"executive producer" Discussed on The Energy Gang
"Grow. Power dot com. You were twenty two years old. When as a result of all this podcasting people started calling new the podfather which i love and ask him to take pictures with you at conferences. What is it like to be a celebrity in our industry. Did you ever feel like you had imposter syndrome early on. And if so what was that like i have pictures. That people took That are posted on facebook or like. They're they're buried away somewhere. I always felt like okay. I'm reaching people. But this is kind of niche industry. And i never ever let it get to my head. I mean i've always had perspective on that kind of thing and an i listen. I'm a heavy heavy listener to podcast. So i understand what it means to have a relationship with someone. You listen to all the time so i never let that create an outsized impact on Like how i felt about myself. It was very fulfilling because people would say job in the industry. Because i listened to the show and in i use this information in my job interview or like you help me with my market research. That stuff is so fulfilling and it will always be fulfilling You know what's interesting is that like. I'm kind of have this snitch. Celebrity but it has expanded a bit because like the climate and clean tech world has expanded dramatically over the years so the my presence has changed a little bit but i have never let that impact the mission or made me feel like Too big for my riches le. I've always kept kept it into perspective. Did you face feelings of imposter syndrome early on impostor syndrome. Yes definitely That's that's a big part of the question. So all the time i mean. I have the impostor syndrome in my entrepreneurship journey. Now which we can talk about but early on. I was forced to sound like an expert on topics that i didn't really know much about in the the real art was like trying to figure out how to get enough information so that i sounded smart enough and can hang with people. Who were you know. Truly immersed in this stuff and that that imposter syndrome guided me. It was my real motivation. My into getting better and better I have a great story about ira aaron price. Who's a really famous investor in early on in my career. He they launched like this massive fund and they had invested in tesla. this was in two thousand six Maybe early two thousand seven. And i'm on the phone with him and i'm trying to sound smart and asking questions and he's like do you know how venture capital works like. Let me just tell you like how it actually works. And he wasn't he wasn't being mean or anything. It was just very clear. That like oh. I was a little out of my depth in terms of understanding how the fund worked and everything and So i had moments like that and it made any kind of kicked me down a couple notches but you just use it as your motivation. Your your co hosts on the energy gang ara katherine. Hamilton intrigue is said. What is it like to work with them Given as long as you have worked with them what do you want them to know. Oh they are some of the most delightful collaborators and friends that i've ever had the pleasure of knowing and working with and we truly like each other a truly respect each other. We have a good creative dynamic in that we know our roles on the show and so it makes selecting topics and figuring out the direction of the show very easy and the amount of time and commitment that they've put into it. I mean it requires a lot of their time. And i mean i could not speak highly enough of the dedication that they have also put into the show. So that relationship is truly special They're awesome so. I think the it's a beautiful shout out to them. Two years after launching the energy gain in two thousand fifteen launch the inner change. Shell khan who i think. You perfectly describe as recline of cleantech. How did the interchange come about. And what is it really like working with shell. Someone wrote on linked in the other day that The description of the interchange as the interchanges for those listeners who the energy gang isn't wonky enough and shale really likes to dig into the numbers. He really likes to be thoughtful about having long conversations about that he is thinking about and so he was then the head the vp of research at gtm and we were developing a new show for subscribers only behind the pay wall and that worked well and we experimented with different variations. But we realized that we could. We could expand the audience dramatically and it was probably better financially to monetize the podcast publicly rather than just stick behind a paywall and you have a much smaller audience. So that was the genesis of the show and the the differences that were just we're truly trying to explore In the most fun and wonky way possible some of these big picture decarbonization topics and Shale is just an incredible mind. I mean he has these conversations very often without notes he can just very succinctly talk about topics without seemingly any preparation at all and it's awe inspiring. I mean i cannot do that. I have to have some bullet points. I have to do some reading. I have to kind of prepare my thoughts. Otherwise i'll just derail off and go elsewhere. But he has he just has distinct communication style and he's a dear friend to You know truly a very warm remarkable person. So i'm very lucky. Having co host like that co hosts and friends on those two shows two years ago amid the booming podcasts space you left green tech media to found postscript audio where you surface executive producer of both energy gang and the inner change which are still distributed by green tech media as well as new independent shows like a matter of degrees. How did you decide to take the leap to become an entrepreneur and start postscript audio. Well it's a great time to be a producer because everyone's trying to figure out their audio strategy and media companies are launching podcasts left and right organizations are realizing that the relationships that you create with podcast costs are really strong and so every you know a lot of people are listening to podcast now and they realize how important and valuable they can be so we were just getting a lot of inbound requests requests on. How do i make a show. You know what should i do. What's my strategy m. It was very clear that i had this level of production expertise and management expertise to launch our own production outfit site at that. Same time In the two thousand seventeen to two thousand eighteen timeframe there were dozens and dozens of other small shops like ours popping up many covering different facets different types of topics. And so it. There's a reason for that. And that is because audio is such a booming medium right. now. I really felt like we had certain level of expertise to help launch new shows. I would definitely agree with that. Given our experience with what it takes you decided not to raise capital for postscript audio which is now an eight person team you still only pay yourself a modest seidel solid more than twenty seven thousand dollars. But i still modest. Why did you decide not to raise capital and then what are the biggest challenges that you faced in launching the pot or inland business over the past two years. Well to be perfectly honest. The reason why we haven't raised money is because i think we're still figuring out the business model. We have a very successful process in place. Got some really great shows that i'm proud of but we're still figuring out the exact direction of what the totality of shows that we take on. What is that going to look like The business model is still varied in terms of how we fund shows You know we're still. We are production. Model is very much based on raising budgets and were not Focused a lot on advertising revenue. Right now and so. That can be a bit of a stop start industry. So we're trying to reorient the business to figure out how to get better recurring revenue. How to get some of our shows to even bigger scale And monetize those differently. And so i think in the next year or so were were you know..
"executive producer" Discussed on The Energy Gang
"We're evolving the format to tell their stories in an even deeper way. It's going to be hosted by emily. Kirsch who you here regularly. Conducting these interviews. You can go to whatever podcast app that you're on right now. Search for what it takes. What what it takes and tap that subscribe button and throughout the year. We're going to help inspire and challenge you with a bunch of new chronicles and climate tech entrepreneurship. Okay now with some hesitation and trepidation. Here is emily's conversation with me all right back to you and where you were born. Which is in rural new hampshire. Your mom worked at a steel fabrication plant where she was the only woman in a company Of of men for pretty much her entire time there. She worked her way up from a secretary to general manager to a vice president and manage sixty men while raising you and your brother out. What influence did your parents have on you. Both parents were very influential. My mom definitely gave me the a window into what it was like to be a really hard worker and was a role model for I think a very strong woman and she worked in a male dominated. Industry played A hard nosed manager role and a mother to A lot of steel fabrication workers and worked tirelessly really long hours And it was only really later in life that i realized i picked up a lot of my work ethic from her. So having that as an example Was really influential. My father was a forester and then he went into real estate and so being in the forest. I would go onto property and go. You know. look he would help me name trees and we would run the boundaries of properties in the woods of new hampshire and so that gave me an early exposure to being out in nature constantly so the two of them had very direct roles in my interests and behaviors as a teenager as you described it. You were private lee rebellious which i love that description but also very studious and as you said constantly outdoors. Who was stephen lacey in high school. And what role did movies and the media play in your life at that time while. I'm a typical gemini. So i have two personalities. One is the professional personality that people in school in high school and in college and parents would see. then the other is the more rebellious side So a lot of people are surprised by that when they see me in my natural habitat when the mike isn't to honor not in the classroom. High school was really influential for me. Because that's when i got into filmmaking. I got my first access to cameras. And first exposure script writing 'em we had a small group of people in high school who were really into Making films and doing it very seriously. I mean we look back on them now. And they're not particularly good but we had a management structure in place to actually create things. And we had regular meetings. We would plan them out and so it wasn't us like this fun little thing we would do off in the woods. We were really serious about it. So that early exposure Made me super passionate about media and storytelling pretty early on. It's all it's all coming together. You graduated from franklin pierce university a small university in your home state of new hampshire in two thousand and six with a degree in journalism with a focus in digital media production. You lived with your parents and commuted all four years of college and your peers saw you as very studious and kind of straight edge. was why journalism. And what were your college years like well. I was into the idea of fiction writing and producing films. And i initially went. Because i wanted to get into filmmaking. Franklin pierce had just gotten a massive investment into new digital media center so they had all these huge editing as a lot of access to equipment and they were giving freshman immediate access to that equipment. So i knew i could build something right away but what i realize is that i'm not very good at fiction writing. I'm good at story. Construction and understanding. What makes a good story but ultimately like the creative juices weren't flowing very well. And so i would look back at stuff that i was doing and i wasn't very happy with it but i was really good at talking to people and i was really interested in news and politics from pretty early age and once i realized that like i could draw out other people's stories 'em use those same kinds of techniques to develop nonfiction stories documentary style stories and interviews. That was really when it clicked for me While in college you intern for talk. Radio news service where you covered congressional hearings and white house press briefings. You were only nineteen years old yet. You had a pass to go basically anywhere in congress and you took advantage of it by attending every congressional hearing that you could. You told me that you're most joyous moment of this. Internship was attending the correspondents dinner. What happened at that dinner. And how did this internship at nineteen years old shape your career. I mean it was really the window into everything else that came because they their business model required interns to do all the work so it was really one person who directed an army of interns to gather tape around washington. Dc cut that tape and then send it out to news segments on talk radio stations. And then she would get on at the end of the day or in the morning and talk about what was happening in dc. So i got to go to all sorts of all around congress. I had just free rein anywhere. I wanted to go And i every day was a new assignment. both at think tanks and on capitol hill so I got. I was under pressure to have familiarity with the tech. I had to get the tape right. I had to select the right tape and know how to cut it so that we could send it to the radio stations and then at the end of that internship. I got this opportunity to Attend the white house. Correspondents dinner with the presidential motorcade. So part of my responsibilities was going to the white house. Press briefings gathering tape. They're going down into the tiny little studio in the basement and sending that off During the day that we went to the press briefing the or the white house. Correspondents dinner. i got to sit in the white house all day. Hang around with you know the camera people and the journalists you know many of these folks are real cowboys. They're they're like crusty cowboys who've been there for thirty years and they kind of sit around sharing war stories and chew the so to speak and i got. I got this kind of backstage exposure to how it really works on the media side which was super influential at the end of the day. The presidential motorcade ran up and out runs the white house staff and out runs the press pool and we got in the different cars and george w bush a few cars up from me and we pull up to the hotel and out we run and we're getting into the building we rushed through security and on my right as condoleeza rice and on my left is then white house chief of staff andy card and for me. It was exciting. Because i had exposure to these people with power but i got to see how they're interacting with each other. I got to see how the inside of the process work and it was like. Oh people are just human beings just like anybody else and so it actually took away the luster a little bit in a healthy way And i i think getting exposure to that early on helped me realized like the humanistic people even people in power following graduation in two thousand and six..

