"David sedaris joins us now from new york to talk about his new collection. The best of me david so happy to have you back on the podcast. Oh thanks pamela. So why this book now we should say. This is a collection of of your best work. Why did you decide to do this. Are we generally. I was gonna just do an audio book. And i discussed it with maya thomas who has always been my audio book producer. Just because i get a lot of audiobooks and listened to a lot of books. If i have two choices one audio book is like four hours long and the other one is like thirty five hours long. I usually go with the thirty five hour. And i think most my books are pretty short so i thought oh water night just do whatever. I considered a best work. We'll put it together and so it'll be a longer audio book and then my publisher said. Oh why don't we make it a book ball. And i should just like that. You can caved. is your preference for thirty five hour. Long audiobooks tied to your fit bit habit. Yes it is. You know. I just looked at the count of monte cristo. Because my sister amy head read it. That's fifty four our audio walk. We're could you walk with that. I can cover a lot of ground with account of monte cristo. The last time you were on the podcast it was to talk about your collection theft by finding in which you had many encounters over the years with people on the street and what i enjoy so much in this collection the best of me are they encounters in the airplane. I'm curious now if you're if you're having like a second wave of encounters on the street because you're spending so much time walking around driven by your fit bit around new york. Oh i mean. I'm spending a lot more time on the street but i think because maybe it's because people are wearing masks. We see more disconnected from one. Another i think you know when i did travel during this time it felt so good to be back in an airport so good to be back on an airplane. I felt so at home. And i felt like i back where i you know where i needed to be and backward. I belonged and all of it. You know even the long layover and the crummy hotel. All of it i welcomed it went down for breakfast. I had to go to indiana. And i went downstairs for breakfast and i brought my computer. 'cause i was going to work while at breakfast. Thought you idiot. You can't go breakfast <unk>. Tell with just your computer because there's going to be two. Tv's playing and there's gonna be music. You need your headphones to blot. All that out hired. I forgotten crazy. How much. I forgot just know the nine months that i wasn't allowed to travel. There are so many great airplane stories in this collection. So it's interesting to hear you say that you miss air travel because of your airplane stories sort of exhibit the worst of humanity and thinking. Probably the most obvious one is standing by which is just a classic. You really do still like air travel because to me it feels like you write about it. It brings out the worst in humanity. Remember when i was yelling. And i would watch like johnny carson and so of the comedians would talk about air travel and i thought gee dot they have anything else talk about. But and then as i grew older i realized. Oh that's what they spend all their time right. So that's where. I spent all my time and so that was why i had so many stories about it but i do think it brings out the course in people and also i think there's a real divide between people who travel a lot and people who don't when i went to north carolina couple months ago. I had a long layover in charlotte. And i said to hugh my boyfriend. Who's with me. Why are all these people traveling now. These people who haven't traveled in years and he said how do you know. They haven't traveled in years. I said there suitcases now like they weren't the suitcases with four wheels on them. There were the suitcases with two wheels. You know that people kind of lazily drag behind them see can trip over them right sign now of amateurs and he but because he doesn't travel that often he didn't know what i was talking about. Are there other ways in which airplane travel has changed that that will make its way into your work since corentin so many people are afraid to travel right now. I feel like bending over backwards to clean things. I mean i. It was interesting in north carolina. The governor put a mask mandate in place. Any just put it in place. And i would say maybe sixty percent of the people in the airport wore masks and the other forty war just really defiant expressions and then i traveled like a month later and then it was ninety. Nine percent of people had masks on. It

In late May of last year, a few weeks shy of her 50th birthday. My youngest sister, Tiffany, committed suicide. She was living in a room and a beat up house on the hard side of Somerville, Massachusetts, and had been dead the corner guest for at least five days before a door was battered down. I was given the news over a white courtesy phone while at the Dallas airport. Then because my plane to Baton Rouge was boarding, and I wasn't sure what else to do. I got on it. The following morning I boarded another plane, this one to Atlanta on the day after that, I flew to Nashville. Thinking all the while about my ever shrinking family. A person expects his parents to die. But its sibling I felt I'd lost the identity I'd enjoyed since 1968. When my brother was born six kids, people would say, How do your poor folks manage? There were a lot of big families in the neighborhood I grew up in Every other house was a fiefdom, so I never gave it much thought until I became an adult, and my friends started having Children. One or two seem too reasonable, but anything beyond that struck me is outrageous. The couple you and I knew in Normandy would occasionally come to dinner with their wrecking crew of three when they leave several hours later, every last part of me would feel violated..

