Mr. Trump is trying to site civil this civil law I mean civil war, some kind our country, and I, that scares me to death. Who wrote that Tom Friedman wrote the civil wars coming hey josaphat you still there. What are your? What's your sense of the arguably highest than most important Senate races in America is the chair of the Judiciary Committee Lindsay Graham being challenged by Jamie how what's your? What's your sense of the state of the race? I know the polls are pretty close? No. Yeah I don't know I really don't know I don't like the campaign and Mr Wilson's running. It's just it's not high enough. Mr Trump is file VI Elliott he will be the most reviled Preston US history after he's gone, and there's no doubt about that.

Thank you very much for your call keep calling in from South Carolina that's a big race. By the way I haven't seen what the impact Lindsey Graham of all the hypocrisy in terms of taking up the late nomination of Amy County Barrett the one I would argue that it's most embarrassing is The Guy who said use my words against me? When the Merck Arlen thing was pending, he's chair the Judiciary Committee. He's up in a very tight election with an African American Democrat and South Carolina I'm curious to know what impact if any his championing of Barrett's nomination despite his promise and twenty sixteen is having an IV in Providence High Ivy. From the debate last night I feel like I only learned one new thing I already knew that trump well decline. I knew he was a vile racist but at the very end, the debate I think there are videos making the rounds right now on I know what? Conrad? But.

Paris Fashion Week will go ahead this September
"And, finally, on today's program off to Paris to get a roundup of a busy few days in the fashion calendar, I'm joined on the line by Dana Thomas Journalist and author of fashion apples the price of fast fashion the future of clothes always good at talking to maybe just bring us up speed quickly on what has what the show is look like I was in Paris a few weeks ago there was much discussion. Where we're going to be world video presentations again, and many brands saying very committed to actually getting models, and of course, journalists and buyers in seats again and having them walk down a catwalk. What happened. Well some of that's happening. There are shows and people are attending. In fact, there's an official French calendar and on the French calendar, it should it tells who is going to be showing like Gabriella Hurston who is going to be digital chanel showing some people are doing digital. Some people are doing both. The same in Milan summer having shows and some are digital and. I don't know who's attending. I saw that Brian boy the the influence Sir is back in Milan and he's thrilled to be back in. Milan. I saw that on his instagram or his twitter feed but I mean, I know that for example, I contribute to the New York Times magazine is a New York Times as a freelancer, and that team is not coming to Paris spending Friedman's reviewing everything from her home in New York. So you know I know that. Americans aren't really aren't allowed to come to Europe anyway. So there's the whole Chinese can't people can't come to. Europe. A lot of people can't travel. So I, think it's mostly people who are in town who are going I was asked to go to some shows in Paris I have no interest going to watch them on digital. Why do you have no interest I'm curious because you're part of this. You know we're all in this together we that we we have to go out and support and a lot of people say the same thing with sporting events as well. Of course, if the if the guidelines are followed, etc you know. These things tend to drift away and become part of the sideline or do you think that the future is digital? We don't need to go to shows anymore even go into shops. I think that know they're pushing it too soon too fast. I. Think you know we don't need to go into shops and or we don't need to go to fashion shows right now. In fact to me, they feel frivolous and not taking what's going on terribly seriously Yes. We need to boast our our morale a bit by sitting next to people who could have the bro The bug and sitting there with a mask on and you can catch union, catch it through your eyes. You know I don't feel like taking that risk I'd rather be safe and I think that's the most important thing right now.

Talks about how he's got degree New deal so again wasn't fact check Chris Wallace if he were prepared, and it's weird because Chris Wallace took two weeks off to prepare for this debate. And it didn't seem as though he was prepared at all. He was unfamiliar with Joe Biden's record, He was unfamiliar with Joe Biden's positions. He was almost his unfamiliar with Joe Biden's Positions on policies as Joe Biden was something to behold, plus something that the media is bastardizing, which again tells you how little ammunition President Trump actually gave them. They're trying to say that he refused to condemn white supremacists. He refused to what we actually if you listen to the clip he did.

Trump insists he did "The best job" on Pandemic, despite death rate figures
"Get some analysis right now from the former CDC director Dr Tom Friedman a doctor Freidan. Thank you so much for joining us and as you heard, the president is insisting he has done what he calls the best job responding to this pandemic. You say the US is a global laggard on this front. So what led you to reach a very different conclusion than the president. The US has a history of very effective health and public health action in this country and around the world, and yet our death rate is five times the death rate of Germany and even a greater proportion higher to south. Korea or other countries that have really crushed the curve Singapore new, Zealand Iceland but comparison with Germany. Another developed country with a decentralized government that faced the virus coming. In. That's really what we could have done. We could have had one fifth the deaths we have had and part of this is a failure to communicate wolf. It's interesting to hear the discussion of panic because this has been studied, we know how to prevent panic when it comes to health emergencies. These are the principles of public health risk communication there five of them be I be right. Be Credible be empathetic and give people concrete practical things to do to protect themselves their families and their communities. These are five essential things. If you don't give people concrete practical useful things do they will do other things that aren't useful and constructive but underlying all of this I think is the failure to recognize that we are all in this together, we can still do better we can control the virus, we can save lives, we can get jobs back, but that means having an organized response that means leveling with the American people telling people what we know when we know it
Shadow Immigration System: Migrant Children Detained In Hotels By Private Contractors
"Began, the Trump Administration has set up a shadow immigration system on the U. S. Mexico border. Private contractors detain Children in hotels Before they're sent to their home countries.

Income Share Agreements - Good For Students or Investors?
