Take your temperature, your temperature We could even do test beforehand. Your celebrity who run a test Isn't that alarming? That is not good Lug. He looked do it looks like a lady a little momentum he does. I mean, that's the look you're going for. That's fine, but I don't think it is. Well, what made it even better to be a hipster. This is my first time seeing him in a while and I love Conan. But what made it even better was his hair looks a bit, you know, like he's fallen on hard times. Yeah. Turns out he has Well, they just now I started doing their show at a local theater in West Hollywood. They did this in an effort to just kind of prop up. The theater because theaters are really struggling, so they're doing it right now at the Largo at the Cornette nightclub. And it's just trying to help entertainment venues and shine a light on them, So they get everything all set up in there. And then they come in yesterday to do their show there, and they have a bunch of cardboard cut outs, all throughout the audience cute and as they come in, they realize They've been robbed. They actually got robbed. Someone came in stole laptops that they had, which is how they do their zoom interviews now with their celebrity guests. They also sold. You know the slate and action. They stole that they stole that as well. So, Conan goes on this four minute diatribe talking about Now, This doesn't happen any other late night shows.

Suddenly this This show that I've been working on for 27 years is just a It's a Nissan Sentra. It's a 1995 Nissan Sentra and took the air conditioning right out. I put a blanket over the stuff. I didn't think anyone would notice. I wish I could let you listen to more but on TNT now or TVs they let Conan Conan Khun, say the s word. So he drops it in a few very funny points. Why can he say it? Because it's cable. It's you can you can say the s word realized TVs wasn't like Fox and You know, I think it was a recent choice, like within the last five years or so that maybe they were always allowed, but I think they just started with like in house, saying it's OK because they're wrestling show. I have a friend who introduced says they say it now, a lot, too, But he was very funny was like a 4.5 minute diatribe. But this, they said at one point, maybe the robbers in here but just standing really still had all the hard work in this room right now. That's hilarious. But anyways, Coco Coco is grown and out.

But Looking for him to kind of save her, and he's playing it off as if nothing's wrong but clearly Is something is not right because she really seemed like she was high man.

Voice and Podcasts with the Dynamic Duo: Kane Simms and Dustin Coates
"So background if you go back far enough used to. Say I to produce music. But the reality is I was a kid in my bedroom, filling around samples and make some Junes and writing lyrics. So they used think the funds myself as a bit of a wrapper. and. If you look back at some podcast episodes. Complete row. I think a little bit rusty other minute. Did do one for Frank Schneider of speakeasy. and. So He's Best I'LL PHILADELPHIA. So when we introduced him on the podcast did version of the fresh prince of bel-air theme tune with Franck Schneider. So they going to know So of caught a long relationship with audio and woods essentially audio together and important words into it ended up realizing the making music it is not easy to make money from. And etc. Went throughout my career ended up in marketing agencies ended up in user experience design. Consultancy Service designed eventually managing digital service transmission teams and then out freelance writing on the side as also had kept up the right and stuff, and then all of a sudden not come across. I think it was an adver around the launch of Alexa in the UK. Fiddle around with Siri, but it was reuben time in submitting bothered with it. But I see in this advert for Alexa launched in the UK and I was thinking lot seems crazy that I didn't know anything about I. Didn't know you could build for. I. Didn't know that you create anything for it. I didn't have a clue about and just thought when I see now thought wouldn't it be good if you could create something for much and if you could actually design like an old your based conversation, best experience that people could have with this thing and immediately I thought that sounds fantastic and Few monthly God device etc Pierre Around it and I thought to myself I. Think. It'd be good to try and learn really well how these things were technology is what hangs together how the build Sephora and then similar justin really start thinking about how we do that and I thought one of the best ways to learn about an audio I medium will be to create an audio I kind of piece of content, and if I'm going to learn about then a ms well share that with everyone else who might want to learn about it and so that was how the world was the podcast was born. The demand demand name in two thousand, seventeen couldn't find anybody to interview for any kind of cost couldn't come across anyone all just maybe I wasn't right using the the pro search phrases because I didn't i. Didn't quite come across y'all content that's I'm and then eventually in November of twenty seventeen. I realize that the voice book podcasters around and this week in voice podcast was around those thinking what the Hell's going on like I had this idea months ago. What's in a thought? Well, lots of evidence basically the the something that there must be something that most people are confined to speak to that was in the US, convinced that it was going to come to Europe and so that's what was not doing not like research in China in touch with trying to meet people's to flat out recorded a couple of the episodes over Christmas. The first episode might even still be on Youtube. It said, I've got my garland hanging on the the fireplace damning. And then was just about to launch I. Think Miami might have even put one episode out on immediately someone commented on twitter and said, Hey, you know that was really good. But what would be really interesting would be if there was some kind of person around the hard technical knowledge someone that could cause for me I'm astrologist in the design and always been the design of always gaping on the condor like the creative end, the Kinda strategic, figuring out what it is, we should be doing and then managing the team that kind of goes ahead and does it all during the design myself and stuff and then I. It was the on Conan I. Think he said, are you going to get into any technical content? Is that I love to I don't really have the technical background myself. Exactly. That's right. That's exactly that was young. Yeah, and then you've sent a tweet us in. You responded I think it was it was a tweet or you direct message right now I think it was on I think it was a tweet i. Very very rarely on twitter. So if you look at our different social media's canes, the Social Media Social Butterfly me, I can take it or leave it but I just happened to be there is a one day voice conference at Paris a day just happened to be on twitter following along and I saw that and I think I replied I was like Hey let's try I. do it yeah. I don't think literally within the space of. Our can probably seven days later, we recorded an episode episode four or five or something. And that was the beginning we did. We've done ever since and we've kind of as I said, the first six months foucault was doing the podcast and then we got speaking engagements and hosting conferences and events to flat now, and then twenty nineteen start getting involved in workshops training consultancy. We picked up Kanda design development projects, and still like out and then yeah, it's been more of the same of US insights Crazy. So Sir Tippety. Dustin winter. saw. Replied in a super successful podcasting percocet came out of that. People don't realize it took US two years I think two years right canes actually meet in person it wasn't until two last summer I happen to the giving a talk in London and came down. So there's the you X. Trivia for you. To Gain Dustin podcast together to. Not, each. Other. Exactly. Not just poke. We've been working together. You know it's like it's crazy how you know how I don't think we understand people don't really I. Think we take for granted the Internet basically is trying to say you don't realize the power that the house you know imagine being able to create a company with someone who you've never actually met in. Real life and work together, and you know build up that kind of relationship over two years without even an oxygen meeting is i. think is absolutely unbelievable. Crazy. It is amazing. You might think of this time of turn cove. It is all of a sudden working remotely I think more and more that's going to happen right where people are getting super comfortable. Where come outlay you were working with someone in completely different areas will be different times on different countries. All works. Great. So I see that little bit we kind of accelerated the future of work. Unfortunate events that that happened to us.

Gordon Lonsdale - Burst 1
"Welcome to Spies of London. This episode is a book review of the illegal by Gordon Carrera from the BBC the hunt for a Russian spy on a post-war London and it's about the Spy Gordon Lonsdale Gordon. Lonsdale was a Canadian man who came to Britain by ship. He told everyone had been born on the 27th of August 1924 in Ontario Canada in reality. He was Conan meladi born in Moscow. Now, I've come across God in Lonsdale many times. He was easily one of the best and most Professional Russian spies operating in Britain at any time. He was known to me because he was involved in a prisoner swap without wanting to give you too many spoilers as he was highly valued by the KGB and he met George Blake in Moscow and George Blake & Garden Lonsdale were betrayed by the song. So some people suggest that if they hadn't been portrayed particular Lonsdale might never have been discovered by the time he was discovered clearly his super deep secret undercover of work which involved him taking on this Canadian identity living in Britain away from his young family was taking its toll and more than that as with so many of the best writers when Lonsdale go back to Moscow. He started to compare it to what he'd seen in the west and realized that the West Was better. I was richer more exciting more interesting more. Make more fun and he had serious alcohol problems, but there were a few details about Lonsdale which intrigued me and I have to say I thought God unless there was a man name
How to Build a Brand When You Aren't an Expert
"Committed to your success online. We've worked with them to a special offer just remarking school listeners. All you have to do is go to dream host dot com slash marking school to learn more and get your website online today. Welcome to another episode of Marketing School I'm Eric Su and I'm Neil Patel, and today we are going to talk about how to build a brand when you are not an expert. So a lot of people are asking US hey, how do I build a brand I'm getting into this field I'm learning law and decide you know what fake it till I make it what do I do and you have to real options the first option is you can just way and then once you get really good at it and you think you're all as quote unquote expert grew whatever you WANNA call it. Then by all means blog about it creep video content odd cast The other option and this is the one I would recommend is you don't have to get expert to build a brand you can share your journey you can share the mistakes you learn, you ensure the pros, the cost, and eventually not only will you learn what to do, what not to do your followers or the fallen that year solely attracting will also learn what to do and what not to do. But eventually as you gain more and more expensive the month over the years you'll be then seen as experts have to be expert. You don't WanNA call yourself expert to share what's working for you in that industry on what's not be super open open book you transparent So I was actually just GonNa say something similar around document your journey in the beginning when people when you maybe feel like imposter and you don't feel like you have enough to teach you don't feel like you're good enough I think happened. So a lot of people when they're starting out and I think that stops them from starting. It's also painful when people don't see results for the first two to three years or so and what I would say is a good example of this is Gary Chuck. He doesn't particularly teach as much as he just. He just had a camera guy following him around d rock and he was just documenting every part of the journey on his team chop things up and that would be sources content, and then he would realize that now he's you're saying this like I don't have to think about all the content I need to produce because just living my life I'm being me he's being very authentic to himself. So in the very beginning, is there any way you can document especially if you become really really successful and people can see from the very beginning there like Even more. It doesn't matter how crappy your video your equipment is how bad you sounded the beginning while people are going to appreciate the raw ethnic you and then they're gonna see your journey another continue to follow you because they're interested in senior story people. Dave Chapelle said people don't follow comedians because they're funny. They follow comedians because they're interesting and so how can you be interesting? You document your journey, you get stronger and stronger don't give up an I feel at that point success has given. So yeah, and what you'll find is throughout your journey. Joe Come through a lot of things that can help you become expert without you realizing as he had a bigger audience, you may be asked to be interviewed on other podcasts. He will may want to interview. You may end up doing speeches at conferences. All these things will help brand your salt and make you be seen as experts, but it doesn't happen overnight and when I look at companies like groove h q a lot of people don't know but they documented their journey and eventually became super successful Gary Banner Chuck was undoing Wine Library. TV. Back. In the day for so many years spitting wind. He wasn't like I know wind better than anyone else. He was doing a show until just telling people what they feel about. You know wine in how it tastes like I remember he was on Conan one time he's again this is how it tastes like a song with dirt try chewing Konin and stuff like that wasn't near just trying to be an expert who is more so distinct this is how it is. This is how I get to know why is this is how I relate to? Overtime people like Oh, Shit your expert. You know this? Really well, it wasn't because he's saying he's an expert he's documenting his processes tasting wine, and at the same time, other people start interviewing. Esam to speak our conference getting known. That's what really helped him up over the years as well. If you even look at Logan, Paul you look at Pudi Pie, you look at Casey Nights, lot of them. They are just kind of even Graham Stephan to he's actually Graham. Stephon Stephan Show where he reacts to things actually he teaches but the the other three people I talked about before again Casey nights that Logan Paul, these types of people they're just

