New York Gov. Cuomo’s Family Is Said to Have Received Special Access to Virus Tests
"Is an update on the scandal in New York involving the governor. Andrew Cuomo. I know a lot of the media. Might sort of feel like this story's over. Certainly Democrats in New York many of them would like the story to be over. They've had their say. They've called for resignations and that sort of thing, and now it's kind of losing steam, at least in their mind. But not here. And there's a new wrinkle to this and a pretty significant one of that. Let me give you a flashback quote. From one of Andrew Cuomo's Emmy Award winning press conferences almost exactly one year ago. This was early days Really bad in New York last year problem PPE for frontline workers problems with testing. Of course, that was a huge, widespread problem for a novel disease. The governor went on TV for one of his press conferences again Award winning That's quote. We still see people coming out who don't need to be out even for essential workers. People have to be careful and again. I've been trying to communicate that everyone. Everyone is subject to this virus. It is the great Equalizer. I don't care How smart How rich How powerful you think you are. I don't care how young how old this virus is the great equalizer and quote that was late March. 2020 And with that little reflection on the great equalizer. Let me read you. This story from the Albany Times Union broke yesterday, high level members of the State Department of Health in New York. Were directed last year by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Health Commissioner Dr Howard Zucker to conduct prioritized coronavirus testing on the governor's relatives. As well as influential people with ties to the administration, according to three people with direct knowledge of the matter. Members of almost family, including his brother. His mother, and at least one of his sisters were also tested by top Health Department officials some several times
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Facing Impeachment Investigation
"The governor once again. The he had done anything inappropriate. He said that he had not abused anybody but he acknowledged that perhaps People took it negatively post for them with a picture. He said he's sorry for making anybody uncomfortable. But right now. He's trying to forge ahead defy despite pressure all around him. What about the reporting on his staff and the nursing homes will governor. Cuomo himself has not addressed the report about his aides and allies. Making contact with other former staffers but rich as a party. A senior adviser said that it was an effort that happened organically and regularly there are conversations with former staffers. Governor cuomo has responded to criticism over his handling of nursing home situations by saying that the state's actions were taken to preserve hospital capacity and that they were consistent with federal guidance at the time. The state is cooperating. The governor and his lawyers have said with federal inquiries into the nursing home matter and the state has said that in the instances where it held back some data from the public it did so out of concern for the accuracy of those data and a desire to not misrepresent what had happened now as you mentioned the new york state assembly including many democrats members of the governor's own party say they are launching an impeachment investigation into these allegations. How would that work. And what would the time line be going forward there. There's very little guidance on how it would work or a timeline. As the last time in new york governor was impeached was in nineteen thirteen. The state doesn't give a standard in its constitution the way the federal government has the high crimes and misdemeanors standard. So what would have to happen. Is members of the state. Assembly would have to consider a resolution of with articles of impeachment if it passed by a majority in that one hundred fifty member democrat dominated house. It would initiate a trial and if convicted by two thirds of the people present for the trial. Mr cuomo would be removed from office. Thing that it's important to note. Is that under new york law. Even upon the act of impeachment state law provides that governor cuomo would lose the executive powers that are currently afforded to his office. What we heard from the leaders of the state assembly on thursday is that the chamber's judiciary committee would move forward with an investigation that would have the ability to issue subpoenas hear testimony from witnesses. Consider documents about both the accusations of inappropriate workplace behavior as well as the concerns over covid nineteen state nursing homes which is also being looked at by federal prosecutors based in brooklyn. Jimmy governor cuomo emerged as a national leader during the pandemic and now a year later. This is a much different reality. his facing. yes that's right. What's remarkable about what's happening to governor cuomo now is that. He's arguably at his lowest of lows in his four decade long political career. And it's coming immediately. After a high. In the early days of the pandemic governor cuomo gained national prominence for daily briefings about the corona virus. He placed himself and a circle of close. Aides at the center of all aspects of new york's pandemic response and he received plaudits. He won an emmy award for the briefings point. In december. he was under consideration for appointment. As attorney general by people close to now president. Joe biden to see him right now. Fighting for his political life is something that lawmakers political observers say is quite remarkable

The Fallout for New York Gov. Cuomo Over Nursing Home Deaths
"Year, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo's could press briefings won him a devoted following around the country. It also earned him an Emmy Award. But today the governor who normally uses his time to deliver data and talk about vaccination efforts. Took more than 20 minutes to publicly excoriated State Assembly member who's been critical of him if you attacked my integrity. And my administration's integrity. Am I going to fail to respond? No. No. I'm not gonna do that. W My CI's Glen Hogan is here now to break it down a bit for us. Gwen, you listen to a lot of these press briefings. But today was well pretty strange, even by this year standards, right? Can you tell us what happened and who Governor Cuomo was going after here? That's right. So State Assembly member Ron Kim he is a Democratic lawmaker from Queens. His uncle died of covert 19 in a nursing home last spring, and today the governor accused him without evidence of a pay to play scheme regarding campaign donations from nails. Salon owners. Some of Kim's fellow state lawmakers quickly came to his defense and said quote was attack was clearly an effort to deflect further criticism of his own handling of nursing homes. No grand Kim has been a vocal critic of the governor for a while now, so so why would qualify ring this up now? Well. The governor's anger seems to have started last week after Kim smoke to the New York Post about a call between top Cuomo, Wade, Melissa Derosa and Democratic lawmakers. Now, in a partial transcript released by the governor following the post bombshell, it was revealed that the state withheld nursing or that she admitted that the state had withheld nursing home data to try to slow the potential federal probe into nursing homes. So after that story, Kim says he got an angry call from the governor himself, threatening to quote destroy him. And after that, the governor demanded that he retract his statements to the paper. He then says he got more texts and phone calls from the office here. He is describing the call. Was a 10 minute, one sided, screaming and yelling where I felt threatened that if I didn't act in a certain way to issue a statement, not tomorrow. Tonight, in his own words that there were a tradition. Cuomo's office sent out a statement vehemently denying he threatened. Kim, saying the office has a long hostile relationship with the Assemblyman Kim, like you mentioned has been critical of how the governor handled this four months, particularly his withholding of the true death toll inside nursing homes, and he's also criticized his controversial immunity provision, which was passed in the state budget last year. After big campaign donations from nursing home industries, and that provision basically shields nursing homes from liability for covert 19 deaths early on in the pandemic. Now, some context here. This public attack today on Kim also follows a letter that Kim and several other assembly members signed. Urging other lawmakers to support a bill that would repeal the governor's emergency powers. Can you give us some background on that, right? Right, so these powers they were granted by the legislator last year, the start of the pandemic. But now Kim and several other assembly members are trying to drum up legislative support to revoke these powers. So they sent out a letter yesterday to fellow lawmakers asking for their support, saying the governor had obstructed justice and withholding of nursing home deaths. And that not revoking the emergency powers makes the legislator complicity. Now, some experts who spoke with my colleague Chris Robin's earlier say, even if these emergency powers are revoked, the governor still has broad executive power because of the state's constitution, but also because of his, you know, ongoing state of emergency powers, but If they go through with this and revoke these emergency powers, it's definitely a symbolic political rebuke of the governor and his handling of the pandemic. Yeah, and just to remind listeners to. There's even more context here because all of this has unfolded in the two weeks since New York State attorney general a tissue James released the results of a probe that revealed the actual death toll of coded inside nursing House. Rate, So that kind of started this snowball effect in the last two weeks. She actually didn't have the total number of deaths, But the governor's office had for months and months been withholding that this number. It's the number of people who were in nursing homes but were later sent to hospitals where they died. In other words, the state had only been counting deaths that occurred inside nursing homes themselves. As an expert. I talked to said this New York was the only state in the country that was doing this. So it was only after this report came out that the state finally gave the full number of the deaths of people who had died in hospitals. There was also freedom of information, requests, a lawsuit and eventually a court order. Now that we have the full that led up to the full release of this data. So what We know now is that Cove it killed more than 15,000, New Yorkers who were residents of nursing homes and other long term care facilities, And that number includes nearly 6000 deaths that were not previously counted in nursing home deaths.
The Failed Shangri-La Plaza
"The star studded high production surrealistic musical sitcom shangri la plaza was originally produced as a pilot for b. nineteen ninety ninety one season but for one night only the network decided to air it as a summer fill in on july thirtieth nineteen ninety and that half hour made history. Well kind of in a really weird bad way. So we're gonna talk about the sitcom shangri la plaza. All of the weirdness that occurs around it to talk about cop rock. That was abc. Same year that this came out. It has a very cop rock field. But what is what are your reactions to this the intro. I could not tell you what it was about. If you pay me any amount of money it so abstract i guess and never mind the cheesiness. that's i expect that it's one thousand nine hundred ninety experimental. Things are a little bit weird. I was just saying that. Like i guess seinfeld came and say yeah television at that point but i could not tell. It seemed like a place. Where maybe there's food and abc live. I don't know what is highly. It's hard to tell it's it all began really with nineties. L. a. mall culture shangrila was inspired by that and it was filmed on location in north hollywood strip mall at the corner of vineland and burbank boulevard. In north hollywood california just went for it. This set a strip mall was built on top of an original strip mall which is where the problems really begin. This mall on mall design was the topic of a washington post story in nineteen ninety emmy award winning art director.

