Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Honored At The Supreme Court
"To imagine that something can be different and suggesting that Ruth Bader Ginsburg achieved that. Speaking to a rather small group of friends and family and the socially distant times in the Great Hall of the United States. Supreme Court hears Chief Justice John Roberts, Jane Jim, the entire Ginsberg family. On behalf of all the justices, spouses of the justices. The entire Supreme Court family. I offer our help heartfelt condolences. The loss of Ruth Bader Ginsburg. That loss is widely shared. We know that it falls most heavily on the family. Justice Ginsburg's life was one of the many versions of the American dream. Her father was an immigrant from Odessa. Mother was born four months after her family arrived from Poland. Mother later worked as a bookkeeper in Brooklyn. Ruth used to ask What is the difference between a bookkeeper in Brooklyn and a Supreme Court justice? Her answer one generation. It has been said that Ruth wanted to be an opera virtuoso. It became a rock star instead. But she chose along. Subjected to discrimination in law school and the job market because she was a woman, Ruth would grow to become the leading advocate fighting such discrimination in court. She was not an opera star, but she found her stage right behind me in our courtroom. There. She won famous victories that helped move our nation closer. Equal justice under law. To the extent that women are now a majority in law school's not simply a handful. Later she became a star on the bench. She sat for 27 years. For 183 majority concurring and descending opinions. Will steer the court for decades. They are written with the unaffected grace of precision. A voice in court and in our conference room was soft. When she spoke, people listened. Among the words that best describe Ruth. Tough, brave fighter a winner but also fought for Careful.
Interview with Elizabeth Debecki
"The biggie on her tended co-star Kenneth Brannagh. While I've also been a huge fan of cans for many years I've seen him. Obviously in film intelligent but I've also seen him on stage lot and I always had this enormous respect cannon thought he was. sort of `can-do everything I was. So we'll come running do everything. He can write direct APP saying dance. It was sort of it's a bit much actually he should leave some talent for other people but working with him. He just has this ability to put you at ease. He's so kind actually and very. very, very generous as the same. But has an ability to sort of keep the energy around the scene onset. Very focused but very alive. And I actually think it's partly to do with his sense of humor which is. Pretty, spectacular I I actually. Once. Waiting to shoot part of the cost sequence, which is so high octane and the emotional car in between two characters in that moment of the film is so dark and it's so there's so much violence in the air in that moment. And we were sitting waiting to shoot a part of that scene and he made me laugh so hard that I actually split the same amount address, and so I could say that Cameron is genuinely side-splitting if you will which he would enjoy. But now he's a joy. The film has scope. The scope of the film what Chris wanted to do? With the movie was sort of create. Of VOSS NECE and an expanse and a sense of. Because the entire world is at stake. In the protagonists mission, we really had to branch out across the Globe and put all those places on camera and because of the way that Chris Works and hate him wanting to always capture the authentic article whatever that is whether it's the actual, the actual country, the actual boat, the actual human. So there's there was a sense of of of when I entered the film knowing that we would just going to kind of. Me Personally and as an artist just have my kind of horizons massively expanded, which was what the experience of shooting was. As I think credit to our crew really because the crew that made this film would definitely. I'm exterior extrordinary human beings, but they worked so hard and we would sort of finish shooting in a country and pack up at nine PM. In the next day, we would all be on this plane and we would travel somewhere else and we would start shooting twenty four hours later and I think the kind of rigor of that. But also the fact that I think really really bonded US travelling that much definitely as cost it really did Sometimes Jane I would sort of meet up in different cities Buran and we would Have like a cup of coffee and Estonian and three days later, we would be having lunch in Italy, and so it was so kind of surreal and bizarre and. A A massive privilege to especially because of. Where we are in twenty twenty when I think back to just being able to travel out in the world and capture that people. But now sort of fantastic we did really because when people see the film, they can be in all those places. She this and I max the only way to go in my book. I Max Cameras. Put simply really make the experience larger than life, but it's also the quality of the film and I think the way that Hoy towel cinematographer shoots and he is really such genius. It just immerses the audience into. The cinematic experience, but I think watching something on amax inevitably. It hits you in a different way. Literally, you access the film in a different way because. It's almost visceral sort of a bodily experience when something is that that huge captured with the specificity of those cameras that I think. I don't think it's comparable really to anything that people will have same before Janet is now playing the near you.
Is Mitch McConnell Rigging The Game?
"Other news, there's the other branch of Congress or the other house. Of Congress. The Senate and everyone knows their Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is unshakable and ruthless, and he's going to maximize his power however cam, but it is also the case the death of Justice Ruth Bader GINSBURG has taken us to uncharted territory. There are very real political pressures that are going to affect how the next several months play out. Mitch McConnell does not care about being charged with the Crisi but the raw politics of this moment themselves are not uncomplicated. As it was with the affordable care act remember Mitch McConnell had a lot of bravado about that and he failed famously and humiliatingly to replace the law. Here's mayor discuss across pressures. He faces longtime McConnell Allah Gist Jane Mayer Chief of Washington correspondent New Yorker wrote an incredibly insightful profile McConnell back in April this weekend row quote from Mitch McConnell keeping a Senate. Majority matters more than the Supreme Court. Jamie. It's great to have. Let's start with that because it seems to me there's two imperatives here. Everyone says about McConnell the two things he cares about is keeping the Senate majority and being Senate majority leader. Judges the Federal Bench, and there is a way to interpret the politics of the moment that there's a little bit attention between those two imperatives. How do you see it? Well, I mean there is I mean he wants to get obvious wants to hold the majority wants to stay being majority leader. And, this is going to be the crowning moment of his career to have yet one more justice on Supreme Court here we can get him through and he's promised trump of course that he's going to have a vote on this, and so how do you do this the problem? The problem for McConnell is it's unclear if he can keep the majority in the Senate. It's a dicey election year for him. There are a number of racist. They're very close and he doesn't want to do anything that's going to hurt the endangered members of his caucus. So he's got to try to juggle the schedule in some way that doesn't put those members on the spot in a way that will hurt them. So he's the first thing he's going to do an, and surely his done is canvas. Those members find out exactly how they feel about how this this process would affect their races. And then, and then way that in terms of whether it be better have a vote before or after the election. So. It's it's. It's. It's it's tricky but he is nothing if not clever about things like this this is he he? Very early on in his career, he ran for office from a district where he hadn't been resident in residence long enough and he vowed after that, he would never again ignore the rules, and since then he's become kind of a master of the rules, the more arcane the better. And he just he loves talking to the parliamentarian in the Senate and figuring out sort of the the most devious ways to get what he wants. The most sort of obvious pressure here. Just talking about this and I think it's pretty interesting. There's a bunch of folks who are up. In who are imperilled where it's not clear That going ahead with this would be helpful them. We have a bunch of pulling out today showing majority of people oppose it. Those numbers will probably change as they converge towards the polarization and everything else. But like Cory Gardner is down in all the polls and Colorado, he's in a state that Democrats have carried. Now a bunch and plan to carry again Martha. mcsally sally is down a to mark Kelly. You know they're on the sort of aggressor side here in terms of public opinion. It does seem like they've kind of don't care. It doesn't seem like there's a jump together mentality here in terms of getting them to come out whether it was him or not a publicly for those. Well I think. He's GonNa. Be Looking at McConnell will look at each of these races and I think you can almost imagine that he's written off. Gardner in. Colorado, and makes out the in Arizona. So he's not going to change his plan just for them unless he thinks it's going to save them and you'd probably thinks it won't save them and he's already given collins kind of buy in Maine. So it gets you down to the racist that are really going to matter in this are probably it's it's probably Tillis in North Carolina, Joni Ernst in Iowa, and Danes in in Montana, and if McConnell feels that those three or not endangered by going head, he may just gun it. You know and and try try to get I think though that in addition to just thinking about each of these races and how it affects each of the races, there's something else. He's probably got to think about, which is the overall look of this thing if if it appears to the American public that he is one set of rules for Democrats and there's another set of rules he's got for Republicans here, one Senate rules for America and another set of rules for whoever trump nominates at this point, it looks like he's reading the game it looks corrupt. It looks like a naked power, grab an and it's ugly and that could actually create a backlash I think that both he and trump have to think about. It it might really bother a lot of people in this country to think that that it's it's just too corrupt game in Washington. Yeah, I. think that's a correct reading of both where the polls are and the political risks they run and I think it's notable that McConnell has committed to vote but not win and I thought. This was also notable. He wrote this dear colleague later re basically says I don't say anything don't lock yourself into position. Let it give it give us time to work over the coming days. We're GONNA come under tremendous pressure from the press to announce how he will handle the coming nomination for those who are unsure how to answer for those inclined to oppose giving nominee a vote I urge you all to keep your powder dry Dombrowski and collins. Have not heeded that but Mitt Romney said declined today saying anything I know Pat Toomey in Pennsylvania I fully expect will support moving forward. But that that to me, it was interesting because the timing here and the sort of needle to thread is not nothing I think we'll try to do it and the odds are in their favor they will. But because of exactly what you and unseeded from the political standpoint, it's not clear that this is help for them politically in the short term. I think it may not be I. Mean I think also it's going to energize the base on both sides here for and the thing is that when it comes to the energizing the base, the base that needs more energizing really is probably on the Democratic side and you've already seen it happen I, mean look at the amount of money that act Lou raise you know practically overnight a hundred, million dollars two, hundred and sixty. Now it's one hundred and sixty million dollars. Shipping shocking about money. Shocking money an and I think the other thing that it might do is from was doing some reporting two days. I think it may really energize kids younger voters because. You know they were kind of holding their nose, a lot of them about Joe Biden it wasn't an exciting. It didn't seem you now like there was that much reason to do it. Now there's a reason that a lot of young people are GONNA see they're gonNA look they're gonNa see Roe v Wade is in the balance they're going to see a four Bul healthcare act and possibly anything to do with insurance for preexisting conditions and they're looking at the future this is going to. Their. Lives for the this is a this is a decision that has tremendous implications for everybody in the country and it's GonNa be clear and so I, you know it may turn you know help turn out. The Democrats who were young. Six three Roberts court climate. Regulation jurisprudence. A. Favorable to the kinds of solutions. That are necessary. Do you think? Ultimately McConnell himself is up and I don't think he's. He's personally a lot of trouble against say, McGrath at least the pulling now but there are also just a bunch of seats that weren't supposed to be in play that really do seem like they are. There's A Texas poll that has cornyn barely up. There's a Mississippi poll out today that has. Chrissy Hyde Smith a just a few points on Mike espey. There's the Iwa Joni Ernst race I mean it's wild how wide the sort of battlefield has gotten for him to try to hold this thing together. It's it's really volatile and and and the thing is it. What it does is it puts the Republicans on the spot about they've been doing kind of a split that's broader and broader that gotta keep the trump face and and but that's not enough for in many places to get reelected, and so they've got to do is add in. The moderates the you know suburban women particularly and got a candidate here who for a nominee for the supreme court that is truly the choice of the evangelical part of the trump ace it by very much alienate moderate women in the suburbs and in other places especially over things like abortion where sixty two percent of the people in this country saver. Abortion. As keeping it legal and don't WanNa go backwards. So it's it's. It's I think it's a it's it's a it's a it's a risky thing for some ways. You people think it's all into such a gift. Not, necessarily think that's right. Read on the situation Jane Mayer thanks as always great reporting and inside appreciate it. Great to be with you.

Portman;s Statement on Supreme Court Vacancy
"Ohio Senator Rob Portman on Saturday night released a statement that said he looks forward to seeing who President Trump plans to nominee Eight and thoroughly assessing his or her qualifications for the important role of replacing you've a Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. His statement observed that in the more than two dozen vacancies of the U. S Supreme Court during a presidential election year over U S history, the sitting president made a nomination every time Mary Jane Trap, a justice on the Ohio Court of Appeals told three news in Cleveland.

