"That acumen carried out in the early two thousands. Malaria was killing over a million Mostly kids around the world sumitomo. The japanese manufacturing company or chemical company had developed a Organic insecticide to impregnate a polyethylene based netting with thrim which would kill the mosquitoes that carried malaria. All of the production was done in asia and yet ninety five percent of malaria cases were in africa. And so we were very new but we were lucky enough to partner with unicef and Sumitomo and we found a an entrepreneur in tanzania a new shah to take this technology and build a company a big risk. We made the loan we worked with the company and and then i started to know that it was going to work. The first time i visited and i saw one machine to women making long lasting malaria bed nets. next time i come four machines. Next time i come ten machines a year later. A seventy thousand square foot factory two years later ten thousand women making thirty million nets a year ultimately producing fifteen percent of global production improving to the world that you could manufacturer ask officially inside factories in east africa as you could in asia and that was a real opportunity for african solutions to african problems if we approached solving the problems both with our heads as well as with our hearts and that for too long we'd seen either all heart or all head and it was time for a new game and that was really for me the beginning of what was possible. I loved that so much. What she said. I got when she said there was a real opportunity for african solutions to african problems. I had a real emotional reaction to that. I'd that sounds like extending more dignity as a people we want to help. And we have up until now and not seems to be the theme of of accurate and i love how she concluded revive the scene all heart or all had and it was time for a new game or a. We have one more guest.

It was an amazing experience. I don't think i'll ever forget that. Cynthia was showing me worms.

"And when many of my colleagues just really stand there and go boy. This is a good job when we talk about communicating and relating on this podcast. We often talk about how important it is to pick up clues from the other person as a kind of central part of of communicating. What are they going through as we try to communicate with them. It kind of is important because otherwise we're not really talking to what's happening inside their head. We're talking to what we think might be happening. And malcolm gladwin will told us a story from one of his books that illustrates in the deepest way. I think how important it is to read one another well. Don't you think graham yes. His latest book is called talking to strangers and he kicks off the book with a story which is a really tragic story of somebody misreading. Somebody else really badly. Here is the woman who was over for. No good reason for the most trivial pretexts and his what was that. What was it. An interesting thing she pulled out was at university. Choose pulling hannity's coming out of the university in texas outside of houston and small town and the cop sees that she's gotta stay plates. She's a young black woman search to trail her and then as does police officers are trained to do he. He pulls up behind her and she moves over to let him pass and doesn't use her turning signal so now he says oh i had my pretext and he stops and says man. You didn't use the turning signal when you moved side when i came up binder. Now that's nonsense right. And so she is. She's had not the first time. She's been stopped on a flimsy pretext by police officers. She's had a traumatic personal with the previous year. So she is distressed. The officer reads distress as some mixture of dangerousness and malice. And so the the officer thinks she's up to no good she's going to pull a gun on me. She's a criminal now. Will we know what he was thinking because he reported that in a in testimony is that right. I mean you're not just reading his mind now he's this is what he says afterwards and i think there's something to that the way he responds to her is so bizarre otherwise he starts to almost immediately treat her as if she some kind of criminal as opposed to a woman coming from a job interview at university so he clearly massively misreads the situation. He's treating her as if she's a threat to society. Within thirty seconds of stopping. And i eat is fundamentally a case of him rushing to judgment on the basis of a very faulty reading of her emotional displays and that case is a lesson to all of us about how dangerous it is to rush to those kinds of conclusions about people based on such a noisy and inaccurate source of information and it had a very bad ending the she was arrested and wish put in jail for three days and she ends up taking.

"And there's some terrific shows our first guest is dr anthony fauci and we're talking in a conversation. It was arranged by the ninety second street. Y and we're talking about a podcast. Did for audible called soldiers of science. A really interesting podcast. Four episode podcast. That's available now. And one of the people i interview in that show is dr fauci and briefly. What the story is is one. That's never been heard before by most people which is that during the vietnam war. All the doctors were automatically drafted as soon as they graduated. Med school talk. They were able however to apply to do their service in the public health service and especially at the nih if they were accepted by them but only the cream of the crop were accepted and it turned out to be an an unusual moment in the history of medicine in our country. It changed medicine completely. It's an amazing story. We'll hear a little bit from dr fauci about what it was like for him as he got the chance to go to the nih internship And keeping his fingers crossed. I guess that he might get a call. And then i got a phone call from someone who would ultimately be my mentor from bethesda maryland. Who is in the public health service in said. Congratulations were offering you a position at the nih. You will be a commissioned officer in the united states public health service starting in july of nineteen sixty eight. Do you accept and i said absolutely and that was it so we had the chance now to apply for a particular kind of research and interestingly he chose the most basic research he could find and what he experienced was not just basic research but the the element that made work at the nih during that time so extraordinary it was something that most researchers probably all researchers at that time didn't get to experience and that was the benefit of being in a laboratory. That was housed right at the nih hospital. It's called the nih. Clinical center is the largest research hospital in the world. And that's where my lab was. That's where my mentor was so i did have the extraordinary opportunity of on the one hand doing very basic research but on the other hand continuing to see patients on a daily basis. It was very very unusual. You would have the wards kira and literally within twenty five feet around the corner from the hospital beds were the laboratories where we were doing our experiments so it was a wonderful marriage between the bench and the bedside. I interviewed More than a dozen the scientists in that program who were physicians scientists. They were so good at it that out of the approximately two thousand doctors who were in that program nine of them became nobel prize winners so we have a joke among us so there has. There's mike brown joe goldstein. Harold varmus and bob left goodson. Tony vilocci the only dummy who didn't nobel prize was knee. So most of the time during the podcast you talked about soldiers of science but at the end of it was obviously an inevitably turned toward the covert crisis and there was a critical question that you wanted to ask him. Here it is. Can i ask when you get asked. Questions about herd immunity. Is there any confusion about the two basic ways to get their herd. Immunity is not something we don't want a habit something we have but we don't have it by people dying enbrel. That's the point. You can get hurt immunity that really painful way and you could get hurt immunity. The much less painful way the most painful way is that enough people get infected in sick that the majority of the population is now immune. The only difficult is that we know. Now that already we only have about ten to fifteen percent of the population's been infected and we've already lost three hundred thousand people if you want to wait until you get seventy to eighty percent of the population infected. You're gonna lose a couple of million people that's unacceptable the way to get the herd. Immunity is not allow people to get infected but to give them protection by a vaccine so rather than having seventy to eighty five percent of the people get infected vaccinate seventy to eighty five percent of the people..

