Rivers was still known as Joan Molinski. I had a friend than and Joan was looking for a partner and he and my boyfriend was looking for a partner so they found each other and it is Alinsky and Myers and so John and I started hanging out and like clung to each other like Oh my God this outside world but she was so smart. She was a better engine graduate and she had done it. This is on James. Joyce's you Erie. Smart she was mark and she was funny and she was in the Business Jonas to such a great combination women fringes of fringes thereof but trivia.

Her stuff was so head and shoulders and above anybody's truly above anybody's working that she was always picked. I from the group. She was always noticed. I at this at this point John.

They've just kind of sit out like this is our fate. We have to kind of you know. Sit here and watch whatever is happening on the stage with these people one of the reasons they book because they had a car because with her having the car that meant that the agent could always say Joan could you bring so and so up because they don't have a car and the exotic dancer with the snake? The snake search your mind. Sure no problem the stakes in the back and so so she was the big. Wow Joan Molinski. Hyphen rivers has a car. So the car as a car So he doesn't have a car with dog acts and walking off but she hit early and she did something very brave. You were the first to go out to California. The Whole Group Has Joan and I were were both constantly fighting the idea that that a woman a woman is writing comedy and and Joan was was fighting that she doesn't do these old kind of stick of editor but she was doing more character stuff and do do the thing that I love. So much about your wig running his tell you that she wrote a joke for me that I still use to this day If God wanted me to cook my hands would be aluminum and toads me on the telephone. I remember calling her up and I said our guy wanted cook. My hands would be what the hands of course. Of course I still use streams joke at its truest joke.

I found that as a as a writer was very interesting because it was it was it was hard to write It was hard to write lead characters and make them really really funny in the thirties. They did it. But in the fifties and sixties it was always the kind of fat one who was the funding one. Or The you know with a funny accent was the funding. So here's Joan is dressed for for fraternity dance in her. Lovely black little sleeveless thing and with the pearls and showing a fund in the BOA Showbiz had a Bo tree.

Joan Rivers: Can We Talk?

