Portugal's Art and Architecture
"Let's start today's travel with rick. Steves in portugal. The architecture and the art of portugal to tell the story of that small country squeezed between spain and the atlantic ocean. You can wander through museums classical and romantic paintings to styles with the largest impact on portuguese painters or you can take in the beautiful. Blue azoulay zhou tiles. That ornament many of portugal's buildings to learn more about portugal's art and architecture. We're joined in our studio by two portuguese guides. Christina duarte and refco christina and raphael. Thanks for joining us. Average abuse here. Rick christina so often to understand the art of a country you need to understand its economy. There's money behind the art. How does money shape the art in the architecture of patrols. When you have money you want be surrounded by beautiful. Things actually is universal. Everybody wants to be surrounded by beautiful things. The thing is that you don't afford it many times and when you afford them you have them in portugal much money then because they have great art from five hundred years ago yes well. It is a combination of two major. Factors the fifteen hundreds with the discovery. Spirit that allowed us to have for the first time money enough for our trade with many places in the world so automatically the royalty had many the nobility had money and the church have many and the coincidence is that your have money and you have also religion behind it so which. She's being major catholic. Contrary in thinking that you want to give your best and you'll beauty to your your glorify gone exactly to glorify god so They were two kinds of ways of spending that money in art. Which was the private and that will be for palaces that nobody will see and to god in churches and i consider that public art so review. All you have this money coming in from the trade in fact the churches were actually nicknamed spice churches. How how does the space tie into the building of churches. Well when portugal arrived to places like india and china and we started to bring all of these new products. Back to portugal. They revolutionized portugal they revolutionized our economy and from there on the society started to change and that is one of the interesting aspect of art is that it reflects the other dimensions of society. So the spices. There were They were a major factor. For example the jeronimos monastery that began to be built precisely with the money that came from the spices. Which bases were these that were so valuable. So you had Pepper you had cinema And many others in christina. Why would people spend so much money for pepper and cinnamon app to preserve no sleaze to preserve refrigeration also to Pigments of any kind for linen. Or tying dying yes. it was something exotic. It was different. People never seen it before. So imagine the first time you are smelling coffee or you're tasting pepper or you're smelling cinema. Imagine the impact that you had imagined how it sparked your imagination so the wealthy people would want this. It would be titillating for them now. You mentioned the monastery at toronto's same just outside of lisbon b. l. e. m. I believe that was men. Welland style architecture. What is men whalen. What we're does that word come from so The men willing style is named after our kingman. Well actually the name was given only in the nineteenth century during the romantic period but kingman while he was one of the most important kings during our age of exploration so he ruled from the time of columbus until fifteen twenty began to rule in fourteen ninety five until the fifteen twenty s in the nineteenth century. They figured out that. We had a several monuments throughout portugal. That shared the same characteristics. So what are the characteristics. If you look at the front of a church what will you see and you go. Oh that's men welland from fifteen twenty so the manor line is late gothic style so you have the basic structure of the gothic and then over that basic structure of the gothic. You have a very specific declaration. You have for example. Maritime mothes you have the strong. Heraldic of manuel specially to miller rece- fear so that the coat of arms of the royal family and then themes from the sea because the money came from the see exactly like the rope the rope a rope with an art. He's a very very important symbol of maryland.
Democrats Weigh ‘Plan B’ to Raise Minimum Wage
"The house is expected to narrowly pass a one point nine trillion dollar covid nineteen relief bill tonight. The plan would enhance an extended. Federal unemployment benefits provide three hundred fifty billion dollars in aid to state and local governments and send fourteen hundred dollar direct checks too many americans included in the house. Bill is a proposal to increase the minimum wage. Our congressional reporter christina peterson says that controversial provision is expected to be cut out when the bill gets to the senate so the big question all along has really been what happens with this bill and the senate and we got part of the answer on thursday night when the senate parliamentarian ruled that a broad increase in the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour would not comply with the chambers rules. So now we're seeing senate. Democrats are looking to see if they can create sort of a plan. Be sort of an alternative way of structuring. A minimum wage increase that would comply with the rules. And what they're looking at is doing something involving taxes like penalizing big companies. That don't pay more than fifteen dollars an hour and creating some incentives for small companies to give them a reason to do that. But it's not yet clear if that will get democrats on board if that will pass muster with the parliamentarian and then it would have to go back to the house where the progressive democrats have said. Well that's not quite as good as just raising. The minimum wage christina says democrats are racing to finish the package before certain types of federal unemployment. Assistance run out on march fourteenth.

