"It's good stuff. We had a major retirement in the NHL since we last met. A boy here in Boston, the phenom, two caressed. A comeback attempt with the bruins, four games that lasted and he retired after 15 NHL seasons. He had a statement. He said my body's not responding the way it needs to be to play at the level. I expect of myself in my teammates and bruins fans deserve better. You know what? You gotta give him credit when he wanted to leave it all out there. He did, he come back from this major surgery and the bruise gave me the opportunity and it just wasn't there. So he has no what ifs no regrets and he leaves the games the bruins all time leader on when of course he won the vesna in 2014. He has the second best save percentage in NHL history with 9 to one. It's just one point behind and dryden got Donna cash at Ken dryden. Unbelievable Hall of Fame. And, you know, meatheads around here are still going to bitch about them instead of appreciating what he bought and they always bring up 2013 and 2019 in which case they wouldn't even have gotten that far if it wasn't for two GRAS and he didn't blow those games. He didn't give a pizza goal. He didn't give up a goal from the blue line. It was a series of errors by a bunch of people that reasons why the bruins lost those games and I don't know how people don't appreciate this guy for what he did here. Yeah, it's just like the age old argument. In the city of Boston with the success the last 20 years. If you didn't win a title, like how great can you really be? In some people's mind. Now I think maybe because I played the game, I'm a little jaded in the fact that I think this is the best bruins goalie in the history of the organization and they'll be bruins fans who call me in Sanders, Jerry cheevers and Tim Thomas, one of them the Stanley Cup put this guy's numbers and the consistency and every single year he played knowing that you had a top 5 top ten goalie in the league. I've had arguments with so many different buddies about two is not gonna fairway folds that idiot rugo that dummy. They all, they always complain. He can't win the big one. He kept in the big one. All right, he said the best they never even would have had a chance to get there and win without him. So he made the game look easy. He's a great guy. You talk to any person that play with him, you saw some of his bruins teammates, whether it be on Instagram or Twitter, you know, give some nice sentiments about what an unreal person took arras. And I've got the chance to skate with him in the summers, gets gnome a little bit. He's just a classy guy and he always showed up to work. He was a professional. He did his job and he played fantastic goal goaltending his entire career and so when I look at people say, what a scrubby didn't win. It's like, you'll never be able to change those people's minds because, oh, I didn't win the big one. He didn't win the big one. So if you want to think that this guy was a boss or a bad goalie or was never good enough or not even close to the best ruins goalie in the history of the franchise, then that's your right to think that way. I think you're nuts, but you got to watch a guy who consistently was one of the best in the world that his position and just because of some unfortunate, you know, well, first off, unfortunately, 2013, the Blackhawks were so much better than that brunstein. That Blackhawks team was a joke. I mean, nobody was beaten them. They had the chance to get him the game 7 even. And the blues, they get, you know, they did go to game 7 and Marshawn had kind of that tough play in the first period of game 7 with the change and all of a sudden that game's over and the blues had an awesome team. So he never got the finger. Do you like that? They're starting goalie. For Stanley Cup champion, but he should be an all timer ruins great and he is in my mind. You want to dump on RNH again with before I start talking? Just dump it on guys. What are you gonna be the father? I'm a big tuca fan. My favorite team police in Florida got as I said from the beginning, slamming the goalie of the future. You keep him in line. Everything you said about two command? You said they should trade him. If you think that I meant that without knowing the health of tukar asked, that was if tukharas was going to be able to lead them on another cup run. So you can't that's completely voided out with the fact that there was obviously dialog that this was he was going to try it. We didn't know that because he wasn't going to let everybody else know. So I don't know, I don't know what you guys remember. That was a hypothetical if RAS steps and takes the reins. Now swimming's your guy. And I'm on the swayman train. So congratulations, couple clicks for tuca on an unbelievable career. All those idiots. Not too many. Yeah. All those idiots who