"My next guest is a costume designer she's been in the business for three generations her film logger fee if I don't lose my voice here reading off all these wonderful works movies and shows preacher Mr Church Friday night lights the notebook assault let's see Majestic Green Mile Waco just to name a few she's wonderful and the very talented Karen Wagner Karen thanks for coming on the show today thank you I'm delighted to be here you know what I love about you as you mentioned third generation so anytime I get back from please call me out on it because I pride myself on my research and if I'm wrong I want to know about it okay so your grandmother's silent film actress in Your Grandfather's and Academy Award winning cinematographer who who won an award for Alfred Hitchcock's Rebecca my right with both of those things that is correct so those two good so I have to say what your path was much more I mean I think it's always in Europe are not trying to talk for you but I feel like it's always been in you but I always say I'm genetically modified yeah that's a good way of putting it a cow and I'm GonNa get you graduated UC Davis with a degree in painting in our history you Kinda WanNa say took your time but you were very selective allow your path which I really love like many people jump into something and it's like well you know this isn't right for me you kind of took your time yes and things happen but talk a little bit about that early part of your life care well I don't know if I selectively took my time so much as I'm of an Omnivore when it comes to studies and interests I love so many different things and throughout my life I've had this balance of being obsessed with science and math I'm one of those rare weird people who loves math so I've had this dichotomy between math in science and sheer creativity and I guess at the end of the day and as I sit here thinking about what I really had to do was find something that combined the you so I tried a number I I went to UC Davis hoping originally hoping to pursue a career in veterinary medicine and that kind of lost its interest for me and I tried a few other things I studied you know a little bit of law I studied a little bit of chemistry as a little bit of it engineering and I found myself really obsessed with history but the study of history is so often linear about specific things and I'm really far more interested in the whole culture so you can see where this is slow leading me towards costume design because I do a lot of period pieces and I'm always obsessed with creating as much of the world that the script is portraying as much as I can you know whatever period were in like trying to to tip a nod to the politics of the time or other current events of the time so and using what I do also to combine any science so I recently become obsessed with enough I'm not sure I'll be able to spell whereas to to pronounce it right but Electro Micron and photography. So it's it's microscopic photography and the a lot of the images are you know the the surfaces of flies is in mods wings and things and you can't imagine that they're gonNa look where they do so I was able to take that for instance and and apply towards the science fiction project that I finished earlier this year trying to combine you know again combine my love of science it's with my love of of all things artistic and creative so I think that it wasn't so much that I was carefully picking my past we know although I thank you for saying such a lovely way I think it was more me searching for something that would enable me to combine a lot of interest and keep me and keep me interested for careers worth yeah because I have the attention of a fruit flies also like art in science and math are completely could be run in this different sides of the brain different like I feel like there but for you it's so I don't want to say it but it's so it's kind of a collective thing to have you be kind of strong all three of those like you don't see that a lot you know yeah yeah yeah it's I talked to other people in and I'm I'm always I always feel like I'm not the smartest person in the room or the most well educated in a room and I'm often surprised to find that like other you know other people know so much about one thing and then are not interested in learning how about other things and that's not to say you know either way is right or wrong it just surprise dismay that everybody isn't as I like to say I'm never us as I am you know and I feel I mean just looking from researching your life I feel like your degree in art history really helped you in a variety of ways I feel like you use it a lot in your profession I feel like your your your attention to detail is unbelievable I just be like all the things that go into being a history major specifically art history from the outside looking in to me it seems like it really made a big difference for you is that if I want but words in your mouth but is somewhat accurate it's completely completely accurate I mean I have probably a hundred thousand paintings in my brain and so all you have to do is say a year or or mentioned and historical happening or oh my goddess dear just wet hopping through backyards looking out the window and this dear just went crazy running through my my wow so beautiful yes and the other thing that art history taught me you know not just not just like what kind of painting was happening at a specific year or costumes were you know fifteen thirty Knicks versus you know eighteen thirty six but framing framing and chats skewer and light how different can't painting movements used light or were affected by light and so I think that that has been a great how should I say this has been it's been it's been very helpful to me because I will notice the light wherever I'm shooting because I typically am on location and wherever I go the lights going to be different so the light becomes a character and so I'm able to interact with the DP the production designer and