"brennan mcdonald" Discussed on WTF with Marc Maron Podcast

"That was Lynn Shelton and me August. Two Thousand Fifteen g few it. Did you feel when she left that day? I called that Brennan McDonald my producer. And I said I don't know what just happened man but in some I could see some alternate reality that I was with her. There is an alternate reality. Where I'm with that person I could have been with that person at some other point in time and that alternate reality became the reality for the past year. After I talked to her on the podcast I wanted to work with her. She couldn't do the first season of Merrin but she came in on board on the final season of Merrin and did a couple of episodes and then by coincidence we were on glow together and we'd constantly talk. We always engaged. I later up. She looked me up and I love talking to her. I loved everything about her. So good at everything she so she could fuck and sing you guys. I mean we used to sit and play. Occasionally I get a little shy but we were finally breaking you kind of with hang out and sing songs ice. And she had a voice. He would sing everyday in the bathtub every day. She could Sing God. She could sing and she created films. That were so intimate and so personal and so she so acutely sensitive to to who people are and how to get who they are out of them. And I'm not. I'm not saying that just because I'm projecting it's true so we worked together on glow and then she. I asked her to direct my comedy special to Real and then she wanted make a movie with me but we never got around to finishing it so she created. Sort of trust with Michael. O'brien and I was in that movie and we do a scene together in that movie which is amazing and she did my last special. That's on now and times fun but I gotta be honest with you guys going over. I can't get certain things out of my mind. Sadly the good things are there but the bad things are just too close right now and I don't even know if I should be out in public talking but this is what I do and this is where I'm at and there's no right or wrong with grief it comes in waves. I just know that this person has touched so many lives that win. Shelton is so important so inspirational and so. She was so kind in so charismatic. In full of joy and positivity in it shouldn't I mean. Shouldn't everyone be so lucky to make that kind of impact on so many people so many lives so many people after for so many different reasons? Strong Woman Role Model. But just also just you know basically decent person good person to all people she worked with but she was also you know focused in which she wanted something she figured out how to get it. To make it work creatively but again the outpouring of love and support for me for her family has been powerful and if there's anything she taught me really is that people do love me that she loved me and that you know there's nothing I can do about that and and and I realize well I was learning how to accept it and I'm accepting it now accepted it from her and I loved her and I'm happy you all loved her. So many people have such a longer history in such different memories and I just. I hope you're leaning on those and that there all good in that you if you don't know her that well you get familiar with her work but the love coming at me. I. I'm it's helping me. I've never felt grief like this or this bad in. My brother came immediately out here and I had to say yes. Is this how this is going to go? And get my brother over and then I'm going to get covert on top of this and my brother. My have you know what I'm going to sit in here alone with my fucking sick cat. Lynn Shelton was an amazing person. In amazing artist powerful woman powerful charismatic joyful presence in the world. She's gone to horrendous loss. For A lot of people my heart goes out to her family and to her friends and anybody who knew her. And Um I guess we'll get through this. I'll tell you something. When was already separated from her husband? I was still struggling with feelings and I was trying to keep my feelings. I was still seeing somebody and we couldn't really begin anything but I had these feelings and I'm very good at not acting on feelings to be honest with you. I can shut them down. I can shut them down but could not shut down and the and the thought of of her starting some other part of her life without me now that she could which is too much for me to handle and and and I had to make a choice and I said this to her. I said you know if IF I don't try to honor my feelings for you I'll regret it for the rest of my life and I and I did. What was necessary to try to do that? At it was the greatest decision I ever made and I don't have any regrets about it of sorry. Other people got hurt but now whatever she gave me it's GonNa stick and it'll it'll elevate me for the rest of my life once they get past this horrendous loss. I know that she liked my guitar. Playing among other things she used a lot of the little riffs I do at the end of the show for the soundtrack of sort of trust and She encouraged me to compose a piece of blues piece which I did with Tall Wilkin fouled and had a bunch of pro studio guys recorded and Lynn was in the in the booth. And I just doing the guitar and looking at her watching me nervous to be playing with Doyle Bramhall. You know who is there too. And but this is. This is how we're going to go out today..

