The Soviet Spies' Depths of Evil With David Adams Cleveland

"I'm talking to David Adams Cleveland at the author of a brand new book novel gods of deception and David, you were just making a point and we had to cut you off. Please forgive me and go back to that point. Just to give you some idea about the depths of evil that were perpetrated by the Soviet spies in the American government, besides Alger Hiss, Alger Hiss, by the way, on the way back from yalta, stopped in Moscow for one day with elements of the American delegation. And in a secret ceremony he was taken aside by the head of Soviet intelligence and given the order of the red star for his contributions to Soviet intelligence. That's just for beginners. But here's something even more astonishing that Americans need to know about the level, the depth of evil. That was going on at this time. There was a Soviet spy at the upper echelons of the Treasury Department by the name of Harry Dexter white. Well, in 1941, the summer of 1941, Harry Dexter white was approached by his Soviet handler. Victor pavlov was his name, same name as the guy that had the salivating dog. Victor pavlov. And he wanted to meet with Harry Dexter white at old app, it's grill in Washington, D.C., right off the Treasury Department. And Pablo says I'm going to meet you there. I'm going to have a copy of The New Yorker with me. You'll recognize me. They'd never met before. They sit down. They have lunch. And pavlov pushes a piece of paper across the table to Harry Dexter white and he says, I want you to read this and put it to memory. And white picks up the paper and reads it and nods and says, yes, I understand. What that was on that piece of paper was what the Soviets called operation snow. It was a plan to, for the U.S. to ratchet up the pressure on Japan. In summer of 1941, that is embargoes on oil and raw materials, where the idea of pressuring the Japanese so that instead of invading north in the Siberia where they'd been fighting with the Soviets for a number of years, that Japan would be forced to go south.

"Which came out over a decade before he started working on the show, which has the same title as the show, and which has the same historical characters as the show, swear engine, Bullock, soul star, and so on, though represented very differently as the show. They can say it's all historical and so it's just a coincidence, but they'd have a hard time explaining the way Charlie utter is so prominent in their show because in the history of the west before I wrote about him, he was just a dot. I turned him into a major character of my book and then they made Charlie exactly the same way I did only they gave him an English accent so that you wouldn't know they'd stolen it. When the series came out, nobody would do anything. I got hold of a lawyer to find out how much it would cost to sue them. It was astronomical, and I'm not interested in that. And then I get calls once in a while from newspapers wanting to know about the language and the interviewer says what the profanity and the TV series this is the killer. Yes, as Pete Dexter, people made a really big deal out of the fact they had cursed a lot. Now look, the reason they had put mofo in there every other word was because it worked on The Sopranos. But if you said that shit back in the 1870s in the Dakota Jerry, you get shot in the head for it. He's like, in other words, the distinguishing trait of the TV show that we all love. Dexter same, but you couldn't do that in, you know, I'm a journalist I'm true to my source and my source suggests you would never get away with that. And milch's defense, by the way, is also very good. Let's hear it. Which is that, you know, putting in there's nothing that dates quicker than swearing. And to carry the emotional charge that you needed for the language, you had to use swear words, cuss words, which were contemporary. So that anachronism is sort of baked into the series. And it's one of the things that is most memorable about the series, particularly, particularly swarming. Suddenly love joy is appears in the middle of the middle of the west and is the most foul mouthed perverted difficult I mean it's just brilliant, brilliant bit of casting. I have no idea if American listeners will be familiar with love story, but it's probably not a fair trade to be honest with you. That I read this whole book. You remember that episode of The Simpsons where they go on a road trip to the ruins of the world's fair and at one point they go to see Andy Williams in concert. And there's a tracking shot across the front row of Bart looking incredibly bored and Nelson enraptured. I read this whole novel looking like Nelson. I enjoyed it. Me too. So much. Me too. I've read other books this year, which I've also got a great deal from, but I think of the books we've covered this year John. I don't know how you feel. I just, I wanted to live in that book forever. I was really sorry when it came to an end. Grim and grizzly, though it could be. Oh, what was your name in the states? Was it Thompson no Thompson or pace? Did you murder your wife and fly for your life say what was your name in the states?.

