A lot of drivers retired during the pandemic or have decided because of the virus. They're not going to come back. Here's WGN's Megan Dwyer.

"To a point in their life where they look back at something i did. That was like taught them. That was confused and they realize like that was so weird and confused. Because they're free of it. You know what you just said it. Music you have broken the whatever. This particular generational avalanche of negativity. You've stopped at a little bit. You know you can't stop it all the way. We're all going to like. It still will come through as no matter. What but a little bit that. Whatever the fuck that was. You've stopped so now. Your kids are going to not be weighted down with horrible advice and and that means that you've created a potential Potentially wave of positivity your kids potentially will are. Your grandkids will be a little less wounded or like heavy from the stuff that that we got. You got like what world war two is not that far away man like that massive not people always forget about world war one but if you just think about the configuration that is not that far back in the rear view mirror not to mention the all the all the other little wars. That have happened that shit. Our parents went through man was crazy. It was crazy shit. Their parents went through. See we're talking like storming the fucking beach normandy. And shit like watching like your friends get exploded by nazi mortars and then having to come back to the united states with full. Ptsd and not the having any of the sophisticated therapeutic methods that we have. Now you know what. I mean as carlin's got that great bit about it like the names that the way we revise the name for it they used to call it. Shell shocked you can go online and look and see. Cpi shell-shocked i'd like such profound ptsd either like basically catatonic and so those people come back from the war and if they didn't go to the war they probably did. They bury their kids. Probably it. you know what i mean you you regardless and then your kids are getting you know killed in vietnam. Your brother was blown up in vietnam. The point is so suddenly you're exude fucking depression man. You know what i mean. So like all of that produced a a toxic combination of boos de and like In poverty that and that's what we're dealing with like that's the shit we've got an us from our parents A little bit and they had it way worse than us and their parents had it way worse. So that's what that's what we're dealing with. That's fucked up. Your dad said that to you. You know. I think of all the things my crazy shit. My dad said to me as it as a kid. When i didn't know that probab- that your dad's just a person you know what i mean but you think you imagine your dad has some like supernatural grasp on truth more than anybody else and so. Yeah you're you you internalize that and then you end up like with this little amount. Like little ghalem demon thing living in charlotte of you. That's all the shitty advice your parents gave you the and that's what that's fucked up your relationships and your life we we like something my parents every i've fucked up and i've lost my temper twice with my daughter and i i'd like caught myself immediately but it just like you know but i but we do is at least i sit her down and i apologize and tell her look like which no one like. No one ever apologize because my dad would have just apologized for smacking me in the head like it would still suck but it. But it's like i have like my mom would defend it so i'd lived my whole life being like with that in my head of being hit not apologize to not told that what happened was wrong just told like well you know he loves you. That doesn't that doesn't heal it. You get your supposed to love me motherfucker here. My dad like yeah. That's a given but you're not supposed to do is hit me. Well yeah and not defending your dad at all because like it's i was gambling. We shouldn't gamble match. But you know you like that was like another thing. It's still is. some people. Beat their kids and they think they're doing the right thing. And that's i mean like it's startling. When you imagine all the unprocessed shit were dealing with man like you know like this fucking pandemic. Unless i'm watching the news and they're saying you know things are looking better. Only three hundred. Americans are dying day. Only three hundred. Americans are dying a day like a of a plane crash today. Something like that. That's a plane crash today and But even though he just came through this week seem to be coming through it. A lot of people are just like all right. Let's just get back to it. Just keep keep moving here we can get back to. Everything's normal here. you're getting back to it. And they're not acknowledging like their own trauma their own light. How this last year was. And i think that is a very human thing to do. And that's been going on since humans were around and so we have all this unprocessed trauma that gets expressed In like what. We're seeing all over the place now. These mass shootings. You know what i mean. It's like you're seeing all this generational unprocessed war karma appearing in this kind of chaotic terrorism. Just blowing out everywhere because we haven't dealt with it man. I mean i like how. How did your relationship. How was your relationship during the pandemic relationship with kelly got better but also relationship suffered and we have a number of friends who are getting divorced. But we i feel like we grew closer together and we made us on hold as a family better like i think. We all had some mental challenges. Because it's like we were at the time for the bulk of it. We lived in a shitty smaller much smaller. And but also i always been a bit reclusive. And like i'm not a big social. So i like i was like yeah. I don't want anywhere to go. thank you sorry. People die but this ideal well. Your relationship got better. And that's incredible mireles. My marriage went through some real rough patches. And now it's great and we like.

