"What's happening in music. What's happening on stage and broadway and my guest today. The incandescent beanie feldstein is doing things in all those areas. She just won't stop. I don't know what's left really. You've covered every base in the world right now. Everybody's in the middle of watching you as monica lewinsky in american crime story impeachment. I just saw you in humans which they have to wait for till next month to say but a wonderful movie in which are again brilliant. Then we hear talk of funny girl on broadway. Let's let's talk about doing going following. Hello dolly with the mount everest of a heater roles if any bryce in this so I guess it's just something everything is going the right way for you. Knock knock on all of the way the everywhere. I'm profoundly grateful and insane. The on as someone who grew up is deeply in love with musical theater end. Might my one goal. Entire life is to be on broadway. That was all adver. Hope for la dream for. And so what i did. Hello dolly. i just felt like my dreams. Were literally coming truman to be amongst the divine this and david peers and he baldwin gavin creel until retrench. These just remarkable remarkable incredible titans of musical theater and and the now to to go back to the theater. And jamie playing a role than i am literally dreamt of playing since i could make words and communicate to my mom i would were just funny girl. I had nautilus vocal chords as a kid. I be like outlook. That's what i saw of like. Might my mom pleaded for me. When i was two years old she loves me shoot a from brooklyn shingles barbra and he played it for me and i became all day once. You see it you. It's an obsession. And so i grew up. Just idolizing both danny rice and barbara streisand and super. This happening is completely the most. Surreal tabar photograph of you. What was it your four year old four year. Old birthday party where you're basically dressed three as as a unique kid like my wanted. My hobbies were singularly focused on. I asked for my third birthday. If i could go fanny brice to my third birthday party. I hope you sent it to barbara strassler. You know when i was three. Someone got that photo to barbara and she. She signed it so she seen it. You know in another context many years ago but it's it's just sort of the biggest. Most i thought monica would be on in many ways. Monica is the most challenging deeply. I feel a profound sense of responsibility. Playing monica lewinsky with there is a totally different sense responsibility when you're playing any breaks during the period. You're playing monica. I don't think it was a time where anybody was bursting into song. Hannukah as love musicals. So that's the thing that we share. We have a slightly different scoping taste. She's more of a. Elaine is rent kind of girl. And i'm more of a i'm kinda girl but we will are armies eater fans and she loves his co. also what i think is really significant in addition to what a great performance you're giving an is that we're watching a woman who didn't have a bullish that the government said okay. Here's the deal we're going to threaten. You will put you in. Jail will make your life miserable but you have to shut up the worst thing and you can't watch This whole impeachment series without feeling that if only monica had lived and experience that today in the me too movement in what happened that it wouldn't have gotten away with this crap. I completely agree with everything you said. I think monica was was. She was at the digitally early silenced by the officer independent counsel when they created her immunity deal. Heart of it was that she was not permitted to speak publicly about what was happening so she was never permitted to act as you said have her own voice you know. I really see her. In the ninety. She was sort of a meal for society in the media. Defaced upon and sort of ripped to shreds and it was all about what she was wearing her size the way she sounded Upbringing but none of it was told from her voice from her vantage point from her point of view in so Impeachment american crime story. The show was really trained to peel back the curtain. Not just monica. But also on linda tripp. Holly jones can all of the women at the center of this story in their humanity back to society into the media on into reframe. The story in a very different light. It's interesting to me. Because i kept thinking watching. You play what. Monica was going through When you did this movie. I love that is already back so far in your career. It's like two years all you now at a build a girl where you're just justice evil queen of rock journalists who learns basically to become successful by showing no empathy by saying. Here's how i'm gonna make it on the backs of everybody else and yet you seem the most empathetic of people. It's kind of you. I think that i am very much that way myself as being like i am a very much happened. I'm slammed of other people. I want everyone to feel good as much as they can in this world. That is something that i really hope to put out. you know. i think coming to this moment of playing monica lewinsky. Society painted her through very specific lens. That was andy. Smith in fat-phobic misogynistic in all of these things and so many people still see her that way. And so you know. I actually had a woman come up to me before we started filming so it was. It was before kobe but when the show had already been announced and she was like. I don't mean to bother you. I read that. You're playing. Monica lewinsky and i just i just wanna tell you. I am so ashamed of the thoughts that i thought about monica. Even inside my own head bought out. Lock anyone else. I can't believe narrative that i let this narrative that was being fed in the media affect my own thoughts and opinions of her. And i really hate myself for what i thought of her in the nineties. When this was all happening. And i'm embarrassed and i just. I wish i could tell her that. But i'm telling you because you're her you know and it was meaningful to me and i think you know she had sort of already done the work that i can. A lot of people have not done and we hope that show will help them on that journey. A really analyzing what ideology ideology was fed to them at the time. Either so many people that just no whiting which she went through they see her as the star report. They see her as you know Snl character or the tubby temptress. which is what. They called her in the papers back on. And you don't see her as a twenty four year old woman who's just trying basically a pom ball between bill clinton and linda tripp. Just being passed back and forth by these people double her age.

