I hope not because I hope not but there is i. think there is another Jenny slate who is a singer and she very graciously along time ago gave me her twitter handle 'cause she was on it, I? Ironed yeah. Those really Nice Really Really Nice I. Still. Think about that. That was like. Yeah. So I have I have jenny slate G. has something else now supply a friends. Of Her. So congratulations on your debut as producer on your upcoming film. The sunlit night Did. You feel more powerful walking around the streets of Hollywood or a Sundance where movie premiered your last year like oh excuse me producer here. Now. Show. Really wish. To understands with no I didn't at all. Like many ways that one can be a producer you now. Are Movies filmed didn't Arctic Norway and in general just to get the equipment there and figure out how to get a crew to shoot. There was a logistical puzzle that really took some genius work of Michael Clark who produced the movie. I. Did not like figure out how to get a drone. Like you know things like that but but it is nice to understand the amount of choice making that goes into making a film and I think that will stay with me even on these were I I just show up as a performer yet. Definitely. So like you said, the film takes place in Norway where you actually went to film during the summer. How did you cope without actually never setting their? It's funny. That's what people usually ask it with that kind of undertone of. Did you go crazy? But. I really liked the sunlight end I when I usually sleep with the light on like my fiance isn't they're very afraid of the dark. Okay. I've said this a million times. But I grew up in a haunted house and it was haunted and. That's just a scam. But it's it feels very issue for me and so anyway, I really liked the twenty four hours of sunlight I don't think everyone did. I want to ask so many questions about this haunted house where we someone time right now. So your character in the film Francis is a painter who heads out to the Arctic to try to make art better and reconnect with yourself. How did you find yourself connecting to her when shooting the movie? I think Francis Central Struggle of like. Feeling that the world is acting on her and really not quite understanding what powers she possesses to become active and and. Make decisions about what gets in her paths are something that I felt myself like Oh. Gosh I. Really I really feel that the world is powerful I feel that my ambitions are powerful. I'm not quite sure what my central abilities are yet an if they even match what my dreams are and like therefore also our my dreams inappropriate aren't they just not gonNA come true are they just like only fantasies rather than something I'm actually on the past get closer towards, and so I'm a very poor visual artists like I'm very, very bad and I just never been able to be good in I think that's really weird because I genuinely do kind of like my personal taste. Like I like what I like aesthetically but is someone were like cool make a painting that you would want in your house I am not able to do that. Very, fair yeah I mean same. People. Are Basically. Magicians I feel like Canvas and made into art I went to one of those paint nights and it didn't go. No data man yeah. So Jenny Ucla made the decision to stop voicing the character of MRI on big mouth and for those who don't know Mris a biracial character whose fathers black and white can you tell us a little bit about what went into that decision? I can. But. I will say before we speak about it that it's something that needed to happen it's not about me. While I am not at all like a freed of it or afraid to talk about it, I don't think I should be getting any attention for it if you view it as a whatever you view as. I think it should call attention to the situation at hand which is, which is one that many white people. Can immediately sort of like act to change, and so I think I as a white person was looking around the world in the last couple of months in thinking there's something that I genuinely don't understand and I should understand it and there's there can be shame and other feelings that come into that but those are. At least for me the impetus to make the change and so I looked around my life and I could see very clearly where my reasoning was flawed end and racist. Which is scary word for white people to stay because they can feel like it means like, Oh that person you know I'm the same as the person that like drove the car through protesters. and. Fell to me it's not enough. To be posting or to be protesting, what can I do and so so that's that's what was up from. That's that's really great to hear especially in so many people when they do finally like Hash, those questions themselves, they stick with the shame part they get to I am ashamed of X., and then they stick with that without finger. Okay. Well, how do I fix that? Yeah, and you know your shame can so often be. Someone. Else's burden like angels feels so bad to feel shame obviously but that can quickly go to like I'm sharing in. Comfort me. You know I I I. It's been interesting to me in his time to think about it just in terms of how a shame exist for me in my personal relationships and that I know enough at this point if I'm like, oh I, don't like that. I. You know I I lost my temper or whatever with.

