Wall Street fears volatility long after election day
"Let's start with election chaos kate I'll start with you is. That the thing that would cause markets to bulk like there has been this this increasing conversation about expectations of volatility. If there is a contested election, what does it mean for among other things the economy? Well. You know as I think a lot of us who cover the economy like to point out the stock market isn't the economy, but it's a really important. Part of it is important signals that it sends and right now I think that what we're hearing and seeing and a number of different ways is that Yeah Wall Street is getting nervous I. I. Remember a few weeks ago getting an analyst note from a research firm here in DC laying out all the various scenarios of what might happen and what kind of chaos it could trigger and it just seemed kind of surreal reading it and I asked one of the authors and he said we're just getting so many questions from our investor clients about this issue, they want to know what is going to happen. They WANNA be prepared. You know typically in history. We've had one one of two scenarios either Republican Windsor a Democrat wins in this time it's not clear or you know may we might might not be clear who the winner is for some time maybe the president could challenge legitimacy of the election. There's there's a lot that could happen in Wall Street does not like uncertainty. Yeah Gino what does it mean? If Wall Street starts to get nervous not that I think Wall Street's GonNa Swoop into the rescue here but you know what could that lead to? You know I think it's interesting because this isn't a scenario in which it's really easy to just come up with an immediate solution given enough pressure. You know it is probably the case that we are not going to happen immediate conclusion to the vote count where we're likely not going to know who won on election day, and that's not really a changeable fact. So some some period of uncertainty lies ahead of us I think the real question is whether this election ends up being contested I. think that's clearly the thing that makes investors most nervous right now and I I just don't know what happens in that. Instance because you don't see situation where it would really be in anybody's interest you know there's there's no, it's it's not obvious that a real plummet in stock prices would be the thing that would prompt president trump not to contest this election. Since you know presumably he he would only be contesting if he had already lost and so I think there's there's really opened brushes some real reasons for legal to be nervous in it. That's why you are seeing what keep mench in which is just you know investors increasingly kind of scratching their heads and and looking toward the future with a lot of a lot of uncertainty. Right. Well, the other thing that's happening with all of this uncertainty exacerbated by of course, the Supreme Court fight is is that Congress has I. Think has been pretty effectively taken off the ball with respect to relief, right? Kate. What happens if if literally no more help comes from Congress on top of everything else. That's right I mean it seems like there's a there's perhaps a bigger risk from that scenario for the economy right You know there might be some turbulence around or after the election we don't know what that looks like or how long stock market turbulence. But for the for the fundamentals of the economy we are right now in this period seems really critical. People are trying to figure out what is happening right now what what are we going to see in the data because of course in? The end of July these enhanced unemployment insurance benefits expired and I think that a lot of people who had been receiving those maybe they'd managed to save up some money. They were drying down savings. We didn't see an immediate drop off from the expiration of those benefits, but there are definitely signs that things are slowing and You know we've heard from a number of economists on. We heard it again from Fetterman Jay Powell this week that you know eventually with Out. More fiscal support we're probably going to start to see the negative effects from some of that relief and it's not just uninsured and empl unemployment insurance. It's you know extending credit for small businesses. It might be you know around another round of stimulus checks just to help give people a little more of a cushion. So those are things that both sides want but there are some bigger issues that are kind of keeping them from coming together on this effort DOES THIRTY SECONDS LEFT GINA? Where do you think whereas the urgency? What's IT GONNA. Take. Yeah I mean I think it is a really interesting question what we have seen some sort of centrist Democrats in moderate Democrats really starting to get a little bit nervous in maybe push for some sort of compromise which I think is probably the best hope for compromise before the election I've not heard that we're GonNa get there an instance that we don't. You know there are real risks for the economy ahead. If we do not as as Keith mentioned if we do not have some more spending here I think it's one thing that's worth noting. I think a lot of people are taking comfort in pretty solid economic data right now but. A lot of American households build up solid savings buffers off the spending that happened earlier, and now that is kind of getting worn down in. So at some point in time that they will get through that. Kate Davidson at the Wall Street Journal and Genus smiling at the New York. Times. Thanks so much you too. Thank you. Thanks smelly.

"davidson" Discussed on Slate's Culture Gabfest
"But knievel did give the museum some genuine artifacts from his career as a stunt performer including the nineteen seventy-two Harley Davidson xr seven, fifty on which she performed some of his most famous jumps. That x seven fifty is one of the crown jewels of the Smithsonian's motorcycle collection. But it's not only Harley Davidson that Paul has acquired, which makes sense. Harley is a story brands like Levi's our Coca Cola one that comically represents America to itself into the rest of the world. The Harley was actually given to the museum by a staff person back in nineteen forty seven. Paul garber was the first curator of what's now the Aerospace Museum He bought the bike after World War One in nineteen eighteen, it was used. It's a nine hundred thirteen model Harley Davidson about five horsepower and bought it for general transportation in one, thousand, nine hundred, and then started working the Smithsonian nineteen. Twenty. Use It as as his personal transportation and daily commuter years. Paul Johnston is an avid motorcyclist himself. He has a deep appreciation for harleys and he's followed the various ups and downs of the company mostly downs lately as you probably know, Harley is struggling a little bit. They just laid off several hundred staff to try and stay afloat. Davidson is hitting a major speed bump. Its most reliable customers have gotten old and newer generations don't seem as entranced by the Harley Mystique. Meanwhile. Standoff with President Trump has left Harley off balance scrambling to maintain its made in America image at home while fighting off tariffs from abroad. All this has left the company, a desperate crossroads, but it may have found a promising new direction. Earlier this year Harley brought in a new CEO replacing a twenty five year veteran of the company with a confident new leader from an unlikely industry. So their new CEO. had been like a footwear CEO. He came from Puma as a motorcycle purist are do you have any concerns about what he might do to this classic? Company? He might save it who knows.