I was listening to your new album sacred spaces and i had been listening several weeks back but i wanted to listen again this morning and i thought you know this music is perfect for this time in our in our lives on earth and i had a different experience and i decided that an ocean of candlelight or ocean of candidate is my favourite today.

Everybody just calm down. So it's really about the places that people the experience the memories that you hold a sacred yeah and ultimately it's about gratitude it's ultimately about not only holding these things close to you but why are you grateful for because to have things that are important to you. It's not enough to kind of come from scarcity and to be sort of fighting things off as you're descending pieces of your life. I think. I think what i have learned in my fifty years on this planet is bats. The only the only place for walking us in some ten years ago i had this delusions of grandeur. I was gonna write a symphony. I've written a lot of pieces so this was not going to be one. But i was gonna write a symphony. This was going to be search for god and all the stuff. And and i got a sort of a movement don and material written the wall and i put it away for years and about three years ago i called the charts in look at them and i was like well. You know what would wanna to estimates are no fussing with the some of the themes and i said. Maybe this isn't a class copious. Maybe this electron piece. Ab there's an entirely new way to be treating this material. So then what i did was i spends a almost four months designing sounds and i had no idea what sounds. We're going to go with wet song. Or when i was going to do is made a big pile things and so i got so bad. Eight hundred different textures salim's samples of different things did and i said to myself. Ok mail that.

H i'm one of these people who has a very hard time relaxing. Even though i've known for creating music if i'm relaxed forbid awfully so. This album has created a very Interesting palace for me to relax to betaine to a stretch jorgensen s and i've heard from many many many people around the world that they do their daily access those album now which is a very early. You've really captured this. What i've found in the in the couple times that i've listened is the that i'm energized while i'm relaxed and i'm like what that's really cool.

"Jane austen's persuasion playing on elliott next year middle next year to fill. That and i'm so excited. I'm super excited. Yeah it's a great with a female. Directors aurelio bella. It should be really fun. That is fantastic. I have had ten pacific on this podcast. A very well known labour politician in australia. She's the biggest austin fan of all time. She will be delighted. That's that's good news. Yeah let me come now to the specific questions that we ask at the end of each podcast. I asked my guest to comment on a statistic or sometimes more than one. Anyway he is your run of statis- here according to the annenberg inclusion initiative which analyzed one thousand three hundred movies in two thousand and nineteen twenty seven point nine percent of speaking roles action or adventure movies went to women are the time you're looking at comedy. It's thirty eight point seven percent of speaking roles. They then looked at the top one hundred movies. Forty three percent depicted a girl or woman as a lead or co lead with three of the leading women. Actors aged forty five or older. Any of those statistics. Surprise you not really and then disappointing but also what. The movies themselves were that we're in the top one hundred i'd like to. I know what our interest. Broadly is as a as an to say. What kinds of movies were watching. And whether there's a way we can encourage i mean and maybe those movies hopefully more diverse and yet still gender to advice on the male actors and that's least more diversity rather than just a what male lens. I would hope that. There's there's more opportunities and i do feel. There are more opportunities now than even five years or ten years ago in film and tv. And i think there will be more as well as we as we go forward because there are more women in decision-making roles as soon as in a commercial interest to have more women in in roles that it's it's going to happen and i think the more we can prove that box office draws and also actually the less we rely on just box office for four metric than we can hope to change that kind of thing. What's the worst misogyny you've had to do with your career. I just ignore it. I just don't have time for it. So i don't take it on. I thought about this was really. It'll come to me and other time. But i have a good old think in thought not. I'm not. I mean other than just a bit of boys clubby kind of thing where you know with a female director on onset. I get a little bit of my backup going. I wonder if you will saying those things because it's a female director and that may be made being sensitive to it like i said but in terms of direct misogyny to me personally. We've been pretty lucky to be sped from that if you had all the power in the world just for one day and you could make one decision to improve the life of women around the world what would you pick the earnest of contraception to be on the men to be on the mail that it wasn't just us having to deal with the pill or i mean condoms obviously there necessarily for in the eyes and all that but if it were easy a few not to be pregnant because of something that the man was doing pill or something they had to take. Then that's what i would change. I think particularly women in developing countries would be in a better position. They didn't accidentally get pregnant. Because of something a man could could've controlled a very good idea..

"And that's really fun. Being enacting like politics means that all of your triumphs and you losses applied out on the most public of stages of this year. You were nominated for an emmy alongside a who's who of incredibly talented women had it feel to be nominated and tell me about your decision to flash a pretend emmy of tin foil as a good night to joke when you didn't win. That was because i was getting my hair and makeup done. My housemate was totally thumbs. Board was like oh make you an emmy. Because what if you win. You're gonna need one that. I'll just make you an emmy this amazing thing. It wouldn't stand up. So i put it on my water bottle here. I put on my water bottle to make it like an actual saddam statue again and it just made it feel a lot more. I guess all all of its sort of bells and whistles and ceiling and it made it more fun. I guess to really get into it all and to make it something even though i was just time and do you very much regret that. That couldn't be the emmys we normally know them. No not at all. That was that was fun. Great so silly. I mean i'd love to go to the emmys again and hopefully if it happens again to be nominated would be wonderful but i think this is my first time. I went the before actually to the actual event which was fun but to be nominated. This time it'd be at the time for it was kind of wonderful. I go to stay in my pajama pants. And i go to be with my close friends and and celebrate in a way. That film will personal and close to me more meaningful to me. Helen mirren has described us spectacular. And said she was blown away by your work and wouldn't sign onto the film winchester and they see we're involved. How common is that kind of support from other actors. I'd like to believe that. Even in the world of hollywood women find a way to support women. Is that right. I think so. That's been my experience definitely. And i noticed when i graduated from the because you end up hanging out with the same people you you're in the acting community you make more as you may sort of. Your community grows logic with with h. Graduates because everybody else knows everybody else then. I realized very quickly that conversation at parties social events. That involved are working. Or what are you auditioning for. Became very uncomfortable. If someone was auditioning on some wasn't and the only way to kind of solve that was to say hey. I auditioned for something. You should go in for it to get rid of the competition to believe in abundance. I guess then brings it on. And and i think my experience then has has been kind of abundance in that camaraderie then to go. Hey evolution for this but you're actually better for the role do do you want to go in for this. Call your agency if you can and certainly from from older women will have had a strong mentors in all the jobs that have done. It's fantastic to hear now. Obviously succession is on the horizon. Filming the next series of projects that are in the future. I'm actually doing persuasion..

"You approach playing that character with all of her complexity. I think i thought more about how that dynamic was when they were children. That was really where i felt. The truth of those characters begins because they're playing with such dangerous kind of macro decisions in a sense. You know the decisions they make on a whim in the boardroom. That day have down the line. But the dynamic is still quite within the family which is quite the micro society in a way like they really. They have a family dynamic and that's how they influence the decisions i guess and so for for should've growing up in a family of boys having three older brothers who all very competitive and all competing for their father's love she really could have gone the princess way she could have gotten away with just floating around looking pretty and tossing her hair and being daddy's goal and and having failures. Eli like that but instead she kinda throws a happened during a wants to compete. And that i think was the was the foundation for me to to begin with shifts. That she's a fighter and she's very much like like logan she's definitely a fighter and it is a refreshing change from the way we see women portrayed in film and the assumptions that are made about women in real life often. We assume that women should get to succeed if they're sort of pure of at all more selfless than men. We actually have leadership models way. We say a woman scripted out. She's one through she's paying just as self-seeking just as difficult just as brickley. But that's what is and was that one of the things that attracted you to the role that it's very atypical to bunn would normally say on the screen for a woman. Oh definitely definitely i. I'm much more interested in playing women who have complexity and also a dubious moral compass that we can go. I really like oh hang on to like i'm conflicted. About why like. I don't agree with a. But i like to back like that. I think is much more interesting than having women fit into this. What is the mother. Sisterlove a whole kind of madonna those kinds of versions of women also two-dimensional and if we can keep creating these characters that are multifaceted and complex than we're going to see more diverse stories. She's anything of than two dimensional rollercoaster of bagging her and then peaking fingers because she does something that you just can't believe looking forward to the next season when you inhabit a character like that they life the clothes. How do you reconcile that with how you see yourself in how the world sees you. I presume in shooting cessation. You've been on very elaborate sets and locations. You've got to be surrounded by all the trinkets of wealth because that's part of the story. Had you in feel about that at the end does it somehow. China's you take it with you or sky. That was work today. And then you're back to sarah..

