Even though he started out shy and unhappy as a child he didn't let that stop him from having a big impact on the world around him. He focused his life on helping. Children grow and learning to be the best they could be. He taught kindness compassion and caring to everyone he ever met. Mr rogers treated everyone like they were his friend and neighbour and only asked the same in return. The world would be a much better place. If more people had the same attitude each day please be kind of a stranger and do something nice for your friends and family. Even these simple acts of kindness can make a big impact on the world. Love and happiness are contagious. As mr rogers once said all of us at some time or other needs help whether we're giving receiving help each one of us has something valuable to bring to this world.

Allows you to manage your schedule in your life a little bit better, so you can. You know you're right? It takes more discipline. and. Guess it depends on your job like do you identify like identify myself probably more with my with what I do, and so it blends into my life a little bit more than maybe maybe other people, and if you had a job that you hated in Boston, it would be willing to intrude on your life. It's undoubtedly harder, but I also think. Some flexibility out of a to. I do think that if we go back when we go back to the office that that there's going to be more, you know flexible. Such scenarios especially when it comes to like parents and having to pick up kids and all that stuff like there. There's already been a moved to to make. The office time more flexible to accommodate that stuff and I think that's going to continue to happen. But I also think. I also think it kind of goes down to like who kind of like spending time alone doesn't. Mean, there's an extrovert introvert thing at play here. Friends of mine who are extroverted like this is fucking shitty. Don't do well when I'm this alone I. My last book I wrote.

"My feelings are hurt because it's not like I need to be in the seat of empire but I've grown used to being in the seat of empire. And it the fact that our divisions with China by the way exacerbated this pandemic that we couldn't work with them. And the fact that we can work with the G twenty in coming up with ways to have a multilateral solution because the guy at the top just won't do it. is so embarrassing. Brian thoughts on the multilateral action that could should would have taken place. You COULDA SHOULDA WOULDA now. M- you have to understand that. This is sort of part of the. Sort of like the old thing. I don't know if you've ever taken castor oil nagging. It makes you poop by belief bar I, Dunno, whatever it is, something's coming out. Okay? Whatever Sunday era, right? There's an excretia. It's sort of like taking Castro oil. You know it's going to be bad. Wanted over. Grades Day. And I think. I've sort of gotten to a point of. You'll find the keys that you lost two weeks ago. Yeah, good good. You have to get to the point of we clearly see. There's a lot of things that were broken. And I will say this was probably the positive thing about having Donald Trump you. President is sort of ripped the scab off of garbage that we've been putting bandaids over like the police system healthcare, the budget our race problem. We can't hide it sorta going over someone's house that has roaches in their bedrooms, trying to pretend like they don't have Rochas, but it's like the fucking Roach man. But. Everyone sees the roaches. We see what the problem is. We can do is come over and just try to gloss on. Put another band aid over the situation and I think once we get back into the global. Arena because clearly, we are out of the global arena. You know they they they they don't tell. Don't Donald Trump stuff, so we're not even in the global arena were just kind of doing our thing when we come back I think it'll be easier to come back more humble. Start from scratch. Guys international community? We fucked up. This is also making me rethink who I am as a guest because I don't think I've ignored as many roaches as I should have in my in my. People out I think I've just screamed like me. Jerk reaction. I couldn't control. Andy Final Word on all this. What are the? What are you want to walk away thinking about this week, look? People wanted to who the bad guy is here like. That's how we're Kinda wired for some reason you know. Is it the Memorial Day Barbecuer? IRS, is it the protesters is it? Is it the president, is it? The governor's and I just fixed on one thing. The bad guy is actually the virus. LARGEST, not the bad guy. The virus is mother. Nature's telling us to slow our butts, down? In the. Nature I mean a-. I take your point though Andy, and that the the real thing that's killing people. Is this so? Here's what here's what the point I'm trying to make Brian and. You make a very interesting metaphysical point that I had to argue with is just that we're looking to point fingers at one another. And it's getting our way of dealing with the situation. We're starting I. Mean every time on Cable TV. My the first question is someone wants me to throw a fastpitch at the governor at the president or something like that we are responsible for how we reacted and I completely agree with Brian that that we have not reacted well and we. Oh, we this is. There's a lot of lessons. We learn about one another here however. This is. At some level, there's a lot of people doing the best. They can someone to get it right. Sometimes, they're doing it wrong. and you know it's A. It's a tough situation. We just a hair more. Empathy were better listeners. Myself included you know we're. We're GONNA. Do Better. Yeah, this exposes a lot of things about us. That are pretty our, but our ability to. sort of new to blame somebody. I don't think it's helpful. But I do it anyway. Well I'm going to do a better job of listening Bhai abruptly ending.