say well the light is going to be very northern or it's going to be very direct from above you know because we're closer to the equator let's use a lot of brighter colors you know so the this wonderful three way conversation it's gets going and I really love working with other departments I don't like it when I end up on a show where everybody's in their own little double and doesn't want to communicate with any other departments because I feel like there's this great saying in the Arab world that a horse made by committee is a camel and it might be a little more on Ganley but it's a far more valuable animal to have in the middle of the desert right so I always you like I want to create the camel even though the horse might be more romantic if that makes sense definitely accents so so in your -perienced you find that it is a team effort hurt you just mentioned that the director of Photography and I have a few questions about this topic I'll kind of be jumping around a little bit here but like you find it's often you do so your choices right so is it usually are you working with cinematographer and the director and the actor or is it kind of just depending on the set how is it usually work for you Karen or like I said is it is it is it a case by case scenario it's really a case by case scenario a lot of it has to do often has to do with how much productions like how crowded RIPTA's like how much there is to get done I know that everybody tries to communicate and you know it's like I try to work with the production designer the set decorator and make sure that you know they're not putting up Lilac wallpaper while I'm dressing somebody lilac known all the standard things and I know everybody tries to work together but it depends you know it always depends on the combination of people You know when I did underground which is stories about runaway slaves the production designer the set decorator on the prop master and I we were like the foremost tears you know and like every ten minutes there was a texture assembly. I'm looking at this I'm thinking about this you know you know Karen here's The gun nature's packed can you make a purse that will fit the gun you know so she can the party carrying a gun in her purse that kind of thing it's always we're always trying to work together in some depth that's possible sometimes it's not an every occasionally okay you do run across somebody and that's just not the way they want to work and you can now no I prefer it when we do work
What Dead Historical Women Can Teach Us About Dating and Sex
"For a long time i rode a sex dating column for the the new york post and i really appreciate that time in my life but since then i started writing about history and politics and every so often often someone comes to me and says would you ever consider writing a dating advice book and i always say the only way i would ever do that is if all of the advice is came from dead historical women and most of it was bad do you say as a joke yes always and then i said it to this one very nice editor on the phone who said well i'd love for you to do that can you can you get it in by june and i said yes and it was the easiest book sale i've ever made shots jets incredible i was gonna say did you sort of like say on to channel these women and because it's all of the advice sound so much in their voice it's just it's so good i'm i've always wished that somehow that would happen to me robert graves deflected criticism of his i claudius novels by telling a reporter that the entire manuscript had been dictated to him by emperor claudius himself in a dream so we don't want to start with that's a real humble brag it's a real humble brag of london emperor came to me and just story so no critiques please no none of none of these women came to munich dream cream i do read a lot of different books about them and took the cool historical tidbits that i found those books that i thought could be transcribed into good good advice for women right now what i really loved how in the insure you talk about how there's always some idiot on twitter that's like oh i wish women were women the way they used to be back in the day and like this book just kind of disproves that whole line of thought that is based on many real only no i'm i i have a twitter account i am yeah i'm familiar with dot com yeah and this totally disproves that way of thinking because women's since the beginning of time have kind and not been that ideal idea woman i think the more things change the more they stay the same and a lot of women in this book are doing things thanks i think we'd be considered very audacious by modern standards i'm kind of fascinated by grace kelly's end of a first date move where she would go into my i room of this and come up with no clothes and that's the way a lot of nudity so nudity in the book i'm also that's something that i really don't associate with grace as kelly in any of her alfred hitchcock movies now i love that and so you use that tibet to have her advice be make your feelings no yes she's real clear a lot of not scared to tell someone how they feel and then a yeah and then you write about how she'd be like go make some coffee and then go into the bathroom and come out naked i was like oh that is insane that that is actually what she did and i love that it's memorable also really feel like a man in the nineteen fifties and sixties when she was doing this probably just think they were making can coffee so let's talk about some more of the advice in the book patra that is the advice for making the first move what can we learn from her on making the first move cleopatra made i moves of really big and she really began her relationships with this very showy entrance entrance a lot of the mist and the stories about cleopatra hinge upon the idea that she was this ravishing beauty and she was us an attractive lady and they're all different ways of being beautiful but by any standards she wasn't especially good looking