Alex Winter on how he and Keanu Reeves brought George Carlin's touching cameo to 'Bill & Ted Face the Music' (spoilers!)
"Jesse Thorn. Our guest is Alex Winter you probably know him best as bill from bill and Ted along with Keanu reeves he starred in bill and Ted's excellent adventure bill and Ted's bogus journey and the brand new movie bill and Ted face the music. Alex is also a director who's made several documentaries. His latest just came out a couple of months ago it's called show biscuits. It features interviews with former child stars about how their time working in the entertainment industry affected them. Let's get back to the conversation. There's a lot in this in this movie also about parenthood and the ties that bind to their and in particular how children kind of actualize the dreams of their parents in some ways for good and bad. I saw that theme also and show Biz kids. Your documentary that made me wonder if you saw parallel there to do you find that particularly compelling. I was raised by two artists. My parents were modern dancers. My mom had company in London, which is where I was born in my dad ultimately had a company in the Midwest. which is still going on when we moved to the states house quite young. I started out as a child actor professionally by like nine or ten I was working professionally by twelve thirteen I was in two long running probably shows back-back. Took me all the way into college so. My relationship to. My parents and to my family and the complexity of that and this idea of I wouldn't call destiny. That's the sort of of the movies that. But you know this idea of expectation and what is your life supposed to be, and of course, it's never going to be that and it shouldn't be that and and and how do the children affects the parents? How do the parents affect the children and of course now I'm a dad and so how'd now it's a triple layer cake right And Those are all those drams or fusing together and crazy ways and I had really wanted to make a film that allowed people who had experienced this firsthand meaning people that come up as child actors. I wanted them to be able to express the very nuanced layers of of that experience. Intimately I just had not seen that done and I had. you know obviously had done it myself in private, but I'd never kind of attacked at. So you that was very satisfying to be able to make and it was really odd to try to make show Biz because for the first time about ten years ago I couldn't find financing and it was exactly the concept. So it was very very strange to. Lovely. But strange to start making the film, shoot a bunch of interviews go away, make bill and Ted be dealing with you know Ted's problems with his dad our issues with our daughters live and our destiny that didn't end up the way it was supposed to in how did that impact everybody and you know, and then of course, like acting for the first time gangs I left act the acting business in after doing Dylan Ted to really Very consciously, and so acting again and I'm making a movie about child actors about parents and their children and it was it was like Oh did this all really need to happen at once was that necessary? I my Gosh. Every aspect of my entire life right now. So Yeah it was lovely and heavy Frankly yeah. Tell me about that decision to kind of I. Think you said, disappear for a minute and then come back and be doing more behind the scenes work than acting. Well. We talk about it in in show Biz kids and it's really not uncommon. It's. It's you know I had started acting I had a very, very public life from around ten years old to about twenty five on nonstop even through college. I was still acting on TV and doing commercials and TV shows. Nonstop and after bill and Tattoo amid and other film called freaked I was just psychologically. I was just worn out and I knew. That I was not I had some friends around me that were crashing hard at a couple that actually died. It was a pretty heavy scene. For Lot of us that had come up because we're all around the same age. So a lot of us were trying to transition from from you know sort of youth in the business too young adult business. We're not having the best time of it and and at the same time I gone to film school and was very very committed to my work as a writer director But it you know for me, I needed to make a conscious decision to get out of the public eye and just go live some normal life and I didn't feel like I'd really gotten to do that through pretty. Formative Adolescence and postal license and. Evan Rachel Wood speaks about this really well in the in the movie sodas will we? All everyone had the same experience I was sitting across from Diana Kerry, the hundred year old woman who was baby peggy, and she literally laid out my entire life story was completely jaw dropping. And that's what had happened to her when she had to really figure life out and she had to get away from the business and. And just be in the world and that's what I did I left. I left my acting representation and I moved and started a production company in London and I just shot commercials and wrote scripts and had a kid and live like regular Joe and. Got My head together and did some growing up and when I felt comfortable again, I started training again to act that was a while ago I just wanted to act for myself I didn't WanNA act. NAFTA, worry about it for paycheck I trained for a long time and it was just coincidentally had started kind of rumble back into life. But it was really lovely. It was a great way to come back can't owner. He's like, what am I, very, very dearest and closest friends in the world and. Everyone on that sat was family and if they weren't, they were really gracious and very happy to be there. So it was extremely sweet environment to step back into but Yeah, it was fun. But I I guess I needed the twenty five year break I I took it.

