The Relentless Debate About Masks

"You tired of this relentless debate about masks about vaccines about the direction of the country. Yesterday tony foul. She was all played. A montage on yesterday's show of the the voice of leadership when it comes to covert and it was. It was a montage of his many contradictions but yesterday he went on his favourite network. Msnbc said the following the policy talking about is the masking in the sense of telling vaccinated people that even though two months ago sixty days ago the cdc came out with a recommendation that individuals who are vaccinated. Do not need to wear masks indoors or outdoors. Something has changed. And what has changed. Is the virus. The cdc hasn't changed. The cdc has really flip flopped. At all. what's happened. Is that when that earlier recommendation was made we were dealing predominantly with the alpha variant and the alpha verion when you look at individuals who are vaccinated that the level of virus in the nays of barons of vaccinating people might get a breakthrough infection that the level of virus was really very low indicating that it would be extremely unlikely that a vaccinated person who happened to get infected and that happens because the vaccine is certainly not one hundred percent effective. That would be very unlikely that they would transmit however now you're dealing with delta very which is really quite a lot more transmissible. Can you make sense out of that. You make sense out of any of that these. She hasn't flip flopped at all. He said we were dealing with the alpha variant. But now that we're with the delta variant the viruses. And i know that most americans right left or in between are accepting a word of that.

American Greatness Editor Chris Buskirk: Election Fraud Is Easier Than You Think

"Chris a friend of mine former white house colleague former co host of one of our podcasts. We call him a baron. Coined this phrase the freight train of audits across the nation. Is that accurate. Is that wishful thinking. You've been following this you and your team very closely at american greatness. It looks like something is happening. Now i think so. Yeah i mean. I think that the to what big odd is that people need to be paying attention to fulton. County down in In georgia and then. Of course the maricopa county audit here in phoenix. The ones that are are have progressed furthest. If you look at fulton county. I mean just to just to take one example of the joy. Say curious things that they have discovered down there what they what some people refer to as the so-called pristine ballots which are absentee ballots. Were counted in the in the count. After the election. They were sent in in theory. They were sent in As early ballots absentee ballots but in order to send them in. You have to hold them to get them into the envelope. These so called pristine ballots. Were never folded. There's no free. So where did they come from. It's these types of questions that keep coming off. See this i in arizona as well this this is why i have no time for those who want to waste precious energy on computer viruses. Data's femmes in italy and blah blah blah. When you've got thousands of unfolded mail in ballots. I think that's the thing you should with. I right chris absolutely right. I've been saying this is back in november. And you don't have to come up with some some very arcane Theory for you know something like a thriller on a netflix movie or something to see where where there were weaknesses in the in the system and where fraud could have. I mean again. I'm saying go back to the in the last year. You just have to look at the way people usually do. Election fraud right. I mean it's very very rudimentary. I mean you do things like come up with extra ballots and you just make sure that they get counted. You get control of the people who are doing the counting you know. It's these sorts of things that we That we have seen as just good old-fashioned ballot-box stuffing and i'm not trying to make light of it. But i'm just saying you don't need to have server farms all over the country you can just have people in place in ki key counties or and keep precincts and the next thing you know you have put your candidate over the top and i think that some of the things that we have been seeing coming coming out of these Coming out of these. Audits i mean that fulton county audit is really really amazing.

The Complicated History of The Rhine

"Our hearts are heavy. Knowing that the romantic views of castles and vineyards and germany's rhine river valley are overshadowed by the recent loss of life and flooding devastation. In germany and the low countries just downstream. From where we're talking about the following interview with tour guides tabby and ruger and nico fava real was recorded last year hot drinks so being. Give us a feeling for the medieval ryan which really created the ryan. We see today as tourists the most important trading river the with the romans already the problems with the rhyme began. It was widely considered that east of the rhine burien live. West of the rhine was civilization. And that's i went all the way through into modern history. France of course try to make for centuries the ryan its eastern border. The germans fought back and eventually of course that ended in one thousand nine hundred eighty. It's interesting when you think about it. That the ryan would have been a huge border culturally between the romans and the barbarians and from a french point of view between the french and the germans. Yeah so when you have a border like that nickel in in europe generally what happens it's Where wars having between. France and germany divorce happen then the ryan either stopped the wars or a lot of areas on the border especially in the french part of the border for instance. The elvas as region has been taken by germany. Many many times am so. It's a war zone between countries. So also been the war zone between religions catholics. Protestants fought over as yes in that area today. Even i mean today. It's kind of the border between catholic and protestant europe. Yes you could say that. Yeah north of the ryan is definitely more protestant. Now when you have the in the middle ages there was not a lot of Paved roads there is not a love law and order. If you wanted to get your goods to the market going down. The river was was one safer way to do it. I suppose it was a safe way. But you have to be careful of something. called robber. Barons who stopped ships along their journey but big chains along or across the rhine made the ship. Stop in and steal everything or steal everything in well amount of duties to say you've gotta pay ten percent of what's on your boat to continue down. Yeah i've heard this word robber. Baron castle so maybe the rhine river fabulous is sort of the quintessential example of a robber. Baron castle zone robot. Baron is a term in particular rob nights for a particular phase during the holy roman empire. Where nights had fallen so poor that the only way to keep the status was to rob traders and so on even if it was not their right to do so and eventually the problem became so bad that you had this middle class of nights who had fallen poor and became robust that the big tradings and merchants. The city's gathered union and under the emperor thing was the second thirteenth century or so. They sent this along the rhine to clear out all the rubber nights castles and literally hung them from the trees along the rhine