"Welcome money for the rest of us. This is a personal finance show on money how it works, how to invest it and how to live without worrying about it. We host David Stein today's episode three seven. It's titled Income Share Agreements. Good for students. Or. Investors. Over five years ago and upset forty-five of money for the rest of us. I introduced income share agreement as a way to partially fund college. An income share agreement is a contract where individuals agree to pay a certain percentage of their income for a set period of time in exchange for an upfront payment that is usually used to pay for education cost but can be used for other things. For example, a line income share funding says that you can get an essay for home repairs, debt consolidation, paying a medical bill or even planning your wedding. Not sure I would do it income share agreement for most of those things. They are traditionally us to invest in what is known as human capital, our ability to earn money by getting more. Education. Another name for income share agreements is human capital contracts. Income share agreements were first proposed by the economist Milton Freeman in a nineteen, fifty, five essay titled The Role of Government in education. He wrote vocational or professional education is a form of investment in human capital precisely analogous to investment in machinery buildings are forms, of non human capital. Its function is to raise economic productivity of the human being. If it does. So the individual is rewarded in a free enterprise society by receiving a higher return for his services than he would. Be Able to command. We discussed this concept summit upset to forty five is college worth it. And determined, there is a positive financial return in investing in human capital. By attending college, you can earn more, you build your social capital, your network you gain knowledge. Having a college degree allows you to pass filters that many companies put in place with their hiring practice in that, they only hire individuals with college degrees. Freeman continued. If a fixed money loan is made to finance investment in physical capital, the lender can get some security for his loan in the form of a mortgage or a residual claim to the physical asset itself, and he can count on realizing at least part of its investment in case of necessity by selling the physical asset. In other words, the lender has some collateral that could be sold in the case of default. But Freeman a problem if the loan is made to invest in human capital. He writes the lender clearly cannot get any comparable security in a non slave state the individual embodying the investment cannot be bought and sold. Freeman then pointed out that because there isn't collateral that the interest rate charged on student loan would have to be sufficiently high to compensate for the capital loss because there wouldn't be collateral and that the interest rate would have to be so high making the loans unattractive to borrowers. Now. A solution was found. Federal guaranteed student loans. The total US Student Loan Dad. Private and federal is one point six, four, trillion dollars. Only a hundred and twenty, four, billion of that one point six trillion is private. The average federal student loan debt balance is thirty, five, thousand dollars and the default rate is high. Eleven point one percent. It's particularly challenging for individuals that have taken on a lot of student loan debt to pay off. A Brookings Institution study from two thousand eighteen found that the median borrower who had less than fifty thousand dollars in student loan debt in the early two thousands paid off the debt within ten years. While the median borrower, they had more than fifty thousand dollars in student loan debt ten years later still owed about seventy, five percent and most of the students falling behind on their student loan debt are those that have a balanced greater than fifty thousand dollars. Friedman's proposed solution income share agreements. They weren't necessarily called that, but he said that. A contract could be structure where an investor would buy a share in an individual's earnings prospects. To advance him, the funds needed to finance his training on condition that he agreed to pay the lender a specified fraction of his future earnings. In this way Friedman wrote, a lender would get back more than his initial investment from relatively successful individuals which would compensate for the failure to recoup his original investment from the unsuccessful. There seems no legal obstacle to private contracts of this kind even though they are economically equivalent to the purchase of a share in an individual's earning capacity and thus to partial slavery. These. Agreements have been criticized perhaps not slavery, but certainly indentured servitude. Although Miguel Palacios yet us in his book investing in Human Capital felt that the analogy to slavery or indentured servitude was incorrect because the students retain the full freedom of action they're not forced to stay in a given job or even a work in the field in which they trained in. So they have the ability to to work anywhere they want.
Big Tech Funds a Think Tank Pushing for Fewer Rules. For Big Tech.
"Dig. Tech firms are schmoozing regulators into to not doing their jobs. Thirty four anti-trust officials were wined and nine last year by the global anti-trust into the suit, a part of the Antonin Scalia Law School at George. Mason University in Fairfax Virginia basically don't regulate us. Please enjoy this delicious meal. Global Antitrust Institute is funded mostly entirely by big companies affiliated foundations including Amazon Google qualcomm George Mason I covered it when I was at the Washington, Post they were always doing this kind of thing like putting up, you know. Being very friendly to corporate corporate citizens as I recall during this time when they were just getting started. Trying to attract a bigger level of professor there and so talk about this Mr Academics in terms of these things that get funded at universities, you institute Scott. Galloway Institute of Jabal Thank for example. That's right. like it's it's were. Universities are not immune from the lure of capitalism and a big component of. Your ability to get tenure is to get research funded, and it's difficult if you WANNA know. If. You WanNa. Know the outcome and a conclusion of research. Just find who's paid for it. Yeah, and in the case of most academic research. It's a lot of times it's funded. By nonpartisan sources are the university itself, and so if there is a a lease bad version of peer reviewed research, you're GONNA. Find it typically universities, but these think tanks if they're funded by. Certain And we have him on the left care we fund. We found groups to do research to basically support our know our narrative so i. don't think this is anything unusual. The question is abound power in that is. In addition to this think tank Sarah now more fulltime Amazon. Lobbyists making I would bet somewhere between four hundred eight hundred thousand dollars a year. Then there are sitting US senators now one hundred full time lobbyist from Amazon living in DC, taking all of these nice women and men to to golf into dinner and saying hey, we just a big fan of your leadership. We fight to get involved in your campaign by the way when this whole antitrust off comes up. We assume that you're you're for capitalism. Your four consumer lower consumer prices. And this is the danger, but I don't think these think tanks. We have on both sides nervous now whenever I time talking to one today and I was like Oh, where did you get your money? Like I never thought this like in terms of. The university and I was like I'm going to have to check in case, I'm. Saying something that sounded reasonable, but it was sort of like who's paying your bills and you know there was some controversy around some of this Kobe testing of where these these researchers have, it just feels like a lot of steph feels. Bogus like. It feels bogus when they're doing this and they're trying to influence, but I think many some universities are doing real research. Others are much more pay for play and I think that's that's really when I was a does. You've inspired her synapse farmer talking about this when I was? Five years into my Nyu Kerr invited me to a meeting where they were talking about doing some research about around financial markets and the impact on IPO's and They admitted meeting. And there was someone from the Nasdaq, and they were willing to fund it Funds Research and fund even fund center, and as one of the guys in the meeting Professor Bruce Buchanan who I think's one of the clear blue flame thinking economists in the world you know at the end of the meeting, said a not comfortable with the Nasdaq taking money. Money from the Nasdaq for research around the financial markets, because ultimately we're. GonNa end up saying that that the Nasdaq has the right you know. He just wasn't comfortable with private enterprise being injected into academic research, and then the meeting ended and I was like what the hell are you thinking? We have an opportunity to go great research here. Don't so pedantic. And as I've thought about it I'm wrong and he was right. Yeah, you can't help it. You can't help, but if they're paying for like all the smoking ones so much damage in terms of like smoking wants. We're like cigarettes aren't bad. That went on for a long time and Whatever the whatever the research is, it just seems like if it's cooked, it's cooked then. How do you pay for like the university should presumably just pay. Pay For right and live and die on the quality of the research, but that's sort of naive. I suspect you in the majority of about any sort of fifteen year overdue apology to a Professor Buchanan Vice. Chancellor Ingo Walter felt the same way that this was just. This creates too much opportunity for bias research so anyways. Net Net in it's a sample size of one, but Nyu takes that got role being a neutral arbiter very seriously. and. You have these funding you know. I'm thinking of all the different organizations are they seem like the like their criminal justice stuff Very Friedman! It feels like it's really good research right now, and that's the thing it's like who you have. They should at least be very clear about who's paying for it, so you know and and what they might turf. What what the what reports they might put in the drawer like the government is doing right now,

We say we royally. We are here with. With Roger Nygaard today who you may remember if you've listened to the entire show, you were the guest for our eighth episode. Eighth Episode Ever Wow if anybody's listening and his listen to every show since then you deserve a medal. Yeah, because a lot of shows, people have, and they deserve medals. Yeah, or at least a merit badge, a ribbon. Yeah, that was back in two thousand eleven when we started and we were talking to you then about. About the nature of existence, a documentary that you had created at that time you were exploring the depths of why we're here. All these deep questions was eighty, four, eighty three. There were a lot of questions. Yeah, I had a somewhere above eighty ninety questions that I asked everybody all my interview subjects, and squeezed it all into one documentary called the nature of existence. My core question, though above all those sub questions was. Why do we exist? What is our purpose here? Why are we supposed to do big topic in I? Set out to solve it and you did age-old existentialist question philosophers have been wrestling with it for centuries and I went out and solved. You didn't give away the answer on that episode, so you still have to watch that documentary. If you want to know the answer, but it's very socratic in that you, the the what I try to do is lead the viewer in a direction, so you can make your own decision or come to a realization on your own without me. Preaching to you, here's the answer well. That's smart. Because I think you were right to resist. Giving it on a silver platter because it doesn't work that way. However, when I made my next documentary, we may talk about today. The truth about marriage at the end I just stood up and said okay. Here's the answer. In case you missed it. Stop everything here. It is, and you did okay, so it's an eighty two minute documentary, the truth about marriage and you do you solve it? You talk to lots of experts and a lot of couples. Trying to think of couples as the correct collective term, yeah couples, but there's some complicated dynamic, because not everybody's relationship is the same. That's not a pejorative yet, but at the end of the documentary. Yes, you do solve it exactly what the truth is about marriage. I didn't know the answer when I sent out and I I become obsessed with what I'm doing wrong way. I'm such a failure. Hold on, you're leading me into interesting conversation and I haven't finished. Finished introducing you yet? We should also say by the way on that episode when we talk you us. I realized that was the first time that carried the name swap.