"The theme of my birthday cardi finding which you know. Even most of the adults did understand. Why was as you said. I was very singularly focused. From larry young age but i also not label records as a kid so i never thought i'd never be singer because i could barely feed so that that part of it was a later discovery. But i Yeah it's it's tough to surreal like. It's it's jimmy break soup. And it has broadway since nineteen sixty four with irish So if i'm yon my wildest it's beyond everything but we haven't started yet. They haven't created the company of actors. Who are going to Get to be with every night. The joy but i know doing hello dolly. Was you started this conversation by talking about joy it was like taking like if someone could put joy into a bottle and then just talking at every night it was the most joyful special experience in those people are still some of the people in worlds me were accompanying that corwin. I rob as into who very very special experience and as an audience member just so grateful that the leaders are opening again in that he will get to be back in leader. You completely separate from funding roller even being performed myself as a fan. My original of excited. And i'm so happy. I think it's so restorative eatery russo as you said whether it's healing because it's showing much like one kalinski store like showing a very untold story that needs to be told or on the flip side. Something that's nothing but joy and celebration and togetherness and community. I think romney's like a feeling so healing. It's healing for me to be in the audience though radical Having gone to know your brother as well obviously over the years I know him to be an extraordinarily creative person in many respects. Not just acting. But in in writing directing etcetera. I see you've written a bit. Like i read some of your essays on a very moving about your brother which strikes me like. You don't have to do something like that something. That is a brave like things to share with others. I guess in the hopes of explained that we all deal with grief In profound ways. But i mean talked. Me is writing therapeutic for you. Do you find writing joyful in a different way than than acting or is it a different kind of love. Or what totally. I think I love mostly nonfiction writing. That is what. I kind of essays in kind of academic leaving us say sometimes is more kind of my. My my goal will be to write something that is very sociologically driven but made palatable through like Human experience and you know. I think i've written about bodies written about feminism but that one the referencing was obviously the most difficult. But i think just like with any type of storytelling. It can make you feel less alone. Read something That resonates in that feels profound and specifically with grief. It can be such a lonely feeling experience. You feel like you're kind of walking through world that no one understands so writing that was really clarifying for me and then it took the Jump in and put it out and it's been really beautiful to hear people's responses. Yeah i love to write. I think more in the way that i was saying than screenwriting as a now. That's not really some that. I i've gone to but i also feel like you know you can't really In libya while not be inspired. Jonas is stirring up inspired. So.

Like a lot of it is frankly. I think of way might head is oriented his blockbusters which i love. But like you think of black panther recently shonky and whatever and it's just something really beautiful about seeing people for the first time getting a chance to see their their lives in some way depicted and it's It's incredibly important than they depart import Also like it such.

Make emily sue practic and others are arguably just as smart not way smarter but just never succeeded in the classroom setting and didn't go off in like who gives a like. I don't care at all but for me that setting with something that i craved and so i was lake acting will be there which was a hard decision to make because i look super young. Select played like fourteen fifteen when i was eighteen and i could have auditioned for all these rules. That are you know when you're old enough in your school in all is there were so many people saying like just just go for it now but what i really wanted to now. You've got myself that that needed to see something through in a way that i had analyze. I'm so grateful wesleyan. I'm so. I'm really proud younger self or kind of committing to that It's my. I got emotional when i got my degree because i was like. Wow i could quit so many times. Oh my god. It's such an unusual path for a young personalities. Where i feel like there's so much impatience to like. When do i get mine. When do i book especially in your field. Like when do i just wasn't your aspiration. But when do i get famous. When do i get the lakes. When do i get the hedge elation and it's really telling that you were able to kind of like stave that off and stay true to a different part of yourself for as long as you did that. Achmat studies that social scientists in the video of the kids with marshmallows. That are like have you ever seen it. It's all about delayed gratification. It's like they put marshals in front of kids and they're like if you don't touch it or eat it it when i come back in twenty minutes you can have to but did you have another. It's all like the study in delayed gratification of syria. I liked sat on my hands. And jim eat the marshmallow. Right away you.

I'm curious like okay so we've talked before and we literally today obviously your interest in musical theater and song and dance jazz hands etcetera but like when i asked you for a comfort movie You gave a few different choices and we. We pinpointed one. That i want you to dive a little bit deep on today but none of them are musicals although i guess one of them has a big musical aspect to it But talk me a little bit. I hope to be a little bit about who you were they. Did you have an eclectic of pop culture or were you like as a teenager like all about music musical theatre or did you kinda love it.

I really did not think it was necessary. I understood with my job was. I didn't think it was necessary to make her have to relive those experiences with me before ever seen it would just be. It's one hundred. Seven days would have been too much. So yeah there were there were weeks for. We would tech. There will be weeks rain. We will be off doing our own things in the extra So did you call this grandma. Ob or i can't remember what you achieve away. But she was very involved with the script. She gave a lot of until the scripts so by the time the scripts reached me. I knew that specifically about monica when wanaka appears on the page that it had been you know felt honest and trudeau Monica herself winter So yeah i think that was a deeply long or it's all very very fascinating and and people be curious to hear about it on one aspect that i'm curious about. Is you know my sense is from our past conversations and following each other on social media we share a lot of the same politics and it's a complicated relationship. I feel like a lot of people have with the clintons. And when you take on a project like this like the likelihood of this is a superficial kind of the least of your worries in some respects but like the likelihood of you being friends now with chelsea clinton or hillary clinton probably gone down significant. He thinks your participation in this product. They'll probably not anxious to see this dramatized. And who knows if dollar watch it. Is that even a consideration. Like i in some ways in meyer. What these folks have done politically. And i don't i feel shitty about kind of dredging up for them and knowing that they're going to hate it in a way. I think that you know. I think if you looked Media i campaign for hillary clinton. I don't fury openly acura at camping for hillary And i also simultaneously. Think that what happened to monica and linda tripp and hall jones. Not just seeing him but all three the women in the nineties the treatment that they experienced by our society through the media was so misogynistic and so dehumanizing end a caricature of person lacked all humanity. And i think that those things can be true. At same time. I believe in complexity i believe in things not being black or white or this vapid there being a lot of you know i feel like the greatest thing about human beings that were mushy messy and complicated in that. We can exist in multitudes. You know and. I think the fact that i campaigned. Bolivar's lereah something that. I'm very proud of the fact that i'm playing monica lewinsky. Giving her story maps Angles of those things can be true at the same time. I wanna take this opportunity since we do have some time to To take a step back and kind of look at where you're at and where you've come from Because it's it's only been a few short years since you've been doing this professionally but It's been exciting to see you and talk to you at these very exciting kind of points of interviewing ever. I think maybe that was on. The set set definitely first onset interviewed for show. I'm honored that. I was in the right place at the right time. So that was on the set of of neighbors. To and i'm i'm curious in a few respects like on that front. That was your first film. I believe right interest for sure right so you. I mean you waited though you graduated college you like despite like everything about you is like you practically came out of the womb like ready like singing dancing entertain totally so you were lucky enough to have that certitude yet you didn't pursue it professionally prior to then even having an older brother who succeeded and seen that path. I'm just curious like your mindset of like why you why you waited. That was clearly. A decision was totally decision..