"I wonder if new kids on the block is in this wax museum that would be a real injustice if that isn't using new kitchen the blocker in there. I hope so why? So who do you think deserves it more new on the block why I'm still here or they they're still there the crews? Yeah, they have a cruise. Yes. They work that cruise. Yeah. There shoveling coal into the engine. Okay. Crew. Yeah. Yeah. Get back to work. You don't even know their names, which would of their names, Jordan, Donnie, Johnny get back in there. Hey, Joey Jonathan and Danny Jonathan did you get those barnacles off the whole. No, I didn't. We thought we were going to perform no one's wanted to see you perform in eighteen years. Get those barnacles off the whole. I think it would be a really big injustice. If new kids on the block was not in the dreamland wax museum. Let me point out. Tom Brady isn't even from Massachusetts. He's from California. Oh, yeah. He's on cares. Oh, listen to this fact, just handed to me would be go Burke born in New York City, moved to Berkeley, California. And when you ask where's Conan O'Brien and the Boston wax museum. They say we don't need a cone. We've got a Whoopie Goldberg. In fact, I don't think she has any connection to Boston. That's ridiculous due to Bianca Cardozo. What did you do this into anything to her? This is ridiculous. This sounds to me like they were able to get their hands on a Whoopie, Goldberg whack statue. And they jammed it in their figuring most people wouldn't know. That's what this sounds like. This sounds to me like this is a wax museum without proper funding. Seriously. I have a theory what there used to be this ride at Disney called superstar limo, and you would go through this ride in there all sorts of celebrities. One of them was Whoopi Goldberg in the ride failed. Miserably navy Ebeid that guess what? What that's probably not even hitting. That is exactly what happened. They got a hold of a rogue what be Goldberg wax statue. And they said, you know, what this area here completely empty? We got nothing in probably one of the employee said people are asking about Conan O'Brien. And then Bianca Cardoza said look that costs money will we're going to do just go build a Conan O'Brien. I don't think so finding existing wack, and then someone said, but Bianca. Whoopie Goldberg isn't even from and she cut that person officer shot up. Issues. Go offer twenty bucks for the Whoopi Goldberg. Tell them we're not paying for the shipping. They gotta take a here themselves in a truck get it and fill out that space. We'll put a Red Sox cap on her. That's what happened. This is the same ride that the day. It opened was the day that Tom Cruise Nicole Kidman broke up, and they had statues of them in there. And so they pop their heads off and put in Tonio benders. Melanie griffith. Restore power monster. Yeah. Well, listen there is an existing Conan O'Brien statue. It's at Madame toussaud's in Hollywood. Unless they've melted it down, and I know waxes, a very valuable commodity. There's a wax shortage down the Conan O'Brien statue. But I think this is a great crime. Thank you very much, gene for bringing this to my attention. This is an abomination. Okay, it is.

"Me beef. I knows meats and butcher boxes. What I likes to eat. Conan. It's time to listen to some voicemails these frighten me, you know, that right? I know you always expect the worst. I do I clench up childhood anxieties, this triggers me because I never know what someone's going to say what if they say something mean or and that's going to be in my head when I'm trying to sleep tonight. But anyway, this is the world we live in. So let's do it. Disturbed. All right. Let's listen to the first voicemail equipment. If gene I live in Boston. And I recently visited the dreamland wax museum here, and they were all that icons that they've been asked my all the Tom Brady. Even Tom Brady's wife. So I if there wasn't a Coenen wax figure, and I decided to write the director Email, and I said you have Conan O'Brien Weck secure. Why why not? And here's a response IT. We do not have Conan O'Brien, take you. We do have Goldberg thanks for your time. Bianca cardoza. Here's my question. Why are they compare you to be Goldberg and why does the dream team? Not like you. Well, gene, again, this is this is disturbing. I'm disturbed to. I think is blows that I'm not in this. I've never heard of this museum. I was just going to ask if you've ever been there. No, I've never heard of it. I don't know where it is. But if they're talking about Boston icons. Yes, I understand Tom Brady has to has to be in there. I agree. It's weird that his wife is in there as well. Because I think she's from Brazil. Yes, she's Brazilian. Yeah. So I don't get what that's all about. And I don't know why what be Goldberg's substitute for me. We're we're quite different is what Gobert from Boston wasn't even aware of. She was no idea. I don't think ever think about Boston. This feels like a great crime. Does this feels like one of the greatest injustices of the past fifty years, I'm including a lot of historical injustices in there, you mentioned that the directors Bianca Cardozo, I would urge our listeners to Email or write Bianca Cardozo at this. What's what's this museum cold? It's called the dreamland. Wax museum dream, Boston, Massachusetts, three wind wax museum. Well, does not make a dream land. To me sounds like a nightmare. Scape? If you're saluting Boston's and Conan O'Brien's not there. What are you really doing? Yeah. It's crazy. That's like saying, let's let's salute the famous people from Memphis and not having Elvis Presley in there. That's to me what it feels like. And I bet you they've had a lot of complaints about this. And I do every been heard of it before. Yeah. But I'm sure there's been a lot of complaints. There's actually there does exist.