"Making a strong commercial case for a greater number of independent films helmed by women for a famous cinema going audience. Did you find that there was a difference when a woman was behind the camera. Obviously you've had mixed experiences with that from what you've just said in terms of female directors. The i've not noticed a stock difference. Which i think is a good thing in a lot of ways in that. They shouldn't really be a difference other than like a positive to aspect may be this little more empathy compassion with failure. And you feel a little more safe to try something dangerous or risky. But i've i have had good experiences across. The board with directors are the male or female and have found we worked with some directors on on succession and they In my experience in terms of what i experienced from them directly this is mel directors have noticed though is that sometimes they can be taken advantage of and spoke novo by oftentimes male members of the cost of crew. They wouldn't even know that they were doing it. I think there's a. There's a slight change in dynamics that i get a little bit protective over just because it's a female director doesn't mean we need to change our behavior and maybe that's what i'm doing doubling down on not changing my behavior or thinking it's different. It's very interesting set of observations. I want to talk to you about something. You've spoken about in the past which is imposter syndrome. And this is a feeling known to many people women in particular that they are actually for the job that they given has that impacted on you as you've gone through your career in film and theater. Yeah i think. I think we the impostor syndrome i've been so victim to what i didn't even realize i was doing it when we first started succession. The first five episodes i was convinced that they needed to find me. Because i wasn't the right person for the job and i shouldn't be there a water north..

Expired at comment or question is that we won't told there was the possibility of potential oven. Expired it would. We believe that that was true. And if we didn't know if it was true then would behave differently. I think i think i probably would have myself. Yeah i that whole expiry date thing is increasingly something that isn't with us but i do think that there's still a different standard for female beauty. My obesity that female female beauties very rooted in men youthful. But i think now eh when more inclined to discuss the merits of of beauty at any age. And maybe through. Those discussions of the positivity like through the positive lens of looking at beauty at at any age we can then i guess. Move away from the negative aspects of the aspect of the closing door i guess. And how much did you know about all stink about the potential for sexual exploitation in this power differential as you was starting out. Did you worry about. Oh did you. Encounter may to moments we sadly no. That pound has been very misused in the film industry. I didn't actually encounter anything like that. And i just wasn't aware of it or i wasn't in the right in the wrong place at the wrong time yeah i. I've experienced some sort of beauty expectations in expectation on me as a as a female lead of particular film to be thin and mortagne and different colored hair and bigger eyelashes and whiter teeth and that was a difficult way to begin korea but that actually was coming from more female lead production not a male production may to sexual harassment or anything like that.

"Who is now. Mr who's still at scotch college wonderful teachers who were very encouraging of may high school within and then through drama school as well it had really good mentors. Who wanted to. I guess challenged me to think about acting as a job and acting as a career that you could choose not just a hobby or something you do because you're good at it and you get parental adult commendation for people say. Oh you're very good at that kind of stopped doing it. More if someone's giving you a compliment for something you sort of start. Exercising more in that that arena. Neither is presumably full of incredibly talented. Young people do you remember that experiences competitive one collaborative one was at different being a woman than being a man in nodar. I mean nearly there is a little bit of competition. I think in in a drama school setting because everything is pitched on how you're going to graduate and whether you will get an agent and what will happen beyond. But despite that i felt there was a real sense of community there in my year group and also since i have still maintained friendships from the people who are in my year and gotten to the point where i've forgotten that that's how we know each other which i think is really wonderful. Forget that only the ten years because we went to school together right now. Of course i forgot that which is lovely but in terms of men and women. Interestingly i think i would question this there was only eight women and sixteen guys in al clause and that was fairly standard throughout the on classes from memory above and below me the same to be less women and apparently it wasn't now i wouldn't want to put serbia but apparently that was as a reflection of what would be expected in the industry that the same unfair to release a lot more women into the industry if they're not going to be getting jobs and that could be. A rumor was spread around gossiping theatrical. Drama students. But i feel like if that was true then we should put more women into educating them in drama school situations in getting them skilled up so that they can create those jobs on the outside. Absolutely and it's an interesting reflection isn't of the industry. I've role and thinking about the industry. I've roll when a talented young person. Like you comes out of some way lot nada and you're trying to break into acting you're obviously dealing with people who've got a lot more power than you with studio bosses. Scientists directors people like that. Had jim manage that. Did you have a plan about how to pursue a career in acting or was it more organic. There was just the first opportunity. And then the next opportunity i think both i think definitely. It's hard to have a plan in this kind of job because there is that lack of control it is more organic one opportunity to the next with an understanding that unfortunately because i wouldn't want to school women on just being nice and that gets you hired but in this industry it pays to be a good person. Just be nice and kind to each other and want to work with fun people with people who enjoyed working with and then we'll cod your job which is to to bring talent and technique and professionalism and then hopefully they'll hire you again but i did also have a have a plan and that for me. I wanted to be able to do both theater and film..