College Campuses Opened for Business, Now Scores of Students Have Covid-19
"This is on point Jane Clayson. We're talking with student newspaper editors about what college life is like in a pandemic and how the choices their schools have made are impacting students. My guest this hour Andy Thomason senior editor at the chronicle for Higher Education Andy. We were talking about the political sort of faultlines at play even in higher ed right now, this sort of red state blue state colleges in. Ryan States by Republicans are more likely to offer in person courses. It appears blue states or more online has that held steady throughout the opening here. It has but it's gotten more complex as states have to wrestle with. You know the consequences of reopening the public health numbers on campus and that sort of thing for instance, one of the first campuses to reopen the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill had faced a mandate from the system to reopen but just I think about a week Yep after they had started classes, they were forced to shut down in effectively evacuate campuses. So the public health realities are definitely altering some of. That decision making and many colleges and universities are are not messing around they're cracking down on these large gatherings large parties at northeastern here in Boston they expelled students that gathered in a room together and there was no refund on the thirty six thousand dollars tuition Ohio state issued two, hundred, twenty, eight suspensions to students attended parties a give us some other examples of the disciplinary measures that colleges are taking now. Well, much of that action has actually been predominantly rhetorical sort of warning students saying this semester if it has to end early, it's on you. It's not on us. That's the message from administrators on many campuses there have been lots of suspensions at lots of campuses It actually helps sort of spur something of a backlash among others in the higher education community saying the students didn't make the decision to reopen it was the administrators and are you going To blame students for being students when they didn't really have a hand in these plans, some observers called it hypocritical well, right and and you know I've heard both sides, is it too much to ask college students to give up so much of their college experience and on the other hand you know be responsible put a mask socially distance. I mean there are two sides to this as there are more broadly speaking in the cultural conversation as a whole. That's absolutely true and yes, you can see both sides to it, and of course, in a pandemic, we all have to behave responsibly behaviors good public health citizens, but you have to realize and recognize this occurring in the larger context of institutions that have their own institutional priorities, financial, political, and cultural, and in some cases at least students have. Found themselves in the center of that and and facing some of the consequences.

Why Do Dogs Have Tails?
"I'm Jane Lindholm On this podcast, you ask the questions and it's our job to find interesting people to answer them. In this episode, we're talking all about dogs. Now, if you WANNA learn about cats check out our companion episode that episode includes some amazing facts about how cats communicate with humans in a special language they make up with their own individual human family. But in this episode, we're going to stick to barks instead of meows. Lots of your dog questions had a common theme you to know about some of the ways that dogs are different from humans. Jessica Heckman is a veterinarian and a dog researcher and she has a blog called the dog Zombie because she's obsessed with dog brains studying them not eating them anyway I. Guess You could say she's a dog scientists and she's here to answer your questions. Our first one comes from Margot who is five and lives in Amherst Massachusetts. Why did Adopt Tales That's a great question Margot whenever someone asked a question about why does one type of animal look one way and is set up one way and why is another type of animal built a different way the way I like to think about it is talking about that difference why? Why what we use it for? So dogs ancestors, wolves, ancient wolves had to run to catch their dinner and tales helps them balanced when they ran so that was they had them back. Then and dogs some dogs still do have to run as part of their job, right? Like she herding dogs have to do a fair amount of running but dogs also use their tails to communicate. So that's another good reason they have tails. They don't use noises quite as much to communicate as humans do but they use body language a lot more than humans do. So with dogs a tale, it's really high means I'm confident a tale that's held low means I'm. Nervous a tale that's really clamped rate underneath there but means please don't smell my but right now and also I'm really scared and then a wagging tail something all really familiar with because it can mean that the dog is happy but also you can see it in angry dogs I would just caution you to be really careful when you see a wagging tail overall, we try to look at the whole dog, not just the tail to interpret body language but the tail. Is definitely a very important part of the dogs tools for speaking why might dog wag its tail when it's happy or when it's mad? Why would drag tail for both possibilities I think from the dogs perception that they might be seeing something different from a wagging tail than we do. They have this very complex set of tools that they use in body language and we as humans because we're not dogs. We just have trouble fully interpreting that and so I think that. A. Wagging. Tail. It might look a little bit different to them with the dog is happy than if the dog is angry and we as humans might just not be able to perceive those differences. And sometimes, I think a dog who is angry or alarmed or considering that they might possibly by you will wag its tail almost as an appeasement gesture to say like Hey I'm not a threat I'm not don't hurt me but they might still be thinking I'm kind of scared of you and I'm prepared to bite if you come any closer. So it's just It's just always important to look at the whole dog to look at his face and his eyes, and you know how he's holding the rest of his body and not just the tail hello money aller five, six years old I live in Falls Church Virginia and my question is why thumbs up partner Paul. Hi Alex well I think dogs have their thumbs up on their paws to keep them out of their way because they are basically walking on their hands rates they're using their four limbs for something differently than what we use them for horses by the way have taken this to extreme they walk just on the tips of their middle three fingers. Into hooves. So I almost feel like it might be a better question to say why are human thumbs so far forward rather than why our dog thumb so far back we're actually the ones that are unusual. Because humans and other primates like monkeys and apes we have this unusual hand that we use to hold things because we evolved to climb rate, and so we would use our hands to climb up a tree and then humans are thumbs are are even more different than in other primates because we have these very complex hands that are good for really delicate work like holding pencil and things like that. So we're actually the unusual one but yeah, they they walk around their paws obviously and they don't want their thumbs to get in the way.
Xbox Series S and X preview
"All Right Tom. You have just like dummy xbox at your house, but what is going on? You just plastic shells. He's just making videos with like should I tell you the story of week? So. They arrived on. Monday morning and like like I'm grumpy wouldn't say old berm like it and I knew phone and we get new laptop and he does know me I, know that sounds like. And and I'm like I mean a really fortunate position. But like once you've seen so much stuff once visited location. So many times he just doesn't. It's not exciting, right? So He's very me to get sight about technology but like Jane genuinely when opened up the series was like, wow, this is. Not. Excited by a brand new laptop with the latest graphics card a super fast processor and a ton of Ram Beautiful Four K. screed but you were excited by a plastic dummy box of the xbox series. And I don't know why. But it was late is is a deny it sounds really like fan boil some. It sounds like he was like Christmas I was like Oh this is so. Because I haven't seen it before. And I knew other people hadn't seen before. So is an element of that but it was also just like Michael being so small like how did how did they do this? That was my immediate thing was like how like will? It right. They haven't told me anything about it at this point. So they just sent me these damn dummy units and I was just like. BSO The dummy units arrived they respond to be I mean there was supposed to be announcing this thing next week. So there's going to be a bunch of like. Honey. Technical. In Belgrade, sessions where briefings for the press, so they give us the full information so that we'd have our goals like informative for people to read. That's great involved because like it just means that I can explain things better. readers get better pitcher and but then it leaked. So I woke up I can't even remember which day it leaked because it's just been such a week. But it leads at some point. Jews Wednesday. Up, and I was like Oh God like zoo happen, and then like that will C- kick Mike soft intellect panic mode we need to announce everything because everything's leaked. So they like just dumped the whole thing. The experts pricing everything. This is a trend because Google does this now and the thing leaks that just like Oh. Yeah. Okay. That's Just did it with the wing? Yeah. Well, I mean L. L G announces every single practice makes fifty times so. Count. But it's a pattern. We might as well, just announce it. We're done I think I think with Marxist cases that I've been. Flight. Will to years. Alongside bunch of reposes will. But like I think for them, it was like they needed to explain his fingers like the thing suspending. Well, this is the experts series S. His basically a smaller more budget friendly and and let's say less performance. Experts console than the bigger experts series X, which I'm sure most people listening to this probably familiar with Bono and it's basically designed for fourteen Philippi gaming. So like that's I, mean I'd say the vast majority of Mona's out there today that people gaming on the moment. East acton on the TV's and stuff but like this is a pretty good. Sweets book fully Philippi right now, spy from the PC side and. It's like a good talk. And they basically promising a symbol of architecture and all of the next gen premiums from the series. Excellent. CPU cloud under two hundred megahertz. The thing I care about is, does it have the the fast d at the series extras? Yeah. It does but it's five hundred, twelve storage instead of one terabyte. So there are no right. There's no Dr. Discloses all digital. Is Two hundred, ninety nine buffs, which is, which is good. I think it's like that's a pretty impressive for us but this is obviously the the the drawbacks to it. No disks will do diesel prices. If Games are typically higher yields, he can't use use games I think a lot to see Sonia my soul. In some way I'd love to just say my district sorted signing just digitize as well. I think we spoke about that on the way I look at like this series s is I think he's great life. If you kid you place fort like twenty, four, seven in bed, remove ten ADP TV because you haven't spent. Two Thousand Bucks on the Keio lead for them. Surprisingly. Like. I think I. Think it's great for that sold market like having. By that for Free Hundred Bucks and they get the new CPU the new ESA stays below times and the performance overall will be like way better than expos one. Like it just depends how it compares to the to the series x I. Think like they're doing some upscaling stuff for four K. if you really want to touch, it's a four K.. By Donna, how good that's going to be. That misses the point like. Different market. But what is the market for fourteen forty game I mean When you say monitors get it but most people with fourteen forty P monitors plugging PC's into them not consoles I is fourteen forty pm out. So I think the market is really ten API. which which is the TV's. Still turn EP like I would probably imagine the forty percent Stilton apr there at the moment. And I think that goes wildly up when you look at bedrooms and like kids rooms like where you're buying a typically smaller TV and you're not gonNA get e can't even by like a smaller lighter the twenty. Shit Four. K. TV. It's just they just don't exist. Although maybe they do but like. Just don't sell volume and I think that that's the market. That's the market ICS. Definitely. Going for like the MOMS and the POPs the shopping around at Christmas and they want to get their gear console they want to get something this noon and stuff, and these things only gonNA come down in price. So to me the market for the series S is. Why definitely have to buy a playstation because I want to get those games and if Playstation maybe I'll get the best one because I don't know what's going on the cheaper one about they're going to do there. And so if I've done that I still kind of want an xbox because I'm thinking about getting this Xbox game pass thing because he all these games on it. But I don't want to have to big ass consuls my living room saw the the cheaper xbox. I'll get the cheaper xbox to play Xbox Game Pass Games, and then I'll get the more expensive PSI to be like my main console that I get like my kick ass four K. stuff on it is. So blindingly clear which one of you has a child in which one doesn't. Just putting. Very obvious. How your perspectives shifted. Like I would say game passes Tom to your point you the game passes the thing here right? Like, yeah. If this is a Fox for your second TV or your kids TV, then what you need is a cloud gaming service. They can address all the xboxes right. And if you don't have a disk, doesn't matter because all the Games on the cloud anyway and you're just moving licenses around and maybe you're going to get to to streaming games in this thing, will be able to stream the games right like. You kinda see where they're going is these are just sort of client units for an xbox service with different GPS. Yeah. Exactly. It's different. Slight different economic you a bunch of specs and people who've been tweet me thousand times a minute this week. But you can argue a bunch of stuff to the essential differences between the two is the once targeting Larry's Lucien Melissa's and TV's and the EVA's talkative. Okay. Like that. That's that's basically the basic gist of the if you were really simplifier. And I think the cheap one is really gonNA appealed to the experts getting pulse market. Like that. Is Probably the best for you and gave me right now like I. Think it's very. Apple, arcade. Lately, just added a play or that it didn't add it to base expos game policies to the almost see have to you have to pay the all of the xbox names are bad and confusing. And then there's the P. C. There's the version that you can also play it on PC, which now costs more, right yes. Let's give me ten bucks a month by feel like that's I mean if you experts came all that covers you on anyway. So feel like you just. Denies. People go for the old anyway I think. So you've got the the series as the that will call the ten ADP model because I think it's functionally what it is even yeah basically forty nine. To Ninety nine, the series x, which is the four K. high refresh rate. Refrigerator refrigerator model. Model model is four ninety nine, which is actually still very aggressive and my mind and just based on what can do and then experts expensive. The Ninja xbox Game Pass Ultimate Yep is twenty five bucks a month in. Fifteen a month. But if you pay more and then you get a box out of it to write for twenty four months, you you you pay the subsidize. It's like a phone plan. Basically you get you pay a little bit more and then you a paying down your hardware and installments and it's basic. Tech Industry only has one business model which is. And T. in two, thousand and four. Yeah. But right. But that's a killer deal right that she ended up paying less over the twenty four months than you would. If you bought them separately right when you can get either right for the Yup can get the X. which I think is four, nine, nine a month I think. Five month or twenty five, the S. I I see that I'm like I'm just GonNa. I'm just GONNA, X.. Whatever like I am going to do the dumb starbucks, which is it's three coffees Erlich whatever. AM. And that is just a brilliant move for Microsoft, right? Yeah. Basically make an expensive thing seemed cheap even as maybe in the end, it's only slightly cheaper than buying everything out right?
Age of Calamity Is a Hyrule Warriors Sequel and a Breath of the Wild Prequel
"And welcome to Nintendo voice ITN's Nintendo podcast. I'm your host Casey Freedom in this week I'm joined by Brian Tano. Hey, Lee. Back on that from games come. Hey what's up? Hairstyle. So here. I am also here I'm also here well, I got I got busted I was still working when the show started. So a lot of people will see what I look like when I'm typing emails. I. See. Her. But this week, we will be talking about higher warriors age of calamity, how we really feel about Super Mario Three D all-stars being limited release in ramifications behind that move and of course about how much it costs but I believe the obviously the biggest news this week I mean besides some other big news but we don't really care about that on the show is higher warriors age calamity. Is Coming on November twentieth. Your. Game. I mean in it comes out the day after Cyberpunk I'm not happy about that. Yeah that seems like a mistake. Yeah. So I will I will say that like this was this was a surprise for sure right like this is in a in a year full of things leaking constantly. This was pretty awesome surprised to find that there's essentially a prequel to breadth of the wild coming to Nintendo switch. If, I just defined as that than. Most excited man in the world but this is a game in from tecmo Koei. It is a a warrior style game akin to hurry warriors and viral. Euros is that was called. which is Great. If you wait is it let's get that. Right? Is it heroes the one on the phone or is heroes the one? I ever warriors is the one on on. Okay I see you out there. Firing them sub. Read it. Relax. We got it. Right. Thank you. Thank you for having my back on that one pair your. That's happening. You saw. WanNa drought. Running back if you wanna see pair absolutely roast Brian Yeah No, you totally left me at the dry there. You're know if I ever move on a call Atkins accent come over and helping move and not you because you were not close friends. Resent. It is really difficult to keep the names of the warriors franchise straight right they. They're all of these games are so different in name. Yet they're all part of the warriors. Franchise. Dynasty. High rule yet and Hans maybe the fire emblem game is called find bloom heroes. Okay No, it's warriors. Okay. Let's move on. Somebody offer discord call. I WanNa worry a warriors game. So I from what I've been seeing overall people have been accepting this overall positively I think if this was part of a bigger directs I, think people would have seen the beginning of this thought it was brought to the while to and then been kind of like. Hey. Can I don't know taken by surprise? It's not what they're expecting but because they were upfront, it was a standalone announcement. It's able to kind of shine on its own and not to be in the shadow of what people really really wrong because now it's just a cool bonus. I understand why they did it the way that they did, but I have to say that. Having our Numa start this statement by. We know that people have been waiting for news about breath of the wild for a very long time. It's so cruel what A. Roller coaster of emotions man that was like Oh. My God Oh, I see I see. I, for some reason I did not I was not expecting any news on Zelda and so when he appeared I'm like Cool Zelda pick cross or something right? Like he I instantly when I saw him I somehow instantly knew it was going wasn't going to be the the sequel but I thought they handled the announcement really well, you know they set the set the stage saying it's GonNa be a while until you hear more information about the next game, but here's something to you over and. You know like I played the last Jairo Warriors, fired it up the you know. Yesterday and played a bunch with my daughter and it's like these games are good. We gave them seven Slat think Casey you reviewed one right. So Jose reviewed the original gave it a seven I. reviewed the definitive edition on the switching. Gave it a seven point five for good I know that our scale doesn't. Follow that anymore. But if I had to either up down, I, would honestly probably bump it up to an eight down to a seven. I, think the amount of content in that game is astounding even though it is kind of repetitive I mean it's Musso game for Games, Dynasty Warriors. You're just fighting hordes of enemies, but with highrise finish edition you you got like thirty one characters and right off the bat you had sixteen to choose from, and then on top of that, the story is actually. Even, completely off the wall in bonkers ridiculous. It was still pretty There's a to it and there are a lot of really interesting. man I'm drawing a blank cut scenes that kind of gave more personality to allow the characters and they brought characters from all of the different Zelda game. So I really enjoyed it and on top of that, you got a regular legends. Zelda map to explore where you could. There's a lot to go read the rape. Yeah, it's an. replaying it I. I was struck by how much fun it is. It is fun to just kinda slash these hordes of enemies and like get bigger specials and you know switching between characters unlocking more. There is a there's a lack of the final tweak and finish that Zelda Games known for right like just even the way the camera fields is just super. Janki to me like by default he can tweak a lot in this game, which is great. Right? Like everything just is a little Jane he still. Including the whole like I've mentioned this before it sometimes feels like a Zelda imposture thing you look at the characters saying something is wrong with the way they. Look and all of that but as a silly. Game it works and then case you exactly right. It's like this game is all about volume. It's all about like hordes of enemies and it's all about hordes of rewards like when you finish level, it's almost like this like giant treasure chest monster comes forward and just barth items out it's just like you. Blew. You finish a level has just list after list of these things in you hitting the button to get through all of them right? which is completely different from Zelda game where it's like you find the hook shot and it's like this momentous occasion that's you over the next two hours. Like to me Zelda has always been about I think most people about you know exploration

