But it became very clear as i was the space better that there was never going to be a drug developed for one person by a company that wasn't wasn't mine and so the challenge with that is now. How do we actually go do that. And so it began by reaching out to as many individuals as possible really understanding. Who were the who are all the players in the ecosystem and also using the people that that sort of had become part of my network naturally over time. tarries doctor. Dr brenda wong. Mass memorial a few researchers. I become really close with in in navigating the space and so we started out the question with if we're gonna do this when we start and so that that became understanding the nuances of the individual mutation. We did that. Through muscle biopsy and helped to enable like holding them sequencing and and western lobbying to really quantify what's going on genetic mark where level that would then inform us. Of what technology could we use to apply to the situation. That may work and so really tackling the situation from. What's the problem we're to solve. And how do we solve it versus. Oh here's a technology problem. Cancel so really taking it from step one of like. Okay this is. What is the difference in the gene. That's leading the protein not to work as it normally does and saying okay. How can we now that we've identified. What that changes and terry. How can we give him or design a medication to him specifically so with that. If another person had the same network changes terry would they be eligible to take this medication. That's you know. Hopefully it sounds like it's development. Would they be able to theoretically take that same one if they have the same genetic changes terry. Yeah in theory..

I wasn't I'd have been the israel so you know and you guys have stucco. We call it pebble. Gosh well so what would i say. I expect a law of. I need a low of tactic. Maybe that maybe. I'm too too much physical contact. Maybe is this goes back to make sense like one of those guys. Just the law sex. You know what i'm saying. I need a. It's i've had that a few times okay. Okay what about everything about this. Production was accelerated. Right like as. I understand it It came together really quickly. Ten days of rehearsal. Ten days of shooting does not accelerate everything about its must kind of spoil. You guys have both been on much larger productions where. There's a lot of downtime. It must be so fantastically rewarding to just like every waking moment. Be thinking about this interest in it. Yeah we were just saying. It has spoiled us oxidative. The for the first meeting. I about after january just made this film on. I think we should make it like that seriously. I think we should rehearse it for for two weeks. And then i think we should film in two weeks. I don't see why we can't do that. And i always say can be the case for everything but there's some hangs the case for. I've done two movies in the last year and a half the remade in two weeks. Basically one of them was a completely improvised film. What i have a clue what was coming next and then the next one was this might make both of them and to come on. Everybody should be with us. He is the same amount of money please. That's the only caveat gas in two weeks. I will do more acting than those two weeks than you could ever entity four months where your conventional filmon over the years. Are you good with the downtime. I mean obviously humidity james. You've done the x-men films Enormous there's just inherently it takes a lot. There's a lotta downtime. Have you always been good at keeping the focus and filling the time it looks. I mean look. I remember coming off a best and go into montreal to shoot x. Men in the past and i was on stage working issues week loving it. Absolutely love literally sweating blood. Every second i was at work and then you go there and that was a i do some good acting not movie but it was so thank. I just remember like liquor. Who is anybody stressed. This is an absolute dawdle is non end the lovin it just love and life and being very aware that kind of work you know it was dependent hussein home looking after kids was was working hours going to have i and in montreal onset and by the same time you know as much as that was an antidote to the hard work you were doing on stage after a while you do get distracted your like. Oh my god hours between and and also what you get you might spend sixty hours trying to capture eight lines worth dialogue really. Is that any of those lines that maybe they were. None of those lanes really gets to the heart of Really sometimes you're not really doing much when even get your bet in so doing something like this. Which was about. I mean really as much as few people keep saying the word who actually felt more natural and realistic. And even though you're talking to the audience on we just talking to your mate. Aren't you just talk audience when you talk jimmy Aren't you just don't to the audience when you talk to your moment the phone. And that's what this feels like. This kind of token zillions shows like for me. I yeah i mean. I i have my audience. Oh the for suggested questions. One of the questions. That came up from from jen and kate and want to know how was it acting directly to camera and i might my fault would be like. Who are you imagining on the other end of the that camera or used to be someone specifically what well initially when we were rehearsing and there was no camera just stephen daltry cranston and ran into place like you know and so we were talking to him and we did discuss it a lot. You know what i'm asking. Dentists says like who because initially it was Gonna be A play and then the then you know the cia dying. I mean So so would you would have been talking to an audience so we have in the end. It was just like stephen wasn't invited was a guest in in our home. You know he was someone who didn't necessarily want to hear about our relationship but we were gonna tell him we each wanted to you know. Get him onside. Kindly let you do in marriage therapy or kinda like want the cancel their two young. You're right. I mean you can hear me from. I mean. Obviously you know i. If i'm really honest. I can't remember exactly what we landed on. All i know. is that For me it was a really new thing to do. And that the big thing i had to get over was not looking away. You know like. I had to sit a hold. I contact which. I find kind of hard. Because i'm really shifty and So see just kept saying you know like even when i do more. I felt like i was really really connecting with him. It'd be the first thing you'd say to me when when you know when we When we cut like keep looking away a learn it this might sound like a absurd talk to professional actors about. But i'm always like i just don't have a great number for memorizing stuff and in my job i sometimes have to do. Small amounts of dialogue and i can barely handle that but the sheer amount. That you guys are handling. Certainly you've done theater obviously have to know how to do this but like does this come naturally again. This is a ten day. Shoot that about a week and a half rehearsal do absorb that stuff quickly like are you both like just so in the zone that there's not even a question of like forgetting line or if you do you just roll with it. Or what do we definitely forgot. Lines the point where 'cause we begin thirteen minutes fourteen minute takes and there was a point where we can't mess out. We kept messing our kept messed up. We kept stopping if we messed up which they can give permission to stop when we messed up so the next time we did it with invariably make a mistake and off. You're never going to get through this. Remember weeks or call each other. Muir light right wherever heim Doesn't matter whether you shut your pints in the middle of a take you push through a main. Maybe maybe i shot myself. Because i up you just and then honestly the minute we had that conversation with each other. There were less mistakes and we did. Just get it done and yeah of course still mistakes in the things that you weren't entirely happy with it so we're going to be a choice when it's something that is one. Take quick none but but it was really interesting. Do look i love talking to the audience. And i love having lost. Do she said f it well written and thing. I haven't worked that hard since it was at school and a husband light. Learn shit off by heart. You know i that. My favorite review at reviews was the talked about how many lines to learn. And when my dad called me to say well done he jesus. I don't know how you remember all that dialogue sharon Yes someone knows. It was like ninety hard like as hard as the acting bit. I mean shit. Let's learn in very little high. So is there. I totally have matters for it. Is there a line over the years that has haunted you. I mean again not to keep going back to like excellent stuff but techno-babble stuff that particularly in the stuff. You've done over the years james i think of for you shine. You've done so much work. Are there lines that just like to this day are stuck in your head in your mares well i series cold the increasingly poor decisions of todd margaret.

