"But honestly like in a horror movie. Even in a horror comedy. It's nice to have the black guy be the dufy one. Yes you know what. I mean like this instead of like the fast talking guy who gets killed quickly. Yup you know it's a it's it's nice to have The black guy Be the sort of like emotional and inspirational quote unquote like leader of this thing to make it far in. Who knows how far have you haven't seen the movie but you know to to sort of be that instead of instead of garnish you know To get the cannot be the meat of his thing and and not only be the. Oh my god. I'm so scared the whole time. You know like oh okay well. What's the situation. I really appreciate it to get to do that. And like that in the script. As well i wasn't ama- huge fan of the show that you and tim robinson created detroiters. Yes and one of the things that. I don't think i realized until six or eight episodes into the show That was unexpected. to me. was this is a show about two best friends right so the two of you are are essentially the co leads of the program yet but in terms of the structure of the world of the show. He tim is the best friend he lives in your characters world and tim robinson is white yes and i thought kosh how many thousands of times have i seen a television sitcom with a black guy. Who's best friends to a white guy and lives in the white guys world And how close to zero times. Have i seen the opposite right Was that a choice that the two of you made it. Was it like to make to make it trudel life whereas like in detroit is seventy five percent black. You know so with casting and with that world that we're like this show is going to be black primarily black show with characters who are also not you know so so make the show being A black show with tim. You know that we very purposefully so at the workplace. It's tim's legacy and tim's job but then outside of their. It's kinda like sam's world you know. So it's a very purposeful relationship like like to have tim's wife be my sister. And so that. Tim's family is my family so tim is my best friend and my brother-in-law but in the family and the family unit the do as which is the bigger family. And you get the kremlin's as well but like you know. Typically the family things are happening among the duvalier's and like the were like trying to get the clients to be black all these things because that's what detroit is you know. So those are very purposeful sort of a composition because of that composition. There's also something you don't see a lot in television in terms of race dynamics. Which is the tim. Robinson's character has black wife. Which you know. I mean if you watch television commercials in america's there's a lot of interracial couples and almost none of them have You know in heterosexual couples have a wife who has darker skinned than the husband That is something that you essentially never see him. And i just as like. Isn't that nice. They're loving couple. That has normal. Couple things going on was like again. Part of that composition was like well. What if tim grew up in my were again in my world you know restaurants and he probably mostly dated black girls like existed in that world so like him falling and also in the thing is like we spent so much time together. That like that. That we i mean we never have explored this because we waited the two seasons but like kind of how the dynamic of them started where it came from for while we never landed on whether christie and i were twins or not because we never like i was always of idea and so the idea of him marrying her was like the closest thing to marrying me that he could do Because we like maybe we can hang out all the time like. There's a photo of at. the wedding. know showed up onscreen but it's like their wedding photos. And i'm in them to like jokes. She's annoyed.

"Can a floor manager. A floor manager thing is like when you're acquiring these guys if your goal is to have them play a role if you expect them to be role players if you expect the most important thing that they do to be to be willing to learn be willing to learn and change and adapt and grow you have to. Have you have to scout human beings because not all people are ready to do that and one of the things that the giants have done. Extraordinarily well is find people who are willing to do that. Work right willing to listen to. The giants have The giants have a coach. Ellis anakin. who's a woman. She's the first yemen in uniform to be a major league coach. And you know this year. She's focused on you. Know she focuses on kind of systems with the giants which is important when you have fourteen coaches. But she's also been focused on base running and you know the main in sight of the sabermetrics revolution and the data revolution around base. Running has basically been just give up on base running right. No need you could. Don't try steal You know guys who hit home runs are more important than fast guys etcetera etcetera etcetera. It's just sort of gotten marginalized which by the way is insane as the eighty five cardinals when you think about what they did on the field. Vince coleman would chop the ball and get a single then into pitches. he'd be on third. now anything can get this guy home now. You have to bring the infield in the way we jay with the new way that extra innings are played with a guy starting on second base in the tenth inning. Like look at how much pressure that puts on the pitcher. Look at that like starting on second base. That's why you see a lot of these extra inning games. They don't go nineteen innings like we've seen before they're done in they're done in eleven. Why because there's somebody standing on second base why that's so valuable to have if you had fast get on and then steal obeys. You're now putting why. I i went to the padres. Dodgers are the padres cardinals game a few weeks ago. And when i when you to see the shift from from the stadium as opposed on tv because you really don't get the full breadth of watching the defensive shifts on tv. 'cause they're so focused on the pitcher and the catcher and the strike zone. You say to yourself man. There should be a coach on every team. That's teaching guys how to like half bunt and push it down the left field line. If you're a lefty like like a free throw you should be hitting a thousand of those that everybody but like these guys are brilliant. I think about guys with you. Know like tire woods with a golf club who can like juggle the ball twenty nine times and then take his swing and put why can't people why can't dudes just do basically a just get. It passed the pitcher and get it towards third base in between thursday's that's a hit every single time every single time. I mike you know 'cause the nearest game standing behind second base. Yeah i think in the base running area the most impressive thing. I agree with you. If i could just watch the eighty five cardinals all day i would be. I would be thrilled. That is the most fun kind of baseball like watching the kansas city royals when they won the world series so fun and just very fun however the most impressive part to me about the giants base running this year. And you know. I i put it into their first base coach. Who's also sort of base. Running specialist is that they've got austin slater stealing basis. They've got brandon belt stealing bases thirty four year old first basement who has two legs in half a knee And the reason is that they are focused on identifying every opportunity so they have the data to figure out when it is that. If they go they'll make it rhyme and they they use that data to guide the players and the players are open to learning and that kind of systemic thinking is. What leads you to get the best out of thirty four. Your old donovan. Solano or will abass so stealing a base is not simply about ross because fast guys get caught especially. If it's about the jump you get is jump. It's about the jump on the pitcher more than the catcher. It's a jump. Combination of if brandon belt is going to be running it's because they're not holding them on and the pitcher or the pitcher is in the wind up instead of the stretch with him on first or the shift is such that they're going to have a hard time covering second And if you put all of those things together what you get is you know. Austin slater a guy. With average to slightly above average speed has six or eight steals right. And that's not nothing. That's another little piece that you put on the pile it's like. The giants are focused on not messing up things so we get it right. Get a little bit more right than next time. A little bit more right the next time. It's what makes it fascinating. It makes you even though you know. We're we're again. We have our own allegiances to another team. I think that is good for baseball. It goes against the swing as hard as you can swing your launch angle as high as you can and try and just hit the ball out of the stadium. Why because is that better for baseball. No it's better for my contract. Thirty home runs. You know. I can be a joey gallo and hit one. Ninety and hit thirty home runs in eighty. Nine rb is and get a massive contract like it's all sort of it does matter aren't whereas we should explain if if the at home audience doesn't know this randy you and jason are a big cubs fan so the whole thing. Your whole thing is yeah we just about mitch. Wild thing williams. Oh my god. Don't you literally will do anything for jerome walton. I'll do anything for al further back berry foot. I'll go out. Larry go classic keith. Moreland larry jerry hill just going to say the names of guys to say name reports fun to me jamie moyer. Let's take a break when we come back. We got some crickets jesse.