Hey friends. I'm his Brown and I'm Casey Rackham welcome to Buzzfeed's news o'clock. Okay this week we are revisiting some of our favorite interviews we've done restart to earlier this year. So each day this week, we'll be bringing you two of our favorite news o'clock conversations. Today's show kicks off with an interview from late July that we did with Bob the drag Queen Ru Paul's drag race season eight winner, and star of the HBO Maxine were here. Welcome back you might know her for her stand up special suspiciously large woman. You may recognize her as the winner of the eighth season of repulsed drag race. He stars alongside drag race Alumna Eureka and Shangila and the HBO. Series we're here. We're honestly just thrilled to be joined by Bob the drag Queen, that afternoon Bob. Oury. Hall Great. So on the show you Eureka at chancellor visit small towns mostly in the American south and you adopt some local first timers to put on drag show your from Columbus, Georgia did any of these towns remind you of home. Well. That Muslim we would also. Consider this. House. Idaho Branson Missouri. A lot of. Southerners who call brands and Missouri. Missouri. So I'm pretty sure. We do go to rust in Louisiana and Spartanburg Carolina as well. Anyway there's the point the point is I mean They reminded me of home because, of course, everyone has these ideas of these small towns but then there's A town. People who have ideas of like what a trump supporter is with us alike, but my parents were there different. I see you. Your nasty trump's parents. But for the record, my mom does not support drops. But. So it'd another remind me by advocates IC- you know I have a much more nuanced view of Columbus Georgia. On the show there's a lot of fear judgment in these areas especially before the drag shows, how does that compare to what you experienced in your journey to drag? Is SORTA DRAG here in New York City. I'm in Manhattan right now, those of you listening. Same shout out wait where are you? In Manhattan East Harlem East Harlem in Washington is A. Are you. I'm in Los Angeles Los Angeles what I mean no one's perfect. No one's. My I was really surrounded by lots of amazing people specifically in the crime. I've seen I don't I really don't even have that many friends who identifies strength to on or not we're at least. And also what I came these realize they also had these microcosm of that as well like in twin pazder is a vibrant small but vibrant drag community happening into. So it's not just a drag show in. We're here. There's so many emotional heartfelt scenes between friends and family members. Some of the people are having confrontations. For instance, about hardship they faced when they came out some are having loving conversations about how grateful they offer the support system. Had you ever been part of something like that before with this much like emotion on display and you having to help people process it? Don't really. I will say this being a drag race grow a lot of people do come up to you in bare their souls to you because they feel like your you had a hand in their happiness and I can acknowledge that maybe I somehow encouraged happiness but also like people take ownership of their own joy. Tell me in intense or intimate things before being on we're here. There are also a lot of personal transformations on the show. Were you surprised by any of them or was there one that really impacted you the most? Well the one that came to me a lot was tanner in Branson Missouri who was struggling with. His career identity in his Christian identity. and He seems to really figure it out and if you go on his Instagram now she's as as day long. It also seems a lot happier than he was when. When I was there like disease that really figured ignace out. So. Shifting Gears your season was actually the first full season repulsed drag race that I watched through. As it aired I was heike thrilled that you took the crown of me do right. I've gotta ask them what was your favorite dumb purchase that you made after winning the hundred thousand dollars. Oh. I'm really not terribly frivolous. Like a bunch of like silly purchases but there's got to be these one that's like all right I. got the cash I'd I'm throwing it at this I, normally would not. But so we were out shopping one day and I a pack a lot of your purse or carry affecting pack every day and I was really cheap fanny packs really really cheap painting Paxton, Nylon suckers that will fall apart. Two dollar they really she really cheap shit and I was out shopping with Asia. Aharon Kimchi. you need a designer bag and I was like I'm just not that I. Hear You. That's not me. Anyway. They can visit me in one day by burberry penny pack and a verse Saatchi? Backpack. WHO. So so those are probably my two of my most ridiculous. My Fanny. Pack your area around a lot. She's So. You're new. York Queen where the pandemic hit first and hardest house the drag community been coping with Gordon to. The answer is. been adapting, but it's is not great. I mean one of our bars just announced today that it is if you've. announced. They weren't closing more drag bars announced. It is closing source evidence Berkow therapy here in new. York? City. Announced it will not be reopening after a that really hit a lot I do therapy. I was different I think three years. A lot of my friends worked there in they hire a lot of drag queens. So starting like how we're going to come out on the other side of this yeah there's a even in L. A. recently I'm a queer woman, and one of our places has to monthly dance shows that they put on that's being closed because they can't have that dance space anymore because of corona virus and it really it actually, it really impacted so many people emotionally because they didn't realize myself included how much it means to that queer community to have that space especially. For Women there's Queer man loves to party and we'll do it really. In the clear woman space, there's probably to be great. You're hot rabbit in. In New York City there was like a monthly or bimonthly a dance party whereas gay guys alike, Monday Tuesday winning. Saturday. We. On Sunday we go out but instead we just do Karaoke. Because I got arrest of. So. I can understand how impactful that could be. So one of the things that you know dragged me has been doing trying to adapt has been doing a bunch of videos instagram and you. Can do that with some your fellow former drag racers, and in one of them in particular, you're talking with season nine runner-up peppermint and you bring up a certain article about Rupaul owning property out in Wyoming.

