"And it's a good test for Arizona now because you don't want to have a let down against the you know, against a team that you should beat, especially on your own field and Tom Brady. We'll get another shot to make a first impression with the Buccaneers. Such did just a dumb conversation all week about whether or not Bruce Arians should be. Telling people he's surprised at how Tom Brady played in week. One, Okay. Show of hands. I know I can't see you. But let's pretend how many of you were surprised by how Tom Brady played in week one. I wass. I mean, come on, we expect Tom Brady is the victim of his own success. So with Bruce area, the surprised and Tom Brady's probably surprised at how it went to. I don't think that's throwing him under the bus. I just think that's telling the truth, Which is why players love Bruce Arians. I think there's a perception that you haven't taken a lot of criticism from your coaches before. I don't think this is something that surprised me this week. Is it Also, it's question just just whether you were surprised at all to hear Bruce speaking publicly about the pics and being critical of you as he was. I know he's coach, so you know player trying to win a game. What a smart Alec, although even better than Brady, like dripping with sarcasm, as he answers that that reporter is his death stare, you have got to find it. Just look up. Tom Brady the zoom call whatever it is If looks could kill. He was not messing around. He was He was firing darts with his eyes. He's the coach. I'm a player. Duh. Oh, my gosh. Even the tone of voice you could hear him. What was the question? I can't help. But that kind of stuff makes me laugh because I, too, would probably employ sarcasm. I plead the fifth wrong, Brad says on Facebook, the Colts and the Vikings. My Colts are full of excuses after last week, and the Vikes should be an NFC contender. Let's go. Let's see, Erin says. My game happened last night. Finally, some of the baker we all know and love good game by the Bangles to Yes, it definitely was. Let's see Read. Patriots versus Seahawks. The most intriguing for me see the new Look New England team against a good team and watch two great quarterbacks, Alfred. Same thing. Curious to see how Cam does on the road against the Seattle defense, Robert puts it differently. I need to need to see the Patriots high school offense against a real novelty. And then Brian, my Raiders and the states at the death star. Oh, yeah. Can't wait. We're.

Chicago White Sox clinch winning season, plus current playoff field
"Turn your head because I certainly did over the past couple of days maybe I got washed up at a bit of college football, the NFL return and but I didn't realize the Chicago White Sox. We're now in first place in the American league central after going eight and two in their last ten games they are. Let's see a game up on the Minnesota twins who have figured things out and are now in second place in that. Leaves the Cleveland Indians losers of six straight all the way down to third place at twenty and twenty one and four and a half games out. So so the Indians have gone from first place in the division arguably the team to beat in the American League two. Now, a wildcard team outside of the top two in the division and four and a half games out just that quickly I mean, don't you know six in a row and when the white sox are winning four that's at least. Four Games in the last four days and with a deficit of four and a half, it's gone from a half a game to four and a half year. By the time Friday rolled around you have the Detroit Tigers at twenty and twenty six, and then the Kansas City royals at twenty and twenty eight. Neither of them are atrocious baseball teams, which honestly is a bit better than I had anticipated for both of them but neither of them are going to be infecting the playoff picture with their presence. Where do we go here? The Chicago White SOx thirty and sixteen winners of four, straight eight and two in their last ten they swept the Tigers this past weekend. Let's take a look at their scheduled down the stretch here. See who they have coming up. They have four with the Minnesota twins who I just spoke about being a game back. So this'll be a fantastic series between the white. SOX and the twins it'll be in Minnesota Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday some fantastic pitching matchups in those. Then they travel to Cincinnati to Cleveland and retell her for return home ver-. CHICAGO. So the white sox tough schedule down the stretch with clubs over five hundred and then the reds mixed in there. So we'll see if they can continue to play quality baseball they continue to be led by Jose Abreu. He's crushing the Baseball fifteen home runs. Forty eight RB is Tim Anderson is currently your Major League leader. In batting average, he'd be your batting champion at three, sixty two. If he qualifies in Thirty six games, one, hundred, fifty, two are bats I think he has just qualified fine when it comes to that statistic on the pitching side of things Lucas g Alito. Continues to pitch well, Dallas Kaikal not a lot of people talking about it but six in two two, one, nine era talk about a successful year Then you got mad foster coming out of the bullpen with a one three, one era so Chicago a well rounded team they were my surprise bic in the American league at least they got the memo because. My Cincinnati reds on the other side will get to them but they still haven't figured things out sell but hey, one or two in regards to surprise picks. So the summer I'll take that absolutely. Did I think they'd be a first place team I didn't think the white sox will be a first place team but I certainly thought they were good enough to. Make the wild card and make the playoffs. Now we're talking standard one, sixty, two, five teams but yeah, certainly a pleasant surprise on the south side of the windy city.
Fresh update on "alec" discussed on Lori and Julia
"Well, I'll have to make an extra batch for you. Yes. Ah, SNL coming back the whole cast. Lex. That was the big news yesterday. What else do we know Jim Carey is going to be Joe Biden. What do you think of that? Isn't that fantastic? Okay, let me when you picture this, huh? You look at their faces side by side. This smile like you know, he's going to be able to pull that off for sure. Okay? I like this individual casting. But let me let me ask a broader question to the group at large. How do we feel? About your asking this. I'm glad you're asking this. How do we feel about this new trend of with Lorne Michaels? Where they're having outside. Cast members play an almost recurring role doesn't that doesn't take away from the spirit of the not ready for prime time players? Doesn't that take away from the actual cast? As much as I enjoy the Tina Fey's coming backto Place, Air Palin or Alec Baldwin playing the president or Jim Carrey playing Biden. I don't know how I feel about that, Lex. Who That's a tough one because it brings people to the yard. And right now SNL needs that now. Is that a indicator of not so great cast Maybe, And things aren't quite striking like they have in, you know, like the chemistry and individual characters like they have in past years, But I I'd love it and There has to be a balance of having you know, like a Jim Carey come in, because they want to have the door open form They want we know he was rejected from SNL. How will he do you know, as Joe Biden. So I have mixed feelings about it, but ultimately I like it. And I feel bad for the other characters. If they're like, if if they had I feel bad about it. Yeah, I haven't thought about that before. What is it? I wonder? You know, we don't know some of the talents that there's so many. I don't know. 3/4 of the cast. I really don't and I don't want it enough all just watch clips the next day. I don't watch in on Saturday night. I think a lot of people do so does it Are we not seeing some of these people's full potential because it is extremely difficult to be cast on that show. I have friends who You know, have been called to do it and just time after time, and like you, said Jim Carey, a lot of celebrities in their twenties, you know, audition did never made it. So are we not seeing the full potential of some of these cast members? I mean, I just don't feel like they've had a real break out Star for a long time. You know that's really stood out. Kenny. I? It makes me very uncomfortable. I I guess I don't like it. Did it start with Alec Baldwin. Well, in some ways, it really started with Tina Fey. I mean, she came back not as regular as Alec Baldwin. But Tina Fey returned SNL. She had been gone for a few years and during the 08 presidential campaign, she read that play Palin and she did it about three or four times. She did it initially. Then she did. Probably the most famous skit is when she played governor Palin. In her interview with Katie Couric Holder played Amy played Katie Couric. On. Then she did maybe to others after that, including when Governor Palin hosted SNL herself, So that was really the first time I think I was okay with everything up until this point, because with her, she used to be a cast member with Baldwin Heat. I mean, how many times is he hosted? 18 Billion, you know, Eleventy million. S so I guess I was okay with that. But Jim Carrey just seems to me. Ah, like yeah, I think they should have gone with a cast member or not at all. I'm in the middle, because Lex, I posed the question because I've I have two sides. I have two feelings on it. I feel bad for the cast, but I got to tell you this is stunt casting because it's working on me. I am going to tune in because I want to see Jim Carey play Joe Biden yet, So you know what I mean, Lex, and if you don't have a cast member that can do it. That's another thing. Yeah. Maybe there's maybe Lauren tried. Maybe they know the he had auditions will anytime there's anytime, Mr President Jason what Whoever the cast is, they always try to find somebody to play the current president of the United States. Whether it's Phil Hartman playing Bill Clinton whether it's Chevy Chase playing Gerald forward, they always do that. But Maybe there just was no one in this current crop That could do Biden I I don't know what I'm thinking. Jason Sudeikis play Joe Biden when he was in the on the show, and he did a great job. But, yeah, I don't know. I'll tune in for curiosity. But I do feel bad for the cast just well, and then they're adding more people to the cast. And they said that there's three new cast members are all like home. OK, like, what are the other ones or the ones that are already there? Right and they play Joe, but that's a bunch of malarkey. 7 23 before we get Teo before we get to dawn, Lex, I'm goingto I'm making your case. But, you know, I just went through the Twitter real quick to make sure there are no volcanoes are asteroids today. And let me just quickly read you the headline from the CBS affiliate in Chicago. Okay? Drone lands in Wrigley Field outfield during game So we'll see you guys I know it looks. I know I'm making your case just so it landed. It disrupted things there to stop arms had to clear the field on DH. Then whoever owned it the bozo fluid away, so Did they go back and figure out Who? It wass? They're tracking that person down now, And he's in a lot of trouble here. She so I just wanted to prove your case That drones aren't always a good thing. But you know what is a good thing? Southwest Airlines and Delta Airlines the way they've been handling the pandemic. What's Southwest Maeda Announcement? Don Yes, Southwest and Delta have been the ones that have consistently not sold the middle seat right now on DSO Southwest is saying that the middle seat can remain open through November..