"There so automatic he he and he and your strength ski share that they both have exceptional battery ball skills and the giants and their giant giant team hitting coaches teach and the players learn. You look for your pitch and you only swing at your pitch and when you swing your pitch you do it with intention right. There's no covering the plate with two strikes. There's everyone is against hitter on the giants and they are very well informed when it comes to their guesses so that's a group of people but to me the player that i'm most excited to watch on the giants and that is in a way. The most giants eighty is tyler rogers. Who's become more last the closer of the team right. he's not someone that's zaidi acquired. He someone that was on the giants was a career minor leaguer. He had been dominant in two years in triple a. and had not been able to crack the major leagues right. You know twenty six twenty seven twenty eight something like that. He's a submarine pitcher. he throws his fastball. Is like eighty four miles an hour. Something larry and his devastating out patch and it really is. Devastating is an underhand curve that seems to float up into the air that is as effective as any you know. Rising forcing fastball in the league. Will the giants have had the giants have had success with a non fireball triple digit closers. Sergio romo before and like that guy didn't throw hard and he was. You're closer for a while like junk. He threw john was hardly ever new learning to predict. Yeah you never knew what he was to throw and you say to yourself man. You're watching all these guys. Throwing hundred mah in ninety eight ninety nine hundred miles an hour throw their arms out literally throw their arms out. I mean i have none of them. Have you know everybody gets tommy. John surgery now You know as comedians. Jane got tommy john again surgery. It just caught us out too. Well just how families to clean up our set now. That was rough. That was that was like you know back in the day on the on the as there was a forty two year old or forty one year old doug jones doug jones one of the great closers of his era just through seventeen different kinds of change. And i think one of the things that you've seen on the giants is a focus on effective off. Speed pitches so fast ball spin. You know pitcher like kayla baragan. Who's a really left handed reliever for. The giants has an extraordinary spinning fastball. It is not particularly fast but is very difficult to square up. He just throws high fastball. after high fastball. Right but then. You see somebody like tyler rogers or matt whistler just throws nothing but sliders just slider slider slider sliders liner which is sort of like what sergio romo did and is doing for the as right he threw that beautiful no dot slider and figuring out what people can do is what people can do exceptionally well putting them in a position to do it is where the giants excel. So it means kevin guzman who's been maybe the best pitcher in the league so far this year. They said you know. Throw that split finger. Yeah has essentially become a to pitch pitcher fastball and splitter and you know the splitter is the in my mind because i'm forty the classic giants pitch because it's what roger craig taught to every giants pitcher as bruce daddy russell yeah rick rushes suitor started bruce suit or really started as a reliever. I went back and watch. Bruce suitor in the nineteen eighty two world series and that guy was closer back. I was one of the best closers in all of baseball for years. He didn't throw much higher than ninety like his pitches. Where like eight. Eighty nine ninety. It was all because the movement behind the way. In the way you throw a fastball. It it's impossible to detect the arm motion of a fastball versus split-finger. Unless you can see the fingers split on the ball as it's coming down but that's very hard to see so if the if the pitcher is is sort of you know covering it well in his glove. You're not gonna know it until it comes out and then there's nothing you can do about it because it's still coming at a decent clip. So i mean. I agree with you so funny i was watching lance lynn former colonel pitcher who is now very successful in the white sox and really i would argue. You know right. There is like a number two guy on the on the white sox next to Lucas will get his name but he alito Who in my opinion has like the best stuff on that staff. But whether we're talking about with lance lynn. I watched him pitch a whole game in. Just every single thing he pitches is a different version of his fastball. Is what you're saying like there is no. He's not going to throw the same too fast balls in a game. he certainly won't thrown back to back. So you're gonna get your timing down and he's going to throw a ninety one mile an hour kind of cutter with movement and the next one's ninety three and then the next one is ninety five and the next one's eighty nine and there's just no way like you said it's up in time yeah. I mean the coaching staff is a big part of this because they are looking for recognizing measuring what these guys can do well so like changeups has been a big theme on the giants this year. logan webb who was a sort of be minus starting pitching prospect On the as on the giants. That's that's what they had to offer. They did not have very many high quality pitching prospects and still down. But you know logan web had been trying to blow it. Pass people trying to be a singer. Baller trying to trying all these different things right. And they just told him you've got a good fastball. And a great changeup. Just go back and forth between your fastball. Changeup infra strikes throw it in the. Just throw it. Don't mess around. Throw your great fastball. Throw your great changeup and let people deal with that yeah throw people and medical movement is the other key thing like changeups often have great vertical movement split-fingers. The point is vertical movement and vertical movement is what moves the ball out of the bats plane. When you're moving left and right you know you're basically moving along the barrel so that can be effective. You know it can be a way to hit a corner But it's not going to miss the bat whereas up and down movement is what gets you away from the back because the bachelot longer than it is wide so we knew that about base by you know. It's almost like if i could do. Analogy is like the read option like running. Sort of the rich rodriguez put out in in college football. Which is you got to moves either. The quarterback pat white runs with it or slate and runs with it. And you just look at what's coming at you and you just make one choice and so in baseball it's like you're gonna get this or you're gonna get this and we know one of those. Two things is happening. But we don't know which one and that's how we're gonna make you guess so. Here's my question. Jessie are you. I mean because it does sound. Like in the way you're describing in and i didn't really realize this i thought you were getting like the best season out of a lot of guys but the question is. Are you worried that this is just what i just described that. Like the coaches have figured out this formula with these guys and they are executing it to perfection. And that's what you need as opposed to like a san diego where you're looking at those guys being like god damn there so much talent on this team that we can allow the. They'll make their mistakes and they'll still be up there and we're building this thing locking these kids in for a long period of time in the building something that alas for a long period of time as opposed to make a margin for error is much smaller.

