We just saw this like friendly looking who was wearing this very cool hat and standing outside getting coffee and she came up to us in and you're a huge fan of the scam and when we realized it was you I think we both like didn't even know what to. stadio. So I think it goes to show like you have such a friendly personality and. That makes everyone feel comfortable in talking to you and is also harshly how you are able to talk yourself into any room in in your early days of your career, which we're GONNA get into. So let's start off with our standard first question, which is Skim your resume for us our. Newspaper Out McDonnell's what did you do at McDonalds? Everything. I started with like cleaning toilets and sweeping the parking lot and then moved up to making burgers it Max then at fit. Two years of fit graduated in turned beauty companies. Always wore is shadow since I'm little kid went to work in the industry or selling makeup behind the counter spritzing fragrance bloomingdales in New York City in macy's met my husband at macy's while I was working behind. The counter is part of my resume I know it's a career thing is he's he's important. Did he keep coming back or did he like ask you on a date while you were working at the counter? All right. So I worked in macy's and part time because I was going to school and his girlfriend who's really cute. Girlfriend had the same shifts that I did like. He they lived in Brooklyn together and he would come in. So she didn't have to take the subway by herself at nights. and. That's how we met. We I I never knew the story Oh my God. So he would he would come. He was so sweet I kept asking do you have a brother friend and he did hook me up with friend once that didn't work out but it wasn't until they broke up a couple of years. Later he got a number and called me so what I didn't break any relationship. Okay. That's a good story though. Okay. So keep keep going macy's macy's then got a job at Halston Orelon you guys probably don't know a Halston, the fashion design end ud line I worked there for a little while then the big job was working at Max factor and then we were acquired by Revlon and moved to La? The company Max factor acquired by PNG and moved to Hunt Valley Maryland Maryland Baltimore had a baby in Maryland that was the best part. Of Maryland then we moved back to la because Keith wasn't digging Maryland so much whatever, and then he became the state Dad didn't have a career anymore after that I ended up being the breadwinner starting the kid was born and then were worked neutrogena. And then San Francisco in here we are what is something that people can't Google about you that we should now. Aren't. So here's the thing to that I. Don't have a Wikipedia page. My team for years wanted me to build one, but I had this issue with being. Out there. So I don't know what's out there and I'm very uncomfortable with what's out there. So what would people not know about me? That I can play the harmonica and hula-hoop at the same time. Did you do that growing up? On hula-hoop for sure the Harmonica, I learned as an adult. So I have a hula-hoop now as an adult that I use regularly. So then I just combined two gifts that I have. You write about a quote kind of stuck out at me. The quotas get desperate I wanna dig into what that means because I think you know when in reading about your story like we've gotten to know you a little bit over the last year or so and I knew the high level part of your story. But in researching for this, it don't think I really could appreciate her understood how you really got your foot in the door and so I want to understand what get desperate meant for you. Yeah I think for me. I always had to work hard to get noticed it in everything I did and I think number one is my parents were divorced when I was nine and we were left with her mom not that there was a bad vanishes that she was the the strict one the tough one. So I was always like driven to please her with I think a lot of kids have that too. She was never quite one hundred percent. Happy. So I was always trying to please her. So I was always going above and beyond to get the grades and to get on the teams and that type of thing because I wasn't. We didn't have a ton of money growing up I had to be creative. So by the time I went to two years of college and I. My first two years. It was rough because it was my first time being outside of my mother's like grip. So kind of had a little bit too much fun when I realized that I had to. GET DOWN TO BUSINESS. My mother helped me figure out what my passion was. I UNI but couldn't get in to fit I couldn't get a job behind the beauty counter, which is what I need to do to get into the cosmetic program and I had to so learned that when I'm desperate when I can't seem to find my way is when I get most creative by when I'm at the bottom feeling down instead of being depressed for long periods of time I just started thinking what would I do in little steps to get there the story I have in The book is about Bloomingdale's I. wanted to work there really did but they would not give me the time of day because I had no experience on mcadoo, you have it if you don't get it the only solution to that was to just be in their face and I thought without being too annoying I'm GonNa go to the buying office. I'm going to go there every day every morning I know when they come in because the first time I went and it was a very narrow hallway. And I would smile and they would have to brush past. We had to literally touch audience for them to get by, and they just saw me every day and I think you don't persist Internet way just. So dedicated to your personal 'cause I had no choice for sleeping on couches I didn't have a place to live. They said. Why don't you come in? We'll find something

