A little quiet from just Phillix full Full explanation it's nine o'clock in the morning. Yes generally at nine o'clock in the morning our office doors open and we We field questions Self problems Here in the news of the day and so while we're doing the podcast today doors open. Let's see what happens. Who Comes in on o'clock in the morning? You know on the weekends family rule where no one talks to me until ten o'clock in the morning I try not for that sounds. That sounds really lovely late. I need a little time to get up and running. Mary sure I get it all right. Let's talk about your personal friend. Mary Tom Hanks Tom Hanks. I Adore Tom. Hanks you have adored him for a long time. I've adored him for a long time. I've David Letterman show. I've worked with him for a long time. When I when I worked with David Letterman I would produce the segments and He was instrumental in helping us get this show launched. The station's new Ellen was funny way back as we were beginning this show. They didn't know of Ellen could do an interview she was gay. They knew she was a not crazy about that fact. They're trying to find ways to overlook back that fact so We invited a number of celebrities to Ellen's home where Ellen interviewed them at our home and Tom. Hanks was one of those people and he's been a friend to our show he named are riffraff room. He's been He person in our time here and it was a genuinely nice guy genuinely. I'd I have to say there are so many of these showbiz people who've been around awhile and they see Mary and put it together Letterman and they light up for her. Yeah they liked her. Yeah they see me on their way out and they say ever remember me again true. They hand their valet ticket and they go. Aw Anyway so Thomas here. Tom was here talking about his new movie. Which I really liked in Mr Rogers? You haven't seen it. It's certainly good now. You'll lie document. It don't make. I haven't seen the documentary. I was not a viewer of his TV. Show of Mister Rogers neighborhood Hould I did not I did not watch. The show is either my age or whatever it didn't it didn't match up that I watched that show. I knew a little bit about it but I had no idea what the movie was about and I was really surprised pleasantly surprised. He's just a he's just a great guy and a great gust. Yes well Tom Tom. Hanks is a huge fan of game of games. I'll yes yes. And No. He thinks it's hilarious. The crazy things Kevin that you think to do do in game of games and then he said one of my favorite real never So funny he said WHO. Are you writers for that toddlers authors basically right. It made me laugh so hard and I thought that was such a gigantic. Get into compliment to you the writers level. But that's what you you you set out to just a big fun funny game. It was so hilarious. Yeah aren't we glad that that that Ellen has another. TV show on doesn't work enough enough enough the jobs I have seen an episode of Game Games and I have never seen anybody be dropped into that big VAT of macaroni and cheese as you you did to somebody yes. The logistics of that have got to be insane. Yeah it's a big. It's a big set. It's a big and this this season. This new season is bigger bigger. We had used the biggest sound stage on this lot. In order to get the Games in two spin to people around to the point of nausea and risk risk physical physical injury right anybody. Everybody like almost drown in that data. Macaroni and cheese. We pull him out pretty quickly. Lifeguards on standing By they're not really lifeguards but yes we have people to pull them out and so. It's not always macaroni and cheese. Sometimes it's soup. There's different things we drop them into. Who writes your show toddlers in here? He's he made. He made a little error. He's he's he's he's the type of guy who's willing to admit when he's made a mistake especially when it makes Basler and this was this bad. This was a personally bad mistake that he made and here he is talking about it. I saw your son jumped off a cliff was that because that I know judge a hide I'm GonNa say six miles. Hi this is him. He marched up. He swam to shore climbed up on beach. Walked all the way up to the top of this mountain and he wasn't waiting more than three three seconds. People look at this. I mean. I can't believe he did that. I was him one. Two three four four seconds of hang time that's the type of fall that will ripple watch off your wrist. Is he usually a daredevil like that yeah he is he out. He rides motorcycles and when we were when he turned twenty me one. He wanted to go for your birthdays. I WanNa go skydiving so we talk after after he ponders things so we went tandem skydiving tandem. So you're attached to somebody who knows what they're doing right your free fall and as your freefalling freefalling your face goes like this. Who probably like two hundred fifty miles an hour right? And then she pop shoot and we stopped and she was doing this thing of swinging around steering US around and I had a huge breakfast burrito before the plane went off and so I I truly I begged her. I'm just like a rag doll. Please please stop stop. Stop and we landed on this Gret Strip. And all I could do was sit on my rump. Then I just had to sit there for about seven minutes waiting for my stomach to combat while other people were coming coming down to Atlanta to say maybe having a huge breakfast burrito. Before you're going to jump out of all bad it had been with you I would have said. Don't eat the whole thing was. It didn't really good all right. Well I would say yeah in line with not eating breakfast burrito before skydiving. You don't need a breakfast Burrito before surfing the little something antler not something. You should do.

Local access show that was called Primetime and he For a shoot for that show one went skydiving. Oh but that's a nice story. And and he was not available to host the show any long. Oh no and the entire city mourned this guy. If you're a celebrity and you think oh well. I'm not a project right now. That forbids me from going skydiving. Still maybe don't go no way.