Deal of the Century: Jason Greenblatt, the Heart of the Deal
"Was one of the chief architects. I worked very closely with two good friends of mine. Jared Kushner president trump's son-in-law and senior adviser to president trump. As, well as our friend, ambassador David Friedman the US ambassador to Israel. And I would agree with you that it's an opportunity to the next generation, but I would say aides and opportunity for the next generation of everybody in the region, Israelis Palestinians and all of our countries that surround them. I think that people have come to the realization that the past peace efforts have failed. They are unlikely to succeed, and what we have presented is a very detailed very lengthy plan that could show everybody what the compromises are. That are necessary in order to achieve peace and I think that the younger generation in the region is ready for this I think that believe that the Palestinian people deserve something so much better than the half I think that if we succeed, if peace is achieved, everybody in the region can benefit from it tremendously now it's as if in anticipation of the Palestinian. Authority's rejection of the plan. You'd also consulted with Palestinian people on the ground. I guess ground groundswell is also the key to making peace. It's in the hearts of the people as well as the leadership. Absolutely first of all it was no secret test that the Palestinian Authority would likely reject the plan any plan frankly that we put out. When President Trump made his bold and courageous historic decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and several months later move the embassy, both in accordance with US law something that US law required since nineteen, ninety five. The Palestinian Authority cut ties to the administration. But they also began to trash. Talk the plan that they have not yet seen in in the months. Preceding the launch of the plan, they rejected the plan including using statements by their prime minister. Such as the plan should be born dead. It should be a stillborn something to that effect. That's not quite an exact quote, but that was the tone of the conversation about the plan, but what everybody should realizes it isn't just the leadership that is necessary to get on board. It is essential for people to get on board, and if the people are not with this plan whether Israeli or The plan has little chance to succeed. I also want to add. We have to remember that. Really are two leaderships for the Palestinians or at least one leadership in Ramallah and one so-called leadership in Gaza. Hamas, which was a terrorist organization funded by Iran, and that subjugates the nearly two million Palestinians that live in Gaza causes tremendous suffering to those Palestinians. is whether we like it or not. At some form of Palestinian leadership, so even if the leadership in Ramallah even if President Obama's were to engage the plant. One has to wonder and really talk about what happens to the Palestinians, in Gaza, our plan of course provides for that, but we can't get the people in Gaza in their their so called leadership on board than there is no effective way to implement the peace plan. Very few people talk about that. Make It seem as though it's simple. If president us, either condemns the plan or engages on the plan then. Then we know our next steps while that's a bit too simplistic. We must all figure out a way to handle and deal with the two million Palestinians who are suffering in Gaza.

Married to this important guy that important yeah knew everybody? Yeah but she you know she was kind of like she's become sort of a minor character and entertainment industry and but she was before the rat. Pack It was in the fifties and she looked like a gardener and Sinatra liked her because of that because he was obsessed with Gardner as you know and After a divorced in nineteen fifty seven Frank Really kept this woman around Cindy betterment and I have the whole story of her extraordinary life she was great friends with. Sammy Davis Junior. She dated Jack. Carter the community which I love. Hey she used to do modeling. WITH MENTOR. Torme wife and she was very close to Mellon his wife There's also the great married. There's some period. She was married to some of the biggest people in Hollywood.

Radar and talk about it after she you know she She was married She divorced her husband. She went off and had these adventures.