Abbianca Makoni, independent producer, on documenting UK women gangs
"You've got the documentary gun. Goals coming out on the first of february corrects. Why don't you stop by just telling us a little bit more about that documentary. And as of what's to come there so this solution-focused documentary samson i essentially spark to those on the front line of this issue so from the grocery charities. Those who training police teaches on also the victim survivors as well. Who go to them are now trying to give back to youth and trying to draw. Young girls On boys out of crime and criminal activity so it just looking at okay. This is the issue this is about is but what is being done and what can be done essentially on dogs we hit Solutions and ideas means by about how we can do. Better essentially lows of questions come to mind of course but it's a constant an easy time to explore this with with what's happening in the world. How did how did covert kind of affect the documentary coming together. It definitely did affect it. Of course with the restrictions are times where we Some point will. I can be able to go and film this We have to via zoom. How we're gonna get you to be able to do the interview by. Luckily we actually started filming a documentary at the start of last year so we started around february and then some of the film was around march so other covid with here in the uk. It wasn't as bad as as it is now and the restrictions one as well as i guess so over the fact that you're a multimedia journalists with the evening standard. The documentary has nothing to do with the evening standard. You chosen to independently while working with sampson followed zone of course as executive producer and editor. Why did you choose to pursue this story in such small numbers. I've always loved broadcast. I guess telling stories visually and particularly on this issue in this area. This is something i. i'm very passionate about reports. Crime in knife crime in the post. But i guess i really wanted to work with someone who i was very familiar with. I've known some simple years now. And i know that this is something he also wanted to explore and again a subject matter a. He's the media with as well. Gt know where he grew up in how he grew up. And i think that's how they came to light before you know what we are too young creatives who have a passion for this issue on something that you know although affects everyone it also affects our community will. Let's do it. let's get up. Let's see what we can do together and bring the topic back into the limelight. Could you have explored this with the evening standard. Like with your day job if you wanted to. I definitely think so. I mean the evening star. They have an amazing video team. That i'm sure would have been able to do an amazing job With this project. But i think again with everything happening nineteen and then with politics brexit the us. They just so much attention going in different areas. Where i think. That's another thing. Which i guess i thought about and i thought you know what the news extremely busy right now. I'll with so many different things. This is something that i can. I guess also do on my own. I think i've mentioned. I am a self usa so with some of the videos i did self she on my own which meant that. It did allow me to do not depend on too many people so that the project could actually happen and we didn't have the delays columbine easy doing this in what must be limited spare time you you mentioned. Start to get the star of last year. Journalists are obviously well known for boehner. The candle at both ends taught me about is a honestly. I was always tired. Because of course idea what i was using my weekends saw straight off to my shift then like sailed all night. It's absolutely crazy but again when you are passionate about something when attacking very sensitive sore you're gonna give it your all and i think janice ala's walled anyway so staying up too late. It wasn't anything new to me. But again because i knew that a lot of these victims of i was saying like look. You know we've been trying to get this more in alignment they so many things you want to talk about the also about how cova has exacerbated a few of the issue so the fact that you're doing this really grateful and just hearing those things as well it does make you wanna keep pushing And using your free time to ensure that the project does get done so but it was definitely odd. It was a Walking basically seven days a week basically. But yeah i can see your passion warrants this story so close to home. While few years. I did leave the frightened to knife crime and i guess you know the issue of knife crime itself. It's something that is definitely a meeting the a whole just london but i think some people until it gets close to home. That's when you really realize how bad it is. I guess Lost my friends. I thought he just meant wearing a few young people in getting involved. more youth committees workshops. Basically trying to help Those that might be out of education all at high risk of gang life. And i guess when your communicates me about some of these children. You're hearing that going through in your hearing what they see on a day to day basis and it is one young man who was fifteen at the time who told me that he seen people get stopped in the face. And you're thinking so young and you've just experienced the west thing. So i think that is what has i guess. Giving me this passion and this is to ensure that we all highlighting some of the issues around crime as a whole and how. It's affecting young people in particular more condolences. Ibm i'm sorry to hear about fine. Listen this is a topic clearly. With a lot of sensitivities and considerations going in in a broader sense we've seen this trend of journalists going independent albeit on their own publications. And that's not specifically what you're doing here. But when i've spoken to them they've said that you know i wouldn't want to do something to in depth investigative because i don't have the the gut check that comes with perhaps a full editorial tame. Did you think about that going in that having such small numbers when you are going to be exploring something so sensitive and and ethically challenging of course i think a lot of my friends at his friends are very supportive throughout this whole I guess process while i was continuously checking in on them. And if i ever had any question it was like okay. You know what. I'm doing this documentary and know how to go about this and how to go about that and i think With some of the country the documentary. I'd watch them previously anyway. Whether it was like a youth event so there was a lot of trust that had been built. Because again added john honest. I try to be well connected with a guest different communities us that when you saw stopped topics they know they can trust you if they ever have a question or a query. They're very quick to tell you. Well how are you going to do this in high do that. Don't shy away from also challenging you and ask you how you're going to go outside and

