How to get quoted in the media
"240 have you ever looked at? Jane or what an article and wondered me how other Founders or CEOs are getting quoted in these stories. It's probably not a happy accident. It's probably a PR person placing them that way there but wage it doesn't mean that's the only way to get in there. So today I'm going to give you some Insider tips on how to get placed in the media as a thought leader a, enter an expert may want to be considered a thought leader. Then you have to prepare yourself in this situation to get quoted or to get asked for expert insights. So these are the few tips that might help you get started and get positioned for this kind of right now first. You have to have your basics down first prepare a brief bio that highlights your expertise and why you're an expert so think of yourself in the biggest form possible how many years of experience what are your degrees? What are Awards You've Won or big clients that you've had. I know it's tough sometimes to put yourself in the shoes of how you want to be viewed as a professional, but if you can't see yourself them, Nobody else will make sure you note, you know, any author articles or Publications and this is all intact so it should be maybe two paragraphs of a bayou and it's always nice to have like a bio and a short bio depending on the different rules for Publications or broadcast. They'll be able to publish one of the other second have a really nice high birth had shot and a lifestyle shop ready to go. So headshot is basically, you know, the face face forward had shot that you might have white background smiling recognized maybe up to your bust and then a lifestyle shot is more like, you know, you laughing or it looks like they're working or you're walking, you know, it could be anything. You can be enjoying a hobby but not sure you're the only one in the shot and it's high resolution which basically is 300 DPI dots per inch you might want to have both of those handy so that you can have a little perspective and if you want more I mean 3 a.m. I've had shots is always a good number to have I think investing in this is really great because it always makes you look much better and positions you as really the expert that you are. So the first thing to do when you're getting ready for this kind of activity is kind of set up some goals and I would set up like a monthly time to go over topics because this is a way of you being relevant and timely issue with what's going on in the news and what's going on in your industry. So I would maybe take a few maybe a couple hours like the day before a month starts or the very beginning of the month to outline like these are off to five topics that I might be talking about this month. And so figure out your position being able to talk about relevant current events is key. But what is your position on those current events? And the more second thing is you could say the more controversial things you could say about it. The more likely it is that you are going to be leveraged as an expert. So have something really insightful. To say have a solution and if you want to Stir It Up Stir It Up know how far you're willing to go and obviously the more you're willing to bend the rules. The more exciting that is odd for people to listen to and include in their stories next whatever three to five topics that you've kind of come up with developed your can response or statement. And so this will serve as a foundation for when you're ready to respond to something that hits the news you can grab a statement and then make a few tweaks to it and then send it off and that way it like reduces the amount of time that you have to spend in the moment. If you see an article and you're like, oh I want to respond to it. It's already it's already ready to go. You might just have to like edit it for like five ten minutes. Lastly you made me want to make a list of reporters or Outlets that you think are most relevant to you that particular month or you've been thinking about it or you really want to be an expert or position. They're dead if it's broadcast or news make sure you're watching The Daily News and that you respond right away, but identify 5 to 10 people who might be controlling editorial content. So that's typically Anna broadcast. It's the producer and those emails are found directly on those news websites, if it's written then you might want to look at the T. I see who's the editor-in-chief or the content director or on the digital media director or the online media editor. So you might want to have a few different contacts and get this is the moment where you create relationships. So what you could do proactively if you spend one or two hours doing this at the beginning of the month. I promise that you'll have some kind of result where you'll feel good about spending the time. It'll definitely be worth your time. A little bit ski if you're a really really really, you know want to get a placement but let's say you just want to put yourself out there and you do it every month and you kind of see it as a newsletter and you add it to something about doing almost like a newsletter distribution or something that at the beginning of the month. What you could do is say hey, you know, my name is John Smith and I'm an expert in artificial intelligence package this month. I see there's a lot of interesting Trends and these were the things that I'm talking about. If you're writing a story. Please contact me and I'll be happy to make some commentary and of course you're going to make a case for yourself a little bit more than what I decide but like also why they should contact you because you're an expert in Ai and you've worked with you as many companies and then you list those three little bullet points that you've outlined earlier and your position on them. And if it's interesting enough, they might want to pick it up and write it so it could be an activity you do every quarter every month, but then them Emails from you on a regular basis, they'll start to get to see your name. You keep calling yourself the same thing. So consistency is very important. You'll one month be an AI expert and the next next month be an expert in economics. You can't do that. Make sure it's consistent your branding for your personal self means to be consistent with what you're saying and what you're pitching.
Yup.io: Build Influence and Earn Money for Rating Content
"So tell us near what is Yup? Yup A is a second layer social capital. That reward users based on the engagement in opinions that they give on. Jane and through this actually reflects and represents influence and social capital offer all participants for all data points all you are else across the web. So it's really a I. think a lot of people will understand what social capital is currently. I happy to jump into that. So essentially, the way it works is that Yup is tracking your activity across the web. You rate things when you like them when you follow certain users is tracking those actions in actually do them directly from our products for from the sites, the platforms that you love at every post, all that kind of stuff you're tracking in your scoring. Exactly and what other influential users engage in a similar way they like the same piece of content they support the same user they You know they think or rate a certain pieces of content or our are Asian in a certain way that you actually get rewarded in tokens and you actually build influence for yourself in a particular category, and so you know just to just to take out back a bit really Yup, is predicated on one important site, and it's that influence will be one of the fastest growing asset classes of the twenty s that market is highly inefficient so that you are influence. Online has become this ridiculously valuable thing from economic stamp in a social standpoint, but the actual market itself and and the way that functions is highly inefficient still, and we see this inefficiency in sort of two main ways that I think people understand. One is influence largely illiquid. So if you're a small time influence and let's say you have eight thousand followers, even you care about your and you wanna be able to monetize that but it's very easy for you to do show do. So that is even more the case for curator's rather than breeders, and this is an important aspect of what we do which. If. You're liking things. If you re tweeting things if you're the one who's rating things, there is close to knowing for you'd actually be able to monetize not. And we think that that's really corden problem here on the second that is largely missed priced. So you know from a market standpoint, the metrics step determine the value of influence on mine are enormously inaccurate. So actually looking trying to measure social value based on the amount of likes that something has received their followers or stream counts or views is proven to be incredibly inaccurate and. Misleading that most of US treat those as being much more true when valuable than they actually are, and that that is sort of leading to a lot of the problems that we see around insolence online. So. Fake News Mission Yeah E. IT almost makes me think of like the black box or the kind of the shrouded val behind like advertising analytics right? So if I'm an advertiser. I just have to trust essentially what the platform that I'm advertising on tells me what they, how many views I got how long the average view wasn't all that kind of stuff but it's like behind a walled garden of data and so is Yup, kind of coming at it saying like, Hey, we're going bring down the whole vale in everybody's GonNa see everything. Regarding the engagement of a certain piece of content or something like that might on the right track nothin'
Interview With Carla Hassan
"Welcome Carla to the CMO podcast and congratulations the new city CMO. So happy to have you on his, you're just promote it and you were promoted about the time city named its first woman CEO. Jane Fraser did you to celebrate in any interesting or unusual way during Cova? We didn't well, we we We did celebrate over over a phone call. I am a huge fan of Jane's ever since I met her a couple of years ago. I just and I'm so thrilled for her I really really enthralled for her and I'm I'm honored to be working for her and alongside her and. And Look I think. This is just one of those times when you just really proud to to work at the company that you work at bright because the the the. The fact that we are putting our values to action by you know by by appointing Jane the CEO of the company is just such a huge huge nod to the wonderful leader that she is the greatest compliments that she's had and then also values we have as a company around diversity inclusion. I couldn't be more thrilled. I. Couldn't be more thrilled. We're going to get into that later but did you do any celebration with your family or friends? Yeah. Well, you know it's funny I actually. Back to your first question about whether I celebrated with Jane. So my announcement came out a believe it was on publicly on Wednesday and then hers was on Thursday and I wanted to email her and say, you couldn't give me twenty four hours to like celebrating. I. I thought that would be the right thing to do. But anyway she would have she would have gotten a kick out of if I'd actually said that you know we did celebrate at home we have a thirteen year old and I think for her it was a moment of pride in fact, I'll tell you. The week before that, we were driving in the car I was with her and I? And I saw the note that came out the president that came out to to the company about promotion and I. I kind of choked up a little bit and I handed her the phone. She said, Mama. What's wrong and I said nothing's wrong north and sometimes you know your life you know things happen in your life in a good way after you've worked so hard and I had her the phone and she read it and she said she just kind of looked at me. She said, you know Mama I am really proud of you and that was. Honestly, enough celebration for I mean. Obviously, we've got another marketer in the household who was also a very, very happy for me. So we just kind of had it real a quiet. Celebration at home. Sweet story what what? What was it about the letter that moved you? You know I think we all worked so hard right I mean we all just worked so hard and some days we we slug it out and leadership is hard and marketing his hard and. You know I've. I've had ups and downs my career I mean I started off at Kellogg's it at Pepsico and I took very traditional consumer packaged goods, marketing routes, and I kinda knew really where I was headed and then I decided to the one time in my life that I actually made a took a risk in my career. It was such a public failure right and so for me it. Took a long time for me to get when you went to toys R. us. That's when I went to are. Yeah and you know I would not change it for the world. It has opened up so many doors for me and it has taught me so much about the kind of leader I want to be the kind of team I want to be around and the kind of. The way I want to I, want to sort of lead teams in and Dr Visions but. Say was hard right I. Mean it was hard and you know in in the at the risk of being vulnerable, that was not a not a not an easy time for me personally for my daughter to see that and for my my parents who live in Lebanon to see that you know for me it was it just it wasn't a fun moment in my life, and so I've worked really hard to kind of come back from that and so I think it wasn't necessarily the. The words, per se but it really was kind of the moment for me. That was just like all right. You know what a few years after that happened. I worked hard and you know and here I am and so I think that that's more what it was from than than than specific words. Yeah. We're in a very big role now internally externally but that decision of Toys R. US to me is one of the more interesting decisions you made in your life so I wanna come back to that. The podcast. So I've got a lot to say about that. Super before we get too much further into this, this podcast is a first. You're the second member of your family to be interviewed by me. We released their husband Tareq podcast in July. Of course is a CMO at PETCO and our viewers or listeners can hear this but you have a beautiful dog taking a nap behind you on this new. So it's a dog starts to make some noise just bring him in. No, forgive me if he does I, guess. So, did you listen to your husband's podcast? I did I thought he did a really nice job. You know it's funny Jim. I. Don't know if you well, you did you did have conversation about this. You know we tend not. We have in our entire career tended not to talk about. The fact that we're married and in fact, I would tell you that there are so many people in. That will will hear me you mentioned my husband's name not saying who he is and and will will say wait a minute what that Tareq is your husband hold on a second. So we been pretty deliberate about. You know not. Not, sort of mean public about it but I do you know we follow each other? We do. We do love to hear what each other stay and and so I thought that was actually a really thought. He did a really nice
Willow Smith Calls Out Jada's Parenting Style
"Are you running for some daily pop? Cuz we've got some Smith family drama for you today. Willow is coming after her met her mother questioning her parenting skills at her own red cable. Are you kidding me? This is Jaden was harder on her than on her brother Jaden during a new episode of red table. Talk on Facebook watch Willow shares just how differently they were treated great up. There is a difference between how black moms will treat their daughters and their son. Oh, oh my goodness, right? Let's go back through is true something as simple as just like getting up at the right time. It would be like you might like to maybe like, oh no school school is about to be you better get dressed. We need to get it would be like wage in my room like, okay got it. But then Jane is actually like nothing listed. Are you ready to and he'd be like, maybe one moment off? Thank you. She is asking for a debt said it's right there honey you to me where you have a black bar? But you don't question her parenting in front of everybody. I do think Jade is one of those people that's very open communication. Tell me how you feel kind of mother one hundred percent. But I also think in black families and I will save this growing up in a big family and the hood a lot of times moms and parents are harder on girls because there's this thing ingrained in your head that if something happens with your daughter your daughter gets pregnant or becomes a birth mother. It's a direct reflection on you. So a lot of times like people don't even care about the father they like, oh near that boy knocked her up, but the mother there's a lot of shame that goes on the parents and growing up my mother never talked to me about the birds and the bees at all. My sister got schooled in it from the time. She was thirteen years old and it's weird that that's how it works like, yep. Just saw this whole thing happened with t i, yeah and how crazy everybody was like, oh my God. This is so insane. Meanwhile, I'm like, oh that happens. All those on you know, I think has a lot to do with also on the Note just you know, as a mother myself. I feel like for a woman you have to be very strong. Like I wanted to be so secure in her self-confidence seems to be like the most important thing you can instill in my daughter and being confident means like you get up you show up on time. You work hard you put in your best and you feel good about it. And so like I can see that and it's so funny that example because literally off hook up Chase from a nap the other day, he's to mind you and I said Chase are you awake? You ready to go? Five more minutes mom and I was like, okay honey UT five more minutes. You need a rest. I don't know if it's just a little boy, but it was just a funny example. I'm like, this is already a happening in my life. And there are only two right I feel like mothers and suck. So that Dynamic is very unique. Like I definitely think that women and parents think that they can be harder on girls because I feel like they think girls can handle it. I feel like with boys. I feel like a mom. I see it with my own mom and my own old dog, like he has always been regardless of what drama or what he's had to go through. He's always sort of Taken extra good care of him. I just feel like if it's a boy and you're a mom you just have an extra soft spot regardless of race or anything like that. I just think moms and sons have a different Bond. It's like dads and daughters. I feel like whatever child you have. That's the opposite gender of you. You are a little bit softer towards I can see that I totally can totally stay. I think the dynamic is now shifting I think with the world shifting and now, you know having to have harder conversations with boys at younger ages kind of the same ones you kind of have a girl about consent and about sex and all of those things. I feel like with everybody being mindful of this patriarchy Society. I think that's going to flip and it's going to change a little bit. Yeah. Yep. Think yeah, I hope I mean I still feel like just because of how I'm positioned. I'm like I already feel like I have to be like, you know, you you fight for what you deserve you are equal to your counterparts, you know, I feel like that stuff you have to like push into daughter still because if you don't if they don't think that going growing up then they accept less than and that's where I feel like we've gotten to the point where we got to where women, you know, they were traditionally taught that it's okay. If a man makes more, you know, if and then finally now we're getting to the other side of that and we just have to keep that momentum going like we're equal. We're all very equal talk to your son and your daughter the same way is what I guess. It's still to me and Society like I'm going to still push up for Chase, but I feel like it's almost a given still for a man to get equal. I mean, I'm still like given like he's going to get it cuz he's got that leg up because he's going to be a man. Yeah and the woman I have to be like make sure you get your your peace Honey Pig. To caution her you have to prepare her for that reality because men don't face that as much which is the problem. I mean, even in our own lives and our own circumstances, we know people that are of different genders and might make more than us or do more than us, but they don't work as much as we do, that's happening right now. So it's just one of those things you just constantly have to be aware of I