U.S. National Debt on Track to Surpass Size of Economy
"The US has spent trillions of dollars fighting the coronavirus pandemic. All of that spending is pushing the nation towards a new milestone next fiscal year the Congressional Budget Office. Says US government debt is expected to exceed the size of the economy for the first time since World War. Two K. Davidson covers economic policy for the Wall Street Journal Hi Kate thanks for joining me Hi emery. Thanks for having me. So put this in context for us the last time the national debt was this high was World War Two, very different times in our history but these periods actually have a lot in common when it comes to national debt. That's right. The debt has been rising this spring in part because policymakers have even said, they view this moment as as a battle as almost a war against US global pandemic, they've spent trillions to try to cushion the economy from the negative effects who has businesses have closed down. Millions of people are out of work. They've approved a ton of money to get people enhanced unemployment. Benefits stimulus checks, emergency loans, and then also, of course, things like vaccine research and aid for hospitals. So all of that is going towards fighting would they do as this threat that's on on par with what we experienced during wartime. So the vast majority of this spending was, as you say to combat the coronavirus, can you detail some of the largest expenditures under those efforts? So the the? Biggest factors were, yes. All these stimulus measures I would say in the big ones were the the stimulus checks that went out. Remember most Americans got a twelve hundred dollars per person checks and and five hundred dollars for dependent children that was several hundred billion dollars. Congress also devoted a ton of money to the paycheck protection program. Those are those emergency loans for small businesses. That was another huge component between two bills. It was over five, hundred, billion dollars I think about six, hundred, billion actually, and then the third one is enhanced unemployment benefits. Stra six hundred dollar weekly checks that people have been getting on top of regular unemployment benefits. Those of course expired at end of July so that spending is coming down a little bit but all of those were. Big, pieces of this overall efforts to help the economy right now. Now, Congress is still debating whether to provide additional stimulus relief. How does the nation's debt load now play into these discussions among lawmakers? Well, I think it's it seems to be an important. Although both sides will sort of point fingers over whether these concerns are genuine Republicans have cited rising debt certainly is a big concern. A reason to be cautious about borrowing more Democrats are saying you know we we need to borrow now to protect the economy and it's worth it to take on more debt. If you're making sure that you're protecting economic growth on because leaving millions of people out of work at they're losing their homes businesses or closing can have long term negative effects on the economy. So they're saying it's worth it right. Now, and some of them are also pointing out that you know Republicans approved a very large tax cut a couple years ago that has constrained revenues and definitely both sides have approved big spending increases in recent years. So there's plenty of blame to go around but I think right now most people in most economists are saying debt should not be the top concern. So some some Republicans have acknowledged even some in the administration are saying look we we can't afford this right now especially, because interest rates are so low and we should do more. Right, and you spoke to some economists who said that despite the big economic contraction in the second quarter, this could have been much worse without some of the fiscal support detailed. That's right and we can see that in the data there are some some groups that break this down they look at the contributions of federal spending to overall GDP and right there was a a big drop off in the second quarter but we saw that fiscal stimulus spending by the federal government actually contributed but had a very positive effect in in other words supported supported economic output and made sure that it wasn't even worse. So you know just because of the way that. GDP is calculated and that's that's fairly typical during a recession. We see governments come in and do it the question right now as well. How much more support is the economy really need and I, think some people are worried that there. We could see because of these debt concerns we could see a situation where what we saw after the last recession where some people argue Congress pulled back on this support to quickly they pulled back too soon and that just really slowed the recovery. So so some folks are saying look don't make that mistake this time around yes. Debt is very high but we we can afford it. There's still big demand for US

"davidson" Discussed on ESPN On Ice with Wyshynski and Kaplan Show
"Hey, emily. Greg, how does it feel to have grown up as a fan of a team that has the resources to fix the NHL draft lottery? I feel blessed. I think all my sporting choices have been blessed. I also chose Chelsea my club and obviously have a Russian oligarch running us. So things are going to turn out our way, and here we now have the New York Rangers and the oligarchs of the ping pong balls that have twisted in our favor. So yeah, it's been a really great twenty twenty for me personally my favorite thing about the conspiracy theories of the NHL. Fix the draft for the Rangers because that guy dropped the ball that was either filled with helium or had some sort of magnetic on it to allow it to travel to the top of the lot of machine. My Fair conspiracy theory is the fact that they did this with James. Dolan still owning the Rangers knowing the heat that he and Gary Bettman have had through the years. It's pretty hilarious like of all the guys the NHL is. Just two guys the NHL is not bending over to help. It's like Eugene Melnyk and James Dolan. About correct. So we're going to bend over backwards. Wouldn't you think they would've fixed it for Connor mcdavid not to have him end up in. Edmonton exactly. Exactly. All right. We got a big show today but real real on the lottery the team that broke your heart didn't win the lottery was who? I really felt for the Minnesota while there's something about bill garin walking into this situation that feels tragic to me like he inherited a really bad roster with bad contracts and I, feel like a real capris office coming into the League and it's awesome and I just wish that he had a cool fun young wing man that's fast to come in with them. Yeah. I I agree with you I feel like the wild wild before caprice off it was like Mary Gabric and that's it. As. Far As homegrown offense ital- lake me for being a team Minnesota they've kind of been like rudderless and you know the most personality they ever had was when they spent a billion dollars to bring into other guys from outside the organization and even that did really produce results. So it would have been cool to see Minnesota become the team of Alexis law near but but sale Avi they simply didn't have the resources to pay off the Ernst and Young Guy and win the lottery. Appreciate you thanks Jim Dolan coming up on It's it's the price of the beer at MSG. It's forever going higher and giving them all the resources. Coming up in this edition of ESPN is we have John Davidson Jd, our old friend president of the Rangers talk about their big week or Awkward Week Actually A-plus Sarah. McClellan Star Tribune Minnesota Wild writer speaking of the wild who was up in Edmonton. kind of bubble adjacent but also inside the bubble to cover games, obviously the wild done but Sarah's going to join us to talk about her experiences and then obviously what should be an interesting season for Minnesota. All that and more obviously playoff hockey to on this edition of ESPN and ice. Let's start the show proper shelley from the ice to your ear buds a podcast about hockey featuring things to do with hockey from your friends at ESPN. It's ESPN on ice with with Shitski and Kaplan. It's ESPN is the podcast for. Talks about hockey I'm Greg Ski Senior Nhl Writer. Kaplan national NHL reporter. And if we're going to start talking about anything, it's going to be you got it. The fourth longest game in National Hockey League history five overtimes over six hours long Seth Jones I tallied it up Seth Jones skated longer in one game than the total running time of the nineteen forties. Disney. Classic Dumbo. This is the kind of stats you can get from this podcast. What an incredible, and here's the thing about the five overtime game with Tampa and and and Columbus. It was actually really entertaining like like it was it was a wasn't a slog. It wasn't just like I mean people were gassed by the end for sure but lake I thought the game play was actually pretty good for most of the five overtimes. Totally agree and maybe that's because the refs just let them play. We're not calling anything. But Yeah No. If you want some other funds stats, the lightning had eight shot from the exact same amount that the rangers had in three games in their timing bubble. So that's my favorite. Began no, it was an incredible game I. think it reminded us. Pie We love playoff hockey. There's nothing to it Steph Jones. I really feel like Tortorella is violating some Canadian labor laws with the way he's using him, but we are keeping our great American hope this guy can do it. All I swear to you watching the TV. I tried to watch play where Jones wasn't on the ice and I felt like it was never happening. Yeah. It's going to be great to see him with a gold medal around his neck at the next Olympics. Here's the thing. You bring up the penalties there's been this debate. I think Mike Milbury helped spark it by taking a picture of the space needle in Toronto and three didn't get. Less as. Motorola Razor Oh God. It's like the only way that could that picture could be less clear as he had like a court illustrator drive for him as he was standing there and then tried to take a picture of it listen he sparked this debate about whether or not marathon overtimes should end with a tweak to the overtime rules I I don't think he was saying we should go directly to a three on three or or a shootout and get the word shootout of your shootout out of your mouth. It's never gonNA come in house over Gary Bettman said body. The. But I think he was making a point that others have made over over time, which is like when you get past three overtimes like for the sake of health for the sake of can the kids see the end of the game on all that like maybe then go to four on four, go to three on three ultimately, I'd like to see it left up to the players like maybe the votes and says, you know what? Maybe we don't need five overtimes I think most of them would vote against it and say, let's just keep playing. But. I am curious to know what you think about at some point maybe getting away from the five on five marathon overtime thing and trying to develop a way to have these games end before they cross the six hour mark. I you forgot to mention the number one reason why we cannot have shootouts in playoff hockey and that's because our dear colleague. John Buccigross, create an entire economy on the overtime challenge, and we'll put them out of business. We can't. Insists no, we can't. We can't do about. That Yeah you know I was thinking that as well and I was thinking okay. If this is four on four, this would probably end sooner if this was three on three definitely ends sooner. But I'm not necessarily sure that it has to sooner and I think that a lot of the discourse last night was because there were so many games happening in the bubble because it literally moved the game one of the hurricanes and Bruin series to the next day. This is unusual typically not having these peewee style tournaments reverend gotta get off the Ice Ninety minutes to disinfect the benches, which by the way just like take a pause of how ridiculous that is. They're putting all these precautions to making this bubble safe tasting everybody every day, and then there's a little things they do like. Well, we have to spend ninety minutes to disinfect the benches. And then they're all going to spit and Claude each other it's working it's working though party it's working against. Exactly I feel like you would be arbitrary to decide. Okay. After the third overtime period, then we go to foreign four, and then at the fifth, we go to three thousand three like you said, it would go to a player vote likely and I don't think the players would go for it. You probably right what they should go for is this and what the NHL should go for is this. We had five overtime last night. Okay. So that is three periods of regulation..