This is especially important for new to this if you are. are dealing with new clients or you have new teams joining your team. The first thing everybody's thinking about when they meet you is, is this person? The real deal? Can I trust them? Will they deliver? Are they the leader I'm looking for? Is this the business or client I want to work with and that all boils down to are you credible? Let's make sure the answer is, yes. So I'm GONNA pass it onto onto, teach you today's guest teacher lesson, but I'll be back to rabbit today's episode and share with you that linked to get the free, first chapter of allowance book cracking the Leadership Code, but for now takeaway on. Hello there, my name is Alla. Pumpkins. Thank you for joining me today. Today. You how to increase your influence and impact five building your credibility. So, let's get down to business. I'd like to start by giving you thirty thousand foot high level overview of our lesson today. We'll start by looking at what credibility is. Then take a look at why it's so important, and then look at the three biggest actions you can take to build your credibility, but let's start with a story about a leader named Clint. Clint is the CO founder of a software company that's grown rapidly over the last three years. He's smart outgoing and he's great in front of customers. In fact, the sales team is nicknamed Clinton Midas because everything he touches turns to gold. However for all of Clint's strengths, he has this tragic flaw. He's consistently late for meetings ten, twenty, thirty minutes. Late is par for the course with Clinton sometimes even more. In Clint is also the master of excuses as to why he's late. He'll say, well, this customer meeting went long or this operational issue needed my time or gosh, the traffic from the airport was horrible. However is much as Clinton tries to explain and excuse his way out of it. His team is just not having it anymore. It's having an impact on engagement morale. In fact, two of Clint's direct reports have quit in the last week. And the sad truth is clint doesn't have a clue as to why and the reason because Clinton has never stopped to recognize the importance of credibility. So let's start and take a look. What exactly is credibility. Credibility comes from the Latin word credibility, which means worthy to believed. Credibility, is the main ingredient in trust and trust is the glue of human relationship. Turns out credibility shares the same etymological root as the word credit, which means alone or a thing entrusted to another. So, let's take a look at why that is so important. So if you want to influence others, you want them to do something because it's important to you. So, how did they decide if they're going to do it? Well, it's based on your relationship credit score. If you have a high credit score, you've proven yourself as a low risk, high return person and the other person is likely to help. They think you're a good investment. However, if you're a high risk low return person forget about it, they're not going to help fact is people own their own talents and skills, and they only offer them to you on loan. So having a high level of credibility or relationship credit score is your way of proving that you're worth loaning to. For people to truly follow you. They have to believe you're worth following. And how do they decide it's through your actions or is Albert Schweitzer the Nobel Prize winner. Put it. Example is not the main thing influencing others. It is the only thing. So. If you want to increase your influence and impact and others, you need to grow your credibility. To take a look at the top three things that you can do to make that happen. The first. Showing up on. Time to lesson from Clint. If I could only choose one practice to grow my credibility. I'd say show up on time you should treat your performance in this arena is a big deal. It is think about it for a moment. Timeliness is the easiest and most visible thing to measure sure either here or you're not. Fact is lateness is about much more than just a few wasted minutes. In life being on time is the most basic social contract that of presence. When you're late, your behavior sends a clear message. I have other things going on. That are more important than you are. And when you're on time, you send a clear message that you value the other person. So you to choose what's the message that you WanNa send and know that your actions speak a lot louder than your intentions. The second thing that you can do to grow your credibility is to do what you say you're GONNA do. You see when you open your mouth and promised to do something you cr- create expectations in those who are listening to you for them that promise is now this open psychological loop of tension that seeks resolution and it stays open nagging at them as they think, will they follow through or not? The fact is people crave closure. So every time you do what you say you're going to do you strengthen the connection between your words and your deeds, which is exactly what's meant by walking the talk when you walk your talk your seen as congruent and when you don't. You're not. You're out of integrity something's off, which is what Ralph Waldo Emerson Express when he said who you are speaks. So loudly, I can't hear what you're saying. See Doing. What you say you're going to do is the precise deficit of accountability. have. You ever wondered where accountability comes from. It comes from the world of accounting in finance. There's a balance sheet, there's on one side assets. The other side is liabilities and the to need to equal each other to be in account. Well, in human behavior, the two sides of your behavioral balance-sheet are what you say you're going to do. And what you actually did. And when you follow through and do what you say, you'll do the two sides balanced out and you're accountable. So a top tip around this. Do you say what you're GonNa do is write things down. Keep a written record of what you promised to do your way better off being someone who under promises and over delivers than the other way around. This means you have to be clear on your commitments and also be willing to say no from time to time. So. We've looked at our first two actions. Showing up on time doing what you say you're going to do our third one is around being consistent. This is the practice of doing what you say you're going to do not just once, but repeatedly multiple times over an extended period of time. When you start to build the deposits in that emotional bank account, your credit score goes up. The, no. One's going to throw you a party for showing up on time. However, the little things done over time compound and have a multiplier effect. As an example, take the CEO of Campbell Soup, a man called Doug. It now doug was CEO of Campbell Soup, for ten years and in his ten year period as the leader of Campbell's. Doug wrote Thirty Thousand Personal Handwritten. Thank you notes to his employees. Now, by the way over those ten years, Campbell's only had twenty thousand employees, and if you do the math, it works out to more than eight. Thank you notes per day seven days a week for ten years. Now, that's pretty incredible to me. Now, I'm not saying you need to start writing eight. Thank you know today, but I think Doug Conan's example of the power of consistently and showing how that multiplies and compounds over time is great. It's so easy in this world to think that we're too busy to do the important things. See if you WanNa know what a person values. Look at their calendar and see where they spend their time because that is the ultimate test of what you're truly valuing because ultimately, every action that you take will either strengthen or weaken your credibility and connection between. which either strengthens or weakens your influence and your impact.

Oliver Stone: Memoir and Movies
"Stone, Amanda I in my mind have been circling a podcast episode about Oliver Stone probably since about Nineteen ninety-one, which is when I I had some consciousness about the work of one of the most fascinating figures of the last forty years in American cinema. There's a reason we're going to be having an episode conversation about stone today, which is that he has a new memoir that memoir is called chasing the light writing, directing surviving platoon midnight, express scarface Salvador, and the movie game. It's a very interesting book you and I have both read it. We're we're both. In some ways and perhaps frustrated confused devastated in other ways before we get into the book though and before we get into how we're going to talk about the scope, the massive scope, the unbelievable scope of Oliver Stone's career. When I say Oliver, stone, what do you think? Conspiracy Theorist just to be totally honest and filmmaker and. And really and boomer and I think that is going to inflict a lot of the way that I talk about Oliver Stone in his filmography because I am a generation younger I am a child of boomers and I came to Oliver Stone's work and to Oliver Stone's understanding of the world a generation after. He lived at and made it and it was very funny and re watching everything from platoon to to wall. Street to JFK. To realize the way in which those movies shaped, my understanding visual and political about Vietnam, and about JFK and about how we examine America and the government and I am both child of Oliver Stone's world, and maybe because of time in the way, the world has changed a skeptic of Oliver Stone's world at this point, which is just to say on the next generation. I. Think a lot of this will be boomer versus millennial and and that's good. That's how the world should work. Even Oliver Stone would agree with that though maybe not we can talk about it but I don't know what do you think of? Mid already. So many good points I. Think he's an artist to strains credulity while also I think enlivening imaginations he's somebody who is obviously immensely thoughtful and intellectual and spiritual and simultaneously feels like he completely out of control and trying to break the boundaries and stretch the concept of the truth all the time, and so he's just a a generational paradoxical figure. He's a he's a person who I think it makes immensely entertaining movies that. Don't always stand up to deep examination, and so I think he is he is an title baby-boomer figure in that way and that he is there's a certitude about his mission and there's an earnestness in insincerity to the message that he's trying to send. But also underlying that is perhaps a kind of cynicism and a skepticism about what he should be doing with his time versus what he's actually doing with his time, and so I you know I find, I've always found him to be fascinating maybe not as a human being per se but at least the stories that he tries to tell. I was GonNa say I do think he's interesting as a filmmaker and what else was a person and? We're GONNA talk about all the different ways in which Oliver Stone like quote breaks the rules but I have been thinking a lot as I have been reading his book, which is a fantastic read I will just say that the guy can write. and. Have also been revisiting his work that you and I are trained to as much as we can released I wasn't college train a separate the artist in the art the art has to stand on its own can't complete the filmmaker and the and the work, and you also need to understand that the work and the intention are possibly separate as well and Oliver Stone just makes massive all of that, and he makes a mess of that in his actual art and he makes a mess of that in the life that he lives and in the interviews that he gives and the work that he pursues and. To me that's exciting because it opens up conversation to talk about what can you take seriously and what is cynical and what is sincere and what is true and what is not true and how are we like an who is responsible, which is at least a different way to talk about art. So you know I give him that even though I don't agree with where I think Oliver Stone comes down on those the answers to those questions but even there, I'm just guessing. Well I, think if you look at the book, you certainly are looking at the man or at least the the self perception of the man, and so we'll talk a lot about him and his story in his life and and his the way he is capturing his own life on the page which I I agree I mean he's just in case you didn't know this is an Oscar winning screenwriter. This is one of the great writers of the last forty years is also as a person who didn't just write his own films but road scarface and Conan the barbarian and a number of other films over the years. So he knows what he's doing on the page, but he is also somebody who. If you look it the political thought not like a straight line where there is a left and a right. But if you look at it like a wheel like a circle, and if you go too far from one side of the circle to the other you can land. You may think you are liberal person and find yourself with right wing ideology or libertarian ideology and reverse can also be true and I think one of the reasons it's really hard to unpack not just what Oliver Stone says in interviews or what he even. Portrays in his documentaries but even when he puts in his films is it feels like he's constantly running around that track that circle of political thought and so he's actually a perfect figure for this moment where there is this desperation to find art that coincides with our political ideology or our sense of what the world should look like and as you said, Oliver makes a mess of that he really. is trying to he's contradicting himself in real time. He's contradicting the sensibilities of that kind of baby boomer antiwar mentality. But on the other hand, he's like an Avatar spirit animal of truth for certain kind of humanism and that sounds really kind of haughty. But I I think he really wants to representational person who is thinking about putting people before government business political structures, and it's complicated right? Because he's A. Essentially a wealthy well to do white man who was born in the immediate aftermath of World War. Two, and so he had so much opportunity to do the things that he wanted to do in a way that other people don't. So he's not he's just not a tidy figure for that pursuit of humanism. It's interesting that you said he's putting people in front of institutions and ideas and governments because I think that's true. But it's usually one percent, and if you look at his entire his filmography and and really I, think even if you look at how he says. A lot of political issues, but it's it's not. The, greater good. It's usually focused on one character who is often a man and quite often a white man it is and it is understanding history through a single person's experience. So it's like it's almost I. mean he certainly subscribes to a great man theory of history but at the same time as also reversing, which is like the the the one person's experience of history, which can be a really exhilarating in certain films that we'll talk about and really really misguided I find or not even misguided but just doesn't work and isn't illuminating and the way that he thinks it is. IN IN CERTAIN Aspects, and then also in certain cases, it can just be about himself and it is I. The thing that makes his. His memoir. So electric is that it really is self mythology and he is really trying to understand himself and trying to pin down that constantly moving wheel as you said simultaneously and and I really admire having access to that. I obviously read a lot of celebrity junk and and memoirs and. Interested in trying to have access to people's ideas and thoughts and understand their characters and most people won't give it up in that way and won't share and won't be as open and Massey at as as Oliver. Stone is and that's true of the book and that's true of politics for sure and it's it's making. The great man theory is is really relevant to this conversation not just because of the book not because of the film's but because it's a little bit unclear, it's a sort of a chicken and the egg or the proposition with him. Does he subscribe to those theories because we read about in this book, He is interested in the dramatic pursuit. He has a pretty clear understanding literally of how to tell a strong story and that story is usually through a homer like figure or a a habit like figure somebody who is you know on on an indomitable quest to achieve something that seems impossible he's he's really passionate about this and you know again, there is something kind of haughty about this but also he just he seems to come to a very sincerely and so he uses Jim. Garrison in. J. F. K. or he uses Jim Morrison in the doors or he uses Ron. Kovic. In born on the fourth of July as these avatars as these great men who are seeking to achieve something that no one else could even perceive as possible and I think Oliver Stone sees himself in a very similar fashion. He sees himself as this well, to do white guy who volunteer volunteers for the Vietnam War to explode his privilege and to understand the world in a hopefully deeper way,

