I was blown away look under and Ian, friends or Ellen on the he never looking at Ellen on the go. And they they're like I mean stuff on yelp doesn't even get five stars. I don't know if perhaps Kevin paid people to send reviews, but do your boys listen to the podcast occasionally on the way to school. They say listen to that radio show. You do you would you give them out? I will high eaten and Ryan while that was really the best right? Hi. Hi, ryan. So glad you listened to the podcast.

Then Trump in this podcast. They're trying to influence handy. They're trying to get you in there. So these aren't real my gosh, this is going to be fun to watch. Now. We'll see how Andy suddenly starts thinking the Russians. This is fascinating never thought of it until I never thought look at our radio talk about lily Tomlin, and Jane lily Tomlin, and Jane Fonda, I love them so much when I was in high school lily Tomlin was on Broadway in a show called appearing nightly, and she was had a one woman show on Broadway. And it was unbelievable. It was fantastic. And I knew her from Laffin, and I knew her from that, and she's do Letterman which Letterman 'cause she used to do Letterman. Yeah. She used to do Letterman, and it's so much fun to see she and Jane Fonda on grace and Franky. And this was they have all these young viewers. I think are just so your nephew TB Mary. Really? Yeah. But just so everyone knows Mary's nephew works with Nancy Pelosi. Yeah. And is pretty high up in that. Tell you a little self Mary's, political bent. Yes. So she every time you see Nancy Pelosi on the news like walking from one meeting to another. There's Mary's nephew, which I think is very cool. But that's not what we were saying. So anyway, young people love this Franken, grace grace and grace and Franky everyone. I know who started watching it as Debbie have watched. So my daughter, Emily, who's twenty four fell in love with Grayson, Frankie and kept telling me to watch it. And like I do with most of the people. I love the most I did not listen already for an extended period of time. And then I when I truly ran out of things to watch. I thought let me try this grace and Franky and two episodes, and I began wondering why the hell I never listened to people when they read. I love it so much. We've seen every episode where I think the new one starts out will came out last Friday drop last Friday, and they're just amazing together on on grace and Franky for whatever reason I didn't have such huge expectations of them together on the Ellen show. I didn't think they were going to be grace and Franky. I thought they're going to be lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda, which they were and their chemistry together. They're just like endurable higher. Larry's both boldly. Boldly hasn't been here. Five times. She hasn't been here. Ten times she'd never been here before. Does not want sane. I know lily Tomlin had never been here. She give Ellen her Mark Twain prize rise. That's right. And it's just it was so fun to see how they are really sharp and funny. She is timing that they have for each. I just wanted. I just wanna road trip with them. They just make me laugh lily, just I dunno lily, just just she is the perfect complement to. And Jane, just like has amazing comic timing has a little slow burn has a little look has a little thing. And then we did questions. Right. I don't think we call it. We didn't call it burning questions for them. But we we ask them questions. And the question we asked was describe each other in one word while I love, and it was quite a moment. Take a listen. That would really tell them when Jane Fonda and we're gonna play a question game in honor of the seasons. Grayson, Frankie, it's called lily. Jane, don't give I apologized for that. That's the name of the game. And I didn't I didn't write it. But that's the theme was the it's the theme. You know, you get old and then who gives them right, right, right? The team this season is I don't give right. So I'm gonna hit a button and random questions where baba and you have to both answer. Honestly with the first thing that comes to mind. All right. Your best Celebi burst celebrity crush Tony Curtis. Okay. Dorothy malone. Okay. Started early. Something everyone loves, but you hate mashed potatoes. I love him. I was wrong. I don't know. Why said that? Jane cooked, bananas of any kind. All right. Do you want to redo wreck yourself? Now, you've lost the Hispanic audience. I'm not running for. All right. I'm going to say, I hate cotton balls. I don't know who likes him. But I hate Cotton Bowl. I don't even want to say the word. Okay. Your go-to excuse to get out of something. I'm old. Try again. This bribe each other in one word adroit alias. Totally. I liked to do a love scene with lamb Nason. Or Mike Shelton. Yellen Shelton Blake Shelton lily. Oh. Dorothy malone. She died. Me. I'm not gonna say I know enough of that going around anyway. I have a hard time answering this. Okay. Because honestly, I I love Jane. I can't it's hard for me to think of say that's the right. I know that's the right answer. Because you're telling me, it's the right in. Ways. All right. The new season of grace and Franky is available on Netflix. This friday. We'll be right back. So the questions was called, Jane and lily, don't give a. Which is the theme of their show this season. And and and there and true if they were to form they didn't give and they haven't for a long time. So that's really fun and lily. I'm sure it's still on your DVR. So you should really watch the whole interview. It's it's they were they were two or three acts, and they were fantastic and lily eighty years old is in jeans and a Ruth, Bader Ginsburg shirts. Yeah. Shirt with a jacket over it and rose colored glasses looking just as cool as all get out. I mean, and Jane who had on just an insanely beautiful suit was regretting that she wasn't wearing a tee shirt as cool as lily's. We'd love them. We do. And you know, Mary when I'm when I made a you're gonna come put some flowers at my head. So. I'm gonna wheel you to wherever you want to go.

