Remember When? 2020
"Is interesting for me again keeping the remember when like personal. This is where we spend a lotta time. We're we no longer see it as player in the flesh for the rest of the year. Either of us since where it becomes it's very divergent path right that from here on where like a one hand like. I'm not leaving home. Match like we have like a night of looking like may fifth rewatch korean baseball together and adopt the nc diagnose diagnose in the how camps dyno's jeff passan his pinkerton behind him and stuff like that. So we're on our own and you know doing our own. Things have watching not only connect. Whatever we're doing to keep ourselves sane afloat and tennis players meanwhile are like having these very different ways of coping. Go various out most of them. We don't hear from at all right muslim. Just go off grid. I will say that that's absolutely true. Most of them have just shut off so the ones we hear from early the outliers right but also larger the more prominent in late april or even it was late. March was already in march. Like it's poss- put up this flog of himself alone. His monica apartment. Where in this yellow raincoat is like stream of consciousness thing where he's like losing his mind like he doesn't know how to function he's also like not with his family that's sort of like argument or something in their various flares that we saw earlier in the year with mentioned that. Adp cup saying like his mother like you know the him at a press conference basically so he's on his own journey there and like some the first things we see some of them are really positive like we see like venus williams during this year's one of like sort of a low key like warning actors like bit role but like remember remember when venus williams got greek or damaged optic flasher. Exactly what i was gonna say. What a queen. Venus harass gregoire showing ads dramatically colossus the ground in performance ecstasy and. It's just a lovely moment of venus is like having a really you know again. I felt bad about similar to the fire. Donation topic like rating people on. How they're handling this thing. But like venus is somebody who like really like seemed to be like at peace like really opening up being way more talkative than she had all year like. There's one of the things. I found him looking. This is skipping ahead like lexington. She does like after she beat via. First round gives this unbelievably a few sive. Chatty postmatch interview. It's just been so mike which is like for the last several years in terms of what she's like in not being very revealing a reticent to share too much open up too much has been very different venus so we have that now the other hand we have things emerging like you know. Say this the novak djokovic stuff where i quietly. He's talking about or on a certain serbian channel. He says things that are if not definition of what we consider antitax at least vaccine. Skeptical in vaccine. Chilling say. I don't know exactly what to put in. Then he touching these instagram wives which you know venus is doing flirted with record time of the people in and and and if only judge just flirted with dmitrov harmless he could've done it was right therefore with an option. This is the college novak where instead he by early he was doing his a few instagram's With turbine jafaria wellness grew guy to joke. Which is somewhat credit. I don't know exactly what happened here. They stopped by mid mayton one more. After basically i people started started combat. For what ridiculous nonsense being spewed in them so we just all tennis players like what a tennis player was tennis star celebrity without the thing that makes them why we care which is tennis. Excellent right and we're left with these pictures of people who stop paying their coaches right away was a big theme like all these top top players stop paying their. That was a really big. That was a really bad really was mentioned a few times and it really explain like because you you learned about it and yes no. I know. I was really struck by how within days. What was it like before the week of in usama. How fast set move your mortgage. That players immediately. Cut off the payment to their coaches who they are the sole employers of in there not not almost all like Every coach was estimated was more than ninety percent of coaches. Weren't getting paid at this point. It was it was. That's fine but i'm just saying when you say that oil like ebay. But but you'd only coaches were not getting paid and it just sort of like selfishness of tennis players end. We see tennis players as being very focused in very driven motivated and in this pandemic must have a crisis a lot of times that revealed that turned into self centeredness self-focused self-centeredness turn to selfishness. Turn to lack of care for other people right and to me. I saw this sort of across the board cutting off of the payroll department of their personal tennis. Teams their coaches who are people who invest their whole careers in helping you do well. The second you stop getting you missed one check. They get cut off and a lot of these players. Have making lots of money. Didn't have to bisley anyway. It me the wrong way seeing these these athletes granted. They're not in a fixed salary. They were not getting guaranteed income but for them to immediately cutting people's pay very quickly and even like occasionally federation like tennis. Australia started for furlough employees very fast and that bothered me a lot too because they had a full twenty twenty australian open and they had a folk coffers and they i think by i dunno april or so. They're already furloughing employees. I thought that was crazy. And they're going to be painful full prize money in if they go it in whatever a lot of the mountain workout and just a lot of a lot of. I was getting various enchanted with tennis and tennis players tennis players because there was no tennis but tennis players were not impressed. Me overall with their conduct. Yes you had venus doing

This Christmas Eve is turning out to be no different. A steady stream of congregants have been entering into the in through the front door for over the last half an hour or so. It's a picked up significantly in the last few minutes as services sent to start this very hour. Perhaps a moment ago. In fact, we asked a way asked congregant. Richard why?

Our pastor teaches the word of God and we're Christians, and that's what we believe in. Despite what these congregants believe, though they are violating the law by being here, and the church has already racked up hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines. The church's attorneys are fighting a quarter court order right now to help the gatherings. They say the orders are unconstitutional. Meantime, county officials are condemning, condemning this evening's gathering, warning that it runs the risk of further spreading the virus at a time in hospital capacity.

Don't gather with your family if they're not in your immediate household. We know we want to do that way. No, this is what we usually do during the holiday season. It's certainly what John Jacoby o of the city's Latino task force usually does it Christmas. It's the time where you get to connect with family have a seat sometimes all year and, you know, eat some of the delicious dishes here your ideas make And so that part sucks. It's like Damn dude like I'm actually really upset about that. But he's seen how badly Cove it has affected his community.

COVID-19: California reaches a grim new milestone
"California reached a grim milestone yesterday more than 20,000 new cases of coronavirus, setting a new daily record. The previous daily record set a week ago was 13,412. 6200 patients were hospitalized. Only 2000 ICU beds remain available in the entire state. California is seeing testing rates rise, potentially from people seeking to get tested before they travel for Thanksgiving. Positive test rates are inching upward. 5.5% of the town's taken over the past two weeks came back positive. And just weeks ago, San Francisco was in the states least restrictive yellow tear. Now it's on a trajectory to the most restrictive purple tear KCBS is Kathy Novak reports on what's behind the surge. The yellow tear allowed form or reopening, so city officials say more covert cases were expected to follow. But what surprised them was how quickly case numbers went up and how they spread into areas of the city that weren't previously is badly hit. Deputy Health officer Dr Susan Philip blames that not on one major factor, but on people's a small individual decisions are not following behavior. That we know prevent spread of the virus, which is wearing masks, staying 6 ft apart, not gathering in groups outside of our immediate households. These things aren't happening, and that's why we're seeing this increase in pieces. She says. Vaccines could be game changing for next year's winter holiday season, But for this one, we have to stay home and go back to basics. Like washing our hands. All of those things well, help us will enable us till we get to the point next summer next fall when the majority of us can get this back. You are. We can all get this vaccine and look forward to better times
Its time to talk about voting technology. No, not that kind of voting.
"The pandemic has forced lawmakers around the world to get creative about passing legislation but in the us members of congress still have to show up to vote in person or have another member cast a proxy vote on their behalf but a report out last week by the house administration committee says congress could conduct remote voting if it wanted to securely and with existing technology beth. Simone novak studies the impact of technology on governing as a professor at new york. University's tannin school of engineering. She says remote voting is already happening in other countries and in several. Us states via apple or roll. Call by phone. You know when we have our voices or our faces that's the best form of authentication of who we are. It's no different in many ways as we've seen from all of us working online that we can simply of express our opinion out loud this on zoom the same way we do in real space. It's really not the technology so much. That's the issue at the technology exists for members of congress to securely vote remotely during the ongoing coronavirus epidemic and we've already seen lots of uses of zoom and other of videoconferencing technologies to allow for example committees to me and the business of lawmaking. Go on around the world to if the house administration committee says it safe and already available. Why the pushback. So we've seen over the course of the pandemic. there were a lot of people from both sides of the political aisle who were worried about turning congress into a museum but people felt that really. This went against tradition. This went against the way the people were used to doing things. Don't forget that from legislators used to doing business in the hallways and face to face doing zoom meeting or doing a webex or getting online to have a meeting that was completely new and in fact training was needed to get people used to the idea of having a committee meeting online then part of it. Frankly is party politics and just objecting for the sake of objecting. One of the advantages of virtual committee meetings that you've had more openness. It's been more accessible to people who may not be able to fly to washington to testify for example do you see voting also potentially increasing If you don't have to be there in person. So we've seen examples from around the world of legislatures who have seen their attendance rates and participation rates. Go way up not needing to miss a vote. Because they're in their home district or need to be a need to be somewhere else. So i think we definitely have seen instances of greater rates of participation. We've also seen the ability for for example committees to bring in witnesses from all over the world. Something very difficult today to do today during covid but even pre covid would have a hearing with a few witnesses who would usually come a potentially from where it's convenient near in the beltway area or the usual suspects. We have the ability to have much more diverse participation and more participation in hearings and. I think what's really exciting. Is those legislatures that are turning to technology not simply to do what they do offline but do it online it's those who are really using technology to innovate in new ways to do what i like to call crowd law in other words to use technology to engage the public in the legislative process. So we're seeing lots of examples of this kind of crowd law innovation taking advantage of new technology to hear from more people more diverse people and to engage ordinary people in a process. That's typically been done of really far away from them and often to much behind closed doors but lawmakers could have problems connecting to the internet right. I mean we've seen some government officials lose their connections during committee meetings. Is the infrastructure ready for this. We have to take some baby steps to ensure that we have backup plans in place right. That's why in brazil they have a system that both works with an app and with the telephone. So there's a backup plan. I've been a witness in a congressional hearing and the person who testified with me had to do so frankly from her car because it was the only place that she could get reliable connectivity we have the tools and techniques and the processes in place that can allow us to develop procedures that will work including with backup plans so that people can for example is they're doing in other countries vote maybe not during the hearing but afterwards so they have a window of time in which they can actually register their participation if they can't get online then well and a reminder of the stakes here which is you know if you have people talking in the halls and having having backroom meetings that's potentially spreading covid. Do you think there will be more pressure on the house to adopt to take this step. In the coming months i think with especially with a change in administration and a posture. That will be really much more proactive. In terms of things like mask mandates social distancing requirements and public health and safety measures. I think we're also going to see some a changing culture and when you keep in mind the fact that the average age of a senator is sixty three. The average age of a member of the house is fifty eight and again. The cove is rising all over the united states. I think we're going to see both the necessity of really instituting procedures that help keep people safe but also really a change in culture in really trying to demonstrate for the american people the right ways to work safely and to act safely and that's going to create pressure. I hope for greater uses of these technologies. Frankly it's not cova today. It could be a natural disaster tomorrow. We have to be prepared to continue operations of government even the event of a disaster. We don't wanna be without the ability to legislate to provide the american people with services that they need to provide them with their stimulus checks and importantly to conduct oversight over the executive branch Especially in a crisis you know. We have the world's arguably most powerful national legislature and it deserves to have a modern and safe digital infrastructure. Beth novak directs the governance lab at.