'Bill & Ted Face the Music' isn't excellent, but it's still kind of fun
"Ted faced the music. It's not significant nor extremely funny, but it's certainly fun. And it's so amiable that I'd be kind of a meanie to say anything too critical of it. In case you're thoroughly pop culture challenged. This is the third movie and a trilogy of Dumb Guy, Buddy Cos. That began 30 Count them 30 years ago with the time traveling Stoner Movie Bill and Ted's excellent adventure that was 1989. There was a sequel Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey and 91. These guys are best friends, suburban goofballs in one of the rock star's billing tender in high school in the original film, they're gonna fail history. Oh, and by the way, they're played by then and played by now. Alex Winter and the Evergreen Piano. Reeves. I mean piano Reeves. His career is Blowing back up. There's a big resurgence with John Wick films and The Matrix franchise is continuing, but he loves this character, and he's got a great relationship and report with Alice Winter. Eso. They've come back for this third film and You know. Initially they're visited by this hipster from the future named Rufus, who shows up in some kind of phone booth that can traverse time in space. Like like doctor who's police box, and by the way, Rufus was played by the late great comedian George Carlin, and he takes them on a trip through time to help them pass his history tests and tells them that they are going to write and record a song that will bring the world together in peace and harmony. Will, apparently by this third film. Three decades later, they still haven't written a song to sign the song. I've always felt that the world is just one song away from peace and harmony to to bad. Hey, Michael, do you exactly that I have to want hilarious.
Bill & Ted Face the Music Review
"One, thousand, nine, hundred, eighty, nine, we met bill s Preston and Ted Theodore Logan in the movie bill and Ted's excellent adventure they returned in bill and Ted's bogus journey in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety one, and now almost thirty years later they're back in bill and Ted's face the music Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves return as well. Bill and Ted respectively, and this time they'll need not just their triumphant man to save the world but also their daughters I'm Stephen Thompson and I'm Linda Holmes we're talking about bill and Ted face the music on this episode of Pop Culture Happy Hour from NPR here with me and Steven from his home studio is plan Weldon of NPR's arts desk. Linda and also with us from his home in Washington DC, we have JC Howard who is a producer of NPR's Ted Radio Hour and how I built this I. J. C.. Good to have you back good to have you back. So if you are all not familiar, there's not a lot setup that you need or these films except to say that Bill and Ted were introduced to us as teenage bro Friends who had a band and just wanted to have a triumphant band when they were older and eventually they got sucked into time travel and picking up different historical figures, and later we're going to try to save the world and there was. A whole story where they were going to ultimately right a great and triumphant song it's it is a surprisingly complex canonical story of which you need to know practically nothing in order to enjoy I think these films Stephen now that I have thoroughly set the table kind of what is your attachment to bill and Ted these movies. If you have one, well, I've seen bill and Ted's excellent adventure. A BUNCH OF TIMES I've seen bill and Ted's bogus journey a couple times. These are movies that have kind of existed on the wind for the last thirty years. I re watched these movies within the last five years I. Think I talked about the. What's making me happy on this show but still kind of needed to go back to be reminded of what happens in them going into this movie I mean this movie is coasting on goodwill. There is a certain amount of fan service going on here. I mean I'm not sure how many people were clamoring to revisit these characters almost thirty years later but at the same time. Something really really smart happens in this movie and you can tell before you even start watching it, and that is that it is ninety three minutes long all three of these movies are about ninety minutes long and I think they understand that that is the perfect lengthier. There is a certain amount of sequel bloat here. The first two movies are incredibly Chintzy. The stakes in the first one are no greater than maybe Ted we'll get sent to military school and you're there's like the entire fabric of space time can be ripped apart. This is a very shaggy movie. I. Think there are stretches where it sags but. I do appreciate the number of updates. You don't have the gay panic stuff that really dragged down the earlier movies are no gay slurs in this movie. This movie bothers to give its female characters a little bit more agency the women who become their wives barely have any part to play in the other movies, and here you get more of that you get their daughters who are given kind of their own subplot. So I appreciate that it's not just rattling around with these two dudes who are now middle aged, but they're taking an interest in people outside of just bill. Yeah and you do get their daughters. The structure of this one is kind of that they go on one journey through time and their daughters meanwhile who are played by Samara weaving and bridget lending pain go off and tried to get a band together for their DADS to play with on this epoch song that's supposed to save the world. So you kind of have the one journey going on the other journey going on then naturally in the third act it all comes together and I did like those two performances from the daughter's there are also some kind of new faces in this one kristen Schall plays Kelly who is The daughter of Rufus who was the George Carlin character in the original JC it feels to me like you are too young to have a moustache attachment to these movies but I have been assured that that is not the case because television. Yeah. That's exactly right. I was actually super excited to hear this movie was happening and I'm going to show my age a little bit and say that I was born pretty close to the release of the First Bill and Ted Movie of Bill and Ted's excellent adventure. So my first encounter with these guys was as as they say a most impressionable youth. And I was one of what I can only assume are millions of kids who watch bill and Ted's excellent adventure every time it ran on cable TV. The thing about the first movie is the problem that they needed to solve was very simple. Billon Tade just needed a good grade right granted the solution to that problem was a little larger than life and included doctor who like time travel home box and all but the problem itself was simple. The second movie bogus journey was certainly a little nuttier. It had killer robots and aliens and the grim reaper. Didn't feel like it hit quite the right notes for me. No Pun intended. So win a third film was confirmed. The main question I had was like, what are they going to do? Are they going to try to recreate the success of the original and go back to simple run of the mill time travel Orlean into the bizarre and crazy and from just the trailer? It was clear that they weren't going to just lean into the bizarre, but they were diving in head first. But I think what separated this one from the nineteen ninety one sequel is that it has a lot more heart. The original movie was really about the friendship of bill and Ted and saving that they didn't seem to care as much about saving the future as much as they wanted to just make sure that bill and Ted could still just be friends. So it had this kind of surprisingly earnest quality and I think that was what was missing in the second film in this third one for all of its bizarreness in all of its doubling down on death in heaven and hell, and all these kinds of weird things. It really reignites the idea that there are friendships and. Relationships here that are worth saving. Yeah I think you're absolutely right that they go back to the relationship between those two guys being the center of the story and I. Think it's really funny. One of the things that I think is featured in some of the the trailer stuff but they are both married they both have you know lovely wives that you have met before since they got them from the past and they have relationships with their wives that are completely enmeshed with their relationship with each other. So they can't conceive of having individual marriages that aren't some. Like a four person marriage I thought that stuff was sort of funny because I think one of the things that carries over like if you're going to take these guys in age them thirty years you have to either assume that at some point they became more normal, which is a weird thing to assume about bill and Ted. Or you have to assume that they are still very bill and Ted, which would mean that they are still kind of very fixated on this idea that they are a duo and they are always together and they are each other's right hand Glenn you had indicated on twitter that. You perhaps did not have the same nostalgia for these characters that perhaps I have and others may have what is your take care? All right. The ticker about to hear from me Linda Holmes is going to be a subjective it's rigorous. It's clear eyed it is on demand by the gauzy scream nostalgia because unlike all y'all I never saw these movies until this week just to prepare for the show and I didn't see him for very simple reason I didn't have to I. Mean I was a junior in college nineteen, eighty, nine I was studying marine biology. I was dating a string of profoundly unfulfilled women and. Being. On a college campus and eighty nine and not here boobs heinous strange things are afoot at the circle k just over and over and over. So I felt like I got it. And think about the time late eighties early nineties mainstream. American. Comedy was kind of stuck in this catchphrase based mode and I was like, okay. I don't need to see this while I've seen them all now and I'm here to tell you. Sure I guess that's your thing. I like the Guy Listeners of the leads I. think that's the appeal here but left only once an excellent adventure. It's a visual gag that gets tossed off. It's a Freud at a mall holding a corn dog and it's like, okay, fine. You got me I mean it's low hanging fruit, but you got. And in face the music this new film shore on Paper Samara, Weaving Kristen Schaal Holland freaking Taylor they are gunning for me they are coming. But ultimately didn't stick. It's not supposed to. That's not what it's for. It just evaporates on contact with the eyeballs and maybe that's exactly what the world needs. Right now is dumb sweep dumb but I
Midnight Moment 4 - Voter ID and A Conspiracy Theory - burst 1
"Jury of Nation. Part hair and it's time for another installment of Liberty Virus via the midnight moment delivery system. that. I was night three of the Democrat National Convention Day One, hundred, sixty, fifteen days flattening curb. It allows unlucky enough to over here made me throw up in my mouth a little bit I gotta be honest with you wanted to wash the taste out with out. But. In the end, I settled for for a Nice Cup of coffee. George Carlin one said I don't have pet peeves. I have made major psychotic fucking hatreds. So in the spirit of both George Carlin and my complete total annoyance with current events, we're going to cover two topics with you. Tonight the first is a voter ID, and the second as a self developed spiracy theory that I would like your indulgence to entertain as strictly a mental exercise though in our society, there are things you. Have to show ID for buying a gun getting prescription painkillers buying alcohol buying. We'd words legal of course, a buying porn. You have to show ID at the DMV the board, an airplane to board trained drive an automobile the list goes on and on and on survivor is going to be required to do any of the above things or you know conduct adulting in any way as it always is lot why states not have a? Statute that requires valid identification busted as yourself that question for a second, you may not like the answer I mean Article One section. Four of the US Constitution states the times, places and manner of holding elections for Senators and representatives shall be prescribed in each state by the legislature thereof. But the Congress may at any time by law make or alter such regulations except as to places of choosing senator I mean there was. An assumption clearly present in our constitution that citizens right to vote is protected under free speech under the First Amendment. But in a citizen right the but I mean article two section one clearly spells out that our founders framers specified who could and couldn't be president no person except the natural born citizen or citizen of the United States at the time of this adoption of this constitution shall be eligible to the office of the president. Neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained? The age of thirty five years have fourteen years been a residence within the United States our founders and framers carved out specifics. Do you really believe they had any intention any intention at all for non citizens to vote in our elections? Give me a break. So if they're going to push the agenda and by the way I'm speaking to leftists and liberals who seem to think that showing identification at a polling place is somehow minority voter suppression Oh really then I say, well, no, I devote no idea by guns no background checks ever for anything. No idea to buy booze or weed. Or board a plane. Is it. Any wonder that liberal states have started issuing driver's licenses to illegal immigrants? Because if somehow some way. We restore common sense in order to our republic and require a valid form of identification vote illegal immigrants will be their voters and their voting block. I'm not suggesting we give up the right to an anonymous ballot that's absolutely protected by the First Amendment I get it. No. One has stating that your driver's license number be attached to your ballot. But. If you can't get into a bar without id if you can't buy liquor without ID, why should you be able to access the polling place? I just want to point out and make it clear the blatant outright shitting hypocrisy and quite frankly left racism in the claim that somehow requiring an idea vote is minority suppression really I mean here in Colorado most liquor stores that I frequent require id for every transaction and believe me I do not look twenty one or younger bars and nightclubs in this area often use a barcode scanners. Id and I know that it's that way in some other states, somehow all of this is okay but somehow requiring an ID to vote arguably the most violent in the world voting is minority voter Suppression Racist Bull Shit. So as the assertion that minorities by the way don't have an ID or don't have the ability or somehow incapable of getting one, I mean the bring specificity again. Zona adults over the age of eighteen are required. To carry ID at all times. That's whether you're walking down the street driving your car or otherwise, and that has been in effect since World War. Two, this is not something new. This is not something that the Clintons or the bushes or anyone else do any time in recent history this has been the law of the land for literally decades. Whether that laws right or wrong as up to you. But really do we really need any more outside influence in our country regardless of what the political spectrum you stand on our guys we've got another segment coming up right after this break.