"Wow We got a lot to get to Connecticut is open. New York. City should be opening about June fifteenth. We'll give you all the details about the judges phase one opening everything's GonNa start to open Even a mayor de Blasio always try to see if the slowest kid in the class gets it. Then you know you got through some even. He is starting to get it It's Memorial Day weekend it's Joe Bartlett when the when the New Year started it was twenty twenty mm. We're looking forward to the summer like I was. This is going to be a great year. The summer at twenty twenty was going to be a great summer. Who kind of imagined All of this but Summer begins officially. Today it's Memorial Day weekend. The weather's not that great but shouldn't Memorial Day. We can actually been next weekend. The twenty nine. This is a little early. Yeah so I remember the earlier in the year. So that's great. They may have an extra week summer. Who knew there'd be nothing but Connecticut is doing pretty well They've opened stores restaurants. I've been calling people in the big big stores up there and the malls and I said how's it going? These people are coming in people you know. They're anxious to get out there people coming. We're only at the thirty forty percent capacity though ahead to remind him you know you're only at five percent capacity before this began. They forget retail already died so But if you were driving around Stanford last night Bedford shoot. Where all those outdoor restaurant? There were people outdoors spread out if you were in Greenwich There was prime crab. Shell the Scowl J. House all the outdoor places and then on Greenwich Avenue Let the places put some tables outside They got a smart mayor. There's Fred Kamilo new mayor. This guy will figure this out the now. Here's what's going to happen there's The town was pushing for it. He's figuring out how do it? They'll close off parts of the avenue and let the restaurants put the tables out into the street and all over once that works. People are all watching Connecticut To weeks from now. This has worked. Everybody will do that even in New York. That's what we'll do it here. We'll close off some streets You know you go to Third Avenue on the east side Madison Avenue in the Seventies. We got a lot of restaurants in a row. They'll close off the streets and let them spread out into the street. Joe Bartlett doesn't know what we're talking about. 'cause he's in South Carolina where they went back to normal. What three weeks ago? I went to a restaurant last night. It was very nice restaurant but you could eat inside if you wanted to write the worst seats in. I'm not ready for that yet. Okay you don't feel well. You don't have many cases down there but if you were in New York City right now would you go to a restaurant if it opened. Would you feel little outside outside? I think you're fine. The service keep their masks Don They maintain their distance. No tables next to you. It's fine I I think I feel very safe eating out so listen to talk to every expert you can talk to every expert agrees on one thing. It cannot transmit in food. There's no way it's in your food that you're not possible now. What about the plate? What about the containers? The take out. It's possible but you know if you touch those just wash your hands afterwards and you find but all the experts now even that stupid. Cdc which is the other slow kid in the class. They're always way behind even there now. Changing their guidelines to say it's most likely never transmitted by a surface. They think it's always droplets person to person touch your droplets in the air. Very very rarely. Is it going to transmit on the surface so it's pretty safe to eat outside You know some people are afraid to go back to Sushi Sushi but again I've been huddling with a lot of restaurants with Sushi. Might be the safest thing you can eat. Because you know you've got that one Sushi chef there. He does everything. He cuts up. Everything does everything. It's not like a regular kitchen where there's a prep kitchen where like eighteen guys. Eighteen illegal aliens prep everything and then it goes to another station another station so forty hands of the time it gets like but again it should be pretty safe in a restaurant. I mean the all again now the only when you go to restaurant. We don't wear masks down there to you when you go to the store grocery store go into any sort of retail store you. Most people have mask on The only problem the restaurant when everybody's you have to wear the mask but when you sit down to eat you take it off. So now. Suddenly raises the tables with the masks of It's GONNA be alright. Everything's so even. I mean again. A lot of teachers told me this always look at the dumbest kid in the class. If he's getting it then you've explained it. Well then you've done your job if it's getting through to him so even mayor de Blasio says it's time to reopen He's watched Connecticut have done a pretty good job now. Of course you gotta wait and see if there's any spike in a couple of weeks but Florida Georgia Texas all the places that reopened despite we hear on fake news. There's no spikes anywhere. Everything's fine numbers are dramatically down in New York so the mayor is talking about June fifteenth for phase one reopening now phase one B Stores do all stores can open a new curbside Phase to should follow very fast. Maybe a week or so and then They'll allow you to go into the stores and I they're talking about. Possibly moving phase went up to June first and face to June fifteenth. So this could happen very fast if the numbers keep dropping so even even mayor de Blasios gets it so now you notice governor Cuomo. There's no hope of ever everything will be reopened. Even if he doesn't reopen we're reopening without you. We don't need you know. This is the mayor to block roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators the state indicators. We're seeing very clear progress. We have to sustain the progress. Now Joe Bartlett. What is wrong with him? You normally especially in real life. He's of He's kind of a fun jovial guy with a good personality. Yeah semen real life. He's a nice guy. He jokes around kids around with you. he's got a very easy going way about him he used to be not it wasn't Churchill but he was a pretty good speaker. You had a nice personality. Why does he say he sounds so frightened all the time? Now listen to this. He's giving good news and he sounds terrified. This is like a hostage video. All roads. Leading to the first half of June the city indicators state indicator what does it sounded. Oh well gotta think he's worried about what's going to be left of this city when he does decide to reopen it it's going to be it's a shambles. Yeah it's a disaster. Now he can put together all these commissions of how to reopen any through on the commissions a lot of Richard Ravitch type guys. You know very experienced Serious business people and I I'm sure these guys have been telling them you've destroyed everything that you totally destroyed the city. You GotTa stop this start reopening so You know you all these stores that are open. All the supermarkets are open. Hundreds of people only supermarkets every day. Nobody's getting sick in there. So why can't you open all the stores? Even the mom and pop stores clothing stores of you know whatever kind of stores I mean. Understand no makeup counter where they're GONNA put their hands on your face but start opening up So June fifteenth is The date the looking at figure June I. I think this is going to go faster than you think and again. They may try that thing when they do. The restaurants closed some of the streets and spread the tables out. You know when you're into like these Connecticut Restaurant. Some of them are real hot spots. So they've spread. The tables outs is a few feet between you and every table and when you go in and look at them you helping you do this before. This is the way you're supposed to. You know when you go to New York City restaurant you're on top of everybody Katie idea eating a meal in the middle of third avenues. It's just not appealing to me. Well but They do have outdoor tables illegals and all those places have outdoor tables in the Middle Street. well street all right now. Here's the other problem Even if you've ever sat I listen if you're at the Americana and you're eating cipollini outside it's beautiful. It's the grass. But whenever you eat outside mellows or anyone those places Madison Avenue. All that happens is four homeless guys. Come right up to your table and those is tripping all of your food buses. The exhaust fumes are going all over your system. It's not the greatest experience so well we'll we'll we'll Keep an eye on this situation. I think you're GonNa have some good news when we come back on Tuesday after Memorial Day weekend about New York City reopening. You see a big drop this weekend in numbers. Hey the president went to the Ford Motor Company. He had them convert the factory. To turn out ventilators they have been turning out tens of thousands of ventilators. I know what you're saying. You're saying how do we need these ventilators for we don't but this This cuomo this crazy Cuomo remember. He was yelling. Forty thousand ventilators. It was yelling this so much that he turned the president went nuts turning these factories into ventilator producers we now have hundreds of thousands of ventilators were stockpiling. I guess the what we'll do we'll just stockpile them if there's ever another Situation like this. We'll have them in a warehouse somewhere for years. But they're totally unnecessary so the president went to thank them. inspect factory. The subject was ventilators. And of course when he got there every question from the press wearing a mask. Where's your mask? How come you're not wearing a mask? I'm watching this you ever watch his dopey Lori stokes. She's on in the morning on TV. She show and she's so disgusted by him and she said he's not wearing a mask not wearing a mask. She's sitting in the studio with a lot of people not wearing a mask showing a clip of call wearing a mask showing clips of the Blasios. Not Worrying about never says a word about them so it's just a game. It's just a stupid game. They did ask him Why he didn't wear a mask what he did. Say something about ready to the choice.