A History of Women and the Olympics

"So a lot of the story has to do with french. Feminist alice milia and her women's world games which took place from nineteen twenty two to nineteen thirty four and led the olympics leading women compete in events on a much wider scale. Yeah there's a lot of acronyms in this one so bear with us. The women's world games were yaas response to the international olympic committee's or the international association of athletics. Ias disdain and vera. I wave feminists gaining ground and a lot of women wanting to compete in certain events. Like the eight hundred batur track event events that did not recognize women or have been deemed unfit for women. Yes this eight hundred meter track of it. We're going to get into it. But it caused a lot of controversy when it came to women competing so at this time people and particularly in this context europeans or already talking about gender equality the term. Feminism is thought to have been coined in the eighteen eighties by a french activist by the name of coubertin claire around the same time. Baron pierre do cooper thanh who was also. French founded the modern iteration of the olympics. And the i o dagobert on outright opposed women's participation in sports and this bled over into what events he believed women could and should compete in when it came to the olympics. Day cooper ten allegedly said that the olympics were created for quote the solemn and periodic exaltation of male athleticism with quote female applause as reward. Wow he went on to say quote it is. Indecent spectators should be exposed to the risk of seeing the body of a woman being smashed before there is besides no matter how tough sportswoman may be. Her organism is not cut out to sustain certain shocks her nerves rule. Her muscles nature wanted it that way again day. Cooperstown reason that grow as no women participated in the ancient games. There obviously was to be no place for them in the modern ones. Which just as a brief aside isn't the whole truth sat really the point. But he's wrong. In general yes so the nineteen hundred games or the first allowed women to compete though not officially sanctioned twenty two out of nine hundred ninety seven of the competitors or women and they competed in tennis golf sailing.

Adam were talking about colts colt movies and where they come from what they really mean to us today and you know i wanted to talk about bad trip on the show and i couldn't figure out who to talk to about it and then i noticed that you were a fan of bad trip now. I don't know if bad trip. Is it going to qualify as a cult movie but it feels like it's in the spirit of some other movies that have come along over the years. Would you make of this prank comedy from eric. Andre the i ve very good time watching bad trip as i think you did as well which is an. It's an extension of what he does.

Dr voted also reminded me of the. We won't go too quickly into the cult thing yet that reminded me of jackass. Just in the extremity of it. I mean i happen to think jackass was very good for culture and probably belongs in the louvre museum and the smithsonian in the hall of fame is one of the great things ever for me for lotteries in But also just that idea of the body and extremity and feeling like something is both very kind of disgusting and unembarrassed of being disgusting which is kinda gets into the territory of cults. 'cause cult is all about taboos and breaking them in exceeding them. But you also want to be too pretentious about delay. This is a movie. Where to people's penises get stuck in a chinese finger trap or where people projectile vomit or just absolute insane exchanges in public spaces and maybe was just my mood. But i found it like just devastatingly funny from from beginning tent and laughed kind of the way i laughed at stuff like jackass and borough which is this very liberating

"How did you discover the uk version of the office. I was at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house. I was not an agent. I had left being an agent where i had found everything from who wants to be a millionaire to cracker queer as folk and had translated them into america as the packaging agent and i laughed. Backed by barry diller to start my own company called rally and i had just begun reveling in win over to london for a work trip and was staying at my friend. Henrietta conrad's house and we were watching television. And i was literally flipping the channels and i came on to the office. This is episode one or two okay of the uk season one office. Wow and i was watching it. I wondering if it was for comedy or for real than quickly recognized what it was doing single camera no laugh track faux documentary with people who felt real and i kept watching and started laughing. And it's really hard to make me laugh. And i was falling in love with the show in that moment and then i started thinking about it the next day in the morning and i asked henrietta if she knew ricky gervais as and she said no but her friend dan. Mazer did and we organized and had dinner with dan that night. Which are twenty four hours after you after you see it for the first time on television. You're having dinner with someone who could get you to ricky. Yes and additionally. I also wanted to be with dan. Dan was sasha baron. Cohen's partner allergy was on television. Was allie ardor your then no in the uk okay. But i'm with dan mazer yep. Dan is lovely brilliant in his own. Right and i start peppering questions about the office. And he gives me ricky cell phone number and so the next day. I call ricky around eleven o'clock in the morning and introduce myself on the phone and say i'd love to meet you. Are you in town. He goes actually. Yes me in soho at the starbucks this afternoon and i coordinate a meeting and i spent an hour with ricky talking about the office and very quickly we got along because we both love television and he truly was making me laugh even in those moment right over over the coffee at starbucks and so he clearly had chosen the location of the starbucks because he then says to me oh good news. My agent is right around the corner. Let's go meet with them so it was almost like he met me confirmed. I was okay roy. Conversation was interesting and then we walked over and met with dunkin' as his agent. And then duncan and i began a three month process to secure the rights. And it wasn't until dunkin. Help me unlock it. All that i realized. Both the bbc and ricky controlled the rights. I needed ricky and stephen merchant to actually get it done and agitate to get it done otherwise. It was never going to get done. Got it so you you deal with the bbc. And you deal with ricky steven. You have this partnership in place and where do you go into the united states. I immediately start making phone calls and saying. Are you aware of the show the office. Do you know what it is. Do you think it would interest you. And this is probably now a month after are so run. The show has started to gain buzz. It's aired its cycle in the uk. Its initial six episodes and so it has an awareness. Now it's a thing right not a big thing but to anyone in england it in the television industry. You're aware so. I'm i'm back at the states reaching out to people one of the incredible things about hollywood which was a huge advantage for me to do. Well was that people in hollywood are pretty insular and don't like to travel. They think you need a passport to get from burbank to beverly hills. That is travel and so many people at this time in american television had no clue connection about anything beyond la. Right and only one exac at the time knew what i was talking about was a guy named nick grad. Who worked at fx and he knew what the show was and he loved the show. Kevin riley was running fx. At the time. I'd gone to less mooned us he passed. I went to gail berman. She passed immediately. Didn't get it. Hbo said we'll never do a remake. They clearly have altered that thinking that that time they were like. We won't do a format and showtime wasn't doing shows like this right. I didn't go to abc. 'cause i just knew it wasn't abc. Right and i was starting to tease. Nbc with it and kevin than got named the head of nbc. And i bring it up to him. And i say would you wanna do it here and kevin says absolutely little. Did he know he was actually my only buyer that time. He was the only one right who wanted everyone else. All of television everyone else had passed. Now are you in kevin's like let's do it. Like let's let's make it. You know i'll give you a pilot movement and then kevin's boss though. Who is very involved in his life. Jeff zucker didn't really like it that much because it was his single camera. Nola back injury. I got it like it was a hard pill for them to swallow. I was also like they didn't want the game show back in prime time when i brought millionaire. Everyone thought that was cheesy. Daytime like no no. This will change. Tv know you gotta look at it from how to push the genre and pushed the envelope. So that you can expand versus always play for defense right and i was like this is another level and this is potentially transformative of television and with that can come great great