Silicon ringo to manley bands dot com slash sklar. That's m. a. n. l. y. b. a. n. d. s. dot com slash clark for twenty percent off manley bands the best damn rings period. Hey guys welcome back to the show. We are always thrilled to have this guy on. Whether he's doing a fantasy report at the end any will at the end of this show or were just talking about sports and life and podcasting and everything. His name is jesse thorn. And i just love to see you my man. How are you. John thrilled to be here. What a joy what it is a delight. It is a delight whenever we get together. It just makes me happy. You are one of those people in this business that we look up to that we just. We're blessed physics yet. Your your tall tall-statured six five six years or sort of medium sized timing. I would say we're fun size. But miniature shetland people show people in you are normal you tower over us in many ways but it is really good to have you on an it because i i do. Think a lot of times on this show. We try to take a cerebral approach to the world of sports in and ask the deeper questions. Why is this happening. And what are these trends. And what do they mean. Certainly at the top of the show. And that's why. I want to kind of dig into this right now and one of the reasons i wanted to have you on in john talked about having you on is that we know you are a huge san francisco sports fan and despite the fact that you yourself don't have cable tv. I know you've been following the san francisco giants run of this year and every single one of our giants fan friends. I think they're they're it's great and actually i think baseball kinda does this. And maybe you can explain it to me. If you're watching it closely a team emerges that you don't expect to emerge as like a contender and that's like superstar lists right. Yeah so well elderly superstars. I mean. I saw madison bumgarner pitched for i think was on arizona. Now the cardinals. He was just getting walked up on. And i i can just imagine like san francisco fans being like. Yeah we got rid of them at the right time. Thank of madison. Bumgarner seven inning. No hitter is a real no hitter. Let's let's talk about that. I don't i definitely don't because you gotta go nine got how many no hitters have been lost with two outs. The night or one out in the ninth. You know what i mean. It's like you gotta go online. I think seven inning games is a little dumb But if if seven innings a game in a seven inning. No hitter is no hitter. That's my feeling about it really. I think you need. I don't know. I just think like nine nine should be the this is the the plant so like what if a game gets rained out and this is in the past before we had like the covid riddled season last year. Where we started saying like a seven inning game for double headers. I'm saying what if a game gets rained out after five innings and a guy's got a no hitter he would not have been considered to have a no hitter. That's just now. What what if a guy throws nine no hit innings and at the end of nine no hit innings Does he have a no hitter. If it goes into the and relief pitcher gives up a hit No no no because income. You didn't finish the game with a no hitter right okay. What if you're what if you have like two hundred fifty million dollars are four hundred million dollars and you spend it all on ford trucks then. Is your no hitter no hitter. That's madison bumgarner. Yes take your take your motorcycle out during the season an injury your shoulder does that make. I think like that takes away. All he wants dated a woman named madison bumgarner. We team head. Dave in bumgarner. He's putting the bum back in bumgarner right now but let's start. Let's get off madison bumgarner because I believe his own fantasy. Bumgarner did yep. I'm not that okay. So here's an answer to your original line of question. I am not surprised. I'm surprised that the giants at various points. This week had the best record in the national league. But i'm not surprised. The giants are good. The giants have the giants have made a series of good baseball. Moves over the last three years that you know. It's it's like a red paper clip situation. Morons -iety the giants President of baseball operations makes a lot of moves and the end result of it has been That there are close to no weaknesses on the team. So they are getting some star level performances. Buster posey is through two months. Yeah unbelievers having maybe the best year of his career right. Buster posey pete holmes. Who's good at baseball..

Introducing Ronald Young Jr., Solvables Newest Host [TEST]