"Biden. So I just feel like it's not quite fair, like you should get a God either. Get a guy that loves Trump to play Trump or get a guy that hates Biden to play Biden because you're just you're taking all of those overwhelming feelings. I'm talking about Alec Baldwin. Alec Baldwin, Right? Yeah. Alec Baldwin, who plays trump like, Don't you think that that's going to lend itself to a different depiction of of the candidate is you know Jim Carey doesn't want to get out there and make Joe Biden look bad and probably probably doesn't want to even Be a part of too many jokes. So, yeah. When Alec Baldwin does trump there's like he gives it. Oh, yeah comedy coming from a hatred exactly, But Jim Carrey is probably playing with the touch of like I'm lovable. I'm Joe.

How This Massive YouTuber Got Banned For Life
"Get back to. This leafy situation. So if you don't know who he is, Calvin Leafy is here Aka leafy Lee Vail can only be described as well. A drama Youtuber he started uploading in twenty thirteen and got popular around twenty fifteen for making videos about other content creators, their lives, their personalities, their various beliefs, and what he saw as wrong with them you really never know with youtubers one day they could be completely fine next fucking. Oil issues that youtubers can't cancer just sitting here like, yeah, I am cancer but the best fucking cancer on this website maybe he's most notorious video from that era is a now deleted video making fun of another smaller content creator who has a learning disability. It's safe to say that after that he established himself as a bill in pretty quickly that said, he did have a falling Levi's fans saws, videos just harmless jokes and before he got. Banned. He had almost five million subscribers on youtube around two thousand, seventeen leafy took a pretty long break from youtube and it wasn't until recently that he got back to making the videos, he was known for videos about other very dramatic content creators like h h three, Keam Star, and I dubs that said the story of his eventual banning started in July when he turned his attention to poke over the course of several videos, leafy criticize polk means. Content, her appearance and even went as far as to say that she was hiding a secret boyfriend from her fans and that's specific topic became so popular after his videos that the Hashtag pokey main boyfriend was trending on twitter and that prompted this joke from pokey main who said in the past that she's not interested in making her love life public on the Internet leafy spokesman videos all went viral and around that time pokemon announced that she'd be. Taking a long break from streaming and content creation in general, and then recently pokey released an apology video discussing topics that range all the way back to twenty eight eighteen. But she did talk about some of Leakey's criticisms directly. Specifically, her relationship status and comments about her appearance if video is to address freezing comments, criticisms that I perceived I know this video is long overdue. I've seen a lot of people talk about the way that I look recently. There's WanNa. PUT It out there. I don't think I'm the prettiest person in the world. But I think that's okay everyone's entitled to an opinion I personally made the decision seven years ago whenever I got into streaming that I don't want my personal life to the part of my content and that's just what I'm GonNa stick by until I and whoever I'm dating whatever time decide otherwise that video was released on August eighteenth and then three days later on August twenty first Levi's entire youtube channel was gone. Now you choose policy when it comes to violating the rules Is very similar to twitches that we talk about all the time on this show it's three strikes, and then you're at each of the first times violated a policy you get one, and then the third time the channel is just deleted. Youtube cited quote multiple severe violations of Youtube policy prohibiting content designed to harass bully or threatened end quote as the reason for Levi's ban according to tweet from slasher. Now, when the story about lease Van I broke, there was some speculation about. Whether or not he was notified. But as I two strikes at all a representative from Youtube told Julia Alexander a report from the verge debt quote, his channel was terminated because it violated the company's harassment policy three times over a period of ninety days. No specific videos were identified, but they did confirm its permanent when I asked specifically about length of Ban and quote on August twenty first after he was banned leafy tweeted a youtube asking how he could get his account reinstated. In response to the news another Youtuber Cabos tweeted that leafy had never been notified about his first two strikes at all and that his account had just been banned out of knowing leafy himself also claimed keep never been given any strikes in a later comment that said back on June fourth leafy actually tweeted that he'd received two strikes on his account for harassment. There have been some people commenting that those strikes were reverted but that hasn't been confirmed by leafy himself or Youtube. On August twenty fourth leafy tweeted this still looking for his account to be reinstated. And when team Youtube responded, he had some choice words as recording this video leafy channel still nowhere to be found on Youtube and he's actually started to stream on twitch. So I, guess he's trading places but dr disrespect. Now with this whole story mind it's worth noting that Youtube has recently made massive changes to its policy requirements for users. Specifically, the way that content creators are supposed to treat other content creators. issue. In, many different ways and I think we have seen many we've seen some high-profile examples that we know have been Alec and that has caused us to take really hurt look at our harassment Halsey as I'm sure many of you know since like the beginning of time, one of the easiest ways to become popular on youtube is to make you videos about other youtubers. This is specifically true about what we would call drama content where creators be for call each other out. An extremely cringe boxing matches. With. That said, this latest situation involving leafy really seems to show that Youtube is taking stuff seriously and trying to figure out what's fair game the what constitutes harassment at this point with this story I? Think we're just GONNA have to wait and see if Lee will ever get back on Youtube if he'll be able to stay on twitch and if this new stricter policy is going to have long term implications for other creators as well.