said he's not the best group ruins goalie of all time. Now that is the second best save percentage in the history of the NHL with goalies who have played at least 300 games. I could double check that the minute a month, the games, but either way, I mean, right now you see Sarah's tie at RAS. So I don't think the minimum games matter basically. I think that was any number one in save percentage in the playoffs too long. Actually, I'm glad you brought that up with his safer his playoff safe percentage is tenth all time 9 two 5. I actually had a little trivia. Can you guys name talking about that? Jesus that the guys before him, there's a few surprises when you look at the top ten playoffs 8% of these all time and the minimum number of games listed here is 22, but there's a few names on this list that jump out at you. Can you guys like wacky names? You know what? No, no, no. Number four was like holy shit. I mean, no disrespect to the guy. He's still playing. He's a journeyman. He's been around. And Mike holy shit. He's number four on the all time playoffs. Okay, let's have an elimination game here where it's fun. We'll let you go first. So if you miss a name, you're off. You don't get the guess. It is tough. Minimum of 20 playoff games started. The lowest number on this list, I'm saying from the NHL records. The fewest games is one guy has 22 games, but the number one guy had 51 games played 51 playoff games played. And do you know who number one is? I would say I don't know number one, but Jonathan quick? Nope. Let me run it down because I don't know if you got Tim Thomas is number one at 9 33. Oh God. The argument right now. All right, dude, number two, Mike Smith at 9 31. That's what I'm saying, boys. Number three, Jonas Hilla Anaheim in Calgary at a 9 30. He was insane. We bought Detroit to game 7 after knocking off the president's trophy winner sharks in the first round, and he was unbeatable. No surprise there. Jose. This number four. With the 9 29 save percentage in 48 games, Craig Anderson on the all time play. Wow. Yeah. Number 5, Thomas Vulcan. Number 6 holy cold zig no surprise their number 7 Patrick laem in 41 games had a 9 two 6 8 percentage. Number 8 Braden holtby, no surprise there, number 9 JS Jaguar with the 9 two 5 tied with tuca no surprise there, but a couple of those names jump out at you man. You guys didn't figure them out. So no, I mean, it wasn't a disc, you know, you could have sat for 2020 days. And the rest of the pod. I'm fucking coming at you. Come on, wait, it's open season of you all the time. So anyways, at tuca, we love you here.

"Is Pride Month. And in this week's Kaleidoscope, we take a look at Las Vegas Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib, who came out this week as gay. Here's CBS News correspondent Mola Leng. Raiders defensive end Carl Nassib says he has agonized over this moment for the last 15 years. I've been meaning to do this for a while now, but I finally felt comfortable enough to get it off my chest, although other players have come out as gay after retiring, Nassib will be the first openly gay active NFL athlete to play in a regular season. In a statement accompanying the video, he said, I stand on the shoulders of giants, incredible people who have paved the way for me to have this opportunity. The 28 year old also announced he's donating $100. $1000 to the Trevor Project, a suicide prevention and crisis intervention Organization for LGBTQ youth. He is an inspiring figure now for so many LGBT two young people CEO of Met, Paley said. Nassib is sending a message to others. I hope people will see this announcement and feel motivated to say we need to create a world where everyone can play sports when they want to, regardless of their sexual orientation or their change your identity fellow players like, say, Kwan Barkley, J. J. Watt in Solomon, Thomas or Among the NFL stars showing their support online. I actually hope that one day videos like this and the whole coming out process or just not necessary. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell echoed Nassib, saying the league shares his hope that someday soon statements like his Will no longer be newsworthy. I just think that representation and visibility are so important. I'm gonna do my best and do my part to cultivate a culture that's accepting that's compassionate. NASA will be the first openly gay athlete to take the field in the regular season as we mentioned, but you might remember Michael Sam was the first openly gay player to be drafted by an NFL team back in 2014 when he was picked By the ST Louis Rams never ended up making a team never took the field of played in the regular season. But it was certainly a seminal moment for the league in for pro sports back then Sam tweeting his support, saying, Thank you for owning your truth.