Not really you take what comes along. And it's it's so wonderful at this age at nine eight to have things still coming along but I. I can't plan them because not that could stop tomorrow.

Age are as healthy as I am. I think at any age you your your your aches and pains. I had aches and pains when I was forty that Sheila Crestfallen. I'm sorry I didn't mean to bring up something negative. It's in the past. I'm okay now you better be okay. We do something to end. Our seven quick questions. They're not. They're not embarrassing questions. They're they're fun. What do you wish you really understood? Negative people I just don't understand them. 'cause they'll take good stuff and and screw it up and I don't understand. How do you tell someone? They have their facts wrong. I don't do that very often. Are Very well because I'm not sure of the facts. Nobody's ever to the quake that way. That's great what's the strangest question anyone has ever asked. You Bury clean it up and nets. Strangest question anybody's wake you talking to yourself. Betty cleaned up before. You know you have you. You have a question. That's so strange or you know what to say to a microphone. That's that's a good. That's a good enough answer right. Great there how do you stop a compulsive talker you? Should you should know better than I. Because I'm a compulsive talker and I go blithering on and you hamlet so beautifully and you let me go blithering on and then you come back and get right back in the interview again. That sounds like more of description of what you do what I do but that sounds good. How do you like to start a real conversation when you're sitting next to someone you don't know at a dinner party high sailor long a? It's so often here at a dinner party with a sailor to works every time what we sort of touched on this a little bit as we were talking. What gives you confidence ago. Scared to death with that audience. It you have terrible stagefright problems but the audience's reaction and their response pretty soon you find yourself comfortable. And and and enjoying and interacting with them. That's great that's that connection you. Yes you get nourishment from the connection. Yes okay last question. What Book Change Your Life? The wizard of Oz. I I've I've got all the books I've got forty eight Oz books and I fell in love with y'all's books and so I just changed my life. They made me a reader. I I will read anything I can get my hands on and then go back and read the sports again. You've read the many times yes betty. This has been so enjoyable for me. I this is so member. May I say the same touching your fingers? Thank you so much. You don't have to take the microphone all I want..

"I get the impression you've been an improviser all your life. I mean even in back in the days when you were handling. Tv show by yourself. Five hours a day six days a week you had to be an improviser. Couldn't all be planned but it's fun to play with somebody. Yes that's fine. I agree that that's to me. One of the great pleasures of being an actor is having an intimate relationship with somebody who otherwise is a stranger to you. That's right and it's it's amazing how you relate on a whole different level than normal people with each other. That's right that's right. You sense things from the other person's body language tone of voice even more than you do in real life. Yes I do that with her Radford. No no I don't Robert Brad. What do you do with Robert Well? That's another day. We have another interview. I I assume you know who Bob Redford. I've never met him. Oh my God just you. In that cardboard sign out in the office if I ever met him or you know ran into him. I would be so embarrassed because I've taken his name for years. I take his name in vain. I mean people could think we're if deeply intimate I just. I just talked about him. It's wishful thinking Robert Redford. You've never met but you do the marshmallow thing with the bear that blows my mind. Well I think the two I kind of liked the bear.

"Do you remember how it came about. Got Your first acting job in grammar school. I got the late in the skull. Play so you knew you like to perform from that experience. I loved it. I loved it and that even that I think gives you a basic understanding of the relationship between you and the audience and what you had back from the audit is not just not just what they think of you but what they give back with the health. That reciprocal thing. Y- it's hard to. It's hard to overcome fear and anxiety and all that unless unless you get that back from the audience and what about when. They're not actually. They're they're on the other end of the camera but you can't see them or hear them or since what they're going through do nevertheless have a sense of there being there. Yes Oh my goodness yes because if even if you're not they're not there and you can't see them. You're still talking to that. That camera badlands is people as far as high concern. Went on talking 'til that Lens. I'm not talking to a camera lance I'm talking to people. You know that out there as a whole bunch of people that are listening to you seem so good at relating to people. I remember when you were when I watched the clip of you in the fifties just talking to the camera you were talking to the country as if it was one person and you related to me through time and space fifty years later. I thought you were talking to me personally. Every actor has to have this ability to relate and I was thinking of you and Tina Fey on Saturday night. Live when that wonderful sketch where she's a census taker and you answer the door. And you're this sweet lady who gives her the worst possible answers But I remember you're talking about that as a difficult thing because you had to read cue cards over her shoulder and weren't able to look in the I. I really hate that. I hate it too so I I. I've memorized it but when acute goods are up there you can't ignore them. You can't ignore them you just can't and so it. It was address map but you were. It's interesting even though you didn't want to use them. You were so skilled at it that when I saw that sketch there was no way that I didn't believe you're looking her in the eye. Which is very tough because you really get something from the other actor that you can't get any other way. I write hats right. I'm waiting for you to give me something. And he managed no. I'll come up with something in a second you slip the mid so fast. I don't know you're actually doing a great.