"jane i" Discussed on Monocle 24: The Big Interview
"Of the importance of making a plan to vote. So we're registering people were specifically targeting in some states, the lead, Latinas, Como? Have people writing postcards to ten associates or colleagues or? We're doing things to help people talk to climate deniers about why this isn't a crisis and people are asking for more I feel hopeful myself there's been lessons learned in the pandemic as well that pertain to the climate crisis. First of all the need for a strong federal government you know for since Reagan, there's been billions of dollars spent to try to convince the American people that big government is bad very people who need it. The most big government is bad. Well, we need government and we need it number two to be prepared big government that has the capacity on the resilience to address things like pan-demic on the climate crisis, and then listen to experts listened to the scientists. Those are three things that pertain to the climate crisis to. Speaking to an activist in the US, recently described the current protest moment in the United States as one of two angers an anger. The inequality. Injustice and another anger that just seems to want to thwart any progress that wants to cause damage apparently damages. Sake what do you make of this idea of to angers and how healthy is that for a for society? Like the United States. It does feel like an angry time but there is toxic anger and then there's healing anger just like there is destructive flyer that can burn Australia that can burn the Amazon right now is burning northern California and my beloved big Sur the very place where I made the fateful call to. Bill. mckibben Naomi Klein, and any Leonard is now having to be vacuumed because of the fires there's the bad fire but then there's good fire. There's certain things that only grow in the presence of fire after fire has passed number one number two fire cleans out the deadwood. The unnecessary I'm just suddenly I'm thinking of John Lewis. Good trouble could fire. Here's a good fire. People are feeling very a woke and ready and motivated to do something I have never in my eighty two years seen or felt anything like this, and it's very beautiful and encouraging and does not feel like a unique feeling for someone like you who has seen so many and been involved in so many chapters of social upheaval over the past six decades. It does it feels like a turning point. You know the notion of intersection -ality that word which was put out into the universe by Kimberly crenshaw and seemed only a year and a half two years ago as very honorable inside and rhetorical. Now it is being lived. It is being lived people understand that all these the mentality that created the climate crisis, the colonial. sajjan mystic. Sexist xenophobic mentality that the earth is just ours to use. It's an endless pit for our waste. We. Have the right to exploit, it. Like we do women and indigenous people and people of Color. These are all connected all these things and the solutions are interconnected as well at people just get it and the solutions are so Duh. You know creating a sustainable clean energy future creates millions more jobs than fossil fuel industry does and you know what we just have to do is make sure that the fossil fuel workers get trained and paid properly. Fill those jobs, many unemployed people in the US. Now, they can be trained to do these jobs. There's so much that's needed. There's GonNa be more pandemics coming, and there's going to be massive climate disruptions and our country is totally without resilience. Whether it's our sewage systems, our dams, our roads, our bridges, our healthcare system we are not prepared. So one of the things that we are ready to do the minute. Please Scott please that Joe Biden is elected. is to force him to create resiliency in this country. That's what has to happen. Am I realize it's a very precarious business to ask people to gaze into a crystal ball but do you feel given your campaigning in your activism and your support for Joe Biden? Do you feel that he can win? Yeah, absolutely you can. I think there's trickery there's defranchising going on it's know. Trump is making it as hard as possible for people to vote, but people are so angry about that. That they're finding all kinds of ways to do things about it. You know like they were trying to newt her the postal service. Well, people just rose up you know and I don't think they expected how much people love the post office and are fighting to save the post office. It's really it's just at the drop of at a moment's notice eight, hundred protests all across the country is really great. Yeah, I. think that. Joe Biden can be elected if we can get out the vote and Joe Biden's economic proposals, the green economy this idea of building back better which is a slogan of the Biden campaign is pretty central to. I. Think it was back in two thousand sixteen when Hillary Clinton was also proposing a pretty widespread idea of creating jobs as part of the green economy at the time I, recall a big swell of the discussion being. Of workers don't want to train what if we don't want to be told that they have to work in a new industry? How do you bridge those two things? Do you think Jane? Workers in that industrial sector probably want to continue working in that industrial sector. But man, are there things to do and that industrial sector I mean there's nothing wrong with pipelines sometimes, they're used for oil but are also used for drinking water in Flint. and. Our sewage system is pathetic and there's great places all of the United States that had no sewage system. Or running water I mean it's quite unbelievable. There's so much work to do. Worker should be able to to be trained to work in the same sectors they were working in, but instead of fossil fuel, it can be. It can be all the charging stations that need to be put in. It could be a smart energy grid can be retrofitting our pipelines for water and sewage. It can be retrofitting buildings. There's just so many things, but they should have a choice. You see it's been done. It's called a just transition meeting. Fair to transition. Office lawsuit clean renewable economy it's Germany for example, Germany relied so much on coal thirty, thousand coal miners had been switched to another sector. Why did it work smoothly? Because the workers were at the table their unions were the table communities and the environmentalists and the government. Those five sectors were all at the table, and so it got worked out everybody didn't get one hundred percent of what they wanted but they got enough in if they didn't get that last ten percent, they know why so it worked and that's what we have to do. Abide missed Scranton Pennsylvania he's. He's kind of a being.