You don't get energy so. I mean speaking of whether or not. We care about Tulsa Oklahoma. Anti Euro to medium article. The, other day in which you said, the crow viruses proving, is it sorry in which you said? The Krona viruses a proving ground for American empathy. What did you mean by that well? So first of all. A lack of empathy because I said I don't care about Tulsa Oklahoma. CARAVEL. Also home and the record I don't need later so that's great that I can get one. but maybe maybe it's a better path not to get you know I I wrote this thing on twitter. Someone had medium has kind enough to summarize my my tweets. As. We're going to we're we're doing well. Is Science like coming up with therapies coming up with vaccines eminent confidence. In our ability to do that where I'm not so confident is our ability to actually care enough about one another to do the right thing, and what I mean by that is, it's becoming clearer and clear that certain populations are much more susceptible. To Getting Corona virus and dying than others, and so if you're older if you're sicker. Person of color, you have a higher propensity to get corona virus and to die from it. There's lots of facts about that now. And back, in March and April everyone was staying inside because everybody was scared, but what happens now when people are like, oh. I'm young white while off. Some combination of those feel is at risk. The virus is still highly infectious. Are People going to going to essentially say I care enough about. My neighbors even if I'm not at risk.

Franois Clemmons: Hi from Mister Rogers' Neighborhood

"There has been so much written about Mister Rogers telling you that if you wanted to stay on the TV show. You could not be out of the closet. Did that make you adjust how you were behaving and presenting in private even in your personal life? Yes because I felt people first of all they show the photograph to friend so I felt an obligation not to be caught in those compromising situations because you see the first time someone told him I had gone to a club down in Pittsburgh called the play pin so I went there with a buddy of mine. We were dancing sweating and I go home. That was the extent of it but evidently somebody took it upon themselves to tell him that the other I've seen there and I felt violated adult man. Who in the world is telling him what? I'm doing what I do when I'm not on the show is my business and yet you ultimately agreed to stay in the closet. If you're GONNA stay on the show that was an emotional slash spiritual decision. I began to feel that I was therefore reason. Not just a happenstance. Once you have this inner feeling that I was at a meeting with destiny that I could not be casual and I couldn't deny what I knew I wasn't going to. I thought about what? What would it be like if you don't hold up your end of the bargain if you don't sacrifice in a way that has honored brings honor so? I really had a sense of obligation and commitment responsibility. Those words they haunted me. And when you say you had a responsibility who or what was that responsibility to the responsibility was to have a good face for white people who are watching this show. People were a little different in how they felt about my being on that show but white people would say all. That's terrible. Mr Rogers was so kind to you and you are gay person. You were caught in that alley that boxed up the back of the truck or somewhere and that's a disgrace. That's what I felt. I could not allowed to happen. We were there any out. Gay Black People in the media at that time No there weren't a lot. No you know who led the band the the European rock singers George and another one who just died. I was that David Bowie. Yes yes yes. Yes yes now. You're asking me specifically about black people. None of these guys are named or black. And I ask that because I didn't know if you ever considered not taking Mr Rogers advice and becoming out because there were so few media the I'm I'm a front runner. I do not care what they think. I'm speaking of my personal opinion. I've been blessed with strength and I will take care of myself. I don't care what they think but I love the man who did Fred Rogers and it would have been very very painful for him to have to go through that whole episode so I sat and I thought about it and I said you can do this you can and you will. I hadn't had love from father and it was so unconditional so bountiful that I sent. I can't give that up. I've never had it now. I've got it and I'm not going to throw it away. I'm not gonNA treat it lightly and casually. I love this man. He's treating me in a way that makes me feel whole makes me feel like a person that I'm wanted and needed and cherished in that community. They became my family all of them. So coming out you would have lost the show. You also would have lost. Your family would have been everything. It would have been a terrible loss. I had pulled in so tight with my stepfather. Beat me up. I said you know their relatives and I can't trust them. I began to allow myself to be feeling to be hillman when Mr Rogers asked you to stay in the closet. If he wanted to be on the show he also suggested that you get married. Would you have gotten married to your ex wife? Had he not suggested yes because he wasn't the only one I think who was advising me. She was my best friend so we hung up all the time all the time. An hour on the telephone was nothing for us and I didn't feel at that time that I was courting her as a lover rather than just simply expressing the this is my friend. I prefer her overall. You guys and you did have a few gay friends who knew you were gay. What was their reaction to you getting married. Oh they were surprised this what. What are you getting married for and I said well. That's my destiny. I think that's my life. I do have a lot of affection for her. And maybe that'll turn into erotic attraction it never did and when I was making love to her I was thinking about my boyfriend or somebody and so it became apparent to me that I had made a serious mistake because she was a very very nice person and she was deserving of a better relationship. And that's what I basically said to her. You know I can't give you can't be the husband that you need a want. I just can't yeah. I felt like a failure I had tried to do something and I was really down in the in the mouth say. I was so depressed that I had tried something big and I had bit off more than I could chew. Did Fred Rogers ever meet any of the menu had relationships with Oh later on he did and I have to tell you. He didn't have anything against gay people. I don't know how to share with you but I didn't have very many relationships with people. I've never lived with anyone except my former wife. I've always lived along not by choice. I think there were only two people that I had very quiet. Demure relationships with that lasted for fifteen years. Each were they quite because you felt that you couldn't come out of the closet fully. Yes in fact one of the sediment don't dress up tonight so they won't recognize you. You won't get any attention and just the two of us can go to this restaurant and this movie and be very quiet loving and cuddly sweet and when did you come out publicly. Maybe about ninety. When I started the Harlem Spiritual Ensemble. I felt very today I was I was holding a big bundle of life. I decided I'm coming out. I don't care who knows it. I'M NOT GONNA hide it. And so from then on people s not very many. I told him yes.

