What Lurks Beneath: The Legend of the Loch Ness Monster
"The modern day fascination with old nasty started in nineteen thirty three when aldy mckay and her husband were driving along loch ness and we all know that lock is scottish for lake right so they were driving along the loc when less than a mile out in the water. Algae mckay reported seeing a tremendous upheaval on the lock which previously had been a calm as a proverbial mill pond. That was my scottish accent. Mckay said she saw what she thought looked like the body of some huge creature resembling awale rolling and diving churning the water into a bubbling foam. The creature was large enough that when it took its final dive under the water sent out huge waves. Mckay and her husband stayed on the road for half an hour waiting to see if they would spot whatever it was again. But in that time it never resurfaced the only paper that ran a story about the mckay. Strange encounter was the inverness. Corier other than that. No one seemed very interested less than three months later married. Couple mr and mrs spicer. We're driving south along loch mess. When they claim to see a huge prehistoric creature. Cross the road in front of them headed toward the lake according to an interview. The spicer's gave to rupert gould. Who wrote the first book about the loch ness monster. The creature had a long neck and a low thick body about four or five feet high. Mr spicer said he couldn't see legs or tail but he did see something flopping up and down which he later thought was a tail curled around toward the front of the animal. The couple said they couldn't tell if they're creature entered the water because their view was obstructed. And they couldn't hear anything over the sound of their engine. The author gould however claimed to have been watching the lake the same day. The spicer's say they witnessed this thing cross the road and he confirmed that the water was particularly choppy and noisy at roughly location. The spicer's claim they saw the animal. Gould went into the interview skeptical but based on their description and a drawing. Mr spicer made he came out. Short that the spicer's were telling the truth and had in fact seen the loch ness monster.

"Welcome memo lights to another round of the book views. My name is karna. I'm here to bring you the book reviews to help you. Transcend beyond your mere mortality. This is the end of the book month in today. I have for you my final book. It is the goads book of fish by richard flanagan. This book was published in two thousand and one so a bit more recently. And it's about four hundred fifty pages. In length it tells the tale of william buelow gold. Who was an english convict transported to. Tasmania also known as van demons. Land at the time and who becomes enamored with fishes. It's narrated by the aforementioned billy gold. Although the first chapter is a sort of discovery of this book of fishes and then a recreation of the book of fishes so sort of book within a book type tribe. We've seen this multiple times before. It starts off with billy gold in england and then making some decisions as being an artist and he has almost forced into the autistic type of world before. Doing some silly things gets transported into. Ben demons land. Tasmania and then more silly. Things occur and essentially sentenced to convict. Life says torches as imprisoning says beatings. All of these bad things happening to him. He tries to make his own life better through his autistic shoots and his entangled with some other characters in the book as such as the surgeon. Who is the one who gets them. Started on this book of fish this fascination of fishes and then towards the end of the novel he escapes. His confines. Goes on a journey gets recaptured. And then as almost put to death before being transformed into a fish of all things. Most of the action takes place on sarah's island which is an actual penal colony which is an actual jail where they would send convicts to do hard work and actually became a shipbuilding place as well. The island itself is tiny couple hundred meters in length and less that in with as well and the era it was set in the eighteen. Twenty s to the eighteen thirties. I believe so. This is when some technologies would just getting invented but it was still really berbar in sort of world a very brutal hosh
"They wanted the voice to be as realistic as possible." - Orchid Bertelsen Head of Digital at Nestle Talks Virtual Humans and Alexa Projects - Voicebot Podcast Ep 217 - burst 12
"We didn't know if we wanted to go full digital. He'll en route or an avatar leg. Almost twenty twenty version of the x are like on an animated character and think meantime when it comes to urging tag a lot of people have their own opinions on it a lot of union a lot of meetings almost every single meeting with leadership getting up to the point. They're like ra creepy. We want it to be creepy right. And when they see creepy rinsing uncanny valley without realizing which is when you're interacting with a being pay or avatar agent of. It's real or not and we can certainly talk about on the coffee test turing test or whatever we totally but for us we are able. Let's let's test it right leads to a very quick test and let's see if there is a difference between how consumers react to a pixar like animated character versus a digital humid and what we found through. That research was that there was actually very minimal. Difference on how consumers reacted to the face but the difference of were uncanny valley came through in