"Ferrell is an executive producer of the new. Bg documentary called the bg's. How can you mend a broken heart on. Hbo and he's also the president of white horse. Welcome to the show. Thank you first of all loved every second of the documentary of singing to myself reflecting on the days of roller skating in the basement of many of these hits raised by mom crazy about the. Bg's did you know as much about the bg's before this project or was this all like totally new to you. Well that makes me very happy is exactly what we wanted onto this project for. Come out at this time of the year and it's just been so much fun to see how many people found some joy out of it so that makes it very happy I you know i didn't. I went into this one with the sort of basic knowledge. Like probably your average person's thinking saturday night fever and you know not really knowing all that much more new. Their brothers now is about it So this whole project has been a complete discovery. It's it took us three years to put together so I've learned a lot along the way and then you were able to get so many great musicians to give their insight. Were you surprised by the amount of very famous talented musicians that were as big fans of the bg's we were. But but only for a moment. Because i think you know one of the things. I learned quickly is that yes particularly berry. he's a complete master. Songwriting and i think musicians understand you know they understand what it takes to write one beautiful song and berry. They compose almost a thousand tracks of the three brothers over fifty years. So i think You know inherently a songwriter connects with that. And we've this is probably the the most sort of celebrity musicians that wanted to be a part of this project. Everybody said yes just in has been incredible. He's supported the project on twitter. He's he did a great interview. he's just It's been it's been a thrill. Tell me a little bit about some of the back stories of the songs. I loved that part of the documentary. Hearing just the the this small details of a part of the song and how it track to something that was special to the brothers or even the story about night fever and how the musicians were able to make the most emblematic part of song. The most famous part of the song just In studio without their help so what was like some of the back stories that you found to be the most interesting. The the first interview we did was Capitol records in studio a with All be gluten and call richardson. And that's where they create recreated the The tape loop from staying alive that was completely mind blowing You know i knew that. They were instrumental and tape loops. And and even from our beatles days you know. John lennon had actually played around tapes in a more abstract way before. But i had no idea that that was the basis for the record in the completely change. The shape of music So that that that one can that once stood out to me it also. Is you know understanding that. They wrote in the studio And the spontaneity of their writing with something. I had knew nothing about You know the first story we tell is is the new york mining disaster and how the blackout in the studio sparks. That entire song Just out of nothing chris. Martin talks about this film as well. They're receiving these songs you know fishermen don't make the fish They they received them. They catch them and and berry actually in an entirely different interview thirty years beforehand on david. Frost said exactly the same thing. It was almost eerie. He said that we received these almost like signals in the sky. And we pull them down and they'd just materialize which is Is really. It's getting sort of gives you chills. Tell everybody the story about when they were in the french chateau writing the love song. And how the one producer starts to become overcome with emotion while talking about his work. yeah blue blue weaver. was you know when you start these projects. You don't know which interviews in which witnesses are going to stand down and you know as someone who didn't know all that much about the bg starting out know blue. Weaver was just the name on a page but once we got his interview back He was so instrumental And you know writing. Deep is your love and that moment's that's berry You know seen seen it come back to him you know was it was just is incredibly powerful And knowing that that they did this in a vacuum you know they're in the chateau in the middle of france. They had no idea what saturday night fever was. They didn't read the script to the To the project that that roberts stick with them they were just writing their new album. That had no idea what they were about to create And they basically stick would came to tiberan and said i want you to write the greatest love song The world has ever known because he wants to promote the film with this single start. And and barry and blue just went went to it and we actually discovered i think blue actually discovered in his own personal archives that tape that replay The film which is the writing sessions. Those are the raw writing sessions that.

"Tau this really real and raw conversation And i think you nailed it like it. Really is I think people can watch it and relate and other people can just be like. I don't know how they can Can they actually succeed as a couple with despair. Your and that is what i think so. Brilliant about the shovel and an. I'm always so grateful to everybody. That participates to to really like where their harness leaves them vulnerable and open up. And you know we're on this for ninety day on like Ticking clock journey with them right and ninety days in like literally were. Were watching them to see what happens. And if If it doesn't work out they go back to their country and and it is just so it's just so real and An emotional and it's It just i. It goes back to just being so grateful for people to let us follow them. So give me a little bit of an update on some of these people. So like josh alexandra. He was the mormon he meets this. Go go dancer in like the ukraine again and other couple of your like. What's i think i read that. He's a resident. isn't he went to medical school. I remember when he when we were shooting him. Yeah he was going to school and that was his goal. so i. I'm not sure today. Where where they stand but good for him if if he if he made it. That's awesome mark and nicky mark was much older. It seemed like he was in marion basically an an upgraded version of his first wife. He even chose someone from the same village and his kids. Were not happy with it. I'm sure this is a story that's told many times Maybe even you know different parts of the world where there's a man who finds a woman in another country and the families like the age difference the cultural difference. What are you doing so when you look back at that couple. What comes to mind. They definitely had hurdles. And like you said daughters. Civic me was not fully on board You know the family dynamics. I think that's always so interesting right. Like sitting. how not only as a couple navigating their own love story with then there are these people surrounding then that are sometimes yelling. What are you doing or do not see the writing on the wall or or you know over the intentions and whatnot. And so it's it's It's complicated right. Comp located then you have a bunch of more recent couples and some of them i just think they must be such a headache to deal with because they're such a headache to one another so with that clock. Ticking down. i'm imagining the pressure. That you have on behind the scenes because we see it in the faces of the couple and of their immediate family and friends who are wondering if this couple's even going to make it so for a couple like danielle and mohammed or angela and michael. What is the stress like for the crew. Filming these couples with this. You know the clock. Ticking down you think that it's just for myself with when you're saying stress. I mean i i'm also incredibly invested in everybody's story and so even with somebody like darcy you know i'm sitting there hoping for the best and you know stressed at every hurdle or like cheering for joy. Something wonderful happen. So i think it's kind of case by case so colton larisa when you met them. Do you say anything to them like. This might not go so well or do you. Just let it play out like. Do you ever get involved behind the scenes any of the producers and say you might wanna think about the way communicate or does it really make sense if you guys live here or maybe you shouldn't have your mother so involved do they ever cross that line and just say like heads up do they. Is there any involvement at all. I mean it's very much fly on the wall type of docu. You know docu series where Again is there. Is this natural. Ticking clock There there were were on the ride with them and so I think that we're we're on a journey and we're letting it all of shake out and at times we are. No it truly is a very much flying law. So how do you find some of these couples. Because i'm guessing that there are probably some chat rooms forums that you came in contact with some of the earlier couples but time has the casting changed at all. Is it still. You're looking through. Forums of people that are seeking information about how to expedite the process of dating somebody in another country in the k. One be surprised us. It's variety different things that Sharp the production company you know with their casting process where he two different and and the things you mentioned. How far into the do you go in terms of background checks. Do you have like a fleet of people that are like internet. Experts like people who run security checks for the government. What kind of. I mean there. There are people that are coming from every pocket of the world and sometimes even the ones that are. The americans seem to have just very odd pass. How far do you have to go into their background yet. The background checks. We take very very seriously and we introduce them for both the domestic and international and it's a process and we're we're always keeping everybody safe safety in mind in like i said we'd stick seriously what about in terms of love versus fame so as the show has gotten bigger and bigger and bigger. I mean is really like an international hit. Do you ever have concerns. as we do. As viewers that some of the couples that may be part of the couple or the couple combined have ulterior motives to use the show as a platform for fame or to promote a business and not the authentic sweet. Love story that you know. Sometimes they were. it seems like in the beginning seasons. They were often these sweet love stories and then some of us is view. I wonder if there are people that have been in the most recent seasons. That seems so taken with fame. Is it because the cameras turn on and sometimes people almost compromised or art. Do you have a system for kind of weeding people.