"Listeners. I want to introduce you to ronald young junior. You might be familiar with his name from other work. In podcasting leading shows like time well spent and leaving the theater. He's sometime guess contributed around. Npr's pop culture happy hour. We are really excited to make it. Official that ronald is going to be the newest host of solvable. Thank you thank you for having me. I'm so so excited to be here so publicly on the team. Believe it or not hosting solvable is not my main job. My main job is being. Ceo pushing in and pushkin over the last year in lockdown has like doubled in size. We have almost fifty people now. And it's exciting. There's a lot going on But it's sort of crowded out the time that i like to spend preparing and figuring out gas that also i'm not really a host. I don't know if you noticed that. I think i am trade. I'm an Host i have certain hosts qualities that i'm really interested in talking to the guests on the show And i have a lot of drive to learn. But i don't have that quality of hosting which i hear your voice and i really wanna know how that is done. Well first of all. I don't know if that's that's the message like we got hosted coaster said coming on all star show. I've always found it easy to talk to people. I've always founded easy to connect with folks and ask questions. And i'm curious about and mostly because as a child i was always encouraged to ask whether it was two friends. The families the teachers. And i think that's what helps with being a good host and with conducting good interviews. Which you do a great job of thank you ronald but yeah no. I think that just that basic quality of curiosity. If if you don't wanna know you can't read someone else's questions the producers on the show do suggest a lot great questions for us but ultimately you ask the ones that are your questions that have been you want. no yes. It's funny because like you know working with the solvable team. It's certainly is a team effort. But i think what makes a good host that what makes a good interviewer is the ability to read the conversation and to know when it when it needs to take a turn when it's about the pivot or when you're curiosity might push the interviewee a little deeper into the subject matter and even more comfortable and ready to answer more questions as they go so and i really enjoy doing that so this is a very exciting role for me. You do something i mean. Since were on this this topic. I do think being a really good host goes beyond just the flow of the conversation. Asking the right questions that something about creating this this environment this kind of comfort even this sense of place. And here's what. I don't feel that. I really know how to do but i hear in your voice you know in a lot of the people who are just really good shows terry gross. You know you just feel like you're at her place like you're in her world and you know in the guest is coming into her world and you feel as a listener. You're made to feel welcome and comfortable. How do you do that route. You know wish. I could say there was a trick. I wish i could tell you. Hey do this thing. And this'll this'll work but for me. It's just it's hospitality. It's really being genuinely interested in what they have to say. It's paying attention to them. Not necessarily thinking so far ahead that you can't be president in the conversation creating that warm sensitive environment it really comes from like a genuine place inside people and i think most people talk to you. We'll tell you that this is who. I am all the time. So it makes it easier for me to just bring this be to a hosting role Whereas some people. I think are very good at being a host and then you know in the rest of their lives are not nearly as hospitable or friendly and i can't say anything about ten gross but i i know that good host is being able to create that sense of hospitality in the conversation that they're having that moment. Yeah i think of the great host of my childhood dick caveat who was on. Tv obviously long before your time but back in the days before cable there only a few channels every night cabinet was having these interesting people on his show and he's charming. He's charmed by the gas and a lot of what he's trying to do. Is of course just inject wisecracks. I've got clip here. That's a good example of that it's cabot talking to the comedian don rickles. It's hard for you to be serious but it is. I think people don't admit that deep down inside. If i may be serious for a moment that you do something on stage that all of us would like to do if we had no class the other host i think about all the time as i grew up listening on the radio growing up in chicago. Two studs terkel here just as one example is studs terkel interviewing muhammad ali at one thousand nine hundred seventy five. Why do you think it is always in this particular theater. So many different people are. Why would they rooting for you. The outsider we'll i think the masses root for me because this scuffling they've been persecuted they figure by the tat taxes and whatever they've underdogs people are basically the underdogs hole and the things that i say from my people in the free involve people and the way i speak out in the title of the have and the and now let this. Stop me from recognizing every day man that thing. This is what they whether it'd be black or white. The massive people hardworking people the amazing thing about studs terkel circle. He was so good at talking to anybody today. He would have like a janitor and then he would. Have you know an opera singer. And then he would. Have you know a former vice president or politician and he just part of what was great about him with. He would talk to everybody the same way. Yeah i mean there's a sense of empathy that comes with no matter. Who's in the room. It should be able to be extended to anyone who's sitting opposite from you whether they'd be the janitor or the president of the united states. The other thing is not being afraid to ask even a question that may not sound as smart as you think it does. I think larry king wants said He was he was on. He was talking to jesse thorn. My friend hobie. Khan who wrote you negotiate anything. We grew up together. He says to me larry. The secret of your success is your dumb dumb. Is the great road to success. Because you not afraid to. I don't know tell me help me. That's a lot of interviews help. help me that. You're you're a brain search. You got brain surgery tomorrow morning. Think about it tonight when you go in the check your hands. If they're steady. And then all of a sudden you have this. Very poignant moment because larry king asked a question that is wow. I would have even sit there. I was like ronald do you. Do i do that. Also i wanna make sure that. I i do that but having that empathy allows you to be embassy to cross from you like i said whether it's the janitor or the president of the united states. Yeah so for this show. We do interviews with a particular kind of focused. How is problem solving. And how are people who have ideas about solving problems. Making the world veteran capable of making the world better. And that's the thing that can be big range of stuff. Yeah if you look out there let's say your your houses near the water and you look out there and you're just like the water seems to be creeping closer and closer. You're only thinking about what's going to happen when the water reaches your house and all the horrible things that can happen as the water continues to rise and the flooding when you when you start to think about all that it kind of changes your posture versus if you think how do we stop the water. How do we get the people out. How do we keep my house. Dry and think in terms of This podcast i'd like that it's pivoting from us talking so much about what the issue is because in most cases we know what the issue is what we really need to know is. What's the best way forward. How can we like either neutralize whatever. This problem is or at least adjust our lives so that the problem isn't what it is. Do we need to build a bridge. Maybe we need to build our houses higher whatever that means in order to To get out of the water. I think it gives a bit of optimism to the world