A conspiracy theory I fully admit it. I have no evidence of this except what may be going on around us and some thoughts that I have from the Golden Age of talk, radio in the nineties I sometimes get what I refer to as nuggets of Universal Truth from what most people would consider fairly odd sources. You know movies, songs, sports, overhearing pieces of a conversation, etc one of the things that was kind of profound to me and rain true didn't I didn't really understand the time was the movie captain America the Winter Soldier. Now there's a scene again. Tomorrow will because they're fantastic and I'm going to kind of summarize here there's a scene where they're in a bucket in they're talking to basically an all German scientists. Brain is good put on on a computer and all creepy but isn't that scene they talk about humanity's freedom came. and. One of the things that they said was if you try to take that freedom, they resist humanity needed to surrender. It's freedom willingly. And they finally created a world. So chaotic that you vanity was ready to surrender it's freedom for its own security. Now I know that sounds bizarre and maybe I'm maybe I'm just being paranoid maybe I'm suffering from the Kobe. Kobe lockdown paranoia or whatever you want to call it. The understand this if you wanted to usher in a gestapo-type National Police Force. It had no loyalty to the constitution but only the politicians you know Kinda like Nazi Germany. What would you do? Well. First of all, you'd have to get the police to quit. So if you control the purse strings for the police, department what better way to get them to quit than it, cut their wages, cut their budget and then make them liable for I. Don't know everything. What if he told them to stand down while like Portland Eighty. Three nights of rioting destroys property assaulting assaulting citizens decade the police to quit what about like new? York. They cut the budget of Major Crimes Unit and shootings have gone up. To three hundred percent. Since that happened now, I wanNA make it clear that I do not support a national police force now. Yes we can argue that yes, we have we have federal agents the DA's the ATF the FBI etc. But none of them are actively patrolling the streets but how do you do it? How do you implement a Gestapo of social justice warriors that are essentially thought police, which is what the what's the leftist seem to want anyone that that goes contrary to their narrative anyone that disagrees with any they say politically. Well if you get all the local cops to quit, you have to have something because your citizens will not bag. For protection somebody did is friendly to that idea wins the White House than the Federal Police Force. Is created and then we end up like Nazi Germany. They're already talking about making kids where buttons identified that they either have or have not been vaccinated for Covid. Nineteen. One. Just go out and do yellow stars. Pink triangles. Any sense does you have to question yourself and even do the mental exercise of what's the end game now? This Shit I. GotTa Tell Ya None of it looks good.

"Carlin is doing as a philosophy and it's sorta timeless because good philosophy's always always true. His stuff does an agent. A lot of comedy has age really badly and his his dozen he. I mean there's an amazing bit goes around the Internet where he says about government that you don't have any rights you just have the rights that they want you to think you have right and it's a really remarkable long routine where he just talks about the entire game being rigged and I've never been conspiratorial but you feel like the world has become more and more trend. You see the relationships between countries and governments and and what is allowed to happen? And what are People's motivations are doing things and it is hard not to think that a lot of with George George. Carlin said about financial interests controlling the government. And how a lot of what we think is reality. Isn't it's like meant to sedate you so you won't question anything. That was a big thing he talked about. They want you on your gadgets. They don't want you to get a good education so that you don't pay attention to what's happening. Well I have a a thought. I'm I'm going to tease 'cause I got to run a quick spot here but I I realized with guys like Carlin and and others where you go. What information do you have? Do you have documents? That aren't there unredacted. Or what what? What have you gotten your hands on? That gives you the information but in a way if you have a brain like George Carlin you have all the information. Because you're always reading the tea leaves around you. You don't need documents you know what I mean. You have a way of thinking. That has such clarity to it that you can suss. These things out other people need evidence. You have your own divining Rod your brain and you you see so much truth where other people. Don't talk about that in a second. I hit True Nigerian heard about.

