More specifically sir strumming is canned fermented herring that in and of itself doesn't sound that bad. There are many fermented foods that we eat and we have no problem with them. Yogurt sauerkraut and kimchi are all fermented foods. And no-one freaks out at the idea of eating them from inflation is an ancient form of food preparation by the breakdown. Food via microorganisms like bacteria and yeast all well and good cover. There's another process of breakdown of food via micro organisms in that is called rotting serse roaming toes the line between fermentation and rotting the history of sir strumming goes back to at least the sixteenth century when we can find the first written mention of the food however the food might be very well older than that as from. It is a pretty old process. The legend of sir strumming holds that it was accidentally created by fishermen who didn't have enough salt to preserve their catch. They use less salt than normal and sold their fish to some locals and finland salt is used to inhibit microbial growth and to stop the fish from rotting. When the fishermen returned they thought the locals would be mad at them for selling them fish. That rotted instead. They love the product and wanted more of it. The fishermen tried the fish themselves and thus stroming was born today sir. Strumming is prepared. In purchasing a can while in the can the fermentation process continues fermentation results in the release of gases which means at the can will often be bulging due to high pressure inside the can the fermentation of the fish in the can result in the single most unique quality of sir strumming the smell in two thousand and two japanese study found it to be the worst smelling food in the world. The smell is so bad that it has become legendary. it's been described as rotten eggs. A dead body a dirty diaper and raw sewage but the truth is there are so few things you can really compare it to because nothing else smells quite so bad. The smell is what's made the product famous. And if it weren't for the smell it would be about as controversial as pickled herring children in sweden have been known to open a can of sir stroming school so they could get out of class. Airlines will not allow people to carry sir strumming on flights because of the high pressure in the can in the low pressure in the cabin the higher pressure differential can result in some cans rupturing spewing the smelly liquid onto the plane and.

Germany evicted attendant because they spilled a can of sir strumming in the building stairwell german laws. Make it very hard to evict people.

If you search for sir strumming online you'll find dozens and dozens of reaction videos of people opening up the cans and trying to eat the contents. The videos mainly consists of gigging wrenching and sometimes vomiting the problem. According to the sir strumming experts is that they're eating at wrong for starters. You never want to open a canister stroming indoors for reasons which i think of established by now. Ideally you want to open the can when submerged in water that will prevent the liquid inside from spraying all over the place when it's opened alternatively you could open it while it's enclosed in a plastic bag once the liquid has been drain. You don't eat it straight from the can the herring which is put in the can. Hasn't been gutted or deboned. You need to do that. I then the traditional way of meaning it is with a swedish flat bread called tune broad along with potatoes onions and sour cream. It's usually eaten as sort of small sandwich. I've actually had the experience of trying some sir strumming and it really doesn't taste as bad as it smells ranted given that it's the worst smelling food in the world. That's a pretty low bar but it isn't bad so long as it prepared properly if you really want the full sir strumming experience. I'd have to suggest you visit the island of von in sweden's high coast. It is a center of herring fishing and it's considered. The mecca for strumming. August is considered the best season enforcers strumming. Because it's in the middle of the summer. It's also one of the best times to visit ov- on regardless the main day for eating it is the third thursday of august also known as sir strumming day.

Imminent chino and her followers fled to a mountainside road where their convoy stopped after several days of snarling. Traffic and headaches for locals police arrived and barricaded the group to monitor them on the day of their apocalypse. And hopefully past the authorities planned to keep chino and her followers under watch until the press and other gawkers moved on but as may fifteenth quickly approached. Everyone was on high alert. A minor earthquake struck. Tokyo potentially foreshadowing chino's cataclysm chino's followers readied their minds and bodies for a swift death. And then the morning of may fifteenth arrived. The group eagerly awoke to see if they could spot the mysterious tenth planet bureau in the sky but they were only met with some warm spring rain showers. They held their breath for the rest of the day waiting for monstrous earthquakes. But those never came and when the sky cleared up new bureau wasn't anywhere to be seen. There were no reports of disasters anywhere on earth. The world capped spinning pana wave. The science wing of chino's group immediately went into damage control mode. They announced that. Chino delayed the doomsday. For one week. Chino said the fearsome date was now may twenty second one panel wave follower rationalized.

