going. Mary. Intimate right? You. Mary. Hi, I mean, I'm what is it like to be standing fifteen feet in front of Chris Hemsworth, while he's selling your rash cream? Unbelievable. It's hilarious. It was both one of my prouder moments. And I was mortified oh my gosh. It was so funny. And then Claudia who's been a guest on this podcast with furious at me because I didn't then get a picture of myself. Oh, Chris and the rash gray. I would have been and maybe that would have been Instagram where the I know I know what what is it will. So we're doing we're giving away tickets to the mother's day show with the hashtag Ellen mother of mother's mother and fisheries he gold. Okay. Great. I think she'd give away a subscription to Chris Hemsworth app center. Yeah. Good idea one year. Now, let's go to two years. We're in the first year of our podcast. I don't know if we had. I will say will steal it from the show when no one's here. Listeners of the podcast. Nobody controls the budget of the podcast. Do we have to do to says? Yes. A way to lose weight and getting shape really get fit get fit with with Chris. And also watch Chris Hemsworth on on your phone or whatever. Or however the app works. Exactly. Sure. What should they do at hashtag? Chris has a giant Hemsworth giant Hemsworth? This happens in the podcast. Also, a little lawless. I dunno. Chris Hemsworth Hemsworth. Snow? I like Chris has giant Hemsworth. Type that and you could win. Maybe we'll get a few people that. Yeah. That's a good idea. We'll see how it goes. All right, Tracy, if more than one person asks. Yeah. The third question. I get most often about this show is are the people truly surprised when Ellen CISCO's or FaceTime. Yes, they off your department. That is our department. Yeah. Has happened. So we li- is a sensual truth of the matter. I don't want to say too many diesels. Because what if somebody's listening somebody? We want us apprise. Well, also, I think it's important to remember as many people as we say, you're going to talk to a producer. And then they get Ellen ten times more than that only get the producer, correct? Right. So we're ninety percent of the time not lying and a lot of times when we say you're getting a producer. That's who you get correct. And Ellen is a producer. So sometimes it does technically not ally. But yeah, I think that that's something because we can't always explain they think they're gonna talk to a producer and then Ellen shows up. So it looks like they're set and ready to talk to somebody. And you're probably a little confused, but they have absolutely no clue that they're about to talk about scared. It's not going to prize them. With every day. Really? Oh my gosh. 'cause I wanted to go. I mean, it just takes that one person that just maybe catches on a little much. But the thing is even if they're not surprised the fact that they're getting the talk to Ellen typically makes for a great reaction. What? So even if they have a little idea usually still hopefully, get a good reaction. All right. So that's the third question here usually has I'm gonna I'm gonna guess with the first two questions is Ellen is nice as she there every person. Right. She really then there's then there's a tie for number two. Okay. Say is it really fun to work there? Because it looks like you guys must have so much fun that. No one's ever asked that. Or what do they fall into in the network? Oh, that's a good one. That'd be my number one game of games question. Yeah. You know? I get a lot. Maybe it's because I'm always drinking is the outlet hall real. I get that question. A lot always drinking. You are always tricky question. I'm in bed. Answer's always. Yes. Kevin would never fake drink ways. What a waste that would know. On the show Ellen. Let's really also surprising. They've kept in would be always drinking that much out the hall. So try what you say fifty fifty on that. Yeah. I get the question all the time. Yeah. That's what people. Yeah. So you start using eight see the Nate. Yeah. So what was it like joining a show halfway into its run? Was that overwhelming that easy? I wasn't what you expected. I think it was just like a whirlwind. I came straight from college. I literally grown up here. Like, you are family. I went to college yet. But that's why I mean, I literally started. Yeah. University of Texas hook him, but longhorn's. Yep. Exactly Horn's hook him. I think the hardest part was getting to know learning all the people in what everybody does that such an important part of knowing who to ask the question to. Oh, that's that's that's a perfect segue into a question that I've always had is can you explain to me and to everybody else listening? What does Andy do? That's a very fair question. Go ahead. Well, he. Makes really funny. Comments in our production meeting when you're not there. He leads it. He there's a lot of good feedback that people like when I take over is that right? They run a meeting overtake the meeting. Literally discussions. Many people are saying many people are saying Trump. There's a lot of people saying Andy will say is hilarious almost as hilarious as David Spade. Who is just here. Oh my God. Like one of his best.