"We all just want to get through this and if you want to minimize it that Cedeno at at your peril but again I get it again. I can get belligerent. Wins is going to be done? Why CAN'T I? I have my buddy deane came over the other day because I got sent a barbecue care package from kristen down it obese in outside Austin and spice would and I couldn't eat all the fucking meat and that seemed like an emergency to me. I can't have all this meek sitting around in my house so adding come over. He showed up in his gloves and his mask drove ten minutes putting the world at risk with that drive and I put the shit on my traeger got reheated through. He sat six feet away from me me and win so I stopped. The shit slid down the table. Had a nice chat masks off for the food named went along the way. It was nice to socialize at a distance again. You decide what you need to not lose your mind. Hurt yourself or others. That is also important. There's a deliberation that needs to go on there. Some sort of negotiation with self. Don't go crazy either. In behavior or by M- mentally losing what you've been doing for fun. We did something we hadn't done as a couple we did the. Let's go through. Our pictures are old pictures. Have you done that any of you do in that at home? How old are you people? I mean like hard copies. I got a box of polaroid. It's like an image raffle for my life is reaching you. Pull out one night. Oh yeah that was. Nineteen eighty-three. Does that party. Oh I remember that girl fuck. What was her name? Play that game. That's the that's the picture lottery game. If you've got a long past of pictures just make a mess of in like a puzzle. Put Him in a bag or box and reach in and pull one out and go. Oh Shit I remember that night. That was no good. I wonder what happened to that guy? Reach in and pull it out That dog died. Reach in pull it out. Holy Shit look at. We were in love it. Then that didn't end guel reaching out would that my mom bought me those pants hours of fun. Jog Your memory. She showed me some pictures. I showed her remind been thinking a lot about things in the past. Make sure I have no unresolved amends to make. I texted Dave. Cross about about something that happened that I it's more about not understanding why I did it really and wasn't even that big a transgression really. I mean years ago. Cheese must be in the Late eighties I believe me and my girlfriend. At the time Kim went over to Dave Cross's girlfriend at the time. Faiths House were Davis Dan and they just gotten a new food. Tom For the living room couch Black Futon and we got fucked up. The four of US had some food I think fucked up and got late and they were going to crash and I decided like why. Don't we just crash here on their new futon and for some reason like we had sex on it and we got we got some s on their gut got some come on their new black Futon and was embarrassing morning? It was an embarrassing sort of like you know. Yeah sorry pretty clear what what happened here. And I don't know what to say but like in a deeper way I don't why didn't I just take a cab home? Why don't we just leave? Why did I have to do that? In my animal there have to mark the territory. Did I have to what the fuck was at about? So that really what was I was hung up with and I texted that today by saying I'm sorry about that. I don't know if you remember. But about the black futons and he sent something funny that. I can't read to you because it's it's private and I think he doesn't bother him does not stuck in his crime anyway. There's obviously bigger problems. But why why did I stay? Why did we stay? Why can't we have left? I don't know that's an investigation. That's ongoing in in my heart and mind in terms of you know how I am with people and with friends and you know but it's easy mistake you're fucked up. I just WANNA crash but could taken. A cab wasn't broke was that about. What did I have to prove? I listened to Fiona Apple's new record. I talked to her many years ago. It was kinda great a little loopy but it was fun both of us but I remember the idler wheel. Two Thousand and twelve to me felt really raw in almost uncomfortable listening to it because of the emotions and it seems now with fetch the bolt cutters that she's really wrangled. It altogether wrangled it. In reigned in and focused at Shit and it does not disappoint. That record is deep. It's disturbing it's honest and puts a lot of things in a in a poetic perspective that I wouldn't have seen them in otherwise varied in musicality and rhythms. Just it's a great record. I know I'm not the only one saying that. So kudos to Fiona apple for pulling it out for pulling herself out for fetching. Those bolt cutters to get adver. God Damn head. Good job I did. Not Listen to the second Bob Dylan release. I've grown impatient and irritated with with that generation to a degree. I'm happy that they're all still alive. But I mean we can continue mining. The words for some sort of like it's got to be in here in the answers has got to be in your. I think honestly for the past five or six years. At least. Most of Dylan's output are just rough drafts of his last words. More than a social statement. It's more of A. They seem to be an ongoing reflection of his own dimming. Not that I don't love the Guy I love the old Jew. Nice AC- Mick Jagger playing. You can't always get what you want. He's voice sounded. Greatest Guitar sounded great. Charlie watts like one hundred years old keith. Kind of looked at kind of focused. Ron would of course put on a show but bottom no matter how how sad and beautiful simultaneously that stones thing was a mix sounded great and on the Film Front for some reason. Lynn had a copy of this film. That you really liked and I'd never heard of. It's called Lock L. O. C. K. E. with. That guy is his name. Tom Hardy that genius. That fucking chameleon. It is really kind of a stunning little movie. He's a genius in it and the entire thing takes place in a car is two thousand and thirteen but there are voices. Olivia Colman is in it. She does voice. Ruth Wilson Andrew Scott whose genius and fleabag and. It's just a an intense stunning bit of cinema. If you have time I would search it out so Rosie O'Donnell oh yeah before we get to that. Let's let's get Brennan McDonald on the Horn. Here let me see if I can do that. There's a little sound Brendan that means. We're on we're on. We are looking at this. I can see you. You got me right there and exactly no one can. No one's ever GonNa see this but they can hear it. They can and that was why we did this. We thought okay well. Let's let's do this so people can hear. Were doing but you can also feel comfortable like you do in your show. You're sitting across from me and we're talking right but I don't see your kids running around. The Rosie kid was running around that granted. She's twenty or something so in and out. Well and that's that's going to be the new environment that we're in now. You're not just dragging people past your cat litter boxes. They're dragging you into their house and you're seeing their life. I'm going to just we're going to have to make the I'm going to have to adapt. Well that's what I thought. This was a good one to actually make that jump. Because you know people probably don't know this. We haven't really talked about it in detail but you know when we started doing the podcast. I was working for Rosie. That was actually the job that I got when we got fired from Air America during the break room they were starting up the Rosie show and they. They contacted me immediately. They knew the show got cancelled break room and they were like. Hey here. You're looking for work at like literally the day. After that show got cancelled they were bringing the end to come do Roseanne. I was sitting there going. GonNa do no right and I also wanted to keep doing the thing with you so so we started doing that show. We were like doing the prep in the planning for it. While I'm interviewing and getting this job with Rosie and then that Rosie show on. Sirius allowed me the opportunity to have a life and have a paycheck