You'd think it might be challenging for her devotees to continue putting their faith in her but continuing to hold beliefs after a failed. Prediction is actually quite common. According to psychiatrist. Neil liser if a cult member had strong beliefs and sacrificed a lot continuing to believe might be less painful than discarding everything. They've stood for. He wrote the occurrence of a prophetic disprove. Rationalization must follow in order to assuage anxiety created by this this confirmation wiser even specifically wrote the this rationalization may take the form of an admission of the miscalculation of the predicted date. He said for truly committed believers prophecies cannot and do not fail even though pana wave postponed the end of the world by a week the authorities continued to keep a close watch on them. The public still had no assurance that the group wouldn't turn out to be dangerous in the vein of a previous called called omission.

Next tensions were high at the encampment as cult members who just been granted. Another of life continued with their daily tasks. The police and press marveled as chino's flock bother to do laundry and dane duties as the apocalypse approached. But they watched closely to see if there are any signs of a sinister plan. Most of the other bystanders were there for entertainment but some wondered what if chino was right. The old reclusive woman seemed so sure and her conviction spoke volumes the days slowly past and then may twenty second finally arrived but just as before nothing extraordinary happened. Chino's followers were disappointed but most never lost faith in their leader. The authorities hung around for a few more days but when they realized the group wasn't dangerous they lost interest and broke down their barricade.

I saw the images being broadcast around the world. And it breaks my heart. 25 grand Children. Many of them were watching TV. Thinking about this building, whether there Grandpa was okay.

And be with people of integrity as we do here today. Now we gather Due to a selfish man's injured pride. The outrage of supporters who he had deliberately misinform for the past two months and stirred to action this very morning. What happened here today was an insurrection. Incited by the president of the United States. Those who choose to continue to support is a dangerous gambit by objecting to the results of a legitimate democratic election. Will forever be seen. As being complicity. In an unprecedented attack against our democracy. Fairly or not. They'll be remembered for their role in the shameful episode in American history. That will be their legacy. I salute Senator Langford. Leffler and Brawn and Danes that I'm sure others who in the light of today's outrage Have withdrawn their objection.

The truth is that President elect Biden won the election President Trump Lost. I've had that experience myself. It's no fun. Scores the courts, the president's own attorney, general, state election officials, both Republican and Democrat, have reached that unequivocal decision. And in light of today, sad circumstances I asked my colleague do we wear on political fortunes more heavily than we weigh the strength of our republic, the strength of our democracy and the cause of freedom. What's the weight of personal acclaim? Compared to the weight of conscience. Leader. McConnell said that the vote today is the most important in his 36 years of public service. Think of that. Authorizing two wars vote again to impeachments. He said that not because the vote reveals something about the election. It's because this boat reveals something about us. Urged by college to move forward with completing the electoral count to refrain from further objections, and he unanimously affirmed the legitimacy of the presidential election. Thank you, Mr President.

