"claire" Discussed on Design Matters with Debbie Millman
"Just something about Claire. Danes. That makes her hard not to watch and we've been watching for a long time. A teenager in the nineteen ninety, she played Angela Chase in the much loved. But short-lived television show my so called life after many film and theatre roles she starred in the much loved long running series homeland which won her a few emmy awards for outstanding lead actress homeland just wrapped up after its eighth and final season and you can't help but wonder what this actor will do next to compel us to watch her again Claire Danes Welcome to design matters. Thank you so much I'm thrilled to be here. Thank you, Claire I understand for a time you owned a hula-hoop made by artist Jean Michel Basquiat. Did you come to have that. I've. been looking forward to this question Yeah. That is true. Hot Pink with white stripes all around it. My parents owned actually still own with another couple a loft on crosby street and Basquiat was a renter I was about four years old at the time. And I do remember seeing him in the elevator and he was very charming. And some grownups really register with kids. You know they're like on the plane and I recognize that he was one of those people and yeah he eventually moved out and left a few objects hot pink hula-hoop being one of them. So you grow up in your parents artist's loft obviously in this same building with John Michel Basquiat, Yup your debt studied engineering and biology at Brown University, and then transferred to the Rhode Island School of design in the nineteen sixties where he met your mother did they were generally WanNa be designers? Yeah. So my mom was a textile designer. She studied textiles at wristy and was one for ten years might one of my first memories was watching her paint an endless series of flowers while watching or more listening to all my children. And and my dad was a photographer and he had built a darkroom in our loft. And that's what they did at the start of their their young lives They went to the bowery I after graduating from his D. and. Then eventually moved to so but yeah, and then they did other things My I have a older brother Asia seven years older, and then when I came around I, think it was time to make some more money really, and my dad was a contractor became contractor a business called overall construction good name and where the ever is degraded. Definitely he is Pun stor. And my mom ran a toddler school and Daycare Center, I saw two different names for your mom's toddler school, the Crosby street toddlers group and the crayons street toddlers tribe. So I think I should clarify for the record which was the actual may was much much easier to say and more literate of it was crosby kids. Because it. Yeah and Yeah there were six kids in the morning and six kids in the afternoon and she started that when I was about four years old, she taught one and two year olds and she ended when I became this like actor teenager person. But yeah, it was a funny way to live. Is it? You trampoline a trapeze installed over the kitchen table in his swing suspended from the living room ceiling in the apartment? Yes. That's all true. But that was all pre nursery school. Life, in the in the Danes households. The great things about a love is that you have this you know uninterrupted flat plane. Just expanse of of wood floors. So it was an ideal roller rink and guess my parents really believed in fun and then I had to share that space with other little humans, which was what was it like for you to share your home with a classroom full of toddlers in the morning and in the afternoon. You know. It was tough I've I guess, I, struggled with feelings of jealousy. For sure but I adapted and they were amusing and you know I encountered them every. So often now as fellow middle aged people and it's always a little startling, I understand that Lena Dunham was actually rejected. When she To be part of the toddlers. And my mom. My mom was amazing. She was really excellent what she did and There was a long list of people who were eager to send their kids there and and Yeah Lena when I met Lena years ago and that was like the first thing she told me was that her mother was still a little annoyed. I it was not personal I. Know that to be true I know I. Do I mean I do know a lot of nursery rhymes now? Just helpful having your own young boys? Yes that's right. I understand that you discovered the joy of dissimulation when you were three years old when not wanting to actually taken up you pretended that you were sleeping by mimicking some of your mother's twitches and body movements while she was sleeping, how did you figure out how to do that with your own body and to pretend that sort of seamlessly I think it's just a natural human impulse and instinct to to mimic to observe and to imitate I. Don't know why that's the case I'm sure it's served US evolution in evolutionary terms but look I mean kids are taking in so much I I'm just shocked by. How perceptive and sensitive might now toddler Rohan is, for example, but Cyrus was the same way. It's almost like the younger they are the more tuned in they are to every detail. I do remember that experience. It really was like I think the first time I. Stumbled upon something like acting and I. Was Delighted by the experience of it and the challenge of and it still at the root of what I do now. It seems like you are rather headstrong from the very beginning of your life and at five years old while singing and dancing on your parents bed you sell Madonna on television and suddenly realized that performing could be a job. What can be the sense that Madonna was actually working that it was her job. That was another epiphany this moment where I connected an action to a vocation. Even at that age, even at five people will ask you like, what do you WanNa be when you grow up you know I guess. I knew that was something to consider and. I don't know I just saw stars. I was just so inspired..

"Now not only do you have to join the Federal Society, which is the Republican Club for people who WanNa, be federal judges, but you've got to really try to figure out ways in your opinions to signal. That you are on board with some of the the extreme positions that the republican system. So we wouldn't have ever gotten Cali- if filibuster hadn't been done away with. Presidents would have to nominate people like Merrick. Garland I. Mean that's a good example Obama nominate Mary Garland because he believed he could get support from both sides. that. He could get the sixty votes and our supreme court has been full of people like that. Who have really honestly look at each issue without a political winds I think that's gone now I think the the courts have now become just as political as congressional. Positions in even with a lifetime appointments I think you know you've got a really now prove your fees that your political in terms of getting the partisan support where that's all you need. Now you just need the party you picked before you and you can be a federal judge. So clear. Let's We're just focused on kind of an optimistic election outcome Let's talk about a less optimistic outcome in a scenario where Biden doesn't win we don't win back Senate and I think it's really important for people to understand in most states, you know Biden's performance and the performance of Santa cannot speak closely tied. Now we saw Missouri I mean you dramatically outperformed US In two, thousand, twelve when when Barack Obama was running for reelection. Jason. Candidate in sixteen you but most of these races will be with a couple of points what would happen over the next nine weeks that would cause and you know I don't like you. I don't really believe in polls I consume them but they're pretty durable Biden's got a pretty significant lead in battleground states. Of the Senate Raises Look Pretty strong right now or at least competitive what would happen over the next nine weeks for this to fall apart and basically the world in our democracy and so the stakes are enormous and when and this isn't just to keep people working like. A good campaign spends a lot of time thinking about what could go wrong and not play defensively to your point earlier. To to have an offensive strategy mitigate against it well. I think we need to keep an eye on. What's happening in our country in terms of racial awakening. It could get a volatile. Depending on the decision and Brianna Taylor charging. And depending on the decision on the charging. In the Blake case. You could see the kind of. Civil. Unrest that plays into the hands of Donald Trump. And that's the thing that worries me most These protests are driven by the purest of emotions. a deep deepen desperate desire. For people to be treated equally in our system of justice and it is one I am completely in sync with. Watching like Ferguson in watching what has happened in other cities across this country. The. Peaceful protests by and large are occurring before the sun goes down. And after the sun goes down. There are some real shit bums that show up. On both sides in some of them are far right instigators who are trying to. Do this unrest in cause conflict whether it's through gunfire or fires or looting. you know they have caught right wing extremists doing this stuff. So there are A. Variety of different folks that are trying to promote this. View of America is one that is quote unquote on fire. So that's the things that worry me is you know in part of that worry comes, from David, you know I was a prosecutor for many years and I know the law in these areas. And the law in these areas are are complicated. You know And it is I. Think sometimes harder than people realize to get to proof beyond a reasonable doubt. On in police involved altercations, clearly George Floyd was an open and shut case because he was not a danger to anyone when they killed them, they murdered. With that police officers needle, his neck are he was handcuffed and on the ground. The others are a little more complicated. And so it just worries me and if I didn't know the law, so well, it wouldn't worry me so much but I understand the law as it relates to reasonable fear when it comes to police officer and That's not saying that there is not racial bias in what happened in these cases would they ever have done that to a white suspect that was ignoring their commands as it relates to a blake being shot seven times in the back I don't believe they would. Yeah. So the fact that they used that force I think is in fact racial. would they have been entitled to use that force for a white person as well as a black person while we don't know all the facts yet? And but the standard is the police officer in reasonable fear. And That's that's tough beyond a reasonable doubt to a jury of twelve people. So it it is I. I'm on pins and needles about these decisions. I, think they will both be charged in some way in I think that will help but if for any reason Police officers are somehow. Given. A clean bill of health over these two incidents then I worried yeah. Well, I think the we all need to prepare for that and and try, and if in fact I I worry about Kentucky I mean the Kentucky Attorney General's spoke at the RNC. He's now talked about as a potential national candidate You know I hope I'm wrong but I think we need to plan for no charges filed either right? Before. That first presidential debate or right after, and you know to make sure that we starting with Joe Biden and his campaign but everybody's ready for that and to to basically because I. do think that that is going to cause the country to be in great up people. The other thing clear that concerns me and you know when you were running for office, obviously a candidates number one job is to. Deliver a message in articulate why they're running for the position they're running for and dwell and debates in. You know raise the resources but you were deeply involved in organization and obviously in a pandemic, just the exercise of voting is more complicated now and I'm convinced no matter what happens over the next two months you know Brianna Taylor as the economy, the debates, Joe. Biden is going to enter election period with enough support amongst registered voters to win the election and even those that intend to vote very different than those that you know Arkansas vote. But you know we saw June a bunch of ballots get spoiled We now saw report this week that there was over a million ballots the post office sent out late in the primaries in June. So just organizationally, what do we have to do in what advice do you have to make sure that the number of people who intend to vote for Joe.