"Joan rivers career spanned nearly six decades she started with cabaret and off Broadway shows in the late fifties and then became a star of late night television hosting the tonight show and the late show with Joan rivers and eventually the daytime Joan rivers show in the nineties. She was best known for her comedic and sometimes mean-spirited interviews with celebrities on the Red Carpet John. Style was self deprecating abrasive. Everyone was fair game including herself. She charted new territory and comedy by telling stories from her own life combined with her willingness to talk about taboo subjects like hot flashes sagging bodies bad sex and marriage problems. You may have noticed that we borrowed our podcast. Name can talk from this hilarious. Talented and complex Jewish woman. Can we talk? Was Jones signature. Tagline sometime. She's it as a punchline. Sometimes it was a setup. It was an invitation to her audience. A signal that she was about to confide in them. Here's Joan on the show in the early. Nineteen Eighty S. I would not cheat. I would not cheek Maine because nobody asked me but I not because I think why we talk. I think my husband's spooner man okay. Which is very hard to save. I feel very close to you. I especially if you can. We talk was also Jones way of calling attention to her flaws and other people's her way of saying let's stop pretending and tell the truth here. Can we talk? Let me tell you something. The reason I have nothing happy the way I'm blessed is because I'm getting older at least seven very drop because Oh oh you don't know what it's like to get older too. You know what it's like to go in the morning to take facial mask and realize you're not wearing what so. Why did we borrow her? Tigon FOR OUR PODCAST. When we started the show Joan had recently died and we were all steeped in the debate about her role and her complicated legacy as brilliant and hilarious. But also crass and sometimes cruel. We love that. She had so many dimensions and that she believed in telling the truth about women's lives and expanding the range of models. We see all things we knew we wanted to do to. We also liked that. Can we talk was an invitation to our audience to join us in this project of storytelling and with that. Here's a wonderful interview from J W as archive recorded in two thousand six for our documentary. Jewish women in comedy making trouble. Joan talks about her early days at the Chicago. Comedy Clubs Second City being a woman on Johnny Carson's tonight show and playing midwestern clubs as New York Jewish comic later in the interview. She talks about going back to work after her husband's suicide in nineteen eighty seven. She starts by telling Interviewer Rachel. Talbot about a fight. She had with her parents over her decision to go into comedy. I left my house in pedal pushes enter old car that I used to drive and went to New York in speaking of the year and it was just awful and my dad wrote me a letter say that we are going to You'd better come home or we're going to have you committed. I was living in the bars on hotel for women and my dad wanted says and pulled me out. It was a scene. I think they ever forgot dragged me out. It was just horrible scene Harles. They just thought I was really life as though question about it. They just couldn't accept that. This is where I was going to end. This is all I could do so the I went back home and then I went away. Yeah it was just awful and then Pity yes that was great. Second City was very competitive. It was six of US thrown on stage. And it was make up your own lines and get your own scenes going and everybody wanted to be the star second city and everybody wants to get their stuff and so it wasn't like being gracious. It was like I got a better idea I wanted. It was very competitive and that was great too. I learnt in second city. You have to talk up and I learnt the freedom of you. Think it's funny try it. Don't wait don't think about it. I still do that if freed me. It taught me to be tough. It taught me to fight. If you thought you're Si was good you went into four four and a taught me co with your instinct. Only do what you truly think is going to be funny. It changed my life and then you you came back to New York Nissan. You learn so much from second cities are how had your comic persona change came. When I came back with second city I was myself onstage. Good bed or different. I was what I was and I was a divorced when no Jewish smart college graduate not particularly attractive girl on stage and I was telling you about my life. It wasn't about my mother-in-law was about what I'm going through my mother's hysterical because I'm single and I'm having an affair with a married man and my gay friends. What happen to my gay friends and it was all about truth. The first routine that really worked. I had a WIG hairpieces. I was driving into New York to perform at this club. And the WIG flew out of the window and a car drove over it and I said there I was walking on the west side highway. With a dead Wigan my arms had says firestone on and no one stops and all the truth and taking the truth and exaggerated and it just opened me up. I never went back. I never went back to. He's so fat that unless I really believe when did you find out Johnny Carson? Nothing in my career. I think that's why I was that you log come easily ever. I've never been the first on anything all my friends. And that time I was working the village with my George Carlin and Richard. Pryor all these wonderful men everybody got through everybody was on Carson and on Griffin and I was brought up seven different times to the Carson show. I was finally rejected by Secretary. Who is eating lunch while I was performing? I mean beyond humiliating. I got on because the night before some comic bom so they called me up and they said you can come on but not as a comedian. They had no faith in me. They brought me on as a girl writer and at the end of the show at the end of that night on air. Johnny Carson said to me you're going to be a star it was maisy and I look behind me. I couldn't believe and the next day. My life change changed overnight. They were getting all these calls and stuff. Was there ever a feeling of like? Oh you're to New York reports. I was doing costume regularly. I don't think it was hosting really I was you know the Golden Girl Carson and the ages come back and say you to New York to Jewish you to New York and my husband was married by that point. Ed You said this is ridiculous. He said picked the worst city in the country. And they said Milwaukee they still have been meetings. This is nine hundred seventy. There's still enclaves. They dress up Nazi uniforms and saw Adolf stand. He said center Milwaukee. And let's see and they sent me to Milwaukee and I was. They had to change the size of the room and put in the ballroom. Our I put originally in a little hotel the pfister in their little comedy room and they had to over the ball and put me in so that changed everything they said. Okay America will get her. I mean people begin to put little pockets and it's so stupid because funny is funny. You're minutes was using back on state. What was that decision? The decision was very simple. One I know money I had to go back to work. I didn't have the luxury of being the widow in the house on the hill so I had to go back to and nobody wanted me and Vegas gave me back my contracts. 'cause isn't nobody wants to see anybody that has that kind of you would just fired. would terrible glistening one out that. I was very hard to work with It was just all wrong all wrong. I was banned from late night. I've never been brought back ever not one late night show So I was really struggling my career and I had all these bills. Listen was in. It was just a bad time so I went back to little nightclubs. I said well I'll start again. I went back and started doing little like us and out of that came the red carpet