It's coronavirus do-over time. What would we do differently?
"I'm health reported teigen tyler an opposition and journalists alter norman swan wednesday the ninth of december. And it's episode. Two hundred of the corona cast so when we hit the one hundredth episode. We buy setback and went. Oh my gosh. We never thought we'd get to one hundred two hundred. I know it was like two hundred years two hundred days. Well it feels like a silent day to answer these questions from dane. Who says what do you think is the most important thing we've learned about. Nineteen in the last year and if we had a time over again what would we do differently. Well let's do something different. You answer that first to you. Know what i think. At an individual level we would have been more mentally prepared for the challenges of these. See the personal challenges of these see but from an infection control perspective especially in australia Harto corinthian outbreaks notwithstanding. I really do think that we have done an incredible job of keeping levels of the virus incredibly low in australia when we say overseas. What could have been here in australia if we hadn't taken that really hard stance from the beginning. So here's what. I think we would do differently. So the first thing. I'll start is internationally and this is a wishlist. I wish that we had had a more cooperative world when the virus hit if we'd had a more cooperative world you know. This is just wishful thinking but we had a habit of world without authoritarian fragile leaders in china russia and the united states. This would be a very different pandemic. in fact it may never even escape from china because they would have dealt with it transparently and they would have controlled it than they would have told people about it and they're told people about it in december. They're abroad in international help into wuhan market and checked where come from and the world would have pulled together on china's behalf and helped china out but we came into an environment where nations were operating by themselves and it was every state for themselves. And that's the sex. The ground for the pandemic so do differently do international relations differently. The biology of a pandemic organism is almost the least important part of that organism of the pandemic loss of different organisms can cause pandemics. It's human behavior that causes the pandemic so the way we live the way we act. Politics works so international travel works. That's what creates a pandemic what we would do. Differently is have a world that's more pandemic aware and aware of their behavior and aware of the broader implications beyond beyond the personal. That's what i would do differently than international level. The wild thing about that is that if we had done that we never would have nine. What scale of crisis. We would have averted but we do know that. This isn't going to be the last pandemic pathogen that if we ever encounter and saw are we need to take these lessons going forward so that the next pandemic is a fisa like this one should main. I'm a comeback to something. We said on corona cast probably in march march april the of the beginning when prevention works. Nothing happens and so the most important thing we've learned we should have learnt is or if you went back in time is that the general community knows that when you actually have prevention working nothing happens. So that's a lesson for everything and we're facing catastrophe with climate change but it's a slow moving catastrophe and if we actually act on climate change not very much will happen and that's what you actually want to happen. So people talk about all paul early in the seventy s sixty s and seventy s doomsayers population and. so on. The are all wrong because nothing happened. Nothing happened because people did some stuff about that sort of thing and of course nothing happened. So what we learn from this is successful. Prevention is dull and boring because nothing happens. There's no drama.

It's interesting when you speak to Danish designers, they really have always had this mentality of your buildings coming to last many lifetimes or at least one lifetime. Anyway you building something in the best possible way it's not about a particular being really fancy it needs to be functional but for some reason, I, guess the purity of creating. Something that is so functional. The product ends up being beautiful. So where does that spirit from? Do you think in Denmark? It's kind of boost sort of functionalism and also the aesthetics I think the simplicity and is a cool aesthetic in Denmark, and of course, it's kind of goes a long way back and not the craftmanship that something has to be really well built and. appreciated.