"Welcome back to another episode of reality life with. Casey hope that you had ingrate weekend. I found a great new show and it made my weekend. I binged it was so good. It's called the house of ho. It's on hbo. Max and i think that this is like one of the big hits of the year. It's about this really wealthy vietnamese family in houston texas. They've got a controlling died. A really difficult mom. Three kids oldest is daughter. Judy and they have two sons. Washington and reagan and all of the grandchildren have the names of us presidents because it's an homage by the father to america because he had such great lock once he moved here. So it's got lots of layers. All the relationships are interesting. They have an aunt named tina. Who is the drunk relative at everyone's family table at the holidays. Who just curses and says what everybody else is thinking. It's great. you're really going to have a good time watching it. And i interviewed three of them. That will be on episode friday. I'm telling you sleeper hit. You gotta watch it. I also watched the hbo documentary on the bg's totally fell in love with that one. And i tracked down one of the executive producers because they had to ask them about it was so good this episode. I'm really excited about. Because gabriella taco bali has been Somebody that i wanted to interview for quite some time. She is the vice president of production at tlc. An executive producer of ninety day. Fiance's of course is the show where they follow international couples as they attempt to overcome cultural barriers and family drama. While in search of this true love. That obviously has no borders. So it's like a unique look into the world of international dating matrimony because you have an american and a foreigner and the foreigners family is probably their families just as concerned as the american family but the best part is there's this ninety day period of time in the us with a k. One visa so the the foreigner to basically get married or leave the country after ninety days. So it's like the clock is ticking down on the episode because they have to decide whether or not they're going to get married and you just never know what's going to happen so over the years. I've just gotten such a kick out of some of these couples and these are some of my favorites. There was chelsea and amir mir was twenty eight and from nicaragua and chelsea was twenty five from this tiny town in illinois called galesburg so they meet nicaragua she was volunteering and he was a member of this nicaraguan boy band and he was sort of stock. Because the manager of the ban was like you can't go to the united states and get married because we have a dream here and you're going to break that dream and what. Why are you throwing it all away. So of course he decides to get married to chelsea moves to the us and the end up living in her parents basement and this again little tiny town in illinois and at one point he goes to chicago to meet with a record producer and he can barely speak english. And you're just like this is such a movie that seth rogan would come up with like. It's just too funny another couple. That was fascinating to watch. Danny and amy dating was twenty three and from norristown pennsylvania. Which is right outside of philly and amy twenty-one from capetown south africa so they met while they were in australia on a bible study trip fell in love got engaged so when amy comes to america she ends up living with danny's brother for the ninety days because they wanted to remain virgins until they wed so the real crux though was that danny's father was basically openly racist and initially objected to the marriage. Because amy was not white so the clock is ticking down and you're just wondering are they going to be able to withstand the pressure that comes with wanting his father to come around the idea of him not marrying someone who's white so that was a fascinating story to watch Another was mark nikki. Marquis fifty eight from baltimore. Maryland and nikki was only nineteen years older nineteen years old from the philippines. What was interesting is like i think his first wife whom he had four children with obviously at a bad divorce i think she was from the same village in the philippines. They met on some online dating service. You're like is this a mail order bride kind of situation. He owned a concert piano rental business. So i knew means like this wealthy wealthy man but this young girl comes over and at one point. I think he had her alphabetizing books very odd relationship and his one daughter was so so disgusted by relationship and was very open about it. You're just like are these two even gonna make it and then the last one that i was absolutely fascinated by and continue to be One couple so josh was twenty. Two and from rexburg idaho. Will we all know that rexburg is the same town where those children went missing this year. So very small town and he was mormon and alexandra was twenty one and from kirov russia They met in prague when she was a student there and she was initially an atheist and then converted to mormonism and before she converted she was employed as a gogo dancer at a club and love to drink and party and then she meets him and then she converts. And you're like what. He's from rexburg idaho and he wants to be a doctor and he meets this. Go go dancer. what so. that's why i love that show because it's these people that are coming from different pockets of the world and you wanna see their story unfold so i wanted to talk to her about the casting and some of the pines the scenes of the show. It's obviously become a huge huge hit and just very interesting to catch up with her. And then of course. I interviewed nick. Farrell is the executive producer of the. Bg's documentary which. I mentioned it's called. How can you mend a broken heart on. Hbo and it chronicles triumphs and hurdles of three brothers. Berry morris and robin gibb otherwise known as the bg's and if i'm saying their name you're like the bee gees. I promise you. There are a multitude of songs that will immediately make you realize that they are huge superstars. Because they're responsible for so many huge hits in fact. They wrote the whole soundtrack to saturday night. Lot or saturday night fever. Excuse me Which john travolta starred in so they found early fame the nineteen sixties there from australia and they went on to move to london in nineteen sixty seven right over a thousand songs and had twenty number one hits throughout their careers transcending more than five decades of changing tastes and styles which is pretty unbelievable. So this film. Is this intimate exploration of the gibbs story featuring revealing interviews with the oldest brother an archival interviews with the late twin brothers robert morris so the film features never before seen archival footage of recording sessions concert performances. Tv appearances and my favorite. Which are the home videos as well as interviews with musicians including eric clapton. Noel gallagher nick. Jonas chris martin justin timberlake and music producer. Mark ronson It's just this great behind the story of this incredible band and some of the stories behind the music are really really interesting. Like the clicky clack of their car. Driving across the biscane bay bridge to criteria recording studios in miami inspired the opening sequence in jive talkin. If you remember that song like they look. It's from. They've just driving over the bridge. That was where that concept came from. And how they created the drum loop for staying alive and then of course. There's the personal stories behind it To as i mentioned have passed on and then they had another younger brother. Andy andy was like the hottest thing he was on the cover of all the bop magazine of the time and he was gorgeous and he died at age thirty in nineteen eighty eight from drug addiction and there were moments where he would come onstage. Sing with them he had. He had his own singing career and just to hear the loss. I of andy and then the surviving brother talking about how all of his brothers had passed on. And if you love music even if you don't love music. Because i'm not somebody who's like always like listening to music in my house. I love the personal stories. And that's why it's such a great great documentary. So i want you to make sure you watch that too. So this episode is gabriella from ninety day. Fiance and nick who was executive producer of the hbo documentary. So here we go gabriella..

"Was like it was like The Truman Show at that stage that it was a subdivision big subdivision, you know, the planning a building like, you know, 15,000 houses there or something and it's pretty much all built out now, it's huge. And yeah now I remember, you know, having my fourth and sort of fifth birthday party there we lived in a not gated community, but in the center of community was a club house and a swimming pool and a tennis court and it was just like wage. Just new age for that time wasn't like, you know, it was North Oakland. So it wasn't expensive it's expensive now because house prices are exorbitant out there. We were just having a chat off there about about property before and wage. Like, you know Oakland like Sydney, it's terrible. It's ridiculous. But yeah that my memory is is of my childhood. Basically, you know every day after school would go to the pool and play at the pool with all the other way or the other all the other kids from around and if your parent wasn't there to supervise you then one neighbor would complain to the other and yeah, I ended up I up that little Community had long-term loans to my and my grandfather used to his he was we call him father he and he used to know that with his right on Lamar get paid for it. Then he handed it to my older brother when he couldn't do it anymore. And then when my brother left school he handed it to me.

So of course, I was the one whenever I was at maccas with my mates going to get a cheese. Yeah Marsha that that is very funny.

As I said, spoke to old man, but there was three that stood out as potential icebreakers home will get into poly pooping on the floor a little bit later. But what's this story about you being a child TV star some pie commercial? Oh, yeah. Yeah. Well one of my dad's could mate owned a dead a high by the way, and thanks for having me on one of my dad's good mates owned a pie business, I guess and it was quite a large one and he was getting into wage obviously need to start advertising and so he stopped advertising on like a Christian TV station back in it said was called Family TV.