20 Republican Senators Petition the FDA to Ban the Abortion Pill
"The GOP continues to be indomitable creepy about reproduction even in the midst of a pandemic. No this happened last week but I wanted to talk about it because it was so egregious. Last. Week Twenty Republican senators joined forces to ask the FDA to ban one of the medications used for early abortions. One of the Senators Ted Cruz and he tweeted. Pregnancy. Is Not a life threatening illness and the abortion pill does not cure or prevent any disease make no mistakes. mifepristone is a dangerous pill. First of all, you just hear that in his voice, his kind of whiny pontificating voice even though it was a tweet, it's like the same voice he used when he yelled at Donald Trump for saying his father was part of the JFK conspiracy are murder. It's not I mean I don't know how the voice would sound defending his wife from Donald Trump calling her ugly because that never happened he never. but this this he's gotten involved in, he's going to stand up to
Oscars set inclusion standards for Best Picture nominees
"In other news that's rocking La after years of Hashtag Oscarssowhite. The Motion Picture Academy has announced a major rule change to hopefully make the Oscars. Hashtag. So right, the Oscars are making inclusion requirement for best picture consideration starting at twenty, twenty four, those movies must meet diversity requirements in two out of four production categories widening opportunities for underrepresented groups. They include women, minorities, and people with cognitive or physical disabilities promoters of the initiative say the changes will better reflect the diversity of the movie going audience. So this is encompassing the totality of the people that actually work on film. All Shift From now on movies can only be nominated for best picture if they meet certain diversity thresholds wherever Martin Scorsese is right now he is shitting himself. He's probably calling dicaprio begging him to make a plan come on your show. You can't play black you can do anything I know you can personally. I think this opens a bunch of opportunities I. Hope that long running franchises will just switch up the races of people and never address it. Like how dope would be in the next Batman Movie? He's just Jamaican I beat about. What? Did you. See. For. What you want to see if what give him dude my you know what was funny man is soon as the story came out so many people read the headline and they just started panicking bitching online people like this is censorship you can't force filmmakers to create whatever you want I mean, how can you make a period piece with diversity? There were no black people but. You actually read the story before chiming in people would have realised that in fact, these new standards which only take effect in two thousand, twenty four I'm not that strict. For instance, a movie qualifies if it has just one lead role from an underrepresented group and thirty percents of the crew from an underrepresented group as well. Right? Even if it has just thirty percent diversity in the Marketing Department or an internship program for an underrepresented group and by the way. They define underrepresented groups as Black Asian Hispanic Indigenous People, women, the disabled community or members of the Lgbtq community. So in other words, it's super easy to meet this criteria.

Entry about you is called the hope what keeps you what makes you hopeful and I'd love to end on this note because there's so much going on right now from the pandemic. To climate degradation, which can really leave a person feeling despair about our planet but you have hope and I'd love to hear what keeps you hopeful. What I did will you hear all the time think globally act locally that's completely the wrong way round because quite honestly. I think everybody who thinks about the state of the planet globally will lose the they just. have any energy to do anything locally they'll be so depressed but of the whole message of roots and shoots if you start actually doing something to make a difference, ben you suck me feel you know while I am making a difference you know that will run the world of the people making a difference.