David Archer previews the Atlanta Falcons
"The Atlanta Falcons will do so with a former Falcons quarterback. Now he is their longtime color analysts on the radio network for Atlanta. And that is David Archer. David Hope all is. Well. Thanks for doing this. When we look at the Falcons, they made a big offseason acquisition getting Todd Gurley We don't know where the health is of Todd Gurley. What do you expect at a Todd Gurley coming over from l. A to Atlanta for this upcoming season? Well, be honest with you. I think we're expecting a lot of early and mainly in the Red zone. If you look at Todd Gurley's numbers, even with with so called quote unquote down near Around 900 yards rushing, still had 12 touchdowns. All 12 of those touchdowns came in the red Zone, and I think that Atlanta if they could find a way to run the football down close Help three up the talented weapons that Ryan has on the perimeter. Now, listen, you have a little bit more of a potent attack a little bit more looking a little bit more like what? You looked like a 16 when Avante Freeman and Tevin Coleman. We're carrying the ball down there close and created that problem in the run game. Atlanta has not had that over the last couple of seasons. I think that's where they expect Todd Gurley to make his main hey is down there in the red Zone. With the way that you probably have to manage his reps as a running back the rest of the running back room. Is there something that jumps out to you? Yeah, I think it's a good group. Really Do I think that when you look at Brian, Ill in the way, Brian Gillis Kamani together that Hawkins drafted a couple of years ago, Brian Handsome solid moments a year ago. Quadri Allyson. Kid at Pittsburgh rookie from a year ago. Uh, kind of woke himself. A little bit of a roll is a short yardage guy. Â£225 Goal line Guy, four touchdowns. Hopefully, you know, Smith can come back. He was injured in the game a year ago. I believe against the Rams in which he was trying to pick up a Blitzer, which he shouldn't be here should be doing, but he is an outstanding receiver out of the backfield. And a good change of pace back at the back, So they get to three young guys that I think you could lean on. And like you said, Take some of that. Load off. Assad, Girl. Let's get to the next down. And when we do so, we take a look at Matt Ryan and Julio Jones. The two big names in that organization. Do you still believe that this team could be a play off team once again with Matt Ryan and Julio Jones? I do, but it's you know, obviously, it's about you know your supporting cast and you do some things on the other side of the ball, and I'm sure there's a question you've got to worry about the defense's side the football, But there there's a little area in the offensive line. The left guard has been a little bit leaky, right guard's been a little bit leaky because of some injuries and things that they could shore up that into your part of the offensive line. Ryan's Like most classic quarterbacks climb in the pocket. They got to be able to give him that opportunity. Do so if you get into your pressure and accurate from problems, one game will help in that regard, but Yeah. Julio Jones, 16 seconds, 1300 yard seasons. Matt Ryan, nine consecutive 4000 yard seasons. I don't see the one those guys backing off. When you talk about that offensive line to follow up on that I'm a big fan of Matt Hennessy. Being a temple grad, really smart football player puts in a lot of work. Is he going to make an immediate impact in your number one? Yeah, There's always a question that he's certainly in the mix to be the starting guard. There's no question about that. I think that there's ah lot excitement around when he brings the table and and obviously the heir apparent, Alex Mack, probably its center. So Alex back in a little bit longer to still have a good football any But I need to put some guys around him that Khun taken, it could be in there and we had German Brown and James Carpenter guys that could not stay on the field. There was some solid moments from those two big veteran players, but they did not stay on the field and consistency. In the interior specialist that left guard spotted Kennedy ultimately will probably win that job and be the starter that guard let's get to the next down. All right, David Archer. When they flip the switch here and go to the other side of the ball defensively, it was an up and down year for the defense, but it seemed like they did finish in a better spot than what they did earlier on in the season. You could probably say that for the entire team with the Atlanta Falcons this division. Is loaded with offensive talent. You know what the Saints are. Now you have Tom Brady and the division with Tampa Bay, and I'll be curious to see what Teddy Bridgewater does with the Panthers. What's your read on the Falcons defense entering 2020 Well, it's an uncertain situation obviously went on God. Dante Fowler, Dad's pressure off the edge contact. McKinley realized what they thought they had when they drafted him a couple of years and the number one spot picked up Charles Haley, who, ironically, was in the same draft. And raided a route the same attack McKinley are Charles Harris. I'm sorry. Charles. Charles Charles Haley. Right way. I'd like to have the guy that was rushing the pastor there for both the Cowboys in the 40 Niners. That would be great, but Harris. He does have some raw talent there. Can't he realize that I'm the Falcon Tutelage will have to wait and see Grady dear. It's an emerging star in the tackle position and Marlon Davidson, Vienna and an interesting ad, a guy that has the versatility to play inside. Maybe in past situations and also play the perimeter as a 34 defensive didn't run down situations. The answer at all Burn second round draft pick of the fact that they think they've upgraded their defensive line. It'll have to be upgraded because you get extremely young secondary. Probably gonna have a rookie a corner starting your nickels, a second year guy in your other corners of third year, guys, So there's a lot of young players on the perimeter need to get some pass rush speed up the thought process for the quarterback. Let's get to the final down. Alright. I'm surprised that Dan Quinn is Bacca's the head football coach for the Lancer Falcons. What does he have to do this year to keep his job and Is that seats the warm because, like I said, I was surprised that they brought him back for this year. It is warm. I think that it's fortunate they brought him back because of the current situation with the pandemic and the uncertainties, so some continuity certainly has played into Atlanta Falcons off season. I think they've had a solid offseason, much as you can, with the limitations. They're attached to this year, So I think that it was good in retrospect that, uh, Mr Black decided to keep Dan Quint on, but I think he's got there. They've got a bit pushed for a playoff spot. I think they've got to be. They can't come out of the box one in seven. It's got to be a team. It's in the hunt of the entire way. As you said, it's going to be outstanding division with outstanding quarterback play, but they have to be in the hunt to be a part of the postseason play. If they do that. And I think the fans will be a little bit of stab on the wound for the fans. But if you get out to a slow start, it would not surprise me. If if Mr Blank made some kind of decision mid season on coach Boy and I think, coach when is the right guy for the job Now it's put up or shut up. He scored a touchdown will go for two here Oscar. One more question This team was 11 5 We all know the deal they were in the Super Bowl blew the 28 23 lead. The next year, they did go 10 and six, the last two years. It's seven and nine. If you had to identify the biggest reason why this team has regressed, and I know they've had some injuries to but overall if it's not the health of the team, what's the biggest thing that you look at? Why this team wasn't able to recreate that magic from 2016 and 2017? I think their inconsistency ball on both sides of the football in conversion, down situations and in the red zone. I think Atlanta's done a great job of moving the ball from 20 to 20 But when they get in the red zone, they bogged down and settle for too many threes. And I think in turn the defense's side of the football. What about 22 23 scoring defense coming up 25 points a game. They've got to find a way to get more stops in the red zone. That's probably the answer that you could probably get from all teams struggled and not made the playoff teams, but I certainly think That that's identifiable with the Falcons over the last couple years, the inability down deep in the red Zone both on offensive defense, Julio Jones, he's Ah Hall of Fame player. We all know that one of the better wide receivers in the league He's only had one year of double digit touchdowns, going back to 2012 when he had 10 TUC maybe 10 touchdowns in his fortunes this year. Well, I think he's certainly capable of it. But you got an outstanding receiver on the other side of Calvin Ridley, who's realized his abilities down in the red Zone Pretty close. I think Aidan hearse is going to be a seamless transition from Austin Hooper tight end spot So there are a lot of weapons from that Ryan to get the football too. Don't forget Todd Gurley and how good he is at the back catching the football as well. So I I would say no, I think he's going to be 89 touchdowns. I don't think he goes double digits, but I think there's a lot of guys around him. They're going to score touchdowns. Look for guys somewhere between 13 14 guys catch touchdown passes issue. Say that we appreciate it. Thanks so much. You be well, my

So you know the last two months I haven't practicing hard but there's there's a practice shape and there's match shape. It's hard to really get back into your match shape until you play match. So.