"At the same time, at the same time, these are historical characters. And I would say that many of them are extremely different in the book than they are in the show. Notably Al swearengen. So I think the television series is extraordinary. I think it is very distinct from this book and it has its own life and its very much own rhythms of writing. Both of these works are extremely textural, but I do believe they have very different linguistic textures. There is there is one I can not believe, and if you look at the Ellen Barkin, portrayal of calamity Jane, I can not believe that the calamity chain character, which is very similar, the alcoholism, the kind of the rankness and the physical rankness that obsession with curing people just feels I mean, I went back and looked at the historical background to that whoever wrote that calamity Jane character in the TV show. I had must have read the novel, because I just can't believe that you could get to those two things like you say like Leibniz and it doesn't feel possible. I was kind of dismayed when I read the novel because John and I both absolutely love we talked on this problem as we love it. We love the TV show, right? And initially I was quite dismayed and but I thought, well, you know, Erika, you're right, there is kind of a whole Rococo elements to the TV show, particularly in the character elsewhere engine, and some of the extraordinary speeches that he's given and listeners had to learn overnight. Which is one of my favorite Deadwood facts and was always on the money. But I thought it would be fair to hear from Pete what Pete Dexter thinks about this. This is an interview that he gave to vice in 2009. And the interviewer says, did anyone from HBO ever contact you or try to get you involved in that show? And Dexter says no, and I mean they obviously stole at least the first scene from the book. The guy who took credit was the producer, some guy named and the interviewer says, David milch milk, yeah. And you know there are pieces of value in The New Yorker and stuff. His tape was that he wanted to do a western forever. He had everything available about that area at that time, and yet had somehow missed my novel..

"But what it did do though was for a long, long time after that 15 years, nothing tasted the same to me. I started I'd like to see food all of a sudden, but alcohol had a very bitter taste all of a sudden like almost like battery acid. And it really couldn't drink anymore. And it's not much fun to go into bars if you can't drink. So with 8 ten extra hours a day, as I was saying, you know, started to write a book. And in that sense, it did. It got things going. Erica, don't you think that's like a scene from Deadwood? Yes, it is. Yes it is. We have to choose whether we believe it entirely, of course. But it's set up just like one of these scenes. You know, he brings us into the event and lets the event unfold for us. Rather than just telling us what happened. And like any great raconteur, that line about it ruined the evening. That is great. I've been reading his newspaper columns written around the time that that he suffered this beating, and they are brilliant. They're collected in a book called paper trails. And they are filled, they're shocking. Some of them are so Frank he talks about his wife and his marriage in ways that I can't believe a tabloid newspaper in Philadelphia published in the 1980s. And he's got this eye for, you know, he's not writing about the mayoral race. He's writing about a funny thing that happened on the corner and finding the human piece of it. And there are a couple of jokes along the way and then he'll land on the profound lesson of what it means to be human. But this is the genius of the newspaper columnist to be able to do that in, you know, 600 words on a two day deadline. There's a continuity between Dexter's pizza's journalistic career and thinking, well, what if I applied some of those techniques to people who's about whom we have a lot of information and just take it up a step, you know? Bill actually talks about this very early in the novel. He has a short bit of dialog. I wish there was a general reluctance to bring my name into things, he said. The trouble is accuracy. You can't explain what you did to anybody, especially a reporter because things don't come out the same in words, and the words you give them, they get it wrong. I tremble to think what the writers do after a body dies. Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's so good. Well, we've held off from talking about Deadwood the TV show and there's a couple of reasons for that. But let's remind ourselves..

"All the women in this novel are really extraordinary. And the interactions between them are extraordinary. And the way that they relate to the male characters to build. And I think there's a section I wanted to read, which is actually an interaction between Agnes. Who has this marriage? You know, we never see the marriage of Agnes league. And while Bill Hickok, except in these letters that are written back and forth. But we never see them together. And there is a sense that this isn't unreal relationship. That's certainly Bill was wanting something that he had an idea of marriage that he could never be suited to. And of course, kalima, Jane, Martha Jane cannery. Is in this novel in love with Bill. And sees herself as a sort of rival to Agnes, who we only meet after Bill. Is dead. And there's this remarkable encounter between the two of them that I thought was one of the loveliest things. In this book, have you got it for us? I do, I do a brilliant. So yes, Bill is dead. And Agnes has arrived. And calamity Jane has already had an argument with Charlie. Claiming that she was married to Bill. And Charlie has been trying to keep her out of the way of Agnes. So she doesn't say this to Agnes. But as Pete Dexter said, you know, the stone thrown into the pond. This is going to happen. There was a movement in the circle of guests then. Jane started pointing the weapon at a dozen different people. And then Agnes Lake stepped out of the circle. She stood half a head taller than Jane. Twice as strong, wise as the Bible. Her dress was a red color and her face was smooth and calm. Well, well, Jane said. She lowered the pistol halfway to her side and stared at Agnes. Charlie saw the chance to take it away, but he stood where he was. I heard you claimed you as the wife of Wild Bill Hickok, Jane said, Agnes didn't move or answer. She looked as if she were trying to decide what this was in front of her. Jane looked around the room as if she had just noticed where she was. I better get some answers, she said to the guests not to Agnes, Bill never told me about nobody else, Jane straightened herself. She spoke, trying to match Agnes Lake's height. She put her bottle back in her pocket and pulled the brim of her hat down until it bent the tops of her ears. She brushed at some of the weeds sticking to her coat. Then she considered Agnes Lake again, who still hadn't moved. Jane took a step backward. And someone laughed out loud. She pointed her gun in the direction of the sound, but without an intention to shoot..

