"Purcell in Happy Valley I think it was called the dorms those those beautiful non air conditioned sorry guys aren't listening and maybe it's everybody knows where was I before meadow mount talking about like what are you talking about a going tomorrow Bruin reconnecting with David soyer French Horn player she was in the US Coast Guard band and in the Hartford symphony so she quit and so shortly after after I met her I won the of people talk a lot of smack about Detroit but I'll tell you this it really gets under your skin in a in a good way at Detroit is very special place and we've talked about moving back at times but we know that we'll we'll be here long we love la too but yeah so that orchestra when when I joined it in two thousand and two it was during they were referring to like a second golden period they talk about the Paul paraders as like the big golden period like the he was sort of George of Detroit and he created this magnificent Orchestra and Detroit symphonies Ben like beset by so many problems over the years and and it's by dint of musicians wanting the quality to stay high that they fought for everything they had and I you at some point that there's GonNa be a work stoppage and Lo and behold there was one Beckham such thousand eleven thousand ten thousand eleven and I hadn't considered anywhere else because I I really loved my job I love the orchestra we loved our house you know special place and Betsy and I are kind of dyed in the wool mid West here's I I maybe Oklahoma City's stretch for Midwest I think that's considered southwest but my mom's from Chicago and I lived in the Mid West quite a bit anyway I'm rambling say way too much to point that out to me I'm GONNA really try not everybody says Thor I've used I've used my mom's in the last just sort of stream of consciousness but before coming out to La Leonard Slatkin had become our music director after me evy and those years with Rv were just the best and I am of course a bias like because Jaffe hired me and very very specially gave me a lot of opportunities I played a lot of concertos with him in them slatkin took over he was also very generous to me so I was assigned to learn the John Williams cello concerto it was going to be recorded for naxos and that was to happen during the season where we went on strike I was going to ask you about this lead you so so that happened and during the strike I was able to sort of spread my wings a little bit and I was kind of a mercenary principal cellist played principal the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra I play principle in Bergen in Norway where we did some recordings and stuff like that and I was a finalist in the concerned about principle audition and that didn't work out but how long was the strike strike with six months six months to the day and so during that point to music festivals series would call me up to to play it's a hands free vailable head so but it looked like we were moving towards a settlement and at that point I was doing okay fine chilly and betsy bless her she is she's the money person she's so much better oh I mean that goes without saying she's she's just the numbers person money burns a hole in my pocket so she grabs it before I can see managed to save a bundle before the strike happened over a period of like six seven years she saved a year salary of my salary something like that she would probably tell you otherwise but she down plays her frequency in that area she is she's fervor good money she was able to buy you a blanket she bought me hello to uh-huh every time we would come close to like the orchestra settling with Betsy and I would say do I go back to just like try to launch myself as a musician and a solo player getting dates all these things were happening and then the the orchestra settled and of course I went back at the beginning the next season because I was all booked up for the rest of the season where they settled and the Williams Concerto was put on the next season and then saw the ad for the delay Philharmonic Cello Principal Cello position and I thought oh I don't know I send my semi application people listening out there if you think that it's nothing but politics and who you know or whatever getting I hate to disappoint you but it's far more routine and mundane and not mysterious you send in your application like everybody else you get invited to audition and then you you know it's all done fair and square so I when I got my invitation letter I collected all my music it's like it seemed like two and a half hours worth like I held in complete I ever really going to drop the needle thing I always say to students if you can play Helen Lehman from beginning to end the anything I mean it's hard so I had the Williams to learn and I had the how you doing recording project now that you're back at work well that still a ways off but I'm famous crammer hate myself into a corner in after everything at the eleventh hour at Bernstein said like to produce something worthwhile you need a plan and not quite enough time yeah I it was like not not even close to enough time so we got to the Williams Concerto and I've been working on it but then I've really started the heavy duty work got through the concerts recording was made out of the life stuff the live broadcast and then I I have a couple of days not to go through the the filler Monica the philharmonic list it was all stuff that I knew except for maybe the John Adams so and I was in really good shape at the time so you know when you're on fire when you're you're you're in fighting shape you're in like Olympic auditioned audition condition which is like the guys make it to the top of Everest it's one thing to make it to base camp until I got to the summit another thing I mean you know what it takes to win or not just you have to be you can't maintain that can't maintain it and I remember after the whole Williams thing was done I was just spent and I was kind of dejected you know like after performing it's like that sometimes you get like kind of let them well I was practicing pulling an all nighter before I came to La for the audition and betsy named check on me in the middle