"East, Africa that's from the National Geographic documentary. The hope which came out earlier this year goodall taught us how much we have in common with chimpanzees over the decades she expanded her work and became a leading conservationist and climate activists. Jane. Goodall. Is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and United Nations. Messenger. Of Peace She's also dame dame of the British Empire and she's the author of more than a dozen books including my friends, the wild chimpanzees which came out in Nineteen sixty-nine and reason for hope, a spiritual journey which came out thirty years later, lots more books in between Jane Goodall welcomed on point and congratulations on sixty years of research in Gombe Bay and it's truly an honor to have you on the program. Well. Thank you. Antony, and it's lovely to be on the program which I've been on the number of times before and yeah, sixty years is pretty amazing. He is gone. Well, it is amazing in the work you've done is truly amazing I wondered if you could serve take us back. We heard that clip from the documentary, which is wonderful by the way take us back to July of nineteen, sixty, nineteen, sixty or twenty, twenty-six you land in Tanzania to study chimpanzees. What was the first challenged you faced when you arrived? Actually the first challenge was getting to the Gumby National Park where it was a game reserve than. The the problem was that on the other side of Lake, Tanganyika just to cross the were. They Belgian. Congo's it was then had erupted. There was violence, and so the little town when when we arrived was absolutely fall of fleeing refugees love step Olympus. So it was it was about two weeks before I was allowed to proceed along lake and get to the Gumby. National Park but once I got there. It will seem rather unreal. It just felt am I really here can this really really be me Climbing up after the tent was erected and looking out over the lake and hearing baboon sparking. Breathing, in the smell of the forest really was magic. I bet it was I have to imagine that just finding your subjects that chimpanzees I mean. It wasn't like you arrive there put up your tent and then sort of sat down with your notebook and just started studying them I mean how did you? How did you go about finding them first of all? I put the first three weeks. I was made to take a local guy with me by the British authorities. It was still part of the crumbling British Empire back then. They wouldn't let me go out alone. So he showed me some of the trails and the could was you climb up to a place which overlooks the valley and then you wait and you hope that the windows to violent. So you can see trees moving and often it turned out to be baboons or monkeys, but sometimes, it was chimpanzees and once I was able to be on my own, which is. Exactly what I wanted to do. Then, I, would find a tree that was ripe fruit. They're very early in the morning and wait and chimpanzees away. As soon as they saw me, we've never seen a white eight before. You. Know they just they're very conservative. And Well I was really worried though Sony money to six months. I was afraid that the money would run out before I found anything really exciting. Of course you did find lots of exciting things. One of the things I wanted to ask you is to talk about your connection with them and to to animals in general because one who has watched a film of you interacting with chimpanzees I mean, there's this incredible sense of. Connection it's it's not just a skilled scientists observing. There's something. That is really human to animal connection I'd love you to describe that because it's quite powerful. It always brings tears to my eyes when I watched the footage of you working with these animals. I think it started when I was born loving animals until all my life by being outside and Magadan waiting for. Eggs to hatch into baby birds waiting till they've fledged and keeping very quiet. So the parent birds got used to me and would come in and feed the babies and I would watch squirrel occasionally there was Fox, and of course, I had this wonderful dog who taught me so much about animals. So when I got to Gumby I hadn't been to university nobody else was studying gyms fact virtually nobody was studying anything in the wild and so I just did the same thing and gradually gradually chimpanzees got used to me. and. Was David. GREYBEARD. Beloved David Greybeard who I began to lose his fear and he really helped the others to lose fear because if he lives in a group with them instead of running away they social I suppose they thought well David sitting and he was a leader. So she comes so scary after all Aman gradually the lack of fear turn to aggression that was a pretty nasty. Through four weeks where the chimpanzees three to like Predator, it wanted to go away. But I. Didn't I just sat pretended I was interested in them and interestingly it was specially when it was raining and you know if you're watching people in the pelting rain, you see him take risks though. The road they normally wouldn't an chimps go a bit like that. But anyway eventually they realize I wasn't going and luckily they didn't try and attack me and much much stronger than we are. And then that aggression turn to tolerance acceptance and trust and the seems that you saw in that in that documentary, you know we couldn't do that today. We don't interact with them today. We know they can catch diseases we can catch this. So it's not today but back then. Anybody who was studying animals tried to have a close relationship and I those days absolutely. The Best I knew the chimpanzees so well, I trust them may trusted me. And it was wonderful. It sounds absolutely magical. I WanNa ask you about. One of these major discoveries that chimps make and use tools nobody knew.
interview With Roger Glover Of Deep Purple
"I had a chance to spend some time with his Band on the road throughout Mexico we had some great journeys. We had a great lunch legendary ban that is on a long goodbye tour that apparently is getting longer because they've just released a great new album called whoosh here is Roger Glover of Deep Purple Raj. How are you my friend? I'm great I'm great. You remember that luxury. Well, we we. I don't remember what city it was in but we stumbled upon some some spot and remember the band playing and we had a couple of drinks. It was a wonderful afternoon. That's right. There were more in the band we're eating in the restaurant. That's really true. We have a great photo of that somewhere. But anyway have you been Roger I mean it's It's crazy times in the world and deep purple is such a global touring band. It must be quite strange for you'd have to be sort of tethered down right now. a very strange Initially the longest time I've ever had. Is Our full. Stop. Jane. Cooking cleaning. Gardening. Well. You've got a young one you gotta young onto don't you? Too Young well, eleven and nine that's pretty young. That's a that's a that's younger than mine. So I know what it's like it's it's a lot of work. On, my older one is came over for a couple of weeks. She shot forty now and married and my two grandkids. FOR THE MOA It's been a hectic hectic time I. Keep Thinking this a rehearsal took permanent retirement. But I you know I don't want that to happen. So we live in hope. we recorded this album nausea year and so. The original release date was June sometime to go put back to August. Having sitting on a new album beside long without getting released. He's like old hat to us now and yet everyone tearing it for the first time. Yeah. I was GonNa ask you used to that I was GonNa ask you about the time line on it because if I'm not mistaken when we were traveling together and we did run through Mexico together, I remember some rumblings at that time from some of the guys in the band about the idea of. Doing a new record. So at that point, it was still in the talking stages I think and then I'm assuming you wrapped up touring everybody said Yeah let's go for it and you once again connect with the Bob with Bob. Ezra talk about the timeline and and given that you guys are short of winding down. was there differences in the band as to whether you should do new record or not? No. No wasn't actually it was. Quite organic. We'll wanted to do it. I think the thing is since probe. we've done three albums with him now and there's I think there's a feeling that our age seventy S. This is the Korea and we we've got three Amazing albums. showed a sort of a late flowering of abandoned Korea if you like. Very happy about that what what is it? What is it about the connection with the Bantu Baba's your and you know I've talked Alice Cooper about this and he's got a long history with them and a few other artists and I've actually talked to Bob and interviewed him a timer to what what is it for you? What is it about the purple guys that he's brought out of you guys that you feel so comfortable and wanting to be creative with him. And Klay in Toronto. Eight nine years ago. We didn't meet him that night, but the next day we had. A breakfast meeting with him. And he said some great things. He said he really loved musicianship in Swanton Ahe of the band. And He said. Should forget trying to you know, right. Songs to get you know. Parades forget sixty s just be yourself some stretch out. Not Keywords because we started writing. whatever immagination took us. and. I think we had a whole news of the writing experience lost three albums of Philip songs we could never written. Back in the seventies. So the the nineties so so You know. S Precious that connection. We get along with them really well, he looks very efficiently in the studio he encourages. Spontaneity. Encourages. freshness of all recording at the same time, we will go in the studio at the same dominant record the. We don't allow things on you know.

We're talking going to talk about a lot more. My Guess Jane Goodall. Thala just conservationists activists best known for her long term study of Z's Anthony Brooks. This is on point. A. This is on point I'm Anthony. Brooks were talking to Jane Goodall about her legacy and the challenges surrounding climate change and species conservation, and let's go right to our calls. Jane Goodall. We've got a lot of callers who want to get in on this conversation. Juniper is calling from Nashville go ahead, juniper. You're on the air. Thanks for the call. Hi. My name is junior juniper I'm eight years old I was wondering what parts of the world need the mostly searched because I want to be that when I grow up juniper. Thanks so much for that Jane. Did you get that? I hunt. She wanted to be a better. Question what part of the world needs the most research? Because? Yes, she wants to be a vet when she grows up. Well I tell you that there isn't a single country where event is needed where we need every single country, animals need help. Animals need to be protected, and sometimes they're veterinarian who come and work in sankt trees to look after the chimpanzees. We have battery help now in in the national parks, the wild chimpanzees because the so few left that we have to make sure to try and keep them healthy, so we can dot them and treat them if necessary a bad wound for example. juniper thanks so much for that. Call Jane Goodall I'm so glad that juniper called a eight years old and I have to say in my household. The th there is cross generational appeal for you. I've been following your work for a long time. My nine year old son knows who you are and is. Really enamored of the of the kind of work that you do so this seems like a good moment to ask you about roots and shoots and sort of what your messages to young people, but tell us about roots and shoots, and and and what it does. Well it. It began in Tanzania and nineteen ninety-one. And it was when twelve high school students came to see me in my house, and they came from eight different schools, and they were very concerned about all kinds of different things. Poaching Fox wasn't the government doing more street children with no homes. A wide range of problems that they felt needed solving so I told them to go and get their friends, and we had a big meeting, and that's when roots and shoots was born, and basically we decided that the main message was every individual makes a difference every day of Rian, individual as role to play in matters, that every group would choose three projects one to help. People want help animals when to help. Help the environment because everything in nature's interconnected, we parked over not separated from the natural world and some big problem today so anyway, what began twelve high school? Students is now in sixty five countries and growing fast, and it's got hundreds of thousands of members i. don't remember how many groups are as many groups. We don't even know about you know. We suddenly found a little group somewhere in the forests of Ecuador. Roots and shoots. We found out about the by accident. and. Changing the world that they literally these young people know that rolling up those leads taking action that planting trees, which is very important today that cleaning streams doing campaigns about. Single, use plastic and today we have members in kindergarten, and we have members in university and everything in between, and they are changing, while they are my greatest reason for hope. And I hope any child parent listening. We'll try and get involved because changes their lives, too. So. Let's go to Tanya. She's calling from Concord Mass Tanya. You're on the air. Jane Goodall! Thanks for the call. Go ahead! Thank you, Anthony. Thanks for your great hosting and Ms Goodall. It's It's a great honor to the listening to you and to be speaking with you. I wanted to point out that in terms of for more experimentation on chimps, year or so ago I was. At the conference at the Radcliffe Institute that's Harvard and there were some researchers from China who were showing slides. Of their experimentation on chimps in in in trying to find a cure for depression, and it involves crisper. Taking a gene modifications and it was very very sad to see the poor suffering chimp and the coordinator of its cage, just huddling over. It was a terrible sight and. and there was a push to get more US support to to get back into experimentation on chimpanzees precisely because of their. closeness to us and I. I just wanted to mention that and hear what you have to say. Thank you. Thank you Tanya Jane Goodall to what extent are his? That kind of research being conducted on chimps, and to what extent are you still concerned about that? Most monkeys now but. The occasional Jim. In Germany, for example to patents were just refused. Could Genetically Modifying Chimpanzee but we have routine shoot salute at China, the huge movement in China to protect animals. It's it's growing fast. many states now banned eating of dogs, and after the Kobe nineteen, the government was very quick to ban the a sale, the trafficking and the eating of wild animals. So it's changing. It takes time you know America for example, until recently was the second largest importer of ice in the world coming to China then China banned the importation of ivory. And these things just take time, but yes, we can try and fight poaching in. Africa but we also have to work on the demand. Because when money is involved when people can get rich by shooting a rhino and selling its horn, they going to go on doing it even if it's illegal, so that's where roots and shoots comes in and we just working working away on reducing the demand for wild animals and cruelty to domestic animals well Tanya.