You Can Ring Nobel
"A video is making the rounds on the internet this week caught on one of those smart doorbell cameras. It's 2 a.m. And a man is anxiously knocking on his neighbor's door trying to wake him. Does the man need help? Is there an emergency is the neighbor's house on fire? Was there a Prowler in the area or some other kind of threat? No doubt. The man Robert Wilson is trying to wake his across the street neighbor to tell him that they just won the Nobel Prize. My name's Moxi and this is your brain on facts. A good reputation is more valuable than money for lilias. Serious a Syrian living in Rome at the time of the big b c a d change over we have no way of knowing if Alfred Nobel ever read publilius, but he definitely had reputation on his mind the Swedish chemist engineer and industrialists found a novel way to combine good old Gunpowder with the exciting new discovery of nitroglycerin to form a truly earth-shaking invention Dynamite. It was a game-changer for Industries like coal mining and it killed people like it was nobody's business both intentionally and through many many Factory explosions. Nobel got richer with each Improvement on the dynamite then his brother Ludovic died a French newspaper ran an obit for Alfred having gotten their lines cross somewhere along the way they were shown the remote As more the paper proclaimed. The merchants of death is dead. Dr. Alfred Nobel who became a rich by finding ways to kill four people faster than ever before died yesterday. That's gotta sting. Nobel had no children and a sudden intense concern about his legacy. So he decided to put some of the money he'd made into the service of repairing his name with a real long-term strategy in his 1895 will drafted the year before he died Nobel instructed that most of his fortune the equivalent of two hundred and fifty million dollars today be set aside to create an award five annual prizes quote to those who during the preceding year shall have conferred the greatest benefit of mankind provided you benefit mankind by way of physics chemistry physiology or medicine literature and problematically vague more on that later long piece. Wait a sec. Say those of you with better recall than me. Where's the Nobel Prize for economics? There wasn't one. There still isn't a part from the one that they're kind of is. The bank of Sweden prize in economic Sciences in memory of Alfred Nobel was created by Sweden's Central Bank in nineteen. Sixty-eight. What about mathematics game popular Apocrypha is that Nobel lost the woman he loved to a mathematician and so did not consider mathematics to be important enough. There's no proof for that story sadly wage and while no one knows for sure the reason it could be as simple as Nobel really wasn't a math guy. I feel you there. Winners are announced in October and November the culmination of a Year's preparation more than six thousand people like Nobel laureates AKA past winners School in various fields and officials from various universities are invited to nominate candidates about a thousand of them for each prize, which usually results in between 150 and 250 nominees. It's not just names in a hat. You have to write a detailed proposal in favor of your nominee and no no matter how much you want to know how cleverly you think you can get away with it. You cannot nominate yourself. Also. You must be alive. Nobel prizes aren't awarded posthumously at least not any more than a few were in the early days, but it was decided in the 1970s that that wasn't their bag anymore, but exceptions make the rule and there is one notable exception in 20 job. 11:00 Canadian immunologist Ralph Steinman received the Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine but he passed away between being nominated and the prize being announced akong assignments daughter. Her father had actually joked about getting the Nobel Prize shortly before he died. They don't give it to you if you've passed away. He said according to her I got to hold out for that. He didn't quite make it but they gave them the prize. Anyway, Steinman must have had a real sixth sense when it comes to convoluted award schemes because non-winning nominees are kept secret out for fifty years in part to prevent a sort of Susan Lucci situation. For those of you who don't recognize the name Susan Lucci is an American soap opera actress who was nominated for a long time. Emmy Award nineteen years in a row before she won. I always suspected that she got the Nam as a running gag after a
How Walmart Plus is taking on Amazon Prime
"Ben you the chance to talk with Walmart's chief customer officer about Walmart plus. What did you learn So what's interesting is I guess it's not terribly surprising is that Walmart is really trying to position Walmart plus. Something, for Walmart customers as opposed to, Hey, this is our our Amazon prime killer or what have you. So they're looking at it as like additive to people that are already getting groceries from Walmart or already shopping online from Walmart, and you know certainly curious to see if there's a market for people to spend a hundred dollars on yet another subscription service. Yeah. You bring up a good point because walpole walmart's customers tend to shop at Walmart to save money to get bargains. and. These customers to spent another hundred dollars a year is that you think that's an argument that that really works I. Maybe. I mean like, Walmart track record for subscription services is not great They've already attempted a few in the haven't lasted so. They are certainly making a big push with Walmart plus by There's a long way to go there. I would probably say the this is Walmart's argument for getting a Walmart plus subscription is that if you regularly get groceries delivered than this is a smart way to like just basically bulk your your. Delivery costs but at the same time, you know the perks are currently kind of meager for one hundred dollars a month just just for context. Could you run down some of the yes? Oh, it's it's three things. One of them is You know. As soon as same-day delivery, four orders, thirty five dollars or more that includes like general merchandise and groceries. And the reason they're able to get it to you as soon as same day is because a lot of those shipments coming from your local supercenter. So that's Walmart really taking advantage of the fact that they have centers that are located around major population centers and. Suburban communities, rural communities all over the place. So Hey, why don't we just convert these into a distribution centers in that way, we can compete much more effectively on commerce that's the biggest piece the other two. Nice. There's a fuel discount and then there's also this like scan go feature. In. The Walmart I think it's in the Walmart APP where you scan stop who've your in store and you can avoid the checkout line that way you just like scannon pay for it and You know. That's that's a nice to have. That's a nice feature obviously, especially during coronavirus bud is you get people to pay all that extra money for for scandal now so they're gonNa have to do more and they said just as much in the interview that I had with them. You know. So this is this is the starting. Gamble here and they're going to build from there. Ryan. Clearly, this is early days for Walmart plus you get a chance to talk to this executive about for the the origins and how they came up with like what did you learn? The ask so they they were seeing a lot of success with their pickup service I. IT appeared to me that they were getting some good traction on their grocery delivery service. So they're like look let's double down on this Let's see. Let's see if we can make this work to to really build this out But yeah again, like certain things that they didn't do are black stuff like prime video which like is so big and influential now that they win like Emmy Awards. So it's not just like some random catalog off crappy movies like they. They make a lot of their own original content and the reason I bring that up is that you know is Walmart going do something like that or they gonNA create their own studio are they gonNA create their own music streaming service that they're going to bundle in there. Obviously, they could go in a lot of directions here by the I'd Stein it's still not there yet obviously, they're still just starting. Yeah. Targeting it's it's. Really Walmart customers e think there'll be a point where they reach out to abroad audience really trying to go after those those Amazon prime customers. Yeah. Probably like you have to remember the Walmart is the world's biggest retailer the world's like have. You know one point, five, million US employees and Walmart customers in effect means like a ton of people. So traditionally, they have been known to. Support and serve a lower income population and. Laudable obviously people it. You know. Everybody deserves to get good deals by also Walmart customer. So I think that their hope is probably similar to Costco I would imagine that people would subscribe to prime and they would also subscribe to this perhaps that there are enough benefits. So it's not an either or type of situation. The problem is, is that a hundred dollars a month in addition to all the other subscriptions most people are paying? Is he going to be successful? That's obviously the big question here

