"Here. So the total percentage of sales before Cove it in e commerce with 15%. It jumped to 34% in three months. Okay, so let's stop. I love it because I had this conversation this weekend. And I remember you and I had this conversation We first met and I was one of those things We were talking, taking out of numbers. Forget who we're talking to effect. I think I know what you're talking about. What we said. What percentage retail sales do you think happened online? And everyone always say 50%. 20 you say, Look down at your clothes. You tell me how much you purchased online watchband really was 7%. Three years ago, correct And then it went little by little, and we're not talking about black Friday. We're talking about the Internet on Lee we're talking about. Overall National retail federation number 7% jumped up to 50% say again, what it is. Now it's 34% on. They're predicting that after Kobe this is a Mackenzie blur, but they're predicting anywhere from 20 to 25%. Still, that's a significant jump, and I know that many people there's only 25% of our sales are done online. But if you consider it with 73 years ago And then it went to 15 and now we have another. It's almost was almost doubled Huge and so on that basis I ask the questions. I think that Colbert will change us the way 9 11 change the way we travel, taking our shoes off right at the right. But I don't know. I have said this for a while. And I wasn't I wasn't talking about. We're gonna get more hand sanitizer and stock up on but I think it's going to change the way big businesses hire Because suddenly like when my do my morning show my morning radio show you're not there. I'm on a big stick. It goes from Santa Elena. Human. And guess what? I'm in my kitchen. I'm literally sitting on my dining room table with no pain with micro sorry with a microphone and I don't think I'm ever going to go back. I'll tell you what. Why bother with getting up? 45 minutes earlier than I have to. Why bother having to fight traffic to get back up to this show afterwards? Okay, I'm literally have saved two hours of my life because I'm working at home. Is that going to be the same in other businesses? It's definitely starting to trend that way. I think technology companies like Facebook and Twitter. They've been very vocal about making sure that they want their people too remote. Remotely work, if possible, and not everybody can you know you gotta work on a server. You've got to be there, but I think that there's way more open to that. But I think the larger companies are still going to struggle with that. And there's going to be difficulty in and having a more senior leadership. Not being you have to be there. How do you tell mother? I have the metrics changed as an employee. On what I need to do an interview now that I know I'm going to be remote isn't completely different than it was. I'm not Simon's The interview process itself in talking about what skill sets, so I have to convince that I didn't have to convince before. Well, I think in general and join a zoom very good here, my son on backgrounds, and when Russell's does assume there's hardly ever a guy that walks behind him in a towel or a current. Obviously, there's those things, but there's gotta be a new skill sets now from I think you have to really convey that. Trust factor, right? I think that's really important. Trust in what trusting you're going to do your job with minimal supervision. Oh, wow. That's a thing. Yeah, I think about that because you don't have a supervision Pies. Every movement is your supervision. That's how that works. But honestly is that that is a big piece of this thing is opportunity cost as well as productivity cost. By not having people over your shoulder. Sometimes I'm not necessarily saying every employee has to, but I would suggest are people working longer from working and well, I've always worked from home and I mean, there's been a small state. I was in an office, but I always work more at home. But you could get a potentate. Nine danger said found work in the morning. I am gonna work out. You take a salary going toe to toe work.

I've worked with so many different hiring managers and I get to know their wants and desires. But yet I also see Different side like the pattern there, you know, I really want to bring somebody and it's going to change everything. And then you realize, while they really don't want that they really want like a real estate agent. And, you know, you know, these people want a three bedroom with a pool and I don't want to show him a two bedroom with no pool. She's the bumble recruiting.

Dr. J. Mario Molina Discusses Medicaid Program Financing in Light of the On-Going COVID-19 Pandemic
"On background, the ongoing Kobe nineteen pandemic has caused the worst unemployment rates since the Great Depression. Since Medicaid and the economy are negatively correlated when one's up the others down. Recent Kaiser family. Foundation study concluded that by January, seventeen million people could be newly eligible for the Medicaid. Program that would represent a twenty four percent increase in current program participation. As state. Which Medicaid funding is typically the second largest state expense after education they've cratered largely since two thirds of state income is generated via income and sales taxes. One month ago, the C. P. P. estimated states that are required to bounce their budgets. Each year are looking at revenue shortfalls totally accumulative five, hundred, fifty, five, billion dollars over fiscal years twenty through twenty two. In an effort to short state Medicaid programs and mitigate the economic fall back fall out in mid-march. The congress increased the federal government's Medicaid match termed eth- map by six point two percent in late. May The house further up the match to fourteen percent under the Heroes Act. The here act would also provide more than one train to state and local governments including nine, hundred, fifty, billion flexible aid. The Senate Majority leader however failed to refuse to take the house bill. As of today, it appears the presence executive steps taken Saturday to address four non healthcare. Related issues has caused Congress to journey until September seventeenth that is another code relief package will at best not be considered until late that month. With Megan and discussed the pandemics effects on the Medicaid. Program is Dr. Mario. Molina. So that document as a somewhat lengthy background introduction, let me begin by asking you generally what's your assessment? Of the Kobe nineteen pandemic effect on the Medicaid population I asked particularly in context of the fact that Medicaid is largely responsible for covering long term care facility a healthcare, and we've seen of course disproportion effect on long-term facility residents. I think that Medicaid patients are going to be disproportionately affected for a couple of reasons as Medicaid, the biggest pair of long-term care in the country. and clearly those patients have been hard hit. But we're also seeing that it disproportionately affects people who are lower income who are working as essential workers in essential businesses. Most Medicaid patients work, but they're working in low income jobs often without. Health Insurance paid for by the employer. So they are probably greater risk and we've certainly seen that black and Latino. Are More affected by. Colbert Dan. Caucasian population. Okay. Thank you. Yes. Definitely the case. Before. I ask about the Congress and state responses. Let me ask you this question. There's a lot of discussion and speculation regarding healthcare utilization. meaning that covid nineteen will will cause comparatively an increase in utilization. Interestingly enough I looked at some statistics that showed because of elective surgeries being canceled or postponed. Data showing then April. Healthcare expenditures were down almost forty percent and were still down ten percent or ten percent lower your year this past June. So this question obviously very much relates who pressure on state budget. What's your understanding of what will see relative arm balanced utilization in the Medicaid program? This year and going into next year. Well it's going to have different effects in different areas clearly, hospitalization and physician visits are down. in part because people are afraid to go to the doctor or the hospital. In. Part because Kobe has crowded patience out of elective surgeries. So those things are all down. Testing is going to be up testing expenses are up. and I think that overall you're going to see that utilization is lower in the second quarter and probably the third quarter and expected and from previous years. and I think that it's going to remain that way for a while people are still afraid to go to the doctor for many things and there is concerned that as a result, things like cancer screenings and treatments will be deferred. So we could see some pent-up demand perhaps next year but I do think that for the remainder of this year. Overall Service utilization will be lower than expected. Some areas, it'll be higher. But overall it'll be. It'll be down from previous years.