2020 Update

"And welcome to Iroquois history and legends. This is Andrew. We just wanted to give you a short update on where we're at. I know that for almost everyone in the world right now. We're dealing with an unprecedented time in world history never before has so many people been sequestered in every pocket of the planet. Due to the scare about this virus we know looking from history. And as you all educated listeners know the world is full of histories of pandemics and horrible plagues We know how decimated the Hodeidah schone best estimates are other native peoples of North and South America lost upwards of eighty percent of their population due to play in diseases and thankfully. We're not dealing with anything on the scale of that but even still it is a scary proposition realizing that so many of our people that are already dealing with health issues and loved ones that are on the elderly variety and it even affects some people in the younger demographic as well so we know. It's a scary time but just be assured that people will always stick together. They will help each other to quote the great philosopher. Fred Rogers whenever you see something bad happen to the helpers there will always be helpers and we know that's the case no matter what culture nation or community you live in. There will always be people there to help and we hope that you are those people that are helping others. Anyway I wanted to let you know where Caleb and I are at obviously at the time of this recording. New York is one of the epicenters in North America for the disease and Caleb his hands full trying to to do his job to support his family I myself and my family are currently in Asia We are stuck. It's not feasible for us to go back to North America. I had recently moved to Asia to try and do some schooling and that's about exactly when the virus it so we've bounced around from a few countries and currently we are in Malaysia. That is also on lockdown. Now we're not immune from that either. That makes it very difficult for Caleb. Obviously to record together since we're literally on the other side of the planet but that being said even though were from each other and My microphone equipment is in a another country. I thought let's try. Let's try and put something out. Caleb and I being together really doesn't work for us to do a narrative episode for me by myself. It our chemistry. We just need each other But I do have some other co hosts here with me. My two young boys are getting older. And they love hearing the Haudenosaunee Children's stories as much as anyone so they've asked if they could help along with this. So here's what we're going to do The kids and I are going to attempt to put out some more traditional. Iroquois Children's stories during our time in quarantine as long as that is don't expect a huge vast amount. We still got homeschooling for them to do. I still have online classes for my language study. But we thought we'd try that being said. The audio quality is definitely not going to be as good Just because I don't have the wonderful Blue Yeti microphone so we'll be dealing with some subpar speakers but we hope that you and your kids can enjoy these tales and hopefully it'll give us something to do as for the future of the show. Caleb and I will still need to talk about that obviously putting out multiple episodes every few weeks or every few months is Not Feasible right now. We're going to commit to that. After this all blows over Caleb and I would like to do maybe an episode or two to To tie off the vast history of the final two centuries to catch us up to modern day but that remains a lot to be worked out. We thank you everyone for listening. If you know friends or family that are looking for something. Do recommend our podcast. Don't let them binge on Netflix. And all that other stuff give them something productive to do to stretch their brain and learn something new. If you have listened to the entire series well go back and start again believe it or not but Caleb and I do not remember everything that we shared not by a long shot We both have to go back and listen to our hold episodes and be like. Oh Yeah I forgot about that if we can go back and learn stuff that we've already said I'm sure that That you guys would get a lot of knowledge out of going back and listening again. Thank you everyone for listening and look for a new legends episode coming in the future with Andrew. Ezra and maybe even Ethan thank you everyone