"This ability you have to communicate with animals. Sounds extraordinary. The picture of the bear in your waiting room in the office is so interesting because I've seen a another shot of you. Right hugging the bear right next to bear hugging here and the bears head is almost larger than your entire body. And you do this thing with a marshmallow with the bear. What what tell me what what you do. I prefer marsh now on my mouth and the bear takes it out between my lips and tastes it are they. I can't explain it all. And they they they just read your luck a book and they know they spot fear if they if they sense fair then you you have to be very careful but if they sense there's no fear there then it just sit back like you and I are doing and we just have a little go out. Did you develop a way to deal with animals? Or do you think you'll always had. Oh I think in the womb. I had my folks love Al's deeply. Just Kinda my life. Somebody told me that you were at a zoo. And they said don't be don't be were. Don't be offended the animals. This animal never comes out. I think it was a giraffe. Oh it was. It was in DA at Columbus Zoo. Big Huge territory for this giraffe and he was an farthest corner. Wahab way way back there and he said don't he he won't come over even for food. Evil come over. Don't do well. I can't help but I have to talk to the animals so I should come on. Come on sweetie come on over come over. And he just looked Kamala. He came from that corner all the way across and put his head over the fence and let me pet. I was just mind boggled. I want to get back in there with I. Stay with you. What are you supposed is? How do you do it? I I think they sense a lack of fear my primary thing but also tremendous love German. I love animals more than most of the thoughtless over exception of a couple. That's another story. You're good relator to people as well. Have you learned anything about relating to animals that you apply to relating to people? Do you think I mean with the hub? Realize if you meet somebody for the first time like I've been the whole time we've been sitting here this nice engineer. I've been hitting on him while I'm talking just that same basic joke.

"Other outside of very very little I will I will say this that. I have confidence that I have figured. Worst things out over time. Yeah I know that if I figured that out I can figure this figure this. Yeah Yeah Good. Okay last question. We sort of touched on this but this is can I ask you a specific question? My that's my medicine coming back to haunt. What Book Changed Your Life? My name is Asher Lev I That's written by a Jewish writer. Higham Potok upon pronouncing his name correctly. He wrote a long string of books. I think the most popular would probably be called the chosen Which is about it. They turned into a movie. With Robby Benson about Orthodox kids playing baseball Orthodox Jews playing with with a pay us in the homeland And I read that and I thought how did this Jewish guy that grew up in of Orthodox Jew in Brooklyn New York? How did he write about me? Because I felt as though is going through then I went pee bread. He wrote a book called Davita Harp and he wrote two books about an artist. one is my name is Asher lab the other when it's a gift. Bashar lab is about an artist of religious Orthodox and I thought I don't know anything about Orthodox jewelry. I never lived in New York City in my life before it ever lived in New York City in it. This guy has written my life story down on paper and it was one of those kind of nonfiction books in which the world that it takes place in is so perfectly and accurately captured on paper that even though the characters are fictional probably based on his own autobiographical material. It's all it was a novel. It wasn't a it wasn't a history book it wasn't nonfiction and I just saw the world and I saw I saw myself in the body of this six seven eight nine ten thirteen teenage year. Old Boy who grew up as an Orthodox Jew who had visions of of art in his head that were made he was he was constantly was raised in atmosphere asus. That's not what good people do. They don't go off in and become artists. That's a long way of saying that I grew up in an atmosphere in. Which what are you going to do with your life? You gotta you gotTa be in the restaurant manager. You're going become a bookkeeper. You're going to go to school. What are you GonNa do when I was saying things like I don't know there's this thing called the theater you might make your living at night? There was like no. You can't make your life at so is a little bit like that so that I would say the my name is Asher Lev. If I'm pronouncing those words correct by Potok if I'm pronouncing his name correctly That was one of the most important books will you and I were brought together for this podcast by a great writer and Patchett as set up to date and that changed our lives a little bit. Well when I was asked by our our peers at the screen actors guild. If I'd say a few words for your Lifetime Achievement Award was that two years ago he was last last January. I thought Oh let me add it. I know exactly what to say. That our great. Thank you so much for being talking to you. I loved.

"Well. Yeah you you that. That's very impressive. Belt Buckle your wearing their and then wait and wait for the kid to talk about either. The belt buckle or the contest that he wore the belt buckle with and with my own kids I went back and said I I thought every parent would be a little bit better by listening to their kids. Talk as opposed to waiting for them to answer that. That's an error that I made when my kids were small. Did you ever like pick them up from school? Say How a school today what happened. They would never tell you you. You GotTa wait them out until they stole. You know the the answer that serves every purposes fine. Yeah fine fine. I've had. We had our first kid. Probably I was a year older than you were. When you had your host to about twenty two I was I was I was twenty. Yeah Twenty one. Yeah and we. We were kids ourselves so it I. I grew up with my kids. Learning from you learn a lot about who you are from your children. Especially when they do. Would they do things you do? And you don't like the look of it. I remember at one point I had A. I had a jacket that I couldn't get UNZIP the the Zipper was was stuck and I got really frustrated when she just pulled it off and broke the zipper and through that well. What did my son do the next day? Same thing he was putting on something and ripped it apart and threw it down to the corner. Oh look what I taught. Look what look at look at the impatience that his now inherited. So I I get angry at objects like that. I get angry coach at coathangers doorknobs. That don't open right the You and I both have this reputation as being Mister Nice Guy. But look out yeah. That's right if you're if you're a coathanger you better watch your step. Have you ever used this phrase? Let me get this straight. That's when I when I pull that out. Everybody knows they're in trouble now. I have the equivalent to that. Which is I used to do a lot when I was younger? Producer which start to take advantage of me. You know with money or something like that. I would get very quiet and I talk in this tone. That was so quiet. It was sort of ominous. And then if somebody really wronged me I would say I'll tell you what I can forgive or forget which would you like? Everybody came out of your officer dressing room quivering. I have a thing I suggest you know look. I think I'm a well mannered guy. They got a good natured guy. But woe to you who takes advantage of my good nature for years. I thought boy. I love a good lawsuit because it would be a way to explain to them just because I'm not aggressive in clutching you by the throat. That doesn't mean you can take advantage of. Yeah and there are people there who will take advantage of you at the very first opportunity. Yeah and shame on us for not recognizing it sometimes but doubly shame on us. We allow them to do it once once they've defined who they are. You have this thing on twitter where you take pictures of things. That people lost I D- do you. Do you give them a hint about where it is. I talk about being cruel once. I found somebody's Fordham University Student Law had an idea was in central park. And I it up post.