Biden Administration Gears Up For A Showdown With Big Tech

"Up for a big showdown with Big Tech. He's reportedly hiring too outspoken critics of Amazon, Facebook and Google for influential roles in the administration. They've both pushed for the government to get much more aggressive at reining in these tech giants even break some of them up. NPR Tech correspondent Shannon Bond has been following this, Shannon. What are these critics? A big tech that Biden is bringing on board? Who are they? So Biden has reportedly getting ready to nominate antitrust scholar Lena Khan to the Federal Trade Commission. And just last week, he added a lot of pressure Tim Wu as a tech policy advisor, who has advocated for breaking up Facebook and Scott, It's really hard to overstate just how big a deal these names are intact policy circles. They both have these very progressive views about monopolies and competition, and now they're potentially moving into these very influential roles as the government is investigating and suing the tact Giants. So we worked on tech policy in the Obama administration. He now says he thinks the tech giants have helped create a new gilded age, much like the robber barons did with their railroad and oil monopolies. Khan is just 32 years old. She made her name when she was still a law student for reading this groundbreaking paper about Amazon, and she's become the face of this approach that sometimes jokingly called hipster Antitrust. Okay, I think you're going to need to explain his hipster antitrust a little bit more. No con is critical of the current way that the government deals with monopoly power. You know, this is idea that the rules are really focused on when consumers like you and me get hurt. When we have fewer choices, we have to pay more for products and services. Tom says, you know, in the case of a company like Amazon. That doesn't address concerns that focus on other harms like those to the independent sellers who rely on the platform to make money, and she thinks Amazon should not be able to both operate this marketplace and cell is a competitor in that marketplace. Here's what she told NPR back in 2018 about the bind that puts sellers in that dependence means that Amazon gets too often call all of the shots. And I think that is often I'm quite harmful because that means Amazon can extract more and more from these cellars and that can affect the quality. And Khan has already been influential in Washington. She was advising this Big House panel on antitrust last year. They did this investigation. It found Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google all have really unfair powers monopolies. And we should note that all four of those companies are NPR supporters. I mean, this approach is just so different from even a few years ago, compared especially to the way the Obama administration Treated big tech cozied up to Big Tech when Biden was vice president. That's right. I mean, I think cozy is exactly the description for the relationship the Obama administration had with Silicon Valley. You know, it wasn't that long ago, these companies were celebrated as innovators. But you know things really have changed. Of course, the Trump administration was hugely critical of these big companies. It sued Google and Facebook for antitrust violations that something we're expecting the Biden administration to continue and we're seeing criticism of tech from both sides of the aisle. Of course, there are some people from the Czech world taking positions with the Biden, an administration that happened under Obama. But you know the choice of people like Lena Con and Tim Wu, I think signals a tougher stance toward Silicon Valley and that the era of scrutiny and skepticism what we call the tech clash is far from over the tech clash.

"I'm terry gross. Back with sasha baron. cohen. He's nominated for two sag awards and a golden globe for his performance. As abbie hoffman in the trial of the chicago seven which is streaming on netflix. He's also nominated for golden globes for his starring role in the film borat the subsequent movie film and for producing the film which is streaming on amazon. We were talking about borat when we left off to recap baron cohen's character. Borat is a dimwitted journalists from kazakhstan. Who believes a lot of conspiracy theories and racist sexist antisemitic. Stereotypes baron cohen takes the character borat into the real world interacting with real people. Who don't know he's a character. The premise of the new film is that. When borat i came to america he made kazahkstan look bad and as a result he was imprisoned and sentenced to hard labor in the new film. He's taken off the chain gang and sent to america to restore kazahkstan's reputation and give a gift to the trump administration so that trump will bring kazakhstan's president into the club of strongman authoritarian leaders. When the first gift doesn't work out bart decides to offer his daughter as a gift to the famous ladies. Man mike pence. So let's talk about the most famous or infamous scene from the film at some point. The attempt to give her to mike pence fails so nash is going to be offered to giuliani rudy. Giuliani and this setup. She's posing as a reporter for a right wing. Journalism group called patriots. Report she's going to interview him in a hotel room So let's start with. How did you get to the extent that you can tell us. How did you get rudy. Giuliani to agree to this. My understanding is that you have really long complicated release forms that people have to sign and a lot of people probably sign them without representation and don't read all of it but rudy giuliani is a lawyer. Can you tell us how you got him to agree to do this. Interview with somebody who was not a journalist for journalism site. That doesn't even exist. Yes i mean just i. In terms of the release forms. I mean for them to be able to stand up in court. They have to be easily readable. otherwise they wouldn't they wouldn't stand up in court so that obviously rudy giuliani. Signs are release form which is interesting because in that particular release form. He permitted the use of hidden cameras..