"And also just get her sense. So I think you're really enjoyed this. Conversation with Senator Claire mccaskill. Senator Claire mccaskill. Welcome to campaign cue. Thank you David Platt. It's great to be with you. Last time I saw you we're on this set of MSNBC AND NBC New York. Right? It seems like that was years ago on Super Tuesday. If I recall, that's right that does seem like eons ago when we actually Hang out together and Politics both on and off microphone. Well, that was the night we. For the most part New Democratic nominee is so I want to start with the presidential race. I got a lot of things I'm really excited to talk to you about. So listen Missouri's changed through the years. It used to be a core battleground You know your race was closed in eighteen Jason Candor almost one in sixteen while trump was winning the state comfortably. But Missouri is very similar You think about composition to a lot of battleground states I think it's got the same share the white population. As Wisconsin, you have to figure out a way to drive turn out amongst African Americans and Latinos. Really now maximize suburbs but do well enough and exuberant in rural areas which is always a strength of your. So I'm just curious as you look at the presidential race right now. What makes you optimistic about putting together that winning coalition for Joe Biden and where do you think there's still work to be done? Well, I think you have to start with an important premise. It's very hard for some of my dear friends that are from very blue states to understand in that is people who decide presidential elections are generally not on the far right or the far left me we understand the basic important. Driving Force of winning in terms of getting the base out. But. Even if.

Claire Ratinon on growing food in small spaces
"Worked in lots of different settings and so you've got rich a rich tapestry of things to draw on for this book I must say though going back to tomorrow toes whenever I talk to anyone who sort of has has a a balcony or patio and grown anything for they always start with tomato it with that. People always think that tomatoes are I mean. I you know having say of a few years of growing tomatoes under our belts. You think every year for me anyway every year and I think I know what I'm doing with tomatoes but every year something goes wrong different way. Then not the easiest things I just I guess it's something they're very. Visual people understand how they grow. What do you think is with tomatoes that everyone? Even. It's probably the first thing other than solid, which was what I was trying to grab in the nation is probably the say destroy degrades of. and which was a lovely. Appalling attentive Goering's.

Ensure, idea to other people take that. Is. Dog Mattis. Ever good. He's got them. Say Song Trixie That's one of the things easily grind. Fuel ubiquity. But I think that's one point where people do go ride rolling the stall in that. Your Voice on this in the book is excellent in that most people of to look at what other people are growing and what they think they should be growing rather than thinking about what actually do I You know I see so near where there's like more.

Bachelorette Fans Upset By Clare Crawley Poster
"Some Bachelorette fans are confused and a little pissed off to be honest. We know the show likes to play with our hearts but the poster for the new season is messing with our heads. It features bachelorette Clare Crawley. Some fans were upset pointing that it looks like the poster for the graduate. You guys remember that movie it's a movie about an older woman seducing younger man. Well, this is pissing people off because Clare's, of course, the oldest Bachelorette today at the age of thirty nine years old and they're saying what the hell like, why are you making her look like she's just this old woman she's thirty nine. Right I mean, I have to say when I saw the poster I live for a Pantsuit I thought she looked strong I thought she looked beautiful I thought she looked like a woman that was going after what she wanted felt like it was her time you know obviously doing seasons previously and just not finding her match so I get how people can. Be upset but you also could just be upset right I. Just don't think it was necessarily negative I don't think he's trying to I. Don't think he was trying to play on her age I think it was trying to kind of show an empowered woman that's like this is my time I'm going after what I want exactly like what Mrs Robinson did. Not people who aren't complaining about. The movie and if you haven't, you should 'cause it's fabulous La. Also like how do you know that Claire Wasn't in on the joke like if I was the first game bachelor on ABC, I would try to make a tongue in cheek joke about it. My poster would maybe be derived from something of that nature. I just think that Latin sorry twitter is the Latin word for outrage and there's just people that want to start a fire and it doesn't make any sense.
At RNC, Republicans paint dark picture of future if Trump loses
"Republicans spent most of their convention evening one painting, a dark picture of life. If a Democrat specifically, one named Joe Biden wins the White House back with us tonight to talk about what it is. We have just witnessed Claire mccaskill former Democratic senator from the Great State of Missouri, which might have been referenced once or twice during Tonight's program, our own Lawrence O'Donnell host the ten pm eastern our on this network, of course, and David Jolly former Republican member of Congress from the State of Florida who has since left the house and his political party but he has not turned his back on the state of Florida clear I'd like to begin with you. In terms of tone and substance, and the the kind of takeaway feeling you got after a night like tonight. You know this is the presidency of lies in this was a couple hours of lies. Mostly about Joe Biden is and his policies but also lies about Kobe and lies about healthcare and is you know the thing that rovings it really struck me Brian was the nerve they had of telling immigrants stories tonight Nikki Haley talking about being her parents in immigration Maximo Alvarez from Cuba. Who came here in an asylum situation from Cuba seeking freedom, and then maybe the most unbelievable is all the two women from Guatemala. Selling honey. You have to understand that children from Waddell Malo were ripped from their families arms. and. On purpose this is this is a presidency that has shut the door slam the door on people like this, and so the idea I mean I can't decide which was weirder them having the mccloskey's Vilnai's black people or and then having Tim Scott doing the keynote or a presidency that has been so bad on immigration trying to feature immigrants as part of his story. David Jolly. What do you recognize from your former party we heard. Kimberly Guilfoil. Speech in an empty room tonight saying that Joe Biden is out to destroy America her life partner Dj Tj. Trotted out a new nickname. Beijing Biden tonight because apparently. Nicknames are genetic So, wh. What did you make of what you saw tonight? I bring a different set of ears to this perhaps than senator mccaskill, just give him my my past partisan affiliation and what I would say is from a messaging standpoint, there were some very effective moments and I think maximum Maximo Alvarez speech was ineffective one I think the policy elements of Tim. Scott's were effective I thought Vernon Jones the democratic state REP from Georgia at a very effective message and to certain extent Herschel. Walker. But but then there are two things that kind of trample on that I as you mentioned is is kind of the Colt like narrative. That is all things trump for Matt, gaetz saying MS thirteen moving in next door to Charlie kirks screed on terrorism to Kim, Gulf Oil's. american-carnage reductions if you will all of those elements trampled on what would have otherwise been a fairly normal message to expect from an RMC. But the other thing it requires is for you to suspend the past three years of reality to the senators point the separating moms from children, the abandonment, of NATO, a president who was impeached for trying to cheat the American people in the upcoming election president who want. Release his tax returns who's been named as a co-conspirator in a federal crime in the Southern District of New York it requires the listener to suspend all of those moments that we know are actually the real trump administration and the trump presidency. So unfortunately, look, there were many moments made for TV that we're effective, but they will be lost in the greater trump. Trump is a cult that will ultimately define this convention. Lawrence O'Donnell a bit of darkness on the edge of town in the midst of a pandemic, an unmistakable message that they're coming for you. That's one of the messages and Brian. We try to evaluate the effectiveness of a night like this or any that is this week we have to ask ourselves how long or how much of this did the undecided voter watch and the underside voter watch with very little of these things and some usually they don't watch it at all. So it has zero effect. If all it's doing is reinforcing the votes you already house and so if you think about what was said, tonight, that could appeal to someone who wasn't already voting for Donald. Trump you got some of Tim. Scott's a speech I agree with David about that but not the part the part where Tim Scott suddenly. As if almost to say, I, don't really mean this started attacking Joe Biden said the job behind his ambition is quote a socialist utopia applied that to Joe Biden, and so the speech starts to become nonsense when when he does that the only person I heard actually mentioned something the Donald Trump would do in a second term was donald trump junior and the only thing he mentioned Donald Trump would want to do in a second term is to end the payroll tax end the funding for social security and we learned today from Social Security, Trust Fund that that means Social Security would be unable to pay benefits. In twenty twenty three and I just want to alert the audience in the past you've heard people use the phrase social security is project projected to go bankrupt at some date distant in the distant future. What that always meant was social security will only be able to hey benefits based on the amount of money it takes in that week, which is to say, would have paid about seventy five cents of each dollar that it owed. This idea would leave social security paying zero zero of each dollar that it does and that is the only trump idea for the second term that was actually mentioned tonight that I heard.
The Indicator checks in on our junk bond named Becky
"Back in December, which, of course seems like a lifetime ago we the indicator made an investment. You might remember that was my Christmas present was your Christmas present we bought a junk bond. But you wanted this actually. Says only as you would wanNA junk bond, but we should explain what a junk bond is. So a junk bond is like a little loan that you give company. If you buy a bond, you're essentially blending the company or or the government. You can buy government bond to your lending the money, and eventually you get paid back with some interests them little extra yet and how much interest well, that kind of depends. So. If the company is in great financial shape, then they don't have to pay too much interest because there is not that much real risk to lending that company money. But at the company's a little shaky, not doing too great. Then they have to pay more interest because lending them money is risky. It's sort of like lending money to you know you're flaky friend or something where it's like, Hey, flaky friend who? Can you spot me for dinner? Yeah and like if you're give that person money you Kinda WanNa reward for taking on that risk. So yeah, that's a junk pot. Yes. So when companies have a lot of debt or are in shaky financial shape, they have to pay a lot of interest on their bonds and those bonds are called yield bonds or in the more fun term junk bonds Y- like your junk friends. Oh Yeah. Well that far. there's bad news about junk bonds though which is that they are riskier than other kinds of bonds and the company that you are lending money to is not considered a super safe bet the good news though they pay a lot of interest also good news they're relatively affordable mean bonds in general are pretty expensive like thousands of dollars per bond it's big money and the indicator we are on a budget. So we bought the cheapest bond that we could find and it was. For a company called hornbeck offshore services, this is a family run company out of Louisiana and Hornbeck is an oil services company and has all these big ships and they bring supplies and equipment to drilling rigs way out in the ocean. So we bought to bonds the absolute minimum for total cost of about six hundred dollars, and we named the Bond Becky for Hornbeck, and we called the bond becky with the good yield because the interest rate on our bond was huge also beyond say. He better. Caldbeck you with the good. and. Just to give you some context, a government bond back at the time back in December treasury notes the yield. As they call, it would be about one percents. One little over one percent the yield on becky hundred and forty six percents. That is a good yields. So we bought our bonds and we sat back and we waited for the money to roll in the sweet sweet money or not. When I first heard that you purchased Hornbeck I was honestly kind of scared for you. This is clear. Boston covers the bond market for Bloomberg way back when you did that it was pre-coded at the company was already having some serious struggles and Had started to do things that looked like perhaps it was going to file for bankruptcy. Then of course, like the world fell apart in couvet happened and we kind of forgot about back I did stop paying attention. Yes and so now I have some updates for you I checked in on becky feeling this day was coming. Yes. Okay. So I update Hornbeck is bankrupt. Yeah. That's very sad. I actually tried not to look up Hornbeck. Did come across my screen at one point. So I, I knew it I just didn't want to know what it meant for. So I've avoided looking too much into it. I mean in a Lotta ways it's not that surprising over the last six months thousands of US companies have filed for bankruptcy. It has been a really brutal time. Yeah, and I mean. Hornbeck I remember was struggling before the covid pandemic came along already couldn't pay its debts back then yes. So hornbeck declared bankruptcy but you know even if a company declared bankruptcy, if you have a bond, you will typically get paid back in the bankruptcy settlement right at least in part. So you know we're not necessarily in terrible shape I asked Claire. Okay. Please look into this for us. Tell us what happened to Becky. So I am inert I pulled the restructuring plan out of the bankruptcy documents and they will not learn summit. Yes. Would they say give the new like like do you want the good news or the bad news because actually I think it's it's actually mostly bad unfortunately. Okay okay. But but that means there is some good