talkin' 'bout Our Generation
"Those of you who are already part of the talking about our generation family. Welcome back for those of you or a new to our podcast. Welcome. This podcast is all about connections sharing caring communicating aimed at baby boomers me those of us born between nineteen, forty, six and nineteen, sixty four. We're about remembering who we were and what we've accomplished in what all that means. Today right now 'cause that conversation is really important. We launched last year on the fiftieth anniversary of Woodstock because that was an event that had a major influence on our generation. So we started with a series called the woodstock roads which are conversations with people who made woodstock happened, and who created that amazing magical woodstock spirit that still lives on in many of us today. Soon. We'll be airing our fifty first anniversary of Woodstock episode and we have a very special guest in store for you. We'll talk about that later in this episode but right now we invite you to listen in on our conversation with Lisa Law. Lisa has been a photographer since the days of Haight Ashbury probably even before that and she was also part of the hog farm that was responsible for feeding nearly two hundred thousand woodstock attendees. If. There is one word I would use to describe. Lisa, it's driven. If these were the days of the old West and we were heading from east to California. I would want Lisa driving the lead wagon in the wagon train. Join me now in my conversation with Lisa. You started documenting events in movements with your camera way before Woodstock back in the Christie Minstrel days the love ends in San, Francisco and Haight Ashbury. You were the witness. Through your is, we got to see a lot of the life from those times in the sixties and not just the musicians but the culture, the things that you covered were are conic I- I documented. Every part of my life and I was really lucky to be at the right place at the right time. I was there for the commune's for the.

So let's talk about the hog was the hog farm commune. Farm is a Commun-. Of like people that chipped in and did. Helped up with a work. Great. The Hog farmers still commune.

How to Make Your City an Entrepreneurial Hotspot
"Brad Feld welcome to the show. Thanks for having me. I'm delighted to be here. Brad. You've been a leader of the early stage investor for a very long time. In fact, you found I think one of the most important startup institutions techstars. How did you get started in this whole startup community? Well I started my first company in one, thousand, nine, hundred, seven. and. With a partner grew, it was a self funded business. We sold it to a public company in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, three. I started making investments as an angel investor with the money that I made from that but I told my wife Amy. That We'd move to Bowl I told her that we'd be we we leave Boston. We're living by tomorrow was thirty. She told me she wanted to move to boulder about two months before I turned thirty and I was welcome to come with her. Sounds like. Right it's kind of. Talk goes sometimes. So we went and we moved to boulder. We knew one person he moved away. So when I moved to Boulder in nineteen, ninety, five, I didn't know anyone. And I didn't really expect to do any business and I was investing on the East Coast to the West Coast flying around all the time. And what's happened over the last twenty five years is not only have I been involved in creating spectacular startup community in boulder. I really got my mind around what a startup community was. I labeled it with my first Burqa two thousand twelve called startup communities. Came up with some fundamental principles around it but importantly. Had Two assertions one every city in the world needs a startup community as part of the engine of the city for long term health and development. The. Second is that as humans we choose to live and bill are like around it rather than go somewhere because as the cliche used to go. If you want to build a Tech Company, you've got to move to Silicon Valley and maybe you in two thousand twelve and it's reinforced today by what's happening around the world is that you can build great new companies anywhere in the world and. The startup communities that have evolved everywhere in the world support preneurs building couples, and that's why I think you're you're the updated version of your book startup, Communities Building Ecosystem in your city, which comes out this month is so important because as I used to travel around when you remember when used to be able to travel by air use again, an airplane Brad and was no problem Oh. Yeah. That was. Can't remember it seems like we used to do that. Maybe even last year I exactly. I would visit these cities against age I would speak and I was an angel investor in the early two thousand people say, well, we can't do that because we're not silicon valley right? We're not boulder. We're not Austin. But as you say it's important and you believe that every city can do that. Where do you start? There's lots of different. Pieces to it. But the very important starting point is to recognize that the leaders of startup community has to be entrepreneurs. So you have to look to and have a critical mass of entrepreneurs in your city. Or committed. To taking a long-term Journey Alec to say at least twenty years. To, build a startup community in that town and it's especially powerful for entrepreneurs. You don't have to be successful you don't have to have had. A multi-billion dollar exit, you just have to be someone who cares about both building companies and building, your company. Entrepreneurs in general intercity, and that's all you need to do to be a leader or there's lots of other people who contribute to the activity in the startup community including lots of organizations city state government? Universities. Nonprofit organizations corporations. But you need this critical mass of entrepreneurial leaders and it's it's important to recognize it. Nobody appoints that it's network not hierarchy right? So you have this emergent phenomenon I and the new book that I wrote with Hathaway, the startup community way. We talk about the startup community growing developing as a complex system. It's not one with deterministic outcome. You have lots of things that are constantly interacting with each other and I'm holding and you come back to this notion of network instead of a hierarchy, there's no president of the startup community. There's no vice president membership or vice president of education. There's just a bunch of people interacting with each other who are playing leadership roles with a focus on growing and evolving and developing. Got Their start up community