What's the level play? Overall? It's been high I. Mean I've played tennis twenty years because of the incentives this year online means finals, winters, It's intense. The teams are into it i. mean every you really feel like everyone's kind of laying it out there and It's made it better. You know I it's fun of the past but these incentives, I, it's it's up the level and there's a few more come on. There's a the teams kind of gathering around over a little bit more.

Jochen Zeitz on the Power of Fashion to Drive Sustainable Change
"Good afternoon you can. How are you today? I'm very good high Iran from America. You're in new. Mexico is that right. Yes shattering at home because our officers are still closed until later this month. Okay and tell us a little bit about where you're at in New Mexico. You have a home there. I know but you. You spend your time in quite a few different places. So why did you choose New Mexico as a place to sit this quarantine out because Just being appointed to the position of senior and president of Davidson then the company's movable key and to and I'm only one time zone away from Milwaukee so I'm headed. Us publicly listed company now. And and hence. Why I'm a US together with God it well that I guess. Pratt for practical reasons that makes perfect sense though. I hear that New Mexico's also very beautiful and I can imagine that doesn't hurt. It certainly doesn't enter this still lots of opportunity to ride a motorbike as well. You know. Yuck and before we get to the topic at hand I think you know that This week on the business of fashion. We've really been focusing all of our content and discussions around building a responsible business so it strikes me as very interesting that you've taken this new role as the president and CEO Partly Davidson because apart from the fashion industry and maybe the Energy Industry the transport industry is one of the most damaging industries in the world when it comes to our planet and so I know you have this incredibly long and sustained career in focusing your professional time and energy on building more responsible sustainable businesses. So you can you tell us a little bit about you know why this opportunity at Harley Davidson was so appealing to you. Well first of all because I believe that sector leaders and iconic brands have a tremendous opportunity to contribute to a change in consumer behavior. As a whole and I've done that in my boss lie that coma as both carrying also helping them said business. The Independent initiatives at the time being called. Ppo hold now carrying. And I just believe that sector is an iconic brands have that opportunity and we should use it as a as a way not just to be more responsible but the actually looking at it as an opportunity for jobs in the market. You're seen as a kind of turnaround specialist. You know. You've gone in from a very young age at Puma. I think you were the youngest. Ceo in Germany of a public company. At that time. And you took Puma and really help to not just turn it around from a business standpoint but also really inject some of these principles That we've been focusing on this week at B. O. F. into that business so I guess you know in the first instance someone who's operated in this space for a very long time. I mean how is it that you defined what a responsible business means now but a sustainable socially responsible business means how do you articulate that to people in your teams or elsewhere when you're trying to kind of gain further? Bienne that this is the way you more businesses need to be thinking your lipid limit. Stop with the first part of your statement rather than Christian and calling me a turnaround specialist. I would look at myself as as a change. Agent more than a turnaround specialists and the foster. The world changes the boy. I need to be a change agent and an still change it. What you do in Your Business and I guess ozone our private life if you look at how the world has changed especially in the last few months so I don't look at myself of turnaround specialist but somebody that's challenge the status quo and to come back to your question is when you when you look at the State of planet. Today we recognize that we are taking more resources away from old planet leaving if irreparable damage that means we have to change and hence we cannot just look at shareholder. The value growing a business any longer but we have to look at it responsibly. But at the same time also as an opportunity and how we can actually do better as a business but doing so by keeping our stakeholders robin just showers minded. Our Planet is key stakeholder because without our planet we won't be able to function so that's clear and then the corona virus crisis hit in the last few months and businesses throughout various sectors. Have been hit hard including Harley Davidson the industry that we work in the fashion industry. I mean how. How do you see this kind of responsible? Business thinking in light of the crisis that we're now all experiencing both from kind of public health and an economic standpoint. I'd say even going into the crisis you start to see change. In a lot of companies more and more companies that may be compared to five years ago where it was handful of select leaders and companies that we're promoting a more responsible way of doing business And I think this is only going to accelerate. I think investors are asking the question that was one of the missing links in the past that quite often investors. We're not really looking. Yes G. or sustainability as a as a an important Harrasment based on which one should just judge investment. That has been happening. I actually see this accelerating post-crisis that you can make the business case for a planet And you can say what we experiencing now with. The virus is just a false way of experiencing climate change that will happen over decades but the resolves is creeping change or planet which will have negative impacts on how live operate and work hence something. We need to get our hands around on. This virus is is a testament for a needed cross change in order to deal with a much bigger crisis that the would it be affecting our lives wrong world in twenty thirty years to call. So we've been talking this week as I mentioned about. You know the idea that. The fashion industry needs to clean up. Its Act and you have the very unusual position now of WHO's operated right at the very heart of the fashion industry as you mentioned both at home on caring and I know you stepped out of the industry some time ago but I'm sure as an observer and you know someone who was kind of closely embedded in this industry previously. You've been watching and I'm curious to understand your like. How do you see the fashion industry now? In light of this need for the industry to clean up its act and you know some of these things that you were talking about for years. These principles around sustainability and creating a business that simply extract resources from the planet and exploit people businesses that really found a way of operating while respecting these different stakeholders. I mean as a as a as a former insider now an outsider. What are your thoughts now on the fashion industry on this journey of of of kind of shaking things up when I look at every crisis in opportunity. It's an opportunity to really look at your own south. It's an opportunity to look at Your Business and how you operate and say what can we the essentially change to adjust our says to the new noma coming out of this crisis. I would say it's it's a given that they will be do a which is affecting our lives which is effective way effecting the way we we by the way we triple. A. And our consciousness about critically shes of our world advising domestically I think that's if businesses don't ask themselves that question you know you would be history of rather than the future attempts to fashion industry. I always believe that you need to embed sustainability into the DNA of Your Business and of your brand. You don't want to be the one shouting. We are sustainable. Be less understandable and others Jimmy. It's a definition of quality and a new way of looking at what is quantity in the future versus what was deemed the poss.