It started when she co hosted big terrific with Maxa vestry past guest and gave Lebron future guest I hope it was a weekly comedy shown Williamsburg Brooklyn and it was the best or my favorite for years back when there was live comedy. Still it eventually morph into a monthly show at the Largo in. In. Los Angeles and Janney was just so hilarious and specific in free and open on stage. It was indescribable. The issue was for many years, describing her comedy was the only option because Jenny refused to record or film her stand-up eventually Janney became known for other things. There was one season on SNL, which he sometimes credits for the starter, her terrible awful stagefright, which he still has never really got an over, there was marcel.

Weird's a hard to describe book shape thing that's part memoir part short story part feminists, spiritual texts, part collection of magical impressionistic pieces of writing filled with gentle sensitive creatures, which Jenny credits for saving her life.

Did you feel more powerful walking around the streets of Hollywood or Sundance where the movie premiered last year like Oh. Excuse me producer here. Gosh I really wish. Method true understands with no I didn't at all, but. Ender like many ways that one can be a producer you now our movies filmed in Arctic Norway, and in general just to get the equipment there and figure out how to get a crude shoot. There was logistical puzzle that nearly took some genius work of Michael. Clark, who produced the movie and I did not like you know figure out how to get a drone into. You know. Things like that, but but it is nice to understand the amount of choice. Making that goes into making a film and I think that will stay with me. Even up as a performer. Yeah, definitely so like you said. The film takes place Norway where you actually went to film during the summer. How did you cope with Assad? Actually never setting there, it's funny. That's what people usually ask it with that kind of undertone of. Did you go crazy? but I really liked the sunlight end I, when I usually sleep with the light on like my fiance isn't. They're very afraid of the dark. I've said this a million times you know, but I grew up in a haunted house, and it was haunted and might think that's just a scam. But it's it feels very true for me so anyway. I really liked the twenty four hours of sunlight. I don't think everyone did. I want to ask so many questions about this haunted house where we. Time right now. So your character in the film Francis is a painter who out to the Arctic to try to make her art better and reconnect with yourself. How did you find yourself connecting to her? When shooting the movie? I think Francis is central struggle of like. Feeling that the world is acting on her, and really not quite understanding what powers she possesses to become active and and. Make decisions about what gets in her path. Are something that I felt myself like Oh, Gosh I believe I really feel that the world is powerful I feel that my ambitions are powerful. I'm not quite sure what my central abilities are yet, and if they even match what my dreams are and like therefore, also our my dreams inappropriate are, aren't they just not gonNA come through. Are they just like only fantasies rather than something I'm actually on the past like get closer towards an end so I'm a very poor visual artists like I'm very very bad. And just never been able to be good and I think that's really weird because I genuinely do kind of like my personal taste. Like. I like what I like aesthetically, but is someone like cool. Make a painting that you would want in your house I am not able to do that. Very Fair yeah same. People. Are Basically Magicians I feel like? Canvas and made into art. I went to one of those nights and it didn't go well. Yeah so Jenny recently made the decision to stop voicing the character of MRI on big mouth, and for those who don't know Mris a biracial character whose father is black and mother's white. Can you tell us a little bit about what went into that decision? Yeah. I tend, but I will say before we speak about it that it's something that needed to happen. It's not about me. While, I am not at all like afraid of it or free to talk about it I. Don't think I should be getting any attention for it is if you view it as a whatever you view it as. I think it should call attention to the situation at hand which is which is one that many white people. Can, immediately sort of like act to change and so I think I as a white person was looking around the world in the last couple of months in thinking, there's something that I genuinely don't understand and I should understand it, and there's there can be shame and other feelings that come into that, but those are at least for me. The impetus to make the change, and so I looked around my life, and I could see very clearly where my reasoning was flawed. End and racist which is I, think a scary word for white people to stay, because they can feel like it means like I'm a bad person. You know I'm the same as the person that like the car through protesters. And a cell to me, it's not enough. To be posting or to be protesting. What can I do and so so that's that's what was up from that's that's really great to hear especially in so many people when they do finally like Hash, those questions themselves they stick with the shame part they get to. I am ashamed of X.. And then they stick with that without figure. Okay well. How do I fix that? Yeah, and you know your shame so often be. Someone else's burden like angels feel so bad to feel shame obviously, but that can quickly go to like I. Am a shaking and you know and comfort me. Selena. I, it's been interesting to me in this time to think about it just in terms of how. Shame exists for me in my personal relationships, and that like I know enough at this point, if I'm like Ooh I don't like that I. You know I I. I lost my temper or whatever with my partner, the way to apologize to them and make it better is not to like. Hang my head and be a wet blanket all week, but to sort of be like I did that i. see what I did. I don't want that I did it either I would like to change that. I did that, but I can't saw. I'll just keep changing going forward. Making a better it's, it's an interesting processing it's it's I think it's not just cultural or external. It's actually really internal deeply personal. All right so to shift gears entirely to ask you about another role used to play Catherine from your twenty thirteen web series.