Here are the 2020 Emmy Awards highlights
"So much nowadays traditional Glam, gathering of the EMMYS was shrunk down to a virtual version. This year, the winners had to dial in from their sofas but did to scale down show remove any of the fun while I'm joined by the phone critic Karen Cranach from welcome back Karen. Now, Jimmy Kimmel called this the pandemic. What was it like? You. Don't I was reading about the run up because of course, they had five days of the creative emmys, which was very interesting which covered documentarian sports things like that. We don't really get to see those its role waiting for the television ones television on comedy and they're all saying, oh, it's can be terrible to glitches and there were absolutely no. Glitches at all the writing was sensitive national it probably would have worked alive, and in fact, what they were doing is they were cutting back into the audience of previous years. So at first we thought Kimmel was presented to reluctance of couldn't be, and then of course, we see that it's an empty staple center with cardboard cutouts except one person Jason Bateman. It worked really really well, and as you said, he called the Pan Denny's. You can't have virus without a host modest M.. It. Last year it was host free. So he's making a double point there isn't he? Will he is I mean there is a discussion for all the wards shows that you know do we really need a host to carry through to give a a link King presents between all of the awards and sometimes you need that sometimes you don't, but he's very, very good in this effect was. Nominated himself didn't win but for for this year. So he solid reacted really well, and particularly with Jennifer Aniston was was there in I'm assuming was a prerecorded, extra it live. Where he's burning one of the emmy envelopes to sanitize it, and if the fire gets out of control, she actually does put put. The. Fire. Out on stage. Tell US little bit more than about. Who won who lost how things went? Arguably, this was possibly our final reminder. Some was that it was a blissful reminder of our recent past, but people could still make television in the same room. I think we're we're all I. Think we're we're going to get nostalgic about these virtual awards shows really because they could do so much more with with a with a regular live show somebody sends in a prerecorded or televisual link you feel cheated. Now you feel that you've got more possibility because the people can actually record something or talk to you live. So it Kinda works really well, for example, before I go to the awards there was almost apprentice reunion lease a Jennifer Aniston Courtney Cox and Lisa kudrow showed up altogether and Jimmy Kimmel's going what are you doing together and he goes she goes well, we've Jennifer says. We've been living together since nineteen ninety four. It was just a lovely surprised wouldn't have been able to happen in real life. So it was great now. watchmen with the big re reimagined science fiction. Series was for twenty six nominations at one eleven including UN series. Star. Regina. King and also best limited series which is amazing and that helped push the HBO show to Thirty Wins in total, which is very important and also Shits Creek, of course, we have to put little tm on there because it's spelled S. C. H. W. T. s. did a sweep a to record for comedy shows of nine wins and it was yeah it's it's incredible. It's last is the final. Season for that show and it was wonderful to see all of our beloved. Canadian actors. That was a hugely hugely popular series it turned up on flicks. But it didn't start with nets, which is weird. Yes it has found that second life. Elsa Bell Rutland. Well, it was really pop TV and it just it got a cult following because. I mean, these I've been watching Catherine O'Hara Levy since the seventies I mean they were at second city which the rivals Saturday night live we've seen them in American pie everywhere. These are very, very good season actors and writers and the fact that they show up with this unique show on pop TV it just goes to show you that if something's good against audience people will see
"emmy awards" Discussed on All's Fair with Laura Wasser
"Our show is about every kind of relationship. Even the ones we watch on television and in the movies particularly those today we're speaking about relationships on TV and the new romantic comedy series on ABC called the baker and the beauty. Our guest is the witty and Brilliant Series Regular Emmy Award winning actor, Dan Dickinson Sqi. Dan, what are some of your favorite shows streaming now and on TV about relationships. Well. That's funny. You should say about relationships because a lot of the shows that I am drawn to are not about relationships, because I'm in one because I live in one, and because it's, it's a daunting task every day to navigate marriage and parenthood, and so I- oddly enough. I wanted fantasy. Come home and I either WanNa watch a documentary series or reality show I, do love. I'm just starting to watch. Believe it or not I'm late. Late to the Shit's creek of it all, but so brilliant allowed so funny and so wild like you know people are so afraid of broad comedy. I was a huge huge Carol Burnett fan growing up, and not that it's as broad as that, but you do I mean comedy is comedy, and it's funny for a reason will, and grace is hilarious because it goes there. You kind of want to go there and comedy blasting I do love watching. Oh, yes, she's creek goes. There are sure. I'm now obsessed with this. Netflix documentary series called love is blind. have. You seen it now but I. Heard about is crazy. It's crazy. It's a social experiment where people you know. The Bachelor whether you love it or not is a show that is very specific to a particular kind of man, a particular kind of woman that want to play that out. With cameras rolling and in front of each other, and it's it turns into its own kind of social experiment. Yes, this one has everything to do with whether or not people can find their soulmates without ever seeing them in toll. They've committed okay, and so they've these day after day after day there in these little pods separated only by a very thin glass, and they have conversations across that glass day after day after day, whether they and they and they get drawn to people purely out of the tone of voice and the conversation that and the things that are being said, and it is amazing how we the viewer see people. We know what they look like so like don't do it. Ugly ugly. Hot But exactly she is biting offered. She's a her. She's cutting. She's pulling on her hair. This has no eyebrows and screaming. The truth is what are they honest not about their aesthetics, but like again if they were cutter or like, they were picking their eyebrows, or whatever I mean, are they at least portraying themselves because those are those are serious issue. Trying to make light by the way of A. Notice or whatever those elements are those are serious issues. My point is only that Dan. Kinski hater I'm a hater. Anybody hasn't OCD. I've washed my hands. Thirty five times. no I I. Think First of all look. We don't know these people to some degree. You can always ask anybody who signed on the dotted line to be on a show where they're going to be filmed. Right that you know there are some part of you. That wanted to play this out on on it with cameras rolling right so that is instantly shink. Chink in their armor as far as I'm concerned that said people are unbelievably revealing when and what's. Know when they cannot be seen when they're not being judged by their. is the thought like being in a confessional? Think about that, you only see the. Does feel that way, and it's very quick that these people start to reveal themselves in a way that you know some of them have game, and they're trying to be charming, and you can tell, and some of them become a emotional about what they're talking about. I guess when you have nothing else to drawn like the expression on your face or what you think, your hair looks like are granted. All of them are looking pretty good, because they know they're being filmed. So and there's also the casting process. Of course, these people were put together for a reason, but I have watched many of them very quickly back to back and I. Find it fascinating and the period of the first five to six days. Not to give anything away, several of them become engaged. And wants somebody who proposes and the other person accepts the proposal. They see each other for the first time, and it's a it's a big reveal. And then what so why would somebody do this? They're just. Get married really, WANNA get married. It's hard out there Laura. It's pair. Of listened to look when you marry some ugly person that you madam to hide well just depends on where you're values aren't clearly Laura. We show. We know where yours do they ask like? Do they say like? What's your financial situation like not on camera? No I haven't seen that. Okay you. Just like them like they talk about how important family is to them. Some of them keep things out. The Salads, what do they look at how much they harassed? Swipe left. Guess, what you are not someone for this show. I'm just GONNA go out on a limb and say you want to be on the show where I want. A little more slowly than I WANNA see a tax return and the picture and I'm good to go. These is for people who don't want that. and. Where's the balance? If you've got a plan, you can be a little sort. Put it that way all right. You know honest. She's honest honest. I can't help you because this show is going to be about people that you don't necessarily know how much they make. What they look like. But I'll watch. It is very interesting to watch, and we're not done with it yet, but anyway this is something that my husband and I are now sort of obsessed with and oddly enough. I've been trying to get my husband to go in a couple of therapy with me for twenty eight years, and not into it, but I'm watching couples therapy. Showtime! Right, he doesn't believe in marriage. So what's the point and so when? Couples, therapy watch that show. For sure not going and by the way I watched the show, so we're good, right you. Know. He loves that therapist so much like. Let's try to get an appointment with her I'm like you just WanNa meet her. We also saw cheer. which everyone's obsessed with? With her two. so I've been watching a lot of docs series and a lot of I.

There was like three contestants whatever that would come on kind of like the dating game, but it didn't happen on the stage.

"All's Fair in love and war. Our show is about every kind of relationship. Even the ones we watch on television and in the movies particularly those today we're speaking about relationships on TV and the new romantic comedy series on ABC called the baker and the beauty. Our guest is the witty and Brilliant Series Regular Emmy Award winning actor, Dan Dickinson Sqi. Dan, what are some of your favorite shows streaming now and on TV about relationships. Well. That's funny. You should say about relationships because a lot of the shows that I am drawn to are not about relationships, because I'm in one because I live in one, and because it's, it's a daunting task every day to navigate marriage and parenthood, and so I- oddly enough. I wanted fantasy. Come home and I either WanNa watch a documentary series or reality show I, do love. I'm just starting to watch. Believe it or not I'm late. Late to the Shit's creek of it all, but so brilliant allowed so funny and so wild like you know people are so afraid of broad comedy. I was a huge huge Carol Burnett fan growing up, and not that it's as broad as that, but you do I mean comedy is comedy, and it's funny for a reason will, and grace is hilarious because it goes there. You kind of want to go there and comedy blasting I do love watching. Oh, yes, she's creek goes. There are sure. I'm now obsessed with this. Netflix documentary series called love is blind. have. You seen it now but I. Heard about is crazy. It's crazy. It's a social experiment where people you know. The Bachelor whether you love it or not is a show that is very specific to a particular kind of man, a particular kind of woman that want to play that out. With cameras rolling and in front of each other, and it's it turns into its own kind of social experiment. Yes, this one has everything to do with whether or not people can find their soulmates without ever seeing them in toll. They've committed okay, and so they've these day after day after day there in these little pods separated only by a very thin glass, and they have conversations across that glass day after day after day, whether they and they and they get drawn to people purely out of the tone of voice and the conversation that and the things that are being said, and it is amazing how we the viewer see people. We know what they look like so like don't do it. Ugly ugly. Hot But exactly she is biting offered..

