Who am i where where who. What do i feel like right now. What was happening right now. Like to be in the moment as me. And then to add the circumstances on top of it of what the cena's about. But i would just show up just died into stuff and i. Sometimes i was a nervous wreck sometimes. It was appropriate.

How's it going today. i'm very good. Thank you matthew. thank you so much. Thank you so much for joining us. Today you're someone who have actually has been on my list of people interviewed for quite some time because you are pretty important part of ds. Nine and i've got a lot of questions about that show but we're gonna get there and a little bit first things first outside of performing in the show gotta ask what's your earliest memory of star trek. My earliest memory was in fort. Wayne indiana I think it was nineteen sixty six and we had the checking accounts for some reason. The tv was in the this is not how enormously lived but this time we had a gigantic house and we had a pool a pool table and in the pool table room. We had a tv. I just remember. I think the intro music i would have been five years old and i remember the intra music and i remember having to go to bed. I don't think i really started watching the original star trek until it was in reruns. And i would come home from school. And i religiously watched it and So one of my favorite ones is about the gorn. And and in i guess the guy who played the gorn is going to be in las vegas In in amman. And so i have to geek out on him. Are you going to be a star trek. Las vegas i am awesome. Yeah we we actually. Didn't bobby clarke's stop man. Who played the gordon. So yeah i'm glad you guys get the meet. Because he's awesome. You're gonna love him. How does he want to put a number out there. But he's up there in age but he's but anyway. I'm super excited still sharply attacked. He's got some great stories. Love them great kind of leads into my next question. You kind of started the par- partially answer that on. That's kind of things more background information about you. Uh-huh so where were you born. Who your parents. what do they do. And what are the little molly hagan. Wanna be when she grew up. I was born in minneapolis. But i grew up in fort wayne. Indiana and my father was an illustrator and my mom. raised seven children but she was a trained as a schoolteacher. So should Even when i was growing up she would in substitute at my school In my class much to my chagrin but yes she she at one point god. This is the worst job for her. So a seven children. She was kind of a hypochondriac and also worried that we're all gonna kill it ourselves by whatever she had a job at The hospital where she was the intake person for insurance. You'd have to ask people do have insurance and see all these things you know so she would come home and like well. Here's another thing you can do. I saw a man with an arrow through his ear. that barely. you know stuff like that. It was just you know the worst job. I'm on possibly could have and i wanted to be a ballerina. But we didn't have any money but we didn't have money for dance lessons so i probably it's really hard life. It's probably a great thing that i never had any desam but it's interesting because even at that young age you knew you wanted to be doing some kind of performance. So elliott ideally acting bug. Bite you yeah. So i mean the last of seven children all about getting as much attention as you possibly can get it sort of natural. It's like let's. What's the job that i could get the most attention all acting so Yeah i wanna be an actor early age. Did you do a lot of theater in school. Not really there wasn't really an opportunity to and then in. By the time. I was in high school. I was kicked out of the theater.

Government doesn't have to wait for the state so it prepared to open immediately. When the new law took effect era cagan is the ceo of native nations cannabis. We've had more patients than expected. I think it's been a huge success for not only the trial. But also the state of south dakota I'm glad that we're open. The tribe requires patients to have a valid doctor's recommendation. Hagan says the tribe also accepts licenses from other states that have medical marijuana programs. We've been seeing a wide variety Tribal members non tribal members age group.

"Cincinnati from our parish there that covered all of the overhead so basically the proceeds go right to dc so paid for yup yup. The costs are already tired. That's great this is the second album i haven't heard the first one. Are there any kind of notable distinctions between the the selections on those two albums so the first album is mainly covers. Just one one original and one very original cover of Arrangement of amazing grace of father at the time brother justin into this great arrangement taking from three or four into four four but then the a dog original was on. I think i heard that one. Yeah yeah wh- he writes. He writes tracks with really fun. Titles because what did you hear almond dog. You're not going to forget that you're like what yet you know and this album has given me a drink which we thought making that. The album covered album titled see especially baptists how they would react to catholic priests saying that both figure that we figured against that but so. This album has a lot more originals. As you mentioned father. Justin father thomas joseph being the main writers father. John taylor also wrote a one zero. Win with yeah. Yeah yeah with justin. And then we don't have the fiddle on this one that you'll notice that will hoping to get fiddle back for the third album so hopefully you don't hear miss scene but we fell to the whole album don't because i didn't hear the first album the third album even greater so okay and i think we'll the other things is tough to it originally to hear it with fresh ears but with the first album we recorded it in and bits and pieces so we just recorded every saturday for about like two months so we were just going to classes. As usual and then saturday morning we would take over room. Setup all the microphones record. And it's terr- dalla microphones and then go back and then which is a lot of work for a little bit recording whereas with this album we just took over one of our our places here in new york and we own on the rooms for two weeks and so we set up once and then just recorded and then tore down and we have a lot more time to jam together to play together to trial things together. So there's a hope. It comes through as a little bit more of a cohesion in this album of the players listening to each other playing together. Sort of melting our sound together. So it's a little bit more of authentication or brotherhood in the music. I hope i hope you can hear that. Yeah full this way comes i. I am tired and for from home. And i don't know how this goes. I only know how it's he seeing live a perfect nine only had and with all.