while we spent a year. Plus get in the podcast off the ground. I was loading envelopes in my house and Highland Park to send out swag the people that were donating ten dollars a month right and was like doing it in secret like I didn't tell anybody at serious like oh. I'm doing this secondary show and that was like every time I was doing another job. It was this entirely different world what we were doing on the podcast. I weep the Rosie show we produce that like regular. Tv Talk. Show like we would go. We produced it out of her house she lived in upstate. New York we would go up there every day. Travel up to her house and it was like there were seven or eight people around like sidekicks and and her friends that she wanted in the room with her and then we we drive famous people up there to be on the show with her was cleese's things she'd she'd play live game. She wanted like contests on road. Tv show the fact that we were doing this like basically like a similar lacrima for old TV talk show but on the radio. It just couldn't have been more different than what you and I were doing. Like flying by the seat of our pants and it. I think it actually like gave me a lot of juice. To produce the PODCAST. The way we did it just felt so different and freeing that I was like all right well during the day I do this like mammoths radio talk show and then at night I go home and I make my little podcast. Nobody's GonNa hear well. The great thing was Also is that it must have been a relief because when you work around her especially at that point you know you can't get out from under that. I mean it's like you know she becomes part of your head and life you're like an appendage of Rosie O'Donnell well I definitely had to prove myself to her when when when I first interviewed for that job like she was like who is this twelve year old. Like why this guy is going to run my show like she had no desire to have like a kid producing her first foray into radio and I really had to like a basically was not unlike what I had to do with you that I had to just show her through my competence and professionalism like oh I can trust this guy like he'll he'll deliver for me. I was interviewing anybody. I was just in a panic and you would show up and go like maybe if you just do it like this okay. Thank you and then two days later. What's that guy's name again? Yeah it was I mean for her. It was more like she was like I. I just felt like she could at any time. Turn around and be like that guy get rid of him but it happened pretty quickly that she was like. Oh Okay I get him. He'll he'll do this thing for me. And the the thing from my end again like not like with you is that I noticed right away that like Oh my God. She is like an undeniable talent. Right like this can work. Because she's just good. I like her charisma and her skills at being a performer and presenter are unparalleled like I I was watching the other day I was watching a league of their own mostly because I love baseball so much. I miss it and so I was like. Could you give me any baseball? Yeah and that's as good a baseball movie as as watching it and it is astounding. That's like her first role in anything..

"Means palm trees in the Arctic. Hello and welcome to wise is happening with me your host Chris Hayes. All right you guys know how much. I like to try new stuff here on the podcast experiment new guests new topics things we haven't done before today's topic that we have done before and it's a topic. I think about a lot. I'm fairly obsessed with. I think the single most important issue we face probably the most important issue in the history civilization and its with a book author of a book that I flew through an incredible book that I'll tell you what about but I'm trying to think about what's the best way to do. The intro for this because the topic itself is so intense in the conversations. You'll hear is probably one of the most. I don't know what's the right word like emotionally intense spiritually intense conversations that we've had it it revolves around some of the most profound questions of what our purpose on. This planet are the brief time that we get to inhabit it. Why why we're here and what we can or can't do during that time. And so I was trying to think about the best way to intro it and then got an email from Brendan McDonald. Who is the Brilliant producer who edits our interviews. And he'll sometimes he'll send an email after taking a passer interviewing edited down with some notes about the intro saying oh you may need to set this upper or you mentioned this but you never say what it is so think about this. I'm just GonNa read a portion of Brennan McDonald's email about this episode that you're about to listen to with David Wallace Wells. He gives me some There's some logistical stuff. And he says now the trickier part which seems both unavoidable impossible to deal with. There is no amount of setup. No amount of rationalization no amount of stating the precise case of why? It all needs to be heard that makes this. An easy lesson is arguably an act of emotional violence to put one's brain nonstop for an hour in stark terms over and over. The causes of global misery are extreme culpability in it and the absence of will to change it. It's easier to do a podcast on that reaction then a podcast with a topic that prompt such a visceral response. I'm obviously not telling you anything you don't know since you approach the topic from these terms several times within the discussion but it's just to say that it doesn't actually diminish the impact as a listener of taking this all in over the course of an hour my feeling is you can just play that as it lays and accept the fact that it may just be too much for some people to hang with for an hour or at the very least acknowledged upfront that. This is a known conundrum. A kind of I feel your pain. Pre-battle for what you're about to listen to so. Are you ready? Out there in gasoline. So that is brand new. Mcdonald's WHO's a really incredible incredibly talented brilliant area. Funny Witty a great writer as you can tell who Who EDITS OUR INTERVIEWS? That's him having listened to author David Wallace. Wells speak about his new book called. The how'd worth the topic of which is what climate change is doing to the Earth. And we'll do the earth with some certainty in the present and very near future. The range of what is possible is enormous but one of the central thrust of the book is. We are under counting. Just how bad it's going to get and how bad it's going to get already baked into the system based on the car and we put in the air and also how bad it could get in the worst case scenario which is something that we might that we humans have control of obviously but may just fail the test. We may not rain in enough to avoid truly genuinely this topic cataclysmic eventualities. That is the topic of the conversation what we are doing. The planet by putting carbon in the atmosphere what we have been doing in the last thirty years since we knew what we were doing our apparent inability to stop ourselves from doing it so far what it will mean for us and our children in the very near future and out into the end of the century and beyond what it means for human life on the planet what it means about humans and human civilization and Human Agency as we look into the vast darkness that is a universe that blinks back at us. Cold unfeeling because there is nothing else out there that we know of like us like what we are doing here on this planet. The one project for life that exists in the vast -ness of the universe that we know of and what we are doing to that project right now as. I speak to you as you hear the words in your ears from my voice. That's the topic of today's conversation. I found it really bracing. I find it kind of beautiful and dark cold and lonely way but it's something it's it's intense as hell and I think it is as important a book because I read in a long time on Earth by David Wells Wells and he is brilliant and incisive and thoughtful and sensitive about all this and is someone that you.