"Christine. Say what's up to fire nation and share something that you believe about becoming successful that most people disagree with fire nation. I am so excited to be back with j. l. d. and each one of you and i believe that the hardest part of growing sicker business. You love is allowing it to be easy. Doesn't have to be hard but we were taught that it does right. We're taught to be really good employees and so what our brains to try to keep us safe when we start dreaming about getting not first traction in our businesses. That's what makes it hard not the fact that you're not capable. I mean. sometimes. I ask myself like what is the path of least resistance here. Why am i making this difficult for myself. Like what feels light. Not heavy. And i'll tell you fire nation. I am keeping all the things they feel light and feel easier in my world right now and i'm releasing the things that feel heavy feel hard because it doesn't have be difficult and we're talking about a pretty cool topic how to grow a six figure business six months working ten hours a week and i just want to talk about the realistic -ness of making six figures working ten hours a week. Break that down for us christine. Yes this is all about simplifying like you said what feels light right. You only need two things in order to have the foundation of a six figure business like you need a clear niche and you need an aligned. High ticket offer providing some kind of service whether as a coach as a consultant as a service provider freelancer marketer. Virtual assistant opium social media manager. One of those things. That's all that you need in order to be able to start going out and offering it you need to things. Fire nation a clear niche and that clear niche aligned with a high ticket offer of some former service. That christine was talking about right there. And what's really powerful that for me. Is i see a lot of people today. Saying john like man. I want to launch podcasts. Like interview entrepreneurs of that and listen entrepreneurs on fire fails if i launch it in twenty twenty with my same skills that i had in two thousand twelve i. I won in two thousand twelve because it was a niche. It was void. I fill ditz. And that's why that one got traction. So what is a specific niche. The can be clear and defined for you. Fire nation that. How can you weave in an aligned like that word aligned. High ticket offer of a service that makes sense because right now man. I'm c. n. Christina kinda wants you to chime in on this because i'm seeing a lot of people doing things the wrong way which is like they're working so hard for these like really low ticket offers and just you know having to get like a hundred thousand sometimes even more than that of the sales of these low ticket offers for it even to add up to any kind of meaningful money and like every sale is tough like it a lot times. I found that a low ticket sale because sometimes even be harder than hydrogen sale. And we gotta get into that kind of specifics too. But what do you think about this. I completely agree. I have like a what not to do right. And it is literally what you just said. Don't write a book or start a podcast. I don't download every freebie and try to piece together. A business plan from them. Don't create a bunch of low priced products and start offering them all and also like. Don't tell yourself you don't have enough time because it's almost never time problem. It's a clarity problem. Like if you knew what to do you would just go do it already. Which is why if you know what to do. You can do it in ten hours a

What Is Clubhouse and Do You Need to Be on It?
"Talk about clubhouse before we run out of time I what what are your thoughts on club. I feel like clubhouse right now is is like as we speak february twenty. Twenty one is still in private I wouldn't call a beta on the app store. It's invite only right but they seem to be accelerating the invitations to the point. Now where february. Twenty twenty one sort of is the month where clubhouse went big. Yeah i would agree with that. I mean i would say maybe maybe january No yeah i'm trying to think. When was the lawn on. When when did he do the thing that was like it's over joins twitter moment twenty twenty one today january to february. And i'm sure you know in hindsight you know there'll be more people in march and more people in but it's getting a. Can you describe what clubhouse is and then. Tell me your thoughts about it okay. I'm going to find something. That is certainly find my tweet that i sent about it because stevens noffke was annoyed with me but i stand by it. Okay this was. Someone asked me two weeks ago. Says what does one do with clubhouse. And then i wrote waste time. Not working by listening to other people not working talking about stuff. They claim to be experts end but really aren't while hoping for celebrities to show up. That's pretty it's pretty tart. But but i don't disagree with it. And i say this as someone who i've spent a lot of time on clubhouse i've hosted shows on capelle when that was still a beta feature. I think i joined in april. I'm i'm not above this. Like at all. I'm just saying like when i use it. It is usually because it's the end of the day. And there i see one of the main notifications come in that. You know somebody you're on things interesting is going on or i'm like you know kind of trying to avoid doing actual work and so i tune in the afternoon and then listen to other people who are often doing the same thing and then there is that bit of like. Oh and maybe someone famous will pop in. I don't know i'm being totally honest like for me that that is kind of the appeal. That's not to say that. I don't think there. I think that you can have some real substantive and interesting conversations and and there are some really interesting ways it can be used in the way that it's interest. Graph is both connected but disconnected from twitter. I think is interesting i was. I was in a room last week. End someone's a ten year. Old was briefly in the room before that was deemed. I guess not okay. And and We were asking the the youth some questions about their use of technology. And you know they kind of described it. They were like. Oh it's dischord for