Stephen Wright on 'Processed Cheese'
"Is the show most excited about. I've been excited in anticipation of it for a long time. The author Steven Wright has been on bookworm twice a four. I love his work and it takes him the Gourd zone time to complete it. I've been waiting for his newest novel which is called processed cheese and which is published by Little Brown. Oh for around seven years and as I read it I wanted it to never be over. I wanted to be reading it forever. I think like Stevens other books. It's made out of sentences and a feeling about the world that's completely his own knowing. No the title processed cheese. Stephen has been with you for a while. I've been wanting to write a book with that title since I can remember so. I finally did the title game before the Book Way. Back when I was sixteen. One of the things my father did was to make cheese board sees pieces of wood which cheese was attached under plastic at first when it started out like most American things they were real genuine supreme vintage cheeses but as things had to be less and less expensive to be made. These cheeses were replaced by process cheeses and the expensive store. The same bloomingdale's that sold the cheese board was replaced by five and ten where you could get. The junk is on the junk board in the junk rapper. And that was what growing up in. America was light during that period that was UAE. May Be we needed the sixties so when. I saw your tunnel processed cheese. It meant so much to me about the end of quality and the beginning of junk in my child he read it exactly the right way. That's terrific now. Tell me this is a book about as one of the first chapter says money money money money money money money. It's about the replacement of everything by the need for money. And more money and under funded coppell find that the husband has been hit by a bad. Were walking down a street. The bag is filled with hundred dollar bills. Which are wrapped in plastic packets? He suddenly got more money than he or his wife. Ambience know what to do with his name is graveyard. Her name is Ambien. Stephen Word of these names come from. I wish I knew they just. I don't know where they came from. The thing is that when they occurred to me it just seemed absolutely right that these were the right names for these people so they stock all of the names of the people in this book are based on industrial processes or Johnke. The city's the places are named things like random Burg this is the world that's died down and been replaced by the equivalent of processed cheese. John Exact has replaced everything. Yeah that is the theme of the book. Yes now the book is so funny. I mean you'll pardon me laugh out loud funny I laugh out loud myself sometimes thinking about phrase or line yes so that's pretty pleasing when he can laugh at your own stuff even years after you wrote it. It's a hung aureus book but a book. That's hilarious about a tragedy of life. That life does not feel like life anymore that life feels like its own version of processed cheese. Yeah exactly how do you live while riding such a book? It's Day by day. You just get through the day like everybody else. You know you get through each day as best you can but. I need to tell my listeners that Steven Wright our guest is the author of five books the first one was called Meditations in Green. It was the first major who Gustav Nation of Vietnam. The second book M Thirty One was a family romance. I pointed out when reading it that it seemed to be based on the nightmare. Gatherings in Faulkner's novel sanctuary. But you don't have to know that it's a Family of people who believe in Outer Space Aliens going native was a book. Oh Stephen I really was barely out of my twenties. I was given this show to do and I asked someone. I think it was an beady. Who SHOULD I meet in New York publishing? Who would help me to know how to go about doing books on my show and she sent me to the man who turns out to have been your life long friend and editor Michael Pietsch. Yes he gave means three chapters of the then unpublished looney tunes novel going native. I say gooney tunes novel because it has on its original edition a big looney tunes series of circles you expect bugs to be poking his head through And I then spoke to Stephen when going native came out the amalgamation Polka imagined that southern scientists were able to change the color of the skin of the people that they wanted to amalgamate. It's a bizarre disturbing novel. That reminds me of Herman. Melville's peer or the ambiguities. Steven Wright did me the favour of teaching me. What the word in that. Some title Pierre or the ambiguities means. Tell US Stephen. The subtitle is Pierre or the ambiguities and it turns out that in the nineteenth century. That was a phrase that was used for someone who lost their mind. He's got the ambiguities. Isn't that amazing? I did not know that 'til I was done with the book. If I had known that I would put it in

New York City We grew I grew up in the Bronx and he had like a lot of other First Generation Jewish families whatever he worked in the garment business. He worked By buttons and piece goods for coat manufacturer named Jill Junior and my mom always worked. She was ill From Twenty eight years old she had cancer and passed away.