The greatness of Rafael Nadal
"We talk about tennis. She was about this final and put it on pitting off having to actually summer. The achievement of rough on the dull winning thirteen, French Open, and winning this French. Open in particular and doing it in the way that he did because. It. So astonishing I'm struggling to process. Frankly, yes. Apologies in advance for hyperbole and use of superlatives, but if you can't use them now when rough on the is now hundred and two girls and has won his thirteenth title when when can use MS utter the extraordinary? What is the chief today, and of course, this is an achievement that is actually fifteen sixteen years in the making it is it is unbelievable. Walk Needle is able to do both in tennis number one, but also just at this tournament, one of his best ever career performances David today. I would say so this was Up there with what he did to federal in two, thousand eight when federal and a handful of games arguably even better I think because federal struggled that day I think the conditions were less suited to today on paper at least I would have thought compared to a high bouncing day in June, and of course, he's you know he's twelve years older I mean, let's not forget. He's thirty four that's that shouldn't be. Put. To one side because you know he's got a lot of miles in those legs lot of kilometers and it's it's just mind boggling that he can physically do it for star I think it bore a lot of similarities to what Jackovitch did to him in the Australian Open file of twenty months ago, which was Jock itch referenced in Oh Sorry Nadal referenced in his post match comments it had that same feel inasmuch as when we were discussing this yesterday and we were building up to it all week long the one eventuality are could not see is one of these destroying the other one that's just could not see I mean, which is again just another example of how good predictions I am. But it was. A performance that I wasn't expecting of that level and that that feels unfetter I found the down after what he's done over the last twelve years but. He lifted himself to a level. We certainly haven't seen at this tournament. And it was this fortnight anyway it wasn't. It wasn't just. Fortunate needlework open happen to be having Berlin day today is it wasn't just what one of these things the way the cookie crumbles he change things in his approach today he was an I believe the stats ended up bearing this out in terms of name body was quitting. On your coverage David about the net clearance on his kind being significantly. Lower today than in previous matches indicating how much more aggressive he was being on that I mean I think on both wings in particular on that on that can side he was. Firmly the aggressor out there in an joke which was on the back foot right from the word go and. He looked. Bewildered by the level throughout, imagine, imagine playing really good tennis and being the world number one. And having lost six love. I just can't I can't imagine how awful that feels. You know I texted you guys. At the end of that first set and I said. Other than serving a bit better. I. Don't know what he can do. I don't think it's a question of just raise the level a bit and that'll be okay. What can he possibly do? Yeah and he's been in his press conference Djokovic and use the word surprised by Nidal's level. I don't think he sold this coming from the doll based on what we've seen from the doll these two weeks. Yes. Nidal's been great. He's the final without dropping a set, but it's clearly not been absolutely top top level in the dull and I'm not sure your conviction was expecting the performance that we saw from the Dell today he was caught off Guard surprise bewildered and that that. is so much credit. As you said to walk in the door was doing he was the aggressor. He was taking every opportunity to hit his forehand down the line and standing up on the baseline and kind of taking the drop shot away from Jackovitch. I'm sure we'll talk more about that but just little subtle changes in his game that he made the just made this huge overall difference and with the intent that he paid with it was it was overwhelming for Novak Djokovic Channon. was kind of reminded of a little quote I read from turning adult recently who often the Schwartzman team match said a lot of people compare team to my nephew. But I, don't think that's a fair comparison. This was in Spanish. This was in the Spanish newspaper El Pice and he was saying that team is a great player, but he doesn't have the options in his game that Nadal has and. The different ways to be able to beat you I. Think this goes back to what we were talking about on a podcast recently when David you said the fact that these players are always adding things today game, the dull Djokovic and Federer, and the Dallas got so many different ways he can beat you. He can change what he does and he did that today and I think it surprised Yovich and It shouldn't be surprising to me, but at the end to us, but it kind of was surprising to see the dull change tactically against your that that rivalry has been so familiar in my head of what that looks like in terms of the patterns of the rallies and this one was different out there nobles the those tactical awareness today was was as good as anything I've ever seen from him. I think

Companies seeking out potential employees with autism
"Autism is a developmental disorder that can affect how the brain processes information. People with autism have a spectrum of abilities and disabilities. Some are unable to speak or care for themselves, while others can live on their own have unique skills like excellent memory or attention to detail. No matter where they are on the spectrum, many adults with autism have a difficult time finding a job. Even making it past the first interview can be challenging. But that may be starting to change. As we found out more cos they're discovering the potential of people with autism, and some are now actively recruiting for talent on the spectrum. All right, and then just head on over here Doing a television interview could be nerve wracking for anyone. But for people with autism. It's potentially overwhelming cameras, lights, microphones, not to mention having to shake hands with a stranger. But last winter before the pandemic, five adults on the autism spectrum agreed to talk with us about their struggles finding work. I was unemployed for three years. I just kept receiving one rejection after the other. Eric Roland has a bachelor's degree in sociology. How many jobs do you think you applied for? Countless can't even count about 100th. How did that feel? T get so many rejections? Well, I I felt useless. I felt Feel like I wasn't getting anywhere off life. Brian Evans and Philip Mitchell were diagnosed with autism is young Children, Sarah clients, and Brandon Novak. Not until high school. I was being a person with autism make you different than a person who doesn't have autism. You see differences? Oh, yes, I do see differences from person to person with me. For example, I'm good with numbers and good with mathematics. Differences in communication were pretty common. On what I've seen, like, especially with like nonverbal communication like body language and stuff. What would you like people to understand about autism, black of thie ability to communicate doesn't equal intelligence. Clearly they have talents and skills. We stay, Friedman hired Sarah and the four others at autonomy works. A tech firm. He started in 2012 to proof read digital content. And manage data for dozens of companies like Nike and Nissan. There are 32 adults on the spectrum here now working from home due to cope in 19, including Friedman's 25 year old son, Matt 102 yet Nothing beats sort of sitting in my office and looking over here and seeing mad at work, and the job is really given him sort of a whole nother purpose in life. Do you like the job? Yeah. I like that. It's a quiet office environment. Remember getting your first paycheck? June 22nd 2015 today. That's AH Did you worry a lot about what would happen in that when he became an adult for a long time. We didn't really talented with numbers really good with detail. So we figured that there had to be jobs out there for him. What we found was horrifying. Like there's there. No jobs, a child with autism, reaching 18 or 21. Suddenly it's Cliff. People talk about a cliff. We're graduating to their parent's couch. Winds up happening is a transition from structured school, setting into their parents house with really very few prospects Back in 2011 I was the idea for autonomy works came to Friedman when he was head of marketing at Sears, He oversaw hundreds of employees checking the accuracy of advertisements in newspapers. And the thought occurred to me. Matt could do this. This appeals to exactly the kind of way that Matt thinks and processes information. A lot of very small, detailed information. Yeah, it seems like a small thing. It seems like 21 24 verses 29 24, But there's tens of thousands of dollars of costs that sit in that error. Autonomy Works employees monitor more than 2300 websites a month for accuracy and quality. Friedman says they're extreme attention to detail has led to a 90% reduction in product and pricing errors, and they're so good at

"On Sunday at the US Open top seeded Novak Djokovic was behind in the first set to Pablo Carino booster. When he smacked a ball into a person's neck, Jovovich didn't hit the lines person on purpose but the rules are clear if you hit an official with the ball or your racket or anything else you can get kicked out of the tournament after a short debate Jovic got defaulted. It was a bizarre. And what's been bizarre tournament one being held without fans with quarantine rules that have been applied shall we say in consistently? Noah Rubin was in the US Open bubble he played doubles losing in the first round with his partner or Nesta. He's also got a podcast of his own it's called behind the racket and it's part of a larger project to reveal what it's like to try to make it as a pro tennis player. The injuries mental health struggles in the battle to make a living. No thanks so much for being here. Now, thank you for having me. So no Novak is the unquestioned best player on the men's tour. He hadn't lost all year. Roger. Federer Rafael and the doll not playing in New York he was an enormous favorite to win his eighteen, th Grand Slam, and then he hits aligns person with a ball which I don't think any of us had on our twenty twenty Bingo card What did what did you think when you saw that or when you heard about it and what did you make the decision to disqualify him from the US Open? You know throughout this time I think it's pretty clear that you know they can. They can mess up the rules and everything else but if anything touches aligns person. Even, a ballboy at times there's no question I. Mean I've been a part of two. Challenger tournaments actually where I've seen a racket hit off of something else come down onto aligns person going actually minus miles per hour and kicked out those during Charlottesville actually know what you're talking about Darren King and Charles are right there and then my limited experience commentating a match was last year and Charlottesville again and Michael Mo- you know when? To throw his racket hit allies person and that's it. So it's it's so easy I mean soon as you hit the ball as soon as he saw where landed, he knew I was going to happen. So actually as somebody who's seen this happened to lower ranked players is it actually kind of a good thing in your mind that when it happened with a top player, there weren't different rules that they just apply to consistently yeah I mean. We've seen this done before I've seen now Banda kick the side and then the would breaks it hits the lines for we've seen a done. This is the only rule that they stick to. No matter what happens you know no matter who the player is you can't get around it and especially this one I mean this one actually looked pretty bad I mean this is you know out of anger a ball head right to the. Neck can't feel good So this is one of those that you don't really look at the video like Oh you know might have been overly reacting to that situation this this looks pretty bad and the instant reaction was pretty much ananymous on ESPN that the rule was implemented correctly Brad Gilbert though did see the need to point out that joke that didn't hit the ball overhand he didn't hit it that hard he said he was flicking. Anger and I just WanNa be clear here when a professional tennis player decides to Flip. The ball. It's going a lot faster than I would flip a ball the way that joke of did that thing was cruising and clearly the woman was in agony. No, we've. We've seen it done before where players or like kind of upset but they just I'll use that term flick a ball and it's fine. You know it's it almost on the arrival comes down and hits you in everybody's fine does he don't even feel think this was a line drive that that wasn't really had the trajectory of just going straight. So you're looking at it and regardless of the intentions. Ironic that there are no fans and still managed to hit somebody but it's this is you know the situation and I guess the only person to be Jovic twenty twenty had to be Jovic. What was the experience like for you being in the bubble and want to get into? The quarantine rules and how there's kind of affected you. But before we get into the specifics of that, just you show up at the tennis center, you're there for a while and like what is it like just being on the grounds and somebody who's played in the US Open before like how do you compare this experience to past years? I mean I to say how disappointed I am that my house is nine minutes away from the tournament hotels. That's tough. And I can't get out to. Get the few things that I love to my place and for God but yeah. I mean the first few days actually amazing a dream come true. For me. I've had so much pressure surrounding the week or two, and even the week before the open you know getting. Texts. Third Grade Teacher saying hey yeah I've been a extra tickets I was like I don't even have enough for my parents so not dealing with that this year was actually Pretty incredible for people who don't know you've been billed for a long time like the best player out of New York since John McEnroe. This is my hometown this and I love playing in front of people just people. I know when it's you know I've I've I played Fed in Rod Laver. That's fifteen thousand people I've never met, but it's a little different when I, there's a thousand people I know every one of them and. They aren't huge tennis fan. So if I lose a match against like somebody who's sixty in the world, it's like, no, it should have had that one why Jews and I'm like this isn't high school tennis so it's A. To. Not Deal with that outside pressure was was actually a really refreshing and just to walk the grounds and not get the good old New York shoulder chest by accident or whatever else comes our way it was nice. But then you know this is not use opens falled. It got boring. I was there for ten days. There's really not much to do is only so many times you play mini and I think they did what they could at times but. There at Thursday. Yeah. Only had about five hundred people spread out amongst all the practice courts, all the match courts and the grounds. There's you can only when you look around, you see forty people around you. You were not pleased with how the tournament handled the protocols for players being removed after testing positive for the coronavirus of French player was kicked out. He had been around several other French players and you were explaining what happened you were on the waiting list right to get into the singles, draw what happened and what didn't sit right with you know. Backpedal for a quick second I. Mean I praise them for how much work they put into creating this bubble I mean it was a massive undertaking. Sure with that being said the quote that we heard over and over and stay sales director said we are preparing for positive tests as they should I mean this is putting a lot of people from around the world. In the same place. So here we are Ben Wallpaper test positive automatically gets kicked out. Great in my head I'm like I know people have spent you know immense time with him in close quarters than I was hearing rumors that there's video of close quarters without masks, and so here I am thinking that I have a pretty good opportunity to get in and this. Is because in normal years, there'd be qualifying and alternates, but there is no qualifying this year and the alternates can't be from outside the bubble and you have to be inside the bubble the only way to be, and you have to be in the tournament and the only way to be in the tournament without playing singles is to be in the doubles draw so. They take the highest ranked singles, guys from the doubles draw. So here I am in pretty good contention, my partner and I both in pretty good contention to get in through the contact tracing knowing what would happen but then USA came out and said working with the New York State Department of Health we came up that we're going to have a bubble within a bubble. And I was like. Interesting maneuver. Here. Amid long story short, it just seemed like they were paving their own path for success that they were going to make.