"Last night. I was a little stomach sick overnight. But yeah i i it's i get. I've been upset with myself lately. Because i can't sometimes i'm playing with my daughter and i can't fully give into it and i get bored and i get anxious but i feel guilty about it because i'm like i'm a ninety percent of the time right now. I'm her only played mate. And i have to. She comes to me and it's like do you want to play and it's like sometimes i'm like you know on my phone or she also does this thing where she's very dictatorial about the she's like okay. Now you say this and you do this. And i'm like and that gets kind of it's hard to like play when you're being but yeah no. It was fulfilling a fantasy of hers that she's seen or something or created so i have to accommodate but sometimes it's challenging. Well you gotta like forest is a little dictator man when we get. We got a trampoline. And i'll get on the trampoline. I'm forty seven man like like he's like daddy jump. Daddy jumped now. So i'll start jumping. We'll jump jump. And then i'm like i got it out and he'll be like daddy daddy jump daddy jump. It's like i'll just say that to me. It's like part of playing is like if you get to tell me to jump if we get to pretend that we're chickens or whatever that i can pretend my legs so i'll be like my legs. Don't work anymore. They stopped working for us. But yeah this is something that popped into my head as i was having like a classic parent reaction. You were forced creek playing in a creek throwing rocks in a creek. I'm sitting watching him through oxygen creek. And i'm thinking oh my god if i could only save you from the pain of the world. Oh my god. Time is moving by so quickly. How can i hold on to this sacred moment and oh one day you're going to grow up and you won't remember any of this and then i was in. I realized like jesus. Christ if he he's just playing with rocks. You know what i mean. He's like in a greek throwing rocks. He's like trying to make a damn. He's like interested in like trying to pick up a big rock and drop it in the greek. Meanwhile i'm having some kind of like. I don't know the craziest. Existential nihilistic pendo opinion between nihilism and like woven maybe we'll live forever and having backed in. This kid is playing with fucking water and so. That's when i try to drop back. Just like get out of that level drawback in and start like throwing rocks with him. Because like if i can give him anything it's just being with him and not seemingly being with him while i'm in some kind of modlin interior sort of confrontation with my own mortality. You know my daughter has experienced everything in life already in my head. Because i'm always like oh my god like there's so many things just like but it's like i want her. I think it stems from. I want her to hold on to that element of innocence. And i i don't know if that's even possible but as long as possible a or that or at least the curiosity because man if you lose your curiosity in life and i did for a while i got really stuck in my ways. It's one of the reasons that brought back the podcast. Because i was like little my brain was mushy like i couldn't function is like i couldn't speak as well like i was just having a hard time socializing and i just felt like i allowed my brain so i like picked up a book of poetry and started reading it and then actually the book of poetry was like when found one of the authors in it ended up being one of my first guests. I came back with the podcast like ever. Since i didn't that it's really it just ignited curiosity again. Just you can't stop like that's why people fucking just when people grow old in front of the tv and just eat cocoa puffs that's a direct reference to my grandmother. Really well it was not my literal. Grandpa was the the woman who raised my father but she just her mind went to fucking garbage but she just sat in front of a tv innate. Like yeah children's thieves cereal. Yeah mike you can't fuck and do that. You can't physically or mentally. You gotta keep agile or not. I mean you could decide just to hang it up straight her moshi thoughts were quite comforting in a reality enjoyed. Who the fuck knows at. Like the i know what you mean though in to to me. It's like i. I think there's a fundamental question. Anyone who is deciding to have kids had kids. Hopefully that you'd think ask yourself this before you have kids. Which is is it worth. It is life worth it. Is it worth it here. Like is all the fucking sorrows and all the disappointments and all the heartbreak all the anger and all the confusion and all of our is it worth it is the is the is. The ticket is the price of admission. Is it worth the show. And i think it is and also the other thing for my own like paradigm that.