the voice. They wanted the voice to be as realistic as possible. Which led list go into that because as fascinating too because with the voice. Yeah i think a lot of is about setting expectations. A lot of people thought that the this experience was going to be talking to zero or talking to your google home or whatever it is and we actually have two rows that you can t when it comes to the is each part of your voice tech stack and you go on daily. That's a devolve ways whether something google dialogue flow offers amazon. You know holly offers or microsoft or you can get a voice actor and you can have them free reward in different messages now. The challenge with voice actors is that now. You have to go back every time you want to update experience. You have to go back and breathe. Recording licensing is expensive talent fees. Things like that so we went our what is off the shelf. But what is the best version of the off the shelf that we can get it because it gives us more flexibility. Not because it's cheaper rate so when it interested in voice text act. There's speech to text the nlp engine and then text to speech so species taxed and all the engine. We used dialogue gould outflow and then really what was up in question. Was this text to speech. Portion of it i went through all the voices so we decided we ended up landing on. Aws polly neural time because the pacing was the most natural because for a while and this is still something. We're working on. Because i think facing perfect yet because she she's very deliberate and takes pauses in swimming pool. Lake wars on a vast new york. East coast hawker fingers. But you know so. So that's where we're at and that's something that we're saw
Hallie Gould, Associate Editorial Director for Byrdie, on Clean Beauty
"You know in your opinion when it comes to Like clean beauty. How can consumers tell the difference between what science and what's just marketing buzz. Yeah it's really difficult. I think what. I think is really wonderful about kind of this clean. Beauty boom is that it has made for much more educated consumer and i think that more than ever Consumers have felt really empowered to you know to research on their own to understand ingredients to question brands and claims. And that something that. I think that We at have been really inspired by. I think just generally our readers are that type of beauty consumer there. They dig a little bit deeper. And so it's made us dig a little at debrecen and try and understand better. What we're gonna say how we're gonna say it how language has nuance and how so much of the clean duty movement is wrapped up in marketing. And that's not to say that like it's not good like i think consumers brands and companies in all of that stuff like they all have good intentions. Everybody might smell a good product or use a good product or or use something. That's good for their skin for their bodies And for the planet. And so i think for us the way that we talk about it on the site kind of detail this little bit in our aeko. Beauty awards is we we We think about products Sort of in three categories so clean ingredients which again clean has no set definition so we published a list on the site that says these are the ingredients that if they're not in a product will call it clean and that's not to demonize the ingredients on that list because scientists constantly changing new studies are constantly coming up. I think people are really really quick to to have no no less than an hate ingredients because one thing said one thing and another person said another thing and so we really don't want to add the fear that comes along with these lists of problematic ingredients. Were saying this is a list of ingredients that if we don't if a product doesn't include them we will call it cleaned that's are set definition so if we're calling something clean. It doesn't have these
Upheaval: The Journey of Menachem Begin With Director Jonathan Gruber
"Jonathan gruber a warm. Welcome to johnny gould's jewish state. Hey johnny thanks for having. I've been looking forward to this interview for some time and indeed i've been waiting for a movie like this for what i'm unashamedly proud to say is my favorite israeli of the modern era. This was a man with a massive heart and for those of us who appear to understand him a little bit more a bit more gracious in their memory of him. I don't think he's quite as controversial or indeed as contradictory as people say interesting. I think he is pretty complex. The i i don't think he's one side or the other i think that's you know like most people they have different opinions on different Different topics he just happened to be in charge of lots of things and i found a tremendous amount about that. I never learned before. I own web Very young during the ad the peace accords egypt and understand his history in sort of the scope. Israel's history and even going back to world war two was was fascinating. Let's go back to belarus because he talked about his upbringing. His father was very learned. Torah scholar and his mom was the best mom in the world like older that jewish mothers. And that's kind of what chills me in a way jonathan because here we are in washington. Dc and in london living. What looked like a very similar life and then an absolute disaster prevailed for him sheild started jewish or hebrew. Education are very devoted parents. Our father was a very educated man. Mainly sage in judaism and mother was as any sun can save perhaps the best in the world it sounded to me that there was prevailing antisemitism. Grow out so he might have had a lovely family life. Things were not so great at school in the film talks about anti semites that would fight stick up for themselves so there certainly were issues than and sad to say. There are issues In in the uk in the united states anti semitism