Jane Fonda has in her own estimation lived an extraordinary life. She was born in New York City in one thousand, nine, thirty, seven start in any fifty films since making her debut in nine, hundred sixty. From the science fiction cult classic. Barbarella to the committee nine to five funders roles of span the gamut of film acting earning her rafts of awards in the process including two Academy Awards for Best Actress. She is however is well known for her activism. She is for performances in film and on television. From opposing the Vietnam War to hosting fundraisers in Hollywood for Black Panther Civil Rights movement from delivering part of her acceptance speech at the nineteen seventy-nine American sign language to highlight the experience of people who are deaf to launch her famous series of home workout videos in the early nineteen eighty s in order to finance the campaign for economic democracy the body she cofounded did to and economic injustice in the US the ways in which he has campaigned diverse. I'm just various as the causes she's become a champion for. And Lost October, she began what she describes as the final chapter of her activism, which began just before her eighty second birthday. Fire Drill Fridays began as a series of climate rallies and protests in Washington DC in which she and some of fellow demonstrators arrested week after week. A consequential presidential election Jane Fonda says that her work in activism is far from done. I spoke to Jane Fonda from her home in Los Angeles for the big. Interview. Janai wants to begin in May after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis the protests demonstrations that. And filled in. So many U. S. cities following that incident. What did you? What was your reaction to them having been at the heart and at the helm of so many protests movements covering such a huge array of issues. Is such span of your life? How did you feel when when people took to the streets following George Freud staff demonstrations, the protests, the uprisings after the protests were thrilling to me. Thrilling, in their breadth and depth and diversity I, mean there's a small town just south of where I'm living. It's all white middle class and they were out carrying black lives matter signs. There's been about this moment that got people out into the streets, not just that they'd been shut off for so long but the pandemic has pulled the band aid off. The, profound systemic injustice and inequality in this country. I don't think people really realized many people. Didn't realize. How Close to the edge, most Americans lives dust, literally paycheck to paycheck and how these are the people that we rely on to keep life going the deliverymen, the postal service of nurses the. The Home Care Workers Etcetera and. There's been a new appreciation I think of the need to address inequality and the need to create good jobs where people in the United States the fact that so many people live in constant anxiety that they won't be able to feed their family. It's inexcusable in country and things have gotten worse as Neo Liberalism has. been at work here in the United. States. So there's that and then. You know when we started for Admiral Fridays in DC we didn't know whether there was going to be traction. I kind of the young people have the sunrise movement in the Fridays for future and extinction rebellion and zero hour, and we need something for all folks. You know it took about three or four took almost a month before we realized holy cow, we tapped into something really important started coming from all over the country they wanted to be told what they can do. They wanted to be told you're something you can do. It's not so difficult. And then to take that next step and put their bodies on the line engage in civil disobedience and risk arrest and it had. Profound. Trench formative effects on people and it seems that had a transformative effect on you to not fair to say, yeah you know in this day and age in your country like in line it's not so easy to have the experience or find a way to put your whole self in alignment with your deepest values, which is what civil disobedience does. It's like stepping into yourself it's very empowering. Now obviously helps to be white and famous. You know the police were told to behave well, five been black would have been quite different, but it was. For historic reasons, most of the people who got arrested were white. There was maybe two handful of many that were ten African. American. People in the course of four months and I understand why? Our. Goal was to reach people who understand that there's a climate crisis understand that it's human created. And just wondering to what to do, and that's what happened and most of them what we asked often we did have any of you ever done this before most hands went up they'd never this is something they've never done. That was really rewarding. You have chronicle all Jane in your new book what can I do my path from climate dispatch to action I thought Jane. At the very beginning of the book you describe the moment when a police officer during the first fire drill Friday's gathering Finally, put your hands behind your back and ties together with some white plastic handcuffs. Could you recall that moment for us and the sensation you had about how the the motivation used had for filed journal Fridays was now translating in a very physical way. Well I have been handcuffed before and put in jail before, but they were metal. And I was younger. Now I'm almost eighty three and they were white and they were painful and they put my arms behind my back and I have shoulder issues. So you know it was hard but I knew why I was there. I knew what I wanted to accomplish I knew there would be a lot of press coverage and my goal was to you know people, we're GonNa Save One god, she's eighty two, and if she can do that, I can do that kind of thing. And And I just I felt so empowered. You know not so empowered when we got to the police wagon and I couldn't get into it because there was nothing to hold onto my hands were behind my back. And was high up and so the officer had to take my fanny and push me into the police question. Was a little unceremonious. On this moment, like the one that you're drawing attention to through fire drill Fridays Jane, the idea of of losing and putting all ceremony to one side is perhaps the least you can do is it fair to summarize it in that way? I wanted to turn eighty three. No, I honored to turn eighty two in jail and I missed it by day wouldn't put me in jail again they did it once and they arrested me four more times and then I got arrested again and I was told if I did I'd be put in jail but they didn't do it because I knew that it we get a lot of attention and the reason the attention is important as I don't need attention for me personally but that it makes people realize the urgency of climate crisis. So little time ten years to cut our fossil fuel emissions in house just an awesome unprecedented.
Why Are Whales So Big?
"This is but why a podcast for curious kids from Vermont Public Radio? I'm the host. Jane Lindholm. On this show you tell us what you're interested in and what your questions are about that thing you're interested in. And we use your questions to guide what we talk about on the show. Your curiosity dictates what we explore. When I was young, I really wanted to be a marine biologist that's a scientist who studies things that live in the oceans and lots of you are interested in marine biology to we've done episodes about fish about why the sea is salty and other things related to oceans like our jellyfish really made out of Jelly spoiler alert they're not. But now we're going to focus on one particular type of animal that lives in the oceans that like me a lot of you are fascinated by. Can you guess what animal we might be discussing? Well. That is the sound of a humpback whale singing. And, that sound comes courtesy of the federal government's no of fisheries website. But we're not going to focus on the way whales communicate today that's going to be a future episode. So be sure to listen for that one too. We want today to have a better understanding of what whales are and how they move through the oceans and occasionally through rivers to here's our guide for today's episode. My name is Nick Pinson. I'm a paleontologist at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. Tell me what paleontologist is healing tallest looks for any trace of life that lived a long long time ago, and they tend to look for fossils which can be bones footprints leaves any kind of trace of life that isn't around now, but we know existed millions billions of years ago. One of the challenges and one of the things I like most about being paleontologist is that you don't get all the clues that you'd like to. So we don't get a full skeleton sometimes you do but mostly not see have to make the best you can do with a little bit of information, and that's what makes paleontology for me a lot like a detective story. So neck, some of the kids listening now might be scratching their heads because they know that this episode is about Wales and you just told us you're a paleontologist. So you look for signs of life that doesn't exist anymore, but Wales still exists. I got into science because I really liked looking for fossils and that led me eventually to looking at Wales because Wales are mammals that live notion and some of them live in the rivers but you're probably more familiar with ones that live in the oceans that are really big that have flippers that have flukes They look from the outside a bit more like a fish than. A Mammal, what's really neat about them is that we know that they're mammals and that they're closely related to other hoofed mammals specifically the hoofed mammals that have even toes to toes and those mammals are cows, pigs, deer, camels, sheep. That's who whales are most closely related to, and if you look at the wheel and you look at all of its near cousins that are live today. Realize that whales look really really different and what explains why they're so different has to do with how they volved, how they came to be and going back to fossils were really fortunate and being able to find fossil whales tell us how those changes happened. So I'm lucky enough to be able to work with teams of scientists to go round the world and look for fossils. Of Whales and then try to understand how those fit in with what we know about whales today, and also where they're going because the earth has always changed and it's still changing I want to get to some of the questions that our listeners have sent us. But just before we do I, want to pick up on something that you said, which was that whales are really closely related. Even toed hoofed animals, but they look really different. So if they look really different, how can to animals be very closely related because you'd think they'd be more closely related to something else that they look like like a shark or a fish right just because something lives in the water or looks like a fish doesn't mean they're all related to each other whales, sharks and fish the last time they shared a common ancestor was probably nearly half a billion years ago. Let's get more precise about. Wales as related to other mammals, we have a lot of different ways of knowing how organisms are related to each other. We can look at their DNA which tells us directly about their relationships in a way. That's that doesn't connect to how they look as more to do with their genetics. Right DNA tells us that whales fit in with all these other mammals whales are mammals, and that's something you would know probably from just looking. At the fact that they re there, they have babies drink milk from their MOMS do have hair. If you are ever get the opportunity to close enough to whale, and even if you seem photos of baby, dolphins have little tiny whiskers on their snout they lose them pretty quickly. But those are all telling you about their deeper ancestry and you want to use all the different kinds of evidence available to you whether it's DNA. That might tell you one story or fossils that tell you a story that maybe sometimes is a bit different and that's why I say that fossils tell something that we wouldn't otherwise. No. We can have a a family tree of animals based on DNA and then fossils tell us about this branches of the tree that we wouldn't otherwise know about and for Wales. That's what tells us that the earliest whales lived on land
Protesters call for justice for teen killed by police in Waukegan, north of Downtown Chicago
"Rallying in Waukegan Yesterday they're upset about a police officer shooting and killing a teenage girl and wounding a woman on Tuesday. Okay. Dar, chairman of Black Lives matter. Lake County explains what they would like to see happen Now. We don't trust on Illinois State police to investigate the case. We prefer to have the deal. Jane come in to investigate the case. We're going to police. An officer got out of his squad car and approached the vehicle Woman and the teenage boy we're in, but the car went and reverse. The officer fired his gun. Quote in fear of his safety unquote, But the driver of the car was wounded, too, Pharrell Williams, so she was shot first, and that caused the car to drop into reverse gear. Last night's
Behind the Scenes of Tailwind CSS 2.0
"What's up with tail you guys I've been crazy busy lately and I guess like we've released the tailwind playground since the last one I think we. Got To see it early which, yeah perked perks of the CO host position. Yeah. So we put that out, that was like our big kind of release for the last kind of cycle of work and dot got a crazy ton of attention which is cool and People are making stuff with it like I'll one on a pull up the old database here and we can see. How many things are in there? There are. Two thousand, nine, hundred, and sixty nine playgrounds, which doesn't sound like a lot but we don't allow duplicates to be stored in the database. So if someone tries to save like something someone else's already made or they try to save the demo, it'll um it'll not store like a new crash. So sure those are all unique which is kind of cool and actually a lot when you think about it Yeah. And people seem to be liking a lot. We haven't done a good job of like linking to from the dockside or anything you. Get on eventually. Yeah. But Yeah. It's pretty sweet it's really slick I. Love. The intelligence integration is huge. I. Think that sets it apart from every other used browser. Yeah the live updating as you like hit up and down through the auto complete you don't even have to like hit enter to see like the change in color or padding whatever lets you just like like designing in the browser with your Arrow keys basically. Yeah. It's Fan. I like the experience you get that crow to the class panel but like best because it's in the right order and And it's only 'til you know. Yeah. Yeah. It's pretty good. Pretty good. So Great Job Team Now we this last week we started working on like our next work psycho, which is basically. Released when to that's like the big thing so I haven't working on all things related to that. Of course, I underestimated how work it would be just to like. You know when you're hitting a breaking release, there's so much like My sure. That's every tiny little thing that I want to change because this is like my only chance to make a couple of little change is. What it's like. You're making A, we're not making many changes really No class names are changing at all I. Don't think except for the we changed like call gap to gap acts in roh-gap to gap Y, but we already changed like before two point. Oh. But we just have brushed shipping both versions for awhile but not documenting the old ones so I don't think that's Going to be like a racing change for most people, and it's like super define replace to change that one. We're not changing any other class names So the only other breaking changes are super minor. It's like in your configure file. You know how you could set like a default border color by saying like default and then the color that sort of thing it. Anyplace in the configured where we were using defaults to be like a special word that meant something like it meant like don't add a suffix to the class name. We've replaced that with default in all caps so that it stands out and. Johnston. And we did it because there's some utilities where you actually want use the word default. So like we already have class called cursor default, for example, that sets like the cursor to D- phones, defaults of real value for that. So was kind of weird that default meant different things depending on like the yeah. So this felt like worth it because it's just like a go through and opera case a couple of things and most people probably won't have to do anything because. It's surprisingly. Like it's surprising how few people actually customize like the FIG A lot. You know it's just me. Yeah. Most of the changes just like being changed automatically in the default can fig. So if you haven't over ridden them, you won't even change it anyways Let me see what other stuff we we do in here open the very, very logical breaking change for like two data. Yeah. It just makes it a little bit better. And more predictable. I we dropped I e eleven support. Actually that's like the biggest breaking. Jane? I applaud that yes, it's not even a breaking change in the way that. It's a breaking change, but it's like. Not. Like Oh, now I have to do a bunch of work to upgrade to tell him to buy. No it's like you either can upgrade and it takes no work or you can't upgrade right right or you can pitch in and build the I guess it wouldn't be Apollo but like a preset, right? Yeah. Yeah. So I've toyed with this idea that you can totally like this precepts feature until. When now where you can say like instead of extending the tailwind defaults extend like my own defaults and because of how like plug into the tail and stuff is you can actually take like one of our utilities that doesn't work in I eleven like transform stuff is designed in an eleven incompatible way. You could literally just like disable those Plug Ins as part of your preset and include your own plug ins. Eleven scale I eleven rotate I eleven translate. That are less powerful but actually work in eleven sort of doing nothing, which is what are currently do right. And those could still read from like the same theme keys and stuff you know. So you wouldn't have to you basically just be like ripping out the core plug in swapping in a poly fil instead, and if someone just builds maintains it in, you know it's like transparent to the end user. So Gotcha, we might do that or I might just say someone else do that. If you care because I don't care about my own sites. In smaller too because like we used to ship. For every color utility, we have to convert the colors to RGB as we can have a variable portion for the Passi because we use CSS variables to let you get changed the opacity on color but because that doesn't work nine eleven, we ship the HEX code directly behind him as a fallback and. The colors like the biggest part of the whole build. So all of it, every single color had an extra declaration and even with perch CSS, it would keep it because purchase that's only deletes the whole class. It doesn't like delete parts of the class you know what I mean. Sure. Yeah. So now it'll be even smaller in that regard although it's bigger in other ways because we're adding things to it. I A couple of extra cutler, a couple of a couple of that. We're actually being less colors. So Oh, you've extract you're you're extracting them and making them opt in right So that's what we've done. The new defaults are. Gray. Red Yellow Green Blue Purple and pink,