she was just really audacious basis and she really went for it and when she first met julius caesar she header self smuggled to him inside a federal that was dropped off at his feet feet and then lays blade before whose feet talking about how they could afford to an alliance which is not a thing that you might be able to recreate oh yeah like not necessarily you didn't like UPS to your lover a little desperate if we'd be really audacious lake uh-huh and then when she met mark anthony she had herself taken to him on a golden barge where she designed it to look like she was a goddess and she appeared to him if she was a golden goddess so cleopatra really thought about how she was going to plan her first move oof and i think it an age where a lot of us are very timid and wanna seem cool and have a call me maybe attitude approaching people cleopatra went for it like she went one hundred percent i honestly can kind of relate this particularly i'm on the part on the barge where she's the gold god it kinda can because so nicknamed gone on a first date and then i invited him to my holiday party and my holiday party i was like the star of the show like i i was going around with platters appetizers and like jello shots because this was like whatever like two thousand nine not the shots wherever cool but as i'm going around with platters never like laura oh my god like laura laura and i'm like the star of the show and i kinda take her advice to mean you know just be like the starve make yourself an unmistakable store yes staple star like have the attention be around you and it was like all my friends and it was like my house you know like i was the star of my holiday party and walked around like own my own the place grid right and i want to form an alliance that woman yeah i think that's actually a great way to translate that into modern day advice i feel like throwing party and inviting boys who have a crush on was also so big move i was single gal it usually worked really well unless the person didn't come in which case it felt like you were throwing that party for nine uh all these people are in my house i've got so many shots yeah i've been to your parties and you do throw a very good thank you i'm so you also have a section on slut shaming can you choose to feature josephine baker and that little micro in every possible way hero of the civil rights movement hero of the lost generation yet josephine baker is just the best and if you don't know her by name you definitely know her by image she's the one that has the banana skirt so oh you're right i'm writing in her voice say i'm writing as someone who danced topless and a banana skirt so why her for the slut shaming section i feel like josephine josephine baker is someone who had to go up against a lot of repressive rules of the time and i mean to head to leave america because she couldn't really prosper in america's a black woman and she was someone who i wouldn't say that she had no regard for those rules but she he was able to think about societal rules that served her and once it didn't and follow her own contents and her own desires and mm-hmm she strongly felt and i think many modern day women should strongly feel that her sexuality and her physical desires were nothing to be ashamed of she had a very large sexual appetite she loved having sex with people she had multiple marriages adopted a ton of children those desires did not impede her life in any way indeed the fact that she was comfortable in her body and comfortable with her sexuality is how she she became a great star and it was also because she chose to change her circumstances right by going to harris yeah we actually just did an episode on on if you should move if you you should mirror for data and just for a change of scenery if you're like in a funk also tried to come back to america and change everybody else's circumstances stances andrea four really hard for that i mean you can't obviously say that any one person was responsible for civil rights victories but she had a really huge detained in that

I searched online for a way to find my offspring and discovered the donor sibling registry. I didn't see any leads there and never got around to checking back. I had looked way too early my project. He began to use the site to find each each other when they became teenagers. In the twenty tens a couple of years ago began seeing ads for twenty three and me a service that analyzes your saliva spit in a test tube and mail it off for analysis and provides you with information about ancestry health and DNA gives the opportunity was obvious but I I assumed the odds of finding my children were low. I procrastinated for months before curiosity and urged to know them made me order a kit mm-hmm. I got my results back and boom. I had a son Bryce.

They broke up years ago but had been raising both girls together until recently. When the other mother moved away away with the daughter she'd given birth to Justin I began to chat online. She knew a lot about buying sperm and self impregnating which was fascinating for meat alert as it turns out. It was more difficult than my role masturbating in Newark. She also no longer identified as lesbian in and was dating a man who incredibly had my same first and middle names Aaron David with a similar mono-syllabic last name. Had there been a mix up at the bureau. Eero boyfriends was either one who was supposed to be dating her. My children and I exchanged written biographies. Braces showed me how little I know of a young adult culture and reminded me that wants twenties are difficult to decade. matty's revealed a keen understanding of her upbringing in the parts of it. She would like to break week from but it was alice's entitled a series of Awkward Events separated by snacks that floored me her biography. A fee was a hodgepodge of lists and memories written under duress mom right or death favorite color black like my soul all favorite holiday Halloween because candy and murder.