adults and that's actually not a bad description to be totally honest like it's kind of scored audio groups but you know audio channels for adults. That's that's not a completely terrible analogy I i'm trying to wrap my head around it. I think there are. I do think they're onto something totally. And i also think i haven't quite had this feeling about something since instagram in two thousand ten like so i was not on the instagram beta n. g. siegler was and he tweeted enough like pictures from it. I definitely kind of it was like okay square pictures filters and then i just say on my other. Podcast dithering with ben thompson. I think the episode that aired this morning. That i remember where i was when i realized instagram out of beta and i could sign up. I was with my family down in disneyworld. And i was on a bus going from I think i even remember which park we're going to. We're going from our hotel to the disney studios park on the little disney transportation. Bus and i was like. Oh it's out of beta quick. Get gruber still available got it start clicking around and like within five minutes because you know all of a sudden we're at disney and it's time to have fun and go on rides and stuff. I was like oh this. Is i get this. This is great. You know now. That is the original instagram where it was. Just you post pictures and you see pictures from the people you follow and you can comment on the pictures And you can apply these filters that re- you know at the time was great feature because don't care cell phone cameras still so crappy. The filters it was perfect and histogram or no hips dramatic amount of it was was awesome so it fit without whole asiatic that was happening with the time that made it. Easy to to apply like they. They didn't take as long as you know. Some of the other filter ops did and it. It really made your photos look better and added remember. When they added the tilt shift feature and amazing. Yeah until fisher. Was this massive deal. Because i was like. Oh my god i can take mr rogers pictures right. Like is how i felt at the time. The hips dramatic took so long. And i don't know. I've never to anybody who could explain it. I don't know if they did it on purpose to to fake. Yeah but it hipster. Matic took so long to apply filters remember talking to somebody at apple about near like. Yeah it makes no sense to even if you're using a bat algorithm it shouldn't take that long and it was like crazy. It was frustrating and instagram. Let you like oh this filter. Nope this filter. Nope and they apply instantly. And then you'd pick one that major picture look better then you'd posted and i was like i got it. I was like oh. This is going to be huge. Just a snap judgment. I feel that way. I feel that way about clubhouse with just with a little less certainty because the thing about instagram was i knew i wanted to use it whereas with gregg house. I'm like i get this. I can see why people really get. I don't think this is for me. Yeah no i kind of agree with you. And i'm like i go back and forth about my feeling like i do. I do think that it's you know. Current valuation is kind of insane. Yes drink the concept has massive legs. Absolutely i think the other difference is is that instagram came out. There were a couple of other Kind of competitor's pick please which was available on both ios and android that dalton caldwell who later did app dot net did and the. Didn't you know work and there were some other kind of attempts at doing similar things but instagram was always wear momentum was and i think it's because they had really strong product direction. I think that always going to be getting the product direction in the attic. Usability was key. It was always product. I don't always product. I clubhouse one of those things were not that i don't think we're i wonder if it's going to be more like an instagram stories. Saying we're not as a staff staffed stories. Thanks but you see where. I'm going with this where it's a great idea but it could be potentially co-opted and done better by someone else. Like i feel like twitter spaces. Could you know. Beat it in a way that you know. No one else even had a chance against instagram. Even though instagram was ios only until it was acquired by facebook like no one else even had a chance at sucks all the oxygen out of the room Because it was it was the best. Might i feel like the concept of clubhouse has a lot of legs just don't know of clubhouse it's going to be the thing or if it'll be whatever mark cuban. He thinks he's doing or if it'll be twitter spaces. I don't think it'll be facebook. Facebook single fall flat on. Its face but i do feel like twitter spaces could potentially you know Hold the the instagram move and like make their version of stories way more successful even though it's a blatant copy it's it's better

What Women Think About Valentine's Day
"Men tend to look at valentine's day as a second birthday for women. I mean we know there were supposed to use the date to focus on intimacy in closeness but a lot of us think that it's also an obligation to make her look good in front of her friend co workers as well because you don't send flowers to her job if you want to wait and see what happens if you do that. And i'm sure there are a lot of guys who are thankful that ladies are working from home after valentine's day this year at least a lot of them are as opposed to previous years. However that's kind of our mindset towards the holiday. So eric i'll start with you. I be real. Is valentine's day holiday for women i mean. Do you feel like it's your queen for a day type of holiday for you for me particularly. I've never really been big on valentine's day because the men in my life have not been the kind of men who were who put a lot of thought into it they just go into walgreen's get some candy. Get a teddy bear in bringing home like millions of women all over the world. Have this same teddy bear insane candy and really didn't put thought into it because if you did you would know. I don't even like teddy bears so it's not a big day for me. What kaya what do you think about. It is valentine's day just a holiday for women. Yeah it is supposed to be for the lovers of course but Absolutely as it was before