"Had apple town is joining us. Of course writer director stand up comedian. Don't sleep on the STANDUP comedy. Just because you're a great writer and a great director. Let's not sleep on Judd appetite. Stand up comedy. The King of Stanton Island is the name of the movies available on demand. June twelfth I watched it last night and I have Many complimentary thoughts. Thank you very much It was A as as as you progress or as you mature as a filmmaker. I feel like you're just getting into more nuanced kind of human stories and and less broader you know based based humor that a fair statement. Yeah I mean I think my intentions early Where to try to make a movie? That was as funny as like the hard comedy movies that I love that also were credible emotionally and good stories. But I certainly was thinking. I'd like to tear the house down every ten minutes and a lot of movies at that time. That kind of amazing like something about Mary and I always can. You Combine Dot Kinda high comedy with real emotions and I think you know this movie. I thought well this is a drama and I. I hope it's funny enough for people but I'M GONNA value the story most and it'll be as funny is it's GonNa be it'll reveal itself to me. How funny it should be because there's a lot of colorful people in it and what was great was when we tested it. Nobody said Oh. This isn't as funny as the other ones. And so that made me happy. Because I think it's a it's a really good story and it's very emotional but it still has as big last but I didn't value the laugh as much usually usually pretty obsessed with like the laugh counts and how hard it's crushing. Well the it's very funny movie but it's it's organically funny. I'm not going to give away too much. But there's a scene with bill. Byrne is kid and a tattoo and it's all very plausible an organic and it's also super funny and I guess that's what you want. I mean it's a situation and bill burs great in this by the way it's amazing. I was rescheduled good actor. I was really. I shouldn't say surprise although just flew out of my mouth but he really shows his acting chops in this movie. There's a scene that is really funny where he meets. Marisa Tomei that is completely organic and hysterical and and filled with a lot of sort of human humanness. Well I don't think you know. His acting career has been his highest Priority you know. He's not a lot of great acting things but I think this is the most he's had to do the most challenging part for him but from working with them you would think he had been doing it for the last thirty years as the only thing he does. He just was ridiculously strong and super funny and also really cared about the character. He wasn't just I score. He really created this. This person is like blowhard. Firefighter who starts dating Davidson's mother right. And it was just really fun to watch. And I guarantee you every great moment in that movie was bill thought of on the set. I mean he was a great collaborator for creating. That are actor and being loose and improvising. This special moments. There you we worked on together in rehearsals improvisations. He just brought a ton to now I was I was blown away by. How great actress but you know. Unfortunately we started the show off by you. Know me saying that Writer director producer. Judd APP Dow. But but stand up Jeddah potato but the way we work as well jet apt as a writer and director and then I guess we'll let him do a little bit of stand up and then bill burr a stand up and I guess we'll carve out a little room in our brain for him to be an actor is well but they both things can be true. You can be a great stand up and be a great actor and you can be a great director and a great stand up. We're just not wired to accept that you know. Yeah I think it you know as we've seen more and more people do it. We buy that. It's all part of the same thing it's storytelling. It's figuring out how to be funny and emotional and it. It's all part of your creativity. I mean bill is the one of the great comedians of all time in a when I you know work with bill and get to see him up close you know when you see him from eight feet away from the wings you realize. Oh there's nobody liked this guy and I'm always amazed at his energy every show feels like it's the last show of his career and he's giving it everything he's got. Just the passion on stage is pretty remarkable but if anyone wants to see my stand up by the netflix special. That's the only plug for that. I'll do but it's you know it. It's there and it's weird that everyone can't do stand up now. I keep talking to friends and going. Are you having a nervous breakdown and weirdly nobody is? It doesn't feel like anybody is having that time with giving it a break. Because they're we have friends that haven't taken more than two days off in twenty five years. So that's that's tough change of life it is and I think in a in a in a way. Maybe it's like a death you know like maybe if you said to somebody who was deeply in love with his wife and if you said hey if something happens to. Luanne could go on and they'd go now I couldn't go on I'd I'd get into a fetal position. I never come out and she dies a breast cancer. And then you see him. Six months later neo. Introduces you to his new lady friend and like maybe every stand up comedian. I've known if I went three days without doing standup I would lose the ability to speak in front of people like I couldn't form thoughts or sentences. But there's something that's been a little strange about this self-imposed or governmental and imposed Sabbath that we've all been experiencing like you're almost forced.