"Growing up in military school. He'd been taught at fighting. Battles was a good thing it would bring his family honor. He was very good at what he did and believed. It was a good thing. The people who knew manfred saw the war caused him pain whether this was because he lost friends her from harming others. We don't know exactly but during war he saw did terrible things and some believe deep down. He wasn't proud of it. Manfred described his experiences a pilot and once wrote i am in wretched spirits after every ariel battle. I believe that the war is not as people at home. Imagine it with the hurrah and aurore. It is very serious very grim. He also saw that. The war was going nowhere and realized that his side was going to lose and made him wonder if being a fighter. Pilot was the right thing but germany used the red baron's fame and wrote books and articles about him and often said many things that were untrue to keep their people excited about the war. This often happens with both sides during a war in his called propaganda on april twenty first nine hundred eighteen. The red baron was chasing a british plane over the psalm river in france when the plane of his cousin came under attack. Manfred pulled away to try and help his cousin when he did this. Hannah's plane were shot and went down during a battle. He was only twenty five at the time. Didn't survive the news about the red. Baron traveled around the world and hit go down in history as the most skilled fighter pilot of world war one and one of the most famous aces of all time. Many books and movies have since been made about the red baron and his prowess as a fighter pilot from this story. We learned that war. Is it common. But tragic part of history that takes place when countries don't find ways to work through their problems but turned violence instead the better ways for countries to meet together and come to agreements about how problems can be settled rather than going to war. In some cases arguments can be made for war particularly when countries are defending themselves trying to help another country. But it's always better if conflicts can be worked out other more peaceful ways where it. I often seems exciting for the young soldiers and pilots involved but the things they experienced can result in painful feelings such as the ones the red baron felt when he lost close friends and battle. Thanks for listening to this episode about the red baron and be sure to tune in next week..

"View and you see something dark coming toward you. It's an enemy plane. Wave your hand and motion to the other pilots. Then you hear the engines of the plane as they shoot down toward you you bank to the left as a plane racist by nearly hitting you you watch it dives down and then curves up turning toward you. The plane is bright. Red with black crosses on it instantly. You recognize it as the plane of the famous german fighting. Ace the red baron. The red baron's real name was manfred. And he was born may second eighteen ninety two and breslau prussia which is now known as the country of poland. His full name was manfred. Albert freiherr von. Rick often quite the name right. The friar part of his name means free lord which means his family was wealthy and had power in their community also called aristocrats because his family was wealthy which is another word for rich. He had lots of time to do his favorite things like explore the woods. His home play sports ride horses and hunt. He and his brothers learn how to use and take care of guns from a young age. Hunting quickly became one of manfred favorite pastimes in the woods around their home. He and his brothers hunted wild boar elk birds and deer and manfred became very good at it. He was taught at home until he was eleven. When he moved away to a military school and berlin germany which was common for children his age born into wealthy families there he became a cadet at the age of eighteen he became a very good horsemen and joined a cavalry unit which is made up of soldiers who ride horses. At this time world war one was raging in europe. This were was fought primarily between germany and great britain and france but austria hungary russia the united states italy japan and other countries had taken sides. The battles in france were fought mostly entrenches which were long holes dug into the ground or each side fired. At each other from a distance it was one of the first. Major wars in which machines were used such as machine guns tanks and airplanes. It was a very tragic war and many lives were lost on both sides. Manfred was in the army but because most of the fighting was entrenches his horsemen skills. Were needed so. He spent most of his time running daily. He watched airplanes taking off and fighting in aerial battles. Only eleven years before world war..

"He was really eager to get stugatz involved to get Barron involved. got a mean involved I. thought that. Went, really, well as far as the timing baron Davis kind of in anywhere he wanted to was like, Hey, I'm actually still here I'm doing this doing that that was the part that was a little bit cringe-worthy this how Baron Davis in the middle of that finally appearing for the first time in four days on my video of zoom call and thinking that we're on a national radio show that's televised just sticking his tongue out at me and saying here I am fat face here I am just use. The mentally useless men turning the screen off again immediately to just continue to step over people am glad that you mentioned the sinking ship. Metaphor there Anthony Because, yes jerry did come onto the sinking ship with a couple of extra lifejackets and then Amina Baron decided to turn on the fire hoses and add more water to the ship that was already going under I. Think I had a different experience I lit a cigarette after that I thought it was amazing. It was just a rush like I said to a mean before it's not great radio but every other feeling that can come of that comes you get, I'm scared I'm uncomfortable I'm excited I'm nervous like that interview all the Baron Davis appearances have made me feel and I, love that I beg to disagree I would say that is the definition of great radio if you give people a reason to stick around the comeback to walk more whether it be good or bad if it's good great if it's bad who cares as long as they keep listening and that was a ramp, you're listening to a train wreck Najib, a trainwreck h rain what at wreck that he'll get a lot worse at. Any given moment that was right radio bit. Do we think Jerry? O'CONNELL actually knew who was I feel like we didn't because he he started saying Yeah Idaho means I'm Stu gods and then he started doing the bad stugatz impression I don't even know if that phone charging story was real or not. I don't know with Baron and I don't think Jerry's GonNa tell baron that he's lying. So I think the Barron could have made that entire thing up just to see if Terry would go along with it and I still don't understand how charging his phone is saving his life but there's a lot there I thought was as best as could have gone because they're gone a lot worse than when. I don't feel like it could have gone a whole lot worse but I feel like it was good because of how bad it went I again, tell you guys that we have done a lot of time with Baron Davis and Jerry O'CONNELL, and we haven't gotten a single detail or story that we know to be true like we are just swirling around. This shit. That's what we're doing just swirling around day after day in endless shit people are actually wondering stugotz whether or not. This is a middle finger espn for taking an hour away from our show that we're going to steal back on August. Seventeenth and the answer is yes..