At birth adoption, Bostick theorem one of one hundred kids and I love that you early on asked that question because I do think it informs everything that matters about me was shaped by that fats. That is a lot of people and I cannot imagine saying that amount. If you bar blood in my family, let alone my siblings, I really want to understand. Like what that dynamic, wise and like your parents sound like extraordinary people that were able to give to so many individuals to really provide a home for so many children I mean literally just walk us through the very tactical how many people lived in the house like how many of your siblings names do you now? Okay I'm sure I, know all by siblings. Can and it's probably the reason that I remember he'll stories more than their names now because I used of all capacity. Sensitive, it's all that I've ever known. So my parents learned of two little kids neighboring town who were suffering for mcglasson abuse. My Dad was at work in bag. My mom was working from home and she got him in the Aren Ima. Ronald. So I'd never known anything this. It's through the ice of brands that I came to realize how bizarre was. So there were never more than sixteen Abbas several living at home at the same time but there were many times when there were six of us living at home at the same and what was something really unique about our family. Of course, the numbers are big but the other thing is that I love the way you talk about family because I. I've always had a sense of what it means to be family. That feel a little different than maybe some of the conventional thoughts around what it means to be family. So family for us in order mentally we were not biologically connected. So that's not what brother or sister in our household I had a lot more brothers and sisters I have a lot more. Than I have sisters. I was rough and tumble with my brothers and my sisters we engage the Lai in activities together. And often they were outside.

"Is gonna look very weird in very different. Here's why Original bachelorette Claire Crawley decided to quit the show mid season has nothing do with Corona virus. She caught something, all right. Love. She fell in love with one of the contestants and decided she didn't need to keep going. Rumor has it. They started flirting before production even started. A source on the show, says he found a way to get in touch with her and began talking. By the time filming began. They were basically already in love.

‘The Bachelorette’ Casting Shakeup Expected for Upcoming Season
"And I know we don't normally cover bachelor bachelorette stuff but this one thing kind of just took our interest and personally having watched bachelor in paradise. I have a real liking towards Teixeira. So we just wanted to discuss because I think it's interesting. So. As you guys know Clare Carly was the Bachelorette her season of course was interrupted with the whole Cova situation. And nothing is confirmed with basically the rumor is that she refused to continue shortly after filming began. Because she fell in love with one of her contestants. This guy named Del Moss he's thirty one. You know he there was a little bit of drama I think early on with his social media activity according to reality Steve which I can't speeches reliability but I can say he has been right. A lot of times said the basically she fell in love with him night one she gave him the first impression rose and she you know think about anyone else she felt so hard and she was done. and. So. I guess she really just didn't want to continue filming and so. The producers obviously were freaking out and Teixeira Adams who is twenty nine years old she was on Colton season she was basically the runner up. Her and Hannah after Colton basically quit to get. CASSIE and she was on Bachelor in paradise and she was dating John Paul. Jones. She's just a bombshell. I've always thought she was a class act. She's stunning. She's really good energy. I actually am really surprised that she was not always the choice now that I'm looking back on it although. I. Remember when Clare was initially announced we were thrilled because I think it's really exciting when. The woman is a little bit older maybe want something different in her life at that point whatever. But what's interesting is if you remember when they had done the initial casting, they had to let some people go because they wanted order contestants. So apparently, and again, I can't tell you this designed to present. This is what's being reported apparently, they kind of were calling back on both some of the contestants eight initially lecco because they were too young and also some of the contestants that Clare had eliminated. So I don't know what's going to happen, but you know Franz Verbs, let's just take this as factual. I think it's more fun to analyze it that way. And I have to say like while I'm thrilled if this is the case these I would so much rather watch tasty to be honest I think she's just really fun and lively and I didn't I got a bad taste in my mouth from Clare after initially liking the whole Matt James Situation I just thought that that was a little bit. I don't know I was not into it when she kinda call now for basically doing charity work and like I'm happy that Claire Found love that's going on. But what's the fuck? How many people think they found their person the first night you know what? Yeah. I mean listen I'm not a bachelor watcher. So I don't like there's a lot of I guess. Details and and patterns and things that happen over the seasons like with different people and people who nuclear people don't like I'm not involved in any of that I really don't know I have a very like personal view of the situation but to me I always thought the whole point was to find the person you wanted to be with the bachelor and a lot of people probably knew in the beginning but continued to date throughout the show like I just I just thought that was the point maybe I'm off with all of my lack of experience in the bachelor but from the very beginning watcher beginning understand her it seems like that's kind of the point of the show. No. I mean, yeah you know listen I do believe that there are certain times when you just know and you're like, this is my person and there's two sides to that one one I'm sure one side could say like. She's right. It wasn't paired the other guy she was doing them a favor, but the other side is. Okay fine. You have that in how much better of a story will be that at the end of the day you knew since day one I don't know the whole thing seems weird. If this is really the case, all I will say like of Clare's happy and she's with this guy in their happy he's hot For her but if tastes the Bachelorette, that would be some shit.
Ben Shapiro on the Michael Brown Shooting
"I'm old enough to remember when Barack Obama went out there during the Ferguson riding and said, people don't make up things like this. He was talking about the Michael Brown shooting Michael Brown shooting by the way, it was a good shoot. In fact, it turns out that after another review of the Michael Brown shooting by officer Darren Wilson, it turns out five years after the six years after the case, the case has been dismissed again, according to the Daily wire. Amanda Prestigiacomo reporting ST Louis County Prosecuting attorney Wesley Bell announced on Thursday he will not be bringing charges against former Ferguson Police Department officer Darren Wilson were fatally shot Michael Brown, 18 back in 2014. Ring, a Thursday press conference. They'll announced the news by prefacing it as quote one of the most difficult things I've had to do, noting that his heart breaks before the Browns. The question for the office was a simple one could prove beyond a reasonable doubt. And when Darrin Wilson shot Michael Brown, he committed murder or manslaughter under Missouri law, Bell asked after an independent and in depth review of the evidence, we cannot prove that he did. He, by the way, is the county's first blast. Black prosecutor he reopen, reopen the case after taking office. One of the reasons he gained office is because of disapproval for no case against Darren Wilson, the first place and then he looked at the evidence, he said, Sorry. We can't actually make a case at his office conducted a five month review of witness statements, forensic reports and other evidence, the AP noted, adding his investigation does not exonerate Darren Wilson. But it's not the way the criminal justice process works. If you're not convicted, that doesn't mean you're not. Exactly that does not mean that you are exonerated. There is no exonerated standard in criminal law. There's just not prosecuted. So you also get to Claire not exonerated. That's not the way this works. L said. I know this is not the result they were looking for and that the pain will continue forever. Jim tally, Wilson's attorney noted Belle's review had the same conclusion as Bells predecessor. A grand jury and the usdoj was Obama's deal J. By the way, there was no crime. The Obama Justice Department at the time, pointed out that there was no crime but doesn't matter. Democrats have continued to lie about the Michael Brown shooting and use it as the basis for a political campaign to suggest that America and police officers are deeply