I actually saw a clip of it last night. As part of the bachelor finale with Yes yes did. I hear an accent on her. She's from Australia. She's from Australia and And he's and he's Cuban. Cuban American family and the cast is is all Latino. I mean she Her Mom was Peruvian. My parents are Argentinian. Did nothing that speak Spanish on that set our crews we were shooting in Puerto Rico. It was kind of magical in that respect. We really immersed ourselves in Latin culture. The show is so is such a sweet and grounded realistic. Look at a family in a Cuban American family in in Miami and food plays a role in the show as well. It does. I mean the bakery is a big part of that world and the cast David. Del Rio is the brother. And Lisa dolls the mom and Carlos Gomez is the DAD and beliefs. Escobar though I mean these are such amazing actors and I was never in scenes with them. I mean my stuff is really in the world of Hamilton but the family dynamic is so infectious and fantastic and it. It's there's a vibe that comes off of this show that I think will be unbelievably Infectious for people to watch this was originally an Israeli series. They brought it over from this. Very successful Israelis Israeli format called the beauty and the baker. And it's still on and in fact it's on Amazon if people wanted to just sort of. Get a sneak. Peek of what the world is. The Israeli version is on Amazon. A side plaguing their version of it. But it's very similar in that world that takes place in Israel and it's really about this Yemenite Baker family in Tel Aviv and this gorgeous model and how the baker in the family winds up falling in love with her and and It's a format that just feels romantic in the Notting Hill. Kind of but the family comedy blended into it is kind of what makes it feel like we're reinventing genre right which is lovely in a way. I think you can attest this. I was married to a Cuban briefly but I'm still friends with his family where I think. The Jews and the Cubans super similar super similar a lot of passion. A lot of no holding back. No hold number correct. Things get discussed shit goes down and it's sort of what the currency is of this show So we'll see where we're very excited about it and it's going to be on ten o'clock on Monday nights on ABC. I love it. I did want to say that you had a recurring role as the president's chief of staff on the ABC Drama Series Scandal. The husband of the chief of staff the husband the husband of the chief rash on scandal. Most people will know me as James Novak from scandal and it was a life changing Fateh. Emmy I congratulate saying it was a life changing experience being on that show and career certainly career changing Shonda rhimes I had met. I guess when I did an episode of Grey's anatomy I then went onto write on the writing staff of Grey's anatomy and around that time I was offered this part as the husband of the chief-of-staff no one at the time. The show premiered an even. The actor didn't realize that his character was gay which I think is he met yes. I'm into Leamington until you meet me. The title of my talk but it was kind of a fantastic way of introducing information. That should be matter of fact anyway and it it I thought it was GONNA be a couple of episodes. It wound up being close to thirty and it was. I will never forget it. I love that okay. And then you've also got a partnership With Lisa Kudrow for seventeen years. Yeah tell us a little bit about that about the comeback and then web therapy which your husband directed correct. We we listen. I started this company years ago. She was still. I think it was the last couple of years of friends We are Producing partners And over the years we have made and developed a bunch of different pilots. We currently continue to produce our passion project which is a documentary series called. Who Do you think you are which traces the genealogy genealogical journeys for prominent people? We've done you know ten seasons almost And we are returning to NBC this year. Which is where we got our start. It's kind of unprecedented. We started at NBC. We got nominated for an emmy and then moved onto. Tlc got nominated for a few more and then after are run on. Tlc We have been asked back NBC. And it's going to be an amazing return and Leeson I produce that we produce the comeback. Hbo Cult Favorite. And I was in as well and is a favourite from so many one of my favorite shows on television of all time. I mean she's just phenomenal. And if you haven't seen the comeback season one was in two thousand five season two nine years later holds up is just as good And Don and and my husband on and Lisa knew have known each other and collaborated on several. She's been the star of at least three of the movies that he's written directed and and we've been very very good friends for many many many years and and in the early days of our collaboration we started a show called web therapy. Which wound up doing four seasons on showtime And has just over one hundred amazing stars. Who lent their talents in this improvisational comedy with a therapist? Who's not worth? I mean she's the worst therapists Larry and I let her also online. Yes that you were really ahead of your time. I mean we have a website called. It's over easy. Yeah where we do a ton of stuff. Online people can get divorced online people. Yeah Information about therapy mental health. All that in the back of my mind this whole time has been your show. Yeah well web therapy at the time. It was two thousand eight like they were very very few things happening. I mean a lot of businesses happening online but but web series. The notion of doing a web series was always a bunch of pilots. That didn't go. That got caught up into little pieces and lease it was like. Wouldn't it be great to do something funny? That is actually lives online. Like people are doing so many things online that they do in real life. Wouldn't the stupidest thing to do online? Is Three Minute therapy during your lunch? Break at work and so she's and then we started talking next on clubby correct. Exactly by the way had quit. Been around in those days. We probably would quickly. But we were lucky enough to make this show for the web. And then we were able to repurpose it into half hours for showtime for Four Seasons And had Meryl Streep on and Meg Ryan Steve. Corral and CONAN. O'brien and Julia. Louis Dreyfus. I mean this is amazing. It and everyone is so unbelievably funny on the show. And my husband. Don was masterful at directing Improv way. Which is not easy to do We're very proud of that one. That's awesome and then speaking of groundbreaking was Mary me which is an NBC show. And you and Tim Meadows. Play the Kevin's which are gay. Dads Anne yes. That was and that was a couple of seasons. Was that one of just one. But it was so much. Fun David. Cass was the writer. And he's so talented. And Casey Wilson played our daughter Right And Yeah we were an interracial gay. Couple of Ah Daughter getting married and it was some of the most fun I've had on TV and your names are both Kevin Cabinet. We have the Ron's that live across the street from my God it's more and my husband's Amazon's people like you guys are done. Dan and every time we introduce ourselves to anybody they're like. Oh my God that's funny. You're done and Dan and we're like we are but it happens more times. Certainly when you're gay ever would want actually. When I was a baby attorney my farm has always done same sex cases even before there was divorced. There's a lot of cohabitation and there were a lot of palimony cases but I had an older partner and whenever we represented him sex couples he just could not. He couldn't get their names straight. He would always call our client. The opposing party side which was really annoying to apply and they would always say like can you paying you about seven hundred and fifty dollars. Our Name Right. Hey keep calling me his name when I fucking hate him right now and he's trying to take all my money. The were side. Are you on the.

"Just take the pieces off. The wing tipped pads. How long did that last though you tell me? She's wearing tampons now. She is she is could come over. And that's how important this is to me because when I went to boarding school I had to bunk with an banquet but live in a building with a think. Twelve other women maybe right and so we're all sixteen and when women live together they all start menstruating at the same time only me and the other young lady that was from Princeton New Jersey were wearing tampons and I think we were the only ones that were not virgins at the time and these girls had been told by their parents if you bought a Tampon and you're no longer a virgin so we've quickly disabused them. Not because all of those pads sitting around at the same time was fucking disgusting. So we said we're having a meeting. Look at Johnny eating. It's how to use a Tampon. And they said we will come to that meeting. We will listen to you. Assuming what you're telling us is true that we're not losing over Jimmy. But you also have to tell us how to get blow jobs. That was the quid pro quo. Adrian did that because I've never been so great at giving blow jobs but everybody everybody one put it that way. That sounds amazing. The guys won a Lotta guys want of the girls one but I can tell you right now. I will never ever ever be teaching my daughter appropriate. I mean I think there are other places you can go. She figures out working. Stay tune everybody because in the second half of this show trailer voice for that please. Coming up a all right. Johnny wants to move on his most avid fans remember him as the writer producer and star of the hit indie romantic comedy. All over the guy. I do remember that from two thousand one starred as what was the character. Arthur in Second Act opposite Jaylo and you play facinia southern preppy who has an MBA from Duke and worked with Lopez Character at Value Club as a team. Builder actually just saw that. Probably on the airplane is that it was on the scene a on the airplane. Yes it's a great fan. So is this. We found it was a lot of fun. You also appeared in the Post. Starring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks and under the Tuscan Sun and the opposite of sex. A wide panoply.

"Unfortunately they to your point, which we were just in San Diego for a birthday, and we're walking down the street and I put my arm around him so casually because like you said we live in this bubble, and somebody drove by and yelled fag. Yeah, which doesn't exist. Orange County. I know you don't forget that that's something that can happen. That's why you don't don't ever. Take your your spouse's hand. I don't em- private or in public or put your arm around your spouse. There's no reason for it. That's what marriage is for. It's to never touched another person now I've just I've only learned that having been in it for twenty eight years, but there's nothing better. Better than being able to just own your own body, and not have to ever touch another one. I I have another question and again I can't even believe. I'm asking it, but when you were talking about legally and wanting and practicality, I noticed you never mentioned God. Does God or religion come into the equation of this marriage family situation at all? No, I have married an atheist, okay? A staunch and devout. Atheist! And I grew up Jewish but fairly. Reform. A Bar Mitzvah I take the kids once a year at high holidays. We pass over every year. Don Very open to us. At least continuing the traditions that were important to me. we celebrate Easter God is doesn't come into the equation. Okay, you know, and there are times when I sort of regret that and there are times lately in particular because I've got teens now where I think Catholic school would be a really good thing for them to learn. I don't know if you could just opt into that. Dan Yes I'm sure that what I've heard through the grapevine that especially in Catholic in the Catholic sect, yes. Anyway they have open There's a lot of empty slots these days. Yes No God who isn't really a part of the equation and Don wh- is very atheist, and so we don't talk about the lack of existence of God in our house. We certainly have left it open for the kids to sort of find it if they want to down the line, but they can't even find their shoes right. Away way down and God's.