"Into their room in the morning. And you know you realize they haven't gone to sleep from the night before you know what i mean. There's chips all over the crib. Like where'd you go. He won't say but the other night. I looked out and saw a little tiny helicopter flying away so i think one of his friends has helicopter or something. It's too rich. Do you ever find yourself learning like sometimes. My daughter says profound thanks. I'm like what like my daughter became a role model for me for a while to view of Like because she's so optimistic and enthusiastic about everything. There was a period. Whereas like i i need more of that like i don't know what she's tapped into and and i don't wanna fuck that up for her like because i feel like i was her in a lot of ways when i was a kid in seventy fucked that stuff up for a story. That's a story just did not because that's what we're talking about. That's story that thing you're saying that's that's a story that's one of your stories and like getting familiar with those stories is really fun because the more you start realizing. Oh yeah. that's that's just a story that you you tell yourself that you got fucked up as a kid. I'm not saying. And by the way not advocating ignoring childhood trauma or any of that stuff. I'm just saying it's really interesting to start like looking at the different stories. You tell yourself. Like i tell the story of the angry father i tell the story of the guilty son i tell the story of getting addicted academy i tell the story of you know what i mean. All these stories make up sort of the a map or a of my life and in it's so delightful to do exactly the thing that you know anytime you've been on enough acid if you look at a map and you just realize that's just a bunch of fucking line. Somebody came up with. Somebody decided to name that the land mass. That's not what i mean. That's not california texas. That's this is just any basic stone or take on things but similarly when you look at that map that you've created of your own life and just for a second give yourself a break and just imagine it's totally wrong. It's not real. It's it's not that isn't the case at all. It's just you're just keeping it alive like the reason there's a texas is because everybody in texas agrees there's a fucking texas you know what i mean like. That's why and everyone in the world is just as though yeah texas. It looks like that. It's got that fucking boot. Whatever texts you but like it's not texas that's just something that a bunch of people name texas after they call colonize is the place and it's like before that it was called something else before that it was called something else anyway. The point is that just a story about the fucked up thing. That and yes. I do. Learn from my kids to answer your question. Yeah they're they're definitely role model sometimes. Have you found yourself or have you ever tried to change. Not change. Not try to change. But like i've been working the last couple of years to change the way. I think about my story in the way and the way i address things because i think a lot of times i would address things in life because i was reacting from who i thought i was or who the story was in which was often negative and a sort of self deprecating and sort of put myself down a lot which is not healthy but it was like the way i learned to navigate through things like well. You know kind of a fuck up. And i'm like i don't wanna be that dude like that because even if you take that on his character sometimes which i think we also can be or i have been performed in my life. Where i'm like i'll just put a little fucking joke here and there and be a little in. That's how i get the girl to like me and it's like it's not being real and i'd like i don't wanna be that presentation or i didn't wanna be that presentation anymore. I think a lot of us do is also we can't we're trained not to present their selves. Honestly because what we're not liked or this is what is like on tv and film and god knows tv and film gets everything right. Well yeah. I mean it's like that's definitely what i am trying to model myself after most of the time is like You know john wayne. Yeah shit. my daughter's shit about like beauty. And i'm like where the fuck is coming from like these. You know like it's how she's already at the age of five has the importance of image in her head. And i'm like i don't know what like we monitor what she watches. Pretty all mike. Where is this coming from. Do you have that with like. I wonder what the flip of that is for boys. Well he's you know he's a little younger but We go on hikes up in the forest sometimes in like a you know the author. Any lamar no. She's something really brilliant. Which is if you want your kids to connect to god. She teach them to love nature. I just think it's the most brilliant thing to say because you know regardless of what you want to call the sum total of things There is something so spectacular about When you go into a foot for me. When i go to forest it's just wild because it's like this game that we're playing on this side of the forest immediately stops in the forest like there's no cars traffic lights. There's no like especially up here in the mountains. You're you're a you can find places where you're just alone whole new set of laws is happening. Natural law the rivers flowing down hill and the way that like light shines through like green leaves and the sounds of a forest. And so we're we're walking up there. Or ju i'm driving up to this place. We like to hike at. And i'm like force this guy this is god and so he's he goes. Wow i wanna touch. God i wanna hold god as like oh. That's the both beautiful wild. Yeah it's wild. But but what. I may be the reason it seems while do us is because we aren't that level of wild like what's more wild than a kit. That's a primordial wild creature mentally physically that the the like all those things the story. They haven't built up the story to tell themselves. Yeah and so. Raw they're experiencing rar reality and the most beautiful way and you know. This is actually a one of the ideas about like people who are enlightened. That's they're not it's not like they're studying or something it's just that because they've sort of figured out or managed to or however you want to put it because they're not so much connected to their story anymore And because they are connected to that whatever that is they just say the most perfect beautiful things you've ever heard all the time just instantly pops out of them it just because that's what we are as i've been taught that's just what humans are like underneath the story. It's everybody is like that. Everyone is like not just like a child because children can have no self control can be like incredibly temperamental and like sometimes accidentally violent. But i mean like fundamentally good and underneath a story. That's the that's what i think i. It's interesting because i think of my daughter. And i think of her fundamentally good and she says these sweet poetic wonderful things just without thinking often like once the sun and the moon both out at the same time and she's like the moon state out because it fell in love with the sun which is such a simple poetic thing. But i was like. Wow that's really like that's a great line. Yes.