Claire Wasserman, founder of Ladies Get Paid and host of "Friends Who Talk About Money"
"When you think through, you know whether it was your experience at that event or obviously in running organization now, what do you think are the biggest misconceptions that exist about women and money? What do we need to dispel? Yeah, I think I mean things are changing now again. Remember I, started this dialogue about four years ago four and a half years ago. It's just a taboo subject you know and when something's taboo, we don't talk about it. That's that's a shame can live, and we're all socialized by how we were raised the messages that we received whether it was our community or our parents. Are you know media and you just don't talk about it and you carry baggage because of it. You know the way that your parents dealt with money. You usually deal. Deal with the same way and for me. My parents just never talked about it so honestly. I was missing a whole education. I don't even how to balance a checkbook, so part of it is emotional, baggage and part of it is just logistics. What are these things and if the stock market feels risky, and you don't want to research it, you just don't invest will that's a problem right because it compounds. It's good to have your money in the money market, and not just under your pillow so again emotions logistics, and this desire to not appear greedy I. think that's pretty fricken. Female I've had women. Tell me that they don't WanNa. Negotiate for two reasons one. They feel like they'll look I don't know money hungry I or that bill over sell themselves. They'll get that big raise and they won't be able to deliver. I just can't help, but think. Would a man feel this way and I don't WanNa make generalizations, but I'm GonNa make generalization about that. We both can relate to that for sure. One of the biggest questions we get asked in an something. Honestly the we struggle with a lot ourselves is negotiating. What are some tools or tricks that you've picked up along the years to help you when you think about Negoti I mean it begins with mindset going through all of your fears around negotiating whether it's fear of losing the opportunity or jeopardizing the relationship We teach a class at ladies. Ladies. Get paid about this. You can absolutely dispel those things remember you're on the same side. If you're at the place of negotiating the, want you, you're both trying to make this work and a compromise of the day is really both people have to give up something in order for both people to get something, and if you're feeling like this is really lopsided that you keep compromising, and they're not compromising at all. Pay attention to that, you know. Know. This might not be a place that you wanna work and I know that that's privilege for me to say like just walk away. That's that's not a reality for a lot of people. This is why didn't show important to try to have as many opportunities as possible. Network Your Butt off in at many places. I don't put all of your eggs in one basket. So that's I right shifting the mindset to see this as an opportunity to. To actually look good. You know to look professional to respect your worth, and that's where you have to do market research as much research as you can do not stop at glass door. Pay Scale talk to your alumni network. If you went to college, talk to friends talk to recruiters. Right post on facebook. Say Hey. I'm trying to figure out how much to charge. I. Bet you all are to start what I call. You know a BCC community. A bunch of Friends of mine together. These refunds were very well networked, and I said we should start ABC chain whenever we need something so whether I'm looking to hire somebody or to be hired or how much to charge right? This is a close group of friends. Were we all recognized that it was powerful to pay it forward, so challenge yourself to get at least six people who can give you. That contributes to the market research that you do. Then you want to pick three numbers. It's not just you know sure hope I get this number now. I mean they're going to low ball you, so you have to have a that. You start with very high a middle number, and then your bottom line and take some time with that bottom line. You know look at your expenses. What do you need to live? What do you want to live and you know if you don't get what you want just at? At least make sure you're also asking for things that don't cost much money, but we'll bring value to you. Career development is a great one I. was GonNa say compensation for Commuting but listen? Hey, were you know must've? Our commute is from the bedroom to the kitchen. You know, but just keep in mind. There are other things you can ask for if they really can't give you the money, but chances are. They can give you at least a little bit.
First federal execution in 17 years delayed once again
"A federal inmate in Indiana was scheduled to be put to death today for the murder of an Arkansas family more than 20 years ago but got a temporary reprieve more from CBS's Claire Himes.

Why Do Ladybugs Have Spots? Do Dragonflies Bite?
"We're talking about dragonflies and ladybugs. And we're going to be joined by someone. We've talked to before on an episode. We did about moths. I'm kept McFarland with a Remote Center Frigo Studies Research Biologist and I like to study insects and all kinds of other flying things. Why in the world do you like to study insects of all the creatures you could study? Well you know. I've studied birds and I've studied mammals, but insects to in my world. Everything you can think of. That's in the movies insects do it. They do strange things that we'd never imagined possible, and and it just excites me to go out there and find out what they're doing. Strange things like what lift something that would be like US lifting a car or leap tall buildings that kind of thing. Yeah. They're like the Superman the animal world, they can do all of things that we couldn't dream of Fahd of the sky for hundreds of feet. Fly Long distances. Long distances like three thousand mile sometimes longer than we never imagined swim underwater for long periods of time. I mean you name it. They do it so. The water and walk on the ceilings. Yeah, so it's just crazy things they do. There are so many kinds of insects estimates range between two million and thirty million different types of insects. If you count up the total number of these animals themselves, scientists think there are ten Quintillo individual insects on our planet. But we can't do an episode about all of them. Just think how long that would be. We're going to focus on to cool types of insects. You have sent us questions about dragonflies and ladybugs, but even those are categories of insects with lots of different species within them, as we'll find out more about later, but first. Let's dive into some of your questions. My Name's illegal. I live in Seattle Washington in my question is. Why do ladybugs have spots? Claire. I am six years old. I live in rent. Would Missouri and My question is how do ladybugs get their spots I Aria that result I live grateful or Kaleida it by question is how to ladybugs have spots well. Here's the interesting thing about ladybugs. There's a lot of different kinds of ladybugs and the ones that we usually think of are the ones that are red with black spots or sometimes a little white spots on them. And that represents maybe you. A quarter of the species of ladybugs, there's a whole bunch of other ladybugs that are black, Brown, red white, even some kind of other colors mixed in like yellows, and so the traditional thing we think of the ladybugs of the ones that are black and red, but there's all kinds of others that have all kinds of other patterns and colors associated with them how they get their spots. I'm not really sure how they exactly get their spouse, but one of the things is spots. Spots are the patterns are probably on them, so that is a warning to other insects or even birds that they might not want to eat them, because they might taste poorly, and so it's a way to defend themselves against being eaten by birds or other insects to some types of ladybugs have a certain number of spots and others have a different number, or could you know the same kind of lady bug lined up ten different individual bugs. You'd get ten different spot patterns. The answer is yes. It happens, both so there are lady bugs that have certain number of spots in evac through even named after that, so there's a native lady bug in North America called. The nine spotted lady bug, and it has nine actually, and there's the seven spotted lady bug, and it usually has seven spots. There's a twenty spotted lady bug, and you get the picture. There's different kinds of ladybugs that have different amount of spots, but sometimes within those groups they can have a variety of spots, so there's one. One kind of Lady Bug comes from Asia called the Asian ladybugs that's been introduced. It's been brought here in an outlives. North America and sometimes it can have almost no spots, and sometimes it can have maybe a dozen or more spots on it, so it's really variable. Compared to say, the nine spotted lady bug, which almost always has nine spots, and we have listeners and I think every continent. EXCEPT ANTARCTICA, we haven't gotten a question from Antarctica and do ladybugs also live on every continent except Antarctica. I'm pretty sure they are on every continent, except Antarctica. Yes, and that brings us to this question. Hello, my name is Hallelujah I live in. Rwanda CA golly. My question is. How many different types of ladybugs are there? There are over five thousand different species or types of ladybugs in the world. And as Kent said, it's not just the spots that vary, their colors can vary, too, but those colors are basically always there to warn predators that the lady bug will taste terrible now. Some of you are probably wondering why they're called ladybugs. Anyway or maybe you aren't even sure what insect were actually talking about. Not everyone calls them ladybugs for example. If you live in the United Kingdom you might call them, lady, birds or Ladybird Beetles and Kent says he actually doesn't like the name Lady Bug because they're Beatles, not
"claire" Discussed on Fresh Air
"A little bit kind of loathed to admit this a little ashamed to admit this but my focus was always on making sure that I I wasn't putting the production at any risk more than myself or my baby. She's kind of insane but You Know I. I ran six miles every morning pregnant and then did you know a thirteen hour. Day was nuts and then with Rohan five years later I was filming in the first and second semester was Cyrus had been the second and third so so then. The challenge was just being exhaust. All the time and nauseous and I kept falling asleep in between takes. But I couldn't tell anybody why and my Dresser who's really lovely woman and she had crocheted bag for me and I fell asleep on this crocheted bag and I. It looked like I had third degree burns and they had to like they. Put an like a hairdryer to it. We had to wait for about twenty minutes. You know before we could film and I just thought. Oh my God do they think I have a substance abuse issue or you know I. I was really paranoid about that but I was just so exhausted and I just wanted to scream. I'm pregnant you know till yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I was just. I was superstitious about it. Even at that point But it was the kind of confusing. What's the more feminist thing to do to pretend like? I'm pregnant but I could do anything or say like I'm pregnant. And that needs to be respected much more feminine. Say I'M PREGNANT. And that needs to be respected and. I didn't have that in me at that point now. I do now that you're not pregnant. Yeah this was pre me to you know. Oh true right So you've shot the last episode What was it like to come to the end? I still feel like I'm coming to you. Know it's it's been ten years of my life. It's been eight seasons but it's been ten years and it's been formative ten years you know. I started the show as a barely married person. And I'm leaving the show as a mother of two at the last really meaningful scene I had was with. Mandy was of course a very dramatic one and I I definitely fell apart emotionally and I just remember mom getting getting talking about but just remember sort of clinging to him You know it's it's very profound what you share it. The trust that you build over that length of time and we shot the show all over the planet. I mean really and in Israel and Morocco and South Africa in Berlin It was kind of epic are really look forward to seeing how the series ends Metoo I haven't seen all the episodes. So D- what I'm excited to share. I will I tend to watch it with everybody else. I don't even know why exactly I have the means of getting a hold of the episodes. I would imagine you do. I kind of like tuning in with everybody else clear. This has been great. Thank you so much. Thank you so much. It's such a treat and an honor to talk to you. I just love you claire.