"That seen it gets me every time I actually like tear up. It's refreshing to know that even after doing thousands of divorces. You're still a softy. When it comes to love this is true. You'd think I'd be more jaded but part of the reason I do. What I do is for the realizations and reflections. I get working with clients and how that allows me to have new impressions regarding love and all of its forms. Relationships make the best content. I mean from the movie marriage story to this podcast or insights blog on. It's over easy. Relationships make good story. I guess that's why the Bachelor still around though it didn't make esquire's list of the best shows of two thousand twenty a little bit curious about esquire's list of the best shows a twenty twenty because some of them don't really seem to me to have that much to do with relationships but in event. I mean Shits Creek Awesome. Jazz totally does and how those family are amazing. And how their circumstances change how they all relate to each other? Yeah and then. That show on Netflix. The circle I mean that takes dating relationships in a whole new direction. My Kids Binge. Watch that on spring break. I do not understand the good place hunters on Amazon which I've heard is amazing and the outsider on. Hbo which I binge watched. I don't know how much that has to do with relationships though but anyway it was awesome. Esquire says those shows are the best on TV so far but stay tuned. Because today we're going to give you a sneak peek of you'll be loving next and tell us all about it. Let me introduce you to our guests. He is the Emmy Award winning after. You've seen on the big screen and the small screen. He's also a writer producer and bestselling author. Whose book about parenting is one of the funniest memoirs of all time. He's a data has been a client of our great friend of the show manager. Mark Armstrong welcome to all's fair Dan Bucatini Sqi Janis. Big Fan of the shoutout. If you haven't out tomorrow. Marc Armstrong all right. So Dan this show as you know about relationships and human nature and all that and I was thinking about it this morning we have not had johnny a Dad Dad parents. No I am honored so give join us. Is this your first episode? Ever if I'm the first basically now. Now here's the first of this came. Crashing has a sexual husband. Dan You are the first okay. Thanks Yeah Premiere episode so okay. Dan Tell us a little bit about you. I would not have known this based on the name your Argentinian. Well Jewish yes. Okay Yeah Leo and medium. Julio and Myriam Shalom. Thank you exactly. Those are the the most Jewish name she actually. My Mom's name was Maria at the time that their families immigrated to Argentina wages their parents from eastern Europe which is how that happened not so popular to be Jewish not so popular show and it's a Catholic country and so everybody had to have a Latino Berge name okay so all the Jews of Argentina for the most part we all have the funniest. It's so funny because it's a phys- timing yeah gooky. Julio Book Attend Ski Bob Logbook Itunes Scaling. All the first names are Latin. Names we now and Schanberg right you know. So there's you know the Argentinian Jews. Because they sound like Pedro and Pablo and Julio and Ramon and their last as their big Arjun Jewish Argentinian community. There is I mean. I will say that at the time in the nineteen thirties and nineteen forties when eastern Europe was shit. Show me more than Mo. The country is now more than the world is right. There was only open at immigration in New York City and in Uruguay and Argentina. So a lot. A LOT OF EASTERN EUROPEAN JEWS WOUND UP in South America at that time then ironically right after World War. Two A lot of the Nazis escaped Georgian Tina so talk about like a melting pot. You wind up in Tina with all of these hiding Nazis as well as the the Jews who escaped not to Nazis hiding in the United States to the TV show were just talking about her. Is that it's amazing and we're growing some of our own which is exciting. Hey so you went to Vassar again in two thousand eight you married. Don Your husband right. I met Don in one thousand nine hundred ninety two so we've been together for a very long time right. I like to say I was ten when we look good. Okay yes but we. I was in my twenty s and we met. Twenty eight years ago. Say during you had that little four-month window when we allowed same sex. Yes time in California and you rushed to the we did also I mean don was always very anti marriage. Fat always always always but then we had kids. We adopted kids not as a married couple and then it became legal to be married as a gay couple and it felt really wrong that in the window where we could have gotten married to the narrative to tell our kids that yeah we had the chance to get married we just for us. So did you suspect that it was not gonNA pass. No I didn't Johnny has has been got married during that same time window. Yeah I mean it was a period of time where you ran to. You took the opportunity while you still could and we did. We got married on in our house. It wasn't a wedding really. It was just us and our kids babysitter and Tom Arnold. I know Tom Southmead officiated. Your wedding is that right did I did Janis twice twice. We'll we'd had the commitment ceremony in two thousand and two and then in that window and eight. Got Civil. Yeah On Halloween and then had like a little ceremony ceremony. So let me ask you this okay. Because I I'm I'm not anti marriage but I have two kids and I wasn't married to either of their dads and it was not important to any of us at it one of those things and I have many gay friend? I've actually officiated a couple of same sex weddings because I give good wedding But I've asked why is it so important is this like why does the dog liquids balls is because we can and so. You WanNa do that. You like that. Analogy down to serious going downhill very early on. It's because gay. Dads lick their balls and so just to try to make it all come full circle because they can right no. It's a very good question. And it's a personal one. It really just depends. It felt like if if you if you look at marriage as the creation of family which you may or may not down. But you okay. We'd you know getting together with Don when we did. We always sort of talked about and I was younger than dawn but one of the things he always said to me which I really stayed with me. He was not a guy who when we met was interested in marriage. He was like the notion of having to commit to somebody for the rest of your life now in front of a lot of people just to hold you. Accountable feel so wrong. Which now in hindsight it makes a lot of sense right. He was saying that he was like. I think you're committed to somebody you you sort of in a way. Commit to being with them today and then you treat tomorrow as a new today and every day you sort of make that decision maybe not consciously every single day. Good Morning I'm committed to today. You don't have to say that but almost every day you wake up relationships needed to start your day with the commitment but in a way you know building a relationship you don't think about what forever means it's huge and it's not something that was of course none of us know what's the next day is going to bring so the notion there's no better testament to wanting to stay with someone then to wake up every day. Just decide that day that you're still together right for that day and then you look back and you realize that you've accrued twelve years of today's and that's so much more romantic than stating twelve years ago. That in twelve years told a bunch of people in front of a lot of people in a legal document. I'm committed to it then. I don't have a choice. That is less romantic. That said were together for ten eleven years before. Having kids was even something that we decided to do. Okay and when we did you know. In addition to sort of becoming a family of two we were becoming a family of three and then grew a family of four and it felt at that point that for us to and again. It's a decision to Appear Integrate Assimilate in a way that felt little bit of normalcy right or our kids. Say who have two days and there's no mon-. There's already a lot to explain to the world that the more we resembled the conventional family and the more we explain to them later in life that you know when we had the opportunity to marry legally we wanted to form a legal family that included US being legally married couple and so it really was about that it wasn't it wasn't sore fairy tale and romantic. Because here's the thing I have to ask myself why I got married almost every day. Well may maybe as morning artist problem is that I'm I'm now you know having to remind myself way married so I I better be able to sell it good to my daughter at the time that I do. But no don doesn't wear a ring because he doesn't like wearing jewelry and I always feel like just weird anyway like it's good for the kids to look across the table. They're not going to see as touching each other or hugging each other or kissing each other looking lovingly into each other's eyes. That's over twenty eight years it's all. It's all shorthanded. Exactly it's like oh not now making lunch. You know what I mean. It's that kind of thing. So if they're not going to see that at least like this gold band on your finger is a symbol. That's what I think. They don't need to see it rang in order to is like the soap gets caught in the ring. And it's all very practical things just about practicality and I think that even are getting married in a way was about taking an opportunity that would make the formation of our family something that felt practical and make our kids lives easier when they had to listen to their friends. Talk about their married pants. No I definitely I I know my kids. You know have because their parents were never married. That's always been something that they've had to explain not a big deal but just like that's something that they've had to explain Do Your have your kids ever gotten towns to me based on the schools and where we all live probably not but if they ever gotten a hard time about the fact that they have two DADS. I can only remember recently. There is a kid at the I think it was. The beginning of this year was the first time that some kid who was a bit of a bully and has a lot of problems as it is was sort of looking for things to bug kids. Now which is really what. Billy's are all about trying to find a button and they push it right and I think that there was a moment.

At the time, the their families immigrated to Argentina wages. Their parents from Eastern Europe, which is how that happened not so popular to be Jewish not so popular show, and it's a Catholic country, and so everybody had to have A. Latino Berge name okay so all the Jews of Argentina for the most part we. All have the funniest. It's so funny because it's like. Timing Yeah Gooky. COOLIO book attend ski. Pablo Bucatini scaling first names Latin names we now and Schanberg right. You know so. There's you know the Argentinian Jews because they sound like Bedroo- and Pablo and Julio and Ramon and their last. As there big Arjun Jewish Argentinian community, there is I mean I will say that at the time in the nineteen thirties and nineteen forties when eastern Europe was shit show. Me More than Mo, the country is now more than the world is right. There was only open at immigration in new. York City, and in Uruguay and Argentina so a lot a lot of eastern European Jews wound up in South America at that time, then ironically right after World War Two. A lot of the Nazis escaped at Your Tina so talk about like. Pot you wind up in. Tina with all of these hiding Nazis as well as the the Jews who escaped not to. Nazis hiding in the United States to the TV show were just talking about her is. That it's amazing, and we're growing some of our own, which is exciting. Hey.