the levers and funny enough. My little brother's birthday is on valentine's day. So i have always celebrated him on his day of birth and barnsley levers though i feel like you're supposed to do something sweet to celebrate the love between the two of year speak aren't so christina. I mean what do you think about. Valentine's day is it just a holiday for Guys are included as well. I'll never bill wants to think that is a a woman's holiday like i know that my grandfather used to come in and he will make sure that his ladies were taking care of with their box of candy and their roses but me. Al always been the person to try to find something that he liked. I'll be snooping around asking questions. Favorite color Which liking this like. That's always been my thought on it. And then i was introduced at sixteen to The holiday is in october the sweetest day and somebody told me they was like. That's the valentine's day for men but my thought process nobel's valentine's day is for everybody. Everyone should be appreciated at some point. I think it is a anniversary For a period of which refer love. I liked it like that all right. So let's talk about your level of expectation may depend on how long you've been in a relationship with someone so kaya. Let's say you've been in a relationship with someone for about three to six months. What are your expectations of him when it comes to what he does for you on valentine's man funny because this is kinda my situation now I honestly did not have any expectations. I always just kind of forget. I usually work as it'd be like the first year. I'm not working on wednesday in a long time. So i mean just appreciation. I would say like a small token something we. If i've been with three to six months i say like cute little chocolate figure out. What type of candies i like. Because it's new. It's fresh yard by all means. Do your thing i would expect. I mean honestly not very much. I would just be so appreciative that someone thought of me. You know three to six months in that they wanna get such a very sweet. So now and christina. What have you been in a relationship for over a year to the expectations. Change for me. I'm not gonna speak for everyone but for me. Naar not really. I am a sentimental person. My love language is words of affirmation followed by x. of service. So if you can remember you know some things over the course of the year. That i may have mentioned does something a little sweet. That means the most to me. Up where eric what. If you're married. I mean our expectations lower. Because you can only do so much for the same person year after year or does he get higher. Because you expect more creativity it'd be involved. Says he now knows everything that makes you tick. I think is just appears. Don't couple and you know what they've agreed on In their marriage is valentine's a big day to you all every year. If it's not the no big deal But i do think it should come with some kind of thought If you've been with somebody that long period of time you should know what they like and do a little surprise for me. Things like planning a night out planning a trip on cooking dinner. Experiences are more important to me than actually buying something christina. That you for a second.

"Prayer for when you're feeling weak by christina fox that is why for christ's sake i delight in weaknesses in insults in hardships in persecutions in difficulties for when i am weak then i am strong. Second corinthians twelve seven through ten. I hate weakness. I don't like to feel inadequate or incapable. I don't like being dependent on others. I don't like not knowing what's going to happen. I don't like feeling helpless in the face of a trial. I don't like feeling spent an overwhelmed. I don't like it when i'm physically. Weak emotionally weak mentally weak or spiritually. weak dimension. I don't like being weak. But ironically god's word looks at my weaknesses differently. It's part of the prerequisite for coming to christ. Jesus said in luke five thirty one three to those who are well have no need of physician but those who are sick. I have not come to call the righteous but centers to repentance. Our weakness is no match for christ. It's not an obstacle. he has to overcome. he doesn't look at us and bemoan the fact. He's not been given the cream of the crop rather he laughs at weakness and says look what i can do with it if the reality of your own weaknesses mocking you today. Go to god and prayer plead with the lord about it and rests in. His power made perfect in weakness. This prayer is for you and me. Dear father i come to you today feeling so we can helpless. There are many things on my plate so many worries so many uncertainties so many things. That just can't do every time i think about what lies ahead of me. I feel overwhelmed. When i consider carrying this burden for days on end i feel like i just might drown. Everything seems impossible. You said to come to you with my burdens. The bible says you are our rock and our fortress who are all knowing all powerful. You know the burden that i bear. You are not surprised by them. In fact he's allowed them into my life. I may not know the purpose for them. But i do know that i can trust your goodness. You are always faithful to do what is best for me. You care most about my holiness even above my immediate happiness. I ask that you remove this burden for me. Take away my weakness but ultimately i desire most of all that your will be done. I confess that hate this weakness in me. I don't like not knowing what to do. I don't like being incapable and insufficient. Forgive me for wanting to be sufficient in myself. Forgive me for wanting to be in control. Forgive me for complaining grumbling. Forgive me for doubting your love for me and forgive me for not being willing to trust and rely on you and your grace when i look into the future and see. My weakness helped me to trust you. May i like paul embrace my weakness so that you can be my strength. May you work through my weakness to change me. May glorify you my weakness looking away for myself and to the wonders of your amazing love through christ grant meet gospel joy even in the midst of this struggle. It's because of jesus. And through. Jesus that i can pray.