"Yeah. It's very true actor. Also yes reno. Nine on one arrested development will and grace yes. Nobody's nobody's the show. Nobody Watch Larry Dorf. Yeah so you guys ended up being writing partners. Larry was in growlings with me. Same with Rachel and we the three of us were working on all these warner brothers things. He's like looney tunes. And and Rachel and Leery right on Mike Tyson me Rachel leary basically writing the episode so your experience on the fringes fringes of kids television inform. Nobody's yeah and then we and then we shot seasons of that. So what's it like being funny out in Hollywood these days Was it relaxing stress. I think the one thing I didn't think about as a career in the in the comedy side. I did not think this through one. I think there's a lot less money in it than I my fantasies and maybe also that changed over time with all these channels but but it's like why else would I have had a television show like you know th there's so many choices now of course it's all less money but then the other thing that I didn't think about is when you become an adult like it's just hard jobs are hard and then you have your life and then you go to your job and your job is supposed to be laughing all day but then maybe a bunch of things went terrible in your life. It's like now I should have been dramatic and if I was writing on you know. Svu Law and order. And it's all about you know some horrible thing with the kid that got murdered then when your life goes bad you come to work. It's fine you you write a thing about a kid that got murdered but then you don't have to pretend to be laughing so that's I think my advice ity get into drama. You know like why comedy. It's hard to keep laughing. Every redone voices. I do voices occasionally for these guys. I played who I play a hairdresser on one of the robot chicken sketches I mean the star wars ones but then like the one I thought. Oh this is definitely. I should do this one. They gave at the Seth Macfarlane. Oh and not have enough bullshit Ville do come on I wrote it. You don't get to cast it no but it was like come on. I would have been fine fine. I don't even know different. There have been no drop off. I'm telling you Seth Macfarlane Davidson..

"You're sitting there at Warner brothers. Yeah in an office and the phone rings. No Sam Peter Comes. In and Peter was he was given a mandate to start going down the path of trying to get into adult comedy for Warner Brothers and then he comes the Ozzy's like we have this thing with Mike Tyson and so they already had a sizzle reel. which was Mike Tyson Andrew dice clay? I believe was in it. And maybe it was like Some old PANAPA Ribeira characters would pop up so and then I was like you know. Tyson had appeared in the hangover which I thought that looked very funny to me. I didn't see people haven't seen the hangover. He at least that looked like good use of Mike Tyson. But by the time we were GONNA use it I was like this is lane lane. The it didn't seem funny to me and so I was already to tell Peter no and I did and then because I was like the first time I had turned down a job Bob and then Peter goes please and then I say yes. Wow I was real push. Oh yeah that was easy yes but then it became fun because I did right. I wrote like I five outlines for the first five episodes again just like thinking. This is what I would do to make this funny if you like it. Great if you don't like it I don't care I'm gone and and then lezo liked it He he must have seen the outlines and he liked it and we went into production and then it became Super Fun to work John once we got the cast in place and it's really is very fun to work on and I I find it very funny. I mean it's like it hasn't been McDonald. Who wouldn't laugh at McDonald? You'd have to be crazy. Yeah so you wrote some outlines laser light that you started writing scripts and then then so I guess we'd probably written like five scripts before that fateful encounter with Mike Tyson at his house at five in the morning. I'd never because we were recording any of them yet. We were just writing. A maybe proof of of concepts guests staff wrote half dozen scripts. Yeah Yeah I think that's right and then it was time like okay. Well we can really do this. That's record so you got news that it had been an ordered. Yeah and then you have to go record Mike House in Vegas. Yeah that was the shocker. But then from then on he became it became fun and I love of Mike Tyson. It'd be I would be one of those people if Mike Tyson goes crazy. And he like King Kong murders a bunch of people And takes you know goes goes crazy with his fist full of unbridled anger like the hulk. If that happens I would be one of those jobs on the local news saying. That's not the Mike like I know. What is it about him that I don't? He seems like he seems like so not like an athlete. Like I feel like you. You'd think of these ex-professional athletes and in a they want to still be. And I don't know that many I feel like I just seeing interviews. They look like they still expect and want you to think there that still that athletes and their Mike Tyson. It seems like no part of him. Identifies with being a boxer or an athlete. He just seems like This this person and he has kind of a fun affect about him. It's like it's like he makes no sense to me. He comes off nerdy and nice and sweet and he's got. He's kind of sensitive while at the same time being very insensitive. He doesn't notice Shit But like he'll he'll say he says thank you to the people in the gentlest way. He'll take a picture with anyone he he he's he seems like I don't know he had a transformation. How yeah how? How does that square with his general perception with his history? I know you know it's like if you if you walk around with him like the few times have been. Oh one time we were in a New York comic con and it seemed like a fight almost happened with the guys from What has been the Boondocks is the guy the Guy Michael Jai White? Yeah he's like a big fighting guy right. I'm not sure I think he is. I think he's like a Whatever you call it Martin mixed martial loss and he's an actor and and crucially? He seems to have portrayed Mike Tyson and the Mike Tyson unauthorized story that aired on like ABC ladies throw walking down a hallway. The Mike Tyson crew and the boondocks career whatever's walking the other fucking way and it was Li- it it seemed like the sharks and the jets. Except who cares about the rest of the fucking cartoon nerds on either team. It's just this one big guy and then Mike Tyson Jason and then it got so weird and the Guy Tommy Davidson the comedian on Boondocks. He seemed to try to defuse. I use it. He did the COMEDIANS role. He was like you know. Let's make it funny. Let's take down the temperature. And then he was traveling and that did not work at all and I feel like at one point. He was Mike. Tyson sort of gently moved him to the side and it was like a chest to chest yet and then my wife Rachel at the time is like oh she was wanting to it was like we gotta get the Fuck Outta here. We're all going to be beaten to a pulp and tornado like that. This is about to get and then like somehow Mike. I don't know what happened. You could barely hear them. He was I think he was angry that that this guy had portrayed them in a bad light yeah and then I think this guy I was like tough to didn't want to back down probably wasn't this guy's fall so as I just one of those things so what happened kind of nothing. It was a lot of heart's racing. Yeah you know you thought that maybe this was going to be. That could be a snap of our show is going to end here in the right in the moment. Wow now and that was before it aired. And you've moved on moved on down the hall. Yeah wow you went on down the hall. How has the perception of the show Benefa- people been responsive Syrup You know it's funny. It's like all adult swim shows. I'm old enough that I don't know any person that barely even knows what adult swim is. So you know what it's like a younger audience so young people. I'm sure love it. I don't mix with any of those people so I don't know mix solo now. I'm our age and older. Do Young people know Mike Tyson. I don't I don't I think if anything they just think he's like a character on a show now I don't think any of them know about the show. Yeah they they probably get confused. George Foreman I don't think there's any real you know censor who was just a A character yeah. He's a toothless lion. That's what he called himself. He was like. Oh we're trying to get a vendor Holyfield for one thing And of Andrew Holyfield was like holding out for a million dollars or something because he felt like to do a