Screen Actors Guild Reveals Award Nominees

"Welcome to the frame Steven Cuevas filling in for John Horn our broadcast was preempted today for special coverage of the presidential impeachment proceedings. But we bring you this special podcast addition to talk about the screen actors Guild Award nominations which were announced today and what better person to call on John Horn. WHO's on assignment assignment in New York? Hey John Hey Steven how are you. Okay so let's start with the nominees for outstanding performance by a male actor in a leading role. What do we got so the nominees? He's were Christian. Bale from Ford versus Ferrari Leonardo di Caprio for once upon a time in Hollywood Adam driver from marriage story Joaquin Phoenix from joker car. And then probably the surprise in the category is turned Edgerton. Who Played Elton John and rocket man? If you start looking at who isn't in I think. Probably the most was notable exclusion as Robert Deniro for his lead role in the Irishman. He is getting a lifetime. Achievement Award Screen Actors Guild Award. So maybe that was part of the math but Jonathan Pryce was not nominated from two popes. Adam Sandler was not nominated from uncut gems and also left out of the competition was Antonio Banderas for pain and glory. Yeah it was a little surprised to see Bandera slept out you and I talked about that film and I think we agree that it was kind of career. Defining performance Let's move on to the lead actress. Category Who have their we have Cynthia Areso from? Harriet Scarlett Johansson from marriage story. The neon go from us. Charlie's therein Erin from bombshell and Renee Zellweger from Judy not a lot of surprises there. There were two women of color. The surprise I guess was that that search or Ronin was not nominated for little women some people thought Aquafina might have gotten in from the farewell. In fact little women did really badly today in the screen actors Guild L. Dominations and how about supporting role in the mail categories some pretty juicy performances. There are some really good pegues. Jamie Fox was nominated for Justice mercy. Tom Hanks Sup- Played Fred. Rogers and a Beautiful Day in the neighborhood. A couple of actors from the Irishman Al Pacino. And Joe Patchy and then Brad Pitt from once upon a time in Hollywood I said earlier. Jonathan Pryce was not nominated for playing Pope Francis in the two popes. Anthony Hopkins was not nominated for playing Pope Benedict in the two popes as well and this is also one of those weird categories in terms of. WHO's supporting and WHO's lead? It's one of those things where the studios can kind of say to the screen actors guild and the academy and other words as we think. This person is a lead this person's supporting I mean. They're two popes are mostly onscreen for the the same time. And you have Brad Pitt. Who is up for supporting actor? Leonardo DiCaprio for lead actor and once upon a time in Hollywood. I think he put a stop. Watch on it Leo. Joe Might have like twenty seconds or screen time. I don't know it feels like that's kind of tricky. Math and Tom Hanks's probably star of a beautiful day in the neighborhood. Even though he shares there's Screen time with another character again. The studios got to decide of the actors. Don't vote somebody in that category than they don't get nominated yes. Some people might be especially puzzled by the Tom. Hanks category for him winding up in the supporting actor. Can you explain that a little bit like why why that is well. I think if you look at that that film you can say that even though. It's a movie about Fred Rogers. It's really about the journalist whose life is transformed by meeting with Fred Rogers and something similar happened. In the supporting actress. Category according to Variety Kathy Bates is in this film by Clint Eastwood. Call Richard Jewel rule and she's been getting some awards attention in the supporting actress. Category but according to Variety Warner brothers mistakenly submitted fitted her as a lead actress for the screen actors Guild Awards and she didn't get nominated and she didn't get nominated for supporting actress because they had submitted committed error in probably the wrong category. Well who else do we have in the category of supporting actress. Another pretty strong category. Laura dern from marriage stories Scarlett Johansson another nomination for Joe Joe Rabbit this time and then to actors from bombshell Nicole Kidman and Margot Robbie and finally Jennifer Lopez from Hustler's right. We have so we have Scarlett Johansson nominated for both lead and supporting actress rare A little bit but you know pretty. Good Year for Scarlett Johansson. I don't think you can fault any of those performances. I think they were both really strong. And you know she's playing opposite. Visit Adam driver. Who was nominated for marriage story? Joe Joe Rabbit as we're GONNA say in just a second got a little bit more attention as well so both nominations. I'd say we're served in both. Were in really good films. Let's finish up with the outstanding performance by a cast in a motion picture. Is it true that this winter is often a predictor for the Academy Award Best Picture winner in historically. Yes that has been true but if you look at the last two best picture winner shape of water and green book they weren't even even nominated for the Sag Ensemble Award so yes. It is a good thing to be nominated for in terms of Academy Awards because it's important to note the actress. Branch ranch is the biggest branch in the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. So what the actors do in the screen actors. Guild awards is often a good harbinger of what the Oscar Asker voters might do. So the nominees for on Samba were bombshell. Which I think is a little bit of a surprise? Good news for that film. The Irishman Joe Joe Rabbit once upon a time time in Hollywood and the real surprise in this category was parasite which is a Korean film. It's only the second foreign language film in Sag History. The other one one was life is beautiful to get a nomination for the ensemble award. I think it's really important for parasite. I think it's interesting. THAT MARRIAGE BRIDGE STORY WASN'T NOMINATED FOR ENSEMBLE. Neither was little women and so all the power seemed to be going to parasite right now and I would have to say say once upon a time in Hollywood and the Irishman well there you have it this year's screen actors Guild Award nominations in the film category. John you may resume get your New York theatre going. Thank you Steve. And I'll go do it right now