"All right, we're back. Charles I'm feeling much better. That my foot off the gas. That was just good advice. Well. We I mentioned Mark Twain and the only reason we're going to talk about mark. Twain for a moment is because in eighteen, seventy three he co wrote a novel. A satire called the Gilded Age Colon. Today where it followed a poor country farmer who is. Sort of I mean. Does he move to the city trying to get it on the Second Industrial Revolution? Yeah, totally. It's exactly that kind of migration that you were talking about just a few minutes ago. and. It didn't work out so well, right? I don't know I've never read the book, but from from what I can tell No, it didn't work out very well because he is taken advantage of by all manner of bad people like crooked politicians and crooked businessmen and is basically run through the ringer from what I can tell, but for I've also seen that that wasn't. It wasn't exactly the best piece of writing Mark Twain's ever come up with, but the thing is that he releases in eighteen seventy three. Yeah, and this is like at the very beginning of of the gilded age, so he saw it pretty quickly. What was going on and what he saw was this emergence. From a relatively egalitarian society. Of A group of ultra. Mind bogglingly wealthy people that just rose up from the United States and. Through you know cheating and business, Acumen and taking advantage of people, and over working people in underpaying people, but also like having a lot of vision and foresight all these things coming together. Grab control of almost all of the wealth that was being produced by the average American. All of the average Americans put together who had moved to the cities for the promise of better wages, better living than the farm could offer some people were exploiting that more than other people, and those people came to be known as the robber barons, and they were the Lynch pin of why people think of the gilded age as a rotten part of American history. Yes, here's some stats for you. an eighteen, ninety, the top one and this. Should sound very familiar if you're alive and breathing oxygen today right, but in eighteen ninety two top one percent of the US owned fifty one percent of all wealth. Yeah, dude more than half of all wealth. In that nuts, it is nuts, but you're right. It does sound very familiar the twelve percent owned eighty six percent of all white. And the lower forty four percent of the US population, which is about half, the population owned one point two.

Wars game is well Matt of what you said of people oh saw. Both of you guessed mustache. He ensured his mustache otherwise. Hitler witness stole it. Am My right. Matt, you, said the legs now to what Jimmy said. No, no. Matter the face the face. Yeah, my answer, my answer. The question was face. Legs are obvious, but you're wrong to Jimmy's point. This is an era we have to remember in which people who made movies are actually talented. Had abilities like being able to saying Lord. Dance Right Charlie Chaplin was a damn genius who was a tremendous dancer and he was creating. What a lot of us now know to be modern complex comedy. Today's because people like him right right? But the guy was a brilliant physical comedian. Right so off the thing about legs were dancing. I was thinking. It's gotta be something his legs, but let's not forget. This guy was writer and a director and an editor. Okay, he was doing everything he was a producer. He was inventing things. and He. Really, liked agent appropriate women right so then he also. Just trying to keep up with women network horribly too young for him. On top of being a dancer K.. So I think he ensured the thing that he needs the most in both of those situations. Kelly Clark said No. His news his knees. Knees very specific part of the League could've said leg out the leg part of the leg. I probably the whole leg but I wanted to say the word needs yeah. It's. It's the bee's knees. That's how much is to say it. Do you know my fun fact? Look on Trivia about Charlie. Chaplin's last, WanNa know I don't know that. I never spoken to you before. Her name is Pretty Muna O.`Neil. Can you guess her father was Eugene? O'Neill Eugene Region O'Neill was the father of Charlie Chaplin's agent. Appropriate wife, whom he disowned when she married chaplain the guys. He said it was wrong. Regardless chaplain a child. They Geraldine Hoop named Geraldine Chaplin a lot of my favorite. Latin language movies because she's grew up. She married a Colombian man by think. She's one of my favorite films. She had a daughter named ONA. And she goes by own a chaplain. And, if you're a fan of game of thrones. You might remember her getting stabbed through the pregnant stomach. A while it. A famous episode of that's right. Yeah, I, remember the time being like. Wow, that's crazy. She must be related Y. I saw the name I was like. I wonder if he's related to Charlie Chaplin then I looked at the granddaughter. Of Charlie Chaplin. Yes, she's angry. Great granddaughter of. Eugene O'Neill! Wow, what's the now? I can't remember the the the Stark Shushi married the not robb stark, but the other stark, no rob stark Robb stark. Yes. That's a chaplain. Her name's owner chaplain interesting. She's married. She's named after her grandmother. That's crews and her grandfather. So anyway, my answer was yes. I will tell you before you. My answer that I wrote down mustache. Cross it out because I thought it was mostly. I that was my first thought was mustache didn't be dumb enough to lock that in. But I chose Mustache and then got rid of it because it was a stupid answer the dumbest of all time. Okay. I ended up going I. thought that this is kind of. We're bear going when he was talking to how. Chaplain. Director writer a producer created things so I went with brain. That insured is brain.

Little waddle and all that bullshit, but that was the first thing I was going to say. I was like be feet now. That's dumb, YEA! Because he's so famous, for is physical comedy and aspect of walk, but I was like what part of the body is really responsible for his walk. It's not it's not the knees. With, you man I feel like it's feet. I didn't think it. Again. Chaplain does he keeps you on your toes little dictator? He was British sneaky foreigner coming in.