"Well yeah so you mentioned death obviously. That's a big topic in folk music in general in the blues in the american folk tradition. There's another thing that. I noticed in the lyrics which i got all the songs seemed to be written by either father thomas justified or father. Justin bolger yes. Yes and there's also a couple two or three traditional songs on there as well. What i noticed is a very especially from father. Thomas joseph flight a very apocalyptic specifically maybe the flannery. He definitely has the most to funk in his songs most southern grotesque in his sons of of all of them. And but the apocalyptic thing seemed appropriate. And i don't know that much about bluegrass. But there is there a precedent for that specifically or does it just really fit in with the focus on death and kind of the more existential aspects of folk music. I'm definitely no expert on on bluegrass and folk but especially even just from the first album. La those covers. We did Just like poor away faring or even exhausting all fly away. There is if you are asking yourself. What are we literally. What are what. What's the literal meaning of these lyrics. I think just across the board. There's a lot of these especially in the christian segment of these different types of music. Think there's death and hope in all of this across the board and the obviously there's other things like romance songs are like my wife's killer songs and those are obviously can't excluded for obvious reasons for making fryers so focused on the christian songs in bluegrass country folk. There's this tends to be a natural in heaven and that means singing about death as part of that. Hope in heaven that we will get to the other side. Yeah i also think it seems that. The american protestant tradition of a certain kind especially in the south has a lot more comfort with talking about the end times and the second coming and all that kind of stuff they. They like to talk about that stuff so at fits in even in with a catholic group. It kind of fits. Well because as catholics. Those are things that we seemingly shy away from a little bit. We don't wanna seem kooky. And unfortunately i think that a modern american catholicism sometimes identifies itself. Something i've been thinking about a lot lately actually almost in opposition to we don't wanna be look like we're like those those evangelical are whatever it is up at something. I've noticed as well so. I think it's good to be more comfortable talking about those things without going in for a flashy colors and tickling people's ears and all that stuff. Yeah i especially felt it this past november both with the covid nineteen but also november every year. The readings are about death apocalypse. Heaven hell judgment. And i either have to like really work hard and avoid it or just own it and just like own. The word of jesus christ be his preacher and to proclaim as right there in the gospels for even camp goes into the first week two weeks of advent two so in some ways it takes more to try to avoid it and just to take. Jesus has word and especially november catholics. It's it should be right there so that being said i also know when you're in your thirties you can. Death seems like an abstract thing so having reverence for it for people who know that a especially in a pandemic could be months away each temper no to not treat it flippantly but still To preach hope into that into that fear of death. I'm kind of interested in this. This whole idea of working craft as a religious brother or priests you know in the church. We have these sculptures by guy. What was his first name. Mcglynn mcglynn oh thomas. Cosmic thomas glen. Yeah the fatima statue and other things. I think he i want to say he did. The baptismal font if another yep and that's always something that's been. That's been intriguing to me this this combination. It seems in in a in a way it seems to fit even better with a brother than with a priest. Yes so how do you. You're obviously not like a sort of a full-time dominican musician or anything. But how do you see that personally. And in in the your knowledge of The wider tradition of people who devote themselves to a craft. Let's say other than teaching. Because obviously that's a very common thing but some kind of field like with father ignore for example as a scientist. But how do you see that those things intersecting excellent question i think for as musicians in some ways is more of a recreational. You could say hobby if you wanted but in the sense of like ooh. This is something we do to recuperate. Our spirit to to unwind sometimes after a long day. His house we about like take out the spoons and just go at it and just sort of end my day. By out any frustrations. I have through percussion as some ways. It's more of like a recreational things or have added on and then in the actual like okay. Let's produce something as brothers. i think we understand. This is marginal. It's not like the heart of the vocation and we don't want to take our identity as like on the drummer. I know. I'm a priest i and so for us. It's still has a sort of like extra. Just something fun that we like to do that. We know is not as important as absolving sins as a celebrating. The is preaching the gospel. We also see something. That's in harmony with that especially with preaching that. There's a kind of way that you preach through this sort of a very easy if you have someone who has walls up against the catholic faith whether fawn away catholic or a prostitute or an atheist giving the music as a very gentle first step so we sort of see it as a sense of preaching but also knowing not the height preaching either so tut to not take it too seriously. Just enjoy it. It's also quite frankly. It's a fundraiser. to so it's a way. Fundraising is sort of a modern term for being a mendicant and so it is a way of saying keeping close to that rely on the support of generous and faithful people and so it is a bit of a fundraiser to support especially this explicitly supports the formation.

Koz and everything else. But it's been really.