Okay not just any music. You're so into buffet. We have a great interview do you have a great interview? The please this is one that we recorded a long time ago but we've been sitting on it. Maybe the pandemic was in Wuhan and we were all just like. Oh, China get your act together. We mentioned in the podcast a pandemic would never come here. Right and if it did, it would never last more than a month and even if it did, it would never shut down television production most hallowed occupation. In this country, we talk to Alec Berg who if you are a fan of television I think you're a fan of his sees one of the minds behind Silicon Valley and Another reason we want to talk to him was he was one of the very first writers on late night with Conan O'Brien was, and then he left he and his writing partner left to right on a show called Seinfeld. Am I saying that right? Does he regret that move will find out? Here's Alec Berg. It's the cans on, and then what is this podcast? Today. I don't do. Really don't. Yeah. We were wondering how much of this territory will be trodden but we think people have an oh good. That's great. I, don't know that a lot of people know that you wrote for Coenen. So that's exciting. Yeah. People don't know that I write for any. Buried in your resume, we should introduce you Alec Berg Hello Welcome to the podcast. Thank you well. Thanks for doing this. Thank you for Friday on a Friday afternoon in Los Angeles. Yes. So far this is going great. It is. Actually. Very well, I don't know if you're being sarcastic but I think it's great. I'm assuming it's all sarcasm. I assume every interaction I ever had with anyone as Sarka. Sometimes. See I actually have the opposite where I'm often being sincere and people think I'm being that happens to me a lot where every once in a while I'm sincere. People just assume the boy who cried wolf. Yes. So you gave it up and. Mostly, quit Alec of this incredible resume. But the one thing a lot of people don't know about you is that you wrote on late night with Conan O'Brien. I did briefly in Nineteen ninety-four that started in February of ninety that would have been ninety four. Yes. Show we got there for show ninety nine how Jeff Schaffer ny who I worked with Maven ears were writing team. Yes. So we got there yet in February we got there there were nine massive blizzards that winter they still talk about the winter of one, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, four, New York is like one of the worst ones ever and. For eight of them, oh. Wow. So it was like blizzard and then the snow would start to melt and then another blizzard and so that's my memory of trying to get to thirty rock over. Ten feet of snow on the sidewalks allow you ll already living in New York? No Jeff and I moved out to La in the spring of ninety two and we had been trying to get half our jobs and we had gotten tiny nibbles of things here and there and just enough to keep us in macaroni and cheese. Yeah. When CONAN started hiring, we met with him. We were actually jeff and I met with Conan the day he moved to new. York, we went to his apartment that was on doe heaney. You know near what was then chases, which is right on now. So. He just said whatever you like. But we meeting with him and literally his car came to take him to the airport while we were talking to him and I remember him. Pacing. Around and looking out the window and he said, do I need to leave now? He's here. I'm supposed to talk to you guys, but is it rude that he's sitting down? They're ready to take me and like. Yeah. Yeah. This this is so you can leave them waiting for our. It was weeks before he became unbearable. Now, the driver's sits out there for weeks. It was literally the moment that he left. Allow and you guys were meeting with him about something unrelated know about writing though, right show he an Robert had started to sort of like Robert Staff. Yes had started to talk to some people and Jeff and I met with count and then we wrote a submission packet and Robert Spinal Being Roberts Michael. We didn't hear back. and. Then we got a job on a half hour show starring then unknown Jeff Carlin. Show as you may have guessed, didn't go anywhere. And then we got the company that produced. That show also produced a show called Herman's head, which I know you've seen. and. So we were working on Herman's head and we got a call from Roberts model and he basically said Okay can you start tomorrow and we'll ed what do you mean how? Can you start exactly I mean almost literally that and we're like will first of all, we send that stuff in months ago and never heard anything second of all. No, we took an adjustment. -tated. He's like nobody told me you took another job. In the months ago but as luck would have it, Herman's head as you know got cancelled. I'm a real head head. Yeah. Although it didn't it went on hiatus. So we went on hiatus like you know they they shortened the order and it all but got cancelled. So we called them and said, hey, were around. So that's why we started at show ninety nine. And not at the beginning, right. So we went out there in February and work for three or four months. Yeah and then we were under option to Herman's head. So we had to come back and they didn't pick it up. Okay and once we had moved back to La we were sort of waffling or like it just been through the worst winter of US history. Yes and then we were talking about coming back to Conan, and then we got a call from some friends of ours that worked at another show called Seinfeld which you also might have heard of, yes. Not Herman's head but. At the same point? Getting, you're going even Steven. Yes the scale. Comedic. But so we hired Seinfeld. So then we had to call Coenen back and say we're really sorry. Yeah. But we have this other thing and so we ended up working there and that was the end of our with Seinfeld. Edited ever since Yes. Yes. I did Seinfeld had been on when we started working there it was already the number one show. Has Done I don't want to say they had done all the good episode. Because I was there for slightly more than half of them. But it was an established show. Yeah it was. It was already. Yeah Getting, made in the Mafia really had you know met Jerry you're or learning?.

We've now had you on enough time, so we can say you're definitely friend of the show Dave Berg who was the VP of engineering for Google for android. APP. How you doing Dave? Thank you. L. Community back I'm, excited to be here. Absolutely we're always excited to get you on, and we feel like we've kind of like struck gold when we can have needle that works on the ANDROID team on the show, especially this close to the launch of the next big version of android. Of course, android eleven were deep in the in the waters of the Beta right now. I've been running it on my Pixel xl. Flow riding. I'm I have not installed it online, but I'm living vicariously through flow and. Flow and Jason Dave. What is the most exciting point new role out is when the Beta on for the first time you get those first early reviews, or when it's finally rolled out as the final release. The final release all already anticlimax, everything's working, and so we're not too worried about a Beta, the first. Not The first of all reviewed with the first data is the one that I most nervous, because that's when all of the things that meeting working on SORTA. Come together, the narrative comes together and subways loader at that point to make sure we actually added something that makes sense. PASA. Just good, but we all. Right for sure I mean when you're doing a public Beta. You're doing that I beta. It's really kind of a symbol from Google to say hey, we feel confident enough in this. That is not going to totally wreck your phone. You know through some weird random occurrence that happens. It's going to be pretty safe. It's going to be relatively stable. Nothing's perfect of course, but it would be. It would be kind of difficult to release that and realize Oh. Wait a minute. We actually did miss that thing and it's. It's turning your device too much, so let's reverse that so I. Imagine there's lot of nervousness around. Yeah exactly do we always going to be tested? We call it. A lot of Kugler will use the bills early on, but it's never the same as going broadly in others can wifi access points me out and seeing devices. We haven't seen the Turks are absent installed himself getting up. Water Reaches Sube reporting for US getting the feedback from the community is just as critical to to make it all work together. For sure and you've had a little bit of uncertainty obviously everybody has had some uncertainty with this work from home. A little bit might be the wrong choice of words there, but it's kind of played. A had an effect on the schedule a little bit as well. How has that like? How has that been? You had an idea for the roadmap through. Developer previews and into Beta and then he kind of had extended a little bit. Why why the extension and how? How was it navigating through that? Yeah question I think. The biggest challenge isn't the length of time working from worse at the transition from work in the office, working from home, and so you know I think as we all know. It was quite a quite are quite. Our world turned upside down routines. Mess up and it'll be. We're getting up at home to work from home as RB. A lot of work to do on our tooling so that you could use for example, high-powered desktops are on your desk in the office. devices debugging at home, and like making sure plumbing rolls out works remote add and things like that and so. There was kind of a point or lost productivity really over few weeks to get back up, we actually tracking our internal. Sales so changeless Alec the flow of changes are going through. The team probably dropped him at seven eight percent I would say in the work from home shifts. And so that you know that kind of added up And, so we decided schedule back a couple of weeks. I'm actually rivalry keeps going like I I mean I think actually I mean. Everybody TAP to this this. We're all working your own but it was nice. Especially see my team to make out.