"A lot of people. Wanted me to see this in the theater. I think you should see in the theater. I think it is a gorgeous film and I probably should've seen it in the theater but I watched it at home and my roommate is very uninterested in award screeners and she just like will never sit down and she does not care that we have access to all these movies that she's like the height of doesn't care. She got so sucked into nineteen seventeen. She sat down. She got emotional. I was like this is this is a powerful lake lake piece of filmmaking. I think so I don't know in our house is a big deal. And yeah the celebrity cameos Didn't bother me except I think the the only one that stuck out to me was cumberbatch and I was like I. I don't know I I don't know how I feel about this but the other ones I didn't didn't flat me I think. Just become such a cameo unto himself like Oh. It's kind of a little winky joke that it's been well On. His arrival is so like he is the person who is trying to reach basically so when you get to him. It's like it's been and built up where you're like all right. I'm going to be no. I would say anecdotally in terms of like interest in the movie Kind of similar to your experience. Joanna is that like that was the one unscreened that my family was really disappointed. I didn't have over. What about that one? I was like. Oh now don't have it. I do have it now but like maybe Christmas. I'll come home. You know the the triumphant event person but But yeah they're I don't know I think that movie will be appealing to a lot of people in a way that maybe something smaller you know wouldn't be so I think that despite mixed reaction to it so far I think that thing has got a lot of awards juice in it one prediction. I'm ready to to make right now. Is Roger Deakins will win for cinematography. Because I went to this academy screening. That was kind of like a crafts academy crowd and partly because the actors are not as well known. But the first time I've ever been in a screening where the cinematographer got the biggest round of applause at the beginning when they when Sam Mendes was introducing everybody eighty and at the end when his name came screaming and it was just like Ok p cinematic but it is sort of a a gaudy show of expertise not and prowess and you know all the rest of it. So I mean an ambition so I think that that's pretty much slam dunk. And he finally won his Oscar right. He wants to put the classic. We all remember during their twenty forty nine so it would be kind of funny after like this like Susan Lucci run of not winning that the damage has now broken. Roger Wins. Yeah I think I could easily see that happening. Well that's kind of what happened with Lebowski. Because children are men was such a Like a phenomenon and it got totally ignored by the Oscars and then he went three three in a row like he he kind of had that burke strict the same way I just. I think that I can't argue Mike with you calling hauling it gaudio like I completely agree very flashy but it's for me. It serves the emotional journey in a way. That doesn't make it just seemed like. Oh you're showing off what what you can do with like camera tricks and letting you know a lot of that comes down to performance and so I just yeah I just Wanna I wanna Gosh about this movie because I'm going to be like this hour apple about the next movie so I just want everyone to know. I Love Cinema. I love films about but but I do think just going back to Haiti. Something you said earlier. And without spoiling this movie any more than we already have You know it is the scene where he meets a baby where I was starting to be like I'm not sure that I'm really buying the scenario here. Like I get that you had the do something but it it it starts some things. Start to feel like a stretch within the confines of the of the concept the concept universal Salaam has sort of limply offered up that actress is supporting actor contenders. Supporting actress she actually. I think technically does have more and like someone was like okay when comparing seventeen and I did get someone on twitter was like you. Don't like the Irish because it's all about men I'm like okay. But it's almost like wait. She was just praising nineteen seventeen. I was like yeah but I think the woman in nineteen. That's more is being honest with you. Yeah it's it's it's interesting. Ah I haven't even said Richard did when we first talked about. Maybe we haven't even said the name George Mackay Doors McKay's like the anchor performance of this film. I I think that he should be considered For his performance of this and you know having to carry a camera on you for the entirety of the movie is is no mean feat and he just does an incredible job both with stiff upper lip and then maybe with the Nazis differ. I really thought you meant that. He was doing some of the entire feels like what how he wasn't carrying he might have. It won't win any no. Isn't that movie if you had been through a really hard thing. And then at the end you saw Richard maddened cried. I cried and I had just was like sitting there on the couch stiff upper lip. Uh Hair we. Yeah yes Dr George McKay is is very very good. I agree with you. I think you should really be in the mix and and if he's not it's only because people don't remember his name right so let's say it one more time George Mackay field is like so monstrous this year that it's so like it's hard for anybody to get in there so that universal any universal awards consultants are listening to this at like three x speed speed. Because they're forced to just make a room on learning and Mike He's in your favorite movie. Captain Fantastic so you were. You can say you're on the ban. While I did not know one thing I wanted to mention quickly about about George McKay is that one of his. In development projects is a music by opaque about the kinks. So like maybe. That's his Oscar. We I don't know like those movies always do well for for young actors will he play Ray Davies or I believe so yeah nice debut. Sorry Okay Yeah So. We talk about Irishman. But just keep thinking about nineteen seventeen bussing out here and then once upon a time in Hollywood being a contender. It is such a Macho Oscar year. Living an interesting one. I think there have been much more boring. Macho movie. Hacksaw Ridge was a best picture nominee. Not that long ago but really mail like a lot about the decline of The mid century white man and and all the things that that means which I find intriguing but I also can get if some people are GonNa get exhausted which maybe we all be by February