I if there's one thing that you should know about me at this moment, other than that, I'm the forever maid of honor. The hot the national until you're not National holidays, I think are the most annoying things on the planet, the worst of the worst right other than the ones that involve food. So like National Dona Day, Count me in national French Friday. Cool National Pizza Day. I could get behind those three, but some of the other ones. That it's like national cut your grass day.

Use every day Friday night, right after where every day could be national today and the reason why this caught my eyes because it it did involve having a few drinking matches. Lefty left its national lefthanders Day. Okay, which is a celebration founded by the left hander's club to honor the lefty style, So it's the 17th year this is no. This is important. It is celebrated with the right versus left sports matches, left handed drinking events and other activities. I'm I'm a right hander. I'm not right here to tell you what. Why don't lefthanders feel like they're so I mean, I guess there's fewer of them obviously left handers, but it's like no one. I don't know if there's anyone really care except give us a thing. Like when you were young when they were. Yeah. I mean, I remember like big fights over, you know, left handed, right handed thing, but Other than scissors. Um, it's really not that big a deal and of course, sporting equipment. That's about it right. There is a challenge will be baseball. Pretty much baseball playing field hockey is really challenging her left hander, Um But, yeah, I mean, I used to be one like when I was a kid playing baseball. You get if you're gonna play first base will be right hander. But I mean, the guy for Kansas City is a left handed person. So I mean, it doesn't matter Catchers Hominy. Is he? One of what in the league? I don't not. Probably not that many but just said, But it's adult like you can't want. Why not? Figure it out. Here We are getting sporting equipment and scissors. The only two things I could think when it comes to being a lefty. That's because you can't use left handed Scissors Road over. I'm not yet to figure out why. My dad. My dad's air left hander and his handwriting is awful. I don't think that's exclusive. The left hander's myself but I can't read it. I used to have great handwriting is I gotta care because I'm only one has to read it. I mean, everything I do is texting now. Well, I said that I don't understand why there's such a big mandate. Still for cursive, right? There's like this big push or curse. Indiana just passed a cursive writing and I, It's gotta be taught unicycle. Why? Well, you could be able to read it like nobody's really reading at my grandmother sends me cards in cursive. You can't very beautiful and I couldn't. I couldn't. There's no way right. It's terrible, mindless. I used to get beaten in school. Because my cursive handwriting was so bad that I got you and every guy, no prints. And there's not one person that writes in cursive except for your signature..

Fat Phobia and It's Racist Past and Present
"As a teen Sabrina strings loved getting to hang out with her grandma even when her grandma was obsessing over one of her soap operas I remember one time. She called me into the living room and she's like Sabrina look at Victoria. McCoy's kept on young and the restless. Victoria is killing herself to him. Why are white women dying to be thin? Fast forward to one three adult Sabrina was working at an HIV medication adherence clinic in San, Francisco, where she witnessed real life, examples of women sacrificing their health to be thin nights, spoken to a couple of women both HIV positive who refused to take their HIV medications for fear of gaining weight, and that blew my mind, and immediately took me back to conversations I've been having with my grandma like gosh onto something so important you know when she was talking about it, she saw it as largely a white phenomenon, but the women I interviewed that day. We're both color. Why were these women dying to be thin and did race have anything to do with? Him. Sabrina went on to become a sociologist at the University of California Irvine and wrote a whole book investigating these questions. If you're like me, you might have assumed that. There was some moment in between Marilyn Monroe. TWIGGY EH in which. Suddenly we'll. We suddenly became fat-phobic in those three years, but Sabrina started digging looking at nineteenth century magazines like Harper's bazaar in what she found was troubling articles warning American women well middle class and upper class white women. They needed to watch what they eat, and they were unapologetic, and stating that this was the proper form for. Jackson Protestant women, and so it was important that women eight as little as necessary in order to show their Christian nature and also their racial superiority. Today on the show we go all the way back to the transatlantic slave trade to understand the racial origins of fat phobia, and how black people are still dealing with the consequences today? I mattie Safai and this is shortwave the daily science podcast from NPR. So Sabrina. Let's let's get into what you discovered about the history of fat phobia a little bit you. You did a ton of research and you started the story several centuries back in Europe definitely in the ethos that like Renaissance Women. you know we're full figured. And that was absolutely a thing that was valued, and then there was a big shift explain what was going on back then so it turns out that the growth of the slave trade, especially by the eighteenth century led to new articulations of what types of appearance we could expect of people by different races, and also what types of behaviors. Such that by the middle of Eighteenth Century, a lot of French philosophers in particular were arguing that you know what when we're in the colonies, we're noticing that Africans are sensuous. They love sex and they love food, and for this reason they tend to be too fat. Europeans have rational self control. This is what makes us the premier race of the world, so in terms of body. Body size, we should be slender, and we should watch what we eat so okay Sabrina. Are you telling me that? When the slave trade started and European saw that African women were essentially curvy much like European women at the time at that point, they decided that being fat being thicker wasn't ideal anymore, and they built a system of oppression around this idea of needing to be. Thinned to prove racial superiority is at eight am I close. It's not quite as intentional as that. Effectively what they determined was that. You know we want it to be able to have a mechanism for ensuring that we could recognize who was slave, and it was free right, and it was easy in the beginning of the was simply skin color. What did you might imagine? After two hundred years of living in close proximity skin color really no longer works has a mechanism right, because now we have all of these people who are We would consider them today to be by racial, and so what they did was they decided to articulate new aspects of racial identity and so eating and body size became of the characteristics that