Virgin Australia CEO Paul Scurrah resigns after Bain shake-up
"It been an extraordinary fortnite for Virgin Australia in a few weeks virgin will come out of voluntary Administration, but it's future remains far from certain wage. Following the extraordinary Revelations this week that CEO Paul skaara will leave the organization as soon as Bank Capital takes control of the company in early November replacing skaara will be for Majestic Geneseo. Jane heard liquor who is reportedly feared by unions as a ruthless and heartless negotiator. Officially Paul scar has has he made the decision to step down after discussing his family. He said that the time feels right and that he knows the business will now be in good hands, but there are very strong rumors that skaara was forced out of the position or chose to leave because he fundamentally disagreed with action Bane is taken the airline back when Bain Capital was announced as the preferred buyer of Virgin Australia many feared that rather than doing what they said. They were going to do the US private Equity Firm couldn't be trusted and could just slash-and-burn ahead of a quick sale of the airline and for many their worst nightmares, and now coming true the removal of CEO Paul Scarborough log. View Bain Capital had repeatedly and publicly backed since they agreed to buy virgin only scratches the surface. Unfortunately, the new owners are also now trying to negotiate with the various unions and those negotiations over Enterprise. Bargaining Agreements are not going. Well. Ben wants to slash Pilots pay by around 30 to 40% and cut flight attendant pay significantly as well flight attendants would also lose lose their overnight allowance, which is around $125 a night each night that they're away from home and their Duty time limit would also be increased from 9.455 to 12 hours per shift which would make same-day return trips from Sydney or Brisbane and Perth possible versions customers are also starting to feel let down many have not received refunds for flights that Vision had canceled and earlier this week. It also emerged that version cab and crew are taking sick leave to avoid dealing with business class passengers that are unhappy about being served. Noodles as the in-flight meal and unfortunately, that's a pretty accurate reflection of where virgin is right. Now in fairness to Virgin their website does say that complimentary meals and the purchase of additional food and drinks will not be available on board, but they do promise that each guest is going to be served a snack and water regardless of the cabin and even that's not really happening at the moment virgin is a sub so long on stock that it's now rationing the snacks. It serves to economy class passengers and there's no longer any Diet Coke or wine for business class passengers, they're out and not getting any more stock but catering worries aside. There is still also no indication. If or when Virgin Australia's lounges will reopen there's now speculation that bank Capital could close even more lounges than they originally announced an a virgin is also cutting some of the benefits offered to frequent flyers when traveling with International partner Airlines velocity frequent flyer announced this week that it will no longer award points or status Chrome. On any code-share flights with a VA flight number that operated by International partner Airlines in addition velocity members no longer have access to any Alitalia Hainan Airlines or Hong Kong Airlines airport lounges velocity Point upgrades on Delta are being discontinued and velocity members can no longer request complimentary Comfort plus upgrades when flying with Delta life in or to the United States
Interview with Wes Levitt from Theta Token
"You said the fleet of blockchain. So intensive the infrastructure easing, is it the using the theory infrastructure your inbox? What's the deal? Yes. So it is a its own blockchain early on, they lunches an ear, t twenty tokens, but essentially as. A STOPGAP pretty quickly we realized like a lot of projects in two thousand seventeen. There is nowhere close to scaling for our purposes and. I I didn't think we'd still be seeing in twenty twenty in that would still be accurate but is what it is. So glad we we win our own wrote and built a data blockchain which on intestine twenty eighteen and that they may not live. March twenty, nineteen and conceptually, it shares a lot with tender moment that was sort of the original. Design source for though in the end our CTO Jae-in is team built. The Code Base Ninety five percent from the ground up though there are still said some design influence from tender met, which is cited. You have ended up with your own. Feta, blockchain. Yeah and that's Obviously there straight off there was a of Lot of development working in the ongoing along the way but we still feel confident that was the right decision just because we have A. Perhaps more specific use case early, some more to focus now on video delivery and wraps expanding to more generalized data delivery, and while we are rolling out more somewhere generalized. Boxing features like an easy incompatible smart contract. environment. That's we're still not We're not looking for data to be another east killer sort of everything for everyone at Jane Seo. Made more sense for us to just build what's necessary for specific use case and trade-offs that that made sense for video delivery in peer to peer cdn rather than try to be a competitor F reaching out there was not a difficult decision to make to. Go with your in blockchain think is the whole idea of outsourcing infrastructure to a theory is it? Say's law that? That cost of duplication customizing it, but is swollen that. Sharon, and even if you are yard, you know building purpose built for what we're trying to accomplish here. They're still on location just inherently in that you're you're building a new a new chain that's disowning built but Yeah, it's certainly rather than staying on a Theorem Just be if nothing else because of throughput But even if you had, say you know that there is a trend for a good mountain, their twenty nineteen where it seemed like every smart contract law was trying to the win away the business Try to incentivize your pay the project to convert to their own, but you know at the end of the day than. You still beholden to someone else's development schedule and someone else's feature said you don't really. Not, really in the driver's seat for that which Just seem like without knowing enough about where these projects were going. It's like a big risk to attach ourselves to one of those. And you see some these registers where they've had to jump a few different times to different chains and even besides the extra development were to do that it's just a really. Difficult user experience for your token holders in a confusing one as you're jumping from. Not, only just from a technical sense of covering tokens but also just you know you ingratiate yourself in this ecosystem and then you gotta do a one eighty and say now we're absolutely new relationships. It's. Somehow even more of a mess than building your own blog
Wrestling on the Road
"Let's talk about you. Jane. Danny told me you had a pretty bad crash was that during one of these tours it was not know it was it was all my family runs a business here locally. So I was heading home from work onto a pretty serious head on. Car Collision. Thousand Fifteen and so. Was it one of those career enders at first sort of thing it? It has sort of put me on the shelf about fourteen months iodine shattered my hip fractured my pelvis broke wrists broke a hand a knows Where they're a bunch of fun stuff and then even while in the hospital had a blood clot just prior to surgery blood clot, almost go into my long or or my heart or whatever it was. So the communist chauffeur in hostels about six weeks, recovery and all that on the shelf fourteen months and doctors explained that because of the surgery dot steel and ends in my APP and my wrist and my hands and. It's sad that you probably should not do anything physical because I got no cartilage left in my hip. So it's essentially bone on bone. So I wasn't sure how things are gonNA. Go after time and was just kind of taking by date and then to Rehab and all that fun stuff I started feeling quite good and and getting Jim and and feeling good doing all that stuff running and whatnot. So I decided to test the waters after about fourteen months and get some shows out now verte and Ever since then I've applied in the busiest, I ever have been with these tour staving off and then bustling at least one hundred times a year give or take go ask couple years. That's great. So it didn't affect you overall these still feeling good in the ring. Go feeling all right Other than getting a little late in gaining a couple pounds I'm still able to do all the stuff that you know was that all he's able to do essentially a pretty big guy hundred and sixty pounds. I'm still able to do backflips and all that fun stuff. So it hasn't really affected me in the rain just yet a couple of years down the road will be saying something a little different but so far so good. So I can complain. So as we start to wind down here, I mean like I said great concept and a really appreciate and respect the fact that you do this I wish I wish you were around. Twenty five years ago when I was on the local scene because I would've been signing up for every single one of these things. On a bigger basis for both of you guys have you had WB tryouts have you worked in the states What's your overall aspirations? Do you want to continue to forge your own identity with CWA? Are you looking to try and get booked in another other places are a little bit of vote for myself. I I've been wrestling. Now will be seventeen years coming up next month and I've been very blessed I. Have I been doing work with? W. I actually did a segment with you on television couple years back with you Kevin O. Rawlins's security guard doing four-part stuff. I've done. Like four three years ago in Minneapolis, we did a full part in got knocked over by guys was nice you. You're great. Very nice. Actually, I actually told the story how like how good of an experience that was in the sense of just minimal and unimportant as our role was as an extra in as a security guard just learning psychology of war body needs to be for the cameras to catch your facial and things of that nature was a really good rewarding experience Just take away and bring back home and then put your pocket for another day. But I I've been very very like. Two thousand ten I'm used pretty regularly in the mid West move when they do extra work there I've done a dark nancy no prior to smackdown as well done a PC trial of I've been lucky enough to go to Japan a few times and do some work with ring of honor. So former I still stay like very motivated driven that. Want. You continue pushing forward and be successful as as a professional wrestler first and foremost But at the same time this thing taking off and then gained much traction as it is. It's got my attention as well and it's kind of you know they always say to have a backup plan I know they probably have a back or anonymously backup plan. But just being able to promote tours and provide for myself and my family. If I can get, you need to do that in the meantime pursuing you know things that are professional wrestler as well. Open up doors. I'm definitely happy doing that as well. How about you AJ Yeah. So I've had the opportunity I've worked You know all throughout Canada down in the US and then in two thousand, twelve I got the opportunity to go down and train Mexico to play. And as far as like present day, you know wrestling's kind of paying the bills right now. So just trying to stay as business basel, but if something. Bigger opportunity or more ever popped up You know I would not be opposed to try that as obviously the window for something like that is starting to close as time goes on so I've just looking. Busy and like I said, restaurants paying the bills. So it is better
Diversity 'is a commercial imperative now': Brand Advance CEO Chris Kenna
"Hello and welcome to the PODCAST. I've Riley did today's senior correspondent based I've read the UK and it gives me great pleasure to welcome a fellow Brit to the show. This week Christopher Kenna is the CEO brand advance the UK based global diversity media. Network. Said welcome to the PODCAST. Thanks for having me. She is Chris So yeah, it's fair to say I to start kind of right at the beginning because I think it's fair to say that you didn't take maybe the most conventional well traveled route into the into the media industry. And I won't stick if our listeners a little flavor if I may of the years that led up to you founding your your current company. So I didn't know where we start kind of at the very beginning Many of our US listeners probably know where the olive man is but. But that's where you were born. Very, very small British island has relation of what like eighty thousand or something like that. Yeah. So let's start there. Yeah the Ottoman. From people on the other side of the potent if you look in. The UK map you've got the big and then you've got islands, which is small bit this a little island right in the middle of the big being. England Scotland Wales on the small bit be an island is a little dot in the middle never rarely shown on whether ups Whether symbol but. Yeah population about eighty, seven, seventy, eight, hundred, thousand. A blockade everyone. You know which Just as. It's off with a with. From the very get guy. I was destined Dabo. Trophies and certificates got a significant for that UH. I don't remember getting obviously I was born but. When could so skip I was in cash in. And when you come out of, can you get like a big thing achievements event? On pretty much anything, anybody's ever written about you open to that point of until you sixteen on the very first thing in now was this. From Jane. Critical Hospital From you spend a number of years in the in the British army. Is that right wherever you based? Yeah. So I was based out a Jimmy Fest So did my member basic training here in England in Boston bond went to blunt it, which is the army school of signals. To do sort of second phase training which is. I was a on communicate so to go. Out to use a radio not but you know what I mean and so I was destined for comes. So maybe not all is so far apart as you think. You. Know army to media we basically doing the same thing. So then yeah I was boasted out to Jimmy went out seventeen. Met My now ex way. My kid when I was seventeen. So. We start on the fatherhood on your after kits. Now they're both off German English they live at JEB new Madonna goes to union bellied son goes to high school and beautiful in Jimmy.