voice he should be paid like a boxing match. And then it was like Alexandra and then Mike was Mike. Tyson was actually being very funny. But he's he's like I told the Vander Vander. We're all lions man. We don't get our teeth anymore. We we gotta just do we got to just live our lives man and then then Mike is like laughing. He's like oh these old boxers they always want a lot of money and then we just the deal. He'll never happen so we didn't write a thing with the manner holyfield which was just as well because no one in the audience gives shit about of Holyfield. How about norm norms? The funniest person. I think he's the funniest person on earth. I thought that when I was you know younger norm MacDonald. How did he come into the show he just you know weirdly the Peter had worked with Peter Girardi had worked with Some of the people norm nixes with particularly the guy who played saul and solve the Moolman. Josh Gardner Josh Gardner. Who I though? Because he's the first cousin of another ground guy of my era nat faxon and Nat faxon and Jim rash or writing partners. They they like Oscar winners. They re they won an Oscar for the descendants. But they're they're both very sketch comedy kind of guys and Jim rash at that point had become also the dean on community and then was on our show. But Josh Gardner whose Nats First Cousin was norms opener on many tours for stand up so there was this connection to josh to norm through Josh that Peter when he called and we offered him the role of pigeon I think he was receptive that he otherwise might not have been because of that. Little Bit of familiarity with Peter a little bit a shorthand and then he came in and my God. He did the funniest thing the first first time nor did not want to do his normal voice on the show so he came in and he did a thing. That was making me laugh so hard because but but that's a problem if you think someone's so funny everything you do you think is they. Do you think it's fine. But he was basically doing his impression of Sterling Hayden The Guy in the general in Dr Strangelove so norm is doesn't sound like norm for the first like three pages of the script and Peter Girardi the the executive at Warner Brothers gets this Ashen look on his face like we've hired norm MacDonald to be nor McDonnell. No one's GonNa you know what this fucking thing is. It's like an impression of a guy from nineteen sixty but I was laughing so hard because it was so funny and then it was my job to tell me that we didn't want that and it was terrible. I was so like embarrassed. Oh my God. Even more norm brought his mother to the record. A norm has got to be so. The mother is like a grandmother type aged person. She's a little old lady very sweet. She's in the voice booth. He comes in. I'm like Oh my God. This is MacDonald this is going to be so great. He begins reading the first bit of dialogue. And he's doing it in a voice that doesn't sound anything like norm McDonald. Why why was that choice? Made you think his own creative uzes and you know what's funny is it's like he was right. It was very funny. Do you think he didn't WANNA be nor McDonald's routes will probably I think he like I think he's got like a and I get it because then it's like McDonald's and he writes his own material whatever. He's in charge of his career if he sounds like Norma Donald and he makes a joke and I've written the joke in the joke sucks. It's embarrassing for norm MacDonald. Everyone's like McDonald's does not funny anymore cartoon but he's going to do in a funny voice that no one will recognize right preserves. I'm telling you laughed. Hired at this performance of his because it was something it was is also correct. It was a great choice do you haven't I bet we. We must unless they unless like all things they pressed a race. I don't know But it was like but also I to get the audience wouldn't have gotten so you are learning this of this decision in real time studio with Norman his mom. Yes and Peters who saying okay. Let's see what we did one script and Peter. Let's take a break and then I just said I said I blame the network and I said is this all right Peter if we just say and then I said I kept saying they and I'm like they want you to be norm. They really do. And how did that. Go over He. He seemed he seemed like the person who's like. I've heard this same line. Fuck it. I'll the DUMB corporation is wrong. But I'll do it whatever..

"Petroleum p played a dinosaur. People want to know Howie Tower. Works like how how to stop the stop. Motion part is actually so fantastic. It's a it's like candy to me DO I. So get it It's appeal because there's something magical about watching these stupid dolls And I even I've written a sketch for star Star Wars and it was about the Wamba. Yeah and it was like Glueck pulls into a gas station and his swing fighter. I decided they gas stations and then like the womp there and the is like he's having a shitty life ever since his arms cut off and like he he parks on the wrong side of the thing. The gas tank is on the run A- and then he drives around to the other side and then he drops his keys and he has trouble with the gas. 'cause he has one arm it's also hard. Life is so hard and Luke's is just watching it. It and he feels so bad about what happened. And that that Chris McKay directed that one I think. Are you a star wars fan. I like star wars or peer pressure. Star here is there and and certainly know what the fuck you're talking about. You know the names of all the little animals and shit. No I was going through empire strikes back but even the third one I was like they seem so stupid. Though e walks I was like oh you lost the plot I love the I two though. But then there's like six more now. There's all these other fucking these other things you have to pretend to to like star wars. No I I think what ended up happening. Thank God is there was no hiding my ignorance. They the robot chicken guys have decided to think. It's funny that I don't know stuff and so now it's at least are on the table and they just laugh so now it's like I'm the old the old man who doesn't know it. He doesn't know any references now. The old man on the staff Jesus like there so they don't work at all. None of it works. I don't and have any John Bolton's very proud. That did come back in I did. He didn't occupy space in the public sphere later on in life. But you know I'm always either way ahead of my time in a useless way or it's something they just don't they don't get there. They're like what is this what we have have no reason for this so you started on the show. Yeah at the beginning of the show. Yes and then you were there for how long I breath well. It was unclear to me how they really worked. I think I was in the early days to me. I was like a robot. Chicken regular writer. In point of fact I think they hired lots the people in between I would work for like six weeks a year and then another year would pass and get it back invited back to robot chicken and do another six weeks so you get invited in. Do you feel like you'd have to prepare Get yourself up to date with not really because I found. I found a technique that works for me. What was that the man Seth in their desperation to to fill the shows goes with the garbage? They put the shows. They would have a dry erase board and on this address for the be all these stupid titles of of movies pop culture crap and toys that they loved so I could sit there and look at the list look it up go straight to wikipedia find out what it was and like if actually there's a sort of interesting story so how long were you there before you bailed on chicken. I think I would always due robot chicken. I did the Star Wars specials. I did the DC specials I did a Batmans in DC on the DC special. The song is called sailing. I just thought it was funny because green lantern who like if they go into space greenland would always have to do is ring for Batman and the and the people that couldn't travel in space and it looks so embarrassing. Like their the way they got to the bat interstellar battle embarrassing and I thought that so my idea for the the sketch was Batman. Talk to him about a different vehicle. Could he choose a different vehicle than just this. Fear the green sphere and he chose a sailboat. And then I kinda. I tried to write a rocky song that was about sailing and he just relaxed mood. So you didn't really bail you. Just do it whenever I can whenever you could something yes. And then what came next stumbled onto Meiteis so then after this is all before saul no Saul Saul is after robot chicken maybe the first or second writing job Robusta Cycle they call them here for like six weeks. Then I wrote