I cut out to a three man. What we sell tractor-trailers trailers the cadillac over. Feel that and So it was just a couple of less people hand in the cookie jar and stuff but was really nice. Is that your Your offering you know food people and and a good price match their taste. Really good so Gives you a little bit of warm and fuzzy and same with this tv. so i lost I lost my brother. Three or four years ago now To opioid so basically he had scoliosis and had a back curvature spine and they said. Look if you don't have the surgery you're going to be crippled the rest of life in a wheelchair whatever. Sergio ended up having the surgery. But it gets on oxycontin then. Within three years. I watched a killing. You basically just naked life. basically happening. He was on way too. How does and Being on on that just sitting around the house all the time and with pneumonia soda or ammonia on top of the complication with dog. She caught and it just went to sleep and never woke up. But you know the cd's romy was a you know an opportunity to give someone an alternative to management. And you know being able to sleep in different things like that that you know. They're not on something. That's so addictive in something that crawls in june and watched it like my brother's life and i just you know so for me that's the that's why the whole thing was like. I know that you know all the benefits from the that are in the plant you get and and it's just been amazing to me. I mean we've been so on on our e commerce site online for. I guess for months and just so many of us about how it's helping to change in people's quality of life and you just blows me away. I'm just so happy that it's just you know it's really helping people. And they're seeing results from it. So that's been been amazing to me whether we're making money or not if we're helping people really care about right now without business and it's a challenging business because there's still a lot of education with it and people think it's got the psychoactive albert which it doesn't at all but it just is one of those things where they're still like a little grey areas being my at all but the know that it's helping people and it's it's just you know that to me. Is everything you know. I that part of your interview when they were When you won the championship. That's why i wanted to. I wanted to put that in to the opening that we did and And i will tell you. I need to go to your concert because i. Cbd i'd i use it on a regular basis. It does help with arthritis and all kinds of other things. Heck i got cbd from my dogs. Y- twice a day every day for myself. I have a word wreck from these cars. Along the way i have a fusion and my spine monday when my raisin but until that happens. I can't be on any type of painkillers. And and then i can't have that surgery until years over so that to me when i hear louder sleep at night it gets me through. The day is not the cure. Everything means it's not so magical cure but but at the end of the day it definitely changes the pain level in my life So so i'm a. I'm a true believer in user myself. You know it's not just opened a business and pushing But it really is good man like you said the people's dogs and animals horses and you name it you know. There's we have named avenue system in our body that allows us to absorb thirds those Canaveral in the plant where bodies ready to use that in. You're right now but you know power available in your body which put an end to. This is pretty cool. I've had a huge learning airplay but it's was needed it just as positive reviews coming back. So that's another thing that That is ridiculously beneficial. People self that you are also in is weightlifting. you you do that obviously with social media. I'm sure you see all the comments about You look big. Matt is man. He's of this eighty dollars. Beef and Yeah i mean definitely everybody stand out because you know you put me brown absence. What's happening the you know. I'm hundred rebounds. Six one and you know so. I'm not a little guy but now maine's and You know but we do. Is we get away with funny car. Because overnight got dragster. I probably could get away with us. It over that area and so only launch it kind of plants atari bit harder. So i look at it like man the more the more traction control we got i wanted our. What's a what's your favorite workout day day. Whatever day in once say. what's a workout. Like with matt hagen. Yeah you know. I mean the right now. It looks pretty sack on. I mean i've been eating more than not working out as much but It's just a on. I gotta get back in july fruit team berry berry same But you know. I love working chest. I mean i'd have a pretty big chest and stuff like that. But i You know it's just like anything. You got your favorites and then probably should work everything else. But that because you're the where you too much but But to me just really total body kind of thing. I really like the You know the p ninety x dot com do a lot of that in. Just you know a basic bodybuilding lifting stuff. I have a lot of a lot of friends that are in the way living world and you know try to get some pointers from them and stuff like that to change it up. And that's my biggest problem. I think run into. Is i go in and do the same thing every time. And you have to make your body change and you have to adapt to your routines and make your body guests a little girl in the different things you know. One day you know like raisin stuff's over maybe maybe i can worry about getting bigger but i'm just i'm kinda like right now you know we're we're having so But now it's really anybody that's You know having doesn't have the time to work out or or something like that you really should make. I mean it. Just you feel so much better. Your mental you know for me. It helps my metals out of things. And i think that's truly what separates athlete or any sport you know and they. They're very talented and physically To be there right. So but what separates greatness and just an average athlete is their mental game. And that's really something. I think that i drove to work on his my mental game and business and lies in sports and drag race and all that stuff And not a lot of people know how to do that. I'd like to tell you the real quick and you should pick it up if you get a chance to so quick easy. But it's it's called on. Jim gary match and this guy had worked with pows athletes. I mean from golfing the basketball to baseball football. You name some big superstars you know. And and so I read this book. And i kept calling email on this deal and i was like man. I want to work with you. Because i worked with some sport psychologists and different things to help evaluate your your mental game and finally is what he made me back. She's like please stop email and he died for years ago. I was like all my gosh. I'm so sorry. But i was wanting to work with this guy so bad because his book is so good like just elevating your mental game to the next level and really i think that is what separating from you know from the an average great is your mental game being able to deal with pressure and business in life. You know what your how you how you do that. You know so if you get a chance picked up. Look with gray read. I mean it. It's helped me like you know when my first championship and learn to deal with pressure different things like that. You're not so Working on your mental game. I really think is more more positive than working on your physical game even speaking of of mind game. You go into the finals this year and.

