Biden Says Pope Francis Called Him a Good Catholic
"Get to. I want to start with the globalists scenic tour throughout Europe. Now, I spent about an hour researching at this this morning and I found very little coverage about this. It was just kind of almost it was coverage as if this was the Emmys, or if it was the Oscars. It was like here's who showed up, here's what they wore. Here's how they wore their mask and the only questions reporters asked is who are you wearing? You know, what sort of fashion icon? Are they, are they, I guess advertising. So it started in Rome with the G 20 summit. Now these summits are largely a waste of time. It is nothing more than political theater. Joe Biden met with the Pope for an unusual amount of time. There is some Internet suspicion that there might have been something that happened in that meeting. We're going to do our own independent reporting until we kind of go through mentioning that one, but it's very strange meeting between Joe Biden and the Pope. And then the Pope comes out and he says, no, actually Joe Biden said with the Pope said, I don't think the Pope actually set up. He said, he had a Pope just wants to say, I'm such a great Catholic. Which I find very interesting for someone who is okay with a million abortions a year every single year how the Pope could call him a good Catholic, but I am not Catholic, therefore I'm not going to say much else about this Pope. You guys can email me your thoughts freedom at Charlie Kirk dot com for faithful Catholics out there that have opinions of what he has been doing or his certain perspectives. And so that's what it started in Rome, and now they're in Glasgow, Scotland. And so they all flew from Rome to Glasgow for a climate change event. So the most obvious first question is, why did they stay in Rome? Or they needed a real venue change? Why did they go to Naples or Florence? They could have just took a bus. Instead, they had to load up on private planes, and fly all the way to Glasgow, Scotland for the continuation of the internationalist climate change conference. And so Biden has been pushing for a borderless society while he was in the Vatican one of the most militarized walled off communities in kind of nations on the planet. And then he gets in a private jet, Air Force One and flies to

Lindsey Graham Defends Horseback Border Patrol Agents, Calls for 'Incompetent' Mayorkas to Resign
"You know they put. They put fences around capital but the borders wide open to the tune of two million criminal immigrants to this invasion thus far and as democrats report from the border but twenty five percent of them have the wuhan and they're not tested and they're just laughing at you knuckleheads putting on your man. Who put your mask ron. I'm going to the supermarket really a. Why don't you pretend the supermarkets the emmys or barack hussein's party or the border senator. Lindsey graham was talking with show favourite martha mccallum yesterday about the disasters of this administration. Play that clip. Give me real quick quick. So all i can say is what biden has done is he surrendered the border to drug cartels cody's and human smugglers. He surrendered afghanistan to terrace. The taliban and al qaeda in a major terrorist attack is gonna come our way because between the combination of allowing afghanistan to fall back into terrorist hands and have a completely open and broken border here in the united states is just a matter of time that the terrorists come through that border to kill a bunch of us. And here's what. I want to say to the american people. The man on horseback is there to protect your family. The people rushing our border have put us all under siege. And i think the most inhumane things going on right now in america is that the men and women of the border patrol of been completely abandoned. Them god's scapegoat and treated like dirt by elected officials in the democratic party and this administration. So i'm not unhappy. I am pissed secretary. Marcus needs to resign. He's completely incompetent. The border is not closed. It has been surrendered. A man senator. Lindsey graham and bali needs if if if the democrats have the lord and the constitution and the love of america may orcas would be out. He's not incompetent. He's doing what he's being ordered to do. It's you got gotta look up the chain. The handful of people controlling those strings on biden's ira- ira- iraq. You could practically his job moving. They need a little more. Wd forty that jaw just like a puppet. Now

It's not available right now. If they bring back. I'll go get it because that's kind decision that as a real risk for what i'm doing right. Do you know how many more people conservative thinking people would get the vaccination if they would just leave him alone exactly. Just leave them right concern right now that the fact that you're jamming it down people's throats especially after and there's a video in there where cnn talks about You know the anti vaxxers was a gentleman who passed away and his kids.