"Brought it was a woman brought her backstage. I said first of all. She's fine fine and she's thinner and I probably so just lost four pounds so jealous and then we just went on. But it's you never know what's going to have a live show now. The film explores among other things. Your relationship with your daughter Melissa when she was young. And you were establishing yourself in show business. Did you have a conflict between career and motherhood which so many women go through now. Trying to balance wants the two but not that many women were going through it. When you were Chris? Many more women were full-time mothers and homemakers. Then I did something from the very beginning because I've been sitting when I was pregnant with a very famous comedian and a little girl who was in the park mark and a little girl fell down and cut her knee and ran to the nanny. And I said right then and then my child will run to me and I from the beginning. We stopped everything at six o'clock We always had a family. Didn't even we went out afterwards. It had another dinner with friends. Everything stopped at six. I was Brownie scout mother in those uniform. You don't know what I sacrificed uh-huh my daughter. I mean Terry please Jewish woman in a khaki dress not not no I think I was as good a working mother as you can possibly be. I was also lucky. I was in a position where I could take my daughter. Go to work when I was on Broadway. Melissa sat in addressing which he talks about and she would color and crown in the dressing room and she talks about that no such fond memories. She talks about growing up backstage in Vegas where sitting on a stool. We sat on a stool right off stage and wish you could watch me in every night. Jews allowed to re write one joke that I would say on the stage no matter how terrible the joke or and so she was always included included totally include as much as I could but I also had to make a living in the movie. I think it's you who said I'm tournament whether you say it or somebody says I think you say that you are perceived as an advocate for plastic surgery than the poster girl and then the joke. Yeah when did it cross over into joke Probably my first banned plastic surgery Probably I when I talked about it too much. I should have been like everybody else and not said a word and And Deny it. So why did you do. I talked about the very beginning but I'm a a comedian. So of course you walk on stage and say I just had my is down and let me tell you Dr Blah Blah Blah Blah and you start doing jokes and it was in those days shock to talk about it like everything else. Things have evolved and that was a very shocking thing to discuss. And then it became mm-hmm 'cause I dragged read. Some people thought that's all I did. I was very glad I talked about it. It goes back to what we started out talking about. Which is by talk talk about it? Maybe there's some woman somewhere North Dakota who hates her nose and she's shy get it fixed off friends align during saying don't do it betty and I'm saying betty to it going to feel better about yourself.

"React to our interviews on twitter twitter in real time as you're listening like when you tell us that you can't get out of your car because of an interview. That's my favorite kind of interview is when we feature a topic topic or a guest. I know nothing about or I think I'm interested in. And then it's a total surprise like the interviews. We did this year with a cave diver or or an Episcopal priest or the author a book about the Secret Mind Control Experiments and those tend to be the interviews that we hear about the most from our listeners. I also see on social media. How many of you appreciate our news coverage we live in such an overwhelming and new saturated time and we work really hard to find the best journalists us to unpack complicated issues? And of course I'd be remiss to not mention the big name interviews like Howard. Stern Reese Witherspoon Eliza and even when those guests go on the late night. Talk shows or other podcasts. You know that the fresh air interview is going to be different. Because it's Teri. She's a legend. So the best way you can keep these shows coming and to tell us that you like what we do is to give to your local. NPR Station go to donate dot NPR dot org slash Josh fresh air that's Doni Dot.

