Yeah. There's there's very. Safe. Dunkin donuts. that. Only lets in a couple of people at a time and I'm Kansas donuts. No I am not a Pumpkins I I'm just ice coffee especially during the summer just give me some iced coffee injected into my veins Usually we'll. We'll make coffee at home but you know sometimes put that mask on and you know hand sandy ready and go to get an iced coffee and Sani Well, you know Halloween you know with all pumpkin spice everywhere Halloween and Thanksgiving can't be too far behind by the way what's Halloween GonNa look like I mean Masks. Great. But and we are outside when we retreat, you know if you have kids trick or treating. So I guess outside masks to bonus things. But then you have to actually interact with people and they give you candy not a really good look so. Halloween will be interesting this year and what about Thanksgiving? Like how are you going to have the family over for meals when they've they're not gonNA come and like that's not gonNA. Happen. I. I literally have not thought I'm sorry to interrupt you. I have not thought about. The basically the lack of a macy's Thanksgiving parade until just this moment and oh I and I'm really sad about. By by the way, I've I've actually had because I a couple of weeks ago I was. I you know how you you fall into. Google. Whole rabbit hole and I started to search I'm like well is the macy's parade going to happen and their official website had no information about this year show. and. So I started searching for information about lake marching bands will the marching bands be there and then I found something that basically said. None of the marching bands are going to be there all know. So marching bands are gone and there was some alleged rumor about how it's just GonNa be like a modified parade with like maybe clowns and some small balloons, clouds and small balloon that sends dreadful. But it's like there's mean clearly the parade if it exists watch be incredibly modified and what about the dog show the national dog show that comes on after Thanksgiving Day parade how's that going to happen? Yeah, that's tough so Anyone that I will I I assume hopefully knock on wood that there will be NFL. Games going on because the NFL as of now is is still planning to go forth with season without any fans or with limited fans I should say But yeah. Somebody the dog show. Yeah. At football in the middle of like flu season shirt. That's just. Listen, Keith we still have some big releases. That's that's the one silver lining. I should say is that there are still some big releases going on some big albums. Obviously there will be big single releases with I feel like we've had a huge Lee. Eventful summer in terms of single and album releases, which has been pretty cool that they're still tough stuff for us to talk about throughout summer and there will be things. To talk about this fall. So let's start with some of the big albums that we know have a release date. In are officially coming as far as we know, and then we'll kind of get into the question marks the albums that are rumored to becoming there have been in the works for years and might materialize this fall you never know. We are now past the grammy eligibility period. So whatever we're talking about is not going to be up for a twenty twenty one grammy award but maybe twenty, twenty two which feels forever away but you never know yeah. Sochi, let's talk about. Big Sean. Detroit to which I have heard part of I think is really great. Coming out September fourth. And I. It's interesting because big sean is someone that has a huge fan base obviously. Has Never had the kind of critically acclaimed album, but I think that. We'll see how this album performs, but I know people are very excited about that one, and then later in September, we have a couple of albums Max of sweet but psycho fame and he been coming on September eighteenth. Any thought any thoughts on on any of those big Sean of Amax Keith urban just in terms of they I see char perspective I I, feel like they're sort of the prelude to the storm. Just. The early indications of might becoming I. Think it's been a long time coming for Max. So it's great to see that she's dropping album after sweet butts psycho and the successive kings and Queens. I'm not particularly a huge like hip hop aficionados Jason is so I take his word strongly when he suggests that Big Sean is one to watch. In terms of this album, it's definitely a kind of high-profile hip hop album. Yeah. So just very quickly. So is something else coming in September two chains so help me God, which is am a big chains guy. So I have high hopes for that album.