Saying wow shame on these conservatives are waiting wait a minute. it was actually joe biden and kamala harris. That said there's not a chance in hell they would take the shine. That's what they said when trump was pushing it and trump said. This is a good thing. I think we should all take it. They said there's no way until we get approval. Now what they're saying is all these people that died the few that they can find. Oh well you know. It's it's trump's fault it's the conservatives fault referred for not put for not taking that shot right away. No these are down joe. These are democrats that that took the made everything.

God trenscient the trenches sort of bit that we look for the worst show. I don't know. I'm on record as loving bits so i i shouldn't. I shouldn't come down. Hard on this I love. I love the time-wasting stuff Would maybe means that my mind should be studied or something this this was not. I did really like The non emmy winner support group. I do too. Yeah it's always great when actors can kinda poke fun at themselves and Agree to do something like this appeared. Maybe a less than flattering light. I actually didn't know the jason alexandra number one and now. I'm very upset on his behalf. Yeah yeah. I mean that was funny because it was like maybe two of you actually deserve one like no. You don't have an emmy But yeah the pittsburgh. I mean the one with cedric co stars from the show. He's on on cbs. You know felt very like cbs energy. In a way that it it really just like glaringly pointed at the disconnect. Like like i know. Mom had a few nominations this year. But like cbs shows really. Don't get emmy nominated. It's weird that they're broadcasting. Show in trying to advertise their material. When like yeah streaming shows are winning left and right and you know cable stuff and it just felt like maybe at some point one of the chan- the one of the platforms actually like is winning a lot and has stuff that people really care about who watched the maybe they should broadcast this because there was a a restart disconnect between what. Cbs was selling and what was wedding and network television in general. Todd terrible night it colbert. One variety special live but otherwise did a network show winners and l. s. and l. one variety sketch. Yeah but yeah. I might add that that. That's it. I'm i'm scrolling. It's just it's just funny to have like please. Welcome like vanessa shea and wilmer valderrama. Who are both on. Ncis shows now and to present this award and it's like what it feels like it's beamed in from a different universe and sophia bush was there i can't remember who she was representing with the. Oh you're on tv. Good for you. I want your show as but okay well. Did you see the video vanessa shea winch like crying when she got she found out she got the job on. Ncis how hawaii kind of went viral last week it was it was actually a good reminder that like stuff means a lot to people as it's like their livelihoods and never like oh. I think soviet. Bush was daniel day. Kim because i remember being like oh well he's not on triple with classes like i should wear those more often he has. He's been consistently gorgeous the moment he stepped onto lawsuit track record. Well guys. we'll have another major award. Shown like eight months when oscars happened Maybe by then they can actually be indoors and not have suffragan. Scold them from the sage anything you would take from this This really felt so different from the from. The oscar is with cova like everything changes all the time but anything that you would take from this As move forward into our weird award future. I would just say that if you're gonna do it in a tent at tables and it's the atmosphere's more casual tell your your guests that and let them dress. Accordingly i felt sometimes that a lot of the elaborate outfits which were beautiful in. Everyone look great like they didn't fit the space in a way you know. I just think the evening in overall had this kind of lopsided sense of occasion it was like. is this like a chill. We've all been vaccinated and tested multiple times. But we're just going to try to speak out some fun thing in a tent or is it like. Tv's most glamorous evening you know. And i thought sometimes those two approaches were sort of in a strange dialogue with each other. I'm not critiquing. Anyone in particular outfit by any means but like kathryn hahn like asleep kind of pantsuit that fit the occasion more than did enormous. Ballgowns are very expensive. Tuxedos i guess richard. I'm imagining like the bridezilla. Email that you're going to send out wedding guests. Light dictating what they will wear drafted for years giant belt buckle yes purple ruffles new if you cut your hair before the ceremony dead to be dated i love a ball gown i love the amount of capes that were on hand like. There's a lot of like really bright red gowns on nicole buyer purple ruffles which are very visible like whenever they came back from commercial break. You could always tell her she was. I think i'm not with you in that lake. If it's going to be a television show. I think everyone should go like way. The hell over the top but again how that. If you're there in person and being like where are we exactly how. That would feel strange to to figure out which i didn't match the i. I would advocate for dress up as much as you want. But do some stuff with the set and like the ceiling. Nick make that kind of meet