"So we need to, we can continue talking you can continue to make your appeal to the manager here, but we have to stay socially distant at least had feet apart, and so again, it was just the levels of all the weirdness where the media is actually able to hear this conversation going on we. Have these guidelines that say you can go in this area you can't go in this area and just everything else on top of it. No fan noise to obstruct all of it. It's just one of those situations where this will never happen again in a non bubble environment and You know you just see people I think distilled down to their essence in the bubble I think there's really no hiding here you. Are who you are, and if your money mccutchen and you've got an open ear to player complaints and you're just a nice guy and you WanNa, talk things out that's how you're going to be in the bubble. If you're Chris Paul and every single time of fouls called on you, you feel like you're being wronged will that's who you're going to be in the bubble to are they not allowed to show the? Friends and family section and have you seen it on TV now I mean I've been wondering when I hear fan noise whether it's piped in or whether it's whoever is sitting in the stands in my assumption has been that it's team personnel but why wouldn't they show the like family members, Ben. So most of the noise you're hearing on television, we'll be piped in There is a lot of piped in music piped. Sound effect and they actually have like customized music for each arena customized sound effects from your home arenas to try to your. Home. Team advantage homecourt advantage try right and all the players laugh at that. They all say it doesn't make a difference. I have no idea if it does but they've ramped up the audio, it's actually kind of annoying. I wish they would turn it down a little bit in the the arena but. Once, in a while I've heard from people watching at home, but they will cut to the crowd section just kinda tight shots of fans. I think part of the reason why they don't do it more often is because it's still weird because we're still only talking about like twenty or twenty five people and I think there's some teams frankly, I don't even know how many people they brought maybe five you know I, it's there's been some games with the rockets where you'll see daryl morey standing up and cheering for dogs and three pointers and you look around and there's nobody else in his section you Kinda feel bad for the guy it's like come on, you know get him some. some support on this in cheerleading department but Yeah I. Think they're trying to keep all the action on that court as much as possible. They really tried to create a stage, a television stage with the lighting with the microphones that they've got picking up the sneaker squeaks and all that stuff to sort of I guess compensate for the other limitations they have because these are very basic gyms I mean they would function very well as like a high school gym right at a a mid sized high school I mean there's going to be a lot of schools around the country that have sort of a more impressive like facility here than what the NBA's working with. Ben Gulliver rights for the Washington Post. His podcasts are open floor in greatest of all talk the buck which you can pre-order despite the fact that it doesn't exist. It's called Babol Ben.

"Hi I'm Josh Levin Slates National Editor, this is hang up and listen for the week of September eat two, thousand and twenty. On this week show, we'll be joined from inside the NBA bubble by the Washington Post Ben Gulliver. We'll talk with us about cratering of the top seed in Milwaukee box and other happenings from the pro basketball playoffs tennis player. Noah Rubin will also be here to talk about life in the US Open bubble and top Steve Novak Djokovic disqualification from the tournament after he hit a lines person with a ball. Finally, we'll speak with DOM Costantino of the score, but what to expect from the NFL, the season and? The NFL is starting this week on Thursday. Actually I am the author of the Queen Those slow-burn season four. I'm in Washington, DC Joel Anderson our friend colleague is off this week but with me from his Home Office in DC as well Stephan fats, he's the author of the Books Word Freak. Any few seconds of panic, hello, Stephan, Josh. So we're GONNA talk about this in our segment I lay plus members coming up but we were just talking off the air that this might have been the busiest sportsweek ever. I mean at least since we've been doing the show we're actually trying. To think of what sports are not happening now and could not think of any now and it's the combination of things that should have been happening. Now that are happening even though we expected them not to be happening. Then the things that we're not supposed to be happening now because they should have been happening earlier in the year that are happening now. So yeah, it's a crazy confluence of too much going on. We could have done to other shows with Steph. We didn't talk about, but we discuss how we have been consuming the busy time on the sports calendar in our bonus segment. On Sunday in Orlando, the top-seeded Milwaukee Bucks beat the Miami Heat in overtime in game. Four of the Eastern Conference semifinals. That was a good thing for Milwaukee certainly. But the overall basketball picture for the bucks it's still pretty grim. They're down three one in the series league MVP. CUCO missed most of that game with an ankle injury. It's at least possible the Yanez won't ever play for the bucks again it's possible has next NBA game will be their opponent, the Miami Heat. Joining us now from the NBA bubble is Ben Gulliver Ben writes about the NBA for the Washington Post. He podcasts about the NBA on the shows open floor and my personal favorite. Greatest of all talk he's also writing a book called bubble. Ball will be out in May twenty, twenty one if we as a species, make it that far, Ben, thank you for being here. It's my pleasure and thank you for all. Of those plugs you nailed every single one I appreciate it. No Problem Sir all right, John Hollander wrote a piece for the athletic. The bucks demise in these playoffs is a complicated and nuanced story. But we're all very busy people here Ben. We don't have the patience for French words like Nuance explained to me I'm an idiot who is short on time why have the bucks gone from a historically great regular season? Team to a playoff flop, there's a bunch of things going on. I. Think First of all, they just never looked like the same team here in the bubble than they did during the regular season during the regular season, it was a Juggernaut team they were heading for our records, the top seed home-court advantage all the way through the playoffs. But what they got here, the vibe was just not quite the same and. We heard from some of their players early on you know, should we even be playing as this a distraction from the Social Justice Movement George Hill was sort of loud and vocal on that issue they had a couple of players test positive for the coronavirus which delayed their arrivals down to Florida and I think that shook up you know their their chemistry, their cohesion you also with their MVP on authentic. Gupo he had a brand new newborn baby at home who he was separated with for for more than a month I imagine that would be a factor as soon as the books were allowed to bring family members here a his girlfriend baby were sitting courtside at Emilia. You know the first day they were allowed. So I wonder if if that weight on their emotions as well, but once they got on the. Court here they've they've had a losing record their offense has not looked as smooth as it did during the regular season obviously, that starts with the honest himself. He struggled in the playoffs to be as consistent and dominant as he was during the regular season, and then I think there's been real questions about their defense, their entire strategy on defenses predicated around protecting the paint and giving up three point shots the math. Pencils out on that for them. During the regular season, they had the number one defense before the shutdown but here in the neutral site where everyone's shooting the ball, well, where offenses are going crazy where all sorts of role players are having their moments in the sun the math has kind of changed and they've been out shot and kind of outscored in in Games both during the the restart regular season in. Here during the playoffs against the Miami Heat as well. So I think that they've been slow to adapt. They've been slow to bring their team together and they just haven't looked right I. think there's no way. If you had only seen the bucks play down here at Disneyworld you would have ever guessed they were overall number one seed is that a failure of Mike boot holes, the head coach to make adjustments that. To make in this weird environment or is it some combination of other teams figuring out the bucks weaknesses and exploiting them in this weird environment? I, definitely put a lot on his shoulders Patrick Beverley had that famous quote. The bubble is what you make it and you could even see that with media members like I feel at home I'm ready for another bubble next season and that makes me probably a Weirdo. But I, think I've settled in pretty well here and you kind of make the most of it. I know some of my colleagues were like dying to get out of here as quickly as possible counting down. The days and and looking towards their freedom. It's a real mental challenge. It's throws your entire life upside down you're cut off from loved and all that stuff and I think ultimately it's the coach's responsibility to bring their teams together when they got down here let them know what was sort of what was the task at hand was find ways to keep them happy and motivated and just sort of rebuild things after a long shutdown. I'm not sure Milwaukee ever did that. Their vibe just hasn't been the same kind of goofy happy vibe. They had during the regular season at all and in fact, you could see how? You know rod the the emotions got when they decided to walk out from their game against your magic to protest the social justice issues you could even tell from their quotes afterwards, how sort of heartbroken they were, and so I think to a certain degree coming into that Miami series they just weren't ready emotionally psychologically and then strategically as well for that series I think they were just really shaken up and you can't put that on good holes or necessarily, but I think overall you know the the by an factor, you certainly can attribute to him, and then within this series specifically, there's a lot of. Things. You can nitpick I mean the minutes management not playing his superstar level players, Jaanus Khris Middleton more than thirty five or thirty six minutes in must-win Games not adjusting his defense in his lineups once it became clear that the other teams were shooting the ball very well and You know really just bombing outside you know he he doesn't really change things up he just kind of let that happen in game one Jimmy Butler is going absolutely crazy. He never thinks to change up his defensive match-ups just lets it happen and now they're in Oh, one whole. There's a lot of different things you could say you know. Just being a little bit slow on the dry and being more reactive rather than proactive, and you can contrast it to Erik Spoelstra and Brad Stevens, who I, both I think both had their teams down here was sort of a business trip mentality were pulling things together both those teams, the Boston Celtics in. MIAMI. He'd have played very well here in the bubble they've looked very steady. They've looked stable and I think ultimately like that that. Matters, and that's why coach is going to have a lot to answer for this offseason. So I guess there's always the question of how much any of this stuff matters even in a an enormous but in the context of the NBA, obviously, the entire purpose of it is to win a championship but do you have a sense being in the bubble if and maybe it's just hard to say like maybe the just all seems like ex post. Facto like and you're drying conclusions based on the results but are you able to sense whether there are certain teams that are looking at this as like this is just like any other postseason any other play offs like it's incredibly massively important for us to win and are there other teams that are like this is just a weird unusual season and if we don't, you know when it's not like a normal year and we can't we're not. GonNa be all broken up about it. It's a great question I'm glad you asked it because we're in the the final late round basically, and I've noticed kind of a change in tone just a change in every demeanor around the entire bubble experience when they first brought the twenty two teams down here there was a lot of teams and players who knew they had no shot whatsoever to win right?.

