"What would you like to promote? I have a podcast that's called query, but you know right now what I'm doing the most that I'm pretty jazzed about is you should come see me if I'm in your town, but how would you know if I'm in your town? I am like obsessed with Instagram right now I've been doing real lately and I think they're extremely fun and so you should follow me on Instagram and you should watch my reels because I am enjoying them. And what is your Instagram Cameron? Oh, it's just Cameron esposito. Great. You're gonna find it. All follow you. Thank you again. One final question. Okay. As two people who grew up in the metro west Boston area. Your person went to college in Boston. Well, Newton get in Boston. Do you have a favorite place thing about Boston? Doesn't have to exist anymore. Could just be from when you were there in the early aughts. But just to satisfy my Boston itch, do you have a Boston thing that you still love? Yes. Honest taqueria. Oh my gosh, yes. Yes. Also, Pinot's pizza. Oh yeah, totally. Totally. Yeah, me too. I'm from Brookline, so oh my God, yeah, definitely. But honestly, it's so good. Steamed burrito. I don't know what that. I don't know why that's anything, but they were so good. And it was also like the first time I had ever had cilantro and I love it. Anyway, yes. Changed my life. Thank you. Thank you for indulging indulging me. Of course. I love a Boston reference even though. It's been many years. Yeah, a 100%. I mean, I'm on a TV show right now that takes place in Boston and weirdly it's the only person on the show who ever lived in Boston. So constantly, I'm trying to work in Boston references, but no, it's not working the same way that it worked with YouTube just now. You know what? We're always here for a good Boston reference. Awesome. Thank you, Cameron. Yeah. Cheers. Dory..

"Know I know it's careless. Hi. Hello. Hi. Oh my God, I got a stretch my arms. I'm the biggest fan. I am such a huge fan of yours. For such a long time. Well, the feeling is mutual, so I feel very excited to be talking with you. Two thumbs up. That's awesome. I always have guessed to introduce themselves. Will you introduce yourself? Yeah, I'm Melinda Lowe. I am an author. I have written 6 young adult novels, most recently last night at the telegraph club, which won the national book award in young people's literature last year, which I am still stunned by. So that's who. Oh, no. No, now, why do you feel stunned? I think it's just because I've been doing this for a long time now. Yeah, that makes sense. This is my 6th published novel and I've been a writer like a working writer since the early 2000s. So it's been like 20 years of this stuff. Well, let's talk about that too. This is how I am first familiar with you. When you were a writer in the early 2000s, can you talk a little bit about the kind of writing that you did at that time? Yeah, I was an entertainment reporter focusing on lesbian entertainment because so I worked for after Ellen, which back then my friend started it in her home office. Sarah Warner Sarah Warren. My Friends are Warren started in her home office and I had just dropped out of grad school to be a freelance writer. So Sarah called me and was like, you just dropped out of grad school to be a freelance writer? Do you want to write an article for my website that basically no one read at the time, right? It was like brand new. So I'm not nobody. Somewhere out there. Cameron esposito was reading. Okay, yes, in 2000 two or 2003. The dawn of the Internet. Yeah, so I wrote an article about Ellen DeGeneres because it was for after Ellen. And back then, it was like the reason we called it after Allen is because after Ellen came out like TV and entertainment really changed for lesbians and bisexual women. So that's what I did. I never expected to be an entertainment reporter, writing about lesbians. This is not like I didn't grow up thinking I'm going to do that. Right. Right. And also I just want to say a couple other things here. I am not totally up on the current situation, but that site eventually had a big sad because it got bought by a large company and for a while, my friend, Trish bendix was editing it and then and then it got bought by Linux, I think that was like during the MTV era. MTV bought it in 2006. And that's when I became managing editor. And I was a part of hiring Trish. Oh, that's great. And so amazing. Who I knew in Chicago at the time? Yes. Yes, she was a music reporter at the time. So we had a really good run with after Ellen in the early years, MTV gave us some support and some legitimacy because no one believes that a lesbian website is real. Right. But if MTV buys you, then you're like, okay, so then we were able to speak to more celebrities basically is what happened. But then MTV eventually it didn't work out forever. I mean, the site was sold a couple of times. I left in 2008 and then the site went on, but it was sold a couple of times. And now it's run by people who do not share the vision. Do not share my reward and I did. Yeah. Yeah. And it's not the same anymore. I directly do not recommend visiting after Allen. And more. I'd eventually, yeah, sorry, go ahead. Please. No, I didn't say. I was just going to say it's really sad because it was a really kind of groundbreaking sight in its day. And I think that it has really become tarnished by what it has become frankly. Yeah. Eventually it got into the hands of some folks that have some strong anti trans sentiment. And that just sucks, you know, for me, I just echo, I mean, I can't imagine how much more you might feel this way, or whatever, but just as a reader, you know, I, when the site was started, I mean, this is why I know Sarah's name. Like when the site was started, I was, I was at a college where it couldn't come out. And also, I couldn't have cable. You know, because I was like, lived on campus and you couldn't have a cable package. So you got like the TV shows that the college purchased, you know, which were like whatever it was. ESPN, and then ABC or whatever it was. And Netflix started when I was I think a junior. So at that point, you could like mail away for videos, which felt like a bit more accessible because I didn't have to go in anywhere. What I was trying to not I was close it. So it's not like I was going to walk in somewhere like rent something. So could my girlfriend and I would order these videos off of her Netflix account. I always say like, at the time, also there were like four lesbian movies. I'm sure if we could find those DVDs in like fingerprint them, we could create a spreadsheet that the government should not have access to because I think like every lesbian was just renting and then returning the same four videos. But I say all this to say, like when I found it after all and it really made such a huge difference to me because I wasn't even able to watch the things that you all were reporting on. So really like my framing for like lesbian culture and queer culture was like your descriptions. And then like maybe like a still, you know, like still so hard to get this stills back then. And obviously you can Google anything now, but it's so interesting to think back to those times and we had small photos. Uploaded. You know, they were talking. I just want to thank you, you know, it made such a huge difference in my life being able to read that reporting and feel like a normal person or like there was something going on that I didn't yet know about from a firsthand experience, but that might be waiting for me and it was really lifesaving stuff. And that is why it's so sad that that's not really a site that I can talk about anymore as a place I it's not a place I visit, I don't go there, I don't read what they have to say, but I did read what you wrote. I wrote with Sarah wrote and I made a huge difference in my life. Oh, that's so wonderful to hear. Thank you for sharing that. It's really amazing to connect with people who read it back in the day, you know? It was a different time. Yeah. I mean, what was that like for you? Did you have a larger queer community? What was your life like at the time that you were writing that stuff? Well, I had just dropped out of grad school. What were you guys before? I was going to get a PhD in cultural anthropology. Okay, well, that's actually what you kind of did. So there you go. It really is because my master's research was actually on the X files. I loved the X files. I totally turned my X file spanishness into a research project, funded by the Mellon foundation. It's ridiculous. It was the peak of my graduate school experience and there was nowhere to go but down and out of theirs. I laughed and I was living in San Francisco with no money because I was a grad school dropout trying to be a queer entertainment freelance writer. There's no money in this. But I had a really, I almost instantly found a really wonderful network of friends in San Francisco. I had like one connection to a high school friend who I'm not in touch with anymore, but she was in San Francisco then and I met her friends. I met her girlfriend. And I'm still really good friends with her girlfriend. I mean, they broke up. I'm not friends with my high school friend anymore, but I'm still friends with her ex. So it's classic tale. Yes. Yes. So I was living in San Francisco when I was doing all this after all and stuff. So I was very much all gay all the time, you know? In the early 2000s. Amazing. And yeah, where are you from? Where did you grow up? I grew up in Colorado..

Well is sort of illustrates like that. That may be like okay. The the idea that we've always been here is totally true but we haven't always Like mixed in the same way as groups of friends as i necessarily see From like younger folks. Now you know there's like a sort of like an older group of lesbian friends and then like a younger group of like queer friends and they're different too it's Generational difference and maybe like a difference in how they talk to each other and what kinds of stuff. They're doing socially interesting to watch those communities interacting with each other had that positive. Because i think also so much has been explicitly for like way queers. I think the idea of like pushing people out that deserves based in the community has been much. Meanwhile we've seen memorize me of like when i was coming up in chicago and just getting.