the dress. I guess feel grander. Yeah i can. I can appreciate that. I mean it was just. It was just so much better than zoo more show and everyone and i feel like we that might have gotten lost in like our board particularly my griping about who won like it's. It's just nice to see famous people in a room together like breathing breathing the same hopefully not infected air. Yeah but like ed there is. There is something that is so different about having a crowd in person plotting a winner and the the energy everything i mean i think that the main takeaway from this is just that like awards. Shows don't work unless they gather people in person i think. Yeah i didn't do enough Paying attention the commercial breaks. But i did see hannah wadi. I'm talking to cynthia repo. And i imagine like they both on west end like who knows how long each other maybe forever but it was just like. Yeah more of that. Give me more like people bumping into each other and we're like cynthia revolt like giving michaela pep talk before stage she gets. That was drama. That was great. Yeah real human emotion. Yeah yeah i. i'm i'm told from sources that there weren't really parties after the show last night and maybe there were small things. But i think it it it was fund because it was like well. They treated that like the actual ceremony as like the big thing. You know it wasn't like we get through this so we can go to the cool party or whatever like they you know because i don't think there was a friend of mine old. High school friend of mine was nominated for Writing on bridgeton and I texted her. And i was like you know you looked great. Whatever like but Are you going to parties. And she was like no. But i had the driver take me to in and out on the way home. That's kind of pretend like you're going to a vanity fair. I'm he's partying exactly but yeah. I think they need to be in person like i. I like a friend over last night to watch it. I certainly didn't do that for zoom things. I mean i'll also because we were being more careful about being endorsed but like you know but it but but but you know. I was worried that when he came over i was like i was just going to be boring an act. It wasn't like it was frustrating. In a lotta ways but it was still like it was an award show and it felt real and I i guess hadn't realized how much i'd missed that until last night. And we didn't even mention debbie allen and her her segment great so great and having like they did that thing that i love that like most people that other people hate they had like people up on stage to like tribute to her just really briefly like they have the clips which i think we all love to but just like a second of being like hello we are people who you know and this is how much we love debbie elliott. I don't know how. Michael douglas scott there. But i assume that there's a good reason and he looked great. It seems that she directed him in a movie in two thousand six. I looked up to oh for good. I have them up there and they're going to be banned canes on the floor. I want you know to bars of dance. I want change a little bit about to start wade. I wanna production number. Like i really hope that. By the time the oscars come around. We can get a production number again. Yeah that would be really nice Oh and another thing. I talked about the the clips for debbie allen like. This year's oscar did away with a lot of the clips. And i think that one being kind of controversial because like you. Just don't get as good of a sense of what you're talking about and i thought they did a really good job with the clip for poses..

"Good lord they did we hear that. Do you remember. It's the grammys where your had like a hundred nomination like every single time. They started announcing something new. Just like come into. Does he play a snippet from the song that song but when it just that one word over and over again it does make you feel insane. I did love hannah. Wadham speech And also presents are the whole night. I think she she was maybe the first award that got handed out and so the rest of that. She's just like they're having one like she bowed to rupaul. She's like standing up in sheet cheering for everyone she could. She seemed to just love being there and her enthusiasm was pretty infectious. I thought i'd like it when people admit that they're really happy. They won like i i. I think it's fun when someone's like i just can't contain it. I'm not gonna bother. You know like i think at one point she was like i'm giving an acceptance speech you know. That's always appreciated. Yeah not as fun when somebody comes up with a two page single space printed. there was a similar vibe. Evan peter speech where he just loves. And and like yeah. That's that's what. I would yell if if i worked with kate. Winslet to Also i feel like a broken record on this but when i interviewed geno tipple few weeks ago on this show. She just talked leixoes sincerely about how happy she would be handing him one and how. She thought she was going to win. Which b- actors will very rarely say what they think will happen in the category like they're usually tend to be like well i don't know look everyone's great and she was just guy. I think hannah gonna win. It's gonna be awesome. And she was just so visibly sites like sobbing with joy for handing wanting him to win So it was lovely. Goes into that interview if you haven't yet this episode is brought to you by federal..