"The fallout from the britney. Spears documentary keeps getting uglier. Justin timberlake was under fire but he is not the only one. Diane sawyer is feeling the heat as well documentary framing brittany featured. Some of diane's exclusive interview with the star from two thousand. Three and fans are outraged. They're saying. Dan owes an apology for grilling her about justin. And whether she's a bad role model for young girls. Here's a clip. He's going on television. Pretty much said you broke his heart. You did something that caused him so much pain so much suffering. What did you do. Britney spears has upset a lot of mothers in this country starting with the wife of the governor of maryland. Really if i had an opportunity to to shoot britney spears. I think i would. Oh that's that's really trying to test a lot of people was pretty wide goodness all right. So there's so much to this interview in fact like after that whole terrible quote from the governor that said i could shoot britney spears diane sawyer to that was something along the lines of well. You've really you know. Made it very hard for a lot of mothers. Wasn't that bad is governor's wife. That's who needs apologize her up unless she's not here or anything like that. But that's what needs to apologize. Get up off. Diane's she's a reporter. She was at a man's world back there. She had to be tough and nobody asked him barbara. Walters apologize but nothing. I'm just i'm done. She had to be tough. 'cause he was week we wouldn't even know her name. Right now feels different. So say you're part because i like when this talk all that i looked up the interview and listen. I'm going to say it's a reflection of the times. It's how we attacked women at that time. It just the things that diane was allowed to say to britney without even a second glance is absolutely appalling. It would never happen in two thousand twenty one. I don't believe she pulled out. Magazine articles Showing brittany and about how she was sexy. And all these things brittany said jaylo does it. Christina aguilera does it. Is it a big deal. Because will you have the connection with the. It's all making her feel guilty on top of that. This is another question. She asked this twenty one year old. She said but you said. I've only slept with one person in my whole life two years into my relationship with justin and yet he's left the impression that you weren't faithful that you betrayed the relationship she's enquiring. How many people britney has slept with questioning her on her virginity on on her sexual relations. That is insanely inappropriate. What she was grown twenty one twenty two. She was grown. She gets grown questions asked at the time she was sixteen. That i would say okay. You a little rough. But she's twenty one years old. You just talked to my nieces. That's what you've been doing your. Sat results long doesn't matter ranger national television. You're asking this young girl to to tell you. All of our sexual secrets and intimate affairs of a relationship overly scrutinized at that time anyways everything she did. This is cobbled reporter year to get the information. It is up to you to answer. Not her publicist should advisor this. You get out of the hard question ooh brennan. Actually i will say handles herself really well. But i think diane sawyer i promise you i truly believe diane sawyer looks back at that interview and cringes bring something. Go through saying if i could do this over again. I would have. Maybe still grilled her but in a much more appropriate way. I think for diane sawyer. Look we have to remember. This was diane's thing. John was known as if you're a celebrity. And you're in hot water. You go sit with diane. Do the tough interview and if you get through it your career is back. Don't forget this is in two thousand. And three a year. After diana whitney houston in she spent two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year on crack. So you gregory speier's just gonna walk into diane sawyer interview and not be hit with the hard questions. It's a little bit much. It's like somebody saying. Oh i didn't know that howard stern was going to ask me about my sex life. I didn't know my family businesses. We're going to be out of mari povich. It's the town though. It's the town that diane takes with britney. Is it just brittany or does he take it with everyone that i can say. We have an we you. She asked whitney straights her face. Do you spend two hundred thousand dollars. We also cracked that one. I want you to feel guilty for your sex life. I want you to feel guilty for your sexual the way you dress. I want you to feel guilty for your responsibility to be this perfect positive as we received it. I don't think she meant that. I think she was just doing a job. That no one else would do. Because i don't know if i would ask brittany that. I don't think i'm that type of person that i can really ask the hard questions if somebody wants to be an open book. They can't be listening wearing the world now of reality. Television people talked about sex they. They'll they'll open the the open it up. They tell it on their own but back then especially a young girl like that to put the pressure on her to try to be the. We still put the pressure on people stars to be the perfect examples especially when they started like disney princess. And then try to move on to something older but she was twenty one at this point at this point when miley cyrus still got like a big backlash whenever she tried to become more sexualize. However we have let it

Anyone else in the world playing the game can wander into your meetings and shoot you and the button you press the sit down as the same button used strangle someone. Sorry Tim. Schwartz said the response of meeting on Video Games has been overwhelming as people discover that they can quote. Hang out with their friends and go for walks together. End Quote again. We would like to just point out. That's a virtual walk so no actual physical activity still desperate times call for desperate measures and the fact that you can have your meetings. A fictional world surrounded by fictional animals and go on fictional walks does seem like a much better option than boring gold. Zoo where the most exciting thing that could happen. Is If you're meeting get zoom Bob Strangers Genitalia. Up Stages Tim in accounting picking his nose.