"An instagram. Live with hairstylist Kristin Brown this weekend and was asked she'd ever cut her hair short again. Barry responded that she have to in order to take the role in the unnamed project. Saying quote, it's really important to me to tell stories, and that's a woman. That's a female story. It changes to a man, but I want to understand the why, and how of that and yes, quick note, Berry also called his character a woman, even though as a trans man so. The backlash game quickly for Berry with many comments, reminding her that Trans. Men Aren't just women. Playing dress up. Berry apologized on twitter. Monday night saying in a statement quote. As assist Gender Woman I now understand that I should not have considered this role and that the transgender community should undeniably have the opportunity to tell their own stories Halle Halle Halle. Heino and whoever Halle Haley, and also whoever told her to take the role. Of the role name names Halley put. I was it was my agent. It was this production company. This is the name of the movie in this direction. Because if they came to her with this role, then clearly, they're not doing the legwork necessary to make this movie in the first place, so I feel like we should probably know about it I feel like when a lot of like actors or in the past I've heard that there's like a transgender role. They hear like prestige. Etcetera and it's like no other way for you. Get an Oscar way for transgender story to be told with someone who is transgender playing a character. Yes, yes, it is and let them when the Oscar. This time exactly exactly, this is actually similar to There's this new show called Love Victor, which is the T. spinoff from love Simon and the main character. The actor who plays the character isn't gay in real life. And they did this interview where they were like I interviewed My cousin, who's gay and I'm like Oh. Okay, all you need now is to know someone who's gay for you to take that role, so it's obviously it's still a persistent problem in Hollywood. Even though there's been so much backlash, you can point back to you. Know I- Monday learn their lesson one day. Maybe. When we come back, we've got special guests. Jenny slate with us.

That's not real although I did write this book like a lot while I was depressed. I realized that I wanted to get kinda close to the phrase. I died without people thinking that I was actually GonNa, kill myself, but like I was like some things are happening that really make me feel so sad that they're kind of like killing me, and so this is a piece that I wrote about having to listen to sort of a false ally or a misogynist who? Wants to stay in the center of a conversation that is not about him. It's called I died listening. I died Oh. God I did talk. Some man was standing right in the middle of the room, talking about how he knew that now is the time for men to listen, and he was proud to say that he knew how to listen, but strangely he kept talking for so long. And I was the one who was listening, and so then what happened was that my head twisted around on my neck and face the wall. But that didn't seem to bother him, and it certainly didn't stop him. Because I guess he was on a roll, and then he just walked around to the other side of me and kept talking. And what he was saying was so obvious, but backward in wrong. But to tell him that would have caused a big bus stop, and even though my head was on backwards, and my brain felt you know not at its best. I was still aware that two very bad choices were being shoved at me. Tell him that he's right, or at least on the right track, and therefore lie, and also abandoned myself and cause more damage by letting his ignorance and monologue. Go on forever or tell. Tell Him. No, he is not even close to correct and the fact that he has punched diffic-. Eating and instructing, and not actually conversing is a sign that he does not even remotely understand, but then after seeing that I would have to weather the storm of his humiliation frustration, and somehow end up feeling bad about myself like I should have been gentler and treated him like a child who simply doesn't know any better. Or should I have been grateful that he was interested in talking about listening. But then again he was demanding to be treated like a man who does know how to listen, but he was asking me to only