This plants like older sister younger sister to choose like one of the great lakes in my life. And i'm in a is a tacoma would is because of all the of course just naturally is a job and then through all my research. I found the research really painful difficult to. I'm because it was so heavy and dark and upsetting to me as a young woman reading about what happened to monica and end in relative for friendship and all the other dynamics at play on the show. So of course. I'm new but it. It was kind of the first time that it struck me in the day to day moment of the acting of being on saturday i was like i genuinely never done this before. We're done this before. And the the death in the pain and the intense humanity of lamonica had to go through specifically in inada episode but also beyond it in before it was it was kind of dropped. I just couldn't believe even going up. Some musicals are very emotional and very dark and dramatic. But i didn't even opt to do those weasels. I was doing comedy. And then i did our town in milan project and i did class of plays in school setting right always even then people will be like outside your comfort zone and it was interesting because it actually it it was incredibly challenging so many ways but also felt really beautiful and it was such a powerful experience for me to get to portray one or the other you know very unique aspects of oppression like this. I know you've talked about a lot but it's something that i'm sure is important to you. Is that even told me when i ran into you that you've yourself as kind of monaco's bodyguard to to a certain extent. She's a producer on this as well and for me you know watching the watched the first five episodes and the the watch on reevaluate Just how she was treated and how she was vilified. An end at the center of this madness background is just fascinating. I think anyone my age will feel like complicit liked to be laugh at the monologue jokes. We like you know i. It's kind of. It's really disturbing in many aspects but for you having this unique opportunity to not only play her have access to her and to to form this kind of bond with her I mean talk to me. A little bit about how that relationship has evolved. What is the nature of the relationship. Like let me pick your brain about this or is it more more less specific in terms of how you guys work together is the second one. It's the second one for sure and keep this understand. We have this vision of me calling her before Wanna communist is also not you remember again this this and this is someone strong so i really think that it was it. Didn't it didn't feel needed for me to call her and say can you can you just. We live that trauma for me quickly over the phone. That's to be a solid. Go to this darkness in your life and tell me what you're feeling. Yeah like she watches the show from two different perspectives. One is pretty story and one is like as subjects as subject. It's incredibly difficult and as a producer. I'm incredibly proud of both of those. Things can be true at the scene ta but for me. I did before i even got to meet monica. Ryan call me in june twenty nineteen and i didn't need monica until march twenty twenty so in those nine months. I did an intense deep amount of research. are wonderful researcher on the show gave each of us like a dropbox. That had all the information.

And i can attest now as well that she late separate room which she had this inner energy that would just china lay on whoever was around her and so in that way the beginning of the story before monica meets any of the other major players. We were very similar. It not like our demeanor and the way too late people revert people loving were very outgoing extroverted so when monica was in that space. It was incredibly kind of natural and larry Intrinsic and jerry joyful. She's she's in a police at the beginning of not necessarily actually in the first episode mcconnell logically in nineteen ninety five when she comes to dc. She graduated from college in portland a month before she unsteady see so. She's not moment where i think any of us. That are old enough to know that feeling. Like completely understand your.

But who are you as adults in the world for the first time and it's really exciting norgren kind of like doubly delicious spot in your life where you're coming in jolt in truth for the first time and so that connected to she was very easy and it was also very joyful. And then it was sort of the unraveling of that feeling that you kind of Watch monica go through your obviously under very specific specific circumstances throughout the show and she does experience a lot of pene betrayal trauma and those were very new for me to explore onscreen but the beginning of the nineteen ninety five kind of soup and thought all smart. You know all of those attributes He comes into her into her internship possessing. I felt lake. We're very grateful Kind of natural. It's funny. Because like i talked to so many actors that have worked with ryan murphy And he's obviously instigates this project that brings it to you and they love they love ryan like to a man. Everybody just like adores ryan. And i think i i get why in a number of respects and one of them occurs to me in that like brinson like sarah paulson's work with ryan like who but ryan has shown has given her the opportunity to show so many different sides of what she can. Do you only need to look. Honestly i mean she's sounds so much more like the work is done with ryan alone is like the spectrum of acting and similarly for you. You know we've never seen you in a you just kind of alluded to like these kind of like especially these darker portions as she kind of liked gets you know embroiled in this It must be so invigorating. Inspiring for you as an actor. When someone like ryan murphy calls you up and says i wanna see you do something you haven't done in a project for this of this nature e you nailed you you get but it was. It was it was exactly it. Was you know all. I ever want in my working in impersonal to is to be challenged kind of. What's the next thing. What's the next story or character that it's gonna make me raise my own state at raise my own game in and pushed me outside my comfort zone whether it's a shift in medium or shift in genre or type of story never told before that's what you always look for. Is that like you. Don't wanna be too comfortable because you're not growing So when ryan call means you wanna play monica lewinsky. Nba producer on the project. It was like handing that delicious kind of otherworldly challenge because it was something that i remember. There was a moment when we were filming a sequence. That is actually the very opening sequence of show and then we returned to that moment in the sixth episode Which is. Linda has led monica to the mall to be taken by the fbi. Into osman and council.

It's actually a storyline on glee. There finally is a funny girl. Revival on broadway and of course lee.

