"Journalists, we've got a great panel for you kicking things off of my dear friend Jason heiner. Now editor in chief of ZD net, I guess we first met when you were at the tech republic, right? That's right, yes. Way back in the good old days and then way back through several acquisitions. You never really left the company. It's true, right? Not since 2001. Not since 2001. I've been here tech republic and then tech Republicans eating it and then seen it. And then back to zenith. But all the same, basically parent company. And my start date is still the same. 21 years. That's kind of mind-blowing, Jason. That's awesome. For sure. I thought it would last a year at best. So it's all a bonus. Well, I don't know what you mean when I started podcasting. I thought, well, there's no future in this, but I'll play with it. I've been doing it quite as long as you have, but almost 18 years, 18 years now. Also, let's say hello to a good friend, a new friend. He's been on several times now, Nicholas de Leon from consumer union, consumer reports. He's a senior electronics reporter over there. Hey, Nick. Hello, Leo. How are you? Great to see you. Yeah, I love having you on. You were kind of a late discovery. I think it's been a couple of years now, but it was so great when I found you. And so glad I basically cold calling to you. As I've explained in the past, I've been a fan of you for a long, long time. And I call emailed you to say, hey, I'm a big fan of your work. Keep it up. So that was basically it. So glad you did. Yeah, thank you. Also another longtime friend, now at protocol, it's of course Owen Thomas. He's senior editor over there. It's not the protocol. Protocol. It's just protocol, right? This protocol is protocol. Protocol. It's how things are done. Yeah. He's got a great big P on his polo shirt stands for protocol. Great to see you. Okay, show of hands, how many of you are going to watch house of dragons tonight? The new Game of Thrones. New York Times actually had an article saying, let's not. Yeah. So two out of three are not. That's very interesting. Oh, and you will be watching this. In fact, it's like a special date. It's the prequel to the Game of Thrones saga. It does not come from George R. R. Martin's pen, which is why they could do it because they've used up all his ink. And then some but did he ever finish the book? No. Nope. Nope. And working on it. Yeah. He and Patrick rothfuss have become kind of the duke nukem forever of fantasy fiction, right? Promised, but never delivered. But that's okay. In fact, George R. R. Martin probably for political reasons said this is the prequel that should have always existed. I'm a 100% behind the house of dragons. But number of people pointed out, this is kind of a battle between old Hollywood and new media because in two weeks, Lord of the Rings debuts on Amazon Prime. So you have Warner Brothers, a hundred year old motion picture company. I don't know if this really counts as Warner Brothers. It's been acquired. It's been sold. It's been bought. But it's now part of Warner discovery and all of that. So this old line media company create and Game of Thrones spent a lot of money. Amazon spent even more money for the streaming rights to The Lord of the Rings series and then created their own. Is it a prequel or a sequel? I think it's a prequel to The Lord of the Rings. It's a prequel because I think The Lord of the Rings proper, the trilogy, and the hobbit. This rights, they're gone. Remain with Warner. Yeah. Oh, isn't that funny? Warner has him. Oh, that's hysterical. So both interesting. Yeah. So it's such a morass. We're watching The Sandman right now on Netflix. So DC Comics property. And it's such a patchwork of rights and rights and intellectual property. To consumer, I don't think it makes any sense. It doesn't give you any signposts to it. Where you're going to find the stories you like. It said that Amazon spent a quarter of a $1 billion getting the rights alone for The Lord of the Rings prequel, and committed to 5 seasons. But they haven't even debuted 5 seasons worth at least a $1 billion, which would make it at least at the time. Most expensive TV series ever. I imagine, though, that warners is spending a lot on House of the dragon. The prequel, I'm just looking to see if I can find a number. I don't know if how many seasons they've committed to, though, that's interesting. And remember, it's not going to have the showrunners from Game of Thrones, David benioff and Dan Weiss. After the last season, maybe people are going to be glad. It's a very interesting battle. And The New York Times today says don't watch either one of them. I think it's link bait. To be honest. Did I write that? Man, is that how you feel? Are you going to admit to that? I could not. I'm sure they'll be fine, but I could not be less interested in a media thing than the dragon show. Or I feel like Lord of the Rings, I feel a, the books are still awesome. Be the movies, to me, came out basically yesterday. I don't understand the point of this new reboot or the show or whatever. I don't know, I don't get it. I'm more of a video game guy anyway, so I really shouldn't even be talking, but yeah, I personally am not super interested in either property, actually. It's kind of life or death. I think at this point for HBO HBO has been going through a lot of troubles of late. Streaming viewing is flat, they just canceled, I think, 38 shows to save money from they just kicked them off HBO, including a lot of originals. I think there's a bit of a struggle going on these days. And I wonder, because Amazon and Apple have a big advantage, we've talked about this before. Their business does not rely on the success of a

