Fresh update on "cast" discussed on Larry Elder

"Was not in this body four years ago. But what I observed a Savo ter is a citizen of Illinois four years ago were troubling evidence of the fact that not every vote was being counted. Enter from New York. Mr President, this'd is obviously a difficulty debate for many reasons, but I commend the senator from California. For joining with members of the House, most particularly Congresswoman Stephanie Tubbs Jones in raising the objection because it does permit us to air some of these issues. Why did a computing error in Franklin County initially award 4258 extra votes to George Bush? In only 638 people had actually voted. Thankfully, they fixed But how many other votes? Did the computers get wrong? There's too many voters of cast votes on machines that jam or malfunction or suck the votes without a trace. As we look at Our election system. I think it's fair to say that there are many legitimate questions about its accuracy about its integrity, and they're not confined to the state of Ohio. Nobody got impeached for incitement to insurrection today. We've been talking about relief factor for some time. Some say there might be 100 million people struggling with some kind of pain, whether from exercise or just getting older..

Colombia's 'cocaine hippos' must be culled, scientists say -- but not everyone agrees

"Colombia's cocaine. Hippos must be stopped, Scientists warn. Not bad news for you, but it's bad news for the hippos. Please tell me about the cocaine Impose. I'm curious. I am now firmly entrenched in my decision to go with the bad news first, cause it's got cocaine hippos. Pablo Escobar's hippos are taking over the marshlands of Colombia. This so called cocaine hippos were illegally imported to the country by the notorious drug Lord. What the rapidly breeding beasts have now grown to become the largest invasive species on the planet. So here's what happened. I guess Pablo Took control, and I should know this because I did. I did a school report on him when I was in, like sixth grade, which was a crazy person to pick. But you know, even back then I was kind of a baller. So when Escobar was killed, authorities took control of his 7000 acre estate, including a personal zoo. And here's what happened. Four of the hippos escaped. With no real predators. There are anywhere between 80 to 100, descendants of the Escobar's former pets terrorizing the country's lakes and rivers. Scientists have projected the hippo population could surge to 1500 by 2024. Hippos posed a threat to the natural wildlife since their urine and feces are toxic, potentially sickening other species and even humans, So what they're probably gonna have to do is that I have to kill the hippos They don't really want to, but they don't really see any other option. It's pretty insane. I didn't even know at first you hear cocaine, hippos. You think maybe the hippos have that habits or there, there were being used to smuggle cocaine or something like that. Oh, my mind didn't go there, but you know what your that's not about Take No, but I think it's just more of an ode to their former owner. It's funny, though. How a lot of those drug lords and a lot of crazy guys and history loved having You know dangerous pets. Was kind of like their bugaboo. They just loved it. The big tiger's big casts all that stuff. I'm noticing that trend

What have we learned from the Pfizer vaccine rollout?

"So i know in that. Within the last few weeks and month there's been millions and millions of devices of coronavirus vaccines going into people's arms. All around the world and one of the front runners as we talked about in detail yesterday. Is the fires a shot. So when we've been looking at things in a clinical trial setting get an idea of safety and efficacy and all of those other scienc- words now that we've seen this thing rolling out in millions and millions of people globally. What extra detail do we now have about. Especially the sizes shot just to really tease that out. A little bit from what you said is the trials have been done on an average of maybe forty thousand people which means twenty thousand people get the vaccine twenty thousand people gates the placebo. All that tells you is does it work and is it safe. In twenty thousand people compared to placebo. So what happened. In in the phase three trials of pfizer moderna and astra is that they showed effectiveness to a varying extent and they showed that there were no serious side effects and therefore good to go to approve and release over. There are more daughter to balut tat. Which is what's happening here in australia. So that's to but rare side effects are only going to emerge after the trial just rare side effects but side effects where in the real world. You're not as selective as you are on the trial so a good example of that with pfizer. Thanks seniors the in their trial. They did not recruit people who had a history of nfl shock of severe. And what happens when it was released. One of the components almost certainly was causing antic shock and people who are susceptible and therefore. Now there'd be very careful about fis are and allergy and people with nf alexis. Let's assume for example that the norwegian norwegian cases of these frail terminally ill. Let's assume that that is linked to the vaccine. Oh vet still a question as we record this corona cast then what might happen as a result of that is even. If it's just precautionary you might say. Look people who are over. Eighty five frail and if you think that they might die in the next few months. Don't give them this vaccine just to be so you kind of refined the indications in other words the group of people for whom this gets the you get the vaccine and it's really only possible when you re rolling out to millions and millions of people and might be a one in a million side effect which is really really serious which you can't avoid by refining. Who gets it award in which case the vaccine might have to be ceased and move on to another vaccine and those are the things that you learn as you move on now. The good news as we said last week on krona cast. Was that when you look at. Israel still not being published but if you look at israel where they got really great electronic records that are integrated and they compare the people that they've immunized with the people yet to be immunized it looks as though there's reduced transmission which is really the the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for these vaccines. So you're in good things and you things that are maybe problems and It's unprecedented that within a year of this infection hitting we've not only develop vaccines and trialed them that they're now have been given to maybe twenty million people a lot of which has recorded in good electronic databases so that you can get onto this post marketing surveillance. I mean some drugs for example. Take years to find these side effects. And sometimes they're missed for years because doctors are really lousy at reporting side effects. And then you find the find the might this way. They're going to be find out much sooner more effectively and be able to find out whether it is coincidence or really attached to the vaccine

How Goalcast Creates Viral Videos With Salim Sader And Cyrus Gorjipour

"For. You guys started this business. Goal casts really really recently. And you've got an so good so fast that justin bieber's agent scooter braun braun. Lebron's the guy who's responsible for some of the most viral music videos in the world. He's the man who basically created justin bieber and he said these guys are some of the best and most masterful storyteller he's ever met. There's a funny story. There actually go ahead and scooter wants me to share this. But when we were filming his video for goal cast we were telling him no. Do this or say that story again or focus on this and at one point he just turned us. Zych like guys. Do you know. I make the most viral videos on the internet. And we're like. Yeah but you've never made a goal cast video. This is different and he just looked at us and he was really pissed. And he's like guys. I brought justin bieber look up videos like it has two billion views on youtube. Stand down and all that and then we just to our guns. were like. Listen if you wanna make a goal video we know what works with our audience. We know what works on facebook. Like you have to tell the story your way. And then what happened is that she then went along with it and video when we released it to him before we posted it. He called me up and he's like guys really. This is amazing. I've never tried to my own video. And i was crying watching video psych. Good thing you guys in listen to me and most people usually listen to me and you guys just stuck to your guns just reminded me of the amazing. That's really proud of you guys. How long ago did you start bowl. Cast for three years ago. Three years ago awesome and so three years. That's how you can get in three years. How many fans you have right now. More than thirty million across all social networks in three years three years. Yeah that's incredible. Please give them around of applause. Sa- break it down for us. And i want you to break it down for a step-by-step in a rap with a frenchaccent norm kid. What's going on what was going on in that rock. Thomas video works so well. How did that get eighty million views. I would start by saying that what we try to establish his four thinks it's credibility authenticity right sympathy and then relayed ability. I see you guys writing down some credibility that authenticity sympathy and reliability and ability. Yeah awesome rhyme. Oh yeah. I didn't even know so he can do it in a wrap. Your those things usually a lot of speakers. All storytellers usually focus on the credibility. Part if you notice and what we try to do is actually focus on the three others because people a lot of people already have the credibility part really down and one really good trick one. Good way to have all three at once is to be vulnerable so think about it. You know you have authenticity. if you're vulnerable. Authenticity is basically being yourself shawn stevenson. Just talked about that right like if you share. Something vulnerable yourself. You're instantly yourself right. Sympathy sympathy. Is people feeling what you're feeling right. People have to feel in your shoes and when you say something like as an example i went to talk to that girl and she broke my heart bright. If i share it with someone than instantly you feel those three things. And then you can relate also the third part relating. Is you going back to a story in your life that relates to what i just shared with you and that instantly makes us feel connected. And that's what we try to do with our videos. That's brilliantly said. Could you state those three things again for people who are taking no yes. Authenticity sympathy and reliability authenticity sympathy and relate ability. Could you go more into sympathy and reliability. Yeah sympathy and reliability to us. We try to do with both at the same time. Sympathy to us is a lot about the feeling. It's a lot about feeling the same emotion as a speaker or somebody in movies. They do that too right. You feeling the same emotion as a person going through it. If you notice alexei the rock thomas video. We do that in subtle ways as well. There's a part where his father screams at him. And then you see the kid starting to cry that is sympathy because when we show an image of a kid crying. You'd bloody feel you didn't need to have the same experience to feel that because we show an image of a kid crying you can feel it so related to the other side really ability. Is you thinking about a time which your own father. Maybe where you felt the same way. So that's how would differentiate it.

You're not gonna have an obedient life without first having an obedient thought. Life and i was a christian for many many many years and loved god and couldn't figure out why just kept having so many problems and i didn't understand the stuff about the mind just thought that i couldn't help what i thought. Why can't help what i think. And i didn't have any idea that i could cast down wrong thoughts or i could shut my mind against thoughts that i didn't have to receive everything that fell into my head and just take it as my own. Roll it over and over and over in my mind. I share that. My dad abused me. When i was young. And you know still after all these years sometimes just out of nowhere. I'll find myself thinking about some of the things he did to me. And you know the minute that. I become aware of what i'm thinking. I just say no. And i shut my mind to it. And don't let it in their. The enemy will sneak up on you and try to put stuff in your mind hoping that you'll take it as yours and if we think about the wrong thing that's going to affect our moods it's going to affect.

Philadelphia Eagles head coaching search tracker

"Cody. Thanks for coming back on. I in the enemy man. How are you. I'm doing great great to be with you. I'm excited to talk some football absolutely and let's jump right in to the eagles. Coaching search here. Because more names get added to this list everyday to say that the eagles have cast a wide net would be understating it a little bit. You tweeted out. And i think it was either yesterday or today but as a recording. This on the fourteenth is was on the thirteenth. You tweeted out a whole list of names. We've got carolina offensive coordinator. Joe brady tennis offensive coordinator arthur smith san francisco defensive coordinator robert soleil tampa bay defensive coordinator. Todd bowles new england linebackers coach. John mayo kansas city quarterbacks coach mike kafka philadelphia assistant head coach do staley oklahoma head coach lincoln riley ohio state head coach ryan day. Cincinnati head. Coach luke fickle and more are coming each and every day and i know among eagles fans. You know we see this as a pretty dysfunctional team right now. We see this as an organization. That doesn't seem to know exactly what they're doing and we're skeptical as to whether or not a a really high profile coach is going to want to come here given the list of names here. Where are you at on this eagles. Coaching search as there really are just getting started right. Now yeah and we saw it just kellen more added today and obviously you know they're going to continue to cast the net and i think just in general. I think there's a little merit to the idea that you know when you compare openings. The eagles aren't A bursting with attraction just because of the situation. I mean Doug peterson clearly. If the reports are to be believed is is kind of worn down from from this run with eagles. And but i honestly don't put too much stock into this idea that they're undesirable because at the end of the day there's thirty two jobs. There's thirty two head. Coaching jobs in the nfl. We see guys in view with with teams like the jets and the jaguars every coaching cycle. Yes they sometimes have high picks so they sometimes have a lot of cap space but at the end of the day. It's nfl fell head coaching job. You can't tell me you know if you're joe brady and you're getting interest from all these teams. I mean you're not going to just not going to turn down the opportunity and so And eventually some of the spots are gonna get filled For me i mean i. I start for the eagles with looking at the offensive side of the ball. I know that's it's a big talking point. Jeffrey lurie with with you know really any eagles fan. That's been under or watching. Jeffey larry hires run. The team I i think really it comes down to are you going for You're gonna have to sacrifice somewhere. Because with somebody like joe brady even kellen moore. You're really banking on them. Being kind of an offensive mastermind and up and coming mastermind as opposed to this Person who's been around the league for years and respected and you know doug peterson even though he didn't have head coaching experience. Jeffrey loria himself talked about that emotional intelligence he talked about. Doug peterson former quarterback. In this league he had time under andy reid and so i. I think it's just a matter of where are they gonna sacrifice. Because if they go with robert. Sal the forty niners you're sacrificing. You might bring in a nice offensive coordinator with them but he may leave here for another head coaching job. And so what do they want. We're gonna find out.