By the way the more we go into this technological model the more we're just going back to ancient Hinduism and Buddhism because there are monks deliberately do karmic acts to accrue more Karma so that they don't get enlightened so they they can stay in the game because once you're enlightened you leave the Buddha. The story of the Buddha was like I've been reincarnated thousands of times. I get it. I'm out so then they up level and some of them are like it's the Matrix. Ignorance is bliss. I'M GONNA keep eating steak. Yeah I I like a sixty nine as much as the next guy. I'm going to stay here so I'M GONNA DO UNCONSCIOUS. Things on purpose to remain in the in the simulation sure the state. But that's a that's as old as Buddhism. Well so houses of years old this idea and now we're like if we figure this out it's the kill screen and Donkey Kong the game's over and we don't want the game to be over and you and the surprises that are happening in the world are so amazing because our bias or bias sees is going into the computer so in other words Your Fun the guy. Jeff bezos Amazon. They created a system that read resumes and looked for the things that Amazon always looks for so it read six hundred resumes of people that they hired and it stopped looking for schools with women because none of those had women's schools names and they looked they. They tried to look for a women's studies. They got rid of it because it was because it just started a bias because Amazon. Didn't machines or mirroring are bad but also just like oh oops. We didn't expect that like we expect. It would just not look for things that weren't on there like women's study and such my phone sorry playing radiohead kind of appropriate Karma Chameleon daydreaming now danger. What's their song? Fake beat done like whenever they played at Bonnaroo. They're like they're banging their head to it but it's it's skipping a beat. It's it's it's brilliant. It's supposed to be like the best song ever written he. Yeah he's what they're doing is they're manipulating the song it's a house song but they're doing they're missing a third beat on on purpose so their heads are going like this but the beat is interest. Yeah their heads are like house and see. Radio added the dudes that are like this is a simulation. But let's stay yes. Let's stay how we can manipulate it. And if you see the song on Youtube live like it takes a little bit to get to the beat because they're creating something that isn't there. I want to know what that's one of their songs. And everyone's even radiohead fans like. Oh it's so slow but it's so fast why I see. There's a lot to do here. I think enlightenment doesn't isn't you don't have to be done with this world to want to wake up but you do lose it. This the temptation. So Christ in the desert with the devil. He tempts him with power. He tempts him with influence and money. And all these things. These are the things that we have to let go. Oh yeah believing. I think about this all the time. I was having a conversation with Richard Roy in the shower and I was just like yeah. I chose the first one the devil was like I'll make everyone know your name and I was like I'm GonNa stop you there anymore. And Jesus was like Nah but then caviezel comes and he's like I'm going to circle back and do that again. Well so that's why I think I should be celebrated because I have found the what life is about without being Jim Carey rich. That's right and the guy from it's always sunny and he you know he He's understands what life is about money and fame and which one Charlie They'll blind the bond skinny the mail. Yeah I don't know what he recently said one of the main three characters he's Great Glenn Howard Glenn Howard Tan. He saying viewed him. He's great not for this though. He said yeah he's like you know what I've realized what life is about and it's not about collecting things and money and although we are consumer driven market so buy stuff. He said that no. I'm saying it because I'm poor and I'm saying Oh what it's about you celebrate it money. Some of money Pe-. Some people are dumb enough that we need to have it to realize that it wasn't about that. The Universe was generous enough to be like you think it's about that car you saw on my street. Let's take a peek in the heart of that guy. Yeah because you're right. It's not about that and you should be celebrating. I know you're joking. No no I'm not I am but in the and and going back to childhood. I can't help but to think that the childhood that I had helped me have empathy and understanding and and realize that this world doesn't have to be five hundred foot yachts and patty dying on the street. I just had a bout of suffering without going into specifics but it was heavy and afterwards my heart was so open when I was performing it went from being about Pete Getting Glory to making everyone in that crowd who is carrying an unseen burden. Feel better it shifted. I started texting people that I haven't heard from. I started when people told me about their problems because I had one like a lump of hot coal in my throat I had one. It could recognize it in them and that is the point. I think is I go. I could read about suffering. I can think about suffering but when you have it I can. I can help yours and you can help mine. And everything changed. So my my. It's in my book. When it was happening I was in the bath room and I was giving Leila a bath. I was just like vibrating with just real sadness in Maine and I was going. Thank you thank you. That's the game for me is in real time to try and I am proud of myself. I don't mean to Brag about this but I've done this forty years of this or twenty years of trying about this stuff. Yeah Wow I was suffering going thank you that Maharaj Ramdas grew says suffering brings me so close to God and I was just going like thank you. I don't understand this. I hate this but thank you. Thank you thank you and then the the weeks after this conversation is better because I had my ask kicked emotionally. It's one of my family was visiting. Let's the hint I'll give and I was just like when I'm talking to you and you have this pain the conversion of that into something useful. So you're talking about the maybe. The Universe is a simulation to learn how to stop war thoughts. Or No. I know but I but that that's very basic spiritual idea that the universe is God's play learning about itself and figuring out empathy not just wanting to hypothesize about it but really run the experiment. What does it feel like to be a teenager in love? What does it feel like to be an old person in your and your wife of fifty years dies these horrible things? But there's this drive it's like it's like it's rule of thumb being wants to be if God has a want it's to be it's to run. It's one code which is being. Yeah and that being takes every form because if you were infinity what game wouldn't you play and one of the Games is Pete? Having all of his childhood trauma visit him on a Thursday night. We'll.

She always invited the whole city to do these things and some people did it. She used to play poker with Les Moonves as they've been friends since he was an actor finding a isn't it funny that it's harder to be an actor than it is to be a producer. Wow because he used to. He's trying to act so that she used to. She used to represent them or something. They buy cards. Those were expensive card games around town and so they were friends forever so she was doing her a favor. Les Moonves Fast. Yeah he probably just wanted to meet the young girls in town.

I forgot I forgot where thirty five people that don't know him so my God and and so it's that for forty five minutes and then after the first group leases trauma by the the Second Group. I still all the bad brown live. Don I remember every word of it took me a decade or two to get over this. You know like I didn't know why I was having panic. Attacks and beverly sued and this was high stakes. I was in a class. I had no and I said I. This is my initiation to this woman. Her name was Marnie. And I was like a Julie. We have to talk. You've been our nanny for six months. Now it's been going great but you didn't know what we have. Nanny Cams all over the House. That was the opening line and she goes. Yeah but I've been taking the tapes out of all those nanny cams so you don't know anything and I was like and afterwards. My teacher blamed me. He was he was like. That's what I means like everything that makes us want to be performance to be good to to shine to do well and then that's on you. I'm like oh. Are you kidding me? My First Class was shown. Halpern she goes. She's I a scene. I'm like with a guy and I'm like it's your. It's your turn to do the dishes. And she's like is that true. Are you roommates with him? And I was like no no well the why would you make stuff up? I don't understand she goes the truth. That's not help helping nice black shirt I like. She wanted you to play in the reality of you to as human improvising. Abc or maybe. She's having with day or they do that. I I'd been mentioned so she wanted me to put my place. I have no idea what's put in for sure. I'm GONNA be yeah. I really thought you would know that I was doing a bit when I said. Do you want to eliminate it breaks my heart that you were like limited? Well I just been trying to say yes to more things because I feel well because I was a closet eater. I didn't like I don't like people watching me eat or drink. That's how I was and and I always drank alone when jobs. I'd go go to the cafeteria and nobody was there. Eat Eat alone or my desk. I never wanted so whenever somebody who's like all I have tacos tacos on you talking to a great gone yet and I'd be like Oh no no no. I don't want your grandmother's recipe tacos. Connie I'd rather just eat air. Yeah and I'm like they're to the point I was like that's so stupid like turn down food that surprising that people making are offering right. And if you have lemonade you know homemade back there. Then I'll take it. I'll be right back piecing off like forty five minutes. We do have a lemon and water. Trees are great. The trees are great. We're grown men. We're having grown men CONVOS. I'm GONNA come back when it grows up taller because anything that's over. The fence is pry public really. Yeah so I could take you on a walk in the neighborhood and show you. What the limit overhanging lemon yes. That's what I do yes I do. I grab them grab them. You know they're going to waste and so after so we're in the second group of know your neighbor now in beverly beans department. Why do they have the best improviser being the reporter? I feel like that's the straight me either. So many great questions. Why did I just say something? Yeah Yeah Yeah so then. The next group comes in and I'm so it's full on panic attack. No therapy no medication. All before that. Yeah there's no idea and the guy that's when the guy says oh boy. It's really raining out here. You're you're rain's getting all over you know that's not one I hate. He said I hate no gets worse. He goes you're sweating. Why are you sweating so much? She's going for the cheap laugh and I said. Oh it's because it's raining out here and then it was twenty more minutes of that and then afterwards we gotta ask questions Lisi. He didn't say no. It's not I thought for sure you know so we gotta ask questions. And that's when they said to the eighteen year old kid they said. Are you emancipated as like? I don't even know what that means. Like I don't belong. Who's asking questions Les Moonves and now they're asking you what's his name. Danny Rape Danny rate he asks yes you yeah He. We were allowed to ask him questions. I was part of the deal and some people. How do I make it in the industry? Take these pills and oh God so so that was it. And so then everyone leaves and it's just me and my manager and she says what happened. I was like I don't I don't know she's like that was terrible. That was awful. They they told me if co because we went when she tells you yet because we went back and trying to force this is your mom saying is in there someone else you can talk. I know decades to take me to you know. It's just amazing. How long this stuff takes it. The way our psychology. Keep reproducing these situations until we deal with them. Yeah is what I have Right. I would think so what things I call. And and maybe even two point things to that day that aren't related. And you know what I mean like if I went to put it you know if I went to put it all together. That panic attacks are happening in this part of Beverly Hills. Every time I walked by this part of this conversation happened. Yeah she says a lot of things. If you think that guy's a stew Har- yeah so then he said they so after the show. I mean this sincerely I feel like I could see you have an off night and still be like that. Guy Scott Equality for sure. Yeah it's interesting it's interesting. It's such a unique dude. They is interesting. And and so you know she li so they all they all even as she said when. I put you back in the room and brought you before I brought you back out. They told me if they if you think he's a star you and he should leave the industry right so there was wine with dinner saying to his dear friend right. Who's not gonNA leave the industry? She represented Jim Caviezel and so then a week later. I'm like had a relationship for seven years. Grow out here and I was like yeah. That's it I'm done. I'm out of here and so it was long distance for four of those years but and so I so I was like I need to go learn stand up and so I moved back to Chicago. What gave you that idea. Fear you hadn't done. I belonged hating myself. You know like you thought the ants. I think I just wanted to go back somewhere that I knew it was safe. And the With people actually think a situation with a bunch of people who are doing terrible Improv. With you would drive a reasonable performance to stand up. Because you're like at least I can control it totally wonder why it was. It was if I'm going to take this seriously and changed much in my life. I've got to be the one driving driving. Yeah but it's still more fun to work with people and informative. Isn't it funny? Though that like stand ups peer standups the guys that I did the opposite. Where left Improv? After I started doing San well. It's not the opposite. I was doing problem than I got. I always looked at Santa's the pure cut of it. I was like I can just get more of what I like but I missed the community but then stand up can drive you back into the community yes into acting plus when I moved out here this for the second time Matt Braga and Kyle Kinane in the stand up comics like them have had already laid down the groundwork to the point where they could vowed someone. Yeah that's right so that that time around to the first round. I didn't have any of that. When did you go back to Chicago? Two Thousand and two or three. Yeah see we did it. We had two to three years of overlap. Yeah and then I saw an I saw I said spines earlier and I think it's because you knew that yet. What am I do you know this? What am I first bits? It was like a signature bit. That's how great the scene was like open. Microbes would have been that we knew and it was about. Where did the phrase spill the beans come from India? We're all phrases created at that time. Yeah like painting the town red you remember and someone with a big sack of beans and they spell it and they go be in the more famous you'd get the more we would be like away areas. I want to pay you a very. This is important to me. So we'll keep a brief.

