Nefarious: Steve Deace's Fictional Story That Turned Into Prophecy

"I know you're going to be very interested in as a C. S. Lewis guy. Is in 2016, I wrote a book that I thought was fiction. And 6 years later has turned out, unfortunately, to be prophecy. And I based it off of the screwtape letters, and I decided to take it to a more global scale. Instead of the temptation of individuals, what about a deception of an entire culture? And so I created a character named lord nefarious, a high lord of hell, who was tasked by the devil with the destruction of the United States of America. And in this book, he connects everybody names names. He list movements that he started co opted, why they did it, and he put it all in writing so that the fact we will ignore it. We will not turn away. We will not accept it. We'll think it's fantasy or conspiracy theory. That's how he'll convince his master, the devil, that it was that his plan is irrevocable and successful. Well, we are just about finished brother with the movie version of that. The production team that did unplanned a few years ago, the excellent Planned Parenthood whistleblower style. This is their next movie is the feature film based on this story. And we cast Sean Patrick Flannery as nefarious. I watched the rough cut about 6 weeks ago. And I'm just telling you, I mean, his performance, it was like Nicholson in The Shining kind of stuff, how good it was. And I think, I think it's possible we might have made the most compelling Christian movie since the passion. I think it's going to wreck people, nefarious is going to preach and teach to this culture, but it's going to be from the other side of the looking glass.

Life will deliver something and that brings me back. I don't force myself to the page or to the guitar. I feel it, and it comes back. I don't panic. I definitely am writing less than I used to. I don't feel so I have a lot to prove anymore. The song still come and every couple years I'll keep making records. That's interesting, but you don't worry so much if you're if you're away from the guitar for three weeks, say. That's common. Yeah? Yeah. So you're not the I got to sit down every day with I used to be. I had a lot of catching up to do 'cause I started late. Yeah. But you know, ten records in, I'm kind of like, um. Yeah, I don't write for a publisher with you have to write 21 songs a year to keep your publishing deal. I don't have any of that hanging over me. So all right, one has something to say. When you wrote, I think sweet words for a long time you thought you were describing the other person in a relationship. And you seem to have a lot of those kind of clarifying moments. You realize you're describing yourself. Yeah. And the song flip for you. The aha moment. That's what you want. That's why it's so connected to purpose for me because the song always teaches me. The song is the teacher. I'm the student. Always. It doesn't make sense. It seems paradoxical. Yes, I'm writing it, but it's also writing me. There's a famous Flannery O'Connor quote, it goes something like, I write so I can read it so I can make sense of what I think. Well, songs, I write so I can sing it so I can make sense of what I feel. We've talked about a lot of songs, is that when you like to play to maybe demonstrate some of the things we've talked.

"It's Friday. Eve Thursday, July 15 Good morning to you. You know something? The O bits are not always depressing. I look at the obituaries and often I see stories of really interesting. Wonderful lives. Profiles of people. You Normally see or hear about on the news, and that's the case today, Maureen O Donnell, who is one of the best Feature writers around profiling. John F. Flannery, Chicago lawyer. Listen to this. He obtained the original patent. For the first video tape recorder, which revolutionized TV by allowing live shows to be shared across time zones, with images stored on magnetic tape instead of the lengthy processing required with film. There's sometimes a bit goes on to read this way. Mr Flannery, who worked for nearly 60 years to the law firm Fitch, Even Tabin and Flannery, died Saturday at his Park Ridge home. He was 92. 1960. He had been out of law school only about a year when he got the patent for Impacts Corporation where it was invented. Huge first Ampex through some of its first notice for real. The real tape machines, which Bing Crosby used to record radio shows, and Elvis used in recording his first single at Memphis Legendary Sun studios. That's all right. Impacts unveiled the first video tape recorder in 1956 at a Chicago meeting of the National Association of Radio and Television Broadcasters. Retired partner at the firm James Shuman said Mr Flannery was the one who wrote the patent and shepherded through the U. S Patent office in Washington, D. C. It turned out to be a major product for Ampex, and it started the television industry as we know it today. Early ampex video tape recorders were as big as a stove and cost more than $50,000. They allowed live East Coast television shows from news interviews to American Bandstand to be broadcast at delayed times on the West Coast and West Coast shows could be recorded and shown that viewer friendly times on the East Coast. Before becoming one of the Midwest's top intellectual property lawyers. Young John Flannery grew up on the Northwest side. He got a degree in electrical engineering from the University of Illinois. He served stateside in the Army during the Korean War and got his law degree and 59 from Loyola University. And then there are some comments here from family members talking about how he really loved to see the light bulb go on in in our thinking. Our days. I sit back and think. How would John Flannery solve this problem? John Flannery, Chicago lawyer. Obtained the original patent for the video tape recorder passed away at the age of 92. What an interesting life And what a what a great story in the sun times today. What an interesting person that you have no idea You're living perhaps next door to somebody exactly who really changed all of our lives dramatically with that. Convention, right? I was watching. I forget what show it was Mm and was flipping around, and, uh Caught some show that was done years and years ago, and they were talking about how the show Would be seen.

Here's The Deal With The United Center Vaccination Site In Chicago

"Let's start with governor pritzker. This is what he had to say today about. The vaccine roll out in illinois has neighboring michigan announces. That it will open. Vaccinations everybody starting. In april as we have promised here in illinois and as we have been promised by the federal government that we would reach one hundred thousand doses per day by the middle of march. We've arrived mike flannery. The president says everybody's going to be eligible by may first governor pritzker says we're game here in illinois. Do you believe it i do. I think they the after a rough start. I talk peres. Says a guy who went around to the walmart and cvs is and the to supercenter over one hundred eighth woodland asking. Have you got any leftover back. Seen vaccines for the poor. Things have really gotten a lot better. I've got both my doses of the pfizer vaccine. I think this thing is finally on track. And i see mike flannery down there in beverly get your green tie in the irish flag. You're getting ready for a certain holiday in a few weeks. Megan hickey there's been a lot of confusion at the united center about who exactly has been eligible. The city has changed. Its eligibility standards because so many folks from outside of chicago or signing up as of now who is eligible to get the vaccine at the united center right now. They're still in the one. A one b Young people within the city limits and really the rules changed in the middle of the game because obviously when people started signing up it was a much broader eligibility than that and that was honestly source of a lot of confusion over the weekend and even into monday and tuesday because you know the the eligibility requirements changed in a lot of the people who maybe were outside of chicago who had signed up. Were confused they do. What does my appointment still count. If i go there you know my still going to be able to get my second dose. Are they going to say good luck. Find it somewhere else so there were just a lot. We were getting a lot of confusion about that and you know that on top of some scheduling issues. People getting error messages when they were trying to sign up. You know saying oh no actually. Your appointments been rescheduled and then another email saying disregard that that email was was not It's not accurate so meghan or those. Yeah i'm still ongoing. Or if they have the iron those out we're hearing less you know less confusion about it. I'm i'm not certain that it's been entirely ironed out. I know we asked how many people got error messages. How many people were involved in that which we never actually got a hard number on that but just being out there. I was at the united center. Monday on tuesday monday. Even before you know nations had started a lot of people were complaining about that. But i will say once. They made their way through the vaccination processing came out on the other end. They were so grateful and hopeful and almost had forgotten that they were so Set before they had gone into. Get their shot in greg pratt part of this roll out. The city says now they will be reaching out to the hardest hit zip codes to urge people to come to the united center to get their vaccination. Is that helping at all. drive up the equity numbers. Yeah i think so. I think the making it eligible for neighborhoods like south shore little villages. Ellison is is clearly going to drive that up there are people from those neighborhoods who are signing up for it I think that that's been very helpful. That was major problem in the beginning. It's less of a problem but it's probably one of those things that without more. Without ongoing targeting an ongoing efforts aimed at reaching those communities can very easily all off. Which would be bad. So it's so it's so they're they're working consciously work on an and that's probably a good thing

I we're going to seal off this and then a shark comes out from the pool and grabs him. Yeah dennis yeah that i. I'll be honest. i don't remember a whole lot About about this movie. I just remember that one part. That really stuck with me I i don't know if this is the same scene flannery but it was when they were in that laboratory. I don't know how many times they were in there. And the shark looked like it was dead. They already had the shark. There and the shark was like tranquilizer something but the guy gets. I don't even remember who gets bit but some guy gets close. I think he plays around like he pretends to put his hand in like tease. The t t's all his laboratory friends And there's a very real possibility. I i'm thinking of a different movie and but i think it's deep blue sea. I'm pretty sure i remember. Remember that part is is that what happened like they were teasing it a little bit. I think i think so. I mean. I honestly don't remember every single. Seen it either but i feel like that sounds like that happened but but the main takeaway here is that the guy actually had his arm bitten off and they had to like you. Try to save his life or something But that's what happened at the end of the scene. Do you have any other facts about this movie. No i just I just like it because it's different from the other shark Has its own sort of like most shark movies. The characters are on a boat. And then you know they'll fall into the water but this they're already underneath the water and the sharks you're trying to get in to their laboratories so it's it's just there's it's like a whole 'nother level of scariness I'm seeing here that Harland harland the director He he said that deep blue sea was the hardest film he ever.

Yeah and Just so everyone knows this week redo in shark movies. Not just shark movies. We're doing shark open water horror movies. Thank you so much flannery for bringing to the podcast yet. No do you wanna talk about why you picked this this movie. Yeah this topic yes I would i. I like horror movies in general but shark movies Especially because there's something very creepy about even just a mechanical shark And then furthermore just the fact that underwater things are scary to me. In general i think of the is like a giant grave and if you're underwater there's always a danger of drowning but then if you had a shark into the mix it gets worse so not only could you drown which you can get eaten alive by a monster you know and i'll just the fact that it could really happen as opposed to ghost story movie where i'm not afraid of ghosts They're not real. But i'm afraid of sharks because they are it's like a slasher movie like someone could murder me. A shark could murder me. So that's why. When i was growing up like being in the pool i was scared. There was a shark in the pool so it was. It doesn't make sense because you know sharks can't survive in a pool and The can't fit in those little water. Filters i should have been scared of an alligator instead of a shark but i did have that fear. It was very serious. Every time i was in the deep end i would quickly swim to the side and jump out because you know Or look back really fast. Because i was scared of a shark being there. that's funny. Yeah and i guess. That's that's kinda how. I got better at swimming jumping in as as far as i could..

"We turn now to the gains to be had from those six hundred dollar relief checks. That started going out a couple of weeks ago and when we might expect to start seeing them show up in this economy. Marketplace's merrill cigars been talking to some people about how they are spending or not spending that money. When austin flannery in greenville south carolina got his six hundred dollar check he decided to splurge i on a barbecue dinner with his girlfriend. Brisket beans potato salad iced tea. But meals like seventy bucks then on some clothes like a fifty dollar pair of pants. Then he saw painting at a local store of some french actor from the eighteen hundreds. Who's all dressed up and smoking. A pipe bought that too. And then i went home and i was like man. He needs to be tattooed on me. He looked so elegant. So i got a tattoo of them on his forearm. Another four hundred bucks. When flannery got the first check. In this spring. He used it to pay off medical bills but he had just lost his job. An insurance company since then. He's gotten a new job luckily enough. I'm gonna financial place right now. Where i could afford to have a little bit of fun so i did. One reason. the government is sending out. Checks is so that people like flannery will spend money another is economic relief. I heard from people. Today who used the money to pay for necessities like rent heating oil in san diego catherine alinsky. Her husband got twelve hundred dollars. Some of that went toward just still trying to survive specifically gas and electric. They saved the rest alinsky. A hairstylist and her salon is currently shutdown. Honestly who knows what twenty twenty one is gonna look like for work for me and we always just want to be more prepared than less. A lot of people are using the money to set themselves up financially. Like hector enrico in chicago. Me and my fiancee. We plan to buy a house soon.