Championing Emma as not just a great piece of literature but also a great detective story a series of deceptions misunderstandings. So cunningly crafted that both Emma and the reader are led up the garden path by the end order is happily restored and the truth is shown to have been hiding in plain sight as Emma realizes how badly she misjudged. Everyone's romantic motivations including her own. If you've read the book or seen in earlier adaptation you won't be surprised by any of these revelations the script by the Booker Prize winning novelist. Eleanor Catton is fairly faithful to the story and no less satisfying for it. This Emma isn't audacious reinterpretation like Greta. Gerwig little women which took significant liberties with similarly beloved novel. Okay so some Austin. Purists might take issue with the early shot of Mr Knightley naked backside as a servant helps address or later seen when Emma briefly lifts her skirt to warm her rear end by the fireplace. But I liked these moments earthy humor. It's too wild way of puncturing her character's pretensions as if to remind us that their flesh and blood human beings beneath all that stately diction and period finery after the effervescent comedy of the movies. First half the second is basically one emotional knockout punch after another aided by a musical score that deftly balances Whimsey and melancholy. It helps that the wilds actors are so good at finding fresh nuances. Even in this timeless material I loved every hilarious moment of Miranda Hart's performance as Miss Bates. The village chatterbox. Who Stories Bore Emma to no end but who turns out to have the biggest heart in Highbury Mia Goff is especially loveliest the naive Europe.

Isn't it horrible? It's horrible but I just one. Maybe I didn't really understand it or to. Maybe I just didn't have the patience for it.

My guest is Claire Danes. She Stars in the Showtime Series Homeland. Which is in its eighth and final season so you you went to Yale And your grandfather Gibson. Danes had been the gene of art and architecture at Yale did you. He was no longer there. When you were there right. No no no no. Did you study with his friends? Had He left a mark that was still visible. Yes yes I had Well he had commissioned the architect to design the architecture building right took a lot of my classes and everybody hated that building. Yoga it was. It was often discussed How dreadful a thing. That was which was funny. I guess but yeah and my and my I took an introductory architecture class with Vincent. Scully who was my grandfather's best friend and that was really quite wonderful when when you are thirteen. Your grandfather ended his life and his wife's to by turning on the car in the garage and dying from the exhaust fumes. His wife as the way I understand it had advanced. Alzheimers you are thirteen at the time. What was your understanding of what happened. Oh I mean it was devastating. I didn't understand it. I felt abandoned and I missed him terribly and I was really mad at him. But as I've aged and matured I now have real empathy for him He just had terrible luck in life his first wife. Claire whom I'm named after my dad's mom. She died really young. She died when my dad was ten years old and then he remarried and they had another Baby my uncle mark and then she died. She got very sick and passed away and then he married his third wife. Elsa gets who he was really in love with She had a very interesting story. She was wonderful painter German Jewish woman who had fled the Holocaust and lost a lot of family To that and yeah and then in their seventies she had this terminal illness and I think he just couldn't take it to take another loss so I see that now and And I have compassion for him but at that point. I think I was too small to understand that. And I was just so fixated on my father and I thought okay. Well you lost all of these. Why but my dad has lost all of these mothers and he's still here know but it doesn't work that way. Exactly you know and I. I'm fortunate that I've kind of gone to a point where I can realize that but no. It was so sad so sad. Did your grandfather leave a note You know he left Like post it notes all over the house labeling objects that he was gonNA give to differently both really sad but you know he was really clear about it and it was the right choice for him so I think it's okay. It has to be okay right. Did he leave things for you? Yeah he left me like an ivory talcum powder container and other things but it was so specific like people are really interesting. Were so interesting so you have two children. And they're they're both pretty young and one of them was born. I think two thousand eighteen and the other earlier in the in the series Was it hard when you were pregnant? Or when you're like a new mother to go back and forth between you know being in a pregnant state or being a new mother and it was really hard getting into all the all the difficult situations that carry is always young at one point. I was pregnant with Cyrus shooting the second season. I was about seven months pregnant. It was a night shoot. We were shooting in some old sewage factory or some kind of ICKE icke place and I had been kidnapped by the body of the season. Boone is year and I was handcuffed to a pipe was four in the morning. I was so tired and I just thought like this is. I don't think this is safe. This is exactly the opposite of where I WANNA BE. Deep into my. I was probably in my. Yeah my third trimester. It was it was it was pretty crazy No no honestly I I am.