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

"Such as have you ever conspired with foreign intelligence officer or service. So what does that mean are accusing me of? Something could mean a lot of things giving sources and methods working for the enemy. You told me Claire Danes. Welcome to fresh air. Thank you so much. So homeland has often been really timely. And in this season the new president is trying through Saul. Berenson the new national security adviser who had been your boss at the CIA. He's trying to negotiate peace with the Taliban and right now the administration is trying to negotiate peace with the Taliban of the events in homeland that have been echoed in real life. What's the one that really kind of tick you up short the most and I'm talking about something that happened in homeland before it happened in real right well I mean seasons back suddenly became clear that Russia was a fairly nefarious presence right? We didn't I wasn't aware of that. When we began the season. I mean originally. We were telling a story that spoke directly to the aftermath of nine eleven we were focusing on terrorism as we knew it ten years ago and so much has transpired since then right and yeah suddenly trump was elected and then the whole idea of the CIA was in like serious question in a way that we couldn't have anticipated. I don't think but We are pretty assiduous and getting as close a reading of of what's happening in the current political climate as possible every year before the writers start designing the season. We spent a week in. Dc talking to People in the clandestine services and Journalists and political insiders. And you know we kinda take a deep dive into. What's churning and what's going to be especially relevant in a year's time when the show is gonNA air but even so there's always some kind of inexplicable force at play that create some mirroring That there's no way we could have even anticipated at the end of the previous season's season seven when you were imprisoned by the Russians. They withheld your medications for bipolar disorder. And so when you're released your full psychosis and your eyes are just wild and unfocused and they're not registering what you see you see Saul Berenson. You know who you're very close to. He had been your boss at the CIA. He's played by Mandy Patinkin and it looks like you're running towards him because he's there to receive you but actually you run right past him because nothing is registering on. You're just in a state of wild fear. what impact have anew mentally to inhabit someone with a mental health disorder. Who is forced off of her meds? Well it felt like a privilege. Honestly I mean that's one of the reasons why I love doing what we do as actors is that we get to go to the outer reaches of our imagination and empathize with people who might seem very remote or other or inaccessible. And suddenly you get to feel not only intimate with them but sort of merged with them. You've got to embody them and it's really fascinating. You know to attempt to look at the world through such different Lens so yeah and I actually you know what honestly it's so interesting just talking to you now imagining a my body's starting to change like my heart rate is starting to quicken and I feel a little bit more. Adrenaline is and it's so interesting. It's like you have a contact high. Ju just through your imagination even just recalling it now. It's starting to happen to my system in voluntarily and I don't quite understand how that works but it does feel like your voice changed as you were saying. Yeah true what else. What else? It's really my heart. My heart started like really racing And the sound guys on the show would pick it up through the mic of your heartbeat. Yeah Yeah you have a mike on your chest by your heart But you know it's just so wild this acting thing. I don't yeah still kind of the mystery. So John Laura in the New Yorker wrote agreed profile of a while ago and and he wrote that there were a couple of times in your childhood that you described as dalliances with madness where you had terrifying visions of ghosts and gargoyles emerging from the shower head and from shapes in the woodwork. And that brought you to a psychiatrist. Do you have an understanding of what happened? I don't really I mean I think I probably had a very active imagination. And was learning how to wrangle it to differentiate the real from the unreal and that takes discipline and I think I was still just developing it. I also think maybe there was kind of burgeoning. Ocd because a lot of that. A lot of the behavior was ritualistic. And these creatures that I saw in quotes would talk to me and tell me to do things like You know I remember one time I was supposed to hold a contorted position for twenty minutes or something but I think there were some overlaps there and it didn't take long to undo it as soon as I found myself in a therapist office at six I was like oh I think I have a problem and as soon as I became conscious of it. Almost immediately started to dissipate. So when you're young and you had those visions those images in your head Were you afraid to go to sleep? Afraid of what what was terrified terrified of the dark which lasted for a long time like even in college. I Remember if I had to pee in the night you my dorm I would call my boyfriend and wake him up so he could escort me to the bathroom. I mean how ridiculous I have to say at forty I have. I've matured past that but No there are vestiges of that. You know yeah lasted for quite a while. You seem to know that you wanted to be an actor when you're really young Really young it was so weird. I was so clear about it and I can't tell you why I mean. I grew up in a very creative environment. My parents were had been visual artists and lift downtown New York and the eighties. You know So that may have had something to do with it. Nobody in my immediate circle were performing artists When I was five I saw Madonna bopping around on television. And I just had this epiphany that that was a choice that that could be like your vocation and I just thought well yes. I'd literally started jumping up and down on the bed because I was so excited by the idea And then a little. While later I realized that acting specifically was a strain of the performing arts. That was the one that I was most Most interested in but somebody told me on the nine that most actors don't make much money which I found concerning so I ended. My plan is going to be a therapist and do acting workshops on the side and that was my plan for a good year and and And I don't know how seriously my parents took me. You know but I started taking acting classes and I went to a performing arts junior high school and I met other kids who were doing it professionally and you know and I figured out how to get an agent and so figured out how to get an agent. Not your parents. How did you talking to my friends at school? Who had you know we're doing this for real and my? My Dad had been photographer. So we had a a darkroom and our loft in the woman who was renting it out took my head shots and we sent them. I mean it was very makeshift. I just used whatever resources deeded we had. So how old were you? When you had your first headshots I was twelve. What were they like? We took them on the streets of New York and I kind of have a feeling that we may have taken them on the block that I now live on in the West village because I people take head shots there on that block a lot. I think it's like headshot block Could be making that up. But that's you know. Yeah so you said that. One of the downsides acting when you were young was that you knew actors on the whole weren't GonNa make a lot of money. Do Your parents not have a lot of money? And was that an issue. You grew up with well. They had been artists and then they did take on more. Conventional jobs eventually may be for financial reasons so I may have intuited that a little bit. My Dad became a contractor and my mom ran a toddler. School in loft and again I mean I was living in a world that was populated by artists.