Who Live down the St and three of my mom's sisters so as an extended family well it was the y m h a a young men's Hebrew Association? WHO's in the South Bronx Bronx? I went to overnight camp where she was a secretary for the summers At the camp camp because she worked it was affiliated with ym Ha and growing up. Did you think you would go into the same business. Your Dad was well I I didn't think anything as a kid I I only worried about. I worried about a lot of stuff. 'cause I was a worrying kid but I didn't really think about what I do who I always dreamt that my dad would be a successful. Because that's what he talked and dream about he talked about always Wanting wanting to kind of de successful he never was by any measurement Successful at what. He did He worked for a kind of a boss who you know. I heard about all the time who didn't treat him as kindly maybe As he might. That's true a lot of bosses and he wanted to be. I'll use the word big shot. Now this is in the sixties in the Bronx and So I didn't really know what I wanted to do. I had no idea it would be the garment business But I always worked starting at a young age my teenage years going because he kind of forced me to go into work with him on holidays on Saturdays Saturdays so I went to work for the coat. Company ticketing coats a Aaron's the shipping carrying samples to the other people in stores etc.. Did you know Ralph Lauren. Growing up because he grew up in the Bronx right. He was on Masha Loop Parkway. I was Barnes Avenue He I went to high school at Bronx sites across much Lou Parkway did you do you remember when he hemas coming up in the late sixties. I remember him exactly. 'cause I always followed people who did things that I admired. I was at Bloomingdale's started Sixty nine working at bloomingdale's and I remember Ralph. I didn't know him personally. But he came in selling selling wide ties to the men's department and it was like revolutionary and so I didn't know him but you know because I worked at Bloomingdale's I A new people who bought ties from him. So I always looked at. Ralph is someone. I admired immensely. What he did and at Bloomingdale's did you do the retail program? I know a lot of the department stores used to have these great training programs. Very lucky. In the sense first day was in housewares. I couldn't stand it I was trying to look for pots and pans. I knew nothing about it and I was Kinda lost. And the second day They moved me and this is my second day of my right official career. They put me into a department of junior department was called the Lexington shops. I was the buyer I actually went to the market every day. A No supervision really knows days and I. It's changed so dramatically you didn't have someone breathing down your neck. Tell you what to do so there I was twenty three years resolve. Whatever and I had a department Lexington Juniors whose only in fifty nine th street and I was in charge of buying all the merchandise. I had a really nice boss Stanley Stern. He left me alone. I had two or three really hot items and you make a lot of money on hot items Elephant Pant by Arthur Arthur. Bell was my hottest pant. The world's a cuffed big elastic waist pants every day. I was rewarding like crazy so I did that for six months because Barbara on jr was on maternity leave. Unfortunately she comes back and there. I go to the branches so I did that for a while and then I was promoted back In to fifty ninth street Iran. A woman's swimwear our T shirts and sweaters. My first buying job I they say I was like. I did it really quickly and again there. I was pretty much on my own as most of us were learning the business. I was very fortunate. I had a woman that he katy Murphy who passed away a young age. She was a fashion Shen director and knew more about the business than anyone I knew but because she was a woman She wasn't the seal. She could have positioned set set. She just got it and I was very lucky to have her as I kind of her pet. They treated me like oh go out with Katie went to Europe together. We bought together and only in hindsight that I realize that the fundamentals of what I even do today I think was set in place by Katie. And I going on these trips and we've been buddies so if I had an issue in work I ran to Katie. Not My boss. What do you think of this Katie? Anyway think of that and you know you don't realize you're learning so much everyday idle huge learning curve and so I did that job for a year and a half then. I was promoted moded into the boys area and then maybe it went up to the branches again. Then I quit and you said you had a couple of hot items. What what what does that mean? And how did you identify them. Especially back then when you were just starting out. How did you know that something was gonna hit? I think a lot of what people do. Who is kind of a DNA? Instinctive nature not nurturance much. I'm not sure but I always like I used to sell When Wilkinson Sword Blades came out I was in eighth grade? I was working in the garment center. I was young I was as a kid and I used to get a supply of them. They were really hard to find. They were the best razor blade. Hello in the sixties and I bought supply and I told them to when I made deliveries. I Have Wilkinson Sword Razor