"From NPR and WB YOU are. I'm Tanya Moseley. I'm Jeremy Hobson. It's here now in a letter to lawmakers today Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff described the impeachment hearings. That will begin tomorrow. As a solemn undertaking and said everyone including president trump would be treated fairly this week marks the first public hearings on impeachment since President President Bill Clinton was impeached in nineteen ninety. Eight William Jefferson Clinton is not a king he is our president. You have the the power and the duty to remove him for office for high crimes and misdemeanors some Americans. Also remember the Senate hearings into President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal back in one thousand nine hundred seventy three. The questions that have been raised in the wake of the June seventeenth break in strike at the vet on the guarding about democracy. If the many allegations made this date of crude then the burglars who broke into the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee at the Watergate way on affect rake in the home of the citizens of the United States joining us now is Julian Salazar professor of history and public affairs at Princeton. University Jelena's you hear those two clips from years ago. What is your feeling about the importance of what is happening this week? Well These are the moments when Congress tries to lay out its case Either through witnesses or through the speeches of members themselves and and these are really really relevant to public opinion and related to that to the opinion of members of the Senate as to Was this a corruption of power. Not What is the first thing you're going to be watching for tomorrow. What the witnesses say I think ultimately that's going to be the most important the weight of the testimony? Do they have enough to draw a big picture for the public about about how the president conducted foreign policy in in bad ways And then the second thing is how the parties try to handle this. Republicans will smear. They'll distract they're gonNA try to do everything possible. So you're not focused on the witnesses and the question is can Democrats figure out a way to handle that and do you think that lawmakers In both parties are keeping an open. Mind as they head into this week. I'm not persuaded by that. I do think there's an imbalance between the parties. The Democrats were very slow to reach this point so they did as a party. Let the facts drive them to this moment. which many people including Speaker Pelosi didn't want to be in But so far at least the Republicans on the committees have not really had an open mind. And so that's part of what we're watching is there any fact. Is there any any development smoking gun testimony that can shake that partisan status quo when you listen to that tape that we just played from the impeachment of of President Clinton and The the hearings that were going on into a President Nixon. What are the parallels between what we're seeing now and what we saw then well Both ultimately were questions about the abuse of presidential power. That's the big picture here While we're focusing on the story of Ukraine I mean that's what Congress was looking in nineteen seventy three and then seventy four and that's what they saw and and similar that's what Republicans The case they wanted to make back in nineteen eighteen ninety eight I think the seventy three seventy four moment is more instructive in many ways because ultimately congress was able to paint a very big picture of systematic abuse of power by the President And put together different moments different people that all supported this and so that's what the current current house needs to aspire to. If they're going to make the case well in back then of course. They didn't get very far did they. Because President Nixon resigned from office. Sure he resigned and in the house as a whole didn't have to make a decision and so we don't actually know how that would have looked. Or what would have happened in the Senate or the most people suspect President Nixon would have been removed from office. It was also watched in a very different museum. It was three networks There wasn't really partisan news at the time time and so we had a public Commons where people watch this unfold. Today we have a fragmented Commons and very partisan Commons and so that will affect the politics of the hearings themselves. How so I mean and and I'm thinking also of social media which is GonNa be live tweeting and live commenting on everything that's going on in the next couple couple of days? Well no one's GONNA collectively see the same thing They're going to AC bits and pieces of these hearings. I suspect that's what a lot of people how they will experience transit and be they will watch these but then it will be followed up by very partisan commentary that will say look at this but this is what it all meant and so it's much harder for the House of Representatives to sustain a national conversation and to quote unquote educate the public when people will literally see different facts before them and we've heard reporting that The Democrats would like to get the biggest newsy moments out of the hearings right at the beginning in that first. forty-five minutes Tamara de think that we're going to hear anything in these public hearings that might actually shift public opinion. One way or the other we could. I mean look what what what has happened. Since the whistle blower revealed what went on and everyone else came out in the private hearings to support that it has shifted public opinion It's is lend more support to the idea of impeachment and even to removal nationally The president is not in good standing right now even though he's doing well with Republicans so so I think what we've learned from Ukraine is evidence that the facts can still matter. They have to be dramatic. They have to be clear But there is a possibility ability. That is Julian's Eleazar professor of history and public affairs at Princeton University and again many. NPR stations will be carrying those hearings. Live Tomorrow Julian thanks. Thanks for having me and now to an update on former president. Jimmy Carter who is recovering from brain surgery at emory university hospital in Atlanta Carter underwent surgery to relieve pressure on his brain that was caused by bleeding. After a couple