I was in New York City and I was working During one of the springs win the thaw came out up. There's it's like you'd see okay. A cheap plastic gloves. That's one thing a ski glove or something but you see that there it is. It's fine Moroccan leather. Some Rich Guy's hedge funder has lost. You know I'm if the if a pair of gloves costs five hundred bucks this is a two hundred and fifty dollar glove playing there in the slush you on on on Columbus Avenue in the in the low sixties and just say hey that's a loss love man.

Post terms and conditions apply. This is clear embiid and now back to my conversation with Tom. Hanks Alright listen to this. Oh that's That's the typewriter APP. That's hanks writer produced an Abbey. Yeah that does typing thing and as you type you hear the sound of ood seductive about the sound of the typing. Thank you thanks writer. That's available on the on the APP store. Ha W rit. I knowing that so many people can pose on a laptop opera It really a a pattern iphone. What's missing there is the per customer service the sound? It's not tap tap tap so you have. I think there's a choice now at five or six typewriters each one a different typeface as though you have a collection of six typewriters you can you type with all ten fingers. Oh yeah yes like without looking. Oh Yeah it's it's sometimes you have to make sure not looking at it so it comes out you know of course if you if you're not above the home keys then you're then you're screwed. Do you remember taking typing class? I never took it. I wish I did. I written all my life with two fingers. Oh that's the worst way to type that there is a number one. It's slow down your estimation. Yeah Sorry Kid. Can we wrap this up? I need to go major. Have to look at the keys as you're doing it and you're going back and forth between what you're typing when you can touch type Which I learned how to do in high school to music to records to make you go more rhythmic. Yeah Because you weren't you only supposed to look at the the the paper not the keys. Ed The records got faster and faster every week. Oh that music would say okay and ready. Dent bump bump bump bump on a space S S S space D D D Spy. You know I'm beginning to understand why I never took that drive you nuts but you in it for five or six weeks and next thing you know you haven't done that and go a. w. k. 's space W K space l. m. e. space. You had to go like the problem is when they put on a Spike Jones record. Then then you got like an acid trip you know. It was like gibberish down with. This is so interesting I mean you. You must have some. When people collect things they get an intimate relationship with the things they collect. Now for instance when you if people have a collection of Stradivarius violins have to play them. Every once in a while to keep them in shape you have to type. When you do what happens with you. I have some typewriters. That are simply objects of art. They sit on a shelf and they're never use but the vast majority of my collection are working manual. Typewriters that I rotate into use so that they all get They all get used in the course of course special typewriters on nothing special about first edition kind of thing my got. I think the most valuable typewriter I have is an oddly enough and IBM selectric. That Leo DiCaprio used in the movie. Catch me if you and it's funny. I went I went to the I went to the prop master after we were done shooting the scene and I said I will give you twenty five dollars for that. Ibm selectric they said. Okay and he took twenty five dollars. We said you know you gotTa have it for free. I'M GONNA give this guy But it's not about who who typed. I have one typewriter. I think that was owned by Mickey Spelane. I can't prove that he wrote anything on it. But I there's a providence says Maki spelane on the typewriter but mama typewriters worth about sixty bucks you know tops and if I sign them they're worth about sixty two bucks tops fascinating obsession to me when you talk about the keys getting into the texture of the paper. There's something about that. That's not mechanical. There's a there's a human element to these machines that I think you see now. Think faster on a typewriter than I did with a pen in my hand or even on even on my lap. That's interesting you're nervous is on the keyboard helping you. I'd rather get going and stick with it then pause and go back and edit and delete. I show you saying in an interview villas movie. That's coming out now that I'm so interested in seeing I haven't had a chance to see it yet. Mister Rogers Beautiful Day in the neighborhood right so I show you say. Is this true that you felt you learn to listen. Better playing Fred Rogers Mariella. Who is the director? Yeah wonderful direct. He's the boss. We were talking about this very thing about Fred's the great power he had and also a defense mechanism to was to listen and not talk. Let the other person let who? You're talking to reveal themselves in the silence as well as from a single question because they have a tendency like for example for kids to meet a kid for the person and say how. How old are you? Do you go to school with Great Hugh in? What's your favorite subject? Do you have a lot of friends at school? Do you like baseball. We don't even give them a chance to answer the question. We just ask them and and Fred particularly with children would. He did this thing and it's kind like he wouldn't even ask them a question he would say.