Blades. I didn't think I was an entrepreneur. I didn't think anything I could. Maybe maybe make some money and as a young child I money. My father's will obsessed about money because he never really made it. And I think I picked picked up some of the habits of wanting to have some safety and security so that was a little safety and security to keep handle drawer with my cash in it. I saved it. I never spent. It was not much to spend on very impressive. I wish I had a drawer with cash while it was like ten dollars dollars wasn't like a lot. So why did you quit bloomingdale's and what did you do after that. You know it's interesting just to step back end up working at Bloomingdale's I had a summer job at a NS. Now macy's and I fixed them up with a friend of mine I loved. I summer there so I was ready to be hired and I fixed them up with someone. I went to school with and they offered him five hundred dollars more in salary I did now. I didn't think about I was furious. I fix them up. They offered me eleven the offer him eleven five and I am crazy. Furious and You know I didn't have mentors like everyone has a mentor today. I couldn't talk talk to my parents about that but I was pissed off and I interviewed at Bloomingdale's and decide it and it was huge important decision in my life if the second most to that date businesswise and So I decided to work at Bloomingdale's they offered me eleven five. I wasn't negotiating a lot of great negotiator gator salaries and all that stuff and I went to work at Bloomingdale's. Ns would have taught me a whole different way of doing business. Sale Promotion They they were very successful But you know it's funny. So that kind of infuriated me any. Why'd I leave Bloomingdale's I got to the point where and you don't have to make a living and I said this is and once I moved up a little not a lot. I start to think about two things one. I don't love it as much now. I had the boys area and I was supervising but more importantly I always wanted to have really important in regard for people. I worked for Maybe it was my expectation and I realized that you know forgetting what titles are that. At at some point you know people get promoted without earning. The promotion and big corporations was like a huge corporation was big bloomingdale's relative to what I thought of his big back in those days and start to realize put your time in to a degree if you're older than me or whoever you may get promoted moded and I looked at the surroundings and who was moving up and I I I wanted to change someone. One recruit someone at macy's recruited me add Finkelstein who was then the chairman very charismatic guy. Recruited me I left and I stayed at macy's year and a half why because I was obviously looking for something I wasn't getting in a department store business. My last last movie in a Department Store Business was bloomingdale's was owned also a NS federated department stores. They recruited. It'd me back and I went back the stake but again I didn't have the freedom of I'll just do whatever it wasn't like everyone to start up. I you know. In those days who did startups who can raise money to pay the rent and I went to Ns for four years. And I said that was

"M j and here's the deal Bloomingdale's is selling a t shirt fake news on. That's all it says, it doesn't have a journalist with a new surrounded Necker, whatever. Well, anyhow, some thin-skinned reporter sees it in the season. And just just gets all upset. Well, I can't believe that you are selling. This is terrible the industry organization, then wades in saying we demand that Bloomingdale's pull this without understanding the irony that people who make their living under the umbrella of the first amendment, you know, maybe they should support the idea of freedom of speech. Well, then Bloomingdale's ks. Oh, we don't want anybody to find it offensive. And you've got these snowflake reporters who don't like people saying fake news, and yes, we're going to pull it. We apologize say nuts to that four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. Let's see on our Facebook comments. Offensive some it's offensive to me that I don't have a choice of wearing the shirt. Yeah. Well, that's that's that's what kind of the first amendment is all about I understand you can cross the line. But apparently, you have snowflakes in the media that are so upset that they can't even tolerate the term fake news. All we need to go into one of our quiet rooms, we need to have the safe-space because somebody might disagree with the way, they do the job and to me again, this isn't about whether you think the media is biased or not to me. This is the ultimate first amendment issue. Should somebody have the right to wear a shirt like that that expresses their opinion? And what about members of the media who now are so thin skinned that they want to quash other people's rights to express themselves. Let's talk to Danny in west Allis, Danny or WTMJ, Jeff, Danny? Just you know, I I don't feel comfortable listening to you anymore. Because you're you're going ahead and your your reporting about this. That's about as well. All right. It's the political correctness. Oh, I can't believe that people. I I I'm just offended by this idea this concept now, thanks