'The King of Talk': Remembering Larry King

"Larry King has died. He was 87 in a career that spanned 60 years. Larry King interviewed just about everybody. Reporter Jeff Lunden has this appreciation. With his trademark suspenders and his deep baritone voice tinged with a Brooklyn accent. Larry King spoke with Presidents George Bush is our honored guest for the full hour. Next on Larry King Live World leaders Moammar Qaddafi. The leader of the nation of Libya, celebrities, the brilliant Barbra Streisand, authors, scientists, comedians, athletes and on and on and on. I'm always engrossed in the guest. Larry King spoke with Jesse Thorn on the turnaround podcast in 2017. I'm always listening to the answer. I'm always learning, So I guess I'm better every day at learning. The Brooklyn born King actually was an indifferent student, but said he always had an innate curiosity when we would go to dodge it. All my friends wanted autographs at the injury. I never asked for an autograph, but I would walk with the players is they're going to their cars asking questions. Why'd you bunt? Why they do this in the third inning. My curiosity is still insatiable. King began his career is a DJ in Miami, and it's where he got his name is well. When a station manager told him his given surname, Zeiger was too ethnic. He chose King from a liquor ad in a newspaper. By the late 19 seventies, King had an overnight talk show on national radio. Then the 1985 Ted Turner hired him for his new network, CNN. Media commentator and author. Bill Carter, who's a CNN contributor, says the timing was perfect. Picking up something like Larry King may love sense because he had Establish himself kind of as a guy who could get big guests. They could have big names and promoted and became sort of the linchpin of their prime time lineup, and King stayed there for 25 years. Some critics complained that he was too chummy with celebrities and lob softball questions. It is guests. His strategy was I'm never gonna make the guests uncomfortable. And that means not only will they come back, but they'll tell their friends. He won't ask you about that ugly divorce of yours. You know, he'll ask you about your favorite movie, so he didn't challenge people, But he did get information. He was pretty good at that, like when he talked with ex President Richard Nixon. Well, I don't want to dwell in the Watergate thing that's been covered so well. But some personal things when you drive by Those collections of buildings. The hotel the two apartment houses the office building, You feel weird, funny. No, I never give it a thought. Never given a thought. Never given a thought. That's one place where you just don't look back. As far as Watergate is. I know you don't look up at the buildings themselves. Not at all. Not a matter of fact, I've never been in the Watergate. Larry King famously didn't do a lot of preparation before his interviews, the less I know. Better Now, That sounds strange to people. Like If you wrote a book. I wouldn't read the book for interview do because I would then know too much about the book and I'm in the same boat as the audience. They haven't read the book, but King knew the national zeitgeist. He covered the first O. J. Simpson trial every night, says Bill Carter. He basically started the cable monomania move. We're going to just cover this story. That's it In a way. It was perfect for life because it was celebrity oriented. It was in the news, but it was not political. Ultimately, CNN canceled King show because it wasn't political competition from Fox and MSNBC took its toll on the ratings. But King was a survivor. He was married eight times and had Quinn couple bypass surgery after a massive heart attack, and King took his talk show to streaming video and kept on working for NPR news. I'm Jeff Lunden in New York.

Alex Winter on how he and Keanu Reeves brought George Carlin's touching cameo to 'Bill & Ted Face the Music' (spoilers!)

"Jesse Thorn. Our guest is Alex Winter you probably know him best as bill from bill and Ted along with Keanu reeves he starred in bill and Ted's excellent adventure bill and Ted's bogus journey and the brand new movie bill and Ted face the music. Alex is also a director who's made several documentaries. His latest just came out a couple of months ago it's called show biscuits. It features interviews with former child stars about how their time working in the entertainment industry affected them. Let's get back to the conversation. There's a lot in this in this movie also about parenthood and the ties that bind to their and in particular how children kind of actualize the dreams of their parents in some ways for good and bad. I saw that theme also and show Biz kids. Your documentary that made me wonder if you saw parallel there to do you find that particularly compelling. I was raised by two artists. My parents were modern dancers. My mom had company in London, which is where I was born in my dad ultimately had a company in the Midwest. which is still going on when we moved to the states house quite young. I started out as a child actor professionally by like nine or ten I was working professionally by twelve thirteen I was in two long running probably shows back-back. Took me all the way into college so. My relationship to. My parents and to my family and the complexity of that and this idea of I wouldn't call destiny. That's the sort of of the movies that. But you know this idea of expectation and what is your life supposed to be, and of course, it's never going to be that and it shouldn't be that and and and how do the children affects the parents? How do the parents affect the children and of course now I'm a dad and so how'd now it's a triple layer cake right And Those are all those drams or fusing together and crazy ways and I had really wanted to make a film that allowed people who had experienced this firsthand meaning people that come up as child actors. I wanted them to be able to express the very nuanced layers of of that experience. Intimately I just had not seen that done and I had. you know obviously had done it myself in private, but I'd never kind of attacked at. So you that was very satisfying to be able to make and it was really odd to try to make show Biz because for the first time about ten years ago I couldn't find financing and it was exactly the concept. So it was very very strange to. Lovely. But strange to start making the film, shoot a bunch of interviews go away, make bill and Ted be dealing with you know Ted's problems with his dad our issues with our daughters live and our destiny that didn't end up the way it was supposed to in how did that impact everybody and you know, and then of course, like acting for the first time gangs I left act the acting business in after doing Dylan Ted to really Very consciously, and so acting again and I'm making a movie about child actors about parents and their children and it was it was like Oh did this all really need to happen at once was that necessary? I my Gosh. Every aspect of my entire life right now. So Yeah it was lovely and heavy Frankly yeah. Tell me about that decision to kind of I. Think you said, disappear for a minute and then come back and be doing more behind the scenes work than acting. Well. We talk about it in in show Biz kids and it's really not uncommon. It's. It's you know I had started acting I had a very, very public life from around ten years old to about twenty five on nonstop even through college. I was still acting on TV and doing commercials and TV shows. Nonstop and after bill and Tattoo amid and other film called freaked I was just psychologically. I was just worn out and I knew. That I was not I had some friends around me that were crashing hard at a couple that actually died. It was a pretty heavy scene. For Lot of us that had come up because we're all around the same age. So a lot of us were trying to transition from from you know sort of youth in the business too young adult business. We're not having the best time of it and and at the same time I gone to film school and was very very committed to my work as a writer director But it you know for me, I needed to make a conscious decision to get out of the public eye and just go live some normal life and I didn't feel like I'd really gotten to do that through pretty. Formative Adolescence and postal license and. Evan Rachel Wood speaks about this really well in the in the movie sodas will we? All everyone had the same experience I was sitting across from Diana Kerry, the hundred year old woman who was baby peggy, and she literally laid out my entire life story was completely jaw dropping. And that's what had happened to her when she had to really figure life out and she had to get away from the business and. And just be in the world and that's what I did I left. I left my acting representation and I moved and started a production company in London and I just shot commercials and wrote scripts and had a kid and live like regular Joe and. Got My head together and did some growing up and when I felt comfortable again, I started training again to act that was a while ago I just wanted to act for myself I didn't WanNA act. NAFTA, worry about it for paycheck I trained for a long time and it was just coincidentally had started kind of rumble back into life. But it was really lovely. It was a great way to come back can't owner. He's like, what am I, very, very dearest and closest friends in the world and. Everyone on that sat was family and if they weren't, they were really gracious and very happy to be there. So it was extremely sweet environment to step back into but Yeah, it was fun. But I I guess I needed the twenty five year break I I took it.