listen him and lied him, and maybe give them a price. And I was so chilled by the reality of having to choose between bad and worse that my heart came flash frozen, and then it cracked in half, and so what I'm basically saying is that my heart broke almost right away and then I thought. Oh great now I've got a backwards head and the broken thing. I tried to sit very still, but inside of me. The blood couldn't go around because there was no working heart to pump it and he was still talking. Even still, and what happened, then was that my backwards head, which was already under a fair amount of stress from facing the wrong side of my body, and only offered a bad. The man. And then the wall. Well my backwards head sort of tore off at the neck, and dangled down, just hung there for quite a while, which was unsightly and embarrassing. Oh no I didn't want to look ugly. The man was getting irritated because I guess I was making a face and rolling my eyes, but what was hard about that was that my head was dangling upside down, and so my eyeballs word to be. They're rolling around. He started to ask ten defensive questions to which the answer was clearly supposed to. No the problem, isn't you? It's other worst men who do crimes and things like that. Although it was him, and it is probably all of us. Oh, as my eyes roll back in my head and I saw into my own mind I caught a glimpse of some old messages scrawled on the walls in there, and I thought the. The bad thing has gotten into us and we all need to get it out of us. And when I started to think about how it is certainly all of us that have a bid of this bad thing in us. The shards of my frozen heart really began to prick at me, and my dangling head became as heavy as a wrecking ball, and then my head, just completely disengaged from the rest of. It fell off and it bunked down onto the floor. I felt it will slightly away, but I didn't know how far it had gone, and that was stressful because I wanted to have some control over my head. But I didn't want to be rude by kneeling down and feeling around on the floor for the head, because that might make it seem like I was distracted or not listening. And the man was already so strangely angry, even though I was the one falling to pieces and everything he was saying was in favor of keeping himself together, and also never changing, even though everything he was saying was being set, dismantle and de-legitimize humane system I believed in the one that demands equal rights and good old, old-fashioned empathy, the one that would strip him of his excessive privileges, the one that celebrates things being various multi plural open, and requires him to explore being truly vulnerable. I wanted him to understand that. Being vulnerable is a different thing for everyone. Is it developed in specific skill involving personally specific actions that are terrifying, but I couldn't really get a word in edgewise as they say. I really did feel concerned about where my head might be and I could feel my blood as it stalled inside of myself, I was taking a breath. Maybe every three minutes and I started to worry that you know this was not going to work out for me because that's just not enough. It's nowhere near the amount of breath that he was getting to suck in and smart out. But then again I didn't WanNa seem like I wasn't being attentive because. I had let them in on a terrible secret. which is that many men interrupt? Regard Women and do it religiously and don't even notice that they're doing it, but also gained power by doing it even if they do it without thinking without what I guess, you would call consideration and so now. If I ever interrupted the man, he would tell me in my own language how painful it is to be interrupted. He would explain in a voice that sounded so much like my own. How I am not consider it even though I am considering a lot an yes, that would confuse me because he would sound just like me, even though he wasn't me and had never had any of my experiences or experiences, even much like my own I was now in a position of being a hypocrite if I didn't honor his experience of my experience. In an effort to be helpful, I had revealed the terrible secret. And I guess it made the man feel so scared and defensive that all he could do is to appropriate my whole experience as his, and then accuse me of starting the problem. My.