Attorney General William Barr resigns

"Attorney. General bill barr is formally resigned. He leaves office next week. A move that shows. How far differed from so many republican veterans in washington who did find themselves ultimately fire by tweet in the trump era sources around bar have been leaking his departure plans for weeks. They're now trying to cast some kind of independent figure who left clashing with trump over issues like voter fraud and keeping that newly revealed hunter biden probe secret before the election. Now let me tell you having covered this throughout the whole period of the trump. doj this is classic bar. It's not unlike the gap between bars letter that offer a muller book report and the actual report which is one of the many misleading and political acts that led so many. Doj veterans across both parties. Demand bar resign long before he did this week. And in addition to that meddling in the mueller probe you had meddling in cases regarding trump allies while bars own resignation letter doubles down on this problem. He falsely described tump trump. doj's own russia probe as an effort to cripple or oust the trump administration with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion. He adds his salute to trump's quote unprecedented achievements for the american people joined now by a former federal prosecutor who has been a keen observer of the bar justice department. John flannery council. Good to see you good to see you days. Well we have the recency effect. Every lawyer knows it in trial you want to leave the jury with that last thought in their mind and it's probably going to be more effective than what you talked about on the first day. Right bar is nothing. If not an effective at times canny lawyer he leaves pointing and sources pointing to his clashes with donald trump. Do you think that's the way to remember him or was it a lot more of that earlier loyalty loyalty. I don't think is the key word for him. I think the words for him is that he's always believed does a federalist and somewhat of a christian cult this that the people really don't know what's best for them and so he really does believe in a monarchical government although it's striking to read his december fourteenth letter of resignation which reads a little bit like a hostage letter. I mean he's talking about how great this guy was abused them in the end because perhaps he couldn't go as far in their bromance in crime as trump was prepared to go. And like you said there's a whole series of things this man has done right after. He assured america he was going to be a great attorney general. Well he's probably the most erupt act of armor attorney general's throughout the history of the united states. That's his mark that's his legacy and he did it because he was not a law enforcement officer he was about his or trump. He did what trump needed to do for that policy. Which i suggest which. I think the embrace which is A government by fiat. I don't have to listen to you. Even congress Supported trump usurping usurping. The court Analyzing and investigating the investigations. That he then misrepresented as you. I said in. The mueller investigation. He has been every place. And i'm among those those thousands of prosecutors who said he should resign while he has belatedly but not for the reasons we said. He's he's obviously said something else but as he's going out the door. He was compromising those convictions. He was compromising are free and fair elections by these bogus statements he made about. We've found this fraud and somewhere along the line. it seems like there must have been an intervention. Somebody maybe a good criminal defense lawyer or someone who's concerned about ethics by which he could retain his bar license said. You have any idea what you're doing. Do you wanna be standing next to this guy. When he's flying to florida on the day of the inauguration or whatever crazy thing he does between now and january fifth or january six or january twentieth and trump He trump inhales the souls of people and guess them to do things that are their worst possible performances. And he's done that with bar. I don't know where bhargava would you like to have his resume he he. He came to this job because he was going to burnish his reputation and his re what could be his retirement years. Well now he's retired and he's done a lot of time in ford at hearings judicial proceedings. That had nothing to do with him. Running the show

Can seaweed help curb global warming?

"This is. Seaweed. Humble stuff. But it does have some remarkable qualities. For one it grows really fast. So the carbon that is part of that, seaweed. Just a few weeks ago with floating in the atmosphere as atmospheric co two driving all the adverse consequences of climate change. For the moment. It's locked safely away in the Seaweed, but we're Nazi we rocks and by the smell of it, it's not far away. Win At routes that co two will be released back to the atmosphere. Wouldn't it be fantastic if we could find a way of keeping that co two locked up long-term and thereby significantly contributing to the climate to solving the climate problem. What I'm talking about here is draw down. It's now become the other half of the climate challenge and that's because we have delayed. So long in terms of addressing climate change that we now have to do two very big and very difficult things at once we have to cut our emissions and clean our energy supply at the same time that we draw significant volumes of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere. If we don't do that about twenty, five percent of the Co two, we put in the air will remain there by human standards forever. So we have to act. This is really a new phase in addressing the climate crisis and it demands new thinking. So got ideas like carbon offsets really don't make sense in the modern era. When you off said something, you say open permit myself to put some greenhouse gases into the atmosphere but then I'll offset by drawing it down when you've got a both cut your emissions android and Co to that thinking doesn't make sense anymore. And when we're talking about drawdown, we're talking about putting large volumes of greenhouse gases particularly co two out of circulation, and to do that, we need a cabin price. We need a significant price that will pay for that service that we'll all benefit from. With almost no progress so far with the second half of the climate challenge, it's not on most people's radar. and. I must say at times I hear people saying I've lost hope that we can do anything about the comet crisis. Life I've had my sleepless nights too. I can tell you. But I'm here today is an ambassador for these humble wait seaweed. It is really I think it has the potential to be a big part of our challenge of addressing the challenge of climate change and a big part of their future. Now, what the scientists are telling us, we need to do over the next eighty odd years to the end of the century is to cut our greenhouse gas emissions by. Three percent every year and draw three tons of CO two out of the atmosphere every year those numbers so much that they baffles. But that's what the scientists tell us we need to do. So. How might we go about drawing down greenhouse gases at a large scale? There's really only two ways of doing it and I've done a very deep dive into drawdown. and. All preempt my announcement. This stuff comes out smelling. Comes up smelling like roses the end of the day it does it's one of the best options, but there are many many possibilities. There a chemical pathways and biological pathways. So to wise really getting the job done the biological pathways a fantastic because the energy source, it's needed to drive them. The Sun is effectively free. We use the sun to dry photosynthesis in plants. Break apart that's the are to and capture the cabin. There are also chemical pathways send ominous, but actually they're not bad at all the difficulty they faces that we have to actually pay. For the energy required to do the job will pay facilitate that energy. Director. Capture is a great example of a chemical pathway people using that right now to take co two out of the atmosphere and manufacturer bio-fuels manufacture plastics. Right progress is being made, but it will be many decades before those chemical pathways. Drawing down a a ton of. Co Two a year. The biological pathways offer a lot more hope I think in the short-term. You've probably heard about reforestation planting trees as a solution to the climate problem you can. It's a fair question. Our way out of this problem by using trees