There's there's more Baha Matt how do you deal with pleasing people as a content creator because I feel like I start thinking back and forth a lot of time about accessibility like how to bring people into the door and make them interested in something without sacrificing? What makes you you know and messing around with new art styles for shows because I as people probably saw in the game set clip? I'm completely changing? The arch style. But also I want to capture a similar feeling. I don't know is that. How does that go in? Like when you were making AC- or one talking to them making. Tom Goes to the mayor or anything like that. How do you guys think about like what are People GonNa like? What's you know makes us unique? I don't know where to start with it. We should start including you on some of these conversations that I've been having with these creators so you can ask. These questions of them like can do the younger people and you can do the older people. What do you mean while? Do the ones like you know under thirty five. I'll do the older people. Yeah why do you think I have a different now kidding? I'm kidding I thought you've done great on all of these interviews. Oddly enough. They interviewed I felt like was one of the most comfortable I for. Un even though there's a few things that were thrown as you at Zingers felt like or you were you were unsettled. I felt especially in the beginning. You're just maybe because you know Jenna pretty well. I just felt like very comfortable and I liked easier when these things are done in person. Just be guess. She's real nice. She's friendly funny in Or last two or like Joe Para was over the phone and he's already awkward and slink is cool but like he's almost statuesque in is the way he emotes like almost like it's hard for you to get in on it and that's not bad but like it's like it felt like you're on the sidelines of him as a spectacle. I really liked genus. Show US Tony before the recording. I've said this before that specifically the McAfee interview. I sent to some my college friends which I don't do a lot with content from us just because I don't WanNa feel like a brand she'll unless it's something I'm making I think they'd like But I'm not like sending Mr pickles episodes a robot chicken clips to my college friends but a few of them. Like you gotTA check this out. I think this is so good. And it's also very much my mom and my dad though they are divorced and countries apart right now I think they really like Jon Stewart stuff and I know she happens in that world. I think they always wanted me to do something like that. I had them over last October. My mom and her husband and showed them the John McAfee interview Jenna Freedman soft-focus. Certainly the mark of something good is if you want to send it to people. Yeah I mean I think it's similarly interesting as tiger king which is now in the Zeitgeist so big. I feel like that specific interview has shades of that like where you're watching this large train wreck of a person. Yeah what was fun about this interview at the end? There's a little bit of a interactively with social media that pops up that has since been resolved. But I don't WanNa spoil anything real quick.

"friedman" Discussed on What It Takes
"She the problem is the grady. One of the great economists in the nineteenth century was Alfred Marshall and he has as a sort of for one of his books the seen and the unseen. And it's a marvelous model for this. The most what happens in economics over and over again is that there are two sets of effects of action. The immediately visible effects and the widespread invisible fans and the widespread invisible facts are often much more important than the visible. But people don't see. Let me give you very simple examples. We have a quota on the amount of sugar that can be imported from various countries. The visible effect of that is it. There are about a couple of hundred thousand growers of each other. Who benefited greatly from it or able to keep on growing beet sugar. They don't benefit so greatly. Because most of the money goes into paying the expenses are growing beach and indeed. If there were no such quota they would find something else to do but who believe in the short appear. The visible effect is that they are able to have a market. They would otherwise not the invisible. Effec- is it. Every consumer in the United States pays twice as much for the sugar he or she buys as a world price. Now you're a consumer. How much attention. To the fact do you pay to the fact that you pay twice as much for sugar as you ought to is the fact that you pay twice as much sugar as you ought to going to lead you to go down to. Washington to testify against the Sugar Quota. But are the beet. Sugar farmers going to go down to Washington to testify in favor of the sugar corn. It's a typical example of the scene versus the concentrated visible versus dispersed invisible. And the major reason my roughly half the income of this country is controlled by governmental agencies. Instead of by the people who earn it is because of this contrast between the visible and the invisible. You're saying that governmental interference in the economy and management of things necessarily leads to vested interests. No is necessarily controlled by vested in. There's there's a pot of money there in every one of these coaches and just as beasts will go. Hunting people will go to parliament and the people will be most effective in getting control of that. Pot of money are people who are trying to grab it for themselves rather than people who are trying to spend it on behalf of somebody else. Everybody wants to spend somebody else's money and nobody spent somebody else's money as carefully as he spends his own. That's a fundamental principle. There's only one way in my opinion in which you can. You can exercise control over this process. And that's by effective constitutional limitation backed by public opinion. Not Backed by public opinion do no good limitation on spending no much broader than limitation on spending limitation on spending would be one step but much more broader limitation. We have free speech because of the First Amendment of the Constitution. I would be in our book free to choose. We listed the amendments. We'd like to see in the constitution. They're much broader than that. Such as Congress shall make no laws prohibiting any trades between consenting individuals with respect to goods at US legal to trade now that would eliminate all tariffs eliminate the sugar quota that. You may not see offhand that it would but it would if you think about it. A little because individuals include foreign individuals not only domestic individuals. So no I would really like much broader constitutional limitations than just an imitation on on. There are many other things you can think. For example you might have a constitutional amendment that nobody going to be elected to Congress and Senate unless he's more than sixty years of age that would eliminate the people the possibility of people being elected to Congress in order to be able to get benefits after they leave. Congress see that's the defect. I happen to be in favor of term limitation proposals simply. Because maybe that's a possible thing you can get but the defect determination proposals. You have young people who enter a congress and they're limited to twelve years old. Use those twelve years to get Brownie points with people on the outside. I'll give him a job later. So it'd be much more effective to limit the Legislation Though people are to make it a part time job or an unpaid job. Anyway there are lots of solutions. I'm not going to go through the solutions here. Instead Milton Friedman recommended that are interviewer Jim Angle and any other listeners. Who WERE INTERESTED GO? Read his books free to choose and the earlier capitalism and Freedom. You've talked about Various governmental approaches that you think are ineffective Sometimes worse than that. The one approach that you do think as effective and with which you are most associated is monetary policy. What is it that monetary policy does? No excuse me. You have misinterpreted my position. I would like to go to the Federal Reserve. I would like to have money to controlled by computer however that's not what's happening and I'm a realist. You're going to have a Federal Reserve system and therefore it's relevant to ask given that there is a Federal Reserve system even though it'd be a better world if we could get rid of them. How should Federal Reserve Opera? So I've been concerned with monetary policy by trying to see how to make it less harmful than it is likely to be. I don't WanNa Surrey government. It's necessary there are certain things that it is essential for government to do. I'm not an anarchist. I believe in government but limited government and the government should be limited in my opinion to very simple function Friedman listed just for that this criterion one defending the country against foreign enemies to protecting individual citizens from abuse by other citizens policing in other words three defining and enforcing rules for private property and four Adjudicating Disputes Aka the judicial system but going back to monetary policy what is monetary policy concerned with. Its concerned fundamentally with what happens to the quantity of money much money. There's no again no natural definition of money the first thing money is whatever you use to engage in transactions. Whatever it is that people are willing to accept not because they want it but because they know that somebody else will accept it in return for something they want. There's an island in the Pacific which uses great big stones as money the gap but of course the most the thing that has mostly been used as money. Historically been silver and gold. But we've gotten beyond that and now we use we use pieces of paper and the question is who determines how much money there is and the answer is in the present system. There are eight There are nineteen people who sit around a table in Washington once every two weeks who have the power unlimited power to double the quantity of money over the next year or cut it in half over the next year. Those nineteen people are the seven members of the Federal Reserve Board and the twelve presidents of the Federal Reserve banks of the Regional Federal Reserve Banks. Only five of those twelve presidents have a vote on that open market committee anytime but all twelve attend every meeting and influence the action that occurs. They have the unquestioned power to do this and it was a way. They exercise that power during the Great Depression that was responsible for the depth of the depression. It was a way they exercise that power during the nineteen seventies that was responsible for the inflation during the nineteen seventies and is fundamentally responsible for the savings and loan debacle so how they exercise. Power makes an enormous amount of difference and in my opinion I shouldn't say opinion. The Federal Reserve over the whole of its existence has done much more harm than good. In Bad Times they sail. Times are bad. In spite of us. We did everything we could to offset it. Even in depth of the Depression in nineteen thirty two and thirty three. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board was saying you cannot imagine how much worse things would have been if we hadn't done our duty but Alan Greenspan for is a first chairman of the Federal Reserve public testimony before said we may have made a mistake and I give him very high marks for that so as I say this has been a system.