"Basically clear artists charted and christian music. That'd be amazing. And you know people really have showed up for me. And i think that the thing that we're always conditioned to believe especially within like indies. Faith is that you can't make it work you're alone and you're the problem and what i found was that there were so many other people who even if we didn't have the exact same story resonated with hearts of the story or like i have a song about youth group lock ins and they're like iwa to euchre block in and so i think that finding that they're so many more of us we were never alone. We were told that we were isolated that we could make it work. But there's so many more of us and so yes so then we ended up hitting number one for three days and crazy and then from that point forward. You know. i've been really focusing on my music. I'm putting out another ep. Hopefully this fall and like we're going on tour this november like there it's just been a whirlwind of basically listeners and people saying i want to hear this i i was told point blank by christian music executive that no one would which is crazy. You well no. that sounds. That sounds that sounds right. And it's awesome it so we'll let me so you're going on tour. Is this your first experience like that. Yes how amazing and is it all. Do you know the venues that you're playing in. You know the size and how how many and opening burum katie pruitt. Who's this incredible artists and she is just super super talented opening for her on three dates. And then we're planning a headline show in also november here in los angeles and they're all like dive ours so it's like a. It's like a dive bar. Come to your show in in los angeles. Yeah that'd be awesome. I think. I think it's gonna be really fun time because it's like it's a bunch of juice. My dream of dreams would be for just a room full of people who felt like they're they've fit in who get to sing like praising rage songs however wherever it comes from. If i'm going to last christian show you go to before just like a big f you to the sky than i would be honored. You know you if like you know you. Just you know if you if you're interested in being around other people a favor other people if you've never felt you could wear what you wanted to in christian spaces because of purity culture. I want you to like where whatever you want. Be exactly who. You are no asterix. There's so many christian communities that have that asterix over like come as you are but like you should kind of be this way. I want all of that gone. I just won't people to gather and find can unity and if you feel like mad about it there should be space for that in faith as well sure i mean also. I doesn't surprise me. What you said about that christian music executive but You know it's it. It feels like casey musk's jason isabel sort of where we are living in a moment and were especially for white people who grew up like maybe anybody in there. Let's say twenties thirties and forties. Especially i think that for white folks. I think our social awareness has changed pretty significantly. I mean they're they're the sixties. Also but you know for people like my generation our generation. I feel like. I really was raised in like remember the eighties in the nineties. And i think that that was a lot of lake white denial. That was hard core like taking a lot of stuff back wanting a lot of regulating a lot of movement forward and not that things are fixed. But i do think that's because of being eighties and nineties. There's like there are some genres of things christian music being one of them totally dan. You're in your twenty s four days and you're learning more about the world and it just no longer jives and there is this huge market for. I mean this is actually one thing that's happening for faith..

"Let's say ten years ago maybe five years ago really hitting their stride popularity because they were advertising. Were different. Weird something different. But in fact because of how fallible we all are and because absolute power corrupts and we were given serum so much money and authority in such a short span of time. We're finding out about the behind. The scenes abuses that were occurring and how actually quite regressive an exclusionary their theology really was And so i totally understand something that i still struggle with. I am a member of a church out here in california. But i i'm not a regular attendee. I i really like the the reverend there. I think she's incredible. But i grew up going to church like every day lived in the rectory and so i almost saw behind the curtain growing up i saw about lake. How people talked about money and issues of hiring and like just natural. It's a it's a workplace we forget about like the churches ones workplace and so people are gossiping at coffee cooler. You shouldn't is not great. Then you know like if someone's so didn't wash the robes on time and so now you're in kind gross robes review weeks ago like you're gonna talk about it like. Oh like brenda didn't wash the robes and it it the only the mystery and the like one gather is sort of gone. You know to remember any organized religion. It's just people getting together and kind of agreeing on the direction that their interpretation of scripture is leading them to but at the end of the day is a business like they want people to come in the doors. So they're gonna figure out how to package it away that leases people on so i i still. It's something that. I'm like very conscious of as i like writing christian music which is like it's explicit christian music. It's not i. I call it like praise and rage. It's not praise and worship because there's a lot of anger in it's like praise and rage music and I think that i'm just very aware of. How do i want to enter. Christians vases if i do at all like i wanna write music for people who identify with this experience. But i also like don't necessarily want to go on tour with steven curtis chapman and like eighteen. Me grant no offense to amy grant. She seems sweet. But like you know what i mean like. I don't know if i really want to be held to that weird standard christian packaging. Because that's not me. Not that i mean. Obviously of course is on it. Never they don't want me. I mean okay so yes. Let's let's i have several things to revisit here First of all. I just this is nothing to do with anything. But yes when. I was a little teeny kid and i was an altar server priest assistant in the catholic church. I just remember the day that i like saw a bag that all the hosts come in which are what we call me hers you. It's like it's They're little cracker wave ships or whatever. Yeah wafers yes and anyway you know it's like the church smells like the church it you know. There's like an vibe of incense everything you know going in early. I'm putting on a robe or whatever but in you open this closet. It's like a giant lake cosco. Plastic bag of waivers. First that then you stick your hand in and then pull it out and then put that into like a gilded chalice you know so it is funny to see the I can't quite imagine what you may have seen growing up. But i feel like some of it is just knowing like that the way i come in a giant a huge leg body sized bag than that. Well it should be bodies anyway. Should be ever ever ever being your it if you ever received a bottle of wine from us for a gift that was communion wine. Like if you've ever received my goal that was totally. That's really funny coming a bottle carlo rossi like like look like that's your church is probably doing better than ours. No i think it sounds like yours was going for bulk. Overnight that my dude. There's like slap the bag when.

"And that's what i'm praying to. Jesus it's like. That is the word and the bill and like the gospels were the example that we're taught to me as a kid of what absolute radical love looks like in lived written form. And so when. I'm praying i'm thinking of that. That is like who i am praying to praying to absolutely love in the name of jesus because that's how it was taught to me but i know that in different traditions and cultures that absolute love has been given another name that is just as valid holy and divinely-inspired. And all of it you know once you allow space for all of it like comes rushing in you know when you allow yourself. That's what i think is so frustrating with a lot of my friends and more conservative. Traditions is like your boxing in god. And if you can wrap your mind around the the the i guess the operating system of the divine is that really a creator. That is all powerful. You if you can like like grillo down to like a chore list of things that you have to accomplish in your lifetime and and things you have to adhere to in order to find favor in that divine. Is that really an ultimate beautiful loving creator. If you in our little like peanut brains week he'll be like no no no i got it. This is what this god would vote for legislatively speaking once. That is insane right. Yeah absolutely except for some reason. I can not for some reason. I i've been on a personal question sort of understand a little bit more about what. What manifestations of spirituality organized manifestations of virtuality makes sense to me And for me. If i think about like what is interesting to me. It's a sort of a liberal spirit. Like that's something that i am obsessed with and have been curious about for as long as i can remember and you know i think about The black church in america as having such a basis for that in in preaching and in Tradition and not necessarily On issues of clearness although like church by church and preacher by preacher. But i can understand that. There are some places where i feel like that was better enacted this like liberty of spirit then sort of what i saw growing up because i do think there carts of the catholic church that had that going on And they think there are a lot of parts that don't you know so for me. That's when i really like had to take a step back from being part of an organized religion. It's because i felt like. I read this thing and what i got from. It was that we're looking to liberate and seems like what you're doing is the opposite of that you know and i just couldn't i just couldn't understand. I felt like. I can't be smarter than you like all of you. I can't be sweating. Can't be that. I know this and you've never thought of this. So maybe you don't care or like we're reading this and we're taking you different thing from it And it seemed like such a different thing. So that's that's really for me. What like this sort of schism. That's happened within my own self. That like i've never sort of re. That i've never showed back together. Is like how we can be working for ino liberation as people personally and then culturally and package that at all. It's been very hard to figure out how that could be. How that can be harnessed into a group of people who sit together in yet. Holy it almost never works. I mean think about the things that are coming out about like hill song and those like very like instagram -able celebrity megachurches that you know..