"Know a bit about it in ohio done a little research on nola. Some of the suffering. That's gone on. Make it in to witness that such privilege and to see an actor like jack this crime and subtlety and and the broads of his work is just meaningful meaningful to me and i think by the way i played on projector aunts scope is or powerful involved here right at it. Is you know the cliche world building. That's what kubrick does in each of his works. He just draws you into this. Just meticulously crafted absorbing sensory overload. The music the in from the from the opening images of the car winding through the roads of the topiary at the end. You're just like you are at the overlook stuck in there with this family. And it's just i always say i love the feeling of just being in a short hands of filmmaker and like an much more bizarre way. I would say wes anderson scherzer's right. Your buddy west creates a world that is just meticulous and you are in the strongest possible vision. And you're not gonna be let down. And that's what kubrick every time does and to this one to such great effect in touch haunting and i can't think of a movie that has more dread hanging over it so i think it's an unusual pick but i i it's a great peck. I couldn't put on just about any wes anderson moby and that would be a comfort zone easily Put on royal tannenbaums in that can be used that on quite often. And it's wonderful film. I just don't throw movies on again again for the sake of it. I just partially. Because i don't have time to sit down become I flat to do a lot of burning inside of me.

New Santana Mordo is here with more on what to expect in those seven minutes. Well, it's called the seven minutes of terror, describing the rovers entry descent and landing to Mars. Basically, it takes seven minutes for NASA's perseverance to go from the top of Mars atmosphere to the planet's ground. For the entire descent to general crater. The rover will have no help or commands from NASA's team on Earth. Perseverance will be plummeting to Mars at about 12,000 MPH and must slow down to zero in that seven minutes. The rover will use parachutes and retro rockets to help it will also use to rain, relevant navigation. Basically, that's mapping of the ground, determining where it's safest to land in real time.