He used to sound like this. My voice I tie. This is Howard stern and I was like I don't sound like a guy on the radio radio and we'll hear my twenty ten interview with the late Joan rivers. She felt her comedy got better as she got older. What are you gonNA? Do you GonNa find me pin five. It could be bankrupt. been bankrupt banned from networks happened. So I can say anything I want and it has re totally to very entertaining interviews on this final day of the decade coming up on fresh air on this final day of the decade were continuing our series featuring some favorite interviews of the decade as selected by our staff. We start today with an interview from this year. Howard Stern I spoke with him last May after the publication of his book? Luke Howard. Stern comes again collecting some of his favourite interviews. He has become a really good interviewer at the age of sixty five. He says he's changed over the years and has moved away from some of the crude sex talk and sexism of his earlier years and has been emphasizing empathy over outrageousness in his interviews but he admits his shows still contains a fair amount of what he calls second-grade humor. He show became nationally syndicated in nineteen eighty six and moved to Sirius Satellite Radio in two thousand thousand six. Here's our interview Howard. Stern welcome to fresh air. I am so excited this is happening. You know like some of our listeners. I think just a few but some of our listeners. They're outrage that Howard. Stern is going to be on our show and some of your listeners. Probably think public radio so incredibly boring. Why are you wasting your time on public radio? No no I actually got a really great reaction when I when I said on my show that I'm coming on the Terry Gross show. Everyone was like Oh. She's the best interviewer in the world to hear you two guys together. It's GonNa be Awesome Blah Blah Blah. And I was like. Oh this is great so no no I. I don't know about your listeners. But certainly mind we seem to be pretty jacked up about it. A lot of our listeners are too I just know some of them are like what but those are. I tell you one thing this morning woke up and I said to and my wife I'm going onto terry gross show. I'M GONNA I'M GONNA go learn about her. And the first thing I learned was that you had written a book. Yes and so yeah. So I went on my kindle account you know and here you have written a book on interviewing which is why. I'm here talking to you and I went. Oh Wow I should've read read this. So I on my kindle you get a little Chapter for free you know so I began reading it and the first thing like literally that you wrote is Hey when when I was writing a book about interviews. I didn't know if they'd be good to read. Because you know people have heard them on the radio and that was my whole dilemma. That's why I almost didn't write the book. It was as if if you were talking to me and then I read a little further along and you said something about when you interview people that you cut them off quickly. If they're boring warringah going on too long and then I got filled with dread. Because I don't know that I'm a really good interview to be honest and I go on for bose so I said. Oh she's GonNa be cutting me off every the minute and when she puts me off my ego is going to be destroyed because I think I'm pretty good broadcast but I don't know if I'm a farmer good interview so because I was thinking like Howard GonNa give have long answers and I thought no I mean Howard knows what good radio is. So he's not going to go on too long. He knows exactly what timing is. So listen I'm in a studio in Philadelphia. You're in a studio in New York. I didn't know if you admitted that or not so I didn't bring it up. Oh Yeah Yeah Yeah. I usually don't get to see my guess because they're not in Philly so we just connect via high-tech stuff but I was shocked acting your book. The part I read today. You said you liked that. And I would dread that that would be the worst thing in the world not to look someone in the eye while I'm interviewing interviewing them. I don't think I you know I'm not comfortable with that. I'm surprised to hear that. Because let me describe your set a little bit or maybe ask you to describe it. I mean you're in a desk that it almost looks like a barricade. Turn this big s that has like big Half Oval Rim around. That really looks like your barricaded barricaded in and then your guest is like a bunch of feet away from you on a couch and it's a pretty big distance like it's not a distance you typically glee set from someone. You'd sit much closer if you were having a conversation. That wasn't on the radio. You just talking to each other in a room. Why do you have the barricade in the distance from your? Wow that is really interesting that you say that and I hadn't really considered it. Part of it is that I work my own equipment and I say this in my book that if anyone is serious about radio that I think they should work their own equipment. They should learn how to run a board as we say in radio and I for me. I'm such maybe it's the control freak in me but I I liked control every microphone the volume the sound effects going on whatever it might be so all of that equipment in front of me in that. Big Barricade has a lot to do with the the physical equipment. I'm running the show so anyways a question for you. You're interviewing approach has changed over the years. It's you go deeper you. You have more empathy. And you've said when you think of the interviews you did during the first couple of decades on your show that you cringe you say I was an absolute maniac. My narcissism was so strong. I was incapable of appreciating what somebody else might be feeling in your introduction to your interview with Gwyneth Paltrow in your book you write that. On terrestrial radio might interviewing technique was like bashing someone in the face with a sledgehammer. I treated my guess as props all I wanted was to cause chaos. And you've said that you know therapy was a turning point for you. You start a therapy. What twenty years ago Is it too personal to ask you. What the therapy approach is is that you know not personal I'm happy to talk about it and I hope something comes out of this book. That people aren't afraid of therapy. I think it is the most useful tool world and I talked to people who are really uptight about it and I understand that it took me five years before I called this guy that I go to see and it psycho analysis. It's I WANNA say it's more Freudian but I you know I don't get that sense. I don't lay on a couch. Although he suggested that I do but I was not not comfortable with it. I couldn't I couldn't get used to it. Even the thought of laying down on a couch and not being able to look at a person speaking about we spoke about. I need to look person in the I and I think it's my own insecurity I I'm afraid they'd fall asleep on me or they weren't really paying attention. I really I have a lot of issues. I didn't go there. Air Thinking that it would affect my radio show so much. I went there because you know I wanted to examine my relationships How I related related to the world and the people around me and I felt that I was in a bit of a crisis having gone through a divorce and with all of that going on and and I have three young children so I I? I really wanted to be the best father I could be. I had a lot of lofty ambitions. So how does it work well. What was so profound on for me and why I signed on I sat there with the psychoanalyst? The psychiatrist and I said I guess I'll tell you about myself. Spend I started to go into a fabulous routine that I'd done many times on the radio. I would start talking about my parents and with complete with impressions I was like I Listen my son. This is my mother talking. My son was raised to please me and then he knew how to behave. And I taught my son how to respect people and I. I told him angering to dress like he was meeting the governor. And I'm going into these routines and then I bring my father into it. I told you you you. You'll burst stupid. You're going to make a million dollars on the radio you don't even you don't even know how to speak properly. You don't even know how to speak properly. Why are you Tony Yelling at each other so I would start to do this routine? And I'm going into this elaborate thing and he stops me. He stopped me. Cold looks at me and he says I don't find any of this funny now. I was like hey what the hell is he talking about. What do you mean is that funny? I get paid a lot of money to do this stuff he goes. I find it rather said and why are you telling thing me stories. Why you're not talking about anything real? I no clue what he was talking about. I had never sat alone in a room with any human being on this planet and been listen to in a real way everything with me with stick and funny and that's how my family related we didn't Sit and ask about feelings. This took me years to get used to. It wasn't like all of a sudden. I had an epiphany I was freaking out. It was like man. This guy wants me to talk. What does he mean He? He doesn't want me to be funny. I'm funny you know. As I was going through therapy I was also making a transition from terrestrial radio. Commercial Radio to satellite radio on satellite. They were giving me the time to do whatever I want. And Terry I mean whatever I want I had no government restrictions and I could be as dirty as I wanted to be. I could be as outrageous as I wanted to be and I realized rather quickly. That's so boring on satellite radio. You have to rail against someone. All of the outrageousness that I was about was because the government hated it. Religious groups hated it and now suddenly. I'm in the wild west. I can talk talk about anything I want. It's paid subscription radio so with that I started to not only get turned on by how I was being heard in that psychiatrist's office but I began to contemplate wait. What would really be interesting? Now that I have this format how about bringing in a guest here and there and really having a real conversation and what that meant for me and and this was mind blowing to me not to you but to me what if I could let the other person shine what if I could shut my big gap and not make it about me. Was it hard for you to not make it about you. Oh my God.