Because i just have many different things so h- shoutout to jordan matt and sierra yet jordan madden sierra. Hold my hands and made this sapan last year because the mike it was just it's just us. Yes have two zero. Like whom i interviewing tomorrow. And then she answers me but if i just scrolled up. I also asked her that two days ago. So it's fine everyone's fine i think that's the one thing we in the past year. It's like everyone's just totally fine. That has been really fine. And that's true You're right and that's true. Let's let's seamlessly transition into me. Saying i always have guestrooms druce themselves. Would you introduce yourself schorr. Mine is grace baldrige. I'm a musician. Who makes music under the name similar. Which is my middle name. And i recently became the first openly queer artists to hit number. One on the christian music charts. And that's kinda what i did over quarantine. I have two dogs. I have a wife and my dad is a priest so that was kinda something i did. Growing up was be in a rectory and i wrote about it and put it out and it became the project that was preacher's kid and now i'm sitting with cameron esposito which is super strange and cool and fun. Oh it's a lovely to meet you inserted. I'm so glad you're here. Yeah i want. And i have already been writing down. Follow up questions from that. Incredible intro thank you. You know i will say you really mia service. I sometimes look i. It's the choose your own adventure and sometimes folks have a very short answer to that question. But i really appreciate the breadth of what you just said. Thank you good. Good i do you to you or too little. Just the right amount where you nailed the shadow of it. you know what. I mean. Following the absolute. Here's here's the first question and this is your certainly not the only artist who does this. But i'm always curious about it. Why not record in released music under your own name. Yeah totally is super intentional. Because my name is grace baldrige and grace's like a super gendered name I think my parents sweetly. It's very funny now. We're like oh we have this baby girl. They didn't expect to have me and my mama's pretty old when she had me and so they were like. It's by the grace of god that we have this baby girl and now This is a podcast. You can't see me. But i have like shaved mullet and like a knife tattoo like the grace of god looks a little different than they probably expected. So i like people who experience my music and kind of gender neutral space and not middle name lends itself to that similar it. You don't know if i'm a girl or a guy when you listen to it in my voice is not really lower anyway..

"Over your shoulder what he needs are. But i think that that thing and not that you're always safe and i'm always unsafe but that major difference is It impact so much the culture that you and i absolutely admitted part of and and the friends that we have in the way that we live our life So what you're describing. It's like i don't know any of this from a lived experienced spin on people talk about like lgbtq community. It's so our are so are so disparate. I have nothing but curiosity about the idea that that you're constantly looking for new people. I'm like keep new people away for. Yeah exactly that's also understandable though. Yeah yeah of course yeah. It's all understandable. I another thing that i'm curious about is whether you've seen a difference a clear difference in The way you're treated on apps based on race over the last ten years and now you're talking about in oklahoma not very many mexican people being around mostly white mostly white is that the because i also that there's a huge like indigenous slash native american population. But i don't know if that's true in your where you grew up. So is it mostly white. Mostly white The middle school. I went to was sort of almost half and half between like We had the comanche kids and farmers kids who were white And then you know. I feel like it's roughly the same surprisingly on the apps. When i'm in new york or oklahoma in terms of how willing people are to say weird stuff to me based on being latino feels like. It's not like new york. Is that much better when it comes to stuff like that. And i think i believe you first of all that nothing could surprise me less than that accents. It's interesting because i feel like for latino men specifically there's this weird much. She's mo- masculine desire narrative that people wanna put on you and it's just like i don't know i don't quite rise to that occasion nor should i have to though it's it's a very strange Storyline for me. I think rate you rate in the book about this moment where you bought like a blouse t shirt and how that was the super bowl choice and actually actually related to that a lot. I'll just say. I think you know in sort of a similar way for me when i i think that if for me being masculine of center presenting person thursday then a lot of pressure to like. Check all the boxes in that category. You know like it truly. The lake in this is from queer people. This is not from cookie. Jeff straight people straight. People are what i have found over time at least today. Most people are like and this isn't people in the street but in my life are like approaching me with a curiosity about like. How do you identify early. What do you wanna wear. And i find where people are like really wanting to sort of patrol the limits of like this but not this okay but this or if you have this kind of make like you know zillion right categories that could fall in like the colors that were the ways that the shirts fit like. What section of the store did you get them in you. Know how like. where's your fade like. Well what number. It's so specific and I felt very patrolled on that within the community within the community in. I think it is. I think it's that so like clothing presentation aesthetic cetera all of that kind of represents a language and queer people are way more likely to be fluent because these are things that think about quite a bit. So it's like whenever we set out of the house A lot of things come into play. The idea of does way in presenting accurately reflect how. I feel how i identify how i want to be perceived how i want to move through the world and there's almost like many philosophical questions that go into a quick person just getting ready for the day or deciding how they want to look like what haircut they get cetera and a people. Just kinda don't have to think about it that way And i think it's more often than you know like straight people whenever they see a person really putting them selves out there sartorially. They can be more likely to be like. Oh that's exotic odd interesting unique. I kinda just want wanna see what's going on there whereas a person can pick up on you know a lot more of the influence that went into a lot of why the decisions were made a lot of the statements that are sort of being put out by someone's appearance and so on that front it can feel like I feel this way. Anyway that i'm much. More thoroughly dissected by queer person looking at me. Then i am by a straight person. Yeah that's so interesting in terms of presentation spectrum. Where do you place yourself like how do you. How would you describe what you wear or anesthetic are putting out. I'm not sure sometimes because like the clothing that i'm drawn to nowadays is very like understated but if you can get up close to it you can notice. It's nice like i like little details. Like i care a lot about stitching and fabric. Were really boring things. I guess but the to me mean a whole lot. But i also met person who it took me so long to understand this about myself because i thought that this was me being ashamed of myself. For a long time without internalized homophobia et cetera. But there's something. I really enjoy about melting into a crowd. Actually there's something. I really enjoy about not really standing out and just sort of maneuvering on the sidelines pretty easily. Because as a writer. I liked to observe. I like to hear things. I like to see how other people live. I like to witness things. And i find clothing. That sorta helps me. You know accommodates. That goal is nice So i usually don't wear anything to loud as you don't wear anything. I i have nothing but respect for people who do a lot of the fashion icons that i look up to where people who'd sort of like you know. They're wearing a full look to trader. Joe's love this like that's great. I'm just not that person in kind of being. Okay with that and reconciling it with this idea that like is it internalised shame or am i just sort of like you know is my tastes more muted and subdued and i think it might can mix of both but more the latter than the former..

I like that a lot. I bought a harmonica. The i didn't realize how. Annoying the between the gap between where i wanna be in my skill level and the sound is coming out of it is so i actually feels like too much of a leap but i've been playing a lot of music and i like music because i have no interest in ever monetize. It and i just love playing the guitar and it's truly just a sort of ambition. Free creative you know. Absolutely yes. I do i I've been swimming a lot. O- has been really wonderful thing it turns out never yet. It's going to be impossible for me to monetize that since. I don't even know where the money is in swimming. I think it's in endorsements won multiple gold medals. But it's not. I don't think it's it's not even on the horizon so i don't have to worry about tricking myself into it like a synchronized swimming type found. No i'm like. I'm like a competitive swimmer. Swimming competitively with people that. I don't know i'm racing them. Love that that's so fun. I liked that a lot. Let's go and they're just like in their own zone. And i'm like racing them back and it's just true dream. Everyone says that swimming is the number one exercise for mental health. It's like really clear. Yeah everyone says swimming is what you gotta do it. Clears your head. Yeah it does. actually. I mean it's i think it's because it's like you're you're moving your body creating all that serotonin but also you will die if you stop. So it's yeah. It's a nice threat element i started. I go to the gym sometimes. It's it doesn't make my mind quiet. Because i'm constantly listening to podcasts. Or checking my phone or on the you know on the machines they have. Tv and It's a i. Think a break from the constant stimulation. I'm so rarely just with my own thoughts in my house. 'cause always got a podcast or the radio or some noise filling me up. I would recommend group fitness classes which i avoided really entire life. Because i thought like i can't do this like this to everybody. Here is gonna like filling if relationship to yoga pants and like i'm not allowed to be in here but they're exactly what you're talking about because everything is moving very quickly and you cannot have earbuds in and you just have to be part of the group which music is plying. Never want to be part of the group so it's been very challenging and fun thing you're thinking of secretly competing with people that don't know you that works in a group setting you're like oh yeah i'm gonna everyone's doing yes. Exactly what keeps going. may. I'm also curious because you said you're going to try to take some time off to you. Do you have a. Do you have a next plan for what you hope to do. After that time off. Yeah i have a bunch. i. I'm developing something that i really hope it happens rubies involved. She's she said in the background. Yeah yes so. I hope that happens. And then me and my co writer joe. Who co wrote philip at an insane thriller movie. That is almost unconditional. It's so not like as no commercial appeal. But i think it'd be good. I think it'd be really good. Yes i'm just. I'm going to go on tour in. The autumn is the planet. Unless there's a third wave. I'm supposed to go on tour in the uk. I don't know with what material stuff i had an hour ready before the pandemic and it's no longer relevant atoll and doing it really fake and wooden got got something going on. My instant is just to like chat to audiences and do crowd work and stuff. But i guess if they've paid for tickets i can't just do that is that is that. Is that a bigger for you than what you previously donors like. Same size type of thing. Yeah it's it's slightly bigger. It's still it's still a you know. A humble little guy only twelve dates and they're sort of medium sized theaters. But it's definitely bigger than what i've done. I'm looking forward to it. I go on tour just myself on the train with tour manager or anything so it does get a little bit lonely. Because you're stay in hotels and yeah. What's it like. Touring the states. Because it's such a massive country must be a bit like canada where you're like everything's spread out. I mean you're flying around you know bautisa did did take. I did take a bus after after making my tv show lake set up a bus tour. Because i because of exactly what you're talking about. I wanted to travel with very very small group. I mean it was four of us but I wanted to not be planes that much. Yeah that was that was a wild experience but has such a rockstar moves. Though that it was cool the fantasy it turns out.