Ni- I imagine. That's not good company. So and then media came calling for you. Well well, you came cooling for media well I. Don't know who, but but I think I'm good at this. I've lived sound a little arrogant now but I think definitely media needed needs people like me. You. Know just the background I don't mean specifically there's nothing particularly special about May. The I mean you don't people from my background's people that didn't you know two Family Income Kofi Union blind you don't we need diversity of vices. We need diversity of thought. So yeah, I think it needed me as much as I needed it. But no so I started off. Is So when Columbia Street back Manchester. I'd spend a lot of time to care and Blah Blah Blah. Back Manchester. On then. Yes. Fell into acting and presented done even. Go too much into that. 'cause it's a problem, a life of China Forget. But yeah, ended up doing presenting things like price drop TV.

Midnight Moment - Media Grinds my Gears - burst 1
"Hey Patriots Paul Spartan here with your truck tonight moment. It's just after midnight here in the mall High Command Center in the paper the price of.com Studios or Theatres Rowland. Right. So you wanted to do something about the the the blatant stupidity of the media which you know, currently I agree with as well. But what's up? I'm pissed off lately, you know listening to it does just the the the main street bullship of the you know, I mean people like I'll give you an example today, you know, listen to them, but I'm listening to Shaun Hannity. Yeah, listen to him this afternoon. I'm really quite fed up with listening to repetitive bulshit get repetitive nature of every day. They talked about Hillary Clinton Steele dossier rented Comey Clapper by today, He's strong all these people they keep describing the every single day for like the past year or two years. Hm about a dog. It's like I don't be the sort of nasty ugly way, but it's like listen to Joel Osteen. Yeah, give some really cool messages but it always ends up being the same thing. You get the same road. So guys go to give you this God's going to give you a Bountiful Harvest. We're down the road go to prevent all this treasure on the 7-year like that's right. Okay so big way down with Fox News because I was so tired of hearing these people talking about all these different things going on with Adele They Declassified all the stuff of of the of the Hillary Clinton emails and all this stuff. I mean, I'm at the point where it's either a license assholes or wage shut the hell up something else until somebody comes to light that you can bring the stuff back to the Forefront and put these assholes in jail log. This is everybody. I mean, what is that? What's the guy the the US attorney that's been looking into all of it? And he was promising results by the end of summer. And now it's now he's saying that you're not going to get any results until after the first of the year because of all the delays from covid-19. You know, I got a I got to say that that doesn't rub me correct either. Okay, Electro over that code would shit left the station three months ago. How exactly secondly you know, if if your average citizen you were high or being investigated for this we'd received at the maximum at the maximum. We'd receive inbox on the door. And a you know, Mister Spartan Mister burden, we need you to come with us, please and we would be handcuffed and read our rights and taken to a location and questions about who know so treatments months ago. Oh, yeah, so that said my my real question has been these past four months. Why isn't that happening? You know, why isn't why is the weight of why isn't the weight of the federal government being used to you know, what for lack of a better word that to you know, get these folks to talk or at least get them on the rep eliminated statement on the record. So you have something to use and dig and then you can you know, pursue charges after that. I mean, you know, they they Rogers. Yeah, we they get Rodger stone for absolutely nothing, you know ditto General General Flynn. I mean if you look into that fucking debacle, I mean that is just, you know, the man the man confessed so that his son wouldn't go to jail under some sort of obscure, you know some sort of obscure Panthers. And and tell me what father wouldn't go. Okay, I'll fall on the sword for my scheduler. Here you go. You know, I mean that's that's ludicrous but somehow we have all this concrete evidence floating around your standard person would would be back in cuffs and and in a Cell for but somehow the Washington Elite is just that just you know isn't going to work. I mean that's that's what people talk about when they're talking about a two-tier justice system and I think it pisses all of us off regardless of wage. So who's in the Oval Office and truth be told it's been this way for decades. This is not this is not something that started in 2016. I mean what what are your thoughts on that? It's probably the story took place during the McCarthy era back of the fifties. I had to be. Yeah. Yeah, that would shock me at all. You know. I am kind of getting a little bit more caught about Eugene McCarthy and it kind of went all that entail, but I just got really fed up with hearing Hannity and Limbaugh. and how to be the media to be has just become really the only people raved I'm kind of going on a chance to hear but sure but right now the only legitimate news sources that I really pay attention to is what American News Network Boeing edit that what's his name the Oklahoma State coach for on home of the T-shirt to Boggle up. Let's see Newsmax and plate Louis Park. I see Luke router to pull The Hodgetwins. Yeah, David Webb, you know the usual suspects Rush Limbaugh. Sure Mark Ross Park Levin regards like a Tucker Carlson, but after that well, maybe Laura Ingraham, but Doug with the really I'm done with Fox knows they're becoming more but I mean ever since Chris warmer. Sorry Chris Wallace, you know, it's Deborah dead dead father's me kill the moderators of these debates. How did get these assholes off? There's there's evidently a federal debate commission that actually actually they choose from a pool of them from what I understand, but that's that is how do these people that they choose in anyway come off as moderator from you know, I mean, let's put it this way and to our listeners out there regardless of what side of the of the the Spectrum you sit on nobody likes to see a nobody likes to see where the referees are biased. Nobody likes that all right. So, you know, you do need to have some sort of at least in partiality and fair treatment and I think I think if there's to all of our sports fans out there suck. We can all agree that we would also rather see a game called fairly even with you know mistakes. Okay, then have a complete and total bias. Okay by the officiating crew. So that said how the hell does a never Trumper like Wallace Wallace is a republican from what I you know, from what I gather but that said he's definitely a never Trumper. So he's definitely got a got an anti presidential an anti-protest bias. Okay, and you know, the funny part to me is Rush Limbaugh said years ago that the the intellectual Elite is that are quote unquote running the media number one. They're not intellectual number one number two, they're not elitist their leftist. They confuse intellectual elitism with political ideology. That was number one. Number two. They are only talking to themselves. In order to get Awards and get noticed by their peers. They give they don't give two shits about the actual audience or John Q or Jane Q public. Okay, and that's become completely evidence. I mean Wallace jumps all over the POTUS to to to where was it decry or disavow white racism or white box. Or superiority or whatever. The man has done it twenty two times in the last three years twenty two times in the last year's Wallace is oblivious to this why he's working at industry and he doesn't know this. You know, I mean, I'm down to see Joe Rogan officiate this and and wait for Joe Biden to go one of his, you know, the same come on man and Joe to look him straight in the face and go know I'm I don't know you're going to have to articulate. Please continue to you know, I mean there shouldn't be rules of a time limit in a debate not not a Choice Dental to be like 5 minutes to a question answer the question go to answer two-thirds of the way down to go. Oh, wait a minute about a time off. Well debate is debate debate as much like a but much like a live chess match. Okay, and you know, like like me a cryptic talk about on our last podcast and we reviewed that show by by the news that conflation tactic to tell blatant untruths and conflated multiple issues and Thursday. That within this time frame but but the rebuttal required longer than two minutes to let a bag of snakes that he threw out on the floor straight because none of it was true, but it's but that's a debate tactic and not used it to his benefit. Unfortunately. What we were talking about was we think that POTUS either didn't prepare correctly or didn't he thought that thought that Biden wouldn't be as much of a threat as he was I don't think that's a mistake he's going to make again, but that I I completely digressed but to go back to your point. Yeah, you either have blatant hatred and lies on one side or just complete a bulb and naivete on the other and you're right. It's getting old. It's getting it's getting stale The Narrative is you know is we're stuck in a stagnant pattern from 2017m. Exactly and it's it's I'm done. I mean, it's like can we please move on to Joe Biden being an absolute the food home? Talking about stuff about these poor these girls. I guess it did some kind of a little dancer some kind of little routine for out of that was yesterday and talking about I want to see these four girls dance like this for years from now. I'm like, oh my god. Wow, dude. Well people that need this. Oh, yeah, he just and he just said something like the reason he was able to stay in his life. So long was cut because some black women stock the shelves. I'm like, holy it's you know, nobody people should go to vote for this asshole. Yes. That's the other point right? There is that, you know, people sent their they beat up on politics. I understand that Elliot Omar Kazi. Oh Cortez Chuck Schumer Pelosi, Mexico has all these buffoons after continually doing and say dumb things, but it's not all their fault. You got to look at them. Orders and go argue that effing idiot. Well more importantly look into this crap. Well more and more importantly to your point. How does anybody see that and go? Oh, yeah, I'll vote for that. Is that coming? Brother? See people Boise driving down the road where to face masks? Oh, yeah. Yep. There's a Democrat write their own nuts. That's who these people are. Yeah, that was one of the jokes that we put up on the page on the page was, you know, if you're going to vote you don't have to have a biting bumper sticker If you're driving alone in your car with a mask on we know off we know. So it's just ridiculous and out here. It's you know, like a what I like to listen to, you know, what up in the early morning or early evening shows like after Rush Limbaugh. After Rush Limbaugh, but after work slip by usually looking to this is named at Birth guys. He's pretty cool. He's a good choice servative functional guy, right? You know, he's what I do. Let's do a set of Hannity cuz we're out of here down in his defense. I do kind of like him but you're right is his narrative is getting a little old. I mean, I think that he needs to understand. Okay, dude and get it. You know, you know, we know birth We know. All right, let's let's take a break here. We'll come back with our next segment midnight Patriot Nation Spartan here with a Shameless plug for our new gear shop Thursday.