Not My job Christina. College is a space pioneer. She holds the record for the longest time. A woman has been an orbit and she was part of the first three all women spacewalks which coincidentally were also the first base walks in which one of the astronauts did not explain to the other. Something that person already knew Christina. Cook Welcome to wait wait. Don't tell me how great debate there. It's great to be with you now. You did in fact set a bunch of Records. You did the first half of the first all woman spacewalk and you also set the record for a woman Staying in space right. Yeah that's correct or android. Twenty eight days three hundred twenty eight days and you came back just in February yet the beginning of February right so about your timing did you really nailed it. It occurs to me though that as unlucky as your timing might be in coming back to the planet you probably are the greatest living expert along with one or two other astronauts with how to survive for a long time being stuck in the same place. So do you have any tips for us? The rest of us were new to this particular challenge. You know I definitely got through with a lot of You know kind of mental strategies focusing on what you have rather than what you don't have and you know all the things the unique things that you're going to be missing one day but I think in the end I've sort of learned since I've been back that the actual way to get through it is just to inherently be a homebody. Yeah that turns out to be the best way to get through an astronaut and during stay at home on earth do so. Where are you now your home at? Houston who are you quarantining with My husband and our dog. Oh Wow and this. You're away from your husband for almost a year and now you're stuck inside with him. Twenty four seven. That's that's an interesting transition. And then of course the year and training before my flight whereas living in Russia almost constantly so yeah about two years apart to twenty four seven together. It has been interesting. It's good good opportunity to you. Know reintegrate and your home life and and With people you love so I feel like I want relationship advice from you just because of that but also because like. I don't know if you've been in space. You know what it's like to be with something like unwelcoming and cold and distant and I could use the well. We try to stay out of the. Nfl vacuous vacuum part. We try to stay in the habitable areas as much as we can so from that I was reading about the fact that when they did the first astronaut the first space program they actually put some women through the same kind of tests and they found out that women were better able to handle the stress associated with spaceflight than men. Do you think that the mercury thirteen? Yeah I've read a lot about those women they're some of my heroes and You know I I would say that I. I didn't notice any differences up there. Guess Fly with men and women and I think everyone handles it about the same. I will tell you where we get asked a lot where things are up there to not really. I'm sorry I didn't want to indulge in any terrible types but I mean is it like at my house where I don't know where anything is it. My wife knows where everything is absolutely like that and I did get a call from my husband asking him where things were in our house in Houston and usually knew the answer. So you're you're in space for almost a year and he still calling me because he can't find his car keys printer. Paper was a big one. Right away yeah wow you. Did you participated in the first of all as all women? Both women's spacewalker hadn't been done before and famously You tried it. But it didn't work because they didn't have a spacesuit that fit one of you correctly is that right yes It it but it was kind of not the best sides ever and we decided it'd be better to to do it with Someone who had a space that was Kinda just the right bit. How would we? You went all the way out there and they gave you the wrong size outfit. Also shopping is even hard. When you're an astronaut this is not making me feel good as a woman had actually get a spacesuit just to get some pockets and in the pants how one thing I've learned about Nasr's they check and double check everything. It's all about checklists and safety precautions. How could they send up the wrong size spacesuit for your space walk well all the spaces are already up there so it was just a matter of configuring it kind of getting it ready and that times always of the essence there you know? And there's there's never enough time to do everything that you WANNA do. So unfortunately yeah just didn't get configured in time been with just wasn't a question of Christina. What was the most beautiful thing you saw? I know the the Blue Ball of earth. Definitely the earth is beautiful. Some of my favorite scenes were one looking down at my home That's an incredible thing just to see where you're from and where you live kind of on that backdrop of the universe and then the other for me was seen the northern lights and the southern lights on the earth from above. I used to work in Antarctica so I saw Tun from below and so just to see that kind of on a planetary scale was pretty amazing. Did you ever look out and go? What is that? I don't like is the guys come here. Do you ever have that one of those moments. I know sadly I'm GONNA have to come up with a better story for that but no nothing was out the window Kristina Cook.