Joan Rivers: Can We Talk?
"Joan rivers career spanned nearly six decades she started with cabaret and off Broadway shows in the late fifties and then became a star of late night television hosting the tonight show and the late show with Joan rivers and eventually the daytime Joan rivers show in the nineties. She was best known for her comedic and sometimes mean-spirited interviews with celebrities on the Red Carpet John. Style was self deprecating abrasive. Everyone was fair game including herself. She charted new territory and comedy by telling stories from her own life combined with her willingness to talk about taboo subjects like hot flashes sagging bodies bad sex and marriage problems. You may have noticed that we borrowed our podcast. Name can talk from this hilarious. Talented and complex Jewish woman. Can we talk? Was Jones signature. Tagline sometime. She's it as a punchline. Sometimes it was a setup. It was an invitation to her audience. A signal that she was about to confide in them. Here's Joan on the show in the early. Nineteen Eighty S. I would not cheat. I would not cheek Maine because nobody asked me but I not because I think why we talk. I think my husband's spooner man okay. Which is very hard to save. I feel very close to you. I especially if you can. We talk was also Jones way of calling attention to her flaws and other people's her way of saying let's stop pretending and tell the truth here. Can we talk? Let me tell you something. The reason I have nothing happy the way I'm blessed is because I'm getting older at least seven very drop because Oh oh you don't know what it's like to get older too. You know what it's like to go in the morning to take facial mask and realize you're not wearing what so. Why did we borrow her? Tigon FOR OUR PODCAST. When we started the show Joan had recently died and we were all steeped in the debate about her role and her complicated legacy as brilliant and hilarious. But also crass and sometimes cruel. We love that. She had so many dimensions and that she believed in telling the truth about women's lives and expanding the range of models. We see all things we knew we wanted to do to. We also liked that. Can we talk was an invitation to our audience to join us in this project of storytelling and with that. Here's a wonderful interview from J W as archive recorded in two thousand six for our documentary. Jewish women in comedy making trouble. Joan talks about her early days at the Chicago. Comedy Clubs Second City being a woman on Johnny Carson's tonight show and playing midwestern clubs as New York Jewish comic later in the interview. She talks about going back to work after her husband's suicide in nineteen eighty seven. She starts by telling Interviewer Rachel. Talbot about a fight. She had with her parents over her decision to go into comedy. I left my house in pedal pushes enter old car that I used to drive and went to New York in speaking of the year and it was just awful and my dad wrote me a letter say that we are going to You'd better come home or we're going to have you committed. I was living in the bars on hotel for women and my dad wanted says and pulled me out. It was a scene. I think they ever forgot dragged me out. It was just horrible scene Harles. They just thought I was really life as though question about it. They just couldn't accept that. This is where I was going to end. This is all I could do so the I went back home and then I went away. Yeah it was just awful and then Pity yes that was great. Second City was very competitive. It was six of US thrown on stage. And it was make up your own lines and get your own scenes going and everybody wanted to be the star second city and everybody wants to get their stuff and so it wasn't like being gracious. It was like I got a better idea I wanted. It was very competitive and that was great too. I learnt in second city. You have to talk up and I learnt the freedom of you. Think it's funny try it. Don't wait don't think about it. I still do that if freed me. It taught me to be tough. It taught me to fight. If you thought you're Si was good you went into four four and a taught me co with your instinct. Only do what you truly think is going to be funny. It changed my life and then you you came back to New York Nissan. You learn so much from second cities are how had your comic persona change came. When I came back with second city I was myself onstage. Good bed or different. I was what I was and I was a divorced when no Jewish smart college graduate not particularly attractive girl on stage and I was telling you about my life. It wasn't about my mother-in-law was about what I'm going through my mother's hysterical because I'm single and I'm having an affair with a married man and my gay friends. What happen to my gay friends and it was all about truth. The first routine that really worked. I had a WIG hairpieces. I was driving into New York to perform at this club. And the WIG flew out of the window and a car drove over it and I said there I was walking on the west side highway. With a dead Wigan my arms had says firestone on and no one stops and all the truth and taking the truth and exaggerated and it just opened me up. I never went back. I never went back to. He's so fat that unless I really believe when did you find out Johnny Carson? Nothing in my career. I think that's why I was that you log come easily ever. I've never been the first on anything all my friends. And that time I was working the village with my George Carlin and Richard. Pryor all these wonderful men everybody got through everybody was on Carson and on Griffin and I was brought up seven different times to the Carson show. I was finally rejected by Secretary. Who is eating lunch while I was performing? I mean beyond humiliating. I got on because the night before some comic bom so they called me up and they said you can come on but not as a comedian. They had no faith in me. They brought me on as a girl writer and at the end of the show at the end of that night on air. Johnny Carson said to me you're going to be a star it was maisy and I look behind me. I couldn't believe and the next day. My life change changed overnight. They were getting all these calls and stuff. Was there ever a feeling of like? Oh you're to New York reports. I was doing costume regularly. I don't think it was hosting really I was you know the Golden Girl Carson and the ages come back and say you to New York to Jewish you to New York and my husband was married by that point. Ed You said this is ridiculous. He said picked the worst city in the country. And they said Milwaukee they still have been meetings. This is nine hundred seventy. There's still enclaves. They dress up Nazi uniforms and saw Adolf stand. He said center Milwaukee. And let's see and they sent me to Milwaukee and I was. They had to change the size of the room and put in the ballroom. Our I put originally in a little hotel the pfister in their little comedy room and they had to over the ball and put me in so that changed everything they said. Okay America will get her. I mean people begin to put little pockets and it's so stupid because funny is funny. You're minutes was using back on state. What was that decision? The decision was very simple. One I know money I had to go back to work. I didn't have the luxury of being the widow in the house on the hill so I had to go back to and nobody wanted me and Vegas gave me back my contracts. 'cause isn't nobody wants to see anybody that has that kind of you would just fired. would terrible glistening one out that. I was very hard to work with It was just all wrong all wrong. I was banned from late night. I've never been brought back ever not one late night show So I was really struggling my career and I had all these bills. Listen was in. It was just a bad time so I went back to little nightclubs. I said well I'll start again. I went back and started doing little like us and out of that came the red carpet
Embodied Presence (Part 2) - Planting our Roots in the Universe - Working with Pain
"There's a story about a Buddhist master pastor who was asked how come he meditated and his response was to see the tiny purple flowers by the side of the road. I say walk to town each day and that to me uses beautiful a reason any our last talk car for the last live talk was on embodied presence. How this waking up to the life of our body coming home to the aliveness of our senses really is the gateway to everything we long before we can really wake up in our bodies we can wake up to our cart art loving and we can wake up to our full wisdom and so what I'd like to do is continue that this will be part two and what what we'll do is we'll look at both the challenges of waking up in our bodies and also the gifts and as we explored a couple of weeks ago one Buddhist master put it really well when he was asked to describe the world has response was lost in fought and there? We go when we look back on. Today it's pretty easy to sense how much we're in that trance manse that kind of virtual reality of of thoughts and often. It's easy to see. In retrospect how little we were actually awake in our bodies and our senses and we know that's the way it goes that we spend a lotta time not only in thoughts in thought sick at us tight like worry the thoughts and like judging thought and like planning when we don't need to keep planning or rehearsing we don't need to rehearse type thoughts so we see that we spend time in those kind of virtual realms than we're not so often aware of the life that's here and this is true even even when we get sometimes into our contemplacion's of the spiritual mysteries or one step removed from from full here nece one of my favorite of this end stories of a young monk who who asked the Abbot of the monastery will what happens after we die and the APP. It said I don't know and the monk was kind of alarm armed said but I thought you were a zen master and his response was I and but not a dead one and so it's a really interesting inquiry about the role of thoughts because we need them to survive and flourish and they do service on the spiritual path and were dictated to our thoughts. We get lost in thoughts. That don't serve us as we well know. And and in the deepest way if we don't know how to step out of this ongoing conceptualizing we can't really contact contact directly the reality that's here. We can't truth directly when we can't get out of thoughts we can't it feel the fullness of love when we're really wide open 'cause thoughts create a matrix where there's a self and other and a sense of separation so we I need to wake up at of our thoughts and the challenges and here's the bottom line challenge that when we wake up out of thoughts and come into our bodies were coming being into the wilderness. Because we're coming into the domain where it can fuel raw and we're there commune intensity of pleasure and unpleasant S. Yes and pain and so there's this inner weather systems we can't control them. We're just if we're opening to our bodies we're just feeling what's there and it's much easier to remove ourselves and stay in the mental control tower. We dissociate I was love. George Carlin's as he says I'm not into working out. My motto is no pain no pain and the reality is we. Don't like hanging out with pain. You know we want to fix it or get away from it in some way so we'll look at together a how we can practice when we do have physical or emotional pain. We'll look at that some and and I'm curious how many of you have noticed when you started meditating that you do find. You have a lot of pain that you're working with. Can I see by hands chiefs. So there's a lot of us for those of you. That are watching. That was probably fifty percent and and that's just like right now. Now are a lot of pain. All of US experienced pain at some time or rather I can save for myself that I've had my reasonable ables share. I had a period where had pretty ongoing chronic pain for about six years sometimes acute not always acute chronic chronic which can be exhausting and of course I know many people that have had it way worse but I know what it's like to sit down to meditate and everything in me is going. I don't WanNa be feeling this. You know I just don't want to sit with us. So if Meditation Means Waking Up to the Yuckiness that we're filling in a body. Obviously we're not GONNA be that drawn to it. So let's. Let's look at this but I wanna I emphasize besides that even when we're not experiencing chronic or acute pain are default and this is built into your brains are default setting when there's any kind of stress at all and that's a lot of the time is to leave our bodies we immediately go to how control things and fix things and we leave our bodies and you might have noticed that the more stress do you get. I always liken this to riding a bicycle physical and we're riding away from presence in the more stress we get the faster were peddling to kind of get somewhere and do something and fix something and then with there's that sense there's not enough time you notice that one. How often we feel? There's not enough time. So we leave Steve and relieve even when there's just ordinary unease we leave our bodies and we kind of go into. We'll go into that kind of some habit of the mind or behavior. Take us away from that discomfort. Some years ago I read a story that was called by a doctor who is the OBGYN and he described when he was very very new in practice. How I'm he was gotten really nervous and self conscious when he was doing pelvic exams for women? It really made them uncomfortable comfortable so he developed this kind of unconscious habit of whistling when he was doing the exams and one day describes her one he was doing doing exam on one woman and she started giggling and then she started laughing and he said Oh. What's wrong in my tickling? You and she said Oh. No no doctor. But what you're whistling is. I wish I were an Oscar. Mayer Leaner so we leave we we get into our habits and some of them are more Some of them cause more harm. Some of them don't cause harm but the deal is the more more intense artists comfort the more fully we dissociate and when I say that we as a society were associated with the more that we are struggling with war or with natural disasters with societal oppression like racism that it creates a feeling of unsafe to be in this body. I remember Tanya how she coats put so powerfully. How being African American and this country means it is unsafe to be in your body so rather than stay with that and the same thing with our personal life so many any of experienced abuse really deep wounding and very early on this is our our survival mechanism we leave the site where it feels most uncontrollable and painful? So let's look at what happens when we leave. What happens when we dissociate and I look at it like we all are somewhat associated and we all know we get lost in virtual reality and forget to be here but what happens what happens when we leave the aliveness sits here and one? There's unprocessed fear when there's vulnerability that we have an attended two or one thing is fatigue because it takes energy to maintain association.