"Well, it had David's tumor written on it. I think they knew what it was at the level of a college refrigerator. This is this is Coney yogurt mind David's tumor. But I think like if I lived in Florida, okay? Which is very likely. I think it would always be worth it to have a baby c could throw the placenta to gator. So now in cater with love percentage. So worth it to have the meaning then fathering being a mentor to this child and taking adoption. I just do it. So I could throw the placenta too. Well. I was excited to come in this morning and get the opportunity to talk to you. And I have a lot of gratitude for that. Because I'm an enormous fan of your mind. And this is a huge treat from me. Gosh, it's street for me to and you know, that's another thing. And I knew you came from a big family. But I think that's another reason that we could be friends. I always feel like people who come from big families. There's something in common, you know, Sarah, thyr and wife. Yeah, he comes from a big family. And I love the thyr fan. I love how you meet one. And you can tell that you're talking to a thyr my God. Yes. Yeah. It's not that they they do resemble each other. But their voices are like, but they just have a sensibility. That's similar. I love meeting people in big families who who who have that. And I think too I feel so bad for people who only children I think it's really important to be able to hide in a family, and I don't think. That glare. I don't think that attention is healthy in any way to get that much attention from from apparent. I just don't think it's good for anybody. I just got back, you know, from the holidays a while ago. And I so much about my life is we do the podcast the show. There's the the big Conan logo on urinal cakes at the office. I mean, it's just ridiculous. And I'm Anne. And that can get toxic. And then you go home, and nobody cares. They don't care. We all gathered around and they make fun of me. And I'm the butt of jokes. And you're right back in there. You're having some of the same arguments you had back, you know, twenty years before with the same people, and there's the same alliances, and as, you know, shifting alliances all the time, you know, it's fascinating. But incredibly comforting to go back and just be part of a larger unit again, I feel bad for with back pain. I feel really bad for people with Crohn's disease. But I think I feel worse for people who hate their families. And who say have got Christmas outta my goodness survive. I just think that something so fundamental to to to have gotten the short straw there. I feel so grateful to to just the to be related to people who I'm just crazy about. Yeah. Well, this is a nice we ended on a sweet note. We did. Is there anything I can mention it will help you in any way you so don't need my help. But anything like, you know, tuna David sedaris is you know, has a new sweater collection that he's putting out there. You know, David has a line of jewelry anything at all. I can mention that would help you in any way. Golly, that's awfully nice of you to offer. But I can't think of anything they're doing more of the same doing again say that well by far whether it was mentioned it to my wife, or anyone I ran into today who knew I was going to be talking to you. If you could just know how much their faces lit up and how excited they were four. Me. That's a nice thing. That's a nice thing for you to know. You've made a lot of people very very happy David sedaris, what a thrill seriously. Thank you very much. Thank you counted. Good, man. We just ended with a firm hint shake..