Say something that no one saying I'm optimistic. I'm optimistic is as some of you may may or may not know my my father is a scientist and very rational. Rational guy and although yes, we've all been through a lot and there's a terrible news after terrible news. I really believe that science is going to come to the rescue I. Really do I believe that in my heart I believe that science is GonNa come to the rescue and that there's going to be something maybe even sooner than we think that's going to. Maybe be if not a vaccine and a really good palliative cure, and so I don't know I've just been trying to feel optimistic lately that yeah, we've got a social distance. We've got to wear masks, but I'm optimistic. I talked to people especially younger people that don't have a lot of frame of reference that just think we'll I. Guess. This is life now and I think it's not that's not. It's not going to be life. We've you know terrible things have happened before, and then I always say cheer up. Terrible things will happen again. Yeah and then they start saying. What do you mean like Oh kinds of horrible things that you can't even imagine thinking of covert a year ago? No, you weren't and here it is so don't you worry awful? Awful things are coming that you could never imagine so cheer up. Not many people want to keep talking to me after that. I am I am all joking aside I am optimistic. What do you guys think of that message? Yeah I love science I'm a big Fan of science I feel like we should just get out of its way as long as it's. Doing its thing you don't makes me crazy. I've been thinking about this recently there. People that are science deniers why I can't see it, so then I'm just GonNa take your word for it that it's true meaning. I can't see co Vader I. Don't know anyone personally who got Kovic so. Screw you. I'm going to a bar. What makes me angry is I would respect people like that more if they were anti-science across the board, but they're not. They're very happy to jump on a plane and go someplace right. They're. They're very happy to jump in their in their in their car, their truck to very happy to drink beer there really happy. There's a million things that are happy to do that. Are All basically the product of science? So they pick and choose? They're just choosing like I. Don't like this part of science so I'm not GonNa do it. They're more than happy to take advantage of all the science that went into. Do you know how complicated is to make beer? You need a nuclear reactor. Need plutonium. You need radium. It's a very complicated a beer. You drinking. I know I don't think that's right. Someone told me it was beer. Had It for a while? You're drinking the coolant from a nuclear power plant and my thyroid came out in my urine stream last night. And my urine stream is like a Lightsaber, so maybe I'm not drinking beer. It was this physicist I met about six years ago and I had never really tried beer before, and he said try this and I said this beer and he said. Sure, just drink as much as you can and have and I can travel through time. I can't give I out of my head of. Being like a lightsaber well, what's really cool is I went to. I was at a urinal. This is pre covid at a sporting event. And I was peeing in the urinal and I really try and get up close to the because I get self conscious about my my urine stream, which as we now know is ionized looks like a lightsaber hum, because of the plutonium I've been drinking. which someone told me was was beer as a prank I?

Getting a little sun feels good vitamin workout I. Imagine you working out without jerk out I've been working out in the backyard gosh. Your work out. I have to say and this is not meant to put you down, but I just couldn't imagine you like your workout. I felt like you'd be using that. Exercise Equipment. They show in the titanic. Sometimes you know that was from one, thousand, nine, hundred twelve I just pictured you having some sears and Roebuck nineteen eleven. Lung expand her. You know, do three of these every morning and breeding hip belt. Yes exactly the vibrating hip belt, which used to be I, got a chance I live very near. I'll tell you my exact address at the end of the episode. If you'd like to come by on the only celebrity that can do that because no one would come by. Perfectly safe, but I love I live right near or very close to will rogers the famed satirist and comedian who lived in A. Ville Star huge deal and a movie star, very funny, very talented guy, one of the biggest stars of the twenties and thirties, but he lived in a ranch house. That wasn't too far from where I am now and you get to tourists house in. It's kept exactly as it was when he died. Tragically in a in a plane crash, and so I've toured his house and they said to me you can. Anyone can take a tour there and they said Hey. Conan do you WANNA go upstairs? You seem like a big Fan and we'll let you go upstairs. And they said sure and I went upstairs and I went into. Will Rogers Bedroom and then they let me go and check out his bathroom and in his bathroom, which hasn't really been touched since the thirties or changed. Changed any way. He had one of those vibrant belts. He had a vibrant belt. which if anyone's watched an old three stooges or anything? Yeah, you see them. In one thousand nine hundred thirties movies. It really was people that wanted to lose weight thought if you strapped a big belt around, you like a belt that pretty much covered your entire abdomen and attached to a big machine, and then you hit it in the machine. Just jiggled the belt and your belly just jiggled. There in did nothing. People thought that this burned off the fat, but I love looking at these ideas that people had I mean I'm sure that people one hundred years from now. We're going to look at the stuff. We're doing now that we have on infomercials. Weird all you have to do is attached this electrical cord to your chest, and as you sleep, it burns just gonNA laugh at us. I think they'll do that about podcasting to. Hurt my feelings throwing stones at myself than. I think the PODCAST was. Very enduring format. It's very intimate. and. I'm just grasping at straws here. Yeah! I think it's going to be around in a thousand years, humans but podcast will. And the apes evolved past us will listen to podcasts. They'll all about bananas. Different kinds of bananas, and now you like them. So how's your summer going? It's fine I. do some social distance tanks now with my friends and I went to another French, I got a really bad sunburn. Some in a little bit of pain but I'm having a good time. Can I just say you always mock me because I wear a hat or put son stuff on or cover up? Yeah, and you always brag that. Armenian and Greek. You're sort of meant to live in the world and miss, Freak that can't so I find it very interesting that you got a sunburn. When you've more or less implied to me that that could never happen, you're right because I went there, and I was like I'm GonNa just sit and I'm GonNa put my feet in the pool for six hours at nothing's happened to me and then I got up and I've been an incredible amount of pain now like it hurts. I think it'll be okay I. mean I have no idea like everything's just read, and it's fine. It was a socially distance party. What were you six feet away from everybody? Yeah, we outdoors, yes! What why are you asking me all these questions I wanNA shame somebody. Feel you coming in hot today? Yeah, we'll always. Can I just say one thing Matt here? He goes coming in hot. No I'm not coming in hot, but I think if you go back and listen. You've said you're coming in hot. Times because you always come in hot then. You can't say you're coming in hot today. That is my actual setting. It's you that needs to change your settings because. You can't every time say hit coming in hot coming in hot I don't mean you're coming in hot for you. You're coming in hot for the base level of the rest of the world. I know and why would I if I wasn't social distancing which I was? Why would I stay on the PODCASTS? No, my friends and I were all like on top of each other and licking each other, and everyone was like first of all I wouldn't do that and second of all.

Of shows, and if you are really like a show, watch that show and really. Watch that show, and then right in that show style. Write a SPEC script, so we wrote and really try and write something that if someone saw it and I think to this day when we hire writers for our show. The thing that impresses me most is when I see a packet. And it's got a piece in it and I, think wait a minute. This could go. We could actually use. This doesn't mean rate if we could use it right now. That really makes you wanNA hire that person like if you look at it. And they ran a sketch or even in especially a repeating bit, and you think wait a minute, I would love to have who is this? Who is he? Who is she? You you really want them. So we wrote of some things that I think in the packet that we submitted. It ended up getting on the show once we were on. They gave us a tryout. We flew out. We spent we were both very frugal. We bought the worst car in the world, which is a nineteen seventy-three Assu Opal, which looked up later on I think the Isuzu Company decided. It wasn't technically a car and gave up on it. It is was hideous and we bought it at the airport and drove this piece of crap for years, and then we had a, we had a desk at work like a partners desk where I faced him, and he faced me. We shared this car. We shared a small apartment. We had no furniture, so we subscribe to the L. A., TIMES Then we would tie up the bundles with twine and use those to make seats 'cause. We. Didn't we kept thinking? We're going to get fired. We may have to go back to new. York, so let's be frugal. and then ended up being greg when I got married Greg read a toast. At the dinner the night before and the toast was brilliant because he just read from his. He found his diary from. The fall of nineteen eighty five minute literally had things in it like Conan and I today decided. Let's not spend any money just in case we get fired, so so we walked through Westwood. We stopped and we looked in a window. There was a large chocolate chip cookie in the window Conan said I'd really like to have that cookie. It'd be really nice to eat that cookie right now, and then I reminded him. Counting. We said we wouldn't buy anything like a cookie day I'm coming and said you're right. Greg and we walked away I. Hope. Sunday CONAN gets to have that cookie. Like what are we? We're like. The depression we were making union scale and We, were you.

Can try the screwball peanut butter whiskey Yup. screwball peanut butter whiskey. Okay, here's the story, because I know you want. The story gathered around made by a husband and wife duo with American whiskey and peanut butter flavor. The end result is savory and creamy with just a touch of sweetness. screwball tastes amazing all by itself it also elevates practically any cocktail to new heights Puerto over little ice at your coffee or to a top scoop of Vanilla, ice cream with it or top scoop of is. But I think it should also get. Make sure if you do get vanilla ice cream. That's top scoop. Meaning one of the best scoops you can get. A sounding good to you sonal. It's all right. No I think it's owner. The whiskey sounds great. You're you're reading. Ad Copy is I'm not reading. I'm speaking from the heart.