okay. We've been promising to talk about the Irishman it does on net flicks. It seems popular. It's impossible to know how many people are watching it or especially watching the whole thing but like there's Irishman memes which. I didn't necessarily see coming up up before Thanksgiving Weekend Mike. I think you tweeted that you were really watching it last night so you might be the first person. The Irishman twice. I have spent six. It did not finish it but I watched I watched it. I admit I confess. I watched it on my phone on a plane can then get eh. I'm sorry Marty but it was actually fine. He up to the three speed podcast out. uh-huh and then I watched it again at home with my wife and so I spent six and a half hours in the last forty eight hours watching the Irishman but actually it was great great to watch it again I. I actually kind of reconsidered something that I was theorizing on twitter yesterday. First Time through. I kind of thought it was a story about a Like a sociopath pleaser which is a dangerous type. You know that that Deniro's character is incapable of feeling but so ah but he kind of in order to steer himself correctly he just make sure that he is loyal to somebody and they tell him what's right and wrong and unfortunately that means that he's it gets told that he's right when he murders people for a living but the second time through. I was kind of questioning that I think. Actually it is a very felt performance. It's another stiff upper lip. It's like emotionally strangled. I'm familiar with this being an irish-american emotionally strangled old mid-century man and and And that makes it even sadder you know you just think this guy does want to be a good person and he does care about people in his is life and he's just really mixed up in terms of his. You know whatever you WANNA call it values and morality but you can kind of see. Why so I I do? I found it incredibly fascinating and honestly all the aging and everything made me really really interested in Deniro just as a as is a figure as an artist as a person who's just been around for a long time. I think the biggest problem with the de Aging. That's an interesting maybe unanticipated. One is we we know what De Niro and Pacino and Peci all looked like twenty years ago and they looked nothing like this whereas when you age someone you have no way of knowing what they're gonNA look like in thirty years you can go back and look but who cares at that point so it is kind of uncanny but then something. My friend Brennan McDonald pointed out on twitter. Like that also makes it interesting because because this character is not deniro. It's frank when you go back twenty years you know Deniro wasn't wasn't a lumbering sort of slap a ham you know When he was forty or at least when he was thirty so so I don't know I found it incredibly interesting like lots of problems? I mean Pacino's just like like overacting out the WAZOO. Great Fun way like how can you. How can you? It's not a problem it's just a it's just a fact just like the scene where he's like screaming at everybody calling the mother fuckers and it's just like it's so extreme but it's wonderful I'm I'm I feel blessed that we have this man to chew scenery the way that he does and we got to talk about the women thing. Obviously it's something. I'm not sure how intentional it was on the second time through. I'm a little worried. It's not that intentional. I I want to talk about this because we already had some of this conversation. I totally bought the way that it's intentional. And there's been a couple of people already writing by Vianna. Pack One specifically who is so so notably silent like she really only has seven lines but she's in a bunch of other scenes not saying anything. That's clearly intentional. The cheese there as the silent witness and and but I think that also added with You know there's this road trip that's the frame story within the frame story and.

"It felt amazing to eat that and there's another pint at home. I'm in New York and I'm thinking about it right now and Mike I get home but I can just get ben and Jerry's anywhere linen I he did Q._N._A.'s at several. We did like five of them. The first night we did at the Ninety Second Street Y my friends Samlip site is great to see Sam is a nice conversation and then my family was supposed to come out. They were all planning to come to the show that would be my my father's wife Rosie. My <hes> AUNT LINDA MY UNCLE BILL MY COUSIN LISA MY DAD's cousin Jeff My dad's cousin Norman Lisa's kid nick and his girlfriend. I didn't realize it was going to be that many but you know I don't see them that much. So I thought well that'd be good and then the movie starts they're not there and then we're about about an hour into the movie an entire parade of my family just kind of waddles into the theater and walks by me and Lynn sitting at the back of the theater my give me an hour in so I don't know what happened but it didn't work out exactly right in now. I'm going to another screening today because it's Sunday and they're trying again and I've already already gotten a text that there was a train problem family mm-hmm we man it's great. It's great good times so that but that's greening was great because <hes> Sam was air and then the following day Benson Claire hopes to win. I never met him before. We had a nice conversation about this south. Western Jews not onstage aged offstage. He grew up in Phoenix. Were you know my brother lives and where my ex wife one of them is from. I spent a lot of time in Phoenix so that was exciting. People are laughing and asking questions and then Tom Sharp wing and Brendan McDonald not together they moderated <hes> a couple of the Q._N._A.'s down here at the I._F._C.. Always good to see Brendan. It's interesting when Brendan moderates a thing with me because honestly nobody knows me as well as Brennan McDonald this guy he has to listen to all of this shifted. I'm saying right now twice a week on top of me talking to people he's actually got pretty good boundaries but you know he knows me real well so so that's always exciting thing. I always learn something about me. I didn't know when Brendan talks to me in public <hes> and you know it's one of those moments where it's like okay. That's okay yeah that is me. You're right you're right and now now everyone knows and Tom Sharply of course is terrific and we had a great time with him. And then the next night IRA glass <hes> moderated to that was last night and we went out to me and win went out with <hes> with IRA for snack afterwards had a nice conversation.