This humiliating motherfucker was like how was the pressure. This one was over and he made me lie third time. It was good but I played it through. I was like in that case. I stand by my decision to lie because what am I I can hear Chelsea. Peretti had been like tell them. Tell Them I told you twice a good friends. So that's why I'm drawn to Neal Brennan Chelsea and these people that know how to go. Why asked you twice it and really. It's still feeling sore. Then maybe he would change like like.

It's having some sort of agency over. So what I do I to a eat to live and so you love food. Whatever that is and it's the lived lived so when I say what I say is maybe so hungry what I say is I can always order more food. They're not going around for thorough restaurant. Yeah here's what I think too. 'cause I when you hate yourself when you don't want to cause any problems I never sent food back now. Certain food back no problem because the cost of that restaurant is that employees. Not The food. The food is nothing. They'll send it back all day. Yeah it's so that kind of stuff helps me be like.

Maybe it's just you have to let it go for sure. You had like the ultimate like I. At a certain point you had to resign responsibility. Is that what we're saying? Oh totally yeah. It was the next day I mean you know. First of all you lived with a disease that he was only supposed to live two years with and he was on year five well and he was going in for a pacemaker and dental surgery but he had diabetes and those would have been tough surgeries as doctors are like contractors. Contractors are always going to quote you like a low number and then be like sorry. It's higher doctors are like the reverse if I think you might die in two years but it might be like seven years. I'm going to tell you the two because then you live the seven. I'll be like where the best in the BIZ. You don't WanNa go now high. Because then you'd be like you said seven. Yeah that's right Dr. Dark no you would lose your license because it wouldn't be the truth. What the truth is a drug was invented? Oh that was like forty thousand dollars a month but my dad's insurances happen to cover them. Oh well but this drug kept him alive and the doctor said had a patient live as long as you on this so I don't know what to tell you. It was all because he wasn't any drug I think they're just free styling like contractors. But you're you're right. There's the hippopotamus they're not like contractors who they're like. Oh do it. Doctors just away contractors and we're like get Ted over there to do it right right. I see so there was a miracle drug basically. Yeah and I think I I told my Oh my dad said I don't want to call nine one. I don't one wear your mom and I said mom will will be much better. She comes home and finds you dead. I love you you said that. Yeah then the neighbor he dies. He dies three hours later. And my that timeline. Because the neighbor went over it ten thirty and found him and then when they came there like he's been as maggots and aunt said been dead about. This is biting his teeth. That's probably been dead for the boy phone. Still my God the best looking for there's still hot grip and you found no country for old men. The milk's still gold. I'll share. He was just here. We'll Wilshire and Tommy Lee. Jones is always cool and calm wheelchair. We'll find. Yeah by the way Matt Damon and it's just becoming Tommy Lee Jones. Have you noticed? Let's see watch Ford V. Ferrari I think all right. That's all he's doing Tommy Lee. I'm not saying that's bad. I'm saying Oh cool. Because Tommy Lee in no con- yeah hooked so old and that movie was like twenty years ago. You ever get that feeling like how Selina Jones. Yeah he's looking a little more to FAC- I that's dark they snow rally very old is what I'm saying is I can guarantee that. He went for that Wurley Bird. Now I'm just thinking about your brilliant again. Are you burning? Just just be. Honest is this is this. Is this a sabotage? I walked into that but I do so do improper three months. And it's incredible. It's so funny everybody's like this is so great. This is wonderful. So beverly deans like well. I'M GONNA call over these two producers. This is before less was with an lane and and then and an harvey was Miramax. Yep so she invites them over and feeds them in Italian dinner. Great and she said when you guys come over go into the my bedroom and just stay there until we're done which is three hours of laying on the floor waiting and instead of fifteen he's had an Improv team on ice instead of fifteen people she invited thirty five people and I don't know who these people are right. So she's like she's like okay. They're ready for you so we come out and I'm the one where snacks in the bedroom. Now now you're in there for three hours snack list laying on the ground because even if you weren't hungry when you got there you were hungry come showtime and why. I mean a lot of things and some of you probably did come hungry because you're that guy smell Italian food. A big part of acting is being prepared in moments like that and those are things I learned later. Have a pack of peanuts in that backpack. Well and Yeah. Just be like okay. I got mentally when you're sitting in a trailer you've gotta be like mentally prepared mentally prepared. Yeah he called Onset Improv. For me I used to listen to like. I love listening to hip hop lots of words. Lots of images. I was trying to get inspiration. Fill up the tank if you had me like when I would audition for a herald team at UC be. I remember just being in a room like that for twenty minutes before they would see us. People you've never improvised with before terrible terrible additions and I was like I know. I'm a good improviser but like I'm with fifteen nervous people. We're not GONNA do well. Well he ask you do have to turn that back on yourself and be like I have to remain calm. Yeah that's right and and take care of me. How am I gonNA soar with the Eagle in? That will take care of these other people that are like I'm a lawyer and also I do Improv. Because it helps me speak. That's great. That's great we literally had a guy from the EMINEM. Corp that joined the team to loosen up in the boardroom. So so funny. Because we'd kill ourselves and it's like it's like a group of pirates and there's one guy that's like fire it on the weekends and it says in the boardroom swinging on a rope now and they love it and we're like I ate a parrot last night I totally. I totally feel. I thought things got easier when you get older. I didn't realize things get harder. Tell me what you mean by that. Well I didn't. I didn't realize like that like that. Guy's ignorance at the EMINEM board and the fact that he could be eminem board made him a hundred times. Better improviser because he'd never freaked out. He never worried people thought ever and so he just took care of himself and enjoyed it and had nothing to lose out. I would the older I got the more I had to lose. Every edition went into and scared money. You're playing what scared money for a poker term. Totally unnecessary as well. It's warm for people at ten thirty in the morning. That's insane. That's so great. Yeah that's a better way to look at it. That's a great way to look at it and when there is a financial stake to it a big job. I remember auditioning for commercials. And you're like this is not just my year. This is like the next three years of my life. You had to do some mental game like you're saying of. I'm just performing for these people at ten thirty morning. Just be there it takes. It gets stand up. It gets worse before it gets better than I didn't. In live shows became really really difficult to with just thinking. I did not belong Panic attacks and I had no I mean. I'm not surprised but like that too. Yeah you do what? I'd hide it on set to directors. I would tell them now that I was having a panic attack that day and they'd be like really. I didn't even show up on screen. I I would. I hated myself. I was like I don't belong here and it just got worse. Never got better interesting. I mean that's a lot of works right so I'm no expert. I've done acting for twenty three years and I think all I could tell. The person is just somehow figure out meditation or something to be calm before you go into a room because it's going to be fifteen. Yeah how very powerful people just staring at you going. What are you GONNA do? Yeah and so. It's a mental exercise. I used to hide in the script and just look at it. Never make eye contact now. It's after tons of work. It's so much better.