The founders have donated to several organizations including two hundred fifty thousand dollars to the United States. Bartenders Guild Foundations, bartender emergency assistance program well, that makes sense. Bartenders are hurting right now and one hundred thousand dollars to children of restaurant employees. That's a nice 'cause I. You know I'm I'm not a a massive whiskey drinker, but if I was going to have a whiskey, I like a little flavor in there, and I love the flavor of peanut butter, so peanut butter Whiskey would sound. Sound pretty good to me Matt. You've got some, don't you? I, do I have some. My parents gave it to me unrelated to this show. Is that true white? And then they look at you. I can see you on our zoom conference. Drinking it out of the bottle. That's delicious. Is it good? It really yeah that. Did they send? They didn't send that to sometimes. No, but I would love them too well, so they send me some I. Don't know maybe maybe and then you took it or you gave it to somebody who took my peanut butter whiskey. High that's one of the saddest things you can yell. Chuck my peanut butter. Make an alcoholic puppet on a kids show. And I was making a joke there, but of course we all drink responsibly screwball.

HBO Max: we checked it out
"To in the past. It's not give us fifteen bucks. You'll get a whole new world of programming instead it's keep subscribing to the HBO now Streaming Service because we just gave it a face lift and made it a whole lot better. I'm Jefferson Graham. This is talking tech. Let me fill you in Max's. Hbo Plus Movies TV series and cartoons from the Warner Brothers Library. Classic Hollywood and Foreign Films From The T. C. M. Film Library original animation and more now. Hbo Now just got a whole lot better. And for me since I was already subscribing. I have more of a reason to keep it. I like the programming selection. You may like it too if you have an apple TV or google chrome cast streaming device in the house but if you're like most people and get your streaming the a Roku or Amazon fire TV streaming player while you're out of luck for now. At and T. Which owns Warner media? Didn't make a deal with either. So it's either fork over thirty five dollars for chrome cast a hundred and fifty dollars for the Apple. Tv device or watch. Max on one of the newer Sony or Samsung. Tv's here's what you're gonNA find. Hbo IS PROMOTING. Heavily the complete collection of friends and the Big Bang theory at the top of the front. Page the Harry Potter films and others from the Warner Brothers Library including man and wonder woman Max is broken up into several hubs. This includes looney tunes cartoons. Adult swim in the cartoon network. Hbo MTC 'em some hubs are better than others. T is fully featured with classics Galore. Like the wizard of Oz gone with the wind and I really love this. The Complete Charlie Chaplin Film Collection Cartoon Network has just a handful of series like the power puff girls and dexterous laboratory. But it's missing some key titles like Johnny Bravo and courage the cowardly dog unlike the recent Disney plus launch which had hundreds of vintage animation from the bolt along with four current titles. Max has many of the best of bugs bunny porky pig and gang including a duck amuck corny concerto in gorilla my dreams but a big emission at least on the first day is the greatest looney tunes cartoon ever made. What's Opera Doc the? Hbo Hub is basically HBO now with. Yes. Every episode of Game of thrones the Sopranos Kirby enthusiasm plus more. But if you're looking for something outside of those hubs navigation is tough for instance. Max promised classics from the Hanna Barbera Library like the Flintstones and the jetsons an episode of Conan from the TBS Library

"Sleep is nature's bomb. I stood up in the theater. Went what people were like. Sit down? No they were the shut up. Sit Down Cues Yeah. This is long before he just filled. He discovered this. Mug with all the things that I would because Greg and I were writing partners and so talk about being sick of someone's bullshit. Greg was pretty much chained to me at the ankle from nineteen eighty five to nineteen ninety one. There's like a seven year period. There were he just heard my bullshit around the block and so he made a Mug for me filled with my idiocy and partner. I didn't realize it was that long. Yeah we were partner is we came out to L. A. and August of eighty five. And we didn't know anything and I remember us not knowing anything about L. A. So we thought Hollywood was the cool place where everyone lives. And who's been out here knows the wall Hollywood's a good place to go if you WANNA meet a down on his luck Spiderman with crotch rot. But if you lives there on purpose so greg. I looked at a map and we was like Hollywood. That's for us and we chose like Oakwood apartments and I think it was on Vermont in Hollywood like as Far East as possible and I remember showing up and really thinking that we were going to see the beginning of like Beverly Hills cop or palm dries everything you've seen in in in TV shows about someone going to L. A. And no we. We were horrified immediately. It has gotten better. Yeah we were both. We both shot within the hour. I think but we were together for all those early years of fumbling around I would say about two and a half years in L. A. Working on different shows or three years and me doing Improv at night and trying different things and I remembered me taking a job as a they need an improviser. I heard about this from someone somebody. Some kind of shady company was making promotional videos for a music industry convention. They were shooting at like way way out in the middle of nowhere and it almost like it was a porno but I never got called to those. And they they but I remember driving out in my really crappy broken down car and they said bring your own makeup and I didn't know anything about makeup so I just went to a drugstore to the women section and bought a compact. I bought like different stuff not knowing anything and just smeared it all over my face in a really hot car and put the makeup on. I mean drove drove through the Central Valley Clown desert for two and a half hours to try and find this place. And then did Improv. Yeah no air conditioning. This nine thousand nine hundred seventy seven nine union. I was paid and more makeup clip that surfaced a few years ago. Yeah Yeah I haven't I. Have you know what I have? I have a giant. Like what are those? Things called those giant bricks. They used to put into a three quarter inch tapes. Yes I have a three. This'll really date like young people listening to this. If if there are young people knew yes if you saw the I have this and it's in a box and I found it and I don't think the machine exists anymore. Play this the point is greg and I were together a long time and end and God bless that man. He did stress. That drove me crazy idea stuff that drove him crazy. But still one of the funniest humans you'll ever encounter is the unusual where where two members of a writing team both. That's true are super successful. You were both the Paul Simon's that's right. Wow Yeah with Simon and Simon wait. That's a detective show. So yeah it was it. It is always fascinating to me. That he's he's exactly the same person I think I people tell me. I have not changed. I've had a bunch of people who knew me and Greg I can tell you has not changed at all. Just he visited me just a couple of days ago because it was my birthday and he wanted to visit me in a responsible way in Greg. Greg was preparing for this pandemic in nineteen eighty seven. He showed up and man. He was wrapped. I could not see one inch of his skin anywhere. He had shirts towels wrapped around his head wearing thick glasses. He was wearing plastic gloves. He brought me a bottle of wine from my birthday and set it on the sidewalk and then backed away like it was a bomb. It was fantastic. It was fantastic. We have let's see we actually have a really great voice mail to play for you. Can we go ahead? I mean at this point Conan. You're trying to avoid your family. Hi Good afternoon my name is Jimmy Gouzer from Illinois and I had a question about CONAN's eared. I've been watching his interviews during quarantine on Youtube and facebook and I've noticed that CONAN has grown his hair but he hasn't grown out his beard and I love a man with a beard I love Conan and I love his beard from where he ward back two years ago. I thought he looked sexy. I I thought he was handsome. He's doing ask them. He's a very attractive man. So I WANNA know counting. Why didn't you grow out that handsome beard during quarantine? I'm a big Fan. I can't wait to go back to California so I can check out one of his shows one of his tapis. Thank you so much stay safe. Stay positive stay healthy and most of all love yourself. Thank you very much. My God that is that woman is so fantastic and very positive and clearly had a lot of caffeine. She is her name. She's very nice. And I just WanNa say thank you for that sunny that that will give you a copy of that voicemail. No she's I know. I WANNA make that. I WANNA make that my outgoing cell phone when people try to leave me a message. Hey I'm a big fan. The vet is really nice. I that was very sweet to hear. I'll tell you something. I have a bit of a thing where I have A. I don't know what to call it but a been there done that kind of mentality. Sometimes the beard was such an iconic thing. I mean I- conic sounds like A. Yes we all remember but at that moment in my career which was seminal and kind of important and I just grew that beard and it was kind of a thing then will ferrell demanded that I shared it and he shaved it in a really funny way on TV. And after that I felt like well. That's it for the beard. And maybe that's why I'm not doing it. I just felt like there's so many bits we've done where people say. How come you don't hey do that again and I think now we did that so now we have to try and think of something else so maybe I just have to grow mustache or eyebrows eyebrows? Way Out to the side and wax them so that they look like antenna by mustache. We're now Jesse. I need to get your opinion or do you like a beard or do you like the clean shaven. Look I personally prefer the clean shaven? Look but I mean the beard. I agree I think it had. It did have a little bit of a depression. Feel though so I don't think you're I think you're facing this new phase more optimistically What you're telling people is that unmedicated now and it's good. It's good to get the word out on medication. Yeah the beard was in lieu of medication. Let's just make that clear about her. 'cause she said why didn't you grow it out during isolate me past tense like it's over so she's Illinois so I think they`re. They're through it probably. That's the crazy thing. We have no idea when this is going to end. Still yes we do. We all know know exactly when the yes. Yes yes is this all just a trick Yeah I don't we don't know when it's going to end I'm really trying to get into. I know some people that are very good at getting into the zen of it's bigger than us. I do have a personality that there are many things about this. That do not suit me. Isolation the lack of working with a bunch of people constant laughter and constant reaffirmation though so those things I miss but I am really good. It's when things are bigger than me. I get very calm and I don't know it's sort of like when I was a kid and there was just a giant snowstorm. You're like well right. It's so much bigger than me. There's nothing I can do. Your kind of Powell's yeah. We'll see you know. Whoever your God is God will decide. I know it's almost a little bit of a relief in a way to just relinquish control because we're so used to having so much control in our lives and I think the important no you can't see this at home but talk reasserting over your environment. Yeah it's just my way to dominate. Well let's your junk. Oh it can't you can't afford that. I think this is my show. I'm just GONNA headphones off here. Jesse.