were being used to suggest that these are people who do not deserve freedom. The trans, Atlantic slave trade eventually ended, but argues that we are still absolutely living with these racist attitudes about body size today. And in her book, she also traces how these anti-fat attitudes worked their way into modern medicine for somewhat arbitrarily, reasons for example take BMI or body mass index. That equation actually wasn't intended to be used to measure individual fatness. Though of course doctors did and still do today, can you? Can you explain the problem with using am I as a measure for obesity especially when it comes to black women, who I know have been told that they have the highest rates of obesity according to that measurement to be am I. Yes, so am. I is a measure of the ratio of a person's weight to their height. And what this does not account for is bone density. Muscular already any other type of genetic influences in your way or cultural environmental influences in your weight, and so, what ended up happening? As many people pointed out is that you might have to people with the same BMI, but vastly different life experiences embody compositions outside of the simple reality of their weight to height ratio, right, and the problem of applying this to them in particular, is that African American populations as studies have shown for literal decades since at least the eighties tends to be healthier at heavier weights than white populations. And so that already is an indication that cross racially. This is not a very useful tool, not to mention the fact that even within race there are going to be vastly different experiences, of an individual body between like their weight and their health profile so surreal this message from the medical establishment that excess weight is the biggest you know reason for black women's health problems or a very central of it. Why do you see it as so damaging? For Black Women, ultimately, the main advice that people are given when they so called obese is to lose weight, and there are so many problems with this. We have been telling people to lose weight for decades. What ends up happening is that they either don't lose the weight or they sometimes do lose the weight, and then frequently gain it back so first off. It could be more harmful to tell people to lose weight in the long run, and then in addition to that there are the psychological effects of telling people that their bodies are wrong. Right at their bodies are inherently unhealthy This type of fat stigma also leads to health outcomes right right right, so let's talk about this. In the context of covid nineteen I'm thinking about the recent New York Times op Ed you wrote about how cove nineteen is disproportionately impacting. Impacting people of Color specifically black people, and how you took issue with obesity, gaining traction as a leading explanation for that disparity, so talked me a little bit about that. This piece was actually motivated by something that I felt was very troubling, which was I had been seeing so many report, suggesting that the disparities in Colbert outcomes between white populations and black populations. They would say things like well. You know there's already the pre existing factor of obesity, and somehow that was one of the first things that come up and I thought there is very little evidence that disparities in quote unquote obesity are what's contributing to these negative outcomes, but there's plenty of evidence to suggest that Kobe. Fatalities or maybe even serious complications with Kobe nineteen are being influenced by people's environments. Are they essential workers? Do they have access to enough soap and water hand sanitizer, and so of course might imagine that the ability to socially distance to shelter in place to have access to healthy foods under Corinthian, all of this is very much being structured by a person's social location and black people tend to live in communities without access. Access to a lot of different healthy and life giving resources. Yeah, in in Sabrina, I'll tell you that as a person that reads a lot of the literature on Kovin prisoner biologists I am seeing a lot of papers coming out that are associating with the obesity without with health outcomes of COVID, but those links tend to be correlated right, but even if we were to find out that there's absolutely a causal link. Link between covert and obesity which I think you're arguing. There isn't one especially right now. At least the rates of obesity and white and black populations aren't actually that different right like it wouldn't necessarily be the thing that made it. So can you tell me a little bit about those rates versus the actual percentage of disparities? We're seeing so according to the CDC, the Obesity Twain. African, American and white populations are. Are Forty two point, two percent for white populations and forty nine point, seven percents for black populations are about that and so we're looking at effectively a seven percentage point disparity between white and black populations in terms of rates of obesity, however, when we're looking at serious complications with covert nineteen. What we're seeing is that black people are dying at rates of two point four to seven times that of white populations. How that's seven percentage point differential is leading to two point four to seven times the disparity in serious complications. Death. No one's really being able to explain that. This is the problem with the kind of cords of studies, which is that they lead people to believe that somehow. Is One of the drivers when in fact it could simply be a confounding in these studies, but we're so used to studying obesity and treating these correlations as if they are evidence of causal link that people are frequently not being very critical when they're seeing studies that show these relationships. Sabrina, you've obviously spent years by now working to understand this issue and to educate folks about it I'm wondering you know like why why this. Why have you specifically taken this on one of the reasons? Why continue to do it? Is I've seen what a difference? It's made to people's lives. I mean I've had so many people reach out and tell me that they felt for the longest time like something was wrong, but no one was talking about it or that I have spoken to their personal experience. I couldn't have imagined when I started doing this work. That could have possibly had the impact that it's had you know I'm standing on the shoulders of giants people who have been feminist scholars medical scholars journalists who've been doing this work at least since the nineteen seventies, but we're at a moment right now where there's a critical mass of people who are aware that the discourse surrounding fatness that we've long accepted really is baseless, and we think about a new way of allowing people to have a positive relationship to their bodies, and to cultivate health within themselves and their communities that does not rely on that stigma. Okay Sabrina I appreciate you. Thank you so much for coming on the show and sharing your life and your work with us. I really appreciate it. Thank you so much. It's been a pleasure. Sabrina strings.