"Little kid zone. I think people were talking about bathrooms here. The like i think they started with was like school. Bathrooms and actually hera fighing terrifying adult situation lake. Alright yeah like like rural public bathroom walk in terrifying situation like something. That actually never happened. There are zero examples of this happening. Us and then it shifted to lake schools. As you're talking about and then you know like locker rooms or whatever but now it's like participation in sports because more kids are identifying a and it seems like a good busy body button for parents like child is going to be unfairly treated because your child is sis and if they have to compete with just it's all nonsense but it really. What are you going to say. I can't remember but yeah just the i'm all about the stats and these things. These nightmare scenarios. That people are dreaming up or they would've been happening already in there. They're just not and what is happening and the stats we do have are all about suicide. Rates in the trans. Yeah yeah anyway attacked in the bathroom and it's not trans person but it is a transfers or have you get like i get hassled in the bathroom by women so much because of all the coverage around the stuff i've noticed a real increase in people like demanding to know my gender and a toilet there on red alert and it's it's all. Yeah i'm glad we got into this fast and we. Yeah actually this may how how. How do you identify. I don't know this. I don't know the answer to that. I mean neither. I think. I think i'm the well recently. Is that non binary and i think. That's something. I felt for a long time and i feel really confident in at the moment. But i'm yeah haven't spoken to my parents about yet but Yeah that's something. Felt since. I was a kid so it's good to have the language around it i think so. Yeah i'm by. I'm non binary. Yeah it feels good to say. And i don't know where where that will lead or what that will be like. But i do feel happier. I think i have experienced display throughout my life. And when people when i would be called like a female comedian or often referred to his allies being even though i tape man and just always would sort of jar with me and Yeah i just feel like now. I have the language on it. But it's like but then immediately when you when you say you have to become a spokesperson for it and it's such a like you know complex thing so yeah. I'm kind of trying to be a spokesperson for people who are just figuring out. That's yeah what about you. I have been using. The gender fluids seems to be helpful to me. I feel like for me. It's like as i've seen more people that i think i have like some shirts and commonwealth come out as non binary wondered for a second lake like is that like the fullness of my experience but he's do also identify as a woman like there are times i totally feel like a woman and then there are times that i feel like nothing that we have any words further times. I feel like dude. It's a whatever david bowie until the swinton have in common. I think i have that thing going on and to me. It's like a plurality of options seems to be working right now so like truly i get what you're saying about the figuring it out like i feel like i came up with this came up with. I like like you know i mean. Certainly it's not like i hadn't heard this term before but but like it's like teen tiktok that was like giving me some examples like what this could look like. I go about generation. Yes you're describing my experience. I think there's a reality. That word is really useful. And i i feel that. Whereas while i i'd say i rarely feel ever feel like i'm a woman and really comfortable. Not but the. But to me yeah. Non binary felt like a term that yeah could income. For some of that plurality. I'm using she and they pronouns but it's like the more people i sort of said i'm cool with both but then when people's use day i do love it and i and i notice that in the more use it the more i'm like this so maybe but i don't feel i think i've been impressed for weeks and weeks about it starts to feel like it's a bigger part of who you are than it has to be like. There's so many other aspects of my personality. That i think are a bigger part of who i am and yeah it's it's the prefix to my name now but i guess you have to anticipate that. Yeah i mean also. I wonder if some of that you know obviously see but i wonder if some of it is a well. See for me. Sometimes it as you're talking like thinking about. When i put out a special that was called rape jokes and then i had to like have people be like. It's like eight o'clock in the morning and they're like so rape jokes and i'm like why did i give myself task. You know that was like three years ago or something like that and you know it's no longer you're kind of press latches onto. Yeah that yeah so like that. Feels like a relief. But i do know what you mean. In terms of you know representing a marginalized experience or identity and then like doing press about it or talking about it sometimes. Not in a forum. That feels particularly safe. Yeah that's why. I'm really happy to talk about it. Forms like this. But when it's like i know your newspaper doesn't like me so or is you know i know. Yeah so it just feels like are you setting me up to and also i i really i wrote the second season of feel good in particular is about kind of.

I feel like this is more the the true the true essence of the now. We're getting that's exact now. It's like now we're going to get one but like let's do the real one. Yeah now do the real shot I'm martin i'm a comedian and other often. I'm having a pretty good pretty time in life. It's a nice day. Yeah yeah he's talking to you. I'm going to be talking to you too. You gotta show. You've show that's great. Thanks that's probably. I'm sure there's probably a high crossover between people who listen to your chest. Podcast in and watch your show. That feels like i think you're right. I just straight up black dot just to yeah just a one to one that ven diagram is just a circle. I think and i remember the last time we talked you. Were like so. What have you got going on. And i couldn't. I can say it had been. I wasn't allowed to set but since then done two seasons. Yeah and actually because the second season is just coming out. Now we're like came out last week or something like that timing. I watched it. But i have but i love the first season and i'm very excited to find out what continues to happen. Thanks yeah it's it's it's a rocky road but i think it's a satisfying ending because that's it now. I'm not going to do a third one bedroom. Yeah that's it. We only have just. Yeah just like a love story with the proper ending. That's wonderful. yeah so mean financially not wonderful. But i don't know that's stupid but creatively. It's you know it's cool. Because i think if you if you were to keep just throwing throwing problems at one couple you'd have to like every at the beginning of every season you have to undo all the personal growth that those characters made just eternally and i wanted them to actually grow and then leave them in a pretty good place.

"Love this so much was last week. Yeah lettering forty b forty in october. Oh do it do the forty thing. Are you familiar contemplative like me absolutely. I mean i think for me. It's it's interesting. Were i'm one thing that's on my mind. A ton is kids Because i'm married listeners. To this podcast know that salt lake. Mary somebody who's like who bod might not be the best place for a child to grow. And i always thought thank you need to still some chronic health stuff and she's boss. She's got an awesome job role for shits in line. She's everything's taken care of. And i always thought that there was going to be like some magical person that like flew into my life and like kids were sort of sorted out right and i know for you. Kids happened lake. Like what i would think of in. The entertainment industry is like pretty early. Almost you know because like when when did you ever. I went however you thirty three. I still think like many people that i know many many women that i know that are like say if they wanna be actors or whatever. They're trying to get to a certain place of shirks status before their body can go through that thing and i know that It might be different if you're if you're like the parents that isn't going to carry the parent that's going to carry sure but i always thought it would be the wooden carrie ann. I'm wondering if i might be the parent that's going to carry association. That is so that. I bring this up because that is mashing up against my fortieth birthday like this is no longer like a theoretical question for like for like joking around times and dinners with friends. This is like this is like the real shit you know like you gotta you gotta get on this rum and you seem to be somebody who's just been able to sort of integrate. A bunch of different things live the life that you want with a family and have the career that you want. How much did you freak out before. Making this choice to have kids. Yeah but like like in when when you do it well you know the process of starting to actually go and find out like about viability and all those kinds of things gets it started for me anyway and then throughout the entire process and a couple years after even it was total intense freak out and like i totally completely blame. You know our society for not giving us any kind of responsible representation or imaging in pop culture tv music etc etc to help us normalize what this would look like or feel like if if you know having kids fell outside of our acceptable norms that we have adopted whether we want to admit that we have are not is big and it gets you every step of the way when you do not think it will and so it's interesting. I'm so fascinated that you know you might carry a man. I would obviously have more astute observations for the person that didn't carry 'em wanted to Or didn't carry and didn't know that there were parts of them that wanted to that they were going to have to contend with or whatever but the whole thing is an turning yourself inside out just turns you turn yourself inside out I wouldn't trade it for anything..