"My neighbor Tom. Hanks well that's Diane ream. Might recognize voice anywhere are you. I'm just delighted to be talking to you. I know you've been a very very busy man lately. Do you raise late. Came out with a book of short stories titled Uncommon uh-huh and Type Bon. Ask You about one story is. It's titled a Special Weekend Well Everybody asks if any of the stories are autobiographical and and the answer is no outside. It's snippets of behavior that myself observed but a special weekend is The closest Any of the stories are due being representative of me and and also my my family. The stories about a nine year old boy. WHO's about to have its tenth birthday and His mother of WHO does not eh balancer divorce. His mother comes to spend a weekend with him. She comes and picks them up in snazzy sports car and takes them back to their home town that they lived in and he's with with her for a long weekend and he has all sorts of adventures and with her. Then it gets to ride in a plane for the first time on the way home and and although none of none of those things specifically happened to to me and to us it is true that my parents divorced when I was five and they laughed. I didn't was not raised by my mom and we had a series of Of Very nice people. My Dad was married to step step sisters. Or what have you and I I would say that the acceptance the little boy has his name. Is Kenny the acceptance. That Kenny has for his lot in life is is what we all did We we didn't think it was unusual to have moved at early. We lived in ten different houses. By the time I was ten and I was the youngest of three And I had A. I had a younger brother that lives with my mom for his life but we didn't. We definitely thought that that Other than confusing and a constant kind of upheaval. That would come along every eighteen months or sometimes six months or sometimes we stay in a house for. Oh Gosh as much as three years. We thought that that was just kind of kind of the norm. But that did not mean that we weren't aware of some of the bittersweet aspects of it and in the course of writing in writing the story I must say I stumbled upon a brand of empathy for the circumstance. My mom was in at the time. There's a scene being in the in the I call them scenes passage in the book where they passed the neighborhood that they used to live in his old house and he says mom. Can we go by and see our old house and she says sure we can do that. And they go by And for Kenny. Who's nine years old? This is the only other house he's ever we're live in. This is the only other home he's known except for the one he moved into when his father married somebody else and and and move to you know three hundred miles away for for nine year old. He has a warm NAS Taljaare for his past their his bedroom window is and they're the tree is still growing and it's not as big as it used a two and then it looks like the neighbors across the street of moved and the folks next door not at home. Same it's it's not the same but he he has this kind of magical and and special connection that is overtly positive and yet bittersweet because has more than half of his life was was was lived in this house for his mother though who is sitting in the car smoking a cigarette. She's looking at a house. We're all of her. Dreams died horribly. It's the House that she left. She ended up raising Three of the kids for as belongs that marriage lasted and her mother's hooked. Rug was in there and they're they're came the night where the years of extremely bitter compromise in anger and disassociation to her husband began and so for her She's remembering that. The night she left the kids were asleep leap and she didn't see them again for seven weeks and that it's a it's a scar on the landscape her. You know all these. All these short stories are kind of like decks acts of cards that need to have fifty two I realized that A whole a whole suit. The suit of hearts was sort of the mother's mother's story and I had to quit. You know it does make me wonder how having been moved ten times. uh-huh as a young kit at -ffected who you are today in ways. Perhaps both positive tip an egg. You talked a lot about this story and it says though it pours out from you well If you asked my older siblings they would have a completely different take on it than I did. Yeah now they did not have the same Number One Good Nature I think That I did because I always. I always the House House. The House we were in always had some action going in on it because My older brother and sister were sort of like running things so I I got kinda treated as every house was kind of like free time But also I I found myself enjoying the newness of all of our circumstance. I sort of I sort sort of I'm a personality. I guess and for me to walk into a new classroom was actually an opportunity To cut it up a little bit in order a two size things up and find my place in it and you know in some ways seduce some of the other kids that that there because I just had a perspective that they did not have much much Cut Out for you. Oh well I was. I was never one who crossed a authority. I always got the teacher on my side. I will say hey this I think one of the great things that that was quite accidental was When we all started traveling between my dad's house and my mom's house we we did that on a Greyhound bus And it was usually about a four or five hour ride from Oakland where we live up to. The small town called Red Bluff where my mom lived and Because because there were three of us my brother and sister always sat side by side and I would be in a in a third seat and if we got there we got on the bus early I would get the window seat somewhere else and I will tell you on a number of occasions and some sort of malevolent person sat next to me. I remember there was one. There was one young guy who slowly got drunk One One one gentleman gentlemen who started asking me far far too personal questions. Sometimes I'd be by myself but what I had their Diane which is is I think did get an awful lot towards shaping the Uh into what. I consider my day job. which is you know telling stories on film and being an actor and what have you? Is these these trips. Were almost always at night after school or at the end of the day coming home and I had that window that looked out onto the world. Literally the window of the Greyhound bus. which was this rectangle thing that had In the daytime in the waning hours. oftentimes I would look at it. A sunset over the the the hills news and at nighttime the lights of other cars and the railroad tracks in the passing homes and Those days literally farm communities would would roll.