Netflix is Hollywood
"Where are we? We are in Los Angeles. We're about to turn onto sunset. Boulevard Hollywood maybe in Hollywood. Okay, so we're. We're approaching. Hollywood hills. Really Tall Palm Trees. So should we explain why we're? We're driving through sunset radio. There's a bunch of billboards here, right? That's what we're. Getting at. Less Ronnie our producers, etc piled, a newborn, took a drive down Hollywood's main drag. It's a traffic jam packed with billboards promoting new TV shows and movies. I've been covering the business of media for a long time, so I served as tour guide for this trip, but Ronnie is a data reporter who mainly writes about tech companies. She doesn't typically pay a lot of attention to what's going on in Hollywood. Here, we have a a the crown net flicks up on the right. Have you watched any of the crown yet? I have not. On the left we have marriage story billboard. This is a Scarlett Johansson. I don't think I want to watch that. You may not be the right person for streaming roddy in a row. We got the Irishman. That's Scorsese's film and then DOLEMITE is my name. Reading that right. Alfie, these are both movies. They're both movies. You can see on Netflix Sega. Any of these this is this is a worthwhile trip for learning. What's on Netflix? You could just actually go to your browser. Are these like already outer. These are like I don't know. Someone like hermetically sealed raising. A drive down, sunset isn't just a chance for Ronnie to see what's coming on. TV, it's a way to watch Hollywood talking to itself, these billboards are messages which are very much directed at Hollywood except now. netflix's doing most of the talking. Stranger things net flix. The politician. Net flicks, one billboard tuna flexible work three Netflix. Netflix well years ago when Netflix was first getting into its own programming. Executive there told me that because they were tech company. They didn't have to do things that traditional media companies do like renting billboards, so it could show big-name talented netflix serious about Hollywood. That guy turns out was wrong. Netflix has decided loves billboards so much that it went out and bought some for itself, and now the company owns many of the signs on the Strip. This, you still look like before streaming. That's one of the main ideas we keep running across as we're working on the series, it's almost impossible to imagine what the world like before Netflix. Even though that time was just a few years ago. If you didn't know any better, you'd think. Netflix's has always been a huge part of Hollywood. Syphilis can be fatal to your baby free. Check that out not flick show. UNCLEAR UNCLEAR? Welcome the land of the giants. The NETFLIX's effect. I'm Peter Coffee. Today. We're talking about how NETFLIX's.

World to companies becomes so omnipresent in our lives that CEO Reed. Hastings even counts as a sort of celebrity. He's a big enough deal for a guest spot Stephen Colbert. You're like one of the big one of those big new media disruptors. Why did the entertainment industry need to be disrupted? Just for the fun of it. On this happened really quickly. We talked to Kim Masters veteran show business journalist at the Hollywood reporter who said that a decade ago Netflix's was an afterthought for big media companies newcomers from Silicon Valley or anywhere else did not strike fear in the hearts of moguls. There's a thing that happens in Hollywood. Which is the outsiders come in, and they think boy. There's a lot of stupid rules in Hollywood and people sure do dumb stuff, but we're going to be much smarter than these idiots, and then they get kilt. It turns out that Netflix was the exception to the rule. It didn't get killed at one. And NETFLIX's did it with Hollywood's help. You can trace all this back to two thousand eight, which is when Netflix's really broken into streaming by getting his hands on a bunch of blockbuster movies for a bargain, Ben, price, it had made a deal with stars premium cable channel. Let netflix's stream always rate movies from Sony and Disney so stars had created the service called Vong which nobody listening to this podcast is GonNa Remember, but there was a service before Netflix's. That was streaming. Streaming movies called. Longo Van Gogh was losing seventy million dollars a year. Rich Greenfield is an analyst with light shed partners. He's been following digital media closely for years, and in walks, Reed Hastings in Ted Sandoz and says hey will take that streaming content. You could sub-licensed to us and we'll pay you. Tens of millions of dollars Netflix's use it as the base to build their streaming service, versus what was historically just a DVD service. And the rest is they say is history.