High Court Strikes Down Law That Barred Trademarking 'Immoral' Words

There will probably be a rush to get trademark protection for brand names that use obscene vulgar, even racist language. That's because the supreme court struck down a long standing federal law that bars federal trademark protection for immoral and scandalous language as NPR's Legal Affairs correspondent, Nina totenberg reports the challenge to the law was brought by the owner of a clothing line called, I'm going to let Nina take it from here. The line is called f you see T. You can sound it out yourself. I am not allowed to now. Anybody can trademark brand, but a government approved trademark gives the holder. Extra protection? And in this case, the government denied trademark for F U, C T, citing a federal law that bans such protection for immoral or scandalous names yesterday. The supreme court struck down that law by a six to three vote an odd coalition of the courts, conservative and liberal justices declared that the law violates the first amendment guarantee of free speech because it disfavor, certain ideas, an equally odd combination of three justices disagreed and would have upheld. The law, applying it only to profane, vulgar, and obscene, brand names, and now experts are predicting a race to trademark all kinds of sexually explicit and racist, brand names lawyer Jacqueline lesser specializes in trademark matters. I do believe that this will open the door to indiscriminate applications for terms and words that many or most of us find to be really awful. This is not the first time the supreme court has struggled with this dilemma, though, in a somewhat different context in the nineteen seventies in the pre cable era, comedian George Carlin set out to determine what words he could say on TV and radio I wanted to list because nobody gives you lease. They don't give you a list, wouldn't you think it'd be normal if they didn't want you to say something to tell you what it is, as he put it there were at the time. Lots of descriptions, for forbidden words dirty filthy foul raunchy rude. Crude lewd, less sivvy's indecent profane, obscene blew off color Carlin ended up with seven famous dirty words. All I could think of. And those were the so called seven dirty words that the Federal Communications Commission barred from the airwaves and in nineteen seventy six the supreme court upheld that list ironically in yesterday's F, U, C, T, case dissenters, and at least one of the justices in the majority suggested that the trademark office should have made a similar list, or in the alternative. They suggested congress should make a list like George carlin's in a new statute as chief Justice, John. Roberts, put it in his dissent, the first amendment, protects the freedom of speech. It does not require the government to give aid and comfort to those using obscene vulgar, and profane modes of expression or as Justice Samuel Alito in the majority, put it in a separate opinion. For himself, only our decision does not prevent congress from adopting, a new statute, more focused on obscene, vulgar, and profane brand names. It's not at all clear. However, that the five other justices in the majority would uphold such a statute. So stay tuned.

I mean, well, the when that I think that when guys start to really especially guys who were prolific and guys who were you know, fighting the power punching up. You know, I it starts to get dark. You know what I mean? I think I don't think anything happened to Carl another, then he he got old, and he got more cynical. And you know, make sense. How else was he gonna go? I. Yeah. That's a good point. In other words, you've been doing it your whole life, and you still talking about the same stuff. Yeah. And, and it gets end and certain things aren't resolved. And certain things are getting worse for a guy like him pointing out the hypocrisies. You know, you're gonna get overwhelmed eventually and just be like fuck it all. Yeah. Fuck it. Yeah. But what I liked about. George was t took shots at both sides. Yeah. Anyone after political correctness which I've surest tastic, you know, sure you gotta get the balance gotta figure out the balance is creative. Power, man. That goes through all of us, you can't try to tame it and say, you can say this, you can't say that. Well, it's all up to you. I mean, there's no law that says you can't you just gotta make sure where you got figure out where it's coming from, and whether or not, you know, you're okay with that three do. But do you feel I don't feel I'm in control of that when I'm really in touch with something things commodity like in one? Like in one two minute, like like I used to be ver-, and all this bullshit, hair and, and all came in one what beaver oh I had this bit. But leave it to be. But came like an flat. Yeah. You know. Right. So that creative energy, you have to turn off me anyway. Yeah. It's turn off the editor. Yeah. You know, especially when you're onstage I've had stuff, get away from me that I do regret. Yeah. You know, when I said, certain things, yes stage, but, you know, you look like Michael Richard is that who played my riches? Yeah. So he leaves a sitcom. Then he goes on state. Yeah. And he doesn't realize it's like a war out this sometimes somebody heckled him. He just says, whatever comes up now he's, you know, life Freia life sentence. Yeah. I mean I, I don't know. Like, you know, it wasn't that he was on a sitcom, but it wasn't like he was he was coming back to the stand up stage. I don't know that he's ever really. His racket really, you know and it got away from him. Yes. Sure brilliant, physical act, funniest help, but I mean, I think that, that I don't think that there are those moments that, you know, you make mistakes. But I think it's the committing to the mistake and then defending it like I think it's more about like, you know, is this? Am I correct? And where it's coming from in my heart, like do I feel alright with that. And if you can answer that with a yes, then you shouldn't have any problems defending yourself. But if it's dubious, you should figure out why for yourself and then decide whether it's worth it. Wow. That's pretty good. Well, you know what I mean? Yeah. I mean it's like you is it that, don't you write that down those pretty good. Well, you know, I think about all the time, because there are fights to be thought..

"And and part of that was doing theater and plays, but comedy itself wasn't didn't seem like you know where my head was at all. Just improv specifically, though, it sounds like Denison where you went to college, has the oldest improv comedy group there? Is that right? And that's the claim? Well, so I mean, improv obviously, ended up being a big part of your life that was the seat of the interest for you there. It was a friend of mine and we both decided to go down and audition, and I didn't really know anything about improv. I'd never really taken any improv classes. So the whole idea kind of scared me, but we thought that might be fun to do and it was very low keyed. It was student run improv group. And you could only audition when you were a freshman. They didn't. They did not dish anybody else. So you kind of became a lifer once once you got in as a freshman, then you would go through the entire your college career as part of the group, and they still do that to this day, but no wasn't really on my radar before that. And so you did that all the way through. You're also doing, and this may be news to some people. You are also doing Shakespearean. You're doing other dramatic stuff. Yeah. So it wasn't like you yourself had a clear idea at that point. I'm a guy that's gonna be a comedy person. Sounds like it was very fluid. I actually didn't think it would be comedy. I didn't think that would be my way in because thought of doing standup was terrified yet there's no way I could do that. And I knew at the time I saw people like Steve Martin George Carlin I saw what they did, and there was I just didn't possess that that kind of ability and. And I didn't really think about comedy career wise. I really didn't think about acting career wise at that time. I just thought this is a fun thing to do even college, but I'm still going to go to law school. What change that? It was my application to law school, which there's an essay question that asks why he want to be an attorney, and I couldn't have no idea. There was no good answer. So then then I decided to take a detour and move to Chicago. But even then I thought acting I wasn't there was whatever I could get, whatever I could be hired to do. That was the idea. So how then once you were in Chicago, did you, which I guess is has always or for a long time been associated with with comedy and improv? Is that the reason it was just more of it there? That's how you ended up in that more at second city, and also, you know, doing variety of other things while they're like, what led you down the comedy route. Once you're there, we'll Chicago as a sick. City seemed much less intimidating than New Yorker LA for young actor. I just wanted to work and I figured it's a smaller pawn. So maybe the availability just to work and I wasn't looking, I thought, well, you move to LA if you're ready more, you moved to New York. If you're ready or you want to be discovered, I wasn't looking to be discovered..