"To finding award. Show narrative by my hunch. Is that the producers of the broadcast saw angkorian outfit. We're like no we can't we can't have the means you know and and just changed the votes to live. No i'm kidding. Emma was wearing an interesting outfit but that butter yellow is the color of the seasons. I just have to trust them. That that is extremely i and i. I certainly don't know about such things. So i thought she looked good. I just it was just like a funny. It was interesting. But i think the thing about coleman is that a lot of this is just kind of inertia and a lot of voters being like. Oh no i don. I like her. I like her in the she on the oscar for you know like shirt like you know and even though they clearly closely watched the crown because they gave it fourteen thousand awards. Maybe they didn't closely enough. Watch it to sort of think about koren's performance in you know like coleman has now been in a couple of seasons of the show is she's more enduring like i like that was just kind of like you know when you when you vote. I mean at least when i vote sometimes and i'm not so up on like the down ballot category races if i d next someone's name i'm just like okay. Okay and i feel like this might have just been like. Oh yeah it'll be. A coleman is the star of the crown check selenium democrat comptroller of right. I mean. that's a real. That's a real ongoing pervasive issue with the emmys Which i think is kind of spoken to most loudly and variety categories and specifically variety. Talk show which. John oliver's now one six years in a row It it. it's a nra that has had lots of innovation. There's amber ruffin. There's there's all of these Like new voices coming in and shaking things up and doing things differently. And it's a category that previously has only ever gone to john stewart The colbert report one year and john oliver and it really feels like especially their voters are not are not necessarily looking beyond what they already know. And i don't know you you get the impression. Even maybe that john oliver kind of feels that way too and he got up on stage For i forget whether it was writing or for the main award. But he said that he wanted to dedicated to conan o'brien who just finished his long illustrious career of doing nightly late night shows for the past almost thirty years and didn't has number one and yeah it does kind of feel like in specific categories. And maybe more to the entire show in general that there are there are places where voters just don't really want to look beyond the things that they've already given awards to. This is where. I think it's interesting to bring in the piece of david canfield wrote about how the emmy voting system works. Because i think we all know that the emmy sent a favor of the same thing year after year and it's gotten somewhat better in this era where it's you know. It's frazier winning awards. Eight times in a row But in twenty fifteen they had this rule change where previously for acting awards. Like you would have an episode that you submitted for so if you were gonna like they would select you know people from each branch to be volunteers who watch all of the submitted episodes and kind of discuss and figure and like vote for the winner after that so it was and now they twenty fifteen switches popular. Vote like everyone votes in you. Pick the one that you like the best whereas before you will sit down and see everyone's clip and be like. oh well. Olivia colman was really in this episode. But maybe in mccormick better in this episode. You're kind of considering the entirety of the season. And there's no need to like indicate that you've actually watch the episode. So i think it you. It looked then leads to sweeps like what we're seeing whereas i i love the crown. I'm gonna vote for the crown down ballot as opposed to kind of sitting down and be like well wait a second. This one performance in this one episode stood out in a way that i think for that instead and i think that's a really interesting. He has given us. Good things like jon. Hamm not winning an emmy because his work on madman is not going to stand out in a single episode But at least the things. Like this to yeah. Yeah yeah i mean the the repetitive nature of the emmys is is at some point. I mean to some degree unavoidable. It's just like because shows are on year after year and you know But it's funny. You know we were watching last night. a couple of in my house and All all big drag race fans and when it won its fourth consecutive emmy for reality competition series or whatever it was sort of like okay like it's funny. How quickly things become the ruling party. You know And drag race winning. Its first emmy was. Like i think rupaul one for host like that was like that felt exciting in new transgressive and different and now just a few years later. It's like oh You know and john oliver. I think you know his show when it started like was