to Coffey. That's that's the whole idea. Look, and that's what I started this conversation by saying you can carry this too far. I mean, the the confrontations like I say last night's some guy got tried to get physical with a BBC reporter at the Trump rallies that that's clearly out of line. But can we not express ourselves anymore? And what does it say about a news media that is such a group of snowflakes that they can't even stand this old people that wear this fake news stuff? They're they're calling out our ability to do the job and they're insulting hardworking journalists et cetera et cetera. Aright maybe they're right. Maybe the wrong. But but don't you have a right to express yourself? Let's go to the text line or number four one four seven nine nine one six twenty Jeff this goes to show that we have elite minded people that feel threatened and whenever they get some push back from the little. People. Yeah. That's it. How how dare how dare the great unwashed? Those Trump supporters might even want to express this particular opinion. Like, I say, I don't care whether you think they're right or wrong. It's it's a t shirt for goodness sakes. And you have you have reporters you have these so-called journalists who are now so upset and so thin skinned that anybody would dare to express. This Todd writes said Jeff media's thin-skinned for sure doing something like this shows how self conscious they are if they have nothing to worry about why get all upset if you're confident your profession the job, you do you don't worry about what other say your work or lack thereof will speak for itself. Yeah. Yeah. Somebody else takes this is basically a Trump shirt. Well, okay. That that that might be. But is this now if that's the case is this now going to be the standard that the media is why I don't think that people should be able to distribute Trump shirts. Four one four seven nine nine one six twenty David in Green Bay, David your WTMJ. Hello. I just don't understand the teacher companies whoever benefactress or obviously looking for. Could item at finish L clerk? I get a lot of people to buy it. As the non politically just as well. There's a lot of teachers that have. Oh. Sexist undertone. Any different ways. I guess I don't see the deal. We'll write it. And by the way, this isn't a t shirt that has double entendre. This isn't t shirt that has sexist or racist overtones. This is clearly a t shirt marketed for I don't know people who who perhaps have a particular perspective. But if you're if you're a reporter, or you're a TV personality, shouldn't you be able to to take it means. Should you be so thin skinned that somebody says, oh, you're wearing a t you're wearing a fake news shirt? Oh my gosh. You know, you you need to go to therapy because somebody thinks that you're prompt promulgating fake news seems to me you should be tougher than that. Seems like it all praise and in the brand new phrase that all of a sudden people get offended over center for at least a couple of years. So. I think people understand what it means of. What is not something a new concept? Yeah. Right. Right. Exactly. And at the end of the day. It's a shirt, Peter since we text, you know, something is fake news fake this. And you know, there's a lot more people out there that take fake news. Everybody has a right to say what they like as long as it's not threatening. Somebody people's have gotta stop being so soft skinned on anything. Well, I mean, that's exactly right. If this t shirt were were threatening. If this t shirt were promulgating violence, I would have a different perspective on it. But this is this is just this idea of fake news. And you have the mainstream media that is now so uncomfortable with this whole concept that how dare anybody anybody say that anybody challenge as well. The reality is that that that is that is what what's out there. And again, I am taking this. I take no position on on the job that the mainstream media does or whether you know, President Trump has decided for his own purpose. Is the villain is members of the mainstream media because to tell you the honest truth. The truth is in between it really is there. A my opinion there are reporters who loathed President Trump, and who have an agenda, and they are out there promulgating that agenda, and there's a lot of other reporters who are just trying to do their jobs, and they're they're calling them like they see it. So I mean, it it's like anything it's a it's a mixed bag. But do we really or or should we have people saying well, all right that you can't even wear this anymore? Because certain members of the media are offended by it. Nin? Bottom line is rule of life. Number one. Life is tough get a helmet. All right. Thanks for participating the segments going to be up.

Even the decision to keep quiet, and she talked about my coach. Well, I'm not sure you're gonna agree with this. But she's she said the political climate and the president and the confirmation hearings all contributed to her wanting to talk about the subject, I don't even know if I would have written that piece if President Trump hadn't tweeted that Friday night of you know, if it was so bad, or whatever you said, why didn't she report it why didn't her loving parents reported?