Interview with Tuvia Tenenbom
"He's my absolute pleasure to welcome back to johnny gould's jewish state to via tenenbaum. Absolute pleasure to be with you again. You know you are a true free speech. Doyenne and for this particular podcast. I think it's the first thing verson ground rules as you can smoke. That's the first thing eight you're wanting to billion and the second thing is you truly opened my eyes to my own. I think tolerance of jew hate when we first met two years ago thinking because before that time you know. I've been conditioned i think in growing up in the uk in school where they're only three jewish kids to tolerate the what they call politely banter works erm you would call anti semitism and it did overstretched itself from time to time and i think that is a sort of shall we say looking for a better word but would have jimmy cued. I think from a lot of british people. And i think that's what you sean likes this book. Which is finally out in english. That's why it's called the tame taming of the ju. it's not just a take on shakespeare. It's the taming of the jewel. I mean giuseppe. Funding indicated biden. Own amazing to me edo deny or tolerate and sometimes joined together. Fox's would there accuse us we'd the hate us. That was shocking. I mean the fell. Shocking was citizen. This admit is imminent burden. I didn't expect it. I went to britain. Because i'm a tinto naomi's love english data. I said okay. My published opportunity mean sister. Go anywhere you want whatever you would like to go is i like to go to britain. I like to go. i like to see did out. I mean zane ought to do it better than anybody else. That's what i remember. And then the was black seed said. Okay i'll see you two belting stone which one stone i didn't expect anti-semitism and i didn't expect such a contaminating such a contagious. Such deepen. they semitism so deeply rooted. You know it on an island katelyn or in england which is the most important of course a bit of the uk but it was a frightening to sit and what is more fighting. Wants to see the basically. I'll kind of collaborating. Sometimes they had to fight jewish lead. Doesn't seem like law. Your people told me this and that your people told me i interviewed. People not told me are available. The life is a horrible thing so this is the common people and it took time. Tim's admitted but one that gate open has had them open and started talking. Honestly say to me you know. How many times have been told delta jew oh you know let us all kinds of dips and it's like amazing much so and little kits in manchester of hasidic. The auto talks kits in manchester and london will have had acts pelted them only storm so whatever it is i mean is a big addictiveness and we talked to jewish leaders saying even when the time used to say anything against wirelessly well owning two positions if to say one wowed against jimmy coleman only now's opt in the position you know as it became hewison you wayne saying that a one is easy allies. That are not going to be selected you know in a volume label for example district. Tina zero willing to say it was piping to see that one of the most disturbing rates. I think of british antisemitism and this might go around the world as well is. There is a sort of dog whistle so that someone can maintain that they're not anti semitic so someone who is an influence on me. Extreme left and concise something assiduously continuously hard left without. Referencing jews but then. His followers commend dog whistle a really serious anti semitic sort of betrayal of what they think themselves. I'm using an example of a very powerful voice. Which is john bishop. Who has who has three and a half million followers. He prostrate himself in front of ken loach on twitter. He said all this great interpreted it was as though he transferred the word. A jeremy corbyn for ken loach. I would kneel before him. And then if i couldn't anymore i prostrate myself in front of him which set off a huge torrent of jew hate and of course he a month ago on holocaust memorial day. Couldn't believe the terrible tragedies and then this is where the problems lie and that's an eye opener i think for british choosier surprising the anti-semites i mean disgust for britain and coastal are the places. You know that they took very nicely. Buddy dead jews in world war cho- you knows such nice people bubble and so bad and let's give some money to memorize them and and an make any fence you know maybe even endows of comments may be whatever it is making events you know in in a beautiful place to memorize their juice by the juice living was you know i mean it's like at all let's let you know what's album changes on the plane and of course the cord is a polish time. The code is is the stinian am am by itself. You know if you kill by the palestinians you know it doesn't mean that you don't like jews you know if you're critical officially doesn't mean that you're antisemites if you are cup only fizzle and if the only people who care about our justice palestinians because you killed by nobody else. Don't get about. Muslims in china while being tortured by million. Your don't care about syria. Don't care about libya you don't care about lebanon. You don't care about you.