Is He gone too far? And when he's going too far. Can you stop him if he's in it? Sure I have sure I can stop him. I can stop him. Can Stop matter of fact every time I've gone too far and stopped myself. Yes, is because within ten minutes of each other. My wife and John Stewart said those are the two voices don't do that. Don't do don't do that, but isn't it interesting though in the beginning I think now people are getting you, but in the beginning in the early days. Yes, early days people would come on the show and be freaked out because it would really. was they would think that you. were. Exactly but I always. Play a character on the show, but I don't want my guests to be caught off guard. They're my guests. Yes, I say to every single person I do the show and character He's an idiot. He's willfully ignorant of what you know or care about. Please honestly disabuse ignorance. Don't let me put words in your mouth and we'll have to just say. The word for word I want everybody to start from the same SPA. Okay one of the criticisms that your show receives is that it can appear cynical sometimes at your audience is I wouldn't want young impressionable people. Do you worry that you're creating a generation of cynics? I don't worry that I. Am I I would hope that I'm not, but I don't. I don't on workers I'm meet the people. And they don't seem synagogue. Show that they get that. A Game I do not believe that people are that I don't believe that people are only interested in themselves and I wouldn't want to encourage that I would want to encourage. No political engagement, because young people who purport to be wise to the ways of the world are mostly just cynical, but cynicism is not wisdom, cynicism masquerades as wisdom, but cynicism is a self-imposed blindness. You put the blinders on yourself to protect yourself from a world that you think might hurt. You were disappoint you. BE A FOOL Believe things will be good better to be hurt and so. I would hate to think that people got cynical. was really good. Choosing this is about what you feel and not what is really the fat? Not What is real truth is truth is. What you wish to be true. As opposed to what is factually accurate, and then it becomes the word of the year where the year it's. The dictionary people, Webster. It's in the American Oxford Dictionary now. I'm very very excited about it and I married an English major so I think that actually is probably sexier to her. Had six pack. ABS is that I made up a word that went in the dictionary you do. Are You surprised at? The genius behind the the idea that you play a fictional character on TV. Who has now real influence I mean like Time magazine, most influential kind of influence. Are You surprised by that? Could, you say the word genius again. Right. That's the genius of that well I. Don't know if I have influence, but you do. People say that I influence them. And if they say that then that's a legitimate thing for them to feel and that's true, but that's not my intention, and I'm completely surprised by. What is your intention I might? Intention is to make jokes that are about things that I'm interested in you. Know I, do satire I sometimes I just do silly jokes, but mostly we try to do jokes that that mean something right? That's all satire satire parody with point my point. Often is. I should not be telling you what to think. But that's what a lot of nighttime punditry is. I'm going to tell you how to think and how to feel, but in a more importantly, I'm gonNA. Tell you how to feel regardless of what you think, but in your satire satirical. Take on not telling US what the thing! You get us to think. Well, that's a that's a double gainer. But I. You get us to think while want you to I. Want you to think about what I'm talking about. Yes, but I don't don't always want you to know what I think about it. because sometimes I agree with character. And it's important to me that the audience, not no. Okay so let me get this straight. The fictional character yes colbert. Raised over a million dollars. Point four, one four real dollar. Greenbacks Baby Kate with a real SUPERPAC. Yes, I formed an actual SUPERPAC this past year. The great thing about it was that I have no plan. I just wanted to find out what was legal to do with money and politics, and it turns out almost anything legal really and every time I would be told what I was about to do is illegal. I would talk to my lawyer and he would say actually. All you have to do is file this piece of paper and you're fine. Then the network called and said, are you really forming a political action committee and I said I don't know why. Why do you need to know? And they said because if you are, that could be trouble. And I said well, then we're. Doing it! Because I love trouble. I love trouble. Especially being told that I shouldn't do by then you. Don't do it, so I found out that I could raise money and never tell anybody who where it came from. And that's what's happening right now and I would not have known that if I didn't actually try to do it, but now you've got the money I've got the money honey what you doing about half a million dollars already? Okay, because when I. Sort of ran for president in South Carolina. We ran ads in South Carolina Island Texas Yep. So. You're also bestselling author. I am again again. Your third book yes. Yes, Ma'am do these come easy for you? Oh just. Off The back of our hands, hundred sixty one shows a year two hundred and fifty pages of jokes. Let's do another. How does this come about? Though that came about because, there is a sense. Of course that America is the greatest country, and it is perfect, and you must never not be proud of it in its exceptional in its etc American exceptional nece. Time that sort of the the the right wing pundits that I that I am a shadow of the same. They say that they also say America is broken. It's going on the toilet and we have to fix it, so I thought. How can those two things exist at the same time? How can could be perfect and we must get it back on track well, it can be because America again re becoming the greatness. We never weren't exactly. Yeah. Yes, that's why it can to seems that. That's the hallmark of of the criticism of the Obama Presidency America's perfect. How how dare you ruin it the way you have? And so so the book is all about how everything in America's the greatest whether it's our jobs. Our health healthcare system. Would you not need a socialist healthcare system? You realize that, don't you? Will you realize that? Yes, I see now who's injured to cheer absolutely? Yes, absolutely, we have universal healthcare Oprah that will lead to waste and abuse, because if bone marrow transplants are paid for by the.
"colbert" Discussed on Radio Cherry Bombe
"By numbers concept so I signed making chiefs played for as long as I can remember and dad left? Entertain my dad. He's a self taught cooking so growing up. We had a lot of different food flown around and all these parties family parties and whatnot so I was always put on duty as a kid whether it was cheap plates or arranging a cookie platter or crew. Detaille I was always my mom's just like you can do this. I came from a very visual background. I loved photography. Videography actually studied music industry and communications in college by cheese was always kind of this love that I had on the side and so I made that chiefs played in college in two thousand thirteen as a way to document my play creations that had make with friends with we'd have wine and cheese parties and every time. I'd make a cheese plate. I realized that I built in the same order every time. And so me coming from this visual learning background I kind of blended that with a paint by numbers map like when you're a kid and instead of colors the numbers were actually items on chiefs played. So one is cheese to is me three. As produce for his crunchy Adams five as dip sixes garnish and a friend of mine. Who I worked with. When I graduated college I worked at the late. Show Stephen Colbert and a friend of mine. There was an illustrator as a hobby and she used to illustrate all these doodles for Colbert instagram. And so I asked her one day she could draw chiefs play for a tote bag that I wanted to produce and so she illustrated when my teeth plates and I was like this. Is the perfect cheese map. It's the by numbers map. So we through numbers on it and that was kind of the first iteration of it. I love that. It's so clever when you go through that instagram account. Swipe through the CAROUSEL. You just can't be struck by how clever you are to come up with that. It's so it's one of the things that's so sad and all but it's somebody like you to bring it to life. Yeah it's funny because the swipe to build which I call it kind of the carousel sleep. That was again sort of an accident because at the time she's by numbers where these maps and I was I was trying to basically the concept of cheese by numbers and having mile straight or make all these maps list put together my very first book proposal back in Jackson. Seventeen which didn't work out at the time. Tell us why it didn't