Well i do think she's been enraptured in a little bit of scandal over the last couple years and i don't think people want to be associated with as if they're reading thing no she had her whole drama. What was she was accused of right of like bully bullying and like tar targeting a lot of the poc. My god. yes. I totally forgot about. And then like she. Sponsors dropped just kind of went off and she's kind of like off the record and not the writer of the radar. She's releasing an album but she's much living a much more low key life. I completely forgot. Yes so i think that's one reason i don't i mean honestly this is this is news. I'm very interested in because i'm jewish. They did some sort of open casting call because like my ass. What a went like. I wouldn't have gotten the part. Because i have no formal training but like i would just like what are the store and it would have logged it for patriot. But but i have a lot of hope for beating. I'm excited for her. She does have background. I do think that's important. I think she's jewish. I think that's also important. She has the look you know but we've never heard i've never heard her saying i have. She sings on ben watson ceram all the time. Yeah yeah she's classically trained. You know but i just wanna say one caveat. I do think it's important when casting fanny brice to cast one who gives off fannie. Brice energy fbi. And i do not think any feldstein would have chosen her for this. Like i never even would have thought of her as a fanny brice energy. Kind of gal lima. Shell obviously comes to mind. With the founding brace energy she's radiating at throughout her body..

"You're listening to the daily sales tips. Podcast i'm your host scott ingram. Today's tip comes from kina feldstein. Kina has recruited and trained over fourteen hundred sales reps across various industries in her career. Her teams were top. Five out of hundreds she was number one. In productivity per rep in the nation generated millions in revenue and presidents club every year. She now oversees a team of sales enablement managers for house of revenue who execute sale strategies and build sales infrastructure for all their clients. Here she is if you're in sales. I'm sure you've heard the this is too expensive for us. It's not in our budget objection so if it's too expensive versus i can't afford it. Those are completely two different objections. i can't afford. It is purely a matter of means versus. It's too expensive or doesn't sit our budget. That is more so around the value. Not being built so the concept. I don't wanna talk to you today. About is value needs to exceed price always the moment the price exceeds the value. That they that your prospect interprets. They see this as a rip off. They don't see they can't justify the price so the price as a salesperson. You cannot handle and you have no control over. The price is fixed and it stays pretty constant but what you as a salesperson has control over is building the value as long as you can build a value even a little bit past the price you will make a sale so think of it this way you probably refer company right now where the price of your offering is either mid level or one of the highest prices and the reason why i say the so confident confidently is because your company wouldn't need a sales person that they were offering a product or service at the lowest price in the marketplace. They need you. It's your job because you need to build value. You basically need to justify and explain why your product or service is at a higher price than the incumbent. A premium price needs a premium sales story. So your job is to deliver that premium sales story in order to justify a higher price. So your job is to build the value to exceed the price and there are so many different things that builds value a lot of people. Think it speech dumping it's going through capabilities and it's going through all the different you know pros and cons of your service or product and that's how you build value. There's a lot more to building value bill value. The words that you use the words you use can either break the value or build the value so looking at the way you speak. Is there a word here and there that you can change out that would enhance or bill value for example. I'll just give you you know if you if you point at something as oh. This is the white option. Can you change that that color to the pearl or a word that exudes luxury. You know the way you do your proposals the way you staple your proposals or do you put him in an beautiful portfolio your powerplants or your decks are they just put together with bullet points or they nicely branded even your brand which i know you don't have much control over but the brand can signify value. Also how you show up..

In productivity per rep in the nation generated millions in revenue and presidents club every year. She now oversees a team of sales empowerment managers for house of revenue who executes sales strategies and build sales infrastructure for all their clients here. She is semi tip. That i have for. You is being off of self and on purpose. Let's talk about the opposite before. I dive into what it looks like to be off self on purpose. What does it look like feel like to be on itself off of purpose. And when you're on yourself and your off of your purpose off of your objective. This is where that commission breath can be smelled among all of the prospects in the universe. 'cause we're on our self worth thinking about. Am i saying it right. I need to sail. I have to close this. My boss is gonna kill me. If i don't close this deal and all we're thinking about ourselves and we're not putting ourselves in our prospects shoes to emphasize to handle objection and to best work with our prospects in any concerns. They may have. So i'm a big proponent on internalising memorizing all scripts and objections and any type of you know collateral that your your team gives you because when you internalize them memorize then you have the freedom to personalise a lotta sales. Teams and sales people are like well. It's not like how i speak. I don't really talk like that and you probably don't but once you internalize and memorize it word for word then you can personalize it so then it becomes more of your own. You want to internalize the program so that way you can be focused on getting off of yourself a sales call and being more on purpose because if you're the opposite where you're on self off purpose you're going to be constantly thinking about. Am i saying this right. And it's all about if you're doing it the right way versus how you're delivering it when you can be you know off of yourself on your purpose then you can focus on how you're saying and how you're delivering so when you think about being off self and on purpose this is how i envision it you walk into a prospect of meeting and you see your prospects and there. I just like to look at them as a cartoon character with a bunch of bubbles over their head and all these bubbles are possible fears objections and concerns. When truly off of yourself and your on purpose you can actually see. This is your superpower. You can see all of the concerns questions fears that your prospect has and it's almost it's almost a magic trick you walk in and if you're truly off of self and your on purpose and you're in flow you'll watch their arm starts. The meeting armed may be crossed. Because they're unsure about you or they're picking lint off. They're closing because they're just not really that sure about buying and then if you're popping every fear bubble you'll watch their arms uncrossed so you wanna be able to quiet. Every fear handle every objection and handle every concern. 'cause what's the best house the best way to handle an objection before it happened. You're going to close before the close if you're office self in your on purpose if you're no longer thinking about whether you're saying things right if you're following the script if you need to close this deal how your boss is gonna feel whatever wants thinking about you and your truly off of yourself and on your purpose you can emphasize you can put yourself in your prospects shoes. You can almost feel the movement of the room before it happens. You can read the minds of your prospects and see the concerns and objections before they even realize they have them..