of the night I was like three in the morning I said Betsy Sniping bother getting on the plane flight was in like seven hours interested Robert and betsy if you're listening I want you to hear this said Robert While you're playing I was it's hard to get emotional about it really had huge effect on me which which he said she said I was mentally preparing the garage sale and it was like that her saying that like getting our house ready to move like her you're saying I sounded that good that gave me so much confidence to Harrison because she is sky high standards and so I knew I was doing something right eight so I I got I got to the audition here and stayed at a hotel like far away 'cause I don't like bumping into anybody I know I can't praise and got to the hall all I remember Eliana she brought me to my room I couldn't move my hand by hand was completely I mean it was gone I couldn't even like it was frozen sometimes like if I'm over playing and under practicing and under that makes sense this will cave in and it's like a muscle spasm and can't move I went to Jeff Jeff I can't play I didn't know his name at the point man a- and he said well we do have an opening there was a cancellation for the next day said if you can come back the committee be upset if you had left and they learned that you couldn't play or whatever just you know think about if you don't show up so I was really happy that they had done that for me and I panicked I was like oh Jesus you know this isn't worth it it's like I don't have a shot anyway that's how I felt like going into the auditions and this is valuable because every audition that I've one every audition have done well in I've had the attitude that I need to lose I'm not GonNa win this Rochester Hartford Detroit and la I win in there and I just played as though is playing a concert I had the right mindset the next day yeah so I get this I so I slept like fifteen hours without getting up for as much as a p. break and some city that's the best strategy I just wear yourself out of basically chop your hand off the cleaver let it grow back overnight got I I mm-hmm two-day beard and even take a shower I just put my clothes on by cello out just very gingerly okay all right all right shop at the hall like ten or whatever played three rounds that day Muslims along day and I was on this committee by the way I know I know and our friend Julie was the other finalist who is selected and she's now principal Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and I was like there was a big gap between the time time that we audition and then our trial weeks were like several months away right because it has to be a time when the music directors conducting so okay so I the U. At no y right we were teaching it together it was just a little bit like Cj was there is a little awkward we went out for fun do you remember the uh we had lunch together and then I was with Julie at the Seattle Chamber Music Festival and Julius like super awesome she's super friendly social and I'm I'm sitting there like in the corner kick getting more and more uptight with like every bite of food this festival is wonderful in Seattle where we it'll take our meals together and it's great unless you're meeting your intercession so God you guys would know what you're getting into and and then there was another festival in Maine where I was playing parts Joey Silverstein it was his thing I hear all stars thing I was invited to that way before the La thing happened I was invited as the principle of Detroit and so we got to play all these these chambers says with Joey Silverstein another one of my heroes and and it was like a little awkward you know you're running into committee members Prince bulls competitor and I'm like she's awesome Oh yeah so anyway look we've all in addition it's worked out it's sometimes it's our day sometimes it's not the bottom line is like there are a lot of qualified people for any position and just to say the from my perspective being on the committee you know we had no idea than than you know no real interest in any of these circuits dances that had led up it it's interesting to me now at the time you know all we were doing was okay they bring out the next person they play whereas to you it was like there are so many ups and downs but that's worth remembering that if if you do have strange circumstances around an addition sometimes there's an assumption that somehow that's GONNA show to the committee so you know I don't feel ready or I did this doesn't quite feel right the committee's not GonNa know or care well I was when I had talked to Jeff I said I'm just GonNa fly Home I didn't ask for another time I just I'm GonNa go he said wait I think we have a cancellation and that's when they decided to give it to if it weren't for that candlish would've left and likely still be in Detroit we'd be flying there to interview yeah that's happened before hasn't we'd like a sliding doors mm-hmm I know I know like another you living in Detroit but the but the whole he's Asian and it has hair has basketball like a lot better than say the the confluence of events that have led up to me well in the La Fila decision. I don't think I would have played as well as I did had it not been exactly that way I I don't know it's so much of it has to do with the timing and I thought oh I didn't prepare well enough of this nonsense I've played the stuff so many times and when you're in really good shape you can pretty much play play it all right I think yeah I mean there those those rare times at the top of the game like that I've ever taken Asian rhyme felt like just like I could just go for it and I felt awesome no I think they were all terrible experiences I don't know it it's funny I in my mind I've never really separated how one prepares for a symphony concert versus how prepares for Concerto were my whole life has been sort of governed by like Oh shit enough time because I'm a slap procrastinator and it's not because I'm lazy it's because I think I have whatever excellent there is as a musician of writer's block I mean it's an anxiety that for many years I couldn't get the cello out of the case unless.