work out only because it's encouraging to people because you do have a book coming out and it's it's good for folks. No I think when you hear this person has a book. This person has a book you can be like. Oh it's so discouraging but it's not just you don't just get handed a book deal. No no it is a very difficult process. At the time I was working at the late show with John Not. He's the bandleader so I was working in the music industry. Traveling a ton still doing instagram on the side. Just because it was truly a passion project of mine making cheese plates always been this way for me to decompress after a crazy workday. And it's one of those activities for me. Were time sort of slips away and it's like it just like nourishes you. I always want to write a cookbook about g slates. Because they're a so beautiful and be there's so much that goes into a cheese plate to talk about and it was twenty seventeen. I was home for Christmas break and I just had this idea for the first time in the longest time I had free time. Actually think and that would be really cool to write a book. I wonder how I could do this. And I texted a friend of mine. Who has a book out not about food at all? Just a book. In general she was the only person I knew who has a book and I asked her. Hey how do you write a book? You publish a book and she was Nice enough to kind of show me the ropes and she introduced me to her book. Agent typically how it works. It's funny because it a lot of the publishing industry really connects to the music industries. I feel like I was able to really understand kind of the process because our seventy similarities. But essentially you need a book agent who put together a proposal with you and then you pitch this out to countless publishers to hope that someone wants to sign you a book deal so she introduced me to her agent who actually lives in. Brooklyn and I met with her. I prepared this cute little like powerpoint presentation of my chiefs play. It's actually found it the other day and it's so simple and it was back when that she's played at about twenty thousand followers. She's by numbers. The instagram didn't exist yet. I didn't teach cheese class. I had barely any press and at the time I was like. Oh my gosh this agent. She's interested. I'm going to get a book deal and I was so naive to think but it was such a crazy learning curve because I spent such longtime pain together. This proposal is about twenty six twenty seven pages. We pitched it out to twenty publishers. Every single person rejected it. Oh yeah and it was like slow rejections to like at first there was like nine to and then like ten would come in. And she's like I'm so sorry. Oh the rough. The main reason was because they were like we love the concept Cheese Bhai numbers. But you don't have enough followers on instagram. And you don't have any press behind you. So how can we ensure that this? Is You know marketable and at the time. There weren't a lot of cheese plate books out on the market. There are a lot of cheese books out that really dove into cheese may gang and very into like artisanal cheese world but not so much making a cheese plate because the landscape of instagram. At the time in two thousand seventeen you did not see cheese words everywhere you looked it was just. It was a new a new idea. She's always been there but the style that I built them in. It just wasn't really a thing yet and so luckily this was just my passion project. I still had my full time job so I was disappointed but I kind of use that as fuel to keep going. I'm with strong believer that every failure comes growth and so I just kind of made the cheese by numbers. Instagram in two thousand eighteen. Just to be like you know what these publishers don't know what they're talking about. She by numbers the great concept. I'm going to make this instagram. I'll show them and then I started teaching my cheese classes as well because a big goal of mine was to make this instagram something. That's tangible something that you can do in person and do with your friends so the cheese by numbers method basically these cheese maps. My illustrator couldn't illustrate as many as I was making. So I'd send her all these photos of cheese plates and she's like whereas I have a full-time job to I can't be illustrating like five a week for you so I realized okay. Well I'm going to do this thing called Swipe to build and basically make this six step process into an easy thing that you can swipe on instagram and that kind of took over the cheese maps in a sense so because it was so much easier for me to snap six photos at them together. Put Him on Instagram Didn't have to go through the work of illustrating everything but then I put her to work with my book now because she illustrated off cheese. It's that's amazing. What a great story you know in less than three years time. You build up all those instagram accounts. You've got over four hundred thousand combined followers and you've got a book that's out right now. Yeah IT'S INSANE. It's crazy thinking back. The growth really happened once. I started putting cheese by numbers to us because I think that method really took something. I mean so many things on instagram seem so intangible in a sense because you know it's like you see this beautiful recipe year. This beautiful achieves play and you don't know where to start to build it. You're like that's just that's unobtainable as instagram. But she's by numbers takes it and breaks it down into sections. That's so easy to replicate end so I think providing the service for free for people to just you know. Here's a grocery list. This is how you build it plain simple it really resonated and in November of twenty eighteen. I got an email from the Rachel Ray Show and they reached out and they said Hey. We found cheese by numbers on instagram. We'd love to have you on the show and this is continually. I thing where people find cheese by numbers and don't know about that cheese plate and I feel like her about it. 'cause I'm like that she's plate was the original like come on back but at the same time like it's they're both me so it's the same thing so Rachel Ray was a big place to debut. And she's she's a blast. She's amazing. It was so much fun. They didn't WanNa talk about that cheese plate because it was too confusing with these two instagram's and at the time I didn't really plan on cheese by numbers being anything big because it was at about two thousand followers when they reached out then went on the show and we did a little segment together and overnight it went up to fifteen thousand followers. Says like okay? Well now I have to achieve accounts and I need to figure out how they're going to work together instead of you know having all these followers dispersed in different places go back to when you were a little kid. You said your mom would have you do these boards and she's plates because your family entertains a lot. Do you remember what your favorites were when you were little thinking back to when we had parties and started entertaining as a big sharp Cheddar Fan? I really like the sharp cheeses. Also I remember eating like this is funny but I think I was probably like twelve or thirteen. I remember eating aged Gouda and tasting that terracing crystals like the little crunch in there and thinking to myself like this cheese. I don't know what this is but this is not American. Cheese isn't so good. I mean at the time I had no idea really what it was but that like crunch I will remember forever from like twelve years old but then once I got into high school and my dad started cooking more. He works from Holloman he kind of picked up cooking as this hobby and went full on into it like making his own pasta. Just doing all these like fun. Small dishes he really introduced me to the world of artisanal cheese and so he would get mount. Tam by Calgary which is still in my favorites such like a cow's milk camber style. I have that fridge now. Actually it's amazing and then later one that it's so decadent it's basically just this. It's hard to explain but Super Super Gooey creamy cheese that we'd put on lake cracker is with fig jam and then that kind of opened up my eyes to the world of artisanal cheese and one of my very first gateway cheeses into the artisanal world in college was humbled fog which. I think is is event favourite for a lot of people absolutely? And that's my start learning. That I loved soft ripened goat cheeses so I feel like it's every every cheese that I tried opened up this whole new world of the different style I didn't even know existed because I'm not a cheese monger and I do want to i. I would love to go to like cheese monger training school eventually because I feel like I've learned just from talking cheesemongers from going to dairy farms from being around chief so much but there's just so much more to learn it's like the world of mine you know it's like there's so many different styles and history and culture that just ties into the entire cheese world. It's just fascinating to me. Have you been able to go round and visit some of the different cheesemakers?.