"L. V. Leaky. She has observed the daily lives of chimpanzees in east. Africa That's from the National Geographic Documentary, the hope which came out earlier this year goodall taught us how much we have in common with chimpanzees, and over the decades she expanded her work and became a leading conservationist and climate activist. Jane, Goodall is the founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and United Nations Messenger of peace. She's also dame dame of the British Empire and. She's the author of more than a dozen books including my friends, the wild chimpanzees, which came out in nineteen, sixty nine and reason for hope, spiritual journey, which came out thirty years later lots more books in between Jane Goodall welcomed on point and congratulations on sixty years of research in Gone Bay, and it's truly an honor to have you on the program. Well. Thank you and to me and it's lovely to be on the program which I've seen on the number of times before and yeah. Sixty years pretty amazing. I don't. Go well, it is amazing in the work you've done is truly amazing. I wondered if you could serve, take us back. We heard that clip from the documentary which is wonderful by the way take us back to July of nineteen sixty, nineteen, sixty, twenty, twenty-six, you land in Tanzania to study chimpanzees. What was the first challenged? You faced when you arrived? Actually the first challenge was getting to the Gumby National Park. It was a game reserve and. The the problem. was that on the other side of Lake Tanganyika just across the world. They Belgian Congo's it was then had erupted, there was violence and so the little town when when we arrived was absolutely full of fleeing refugees lost their. Possessions, so it was, it was about two weeks before I was allowed to proceed along lake. Get get to the Gumby National Park, but once off their. You know it seem brother unreal. It just felt am I really here. Can this really really be me? Climbing up after the tent was erected, looking out over the lake and hearing baboons, balking breathing in the smell of the forest, really was magic I. Bet it was I have to imagine that just finding your subjects, the chimpanzees I mean it wasn't like you arrive there put up your tent and then sort of sat down with your notebook and just started studying them. I mean how did you? How did you go about finding them first of all? Well I for the first two three weeks, I was made to take a local guy with me by the British authorities was still part of the crumbling Grisham Empire back then? and. They wouldn't let me go out alone. So? He showed me some of the trails and the secret was you climb up to a place which overlooks the valley, and then you wait, and you hope that the window to violent, so you can see trees moving, and often it turn turn out to be baboon on monkeys, but sometimes it was chimpanzees. And once I was able to be on my own, which is. Exactly what I wanted to do a then. I would find a tree that was ripe fruit. That very early in the morning and wait and chimpanzees runaway. As soon as they saw me, we'd never seen a white eight. You know they just the very conservative. and. Well! I was really worried Sony money to six months and I was afraid that the money would run out before I found anything really exciting. Of course you did find lots of exciting things and one of the things I wanted to ask you is to talk about your connection with them and t to animals in general, because anyone who has watched a film of you interacting with chimpanzees. I mean there's this incredible sense of. Connection it's. It's not just a skilled scientists observing something. That is really human to animal connection I'd love you to describe that because it's quite powerful. It always brings tears to my eyes when I watched the footage of you working with these animals. I think it started when I was born loving animals, and said well. My life I being outside in Magadan, waiting for. Eggs to hatch into baby birds waiting till they've fledged and keeping very quiet, so that the parent birds got used to me and would come in and feed the babies. And I would watch squirrel occasionally. There was Fox and of course I had this wonderful dog who taught me so much about animals, so when I got to Gumby I hadn't been to university. Nobody else was studying gyms. Virtually nobody was studying anything in the wild, and so I just did the same thing. And gradually gradually the chimpanzees got use to me and. It was David Greybeard. Love it, David Greybeard I began to lose his fear, and he really helped the others to lose their fear, because if he was in a group with them instead of running away, they sort of I. Suppose they thought well David Sipping Man. He was a leader, so she so scary after all and then gradually. Lack of fear, turn to aggression that was. Pretty Nasty. Through four weeks, where the chimpanzees treated me like Predator, it wanted me to go away. But I didn't. I just sat pretended. I wasn't interested in. And interestingly it was specially when it was raining. And you know if you watching people in the pelting rain, you see, take risks. They'll run across the road. They normally wouldn't an chimps to a bit like that. But anyway eventually they realized I wasn't going, and luckily they didn't try and attack me much much stronger than we are. And then that aggression turn to tolerance, acceptance and trust, and the seems that you saw in that in that documentary. You know we couldn't do that today. We don't interact with them today. We know they can catch. Diseases can catch this, so it's not today, but back then. Anybody who was studying animals tried to have a close relationship and I. Those days were absolutely the best I knew the chimpanzees so well. I trust them and may trusted me. And it was wonderful. It sounds absolutely magical I WANNA. Ask You about. One of these major discoveries that chimps make and use tools. Nobody knew that before you did.

You spent some time in New York early on New York. Of course just reminding you in case you don't know where you are. What are your memories of coming here because this was like where you got your start at in terms like getting serious about acting right. Yes so I went to college in Baltimore Maryland and then I dropped out because I was like. I'm going to be an actor and mom and dad. I'm going to be an act. Was that did that. Catch THEM BY SURPRISE. You acted a bit as a kid. You've shown some tendencies. Yeah I actually do it surprise. I kinda surprised myself like I'm I'm proud of my clearly. I'm in therapy. I'm like I have to point out all the moments that I'm proud of myself therapy session where you don't have to pay me back at my younger self and I'm like okay. Good aren't you? You WanNa do that thing and you went after it so I moved to New York to go to Stella Adler lived in Murray Hill Murray Hill at one point strange plays older than like your crowd of that time and then the crowd maybe a little bit more conservative like Republican Zone at least a relative to the rest of New York City. You're probably like some pretty trashy barth tonic with like ten thousand flats screens and like. I remember waking up leaving. Just be like P. And like blood like flowing out of tonic into the drains of the federal yeah precursor to Evil Dead Pe- and Sorry Still Adler anyways to sell Adler had time in my life. New York City is so much fun to be a young wide eyed creative person cocoa. I got a MOCHA delicious. And we we asked if you wanted one okay. This is my third coffee of the day which is too many but talk so had it was still at work a rigorous kind of a program. I mean the name is important but no it wasn't rigorous and I went also to the evening program so I would go to school. I think four hours a night and I worked at the school restocking the toilet paper and doing some administrative work to a guest pay for my tuition but I love acting a lot and I love talking about the history of acting and I love plays and reading plays and document plays and so it was like. Oh Wow yeah and it was. I guess what I had been missing in my life up until then because this is my greatest passion and so I was like. Oh yeah this is doing what it feels like to be really turned on by something. Were you trying to get work while you were here or was it kind of like this? Is this study zone. And I'm going to give the year and then I transitioned like commercials. Or why weren't you like a dead body law and order at some point like New York actor? I didn't know what the normal route is was supposed to be. Although there obviously isn't known normal like actor route but I just was nineteen and twenty and in school. And I remember Wa- I don't pray. I'm not religious but I remember walking down the streets of Newark. Basically asking God to make me an actress award like and I I knew somewhere inside of me that it was possible. I was like I remember one time. One of the teachers said okay. Let's be real the likelihood of any working zero and I in my head. I was like you have a spirit. Inside was captain of the hip hop dance. Yeah we're you. Yes wasn't that think I'm insane? That actually is is basically correct It sounds like always whatever you you've been Taipei in that you've kind of like gone after whatever you were passionate about the time and very determined. Yeah yes they look you in relation on that so like those like family friends. Growing up would have said like from the start. You with a precocious kind of like strong spirit yes. I think that I was not a very happy kid and I feel much happier. Life is a lot better now as a thirty year old. I wonder what people would have said because I've asked my mom like my mom didn't know that I was. This was inside you that you know. I don't think she did. I had really supportive parents but whatever. I don't think anyone expected that I was going to be an actor. Basically can yeah. I can understand how that can make for like an unusual when you have something that you don't know you don't know what is inside of you but it wants to get out so that can manifest in different ways right and also. I think yes so you here for about a year. I was here for a year and a half. We had a showcase which a lot of theater schools do. And you do for Your Lake. Showcase was I wish I remembered. Oh my gosh. Two years of hard living of also remember like sobbing finding out what those the scene that they gave me. Because I was like I want like you're selecting your a monologue or something. That's probably why he blocked it out. John MacLean I you know they make a booklet of your photograph and your resume. Even though I had no resume and sent it out to various represent representatives and manager just saw my headshot which happened to be a very good headshot and called me in for a meeting and basically signed me on the spot of my head shot. Does that mean you had a very good headshots? Click in particular. They caught the light in the perfect way. So it's not like we can show it on the microphone but it was a really good like you knew at the time like. Oh this is the best version me. No I didn't know until after I got a manager just from a picture let's see. Oh my gosh she's wearing a Tiara in it and Elsa address before Elsa was even thing well anyway so he sent me on some auditions while I was in acting school and I ended up. Maybe told you this story. But I ended up booking a job within a month and it was the leading character in a independent movie wherein Melanie Alinsky was gonNA play my mom and you ended up getting to know Melanie later right and also melons the best ten years older than me wrong. I'd now maybe she was thirteen years old an unusual. Let's play my mom. I dropped out of it because I ended up getting shameless agents. Were like you should do shameless and I was like. I can't drop out of the project people with all the time. I was like okay anyway so then. I ended up working with working with Melanie two more times and I feel so lucky to be destined to work with Melania Lindsey. She's so and she's such a person who was the other major league is made together with great. I love that one. I don't feel at home in this world anymore. It had unfortunate title. That was the problem with that. I think it did win. Best Film I remember. I talked to Melania and Elijah at Sundance for that one. I really liked that movie me. So you and shameless. After you drop out like a diva already of your first project. Yes but then you get your real first project. You do a few episodes on shameless. Big Learning curve. It sounds like it was my first time on a film set first time seeing a camera. So it's all like the because I've heard the stories to the fore and I always boggles my mind when people are like. I didn't know what a mark was legit. Didn't you were idea? They're throwing these terms and they were so nice to me. What's good? Yeah all of them. The cast the producers the director. There were like go get him. Can you got this? It's fine yeah good job and I was like really did it feel like Like can you chart back to that and be like okay from there on? It was kind of relatively speaking smooth sailing. Like one thing led to another. Yeah I'm like why can't I go back to that time? Aspirations for low just kept me in front of a camera now you have the burden of like knowing what a great project is a mediocre projects standards right. Yeah basically yeah and much more complicated stuff throwing around the good stuff. Yeah we'll get there. We got time. Let's let Zoe. I know we'll we'll back because I really liked the show. Thank you I. It's it's such a bizarre concept that like maybe shouldn't work but it's very charming and sweet and just works so in a nutshell. I don't know what the elevator pitch on. This is probably a better than me but so we can hear other. People's thoughts form of musical numbers was presented to you. Is it presented to you as like that can absorb or the script? I actually can't remember which came first. Okay probably the blurb right. You're like all in. That sense. Sounds Weird enough for me I mean? Are you saying I'm weird? I think I've sensed that already. That's why you're you're Weirdos. Welcome here definitely weird But it had enough of off kilter something that appealed to you. There's something weird about it Musical theater background. I did musical theater as a child in school and in Community Theater mccrea mainly because I liked to act and there wasn't that was what was nonmusical yes productions being put up. Yeah desperate actor even then they'll take it. Yes but we're you in your twenties where you doing. Karaoke nights where you singing this. No no so. This is unusual. Jane yes they also audition you know. This is unusual jayme starving musical series song and dance and I can't find on the resume that year you're in cats. I can't find it. I did make a really bizarre musical in two thousand fourteen. That went to the Toronto Film Festival. I feel like I talked to you there. We definitely talked in Toronto. Did we talk about a musical in Toronto that I'm blanking on the worst? Oh my God it was. It's you don't have to. That's not a thing. Okay it became. I now am memory. We Toronto that's there. I made this really weird movie and it was a musical so there is tape of me singing so when the I don't know who told us into higher me I'm still asking him that question because I when we did. Someone just showed up when you're being polite on our first meeting. I was like do you know who I am. Do you have any idea like what I can do? It was very strange because they were offering me this huge job and I was like I feel like you don't know me though but again what that might say something like half the answers to questions have been this like second sight kind of like what was going on in your brain observing like all of this which is very appropriate for. Zoe. I'm very neurotic..

We have a bunch of really exciting content planned so stay tuned to the end of episode to hear more are women if the day was an activist and reformer who pioneered the field of social work contributed to the study of sociology and advocated for the inclusion of women in the public sphere. She was a suffrage EST and philosopher who co-founded the ACLU and was the first American woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. Let's talk about Jane. Addams Jane was born on September six eighteen sixty in Cedar Ville Illinois. She was the second youngest of nine children in a very prominent family. Her father was successful. Had friends in high places. Including Abraham Lincoln. Jane's mother passed away when Jane was just two years old from an early age Jane was determined to do something to make a difference in the world. She attended rockford female seminary and graduated in eighteen. Eighty one after that. She decided she wanted to become a doctor to help. Serve the needs of the poor. Jane attended one year of Medical School at the University of Pennsylvania before dropping out due to illness. Her career and medicine was dead. But Jane's desire for mission driven work was still kicking. It was an era of social reform and activism in eighteen eighty nine Jane and her friend Ellen Gates Starr decided to visit a settlement house in London called Twain. Bohol in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries settlement houses were created by people who offered educational services and attempted to combat poverty particularly in neighborhoods with high immigrant populations in industrial cities. These centers provided space for people from very different backgrounds to interact and exchange ideas as such settlement houses were breeding grounds for new social reforms. Jane and Ellen were so inspired by twenty hall that they decided to create their own settlement house called Hull House. In Chicago's West Side House provided lots of different services to people in the industrial neighborhood including adult education and job training kindergarten in daycare job placement acculturation classes and cooking. There was a Community Center Art Gallery and a gym with success of Hull House. Under her belt Jane became a very active and well known speaker and reformer for a wide variety of causes. She successfully called for juvenile court system lobbied for better sanitation and factory laws and advocated for Labor reforms. At the core of her work was the desire to improve the lots of women and children at the University of Chicago. Chain helped establish a school of social work and thereby opened a new career field predominantly served by women. She also made significant contributions to the academic field of sociology and was a charter member of the American Sociological Society. In an essay entitled Utilization Of Women In city government Jane compared the government to a household. She argued that certain functions of the government fell under the traditional women's sphere. She said women have more knowledge and ability to make decisions on things like sanitation educating children and should therefore be given the right to vote. Jane was an officer and the National American woman suffrage association and was one of the founders of the N. W. C. P. Jane was also unavowed pacifist when World War One began.