the people meet it was it was a typhoon of Dexter kill room imagine with your customers starting now I can think of slow movement of a symphony or something and you just start like there was a there was in my first principal Gig at Hartford was situated rescue came to conduct soms Beethoven four and you'll have a little movement and so this bumble the timpanist got like a half Barra head and the orchestra it just it sounded like okay Beethoven Beethoven Ives was an hundreds stuck his hand put his hands by and this God Kord that was like from like Satan's blowhole it was horrible at it just it ended movement and the audience was I was getting caught with your pants down it was possibly the worst moment onstage wow in an orchestra that I that I have witnessed some pretty awful things happening by the hiatus you took that I think because I I feel like I had a similar well I I didn't know what I was going to do I mean I played I took up guitar and Bass Guitar and writing songs and actually at that point aww became a priest I mean I was like really drifting these Nathan you really never the sorry sorry Nathan you're kind of the opposite I think I mean I think me also I didn't I didn't think I would become a musician anymore where we were earlier today okay because we were talking to someone else who was talking about a kid and saying wow that kid can be anything he wants to be and I was thinking well not that any whatever came out and set it but I think the understanding was wow there's there's one thing you can be a good way to let them but you never lost I mean you you had a reason for us for me it was just like I just didn't like doing it anymore it's coming up right now but I mean you obviously there are like a family reason for you to just for something else do yeah it was like the one thing that I thought gave my life a little bit more meaning and channel connected just music in general I mean I never really left music at all it never left me I just I was a really really good kid growing up until I reached about that age I just got rebellious and school counselors were calling my parents here F- smell marijuana on your son I say that on your podcast that's terrible I don't think there's any legal case that I just go back and prosecute you because of the order yeah so it's funny how I just kind of made my way back but it ended up going going to Eastman and then after Eastman I went to Yale that was about roll more than it was about teacher usually because I might have gone to study with starker at Indiana but I decided to go to so and ended up being a decision anyway so but Yale and then I was just done with school I was sick of being in school and in the in the meantime I had gotten into in tomorrow Shea had sort of reconnected with David Soyer at that point and that was you know you know breathing in that that atmosphere they're getting to play with gala Mir in Schmidt Ryder and my God those people gala Moore played rebels string quartet four rebel I mean that's that's playing bear opus opus three with him he knew every note by heart will head to he could I don't think he could see very well point either I remember joking with him once I mean he didn't joke around with me he was actually quite a job with him he was quite stern quite mean with me and I came in I was the first person to arrive at air conditioning now I don't know metal mount is different but do you guys ever go to bed amount now I know I never did that or encore Nob- practice eh twice as good one I don't know why went because I all I did was to break the rules in sneak into the girls' storm that was it think you have to do that for five hours a day they're put a cassette tape. What if you're practicing going I do this exercise weight or those silence I can't remember he so yet it was really rustic up there when I was there I mean it was super I have a blanket I wrapped myself and my towel give you a Weirdo I just I don't do anything right so bring your own at that time you had to bring those incur- from home and I'll be fine so sound though it's not sad I'm just I'm just idiot so yeah talking about chatterbox I'm so sorry it's a podcast she said here silently would be scared please keep our long it can be a multi parter because I'm worth it doesn't we've been talking about ourselves for thirty episodes a refreshing change gallery story so I walk in place for the beautiful stradivarius diamonds in the hill style pegs instead of the wooden pips on dan rather were like probably one carat diamonds at least shot at well I said Mr Gallagher do you go to cartier to get your violent adjusted he just looks at me like so I think he tried to set me on fire and you probably heard something else I think that that cocky kit okay now and I was also really uncomfortable I didn't know what to say so I think with a lot of the old timers from that hat generation there was a like an invisible wall that you really ought not cross unless invited to do so and even after that Sa- million already yeah yeah sometimes that makes it worse it's like when that's the situation you almost blurt out inappropriate things even more I don't know what to say so you don't want to say the wrong thing and then you just end up spontaneous terrific syndrome he went to Marlborough several summers so it's just there two summers I did I did a brief tour did this thing to New York and DC and then I just at this point that you have a job yes it was right before I got the the Hartford symphony job and I had a small management in New York took interest in me and so I signed with them and I thought that that was going to be good but I I was actually looking after my mom at the same time I brought her to Connecticut with me to live and that's as we all know we all know somebody who's done something like that it's it's hard it's hard to move back home in a way but my mom couldn't walk anymore looking after her and it was really hard so it was either like get a job as a bartender or something or because the phone wasn't ringing off the hook for me to play concerts I mean I I had a big international music competition a few years before that when the Irving Klein competition my friends