"You were drinking a lot like you're like i wanted to the myth i've come into the midst like i and it's funny because now that i had quit i thought about a lot of like just a lot of masculinity toxic masculine masculinity attached to its men drink. And you're like oh you're feeling angry. You have a drink feeling sad you have a drink. It's like all this shit that was like crammed in my head about it. It's like really part of our culture and it's like it's not healthy like to step back and analyze it that way like let's not like mushrooms. You take mushrooms you like. Oh i'm gonna go expand my mind and have a spiritual journey whiskey. What what like have you ever looked back in a moment your life man. I should have had two more shots at that party. Now would have really been. You never look back in a moment. Gosh drink or i should drink more. No never but the right thing with those v fifteen beers ahead. I said all the right stuff. I have noticed though that like now that like i've figured out a way to moderate that part of myself where i can just have like a glass of wine or two and then go to bed. You know what i mean like. I have noticed that there is a quality to it that is the reason. It's so celebrated the reason that it's like looked upon like religiously and mystically and stuff like that is because if you can like control the demon inside view and not like every single night hammered just because you had one drink then. There's something to it you know you. There's there is something not nice to it and but yeah if you can't do that they can't yeah a lot of people a lot of people can't and I mean jesus christ man having like. I'm sorry i talk about this too much for having like experienced true. I got addicted to ketamine for like a year. And he no. Oh god yes. Oh my god so addicted. so addicted. it was it was it was ridiculous and was this gwen. Was this this. This was like before our our children you know but The the the like right right around there you know i. It was like when i just like. It was so gross man and it wasn't doing anything for me and it was like wasn't even i wasn't even achieving the effect that i like about it and so i just addicted. You know is humiliating. It was just a confrontation with the reality of like look. It doesn't matter it doesn't matter how cool how cool you think you are spiritual thank. You are a strong. You might think you are this or that. There is more than likely some substance out there that once you get wound up in a. It's not quite as easy to get out of it as you thought. And i don't think there's going to be shamed about it. I'm glad i experienced it. I'm glad i experienced it because it taught me a lot. It taught me a lot about like free will. And it taught me a lot about like the incredible deception drugs of all kind like achieve in a person's life. If if fucked with my ego and i think that it it distorted my ego and and i think that in a lot of ways probably affected my career and how i approached my career and being like fucking great with that's just like good no no humidity and all especially like i and i just it's it's been to sift through. Who was kind of embarrassing. Wayne kramer once he was like i was at his office news looking at pictures of him when he was in the mc five. And he's like. I don't even know who the guy is anymore because it was just like a drug fueled lunatic. It's so cool to realize that you reincarnate multiple times in any given lifetime. And that's that's what i've loved about being a dad is. It's taught me a lot about reincarnation. And it's taught me a lot about like past life which i love thinking about that staff. People get caught up in it about god. What was i on my last life. What was i before i was born. It's like what the fuck where you ten years ago do you remember ten years ago. Were how much of that do you even remember. You know when you look back a decade ago. You might have some foggy memory of it. But it's foggy and warped and especially if you're like partying you probably don't remember much of it at all so it might as well be another incarnation and there was one before that one before that and one before that it's just inbetween those various states of our life. There is just like what you said. There isn't like death experience in the normal sense. You're not on a slab. You know what i mean and it usually happens kind of gradually. It does it. It's for some people happened. Suddenly some people have like sudden you know strokes or heart attacks or whatever but sometimes it's just as slow thing and then suddenly realize that's not me anymore. I'm looking at it. I have on my wall ear picture of my brother kids and it's like i see this little boy that i used to be. But that's not me you know. That's that was a different life. That was it is me in the sense that we have the same dna.