"Happens. I said, well, no, I don't think that's how it happened. Okay, but they're similarities, but yeah, but they're still asleep right now. She's wearing a little she has a little her dad found out. He was 20% Irish with 23andMe. Okay. Yeah, I found out what I found out last year when you were in Ireland before I went to Ireland. So the show finding your roots on PBS, I will be in an upcoming their editing my episode right now. Fantastic. They spent last year. They spent ten months working on my genealogy and uncovered something, a secret that everyone went to the grave with. I got it. You're from a family of browns fans. No? That would be tough. You just broke into a sweat right there. Yeah. That would be terrible. Joe, I hate to break it to you. We found out. Your great, great, great grandfather. Diehard browns fans was Paul Brown. Otto Graham, yes. Okay, sorry. So yeah, and we uncovered the secret. So in an upcoming episode of finding your roots, you'll find out. Fantastic. Where that came from and how and which side of my family. What else you got going on? You always got about 15% going on. Well, there's the upcoming metal lords from DB Weiss we call them Dan and my Dungeons and Dragons come on. But he wrote this amazing movie for Netflix called metal lords, which is about a group of kids not often represented who are in a death metal band trying to win the battle of the bands at their high school. And it's this heartwarming, like really fun, great, young high school kid movie about kind of the tropes and archetypes you don't often get in those types of movies. Super fun, great music, Tom Morello. There's all the music. There's some great, great cameos from huge rockstars in it. And the kids are so good. You will fall in love with these kids. So that's coming out soon. And Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead anime series will come out and then I've got a couple other things that I'm actually writing right now. Okay. That hopefully I'll be able to announce soon because they're kind of like, they're like dream projects of mine that I've been working on for a year that I haven't been able to talk. As you know, we're always here for you. Whenever you think coming up and just for anybody out there in our peacock or SiriusXM or terrestrial radio audience, we're used to hearing it, but yes, Joe Manganiello is in a Dungeons and Dragons group. And one of the members is one of the creators of the Game of Thrones television theory series. DB Weiss Dan Weiss, right? And Dave Benny off played. He's in it too? Yeah, so actually the people who brought Game of Thrones to life on HBO are Dungeons and Dragons members. Well, they grew up playing it. I mean, which makes sense. Which is what the show became. And yeah, so they play characters and my show every week or the adventure. They don't have to, they don't have to write, they just have to show up and they get to play their characters, which is really fun. Right. Which is like with the 25 sided die and stuff like that. It gave 5 too many sides. And does your wife still refer to you guys as the nerds? Does she refer to you guys as the nerds still? I prefer intellectual. Does bubbles make it into the Dungeons and Dragons room? Bubbles sits on my lap while I run the games and just takes a nap. She just goes to the grandmaster. Is that what it is? Dungeon master. Doctor master. I'm about making fun of you. You seem like I'm making fun of you. I'm not doing it. I mean, there's a little bit you were close enough to 20. I think you knew it was a 20 sided, which you went 25 to try to hide your tracks. If I only had my cloak of invisibility on right now. There it is. Okay, there we go. Skin the game. Just get in the game. I know. But I get destroyed in two seconds. Like I'd be dead, I'd be dead before I hit the floor. Walk you through it. And you could make the greatest character ever, rich. Like what? Whatever you want to do. What do you think? You cast spells? Do you fight? Do you do with a little bit of both? I really thought of it. That's good. I'm a spellcaster. That's a good. I do that every day. That's a good one. Yeah. The rich eyes that show audiences spellbound every day. Throw flames. Yeah, fireballs. Yeah. Yeah. Lightning bolts fireballs. Why wouldn't anybody create the most powerful character of all time? Because you start off as like a little tadpole and then you have to grow. That takes time. You have to grow. But that's the fun of it. You're on an ongoing series. You're in Game of Thrones. You succumb to our Game of Thrones parties every week. This is your chance to be on the show, who do you want to be the mountain you want to be Jon Snow, who you want to be. What are the Daenerys? Whatever you want. And drinking and watching TV. If George Martin came to play, would you would you come up with? Oh, I talk jets with him. He's a talk jets with him. They were supposed to COVID hit. So we had to stop playing live because COVID hit. There's a zoo in George was going to come over. Yeah, then we started doing it by Zoom. Yeah. So you roll the die on Zoom and is there just like so there's a program where I put up the map in each character can only see what you can see. So if you have like night vision, I program how far you can see if you have a torch and you can see how far you can only see what you can see. So sometimes people in the zoom are like, oh no, and you're like, because you can't see it. What happened? What happened? Get up here, you know, and then you have to get in a fight. Okay. So I have the map up here and then we have zoom over there so we can ask each other. Ballpark it for me. What's my time commitment if I start this process? Ballpark. What is it? Well, I mean, this is like hey man, you know, what's my time commitment? If you were like, hey, I want to, I want a deadlift 600.