of recent falls. He is the oldest living president in US history at ninety five years old which brings to question the delicate act performing surgery on older adults to talk more about this. We have with us. Dr Robert Solomon Chairman of Columbia's department amount of neurosurgery Doctor Salomon welcome so dr you specialize in the surgical treatment of cerebral vascular disease which is caused by damage to the brain from an interruption of its blood supply how invasive is brain surgery with the understanding that there lots lots of different types of cerebral vascular disease. The type of brain surgery required for Mr Carter has nothing to do With interruption of blood flow to the brain as best I can tell it has to do with bleeding on the surface of the brain so that is not a very invasive procedure to drain the blood clot off the surface of the brain compared to any other type of direct surgery on when the blood vessels of the brain so I I don't think that he had a clues of any blood vessel of the brain or something like that in Mr Carter's Haarder's case He went into surgery to relieve pressure on his brain and that was caused by bleeding. He since come out of that surgery but we've been thinking a lot about his age. I think it was the first thing that came to question for us how to doctors decide if a patient is too old for surgery. Well I think I don't really know the details of Mr Carter case but from what I gather he has is a A subdural Hematoma which is a blood clot. That's putting pressure on the brain but not really inside the brain and so that resides right on the surface and through a very tiny opening in the skull called a Burr Hole. That blood can usually. It'd be drained out without major trauma unusually under local anesthesia. So somebody even in their nineties could withstand the type of surgery which is really very minimally invasive and you set that right there even someone in their nineties overall what are or some of the risks of operating on older patients well if they require general anesthesia than that obviously greatly complicates the risks because anybody in their nineties undergoing general anesthesia has very significant risk of having a cardio pulmonary complications Sion's just from the anesthesia if the operation can be done under local which means just injection of numbing agents into onto the scalp and not really completely anesthetizing the patient than it's much safer in terms of any type of systemic. The complications are cardiopulmonary problems. As I mentioned Carter is out of surgery and it's being reported that it was without complications but I think about some of my loved ones who are of that age and the recovery time that it takes for them even for a minor things that they're going to see the doctor actor for how much time would you expect recovery to take for something like this. Well it it's it's highly variable and again in people this age the the problem has to do with the atrophy of the brain. The brain is usually shrunken in comparison to the size of the skull. All so that even though you drain out the fluid that's putting pressure on the brain. The brain doesn't instantly respond mind and expand back up to fill the space that was filled by the blood. Clot that can greatly delay the recovery period and May Produce Secondary complications if there's a a virtual space now inside the skull blood and fluid can accumulate again in that space so this is a big complicating factor for somebody in their nineties. Undergoing this type of drainage procedure will we wish the best to Mr Carter as he is now out of surgery without complications and resting. Dr Robert Solomon is the Chairman of Columbia's Cumbias Department of.

"Apparently working for Gary was very stressful. And and you. You expressed your reluctance and you said to him. I don't want you to hate me. What major thing that? If you became the show runner that would kill your relationship with him. Well there was just a you know a long Line of bodies of people who had held that position addition. I I always liken it to trying to paint with Picasso painting a painting with him he probably at some point would turn to you and go. You do it all wrong. What's with the red? You would always disappoint him because the show is so in his mind and so based on his feelings feelings and experience it when you work something so personal how could you ever know what he would do. What's in his heart? How he would behave? And because Gary was you know neurotic about running a staff. He was an amazing with the writers and Compassionate of what was so hard about pleasing him that it was a combative show. It was painful at times. If you pitch Gary Joking he hated it. You would feel it you you would. I mean it will. It would hurt you. The Look of disappointment in Gary's eyes and there were very few people that carry felt like could write the show so when he said Hey. Can you do me a favor and Co show run this last season. I was terrified because I loved my relationship with Gary Gary and I didn't want something to go terribly wrong with it and I said to him Gary I'll I'll do it. You have to know how hard this is i. It was just honest with him in probably no one ever had been and I was honest about why he was difficult to work with. And I said let's figure out how we can do it where we don't turn on each other and a lot of it was about trying to pull gary into spaces to get him to have a little more time to figure out the solutions Russians and to make the work more fun for Gary so he wasn't just waiting on the writers to hand him solutions. You Know How could we get him more involved in in the process Said certain key moments and you know it worked pretty well we. We remained friends at the end and he really liked the final final season. Adam resnick also ran. The final season was brilliant. So it is one of the great accomplishments in my life. One of the funny things is when I was reading Gary's diaries I kept thinking he never slams me in these diaries. I was so happy and then one day I opened the diary and there was a list of everyone who had disappointed him that year and I was number three because I left the show one year to go. Make a movie and I wasn't there to help him so I think it hurt him more than he he led on. But it wasn't your performance as a comedy writer as the fact that you left to do something a project