close closing the doors based upon the situation that exists and I think not to to bring thousands of people all over the amount that they require yes it's often about irresponsible that I wouldn't really have to question the reason why and then the only other reason I could think that you would dissipate this logical instruction if money and the bottom line is they can cash out the money or checks the money or do whatever the hell the money into the church so there's no reason for churches to put people at risk in this particular situation I think that the logic of what my good friend Gideon if you go one of the reasons why our church might do that not getting in there to you Hey remember this country there's one that heels out the baby with you this will for sure so therefore I guess he's insinuating that V.

"It's a, it's a part of it, but it's not the only part. I mean the the final part of the the Christian stories, the resurrection, which is joyful. And you know, ADEMA saw how we remember. That's pretty bloody up until that point. Right for for a few days, right. All right. But you know, ADEMA saying that Huma helps us remember things and New Testament scholar said, Jesus used humor and his parables. We don't understand it because we're not in a first century Judea, Galilea NHS, but there are sort of examples. For example, he's he cracks jokes. He does. There's there's an example you're talking about how to remember things at one point with the scribes and the Pharisees says, you strain out a net and you swallow a camel, and we say, well, it's interesting, but in Aramaic, the words, right for camel and net are gum, LA and Gama. So what he's doing, he's he's doing a little pond. He's been a little word play, which would have helped people remember things in his day. So we don't understand joke. Yes. Yes. There's another time little time. We're one of the disciples, here's it's the messiah, Jesus of Nazareth, and he says, can anything good come from Nazareth? Which is a little bit of a dig basically. So there we, we don't. We don't get it because it's, you know, first college. Yeah. And so part of it is is recognizing that in these stories that we know so well is some humor and the people at in those times would have understood these things as funny and as ADEMA saying, memorable to some of the best satires when you make fun of yourself or your own your own tribe, I guess. So father, how would a Catholic gore about satirizing the Catholic church very easily. There's a lot to there's lots of laugh at and I, I mean, I think that's perfectly legitimate target. I mean, they're human organizations. We have to keep humble. And so why wouldn't you make fun of, you know, people were pump as or or stuffy, or things that we do that are crazy. So why not?

Star talk from the American Museum of natural history right here in New York City. We've been discussing the intersection of science and satire with comedian, talk show, host, Stephen Colbert, check it out. So Stephen. Yeah, I'm Neil. Whatever are the challenges of politics between knowing what is true and what isn't. I think we feel that even more deeply in the sciences when you have people rising up with platform speaking objectively false things about the natural world, it's frustrating and we don't even know what to do. And I have to say, let's just fall to the bottom and then everyone figures out. How they should pay attention to knowledge. I, I don't know late in the in the process of that fall, things are broken and things are neglected. When instead things could be built, an action can be taken to prevent further damage. A report was recently published leaked actually from fifteen different federal agencies. I believe who all agree the climate change is happening faster. The effects are more profound, more media more palpable knowable. By individuals you can see it happening in your lives. It was leaked because the fear was that the president ministration would. Suppress this report. So this is the world we live in now that science has to be leaked, or we're gonna get our weather forecasts from guy wearing a trenchcoat and a shadowy.

"As guests, like Neil DGT even being g once in a while. Now, one thing the United States does export for better or for worse is our popular culture are pop culture and a lot of produce right here in Hollywood USA. Now, here's hoping that Stephen Colbert passion and good humor get exported right along with the memory of all these storms. Back to you nail. Sofia. I've known this for a while that one of our biggest exports is entertainment. You kind of stumble on it when you travel and you put on the TV and all the shows are like, shows you back on, but dubbed in the local language, but we don't have any of their shows dubbed in our language back here. So so there's a great a symmetry there. And so I'm just curious, how long do you think American entertainment will continue to influence the world? Well, I mean, what we see is especially with things like what we saw on the Colbert report. Right? And the daily show there are sort of versions of this everywhere. In fact, there was a total Kobe report rip off in China. It was really funny. It was almost identical. And in fact, we have these examples of satire news show similar to what we had and part of it is it's not a very expensive format and people enjoy it. But the other piece of it that we want to remember is that. Across cultures and across time. Human beings have always produced tire. 'cause it's what you do when you need to mock systems of power that are abusing their status. Right? So there's always been a need for it's always been. So for instance, Colbert reference Jonathan swift on his show, right? So they Jonathan swift. Goes to unease are. Even all and all that stuff. So, yeah, wrote over travels. Yeah. Just showing off that I, I'm later. We all knew. Okay. Thank you. So Stephen Colbert Colbert report had such a pop culture following that it reached all the way to face. Let's check it out. Dude. You got a treadmill in space. The combined operational load bearing load-bearing external resistance. Treadmill call bear the greatest. That's. I mean, that's crazy. Man. I mean, Newton take me now. I don't. I got a bust of is over. He's looking at you smiling and credible. Here's here's how it happened. Do one is that so the old show I love having things named after me because the whole show is expression of the ego of my character. Not of me. I have no ego, a humble servant. What are the great things that I could piggy Bank, my ego on his ego and I, we were on break or something like that is about to go back to work the next day. And I noticed online that NASA was having a naming contest for one of the new modules that would attached to the space station, and and I went well, surely they're not letting people just submit names. They have to be like a list of four and it's going to be like tranquility, or, you know, serenity or some nonsense like that and that, Nope, you can submit your own. So I myself the next day, I said, go vote and we beat everybody. And then as before they announced you wanna said, okay, we need to because we're not going to name the module after you. Sorry. So this is what they, I offered me. They was through an intermediary or else I would have jumped on it right away. They said, we have a water reclamation system where it reclaims the astronauts, urine, please. Urine, this is a family show urine, and then it's filtered. So it's drinkable again, and I was like, I'm in, you mean you could name the astronaut urine filtration system after me, and and then you could bring some that watered down. I can have a bourbon and astronaut p. you know, I wanna have. That's a perfect cocktail. That's the most American cocktail Kentucky bourbon astronaut pee on carve my face on mount Rushmore. And before I could say yes, they said, okay, we've run it through the higher channels and they're not gonna let you name because this is exactly why. And they said, what about a treadmill? And I said, that sounds fantastic. Of course, not the only thing the man has named after him. He's got a flavor of Ben and Jerry's ice cream. There's a bald eagle in zoo, which is, of course the symbol of show named after him, and he has a species of spider named after him..