"I would say probably her dog's purpose sides Lindsey who she keeps trying to get back. I mean Lindsey still presence in her life but she keeps trying to get Lindsey back closer to her throughout the whole series, but. Her Dog I. I would say like according to this episode in the way she reacts in the race. She kinda just like goes into a bit of a depressive state in changes, things about her morals, our values in everything. She puts into question because her dog dies I. Think is her dog was one of her best friends or something. There was like everything's. She wrote this dog and she may be questions, God and her face and everything that she thought. She trusted in God. Her new, or whatever like? How could you take this one thing from me? Who I loved so much like I, don't understand. Why are you doing this to me I? Honestly you know. I grew up kind of not like crazy religious group up in a church choir in new and went to church. Sunday or whatever and I had this questions a lot I think growing up like if if one of my pets died or even good grandma or grandparent or whatever I'll be like a week blaming God, you know and I think that's what really really does in this episode. She in her own way. Don't really see it, but I think she does. She blames God and she starts to accept like. Maybe these new people are Kim Kelly who she didn't really trust store. Thought was a dirt bag or someone that you know wasn't a good person. She made me start to trust now and is like maybe I was wrong all along, so it was obviously wrong about God didn't. You know this happened that. Why not? Why not try something new and different? And so she goes into this kind of crisis mode this episode and into a bit of a dive into the. Unknown world or the world that Lindsay is starting to get to know the in everything that she's been like reprimanding Lindsey about this whole season in whole yet series. She's now being like. Maybe you're right. Maybe I was wrong the whole time and maybe there they actually are good people. The freaks new hang out with these dirtbags have been calling this whole time you know, and they actually want to hang out with. You're excited, but all along. It's really because Kim feels guilty or whatever it's. It's a good and interesting episode for Millie. Just that rebelliousness that he could feel cut. Rebelling Against Authority Rebelling Against Your parents rebelling against everything that is controlled you thus far through childhood that you've ever. Do you see that pop up a general? Those teenage years and it's interesting to almost peed that metaphor of what you just said about her. Re exhibited. Devotion to religion. You could almost see that what she's doing might be kind of a form of angry. Rebellion is well towards the ultimate parental figure. If you will maybe it her bide to guide itself it. It baby her thick. You know I've followed you. I've devoted myself to you and your ways that I've followed your rules all this time and like look what happened to buy dog like now so I'm. That you know. be or the -sarily what you want to do what you've been traded. Bid What you've been. Asking me to do. All this time. Yeah I feel like a lot of maybe. Religious people go through these moments. That really questioned their face. It puts their there it. It tests their face. Faith I guess is what you'd say. And I feel like this is happening to. Me But I also feel like at the end of the episode. She obviously knows. We think she went back to. You. Know her old ways being a geek and and I honestly if you ask me I. Is Milly a freak or a Geek I would say neither. I don't really think she's a geek. I think she's just nilly. She's kind of in her. Own. World is thrown person for me at least when I was shooting it, and whatever even when people ask me when I was going to school and I was telling the most doing this show, it'd be like, so you were. Like no! freaking like now I. Don't think I'm either one and just I'm really just this this character. At the end of the episode, She Chevy doesn't drink the beer because she finds this out and. She doesn't really go down the dark, deep freak, pass or even like. Leave everything behind in general, but like I don't really know what what happens to her. Honestly I think she may come back or would I heard from white. Paul in Judd is like they may have explored me. Be more open, minded and experimenting a little bit more for the second season. which I thought would have been really interesting in cool because millie had her ways. She's very opinionated in what she knew in her. World shows like this is my world. This is this is the world. Everyone should be living in i. just don't feel like she had. A very much and I feel like. Could have gone to the world of exploration and actually been a little more open minded because I don't think that she was that closed. Minded I feel like there was a little bit of Malleability in in her character that she they just didn't really start to explore until like the very end I think that's interesting for her. You know it's interesting because there's definitely parallels between her at what leads you had gone through. You know for the very first episode because Lindsey excludes that. Really her whole pad for trying to explorer, being friends with different people doing different things because of the death of of of her grandfather, and that kind of sparks of the it her. That life is short. She doesn't necessarily need to follow what other people think she should to, but at the saved time. I feel like it's a little bit different between the two of that because. Lindsey I think billy would have been more sheltered so I think a lot of what she do about what was rated. What was wrong was what was told to her and talk to her as opposed to what she experienced so by it just hanging out with these people. She was seeing things at here things. As they were bb that he's never seated heard before, so yes I. Think I think maybe even though some of the things that she was doing. This episode out of spider or out of agar bb that subsided, but those experiences. Are going to be a dud like that changes his perspective forever. What has to believe that you have to believe like you said that that would lead? Open minded. Yeah I think. She grew a lot during this episode. Absolutely and I think it would. We would have seen maybe like some definitely some changes in her character if it would have continued on, but yeah I agree that this was a big. This is big, Super Millie and she went through some some changes developments. the other interesting thing you know we talked about before of these different groups of people at high school, fighting each other realizing that they're all kind of even unsteady ground so to speak. This is a big episode. I think for Kid Kelly as well. Who is essentially the ultimate bad girl the school. Are, but for her to connect with billy I mean you can't imagine. Two people were opposite from one. But there is this bond there of both.