always called Calvin Klein communist that competition kind of got me gummy going but I don't like well I don't think anybody likes competitions nobody likes editions but I really really have a tremendous amount of anxiety around than I in my mind was what been there done that bought the he should I don't need to do that again one of one that's that's fine that's good enough for me and I probably should have kept going you know butt off must have should have you know you can never but I mean we're you hoping solo concerts yeah that was my I mean I grew up wanting to be a soloist yeah I mean a lot of us are are sort of in that way anyway but you know it's funny right around that time I started adopting a different attitude that you know maybe opportunity will knock in other places so when I got the job in Hartford something's happened you know I got I got a few more solo concert was really when I when I want my position Detroit that door started opening and I conceivable positions that we're talking about yeah I only went after principal position specific because I in Hartford I I realized pretty good at this and the challenges is that are sort of inherent in that position are they came pretty easily to me like leading a cello section dealing with people I think for the most part when I'm of sound mind comes very naturally to me and so I wouldn't say it's easy money or anything but I I liked it and I I was good at it and I I enjoyed it plus that time spent in Hartford I got to learn all the big solos all the big pieces and and it may not have been the Berlin Philharmonic but it was a job in a got got me a lot of experience so I was in that position for about nine years during which time I I met Betsy and she was in the coastguard band trait simply principal cello position and I was there for ten years and I never thought I'd leave we loved it there we got married they're our kids were born there I mean entered fright there are a lot.

"Hi and welcome back to San Partners for life I am thrilled to be here not only with Akiko but our good friend and close Cali doc bob domain principal cello here they feel and we're actually we're

Tesla's where you are instead so principal viola was on my other side had the deal was there they did that's something I've never seen before wrong seating number two that's right is that David Sanders like his legal from Chicago symphony grilling wrong seating number four right seating number one I mean shallows on the West put the yeah the outside so so over there I don't care how it sounds yeah that's that's the best reason to sit concert right you don't get all the room you need as long as it's your good side that's right thank you for chatting with us today it's that we've actually your name is up in several of the episodes so no only in the best way and Yeah just I I knew when we started the show I knew that I eventually want to have colleagues from the symphony and that you know here thirty some episodes in and actually you're the first guest from the Phil Oh nice I'm on the on the shelf that's great thirty years you haven't listened to the mall by half listening to all of them enjoying them so much yeah but this is going to be fun got a lot of topics we could get into I know you didn't want to plan it out which is perfect but I figured we could start for those who don't know you already Kinda briefly how you got here you grew up not on one of the coasts had in common with me I grew up in fly over country probably the rest of the red states Homa my dad was in the US army captain in the US army and everywhere might devastation my parents they had a kid so two of my sisters were born in Watertown ORC Fort Drum one of my sisters was born in Wichita near Fort Leavenworth worth BEC- prisoners and near Fort Sill in lot in Oklahoma I actually was born in Oklahoma City so so that's where we ended up I'm the lone oak in the family I mean everybody always asks us like when did you know you wanted to be a violinist than yet I'm still kind of figuring that out but uh-huh how intense was the childhood did you end up going to conservatory that sort of thing well it it it's interesting because my mom's family was she's daughter of Russian immigrants to Chicago and they all played an instrument all six siblings played piano and another instrument and my mom was a cellist who's actually quite a fine she ended up Paul University in studying there and then she quit inexplicably but we get into that another time but my dad used to talk about his add playing my grandpa playing the squeeze box so we put the accordion and it was very rustic so for my dad's side we had the sort of Barn dance where dance type of music and the the French Canadian music from his side and my mom's side was the more buttoned up in cultured side Great Grandfather was a barn fiddler in western Pennsylvania Oh wow yeah there's always there's always one in every family uh-huh co-players so music was kind of a thing in my family for a lot of generations my older sister a she was a very fine cellist and I wanted to be just like I just worshipped my sister I still do so I used to sneak into a practice area and she would let me try to play cello when I was little I remember the very first piece I played the cello was a piece called the Fart song they say that and it was actually a section later on I found music and my sister's stack of music it's from the block prayer so this is a piece of music the central section has passage on the C string really low and she used to sing these made up towards the lyrics to this stuff of the string and I just thought that was the best and so she not only cultivated my higher sense for me basic but also my sense of humor and thinking about starting his sister wrote letters like that nobody's going to be right about me and my sister Marian the Fart Song but anyways that's that's another another story but Mary she was really my first inspiration to play the cello and so I kind of learned from her and I was more interested in baseball so in third grade I was seven eight I think it was eight yep they had there's a wonderful school music program you could choose a string instrument or you