"With Casey. I'm hoping that you saw the show the bachelor presents. Listen to your heart. It's basically like the bachelor and the voice put together. In fact I think the contestants are either rejects from American idol voice etc and the Bachelor Bachelorette. I think it's like people who during the process of auditioning mentioned perhaps that they can play the spoons or the harmonica or that they have been a singer in some capacity school production and that the people from the show called them and said you know what we didn't think you were right for the Clare. Cawley Susan season or that. You would ever have a chance with pilot the Pete but we do think that you'd be great for this other train wreck that we're making. This is a show where twenty people are living in a mansion. They it's much bigger than the bachelor mansion because you can't conceive. Lee Put men and women in bunk beds in a small amount of rooms in a house. I mean it would be funny if it was like the challenge. But they don't even know each other so probably. There would be some legal issues if you didn't provide at least the with their own room so they're there for two hours. I mean it's the break the fourth wall and the minute on TV within two hours. They've disrobed from the outfit that the award in to introduce themselves to Chris Harrison outside the mansion and of course it's hose down the driveway just like the bachelor and They've said God I've been here for two hours here. I am already in the hot tub. They're making out with a stranger two hours later. The best part about it is you can only stay on the show if you're in a couple and this is their only chance to become the music stars that they believed themselves to be so they are willing to pretend that they're interested in someone and performed dumb songs for them with the hope that they can stay on the show so it's pretty good to watch because it's a disaster but in the best way and apparently by the end of it they have to perform for former bachelor nation people who were judging them which. I Find Hilarious. Like it's not even like a panel of judges with that have like you know accreditation. It's people that are criticizing you on your eyebrow movement and how like what your outfit look like when you sang the song so this is definitely not a show if you're if you have a degree from like Berkeley School of Music or Curtis School of Music. Because you'll slam your head against a wall but if you want a show about people who are making terrible decisions when it comes to love scene love ballads outfits. This is up your alley. The funniest thing is after a watch this. I watched another show called Song Land. Now this is a real show about real artists and this is the show to watch this week. So basically the whole point of the show is to discover songwriters so they pitch their original creations to superstar recording artists and a panel of chart topping music producers because they wanna have a career songwriters like a great music collaboration so they pair each songwriter with one of the three producers. Who are the panel of Judges? So that judges are Grammy Winner. Ryan Tetter for one republic. Grammy Nominated Ester Dean. She's written hits for Riana and Katy Perry and and this Guy Shane. Who IS THIS COUNTRY? Music icon with over forty number one records and country and to say it's pretty fascinating because you get to see that how they tweak a song and by the end event all three finalists have songs that you actually. WanNa listen to one of the songs I. It's been like two days now. I can't get it out of my head so if you love shows about music even if you don't I gotta be honest with you. I Know Jack Squat amount music. I don't even really care about music. I love this show. I thought it was the best show on TV this week. I'm also going to watch a show. That's on Friday. It's called too hot to handle and there's a ton of buzz about this. It's going to be on that flex and show produced by Fremantle and it consists of eight episodes and it's people that are too hot For their own. Good just like banging bodies so attractive. And they're gonNA win the chance to win. They're gonNA. They had the chance to win. One hundred thousand dollars but the kicker is they can't make out they can have sex with any money while they're stuck in this like Prison Studio prison. You know it's kind of like one of those love island kind of situations. It's like you're going to be surrounded by Super Hot people but you cannot make out with anybody some excited to watch because I think people go about shit crazy when they're really good looking and they're around other really good looking people enter on television. Now my episode this week this episode has what my favorite. Gus of all time. I've been dying to talk for a long time because she is such a big hitmaker. Tv and she's got the best personality is he. Picked Bar is responsible for bringing dancing with the stars to the US. She created ladies of London which is one of my favorite shows of all time and most importantly she is the person at.
"executive producer" Discussed on Phil in the Blanks
"For this career. I wanted to learn how to write stories and go out in the field so I would wait after hours and I would pull scripts out of the garbage. Five approved every shot of that. Show every shot dislike you do now. I still do starting at four fifty sites. Tell you if you knew nineteen years ago what you know now. Would you have taken this job? Okay well you're on fill in the blanks and this is a very special week for me. Because I'm getting the interview a very special person now. People always wonder really what goes on behind the scenes. What makes the Dr Phil? Show the Dr Phil Show. What makes it tick what goes into putting the show together and I've always said only half jokingly that I have this knack forgetting these gigs where somebody does all the work and I get all the credit and I'm really not joking when I say that and my guest today is going to be proof of that because for the first time ever on fill in the blanks? I'm talking to Karla Pennington. Now if you don't know let me tell you who Carl Pennington is. Carla is the executive producer of Dr Phil. That means she is the boss of the show. Everybody works for her including me all the staff. Everybody like two three hundred people. She's also the executive producer of the doctors. She's done other shows. She's executive producer of Daily Mail TV. She's involved in all of the shows that I do she's involved in Bowl sees involved in shows that we have right now one going on. Cbs All access has to do with animal rescue. That we're working on. She's working on a that. We're doing for the network right now. Just all kinds of things. She has as many balls in the air as I do. And she is a single mother of twins. We'll talk about that in a minute. But she is the executive producer of all of these shows. And we're GonNa talk about your background who she is and what's going on. So THAT'S CARLA PENNINGTON. So thanks for sitting down and doing this of course. I was shocked that you wanted to talk to me since she talked to me every day every day but nobody else does not get all these questions about you. Know how does the show come together and what goes on to make it happen in all and so I wanted to really answer that in a substantive way because most new shows start with one executive producer that doesn't survive the first year. I think I've seen statistic like it's eighty seven percent of the time if a show survives which usually doesn't right but if it does the executive producer doesn't survive because they either say. I've had all this. I want and go away or changes are made and so they bring in the second flight of people and executive producer. This doesn't survive. But I've had one executive producer and that you were eighteen season. You've been here for nineteen years because you're the first person brought on board and you built the entire staff for the Dr Phil Show Right. That's true so it was two thousand to tell the story about how I was hired so I think you should was painful. Ladies and gentlemen credibly painful. Though it was a it was a long process so I was working at entertainment tonight at the time. And one of the execs came to me and said would you be interested in working on a Dr Phil Show we? We were able to get Dr Phil. Apparently people were after you. The were yes and I said who just kidding. Just kidding yes and you know I hadn't interviewed for a job in many many years didn't even a fresh resume and so I quickly did that and I flew to Chicago Roy and walked into a very intimidating room. It was Oprah Oprah'S EP and about three paramount executives. You which can be intimidating in and of itself and terrible. I was terrible. I gave the public the worst interview of my career. Why did you say that I was rambling and babbling? I don't even remember what I've said we've always done but I remember there was a woman coming down the stairs as I was coming up the stairs and she was the one after my job. Of course Terry would made the mistake of saying Oh. She gave a really good interview which was really want. You WanNa tell me that. Thanks so that was that interview and then then I think I made the first. Obviously I've made the first cut and then I was flown to to Dallas Roy. I met Robin and I got a tour of CSI which is now based on your show. Bull Roy walked around there and then I think so that was down to the second round and then I didn't hear anything for Asia's really hello wasn't my God months really. Yeah I kind of forgot about it. I went on about my business and I was. You know raising my kids and they were like eighteen months at the time or something like that and then I got a call. I was At the park it was like six. Pm I got up early for entertainment tonight so I was already done for the day. And and UH Terry would called and said Phil wants to talk to you again and I said well. What else does that man needs.