National Casa G. A. L. and help some of our nation's most vulnerable children at maximum fund dot org slash C A s that's maximum fund dot Org Slash Casa. And seriously. Thank you our community rules. Welcome back to bulls eye. I'm Jesse Thorn. My guest is Rob Hubel. He's an actor who performed on transparent and human giant on the League and more. He's The star of the new show. Medical police a spin off of the hit adult adult swim. Show Children's hospital. It's a spoof about doctors who carry guns and travel the world fighting disease and crime. It's streaming now on Netflix. You became a father a few years ago. Yeah and your daughter was born Very prematurely yes. What were the circumstances? ooh Jesse we took a hard turn buddy and we were talking full full on comedy. I now know I can do this. I've talked about this before. The good news is is. My daughter is super healthy and she's a maniac but she's super healthy it. She's three and she's like is tall and strong in lean and she's driving us crazy right now but yes. She was born at twenty ninety six weeks. And so you know a full term baby is I believe forty weeks and So this baby came however many weeks that is early you know and so became became fort fourteen weeks early. She was under two pounds when she was born and she was just a tiny town. I mean she was you. You know a basically a baby bird you know like just the smallest little thing and We don't know exactly why it happened. I mean they tried to kind of go. Go back and figure it out later. But there's not that much that they can tell all the time and so my wife basically just started having contractions. We were like furniture shopping over. We're luckily we were near the hospital. And and all of a sudden my wife was like Something's wrong and like I was like what's wrong. And she's like I think we when you've got the hospital and so we just sped over the hospital and they took her up initially they. We thought like Oh okay they can just slow down. These contractions and everything that you don't know what's happening and it's the most terrifying thing because you don't have any clue you know. So we thought well they'll keep her for a few days as and they'll slow down. These contractions whatever so that turned into a week which turned into ten days and then finally they just couldn't slow down the contractions anymore and so it became the sort of thing. We think. You're going to have the baby tomorrow and we're like wait. What like what are you even talking about? You know a baby born at twenty six weeks. That's pretty it close to like the cutoff point of viability of whatever that is survivability so this baby came three months early and then we stayed in the nick you Over there for a hundred and seventeen days. Now I've Kinda like put it in a box in my mind so I don't really open that box that much unless I'm on a podcast like I know you know we we at the time we were so freaked out by it. The kind of all we could do. I didn't know anyone else that had gone through that experience and So at the time all we would do is look through instagram for hashtags. That matched touched our daughter. So We'd like search twenty six weaker or preemies or Hashtag. Nick you or anything like that. And we'd find someone that was in the same situation that we were and then and we would just like scroll through their instagram and looked to see how it panned out for them and so sometimes it worked out. Sometimes they had you know Oh really complicated situations you know so. We just didn't know what was going to happen. And ours was like two steps forward one step back but you know we finally got her home after one hundred seventeen days and she was on oxygen for like six months at home. But you know now. She's doing great. I always try to be as public about it as I can Dan because when It's like anything like whatever you're going through someone else has already gone through it and someone else is coming up behind behind you so You know when people reach out to me on like instagram or twitter. Whatever I try to be as is open about it as I can Dan because it was so scary for us and all you all you are looking for is like someone to tell you that things are going to be okay? A family member of mine had two very premature children that the first around the time in her pregnancy. That your your wife had your baby and Because she my my family member was pre ECLAMPSIA and in fact nearly died in the process of of having the baby. And the baby's are the kids are doing great now. Yeah and then you know with the second child because of her Pre ECLAMPSIA and the first they they had the baby on purpose early to keep my family members safe and one of the milestones that I remember from those was girls growing up in their both. Like Preschool Age. Now was the point at which there was no longer her two ages being capped. Yeah an age from the day they were born and an age from the day that there they were scheduled to be born. Yeah Yeah it's real like My daughter was supposed to be born on December. The Twenty eight th. But she was born on September the twenty eight and so they're you know that adjustment that adjusted age you have to factor that in for the first like few years because people are dealing with them as though they are one age but they're they're really this other age you know and then eventually that line becomes blurry and blurry thankfully and And then it just kind of melts away and then you're like. Oh they're now they're just this age but yeah that is something I remember so vividly of just like having to explain that to everybody. You know while she's this age but she's actually this issue now now just to doctors and therapists and stuff like that that you're dealing with but Yeah I mean the human body is bananas. That's an understatement. But like it's just crazy to wash like I picked. I picked her up from preschool. Today she ran over me and she's like laughing and talking talking about some bug that they were all laughing outside or something stupid bugs and And it's just like it's just weird. Sometimes I just look at it and I'm like because I know has she started and it's just it it blows my mind into like into oblivion to think about it like that you can go from something that is so tiny and fragile and like just barely hanging onto life to just like keep going keep going keep going like and then you just keep going and going and then you become this full on person with like opinions unions. And now she's like making jokes about stuff you know and like cracking us up like when she goes to bed at night. My wife and I are like so tired and like poor giant glass of wine. Sit on the couch but like my wife will say like all the time my wife will say like. It's weird appeared that she's hours like it's so weird. I think sometimes when I see a picture of my family members kids you know on facebook. We live in a different coast than I do. So I don't get to see them in person that much but I think Lasik if something that that my family member told me is you. You know if this kid had been born when I was born is born in Nineteen ninety-one it's not like I was born a thousand years Jayco but if this kid had been born the year that I was born I wouldn't get to look at a yeah healthy healthy for your old. Yeah the obviously I mean. Medicine is just You know expanding in doing all of this awesome awesome things like at such an exponential rate but like. Yeah we had I remember. I remember when we brought our daughter home. We were having we're done on our house and The contractor.