"So you are sensor and but you know what i gotta tell you this to me like after i went through the period that you're talking about and i was not a fun period. Which is kind of like it's like it's definitely something shedding skin your shedding this like version of yourself. That didn't have anyone depending on them. At all your your including yourself basically you already be like uh some people. Some people obviously are like like have a lot a lot of people that are supporting. But i know you and you know me like you let this part of yourself that was like innately selfish right but only because selfish and isn't that what else do who are you. Who do you have to serve. You know you're you're you're because that too you're taking care of your you're in charge of feeding you. You're in charge of paying your rent. You're in charge of all these things that are just solely related to you as an individual. Then you have a kid and it's like now it's all about. We gotta get healthcare. We gotta get food for the kid. We gotta get rent. I need a stable life. I can't die. I can no longer fantasize. You know what i mean like. I can't do the thing i doing. It was like oh whatever maybe overdose go into the next life. Who gives a fuck. You can't do that anymore now. You have been for better for worse calm. I think for better anchored to the earth and by your responsibility because you decided to bring a life on the planet and from to me. I think what that does is it kind of makes any thing that you're doing holy or you know anything. Yeah you're a sensor but you're not a censor your dad and the reason you're going to do that satanic job is you gotta support your kids fearful love love based you know. It's it's not like you're like lockheed martin making cluster bombs. But i was like. Yeah but it was pretty gross. I mean and it was and it was right around the time that the less moon viz sexual harassment stuff starting at breaking so it was like interesting to see people like men at the company just worshipped him. They're like he's a great no-one he's old school. No one does what he does. And i was like seems like a piece of shit to me. It's like but it was just and that culture was like you know. I had bosses who hassled me and were dicks to me and like i went to. Hr once in hr is what i learned. Because i never worked a corporate job. They're just there to protect the company. So i wasn't protected. I just made my life worse. what's like right. They're like oh fuck. We got a troublemaker. When you go there it's not like they're they're to like you know skuld. Whoever was addictive you gotta shitty boss there. I had a couple shitty bosses. And i i in their defense. I was a shady employees. 'cause i would leave for lunch often and just be like going home. Yeah so it's good to know. Because i hated it and i use all like the last year i was there like i started in january so then like i used all my sick and personal days within like a few months because hated it so much and i was like at may or june. I had nothing. I could call in sick anymore. So you're just locked in. I was like and then i just. You know it's weird. It's martin shorts. Memoir snapped me out of it. Because i just felt like i wasn't doing anything creative. I felt i felt completely lost. And i was making kelly my wife miserable because i was just like had nothing creative. And who's making me crazy. Then i think i strayed. I know as being responsible to my family but a straight away from who i was and who am i totally did not like not to sound cliche. Like i was nourishing myself creatively lee or emotionally. And i was just numbing myself with booze fairly debt costco card that you get when you're dead also comes with really sweet cheap booze costco card. No i am not saying that because they're giving me money well it's a wonderful company and they are giving me. They do send me lots of things they send me a lot of one like get they. Send me hundred pound crates of apples. I i remember when. I got my costco card and i an when i got it is still in the like mid early. Seems like go. There was a weird thing with gaza costco where people were proud of their cart. You know what i mean like. My my dad was kind of proud of his costco card. And like you know you go in and he would show his card like like he was showing like some high level security clearance to get into government laboratory or something but you go to costco. You're excited as fuck. Because you have in your mind you're gonna save so much money and then you leave costco. And you've paid like six hundred dollars for like all like courts of yogurt and a knife set and some lagging what it'd be like it's too much i don't like going in there it's just too it's too much i can't deal with it and the lines are fucked up but yeah costco booze i never i never tried it but booze i have tried and it definitely is not a great solution to having shitty job at least that's been my parents no i was trawscoed two was pretty good and i can put down a big bottle of that is putting down a lot when i when we are friends..