Laura Podesta, CBS News, Brooklyn, New York. There are about 1.2 million people in the United States with HIV, and there are many people who have it, but they don't know it. NATIONAL HIV Testing Day is on June 27th a day to encourage people to go and get tested doctor Laura Cheevers, a physician and associate administrator for the HIV AIDS Bureau, at the Health Resources and Services Administration. She joins us today to talk about just how important this is. I want to begin by taking a look back Many years ago, HIV was A very deadly diseases carried a big stigma as well. But treatments have come quite a long way. Absolutely. When I first started working on HIV in 1990 most people that were diagnosed head about six months on average to live today, if someone is diagnosed and started a medication and take them every day, they can live in near normal life stand with HIV, and by being on medications that are effective. They can prevent further transmission of HIV to other people, So it's really important both for the patient and for their loved ones to get tested on treatment. Treatments have come a long way. Talk about people's perceptions towards HIV. Has that changed through the years Have we made any progress there years and years ago, young boy named Ryan White acquired HIV and all he wanted to do with the rest of his life was to go to school, and he was not allowed to do that in his community, even though we know HIV is not casually transmitted, and I have to say that the stigma about HIV really persist today. Not quite that badly, but people still do not have a good understanding that HIV is not easily transmissible its main Through sex in the United States, and people can live a long, healthy life with HIV. What about treatments for those in underserved communities? Maybe those without health insurance as well. Is there a way that they can get tested early on so they can have a shot at living a long life? Yes, So the theme of National HIV Testing Day this year is my test my way, which really emphasizes there are lots of different ways and places to get tested for HIV, including in the home or preferred location for some Testing. Obviously, you can also do get HIV tested in your health department or in your doctor's office. The other important thing to remember is that we have the Ryan White HIV AIDS program in the U. S. The national program that funds HIV care and treatment for people who can't afford to get it on their own. So who should be getting tested? Doctor Shiver. So the C D. C recommends an HIV test at least once in a lifetime for everyone in the U. S. That is between the ages of 13 and 64 that said, for people that have had new sexual partners since their last test, particularly if you don't know your sexual partners sexual history, you should get retested. HIV is a sexually transmitted disease so people that are having sex with other people are at risk of HIV. Are you finding that the numbers of people getting tested for HIV dropped in the past year when we were dealing with this pandemic? Did covid cause a big setback in that? Yes, so we definitely had fewer tests being done in the typical locations during coach By 30% or more in many locations towards the end of last year, the CDC was able to get up and really expand their self testing initiative. So people that want to get tested can go to the CDCs Web page covid in HIV and get information and guidance on self testing, including their ability to order a self test. We talked about the big number at the beginning about 1.2 million people here in the United States have HIV, but a very startling number is the amount of people that Have it are living with it and are pretty much unaware of it. Right. So this is a critical part of getting tested of the 1.2 million people in the United States who have HIV about 13% don't know They have it and need to get tested. That's about one in eight people today, so we've made some progress. We need to continue to have people get tested. Many people getting tested don't consider themselves at risk. But if you've had sex with other people you are at risk for HIV National HIV Testing Day is June 27th up next, The Biden administration acknowledges they won't hit their vaccination goal. We don't see it exactly like.

Novelist Donald Ray Pollock On Factory Work And Finding Fiction Later In Life
"Today's first guest is author Donald Ray Pollock, whose novel the devil all the time has just been made into a new netflix movie premiering next Wednesday. It Stars Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson, and here's a taste in this clip. A young boy has just watched his father pulverized two guys after they made lewd comments about the father's wife, the son's mother. Afterward the father gives his son some advice. You remember what I told you. On. The buzzer gave you. That's what I mean. got. To. Sir. Good sons of bitches out there. One hundred. These that many. Cannonball. In, both the movie and the novel the characters in the devil all the time are driven to extremes whether their fathers and sons, serial killers or preachers. The story begins in the small town of knock him stiff a real place in southern Ohio where Donald Ray pollock grew up. He didn't become a writer until he put in over thirty years at the local paper mill and got sober. But. Once he did start writing. He was noticed quickly receiving both awards and critical. Acclaim. Terry, gross spoke to Donald Ray pollock in twenty eleven when the devil, all the time was first published. Donald, Ray pollock welcome to fresh air. I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven. The devil all the time a new movie based on his novel of the same name.

