"To ask you and not even i. I was going to say what do you think the wrap dress represents to amend. But i'm sure you actually know the answer. Because i'm sure a lot of people have told you why that was so huge in the fashion world. But you know when i first started with this little dress. People didn't take me seriously on the designer. Say what is he still dress and and they're ride. What is this is just a little piece address but for me i became a designer is i always put the woman i for me is the woman that matters not fashion and the fashion is what you put around yourself and then there's something about my dresses in particularly that address is that you put it on you tight around your your body and you feel something happens and therefore if you feel good then you are confidence then you are beautiful. That's what i always felt. The designers worked for me. Dvd's is the friend in the closet is the best brand the most reliable friend in the closet that is high like to be identified and one day. I remember somebody. I don't remember who but somebody said that. The rub dress is the dress. You get the guy in and his mother doesn't mind her so it's sexy now to get the guy but nods vulgar so his mother agrees it. I love that me too It's iconic there's museum exhibits in the met. It's so amazing that fashion. Because i do think sometimes it gets washed away. Fashion is like a female thing like a girly thing or not important and i can have incredible emotional significance. What is fashion. Fashion is a reflection of the time right. Fashion is also in food in houses in architecture. Fashion isn't everything you know. But this particularly dress. I created in seventy four so it's almost fifty years old and people still buying. It's never happen to address to have that long of life. I know and that just goes to show you're right. It's not about the fashion element about how women feel. You're dressing them from the inside out.

"Think her time with them and her life story which was made famous girls in the midst ultimately made people want to come and see them and do the incredible experience. I'm sure that you had and that has been such a key. Part of their conservation is the fact that people really fell in love with them and wanted to come in to eco-tourism which really helps support conservation in the region but definitely she went there as a scientist and soon after she got there she saw what was happening to these animals. They were being poached. People wanted their hands as ashtrays. They would take their heads and these to her were family members. I mean diane made no bones about the fact that she liked animals more than she liked people and so you can imagine. She's off in the forest and when her favorite gorilla digit was killed. They removed his hands. They removed his head and the body was brought to her and she says i lived inside of myself from that moment on and her methods daycare more radical. A lot of people were telling her diane. You can't do this. You're endangering yourself or you're endangering the guerrillas but i think what's important is the movement that she started that carries on till this day. I mean she thought mountain gorillas will be extinct in the wild by the year two thousand and instead they're the only on the planet that is increasing in size. It's an incredible conservation story and she started. Certainly it's been carried on by many others. since then. and the governments of these countries live have invested a ton. And conserving them. But i think without that work that she started we may not have mountain gorillas you're totally right in parallels so many of the historical figures who have come under a little more scrutiny as time has wore on and yet it's like you gotta take in the whole pitcher. Yeah maybe she got twelve killed and then also maybe there's none without her so yeah as life tends to be very complicated. It must be a complicated feeling about the fact that tourism is. What's saving them like. Is anyone who loves the animals much as you do. Even as much as i love them. I wish they could just live in the forest and not have to see humans for an hour a day. Like i guess that'd be my fantasy. But then i'm a realist. A pragmatist. so i recognize. Well that's gonna save them then. So what are your personal feelings on that. Exactly i mean i would love it if wildlife could just be left to its own. They don't need us. They just need us to get out of their way but unfortunately for so much of wildlife. That's not the case. Million species are at risk of extinction and tourism to see the gorillas has been incredible not just for their conservation. But i can speak best or wanda where we work..
Interview With Yusef Salaam and Ethan Herisse
"Now if you experienced at all there seems to be consensus around this like i want to say michelle. Obama even wrote about it in her book. What a black students who are in route to a medical degree get strongly encouraged by counselors and advisors to not do it. Have you heard of this phenomenon has happened to you. I have not heard this. And i also i haven't experienced it either. No one's discouraged me on that. I'm wondering if that's before they get to college. Possibly if students are like exploring the possibilities of what to go into when you said that the immediate thought that came to mind was what malcolm x. was discouraged to become as a child when they asked them. Hey what do you want to be and when you think about systemic racism oppression that stuff. A lot of it has nothing to do with physical fighting but has everything to do with what happens mentally to get you to accept whatever definition. They are trying to put upon you. What did he originally wanna be. I don't remember exactly. But i think it might have been a lawyer or something like that knowing it would have been a good lawyer. But it's one of those things where you say you. So damn you know when i went to college after i came home from prison bumped into master teachers. My most impactful teacher was a student of dr john. Henry clarke and i think dr john henry clogged is taught. You know the fact that he was professor maradas hunter college in. He had people under him who were not so talk ahead to go to school to get educated. They're getting their education in addition to what they had under him so with regards to master teachers. What i found was that in educational environments that are breeding ground for success. They have specific things right it. A student to teacher ratio is a balance that you find in a lot of private schools but in public schools. You don't find a lot of people fall through the cracks but with the master teachers. They didn't get the opportunity to look at the child and see the child's gifts that they're exhibiting
Prince Harry and Oprah Winfrey Discuss Mental Health in New Series
"Harry and hot water After describing the first Amendment as bunkers, NBC's Roy O'Neill joins us live with a look at why he said it. The reaction he's getting Seems like the prince is having, you know a little bit of trouble. Kind of adjusting to new life here in the U. S. I think he's guys you've got it all figured out that we're smarter than the rest of us. You know, He's got a new TV series with Oprah that starts on Friday. And what are we talking about? Don't look at all this free publicity he's getting, but yeah, he was on a pap I've cast with the after Dax Shepard talking about mental health and his new TV series with Oprah is about mental health. And he was talking about how your paparazzi were attacking him and surrounding his house when he was staying in Tyler Perry's home with the family, and he, you know a lot of this meaner stuff that put online and shared his quick bait that then profits, these media companies. And that's what he said was bonkers about the First Amendment protecting all this.