Because i'd sit like two chairs away from him when he was on his brakes. And then i. I was so ashamed. Of what i was doing. I didn't want to be like. Oh yeah dunkin's might like strike up a conversation which was done in any other situation. But i was just like and he. He done a show of mine of fundraiser. I did for a black panther like years ago to raise money for the orphanage which is not the way this call it a jews anyway. Community center community center. But and i never wanted to bring that up to either was like well. He clearly doesn't remember me. But i was so ashamed of this shop which is like the joke like for years on television. They make fun of the sensors. Live would make fun of him. They're made fun of woody allen movies got the last laugh on that one. Woody but i mean the thing is it's not like you like you've been given a list of you know you can't these are the things you can't say and your job is just to tell people you can't say that that's what you just call them offers something you're looking at. How does it work. You're watching some feed and you're like you you can't say that we can't say fisting the ass of a monkey on well there's also will prices right is also because of game shows if the the the game show scam in the fifties where people were cheating and making money. So there's that for that. Were there to be like legitimate. And make sure they're not cheating or that right. The contestants are protected. But for like sitcoms and stuff we would get multiple drafts of the script and we would read them and we'd have to like you have to look out for like product like name dropping products because a lot of writers. I've known writers who've done that. Who would they sneak in things on saturday night. Live and then get like you. Know year free of baja fresh. What yeah Cratia sands did that. He said baja fresh sketch and then they sent him all kinds of swag holy shit. That's amazing so there's like an underground network of writers connected to corporations and there's a sort of like they just know. Look if you can work this in this. Explains every jay leno monologue i. I think sometimes the networks on board with that stuff. And they'll do like with. I don't think there's like a legitimate. Like i don't think she was like. Oh but i think there's like a like it's a known thing like oh maybe we'll get a gift for saying this. I don't think they can. But like lenny. Bruce would do that. Lenny bruce would have a bit where he's like. Yeah roll sits up my sleeve. And then he'd go on the tonight show need say marlboroughs and he would have his agent contact borrow. People have done that. Yeah yeah i mean. There's i've seen a lot of different montages of like various like late night hosts you know working in something that Did they're selling you know my favorite way to actually listen to the late night does do their monologues beats headphones. Sony headphone guy nelson tony. That's great that's only have fun through great Yeah i may have a sony plus now where you can get all the stream all the movies i just. I don't know i brought that up. I just i just really appreciate the film and television sunny has put up. You know my favorite kind of instagram commercial or headphones commercials on instagram. Because there's no way to demonstrate how good the headphone is other than getting some actor to put the headphone on and go. Oh my god. Funniest thing is it's just like these people react to the headphones like they're hearing the sound of the ark of the covenant being open holy. Shit.

Man i you know you're you're one of my old like i've known you so long and We have so many weird memories together. But i'm thinking like what are we gonna talk about. Holy shit man. How about the fact that you just did a show at john. Laurie like that's not. I'm still kind of mystified by to be quite honest like it was one of those situations that just like came together in the weirdest way i was just like i. I don't know because i've like since high school. John lewis has been a figure that anybody in a creative like world is just like. Oh this guy. He does everything he's paint. He's an artist he's yes and so when it came together i was just like i'm like working with a guy. I've idolized admired. Great yes i was a teenager. It was surreal. It came through podcast though. Like this was directly. Podcast related right. Yeah i he followed me on twitter some years ago and then one time i like commented on some tweet of his in he wrote to me and he's like sorry took down and i was like okay kind of right anybody. They deleted tweet but thanks and then over the years we just started like messaging back and forth and and finally asked him to do the podcast he he was like he was reluctant and he would kept going back and forth and he was like yeah. I don't know and one day he just called me. And i i put it up on my patron and actually the i think after the episode than i did with him on the podcast i put some of his voicemails at the very end because it was like all right well. I guess we won't do this guy. But he's calling from an unidentified like he wouldn't give me his number because he had like this crazy stalker ears so he's still paranoid about that. Which i've been stocked. I get it. I thought he was coming onto plug. Tv show because he sent me all these clips and like five minutes into the podcast. He's like yeah. I don't know what i'm gonna do with this. I immediately was like. Oh i know what to do with this. Like i'm friends with adam mckay so i waited too after the interview as i k- i send this to adema cave your interested in. He just kind of not really certain who had was right. But adam like i sent it to adam and then put them in touch in like a month later like i've never seen anything cell so quick but it's adam mckay he can probably john lurie and john lurie who's like yeah. I mean alleged so to me that like the story is so cool and you all made a great show on. Hbo the story is so cool. Because it just shows that you know if you just keep doing the thing like whatever it is something like that will happen or you could. I guess what i'm saying. It's a year ago. You probably couldn't predict that that would happen. You know is you're thinking about the possible things you're going to be working on. I bet that wasn't on a list things. no. And i had no intention of being a part of it. I just what john sent me was like raw footage of like what what the show was going to be. It wasn't even like a full episode. He sent me like fifteen minutes. And i was like i just wanted to facilitate. I was like this is great. This should be out in the world and he. I don't know if he has agents or anything anymore. He lives in an island in the caribbean. So he's just sort of often his own world. And i just wanted to help and when adam was like. Oh yeah you'll get producer credit. Pay you. I was like fuck.