This kid's eleven a plan developed for Bryce and Matty to come to Seattle for a couple of weeks in in the summer. Jess and Alison lived a few hours south and would drive up. I figured meeting my children was going to be the closest thing I ever have to a wedding. So I decided to host host a party I had told my news to a few people but most learned of it from the meet my kids party facebook invitation featuring photos of Bryce Mattie and Alice Alice the shock value was high genetics. Good luck or force of circumstance. I loved my children right away. They haven't uncanny any aura of Minas. Bryce is shy but sharp and obsessed with memes in a way I might have been had. I grown up gency. Alice has little use for adults colts as I still don't Mattie especially has my sense of humor and is locking gazes with her my brain explode but then we laugh at the party we played a nature versus nurture question and answer game and discovered we were all quite liberal and that none of us believed in God awed none of them however sleeps with a pillow between their knees as I have long done the first time Justin I found ourselves alone. We hugged at length in a way entirely inappropriate for people who had just met just says I have mannerisms that remind her of both her daughters and thus felt instantly comfortable with me aw whether we were pawns of fate or unwitting participants in a Chromosomal e arranged marriage Jessica quickly bonded. I deployed my bureau of boyfriends mix up line to a grudging but sweet reception during the vacation she and I easily fell into the mom and dad role for Bryce Mattie and Alice Alice. We soon had jokes and tease each other about our foibles just like any family. I even gave Bryce and Mattia lecture about smoking at the end of the visit. Bryce somehow managed to get jess analysis kicked out of the House. They were renting by climbing onto the roof to retrieve toy so I invited them to stay with me. Meanwhile they figured things out. What just soon figured out was that she wanted to keep staying with me. Alice roller is as if she'd been tricked into a traditional family arrangement while twenty-three in me is not generally considered a dating site Justin.

"Yeah. So one of them is among the most famous episodes is Ronald dolls, man from the south, which came out in nineteen sixty starring Steve McQueen and and in which a man bets his finger that he can start his life and times in a row. Yes, that's a great episode. Yeah. And Peter Laurie. It was ranked number. For forty one on TV guides. One hundred greatest episodes of all time. The episode was later referenced in remade in the film for rooms with Quentin Tarantino directing a segment called the man from Hollywood instead of his finger was feet right. You know, who knows probably cutting off the finger in four rooms is the only good thirty seconds of that movie. It's so no joke, like it's so well executed. Yeah, the editing is so tight. And so interesting in the build up to it is so good, but it lasts like thirty forty five seconds at it's perfect. Oh man. The rest of moving go, hang. So I think we, we tackled his biggest hits tackle everything, but we got a little bit into his mindset and some of the problematic issues which again, it's okay to talk about the problematic things of the things you love ignoring them is absurd. I think it's definitely especially when like, I'm sorry, it kind of influenced it. You know, for better for worse. So you, I feel like you do kinda have to in this situation, but no, that that was it. And that you know, let us know if you have some Alfred Hitchcock films that you love and definitely add a synopsis fort and where I can see it because offered dish crock ain't on Netflix. I don't know what's happening. Oh, also, if you are a Hitchcock head and you. I haven't been go on the tram ride at Universal Studios. They always stop in front of his office and it has his silhouette on the window and they're like, he used to, right right there. I don't know. It's it's funny because like you that guy went out to lunch to eat right. I mean, I can never work in in the office. I always do most of my work outside where I just want know like that I can understand if that's the building they relocated it, but that specific one right there. Yeah, we'll took the trim to it every day. We should ask her universal friends. They would know is the psycho house still there? Yeah, still that won't go anywhere. That's a joke about when Jim Carey was shooting onset. Oh, you, you haven't been on tram when they tell you start. So near apparently one time, Jim Carrey was shooting on the lot, and he got an address and hid in the house. And during one of the tram shows runs out with a knife and dress and freaks everyone out. And I was like, why can that be mine? I get that experience that was tight. I would love the idea of Jim Carey, just hanging out there still shooting over there anymore. I liked the idea of like there had to be a good fifteen minutes of him. Just sitting at dusk, probably. Rating. They're here now. I love it. I was gonna say, I know also if you're a big Hitchcock head, I guess hit up or any of these black and white film set up a leash Malone because she's the host over at Turner. Classic movies is constantly living that life. I think she wishes that she was back in that time..