"Try some on it. Try some heat known Jew and eat some Catava baby. That's that's the that's the old pd recipe for feeling good. And I hope it works for you as well as it is for me. I cannot talk very well today. I don't know what it is. Luckily I had a great show with Brady Novak. I wasn't having whatever problem I'm having right now with my my old friend Brady and hope you enjoy this episode. As much as I did recording it again stay healthy. Stay SAFE AND GET INTO IT I. I'm not proud of this but life is too long and I was re watching Jerry Maguire. Look it's on Netflix. It's on Netflix. And I was watching it in there and the crisis of conscience that he was having in that movie in two thousand whatever. I mean that was like that was not even two thousand is in the nineties the ninety s and that was he was a sports agent but he was seeing his clients. Football clients getting massive concussions. Keep doing this. That's what makes him. WanNa like chain he then he just writes. A manifesto have too many clients. It's like actually. The problem is much bigger than we need to focus. More on individuals is like no you were in the hospital and a man couldn't remember his wife one in one out one is. I mean doesn't that make does that make sense like you have six clients when their career's over your own. No that is probably what they look at us now. I wonder I do mean us. Communicate when Jerry Maguire when she is not you had me at. Hello Yeah you eat me. It's also also a terrible thing to me you. You should go into a relationship complete. Yes that's right so we you go to give not to get CODA. Give why said that I not Robbins keeps getting in the in the hot water. Every time I see Tony Tony Robbins and the feet. It's not good. It's like He. He ate like she over. I love Tony Robbins. I regret that riff. Tony Do. This did a podcast. Hey what is what did he goes for. He ate. Thank you your cell. Can I open this now? You're so funny I love you. I think you're fantastic. I was watching. Stand up on Youtube and I'm just like Brady. Novak is the real deal man. Funny thank you that being said to feel welcome but I just think you're fucking incredible. I always have and Tony Robbins. Like it's always like he will say something about like. The women of Metoo are playing the victim. All right powerful. I I don't know the details. Don't put all homes on the scale. It is praising he's like you can't identify victim. You gotta get over it. But that's not well. Do you take the good like Polanski. Rapes women and he also makes good movies. Yes yeah I mean. It's a very complicated dude only robbins That's his whole thing right. Don't be a victim However I wouldn't call people putting Harvey Weinstein in jail victims. That's right that's very powerful. I agree moonves has to like these are people that were telling me. I should get out of the industry and now they're out of the industry. Is that true yes stat and wine told you to get out of the as and Harvey Weinstein told my manager at that time. That if she he said if you think he's a star you and he should leave the industry. This is one less move as best friend was my manager at that time to one when I'd go to Beverly Hills I'd still have panic attacks to up to last year and I wouldn't know why afraid that you might see him. No afraid because I'd walk right by the apartment where he said it to you. You set it to my manager who toge. Oh No. That's you know what I did new on Ener I it. Was you know what I mean like? Your panic was like but this is wary setup. That and I didn't really put it together and so what I did was I moved out of Hollywood and back to Chicago and started learning standup because was like I don't want to ever be told that again by powerful people and not have a backup plan. Well that is what gives us our power in a big way. Yeah is we can always go to that. I I did a thing. So long ago with Joaquin Phoenix. And he was sort of lamenting about the lifestyle of an actor and I took that as a as a thing like even him way sort of like. If it's not will I work again? Will I work on something? Good again like they have good. Yeah that's a good place to be. It is a good place to be but I think it is a good place but I think when you're eating you know Golden Grahams in your bathrobe and like three weeks goes by. I'm not saying it's a terrible life. I'm just saying the STANDUP can always go fuck this. I'm going. They'll they'll greet me with a with a lion's roar in Minneapolis. Well I don't know if you know this I don't know do lions live audience. Sound like one line so I don't know if you're aware of this but there is a guy that had a talk show like yours Called inside the actors studio who passed Yeah he passed and they as Lipton like people were yelling at. James looked their radios. She will yell at the radio with the screen often just the volume no TV just the volume on the TV mom and I- actors studio that is is that he other my mom. My mom and I my mom is basically came on my sophomore junior year so I watched it but people would come on there and he'd be like about the actor would you suggest actors and they're like It's pretty it's pretty stupid and I was pretty dumb and being an actor B. and actor and I would hear that as a seventeen year old and thank. I wasn't even acting at the time I thought. Oh they're just saying that because they don't want competition that's what people say about New Jersey. Let Him poop on us. We got deer eating in my driveway this morning and then twenty minutes into the city. They there's A. There's one guy told me that and I've been like that's what Jersey does they let. Everyone should on them. Oh yeah with the armpit of America of fucking planet on my I mean. It's so it's the first thing I say I go. I'm like why Brooklyn when New Jersey's closer it's exactly the Brooklyn has all the like. There's so many great songs however. What DO YOU SING IN JERSEY JERSEY? Take me in. No however you get there and you find out. Oh they weren't lying. There are parts of Jersey. That are there's parts of acting like they're just like Oh my God. This is what I signed up for. That's exactly right. I remember it was Brian Petrovka to fold in someone. We both knew. Yes and Kinda no I see him once every ten years. That's often but he was like I I would feel he said I would see Jeff Klinger on the Board of the lineup of Zanies and he was like and I felt bad him and I remember him saying that and I was like that's interesting because I'm trying so hard to be the name at Zanies pheasant run that weekend and he but he wasn't wrong. There's eating shit in any field. You just have to make sure it's the shit that you'd like to eat. It's the shit. That's the most appealing. Well it's yet Tom. Hanks is like. There's no good scripts they keep pitching choice story five. I don't want to start. Well I think I think for me. It's it's it's all always wanting to choose what's the shit that I'm like. Oh yeah that's my show. That's a better way to exactly that smells. That even tastes yeah. I'm GONNA have a little bit more but it I'm pretty Dang sure that's my crap and like that so so funny room and you find one. That's yours yeah and then your shit. That's the quote. So that's how you avoid now. My agents and managers of course have a different philosophy a different managers since two thousand good. Lord. I Beverly Dean is. Her name is what lay said everybody in Hollywood. Is that knows her like this. We did IMPROV. With thirty three people in her one bedroom apartment we stay. We slept in her. We slept she put us in our bedroom. Why they added Italian dinner. And then and then we Weinstein and Moves Vez. Sit Down and I do. Forty five minutes of Improv and panic attack common sweaty other. This is a true story other actors are going. Is it raining in here and I'm like Oh my God it's worse. Wait your manager. What's her name Bev. At the time Beverly Dean she gem Jesus Christ yes. That's right from the passion. Yes but if but she also she was a psychic so she also used to know raiders. I swear to God. She used to give the raiders head coach which was fun days. Appoint days at that time. Tom flory's Tom Floors. He she used to give hazy hazy. Winter's choose to give him psychic advice because she was a psychic. This is all true. You're so how sorta how did you get hooked up? Tell the whole story of this woman and it ends with doing Improv for lease we just spilled the beans on that one I know. Let's let's earn it. I loved it piqued our interest. So it's like a great movie that opens with. You wack doing here with rob for Harvey Weinstein and then it goes three months earlier. I'll see no I. That's not the order. I would want like my shit. Okay okay so well okay so I come. I'm in Chicago. One thousand nine hundred eight to doing improv. And I'm like I'm ready to take on how you started. Yeah Improv terrified to stand up. It's very scary. I don't know if you've ever done it it's terrifying. I'm not surprised because you have that. Stand up that I love. That is the improviser who crossed over. You know what I mean. The Standard of the cross over Improv is almost always terrible. But the improviser that crosses to stand up is almost always delightful. Yeah unless they're terrible right right right right and I have a hard time thing of San. That went the other way. And they're like wow who knew seinfeld. Give me a suggestion living room. Why do they call it a living room anew most my living in the hey jerry the rest of us? Kinda WANNA do some exact. I'm tired of doing actions. I need another suggestion. He just gets a new suggestion every three minutes. All right just blackout. When I'd Talia. Jelly beans does to invoke bean into the candy. How ABOUT JELLY BY? Oh got guests here tonight Larry Sanders. Come up okay. So it's two thousand and one I moved to La. Because I'm ready to take on the world you live to La in two thousand one. That I moved to Chicago. That feels a little personal. That's interesting because when I moved back you're we had crossover when you come back from New York interesting but you were there a little bit when I was there. We'll get there. Maybe so I come out here. And I'm come out. September first two thousand one and the new Improv Olympic on sunset. And Hollywood just open. And I'm like I'm going to go in there and.

"It was an umbrella. You a big celebratory kickoff. Dinner with with Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino. You know yeah and I was like Brad. I remember one night we're filming. It's literally Brad Pitt. In a white Tuxedo and Quentin Tarantino framing. The shot and I'm there there you know. I was like no matter what I ever do. That was young wanted the matter what I ever do. It will never be as exciting assists and I still feel that. Are you one of the undercover recover guys in a white Tuxedo. No no no one of the guys Antonio but aides say Omar is a good friend of mine is. That's the name of a director that Tarantino Tarintino Margarita. That's right yeah my eighth day. Oh I think Margarita was Brad I forgot all I know is your friend. Omar says the name of a director. Oh then that's the Spaghetti Getty Westerns of Italian Spaghetti and then that director is referenced in once upon time in Hollywood that's right and because he changes his name slightly and once upon a time I'm in Hollywood is based on once upon a time in the last. What was it like how? What kind of director was he brilliant? How did he direct well? It was very because there's different stuff. It was very reassuring because it was you know. He's the greatest director and it was it made sense to me. You know. It's funny when I watch a bad movie. I I think I could never do this when watch a great movie. I think I think I know how to make movies. You know what I mean. It's the greater. It is the more intuitive it feels so his style. It's like an iphone. I think somebody had to design and IPHONE. You give an iphone to a baby it starts right figuring it out right away and that was a lot of pain right so you know it was rehearsals. Associate was let's try this a lot. A medium amount little. Yeah a lot of people. Don't rehearse it all rehearsals and You know there's just so much ecstasy. In every decision he makes like he was ecstatic. He was ecstatic about the whole process. So choosing every costume choosing every gun the ceremony of now everyone. Everyone will choose the gun that they carry. You know. Just there was so much ceremony. And so much love and again the ecstasy shows in every it's ecstatic filmmaking so he's he's enthusiastic. CBS Tick I'm going further and saying ecstatic but of course he's enthusiastic yawned and it's very it's magic see. That's what I want to talk about is like make your. You've made nine movies. How do you maintain it like you? Said we should really own the fact that somebody that made fire Fox wants to do comedy so that in that I hear our effort trying to own and enjoy. Yeah how great it is that we we do but for me. It's an effort as well now always but every once in a while I have to be like fucking stop. Stop It. You have nothing to complain about this great thing in the world and Tarantino seems to have that for movies just like this is the greatest thing in the world. Yeah how you maintain that is is art form in itself like how you don't go like no I think it's cold but do surfers lose their love of surfing you know. I don't think so here. Surfers ones that it didn't belong there. No I think if you love something if you love music you always loved music on the office. I don't think she can't retire. Seasons of the opposite nine nine zero season I think I did. They did nine. I wasn't there less Z's eight you're there it never got. You never had to be like shut up. BJ like like stop complaining or in inside like this is the most fun you'll ever have like. You never know which part this is. The most fun you'll ever have so you were kind of I notice in the bloopers. You are often not laugh. I never laughed. I know I think I was not having a fun. That's what you need so there was an effort to enjoy joy dream job. Well they're always Tarantino just going pick God like oh well you should be over it if anybody should be over at nine movie in Guy. She'll be like I I don't know I mean look he s- grumpy sometimes too and I was in love with my job sometimes. Too Right at the office. I think everyone goes up and down out but I think in general your love also. I wasn't the boss the office part of it. So there's a lot to chafe out right so I think he's the boss and his movies right. Oh so that kind of salved. I think it's different. Do you remember a direction give you or a moment. Yes very last year in the scene with the phone call. Yeah that was awesome The very last shot of the movie you know when Brad Smile and nod God of the camera he was like you know he's like This might be my masterpiece smile and not and I was like wait. Do we. Smile and nod online or after it was a very valid question. BJ fucking house. I so you don't WanNa Mess EPA Tarintino movie. You also want to make Tarantino angry. Yeah you know that. Was the only stressful reverence. Did everybody seem on their game. Yeah we called that jetlag. Jed Direct and episode of crashing. And then the next episode would be someone else like a substitute teacher would call it. Judd leg Suddenly people were a little less. That's up to two jet lag jet lag. Yeah Ooh didn't realize you didn't know just live my life some one day. At a time. Someone realized nobody realized nobody. If I'm not realizing they only realize what I tell them. Yeah that's what it's like being the big cheese but yeah okay you got I don't either. He told you to smile and nod. was that a practical effect with the bleeding. Now wait wait. What was the digital? Ah Very little digital with him. Were you there when they shot the cutting into the guy's head because it bleeds very realistic. I don't think I was there. But he gets stuff right. Yeah yeah he does. It looks like they're doing it and it's very maybe that's how we did it now. We don't know how to do. We're just going to do it. Who wants to donate their forehead? Yeah I'll be the first to say he's very good filmmaker. How did you like once upon a time? Loved Esau Five Times I've seen it four times. Yeah well it's incredible you love it too. I also love it and it makes me sad because I don't think it's GonNa Win Awards for some reason because there's so much hullabaloo about what the joker what I'm I am the jokers GonNa win instead. I'm worried I'm pretty worried about it. you think Tarantino get best picture he might. I don't think the joker well I'm saying that here. Okay because somebody farted in the wind machine. I don't even know what I mean by that. Cool phrase I don't know what it means either right wind machine. Don't win machine this one who I think we know what it means at in like the joker who cares Dj. But you think it's okay. What did you see little women? Yeah I didn't like it You know why why interrupting chicken coup. Why you don't WanNa know why didn't like do you WanNa know I wanna make it clear that that it is a good movie? I just love the original so much who I couldn't watch nice a shuffling of my favorite movie. I like you know what I'm saying. Yeah you're such such a hard core of the original fucking soon as everybody else's shaming people who don't love it because they're not like you know artistic artistic and feminist etc.. But you're like I'm more that I didn't think anything was wrong with the original one. Yeah I also had an issue you with knowing that Lori because the biggest moment of that movie is low returning her down. Have you seen it And if you open with the knowledge that she becomes a writer and that law returns down it really ruined I think is the biggest part of the movie okay. The first time I saw Lori. Turn her down or turn down. Laurie I was. I couldn't believe it. It was like it was like I see dead people. I couldn't believe it. It's cool. No don't say one hundred percent one hundred percent. I don't say that I just make fun. The people say that okay because those moments are killing. which moments us I I think your listeners? There enjoy they get it but not I don't know people only listen to this podcast. Three left to see who all be with the guests appear. I've never been really why I'm enjoying it. That's that's that's what you mean. That's the new. Pete is actually enjoying it. What what do you mean by this is a new the guest will make me be different? Okay if you get that. Are you different. I'm I I feel like I'm shooting arrows. In an attempt to no I just mean. I'm being deliberate. I'm asking more questions. Okay there's more answering fart noises. Should I be no. This is the this is what is great. And I'm cool with it. I love it this how much better in a conversation if we had just gotten together for lunch this is so much better mistakes write. This gives an urgency. Yeah there's a bomb under the table and we just set you sound so good with Mike in your headphones I think when you have a Mike Yourself I have a mic. It's not planning anything on my extend. It's the practice. Stand up too so I feel comfortable feeling it I love and sometimes people who are over they just you know without even realizing they pick up the MIC. It just feels good to hold. Here's a good one. You dated Jamie Lee. Who played my girlfriend on the second season of crashing and beyond you dated Indy? And you wrote a show about date. Here's the Click Bait. Okay now. I'm curious what that was like for you. What was the second part of it? I you dated indicating yes and then you were working on her show and that show had moments of relationships and stuff. I'm wondering what that was like for you because I sorta the same thing. Oh it was. It was great. It I was creatively fun We were on very good and secure terms. Recreate things that you guys were going through. Well funny I thought I definitely clean notice a line or two. That had come up in our relationship on the show that I was kind of honored that stayed with her because she wrote it yes she brought it. Yeah you know there was an arc that we did. I just meant maybe these moments you were. You weren't writing you're non writing is in the room writing. Oh I tell in writing but I was consulting. Producer was in the room. I wasn't there every day. Okay they wrote a law that I was. I was worried. They'd episode and I hadn't participated in that particular are episode or Seen Right. You know I was worried that it sounded like I was surprised at Mindy. wrote a woman. No no no of course but I. I was not full-time in the room. I was there now and then so then it's even more interesting. You would then watch something. That's what I'm saying. Yeah I mean I think I remember that now and then touche represent the Novak. Well Oh I think simply in the fact that those moments stuck with her. Yeah Yeah I don't think it was. I mean I understand your question. No I don't it was bad Or necessarily good. I think simply as long as it isn't bad it is good in the. Oh Wow that really like is permanent with you. Yeah that memory that that even that awkwardness that you know That we did an ARC. That was kind of fun in which we played. We played a little against our relationship in that we were dating and I was in love with separate best friend. It was kind of fun that was sort of inspired by real. It was no it was. I mean it was sort of a play on what our relationship had been a little bit in that we we were not like best friends. But why aren't they they together their XS or anything like that which is dynamic. It's more that I had that dynamic with someone else and it was hard to date her which was kind of fun. I don't. I think we plan to consciously but we kind of knew. Oh that's cool. Yeah I like when when life can bleed into what we're doing. What about God? I was in ninety minutes. You'd better uh what about God. Bj I believe in God you do The Jewish one. I only mention that because you said You keep kosher..