Day was nuts and then with Rohan five years later I was filming in the first and second semester was Cyrus had been the second and third so so then. The challenge was just being exhaust. All the time and nauseous and I kept falling asleep in between takes. But I couldn't tell anybody why and my Dresser who's really lovely woman and she had crocheted bag for me and I fell asleep on this crocheted bag and I. It looked like I had third degree burns and they had to like they. Put an like a hairdryer to it. We had to wait for about twenty minutes. You know before we could film and I just thought. Oh my God do they think I have a substance abuse issue or you know I. I was really paranoid about that but I was just so exhausted and I just wanted to scream. I'm pregnant you know till yeah. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah I was just. I was superstitious about it. Even at that point But it was the kind of confusing. What's the more feminist thing to do to pretend like? I'm pregnant but I could do anything or say like I'm pregnant. And that needs to be respected much more feminine. Say I'M PREGNANT. And that needs to be respected and. I didn't have that in me at that point now. I do now that you're not pregnant. Yeah this was pre me to you know. Oh true right So you've shot the last episode What was it like to come to the end? I still feel like I'm coming to you. Know it's it's been ten years of my life. It's been eight seasons but it's been ten years and it's been formative ten years you know. I started the show as a barely married person. And I'm leaving the show as a mother of two at the last really meaningful scene I had was with. Mandy was of course a very dramatic one and I I definitely fell apart emotionally and I just remember mom getting getting talking about but just remember sort of clinging to him You know it's it's very profound what you share it. The trust that you build over that length of time and we shot the show all over the planet.

She has an equally sharp eye for the absurd. There's a touch of Wes Anderson Arches to her that it the way her camera both flat and mocks the cavernous drawing rooms and sunny meadows of the nineteen th century English village of Highbury.

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

Why but my dad has lost all of these mothers and he's still here know but it doesn't work that way. Exactly you know and I. I'm fortunate that I've kind of gone to a point where I can realize that but no. It was so sad so sad. Did your grandfather leave a note You know he left Like post it notes all over the house labeling objects that he was gonNA give to differently both really sad but you know he was really clear about it and it was the right choice for him so I think it's okay. It has to be okay right. Did he leave things for you? Yeah he left me like an ivory talcum powder container and other things but it was so specific like people are really interesting. Were so interesting so you have two children. And they're they're both pretty young and one of them was born. I think two thousand eighteen and the other earlier in the in the series Was it hard when you were pregnant?