But who knows it could be anybody who started this town so small that the city limits signs are both in the same. Stick. Herp Schreiner the Joan rivers that you actually like the Joan rivers so small joke about about the mirror at the end of the marriage. Herb Shriner's said our town is so small. That one day. They. On voting day. They closed all the bars. Lockton all the voters. I know about one hundred so. How small one room so small you put your key into door, Brooke? Yes. Yes. I tried so small the mice were hunchbacked. That's right. That's That's right. right. They went out to eat. I made up one once which is talking about luxurious hotel room, a sweet, and they sit on a clear day. You can see the dresser. That's like that's like a rhythm. Joe? I mean, I think that just funny because it's such a perfect. It's such a perfect rhythm. So so when you when you made the films you did with Christopher guest waiting for guffman a mighty wind, which I just love for your consideration. How they set up those scenes so that you're the script was maybe seven or eight pages just describing Senate scenes, there was never any dialogue written. He might sometimes give you say something to before the scene, but it was truly improvised. But of course, you have Fred Willard Catholic heroine inching Levy that geniuses. Yeah. What was so mazing about guffman? He had these wonderful actors portraying really bad actors. And I remember the Katherine hair readings right away sounded like an amateur theatrical person, she said, California would be site for these weary. She's she's really the Queen of comedy. Oh, well, she still has on shits creek. He's just adore one. Andrea martin. Yes. Yes. Yes. And the the late Madeline Kahn some of those people and even Clarice, right? Now, improv of a different sort would maybe be the way to describe Robert Altman's working methods. Bobby never used ultimate ever use the word improvisation. He just everybody knew he was open to ideas. And he loved to be surprised, and I once had to replace him in a place where he big given an award. He didn't wanna go. They sent me. And I said he's a painter also Bob as doesn't paint often, but hit can't paint, and he he'd sometimes use driftwood and see shells found objects. I told an audience that I was I understand this because I was one of his found objects. Accidents. And he would see something that just happened around the set and put it in. I very quickly earned how to improvise for him and much of his actors didn't know how to improvise in the sense that they hadn't really been in a company or trained with a lot of experience sometimes people. Improvising. They just think you make something up that they're not adding to the whole then adding to the scene. But. It's mattress is how do we improvise? They just do the lines. If you think of something as you go along throw it in, but it won't matter. But here's a trick. I use for myself when they say action I start talking. So before the first line comes up. I start talking about the general subject, then I do what's written. And then if he doesn't say cut, I just keep improvising. At the end, I know it can chop off either end change, the idea, whatever might be written. But he was very open to suggestions. Just very quickly. I knew his reputation, and I knew that I'd come from improv in my first line in a wedding. My first movie with him as I do. Which means I'm the father who gives us women to this, man. And I said, I do my character's name is snuck Brenner, and for some reason. My first line in the movie, I'm simp- revising and something already set in always who gives us wound to this.