on Sol then. I acted on salt when we shot and I played one of the people suit in the outfits. Listen I was in one of those outfits for about three hours. It's something else I was. It was terrible I was in it the whole time but I was like I was having in such a fun time and I really thought it was like could potentially be something then. We would get the scripts. I kinda thought like I think we we blew it but scripts erupts. Yeah there's too much there's too much too much story that no one cared about too much plot that you had to kind of follow and then you weren't really following like he didn't stay simple enough. I think I think you've got to to fucking crazy collapsed on. It's all. Yeah I think so but I had such a fun time acting. It was very fun and then did you play. I played a budget. I played Bertram. Who was like a guy in a moment so I was in that big with the fake? Oh by the way at this point in time I believe in Hollywood proper Hollywood. They have things called fat suits Well our production did not. We had a thing called a beanbag chair which was like taped to me to create fat. So yeah it was like worse though. It's a low budget fads. It really was and then then I played a guy named the senior Baltimore which was just like a Mustache Guy I don't remember what he was about. And then I I played Thomas Jefferson and then supposedly Mike Laszlo liked that and I came back to me. I heard that that the that the adult swim brass which you might have been apart. They were like that's the show. That's the show. Yeah the Thomas Jefferson so then I thought Oh my God. I'm finally being recognized. I'm going to be the star of the spin up and I thought this will work so well and then that proceeded to be just like a car wreck young. A young person's guide to history watched. I watched a little bit of one because I had to put together a real for something acting real three years ago ago and I watched a little bit of it and I've found parts of it amusing But not the whole it seemed like a way worse version and drunk history history. It's I think it's like two people wanted to do a thing about history and one person did it in a funny way and we did it in unfunny. Well you know that You play the role of Thomas is Jefferson completely inspired Amilton yeah PROB-. Yeah no he's he's been on the record the lin-manuel wow. He saw that show and he was like it. There is a there's a I have an idea. There's a spark here. They've just missed it. They're just missed it but there's something here. It's like that van Dan. That didn't that didn't know whether there's a band that recorded the song so much like stairway to heaven and they're mad but it's like you missed it. We could sue them. Yeah that's new lin-manuel around that was young person's guide to history. I remember started out as a longer series of episodes. They got condensed down to two. Yes one would say almost punitively distilled punitively. I wish you could read my scripts from that area though. I think you'd like them a lot of Interesting people in those episodes. Yeah Yeah We'll we'll character a bit because I knew all those groundings people and Michaela Watkins Kahlo is in it. Patterson on richest gemstones now she was in it correct bridesmaids with Kristen. Wig was in it Who Else Larry was hilarious and gone on anything? Anything famous for the Great Larry Door. Yeah he did but he did the thing where they dressed as a woman in the talk show for you guys. Oh yeah terrible or a funny It was it had some funny parts to it. It was it was Peculiar yeah it was Addition for that yeah and I went in with two other. People felt like one of those additions like commercial. Auditions are like this. And it's like you know. Just weird people off the street. You're in a room with suddenly you're going to improvise with them and you can just tell they are so desperate to talk that you a normal human will just give up and just sink inside themselves which I did I just I gave up. They were They had some hot takes fighting to express them. Yes yeah ask Yuppie broads that's good people on it. Yeah Yeah Tommy Blocher earthquake. Didn't Tommy do something on young one person's guide. Did he play. Something needed one thing to pop through that. So Seth Green been on south. Yeah did he wipe the bugger. Duggar on the curtain. Now maybe I feel like that. Maybe now's at that show is fraught with peril. But you know what came out of that also was Dave Dave Willis Did a young persons are for. Yeah yeah so it was a real incubator. uh-huh yeah a lot of the lot of great great ideas. They just didn't get they didn't coalesce not for young head of time and a good title young person's guide to history. We didn't do much with it though. Yeah we set the network back a bit there so I think yeah I saw that one away I feel I feel a little responsible and what happened. Then after that we got Peter Girardi looking as wounds took a job as a chastened he took a job at Warner Brothers animation where he works as a as a executive. Yeah then Peter Hired me to come in and do a brainstorming session about what to do with looney tunes and it was like me and Steve Little and some of those little crew. Steve was in young persons And we we said the only thought right I really had at the time was well. I've written all these sketches for both robot chicken and groundlings. I'm sitting on a treasure trove of written material. Not No not at all but I thought we could. We should do. The looney tunes is pitch it as the version of the muppet show. So it's like a sketch show and then make like the the muppet whatever the fuck. They're called the looney tunes. Do the same thing like kermit used to do like bugs can put on a hat and be news manners. Whatever I don't know what the idea and then and so? We started down that road. They loved it. We started down that road who loved it The CNN Peter. I think Warner Brothers. uh-huh yeah but then crucially someone higher are up at Warner Brothers swooped in Peter off and he was like this is not the bugs bunny I know and he was all we had to start over but then the great thing about it was. We ended up writing a Sitcom basically with bugs and daffy living in a house together it was very like the odd couple and it was very very very fun to write. Kristen wig played Lola. Bunny Fred Arniston played speedy Gonzales. We got some of some are funny friends to be on it. Did you feel responsibility instability. Messing around with bugs bunny now. I didn't give share. Because it's like they. They had already done but people already ruined it. That's what they always say they're like they're like these are the crown on jewels. But guess what does the Crown Jewels. They have parking signs in their parking garages. We'd like bugs bunny wearing a hard hat pointing in saying sorry. Farrah Dust Doc. It's like they've already fucking ruined him. The poor bastard is being ruined every day so there we weren't going to ruin their the great cartoons enes exists go there is no solemnity no no so you so that was fun. We wrote two seasons of a half hour Sitcom and really basically it was called the looney tunes show unmemorable title but It basically was a great writing Testing ground because like you now if you right in the real world of comedy live action. You're not gonNA write so many scripts you're GonNa be on the staff you're gonNA write like me one a season you're punching up. You're sitting in a room all day for this. We got to write fifty episodes by ourselves. And it's I that's it was huge. The amount of volume that we he wrote the episodes. Yeah Yeah it was to Caesar as technically fifty two but for some reason we quit before because because maybe Mike Tyson had come along and they wanted us on that. And Warner Brothers is like we're done with the looney tunes show. The kids don't like it and the kids couldn't they would. They would never like it. Made Him cry. We wrote it was such an adult show. We just had bugs daffy sitting in coffee shops but like we wrote it to amuse ourselves sadly But it was still a great experience and then I could have done better if it had a laugh. Track needed to tell the kids what was funny. The kids can't figure that around other kids. Yeah so it's like when they watch Disney live action nightmares. Those those horrible things they they have the fake laugh thing going all the time time. Yeah it's like they need to beat into another otherwise I think daffy duck is mean. They didn't know they could laugh at him. Here's me it's true. Here's need five real life. Heroes Meet Five. all-star adults watch brand new episodes of be real every Monday starting November eighteen only reporter You're sitting there at Warner brothers.