"The the fixes simple you play your greatest hits things you've mastered and then problem solved. I'm helping junk. And if he the one you'd be this quiet for this terrifying it's actually It's good for me to hear this but I'm not gonNA lie. It's painful to think that I've put so many people through and it's it's gotTa stop. It's clear to me that when we come back if we come back it's gotTa stop. Here's one thing I can stop. I don't think we'll ever stop well. Did you find it? Helps you hersal as a yeah. That's a good question. I don't know I'm too. I'm too flattened. I'm told ME FLAT. This understate that you were putting on a concert like someone no pay money. No no no I I I. I know I know it's doing I have to say yes. It probably helps me the day in and day out of going down to rehearsal before twenty seven years now. Is that right? Yeah I think having a guitar on and having my fingers busy helps but maybe going forward look. I think if you as the ghost of Christmas past and future come to me in the night you've shown me a horrifying vision and now I see it because I've been away from the show long enough to know that. Oh Shit. This is horrible for years. I've made people very unhappy with one of my habits and it's like finding out you have really bad breath after after twenty years and so yeah this has to change. I'm glad I'm I'm glad that this came up but I can't say let's put it this way. Scrooge did not get a good night's sleep that night and we're all going to have goose and you really. It took us being separated from you by many miles for this to come out. Yeah I know I think playing for kids that is caused this and your son going to to court because your home guitar playing that has brought this alter surface. I'm today I'm throwing away all my guitar. Which is really stupid. Because they're I should sell them. Give the money I know but I just love the idea that I'm going to throw. You'RE GONNA put the recycling bin. How many guitars do have I don't even know. And that is not because I'm some right rich guy who's a whole bunch of guitars. It's because for twenty seven years. People have been sending me a range of guitars from absolutely great cool guitars That are beautiful instruments to a guy in Sweden who made a guitar out of a bathroom scale he. He took a real like nineteen sixty s bathroom scale and then attached to guitar next to it and it's kind of players in play but hit but I said kind of and then it's hideous and decide I send it to. You decided to send it to me. And so Jimmy. Davino found me a place to keep them all so. I have literally a warehouse filled with guitars. That are puzzling. Just absolutely puzzling. And it's going to be like the end of citizen Kane when I go I was gonna be there's GonNa be people just throwing L. throwing insane like here's a toilet seat guitar. Here's a guitar. Made out of a dead a dead duck. Here's a guitar that's made yeah. Wouldn't exactly and tossing them onto a pile. My last words will probably be bathroom. Scale GUITAR AND REPORTERS WILL SCURRY AROUND. Trying to figure it out. Great Mystery A. We'll speak into guitars. Someone actually asked about the guitar behind you. We see during the show. Let's assume that's not made from bathroom? Quit now that's a good guitar right. It's called a Gretch Tennessean as the model year is that's a nineteen sixty four gretch Tennessee. And if you're a Beatles fanatic like I am. You'll know that that is the year and model that George played on the Second Beatles tour of America. That's the first electric Atari ever bought. I bought it from a friend of mine. Named Randy Clipper at the time. I think I bought it in one thousand nine hundred six for six hundred dollars. Which at the time was like a fortune to me And the guitar is worth a lot more than that now. I've always prized it. It is a Chet Atkins Model Chet Atkins being one of the great players and producers in Nashville back in the day so when Chet Atkins was on the show I showed it to him and he put his initials on the back. Initial the head stock. He's no longer with us. Which means the guitar is even more valuable Conan. That's terrible Tara. Tara I ha- I had this guitar with me at certain it live and it was back in my office the day that George Harrison walked in to the writer's room very late at night and was hanging out there for maybe a total of six minutes but it was just such a big deal in my life and I remembered contemplating. Oh boy going down to my office and getting the guitar and showing it to him and saying look. It's a gretch Tennessee. And like the one you played in the second one thousand nine hundred sixty four tour with Beatles but something in me said he doesn't give a shit now which was good. I had that that's a very mature that yes. That is very mature. Yeah he was also Great restraint he was quite inebriated at the time to go out with Lorne. Michaels is a piano there in the conference room and he sat down and started playing the piano. And Al Franken as kind of a joke. But al I think also maintains to this day that he really did think we needed to get our work. Done came out and said quiet and likes slammed slammed the the cover of the piano down. Just missing Georgia's fingers and George was startled and stumbled away a frightened because it was the first time in his life now. Let's contrast to George Harrison beadle playing music for a bunch of comedy writers for a second and being told to shut the fuck up and me doing it for twenty six years badly according to Jesse and not and no one can say a word. What what is there a God? Could there be could happen. I don't think so. I think people have said things in their own way. Listen to the guitar. Plane is not stopping that I know I have. I have one myrow. Slava says hi. I'm a huge fan of the show in the podcast. Love what you guys are doing for Conan at home. I'm stuck in lockdown. In France in a small student room by myself and watching Conan is really writing my days. My question is the following Howard guest interviews getting recorded these days as far as I understand. Those are zoom calls. But how do you get the feed and put it together? You're asking a monkey how to build a space shuttle. That's a real and really glad era. What is it Myra SLAVA MIR MIRA MIRA in France. That's a really good question Myra Mira. I hope I'm saying that correctly which is why I'm saying it's so many different ways than the chance to get it right. They are zoom calls. What we do is people much smarter than I and much more. Tax Tech Savvy than I have a way of recording them and basically. That's it. I am invited to zoom meeting and I clicked on it and get on the zoom meeting and then whoever it is gets on with me from wherever they are and then it's really fascinating because some people have like a very nice presentation. They've given it a little bit of thought. Like Kelly was in a very nice brightly lit room and she was wearing the nightgown that she wears all day around the house and it was like talking to an angel it was really and then other people I mean. I talked to Joe Mikhail yesterday and he was wearing giant headphones and he looked he was backed into a corner of the garage where they shot everybody on Saint Valentine's Day mass and it was it was it was giving him shit the whole time. So those are just you get what you get like? You talked to somebody. And they've ever given given it some thought or they've given it no thought I haven't minded doing the interviews over zoom because I feel like you can eventually get the same kind of. It's not as good as being in person with the person but it's you can get into the pretty good rhythm so those I don't mind I find doing comedy and a complete vacuum to be unnerving. Just because if I shoot up myself with the iphone which I do for most of the comedy I've got to do it and then upload it to a thing called like frame I o Sweeney. You're familiar with this whole process but to actually and so I- shoot it myself and I go through fifty takes on my own because I'm so self hating and like no I could do better. I could do better than I finally get one I like and I send it out. You Watch it upload for like ten minutes and then finally it goes into the ether and then I don't hear anything and then I'll contact Matt. O'brien the head writer and say what did you think he'll go. It's okay all right well drumming do it again. He he hasn't watched it. I really miss the immediate feedback. There's the audience there's a well it's not just the audience. It's IT'S HUMANS. There's a group intelligence. There's something I've noticed it. Work over the years which is polly. Davis. The booker will come to me. And she'll come into my office and she'll say this is kind of a weird idea but you know. What do you think about having the ghost of Richard Nixon on the show? You know some some. I'm just making that up. Obviously by said no he said No. What do you think of having the celebrity acts on the show? And I'll say well that's Kinda strange. What did Jeff? Ross say? And she'll say that producer say he said ask you and I'm like no no. No no no no. Let's get three people in a room literally three people in a room and ask the same question and they'll be a group response that will tell us. Exactly what the answer. It's you know there's a thing when you get a bunch of human beings together where you tend to get the right answer. It didn't happen with the Vietnam. War was all done by. That was all done by zoom. We're talk that I find to be. Frustrating is just to be sitting here and thinking. Maybe it's funny. If I do this thing and then I do it and then I look at it and I'm not sure and then I send it to one person and they say yeah but they haven't run it by anybody else and you just everything takes forever. It's slow every. Yeah it's the whole everything. Every step of the process has been slowed down. Yeah just enough to be a pain but I mean it's definitely things have definitely. I think there's been a big learning curve. Oh I thought of an idea. And that's the other thing too is I keep thinking of ideas and then realizing I can't do that because it violates social violates social distancing but you know there's this thing of talk show hosts being interrupted by. They're adorable children and the host is they're like okay. We'll trump today and then the kid comes in the room they're like you. Rasco and the kids like Daddy. What's happening and everyone online goes? Yay. Isn't this amazing. And I thought wouldn't it be great? I would love to do Paracha fat where I'm doing doing my zoom show or doing my show and then what I wanted to go my God. My son just burst into the room and slightly. Tilts the camera so that you could see but it's Andre Dubus whenever writers and he's playing my like thirty eight year old strange son who I had by another woman. This is all made up by another woman but never acknowledged him and I go like you. Rascal use use SCAP. Can't you see I'm doing a show right now? And he goes with the fuck. You told me to come over here. You told me to come over here now. I don't even know over here in the first place. You NEVER ACKNOWLEDGE MOM. You never paid for my fucking college. You knock her up in nineteen eighty seven and then you totally fucking. Don't ever take responsibility. And I'm like you Hugh Rascal. I thought that would be a really funny sketch. And then I realized I can't have in the same room as an actor especially if I'm screaming at him. Why don't you have Andre? Move in quarantine in your house room for fourteen days and play your son. Every resentment will become real. We.