That's what you do when you you've lived in New York and it's all gotten away from you is like Oh. There used to be a place here where people did bad things. I miss that when people did bad things right here at this place and I lived right there right over the bad things happening. That's that's the memory of New York if you lived here in the eighties or nineties Oh back when I lived here some really horrible shit what's going on over here but you got to know them the people that were doing the horrible shit.

"Who I am as a person. I wanna talk about the relationships between the ranger his wife in the voice. Oh, okay. 'cause Rangers clear me by sexual, I mean, heavy lifted them, obviously, and he's sort of a more serious kinda guy or girl. I'm not sure we've ever said their gender. I just want them gay. That's, you know, queer some spectrum on the more serious type because when you're a ranger out in the woods, yo survivals important. That's a serious job, unlike sites. They're busy drinking strange things just to see what happens to their flora and fauna in their guts. I mean you like you can't you can't trust. Scientists. I mean, he them said about them. But while. But the wife and boisterous bruiser are both, like happy, fun, people that this the likes to do, like small pranks. Yeah. Which is why known would suspect her of murder. Or any foul play really. But also exchanged, they're both his type. Yes. Oh. And it leads us to not suspect, because we like, because we end up liking the Bruce similar to the wife, therefore, we like the wife to excellent. Okay. Good. Good is the acuity of relationship with the wife is going to end see above rape-murder her, but he's not going to jump into a relationship with the bruiser. It's just a potential future opportunity for happiness. Someone clearly his type oh my God. Multiple book. Slow-burn. Into a they were roommate. Camping. This dough store. Oh my God. Anyway, DO. So that's, that's what I'm doing. I love that. Brench. Save me from myself. What do you got? Well, here's how I figure the cellphone place because that does play him with communication specifically. I'm thinking in the lead up to the climax here d- ranger has discovered the truth. But they are outside the city limits, and their normal method of communication is cut off somehow. So it's so I'm interpreting this as a lack of communication. So that's where we do the race against time. He and the boisterous bruiser go like running through the woods they had to like dodge the deadly fines. This is where the boys bruiser has the chance to shine before we get the political climax in the city because like the bruisers like, no, hold onto my back and then we get like. Running through the woods. Oh my God. The twilight option. Hold on spider. Okay. I did not remember the quote, Brendan. Good job. So that's that's been trumpeting is a lack of communication everybody that usual device. Everybody thought everyone else brought the spare cell phone battery. But it also adds to the element of danger and claustrophobia. You know, you're out in the middle of the woods, and there's no communication. In fact, that's frequently seen as a in screenwriting or what have you because modern communication is the way it is. Frequently people how can I get rid of the cell phone as quickly as possible, because if anybody has a cell phone you solve the problem. Stuck in the woods with no food and there's a murder nine one, one. The solution to that is set in the eighties. Yeah. I mean, there's always a solution, but I. I mean, there's an argument between maids, it's like that's just a lack of creativity in terms of what you can do with cell phones or the lack thereof. However, that's not the argument here. The here is Brennan. That's cool idea. Thank you. I think I got something. Okay. All right. Here's what I got once again, interpreting very loosely. I would like the city or their civilization to be up against a fairly significant cliff. Okay. So one of the things that people do to give the to make it less terrible, quote unquote, what they do to criminals. They stick them on a centrally. What are paragliders? And. With. And then they end up in the O M they end up in the jungle below if they can make it back to the city. They're forgiven, but they never make it back. And everyone's like, that's because they've died out there. No, that's not why it's because they're like fuck you. Australia's better. But because you know, crime and punishment is a thing that exists, and let's you know, we could tie that into their fuck and religion. Why not? Get some, you know, if down in the jungle, and in the muck and the jurors were all the major mega-fauna and bugs are than the air where you are safe is a is a better thing. And so that's why they wanna be up on this. Cliff, let's say, oh, they're really high up because. There's less Arab there, and honestly, they're smaller, so they can actually go up there larger creatures just can't deal with the gravity and lack of air. So then our science team is also having the additional difficulty of being a little bit heavier and kind of stoned when they're close to the ground anyway. Science culture Siro building that all in there. So is the ranger like a master or pilot. Just or license. He has actually done it before he's done minor. He's as part of their training. There is a thing where you can cliff dive. And then catch thermal and come back. I'm saying that, that's the thing that's billable shut up and a thing that's talkable. You know what else they really like balloons? They like balloons lot. The balloons are tethered, obviously, we don't want to be in danger of other stuff. Ooh. You'd have like a balloon like you have the cliff there. That means we have like the big elevator that, you know, is like the huge chain with a platform. That's nicely decorators that takes up the city from the font level. Ooh. What if the city is like the nice shit? What if there's some stuff near the bottom of the cliff, right? That's like the more lower castes stuff. You know, the poor people who have to deal with the fucking giant insects, and they become taller, which proves that. They are less. Good, right? Don't don't. Oh there because you becoming taller because they're closer to the. To the forest, which is that whole oh, my cod, Brenton genius look at that, and we're developing culture and world building and showing how that fucks up their entire lives. Your world building affects your plot your sex. Your characters your characters affect everything else. It's great. All right. Anyway, cool. So do we have anything else for this story aside from what the hell will title? We do the title game. But I think we did this other game of added more. Yeah.