Oh Gosh I mean your first crush your face breaking out That feeling of isolation I still remember there was one line in the pilot or it said I can't bring myself to eat in front of my mother at just means too much to her Which I of course think about all the time now as I tell my kids to eat their spinach But Yeah it was so paralleled and sometimes there would be an episode that. I didn't fully understand because I actually hadn't arrived at that experience myself and then a week later I would you know so. It was really amazing. Dance to in terms of things that you went through that your character went through. I WANNA play a scene from my so called life and you and Jordan Catalano who you had a big crush on in the series had kissed but the rumor was going around in school that you actually had sex which you did not your mother's heard the rumor and decides it's time to have the talk with you about birth control. So here is my guest Claire. Danes and Bess Armstrong as her mother in a scene from my so called life and in the centuries in her bedroom. Listening to the cranberries. And you'll hear that and I should mention. We're also going to hear Claire. Danes doing a voice over in the scene. We need to talk when I was twelve. My mother gave me my sex talk. I'm not sure either of US has fully recovered. Now that you Jordan are Oh my God mom Angela. I can accept that you have a boyfriend. I don't have a boyfriend fine. Akao a male Powell. Whatever word you want to choose the point is I'm your mother and I don't think your mom. Thank you ready but I have to know if this is what's happening because I don't think that that I can keep mom. I begged you to stop I. I need to know that you're using. I mean I remember how this fields I do but it's The Times that we live in long honey. I know you don't WanNa think about these things. I know you think you're invulnerable think that you have some kind of protection if you are going to be. I'm not having sex all right really. I'm not even close to an embarrassing degree. Okay I'm sorry honey I I just I. I want you to be prepared when the time comes. Whenever the time comes it'll never come not with Jordan is that what's bothering no. Nothing's bothering me. Mom You couldn't possibly understand or help so please. I don't mean to hurt your feelings but just please. Let's my guess Claire Danes with Bess Armstrong and has seen from my so called life. Did you have that talk with your mother? I don't remember having that talk but I remember when I got my period and like my mom kind of discovered it 'cause she was doing laundry and and approaching me about that and just feeling like devastated which was funny because I trusted her and we were. It was so relaxed between us. And but there are just some things that feel shameful by definition. Almost you know Which is so sad so sad. But there's there's it's scary stuff right and I don't know but yeah isn't that Oh it's so. It's such a beautifully. Written scene is so recognizable. How how old were you when you got your period I was young. I was eleven and I was I was terrified. And what you we're afraid of were you afraid of maturing or afraid of the yeah like looming womanhood and sex and all of these big ideas that I was. Ill prepared for that. I couldn't get in to kind of make any sense of so. Yeah and I just I've by flinched. Yeah we afraid of your friends. Finding out. I was afraid of all of it. I was just afraid of it. I was afraid of the the change and I had reason to be. Because it's your living in like a Kafka story I know it's just the worst. I I when I was pregnant. I kind of felt that way again. Just that you know You have to cede total control your body just riots and it never consults you about any of these things. So when you were like teenage star Those are the years you're team New Year's or the years when you're trying to figure out who you are who you are separate from who your parents thank you are or who want you to be and at the same time people were probably thinking. Oh she's Angela from my so called life and projecting onto you Claire Danes the personality of your character and Jhelum. So was that is it a difficult time to Become well known for a role when you're trying to figure out who you are. Yeah I think so I mean I just I mean. Adolescence is a difficult time full. Stop in some ways. I think I ran into acting because I was struggling emotionally just with that reality. I really had a hard time in junior high school and was bullied and just hated the social dynamics and I got to reflect on that in such an incredible way with my so called life and then I was kind of buffered from the actual experience of it because I was suddenly in a world full of adults who were much more humane but at the same time I was also not having to develop these social strategies right or techniques or you know my development emotionally stunted and that did catch up with me eventually and that's why that was a major reason why. I.