"This is the adults and podcast. I'm Matt Harrigan I'm at stupid buddy studios in Burbank. California home of robot chicken. We've been talking to the cast and crew all the people who make the show today writer. Hugh David he's written for a lot of crazy shows isn't it. Tell us all about it. I think being with Mike Tyson sets a different tone being with Mike Laszlo roof potent figure what are the what are the similarities their idiosyncratic. Oh yeah kind of signature people. Yeah you Kinda. I think they're one you kind of want to think they're one thing and then there's going to be something that is confusing an element that doesn't square with other parts arts and then you're like what and then you're just confused. What was your first Running with Mike Tyson her end. I'm shocked you earn this. Yes it was. When we CA- someone you didn't go you? You didn't go to that thing. The thing where we shot at his house no go to. Somebody went could that have been Walter. Maybe it was wall. Yeah That's when we got. This is the first time we get there five in the morning. Shoot in the morning. We're cartoon that's barely a cartoon that was then wanting to live action and of course we're incompetent at it and then we arrive there with. I've written massive monologues for Mike Tyson. Like like soliloquies. Not having any idea he he's not gonna be able to do these and we get there. It's one hundred and five degrees at five fifteen in the morning. It's dark and it's one hundred five degrees and this is in Las Vegas Las Vegas. It is home. We're going to shoot exterior. We're GONNA shoot him. Outside wearing sweatsuits is the plan and having a bunch of stuff that will book in the show. The show is supposed to only only have live. Action wraparound yes. kind of like a car not fat Albert Albert and everyone just assumed Mike Tyson can do this so we get there. The wife answers the door and five in the morning when he very angry. Are you nervous about ring. My Tyson's five in the morning. Yes because it just looks like a fucking housewife. And why why are you there at five and why is that. They're not someone opening the door and meeting us like nothing approaching a house and she answers the door. She's very very angry with Mike who she says has last night betrayed her trust and he was in the club's doing Lord knows what and she's very very very upset and that was the beginning of the day it was that's five. Am We shot all day. That was also. He was sweating so much. And then I watch at this local makeup artist. Take Men's Mitchum antiperspirant deodorant and rub it on his forehead and then we said action like like different sweating. She used underarm deodorant. I met you think in two thousand eight when we were shooting young person's guide to history. Maybe just before that when you're doing and saw the moment yeah all the good old days. Yeah that was the best Saul Saul was the best because I felt like I was just a writer on on that I was just a writer I had done. I had ironically auditioned for the role of saw like a year before uh-huh and I believed I had gotten the part Craig. The the the Creator told me flat out of his. He's like you're it and then it said it had to go to network for approval. Well well then I didn't get it 'cause I guess. Lhasa thought I was not the character. Like they wanted to be like like a like a Schmo guys like a a dope. Josh gu-guy but wasn't cutting I'm not a cool guy kind of a cool. I'm a crazy and then like so it's frustrating and then I then I was on the writing. Staff and Josh Gardner was him and I love Josh. Makes me laugh. Josh's crazy and the writing of that was the funniest thing thing in the world. It was like that and to me reminded me of like the same experience. When you're doing something in it's crazy and underfunded which you guys must have the whole of the beginning of adult swim from what I've read was guys experience? Yeah craziest senior funded. Yeah but it was cool. It was like it seemed you at least thought this is cool and and fun to do. You're here in this building Stephen Buddies because you're you're first writing job was on robot chicken. Yes they brought you back for the special chill that they're writing now. Yes and tell us how you got involved with robot chicken. Seth had been in those Mike. I Myers Moves The spy often Austin powers movies and the Frau Bisa is the actress. Mindy Sterling Rolling Mindy was like teacher growlings and was in the main company when I first started growling. groundlings Improv growlings Improv local. La Theater and she. Evidently Seth was putting together the against the writing staff and she said Oh I think groundlings people would I guess. She said they'd be good for this. It's sketch and they do sketch. And so he came to see a show. An improv show and I was in it coincidentally Eddie Izzard in that show but the show is very funny property izard and then Seth came up to me afterwards and he was like. Oh I would you come in and interview and I was. I was very excited. I did at the time. Think going to be an actor. I had no thought of being a writer weirdly. But as a improv person you write for yourself yes and even at growlings as you write your own sketches. So you're like you are grooming yourself at the worst to be a sketch writer. But I came into. I had a packet of sketches and gave them and then I remember very vividly. Doug Goldstein has one of the head writers at the time now still is i. Guess I don't know where he is his official title. Doug he's very blunt and you'd say impolitic but he said after eating one of my sketches. This is not funny at all. which seemed unnecessary? Could've you could've said it's very funny. Bert were not hiring and maybe worse he said it's not funny at all and then they hired me it made no sense mixed message. Yes but I very sketchy it was one of the sketches identity groundlings and I would. It would do great every weekend. It was about John Ironically. Klay even though there's like twenty years ago it was about John Bolton who is currently the but is he the National Security Advisor Twenty years ago. You're reading John Bolton's John Bolton because he was in the UN he was appointed to the UN bye. Bye Bush Bush. The son wasn't niche. Yes comedy but no one new who he was but he had he had these hilarious quotes he said he wanted to bomb the UN. He was very funny. Seem to me. It seemed like a funny guy. He's in the big now. It's not it's not anymore. People think so. You wrote a John. Bolton Sketch Goldstein said. It was terrible. Yes they hired me and then I read like a dream weird. And then I struggled I with the shortness of sketches brevity. That they were going for your. You're at long I I'm a dully paste fellow and I think even like groundlings people think I go too slow so I let alone on a show that prides itself on these ten seconds things It was a it seemed like a bad match but but I think I I was different and they found a way to make make Mike Sketches would get in I think they 'cause they're a little dylan. The different side and I don't know shit about pop culture. I'm older crucially older than Matt. And Seth and and my touchstones and memories are not quite there as I was like I feel like none of toys. They were into none of the the movies really were. We're I just been a little bit too old. So you're writing long long winded on winded unfunny catches about obscure political figures. Yeah I knew nothing about the references that they were right. I should've been a robot chicken failure but for some reason I'm I'm I I don't know what the hell it is. What do you think it was? I don't know I think I think I think I make Tom Laugh. And and Tom Helps meet figure out how to get my sketches to work on the show. Do you remember your first sketch that got in. Yeah it was like a it was a song and that's another thing I don't sing at all but for some reason I've written like four songs on robot chicken but The song it was it was about that. Legend Urban Legend in New York. Where like if a person falls and gets trapped between the subway subway and the subway platform and then their body is like somehow mushed and then they're alive fully exit create some fantasy Turner Kit and they're perfectly take time but if they pull the train away instant death so then I had my stay there and he he he? He lives out the rest of his long life breath and the he had a long happy life but but also my added thing was he didn't like his job so either though he should've had a different attitude not assume disconnected from the transformers. Yes yes yes I kind of thing and the worst part is all those songs that I've written for them because at some point had to email them. IPHONES are so you know dastardly there in my tunes so occasionally in my car if I plus shuffle I can hear my own stupid voice singing a song on robot chicken. Wow every once in a while like one and three hundred and no songs made it onto the show. They did that. One did head and.

The Saturday Night Live over the weekend could not go on without addressing what happened in the previous week. He was on as the guest. And after the show is over that whole rant. He did. I didn't know was after the show was over, he kind of kept the studio audience and the cast of that show hostage on stage while he went through that twenty minute pro-trump speech that he did, and they sort of had to address it and they did during the weekend update segment, they brought out Pete Davidson and I'm not a big Pete Davidson fan. I find him often, especially when he's cast in a sketch just bringing anything is even on the show. Sometimes they'll show up just on weekend update and talk about the fact that he's got his bipolar and stuff and everything. And I guess there's value in that, but it doesn't seem like there's much comic value with not much contribution to the show, but I did stay up late and watch the show this weekend and imagine my surprise when Pete Davidson was the funniest thing on the entire show really because he was the guy they chose to talk about Kanye west and what happened. And he said, very comically the beginning of his speech that it was between him and Michael j. because Michael was black. He said, but I'm crazy. And we know we know who's behind the wheel of Conde right now. It's the crazy part of cognac. So he went into a very funny segment about Connie west and what he said on stage there and how he thinks they should handle this moving forward. So here's just a little taste of Pete Davidson from Saturday Night, Live. I know you're like, no, this is the real me. I'm off the meds..

All I want to welcome you to the show. Great to be your Stacey. Thank you. So ali. How did you get started an animal welfare and getting involved with community cats? You know, it's it was pretty organic for my whole life. I've been I was raised with animals when I was a kid. My grandma had dogs for cats apparent and my goal every time I spent the night or house was to have them all sleep with me in the same bed. Not the parent, of course, with the many of the other animals possible. So I've had this I guess love of animals my whole life. And as I got older, I started walking dogs in my early twenties. And just just the idea of caring for other animals than got me thinking what else what else could I do within the ama- Walter field. And I found a job at a local animal shelter to. Work in the clinic pilling animals giving them fluids. And then from there just kind of worked my way up through the ranks of animal welfare in found myself as like you mentioned, the director programs operations digital marketing and through my time in working with animals animal welfare.