How is Prince Harry So 'Normal'?
"It's so crazy to me that we're in this world. Where prince harry's like casually on dax shepard's podcasts. That would never have happened a few years ago and to me that is such a small thing but it's so representative of really there into la life. Into hollywood i don't wanna say into normalcy because none of this is normal but just even the ability to be able to go on a podcast. Which would have never happened interesting. That you say this shift into normalcy. Because that is the thing that always surprises me about prince harry especially with what we've seen of him recently. The interview with oprah the new show us with over coming out about mental. Health carpool karaoke. He did the normalcy of him. Is it just catches me off guard every single time and obviously his life whether it was a royal life or in. La life is not normal by any means. But there's just something about what he's saying and the way he speaks and the references he makes and the things. He's aware of in terms of media and entertainment. It just catches me off guard. Because i don't expect him to be aware of any of those things when you think of prince harry in the lifestyle that he's lived. And what your view of the royals are you. Expect that all of these funny references that he makes talking about joe rogan talking about when he was games courtney new the fresh prince of bel air themes on you expect these things to be things that are just go over his head entirely because he wouldn't be aware of them and so for him to be talking about these things in such a normal way was my biggest takeaway from the whole interview.
Amy Poehler on Opting Out of the 'Beauty Race'
"I don't know that. I've ever had such a bonding feeling. Is listening to you on terry. Gross years ago. Promoting your book and you said you got to a point in high school where i looked in the mirror and i said look. This isn't going to be your thing. I'm not gonna run with these lose because unlike you. I'm like you kinda say i apologize in advance so excited to be doing this right now. I'm such a fan. I kind of feel like a one fan contest. I'm going to do a lot of this both of you. Which is i'm going to be like. I'm like you. But i like to do things. I'm good at so in the beauty race i bury thankfully an early on realize. I'm not gonna win here. I'm not going to get a lot of wins here and so it felt good. Just pretend like. I was self selecting out but also the beauty racist changed. When you're in high school it was one thing and now it's not so you are winning beauty race in many ways. Well i wonder if winning it is like not racing exactly. I think that might be the new way to win it. Yes but you know. Markets his constant boring. Disappointing thing that we just keeping like. I can't believe i'm still being so rough in my own. Mind about my face like this is going to be my face. When are we going to become friends. When is it going to happen. And the answer is no right before you. Die the minute before you
Interview With Robert Livingston
"How you doing. I'm doing good doctor livingston. Are you bummed. That if you google your name you're going to get one of the fathers of the constitution right or one of these early founding fathers taking all the real estate yes yeah this ranch of being named dax. There's just not a bunch out there right now your christian name it is. It is yeah. My mom and dad had read a book in the lead character's name was dax. And let's go for it where you from originally. So i was born in lexington kentucky and that's where i spent most of my time but i've lived in six states in four foreign countries. So do you have a favorite my favorite place to visit his turkey. Eastern bowl is my favorite city in the world really has the oslo balance of chaos and order if you will oh okay good. I need you to drill down on the order. Because when i look at it looks very bright. Very frenetic very exciting. And i'm a little bit like that's seems maybe too chaotic. There's a method to the madness because there are places. I've been that are chaotic. They're just chaos deal with it but turkey just seems chaotic like this. Is it comparable to any other form or european country or is it its own thing and that's why you love it. It's its own thing. But i would say it's most comparable to spain. I don't know if you've been disowned ensuring people go out to eat restaurants. Don't open before nine o'clock in the party starts at one. Am and it goes to eight in the morning and spain has a different rhythm. And i think that's the most similar country to turkey and its mediterranean so similarities in the cuisine fish a lot of oil you know and then a crazy history. One of the most historical places you could visit. And that's what i like about it too. So you just hit the number one criteria for whether i like cities or don't and that is rhythm so i'll be places and i'm like yeah it's beautiful. That's a big tall building. That's got all the accoutrements of a great city. But there's just no rhythm happening here and then conversely you go down to austin texas. They don't have a ton to look at. And i'm like oh i can feel the rhythm all around me exactly now. How did you end up at harvard. Like most things in life. It had something to do with my network. So i was in england at the time because i had accepted a position because again our wanderers case. You can't tell i. Don't mind packing up and going to some exotic place. And i got an offer to take over as head of organizational behavior department at the university of sussex and i had my own center and when i was there at the center i discovered my real passion. I like to say. I transitioned from being a gardener to being a florist. When i was just a straight researcher i had my hands in the dirt. Cultivating blooms if you will. And then. when. I was head of the centre. I interacted with metropolitan police. The nhl the national healthcare service all these organizations to sort of give away my flowers if you will and so. I got into the florist business. Like how do you arrange these flowers into the perfect bouquet to give it to people at weddings. Because what's the point staying in a greenhouse if no one ever sees the beauty of your flowers and so you know when i was in england i discovered the passion of sort of giving away the science and then harvard. You know i was giving a talk. And they said well. You know we're holding company of entrepreneurs will let you