"I get did know me or something and talk to them for like twenty or thirty minutes, and I was in there for a while, and then everything happened very quickly. I think it was the next day they're like. We want you to come in and meet with. Shut up a towel. And go to NBC and meet with him. And, so then I went into that what he didn't know. Is that earn cast Linda Carter leaney. Who Plays Lindsay Weir? Because she was there and I guess the whole point was maybe like to meet with Judd, but also to do somewhat of a chemistry read with with Lindsay and so yeah, we read together and. I feel like that was like an warning and. You a thing where everything was seemed like it was happening pretty fast or something that my mom was like well, they'll probably call you today. If you got it and so nothing happened that day, and so I went to school the next day. It was like really bombed is. Really wanted to in. Gotten so far. It felt like was just weird. And then my mopping-up in school mislaid Oh, so you got it. You're going to do this pilot entering a plane emily tonight. Yes, this is awesome. Answers very stoked. And then we went and did like the table. Re with everyone. That's where we've metal the cast for the first time and yeah. I mean I didn't know anybody. Nobody knew anybody else. In all very fresh and findings, they were actors who were in high school, playing high school characters, and but there were also actors playing high school characters who weren't in high school anymore, so it's like it was a nice mix, but no one was like too far off in age you know was. It was nice because you were. You could build like a huge friendship with these people, and at were your age in your and kind of throws things too so. That's a that's a great pool. It because you know, let's say that we talked about casting at just how important that could be! You know you think of shows like nine. Oh, two on. A were clearly. You know as much as we love that. Show it as much as we love those actors, clearly some of the world that the high school at the time that they were portraying coal students. But definitely edge aboard. Jd would feel it. I think for this show. You Bet your today of Alyssa Jones of the interesting because she's Cup on this show before I think it, maybe in reference to. The office. I could be rolled all that, but I know that that's Dave that has come up as. You know someone who's been Dole in cast metal, the casting people to important roles, but also to kind of be loyal of like. Getting to know different actors, the thinking about the leader for different roles that. Kind of establishing that reports you find that overall. The casting of the show was would've its greatest strict, because it sure seems like like a great job was done. Yeah, I mean. She won an emmy for the casting of which is awesome, but yeah. No I think you're right. I think I think she did cast on the office or was a part of that or something, but yet no, she's great. She's and she's continued to work with Judd and Paul and is just in their world a lot and is big in the comedy world I think and yes, she is really good i. think it just finding fresh and New People in bringing the same people back. She has a great i. I loved the episode. We're GONNA. Talk about this week because this is the billy episode more than any other and I love that the show gets a railroad to really have a focus on. Really just about every character that we beat you know whether it's mid character side character, even if they're hanging around for ten episodes twelve episodes eventually, we get to know everybody a little bit better and. This was finally time for you. Up until this point I'd say you're dead. Role billions made rural at the whole story, the evolution of Lizzie and her dirty. To. Experiment with big bad do things that are a little risky. Your your goal is to kind of try to talk her out of. It is to say what you do you do that. You can't hang out with the. They do bad things. That's not you and that's sort of where you've been all with the best intentions, but certainly very a different mindset at a different background, bilas recall definitely a religious overtones to everything that she did very a religious background. Background family, wise, such and a so. We didn't really get to know anything beyond that with you, but then we got to know your whole lot better here. It episode fourteen way. Was this a show episode that was shot towards the tail it or were they? You know I know. There were some issues with the secret of the episodes. Did it actually go till towards the end of the season? For you to. Actually, get to this point to to get the script for Billy I you know I think it. Why is one of my last episodes? I maybe did an episode or two after that but it was my last, really big. media, episodes I, not a few others. But this one was definitely like millie going through something different, and now it's Lindsay's turn to be there for Millie so definitely a turn of an episode of it of course again. This is one of those episodes that did actually see the light of day till the show resurfaced on ABC fatally, but definitely one of the better episodes of goal series. It's episode fourteen. It's called Dead Dogs and gym. Teachers straight to lapointe and we got a lot going on on this episode at I mean we really want to focus on your story? Light here a little bit, but what are the other big thing that happens here is Fred's who has been a big part of the show. All Love Bill. He finds out that his single mother is now dating the Gym Teacher Ed. You'd go build definitely very awkward. Kid has not had a good relationship with the gym, teacher or jibbed general, so there's a lot of edgar at frustration work through that issue until they finally come to at least a bit of a p status in the speak and the other big thing we're cetera out here is that Lindsey is Egli to go to a concert. Who Concert at this is something? That eventually involves you she's. As. We start out the show. She's driving to the car. She's driving around with busy, Phillips. and. They wrote over. A kid, of course, the character that I referred to with busy Phillips the hit something of the the street. They don't know what it is. Kid decides they should just. Leave a check it out. Dot Com surge. As It's the next day. Would we find out that you revealed to everyone that your dog had been killed in the road in the same place where they had this the road, so to speak, they instantly doe that killed your dog as this sets the stage for. Dirty really for billy. Yes, yes, Sir, absolutely! She kind of goes through A. Her, own little life crisis, as far as like.