"That's fantastic. I absolutely love that. When I go through your work. And I've enjoyed you work in the past voice thought, I I really do feel kinship with David sedaris. And I do think that there is a lot of similarities here, and then occasionally I'll hit something where I think God. No, he's completely unlike me, I would never do that, for example in calypso have this obsession with having a benign tumor removed, and then you wanna feed it to a snapping turtle. Isn't that correct? Yeah. No, don't you say. Yeah. Like, and I always don't don't don't you just gave me this face of you just gave me this face of. And your point is as if I said, yes, sometimes they get hungry, and I go through a drive through window, which your problem. I always thought that if you had your tonsils removed your cat would want to eat or if you put your time for in cats bull your candidate. And so I had this tumor, and there was a snapping turtle. I was going to feed regularly. Our beach house, and I thought I'm gonna feed my tumor to this napping. Turtle bet he'd like it. And the doctor said, I'll cut it out of you. But you can't have it. It's against the law for me to give you anything that I've got out of you. So I was complaining about that on stage when nine this woman came up and said, I'll cut it out of U N delay keep it just a doctor this, by the way, I read the story. And this is unbelievable to me. Please proceed. She's doctor. I'm not a surgeon. And I said, well, that's good enough. And she cut it out of me and she shipped on ice North Carolina NFL into a snapping turtle who loved it. Yup. Okay. This isn't something anybody does first of all you let someone perform surgery on you who may not be qualified certainly has no access to the drug profile. You let this person a Cup this tumor out of you, then so you up as ever called in in the story, then it's shipped to North Carolina. You couldn't find the turtle for a while. So you kept the tumor in the freezer. That that I I was with you with if someone removes something from my body, and I did have my appendix removed ahead an emergency appendectomy when I was in these sixth grade on I remembered asking him if I could have the appendix, so I'm with you up to that point. But I didn't wanna feed it to a turtle that crosses the line. With me. I was willing to eat it myself to readjust my own proteins, which I think is vastly more normal than your weird compulsion to feed it to a turtle. But you kept it in the freezer is that mean, the people were opening the freezer and saying a what's that put that can I can I put that on my ice cream? And you're like, no, no, no, that's my benign tumor..

"And you want your family with you? And you want all of you guys to be together. And it's this I understand that feeling you want to gather everyone together, and especially in light of losing your sister. You want everyone together, I think it was very generous. There's a real generosity of spirit in that act to me. Well, I we when my mother died. She was kind of the one that got everybody together. And then when she died it'd been years since we'd all got we all gathered together. So I got this beach house, and then we start. Getting together twice a year. And it's been real. It's true. I can't think of anybody at rather. It's where we we went when we're children. So it's kind of weird to be there now except were old, and he spent a lot of time thinking how did that happen? How did we get to be this old? But I don't know I feel like whenever my family's all together at the beach. I walk away with the story of some kind and is never ninety or anything big that happens as just just exactly the kind of story that comes from being around your family. And and I'm always surprised when people come up and say, I can't believe your family's still talking to you. After the things I think my faction toward them is evident, but very very evident. Yeah. But I wouldn't say I love them so much. I I never I think it's written in there that I love them. But I would never say it. And so I think a lot of people if they don't see. Those words I love them so much than they think you don't love fact that that you and Hugh have all these people in this house, and you're all together that's in itself. That's a that's a big undertaking to have family under your roof and probably not always easy. And but I like that you seem to have this instinct as a writer, and I think as a person to pull all the hot coals right next to each other and see what happens way to put it right down. And you know, we just did we can you just call the next book Conan for God's sake. We just bought the house next to our house because they people by these house and tear them down and build these mcmansions and put pools, and then all you. Here's Marco Polo Marco Polo, all the time. But the hands all have like pun names. Yes. Years is C-section. Right. We changed it to the C-section. But then we bought the house next door.