"My neighbor Tom. Hanks well that's Diane ream. Might recognize voice anywhere are you. I'm just delighted to be talking to you. I know you've been a very very busy man lately. Do you raise late. Came out with a book of short stories titled Uncommon uh-huh and Type Bon. Ask You about one story is titled a special weekend well everybody asks if Any of the stories are autobiographical and and the answer is no outside of. It's snippets of behavior that myself observed but a special weekend is The closest Any of the stories are due being representative of music and and also my my family. The stories about a nine year old boy. WHO's about to have its tenth birthday and His mother of WHO does not eh balancer divorce. His mother comes to spend a weekend with him. She comes and picks them up in snazzy sports car and takes them back to their home town that they lived in and he's with with her for a long weekend and he has all sorts of adventures and with her. Then it gets to ride in a plane for the first time on the way home and and although none of none of those things specifically happened to to me and to us it is true that my parents divorced when I was five and they laughed. I didn't was not raised by my mom and we had a series of Of Very nice people. My Dad was married to step step sisters. Or what have you and I I would say that the acceptance the little boy has his name. Is Kenny the acceptance. That Kenny has for his lot in life is is what we all did We we didn't think it was unusual to have moved at early. We lived in ten different houses. By the time I was ten and I was the youngest of three And I had A. I had a younger brother that lived with my mom for his life. But we didn't. We definitely thought that that Other than confusing and a constant kind of upheaval. That would come along every eighteen months or sometimes six months or sometimes we stay in a house for. Oh Gosh as much as three years. We thought that that was just kind of kind of the norm. But that did not mean that we weren't aware of some of the bittersweet aspects of it and in the course of writing in writing the story I must say I stumbled upon a brand of empathy for the circumstance. My mom was in at the time. There's a scene being in the in the I call them scenes passage in the book where they passed the neighborhood that they used to live in his old house and he says mom. Can we go by and see our old house and she says sure we can do that. And they go by And for Kenny. Who's nine years old? This is the only other house he's ever we're live in. This is the only other home he's known except for the one he moved into when his father married somebody else and and and move to you know three hundred miles away for for nine year old. He has a warm NAS Taljaare for his past their his bedroom window is and they're the tree is still growing and it's not as big as it used a two and then it looks like the neighbors across the street of moved and the folks next door not at home. Same it's it's not the same but he he has this kind of magical and and special connection that is overtly positive and yet bittersweet because has more than half of his life was was was lived in this house for his mother though who is sitting in the car smoking a cigarette. She's looking at a house. We're all of her. Dreams died horribly. It's the House that she left. She ended up raising Three of the kids for as belongs that marriage lasted and her mother's hooked. Rug was in there and they're they're they're came the night where the years of extremely bitter compromise in anger and disassociation to her husband began and so for her She's remembering that. The night she left the kids were asleep leap and she didn't see them again for seven weeks and that it's a it's a scar on the landscape her. You know all these. All these short stories are kind of like decks acts of cards that need to have fifty two I realized that A whole a whole suit. The suit of hearts was sort of the mother's mother's story and I had to quit. You know it does make me wonder how having been moved ten times minds as a young kit at -ffected who you are today in ways perhaps both positive tip an egg. You talked a lot about this story and it says though it pours out from you well If you asked my older siblings they would have a completely different take on it than I did. Yeah now they did not have the same Number One Good Nature I think That I did because I always. I always the House House. The House we were in always had some action going in on it because My older brother and sister were sort of like running things so I I got kinda treated as every house was kind of like free time But also I I found myself enjoying the newness of all of our circumstance. I sort of I sort sort of I'm a personality. I guess and for me to walk into a new classroom was actually an opportunity To cut it up a little bit in order a two size things up and find my place in it and you know in some ways seduce some of the other kids that that there because I just had a perspective that they did not have much much Cut Out for you. Oh well I was. I was never one who crossed a authority. I always got the teacher on my side. I will say hey this I think one of the great things that that was quite accidental was When we all started traveling between my dad's house and my mom's house we we did that on a Greyhound bus And it was usually about a four or five hour ride from Oakland where we live up to. The small town called Red Bluff where my mom lived and Because because there were three of us my brother and sister always sat side by side and I would be in a in a third seat and if we got there we got on the bus early I would get the window seat somewhere else and I will tell you on a number of occasions and some sort of malevolent person sat next to me. I remember there was one. There was one young guy who slowly got drunk One One one gentleman gentlemen who started asking me far far too personal questions. Sometimes I'd be by myself but what I had their Diane which is is I think did get an awful lot towards shaping the Uh into what. I consider my day job. which is you know telling stories on film and being an actor and what have you? Is these these trips. Were almost always at night after school or at the end of the day coming home and I had that window that looked out onto the world. Literally the window of the Greyhound bus. which was this rectangle thing that had In the daytime in the waning hours. oftentimes I would look at it. A sunset over the the the hills news and at nighttime the lights of other cars and the railroad tracks in the passing homes and Those days literally farm communities would would roll. Oh by and I I I would be lost in Just imagining of what was going on in those on those trains or on those farms and because because of that I was very comfortable being alone inside a vibrant world of my of my own making There was a great power and and I think An escape in just looking out the window reading my letting my mind. Wander outside of outside of an occasional personality had to deal with Don those Greyhound buses. I I love the time of just being alone and pondering so I want you to listen to a clip from one of my favorite movies and then you can react broker. Are you hungry in compliance thirsty touch the water. No juice hi Lou. Dog Did you have fun with that that was actually one of the hardest hardest jobs to do because We had decided to treat the dog like a dog and we are to say that was a clip from Turner earn his food.