"My guest is Claire. Danes The star of the Showtime Series Homeland. Which is in its eighth and final season. She plays the CIA officer who's brilliant but sometimes behaves radically because she has bipolar disorder. It's sometimes difficult for her fellow officers to tell if she's on the verge of a breakthrough or if he's being paranoid. During a manic episode Danes was a teenager when she became known for her starring role on the series. My so called life about a girl in highschool dealing with anxiety is about sexuality school and Parents. The show was cancelled in nineteen ninety five after one season but it had a long afterlife. Dance has revealed a remarkable emotional range in the role of Carrie Mathison and homeland and won two emmys and two Golden Globes. The focus of the series was initially on fighting terrorism but more recently homeland dealt with Russian meddling in American politics and a conspiracy within the American government to take down the president. At the end of last season Carey was captured by Russian intelligence. She was imprisoned interrogated and her medication was withheld which left her in a psychotic state when she was released in the first episode of the new season the new president wants to end the war in Afghanistan and carries old boss at the CIA. Who's now the National Security Advisor? Wants to send her there because she has so many contacts in Kabul but some officers in the CIA are worried that she might have been compromised while held by the Russians in this scene. She's being questioned by a CIA officer. You were detained in Russia for two hundred and thirteen days. Yes you were interrogated for the first thirty ish is your tag. A colonel named Sergei Tabakov most of the time. Anyway cheer you. Why did you stop all? This is in the file. It's a big file. Can you tell me why you start interrogating you? Think because my face he was not strategic. No No I. I was in the midst of a florid. Psychosis withheld my medication and took about twenty days for me to devolve into a non very helpful subject. They kept at it for another week or so. I can't give you an exact figure after that. It's all either blank or a series of images that don't much comport with realities. If we're doing this a slow. It may be. We'll take some water. Doug informs me you'd like to be reinstated at the agency. Yes yes I would like that very much a security clearance isn't an option with upwards of one hundred and eighty days accounted for working so hard with Dr Foley and dogs China fill in the gaps. Did they give you the impression that wasn't the case? Did they tell you fail to deception indicated? So you're going to have to bear with me which questions you usually but not always. I'd like to know which questions please quite a few actually such as have you ever conspired with a foreign intelligence officer or service. So what does that mean or accusing me of? Something could mean a lot of things giving up sources and methods working for the enemy. You tell me Claire Danes. Welcome to fresh air. Thank you so much. So homeland has often been really timely. And in this season the new president is trying through Saul. Berenson the new national security adviser who had been your boss at the CIA. He's trying to negotiate peace with the Taliban and right now. The trump administration is trying to negotiate peace with Taliban of the events in homeland that have been echoed in real life. What's the one that really kind of take you up short? The most and I'm I'm talking about something that happened in homeland before it happened in real right well. I mean seasons back. Suddenly it became clear that Russia was a fairly nefarious presence right. I didn't I wasn't aware of that. When we began the season. I mean originally. We were telling a story that spoke directly to the aftermath of nine eleven we were focusing on terrorism as we knew it ten years ago and so much has transpired since then right and yeah suddenly trump was elected you know and then the whole idea of the CIA was in like serious question in a way that we couldn't have anticipated. I don't think but We are pretty assiduous and getting as close a reading of of what's happening in the current political climate as possible every year before the writers start designing the season. We spent a week in D. C. Talking to people in the clandestine services and Journalists and political insiders. And you know we kind of take a deep dive into. What's churning and what's going to be especially relevant in years time when the show is going to air but even so there's always some kind of inexplicable forests at play that create some mirroring That there's no way we could have even anticipated at the end of the previous season's season seven when you're imprisoned by the Russians. They withheld your medications for bipolar disorder. And so when you're released your full psychosis and your eyes are just wild and unfocused and they're not registering what you see you see Saul Berenson. You know who you're very close to. He had been your boss at the CIA is played by Mandy Patinkin and it looks like you're running toward him because he's there to receive you but actually you run right past him because nothing is registering on. You're you're just in a state of wild fear What impact did it have anew mentally to inhabit someone with a mental health disorder? Who is forced off of her meds? Well it felt like a privilege. Honestly I mean that's one of the reasons why I love doing what we do as actors is that we get to go to the outer reaches of our imagination and empathize with people who might seem very remote or other or inaccessible. And suddenly you get to feel not only intimate with them but sort of merged with them. You've got to embody them and it's really fascinating. You know to attempt to look at the world through a different Lens so yeah and I actually you know what honestly it's so interesting just talking to your now imagining it. My Body is starting to change like my heart. Rate is starting to quicken and I feel a little bit more adrenalizing. It's so interesting. It's like you have a contact high j- just through your imagination Even just recalling it now. It's starting to happen to my system in voluntarily and I don't quite understand how that works but it does feel like your voice changed as you were saying it's true what else what else I don't know like it's really my heart. My heart started like really racing And the sound guys on the show would pick it up through the MIC in your heartbeat. Yeah Well Yeah. You have a mike on your chest by your heart But you know it's just so wild this acting thing don't i? Yeah still kind of mystery. So John Laura in the New Yorker Roy degrade profile of you awhile ago and and he wrote that. There were a couple of times in your childhood that you described as dalliances with madness where you had terrifying visions of ghosts and gargoyles emerging from the shower head and from shapes in the woodwork. And that brought you to a psychiatrist. Do you have an understanding of what happened? I don't really. I mean I think I probably had a very active imagination. And was learning how to wrangle it. You know to differentiate the real from the unreal and that takes discipline and I think I was still just developing it. I also think maybe there was kind of burgeoning. Ocd because a lot of that. A lot of the behavior was ritualistic. And Y- these creatures that I saw in quotes would talk to me and tell me to do things like I remember. One time I was supposed to hold a contorted position for twenty minutes or something but I think there were some overlaps there and it didn't take long to undo it as soon as I found myself in a therapist office at six I was like oh I think I have a problem and as soon as I became conscious of it. Almost immediately started to dissipate. So when you were young and you had those visions those images in your head We afraid to go to sleep. Afraid of what would I was terrified. Terrified of the dark which lasted for a long time like even in college. I remember if I appear in the night you know in my dorm I would call my boyfriend and wake him up so he could escort me to the bathroom. Ridiculous at forty I have I've matured past.