Washington phrases rushing alo- get by and there's no collusion. Now show fun costume for Ellen. She was this year she was drunk bachelorette and Kevin can talk about. This is our sixteen season sixteen season. Avella in dressing up on Halloween seems easy to just come up with the costume. And put it on Ellen turns out, there's a little more work. Why don't you tell us about the always talked about this one Kev? Do do you? Do we all remember? Yeah. The first Halloween the first season of the Ellen show. When we it was her first year. It's a talk show host came in. And we said I now we're gonna pitch you on Halloween costume for the Halloween show. And she went, oh, no, no. I don't I don't I don't do that. I don't trust. Let's not a thing. I'm going to be doing. Later of all the talk show conventions. She did not think that that was one that she was going to to she didn't about any of them. Yeah. Right. Doesn't Ellen wanted to be. I used to say to her. There are some things that we do talk shows that are, you know, necessary. And she said, well, we're going to revisit all of them. What was she the first season? She was she was docked feels either Dr Phil or Scarlett O'Hara. Now, she was Dr Phil season. She wasn't a bag of money Oprah where the bag that was wonda. Okay. L in her first year was Dr Phil Kevin. How does how come about? How do we? When do we start talking about it? And I mean we start talking about really early probably August. And then we kind of serious towards number in the we have a very large creative staff. Yes. Puts huge list together of ideas. This year was a little tricky. Because all the scary things seem to be political. Yeah, we were trying to think of a costume that could just like everyone could agree on and have fun with. We then narrow the list down to probably what we pitch out anything twelve. Maybe ten twelve ideas from one hundred. Yeah. And she goes down. Yes. No. Maybe. No. No. Yes. So then we get down to two or three. We sketch. Them up. And then we have an insanely talented wardrobe team who puts together off those sketches a couple ideas for Ellen in. She gets sucked into the bachelor every single year rise not to she swears that she's never gonna want. Always what leave the finalists were drunk bachelorette or twitches Black Panther and her as white cougar the caress. I think be a. Trying to be a an older. Yes. But she's so smart, she she instantaneously out. Loud can weigh the pros and cons of each costume and go. Yeah, I'm gonna be I'm gonna be a bachelor contestant, and I'm going to be drunk. And I think she sparked to the notion of the fun that she could have as drunk bachelorette. Doesn't change your mind doesn't go character. I think yes. Like that is only had a character who she could be that episode. The Halloween show is still on your DVR, you should write while they should want. You should watch the purpose of this cast is to get people to then go rewatch, you know, the show either on their db ours or to Ellen to well, it seems that your purposes to establish yourself as the host. Well, we don't know. And be like, you're working on plans. You don't know how much longer going to do this show? It's been sixteen seasons. And I'd like to do it for think she's going to do it for line. Now. I know, but when I wanna seamlessly go from that to being a top podcast or in this country and possibly the world top podcasts are in this country. Yeah. So I'm trying to think of what happens. So we're the Supremes Diana Ross. You said it not me. But. Good way to look at Wayne. Yes. Back to hell. Loyd. So obviously, you can't have a bachelorette without a bachelor. So our talent team, but together list of people that we thought it'd be fun to come out and be the person that Ellen is falling in love with. This was terrific and who better than Milo Ventimiglia, God, really, so handsome. He came out as the bachelor and could not have been funnier and the audience could not have been more excited, and it was a surprise. And I love that moment. When a surprise celebrity comes out, and there's like light applause for about a second and a half. And then it hits them. I know that guy my Milo and about three seconds in. They just lose their. Oh my gosh. This is he's there. I'm here. Yeah. And then the audience just loses their minds. Happy everybody. You all look wonderful Ellen hallowing shows being preempted for special episodes of the bachelor. Any bachelor fans here. If you don't know the show is what would happen. If the hunger games was sponsored by Don Julio tequila. Is Halloween is still going to be a scary show. That's what Ellen would want. So when I meet the new bachelor, I'm gonna scare the pants off of him. Here's a really scary thing since this is the bachelor this show is going to be six hours long. So, you know. You know?