come here and do whatever you wanna do if you don't want publish anymore will let you be a practitioner. But an academic at the same time and i was like really because most places aren't set up you know. Harvard makes its own rules. So i sort of took on this position to be an academic practitioner which led to this book that we're going to talk about which is sort of trying to distill. The science synthesize it assembly like a bouquet into something that people can digest and use to make profound sustainable change around racism. So that's like my purpose in life. Now where did you get your doctor. Degree because lexington kentucky and then ending up england emceeing already. You're privy to to dramatically different racial structures. And i wonder where you went to college if you maybe even a third and that somehow helps you on your journey just to have witnessed all this stuff firsthand. I went from coast to coast to coast and into the mid west. So basically i started my undergrad tulane university in. I did a study abroad in spain. Which is how. I came to know. Spain fell in love with spain. And i majored in spanish. That was one of my things. And then i went to. Ucla started at the gulf of mexico. Coast number one went to california. Ucla that was number two. And i was getting a phd in romance language and linguistics. So something completely unrelated. But i was looking at themes of oppression in latin american literature and colonialism. So i always been interested in that. In undergrad i did the thesis on a comparative study of racism in brazil and the united states but long story short i was hiking in joshua tree. And there was a psychology student. Who said you know you're doing really cool research. Did you know you could do this in the real world. And i was like no. There's a field where you can actually study racism and discrimination. She's like yeah you know. Why don't you come in audit a class. And that was the beginning of the end. So i left that program. I got a master's. I was a heroin from impeach d. But decided to start all over again in social psychology. So i started at yale. Struggled from coast to coast to coast and my professor at ucla said. Don't go to yale because i got into princeton yale. He said go to ohio state. That's like the best program in the country in what you're doing and as a phd student or go to programs not schools. And i didn't think. I could live in columbus ohio so i went to yale and then i was like you know what i can't live in new haven connecticut so the professor at ohio state would you guys take me and fortunately i had my own funding because i wanted. Nsf fellowship. so. I was able to export that i went to ohio state and worked with one of the top people in the field maryland brewer. Who's like the godmother of social identity.

Our Company Has Problems
"Back. In two thousand fourteen I laid out the premise of what I was doing. I was trying to start a business while simultaneously telling the story of starting a business in a podcast and it was going to focus on all the little details onto what kinds of shoes I was. GonNa wear to my first ever investor meeting my wife. Nazanin House need didn't like the shoes I'd chosen. They're fine. They're just there'd be a higher chance that he's GonNa give you money if you're not wearing running shoes dining that's through these he's meal issues that I can wear that my feet don't hurt. I ended up wearing those durkee shoes to the pitch was not successful not surprisingly and I kept recording recorded difficult Goshi with my co-founder tense confrontations with my wife other pitches to investors. I thought I was making a six to eight episode mini series but it turned out. I was launching. I showed that would continue for many years and we document all kinds of milestones in the history of this new company that I was making for example recorded the moment I partnered partner with my co founder Matt so the final thing to discuss which we had put on the agenda for last time style up our conversation of where we see this relationship going yeah checking in on a recorded choosing a name for the company Gimblett what sure easy to spell like madmen sexy. I'm okay documented undocumented the moment my wife Nazanin in the beginning worked as a TV producer eventually joined me in Matt to help run GIMBLETT. We're going to work together. Look look at US going a New York living the dream. Yeah Okay it's S. and over time the PODCAST. I'd accidentally started did branched out into new territory. We hired a new host from Gimblett media startup. I'm Lisa Chow any big success requires looking failure in the and Lisa started following other founders launching their own companies to women who rushed a dating APP several friends from college who actually meaning to started the billion dollar streaming company company twitch and most recently she told the story of Eva Moskowitz the controversial founder of Success Academy one of the fastest growing education startups in the world and we continue to follow it what was going on here. Gimblett the growth of our company from our first few employees through our twentieth or fiftieth and eventually our hundredth we documented our attempts to increase diversity diversity to decrease burnout and manage the chaos that inevitably comes with running a fast growing startup and here. I am now five years after that. I started episode dropped to document a bold new chapter and give them a history spotify. I'm a big user. Dave big user no call we are as well this is footage from the CNBC program squawk on the street dip so that aired February sixth twenty one thousand nine hundred the host. Jim Cramer and David Faber are about to welcome guest to the program this morning and this is big special exclusive interview from quite excited about this spotify scope boundaries Daniel Daniel. I've got an issue right right up front broadcast. I understand they are red hot and what we want is agriculture. I didn't think that a music company would do it but I do think that an audio audio company would do it and that's what this is about as an yeah. It's it's really about expanding our mission from just being about music to being about all audio and being being the world's leading audio platform and the thing that they're talking about here. The reason Daniela showed up at squawk on the street to talk to Jim Cramer and David Faber is because of an announcement inch that had just come out that morning spotify