"They have to deal with at every is outside or somewhere so That's kind of the common theme, but it's everyone comes struggling with that, but as you said, it's also really hilarious, your a big part of that, too. Because you're character of billy is just so devout at Righteous Ed represented his. All the way to the far end of the spectrum away you know probably bore so that anybody else of the entire show BBC of included lizzy parents you know you are. You're the age. Shoulder. I tried to. Before, we get into it. How did you come to to be a part of the show because this? Is Judd Apple? Really the first big thing that he did it his career that people really got to know this is before he broke even bigger on the big screen, but this was his first time kind of Brig. Seth Rogan working with people that would come to be to work with but the movies. What was the ski of this show the Buzz? was there any sort of a buzz surrounding it at the time that you were being considered for the role, and how did you? How did you lay on the part of Billy? I don't remember there being much like the buys a bout it like it was like it was like any other pilot I was trying to get made, and in also picked up into a series. You know it's insane. The amount of pilots that you know the networks approved to like you know be made, and then go through like all of these different processes of becoming a series like getting approved to be a serious like screenings. Like how good was that audience screening and there's like a hundred or so pilots that are made per network in maybe ten or less get picked up. It's crazy. The amount that actually gets made, so it was like any other a pilot. Win Just auditioned kind of like all the other cast members, and they did like a worldwide like audition for the different characters they saw non union and Union actors was kind of just like an open casting. Kalk the casting director Allison. Jones, she may have screamed some of the headshots in whatever they came through I. Don't really know her process, but my sister went out. Out To L. A. Before I'm from Texas from Houston. Texas and my sister's five and a half years younger than me, and she went out with my mom earlier than me to Los Angeles to for my sister to do acting and all that sort of stuff in my sister actually got cast in an a movie that Allison Jones casted, call deep impact and so. When I came out to like live with my mom sister and do the acting thing. This call came around and Allison Jones was cashing director. I think my mom, just like Sinton, like randomly sent in like my head shot in maybe like a note or something saying new casted her sister in deep impact. You know so you should see her. That may have worked I. Don't know I don't know how it all works, but I know that happens, and so anyway got an audition. I was non union. It was like one of my first auditions in Los Angeles. Did a short film for an AF filing short film beforehand in La, but other than that like I didn't really was on dishing I. Did I was doing acting class and stuff but nothing? I mean I I did a lot of like acting. In Houston, came from doing acting like musical theater in Bristol, but anyway, and so I just auditioned, and it was like batting for every one who was cast like they just went in audition. I think the Geek who not a series regular, but he's kind. kind of a side character named Harris his character's name is Harris. His real name is Stephen Lea Sheppard. He actually just went to the audition with a friend and he wasn't aired audition. He just like went in the corner, was like reading or something like the waiting room and they're like. Hey, you went audition. They like gave him like the size of Come on in or something, and so he auditioned, and like next thing no, he's playing, Harris, recurring role a really funny character on the show. So the audition process went like that for this series. It was very like of off the beaten path. I will tell you now. Audition process is insane especially for like they're being social media around right now and like instagram facebook, and all these sorts of things mostly like this series are being offered only or like completely unknown. X, amount of FACEBOOK, followers or instagram followers. You won't get seen if you don't have that. It's weird I don't understand it, but that's kind of the way things are going now. And back, then the same shows that were being cast I. Think at the time was like popular and Buffy was closed like maybe a couple of years before, or whatever a lot of those teams shows that you have to be like pretty good looking. To like get the part. This was very different audition process in casting. I think. In general and anyways, the I went and auditioned for Allison Jones and it was just her. It was just her I. Don't think she taped me or anything. It was it was her in the office, and and I sat across from her and I read the decides. Don't feel like. She looked at me very much during it, but anyway I left feeling like. that that didn't go so well. It was it I could have done better. I. Don't think she liked me like you know typical typical actor like feeling. You know like I feel like I feel like most most the time I leave an audition and honestly the ones that I lever. I'm like Oh man I. Feel like they're really well like I. Don't get them. In the ones that I'm. On. I'm like crying in bed like I just did terrible on like. Oh, he's got a callback or oh, you got it. You're on hold or whatever it may be, you know it's just like it's weird. So you just really head, it's a very bizarre thing. But, yeah, so anyway I went for the dishes. She didn't keep me was. It was interesting because like you know, there were quite a bit of people there and. I think it was two weeks later. I get a call back for it. You know so. She must have made some sort of notes, or whatever on her paper I'm not sure, but anyway so I get a call back for it and I go in and meet with the director and the writer, which is pulsing and Jake Kasdan, and then also Allison Jones. Who this time she had someone read with me, wasn't her? I think she read with me, but she had someone doing cameras, so there was some video taping and I. You know I. Did you did the scene with them a few times? And then we Kinda just talked. Just wanted to talk for.

"Hello everyone and welcome. Traffic. I I am him and you guys are here. Thank you so much for being here once again this week. We've got a a really interesting chat with you. Time out with a show that maybe not as well known or celebrated as some of the shows we've been talking about lately. Like friends and Seinfeld and so many of the others Hint Hint. CHECK OUT! The Archives Hint Hint Laugh. Track Pied Dot. Dot Com is the place to get all the old. The old current existing episodes to catch up with us but this week we're talking about a show that is just so good and those who've seen it pretty much universally agreed. The show is called freaks and Geeks, and you've heard the name you know the name Judd appetite. He's behind some of the biggest big screen comedies of our generation. But freaks and Geeks, maybe the first really notable thing that he did with a lot of the stars that he would go on to work with again and again. Guys like James Franco and Seth Rogan and the list goes on and on. It was a period piece taking place in nineteen, eighty and a slice of high school life, focusing on a brother and sister, one of whom. Is decidedly a geek and one of whom falls in with the group of miscreants known as the freak, so it's a really great, look a realistic and relatable. Look at how there's different groups, different types of people who populate your teenage formative years, and how in a lot of ways many of them are more similar than they are different, and it was one season of glory was canceled a pretty quickly, maybe before its time, but an amazing amazing show I'd never even watched it until this year, and I am so glad that I did I encourage all of you to do it and this week. We're talking to someone who is in the trenches working alongside all these names that were. Destined to become big big stars in years to come this week, we talked to Sarah Hagan. Who Played Millie the best friend Linda Cartolini, and she has a lot of great stories about how she became part of the show, and what it was like to portray this very unique character, this best friend, this moral compass, if will alongside her friend, who was falling in with bad crowd, so we're gonNA.