I've said about her both both diplomatic in their own different. I mean I think it's like like she is correct in sort of defending yourself with the accent. Because it's like those where I'm from but it also weirdly feel like not where I think. She is weirdly holding onto an inability to be criticized which I know. She doesn't is an exhibit and other parts of her writing and the way she talks. So it's like just just take it's not even an l.. Just be like yeah I get you know this is an accent. That is one one of the accents I use. I can code switch and also like why people are have affected by a different addition people. There you go. Here's your Goddamn statement good.

"j. jane" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"WHO's an executive producer at a production company that could very well that could very well be me yeah. Had I stay so how'd you stay or you. A you know our I probably would have ended up in some kind of advertising me too because I do the same thing. I watch commercials and I go. That's fucking lazy shitty stuff exact commercials cels are art that is foisted upon us. Yes and they could be better. They could be the only reason to be so cynical and shitty and lives like this is the same and also I'll just look look at the store how they're telling this story Marshall Yeah and sometimes it's like what they're wearing and will. They didn't cut away clearly enough and you can tell it's a nonunion actor now. Now I I could us. Take Non Union people and make them good yeah. I I know how to do it. That's what I would love to do that. I in fact Jennifer sometimes when we're watching television she pauses and says either direct to commercial or just shut up. I don't care that much. I know I I'm the the same way and and having had that experience of directing a few number one. It's really fun because you've got a set amount of hours. You got a list the things you got to accomplish and it's like a beat the clock game show and and there are different kinds of directors. You know there's there's Alfred Hitchcock Koos storyboards out the whole thing Steven Spielberg kind of the same thing with a real sort of like vision. There's also directors and this is the kind of director that I am men that I would like to be in the future. which is the person that just everybody asks their taste? should we do this or this and they do that. Yeah Yeah Yeah and your whole day is just a series decision making decisions and problem solving. We're running out of time Shit. We're not gonNA shoot this thing in that room. Let's just turn around on to this other side of this room. We're already here. Just turn the lights over there and we'll shoot this rather than go to another room. Just simple Bravo's awnings which you gain came from being onset yes gain from having done this you gain from watching sitting and watching people make a bunch of bad decision and again. It's just a question of taste and and it's like I feel like yeah. I've done this I don't. I now sometimes when I guess do guests work. I have to bite my fucking fucking tongue all the time because they're trying to solve a problem and I'm like this one this way. Let's say just great up around around here. I mean I'm not like too much of an arrogant person but there are one of my main jobs here. Is I call it comedy concierge. I mean I'm on I do what I do on on camera but I also in Rehearsal Conan I or the last step going out the door and then I don't care who the person charges. They need somebody that they can trust to turn to him. Go is that good yeah because all right shit and I'll look at it and go. Is that good. I don't know and you have to ask them to go and somebody you trust has yeah. It's good and you go okay fine move on now. 'cause you say it's good. I believe you yeah and that's kind of what I've been for him for years and so I get to sort of make does decisions and this needs a new ending or cut up that middle part and wh when there are questions sometimes and I'll say do it this way and then other people people kind of go on with other things and I'll say no you should do it this way and then they go on and I will turn to whomever usually it's like a Qr golly. They should just do what I tell them. It's so much easier to just do do what I say. It'll be good reminder. Be the greatest but it'll be good and we can move the fuck on right so yeah. I I think I think you would make a fantastic director. You know because you know you have always been a calm in the storm and that's a major thing that director needs theon and I think you make you go good taste. You make good choices. You have more confidence in that now and I think a lot of what happens is in the editing room as long as long as you have the camera rolling and something genuine yeah because even if it's a damn commercial about you know you know look into in two years something like that you know just. I would always have the camera rolling yeah and then I just put it in. That's how Christopher guest works right. That's why you roll so long because he klux genuine moments from every take yeah so you think Oh. I'm sure this will end up and the tape take with you like rubbing your knows what he uses in its hilarious yeah it's in in the middle of someone pontificating and they're not trying when they're not trying when they're not specially of how they're looking for exactly kids and nonunion let them let them think that there were setting the lighting or something in be shooting. I remember I did it and I felt like this was rea- this was I did a seri- in Chicago. I did series of lottery commercial. which which actually I was I was I was the star of it was kind of like Chicago? Yeah it was it was it was Illinois. State lottery and one of them had Chicago Blackhawks. I don't my mom was of the next year working with whatever the fuck is but he was really really sweet guy but he was just used a hockey player. He doesn't really know how to do things and they were off shooting some like I because you're shooting couple of different things in west and they were just off shooting him doing some copy. Yeah you know like if you buy a lot you know scratcher and turn in your scratch or you might get tickets to a hockey game or something like that and he's doing it and somebody comes over neither the client watch call me because it's it's not a good rate breath and I went over and I looked and he's and he's like he was lost and you're doing voiceovers and they say they want more smile. They want smile. I said you really physically you can't see it but you physically smile and it sounds like this is this is me saying without a smile this saying with a smile your voice changes and you can hear the smile is just mile through the whole thing and he did it in my God. That's perfect and I was like it made me feel like it's such a simple thing that I've learned from standing for Mike Phone. Somebody saying like more smile and go like A. I guess it just means Smile Bullshit. Yeah that does work. It's just little tricks and also people who aren't actors. Get them on the first. Take Yeah be ready to go. Don't waste any I remember. I did a movie with Carol Burnett and Craig Nelson now Craig Nelson incred Craig Robinson and they were doing a scene and it was they were improvising and it was the hersal and it was freaking Lookin hilarious brilliant points. What do I have to do to you for you to get you into a coffin today. She was buying her own coughing and then they're shooting the scene and it's an hour later and it's all gone. It's all gone. You don't even bring them in until it's lit and then tell them your role right right right yeah yeah yeah. It's the best stuff yeah and then there are actors who actually can do that. Yes I mean these. Two could do it for sure right right right should have done it. Yeah Person Magic like I said before the first time you say it. You're probably GONNA say it the best yeah and the person that's going to hear it is going to hear it the best and and react to it the best yeah so it's. I don't like I don't want to overplay to me. It's always do like talking about sex after after attack. What's Yeah Sweaty Yeah. I'm sweaty too. You know it's Nice but even to talk about it. It's like it's magic in the third question is what. Have you learned what he Alec. What have you learned out of this whole Jane Lynch Journey. Most of of everything doesn't matter yeah you know the meaning we put on things and the way we have something in the loss column column in the win column or this was. This was a failure but this was a success at a none of it means anything. I wish I had known that younger yeah but you know you learn it when you learn it and it it kinda just happened organically. I really don't care yeah. I don't have great identification or need for for particular outcomes yeah. It's really just all fallen away and I'm very grateful for it because I'm so much happier. Yeah and it's not like ecstatic. It's just kind of it's like well. After I got divorced. it was that there was kind of a I went through. I was blissed out for about six months and I didn't realize realize how oppressed I had felt and that's Kinda stayed with me yeah kind of it's a beautiful kind of equanimity yeah that it's like. I needed that it was it was really tough time yeah and I almost needed that punch me in the face in order to go you know sometimes it's like you need you need to be punched in the face and I think to as you get older too you become I mean I'm not I'm not religious so I don't think I'd what the time I got at the time I got yeah and that puts a urgency on it like people that think that like you know to not have a religion is somehow meaningless. No I think it actually imparts a way more meaning on every second of every minute every day without getting too worked up about and yoga as I look back sometimes and I mean I look back and a lot of what I WANNA. I WanNa ask myself is what were you afraid of. Yeah like even down to like when kids were mean to like. I mean I'm a large person. I didn't suffer a lot aww bullying but there are moments that are still in my fucking mind about when that kid said that thing to me and I backed down and thinking back like what was I afraid of why why didn't I say fuck you and then you take that into show business. Why did I take that from that person. Why wasn't why didn't I say I knew at the time it was wrong. Why did I take it. Why didn't I say no. This is not right. I'm not GonNa do this and it's was afraid that I break a bone was very I would die never work again. I think so I think it is there. was something deep down inside. It's always life or death in our in our cycle. When I look back on anyone anyone particular one none of it was going to happen now none of it like if I stood up to that kid in school he would have. You'd hit me he would hit. I've been hit. It's not the end of the world and I've never been fired but if I was fired it wouldn't be the end of the world you know through that process as I've gotten older to one thing that and I love this about the professional mean now is.
"j. jane" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"You're trying different. Things and it's not working. It's it's always it's always like it's always in my mind like yeah that could that could happen yeah and and there's nothing you can do you know but it is like. I would suck yeah and you could be plowed over by a bus to the possibility of your brain brain going bad yeah. It'll be a little greater so you know and I'm going to be a commercial for transcendental meditation right now but I do. TM and I it's like I don't have a depressive nature but there is a a lightness in my life because I think it's because had that been. I've been doing it now for about a year but I used to to do it in the nineties to and then I stopped and I picked it up again. I won't why did I stop doing this but there's something about it that in finding that what they call the transcendent in place but really it's about dropping and you don't have to get rid of your thoughts. That's not what it is but it's you just let everything be. It's the most free giving a meditation technique I've ever seen but it it. I've heard really great things from people who have depressive nature's about how it kind of releases them It's brain training scientific evidence. I never have really given a good charge. Meditation always seems like Oh that'd be something pretty good and I don't know for some reason I mean you know we'll see. Maybe maybe maybe you made this change everything message. I'll change my named. Sri Something so you are an out. Yes indeed lesbian. XFO Oh symbol woman yes indeed was there at age at which you kind of started get no notion yeah yeah as soon as I B. We came name God. I knew it all along but I didn't know. The name was more interested in the girls in school but in my brain I wasn't saying Oh there's something wrong with yeah. I knew that I had crushes a neighborhood ladies but I didn't know they were crushes. It was just in love with them. Then you get to be about twelve or thirteen and there's a word word for it and also I'm noticing. I don't WanNa go out with Jimmy. I don't WanNa be have a boyfriend. I WANNA have a girlfriend. Oh boy and it was a name for it. I found out there was the name for it and I was like remember how you found that out. Yes I was hanging out with the Isaacs twins. They work on a dark influence. They were kind of mischievous those twins my mother would say stay away from those twins. They said they were in fort. Lauderdale on vacation and there were guys who walked up and down the beach holding hands and it's called gay and I went inside of course I am the the male the female version of that wow now and I thought oh. It's like a disease yeah so yeah. That was a tough thing. I do wish that it wasn't a tough thing but it wasn't that awful for me. I ended up being in theater and initiators just teaming with the gays no kidding to to whenever I do whenever I've had to like hosted political political fundraiser always here in. La I always like to say like hello queers Jews because it's always liberal you set McFarland once said a democratic thing. I hello fellow abortion enthusiasts so did you you. What did you like date boys to a little bit not much not end me at all. It's almost better exactly when I would be going to like a dance with the guy because I wanted to go to the dance. Show almost throw up going honey. Do this body would not let me do it but I did it anyway yeah yeah and so he went to college downstate Illinois. Stay stay right in the center right Bloomington North Bloomington normal yeah. It's probably you you and then David Foster Wallace David Foster. He talked there he did yeah. I did know that I think I think even that's where he was when he died. You sure I wasn't University of Illinois. No it was it. Is You really you think I would know that I thought he was pretty amazing and you were walking around. I'm thinking you were the most famous ever and what was college like down there. It was great because I started. I didn't go into theatre immediately because my parents told me in. You'll never get a job in that. So why don't you major mass communications. It's theater adjacent ride sure and then by the time I'm a sophomore. I'm doing plays and I'm not going to any classes and so I had to. I changed my major without them. Knowing I got a tuition who wishes waiver my parents didn't have to didn't have to know that you're not paying from well. They were they were paying for it but they were very happy that they didn't have to pay for my tuition and I told Oldham. I didn't tell them was because I was a major told him I auditioned for it. They didn't connect the dots at chain and then it turns out. They really didn't care. They weren't paying that much attention and it was a bigger deal to me. Were you a good student. Once I got into what I I would have guessed that also just in high school that I was not a good student. You weren't Cassisi plus used. You know excellent seems like something that you kind of Oh. Thank you not academically. They'll but once I got into might theater stuff I I got for the last two years of college I in straight as every semester before that I was you know see but so my a great. GPA when I left was like three point three it wasn't as out of four. It wasn't as high as it would have been had. I've been focused on what on really one theater the math mind. I don't have a science mind and I I iced struggled through all of that struggled and cheated to be act so really when you got was was that Isu is at being in college. I think like okay acting. That's what I WanNa do this yeah absolutely and there's a great theater department at Isu in fact a lot of Steppenwolf people. went there like Laurie Metcalf Metcalfe and Tom Irwin publicly people you don't know but anyway I ran a lot of people who know the names that will yeah I think I think that's a very common especially mid western thing you don't you. You have all this stuff in yeah you have you have we are and then but you don't it isn't until you get out of the town that you realize that somehow the universe gives you permission to be like. Oh Yeah I do like that and I really WanNa pursue that because I I mean I I've talked about this before but the notion of being from York Ville Illinois and saying I'm going to be in show business and whether that means even and to me that could have meant being a guy yeah. Did you know you want it to be. I knew I wanted to be. I knew I wanted to do something funny. I knew I wanted to do something created then I was I was afraid to act and I also to quite frankly had not been encouraged very well not my mom my parents my mom and my Stepdad and my and my dad to they were very sort of laws as fair my mother my mother early on I think ah explicitly was sort of you know like I like the idea behind every police force which they don't they sort of forgotten this but this is the the mission statement of the police is supposed to be that they're working towards their own obsolescence and to me. That's it's always kind of been. What parenting is your work and you. You are working as hard as you can to make yourself useless to this creature that you've devoted your life to write. My mother explicitly said that edit you know to US early. I want you to do whatever you WANNA do. As long as you're happy go behind which which everyone to do I think when she got towards the empty nest she started was like wait a minute here somebody you. WanNa get back here but so but I wasn't really sure what that was and I was in plays and the play's in our school and I would add there was spring director Default Director English Teacher Guidance Counselor and I would I would ask the main guy in charge of the guidance counselor. Why are these place so stupid. I mean they were like Martin Lewis Movies. Oh yeah it was one called boys and and ghouls together that was around the place you've Halloween. Yes nothing no pippen. No whose life is in any way the dumbest most can't even like not even our town been like the music man and he's like we tried to do serious plays and nobody liked it like okay. You know it's like the beginning not just who I'm sure of probably understanding it or not giving a shit and I was so I went out for all the place. I don't remember exactly what point I think it was like my sophomore play into the next one and there was this the next play was there was a part that was kind of like and I mean in this is completely incorrect but I mean basically the that's the way these things were. There was like a Swami really like a swamp and I was like the main comedic partner and I could do it I did it. I knew I nailed it. I was like fuck yeah. I'm the fucking swannee now I go to look at the when they post the parts and I'm sort of like norm. The Guy that works at the office and I've always been self possessed enough to make a fucking beeline for the guy the cast this thing and say what the fuck yeah and he says well he said yeah you were really good at that part you better than the kid that I gave it to you said and in fact he said like in all the years. I've been doing this. You're the best natural actor I've ever worked with. He said you don't Egos you. Don't need training you. Just you just from scratch. You're just the best but last year Mister Barone said you and Julie Craft through a bit of a disruptive influence backstage meaning. We had fun meaning. We enjoy each other's company by the stupid play and joked around and had fun because we were fucking theater kid and he said so. I decided like Nick I'll give you this role and if you if you show that you can really commit to fucking Ding Dong Dell or whatever the fuck it was and he was like you could really commit to this. Yes you could do the next time we can. Maybe give you bigger role and I said well. Thank you very much but I'm not GonNa do this. You can find somebody else to play Bob. What's they were self possessed and never did another plate for them because fuck fuck me for been like a quiet..
"j. jane" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"I wasn't aware if it getting any traction or anything. I felt like Oh yeah that's my my my sword and sorcery a Falcon crest yet I watch. Hbo I felt embarrassed. Kills them pleasure like some dirty soap opera with lots of titties about you know about how people with swords and magicians shifts and then it's it blows on and then as it went on it was an it's in this is is like it's not the only thing television supposed to do but it's one of the most powerful things television can do which is separate. You give you an absolute salute vacation from yourself. Yes you sit there and you go somewhere else. Assume you don't think about yourself and there were so many times at the end of that show and the only the one that was really liked. It was breaking bed where I get to the end of it and then it was only certain episodes. I was one of those people with breaking bad. It's like Oh known episode about his married. Ah Why isn't anyone getting her head cut off but but in game of thrones do we get to an episode and I would be mad yeah like a baby that had its bottle taken away like I want more Willie.