"Will you let together very often of course together together and he was always fun to be with. We went out to dinner with him in this city. Just the three of US my husband bread and I many times and and when we were with him he was just work late the latest tonight and then just go home. We got to travel together and be on that advisory board together gather and to lecture about the product together and it was a very interesting time and then of course. We did many many studies after that on every product. That's out now now. And so we got to see each other all these advisory Boards investigative meetings and things of that sort was very serious when he was lecturing or talking talking about studies. Who wrote those things that Dr Nerin's runs practices in both Manhattan and White Plains New York on her website? She boasts that she was the first doctor in the Westchester area to administer kyw Bella the first and only injectable treatment to banish double Chins. She remembers almost being two distinct Fred's serious Since obsessed goes home at eight Fred and then there was this other guy celebrity catnip Fred. 'cause he came on the scene somewhat after I did and he patients love and so and they were very loyal to him and they validated him. Any especially the stores. He treated validated his life. And in a way that's always dangerous and actually sometimes celebrities of the hardest hardest people to tree and the most fun is with regular people that are non celebrity but in any case these people they were damaged that this and favors listen very very lonely. It was exactly the same on Klein. Do you know what I'm talking about. No arnie Klein was much more famous. Client yes Arnold Klein King of Collagen. He named himself that I've done. This is a lot about PR and then the big problem is you start to believe the PR from imperative entertainment. I'm Justin Harman. And this is the baron of Botox episode five fame game In every industry there is a hierarchy and the beauty and fashion industry is no exception. I remember back in the beginning of my career running into a girl with whom I interned at in style magazine we were at a rooftop party. Drinking Vodka Sodas. She and I didn't know each other well but we didn't know anyone else at the party either. So we became best friends for the night. We were commiserating about our junior status in our respective corners of the industry. I was an assistant at public relations. Firm that represented actors. She was an editorial assistant at fashion publication. When she said something I never forgot? She told me you should magazine because when you do everyone comes to you now. This wasn't exactly the heyday of publishing that Valhalla of black cars and expense accounts and clothing allowances but it was over ten years ago. When magazine still brought in a pretty penny I was only twenty-three just barely out of college but I knew she was right? That my position which mostly consisted of creating schedules clients and functioning as behind the scenes nanny the and purse holder at movie. Premieres wasn't at the top of the food chain. In my limited exposure to the celebrity complex industry I had ascertained that the pecking order went. Something like this Celebrity Harvey Weinstein Agent Magazine Editor Manager Publicist as in their actual publicist hair. stylists makeup artists clothing stylists then comes personal assistant masseuse dog Walker acupuncturist dermatologists drug dealers shoe connect. And then me now. You don't need to understand the mechanics canucks of every level of the operation to know that being a magazine editor someone. A celebrity does not pay or get paid by is something of a seniority loophole. I I immediately made it my business to be the type of person. People came to for things and not the other way around throughout the course of ten years as a junior senior and then senior level editor at a variety of magazines. This loophole remained a constant. When you're in a position to give people a platform the distance between you and celebrities becomes much smaller? I have been in ridiculous situations as a result of having my name on a magazine Masthead. I've flown on private jets. Smoked smoked weed with an editorial rowdy supermodel and had dinner with the cast of characters so preposterous. I had to ask myself. Is this even real one in time. An hathaway sent my niece very tasteful bouquet of flowers for her thirteenth birthday but regardless of the title bestowed to him by the press. The Baron in of Botox Dr Brandt was in a precarious position. As a service provider to the stars he had all the GLITZ and glamour. That comes with being close to celebrities but none of the power. That's just not how the hierarchy works when your job is to make a famous person look and feel more beautiful. There are only two rules now rule one. Keep the client happy anytime. I did anyone hair no matter where it was when they got up up and they felt good. That's all matter. I don't care if they tell anybody. I honestly found that a lot of times when I was doing the most famous people. They didn't even want want anybody to know that it was me that did their hair because they wanted my attention rather than me giving it to someone else. This is Bryant Renfro. He's an old friend of Dr Brands. Who before making a career? One eighty and becoming a real estate agent out in the Hamptons spent thirty five years as Barbara. Walters personal hairstylist. I get Barbara's Barbara's hair even after she left. TV's two three four times a week. 'cause I was not only her cheesy. TV Hairdresser. I was her personal hairdresser. I cut her hair where I colored her hair. I did everything for thirty five years. Rule Two of Celebrity Service Provider Fight Club. Don't fuck up. The biggest thing about it is is no matter who you are what you do and I know this from being a hairdresser for so many years and climbing to the top of my Game this doesn't make any difference WHO's hair I ever did makes no difference at all. The person that I'm working with isn't happy then. It's not a good situation relation and other brand made everyone happy. He was always certain that they were happy before they left. There was always a guarantee. Okay that went with him. When your job is to make famous people look and feel beautiful? The stakes may be exceedingly high. But your position in the food chain test is it. You never bring yourself to the table. There's a way of talking around it because they're not really asking about you. Basically you're almost a psychiatrist and your doctor and your hairdresser and when you start believing that you're equal to your Client Ryan or patient than you've lost. We're in a service business. That's the hairstylist. Garin again he and Dr Brandt met in the early nineties and we're really close. They connected not only in the way they appraised beauty. I think that's why our connection was so tight because we don't see the the positive we see the negative but it's interesting. I learned that I by working with polly melon and Vogue and Glamour Glamor and all those magazines at the time way back beginning my career talking nearly seventy where when you look through the Lens of of say. Mr Penn Irving Tanner Avidan. You knew the girl was beautiful but you would look and say oh the collars wrong or. Oh the hair's too much or the makeup is wrong but our I went in that direction. And that's how I analyze. My clients are talked to models models or whatever. I'm always looking like. Yes you're beautiful. Yes that's working but we could make a better Garin. Dr Brandt connected in the way that they almost created these heightened versions of themselves for their clients to enjoy characters who reflected back the best of whoever was seated in their chairs but never brought their own baggage to the table. I came from a small town. He came from a small town. You become the best in your field or part one of the best in your airfield and then you start creating an image and you want to keep people you weren't brought up that way but you have this or about you. He was self self taught he was brilliant. My family was very modest but I knew that if I was going to make it in New York City I had to have something special. Their specialty was that I became severe so that I could. I had no hair so a shaved it and I wore very severe closed. Meaning I was was always in black and white or or black. I was never casual and I chose that route because I would come manned or demand and more attention by my client because they wouldn't be able to direct me. I could suggest something to them and they would take it like. I wasn't rude but it would be like if I said you should definitely have your haircut here. There was authorities behind. You had to become authoritive and Fred was very authoritative. But he took it in a different direction because he loved Colori love fashion and he always was be like all his clients would buy him this crazy gifts. I mean I mean like these great handbags big bags. You know the Louis Vuitton bag. The air mess bag this bag that and they would buy him beautiful amazing being things he would carry it around like it was just like it didn't matter don't oh it's just piece.