was acquiring to podcast companies hundreds of millions of dollars podcasting technology company called anchor at podcasting content company based in Brooklyn called Gimblett in this season of start up the final season and we're going to wrap up the story that we started over five years ago and I can't imagine a better final chapter than the one. We're about to tell you for the next several episodes. We're GONNA share with you. What an acquisition looks like from the inside and the first season I learned that starting a company is a very emotional experience what I didn't know then is that selling one that's pretty emotional and just a quick warning here at the top there is some swearing in this episode through down the left hand side his revenue split out by show or property so that so just the B. B. Through this tape from a meeting in late March of two thousand eighteen almost a full year before spotify's announcement on NBC that they had acquired Gimblett back back during this meeting the idea that a year from now we'll be selling our company is really hard to imagine row forty. One is the prophet line. The voice you hear is Jim Grau our VP of finance he's walking a few of us on the company's leadership team me not seen and Matt through the numbers for the year and the numbers they're not great what burn rate projected burn rate for the air. Yes if you will to burn rate in other words how much more we spending than we were making alter now. Spending more than we made was always part of the plan. That's what most startups do early on and just nine months earlier. We had reached a big round of funding fifteen million dollars. The the plan was to invest a lot of that into making more shows hiring more people. We wanted that big chunk of money to last for a while two and a half years meaning. We wanted to burn about about six million a year but this meaning. Jim is telling us that right now and early two thousand eighteen. It's looking like we're going to burn a lot more than that. So something like probably ten million eleven million million. A month is probably a where we're headed towards. If we don't uh change some things in other words we keep going the way we're going by the end of the year almost that entire investment we just got James. We'll be gone and that's because a lot of the things we assumed would happen. Didn't we assumed audiences would grow but instead they plateaued are launches had not done as well as they had in the past and some of our biggest shows with the largest audiences still weren't making money because we couldn't sell ads on them shows like science versus. The last season was very sold out this. This season is not super sold so what's wins empty spots how threat in terms of how many sponsor consoled a what's the percentage. What's the what's the sell through rates over ten percent fifteen percent ten percents old. That's a little bit. That's counting the next season to probably like twenty twenty to twenty five percents old. Why is it that that it cabinet bed bad because if we can't make money on our biggest shows what does that mean for the rest of the company because the fact is Gimblett specialty specialty up until this point our business model basically had been to make kind of podcast costs a lot of money. I kinda requires big reporting trips large teams of four or five five producers and editors and engineers. The kind of show had a proven track record for example this American Life Cereal Radio Lab. They're all that kind of podcast and that Kinda show for the first couple couple of years Gimblett. It worked for us but at the time of this meeting for years into the company there was another kind of show that was getting more and more popular a kind of show that wasn't what we specialized. Stan shows like pod save America and my favorite murder the DAX shepard podcast these shows rely on a charismatic oast connecting with fans and they're much cheaper it to produce and the audiences for these shows are huge way bigger than the audience for any Gimblett podcast these shows we never mentioned them by name during this this meetings but they lurk behind everywhere the conversation because of what their success seems to suggest for US business that maybe we are spending a lot of money making in something that people don't want anymore to me in particular. That was a scary thought if if it ends up being that we can't make there's no business camel to support like good programming. That fucking sucks yeah. We're in this world that prioritizes like cheap you know cheap mass market and and like we definitely need to start doing that but I like that sucks having to make the different kinds of show that was scary to me that it wasn't as scary to Matt to Matt was scary was me and my resistance to change. It seemed to ignore the basic math that a show made by just a producer and a charismatic host. The comes out frequently finds a big audience that show will be more profitable than anything we were making right then. The thing that keeps me up at night is like we're super fucked if we don't have a much lower cost per episode model of production and right now. We don't have that we we don't know how to do it. There's a large chunk of organization has to reinvent the way it does what it does if we just continue on our current pace. I don't think there are things that are going to improve like I don't don't think all of a sudden audiences have just start growing and like we'll get better but we can make decisions to improve revenue. Yeah yeah absolutely yeah but I don't want Asli. This is a conversation about cost as well as you when when I listened back to this tape now all I hear is everything that is not being said the tension between me and Matt this just sitting beneath the surface tension over the fundamental question of what kinds of shows Gimblett should make and what kinds of shows we shouldn't. This new financial pressure was facing it put that tension front and center are started producers Chris. Mary Molly Mystic Interviewed Matin me separately about this time and how things felt between us. Tell me about your relationship with Alex last spring spring two thousand eighteen. Here's a low point. I guess the Metaphor I wanNA use as like a romantic relationship. Last last spring was the real time where it was like. We've been married for like seven years. We have kids we have a mortgage and and and we are fighting and I don't think we ever said the word divorce.