"friedman" Discussed on What It Takes
"Down the street and you buy some strawberries. You think you've been many strawberries that you want at the price posted and you're right but muscles everybody. In the country tried to buy more strawberry. There wouldn't be any more Stromberg. The total quantity has strawberries fixed. Price would have to go. This is Milton Friedman the most influential economist of the second half of the twentieth century. So from the point of view of the individual the quantity is variable and the practice fixed for everybody together but quantity is fixed and the prices vary and what's true for. Strawberries is true for almost everything you can think of. And that's why in my opinion ordinary people are so subject to economic fallacies because they tend to extrapolate from what's true for them as an individual for what's true for everybody and almost always. That's a long extrapolation Milton. Friedman was the chief evangelist for Free Market Economics and small government. He died in two thousand six at the age of ninety four when the great recession hit the following year. Economists policymakers and think takers argued. What WOULD MILTON DO? Then the government bailout came and some said it was totally consistent with Milton. Friedman principles others called it the end of the age of Friedman. Well we're now looking at a two point. Two trillion dollar stimulus package in response to the unprecedented havoc of covert nineteen. Seem like a good time to go into the Academy of achievements audio vault and pull out this conversation with Milton. Friedman recorded in Nineteen ninety-one. You can listen and decide for yourself. This is what it takes from the Academy of Achievement. I'm Alice Winkler at this. Child is gifted and I heard that enough that I started to believe if you have the opportunity not a perfect opportunity and you don't take it you may never have another child it all so clear. It was just like the picture started to form itself. There was new. Each ally could prevail over the truth darkness over light over life every day. I wake up and decide today. I'm going to love my life. Decide assist if they're gonNA break your leg when you go into play. Stay out of there and then along companies differential experiences. But you don't look for you. Don't plan for the boy. You better not miss him. Milton Friedman was a conservative libertarian. An ardent believer in small government and individual responsibility. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in economics in nineteen seventy six. What fascinates me so about economic system. Is that the fundamental principles are so simple you feel as if anybody can learn in two days. Basic Fundamentals of economics very simple. Elementary Principles of economics are are trivial. People can spend their own money more carefully than they'll spend anybody else's buy low sell high. Go Down the principles very simple and yet it seems to be so hard for people to understand and people so often get them wrong and the major reason they do and this is what is really fascinating. Is it almost always? What's true for the individual is the opposite of what is true for everybody put together even. The economists who strongly disagreed with Milton Friedman's conclusions about inflation and unemployment and a range of economic factors. Agree that his research and analysis were groundbreaking and maybe a little more complex than he's letting on here. His ideas altered the economic policies and public policies of governments around the world including our own reaganomics. That was largely Friedman onyx and his beliefs helped reshape eastern bloc countries after the fall of Communism. So where did this giant among intellectuals get his start in a family of poorly educated immigrants who ran a dry goods store? That's where and that's where we'll begin tale. I knew I like mathematics tonight. It was pretty good at mathematics and I was an ignorant boy in a small town in a family. That never had anybody gone to college. I didn't know what use mathematics for and the only thing I could find out was that it was used in the insurance industry. Somehow Milton Friedman's parents emigrated from Central Europe. As so many Jewish refugees did at the turn of the twentieth century. They met as teenagers in New York. Gave birth to their son Milton in nineteen twelve and moved to rockaway New Jersey for this conversation with the Academy of Achievement. Friedman spoke with Jim Angle the former correspondent for NPR ABC CNN and Fox. Jim Milton Friedman whether he could remember a particular experience that opened his eyes to the possibility of a life of the mind. That's a very very hard thing to say. I had a Teacher in high school. Who was really. Somehow I think he taught government or political science. Something like that. Whatever you call them in high school but he also taught Euclidean geometry playing geometry simply because he liked to such a beautiful intellectual discipline and I took His Kirsch and one point or another. He got rhapsodised about the beauty of geometry and he quoted. The last lines of Keita's owed to a gross. Earn truth is beauty. Beauty is truth. That has all you know. And all you need to know in those two lines stuck mates with me. I was about probably twelve or thirteen at the time and I have talked with me ever since because they so much reflected the sort of feeling I had about the geometry as well and about mathematics in general that its appeal as one of beauty kind of an intellectual purity and beauty. Now that was. I'm sure that that was what drove me direction thinking I wanted to make math. Mathematics my My lifetime we're what did your parents think When you've I told them that you're interested in mathematics or even when you start to become interested in economics well first of all I have to separate out My father died when I was thirteen years old. So my mother was a very intelligent able but She was not intellectual. My father was not an intellectual. Neither one of them ever gone well. It's factor adopted. Either one of them had ever gone through anything beyond elementary. They knew how to read and write but they were in small private business. My we had a small retail store at the time that my mother ran and that was the source of livelihood and also was a source of enormous aggravation because you were always owing more money than you had funds to pay what I would say that by today's standards. My parents in the whole of their life never had an income that came anywhere close to what we now regard as a poverty low and yet they never regarded themselves as poor because they were self sufficient. They might be difficult economic straights. We never had any great luxury or anything but we always had enough to eat. We always were clothed so that we were not a scandal for a shame on the community and none of us would have said. We were poor but they were not intellectuals in any way and it wouldn't have occurred to them to comment on my interest in mathematics or economics because that wouldn't have been meaningful to them. We people like me were of new generation. We were in a different world. It wasn't their world world. I had gone up. Had been altogether different world and so if I had said to my mother you know. I'm going to be interested in mathematics. She would've said what's that not an let me emphasize it was not because they were uninterested or unwilling to make sacrifices not because they didn't value intellectual activities very highly but because they were not sophisticated but willing to support you. Whatever whatever you wanted to do because they trusted your judgment in those areas far more than they did their own. A lot of people have brains and potential and work hard. Not everyone is as successful as you have been How do you account for your success? Luck chance people grossly underestimate the role luck and chance in people's lives. If the United States in the eighteen eighty s and eighteen nineties had had the kind of laws that has now my parents would never been able to come to the United States. They would not have gotten visas. They would not have gotten in there if they had met and got married. They would have been In where they came from an area of when they left it was Hungary austro-hungary. They had been unable to come to the United States. If they had stayed there and gotten married Darren. I was born and all that I'd now be a citizen of Russia. Pure chance I had nothing to do with it. One.