"We would our little urine baby it would probably need to like live and that toilet might need to live in that toilet. You're right and it would be jaundice so well for sure. Okay extremely okay any who. Okay Claire Claire so the TV movie Eh. That Kristin was yes we got the name of it got the name of it the TV movie. That Kristin was an with Clare was called Polish wedding and she had braces in it but in the still that she showed me her mouth is closed used. Do you think that was a racist thing where they were like. All Polish people wear braces. Everyone in this movie has to have braces. They bad teeth. They spent all their money on braces offices. Let's a stereotype. We person had braces in real life or she had like prosthetic brace flare question. No Claire didn't Kristen. She said I had braces. Maybe you're right. Maybe that was. The character had braces because the braces. Now that I'm thinking about it I don't think she did I I wanNA say she had him for like a week. Okay well that doesn't know like they were almost perfect by any of that. They orthodontist and he goes by. I can have this fixed by Sunday with these braces. Take them on Sunday. And you're GONNA beautiful smile. What Google but instead? I'm going to ask Christians Ma okay. We have a question. Did Kristen have braces in life. And for how long and if so for. How long was it over a week? Take a but we should open up a orthodontia clinic. That's called one week orthodontia whether we could. I know I know but think how much business we would do in that first few weeks before people got wise morals. You're more oh Mike Golic the thing you sent me last time I got. I have the greatest idea you think. I can't even say it's you have to make it very clear kidding okay. So I'm I'm definitely joking plans to really do this. But we're watching the morning show Yup and loose. I'm guessing it's loosely based on Matt Lauer. Maybe they haven't said that explicitly but I would say yes okay so appears to be kind of based on Matt Lauer and evolve his indiscretions. There's no arguing. The Guy Guy was incredibly good at that job. Right and Bill o'riley even though I can't I never watched the show on my politics are opposite tremendous at that job. He was number one in the ratings for every year on that network so anyways I was starting about launching a a network called canceled canceled network or cancelled TV. And it's just just all these guys that have been canceled and You know I think people in public would be like I hate that person but then at home they would probably watch it 'cause they would think no one's looking at them down. It was really an explanation of the difference between public and private. Sure sure. And that's Joe. That's a big. That's a big big jokey. Okay yeah but I do think it would be very successful. I don't I'm not saying of want it to be successful. I think it would be very successful. I really don't I don't know no I don't think they'd have a percentage of people who would like it. But do I think it'd be a popular. No and then you use UMEDA you. You came over the top because I was saying lower and Bill o'riley which I don't think either was accused of forcing anyone against their will. Rampant abuses uses a power. But I don't think there's any rape allegations right but then you came over the top and said you could have Weinstein do like a movie of the week to be nice. Ah He's he's well. I had a feeling so actually. That's why I said I was wondering what you were going to say. You didn't respond to me for the rest of the night But in the show told me but I wondered what your response is going to be because I thought maybe you were going to say something like that like. That's not the same thing but it's close to the same. It's the same thing you're right. It is you're right. It's the same thing and there's a gradient yes there is but I say no because I'm always saying that in the more I'm like watching some of this actually the I finished the morning morning show last night. Okay and Steve. I love your on in a mess. That's what that's what mom said about you so you last night she said Oh my God Monica to change your pants five times over. How good Steve Corral? Everyone's jealous of Steve Corral. 'cause I talk about. I'm AH. He's the new Gene Cornell. Yeah but anyways so good but I'm watching this whole thing and I'm just like yeah. It's horrible level these these abuses of power in the chain of power. And it's really bad and sure so technically he didn't rape anyone. I'm only drawing the distinction between consensual sex and nonconcern sensual now but I think the line is a little more blurry than have traditionally additionally given it credit. I think you're probably right. I'm seeing this because I'm listening to catch and kill Romans podcast which is really good in reading his book as well which is also really really really good and when you start hearing the accounts from a lot of the people like rose McGowan account all the like. She's being touched out of nowhere aware right and so it's just like you're catching up. Your brain is trying to catch up to what's going on and then it's evaluating all the ramifications ends career and or otherwise and so by the time you could even launch maybe a game plan your pretty deep into an assault. Yeah exactly and so. I definitely underestimate how much of what could have appeared to look like consent. Exact isn't exactly which is another. Great Chapter of Malcolm's book is the complexities of consent. He's like number one. One of the biggest challenges is how can you even educate educate people in college about consent. When there's no consensus on what consent is is it nodding? Yes is it. Removing Your own club like polling all these people on anything constitutes can sense in. There's just no consensus around. That is like you don't even really know what marching orders to give everyone. It's it's such a complicated topic. Sh Okay baby baby. What are we going to name our baby consent? uh-huh I think we should name him or her baby she Hungary p Baby. He might not like that was she won't know that lightly but also she'll just assume that everyone was born in a toilet that's nice for her. Although appear baby you know could have both par- oh Oh Binger in a little rock doc hermaphrodite. Yeah Hermaphrodite why I learned in anthro. There's really only been I think one or two in history rally because part of the definition is that both sex organs have to function so quite often. Come like you'll see. There's all kinds of things that could happen in the womb during the development where something was interrupted erupted then it came back online so you can have women with Vagina. That appears almost like a penis on topical tauruses breath not really but you know there's been cases that were filed as from Aphrodite. But they're not. They don't have functioning sex organs this. There's approximately seven hundred worldwide. I don't believe that characterized by the presence of both ovarian intestinal tissues tissues or one or both gone ads. Okay but all right so I think at least in my anthro class. They had to be functioning. We not just present they call this true Hermaphrodite. Okay look at this. I just claimed I love being my mind chain. So so thank you rob. It doesn't feel as fun when you do. It is when sorry please. So she said Claire. Now we're talking back to not. PB Okay okay. Back to Claire so so at some point you are required to be an an artist. I didn't want to make her eat up. Time explaining the history that to me but I I was like I didn't know that I had no idea. It says the artist in resident president. Zoning Law was passed in nineteen seventy one to allow for the conversion of two hundred commercial lofts to residential use on the condition that each contained a certified artist. West Soho and no-ho essentially zoned for quote joint living working spaces so that these properties would be uplands to any non certified artists for for years was widely ignored as agencies like the Department of buildings concentrated their efforts on matters more pressing than carving out affordable spaces for artists to live holy one become certified as an artist. I wonder I know. Why aren't I certified? Should we explore this figure out the process. I want to get some dirt. Cheap square footage in Manhattan. Yes so Ho- so yeah. I was living in New York. I'd probably WanNa live there live in the West village. The West village. Yeah it's hard to pick one or the other burgers are over there in the West Villi hungry. Now but emily's is in Brooklyn. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Well there's an emily's in the West village are it's not our emily's it's beautiful. It's the same emily's in all the burgers are a little bit different at each assocation. So ours was Brooklyn. We'll eat there again. Maybe we'll bring her baby. They're traveling with her. Is GonNa be hard. I will say it's going to be her grandma or her mom no. She won't be her mom because I guess you'd be Komo but doesn't feel super complimentary. Does it well. I don't know what to say. Hey that's just the truth of the world is not in there I put. I'm not convinced that she won't go pee in there before our babies maze wolverton singularly. Well we'll know yeah. Okay so her mom. Aw Oh yeah. Her mom had a daycare and that just reminded me no. My hot grandma had a daycare. Oh Yeah I would. I have loved one of the DADS. Drop the baby off. uh-huh nope your grandma. PP babies there. But I would spend summers with them and so I was always around all these little kids and I was really jealous you were yeah Oh yeah. I did grandma's attention. Yeah and then like when my mom would. Sometimes I'd spend the whole summer. My mom would be there for like a week or two and then my mom would play with some of these kids and I did not like that and then my aunt would sometimes come in and also be nice like read us both a story and I was like no my aunt. Yes do you think from being an only child for eight years yeah probably. I wanted a sibling so bad. You think you're going to have a strong streak of jealousy in your next relationship. Maybe I I hope not. Maybe the now I mean I'll try not to work on it. I'm just curious. How do I know I can't predict? Ah No but you have like a hunch. Maybe based on the babies playing with grandma your well being okay look people evolve okay. I do think so when when you're born second like your your whole world view is you gotTa share them with this kid. It's just you you're forced to practice sharing yeah in defining love not including exclusivity. Exactly that is no is no one's fault I would say my brother is much more like you. Just because he too two had five years without me. Yeah that's true. I mean I guess if I feel safe by the person I probably won't feel jealous right but I probably we didn't feel safe with my mom or your beautiful Gaga. I'm kidding I feel like it's brand for your dog to have had a daycare I'll really yeah. Well I'm going to all the stereotypical Indian immigrant stuff and I think like engineering medical. All these different things dairy McQueen I never Child not my grandma's age women were not doing that. Women were housewives right or housewife. She was a housewife but then also ran a daycare. Okay was it profitable. She charged a good living. No right they saved a bunch of money and they were very frugal..