New book charts changing tactics of fossil fuel lobby

"2021 brings a new president and new priorities for climate change solutions. How quickly can the. Us pivot toward a cleaner. Climate policy penn state university professor. Michael mann's new book. The new climate war the fight to take back. Our planet has some ideas. Michael welcome back to climate cast. Thanks great to be with you. Give us a thumbnail sketch of your book. What's the message here. The message here is actually pretty simple. Look climate change. Denial is no longer tenable fossil fuel interests. Those who've done their bidding. Those forces of inaction the inactive. Est says i call them simply recognize that they can credibly claim that climate change isn't real that it isn't human caused in that it isn't doing real damage now and so they've turned to other tactics in an effort to delay that necessary transition away from fossil fuels Moving attention away from the need for systemic solutions for policies that incentivize renewable energy and put a price on carbon to individual lifestyle changes Another one is false. Solutions the idea that there are simple technological fixes that somehow don't necessitate us getting off of fossil fuels. Michael twenty twenty one brings a new president may be what i would call an opportunity point for climate solutions and making them a priority. What has president elect biden proposed that heads in the direction you want to see. The biden plan the plan that he has put forward. is a bold climate plan It includes massive investment government investment in renewable energy which is very important part of the solution. There is support for carbon pricing of putting a price on carbon polluters pay when they dumped carbon pollution into the atmosphere right. Now they don't have to pay for that so the biden administration is Emphasizing the importance of those actions They are also reengaging the global community Reasserting our support for international treaties like the paris treaty and in fact for going beyond the paris treaty. So we know the bottom line where the rubber meets. The road is the atmosphere and when we talk about these policy changes how quickly can policy changes start to have an impact on our atmosphere. Yeah you know. There's some good news there. The prevailing thinking a decade or so ago is that when we stop emitting carbon. The planet will still warm up for decades. There is a substantial revision now in understanding of the problem that we can stop emitting carbon in the atmosphere we will see the fruits of those efforts Pretty quickly and that's why it is important for us to act dramatically over the next ten years. What would you say to those who are apprehensive about climate solutions and the economy. And what will you be watching for the next four years. Yeah what i would say is that you know there's a fallacy that somehow we have to choose between the economy and the environment that's simply not true if we act on the climate crisis we will save literally trillions of dollars because extreme weather events are costing tens of billions of dollars every year here in the united states alone there were record number of them in two thousand twenty and so it's a win win we act on this problem now We can avert destroying this planet for future generations and we potentially have a healthier economy as a result of it. Michael man with penn state university. Thanks so much for sharing your perspective today Thank you very much. Paul was a pleasure talking with you.

Storytellers: Lorraine Hansberry

"Today's storyteller was a playwright and activist. Who stories centered. African american working class families despite tragically short career. She became the first black woman to have a play produced on broadway half a century later her work remains one of the most celebrated snapshots of black struggles and black joy. Here's the story of lorraine hands berry lorraine hands berry was born on may nineteenth nineteen thirty on the south side of chicago. Her father carl. Augustus was a prominent figure. Within the city's black community having founded one of the first african american banks growing up lorraine and her three older siblings played host to a number of famous people including langston hughes. Wabc boys duke ellington and olympic gold. Medalist jesse owens. Despite their middle class status and cultural connections the hands berries were still subject to chicago's deeply ingrained. Housing segregation agreements known as restrictive covenants were widespread throughout the city. White property owners could collectively agree not to sell to african americans. This practice created a ghetto known as the black belt which ran through the south side when lorraine was eight years old. Her father secretly bought a home. In one of the so-called restricted heads in nineteen thirty seven when the family moved in a white mob attacked a brick was thrown through the window narrowly missing lorraine the local homeowners association filed an injunction for the hands berries to vacate lorraine her siblings were chased spat and beaten during their walks to and from school the supreme court of illinois doubled down on the legality of the restrictive covenant. And the hands. Berries were forced out of their home eventually the. Us supreme court overruled this ruling on a technicality. Thirty blocks subsequently opened up to black families across the south side while this ruling and the hands fight did not outlaw restrictive covenants. It did signal. The beginning of the end for the practice lorraine attended. Chicago's englewood high school where she became interested in theatre. She initially attended the university of wisconsin. Where she cut her teeth with the communist party but left after two years in one thousand nine hundred fifty lorraine moved to new york to be a writer by nineteen fifty one lorraine had found a home in harlem and began socializing with many of the great thinkers who had once visited her family back in chicago. She started writing for paul robeson freedom a progressive newspaper at a protest against racial discrimination at new york university lorraine met robert number off a jewish writer. They married at her family home in chicago. In nineteen fifty three in nineteen. Six robert co wrote the hit song. Cindy oh cindy it's prophets allowed lorraine to stop working to focus on writing. She began developing a play that she initially called. The crystal stair langston hughes poem mother to son she would later changed the name to a raisin in the sun. This too was from a langston hughes poem called harlem. What happens to a dream deferred. Does it dry up like a raisin in the sun or faster like a sore and then run a raisin in the sun centers on a black working class family in chicago south side as they try to improve their financial situation. The patriarch of the family has died and a ten thousand dollar insurance payout is imminent they the money to buy a house in the cheaper all white neighborhood nearby to they use it to invest in a liquor store and education lorraine based many of the characters on the families who rented from her father and with whom she attended high school the cast safer one character was entirely black lorraine was in her twenties and the play itself dealt with racism life in chicago's black belt and the pain of assimilation into white culture topics that were considered risky for the predominantly white theater. Going crowd it took over a year to raise enough money to put the play up. When it debuted in nineteen fifty-nine a raisin in the sun was the first play written by a black woman to be produced on broadway and the first to be led by an african american director lorraine was twenty nine years old. The play was an almost instant. Hit the new york drama critics circle named it. The best play of the year just five months after its broadway debut arisen in the son of in london's west end in nineteen sixty one. A film starring much of the original cast was released and several of the actors received golden globe. Nominations perhaps the most important element of the play success was that entailing box stories. Lorraine also make theater accessible and previously unimaginable ways as the writer. James baldwin noted. I had never in my life seen so many black people in the theater and the reason was that never before in the entire history of the american theatre had so much of the truth of black people's lives and seen on the stage. Black people had ignored the theatre because the theatre had always ignored them lorraine would go on to finish in stage. Just one other. Play the sign in sidney bruce. Deans window about a jewish intellectual the play which explored themes of homosexuality and the bohemian lifestyle. Debuted to mixed reviews in nineteen sixty four. It ran for just over one hundred performances closing on january twelfth. Nineteen sixty five. That's same day. Lorraine hanbury died of pancreatic cancer. She was thirty four years old. After lorraine's death. Her ex husband robert had several of her plays produced posthumously to be young gifted and black became an autobiographical work. Drawing on lorraine's letters interviews and journal entries the title came from a nineteen sixty four speech of lorraine's when she spoke to the winners of a united negro fund writing competition. She said speech though. It be thrilling marvellous thing to be merely young and gifted in such times it is doubly so w dynamic to be young gifted and black

Why will most Australians get a less effective vaccine?

Why will most Australians get a less effective vaccine?

"Australia's on track to get access to or to approve two different coronavirus. Vaccines is one from fayza. Biontech and there's one from oxford strelka but the two vaccines are quite different defies. A shot has like ninety five percent efficacy based on the studies and the oxford. One has a lot less than that. But it looks like we're only gonna get enough of the fiso one to vaccinate maybe five million people it's going to be prioritized for the people who are most vulnerable kind of everyone else is gonna get the oxford one. So we've got simony questions from people and a lot of them. Cluster around the question of why most australians going to get a vaccine that looks a lot less impressive than what we know is possible when it comes to fighting corona virus country. I just wanted to chain. Just want to alter one thing that you say. Is that the head of the therapeutic goods administration before christmas indicated that in fact they were going to get data from johnson and johnson from their vaccine. So this is not one of the vaccines that the government's got an arrangement with but i think they've made a preliminary application and all the last forty eight hours. The ceo of johnson. Johnson has said that they're going to be releasing their phase three trial data in the very near future. Now this is an adenovirus vaccine which is one which called virus. If you'd like carries the corona virus spike into the cell. A bit like the astro vaccine and the chinese vaccines. But it's a one dose vaccine rather than a two doors vaccine so really interesting vaccine. It'll be really interesting to see what they come up with this. This the johnson and johnson one and we'll possibly be another option. The tj seemed to save before christmas that this was on the table for approval which is interesting even though we haven't got a business arrangement with them as far as we are led to believe. Okay so let's just recap on the data the pfizer the moderna and the astro vaccines all do the same thing. They take genetic messages into the cell and tell the cell to produce the spike protein which then goes off into the blood and the immune system responds and create an immune reaction which is then memorized for future infections the pfizer and moderna one dude by mini which package of genetic messaging and the astra. One does it with a chimpanzee virus. Adenoviruses takes into the cell and leaves the genetic message there behind to produce the spike protein. So they do the same thing but in different ways from the trials the phaser moderna vaccines have you around. About ninety five percent efficacy. Let me just explain. The word efficacy for a moment. Efficacy is a word used in trials clinical trials which shows the in the trial context in the circumstances of that trial where the included and excluded certain people and the duration of what they monitored. That's really what efficacy means. Within the context of trial they got ninety. Five percent efficacy at reducing disease. If you were infected there were not enough data from those two trials at least not yet to show whether the affected infection and transmission although with the astra trial they did actually have datta which did suggest that the astra vaccine prevents transmission. Which makes us pretty confident that the pfizer. We'll actually resist transmission tube but we have no data on that yet. So it's efficacy. It's not effectiveness in the real world so when you introduce a vaccine or a drug into the real world. The efficacy may change. It may go down. It may go up and that will be seen as we monitor it going through. Okay so what did the astro vaccine find it. Find that when you gave to standard dozes roundabout four weeks apart thereabouts. You got sixty two percent effectiveness at reducing disease all disease and much harder effectiveness reducing severe disease so all these vaccines seemed really good at preventing severe disease and death but the oxford overall sixty two percent effective. The seventy two percent comes from an average and really shouldn't be used because it's not relevant average because the smaller british trial made an error and gave a smaller dose to some people who raised under fifty five and then give a standard does later and what they got was ninety percent effectiveness in that small. Subgroup wasn't planned but they noticed there and when they put those two together. That's got seventy percents so it's not a fair comparison. Comparing standard does to standards to those standards especially younger people might be less likely to have severe disease anyway. Yes so that makes sense biologically because what's happening. Almost certainly with the astro vaccine is that the body is developing antibodies. Nobody absolutely proven. But it's actually ironically and sort of sadly developing antibodies to the chimpanzee admiral virus so the very virus that's like an uber bringing the genetic basis into the cell. The body's reacting to that so when you get the second does the second dose isn't working as well because the body's working against the actual vaccine vaccinated against the vaccine so that makes sense with the low dose because you haven't generated as many antibodies to the chimpanzee virus there for you get a really good prime with the first low does and then a good hit with a second does now there's indications that came out of the same is true of india and a sense from the ceo of astra that the results are better than you think. And the implication was that if you separate the two standard doses by three months you might get sent effectiveness now. We talked about it a little bit but that on yesterday's corona cast 'cause that's a long time between dozes and as we've seen just talking about the uk variant. We talked about the brazilian various african very very unfair to them by country. But that's the shorthand version of doing it. We're getting a quite quickly of new variants and three months between vaccines might be too long and that the virus changes between dozes and. That's the problem there.

"Walsh. Speaking of playing kyrie irving hasn't been playing. What's the latest in his situation. Shot at this point. It was out of his hands. Now it's out of the nets hands about one. He would play again because of that video that surfaced that the league's looking into that appeared to be his sister's birthday party both the data and his sister had birthdays last week That he was there without a mask. with more people allowed than the league allows in this cova time he's facing a possible quarantine from the league and so you could forget about him certainly being back this week next week may look unlikely based on that video. I haven't heard any pushback on the timing of that video meaning. It doesn't look like it's from last year the year before. And so if that's the case and that's what the league determines you know then kyrie irving is going to continue to be album more than that you know. I think he's got to make it clear the nets and be clear about his intentions about wanting to play about when that might be and and they've got to work. I think there's things for both the nets and carried to workout going forward excluding the time off for the maskless situation of the birthday party. What kind of contact has had with the front office or ownership or coaching staff of the brooklyn nets. My son says it's been fairly minimal. I i do think he's been in contact. But i don't j. know how extensive it's been you you saw last night at appeared during the game prior to the game he was on zoom For a political launching campaign in new york And so through this you know he's been certainly engaged elsewhere. The nets need to know. He's going to be engaged with them. I mean they is you know jay. They invested a lot in kyrie irving and kevin durant and that's supporting cast To try and put a team together they talk. What a championship. You saw kevin durant last night and and really almost single-handedly them over denver and durant his comeback. Think it's as great as anyone imagined. He could off of that achilles injury but the nets are built to do this with one player. They built the steam. The do with two great ones k. d. and kyrie irving think they've got to know that he's committed that he's still committed to that and i just think those conversations are going to have to take place once he's back or in a friend of mine that he wants to be back or or is able to be back in play based on what's going on with them.