The Birth Of The Greenback

The Indicator from Planet Money

The Birth Of The Greenback

"Stacey next. Jacob Feldstein. Planet money author of money the true story of amid up during a new book. Say I. brought props for us to do the indicator. I say. That's been months. It's been. That guy's been honking hall eight months. I have props came over so I could give you these troughs. Okay. Go ahead and look at them. All right. Okay. So, this is like a really high quality xerox of an old piece of money. THREE DOLLAR BILL RE dollar bill that's really a real thing. There's like a a lady standing next to in like a ball gown standing next to a cow to I chose a cow to pander to you I do love a cow keep going. Okay. The Orange Bank It's orange because this from the orange. Bank and this is a one dollar bill. So Stacey, these are reproductions of real paper money that was printed by private banks in the United States in the eighteen forties and fifties. This is one of the most interesting periods I found in the history of money when I was working on my book, it's this moment when the United States government did not print money, there was in fact, no single national paper currency but if you wanted to. Open Up Stacey's Bank of New York and print your own paper money. You could. I don't know if I would trust that dollar from that. Was a real problem that was a real problem we'll get to that. I. Mean they were just so many different kinds of money at one point the Chicago Tribune counted eight, thousand, three, hundred, and seventy different kinds of paper money in America. This sounds very confusing for everyone involved this indicator from planet money. I'm Stacey Vanik Smith and Jacob. Goldstein can we make eight, thousand, three, hundred and seventy, the indicator? Yes. Today on the show. How can you even have that many kinds of money and also just what does it tell us about money works? Let's just go. Let's just go a block away to get away from the horn. Yeah. Support for NPR and the following message come from fund. fundraise fund makes it easy for anyone to invest in high quality real estate by building you a portfolio with their more than one billion dollars in assets get started at fundraise dot com slash indicator to have your first ninety days of advisory fees. Waived. This message comes from NPR sponsor. Microsoft teams. Now, there are more ways to be a team with Microsoft teams bring everyone together in a virtual room collaborate live on the same page and see up to forty nine people onscreen learn more at Microsoft Dot com slash teams. So can we should set the scene here Jacob the nineteenth century America lots of is apparently also this was the era when gold and silver were money and Jacob say in the book that the government minted gold and silver coins, but it did not make paper money at that time. The exactly right. So the only paper money in America was printed by all of these different. Private banks people called paper money in fact banknotes, right. So they thought of it as like a piece of paper from a bank and they thought of paper money in particular as like a receipt or a coach ticket as as a thing that you could substitute for gold and silver, and in fact, if you look at at the bills I gave you all have this kind of. Writing like just grab a different one for fun. So we can say what it looks like. Okay. This is the stoning ten bank, a two dollar bill. There's a way. Moby Dick or something Wail Bell we've cow Bill Wail Bill So okay. So now look at the cursive writing see the cursive they're just blowers is stoning to. Two dollars to the bear on demand right and if you look all these different bills are different colors, they have different pictures on them, but they all say that will pay how ever many dollars to the on demand and so the second interest. Yeah it's an Iou because the interesting thing is it's telling you the paper money is not the real money. Right? They're saying we will give you two dollars in gold and silver for this paper money right? So the real money in this world is the underlying gold or silver the paper is just like. The Standard. So this is a time in history when there's not federal bank, there's not a national bank. There's like thousands of of little local banks and I guess all these banks can issue their own money. That's right and it's kind of evolving in this period at the beginning of this ehre the eighteen thirties. If you wanted to open a bank, typically you had to go to your state legislature and get special approval. Basically, they had to pass a special law that would let you open your bank and this was problematic because I was super corrupt essentially. Bank and print money. Then you're gonNA bribe whoever you have to. Say all the knee. All due respect to get them to let you open your bank. Right. So around eighteen forty, a little earlier, this new idea became popular. The new idea was called free banking. And the idea of free banking was anybody who is willing to follow a few basic rules could. Take and start printing money and literally start printing money and you know not surprisingly a lot of people wanted to print money. This is how we get eight thousand different kinds of money. Yes. How do you know if the bill that someone's handing you is real money or if it's literally just a piece of paper from the First Bank of Stacey Vanik Smith which might be real money. I wouldn't. Maybe. Add bribed senator so I love this so there arose in response to this problem these special periodicals Magazines that were privately published called banknote reporters. And what they were was these lists in tiny font of every kind of money. So I actually have a reproduction here another prop from a page. This one was called. Thomson's Bank note. Reporter. K.. So the people who subscribe to this merchants people who need to accept money. So so let's just say I'm running a bar and I got my thompsons bank note reporter and I come in I need a drink who thirsty I'm thirsty. So okay. So the page of the bank note reporter I printed out is for Orange Bank. Okay. Okay. So have that bill right here it is and it's a one dollar bill. So I find Orange Bank here in my Bengal reporter and it says Okay Orange Bank listed different bills and says ones and under wants it describes what the bill is supposed to look like says to horses check. Hey, Cart Jack Blacksmith shop male portrait Jack Girl. Check. So it's at least plausibly real. The reporter also tells me something else that's important and that explains a lot about how many works at this time. Typically would tell me whether I should accept that paper money at full face vowed I can buy my dollar whiskey with this whether you can get your dollar whiskey because remember what we care about is whether I can turn in that paper money for gold or silver, and so if the bank is shaky or even if it's just really far away. You know the reporter might say, just knock five cents off the dollar give Stacey Ninety five cents worth of whiskey instead of a dollar that took a really long time to buy that we ski. It does seem like it would have been absurdly inconvenient right and for a long time when people look back at this period, the basic story of free banking was just that was a horrible idea like that many kinds of money right but. Much, later, like in the nineteen seventies. This generation of economic historians started going back and looking more closely. At the banks and how money works in this period and what they saw when they really went through the numbers was basically like it wasn't that bad Bankston go bus that often people didn't usually lose much money when they used. We're you overall they would lose like a few percent which is. Kind of like what you pay today. So when you take money out of the weird off Brand ATM at. The corner store. which I always do. Yeah, I. Mean. That's basically like the the bartenders giving you ninety cents for your dollar when you do that, right? So. Obviously, we do not have eight thousand different kinds of money now this ended and it ended after the civil war. Yeah was the civil war. So during the civil war, that old American argument of can we have national banks or not came up again and Congress passed a few important banking laws. One of them basically taxed all those thousands of kind of state banknotes out of existence, and then the other one created these new national banks that printed much more reliable, much more uniform paper money. It's interesting because I mean, this was obviously after the civil war was the time when the United States went from like a collection of. To One Country, and it seems like the same thing happened with currency maybe not a coincidence. Your I mean, there is this idea at least in the modern world money is part of what makes a country a country and I think you do see that happening at this moment in the united. States when we go from thousands of kinds of money toward one uniform kind of paper money I'm just sad we lost the cow bills. Because you know Jacob I have a fever and the cure. This story in like a whole bunch of other like believable stories like this are in your new book money. The true story of a made up thing. This episode of the indicator was produced by Nick. Fountain fact check by Britney Cronin, the indicators edited by Patty hearst and is a production