Former "Ellen" Producer Speaks Out Against Show's Culture
"Talk talk show show host, host, Ellen Ellen did did generous, generous, continues continues to to come come under under fire fire for for what what many who worked for her called the show's toxic work environment. Staff have claimed she's not the happy go lucky person we see on TV and is, in fact anything but kind to employees, telling them not to look at her or talk to her ever. Hey, CBS's Dan Mitchinson spoke Mohr about it with Hedda Muscat. She's the show's first producer and Grammy Award winner. Why speak out now? Because I was asked. I did not seek this attention at all. I've laid low for 16 years and then the entertainment community when people have asked me on all the other shows I've worked on after that from America's got talent. I launched that. Two other shows, including Hot bench with Judge Judy People would ask me my bought, my new bosses would ask me. So what was it really like working with Alan and I always said fine. Fine because I didn't want to put that by about there. I had moved on already. But the media approached me about two weeks ago, Buzz feed, and they disclosed to me that there were over 50 people that they spoke to at that point, and nobody wanted to come forward with their name. And I said, Why And they said, because people are afraid I said, Well, I'm not afraid anymore. If you want to use my name, go for it. I mean, you were the first tires on the show when it started. What was the environment like back then? He was saying the exact same Ellen is the cold person. But here's what you have to understand. I didn't I'm not complaining because she was cold. I'm complaining because that attitude that she exhibited in the office which I say cold, indifferent, aloof, very disinterested in what I was doing. I was human interest producer. So the show was really relying heavily on all these human interest segments. She had no interest to have an understanding of the story that I was pitching her the story that we got approved. Finally, you know with the other MPs. Everybody had to approve. The story should know interest when I was trying to brief her on what the guest you know was going to be doing and my many of my segment's fell flat. Because of her disinterest in them. If you weren't an a list celebrity, she wasn't really couldn't care less, But once it affect your work, the quality of your work and your segments, then that becomes very toxic, and it's very difficult to deal with. I'm very strong person. You know a lot of the newspapers I noticed in the UK were saying, Oh, she's just soft. We're not soft. People were very aggressive in the way we book Our guests were looking for that news breaking, you know, first right exclusive story we can handle. Helen's coldness, but what we can't handle is when it starts affecting the quality of our work. As I understand it. Ah lot of employees. Maybe most employees had to sign a non disclosure, Did you Yes. And are you breaking it by talking to us? I don't know. I don't care if I'm in my sixties now, you know, asked me 10 years ago. You had probably care. I don't care anymore. You know, the media asked me. You know what? I go public with my name because everybody was afraid. And I was Sure why not? And I'm doing this for a bigger reason to have a daughter, who also is making her way in the work environment. She's only in her twenties, and I just just like the meat to movement. Change the culture. Of how women are treated in the workplace. Hopefully, black lives matter. Huge. Hopefully that will continue continue making amazing changes in our society. I'm hoping that this is you know the whole toxic work culture changes, too, because we can't do our jobs effectively when you work for someone who allows her co M P. Ed Glavin to go off on people in a rage she witnessed. I was in the room when she went when Ed would go off in a rage with veins bulging and she would laugh and say. Oh, every production needs its dog. But we knew that we were going to be at the receiving end of that screaming rant at one point so we can handle it. It's not like Oh, gosh, poor us. It's just that her mantra of be kind is so fake, and I think that's what disgusts me so much don't do that. How it's turned to them have to go. Be kind. We know who he is. I work for Simon Cowell's And he was amazing to work with very tough, very abrupt but to the point but professional and it made me a better producer. There's nothing that I can take away from the Ellen Show that made me a better producer. Okay, we only have. Unfortunately, about 30 seconds left to go. I want to ask you these claims of sexual harassment. Was this going on back then, when you started with the show I don't know. I wouldn't know that I was an older woman there. I would not know what went on behind closed doors. But if my colleagues they're saying it, I believe it. And now that this has all come out in the open. Do you think this is going to be the end of the show? I would like to see it be the end of the show. Yes. And that was had a Muscat, former producer with E. Ellen de generous show that wasn't exclusive with K CBS anchor Dan

How Big Will the Hamilton Bump Be?