if your own yes and and I didn't even know that he cared that I was there. At that point I was young and a consulting producer. I wasn't really in charge of anything. I was just pitching jokes and trying to be helpful but I guess I guess at hurt his feelings. Okay so he got sick toward the end of his life. Garry shandling got sick. Or the end of his life he had Hypothyroidism parathyroid ISM. I'm not sure what that is and pancreatitis and I'm not exactly sure what that is either but So what what are those conditions. Then how do they affect his his outlook on life and his ability to function. Well the fired issue affected Gary Brain. It slowed down and someone described it to me as almost mirroring what aging feels like so there were years where Gary felt like he was running out of gas or he was getting old but actually he had this condition which was fogging up his brain and the ultimate had an operation that that dealt with it but I think as a result of it not being dealt with for a long time it may have contributed to pancreatitis assists on his pancreas and he had to have a life threatening operation to deal with that and part of the result of all this was that he did get foggy in his brain. He he had years. Where you'd see Gary and he? You just seem like a mess and you didn't really ever know what it was. What was it from being sick? was he on medication. Was He depressed. And we all worried about him and Gary would you know would would say to me sometimes How do I seem in a what are people saying about me? What did they think's he's going on and he had an awareness of it and he was always trying to get more clear headed? Buddy was fighting multiple illnesses. He died on March twenty sixteen. Who is sixty six years old? Do you remember your last conversation with him. In the month before Gary he died he was obsessed with getting the Larry Sanders show on. HBO Streaming. He wanted it to exist. Exists somewhere and we would talk and strategize about how to make that happen because it had been sold off in pieces two different entities fees and he was trying to get. Hbo To buy all of it and to make it accessible and he wasn't sure if HBO is the place or not. And I said well what is the issue is it money. Are you trying to find a place that will pay the most money or you just want to have it out there for the most people to see and he said I just want people to be able to watch watch it. And we had a bunch of conversations about how to expedite that process and the morning that he died died he got a call and his agent told him that. HBO had closed the deal and they were buying place and to show and they were going to run it and a few hours later he died. And I I. I'm not a believer that Gary knew he was going to die and that's why he was obsessed with getting the show scene but it it. It certainly was strange that he he was so concerned with that issue. At that time as you say although we talked about the hyperthyroidism and pancreatitis yeah titus as not what killed him in the enter. Lisa wasn't the final thing that killed him. He he died of a blood clot that moved from his leg To his heart he had major dental surgery in Hawaii and he flew back home and and and it it it may have been the result of his other medical problems this developed. Let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining US my guest is film director Screenwriter TV and movie producer. Judd appetito and his new new book is called.

"Gary Shanley's first tonight night's show performance so you know it's funny. It's so not like anybody could have told a joke. You didn't need to be Garry shandling to tell that it's it's not a personal joke. It's not something that really comes out of his experience It's just interesting since he became so so personal as a comic since he did two shows that were basically a comedy version of his life with him playing himself. It's such a a really big journey that he took meteorically. I can only acquainted says something like music. You know the beadle start out and they do. I WanNa hold your hand or love me do and then it turns into sergeant pepper. And you know that joke is you know it's a it's a solid joke. There's been so much comedy since than that. It seems mild at this point but Gary was a great joke rider. A great writer of one liners and and bits and he evolved into something that was much deeper and more heartfelt but like a lot of people it starts out with something simpler so in talking about how Garry shandling one from you know telling jokes at other comics could tell to doing stand up. That was much more personal. That's one of the things things I asked him about when I interviewed him in December of Nineteen Ninety two and he was supposed to show up at a studio but we got a call from his publicist saying that he had car trouble and that He couldn't he couldn't make. We just did a phone interview But anyways I was talking to him here about about like develop being his voice in comedy. So let's hear a short excerpt of that and I should mention you. You include a neck. I am honored to say you include an excerpt of this in in in the documentary version of your area. Shanley's life so thank thank you for including the thank you. So here's an Xtra when you started doing standup Did you have a sense of who you wanted to be on stage. And what what aspects of your personality you really wanted to to bring out your stage persona. It was Really a nightmare. I had no idea who I was when I started and I was frightened to death and had no natural performing skills aside never performed before in my life and to be thrown onto the standup stage is an experience that you cannot fathom until you're actually there there because there's no place to go and everyone's looking at you and you can't even see them because of the lights and yet you have to manage to start talking and be funny money on top of it and At the beginning I think I did I. I wrote material. That was very much Influenced by Woody Allen. Who's WHO's my favourite and and I used to do very offbeat jokes that sounded like I was reading them and And and it took years to develop A style and actually what happened is I was involved in a relationship And the the the the girl left me and I was very hurt very hurt and I had to go up on stage and I finally just turn to the honest and said this girl lasts me. I said Well I said what happened is she