"That is exactly what it feels like to have a crush into finally have that moment where you're like, okay, this is my chance. I just thought about this. But I feel like I was much like Molly in high school in that I was very black or white this or that. And then when you choose a side you kind of double down, and you're like this is how I feel all the time. Never really left any room for like a gray area or like the Multidimensionality of people are complex kind of opinion on something. And so I think the lesson that Molly learned throughout the film is really to open herself up to seeing people for fully are, and that you don't always have to double down or severed. And so I really relate to that journey. And I think it was one that I went on from, like seventeen eighteen nineteen where you're like I don't have to my opinions can change my concepts of people can grow. I'm gonna go myself and I love that are characters are so smart. But they're not always wise and it, it gives people room to feel like I'm a little bit flawed, but also I'm a really great person and a little love in the movie. And I, I'm someone that likes that builds people up, and I think our films relate, a testament to that I had the good fortune of seeing the film with a bunch of kids at Columbia, college, and incredible usually will the experiences is one. That is much different when you're screening film for an interview you go into a room with a couple of critics and everyone's quiet. Everyone sits there and then you walk out and you're like I don't know if that was good. I don't know. I have no idea your brain every movie. That's great. Watching this film, with a bunch of young adults, who had to have just had that experience and to watch them respond to the different jokes, and the different not even the jokes. But the, the scenes the moments in the film, it's for you to be in that room at the same time. It's watch the audiences react like this specially audiences that young. How does it make you feel? I was so we were able to we hadn't seen the. We hadn't seen that we've only seen the movie twice, and we hadn't seen the ending credits yet, and we walked in and seeing everyone's faces at the end is just like a lot of moving experience. I don't even I don't even know what to feel right now. I literally just like I'm overjoyed. She's so exciting. You wake and you're like, oh, I mean, we think it resonates this way. Are we think that this message is in it, and every screening we've gone to every person we've talked to getting it and that stand it to a level that yeah, that's great. Just having so much fun. They're getting their questions were so insightful. It was just an they had so much fun. It seemed it was it was really special film is called book smart. It's out in theaters this week.

Production of iheartradio. Hey, brain stuff loin Vogel bomb here in September of nineteen forty two US army, Lieutenant General Leslie groves commander of the Manhattan project. Those secret US crash effort to develop the atomic bomb faced a critical decision. The project needed to produce uranium-235 an isotope of uranium who's unstable nucleus could be easily split trigger efficient chain-reaction and release enormous amount of destructive energy, but that would require a massive complex manufacturing process involving tens of thousands of workers which needed to be kept secret to thwart interference from spies and saboteurs. But the question was where those priscilla's possibly be hidden U S officials had already identified potential sites in several parts of the country, but all of them had drawbacks Shasta dam in California. For example, was too close to the Pacific coast and this Volna rebel air attack in several locations in Washington state would have required construction of long power lines to provide the massive amounts of electro. Needed for the work site in Illinois near Chicago was also out officials didn't want to be close to a big population centers since the potential health risks of the work were not clear, and it would have been easier for enemy Asians to blend in around a city. So instead groves quickly settled upon fifty two thousand acre. That's twenty one thousand Hector site in rural eastern, Tennessee later expanded slightly not only would it be inconspicuous to anyone outside of the sparsely populated area. But it was also close to hydroelectric plants operated by the Tennessee valley authority, which could supply the enormous amounts of electrically that the plans would require it was the perfect place to build both the Clinton engineer works, which would be the atomic complex and secret city to house the workers the government decided to call the secret city oakridge because it sounded quote, sufficiently bucolic and general according to an article in a nineteen sixty nine government review of the project, not long after choosing the area, the US government quietly started moving small farmers who had land on the site paying them compensation, but not telling them why then came trainloads full of construction equipment and building materials construction crews quickly erected the buildings that would comprise the nondescript we named campus as well as. Thousands of houses for scientists and workers. Many of the homes were be one flat tops, a designed fashion from prefabricated panels and roofing to save construction time building the secret industrial facilities and housing for workers cost around one point three two billion dollars. That's about eighteen point five billion in today's money that amounted to sixty percent of the Manhattan, project's total budget over the next few years oakridge grew into a community of seventy five thousand people. We spoke with de Ray Smith, a retired historian for the UAE twelve national security complex who also is the historian for these city of Oak Ridge and a columnist for the Oak Ridge or a local newspaper Smith explained people came from all over the world. Many of the scientists were Hungarians a lot came out of Germany and Great Britain. He explains that others were recruited for the Clinton engineering works by big US companies working on the Manhattan project who scoured campuses if US colleges and universities for bright students with needed science and technical skills. For example, a young chemist named Bill Wilcox who was approached by an Eastman Kodak recruiter in nineteen forty-three later recalled that he was only told that the job was some sort of secret war work. He said I asked where I'd be working. He wouldn't say it was secret. I asked what sort of work. I'd be doing. He wouldn't say it was secret Wilcox eventually ended up at the Clinton engineer works. According to Smith, those who turned down jobs might end up being drafted into a special engineering detachment of the US army. And sent to Tennessee anyway. Those atomic workers arrived at a place shrouded in secrecy, locals knew something mysterious was going on at the site. But only those who are part of the mission were allowed inside past. The guarded gates on the access roads, the atomic facilities themselves were surrounded by digital security. The work itself was highly compartmentalized. So that most people knew only about the small portion of the effort that they themselves were working on. And only a select few new. The overarching mission was to help make the atomic bomb access to buildings other than the one you were working in was highly restricted to keep information from getting out oakridge became a self contained community with most everything that its workers needed secret city had stores movie houses, a high school a Bank, a three hundred bed hospital, tennis and handball courts and even its own Symphony Orchestra led by a Manhattan project. Scientists people who live there tended victory gardens raised families, and led what was pretty much normal American existence. That is except for the secrecy that surrounded them in their work. A billboard reminded workers. Let's keep our traps shut. They knew they had to be cautious. Not to say anything about their jobs to anyone even their own spouses, a young scientists told one of the first reporters tried about the subject when Louis Feldstein would sit around the dinner table, and the strain was terrible. But it was all in the difficult effort of producing uranium-235. There's only a tiny amount of the stuff zero point seven percent in uranium or most of which is uranium two thirty eight which doesn't fit in as easily and above such as little boy. The one dropped on Hiroshima required. One hundred and forty one pounds. That's sixty four kilograms of uranium-235. You have to separate a lot of material to get that much to thirty five to solve that problem. The Clinton engineer works y twelve plant used special devices called Cal trans which utilized the electromagnetic separation process developed by Nobel winning physicist Ernest Lawrence, the university of California, Berkeley, the Cal trans used heat and powerful magnets to separate the two isotopes and then to collect just the uranium-235 isotope because it's so much lighter in weight together. Enough uranium-235 for the projects purposes, the y twelve facility employed twenty two thousand workers to run one thousand one hundred fifty two Kalua trans literally around the clock. Meanwhile, another part of the works. The x ten graphite reactor. Used neutrons emitted from uranium-235 to convert uranium two, thirty eight into an isotope of a different element. Plutonium two thirty nine another easily fissionable material suitable for making Tomek bombs as myth explains after x ten demonstrated that the process could work the actual plutonium used to make Fatman the bomb dropped on Nagasaki was produced in the b reactor at the Hanford engineer works near Richmond, Washington. Finally on August. Sixth nineteen Forty-five the world witnessed the results of the secret cities. Labor's when the United States dropped an atomic bomb containing uranium-235 produced there on the Japanese city of Hiroshima the Knoxville, Tennessee, new sentinels front page headline proudly proclaimed atomic super bomb made it oakridge strikes Japan that wasn't completely correct though, the uranium-235 came from Tennessee parts, the bomb were made it three different plants. So that none of them would have the complete design the destruction at Hiroshima and Nagasaki was horrific, and it was a or perhaps the turning point of the war. After the war. The various parts of the once secret, Tennessee, atomic complex were split up part eventually was reborn as the Oak Ridge National Laboratory, which helped pioneer the field of nuclear medicine present isotopes for use intriguing cancer and as diagnostic tools in addition to doing cutting edge research areas ranging from nanotechnology to wireless, charging of electric vehicles and other portion became the twelve national security complex, which produced components for tens of thousands of thermonuclear weapons in the us arsenal during the Cold War and leader helped disassemble US and former Soviet nuclear weapons third part is now the site of the east Tennessee technology park, though, there's no evidence that German or Japanese spies ever managed to infiltrate the Clinton engineer works. A Soviet spy named George co Ville did manage to get a job there. And apparently passed along information about the atomic work to the Soviets in two thousand seven he was honored posthumously with a hero of the Russian federation medal.