"jenny slate" Discussed on The Guilty Feminist
"Time. The safest thing you can do is go back to your hotel room and get into bed. Or House and Robert Downey says on my house is an hour away, and I say well. My hotel is right here. And I want you to get hurt. Physically when you've just been emotionally hurt. And he says thank you so much. You're lovely and very pretty. My name is Robert, Downey Junior. And I say I know I'm Deborah Frances White. We've both got three names. What are the chances at? He says I know who you are. I'm a big fan of the guilty feminist podcast. Why do you think I say such feminists stuff? Well. Yeah. That's that's the story. That's the little. And wouldn't just be amazing. If right now one of US said Ladies and gentlemen here he's on your. He's here. I was. I thought it was just a man. Nothing like him. The. Third. Spy Guscott. Special. Be Talking, about. This guilty feminists, the podcast in which. Noble Goals is twenty first century feminists to the hypocrisies and insecurities which the mind them. With Jenny slate and we're talking about credits, Hey! Hey. Thank you so much for coming to do this. Thank you. Do I take this thing out here, too? Just because I feel, I might be more casual feel like we're like soldiers. Sitting is definitely feel like I'm being like depositions. If I keep an eighth, have a little bit of inquiry field it makes. Much more relaxed trying trying to explain why facebook dot evil. into a microphone, the. He can't do it. No definitely come to kind of it being evil evil yet this country that doesn't seem to matter as much as absolutely should. I've noticed. I've only noticed that some of the facts get confused here with some of the absolute. You're being hysterical. Yeah, it's a bummer what's going on here? I'll tell you that. Even America suddenly. Special. It's I. mean the Mark Zuckerberg. Thing really blows me away because it's like dude, you actually could be a hero like you could. If you just like make a few policy changes, you could be like a huge hero I think he's more interested in being evil genius, Brian, I always forget about evil genius. Yeah, because I always think that I think if just vessels just said I'm going to pay my staff a good strong wage and I'll still be a multi-billionaire. Everyone would be like you're. The bar is very low for a white man. Yes, supporting hostage to impress US right even if he's a multibillionaire, but he's just like I'm just going to pay must off like I. Don't know what's minimum wage in this country. Seven dollars a copy. That's the minimum wage of seven dollars. Okay all right. This is not the process, right. Nobody knows what minimum wages because no one has owning it. Twelve dollars in California, thank you very much, and that's categorical, said that with absolute deafness. Yeah she said that if she was a man and a meeting, it didn't really know. We. We've go with it. Hundreds believed. That's fact, and if in fact it is a brand, new will be lower by tomorrow morning because of the way she said. Like hundred said his twelve bucks. which is not so let's just turned around. And when all my Stafa. Getting thirty five, he'd still be the richest man in the universe by some way, and everyone would think he was some kind of giant hero. Yeah, and I'd be willing to give him any sexual favors. He wished for sure for just I mean just for one. No just one night you know it's not a good kind comes up film. As those yeah, I think you'd have to like. Do like a play on words like something about how it like overnight shipping. And I'll tell you what I am actually the worst person at word play. I don't seem to understand what a PUN is. Apparently according to some of my friends, I'll say something going. No Pun intended and they'll say that. We didn't have one. Pun there at all go to. intendant it because you didn't. Is it like Joey from friends doesn't know what the quote monks does, so he just does not. You know actually that is one of my pet peeves is when like on a handwritten sign? People are like. We have air conditioning with air quotes on air. Thing is like. What are you making fun of me or you or you like? Conditioning, like what is it? Underlined his, what if I, put air quotes around air conditioning? We have conditioning. We have an open window, right? Like a joke, right or just it's just. It doesn't make sense they're trying to rather. Mining it. That's right. That's right pun intended. So, thank you very much for coming. We're talking today about credibility. Yes, I. Do you feel like you have credibility in an era lack credibility? I feel that I have credibility when talking about romantic relationships. Even though up until now I have only failed. including, getting divorced, and I have zero success track record in a way, but I feel like I have credibility there, but that's not a gender thing and in general i. mean maybe I just feel this way from because I started to be a comedian right when I graduated college like I was twenty two. and. A really obviously noticed right away that stand up, comedy is. You know it's like a performance John that is dominated by men and I really started to know for sure that my comedy. Although sometimes it's a belt. My gender really comes from my nature and. You can't deny that sometimes you are given credibility that you don't deserve because of your gender or whatever that I have worked pretty hard to keep it in like a silo for myself that it is just i. just think I'm credible because of what I have experienced, my vaginal, or my gender is not really a part of that, but I will say I give a lot of relationship. Advice in the people are like. But you didn't you in like? Yeah, no, no I know I know but. But in a way that I think that makes you a better relationship advice. Yeah, because you've dumped some trying and some testing. Somebody who meets the love of their life is exactly right for them at eighteen, and then just to sail through life without one person. What do they know about relationships? Only know is how to be married to Bill Sandy. What are they fucking not? They know how to be married to someone who's right for them? Yeah,.

Here's Daniel Jones editor of the modern love column for The New York Times. I get a lot of essays about about the single life and what's interesting to me is how people form families while being single and time and time again I've I've seen in these stories that We find our families. We make a family from those people who watch out for us. And in some cases cases that single person with their sort of networked family is more alive in social settings than the sort of institutionalized institutionalized couple where a long term marriage you can get very lazy socially an inward looking and so often. It's the single person who makes the family in the community. That's more sort of fresh and open and not just come so clear in her piece as she demonstrates demonstrates in the story is doing just fine with many people who love her.