New York City high school reopening plan coming next week
"Mayor De Blasio says he is aiming for public schools to reopen fully next fall. Wi sees Jessica Gould has more the era of hybrid learning could be over soon. Speaking on the Brian Lehrer show, the mayor said he envisions welcoming back all students in person in the fall. We will be fully open in September. There would be five day a week instruction for everyone. But de Blasio says some students may prefer learning virtually and the city plans to offer an all remote option as well.

Col. Richard Kemp: Educating Israel's public an important driver to their vaccine rollout
"As always it is my pleasure to welcome colonel. Richard kemp to johnny gould's jewish state. Welcome to us. Thank you very much joining us. A real pleasure to be back with you. Yes again marvelous program you winning of third cap today which is unprecedented today. We're talking about national security now. Of course you a member of cobra. The government's top level crisis management committee. Health really is as much issued national security as counter-terrorism and the first question is off the most successful nations in vaccinating their populations those which apply the values of defense against other security threats. I think there's a very good point. You make that good question you ask. And i think we. We can look at the responses of a number of countries in the world to corona virus in terms of control measures to try and reduce and also that that that what we know of that plans to vaccinate against it. And what one thing we have seen is that is the effectiveness of authoritarian states daily with this now of course not effectiveness does come at a price. They can simply come on people. Do whatever it is they want to do. They will do it by launch And they don't need to worry about what the media say worry about controlling leader worry about vision risen to any significant opposition so late they they simply can organize things in in a very authoritarian or away as they do everything else. In many cases that's been shown to be effective with you. Expect now cool the price you pay for that in your entire life is not what what you gain in a crisis like this but what it does do think is to strike the Old out approach you need to to fight To vaccinate people against it. I would say that the one country that we've seen striking would include even call it middle pop of making use of all of the mechanisms of crises. The very used to deal with while not being an authoritarian state. Not having the story yet being extremely effective is as i think most people recognize israel has led the world as far as the vaccination program the problem with actually starting and stopping down cetera. Didn't think it's been any worst take in any other country In terms of controlling of ours. But i think everyone acknowledges that the world the the reason for that and one of the reasons is the fact that this country is run by and people by individuals who have with virtually no exceptions have military experience and therefore they have an understanding of the need. I think all the kind of measures that military forces and the play schools in some circumstances apply to dealing with crises and on top of that the country has been at war versus be continuously to one another since nineteen forty eight and people understand the the the need for the expressed measures be taken the all hands to go to the pump when necessary now many israeli watching this will be smiling at what i'm saying because they probably all say tell you how chaotic the bureaucracy ountry nothing. We live in the same same as in our country. But what one reality is that. When when those people see a threat to themselves whether the threat from rockets the threat from terrorism threat from a an endless like this. I think they they do tend to have a very effective military almost military quite way of reforming
New York City Public School Seniors Say The Pandemic Is Shaking Up And Slowing Down The College Application Process
"Carlson. New York City public school seniors are now in their second semester, and that's historically a time to take a breath after completing college applications, But some students are still scrambling to submit essays and complete financial aid documents. W. My CI's Jessica Gould reports. That's only one of the ways the pandemic has shaken up the college process this year. Just a few days ago, Joshua Sr was sitting in front of his computer sending in his last college application to Howard University. I can't believe it a school y'all and This my final application. Wow. Yes, Josh goes to Brooklyn Tech, and he's a superstar. He's an a student with high test scores. He loves biology and Mandarin. He always planned to apply to college and the Corona virus didn't change that. But it did make it much harder. There were no campus visits or college fairs. He couldn't pop by his counselor's office to brainstorm. It's very much me in front of my computer like 12 A.m.. The night are in the early morning hours. This like China, think of things and there was no one to look over his shoulder while he filled out financial aid forms. I was so scared. I was gonna mess up Maybe one figure and You like label of fraud or something. But he says the biggest challenge has been juggling all his new responsibilities at home. Josh lives with his father and sisters