Summer Movie Preview

"The movies of summer twenty nineteen. What is out there? What's going to happen? And I've got to start by saying you think maybe that summer begins on your calendar near the end of June. But not in Hollywood everything in Hollywood begins early because summer is when they make all the money that they can make all year. So officially April twenty six it's the beginning of summer because the movie that opens on that day is called a ventures endgame. This is three hours long. Nobody's gonna care. I predict that not only will this be the biggest box office hit of the summer, but it will be the biggest box office hit of the year. You remember what happened last time all the ventures or at least half of them seem to turn to dust than die mean? Now have those ventures that are left to signing if they can beat the evil fan. He so evil will the adventures be wiped out forever. Look how much money did these movies make I'm saying why would you basically kill the golden goose? This is going to continue in some way, we all know it. So what else is out there? I'm looking at my list. There's a major thing going on now of in terms of taking the Disney slash Pixar animated classics and turning them into live action movies. So we have The Lion King line king. One of the most successful Disney animated movies ever is now being done as a live action movie. You have Donald Glover being Simba. You have James Earl Jones actually being this father and the same scores. They're the same using. And it's directed by John Fabbro who did such a great job with the jungle book doing the same thing that I think we can all feel optimistic about what's going to happen. And then we have Aladdin when we remember the. Animated movie who do we remember the most? We remember Robin Williams doing the voice of the genie. This time doing the voice of the genie and being the genie. We have Will Smith. So big stars in this big kind of thing, they tried it with Dumbo earlier this year, and that didn't quite work the way they wanted to do. But we're talking about lying king and the Ladan so big deal. Now, what terms of old fashioned animation is out there. I don't know if you're like me. But there's a Toy Story four toy stories always been my favorite of those Pixar. There's something about Woody and buzz light year, and you're probably saying to yourself. Well, and Toy Story three didn't it happen. That would he said goodbye, Andy. And he went to college, and it was all over remember. There was little Bonnie Andy gave his toys too. So we're going to have little Bo peep comeback. I think when you look at what goes on in Toy Story, you have that kind of feeling of goodness of field. Goodness, but done with all the magic of Pixar. So if those adventures out there are going to have a run for their box office money. I would say Toy Story. Four is going to be the one that does it. So what else we now have men in black men in black international? You're not gonna see Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones anymore. But this time you have Chris Hemsworth and Tessa Thompson. As new agents who are out there in this men in black universe. Sometimes you say to yourself do I want more of that? And you never know to actually see it. And I can only tell because I haven't seen this movie yet. But it looks like there's chemistry there. Then we have Spiderman far from home. You know, the Spiderman franchise never seems to end either. But we have Tom Holland who played him last time charmingly, I think, but now spider man, Peter Parker. They're taking a European vacation and the villain that they run up against is mysterious. Played by Jake Jilin. All I just think they're still some special sauce in the Spiderman universe, and I expect this one to also be a major hit. Godzilla Godzilla king of the monsters. I see that. And I go how much can they work this poor God's, but you can look at the trailer and see it. I like the idea that aside from viewer for Megan who is in it, Billy Bobby Brown from stranger things is in its she the dynamo. So if God Zillah can basically meet his match betting on little Millie to do something with that Hobbes and Shaw, this is fast and the furious you remember the rock of playing the the law man, and Jason stefon playing the outcast and the rebel these guys. I don't know if this is Hollywood kind of thing, but they tell us that Jason stadium and the rocked wing Johnson. Don't really like each other. And maybe that what the reason we love these characters and show so much because we liked that conflict. I don't know it seems a PR stunt to me, but I'm going to be there because this cars. There's the rock and their Stefa. So you're going to be there to and you know, it, oh and the big deal. Now, everybody has just in the midst of welcoming game of thrones back to their lives. The last season of that. You can't bear to live in a world where you can't see the stark sisters anymore. Well, now, you can dark Phoenix, which is part of the X men universe. Bring Sophie Turner, and she's Jean grey this character that we've seen before. But she's this younger version of her and she split between the good side of her and the dark Phoenix side of her. And to me, these girls are tremendously talented in what they do on game of thrones. And I think we're going to keep seeing them through the years, but her sister her at least game of thrones sister, maisy Williams is in new mutants part of that universe too. But in this case, they're all new characters to do this. They're all gonna be in the X men universe. Doing it. So that's it for the blockbusters that