Which are the best songs on Bruce Springsteen's Greatest Hits?
"So there are eighteen songs on greatest hits cd you want to just go through them in order and then you talk about whether you think it's a good song or not and then you said you have some addition a better not on this list that i would include. Yes looking at number one born to run. Obviously that's a first ballot right. Everybody acknowledges that went when you think of for springsteen and the music videos era. This one didn't have like one of those choreographed music videos but it was one of those concert video and i will say there's things about music are especially likable to me. I'm a big sent guy which doesn't use a lot of sense except for dancing in the dark has a lot of it which is probably why. It's one of my favorite songs his. I'm big on piano. And i'm big on horns. So born and ryan has a big horn section of the great clarence clemenceau. Yeah we're gonna run became on the radio. I wouldn't immediately change it. I bled it at least get through a couple of seconds before i said okay. I've had enough of that even before this recent awakening you would have said. Oh yeah. I knew the song. It would've been one of the five that i would given you as an original bruce springsteen number next to read thunder road is a song that resp- eurest adore. But i don't know if it says big and the general population. What do you think i. I had not really been familiar with the song until after we had our discussions. Yeah i do remember it coming on like radio back. In the olden days on classic rock and the ad like that it would get played every once in a while. But i never really paid attention to it. So once we started having our bruce discussions as you force fit it into how many episodes yes i did. Listen to it a little bit more. And i it kind of fits into the born to run that. That's one of the things about bruce springsteen that i don't like yeah he has acdc syndrome okay. We're a lot of his song. Sound almost exactly the same guy now. The musical arrangements don't necessarily sound that way. They will usually have some kind of piano. They will usually have some kind of porn section. For which is which i like. Yeah but you know what it is. It's his voice. His voice brings the band but only in certain songs. There's some songs for. He's entirely understandable. And then there's other times where it's nonstop own. He's basically doing fake. Bruce springsteen from the ben stiller show which was a great show by the way won't be wing. Linda would agree with you that his i don't understand what he say and he has said. It's like a hard mumble that somebody is doing while they're on the toilet trying to push one out. That is that he asked him to make. I've just lost my not necessarily that. That's always a bad thing. Don't forget all of the music surrounding the horrible. Singing is enjoyable. One of the questions. I ask in every week. Bruce does mary get in the car. So have you listened to the song enough to answer that question. I would need to actually read the lyrics because they are so unintelligible so near basically telling me that it's a song about people running away. Yeah and there at the end of it. There's a decision to be made or the girlfriend is deciding. She's going to run away. With bruce right kind of like you know the end of inception when the puppets that's exactly what it is so was that a yea or nay. Oh thunder road. Yeah when we go through this list. There's going to be very few that i would say. Don't count okay. not necessarily that. I think they're great song. But they are acknowledged consensus hits among just a masses. When i listened to that song it's so similar to born to run. I almost have a hard time separating. They almost feel like one really long song. And they're both from the same album and i think that was the theme. He was going through all right badlands. I like that one. I want to be rich for. Expend king teen is a sci-fi till he rules again another one that has really difficult lurks to understand. But i love the dignity. Ding ding ding again piano. I love really hard said piano music. Which is why. Even though bruce hornsby only has like three they are in great. Three one of the things that bruce wanted from the beginning and he still does is. He has a piano player and a keyboard player onstage with him. So you have the view cynth- and piano yes classical piano. That's that's really good combines. Both things that are really enjoy music. If you can get them both going at the same time. I like giant mashes of different kinds of sounds which is one of the reasons why i was drawn to wrap so much because rap samples so many different things at once inside a one song to a lot of people that would just sound like noise and are