in bed Stuy. His dad is a property manager who has been working around the clock since March. So Josh takes care of his 98 year old grandmother a week. My grandma every morning, I'll put her on the heart of party that's next to her bed also helps one of his sisters who has autism with remote learnings. I've had to kind of fill in as a teacher kind of helping her out with some of her homework, he says. For awhile, college applications just had to take a back seat to his other obligations. And experts say that's been a common theme this year. Angelique Figueroa is a counselor with a college bound initiative, a process that would have ended completely in December is now being pushed into January and February, she says. Part of the challenge has to do with applying remotely. She thinks the main reason is because students are under so much pressure, and some of their parents have lost their jobs. So now they have to work and they have to be able to provide And, um, I'm sorry I'm getting emotional, but I think that that is why it's taking them so long because they have to now. Not only be a senior Graduate from high school and be the first in their family. But now they have toe provide financially for their families. Like everything else with the pandemic. The impact on college applications depends on where you sit on the economic spectrum. With no s A T or a CT this year, applications over all appear to be up. But applications by students from low income families, students like Josh, who qualify for few waivers are down. Eric Waldo is with the common APP, which allows students to apply to hundreds of colleges at once, certainly a decrease in applications from first generation and low income students. And that's been probably the most troubling takeaway. He says. It's not surprising given how much families are struggling with finances and with loss. He says. Covert. 19 has also underscored how important it is to go to college. Having a college degree is actually was protected people and giving them the ability to stay home it all from the pandemic. It's been a life or death issue, so to be is that much more important that we you let this be a really a clarion call to all of us to do more to make sure students are applying to school and that they're actually showing up and going to college. That message isn't lost on Josh Sr. It's really just a question of where he'll be going next year. He's still waiting for responses, but he's already gotten a few, including this one from SUNY Binghamton accepted Yeah. First college acceptance ever he hopes many more of these are on the way. Thank you. Lord Jessica Gould w N.
Choosing To Foster To Adopt To Build a Family
"You got talked into having kids matt. How were you in the process of like. Did you ever consider surrogacy. Or were you always gonna do fostering to adopt or tell us about that both griffin i had spent a considerable amount of time in africa. I lived in west africa for two years in the peace corps and during that time which now is like twenty years back i was really struck by the fact that in in west africa specifically the idea of family is much more fluid than i think what we traditionally see his family hearing west africa. You know if you don't have a kid 'cause you can't have a kid for some reason but neighbor has six your neighbor will give you wanna. There's it's just kind of like the way the community works like f. You need kids for survival of kids are how you cook kids or how you clean. Kids are how you ensure your your old age and so it really struck me at all. We can't give way to my brother. It struck me that astray that like we had a really generally a very limited view of what family could be in this country and so when it come time to have kids i think for both griffin i. We were just both like well. We're we don't need to go through the hundreds of thousands of dollars process of surrogacy or the thirty thousand dollars process of even a private adoption foster. That's like spell like the right thing for us to do. Yes so you chose foster with the hope to adjust that past. I'm sure you did your research. And you knew that that was gonna come with possibly heartache. Along the way. And that's that's you have to have a really thick skin to take that path. No i mean. I think we knew that there was always a possibility of baby going back going home. I think that that is an easier kind of idea in theory and i think we both went into it. You know again. Having a peace corps volunteer griffin ran a nonprofit in africa. We are both like well. That's what we do you know. We're we're good we're doing. It's the right thing to do. And we'll learn to love the biological family and we want to do what's right for the kid when they hand you five dale baby in the hospital and you start hearing the story of how that baby got their got there. I don't know something kicked it. It became a lot harder to envision. The idea of giving a baby back now. But i think that most people certainly gay men don't think about is you don't think you have any paternal instincts and that was actually the shock for us all of a sudden when somebody hands you a baby and says don't kill it. Yeah your instincts animal. Don't kill it your animalistic instincts. Kick in the baby. Could make funny breath from across the room. You're like you know so do. You can't rule out the nature portion of the program and so i think that also made it a very different challenge in theory thought. Oh yeah we'll we'll give a baby back and then once you get the baby you're not trying to get the baby