MOM wrote Mr Rogers about it he. He responded with an autographed picture and a letter wishing me. Good luck. Mr Rogers. You are special John. Aw because you're you are. John Wet am marvelous memory and to think that that people oh can use the work that you've that you've given over over the air. I mean that must give you great satisfaction. Diane well know that there are those who are listening to your words and being nourished by them. I so appreciate you're saying you know in fact I've been doing this program now for more than twenty three years. So yes you're you're right. It gives me great satisfaction but also makes me feel very humble to have had the opportunity to go into people's homes cars and offices for all these years. Yeah you've been a radio neighbor to manny indeed need. How do you feel The fact and I must say I regard myself as at times subject of of ridicule because of my voice and because it is so slow and has such a wave ary town to it.

I thought I wonder why people people do that. Because each one of us is unique and That just happens to be who I am. But then one day I was at NBC NBC in New York. And I was walking down the hall corridor and The the man who played on Saturday night live came out and he. He was one of the people who who did Mister Robinson's neighborhood. You know. And he came out and he said the real. Mr Rogers was Eddie. Murphy He's a he said. Oh the real Mr Rogers and he put his arms around me and gave me a big hug and I thought well you really. We have been doing that with with a lot of affection. All right go ahead do that. I mean the people Do they do take off on. Diane ream well. I have a voice problem Mr Rogers. It's called spasmodic.

It's it seems to me that it's exactly what we talk about on the neighborhood all all the time and that is that what's inside is far more important than what's on the outside you know Santa Exupery in his book the Little Prince. Yes said less sauce yell. At abbvie zipped police relates. Your what is essential is invisible to the eye. And he goes on to say that it's only and with the heart that we see clearly and now to Dallas Texas and to George George. Good morning to you. Good Morning Diana good morning Mister Rogers. Good morning short morning. Originally I called with the thought of asking why so you decided early on to make music such a major part of how you communicate with people but as I was sitting here you're listening to the discussion. I began to see a parallel in my life with yours. I was sick early on and I think think a lot of what I am today. I credit to that time when I had to be alone and be comfortable with myself and develop percents of creativity and I wonder if children today lose that with all the commercial games and commercial toys that that are available and don't develop into their full potential because their sense of imagination isn't challenged so basically. It's really two questions. The music imagination. The music I think came from My grandfather he he just his name was mister mcfeely. Incidentally that's why we called our speeding deliveryman mister mcfeely but My grandfather Early on would teach US songs and he played the fiddle and I think a one of the most satisfying times of my life was when I was able bowl to accompany him as he played It was a song called Les Gypsy Gypsy Gypsy.