"I'm gene gottfried every June. I'm the director at Goop and I've been writing about and editing stories about beauty. I in Nagazine and now ah in the early ninety like Linda Wells gene. Gottfried Jin Remembers. The Stigma Botox had when Fred brant arrived on the New York City beauty. Seen it was something like a dark art or Voodoo hardly the kind of treatment of feel good or like Gwyneth paltrow's goop would be promoting alongside ethically sourced Kashmir and and nontoxic deodorants. Not that feel good reason. We're exactly the rage back. Then people were talking about both off in sort of recently come out as the thing and will always gonNA freeze your face and will you botulism and I remember I wrote about it my column I wrote about that experience. I think I grew up. I don't have to dig it out but I decided in the thing that you know that stuff is the most toxic substances on earth. People are crazy injecting it into themselves and then you know I see the result but I'm like wow it was the beginning of both vo talks. Also certainly my doctor brand Dr Brandt win over skeptics like gene with something other than science. His secret sauce she says was the way he connected with. His patients. Really good certainly in my industry really good hairdressers really good makeup artist really good dermatologists. I think they take a lot of whoever their client is sitting in front of them. Take a lot of that person. Energy like in not just on to Dr Graham similar sort of top haired violence or something like that where they're looking and taking in that person really fully to figure out what beautiful about them and very different from I think. Sort of leverage talents are like how can I pay. You know the thing thing I already know onto that person sort of make them look like a beautiful person. She tells me about this one time. She went to see Dr Brandt during a specially difficult period Korea in her own life his empathy during that appointment stuck with her. I remember when I got divorced. I came in and I knew I was getting divorced. He took a really long longtime to to say. You're going to be fine and this is going to be good. A dermatologist. Appointment is incredibly intimate. Thing you're right up in someone stays and energy and and you're talking about how you appear to the world and your insecurities and so yeah I do think that's why that memory stands out in my mind is because I know he did that with everyone wasn't just like going in and being like you need. You know those good he later was was like absorbing people's energy in a way that I think both beautiful and very giving but also would make life hard. I think from imperative entertainment. I'm Justin Harman. And this is the baron of Botox episode for Heart.

"Well come back when it's a different six bucks so I I wanted to create a place where I can be myself. Every comic can be myself self. I'm not telling them. This is kind of style of comedy. This is the kind of voice of the kind of things you are supposed to talk about. When you come up here everyone is themselves yeah and I just wanted to place where everyone can be themselves including me. That's great and that's what the whole point of the show is. The title is borrowed from a book from the Harlem Renaissance which it was a collection of authors writers thinkers of the time creating a place for them all to be exactly who they are so I kind of taken that very intellectual idea idea insane but what about some jokes and that's always got a big Gog does Dick Jokes in there and my rights but not not literal Dick Jokes. Yeah just the concept conceptual Dick Jokes just random silliness pin fifteen but so yeah that's that's kind of what the whole point of that is is just me thinking of things. I WanNa make for myself. Yeah that I like and that's where I'm going is finally in coming into my own place of Self Comfort Self Confidence Self Awareness Self acceptance. You know having to to to realize to recognize that what I do has worse and that you know as long as I am. You know it's whatever I'm creating is true true to who I am at that time yeah. I can't fail right. You know even if someone doesn't WanNa make I made it yeah no. That's that's kind of where I'm going. Yeah that's great. That's great yeah because it's you know the important thing ultimately especially now that there's not that much money in show business is is to be satisfied is absolutely is to is to. It's a short life. You might as well get the most of it well. If you're not doing stuff that you like yeah. What's the point. What is the point once the point now fatherhood is always a interesting topic to be and I wonder how this notion of a finding you you know a sense of permanence and a sense of place like how becoming a father fits into that. Did it inform it or does this this looking for for permanence inform your job as a father. You know who you are as well. Yes absolutely you know because the thing is that being father kind of has made ed me whether I like it or not see the things that I did not receive yeah having no father myself yeah and so yourself invented. I would imagine yeah and I I guess it's kind of like like we want to talk about what we WANNA move to a place for. There's a yard you know like these are things that I want for my son. You know what I mean like. Everybody is like Oh. Everybody wants their kids to have more than they had yeah but you want it for little baron to why not so. I kind of look at it like you know I get to do. I get to re-experience the sort of away my youth through him. You see the world through a child's eyes as they say which helps me kind of you see what just regular old plain old unfiltered unadulterated joy and happiness looks like yeah yeah and what it feels like and I go like Oh wait league. That's in me yeah. That's what I was originally before. All this other bullshit happened this word. I make more that for your kid yeah. That's a thing tabloid with me. It was always like there was so much I grew up with a lot of sadness and loss. I don't you know when you see happy kids without a care. You think okay yeah. Let's let's keep that up. Let's let's let's keep the bullshitted. It'd bay to actually go out and deal with it absolutely and you know. I mentioned Alfre woodard a little earlier. She gave me a tip on parenting longtime longtime ago even knew I wanted to be apparent where that I'm willing to incorporate which is just about like because I want my child to have joy of course but but at the same time I don't want him to be sheltered. Yeah you know what I mean. I don't want to call him. Hold his hand through everything yeah. Some things are the things that he has to figure out on his own and so oh shit I had asked her because you know there. Is that want to kind of. Sh- I keep saying shelter but you know you wanted to kind of put up some sort of barrier between your child at any negative protection yeah you want to protect them and so I asked her. How does she do that. How does she get around that. She did that with her kids and she said you know. I never lied and my children. She's like I will tell them version of the truth that they can understand it that yes but the thing is that like she's like. I tell them if they asked me this at five and we'll tell them what I think they can understand it five yes because they'll come back at ten and then. I can just build on what I already said. They'll come back fifteen and I'll build on what I said and I was like Oh. That's great so it's kind of like. I don't have to tell them everything but I can be like well. What does that mean. Let you know when you're old so it's kind of like it's not an also. I'm not gonNA do everything perfectly. That's the other thing yeah. China like give give myself permission to mess up because it's going to happen yeah absolutely and I mean your kids young but one of the things because I kind of I'm I said it before in the show like I didn't really have a model for a father. I mean my folks divorce and I was very young and my dad wasn't around a lot so I didn't. I didn't have a father model so I think I just basically was a mother like I just basically I just I do. You know I'm I mother my children. You know not as much as their mother does because I'm not a mother but I do think that like I sure do a lot more cooking and cleaning than a lot of a lot of a lot of man I know well. I grew up with my grandmother and my mother yeah so I saw two. Women do literally everything yeah. That's all the same thing I grew up in a house full of women. There just weren't that many men around you know if yeah so Ma comedians looked up to and like well do. I want to be prior to my son. I don't think so no no no being a father. It's in terms of making mistakes. got one thing that I found very powerful and because I just started doing it out of a sense of it being the right thing to do and it was something that I and I don't have much recollection whatsoever happening but when you fuck up apologize to your children. Oh Yeah tell them I'm sorry sorry I made a mistake and and I'll try not to do that again. You know and the other thing that I think about parenting. That's a huge thing is is you have to have respect for you children as individuals. You can't just you have to have I see so many people parenting their kids without any respect like treating them like they're some kind of animal that their training when I mean from the very earliest age they're autonomous creatures that you gotta give a little room to you know and and let them have their dignity and he's very and my son is very independent sort of a you know we have this babysitter who has children herself and she's very impressed uh-huh him. He's brushing his teeth. Yeah Yeah Yeah he's Berlingske wonderful. I have no idea of them. Just like that and he's like me to know i Mike there so many ways at my two kids are completely different. and they're one is one is responsible in one way and one his like confident in one way that the other one isn't it. Just it just sort of happens yeah. That's what I'm curious about your reaction. Yeah Yeah Yeah well well. We're getting to the end here right. You know we've done a really I mean. We talked about certainly where you come from where you're going. We explicitly talked about that. I think I the thing we talked about. What I learned. Even yeah we certainly did but I mean is there. I mean do you have kind of whether you call it. A mantra or kind of you know words words to live by any kind of is there some sort of idea. I know it simplistic but I mean. It's a fucking podcast what he wants from me. Yeah okay so that play drowning owning crow that I did when I got out of college is a adaptation of a play called the Siegel Anton Manning Peter Francis James aim shot the Peter Francis James. He's on Broadway right now. He's gotTa be listening. He's probably might be we just did it actually visit a play with him in Connecticut last year but he played this role tra- Gordon trigger I guess in our version but it's like he's as old writer and then the woman Nina whose nineteen is fascinated by music famous writer her she asks him. What is this. What is it like being a writer and he is trying to outline a her that it's torture and so when I hear this line it's Peter Francis James Him saying it he's like I see a cloud looks like old man's beard. I have to take note and I see a tree reminds me of a childhood memory. I have to take note. Everything becomes something else yeah. I'm a cannibal consuming my own life and I was like were like as an adult. I got because us as creators COMEDIANS writers. Here's we are constantly taking our lives and putting him through the filter. What bit can I get out of this so the thing that I have learned is is to live my life if I am always thinking about how to turn my life into material that I'm not living my life. You know what I'm saying absolutely. I'm always always putting this as a friend of mine was like Oh. She was saying my mom's turning sixty. I'm taking her to Hawaii. I'm going to get like ten minutes out of it. I'm like no just be with your mom in Hawaii. Why is Hawaii because the more that you live your life when you make the time later to turn it into something since you lived in it fully you'll have more to report right. You have more to draw from so it's kind of like at all times. You can't be making things you have to turn off the faucet every now and then live your damn life as well as you can as honestly as bravely as you can and then when it's time to turn it into jokes turn into a script turn it into a painting then.