The most important 4-letter word in this economy: jobs
"Begin with the most important four letter word in this economy it is of course j o b s jobs about which we got the january report this morning so seventeen days into a new administration thirty six days into a new year three hundred and thirty five ish days into the pandemic economy counting as we are from mid march last year. This is where things stand. Yes we added forty nine thousand jobs last month and yes. The unemployment rate is down to six point three percent but we are still nearly ten million jobs underwater from where we started and also yes. I know that was a lot of numbers. But as i believe we've mentioned a time or two and as marketplace's mitchell hartman is about to remind us numbers can tell you. Think you're too but wearing economy stance. There are a lot of numbers in monthly jobs. Report it's kind of dizzying. So i asked each of the economists. I shoot the jobs data over with today to pick just one indicator that shows where the economy is eleven months into the pandemic one number that slams you between the eyes twelve and a half million. That's kurt long. Chief economist at the national association of federally insured credit unions. And he's referring to the total number of jobs where in the whole since the pandemic hit in the jobs report. That's ten million however if we had not been going through what we've been going through the past. Nearly twelve months the economy would have kept growing and long reckons. It would have added another two and a half million jobs. Jobs needed to keep up with population growth for new high school and college. Grads immigrants new parents returning to work and a half million jobs. That's an enormous deficit of course and at the pace we're going is just not nearly fast enough to eat into that and now the number. That slams elise gould at the economic policy institute between the is three point. Nine million jobs down. That's how many jobs we are still missing in the hard hit and often poorly paid leisure and hospitality sector people who don't have an adequate safety net because their wages have been low for so long. Now let's talk about unemployment. officially that's ten million americans who don't have job and are actively looking but mark hamrick banchory says that doesn't count a lot of people who are not working because of cova danger or childcare needs. We have another thirteen million. Who are either out of the labor force and want to work or who are underemployed. Working part time. I would like to have full time work at him up. He pegs the total unemployed at about twenty three million. That's about one in seven. Americans who had a job before the pandemic started

Lived on Cemetery Street that was my address as a kid it. Oh, my God. It's the house is still there in Cemetery Street and St. Dumps into the town cemetery and that's where we would play his kids. We would go down there ride our bikes, play dark shadows, which was a TV show that was on when we were kids. You know we had creature features and that was always my and then you know I got older. Got Really into comedy and there were always very very separate. You know Mike Comedy career in the stuff that I liked. and. It wasn't until years later that I actually just started. Incorporating.

Know the score this is our new spinoff version of our old new old Simpson's podcast used to be called. Everything's coming up Simpson's no, it's called round springfield. We can remember to say it in tune and we're talking to people who've worked on the simpsons about everything. But the simpsons because they are all very talented individuals who have full lives outside of the best TV show. On the planet I'm excited about this one for so many reasons but I feel like out of a lot of our recent guys this guests today has not only written produced directed. You're gonNA correct me on that but acted in a shit ton of stuff that I wanNA know all the behind the scene stories for. Let's just bring a man. Welcome Dana Gould Hi Nice to see you I've only directed one thing. You can do this. What did you direct? I directed a short movie when I was at the simpsons that I just wanted to make called. Mates and it was with Paul, Greenberg and David Kessler and art and marine. And one I wrote it and I wanted to direct it, and then as I was directing it I realized I'm not good at this. I'd rather sit with the director and go you WanNa do that. Yeah. You have to communicate with the DP you have to know like how to swing shots you need to figure out how to interpret how many pages per day I'm like I just read the words man I just wanted to my jazz in the corner. That's exactly why nine times out of ten I, either work with Rob Cohen who was a Retin wrote flaming Moes Oh house brother Joel Cohen has been on the staff for a long time and and and Robin I have been friends since we were writers on the Ben. Stiller show. So we go way back usually something I just have rob directed and we can just kind of like you WanNa. Yes. Sure. We're Greg. NICOTERA directs a lot of stuff that I write. I'm writing something for Greg Right now and something I. I wrote it Rob Directed Went on the interweb today. Oh, cool. Can you talk about that a little