"When I I read your writing I wish prize at how much I admired it because I didn't know of you as a writer and the new book of short stories is amazingly good. Oh you read that. Thanks my God. It's so good. The usual you used language to get inside my head and surprise me and keep me amused and interested to get me deeper into the people and you don't use language to show off which I really admire. You could be poetic if you wanted to. But you you you're more plainspoken and and I really loved that. That's the stuff that I just naturally ended up gravitating to you know. I remember We were asked to buy books at a quote Unquote Book Fair and I looked at these titles that they had on car table after card table in high school or junior high school and I had never heard of any of these books. There were by writers. Never heard of the head titles. I'd never heard it and I finally said what is this. A scam you guys. Who Know We'd like we'd like to read we promote reading and it turned out that these books were specifically written for high schoolers. Why you'd never heard so the stories were simplistic. They weren't very so instead. I read in cold blood by Truman capote. That's a book. I got and it scared the living daylights out of me and from from a very early age on I wanted to read about the way things actually worked. And perhaps the way things actually. That's exactly the way I approach to reading. As a kid I was eleven years old and a friend of the family said to. Do you like to read and I said Yeah I really enjoyed you. Know what are you what did you would it be read lately? I said I just read. What MAKES SAMMY RUN? All my law at eleven even read it now. She's she had this stunned look on her face and then she said well. Of course that's over your head and I thought no. It is not shows you how people really behave. It's not the granddaddy of them. All that experience. When somebody has read enough of a book there was a book that was going around and the first line used the word crap in it all that David Copperfield. Kinda crap and none of us had ever seen a book in our library. Dead anything remotely like a swear word and so all of a sudden everybody wants to know what was catcher in the Rye reading catcher in the Ryan at red to lead to nine stories and and also to to be empowered but to discover it yourself I would say that to discover it yourself with the help of a good librarian. Who realizes you're hanging around you might WanNa you might want to like be if they'd like if you if you enjoyed reading airport by Leah by Arthur Hailey you might enjoy reading Armageddon by Leon Yours and so off begins kind of like guide to think when you were young. Would I'd give up on thirty or forty pages if I wasn't really into it. I still have a tendency to I when I was young. I loved reading anything that seems like it came from real life because I really wanted to understand how things got the way they were so we had a living room. That had been decorated. I guess by somebody who bought books by the yard as opposed to the color. They were red leather bound. Haw But they happen to be the congressional record so I opened up a book and lay on the floor and read the congressional record from the. I guess it was from the nineteen forties. And I couldn't get over it. These people would say the distinguished member from Idaho and and they'd insult each other in the most elite classical terms and I thought well this is fascist like a play dialogue and I loved it. There was that there were those type of books that I pretend to have read for a long time. You know when I finally read Moby Dick. Oh I loved Moby Dick. I pretended to have read moby. Dick for an awful long time like that with the Russians off the Hijaz I read. I read worn piece. I pretend to have read Rascal Mikhalkov Book. I would always get up to the reverend's sermon in moby. Dick and I couldn't get this like goes on for seventy pages. I couldn't get past that I couldn't get pass it and I was out Was out with some some friends at whatnot and a friend of one of the guys to sit I'm reading moby Dick You could never read Moby Dick. No you can and he said if you could just get past that reverend servants really does take. Everybody had that I'd pass it. I understand why it's now one of the greatest books now. Here's the thing when I read book of Short Stories. I think you're one of your obsessions crept out without typewriters typewriter. Yeah I mean the the chapters begin with the picture of a different typewriter. What how did you develop this obsession with? How how do you? How many times? How many typewriters you have at home in at home? I'll probably have fifteen scattered about the house but down at the office. I have like a hundred and twenty or something like that. I rest my case. I WHAT IS THE GOTTA? I gotTA start getting rid of them because my kids have said. We're not going to bury you with these things that you'd better start getting them away There is a story that is in that collection that is literally how I got my first typewriter. A friend of mine was a year ahead of me in school and when he went off to college he gave me his high school typewriter. Which was a piece of junk? It was like a knockoff. Nineteen seventies version of a very very very cheaply made horribly constructed typewriter. You could type on and I had it for a couple of years when I was in a I was working in. Cleveland is an actor and I needed to get it fixed and clear was at the Great Lakes Shakespeare Festival I was at the Cleveland. Play or no legendarily. So at the Cleveland Play House. Yeah that was. The Cleveland. Play House was the bitter rival of the best and vice versa. Thing and it was falling apart and the carriage would slide. In when I returned it would not line up properly. There was all sorts of problems with it so I took it to this old German guide. Detroit Avenue Business Machines on the west side of Cleveland. And he was at a shop that was just jammed with every kind of like thousand key adding machines and what have you and he was also servicing by that time printers copy machines or whatnot and he said what can I do for your young man. I said I need to have this typewriter service so let me see the machine. It had leather at case and I opened it up and threw his hands up and says I will not touch this machine album not I will not touch it. He said well I said why is your job to repair business. He says yes. I re- I work on machines. Not On toys. And this is a toy. And he lectured me for the better part in twenty minutes. About what a true typewriter isn't I walked out of there with a Hermes two thousand typewriter that he gave me five dollars off For Trade and for my junk type or any told. I'm just going to throw this away said okay. Fine but that Hermes two thousand typewriter which that particular typewriter got lost over the course about ten years and ten moves as since been replaced by. Well you know one hundred nineteen machines how I understand the story leading to own. You're asking why Y- probing deeper Allen. I mean I understand owning a typewriter because the guy gets turned onto it. But how did you wind up with? You have an obsession with typewriter. I do how did you get that? You can change the world with a typewriter now. You can't change our world two of the pen and paper. If your handwriting is legible enough mine is not. There is something about the order that a a good typewriter puts the words in the the. The margins are equal typefaces crisp. You can make mistakes but go back over it and what you come out of at. The end of a piece of paper is as unique. A creation as any oil painting watercolor photograph negative. Did you write your your book of Short Stories? On a typewriter I began. I wrote about first five pages of one draft of the story on a typewriter because I didn't have my laptop with me at the tunnel. It'd be mad. Dissed in order to do it on a typer but I type every day. I sent a letter to somebody. Leave a memo. Put out notes. I I I send a lot of letters on typewriters because there is something about the purity of the words in your head and the sound of the percussion of the of the keys hitting the paper. And I can't go back enough again to say the uniqueness of let me tell you story I was at nor ephrons house. We were good friends. We work together and nor was one of the Great. Inspirations and She had up on the wall of just in the in the hallway. She had a letter and I leaned in. It was a framed letter so did not get a letter from the letterhead was No Coward and it was a typewritten letter from a Goldeneye his place down in Down Jamaica Right. His his his winter home in Jamaica and it said An all it was whereas a letter to somebody thanking them for a very witty lunch. A lovely a lovely afternoon at their house and there was a little kind of joke at it was obviously shared between Dole cowered in the end a hostess and it was assigned Knoll and I looked at that and I thought no coward type that at his house in Jamaica named Golden Eye. And now it's sixty years later it's hanging on a friend of mine's wall. Nobody throws away a typewritten. So type or a typewritten letter kind of has its own signature and you can picture that person's hands hitting the keys is at the end the force of your finger on the keys impacts the depth of. Here's here's the thing when you type with a typewriter. You are not applying ink onto paper. You're stamping into the fiber of the papers. If I always type out dear Alan alda which by the way I will send you a letter. I can't wait that those are the. Da Our space a. l. a. and Space A. L. A. Space are not on the surface of the paper. They are inside the fabric of the paper and that alone to me. It turns it into a form of a graphic art. It's not just an never mind. What idea might be communicated in their physically if you put it in a drawer? It'll last two thousand years..