"Can you get away with it or you're smart enough or fast enough? Do you think it through good enough? Sharon, I wanna her. Nobody is going to say you're not really thinking about all the pain you're causing a do not want to hurt anyone. But I wanna get a big duffel bag full of money. I want to get into the vault, and I want to get out of there, and I want maybe even a little bit of a high speed pursuit on my departure. Share outrun them mean you. Think you can do this without causing any trauma or pain. That's the goal. Now. These things often go sideways, I'll tell you that when I worked somewhere a man can't homeless man came in pretend to pull a gun on us for money. He was robbing us and. It was incredibly traumatic. It was known dot hurt. Yeah. Well, okay. We'll now you're making it sound a little less fun. Sorry. But I am telling you what if when I case the Bank, I do really delivered job of making sure that all the people there feel physically quite confident and brave. I guess why don't you just do it after hours with no one's there? That does also appeal to me, but not nearly as much as the high stakes of all the variables people scattering and running and trying to control this large crowd and all basically heat the scenes from he although they were pretty rough and tumble with their approach. They got in that big firefight with LAPD there in downtown LA. Automatic weapon. Fire. What was crazy is that? Then that almost exact Bank robbery happened in San Fernando Valley before you lived here. There was yes. And there's a couple of documentaries about it. What was so fascinating. When I watched a documentary. These guys were in full body armor there. I think was four of them. They were in a huge standoff with the LAPD. They had much more powerful guns. The LAPD had to go by different guns during the whole thing that wasn't the fascinating part. The fascinating part was these dudes had the foresight. They took betablockers. They robbed the Bank, and I was like, that's brilliant. And if you don't know a beta blockers are they keep your heart rate low, and they keep your thinking Klay at home. What what it was when you're watching? It is exactly like the scene in heat. You think there's no way that could happen in real life. And there did they add at one guy had hit out in a house. He'd gotten away hid in a house. They took that battering ram vehicle and drove through someone's house to get at them town. Thank people got hurt in this scenario. The guys did. Yeah. The most of the guys got shot. Ultimately, I believe oh, I'm innocent people. I don't know if any innocent. Well, police officers got shot, which is tragic and terrible. Terrible driving through someone's house. I'm going to guess that. I hope it hadn't just remodeled. If they drive to your house in you been wanting to remodel. It's like a gift from the gods. Yeah. If you. Remodeled and then they barrel through there and some in vehicle. Rough stinks. It's not good. I fake fart on this program. Do you think that triggers anyone's me so phony a-? In my real do. I don't think. Farting. Do you think? Farting triggers Meese of O'Neill. Kind of your chewing air. Wow. I never thought about think about it. I don't want to think about. Do you? Remember that Saturday Night Live sketch with red arms, and it was basically the breathe easies strips, but for your butt cheeks say for your cheeks, and they had all these dumb diagrams and it pulls your cheeks apart. So that doesn't make a noise. Oh, it was just people like basically passing gas very peacefully. It was making no noise. Oh, happy about it. That's so funny. Your cheeks. Okay. So Todd is from Utah. And the great Salt Lake comes up, and you said, you floated in it. And then we were you were wondering if anyone had drowned in it. Yeah. People have people have died in it. It's hard to say, it's hard to know if they like fell in. And then drowned I think probably something else happened in that they ended up in the water, and then died, that's my guess. But one of the first if not the first recorded drownings in the great Salt Lake happened on Sunday, August fifth eighteen eighty two..

"He liked right. If you land on the thing, you love odds of that sticking around are slim to none who's going to do this for you and ultimate comes down to are you going to be in charge of what a successful life is for your. You're going to be equipped to make those choices or you're gonna give that to somebody else. I have to imagine a generous part of film. It is your own physical health. I think it's would be very hard to be for sure filled when you're battling a lot of different issues. So what role does I happen to have this perverse obsession? I've said on here before if I have a single thing I'd want my kids to leave my house with like this one thing I got to pick that I taught them it would just be to exercise. Religiously. That's it. Like, if I they did nothing else but exercising those endorphins that we need to be happy. The they can get through a shitty job or they can get through this or that. But like you got to feel good. Visit exactly yeah. If you're unhealthy this. And I also think what's interesting to me about this is this push toward fulfilment. Because again, by the way, if our numbers are, right. And this is where the majority of Americans are this is the side. We're going to have as soon as they figure out there an actual majority. Right. So we got to figure out how to make this work. This is what people want. I think it's going to start to challenge some basic things because I'm just about a job right right now. If you get a great job, and it turns out, that's like only forty percent of what was going to make you fulfilled. This is not going to do it. Right. But being healthy. And well is going to be really important. I think it's going to start pushing on things that will cross political boundaries like crazy where capitalism drives a lot of options that I think we're gonna want. But things like universal health care and stuff. Like, this was like people have to have a right to be healthy because they can't even get on a path of a film it, right? Yeah. So I think it's going to be interesting. The way this is gonna shake a lot of stuff up and look as parents, let's make this. Let's make this next generation the ones that are carrying the burden that we've been having to carry where we've been taught to. Paris to everybody in that. These things are going to bring us happiness that never do. Right. Yeah. You don't have to impose that on our kids know, my my my saying here is the only person you should be comparing yourself to his previous version. That's right. You're so it's about self-improvement. That's it. Yeah. If you stay in your lane, focus on yourself. You know, you got a shot. That's right. Well, professor rose Todd whatever you wanna call them..