What Is Populism?

"For years now. Populists have been popping up all over the globe from india and europe to the philippines in south america and of course into the united states politicians with populist leanings. And those who have gone full-fledged populist in their quest for power have been making a lot of noise and a good deal of trouble think marine le pen in france. Victor bon in hungary rodriguez do taste in the philippines. Former venezuelan president who chavez india's prime minister narendra modi end yes by many people's definition donald trump and the united states. But what is a populist. What is populism answering. That is notoriously difficult. A part of the difficulty arises from the fact that populists can come from all parts of the political spectrum. there are leftist populists around the world who combine various forms of socialism with their populist message. There are those on the right who push anti immigration and anti lgbtq plus platforms in their populism populism in general refers to a to ordinary people as a political ideology or approach it involves emphasizing. The wants needs voices and good qualities of the common people and it usually does so by contrasting this idea of the good common people with the bad elite working against them. Best case scenario a populist leader would be honestly looking at the issues that ordinary people face and helping create solutions for them bus making the will of the people law and that is what populist leaders tend to promise unfortunately what tends to happen and what political scientists have observed in the aforementioned places is these populist leaders bending the definitions of both the common people and the elite in order to gain power with an democratic system and then undermining the very fabric of that democracy in order to stay in power de emphasizing some of the crucial parts of the democratic process such as the articulation of varied interests and the thoughtful mediation of those interests it can be incredibly effective for the leader and incredibly damaging for the democracy that they're distorting and anyone who lives within that democracy who isn't in the group that the leader has defined as the common people so worst case scenario populism redefines the common people as a group with narrow interests and then insists only there will matters a we spoke with political scientists on a malla busa a professor at stanford university and the director of the school's global populisms project which published a white paper in march of twenty twenty called global populisms and their challenges addresses the threats of populism and identifies several possible solutions. According to the paper populism is growing across the globe because of the failure of major political parties to address the thorny issue that ordinary people face. today's world immigration economic inequality and globalism. Just to name a few. This gives populist leaders a sort of foot in the door to claim that not only. The elite members of those political parties are bad but that the whole system is bad. Populist leaders climb to prominence by dividing society splitting it into two not just separate but opposing factions the people and and the elite a university of georgia political scientist by of cast mood explained it this way in an article for vice quote. The key distinction between the people and the elite is not based on class. Our power but on morality is always the pure against the corrupt but again the people is often an exclusive group a to quote the stanford paper populists redefine the people often by excluding vulnerable ethnic or religious minorities immigrants and marginalized economic groups. The result is majority rule without minority rights. Once in power populist leaders attack not only the rights of individuals who don't fit into the defined majority but the very foundations on which the country lies that includes the paper's authors wrote quote the takeover and taming of courts and oversight institutions and new laws that limit the freedom of the media and civil society. We've seen this in the united states with trump calling the press the enemy of the people criticizing judges resisting congressional oversight claiming that elections are rigged flouting laws and claiming that a deep state of bureaucratic actors is out to get him to deny the will of the people he represents. It happens with other populist leaders all over the world schmila busa explained the mindset saying the position is the of the people. Why would you listen to them. The media is the swamp. Why would you listen to them. Everything is fake everything is suspect and no one is to be trusted except the populace end that populous remember does not include voices of the populations minorities or anyone who disagrees. With the labeled majority. Leader's malibu said this is not about making poor people wealthy. This is not about punishing me lead in redistributing wealth. There's almost nothing in the populist program that actually makes every day people's lives better populists don't do that. They simply don't. It's not the people who have suffered the most who support populist parties. It's really sort of the people who fear dropping further down inside of prestige and economic status. Populist leaders often don't spring from the working class roots of what's thought of as being the people though considered trump is a self professed billionaire real estate investor. Brazilian president shire dinar is a longtime congressman and military leader. Francis lapenne is the daughter of a career right wing politician. The philippines to therapy spent decades as mayor and lawyer and india's muddy came from humble beginnings. But he's been in politics more than forty years.

Your Friendly Black Sidekick

"Pay nba parker. I'm a producer here at the cut. But before this humble brag i was a film professor. And i obsessed about every minute beautiful and infuriating thing in film and television to be fair. I still do so. I was recently watching. The netflix. miniseries the queen's gambit because as a former chess club kid. I expected it to be my jam. So i was overjoyed and then befuddled to see the character. Joe lean the protagonists childhood. Bff from the orphanage and black girl. Savior extraordinaire whose entire purpose is to be labeled as difficult while sacrificing huge parts of herself so that the porcelain white girl can play chess and it felt all too familiar to me. It reminded me of this film. I loved as a kid called a little princess dealer. Decent thought i would die till i heard you talk about the magic. I grew up faithfully watching the one thousand nine hundred five version of a little princess by alphonso croissant about a rich orphaned white girl who ends up being a servant all girls school and spencer evenings in the attic with the orphan servant. A little black girl who shares in her daydreams in fantasies but unlike the queen's gambit for this cold where he comes from in a little princess both girls free themselves together and truly become princesses in lace and curls allow to grow up sisters. But still there is this disconnect. The black girls still feels like the friend on the sidelines. Even if she's spunky and nothing awful or bad happens to her. This was the case with a lot of the movies. I grew up on. They all had interruptions of the sweet black sidekick there was also lavender the best friend matilda. It's much better than being out there. And jesse in the babysitters club really an idea might be brilliant. And the most classic example for black kids of the ninety s was a grown man. Lavar burton as star trek. The next generation sweet brainy sidekick jordi la forge computer as we increased our power levels. Was there any counterreaction. Affirmative him but listen. I'm not here to complain. I'm just sort of navigating my way. Through this trope. It is not entirely a bad thing at all as a brainy spunky little black kid i loved these characters. I mean. I needed them. One of the first things. I noticed about the next generation is that they have shorty fords. I remember as a little girl. I had like a brown suede hip band. And i used to put it over my eyes. So i could be jordan forge. George soros outspoken introverted. He makes amazing friends. Went the android on this. And i was like. This guy is still gave the nerve babies though cool that is none other than the actress. Zelda harris. When she was ten years old she played one of these classic sidekick characters jesse the only black babysitter in the baby sitters club. I did not grow up reading the baby sitters club books. I read every single one of those books. Jesse was a dancer who always related to her kids. She learned sign language for one of the kids. She babysat and taught dance. Moves and the film adaptation of the baby sitters club was totally formative for me growing up. Zelda definitely plays the sidekick the supporting role to a host of white girls but she also stole scenes left and right dropping like flies. She kinda had to that was what she was given to work with. Not just in the sitters club but in every role she dishes for. I would be bassey token friend but not necessarily get to read for the lead over and over again. Zelda would hit this wall. She knew her potential by casting directors saw her as the bouncy token friend it starts to wear on you as a kid because you have the power nation. You're working in an industry that can make anything happen. You got competence muppets. Cgi and all this stuff going on who still getting very consistent. Message that you're here to support and so okay Yeah the cameras going to be. Set up right here. You're gonna stand on the side. I'm not sure if you're gonna be in this shot. Whoa having mechanic realization was intense. This realization was extra intense for zelda. Because she knew it didn't have to be this way. She started her acting career in the leading role. Her very first film was spike. Lee's crooked where she starred as troy maybe other people with mommy and scream and yell at you can't do. It wasn't all inclusive set with women and people of color where she had the starring role in black and brown film.

"Everyone's got to work on. This week's sports illustrated kenneth podcasts. Happy twenty twenty one. I i cast of the year. I'm joined by jamie real tennis chat because there are a real match it Jamie good morning happy new year. Good morning having here. I'm i'm good. It's it's strange to Wake up in the morning and actually have match results from flitting across your screen along with Your georgia election results were talking on wednesday morning and Already the women are at play dhabi. The men are qualifying in delray even Nevermind cobain just nice. Nice to have tennis back it It's been a while since we've Been in a position to actually talk about some tennis in not just guessing game about the calendar or try to Find other ways to to fill time. We wait for tennis. Return so good. Good sport back with us tom. I thought we would do a few things today. One of them is We talk with sam query. The other day The told us why he made his escape from russia. And that seems to have generated a fair amount of attention pro and con. Maybe we can talk about that and then we get a column of projecting twenty twenty one and someone suggested we actually instead of just answering. Why don't we provide some logic. And some reason talk through some of the choices we made in terms of prognosticating. Twenty twenty one so. I thought you and i would do that this morning. How does that sound sounds good. I will say the same query interview As you said. Got a lot quite a lot of responses. I think for awhile. We didn't hear anything from him at all. And of course the up investigation concluded and the suspended fine came down And so i think a lot of people were really interested to hear his side of the story. Though i think people are still very much divided on where they stand. Yeah exactly and I mean remember when this news first broke in october. This was a few days after the the twenty twenty french open The atp had a very strongly worded statement and there was even. I mean i had people that were deep inside these discussions inside tennessee. Look democrats may have played his last match. This is a serious breach. This could be you know a six month. Suspension even a one year suspension. Same query already mid thirties. This could have sealed his career and turned up. Not the case at all and This is a as you say he got suspended. Twenty thousand dollar fine which basically means he only needs to behave himself with respect to cove it if he gets in a dispute with a chair umpire. That doesn't count. This is only health and safety related So such this was a slap on the wrist. And i you know. I think this divide people and i am sam. A lot of credit for essentially saying look at the facts are really in dispute. It's just a question of interpretation and in. here's what i went through and put yourself in my shoes and if you disagree with me disagree and Some people took took great offense and still do about what he did other people sympathize but he basically said you know. Here's the story. It's not really not much in dispute. Factually you know. In a lot of these cases you would necessarily extend this platform to To an athlete without trying to find some balance from the other side. But i think it's not really a question of facts being disputes. Just a question of application of law and how severely you want to sanction him Sam laid out what happened and sort of gave us a tiktok and essentially said here. The facts now go ahead and judge me armed with all the facts and as as you say jamie. Some people still take Offense to this his leaving country going to another country breaching protocol You know a lot of people look at you. Run the risk and You knew what you were signing up for. And i think other saw as as you alluded to who's in a fairly You know fairly desperate situation in a in a foreign country with kobe tests and not a lot of clarity. In terms of how the next few weeks would shake out with a seventeen month old until and you know candidly. I tend to land there as well. Not not an ideal set of circumstances and you wish there had been another option a little more communication in there. But i don't think you can really fault someone for being in russia not getting a straight answer having kovachev having the possibility of being separated from your wife and seven month old and basically saying. I'm gonna do this safely as i can. But i i gotta get the hell outta here. Consequences be damned so I don't know if there were other things that struck you reading his piece but I have a hard time. Dredging up a whole lot of outrage. Honestly