"Yet, something we talked about, is trying to collate up sewed that are about a lot of things you're gonna hear going into twenty twenty we already have some Medicare for all with dual Siad is something that is already being talked about a lot criminal Justice reform. We have a couple of episodes with crasner Miriam, Kaba, Sosa more of those sort of primers of buzzwords that, you're you're going to be hearing. Let's see what should I end on. Fair producer. Chris. This from listen champ, teach. Tiffany. See see, by the way, that's did you get Simpson's joke to know that we this is a real generational divide. I know it's tough, it's, it's real and I remember when my parents or like other people used to make like happy days. References or whatever, and I was just like I don't get what are you talking about? We make a lot of Simpson's references, even though the show has been on the forever just like doesn't have the same kind of cultural import to people of your tender age than it does two old folks like myself. But anyway, there's, there's a moment when in the I think it's the vegetarian episode where the principal Skinner comes in, and he goes, a certain student raisin objection, Lisa s no, that's too obvious. L simpson. Sam there with you. Now, my dad's going to be so embarrassed. I didn't get this center. Is going to be so hurt broken. Okay. So this is where I'm gonna end it might be a little dark in the last reported, you said, maybe I'll do a one hour, solo podcast contemplating buying Zayed's mortality and shockingly, lots of people in doing many people were in one thing, that I would like to do more of one of the things that I think, is interesting about the form. I do think like their space for us to have some conversations that are, like, not really about really anything having to do with public policy or politics and are about just like our inner lives or our spiritual life for, like, like I would like to talk to people that are trying to think through the big questions of what are, what the point of existences, what are we doing here on the planet? Like, how do you think about? Yeah. How do you think about, like what you're supposed to do on this earth? And what it all means and I think that like I've been sort of having some time spent thinking about that. I think partly because I've just just turned forty and I have three kids and. I don't I don't have a specific I was raised as a Catholic, but I don't have a specific faith right now, our faith tradition. I follow. So I do think that like their space to have sort of conversations about things like love or about friendship or about our place in the universe in this format that are not interested. You can't do other places but I definitely would like to pursue a not sure I'm gonna give people the of one hour meditation. We're tally. Although I did suggest someone did suggest Michael Paulin book about sort of psychedelic drugs, and that and people wrestling with those questions and microdosing, and I've got a whole, I've got a few friends that are real, they're, they're really into like the combination, microdosing and meditation jujitsu and get them on the podcast. That's like a whole scene. Cool. Timmy champion. It's great to have you back. Everybody give around with laws to champion. And yeah, we're, we're psyched.

"PSA. Demand home. I love going who's next already said mine. So what was your Carmen sandiego? 'cause y'all mantras you stealing the declaration of independence is right up. Their alley. Carman's keeping mind everyone fair watch the networks one and I don't intend to now. This is old school Kerman. I understand this is where on earth is Carmen sandiego in Cummins. Hit it. Gosh, I had such a crush on her cartoon with. Is commonsense. Yego commonsense. Yego and how that go to Carmen sandiego. Wow. That's yeah. No. I had the game, man. The live action with rocket Pella and the kids who. Dates and then and then, of course, there's her forbidden love with WALDO. Of course, who is Nick h. Can you just imagine going just leaving the clues for the gumshoes who's defined that does sound like fucking here? Okay. You found Ben Franklin three three d five calls. His freaky specs all he can just imagine it located at the crossing of. The wall. And what was it? Hugh Broadway here at the wall. Okay. What do you think of them can except for that one kid that one fucking kid sick it from the beginning that kid van gapes? No, that's the that's due on that a oh that kid. Can you help them the kid who didn't get murdered? I was glad about that the peach five dollars compared to the multiple billions that the main characters got five dollars plus the hundred dollar Bill that gave him. A hundred and five dollars compared to billions. Yes, listen. Well, when you were eight would you have known the difference between one hundred eight dollars billion in terms of what you could actually physically do with it. But the by the time, I turn, you know at sixteen, but you're not teen your eight I know I'd recognize the people on TV later. Son of no way, you son revenge movie revenge revenge events. Events that should be our rewrite flock their night. Then at the end of the you've may that with me this time and gumshoes both. There's always next time wherever she ended in the he remember way more about karma. Cindy, how we literally remember just the song. Right. And the fact that she was hot. Oh, yeah. And having Carmen sandiego. Always I mean. Rock the head the cartoon. She Tokes the player. Yeah. Yeah. You got me this time player. Lou player. Cat cat chat can watch the watch. The clips strangely. I'm probably not going to do that. But I don't want to ruin the Carmen sandiego. That's in my head the one in my head. She thinks I'm ready. Trenchcoat has pocket. Declaration of independence in. Oh, totally who turn. Okay. So I mentioned before that this movie predated the uncharted series of games by a couple years. One could argue that it inspired it. So I'm saying Nathan Drake shows up. And now it's a three way race between Ben gates in. How aunt Nathan Drake. And you know, what there's gonna be a lot more bullets a lot more explosions and a lot more pithy one liners, and I mean character who isn't a jerk and at the end, and they're at the tragic aside the place collapses. Hell, yes. So he doesn't really walk away with much of anything. Because that's just what happened. I thought the they were going to find a treasure, and then it was gonna fucking explode or something like they found it. But they get the joy of knowing they found it, and it doesn't actually materially change the world. You realize that the exist in a different world now. Well, here's the thing. If this is an uncharted game. What ends up inevitably happening is that the treasure isn't such a treasure so much as a thing that could potentially destroy the world if in the first game L, they found Eldorado it turned out to be a golden statue that made zombies. I mean, come on now, obviously and the bad guys wanted to take it when they discovered that aspect of it because hey zombies we can use that as a weapon. Awesome. He doesn't wanna undead army. Of course. Not. Yeah. Yeah. That'd be it makes sense. So in national treasure, plus, a Nathan Drake they get to the treasure room. And it turns out like it. How is is like out of no like all the plagues of Egypt or something? I don't know. Here's the thing though. Actually, I what makes sense wouldn't it? Because it's a lot of Egyptian stolen shit EV. Callahan could have handled all this because handle all. So here's the other thing, though, I'm I'm just thinking about what could have been one of those scrolls from the library Alexandria could have been which is the only thing that they really mentioned that they've definitely found. And you know, what would it be very fascinating is if we found a another couple of versions of the bible because as you know, the bible is is basically an involuntary. So the finding of this, of course, throws the world's religions into complete shenanigans. Yep. Anyway. But additionally this this puts to like why were the Templars involved? It wasn't really for good reasons. It was to hide this information. And then suddenly we have to have a sequel that's not stupid via John Wilkes booth. But rather how to deal with the knowledge that his family or his sense of self where he believes he is the continuation of the knights Templar protecting and and doing the general good. He has to come to terms with the fact that no actually they were assholes to that would have been cool, and it would have been acknowledging the fact that this is a different universe now. But anyway, that's my thought I'm not sure the writers understand what historical discoveries can. Actually deal it's money. And I'm not sure they understand peer review real nice. But anyway, Drake explosions has fair enough. Okay. So that was national treasure. Right. Yeah. It was all right.