"But you said on on your podcast which is really struck me that you had in that moment never loved another woman as much. Well you know I said before that We did the television version which is an utter. Waste of time. Lang with Jessica Lang and It was an utter waste of time. Because obviously there's a film is quite serviceable. The people can watch if they want to watch that but we did it they. They paid us. A lot of money was back when they were doing those. MSW still they paid us a lot of money. That'd be go do it and they had Diane Elaine coming play stellar. WHO's much more Languid Beauty Kim Stanley and And and John Goodman who was a one middle that she what a wonderful actor John was fantastic and we did that and that was kind of a waste of time But but what is because I mean I feel like director Glenn Jordan. who was a friend of Mine Stanley as to WHO You know like Williams. They're doing all they're talking through the character of Blanche you play you do the role and not that. You're in some competition but you can be as vivid as you WanNa be and you can you. You can take your moments that you earn and in film they gonNa cut you Have is if you're actor. Who Blanche is how he views the world through that prison? They don't cut to you so I always felt that was very an Nemec for me. In terms of the cuts. Yeah Was a film of the one. Make sure that Stanley was in his place ace as a secondary character which is fine that that. That's that's you always take that chance. Yeah in film when someone's interested in when someone else has the Authority Authority but my point is the Diane Lane. It was much more of the classic. I mean Diane Lane is like beautiful and and yet what I did streetcar. The play a An and amy's Annie Oakley. Yeah yeah she's like a really flintoff abroad you know in I like Holly Hunter. Yeah I fell. Fell in love with amy every night. I was so struck me when you said that because I've had experiences where it's one of the beauty beautiful things about acting for me. I in fact I said something pulling recently To a friend we were talking about feeling safe. I'd done this movie called safe spaces and we were just the idea of like. What do I feel safe? was was paramount And and I thought about how safe I feel between action and cut it among the safest moments I feel like when I do a play sued to me why do you can you. Can you distill what that experiences via and I said well I said I guess. Maybe it's a a CD thing even. I said I'm going to go out there. I know exactly what I'm going to say. I never exactly what you're GONNA say. I know exactly how they're going to react. Exactly what's going to happen for the next two and a half hours. I'll take that liberating. Yeah I'M GONNA I'm GonNa enjoy the fact that there's no surprises here great. I know nothing's going to hurt me or whatever ever and I do love I mean most of the I've done nearly everything I've done are pieces that when I read them I said to myself. I'm there's there's a chance on never get it right Scottish play at the writing ninety. Eight with Lee of Alabama. I I never got it right one night. You never never never never never never. Yeah and we'll see car. Maybe once I really wouldn't meaning to say you're so on the lines as written and a big issue with with with with with a when I did The Perfect example was I did acquiesce out on Long Island but SAM Underwood young actor Dr Sam Underwood played Played The boy and we did and it was one of the most amazing experiences of my Chris. Shafir came the rehearsals in the city before we went out to guildhall because it was cheaper to keep everybody here lived here and bring them out there and house them so Shafir to the latter part of his life game. It was just such a joy to know him. But I'd go out there and one of the issues was I said all the lines and I said over lines as written but transpose the line every now and then say one line out of order I'd flip and I got to the last show. I got the final performance on a Sunday afternoon of equis a- guild hall and I went through and I- transpose two lines and fucked up my last chess because I did entertaining Mr Sloane at the roundabout and I literally like I was George Sanders. Here's I came off. The stage went to the prom table. took a cigarette lit a cigarette. I looked at the stage manager in a couple of the interns. Well there you have it there. It is my perfect show every line as written in order the way that I wanted to say. Yeah Yeah and that was so excited by that. Do the show the right way. But isn't that the other people it's easier for me and that's interesting but do you then into l. on that or is that part of the joys the imperfection of a theater piece of theater performance. I think that you. I think that you There are pieces that can lend themselves to where you might feel the urge but the need 'cause you if you go up to riff but I'm of the belief that that all classic plays.

There's you're waiting for Walter Walter Matthau to come around the corner but I like a great hoarder like a really good order. A high class order but hoarder with a purpose abyss. Yes Sir but you this part of town when the upper west side strikes me as more you and maybe a more comfortable place for you. Correct me if I'm wrong than where are you live now than no. I've acclimated to going to well when I lived here when I first moved here. I've said this many times is that the uh-huh you know the Old New York was you know the broken benches in the park and Y- PD on the subways and every light in the park was broken. There was that there was at admonition. I mean very strong was part of the culture that we were. The women didn't walk through the park night. Or go to the Trans versus cut through the park and the park with a mess. This is before the Central Park in Servizi purpose he comes in and becomes the private partner and so forth. When you move here in the eighties early I moved to New York? Seventy nine and I moved to the upper west side in eighty five to live on eightieth between Twin River Center Western was in a brownstone their old SRO hotel. I moved here to Central Park West in ninety two and I lived there for twenty twenty years and in that time of the conservancy in the park went from being kind of a Raunchy Yacky on manicured but but but more more free space. Yeah friends I would play football there and pick up games when I was younger now. Central Park is like a velodrome. It's an event space. Yeah yeah everyone's GonNa thing on everybody's got a pen and on that says Citibank. There were like racing sponsored curing. Something yes this. This is another There's not a spontaneous Dr- breath drawn in central park. And you see because I didn't know the days before I didn't know I remember my mom. We're going to the city. She was an actress. Underlining our age difference when it's already very clear But it's do you miss those days or do you do you has it changed with the The the the central park man was extraordinarily. You know well managed and really they've they've done a great job but the cost of that. If you want to use that word has has been heavily. Permited space what I lived here toward the end I mean central park was gleaming the rest of my bathroom window in my bedroom tower of the building coming up on the twenty second floor and it was beautiful. My apartment. I love my apartment and you know I'm GonNa get my bike and then the last five plus years I lived there. I went the other way I went to Riverside Park on road up to the bridge. And but it's also more. It's where you live now. Seems there are a lot of students a lot of tourists. Isn't that kind of more challenging. Engine for you to live there. I always thought about that. You living in that neighborhood we'd love to be near the park For my children yeah But I think there's two things is one. We have a home outside the city that we go to all the time so the kids get maybe a me. I'd like to have more fresh. I've actually like to move out there. Run around and lease yeah. I'll have to move to Vermont or something actually but But the second thing is that we live down there and don't come back up town east or west side because the kids go to school in Brooklyn and we drive up on ninety fifth and Madison.