"It's a pleasure to see you again. I see too and it's a real honor I think I'm going to give you a list like fifteen people they should have been on before me. We'll talk about that after the show. So. You. Matt. Two, three years ago. Now when I came to DC to do a photo shoot on your job site protection article, which was a fantastic feature by the way. Actually I was it was good to is always a well, I learned so much from home building and annual is really great take to contribute back. I'll put that article up on our podcast page. SOPHOS can check it out but it it. There was a lot to. You shared a lot about how you protect your clients homes. It was really a good article. Great things about working here as we get to try a lot of things and sort through which ones work the best. Everyone healthy the company has has the pandemic affected how you guys do business. In. The in the dynamic has definitely affected how we do things Fortunately, it's mostly been good. We've we've had a couple of close calls and a couple folks he did get covered, but they're all fine now. So calm. I mean crossing our fingers It seems like we're not out the woods by long shot but so. I agree. So are your workers practicing social distancing and and doing some other things? The rest of us are doing, it's hard on a job site, right? It's very challenging job site. It's it I find challenging. There's a lot of folks you just WanNa stand closer than sixty two year one talking. So I think we're doing our best began with masks were doing a lot with keeping moving through jobsites. Any were connected with indoor air quality experts who've been warning for longtime that the virus actually transmits farther than six feet lows around in the air. So we've been trying to address that for months and I think we're doing a reasonable job with. You know as I said, it doesn't seem like anyone's been infected on our jobs. So continues that way. So you guys work in. Maryland and Virginia mostly correct. Now DC actually has our most jobs right now. So we work in all jurisdictions and did those areas handle the? Necessity of workers differently were you able to work some places but not others? No we all at the end of the day all decided that ongoing construction projects were essential work So there was there was a a week when there is a lot of confusion and we actually shut the whole company down for one day. Because a bunch of pronouncing out and they weren't that clear but they all got sorted out. So we we were more or less able to continue working on like in lot places. And if you guys been getting a lot of calls like I hear other modeling firms of people who want to change their life because they're home all the time now. There's a fair amount of that. That's. Particularly, folksy need offices and. You know one better amenities at their house if they're going to be your own time. Do you think this is going to continue after the pandemic subsides. I've no earthly idea. I mean I know the the trend was definitely towards urban living were we've had multiple clients who bill giant houses in the far suburbs a move to condos townhouses downtown. And we've and we've remodeled those for so I, I don't. I can tell you what the collective of everyone's going to decide. My guess is that will continue because living in the city has a lot of things going for it. Can you tell me what you do for? Bella, and you can you tell me how you got into residential construction Sure. Neither of those is a super short answer by. What I have the best job ever I get to spend my days trying to help help us build well and built things that won't fail and it's It's been a terrific. Job The what I actually do. Most of the time I visit jobsites, I, work with newer project managers, and help train carpenters to do things. The way that we've learned while fail I work with subcontractors contractors, especially newer crews who or or people working on risky things like low slope roof sir large shower stuff like that. So it's all just sharing what we've learned over the years about what's succeeded in what's fail. So it's a That's what I do every day and then the way I got there is you know this is my summer job after college I always wanted to get into construction I lived in Vermont. There were not many jobs. The closest I came was painting houses which I loved but why it took the opportunity to come down in the DC area where there were a lot of jobs looked in the classifieds in the newspaper. So this was a while ago. started out digging ditches got huge blisters on my hands and and and by the time ten years have gone by learn to to I. was running fairly large jobs. They actually got to be so big that I couldn't use my tools very much and when we decided that we, it was time to start a handy person and warranty group I volunteered and that started meals on ten years of learning about everything that. Sales on, you know the the parts of the House we didn't remodel and even on our own work..