"alan alda" Discussed on Clear+Vivid with Alan Alda

"I'm older and this is clear and vivid conversations about connecting and communicating if it's possible to turn compassion into a muddy economic commodity. But if you can make a movie about compassionate understanding and have it be so glamorous because it's a movie that you paid to see that you want to emulate what that is low then there you actually have created a purpose for a movie beyond the Holding up the mirror to to human nature. I I met Tom. Hanks on a plane decades ago and I ran into him a couple of times at award shows and we even made a picture together bridge of spies. But I never really got to know Tom until he came into our studio in Manhattan and we talked about some of his eclectic interests like finding meaning in pop entertainment communicating with children. And of course typewriters. I said he was elected right. Come on in and enjoy the ECLECTIC world of Tom. Hanks it's it's a really Nice Day in the neighborhood Tom. This is so great. Did you read here target? I'm Kinda I'm Kinda pinching myself when you did You did a TV movie. This was long before the green show. you did a TV movie. Who's called the Glasshouse yes It was shot in prison right. I'm still haunted by the final image in which you're the innocent man and you come. There's mayhem that's going on and you are shot dead On the other side of the wrongly chosen door and it was a long shot of just you hunched over with all the backstory behind it. Now that's the thing that you're in. What a date myself. But I say I'm in junior college or high school and I'm watching on. Tv AND TV movies. Were not supposed to be that. Poignant in those days you had the occasional Bryan Song you played Carol chessmen the Us More about mine and I'm not suspending your IMDB. I'm just going on pure pure memory. And I I remember. I was always on the lookout for For something other than the standard fare of television. Because I'm from the generation that knew what time it was by. What was on you know and love of life was over time for you? Go to school and the every now and again. There was one that ninety minute. Television movie came out. There was kind of an art form to it and and Steven Spielberg may dual. That was the move came out during that time there was Bryan Song. Of course that was about With James Caan says as a Brian Picolo football all the guys at school or talked about the next day but the Glass House and a few other few things would come along and I just thought well that's not that's not like an episode of Mannix. That's not like that's not like the high chaparral. This is something. What do you think it is? What how and you made a career doing this of doing stories that appeal to a popular audience. WanNa be entertained and yet had meaning have a layer of meaning the trick to it would so how you go about well. I've been lucky to be able to do that many times to you. Well you kind of like in a lot of ways. You set the standard for like. I don't know well the green show you would do because I know you started writing them. You started directing them as well came one of the you became one of the powerbrokers there on the green show. Of course we're talk about 'em apostrophe a green. I heard that somebody on the show called the green show work and had to put on those olive drab uniform. Nobody ever mentioned that to me. Maybe it was like ever but And you do things like set set. Set a half hour in real time. What happened in that? Was this show. A road was with the Doctor. Who was our adviser and then there was one from the perspective of the patient who couldn't talk because he had a tracheotomy and all the whole thing was from his Hispanic. Yes you guys really loved it when we could tell the story in an unusual way. I remember and this this is Tom. Hang podcast. And I'm talking to Alan All. I remember the first couple of seasons of that. Show it would. There were times where they tried to have kooky episodes. Boxing matches what traditional things instead until writers got used to the idea that we wanted a little more substance they would give us standard servers comedies. Yeah wacky visitors from higher higher you know you play a trick. Gone visiting colonel or something like that and then you guy seemed like was I thought there was a palace coup here amongst everybody that you ended up doing us. A real substance particularly look look what the subject matter was the Korean War right. Well that that we wanted to make sure that I wanted to make sure before we did this. Show that we would not shrink from showing how how bad wargin be there. Was I think to you had the surreptitious comment on Vietnam at show that we did not have anywhere else in popular culture per prickly not on a on a network show? Korea was substituting for what we had just been through not that long before in less than ten years with Vietnam War ended so we had In Mash we had We had you doctors presenting a humanistic portrait of how mad the whole thing and some people say that we contributed to the end of the war. And I never thought so. But I've heard you say in an interview that you felt for instance Philadelphia did help the movement toward accepting AIDS as something. We needed to work on did you. Did I get that wrong to? Do you think it's possible to do I? I was answering a question at some point and it was it was what. What do you think you're going to accomplish with this movie? Philadelphia was a movie that cost X. Millions of dollars and needed to make that money back. Mitt had to compete in the marketplace. That's what I'm asking you how you go about well. The the my answer to that question was says. Look if it's possible to turn compassion into a muddy economic commodity but if you can make a movie about compassion understanding and have it be so glamorous because it's a movie that you paid to see that you want to emulate what that is well then there you actually have created a purpose for a movie beyond the Holding up the mirror to to human nature but boy there so many movies. That are the opposite of compassion. And that's fun you know. I grew up watching movies like the seven faces of Dr Lau and Jason and the ARGONAUTS and You Know Doris Day movies you know. Please don't eat the daisies and by and large. I was usually entertained by almost all movies. I remember seeing a movie called. I swayed the name of it was duel at. Diablo was a western Dennis. Weaver and I think Sidney Poitier in it and those were those. Were the movies that we were used to seeing this type of those type of commerce that even our parents had you know John Wayne Moves I remember going to see McClintock or Chisholm with my dad and my dad was receiving two hours of entertainment. Just like he had been receiving since he was not in the thirties and forties and fifties. It was the thing to do and spend your time then By by the time I became discerning viewer I was looking for something that I could recognize myself. I that where I could see. I've seen that. I feel like that guy. I've seen that in in my community or I've had those same sort of questions about what life is like and so a Not I would just say I ended up growing up watching movies about grownup people going through grownups things and that was what I ended up. I was always attracted to though the those particular kind of human elements of as opposed to. We gotta get these forty guns through Apache Pass..