"Today. I'm joined by fanling. Wong director of cell line development and protein sciences and zane starkey wolf director of corporate development from wishy biologics. I'm excited to be speaking with both of you. Today about crisper cast nine technology and its possibilities in the discovery and development biopharmaceuticals. We will also conduct a deep dive on its potential impact on bioprocessing and bio manufacturing. Welcome fanling and zane to the podcast. Zinke randy glad to be here. Thank you brandy before we get too far and because of our audience is quite diverse with regards to their experiences in life sciences. Fenland could you please provide some background on. Crisper cast nine as molecular biology. Gene editing tool. Yeah sure so christmas. Nineteen action system is actually adapted from a natural procure arctic defense mechanism to bacteria to simplify. What could spec assistant can do is took leave the face she and i was. It has been incorporated into the bacteria routine on so that to keep the fate from reproducing. Crisper is actually akron stands for clusters servers regularly interspace. Shot had a dramatic repeats and kissed by the most well well-researched variant of the class outcasts nucleus. Which has been used within the gene editing function. So i think the research community have actually adapted this mechanism to revolutionize how we perform the genetic modifications Not only in pro arctic. But or so. You can arctic sales since the system was first published and zane i know from our previous conversations that you were saying that crisper casts has an intriguing origin. Would you be able to elaborate. Yes interesting research can be found on crisper that dates back to the late. Eighty s Other work has been conducted throughout the first decade of the two thousand however it wasn't until two thousand twelve that two pivotal research papers were published in the journal. Science one by jennifer down nov uc berkeley and manual shopping chair of the university of vienna and then another pianist by doctors cross unanimous and sickness at vilnius university. All demonstrating the use of bacterial. Crisper cast nine as simple programmable. Gene editing jewel. But i know that the story doesn't stop there does it no. It certainly does not in less than a year in two thousand thirteen. The labs of dr fung jong and will chong of the burden student. Mit dr george. Church's lab at harvard reported success in adapting. Crisper cast nine for genome editing in your area cells and both mouse and human cells. And i know that we could really spend an entire podcast. Just on the history of crisper so i wanted to stay focused on the technology here. There's been a lot of excitement since discovery about this molecular biology tool. Can you explain why. Sure the remarkable functionality of this tool is that it allows scientists to target specific locations within the genetic code of an organism to cut out or replace a segment of dna due to the high specificity and exactness of utility. The applications have far reaching potential. And it has already become a much to walks game changer. In many fields of life science because it enables efficient cost effective and precision gene. Editing that has a wide utility for development of biological therapeutics including so and gene therapy disease modeling diagnostics agriculture industrial biology and more. And this has me thinking just about alternatives to crisper casts altogether Are there other ways to edit genomes. And if so what makes a crisper cast so much better. Great question brandy many of the other gene editing systems utilize today such as zinc finger. Nicholas's talons the use of mega nick. Liaises or other by all vectors like a. Iv compared with christopher cast nine are in the end very complex and time intensive often requiring many more steps and thus are more costly as well also and this may be greatest benefit. Is that crisper chess. Nine as a low off target affects profile which again makes it an ideal gene. Editing tool justify along with that. I've read many Recent advances using crisper technologies. Could you elaborate a little bit on those. The advances are extensive and continuous. We speak one example includes crisper a crisper i which are techniques to up and down regulate gene expression using dead cast nine dead cast nine removed the nucleus capability of cast nine but still allows for the targeted binding to a double stranded. Dna sequence of interest using the highway. Specific guide are a that is one of the cornerstones of crisper genome editing. I'd like to add that another application. It's a using crisper for hamas directed repel or so called a the are so this technique in simple terms can repel a double stranded. Dna break which is very important for genus ability. But what does the crisper made. Sdr can do is that. It cannot only to repel a break. But or so crew. Eight the break and then replace it with a small mutation or as elijah sequences so this techniques have actually substantially opened ability or researchers to make gino added more quickly and more efficiently

You had heard the country album going to the show or you didn't know it was going to be like a country bands show that night I I'm not sure what the Have how the? Stage was set but I know that I got that album sometime in May six probably heard it. Yeah I think for us.

It gets in jobs bank of america n._a. Member f._d._i._c. carbon offsets one. Oh one i'm n._p._r. Chief meteorologist paul hutton her her. This is climate cats. They're called carbon offsets and you can buy them to offset your greenhouse gas emissions. But how do they work work. And how do you know they're really offsetting. Your carbon. Emissions megi lund is a manager for greenie certification programs at the center for resource solutions nations megi. Thanks for talking today. Thanks all carbon offsets. One o-on what are they yes so a carbon offset is really just just a tradable purchaseable greenhouse gas emissions reduction so as a consumer you can go out and buy a carbon offset and negate or diminish your own carbon footprint so an easy example is let's say i drive cross country from san francisco to new york. If i calculate late the greenhouse gas emissions from that trip i can go out and buy a corresponding number of offsets and zero out the emissions from that trip. Let's take can airline flight for example. What would a typical offset for an airline flight across the u._s._a. Cost me i'd say five to seven dollars depending on who you're buying from but if you wanna buy offset that has some attached co benefits which is other kinds of environmental or social benefits associated with the carbon offset except project. That's gonna cost you a little bit more so let's say i i'm taking my flight right and i feel a little guilty about my greenhouse. Gas contribution uses for that flight. I buy i buy my offset. What would be a specific example of a kind of offset project that money would go towards so a carbon offset projects could look like a situation where normally forest would-be cut down but because of the investment into this carbon offset project they avoid the deforestation in which case the trees remain standing in carbon dioxide is absorbed for years into the future one of the core. The principles of carbon offsetting is that without the revenue from the carbon offset or the carbon credit. The emissions reduction would have never happened so your investment as a consumer into that carbon offset is what is driving the emissions reduction to happen in the first place. How is that verified. How do i know or the buyer no that that offset is working. You know the carbon offset market could potentially be a wild west if there wasn't some oversight of the the projects themselves to make sure that the emissions reductions are quantified in a consistent and credible way so as a consumer when you're going out to buy these offsets. It's really important to make sure that the project the offset is from has been certified at the project level because that certification body is the one that's going boots on the ground to the project to make sure that emissions actually are being reduced and they're the ones coming out with different processes methodologies breath at all ogies to quantify emissions reductions big picture. How effective are these offsets. Is there a more direct way to reduce greenhouse gas emissions rather than offset them after they're already in the atmosphere you know the the logic in the industry is generally reduce what you can offset what you can't can't so carbon offsets are just one tool in a really big toolbox of activities consumers can engage in to <hes> reduce their carbon footprint so one is purchasing carbon offsets but another is just reducing your own emissions by installing energy efficient technologies or buying renewable energy or doing a whole host of other things so what offsetting isn't is a permit to pollute maggie lund green e certification programs at the center for resource solutions. Thanks for your perspective on climate casts today paul. That's climate cast. I'm n._p._r. Chief meteorologist all <music>.

Jeffrey drives back casting director with mccorkell casting in New York. How are you it's great to have you here today like I said in the introduction I have so many things I wanNA talk about. In fact I was at an EPA on Friday and I made a list of all of the subjects that I want to cover in our podcasts because I had a lot a lot of teaching gigs and a lot of questions have come through so I thought you know what I'm just. GonNa take some of these questions and some of these ideas and kind of throw them against the proverbial podcast wall and we're going to see what sticks so. Thank you for joining us today. This is that moment in the episode where I want to say. Thank you so much for joining casting actors cast if you're new to casting actors CASS welcome welcome. I'm so glad that you're here. here. Hopefully you found a cool place to kind of hang out and join many many other actors at this point. I've been told that we're up to thirteen thousand downloads off casting actors cast and I couldn't be more thrilled and I also want to let you know that if you like and subscribed to the youtube version of casting actress cast. I would be really grateful. That would be a great thing for me to know that you're out there also watching as well as listening to the podcast of casting. acting actors cast also casting actors cast dot com. That's all one word casting actress GAZ DOT COM. You're going to find on that website all kinds of information There's information about classes that I'm teaching. There's information about all kinds of freebies and I know I've been mentioning this every podcast now for the past fifteen or twenty podcasts odd guests but if you do go to that section of the website called jump into the talent pool get it. It's my little attempt at trying to be a little humorous. I you know I don't know maybe you're raising your eyebrows right about now. Yeah well in any case if you go to jump into the talent pool fill out that form by the way that's just information that I keep. I don't do anything with it. It's just a way of me kind of finding out a little more about you. Maybe you have a question. That's a great place to ask a question and I'll cover it on a future podcast but if you do that and submit that form then up will come access to way free yes. I did say free one hundred page page free book and it's called conversation pieces out of the studio the voice over workshop for professional actors. It's a book that I put together about five or six years years ago on doing voice over work which is something I did early on in my career and had quite a bit of success with it and so I decided to put a book because I've been teaching a lot of classes in voice over work things like that so I thought this would be great to have kind of a book and now I'm just giving it away because it's been successful in several colleges and universities training programs and now it's absolutely free downloadable P._D._F. Exactly as you would buy at Amazon Dot Com for example so please check that out. It's yours absolutely only free on the website a little long winded here but on the website there are some freebies that correspond to some of the episodes so I invite you to kind of go back. Check out some of those earlier episodes. There's one on <hes> actors wardrobe for example and you literally get a handout breaking down items that you might want to consider for the wardrobe that kind of thing so it was very practical also. I'm doing my very best to kind of do some extra episodes here so that when I go the away I'm going to be traveling out of the country when I do go away. Though I WANNA stay still maintain getting these podcasts out to you but there may be A._M. I go back and do and repeat some of the earlier podcasts. I don't know what the best choices so. If you want to let me know what you would like to hear about maybe there's a podcast Ask that you liked it. Maybe not a lot of people tuned in on because it was like early on in the beginnings of this so any of those things are up for fair game but anyway that's my long winded announcement mid about going to the website casting actress cast and thank you so much for joining me so now let's talk about. I'm looking at my notes over here because I- i- scribbled without a whole bunch of notes about items that I really wanted to do entire podcasts and then I thought you know what rather than kind of drawing out this information. Let's kind of make it really concise and go through some of these things based on a few of the classes that I had this week one of them is I was a judge of the National Monologue Slam taking place. the New York City. That was great fun. A large turnout of actors showed up did monologues. I did a little bit of a workshop and it was really really fun. Those those questions that I got a few of those questions that I got. There helped me to kind of want to shape decide a few things. I want to talk about today in addition to that. I you did a study class at actors connection in New York and that's a wonderful organization where actors go and they work with casting acting directors and agents and managers and it's a really it's a really cool place to work and I had a really good time on Saturday night working with those folks at actors connection action and this is also what prompted me to think and talk about a few of the things that I'd like to talk about today. The first thing I want to talk to you about are not only this not only applies to monologues but I think it really also applies in large part to scene work to auditions to working with the scene partner. If that's what you're doing but as an actor sometimes you forget some of those basic tools. That can be really really helpful to you especially if you're searching for a way to kind of get into the character you know what I'm talking about. Sometimes you just don't know so. I don't really know what my approach approach should be for this particular character well. I what I have done is put into what I call. The five ps you know. I love acronyms and I love vegetables so the FIS peas okay bad joke anyway. The five P's literally are a way of breaking down. Certain elements elements of the character that you're working on again whether it be in an audition in a scene in a classroom situation and so these five PS. He's are just really. I think really great simple little tools that you can use in order to kind of peel away some of the Mush rush and get to the essence or the core of where you want to be with this character that you're working on so. I think this'll become very clear as I lay it. Ouchi number one pitch. It's really interesting to me that oftentimes in our nervous excitement we lose sight of the fact that altering your pitch pitch can really signal a change of direction a change of attitude a change of emotional connections so for example I'm talking to you at this level but when I changed my voice and talk at this level I'm changing and making a gear change. I'm making a gear change from I'm one thought to another sometimes. I'm changing my pitch and I'm lowering my voice. As low as I can get now. That's again causing using some kind of emotional shift what I call gear changes and a pitch gearchange can be really really useful so maybe you want to explore where can altering the pitch of my voice. Make a difference in getting my point across in either analog or seen etc so changing the pitch can be a really great tool something that you you might WanNa think about the second P pace now faces one of those notes that almost all actors get at one time or another in their career. I know I got many many of them myself and now I find myself giving pace notes a lot. I think the manifestation of nervousness is different in every body differently. early but what I really think happens. Many to many of us is that we don't have any kind of a gauge because we're smart and our brains are firing. All kinds of neurons and things are going on that. We're not really aware of how fast we are speaking from time to time again. I think that's partly due to nerves but I also think it's partly due to just US trying to have a more direct connection with our brains so we go very very quickly because our brains are fast asked so the pace note is something that I think can really be helpful as well in terms of making gearchange. I'm talking at this rate probably ably because like I always say I've. I love coffee and I'm never giving up coffee and today I've had a lot of coffee and what might be. a useful for me to think about is not just slowing down because I hate that note right directors use that note all the time so why would you just slow down a little bit and when you get to this point. It's like that's not helpful that doesn't that doesn't work. You have to help me understand where I am at and where I need to be and the thing that I think is very useful is to reflect on who you're talking to in a scene or even in a monologue. It's just you talking talking but who is it that you're talking to and so you can literally adjust the pace by making sure you are emphasizing using a point see what they just did. Their see just adjusted the pace to make a point see what I'm doing so simply by slowing down but making a an emotional point out of it. I think really is very very helpful especially if you're stuck if you're especially like you're you're in a scene where you're supposed. be really really angry for example well just by slowing tone and really making your point See what I did there. Yeah Okay now you get it so pitch is the first one pace is the second one the third one is a really great tool for gear changing. Now you know what you're changing is and I call it. The pause actors talent many many times don't know the use of the pause is it's very very powerful and can really make a dramatic statement about where you are mostly as the character in any given scene so you're talking like this yes and suddenly you're.