"That you know who I am? You know what I'm in show business. I don't do housework. I'm the least handy person that ever lived so yeah I think I'm doing my share trying to. I'm trying to help out but I have found that room where I do the show which my study. It's filled right now where I am now. You can't see but this is the if you're watching the shows while we're in quarantine it's where I shoot and there's a little guitar behind me and it. Mustn't you can't see us at all the notes for all the guests that I've been interviewing on zoom are all over the floor. Guitars are just lying. Piecemeal pieces of lumber. I don't know there's props from different bits. I've done it. It's an absolute horror show. You really don't clean up installed giant here not in here. I don't know a hoarder. The rest of the House looks good. But this and this is usually a nice. This is usually a nice room but it looks the ads very well. We have a lot of fan questions. People have written and some of the question we still do. We still have fans I do you do. I mean it vacuum. I'm in the quarantine and because I'm not getting my daily. You know affirmations from people pay Conan Houria Lake the show. Hey Conan your hair really does look weird in person because I'm gonNA complete vacuum just hearing that we have fans is delaying me right. Well yeah because usually you come into the office and you get compliments from your employees Bossou. Yeah good wine a great show last night. Yeah and you all say it as you're being handed your check good job with the thing you do boss a man. Some of that cue card reading was Ma top Jabarin. What do you miss going to the office though I mean? I think I've gotten that sense from you. That some of the easiest things that you hated before you might know. I didn't hey I'd never I love? I do believe the only reason I'm in comedy is so that I can be around funny people and abused them and I I I love no I really do love just the group effort. I love that part of it. I'm I'm one of six kids and I grew up in kind of a a scrum and I like it. I really like the jostling back and forth and the constant in time physical jostling if I size someone up I think physically they can handle it. I'll start wailing away punching kicking biting and I think that's my that's my right. It's only recently that I've been informed that that hasn't been legal for forty years But I I do miss it. I really miss being there and have always needed to get up and go some place to do whatever it is. I have to do so I am not built to to stay home. I'm I'm not and I think you guys both are a big part of the Conan without border shows. No one was even asking us to go to other countries. No-one required it. No one you know. It was not on anyone's agenda. And we figured out a way to will ourselves to get to go to other parts of the world often at very inconvenient times but I love it and I miss that dearly and so. I'm I'm hoping that when this is done I'm hoping we can get back to that world and we'll probably start very cautiously. It'll be without Borders in Los fee. Les Ha Los Angeles Drives fifteen miles to a slightly different area of Los Angeles and encountered Spain. Yeah but it'll still be full of wonder for us. We'll be like Oh my God. What's God hipster? Who's taking three Improv classes? Do you have a A weekly schedule I mean. Do you get up and try to like keep to a okay. I want to get up at the same time and you know. I think I could do better about that. One of the things that I find maddening is that I like to know what the parameters are for my work meaning my working and then when my not working one of the things that's happened under quarantine is that Bell Book Is Zoom? Call for nine thirty in the morning with Kaley Guoco or Adam Sandler. It'd be like okay so at nine thirty I gotTa have to be on. But then they'll be this two or two and a half hour period of time when I'm not on when I'm supposed to power down but then it's time to shoot zoom sketch with SONA at one o'clock in the afternoon then it's time for Zoom Conference call where we talk about zoom sketch. We just did and figure out what the at. Its are possibly. Then there's two hours of nothing but then shoot wrap around so I know anyone. Listening right now is like thinking. I'm a big baby and I am but it's just the everyday it's different and so on your energy levels like you get you get warmed up and then you have to just cooler hills for two hours. The same scheduled for twenty five years pretty much right exactly and so and the schedule was always used like you could see it slowly revving up as the during the day. I would rev up slowly and it's knowing when do I take the cocaine you know? Does the shows at four thirty. Take take the coke it for ten but they don't properly though. Yeah no. Yeah and so now. I'm having a cocaine at breakfast. I'm coming down but then it's time for more cocaine and it's just it's just it's just your dealer doesn't mind. The dealer is very responsible about social distancing he wipes down all the kkob leaves it at the front in front on the front door. It's completely wiped down. Do you want to hear some fan questions? Yes yeah okay you don't even have to. This is your show so you get to say now. It's time for fan quit. Hey you know what? It's time for questions theme music. Here's a question. Have you taken up any weird hobbies while you're at home or are you just driving your family? Cressey? That's a good question okay. There's two things that I do. I wouldn't say that they're all that new but they've definitely accelerated. One is teaching myself songs on the guitar off Youtube and playing them over and over and over and over again to get it right. That drives some people crazy. If you're curious exactly what recently I forget how it came up. But somehow the Paul McCartney's Solo Song Junk from nineteen seventy came up and it's an instrumental version and just decided. I've got to learn that exactly right so I watched several different youtube versions and then is honed in on the one that made sense to me and didn't need a cape. Oh you could play it. Naturally on the UN. I've played it a hundred thousand times and I think I've made people crazy and also it used to be a really pretty song to me now and now it just sounds like madness and the other thing is really nerdy is I found for a long time. People used to make Balsa Wood model planes. And it's something people did. My Dad did it. In the Nineteen Thirties. You would make an forties. He would make Balsa Wood planes. I made one years ago and it was really hard and I swore never to do it again. Going through my study I found an old BALSA Wood model of a British Sock with camel and I was like okay. I mean do it so I am. It is incredibly frustrating because it's old brittle Balsa all the pieces break. You've gotta fix them and you've got to try and end. It's incredibly complicated. The directions are not helpful. And so yeah. I'm doing something disintegrating as you do. It as I do it it's disintegrating. I want something that I can physically hold in my hand. It's a result of this right memento. Yeah exactly I want Tom. Hanks's soccer ball. This is my Wilson. I want this thing I want to be able to. If someone says to me what did you do? During the quarantine of of twenty twenty it was of any value. I'll say well I did a whole bunch of shows and they'll go no seriously. We saw those. What did you do that and go? Okay what about this and I'll hold up what will probably be pretty crappy but very intricate Balsa Wood model of high of hot glue. Nineteen seventeen sop with junk when excited to hear junk. 'cause I mean we're all very familiar with your current repertoire. Yes songs because you like to play in the outreach Yup and treat us to concerts in the something. You'd like to say that I'm just saying we. I've heard you know. Let me ask you guys because instrumental no singing. Let's get into it okay. Sure and I and if nothing else be honest. I always have a guitar on it rehearsal. I'm not telling you guys I'm telling human beings listening and I tend to perpetually play different songs and run through them and I think people hate it but we need to have this out in the open. Sure I mean. I think we've had out in the open and nothing wish you wish you guys wish. I wouldn't do it well we don't I it's they're just. There comes a certain point where it feels like. We're being held hostage after rehearsals over and you're still playing and it's like you look around like we can we? Can we leave? You can go. We can go. Oh Yeah why? You should have asked said ages ago or sometimes it comes in the middle of hersal. I guess that's really the oh I always thought of it. Is Music Concerts over? They play music over so cels over and it's live music but you're you can go let me ask you a question be honest. Yeah if I was better at it. Would it be more tolerable? Is that the issue. I JESSE JESSE YOU GO I. I mean it's sure yes. Yeah it would be better. Well we're also hearing like you're just playing the guitar portion of a song and so it's hard to get the full because it'll be a song that has like a full band and then we're just hearing the guitar and that's a good point just entire band. This is excruciating. This is I mean. I love this. This is like we're digging into an infected wound and in it. Plus that's been built up for like nine years is coming out and the stench is overwhelming. I'm just not good enough. Is that the problem Jesse. Just say it. I mean you know. We're hearing someone practice guitar. That's what it is. It's you're hearing a person practice and so so.
"conan" Discussed on Inside Conan: An Important Hollywood Podcast
"The judge the judge would immediately rule in our favor. And I'd be like Okay Code and you can come by Thursday nights for one hour and Sunday for two hours and then gavel and your son reserved the right to go back to court to rescinded entirely. Oh Yeah Oh yeah. We're all getting through it however we can. Yeah and Hey. Do you have with all your movie watching. Everyone's exchanging movie tips. But is there anything that sticks out in your mind? People Watch this well one of the movie. That was a huge deal for me when I was growing up and I think it still holds. Up is a movie from nineteen sixty three that starred every major comedian. At the time it's called. It's a mad mad mad mad mad mad world and it was a massive movie when it came out it literally has. I don't think a single major comedy star wasn't in this movie and this man it holds up. It does yes it does hold up and I when I was a kid. They would show at once a year and my dad would let us. We weren't allowed to watch TV during the week but he was watch TV that night. It counted as like an educational special. I showed it to my son and he loved it so much. He then insisted we screen it for his sister. So we did that and so you end. He were nervous while she watched. Yeah exactly I mean. There's a lot of pressure when you tell ya I'll tell you this we were. It's so much pressure to recommend a movie just before the quarantine went into effect like two weeks before the quarantine went into effect. There was this family down the street. That's very nice. And they invited us over to their house for dinner and then they said even think of movie. We should watch now. I didn't know this but I've been telling Liza for while we should have the kids watch the pianist. Because it's a very good you know I think depiction with Adrian Brodie of What people in Poland went through when the Nazis occupied and it's rough? But it would be. I think a good for our kids to see that and I didn't know this but she took my recommendation for our kids and recommended it to them for the big screening and it was a very festive occasion. And so we all go downstairs one in the woman we go into their room that has a big TV and she's like okay. Well Liza said you want it Conan that you wanted the pianist look to lies it and went wait? I meant that for like and she was like. Oh I thought you meant for everybody and I'm like no and then they start to screen it and these were such upbeat happy people and the next thing you know. It's just a litany.
"Here's the editor of Lens. Work Publishing Bruce Jensen. Let me confess right here at the beginning of this podcast that it's not always necessary to know where you've been in order to look ahead and know where you're going but it's awfully useful sometimes to know the history of what it is that you're about to attempt and to know how other people have tried to do what you're about to try to do and to learn from them as they say if. I've seen farther than others is because I've stood on the shoulders of giants. What would this in mind? You can imagine my reaction when the following story occurred. I was attending a photo review session. I was doing reviews there and I was looking through a body of work from a young woman and in the course of normal conversation talking about her work. I said well. This work reminds me a lot of the work of Edward Weston which I intended sort of a compliment but also to indicate to her that what she was doing wasn't necessarily as new and innovative and revolutionary as she thought it was and I was absolutely nonplussed. When her response was who's Edward Weston she had previously explained that she had an MFA in photography. So I wasn't quite sure how to respond to the fact that an MFA graduate in photography had never heard of Edward Weston and didn't know who he was explained a little bit about Edward Weston and the history of photography and she then explained that in the program that she was involved in she did not have to take the history of photography as that was an elective in her program. And I I suppose that's okay but as you can imagine. I was a little bit discouraged by that. But I've softened over the years and I realized that maybe maybe there's more to this than meets the eye because the problem is there's no limit to that train of thought. Okay so maybe you've heard of Edward Weston but you haven't heard of Mortenson okay maybe you've heard of Mortenson but you haven't heard of Ph Emerson. How far back do you go? How much knowledge do you have to have? How obscure a photographer is necessary. In order for you to have what might be considered a legitimate excuse for not ever having heard from of course. Edward Weston's very famous photographer but fame is also something that is curious in this regard. For example I just recently discovered of novelist from the nineteenth century named J S Fletcher. I'd never heard of J S Fletcher and turns out. He was during his lifetime practically the most popular crime novelist of his generation. Rivaling Sir Arthur CONAN doyle and Sherlock Holmes. And all of that J S Fletcher wrote two hundred thirty some odd books and I just discovered I'd never heard of him never heard him referred to in any conversations but yet in his day he was incredibly popular so the farther we look back in history the more some people are going to be obscured by nothing more substantial than time and collective memory that does not however mean that photographic literacy is unimportant in fact. I believe photographic literacy is very important. And here's a good demonstration of why I think so a few weeks ago as in my local library looking through some of the books. They had for sale as part of their fundraiser. And I found an interesting older volume called the reader's digest reader. It's an anthology selection done by Theodore Roosevelt. Not The president. But the president's son I think Published in nineteen forty. The president died in one thousand nine hundred ninety nine so I'm assuming it's Theodore Roosevelt junior who died nineteen forty four. According to Kapiti he anyway so Theodore Roosevelt Junior along with the editors of Reader's Digest. Put together this election published. This book and Roosevelt explains in the forward that he'd stumbled across a box of old copies of Reader's digest which tempted him and he says and I quote. I sat reading back copies for hours every time I finished an article which was off my main course in which I shouldn't have taken the time to read. I thought that I'd read only one other well. At least only one another and then another short run that followed it and another subject piqued my interest and lured me on. Eventually he continues. I dipped into an issue ten years back. But here the interest was even greater the forgotten world came into being not reminiscent Louis but with touches of unmistakable reality. I was astounded to find. How much of the past decade? I'd actually forgotten and how much more I remembered only vaguely. Yesterday's heroes and manners changing social complexions penetrating vignettes tell the story of Art Politics Science and business to find. These things is to have passed before ones is the cavalcade of American Life. And as you refresh your memory. Here's the key phrase by the way Roosevelt says and as you refresh your memory you improve your present perspective. The current scene gains new significance. Close quote what a marvelous way to look at work from the past and couldn't everything that he said about these articles he was finding in old copies of Reader's Digest. Couldn't they apply equally? Well to looking back. At the history of photography that is to say if it's true for the stories in Reader's Digest. Wouldn't it also be true for photography and it motivated me to go back and look through some of the jewels that I have in my photographic library book that I haven't pulled out for a while and I was amazed at what I found for example? Some of those books that I may be purchased thirty or forty years ago seem much more relevant today than they did back then because they were looking ahead in such a way that now in the benefit of hindsight we can see how right they were. And how brilliant? The photography was in. How far ahead of their time? Those photographers were other books. Do don't fare as well. There are others that I have in my library that I looked at from thirty and forty years ago that now I sorta scratch my head and say I wonder why I was so motivated to purchase those books in either case as Roosevelt said the current scene gains new significance. So there's a reason to look back at what other photographers have done. And what the trends in photography have been and we need to recognize that not only is there value but there's no end in that because new photographers from the pastor. Being discovered all the time their archives are being uncovered think. Vivian Maier and that kind of story. But also there's a lot of people a lot of historians who are doing research and discovering really terrific photographers who weren't popular in their time. Maybe they had no audience very small audience and now in the perspective of time we can look back at their work and see. How really terrific was so the idea of developing photographic literacy as a part of our creative life I think is incredibly valuable. And here's another example of why while I was doing all of this digging through my library and looking back I ran across a reference to Henry. Fox Talbot's the Pencil of nature which I had heard about thirty or forty years ago I've known the existence of this very very historically important publication but I never actually looked at it or read it and partly because I didn't know that it had ever been published although I have no doubt that it probably has been
Trapped In Wuhan During COVID-19 | Jen Knight
"Gen nine says that she won the in laws lottery when it comes to Chinese husband's parents but luck wasn't on our side this past January when a day after she arrived in her husband's hometown just outside of Wuhan for a Spring Festival celebration. The Chinese Government started shutting down all transit lakes into and out of the area effectively trapping her at ground. Zero of what would soon come to be known as the covert Nineteen Corona virus outbreak. She was as she easily admits terrified and filled isolated but what helped her feel less alone was participating in a study. That has china-based ex. Pats how they were feeling during the crisis and through two months of lockdown and plus two weeks of self isolation in an apartment in Shenzhen. Her notions of home have shifted. Or maybe she was just being made aware of a ship. That had already taken place. This is a really great conversation. And I'm thankful we were able to get this glimpse of what life was like for Ex pats in China as the global pandemic first emerged. I hope that you learn as much from her story is ided. Please sit back relax. Enjoy my conversation with JEN night. Gen night welcome to migratory patterns. Thank you so much for having me. Where is home so and I thought about how to answer this question. I came up with three answers. Three different places. One would be the place where I you know grew up and was raised which would be suburbia midwestern suburbia so a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin and a second place. That is home. Would Be San Francisco Bay area where I lived for eight years before I moved abroad and where my family is now. Located is in the North Bay and then the third place that I came up with it feels like home would be where I am right now. Which is my apartment in Shenzhen China? Where my husband is and my apartment is and jobs and life. I think in the first person with three answers. Oh really pretty sure. It's always interesting. Everyone's unique and I love how people will somehow work in where they're from originally some people you know there are few who like where I am now and all that stuff but I think the first TRIFECTA. I think if you'd asked me a few years ago it would have been just too but as I've gotten a little bit older I felt more strongly connected to my roots in a way and so I really wanted to add that third one in about where I came from because I think it's so important It's something that I wanted to leave behind when I left there at the age of eighteen nineteen. I was like goodbye. I Never WanNa see you again suburban Midwest. So let's talk about that so so suburban Midwest. Where exactly was that so it was in? It's a suburb of Milwaukee Wisconsin Like on the north side of town and it was it was a nice place to grow up and I've gone back a few times over the years. My family doesn't live there anymore. So the only real pull. I have our friends and people. I know who still live there but I found the last time that I returned which would have been seven years ago I think about. I felt I really felt the sense of home. It was so interesting so when you ask that question. That immediately came to my mind. That's interesting so you said you were looking to get out of there at eighteen. What was that all about? Was that Just sick of suburbia type thing? It's kind of an archetype in in the US. Yeah I was. I was always ready to get out from a pretty young age and my friend and I we just pointed at a map and there was Seattle and we had one friend who lived there who said we could sleep on his floor and we sold all of our stuff and bought backpacks and took the train for three days to Seattle the train. That's awesome. I love the train still was school. You were going to college or you just get out and I was just getting out. Although I ended up studying my undergraduate was in Washington state so I did live there for a number of years but interestingly it never felt like home so that is interesting so After so how did you get from? Let's say Seattle because that's kind of where you can set off on your journey. How did you get from Seattle to where you are now? What was that like? Well I my family had relocated to the San Francisco Bay area and I visited there one time before and felt really like a strong Paul to San Francisco and I went through some personal problems in While I was living in Seattle and I ended up packing up and moving and decided to relocate there and I just loved it I mean I had an amazing eight years living in San Francisco and I remember driving my used Acura over the Golden Gate Bridge like crammed with all of my stuff and I really felt that sense like this is going to be my home for awhile. Kinda cool this kind of cool so then you went to San Francisco. So what motivated jumped from San Francisco to overseas? That'd be fair. I Guess San Francisco can kind of feel like overseas from suburban Milwaukee. Well yeah so I made the first jump to Seattle and then from Seattle to San Francisco and I think San Francisco for me. I feel like I just had done it. I don't know how else to explain it. I just felt like I was John. Like I had done everything that I needed to do. There I had an amazing time. I met amazing people. I had incredible experiences. It's a beautiful place to live. There's so much to do. There was such a buzz. You know the entrepreneurial seen everything there when I was living there but I did feel like my time there was complete and I felt really unsure about what to do next and I ended up going to New York for a while and I went back to the Midwest for a while and I was really torn about my next move and sort of out of nowhere. The opportunity to teach in Shanghai came up and they said we have this job for you. You have two weeks to get here and I just went for it. What was the job? It was teaching in a school there but it was kind of a startup situation where I would be helping them. Start an American program within a Chinese school so it was a lot of curriculum development and teaching As well as some other like Adleman kind of stuff. It's a great way and so did you study to be a teacher when you're teaching in the US before you left. Yeah I had a California teaching credential and I got my master's from San Francisco State University so when I moved to San Francisco that was. That was the reason why was for a job that I got in Oakland Public Schools. So my background is very heavily in education is a teacher and I know what you guys do. So good on you for that work. Is You know you? Kinda got out at San Francisco. Probably right at the right time. It's just San Francisco to me. I've been there several times over the last few years last several years and San Francisco from to me feels like that really cool band. That sounded awesome but then sold out immediately and not quite as cool anymore. I love that analogy. Yes I could not agree more so so you hit China and did you say was shot high. Yeah Shanghai is where I lived I so for four years. Wow you've been bouncing all over the place where you did you. Did you go to Thailand for Awhile? Yes so after we were in Shanghai Shanghai four years we lived poop hat Thailand for two years and then we just moved back to China. Shenzhen last August. Well what great timing I actually right now. I'm pretty happy to be in Shenzhen overall right now I mean you know. Obviously we're this is the time of the time of Corona virus right now and it China. Ironically when the outbreak I happened so many people were streaming out of the country. And now there's tons of people who would love to be able to go back because they got a handle on it I it's Conan and argue at the methods but They've worked yes. Yes and I was at the epicenter of all of that so I I rode the roller coaster.
Coronavirus travel: Visitor quarantine in Florida, Hawaii, and Alaska
"I just saw this that big vacation states like Florida Hawaii Alaska are saying there's a visitor quarantine tell us what that means well it is a record here it basically means if you show up in a hole I will treat you to stroll by ship or by air or you drive to Florida or fly to Florida same thing with Alaska you're really going to a self imposed fourteen day quarantine but but it's it's not not eating differently when you think about it then you know bring in illegal fruits and vegetables you are the illegal fruit and vegetable in this case so please don't go they came into a little bit late they should have done a little earlier but there's a reason now why airlines like Ryanair is no longer flying to the mainland and then they basically cut out all their service in the in the same thing will soon happen at least in terms of flights down requested between where I am right now in New York and Florida so you know it's interesting because you also heard Florida governor Ron DeSantis talk he issued an executive order it initially was criticized for not forgiving the beach is open for spring break but now he's saying if you're gonna fly in from New York New Jersey or Connecticut you need to self isolate for fourteen days because they're seeing people from New York which is the epicentre in America of this virus right now travel down to Florida to try to get out of the big city where people are on top of each other it makes sense but they are trying to make sure that it doesn't cause a problem there well good luck enforcing that show quarantine says who who's gonna stop in and stop me what they really should do and it's going to happen very soon take a look what's going on in New York in the governor's order here on the governor's order in California and your own governor Eloy sooner or later every state's going to have to do this tomorrow how many cases there reporting because the food was good but what I'm understanding is worries whether but maybe been so few cases reported in what states would say like West Virginia is because they don't have the testing done where you have testing the obvious you're gonna have more cases reported but in terms of how it relates to travel what we're really looking at now it's on the drawing board no announcements have been made is a possible shutdown of domestic air service in this country yeah and the number the airlines would love to have that happen simply because from an economic point of view they can't sustain the traffic loads they're getting a fair averaging only twenty five percent load factors on their flights the reason why the airlines are continuing to fly domestically has nothing to do with us it has to do with how the airlines gotten business when I first started back in the nineteen thirties it's called hall in the U. S. mail and if they can come up with an alternative to do that then there's every reason to believe they're going to try to shut down that service completely enough American Airlines converted one other passenger planes to do is go to an all cargo plane and for the first time in thirty years American Airlines actually flew a cargo flight because most the time when they're taking in the mail it's in the same baggage holds your luggage and thought about that it's some interesting to see our people still flying I mean you file the times you've been on a plane recently I have not I'm I'm heating the governor's order I'm I'm I'm staying in place yesterday I'll give you an example delta air lines's park six hundred airplanes so many planes parked you literally had to close a runway in Atlanta just to hold the planes that were parked up and yet yesterday JFK whatever flights are operated by delta we're averaging about thirty percent load factor that is funny actually unsustainable so the answers to your question yes there are people flying but not very many that the TSA has reported you'll love this and eighty six percent drop in the number of passengers screened for the first time if anybody does fly no long lines of the TSA but you know that's an unintended consequence I'm sure yeah kind it is and I I guess people who are already have bought their travel they they bought their tickets to a cruise or airline of the already planned travel for spring or summer what do you advising those folks to do you're hanging on to those tickets you know you're you're you're wondering maybe even a week or two ago you thought you'd still take that trip now looking less certain well let's be realistic here in terms of time frame if you're holding a ticket for anything now between now and may fifteenth or even may thirtieth your flight your cruise is probably not going to go now the airlines will tell you at this moment because their computers have been reprogrammed that that April twenty first flight is still scheduled to go well you know what the Titanic was still scheduled but the bottom line here is as we get closer to those dates and we haven't really mitigated those of the virus curve those flights will cancel so my advice to everybody is if you're holding a ticket for anyone of those flights don't cancel it now because the airlines will then say you're canceling it based on your decision wait until the airlines cancel and then don't just settle for a voucher insist on a full refund because this was it your decision you didn't wake up one morning just capriciously decide you'd want to go the bottom line is you you you contracted for service you did not get you deserve a full refund because right now is that what's happening Peter if you if you tried to call up and say Hey I'm not gonna travel it end of April mid April whatever it is you we don't are you getting vouchers are you seeing people get refunds well it's a case by case one by airline cruise line by cruise line situation well given example of Southwest Airlines the original program in place it's been program put in place for years would be three basically put everything that you put let you pay for into a a separate fund and then you use that phone to fly for the next year but eventually the essentially with the with the once talk about now that the airlines are desperate to do what hold on to their cash however other airlines have been something else Qantas if they give you read that they give you a voucher now we'll give you a voucher worth ten percent more than what you paid for your ticket thank you your user ticket but let's be real here I'll give you an example in the city of Dallas I'm just using this as an example eighty seven percent of people who flew within Dallas who flew on American Airlines last year only for the airline once these are road warriors are frequent flyers their leisure travelers who say that their hard earned dollars to take that one annual trip why would you hold on their money per year that's just not fair it's not right so if you're listening to this right now and you're one of those people and the other one only once you do a voucher keep calling back ask for a supervisor or call my show when we didn't know it we will give you information on my show on Saturday as to how you can try to get that refund because right now this is totally unfair while the government is bailing out the airlines with cash why should the airlines bail you out I saw that that looks like of them so they there is a package I think their loans to the airlines not grants and that's what I've heard they did government can take stake in your company Boeing has said it doesn't want to accept any government stake so they may not even take the aid that's offered how do you feel about this whole package if you had a chance to take a look at it Peter I have been moved to start with the airlines for starters here I have no problem in defining the airlines as critical to our supply chain in this country and to our infrastructure travel and transportation and so if they're going to give them either these grants or these loans there's every reason to expect and to demand conditions and those conditions the way beyond without the eggs it is it was it was do stock buybacks it has to do with how do we move forward from this are we still gonna do these draconian well you know change please enter Conan rebooking flea season make everything non refundable and it's it's it's it's terrible thirty five billion dollars last year was earned by airlines just on ancillary fees and it had nothing to do with actually flying the airplane so bottom line here we need to see I don't think we will see right now because everybody's moving so quickly on this but sooner or later we need to see a consumer component of consumer protection component anything that's that that is attached to a financial bailout for the airline I would agree with that the other thing we keep that keeps coming up is people saying what if I get sick well it was so then this time when so many people are getting these unexpected illnesses what what what rights would you have with an airline to get a refund well first of all let's let's talk about travel insurance the travel insurance companies are very good at trying to get you to buy the insurance is actually go online to make your reservation otherwise hard to complete you can't complete the transaction unless you opt in or out to the insurance without understanding what it covers but most importantly without understanding what it doesn't cover and right now for example you can't get fire insurance after your second four catches fire and guaranteed that almost every travel insurance policy that's out there has an exclusion for pandemic so what we have to do now is we watch as the airlines on an almost daily basis start changing their refund policies from Detroit from trickled into Leicester cone into slightly less draconian and finally after much public outcry and I'll be leading that charge so it's actually fair and beneficial to you I like the way that sounds Peter Peter Greenberg always has the answers when it comes to travel and all things about it thank you Peter Hey John three to six you can hear him here on