Did you ever think he was fake. muppet he's also when he won the Academy Award and and the way he would talk it was like I thought this guy's real name is like Jerry Cohen and he's from Newark New Jersey still in character but I thought he was like a phony because he'd be like I want to say my heart to you from me. Strike you to say me the love movies you view me I was like yeah. Fuck name is Jeffrey. And we've been seeing put on a great neck in exuberant Italian caricature. It was like if you're thinking but he he did that what you're saying. What whereas now? Maybe he was maybe he was. Maybe that was a rude crush. Maybe sick maybe I'll sir anything you gotTA learn a lot. I did my podcast here for ten years. Come back every now and then but I'm downtown downtown. We tend to go to NYC. And do it my say so it was inconvenient for you. I'm with you yeah home. I'm overjoyed to come see. Larry I was going my buddy I was thinking about something something. You're going to talk to my brother. The the format of the show is I talked to my brother beforehand. We talk about the the cast and then afterwards we kind of unpack the conversation. So I'll tell you my brother while he say he hasn't women Tonia. Yeah Oh he's all over you. Real snarky pitch. Yeah he allowed. I just wanted to what you were wearing I don't know if you know this. Do you know that early. Two thousands maybe two thousand to the creators of the show. Ed Rob Burnett who used to do letterman. He was there was talk of and I don't know how far up it got That we might do a show together this way. Though I don't he he had written something for us where you're GonNa play my dad. You wouldn't be this kind of like tough masculine father figure and I was lame you know the opposite basically. We're it was going to be an odd couple comedy. I don't know that I'd ever even got it. Sounds like it did. There was a show that they were going to do. I remember I went and did You know more than usual. I went several miles down the road with the will and grace creators with Concussion yeah about Doing a spin of I I did recurring thing there with them. And they were going to spin off the character and the character If I recall was when my character on the show was intent was vaguely defined defined intelligence agents That was like in the CIA and they wanted me to do a spin off where I was. And you'd be my son and you were like an idiot. Maybe talent you were never going to get into the intelligence. Maybe it was time to be running a surf shop and what struck me at. The time was like Oh yeah. It's perfect it's my polar opposite the way I thought of myself in probably still do is is you is like it'd be a great. That's a great odd couple of you is the OP. Well I did at the time. which is what struck me about? When I then I think you will air like it's completely identical? I well then when we didn't know didn't know that's what I in my mind you were what you read in the paper. Yes and what I saw. I mean you're a movie star you with this larger than life. You remove. Start to me and what I read in the paper and I always thought of you not as whatever that spin was however they spun whatever those news stories were. I always thought of you as type of type of Batman figure you were like a like a vigilante and true true. I lay in bed at night. I couldn't sleep well the more. I've gotten exposed softening cronk. I've thought about it but specifically about the big injustices because you do work against those but also these kind of more minor things and when I did have experienced with the Paparazzi and when we were living in that bill. I always thought of you you as you know. I wish I could do that. Well let me say this to you. And I know that's not a noble thing and you're not gonNA take credit for no no. It's funny how I do I do talk show now and I was a bit sandbag by this. Because I felt really badly then that I had not done Colbert show ever for a long time. I mean Kobe was the person who took over for Letterman and I guess in the kind of overly simplistic way but nobody can really replaced letter. Yeah and so. I didn't bother foulland's a friend of mine when I needed to do that. Round of things for promotional purposes of whatever. I would just do Jimmy because I love your up your podcast episode with Miss Virginia. Good Pal and I love Jimmy so when I finally Do Co. bears show I it's funny because you talk about things people read a he completely sandbags me. The first question has to be goes. Are you an angry person. Oh I forgot we were here. I forgot that we. We're going to filter much of this through the sanctimony this this job his job where he's going to assess everybody and what were the first law growth and already. I'm about to go into the war. So the the and I thought to myself what I wanted to say was that that that in the instances where I've had these difficulties with people. The only thing that AH helps me to sleep at night is that none of its unprovoked. Meeting are there. Are there better ways. I've had of course there are but it's it's not like there's a guy that's fifty feet away with a long lens and I'm running across the street to confront him. It's the guy and I say this completely. The were factually. It's the guy that's GONNA chip my wife's teeth with the Lens that's how close he has. And the second thing I make the call. Yeah if I think you're going to be getting too close to my wife. That's a call that I'm talk about waiting for the cops to come. And this is something that few people I think can relate to a few people have experienced what it is like to be around some of these people not saying all of them but and they do they come right up and and so having had that experience recently I saw those stories in a much. Different Light But when I thought about the idea of maybe working together the other being around each other I thought. Oh yeah opposites And then I've I've come to know you in also publicly your public persona has has changed and you have branched Out into so many different things that I think people just know many people know you much better now was. Did you make a concerted effort to Explain lean to to to do that to branch out During the mid two thousand start you you make This is kind of a cliche but I think you you make films and then you star in films. I'm talking about studios real budgets in your kind of into that when I called brass ring movie acting career where everything is. You're trying to get to the place where you know we're very few men exists today right years ago where you had the Warren beanie. Nicholson into You Know Travolta and people like that who were movie stars concerns. DNA and now You know there's Leo and a couple of other people but you do that and as soon as the movies.

"And help song your prison. Overcrowding problem. You don't mind me making a dollar a clip from the PBS documentary United States of Alec that is a private sector members. Speaking of criminal Justice reform at an Alec event. Shelby I'm shoot and understand how some people would hear that clip and go. Something about that just viscerally for a lot of folks feels wrong. I can definitely understand that. I think a all clips are taken in context, and you're going to clip in choose the which you want and not the whole thing. I think that's well. But let's bear in mind. This is a member of of a company that works for a prison organization. Talking to lawmakers saying, hey, it's okay. If I make a buck on some law, right? And I don't think that that is a matter of a news organization taking a clip out of context. There is something that feels inherently unfair about a big rich private corporation having more power over my lawmakers than the dude who voted him in. Well, again, they don't have quote unquote, more power of the lawmakers. It's a at the end of the day any Bill that would go to the state still has to go through that process. But I don't get the ear of those lawmakers. I can't wine them and dine them for a weekend. Like these corporations can do things through your organization that I will never ever have the power to do ever. Well. Why would I say that? This is why we fight so hard for freedom of speech and freedom of association. Nothing stopping you. Or anybody else from creating an organization similar to Alec that stands for whatever principles you'd want in order to do those things most nonprofit money, plenty of things that would stop everybody from planned Parenthood's of the healthcare industry to everybody else is always meeting with people. I don't Alec doing. It versus other nonprofits does it seems what why is it okay for one group? But but not the other. This is the whole point at the end of the day, regardless of what policies are introducing become Alec model policy still has to go through the democratic process in each state, and that is open, and that is transparent and people as citizens, we all have a duty just as much to watch the watchdogs in DC. We also have a duty to do that at our state level. And one of the best parts that, you know, I get from working within my organization is I get to work with lawmakers that generally are committed to those principles of limited government and free speech, and they have Conteh. Debates and they don't agree on everything. And it's not lockstep everyone's agreeing and disagreed in coming up of new ideas and in different policy solutions, and it's not just this this mill of the Ron where some quote unquote corporation comes in and tells people what to do I I didn't quite disrespectful to the to the everyday lawmakers. We have in this country that are only in session for thirty to ninety days a year, and then actually go back and live in their real world. I know we gotta go in just a minute. But Shelby a wonder what is next for Alec? We're really focused on things like association and free speech, and the great work we've been doing over criminal Justice reform, and it really great to know that someone that spends so much time, quote unquote, investigating Alec can really only focus on things from twenty twelve and before and we're just so focused on the future. And we're excited about that on the future and Alex destructive agenda for future, including its opposition to doing anything meaningful about about climate, change and more and more.