"cast" Discussed on Casting Actors Cast

"Casting actress cast. I'm Jeffrey Dries back and this is part. Two of our show called synchronicity. The point of view you from a casting director is really valuable for an actor to have I think because you'll see that the process is not dissimilar from what an actor has to go through in order to prepare for and to get hired for for an acting job so we're going to pick that up right where we left off from our last episode and as I mentioned please go on back and listen to episode before this one just so that you can play catchup if you haven't had a chance to do so that's awesome now. This is that moment of the podcast podcast where I want to just say thank you so very very much for listening. I am so thrilled and delighted that we are simulcasting now for Youtube. So if you're listening to the podcast please I would love it. If you could go to Youtube Dua a thumbs up do a like subscribe all of those things that you can do on Youtube. I really would love to have that feedback because as I mentioned in previous Youtube podcast these are kind of challenging to put together and got some new equipment and I'm really really trying to professionalize as much as I can getting this information to you as quickly and as efficiently as possible so it would mean a lot to me to know that you're getting some value out of these by going to youtube just just type in <hes> when you go to youtube just go to casting actors cast channel and it'll take you to all of the downloadable and or viewable podcasts that we've been starting up with casting actors cast finally finally if you go to the website casting actress cast dot com. You're gonNA find some freebies. You'RE GONNA find an article about branding. If you fill out the form called dive into the talent pool. It's going to take you to a free book called Conversation Pieces Out of the studio the voice over workshop for professional actors and it's a really it's one hundred page book that I wrote because when I was acting I did quite a bit of voice over work and I was able to incorporate that with my experiences a casting director too. I think provide something that you're gonNA find really useful invaluable if there's an interest on your part to do some voice acting work some a d._R.. So by all means check that out as well. Thank you very much so now let's just pick up where we left off. We talked about an he ended up talking about the call backs and what happens in the callback is that the director producer artistic director will s- put those pictures and resumes down on the floor literally and this is when we also show reels if the actor actor has done some video submissions for the particular role than we're GonNa do that will take a look at that in other words we try this convergence. We're good word convergence. We try. We put all of these things together. It converges into one moment where as a creative person the producer director the casting director all of the players that are involved in the casting of the production will put in their opinions and it can be very very challenging lodging sometimes sometimes it's not the most congenial atmosphere only because there's a very specific vision perhaps that one of the one of the creative types is seeking out this is particularly notable when casting a musical musical because you might have a really great singer and an okay dancer and not so okay actor the choreographer might not be as excited but the music director is thrilled but at the director's going you know that's going to be a little more work than I than that. It's going to just take time away from other elements of the production so you can see how those discussions can go and it's incumbent upon the casting director to make suggestions. Nations to have an understanding of the actors work so that we can talk about you in a way that's going to reinforce some of the choices that are being sought. I hope that that makes sense. That's called decision time and once that decision time happens we get the final list and backups. That's an important note backups because not every actor who's given the offered the job just jumps in says says yes to the job. There are other mitigating circumstances right. We'll talk about those in just a second so we'll usually have our first choice our second choice and sometimes our third choice just in case something happens with the first choice we'll go to the second can choice Saban. Something happens to the second choice. We'll go to the third choice and if there's no if the director doesn't feel like there's a really great third choice we might need to go ahead and do some Moore auditioning so it's at that time that that might open up more opportunities for actors because now because the director has given us some feedback and is actually seen what we have put together for them. There's a way that sometimes they those those decisions get fine tuned. They get sort of manipulated violated so that we can be very very specific about the next group of actors were bringing in so it's very much a collaboration in real time it sort of happens and yet we have to be very diligent diligent about being sensitive to the directors needs so that when the right person comes in the synchronicity there it is happens so the right time the right place the right energy though the right sensibility that you have as an actor that you brought to that audition that you recreated in a callback that fulfilled the vision of what the director or the producer is looking for that that we have a good feeling about because we talk well about you. All of those things can come together in that moment and that creates a job opportunity. That's why we then make the offer we call up the agent we call up the manager. We'll call up the actor directly if they have no representation and we say congratulations we would like to make an offer and we would like to let you know that the the general manager or the if if it's a theater job the general manager or the producer is going to call you with the official offer but we just wanted to let give you a heads up and let you know that you've been hired for the project that we thrilled that you did such a nice job and and the official offer will come in in a day or so that of course depends on the schedule etc so now it's at that moment that it's out of the casting directors hands right we kind of pass the torch we hand off our work to the general manager of the theater or the producer or the directing producer or the executive producer who then goes ahead and makes the official offer to those agents and sometimes those those agents call us back and say I haven't heard from the producer yet and that was only an again what we have to do is just say well. There's been a delay there travelling out on the west coast. They're looking for for location shooting issues and and you know there's all kinds of circumstances that can take place but that often will get a call from those those managers of those producers and we just do are very very best to provide the information as much as possible now. It's at this moment where a lot of circumstantial things can happen a between the time the actor audition and received the offer the official offer that actor might have gotten another job be between the time where we offer or between the final call back and the actor getting the job offer officially. The actor may change their mind. They may say things like I just decided that I am sorry about that but I just need to be with my family or there's been a family emergency or there has been something extenuating any waiting circumstance that has prevented me from being able to take this job and of course that's an unhappy situation for everybody for us. It's an unhappy situation because now we have to go back to the drawing board or we we go to the second choice and that's what we'll do will do. The same procedure will call the agent and say we'd like to offer it to this actor number two and you'll be getting a cough from the director of the producer. And that's when the negotiations begin also with that actor that I actor that first choice maybe the actor doesn't like the money that's involved. Maybe it's not enough money for the work. Maybe the actors is seeking better accommodations. Maybe the actor actor is asking for things that are just not that realistic giving given the parameters of that particular shoot or that particular play. We try to be as accommodating as possible because we want the actor to do the role but but not every actor gets everything that they're asking for and that's the negotiating process and that's what's leads us to the second actor same thing happens. We'll make it off to the second actor. There may be some negotiations about the money. There may be some circumstantial things that either work or don't work. Let's just say for the sake of this discussion that that second actor says you know what I'm going to have to pass on this only because unless I can get X. Y.. Z.. It's is just not worth my time. That's a very frustrating thing. I'm sometimes the gassing directors like well. Why did you come in? If you didn't at least understand the parameters you knew the dates your new the money you new the situation. Why are you making this difficult? Sometimes it's the agent who wants to hold out thinking if they hold out for more and more money or they hold out for more perks that it'll they'll come their way and that might happen <hes> but that's kind of a gamble in the crap shoot and therefore we go to actor number three same thing happens. We'll make the offer the producer her. We'll call make the offer. We really liked this actors work. There were very strong choice. They think we think that they would do an excellent job so <hes> we would like to make this offer and that either happens or doesn't happen so at that moment we have to either celebrate that one of those three actors for second or third choice actors are accepting the job or we have to go back to the drawing board you see we are under an obligation allegation to make sure that the role gets cast we get paid when the role gets cast so we have to go back to the drawing board we do all are due diligence agents to do another search. Send out another breakdown find out because we're now have a little more information about what's being sought after also sometimes we'll do another breakdown because actress who weren't available three weeks ago might now be available available..

And you know, what I just want to kind of share a question that I have the today's episode called question everything, and I've been toying with the idea of taking these podcasts and actually streaming them or me doing the podcast and putting it on YouTube. There's kind of a lot involved in I'm excited because I love the idea of that.

Would it be helpful to you? If there were a podcast channel of you know, me talking about the very same subjects we've been talking about. I'm happy to do it. I just wondered if there's an outreach or there's an an idea that would be better served by doing it on video rather than just me talking behind the microphone or. The other thing I do is. I'm thinking that maybe I could just shoot a video of me doing the podcast. Does that have any value? Would you please let me know by either sending me an Email casting actress cast gmaiLcom or casting actress cast dot com and fill out a comment for him. I would love to hear that. And as I grow, and certainly the audience has been growing, and I'm thrilled to have over ten thousand listeners now, and I think that that's more than exciting. But I'm just kind of wanted to continue to evolve and help as many people as I can. And if that would be of any help to you or to maybe some of your friends. Thank you, today's podcast is question, everything, you know. I love the acronym of fear F E A R. The acronym really is false evidence. Appearing real. And I think that that's a really great statement for today's podcast 'cause we question everything. Sometimes we question everything. And when we hear the answer, we're not satisfied, which only prompts us to ask another question, and I know actors are doing this all the time and based on the past couple of weeks that I've had with not only classes, but with actors in an audition, I did a day and a half of EPA's this week equity principle additions this week where I saw many of the same actors that I've seen many many times over because in our office and mccorkell casting everyone contributes to all the projects usually and the EP as our sort of my jurisdiction. So I'm kind of the gatekeeper, and I love doing the EP as as I've said many podcasts before, but that's prompted a lot of questions both from me. But also from the actors that I've been seeing not only at the as like I said, but also in some of the classes, and I thought I would use this particular podcast today to talk. About some of those questions, but keep in mind, the acronym. Fear false evidence appearing real. So here's the first question for the podcast is one that I actually asked just a few moments ago about whether I should turn this podcast into a YouTube video the reason I'm asking that question is not because I'm fearful, although I guess I have a little bit of fear of failure. I'm wondering if I do a YouTube video am I just setting myself up for kind of the scrutiny that I'm not interested in hearing. 'cause you know, we're all sensitive, folks. And I only want to get this message out. I don't have sponsors. I'm not actively seeking sponsors. But eventually if this grows it would be really great to see how it involves. But that's a question that I would love to have some answers to and I guess there is a little bit of fear in that. But here are a couple of questions that I've gotten this week. And I really wanna be Frank with you in terms of the answers and one question that I've gotten what do we meaning to us casting directors really say when you leave the room? So

I've been taking an inventory of the colleges and universities that I have been going to both solo and many times I go with Pat the list is just kind of incredible. And a big shout out to our friends at Penn State university. Thank you so much for hosting us. We had a really wonderful time. The work is really great. The BFA training program is quite exceptional and subunits campus. And a really significant imprint is being made by this fantastic BFA training program at Penn State university. So I couldn't be more thrilled to have been invited and patent. I really enjoyed ourselves. So thank you, very very much. Depend state university. Sorry about that little background. If you heard it. Meyer conditioning, just kind of popped on without me. Remembering to turn it off in it. Kind of sounds like a fifty seven Chevy. It's kind of crazy. But anyway, so a significant list of places that I have been this season in the new year northern Illinois university Rutgers University southern Methodist university, Washington state university, Indiana, U Penn State university row in college is coming up university of Connecticut, I'm finishing up a workshop there next week. And then of course, there are lot of university showcases coming to New York of most recently I've worked with the northern Virginia state university and Montclair state university students, they're doing really awesome work as well. I thought it would be a great moment for us to answer some of those questions that actually these students have been asking me and Pat over the times that we've been visiting these places they come up with similar questions. And I thought well, you know, what lot of people are having the same question. So let's reiterate some of these answers. And let's go ahead and. Look at some of the questions that I've been getting on the the website again, if you go to casting actress cast dot com, you'll see that there's a place where you can leave a comment. I encourage you, please. If there's any question about the business whatsoever that I can be any help to you. I would love to be able to answer. And that way, you your question can be helpful to the rest of the community of actors that's out there. And it's really true. No two programs are like in no two programs have the exact same kind of training. They all have a kind of a different philosophy. I think that that's really interesting. I think that that's really exciting because I don't think there's any one answer. And that leads me to my point. There's really no one answer to all of these questions that we're going to be dealing with today. And I want you to keep that in mind, these are just based on my own personal experience, and you might have some other ideas, and I'd love to share those ideas. So please let me know if I missing the boat on any of these questions have you had some. Experiences that you might wanna share just in terms of you know, helping out your fellow actors with some of the questions that I'm about to discuss with you today. Please truth is like a community. Let's help each other. And that way, we can not only answer questions, but we can feel more confident about our work. And to me that you know, the best thing ever, it's just to kind of do the kun-bae thing a little bit and reassure each other. Because I continue to believe that this is an excellent time to be an actor. And this is an excellent time for you to consider jumping in and participating. So that's the way I feel about it. We've got a lot of of really fantastic shows coming up that were casting first of all we just met with a producer and unafraid. I can't really talk about the three films that they're asking us about and we're excited because that means that we'll have a summer of doing some fee. Film work. So that will be a lot of fun. We've wrapped up Barrington stage, which is a monumental task summer theater that one all kinds of wards and doing really excellent work. So we're really happy that that seems to wrap up have wrapped up really well also contemporary American theater festival. C T F. They do such original and creative. Interesting work. Ed, Harris green is the heading up that program and has for many years, and we've been casting him for many years, and it looks like we've got a really exceptional cast. They do affor- productions sometimes they'll rotate it's like a rotating repertory situation. So you might be playing the lead one night. And then the next night, you might be playing a supporting character. But it's just amazing because these are new plays and new playwrights. I'm C ATF actually commissioned Michael Weller to write a piece and they're so they'll be a new Michael Weller play. That's being seen at sea. ATF? You have a chance to get down. Down there that would probably be great. Plus, you know, Barrington stage in pittsfield, Massachusetts. So if you're in the northeast put it on your summer to do list will you because if you're traveling kinda wanna see some theater, no better place in Barrington stage company. There's a lot of really nice theaters up in that area. But Barrington is something we've been working on and Pat has been casting for over twenty years, and that seems to be really kind of a cool thing to do. So let's jump into some of these questions. The first question that I received that I really wanted to take a minute to answer is Indiana University where a student said I've applied and been accepted to some grad schools in. I don't know if I should go or not or whether or not armed with my BFA degree. Should I go right to one of the major cities where there's stuff going on? For example, this actor was considering New York Atlanta, Chicago, Los Angeles, they were even thinking. About Minneapolis Minnesota because of the work being done at the Guthrie. And so the actor was really in the quandary like, you know, I've been accepted to a grad school. Should I take that time and it happened to be a three year program? And the good news was is that it would be paid for by the university because you'll be teaching some undergraduate classes in theater and acting. Whether or not that three year period of time would make it more difficult or challenging for you to come to some of those major markets after you're done with your masters degree, and would that hinder or help you in an actual acting career? That's a great question. And you can see why there's so many variables to the answer. Only. Because if you are for example, if you are somebody who is perceived or looks quite young maybe younger than your own age. Maybe going right into the profession would be a really great thing for you to do a Mony because if you spending three more years at three more years out of the profession only because you're sort of back into a pervert Buell bubble when