"Ended this you thank you thank you. I would imagine that those Dartmouth students probably Eh gave you a standing ovation for that. So you know Speaking of television Mr Rogers many any parents have been so concerned about the violent images on television for example the ones that are are real searches. Nine eleven what do you think parents can do to help their children. Make sense of those is kind of images. It's very difficult with being so pervasive but I I think the best thing we can do. Is I try to understand what our children are thinking to try to be good listeners. To begin with I was listening to some children after the nine eleven catastrophe and and I was amazed to discover that many of them thought that that was happening every half hour of the day and night. Right because of the repeats. The news was being rebroadcast over and over again in the children thought this is happening every free minute and they also some of the very young ones thought that it was happening in their town not very far our way and so I I think the best thing we can do for very young children is to first first of all try to understand what their understanding of it is but then to let them know that we will do everything we can Dan as the adults in their life to keep them safe. Even if we're scared we are the adults and we need to be strong as the children are growing and let them know that we really will be in charge art and we will keep them safe in your book the Mr Rogers Parenting Book you talk a little about how children confront their fears through play. Yes I did that a lot when I was sick as a child I made up all sorts of of characters that could Help me through those times and ah I think that that play is one of the most essential ingredients of a child's outs life and to be able to to make up solutions through puppetry or any kind of imagery is an enormous help for a child. I love being able just to to give raw materials for play for children just to see what they do with it. You're talking about simple materials with such as puppets or blocks or that kind of thing. Exactly there are so many parents who are introducing using computers at earlier and earlier ages with computer games. What is is your reaction to those very young children learning these computer games? There are some games that are quite the educational and not scary but there are many that are Quite frightening and I think that it's important for us to to realize that we are the children's parents parents or grandparents or teachers and let them know what we feel. You know children long long to belong. They want to know what their family stands for. They want to know what their school stands four and even if they say oh. I want Dan Dan Dan when you say you know. That's not the way our family works. This is who we are. I think they really love to know that they. They are part of something important. And let's go to the telephones to Westminster Maryland. Good Morning Rebecca Echo. You're on the air. Hello Diane I there. I am just so thrilled and feel so privileged to get to speak to Mr Rogers I I wanted to tell him about his effect on our autistic child back in the seventies when he was In his toddler and later childhood ages there he was so involved with himself and so removed removed from what was going on in the world around him the television could be on all of his siblings excited and laughing and enjoying a program and he would be sitting with his back to everyone and Just self-absorbed Ford but when Mr Rogers came on he would turn and sit and watch the television and he listened and he connected with Mr Rogers and I think that that was a starting point for him to become Less involved with themselves and more involved with some of the things that were around him and he learned to listen and to enjoy other people and enjoy activities as as the years went by he is thirty. Let's see thirty two now. And how is he he is married. Oh I'm sue his own. Who is the most beautiful car and also glad that must make you very very happy mischievous mischievous rogers to hear that kind of comment? Well I must say that Rebecca's call call is the greatest gift that I could have today and I'm I'm speaking speaking in halting way because I'm practically in tears I I didn't know her son personally but to think that he grew up in a family that allowed him to become himself at add a schedule in which he was able to become himself is To me such Gotcha such a blessing and now you see that That he having his own son. I bet vet. He is a compassionate father. He learned compassion over the years but he he grows He's still learns and and he is a very tender hearted boy now and How wonderful father? Oh He loves that baby. Oh I'm so glad you're back doc. I hope you'll give hugs to both him and his little son. Well Mister Rogers are you and all your friends there air you.

You know we haven't planned to use puppets at all all but just for today. Why don't I poke this little tiger through the back of set and we can call call him Daniel in honor of Mrs Daniel and she said Oh that'll be fine so on that first program?

Joe Reed, Brett Rat And Producer discussed on Bill Leff and Wendy Snyder

"A big old mainstream family star with films the past couple of years and could have very simply gone back. Deleted tweets apologized, instead he very strangely doubled down and said, essentially that this wasn't an issue or anything like that. And people just move on. And that only such people more to the point where he out of a ceremony if he had made you've made in earnest apology explained how he has changed. I think they're still would have been controversy have popped up during the night, particularly at Twitter, but ultimately, he would have been okay. But that's not the way things went, Alex. Remember a couple years ago? The show was set to be produced by guy named Brett rat. Cnor who is in. He's a movie producer. He's going to produce the Academy Awards and some things came to light about him. And he very quickly bowed out. Remember that? Yeah. We were actually talking about that in our morning meeting. Our Oscars expert here is Joe Reed. He was bringing up that. It's kind of insane the past ten years the Oscars, which should be a very progressive. Everybody in Hollywood has had very similar issues with people involved in the production twice twice it under a decade. Yeah. That's thing. They really have to work this year fixing. The spotlight is on the way, Alex Golden Globes nominations have come out, and I have found myself loving all ten episodes of the Jim Carey series on Showtime kidding in which he plays a sort of Fred Rogers, mister Rogers type character only with the dark side in the first episode. They show how he's lost one of his kids in a car accident. It's great cash. Judy Greer is in it, and Franklin shelhah and Catherine keener, where do you view, Jim Carey's show kidding?