could choose of abandoned from an I I actually chose both the cello of course because I already sort of knew how to play and I played trumpet as well very badly and I also play piano so we can't lessons and and all that just like my mom's people so the instructor notice that I had some talent and he got me hooked up with the teacher to whom I owe everything absolutely every thing to her name is Jane Smith one of the finest string teachers in the world as far as I'm concerned I'm actually in the in the middle of writing an article and I'm hoping to pitch it to strings or Strand magazine Impreza of the starters always the closers that get the or a lot of the credit your most of the credit at least in in our business I can't use it kind of a base ball analogy it's like you know the Mario Rivera yeah gets gets the win yeah and you know you see studied with Leonard Rose John darker than Herald you know you see all these designer names but you don't see the ones who started you out and I recently I went to visit her and I brought her hello home with me and she used to lonely that instrument yesterday I was well she I I played I grew up playing on my my mother's Hello my sister my sister played the cello my mother played when she was a child and it was a real beater I mean this this thing was awful and I grew up playing playing on that and and you know despite that I I did well in music competitions and stuff like that and my teacher saw to it that I had a good instrument for the more important things like auditions and played pretty big debut concert when I was really young with Oklahoma City symphony she always use her cello which is a a modern Italian instrument and at that point I was probably eleven twelve years old I was at her house almost every day getting piano lessons getting cello lessons just like a game and she taught me everything and I had no idea that the thorough musical education that I was receiving and at the time but I really look at her as a second mother just to say to I mean even today I mean you can sit down and play piano you compose as well which we Meghan into I'm an amateur both of those things but that would never moore's end to yeah we don't do those things I mean you it could turn over that stone who has the time right I like to do more almost failed piano so I sure can well what I remember when I decided piano was abused when it started to get hard Beethoven Sonata last movie I can't play that no kidding anyway yeah that's it got hard for me when I had to like play two things at the same time I know my my hero I was at eastern music festival and it was he teaching at that time he was at juilliard and before I think before that he was curtis but many years before and he wanted me to come study with him at juilliard or to study at Curtis and then take the train into New York and take lessons with him at juilliard so basically it was arranged that I I had gotten accepted into both schools twelve and it did materialize because my parents were very modest means at that point in their lives and reflecting on their list of my my father was the first person in his entire family to go to college even graduate from High School and then he joined the military and he I think my father really wanted to follow in his footsteps and he he wanted me do do honorable work you know the arts that wasn't That was an honorable that was an honest work you know what I mean so my teacher back in Oklahoma Jane Smith who was a she was a member of the Oakland Symphony and also professor at Central State University she dropped me as a student it was like losing a parent because she was oh fed up with my parents that they wouldn't buy me better cello and be were so myopic I don't know if that's the right word but everything works out and the Jews are stand appoint what was happening in why or did you just think she didn't like you anymore I understood means she she had to have her own and I was I was a burden I ended up taking lessons with his wonderful teacher in Tulsa named Cari Caldwell she's principal Tulsa Philharmonic who had it kind of thought that maybe you could go to eastman some great cello school and shortly after after studying with her pretty much quit the cello I just not be as of Cari but because I was fed up with my parents fed up that you know sort of my dream was squashed by other dream is being a catcher for a major league baseball team but I know I don't have enough talent as an athlete so I stopped I stopped playing the Cello I hung out with my friends I did rotten things of the terrible kid terrible get acted out and and on New Year's managed to do well in school I somehow graduated taught my class and all that but my good and who is now a cop in Oklahoma City and Brian he said to me if you don't go to music school I'm going to kill you I just want to go to overland State University the hunting I know it sounds like it's right I think it's actually the end of April heading this does sound a little what's up I entered one of these regional like multi-state music competitions it was pretty well known in the area in Wichita Wichita State University and ahead played cello in several years at least two and a half three years practice like mad I won the competition one like five grand and one of the judges of the competition was a voice teacher at Eastman Thomas Paul and he was really pitching Eastman and I had remembered Cari had study with Ron Leonard my predecessor here the he was a professor at Eastman for many years before coming out here and so that name just sort of stuck with me and I decided to only play Eastman and I went to Dallas for the regional audition I

Do they give you a Nobel prize for attempted chemistry? And it's just such a such a clean joke. It's like such a classic like joke book joke to me, I love it such a good straight up, you know, punch line there. So this point Birch is rallying the troops and letting people know, you know, hey, let's do our job to get sideshow Bob out of prison. Like, let's Stuart weekend and we cut to mos-, but here's the thing, the UAE he likes, I show Bob is because sideshow Bob agrees with him and as a fan. So that's the thing that scary.