I'd like to start with reading from your new book, the Devil, all the time It's about the second paragraph from the prologue. So would you just set it up for us? What we have here is A young boy's name is Arvin Eugene Russell and he's following behind his father Willard and there and place called knock him stiff and they're going to Willard's prayer logging as a log in the woods where he Wants to communicate with God and So this is where they are. You know early in the morning and their. have finally reached this log. Willard eased himself down on the high side of the law and motion for his son to kneel beside him in the dead soggy leaves unless he had whiskey running through his veins Willard came to the clearing every morning and evening talk to God. Arvin didn't know which was worse the drinking or the praying. As far back, as he could remember, it seemed that his father had faulted devil all the time. Arvin little with the damp pulled his Co. tighter. He wished he were still in bed even school with always miseries was better than this but it was a Saturday and there was no way to get around it. Through the mostly bare trees beyond the cross Arvin could see whisper smoke rising from a few chimneys, half a mile away four hundred or so people lived in, knock him stiff in nineteen, fifty seven nearly all of them connected by blood through one godforsaken clam or another be it lust were necessity or just plain ignorance along with the tar paper shacks and Cinder Block houses the Holler included two general stores and a Church of Christ in Christian Union and joint known throughout the township as the bullpen. Three days before he'd come home with another black I I, don't condone no fighting just for the hell of it but sometimes, you're just too easy going Willard told him that evening then boys might be bigger than you. But the next time one of them starts his stuff, I want you to finish it. Willard was standing on the porch changing out of his work clothes. He handed Arvin Brown pants stiff with dried blood and Greece. He worked in a slaughterhouse in Greenfield and that day sixteen hundred homes had been butchered a new record for RJ Carol meat-packing. Those boy didn't know yet what he wanted to do when he grew up he was pretty sure he didn't WanNa kill pigs for eleven. Let's Donald Ray pollock reading from his new novel, the Devil, all the time. You know in the reading that you did the father tells the sun that the next time. So many beats him up the sun has to fight back and that seems to be. A recurring theme like in the opening story of your collection of short stories, the collections called knock him stiff. The opening sentence reads my father showed me how to hurt a man one August night at the torch in when I was seven years old it was the only thing he was ever any good at. You certainly seem interested in the idea of a father. Kind of indoctrinating a sun on the need to fight back and then egging on to do it even when it's inappropriate. so was is this a story that played out in your life? Well, not so much in my life I. Mean as far as I don't my dad really didn't push me to fight or anything like that. But you know when I was growing up my father and I had a very Uneasy relationship. You've got to understand my dad was born in one, thousand, nine, hundred, thirty he's still alive. You know he's eighty years old and he's still kicking but He was born in. Nineteen thirty grew up in the depression I went to the eighth grade. He was working on the railroad by the time he was sixteen, and then he was in the navy. And, my dad is a very tough. Hard. man Stra very strong man. As and in contrast to that, my mother is very shy kind. Small Bone woman. and. Either fortunately or unfortunately for me, I took after my mother and I believe. When I was a kid, my dad was. Maybe disappointed for not taking after him more. So. You know that's where I guess part of that comes from it and part of it also comes from. Lived in stiff. That's where I grew up and I saw a lot of other fathers who were you know drinkers and hell raisers and they didn't treat their families very well You know maybe they went and worked for a while and. I got enough money to go on another band or whatever, and pretty much left the family to take care of themselves. So, yeah father's have a pretty rough time and my work I just. It's just. You know I'm a father. You know I have a daughter WHO's I'm thirty years old now and I have always felt that I. Wasn't. As good as I could have been. Her mother and I were divorced when she was very young she was like a year old and and I wasn't around that much and. That's probably the best explanation. I can give for why treat father's like I do my work. Were you bullied in school. You said you, you took after your mother who wouldn't hurt a fly. So and if you were bullied, would you fight back? Did you know how to actually I wasn't bullied in school I? Never really had any problems with that and yeah, I. Mean a would fight back if I had to but. That situation you know didn't come about very much probably you know just. No more than any other normal kid you know might face that sort of thing. But. Yeah. I mean I wasn't really interested in Working on cars or farm or anything like that was more of A. I won't call myself a bookworm because we really didn't have that many books but you know I like to read and watch old movies and drawl and stuff like that and My Dad. Just you know he's a very practical man I mean, even today you know his idea of success is. Owning your own farm, starting your own business or something like that and I know that he probably looks on what I'm doing now is. A pretty useless way to spend your life trying to write books. Would you describe what the town of knock him stiff was like when you were growing up well, when I was growing up there it was. You know relocated for us. Ok we'll knock him stiff. is about thirteen miles west of chillicothe Theo, which is you know southern Ohio. It was its own little place. You know there wasn't much else around there but it was a community There were three small general stores and a bar and a church, and probably four hundred, fifty, five, hundred people now I probably was related to. At least half those people. So did you find this nurturing being in a town where half the people in it were related to you or incredibly claustrophobic? I think when I was a kid when I was a kid I was claustrophobic for me. You know I was one of those kids I was always unsatisfied I always wanted to be. Else and somewhere else. And so from a very early age. You know I was thinking about escaping from the hauler. I just Thought that I'd rather be somewhere else are somewhere else. But where you are as in Chile coffee which is. PHILADELPHIA, which is about thirteen miles away like you got out but you didn't go very far. I, really didn't get out I mean that's the weird contradiction of that whole thing you know i. Wanted to escape and them what I finally got my chance or whatever I. I chose to stay I'm out at knock stiff at least once a week even today Ladder parents go to visit. My parents are still alive. You know I have a brother and two sisters and they all live fairly close to there and So I. Think though as far as escape goes what happened with me was I quit high school when I was seventeen. And I went to work in a meat packing plant much like Weller work, Dan? And then when I was eighteen I moved to Florida you know that was going to be I was going to get away that you know by moving to Florida and I was down are working a job in a nursery and I wasn't making much money or anything only been there a few months my dad called and said. Hey, I can get you a job at the paper mail if you come back up here so. I chose to come back. You know the paper Mills Calling it was union job and great benefits and. And I knew you know for a high school dropout that was probably going to be the best job I. Ever got. You had that job for. How many years did you work at the paper mill? I? was there thirty two years and you didn't start writing till you were around fifty or is that is fifth well I'm fifty six now and I started writing when I was forty five. Okay. So how come it took so long did you know? When you weren't writing did you know that you had that in you? Well. You know I'd always been a big reader as I said and I love books. And I think maybe in the back of my mind, you know always thought writing would be a great way to get by in the world and you know, of course, I was very naive about it. The principal reasons for me you know as far as being a writer were one, you were your own boss. To you could do it anywhere. And three, you made lots of money. Wasn't until actually began writing it. I found out. That was a real true. But I. Think you know Sorta like maybe a fantasy that? It was in the back of my mind for a long time. I had a problem with drinking and for a number of years and you know it was one of those fantasies that when you got half loaded and You started daydreaming or whatever it was. One of those things that you thought about right thought about. But it wasn't really. You know I went to school when I was in my thirties I went to college I went to Ohio University and I ended up with a degree in English and You. Know even while I was there though I wasn't thinking about being a writer I never took any writing workshops or anything like that. But then finally when I was forty five my dad retired from the paper mill. And there was just something about watching him retire and go home. and. You know that was you know pretty much the end of his career and it really. Bothered me and I. Just. decided. I had to try something else you know. To some other way to. Spend the rest of my life. So. When you decided, you wanted to learn how to write what did that mean? Any. Writers or anything in for a while I just sort of scribbled and struggled. And then I'd read an interview with a writer and I can't recall her name now or no it was a lady. But she talked about typing out other people's stories as a means of maybe getting closer to them or just learn how to put a story together. and. So I started doing that. Who did you type out? I typed out a lot of different stories I. I was typing out a story at least once a week and that went on for about a year and a half. So John. cheever hemingway. Flannery. O'Connor Richard. Yates Dennis Johnson the you know the list just goes on and on if it was a story that I really liked and it wasn't. Long I, type it out, and then I carry it around with me for a week and you look at over and you know jot notes on stuff like that, and then I'd throw it away and do another one. Typing a story out, just was a much better way for me to see how you know person puts dial together or you know. Moose from one scene to the next that sort of thing. Was it hard for you to find your subject matter as a writer? Well when I first started. Trying to learn how to write. As. I said like maybe I would copy out John cheever story. So then I would try to write my own story about some East Coast suburbanite having unfair. Something like that or maybe I'd write about a re Rita Andrei debut story, and then I'd write about a Catholic priest. and. So I did that for maybe two years or so and it just wasn't working at all for me. and. Then filing maybe at about two and a half years, I wrote a story that's included in the book. Knock him stiff called back teen. And it's a very short story. and. It's about these two losers sitting in a donut shop. And that was the first thing that I had. Written that I thought wasn't too bad. And so then I increasingly started focusing on you know the people that I knew about instead of nurses, lawyers, that sort of thing that I had absolutely no idea. How to write about There's a passage in your new novel that's about a bus driver and the bus drivers father had gotten a certificate from the railroad for not missing a single day of work in twenty years and bus drivers. Mother always held this up as like what you could do. If you really you know were strive and tried to accomplish something when the bus drivers father died the bus driver hope that that certificate would be buried with his father's. We didn't have to look at it anymore, but instead his mother just like. Put It on the wall, display it in the living room. And then the bus driver thinks it wore on you after a while other people's accomplishments. I love that sentence did you ever feel that way I mean he kochman here seems. So relatively small like a good attendance record and not to knock that. But for that to be like, you know the zenith of somebody's life is. You. but did you feel that way that a war on you? Other People's accomplishments? I don't think that I paid so much attention to other people's. Successes or whatever. But I, know that I was aware you know by the time. I was thirty two or so and I've been working at the mail for about fourteen years. And I knew that all the guys that I had come in with you got hired about the same time as mayor guys even much later than that. You know they own their own home. Maybe. They owned a boat and they had two or three vehicles and they were married and had kids and on and on and on. You know in contrast to them. I've been divorced twice. I'd filed bankruptcy when I got sober I was living in this little very small apartment above this garage. Of. Motel Room and I've been living there for about. Four or five years. I owned a black and white TV that my sister had given me and I had this seventy six chevy that had the whole side of smashed in and that was it. You know for fourteen years of working there. That's what I had. And so you know there was that sense I guess of me just being a failure. Wasn't really that I wasn't jealous of those people or anything like that. I, mean I had enough sense to know that you know where I ended up was my own fault. But there was always that that idea in back of my head that. I could have done more you know I could maybe went to college or something you know. I'm sure you know if I'd wanted to go to school when I was eighteen, my dad would try to help me. and. That's not the route that I chose though how has your life changed? Now as a published writer, you have a collection of short stories. You have a new novel you got a thirty five thousand dollars cash prize, the pen, Robert Bingham Award. So, what's different about your life? well, I have a lot more time to just set on the porch and. Smoke and daydream. Think it's a legitimate. Yeah well, at least that's what I tell my wife. But my life hasn't really changed that much I. Mean I get a lot more emails. Now you know that sort of thing, but you know I still live in the same house I still pretty much. You know my daily routine is. I really can't say that it's changed that much. It's a good life and I'm thrilled that you know I've got a publisher and. You know had at least a little bit of success. You know I know a lot of writers out there a lot of writers out there who are much better than I am. And would. Probably give their left arm. To be setting, you know where I'm setting today. Well Donald Ray, pollock thing you so much for talking with us. Terry I appreciate. It. Made my day. Donald Ray pollock speaking to Terry Gross in twenty eleven.

"Do? carly carly or no no anonymous. I'm sorry anonymous. I mean Karl needs to be heard to okay. Corentin and no therapy. I've been with my husband for thirteen years married for seven. We have three kids together are two boys are twelve and six and our girl is eighteen months just three weeks ago? My husband confessed to me that he was Shoot just three weeks ago. My husband confessed to me that he was unfaithful to me twice over ten years ago. He says it was just a one time thing. And he's a great man who I know made very poor choices so I gave him one condition. We have to go to couples therapy now the quarantine. We've not been able to go to therapy or speak to anyone. Now that the kids are home. Twenty four seven and my husband is working from home. He sleeps in the guest bedroom when I asked him To but sometimes that is not enough some days are good others not so much I have hope for us but we need help and it's hard to get it now. What are some other ways? We can work on our marriage therapy right now. You know what's so hard about that? It's like it's twofold. I is like I love that. He told her like what a gift that like. He gave her because she doesn't have to find out if she didn't have to find out she didn't have to discover it so like that shows right there that he must have just been guilt. Ridden with all this guilt in that. You know he just couldn't live without anymore so we want to tell her and I think that's great that he did that. However now she's in that place where it's all been ally. How could he have said these things to me? How could he have done these things? Oh I bet okay so ten years ago when we were having our one kid and you know when we went to this or one of his birthday party that was a lie and this was a lie because of one incident makes it all a lie for us and that's what's just so like devastating because it's almost like in my mind and I. This is probably the worst thing ever I could ever say but if it was one time I want to. I don't even want to know because I don't want my past to feel like a lie within like but then it is a lie because then that's alive at your like keeping from me so it's such a weird role system. Yeah I was just GonNa ask you and this isn't me believing that this is what should have happened or this isn't me saying this is what I do. This is just me kind of playing devil's advocate just for the topic of conversation and when it's something that happened that long ago you said he must have been just eating away by this Over time I'd still WANNA know for sure but if you look at it from a big picture like stand away from it you know like okay say. He hasn't done anything over ten years and they have these three kids and it's great life. It's also see how difficult it is to get to the point to say something when you're like man. I don't WanNa hurt this person It's so tough it's so tough you can never go wrong telling the truth bottom line never go wrong and I think at the end of the day. That is always the right thing. Yes tell the truth because no matter what if that person like that persons living with that line that shame and for them. That's so important to to tell until I let that go now. The obviously the it's going to end up hurting the spouse or the partner and that's unfortunate but at this very unfair and it's all those things but that is at the end of the day the right thing to do and even though I say I don't want to like even if it's one time I do you do. Yeah it's a it's a do but don't and I think of it like in sex in the city when Steve Treated on Miranda. It was just that unlike in carries like it was just that one time you know and I feel like yes. It was just that one time but Steve. Look how upset he was? He couldn't have that lie and obviously he had to let that go. So I don't know I I would say like ways to help them. I mean it's so hard not kind of being in that space what I would say and what I've learned is that even though maybe to you and I'm not saying that you're doing this. I'm just making this up saying that you might be thinking. Those memories are alive but those memories are still your memories so whatever so like for example. I used to say to Mike all the time you took away my first year of Mare. My first yeah first year marriage in our walking down the aisle so that must have been real. So the marriage wasn't real Jolie's burr all that stuff being pregnant so I let him take those memories for me and my therapist kept saying to me. No you were present there. That doesn't that's not for hit a key. Can't take those memories from you but I I held. I let him have the power to take that memory. Because I'm like he wasn't present and she's like but were you. Were you present? Those memories are still real. Your relationship memory might be taken. Your memory of those things can still be real and also to you know guys in nothing. Just guys like women to when when you're in that relationship I knew I've done this too. I can like you guys said You can and like. I said I've done this to where I have Compartmentalized it. So maybe he was present but like he had A. How do you say that? 'cause I'm like you you weren't you weren't really you are version of you. One version was present. Yeah I mean I can see how one can go over can bleed over into other memories but ultimately you know I was still present at our wedding instill fear in the same thing with our daughter. I know it's hard to believe that because of things that had gone on there were going on but I'll still there in present You know my thing I guess for any kind of How advice again? We're not professionals but early on what did help us. Once we discovered it was the famous chicken. And just to have for when you're in this kind of environment around each other so much where passiveness could be so easy and getting angry with each other and getting shorten defensive with each other having the nightly check in especially at this vulnerable time just to speak on your feelings of farm each other express needs and own anything you need to own for that day and just do go through that again just in case if someone is missed that yes if you if anyone out there has missed that and for anonymous you express your feelings to each other you can just state your feelings and you can do a brief description. Why you're feeling that way. I'm feeling angry feeling hurt. I'm feeling sad feeling happy. I'm feeling whatever it may be you affirm your partner firm them. It could be something as simple as happy. Shit you cooking dinner. Clean up the kitchen to. Hey I appreciate you knocking defensive when I expressed my feelings earlier today or when I was kind of acting mean towards you you didn't you know retaliate Needs you express your knees of you know around things coming up or in that day or in that moment I said. Hey I really need you to be more empathetic and you know maybe apologize again are right. Yeah and then You know own own anything any anything that you did. And just being on the receiving end of things to hear you know especially early on when Gina would sit there and and do all these check ins and own something from that day or recently of Hail to me. I am sorry for being mean towards your being Passover being aggressive and reacting in negative place around being hurt like just receiving her owning that motivated me more to be empathetic So that's the only thing I could really say in this time with no therapy in around each other so much just over communicate those feelings so becomes more natural thing. I love and I'm sorry that Y'all are in that space but I love the fact that you guys are willing to fight for it because I think if two people can will. We believe that if two people Work together you can get through it. Hey Babe I think that's it and you're ready to go kill the parent game by the way. Can we talk about? We do like the next episode. Do like a a. Mommy Dad episode. Just talk like all kids instead do it. Okay all right bye guys see. The tax deadline has been extended to July fifteenth. This year.