"My name is Antonio Producer. squawk box I've been with squawk box since two thousand five and we hear your voice a lot in the podcast. Yes so when people ask me what I do. I often say that I direct traffic. Let's go teasing next. Keep the train on the tracks so unfortunately I think sometimes that means that I'm the annoying one that keeps saying okay. That's enough time to move it or lose it. Sometimes we have guests that call into to the show and one of the jobs that you do is being the greeter. I'm thinking of two particular guests I called in this year so I love answering the phone in the control room. It's true and many any days feel producers and reporters but hands down our two. Most famous call in guests are Warren Buffett and president trump. I was totally thinking about Kris. Jenner Oh my also Kris Jenner. Thank you this is true. Chris thank you for calling in this morning thank you. I don't know who I was most nervous for the to speak to the phone. Crass President Trump's phone on call to squawk box earlier this year was a fairly singular segment originating when he wanted to respond to an appearance by the head of international affairs at the Chamber of Commerce. That's the largest it's lobby group for. US businesses tell me about that day because this was not something that we booked in advance. No it wasn't. We had a trade representative by the name of Myron brilliant booked in the a block and interestingly enough as he was almost cancelled the guests that we originally had booked couldn't get to the studio because of a snowstorm. I believe in Colorado a spring snowstorm. Something something freak soya's now for more myron brilliant. They had him on and he did his thing. And apparently the president was watching and texted. Joe In the middle of the conversation at Joe Walked off set and came into the control room and said all right. Let's do this and handed the phone. I said WHO's at. He goes to the United States work. So it's like hi Mr President how are you so how exactly do you want to do this. Just give you the number then. I got very nervous. I thought I might give them the wrong control number and then he said okay promoted make it big. I'M GONNA call in ten minutes visser president. Are you with us. I am with you. I guess Mr Brilliant Who was from the Chamber of Commerce? And you've got to see a part of that interview. Uh well I guess he's not so brilliant to me. I think that is the president's best media Joe Mbeki rolled with it and they were they were fantastic. Thank you very much such great easy. So bad that squawk pod for this first day of twenty twenty.

"That's where you. The Justice Department is increasingly focusing. And I'm not sure that they're out of touch with the American public when they're asking the broader questions about the implications of technology. Do you still. You tweeted out some favorable things. A you're not part of the Business Roundtable. You were favorable unfavorable about some of the new I don't know what they were I guess they were guidelines. I'm not I guess I wasn't solely virtually signaling. Although a lot of it was fashion statement. Yeah Mission Statement. Ah Was Milton. Friedman wrong that that That enhancing shareholder value kind of trickles down and takes care of a lot of different different issues. And you may not necessarily have to specifically say I'm going to be a good person. I mean you you stay within the law you satisfied customers you expand and your employee base shareholders benefit. You're doing exactly what you're supposed to do. You need to say you need to think about other things that if if you don't say that to shareholder value actually end up hurting someone well I think the Business Roundtable has really defined the issue correctly for the twenty-first century entry. Why because what they say is focused on customers? I take care of your employees be good stored from enhancing shareholder value though but I would argue that the opposite is even a better strategy. Take care of customers. I and in the long term. Okay I share it very very well and I would almost argue if you look at Microsoft. Look at what we've done over the last five or six years we've we've sued the United States government in two different administrations. I thought we needed to to protect customers or would you get bloated tech companies. I get bloated world enters a slowdown. You fire nobody. You don't tighten your belt. You're not profitable anymore. Everybody ends up having Ajab and when you were thinking only about your your employees in your unable to do some of the really tough things rationalize business that you why. Why won't that happen? But I think the point you're making is in good idea taken too far ends up creating problems and you think shareholder value and chasing that has been taken too so far. No okay. What I'm saying is look of course if you say that we're going to take care of our employees but never restructure the company? We're never gonNA let anybody go. That's not a sensible somebody for balance or someone somewhere else soon. You'RE GONNA end up. Okay let's do the privacy thing so we were talking. I I'M NOT GONNA add up the market caps APPs of all the companies that have stolen my data. But I don't believe freely give it to him and I'm fine should I am. I don't answer this but I'm a a sucker that I as I am but I love Google. Take everything I don't have any really nothing that interesting for me. I don't think but should I have demanded mandated more compensation for all this information that advertisers are getting about me. Well I think the first thing we need to do is equipped people with the knowledge. About how much data there is is about them empower them so they can make more decisions. I think interestingly maybe even ironically the leader in empowering people with knowledge about their data is the European -pinion when Leeds law from a year and a half ago. But we're the one company that said we're going to extend those benefits those rights to all of our customers everywhere in the world. Because we I do think that people have the right to know what data we have about them regardless of where they live will I think benefit if the market goes to work if there are more more opportunities for people to use their indifferently. EU did something. That's like what is it. The blind Kernel corn. How does that anyway so they actually? That's good anyway. We're out of time. That went fast. It sure did thank you. You know what I'm thinking. I might read Your Book Hope You well. We wrote it so that it would be fun to read. That was one of our goals. The the book again as tools and weapons the promise in the peril of the digital age. Brad Smith is the president of Microsoft. And thank you for your time. Thank you squawk pot. We'll be right right that. You're listening to Squawk pod finally today. We're doing something a little little different to introduce you to some of our team a little bit down one two three four. Who Work with Joe Becky and Andrew? Everyday I'm Max expires and I am the executive producer of Squawk box. I oversee probably the most influential show and all of Cable News.