UK to start preparing for killer coronavirus as deadly disease spreads to US
"In the past few hours the UK government's passed declare to the corona virus our to break a serious and imminent mint threats to public health. It's comes as the number of reported deaths in China stand set more than nine hundred. Let's get the latest on this with Chris Smith who is consultant altuve virologist at Cambridge University. Welcome to the broker. Chris Oh first of all. What does this announcement by the UK? Government mean in practice. Well this this is more kind of a policy situation. It's telling everybody we are preparing. We're putting into certain set of arrangements so that everything thing is prepared. Should the worst happen. The plan in place is not saying wow. The risk is suddenly changed dramatically. The risk is always been there with doing more testing etc.. We'll find out more later this week. I suspect us to really what the background level of this is circulating the country. This is more kind of the government saying that we've got various positions in place whereas policies in place now so if anything does happen we're prepared for it. Why is it gives us announcement now than what kind of considerations have taken place before that? Well things have moved on a little bit haven't they. We've seen very large numbers of cases now declared in China. There's something forty thousand. People have been confirmed as having having this agent. We've got something like four hundred thousand people being watched contact traced by the Chinese authorities. And we're beginning to see pickup beyond the the shores of China last week for instance we had one individual who caught the infection in Singapore. They'd never been anywhere near China showing the infection isn't just outside China. It's actually outside China and is spreading outside China so that was a step change. We've also seen not not one not two but now we're up to eight cases of people from the UK who have been infected with this beyond the shores of the UK at this stage but again reaffirming the fact that did he spreading. And it's quite transmissible so I think this is now a showing that there is a ramp up in in risk and so people are saying we need to be prepared for it now. How much can you tell us about different plans? The UK government's may have in case. The situation gets worse worse over here. Well Caen explain what we're doing in terms of the monitoring and diagnostic side because I'm involved in and from that perspective across this week the information I've seen suggests that we should be slowly phasing in testing local abort tree level now. What that means is that instead of samples arriving At a hospital say and being transmitted down to London where a centralized testing facility can look for this agent. The fortress in networks across the country will have their own. I'm tests so that. They can very quickly process samples from patients without the need to transmit them with a big delay down to London. Get tested set in the back so that is going to help to streamline nine not just monitoring which is going to be important but also getting a good measure on how many people might have this also getting an understanding of how we we can better control and coordinate efforts locally because the sooner we can give results to people with the sooner we can reassure them but be we know what to do with them because if a person needs to be isolated they can be isolated. A person doesn't spend ages in isolation using facilities or wasting their time waiting for a result. We keep the country moving so I think getting the testing is going to be the the first priority. And that's coming this week. We hope the total number of deaths in China has now reached nine hundred and eight and that is more during the SARS epidemic in two thousand to two thousand and three. How would you describe the situation? We're seeing now. What is the situation with the corona virus worldwide? Wii at the moment well the the fine grain data we have is coming from China because obviously there ahead of the curve in terms of hitting their first other countries including this one where tendons be reactive to where people have come from when they have symptoms so case definition here in the at the moment is question. One have symptoms. We'll have you been in contact with someone who has question to have you been in or were they in one of nine risk areas and those areas where they know the diseases circulating collecting at the moment so there may well be Z.. Circulating here on the streets of Britain and we wouldn't know at the moment because we're not going finding random people and testing them because we haven't had the testing Pakistan that would demolish our system. That's why but the point is that the chances are as we begin to look more. We're GONNA find more so more countries with more testing and Awada case definition is probably GONNA show an escalation now. The big question is always still lag. Phase as in China took a wall to give up its numbers before before they started to grow the way that they have recently is the rest of the world in that position did China export enough cases of this to other countries before we knew about it that there is already seething around the world and I suspect that probably was of cases of this. So it's going to slowly grow in smolder and then the numbers will start to climb. We don't know what the Matthias kind of I think what the next week or so is going to show us as we begin to look more but do we know how efficient the sometimes trucco Nian prevention measure have been so far. Well Yeah you're right to call it your Conan. I mean look what China's doing they've got people confined to their homes There were situations where people Philippine told you not allowed out. One designated family member is allowed to go shopping every couple of days. No one else can leave. No one can go to work and the repercussions of this is going to be quite considerable. Obviously the social ones. There's people who might be vulnerable. Who's caring for them? If you if you coke it out the house. There's going to be the psychological things you're going to get you know we're talking about people on boats stuck on in six thousand people stuck on a boat with that doesn't redefine cabin fever or what does and then you got the situation where We we don't know how this is going to spread yet so at the moment is it's really uncertain and so- China have resorted these really quite severe measures and the spraying the streets with no call it at all. But some kind of disinfectant with drones and with other sort of cannons to try and cleanse the areas and reduce the race and it has brought numbers down a bit in China but other countries couldn't possibly do China all doing and China is still just a still not not controlling this. They've still got two and a half thousand cases a day that that dog nosing with it so I think it's early days to say exactly. How far is GONNA go moment? Chris Smith from Cambridge University. Thank