"Four. Our guest this week is the co-creator co writer of all six episodes of netflix comedy. The chair amanda peet is best known for her onscreen roles in such tv series as togetherness brock meyer studio sixty on the sunset strip. As well as jack and jill the share marks her debut as a writer and showrunner and series counts her husband. David benny off and his fellow. Game of thrones collaborator. Dan weiss among its exact producers. Thanks for joining us. Amanda thanks for having me so let's start at the beginning. How did the chair come together. I was working on this idea. I wanted to write something for debut. Pause 'cause. I loved working with him so much and thought he was so brilliant and transparent. And so was i was Messing around because idea of a widower whom daughter goes to college and then he starts dating his boss and He likes the pages i gave him. But it wasn't really a story. And then i started thinking about. What if he you know was a bit of a loose cannon and i started thinking about an english department and what if he tends grasp. This woman who was his newly appointed supervisor had to kind of Respond to this transgression as his boss. i was really into the idea of doing a romantic comedy. How long had you been working on on. What became the chair. You know. I remember a few years ago that you were working with. Benny often weiss on scripted series for hbo before their deal expired there but to my knowledge nothing ever became of that there was was that where the the chair started. Obviously you got you. And you and jay did togetherness for for hbo. I was not working on anything. With and david i worked on saying with david like hand years ago but No i don't know maybe it's been about. It's been over two years. Probably since i sat with jay and a coffee shop and eagle rock and gave him this fifty pages of a non story. So i'm very curious about about your your your careers fascinating. Look obviously big fans of yours both of us are are die. Hard brock meyer fans. I can speak for myself here. I absolutely loved togetherness and it was heartbroken when that show move forward but at what point in your career did did writing and creating a scripted series. Become a priority for you. But i think unless you're on the very top echelon of actresses who are you know approaching fifty. You're you're not necessarily getting a whole lot of interesting writing. And i had dabbled in college and and then i think marrying david you know helped me realize that i really did enjoy writing and that It was a way to sort of take the control back because after you're just constantly waiting for the phone tearing it's sort of like having a terrible boyfriend or girlfriend and so obviously writing is something you can do on your own and i really liked that freedom and i liked the idea that i could work and create. Where when. I wasn't hired by somebody when you've been when you've been doing that when you've been conceiving of projects. How often have you been. Conceiving of them in terms of this is a role. I would like to play. This is something for me as an actor versus this is for me as a writer and producer but not to act in. It always starts out as something. I wanna act in. It always starts out as like a woman in her forties funded But i swear to. God i'm not lying. It's just not inspiring. When i think of myself and it's deeply inspiring when i think about somebody else you know like sarah parker or stan. Oh I just can't get it up for myself. I did read that. You wrote the series with santo in mind so obviously at point when you moved on from seeing yourself into seeing sandra in that. Why was she the one that you wanted for this. And how did you ultimately cast her. Considering she's constantly receiving offers just inundated from everything. I hear you know. I saw her in this play called. Stop kiss at the public with jessica hacked and like nineteen ninety eight at. It was one of those searing performances and i always thought she was incredibly funny and also really. I hope this sounds okay. But like really send shaw and a really good person to you. Know to put into Have a romance. Which is part of why i think killing works so beautifully. 'cause she has such kind of She so She's still alive and sexual and has such logging and i don't think i'll actresses do or actors and i really wanted that. I wanted this to be the sounds so badly. But i wanted to do like a middle aged love store. You mentioned on deadly boring so okay so you have the idea then the you you want this sensual as you say actress to to be in the party you want to build around her. How did you broach the part tour. And then what were the conversations around the fact that you know as as leslie said she gets lots of opera. She does have another ongoing series. She's working on et cetera. I grew up with a A lot of friends grew up in bicultural households. And i think she responded to the idea that That we were gonna make that part of the story and that she was going to be a a single ball at that. There was gonna be a transracial adoption. I think both of us are really interested in foreground. Dang and alternative family. And i think he thinks you responded to.

"But i wanted to ask you if you knew and i'm asking this for selfish reasons How how prevalent is this issue. Among young girls is it. The same is widespread among boys and girls. Does it typically just effect boys. I'm i've always assumed it was mostly a male situation. But i'm sure i'm naive about what. What do you think. I of course have young girls. Some thinking of i mean there's different Opinions not about whether it's an issue. It is an issue. I mean it's a female issue now as much as a male issue but a female issue far more than it should be and that is not just teenage girls. It's also young women. It's also married women and by the way the book is called Trading boldly through pornographic world. By dan weiss and he. He addresses this as well. But i've heard different takes on what's behind. That and i think there's a little bit of a problem when you just kind of chalk up You know this is what boys do. This is what girls do. As if there's not you know at least some sort of variation there but but increasingly i tell you what one thought leader who had spent a lotta time studying. This has said he said you know Teenage boys go to pornography to get what they want. Teenage girls go to pornography to learn how they're supposed to behave and that's a brutal poodle way of saying it but i think there is at least some level of truth. It's revealed when you go to kind of the hookup culture and and what's call the economics of sex something that mark talked about. There's video that the austin institute has put out kind of walking through this this way of looking at the sexual marketplace so to speak. And it's a kind of a crass way to say but looking at what drives the market forces in the sexual dynamics between men and women in the modern culture Where it's not protected within the context of marriage suddenly and the punch line is marked puts..