"But then if you look that he followed that up with a two thousand thirteen film called Speiss warriors, which no one really saw and it's getting really bad reviews. It sounds like the George Carlin state is trying to get some money and they're involved with this, but I'm hoping it's good. I would rather see. I think the Netflix limited series version of the against. You didn't hear me. Then theatrical feature film, Brad, I know you're a big comedy guy. What what do you think about this. Yeah. I mean, it's kind of, like you said, like, I wish there was somebody who was more of a relevant screenwriter and continued to work after their, you know, big successful screen play with tackle attic that I feel like George Carlin deserve that. So yeah, I don't know. I guess you know, maybe maybe it's something he's passionate enough about that. He can do another good job and write something as good as moneyball was, even though I magic and you know that Aaron Sorkin a lot to do with that. But yeah, I don't know. I'm interested to see it. Hopefully, it doesn't turn out to be some. You know, cheesy made for TV level movie yet. George Carlin deserves better than that, but we got speed ahead with your star. We were already like way over our time here. But let's talk about Steven Spielberg's next film, west side story as a remake west side story, they've cast. The star baby driver. Chris toast butter? Yes. So Ansel Elgort I guess they sell you say his name in if it's not. I don't care because it's a stupid name. No, I'm sorry. I'm just kidding. But yeah, the star of baby driver is now going to play the male lead in Steven Spielberg's big west side story remake, although they're calling it not so much a remake as they are another adaptation of the the, the musical play. So this is the first real casting. We've had this film. Apparently Spielberg is going through a rigorous casting sessions. He's trying really hard to get this cast right, and he's not been having the best luck. So this is the first name attached the film, and I'm sure others will follow soon because they have to start shooting sooner or later. What do you think of him being cast? Like? Do you think he's a good actor for this project? I feel like Spielberg has this really weird thing. Our easily being drawn to these really bland guys like the guy in ready player won't. Thai Sheridan ease, really boring. This guy is kind of boring. I mean, baby driver shoot. He's got like, you know, I guess like dance moves because there were, you know, there's an opening where he's walking down the street and he's he's, he's dancing around. So I guess he'll do fine with that. But I mean, he spent most of baby driver kinda just like frowning and not saying stuff, so I can't really picture him as a good actor, but maybe you know, I'll be proven wrong. I don't know. Yeah, not particularly excited about this a bit of casting, but it's it is a Steven Spielberg film. And even though I'm not a huge west side story fan, I, I will say anything Spielberg so we'll keep an eye on this and see who else he casts in this musical adaptation. But let's move on to our next story. To some information about what sex Neider had planned for his version of the DC EU. Apparently he wanted to kill Batman at some point. Of course, Brad tell us about it. Yeah, buckle up. Bruce Bamiyan was going to go down in Zack Snyder's plan vision of the entire DC extended universe. We've learned in the aftermath of Batman, superman and Justice league Zach Snyder initially had a five movie plan for what he was going to do with DC comics, characters involved in these movies, and at some point along the way he was going to kill off, Batman, they're a Twitter user posted an image that kind of looks like an icon of some sort like a sticker that you might have gotten when you were checking in on foursquare or something of soup..

"It's weird to engage with these people because like you said, they all believe that they are in the majority in the really isn't that many people that like the movie and try to have conversations with these people as weird because like you try to present evidence to them and they early willing to look at their selective evidence like look at this audience score on run tomatoes, and I was like, well, we've already seen, you know, people have studied that audience score and you know the majority of those people that voted on the audience score. Our first time users, rotten tomatoes that have opened up accounts, you know, be right. The day of that the that they voted. If you go to like IMDB, which has a large audience score, a large readership voting for that movie. It's like a seven point five out of ten, which I, I'm not gonna say it's a, you know, a rating, the great movie, but that's a very positive rating critically, it's done well, it still as right now, the best. Elling Blu Ray this year above Black Panther. So I think if people didn't like the movie, why would they be buying the Blu-ray? I, I just think don't think this narrative. This narrative just bothers me like it's fine to dislike the movie. I even have problems with the movie. I've talked Ryan Johnson about my problems with the movie. We've had public discussions on Twitter, but I don't think it's a perfect movie. I know Chris one of the people that thinks it's the best Star Wars movie. I disagree, but I liked the movie a lot. And I, I do think there is room to dislike the movie, but realize that you're not in the majority that is just the vocal majority, which no, it's consisting of some politically driven stuff and some bought s-. Yeah, I, I think that's what you had to come to. I, I hope people listening to this podcast or not in that mindset, but I don't know. Yeah, It's. it's. And on the same level. Why does everyone even not everyone, but why do these select people even care if they are like, who cares? If people don't agree with you? Like it's just a weird way of approaching life. Like if you don't like something, why do you need so many other people to not like it with you? And the same goes with legs. If you like something, you really shouldn't give that much shit if everyone else likes it or not, just just like the things you like and dislike the things you like that that's really haunt boil down to. But yeah, I guess that's impossible for some people these days. I don't know why. Well, there. I agree with you, Chris. There is a lot of investment because this is a franchise that people have followed all their lives and they've, you know, not only invest a lot of time, but probably money like you look around my home. It's like Star Wars, statues, figures, posters. You know what I mean? Second understand if they didn't like this movie. They might take it personally, but I, I agree with you many which we need to move on. We could talk about this all day. I think the next story I wanted to talk about is something I wrote for the site that George Carlin by OPEC will be scripted by a m- one of the writers of moneyball. No, not Aaron Sorkin or Steve's that went zalin. It's actually this guy named STAN Chevron who is credited for the story of money ball, a story credit on moneyball and it's it's unclear if this is going to be a feature film or. Or going to be released the atrophy or for streaming, or even if this could be a limited only gotta hit. This is where limited series. The answer for two thousand eighteen. Throw your phone away, just throw it away. I spent a lot of money on it. Okay. Yeah. Anyways, I am a big fan of George Carlin. I loved his comedy. He pushed the boundaries. He was a proponent for free speech. I don't really know much about him his life story to be honest with you. Other than like, I watched the all his comedy specials. I was always a fan. I would be interested in seeing bio-pic from him, but it seems like this guy that they hired to write this. You know to give you an example after moneyball credit moneyball credit is kind of impressive..