It is driving the election and is explaining many of the choices that we are making in this Upcoming.
"executive producer" Discussed on Reality Life with Kate Casey
"A horse and we were take that he would just fall right off and so we had him ride like the tiniest distance on my the oldest force could find. I mean you're so you're saying it and I absolutely remember but I think that the part of that you're totally right. It was almost like a ROM com because he seemed so funny. Johny the whole thing just seemed like absolutely hilarious. How were you able to find women to cast because when this show came about it was way before you had contestants that were really about you know? Obviously growing their instagram fame. And we're really savvy to the entertainment industry three. So how were you able to find. Women like the two finalists who really felt like. They were plucked from obscurity and had normal jobs. Well they they really were plucked from obscurity. I mean you're absolutely right. This was you know bachelor had an on for one season this genre was in its infancy and you you know there was. There was no sort of comedy trope of. I'm not here to make friends. The girls were all over the place like some of the girls were there to get famous. I mean there were a lot of times. We had cut out conversations where they talked about which morning shows that they wanted to be on the show. Oh my really At yeah even back then. We're like this is GonNa launch me and there were other girls. Were just genuinely there to have denture. you know. I can't say any of them more so naive that they really thought that they fall in love but but it was a much different time. They weren't sort of J. as jaded and cynical As they are now and much more innocent did they. Were there situations that you had to cut out out while you were filming where someone was starting to question whether or not he was legitimately from this wealthy family. Well they never questioned whether or not. He was from a wealthy family but a lot of some didn't like him very much. That was what we had to cut around like. Evan wasn't particularly charming with the girls. He wasn't really that interested in them. I'm not saying that he didn't like women but you know he just didn't care that much he wasn't really there to find love and there were times where I would say like Evan. Just go to dinner with this woman afterwards. I'll let you have a pizza party with these guys and it'd be like okay do it. Yeah and you know the girls could sense mm fat he you know. He wasn't romancing that he was sort of phoning it in and he wasn't sophisticated and he wasn't charming and they for the most part they were not smitten with him and and so we had to cut around a lot of that. Like you like Evan. I don't really do you do You know so but part of what you do on those shows and now the people who who have made these shows for these last years have announced with science and we were just learning and at the time as you know once you cut off all contacts with the outside world you know you you you create this really unreal environment and so these. These contestants live in this bubble Play up constantly this idea that he is amazing and I would interview the girls constantly. You know on camera and I would just say things like Oh my God. You're so lucky to get be getting to meet him. He's so amazing isn't he. And you know all the producers we constantly were were playing up. How terrific? Evan was and you know you. Don't you're not reading a newspaper these girls you see TV. You're not reading the Internet. You can talk to your family. And so you know the idea on these shows is that you create this this really sort of surreal the environment where the contestants are to believe that Success Equals winning this thing. I mean I'm sure a lot of other producers talk to you about that you know. There's there's a real kind of Method to it we were doing in the dark. We were figuring it out. I've never done a show like this and We were just kind out of bumbling through it. How often were the women sort of processing that like? I don't really like this guy but I know this is a great opportunity the need for me. How can I stay in this game? Can I make it through. Because I know in the end it will propel me somewhere. Did you get get a sense that there were a lot of women that were kind of caught in that spot and if so how did you kind of keep them on course because in the end you really want somebody study to be at the end of this thinking that they want to be with him. Yeah absolutely I think it's human nature or you know as the field gets whittled down the people who are still there get more and more into it. Yeah so you see it on all these shows you know they might start Out there like no I just signed up for this and then when they think that they have a chance of winning they take it more and more seriously so as the field narrowed down it it get get it becomes very very serious girls. I think I mean listen. It was a long time ago But you know they offered to take it a lot more seriously. Do you think that there were women that were let go and thought thank God i. I'm glad I didn't have to be in the end of this and have to make a real decision. Oh I think so I think so I mean he. He was not a delight to be around. And you know. You're sorry Evan. If you're listening to this but I don't think he'll argue with me. That was not the best forty days of your life. And you know you're in this castle in the middle look nowhere and like the castle like not beautiful inside like it was a lot et cetera. Thing and you don't really get to do anything until we take you out on a date with him and so it's really boring And so I think a lot of them were like. Oh finally but of course you don't let them leave because they were going to go home and the a lot of you know there's a lot of nondisclosures and that's a whole oh simple thing But yes I think I think there were plenty of girls who were like. Get me out here for sure. So let's talk about the physical part of the show show like the actual making out no of course runner up. Sarah closer received notoriety when the media reported that during the course of the show she had appeared in bondage videos while while attending law school. I'm sure none of you knew that beforehand Or I'm assuming that you didn't know that beforehand and then there was a scene from the show that implied that they had had kind of made out heavy on a walk together and she claim that nothing actually happened so so two things It was foot fetish videos to make it even more salacious That that she was found to have don and no we had no idea right like Google it. You just wasn't that easy to find all this stuff out about people and we found out in the process when the press revealed revealed it So about that scene in the woods it was funny. I was at a discovery. You know the channel Discovery Big Producers Party a couple of years ago and This reporter came up to me and said Ed I said I'm Liz Bronstein and he. He introduced himself and I introduced myself and he said I know who you are. I have two questions for you. He's like I and he brought up the scene from jockeys which was so obscure and he figured out the tiniest cheat that we had done in a race. Where like you know jockey hadn't been in the race and we had implied imply the jockey was in the race and and I was like you're right? I mean you notice that you're absolutely right that that was a bit of achieve and then he said and I got I didn't know about the scene in the woods is also eighteen years ago like I've got no so here's the deal with seen in the woods. I kept saying to all of them to Evan. And all of the women do not run away from us. Do not take your microphones off like you guys all signed up for this like you know you're in this with us like when you let us film things then we see the reality but if you run away then you know. We don't know what happened so just don't do it and of course they did it But they forgot to take their mics off. So there's so thrilled that they managed to outrun. You know cameramen looking gigantic cameras. But we still have their mikes so you know it was this thing where at the time fine. We will really bummed out like I can remember being in the control room and it was this big crisis and evidence. Sarah lost the cameraman or like. Oh my God going to do. And he's going to be a great scene and we were all really glum and you had to give them a talking to and And then we were at it and you know here we have the the shot where they they run away from the cameraman and you see them disappear into the woods and and then audio just kept playing and I was like like wait. I've got play. Wait what what I was like you guys. Let's just lower this audio If we're doing a ROM com and we were You Know Hell. Let's whatever we think we're hearing let's just lower third at your probably excited because other point no one really wanted to make out with them so it's probably like finally someone's actually into the sky we we gotta show now exactly so I was the juiciest pick up for sure so we ended up choosing this woman named Zora now. Oh she seemed like snow white like a somebody who was a saint that like rocked babies to sleep. was that impression correct. She was heaven sent. We couldn't believe our law. She was exactly that she couldn't have been kinder or sweeter or more genuine and she really liked him like she genuinely genuinely felt a connection with him and You know here. It was dispersed sort of classic. You know the blonde and the Brunette and you know one. One is pure as a driven snow one is kind of conniving and did fetish porn which we didn't find out so later And in fact there was this one. We see where Zora was out in the woods. I think it can remember. And she was sitting under a tree and she just so Oh snow white ish and you wouldn't believe how rigging sweet and Nice and scroll was. I was like you know what let's get. Some animated birds in having housing land on her shoulder like she is now and we.
"executive producer" Discussed on Reality Life with Kate Casey
"That you're having a great week week. Today was my son's eighth birthday. I cried at least five times. I'm a total wreck. When it's my kids birthdays? I just go back to the day they were born and I just think about it and then I start losing my mind and I weep in front of people and it's highly embarrassing. That's normal right to just totally cry when you think of your child's birth. I've also been keeping myself busy this week by watching the new season of the crown. I cannot overstate how fantastic the show is now. It's a scripted drama but it almost feels like a reality television show because you're getting an inside look into history having to do with the royal family now. I don't think there's anybody that interest most people more at this point than what's going behind the scenes at Kensington Indian Palace especially between William and Kate and Megan and hairy. So I love the crown because and I might add. This is the only show that I can watch with my husband husband because you know he watches war movies and he watches shows like billions and succession. And I watch garbage shows so this is the one that we can watch together. And and it's my favorite kind of show because we google the entire time. There's so much British history that I never knew about and you can't believe the stories is that have gone on that we never knew about an. It's because the people who work at the Castle Kensington Palace are masterful in doing lean crisis. Pr They have covered up so many stories that the crown reveals that. You can't even believe it so I don't know I kind of feel like if view love reality shows you're going to love the crown so please watch it and also Andrew being in the news all the time right now. It reminded me that I heard a rumor a couple years ago ago. That Angie Everhart son is really Prince Andrew. Whose child is that true and somebody kind of do some research on it? I feel like I heard that I don't know if I've ever seen pictures of her son so I don't know that was something that I heard this episode. I'm freaking gain out about not only because I asked Jamie keilor's to watch unpolished on. TLC which is a new show and his take is so funny. But I've got a chance to talk to Liz Bronstein. who was the show runner and CO executive producer of a fantastic show that lives in infamy called Joe Millionaire it aired in two thousand three on Fox and it was like nothing we ever seen because Fox put together show that was basically earliest spoof about the bachelor but got someone to pretend that they were a really really wealthy heir to the Marriott fortune but was in fact just a construction -struction worker and the whole theme of the show is like Ken? We full these women. Will they think that he is Joe Millionaire and then at the end. If they're the finalist list they get to find out. He's really construction worker and the real question is will she stay with him if she knows he doesn't have the money. And I'm telling you people going bananas for the show. It has the highest rated finale in reality television history. It was like thirty four point six million which is on heard of you think of like in basic like a week real housewives of Orange County. We'll get like one point. Two million viewers thirty four point six million people and I just remember Knbr was on the cover of magazines. People went crazy for it. Of course there were less reality shows them and people were really captivated at that time with the bachelor so this this kind of gives you a little glimpse into or audio glimpse into what the show was about There was an average Joe. The living by simply moving to a we need married Ninety thousand dollars the year. What will happen when every Multi millionaire red wine going there. He talked the ways of the world. Now.

I would say say that we as Bitcoin radio goes you know the success that we've been able to obtain and the amount of viewership obviously has a lot to do with the initial community that that's part of it cvt what's up.