"Later there was an eyewitness story in Harper's weekly of how Bill had wiped out all ten of the mccandless gang, and after that everything he did got immortalized. If he pork, he shot the pig at high noon in the street. If he at pork, he shot the pig at high noon in the street. That's what I mean. There's a string of shots of single syllables going off there, but also like you said Sean, what a lovely joke to land right in the middle of that paragraph. I am a pentameter that last bit. He shot the pickup hygiene in the street. But you're right, he's always doing that. And I mean, again, without straying ahead into what we're going to talk about Erica, the dialog does a lot of work in this novel, doesn't it? So much character and rhythm, both those things are being pushed forward with dialog. Yeah, and you learn a lot about the characters through their action and through their dialog. Because they're not by and large introspective characters. That's the correct way. For them to do it, that's right. Depict themselves. So that's a kind of naturalism in this book is that people are going to say what they think. And you're going to have to work out whether they really mean it in the circumstance. But there's wonderful passages of dialog in this book. Yeah, it's one of the really terrific things about it. That's such an interesting point Erica. Charlie is introspective. Charlie's. He's the only really introspective character. And it's worth reminding ourselves how young the characters in this book are. We tend to think of them or I do anyway as kind of grizzled characters, but Wild Bill is 39. And Charlie is 37, which I have to say seems to me now very young. But there's a description of Charlie who had lived 37 years, most of them unworried and natural. You know, so he's presented as this quite plain thinking, plain spoken character, but he is the one you're right, who's doing the thinking. I don't want to spoil the reveal on which character is, but there's a female character where one chapter ends with the line. She was 19. Which is eye popping in context. That thing about Charlie's inner light. I mean, he is definitely the kind of the emotional heart of the book isn't the pulse that what I love about it is if you were expecting the sort of mythologizing tropes of the west, how many men he killed how many how quickly he doesn't indulge any it's a love what you said on it's one of the most intimate westerns I have ever read. It really is all taking place in rooms and in small in small spaces. I'm going to read the blurb off the back of the book in a minute. Before I do that, this is just a little clip of Pete Dexter talking to Scott Simon..

"I just devoured it. And we just want to say upfront here and now. Dead with the novel is not the same thing as Deadwood the TV show. We are going to talk about the TV show later in the podcast, but we very much want to concentrate on the book first and foremost. And so Erica, did you read this before? I had and yet I will briefly mention the TV show because I first found this book after watching the original series. So that was the original three seasons. So that was some years ago now. I read it in the mid 2000s. That was when I first encountered it. So this is a reread for me, but like Sean, I'm interested in the pulp slash literary western, I'll also I agree about Peter Carey, John and I were talking about a wonderful book called the collected works of Billy the Kid by Michael on doxy that I think people who think they know Michael on Archie might not expect this book from him, a true grit by Charles portis. So I've always been interested in this territory. I think it's very interesting that this book was published in the UK, but it came out it came out 7 years after the U.S. edition as a paperback original. I'd never heard of it until I knew we were going to be reading it for that list. Did you come across it? You know, I don't think I had. Which is odd because I'd read Paris trout and brotherly love back in the day and really enjoyed there was a launch party in a gym for brotherly love in West London boxing. So boxing book. And I like boxing books. And then I sort of lost track of Pete Dexter. He's written a couple of books since, but the one that everybody talked about because it won the national book award was Paris trout. Okay, so let me go to you first Erica then. What does Deadwood by Pete Dexter have?.