"Match at night of champions causing roman reigns to actually lose and get the victory and daniel bryan smiles at roman reigns and after a clash of champions on smackdown on daniel bryan says it was him it was him all along it was me austin and he did it for the rock just kidding. I think that we should tell a story that he sacrificed himself for the greater good that he allowed the pain of eric rowe in to be inflicted upon him right. This isn't some. I'm like fake beatdown. He allowed eric ruin to beat him within an inch of his life because it was that important to to get under the skin of roman reigns and that's what he's going to do to roman reigns. Come hell in a cell. That's how i see. It and that's how that's how i would do it but that is to say i'm usually right and i think i'm right right about this. By the end of the year there will be and it's growing the level of barron corbin appreciation is growing and growing up and that's why i think that the by the end of this thing by the end of the year baron corbin it'll be this more knowledgeable whereas for a long time the internet has been against baron corbin urban to the point and i asked him about the goalie heat stuff but to the point where for a long time especially in that run with seth rollins i think when the constable run where he it was on raw. You know many segments per night. A lot of people were just saying he sucks right that he was not good at what he was doing. They're saying he's not a good. He'll even now. I mean there. Are people saying that every match that he has that's good. They say it's because of his opponent cedric alexander took him to a good match ms took him to a good match every match these he's in the other guys taking into a good match. Somehow rollins took him do a good match with okay. It's a lotta people taking him to good matches every single time that you wouldn't give him any credit for that but i believe that <hes> fans are opening up to baron corbin. I believe as the constable gimmick starts to shed and we don't see the business casual attire anymore. I believe that his bad guy work will start to be very much appreciated by the fans and i think it'll get to a point point where baron corbin gets booed but really people like him. You know i think that that i i absolutely think it's going to happen and i'm putting it on record that i was here. I i knew baron. Cohen was awesome and you can go back on this podcast. I mean for years literally years. I would have arguments here on the state of wrestling with katie lindahl about how great barren courtroom was when he was in annex t. I'm not bluffing. When i brought up the annexed he promo that he did when he said you guys has busted your ass for two hot dogs and a couple of water. All i did was make a phone call and i got here and i remember on this podcast when that was happening in annex t ah i was arguing. The baron corbin was an amazing bad guy because that story is the antithesis of the romanticized version of what success in annexed he he is and he made people buy it made people believe it and that's why people booed him so much. It wasn't because he was boring. It was because he hasn't earned it and the reason the people thought he had an earned it was because that was the story that was being told and i think a lot of that is rubbed off onto the current day main roster stuff but as time it goes on and baron corbin continues to get better and he continues to have good matches. I think that that wrestling fans are going to have no choice but to acknowledge college..