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

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

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

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

"David does respond to knowing your soured ill. Boy, thank you all have a good night. All right. How about that time in August? Alex, his Biannic arm. Ooh. I gotta say that was the scariest time in my life. Waking up in a hospital after a horrible car wreck and learning that you have lost a, you know, a limb. The gain some ability, but only define that you've gained by onic arm. And you've been able to like have like a wifi hotspot and stuff from that by on a garden to now. Right. You've like souped it up. I mean, I will. Yeah. When I get it. But that's not going to happen until August August. But in August. Yeah. Have wifi capability on? My arm will be able to podcast and record from my arm. It's gonna be great. I think we have a clip. I think what. Claire Danes brought to the table is something that most actresses have never brought to screen before. Oh, definitely. She's doing. She's doing stuff that. Fucking bio arm. Two. Well. Oh. Okay. All right. I'm gonna reprogram. Reboot. It right. Yeah. Good. Yes. Okay. Okay. Shutting down it's going to my wife. I it's down the whole recording. We're going to record, but we'll start against it. Call me back. But one of the scariest episodes of one of you that we have ever done is going to be happening in the beginning of October next year. It's an episode where Brandon's house is going to get broken into. We are in the middle of recording a very scary situation. Yeah. This came right in time for Halloween, and it was spooked tackler here. We are recording podcasts talking about some dumb movie that no one cares about and I turn around and there is someone in my hallway and. I hide Alex narrates. What happened? Let's go to the clip. And I'm glad that it's vailable in VHS. I think that's a weird marketing ploy because no one has a VHS of the fact that the printing in VHS. Seems like a waste of money. And that's probably why the ticket price for this particular film is higher it's niche, but I mean for the most part everything's knee as far as physical media goes, you only buy something if you really want it if you really want support it. What are you looking at? Is that two-thirds someone in your? Doc, do their sub guy. Oh god. He's going in your kitchen. God. Going through your kitchen drawers..