Were still surviving You know You Know Harry Harry Harry Inhaler. Yeah Harry turns up in silent movie. Yeah Well Mel Brooks was a huge Harry Reid. And so has Jerry Lewis. They adored Harry Ritz. You know it's like hard to even get a sense of how funny how are you? It's was from the movies. But if you supposedly see saw him on stage and he was just he would just go crazy on bishops so hated since you bring up since brings up generally. Don't seem like a nice pleasant guy to me but I don't know was he hated. Yeah we haven't heard kind word about them and now him and Danny Kaye kind word about long deck of Joy. Bishop playing cards. Okay Jake side using the juicy. Yeah yeah I I travel with. I want to read a section Jeff. Ross wrote our pal. Jeffrey Ross wrote the forward to even more Jewish comedians. Or go into the third volume. I WanNa read this. Don't feel sorry for us just because we're not lookers. It doesn't mean we don't get our share of conquests in fact. Comedians often do better with the opposite. Sex than are more amorous. But less humorless friends hell even Gilbert Godfrey does hot wife. Of course he's also blind and deaf. Gilber ask new book is called all the President's portrait's you know there's no Jews in. It was an experiment. How could I do it? The whole book with no Jews in it. I almost do because in the beginning in my forward to the book I draw. I Drew Jared Kushner Yen. Lenny Bruce and the voice of Jared Kushner. I know this on. I'm John Oliver really captured. I and I know jared because he was the publisher observers. I met him a few times and he sounds just like you ask in my book. It's UNCANNY actually but in my book You know it's not a history book so it's not like I wouldn't recommend it to people WANNA learn about the presence but in the book there's like a fun fact that Kevin Doherty helped me put together for each president and some of them are A couple of them. That are interesting. I thought I don't want to give too much because I want people to buy this book of. Yes so Gerald Ford was the first president who actually invited beetle to the White House and I was George. That's cool. Wow and oh. Barack Obama collected comic books. He was a huge Spiderman Fan. Did you know that? Now and Ulysses s grant is actually not buried in grant's tomb highs buried above ground and the trump fact that trump is the last guy in the book. Obviously I saved them the last two drawn because I couldn't accept that he was the president. I put it to you know so I finally dream. He's the last guy so the fun fact about him is he is the for. Donald Trump is the first president to host a reality reality. Tv series that featured Gilbert Godfrey. Dago deal oh excellent. That is the fun fact with Donald Trump. That takes when I was working on this book. One of the interesting things for me was like and I was looking these people. I was as drawing them and thinking like who could play this person in a movie because some of them looked like I. I realized that has joined James Polk. They look just like Boris Karloff. O- how and Millard. Fillmore looks just like Alec Baldwin. Right if you look at them on Candy James Buchanan looks like John Lithgow. Andrew Johnson looks like Tommy Lee Jones. Jimmy Carter Looks William H. Macy and Barack Obama looks like Gilbert Godfrey George Washington looks like stone stone. Somebody else mentioned a William Bendix which I didn't get it and also the the guy who used to write those Mickey Selene and that one. I see when Barack Obama was still in office. I was always getting tweet where people tweet a picture of me and Barack Obama of us together. Yeah you got the ears similar haircut and plus backheeled as he had a fro- and you had the giuffre. Oh Yeah so you know. I like to point out that Gilbert played one of the people in this book. Abe Lincoln. Yes oh I know yeah I know I love you. Lincoln I love Hitler. Yes Ashley. Historical really captured the leader. Hose and really put it over. I think I'm the only person who's played both Abe Lincoln and he'd fit. Look that up. We mentioned jared. And there's a documentary. Being prepared about jared for net flicks and the guys who made the Roger Stone? Get me. Roger Stone movie have have made the stock. Yeah it's GonNa be on dirty money this series and came actually came up to my house and filmed for it. You know talking about my my relationship. I mean like yeah working for jared the New York Observer and then the time I met him At the at the four seasons he hosted a party. And that's the first time I met him so I told the story on Aaron. I'll tell it now it's like I approached him. I saw him at the bar by himself and I said the Kathy. I'M GONNA go introduce myself. He knows who I am because he had bought some of my artwork the covers the observer so I walked up to him his stand by himself. He hadn't been married to Ivonne key yet and he was but he's hosting this huge anniversary party for the observers holding Lhasa Champagnes. I walked up to my say. Hey Jared it's drew. Fredin he goes oh hydro and he's like kind of looking around surveying the crowd like Gatsby and he goes drew. Add like to talk to you but there are a lot more far more important people here for me to talk to so shocking nodded and kind of backed off and went back to Kathy and she said so. How'd that go and I said well. This is what he said and she couldn't believe it like really said that to you. I said Yeah you know and I found that kind of refreshing. His honesty is blatant honesty. So you know a friend of a mutual friend of ours of Jared's mine. Ken Carson said he was talking to jared recently and he brought that He. Did you really say that the drew Friedman and jared taught about he said Yeah. That sounds like something I would have said so confirm confirms it while. But the guy's making this documentary. They WanNa have you come to the opening to do your jared impression? He'll be fed. Don't worry about you'll be. You'll be similar wildcard question. Why does why did Joan rivers detest Lewis so much because Schuch? Because it's one more question? I think it was vice versa. I think Jerry Hated Joan rivers. He made he made it clear. He didn't women comics dating back to the he didn't like Phillips Bills Doug Jones. Jerry should be electrocuted. They hated each. Oh you know they hate each other and but I think I think it was more him. He just dismissed female comics. That got back to her and it could have been more to it than that. I think there's a MERV Griffin's show with the both of them on the panel that when Merv is doing those like really cool shows in the mid sixty s. I think we had to guest on this show. Who what's amazing about them had nice things to say about Jerry Lewis? Well you and I do have yourself as we got. Jerry liked you. And he liked me. He liked he called me when my first Jewish comedians book came out and I was nervous about it but he made a fuss on it and they invited Jerry even via Kathy. Neither Las Vegas to be as guests at one of the telephones. The second to last telephone so you know we were there in Las Vegas and then the night before they were setting up he was in his jazzy but I wanted to meet him. I had never met. I'll talk so I approached him and we had a little talking. Kathy couldn't have been sweeter and nicer. He starts moving away in his little jazzy cycle. You know like you know Zip zip and back and forth. And I say as he's leaving he goes I just met drove Friedman hands-on says like who's drew Friedman. He goes the audience. You fucking idiot. I remember when they were dedicating that wall of the Friars Club to him and it was an outdoor ceremony of course and I was sitting in a chair and I wound up sitting right next to Jerry. And he was like he would start yelling out. I it was everything you want. Louis still be. He was like heckling the ceremony. When he yell out a joke after each jokey gripe my arm and squeeze it get it and I thought wow we pulling me and he took a liking to you and he took and I was nervous as hell. Yeah when he first call me and I knew he was going to call. 'cause the editor of The Observer said Jerry Lewis is going to be calling because I did some trivia to him so I should shit you know I had to get my and I knew when he was he was going to call the next day. So okay don't mention. Morton don't mention abbegg wrestler his first agent. We wound up painting. And don't mention Sammy patrol. Yeah you know. And I didn't and we had a great conversation. He would call back and everything so then my friend. Dave Wilson is writing this biography of Sammy patrol into those. Who Don't Know Sammy? Troll is the guy who used to imitate Jerry Lewis. Jerry discovered them.