just a mess. I me i don't know how my brain processes things. But i love that kind of chaos within a song jokin. Good one of the other things as a sports fan when he does. Badlands live the fans. They start chanting almost like if you're in a soccer match so the river was a big hit. Yes buying knowledge that one. Although it's an extremely long song difficult to get all the way through depressing yes it. A lot of these songs are about people down on their luck yet. Town is closing the mill down. And i don't know if we're going to survive as a couple all you know. Is it time to budd dwyer off ourselves or should we go somewhere else. Yeah they all have that similar. Theme jon stewart. Talked about it that. When you listen to bruce springsteen you're no longer just the loser loser in an epic tale. Brian one of my favorite stories about the river. Think of his at the national show and someone held up a sign. Saying it's my nineteenth birthday. Will you play the river. And there's the line for my nineteenth birthday got a union card and a wedding coat. Burma i gotta union. And we're going do not ever heard the song just because adventures birthday. This is not a song. You play to celebrate Any and he was gonna play it anyway right every concert. There's a certain group of songs the river. Wow really yeah. I would think if you're going to pay that much money to go. See bruce springsteen he would understand okay. There is at least ten or fifteen off of my greatest hits that i know i need to give to the masses or else they are gonna revolt. Always do hide the fans. Think of that like Like if you go to springsteen concert and he doesn't do born to run. Do you feel disappointed. You've been like thirty concerts. So would know sam lison one of our poker buddies and one of our friends our podcast. He would gladly give a born to run to hear a different song. And my point is every show is someone's first show. And if you go to your first. Bruce springsteen show and he does it do born to rhyme. You're going to go. What the hell.

Her family moved from India to Minnesota, where she fell in love with the outdoors. 20 years later, she's still astonished not to see more people like her. Some people might say, Isn't this just that people of color don't like to camp? That's a generalization, and they're just because something isn't happening or the presence of someone is missing does not mean they don't want to be there. Too many Americans of color parks campgrounds enforced land are stubborn bastions of self segregation. Racism was a factor at the founding of America's national parks created in part to be an escape for white urban elites. Several were racially segregated into the 19 fifties. Many considered uninviting to people of color into the 19 nineties.

So to start off must preface this with the fact that details remain a little bit sketchy at the moment, but we do know some facts from the Chicago police department, they say that he was walking down by the waterfront section of downtown Chicago when two individuals assailed him, they started hurling racial epithets at in started hurling, homophobic, slurs at him as well, and they gained his attention through that. And they started beating them up. And at this point, there are some actually disturbing details in the police report, they say that he had an unknown chemicals. Substance poured on him during the course of this thing. And then before that TAC was done the two. Individuals apparently wrapped a rope around his neck, according to police, those individuals actually fled on foot. And now the police are trying to find out who they are you mentioned, homophobic, and racial slurs. Police are investigating this as a hate crime. Tell us more about that. That's correct. So they they obviously see this as a potential situation in which this was either racially motivated or motivated through homophobia, or perhaps both it seems so police are now calling calling out to the country as a whole asking for tips on who these people might be one bright side to this is that it does seem that smell at is feeling. Okay. He's in good condition. According to the police he actually brought himself over to the hospital shortly after this. And she seems to be in good condition. He brought himself to the hospital. He was not taken there by ambulance or anything. That's correct. He's a very popular figure in Hollywood. I've seen a huge response on social media today toss more about what the reaction has been. That's right. So almost immediately the moment that this news broke. We saw an outpouring from his colleagues and co workers and friends across the industry that includes Carrie Washington, viola Davis, the co creator of the show Danny strong actually came out with some really strong words.