Will be I mean, you know the other day I was gone off basement. What about about six weeks? I saw on Facebook and the reason why we're on Facebook so long is because I'm so sick and tired of reading all the the falsehoods in stupidity about President Trump. Oh, yeah. I also heard about as ugly just I'm just updated. So I left and now Cutler blessed know when I go back into Facebook and I see all the stuff. I just go hide I post I just I don't even read them. I just I know who they're from. I know what they're going to say. Don't you read them? I'd post it makes me feel a whole lot less stress. I know I agree that crap. You know, it's like I don't it's too late is always it was never too late to change because my Pi's already been paid up and it didn't meet up for the last photo albums for years now. Well those of us those of us that have you know, those of us that have the benefit of age and I don't mean to say any of us are old even though we are dead. Yeah, we remember I wouldn't even think of voting for 16. That was no fucking way. I was voted for Hillary Clinton cuz I remember what a nightmare she was during the Clinton Administration. You know, I know what kind of asshole Joe Biden is cuz she like I said, I remember him from the Clinton Administration writing the crime bill, you know, the single piece of legislation incarcerated more people of color than any other single legislation dead, but I digress I remember that he did that, you know in the funny part is his running mate was more than happy to lock up people of color from marijuana violations while she was sitting back getting stoned at home the same night that she put guys away for it, which is over here sucking, you know, brownie squares real chicken Willie Brown's Road willing I beat yeah. There you go. She owns a Blue Dress suggestions a blue dress of her own those of us that are older in the audience will get that to all right. So let's get Willie. All right guys, so that's going to suck. But this episode of the midnight moment. This has been Spartan and Burton and we will catch you next time. Remember the Constitution is not just a suggestion trip. Well, everybody else. Have a good one.

"Couldn't comprehend what she really meant I. Kind of felt sorry for you because. I feel like you stepped into something that was never solved I know and that's I. WanNa Talk to you because I I am having such a hard time wrapping my brain. When I need I, need some concreteness I go that they had never spoken about it in detail but there are details and the autobiography and I figured Lenny must know about that and know how Jane felt about all of this because like I know how Jane felt about all of this am I don't even know Jayme all I'd done was read her book. But that's exactly what Lenny had not done. I mean she's talked about some of this stuff she has yes in her end my life so far she writes about you a bash I ended up reading the section out loud to her on the phone. It is important that I tell the story that Lenny finally get the credit due to her for her original routine and where did you find that? In, her autobiography, this is the first I've ever heard of that. It's funny because in a case like this explaining what happened publicly counts for a lot lenny really wants credit for her part in the workout and you can't get that for herself. She needs Jane to do it. So in writing about Lenny in my life so far in mentioning her speeches, Jane is doing the Moshi she can choosing the most public way to tell the most people. Accept money to know was happening. It's totally possible Jane sent the book to Lenny Lenny's daughter lorries reaction to hearing this part of the autobiography was to say to her mom, you never check your mail, but sometimes it's worth picking up the phone to to make sure your heartfelt message has been delivered. Someone finally did pick up the phone in the last year or so. But it was leading who called she was washing something. We can't quite figure out what and there was a partner where Jane mentioned Gilda marks the woman who owned the studio or Lenny was working Jane I walked in. There was been taking credit for the workout for decades Jane Fonda who again her exercise career in my Studio learning the body design program has made it a way of life. This is the thing that has always made Miami angriest not just not getting credit but other people getting credit instead she said eldest name and that was in for me I just called her directly and finally confronted and that when my heart was pounding when I did that I have to say that wasn't an easy call. Changes will what can I do and I said get us on affirmative fitness magazine. They could not get one though and that this point months later and totally coincidentally that I wonder in with an email asking if Jane, Fonda would speak to me about how the workout came to be on our last call. Let me read me the email that Jane Center asking issued do the interview with me in Jane told money. Magazine. But they wanNA, do a nuts and bolts piece about how the workout started quote. Let's give them more than they asked for it was on the call that resulted from that. Our call. The Jane finally expressed directly to Lenny would lenny has so wanted to hear it doesn't actually contain the word. Sorry but it is an apology. Have you been stealing about it like up until then how how been niggling at you that? Yes. Is still done. I often times. I. Say okay. If I were then where I am now in my head and my heart would have gone down differently I know that it would. Want you to know I know that. But because I wasn't. Able to yet. Really. Deal with the tension that existed between the fact that this was a business. Now, that was going to be supporting a political organization and what was Lenny's role in it. It was easy to figure that out. It would've been easy. And she may have gone off and married and sailed around the world anyway. But it would have been different and and it's something that stays with me like a in my heart to this day we can let that go now. Lenny is ready to let it go was one of her only regrets they hadn't hashed it out and that's gone now she doesn't hold a grudge everything's cool but she remained as ever a little more real about all of this when Jane was not on the phone, she feels terrible about it and I know she feels terrible about it and I think now in reflection she she knows that. That it was just a very shitty thing to do and here's the irony. was can't. Pay For. Economic Democracy. I'd wanted to talk to Jane Fonda about the workout because I thought there was a lot to it but I had no idea that there was this I thought it was an artifact, a perfect snapshot of its time a leg warmers. But that it was also a roadmap pointing to the future to wellness culture and the celebrity lifestyle brand and another way of seeing Jane. Fonda. But hadn't a clue that it was a sticking point in a forty year relationship alive and meaningful in a wholly personal way. Listening back the first call now that I know what Jane Lenny's dynamic really is I understand some of the things I misunderstood the first time around one happened in the opening ten seconds of the call. This is an important interview that we're doing will and let me explain why and I'm and I'm very moved that we're going to do this gene saying interview but the part that's moving Dr Not that it's an interview it said it's a long overdue exchange a testimony. I thought it was overall when I first heard it. Could I missed the track I don't think it's overall anymore. One Way to think about all of this the saga of Jane Fonda and Lenny Kasdan is mistakes and misdeeds can have long lives. Another way to think about it is that sometimes trying to set things right can have an even longer one. Life is long and complicated and you can't undo what happened. But maybe piecemeal bit by bit you can work it out. So I understand your your orientation right now here's the deal one thing you must avoid as being a bitter woman thinking that's not a good look. It also seemed like it was maybe important for you for her knots. Think you're a bitter old woman just seemed like you wanted to make clear to her like your life spied which it sounds like it is. I. Am doing.

Interview with Carlos Rivero, Chief Data Officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia
"Hello and welcome to the AI Today podcast. I'm your host Kathleen Mulch. And I'm your host Ronald schmelzer Our Guest today is Carlos Rivera. Who is the chief data officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia off Carlos. Thank you so much for joining us on AI today Hey Ron. Thanks for having me. Yeah, welcome Carlos and thanks so much for joining us. We'd like to start by having you introduce yourself to our listeners. Tell them a little bit about your background. Check your current role as Chief data officer. Fantastic Kathleen. So yes in my current role on the chief data officer for the Commonwealth of Virginia before that. I've been in that role since August of 2018. And before that I was a chief data officer and chief Enterprise architect or the Federal Transit Administration at the US Department of Transportation that was there for a little over two years as well. And then prior to that I was physical scientist with Genoa Fisheries down at the southeast Fisheries Science Center for about fifteen years. So I've been in public service right now going over nineteen years in both federal and state experience. Well, that's great. I think that provides a lot of real Nice diverse set of experience, you know from Fisheries to the federal government to state government. And I think that's part of reason why we love to have your participation that we had your participation at the data for a-week confirmation that ran from September 14th thru 18th 2020 was of course a virtual conferences everything as these days and we were focusing on the data side of AI and for our listeners who may be interested that content is actually still available so you can come and you can hear the panel that Carlos was on when we were focusing on some of the state and the local challenges for AI and data management. If you go to data, that's spelled like data package i c o n f. It's free so you can go on there and you can check all that content will be made available for many months. So you definitely should check it out and Carlos was on a panel really sharing some of the unique insights of applying a machine learning and also some of the interesting challenges of wrangling data at the state level. So maybe Carlos you for those who weren't Intense or maybe even to motivate folks to listen to the family. What are some of them? Sites that you have seen in terms of just the challenge of managing data and getting it to do some magical things like machine learning at the state level. Well, I mean really one of the most basic things is getting people involved in the process. And in fact has plays a key role in that obviously more, you know, as we kind of evolved in once a leveraged data as of CJ Cassat within the Commonwealth, we realize that the participation of individuals not just horizontal across the organization, but also a vertically through different levels of state government is critical for our ability to integrate those data assets in a meaningful way and when I talk about the vertical, how are the patients I'm talking about, you know data storage data custodians data owners executive sponsors being able to participate in the overall governance discussion because everyone has a role to play in our ability to leverage data as a CJ asset to be able to incorporate that into our data analytics to write better intelligence and within that, you know, a comes in machine learning and artificial intelligence briefing. Jane as much value and insight from the data assets than we currently have. Yes indeed. Go ahead Kelly. Yeah, definitely and kind of to follow up with that on this podcast. We talked a lot about Ai and data at the national level, but maybe you can dig a little bit deeper into what are some of the unique challenges around data at this point level because I know that you know in general there's a general data challenges, but then we can also talk about you know, there's differences between State versus local versus Federal. So the fun thing about state is that you get to play with all the businesses at one time, you know in the federal space like when I was no Fisheries, we're very focused on fisheries and Fisheries applications. Mind you, you know as a physical scientist. I really worked with a lot of different data sets. As I was really more in a fraction of those individual populations and their environments right and anthropogenic impact on those environments and how does that change the behavior of individuals within a species right? And so you have to look at the bigger picture and yep. Integrate data from a variety of different sources other Noah Services resolved as live in North Fisheries, but we also have satellite service. We have the ocean service. We have the weather service. So being able to bring in data assets from a variety of different Services different lines of business. If you will to give you a better picture of what's happening in an environment that's very unique like more often than not individuals within that particular industry. We only focus on the data that they collect they work with on a regular basis and not really look at the bigger picture of what other data assets they can bring in same thing for in Federal Transit right in Federal Transit. It was very limited in their you know, what their perspective was with regards to you know, what data asked us what we going to bring in to really understand what's happening out in the world. They're really focused on providing, you know grants of Transit agencies and authorities to make sure that people are able to get to use public transportation in the most effective way. So it's very very silent. But then when you talk about a state government, can you talk about you know being able to leverage data as an asset at that level you really talking about across all of the different page? Business whether it's education Transportation criminal justice, you know environment what-have-you Health, you know, all of those lines of business now come under your purview and you really have to start to understand. What are they unique perspectives and how can you engage those individuals within each of those lines of businesses to be able to see the value in integrating their data assets and making better data-driven decisions home from that integration. So from a state perspective you really start to get a better handle on the overall picture of what's happening out in the real world versus a very I don't want to use this term negative in my topic view of you know, what your assembly looks like and only that which Falls but then you're suddenly are you paying attention to but at the same time, I've also realize that you know data governance and use of data as an ass is really a fractal type of problem where it doesn't matter. What kind of scale you look at it. It's going to have the same patterns associated with some of the same issues that we dealt with at the federal level we deal with birth. Level we deal with at the local level because it's not a matter of our these issues different. It's just a scale at which we operate in that just kind of gives you a little bit of a difference in wage issue is but the reality is that it's very poor the majority of the issues we do with with regards to data governance and data sharing and leveraging data and analytics a machine learning really comes back to the process and the people aspect of the peace process technology interaction.