"Other details is name required easy breezy. Yeah absolutely you. Are you in the midst of a pretty busy day. Right now right now did would do press for where wolves within which is coming out in theaters later this month. And we're just doing press for the movie and just announced a september second is also the return of what we do in the shadows season three. So yeah a little bit busy. Just you know chanted up about projects. Yeah i i watched the trailer for where will this within. And then of course what we do in the shadows is a fantastic show. And i think between the two of them. A pretty outstanding casts. Yeah that you with. I'm a. I'm a lucky guy just Obviously you are also part of the outstanding casts her to clarify that again before work but yes. Yeah this both casts are so incredible. I i was just comparing it to playing potato with the group that never drops the potato that like it could go on forever. Just improv skills on both you know Projects are just phenomenal like looking at shadows. I remember season one. We did an impromptu lasted twenty eight minutes where it was supposed to be twenty seconds seen that was like a two thousand sixteen that got cut to like a fourteen second little seen in the show but we didn't for almost half an hour and we knew we can ever use that footage but it was just so nice to to be in a group that were you going. It's like i don't eat credit this to like athletes. i'm not an athlete necessarily but a matching running with someone who likes keeps your pace that his running that you're speeding like wow. You're really fast right. Let's keep going this. And they just like run across america before you know it in the it sounds ideal but it sounds exhausting as you described this hot potato game. I was like we gotta sleep like we gotta have the improv is. That sounds like really fun until the one day that it is not fun. Yeah particular day until it's four thirty in the morning and we've been shooting sixteen hours then it's like okay. Short version of potato stutter. And we all know we're good we also go home. Is that also possibility. I think we projected at this point. We're season three the first season. Everyone's just so you know we're going to do it all you know and you realize we don't need to do two hours of improv. We could do a couple of minutes because we want to give it our best think. That's what really kind of comes across on screen in both the film and with shadows It came out the way it did because we did everything we could. You know i mean. I was also when i was watching the trailer and thinking about this. Why are you in vampire. Where wolf stuff. What does that is that. Is that just like these gangs. That does that line up with an interest. Do you have interest in horror. I don't necessarily go out. You know just you know. I got shadows a by by accident. But i found out about it by accident night. I wasn't looking to go into a vampire show. I went to a wine and cheese night. My friend invited me at the last minute. Meaning michaels now. There's a state Meaning like now She invited me to come hang out with their newborn her husband. Her brother who lives in la are still and that was it. So i went over for tonight. And then i met a friend that she invited Yvonne and we just hit it off had a good time in the next day. I got a text from unknown number nets yvonne and last night. I think you're so fucking funny. You should from beyonce's new show and i was okay. I don't do those kinda films. Yeah absolutely and their shows no. I'm serious. It's what we do the shadows and i was like oh like the film against the tv show now but you have to hurry because they're gonna book this character in the next week. Apparently they had cast everyone by by then they had casts cave on matt. Natasha everyone was cast were starting production in two weeks and they couldn't find yet also in the script. General was twenty years older. Than i am so i could see why wasn't an option to go into the ocean. Because they were like now. He's too young his young So when i went in through basically nepotism. Because i met someone at a party. So hollywood and damien i to ask how good are you at being at parties and tell me every like working about wine and cheese night. What's i think the the rule is. I'm really good at why cheese so i i just really enjoy cheese in it. Just it's a happy place. So i think you know speaking in just sound like on in the u. fork and so people are like. Wow he's early having a good time. The swine cheese a lot no it was just. We didn't really talk about the industry or anything. We're doing human beings talking about this. What was going on or like you know. Ran things that nothing to do with the industry. Nothing to even say that. I was actor that she just you know i think talked to my friend was like he's really finding probably got the information from her. Obviously and then text me and it was by some weird flu like. I got the at the last minute. I i wanted to go me. Allison jones who've allison jones casting. She's cast everything like bridesmaids the office. Fresh golding. Like it's insane like just to meet her is a hollywood. Royalty and i was comfortable meter before so she wasn't there. She was susan linden auditioning for characters. Stop in meet her so bad.

"Back at added first and and yeah got to stay up there and pretend like it's going well so that the freak out they don't want to think it's going badly then you lose them but anyway back in like january. I like. i woke up in the middle of the night. I couldn't sleep. And i was like i'm riding Standup said i have to write the stand up set. Alright i wrote like a whole stand upset just like on my notes app and like it started with me imitating jerry seinfeld so you know it was not cutting edge stuff really regional Yeah that's my experience. No so bad. So i tried running by my grandma. She didn't think it was funny. That is not the audience to start with you. Give a grams last. That's with your tested stuff. Yeah yeah yeah okay. Yeah try someone else. Yeah you gotta run up by somebody else. Does it feel disappointing. Because you said i may never tour on this record but like you know that's alright or whatever. Is that really all right. Because i feel like how does that actually feel. I mean it would be a bummer. Because it would mean like state of the virus pretty bad but i do have tours planned in the fall and i've seen been seeing a lot of artists like announced shows in the fall. And me too. Yes and so now. I'm like kay gotta rehearse the album now like i think it actually might happen but that was sort of my mentality. When i decided to release the record in february was okay. Sort of just have to be okay with this being like maybe not like getting the full promotion it guts because of a pandemic and and and i just have to be okay with that. I guess but. I don't know it looks like waring's going to happen. This is like not an annoying question. it might rain. Righty how old are you. I'm twenty two. Yeah that's that makes sense kind of where. I would feel like sixteen. No i just. I wouldn't i would never do. I would never do you like that. Sixteen absolutely not but i would. I was just at twenty three. So yeah ooh that real next year. Twenty two and talk to me a little bit about your you know in music. Twenty two could be an h. Somebody starts it could be ten years after somebody picked up their first instrument So where where is this for you in your life i started. I started playing music. I've been playing music since middle school. I think ever since. I like had my first crush on somebody you know and then we always that related. Hang on a sign. Yeah Do you have those lyrics of that song. I have this like old song book. It's like turquoise songbook and the first fees ever wrote we're in there. I think the song was called like falling for you or something on my god. Did this person here it. No i think my whole family was like this is great. Never play this of this molly kamov. I don't know. But yeah. I don't know and then i would put stuff on soundcloud in high school and then take it down so i got nervous. I started like really releasing music my freshman year of college so when i was like and then i dropped out at college. I mean i think that's i think it was interesting about that is interesting about that. But something that i'm thinking about is sort of ben. True as long as music has been as long as human beings have been playing music. There's people that started young and people that were writing young. But i but obviously the internet makes it changes things a little bit because there is a way to distribute that music lake. I mean you're not. You're neither mozart like playing in some random room for whoever happens to be there. Nori like waiting for the record deal in order to be able to get In order for people to be able to listen. So i'm thinking about you know the that you're talking about an actually having people that i didn't know my thoughts and that just that sounds that's so different than my experience because i was Who's doing lake at the time that you were putting stuff on soundcloud and then taking it down.

Athlete Chris Mosier on Being a Trans Athlete and the Queerness of His Sport

"Everyone my name. Is chris mosier my pronouns him his i am a How you just stumped me in the first question how you want your audience to know me. So i am the first out a transgender athlete to make team usa. I am an advocate activist for transition in sport. My mission is to make it easier for every person who comes after me to make sure that everybody knows that they have the opportunity to play the sports that they love and be their authentic selves. And i'm the founder of trans athlete dot com which is leading resource for trans inclusion in sports. And will you also talk about your sports specifically like what. What is your specialty. Yeah definitely this is fun. So i started off as a triathlete when i first transitioned actually before transition identifies a trans man. I was raised in socialized. This female grew up playing girls and women's sports but in two thousand ten decided to make medical transition transition categories. Kind of the short version of this is that. I wanted to make sure that i didn't lose my opportunity to play sports and so delayed transition for a while before. Actually the saying that transition. Because i didn't want to lose my ability to compete in sports so triathlon was the first part swim bike run and then i moved over to duathlon so duathlon is run bike run. It's a lesser known sport. It's associated with triathlon. It's super fun. And i don't like cold water so it's perfect remain and then last year in january twenty twenty. I went to the olympic trials for race walking so i was first trans man to make it to him. Men's olympic trials and i was in race walking. It was a sport. I picked up the year before Because i know somebody who is race walker and they recruited me and it was super fun. Okay this is this is. I'm sure the question that you get the most often after saying that. But how difficult is it to not break into a run when you are race walk. I just want to really understand the mechanics of like. I know my body can go faster than this if i do this other thing but the rules are right right right. So are you familiar with the rules. Let's talk about it. Yeah no i. Don't i mean i've seen it. I've certainly seen it. And i would imagine. That are very specific. Rules on what your body can do. That has to be true right right right right so the difference between a run and race walk is that your leg has to be straight when it hits the ground so your front leg has front knee has to be straight when it hits the ground and then you can't break that knee so bended until it's under your body. Ramen other thing is that one foot has to be on the ground to the human eye at all times so it has to look at if you slow down wow will do liftoff but so it has to look like you are on the ground at all times with one foot. So how hard is it like. It's funny that's not. Actually the question that i get the most the question that i think. I'm pretty interesting with my nose. It's around race walking like come easy on yourself. Question i get the most around race. Walking is was it harder to come out as a trans man or as a race walker. Which i love because it was way harder to come out as a race walker at this point in my life. If we're being honest. I didn't tell people about it for a while because i was like super because it's like the queerest sport that i could think of t tried to to go like You know in in the most wonderful