Yeah I think a lot of people Assume that I'm sort of Joan from madman that I that maybe I'm a bit more stern or a little bit more uptight or maybe a little more put together a mess like I was there but gene you know dropping things on the floor girl I'm not nearly as sort of put together. And maybe prissy as I think people think maybe I think so. Maybe I'm not well. It's kind of a famous story. Now that basically the agency that was representing you said Madman what. We're not WANNA representative. You're doing that. Show what is it? Amc Show AMC did not have a show. There was no breaking bad at that point there was. There is nothing and we were show. They used to play old movies So they were like this. This show's not going to get picked up. And this shows not gonNA pay anything and it's period show. It's going to be super expensive to make no one's GonNa WanNa make the show it's laborious and you know wordy and And I was like all my favorite. I love laborious because it was it was about characters. And so yeah. That's scary as an actor. Though to have an agency say okay. Go and do it. But we don't want to represent you. It was humiliating. It was awful. It's very embarrassing to be working with people who all of a sudden go. Yeah we're just not interest like we don't think what you're doing is good enough to represent you. You're not worth their time. It's it's awful. They should be embarrassed. Well you know I hope they were and I hope you haven't spoken to and I you know I just haven't seen her because she's no longer an agent but I liked her as a person and I have no hard feelings. There's all sorts of stories in this town. You know what I got to work on that show for ten years and I made the right choice. That's it that's I got another agent. You just go and get another one there. It is people out there who are wondering what you do. Just go get you know you can get another age. Yeah well you good girls to do that. But I'm looking at you and I'm thinking where did the start last time you were here? I don't think I ever asked what it was when you were a kid because I know that you lived in different places when you were growing up. Yeah did you always have this feeling? This was what you wanted to do was at well I started. Dancing was started dancing at a young age. I clearly liked to perform and when we moved twin falls Idaho. I was in third grade and my mom had my brother and I dish for a local community theater. Children's group called jump company junior musical playhouse and she just thought it was. She was just trying to help us make friends 'cause moving from town to town and she she didn't want us to necessarily get stuck in the cliques. At school she she liked the idea of it being community and my mom always liked to do theatre in college and high school so We went and auditioned to be in the best Christmas pageant ever and You know then all of a sudden I was on stage in musicals and doing bye bye Birdie and the chorus in the background and I was like this is. This is where it's at this. This is the most fun I'm ever going to have and I just continued to do it and I just found so much joy and at and singing and dancing and doing the whole thing that I just kept kept going but when you moved again you will go into Virginia to and we went to Virginia after Idaho so when I went to Virginia was the first time that I could take Acting classes in high school as a option. You know as an elective course so my brother. Yeah my brother had been in theater or drama class and so I was so excited because now I was like I can like start to really study. Be Real actress and And I went in and I remember some of the senior students. I was a freshman and they were like. Oh you're really serious about acting and I was like. Oh yeah definitely when I you know and I got a lead in in the in the school play and I was the new kid and I was a freshman and everyone was like ooh fresh. Br One I think it was a blithe spirit. Oh Yeah Ghost. A ghost ghost perfect thing. I had read that. You were bullied at the time when you were going to school in Virginia. Yeah when I first showed up. I was kind of Quirky Weird kid from Idaho that like listen to like new wave music but wore birkenstocks. And like like I. I just like no one could figure out what my story was and I I just. There weren't sort of categories of people where where I went to school in Idaho. You were a kid and I just happened to have like sort of my mom would help me make clothes and I would see something a magazine and we would make some weird snakeskin pants and I just I didn't realize it was sort of odd Until I got to Virginia and everyone was like. Oh you're weird. Trust me here weird and I was like maybe I am and and I immediately went into drama class. Which of course alienates you in some high schools already. Sadly put you with other alienated. And they're the best big creative Weirdos together with the rest of them yes so you know as the years went by then I sort of went through my sort of rock and roll punk goth all that stuff and and just celebrated being different. Didn't they're still? I'm still one hundred percents. People are like. Oh it's so funny that you were. I'm like I am still God. I don't let this Rambo sweater fairly lax eye. Shadow is a black lipstick. Saying yes I will do that. Let's have her. That Goth is bring her temper. Gabby Gabi really. She's the she's in there. You go just vocally in there to do that. Yeah goodness so. Ventriloquist's doll friends. That's weird and God. I'm GonNa Guess that maybe you had I did. I don't know that is risk for me to bring that up. What do you take me for? I went into record my first session and they had some rudimentary Animation and like. Here's your character and of course you kind of looks like me and hear her buddies. I was like Oh wait. I actually have one of those. That's released strange coincidental and I happened to hang out at antique stores. All the time and go antiquing so this environment. That might Gabby Gabby was almost like it. Came out of my own creation. It was exciting to see all right. Well we have questions from social media. Okay so if you talk on twitter when you say social media I know what you know it's Rachel says how will Christina described the new season of good girls in three words. That's good you've given me like three sentences.