It's freaks at gigs time here on the left track. Really excited to talk to you and I'm really excited. Talk about freaks geeks because. There's a lot of people out there who have seen the show over the years. It who love it. But I also believe there's a lot of people like myself who are going to be late to the game. It's like. A comedy. Is You know one of those? Well kept secrets to a lot of people who just never were exposed to it, so let's just a break it down a little bit what the show is! It's essentially a centered on the high school years. It takes place the big eighty. I guess this you would say the centerpiece of the show are the family you know Lindsey brother sister. Both of them go to high school. so we're condescended the but their life for their parents. Lindsay is the older sister Ed. She is hide of at a crossroads in her life would be her because she is a very very smart academically successful girl, so the title Freaks Geeks for most of her life she was probably more in the Geek realm of Hegg with the the academic, so to speak which is at a crossroads where she is looking to cut us so roads at explore different horizons Ed. She starts hanging out with the quote unquote. I guess you'd call bad crowd. To as the FREAKS, you know, the the people hang out under the bleachers, instead of sit all the, and then of course, her brother saved is just kind of going for boy to teed so to speak his his yogurt, new high school, and he his to Fred's in more the category, so we kind of see two different sides to different very different sides of high school life, and how really similar or the? Cat! I mean they all have. They're all going through puberty and high school and family problems in. Just. Growing up in figuring out who they are together whether they are in the Geek or the freak or a cheerleader job whatever click there in. They're all kind of going through the same thing, and it's just a tyranny. Human Emotions I. think that's what really is like Austin about this show. It's not a cliche at all or like over the talk, it's very real and emotional and heartbreaking and. Funny, so all those things are really in just hits home with a lot of people. It's yeah there's like lots of different characters that you could relate to. It's very funny. It's very gauging and also there's just this great cast we get to be. The New People that Lindsay's hanging out with. We get two sub that hang out with. We get to you of course who played billy? Who is Lindsay's Best Fred really up until I? Guess I guess, Remember Badge Tool tabloid wise recently you know to this point where she kind of breaks away for hanging out with you, it order to you know, engage with with these new friends who are not be your approval certainly at the beginning. What a casts I made of course saw a big part of so many episodes so many games that we've come to really know and have risen to really a basic levels in their careers. James Franco's seth. Rogan is part of the cast Linda Cartoliti Jason Segel Jawed Fritz's Daily Busy Phillips all these days. You know they were all really just getting their first big breaks of this show. It's right. It's pretty cool to go back. Just Watch. Every will be grounded. You don't play these different characters as you alluded to. Before as exotic travel in their lives, we see that everyone has their unique challenges. Everyone has their unique problems ed baby. They come to realize over the course of the series. Would group is necessary Eddie better than the other there's. There's no higher ground. There's no caste system. Everyone's got issues.

Bryant Terry: Vegetable Kingdom
"Welcome to chewing the fat. The Yale sustainable food programs podcasts. At looks at people making change in a complex world of Food and agriculture. I'm your host Irwin. Lee for final episode from our cooking across the Black Diaspora series. We host Bryant Terry Chef in residence at the Museum of the African Diaspora in San Francisco. When Bryant was on campus in February? He spoke about recipes in the ways. They offer a reclamation resistance but he also shared about how in food justice work we can often forget. Recipes are about enjoyment to. That's why his newest cookbook. Vegetable Kingdom has song recommendations for what to listen to while you make each dish through his activism award-winning Cookbooks. And love for the history of black. Africa communities. Brian Wonderful guest to close our series. I'm also excited to say that. This episode was collaborative. Take an angle hosts the podcasts the table underground which features stories of food radical love and creative social justice she interviews Bryant in this episode at a time where physical distancing means. Were often staying indoors. Their conversation assured offer something special for all of us. It could be more excitement as you cook. A new dish and jam with friends or family or maybe. It's a feeling that you're connected to something larger to a people to a story that even in these messed up times where people across the food system and society at large are facing extreme pressures never before we can still find ways to come together. Hi Brian Hagan how are you? I'm good how you doing really well. Thanks for making time in your busy schedule for people who don't know you and your story. Can You tell folks? How did you get into eating a plant based Diet? How did you become Vegan? Well is interesting because you said how do I get into a plant based Diet and then you ask how to become Vegan? F- elect those two separate questions. And I don't know if it was necessarily a plant based I but I like to think that the Diet egg I grew up eating was Largely Vegetable base or you could say vegetable forward. It's because I spent Well it's because that was just something family valued I come from a family of farmers and my grandparents Migrated from the rule south to Memphis where I grew up and they brought with them. Those traditions of growing food and they're very knowledge and you know just the understanding that it's important that you be in charge of producing the food for yourself and your family and so you know that was something that my grandparents passed on most of their kids and they had gardens and spent a lot of time in my paternal grandfather's garden when I was growing up. And I call it a garden but it's more like urban farm because he literally used every bit of available space to grow food and he had chickens he at hogs and this is a neighborhood adjacent to downtown Memphis where you knows very productive and I That's what we ate from. You know I always say that the food that we was local as our backyard garden it was always in season. And we literally will go harvest food right before making it but in terms of me moving more towards a compassionate and healthful diet in in the way that we think about them kind of like labeling it as a Vegan diet that happened when I was in high school after I heard that The song beef by Boogie down productions and Karras when the MC of that group and it was really just this wakeup call for me. And I just had no idea about the violent way that are industrialized food. System can treat animals and the impact that can have you know obviously on the animals but also on human health and the environment and I just couldn't turn back so after hearing that Song. I really move towards More plant based Diet. And you know. I think it's important for me to always recognize. It wasn't a linear journey. It wasn't like a hurt that and I'd just stop eating meat. Never gone back. You know There were moments where I've eaten animal products again. I mean you know. Case in point how strict Vegan and then went to study abroad and France's and Undergrad and in the mid nineties it was hard to be a Vegan in France House yeah stain. What the host family. And they were feeding me what they ate. And so I I feel like important to note that because a lot of people have these purity tests and I certainly would fail any of those purity tests and I also think it's important for me to be transparent so that other people can just feel human and know that you don't have to be perfect and know that you know you do the best you can and sometimes you might do something differently and it's all about just waking up the next day and trying your best day right yeah totally Philly on that I know that history really informs your work a lot in particular the history of the Black