"Nine thirty AM appointment, conversely, if you're too tired at three or four o'clock in the afternoon because of whatever your life, then you may wanna make a notation of that that your motion contribution to what your work is about might be time sensitive so be cognizant. Ooh, good word. Gosh. I didn't think I would have went to keep yourself cognizant of where you are an emotional track. During. The course of your day, and that might help shape and define the kinds of addition times that are going to be best for you. Now, who did you meet in the room? The director's name who was the casting director actors are and forgive me for saying this, but many times I find actors very self absorbed. And this isn't a criticism. This is just kind of my reality. Because I was there so absorbed in wanting to do a good job and sell absorbed into being in the room. And being as focuses I could be that. I oftentimes never even bothered to find out who was in the room. I learned my lesson big time many times over so what was the name of the project. Give me the name of the character that you're playing and some notes on the character. What did you find? If you had the chance to read the whole script. Then by all means. You wanna jot down some character things that might be helpful sort of jogging your memory, and this would take place before or after the actual addition. And then notes on the dishes itself, what took place in the room. Where were you? What things did you think worked really, really? Well, what things didn't work really, really? Well. So those can all be factors that you put on your spreadsheet or your diary or your calendar or your three by five card. But by all means really think about how you're keeping accurate records of your work. Again, I want to repeat that I know. That's Macy's tedious. This may seem boring. This may seem like a waste of time. But I can share with you based on the calendars and in the books that I did over those fifteen years of work in New York. It was absolutely awesome to be able to have those kinds of notations to reflect back on who. I was. And how I grew as an actor. Now the bottom line for me, I decided while cleaning out the storage room to throw those calendars away. I threw hollow those books away. I decided that I didn't wanna live in the past. And it really didn't, sir. Irv me with who. I was now. But that was still really hard decision to throw those away. I had some vision of me being very very famous one day, and that this would go into the Jeffrey dries Bach archives somewhere at the Smithsonian. Yeah. Maybe my ego is just a little too big there. But anyway, I did throw those away in order to look ahead not back, and I would like to encourage you to keep those kind of accurate records to keep looking at ways in which you can put a structure in your creative life. So that it'll free up your creativity. I believe that. That's absolutely what happens if you do that. So I hope you had a good time today look at where the time went it's time to go..

"Com, you'll find some past episodes of casting actors cast so catch up on some of those episodes, earlier episodes are really much more hands on practical, application stuff, like pictures, and resumes, and how to get an agent, and there's a whole wealth. I think of podcast early on that you might not have thought of so please feel free to play catchup going to casting actors cast dot com, and I'm also running a kind of a cool little special. Gotta think like I'm the K Mark of podcasters. I guess, but if you go to casting actress cast, and you go to the area on the form that says jump into the talent pool. Fill out that form it'll open up a hyperlink to a free. Yes. I did say free book called conversation pieces out of the studio the voice over workshop for professional actors, and this is a book that I wrote a few years back because of the many colleges and universities that I do work with I would travel out and do it entire week's worth of training on being a professional voice actor because that was part of my background. And this book was as a result of that. So I've decided I'm just now going to give it away free of charge for those of you who wanted download up PDF. It's one hundred pages. I think it's really practical hands on good information. So consider that all just for filling out the form. Just so I get a sense of who's out there who's listening. You can make whatever comments that you want. And that's how I've heard from several people over the past week regarding previous episodes of casting actress cast I wanted to address a question that I did receive from Sean Quigley an actor in New York. Sean was kind enough to let me mention his name on the podcast. And I thought this is a really interesting question. So let's get this question out of the way. I and I'm happy to answer. But here's his Email. I would be very interested to hear advice in a podcast about whether in an audition an actor should use their own accent. As a default, if it is not specifically mentioned in the breakdown, but you perhaps feel as a performer it would work best in a dialect other than your own. I'm a British actor at NYC. And even though I use my own our voice in most occasions, and despite indicating it on my resume, I sometimes leave the room worrying that. I may have harmed. They're casting perception of me, just by the very act of me being British and sometimes wonder if it would help broaden my casting consideration. If I went in with a standard American. My accent work is solid and have a good ear. Thank you. So very much on Sean did the right thing. He went to casting actors cast and asked a question. So here's going to be my response to that question. First of all, I think it's an excellent question. I believe very strongly that if there is no mention of an accent in the audition bringing in your own accent is perfectly acceptable. I don't think it's a disqualifying thing. But here's something I would like you though, Sean to consider and that is if you have a really good strong American, and it happens to be an American playwright or a script written by an American and not specifically from Great Britain. Then my suggestion is that when you walk into the room, you introduce yourself as you would normally introduce yourself and let your British accent be what it is. Of course, you don't think of it as accent. I'm sure, but I guess my saying is let me see as many colors as I can in the audition environment. So if you walk in and you say. Michelle in Quigley. And it's a delight to be here today and lack to audition for you. Okay. You can tell me how good my accent was now. But then you do the audition in your fantastic -ly. Well, rendition of an American then I think that shows more colors and kind of broadens your range. A and I also think it's quite impressive. I think it's much easier for American actress to sound British. And there are a lot of terrible British exile accents out there, perhaps even including my own..

So very very much for tuning in. I just want to take a quick shout out mentioned for a young actor who wrote me, and he wrote me by going to casting actors cast all one word dot com and mentioned that he commutes from. Orange California where south orange California to Los Angeles to go to an acting class, and it's a two hour commute. Can you imagine two hours in traffic?

So it's still as relevant. I can promise you, and it's all about what to do to get into the voice over world. Get into the voice over business, everything from training, tips and suggestions and workshop ideas to putting together a demo tape. I think it's a really valuable thing to have. Plus, there's just a lot of performance skill things that I believe that if you have an interest in doing this, you're gonna find really really valuable -absolutely one hundred percent free of charge. Just as a thank you for letting me know that you're out there, as you know, this podcast is free of charge. We have no advertisements. We have. No sponsors. None of that. I just love doing this for the. Purpose of simply wanting to give back to the community of actors who are working really hard. I started as an actor. And I made my living as an actor for about twenty years, and then went into casting by joining the mccorkell casting team. I am one of four casting directors in the office, and we are working on several different projects simultaneously. It's been a a wild wild ride for the past few weeks because we've been doing I don't know six or seven different projects at the same time. And I had lots of dishes last week EPA's were working on the musical of sophisticated. Ladies I did a couple of workshops did a national monologue slam. I was a a guest speaker and judge of the national monologue slam. So there was just a lot of addition going on in my world this week. And I thought this would be a great time to talk about audition disasters things that go wrong in additions and what to do. To deal with those mishaps because you know, what we're all human beings. And we all make mistakes and mistakes are just you know, part of being a human. And so I wanna talk about those things that I experienced this week. And don't worry. I'm not going to use any names. I'm not going to be specific except for how to handle those specific things that do go wrong, and what to do the recover from them. So that's why we're calling today show addition disaster. So we're going to start with musicals talk about some musical issues that we had this week. We're also going to talk about when you're additioning with a monologue. Whether or not that's in front of an agent or manager or whether or not you're doing a Shakespeare Company monologue. And we're also then gonna talk about scenes disasters that have happened in scenes firsthand that I've experienced, and it's not really so much the disaster. It's how the actor chooses to. Recover from disaster. That really is the telling thing about you as a performer. So if you have at the ready some ways to deal with mishaps, I think that you're gonna feel a little more confident more confident about your work, plus you'll also be perceived as being more professional because this is the moment where you want to take out a pen and paper. This is it confidence equals competence confidence equals competence. So being a competent performer, meaning you need to demonstrate that you have confidence in your ability, and that confidence can translate itself, and how you recover from things that might go wrong. And guess what something is invariably going to go wrong in additions at some point in your career. They just are how do you handle it? What do you do to recover from those? Those situations that you find yourself in. So let's talk first about musical auditions. And so we are doing this production of sophisticated ladies and looks like it's going to be a really really wonderful musical. It was done in the eighties. And it's now being done again. And we're putting it together for a couple of sitdown theater tours. But we're also pretty confident that this might have some legs. And if you don't know what that means that is there's going to be a lot of attention for this to be thought of as a move to Broadway. Andre de shields is directing and with his name and his background. If you don't know who he is. I suggest really should just check him out in the original cast of eight misbehavin. He was the wiz in the wiz. And a lot of other really outstanding. Ding projects that he's been involved with over the years, and we've enjoyed working with him on several projects at mccorkell casting. So now he's directing this sophisticated ladies production, and it's strictly musical with notebook. In other words, there's no storyline. Really? But it is a musical revue of Duke Ellington music, and it's really going to be quite special and think the concept for the show is really also very exciting because he's going to reshape some of the work to satisfy today's audiences and the music of Duke Ellington is just so fantastic. So much fun that we are looking forward to working on this project. So one of the qualifications for the audition. And we made it very very clear to all of the actors both in the EP as and in the general additions that we handed out that there were just a few musical numbers that we did not want to hear the simple, ROY. Reason that they're not as complicated. Buzek -ly a material that shows off the performer's voice. So we wanted the performers who are coming into addition to stay away from two musical numbers. I'm not going to mention the names of the musical numbers. It's not that important, but we made it really really clear as per Andrei suggestion, please don't sing these two songs. So guess what? Why one actor comes in and says, well, I know you asked me not to sing the song. But that's the only song that I had.