"christina" Discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"I hope everybody. I'm Peter Travers. In welcome to popcorn where we tell you what is popping in pop culture and. I know you're all excited to know that good girls is back for season. Three on NBC. And it's good luck to have one of the stars of Chuck Andrex. It's great to see you again. Nice to see you. Thanks for having me season three. So what kind of trouble are you women in this time? I'm a lot more. I some reason I root for these women. I know there are up to no good. But they're fun and they're relatable so people kind of have their back there like I'd do it. How do you know? And they've got this real inner it's it's the camaraderie with these women. It's just fun to watch them. Make these horrible mistakes. Is that how you felt when you were first? Approached about doing the series. You know when you when you come from a show that you've been on for almost a decade your next your next choice you you have one follow madman. Well you gotta think something. I would really want to do every day because I may be doing it for ten years. I know what that's like. You know so. You really want to choose something that you could imagine doing. And I thought I want to work with these women and I want to go on this wild caper. It just seemed like such a laugh and so weird and different and it's also very intense so I do you know I didn't sort of consider like a well. I'm going to be incredibly stressed out every day and this high anxiety level and the stakes are really high. Of course you have to play all that you know so. It's kind of exhausting. But what if and now? I'm assuming that you and men ready get along really well. We did from the beginning we did. I knew may casually we had done some Animated things together so met each other through that I had never met Reta I in fact called. May and I said you know I'm thinking about doing this. Show I I hear. You're doing it what he thinks she's like. I think it's going to be the best thing ever and we just like hit it off like house on fire. When we all met and here we are three seasons. And that's we know each other so well we can order lunch for each other in the other person's around we're like no no no. Do not put tomatoes on reticent. Please send it back. We can't deal with it We all know each other and we and we know how we react to things and we sort take care of each other well. It sounds like you know I'm making light of it but to be on a series where you work long days. Yeah so you. It's good if you get along. It's amazing and because we are playing these really stressful intense scenes to have people that you love so dearly to laugh inbetween takes you know. Make the day lighter. It just changes everything. 'cause you're right we're there for fourteen hours a day and and You know it's it's nice to have like comfort him between and just get pissed off together and be happy when something is really making you angry. Oh Yeah we've got each other's back if something's upsetting the other. Were like yeah. Yeah what she said. Yeah we're team because we're scary you know and you could. You could do that. You know your director and Toy Story. Four where you were doing the voice of. Gabby Gabby I read a quote from Him Josh. Cooling where he said There's the thing about Cristina where she has this very sweet affect and an a sweet voice and then she can turn on a dime and being medicine and cold. We're just that calm and we did have fun playing with that. I mean the sweeter the croupier right. I don't know I. I ended up playing a lot of characters that have that dichotomy that they have come across as an innocent. But there's this underlying thing to drive to firefly. I think it started with firefly's the first time I had a character like that. And maybe maybe maybe one lead to another. Maybe when they opened a script they thought now. Who can do this? You Know Christina Hendricks this are doing on firefly so maybe one led to the other. Because I don't think I'm duplicitous. That's my own personality. Christina can do cold and creepy short she can go to increase drake's he's ready to do it for those people that are having caught up yet or just beginning to catch up with good girls. Who were you playing describe this? I play your typical midwestern. Mother middle class hardworking organized but found herself sort of on autopilot and lost maybe sight of her dreams or what her needs were and each cheating on her she found her husband is cheating on her lured that Matt Lillard just so great And then my sister who's a single mother is struggling to keep her child protected and safe and in school and my best friend has a daughter with an illness. And so we all find ourselves in this place where we need money to sort of take care of our families and keep roofs over their head and we. We decided that the best logical solution is to rob a grocery store. And we'll go and get the money Jill with all of our problems and go on our on our way But of course one thing leads to another and we fall into life of crime and it's a quirky show. I mean that's what I would say to people who haven't seen it yet is just because it's on a network. Don't assume certain things about it. It is Quirky and weird and fun and has great music and it's dark and it's an interesting tone that you haven't seen before and I. I really think it's unique but store the grocery store that the three of you rob a fine at frugal which I'm obsessed and I want to start a chain of fine frugal because the crux of that which I think I can give away because well it was three seasons ago. Is that when you think you're GonNa rob to get some extra money to take care of the problems that there's like a half a million dollars there for long to a criminal element in that world. We think we're going to go in and get about fifteen thousand dollars and we come out with a half a million dollars and this becomes a much larger crime than we ever anticipated. And of course it's tied to a whole gang and a whole crime ring that we we just thought it was a grocery store. We didn't realize so else was laundering. Their money there and they find us and now we are sort of indebted to them and you know tied into this this much more dangerous which never stops never stops and the guys that really have that and real yes. So what is there in this character Beth in you? What do you bring them yourself to playing? Well I know you shop at finding the main thing.