COVID-19 and domestic violence: A meeting of two pandemics

"I think it's become pretty clear to everyone by now. Self-isolation in this pandemic means dramatically different things different people at one end of the spectrum. There are the clueless celebrities making videos. About how their mansions feel like jail at the other end obviously are people who don't have a home to. Hashtag stay home and I'm much closer to one end on the other. Have a house and it has everything I need. I'm fine but there are people who at a glance. Have the exact same thing. I do. A house yard a family enough groceries but who are in real danger right now for some people. The home is not a safe place even in the best of times of course a depressing proportion of women as well as men are at risk of abuse or worse from their partners. And that's at the best of times when it's a lot easier to leave a dangerous situation as you may be aware these are not the best of times and it's not easy to leave anyone or to go anywhere so what options to people who are living in abusive situations now have what's being done to help. How can we find ways to get them out of their homes when nobody is supposed to leave? There's our guest. Today has reported on this issue for a long time and she will help us explain the crisis that so many. Canadians find themselves caught in right now but first we have to give you a quick roundup of what you need to know about. Kovic in Canada today and clear. Brisard will do that now. The cove in nineteen death toll in Canada has now surpassed one thousand however. There is some cautious optimism from Canada's Chief Public Health Officer Dr Teresa Tam who says the spread does appear to be slowing down. She says in late. March cases were doubling every three days and now they're doubling every ten days or so but as we've heard from so many people Dr Teresa. Tam Says we cannot let go of our physical distancing measures just yet Justin Trudeau has announced that the government is expanding the list of people who are eligible to receive the emergency response benefit. If you earn a thousand dollars or less a month you'll now be able to apply for the C. E. R. B. If you were expecting a seasonal job that isn't coming because of covert nineteen you will now be able to apply. And if you've run out of e I since January first you can now apply for the C. E. R. B. as well although British Columbia has managed to flatten the curve. The province is extending its state of emergency for another two weeks. It will also be releasing more modeling of cases on Friday and premier. John Horgan has hinted that it'll show more progress for the province. Ontario is still seeing hundreds of new cases every day but the chief medical officer says it is possible that the province is passed the peak of the outbreak. There were four hundred ninety four new cases in Ontario on Wednesday and two hundred and twenty one of those have been linked to long-term care homes in the US President. Donald Trump says he is cutting US payments to the World Health Organization during the pandemic. He's accusing the organization of failing to do enough to stop the virus from spreading when it first surfaced in China Canada's International Development Minister says Canada is disappointed in this move as of Wednesday evening at twenty eight thousand three hundred and seventy nine cases of Cova nineteen in Canada with one thousand and seventy deaths Jordan Heath Rawlings. And this is the big story. Sarah Boast Feld is a writer and a reporter a sometimes guest host of this. Podcast is Sarah. Hello Jordan. How are you is that a question? You're asking you know these guys. That's how we start. Now Yeah Yeah and I think like it used to be a very simple answer. It's complicated right. You know. Everyone's healthy in our home. Everyone's safe so we're that is something. I'm going to be really grateful for and trying to keep perspective every day. Yeah how about you how are you doing? I'm doing well I'm also safe and you know my home has everything I need. And like. I said in the INTRO that That makes me lucky. So we're here to talk about People who who are not safe in their homes even though it might look like they have everything. Why don't you just start off for those of us? Who are lucky enough to not Have dealt with this in a normal situation when there is no pandemic. How would someone Plan to escape an abusive situation. Well I think at the best of times people who are in abusive situations at its take them a long time to get the not only the courage but also just that perspective that okay. This is really not a a situation. I am safe anymore. My family is safe in anymore A lot of Women in particular there are men some men who abuse to primarily women. You know they. They choose to live with it for a long time. And there's a lot of psychological manipulation that happens is a lot of Mind Games you know. Often it will be you know. Their actual safety has been threatened in an incident or are few where they decide that. It's time to try to leave and what they might do. Is You know. Make call while they're at work on a phone like their office lying or go meet with a trusted friend and a coffee shop or physically. Go seek out resources at a sexual assault centre or shelter or any of the other resources that we have in our communities as we know now. That's that's there are a lot of options that are not available to these women now amidst this covert nineteen pandemic you. How does any of that work? Now I mean are some measures of these things still available for people who need help will yes. The shelter systems. Thank God are considered essential services. So they are open they are helping women who are in abusive situations and and also I think about this just in my own life. Thank goodness to that. Technology is advanced as it is because we do have video chat. We do have texts. We do have email who do have social media. We have lots of ways that we can check in and help one another and certainly these organizations that are trained and equipped to help. These women are have those resources. Well now The dark side of technologies availability. All the time is that there is some monitoring that goes on by abusers. Will we'd women's tax listen in on phone calls or skype calls or something so that's a danger as well and I mean we could talk about the dangers Jordan that are amplified when you're at home all the time with an abuser 'cause I just described you know you can. You can make that safe phone call at work. You can like go. Meet up with a friend in person so that you're not being monitored maybe or you don't have like a paper trail of things that this abuser could could get his hands on You know and then you have a reason to leave the house exactly and I mean our on the supposed to be leaving the house when we are getting exercise and maybe you end up on a family walk right in. You're not alone You know and it could be really really difficult because also like that is a hallmark of abuse to is isolation right like so abuse women are already considered already experiencing isolation before. We've all been asked as a public service. Public Health Act to collectively stay home and isolate ourselves like even that term is used now in common parlance talking about Cova but yeah it gets an isolating experience to be abused and there's a lot of barriers. Now that are set up for you know for women to actually get help. So we've been at this Some of US for months. Some of US for longer. Do we have any idea how dangerous this lockdown has been for women in abusive situations in Canada? Yeah we ha- we do have a sense of dot and I you know I've been heartened to see a decent amount of media coverage about the increase in domestic violence You know statistics candidate is survey recently. Just sort of taking the temperature people's feelings You know around the impact of covert on their lives and one in ten women specifically reported that they are concerned about violence in the home. And I believe that. The wording was vague. It didn't say are you concerned about violence in your own home specifically so we don't really have a great picture from that but what we do know. Is that the fear is real and I've been talking with some Shelter Staff and administrators this week.