"It's important to understand that. Right. It's funny in medicine. We don't think is individualism and medicine. No. We think of course, like treat me as me yet. Right. And I think if we can thread that needle we can appreciate the dignity of each person. And then also appreciate the fact that we're connected, and we depend on each other. And we need systems that actually do a good job. Yeah. So the dark horses something that you've labeled some people who have accomplished fulfillment. Yeah. Yeah. So yeah, tell me the definition of dark horse. So you, you know, most people think of dark horses people who are successful that nobody sees coming out of the blue which is technically true. But in this dark orange project that we did where this comes from. We found pretty quickly that they're actually people who prioritize personal fulfillment over more conventional notions of success. And that is what leads them on this kind of individual path and also alternately would allows them to be both happy and successful right in doing that. Well, I you talk to some interesting people, right? Right. And is it awkward for you? Is that something like a journalist would have a ton of experience with doing? Is it awkward as like a professor to actually go be a journalist? Well, so it was interesting. So I was trained in a numbers guy. Right, okay. In terms of the science like this was the first qualitative research would ever done. But I was just endlessly curious about these people that seem to come out of nowhere. Right. And and and I couldn't find any studies or anything about dark, and I'm like, let's just do it. Right. And since had no clue what to expect Mike. Why don't we just talked to them? That's a good starting point like listen. And it turns out you can learn a lot by just listening to people. And so actually, my my colleague was much better than I am and Ogi Oguz. Yeah. He's a commode up fuck in name name. He was only I love it computational neuroscientist by training. So we if you're just like, let's just do this. We wanted to everyday people that didn't have connections or money or let's just learn. It was fun. The total passion problem. How do you even go about finding Matt curate list? We did this. Yeah. That was that was the big challenge to start. Right. You're casting a reality show. Yeah. And so we just said we went to all these like professional societies as far away said, look find us people in your societies who who are accomplished. Right. Like, you would say are good at what they do. But. Have these kind of interesting backgrounds writing? And we thought well, maybe we'll get some people. They just come out of the woodworks negative. Unbelievable. And we try to go as far as the all the disciplines, we could think of jobs that no one we think who'd want to do that. And like and then just start talking to them. So my hypothesis completely wrong. So I'd said like I think what's going to happen is like you're gonna find that people who can be dark horses or people who have a certain personality like a Steve Jobs or Richard Branson. Like, they don't really they don't care if they bucked the system when did they label that there's there's there's like five psychological traits and one of them is like, disagree ability or something imagine they're really high on that. Right. Yeah. That's my assumption. That's what I thought too. I thought that's what it would be like. And then I was like, okay. And I want to learn how they get good at things. Right. But it just turned out. Not to be true. No matter how much we wanted it to after the first couple of dozen you realized their person is we're all over the place and all they had in common. They kept. We wanted to talk to them about. How do you get good at things like whether tips tricks or things like that? All they want to talk about is how they discovered what they care about truly motivates them, and they would talk about fulfillment. And meaning and purpose, and I actually wasn't happy. That's a squishy kind of idea to me. And I was like, no, no, no, this is not good. But then it just keeps. Coming up over and over again. And you're like, okay. But like if this is what they want to talk about..

"But that was a lot of money for us. And they said, look, we don't know if you're going to be on the cut this. But like we can all pull. Together and give you a years worth of tuition. But that's all we have. So you got to figure out how to get good grades. So you can stay there. So for me, it was I gotta make this work because I can't go back. Right. I didn't really know. What forward looked like exactly what I wanted. But I went in super curious about why why did things turn out so poorly for me. So you were interested in your own cycle. And you thought, oh, maybe I could pick up some answers about my radio. This is the honest truth. Like, I gotta solve me. And so I called you was super interesting. You know, I did have a professor at one time that said we have the greatest educational system in the world not because our top universities are so much better. But that we have a system where anyone can enter, and I I was the beneficiary of that like I did terrible high school, and then found my way to community college and went to UCLA like that part. I'm very very grateful about our country for oh, it's it's the at our best. It's opportunity in second chances. Right. Uh-huh. The second chances thing really matters. And I do think where we're going as a country in the future. It's going to be on the back of these schools. Like, we were state in the community colleges and stuff that are going to continue to allow those of us that didn't necessarily do well to begin with to say like we still have something to offer. Yeah. We still contribute yet makes sense given that your background that you found your way to the things you have because you also wrote a book the end of average. So you're just really quick tell us about your first book. So this is kind of part of what I discovered on a personal level. And then I realized there was a whole science behind it, which is that for the last one hundred years or so we've built all of our society around thinking, they're like an average person. Right. So everything from the design of the two imbibers as being the mean, whatever the mean height is the medium way. That's right. So if it's body size. There's like an average and then you go small, medium, large or whatever. But we do that in like mental stuff too. Right. So like, there's an I q. That we're going to take and there's an average and that's supposed to represent something in the DSM. Which to me is a little troubling is very much believe in psychology. And and I believe in psychotropic medication. But I also think it's a little dangerous to establish normal. Absolutely. And then everything's abnormal. That's not that. Yeah. Yeah. And then we ended up really turning normal variation into pathology. Right. So what what you find though in the science, which I think it's so cool. Is there literally is no such thing as an average person. I it seems almost like a bumper sticker. Right. But it's it's actually true. So we spent all this time in science using like if all of us here in this room. Now, we're part of a study, I do brain imaging stuff, it would pull you in put your scanner do some tasks, and then take an average of all of our brains, and publish that result. And we'd be like, hey, we found out something. Now, it turns out since we have access to big data now. Yeah. Turns out it quite often represents nobody embarrassing. And so what's happened in the sciences is that? Now, we don't have to do that. So now, I can actually just look at you. And I can study your patterns, and I can build up something, and I can look at Monica and build up her patterns, and then see where they relate and were they don't and that approach which we call it..