Will Cosmetic Surgery Make Me Happier?

"And finally conclusion number four cosmetic surgery may not make me happier. But it will take away one of my problems. Okay. This follows the Jay Z ninety nine problems philosophy after the surgery, you'll still have problems but hating your Muffin top won't be one. Now, the stereotype of people who get pas medic surgery is that of shallow insecure types who are obsessed with their looks their thought to be off the charts on something called body image investment, which is defining yourself and your self worth by your physical appearance. And how far you'll go to uphold it interestingly in an exploratory analysis in the same clinical, psychological, science study body image investment, decreased in those that had surgery indicating that once they're protruding ears or sagging neck was a non issue. They became less preoccupied with or invested in their looks. And when you think about it, this makes sense once. A need is met. It's not a need anymore. It's the same reason why people who are naturally slim don't often think about their weight or men with a full head of hair don't think about their hairline. And if you don't spend time thinking about it or comparing yourself to others, you might conclude mistakenly or not that it's not important to you. So to wrap this all up will cause medic surgery. Make you happier. The answer is maybe most people are satisfied with the outcome of their surgery, but satisfaction with the procedure and overall happiness are completely different things. Cosmetic surgery will likely make you more satisfied with your tummy or your eyelids. But may or may not extend beyond that to whatever else. You don't like about your life, all in all don't rely on cosmetic surgery to make your life better improve your relationships or make you happy after all even Joan rivers eventually had enough of plastic, sir.

"Stadium trump has a few hate you are these joe i'm nampula wattage all i'm going to say this man thing about billy joel and trump and i there's definitely symmetry and this is part of why hollywood resents trump to let's get make this clear trump was one of them like he was like basically like a hollywood swears level celebrity in the 80s like a jim j bullock mr t he was one of those people famous in the 80s hobnobbed with those people like when it when he would you know when he came to mind in the 80s early '90s you i associated him with like joan rivers people let people like that because he was of that ilk out and about new york city and i think when it when it comes to billy joel he would probably be drawn to the fact that billy joel and he's from that circuit but i think there's a quiet resentment there and you wanna know winds his billy joel dated in mainstream new york dance russia peremptory and stuff like that you got here and i think trump is such a competitive guy 'cause it's one thing about trump that i i think you know people say it's like this toxic insecurity that he's always got to be corn stuff like crowd size and stuff like that i think on some level he might have that unhealthy competitive drive at the swiss gowda burrow chip on his show yes like the size of the rock of gibraltar and and i think an an interesting comp for him always has been and will be arnold schwarzenegger yeah right schwarzenegger comes in the hollywood he's got to problems jeff or besides the fact that this green card lounger worthless assault with us i think he's got a little bit of an accent problem also he's just a bell a piece of muscle so there's no way that this guy is going to become a star in hollywood nobody took him seriously man he did the kind of work ethic that it required from him ju work it and do it but also the way that he was able to connect with audiences outside of the normal 'gatekeeping process i'll definitely of hollywood right and.