"Dexter. He wasn't just killing random people. He was killing criminals. Dexter morgan went after other serial killers pedophile 's a variety of dirtbags who You know hurting people and Evading or had evaded the law people who if caught would not get the punishment he felt he deserved. He was all about being a vigilante. Not again just about killing random people Twitchell and the rest of you just conveniently skipped over that part a why mark twitchell go after hardened criminals probably because he knew kick is fucking. Have you tried to kill them. Not a tough man. He didn't have the size strength. The technical fighting skill to do that instead he went after lonely physically unimportant unimposing men who were looking for women to date online back in two thousand eight when internet safety was not talked about as much as it would be later. Mark also chose men responding to hook up messages. Because he thought he could put divert police attention away from himself by making. It seem like his victims. Were still alive by posting messages on their social media accounts and writing emails from their accounts and then he would quickly learn. Wasn't that easy and he would get arrested just a week after the first martyr. Then there's actually video online of the detective You know who helped arrest him. Driving around to try and search for johnny's body before they found it to give closure to the family thanking him for making his job so incredibly easy for catching him. Basically saying he was the easiest catch he'd ever had a history of his career. Because this guy was such fucking idiot She a short time after they You know catch mark. The police searches computer computer. And they find a document titled s. k. Confessions which detailed. Not only the murderer and the dismemberment and disposal of the body but previous attempted murder that the police had no idea about just gave it great details you just wrote essentially journal entries detailing exactly what he did s. k. stood for serial killer Which was what marked which wanted to be but would never become my god. He was hopeful when he was named in that document s k. Confession starts like this. This guy's such a douche. This story is based on true events. The names and events were altered slightly to protect the guilty. This is the story of my progression into becoming a serial killer like anyone just starting now in a new skill. I had a bit of trial and error in the beginning of my misadventures. Allow me to start from the beginning. And i think you'll see what i mean. I don't remember the exact place. In time it was that i decided to become a serial killer but i remember sensation. That hit me when i committed to that decision. It was a rush of pure euphoria. I felt lighter less stressed. If you will at the freedom of the prospect there was something about urgently exploring my dark side. That greatly appealed to me. And i'm such a methodical planner thinker. I uh smart. The very challenge itself was enticing to behold he is not a methodical planner thinker. You will soon see that. Holy shit he also wrote. I knew i was different somehow from the rest of humanity right so special i feel. Such emotions is empathy or sympathy toward others. For example is right about that. He goes on to talk about how he You know never talked about his dark fantasies with therapists before and then he goes on a tangent about how he's not the one choosing the victim's fate brings them to him..

"All dexter deadpans lot of commentary via voice over narration viewers in the head of a serial killer possibly helping them relate to them or to him. It's at semi related. That makes the show dexter work and also made it fairly controversial when it came out most viewers myself for sure included. Seem to like dexter and we wanted to see him succeed and not be caught despite him being a serial killer. This is literally what the show intended to do. Make you root for someone. You feel uncomfortable rooting for fun. Creative challenge for the show creators and they were not the first to do it right. There's another famous anti heroes like scarface. Is tony montagna. Tony montana fight club's tyler durden. The girl with the dragon. Tattoos lisbeth sounder. Unfortunately with shows like this every once in a while some fucking lunatic like mark twitchell watches it and things. They really get the anti hero and they want to become them. They forget that it's a fantasy. They can't seem to like the overwhelming majority of the rest of us just have a good old fashioned escapist vicarious fantasy enjoy the show have fantasies of who you would kill if you were dexter which you are not and then you move on with your life unfortunate for the show creators.

Timothy Dexter: Was He Brilliant, Lucky, or Bonkers?

"Timothy. Dexter started his life with very humble beginnings he was born into the town of maldon in the massachusetts bay colony. In seventeen forty seven. He didn't receive much of an education growing up when he was eight years old. He dropped out of school to work on a farm at the age of sixteen. He became an apprentice to a. Tanner was a fine trade to be in back in the day. But nothing that would make you significantly wealthy when he finished his apprenticeship. He was given a set of clothes. By the tanner who he worked for. It was called a freedom suit. He sold his freedom suit for eight dollars and twenty cents and use that money to relocate to newburyport massachusetts. This was where his good luck started. While in newburyport he met the woman he would marry. Elizabeth frosting ham. Elizabeth was a widow ten years older than dexter. She had four children in a very nice house in He set up shop aching gloves and selling other leather goods. As well as reselling blubber from whalers by the end of the revolutionary war. He had saved up several thousand dollars which was quite a bit of money back then so far. His story is nothing special. You as a middle aged man living in newburyport who had to find business but it was at this point that he began he string of insanely successful yet at face. Incredibly stupid investments. The first investment was in continental dollars during the revolutionary war. The continental congress issued the first american currency and it quickly became worthless. The phrase not worth a continental came from this currency almost. No one accepted the currency by the end of the war. Yet many people especially poor people were paid in this currency and could do nothing with it. After the war many of the wealthy citizens in newburyport began buying continentals mostly as a charity gesture. Dexter however wanted to earn the respect of the local elite who never quite respected him and went all in he purchased the worthless currency just to give people something in return any purchase the currency for less than a penny to the dollar later when the federal government was formed they agreed to purchase all of the outstanding continental dollars at one percent of face value.