That's a lot of shares to shares a Nike and I was going to say yes. So psycho was made on a very constrained budget of eight hundred thousand. Wow. Which even for the time was nothing. Yeah, yeah. It was a different kind of filmmaking for him. And I think that's part of why it became something greater than the stuff he had done leading up to it. Yeah. And it was shot in black and white on his spare set using crew members from Alfred Hitchcock presents. I didn't realize that he was doing that at that time that Alfred Hitchcock which also which which I was interested to read, and I'm not very familiar with Alfred Hitchcock presents because they were hard to find for a while, but that was just a cash grab for him also that he was sort of a name brand director and they said, do you wanna do TV? And he was like, boy, do I have to do to have to write or direct anything? There's a no, just just come in and introduce these things and put your name on. He was like done. I mean, why not?

This is to me like peak horror, like Pete. Scary movie this. I don't want to say it's not like gore porn necessarily, but it kind of is to have your eyeballs, like p pecked out by birds. When was the last time you saw. You are a youth, right? Yeah, yeah. I I mean, mean, it it was was like. like, maybe I was in my twenty s? It's not as gory as you remember it. Okay.

We'll look at that he's they are walking in each other. Well, he's walking in his footsteps. Also psycho then like there's the shower scene and you see blood going down the drain. It's somebody in birds. There is our pecked out, like, yeah, look it up. Damn, I'm gonna watch. In a long time, but I really think it is because you couldn't get away with that in nineteen sixty. I mean like not necessarily show, but I feel like they show them going at their face. There were a Tippi Hedren was pretty much abused on the set of this movie. She was a commercial actress that he saw and was like, okay, that's my next blonde that I'll be obsessed with. That's it's so crazy because you know, I it really speaking of like influences in Hollywood. And the idea of like the perfect leading lady is this blonde, blah, blah, blah. We have this directors like, that's all I want is blonds blonds blonds blonds and he happens to be this influential. It's like, oh, you did that. Would it surprise you to learn that his mother wasn't icy, blonde, oh, you know what? They say about moms or at least Freud. Yeah. We didn't. Even that has been Akers joke. I want people to no end on Twitter. That was my right in partners joke, but it was so appropriate. I did want to say because we didn't even say what the birds was. It focuses on a series of sudden unexplained violent bird attacks on the people, but dig obey in California over the course of a few days. I loved it. My parents used to show it to us when I was little too, and I just thought it was so terrifying. Yeah, it's a great scary movie, but it's a scary movie that young people can like kids can watch because it's not terribly gory what I love. One of the things I love about it is that the bird attacks are never explained like he was not interested in that and they saw that, yeah, they sorta throat like, well, it could be this or this at various points.

Are they both like deal? Yeah, that dealing with judicial prisoners. One is a holocaust movie, and the other one is a bad rich man. Okay. So the others, a good route. I guess that's what I got confused. Yeah, they're both great movies make no mistake. But on the other hand, I've seen it's wonderful life like fifteen times which is a better movie than both of those. I've seen them like, yeah, multiple Christmases in the last thing I'll say is you'd be surprised like it was funny because it was not like we were in the writer's room just like cranking out citizen Kane. Felt like it felt like as soon as they got married for some reason, there was a lot of citizen Kane jokes, so so it was very weird times I'll read. I would love a few to didn't episode about people's like gaps in nerd knowledge. Really fun. Oh, man, that would be a good like runner to do where it has like a flip where we find something we'd like I do bring in someone who's like a huge Princess bride Monty python head, and they just just dumb. I mean, this kind of what this is going to be full disclosure with Alfred Hitchcock which is why I'm so excited that you're jazzed on it because if we aren't the source of like excitement and knowledge, we like to have a guess on who is that source? Because that's what this is about is really just. This show is the equivalent of when you're getting your friend into something that you're into and you're just like this, then this. And so let's jump right into it and start off with Alfred Hitchcock's youth instead of that, can I make a suggestion? I don't have that thing that you're both looking at in front of me. Okay. But I think and I'm not so interested in biography of people because I don't care about people. I think the best way or Abe eight good way to talk about Hitchcock is to look at his three best movies because he made three masterpieces basically. Yeah, psycho vertigo and rear window and wait. I'm sorry. I said it now because I'm just, I got to let the listeners know what just. Danny was in full agreement for four time and was they were they were bonding and connecting on such a level. And then by the time the end of that list hit. It was like someone took a knife and cut that bond and half and they both shot a win from each other. And I was like, whoa, on the no one of those. Well, no, I totally agree. We normally like to give a tiny bit of the back story for the person and also we're clearly going to talk about the birds Ono. No, I'm not saying so about Hans because then there's like the second tier of great movie north by northwest is a great way, but it's not a masterpiece. Yeah. Get into that fits in to be honest..