was you know it was different with the format was different. It was once a week had a sort of more long form you know sort of the central piece to each episode war he swore and now it's like okay you know and i think that like and certainly the crown felt that way not the the crowd i mean you know. I'm thinking back to when the producer for the queen's gambit Called their show risky or something. Risky matter or something. It's like dude. What are you talking about you know so the crown never felt risky either but like you know when when it was first winning it was like oh cool. It's the new thing is winning stuff and now it's just you know again just a few years later it feels very like familiar and i think from a viewer standpoint. It would be exciting to have more of the sort of turnover year after year. Although i should say that the crown mcqueen's game but now mark net flicks is first win of the top award in category on his number one like a mess. Drama best comedy best series hasn't won best comedy And it's Just feels funny because they basically invented procedure tv on the for streaming to get nominated with house cards and it just throws this lucy in the football quality to that And as you know talking about the oscars the same thing is happening then with with them and best picture so maybe this is the year they do that too. Good for not flex. I really want them to go hard on campaigning for the baby sitters club. Next year though. Oh yeah i think that's their best series this is hardcore baby sitters club We've gathered here it's true. Maybe we should just pivot entire would be more than fine with that. When the new season premieres and few weeks we have to reunite so we can just go over each episode and excruciating detail..

"Every single acting winner was white people. Well that's just how it is. I mean it was. Just you know the crown but that didn't you. You're not following some rubric. That like just like the numbers. Don't lie you know. Like it's all so i don't know why people i don't know it's this shouldn't happen. I think the thing that i will say defensive had limited series thing shook out is that category did a better job than any other of spreading the wealth. Like you got a bunch of acting wants from irvy's town. You've got to windsor queens gamut. You got the win for may destroy you and you know for the category with i think the strongest shows in it. That's what we wanna see like we don't really wanna clean sweep. I don't think and that's why the crown felt so boring katie we. We haven't even mentioned the most surprising limited series winner which is halston of halston. I didn't watch a minute of halston. And i like to watch poston. And so how. How'd you win. He was good. I mean the show was very ryan moore. It was it was. It was the kind of ryan murphy that i enjoy versus the kind of ryan murphy that is not for me so in in terms of his net flicks output. It's definitely at the top That might sound like damning with faint. Praise you mcgregor is very good in it but think katie. You've talked about this. About how paul bet knee Seems like divisions best shot So when a main emmy and Regarded winning over him. Does kind of feel also like Like a strange turn of events especially because one division then walked away with nothing. Yeah i mean. I think we all thought kathryn hahn was one division specially we stop and then julianne nicholson beating her but again like that like watching gillian. Nixon beat kathryn hahn. It was like well. There's so many good shows. I'm glad she went to like seeing the competition. Among these like real incredible works at television was tough. Yeah that was an exciting upset. That was upset me. i was. Yeah i was upset. I wished for that. Kathryn hahn had one trillion. Nicholson is so great to that. It's not you can't begrudge that win and they had the whole mayor vs on table seated like right behind the stage. You could watch them like be excited like while they're giving speeches which i loved it. It was a good setup for them. Yeah half of jean. Smart speech was directed towards hacks. But yeah i mean. That's the thing about like julian. Nicholson win it was. That was a big surprise. I thought like. I'm not good at predicting the emmys. But i was like surely kathryn hahn. There was a song like she get like. It was a big thing but kathryn. Hahn julianne nicholson have kind of. I mean they've done very different work but they similarly. They've been in the industry for couple of decades. Now they've consistently been good and finally had like breakthrough things you know this year. I mean i guess. Han has led an hbo show like she. She's been maybe a little bit higher in terms of profile than nicholson has been stepbrothers. Yeah but like both wins would have been nice and deserved. I mean they are both serve among the standouts of their respective shows. Life is full of things to manage your work your family your plans and.