"How are you good? How are you oh my Gosh I just WanNa can I start? I loved watching you on dancing with the stars Wiki. So I'm I just got a text from Pasha way per easing up. He's in Staten Island with his with his wife and family. So yeah I mean you did. I was just because Michael is like the biggest office fan that has ever lived in an I. I love you from dancing with the stars are just like you're not only You you were just how do I say it like you were beautiful but yet you were relatable but yet you're funny like you were? You had all of it together and just like an amazing package like one thousand percent. I think you should have one like you were amazing and you relatable and just I loved watching you like you made me happy every time you danced so really that I was in a really unexpected process for me. I didn't expect to enjoy it as much. I didn't like the judging but other united all sorry I get a little concerned about the judges for me and me and Julianne went out at like one time but you know it happens because this is like you put so much work into it. It's like you know you're not a dancer. But you sure as heck fulled me and I thought I loved it so I had a great teacher seriously. pushes a great teacher and I thought he's a great addition to the show and I actually did. I did a bunch of the tour. I just got off the road with the dancing with the stars tour which is crazy. I did on forty-three shows. I supposed to do fifty four but we got pulled off early but it was intact. I gotTa tell Ya I literally. I mean it's a lot we you know. We played radio city. And that's so cool rock and roll bus. I mean got the bedroom so I felt a little twenty but it was still a tough at the start room in the back and if you call it that yes all. The beer cans came rolling back. I love all right. Michael go first of all I I I mean I have a million questions about. I'll start slow. I was asking Gina. That's because Janna was on a on a TV show that ran for a long time once rehill and has his cult following and stuff and obviously the office does in always wonder if people who have had the level of success on a singular show like you have. Do you ever get tired talking about it. I don't know why I had such. It was such a great experience and I feel like the love that people have. Ford is so intense and like they're so invested that I I don't I mean I always wonder like what's I mean. Maybe it's just locked but the writing was so amazing that even if I didn't speak for days when we're shooting I didn't care for it was sterile like it was so smart and I just felt like I'm just so proud of it. I love the people are like consuming it. I like their breeding each sleeping ingredient. Like they can't turn it off freezing. I heard a rumor. You are still waitressing during the show or season. Yeah kept my restaurant job because I wasn't sure if it was going to get picked up we'd all season just six episodes from the first season so I literally covered by shifts during the weekend. I worked my Sunday brunch on. My Gosh thing started air and one customer said to be. Excuse me didn't you just get a hysterectomy Jose what what the Hell No. Actually no actually. That's it up they said. Aren't you lactose intolerant? And I said well thanks. Yes and thanks for not bringing up my hysterectomy. It'd be alliances so weird. I mean got a you know so pretty. Gosh but yeah it was. Yeah it was so so surrounding like you know and then it clearly became clear that the show was going to move forward and ever since like Steve. Steve came out with forty year. Old Virgin signs are up before we started season two. I was like Oh this could be really big so you know and then when when that came out it was like everyone just wanted more. Steve is such a. He's amazing he's we're really. I mean I feel like we wrote on his coattails such a great way for such a long time yes and no at the same as a fan I just yet I mean Steve was amazing. I mean He. He carried such a heavy load on that show and just delivered every time. But I think to your point the writing was so great where I felt like they equally included. Everyone in that cast from you to Kevin Too. I mean every body like had their storylines. You knew so much about every character where they wrote it in it was just like an. Janna was making fun of me. Later in the seasons on Mike were traveling on my crying to the office. Said what she in this comedy while you clouds like. You'll know the whole back story in every so there's so much heart. I thought the Jim Pam thing was always especially beginning with so heartbreaking. I would make me upset as we were in the writer's room just reading reading each episode during the table read. I'd be like he's so bombed when they'd almost get together. There be like you know was just so painful do you have I mean? I'm sure you have a million any specific memory from that. Show that you're like this was just that special day or that special episode for you. Personally well you know it's funny. I feel like Michael's last undies amazing for a number of reasons because that was the walk of shame when Diego and Michael Scott Meredith South. She's in for the night before. Oh yeah that's the first and only time we got to service outside just love the whole exchange thought it was just I just like the whole less is more thing. I love that they never gave up on that. Somebody's when seasons continue with shows character sort of morph. They kind of start talking too much and they get some of the exposition and they sort of lose. What was funny about them wrote. I love that. The raiders never ruined narrative. They didn't you know what I mean. Even if I had a lot to do an episode like license something I still felt like again. That's okay that's enough. We could go back. You know I I never I just I know a lot of actors like they like to count lines and they get a little insecure and I was nervous. I only because I thought I was going to get fired when stuff when likes if y story willing to cut but then I realized it was his great chess game going on and just let them let the writers let the producers play this game like they're doing a great job. Don't match up by being an actor with a complaint for sure but what I appreciate. Your performance is because the yeah. The writers can write all the good stuff I feel like you're the physical comedy you brought to. Your character was very underrated in you know in scenes like when you're being dragged into Rehab from Dwight putting a bag of your head with the bat like everything it's just like your mannerisms that was why the writing was funny is because you made it funny through your delivery in the physical nature of your life will get cut because basically they'd say like well your face sort of said what you're lying was. I was like I get that. We don't need the words if you sort of see my expression you. Kinda get it right. There's the other seats I really really loved. Were When when As Michael Scott proposed to and the sprinklers went off because too many was so great to be a part of like just like. Oh my gosh that whole the departure Michael Scott with for all of us in my boyfriend I met my boyfriend on the show the office and he because he's in the Still photographer grabby. So I'm the time so like he would be in the fake men's room a lot. That's why I'd meet him soon. Yeah so he was in the fake manager of the whole time when police coming through and we have the big. The cat like were lined up before she goes. I went ahead and had seen something great to share las them. Absolutely what are your parents saying? Now because I know they didn't want you to be an actress so are they wasn't real big on this thing. I wanted to be a child stars. They were like that's not gonNA happen. My Dad owned a bar is like okay whatever I think at one point I think about a year before I was forty years old. When I got the so I had been guest. Starring identity of Broadway. I was second city. I mean I had some minor successes that like told me I was doing the right thing but I feel like a year before maybe six months before I got the office. My Dad actually said to me because he was the most supportive he was sort of like. You sure you don't want to do something else. I'm like Oh my God like if you say like oh no kidding But I think at first they they were sort of like we watch big. You barely talked you talk. And then after a while they they on but that was okay so I would not take the call from Philadelphia which was three hours earlier. Because sometimes I wouldn't know what God edited out or in some like. Okay I don't WanNa give set about what's in around. I know I know there's something bigger here so you just have to sort of trust the process. I had to trust the process. They I don't worry. No Yeah what was it for you? That's Kinda stayed in it too because I know sometimes I think about your aunt to you know I mean for me. I'm like Oh who knows if I'll ever book anything ever again. So it's and you kind of like well. Maybe okay what else can I do? So what what was it for you? They were like no like this is this is it and I think I remember like nine eleven. I was waiting tables in Beverly Hills at the same restaurant and we started the office in two thousand four so three years before that and I was doing my comedy act lampshades during every week and and auditioning and sometimes getting some parts here and there. I thought you know it. This is it. This is all this is. I think I'm okay with us like I would with that. 'cause nine eleven was very reflective you know for. I don't know I just feel like a lot of people made really Interesting decisions at that time. I feel like a lot of people got divorced that time or changed jobs but I was like okay. I could live with that. I can really live with that so I think that was just like I just got more and more to nation. Just Kinda did everything I could to any almost. Didn't you're like okay like this is this is good like I'm able to do things here and you didn't put that pressure like I'm a failure because I feel like that's where I know that's where I go where I'm like. Oh it's just hallmark or whatever and I'm constantly saying that and it's like but it's still work and it still you're still acting it's still you're still doing but it's like your dream job that you think it is but I love kind of that outlook to say no. That's that's still great and you're doing well mark because I did a homework. Christmas movie Probably like was it two thousand ten or something like ten years ago. I never. There's great actor that was in In the cast he had. I had one He did movies and stuff is as it was Edward Hermit he played like FDR TV movie in the Seventies. It was like a big deal but anyway he was like a legit dude like he did. I think he was in on all the what is it. What have I got that? I'm trying to think of the movie. That was about the Watergate. And he's been up early seventies movies like really legit dude and I said to him. Oh my God. I'm having such a hard time because I feel like I don't believe myself. This is you know not the way I talk. And he said wasn't he goes. You WanNa your your. We're presenting cheese. You WanNa make the.

"So, what was your favorite episode of office before we get her on because I, just want to get some office knowledge. You can't. There's not one. Anyone will say when season. Nine. When, Dwight and Angela. Are Going to get married. It's like the. One of the last episodes of the whole series. Is She married. No okay. Now, she's a train wreck alcoholic. If I. Two kids, I think drives minivan. She's a animal. She's awesome. So anyways this episode at the end is when Michael. Scott comes back and the perfect timing he pulls out of. That's what she said with tears in his eyes, and it's just like crying on the plane. That! Yeah Actually I think that was when he married Holly. And look over I was like, are you crying? Does the best watching the office telling you man you get invested? Let me ask you this. Because I was thinking before the break. Because I WANNA. Ask Kate this as well but. When someone's on show? Such a popular show that has his following. That's just timeless. As you were to on one tree hill and how big that still is! Do. You ever get tired talking about it never really because it's a show that made you. The Gulf forever be so grateful for one tree. Hill and I love meeting new. Tree Hiller fans. I love it. I'll talk till I'm blue in the face about Winter Hill. I love it. It's good to know because I feel bad. You know now being in this position. We interview people and have those discussions it's. You and I both know what it's like to be on the receiving end in the same questions about certain things and just have to talk about it till you're blue in the face. But it's good. It's refreshing to know that when it comes to something like that career. Wise that you have that appreciation respect for that now. Here's the other side of it. If I was on a show that I was actually the entirely I only bless. Like I only did three seasons, so if I did nine seasons of it or if I did I mean, let's say I was I mean for example, our Buddy Bob surrogate. Know Danny Tanner. EMC Heenan said he's not sick of talking about full tree a full house, but at the same time. If you're height cast in their world, that is what it that's where it get hard for sure, because it's like they only see him, or you know for quite a long time as Danny Tanner. That's why what's his face. Uncle Jesse wanted to do anything but uncle Jesse and he started to do these really dark dramas and Merkazi. He just wanted to be so out of it, but no men believe that were. So. I think that is the only that's but I feel like people like Steve Corral? Don't have that issue because they're already so. Y- but I think even someone like Steve Carell who? Yes we see now how I! He is in his ability to act, but. At the beginning, it was all comedic stuff It was even like Michael Shannon to. WATCHING WITH WACO WHO's? Wasn't. He can comedy to. Not really know. but you know you forty year old, Virgin, and those kind of in Anchorman, and all that kind of stuff he was like. Beside kick, funny random guy. the office I mean he took over, but still it's mostly comedy you know, but now you're seeing month things with a morning show. Before him, no I'm saying. He before he was just kind of this cy part. Like co-star, but he was the star of the office in owned it. Mike took it over as in like delivered every day. but yeah, no, that's refreshing. No, and but even when we talked to Bob before. You know he even said he went through a transition where he was sick of it. Sick of being known as. As Danny Tanner and always being like you said typecast in that, and then he kind of. Later on realized and appreciated it all over again. Especially because of all the streaming services and getting getting new fans like you said you are, you're talking Nutri. Hillary's in the fact that there's teenagers. That are becoming true tree hill fans right now because of streaming services amazing. Yeah, for sure. Interesting. But Yeah I wonder I I don't know. I'm excited I'm excited. Chapter her two, she She's one of seven children, which means she's the Hustler, and yeah I'm excited. Get onto a to me. Break before we. have. Her Colin shows. You ever wondered. How did the smartest marketers cut through the noise I'm.