"Okay. Okay and now. My favorite labor part of the show the fact check with my soul mate. Monica Pacman Monica Pan. Hi there was going to be more. It seemed like there was going to be a little more. Of course it was. It sounded like there was a statement that was gonNA fall but there was but I was really just thinking about the effect that we wrote to the Addict Day which is always a great start for my day. Just want to throw that out last night and I do worry when you live across the street I guess I could just walk over to your house and then walk you hear well. Yeah that might be fun ritual so we won't ever have to travel. That's live where we were. We can walk doc from your house to the attic. Three steps so exciting. Yeah so I mean we should tell the armchairs. 'CAUSE I mean not to like bring it down down another going to be sad about this but eventually our attic that we're in right now is GONNA get demolish it's gonna be dust and ash but it's GonNa be a wild. You know that part. We cannot get a permit for that thing. I'm trying to build. It's just not happening. Well I mean great for the Mo Jo of of this ad but bad for like I need to exercise and that's where my exercise equipment is supposed to go this huge garage. There's there's no designated place in our new house. The basement right well. That's kind of what I've been pushing Belfour so in our current house with a basement. That's where all my gear is right. Rip Rip gear. Heavy things are that I lift up and sat down so I said look on. I know the basement of the new houses of theater room. But it's going to probably doubly after Jim for a year. She did not like that she was like put it in my office. I can't fit all that crap in your office also have an office. She thinks no. And I'm like I can't go a year without working. How commit suicide in the backyard? Oh my God don't say that. Oh my God by the way. Can we talk about suicide. Sure I mean I know this is going to be a weirdly encouraging take on suicide. Oh goodness okay for real as I get deeper into glad. Wells book I just want you to read it so bad I will this motherfucker. The things he tackles he's so fearless. So it's talking about. Oh the famous poet Dickens no but you're in the right world only play Kingston why why plath Sylvia plath Sylvia plath breath so she killed herself in England and what she did was put her head in the oven and turned on the gas and at that time every every single house in London burned type of fuel called town gas out the not natural guests that we now use so tom guests. Was this kind of dirty mix of all these different gases but you could kill yourself quite easily with it. So when all of London had town gas the number one killer of people was town gas was people committing suicide with town gas because it was very easy to do and so the traditional thinking on suicide was like well. If you get rid of town gas gas people just find another way to kill themselves. And that's what I thought going into this chapter. And that's called the displacement theory that okay. Yeah if you took away guns then people would just use knives or whatever but the work of a certain sociologist or psychologist started investigating and realized that there's a strong coupling aspect back to suicide so it's not just that someone's on a war path to kill themselves. It's that they have to think about it. And then the situation is right and in and so what happened was when they switched over to natural gas. The suicide rate did dramatically drop. It didn't just move over to another method fit. And then he goes into the folks who have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge which I think is like fifteen hundred at this point. It's the most of any structure in the world. The most people kill themselves and there's always been these movements to put up barriers. So people couldn't do it but then the argument was we'll know they'll just jump off something else we're going to spend all these millions on these barriers and there's GonNa jump off something else so why not put it into healthcare or something or some prevention which again. I would've probably bought into that theory but one of these people did is investigated of the. I want to say it was like maybe five hundred people who had been interrupted in their attempt to jump off the Golden Gate Bridge over seventy years. A person win interviewed all those people that had been interrupted in only twenty five of the five hundred ended up killing them. So how yes. Isn't that so again. Trusting suicide is one of the hottest topics For me I get very anxious during that kind of conversation. No I used to have when I had a really bad anxiety. I used to feel like I was not suicidal. Oh but I felt like all of a sudden I was I was just GonNa look down and I will have done it like it will have happened to me which is not what happens by glad I was. Yeah so I had a lot of anxiety around suicide. Yeah but I think that's really profound and and sorry. I mean not to be political but this twenty thousand people a year he'll themselves with a handgun in the US now. Look I'm a gun owner I just I WANNA be dead on us about that. I own guns I also if there was a button on the wall I can push and there's no guns in America I would push that button and one second so I very complicated relationship with it. I don't like them Munaf that I would want one kid in a school. Getting shot over my loving of them again. I know it's much deeper than that for people. And it's a constitutional right and all this stuff so I'm not even going to get into the weeds on that. I'm only going to say the data. He gave us that. It would appear that it would cut at least ten thousand deaths a year off because because this coupling mechanism is so strong. Just it's amazing. That's why I'm so drawn to everything. He writes almost every chapter. I enter with the exact mindset that most people have some opposite way of thinking about it. That's substantiated data. I Love I love heavy. My opinion change change. It's so rare non for you in general in life. It's hard for me to do that. But I'm giving you a compliment but I find it very Byu for inducing like as I was driving home from work yesterday listening to it and I was just like all all tator a little baby boy in a toilet bowl of stew. We tell people that we think we might be having a baby. Sure I WANNA I. Don't WanNa start the rumor mill but I used Monica's toilet at her new house which is a non-functioning house and what I did. Is I flush toilet and flush properly and I was like oh the water still on great then a whizzed then I hit the flusher again. oop sees no water in there now. So and then I came to you and it's like I've commode and I got I'm going to have to bring over a five gallon bucket of water and flush Jeff. We'll we'll get to it and then you were there like a couple of days after and and You were GonNa pee your pants and on top of my I did. I don't WanNa put in another toilet because that would just be multiple things so appear on top of your P. and it's all still there. This is weeks ago bears fours and we think that maybe the a mixture of the Pe- a life of growing we don't know we don't know maybe Malcolm Gladys could weigh in on how many broth babies historically how many bras. Let's be reserved. I think this would be so exciting though if we went over there into win over there with the five gallon water bucket and then we heard my dad that there is a little yellow baby down there really love I love it..

So I've I've appropriated that affected in annoying but it's yeah I hear from our American. Forgive us it should be called anyway. Sorry anyway so I was like not going to college and for that reason I was there to learn. I was Nerdier than any kid in that school which was ridiculous because there were a a lot of sure did really attracts nerds. We Love Yeah. Got Him so jealous unique. Where you'd be files were obsessed with? Didn't finish I went for two years and I you know. So that's all I got but I feel like her two years at yells more impressive than our clinicians. Yeah you graduate. Well you win. No I don't think so. Yeah what did you major in. Well I didn't have to major because I only went for two years but you were going to get psychology. I was but then I realized that what I meant by psychology. Oh Gee was in fact English because I was frustrated by psychology ultimately. It's also like a baby field jour-jour Dan hundred. It was asserting itself as empirical in some ways yes as scientifically driven and oriented and. I didn't didn't think that was true. I remember I took some class. where abnormal psych or something and we had to write an essay every week and there was some controversial subject that we had to say was either good or bad and every week I would say well the data's inconclusive? I just don't think think we can say and I would get penalized. I'd get punished for it and I thought this is. I know like we can manipulate these numbers. Anyway we choose and do you know I would imagine engine your you know a ton about psychology at this point I from having an interest in it as a kid and then also plane someone. That's bipolar but you know the whole history of the DSM. And how it came Abou- wow now tell me tell me so. They're all forget the name would say in the fact check. There was an English guy who came to America specifically specifically to expose how bad the state of psychiatry was and the. US In what he did is he deployed like six or eight people and they had to go into to a clinic and all they were allowed to say as I hear the sound thump in my head and then once they were admitted they could only tell the truth so the only lie was I hear the sound thump in my head and these were generally people participating where other students and whatnot and they got a myriad of diagnoses right like Schizophrenic just a huge barrage of different very very serious mental health elements and then he published this and the whole community. The American psychology associates. What they said well we need to do something about this right so they decided to come up with a standardized tests which became the DSM and the DSM is a questionnaire or that a computer can read until you basically what you have? But one of the fall outs of like say the first. DSM is if you give it to people what you find is that probably eighty eighty percent of the country has a mental illness so their conclusion was either will mental illnesses pandemic or DSM isn't really getting us what we want. There's now been several iterations. I don't take a position on it but it's a fascinating history but there was one psychologist. Who really took umbrage with what this guy did? And he said and I wanna see but I always say that. He worked at Johns Hopkins but he said send me somebody a fake to the clinic and I will tell you who the fake is and he. He agreed to this and they said at some point in the next month I'll send one in in at the end of the month. Johns Hopkins Guy said it's this person he said I didn't send anybody Eddie. So it's Kinda like his double trick sending. Yeah there's a fascinating documentary about it. Yeah but at any rate so you were like this might be We might be still early in this sophomore. And Yeah I mean as I said I have a disproportionate number of therapists to friends as well and I strongly believe in therapy. I I love the therapy. Yeah Yeah I love it. You started young. Yeah yes what six six six. I am a New Yorker so right. It's kind of a narrative rob them. We went to therapy. I saw ghosts and and I think I was also I was developing sort of OCD patterns but there was a Gargoyles who lived on our pipes and our loft and would would make me do things. Like maintain a contorted position for twenty minutes. At a time I couldn't take a shower alone because demons were coming out of the shower head and it got pretty extreme. That's a lot to joke. Yeah and so my mom took me to get in and he helped me work through that. Okay so what's really interesting is when when Monica suggested that you had maybe been drawn to acting because you wanted a thing of your own. I was wondering if you were drawn to acting because you have total. Oh No Control C. I don't know I think that it doesn't come for more. Like a PAL AJI. I don't I don't think it it comes from the meeting. A need that should have been met in life and that wasn't being met or something. I was just a really keen close avid hungry angry observer And I just really always was deeply deeply interested in human beings and I had no patience for cartoons when I was a kid. I DIDN'T WANNA waste my time with an abstract image. I wanted to look at actors in real space in time and I got really lost in those details. Honest to God. My first memory of acting was when I was about three it must have been three and and I was pre nursery school. There was an Indian American woman slow. Who's our teacher who I loved and it was naptime and I was always a really bad napper? I'm still a bad napper ver- very good girl. I am still a very and so I was pretending to sleep and I had. I remembered that my mom twitched in her sleep and so I was. I was doing that. I don't remember thinking like ooh that was really subtle.