Because i used to be just like so wild and vulnerable and just like not even second gasset. I wanna just like post all the time. And then i would say like the past probably like the past year year and a half. I've just kind of stopped practicing that vulnerability and like opening myself up because it has become scarier for some reason and And so yes. I'm just trying to practice that. And be more open. Because i mean that's that's how i've gotten my start which was just being open with who i was and the truth in the reality of being gay in this industry in the ups and the downs and i think You know sometimes when you don't practice it you can. It can get scary. Yeah do you. Do you remember something that changed. Was there a specific event or that that made us recession. Guess being that open. Yeah i mean. I definitely think that i you know. I've been very open with my mental health. And you know. I've definitely battled depression for many years and i would say am actually on the other side which is really the most amazing thing to accomplish adver but i think by being on the other side. I've realized that there's just there a lot of lack of confidence a lot of like i said Courage and this the vulnerability aspect of it because i was in such kind of like a separated darker place It wasn't practice. Because i was staying too. You know in words not sharing things and kind of just going through what i was going through and you know i think everyone who battles mental health and are going to something you don't necessarily want to share it because it's it's hard it's hard as it is To kind of like confronted yourself. And so i think that that was like a big component of just kind of this like separation. I think i had with who i was and what i was going through and then social media and now that i'm on the other side i'm trying to You know implement that in practice up

And then i think for me because this has been so this becomes a common question in our community especially on like on a panel or something and they have this haircut. I think there's a lot of assumption and anyway. It's not that i don't want to be asked. I simply feel that. I don't know what to say. I feel exactly the same. And it's something that is so it's like. I suspect that there is like a system of how i want to be referred to but i do like like you said i don't i almost feel like by talking about it at all. I'm like. I'm like drawing attention to the wrong thing it's like for me. Pronouns are sort of like they're part of how i interacted in the world like. I'm actually very bad about 'gendering myself. Because i don't use pronouns for myself just you know i but like it's more about how people refer to me and so when i'm over here doing my own you know gender thing and then someone's like what are you and i'm like i don't know i'm just like i don't wanna like kinda like get really into it and talk about. I just don't know. Yet i just don't like you said i don't have a huge need for how i want to be referred to. It makes you feel good when people care when people put the effort into lake. You know referring to me. In a way that i want to be referred to. But it's like it's a. It's a hard question it's just. It's so much bigger question than it. Seems like i think at first some just still figuring out. Yeah i hear you. Well and also again i would say that the complicated thing about this question and like so many things in life is that it's i think for some people less complicated than others and so and that's true for so many things right like there's there are so many things that people are sure about that. Other people are less. Sure about. And so i think for me. It's like i would never want to take away anybody else's opportunity to be sure about themselves But you know i. I think that this is actually part of the core experience. Even pre opponent discussion right. It's like a closed. you wanna wear. How do you wanna wear your hair like. There's a lot of different things about the queer experience that i think you know. Some people like have a real sort of idea of what they're doing and and how they want to be seen in how they want to be understood in them. I think i think some of us don't and i think it's all of that is really great. Actually i think that's human experience rate could it. This is true also for like what do you want to do with your life. Do you believe in. God like all of the questions that are like the big human questions i think it's a sliding scale of understanding. Yeah i think this might be just like sort of anecdotal. But i feel like i've noticed. I've seen a rise in people who are pronounced flexible this past year. Especially and i think there's a lot of that is like you know we're all kind of i think everybody is sort of going through. It might not be gender for everybody. But everybody's kind of going through like we're all stuck at home. We only are interacting with each other over zoom and over the internet and like who. Who am i right now. I'm not having all input from other people in my life from acquaintances people on the street. It's just like you know like like how who exactly in line. How do i want to be perceived how to present myself in this in this space where we're kind of isolated and so i feel like i for me pronouns. It's like they aren't some deep personal thing. There's not like a true part of my soul that is like oh yes. That's how i want to be referred to and for some people it they really do. Have that but for me pronounced more of a tool. So it's like it's when you're going through life like i enjoy being called here because there's a friction there. I don't particularly look or sound like he. And so when someone calls me he that gives me like a little like a thrill because it feels like that tool that pronoun tool is someone who's like paying attention to me in listening to me. I have expressed that. There's a masculine part of me that i enjoy. And they're paying attention to that. And so that makes me happy.

Author Angela Chen Discuss her book 'Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex'

"And what. I really liked about this book because i think a sexuality something that's so unexplored culturally. It's just it's it's it's such a service to the book and also the community and yourself it's written both in a way that feels journalistic but also that feels inviting. How intentional was that. That feels like that must have been pretty intentional. It was intentional but it was also uncomfortable. So i told me more in my day job. I'm actually science and tech journalist. I do one health. I do a lot of stuff on. Ai and you know is going to take over the world and replace us you know that. Gonna stop which. There's just not a lot of room for personal narrative where you're writing about a i like it that way you know. I liked being a journalist. I like talking to other people telling their stories. So when i spilled the book i knew that it would have to be personal because it was important to me that a sexual person write this book. And if you're going to have an author you might as well use that experience. And i could be a guide of sorts people reading the book but it didn't come naturally to me because i'm not a culture reporter general or a sexual relationships reporter and i kept asking myself. Why are you doing this. This is totally a different part of your career. Even now people will be like. Are you going to buy a sexuality and unlike navy but maybe just continue writing about at so it really felt like while this was obviously an enormous privilege and honor to be able to write this book it felt like it was a necessity because it's not where my natural inclinations go toward. Okay well then. I guess my first question is are the machines taking over and when and who is the most important savior of our time. Is it sarah connor in actuality. This is actually very complicated question. I think they're not taking over yet. I'm much about climate change. That's talk on my mind but you know lots of smart people working on this smart well-funded people so hopefully we can. Hopefully that helps you sleep at night. I mean what helps me. Sleep at night is watching the terminator franchise so versions a bit of a catch. Twenty two the moment then that you decided that this was important enough for you to like break that membrane between what. You're more comfortable in like what was there a particular impetus for that or was it a sort of slow burning. This story needs to be told eventually kind of thing. I think it came out of this feeling in patients you know. I think it's like i think many of us have this experience. Maybe when you're younger and you discover like a new tv show or something and then you just wanna talk to everyone about it and then after a while whenever you're explaining something have to take like the first twenty minutes to this is the tv show here the characters and then you're like can i tell you my very and it kind of felt like that like my relationship with is action was like that. I didn't realize i was ace until i was in my twenties and realizing it. I had to go digging for it. I didn't have to go anywhere back. When i thought i was just straight woman. That was pretty much. You know what was expected of me. But i thought there were so many smart ways of thinking about the world is actual lines represented but you wouldn't have access to them because it wasn't in the culture to find any of that you'd have to be truly online in a way or you know have to rewrite academic books and so i kept trying to talk to people about you know the ways that it's actually makes everyone not just people who happened to be as like question like what is sex with sexual attraction. What is romantic attraction. How should we think about the world. But then i got tired of doing that. I lake tedtalk. Welcome to talk. Here's what it is. I wanted to skip that and get to the part where we are thinking about. What is that we all want. What what is pleasure. What if we center that their lives instead of sexuality and so i think that was the moment that feelings impatience that had so many people as or not would benefit from this perspective that i was like while. I am a journalist. I've always been a journalist. Maybe i should do this. While i have so many follow ups I want to talk about the this down. Because i want to talk about what. You're talking about about centering pleasure. I think that's really important