There's not one anyone will say when season nine when Dwight and Angela are going to get married. It's like the one of the last episodes of the whole series. Is She married? No okay now. She's a train wreck alcoholic. If I two kids I think drives minivan. She's a animal. She's awesome so anyways this episode at the end is when. Michael Scott comes back in the perfect timing he pulls out of. That's what she said with tears in his eyes and it's just like when you're crying on the plane that yeah actually I think that was when he married holly and look over. I was like. Are you crying? Does the best watching the office telling you man you get invested? Let me ask you this because I was thinking before the break because I wanna ask Kate this as well but when someone's on show such a popular show that has his following. That's just timeless as you were to on one tree hill and how big that still is. Do you ever get tired talking about it. Never really show. That made you look off forever. Be So grateful for one Tree Hill and I love meeting new Three Hiller Fans I love it I'll talk till I'm blue in the face about Winter Hill. I love it. It's good to know because I feel bad.

I mean for example our Buddy Bob. Surrogate Danny Tanner. Emc Heenan said. He's not sick of talking about full tree. I mean a full house but at the same time if your height cast in the role that is what it would. That's where it get hard for sure because it's like they only see him or you know for quite a long time as Danny Tanner like that's why What's his face uncle? Jesse wanted to do anything but uncle Jesse and he started to do these really dark dramas and Merkazi. He just wanted to be so out of it but no one believed that were so I think that is the only. That's but I feel like people like Steve Corral. Don't have that issue because they're already so Y- but I think even someone like Steve Carell. Who yes we see now. How I he is in his ability to act but at the beginning it was all comedic stuff It was even like Michael Shannon to watching with WACO. Who's wasn't he can Comedy to not really know But you know you forty year old virgin and those kind of in anchorman and all that kind of stuff. He was like beside kick funny. Random Guy The office I mean he took over but still it's mostly comedy you know but now you're seeing month things with a morning show before him. No I'm saying he before he was just kind of this. Sigh part like co-star but he was the star of the office in owned it. Mike took it over as in like delivered every day But yeah no that's refreshing. No and but even when we talked to Bob before you even said he went through a transition where he was sick of it. Sick of being known as as Danny Tanner and always being like you said typecast in that and then he kind of later on realized and appreciated it all over again especially because of all the streaming services and getting gaining new fans. Like you said you are. You're talking Nutri Hillary's in the fact that there's teenagers that are becoming true tree hill fans right now because of streaming services amazing. Yeah for sure interesting but yeah I wonder I I dunno homicide chapter or two she She's one of seven children which means she's the Hustler And Yeah I'm excited. Get down to a break before we have her colon shows you ever wondered. How did the smartest marketers cut through the noise? I'm.

"Right. Welcome to another podcast of wind down with Michael Costin Jana Kramer. I'm sorry Jana Kramer and Michael Qasim. We're never going to get a good entrance to the show. No PROBABLY NOT. But that's okay. How's Corentin lie? Free bed same old same old. And that's our show so we'll see how no we've been full of just this past week we've been crazy productive. We really have painting rooms Doing staff staff. We painted the The office painted the Barroom. We've painted the office. We Have Kate Flannery O. Today who is married to Dave the hit? Sitcom the office which is probably my top two. Probably my number one actually of all time. What's your second one Seinfeld? That's up there here. What's number two? That's sitcoms but then you have shows like you know what's number two probably Seinfeld. I what what's on what's teetering on three them. Curb your enthusiasm which is all. This is all like the same kind of stuff. Yeah which then you have. You know shows like the wire yet. Dexter you got game around. You got all that kind of stuff. But anyways and I'm I'm really excited. Talk to her because I know her from dancing with stars. Same Season No. She was just on his last season. Yeah but you know. I've never watched an episode of the office so I feel like this podcast should just be like. It's the Mike and kate show featuring I I don't know I just I. I love sweet girl. I feel like I need to see. I think the problem was I. Would you'd be watching it and I would just come in and see a few seconds of it and you'd be like laughing and looking go. I don't understand you gotTA unders. Yeah you gotta understand the characters stories but I but I like Love Seinfeld. I feel like you can watch Seinfeld and laugh at anything. Well the office is the same way if you have seen it before. So like comedy. Central always has the office in rotation constantly. So I could turn on that any moment. It can be any episode and know exactly what's going on and I'll laugh like I did the first time that's awesome. See maybe I 'cause I I really love. Kate and I'm excited to talk to her. Especially because I heard that she wall she was filming the office. She was a waitress still love that. I think that's so cool. I wonder if was it or was I- wanting to do a waitress in job last year. Did I dream? That definitely? Didn't tell me that miss waitressing like I would still do it right now. I would for fun. I mean if I have kids I probably would. I enjoy it. I love waitressing. Until didn't then you quit new. I love it I would do it I seriously. I think if I could. I just I don't know I. I love being able to help people and making their experience great for that. Maybe so crazy but I maybe I had a dream about that but I had a dream that I was applying somewhere for waitressing shop. I swear we're Kerr restaurant where your waitress at a good question? I've done all of them. I've done Joe's crab shack. I've done. Fridays I've done applebee's I've done Greek island. I've done you know I've literally done every but the only ones I haven't done where the real highest like the upper like the one we went to eleven park whatever part of the Mesh Shark. I don't think I would wanna do that kind of restaurant. I was just GonNa say you know I couldn't. It's too stuffy. We'll end said. Would you like your caveat? I couldn't even take your shoot from the hip too much. Where if you went to a restaurant like that next thing you know you don't get that because that's just disgusting That's how you'd be really honest when people came to the Wood. Ranch Grill in In La when I used to waitress there and by the way yes it's one by the Grove and funny story. I was dealing toilet paper before. Covert nineteen me. Indiana were so poor in my. Our Electric City went off. And we're stealing paper toilet paper from wood ranch because we didn't have enough money into violate toilet paper But then I booked prom night in an I quit but yeah anyways but no I would have to be. It would have to be a chill place like that and I wouldn't want to go back to. I didn't like being a bar girl. I hated that because I'm not the the the Bar Check. They're like here's a shot. And then the babe and then. I like throw it away anyways. Well I do feel. I have a lot of empathy for those people in that profession right now because of everything going on in that must that must really suck and I hope you know. They're able to find some work somewhere in and everything and hope people that have lost. Their jobs are able to do something to take care of themselves. And you know I've I've seldom do. I read comments or do we re comments about this podcast or anything really that we post. But I saw one recently when we're talking about the quarantine and someone was kind of going off on us about now. We're being insensitive or something about giving people crap being out and about lately are insensitive that what we were just being insensitive about people being out in public and we're like stay at home. Don't go out but just like anything. Yeah take it with a grain. It's all in context. Yeah take it with a grain of salt. We're not saying everyone should stay in their house and not leave it. All we understand people have to make a living and we are if you're in a central worker and you have to or or you have to make a little money when thousand percent like you know. We're not saying that everyone should stay home and I'm not. I'm not trying to defend what we're saying. I'm just trying to make it clear. So people put it in perspective that Yes we. We appreciate the fact that we've been blessing. We're in a fortunate situation where we can work from home And we're doing okay right now but we totally understand the grind of if you have to work you have to work if you have to make money out to make money. Yeah do what you do to provide for yourself and your family and stay safe so if you got to leave the house do it. But it's all about what we're talking about. Are Those people that we hear about are seeing? That are out in goofing around. Or maybe they don't have to be out or you know abusing the system right now because they are naive about the situation. That's all we're saying I was thinking again. Just everything's GonNa be taken into the right perspective and now I'm reading comments downloaded a month ago and could not get there even went up dude. How vapid and shallow Jaas? I'm sorry that it's like mean tweets. You know so toxic. Oh it's all it's all good. Everyone can have their opinions. Oh for sure are just is don't want people are actual fans listening to the US. If they are in that situation I didn't then to be felt like Isolated from from what saying I didn't want them to take it the incorrect way. Al Care the person who wrote the comment who gives it but yeah so people that care about the show and that we care about almost zanex Queen Mike's Agenda Thrives on chaos seriously can't even function on a daily basis unless she's medicated. What wars he freaks out whines cries and flat out has panic attacks. If she thinks the wind is blowing in the wrong direction she thrives on Zanex. I don't take xanax. So wow why ridiculous people are crazy. I know whatever it is what it is. I feel like the one people that do. Listen now are getting something out of it. T- there the train wreck you love to listen to or that's why you look at reviews almost for anything either five stars or wants to. There's very seldom are people because this is like anything right. Subjective people can have their opinion. It's I'm sure there's some episodes were people who are even shower wasn't my favorite one but hopefully the next week or the week before was great for them but most of the time. This is just like a movie. It's just like a you know music genres just like anything. You like what you like. And if it's in the middle they look people aren't GonNa or if you just listen to one episode like someone goes you know. Jan laughed at Mike for not hustling like. We're we crack on each other. You know but anyways I feel like at the end of the day. Hopefully we're helping people to with some of our situations. We we era dirty laundry to help. Other people You know although the other day though in therapy it's not great to have therapy sessions in quarantine. It's hard when you're on zooming. There's a way out. We're having therapy last week. And it was a great therapy session. Ten minutes last ten minutes and and you know it was like a therapist is like so what are ways the can connect together and how that got us into an argument shocking. But you know within those two minutes might get upset gets up and storms out and berm and therapist is like this is why I hate doing these. These kinds of sessions. Because now you're stuck in the house. And what is he coming back like? No yeah he's like. Is he going to come back now? He's done he's done and he goes. Well how is this? GonNa how is this going to resolve is like one or two things easy. They're gonNA be a whole the rest of the day and you know his chest out and whatever or apologized for being defensive in. We'll talk it out and it was the latter an house. Kinda cool super cool but yeah I was like but no peace and I'm GonNa go now and Greis came back from a walk and I even said to girlfriends up here to see they're going to be a good rest of the day today.