are out there. You've got everything from animation to comic book characters to everything. And that's the stuff that you hear about that your friends are going to talk to you about. But there's gotta be other stuff to part of summer is comedy of. I think we all really have gone through a long winter. And we're saying make us laugh give us something that will just make say, whatever. I can just sit back and not think. So what's there for that? There's a movie called longshot. This is a movie in which Charlotte Theran is playing the secretary of state who is running for president. But falling Manley in love with who staff throw in. Okay. It's like, a beauty and the beasts thing going on here. Seth Rogan is her speechwriter all of her people say what are you doing? You're going to destroy your career. But no, it's love. And if you don't laugh at the combination of Seth Rogan, Charlie staring. There's nothing left for you. And then we have the hustle. The hustle is a movie that used to be called dirty run scoundrels where the old days it was about conman. Now, it's con- women. They're played by Anne Hathaway and rebel Wilson. And they basically go all cross the continent finding rich people whose money they can steal pretty people. Glamour? What's wrong with that? Oh, book smart. This is directed by the actress Olivia Wilde, and it's about girls graduating from high school and saying we spent all our lives with our head in the books. Everybody else is going to parties and having fun. So they're going to do that beanie Feldstein plays one of them. She is the sister of Jonah hill and real life and Jona hill did super bad. This is kind of the women's version of super bad everything in it works, like a charm. You're really going to like that one. Then we have a movie called late night. This is about the TV talk show world and Emma Thompson plays. Probably the only woman on late night TV who hosts her own show, but she's got only men on her writing staff, and then she hires Mindy Kaeling who also wrote the screenplay of this movie, very very funny about what happens when you put women into what basically has been. A male bass they end of doing this. And the combination of Mindy king writing for the great Emma Thompson and watching them perform together is just so you've got to see that one to my favorite kind of thing. The dead. Don't die. You've got to admit that is a great and funny title. It comes from the indie, directing great, Jim Jarmusch. And it's cut people like Bill Murray and Adam driver by zombies. Okay. If Bill Murray is going to go out there and get laughs. Sizing up zombies. I'm going to be there watching him do it. So we have a good chance for laughs horror. I've got to talk about it now because it's not just the Cajun. Oh movie harm movie that makes money any makes people talk and get happy. It's they're everywhere. Now child's play do you? Remember the old child's play movies where you had Chucky. The crazy nut doll that. Always terrified me. Just. This doll who looks kind of little bit weird and freckly, but he has a voice on him like a longshoreman guess who's doing the west now of Chucky Marquel? Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker. And from what I've seen of it in. It's just been a little bit of it. It's wonderfully malevolent, so I'm going to be there to see that one. Then there's Annabel comes home. Another doll another possess doll also part of the conjuring universe where a viewer for Megan Patrick Wilson. Or the demon knowledge is that tried to make sure that nothing bad can come of this horrible doll Annabelle, but Bill will destroy and I will be there to watch her. Do it then them that follow their certain titles that get me them that follow really gets me? And it's about a snake handling church in Appalachia. No, they there are there colts. And they're almost religious cult where people pray. But they have the snakes, and they hold the life thinks pass them on. And you're thinking, what are you tell me about this like CD movie Har movie will guess who the star of this movie is the freshly minted Oscar winner Ogilby Coleman from the favourite, she's tossing those snakes around so irresistible. I think you're gonna love it. Then there's the Nightingale. See it's does not stop. It's har- everywhere. The night and gas from the director, Jennifer Kent who did a thing a couple of years ago called the baba Duke, which gave millions of people nightmares. And now she's back there following a woman who is chasing a convict got to be hooked. And then midsummer midsummer directed by REI Astor who last year gave us hereditary with Toni Collette, a really scary movie. Now, it's at a nine day Swedish holiday where everybody celebrates. But they'll be no celebrating after this one. So we. Got a lot of stuff out there. That's just going to scare us witless. And I couldn't be happier. All right. When summer comes. We think of all the things I've just talked to you about blockbusters comedy horror action, the rock of everything is there, but every even in a season like this. It's all about money and getting us into our theater, there are those movies that can come out entertain us. And also will hear about them at the end of the year when the Oscar nominations come out and the number one movie on that list, and the one that I haven't seen anything of India's of anyone that saw even anything past the trailer is called once upon a time in Hollywood it is written and directed by Quentin Tarantino its stars in order to Capri, oh as a TV star on the wane in Los Angeles. And Brad Pitt as his stunt double whoever thought of