"Lucky for me. Growing up in a family where i was. I'm the fourth generation. Also cillian yorkers luckily in new york. Everyone uses her hands. I mean just as such a part of who we are new yorkers. My mother actually went to school. You know she came out with a lot of experience. Is you know in the hearing community and <hes>. You know my mother often would go to studio fifty four new york actually. She is big dancer. Used to go there all the time and is very very very good within reacting with hearing people so when we were kids of course my mom was very much sort of that bridge right. She kind of taught us how to you know work interact with young people. My my mom always really pushed on her to play on hearing leagues to play sports. And you know when of course we would always asked like. Why are we playing here kids. She's they at some point. You have to learn how to interact with them and now looking back that experience. I'm incredibly grateful for that. Gave me right. I never really felt a big difference between hearing people enough people. I really more or less felt that hearing people just spoken to language you know. They were kind of a foreigner arms kind of foreigner all of our raw close friends in the neighborhood role hearing so it really wasn't interesting experience. Certainly and that of course contributed to my experience on america's top model and now with my career in the industry ninety percent of the people that i work with live in the hearing world. So you know for the first twenty five years of my life. Things are very different but of course really impacted that. I'm so thankful you know. But i definitely wasn't sheltered by any means we'll sports that makes so much sense is a great idea especially because baseball has signs. What what sports did you play. Yeah absolutely absolutely <hes>. To be honest with you. I played just about everything i could. You know baseball. There's actually a really interesting history. You know dating back to sign for strike were to ball or to all the different gestures and those were actually created years ago by deaf. Baseball players name was dummy hoy and he was the first baseball player who ever made it professional in the eighteen hundreds and when he got into the police he communicate with people and so they developed a essentially a system of hand signs or hand signals and the rest is history. Now we see that you know those hand signals have made it to all sorts of other sports how we communicate across fields and yet because of percent while i was i was reading the gala. That is where the football <unk>. Huddle originated because folks were signing and needed for anybody listening that want anybody to be able to signing. And they didn't want people to see the signs right yet against playing against another football team. Obviously if you're communicating sign language across the football field you can see you know across the football field. You can see exactly what the other team is planning for. So that's where the huddle was invented. And you know i. I don't know why hearing people thought it was great idea but you know i guess they really love it now. You see it on. Tv every sunday right. I mean i get. I mean maybe it also just. Is that thing of you know feeling protective in lake. You're part of a group which again would be mood. Which makes so much sense. Why your mom would suggest that like it's it makes perfect sense and i also curious now that i'm like realizing 'cause i just had the we're listening. D do you interact with podcast you personally as a human to be honest with you. It's kind of another thing. So podcasts are typically just done through spoken english in with and with a lot of them. Dan provide transcripts which pretty extensive and occasionally. I'm happy to to pull it up and give it a read through but it's not the same experience as it would be. You know to listening to a conversation you know if there were podcast with you know say sign interpreting or something that i could essentially listen to you through my eyes. I think it'd be a lot more comfortable and i. I might even be a fan. But i think it anyway but you know honest with you. I don't have any favorite podcast. Really come to mind. That makes perfect sense. I mean i will say. I do not think it is a an art that is accessible like. I just don't think that it's something that folks are focused on making it accessible for for hurry appearing folks and i won't even say as a comic you know <hes>. A lot of times. When i've provided in asl interpreter. Which i've done many times. It usually comes per request. Which again is something that like. I could continue to work on <hes>. But it is it is the rise is on the deaf. Hard of hearing person to send me some random tweet or to get in touch through my management overbooking. The show and that has happened many times. But like one fucking bummer to have to constantly work to be accommodated right right. Definitely definitely you know. It's it's always a matter of reaching out but it's just so become part of a part of what it is you know. We oftentimes which wish accessibility just come to us. Yeah you know it's funny. I actually for <hes>. Trump's large meetings and for his large rallies you know he he doesn't provide interpreters and so a group actually sued the white house and finally they are putting access and transcripts up live while lawsuit and that makes much sense to that that that it would be important. I mean to read what he's saying that specifically that person versus being able to see what he's saying comprehend what he's saying in a visual format like that is so it is so impactful. His presence is so impactful in a negative way. But it's it's part of stuff fidelity. You're absolutely right. you're absolutely right. Yeah i mean honestly he downplayed the whole thing right and continued to deprive millions and millions of americans. You know of their access to participate in the democratic system and to vote. I mean it's just while do you think there is there any is there anybody. Is there any art form were. Who's doing a good job with this. Is there anybody doing a good job. Making things accessible for you like just in general. Yeah i mean now that. I guess now that you're saying time like this feels like it would always be on you. You know like i just. I can't think of something. And i thought maybe you had that like magic. You're like this team. Yeah i mean it is definitely a constant. It's constantly constantly a lack of access <hes>. But yeah. I can't think of anyone specifically while i mean i i will pursue for my partner is. She has an autoimmune disease that affects her energy level and affects her ability to get around show also and she can use some if she's walking sticks like as a as an aide but the particular ones that she uses their hiking sticks so i think it can look like i think it can look like stuff's going on right in the she also visit visually. She's one of those people who doesn't necessarily look like she's dealing with right and <hes>. It's been really. I opening traveling with her that so much.

Abbi Jacobson On Coming Out at 32

"Like you've had sort of a different process with speaking about your identity than like I did for instance, like I I like came into public life. I had a very difficult time coming out and then. Processed some of that through being on stage but by the time I was. At all on television or anybody had any context for me I already had been. Really worked out a lot of things. For myself personally. Yeah. In I, don't know that that is your experience. That is not my experience at all. I know I think like. In a way and this is also why the experience abroad city was like. So important to me and I think Alana would feel the same even though. We didn't quite explore like Alana. Alana on the show was like the epitome of fluidity from the get go. That was like what we leaned into. And my character was like you know we use so much of ourselves and like you know obviously I, hope that also you can see the difference in our in me and my character, but like we lean until a versions. At different times but throughout the course of making that show I kind of just. Fully just like realize a lot about myself and Realize my queer nests and. That I was also. Completely into women to and. Dated a woman and and really wanted to at that moment really wanted like do that on the show to like I'm giving so much to abby the character like let's do this here too and like 'cause it was it was such a late in life. I was. I. Got Pardon. Me was like Jesus what an idiot like you went to art school like Maura, missed opportunity grow like what about you know like? And it was. You know. I don't know I think for me and a lot of COMEDIANS and writers I'm like I just. I'm just working off of my experiences like that's my main like brainstorming well to like explorer onscreen or in in writing or whatever. So I'm going to do that here and then I like did also. The like did write a book of essays. That's very much about that. I'm stumble a little when I talk about this too but I'm also like totally open book about it but does that make sense like yeah it was a very late in life and I also felt like. Wow I would want to I. Wish I had to watch. That was that. You're like. I read I had a book to read that was that because that would have been like great. I would loved I would have found a lot in so. In the same way that. We were like, let's explore friendship and show as much of our friendship in the nuances and all that onscreen. It's like let's do the same for this because my experience was like happening simultaneously. So. Did you feel fine with that the whole time like the fine with the idea of exploring this On Kane, real. nodded. Guys it was fine with it. It's really listen I was. I think we did it onscreen probably like. I mean I'm thirty six I only started dating women when I was thirty two, this is not that long ago. But I also like not for happened. I was like. You know as I as soon as I like, it's it's it's very funny too because this thing just happened in it's only good I'm like whatever people can. Think, whatever like I posted something recently because it was like national coming out day. It's so funny like people. Are Pretty Open but I. would. I was really big details I just were. We played with this this like bid on the show when abby dates a woman, which is like. the when she dates gives her this hat and we like talk about sexuality through like Alana's like so like are you like? I didn't realize he wore hats like we like with this thing and I posted this photo of me with the me from the show. It's like me and that that from that episode and I was just like. You know I tried to. Just be like recognized like. Oh I m. someone that like I just didn't like I didn't like. I feel like I was so like kind of. Covered up like blocked from like my own sexuality for like my whole life and didn't didn't like. Didn't allow myself to see it until I was. In my thirties. So I'm like listen I. Just wrote something like it took it took me. So long like deal is this about myself like to all late bloomers or whatever, and I think I got texts from like people I went to high school with and they were like, I'm so proud of you like this was like two days ago. And I was like I truly was like what are. What's going on like for what and then relieve your post and I was like? Oh. Yeah. I like I guess whatever regardless all that to say like I think people just. came out like two days ago. Volcan can also like for me I'm like I was I do I like My. I would identify as clear. I it's so you didn't even ask this question, but it's been something I've been thinking about Cuza this stuck in thing. because. I think the What's the the? The bisexual invisibility. Like that that I might prone to be like, Oh, I am by, but I'm also like. I don't know why feel a bisexual means. For me anybody listening when I hear it. Like it means like you fifty percent this in your and I'm Mike, I feel more like that's changing all the time sometimes I feel like like Knob like eighty percent of women and Mike No it is. You know what I mean so. I don't know you didn't even ask but that's like what's been on my mind when All this shit just like came out this week I'm like what's going on? Friends.