"One of the things that stuck out to me in the book one line. There's a line the book that says the last time the earth was four degrees above the band. We've in in there were palm trees in the Arctic. Yeah. That's some. That really hammers it home for me. That's a good mental shortcut for me. Four degrees means palm trees in the Arctic. Hello and welcome to wise this happening with me your host, Chris as all right? You guys know how much I like to try new stuff here on the podcast experiment. New guests new topics things. We haven't done before today is a topic that we have done before. And it's a topic. I think about a lot I'm fairly obsessed with I think it's the single most important issue we face probably the most important issue in the history of civilization and its with a book author of a book that I flew through an incredible book that I'll tell you a little bit about. But I try to think about well. What's the best way to do the intro for this because the topic itself is so intense and the conversations you'll hear is probably one of the most? I don't know. What's the right word like emotionally intense spiritually intense conversations that we've had it revolves around some of the most profound questions of what our purpose on this planet are for the brief time that we get to inhabit it. Why why? We're were here and what we can or can't do during that time. And so I was trying to think about the best way to intro it. And then got an Email from Brendan McDonald who is the brilliant producer who edits our interviews, and he'll sometimes he'll send an Email after taking a passer interview and ended down with some notes about the intro saying, oh, you may need to set this up or or you mentioned this. But you never say what it is. So think about this. I'm just gonna read a portion of Brennan McDonald's Email about this episode that you're about to listen to with David Wallace wells, and he gives me some there's some logistical stuff. And he says now the trickier part which seems both unavoidable and impossible to deal with there is no amount of setup. No amount of rationalization Nome out of stating the precise case of wide all needs to be heard that makes this an easy lesson is arguably an act of emotional violence to put in one's brain nonstop for an hour in stark terms over and over the causes of global misery are extreme culpability in it and the absence of will to change it. It's easier to do a podcast on that reaction. Then a podcast with a topic that prompted a visceral response, I'm obviously not telling you anything, you don't know since you approach the topic from these terms several times within the discussion. But it's just to say that it doesn't actually diminish the impact as a listener of taking this all in over the course of an hour. My feeling is you can just play that as it lays and accept the fact that it may just be too much for some people to hang with for an hour, or the very least acknowledged upfront that this is a known conundrum a kind of feel your pain pre Buttle for what you're about to listen to. So. Are you ready out there in gas land? So that is Brisbane Prenton MacDonald who's a really incredible incredibly talented brilliant area. Unite funny witty a great writer as you can tell who who had. It's our interviews. That's him having listened to author. David Wallace wells, speak about his new book called the uninhabited worth the topic of which is what climate change is doing to the earth. And we'll do the earth with some certainty in the present and very near future. The range of what is possible is enormous, but one of the central thrust of the book is we are under counting. Just how bad it's going to get and how bad it's going to get already baked into the system based on the car, and we put in the air and also how bad it could get in the worst case scenario, which is something that we might that. We humans have control of obviously. But may just fail the test. We may not rain in enough to avoid. Truly genuinely distort pick cataclysmic eventualities. That is the topic of the conversation what we are doing the planet by putting carbon the atmosphere. What we have been doing in the last thirty years since we knew what we were doing. Our apparent inability to stop ourselves from doing it. So far what it will mean for us and our children in the very near future and out into the end of the century and beyond what it means for human life on the planet. What it means about humans and human civilization and human agency as we look into the vast darkness that universe that blinks back at us cold and unfeeling because there is nothing else out there that we know of like us like what we are doing here on this planet, the one project for life that exists in the vast -ness of the universe that we know of and what we are doing to that project right now as I speak to you as you hear the words in your ears from my voice, that's the topic of today's conversation. I found it really bracing. I find it kind of beautiful in a dark cold and lonely way. But it's something it's it's intense as hell, and I think it is as important a book because I read in a long time, the uninhabitable earth by David Wells wells, and he is brilliant and incisive and thoughtful and sensitive Al all this, and is someone that you just absolutely being human on this planet in this moment as we face this challenge together collectively need to listen to.