Sharon Hogan is on the podcast to discuss the feature film. She's currently in called military wives. And it's out at cinemas. Now and she stalls alongside Kristin Scott. Thomas in the film is inspired by BBC factual series about a choirmaster who selects and trains amateur singers and in the film the partners are way serving in Afghanistan and it's just a really uplifting feel good film but with some very very hot warming moments too. When I went to there I felt like it was a film about female friendships and also women supporting each other. Say That's why I found it quite moving in places. I really recommend going to the cinema and seeing it with your friends. I think he will really enjoy it so I hope you enjoyed this episode and if you did please do leave a rating or review.

"Been to the gym or if you enjoy partaking of cannabis it's also a wonderful snack. And it it satiate just those cravings for sweet and salty that may arise. So this is really three recommendations. Yeah, it's it's it's a mega recommendation with an indirect implicit recommendation. That's incredible. How often do you think recovery snacks? And. Cannabis snacks overlap. I think that depends on the person some people do like train using canvas. I personally do not church and state for me. Sometimes I need to recover from my cannabis use and and refresh your electrolytes with with the granola bar shock full potassium magnesium. So that was that was the food thing that I I keep wanting to actually tell everyone about so why not just do it on a pocket? The other. The other thing is the last season of catastrophe started last or hit Amazon prime last week. And if you have enjoyed the series, which is Shannon Horgan, and rob Delaney. Shannon, Horrigan created pulling the great UK show. She she's done a bunch of stuff. She's kind of comedy writing legend, rob Delaney. Who was one of Twitter's first comedy stars? They created this show about a couple that has kind of a one night stand that turns into her getting pregnant in them getting married. So we're now in the four season the last season, and is just always been so wonderful and realistic and acerbic and ridiculous. And it's just great. And it's on Amazon, Amazon prime and stadia. Coming to a stadium area. Stadiums eating forever. What's your recommendation, my recommendation is for people who have maybe spent a little too much time staring into their screen, maybe playing future many games, maybe like not getting outside or eating and rooms with windows and your fingers are a little grubby with Cheeto dust, a sponge on your controller for those of you who would may be benefit from a little fresh air and the great outdoors. I recommend not actually going outside. But instead picking up the latest issue of the New York Times magazine, which is their voyages issue. And it is very good. Whether or not you like the New York Times magazine, I think this issue has something for everyone. I personally really enjoyed. There's a profile of Rick steves who is like just such a character. It's a fantastic reviled him, and there's a beautiful heart wrenching storing there about a week long trip to Alaska that takes turn. It's just lots of wonderful writing and stories that will inspire you to maybe get out and away from your screen. You read can you weavers pizza traveling across country by train. I have not. But I am the biggest Katie Weaver fan. Yeah. Really good. That's that's the past Sunday near tenth magazine. So like last weekend's or is it this coming week? Do you just hit the internet on Thursday? So that would be this new. But you can also read it online. Perfect Lord with your recommendation, my recommendation is my own content. Really? Yeah. Well, I'll be honest. It's just been a little bit of a hellish week in terms of deadlines. And so at night at home, I have not. I'm sub tweeting bosses right now. I'm also losing my voice in case. You can't tell I. Fun. I honestly like I'm not saying this to complain has been one of those weeks, come home. And I haven't like consumed or done anything interesting at all these whole foods. Fast. Lacks. I like I'm going to catch up up at some point and do something fun and interesting again. So the only thing I have to recommend is that I wrote a review of an ipad, mini, and regardless of how you feel about the ipad mini because I myself am not someone who loves ipads. It is hard not to love this little tablet, if just merely for its existence, and it's it's a it's a little tablet, and and I would be honoured if you all read my review, and you also wrote one hundred and forty six other stories this week. So when they're done with many, they can get to the researcher. Yeah. Go read my stuff make me feel validated. Thank you, Mike. What's yours? Well, I'm also recommending a piece of media. This isn't what I wrote. It's one that Jia Tolentino wrote already for you. Yes. Fully fully for me the day. This let me just back up a minute. If you live in a large city North America. You.