I've talked to comedian actor and writer Jenny slate about how she gets it done in the last few years. She's been going through some big changes under forced divorce. Thank you can you can kind of cheer for it. I don't know if you want that. She's just starting to grapple with that on stage. Felt like every time I would be like say I'm divorced. It just came out like I was in a volcano accidents. I'm the only person that's ever happened to. I was in a mall and suddenly of all K- know what happens. It was very shocking. I'm broken now. And if you mentioned like mountains or inclines or decline them just kind of freak out and and the force of my sadness is going to ruin your life plus mind. Johnny says that after her divorce she felt like she was so sad. There was no place for her in the world since then she's been thinking harder about how to create one by there on our own allow Georgia O'Keefe or with their new partner. Ben Manages to make little nest for herself wherever she goes. Domesticity is very sacred to me. Making home is it's just like the central thing in my life when I cannot make a home in even in a hotel room I feel really lost. How do you what step one of making a home for you? What's the thing you have to do to feel like you're at home putting everything in a certain place on purpose not just like throwing shit shit down but putting everything in a certain place on purpose and starting to sort of figure out how the trains run basically like what are the paths? What are like the the paths the House that you're gonNA take the most? What can you line those paths with whether it's like or in the hotel room like where are you GonNa put Your Journal and your book so that you're just starting to create little pathways in this garden and that they mark that space? I just take it really seriously. It's it's sort of like it's so sweet it's like when you see children children playing a game and you know that they're marking out a world and you're like this is where the dungeon is and this is where the kitchen is in the castle and this and like you can't see anything but the backyard but they can see everything. That's what I'm doing and I'm doing it all the time all the time and it's always there even when I get into a car you're thinking about where I'm sitting at home sitting and what I'm touching and I just try hard to do that. Is this something that you feel like. You internalized analyzed growing up like how does this relate to your parents vibe. Scape where you like. You're kind of home that you I knew. It's an opposition really. Oh yeah big. Time time I grew up in a big haunted house. That was like just crazy. Just you know my mom's always like she feels so sad when we're not sad but she's like you you don't understand like you girls would just throw your shit around and I often believe that she needed evidence of the mess and her own sort of like physical exhaustion to show us how much she loved us and I just really. Don't that stresses me out and I genuinely genuinely loved my mom but I don't love that that that feeling of a mess and so my adult life has been like I put myself I self together. No matter how exhausted I am. I do pick an outfit. I'm just not sitting around in like something that isn't on purpose and my home. mm-hmm is organized and clean and does not need to fall apart even when I fall apart even when everything has fallen away that that at least there is this and this the clutter in our house to stress me out. Yeah I don't like it I don't I just really don't like it and Well the more that I decide how I'm going to behave as an adult of the more I observe my parents and I'm like Oh. That was the norm growing up. I either want to be like that or not or whatever so now now that I'm getting close to basically their age when I was a child. I'm thinking about that a lot. What specific things? You've thought like that is who I want to be. That that is who I don't want to be about that relationship I just it bums me out. When people don't control their tone under stress stuff really really hard? But I I like it when I can see the people working to communicate in a warm and smiley way when things are like getting a little bit stressful. Yeah and and that's something I work on and That is not something that was super modeled in our household a lot of like total. Yeah Foale Body cleanser and Like even sometimes they get a text message from my dad and it just reads like a telegram during a war from the past. uh-huh Nancy and I headed to each no room in drunk. Okay does go to the beach like chill. Let's just chill because I don't like that I don't like that level I love to be at home and have nothing to do and to be like like last Sunday we were at home and we didn't have much to do and Ben was writing and I made chicken soup and I made pound cake and that was very good for me. What do you think that a version of yourself from ten years ago like a lay twenty-something version of you would think of where you are now I think she'd like it I think it is his miraculously? I think that's what that's what myself back then. What I'm thirty seven? So twenty seven. I was just honest and L. And I think the way that I would feel is like Oh my God. There was a freedom. There that I didn't know was possible and I I am more free than ever before I mean. I don't know I'm pretty happy these days though some like Oh God am I going to get cancer the Ben and I were walking around in. DC The other day. And I just like I just love him so much without reservation like I don't I I had don't have a critique. Don't have a critique of him I think he feels the same way about me and I truly was like him.

You'd be like she has a system it's worth nearly. She lives within her process. Like why do you think that you're just teenager who can't have a process So I started to just really have one and that was getting up really really early in making things. I don't know I mean I. I'm not really saying anything original but making things into rituals yes all the rituals you came up with at that stage Really specific vic easy things go into the kitchen at five.