He is a gentleman one to shorter now. I can't imagine one of our listeners. Not have following this entire journey. But will you tell us what kind of dog. Dexterous dexter is a terrier dachshund mix. I got him four months ago after my friend christine nangle. Who's a very funny person on twitter and a writer on the simpsons. She posted a dog that she was looking for a temporary foster home for not dexter but a different dog right and so i took that dog in for literally a day which was probably the right move because the dog was very anxious in kind of annoying. Fortunately wasn't a great fit. The dog was super cute. Sure and so did that and then the very next day. She sent me a next door ad for dexter for a free adoption. A woman named vanessa gotta to move in with her mother because of the pandemic and the mother's building did not allow for dogs so she was looking to in canada's only pulling away from the mic because he was getting too many kisses in and out a little bit but but yeah and then she was moving to new york city for grad school. Anyway so she was always planning on an and she. It was a rehoming for her for from another friend of hers. That also couldn't take care of the dog because moving. So i'm his third and final home in less than four years. Wow amazing and arrived with a named dexter cain with the name. Dexter honestly would not have named him. Dexter what would you have named him. you know. i was thinking about jackson main stars born. He's watching over us every day from heaven behind in my bedroom thinking about like all sorts of he's like springsteen adjacent thing like i thought clarence might be a sweet little dog name. Sure By he came with the name. he's already three years old. And so we decided to stick with it It's also the name of one of my sister sister's dogs. She's to golden doodles named dexter and cooper But that was also part of like shit. I name dexter like two dogs in the extended family with the name. Dexter too basic. I don't know. I ended up keeping and i'm happy i did because i do. I do think it's a very cute. And i think it's better for hand-me-downs right if something's personalized wants one. Dexter wears it out the other one. Yeah but it is. It is unfortunately. When i tell people 'cause like i would say sixty percent of the time people say like oh geneva dexter after the mass murderer on tv show inside. I may my dog after a killer on like a very violent television. I didn't you after the low laverick guy. Yeah thank you sunday. Comic exactly the sunday comic. Was i believe there's an i think it's the same dexter. I think dexter last lab from cartoon network will alexis is where you come in to look it up. Is there a comic with the name. Dexter and i would like if we refer to alexis as alexa alexa. Was there a dexter comic. We speak to her without much. I feel like it was a lot of vaccine jokes in the ninety. S this track. Does this seem right. And you're talking about a different thing. Dilbert are you thinking. You've del up. Yeah where are you going to name him. Dilbert is super far right. Super maga- now and i grew up reading dilbert and watching the tv show. That association is also. Yeah that's only only fair now. Will you walk through the. Hey i'm just fostering him. I'm just posturing. I've done it before. I'm not sure if this is my dog to tick dog. Well it was. It was a different our process because she was like putting it up for adoption. Wasn't even like a foster situation. Take him now and so we did. I contacted her via next door. It's like the only good thing that's ever happened on next door. And we met up in a park and had like a thirty minute date which this was in the middle of march so everyone was messed up and she was actually vaccine at the time because she had a pre existing condition but it was a mass in trying to get a lay the land for his personality which was a little distracted as they often are outdoors and but he seemed very sweet and she said things like oh he likes you but then she told me about all these other people that she was going to meet who might also be potential candidates for ownership so i was like well. It's not gonna be me quite the bachelor. He was definitely looking for love and given out the roses your los angeles county and she told me about these other two women. She's like one of them. Used to be principal. One of them's a high school science teacher. I'm like oh we're going to be more qualified or whatever so totally put out. My mind wasn't a week later. She called me. And i didn't save her number and so i thought it was spam so i answered the phone from an unmarked number like hello no bedside manner to speak of. And she was just like. Hey you know. My mom. And i were talking. We think you index fit together and so we want to do it and it was truly not a call. I was expecting all. I thought she was going to say like. Hey you know. Obviously we decide to go in a different direction. Something i was just like oh and it was like it was one of the only like phone calls. I can ever remember where it's like. Oh my life is about to change the yeah. I'm like a phone call. So after that she was real easy about it and she said oh you can do a trial can to make sure everything is vibrating. Okay and make sure like. He's the kind of dog and personality that you would want in a dog. And so i said oh yeah. That sounds great. Let's do that so she said yeah. Pick him up on friday. And then i'll pick them up from you and sunday and we'll do that in so we did that and it was pretty clear. After the first night that is going to be a good fit. One of my best friends chelsea came over and madame started crying immediately off a. She said she knew already and she started crying as far as that stuff goes in. So yeah did that. And then In this trial weakened by the way was the day it started the day after. I got my first dose of the vaccine. So definitely marks time for me as like that in that the end of that part of the pandemic has the pandemic will last for the rest of our lives as you found out with recent news but that in the end of that part of the pandemic of remember like you know she's experiencing different kinds of life with dexter by my side which is very sweet the sweetest. I was the proud recipient of just a few texts that weekend and just like oh. Yeah there were. You did not have a no granny. That was not nestled up to one in the arm in the back of the knees i think ankle at one point just if there was if there was a crook..