I mean, I will stipulate that your notably successful point in your career. An exceptionally good at what you do. But having come to success so late in your life as as a real doll. Halt a bit late by has a real adult. Not as a. Yeah. Does do you feel like that makes you feel more secure in the success you've earned or less? Definitely a dental secure in any way. Definitely think that you know, I still have the crazy thing of like stockpiling projects waiting for one or two or more to to fail. So, but that's not a bad thing. I definitely feel more secure in my self because you know, there's. I didn't know there's a confidence that comes with age, or or, you know, a belief or whatever, and I feel very aware of the fickleness of the industry, and I think that's very positive thing. I don't expect anything from anyone. I, you know, I'm I'm pessimistic. But in healthy way, I think and so I don't think I would have those sort of if you wanna call them qualities. I don't know if they are flows. If I hadn't sort of started a bit later because I feel like I've been through old I've kind of seen it. I know the tricks if you don't expect much from show business, do you still require something of like is it still important to you to have the approval in? Does it still hurt really bad when people disapprove? I'm presuming that the you like everyone else in all of entertainment got intenders payment in part. Pretty valid people to like you. Yeah. Of course. Yeah. It still really hurts. I mean, if something you know, doesn't go or doesn't even turn out of my head. You know, it'll it'll hurts. I don't I feel like yeah. I'm now, I still of the approval mainly from just my family. But but I also feel like I just have a need to do it. No. You know? Because like I said earlier, I think I would sort of lose my marbles if I didn't do it. And I kind of you know, I think now I'm a little bit spoilt because I've got I've got to make shows that I actually really like and with people I really like people I admire and so that that does kind of get in the way because then you're like NAS all I want to do. Now. I don't wanna do just anything. I don't want to just be employed. I don't wanna be just busy needs to be something that I. Care hugely bikes. Well, Sharon Horgan. Thank you so much for taking all this time to be on the show was really great to get to talk to you not. Sharon Horgan, the new season of catastrophe will be out later this year. Now's a great time to get caught up. If you haven't seen it you can stream it on Amazon prime video. Every now, and then we like to leave you with a culture tip from me. It's called the outshot. This one's favourite from back in two thousand sixteen recorded shortly after the passing of prince. My wife, and I went to see prince at the Fillmore, it was Valentine's Day, maybe ten years ago, we were lined up outside we'd never been to one of his shows, and we were surrounded by the folks who got tickets through his fan club. And there was this tall guy like six six maybe thin black. Maybe forty something dressed in this wild outfit. And he was walking down the line of people and every person in line he'd stop give them a rose and tell them that he loved them. For me. And I was kind of struggling to figure out what was going on like this guy worked for the promoter was getting a bobble headed a baseball game. He didn't look high and seem crazy. He didn't want money. If you didn't seem to want anything. By the time. He got to us. It made sense to me. This was just a guy who wanted to share a feeling just share something beautiful with each person. Tell each person he loved them as they were. Look prince might have been the greatest pop musician of the last fifty years, he found a number one hits on his garbage pile and he played every instrument, and he synthesized all the genres nee dances off in all of that stuff..

"But it was a weird kind of failing of, you know, temporary as it was sort of desperation. Well, one of the weird things about working in show business is that the patterns of work are so strange because you know, I think many to most people go to work, and then come home with some kind of normalcy, some kind of regularity, and for many people who work in show business, especially film and television their life is either not working or all consuming work. You know, when you're shooting something, you're working often more than twelve hour days. You know, you might be working sixteen hour days or eighteen hour days, in some cases, even. And you have been working on things that you are on camera four and writing, and you know, right now, you have a catastrophe on Amazon prime you're working on show for HBO like the all consuming. This of that is must be very difficult. I mean, it's scary. It's very scary. But. I kind of think there's not much I can do about it. I mean, there's definitely choices. I have made that would have. Freed up my life a bit more. But you know, I think as a writer, especially more than even as an actor. You have to have a few projects on the go. Because so often the things get picked up and I've had lean periods. I've had you know, a couple of years where you know, I only made pilots and nothing happened. And so I always always had several projects sort of, you know, ready to go how about this one. And as it turned I in the last two years about three or four things kind of moved at the same time and. You know, I'm not Daniel Day-Lewis. I can't take a year or two years off between films because no one would give a verbal, you know, whatever about me they and so on it's my career. And it's when it's going, well, it genuinely makes me happy and genuinely stops me from going mental. And so therefore, I know I'm I'm a better parent on a better person. Because of I would be a nightmare. If I wasn't working. I know you're about to say, I would be a nightmare. If I were dangled day. I was always making shoes. I would be a great Donyell Taylor.

"I I don't know if I was prepared for any of us because you know, like with the show, I got pregnant very quickly by accident, and we sort of shotgun married because my parents are Catholic, and we came home to tell them the great news that we were getting married, and then oh, and yet we're just American have a baby sorry. So I think I didn't even think about it. I didn't it wasn't. It wasn't kind of. I never felt like I wanted to be married. It was never something. I sort of was an aim of mine or it was just a thing that happened and. And I just don't get to romantic because audience by. No. But I mean, it wants romantic is that we stayed together. I think about way more amounting. And I think what's remounted is that we probably like each other more now than we did when he asked me to marry him.