Australia's apocalyptic wildfires continue to rage

"We turn to the crisis already shaping the twenty twenty s and that is the apocalyptic wildfires advised which are decimating Australian flora and fauna. One expert saying that hundreds of millions of animals probably being killed volunteers formed form the backbone of the desperate firefighting effort to control these fast moving flames. The smoke is filling the skies above Australia and even reaching New Zealand earlier. I spoke with Australia's chief climate scientist. Tim flannery professor flannery. Welcome to the program thank you. It is truly a tragedy to see what's happening to your amazing and beautiful country and this has been going on for days weeks and in fact it was no it all started months to go. Give us the state of play as we speak right now. We've had around seventeen million acres of Australia. Burned twenty five people have died in the flames. The impacts on biodiversity of being truly horrific just on kangaroo island off the coast surface area half of the population we think has been killed about a third of the Koala population for the northern half of New South Wales and the species species. That are easy to count. So I think unfortunately the impacts of these on our economy on our by diversity and on just human lives will will be with us for many decades and sadly it's not an end. These dry conditions look set to persist for several months. So why is it that it is so so bad this time around. We have had the driest year on record and it follows the previous year which was very dry as well this she. It has been the hottest year on record by quite a considerable amount about one degree. Fahrenheit and those conditions the part of the long term trajectory of of climate change and if conspired together with a with a windy season to produce these horrific fi conditions which have just gone on and on and I. Should I tell you that this was predicted by climate scientists. I nearly eighty s my own. Climate Council has produced twelve reports warning the government and and warning people of the escalating fire risk and danger in Australia and sadly until it heats very little is done. Are you absolutely sure that this is climate. Climate change caused. Yes absolutely certain the scientists telling us this. It's telling us that these extreme heat conditions we've seen this year might occur naturally once every three hundred and fifty years but once you add the influence of the human immune greenhouse gases. We're likely to see those conditions once every eight years and and of course that number will decline. It will become more frequent as the build up of guesses continues. You as you mentioned started the Climate Council for Australia and just put into perspective for us. How your experience demonstrates the lack of seriousness that certainly this government previous governments have have have taken climate change? Because you if I'm not mistaken have had to raise funds on your own for this very important. Important scientific monitoring system will that's correct. I was Australia's climate commissioner for three years. The first act of the new conservative government in two thousand and thirteen thirteen with me and my commissioners and to take down our website But we felt that the work we doing with so important that we really went to the Australian in public and crowd. Funded the entity Beck into existence today. Where larger and better than ever before but courtesy of the Australian public who understand that we we need to understand the science of climate change? We need to protect ourselves with good advance warning but the government so far hasn't been interested in this. It is truly tragic. I can't tell you how it feels to me to wake up every morning smelling the smoke of my country burning for month after month and and knowing that we could have done something about these head we started ten fifteen years ago. How is this affecting the current? Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Because he's never taken taken these science seriously and I don't even know whether he's agreeing right now. These fires are exacerbated because of climate crisis and climate change age. But how long can he persist in that policy and political stance when the people presumably people who also elected him a feeling. So Oh angry. Obviously we've seen these pictures of him trying to meet with people trying to go to the scenes and people heckling him. Many refused to shake his hand. Far How will you handle more funding to artists. So many people lost their heart becoming. Ah Sadly Cristiana. It's not just our prime minister. We have a significant minority of Australian parliamentarians who who are welded on climate skeptics and even if the seas were lapping day chain and their hair was on fire as a result of climate change. I don't think I changed my mind. And these are people who are deeply committed to a particular cause deeply committed to the burning of fossil fuels. We have this thing in a strategy called the revolving door. These people go. In as lobbyists for the fossil fuel industry they come out of the revolving doors administering conservative government and then they go back in again again and come out on the board of a fossil fuel company the links just so intense. They so interwoven. That I don't think there's a prospect it for change these people. If we want change we have to vote them out and vote in a government that will take action well. Let's just talk about the possibility of trying to get changed in a responsible responsible government but to augment to amplify what you've just said Scott Morrison your current Prime Minister back in two thousand seventeen when he was treasurer of the nation actually held up a lump of coal. And we know that cold Australia's is the biggest exporter but he held it up and we have a little clip of that. This is called Darby Fried. The Treasury is the rule of trump's. It's called by men and women who work and leaving the electorates of those officers from the hundred dollars. The mega behind it would not. It's called that has ensured for one hundred he is the deputy prime joy and energy competitive advantage delivered prosperity to a strident businesses Anderson. Shaw auto industry has remained competitive on a global market. What hope is there when you have this kind of of demonstration of gets Rebecca word one of the better word and addiction and National Addiction? A political addiction to this fossil fuel looks sadly it is a national addiction and the nexus between the fossil fuel industry and the lobbyists and the government is. This is almost complete. It's not exceptional in Australia. For a federal government minister in charge of natural resources and mining. Too when he leaves parliament going to the Board of a fossil fuel company. It's it's a tragic situation. Where self interest is seeing such great damage inflicted upon the people? Oh and the the nature of our country. What about the people who are trying to fight this now? I mean many people around the world won't fully appreciate that. So many of your emergency workers the five fighters of volunteer workers and they have had to put up with something that clearly is as we see now beyond their capacity. What kind of help

about a decade ago that the well my brother Steve what's my oldest brother trees husband had called me a couple times through this and I'd gone down there and and spend some time with him and talk to him and I think that we forget about the this thousand and everything that they go through through all this too because it's not just the attics the suffer from this is the whole family so it's a family disease and we had talked about it a lot in I think there's addiction in every family somewhere in the line and you know with what I've been through I was able to to talk to him and tell him what I've gone through and and you know where I've been because my family had suffered a lot view my addiction yeah I think injuries case that the deal was getting involved and that's a big thing and you you know you got Billy and all these guys that get involved and that's what she read it she just got involved after T. R. C. and I think working at the community house is a blessing because she gets to to work with these people on a daily basis are that are suffering and have no hope and there's nothing like that I mean that is just that's the miracle itself you know I was down around France last night and it's just it's awesome to feed into somebody that has no I love doing twelve step calls and because I love to be in the ditches with them yeah right and when they're hurting and suffering and you don't understand but I do I do brother and you know shris become my sister in recovery and I think we've got a lot closer through addiction into recovery because it there's you know not not everybody understands that's it's just a blessing to be have the gift of recovery and be in in this community and I'm just blessed that you found community house and what you do there and I know you've helped a lot of people and I have been able to put some guys in there that you help so I think it's just awesome what you're doing right now and if can you deal with it yeah I mean we live in a let's face it may we live in a what's in it for me kind of world and when I was a practicing alcoholic as I like to say everything had to be in for me but that's like that's what we get there that's it when you get to work with other people man when you can I mean collie when I get just a message from somebody I don't know from Adam or whatever it is and just like Hey bro I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired what do I do my say man give Flannery shout give Patterson show give these due to shout because it's I'm in it's like you like they like in golf hotel mainly you like you're in golf whether you want to get it like you know we run from our Dixon for the longest time but man you can't run from these cats dude you're gonna get we're going to get clean and sober man you're gonna find out I think one of the awesome things is you never have to be alone again I mean yeah when you're in recovery you know and that's addiction is a lonely is place on the planet you know and I've been right there I was suicidal you know and we don't give up on anybody because miracles happen every day right and I get telephone calls I had one when you were texting me earlier I was on the phone with the father and then mom I got on the phone and it breaks my heart because they don't want to do right what we did you know he's been gone for three days he shows up and all this and and you know it's it's just heartbreaking the family that that you have to talk to that's going through all that and you have to tell him until they're ready there's nothing we can do right and that's tough you know I'd love to get big George to go out there and pick somebody up and yelling and but you know it's not your yeah high I did a twelve step call last week and you know it's it's really tough when they say I know that there's help but I'm not ready yet but they know that we're here and that's the main thing is they know they're not alone and we'll be here when they're ready so I think that's a big big thing to let him know you're not alone you never have to be alone yeah I would be remiss if I didn't say this would just rob's range really fast this is Louis if you're listening is what recovery does man the color brutal Bruce but he's one heck of a guy Bruce cop forty one years forty one years so over forty one years today ma'am and Bruce you know when I met him at close crossing you know seven I seen him get non somebody and I was like I don't want that to be my counselor the god had a different plan for me like he does it's always better than mine and burst was my counselor and you know I just I want to do something this weekend of course that's where I still go to besides my sponsor I'll go see person sat down and talked to him about it he's always been there for me and I think Bruce is one of the most we call an iota of the recovery community right.