"That are out there from casting directors. I hope that answers the question second. How often would you say you brought in someone to audition because you've received periodic updates and postcards from them. Well, the answer is I'm more likely to bring somebody and if they're sending periodic updates and postcards. Only because it's reminding me that you are out there. You know, we're not super human brainiacs in the casting office. I'm probably the lowest on the totem pole in terms of brainiac Ness, because I don't know I don't know if this is a male thing. But I kind of think it is. But that's very sexist. I guess for me to say, but I'm kind of only a one trick pony. Have only thinking of that particular project that I might be working out at any given time. Now, that's not to say I everything else. That's coming my way in terms of correspondence. And and contacts from people classes things like that. But I am sort of highly motivated to make sure that the project I'm working on is being fully realized for that producer or director on my vision is a little more myopic than let's say pats vision is and pad has one of those brains where she can literally have five or six projects going on simultaneously. But nevertheless, a correspondence. And if she knows your work or she's not familiar with your work. But new ride a postcard saying a, hey, I'm on this episode of thus. And so or I booked this theater job at such and such then the motivation is very very high to investigate that actor a little bit further. But that is probably not going to happen because a were not these super brainiacs. But be it. We didn't get a postcard from you. So if you choose not to send a postcard to us, then there's probably less likely chance that we're going to bring you win. But how often does that happen? Well, it happens frequently I can't really put a number to it for. Here's an example. I've just finished working on a casting session for a national tour touring show of play a project called turning fifteen on the road to freedom. It's a really wonderful adaptation of a book regarding the civil rights movement in the sixties, and we were looking. For non union actors of collar who could play the various roles, even the samba people all had several roles in which they're playing they had to have really excellent voices as well. So I had a very challenging especially because of this time of year. I had a challenging task ahead of me in terms of finding people that were going to fit the breakdown that I send out over actors access. And so I got a lot of returns from that. I got a lot of people who are interested in doing it. But then I also did receive some postcards. So my motivation was really high in any person that sent me a postcard I scrutinize. And there was a really strong chance that if you had some good solid singing in your background. And you had a few nice not overwhelmingly fantastic. But some nice credits behind you. There was a strong chance that you were going to be receiving an audition for that. Now, that's less likely to happen. When we're. Working on a feature film because we get inundated with requests from agents. And because it's union we have to make sure that we scrutinize all of the union talent. So if you are nonunion talent interested in being seen for this particular picture, the likelihood is much less that does that mean, you shouldn't send it. No. That just simply means that when you put a postcard in your mail box. You have to forget about it. You have to just say, well, that's one thing. I can check off my list of things to do today. And then just simply move on by chance. If there's something lands my desk and looks like it's really, right. And I do the required research. Then there's a really good chance. I could bring you in. But there is a less likelihood. So that's question. Number two. How often would you say I would say it's pretty often. But it is dependent on the kind of project that we're working on. So I hope that answers the question. I hope it doesn't beg off the question too much because I. I know that there is this sincere interest in getting some kind of a magic formula to make this work in sadly, there isn't one it's a systematic structured approach that is going to help you achieve those goals that you set out for yourself. I promise you. So here's the next question. Given that you're a busy office. You must get thousands of submissions for a role. Do you consider people who have taken your class or send you updates? I then go to submissions. Well, that is also very very good question. I think that question is referring much more to the timing of things. And depending upon the timing. It all can kind of converge at the same time if I'm teaching a class, and we're working on a project or we know of an upcoming project that we're working on. Yeah. There's a really good chance that if I see some really excellent talent that fits the Bill. There's a stronger. Hood that I'm going to bring you in for an audition. But that is not over and above the submissions that we also get so one doesn't supersede the other. It's kind of a simultaneous convergence of people who I know in my scope and people who are submitted from agents, and we do get hundreds and hundreds of submissions for particular films that were working on television projects that were working on. I wouldn't say we get thousands of submissions. The likelihood of a day player role in a smaller feature film with a budget of over a million to two point five million dollar picture. We might get four to five hundred submissions for that particular role. But we don't get thousands. Now, if we're doing a huge blockbuster motion picture that number does go up. But again, you might be thinking in terms of it being just. An overwhelming amount. And we have a systematic approach to how we go through the talent submissions. Plus, we go through our classes, we go through any resource that's out there in Vail lable to us now, I don't want to imply that if you take a class with a casting director that there's a much stronger likelihood that you're going to be brought in and this is a very touchy subject for a lot of casting directors, many casting directors don't teach and the reason that they don't teach as they think it might be a conflict of interest. They may feel that why should I put myself into a situation where I'm getting paid to watch people act for me when in fact that is my job to find people to act for me, my view is slightly different. But I'm very sensitive to the subject. Here's why I will only teach classes where I can provide the actor with usable sustainable helpful realistic. Feedback. There is no promise or guarantee that you're going to get a job because you take a class from casting director. I do my very very best to make sure that the classes I do teach are extremely worthwhile. I happen to really love teaching. I'm very passionate about I'm passionate about seeing what I call the cocoon to butterfly somebody who doesn't have a lot of experience or somebody who hasn't been in the profession for a long period of time or people been in the profession for a long period of time. I loved to see the actors grow as a result of some feedback or some tips, some advice, some nurturing all of those things are things I pride myself when I teach classes, so I can really justify teaching because I honestly believe that I'm helping to make the community of actors stronger and better, I know that may sound pretentious. I don't mean it to I just feel really good about giving back things. That I didn't get when I was an actor. Now, having said that there have been many many occasions when I recall an actor that I've worked with from class to come in and addition so that does happen. I just believe strongly that that should not be an expectation when you sign up for a class what you should get out of. It is the information the instruction and the growth that you experience as a result of the teaching and learning process and the final question if you were an actor now in New York City, and knowing what you know is a casting director, would you be spending your money, taking classes with other casting directors? Well, the sort of piggybacks off of the statement, I just made about working with casting directors. But I think that taking classes with casting directors is a really smart idea. And here's why one is for example, if you want to go. On law and order as VU which shooting here in New York, then you should consider taking a class with Jonathan Strauss. Jonathan Strauss was a casting director on law and order for many years now, he's executive producer. But occasionally he still teaches a class in acting on law and order now what you should know about dig wolf productions as that the acting style in all of these law and order law and order SVU, Chicago med all of those dick wolf productions there's a very specific acting style that is looked for. And if you're not quite familiar with that style taking a class will really give you that skill set. So you'll have a really much stronger inside view of what it is to act for that particular show because it's a style Listrik choice that is being looked for when though shows get cast so absolutely from somebody who has that much experience, and I have. Happened to work with Jonathan a hundred years ago, when I was executive director of training school in New York, and it was really a great pleasure. And he's really knowledgeable guy. So by all means that would be a great reason to take from a casting director. I mean, there's another casting director would be Kim Measham bowling Nisha. She is not only a wonderful human being a great lady. But she does I don't know. Maybe ten two dozen pilots during pilot season. I mean, she's just an amazing amount of work that they have. And they get all of these pilots, and if she's teaching a class in how to audition for a pilot than boy, I can't think of a better way to learn that specific skills at that might be necessary that you might not have experience in now. Should you think that she might bring you in for an audition? I wouldn't go there. I wouldn't make that the defining reason for taking a class if it happens. That's great. But the expectation should be a learning experience in the classroom with somebody who's doing it. I would refrain from taking classes from people who aren't actually working in the chosen field. That's just my personal opinion. I always think that if you're a professional you should work with other. It professionals, and that means that they are working in the field that they're teaching having said that there are some fantastic acting teachers that are out there. They're not necessarily acting. But that's different. That's a different question than you're asking on it. I believe that casting directors can be an offense casting resource of learning. And if by chance they happen to think of you for a particular project down the road, then also much the better, my regret was that. I didn't do enough of those kinds of classes when I started acting. So I would absolutely depending upon your financial situation. Make sure that you investigate the kinds of classes that are outs out there. You'll just have to do your research a word of mouth talking to other actors. But as you do the research, you're going to find that there is a clear cut level of experienced that these people in the profession have that can be helpful to you. In terms of learning not in terms of booking you. Wow. Time just flies doesn't it? I hope that that's been helpful. And I just really wanna put my thanks so much to Ahmet out there who sent me these questions, and I look forward to having you come back, please come back. Please listen to some past episodes. Let me know that you're listening because I really really appreciate it. And thanks. This is cast after scouts. You've been listening to casting actors cast with host Jeffrey Joyce Bach.

"That are out there from casting directors. I hope that answers the question second. How often would you say you brought in someone to audition because you've received periodic updates and postcards from them. Well, the answer is I'm more likely to bring somebody and if they're sending periodic updates and postcards. Only because it's reminding me that you are out there. You know, we're not super human brainiacs in the casting office. I'm probably the lowest on the totem pole in terms of brainiac Ness, because I don't know I don't know if this is a male thing. But I kind of think it is. But that's very sexist. I guess for me to say, but I'm kind of only a one trick pony. Have only thinking of that particular project that I might be working out at any given time. Now, that's not to say I everything else. That's coming my way in terms of correspondence. And and contacts from people classes things like that. But I am sort of highly motivated to make sure that the project I'm working on is being fully realized for that producer or director on my vision is a little more myopic than let's say pats vision is and pad has one of those brains where she can literally have five or six projects going on simultaneously. But nevertheless, a correspondence. And if she knows your work or she's not familiar with your work. But new ride a postcard saying a, hey, I'm on this episode of thus. And so or I booked this theater job at such and such then the motivation is very very high to investigate that actor a little bit further. But that is probably not going to happen because a were not these super brainiacs. But be it. We didn't get a postcard from you. So if you choose not to send a postcard to us, then there's probably less likely chance that we're going to bring you win. But how often does that happen? Well, it happens frequently I can't really put a number to it for. Here's an example. I've just finished working on a casting session for a national tour touring show of play a project called turning fifteen on the road to freedom. It's a really wonderful adaptation of a book regarding the civil rights movement in the sixties, and we were looking. For non union actors of collar who could play the various roles, even the samba people all had several roles in which they're playing they had to have really excellent voices as well. So I had a very challenging especially because of this time of year. I had a challenging task ahead of me in terms of finding people that were going to fit the breakdown that I send out over actors access. And so I got a lot of returns from that. I got a lot of people who are interested in doing it. But then I also did receive some postcards. So my motivation was really high in any person that sent me a postcard I scrutinize. And there was a really strong chance that if you had some good solid singing in your background. And you had a few nice not overwhelmingly fantastic. But some nice credits behind you. There was a strong chance that you were going to be receiving an audition for that. Now, that's less likely to happen. When we're. Working on a feature film because we get inundated with requests from agents. And because it's union we have to make sure that we scrutinize all of the union talent. So if you are nonunion talent interested in being seen for this particular picture, the likelihood is much less that does that mean, you shouldn't send it. No. That just simply means that when you put a postcard in your mail box. You have to forget about it. You have to just say, well, that's one thing. I can check off my list of things to do today. And then just simply move on by chance. If there's something lands my desk and looks like it's really, right. And I do the required research. Then there's a really good chance. I could bring you in. But there is a less likelihood. So that's question. Number two. How often would you say I would say it's pretty often. But it is dependent on the kind of project that we're working on. So I hope that answers the question. I hope it doesn't beg off the question too much because I. I know that there is this sincere interest in getting some kind of a magic formula to make this work in sadly, there isn't one it's a systematic structured approach that is going to help you achieve those goals that you set out for yourself. I promise you. So here's the next question. Given that you're a busy office. You must get thousands of submissions for a role. Do you consider people who have taken your class or send you updates? I then go to submissions. Well, that is also very very good question. I think that question is referring much more to the timing of things. And depending upon the timing. It all can kind of converge at the same time if I'm teaching a class, and we're working on a project or we know of an upcoming project that we're working on. Yeah. There's a really good chance that if I see some really excellent talent that fits the Bill. There's a stronger. Hood that I'm going to bring you in for an audition. But that is not over and above the submissions that we also get so one doesn't supersede the other. It's kind of a simultaneous convergence of people who I know in my scope and people who are submitted from agents, and we do get hundreds and hundreds of submissions for particular films that were working on television projects that were working on. I wouldn't say we get thousands of submissions. The likelihood of a day player role in a smaller feature film with a budget of over a million to two point five million dollar picture. We might get four to five hundred submissions for that particular role. But we don't get thousands. Now, if we're doing a huge blockbuster motion picture that number does go up. But again, you might be thinking in terms of it being just. An overwhelming amount. And we have a systematic approach to how we go through the talent submissions. Plus, we go through our classes, we go through any resource that's out there in Vail lable to us now, I don't want to imply that if you take a class with a casting director that there's a much stronger likelihood that you're going to be brought in and this is a very touchy subject for a lot of casting directors, many casting directors don't teach and the reason that they don't teach as they think it might be a conflict of interest. They may feel that why should I put myself into a situation where I'm getting paid to watch people act for me when in fact that is my job to find people to act for me, my view is slightly different. But I'm very sensitive to the subject. Here's why I will only teach classes where I can provide the actor with usable sustainable helpful realistic. Feedback. There is no promise or guarantee that you're going to get a job because you take a class from casting director. I do my very very best to make sure that the classes I do teach are extremely worthwhile. I happen to really love teaching. I'm very passionate about I'm passionate about seeing what I call the cocoon to butterfly somebody who doesn't have a lot of experience or somebody who hasn't been in the profession for a long period of time or people been in the profession for a long period of time. I loved to see the actors grow as a result of some feedback or some tips, some advice, some nurturing all of those things are things I pride myself when I teach classes, so I can really justify teaching because I honestly believe that I'm helping to make the community of actors stronger and better, I know that may sound pretentious.