bit? There's a fundraising act blue and. Stand up for America and it's to flip the Senate. To the Democratic Party I'm out. I understand. listed. We have one rule on this podcast and it's no politics. And you just cut to the laughs. That's understandable. This is a political political commercial. For cause to be named later, it involves a doctor's as standing in front of the shattered remains at the Statue of Liberty making a plea for people to donate to a specific political party and how to connect personally to this subject matter. It was it was actually somebody said. Jim Turner a very good friend of mine said Hey. We're doing this thing and we love to do a thing and as is normal for me I want what is the most expensive complicated way to do a one minute comedy video and it involved me doing two hours of planet of the apes makeup being talk through it on zoom by the makeup artists. Can't be with knee anymore right. Rubber, it was the foam rubber version of the ending up the airport movies. You're right. In the case there's Brown paint, take it out I. Bet you love that because it probably made you feel like a secret agent or something like the coordinates are here I've done it twice now remotely once for the Jimmy Kimmel show where appeared as doctors as on Zoom, and then now for this, and then in addition to doing all that we did it green screen and then Mike Upchurch mad at in took the footage of the end of the movie took Charlton Heston. Turned it into a loop matted and doctors as my girlfriend made Nova costume out of a dog blanket that we had in the house and. So That went up today for a thing I'll stand up for America, it's pretty easy to find an it's on all of my platforms as well. How that's great. I think I've seen the prosthetics that you did the make up for it on instagram and I remember like scrolling passed and just thinking like well, that's a still from the movie that I've seen already. So I was like okay. That's really good. Again in this is to Greg Nicotera. Because I'm friends with Greg who runs. The walking dead creepshow and all those things I have access to what I do is exactly what they did in the movie. The only thing that's different is the glue as better. Oh? Yeah. They used spirit gum and now they've developed sort of surgical adhesive that I use that is you know you can't. You can't pull it off you have. Two hours to put on an hour and a half to take. Oh, my God, I thought you meant the theoretical glue is better. The concept is better recycling. Wow.

It was awful because you know this is one hundred years ago. But the the invulnerability of being on stage was pierced, and you know I've been doing comedy for nine years by that time, and that's the that's when I started to get stage fright for the next two or three years, and that's when I would have stage fright. Yeah, because you never know, you feel like you're at the mercy of.

It's terrible feeling will can I ask you a question because this is neither the time nor. How how! Calumny I'll I'll put it down. I! I'm just curious when you transition or for while you're writing the simpsons. And all your experience was stand up and all of your the highs and lows of stand up and. Triumphant scary parts. How did that all come into play? A lot of writing on a TV show. When was the simpsons? Animated show. When did you write far? I was on from two thousand and two thousand eight seasons, Thirteen, whatever twenty one or something and What had happened. Yeah, I started off young and then I in the in in the nineties like the mid ninety. Four to two thousand. I was hot young. You know working. I'd have a pilot every year you know and I was a guest on every Sitcom like. Have you ever watch any sitcoms? Ninety s just a matter of time before it. Got Roseanne Seinfeld the nanny any. Eventually I always the same character. ABORS. Face smug. smug Dick. Yeah I was I was literally killing. I was fragile Frankie on Seinfeld Jerry's childhood friend that gave him a van that he didn't want and I got sad and went into Central Park in dug a hole in it in it. Was the famous Seinfeld's van son of Sam. Sounded like. And I get that. But? You know I had a lot of pilots. You Know Dana and They just kept adding exclamation point. Yeah, EXAC. Linwood boomer who? We I came up with the name as a joke, and he insisted that we keep it. No. This is a terrible title. and. He's like no, it's great. It was the aptly named Nice try. Bob Cat. Had Bob Cat special called? Don't watch this show. And we both yeah are we were wearing our self esteem? But but those titles seem like you're protecting yourself. Yeah, absolutely, it's not. It's. Totally. It's what Comedians tank auditions. Because they're not in control like they are on stage, so they go like no, no, no, you're not gonNA. Tell me I'm no good. I'll tell you I'm no. The latest Ray Schimmel rest in peace told his story about an addition where we walked in said. Where do you want me to fail from the director? The director said you just did Oh. Wow, and that was it. I think so yeah. I know having now been on the other side of that process, right? They want you to be the personal I. They they they WANNA be. They want you to eliminate any doubt from their mom and they want you to be the person because they're not. As a comedian especially. I'm not an actor I'm a comedian that learned how to add right I learned how to act long after I started