Investigators are releasing the first transcripts from their high stakes impeachment interviews showing the world what some witnesses witnesses testified about president trump's Ukraine cream clot you're looking at of course that House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff he was stepping out to the cameras here to recount damning testimony from the former ambassador to Ukraine and banned from Mike Pompeo's deputy at the State Department as one of the first witnesses to this irregular backchannel that the president establish with Rudy Giuliani the degree to which the apparatus of the State Department itself was being used to seek political information for a political local purpose by the President United States tomorrow we are scheduled to release the transcripts of Ambassador Volker earn a Bachelor Sunland and we will continue to release the transcripts in an orderly way Democrats say this orderly release ace of calls and transcripts and everything they have that is supporting the evidence will ultimately deal with the Republicans bluff and what they say are basically bad faith complaints about this probe and processed thus far democrats say that everyone will then see the same interviews the same allegations the same corroboration of trump Giuliani plot it's so concerned career diplomats army officers and other nonpartisan veterans now I'm going to go through right now just a few of the high points. Today's release provides four hundred seventy three pages of of new testimony and it paints a rebuttal to the emerging argument at trump's Ukraine mistake or plot with some sort of simple phone call or just an uncompleted request that's part of the defense that trump allies have lined up but here you have impeachment witnesses like a former ambassador saying Donald trump threatened her for her objections to that infamous July phone call recounting she was shocked and surprise trump would speak about me or any ambassador in that way to a foreign counterpart the point there is that this diplomat was concerned trump was acting more in concert with foreign interests in this shadow agenda then the State Department she details this by going on and showing how a now famous trump loyalist Mr Gordon Sunlen advisor to address these internal attacks on her by going political saying quote you need to go big or go home tweet out there that you support the president and then all these are lives and everything else well that is improper advice career diplomats do not go oh big on public political endorsements anymore than military leaders do both categories of service members steer clear of for example both parties political conventions engines that's just to avoid any perception that currently serving officials at the Pentagon or state are just political partisans then tonight we can also report report on new testimony about the intersection of this shadow foreign policy plot and the president's shadow communications arm because a Fox News anchor who shared a lawyer with the president whose name arose in the Mueller probe is back in the new transcript out tonight this ambassador details how Sean Hannity's attacks on her and his alleged support of aspects of Ukraine plot made it at the highest levels of the State Department where some officials called Hannity seeking any evidence to support basically these red hot allegations against her the testimony stating that these officials asked basically Fox News. Hey what's going on do you have any proof of these kinds of allegations or not and if you have proof tell me and if not stop press reporting can of course draw any kind of pushback or dialogue from the government that itself isn't automatically suspicious but impeachment investigators are probing the theory that this was part of the shadow foreign policy to hijack diplomacy for trump's reelection fox news itself as rebuked handy for for what you see on your screen his appearance at a trump rally which of course makes them look less like an independent reporter and more like trump surrogate so keep all that in mind when you go all the way back to march on Hannity's show which by the way doesn't usually delve into the names of individual ambassadors to all the different countries around the world but on that show they went in named named check this one you have a Novic and that looks especially interesting given what is coming out today that Giuliani and others were trying to oust her letter surfaced I from a senior member of Congress to Secretary Pompeo accusing the current US ambassador in Kiev a bad mouthing the trump administration we also now know that the current United States Ambassador Marie Ivanovich has bad mouth the president of the United States this woman needs to be called home to the idiots that's unhappy show that's trump's big booster lawyer Joe Digenova and that's what they were saying about the ambassador back in the spring we now know here's why I'm showing that tonight and why it came up in today's release testimony we know that wall does public attacks were occurring Fox News taking a sudden interest in a random ambassador Rudy Giuliani was pushing Ukraine plot and that's not all that Fox News Larry just saw there to Geneva who's making that case with Hannity he legally Wrigley represents the conservative writer who was pushing the same Ukraine plot so that's the context for this ambassadors testimony about what looks like a coordinated smear campaign not not only the ouster but to get a bribe out of Ukraine to help trump win reelection now the other new transcript today comes from an aide to Secretary of State Pompeo who criticized the administration for using the State Department for this quote to procure negative political information for domestic purposes and when asked about efforts to quote us the State Department apartment to dig up dirt on political opponent Kinley responds in thirty seven years in the foreign service in different parts of the globe and working on controversial issues ten years back in Washington I had never a scene that I'm joined now by former Federal Prosecutor John Flannery Hawke a former White House and State Department official administration Good evening to both of you know what is the level of significance of these of these disclosures in your view and how unusual are they given your experience to have any of this going on inside the State Department and it's fascinating in a very period reading a political thriller Type Way and it's completely out of line line with how we usually run national security and diplomacy efforts what we're really seeing is how the president and a day by day basis was effectively extorting a foreign in government to be able to advance his own political interests renal damage was a was a career official who's doing her job as best as she knows how she's been trained to do and and Giuliani and his goons that are sick on her to try to make her bend to do the president's specific political bidding that's what we're seeing in the transcript I also find find very fascinating how trump's twitter account has really filtered down to the lowest and highest levels of diplomacy on the same day in which president trump trump there's accounts of how his staff was trying to do a fifteen minute delay and his twitter account suddenly the same day we see a transcript that says an ambassador has to tweet her loyalty and praise of the president is all about his own personal ego and not about the security walk us through what you're getting at there because obviously there are people people are welcome to go out and say whatever they want about great any politicians right people in public life in America the political arm the campaign arm you're saying ah we mentioned earlier in our reporting that the State Department like the Pentagon is supposed to be totally walled off from that and this is the part where we talk about country over party it's actually actually part of the service agreement that Foreign Service officers at the State Department who are the career diplomats military officers over at the Pentagon and the armed force who says they are supposed to be advancing the interests of the country and the policy there is a layer political appointees who tried to steer the ship and the direction that the president may want they're usually work together in concert and not against each other but at no point is it supposed to be praised the dear leader this is what we think it is about praising America America independent whoever holds the White House John Let's stipulate that these officials who many of them we've noted are are bipartisan experience. Say this is terrible terrible bad reform policy people might get fired over it that's all of the policy personnel side but this isn't just that level this is a higher level today these I transcript we've seen tonight ever in the impeachment probe do you see anything in here that hits the higher level of evidence of a high crime yes the thing thing that I was interested in that I didn't realize because I didn't focus at the time when Hannity referenced the Congressman He referenced Congressman Sessions from Texas You may remember that he was the target of the two associates of Rudy Giuliani to receive funds to write the letter attacking advantage so in a moment ago you were talking about kind of the the the rat's nest of how these people are all intertwined gentleman I don't think he said S. maybe I mean I was thinking when you were saying it but so what I see is a connection here and it goes back I like all compulsive lawyers here's I read at least the beginning of Ivanovich testimony and at the beginning of the Republicans who wanted to be in the room we're in the room and they did everything they could to be dilatory into the delay what was going on unsuccessfully but on top of that gave us a sense of what she was going through over there and how they were spreading word that she I was saying some people shouldn't be prosecuted which was ally and this goes back to November of eighteen and coming forward so this is a long campaign and Rudy Giuliani was in there from the beginning as we've learned from other witnesses so I think that th the pieces are here and people fairly read the transcripts all this they saying about could pro quo goes away and all we're faced with bribery and extortion and misconduct but by many more people just talk to John you're saying these transcripts alone we're not up to everyone who was on the call this isn't that part that's not the first hand account of the call the investigators investigators are saying they're releasing as they go but this part you're saying provides what part of the bribery plot well what it provides is we have to get out of the way somebody who would prevent ah rural rudy from doing when he wants to do which is to create the situation for the president to have an easy pass and the twenty twenty election having having them announcing bogus investigate only I'm only slowing you down because there's so much happening here Before I got another lawyer I'm going to bring in with you as if my first lawyer you're saying basically if the briefcase briefcase bribe is getting the Biden investigation some of these diplomats were hearing from now where people in the room who would say don't do that we don't do that and so we're seeing the part of the conspiracy tonight according to these transcripts were first those people had to be cleared out of the room then you bring in abroad yes that's and it looks like they were they were working on parallel tracks but she was always a danger because she was a straight shooter and they he didn't want a straight shooter and they wanted to be rumbling around behind the Green Curtain doing what they were doing both for apparently Rudy's own personal bank account but also oh to help the president get this dirt on Biden and that became especially true in July when he was polling better Biden with polling better in the Democratic Democratic primary opponent both these stay with me as promise I wanNA bring in another lawyer in one with tremendous experience Roberts General Counsel at the NSA senior roles at CIA and Defense Department good evening to you sir a good evening Sir I put the same question to you and without profiling you too much a part of your job is to look at this from the perspective of the Intelligence and security agencies to give you know the tie would go to them typically on your day job right give them a benign nine view of or at least a defense of what happened given your experience in that and you look at what we're seeing in these new transcripts do you see a way that this breaks towards the trump administration or does this look well over the line to me this looks well over the line as a lawyer whenever I hear about a complicated case I always try to put myself in the position of defense counsel what is it that I would argue and I don't see it here and you know the people have objected to to the quid pro quo perhaps because it's Latin a much easier good old Anglo Saxon word is bribery and it's actually mentioned in article two section the three as one of the high crimes and misdemeanors this was an attempt at bribery. Do me a favor and I'll give you four hundred million dollars in military sorry aid yeah you laid out congresswoman Speier who's on the Intelligence Committee making a similar point that you raise their the idea that we are we are looking working potentially here at the allegations of a bribe here's what she said I think that you could make a case for bribery now and I think that discussion needs to be seriously developed and considered because there was an effort to to try to get something of value from misters Alinsky the president of Ukraine Robert how important is it if the Democrats are moving towards making that case and she is on the key committee here that's releasing these transcripts to show that this was a larger plot that there was a premeditated strategy as John and I were just discussing to get anyone who might object out of the room and then

"Today's episode is brought to you by Lexus. You at Lexus. Their greatest curiosity is you because the most amazing machines aren't inspired by machines they're inspired by Dole that's why Lexus asks different questions better questions more human questions like can you see with your ears and the answers are as inspiring as you are which allowing the police to take guns away from people who judge finds dangerous that included ninety four percent of Democrats eighty five percents Republicans and eighty two percent of independent unspoiled this August even President Donald Trump who otherwise mostly has been an opponent of gun control indicated his support for Red Flag laws traumatic end not permanent so far red flag laws have been enacted by seventeen states plus the district Columbia in Florida where a red flag laws medicine is an example of what many advocate as a way to prevent the mass shootings that have increasingly plagued the United States red flag laws are designed to get mental illness or other factors that might show up in the federal instant background check system and prevent the person from buying a gun from a dealer in the first place the problem is that loopholes it as potentially being a threat to themselves or other people police and courts would have the authority to remove firearms according to Flannery Red Flag Laws on people who have felony criminal record or mental health record those rules are too narrow and too broad they identify lots of people because they had an involuntary commitment. We spoke with Jeffrey Swanson a professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine he said we focused all his attention on the point of sale on the other side the National Rifle Association's website criticizes existing Red Flag Laws as violating gun owners Second Amendment Rights Civil Rights and second described scary situation an employee allegedly had confided to a CO worker that if he was fired from his job he would shoot supervisor and other employees though he would warn the eighty five years ago and wouldn't hurt anybody in the also failed to identify people who do pose a risk we also spoke with Daniel J flannery director of the having to charge the employees with the crime the cops obtained a court order and the next day seized five firearms the Court subsequently issued another order allowing authorities introduction of iheartradio hey brain stuff lauren bogle bomb here in California the manager of a car dealership contacted police and worker in advance so the CO worker could escape thanks to the red flag law the California enacted in two thousand fourteen the police could take action in this case right away without on emissions in state records submitted to the background check system have often enabled people who went onto become mass shooters to obtain guns even when they should have been disqualified begun center for Violence Prevention Research and education at Case Western Reserve University he said this is about putting protocols in place so that when an individual is identify them having guns poses a risk and the person has an opportunity to get the weapons back at some point a flannery said there's due process to that so that it's not authorities away to intervene and take guns away from a person who's perceived as a possible threat they can do that even if the person doesn't have a criminal record or a history of being institutionalized destroy a middle ground between protecting public safety and individual rights a person who's flagged isn't arrested or charged with a crime and authorities have to be able to convince a judge that did some strong public support a Washington Post and ABC News poll conducted in early of September two thousand nineteen for example found that eighty six percent of Americans supported enacted in two thousand eighteen in the weight of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting authorities have utilized it to take guns away for more than two thousand people red flag laws have attract to hold onto the weapons for a year that case described an article by University of California Davis researchers that was published in August of two thousand nineteen in the journal Ause of internal Edmund advocates that are against red flag laws say the seizures of these individuals weapons is a violation of the constitutions guaranteed due process which means the people should have the right to argue their case in court before their guns are taken not after and whether or not red flag laws do much to prevent mass shootings is difficult question to answer the study we mentioned that the of this episode conducted by the UC Davis researchers cited twenty-one cases in California in which a court issued an order to seize guns quote after the subject of the order had made a clear declaration of intent to commit a bash shooting or had exhibited behavior suggesting such an intent but it's not really possible all to prove conclusively that any of the individuals actually would have committed such an act Swanson wrote in Washington Post opinion piece that red flag laws aren't necessary early going to prevent killings by mass shooters except in instances in which alerts citizen notices that an angry young man is amassing an arsenal nevertheless Swanson's imports such laws because he and other researchers have found strong evidence that they reduce another sort of gun violence the cumulatively Inflicts Much Higher Death Poll Suicide by firearm in two thousand seventeen he colleagues calculated that for every twenty guns seized through Red Flag Law one suicide is prevented preventing people with the missile to develop suicidal idealization from getting guns does save lives because research shows that people who attempt suicide by other methods and up surviving eighty to ninety percent of the time but with a gun they're effective at killing themselves almost all of the time Swanson said from the picture of public health that's good enough reason for red flag laws today's episode was written by Patrick Jake

Magic Mushrooms: Can Their Mycelia Give Us Safer Plastic Replacements?

"This film called the Kingdom you really must see it won so many international prizes and was made in Australia about fungi the half a kingdom of their own fungi just like the Animal Kingdom and the plant kingdom kingdom and it says in the film in the beginning we mammals had to be warm blooded otherwise fungi would have invaded us. Yes this is the side show. Today we come from Roy Mandalay an expert panel on the magic of mushrooms the I was talking to Brian about an extract from the film which you said amongst other things that none of you would be here if it weren't founder 'cause they were here first and they're so ubiquitous extraordinary that they would have been taking over your primitive body if it weren't for one important thing according to this superb film you have raised raised temperature and because you're warm-blooded these creatures do not infest you but this is highly significant and I find it really extraordinary that so little is known about my Celia other foundry living underground the gigantic now Brian. This is a leading question which the answer's. Yes do you think we've underestimated the importance of this kingdom yes go on very much so so my name's. Brian Pickles and I'm a lecturer in ecology at the University of Reading in the UK as the first guest to talk. I'm going to use the privilege witch of saying that. I'm a fun guy. Yeah that's right. Pun In there I mostly work call nut trees and their special relationship with fungi that link them all up ground incredible. They do all sorts of things. Introduce yourself similarly me and tell me how many my colleges there might be in the country. Does anybody know that's way too many. There's actually one fulltime microbiologist living at the ecology policy of fungi so I've got some medical ecologists agriculture microbiologists as compared to all other zoologists and botanists. We need a few more my collegues south the Ellison Awesome Pool Leo. I'm on a mission to fund infect you all by the end of today or perhaps finally infect your consciousness to try and get funding into our concepts tips of what biodiversity is of what nature is and how fungi actually underpinned the architecture of our soil's and draw the trees and funding other plants and indeed asked together and Gavin. I heard you on the radio with Brian. Yes today. I think it was Jonathon Greene was talking about all sorts of amazing things how you can use them. Where do you come. I'm from my organization.