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..

Jane Levy First Time Guest on happy sad confused very pleased to say that's a Jane came by before the the madness ensued. So this is our last kind of normal episode of happy abused for at least at least a while. I'm safe to say that it will be a while before we all go back to normal. Despite what some people think despite what the leader of the country is saying no things are not going to be going back to normal in two weeks or a week. I can say that because I'm living in New York City which is in the middle of It's the epicenter as you. Well know of the madness right now and it's it's not a pleasant time for any of us and certainly a worrying time Which is all the more reason to have To value escapes like podcasts and entertainment and that brings me back to to Jane and her charming new series on NBC. Zoe's extraordinary playlist. So Jane Jane came by a few weeks back. This was well before the shit hit the fan. And she's Great Dane. Is Jane James? A big WEIRDO. I think she'll agree. She'll be flattered by that statement She's a kindred. Spirits always enjoyed to her over the years and this was our first chance to really talk in depth about her life and career. And when I saw this new show Zoe's extrordinary playlists which has been on for a few weeks on NBC. I was really charmed by. Its if you haven't seen it. It's I think it's pretty pipe fee. It's a it starts a great ensemble of musical Theater Actors. People like Mary. Steenburgen Peter Gallagher and scholar Aston and at the center of it. All is Jane Levy. Who Ironically hasn't really had that kind of a life and career musical theater. But it's a high concept show if you don't know it basically about a young woman who can suddenly hear people's thoughts through musical numbers. Sounds absurd. Sounds insane is and yet. It works this this upcoming episode. I haven't seen it yet. Actually but I've heard that this is a big fund showcase for Jane herself in that she gets to actually be doing a lot of the numbers herself because the by the nature of the conceit of the show is she's surrounded by these Performers doing these crazy amazing musical numbers. So it'll be a nice change of pace this coming weeks episode. The show airs on Sunday nights out on. Nbc At nine PM can catch again. This this week's episode coming up on March twenty ninth at nine pm. And as I said it's a it's a special one for Jane And as I said she's See someone always involved with and I really would.

You feel like you're getting an. We talked a couple of times but never at length. Yeah and now you've seen the inside of my brain. Thanks to my office its own. You agree with it. Yeah you have movies. I hope I do of movies. Yeah did you grow up loving movies? Weirdly I mean it's not like I grew up. Not You're anti movie IOS. Don't show her movie. I have not anti movie but I just didn't like I didn't go to the movies all the time we didn't have like a huge collection of VHS tapes. My House we had like ten that I watched over and over and over again. What were the courtroom core five? Give me some. Harriet this by the Classic Trachtenberg. What's her was it? Just ten copies of Harrods. Sorry Ventura when nature calls the sequel. Yes we only have the sequel. Yep on my God go. That's really funny. Good okay to keeping him theme with your lesser sequels. Right the royal tannenbaums okay. This is very straight joke. Yeah Robin Hood Robertson. Okay cartoon Talks Yup Yup selected this menagerie this insanity. Somehow we ended up with these folks like whether we rented them and give them back or someone gave them as a gift or my parents. Pick them out or I'd vote them out. I have no idea there was more but those are the ones I remember watching a lot. I loved Harriet spy after work. I've ever seen her. The spun bit older than the use of probably a kidney at the right time right. I mean it was weird if I was like high despite his twenty five year old man. All right very weird. It was like a like a tough young girl detective and I was like. Yeah Yeah your your your as people know. You're an actress and your detective. Yeah that's your side Gig right. Did you watch the Oscars I did? Do you enjoy the now. The Palm of the circumstance the silliness. I mean okay. Let's get into it. Obviously giving awards for art is the most important thing in the world. It doesn't make any sense completely arbitrary. Like how can you compare a scorsese movie to parasite right not to mention to give the most already benefited human beings on the planet? One More accolade right people like you know what I think is amazing. That acting like actors are really good audience members like associate and they think it's like reading a good novel. You're like oh I'm not alone. That that reminds me of this and we are all same humanity. Wow and so I think in some ways humans like project a lot onto movie stars and so then they can like have this experience with the movie stars in a way that I think is fine. Like it's like like like yes. It's it's a bunch of mostly white people patting themselves on the back for room making millions and billions billions of dollars shirt. But at the same time it's like it's like human connection. It's seeing yourself in the prettiest versions of ourselves. I guess taking it too seriously any direction or doesn't make sense and so I watch it because I'm like I do want to see the fashions and like I do like these movies. And it's so weird to think that one will win over the other like I. Just don't get into that. I long as someone who grew up with all the stuff and watch the Oscars. Since I was like a baby like I long ago gave up like any illusion of the best one when the only one that I even like winning. It's for me. It's fun to see and back in the day like it was fun to see like the old guard and like the Nicholson's and all that and now it's fun to see like Brad Pitt. Now is like the old guard. What happened rates kind of like a marker of like how old we are old I am now and I like all the history stuff me too. Yeah so I given. So what your Buddy Rene one yeah That's cool. Yeah I mean by the time yes that. She just wrapped in London when we started shooting. What if I think she was even late to? What if we can half because she was still finishing? She's a really really really good actor. Cordell Globes right. Would you enjoyed that side of it again? The carpet and presenting on that or no so. I actually got ready for the Golden Globes and walked on the carpet for a half hour and then went to the hotel and wash my face. Got on a plane went to Vancouver and worked at eight o'clock in the morning on the show. Yes yes so. I didn't actually get to sit through the show which would have been fun but I had to go back to work. So do I like that part of it. Honestly yes and no I have moments where I'm on the red carpet and I'm like actually at the Golden Globes. This is a little bit like vulnerable to admit but I was like you're standing here because your hard work and it felt like I felt good about that whether or not I mean it's not like I'm just like seeing all these amazing artists and being like that person because I worked really hard and that is a sneak in the back they actually let me in front with Meyer but that also makes me go into barbeque. I like an. I don't wear and like this. Business is a lot about like ego and power and like blatantly and like no matter how much we try to pretend. It's not like that part of it hurts me. I'm sure it hurts. Everybody like I'm sensitive but So so yes I I also get like insecure when I dress up and I'm like this feels so weird like the whole point is that I have to pretty and that's not really why I'm an actor and what what is it. What if they like that part of it makes me uncomfortable but then at the same time? I like to think of some events where you're doing. Press as celebration of the thing that you made that you worked really hard. M. Like Zoe's I am like so proud of it and I'm so proud of all of us that I'm just like great. I get to go talk about this thing that I'm really proud of totally while sometimes feeling uncomfortable wearing address. It doesn't feel like it's sort of. Yeah Yeah I feel like I had a tiny glimpse into what it's like for that address so uncomfortably in those insane situations..