Would you say really resonates with you the most that made you wanna talk about it today? Well, you know, it is. It is very insane how it came through all the stuff in this episode. But the other thing that's funny is when it came when you had this conservative talk show, crackpot kind of guy. He's just dismissed not realizing that that's the beginning of the end, really. You know, we're all just going. I do like the fact that Homer finds them entertaining, which yes is kind of sad. Yeah, that kinda reminds me of Ted Cruz did like this whole video of Simpson's impressions and then also claimed that the Simpsons family were Republicans and said, then league, Lisa margin and Maggie would be tried to insult Lisa and Maggie for being Democrats and try to praise Homer for being a Republican and it's like bull. Sure. But homers made fun of constantly. He the butt of the joke. Also, he's the least Sean. Shore man in America. It's not a good thing to say that Homer would vote for you like he's a good guy through and through, but I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he was like a Republican in some ways because yeah, what he's gonna he is. He's supposed to represent just, you know your normal American. That's who voted for Trump people that see guiding donuts, just like him and saying, oh yeah, that guys like me. You know, it is very scary. But I, I have a question for you guys because I was wondering about why is Costa grammar sometime sideshow Bob and sometimes he's not..

"Next track. I only listen to podcast when I enter into a dark room and someone puts the sound on for me. So this episode is making me really. I'm going to introduce myself. I'm Bob scrapes, cold fire. Cackle we're so happy to have you for having me. Tell us a little bit about your new show. It's on TRU TV. The federal witness relocation at work. People have if you have to cool off after turning fed evidence on a crime figure. No, so tree TV. It's comedy. Now, I think that's their motto. So it's called the misfits in monsters anthology series. So each week, it's a completely different episode and different genre, different style, different casts. And so the last one is ninety percent animated. So. I saw in the promos at some of it was there were some Andrew. The first episode was Seth green, and he played a guy who was the voice of a very popular animated bear, and then the bear comes the life and tries to kill him. So it's because he hates the way makes his voice sounds. So it's like related to that. I thought it was. I thought it was about Tom, Kenny. My friends since I was six years old and I thought I was reading about him because he's SpongeBob and so many other characters, but then it was my daughter who worked on the show, who didn't. She had a point out to me. She's like, hey, dummy. That's us. Character that that's I don't know if the character that created it was trying to kill me, but certainly maybe financially so no. So yeah. So it's Cape fear and Roger rabbit and very violent. And that was that was the first episode which was animated. And then the next one is it's it's about swarm mentality. So two guys get reincarnated as Bs and then naturally. Yeah. So yeah, I really think too far out of the box via. So that was a little pool. I mean, they they, they tend to have some sort of politics in them. Most of the episodes that's not surprising at all. If anyone has seen any of the stuff that you've made your stuff as always, it always is very grounded and funny and great, but it's also it's always got a really strong message weather. I I hope so. I mean, sometimes I think it's a little less subtle in this show. Like there's one with David Keck ner at set in the seventies, and he plays a, he's a like a Cal Worthington. He's a used car salesman who who's bigger than life and you know, good old boy shoots from the hip and all that stuff and pitcher, David tech nerves that care. Real or a clip that I could something. Putting him in a cowboy hat, we felt bad, right? He brought his own. Came off. Sweep. We put a sequence on it and we made it. So wait, he so they run a him for office to be the president, and then he's disclosing the like, well, is there anything that's going to campaign manager? It's going to bite us in the ass. Well, I cheated on my first wife. Well, that's what I was four. And I'm aware of wolf and. What aware will find anything else is like? Well, I I ate a toddler when I was aware wolf. Wolf and they will. No. Perfect. So hilarious. This cub reporter. She's trying to break the story. It's not really ruining it, but you know, they find out he's aware. We'll turns out, no one really cares. I love I wanna wear for president. I don't want people pushing our country around so torn from the headlines. So. That's enough, right, misfits and monsters. I, it's, it's something that I think Oliver listeners would love, and also that particular storyline worked so well with the episode that we're talking about today. So some behind the scenes are we, we have a gigantic list of episodes left, although many people have said that some of the best start taken and that is true..