How Jenny Lorenzo Became the Internets Favorite Cuban Abuela

"Jenny. I'm almost have to admit not accustomed to seeing you as jenny. nobody else. Is that what you look like. I want to take a listen to the first video that you ever did. Hold up today. Go to pick up one three gilead of better sex for three going on meeting me gomez day metal supplement. Okay iressa on. And off for the love of god. So here's what's interesting. It's the first video that willa was ever featured in for buzzfeed but she insisted prior channel of mine called aggressive comex and a boiler was first introduced as a superhero Because this was a channel that was predominantly white male audience. I talked about video games and comic books and movies. Sifi strictly me being nerd and then at some point i did a movie review of the film kick ass and me and my writing partner for the show was to the cuban well because he knew that i kind of already did that sort of thing and so it was the same terrible wig that you do see in that buzzfeed video i think i through like baby powder on it to make gray and she had like this painted red mask over her eyes with like a fly swatter as were weapon and then eventually it made no sense for the channel. But you can tell that. I yearned to make this sort of content. It is interesting that something that is as big as a bulla takes that many iterations to get there like. I think there's a lesson in there for any creative. That is not necessarily that. The opening gambit is where you land now never being a nerd is as much a part of your identity and culture as being cuban. It seems did you see characters on tv or in media. Who has a latino nerd you identified with not really wasn't until recently that i started seeing that representation especially in a show like no spooky because these are a bunch of latino gods that are into the macab and they're a bunch of nerds and outsiders because that's a big part of me to what most approximated your own experience i would say. A lot of that was in black television. You see urkel you see. Carlton banks a lot of these like nerdy people of color on tv. Maybe sometimes says from that seventies show me. He had like a bit of a nerdy flair to him. I feel like latinos on tina's specifically were usually depicted as like very sensual loud colorful. You know things sofia vergara in modern family that was the typical depiction of what was and. So that's why. I had a hard time in the audition room. I didn't fit any mold of what especially miami casting paint a picture for me of what auditioning in miami looked like. It was a nightmare for me. I would show up and for those who don't know me. I'm like five feet pasty skinny little shits and he but then i have this like deep voice. No one knows what to do with me. So then i shopped to these auditions and they were usually little late sorta lottery or like colgate but then i would be up against women my age but they looked like supermodels and then there was me so then i just never felt like. I was sexy in us to sell toothpaste. I remember my very very first universal casting audition. It was for the florida lottery. And i had to be like this sexy. You're even an award. These like plastic clear stripper heels. I don't know. I don't know what i was thinking but i was nineteen years old. The silver lining of this terrible experience is that emotive issue to become a creator. I was tired of this. I was so tired. And then i did a couple extra work. Gigs was extra on. Burn notice and dexter. And guess what. I was scantily clad and tacky his hell because that's what they thought of people in miami. All of these shows always depicted people from miami in the same way and it always took place in south beaten always involve drugs and sex and violence. Which is another reason why. I'm working so hard today. To eventually sollers show. That depicts miami in a more authentic way so yeah it pushed me to go to school and learn how to do everything else on my own.