And this is the first it's kind like not like one of those beloved fairytale stories that they're trying to adapt. I guess, lady and the tramp isn't a fairytale story either. But you know, every time I go to Disneyland, the stitch merchandises like out of control there is like they sell so much merchandise based on that movie I, it was only a matter of time before this is going to happen. I can imagine that stitch will be like a CG creation and we'll have a young, Hawaiian star kind of I almost picture kind of like, you know. It would being optimistic here, Chris, but I think if done right, this could be like a fun mwana. I've action kind of movie, I guess. I mean, yeah, there's material is there to do something good. It's just, I don't know. I'm just getting. This film was so recent. There's really no reason for Disney to remake it. I don't know why they're so hell bent them. I mean, I know why they wanna make money, but. It's getting a little tiresome. There's remaking everything, but there's definitely the chance this could turn out. Well in the movie has such great style has some good music, but it doesn't really have a strong story, Brad. Do you have any connection with Leland Stitcher? You excited for live action remake. I really liked to Leila Wednesday, which when it came out, it's not one of my favorites or anything like that. But I think that it's it's pretty funny and I can see where it had the potential for like maybe like an Amblin kind of style live action movie because it had has flares t. and things like that.

I saw weirdo yankovic there. I saw George Carlin. Wow. I saw, oh, who else? It was cool because it's a rotating state been there MAG. Long Island, it's it's like it's not our biggest venue by any means, but it's cool venue because it's it's the stage rotates in a circle. So it's theater in the round. Yeah, but, but you're every seat is from a concert in the seventies or something where it's rotating like Nassir asked, but just so that everybody can see. Oh, yes, very. It's like watching feeder at the top of a toll building in a restaurant yet as rotating inside the scandal rotating restaurants that they have the top of Super Bowl buildings only like one, no, there's a bunch of them in garden city. A bunch of them not all, but how so? So it's like watching theater on the ground level on the top. Well. Probably phantom of the opera. I'm Broadway. Yes. How old were you? Do you think see, this is what's difficult I got into. I learned a lot about musicals because my cousin was doing community theatre at a place called cultural arts, playhouse cap. And the first thing he was Tommy and that's what got me into the idea of musicals because Tommy's. Super cool. Meko. Can you send your Tommy song me? Look at me Tommy here. I am. I've never seen it. And so good for my memory yet. I love Tommy and it was the first I think what I was most interested in was that it was a two disc set that it was so good.

"Hi, I'm Ellen Tepper today on beyond podcasting, we'll be discussing branded RSS in the euro of platform expulsion. Thanks. What shooting into beyond podcasting dot com way. We recognize that your online radio show is much more than just a podcast. Your show can be broadcast live, which is not a podcast. Your show can be heard on a website, which isn't a podcast either. Of course, you're online radio show can and shoot also be syndicated as a podcast by RSS where your listeners can subscribe using the standard pod catcher, or you'll shows own branded app, Android, and I o s beyond podcasting dot com. Kevin microphones interfaces, mixers, production, software recording techniques, based practices and mall. Now enjoy another episode, yon podcasting dot com. With your host, Alan Taber, you're listening to be on podcasting Mellon Tepper in the studio in Miami, Florida. And we have Chris curry of podcast engineering school from Colorado. I believe Colorado Springs is that. Correct, Kris. That's right. Colorado Springs about an hour, south Denver, right at the foot of pikes peak. Very interesting. Well, Chris has already become a regular since this is the second time that he's coming on beyond podcasting, so welcome back. Chris. Koren happy to be here. If you would understand the joke, I might say welcome back kotter. Oh, yeah, Mr. gun Mr. Qatar. Exactly. Well, today were here to talk about something different. Something that we haven't talked about before on beyond podcasting, and the name of the show is branded. S s in the area of platform expulsion and that requires lots of explanation. And Chris, of course, is the man behind podcast engineering school, and he's really, really good in audio recording and post production. But he's a podcast her and I wanted to have a friendly podcast or with me to stop me when I say things that are too complex and need some explanation. So that's why asked. This to come with us today, and I appreciate it. Chris, that you're here, I should have brought my whistle. I could blow my whistle when I wanna stop you. Yes, yes. Even though your site kick berry is not there. I might occasionally stop and say, what would bury say because of this situation or something like that. Yeah, several things in the explanation here before we get into the nitty gritty and some of the newbies in this medium might be asking at the very, very beginning, what's in our s s? So let's talk about that a little bit for a minute, and then we'll go forward from there. And I like to make some analogies as we go along. There's the official words that come behind it, which is rich site summary, although a lot of people just call it real simple syndication, and even though that's not the official name for it, I like that nickname that it has because it has to do with syndication. And if we do the analogy of a conventional AM or FM radio station, Kris, have you ever visited one in in your history? Yes. Yeah. Few times actually once when I was in cub scouts when I was real young, but but in my adult life, yeah, a few times I've been radio stations. In fact, you just brought the memory I knew had gone as a kid, but I didn't remember. And I think it probably was with cub scouts also. Yeah, that's great to know. Well, I like to make the distinction that if you're in the lobby, if you haven't come in back to the part where the offices in the studios are because there's usually a lobby and there's usually a big speaker on the wall and that speaker was just the speaker. It was connected to their board in their master control where you would hear what's being broadcast. It wasn't a radio. It was the actual signal of the radio before it went out to the transmitter. So when people come in depending on how you set up your show, of course, but at least with mine when people come in the visit directly on my website and they press play, it's like they're in the lobby of the radio station. It hasn't gone through our assess. It hasn't been syndicated and that's why I like that nickname because it includes the word syndication because of. We always want our shows to be syndicated on lots of different platforms. And of course the popular platforms include what used to be called. I tunes and now it's gradually being converted into apple podcasts and Google podcasts and tune-in Stitcher all these different platforms because we want to be heard as many places as possible. So my analogy is when you're sitting in the lobby of the radio station, it's like when you're on the website, at least the way mine is set up in it, maybe different the way each individual person sets it up because some of the people set up the website so that it's actually using a player that is connected through our assessment, depends how it set up, but at least the way mine is it's playing the MP three directly.

"So go to open lodge at the top of the hour on coast to coast am but we'll go to calls for kelly carlin here in just a second we put a we put a pin in two thousand and six because as kelly was saying there was a period of time in the in george carlin's story arc where physically things began to turn against him and it was kind of right in between some important hbo specials and so what was happening around two thousand six well it just became apparent that his he was suffering from heart failure and he was he'd had a couple of episodes where he ended up in the hospital he he couldn't breathe and it was like the official diagnosis was heart failure and they would give him you know some diabetics and stuff and so it was this very difficult game that you have to do with heart failure around dia radic's and blood pressure and all this kind of stuff and he'd had because of the three heart attacks you know the muscle of his heart was damaged on some level and he has the exact same thing that dick cheney has was diagnosed with and in fact when he he he had a big episode and went to the hospital and they put in a differ bellator pacemaker kind of thing in his chest remember him saying to me like proudly with this like proud smirk on his face like you know hey this is the exact same device dick cheney's got in his you know chess got such a kick out of that but but yeah and it was like it was it was really terrifying because you know as a daughter and only child and my mom had already gone and she died in ninety seven and just to watch this happening this man who had been so vital and so full of energy and so sharp and with the heart failure you know there's just less oxygen getting to his brain and he was becoming more forgetful and it was taking them longer to memorize stuff.