"I was guessing truce themselves, introduce yourself. Yeah I'm Abby Jacobson. I don't know if I think I'll just like say that I don't think I know we had a good. Self. Announcer. Why does I have a question about that? Because you know I think you are somebody who like. You had such a successful television show. Pretty early in your life I mean. What's assume and? You're right. Right. End. and. But. Then you've also written books. You have a new show that you're working on right now I wonder like, do you do you want to be like? I maybe Jacob from this or is that like no longer fun to do. It's interesting I think I think right now at this point in time. You know broad cities like. We ended and. I think we ended in twenty nineteen I'm truly like what where are we? Now? We don't know our time is just so. Fast and slow you know. But I believe it. Did I truly Mike did I end in twenty. Yes I ended in like it ended in. March of Twenty nineteen. And while it's like the thing I'm most known for and I used to like I want to do all this other stuff on my. I love that show. I Love I. Love. Red. City. I fear I will never have an experience like that. For the rest of my life I could be happy from broad city I'd be happy with that. Just because I love that experience so much I'm like why not? I'm really happy for you that that's the answer I'm Suzanne. Slick? I think that there's I think that that could just as easily go the other way you know like for somebody that didn't have a good experience and that I'm sure visible bad experience like what a nightmare and then they'd be like like every time. I did I knew and doing other things but it sure D- INTRO MIA's that I've mom. I miss it. I miss it a lot. So I'm I'm fine. What are you talk to me about what you're up to rate now roy in your? In your television world because I actually don't know what is going on in terms of shooting. Like I know that you were working on their own and I know that. Some Powell's even it's awesome cast this stuff us. Photographs, people wearing. Baseball Pants. Going on right now in terms of Cova Dennis. Yep Me neither in the in the broader sense because I'm like when anytime I hear of somebody shooting him like you're shooting right now but so we have had a very law this the leader on. TV reincarnation is you know we wrote this. I. We had a initial room in twenty eighteen and that was when we were. It was more of a half hour. A little more heart little more like comedy forward. And then it was supposed to initially an Amazon who knows that they're gonNA like what they're not. Supposed supposed to kind of go room to series, and then they were like we're just gonNA. We should just make a pilot and. You're like, what? Like we just wrote this whole thing and they're like we're just GonNa make a pilot and we really want it to be an hour. And in that moment will Graham and I who is my partner doing this we were like, let's move like it was it was not the movie. The characters are very different, but it was like, let's move farther away from the movie in terms of the All American Girls League, that was like half of the show and Sorry this is like a longest answer ever, but we ended up then took taking a rewrite that pilot and then we ended up shooting the pilot, which is the the photos you've seen full period. Right before. Go. Like we shot in February. And then and then we have like a a good a good two and a half weeks in the edit in person. And like March thirteenth at that point on I, we had been in the edit, which is like you know it's like so valuable to be there with the editor and then the rest of it we did virtually but it's like we just got that finished I. Mean we finish it in April and I'm like that was just like I can't believe we we got we shot that manage shoot if and then it got picked up. So now we are truly Monday beginning again.

"I was guessing truce themselves, introduce yourself. Yeah I'm Abby Jacobson. I don't know if I think I'll just like say that I don't think I know we had a good. Self. Announcer. Why does I have a question about that? Because you know I think you are somebody who like. You had such a successful television show. Pretty early in your life I mean. What's assume and? You're right. Right. End. and. But. Then you've also written books. You have a new show that you're working on right now I wonder like, do you do you want to be like? I maybe Jacob from this or is that like no longer fun to do. It's interesting I think I think right now at this point in time. You know broad cities like. We ended and. I think we ended in twenty nineteen I'm truly like what where are we? Now? We don't know our time is just so. Fast and slow you know. But I believe it. Did I truly Mike did I end in twenty. Yes I ended in like it ended in. March of Twenty nineteen. And while it's like the thing I'm most known for and I used to like I want to do all this other stuff on my. I love that show. I Love I. Love. Red. City. I fear I will never have an experience like that. For the rest of my life I could be happy from broad city I'd be happy with that. Just because I love that experience so much I'm like why not? I'm really happy for you that that's the answer I'm Suzanne. Slick? I think that there's I think that that could just as easily go the other way you know like for somebody that didn't have a good experience and that I'm sure visible bad experience like what a nightmare and then they'd be like like every time. I did I knew and doing other things but it sure D- INTRO MIA's that I've mom. I miss it. I miss it a lot. So I'm I'm fine. What are you talk to me about what you're up to rate now roy in your? In your television world because I actually don't know what is going on in terms of shooting. Like I know that you were working on their own and I know that. Some Powell's even it's awesome cast this stuff us. Photographs, people wearing. Baseball Pants. Going on right now in terms of Cova Dennis. Yep Me neither in the in the broader sense because I'm like when anytime I hear of somebody shooting him like you're shooting right now but so we have had a very law this the leader on. TV reincarnation is you know we wrote this. I. We had a initial room in twenty eighteen and that was when we were. It was more of a half hour. A little more heart little more like comedy forward. And then it was supposed to initially an Amazon who knows that they're gonNA like what they're not. Supposed supposed to kind of go room to series, and then they were like we're just gonNA. We should just make a pilot and. You're like, what? Like we just wrote this whole thing and they're like we're just GonNa make a pilot and we really want it to be an hour. And in that moment will Graham and I who is my partner doing this we were like, let's move like it was it was not the movie. The characters are very different, but it was like, let's move farther away from the movie in terms of the All American Girls League, that was like half of the show and Sorry this is like a longest answer ever, but we ended up then took taking a rewrite that pilot and then we ended up shooting the pilot, which is the the photos you've seen full period. Right before. Go.

Peppermint discuss performing virtually in quarantine

"Everyone I m peppermint and I am. A. Citizen of the, world. You know what? We haven't had that intrigue yet. That's the of those intros. How how is your energy rejoining us after having already been at another? Some sort of virtual event today. Yeah. How is your work going right now? Are you finding that you're able to work in these times? I'm doing a lot of work, but it's not necessarily. I found I found myself in in in the wake of. Summer Twenty Twenty doing a lot of the the work that Folks like US often do I'm to enlightened people or at least an. Open, the door on our experiences to help bridge a lot of those gaps and so there's a lot of conversations taking place this summer in light of everything that's been going on, I would be a lamb with protests translates matter. with with pride you know you know over the summer taking on it obviously and much needed different kind of feeling than it had and so. I was I was I've been engaged in a lot of those conversations and I have been able to. Have a couple of. Moments here, and there I did a a drag show or to myself I have an album that I produced and I'm going to be releasing next month and so there's little things like that. I would be I would totally be lined. I said Oh this is just Like, last year and it's totally a great substitute. Yeah I mean first of all congresswoman album and second of all the candor I think that that's that makes a lot of sense to me I guess. have been seeing a lot of drag performers transition to like a more virtual space but mine used to I mean I've I've done stand up in a virtual space as well it is. It's doable but it is totally bonkers also you know like it's not it's Doable. On doing drag. Virtual. How does that? It's it's literally I. Don't know. I mean obviously there's some some a little bit of an essence of stand up comedy for other lives like drag performance Look. It's like you can. It's it's just ego blasting because. Five drag show at a concert or at a venue where it sold out, you're in it for the minute you hit the stage like this going to i. mean you know everybody has bombs every once in a while but for the most part, if you know your stick and you know your routine and you know yourself, it's GonNa go great. They'RE GONNA love. It can be very happy. They came for a drag show that's what they're getting. In you know there's so many things that can bust up the energy and be like you know total buzz kills in the in the era of zoom drag shows you know like the Internet going round wrong. People are like what's the link? I can't get in you know all that's up and then you're doing the show and you're like doing lip synching that like you know Madonna are Donna Summer Song and you realize when your neighbors are banging on the floor which is. Sealing your floor. The Hell Up, and then all of a sudden you're just as somebody in your living room dancing around. You know and you're like Oh. Gosh. What am I doing? There's one. I got to stop