professionally. Time I. Know they want you to be there? Not Judging you. They want you to be the person so they're done they. If you're the guy, I can go exactly. Yeah, but it's terrible. It's terrible written. auditioning is very little to do with acting. One is a one is an art and one is a craft. I forget where we're going with this. Why didn't I bring a cue cards? I needed bullet points. SCHIMMEL store. They told the Schimmel story about like you're talking about you're talking about you're talking about. A lot of yeah, at a lot of pilots, always working with another writer in Lynnwood and I came up with Nice. Try. Lynnwood then went on to create Malcolm in the middle. Jas Rich Stale. And I came up with Dana, and then chase went onto the simpsons for. and then I thought well I'd like to just try one and I'd like to try to write one myself. And it happened at a very interesting time as was in the, it was in the late nineties I was just gotten engaged. The comedy boom that I had surfed. Right was just abating. It was just Kinda. Going fallow right I wrote this pilot and get picked up to get made. I wrote an Jay Kogen another simpsons writer. came in. We shop. The pilot called world on a string. It was a great premise and it was. The. Basically Seinfeld in the World of pee wee's playhouse like it was a hyper reality, but a very conventional sitcoms and hyper real. Yeah. It was really good at very proud of it. It's up on by Patriot on page if you listen to. which I only put up because Jay Kogan was just on my show. But I really I found that I really. Writing. and I got a different sense. I'm telling you nothing you don't know. But I I had a different sense of satisfaction from it, and it is different. Yeah, I mean obviously because it's not just for you performance. And you can something that seems like hard like it's like all these pilots. I was the young comedian, so we're going to set you up with an adult. Whoever it is you're going to sell. Come and watch you and then you. They'll go away and do what an adult does.

You have these meetings with the and you have to see yeah. Yes tear and they were great. I mean I'm. Friends with all of these you know, it's still a scary kind of proposition to go into I. think yeah, it is, it will yeah, and back then it was just like because it was the height of Seinfeld and friends, and everybody loves Raymond Kings Queens.

It's awful, and it's so funny, so finally I did this is another great lesson business. I finally did Letterman in in Nineteen ninety-six. Done Conan okay, and so the the the the fear of that format had abated. And they really went through. My Act combed it out. Dave doesn't like third references that are liquid. He's don't talk about anything in the central time, zone. You know. They really combed it out and I did the show, and it was completely fine. It was so fine, right? It was a bee's nest of adequate.

Frank Smiley Frank Smile Impala Davis. Yes, they were going watch. And they trusted me, and and and they were you know I could, because the format was looser and as much. As I, go!

But not in the selfish sense of our own lives. What I mean is that we have a legitimate parochial interests in our own species. It's taken three and a half billion years for us to get here. We weren't ordained to be. We weren't predictable. If you'd play the history of life again, we'd never arise nonetheless, we have this very rich history. Our existence is tenuous and tentative, and if we blow ourselves up, that's it.

You might think Stephen Jay Gould and Niles eldredge were exhilerated, or may be frightened to take on conventional wisdom and the high priest himself Charles Darwin but now not really because I don't think when we first published on this nine, hundred seventy two, we ourselves understood the full range of implications, initially was a smallish idea for the edification. Intolerance was about evolutionary rate. We realized that implications with -ffected Darwin's views, but we had no sense of the. Breadth of Interpretations that could be raised within broader scale evolutionary theory. So, in that sense, it wasn't a Eureka moments that is. We didn't feel nor do I today for that matter that we? Fundamentally reformed evolutionary theory. If we had realized the full range of implications right at the beginning, we wouldn't have shrunk from them. Because that's what. She'll have saw that anyway. What they also didn't realize right at the beginning was how much turmoil they would spark but Stephen. Jay Gould never minded the hot seat. He told IRV dress, and then in some ways, all of science is criticism in addition to punctuated equilibrium gold challenged another sacred tenet of Darwinism though we always maintained, he was still essentially a Darwinist, instead of evolution, always moving species in the direction of refinement. Gould argued that some features of the species were just. Just accidental outcomes, chance and other words that one didn't sit well with many of his fellow evolutionary scientists, but they did support his activism against a rising creationist movement, which mentioned in a moment then again he created another uproar when he became an outspoken critic of colleagues in his own department for applying socio biology to humans, socio biologists studied the genetic basis of behavior, and that includes most prominently e Wilson another member of the Academy of chievements.