Forcing Small Kids To Wear Masks Isn't Science, It's Child Abuse
"As a nation how far we've fallen. Where tens of millions of people if not 100 million, plus think that torturing our kids and abusing them by putting masks on their face. They can provide no actual evidence whatsoever. Have stopped this spread. None provide some anecdotal stories, little pockets of evidence that it may have stopped an infection from someone actively spewing droplets. You can provide no evidence disease or systemically effective at all. And yet, in the interest of taking it to conservatives and insulting Donald Trump supporters, you abuse your own kids. But it's it's stunning. It's really tough to see how far I watched it, and I'm sitting there and it's like day in the gym, which is even worse. And I'm watching this. I'm like this can't possibly be happening. We have people abusing their own kids. In childcare facilities. This is child abuse. Child abuse. We have people abusing kids. In order to make a political point. And you may say, Oh, they're not abusing kids in there doing it for their safety. Really? Because the people mandating this are doing it for their safety. Andrew Cuomo, No Mass. Remember that picture. Gavin Newsom. French laundry? No mask. London Breed Mayor of San Francisco. We got her coming up next. No mask. Emmy Awards last night. No mask. Uh, Hollywood people, no mask. Yeah. You can't have it both ways. Even the mass stop the spread, and everybody should be wearing them or they don't you think there are force and we should just be abusing kids with them?

Last so i think a lot of these wins were anticipated at one for outstanding comedy series. Lead actor for jason's uday guess supporting actress for hannah. Wadham who plays rebecca supporting actor. I thought with all those guys from this show in the category they might vote split and none of them would win. Brett goldstein one for playing roy cans and swore a bit in his speech. Because i think that's the law. Roy can't log brand. Yes on brand at least go. According to the character she plays was hannah wadham That was a great energy. That was great. That was emma thompson. Acceptance speech energy. There that was really well done. It really got the night off with a bang chrysler bike. Sorry oh my gosh. I'm not responsible pulled out of my face. The next ninety seconds jason yes. She's a delight. She is an absolute delight. It looked at the very beginning because the first two awards went to ted lasso. It looked like it might be like warming up for a sweep and that was not necessarily going to be a great thing. So it was very nice to see hacks slide in there when a writing and directing award and then the great and good genes smart. Yes i mean. She also gave a great very emotional speech That came off is completely sincere and not contrived but those hacks wins landed at exactly the right time in the evening because we also had some ted lots of stuff but also there was a momentum building around mayors. We'll talk about later and there's this feeling you get when a tweet might start to happen. That's very exciting. And then as soon as you think it's actually going to happen. It gets a little you could get filled with dread and actually what s we bat an award show now. I know it's boring jean smart. I'm so happy for her. And i agree.