An Interview with Adam Driver of 'Marriage Story'

"I M Peter Travers this his popcorn where he tell you what's happened in the movies and my guest. Today's Adam driver who has his own film festival between now I guess. Is it the the report that opened the first store that opens I Mirror story opens I in theaters. Then I think is net flicks on December first and I think report is soon after that a couple of weeks after that and star wars after that star wars after that. So how does that happen. Suddenly it is an atom drive for festival US too much too much too much of my face. It really sad. I think Mary story almost close to two years now. Mill wanted to wait a year and give them a lot have a lot of time to work work on it so it just the way the schedule worked out just turned into too much of my face. One time you're carrying around just closed in. Burn this right. Yeah Ah Yeah Yeah like a month and a half ago or so what he would do downtime. No I haven't I haven't had any. I've been having downtime. So it's so it's dry because there is none but I'm going to take some time the needle issuing something now but after that I'm going to take some in some time off and look at a tree. I just can't imagine that happening for you. I don't know if it's this like mid Western mentality in in me that And not to generalize the Mid West of like oh you go to work you get up and go to work in you come home and you're tired and then go to sleep you wake up and go to work so to me. It's Mike Land. Yeah it's it's not so like oh you work a lot. Well yeah that's what you do you do right you go you go to work like the idea of taking months off at like It's is just not wasn't was never in my delays or taking time off wasn't like a something that I'm used to I guess just marriage story he's here in the a poster and then this picture let's start with that one okay. I don't WanNa blow smoke or anything but it's to me. It's one of those rare times where movie turns out perfect. Well I do not know if when you were making it felt that way but it just everything just came together in such a way that it seemed that all had to be that way yet I could never predict which way it was going. Well that's a very nice compliment. No it didn't seem that it was perfect when we were making it. Ah I knew when I got the script that this it was a just as a document just as scripted was beautiful but then shooting it when we actually had to say the language. I was surprised by how difficult it was and then every usually shooting a movie. There's maybe one or two scenes that you know is coming up and you kind kind of Over think that senior. You're anticipating it too much then it's always you know running through your mind. I have that scene coming up for this movie. Every day seemed to be. I was that scene. I'm like Oh this scene is coming up now and then but no no. It's too soon in the shooting schedule. We need more time before But that is also a sign of great great writing where every seen as necessary and vital and the stakes are incredibly high. And that's what you kind of want where there isn't any fat is is it just because it was that emotional matched. Yeah because there's again. The language was beautiful in and of itself. And what's great about Noah's writing as a And how he directs is the the words of the words. And that's fine because I'm you know with W- come from a theater background so I'm used to the play the play but what the intention is behind the the lines can change. And the more you say when you actually have to save Say it to someone else and this one it was It was more emotional than I thought it was going to be because it's so beautifully written descriptions that Charlie has Nicole or you know beautiful. How the scenes with his sonner beautiful? It was hard not to kind of get swept up by it painful. Yeah very funny funny. Paint uh-huh and all of that is happening almost at the same time. He did a really great job of writing a very specific story from various. You Know Specific Lens. It was such a great guide of how you can project all of your relationship to divorce without getting too specific personal but it it was just. It felt very personal personal for everybody. That's why I think well I don't want to give away. Except it's about a break-up you know it's a marriage store that's what people. Yeah BR divorcing separating but really I mean I think movies are always kind of about a lot of things and it's also about you know how love can transition Russian into something else and how painful that can be You know one character is kind of is building themselves up in the other kind of breaking down you know a mourning warning of the loss of love is is also kind of what happens and in underneath hopefully all of the scenes. Where the are you know going through this kind of clinical ritual of getting divorced? There's there is this love underneath that. Hopefully hopefully you feel there still. Is this Connecticut thing that they for so long have had this relationship. That's felt second nature even just being room with each other just not mentally making a choice that that's not a reality anymore as hard. Yes we've seen movies about divorced about split ups marriage things that break up when that happens I think the audience anybody watching it can feel those emotions so I was gonna ask you to when you had your last seen. Do you take Charlie home with you. Is it hard to say goodbye to him. The good thing about working a lot is that there's something else to to distract you from From that I I have a good ability to as soon as it's done to try to drop to try to drop it and I'm always ready need to move on regardless of how much I like shooting. It was tough to shoot but I mean I loved working on this. I'm working with no is my friend. scarlets great Alan alda's Gr- like our radio to Laura dern you know it was a great cast and I loved going to work but I'm always ready for it to be over and so I I think I've just trained myself as soon soon as that's done like flush flush it out of your your mind except with something that you know you're gonNA do again. Something like Star Wars than you put it in the back of your mind somewhere and it kind of stays awesome because we have to keep working on it but stuff like this I try to flush it out of me. Burn this as soon as it's done to flush it burnt. Well let's switch to the report report okay. Political Thriller based on a True Story. So who is this guy that you're playing got him. Dan Jones who who was tasked to write what turned out to be the most comprehensive report for the Senate Intel Dianne Feinstein and the Senate intelligence eligible committee About the as post nine eleven torture program. He went through well. Acquainted to an urban library of information was like six million pages wrote a report. That's just over six thousand pages than it was condensed because it became a partisan issue in and condense to something over five hundred like forty five. I pages that's actually in a book that you can buy on Amazon of the actual torture report and then Scott the writer director can convince that down to who like one hundred and forty five page script so had. There's a lot of things that he could have put in there that maybe were more salacious but there. He was very disciplined and picking facts. That were undisputed that you could throw a dart at any line and there was references footnotes footnotes to back it up. And so that's kind of what it's about his his investigation. And that's what happens. I should say the dog ID investigator the little I guess in total will be seven years. Yeah there's no life no this guy is just determined to do something that when people look back on that time they said well. I know that it's enhanced interrogation waterboarding all that stuff. It just didn't work now. We didn't know that right right right. We didn't and him trying to get get that through like you say a partisan issue Dianne Feinstein also and Annette Benning is tremendous and she's really great but it's like a seventy s political thriller. It's like all the president's men it's like digging out the truth and making that exciting right. Tough is is the. Yeah which is why we knew. That's what happens but no one will really care if we don't you know track what maybe the movie is. Also what about someone being disillusioned by the institution that they grew up to trust having to find his moral compass within. How was he trying to leave his emotions out of it also address? What is the moral compass of our country you know there's a decorum that DSP follow? We can't just go in and like being on a table and say we did this. And that's it. You know when people believe him. There's a process and there's a chain of command that he has to follow and you know in isolation doing all that not really having an avenue to express yourself except to your boss an inevitably you know kind of comes out but then he kind of has to walk it back. It's all. It's all things that were fun to play or where you think about you. Know like the big themes of the movie with marriage story you. I don't try to think about it you to try to just find the humanity in seems that you're shooting and then hopefully like those are playable actions to play a guy who says desk a lot you you know it's a writer and people will come by and say can we watch you. Do this really bore order dropping the blackboard and yet there's so much tension movie and again it's tasking an audience to pay attention and then rewards it so good on you pick those two things to do. Well I mean I mean I was lucky to be involved in both of those things you know. Scott and and nowhere to people that were you know they they. It came both of them came from an urgency. So I'm I'm well. I had nothing much to do with it when I was thinking about those three movies that you happen to be in Star Wars. It's this big size giant movie. You just as comfortable doing that as you are