Hunting conan got really into it. 'cause the fun thing too is once he was on board board. He was like no. We're gonna get and his fingers were freezing because he kept posting them in the i._c._u. Keep retrieving the signs yeah. He's as maniacal as anyone anyone in terms of just when he likes an idea and there are all these obstacles in the way he will work harder than anyone to get. He'll find a way ah yeah now if he doesn't like the idea but he was also it just became a mission and you know objectively objectively. You could go like one hundred yards from there watching you go. Oh my god. That's a abode of it's a ship of fools within that this has to be done when we also knew that we had to back up one last time to retrieve the sign says if we left oy hamady prop on an ice floe americans seeking god and we brought it home we haven't that's addressed as well on the show so and we literally just made it back and got home.

One of them had to be pulled away to do the right because after after we tape every night the editors actually 'cause we we go long especially the half hour show we often shoot an extra ten or fifteen minutes and then the producer or if it's comedy that needs to be have fixes. They're all in the editors for an hour an hour and a half to get the show ready down to time and then send it out for that night's broadcast exactly so that's happening concurrent to us trying to put this show together right for thursday's viewing it was yeah it was great but we did it and what worries me is that now they know that we can do that really don't the normal.

"conan" Discussed on Inside Conan: An Important Hollywood Podcast
"In the interview is to folding chairs right at the edge of breath drop-off ryan and it went on forever and it was cold. Conan doesn't wasn't wearing a jack so he he kind of endured an iceland greenlandic interview right and then when then something happened after that that in a way who's who's kind of a little result of the preparation we did we wrote <hes> a greeting for conan to say in <hes> three in greenlandic when we landed and we had the cue cards and the greenlandic language the words are so long vowel heavy. They're funny. They're just funny to see. Apparently greenlandic has the longest word in any language yeah. It's like multiple lines long forward yeah yeah no language language is just crazy and we ended up not doing shooting the greeting and we're like we'll. Let's grab the green in town because it's because the idea was you hear conan doing this greeting and butchering the language and then i think jesse was your idea at one point he would cut to the cue card and that would really get got a big laugh. When you see the words he's trying to actually read so then after that long interviews they asked him to do the weather or i think we'd pitched again. We pitched him doing the weather and they're like we will sure yeah so it was going to be him with the with the other weather person and she'd go and then he'd go and we you were kind of approaching it and it was getting a little like linear thinking of things to improvise and write code and then i forget who i think conan conan was just like let's let me do it. Try to do it in their language and then we're like yes we'll do the reverse shot basically jesse's idea but even funnier prompter and then it was moving it was moving and he's trying to keep up and end up being one of the funniest things on the shop yes yeah but that's an example of an really aired in greenland. Yes it did that. That's going to shoot someone with an idea and he ended up repurposing purposing it those cards home yeah. They seem pretty. I ah i mean they seemed willing to air whenever we gave them they were. They're hungry for contests the greenland. I love their showroom cracking up.