you happen is where they get anywhere with dating the stress of career changes and the list goes on and on and on so when you hear things like that where people aren't happy is that part of the inspiration of your series of books I think so I think I mean I was born in the same world as everybody else he and it wasn't until I was a four decades into it there are realized I was getting it all wrong and what I was getting wrong was I was looking for happiness I was trying to find and things in a job in a car yet are and it took me maybe I'm just a slow learner but it took me a long time to realize that the happiness thing I'd have to do that myself and that it was an odd sight of me that I'd have to find a way to bring happiness to the table so yeah I mean there's a lot of my work about what you bring to the table and why is the book title do the work I don't know if you noticed but there's a lot of self help self growth personal development they are right and seminars and classes and all kinds of stuff and life coaches all be a ton of it right and I don't think people really realize the work that it takes it actually takes you to do the work on your life you know you can't expected you cherry pick your way through a book and walk out of that you know with the arms and on or something you know it's not going to work out for you and so and this book to the work I I'll lay it out and I ask the reader some will only come off really challenging questions for your answer but I say if you answer those questions honestly with yourself you're now on the pathway to the can a life change that you're after Gerry so I want I want to save thank you for a book title we can say on air I think that's right well step forward for us second question actually is so why wasn't this

currently using your life for can I ask you the kind of questions that will allow you to number one tell yourself the truth but secondly for you to determine what it's gonna take in each of those areas from yellow to turn this around I give you step by step guide for instance for how to forgive someone how to forgive yourself how do I accept someone where do you look for coverage things that we think we should know but we don't know you know for some reason you know people might say to you you know you should forgive that person but how do you deal with where do you start what do you address first so that's what I want to give people I want to give people like I do he stand no bones about it guy he'd you know like how to kind of get yourself for instance you know we all have things about ourselves that we tolerate well how do I do what I may tolerate my impatience I might tolerate might anger I might tolerate might have to see how do I deal with out what's it going to take from me and what are the steps and you know this is really what this new book is gonna get you don't get you taken brand new actions in some old and tired the areas of life so you hear the phrase I'll be happy if I win the Lotto but you say we're talking author Gary jumping ship free wrote the book on believe yourself now his new book called do the work but you say about that specific mindset I guess is it we can change our quality of life without making more money offshore I mean look how many a less knows told themselves when they get the job that they currently have before they had this job well yeah when I get that job is going to fix everything and yet you you are like miserable unfulfilled or whatever the heck the thing as the lord of your life is currently peppered with things at once upon a time used to be a dream for you out whether it be a relationship a job or career location and yet somehow it never quite dead yet it seemed like it would but it didn't I am at some point you might want to ask yourself where is your happiness actually located in if you keep looking outside of yourself for that answer you'll die you with that on on sept so when you talk about in the book you talk about repairing relationships or at least learning how to live with love relationships talk a little bit about the one component that was intriguing to me as you mention courage can you talk a little bit about that yeah I've gone through this lots of times with people people that I've coached the end of my own life and when I can I want to let something go for instance of me if I've maybe been hanging on to something and and and my wife like in a particular relationship like I'm right and you're wrong which was a very common one I mean I'm hanging on my righteousness and I'm I even tell some people that I'm hanging on to it and say you know no they didn't do the right thing and you know this is what it's been all about well what if I say well I want to like go without skin like I can't like this kind of toxic thing that I'm hanging on to for myself how do I let that go well the first thing I'm going to have to face says all those people that I told the product that yeah this is true about this other person and then I want to turn in my friends and say well you know why I'm not there when that anymore in fact I'm taking a whole new view of that you see we have built our lives around our upsets and if you want to start restoring yourself in some of those areas the some cold truths you might have to face which includes the courage to stand there and say either I got it wrong or I'm seeing the error of my ways that takes courage for a human being it takes courage from a human being to not only entrance fact but be vocal about what they're seeing when they look in there so without meeting any of the people who are listening to this today here at Cairo what piece of advice would you say is is universal from here that they could take away from here and then you know be inspired to go out and and by the book and then do the work yeah yeah of course yeah look we live in a world that's fine there is inherently unfair and can at times be incredibly cruel and dangerous the knights surrounding all of us at all times and that is the world and you're going to have to find a way to not only can I make it not world and your version of that will be around you're going to have to find some sort of contentment happiness Charlie accomplishment satisfaction and if you want to have those things in this life if you don't want to be someone who is slowly complaining yourself any a dark cold you're gonna have to realize the you are the generator of every experience you have so therefore you're never up against life you're only ever up against how you see it and if you don't like what you see you should probably change your video and how you do that is by doing the work other Gerry John bishop rewrote the book on believe yourself has a new book called do the