Yeah isn't it has definitely changed. You should figure I'm sure we'll be absolutely amazing. Let's do it in my but I asked Jane I was like I'm so how'd you like looking so amazing raid all she? She's so gorgeous and she says good jeans and a lot of money but at least you. Oughta know she's honest. Just leave me all your doctors and facialists and everything. Leave it on the table and you're talking to so anyway so he's always been beautiful. She's always uniform and she really. She's always had a hot body. Let's say yes. But like her her her method her ways it was just so mart and it really is what a lot of people in the fitness world have now serve gleamed on all these different crazy trends and fads and stuff like that. That wasn't very good for your body and kind of going back to these. Small move is moving more but I think what's cool about her is that she broke down. That you know fourth wall. I guess you can say in a way that nobody else was at the time. She was a mega star. You know and the way that she was like. I'M GONNA come into your living room. We're going to fully work out together. She was like ever. She's so authentic with it and I do think that there's a righteousness to her work in that she's like you know how to move in your body. You know what I mean and this I believe in a lot like I don't like a lot of you know the way that you move and your body is beautiful on like how you are yoga's like so incredible. I mean I've seen it I watched it. It's beautiful That's a real talent you know to but I think like that. So many people. They just don't even feel like they are. They feel like people need to put them in a lunch or something or people need to like. Be like squeeze your but now and do this and I think she was just like kick your with me. Girls want to go to lunch. What's so great and friendly and it has to be not scary so many people are afraid to actually go into this one of the things that people I mean everybody says the hardest thing is showing and that is one hundred percent true but I hear these horror stories. That people are telling me like all I don't do because I went to a yoga class and the instructor was so mean to me or will they took away our water bottles or did a lot about instructors side about people in a lot of that and if somebody ever makes you feel bad in your class don't take it. Don't sit like think I can't work out. Just don't go to their class again because it has not rea- that's yeah but you know. I think there's something helpful about the fact that there to your point. I think people who feel very comfortable in their bodies and who've who have always had a path or a plan or a pattern of movement that has allowed them to create these. Genetics plays into that of grey tour. But I think there's something very exciting and rewarding for people to hear from you talking about the fact that that was not your store. Your sorry wasn't like I've always looked great. My bottom line goes on. This is my this is my path and that's how I did. That feels discouraging to people who don't look in the mirror and think that it's going to come naturally to the right And so I think I love that. You're that you that your that. Your Path was to actually help bodies of all sizes all shapes you all backgrounds all genetic makeup to come into their own best moment and I think I was saying to ally before you came in that part of what I look and I obviously done your workouts forever and I really feel I do want to talk about specifically pre and postnatal because it was the first time I was introduced. You was Was through the prenatal. Dvd's and And I know you have some specific methodologies for like bringing the core specifically back into into balance unlike coat you know cohesiveness but How like I always say. I think your workout is one of the best recruiting long like Feminine Lions especially in the ABS. I think that there's a very. There's a big difference between like rock hard APPs that Tilak soft APPs ME I. That's just like what's the deal with that house so when you come into the class there there's a lot of years of research and it. I'm most proud of the Moscow structure work because that is what is the most. It's not hard for me to make up dances. It wasn't difficult for me to figure out to take the stop and go out of aerobics years and years and years ago. And I've don't do the dance robotics anymore because I'm going to be forty five and a month and like the jumping on our faces is just not good. It's not love say like knees or something or face yet. Hello or good. So I'm like I pushed myself to get better and better at the Moscow structure designed to make it more cardio knee advance so that I don't have interesting so the Matt work is what I'm the most proud of because all of the muscular structure work that is for me. That's all the design so if you're a member at the studio everything is custom. Do you change every ten days but during my DVD journey the reason why film so many DVD's by the way it's terrible business model like if you WanNa make money DVD's don't film the most DVD's in the entire world. I did it because I was like Gwyneth. We have a problem. You wanted to share me with the world. So thank you. I appreciate that but these people they don't you do. Dvd CUSTOM CHANGE. Your program every ten days. These people are now going. Gwyneth paltrow's legs. I'M GONNA grab this DVD. And I'm like we're just like not telling them like the full Trish secure right. We got to tell them the truth and she was so supportive of me. When I'm like you know I wanted I got a foam like three months of DVD's and then I've got it and then we did. The two of us like fully launched into infomercial business. Not because we wanted to go in the information business at all I mean. I don't think when the politics like I wanted to Kademi warden. I want to be on an infant. She just wanted to help women and support me to give women the opportunity to go. I'm that body type. And then Tracy Anderson has done a strategic muscle exhaustion like journey for me every ten days for ninety days for me to change and then. I'm like they're not GonNa Change. We filmed four years. Four different body types. I did eleven thousand six hundred ninety different boatlifts in three days. Because you guys who I understand you want me to understand film Utah Jazz one and done delusion of seeing those people are like it's going to be over time eleven thousand six hundred going into over.
"jane i" Discussed on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald
"You'RE NOT GONNA make everybody happy that nobody everybody's not going to love you and thank goodness 'cause we wouldn't have time if they did. They lock DOC and I. You know me well enough to know that I wanNA talk to everybody. So that wouldn't a good thing so I have to trust that what I'm doing is the right thing. And as long as my gut checks in the corner in the right direction I'm okay with it. There's always going to be somebody who looks at you and goes as you're an overnight sensation. Yeah well I am tenure overnight sensation so get used to it. Fearlessly means that I can get up in in the morning and I can look myself in the mirror and I know that I have come from a place of ethics morals integrity and you. You know there's so many things to me that I won't say yes to doing something if it's out of my control because I am not saying I'm a control freak doc. But it's because I have to make sure it's my reputation on the line and if I'm GonNa live fearlessly than I have to guard my own reputation Asian and make sure that I can go out there and if anybody challenges or says anything I can go. Okay thank you. I appreciate your opinion but this is the way it really really as you know. It's interesting because part of living fearlessly as I I had to. I was challenged to tell my story in four minutes. I had to tell my story from growing up to where I am today. And that's not easy to do it. You know. It's not easy easy to do. So I did take it and speeches sixty minutes beaches in and pull it right back but you know what I realized Lisa. You know what came out as I was doing that. And it was such a revelation revelation. For me I real- I realised never in my life when something has happened to me and I've had health issues. I've had all sorts of things I've never gone. Oh God Y me like why is there always me. Why couldn't it be somebody else? I've always gone okay. Why now what am I supposed to learned from this absolutely or importantly what am I supposed to do with it to help somebody else? Hence the reason for the book and that to me was living fearlessly. Because as you know I didn't hold anything back in that book like I ripped my my heart out laid it on my sleeve to bleed and that if that isn't living fearlessly every tell every time I tell that story it's like it was. It happened ten seconds ago. Go Ten minutes ago twenty years ago but it doesn't leave you so fearlessly means getting up in the morning having the the belief in yourself that it no matter what happens as long as you go forward with integrity morals. You know that you can your. I have to be a role model for my daughter and I've decided to be a role model for other women out there so to me. You gotta live fearlessly in order to do it absolutely well. I think one thing that you'd like authentically naturally organically honed. Quite beautifully for yourself is because you have a Paul saw people and because you're very much in tune with your own vulnerability you know so you've shown up. I mean by showing up for yourself that puts you in a position to truly be able to show up for other people and taking the life experiences that have transformed transform your life good bad indifferent and knowing that you are relatable people can relate to you because you talk about the uncomfortable things things you talk about the harsh realities you do address the elephant in the room whether it be adorned with a pink or a Blue Glennbeck you know so I mean you do and and you know that's what kind of breaks the ice for other people because you're speaking what other people are thinking or questioning out loud and so for your level of expertise your inner strength for what it is you do in your business that would make you the expert to open up this dialogue with people I just I just WanNa say thank you very much Jane. You're doing very very important work and you're doing work. That really does impact all of us. Some people aren't ready to have that discussion listen some people do want to continuously buried their head in the sand or some people think. Oh you know we're gonNA live forever and they think it's always someone else's story or it's going to be someone else who's met with crisis at the front door bringing delivering bad news. Whatever the case may be? But you know you're very tuned into the pragmatic realist realist Reality that is before all of us and again. None of us know when it's going to be our time we take for granted that we're GonNa wake up each morning and we're all going to be equally granted into twenty four additional hours in which to carry out our lives and so fill our dreams and to do whatever it is that we deem to be important but there is no such guarantee in fact you and I could end this call and one of us could be gone within an hour if not less. There's no guarantee so absolutely so I wanna give you the opportunity once again Jane. Where can people connect with you? Jane Office DOT COM.

But it's all about helping people to build businesses to get their lives in order to you. Know whatever and I swear to slip something in Lisa back to that linked in posting. I said about leaving eleven years ago. You wouldn't believe how many people set me direct messages and said can I chat with you because I'm at the same point in my life and I couldn't believe your transparency your authenticity your vulnerability the what you put out there. Because I thought I was in this all by myself and I'm like oh I didn't like that's not why I put it out there but I thought wow so you know people out there like this so we've all got us support each other in. It's not do you support women over men let support everybody. Let's just laugh how's he. Let's be kind and back to what you said. Please stop as a society. Could we please stop waking breaking up in the morning and before we even come out of the fog. Think about that First Cup of coffee or stand up instead of going. Oh God what a crappy day that was yesterday. I got shit to do today. Why don't we just go dear? God thank you for letting me wake up on the right side of the dirt because the alternative is not good and just stuck there for a minute because like you said nothing is guaranteed there. There is nothing guaranteed. My thirty nine year old has been believe me didn't walk out that door that morning take he was not coming back. He was immortal. He was gonNA live today. Hey you know be like forever and you never know when your time is out so the only thing I want to be able to do is to when when I go when he went there were over five hundred people in the church at the funeral and when I was preparing the Bittu area I never once thought about. He gave it off for the office. You Know Yada Yada. It was about the man the father the husband the brother Blah Blah Blah it was about his involvement in my daughter's school and her daughter school community. The market left in whatever that all I want is when I go I would like people to be able to say own. My goodness she paid it. Forward began spot. That's why I was put here took me until I was fifty five to figure out who I was supposed to be when I grew up. I I know exactly why God put me on the face of this earth and I know what my purpose in life and as a result my passion is aligned with that and and I don't deter from that you. Can you control whatever you want at me and I know it's the same with you. Lisa and I think that's part of living fearlessly that no matter or how many hours get slung at yet. Yep Eat flecked deflect deflect next and. That's where I am beautiful beer. Aw now for being cognizant of time of course if there was I mean everything that we covered here. In this finite period of time it was all paramount it was all pivotal. It was all essential but if there was one absolute takeaway that you would hope deliver the listening audience the podcast subscribers walk away with. What would that be in all of your messaging? Jane I will. Why do you do this to me? Yeah I I sort of knew this questions coming from our last one but I was like all where she gonNa take the Detroit Semis this you know what I think. It's about being kind to yourself herself. life short enjoy the ride. Love live laugh learn I am the way I work with. My clients is we start with life and we work work into life not the opposite way around because like I said at the end of the day I never thought about you know that was part of his eulogy. And it's just it's it's a short ride just get on the roller coaster and enjoyed joyous. Be Kind along. The way became to yourself be kind to others and I go back to my mantra that I lift by. We have an obligation to ourselves into those. We love to live this to leave this world in an organized manner. Because that's the legacy of love you leave behind beautiful beautiful.

"jane i" 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.
"jane i" 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..

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.

She was amazing Generis. Yeah Yeah Yeah well now you. You came from a place where people don't go into show business. You mean yes outside of Yeah Yeah Yeah and is it. 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. I'm mostly English which nobody ever weird father. I'm barely Swedish in my DNA. I don't know how that have. They brought it. 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. A black German heritage is remember everything the German people around nine thousand nine hundred ninety two nine hundred forty one they really they were on fire right so the Swedish was a lot easier co yeah. They're Nice. They're a nice but depressed in the winter. The leaves Shit. They're depressed. Yeah there are there. are that was fantastic kind of hand yeah. 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. I think he got up to vice president but just a really solid wonderful guy and people still say to me how you know. How's Your Dad. My Dad's gone for fifteen years now by you know we just loved. Your Dad. He yeah good solid plateau. No he was just really on my mom's. My Mom's dad was like that he was. He was everybody he just. He didn't even work really hard just like he sold real estate and he sold insurance. insperity mostly just had an office in Downtown York Ville Illinois and played cards. Isn't that great. 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..
"jane i" 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..