"I get bullied a lot. And like just it was a bad as a terrible experience. I hated school and get my senior year. The was like, look, you gotta leave. Right. You can't graduate. You're not even close. And you're just going off. You just gotta go really. So my parents came and picked me up, and they're like, well, I guess you're done with school. And then. Yeah. So then okay. We'll in my dad's job now. And he's like, let's see what you kind of job. You can get outta high. School diploma. Right. So can you handle a mumps on? That's that's really ended up working about a dozen minimum wage jobs. Shortly thereafter, my girlfriend, she's pregnant. She's still my wife today. Oh hot dog. Yeah. Yeah. Wow. This is great, right? This is a good start. So we ended up with two kids about twenty years old. Oh, my goodness ended up on welfare as hot to get by an e kind of all the rock bottom hits them. My wife's donating blood plasma in the legal. Limit to help us pay the bills, and I have this job that I took because it paid seven dollars an hour instead of five fifty which was I gave 'em to people. Oh, no kidding. That was the worst job. Well, it's yeah. It's it's literally. Yes. So you weren't like at a colonic clinic or so I wish no I drive around to people's houses. Oh my goodness. You were like a mole you're like post mates for animals -posedly. Exactly. I just didn't have the good branding like that. I was I was a nurse assistant. And all that. And they only pay you seven dollars an hour to do that. Right. That's a car. It's a pretty good. I think these are people who couldn't leave their home. But I don't want to be there. They don't really want me doing this to them. And and I was like this cannot be in my life. Right. And that's also just think about the mechanics of this. You're getting an hourly wage, but unfortunately, it doesn't take long to give an enema..

Look at today. Accident the second. But if you're listening for the first time, let me tell you about fill in the blanks. This is a podcast that's totally different than the Dr Phil show in that. I'm not solving problems. This is me talking to interesting people. I think you're gonna find him interesting. It's going to include ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances. And sometimes I'm going to be my own guess to tell you very specific things that you might be interested in knowing. I'm going to interview some couples as well, not just individuals. This is not Dr Phil rerun as a podcast, we tell you. Dax Shepard is a good example. Because this guy is really interesting. He's he's married to Kristen bell, which you may. Or may not know. I mean, great interesting couple both comedic actors both very successful. And I'm here with Laverne cusak. Who is my producer for this? What did you think? Adak? He sells mar n I really enjoyed listening to how you guys connected, you both gear heads you both crashed motorcycles, and you both had alcoholic fathers. I think I both surprised listen, this is a guy that has paid his dues. He started out with the groundlings theatre here in L A, which is the improv where you really get in front of an audience and kinda get your chops. He did punked with Ashton Kutcher. And he's the kind of guy that can pull it off. He did six seasons on NBC smash hit parenthood, everything he. Touches turns to go. His most recent movie was chips you remember this the series chips. The movie is not the series chips. This was very edgy. He's been in the judge when in Rome baby, mama. He's a writer. He's a director. He's a voice over artist. And by the way, he has one of the biggest podcast in all podcast called the armchair expert and this year coming up in just a few weeks. They're launching a new ABC sitcom called bless this mess. I've seen the promos for it. And it's really funny. I don't think he knows how to not be funny. So I had a great time talking to him. So anyway, enough talk about let's talk to him. But I'm gonna do that less than sixty seconds. You probably wouldn't think I do dishes. But I actually do I.

So you guys you guys are TV friends, and yeah, we're real friends. Yeah. We've done worked together. Let's we've been on the screen together on the screen. Yeah. Here we celebrated his birthday here came here on his birthday. We always like to give people gifts here. And we give him we want to specifically to give him a birthday gift, and he has a particular man crush. Yes. That a lot of people have which is pit Brad Pitt.

This really is your birthday is it is it horrible to have a birthday so close to Christmas and New Year's argue, it's the worst birthday in the world. A couple of reasons one. It's traditionally when you go back to school as a kid, right? So it was like happy birthday go to school. Right. And then when you get there, you know, there was a big break.

I can't get more than six people to attend my birthday, and I'm on television. Yeah. You pop they know Kristen will be there. Right. Still can't get to. Yes. That's a plus d you say, Kristen we'll be there. Always I lead with that. Yeah. Say Chris will be attending the birthday of that ship. Like when I went to your birthday party. Yeah.