2021 Emmys: Winner Predictions for Outstanding Drama Series
"Let's talk about some of the nights. Toughest categories the emmy for outstanding drama series goes to margin. Which show do you think is going to take it. I hate to be so predictable. But i honestly think the crown i know. Aaron doesn't like it which tells me it's the only thing we've ever really disagreed on show. Well written is so well active. It's so well depicted. You get a sense that you are in one of the most iconic and well known families and what they have gone through so i just think that. They deserve their roses. I'm not gonna say fully dislike it with the full. Stop a man. He just hasn't evolved yet. Let me let me let me. Give you the pallet cleanser. You need less fresh. let's night. I will turn you onto the crowd. I'm gonna make sure that. I took four naps that day. Prior and then i'll be fully energized and ready. And maybe maybe i should do it post pregnancy so i really don't falsely anyway moving on as we're snoozing on the and made stale like handmaid's him when they're up for a nomination they take it home. They sweep in many categories. So i'm just excited that they're back on this platform to again. Really good picks. I'm leaning more towards handmaid's tale because it was so action packed. And i felt like elizabeth. Moss's directing debut was unbelievable. However we love to give a sendoff. We love to give a proper send-off pose this final season. The cast the story lines. What was written on that paper and what came to screen was so unbelievable. Right and it was life imitating art and art imitating life with billy porter storyline. So i think if you weren't oppose fan when you heard it was a final season. I feel like a lot of people got into it and i think they're going to be able to take it and they did already take home. Some creative arts emmys. the word drove. I mean it was to die for. That show was fully entertaining. You went through all the fields with that so don't really anyone's game. Yeah really out out of all three of those. It really could
Ep 142: How Kindness and Community Empower Todays Nonprofit Leaders (with guest John Hoffman) - test
"Came to twenty twenty one kind of annoyed annoyed that nonprofit leaders and their remarkable heroics in twenty twenty didn't get the spotlight or the recognition. They deserved we all fussed. In twenty twenty about the dearth of leadership in our society. I think folks just looking in the wrong place overlooking leaders around this country who educate advocate feed the hungry provides shelter bring beauty through the arts lead congregations to help us keep the faith all of these people right here in front of our eyes. I see it every day and it makes me kind of angry that others don't or worse still. We talked about staff board. Volunteers of these nonprofits the backbone of our society we talk about these people as nice. Nice really rubs me the wrong way. It feels really pass to me now. Kindness is a word. I can brace but i don't know that i had ever spent that much time thinking about the distinction between the two until i watched a documentary on amazon prime the film. The antidote offered me an aha moment. And i just love a good moment is i learned that the reason i embrace the word kindness is that implies action it requires commitment and in this documentary. We see through stories. Beautifully told by my friend and six time emmy winner. John hoffman the kindness. M- may be thought of as something gentle but it has real strength. John says that kindness is a weapon for change. One of the heroes. He's spotlights in the film. Says quote kindness is a practice. Kindness is a stance end quote. And so today. I want you to meet my friend and john. He and i both know this to be true. Kindness may not be the ultimate antidote. And it's not actually something special you can drop into any community at any time and find it blossoming and you'll find those leaders who are practicing it every day. John's journey developing idea and bringing it to life is as instructive and as inspiring is the film. What's up. I feel lucky. Indeed to be able to introduce you to my friend. John and grateful that he's game to share his story with you. Greetings welcome to nonprofits her messy. I'm your host joan.

Speaker blogger an author on all things leadership and management learn. More at joan gary dot com. I'm a one with a mission to fuel. The leadership of the nonprofit sector my goal with each episode is to dig deep into an issue. I know the nonprofit leaders are grappling with finding just the right person to offer you advice and insights. Today is no exception. John hoffman is a six time emmy award winning filmmaker whose most recent films include rancher farmer fisherman which premiered at the sundance film festival in january twenty seventeen and out of many one which premiered at the new york film festival followed by net flex in two thousand eighteen much. John's work as a filmmaker has focused on the key. Health issues of our time including the weight of the nation addiction and the alzheimer's project all on. Hbo and i in human on discovery. A six hour series set in the world's largest research hospital. The nih is building ten. In addition to making films. John has also been a network executive. He was the adp of docs specials for discovery. From twenty fifteen to two thousand eighteen and After nearly two decades as vp of documentary programming at hbo not in john's by is that he was instrumental. In persuading me that i needed to leave corporate america and become a nonprofit executive director. He may take some degree of pride in that. But it is far exceeded by the gratitude. I feel for what became a complete personal and professional transformation for me so john welcome and i am just not sure i can ever repay you for the art of press. Suasion was on display during a lovely brunch at our home so many years ago. Hi john john really wonderful to be with you. I am so out of you and all that you have accomplished in the time that we've known each other But the the tremendous evolution of your sort of career. You're you're on understanding end leadership in the not so My hat to you for all. You're doing that seems. Seems like you go have a piece of my hat. So so let's pick up your story about the making of this film from the point at which you and your team became kind of hyper focused on this world kindness and how you might explore it in a documentary. I guess you kinda define it. I why don't you tell us about the process. Well in in the two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen but bearing much In i was Very disturbed as so. Many people were by the growing distance in the country. An outright hatred that was expressed in so many ways in the country and i had the incredible good fortune of having a relationship with A nonprofit health system called dignity health. They had funded in a very generous way some public health that i was doing when i left. Hvo when i created a nonprofit media company called the topic good projects and i was with the ceo of dignity house and their model is hello human kindness and i was having a very interesting conversation with him and senior leadership about the strong commitment as a nonprofit helped brighter kindness and our authentic was and i said would you ever consider doing the documentary becomes and lighting and that led to were conversation and eventually led just on that word to them giving principal funding for what became the antidote total editorial control. It was literally confidence in me to make a film on that. Were not a big risk now. Really not big risks. And so i put together a small team. I found a remarkable co director cooperman.