"Back now to our conversation with Shelby Emmett and Lisa graves. Lisa. Let me give you a chance to react to Shelby's last common. And then we'll keep going with more audience questions. Thanks, joshua. Well, you know, I documented the actual history of that stand your ground legislation, and what we know is that the NRA lobbyists took that Bill to an Alec meeting closed door session in Texas that was co chaired by WalMart at the time. The biggest retailer bullets in the world in the biggest seller of rifles, and it was voted on by corporate members. And Alec legislators to make it a national model. That's how that Bill move. Forward was at the NRA's urging while Alec has a hounded the fact that it's not currently one of its models. Alec has done nothing to get those bills repealed across the country, the bills that it helped push into law, and that's the case with voter ID and other measures as well. And so you have a situation which Alec wants to distance itself from the pass without actually doing any repair of those measures. And then in the current context a number. Of the Alec legislators in the states have been accused of sexual harassment or sexual misconduct. Alec has been silent on those. I think Alec hides win it sees controversy. And does a lot of PR spin was regards to the NRA and the standard ground. How how do we know about this? What's what's the for that? Well, I went through and found open records material that we obtained we also went through historical records archives of lawmaker databases, and I've got the material to show exactly how that Bill moved through Florida. And how it was introduced at the Alec meeting that the NRA introduced it. And and also that WalMart co-chaired the meeting at the time. So there's ample documentation, you can find out more at Alec exposed. You can also find out materials through documented dot net and some of our reporting on the intercept dot com. She'll be before we keep Well, I I want to address the issues of sexual harassment as a woman as women who works in an organization ram by a female CEO. That's just quite disgusting. We are an organization we're not legislators parents. And if they did act in a ridiculous horrific way towards women or anybody else, they should be held accountable for that by their voters and their states and by their constituents, but to be a female into work under a female CEO that that's just the spectacle that she would say something like that, quite frankly, Tom wrote this quote about Alec from former Wisconsin governor Tommy Thompson, the quote is I always loved going to meetings because I always found new ideas. And then I take them back to Constan disguise them a little bit and declare that it's mine I'm interested in that quote show be particularly because there are a number of lawmakers who spoken very openly about how much they love. Alec Senator Rick Scott, who's Florida's former governor? Now, a Senator representing Florida had this to say about why he thinks Alec is important, and this is from YouTube video on Alex YouTube channel, I know that with less regulation. More more good things happen. We've been able to Florida to cut fifty four. I think it's fifty four or five. Eighty five hundred regulations and with with that we've had unbelievable prosperity now in DC, I'm gonna do my best to make sure that Washington's quits telling us what to do we should let her states make their own decisions. We need to have laboratories now, I wanna make sure Florida's the best laboratory, of course. But, you know, Alex, doing a great job and thanks for all your hard work to make sure that we keep state's rights, and we don't have continued federal government tried to take over all of our rights. That's florida. Senator Rick Scott who previously represented Florida as its governor. Shelby. What's your take on the appeal of Alec to lawmakers? Sure. I think what the appeal is it will look happening in DC right now..

"The IRS engaged in zero lobbying while it basically pouted all the bills that it path. In fact, it bragged over and over that nearly twenty percent of its bills were enacted every single year on average, and it really was engaged in extensive lobbying to push those bills forward that really is its primary purpose to put those bills or to get them into law, and I would say on this question of the task forces in going the task force meetings versus the public portions, they broadcast just take a look at Dana Millbank, call him about his invitation to his tended task force. And what happened when he was blocked because Alec doesn't want the public to see or hear the corporations voting as equals with the lawmakers on. In fact, you know, it's quite clear, you can see it in state after state can look up almost any state newspaper and see how that Alec agenda moved in those states with very little notice in many instances, very few hearings and Bill moyers actually the great documentary on it called United States of Alec which really showcase I'm how little public input. There is into the agenda. Once it becomes a priority for these corporate. Nations and for Alec another documentary that touched on Alec was thirteenth the documentary by Eva Duvernois about the nature of America's prison systems for a lot of people. The first time they heard of Alec was after the incident with Trayvon Martin in Florida after he was killed by George Zimmerman the documentary thirteenth, which is on net. Flicks touched on this topic. Here is part of what was set in thirteenth tonight a deadly shooting in Sanford police have the gun they've got the shooter, but they have not arrested him. George Zimmerman armed with a gun. Follow this quote unquote suspicious kid after the dispatcher told him not to. They ended up on the ground in a fight and George Zimmerman's shot and killed Trayvon. The police could not arrest Zimmerman because of this Florida law called stand your ground, but says you can kill someone if you feel threatened even though it was Zimmerman who had pursued Martin throughout the neighborhood with a gun clip from the Eva do Vernay documentary thirteenth now to be clear. Stand your ground is not just a law in the state of Florida other states have similar standing around policies either in their state laws or even in their jury instructions. Shelby. What's the connection between Alec and stand your ground? Why did that become a priority for the organization? Well, it didn't become a priority for the organization as I explained before one of the ways that models are introduced as that lawmakers can introduce them and a Florida lawmaker introduced it. And it went through the Alec procedure and process since then this was in twenty twelve since then, you know, Alec has a new CEO we have new in different procedures. We don't even. Focus on those issues anymore. So we don't focus on guns. We don't focus on those type of issues. So yeah, we that went through the procedure that it went through. I completely understand. I'm a minority woman from an inner city. I completely understand how people feel and how they took that. And it also broke my heart personally was about stand your ground that time that became a model policy for Alec. What was it about that that the members kind of latched onto well before my time, but what I can surmise just from what we know from public policy in history around criminal Justice. You know, let's remember a lot of this tough on crime stuff was I can remember growing up in Detroit in the nineties on a lot of this was pushed by Bill Clinton, and Hillary Clinton and Democrats and Republicans the idea that you needed to be quote, unquote, tough on crime, and since then people have through research through engaging with different ideas through data. We've learned that that's not necessarily always the best Lucien, which is why different models and policies and research has. Been done, and you've been able to get to new bipartisan changes with our criminal Justice system. Like the first step back. I want to give Lisa chance to respond to that. In just a minute..

"So they can tell you that they don't represent an extreme position. But in fact, they do in many, many instances, I hear you in terms of your concerns about industry and legislators working arm-in-arm to make policy policies that in your view are extreme I wonder how you see and we'll get more into this in a minute. But see the public involved in this. I mean, if even if Alec wrote a Bill verbatim that a lawmaker introduced and it became law. If it upset enough people, isn't it on us to vote that person out while you know, it's interesting that you would raise that because one of the things Alec did after the two thousand ten election was hold secret sessions with Alec legislators to help them implement. A new computer algorithms to change the districting in those states. And so what you've had in the past few years. The number of Alec legislators who have rewritten their own district lines to make themselves safer from public disapproval and more than willing to push this extreme agenda of Alec once. Alec makes it a standard or a national model for those legislators in many states, they just ram those bills right through the public citizens are left to the side. Why does Alec house so much sway with so many lawmakers? What it does is it provides for a steady stream of contact through these two or three meetings a year with these legislators, and these lobbyists where they're wined, and dined or schmooze and booze at Alec meetings, and many instances, those lobbyists are their main stay campaign contributors to max out in their state limits for those elected representatives, the packs of some of those corporations are there mainstays for their fundraising. And so it creates a long term relationship but helps build and solidify those relationships for these. Alec meetings or in essence vacations, where these lawmakers are hanging out with these lobbyists and building those relationships in ways that are different than in the state where they might have restrictions or disclosures that Alec basically says don't apply because it claims it does no lobbying, and it's not a lobbying organization. Shelby. It sounds like Lisa expressing concerns that this is ultimately just about money, but this is corporations that find lawmakers that they can influence to get what they want and the benefit is through campaign contributions or donations down the line, or maybe even in the shorter term, and that feeds a desire, or or gives more reason to do some of Alex business in public, but some of it in private where the public doesn't really have enough knowledge of what's going on well start. So there's a a lot to digest there. But I I'll say it seems like the criticism is that I guess people have a problem with business being part of the public discussion and within the public square, and I think that's pretty sad. Well, I think. The problem was with people not knowing how much business is part of the public discussion with with that point though. That's also just doesn't make much sense to to dole those of us within the organization. So like, I said before one all of our meetings are publicly posted on our website. You can go and you can buy a ticket. You can register we invite media all.