"A penny, of course. Woody Allen looks at ham as a hack and sell out. He looks at Woody Allen as a loser both kind of right and in it's kind of interesting because he he's a pompous asked. But he is kind of saying I wish my sister married somebody at a little get up and go and wasn't so. So people realize that sometimes these noble endeavors can be a little self-indulgent when you can't pay the bills. Sure if noble. If you're gonna stream if you're an HBO subscriber, you can have as part of your packet stream HBO right now it is. It's a great film. Lot of nuance. Lots of like makes you think about life, and all is very very funny that move he's been acting for how many decades he's been on forever. There was never a time before Alan Alda. No. I know that's how the earth has been divided after I feel like his hair is never chain. It's only changed color. Never physically changed. Literally. It's it's had all the seasons, but hair never changes. It's oh, oh in the aviator. He was great. Great trout, and all that stuff is awesome. Yeah. So he got the lifetime achievement award. So outstanding performance by a male actor in a lead role Rami Malik from bohemian rhapsody. Now, listen up this is this is what is being reported Romney's win solidifies his front runner status at the Oscar. Because sag best actor winners have taken the Oscars thirteen times in the past fourteen years. So make a note of that. Meanwhile, another tip run pissed or you okay with his. A no win love the movie, but we okay with him and his performance. He didn't write it. Yeah. Can't really be. If he was to win the Oscar, I wouldn't be pissed. I would think it was maybe the second or third best performance. But. Clearly good, isn't that this is not rewarding something that's not good. The work was clearly put in well. Well, so outstanding performance by a female actor Glenn Close for the wife. Now, there's a good chance at her winning the Oscar because sag best actress winners have won the asker six years in a row the last six years so with pool of money over there. So we talk about Golden Globes being the indicator turns out, not so much. This is actually does indicate. A fourteen to thirteen fourteen for the men for male actor, right? That's that's a lot. Also, kind of your remember when like Michael Jordan was pick of his game. And he was clear the best player in the game every year, but they invited to panther.

"Flynn, six hundred and ninety two point one FM It's morning, news it is six forty six eight temperature Of sixty nine degrees I noticed. Some high schools are having some. Football scrimmages force Goodman, that, means it's It's back in the air college football teams opening up. Their practices today So one month away from the real? Deal, and but but you said high school high schools like approaching quickly yeah When their seasons get here they start the middle of August and hope hope the weather that we've seen for the last few days will continue. To stick, around as those young men get out there and start, conditioning and. Working out, and that sort of stuff because again that can. Just be brutal on anyone who's outside athletes construction workers I mean? That's I did look down the road the other day. In the the guys who put the roof on the house I'm like man if they'd just waited a few days because they were doing it right when I mean during that brutal. Heat wave, few days they'd have been better off so yeah well, it is. It is, man It is nice to have these temperatures like we've got right now for those working outside I, know it's a it's going. To help, them, be more. Productive and actually Heaven forbid actually. Be a little comfortable, while doing by the way numbers ran from shark week Which I. Didn't watch any I didn't watch any of it this year it was down it's my. Fault then they averaged one point million in total. Viewers on the Discovery Channel is down still. They, nearly doubled CNN's average, of eight hundred ninety, one thousand Melissa different. Times n., n. viewers well actually with those numbers it's more like minnows but that's. Another story Fox News twenty fifth consecutive month is the most watched network in cable in July Beating, out the the others, FOX was first in primetime. With an average of about two point four. Million viewers and. Finished first in. The total day around one point four million Hannity and Tucker Carlson or the top two. Programs for the month and and then MSNBC's Rachel. Meadow came in third with the appropriate named. Rachel, meadow show MSNBC overall, was second behind Fox, News channel in primetime. But then, in total day they dropped to third behind Nickelodeon believe it or not Out of the victory cable networks CNN placed tenth in prime. And seventh in the total day CNN. Lawsuit HGTV USA history channel Discovery Channel hallmark channel and I think shape with Martha, on public access perhaps or maybe after in that last one I missed that one but FOX. Business network beats CNBC who had a twenty three year low in, business day viewers for the month I haven't I in all fairness to, both of those business networks I, have a tough time watching those all those. Tickers and things scrolling or just distracting they're just really hard to to watch but so if if if you're into if you're a TV junkie. Our news junkie then those are the numbers that have been, have been coming in It would have probably helped shark shark NATO Oh I don't know about that, if it had, come out during the month a different channel but maybe they would have fed off. Of each other fed off of? Each. Other did you say that on purpose no now this and this. Was the thirtieth? Anniversary to of shark? Week wasn't that inter twenty fifth or thirtieth I mean I I know they. Were like celebrating some monumental anniversary thirty thirty okay in doing it and look and I I know people right now I, got, a, friend of mine and he's like oh man I got this recorded on the DVR, because he works. A lot and he's like I got this I can't wait to watch, this and I just didn't really think about it much this year, not, that, I was ever a big shark week fan and you know you wanna you wanna, give me a.

He'd suffers from TD s worse than. A lot of. Folks out there yeah but you know. What he does give some great advice in his he he put out a tweet says if you get a diagnosis keep moving Yeah. I love that good for him you know unlike our friends on.