"Have the same sort of reaction, especially draft picks one through ten but really all of them. They'd get this dreamed of getting their name called, you know, and they're ready to run into a brick wall. You know, they're almost programmed in that way based off of the nature of the sport. And what what you think is promised for you that rainbow which is the NFL in what I mean. And once you get there, it totally changes, the whole perspective changes. And and and unfortunately, NFL release downs for not for long, and there's not a, you know, you get a sort of a crash course in how to be a professional, but. It's not really instituted early on in these young men's life and more often than not they learned the hard way. I think there's a documentary that's called a broke. And you know, it's, you know, was the average life expectancy is three years after you know, after three years, they become, you know, bankrupt. So it it it is an interesting NFL. Specifically is such an interesting case studies for these young men in this country, and how they have to sort of turn it off, you know, after they're done playing and the learning curve, you know, is is is narrow I read this book where a reporter went behind the scenes with the jets for a year, and one of the things that I don't think I had thought about was the way that relative to other major American sports and major American professional sports. Because football happens once a week like the experience of playing it is dramatically different like baseball, and to a lesser extent basketball are defined by their grind, you know. Like, you have to show up every day and go, and you go, do you think, and you have your hurt, you know, if you're a pitcher your arm, always, you know, that kind of thing and in football because all of that week's worth of playing is distilled into one three and a half hours. He described the people basically like whole lives drove towards this unnatural high that they had to get to in order to make their bodies. Do the things that they had to do that was this physical hurting war that went on for a few hours once a week. And then they went home. Home and they got like a day off. And then it was back to building up to that again. Yeah. And they say also, especially when when young man start to get paid for the foot to do that the best ability is availability. So you talking about the grind of NBA season. Eighty two games in the in the the grind of of baseball season hockey to to a certain extent. I, you know, it's you you get another one the next day or the day after you know, Sundays, you gotta wait a whole other week. But that being said you can't. And that's why I say not for long, you know, a lot of money contracts are are are incentive based on a veil ability. If you can get a certain amount of yards if you play a certain if you participate in a certain amount of plays. I found out that you get a bonus, you know, so so being available or being able to work through injuries because there's a difference between you know, being hurt and being injured those that sort of. Gets rewarded unfortunately on the back in when it's over the hasn't been much. I mean they've worked on compensation, you know, after football. But it's still a discussion topic of discussion. Then I mean football contracts are generally not guaranteed so signing bonus s that's what you play for basically. That's the only thing guaranteed upfront money, but they can they can terminate your contract in anytime, and you split ways if you get offered one hundred million dollars for four years, but you get you know, thirty of it up front the second year, they can cut ties, and you don't get the rest of your money. It's eye. Jesse thorn, my guest this week is John David Washington. He's in the Spike Lee movie black klansman, which is out now when you additional and for ballers, you were still in a boot from the injury that ended your football career. Was it just a well? What's the worst that could happen situation?.

"It's bowls eye. I'm Jesse thorn. I'm here with Carol Kane. She's a legendary character actress she's on the TV show unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which is now in its final season on that lex. I mean, I think it's amazing to me that you as someone who's worked with an actress for nearly fifty years I and a lot of actors. Part of what they develop in their lives is a kind of defense against failure. Because they never get the part. And you got the reverse like you you were blindly. You were blindly falling into beautiful and spectacular art at the beginning of your career and didn't have to worry about it. And when the reality of failures started to hit you it weighed upon you more and more is your career went on rather than the reverse. My mother always saying to me Honey, you just got to try and develop a oh thick skin. You know? And I just never was able to do that. I just. I guess the best example of that is that a few years ago, I was on Broadway and wicked and during that time, I was asked to addition for Pippin on Broadway to replace the genius. Andrea Martin and for various crazy reasons. The audition process went on for about a year because I'd be scheduled. But then the director would be directing something else out of town. And they and they were trying to get everybody in the same room at the same time, and that kept not happening for all kinds of reasons. And I kept hiring a vocal coach every time over a period of a year because I'm not a natural singer. Even though I was fortunate enough to do wicked. But I'm the Rex Harrison kind of talk for them. And I would study in study. And then it didn't work out the sentencing finally got to addition and. I thought it had gone rather. Well, because the everybody in the theatre stood up an applauded after my addition, and then I didn't get it. And I was so devastated, you know, I was just crawling around the floor weeping, and then I thought to myself you can't do this anymore. I realized that I couldn't take it that I was too old to put myself through that anymore, and I stopped and as soon as I stopped the miracle happened that I got called to. Robert, Jeff, Richman, the commission people, and I was also offered to play the role of the penguins mother on Gotham both of those things happen right after I said, I can't do it anymore the auditioning. So I don't know that's just America. But it's true. I wanna play a clip of you in hundred seventy five my guess is Carol Kane and this is from dog day afternoon, which was directed by Sidney lumet and your character's name is Jenny. And the the film is about a group of people being held hostage at a Bank and sunny who's played by Pacino is is one of the Bank robbers who was holding them hostage. And in this tank is Allie exactly and he calls. He calls you into the room to tell you that your husband's on the phone wall. So here that in the middle of the conversation, sunny gets a phone call from the chief of police will hear sunny, I. They were Jenny. Who's jenny? It's me. Squad. You've got a husband. Go ahead. Could I tell him? I don't know would comment on. Comedy w when he w plays all the hits. First off is anybody hurt? Are you keep away from this Bank of we're going to start pulling bodies out the front door one at a time? You got that? Listen, don't do that. Now. Wait a minute. Let me talk you for a while.