"Goes. Welcome back to bullseye. Jesse? Thorn, my guest is Sharon Horgan. She's a writer and an actor along with rob Delaney. She co created and stars in the TV show catastrophe, which you can watch on Amazon. Now, I wanna ask you a question about making this show. So like a a couple of years ago, a friend of mine from a high school got cast in romantic sex comedy on cable television. It's called it's called you're the worst. Oh, yeah. And it's great show. But I watched it, and I was like all my God. The sexiness intensive grazing and brutal. It's not like dark at all. Well, it's a little bit dark, but like it's just what how fun sex. They just all kinds of stuff right abroad variety of things. There's no nudity, but all other things. Right. And the only other show that I've seen that has that feeling in the sex scenes is catastrophe that it is. It is it's kind of like mad, flailing gross. But also finding sexy you are there. We I'm finding out. You would rob are there? Banging. What is that? Like. Okay. So it's I think the really hard thing was writing that stuff because you're writing with your Powell you're sitting by your pal you are just writing comedy. And suddenly, you realize you've written really graphic kind of revolting sexy that you're going to have to perform with the married father of three that's sitting beside you. So the tricky thing about that was if we if we ever stopped to think about it, we kind of froze because it felt wrong. So once we got over that it was fine. Then I would say that the first time we had to snow. You know, the first kiss was the worst. Because I think he was so terrified of I hadn't done any screen kissing. I done my fair share screen kissing. I think he was you know, he wanted to be a gentleman and he was like def. I am not going to get any tongue or saliva near this woman. So it was like it was like, you know, it was it was the most unsexy kind of anything kiss. You've you've ever experienced. So, but once we thought out of the way, all the sort of vile sex ox, we did post dot refund because. Was it was just how can we make this funny? And how can we make this look like real sex and not, you know, TV sex because no one has sex that and people don't know beautiful and they have sex. They look and they make stupid faces on the grunting..

"My next guest is Sharon Horgan. She's a brilliant writer and actor. She co created and stars in the TV show catastrophe catastrophe is sort of a different kind of romance to British TV show runs on Amazon here in the states. It's about a slightly lost schoolteacher and a slightly dopey American advocates who hook up in London. They think it's basically just a particularly memorable one nightstand until they realize she's pregnant then eventually they fall in love so slightly hokey premise told without an ounce of hokey nece. It's gross. And rough and scary the characters aren't anti heroes. They're just human beings who mess up sometimes sometimes a lot and the show is really really funny. I talked to Sharon in two thousand sixteen right? As the second season of catastrophe was taking off it's now on its fourth season, which will hit TV's across the United States soon. Sharon, co created the show with rob Delaney. Who's also her co-star? Here's a scene from catastrophes. Second season at this point, the two stars are married to kids whole new set of problems Hogan's character has been staying home with the baby. She basically doesn't know anyone except the people from her. Mommy group almost all of whom she hates there's only one with whom she bonds they sort of bond in class. But when Sharon tries to make friends with her outside of class. She ended up getting the cold shoulder. So anyway, rob comes home from work one day and Sharon wants to vent to him. I got today on my mum friend. Not me anymore. Couldn't even high onto a mum friend. There's not like she's old bath she's beyond say. So does she go and hang out with the moment? And you know, while she's Royce every single one of those mums is probably more interesting than me. Rope. What did you said you could sit and you don't care. Right now. I don't know that I do care about that. I mean, we've got two kids under the age of three. My job is a nightmare and those things use up all my daily care units. So sometimes when you need attention at the end of the day, I got nothing left for you. And I know that's not fair. But what do I do you dig date, and you scrounge something up for me? Don't be lazy. What do you want me to say? He sounds like a she does sound like I'll kill her for you. Do you know how happy that would make me? I got plenty of hate units left. It's really weird hearing that the visual and hearing well might the kind of knows I can't even do it. Not see his face. It was weird kind of dislocated signed. Rob does. I mean, one of the interesting things to me about rob Delaney's new career as a British comedian. He now lives in London having moved from here in Los Angeles. Is that rob is like a parody of an American person like Fred Willard life. Well, like, I mean, just he just is like he has he's very handsome in a very sort of smiling and genial way, and he just has a kind of like Hello quality to we just full for that. Kline care. I mean, he's he's charming the English. Ladies all over the place. They can't get enough of them. You sort of like he actually sort of reminds me of like when a British comedian is doing an American guy. And he's like, oh, how are you? Mike casserole. But that's how he is in real life. I mean, that's how he he owned rates. He's you know, he's is very specific. Individual. That's what's so funny about him. Now, you had had a you've had a long television career in the UK Ukraine show called polling which was very deeply beloved. But rob until I don't know four years ago. Maybe three or four years ago wasn't even working fulltime in comedy. Yeah. I know when the two of you started talking about creating show was it always going to be romance. Oh, no God. No. We didn't even really cheerfully. We didn't realize it was amounts or magic comedy, or whatever you call it until we were screening us. We had a screening. Bafta and we showed the first two episodes. And then we were brought up on stage to have the. And the lady was interviewing us described as romantic comedy. And we were like, oh, really?