Just call me Lebron James. I'll take all day no obviously Josh you're. You're more than prepared for this at any given moment. You've been around for a long time doing a lot of cool. Things and you have a great story to tell so. Let's go ahead and introduce you. Josh Josh first off. Tell us who you are. I mean Josh debates. I mean what does that even mean well. It's just because I spent fourteen years of my life working on the Las Vegas Strip up and the largest chunk of my adulthood was on there that was a moniker that that came early on in that and just kinda stuck so so you know I i. I've tried to get from time to time but it's definitely my twitter handle so I gotta I gotTa shout out twitter handle absolutely not you know it's only a matter of time till people like start naming their kids at you know John Smith Right. We're not I hope not but surely it's coming. I mean what's I can't believe. It hasn't happened yet. That people aren't actually literally naming their kids that twitter. Is that a thing. I don't think so I mean I get or somebody in a tattoo with their twitter handle. I'm sure people done that all right so let's kind of keep going with you. Josh Executive Producer for BITCOIN radio. Obviously I kind of surprise you earlier in the week or last week and I said Hey Josh WanNa do this. this one of the interviews with you and I was surprised that you're surprised you know I I feel like this is well-deserved and it's awesome for me to be able to set up here next to you and you know we had Jim Scam Polian a few weeks back and it was awesome to have him on because he interviewed me but this was. It's GonNa be a little different. I I really want the big wing radio community to get a chance to know who you are and to see how credible and what we're actually going to build with this platform in this This brand and I ah you know I can say as much as I want. A lot of people know me throughout Crypto but I've always been really really calm and really quiet on what the intentions are for what I wanted to be and regardless Josh you bring that level of credibility and legitimacy that I've been trying to you know figure figure out how I was going to do it myself and low behold as a gift from God himself you know Josh shows up in my life and you know me and Josh have become pretty good friends. I would say we bonded over medieval things between our you know our faith and our ability to to see you know what Bitcoin Radio Camby but let's just kind of go ahead and start with you know who you are far as a person and while you're even doing bitcoin radio yeah no absolutely I definitely I. I think that I like to find myself. Somebody who's he's a bit of a technologist. you know. I don't code but I I have an understanding of technology and passion for it a group in Seattle and we always followed Microsoft Bill Gates and turned and you know that we were a huge tech hub in in the nineties before the valley really really got known for some of these larger companies than so my career was based around music but technology was always where my heart was and my dear friend Patrick mclain nine CDC CEO of Mouse Belt came to me and my ass melt and said that he had a brilliant idea of pairing you with me and and he saw something in the U. and I didn't and then nobody else did and here we are. I think that bitcoin radio is something that hopefully you know we feel a little bit different than what everybody else is doing out there and you know the. H- Kudos to lower Shin pomp and to what Bitcoin Dead Peter McCormick and Charlie Schram and all the you know the backup is all the great of podcasts that are out there. you know hopefully we can find our own voice and do something a little bit different. You know we're we're still getting getting our legs underneath of us. It's about six weeks as we said I think it's going to be about three to six months before we really find our identity but I would hope my vision vision for us is for you to be you know a bit of a an extended mouth of the community. You know people can trust you. I trust you. You're very trustworthy person and I think the community can come to you and you have a strong community in CPT and people trust you with their thoughts and opinions and you know you're. You're an honest person and I think that what we want big win. Radio is just an extension of who you are and something that somebody's we're listening to what the community has to say and we're embracing that and I appreciate the complements to Josh. It goes both ways up. You brought up Patrick amounts about you know what's interesting. Interesting is the first time I mean I really got a chance to know Patrick about a year ago or so little little over a year ago he called. I was in Hong Kong and I was sitting with with Jeffer- tippy and injects been on C. T. before he's a funny guy. He's a lot of fun and and Jeff's like Patrick in Gaylon from from Ouseba. I was like man I that name sounds familiar you know and I mean obviously I'd seen and heard about mouse and I interacted with Patrick on small occasions occasions but he just called up Patrick. He's like Hey y'all gotta talk on the phone and so I did right and and me and Patrick immediately hit it off and obviously that that led to build a friendship around you know what they were trying to do and Patrick for all the crazy ideas these had I mean. It's been a lot of fun watching a lot of them.

"executive producer" Discussed on The Watch
"That's not at all what I would characterize them as I think that they're disturbing bumpy that works with interesting filmmakers, sometimes young filmmakers, and moonlight would be the third, but any grade pumping of eight and eighth grade. So the thing to remember about apple is the messages they've been sending around town meeting. This town is that they want to make content that Tim cook can share from on stage at at a press conference. They're not going to be making hereditary. They're not going to be making edgy. They're not gonna make you're probably they want things that are smart and intelligent, and adult and classy, but I think on some level of lifting. So it seems like they want the twenty four that made the uplifting parts of those movies, and what that means for the marriage going forward creatively. Anyone's yet. Yeah. It'll be really interesting to see how plays out. All right. Andy, we're gonna break your quick word from our sponsor. And then you'll be able to hear my interview with narcos executive producer and show runner. Eric Newman season four of narcos comes out on Friday night. And it's a sorry.

Yeah. Most fun. We yet. Ben Stiller has a new show. It's on Showtime coming out on Sunday believe, and it is called escape it, Dan Amora, and it is about the prisoner escape from two thousand and fifteen that captivated the nation the upstate New York prisoners scape.

Monday, but they're running that to episodes of night for three nights. So they're burning that off or they're creating a mini series around depending on how you wanna look at.

"executive producer" Discussed on /Film Daily
"Do any of you guys have any differences I may have missed in what? What's the difference between a producer and executive producer on the film, get the the bulk of it. The one thing I will note though is executive producer means different things for television. TV tends to be the creative hands on type. And so what Peter said is very comprehensive for film, but once you start branching out into small screen, it's completely different thing for sure. That's usually the Showrunner, right? It's the, yeah, usually, yeah. Okay. Let's move on to Damon p from Saint Louis. Missouri writes in, he knows that a lot of our team reads books and he wants to know if we believe that breaking up a film into multiple parts like deathly hallows or mocking Jay, to make the book more the movie more complete. Like the book is a good thing. So many times we hear the book is better. Why is that? Is that because the movies are limited by time to incorporate additional pop points or anything like that? What do you guys think? I'm guessing the person who reads the most books here is who Jakup maybe I mentioned me or t. but I'll chime in real quick, then I'll I'll pass baton to her since I've been talking too much, but I think that the splitting a book in the two movies has never been crave decision. I don't believe anybody who said, I think it's always been a financial decision to make more money because w hollows in mocking, Jay are books that do not demand to movies. I like both books. I like both movies were all four movies even. But there's nothing in that narrative that demands those additional hours. I think that both of them could be improved even if they were sharper. More critical adaptations when that knew what to pick and choose a new, what was important? I think a better adaptation is one that isolates the feeling of a book Riceland towards important and reconstructs it into a film rather than trying to our laboriously recreate that feeling because I think that a book and movie are so different things that trying to just say we need more time to do more events is not as good as let's find a brisker way to recapture that feeling in a new medium. But what do you think HD actually agree with most of what you said except for the splitting of deathly hallows locking. Jay was definitely a very financial decision. Thusly hallows actually provided a good splitting point in which you they gave kind of two very different films out of this very gigantic, very dense book. And I will say deathly hallows part one is my favorite book because favorite movie. Sorry, because it is so. Limited in that sense to to this one adventure in this one story that we're telling. So I think that actually works in that kind of felt like it came from both financial and creative decision, but anything that came after that such as mocking Jay, the hobbit trilogy, which was like the dumbest leading of of a book ever definitely felt more financial than anything. And as for that common phrase, the book is better than the movie. I don't fully believe that either. I think that people who who like to spout that off often are upholding the movie to different standards than the what they should. They are wanting to see their favorite parts of a book adapted and thus want that laborious that stilted at uptake to take place which don't doesn't suit movie making at all. It's something that is a very medium. It's if you want something that's closer to that feeling of the book or whatever you wanted to see from a book adaptation. Often mini series is better and. That also is a very different medium than film as well. I kind of wish that they're like filmmakers. I know that this does not make sense, but I wish film makers were given the Rome, kind of like Peter Jackson with given on the original Lord of the rings films to shoot a watt more of the book in included in a director's cut or an ultimate cut later on, like I would've loved to have seen more scenes in the Harry Potter films, you know, added back in to the the movies. I mean, I guess I guess as a screener, you have to, you know, cut it down to the the story that you wanna present onscreen, but I also see that holy Hollywood could make money by these, you know, ultimat- cut free releases and whom video Ben..