He got absolutely busted in one thousand nine hundred nine he did the same thing. He did a summary. When the real thing came out. It was clear that he had misrepresented. What was in the actual report? Yes. You agrees with you. Pardon me. Judge napolitano. I actually FOX business on my mistake because it must be a channel away from MSNBC. And I literally thought I was it was music is wasn't a polygon. Oh, and he was just going on and on, you know, screw bright. I was like this is good up FOX business. What is great? Eclipse Cheever, let's do it. Let's to black out equals freakout. I mean, the more that is blacked out the less credibility. This will have and that puts the attorney general on a conundrum because much of what he will blackout. He is not at liberty to reveal but where there is wiggle room. If he urged on the side of blacking out, he's going to be embarrassed. Once that's revealed going to store all the lies in his Joe, you're my favorite thing was is all this nervous people at FOX while he was talking. Really? All right. Well, let's let's dance. Hey, did you see the whitest thing ever the FOX dancing? Oh, jesus. That was that was bad. I yes, I agree. With the presented MSNBC when use the pronoun, we first Bernie Sanders. This now, we have we have done a Brazil. We it's total rush twenty one long Royal week. Are we assumed control started, by the way because of Russian them not protecting us from Russia? Don't call me a Bernie, Bashar I'm going to block you immediately joke. Bother emailing me from defending Bernie now because right, okay. My point is we have this is what a primary is. We have opinions and people are allowed to discounted other people. Yes, go ahead. I got shouted out. Because Bernie's he's a millionaire and he simply collecting social security. So what so pay isn't entitled everybody defended him back yet. Whenever who care. And I think it's a good thing that he went on Fox News. Yes. I holy. Disagree with you on that. Totally. I agree with Chris. I had him on this show. Multiple. Okay. Still is wide. I have to say it. I go ahead. Stephanie applaud ADL roof that Chris cheated on Harman multiple times with me. I will just say it. Okay. What was I saying? No, I do think Hillary. I think what first of all. I don't get politically. If you're trying to get the sixty six million people that voted Hillary, don't Hillary bash. If you're if you're Bernie organizer don't yell Hillary at a rally, like don't let it go. Thank you. Let it go. But anyway, no one I think that he did speak very critically of her for making money from a book from Goldman Sachs speeches. So I understand people are touchy. This is like breaking up a fight between two pillow fairs my daughters. Yeah, I get it. I don't care who started the fight. I am about is vote. Blue no matter who and going on Fox News is not being a team player. And let me tell you. Why Fox News is doing and this was on from the bunker yesterday, the fantastic podcast from podcast network. But they were discussing this Jodi and her friends were saying first of all the audience was all Bernie supporters. You have to understand you can disagree. You can think Bernie would win. But understand that Fox News and Russia is still rooting for us to pick Bernie because they they feel he would lose in a landslide. Donnie, going said he'll lose their rooting for us to pick the eighty year old socialist in in you can disagree on that. But I'm just saying the reason they have done Brazil is because she came out and said, oh, yeah. It was rigged against Bernie. It was not rigged against Bernie. He lost. There's acquire by four million votes with. They're trying to do is gin up anything that is Democrats in disarray. And there was some in that town hall. There was some DNC and super delegate bashing. That's what Fox News is interested in that's got kicked off, by the way, the last time number. I remember was a meal caboodle he was like talk. I mean, literally was even back then it was the Hillary Obama thing Obama supporter, then he they were they were basically rooting for that primary to Guam as long as possible. So they could hurt the democ. So both candidates will get bloodied up and not win just stand. They what they stand for is trying to bury the Democratic Party. Here's my point. Is that even back, then I that's what I said. I was like well you'd like that here at Fox News, wouldn't you because he was like, well, don't you think this is going to go on forever? And this is really going to. And I that's what I said I just called him out. And that was it, and then he did a whole monologue about me the next day because he was too scared to say it to your face. Yes. Of course, grazie it's sleepy Joe Biden, I don't have my fears are not right picked up like that regarding birdies a worthy candidates swallow and Buddha judge are considering going on for a town hall and Fox News as well. What the heck the guy said MSNBC this morning the guy with the glasses. I forget his name. He's going on. I'm just saying this is why down Brazil, this is why because they want to do the Democrats in disarray, DNC, bashed, and blah, blah, blah. I mean, I'm just I okay, I'm Trump his evil. Trump hasn't gone after much. Touch. Scared of. He's a word about Trump hates Trump. It's driving. Crazy that Bernie was on Fox News. Yes. I love that. That's a good one. We will see in. The report is also in the Washington Post inside the Russian effort to target Sanders. Supporters and help elect Trump just be aware. What is going on what it's still going on? And that Russia is targeting the top target is Kamala Harris for for the Russian bots because they feel she's the biggest threat the strongest candidate, Justin. Let's pay attention. This time. Help.