White House asked McGahn to say Trump didn't obstruct justice

"News on the heart of the obstruction issues facing President Trump, the New York Times reporting within this hour here that twice in the last month, the White House, formerly asked White House counsel, Don Mcgann to declare that Trump never obstructed Justice. The former counsel Mcgann reportedly denying these newly discovered requests. And that the times reports angered the president Mcgann has been of course, Muller's key witness his name appeared more than any other individual in the lengthy redacted report, I'm joined by former federal prosecutor, John Flannery. What do you think of this story? It's a hydra-headed story. Every time we turn and they cut off one head to heads replace it that has to do with some form of obstruction or misconduct or outrageous unconstitutional conduct. Mcgann belongs to the number of lawyers. If we look back to Watergate who are the truth tellers, the ones who stand by their integrity. No matter what the pressure and tell us what happened even despite partisan preferences, perhaps to do otherwise so twice in the recent months. We have Trump going to him and saying say I didn't have struck say I didn't have struck than the report says the twice he declined to do. So because it wasn't true. And then we have the other lawyers we have bar, and we have Rosenstein, and those people who I think will be brought down ultimately. And the saddest thing, of course, is that we have people on the hill that don't think that we're at a point where we should be investigating impeachment. It's outrageous reading for the times article, John and says. They asked twice the White House in the past month for the key witness against President Trump, Don Mcgann to say, he never believed president of structure Justice. I think what's most important about that is that Mr. mcgann's conduct in defying the president's orders to Smoller and calling his own personal lawyer and planning to resign and packing. His things all things we know from the Miller report suggests that he did believe there was at least to put it in a lawyer Lee way, there was at least liability the possibility that he was being asked to participate in a crime. You don't have to call your lawyer every normal day at work at the federal government. Right. Well, I think it says something else that the story has been going then he's he wants us to bring on impeachment. This says exactly the opposite is very concerned to control the evidence to control the subpoenas to control everything because he does not want impeachment. This is a man that gets swatted on the back with a Forbes thing for the money. He doesn't have what do you think he feels about the presidency? He is prepared to do anything. It takes including sending Rudy Giuliani offshore in an unprecedented. Violation of our sanctity is a nation to have them interfere in our election win at the base of this investigation has been that the Russians in interrupted the heavy John. What does it tell you about the strategy coming out of the White House, which does know how to communicate they do have messaging that they view the report as something not to be reckoned with as evidence, but something to be bowled over. In other words, they got bar Rosenstein is I was just discussing before you join me to do this. And then Mcgann would've for them in a sort of a Tri factor that Trump understands headlines, and he figured even even debatable figures if you had enough of them saying, basically, no obstruction. They wouldn't care. The public might not care as much that the report has at least five incidents of obstruction. What it tells us is that they believed that this proves guilt. It also tells us that he believes he's guilty. Because what we call consciousness of guilt is when you're doing something to contradict the evidence that you did something wrong, and he plainly has and he hears the people across the country saying those ten acts or others that we all saw because he does it out in the open. He does all his criminal obstruction out in the open. You a ten year old understands what's going on say without exaggeration. Well, you said a lot important points here. I think the one that was most piercing was the idea that it is precisely they're concerned about what would happen. If all these people spoke publicly talked testified that has them scrambling, which is the opposite of the fake tough.

Bill Hader on Barry | Interview

"Double sized episode of the big picture. This is a conversation show with filmmakers, and we're talking to a few of them today. The first of which you may have heard of his name is Bill hater he is. Of course, the creator the writer producer, and sometime director of a little show called Barry show on HBO that we love here at the wringer. I talked to Bill about making Barry, but more specifically just about movies because men this guy knows a lot about film, and he's really fun to talk to you. He put me on to a bunch of movies. I think if you're interested in the wider world of movies in the history of the medium, you'll enjoy this chat. And then right after that, we're going to have another interview with two people. I really admire the actress Mary Kay place who you may recall from things like the big chill. She was an EMMY winner in the seventies. She's been steadily working as an actress for the last forty years and the critic turned filmmaker and documentarian Ken Jones. Kent's first film as a narrative film maker is called Diane and Mary Kay. The star of that movie, and it's a really beautiful intimate complex portrait of a person nearing the end of their life. And how things change around them as they approach that stage. So please stick around after Bill to listen to that one. But before that, let's go right to Bill Hader. Joined by actor writer, director producer all kinds of stuff ill hater, hey, buddy. How are you? I'm doing good. So bill. This is a show where we talk about movies, and you made a TV show, but you are like the all-time movie buff. Yeah. And so I wanna talk about berry as kind of a filmmaking property. What do you think? Yeah. It'd be great now. Most people kind of friends who were like, it's kinda just, you know, a four hour movie that we've broken up into eight is that how you can send it as like. Well, the way we write it. I had never written in a in a traditional TD writing room writer's room before the only one had really been in outside of Santa live of south park. And finally kind of knew what those guys did. And it was kind of like their their shows have, you know, a three acts, and so you were kind kinda just it was never really written in order. It was kind of. We know this needs to happen. Then at some point this happens, and then towards the end, maybe this happens, and then you're kind of finding scenes at connect these things, and then it all starts changing. So I kind of did that. But with with eight episodes, I would just put one two to four one through eight up on the bore whiteboard. I would just start plotting, and you know, season one it was like, okay. So, you know, end of episode to be really good. If you know, they had this thing for rhyme Addison embarrassed starting to realize, you know, e- seizes father speak in rhyme. Adam's, father speaking, he realizes. Oh, gosh. You know, he didn't you've never seen that side of it before, you know. And then maybe it's good if you know Vaujour's following them that'd be good. You know in the in the, you know, the the way call it his his friends from Chris in those guys military guys they come in around episode. Owed four or five. So question Mark, you know, more friends years, your puzzle PC, and you're just kind of laying it out, but you laid out as a full things. So, you know, by eight it's like, I just know eight forever just had moss versus berry at the end. And we had no idea where that took place or what happened. But I I've felt and we all kind of felt like they should have she should figure it out. You know? So we knew that was at the end of eight at the end of the last episode, but we didn't know how that would happen is that more similar to the way you'd read a movie, I mean, I don't know. I I mean, I everyone has a different way of doing it some people the idea out of outlining is for bowdoin in people. I think because screen play unlike a novel novel can be as long as you want screenplay should be about under twenty pages. And when you're structuring a story for film or. Television. There has to be like structure to it. You know, now that doesn't mean in asked to be kind of like what we do or you know, that kind of Billy wilder thing. Or I, you know, where it was every everything is set a payoff, everything is super clean, and you know, that what by I love that. It's really hard to pull off in. That's why I enjoy that kind of writing. But you know, I mean, I mean, some of the best movies of Hollywood specially in the seventies were really during didn't know where it was going, but they have a structure there. You know, be too great how Ashby movies being there and last detail fron tense purposely last details just kind of a a road movie quest movie quest movie in about these two guys finding their humanity in in and trying to show this guy a good time before he goes to jail in. Kind of forgetting their jobs is in what they've learned military men and all this and an in kind of shedding their the humanity that they have to repress when I put the uniform on and all that, and it's all very emotional. But when you look at it, it's got a really great structure, you know, has a really tight structure now, I don't know if Robert towne took that book, and you know, outlined it in figured it out. But if feels that way, and so sometimes the first draft is like an outline you're kinda like you're writing I've done it both ways we write a draft to something with no outline in it. It's got a lot inspired stuff in it. But it's kind of cranky, you know. Yeah. So then you kind of go over it you show it to a friend in the gonna will head of it there. You know, this would go here what you know in the new you'd try to because you want it to feel kinda we're Ganic. But when you're doing TD showing you got thirty minutes. It's it's kinda hard to do that. Because you have to keep a tight inside frame. It really tight. Yeah. And I'm also just someone I don't like wasting people's time. And so when we got the TV show actually went back and watch TV. But I would I would read short stories was really good. I would want. I would read like Tobias Wolff for Flannery O'Connor any these people and kind of see just pay attention to the structure, you know, in in not that far off the tone of those writers. I feel like to. Yeah. Yeah. Give me and hard to find. As like totally an incredible berry template as far as gets on this incredibly funding in very disturbing at the same time. But you know, trying to understand where the emotions coming from. I think we're Alec Berg, and I worked so well together as I'm kind of all emotion, and he's all logic.

The U.S. And Russia Are Stocking Up On Missiles And Nukes For A Different Kind Of War

"The US has begun production of a new nuclear weapon supporters of the weapons they it's needed to counter Russia, but critics worry it's taking America back to a time when nuclear weapons were more likely to be used NPR's, Jeff Brumfield has more. It wasn't that long ago with the military had plans to use nuclear weapons all over the place July nineteen sixty two these troops were the first hour army's history to engage in tactical exercise supported by live nuclear firepower. That's our KYW footage from the Nevada. Desert. Hundreds of troops rehearsed to the tech. But before they went in they fired a tiny nuclear weapon at a simulated enemy position it detonated perfectly releasing its lethal radiation back, then that was how some thought nuclear war would look nukes small enough to knock out just a couple of city blocks used together with conventional weapons like tanks and troops. Of course, that's not what happened radiation and other factors may nuclear weapons of bad fit for the battlefield, and as the US's conventional strength through battlefield nuclear weapons became less important and the end of the Cold War, the United States said well that was kind of stupid. Why did we have all the? Stuff. Let's get rid of it. Matthew crane is at the Atlantic Council. He also worked on nuclear strategy in the Pentagon, the US dismantled nearly all of its battlefield nuclear weapons. But Russia took a different path. It has kept thousands of battlefield nukes in storage. So today Russia has nuclear landmines nuclear torpedoes, nuclear depth charges nuclear artillery, nuclear short range missiles, and the Trump administration believes Russia would be tempted to use some of these weapons in conflict. If that happened chronic says, the US wouldn't be able to responding kind though only nukes it has left are big weapons designed to fight an apocalyptic nuclear war. So the administration has begun converting an existing larger warhead into a new smaller low-yield weapon. More like the old battlefield nukes. What the low yield nuclear weapons do say, no actually we have a range of options. If you use a low you'll nuke. Earlier weapon we can respond with one two or three of our own. I mean, well, it's insane. That's Jeffrey Lewis a scholar at the Middlebury institute of international studies, who's not a fan of battlefield nukes. The Trump administration's new warheads sits on the same missile that now carries a much more powerful nuclear weapon. So if the US did use it for some reason, all the Russians are going to see is that a missile that only carries nuclear warheads is heading toward Russia and Russian policy as Flannery. Putin has said many times is not to wait for it to land. In other words, Russia could unleash an attack on the US just to be safe or go ole occur is with the International Crisis Group. She says just the existence of smaller US weapons could cost the Russians to take battlefield nukes out of storage. They think wow, we need to deter that. No way are conventional weapons deter that. We have to emphasize the nuclear capability, she says that could end. Up countering the vastly superior conventional forces of the US, they're throwing away advantage. The Trump administration says several of these new smaller weapons will be ready to enter service later this year, but the administration's long-term plans for more battlefield nukes. Face a bigger obstacle. Newly elected Democrats have vowed to block them. Jeff Brumfield NPR news, Washington. This message comes from NPR sponsor. Comcast business.