Panther Party for self defense. And I'm wondering if you can explain a little bit about how both that history and other history really informs the way that you work in food. Yeah Wow always talk about the Black Panther Party for self defense being one of the major or learning about the work that they were doing in the sixties seventies Was really the major impetus for me deciding to do this. Work and particularly their survival programs. There were aimed at meeting. The basic needs of people living in communities and at a range of programs from you know free clinics to ambulance service to sickle cell. Anemia testing The programs that address this intersection of poverty malnutrition and institutional racism that grocery giveaways and Free Breakfast for Children Program where the ones that inspired me to start doing Food Systems working to become a quote unquote food justice activist But I think more than the programs especially after having conversations with many former black panthers. It's really the spirit of seeing the need in the community and then just jumping into action you know and I really understood that. We had to train a generation of young people who were equipped to make change their communities around food systems and lead the change in fact and I always talk about how you think about many of the most powerful social movements in the twentieth century and it was young people their energy. They're brilliant Fearlessness that helped these movements Pushed forward you know. We can look at the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa the Civil Rights movement in the American south. And you know if we imagine that food justice will be one of the most hopeful movements of the twenty first century. I feel like we need to make sure that we're quickly young people to be the ones who are taking the lead in the movement. What was it about food that made you really feel like that was the need that you wanted to take action on wall it was missing these parallels with where things were in the sixties and the panthers addressing you know. I think nutritional Apartheid and understanding that hunger and poverty were issues that had to be addressed and they start to breakfast. Well I mean they had the grocery giveaway because people are hungry. He wouldn't know where their next meal was gonNA come from and they started the free breakfast for children program because children were going to school hungry and they knew that they couldn't focus on what they're learning. They were having hunger pains and they didn't need any pure reviewed studies that prove the connection between like nutrition and educational and Behavioral. Outcomes is just like intuitive people need to. I mean like if I don't eat I feel grumpy and can't think straight and so imagine being a child having to go to school without being fed. And so when I I I. I tell this story about being on the subway Going from Brooklyn to Manhattan to go to campus. And you know teeing class and seeing these young people on the subway at seven o'clock in the morning eating candy bars and Red Hot Cheetos and drinking sodas and sugary juices and energy drinks and just realizing that these young people like that's the worst way to start their day and I know that that was just just that day you know this is this is probably the way they're eating often and so I jumped into action and started an organization called be healthy that used cooking as a way to empower them and give them skills that they could take another adult lives and help them feel more equipped to make real food but also as a way to help them be more politicized about the food issues that directly impact them their families.

A 50-year low in jobless claims is not just from fewer layoffs
"A brief discourse. As we begin today on jobs. We talk about a Milan because their jobs and people need them routing a couple of hundred thousand every month in this economy. The unemployment rate as we learned Friday is the lowest it's been in fifty years and tomorrow, we will get another labor market metric something called the first time jobless claims people signing up for unemployment benefits for the first time, which is by the way, also at historic lows over the past year. But as marketplace's Sabrina show reports there is something other than the tight labor market behind. Why those claims are this low one reason fewer people are filing for unemployment. These days is because it has gotten harder and harder to file for unemployment. These days actually difficult. You know, it's just like other state agencies on it's very hard to get through amber, go Hagan lives in South Carolina in two thousand thirteen the legislature. Are there passed a sweeping overhaul of unemployment benefits, reducing the number of weeks? People could be on employment and the amount they could receive up in South Carolina. The max is only three twenty six week, you know, and obviously my bills keep going go higgin hasn't actually even started to receive any benefits yet. She's locked in a battle with the state over whether she qualifies in the first place states have been doing things to make it harder to get benefits in the first place and they've been doing things to make it harder to keep benefits. Once you have them. Michelle evermore is senior researcher at the national employment law project. She says this trend started after the recession when some unemployment insurance funds were rundown. So there's basically two ways to deal with a depleted unemployment insurance fund. One is just to fund the fund, but the second thing is to cut benefits some states have reduced. The number of unemployment offices in favor of online portals that in some cases, have proven dysfunctional nine states have reduced the length of time people can receive benefits to less than the standard twenty six weeks. Some like North Carolina went as low as. Just twelve weeks. South Carolina went to twenty. We were very happy with the change in the length of time. Ben homebuyer, direct South Carolina, which represents small businesses that pay taxes to support the unemployment insurance fund, the NFL be lobby to limit unemployment insurance in that state and Homer says those taxes have come down as a result. I mean, you could be on unemployment for years, and you know, in a lot of cases, we were concerned that there was was less incentive to come off of unemployment. How many weeks unemployment is enough is debatable data show that in today's economy people are unemployed for longer than in decades past just Rothstein is a professor of public policy and economics at UC Berkeley, the approach that we've taken over the last seventy years is that twenty six weeks is about the right amount of time in non recessionary times longer. When the economy goes south the results of tightening unemployment benefits, making them less accessible show up in the national numbers back in two thousand seven thirty five. Percent of unemployed workers were getting benefits today. Only. Twenty seven percent are fewer unemployed workers are even applying for unemployment to begin with these changes mean that those looking often don't get as much help as they used to sue Berkowitz directs the South Carolina Appleseed legal Justice center at talk with people who will call and say, I was turned down. I don't have any savings. I'm going to lose my home in a where can I turn? Where can I go so McConnell argue this will pose a bigger problem in the future? When benefits are needed even more Michelle evermore with the national employment law project. What's going to happen is we're gonna wait until there's a recession, but it will be two eight it's possible that the federal government would step in were there. Another national recession offer federal benefits pressure states to expand. There's Vincent Reinhart is chief economist at Mellon. I don't particularly worried right now that states are cutting back asymmetrically because when the time comes they'll get the nudge to put them back in place then again. Will they Jesse Rothstein a UC Berkeley again in practice? Those take awhile several months after after it's really needed. And that was in times when the federal government was better able to pass legislation than it is right now putting back unemployment benefits in a strong economy has saved some states money, but when a new recession hits, that's where some people start to be afraid.