The Right Tools

"Prior to installation of the robotic tool stowage unit nassau's robotic external leak locator was stored inside the international space station. The tool is an important unit. Used to help astronauts identify dangerous ammonia leaks in the space station's cooling system but deploying the robotic nose was a complicated process that was dependent on the availability of an airlock involved waiting an additional twelve hours to allow the gas analyzer to clear itself of internal gases and required astronauts to travel outside the station. The newly installed robot hotel is now the leak locators home and the leak. Location process is much more streamlined. As long as dexter. The canadian space agencies robotic arm is available. Dexter can use the tool to detect ammonia leaks eliminating the need for astronauts to perform the same task during the spacewalk. Meanwhile the external storage unit provides a warm protected place for critical tools like the leak locator to be stored until they are needed again for innovation now. I'm jennifer poet.

How Aimee Garcia Took Charge of Her Hollywood Career

"Amy thanks for doing this. Thank you for helping me. I want to start with Scrappy heart Productions because while I am sure that we have some listeners in our midst who are aspiring actors says I'm going to guess that more are trying to figure out how to go from worker to owner from performer to Creator. So take me back to the moment where you decided that you wanted to have your own production company. It kind of happened organically with glow so they asked my writing partner and I who's also bodiqua. She's Puerto Rican and wrote A New York Times bestseller called crazy is my superpower. We were talking. We love superheroes and we love comics and we never saw ourselves represented and they asked us to write glow the comic based on the Netflix series wage. And that was the first time that we thought let's highlight the Mexican character in there that we felt could have been more mature dived into during the series. What if we pitched that relationship between Yolanda's character and the Muslim character and we pitched it to Netflix and they loved it off and they got their own covers on the comics. And that was the first time I thought oh my goodness. This is so cool that I was able to with my writing partner highlight a Mexican carrier. And have her be the center of the story even though she's a peripheral character on the show. So I have been following your writing partner and now your production company. Mendez for years because she and I both grew up in Union City, New Jersey and so years ago when she was in the WWE. My mom was like my mom's always on the lookout for Union City kids. So she was like a Union City kid in the WWE and it's like oh and she's Latina like this is amazing. We're so you guys were writing Partners before you were producing Partners, correct? We were writing Partners, we wrote Globe which we love doing and then we started writing Dungeons and Dragons and she's like, hey, I found this article on this badass female viking who had a hero's burial and we were like, let's highlight her and she had like this huge scar on her face. And then we did this Disney writers program and they said you should start a production company because you guys have so many ideas and you guys run off. Dammit with comedy and drama and T and you guys should create your original material and then we were like, yeah, we we should do that and then the kicker was really the, Khan's that is when our fans I would go around for Lucifer and she would go around for WWE and they'd ask us what's next like what are you doing? Next? We love your character and we thought well, let's check them an answer. Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it. I think this was all the love in my life, which is I am genuinely surprised that it took that long for you to realize that you wanted and needed a production company. I know, you know what it is. I've been really lucky as an actor. I recorded Modoc while I was shooting Lucifer and I filmed El Chicano while I was shooting Lucifer and I've always worked as an actor. I've had a bunch of failed pilots and I've had success with Dexter and shows that were supposed to be big and only lasts a year like rush hour and Trauma and I just throw myself all in and I think I didn't have the bandwidth to think outside of that kind of singular horse race track. I wish I would have done this sooner. I write 8 hours a day. I just dedicated myself for the past three years to writing every day. I have off and any time I finish a take I'll just run to my computer and right. So what was the first thing you did once you in a j decided that you wanted to start a production company content content is King whether it's you getting the rights to an article or writing it yourself off. Of or putting together a pitch for an existing IP like a j did with crazy as my superpower IP is everything and if you can have original Ip, that's the most important thing. So I really think putting pen-to-paper is the first step whether it's an article a book a script. I mean a g and I both wrote Our Own scripts and then with my show I was looking for a showrunner to help me write this pilot for a family Latino comedy that I want to write. I just ended writing it myself life. That's why we call the scrappy heart cuz we when we got the job for glow we didn't even know how to write a comic book. We literally YouTube how to write a comic book and like DIY like we're total DIY.

Let's say we're creating our own characters and making these peripheral diverse characters the centers of their own stories. And then we just did it. I think this was all the love in my life, which is I am genuinely surprised that it took that long for you to realize that you wanted and needed a production company. I know, you know what it is. I've been really lucky as an actor. I recorded Modoc while I was shooting Lucifer and I filmed El Chicano while I was shooting Lucifer and I've always worked as an actor. I've had a bunch of failed pilots and I've had success with Dexter and shows that were supposed to be big and only lasts a year like rush hour and Trauma and I just throw myself all in and I think I didn't have the bandwidth to think outside of that kind of singular horse race track. I wish I would have done this sooner. I write 8 hours a day. I just dedicated myself for the past three years to writing every day. I have off and any time I finish a take I'll just run to my computer and right.