"Just really cool right having not seen Arthur yeah. He was a short English gentleman. Yes and was he you. He was very charming. He had a hard time remembering his lines. I I don't know if it's because he was very drunk. He wore lifts. He had at a grand piano in his dressing room so cool and he played it all the time really and he was very warm and and in by. Yeah probably I didn't know but it was absurd. Okay my so called life. You are thirteen when you got it. I was thirteen. Did the pilot did not get picked up. Oh I I went back to high school. I went to high school and then like a month in my first semester. They said Oh wait. No we are going to pick it up. and and we shot nineteen episodes and then it was cancelled so we didn't even get to the end of the first season which is kind of crazy considering how well known that. Show because it bran Dan. I had a few after lives on different. Networks put it kind of was Kinda was and then but it was picked up by MTV which played it on Moore. I saw so it seemed like it went on for longer. It didn't so you were fourteen when you shot about the serious okay. So you're fourteen and you guys who moved to Santa Monica the whole gang. Well my brother was as I said was seven years older so he was in college at this point He was at a religion and twenty one. Monica and my dad's business happened to fold and my mom was ready to do something else so it kind of worked out well for our family but we were so green. We didn't know what was going on and we arrived literally the day after those massive earthquakes north of ninety four. The Northridge Earthquakes Wchs literally the day after which was just too potent of a metaphor. So we've experienced all these aftershocks and everybody was Ashen and I mean everybody was just traumatized. And we're like hi. Yes so it was. It was a strange way to arrive. That's that's really bizarre. Because I chew landed in Santa Barbara at the day after even Santa Barbara Felton after yes quite significant significant. Yeah yeah I mean I kind of this is a little bit like the subway rumbling. I remember my dad was really defiant sprawl out on the couch like he's going to take it on I. My mom were hovering under the you know in the doorway or whatever like we were told to. was there one of your two parents that you were more likely to bro out with they. Both did they both put in way too many hours driving around with their math guy. Yeah my parents still are in Santa. Monica Korea never left so my mom went back to art school to Grad School. A place called Otis in their fifties and now it's amazing. They live in a little a bungalow plot of land and my dad built there to studios and they make art in the backyard and they shot. So it's it's full circle have a year in the backyard where day. It's really fun is a comfortable in the Earth's great good. Your son loves it. Yes he doesn't stay in the year. We saw aw stays right next to GRANDPA and crawls into bed with him and gets to like do everything he's not supposed to do the greatest part Karameh videos so that show being very young. Did you feel confident doing that. Or did you feel overwhelmed. Or what was the experience that blows it helped in some ways that I was as clueless as I was but I also felt like you know. I had done a few movie of the weeks. I'd done a lot of student films before that You know so. There's part of me I was like I got this and then there was part of me that was like I do not data. Ah which is how I still feel to this day and I was like being tutored on set that was also really weird. Going back to high school will and making sense of those. Two identities was stressful. I don't miss that right. Is it true that you had your first real life kiss on that show or is that not true. That's it's not true but it is true that it was a more involved kiss the night ever had and there were stage directions at said I was supposed to kiss Jordan Catalonia's on his face like apart like not his lips. Okay and I didn't understand I still don't you say what does that mean. His chain like what jared had to explain that to me and he was twenty one which is very embarrassing. I just want to just talk about the real life dynamic you being gene fourteen minutes twenty one I think currently in the current climate is that even allowed a twenty one year olds fourteen year. So it's still cool. I guess okay. I don't I don't have a position on just turned. Imagine like my daughter's getting into acting and then like my first visit cassette. I'm meet fucking Mike Who's twenty two and has an apartment and stuff he's like looking forward to making Delta today I just I'm very pro sex. Excellent just the age gap would really talking seven years. Yeah did you think he was the cutest person alive. He was very attractive. He's actively ECZEMA commercials at that point. That was a high bar. What's her name with? The curly hair was in them. Oh I know who you're talking about heart ice ice Rebecca Jane. Yes I mean I was in love with someone from a commercial very high and so so if he was in Anoxia. That's the pinnacle. Yeah so did you have a real life crush on him or was he too terrified right. It was very fraternal attornal. Like Like and he was actually pretty protective of me. I think I made it clear to. Yeah it from the beginning that this was kind of it. Wasn't that kind of working. Yeah but he took me to my fourteen year old. That was fourteen. I was truly forty. He took you to a nightclub now he he did cut. I wanted to be the what you call room with skewed. No Viper has the viper room with something like that or sure. But I remember Leo. Is There Stephen. DORF was was there. Leo Stephen Thing on the whole Oh and they were they were not well no it was A. He's at that table able. He's at that table. I remember that that is so fun. Yeah that drama. That is so great. So were you sad when it got cancelled cancelled. Yeah but I felt kinda jerked around by the show because it had not gotten picked up and then they'd get picked up and we were cancelled before we even finished. I just was like new boundaries. You're like I don't WanNa play this. I don't know I. It was stressful. It was stressful. My heart had been broken a couple of times so at that point I was a bit calloused. I think so. Did it help that. You got nominated for an emmy for that and that was just very surprising. First job as a league. I was just so dizzy from it all into both parents. Take you to themis or one or the other or did you. WHO's your dates number? Who My date was? I remember going to the Oscars with my dad when I presented when I was like like seventeen or something and Muhammad Ali was sitting in front of us and he was Louisiana Shit being pleased. I could give that to him. You know yeah so you got nominated even on the show got cancelled in all kinds of things start opening up right. So what is little women I after that was first. Yep Yep so I did that straight after my so called life. Have you seen the new one. I haven't I really want to and I heard it's great now I I'm a big Greta. GERWIG fan I was trying to imagine. Imagine how I would feel about having been in a movie. That was remade and I feel like probably good. You make little women you assume yeah like if the star wars cast was furious talking about making this is my classic it off this centuries old masterpiece and but the big thing and certainly the first time I became abundantly aware of you because as I had not watched that show when it aired was Romeo and Juliet. How do you end up getting that job? What were your thoughts as you mentioned a lot? Did you know who Leonardo di Caprio at the. Yeah no no. I was a big Leo fat. Okay great starting with what's eating Gilbert grape. I like what was before. He was in the Tobias Wolff Book. Always this boy's life boy's life Wolf. Yeah this is life man and from from that point on basketball diaries oh he was amazing. It was unreal real in that. Yeah I was mad mad impressed by his skills with a Z. Yeah I guess I just remember auditioning a lot and then finally auditioned with him and Mitt work to you. Kept your shit together. Yeah and Baz wanted to make as alive and fresh and accessible version of that story as he could tell and my sensibility crime suited that interpretation and I think Leo and my acting styles were sympathetic. Oh yeah you're seventeen. And he was twenty one is that I was sixteen and he was twenty one. I turned seventeen when we filmed did you. I'm having a memory that was shot in Mexico City or some very good. It was yes okay so to go to Mexico City any in now you have like a hotel room and You're in a foreign city creatively. I was just in heaven. You could also drink when you're seventeen in Mexico. I'm not asking. I drank like twice on that movie around because I was a kid. I didn't really. I wasn't really practiced at this. Okay yeah there was one time when I got too to drunk. I didn't get drunk again. Okay I was a child really. I was not a drinker but not I mean a lot of people at that age went to Cancun on spring. Break at sixteen and I drink all the stuff that was really. Yeah no I think I was too busy working and I didn't know oh how to be a drinker. I just want you to know because I would hate for you to think that I only female guesses male guests to WANNA know so bad if they fell in love with the person they worked with. I would've fallen in love with him. I was so I think smitten with him as an actor. Then I think it was crunchy for sure but it was also a little a bit like the jared th like. That was just never going to happen right. Like I didn't like the drinking like I didn't know how to to go about that. And he was already in the business for like eight years. He's probably seen having a good time and we're really different people right. I mean I remember at at one point he just was so frustrated. And said how can you be so still I said can you be so active the like as a very kind of frenetic energy and I am not you know that I can be like like really focused and I guess on satis specially like very centered. Do People read that. Is You being friendly or I think they can. They can read it that way. I've never mean to communicate that right and sometimes I worry about it being a lead actor and I think I should be setting the tone for performance give I mean I think I probably would do set the tone by default. That's just the tone I said but I think there is real value in having the number one call sheet person be more gregarious and a like a morale captain. Yeah Yeah Yeah. And I don't know I don't like like naturally excel at that but I really want to be in a healthy environment and I want to be decent and expect decency around me and stuff so I think that is a good thing that can radiate but yeah yeah but but I'm in some conflict about that like Oh God. I should be better at being the cheerleader. Yeah right and when when that movie you must've been delighted with how it turned out right. It was Oslo and done before that. That was certainly the the first ballroom. Oh right he here's a real genius and an tour and has this kind of incredibly comprehensive fantastic understanding of not only the story but like doc the world..