Can You Ever Forgive Lee Israel?
"I came across this letter in a collection with the signature of one of my favorites, the writer and wit, Dorothy Parker and the letter is so her eighty three Norma place Hollywood, California, the Joshua Allen told me to write an apologize. I'm doing that. Now while he dresses for Turkey dinner with the boys across the road. I have a hangover that as a real museum piece. I'm sure that I must have said something terrible the year this kind of exertion in the future. I'm thinking of having little letters runoff saying can you ever forgive me? Dr. Except that Dorothy Parker didn't actually write or sign that letter Lee Israel, did her book called can you ever? Forgive me tells the story of her years as a literary con-artist forging letters by all sorts of famous writers, then selling the memoir was just Apted into terrific new film, also called can you ever forgive me. It stars Melissa McCarthy as Israel. This. One line. Here was particularly clever. Don't you think it's wonderful. I love his writing and Dorothy Parker's while caustic wit. Caustic wit is my religion. With the film. Now in theaters I wanted to revisit my conversation with the real Li Israel. She died in two thousand fourteen but I talked to her when her memoir came out in two thousand eight so that isn't by Dorothy Parker at all. Well, there's one line the best line. Can you guess which it is? That's really Dorothy this have hangover that as a real museum piece. So the title of your book is from this purported letter by Dorothy Parker, but it's a real realign. Yes, I imagine Dorothy apologizing her waif-like way for some misdeed, and and I sat down, and I wrote it's in the spirit of kind of Judah spree. So how did you get the idea for this this racket of forging famous people's letters and selling them to dealers started? It was incremental as most things are in life. I I was in the library where I spent most of my time foraging, and they gave me a group. Of of letters. And I thought perhaps even one or two of those could pay for from Mike my kitties tests, and I shoot it. I took it a walked out of the library. And I sold it. I was told by the the woman who bought my letters that which I didn't know anything about the business, but she would pay more for better content. So I went home, and I typed up some better content. And then when you started forging after that instead of stealing what was the first thing before actually, I don't remember where I started. I have a feeling let me think I know it wasn't. I think of the first things I fought would know account letters and you bought not just one but a whole series of antique typewriters on which to do. We'll finally if I had knoll type on one typewriter Dorothy on another and and EDNA Ferber on yet another and Finally I had about six or seven of them in locker I rented on Amsterdam have Aminu looked like a very classy porn shop, but his pawnshop not a porn shop. Not a foreign chef. And it's amazing. How little regulation there is. I mean, for instance, the Noel coward letters, some of them were published in an anthology of his correspondent. That's right recently in highly regarded, well, reviewed book, cool, the letters of no coward. And they were two of my lettuce showed up in that volume. Can we hear one of your letters? Okay. Gotta find it. All right. I'll just this. Dear Kevin Sunday. And at the the letterhead as lays of all sumo shoes. Pardon my French, dear Kevin, I who doesn't exist. I am feeling years younger having lose this morning over perfectly packed snow. There is no substitute for oxygen in the lungs. It seems to release something very like morphine Marlene Marlene as perhaps mentioned to you. When we spoke was here for almost two week. She will never change in Detroit a four service folly, she moans endlessly about the ravages of aging the betrayal of friends the lonely. Of celebrity the Silio crowd addresses each of these problems, if she were the only beautiful and celebrated creature to experience reversals, I intend to have her in my life until one of us crooks, but she is possibly the most June grandmother in the history of our planet. It's a very good thing that I love her. I laughed uproariously at show dog dog arrow yours ever know flea. Israel's version of no account, and they were among the best letters. I think of his well what you don't I'll tell you why? Because he Kurt guess he didn't have to be knoll coward. When he wrote letters. He was writing letters. I had to try hard. I had to be no coward. And so they were lay will cavorted they camped they jumped high jet Jade around. I mean, he didn't write letters like that. I was I was doing it to please dealers and to do an imitation of disturbed sick man who didn't have to try to be no coward. How did you? Did you have to try to get into character? How much did? Immerse yourself in their work. Did you put on a hat like they were support yourself drink? What did you do? I'd never put myself drink because who was it who said John Cheever that old womanising alcoholic said even Sipa Sherry shows in his prose. So I never I never drank. When I ride I just I immersed myself in that wonderful thing that happens grade of people kind of trance