"We should one day absolutely do like supplementary eating forward but we never will. We never will because the time has passed if only a third season coming out that we could watch and then do like a season three. Ooh we could do like a supplement reading where we review the first season in the second season. The third one like back to back. That'd be pretty cool. That could be fun. But that's that's all ask it's a lot. It's a tall. Ask just like pedro paschal. Tall tall tall ass. Yeah it's not only big. It's all the figgins all you can only find a big and tall section of macy's that's true does go out societies ex ex l b. I'm really happy for the men delorean. I'm surprised about how much recognition and adoration. Wanda vision is getting of given that i wasn't a fan of the ending. And so on my mind i wrote it off but hearing elizabeth olsen talked about the process and then kind of thinking about how they made up until that final episode. Some of the greatest like most entertaining mystery television. I've seen and it's really not their fault. That i wasn't satisfied with the explanation of their misery. Because no explanation to any mystery is ever satisfying. I mean in some ways. The only way to preserve the the dignity of a mystery is to never solve it Right this happens across. Almost all mystery. Television ran with the end of mystery. Series people will complain even if the ending is perfect like lost exactly but those first three or four episodes withered as decade hopping and preserving this crazy. Cool like what. The fuck is happening kind of thing. That was some of the most engaging television unseen in a while so absolutely yes it should be nominated for all these awards and costuming set design and all that and writing..

But i think we need to to acknowledge the dark horse of the economic collapse of the global economy. Yes the economic collapse. Global economy is in the running as well people are. some people are saying. Labor shortage should be up there but we know the labor shortage is false. Now of course we're talking about outstanding. Lead enemy is in a global disaster but there are other categories to best fall outstanding foil. There's a lot of interesting stuff happening at the enemy. Awards this year right right and of course how fucked that really hurts our thumb to stab me again Of course the the we've got a lot of contenders in the running for best male in an antagonist role. Yes best male antagonised role best female in antagon- stroll in. Yeah yeah. Best supporting antagonists. Yeah there's a best minion. Outstanding minion awards. Those typically in cleaned up by the minions lately which is a shame though however Mitch mcconnell might take it finally. Listen i have been lobbying. The enemy awards committee for years to put mitch mcconnell And the best minions list. I even sent them a little photoshop picture of mitch. Mcconnell and a cute little minions jumpsuit That was a few years ago but it seems like he might take this year. Listen henry. I'm just hoping the for this year's enemy awards that diversity is kicked up a bit. I was personally hoping for a strong showing from guy in a wheelchair who screamed. What is your problem at me heb. Today i was hoping that he would show up but unfortunately he does not seem to be in the runnings i of wish him. The best and meyer is going through a lot. As we all know with the advent of the emmys there's also the regional emmys. That happened around the same time.