This is that portion of the podcast where I let you know that you can get all of the previous episodes of casting actors cast on the website. It is ironically enough casting actors cast dot com. All one word casting actors cast dot com. And I think you already know how much I appreciate you tuning into the podcast. It's a great pleasure from you to do this. And as long as I have listeners listening, I'm going to keep on doing these podcasts. So please let me know that you're out there by going to the website casting actress cast nor a couple of ways in which you can stay in touch with me one is by simply clicking on leave a message, and the other is that you can actually leave a voice message. It's kinda cool. It's a new app that I downloaded on the website. And that is you just click a button and the microphone comes up, and you can just leave any kind of question or a comment or concern? Or maybe there's an episode you'd like to hear more information about so simply go to casting actors cast dot com. And thank you again. Now, speaking of asking questions, I was really thrilled to get a contact form message from the website from a listener. And I thought that the listeners entire series of questions really be quite useful. Because these are questions that I think you might have from previous episodes. I'm going to read the entire Email. And then I'm going to break up each of the answers to the questions because I think it's really worthwhile spending a moment in responding to these important questions, and I met rights. Hello, Jeffrey, I listened to your keeping in touch episode. And I'm wondering if an actor does not have representation, how valuable is the idea of keeping in touch. How often would you say you brought in someone to audition because you've received periodic updates and postcards from them. And then the third question given that you're busy. Office. You must get thousands of submissions for role. How do you consider people who have taken your class or sends you updates? I then go on submissions question-mark. Lastly, if you you're were an actor now in NYC, knowing what you know now as a casting director, would you be spending your money, taking classes with other casting directors? Thanks and enjoy listening Ahmed. Well, thank you so much. I'm Ed those are four I thought they were three reread the Email there actually for really really excellent questions. So what I thought would be great is to just simply go through your Email and answer the questions on Tena sleepy. Give you whatever inside. I have regarding these questions. So the first question is I'm wondering if an actor does not have representation, how valuable is the idea of keeping in touch, and I think this is a really excellent question because you might assume from that previous episodes, and by the way, go to casting actress cast because you can get all of the previous episodes, so far we're up to number thirty six. So I encourage you to kind of look at the titles, and maybe read if you of the descriptions and see if there's some information there that you might want. But this particular episode was down a few three or four weeks ago. I guess keeping in touch, maybe even longer my brain. I don't always quite remember. Anyway. So we talked literally about how do you maintain contact with your agent, and I really kind of made a bit of a mistake by making it only about your agent because the reality is if you don't have representation than keeping the contacts alive by going to those agents who you are interested in having represent you is part of that list that you should be maintaining contact with. So just because you don't have representation that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a regularly scheduled contact via Email or postcard to agents and casting directors especially those agents, and casting directors who, you know, through your research talking to other friends going online, if you know that these casting directors, for example, are working on a specific show that you're interested in being on maybe shooting here in New York or shooting in Los Angeles. Then you should really make. Take a structured effort to send out correspondence to any of those people who might be of help to you in your career. So I think keeping in touch is extremely valuable because here's the other thing not from your point of view, but take it from our point of view that the way that we think about actors is that they are absolutely necessary to the work that we do. But also, it's not useful for us as casting directors to take big risks with bringing in folks, whose work were not familiar with we as casting directors have to be able to talk well about you and have enough information about you and your work. So that we with confidence can bring you into an audition. And so when you send a postcard you're really starting that sort of first line of communication in terms of developing a relationship now relationships are developed over time. If for example, I'm watching an episode, and I happened to see a small part that you're playing a television episode. And then I get a postcard from you. Or I get a postcard from you. That says, hey, I'm on this particular episode, please watch you know, I'm much more motivated to not only watch. But now I have additional information about you as an actor and that can go a long way towards bringing you in for an audition. I think that makes sense a blind postcard to a casting director or two in agent is a little more challenging because we get inundated with those kinds of correspondence. But that should not prevent you from sending things to us, especially and this is as I mentioned in that episode. If there is a specific reason that you're sending it to me an reasons can be as varied as your imagination and your business acumen. Accurate, and that's pretty good work. And that means that if you're taking a new class if you gotten a booking on anything you writing to at agent saying I'm booked on this and don't have representation with up to have a chance to talk to you. That's highly motivating reason for an agent to go. Here's a working actor who doesn't have representation that me pursue this same with the casting director you develop relationships with casting directors over time. It's not magical it just simply happens over time. As you get to know us, we get to know you and keep thinking in terms of being the CEO of your own company, and your marketing is just part of the overall strategy towards that only seeking representation, but getting yourself into the scope for lack of a better way to say it of the. -tunities that

Or maybe there's an episode you'd like to hear more information about so simply go to casting actors cast dot com. And thank you again. Now, speaking of asking questions, I was really thrilled to get a contact form message from the website from a listener. And I thought that the listeners entire series of questions really be quite useful. Because these are questions that I think you might have from previous episodes. I'm going to read the entire Email. And then I'm going to break up each of the answers to the questions because I think it's really worthwhile spending a moment in responding to these important questions, and I met rights. Hello, Jeffrey, I listened to your keeping in touch episode. And I'm wondering if an actor does not have representation, how valuable is the idea of keeping in touch. How often would you say you brought in someone to audition because you've received periodic updates and postcards from them. And then the third question given that you're busy. Office. You must get thousands of submissions for role. How do you consider people who have taken your class or sends you updates? I then go on submissions question-mark. Lastly, if you you're were an actor now in NYC, knowing what you know now as a casting director, would you be spending your money, taking classes with other casting directors? Thanks and enjoy listening Ahmed. Well, thank you so much. I'm Ed those are four I thought they were three reread the Email there actually for really really excellent questions. So what I thought would be great is to just simply go through your Email and answer the questions on Tena sleepy. Give you whatever inside. I have regarding these questions. So the first question is I'm wondering if an actor does not have representation, how valuable is the idea of keeping in touch, and I think this is a really excellent question because you might assume from that previous episodes, and by the way, go to casting actress cast because you can get all of the previous episodes, so far we're up to number thirty six. So I encourage you to kind of look at the titles, and maybe read if you of the descriptions and see if there's some information there that you might want. But this particular episode was down a few three or four weeks ago. I guess keeping in touch, maybe even longer my brain. I don't always quite remember. Anyway. So we talked literally about how do you maintain contact with your agent, and I really kind of made a bit of a mistake by making it only about your agent because the reality is if you don't have representation than keeping the contacts alive by going to those agents who you are interested in having represent you is part of that list that you should be maintaining contact with. So just because you don't have representation that doesn't mean you shouldn't have a regularly scheduled contact via Email or postcard to agents and casting directors especially those agents, and casting directors who, you know, through your research talking to other friends going online, if you know that these casting directors, for example, are working on a specific show that you're interested in being on maybe shooting here in New York or shooting in Los Angeles. Then you should really make. Take a structured effort to send out correspondence to any of those people who might be of help to you in your career. So I think keeping in touch is extremely valuable because here's the other thing not from your point of view, but take it from our point of view that the way that we think about actors is that they are absolutely necessary to the work that we do. But also, it's not useful for us as casting directors to take big risks with bringing in folks, whose work were not familiar with we as casting directors have to be able to talk well about you and have enough information about you and your work. So that we with confidence can bring you into an audition. And so when you send a postcard you're really starting that sort of first line of communication in terms of developing a relationship now relationships are developed over time. If for example, I'm watching an episode, and I happened to see a small part that you're playing a television episode. And then I get a postcard from you. Or I get a postcard from you. That says, hey, I'm on this particular episode, please watch you know, I'm much more motivated to not only watch. But now I have additional information about you as an actor and that can go a long way towards bringing you in for an audition. I think that makes sense a blind postcard to a casting director or two in agent is a little more challenging because we get inundated with those kinds of correspondence. But that should not prevent you from sending things to us, especially and this is as I mentioned in that episode. If there is a specific reason that you're sending it to me an reasons can be as varied as your imagination and your business acumen. Accurate, and that's pretty good work. And that means that if you're taking a new class if you gotten a booking on anything you writing to at agent saying I'm booked on this and don't have representation with up to have a chance to talk to you. That's highly motivating reason for an agent to go. Here's a working actor who doesn't have representation that me pursue this same with the casting director you develop relationships with casting directors over time. It's not magical it just simply happens over time. As you get to know us, we get to know you and keep thinking in terms of being the CEO of your own company, and your marketing is just part of the overall strategy towards that only seeking representation, but getting yourself into the scope for lack of a better way to say it of the. -tunities that

"Thank you so much. I think the way we're going to do this as talk about the differences between film and television casting. So the first thing I'd like to share with you is answering the question, what is the casting process for films? And then we're gonna talk about what is the casting process for television starting with films. The biggest difference between the two is that the film has ding process is longer it just simply takes a longer period of time. Oftentimes, there's more money involved. Oftentimes, there are more extensive meetings and discussions with the director of that film with casting to really fine. Tune what the vision is for the particular project for the particular film project, and so the producer of the film. Will make sure that the casting director is appropriate for the medium of that. The film is taking on what I mean by medium, which is the John Ryan, I guess I used the word medium and of not correctly, but the genre. What kind of film is? It is an action adventure zero Mandic comedy, you get the idea. So then the process the early process starts with the producer, and or director and or writer making contact with the casting. Now, the casting process is very much the same for film and television. But it just simply seems to take a longer period of time for that actor to come in for their first addition, sometimes the director or and or writer, sometimes they're both the director and writer one in the same. They will give feedback and it becomes a series of additions for that particular act or actors can come back three and four times sometimes although the unions have some rules about how many times the actor can actually come back for call backs. But suffice it to say that the process is a slow progressive methodical well thought out on the nation of bringing in the talent bringing in the insomnia all of actors that are going to represent the vision of the peace also know that the casting director is one of the first of the creative team to get hired. Casting is one of those really important first steps in getting that film launched getting that film off the ground. So to speak. Now, the process for casting directors getting hired is just as challenging and can be just as frustrating and just as exciting as it is for actors to get cast in a feature film in essence. We addition all the time for our work to be a picked up by those producers, and or director writer than any actor has going out for film or television project. That's why I rep you tation our background the previous work that we've done in films really counts towards whether or not we get a director that really is excited to work with us and a producer who's equally excited to work with us so much like an actor. We are open to meetings and talking about our work to any producer director that is interested. In fact, it might even surprise you to know that we have an agent we have somebody that represents us, especially for those large. Your budget feature films that we work on only because we don't want to negotiate our own contract, and then have to work with whatever that negotiated contract is it's always great to have sort of a middle person working on our behalf just as it is.

"Thank you for joining us on another episode of casting actors cast. That's really great to have you today. And I really mean that, you know, I'm getting a lot of responses about the podcast. I appreciate that so much. So if you're interested in joining what we call the talent pool, you might wanna go to casting actors, cast dot com. And you'll see a little bit of a notation saying, jump in the talent pool and please jump in. I received a really nice communication from a listener in Australia name Christian beyond Leckie. Hope. I'm saying that right Christian apologize if I didn't get that correct. Christian Bielecki from Australia who really had a great question that I thought would be the theme of today's podcast that we're going to answer Christians question, and then we're also going to maybe address them of yours. How do I get noticed? That's the question. And if I'm understanding the. Question correctly. It really is about how do you get your acting talent to be seen to be objectively evaluated to be taken a look at that can be for whether or not you're looking for an agent or manager, or you wanna get known by a casting director. Perhaps you wanna get known by the general public just because of the work that you're doing, how does an actor get attention? So we're going to answer those questions. Is three simple steps that are going to really answer that, but also take you into the world of what it is to market yourself as an actor. So thank you to the question Christian, and I think we'll start off by talking about all of the right reasons for somebody to get attention as an actor and really if you're looking for a way to obtain an agent or a manager. And in fact, I think we'll do it entire podcast on how to get an agent or manager. I think that's a really great right reason. For wanting to know how to get attention because ultimately, as a professional, you really wanna make sure that you are seen by those people who can represent you and represent your talent when they go out into the world and sell your talent to those people who wanna buy it, whether it's filmmaker, whether it's a theater producer, whether it's television producer those agents and managers are the ones who can get you into the door. So how'd you get noticed those are the right reasons for doing that. So it takes a lot of focus on who that target audience is. So you really need to define exactly what reason do you wanna get noticed if you really are focused on getting somebody to represent your talent, like in the form of an agent, that's an excellent goal, and you can be very specific about how to achieve that, and I'm gonna help you with that just a moment, but also perhaps you just want to be known amongst your peers may be fellow actors. Maybe wanna know the acting community. Better. So that would be a way in which you can address getting known within your own peer group community also don't forget about casting directors, you know, uh, skies, knowing a casting director can be a valuable addition to your career. In that a lot of times casting directors can recommend to agents and managers who they like, who they're working with. Boy, there's an addition session that doesn't go by where we don't hear from an agent saying, can I get some feedback from my client and that our opportunity to say, boy, that actor did a really, really good job. And I really like them. Sometimes we'll say, you know, you don't represent this particular client, but he did such a thin tastic addition and were calling back and he doesn't have representations. So you might wanna take a look at them so that oftentimes will happen now some of the wrong reasons that people choose to getting noticed..