the creative transits it's as good as it gets. We'll have more of my interview with Lee Israel in just a minute. But first I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at studio three sixty show. And now back to the podcast now, let's let's rewind before you ever got into this. You were of successful bog refer when I was in my early thirties. I wrote a book about Dorothy Kilgallen, I wrote a book about to Lula Bankhead. I did finally book that wasn't so good about Estee Lauder after the Lord of book, my lights dimmed a bit, and they stopped taking me to Lynch, and and you were on welfare. And and it was it was really rough. It wasn't. It wasn't just that. You were no longer a bestseller. What is rough? I mean, I wasn't eating roots and Niger, but in terms of my life. It was bad. It was I was alone. She was alone. And you and you had a sick cat as well. I had. Sick the romance of the whole thing, and how much did you get for that those? I I think the forty dollars a piece something like that. So it wasn't a lot of money per letter. Forty bucks, forty bucks. Allowed me to take my cat to the vet and find out baby. What was wrong with her? It was enough to keep me as I say finally in in lunch and cigarettes and rent. It was not a lot of money in terms of the letters you forge a part from the marketability of a given author or figure how how did you choose who you wanted to do? I've been thinking about that. I I know that I have certain hide certain criteria which had to be bet they the signature mostly had to be doable, easy, so EDNA, for instance, EDNA Ferber or some EDNA Ferber. She signed her letters with a period. Very simple writing. No, no loops. No swirls. No, no were jumps. Same thing. Knowles was a little harder. Dorothy, Parker had an easy signature. They had to present a challenge to me. They had to have literary epistolary styles that I thought I could duplicate and have fun doing. And I guess those are the criteria fun is interesting to me because they are also nearly all sort of swan. You naughty, people of a certain period and certain certain habits with alcohol and certain age, which meant that if I shook a little in the signature, it wouldn't tell so much, but they would all you. No, one would want to go to the cocktail party with all most of these people all of them, maybe EDNA Ferber. I was gonna say. How many letters did you right now? I think about four hundred really, yeah. You can see you can see as we sit. There's a loosely with copies basically two or three a week for the three years something like that. I guess I didn't you do the math. I did. I did whatever I needed to do them. There was one deal in New Hampshire who would call and say, do you have something Greta Garbo will have you something which George q-car is mentioned. Now, I always satisfied is demands that what did he think I mean, really? And where would you say? Yeah. Maybe I do I have a feeling maybe they may be in the country. You know, like I had a country home. I'll check and I o. I always I wasn't. I not even smart enough to say, oh, no. I couldn't I always was eighty ninety one hundred dollars. Ed was the Noel coward letters that finally done me in because I overdid and because one of the one of his friends who was in the market to buy Noel coward. That is was shown some of mine in new. Full. Well, that know having lived at a time when homosexuality was jailing offense never would've put so many campy funny allusions in his letters and the stuff that's homoerotic etcetera. I got from his his diaries, but Noah would have been much too careful to disclose his. I did what happened. Finally is that one. Once the man friend of Knowles discerned that there was something rotten in Denmark. He told the dealer who told other dealers and finally the well was toxic, and I could no longer sale. And then as soon as the the federal agents showed themselves didn't arrest you mmediately. You went off trying to thinking we're going to get rid of the typewriters destroy the guy rid of everything I could get my hands on scissored everything. I I took the typewriters from the locker one by one and they were very heavy. You know, we're talking nineteen forties. Nineteen fifties at I place them up and down various trash receptacles on Amsterdam avenue. So you were you were. Finally nabbed prosecuted went to trial. You got off pretty easy. I did. Well, I had I got six months house arrest, which is not so easy. If you saw my apartment at the time, not only did you not go to jail. You you have this lovely book. That's come out. That is getting good reviews and kind of kind attention, nobody that I've seen seems to be saying how dare this thief and forger getaway with this. I know, and I'm really, but I I have a knowledge that what I did was was wrong. But I don't I don't feel that in the pit of my stomach the bloggers not being so so kind blinders do, yeah, I know one of them called twit, and I hope he spelled it right? Somebody else called me, an intellectual terrorist. I beat so that happens, but mostly the the community of writers and not so much scholars of writers. And peers of of a liking it and are being very kind to me non-judgmental. I know what I did was for honest, Ana.