Trump’s medical team says he could be discharged from Walter Reed as soon as Monday

"Could be headed back to the White House as soon as Monday that from the president's medical team who held a briefing today, here's a clip from that Dr Sean Connolly, speaking in front of Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Over the course of his illness. The president has experienced two episodes, Transit drops his oxygen saturation, and and there there was was much much more more information information from from today's today's briefing, briefing, particularly particularly compared compared to to yesterday's. yesterday's. Let's Let's welcome welcome NPR NPR science science correspondent correspondent Richard Richard Harris. Harris. Good Good Morning, Morning, Richard Richard and Dr Carlos del Rio, an epidemiologist at Emory University. Hello, do you Are you? Well, Richard, I'm going to start with you. But let's hear first. Ah clip from Dr Brian Garbled E. On the treatments the president has received. We continue to plan to use a five day course of Rome disappear. In response to transient low oxygen levels as Dr Conley has discussed. We did initiate Dexter methadone therapy, and he received his first dose of that yesterday. And our plan is to continue that for the time being All right, Richard, What does that tell you? Well, that tells me that the president was at fifth had very least serious course of disease, and he's getting sort of the top line treatment to address it. The decks the method zone is a steroid. Drug that helps tap down inflammation, which can be a really bad sign in somebody who's immune system may be starting to overreact to the virus. So doctors have come to realize that this is actually capable of saving lives in people. This is the only drug that has actually been demonstrated to do that with Corona virus, and so they've given it to him that will really help stabilize his immune system. That's the hope and of course, the room disappear is a drug that is designed to stop the virus from mass producing itself inside the body. The FDA is authorised its use, but specifically people who are really sick enough that they need help breathing. It has now become evident that the The president's had a couple of episodes where his oxygen levels were dropping. And and at least one instance where they gave him supplemental Oxygen. So s so it looks as though he's you know, getting pretty aggressive treatment for his for his condition, which seems appropriate And surprising to me is how quickly they expect that he may actually be able to go home. Maybe as soon as tomorrow. Well, Dr Del Rio. Let's talk about that. We heard in the clip in the introduction. The doctors they're talking about the president's oxygen levels. As we know with covert 19. It does affect the lungs and oxygen. Saturation is a real big indicator about how well you're doing. So, what did you hear there? Well, you know, I heard several things that hurt that. He he was there when you need to put things together. He's initially diagnosed. He's got mild of these, like, you know, 84% of people of covert have smiled. But they made the decision to give them the one of the two call antibodies Regeneron one and that's currently being studied in people with mild disease. We don't need to be in the article. Then his options saturation crops, and the decision is to transfer into the hospital because once your oxygen saturation cross below 94%, even if it's transitory. You're immediately in the category of no longer mild or moderate, but in the category of being released and its investigations that boat from disappear and Memphis on has proven to be effective. And that's exactly what the president has received was given disappeared. He conceded that the medicine and that's where he currently is right now, Dr Florio. This's important so I'm going to put this to you all along. They had been describing The president's symptoms as mild. You seem to be suggesting that the moment his oxygen levels dropped and he was given supplemental oxygen and then put on these experimental treatments. You could no longer categorize him what he was experiencing as mild symptoms. That is correct. Correct at that point in time, the president no longer having me having mild disease. That's how he's having severe disease, and he's put in a different category. And you know, that explains why Mark Meadows was concerned as express complains why he was actually he told us you know the president. We were very concerned. You know exactly that. I think he's telling you, he was telling the truth. But then I guess the question is your your doctor. Why wouldn't the presidents of the president's doctors have explained it in the same way? I mean, we heard today. Dr Conley say that he wanted to give an upbeat assessment. But that seems at odds with perhaps what the truth may have been. That is correct. I mean, I don't want to to say you know, but I was quite frankly, very disappointed by the press briefing yesterday. I think the press briefing yesterday. What spent he was speaking like a spin doctor. He wasn't speaking like a medical doctor. And you know the job of a loss in medicine when you're doing something like this, especially when somebody who is as important as president is to is to speak the truth and to be transparent, and I think, you know, Unfortunately, we are an administration were transparency and truth has not been at the forefront of this of this response. And we're seeing even in this case when the president of the patient