Is it still the same now or has it kind of as Dolton. Change is is completely changed now much poor we were really wight. It's all African American but it's it's you know when you hear about the south side of Chicago in the violence a lot of it down and because because the south side in our lifetimes is really has really transitioned from being well the white flight yeah it again reporting was white flight and then it just it kept the going Alex even the farm fields you keep running away from each other yeah and what was your what was uh-huh many kids in your three kids in my family an older sister. Julia younger brother Bob and we grow up in the in we lived our whole life to different houses in Dalton and went to Saint Jude's church hung out with you know it was a pretty small community hung out with the same people like yeah years and yeah not a lot not a lot of people saying oh I want to be an actress or I want to be a singer that how did you how did they. How did you people end up in Dalton. Did they get started in the city. My parents lived on the south side of Chicago. My mother in south shore which is about sixty and south shore and my dad's seventy nine thousand emerald old an actual Irish neighborhood with Irish spirit. He's first generation my grandmother came from Ireland grandfather and everybody around them was Irish you know and then two who'd blocks down this away from them was the Polish neighborhood and Mary. The two shall meet. Yes but they would meet in the Catholic Church. Yes they would they. Yeah share different pairs there was it would also because it was done by your your your block where you live. You didn't get to choose chew so worshiping with the poll I will not worship. Oh Wow yeah well. That's I mean you know now at something good about Catholic authoritarianism exactly it goods you know it was the nation between the Irish and the poll there are more polls in Chicago than Warsaw. That's what I heard that yeah yeah and now there's just no from a few years ago having a for my mom's seventieth birthday renting a house in Michigan what part NPR below just South Holland. I don't remember exactly which town but it was right on the shore and all the houses around there were owned by polls by like the polls that came from police or that like 'cause Chilcot the idea. I feel like the real Polish. There were people there truly are people and I don't know if it's still the same but when I was there people that had lived in Chicago for fifty years and never spoke singlish. Yeah Yeah does not need to know because they stated they had it. They had one. I I worked in film production. One of my first time jobs gobs Mike Ditka absently minded absent minded lead wondered aloud if there was a Polish restaurants still there and this you know ask. Kissy production coordinator sends me to go find it with nothing more than a name Milwaukee Avenue so I'm driving up down looking for four-star Polska on Milwaukee Avenue stop people to ask no one spoke English oh really no vocabulary from people in their twenties to people people in their seventy s Polish Polish on Milwaukee and I did find star Polska and it was delicious eight there for many years did you yes. It's one of the only things I can think Mike Ditka for the five yes. There's a particular Polish Chicago accent to do you know Jeff Mitchell ski a second. He's perfect example. It's Kinda like this. what's his name. Michael mckean did it so well and superior doughnuts. What's the play particular accent. You just nailed it that well that Chicago accent. I can hear I still here when I go to you like when my sister all talk about her dad her dad and I just it's getting used to not hearing it and then sometimes well and then sometimes like that guy can a friend of mine just made fun of me because we're listening to us. There was an old song on the radio and I said she thought like Oh. I think that's so and so and I said like now it's Candy Stanton Candy Stanton Candy Stanton Ship Stanton. Yeah so what what kind of kid were you. I kind of the I mean. I was a kid yeah yeah. I was in middle of my family family. Yeah my family's pretty funny to all of that and they always put a priority. I mean most everybody in the family. Put a priority on even the unfunny ones ends and weren't so funny that they liked that they were surrounded by funding. My brothers very dry funny. It sneaks up on you and my sister's not that funny. She's although good audience since she's unintentionally funny and so is my mother completely unintentionally. Whatever went in her head came out of her mouth and what came out mouse? Sometimes it was mind being laughed I she didn't you didn't notice she's a little spacey and she kind of barely listened and and then her voice. Just Kinda just sir is there a psychological component to that church sounds like there might be one there. I think it was kind of a a not not one hundred percent commitment to hear now yeah yeah a little bit. She's Half Swedish and to win out the Swedish your Swedish take these Goddamn. DNA tests.

You know every every it was well like I mean the two things that we word that we really sort of people because it's the mainly the the the male names that get carried on the family that's right to carry on which was Richter and then and then my you know my grandmother's. Maiden name was lager quiz. She was Swedish issue but so it was German and Swedish. German isn't so funded Germans a little more problematic.

There's such fantastic pictures of my grandmother's siblings who had she she was born in China to Swedish missionary and they had lived around the world and then when the boxer rebellion happened they had elite and like you know my my grandfather who was a physician to was almost murdered and had to be spoken up for an escape in the middle of the night right all these kids. I think there were maybe six of them. They went all over the world and most of them farmed but they ended up all over or Canada all over North American. I think somebody might have gone to England but they were split up. All they all just kind of they didn't stay together this kind of scattered and we're farmers in different things uh-huh and there are pictures of my grandmother and her siblings at things like in the fifties early sixties and it's just these look look at it like a lake house sitting at sitting at a picnic table just like ten plow horse people with the saddest looks like yea. It's summer. It's nice we pig. Just tease yeah yeah. Watch the point. Take no point Sala slog but yes so that's that does sound right at the show my mom that was kind of my moms. Seeing my dad was the happiest guy. Oh wow full corny yeah really good banks. He was a banker like local loan. We never became like a big you know he.