Yeah because they were slowing down in there. They were making sense why they were doing. They were heroes and they were like sticking up for the for the you know for Kitty. Carlisle Maureen O'Sullivan and the other one and also the musical interludes were really getting. They weren't anarchists anymore. Not really stake sells David You know the do Saul. Berg of a coup groucho loved. The Authority. Said like those are the best films they also made money. They were profit of one of the reasons. They were big. Mgm Stars. They were making more money and chuckled. Played Poker with with Albert. You know they were really tight with them so when you know you know all this when when Thalberg died they were set adrift at Mgm. And mayor hated them. He didn't get them. He didn't get the Marx brothers wasn't his kind of humor. You know so it was over and you know chicken needed the money. I heard head coach true and and I heard that at one point net hike and said he wanted to write a mock spur. This movie which I think would have been great. It's been great. And also. Billy wilder wanted to make a mark brothers at the UN. Later on you know it. It probably wouldn't have turned very well. It was like they were old. Yeah it was after the story of mankind so yeah. Oh jewel jewel. Joe also tells her those were scary. So since you've alluded to it and you've told the stories before tell us again quickly about the other two meetings with Groucho. Because THEY'RE WORTH HEARING. Oh and he was a fan of. Your Dad's right. Your Dad was a we. You know my first encounter. I was eleven at Minnie's boys that was I didn't meet him. I just went up to him and people are getting autographs so my dad was invited to a party at this Jimmy. Supper club which was a Popular Supper Club will remind our listeners. Who Don't know that. Your Dad is is Bruce. Jay Friedman the celebrated so he was in the T- There was a party for teachers. Scotch teachers carts through the party because hiring old comedian. Ed Yeah Shera mended and they got George Burns and then Groucho. All of a sudden didn't add for Teachers Scotch and so Jimmy's supper club hosted a party for Groucho. My Dad's somehow got invited. This is late. Nineteen seventy two So my dad mentioned it to me and brought me. You know and So graduates with Erin Fleming and And we approached them and gradually just seen the heartbreak kid which was based on my dad's short story and he knew it. I mean knew. My Dad was connected you should. I just saw your film. The heartbreak and you know it was really wonderful. You know so he would. Just you know who's pleasant. He had already had some strokes. He was slowed down. But that basically it Erin Fleming was with them but Erin Fleming like my dad in fact. She had a little crush on him. So because A couple years later she invited a my dad and my might myself and my two brothers to grandma's house this is nineteen seventy five so groucho would would have been seventy five to his house for the whole day in. Hollywood is like that modern house. He had up in the Hollywood hills so I would have been sixteen so we spent the whole day at Groucho spouse. You know like and it was interesting because like there were famous people coming in and out like Elliott Gould and Sally Kellerman. Dennis Wilson came in and it was like people were kind of like saying hi to graduation and disappearing in the back and my theory is that there was cocaine being offered back in the ballpoint luring all these young Hollywood types blood court into all types. You're about it. Used to like hang out of Groucho says always there regulars and but Dennis Wilson was there and he he comes in I. I was just like basically I was just like staring at Groucho. I was there throughout the whole they just staring at them and thinking my head. I'm probably the luckiest kidney entire world right now. At this moment you know just like looking at Groucho and you know he was singing songs and everything Erin Fleming was doing the mark the Margaret Dumont Pine and so Dennis Wilson Walks in. It's like Oh cool. And he goes up the graduates pleasure to meet you. Sir and Groucho looks at me has no idea who is he. Looks up and then a guy comes in and goes says he comes up to grouchy. Goes My name is is mark and Raja looks at macos. What's your first name trade but How old would he have been at? This point was eighty five eighty five of the twentieth century because graduates born in eighteen nineties in nineteen. Thirty Groucho was forty and so on so one thousand nine. Seventy GROUCHO was eighty. Nine hundred seventy five. He was eighty five. He died two years later but you know he was really slowed down but he liked kids he he liked young but I heard West on my brothers and I you know we and I sat there and I watch them eat his lunch and he was dribbling React chicken creamed chicken and his nurse at the like. Wipe it off. We put them to bed. We actually put to go to bed early but before he went to bed he wanted to watch the latest episode of You. Bet Your life which had just come back in syndication. So they were airing it around seven thirty every night in Los Angeles so he wanted to watch that so we took him into his bedroom and he got in his pajamas and we hugged him. Good night and the Alice Cooper role because he used to put them to bed right. You have to go to bed early. You know gives a sick old man but he wanted to watch he had to watch you bet your life. I was like a nice memory. I first time my most Rundell Sner. We hadn't had him on the podcast yet. HE JU-. We hadn't we barely got introduced to each other and he said to me about you know. He helped produce Groucho at Carnegie Hall. And he said Dell Sner says to me goes you know this Erin Fleming. Us diplo crowd show and he goes into the sweet story. Yes what what you're saying. Oh fuck the composer Myron Ham and he goes and and more families had a shouted to God. She thought in she was in the cover of. She wasn't the Woody Allen Film. He's in every. I think everything. You always want to know about sex lewd network. She was a strange woman. She she you know. She said she liked my dad so I think she was flirting with them and she wanted. She wanted us to the conclusion that graduates story. Visiting Groucho is like we went home. We're staying in Malibu. My my dad was working Malibu that summer. Who is staying at his house? My brothers night and then the next day. Erin Fleming called my dad and said Groucho really loved having you. He'd like to invite you back to the house next week because Mae West is coming to the house. They haven't seen each other for thirty five years since they both worked at paramount. So my dad got off the phone and said hey guys Erin would like us to come back next week to You know see Groucho and they west and we'd like kind of look these shows so that we have enough Groucho. Favorite one of my. That's probably.