Yeah I love tidy starting your day early avoiding the vortex of your phone conjuring the life changing magic of tidying up there all classic pieces of advice on how to get it done and then of course. There's the old favourite how about getting a little exercise is when you're really betting Zaidi people will suggest like just work out and just lift something up. Okay this is Jenny and her new comedy special like and I was like okay. I'll just work out but never stopped smoking weed. I was just like I'll just keep smoking weed while working out and I got more and more anxious than like working out more and more and just being like why are they working and like be smoking huge hits of weed and then going to the gym and like huffing and puffing and lifting my two pounders and just being like quat fuck like why lifting these two pounders like. Why am I even trying to change my body at all? My Body is beautiful. I hate this industry that I work. And they're trying to make my body look like like the body of Billy Elliot or something just like them for trying to buck with my whole life cycle and like Patriarchy is fucking me so that I feel it in my spirit my spiritually my pussy eighty and I wasn't hurt so badly Jim is hurting my fucking pussy and then it was like why is like pussy hurt so much and then it was like my God him on drugs in my thongs on backwards. The specials called stagefright stagefright. Dave ruining diarrhea. Inducing stagefright is one of the biggest challenges that she tries tries to get it done. How long has stage fright? Been something that you've dealt with. I didn't always have it. I didn't understand it because as a child I was so eager to be a performer. And then when I started to be able to be one like in the Improv grouping college no stage fright you know just like whatever you imagine like a really really good athlete. Who knows that? They're good feels like before they win a race that they know they're about to win. That's kind of always felt. I was just like there is no negative negative outcome for me because I'm on the stage and that doesn't mean I'm going to dominate. It just means like I've gotten what I wanted but getting out of college in realizing saying I want to turn this into a career was very difficult. Tell me more about what that transition was like for you. It just wasn't available to me. I didn't have any connections. I didn't know how to become a performer. I knew enough to know that a lot of the situations that women can be kind of like. I don't know like fooled. Fooled into or whatever are just like predatory scary so I was really frightened of casting couch situation or something like that and not. Only that I really believed in the thing which was like. And you're not even hot enough to be asked to be on the casting couch like full-on misogynist brainwashing internally. Yeah it's like really feeling feeling like I don't understand where I fit in and I don't know anybody who works in the entertainment industry so It felt really scary but I didn't. I didn't ever think that I wouldn't do it really. Yeah I just had a lot of appetite and I still didn't have any fear. I definitely had a couple of experiences where I like got conned by fake acting teachers into giving them like money that my grandmother gave me and they'd be like we're going to introduce you to casting directors and then just like nothing happened told me about one of those experiences a I went to. I don't know how I found this place. But a a bunch of other suckers and I were in the community of suckers community of people who want to be actors who aren't suckers. They're just you know I mean now I think like oh I was such a sucker when I think back on. How not an expert? That acting teacher was I took a course on like how do I do for commercials It was a male acting teacher who gave another woman. I script that we had to do where we had to kiss each other. And we were playing female athletes. It was like good game today or whatever like I don't know like I don't know if you've noticed. They've never played an athlete before. No one's really like banging down the door to be like Jenny. You need to play Olympian. Is You track and Field Star. You know and I didn't get any jobs from that. Obviously and like it was just so stupid. Just genuinely dumb. Were you in the other women who are supposed to kiss each other. Like what the like did you balk at that or were you guys kind of like well like it was really young and very optimistic and I thought maybe this discomfort is part of what this is. Yeah but but it felt so seventies. I felt like I was in the deleted unfunny on cool scene from tootsie. Like I'm like Terry Gars friend that they never show just as bad acting class and I just had no idea how to start but there was just so much tenderness and heartbreak and so much hope my friends and I from Columbia. We formed our own sketch group and started to put shows up at a tiny theater. And I just didn't have fear but when I started to be on TV I started. She gets stage fright. Do you remember the first time that happened. I don't remember the first time but I remember like I got on. SNL It was like the message had been answered. The way that I got on that show was incredibly positive. Everything was cool until my first episode and I said Fuck on air and the culture of that show was really. Don't make a mistake in general. Don't make a mistake and don't let anybody see weakness and then it just hit me like a a curse or an illness. I I felt that all I was was mistakes and and weakness. I suddenly was very very frightened and didn't understand the impact that that experience would have on me because I always thought of myself as wild rather reckless and brave and suddenly I was just like you're just an idiot and so.