"You WanNa Talk Hamilton Yeah don't don't don't throw away your shot. Jason's is your. This is your chance. That's nice, so so Hamilton. Was filmed with nearly all of the original Broadway cast of the show back in June, two thousand sixteen. Before they started to depart the show including lin-manuel Miranda's who wrote the book music and lyrics. It was supposed to be a theatrical release last year, but instead of comes to Disney. Last last year is not supposed to be next year. In Twenty, twenty, one. Instead it arrives on Disney, plus on July third just in time for Independence Day hitting its ascension. Sorry bidding. It's very fitting. It is founding fathers and all that. So I I watched it with my wife yesterday. It's essentially the live stage production as you would see in the theater but you obviously the cameras getting close. You can kind of see the facial expressions, and obviously for Disney plus subscribers. It is free as as opposed to the hundreds and hundreds of dollars. You'd have to see Hamilton it's. It's free in the sense. You have to pay for a subscription to Disney plus though. That's true. You have to pay a nominal fee to actually become a member to Disney plus. That's true, so it's only a couple of bucks. Guess. Maybe I don't know. What you're talking about he. Now get mine. Free I don't have that. Disney hookup. Anyway anyway. So the other thing is obviously. There's no actual stage productions of Hamilton happening right now because of the pandemic, so it doubles as a way to get Hamilton to the masses. But also as a way to you know to get Broadway to the masses to get a theatrical production to the masses a at a time when there's no live theater happening right now. So we, we wash at you to keep. You saw Hamilton live right? Yeah, I did I. I saw it, so I saw the opening night of the. La Production. So I never saw the original Broadway cast much to my dismay. And going into the L. A. Show any actually if you google. Google Los Angeles Hamilton Premier. At Billboard Dot Com I wrote a story about it and that night like. Just a couple rows over like Lin Manuel. Miranda was there in. Like. A lot of the sort of original creative forces were there in the audience, and they went up on stage after the cast took their vows and spoke to the audience I went into kind of thinking like Oh my God is GonNa live up to the hype. because. So much has been said about the original. Broadway cast in how amazing they all were, and it's just a revelation and your own. My God in Lake. You kind of felt like you're watching like. They were like they became celebrities. There was no podcast became celebrities and know original broadcast doesn't always stay with a show. Obviously, you usually leave after year so I thought. Are these people really going to be as good as a Ritz broadcast? Even though all had seen at that point was like the Grammy Awards performance and the Tony Awards, performance, which had the original cast I'm like these people are amazing so I see it now like these people are amazing, too. So I just saw like by Gosh it has it. Has I think it has obviously? It's a lot of just like the music. Music and the lyrics, and the story in the staging enemy just found amazing talent to sing and dance and act, and so anyone's who've been anyone. It's been fortunate enough to see the show at all has seen an amazing experience, but there have been tons and tons of people that never got to see the original Broadway cast, which is why it's so great that Disney plus did this and you are actually you know. People were actually able to see the Broadway cast broadcast. Yeah, I think it works in both in both instances for for people who have either never seen Hamilton or people who have seen other iterations of Hamilton so for for me I'd never seen the play all I've never seen a production of the play and I you know you you think about whether it. If I get to see it in in on Disney plus if I'm GonNa, WanNa see it live, but it's almost like buying an album and first of all. I thought it was tremendous. It really does kind of live up to the hype, and it's just such an impressive story but it's almost like buying an album watching it at home versus going to a concert where it's you know. Know seeing it live I can only imagine it being so enveloping that even after seeing it on Disney plus I kinda WanNa see live now so i. mean I I think that it works in in that regard, and then in the other regard. Might my parents actually saw Hamilton on Broadway in February this past February for my dad's birthday. They went, and you know they now they get to see obviously. The most of the original cast had gone, but now they get to watch the Disney plus version so so they can see the original cast performance, and see the close up speaking, which is not nothing because you know they had You know I think they have like knows we see yeah. And host, but really far yeah. look at that, but you know you. You're even the even the cheapest seats to see Hamilton and Broadway hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of dollars And now they get to see you know lin-manuel, unless the ONUM and V digs all all of them. Being Jonathan. Yeah it's friend of the PIE. Ask Jonathan Groff friend of the podcast John Draft. Who was who was hilarious. He spits a lot anyway.

That is what her first guitar cost. And as she clearly remembered from that point on her poor mother never got any peace and quiet. Every spare moment was filled with music. Which sounds Nice. But you've got to remember. Elizabeth was learning by teaching herself. Luckily she was a quick study. When you spend that much time working hard on something you are bound to improve. That's how it works. She put in the time and before long. Elizabeth was not just playing guitar but playing incredibly well in her own unique finger style and she was also writing songs.