Everybody loved everybody. Everybody just loved him because he was just a nice iceman now yeah and and and I you know like I'm very proud of that. I think is like it's that's like such to just be a nice nice person. Yeah that's kind and makes me happy like holy. Shit visit world me more than my on. My nieces and nephews are just you know a will bring up stories about him. They loved him and he made such an impact on them. it's a really great thing and you know my my sister. I was talking to my brother-in-law. We were on vacation. Yeah we do. We go on vacation. Every year we go to Santa Barbara and we were sitting in the lobby of the hotel waiting for everybody to come because we were going to walk on the beach and my brother-in-law started talk about my dad out and just kind of burst into tears miss him he made such an effect on my brother-in-law who's like you know he's been around for years in the family and just I I just loved him. Was Your Dad one of those people to this like just sort of blessed to be unencumbered by all the mental fucking. Shit and he went through it. He went through. What is a. Qa did yeah there was a you know my grandmother and my grandfather were at each other like viciously the there was a lot attention with the there were like five boys and one girl and my dad was the he was the second born and he was the the the diplomat and and he kept people to their sides over here. You go over there. You know he'd be up in the middle of the night is like a ten year old referee negotiating and he he ended up being that but it didn't encumber him. It didn't make him a bench full or oppressed or I didn't get the childhood he just anyway so great at practice going to let that go yeah some people some people they just get they get the luck of the draw and their serotonin levels they do it because there's certainly like with me. It's just because I kind of had that role. I was sort of the middle and was the peacekeeper and all of that Kinda Anna stuff when things were tough but yet but no it. I I've always had a brain. That's like I started to win. Things are good in my life. Be Like ah all that all the categories. I used to worry about you know Romance Job Future. We you know money. They're they're all good and yet. I still feel like what's the fucking point of yeah and that's where the meds come in good yeah. We are born with a certain nature yeah and they're you know fighting. That nature is is fruitless. I think the it's the acceptance you know like I I I don't. I don't get depressed. Knock on wood but I just did but there. I know some people who do you know what you have a depressive nature and it doesn't define who you are. No and there are remedies just like if you had diabetes you would take insulin. You're going to take a little whatever in what you know what for me a number of years ago. It just started. We're getting better. I'm still on medication down medication but I've been on medication forever and it was kind of like it was okay and I don't know what happened whether it was just age or something shifted something popped better but I still you know probably one of my most profound fears is at my brain goes bad again and you know when you don't have control over your moods you did it feel so powerless and and you know like when you're trying to get things right..
"j. jane" Discussed on The Three Questions with Andy Richter
"Hello everyone welcome to another episode of the three questions with Andy Richter as usual. I'm Andy Richter later. Sorry guys but I'm excited because balancing out the word in the punch bowl is the fruit the punchbowl Jane Lynch. Isn't that high sweetie. I love Jane Lynch every don't like you. Oh sure really yes. I mean likely find people that are like people. You don't jealous people that don't know I mean I'm sure of course there's people in your life that don't like you. I mean I know plenty of but I mean is there. Anybody like do you find yourself like is that there's people like. I don't care for her work right. Oh you that you would hear about that. I wonder if I would hear about it. 'cause I don't Yeah Yeah Yeah. I don't here but it's not like on the street and says you know what I don't hear that would give them big old fucker finger yeah yeah. I guess the reason I said it's because I am aware of it because I'm on social media I. I'm on social media. You people you read. Sometimes I employ indeed. I do you know what I just in the last three weeks. I took a twitter break and got rid of my the APP in everything I've done a couple of. I have done that if you could just gets to be. It's like I'm wasting acing my time and this is also corrosive. It is corrosive and anybody can say anything yeah so every once in awhile I will look at the comments and sometimes there the the the I'll be called a dike or something about. I have a penis which I really wish I did so I'm aware talked about this severe penis envy but they're ugly but they are pretty fun yeah well. There are some that are ugly uncircumcised. Are It's not fair but that's that's an it's a once it's out of its socket. Did the same yeah the lesbian who knows this stuff. I know I know I know ah I know you. We've talked to the forever yeah yeah and yeah but no I. They are pretty fun. I mean and I I mean just like watching TV something to do with one of your hands funny you know there's no hard for us to do is dig in right exactly No. It's just kind of like it's almost like You know fidget spinner yeah exactly It's almost like it's so weird because we're women. We don't not just because it's hard to reach but we don't I don't I mean I'm sure there's some women and everybody in my circle. No nobody like master bates watching television like it's nothing it's there's there's a biological need. The guys have because of that. My friend says it's external humming is right there and also it's. It's it's just driven more than ours. Ours is yeah well Yeah I. I think there's the biological express your genetic material. As much as you can sure is the male thing yeah whereas female while she can't like spread her genetic material to six different places in one day. No of course you know which I mean. That's quite a man do that but you know it's it's a different print the propagation of the species of different thing. It's it's more choosy. s more like this is going to take some time and this is going to fuck up the rest of my life exactly so it was at that point you were just making about spreading your genetic material. I just read something about a doctor who was a fertility would be implanted his Owino so there. He's got all of this progeny. That's so crazy crazy and then Jeffrey Epstein to had like this fantasy fantasy. It was like for real yeah on a ranch in New Mexico yeah but he wanted to propagate. He thought he was like the ideal that uber human wanted to propagate himself that that's like a deep deep deep primitive thing that's in the mail the Spiezio but it's under control and most guys over civilized and this doctor the yeah the thing about like Epstein like okay. That's a hedge fund asshole. That's probably you know probably he's just a big grownup baby bully and also sick yeah yeah deeply deeply right. This doctor must have had a thing because you don't you don't go if you're the kind of person that's going to say. I had the opportunity to slip my seed to a bunch of unsuspecting women and make a bunch of my own progeny. You just stumble into you know. What do you call it fertility service. You don't go into that specialization. I found myself L. somewhere. Maybe subconscious to give them a little break on this and maybe it's not even a conscious subconscious. You find yourself there. That's why a lot of crazy. narcissists assists are therapists. Yes Oh it's healed itself and they don't even know it. I have I would say I have two friends who have among the craziest parent stories and their parents are there. Those are pissed like it. You can which is really something for somebody like me who's been to therapy and and and who believes in it so much to realize like. Oh my God this person that's helped me so much might secretly be a monster right complete mess and making everyone in their life. Miserable had a therapist just adored and she is. She's an odd duck. She holds an odd duck but she was really good and she was compassionate and an empathic and maybe not in a real life. I mean she had some. She's you know there were shadow edges but yeah. I think that when you're drawn into that there just seems that there's there's gotta be some Wacky nece. Oh you know I mean corrupt. Cops Yeah Crime I'm calm yeah yeah and it's like I'll be a cop but you know what I come and then I'm not necessarily just interested in the one side of the deal right you know and I just I. I think it's kind of a natural thing where there's a topic that you're interested in and if you're a not yeah you might go. Maybe I'll help other nut salads and people who are hungry for fame that WanNa go into acting and the great thing about that is if you don't have any talent. It's it's you can see it's evident but then you know now when this whole social media culture where an influencers you you don't have to have any talent just have to appeal to something to to maybe a thousand people and then that'll become two thousand a million and you're a year in Youtube influencers although there is something to that I don't understand it. It's all like it's you know. There's people that are that are movie. Stars Yeah and you and you look at them and you're like. Oh yeah that person that's a fucking movie star and they might not even be that great as an actor. They might do the same thing over and over and over again. I know there were there all day for that absolutely that person doing that thing again. He Brad Pitt the film. Even the what I call his dark years when he wasn't a good actor Maria I think fame overwhelmed him yeah and it got in the way of his ways got up got a light in this latest movie once upon a time when a satisfying movie is so good yeah so I was I did end up being a little bit and it's a common critique of that. We know what was the point of all of it for me. It was retelling that story. I wanted it yeah. You're still alive live. She had perhaps had the baby she had the baby. Yeah and I don't know I kind of like it was the Anti Christ all the Manson family only get a favor that killed in the know and what is weird to the I did have a problem because I don't just look at the women in that we're in the Manson family as as just evil killers yeah. I think they were sad. Lost Souls not. I'm not saying they're innocent. Say Without Charles Manson. I don't know if any of those woman women would have stabbed evil all in Carnet in the movie yeah there was like they were all bad sia and I don't know that I could ever write a movie where very very heroic man very heroic iconic. White man kills a woman by bashing her head repeatedly into things. Is this the Brad a pit that does spoiler alert people I should. I should have said that I yeah no. He kills one of the I don't know I found it so satisfied. It's you I I just to me. It was like okay I know I felt like the women were killed with so much more vitriol than the man was how we didn't you know. I'm not a very good family but I also love. I don't hate what's the name of the Bruce Lee. I didn't hate and I understand people are pissed off that he he presented Kinda like this Egomaniac care but it was also satisfying to see him beat them. Just the Geez throw into a car. That was fantastic mistake that I mean. I felt a little guilty about that. I'm like is this. Is this colonialism working in me. I'm just game of thrones so I my ability ready to stomach of violence and even just like there would be raping girls in the background. I'd be like Oh right right desensitized and it's also so another time well. The first thing I know people are beefing about it but personally is treated like a deity. So is it really so bad to have one like thing where like maybe maybe he was a dick so what move bio-pic but that's the thing about the social media cultures. Everybody wants to write the moving. Everybody wants to write Quentin Tarantino movie or they want to even right like a marvel movie or they want to be like pizza that they ordered all the ingredients and it's like Oh. Oh I don't like I don't like olives. Well then don't move. He's not a pizza. You remember the days when you go to a movie and you just accepted. It and that's what I did with a game of thrones I didn't read. I watched the whole season the whole show. This is your first time started season one episode one and I went all the way through and I was absolutely riveted and did not look up one actor on the Internet. I did not have a problem with any of the episode just like I don't like what they did. I the problem with anything yeah just one hundred percent accepted it and what it relief to watch television. Watch move away used to which as you suspend your disbelief that I started I started watching that thing just out of curiosity because it was just such a different thing for Hbo to do and I just happened into it like. Oh that thing of seeing ads for that I'LL L. Watch and I watch it from the beginning from the very beginning did yeah in real time and and and I was like the first season I I felt like a guilty pleasure me..
"j. jane" Discussed on The Mortified Podcast
"Rule of Jane. Austen fandom never go fo- pride and prejudice. So I'm Jan. I grew up in West Virginia. But as a teenager I read a lot of books and most of them were from the nineteenth century. So as a result, I had this vision of love that was kinda straight out of a Jane Austen novel by the time, Jen, enter Thais, cool, her love nineteenth century, lit was setting her part from her peers. So in high school I, I wouldn't say that I fit in easily. I also wasn't a total outcast, but I was definitely shy. I mean, honestly, I was a lot more comfortable. Just staying home reading Madame Bovery or something like that. In fact, it showed up, inter fashion, I had a lot of long kind of florally dresses. I had this one blouse that I still remember, you know, super Lacey and I had this cameo broach that I wore way too often. I'm sure I aspired to look like a true Victorian, and that wasn't easy and West Virginia and it showed up in her musical taste, while my peers were listening to eighties. Pop not that I didn't listen to that, but I was really into classical music. And I developed this huge fascination for Mendelssohn. I thought he was the best and I loved his music, so romantic all of which may dating or as she might have called it courtship that much harder. I honestly, think that kind of having these Victorian novel narratives in my head and trying to fit boys into that was kind of safety valve for me because I think I was really afraid of a lot of that stuff. And so yet that made my dating life, rather complicated and mostly non existent..

I mean, you really need to listen to her if you ever can because she's, she's fabulous. But you've got a book your latest book, which I did read called rhinestones on my flip flops. How did you come up with that? I had more fun with that book. I thought about how life truly is a series of flip flops in how we handle changes and surprises in the unexpected. And so I always say when life flips don't be a flop, put rhinestones on the flip flops, and then you can help other people handle their flip flops because gale, you know how we are as women. I, I look for those wild women. I call them the women of wisdom, have a section on that in my book, but my goodness when things happened in my mother was so sick or my my son, I was concerned about him. He call these wonderful women that are older and wiser, and you just sit at their feet and say, help help me. I've got lip flop and they'll always send you off with them. I call it the sparkle in Jain, and I think that is. The greatest gift we can give to each other is just listening and grieving with people. I mean, on three doors down from our drug store in, we had a terrible loss. The guy that we all adore nice gun the world and his wife found him. He passed away in their kitchen that morning and this whole community. It's a big giant flip-flop. I'm just telling you, we're all grieved, and we all went to the drugstore and just cried, you know, I mean, that's what you do when you love people you..