"alfred hitchcock" Discussed on Nerdificent
"Was with him encyclopedia, knowledge of comics and like a true preciado love of all things. I is very hard for him to dislike anything, which is good. I feel like in the nerd space, you need more that like there's so much energy towards hate because good good rants get clicks, you know, good praises, get skipped. You know what? I really love about the show if you'll allow. Oh, yeah, of course. Is that you to celebrate the things you love rather than sh- taking to task the don't care for. Yeah, it's okay to kneel dropped like five f. bombs last time and I caught them when I was like up here this here. We need to bleep here Yeah, shoes. she was. She was going to hammer. I was all about it because you've heard Buffy. So before we even jump into Alfred Hitchcock, I'd want to give you a chance to kind of tell us about heck's wide. Let the listeners know what it's about, what their in store for. Yeah, I think I feel like if people listen to this podcast than they are into the stuff that I am into means they will like this book because it's like made of all the stuff I'm into the heck's wives is basically bewitched plus the stepford wives. It's about a powerful coven of witches who is being held against their knowledge by a cabal of men who fear them and therefore try to control them. So the first six issues finds them all of these suburban housewives, and they don't know that's there. Actually these powerful which is. So it's literal empowerment story. It's also kind of a documentary about America. Yeah, I was going to try and make that joke, and then you beat me to the punch line. Well, I will not shut up. Your show feel free to shove? Well, no, this is great because when one of these because everyone didn't get to hear you before you are so excited to talk Alfred Hitchcock and I will say as much of a fan I am of him, I am not versed in his catalog. Like, I think the ones I've seen his rear window, some of birds. Yeah, mostly by some birds. I mean that scene where she's in the phone booth and she's like no words. Actual movie. Yeah, you know, I skipped psycho and saw the sequel American psycho. I know I definitely want like I've never seen psycho. I've always been afraid to because I grew up out here so we will go to Universal Studios and we'd go by the psycho house in the music and scared me so much. I was always afraid to see the movie, oh my God. And then there was a point was like, I definitely need to see this movie, but then it was just it was before net flicks and then you know, then you get back logged. There's been so many nights have been like, I need to see all the movies. I haven't seen buckle up before we get into this. I'm about to make a few nerds fall out their seats and set down. Here's a list of like need to see movies. I have not seen yet. I haven't seen Princess bride. I haven't seen a Monty python, holy grail. To see someone go here to Monty python is hilarious because someone just like at first wasn't gonna fall out..
Jordan Peele is set to host Twilight Zone reboot
"Let's move onto the twilight zone you. We know that Jordan Peele is rebooting the series, and we have even speculated on this podcast. If you're peel would take over the rod sterling role as host, and now we have the answer to that, Chris. Tell us about it. Yeah. So a few months ago, actually someone in an interview s Jordan Peele if he would be doing, you know, not just developing the the twilight zone rebate, but also hosting it the way rod sterling do. And he said he was resistant to the idea, but he hadn't ruled it out. But now it's officially is taking over as the host of the show, not just the guy developing the show, but also the host. If people out there have somehow never managed to see the twilight zone. Every episode of the original series used to start with rod. Sterling, the crater. Walking onto the screen and basically giving a brief synopsis of what was going to happen. And it was always amusing because he would. He would literally just walk into a scene and no one would notice he was there. He was like this invisible man that only audience could see and now Jordan Peele is going to be doing that too. As he takes over the show, which is which is kind of cool in alpha. Think this is a smart from filmmakers perspective. I feel like like we've seen less of this in this day and age in back in the day, you know, you had Alfred Hitchcock host, Hitchcock percents, and you'd have, you know, even Steven Spielberg would come out and like introduced like a, you know, things promoting his movies. I feel like we see less of filmmakers being the front of their productions. And I, I feel like we're losing kind of the iconic directors. You know, we'll have the George Lucas of today. I think because of that. So you know, it'll be fun to see Jordan Peele who obviously has you know a place on the screen. As well as behind the camera who's this show,