"And thanks, I'm Jesse thorn. It's bullseye. Jez Butterworth's laid his planes on broadly right now, it's his seven called the Ferryman it set during the troubles the decades-long conflict over Northern Ireland that killed thousands. It tells the story of the Carney family who lived there in dairy. Authorities have just found the body of shameless Garnett who's been missing for almost a decade. We find out early on that shameless was killed by the IRA in the family is now left to deal with the fallout of that event. The plays unique in a lot of ways at one point. There are twenty one actors on stage at the same time. One of them is an infant you'll also see a live goose and a live rabbit. And I mean, I it's remarkable it's visceral unusual theatrical experience behind all that though the story shines through it's about trauma, and loss and revenge and all of the other consequences people encounter when they try to live their lives during conflict jazz is a veteran writer. If both stage and screen he's written about a dozen films along with his plays. And you see that here a younger playwright might have the same grand vision as Butterworth did for the production. But would they have the finesse and thoughtfulness to make it work? It's hard to say. Anyway, let's take a listen to apart from the beginning of the play this takes place in an alleyway. We see a man name Muldoon who's a member of the IRA interrogating, a priest about the discovery of shame is his corpse. Do you know who I know? I'm going to ask you some questions. I wanted to just want you to answer. How you feel is best. Okay. Okay. Good. Do you know who I am? Yes. Jim said a brother an older brother his name now. His name is Quentin Carney. What can you? Tell me about him is a farmer farms fifty acres in the powder. She has a white from the family. He's a good mom was the always of farmer. With respect, sir. What are we playing here? Sure, everyone news Quinn. Carney is most of all you. Your priest. Yes, he confesses to you. You hear his confession? Yes. Why don't you tell me everything, you know? Oh, by Quin Carney. Just better with welcome to bullseye. It's nice to have you on the show. Thank you. So I imagine this must have been a subject matter that you took up with trepidation as an English guy. Yes. I think you'd be right about that. Yeah. It was know I did everything I could not do. I it really ideas. Replace doesn't come along often enough for me to completely ignore them. But with this one I did my best is just struck me as something of a of foods errand. I don't think rights as should or any autists for that matter issued ring fence their imaginations, will you wouldn't have this much. You know, you wouldn't have signed much, but it's still struck me as as a bad idea. What were the things that you needed to be careful about not to overstated four hundred years of of rolling discontent slash wall between the two countries and not took certain hob because I really enjoyed a movie called Hunga, which a British show. Make Steve McQueen made. It was fantastic NFL is it fell fantastic. And I was at the end of the day. I do kind of have us of a a screw it mentality. Whereas like, well, if this story I thought it was a good one foot. It was that it could work. And so it was his chance. I was I was willing to take and to be honest with you throughout the entire several different runs of the show by sides. Of the Atlantic. There's been precious little reaction to the fact that I'm English or are you surprised by that? Yeah..

I just it's I guess the forties and the fifties have always been really good. Your those good decades for me in terms of playing characters and especially today because I think we all need as viewers, and as certainly factors a respite from present day craziness. And what this the other thing that this affords us is this, you know, there are no cellphones in this show there. No computers. I mean, the computers are the size of this room. You know, there's no.

It is so hard to make show like this. That is pleasant to so many people that also is sharpened specific and so on and so forth. You know what I mean?

"It's bowls. I I'm Jesse thorn. I'm here with bridie Elliott and her dad comedian, Chris Elliott bridie wrote and directed the new movie Clara's ghost, which is available to rent and buy online. Now, it is a weird scary. And sometimes deeply deeply funny movie. Starring the entire Elliott family. Chris bridie, Abby and Paula. Is it weird to have a dad who's has this show business career that is? Entirely meaningless to most. Like profoundly meaningful to some. You never know if somebody figures out your dad is Chris Elliott, you never know whether they're you're they're going to like make you list his credits until you get to, you know, everybody loves Raymond. They'll be like. I like that anti candler fan. But. And then or if they're going to be like, oh my God. Lou new license plate. I'm Jimmy Kimble. Yeah. Yeah. I've gone on some dates where it's like a little. Will you marry me to Moro hang and it's gross. But. No, I think it actually has you know, made me. Possibly more cynical about the whole thing. The whole idea of what successes and what it means. And but also more realistic. And I do think, you know, I did not go into this business with stars in my eyes or any sort of expectation of, you know, well, I come from success. I'm going to have to you know, be successful right away. I think I think for me, it's it's been more like, oh, it's all on a luge in and unpredictable and weird. And that's made it in more recent years, you know, more freeing, I think I think I definitely when I said that I was like, oh, that's a lie. Totally expected. I totally expected to be successful right away. Because it happened for, you know, Abby, very fast and. And then, you know, it was sort of I kind of had to shed that to you know, then take baby steps. But, but yeah, I think I think once when you were on eagle heart, and like, you know, the people that were watching it were obsessed, and then the people that hadn't heard of it. You know, had no idea what it was like, I think that was indicative to me of like, okay? Like, it's really all you know, the world is a different place than you know, I yeah. I mean, there's so many. I dunno opportunities venues places to go. You know, it's it's hard to define what is success, you know, right now. And I you know, I've never felt like my career. I I've been very lucky and really happy that I've been able especially thanks to Dave was able to have a house early on and raise a family and and have a regular income. And all that you're like twenty five win abbey was born or now you're twenty five when you got married they were just young when you guys settled down. Yeah. We we were. And I was talking to mom about it was like we were kind of playing house because we we were kids who could, you know, living in we bought a house, and we were living in an Abraham with older people, you know, and having cocktails and a bar in our house. It was like we were just pretending. You know for longtime. It's sort of felt like that. And that's how we got into it. But I don't the idea of success there. You can do something nowadays and work for twenty years. And or you know, fifteen and people don't know what you're doing. But you're buying house..