I'll talk to Hossam Manashe the comic and former daily show correspondent once gave a speech at the radio and television correspondents dinner was the first time he ever done anything like that the crowd mostly members of congress didn't exactly love what he had to say about Congress's ineffectiveness before the speech. He was a little worried about what he was going to say, then he got some advice. Former daily show writer Trayvon free. You're not there to like make Mitch McConnell feel happy about himself. No one ever gets invited back. So if if you have an opportunity to say something, and you're one of the rare comics that gets chosen to do this say something we'll talk about his experience as a Muslim going to high school in Davis, California. After September eleventh about his experiences at the Republican national convention, and he's kind enough to tell me a truly stupid joke. Then later, I'll talk to the great Sharon Horgan. Co writer and star of Amazon's catastrophe. It's a very dark comedy about a relationship. Born from a one night stand. The painter who Larry is sometimes leak picture of early parenthood? It's brutal and honest because Sharon and her co writer, rob Delaney had been there themselves. She lived for months. She had the face of a sumo wrestler, and she was handed to me. And I was just thought oh my God. I've never gonna vomited the I was lucky because two hours later, she was the love of my life. And finally outshot attribute to prince. That's all coming up on bullseye. Let's go. It's bullseye. I'm Jesse thorn first up this week Hossan Manashe, we talked in two thousand sixteen was the last time you really confronted someone like they're standing in front of you. You have to say something that could make the two of you really uncomfortable. And then you say it, you just say my guest Hossam Manashe grew up Muslim and Indian American in the small city of Davis, California outside Sacramento. He was confronted early on by things that made him uncomfortable. Like the time he overheard. His dad get a death threat over the phone just after nine eleven he went to school at the university of California at Davis where he assumed he would study and get a good job one where he wouldn't spend too much of his time confronting anything. But while he was at school. He ended up watching a friend's copy of the Chris rock stand up special. Never scared, and he saw something that kind of blew his mind. He was Chris rock standing on stage talking about things that mattered to. Even confronting them in a way that he hadn't seen before things like race. And what it feels like to be a minority alienate in the United States. He was so taken by the special. He ended up getting involved in the comedy scenes of nearby Sacramento in the bay area, he met folks, like W Kamau bell who would have a major influence on him and after winning some standup contests and a few minor roles on TV he landed a job at the daily show. How are you feeling right now? Trevor like, many Americans I have spent the last twelve hours refreshing, the Canadian immigration website, which keeps crashing. So I am panicking because melanin doesn't rub off. Then he got asked to do the White House correspondents dinner the first ever in the Trump era. You know, a lot of people told me Hassan if you go after their ministration, it would be petty on fair childish in other words presidential. So here we go. And now he has his own TV show. It's called Patriot Act. You can watch it on. Netflix afresh episode every week it's topical acerbic and very very funny when Obama took office he continued Bush era policies in his deportation numbers were astronaut Michael L, if you're shop, I that you obviously forgetting his campaign slogan. Yes, we can kick out more Guatemalans. The whole thing you were cheering too loud. You never let him finish. Now, his son.

I'm just glad that just makes me glad that I'm here trapped in this aging body right now and capable of enjoying enjoying the very mortal flesh and blood life that I have no Freeman Dyson also been a guest on the program. We did not talk about that. But that would have been interesting. It strikes will close on this. It strikes me that. So many of these scientific explorations the brain in the box. You know, the immortality of the singularity what you just mentioned Freeman Dyson 's these are desperate attempts by people who don't believe in God to create a God that's different and God is one way to solve the permanence problem. Obviously if you can't believe in God, it's interesting to be the have to find something else. Why is that? Why do we care? Why can't we accept the fact that life is is short? Now, an animal even proton with its limited consciousness or dog with its limited consciousness, doesn't I don't think spends anytime. Worrying about its mortality. I don't think it ever wonders. Should I eat this because it might make me sick? And then I'll perhaps died before my time. I don't think a dog has those worries we do why why do we have those worries and to me that say, I find that deeply inspiring that mystery it it is to some extent. It's a backbone of my face, my religious, faith, that helps me at least rationalize in a scientific world. But close with your thoughts on well. I think about this. Sometimes is that I guess intellectually rationally I accept that. None of our tends to create a transcendent meaning work. That's what religions try to do their some scientific attempts stews something similar to that. The kind that I was just mentioning Freeman Dyson has proposed. But. Wrestling with the meaninglessness of life is get has given me meeting. I feel extraordinarily privileged to at the age of sixty five to still be wrestling with these deep philosophical problems that most of us are supposed to give up in our sophomore year of college.