I really think that's the gift one thing. It's also a person that I any day where I didn't do anything I feel. I can't justify often in bed at night. I'm like all all right and I have a day and it lists all the things I did and I'm like okay all right. That's a valid Monday. So you know it's not but it's also why you've achieved you've achieved more than I have because you have it worse than I haven't I haven't worse than you have. I'm saying have it. If it's a bad thing then you have it worse. If it's a good thing you have better than I do. What I'm saying is if I have an idea what I like to do and this is in madman well Ramdas? Is this why you have him over your on your wall so that for exactly this kind of I look at him. He's the arbiter you win on this one. What do you mean? If we're like let's ask Robin Dos. Which one's better to have to justify your existence their list of accomplishments or to just be in the moment comet he would like? I'm with Pete on this. I feel like I'm breaking vote. He'd be a rascal and he'd know that I'd want him to vote for me and to teach me a lesson he'd be like you're both wrong uh-huh okay that's cool something fun. Because he was funny he he wouldn't he wouldn't just because I didn't know that I I was talking to him about being special in and he was like I was like so. Let's just be special in your. And he was like Tisco. You knew him yeah we. I didn't know that not not channeling when you did you guys. He was talking about. Yeah wow that's comes up on almost every podcast before that picture was up at pictures been up for. I don't know six months people often think it's Alan alda although that would also make sense. Yeah my inspiration. Yeah he is a new marriage story he was he was great. The whole cast was perfectly cast and and that comic relief is so necessary in that. There's a lot comic relief I know but he knew what he knew what he was doing. Oh yeah being like. Let's have one of the funniest people ever be the bumbling lawyer because you're gonNA need it and even really Oda I thought was fun. Oh there's a lot in that guy up with and the line over here. The party's Japanese. These are making a Tequila. That's pretty interesting. I loved that line of. There's all kinds of lines like that. Okay so Valentine walking. Yeah this morning and just because we're interested in the creative process says you're talking about writing things down. She's she looked in an apartment building and she said this is the kind of apartment building that if you look at it online only shows the amenities that was like that is the kind of apartment. Oh my gosh so fucking funny and I was like I said vow. Not that. She's not my student. I'm just like that is a great rate opening line or a downed I Greta Gerwig if Francis Hossa's that Noah Baumbach knows and and Greta Gerwig knows you include that it's such a hundred percent tallying observations. He wrote screenplays and you carry notebook. That's something you'd read in the notebook. That would make the script. And that's what I told her to do. I don't know if she did and maybe it does. She also told the story about going to see the musical cats and her friend who had never seen cats accidentally dressed like Mr Mustafa leads knows like bats hilarious. That's like it's it's not like you wouldn't hang a whole scene on it but I like down beat's where someone is just saying and she just exactly like Mr Mesaba and then the scene starts those are precious to fine. You know in the office. We had a separate Cold open sort of process where it just sort of like all right. Let's write some cope. We were we were there. We didn't have anything to do. You could put them. I'm in any episode and I feel like it'd be fun to have splinter room sometimes just wrote non sequiturs to open a scene. That'd be so fun. I am fascinated with them and when I like a pie in creede lines. Sometimes we do that very very non sequitur that is a specific art vallon. I watched the best of creed last night too and I was like when he talks about doing a casual cartwheel. Tell me wrote that. I did not so fucking funny. It's so specific. What a fun thing to discover the talent of these people all that maybe weren't necessarily going to be on the show but then I I don't think there's anything more fun than going Phyllis and then you start writing four FELLAS I? Yeah I know you know this. This is really great. It was great so what I was saying was when I have an idea. It's in madman. They say if you WANNA come up with a great idea think about it really hard and then put it out of your mind and he goes like two days later. It'll come to you and I really believe in that I think madman is about making TV at least one level that makes sense. And that's a big draper. Says that to someone or something. He does. Yeah he goes. I tell you come up with it so I'll think about something. I'll read something that I'm going to base something or whatever ever and then like I don't like getting up in the morning but it'll wake me up and that is the gift that is that like it. It'll be unpleasant. I actually talk with it. My brain will be like He. He should get up and write this down..