"Let me get a little more basic information from you Shelby. You mentioned that your members are public sector private sector. And nonprofits was it. Yes. Who who are some of the private sector members? We just have tons of different organizations and companies all over the all over the spectrum so anywhere from communications to education fields to environment to everything. So it the whole point is to bring together people from all over the spectrum because of course, public and. Private individuals. Are what make our system work until we bring them all together. Give us a sense of the state lawmakers who are members of ally. Are there any like requirements for joining or can any state lawmaker join or how does how does the lawmaker become a member of Alex short? So Alec is open to all state, lawmakers were nonpartisan were open to Democrats and Republicans. We have Republicans we have Democrats, and it's very similar almost like the national council. State state'll legislators, it's you bring lawmakers together, and it's just open to all state officials. So what is your sense Lisa of the public awareness? The public perception of Alex is this a group that gets a lot of attention. Or would you guess that most people are not really aware of it? I think that Alec has increased its notoriety over the years and part of the extreme policies that it has pushed, but also it's been profiled in number of documentaries because of the damage that it has done to public policy in the states and nationally. And so I think there's a greater awareness of Alec than when. I helped launch Alec exposed about eight years ago. The presentation of Alec has this body of lawmakers really overlooks the portions of Alex that aren't broadcasts of the public where the press is kept out, for example in those task force meetings. We know from open records requests that corporations corporate lobbyists vote as equals with lawmakers on those bills before they become Alec models approved by that task force in many instances, those bills actually originate from corporate lobbyists. Although Alec has in recent years take into removing the logo branding that used to be on those bills. You know, what you see in recent years is a sort of polished PR campaign to try to present Alec in a different light in reality. What Alec does is give you know, sort of one stop shopping for corporate lobbyists and special interest groups to vote on bills that they want in. So it really is a corporate lobbying operation operation before she'll be chance to to respond. Can I just clarify from you Lisa when you're taught? Talking about extreme policies. What are you referring to? Specifically, can you give me an example? Well, interestingly one of the recent efforts of allocates to repeal the direct election of senators that the new piece, but Alec has a lot of bills that are pretty extreme. Alec for many years was pushing the NRA's position on guns to repeal repeal the assault weapons ban and more Alec has a long history of other measures that are very damaging to the public. They are the ones who really lifted up to the voter ID restrictions after the two thousand eight elections to make it harder for Americans to vote on an Alec was the real force in the states in privatizing our prison system where most prisoners go through the state criminal Justice system. All right. She'll be let me give you chance to respond. Sure, will I I just want to say, I think it's pretty unfortunate that you would use words like extreme to describe an organization that's committed to limited government, free markets and federalism. Some of the great things that we've worked on for example. I don't know how you would. Or call free speech extreme we we've my job is to help protect an insure that you're right in my right to speak is protected. We also have done great things like occupational licensing reform, so people that maybe went to the criminal Justice system in our barred from entering certain occupations..

"So well up into this point Danny Shays that we just told the American audience that Alec Baldwin was coming on. And what they got instead was Daniel Baldwin, and Danny Shays. They're going to holler. As soon as Alec Baldwin shows up. Shore too. Don't forget that. One of the things that I love about this tension with the Baldwin's. And now the Baldwin's in the Walberg s- are feuding, and they should be is just how delighted Greg Cody was to have the fifth fat Baldwin address him. He's listening in can't be no is he I thought I was saying that when he wasn't here. He's still listening to us. Why is he listening to us back on now? So we can find themselves really go. Let's go back on our insults. More in. So but I'm fatter than you are. More Insein fatter than you are. You know, what's interesting that I've been waiting for more than than the celebrity prognosticator and we have Alec Baldwin series special. We we have a very special criterion. Few today, by the way, I want you to know, which is really the highlight of the whole segment is it not in the studio walking in right now. They just stepped into the studio he's going to come in. Here. He is saying, hi. Allocate. All right. You're breathless as you ran up for hurrying to get your alley. He ran up to me here. We appreciate it up before we get to our celebrity prognostication. Can I ask you a couple of questions? I want to ask you, I find your career fascinating. And we had a discussion the other day about whether you're a comedian or an actor because of how good you were on comedians in cars, getting coffee with Seinfeld. What is the distinction? And what do you consider yourself? When I'm on this show when I've do in this show. They would I really consider myself is Daniel Baldwin's, brother. That's what I I'm the brother of a famous radio celebrity of sports prognosticator parked salons. I'm the kind of brother appall even mall. That's a great distinction. So you're a comedian a comedian. He's. Best of the Baldwin clan. Comedian, you know, no, I never say comedian because comedians write their own material. You're not a comic in my mind. That's the distinction unless you write the stuff. So if you're a standup, improv sketch comedy groups groundlings, we'll that kind of stuff you see all those great comedy groups there, you're a comedian. If you right, and I don't right. But I think I think we say. I think you sell yourself short excuse me. Excuse me. I'm sorry. I know it just seems that that other comedians think of you as a comedian because I don't think a lot of other people being on that show with Seinfeld other than you. And I didn't feel like you were there because of your friendship, I feel like you were there because you earned it with your funny. But what I am as a schmuck when I am as schmuck because Seinfeld wanted to a couple of shows reprieves he wanted to bring back a couple of people, and he couldn't get anybody. All the big stars. All the great comedy stars weren't available to called me. And I feel them. Yeah. I'm always the Fillon. I'm the guy. They get is it is it true that you have the big people when they can't get, you know, Howard Stern or someone is it true that you have a standing invitation to do Saturday Night Live whenever you'd like. I wouldn't say that's true. I mean, I have a standing invitation to come on and do something maybe not to host. But undoing the Trump they can certainly something that they've asked me to do more than I have time for, but I mean, yeah, that's like a home to me, and they're all old friends of mine. I mean, I've been doing this now for a while. And in that time, you know, a couple of years from now we'll be doing this for like forty years and in that time where I've worked with people where there was a kind of very comfort zone there.