"Of giving like giving in a pure way. Feel awesome. Right, right. And I've been to the opiate thirty times. Like, I I've been in hundreds of villages that have gotten. I I'm there. Sometimes when I was there with Kristen when clean water shooting out of the ground thousand people holding their, you know, women holding their children are clapping and screaming because a guy like you wrote a check. Like, it's it's like that. That's actually real to me. It's unbelievable. When you open yourself up to that. You actually, the problem is is it's so it's so scary. Because if you knowledge the problem can feel daunting it can feel overwhelming. It's like it's almost easier to just keep a wall around the whole thing. But what about the what about another way to look at that? While he's tell me what if you or the, you know, I mean sounds like Chris and already has this reputation. But what if you were the guy that started at a three and people doing good workout there in foster care with the homeless healthcare HIV? Do you pick the issue? Right. Trafficking day. No that anybody the gets in front of Dax. He's just gonna write them a check like he's that guy. We can't we can't let people know that you don't want know, the wouldn't it be cool to be known as the person that that you're just you're encouraging. Everyone you meet and maybe it's a five hundred dollar check. Maybe it's a dollar. Check your to saying. Hey. Go and do this good work in in this thing that I maybe I don't uniquely care about it. Right. Maybe clean water is not specifically your issue. Right. But that's encouraging. Thank you so much. Thank you for the check. That's thirty people with water. That's real. Oh, what if you were the guy that just like the more? I believe the more you give the more you give the more you give the more you give. I believe that. Yeah. Because also, I mean, if you're someone like me, I have my my core group of fears. There's like four of them that that govern almost all my behavior, all my good behavior and all my terrible behavior, and one of those is fear of financial, insecurity. So it doesn't matter how much money you give me. I have the fear that I will be penniless. So to give it away is scary. But to your point as I've been with Kristen and she forces me to give money away. I find that. It's not going down, ironically. Or counter intuitively. It's going up the seemingly the more. We give away which is very bonkers. But requires a leap buffet. I love that. I believe that's true. Let me let me just to offer. You've heard the word giving back giving back that's in the lexicon of society. I hate the language. I think it's everything that's wrong with giving and the way we approach it. It is it is language that is steeped in debt and shape because you have to. Yes. Giving back as if you Dax Shepard have pillaged and plundered to such extent. You should finally throw some scraps back. Totally agree. Like, oh people. So there's no joy in that. You'll never that will never bring a smile but giving because it's because you can because you could write a thousand dollar check and help them thirty people because it's an opportunity, and it's a blessing and you've been blessed with favor nuclear with health with talent through girls to beautiful girls, a beautiful wife like you're giving because you can and you can improve other peoples lives here at home now with this check, you know, across it..

I was getting fifteen percent of the night. Okay. And those guys they night.

Lindsay Lohan Wants Fans to Do the Lilo After Her Dance Moves Go Viral
"As I'm sure every one of you has seen Lindsay Lohan dancing in Mykonos video. Let me just recap this. So basically, I don't know if it was Lindsay or someone else posts video of Lindsay, truthfully living her life in egos, and she's dancing. She's living it up anyway, busy Phillips and Kellyanne decide to remake the video. It's on Friday night. So they make in their kitchen. They posted video and it was hilarious. Critique in comments on a lot of celebrities coming out like, oh my God, this mazing. So we post it and we kind of made it until challenge like doing the Lindsay Lohan challenge. And what was so shocking to me was that there was this mixed response like half the people are more than half the people loved it thought it was hilarious, and the other half started to really come for busy and Kelly saying that they were bullying, Lindsey, listen, let me tell you. We go through a very vigorous checklist before we post anything to make sure that it's not offensive me in voting, whatever. Not for one second. In my mind that I think of that at all in that light, especially. Knowing busy Phillips who was like the preacher of being like so sweet. So nice. So good. Like her tensions weren't to bullying when they were in the slightest bit malicious. So so that happens, right. They posted in everybody kind of starts talking about it personally. I didn't. I couldn't. I usually try to like, see all the sides that situation. I could not see that was bullying. Then. TMZ comes out and calls it mocking Spencer Pratt than defense, busy busy than comments on it being like guys. Are you kidding? We're literally two moms on a Friday night. Lindsey is invading was having the time of her life. We were just trying to like, do her dance, what it was yet. So then I found my most validation when Lindsay reposted the video herself saying, do the challenge was loving. It was basking in the glory peaking. I'm telling you, I'm telling you she's peaking. So there's Lindsay having the time for life. All these people that were saying that she was upset about it when she posted. I finally was like, there you go guys and you know they're still people like who that's still not going to get through. She only posted it because she wanted to make it look like she wasn't upset even though she like, you know what I mean? But it wasn't. She was happy. I thought she was great dancing truly thought she looked great and was having so much fun. I just that whole thing really frustrated me frustrated me because I felt like it was taking it was like a glass glass, half empty approach, like really looking at it, the negative of a very late hearted fund situation. I agree. I tried to get my thoughts really pissed me off.