I like to say I was ten when we. Look good, okay, yes, but we. I was in my twenties and we met Twenty eight years ago. Say during you had that little four-month window when we allowed same sex. Yes, time in California and you rushed to. The we did also don was always very anti marriage fat, always always always, but then we had kids. We adopted kids not as a married couple, and then it became legal to be married as a gay couple, and it felt really wrong that in the window where we could have gotten married to the narrative to tell our kids that yeah, we had the chance to get married. We just for us. So. Did you suspect that it was not gonNa Pass No. I didn't Johnny has has been got married during that same same window. Yeah, I mean it was a period of time where you ran to. You took the opportunity while you still could, and we did. We got married on in our house. It wasn't a wedding. Really. It was just and our kids babysitter and Tom Arnold. I know Tom Southmead..
"emmy awards" Discussed on Ringer Dish
"She had thought about it and also she is a performer and she landed that speech. It was great she she killed it also that show was so so much about like when verdon getting her do right so is Barry in line with the material fabulous great Michelle Williams angeline great and she was there with her best friend up now lovely as always alot the hostess show. This is like eight lows that we've just put into one because though I just would be a real all data yeah just the host Shannon's everyone the presented in try to do it was bad except for like my Rudolph presenters were over. Okay eight presenters at award shows are always some people have great bits. Things work some things. Don't it was the extra stuff that you have to the price you pay for watching award. Show is like being being an Improv show for half the time and it's tough and maybe we should rethink that right but all of the actual the skits and the the the things about how television is important and so I'm Bryan Cranston and I'M GONNA stand. I honestly thought he was doing a bit. I thought it was like a sarcastic thing where instead of doing traditional the intro is Bryan cranston standing up there and he was starting to start by saying some serious things about how important TV's and then it would like work. Its way into a joke about eventually the holidays are dumb but no it was just Bryan Cranston being like TV is so important it was really rough and before that Anthony Anderson I was like backstage running around. I need to save the EMMYS. I'm here the EMMYS. There's no host. He likes his mom's putting them into her purse. I laughed at that. I mean I'm a human being. It was actually his mom. I also was wondering that I don't have I told you it was just really bad and then like they went from there. The shortly thereafter there was a bit with Bob Newhart not being wax-figure and not being dead and it was really bad really really rough yeah. I don't know just take a HO. There's a real stink from this means for me that just sort of it did things work. If people presenter seemed confused used and also they did this weird thing where they would like announce the nominees and then bring out a presenter to announce the winner. I hate that a lot of sequencing was confusing. The sound cues were weird. We noted many times at the giant photo that was projected behind the winter as they spoke was bizarre. Particularly drome really unflattering yeah like if it's a dramatic moment it sure but like it's huge it's huge. I I mean not to be the hockey Matt Person In the room but there is an element to this of like wow it does reflect the state of TV and and that's not where everyone has different tastes in like different things went no. That's the hack thing this reflects the TV because no one has an idea what's going on. There is no one driving the car and it's they're throwing things against the wall and being like me would like to watch on this streaming service and maybe we'll get your attention this way and like what we bring the massing or people out on the thing for ten minutes unlike maybe that'll get your attention and then just the self-justification. TV's important TV's important TV's important we make fun of the Oscars Yeah for doing those montages all the time about the power of cinema like that's what they did tonight. Just like the power of television. It was not powerful powerful to me exactly a high every actor from Geena thrones. It received a nomination came out together and like around the ninety minute. Mark and the each got a few lines. It was incredibly awkward which is allow that was a low. It was definitely seemed like the one thing that the emmys new after this just gave is that they needed to get the game. Three people on scree grrrrrreat likes it so they had everyone except for brand who actually WanNa give this kid hollow point out onstage unfortunately not nominated which I suppose why he wasn't up there. That's why he wasn't Blake. theon was noticeable that he wasn't up there and everyone else allesandro was there less impact overall. I mean I know whatever and it was just really awkward. That was that was a low very confusing but each individual actor did get their own applause and the most host hardy loudest applause was girl Gwendolyn Christi Brianna Tar and that was also amazing itself submitted her emmy nomination because HBO didn't do it for God got it. Anyway showed up was four inches taller than everyone onstage crushed it. She's going to have a really really great career. I love her. I know that can Harrington just signed up for for a marvel movie but she's in Star Wars and she was in the hunger games. I I don't know other. She's in Star Wars anymore. I've learned about this week because I we never know we're like. I'm sorry to tell you sorry for the spoiler also Google double check that she'd have three premade franchise under her belt game with retiree into the Star Wars. She does her fine and that was a dope dope moment they also have the whole cast onstage for veep after after they lost me for. Dr Lead Loss. I was very nervous. That nervous is not really the word because I don't care but I I thought at some point that it meant a game of thrones was not going to win because I was like Oh they got veep and game of thrones casts on the stage because everybody wants to see them but they're we're not GonNa Win Best Comedy and Best Rama but I was wrong because the power of game of thrones is such that even emmy voters know that they need to vote for that ensures survival. Yes crazy crazy stuff. I will also note on the game of thrones cast. We were talking about where their significant others worked in seem like many of the actors brought Esso's Joe. Jonas asteroid does wife but that was the only time I like it a stag party one last night famous none of the famous significant Juliette you you know a significant other that he i. I really thought we were GONNA hit. Full my wife hat trick and it was close. It was the full name I just love them. I fucking love him. I fucking love her. I love them together. I just love them. They're my favorite ally couple all okay. I think they can finally an. La Couple again because the show is higher acceptance speech was just like we're so glad it's over. It's over yeah. Did we mention that it's always over really sorry sorry for being away for ten years. It's over over a game of thrones high when Paltrow's sitting behind the who she's sitting behind Amanda Clark yes possibly but this was during the when they were all she was not clapping for them and everyone else was standing up climbing which by the way so wild like the auditory thought that just the presence of the game or thrown casts meant that they all had to stand up and clap. That's where we are in. TV doesn't eighteen GWENDA through standing up but it was a real like was I in Spiderman moment right here. She raised what's happening. Why do we thought she looked like she was wearing Valentina. She did look great at the CA-. The general audience just looked super confused inboard. STI has lost. Everyone was just like what the Fuck Sean on here. Things did get weird from there. I mean fucking Ozark. I've cursed on this podcast but that's what happens when ozark takes home some really major prices are next low jose singing the in Memoriam for the like weirdly low end low budget photoshop slide show in Memoriam until they got like the last like six six famous people who decided to put their it was like you felt that the production values got better a day. What we love to hear the he went from still image do people well actually? I was big. There was like a key change in the CYNDI. Lauper Auburn really amped up at the end sort of like when they got when they got to the Luke Parry Peter Fonda actually pay Lipton Lipton had the first moving moving flint forward big differ just was a different situation very very very hard to imagine. Somebody else's willing to do it like having Halsey. Do It is tough did you so it looks like pink. No while we were watching this I wondered aloud who invented the in Memoriam segment like who's this great idea and kate a Halloween actually started. Did you find it. A wikipedia Page said that it started in the seventies. That was the most specific thing that I it sounds like some seventy some seventies low-budget nonsense that we still have to deal with okay yeah and now just become like both a joke and a hallmark arc of award shows. It's still get mad when people applied for some people and not for others. It's this. It doesn't mean anything to me. I'm sorry if it means something something to someone who who's Love was featured in Memoriam tonight. I'm generally sorry but I just I don't know. Maybe we could remember people better ways. Try LASI Halsey less sways. It was a real downer. Some highs unexpected drama winners billy porter and Jodi comber billy porter won for best actor for pose rose in a drama series and he came on stage at the category is love. Y'All have and that was just awesome. He's he's seems universally beloved. Yes I yeah I mean th energy is kind of so many people went on stage and we're not prepared or just like I'd like to thank my agent yeah. That's one thing thank your agents in private. Okay like think keep the magic of the award ceremony agents by giving them a percentage of your feet but you actually did agent. He was like my agent of twenty nine years. Person has been with me through a career that was not always successful as mom and that's good but just like thinking your agent for doing their damn job. You know that's their job. You pay them yeah. It's fine exactly the new pride of Liverpool Beatles to Jodi comber absolutely thrilling tonight for me personally. Thank you so much you were. It was very exciting to be in the room with you as this happened but you've heard call. I try to keep a cool. ooh. Yeah I try to keep it down. Give us a sense of what was going on the inside of us very happy. Okay thinking about all the Times that I watched killing even even like Dodie comber run me over with a car. It was very exciting. I was texting in Herman furiously might killing Uber Capitals US CO host. I like to think she played a part in this moment..