"Jacqueline will never do was would never do anything. You wouldn't know right. The USA mad with cash is my folder of money. It was really exciting. It was a lot of ones but but it was in a folder. Well it has to be the right thing to maybe something will come to you at some point and it'll be the right thing for you to to. Oh I would love to like no I. Yeah Yeah but we've I'm trying to think when we work on things like I just my feeling was at this this point. It's kind of like if I were you know making TV show or something be kind of stressful to not be able to like fresh to not be able complain at night in bed in the same way we did that. We worked on a show. Natasha's show that she created Ricky Lyneham. She was like it was called another period. A high octane. It was definitely my octane. It was packed. Full packs of comedy and highbrow. It wasn't all of those things but we worked together and that was a thing. I think that you are concerned with was the rule that when the because we worked in a mansion and we filmed it in the middle beautiful mansion but once we were on all day together and then we said once we cross the Mantel told. We don't talk about work and we would go home and eight. PM Yeah So. It's yeah I only have a couple of hours. We'd be in bed together. One in the morning I are. She would be like complain about one per minute burst but others. I feel like that great. Of course one of the great joys complain about others later in bed but but but no but we we. Yeah and I would love to be behind the camera like you as my muse on film is exciting to me like I feel you need to be on film like I just right now because I feel like that too. It's like this whole time. You need to be on film but we I feel like I didn't I feel like I know I was going to long on it but I feel like I need to wrap up why I said back the fuck off so in my mind. You know I go up to the thing that handle he's shaking and I'm watching the there's two people behind the teller. Their focus is going to him because he is shaking and it to me doesn't realize since you're the threat you're definitely the right. Looks like to me like the anger. Looks like if you don't know 'cause he's trying to control it so it's very it. Looks like he might be having some kind of an old term fit long. They are locked behind bulletproof. Glad I would say though a bank and a casino will probably the two worst places to throw a rage probably in in America in the world world gun somewhere on the premise outta bank. Yeah definitely are the security guys. I think casinos the worst and I think bank. Yeah second worst so so oh you. So they're looking at him so I'm realizing he's a distraction right so I turned to him. And it's kind of this like we've been through this before in the sense of like when when there's things things that go down like this with customer service or whatever. It is or at the Max door when Chris feels that the genius is being patronizing or genius issues. But he's really hasn't changed as the only success has been leave. The store like one time with his MAC like with this book or whatever ever it was like leave the store and like I got it done like you know what I mean like. He went to the food court and it was like came out with his computer fixed and he was like how how. And where you. What were you eating? I like this angry man. Just got coffee just an angry man with a couple of like the blackhawks sadly looking at his coffee with every SIP MIC stall role in a Mac book air and he couldn't resist like you were delighted and it was like how and it's just like I do stay calm and I do think Chris. Chris gets mad at like apple in general at kind of the genius. And it's I mean. Sometimes they are accurate company. I mean every week. There's a new story story about how they're figuring out how to never pay taxes and make us pay more to get things I mean obviously and we can talk show so to me. It was a scenario of me going like we've done this before we know it's better when you back off like an particular one thing I've said is when my business business. You know like like you have to let me handle it because it's no I'm on your side honestly like when you see when you had a conversation before and it's it's clear that he should back off like I'm on your side that you chose the language back the fuck off of all language choices that was the most compassionate Senate from all the different choices to not say. Hey Chris we've been through this before maybe just to scream. Only we matt where I think. I would've vibrated for it was on the third. Okay in my mind was shaking over here in my right okay. A and and it's like you can't go with please. You know we know this and then and then many appears again. I'm going to laugh and I'm there. And then he came back and then came back and shaking again and he. He's I know he's about to take off before because I know what they've just said I can feel him shaking and so then I turned to him. And that's when I was back the fuck off and to me the fuck was like to me. It was like you know. I don't have kids but in the vein of like you know I was giving you 'cause I was scared okay. Like like the whatever like the the mother and the cub okay like. He's got the coven this because I was trying to get him out like that's what happened. I'm feeling Chris so hard right now. Like I yell at you. Next time you thought it was demeaning I think it was undeniably demeaning genius here here that genus changes. This is this is really I mean unless they were really into. It wouldn't hurt originally back to chase teller setback. No you did. They must have heard it. Because you said it right in front well you kept circling like I. Yeah well I I admit my wrongdoing along with my feelings to be acknowledged every fight on my side. Lied is always. My feelings. Aren't being because I'm very sensitive and Jacqueline's the only person I'm sensitive really with right you know and the chase Taylor and the MAC. Yeah all the genius. Those people get the yet sensitive with everybody. I guess because that's the end. No but that's a different kind of sensitive like anger anger for a man generally for me anyway is. That is the one way that I will crack machine of control for the public. But I've got a different. I got got like the full array of the personal spectrum that I for my partner. Yes yeah exactly and you want some of that tender tender acknowledgment. Yeah but I'm handling what it feels like an emergency to me and so it's like I gotta deal with them. I'm upset about the money thing for me and he keeps circling back when in my mind. It's like in my mind I've asked asked you twice to just step aside and your back and I also think sometimes when I've anger over here you know it's like it's confusing using it. There's a lot happening. And so then it turns into anger language which is just like me throwing swears in that earns in into the direct address to him. Even though I'm not feeling like angry him I'm feeling like it's like A. It'd be like if I moved him. Aside with like an I grabbed him by the arms and moved him and it was like my claws dug in but it was because I was just trying to move him really quick. But how is the situation. Yeah two of you to be partners. She's more she's is more equipped to handle the situation doesn't have she doesn't have like testosterone. She doesn't have rage. You know so it's like in that situation. I do get where she's coming coming from because she's like I'm going to take care of this. Wants to be in a MAC store with best not the fundamental issue on the line with back the fuck back the fuck up where it was and I would also say that Chris would maybe let me know if I'm putting words in your mouth just like the empathy to be a little bit more high-octane offer high-octane is one of the things like morning the morning. Dj Lang. Yes I mean because it comes from action movies right a lot of. Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah yeah something like that came thriller but the reason we I. I just relate to this fight so because this is always always the dynamic for me. I think that I can solve things by host forcing my anger on the fight with the lift driver when I was pregnant. Who wouldn't give us our bags and I was like if you just go and denied? I'll get our bags. Need to go inside. Get the fuck at that point. I'm like it's not about the bag anymore. It's about teaching this lift guy unless about says it's a big issue. Yeah I WANNA teach everybody what's right and nobody's I've never thought any no one's a pupil out if all they all walked away thinking I was fucking nuts and and I and I knew in the in the chase bank. I wasn't helping and you're trying his hardest all. That's why I felt so bad. Because he was really trying trying and all I wanted was a sorry I walked it back which which is one of my favorite things to do. Okay which is I'm he. He doesn't to me. This is where the fight begins okay. I wasn't fighting with back. The fuck off that was an accidental like curse embedded in me trying to handle. The situation isn't much better actually worse back off any Yeah I never released. It was very clear you're you are and you are. You're you're couching everything in the cerebral you look about the phone as an interlock Israel torch and you're like just say fucking just be like my bed no and I. I was expecting soon as she came over those chairs to be like. I'm sorry you thought it was just like. Oh You mad at me and we just may number one so what happens. Is I do something or I feel mad at you for something I express it. You react wait. I'm always okay with it when you say you're mad at me about something. I'm always I always. I'm I'm usually wrong about most things. I understand that I it just and I when I when I lash out or whatever. I'm I'm in the wrong. There's even if I feel like I'm in the right eight. I'm in the wrong I know but I want all I want is like yeah. I shouldn't have said that absorb. Here's the apologizing and this is ugly I know this right but I also believe it. which is he wants? Just an apology. A simple apology policy. But I'm like no you're wrong for being hurt and I want to tell you why because if I apologize it's like I've locked in I've I've Legitimized you're hurt again. which I'm like no no? I can unhurt you. If I just explain you know what I mean I'll give politics it's almost. I'm sorry you like I'm sorry that my perfectly right actions like caused a feeling you but but what happens I feel like is yes so then I'm like are you at me. I'm I'm sorry. Use that language. But then I feel like I'm the villain when he started it via I'm quickly the villain. Here's here's what I do. We should take some calls. I'm so fascinated by this. I feel like we're about to ruin your relationship. There's this idea in A. Yeah the I have carried with me since I left Abe. I left behind a long time ago but I still carry a lot of the principal and this one I I am so where I live by this one a lot. which is there's this phrase in the in? The book said leaving aside the wrongdoings of others. We tried to ask ourselves. How had I been at fault? That is the the foundation principal for all of my leaving aside. The wrongdoings of others we asked ourselves how was at fault. So that is that's my legs. My my North Star when it comes to analysing what were the first of all. I need to leave the house physically. All you need to go away and then I think all night it takes me a while for my ego to like to to down a bit and then and I think what did I do. That has absolutely nothing to do with what the other person did. And then that's what I that's what I find the..

Well she's from where Hillary Clinton lives. That is exactly it feels right. I thought I had a absolute street. Like lake no flourishes South Bronx I thought it was. I mean you ever. I thought I was simply you know right down the line of nothing all I can say is the last six times I've I've seen you other than your show which we're going to talk about the second. Have Been in the lobby of a high-end Yoga Studio. I was on my way to work. I'm not I'm just saying we're not because of yoga. Chris where are you from. Staten Island now. There we go. We're going to take a ferry to get places when you were either. Take a ferry to go to school. Yeah the most. Would you love San Island now hate it. It's fucking hell hole is I mean I never lived there adult like on purpose. Oh man my whole family moved to Staten Island Island. They were all in Brooklyn they all moved to Staten Island and then they they'd always be like come visit and I'm like no I mean once there's a boat involved I'm out like yeah that's like all these people oh from Brooklyn and wanted to move to New Jersey and they just didn't make it stopped on that island and they were like okay. I guess this is close enough. And then they all talk about moving to Florida Florida or New Jersey. Yeah I don't I don't like the cops flew to write the cops living city. I think to be a cop or Pfeiffer so a lot of those guys if you're not it's sort of funny you gotta you gotTa Westchester. New York's can't live in Westchester live in the city. The least charming place to take a boat to the world when you have to take a boat where it's like you're going you know of in my experience. I've been very lucky somewhere. Nice yes I want to go. Serve to dig Staten Island. You know he's very have no emotional attachment to I. I went there once when I lived in New York to meet a photographer when I had opportunity to probably do you. Have someone like having that skill Gal right. How about those early comedy early days of comedy managers that were just a manager because they said they were first manager was definitely on his apartment? Ah In that zone. Yeah I mean if you power just if you're listening right now and you want to start manipulating and dominating human beings in the entertainment industry moved to any city. Save Your Comedy Manager Make Business Cards. You'll have clients instantly just bend over backwards for you and you can do anything you want with them in general and the I mean I I mean in the industry I feel like show up and say her producer of comedy things right yes anything and wine why not a show like established anything that involves comedians and then there you are the business cards usually a tip off. They usually use a font that tells you get out of. Don't trust this person. We were talking about this the other day because we were looking at preschools for our kids and the vibe of the heads of preschool is the exact same vibe of like mega maniacal comedy club Booker. Guy No comedy club Booker. In small towns like a king of tiny little in kingdom like the weird like you follow my rules. You know working. He is the only comedy castle that you perform that. They're all that way not. I'm not talking about the only preschool. That accepted us. Of course not every all the places So sorry wait so you guys are a couple. Yeah you can keep asking. No no I I just got interested. it's not that interesting. It's pathetic. Nobody sounds like it. Sounds like I imagine they take themselves very seriously. And you're in there and like it feels insane right. It's insane. Jokes like not really got bombing. She's bombed with a lot of their greatest preschools the Los Angeles area. Here's a here's a fun fact. The East Los Angeles pre schools have a lower vaccination rate than south Sudan and just read an article that said that because they're healthy they don't they don't need not getting measles they're also not down to people in Sudan down or not like a Toronto turn down vaccine. They're probably like yes. Please thank you for the rest for this but here what if you could send your vaccine to the Sudan if you're refusing it that's pretty cool. Yeah I actually really liked that idea. And let's see how they do it later and then Sudan flourishes you saw San Angeles waste away rate. Is that like it's low is like a pandemic coming rate any. They don't have kids they don't care about this now the anti vaccines I find fascinated. Okay Jacqueline I saw your show the other day. I have been unable to stop thinking. I WANNA and do a plug in other words about it because you're another run of it coming up in New York at the Lucille Hotel. Yes December fourteen through January twenty six. I I loved it and let me tell you what I loved about my whole comedy career. I've been calling myself highbrow lowbrow and that was the further. It's the the most highbrow. But it's the furthest iteration of the Highbrow lowbrow concept and comedy like if you haven't seen it in your in New York or even if you're in some exactly do you start there maybe if you're stuck in taking the ferry jump on the ferry but it's it's such a what I liked about it. We'll move along it. It say a tiny microscopic way into macro and And and it it it the whole shows about blow jobs. I mean there's no other there's no kind unrooted way to say it but the But it goes into such a place of of of a like such an eagle eye view of sort of everything that a young woman goes through through that one particular act that it really it kind of ruined them for me. Oh Oh my God yeah. I haven't had one since. That's not true motion but it was break. So if you're listening you're listening you should go see it. If you're in the New York area you guys are a couple. Chris also a talented comedian as well as a comedian. And what can I ask. I'm sure you've been asked this before but does like being the partner of a person who's show is about sex and such a specific sex and sexual people to people like go like is it is it you got that. I'm not even no one's really asked me about that. Is it an annoying question. No it's not it's I mean I'm I am what I'm always happy to talk about Jacqueline because she's the one who has success when people ask me how I'm doing I just say well Jacquelyn shows doing and I point to the the magazine and newspaper. You jump on the ferry headlining clubs. I mean he he likes to play it up. I mean you know put. She's she's doing fantastic. And I and I'm I'm not really in the show except for the the references to her boyfriend. The other everything else is kind of pre me. Yeah Yeah I like the blowjobs about the blowjobs gave him. I would be fine with that. I have no problem. No but it's all sort of they're all kind of its abstract extract. Sort of you know. I can't overstate high school and college. I can't overstate how sophisticated a show. This is if you're listening and you immediately. That doesn't sound like that's for me. If you're listening to my podcast probably off book a little blow jobs but it's it's tough take both. Yeah I'll take either side I feel like But I know but sorry to interrupt you to like really sort of stew in the compliment. But I'm so happy that you took from it because it's exactly like the thing for me. The highbrow lowbrow. Will you have a line in there where you're like you're like this is something like this. This is not a cautionary tale. God forbid because at the end of the day I'm just a nightclub act L. Knight something like that. That was the other thing that I like about the show. A- As a comedy guy like a real like like my focus has always been on. What's funny how kind of theatrical and sophisticated it is? And it's it's even so you know it's even Highfalutin at certain points to where it was very high octane comedy like. It was packed packed in with Joe. Joe This is this is what you are. Yeah that is such a good quote high-octane calm those ever said anything like that but I don't think that that lately about Jacqueline Novak involved glowing quotes. Nobody mentioned the octane.