"MSNBC. And so what they found was that. And what is curious about this this you think, well, how could you know that? That's the only source of the news, but they correct for that, right. So one watch join Stewart in the daily show, but still consumed ten other newspapers and things and therefore Dan would give a skewed result. Yeah, you can't. That won't work for. Data. Right? So the data there was a study, for instance, in two thousand seven Pew Research study? Yes. And they put Stewart and Colbert at the top now up with like NPR. Right. So so just think about this for a minute, both Stewart and Colbert were a little freaked out. Find out that was true because it turns out they wanted to do comedy. He did not want to be the source of everyone's news. They wanted to make fun of the news and make fun of pundits and politicians. They didn't want all that pressure that wasn't what they were looking for. It was just a sign of the times I'm in that statistic because my primary source of news is through them. And if there's it's new story, that's kind of interesting then I go and dig up other sources. Well, you are exactly the story, right? Which is that people would get the hook from those shows, then they would go and start looking into it more. And that was from a satire Sam. Point of first of its kind. This is the perimeter of the comedic circle growing even further. That's why those that's really the top of the mountain top for a lot of comedians. Like for what you can do. 'cause nobody went to Rodney Dangerfield for current events. Right. Was that the news it self had gotten so ridiculous. Right? And so Cobra would make fun of the fact is specially morning news, right? They're covering, say an alligator walking down the street. No wonder people are not really learning anything. And so it turned out that the satire news was informing the public at a much higher rate and that still true, right? They really control it at some level, some of the conversation, what we try to do on our show is we're look. I'm just a comedian, right? I'm not a scientist or researcher of any kind. But what we try to do is bring and following in that mold, bring information to the audience through comedy. So we mostly go to journalists scientists and we bring them on the show, it's mixer better bid if the information you bring in current events, yes. Then people bring an awareness of it too. Yeah, you're bit. Well, the thing is people also people love to laugh and they love to learn, and they love to be informed. And so that. Temple of doing both of those things at once while you're making fun of the information answer giving it turns out to be really effective. Next in my interview with Stephen Colbert, we discover the roots of his passion for science and comedy. When star talk returns..

"Dot org. It was then viewed hundreds of thousands of times and the media had to start to cover it, react to what people reacting to. Right, right. So that was also part it wasn't just that Colbert would do. He would impersonate pundit and get away with saying stuff that other. He did it in care. It was also that it was the beginning of this amazing relationship bears had with social media and with like fan based sort of that ongoing relationship he has with this fan, what I found so fast. Fascinating that moment as a comedian as a young comedian, I was just, you know, I was an amateur comedian at that point. I was just doing open mic and stuff, but every comedian noticed that moment open mic is walks up. Anybody walks your name is not on the marquee outside. Yeah, right. You ever have this business, you have to go up and just start reading your paper out loud. Doing that. Your name was in a schedule. So so. Everybody watch that. It was such a huge moment for comedians. Like we all noticed, holy crap. This guys doing something really different. The other shocking thing about it is that they would never book him now if they were going to if they were booking White House correspondent mean, you know if they were booking today, they would never book Stephen Colbert because they didn't the political class. And the media didn't realize the power that comedy had at that moment. It always jokes. And there is actually some debate over whether they really knew what he, you know, who is character was in, can't be clear on it. Maybe they set shop or maybe they didn't, right. But no one's admitting it since then it has thirty one EMMY nominations and nine wins, and he's got a Grammy award for Christmas comedy, album winner, Grammy for for comedy. And of course the for me, the most coveted of these awards is to body. That's the one where they. You know, didn't watching not just how popular you are kind of messaging change maker change change maker. Exactly. So so I can see why he might be influential given that exposure, but why would he be so important a comedian in your circles? I mean, he he and John Stewart, both. You know, I think as a unit that that classic our back to back, you know, really showed me as a comedian, what comedy was capable of doing comedy? Could you know 'cause there? Oh, yeah. People used to make fun of the president, you know, but it was that comedy could really speak to people intelligently with intelligence and talk about actual issues that were happening today, and I never thought about that. What you're saying is that the the, the the perimeter of what counted as important and good comedy? Yes, grew, yes. So for me, I picked up different things about it, so so there was all that what you described, but I was guest on his show multiple times and that was not unusual. I. Tists get that scientists all the both of them just do it and Stephen Colbert. And so I just thought, wow, scientists now have a voice, get an important outlet that wasn't previously accessible to them. So I asked him about this heavy presence of science on his show, shake it out. There was kind of like a scientist every week or an academic who had expertise by that had to mean unlike most talk show hosts, yes, that you valued science. I love it in the conversation. I love. I love learning come from with, where's the science come from? Was a science come from? Because you're, you're comedian, your talk show host at is not anybody's. I thought, well, listen, comedians are great deconstructionist's by nature. You take things apart this case..