"Podcast become a better speller. I saw a friend yesterday. He sky is I don't wanna make them self conscious. But I always pull out my notebook when I'm around him because he says things like oh my God. That's so true. That's so funny. When you've written I think you filled six notebook since you've been talking to me. Well, I'm really feeling like we could be friends who do you now who has nine eight castrated Rams and one that's not castrated me. You didn't have to say me at the end. Do you realize how unnecessary that was just what David guests? Six less Poggi tars Omede of Gouda cheese. Guess what? The me. Wait. So you have Rams, and yeah, one is castrated I lost mall. One is uncast rated and all the others are castrate. It's called a it's called a weather. Okay. So I have eight weather's Aram. Why did you leave one? How did you choose which one would go on castrated a farmer? We're we live. He was looking for a pasture to put his sheep in. And we said we've got a pasture in our backyard, and he came and he said he fixes fence up a little bit and be perfect. And so he moved him in your backyard and chocolate colored and they are fantastic. Were you there when they were castrated? No. But I don't think it's like. I'm always so fascinated by these men who feel like their lives would be so much better. If only they could have their foreskin back, you know, like people who are really angry about being circumcised. But a win. I think I've met anybody who wants their foreskin back is that a real thing. Yeah. Thing men who feel really angry and cheated that they were circumcised could cut people complain about anything people people feel pretty strongly about it assigning a book the other day. And I said to this woman, she's just a baby boy. And I said did is he circumcised and she said unbeliev he was born with anything he didn't need. And I'm thinking like, I I don't know. I just billable cord. A really good. Write it down. Thought of that first thing they rip off of you. You don't need this anymore. Because what I was thinking was okay. Your son's going to grow up. Yeah. And he's going to take his pants off. He's going to be with somebody go home with somebody, and he's gonna take his pants and underpants off the look on that person's face is what should be in your mind when you circumcise you saw right? I ask people this couple years going thought it was really good question. It was I was on tour, and I did a poll. Do you think Barack Obama's circumcised or uncircumcised? And I feel like most women went with the last penis. They saw that's fascinating. Really good question is the tradition in Kenya. I'm just curious. But if he had a dad who is African right, then how does that affect the time? He was born it was common to circumcise all boys and the United States, and they were born and now it's less common. Yeah. It's fascinating. To me. I didn't know that. There are people who are angry about that. And I'm guessing it's because it decision was made when they weren't conscious of you know, that it's almost like how dare anyone make that decision for me. But I don't think you wanna be getting circumcised when you're nineteen years old. I would imagine that would be incredibly painful and have everyone gathered for the Brits. If you're Jewish and you're nineteen years old, and everyone got and you've decided I want this done, and you have to have it done in front of six hundred people in a synagogue, my favorite joke that I love to do what a Bris to say at the party afterwards. My God this column Ariz fantastic. And then say, we're not serving calamari. I've done that. So many man. Cullimore is fantastic, sir. We're not serving column Ari. And then I go.

"I like in terms of I was looking one time on on a website. And there was something about this screenwriter. And I don't know why people don't like the screenwriter. I I don't understand why I think our movies are chiming, and but people have always like dumped on her. So people are saying awful things. And this guy who named unicorn dog somebody said, oh, I'd like to beat her up or something new the corn dog wrote. I've my feelings exactly that's how I feel about David sedaris only more. So and I thought do to unicorn dog and this was like eight years ago. And I think about all the time. I think what an I do unicorn dog it. I I hate the thought that there's somebody out there who hates me so much and I don't even right. I it's not like. I can call them up right him and say why what did I what did I do to you corn dogs? You know enough. My very first comment on a website, and I left my complete full name. And it wasn't a criticism of anybody. Somebody said what what is this guy wearing and and this like a detachable come to our some collar from a couple of seasons ago when I, but I didn't realize when I did they gave me the option of coming up with the codename. And I thought then teams cowardly to me. Well, I've had guests tell me that they'll they'll come on the show, and then they'll come on the show the next time, I remembered someone specifically, and I'll say it actually was Gary Shanley, and in the commercial break, he told me I was really upset about some of the comments about my last about my last appearance. Some people said some mean things and I said to him in the band's playing in the background. It's supposed to be just all fun show business, and it's he looked really upset. And I said, Gary, why would you ever go on the internet? And examine all the comments. I it's the last thing in the world I would ever do. Because if someone as brilliant Garry shandling can get his feelings hurt by an anonymous person saying I didn't like the shirt he was wearing or used to like him. But now, I don't or whatever he shouldn't be exposed to that it seems absurd that Garry shandling would be taken down in any way by a random comment by guy. We don't know who this person is now unicorn dog I happen to know is a very fair critic and a big fan of mine huge fan, and I've has an unerring eye for talent. So. But no, I I guess one of the questions I wanted to explore with you was your popularity has been at all tricky for you. Well, like I on this little tiny lecture tour right now. Usually I'll go to like forty cities in forty days, and I'd do it twice a year. Right. And I've just been to like, I don't know eight cities on this little trip. And so I like to sign books before the show and after and before it gives you an idea of who's in the audience. So then if someone meets before show, they're on your side. I mean, if you have a nice encounter, and then if something doesn't work they'll say, well, I know him, and I plus it makes me excited because I'm meet somebody. And I think she's in the audience, and unlike it, and I'd like meeting people that way because I'm not so good at having friends we can be friends for two minutes. But if I don't say anything, then you're gonna come up, and you're gonna say. Read your first book when? You don't. I don't want. That's just making me uncomfortable. And so I'll say I'll just ask you a question. Yep. Right. God. Did anyone call you a whore today or something always a good ice breaker? Always the way to start. So we can just a little conversation that you didn't expect to have been..