moved in I I she moved in with another guy so I adopter because that's where I draw the line and so that was the beginning that was really the beginning of people of of the Garry shandling dating years in stand up that came out. You know 'cause I realize oh I I started really spill my guts about being unhurt and and people really related to it and and it just was one of those things. It was in a nightclub in Dallas. I really remember it very well. I think that's so interesting. How uncomfortable he was on stage at the beginning? And how it he. He felt like he sounded like he was reading his jokes. And Mitzi shore who owned the comedy store was very direct about the fact that she thought he was a terrible performer and she didn't like writers who tried to do stand APSO. Gary couldn't really get in at the comedy store. And then he's just started. Gigs it all these little crappy places in the valley and he. He didn't come back to the comedy store for a year and then a year later he came back and found his voice and his confidence and then they let him be a regular at the comedy store. But it is interesting that sometimes I'm just one joke unlocks the key to your whole approach. You know he had one joke. That was very honest and based on his suffering and then he realized Oh. This is the way I go down this path. So Garry shandling became a frequent guest on the tonight show and then became one of the most popular guest host of the tonight show but he decided guerre Shanley decided to stop doing the tonight show which is really surprising because he was guest hosting so much I mean it was such a privileged position to be in but he gave it up. How come the guy was doing? It's Garry shandling. showed the same time and and Gary just got tired he just said I. I can't do a great job both of those things. I think the pressure to do work. That was great. Just was almost unbearable to him that the pressure other people put him And put on him or the pressure put on himself I think he put it on himself completely and he just had a bar he was trying to reach and it was almost maddening to try to reach that bar. He just didn't mail anything in. He was obsessed with with doing something unique and amazing and I think it's exhausting in a way that people can't really understand when your mind works like that if you care and you're passionate and your soul searching it it's also a very painful full compulsive process. Let's take a short break here and then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining US my guest is film director Rector Screenwriter TV and movie producer. Judd appetito and his new book is called.

"Hi, analogous. And I'm Julia Prescott. And everything's coming up. Gary. This is the theme for today show. The theme show algae called us up and asked if we could change our format. Hey, Al how are you doing don't? I sound like Randy Newman. Don't you like the theme today show a love it? So. Dark. Yeah. No, no. That is the greatest song. And it was written in an elevator by Gary, Illinois bell. We should have a song, you know, about the show. And he goes like, this is the theme from Garry show. And by the time, they get down. He had all the lyrics. I love that got. So our gene is that voice that you hear veasley, you know. Al has come on the show and broken our format once before he said, we need to break it more. I didn't listen to that episode. It's one of my favorite episodes. You've done on having coming up. Simpson's in it is about the critic, which we obviously love and shares DNA, of course, with the Simpsons this show. Also shares DNA with the Simpsons because of so many of the writers on it for anyone who hasn't seen. It's Garry shandling show. I can't recommend it enough. It's a little hard to track down you could illegally. Download it. Or you could buy it. Maybe. But I I love this show. And if you haven't seen the documentary yet that came out about Garry shandling, definitely watch that too. Because you get some good insight on that. And Larry Sanders show. It's also great. But to talk about it at, gene. Yeah. And I just want to say I love that communities that have attended. Is in dire. I worked with the nines and Gary. And I loved him. But it was not like, oh, let's see. What's the job? Right. I mean, we'll get into it. I was going to say this is the second time, you're breaking our format. The third time. I believe you will lose it to maybe I'll podcast that Alf could be the third entry into our holy trinity. What you say Ellie absolutely making a comeback is back in L form, you Garry shandling pogs. Dow. Then I quit snake eating its tail. So yeah. Just to again, kind of rapid and for our listeners because obviously the people who listen to our show are are Simpson's nerds they wanted. Geek out about the Simpsons. You know, this obviously has so much. In addition to the writers, and people that are attached to it just joke wise, if you like the Simpsons, and you wanna live action comedy, this is this is the show for you. I mean, it does so many cartoony zany weird funny things that are I mean, I guess parody in some way making fun of other types of shows in a way that is so satisfying. So again, if you're jumping into this episode of the podcast and haven't seen the show yet. You'll still love listening to Al talk about it with us because they're just so many great things to talk about here. So don't be frightened by something new. It's going to be wonderful. You're going to the show is better than me talking. The first season. I don't know when it comes to the YouTube clips of the show. I don't know if you guys have in preparation for this show. There are some really bizarre like really tinny like, you know, those YouTube clips where it's like a copy of a copy of a copy, and then it's only in the top left corner. That's how I prepped. So that's where I'm coming from. So this is probably better than that. When it's early to say, it's funny because he did the Larry Sanders show, which is more well known in easier to Tina DVD, but when the it's curious jailing show came out objective. I think because they didn't work in the first two seasons. It was just a groundbreaking and one for nine hundred eighty six it was really unusual and while breaking exactly. But on the show was funny because we started realizing the only prison he really likes to talk to is the camera. Mirror. He's like a God..
